    wish I didn't score 97 pts. Would have been nice to do a transfer.

      patience is a lesson harshly learnt! i took about 100 points in transfer hits last year. I'm going to be alot more conservative this year. 97 allows you an average game week and 2 transfers to ponder.

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 3 Years

        I averaged 1 hit pr. gameweek last 2 seasons.
        I know hits ain't exactly perfect, but if you make some nice transfers those points will come back fast alongside an improved TV.

      Yeah gotta admit it is nice to do a transfer

      So because you don't own a player like Bilva or Trossard, and because pretty much all your players delivered, then you can't make a transfer?

      What a pile of **** ! 😀

      You'll be in the same boat as thousands & thousands of casuals with nearly 100 points leaving their team thinking they got it right from the get go.

      I'll eat you all up from behind making those transfers 😉

      I'm in the same boat BUT I could do Pope to Adrian. Planning on captaining Auba, and having the opposition goalkeeper in my team feels a bit self defeating.

        I have .5 itb so Button to Adrian gives me two 4.5 keepers, Pope the other.

          Annoying thing is that Pope's fixtures after that look fine, so really I am only transferring in a new keeper for one match, and will have to do another to get rid when Alisson is back and fit. Think I'll save.

      Great score buddy. Well deserved, kudos to you for going with Kane,Sterling and Salah. Kane over Auba was a tough call to get right.

    What to do with the below team? Completely messed up my score by changing Sterling/Coleman/Guilbert to Bilva/Digne/Robertson just before deadline, only got 66 points! Not sure Bilva will play again.. I know it seems early but considering the WC..!

    Ryan
    TAA - Robertson - Digne
    Bilva - Salah - Perez - Moura
    Auba (c) - King - Benteke

    Button - Lundstram - Dendonker - Rico

      Yes or No?

        As an investment in the top ppm man last season, and getting better, it's arguably the best you'll make this season.

      5. FLAT-TRACK BULLY
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 months, 11 days ago

        I did the exact same thing. Hoped KDB could cover Sterling, but he seemed quite deep again at times and Sterling well forward. And Moura was always a 1 week punt to see what was the best 7.5 or 8m around him (kept 0.5 itb).

        As it turns out, McGinn is still the same player in the prem, Villa attack, and also have great fixtures (BMouth at home this week).

        I think you just have to consider the likelihood of that -4 paying you back over the next few weeks. I'd say it will and very possibly even this week.

        1. Shuko
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 11 days ago

          KDB - Ster is a perfect example showing how there is no such thing as "cover". But, it's just one of the silly things that keeps on going around here.

      It seems that people have different goals while playing fpl. My goal is to try to maximize the expected number of points. However, it seems some people rather have the goal of doing well relative to (certain) others, for instance winning their leagues and so on. Some people try to get to the very top by playing higher variance strategies. This will have consequences for your choices and advice:

      If I think Aubameyang will outscore Kane, I will pick him, even if Kane has 50% ownership and Aubameyang has 10%. If you play relative to others, you might pick Kane, to play on lower variance relative to others. If you play high variance strategies, you generally will own and captain slightly unusual people. Probably you will do worse than the safe "maximize number of points"-strategy, but some gameweeks (and seasons) the high variance pays off, and you will do much better. (Altough, the seasons you don't, which is most, then your bad results is not unlucky, but a result of a chosen risk).

      What is your goal? If you haven't thought about this, then maybe you should. Also, what your goal is influences the kind of advice you give, and the person wanting advice does not necessarily have the same goal as you.

        My goal is to score more than others.
        Can be achieved with various strategies

        My goal is to have ten outfielders who can all score goals and get assists and a cheap keeper who can get 150, then see where it gets me. It's easy to be empathetic, don't impose your own views too much, listen.

        • 6 Years
        6 months, 11 days ago

        I just want to make profit in the money league I'm in. So pretty much maximize the number of points but I do like to take some conscious risks and punts here and there. Makes the game a bit more fun 😀

      5. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 11 days ago

        You shouldn't care about high or low variance, only average expected points. Always pick the one you think have highest expexted average, regardless of ownership

        1. Turambar
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 11 days ago

          I agree. Or at least, I also play the game that way. But from reading the comments here, it seems like a lot of people play it differently. And it might make sense: If your goal is to beat your friends in your league, and you are leading, then having a similar team to them might secure your league win (but will probably lose you overall points).

        2. TheDragon
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 11 days ago

          This is an interesting view. Here is a good question for people to consider about their style of play:

          Which would you rather in your team:

          Player A: scores 100 points 10% of the time and 0 points 90% of the time - expected points = 10 per week

          Player B; scores 9 points guaranteed every week.

