Aleksandar Antonov wins 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League crown

A fantastic Gameweek 38+ for Aleksandar Antonov was enough for the Bulgarian to leap from third to first in the overall Fantasy Premier League standings and clinch the 2019/20 crown.

Aleksandar scored a whopping 93 points without the aid of a chip, with his successful captaincy of Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) proving key.

Double-digit hauls for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) and Bruno Fernandes (£9.0m) also boosted his score, with almost 70% of his Gameweek 38+ total coming from those three aforementioned players.

The two managers who had been immediately above our new champion, Joshua Bull and erstwhile leader Chris McGowan, both used chips in Gameweek 38+ but were edged out on the final day.

Joshua used his second Wildcard and racked up 68 points, overtaking Chris but finishing 18 points short of Aleksandar.

Our runner-up captained Harry Kane (£11.0m) on the concluding afternoon of football but even if he had handed the armband to De Bruyne, would still have finished in second spot.

Above: Aleksandar’s winning team

Chris used his Triple Captain chip on Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), meanwhile, with the Egyptian only registering a ‘one-pointer’ after coming off the bench in the second half on Tyneside.

Again, though, handing the armband to his vice-captain, Raheem Sterling (£12.0m), wouldn’t have stopped Aleksandar from winning.

Chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen had a Gameweek 38+ to forget after a memorable season, captaining Salah after taking a hit to bring the Liverpool winger in.

Magnus’s Gameweek score of 40 saw him drop from fourth to 11th in the overall standings.

Fantasy Football Scout Leagues

Aleksandar and Chris finished as first and second in our Fantasy Football Scout league, with Bill Wilkins claiming the bronze medal after a successful Free Hit on the final day.

Our Members League was won by Nathan Woollaston, who finished three points clear of regular contributor Lateriser.

Tom Russell claimed the third podium spot in that league.

Ismail Hossan Rasel was the victor in our post-restart mini-league, with TopMarx coming out on top amongst the Mods and Cons.


Congratulations to all of the above managers on their hugely successful seasons.

We’ll have more reaction to come on these success stories in the next few days and weeks.

    Pretty happy with my finish
    76 pts, finished at 43k overall
    see you next season!

      bonjour!

    Last season finished in the top 100, this season I just about managed to scrape into the top 200k. As much as I like to think last year was skill and this year I got unlucky, reality is probably the other way around!

      Bit of both. There's a lot of luck involved in the game.

      1. wulfranian

        I think the luck is more in the football than in the game.

      What's your luck on fplreview.com/season-review? Mine was -72.45, with a similar ranking to yours.

    So guys....did your rank go up or down Vs 2019?

      up, 52k last year, 43k this year

        Down. 17k to 37k this year.
        Pretty happy though as I got back to 37k from 4.2m (!) - managed to forget about the start of FPL and had a complete placeholder team at the start as a result.
        Won my main mini-league by 3 points

      Went up this year despite a terrible start in the millions after GW10. Think most people were in that position though.
      8K finish vs 30K last year

      Up. 217K after my first season playing in 3 years. Finished 23K. A touch disappointed after the start I had and the work I put in throughout but I'll take it. Next season the goal is top 1K.

    4. Kuzser
      • 3 Years

      went up, but not happy with my 39k after being in top 4k during the season and in top 15k after gw34

    5. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Way down (141k) and actually a reality check after finishing inside Top 10k for 3 consecutive years. But I've learnt a lot going into next season and a bad season was always due after so much luck past 3 seasons hopefully it's out of the way now.

      1. Champ

        You must have been doing something right before so you can do it again

    6. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      From 6xx to 34k. Before restart was 4k. Still ok happy even though top10k was missed. Fortunately next season is right around the corner 😀

      Steady improvement over my 3 years..
      17/18 3.6m (lol)
      18/19 880k
      19/20 154k

      Slow start seems to always be my biggest problem, need to find a way to stop that!

