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.

Chris Tucker

Chris’s last 2 seasons overall rank were 17k and 1k

GW2 points: 56 (average 41) Total points 141 Gameweek rank 567k, Overall Rank: 192k, green arrow 401k, Team Value: £100.1m

It’s always pleasing when a transfer immediately pays off, and Pukki certainly saved my gameweek, making up for my captain failure. As I said last week, Norwich look like they will score goals, and Pukki is often involved when they do. He might not score week in, week out, but he still looks fantastic value to me.

This week, I made the early transfer of Fraser to Martial. Often playing in a central forward position, at just 7.6 Martial offered too much value to ignore. I’m also being punished in my main mini-league for a lack of United cover.

I am reasonably happy with my team at the moment. The Liverpool double up in defence stays. I do believe that in the near future they will punish those that haven’t shown patience. But I will reassess come my likely GW5 wildcard.

My main issue at the moment is that I can’t find a way of getting KDB in without taking significant hits. I really want him, but it will almost certainly have to wait until my early wildcard. At that point, there is a good chance that Ryan, Zinchenko and Perez will say their goodbyes. I just hope KDB doesn’t inflict too much damage in the meantime!

Captain this week is Sterling. He’s in incredible form at the moment, although I can see Salah being in the points against Arsenal. Again, I do wonder if too many people are writing him off too soon, on the back of one poor performance. Remember that patience with him was a key learning point from last season.

Best of luck to you all!

GW1 Recap

☆ Keeper

The best way into the City D only got me only 2 points but I can still sleep at night owning him. It deals with the City D coverage and as a quality of life, stress hedge. Does Zinchenko’s cramp mean rest? Is Cancelo going to debut any game now? Will Fernandinho play CB some matches? Mendy is training? Have fun with Pep’s bulls**t roulette.

☆ Defenders

I wasn’t planning on Holebas entering the lineup but Barkley didn’t play. Not my favourite memory from last weekend. However, Holebas has good matches so I will eat his price drop to play him. He has taken 9 corners if your glass is half full. Dunk almost kept a clean but it is not a big deal that he didn’t. He got me a bp. The other two are template players. Digne scored big and seems to have avoided an injury. Being template makes him less interesting though. My defence is being kept as boring as possible with the main focus being to hedge pain away and still get me core points.

☆ Midfielders

Salah/Sterling are still my favourite premiums in a two premium side. I captained Salah and I would do it again. Barkley is my own fault. I will own it. He is gone now. I wont get sucked into Mount, as I now feel it is unfortunately still too early to read Chelsea. Dilva on the bench sucks but hopefully that means he gets next game. He was bizarrely the furthest forward player when he came on based on my eye test. As much as Barkley was a bad gamble, Martial was a home run. Very happy with how my 89th minute preseason change of Siggy/Zinchenko to Martial/Digne has worked out.

☆ Forwards

Wilson with another phantom FPL assist. Not a bad parting gift. I like Ings. Even when he started on the bench I had this odd feeling he would still return. What a fluke, although he should have had another after so let’s call it even.

Upcoming GW3

☆ Musical Chairs

I am looking to get what I perceive as ‘breakout value players’ at as low a cost as possible right now. Not so much to ‘fit in’ KDB, Kane, etc. I don’t want to blow up my team or take hits to swap premiums around. Pretty much all the premiums look elite to me. I want 2018 Jimenez.. I made two transfers: Barkley to Cantwell at 6m-4.5m and Wilson to Pukki 8m-6.7m. I could have got Pukki cheaper but wanted to wait on matches to all be played and wanted to research his underlying stats more. Let’s just say they are good so far.

I currently have 2.8m in the bank. I am not going to spend it for another hit. I like how my matchups look. Based on the frenzy of activity at this point in the season I think I value the money itb to capitalise on next week’s Pukki type of performance player. Maybe, maybe not. I may just go Ings to Rasford, Dilva to KDB, Holebas to Shaw or Maquire, etc. instead. We will see.

☆ Captain

Sterling on form.

☆ Substitute decisions

Straightforward this week. Cantwell, Greenwood, Rico.

Good luck.

5 thoughts on “FPL team tips GW3 – FFGeek contributor’s teams part 3”

  1. Hi All,

    I am thinking of Wildcarding this week as I have two many repairs to do to my team (double up Liverpool defence, Bournmouth players, Perez to name but a few) and am edging towards getting rid of Salah to have a better spread in my midfield. But Salah ownership worries me but I desperately want KDB in my team as I feel he will be incredible value this year and be a 200+ point scorer. I also think Ndombele could be the bargain midfielder of the year, same for Martial playing up front. I also feel Mane may be better value and not be far of Salah again this season.

    My original plan was to focus my budget towards defence/midfield points, but ended up getting pulled towards 2 playing strikers.

    Current team:

    Ryan/Button
    Digne/Reobertson/VVD/Zinchenko/Lundstram
    Fraser/Salah/Sterling/Perez/Dendonker
    Wilson/Delefeou/Greenwod

    Wildcard team (but 1.3m over budget):

    Ryan/Button
    Digne/Wan-Bisaka/VVD/Zinchenko/Lundstram
    Martial/Mane/Sterling/KDB/Ndombele
    Pukki/Greenwod/Barnes

    Not quite sure how to adjust that to fit budget. Any ideas? I could choose a non playing striker instead of Barnes to revert to my original plan of value in defence and midfield.

    If I were to do my usual transfers this week it would likely be Fraser for Martial and Perez to Ndombele and then move towards KDB. But City fixtures are too good to miss for me.

    • Yeh I’d swap ndombele for cantwell to make your budget. I’d also be tempted to swap pope for Ryan because of the long term fixtures for both.

      • Thanks for the suggestion.

        In the end I have kept Salah and swapped Barnes to Wickham and kept Dendonker in.

        I have 1.4m in the bank so was tempted to swap Zinchenko for Laporte. But I’ll leave that spare.

        I will be playing 5-4-1 or 4-5-1 depending on fixture ease between Dendocker and Lundstram.

        Tough call on the keeper as both have a tough next game. Will keep Ryan for this week at least.
