The importance of showing patience as an FPL manager

Oh, Fantasy Football, what do you do to us?

There are some weeks when you just have to laugh. I’ve escaped a tricky Gameweek 23 with a decent-ish score (£48m) and a green arrow but others haven’t been so lucky.

I have my own tales of woe, but that’s nothing compared to some of the stories that I’ve seen banded around the community over the last few days.

Having done the Scoutcast for a couple of years now, and being in charge of grabbing the “Roughs with the Smooths”, I’ve seen my fair share of “Roughs”.

But this Gameweek has made me wince.

The people that have traded their faltering Wolves players for soaring Saints, such as Raul Jiménez (£7.5m) for Danny Ings (£6.9m) you have my sympathy.

For anyone that (like me) that left Adama Traore (£5.7m) on the bench, I feel for you.

For anyone that, probably against their better judgement, removed long-standing goalkeepers, such as Paulo Gazziniga (£4.6m) or Nick Pope (£4.6m), and replaced with Double Gameweek ‘star’ Lukasz Fabianski (£4.9m) or budget ‘hero’ Alex McCarthy (£4.4m), you have my condolences.

For anyone that took punts on Richarlison (£8.1m), Ryiad Mahrez (£8.5m) or Djibril Sidibé (£5.4m)… you did not deserve the fate that the cruel, cruel FPL gods had in store for you.

This game can be a nightmare. We talked last year about the impact it can have on mental health, as more and more people’s enjoyment of a weekend is intrinsically linked to their FPL score. But know that you are not alone. Everyone has bad weeks. Everyone suffers when seemingly good decisions go against them. Everyone has weeks that make them want to close FPL forever and get a new hobby. But don’t. Go outside. Take a breath. Consider why you removed Jiménez for Ings (Jiménez’s fixtures do turn really bad! Ings had scored 80 points in the last 12 Gameweeks!).

To me, “Black Box Thinking” has never been about beating yourself up over making these kind of decisions, the ones where hindsight tells us it was a mistake, but general strategy tells us it was the best move.

I’m not that annoyed I benched Traore, or that I sold Pope, because I really did think it was the right thing to do with the tools at my disposal.

However, what I’m learning more and more this season, is that when it comes to 50/50 calls, when you just don’t feel that certain, the best move may be to show patience.

My last 12 Gameweeks have been the best I can remember, with just one red arrow in this period. I was trigger happy in the first 11 weeks, and when faced with a decision (to transfer, or not to transfer) I would do it.

But actually, the players we have in our teams are those that we have backed for whatever reason, and unless there is really clear evidence that they are now no longer the player we originally signed – perhaps ditching them isn’t the best move.

I’ve shown more faith in players that I’ve selected, allowed them to have a few weeks to perform, and been rewarded. 50/50 decisions for me lately have tended to go in my favour, as I have elected to do nothing, rather than make wholesale changes (often involving hits that do not pay off).

The main reason I’m not going for Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) – see my last article for the ins and out of this – is because it would tear my team apart, particularly my midfield which currently consists of Jack Grealish (£6.5m), Sadio Mané (£12.4m), Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m), Anthony Martial (£7.9m) and/or Traore.

These players have been fundamental to my rise up the rankings, and the thought of binning these players off to chase a haul from one player fills me with dread.

The fact that I’m not that confident that Salah really will outscore these midfielders by such a considerable margin tells me that I shouldn’t be following the crowd.

Instead, it looks like I will be turning my attentions to a certain Robert Firmino (£9.4m) – who had a goal very cruelly ruled out against Manchester United on Sunday.

I said I wanted to see something to tempt me towards the Brazilian, and he’s been good the last few weeks, with a goal against Spurs and an unfortunate VAR call last week.

Firmino’s away form has been quite appealing as well heading into two matches outside of Anfield. In the last four away matches, for example, he has four goals compared to Salah’s one and Mane’s two – and 16 goal attempts compared to 14 for both the Liverpool midfielders.

For more detailed information on Firmino, read THIS MEMBERS ARTICLE.

Looking further ahead, I’m wondering what other players may come into our considerations. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.7m) is going to be back in a few weeks, after the dust has settled from the Double Gameweek. The golden boot chaser could easily be a major factor for those chasing the pack.

Similarly, a certain Sergio Aguero (£11.9m) has now hit consecutive double-digit hauls but remains a player who is being overlooked in favour of Liverpool’s star assets right now.

More budget-friendly options, such as Leandro Trossard (£5.8m), Lucas Digne (£5.7m) and Ismaïla Sarr (£5.6m) (injury depending) are also looking like options that can help you soar up the table. The key, it seems, is picking them for the right reasons, and sticking with them through uncertain times.

FPL can be the ultimate test of patience. But what I am increasingly learning is the importance of honing your ability to filter out poor Gameweeks, assess what happened and react – or crucially, not react – accordingly.

    What do price falls depend on? Because Abraham went up on Fri night and now he's dropping tonight probably. But I remember months ago when KDB got injured, tons sold him and his price didn't fall..

        When a player is flagged it takes more transfers for a drop. FPL towers love manipulating the system

        Abraham really is a mystery as regards price goes.

            Well he was sold on mass the last time he was injured, but only dropped 0.2m, after climbing £1m.
            And as soon as he returned to fitness he instantly rose by 0.1m.

            Something didn’t make sense.

        Feels random

        CHO fell to 5.3 despite having a significantly higher ownership than he had at 6,0 in week 1

        Mount may be a guide to Abraham. He’s dropped like a stone since the train moved on

      Are the postponed games for the EFL cup final likely to be rearranged for later in the same game week? If not I'd struggle to put out 11 with my current squad.

      Anyone taking a punt on Haller?