          Would you choose player A or B. A has higher expected points but much bigger variance

          1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 11 days ago

            B

            Read costa vs kane 2 years back.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              6 months, 11 days ago

              Anyone who answers B doesnt understand games of variance

          3. Turambar
            • 2 Years
            6 months, 11 days ago

            In isolation I would choose A. However, due to team value purposes, it might be that in practice A goes down in value a lot more than B, so for price reasons maybe B.

            If you downgrade the example to a more realistic example like:

            A: 50% 14 pts 50% 0 pts - excpected 7
            B: 100% 6 pts

            I would def choose A.

            1. TheDragon
              • 1 Year
              6 months, 11 days ago

              Nice post - agree in your example most would pick A but II reckon in my ‘more extreme’ example most would pick B.

              Theoretically I think you should pick the same answer to both - if not, where is the cross over point in terms of ‘too much variance’ either in reality or psychologically

              1. Turambar
                • 2 Years
                6 months, 11 days ago

                A related concept:

                You could imagine two competing strategies for playing fpl.

                A: 50% chance of ending with 2400 pts, 50% 2200 pts - expected 2300
                B: 100% chance 2280 pts

                I would choose A, even if the probability of getting a lower position than B is pretty high. It could even be true that B has the highest expected OR, even if A has higher expected points.

              If you had that kind of foresight you'd of course go for A. What about the emotion over logic factor? when that player A has blanked 2-3 times whilst waiting on the inevitable 50% upturn..how many managers have panicked and jumped ship? You essentially need the balance of set and forget and risk taking jumping on the high gain variance. personally i'm going more conservative/patient as i tend to be a compulsive manager making subs saturday evening.

        i think my overall goal is to win a mug and a rucksack so maybe i should go with A players till it happens!

        To simplify in my mind...you need to average around 65 points a week to win the whole thing. if i can get 7 players that can get me a baseline 30 points then find the rest chasing big points from agressive transfers and captaincy. Thats how i want to try and play it. i'm not crazy enough to think i'll win it though. i reslly like your question and its hurt my monkey brain..

      @Mods - I'm sure there are a few players new to the Premier League who are missing from this site from a data point of view. Neal Maupay is the one I've noticed as he's an enticing prospect at £6.0m.

      What is the ETA for filling out the Members section database with the full list of players?

        Not sure, but I know it's being looked into by tech. It's not as simple as you'd think - they are in members area, just they're not appearing...

      I just want to make profit in the money league I'm in. So pretty much maximize the number of points but I do like to take some conscious risks and punts here and there. Makes the game a bit more fun.

      Draft league thoughts would be appreciated:

      A) Drop Pedro, pick up Mahrez
      B) Leave and keep Pedro

      Despite the CHE result, Pedro is playing more minutes. Whereas Mahrez is a rotation risk, but seems to have a higher ceiling.

        pedro will only be nailed till CHO and Willian are back. so yeah, get mahrez, 1st change winger for city who will get minutes every game

      2. SADIO SANÉ

        6 months, 11 days ago

        quite possible, dare I say likely, that neither of them play every week - Mahrez could be pretty good if Bernardo/KDB gets injured longer term - I'd punt on him and stick him on the bench I think

        1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 11 days ago

          he will get minutes every game imo, 1st player off the bench for sterling or Bilva and can also see him get starts when they are rested.

          1. SADIO SANÉ
            • 4 Years

            yeah fair, not sure I'd want to start someone who prob won't start but could work

              Same, only exception is a city attacker coming on at 70 every game after they have exhausted the other team

      Play Lundstram (CRY) and bench KWP (mci)?

      -> Rough estimated points something like 3-4p for Lund and 2p for KWP. This based on the massive amount of data points we have for this season. Would not surprised if Lundstram got an assist or even CS against settling CRY.

      1. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…
        • 4 Years

        Yes . Logical move.

      2. Murder On Zidanesfloor
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 11 days ago

        yes

      3. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 11 days ago

        Lundstram might just come on for a 1-pointer but yeah, I'd play him over KWP

        Lundstram is an odd one. Before the season the majority of Sheff Utd fans said he won't start GW1, now they're saying he'll be dropped GW2 despite being one of their better performers. Despite this I'd start him over KWP.

            My one post has come a long way 😆

          • Coolbean
              6 months, 11 days ago

              Regarding your point, nothing has changed between GW 1 and 2. No one wanted him to start GW 1, but it was evident from preseason that he was intended to be used as the defensive option, and Bournemouth away is a prime example for the use of this setup. In GW 2, they’re at home to Palace, one of the easiest games you’ll have on the calendar. I’ll be surprised if they go defensive again, especially when they have a much better player in Freeman on the bench.

              Regarding him playing well, he did okay/better than expected and created two big chances, which is very cool for FPL, but he did close to nothing apart from them. To put into context, they looked far more threatening and almost immediately scored their goal once Lundstram was subbed out for Freeman.