      Down: 53,360 from 9,107 the year before. Should have been around 25-30k; threw it away in the last week really (with a fairly desperate -8. Stupid decision). Still. Pretty happy with that, still my 4th best finish ever.

      1. Champ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bad season last year finished 160k. Back in form this year and finished 8k. If only I hadn't sold Bruno for Silva just before the last deadline!

      1. Champ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Well done! I find this kind of thing really interesting. On the face of it, all the evidence was that Silva was a better bet than Bruno for the last week. Form, fixtures, the romantic last PL game narrative, Bruno looking tired in recent games, but it turned out to be the wrong decision. How should we as managers judge a decision like that? Was it still the right thing to do even though it didn't pay off?

        1. Pep bites Kun
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          My take and one which helps me to make sense of it all, is that it's very difficult to have a decision pay off in 1 gw. I class this as a punt, which can go either way, but on FH you have to take the gamble that the majority of your decisions will bare fruit. The hit-rate factor, if you will

      Massively up. 2.8k but tinged with disappointment after blowing a 23 point ML lead on the final day to my rival who's beaten me 12 years on the spin.

      1. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        dang, that must smart a bit. I did a similar thing, lost a 17 point lead in the final GW. He captained KDB, I went with Sterling. I sold Bruno for Son, he kept Bruno. I wouldn’t say I blew it, he made the better plays.

        1. fish&chips
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Exactly the same move of Bruno to son for me!! Cost me the title.

          Ah well, once the dust settles I'm sure I'll realise it was a great season for me.

          Sorry to hear you met the same fate!!

          1. Rasping Drive
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years

            Thanks F&C. Yeah, quite happy with my OR as well. Especially since I was 2.5m in GW10.

    17. Lignja

      Down like fron 30k last year to 130 this, but was cheking my captians this year was like 90% missed... If i got some of my vc as C would be my best season...

        Next season top 200, season after top 50, then you'll be in running for 1st.

    20. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      strangely, I did play differently for each last 3 seasons (aggressively taking hits/not taking hit, early/late transfers, following guts/stats, etc.) and ended up at the same final points (lowly 2200)

    21. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Down from 2Kish to 400K 😉

    22. Root

      Down 200k from last years 30k finish. Braindead moves all season long.

      2019/20 2300 49,549

      Not especially delighted as I was hoping for a top 25k finish but had some decisions go against me a few too many times!

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Consistent

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          True there’s that but it’s always hiding the story during the season. Like this season I got as high as 18k but then bad luck and not going with my gut got in the way!

    24. COLLIN QUANER
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      40k last season. 95k this season. Poor captaincy choices let me down this season. Had too much faith in Salah whilst Bruno and Sterling were firing on all cylinders

    25. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Little rise, 8k to 7k.

    26. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Up from 36K to just over 7K. Disastrous last week when my OR doubled following poor decisions.

      1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Oof, KDB and Bruno to Sterling and Silva for a hit.

        I also should have held with most of my players. The FH hurt me in the end.

    27. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Poor year last year, couldn't call a captain: 132,145
      This season, bit more luck and made transfers looking at stats: 3,537

    28. King Kohli
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Worst season in 10 years of playing FPL.
      From 47k last season to 165k this.
      Time to re strategize and get back at it!

    29. ydnakurz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Down! Just outside top 3k last year, 450k this year! Thought I'd cracked this game with last year's finish. Then the game bit my arse! Still, up from 950k since the restart....

    30. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    When would the fixtures be released for 2020-21 season?

    1. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Surely, we will have to know the last team to join Premier League first. So, my guess is a week after 4 Aug.

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        This

  5. SHOOTER MCGINN
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    4 at the back will be big next year, potentially 4-5-1. Too many good attacking options to fit in and rather a 4.5 defender than midfielder or striker. Probably say the same every year and end up back at 3-4-3.

    1. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Hard to know until we see the prices I guess

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      This time last year I was sold on big at the back following season value.

