This is part 4 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.

Goalkeeper

I‘ve downgraded from Ederson. I’m currently on Heaton but it’s a toss up between Heaton and Pope. I think both represent good value now that they’re looking like the undisputed first choice (rather than competing against each other!). The money saved let’s me upgrade elsewhere.

Defence

I’ve kept VVD, Robertson and Laporte. I’ve removed the £4.5 option and brought in Zinchenko and Digne and gone five at the back. I’m going really BIG at the back. I just think there’s so much value there.

Midfield

Salah and Sterling stay as the two clear captain options and the best two fantasy players in the league. I’ve brought in Fraser and Siggy for Zaha and Richarlison as they’re sill such good value for their price.

Forwards

King stays and has been in every single one of my drafts. I’ve removed DCL as his place isn’t secure anymore. I’ll probably end up going 442 eventually but none of the £6.5m options, past King, stand out at the minute. I don’t like having two £4.5m strikers on my bench but it’s seems the best strategy short term.

I’ve only got 6 players still in the team from my first draft and this could change even more as I may still change depending on the press conferences.

Good luck everyone!

Kev From Canada

Kev finished in 6k last season and 195k in 18/19

Here is my lineup. It could all change if Pep says Ederson will start in a presser..

Defence:

2 Liverpool and 1 City coverage. One more attacker with good fixtures in Holebas. Dunk can fill in if a player has a ‘no show’ or a tough fixture. Rico seems most likely 4m to play.

Midfield:

-Salah sterling. There is no special formula here.
-Siggy I ultimately wanted over Bilva because of pens.
-Dilva looks good in preseason and cheaper than Bilva. Hes the captain so I think he will get minutes.
-Barkley is a risk but even if he doesn’t start he will play. Dunk is there in just in case he doesn’t. Hes 6m not 7.5m too.
-I had Perez but the new attacking mid that signed makes things murky and their fixtures aren’t great so I will wait.
-I have Wilson and don’t want two Bou so Fraser is out.

Forwards

-Wilson is locked for me every draft since I did his pp90 stats.
-Ings on pens and Austin gone. His his first four matches aren’t actually so bad. This was Murray but they signed a younger puppy so I just took him to the vet to get it over with. Had a bad Ings experience because of injury? I guess you wont ever own KDB or Wilson or Kane then either…just get over it.
-Greenwood. Meh. Lukaku is gone. He might play 10 min a game and hopefully impress. He will more likely drop to 4.4m unfortunately. I expect Rashford and Martial to shine here tbh. They are on as big a watch to me as Chelsea players and will like be swapped in for Wilson, Dilva, Siggy soonish. I’m wildcarding in GW4 so whatever.

Captain: GW1 Salah, GW2 Sterl, GW3 Salah…you get the point.

Jordan Sadler

Here’s my team.  Good luck everyone.

Stephen Troop

Stephen’s last 3 seasons overall rank were 43k, 52k and 64k

Follow Stephen on twitter here

Not much has changed in any of my drafts really. Coleman and Walker have been switched to Digne and Zinchenko. I’ve looked at ways to get Wilson instead of King and can’t find a way I’m happy with.

Alex Skinner

Alex finished the last 3 seasons in 1k, 302k and an incredible 824 overall

So here is my team.

With Salah at home to Norwich he will no doubt be a very popular pick captain pick.

Gone for a strong defence with players who have the potential of points at both ends. Kwp is a rotation risk and a transfer waiting to happen but I feel he will play at home against villa and for the next few gameweeks. There are plenty of other options to replace him with and will worry about this at a later stage.

Everton have great fixtures and so Sigi is a must for me for his attacking threat.

Perez i hope continues to play alongside Vardy in a forward position

Salah and sterling speak for themselves.

I’ve gone with forwards with decent starting fixtures for the beginning part of the season and with woods being on fire preseason looks good as any to have at his price point.

Bench is light but have the potential to offer cover if needed.

Good luck all!

    • I was at the final Spurs pre-season game against Inter and, except for his goal, Moura was very poor. I personally prefer Lamela at 6m. He’s looked dangerous throughout pre-season.

  1. I’m surprised by the lack of contributors who have Kane in their teams. I’m of course aware of the August curse, but surely his price drop this season combined with decent pre-season form and rest would warrant a place in the attack?

    My team is currently as follows:

    Heaton/Button

    Digne/Robertson/VVD/Zinchenko/Kelly

    Salah/Sterling/Perez/Dendoncker/Hayden

    Kane/King/Greenwood 0.5ITB

    • I think there are a whole bunch of reasons why the contributors (inc myself) haven’t gone for Kane as much but the August curse isn’t one of them.

      Been plenty of chat on the slack channel on this (and other Spurs assets) and certainly not been an easy decision to omit him but I’ve not liked any draft with him + Salah and Sterling in. With Salah/Sterling I won’t be captaining him in the first few weeks anyway so tried to have a more balanced team and will see whether he is still playing deeper and how spurs in general do over the first few.

  2. Need some help guys. Which is the best option

    A) Digne + KWP + Fraser
    B) Coleman + Zinchenko + Fraser
    C) Digne + Zinchenko + Perez

  3. Moura is a decent option but only for the first GW. Then they play City, and with Alli/Son out, not sure if Spurs can start well. Basically you might need to transfer him quite early on. I’ve got Kane in my team but keep thinking whether to switch him to Wilson and get DeBruyne.

    I’m thinking along the lines of a decent reliable starting 11 that I won’t need to tinker for a month, but have players that are easily transferable to other targets once we can figure out gametime/effectiveness. I find there’s lots of value in the 6-7.5m midfield..

    • Thanks. I was on C for this entire week, but am leaning towards A, as I am not sure about Zinchenko. Downside being that i wont have Man C cover at all in defense.
      My team – (assuming A)
      Ryan/Button
      Robertson/VVD/Digne/KWP/Rico
      Salah/Sterling/Lucas Moura/Fraser/Dendoncker
      Wilson/Deulefeu/Wickam

  4. I think the reason is due to value in the mid price range. I have Wilson and Siggy who cost 16mil in total. Kane and Hayden who you have cost 15.5mil. I’d expect my 2 players to out score yours. I appreciate 0.5 mil difference here but you get my point…..although I do fear Kane could smash it this season!

  5. No love forB Silva? I’m putting him in. I know he doesn’t take set pieces but Sane is out so he’s nailed on, for 8 million
