FPL tips GW14 – FFGeek contributors show their GW14 teams part 4
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.

Last week was ‘meh’ again. Wrong capo (Sterling offside by an armpit!) and another drop. I really cant buy luck lately.
So a bit of a crazy week. I’d not been enjoying FPL for a while now and got chatting to Richard Nykvist (well worth a follow if you dont already @VinoylRichie on Twitter) about hits and logical reasons for a big hit. It goes against most conventional thinking to ‘throw away’ a large number of points as you have no guarantee you will get them back. I get that. Im a conservative manager and often stress and fret over my team for a week to roll my transfer and ‘make do’. Not this week. I really wanted a number of players and also wanted rid so decided to take the plunge on a -16. I’ve never done a hit so big before but man, I love looking at my team again and am looking forward to the matches!
So on to the moves; Digne, Tammy, Pukki, Sterling, David Silva to Targett (needed to cover the fixtures of other defenders GW18-22 and to free up funds), Jimenez, Jesus, Son, Pulisic. This also leaves enough in the bank for Tielmans to Maddo/Martial/Willian if I fancy that next week.
The team looks amazing this week (as it should after a -16 haha) but more importantly for me i’m enjoying the game and looking forward to seeing my players play. If you take one message away from this, enjoy yourself and don’t worry about what others say. We play this game for fun and if its not, do what you need to do to make it fun. That may not be a -16 of course, it may be a few weeks away or something else but have fun!
Good luck everyone, see you after the crazy week ahead!
Transfer Summary: Digne, Tammy, Pukki, Sterling, David Silva out to Targett, Jimenez, Jesus, Son, Pulisic.

Rob’s last 3 seasons overall rank were 45k, 40k and 23k
GW13 points: 63 -8 (FPL average 49) Total points 709 Gameweek rank 1,296k, Overall Rank: 713k, red arrow 58k , Team Value: £102.6m
In the end last week I ended up taking an 8 point hit to swap Salah for Mane, Sterling for Maddison and Pukki for Vardy. I also went for De Bruyne captain over Vardy which did not pay off!
I was planning on rolling the transfer over this week but with Saiss suspended and Abraham injured my hand is forced to make at least 1 change. I considered swapping Abraham for Batshuayi but I don’t know how long Abraham is out for and would end up with another non – playing striker; not ideal!
So instead I have taken Longstaff out for Pulisic as Chelsea coverage. I don’t mind Saiss staying on the bench now that Longstaff has gone so I have ended up taking a 4pt hit to swap Abraham for Ings.
I was torn between Ings and Jiminez but with Southampton’s 2 immediate fixtures being Watford and Norwich I had to go for Ings.
I am also keeping an eye on Spurs players now that Mourinho is there…
Transfer summary: Abraham, Longstaff OUT; Ings, Pulisic IN (4pt hit)