      Can see 4 working if and when a new Lund Awb emerges. But for me there’ll be real interest around the 8-9.5 mark up top. Following form and fixtures could work with these who are likely easy enough swaps

      Ings
      Martial
      Rashford
      Greenwood
      Jim
      Werner
      Antonio etc

    3. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I am betting there will be position changes next season. All the top mids with very few exceptions are actually forwards. KDB and Bruno who are mids should be high cost. Moving Mane Salah Sterling Martial etc to forwards will improve the game. Also, wing backs should really go to midfield.

      1. suddenorgan
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        only Martial from those will change

      2. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I have to agree with wing backs shall be midfielders

    4. T.Henry14
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      3-5-2 i suppose

    5. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      So interesting how the straegies change on here over the years. The rally cry used to be "cheap at the back", then "Power Forwards" and now it is 5 MF. Pricing is obviously the driving force, but so are the changing tactics on the field ( incraesed use of wing backs). It keeps the game fun and fresh!

  6. The Senate
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    really want to see as many attacking wingers as possible moved into ATT as possible (Salah, Mane, Sterling, etc.)
    Make only having three ATT slots a pain again!

    1. The Rock
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I think there will be some changes in that regard alright.

      It does remove a lot of options from MF but still the likes of KDB, Bruno, Maddison, Mount, Alli, Siggy, Pogba left to choose from.

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Not really. Just change the choices from 2 5 5 3 to 2 5 4 4.

    Official talks started between Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen for Havertz.
    Chelsea want to complete the deal soon but would pay €80m fee only including add ons. Talks on to find an agreement. Personal terms agreed weeks ago. Kai is waiting.

    1. The Rock
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      And it looks like Willian is going to sign a new deal as well.

      How will Lampard keep everyone happy? Willian, Pulisic, Mount, RLC, CHO, Abraham, Giroud, Werner, Ziyech and Havertz... 10 players fighting for 4 positions. Going to be some very unhappy players there.

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Havertz could be gold in FPL next term.

          So could Pulisic and Werner.... but the things is with all those options I don't think anyone will be nailed.

        Surely RLC and Abraham will want to leave if they sign Havertz as well

        Exactly. Where he needs most, defense, nothing is happening.

          He's doing the right thing. Liverpool approach under Klopp. First get the attack really going and then once you consistently score 2+ goals every game, bolster the defence. Much easier than the Mourinho approach of shoring up the defense first.

          1. FALSE PROFIT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            The difference is Klopp bought 3 players and he has only 5 real choices up top. Lampard will have 10. Far too top heavy. The big heads will start moaning.

      4. ClassiX
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        It's the ManC model - must have 2 top-notch players for each of the attacking roles if you're going to remain competitive in Pl and CL. Makes perfect sense. Does seem like defense is still a bit weak and will be interesting to see if Kepa is kept.

      5. Siva Mohan

        Giru, Willian will be a squad players and CHO will be loaned

        not sure what Abraham has in store..

    Best finish for me - but still huge improvement needed as only finished in top 300k!

    Just realised that I have given away 140 points in transfer costs - mainly out of boredom and being radical!!!

    Next season gonna try and keep the transfers down to a minimum!!!!

        Agree with this. I took a step back from hits this season unless there was a clear plan in place. To help with this discipline I didn't do any transfers until the day before, or the morning of the deadline. Certainly helped me playing with transfers for the sake of it during the week

          I'm going to write down some rules for next season:
          - Hits are only for injuries
          - Only look at the long term; you can never know what's going to happen in any one gameweek
          - Don't waste your chips!

          And I'm going to have a second team to mess around with - or do the Sky game for more tinkering options!

            Mys season took a swing in the right direction once I started using a 4 week planner on a spreadsheet. It stopped a lot of one week punts which very rarely would work out.

