Why I’m changing my transfers approach with time running out on FPL season

In Fantasy Premier League, timing is everything. And that mantra becomes even more important as the season winds to a close.

With just six Gameweeks left of 2019/20, my entire decision-making process starts to change, in regards to teams to target, when to play my chips and which players to spend precious transfers on.

For example, Liverpool winning the Premier League last week has been a much-discussed subject in relation to Fantasy. Will their assets play differently with the long-awaited title in the bag? Well, let’s not forget the title-race was effectively finished long before the lockdown anyway.

For me, there are much bigger issues to discuss when it comes to handling the end of this strange and unprecedented season, not least the ability to make quick and aggressive decisions between now and Gameweek 38+ if you want to make a late charge up the rankings.

The unlimited transfers and Double Gameweek that accompanied the Premier League restart felt like an unexpected bonus chip. Thankfully, I put it to good use, in combination with Bench Boost and the fall-back of a second Wildcard. I managed to score 124 points and cut my rank in half. That’s the sort of thing I want to be doing as often as possible when I still feel like more teams have something to play for.

I couldn’t rest on the laurels of my big Gameweek 30+ green arrows for too long due to the short turnaround, and a new squad staring at me from the transfers page. 

The team as a whole performed well albeit for a Bruno Fernandes (£8.7m) captain fail but that didn’t prevent me from scoring 200+ points, back-to-back.

Had it not been for the FA Cup games over the weekend, I would have almost certainly used my remaining chip, Free Hit, for Gameweek 32+ because, as I said, I like the idea of making quick-fire aggressive decisions to string together consecutive rank rises.

andys-gw33-article 3

However, I couldn’t take the risk this time around, as I felt Free Hitting in Gameweek 32+ would involve loading up on players that had an FA Cup game and then a Premier League outing so soon afterwards. 

As an aside, this sort of thing shows that every remaining Gameweek has a different set of variables to those that come before and after it. 

So, rather than looking at the final games as one block, I plan on viewing them in separate sprints. 

Firstly, the primary focus for me is to strike while the iron is hot. I do want to use my Free Hit chip as soon as possible and I feel that there are favourable fixtures in Gameweek 33+.

→ Which of these 2019/20 matches saw only five shots registered, the fewest recorded in a Premier League game since detailed shot collection began?

Manchester United host a woeful Bournemouth side, Liverpool will welcome relegation-threatened Aston Villa to Anfield while Chelsea and Watford do battle at Stamford Bridge. With those three fixtures, I could form the spine of an excellent Free Hit squad, which I would hope could gain further ground. No doubt, the risk of rotation will be present once again but I feel that will increase further for each remaining Gameweek, especially as more and more teams lose motivation to either qualify for Europe or save themselves from relegation.

Secondly, the Gameweeks leading up to the penultimate Gameweek will rely massively on my wildcard team holding up. I also have two free transfers at hand after not making any changes this weekend. I will reluctantly take hits if I have to but I’m hoping that most of my players are either likely starters or still have something to play for. 

Thirdly, I am treating Gameweek 38+ as a separate entity altogether. By then, a lot of the European and relegation position battles would have been all but settled and I would need to think very carefully on my final moves.

Hasenhuttl to aid Ings' quest for the Golden Boot as Watford's FPL assets flop

I have generally not been a fan of short-term/one-week punt transfers in FPL. The game is, after all, a marathon and not a sprint. So, with each team only having at least half a dozen games left the one thing that I don’t want to do is waste unnecessary transfers. Anyone I buy now will have to be justified as someone I am happy to have in my team until the end of the season. 

I am sure this mindset could cost me a few bandwagon players but I don’t think it’s worth avoiding them in the interest of maximising my remaining transfers. I must be prepared to start all players from subsequent transfers in almost all remaining games and feel confident enough that the outgoing asset won’t do as well.

Assessing these decisions is, admittedly, harder than it was before, not least because it is more difficult to trust fixture schedules these days.

Before the Premier League restarted, the Bundesliga resumption was already in full swing and one of the early patterns that it validated was a loss of significance for home advantage in empty stadiums. 

With the Bundesliga season now completed, it is clear to see that away teams performed far better than they might have expected. 

This has already crept into the Premier League and I expect the trend to continue. It is those sides threatened by relegation who I feel for the most, as their ‘12th man’ edge has been completely eroded. In FPL’s first two Gameweeks, none of the bottom four won a home game. 

It may still be early days with the Premier League’s restart but it goes to show that fixture difficulty ratings need to be reconsidered and the aura of playing at home without fans has been greatly diminished for certain clubs.

        FA cup semi finals at that time. Wouldn't be sure about Pulisic, Greenwood and Nketiah's game time

  6. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL

    Does Greenwood play Bournemouth?

