Firstly if you’re new to the site my last 4 seasons overall ranks are 17k, 36k, 17k and 21k.
GW7 points: 58 (FPL average 53) Total points 378, Overall Rank: 1,939k, green arrow 183k Team Value: £100.1m
I haven’t used any chips yet
Here’s the points:
As I said in my early FFGeek team article
So although it was a green arrow of 183k it was an incredibly disappointing gameweek. When James Ward Prowse gets 17 points and Mitrovic 2 assists then you’ve got to be hoping for real rank movement and 183k going forward to 1.939m in the end was very disappointing. At one stage over the gameweek I was 1.4m but the late Grealish goal was a real rank killer.
In the end I was behind the average score of the 10 top FPL managers I follow this week and actually dropped down in the FFGeek Contributors League.
I’m still 47 points behind the average of the 10 top Managers and last of the 10 when I would actually hope to be around the average and at least 6th. The wrong captain choices and not covering their template has hurt me bad.
I’m 85 points behind the top 50k overall rank which is still catchable but this week should have been a week where I made progress towards that not stay stuck in the 80’s away from it.
£1.0m in the Bank and 1 free transfer
I’ve got 2 problems to solve. Saiss having lost his place and Antonio injured
As Antonio could be back for a good fixture run after the break I’ve concentrated on Saiss. My prime target is Chilwell who has a good set of fixtures coming up. I could either take out 1 of the Liverpool players and potentially have no subs with Saiss, Antonio and Reed a potentially non playing bench or replace Saiss and rely on taking out Kane next week when they play Man City so I can get in Calvert Lewin vs Fulham. Otherwise it will be -4.
I haven’t ruled out wildcarding over the International break so I’ve decided to go for the Saiss transfer
Saiss out Chilwell in
The FFGeek Captain poll was firmly with Kane so he’s my choice.
Antonio is out but in case of a miracle recovery I’ve put him in safe in the knowledge that Soucek will come in for him.
Here’s the lineup
Good luck everyone
