This is part 3 of the FPL managers who contribute to the FFGeek site with good histories who show their teams each week. This will give people a feel for what other managers are doing. It’s a fairly informal thing with no obligation on anyone and these teams may change at anytime before the deadline without further notice. In the future it also wont cover early transfers. It’s just to give an idea of the trends for the week no more.

The gameweek stats are after the Friday game thanks to

Yaniv Salomon

Yaniv finished with an overall rank of 4k last season and 8k in 17/18

Yaniv still has his Free Hit chip

Hi! 1 FT before the 38 Free Hit team, still don’t have a clue what to do, maybe I will just leave it like this or change Lascelles for Baldock for backup, for now the armband on Bruno,
Good luck all!

Transfer summary:  to be confirmed

Here’s the team prior to any transfers being made:

Ben Wooton

Ben’s last 3 seasons overall rank were 61k, 26k and 31k.

GW36+ points: 49  (FPL average 39) Total points 2,252, Overall Rank: 3k, no rank movement, Team Value: £104.7m

Ben still has his Free Hit chip

Here’s my team.  I haven’t made a move yet but if I do it will likely be Giroud or Greenwood out for Wood.  Otherwise it’s a defender in which doesn’t feel right.  However a defender like James Tarkowski is most likely or Digne

Transfer summary:  to be confirmed

Here’s the team prior to any transfers:

Scott Taylor

Scott finished with an overall rank of 1k last season and 12k in 17/18

GW36+ points: 58  (FPL average 39) Total points 2,202, Overall Rank: 18k, green arrow 3k, Team Value: £105.4m

Scott still has his Free Hit chip left

I still haven’t decided what my transfer will be this week. I was planning to do Mane to Sterling but am worried about the FA cup semis which take place after the game week deadline. If Sterling comes in I’d have 7 players in the semis and so 7 injury risks. I also already have De Bruyne and Jesus on the Pep roulette wheel. However, Sterling has the better fixture and is the better risk/reward option. A little more thinking needed. If I don’t do Mane to Sterling I would take Lascelles out for a Burnley defender to strengthen my bench (feels a little dull for a one week punt!).

Captain will be Fernandes. Vice would probably have been a Man City player but again, I’m concerned about injuries in the FA Cup semis so have put it on Jimenez at the moment (although his wife is due very soon so he could miss the game too!).

Rick Porter

Rick’s last 3 seasons overall ranks were 1k, 30k and 2k

GW36+ points: 54 – 4  (FPL average 39) Total points 2,170, Overall Rank: 43k, red arrow 2k, Team Value: £105.2m

Rick has used all his chips

I’m quite thankful to be treading water this week, though whether I’ll keep my slim green or suffer a small red after the final match is completed and the subs come in is anyone’s guess.

On seeing that Alonso was starting against Norwich – and thinking my bench was a bit shallow with both Aurier and Lascelles doubts – I took a last minute -4 to bring him in. It was a punt that could have easily paid off but with Doherty grabbing an assist off the bench I actually ended up 1 point worse off. I’ve made worse mistakes.


Looking ahead, I know I need to get rid of Alonso. That was always the plan. It was very much a one week gig. Burnley assets are tempting as they face Norwich and while the obvious choice is Tarkowski, I think I’ll be bringing in Pieters. The money I save means that I have the option of swapping Foden to D. Silva for GW38 if there’s nothing else that needs sorting.


He’s getting an attacking return of some description every week, so it’s likely to be Bruno again. Ings vice.

Transfer summary:  likely Alonso out Pieters in

Here’s the team prior with the transfer assumed

Rob Cosgrove

Rob’s last 3 seasons overall rank were 45k, 40k and 23k

GW36+ points: 86 – 8  (FPL average 39) Total points 2,155, Overall Rank: 61k, green arrow 48k, Team Value: £102.3m

Rob still has his triple captain

Note: Written before West Ham VS Watford game!

What a game week!! I never would have dreamed of a game week rank of 519 AFTER an 8 point hit! This will more than likely drop after the West Ham game but what a turnaround! This puts me just outside top 50k which was my target anyway so very happy manager here!

Now I face myself with a few problems:

1) Chelsea’s last 2 fixtures are not ideal and I have 2 of their players;
2) Trent Alexander Arnold needs to go.
3) who do I take out for Aubameyang and when?!

1) Looking at Chelsea, I believe they will have a go at Liverpool and Liverpool’s end of season form is not great. But do I pray for an Azpilicueta assist because I know he will not keep a CS? Will Pulisic be rotated after the FA cup (or even injured?) if Pulisic plays I think he will cause Trent Alexander Arnold and Gomez problems so could get a return. The Wolves game will be very tight so I will more than likely transfer him out in GW38. As for Azpilicueta, I may be forced to hold for both games as I have other transfers planned in my head already!

2) Not much more to say there really. No attacking returns since GW31+ and was benched for the last home game. I will be removing him this week (cue a free kick goal!)

3) It’s between Vardy and Rashford. I have a strong feeling that the Man Utd VS Leicester game could be a crazy score line and Rashford does love to score against Leicester. Vardy will want golden boot so will both players score? I don’t know, but I feel Aubameyang will get a double figure return vs Watford.

My GW38 plan is to bring in Sterling as triple captain and Aubameyang, but who for is the million dollar question. Even I don’t know yet. To give me more money in the back I will be taking out Trent this week for Pieters of Burnley. Would prefer Tarkowski but need as many pennies in the bank as I can – This will leave me 5.2mil going into the last game week! Defenders look like a hard call for GW38 apart from Burnley and Man City, but I already made the mistake of trying to guess Man City defence when I put Laporte in the other week.

I wouldn’t be surprised if I did another 8 point hit GW38..we shall see!

Summary: Trent Alexander Arnold OUT, Pieters IN
Captain: Martial

Here’s the team with the transfer made

Stephen Troop

Stephen’s last 3 seasons overall rank were 43k, 52k and 64k

GW36+ points: 51  (FPL average 39) Total points 2,135, Overall Rank: 94k, green arrow 1k, Team Value: £102.9m

Stephen still has his Free Hit Chip

Likely transfer = Foster > Pope with a view to Free Hitting in the final gameweek

Captain currently on Fernandes as United need to win remaining league games to get CL spots so likely to start whereas City could rest De Bruyne/Jesus etc. This could change to Salah, however who won’t have the FA cup match and is due a goal with the chances he has had.

transfer summary:  Likely Foster OUT Pope IN