    1. Lav

      Surely

      1. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
        • 5 Years

        Dan James looked terrible again

    2. Planet_Marss
      • 1 Year

      he gets at least 2 more starts before soljk thinks bout playing james

      1. Planet_Marss
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        him being a left footer adds a different dimension on the right wing to united.. allows bissaka to get forward and cut in threat.. no one else in their attack can do that

    3. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Young kid playing well. Deserves his spot I don’t see how he could be dropped.
      Having him and Foden saves a lot of cash but does give some selection headaches. But if they have the fixtures I will play them ahead of a “big name” player til the end of the season.

  7. Lav
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    I know I have a really good rank at 2.8k, and it will be the best finish I ever have had, and may ever get...

    But man is it frustrating to have everything start to fall apart since the restart. In the end doesnt matter your rank, it honestly just sucks to see decisions not go your way. Captained Jimenez this week, and got Martial to pair with Rashford on my WC. Absolute howler...

    1. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Captained Jimi too but dodged the martial hype. He's trolled me every time I got him in this season.

      I think coming on here deterred me from getting him

      1. Lav
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Fair. Ive avoided Arsenal all season and its been a joy. Been in the Rashford trap to much though. First time in Martial trap. Annoying since its now the end.

      Who would you have downgraded for Bruno??

      1. Lav
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Rashford. Just has not worked out for me all season. Gamble on Martial for first time seems to have flopped. Also could shift Son depending on his performances.

    3. fish&chips

      I'm with you mate. I'm also riding high (1.5k) and I think it just adds more pressure to keep going which makes a week like this week painful. Monday, no Ings. Tuesday, no pope, Wednesday, no Fernandes, Thursday, Auba (c) 2 pointer??

      Haha, just have to remember after all is said and done, it's just a game afterall.

      1. Cruyff's Eleven

        I tell my kids that winning every time you play would get very boring, very quickly......

      2. Lav
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Spot on. Pressure is so high. We both have top, top ranks we should be proud of, but we want more. You just get in this cycle of wanting to be even higher and then you get disappointed.

        I was 1k before the lockdown, and since the return I did crack inside 1k, but ultimately just fallen a bit as you see. Weeks been tough for sure, with you on Ings & Fernandes.

        Just have to play as smart as possible and finish strong, especially mentality. We have done great do far and have to appreciate that.

    4. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years

      Remember you made a lot of good decisions to be where you are. GL for the rest of the season.

        Cheers mate, gonna be a battle but we continue on.

  8. Doolittle
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Any ideas here? Foster's form is concerning (really should have just stuck with Pope on my WC), Bergwijn's game time could be an issue, and Rashford didn't look overly inspiring last night/this morning.

    Foster/Martin
    TAA/Doherty/Maguire/Lascelles/Ward
    Salah/KDB/Fernandes/Bergwijn/Douglas Luiz
    Rashford/Jimenez/DCL

    2 FTs, 0 ITB

    1. Planet_Marss
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      team looks solid.. maybe a keeper swap?
      or berg> pulisic

    2. GreennRed
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Foster and Ward to Pope and fodder.

  9. SpagBol
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Willian or Pulisic for my WC?

    1. Planet_Marss
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      willian: secure
      pulisic: greater potential/more explosive

    2. Lav
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Pulisic

    3. Soto Ayam
        1 month, 3 days ago

        William. Isn't he on penalties and some free kicks?

    4. davies

      Thoughts on this lot from next week onwards?

      Pope 3.9

        Very nice

      3. Lav
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I wonder if Frank will try James at RB, Azpi LB at some point. As a CFC fan I dont rate Alonso, despite his FPL appeal. Just think Frank could do this so be careful.

        Nice side otherwise. Lots of similar players. No Salah & Bruno killing me right now though, and now dont have WC.

        1. Planet_Marss
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 3 days ago

          risk worth taking

        2. davies
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Possibly. I feel I have good enough cover if that ever happens.

      i know its been a while since but did anyone waste a chip gw 29 cos of corona like me.. i wasted a wildcard

        WC too. Didn't help with order of chips since. Have to sneak out a BB soon.

        Me

    6. Nabs Kebabs
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Pretty keen on taking a -4 hit: (Patricio, Saka, DCL -> Pope, Davis, Ings) to give me this:

      Pope
      TAA Doherty AWB
      Salah KDB Son Bruno
      Rashford Jimenez Ings

      Martinez Lascelles Holgate Davis 0.0m

      1. Planet_Marss
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        no need to get rid of patricio.. the dudes killin it.. has better fixtures than pope. ings could be a trap for the next 3 especially cos he's outperformed his xg by miles since restart (though im not too opposed to bringing him in). something to think about...