              All my transfers recently were utter garbage. Like 4 weeks ago o took a -12. Removed Son and Jimi, both scored that week and my transfer in didnt.
              For 38 I took a -8 which involved KDB>Sterling, that went terribly as well.
              I got away with the -12, but the final -8 was pretty bad.

                I took a -8 for the last week as well. Bruno, Vardy, Rashford -> Sterling, Nketiah, Kane. Not a complete disaster, but the 8 points cost me a fair bit of rank in the end. Didn't have all that much to play for by then, though!

                  I think it's really hard to give that one transfer a week the value it really deserves. Having a bench you can use to change things up at least a bit helps a lot, I think.

    Bittersweet end to the season for me. Won 2 cash mini leagues for £700 but dropped outside the top 100k by covering opponents players (i.e. KDB to Sterling (C) yesterday).

    Can’t decide if winning mini leagues or rank is more important - what do people think?

    1. Nickemon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Unless you're fighting for a top 1k position (or thereabouts) the cash is more important, if you ask me.

      £700 is pretty nice!!

        Ha! Thanks guys, I guess you’re right it wasn’t going to be a great season anyway so cash is more important. Just annoying that I could’ve played my own game and would’ve got a better rank as well as winning the leagues!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          I tend to aim for the highest possible OR every year. If I play well I place high in the ML's. I'm not THAT good of a player, but a couple of years ago I did have a lot of luck and placed 718 overall. But I still didn't win my ML... 😀 A friend placed 225 overall...

          1. JB_FC
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Yeah that’s normally my tactic to aim for the highest possible OR and then ML’s look after themselves. I found out the guy 2nd had TC’d Sterling and I didn’t have him in my team so transferred him in for KDB. First time I’ve been outside the top 100k in 6 seasons but guess I was lucky this time that everyone in my leagues did worse!

            I have a friend who finsished about 250th this year. He was still smashed in his local ML (not national) by someone who finished in under 70th position. Tough league.

    Never ceases to amuse me, when fans of a team that's just been relegated to the Championship talk about coming straight back up as Champions.

    It rarely ever happens and often the team that goes down ends up in another relegation battle the following season.

    The Championship is no respecter of anyone, its a damn hard league to get out of.

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Can't see either Watford or Bournemouth coming back. Funnily I would be less surprised if Norwich returned

    2. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I think we won't see Bournemouth in the PL for a while but Norwich are used to relegation & promotions

    3. Greek Freak
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      The change in mentality is tricky too. It's well documented in the transition from the Championship to the Premier League - a lot of teams find it hard to adjust to losing most of the time when they were winning most of the time.

      The opposite is also true for relegated teams - you go a full season of being the whipping boys, it's not that easy to all of a sudden be winners, even if the opposition is in theory less hard.

      1. Nickemon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        And the squads too.

        Look at Bournemouth for instance. How many of Callum, King, Brooks, Aké, Lewis Cook, etc, will stay? Remove them from the squad and you're a typical Championship squad, imo, with players like Steve Cook, Francis, Surman, etc, etc.
        Nothing wrong with them, obviously, but they lack the quality to be a top team next year.

        1. Better off with a pin and a…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Yes - I think a lot depends on how the club is run and the ambition and sorts of players they have. If you go down and then lose a large chunk of the squad because finances or player ambition forces it then you're probably in a worse position then a club who can hang on to a good nucleus of players. If Bournemouth kept all their current players they'd probably do well, but that's not likely, I don't think.

          1. Nickemon
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Seems like there are loads of uncertainties this year regarding both finances and transfer windows, due to Covid-19 too.

            Bournemouth's finances should be fine, considering they've been a PL club for a number of years now, but to be fair, I've no idea if that's actually the case.

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      This - though the double relegation is fairly irregular tbh at least immediately

      It's also a wildly fun league to be part of if you can shake the feeling of degradation and settle back to enjoy the rollercoaster. The quality of the football is decently high and in a typical season play offs are within sight until week 30 for about a dozen teams.