                Thanks for the info. I'm not quite sure Palace is one of the easiest games you'll have tho, they scored 32 goals away from home last season, more than Bournemouth scored at home, but let's wait and see.

            I think Luke Freeman gets the nod this week over Lund.

          Quick Question for a friend

          If u made 2 transfers and then decided to use the free hit , u get the -4 , right ?

          1. SADIO SANÉ
            • 4 Years

            Trossard! Buendía probably, maybe Iwobi soon

            1. TheDragon
              • 1 Year
              6 months, 11 days ago

              Potentially Dendoncker

              Robinson is a wait and see - Cellabos at 5.5 might be interesting if he gets a regular spot at arsenal

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

                agree, Robinson should have scored and he would be quite popular now if he had

                  • 1 Year
                  6 months, 11 days ago

                  I wish he had scored - did Robinson over Zinchenko as my final decision for a number of reasons

                  Hopefully it works out

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

                    ah that's not ideal, but could work out, hopefully Cancelo shakes things up

            Very difficult question rn. Wait another week

            If urgent, McGinn at 5.5

            Its not clear atm.

            Buendia or Mcginn are decent shouts.

            • 4 Years
            6 months, 11 days ago

            Trossard is hampered by Gross so probably McGinn for now and save the half. Maybe Iwobi is worth assessing but Bernard is blocking him too.

            Between Robinson and McGinn.. I watched the whole Sheff Utd game and thought Robinson looked great! Really should have scored at least one.

            Is it a waste of a transfer to do Kane to Auba this week? then swap back the week after.

              It's a bit risky if you have nothing ITB as any price changes scupper this move.

              I don't like these 1-week swaps because FTs are very valuable. Although this seems to be an optimal week to do so if you really like these moves I think this is the week to do it.

            Hi mates. Thinking of doing Moura to Martial.

            Team would be:

            Ryan
            TAA, Robertson, Digne, Chenko
            Perez, Salah, Sterling, Martial
            King, Wilson

                Probably sees Fabinho as 4th choice CB, or might promote Ki-Jana Hoever / Sepp van Den Berg.

                    30, injury prone, error prone and contract expires in 2021 - I'll take the 15m Roma are offering and run.

                    I do agree that Matip / Gomez aren't reliable from an injury point of view, but I'd like to see KJH or SVDB be introduced into the first team.

                      TAA too, I don't like the move at all really but we'll see - and maybe Hoever is decent enough who knows

              Love this quote from Klopp on Lovren...

              “I don’t exactly know about Dejan’s start at Liverpool but he made a few mistakes. People always have that in mind: ‘Oh, Lovren again!’, but I’m long in the business. I said to Dejan: ‘If somebody told me, come on, you have the chance, create a centre-half. We found a way to do it, genetically, bam, bam, bam.’ That’s him, strong, quick, both feet, can head like crazy, jumps through the roof. He’s all you need. Yes, a few things you can improve – his concentration. But these are human beings.”

                Klopp is very good at being honest yet positive in a motivational way. Lovren's liked in the dressing room, you can tell that from the vlogs, videos etc. but it's on the pitch what matters most 🙂

                  Agree completely. He clearly cares about his players and gives them every chance to succeed, but the last line about his concentration levels is kind of key.

              I think he'll tick over, just have concerns about Newcastle in general and I'm not convinced they'll score enough goals under Bruce.

            Does anyone know how I can reliably track down the teams of hall of fame players?

            I'd like to take a look at Marc Rubinstein's team as he made some eally interesting points in his 'Meet the Manager' interview, and I want to see how they translated into his GW1 picks (albeit indirectly, given that interview was during last season)

            The links in the hall of fame seem to be from last year

            Norwood to McGinn this week?

            I know, don't laugh - I kept 0.5 back for this transfer thinking McGinn wouldn't get a look in at Spurs! Oops...

              I'm doing A, could easily make a case for any of them

                • 4 Years
                6 months, 11 days ago

                A feels right, but could be one where after the gameweek you just think 'Burnley aren't that bad, that was a terrible idea' when he blanks

                1. TheDragon
                  • 1 Year
                  6 months, 11 days ago

                  Burnley really aren’t that bad!

                  If you have Auba then you do sort of ‘have to’ captain him this week - but I’d still be tempted to go Salah

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

                  It's just a game. No fun in playing it safe. Keeps you excited/nervous when other captain plays.

            Watched the shef-bou highlights and Lundstram seemed really good for a £4.0 defender, made 3 passes which could have led to goals. Of course the full match might suggest otherwise and that he was actually poor but from what I saw I would be surprised if he were to get dropped, also wouldn't be surprised if he's got an assist or two in him soon

                If I owned him I would be quite encouraged from what I saw, should get attacking returns in his next two home games
                There are 5 players though vying for two spots though which is what really puts me off.
                He's kind of a happy if I owned him, but wouldn't want to bring him in type player
