They Might Be Tired – Gameweek 8

Getting this article out a day later than usual because of a busy week for me outside of the world of FPL. So, let’s get right to the compiled stats of which popular (greater than 5% owned) FPL players had midweek duty and how it affected them. Only last year’s top seven teams were in action this week since it was limited to Champions and Europa League group stage matches – but most teams played their strongest starting lineup minus those players out with injury. Hope this helps managers make some just-in-time adjustments to your squads and good luck in Gameweek 8!

    Think we can expect a little increase in Wolves players ownership with fixture swing after the break.

    They will also be good differential