        1. Nabs Kebabs
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Pope is killing it though. And he gets a lot of hauls due to saves/bps. I much prefer him to Patricio. As for Ings, he looks much better than DCL, regardless of fixtures

          1. Planet_Marss
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 3 days ago

            if youre convinced.. you should do it. i have pope.. so maybe im just taking him for granted hahha

            1. Planet_Marss
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 3 days ago

              you happy with son?

              1. Nabs Kebabs
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 3 days ago

                Son is fpl gold imo, always a goal/assist threat and Mou seems to love him too.

          2. Cruyff's Eleven
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            DCL played Liverpool first up, and is yet to play his 3rd game back.....

            Too early to call, IMHO

            But I agree, Ings looks mighty tempting..

      2. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Not enough cash now for just DCL to Ings and bench for a game or 2 and roll 1 FT
        No way I would lose Patricio.
        Look at the point he and Doherty have racked up since the restart and the fixtures til the end. I have the same combo and they ain’t going anywhere.

        1. Cruyff's Eleven
          • 2 Years

          This ^

          'Not enough cash now for just DCL to Ings and bench for a game or 2 and roll 1 FT"

          huh?

          1. Albrightondknight
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            I mean get Ings in and he could be bench for 1 or 2 difficult fixtures. He is only going to rise in price.

            1. Nabs Kebabs
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              I can't afford him. That's why I need the two downgrades.

      3. Cruyff's Eleven
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I'd wait, see how Son and DCL play first.....

        1. Nabs Kebabs
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          I don't think Son will be going anywhere even if he has a poor game. Any suggestions on who you would consider in for him?

          1. Cruyff's Eleven
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            In your case, not really. Your team looks as template as it gets. Anything else would be a punt probably , but you could consider Mahrez...

            1. Nabs Kebabs
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              bought Mahrez for the DGW. Took the points and banked them, don't think he will be back in my team. Son is a much better pick imho

              1. Cruyff's Eleven
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 3 days ago

                Fair enough...

          isnt that after the game week

            Same as last week.
            The 4 semi finalists play midweek after FA Cup.

    8. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Thinking about a strategy of some punts with a strong bench to back it up for the rest of the season. Is it a decent plan. Punted C on Auba this week.
      This way of thinking has me looking at
      Auba and Lascelles
      To Jesus and Azpi for a hit leaving the following team
      I would go 352 or 343
      Playing TAA Doherty and Azpi
      but who would I drop from the front 8?

      Patricio Button

      TAA Doherty Azpi Aurier Holgate

      Salah Son Bruno Martial Foden

      Jesus Jiménez Greenwood

      A. Moves above for -4
      B. Aurier and Auba
      to Azpi and Jesus -4 with leaves cash for Martial to Mahrez down the line.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah that looks like a right benching headache! Toss up between Foden and Jesus - which ever one you feel is most likely to start or deliver plays and the other benched

        1. Albrightondknight
          • 5 Years

          What about A or B I am leaning toward B as I like the idea of enough cash for Martial to Mahrez.
          Seeing who plays for City this week will help for sure.

    9. SomeoneKnows

      Pope (Martinez)
      TAA, Maguire, Saiss (Lascelles, Holgate)
      Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Son (Guendouzi)
      Jimenez, Rashford, DCL

      What would you do with the above team 0.3 itb + 2ft?

      Thinking of going Maguire > Wan-Bissaka

      1. Jafalad
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Or Maguire to a BUR defender and bring in Ings for DCL?

        1. SomeoneKnows
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Already got Pope as keeper so less inclined of doubling up, and also expecting more clean sheets from Man United

    10. Jinswick
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Best option left for the TC chip?

      Salah (AVL) this week? No fans, but expect LIV will still want to put on a show at their first home game since being crowned champions.

      1. BigRedDog
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I've got it on him at the moment. Looks great on paper. Pretty sure I am going for it. What do you think of this mate?
        Henderson (Reina)
        Fernandez Soyuncu Lundstram Lascelles (Saiss)
        Salah TC KDB Cantwell Martial (Traore)
        Jimenez Auba (Ayew)

        1. MarkoSD
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Sell auba and spread the cash

      2. MarkoSD
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Salah or mane, whoever has less minutes in city game

    11. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I want to do Rashford to greenwood to upgrade greilish to Mahrez and play 3-4-3

      Is it worth doing that for a hit for next week or just wait an extra week?

      If not I’ll have to play greilish or Tammy

      1. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Nice moves. It’s risky but I would try Abraham this week - decent fixture even if he doesn’t start he could get points from 30mins and make the moves next week for free.

      2. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Give BOU game and then move on. Play Abraham.

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Morning all thanks that’s really helpful only other benefit of the hit would be it would also free up funds to do Duda > punt as well maybe sarr in their good run. Having said that I’ll then have 5 mids and 3 strikers I all want to start so one will be benched anyway

          1. Albrightondknight
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            I would still hold if Abraham comes good you will regret it.
            Any feedback on my post above.
            I am getting myself into a similar front 8 - who do you bench problem.

