FPL team tips GW29 – FFGeek contributors show their GW29 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.
At the end of each commentary I’ve included a transfer summary.
Joseph finished with an overall rank of 7k last season and 13k in 16/17
GW28 points: 42 (average 53) Total points 1,643 Gameweek rank 4,932k, Overall Rank: 143k, red arrow 37k, Team Value: £104.3m
Joe has all his chips in place.
A very poor midweek gameweek for my side though I do feel a little unlucky with how certain events panned out as summarised below:
– – Captain Salah failed to return despite playing 90 mins in a 5-0 win
– – Doherty lost his clean sheet in 91st min from a free kick which he had been booked for
– – Kolasinac picked up a knock meaning he was replaced in 57th min
– – Robertson registered 2 assists but was still outscored by TAA and VVD
– – Hazard was withdrawn on 59 mins
– – To round it off, I transferred in Rondon for Rashford which meant Schar’s 15 points were rooted to the bench whereas I would have started him if I had just saved the transfer
Pretty horrific stuff all in all, but I’m taking solace in the fact that the Rondon transfer means I’ve got some extra cash to play with this week!
My original plan for the weekend had been to bring in David Luiz for Kolasinac who faces Spurs and United next while he also blanks in GW31. However, after watching Bournemouth and Watford’s defensive displays on Wednesday, I decided that I couldn’t go without City coverage for their next two fixtures with the natural targets being Sterling and Aguero. I favoured the former due to his midweek rest and the fact that he is easier to fit into my team structure along with his great record against Bournemouth. He also presents somewhat of a differential compared to Aguero and, with my rank going nowhere fast, it feels like a good time to take a bit of a risk.
He is replacing Son in my team whose form has dropped in the last couple of games which meant I needed to find a little extra cash with Kolasinac to be used as funds. Ideally, I wanted to target a team with matches during the blank weeks which led me to West Ham as they have very good fixtures in the next three gameweeks. I have gone for the out of position prospects of Declan Rice who has played 90 mins in every game since GW5, though I am not expecting too much by the way of attacking returns.
For captaincy, I have to go for Sterling given the fixture and he looks certain to start after his midweek rest plus the impact he made off the bench. There is also a chance that he may play in the central striker role after Pep’s comments regarding Aguero’s tiredness. Bournemouth’s record against the top 6 gives me hope of only a second double figure captain haul in 14 gameweeks!
Best of luck to everyone this weekend and may your arrows be green!
Transfer Summary: Son and Kolasinac out for Sterling and Rice
Costas finished with an OR of 29k last season and 27k in 16/17
GW28 points: 72 (average 53) Total points 1,695 Gameweek rank 706k, Overall Rank: 42k, green arrow 21k, Team Value: £103.3m
Costas has used his 2nd wildcard
Great gameweek 20+ k green arrow on the overall rank. It was a victory for us who had Van Dijk over cheaper Liverpool defensive options. He is a top CB, a bonus magnet even in this Liverpool team and also has attacking potential.
I am transferring Rashford out for Barnes. This might came as a shock to a few but I explain: I do not have a wildcard so it is my strategy that up to gameweek 31 I will transfer players with no blanks. Rashford has only played 13min on WED so I fear his minutes will again be managed since Lukaku has scored a brace. Barnes has also a great home fixture
Captain- very very difficult. Its between 4 : Aguero currently has it but I am also thinking of Salah, Pogba and even Jimenez.
Rashford out for Barnes. Geek note: Late captain change. Pogba will be captain now
