Kris O

Kris’s last 7 seasons ORs were 19k, 39k, 44k, 46k, 23k, 12k and 19k

GW11 Points: 72  (FPL average 42) Total points: 744, Overall Rank: 48k, green arrow: 46k  Team Value: £102.7m

Another green arrow and I’m into the top 50k for the first time this season.

My plan, barring any bad news at press conferences, is to roll my transfer.

I feel slight exposed without the popular: James, Chilwell, Foden, Jota, Kane, Son or Gallagher – but my players I might move on (notably Mbeumo, Toney and Ronaldo) have good fixtures and 2 free transfers next week gives more options (and information).

Team picks itself. Keeping life simple with captain Salah, though Ronaldo at Watford is tempting. Good luck everyone!

Sorry for the long time since my last write up, a busy life coming going in and out of lockdown, finishing study and generally looking after a young family has taken its toll!

The disaster of the Havertz captain in GW9 say me drop to 500k. Thankfully 2 green arrows has seen me climb back up to 134k and the highest rank of the season for me.

I’m pretty happy with the team with the exception of Foden, Jota and a Spurs attacker, with 2 frees I wanted to rectify that this week. With price moves forcing my hand last night, I moved Vardy/Havertz to Kane/Gallagher. By moving early and saving the 0.2 from Vardy falling and Gallagher rising I have left the option of Saka to Jota for a -4 with the exact cash.

I do like that move but equally it gives me a huge benching headache this week and means I lose Saka for Newcastle at home next week so I’m currently leaning to waiting till next week and selling Raphinia for Jota allowing me to hold Saka for Newcastle as well, I haven’t written off doing the Raphinha to Jota move this week also but that decision will go the deadline.

Good luck everyone!

Transfer summary: Vardy and Havertz out for Kane and Gallagher in

Sergio Torija

Sergio’s last 5 seasons overall ranks were 262k 2k, 596k, 17k and 21k

GW11 Points: 77  (FPL average 42) Total points: 682, Overall Rank: 504k, green arrow: 500k  Team Value: £102.5m

It feels like GW11 was ages ago, have had a full rest from FPL over the international break, and didn’t check my team until this evening. This reminded me that I had a ‘great’ bench week… with Pukki (9) and Cancelo (14) wasted in there. However, almost everyone else in my team returned so can’t be too upset on it, need to move on. The game week rank was 27K which is fantastic without chips.

This week the team feels well set up, with again decent bench cover, so no need to use my free transfer. I did have the brief thought of bringing a second keeper and benching Ramsdale this week away at Liverpool and in a couple of weeks time away at United. But then it feels a bit of a wasted transfer to bring a second keeper, which can as well backfire by me picking the wrong keeper (which is most likely I would do). So no transfer it is. Two next week will be handy if I need to deal with Havertz, which is a likely transfer waiting to happen when Lukaku/Werner/Pulisic/Ziyech are all back.

As for captaincy, last week I went with James instead of Salah and that was a minor gain of 2 points. Trying to repeat the trick this week, I’ve got Kane as captain, (yes I know he is not playing vs San Marino). Salah as vice.

good luck all