      The elation of a promotion I suspect matches everything bar CL success and the PL title. The play off final is surely a much bigger game nowadays than the the Cup final.

      I'm one Palace fan who is quite relaxed about looming relegation. The one real pitfall for me of relegation is the spectre of financial collapse - that bit is no fun.

      Championship is not an easy league to escape, look at Leeds & WBA.
      Forest blew a prime spot & gave away too many easy goals to lesser teams.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        The concept of lesser teams doesn’t really apply though.

        There are teams who are on a bad streak but just about everyone has a huge financial backer and there are loads still with PL parachutes in place,

        Bottom beating top is commonplace. My Stokey brother-in-law was most relaxed about Brentford Leeds and Forest in the run in to avoid very real chance of relegation.

    Magnus Carlsen... I'm baffled.

    GW1:
    Sterling (v) - 20pts
    KDB - 7pts

    GW2:
    KDB (C) - 22pts
    Sterling - 6pts

    GW3:
    Sterling (C) - 16pts
    KDB - 5pts

    .
    He seems to prefer Sterling, yet captains KDB in GW2, catching his haul. What made him decide to switch? HOW DID HE KNOW?!

    I had a look at the expected data for GW1, which I know he rates highly, but KDB's was crap and Sterling's was great as usual, so that can't have influenced the decision to switch... why'd he give KDB the armband...

    1. Ole.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Theory: kdb hauls game after sterling hauls. Probably nonsense.

  16. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Problem with Fernandes is if UTD do not get as many penalties next season, that already sees his hauls reduced. He is not the kind of player to just pop up out of nowhere and score. Pulisic settled now and full season with hopefully no injuries I reckon will be one of the most explosive players next season.

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Remains to be seen just how nailed Pulisic is next season - Chelsea are hoarding attacking assets. Agreed on Bruno mostly - price dependent for value imo in GW1 (see previous page)

    2. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      He will tick consistently like KDB. Think both will once again be in top4 fpl mids come end of season

    3. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      He's already scored a couple of goals for us out of nowhere.

    4. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Actually he's exactly the type of player to pop up and score from midfield, wouldn't worry about him. Matching this season is probably not gonna happen but he'll still score very well

      Also utd will definitely continue to get penalties anyway

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        14 pens is 9 more Liverpool and twice as many as Chelsea. Don't see any particular reason why that variation should continue. Either his value as pen taken falls or the pen taker for another club rises.

        Still a good asset mind

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          I wouldn't try not to get distracted from the wood by the trees

          Even in the scenario where they didn't get fouled in the box & awarded as many penalties as this season - some of those incidents would then by definition go on to be goals

          And remember Bruno hasn't had 14 penalties - he's had 4 penalties (3 of them were right imo, one was wrong)

          And in addition to those four penalties he's gotten 4 goals from play, 8 assists, and hit the woodwork at least another 2-3 times if not more - he's also a baps magnet

          Not a player I'd really want to be going without tbh - I don't even think he'll cost mega bucks, reckon 10.5 max, if not 10.0

    5. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Man U getting so many pens is down to Martial and Rash, Puli will also pull a lot of pens for Chelsea, and now Willian is gone it will be interesting who the Chelsea pen taker will be.
      How many pens have Palace had? Zaha typically draws a lot and feeds Mili.
      The number of Man U pens will drop but not by much, Chelsea’s number will increase.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Palace have pretty much drawn a blank this year with just 3 down from 10 last time iirc.

    6. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Part of my reason in removing Bruno was that I though Rashord would have ben next on penalties. Reading the reports it seems Bruno didn't exactly perfomr miracles so I ma happy wih my decision to take him out, if not the result.

      As for Pulisic - he;s going to have so much competition - see the post further above.

