Rick Porter

Rick’s last 3 seasons OR are 1k, 30k and 2k

You can see an interview with Rick here as he discusses his FPL strategy

Look, I really want Sterling in this team.

He’s looking dangerous and I expect him to have an amazing season. But it’s a flat out choice between him and Aguero and, right now, I’m not brave enough to go against my gut and drop the man who’s served me so well in the past and is so prolific when it comes to hat-tricks. I also like the fact that it gives me an easy route to Kane or Auba if need be.

That said, I’ll be watching closely on Sunday and if there’s any hint that he may not be ready for GW1 I’ll be making the switch to Sterling. This move will inevitably mean a boatload of other changes.

So what have I had the stones to change? Well, Che Adams has really impressed me. He’s not a guaranteed starter, but I’m very hopeful. He’s been great pre-season and while that’s often not an indication of anything at all, I have a good feeling and I’m willing to take a punt on him. I need to find some cheap gems that go against the early template and while the Greenwood pile-on is tempting, I can’t see him getting consistent minutes and it would just move me further down the template rabbit hole.

I mean, a potentially starting £4.5m Man U forward? It just feels like a trap, right? Between possible plummeting value and a lack of easy/worthwhile options of what to do with a £4.5m forward if you want rid, it’s not something I want to dabble in. If he plays against Chelsea and is clearly a better choice than Adams then I’ll dine on early humble pie and get him for GW2. That means I can enjoy the extra £1.5m while Man U play the easier matches that follow.

My other changes are fairly meh. Mendy has become Zinchenko for obvious reasons, though I have kept 0.5 in the bank just in case I want to upgrade to Walker after the match on Sunday. Wan Bissaka is also on my mind. As is my lack of Liverpool double defence.

Pereyra has become Grealish – though this spot will likely change a lot over the next week as I try to squeeze value out of it.

As Adams will be on the pitch, I needed another cheap bencher. That in mind, I switched Ake for £4.0m defender Lundstram, who has played some good minutes as a midfielder pre-season. He may not play, but between him, Dendoncker and Kelly I should get a point or two from my bench if it’s needed.

Scott Taylor

Scott’s last 2 seasons OR have been 1k and 12k

Since my last draft team on the website, I’ve changed Pope to Gunn and Digne to Azpilicueta. The rest of the team is the still the same.
The Heaton transfer hasn’t happened yet so Pope’s starting place is not guaranteed. Gunn is the best of the starting £4.5m goalkeepers in my view (the other starting options being Henderson and Ryan). I’m still nervous about not having a premium keeper and can see Ederson or Lloris being my final choice.
The uncertainty in Everton’s defence caused me to transfer Digne out. Zouma looks like he’s staying at Chelsea and Gueye has gone to PSG. This greatly reduces Digne’s clean sheet potential. Therefore Azpilicueta came in – an almost certain starter in a good defence with reasonable attacking potential. That said, I’m still tempted by an Everton full back with their great starting fixtures and being close to signing Kean from Juventus. So I wouldn’t be surprised if Coleman or Digne make my final side.
My other question mark is Zinchenko. I’m hoping the Community Shield gives me comfort that he’ll start GW1. If not, Walker may come in (and so Coleman would most likely replace Azpilicueta to find the extra 0.5m).
I’m reasonably happy with the rest of my team. However it will need to be changed if I want a premium keeper. In order to get the 1.5m for Pope to Ederson, the most likely transfer I’ll make is Wilson to King or it could be Robertson/TAA to VVD and Fraser to Brooks. If it was Pope to Lloris then I’d likely replace Fraser with Brooks for the extra 1m.
Then there’s any transfers that happen between now and deadline day to consider although I usually like to see how a new signing settles in before putting them in my team.
No doubt there will be a few changes to my team before next week!

Kev from Canada

Kev’s last 2 seasons OR are 6k and 195k

A few conceptual thoughts on why my team has changed so much since the first draft team:

•Steling’s strong preseason at striker has led to everyone else transferring him in. I feel he will be a captain favourite in GW2 and GW4 over Salah so I figured I need him but it impacted the makeup of everything else.

•I don’t like 5 at the back. I understand that over a season the value is there and there are not a lot of good £5.5/6M attackers at the moment. It comes down to the fact I watch a lot of the games and a CS disappearing is the most frustrating feelings next to a Captain blank. I don’t want to cheer for 5 clean sheets every week. I think I will be ok if I can eliminate the main risks (LFC and MCI coverage).

