The Complete Guide to Our FPL Gameweek 1 Tips and Advice

The final window on the FPL advent calendar has been opened, the big day is finally here! Whether you are a fantasy veteran or a first-season newbie, welcome to one of the most exciting days of the year – the first day of the new Fantasy Premier League season!

At the moment over five million FPL managers are busy tinkering with their teams, making final tweaks based on the new arrivals in yesterday’s transfer window and the latest team news emerging today. It can, at times feel overwhelming.

To help ease the pressure a little, David, Neale (aka Skonto Rigga), and the Fantasy Football Scout team, together with our wonderful community of passionate FPL managers, have been busy collating all the useful nuggets of FPL gold.  

Firstly, don’t get caught out – the FPL deadline for Gameweek 1 is 7pm UK time. With more teams starting the season than ever before, be aware that the computer servers at FPL towers will undoubtedly be under increased pressure. It is advisable to select your final squad in plenty of time, just in case the servers slow down. 

One of the big decisions FPL managers have to make every week is who to trust with the captain’s armband. A decision which editor-in-chief David Munday, described as quite easy on the first captaincy video of the season. The stand-out pick in the opinion of both David and Joe is Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.

In the video, David went on to highlight the relatively low number of clean sheets Liverpool’s opponents, Norwich, kept in the Championship last season compared to the teams around them, and the number of defensive injuries they are currently suffering. 

Using the new ‘Flat-track Bully’ feature in our Members’ area, David then backed up his selection of Salah by revealing that, last season, the Egyptian scored an impressive 20 goals and managed 7 assists against teams outside the Premier League top six. In the 2017/18 season the totals were 22 goals and 6 assists. In other words, Mohamed Salah is a safe bet which, more often than not, is exactly what we want with our captain.

However, if you would like to consider another option – perhaps you are like former FPL winner Ben Crabtree, an Everton fan who won FPL without selecting a Liverpool player for the entire season – the Captain Sensible article highlights some enticing alternatives.

One of the challenges of playing FPL is deciding which premium-priced players to own given our limited budget of £100m. The dilemma was articulated by James (aka HamezMace) in the must-read FPL Question Time:

“Can you fit Kane, Sterling, and Salah into the same team?”

Sam from FPL Family admitted:

“It’s impossible to fit all the premium assets into your fantasy team – I’ve tried!”

The answer according to Ted (aka Rotation’s Alter Ego) and Tom from Who Got The Assist? is to go with captain favourite Salah and Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling. Tom explained:

“My judgement is that the City and Liverpool midfielders are two who will end up being the highest-scoring players that I ideally will own all season, with the all-important captaincy armband passing between them.”

In the article featuring a panel of FPL experts, the FPL General revealed that he will be going with as many as three or four £6.0m+ defensive picks. While Tom (aka avfc82) pointed out the potential value in a certain Leicester City asset:

“It’s hard to look past Ayoze Pérez for me. Reclassified as a midfielder, Pérez scored 12 Premier League goals whilst at Newcastle last season. Now playing in a better team, you’d expect him to profit from Rodgers attacking approach and up that output.”

Of particular interest to FPL managers on the opening day of the season is the latest team news. Neale has collected all the most pertinent quotes from both today’s press conferences and yesterday’s press conferences. Using that knowledge, Neale has updated the incredibly useful Team News section of the website, featuring best-guess lineups and the latest news on a team-by-team basis.

Our Community have also been adding productively to the site with a number of thoughtful contributions. TheFantasyFreÆK, an experienced FPL manager who once finished fourth overall, started a Hot Topic on 10 things you might have missed and need to know before FPL starts.

For managers looking to find the missing piece to their FPL jigsaw puzzle, The Complete Guide to FPL Pre-season groups players according to position and budget making it easier to identify the final player to complete their squads. A wealth of information is contained within.

To highlight only three of a number of excellent community articles: shaun_drift looked at £4.5m Goalkeeper rotations; Limit80 revealed how he used underlying stats to help him to a top 10k finish last season; and Rossi3254 explained why Spurs have the potential to cause a few headaches this season.

Away from the drama of the start of the Premier League, Meltens previewed Gameweek 19 in Fantasy Allsvenskan, while TallestJohn has been helping fantasy managers with their selection in Eliteserien Fantasy, his most recent article previewed Gameweek 16

COMMUNITY TOURNAMENTS

The regular community tournaments return for the 2019/20 season. To join Fantasy Football Scout FPL League enter ooyz44 in your Leagues’ section on the FPL site. The code to join the FFS Members League can be found on the Members page

Last season’s winner of both competitions was the FPL champion himself Adam Levy (aka Elvy). Adam’s winning margin in the open-to-all FFS League was 70 points – world number three Andrew Green was second – and in the Members’ League Adam won by 99 points from world number 18 Tore Bjorheim. 