    Checking my history and my TV was never higher than £103.8 and average TV was £102.1 over the season.
    I haven't given the TV too much importance at all yet I know many do.
    I made many of my transfers on a Friday rather than chasing price rises and had a successful season.
    Anyone agree that chasing value can get in the way of rational thinking/planning?

      What did your OR finish on?

        Hi mate. Finished 4,088th

      You shouldn't be blind to team value but as you suggest it should be considered a metric of very low importance indeed.

      You do need to think about whether price rises/falls have the potential to get in the way of your plans. But if price changes are ever any kind of starting point for your transfers, you're very unlikely to do even moderately well overall.

      The guy who won my ML ended up at 3,408 overall and had a TV of 109.8! It's not the be-all and end-all, but he used it really well; he was able to have Salah, Sterling, KDB, Bruno, TAA and Robertson for most of the run-in. His GW 38+ free hit included Robbo, Bruno, KDB, Salah, Dilva, Jimi, Auba, Kane (plus Pope, Aurier and Pieters). Not having to choose between them and not having to use transfers juggling around meant he missed fewer hauls and did really well over the last few weeks.

        Obviously that is very impressive. I'd have rather been in his shoes than mine for sure

    4. Firminoooo

      I build TV first part of the season (107.4). Helps for FH, WC in DGWs. This year TV didn’t help me after restart. To many cheap options: Greenwood, Foden..

  18. HurriKane
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    First two names in my team next season

    Greenwood 8.5m
    Foden 8m

    Will they be in yours?

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Not if Utd sign Sancho

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Yh that would complicate things. I like to see Greenwood uptop. He's more natural striker than both Rashford and Martial

        Plus longterm Sancho will be a threat to Martial than Greenwood

    2. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      First two on mine will be TAA and De Bruyne I'd say.

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        get a big bank loan then.

    3. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Nah they can’t be that expensive, I won’t pay that for them no way.
      Green - 7 mill
      Foden - 7 mill
      If greenwood is 8.5 what do you think rash and martial will be? I think both will be 10 mil and I prefer both massively to Green. And Foden I don’t really care about

    4. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Foden won't be anywhere near my team at that price

      After the hacking earlier this season, no way would I give my password to anyone.

      1. COLLIN QUANER
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Agreed. I've seen a lot of people on twitter using it to check their live score/rank, however I think I'll stick to LiveFpl website

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years

          I wouldn't use those on Twitter as a benchmark for intelligence 😀

      I've used it for 2 seasons without issue. Mainly use during the live matches to compare my real-time score to other managers that I'm tracking in my various ML's. It has some useful tools which you can use to compare against the tools provided on this site - it's uses different algorithms but where they overlap with this site then generally it's a good help to make decisions.

      Up to this season it had a great premium tool "transfer spy", but now that FPL aren't revealing the team value of other players until GW starts, it isn't worth paying for. #propercheat

    Players you are making a quiet note of for you first draft next season based on their form toward the end of this?

    I’ll start. ...

    Tierney

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Tierney, Pulisic, Foden, Greenwood

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I've made a provisional list and it looks like this:
      Foden
      Saka
      Greenwood
      Tierney
      Pulisic
      TAA (possibly even at 8.5)
      (Stuart Armstrong)
      (Lamptey)
      Brackets indicate requiring further investigation

      1. Freund88
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Pieters?

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          probably not - Burnley injuries will be fixed by then.

    3. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      These to choose from:
      Pope
      TAA
      Robbo
      Aurier
      Tierney
      Salah
      KDB
      Bruno
      Puli
      Martial
      Rashford
      Jimi
      Ings

      Greenwood?
      Grealish?
      Foden?
      Saka?

      1. CBonci
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I like Grealish too. He’s so dynamic he just has too much to do to carry the team atm

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Any talisman I like tbh as long as they have goals in them. At points this season Grealish was a great own, just need to decide when’s best to have him.

