fantasy premier league teams GW11 – some early thoughts on the FFGeek team

Gameweek 10

Here’s my GW10 team selection article btw if you’re interested

GW10 points: 73 (average 58) Total points 651, Gameweek rank 1,072k, Overall Rank: 29k, green arrow 5k, Team Value: £102.7m

Here’s the points:

So if I look at my basic metrics for a gameweek then I’m just about ok.  A gameweek rank just about 1 million.  4 returners which is the minimum you’d hope for but 3 were double figures to compensate.  Lastly a small green arrow to 29k.  So definitely ok.

The week was helped out by an unusual save master class from Foster.  Not something he’s known for.  There was probably some evening out of luck with Foster as Wolves somehow lost to Brighton despite it being a 25 shot to 7 game.

Fulhams inability to handle counter attacks saw Fraser pick up 11 points although it was only a 1 shot performance.

Of the players that would negatively affect my score as they are held by a high proportion of active managers.  There are 3 effectively:

Wilson scored 13 points although I imagine many don’t hold Fraser and Wilson so Fraser would have offset that in the main

Richarlison was just 5 points

Maddison blanked

So no other player really hurt me I think.

The team planning schedule 

Here’s the team planning schedule.  I think it’s fairly self explanatory

2 free transfers and £1.4m in the bank

Likely transfer

So you can see the planned transfer this week has been Bennett out Mendy in and Lacazette out and Arnautovic in.  They are both good entry and exit points with Wolves playing Spurs and Arsenal playing Liverpool.  I’d like to keep Lacazette but he really is my only source of funds to get Arnautovic and Mendy.  You can see from the fixture ease article how good a run of fixtures West Ham have.

I do have 2 alternatives:

The first is keeping Lacazette and  transferring out Fraser for Brooks (that would be reliant on the unlikely scenario of no price rises) or Murphy of Cardiff.  That just leaves me with a fairly threadbare midfield though.

The second alternative would be Mitrovic out for Ings in which would give me enough cash for Mendy but not Arnautovic.  That would also mean Mitrovic missing the GW11 game at Huddersfield which isn’t ideal.

However all this could be scuppered as the transfer depends on Arnautovic’s fitness as he has a virus apparently and has an ongoing knee issue.

The other question is that of Hazard if he is a longer term injury then the question becomes whether he should be transferred out.  That would scupper Arnautovic unfortunately and where I go from there is difficult.  Possibly to a City midfielder or to Mane as Liverpool have Fulham in a couple of weeks.  However I’ll decide that if and when it becomes an issue.

You can plan all you want but most of the time you will be doing reactive transfers due to injuries and players being dropped rather than pro-active ones

Other monitors

Of the other changes I’ve moved Foster to Fabianski back until GW14 which is after West Ham play Man City.

I’ve taken Alexander Arnold off the exit list and put him on the rotation monitor list.  If everyone apart from maybe Van Dijk is going to be a regular rotation target perhaps I should just stick with the option I have which is at the cheaper end.

I’ve given myself more time for the Fraser exit as they are peppered with tricky fixtures going forward now.  His lack of goal threat isn’t ideal (1 shot in the last 4 games) but he’s definitely performing for the price.

I’ve identified Murphy of Cardiff as a possible replacement for Ward who is injured and I imagine will struggle to get back in.  That could also be Brooks of Bournemouth if he holds his place although the double up on Bournemouth seems a bit unnecessary.

Mitrovic I’ve given some potential exit dates to although he has a good fixture next at Huddersfield.

Likely transfer

2 free transfers and £1.4m in the bank

So, subject to Arnautovic’s fitness and the Hazard injury situation, the planned transfers are Mendy in for Bennett out and Arnautovic in for Lacazette out.

However there will be no transfer until Friday and as we’ve seen anything is possible.  No European games this week just EFL cup matches to worry about.

Captain thoughts

Hard to go past Aguero this week although the polls as ever may change my view.  I’m not sure when I’m going to put the poll up.  Man City play Fulham on Thursday in the EFL Cup for whatever reason although Aguero is incredibly unlikely to play I would have thought.  The makeup of the rest of the Man City team may affect votes.  Also the fitness of Hazard at home to Palace may also sway the votes. So I might do another Friday poll so everyone is voting with full information.

Lineup issues

No issues there.  The bench picks itself as you’ll see below

Pretend Bennett is Mendy and Lacazette is Arnautovic and Hazard is fit!

That’s it hope you had a good gameweek

  1. How about swapping Ross barkley for Hazard, that would put some money in the bank to strengthen the rest of the team?

    • Hi mate

      Thanks for the suggestion. Hazard’s ability to get double figure points and the fact that every active manager owns him just makes him to scary not to own. Appreciate the feedback though. Cheers and good luck this week

    • Barkley game time not guaranteed. Plenty of options in that Chelsea midfield for Sarri. Also Barkley likely to start cup game this week making him a doubt for weekend.

  2. On wildcard and my focus is to win my mini league.


    Gk Fabianski Hamer
    D Alonso Mendy Duffy Doherty Schindler
    M Salah Hazard Camarasa Barkley Fraser
    F Aguero Wilson Murray
    1.1 M in the bank

    Wanted to get Salah in and keep Hazard and Aguero to get the most likely big hitters my opponents just behind me in my mini league have. Also toyed with alternative line ups with Mane in for Camarasa but with Mendy out for Wan-Bissaka and Murray out for Kamara. Option C was with heavy hitters in defence.

