Why I’m being patient with my FPL transfers after a disappointing Gameweek 1

Fantasy Premier League managers should exercise patience, even after a difficult Gameweek 1 for some.

It can be easy to make rash transfer decisions after one round of matches, but, if I do transfer anyone out, I will be doing it after much consideration in the cold light of day, and ensuring the change is made after upcoming midweek matches.

The gap between the first two Gameweeks is one of my favourite times of an FPL season. Blank Gameweek clubs aside, we now have a full set of data from the first round of fixtures, as well as a first look at the teamsheets for each club.

That has given us more information to rely on in terms of owning the right £4.0m defenders and £4.5m midfielders, as well as the right premium assets. 

At this stage, it would be very easy to panic. There are several big decisions to be made, even after just one Gameweek in the history books.

As I write this, Mohamed Salah (£12.0m) is owned by 33.9% managers worldwide, 66% of them are perhaps wondering how to fit the Egyptian King into their squads, or how to hold their nerve for one more week – and there is the return of both Manchester clubs to contend with.

Meanwhile, there were many in the Fantasy community planning to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m) ahead of Gameweek 3, but his goal and Arsenal’s performance at Fulham could make such a move harder than some might have imagined. Up next, the Gunners face a West Ham side that looked off-colour against Newcastle, so Aubameyang could conceivably be heading into Gameweek 3 on the back of two decent scores.

With so many of the dilemmas featuring the most expensive players in the game, Aubameyang, Salah and the Manchester assets, I am expecting chaotic FPL transfers this week, with plenty of price changes.

Ahead of Gameweek 2, the market comes into its own as managers make early moves to bring in players and avoid price rises. 

On Saturday, 10,000 brave souls sold Salah before he had even kicked a ball against Leeds. A further 1,000 of them jettisoned him during the game itself, an outing in which he scored a hat-trick and registered a 20-point haul. 

By half-time at Craven Cottage, Aubameyang was the sixth-most transferred-in, as well as being the third-most transferred-out player. Elsewhere, Son Heung-min (£9.0m) had suffered the loss of 3,000 managers by the time Crystal Palace hosted Southampton Saturday, despite not playing until the following afternoon.

A lot of this early chopping and changing of other managers does make it hard to stick to your strategy. In such circumstances, it is easy to second-guess yourself constantly, worried about being priced out of your must-have transfer.

There is no way to win FPL, or indeed lose it, during the opening couple of Gameweeks… but you can destroy your strategy by panicking and overthinking. 

The whole of pre-season was spent formulating a team that we believed would be the right one for the beginning of the campaign, not just for Gameweek 1. 

Players such as Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m), Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m), Sadio Mané (£12.0m) and Danny Ings (£8.5m) are not, all of a sudden, bad options because they blanked in Gameweek 1. These are the sort of players who showed last season that they can often return points.

Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) is a prime example of how luck can play a part in Fantasy. He managed just three penalty box touches at West Bromwich Albion, two of which were spot-kicks, which he converted. The Leicester man did not pass the eye test at all, yet he ended up as one of the highest-scoring forwards of the Gameweek. Sometimes the luck is with you, as was the case with Vardy owners in Gameweek 1, and sometimes it’s not. This trend will continue to oscillate throughout the course of the season, so do not be too easily disheartened. Premium assets are expensive for a reason and luck can turn in a heartbeat.

As for myself, owning Salah and Aubameyang for this opening weekend was a good decision; the rest of my players were complete let-downs. 

Like many of you, I am tempted to remove some players who failed to deliver in Gameweek 1. I could switch Che Adams (£6.0m) to Patrick Bamford (£5.5m) or Saint-Maximin to Daniel Podence (£5.5m), for example. However, these sorts of rash transfer decisions, based only on frustration and data from just one match, nearly always do more harm than good in the long-term.

During the build-up to Gameweek 1, I had a plan for my transfers and I intend to stay true to it. My FPL management style is the opposite of an upside-chaser. I am loyal to my FPL assets, I like to hold and roll transfers and give myself as much thinking time and data as possible to make my decisions with. 

Between now and the Gameweek 2 deadline, we have EFL Cup matches for Newcastle, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, West Brom, Fulham, Southampton, Leeds, Everton, Sheffield United, Wolves and Brighton – and Spurs are in Europea League action too. 

As far as I am concerned, each of these is another chance to evaluate a team and the busy schedule is another reason to wait until Thursday or Friday before making my transfers.

