fantasy premier league team selection GW37 – the FFGeek team for “GW37”


,

Here’s my fantasy premier league team selection GW37 article where I just give a quick update on what’s happening or not with the FFGeek team as the FPL site in it’s infinite wisdom keeps the gameweeks rolling.

fantasy premier league team selection GW37 – the FFGeek team for “GW37”

If you’re not familiar with the site my previous 3 seasons overall ranks are 36k, 17k and 21k 

I outline my  FPL strategy along with 10 other FFGeek contributors in our new EBook.

Although there is no return date set amid corona virus pandemic the fantasy premier league site remains open and accepts transfers.  For that reason I’m still going to give updates on the FFGeek team and any plans I may have.

Here’s my current position:

Total points: 1693 overall rank: 31k.  team value:  £102.7m transfers available: 1

2nd wildcard, bench boost and free hit still available

Here’s how the team looks prior to any transfers this week:

My FPL team structure

Again apologies to regular readers for the definition preamble.

If it’s the first time you’ve seen it here’s how I classify each player in my FPL team:

Template player: 7 of the 10 top FPL managers I follow have him in their team. I use the 10 managers as a proxy for serious FPL managers who will finish in the top 100k or so. People have different interpretations of what is an FPL template. There’s no true definition though.

Template replacement player: the player you choose to go head to head against a template player with.

Bench player: A player who will for the most part be on your bench. Sometimes there are bench rotaters but I won’t muddy the waters

Difference maker: these are the rest and the players who can move you forward or back. I don’t call them differentials as this implies an ownership threshold which I don’t use

Here’s my squad using these categories:

Plans for GW37

Remember the Gameweek 37 deadline is Saturday 9 May 14:00 UK time

I have 1 free transfer and £0.00 in the bank




Last week I had a decision between putting in Nick Pope who is a template player and putting in Maguire who is a representative of the 3rd best defence in the league.

In the end I went for Maguire as I thought the Man Utd defence with good fixtures could continue their clean sheet run.

My choice this week is to carry over the transfer to have maximum flexibility to see what fun the fantasy premier league site brings us in GW38 which is, ostensibly, the final gameweek of the season.  Alternatively my plan was to transfer out Holgate for Charlie Taylor of Burnley to at least cover the Burnley clean sheet if not cover the rather ridiculous propensity for Pope to get bonus points.

In the end I went for the option of carrying over the free transfer and we’ll see what GW38 brings.  So this week

I’m carrying over the free transfer

I won’t put the team up again as it’s exactly the same as above

  1. I am working on the assumption that all of the remaining games if played will be in GW38 so I’ve used these blank gameweeks to try and improve my bench. It may blow up royally in my face if that isn’t what happens.
    GK Leno, Pope
    DEF Alexander-Arnold, Alonso, Maguire, Soyuncu, Dann
    MID Salah, De Bruyne, Fernandes, Barnes, Henderson
    FOR Jimenez, Ings, Calvert-Lewin
    The forwards could do with an improvement but I haven’t worked out how yet without destroying the team.