    • Hi mate. It looks pretty solid to me. I would probably want a Liverpool defender in there myself although it could easily wait until after the Arsenal match. You have the cash to upgrade Schindler for either Alex Arnold , Gomez or Lovren. All will be rotated unfortunately but I suspect only Van Dijk will be safe in that respect. I’m not sure given a fixture turn that I would stick with 2 Bournemouth players but they are both in good form

      Good luck this week

    • Agree with Geek here. Bournemouth have United next with Arsenal, City and Liverpool in their next 6. I too own both Fraser and Wilson, and this week is going to be the exit point for either one of them (if not, definitely after the Newcastle game). Maybe get Arnie in for Wilson and a Liverpool defender too? You can also consider Maddison in the midfield since Leicester’s fixtures look good.

  3. I had a fantastic week this week. 94 points including 5 players getting 10+ points. GR of 88k, with green arrow of 55k to 25k overall.
    I have 2FT and 0 in the bank at the moment and going to wait another week. After Spurs play Arsenal in a few weeks, Spurs have a great run of fixtures so I am thinking of how to get Kane in, possibly to play alongside Aguero!

  4. Interestingly, I don’t have Salah, yet ended up with 72 points. Thanks to Mane, Wilson and Mendy of course.
    Took a brave decision to captain Robertson with Kun as VC (sorry, Mane) after I told Geek that home to Cardiff is a great entry point and lo! He didn’t even start! Smart move, Geek, for not listening to me!
    And now I’m torn between sticking with Mane and getting Salah in (the ownership scares me a fair bit) for his teammate who scored the same number of points. Not to mention, I’ll be losing Mane’s value too, for I’ve had him since GW1.

    • Hi mate

      I don’t know whether it was a smart move on my part I just gambled that with Gomez and TAA playing in the UCL that it had to be a 50/50 call.

  5. Hi geek my team is
    Patricia Hamer
    Wan Basica, TAA, Alonso, Doherty, Mendy
    Salah, Mane, Madison, Fraser, Hjoyberg,
    Aguero, Mitro. Arnie
    I’ve got 2FTand 1.1 in the bank.
    Any thoughts?

  6. Hi Geek,
    My team currently is:
    With 2 free transfers and 0 in the bank I want to switch to 3 playing strikers by taking out Maddison. I feel like with Newcastle away he may get some points though. Any advice? Tempted for this gameweek to take out Ryan for Fabianski with West Ham’s great run of fixtures and see out this gameweek.

  7. Thank you so much for the feedback.

    Option A, B or C what would you choose?


    Gk Fabianski Hamer
    D Alonso Mendy Duffy Doherty Lovren
    M Salah Hazard Kayal Barkley Fraser
    F Aguero Wilson Murray


    Gk Ederson Hamer
    D Alonso Mendy Duffy Doherty Schindler
    M Salah Hazard Camarasa Barkley Fraser
    F Aguero Wilson Murray


    Gk Fabianski Hamer
    D Alonso Wan-Bissaka Duffy Doherty Schindler
    M Salah Hazard Mane Barkley Fraser
    F Aguero Wilson Kamara

  8. In my opinion… you should go with option D. That is, get rid of Fraser and Wilson. I think given that Bournemouth are now entering a long run of tough fixtures that a double up on them is not wise. In fact I would get rid of both. If you have the funds then an upgrade of Wilson to Arnie is recommended. Fraser is more difficult as there is nobody worthwile getting at his price. Again you would need more funds for an upgrade… perhaps to Richarlison.
    If none of this is possible then I would go with option A.

  9. Hi Geek
    Whats your thoughts on bringing in success to free up funds to upgrade Ward? Something might be worth considering?

    • I think at the moment I’m not thinking further than a small upgrade to say Murphy of Cardiff and that will happen in the round. As long as Hojbjerg is fit this week I’ll still have 2 playing subs which I’m ok while there are other things going on. I also think success could be ousted for Deeney and Deulofeu as a support striker

      Cheers for the suggestion and good luck this week

  10. Interesting as always!

    Here’s my team. Have two transfers and 0.2 in the bank, any thoughts?. Trying to get a Chelsea defender in and also maybe get rid of knockaert.

    Ederson, button
    Mendy, Robertson, Doherty, Bennett, wba
    Richarlison, knockaert, Salah, hazard, hojberg
    Wilson, Arnie, aguero.

    • Hi mate

      I would agree with you that a Chelsea defender looks the prioirty as well as getting rid of Knoackaert and maybe BennetT. That would mean moving to 4-3-3. Team looks good though

      Hope that helps and good luck this week

  11. Thanks again for all the help!

    How about:

    Gk Fabianski Hamer
    D Alonso Mendy Duffy Doherty Robertson
    M Salah Hazard Barkley Fraser Camarasa
    F Aguero Success Murray

    1.0 m left. Weakness is Camarasa and Success. Where to spend the 1 k?

    • I would upgrade one of the players you mention

      In midfield the options are Kenedy, Brooks, Cardiff Murphy and Paterson

      Up front probably only Vokes of Burnley in the price

      All have some gametime risk though. It comes with the price

      Good luck