    4. CBonci
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      For budget options I’d take a good look at Saints players pending fixture list. JWP/Armstrong in mid, KWP, and of course Ings. Loved the way they played post-restart

      1. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Che Adams finished the season quite strongly too

    5. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Depends on signings, Soucek if his price stays low. Interesting to see if Jimenez stays at Wolves, Grealish stays at Villa, whether Haller regains spot from Antonio or if West Ham sign a new striker, if not Antonio for sure.

    6. T.Henry14
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Saint-Maximin maybe

  21. CBonci
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    One thing about this season I will say is that I found myself chasing points too often. Biggest example was GW38+. I transferred out KDB and Bruno thinking that Sterling’s GB motivation coupled with DSilva pushing KDB deeper and Martial’s speed on the counter would be more important than sticking with 2 players who had been for the most part very consistent (albeit Bruno in much less time). Will keep this in mind when I get the itch to hit that confirm button!

    1. Jerr63
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yes me too. I paid too much attention to Sterling / Silva hype so transferred out De Bruyne and Bruno. I lost twenty points right there. I compounded this by keeping armband on Salah. When to hold my nerve and when to change my strategy are two lessons to keep learning.

  22. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 27 days ago

    What’s your fantasy team of the season? Just use the FPL player positioning

    Pope
    TAA - Lundstram - Soy (Robbo, Aurier)
    KDB - Martial - Salah - Traore (Bruno)
    Ings - Jimi - Vardy

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Mane over Mo - easy to forget how offbeat it felt to prefer him when he was a full million cheaper. Mane KdB was quite out there as a variation of Mo Sterling and it was ultimately way better value.

      Greenwood sneaks in as 8th attacker and Bruno surely starts.

      VVD gets in ahead of Robbo

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Bruno is beast yea, I only benched him due to playing a short period. And this is kinda based on what these players did for my team really. Don’t think I ever had VVD this season, but yea probably better pick then Robbo in reality.

    2. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Pope
      TAA, Lundstram, Soy, (Tomori, Hanley)
      KDB, Salah, Mount, Madison, Grealish
      Jiminez, Abraham, (Greenwood)

      1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        This isn't my dream team, but rather the players that did me well over the season, obviously wouldn't pick them all now. By time I got Bruno he was owned by most of my rivals so kept me afloat but didn't help me gain ground.

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Yea, Lundstram and Ings did so well for me. Ings ruined me post Corona though 🙁

          1. Mac90
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Pope
            TAA, Robbo, Lundstram, Egan, Doherty
            DeBryune, Sterling, Mane, Bruno, Martial
            Ings, Rashford, Greenwood

            Quite biased towards recent GWs. Can't remember much of the early season, but some perform so well for me or my rivals this season that they left an impression on me

            (TAA, Robbo, Lund, Doherty, Mane Rashford)

      He did do slightly better than the tables suggest mind. The RC and -3 and missing 3 outings put him about 15 points down on where he could have ended

    After thinking I’d finally gotten to grips with ff last season with a 17k finish I struggled to ever get going this season (260k).

    Never actually subscribed to the members part of this site, assuming it’s worth the relatively low spend?

          Fixture ticker / RMT tool combo. Basically all i use in there other than the odd comparison. Spotting holes in your team weeks in advance is really beneficial. Could do the same without it by creating your own ticker and making your own predictions but ain't got time for that. Not a stats based player at all but if you are then theres a heap of that in there too. Seems almost endless tbh.

    Anyone browse the transfrmrkt.co.uk site much? They've a very nifty feature where you can set the league table to different time ranges ... For example:

    League table *Before* Bruno came in (all teams 24 games played):

    1. Liverpool 70
    2. Man City 51
    3. Leicester 48
    4. Chelsea 40
    5. Man Utd 34

    League table *After* Bruno came in (all teams 14 games played):

    1. Man Utd 32
    2. Man City 30
    3. Liverpool 29
    4. Arsenal 26
    5. Chelsea 26

    Goal difference, goals scored, and goals conceded are all even more interesting...