•I plan to wild card GW4. This hasn’t changed. My mentality is to plan for GW4 and if things are looking really well, keep postponing week by week.

•I want the value players as they emerge. It looks like CHE and MUN has the strongest chance of spitting one of the first ones out. Although ideally I would prefer them from a team with little rotation. I changed the format of the squad to have an easy transfer at forward and mid for the £8m/£7.5m or below break out players.

•I spent the £1.5m I had in the bank. I needed to for Raheem but it was there for the value breakout player transfer anyway and I am set up more balanced for that now so I am hoping I am fine.

Squad notes:

•MCI and LFC D Coverage: Ederson, TAA, VVD

•Rotate £4.5m D for third D: I have Chambers and Diop as the fixtures work. I may change Chambers to Cathcart but Chambers started a lot of recent preseason and a £4.5m ARS is value. Rotating £4.5m has an added benefit of having a decent bench option over the first few weeks if needed.

*Note: no Everton D is a risk of course with Digne at 27% but it is one I feel like I want to make. A £5.5m+ D has to have high clean sheet probability imo. Losing Gueye and Zouma is just too unattractive to me in my opinion. I am out.

•Salah/Sterling yadda yadda yadda

•Fraser likely transfers to a breakout midfield Chelsea player as prices start moving. Two great fixtures while I assess and two great mid term fixtures if the plan has to change.

•Pérez is new to my portfolio. I typically don’t like promoted players or new signings. However in the recent preseason match he played OOP next to Vardy. He is also over 12% owned so he is almost cover and if he scores early he should build team value. If he doesn’t score early his GW3 and 4 matches are great so he should hold his value as people wait for those matches instead of dropping him. It should be fun watching LEI play this season too. Vardy is in my early WC thoughts.

•Wilson far out paces King in any per game or per 90 metric. He’s near the top of the charts in PP90. He also scored a very nice preseason goal that got me excited. Most importantly he can be swapped to a break out striker if we learn info in first two weeks. Not having PK is King’s only saving grace in comparisons and if that is all I cared about my team would have Pogba and Matt Ritchie in it.

•My two differential FWDs are both on penalties and have good fixtures:

-Murray is old and has Andone waiting but he had a decent preseason. Groß is a risk to PK. Murray was a streaky, early season scorer last year and is in preseason form so… hes in.

-Deeney gets a bad name for his cards but he only had 4 yellows last season and 2 reds over 2 seasons. Hes the clear penalty taker and Deulofeu has a slight knock right now. Great 4 fixtures.

•Last thought. There are a few value players that I have my eye on as the transfer market is still open. For example, if Zaha moves then Max Meyer may come in as my fifth midfielder instead of one of the value forwards. He has been excellent in pre season.

Prakhar Patel

Prakhar finished with a 17k OR last season and an incredible 17th overall the season before

Costas Chari

Costas’s last 3 seasons OR are 84k, 29k and 27k

A lot of changes since my first draft (12) but that was a very early draft anyway!

I have gone with double at the back and as City cover I went with Zinchenko over Walker and freed £0.5m. Ryan as my cheap GK with good fixtures Has stayed put.

Salah and Sterling were chosen as my premiums and rotating captains. Sigurdsson and Fraser kept their place since last time and I have added Tielemans instead of Digne and changed system. The reasoning behind this is with Digne £6.0m I would really only expect points from attacking returns since Zouma, Gueye and Keane are not in the picture. So I went for Tielemans which a really rate highly.

Up front I am with King and Deulofeu at the moment!

Possible changes:

1) I will need Azpilicueta from GW3 so might include him from the start
2) I am worried about Siggy as well as Everton are awful pre season and Calvert Lewin is not a prolific finisher for Siggys deliveries. Moise Kean could change that.
3) worried about being too exposed on Bournemouth with 2 attacking players and might switch Fraser to martial.

Still a week to go lets hope last friendlies and Community Shield shed some light

Sergio Torija

Sergio finished with an OR last season of 596k and 17k and 21k before that

Since the game opened I had assumed a team with Salah & Agüero. In a yearly tradition, as the start of the game approaches I try to fit Kane into my team. So there it goes, still wanted to keep a City attacker, so have to settle for De Bruyne, at the expense of a playable third striker. In midfield I could still remove Siggy or Martial for a cheaper 4th mid and redistribute funds. Single City and Liverpool defence due to price, still not settled on the cheap defence spots