These midweek fixtures could all throw up potential injuries that could force FPL managers into another transfer, or even an unwanted points-hit if moves have already been made. I hate doing this, so I will remain as patient as possible.

But just because I want to take this approach with transfers, does not mean I won’t be making any at all. At this stage, I am not ruling out changes for Gameweek 2.

FPL lessons learned as Martial and Rashford outscore Fernandes

I planned to start the season with a Manchester United asset on my bench so that I was ready for their Gameweek 2 match against Crystal Palace. However, in the build-up to the Gameweek 1 deadline, there were doubts around Marcus Rashford’s (£9.5m) fitness, Bruno Fernandes‘ (£10.5m) potential need for quarantine, as well as uncertainty surrounding Mason Greenwood (£7.5m) in light of an ongoing Jadon Sancho transfer saga, and the youngster’s antics while on international duty with England. The number of unknowns surrounding Manchester United assets meant I did not feel comfortable deciding who to own a whole week ahead of their opening game of the campaign.

Coupling this dilemma with the high ownership of other similarly-priced assets convinced me to go with Son for a home meeting with Everton. This was a decision which, on paper, felt like the right one. Spurs had not lost a Premier League match against Everton since December 2012. Well, now the Toffees’ last victory against them came as recently as… last weekend. Even though Son has previously represented a viable investment, his wider role in Jose Mourinho’s team continues to disappoint the South Korean’s Fantasy owners, just as it did during Project Restart.

That said, Son was always in my team as something of a cash-cow, ready and waiting to be upgraded to a Manchester United asset at some point. Is Gameweek 2 too early to pull the trigger on such a move? This was something I was happy to consider before kick-off on opening day, on reflection, I am even happier to do now. But with so many players failing to impress in Gameweek 1, the difficulty comes in deciding who my priority transfers are.

'Out of position' Zaha scores as £4.0m defender Mitchell aids Palace clean sheet

Crystal Palace surprised me in their 1-0 win over Southampton. They were stronger defensively than we saw at the end of last season, Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m) is playing up-front as an out-of-position FPL midfielder and new signing Eberechi Eze (£6.0m) impressed me when he came on for a nine-minute cameo. 

But I am making sure I remember this: all of my potential moves will be on hold until after midweek action. The last thing I want is to use a transfer, only to see someone else in my squad injured in the EFL Cup or Europa League.

    Forger about the 'glamour' new signings Chelsea made. Ngolo Kante is still by far their best player. Machine.

      B. Foden is too uncertain. But, if possible, try to find an extra 1m.

  4. Cert

    James (44) - 3
    Jorginho (43) - 2
    Trossard (35) - 1

    No one else close. James well on his way to becoming an FPL 2020/2021 legend

          Do I play Soucek or James this week!?!

          1. Eightball
            9 days, 6 hours ago

            I've got both and don't fancy James vs pool. Soucek for me I think.

    2. Greasy Grealish Gang

      Well played!

  7. TAT
    • 2 Years
    9 days, 7 hours ago

    Safe to say I need to WC this lot, right? Havertz, Vinagre, McCarthy, Davies etc. need to go.

    McCarthy
    TAA - Davies - Ayling
    Soucek - Havertz - ASM - Aubameyang - Salah
    Ings - Werner
    (Button - Mitchell - Vinagre - Vassiliev)

    1. Chilli Heatwave
      • 2 Years
      9 days, 7 hours ago

      Would not say a wc is needed.

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 7 hours ago

        There's a lot of issues in this team though…

    2. BoomXhakaLaca1
      • 7 Years
      9 days, 7 hours ago

      You definitely don't

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 7 hours ago

        Don't like the look of this team for the upcoming GWs. Feels like I made a mistake with several of these picks.

        1. Utopsis
          9 days, 6 hours ago

          You only feel like you made a mistake because a lot of your players blanked - the reality is it's impossible for any player/team to deliver every week. Impossible.

          So be more patient.

          1. TAT
            • 2 Years
            9 days, 6 hours ago

            Obviously it's impossible for any player to deliver. But I feel like I made mistakes I should have avoided in the first place – such as Vinagre, who was at risk of not starting anyway.

