FPL team tips GW13 – FFGeek contributors show their GW13 teams part 1
Here’s part 1 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. It also wont cover early transfers. It’s just to give an idea of the trends for the week no more.
Joseph finished with an overall rank of 7k last season and 13k in 16/17
GW12 points: 57 (average 48) Total points 797, Gameweek rank 1,242k, Overall Rank: 10k, red arrow 1k, Team Value: £103.9m
In all honesty, I struggle to completely recall the events from the last gameweek following an eventful international break where I thoroughly enjoyed the thrills that the Nations League provided. Looking back to FPL, I registered 57 points which unfortunately delivered my first red arrow since GW3, though I still happily sit just outside the top 10k. I had 4/11 returners with a gameweek rank of 1.2mil, but had just the one double figure haul from Robertson while captain Salah delivered his customary 8 points. Overall, I am still satisfied with my position and have looked to regroup over the international break in order to attack the Christmas period.
The main focus for my team over this period has been the same for many other managers – Mendy and Martial. The former will need to leave my team after his surgery and I was hoping to raise funds from his sale in order to raise money for the latter. The obvious defensive target for me is Doherty who is still not in my team for some reason, so he will be arriving once he is confirmed as fit. If he is ruled out, then I will likely look to Digne at Everton instead.
This move will allow me to bring in Martial for a -4 who has been in sparkling form and has a very promising long-term schedule. Last gameweek’s transfer, Diangana, will be the man to make way which means I will be holding onto Ross Barkley for now – mainly with next week’s fixture against Fulham in mind. He will actually be on my bench this week for his trip to Wembley as I have decided to double up on the Wolves defence by lining up with Bennett alongside new signing Doherty.
That Wembley trip rules out Hazard as a captain option for me which leaves it as a two-horse race between Salah and Aguero for their away trips to Watford and West Ham respectively. Richarlison has crossed my mind, but I’m happy to go with one of the big hitters; Aguero has the captaincy for now given City’s recent goal record at the London Stadium.
So in summary, Mendy will become Doherty to allow Diangana to be upgraded to Martial with the armband currently on Aguero.
Best of luck to everyone this weekend and may your arrows be green!
Alex finished in 17k last season 10k in 16/17 28k in 15/16 and 3k in 14/15
GW12 points: 57 (average 48) Total points 747, Gameweek rank 1,242k, Overall Rank: 88k, green arrow 5k, Team Value: £103.7m
Last week was another ‘meh’ week. A green arrow is always pleasing though, need to get a few of those in a row to keep pushing towards my goal of 20K by Xmas.
Decisions decisions. So I was all set for a -12 points hit (poor Geek had to lie down when I mentioned this to him!) this week and this still may happen as money is very tight on my planned moves. For now its a pretty dull -4; Peltier and Ricarlison in for Mendy and Billing. This is also gives me 2.5mil in the bank. The combined moves Jiminez/Martial for Mitrovic/Hojbjerg would leave me with 0.1 itb so prices are very tight.
This will go to the deadline. The issues for me are actually less about the hit and more about having to bench Brooks who I fancy could do well against the gunners and selling Mitro with a nice fixture and a new manager. I’m also happy to be moving money out of the backine. This decision will go to the wire. Capo is also tight; likely Salah but Kun or Rich also in with a shout. Good luck all!
Yaniv finished with an 8k OR last season
GW12 points: 67 (average 48) Total points 791, Gameweek rank 183k, Overall Rank: 13k, green arrow 8k, Team Value: £103.7m
Hi guys, it will be short this time, sorry about that.
It’s my third green arrow in a row, up to 13k and hope to be inside the top 10k after this Gwk. 6 returns out of 11 is good, with 3 CS from 2 Liverpool players (TAA added a nice assist) and Alonso plus 2 goals from Mo and Kun and assist from in form Jimenez, so decent week for a week without a transfer.
This week I had 2 transfers, and I already used one with Mendy out and Keane in, I know most people traded Mendy for Laporte, but Keane’s PPM is better then Laportes. It’s also because he is a big threat on goal in every corner or free kick, not like Laporte. I therefore think it was worth saving a £1.0m million. I still have one more FT and £1.8m ITB. I was thinking about Martial for Barkley (btw excellent article from Geek on Martial), but unless 100% news that he is fit I won’t make a transfer. If Doherty is fit, I am very satisfied with my starting 11, so there is a chance of saving the second transfer, and some cash as I have Kane in my mind for 2 weeks from now. BTW, if Martial will come in , I am not sure who to bench.
About the armband – It is the toughest call so far this season, and the Geeks great analysis didn’t help… so it will be last minute call between Mo, Kun or Richarlison!
Best of all to all of us!
Prakhar finished in 17th overall in fantasy premier league last season. An amazing achievement
GW12 points: 51 (average 48) Total points 766, Gameweek rank 2,451k, Overall Rank: 43k, red arrow 10k, Team Value: £103.2m
This is how the team looks ahead of GW13. Mendy goes out and in comes Robertson! Captaincy this week is a tricky one but I think Salah has the best chance of getting a big haul as Watford have proved to be unpredictable. I might take a hit which I will post on Twitter before the deadline.
Good luck everyone and may your arrows be green.
Sergio finished with an OR of 17k last season and 21k in 16/17
GW12 points: 59 (average 48) Total points 695, Gameweek rank 860k, Overall Rank: 410k, green arrow 72k, Team Value: £102.2m
GW12 was the definition of an average week for me with 59 points for a GW rank just under the million mark. I had 4 returners, all players very highly owned, so not much gains there. Then, other than Fabianski with 5 points thanks to saves and a bonus point, none of my differential players did anything other than getting flagged if not injured or banned.
Going into GW13, I had 2 free transfers available and I used the first one early on the transfer of Mendy to Dunk (I debated between Dunk and Digne, eventually going for the cheapest of them). For the second free transfer I am set on doing Snodgrass to one of Martial or Richarlison. Likely to be Martial. He seems to be fit given that he’s been pictured in training. As for the captain, plenty of options this week, at the moment I’ve got it in Martial if I do transfer him in, but you could make a case for Salah, Aguero or even Doherty.
Good luck for GW13 Geekers !
Here’s the team. Pretend Snodgrass is either, most likely, Martial or Richarlison.
