This is 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 won’t cover transfers in real time either. It’s just to give an idea of the trends for the week no more. The teams are shown as their “final-ish” teams so they could change. Where they have twitter accounts I have shown this and they may update them there or on our Slack Channel which is part of our subscription Patreon site but this is not guaranteed
Harry Vernon’s last 4 seasons are 22k, 6k an incredible 224th and 6k

As I wrote in my preseason article, my plan was to give Aubameyang the armband for the first two gameweeks then move him on for Sterling/De Bruyne/Salah/Mane.
Having now watched City I really liked the look of De Bruyne and have bought him before the price rise.
My pre season plan was to target players at top half teams not playing in Europe this season who have good fixtures namely Everton, Wolves and Southampton.
Thankfully I only ended up with McCarthy from Southampton. The other two teams have faired better.
I have Rodriguez and Calvert Lewin from Everton as well as Saiss and Coady from Wolves. I will get a third Wolves player in for their fantastic run of fixtures from GW3 to GW7. I am looking at either Jimenez or Podence. With there being so many goals in GW2, it would be good to move away from four at the back to four in midfield and Podence would allow me to do that. He has now got back to back assists in the first two GWs. However, I am a huge fan of Jimenez and he looked very sharp in GW1 and has scored in both matches. I am going to make a decision which one to transfer in later in the week.
My Chelsea boys have not exactly set the word alight. Werner looked busy against Liverpool and should have had another assist for winning a penalty only for Jorginho to miss.
It would great if Chelsea were to change penalty taker in favour of one of my boys.
Havertz was sacrificed at half time after the sending off of Christensen.
Chelsea have WBA next so I will give them at least another gameweek
Many managers are playing an early WC but I am happy enough with my side and the landscape could change considerably further with the transfer window still open.
transfer summary: Aubameyang out De Bruyne in. Another transfer potentially to be confirmed
Here’s the team with the De Bruyne transfer completed
Scott finished with an overall rank of 15k last season, 1k 18/19 and 12k in 17/18
GW2 points: 53 (FPL average 59) Total points 88, Overall Rank: 4,503k, Team Value: £100.0m
Awful start for me! I’m resisting hitting the wildcard button as I want more gameweeks and therefore information before I use it. If GW3 isn’t any better than GWs 1 and 2 though, I’ll likely use it next week.
Transfers summary this week: Ings and Aubameyang out, Calvert-Lewin and De Bruyne in.
Here’s the team with transfers complete
Mikael L Danielsen
Mikael’s last 4 seasons overall rank were 210k, 12k, 100k and 5k
GW2 points: 54 (FPL average 59) Total points 132, Overall Rank: 911k, Team Value: £100.0m
Did an early transfer to avoid price changes.
Had two free transfers and made three moves for a -4 point hit.
Aubameyang, Saint Maximin and Doherty out
De Bruyne, Rodríguez and Lamptey in
Captain on Salah for now, but it could also be Werner or De Bruyne
Transfer summary: Aubameyang, Saint Maximin and Doherty out De Bruyne, Rodríguez and Lamptey in
Here’s the team with transfers made:
Kev in Canada
Kev finished 48k last season 6k in 18/19 and 195k in 17/18
You can follow Kev on twitter here
GW2 points: 30 (FPL average 59) Total points 64, Overall Rank: 5,703k, Team Value: £99.9m
There is no sugar coating it. This start is so bad that I am already past frustration and into a humorous mentality.
I won’t give up but it will be difficult to get anywhere near the top of the ranks with this start.
Son to Fernandes for the double Man United strategy went up in flames with a very poor United showing and Son scoring four goals. At least I didn’t captain Fernandes and ended up with Aubameyang for a 3 point net return. Small win. Very very small win.
I now have 2 total goals, 2 total assists and 1 clean sheet through two game weeks.
My transfer this week is Aubameyang to Salah. At this point I am done being cute and am going to bring in the players I like owning and like to cheer for.
No, I am not Wildcarding. I am going to ride out the bad luck first. There also seems to be a new signing every two days so I don’t want to use it until the transfer window closes.
transfer summary: Aubameyang out Salah in.
