Monitor – David Silva

Having failed miserably to defend their title last time out, City’s decision to install Manuel Pellegrini at the helm is a deliberate move away from the more conservative approach favoured by Roberto Mancini. The Chilean’s summer acquisition of forwards Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic, however, while good news for City fans, has led to fears that the up-front rest and rotation policy so favoured by Mancini will once again rear its head.

With a goal and assist over the first couple of Gameweeks, David Silva has thrown his hat in the ring as a real alternative route into an attack that has already racked up six goals – more than any other side in the top-flight. The little Spaniard affords a far greater security of game time, with his creativity crucial to creating chances for Pellegrini’s frontmen and ahead of a home clash with Hull, his Fantasy bandwagon is in overdrive as Eden Hazard and Juan Mata owners look to the City playmaker as a premium midfield alternative.

In this latest article for members, we analyse Silva’s performances so far. Check on his progress compared to last season and assess his credentials at the most sought-after midfielder in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game ahead of the weekend’s fixtures.

      Don't play one, saw one on facebook iirc that had messi and ronny at 14m, they have a similar style to FPL in that 14m is the cutoff value and nobody goes higher.

      Other sites have different methods, different budgets etc so it's harder to compare.

    Wouldn't mind some tips on which team to build for the upcoming weeks.

    A) Rooney team with a decent back line.

    Mig
    Coleman, ZAB, 6.0, Chester, Ward
    Wally, Silva, Lamps, Brady, Kim
    Benteke, Rooney, Soldado

    B) RVP team

    Mig
    Coleman, COLLINS, 6.0, Chester, Ward
    Wally, Silva, 6.5, Kim, JWP
    Benteke, Soldado, RVP

    Couldnt really find the answer:

    Why doesnt defenders drop beneath 4.0, even though they have actually been set to drop for many days according to TotalFPL and FISO? Is there a minimum value or something?

      They will drop. Brayford wasn't due to drop.

      They can drop, what specific defenders? If they have been red flagged and the flag is removed then there is a weekish of price locking.

        Allright, that means Brayford will drop to 3.9 tonight then? Because he is at drop at both TFPL and FISO.

        Was thinking specificly about Brayford, but would think there were more defenders at 4.0 who were at the dropping zone, just saw that there is no defender under 4.0 in the game.

          The FPL specific limits and rules of transfers change each season and it takes time to figure out exactly what might have changed, Both the sites are only a rough guide but they become more accurate the more data they get. FISO especially has come on here and said they are not to be used as a sure thing for now.

          There's no hard FPL limit though so it's probably tonight.