    If Man Utd make a good use of this transfer window, they could surprise a lot of folks next year

    1. Mac90
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Sancho. Sanchoooo.

      I mean Mbappe would be too much maybe?

    2. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I’m not convinced. Certain teams seemed to massively benefit from the lack of crowds and I think united were one.

  27. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Martial as a forward next season around 9.0 really going to spice things up next season. Green as a mid could be the biggest bargain of all. Some are suggesting 7 to 7.5. Will his price increase by that much? I am thinking around 6.5.

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      7.5 max, I reckon 7. Rash and Martial both 10 and both forwards.

      1. The Train Driver
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        If Greenwood becomes mid so should Rash, what's the difference?

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 27 days ago

          FPL will try put people off the Martial and Rash double up imo. So will classify both as forwards. I know people like Greenwood but he is not an alternative to either of those two for me.

    2. Mac90
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I think his price is going to be 10.5. Hauls at home. Get points away, all while doing it with limited rest days

      Agree on Greenwood.

  28. Mac90
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    There should be an article with hot topic on predicted price next season

    Would be interesting to read

    I think
    KDB - 12.5
    Bruno - 10.5
    Trent - 8.5

    for example

    1. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      12
      10
      7

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        TAA @ 7?! Not a chance.

        1. Hot Toddy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          7.5 at most I'd say. Robertson moved to 7 after 213pt season. TAA 7 also and got 210pts this season. 8 would be really unfair. I think they'll both stay at 7 but 7.5 wouldn't be a huge shock.

    2. Greek Freak
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I posted about TAA yesterday, and on why I expect him to be 7.5.

      He started the season at 7.0 after scoring 185 points in 2460 minutes. This season he's scored 210 points in 3173 minutes (actually worse points per minute ratio), I think a 0.5 increase is fair.

      One of the replies offered a nice counter-argument as to why he should be 8.0, but 8.5 doesn't make much sense in my opinion.

      1. Mac90
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        oooh that's an even more precise analysis.

        I'm convinced by what you say.

        1. Mac90
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          If it really is 7 or 7.5 mil, he's such a bargain. Liverpool concede goals but only like 1 goal per match so many times

          If they do priced him based on his performance before Liv win the title, it would be 8 I'd say. From GW 18 onwards

          1. Greek Freak
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            The counter-argument from yesterday to my point above:

            "After just one explosive season, they're usually cautious about the price, but two seasons in a row will give him a good boost. Plus he's already reached 7.7 now with almost all FPL managers keeping him the whole season, so I doubt they'll start him at lower than that."

            That makes sense too, so I would understand 8 (even though personally I think it should be 7.5 as I said). More than 8 I don't agree with.

    3. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      My price predictions:
      Jimi - 9
      Ings - 8.5
      Martial - 10
      Rash - 10
      Pope - 5.5
      TAA - 7.5
      KDB - 11
      Tierney - 5.5
      Aurier - 5.5
      Son - 9.5
      Kane - 11
      Bruno - 9.5
      Greenwood - 7
      Foden - 7
      Vardy - 10.5

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Saka - 6.5

      2. Greek Freak
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Other than KDB and Bruno, this looks about right to me.

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 27 days ago

          think KDB will be 12/12.5?
          I cant see Bruno jumping to double digits so soon, not enugh data to go off to justify it, same price as Son imo. 10 Mil is possible

      3. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Jimi - 9
        Ings - 9
        Martial - 10
        Rash - 10
        Pope - 5.5
        TAA - 8.0
        KDB - 12.0
        Tierney - 5.5
        Aurier - 5.5
        Son - 9.5
        Kane - 11
        Bruno - 10.5
        Greenwood - 7.5 (maybe less is Sancho comes)
        Foden - 7.5
        Vardy - 10.0
        Saka - 6

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Saka, Foden and Green may be some shrewd picks next season. 7.5 is too much for me in regards to Foden, Green I can hack that