            1. Utopsis
              9 days, 6 hours ago

              Seems you've made your mind up - you're not really listening to any advice on here so crack on

              1. TAT
                • 2 Years
                9 days, 5 hours ago

                Right now –after having looked at potential moves, I'm between taking a -8 or the WC. -8 looks a bit much at this point, so WC is looking the most likely solution.

    3. The Gambler.
      • 10 Years
      9 days, 7 hours ago

      Why?

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 7 hours ago

        Well, for one, Vinagre won't play, Davies and Spurs looks an avoid, Havertz didn't look the player he's been in the Bundesliga, and no United assets in place for next GW. Why wait?

    4. Cert
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 7 hours ago

      No way it’s only Havertz that’s bad and u can either get someone else or stick with him

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 6 hours ago

        Difficult to stick after that game. No easy way to get a United mid for him either…

        1. Cert
          • 1 Year
          9 days, 6 hours ago

          If u have 1m itb u can get rashford who looked good in recent friendly

          1. TAT
            • 2 Years
            9 days, 6 hours ago

            Don't have 1m unfortunately…

    5. Joey Barton and Friends
      • 9 Years
      9 days, 7 hours ago

      To what?

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 6 hours ago

        Another playing GK to avoid having Soton defence, Davies to a better 5.0 option, Soucek downgrade for bench, Havertz to United or Everton mid, Vinagre to a playing 4.5, etc.

    6. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      9 days, 6 hours ago

      Jeez, calm down.

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 6 hours ago

        Lot's of issues in this team already. Don't like taking hits, so WC looks a viable option.

        1. Jeremy Corbyn
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          9 days, 6 hours ago

          WC is the stupidest move you can make at this stage with this team

          1. TAT
            • 2 Years
            9 days, 6 hours ago

            How so?

    7. BuYaKasha
      • 9 Years
      9 days, 6 hours ago

      Chill man

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 6 hours ago

        Wish I could. Vinagre not playing is worrying (need another playing 4.5). Havertz didn't look settled, Davies could be another 5.0, etc.

        1. Tallahassee
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          9 days, 6 hours ago

          It’s been one week. The exact opposite could happen in the next. Do 1 transfer only.

          1. TAT
            • 2 Years
            9 days, 6 hours ago

            For some of these players, sure but it's worrying having to already have to make transfers in defence (Vinagre), and Chelsea didn't look promising (same with Spurs).

            1. Tallahassee
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              9 days, 6 hours ago

              Chelsea lost 4-0 in opening game last season. I had 2 in my squad by week 3. Take out Vinagre and leave it !

              1. TAT
                • 2 Years
                9 days, 6 hours ago

                And don't have any United assets? That's really putting the team at a disadvantage I think, as most managers will have one or two of them.

                1. FPL_Cot
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  8 days, 18 hours ago

                  I'm a bit late to this party, but you dont need a wildcard imo. Palace looked solid so not as easy for United as everyone thinks. Havertz maybe to Hames is what I'd look at, but I didnt watch the Chels game so don;t know how bad he was. I would hold off until after the mid-week EFL/Europa games. Keep the extra cash then look to reinvest after a couple more weeks. Patience is the key.

                  1. TAT
                    • 2 Years
                    8 days, 17 hours ago

                    I fully expect Palace to be a tricky fixture, but going into that game "United-less" feels too risky given the ownership – so WC or not, I need to get one of them in. If not WC-ing, there are two options, i think:

                    - Havert+Ings > Fernandes+DCL for a hit (have exact cash) – or:
                    - Ings > Martial (FT). I would have Vinagre, Davies etc. to worry about still though…

    8. edfiasco
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Do not need to WC

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 6 hours ago

        It certainly feels like I need to. Not confident this team will deliver enough points.

    9. stat sifter 888888
      9 days, 6 hours ago

      Will you regret doing it more than not doing it?

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 6 hours ago

        I will regret *not* doing it more, I think.

        1. Eightball
          9 days, 5 hours ago

          Team looks fine. Havertz to someone maybe worth doing but it's been 1 game. Plenty of people in his price bracket that could be worth getting (James/Greenwood/Willian etc etc).

          Or just do Vinagre to Ayling/Taylor. Give Havertz another week and then move him on after that.

          I wouldn't move McCarthy on. He has good fixtures and for a 4.5 keeper will be good value.

          You will regret not having a wildcard all year with Covid still going on. It has the potential to utterly ruin your squad.

          1. TAT
            • 2 Years
            9 days, 4 hours ago

            Already own Ayling, but Taylor might be worth replacing Vinagre for.