      3. MarkoSD
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Hold

    12. RamaJama
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Which option?

      A) Son/Rashford to Bruno/Jesus
      B) Son/Rashford to Bruno/Ings
      C) AWB/Son to Aurier/Bruno

      Have Martial too, so thing is having AWB/Bruno/Martial or Bruno/Martial/Rashford

      1. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        A

      2. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I would rather D
        Martial to Bruno with another move to fund it as required.

    13. Lucky Z
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Keeping WC and BB to 37 and 38 respectively can be a disaster, is not it?

      With opportunity to have Nketiah + Greenwood on the bench if BB done this week, for example. Thus not spending much on bench.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Maybe but do you expect Arsenal to get much joy from that Wolves defence?

        1. Lucky Z
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          I meant current GW

    14. micsway
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I'm in need of some consoling, I transferred out Bruno for Martial and now due to the price change I can not undo that change, am I doomed for next game week or should I look to their game with the cherries with high hopes?

      1. Soto Ayam
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Trust in your original plan

        • MarkoSD
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Doomed without bruno anyway but martial should do well in cherries game

        • Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          This wasn’t helped by a lot of the cold water FFS have poured on Bruno in multiple articles since Pogba came back

          Many, many folk will have found themselves in similar positions (but obviously everyone owns their own decisions & cant really lay blame anywhere)

          But possibly a little bit less of the “need points now/instant fix” mentality and a little bit more of the “patience/caution/let’s wait&see” mentality would go a long way for many folks in FPL - it’s just not as rock & roll - I can’t help but wonder whether we’ll see similar happening at times in the next few weeks with Salah & KDB

          Meanwhile Mark got Bruno IN this week, on Wildcard, and captained him for a massive 100k rank jump - a classic rope-a-dope

        • Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 3 days ago

          He’ll come good again, always blows a bit hot and cold - Bruno very fortunate with the first goal last night swings and roundabouts

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            He had an effort back off the post shortly before he first goal too though... and will be on pretty much every pen, DFKs & Corner...

            Anyone can hit a dry spell of course, but it doesn’t look like he’s just going quietly into the night now Pogba is back - he’s just got his highest FPL score with Pogba alongside him, and without any set piece points too

            1. Steve The Spud
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Agree - he looks unbelievable to be fair, like a kdb but with a bit more eye for goal and not overweight

      2. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        What is the ideal triple up from Manchester clubs?

        1. Albrightondknight
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          AWB Bruno Greenwood

          Foden Mahrez Jesus

          1. Holmes
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            Cheers

            Time up for Kevin?

            1. Albrightondknight
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Who knows if I had the funds it would be a tight call whether I would chance KDB or Mahrez and some cash.

              1. Steve The Spud
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 3 days ago

                AWB bruno greenwood

                Kdb Mahrez Laporte/Jesus

        2. HMC

          • 9 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          i'm sure if you asked this question a couple of days ago Greenwood would not be in the equation
          funny how things can turn
          not to say he's not a viable option moving forward but does seem very reactive from 1 game

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            This - for my money we’re going to see a similar phenomenon with DCL & Richarlison with those last 3 fixtures & their current quiet output

      3. SpagBol
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        1. Thoughts on this wildcard?
        2. Do i need Foden?
        3. Is 1 up top too light?
        4. Also thoughts on bench boost?

        Cheers!

          1) Looks good. Keep track of Pulisic knock. Willian might be better if looking for a CHE mid.

          2) Nah, you don't need Foden but you can get him incase Pulisic goes missing.

          3) As of now, its not too light due to lack of options. Ings is probably the only in form option you are missing, his fixtures are tricky anyway.

          4) Will be a decent bench if Nketiah and Greenwood play.

            Thanks man!

            Appreciate your response.

            Do you think it is wise to keep big hitters such as TAA, Salah and KDB as well?

            1. Holmes
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Since you have covered pretty much all big players like Son/Fernandes/Jimenez, I think its wise to hold the premium trio for now.

              In future you can drop Son/Salah for Mahrez/Sterling if required.

        2. Albrightondknight
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          It looks very good but would you make a defence downgrade to get Nketiah to Ings and Pulisic to Foden
          Foden and Ings have nice fixtures that week too for BB. They are away fixtures but no crowds so maybe it’s not a big factor.
          And if you don’t fancy playing Ings for the next week or 2 I would be happy starting Foden and Greenwood.

            I’d say last night’s 11 was their best team and they can’t really afford to lose even 1 max 2 games in the league from here, should start I guess but who knows

        • MarkoSD
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Grenwood to rashford or to be happy because I got greenwood?

          Of course I got him on the bench this gw
