Here’s my fantasy premier league team selection GW6 article which is a bit shorter and later as the Friday gameweek make getting everything done very challenging
fantasy premier league team selection GW6 – the FFGeek team
Firstly if you’re new to the site my last 3 seasons overall ranks are 36k, 17k and 21k.
Apologies I haven’t been able to get in all my usual articles. Friday game weeks are difficult
I went into alot of detail in my early thoughts on the FFGeek team article about GW5 so I won’t repeat that. Here’s the points and the basic stats:
GW5 points: 43 (FPL average 52) Total points 296, Gameweek rank 5,099k, Overall Rank: 534k, red arrow 331k, Team Value: £101.1m
Here’s the points:
43 points gameweek points. Overall rank of 534k and a red arrow of 331k. Not a great week.
2 free transfers and £1.1m in the bank.
Again I this will be short as again my early FFGeek team article was quite long on my transfer thoughts.
Ings and Rico are in the firing line with Abraham and Haller the options to replace Ings. The likely funding option is to sell Digne although in theory I could downgrade Robertson to Matip although I am very reluctant to do that. Soyuncu is my cheap option of choice but I don’t want to get rid of Digne when he’s home to Sheffield United so there’s no realistic funding option anyway for the transfer this week.
In any case the fixtures suit holding 1 more week anyway with Haller playing a defensively strong United at the moment and Abraham playing Liverpool so it’s not the end of the world (hopefully) to wait until next week. If Ings starts he is a good option v Bournemouth. If there is 1 lesson I’ve learnt over the years in FPL is NEVER take any attacker out before they play Eddie Howes incompetent defence (Nathan Ake apart). And NEVER EVER if Bournemouth are playing away.
So in summary: Rico out and Soyuncu in
So I will have 2 free transfers for next week
If you’ve seen my captain article you’ll see Sterling is the favourite in the poll. I don’t have the 2 others in Aguero and Aubameyang who are 2nd or 3rd so Sterling it is
Not difficult this week. New transfer Soyuncu, Dendoncker and Greenwood go to the bench
Here it is then:
Good luck everyone!
