I expect final-ish FFGeek Contributors teams will be out around Friday afternoon onwards after press conferences.  I’m going to try and leave it as late as possible due to the uncertainties of so many players

Here’s  a few more latest drafts to keep you going

Harry Vernon

Harry’s last 4 seasons overall ranks are 22k, 6k, an incredible 224th and 6k.

Follow Harry on twitter here

See an interview with Harry where he outlines his FPL strategy and you see his first draft team.

Here’s my second draft.

It is always a challenge at the start of the season as we have such limited funds.
There are sooo many options and there’s no way to fit them all in.
So I look at the early fixtures to see which players I can keep in the team for the first 7 or 8 matches.
For me Wolves look promising especially at the back and have a decent chance of clean sheets in GWs 1 and 3-7. They don’t have the Europa League to worry about.
Spurs’ fixtures look great too but they have the Europe league and the League Cup to think about. But they look good up to GW8.

I am looking at playing 442 for the start of the season as I think it is a better way of using our limited funds.


Ideally I like to have 2 cheap rotating goalies and would like to have Ryan/McCarthy but I am presently looking to save 0.5m by having a 4.0m goalie


Trent is Trent
Spurs: Jose is tightening the defence up. Dier looks nailed so he goes into my team.
Wolves In my first draft I had both Doherty and Saiss at the back but with Doherty going to Spurs I am just going to have Saiss for the time being but I will be watching the situation with Vinagre and transfers in.
A pair of 4.5 to complete the defence. If Thomas and Targett are nailed they will be in as Leicester, Villa and Wolves rotate nicely to provide 2 players for the first few GWs.


Salah and Aubameyang will be my captain options. I expect Aubameyang to become Sterling/ De Bruyne in GW3.
I am going to start with Son and see how advanced Jose plays him and see if he plays the Europa League matches.
Greenwood will sit on my bench GW1 and will be in my 2 GW team saving me a transfer.
Finally Harrison Reed or another 4.5 player will complete my midfield.


Jiminez is a set and forget for the first 7.
Mitrovic is cheap and Fulham start with good fixtures. He will probably become Antonio when his fixtures turn.
If Martial or Werner go crazy at the start Mitro will become one of them with Mo being downgraded.
Hopefully Brewster will go on loan. If not I will have to rethink my third striker spot.

That leaves me with 1m in the bank, which is more than I usually keep but gives me additional flexibility.

All the best

  1. Costas, not to go with a Liverpool player seems a really bad idea, but you really should try to get Alexander-Arnold in. I don’t think i have seen a team that hasn’t. Even if it’s to cover yourself. After all he has the highest % by far of any player and could still be considered cheap for the points you get.

  2. perhaps a stupid question. when you list the past 4 years results for contributors. is the most recent result the first or the last one in the list?

  3. Hi Costas! Option 2 looks great but I suppose it would be even better if you downgrade Digne to Davies, Lloris to McCarthy and then upgrade AWB to Liverpool defense( I too am willing to take a punt with Robbo and not TAA considering Robbo has been in better touch and minutes in preseason)
