Here’s our fantasy premier league team selection GW30 article. We look at last week, the transfer thoughts, lineup dilemmas and the captain choice
fantasy premier league team selection GW30 – the FFGeek team for GW30
GW29 points: 30 (average 40) Total points 1,678, Gameweek rank 5,322k, Overall Rank: 168k, red arrow 40k, Team Value: £102.8m
Here’s the points:
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.
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
Pretty straightforward really. I suspect Yedlin won’t start which will bring Barnes on.
You can see my captain analysis article for any rational but I’m going for Aguero.
Here’s the team lineup then:
Good luck this week