Adam also won RedLightning’s Opening Day League last season, he finished 158 points ahead of world number 247 Timothy Shelbourne. The league is running again this season, as usual entries to this mini-league were only open for the first 24 hours following the launch of FPL for 2019/20 season in June.

This season also sees the return of the FFS Head-to-Head Leagues. These will be run by Mark Reynolds (aka MIR) with support from Geoff and Chris Atkinson (aka RMT’s Professor). To participate please join the “FFS H2H League” code: gh0126. Entries will then be put into divisions and leagues according to their HOF rankings. Right now, entry will close with the start of Gameweek 1.

TorresMagic’s Last Man Standing competition returns for a seventh season, and this year the winner will receive free Fantasy Football Scout Membership for the 2020/21 season. Simply enter bcvy39 in your Leagues’ section on the FPL site. The Gameweek 22 deadline will be the closing time for entries, over 3,000 managers have entered so far. Note that for those entering after Gameweek 1, you must pass all the previous safety scores to qualify.

Despite finishing 14,224 overall last season, Alan Robertson (aka Villaweeal) triumphed over 4,614 entrants to lift the title. He followed in the footsteps of previous winners: Nice To Finally Michu, Isco Disco, Miro, Hakchak, and Jam0sh.

In the FFS Mods & Cons mini-league, Mark was unable to maintain his lead as Ted Maw (aka Rotation’s Alter Ego) overtook him on the final day. Ted scored 87 points in Gameweek 38 and finished 633 overall. This is Ted’s first top 1k finish in his 11th season, eclipsing his previous best rank of 33,968. Meanwhile, Mark only managed a disappointing final day score of 47 (-8) and dropped out of the top one thousand.

In more drama on the final day, Andy Sullivan regained the lead to win RedLightning’s Top 10k Any Season mini-league by 13 points from Callum Croal and Craig Till Reumert, finishing as world number 44. The league is running again this year, details of how to enter will be available next week.

There was an extremely close finish in RedLightning’s January to May League with Andrew Hughes holding on to win it by a single point from Vimal Krishnan. Andrew had 8 green arrows in the last 10 Gameweeks, rising from 19k in Gameweek 28 to a stupendous 205 overall.

Ted (aka Rotation’s Alter Ego) claimed the title in The Last Ten Gameweeks mini-league to add to his success in the FFS Mods and Cons. He finished 22 points ahead of Gavin Tarrant. Ted’s top 1k finish is all the more impressive given that he was ranked at 46k in Gameweek 27. 

Over the summer, FFS users have been participating in the Swedish Fantasy Allsvenskan. The current leader in the FFS mini-league is Daniel Sebestyen who is currently third in the world.

Daniel has played his ‘Two Captains’ chip and his first Wildcard, but still has the incredibly powerful ‘Park The Bus’ chip left, along with ‘Attack Attack’ and the second Wildcard. He’s 18 points off first place and 14 points behind second place. The overall leader has played all his chips, while the world number two only has his ‘Two Captains’ chip remaining.

Second in the FFS mini-league is Simon Eriksson, 36 points behind Daniel and ninth overall. A further 16 points back in third is Niklas Tysander, who is an impressive 15th overall. It promises to be an exciting finish to season, with nine Gameweeks to go there’s all to play for!

TopMarx - H2H L4 D5 Fan of Fantasy Football and Monty Python. "Archimedes out to Socrates, Socrates back to Archimedes, Archimedes out to Heraclitus, he beats Hegel. Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.”

        Absolutely! Was not looking for sympathy in any way, genuinely just curious when I'm able to check!

        As for whether I have a life or not... I kinda do but it's certainly no excuse, I was sitting in front of the lineup for an hour and a half today as well.

    I love my team. Just couldnt decide Perez v Trossard.

    Went Perez

    1. Evil Genius
      • 2 Years

      So you did decide.

      1. KLOPPTOMANIA
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        I found it difficult to decide. I flicked a coin. So I didn’t really decide.

    2. Belli2007

      You made the right call.

    5. Das Boot
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      not a bad call tbh. I opted for Tielemans in the end, it was a toss up between him and Perez too

  7. Brazilian Gooner
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    The train is gone. Good luck everyone at the new season.

    11 months, 4 days ago

    Salah owners all very smug at the moment, as if picking the most expensive player in the game and captaining him against at team hotly tipped to go back down somehow makes them FPL geniuses.

        Maybe not, but nor are the posts saying your season is over if you didn't TC Salah tonight, before the start of the very first game.

    Don't forget to share the worst team in your MLs!

    One of my mates texted me yesterday saying a lot of the new signings are coming in at 5.5 so he's planning on picking up a few of em like Rodri and Cancelo.

    I said "ballsy strategy, I like it"

    Norwich manager just said they are not going to park the bus and are going to attack...

