There are many ways to play fantasy premier league but here are a few thoughts on how I approach it
I almost stopped writing captain articles last season or at least just revert to putting down 1 line – give the armband to Suarez. It was almost like the old days when Ronaldo played in the premier league and you almost forgot where the button for the captain change was on the FPL site. Unfortunately in 2014/15 with no one outstanding individual player who can be relied on week after week then again we will have to think about the captain situation each week. However that doesn’t just affect your ongoing decisions you need to think about it for your GW1 squad.
If you read my team of the season 2 players in particular you would not have expected to be there at the beginning of the season were YYT and Ramsey. However on FPL points per minute they were miles ahead of any other midfielders, yet position and history wise they had no right to be there. So is now precdent turned up side down and how should we deal with it next season. One way would be to purchase players with an ownership threshold above a certain point to avoid massive hits to your ranking everytime they scored

Its a little wordy and quite detailed but hopefully you will get some ideas or your thoughts challenged over it. I’ve re-issued it word for word so apologies if some is redundant by the passage of time
