I talk in more detail in my early FFGeek team article if you’re interested

GW28 was my worst gameweek of the season by gameweek rank GW29 became my 2nd worst as well the 2nd consecutive week with a gameweek rank of over 5 million.

100k has been added to my OR in the last 2 weeks and I’m now 168k OR.

Only 3 returning players and again the worst captain pick.

Transfer thoughts

1 free transfer and £0.3m in the bank. I’ve got all my chips in place and I’m working towards a blanks and doubles strategy of:

Free transfers to blank GW31, Free Hit in double GW32, free transfer to blank GW33, Wildcard GW34 and Bench Boost in double GW35. At the moment I have 7 players guaranteed fixtures in GW31 with free 2 transfers before then.  Yedlin seems to have lost his place though so it could be 6 plus 2. In the blank of GW33 I will get one of Wan Bissaka or Foster as one of them has to lose in the quarter finals of the FA Cup.

I’ve thought about a multitude of different options from carrying over the free to a minus 8.  The fact that Bournemouth, West Ham and Leicester all have decent fixtures in this gameweek and generally afterwards has made me tempted definitely.

However, unless things change tomorrow though in the end I decided to just do the 1 transfer of Doherty out and Chilwell in.  I’ve been reluctant to sell Doherty as I have a decent amount of cash tied up in him.  My sale value is £4.9m and my buy back value is £5.5m.  He is due to go down in price tonight and I can imagine some falls before GW31 when he doesn’t have a fixture so I’m just going to live with it.

I did think about selling Rashford for King and Hojbjerg for Barnes or Brooks who are both players I like.  However I thought I’d leave further transfers for next week when I could sell Pogba or Aguero to get Vardy and/or Mane which I can’t realistically do at the moment without selling Pogba.

That’s it Doherty out and Chilwell in

The team planner

Lineup issues

Pretty straightforward really.  I suspect Yedlin won’t start which will bring Barnes on.

Captain thoughts

You can see my captain analysis article for any rational but I’m going for Aguero.

The team

Here’s the team lineup then:

  1. Hi Geek,

    I don’t understand what you mean when you say “My sale value is £4.9m and my buy back value is £5.5m.” Doherty’s value is £5.1m right now, why do you say your sell value is lower than that? Are you predicting that it will cost £5.5 to buy him back later?

    • Hi Omar,
      Doherty’s current price is 5.5. But the ones who bought him at 4.5 could sell him at 5 (half between buying and selling price).
      The gameweek works like this.
      I recommend to read the game rules. This is a very important thing to know.

  2. Always tricky when value is tied up in players. If I sold Doherty at 5.1 it would cost me 5.5 to buy him back, Jimenez 6.4 would cost me 6.9 to buy him back, and Pogba 8.7 would cost me 9.0. With 1.2m tied up in these players, I am holding as they are the three I need to keep and can’t afford to buy back if I sell now. I have 11 for blank week 31 aside from these three “keepers”.. I am also playing Doherty and Jiménez at Chelsea rather than benching them !!

  3. Ive done the yaniv option…with fh planned for 31

  4. Hi Geek,