      Only Abraham (15), Firmino (16), Ings and Calvert-Lewin (both 17) have taken more shots in the box than the Frenchman over the last five gameweeks.

      Leicester's defence is looking pretty ropey at the minute, and anything he gets against Liverpool would be a bonus.

      Hasenhüttl's comments indicate that he will rotate for the trip to Palace, so we could be looking at a benching for Ings followed by a trip to Anfield. Haller has Brighton (H) after the DGW as well.

      I'm certainly tempted.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 hours ago

        I've taken the punt on Haller.
        Also thinking about Taa T©.
        Might go with safe Mane T© though

        1. MoManeTaa

          So you are back to TC this week 🙂

          I'm currently playing Greenwood ahead of Ings given Hasenhüttl's comments and will probably do that for Wolves as well in GW 25. But I have the 0.2 needed for the Ings to Haller switch so my fingers are twitchy

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 16 hours ago

            I personally think Ings will start

            1. theodosios
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 16 hours ago

              Why not...he is 27yrs old, next game is in 10 days, I don't see why he wouldn't start

              1. zøphar

                • 10 Years
                1 month, 36 mins ago

                the issue isnt really with next game in 10 days, the issue is the lack of sufficient recovery period between the games on Saturday and Tuesday.

      2. GARY AND JAMIE
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 hours ago

        Dont see why Ings doesnt start in a much winnable game. Better off benching v Pool

        1. Differential (c)
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 16 hours ago

          The next game after Palace is Spurs in the cup, and g***amn I wanna qualify for the next round. I'd rest Ings, for sure.

        I have just done an article on Deeney (6.2m) who is stepping in for me this week. Not sure when it will be uploaded but I expect him to do very well against Aston Villa tomorrow evening. He tops the penalty box touches with 33 over the last 4 GWs. Haller just doesn't do it for me. I appreciate he's playing twice but at 7m he's still too expensive.

        We could also see Cenk Tosun (5.7m) come back onto our radars as Palace's next 7 look fantastic on paper. Not for me just yet but he got 80 mins under his belt on his debut picking up a goal and a bonus.

        1. AK ⭐
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 14 hours ago

          Penatly Box Touches is not a stat you should be looking into, Pep Pig. It has a very weak correlation to output. Although, Deeney doesn't look like a bad shout with the form Watford are in.

            I note the penalty box touches with a collaboration of other attacking stats AK. I appreciate on its own it means little to not a lot to some. I find it's uses mate

          yup Deeney is an excellent shout, Watford's underlying numbers are great

        I'm not trying to talk you out of it, but their fixtures leading right up to GW32 are horrendous

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 14 hours ago

        Agreed. Interesting pick for the next two gws. Had decent stats last match. Floor of 4 points this gw, but with potentially a quite higher ceiling. Is a physical presence and has good finishing skilles, up against a Leicester defense that got bullied by Wood and a Burnley team in woeful form.

        I’m looking at shipping out Tammy for either him or dcl. Just for a short term punt. Either will only keep their place until gw26, when I’ll get Ings in.

          I do think Moyes preference for lumping crosses into the box is tailor made for someone like Haller. Shame he isnt creating much, he was known for his link-up play in the Bundesliga but they probably need to play two up top for him to do that

      9. Black Belt Jones
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 14 hours ago

        Yep, brought him in for the injured Rashford. There were no other major issues in my squad, so it's a fairly easy punt for me and I'll be happy with one goal or assist over the DGW.

        I have enough left in the bank to do Haller to Aubameyang when he returns the week after, assuming no one else in my team gets injured or banned!

        I've taken ings out for Haller can do a straight swap back if needs be I feel it's worth the punt.

            I wouldn't be too keen on the hit but for free it looks a solid option

      11. Rishi Sehgal
          1 month, 1 hour ago

          I am too. Haller's on the Goals Imminent table. Need more info on Ings tho. There's a cup game against Spurs at the weekend which logically should be the game where ings gets rested.

          ...just seen this now mate, I did indeed do Ings to Haller just after his price rise... but was 0.1 short so also did Dunk to Cresswell, in for a penny in for a pound 😉

        • FredtheRed
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 21 hours ago

          Easy decision for me with Rashford being injured and Vardy blanking against Burnley (also have Ings). I wanted Aguero as he looks unplayable so did Vardy> Aguero and Rash>Haller.

          I love DGW and why not take a punt? I can always downgrade to DCL or Greenwood if he isn't up to it.

                Nothing beats anticipating a DGW in fantasy football. This is why we play the game

                      As long as one of my Liverpool players assists the one I’ve put the TC on I’d be happy with that. Goal, clean sheet, and three BPS plus another game to go.

                        They have scored 4 goals vs them 2-3 times recently, wont be surprised if that happens again. Good luck with TC 😀

                          Thanks mate. You saving it for later?

                            80:20 saving for other double

                            Was pretty confident of saving but only 2 possible DGWs plus FH/BB and a WC to play, there is a slim chance I may activate.

                              Exactly that, I’m assuming I’ll want to WC and BB in the other two (likely) doubles.
                              Plus Liverpool are rampant anyway, people say the fixtures aren’t great, but Leicester away wasn’t the best and they smashed them 4-0.
                              My other concern is later in the season, with nothing to play for in the league, we could see major rotation...especially for teams still in Europe.

                                  I convinced someone on twitter to change to Salah from Vardy last weekend, so I’ve got good form.

                    Grealish, Villa are signing a new striker too so that should help with his assist potential

                  Does anyone else feel like they don't truly make their own decisions on transfers?

                  For example, in my gut I knew it was time to get Vardy out when he got injured but kept him. Then I thought van Dijk would be a great option but I went with Gomez to save cash...

                        I'd let Solskjaer and Hassenhoff decide

                      Is there anyway of seeing what percentage own both Salah and Mane currently?