    2. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Probably going to park the bus then.

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        He sounded convincing...

    3. Taking the Mkhitaryan
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Norwich can't park the bus. They are best when they attack

    4. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      It is one thing saying you are going to attack. But when you don't have the ball and are getting penned into your own half it is pretty hard to attack. I suspect Norwich will be doing a lot of bus parking even if they don't want to.

    5. Carlton_Goal

      No, you need to excite us by telling us who you swapped in at the last minutem

    4. Carlton_Goal
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      I know I haven't seen your team yet but I think you should bring Gomez in

  20. Bubz
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Ended up getting Martial instead of Perez last minute. Have a feeling he’s going to be massive this season and will be up front

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      one of the reasons I went the Moura route in the end, could be a very easy swap

      1. Bubz
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        I have Moura too 😉

        1. SADIO SANÉ

          you sack of wine!

    2. FredrikH

      Good to hear Bubz. I got both in the end.

    3. Demí

      11 months, 4 days ago

      Nice, could be very shrewd. The guy's talent is ridiculous, but ofcourse, that alone isn't enough. Hope for a big season for him

  21. jacklockett
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Never even considered Montoya all pre season... chucked him in my squad last minute, let’s hope it’s a moment of genius, not madness.

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Same even ended with Trossard as my punt.

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Did the exact same..

    3. piquiblanco
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      One of the lads I'm most sure of in my team, after Salah and Perez. Should make you happy over the season

    4. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      I don't get why I saw a few people with Montoya.... nobody got him in the DGW at the end of last year - he offered little going forward - where-as both Dunk and Duffy were bigger threats - so what changed? Apart from Duffy now being 5m.

  22. LangerznMash
    • 3 Years

    The real question here is did anyone NOT triple up on Liverpool!?

    1. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      I've only got 2

      1. LangerznMash
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Are you regretting it? The Norwich lineup is one of the weakest looking I've ever seen in the Premiership.

        1. Solano's Trumpet
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          it only takes a deflection off someones arse, or a VAR from a Wijnaldum lunge and your double liverpool cleansheet that cost 14million is gone

        2. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          No cause my team structure would not allow three, Gomez would of worked but who knew?

        3. Business Cat
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Nah

          Got Salah and VVD, happy with that.

          I think people are over-estimating clean sheet potential here...Norwich are very attacking, the manager said he wouldn't hold back (with no defence, he can't) and Liverpool have been a bit leaky in pre-season.

          I wouldn't be surprised if Norwich score a consolation goal...4-1 🙂

      I only doubled with TAA and Salah

    4. Irish Madridista ⭐
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      o/

      Taa + Salah

    5. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year

      Bobby, Salah & Trent

      1. LangerznMash

        So you did triple up then.

    6. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Only 2

    7. SADIO SANÉ
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      2 here, wanted to add Gomez but like Moura & Wilson too much

    8. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Only VVD and Salah. Adds excitement to hope norwich score xx

  23. pundit of punts
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Went in with this lot.

    Pope
    TAA - Digne - Rico
    Salah - Sterling - Sigurdsson - Fraser - Moura
    Wilson - Wood

    Norris - Lundstram - Greenwood - Hanley

    Good luck for the season. 🙂

    1. GREEN IS GOOD

      Thanks, I really needed to see another team after the last week of RMTs.

  24. Solano's Trumpet
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    My last minute change was VVD, Montoya and Longstaff to Lascelles, KWP and Perez...

    Starting to regret the Montoya to Lasceles part (I already have TAA)

  25. Messiah Hazard
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Took Out TAA for VVD after seeing VVD Touch 50% ownership. Hope TAA doesn’t punish me.

    1. Solano's Trumpet
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      I did this an hour ago and reverted back to TAA ;?

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Me too 50% will hurt more than 24!

    So a late scramble for me. Sat outside with 30 mins to go my laptop gets wet in the rain and the keyboard fails. After an ordeal of getting it in rice and finding my old laptop and charger, I had 15 minutes to finalise my team. Flipped from Salah and Kane as my two £10m+ players to Salah and Sterling multiple times. Having Kane and Salah at 18:57 and back to Salah and Sterling again at 18:59. Frantically confirming changes and setting captains between goes.

    Anyway what do we think, lads?

    Ryan [Button]
    Digne Robbo VVD Walker [Rico]
    Salah Sterling Fraser Barkley [Dendoncker]
    Wilson Jota [Greenwood]

    £0.5m in the bank to do the following after GW2:

    Fraser > Son/KDB
    Wilson > £6-6.5m forward

    Walker > Mendy once fit.

      1. Kellz86
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Honestly not sure why people didn't want the attacking double up? I went Salah/Firmino/TAA

        Even Origi was a fairly good bet for a one week punt at 5.5m to start.

        Hoping for a CS regardless

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year