            Martial has been my priority all along, but with Havertz and Vinagre now issues, the hits are likely to pile up unless not wildcarding. As for not having a wildcard available further down the line, that's my main worry. It will be a tricky season in many ways.

      Sky sports interviewed him after the game. His leg was strapped up.
      He said he took a knock when he won the penalty.
      When asked if he would be fit for the Liverpool game, he said yes.

    Havertz reminds me of Ali..

      Imagine having both of them

    When will we see the first price changes ?

    Vardy and "luck" isn't a thing anymore. It's just what he does.

    1. baps hunter

      There was a point last season when his "luck" ended and he became bad fantasy asset.

    Selling Werner for Martial is a casual move. Take a look at who he's facing in GW3

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      9 days, 7 hours ago

      Reverse it back again

      1. COK3Y5MURF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 days, 6 hours ago

        I don't even think Martial's ceiling is that high after watching Palace. Would much rather captain Auba. Plus I have other moves already penciled in for GW3 like Auba to KDB/Sterling. The aggressive moves are fine, but it depends on your team and there are limits to how many you can do

      GW2 fixture is even more promising to be honest. Liverpool high line is perfect for him.

      1. COK3Y5MURF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 days, 6 hours ago

        Indeed. Plus VVD is the new Dutch Maguire 😉

    Bowen to kilch?
    Or bench bowen and play Adams against Tottenham?

    1. hotine
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 6 hours ago

      Play Adams if I were you. He could easily get a goal

  17. Rinseboy

    Think Im gonna do Alli and Havertz to Rodriguez and Rashford for a -4?
    Any better moves this week?

    Mccarthy
    Dier Justin TAA
    Salah Auba Havetz Alli Soucek
    Adams Werner

      Good move

      Knee jerk, jold

    3. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 days, 6 hours ago

      Considering the same but don't really want to take a hit

  18. Little Red Lacazette
    • 3 Years

    All set for GW2?

    McCarthy
    TAA Justin KWP
    Salah Auba(C) Bruno(V) ASM
    Werner Wilson Mitro

    Nyland Bissouma Mitchell Vinagre

    Obviously not the best start and Bowen punt did not look great, Havertz looked awful Also.

    MCCarthy
    TAA Shaw Davies
    Havertz Alli Auba Bowen
    Martial DCL Werner

    Burton, Justin (BUR) (Mitchell, 4.5)

    0.5 itb, 1 FT.

    Who is the Most pressing issue or can I get away playing Alli, Bowen Havertz another week?

    I dont like hits after a week tho.

    Thoughts???

    Who needs to go first?
    A) Vinagre
    B) Alli
    C) Mitrovic

    Who is the better Everton player to own DCL or James?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 6 hours ago

      DCL was cack aside from that one incredible header from a set piece. James was class from minute 1, if he has pens he’s a no brainer

    A) Ings -> Martial
    B) Havertz -> James Rodriguez

    1. jimmy.floyd
      • 4 Years

      A

    2. chudbond007
      • 4 Years

      A. Just done same myself

  27. Berbs
    • 10 Years
    9 days, 7 hours ago

    Early days but not impressed by that many players in GW1

    Saiss, Salah, Harrison, Podence probably the standouts.

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 6 hours ago

      Saiss could have had a hatty.

      1. Berbs
        • 10 Years
        9 days, 6 hours ago

        Yep was pretty surprised to be honest. Impressive

    2. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 6 hours ago

      James and Soucek grabbed my attention

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 days, 6 hours ago

        James from chelsea and James from Everton

    3. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 6 hours ago

      Salah, Saiss, Jimenez, Digne are the standouts for me

  28. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    9 days, 6 hours ago

    57 points all out. Obviously not thrilled with that but could have been worse. Now to avoid using my FT. Want to roll with my team unchanged for GW2 and then reassess.

  29. Qaiss
    • 4 Years
    9 days, 6 hours ago

    Are people forgetting about Grealish?

    1. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 6 hours ago

      Yeah having a proper striker should help him a lot, I agree he is potentially a great option.

    2. Greasy Grealish Gang
      • 1 Year

      Shhhh! Don't remind them!

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Wow that’s a save ft for sure

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 6 hours ago

        Very unlikely that any of those teams will play first choice players. Maybe Spurs might play a few but I doubt it.
