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.

    Only saw a bit of the second half last night, was Havertz really that bad? By comments on here he had a shocker.

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years

      Yeah he looked lightweight and slow, probably just unfit hopefully

    2. The 12th Man

      Wasn’t great.
      Just needs to settle in.

      Lamps (obvs) said he did well, with the cash invested it’s to be expected, but that speaks volumes- he’ll play and likely be better positioned next fixture imo

        What happens if he's benched against Liverpool?

        1. mynameisq

          That'll be his last chance gone

            It's really hard with Havertz... Even if he does nothing against Liverpool, he is then looking at wba CPL SOU. Really hard to sell for those.

          I will suck it up, want two trades next week for free

      I didn't see (or listen to) the match but I read some of the player ratings from the papers. They weren't half as critical as some of the comments on here. Definitely a wait and see.

  2. L'Aeroplanino

    Trossard a good option?

  4. Strchld

    Decided to let Alli go. Spurs looked so awful.

    Greenwood or JRod in?

    1. L'Aeroplanino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      good fixtures short term for both but Sancho could be around the corner?

    I hit the button even with a score of 80. Not a lot of data but with price volatility and 5 or 6 players I didn’t like (McCarthy, Vinagre, Adams, Ings, TAA, Pereira), I thought why not, I’ve gone with:

    Ryan | Walton
    Digne | Saiss | Shaw | Ayling | Ferguson
    Auba | Fernandes | Hamez | Klich | Bissouma
    Werner | Martial | Jiminez

    Thoughts guys?

    1. HVT

      Nice. DCL would be nice, but tough to get in

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        I don’t like DCL as a player, would want Rich but can’t have them all

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years

      Aubameyang to Kevin and Ryan to Guaita

    3. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      If it can get you ahead of the curve then why not.

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT

        Pens and gets forward a decent amount. Harrison only scored 6 in the championship last season. Thanks though

    1. Holmes

      If he continues to start, yes

  8. fr3d

    Is Brewster now unlikely to get a loan move?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I think if Sheffield United at goalless again at Villa Park on Monday they will increase their efforts

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Depends if Liverpool think they will need him for first team cover I guess.

    3. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I think they should keep him. Firmino has been appalling for a while now.

  9. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    On WC, Mitchell or Ferguson with an eye to Palace fixtures from GW5?

    1. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Ferguson

        2. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          No Chelsea?
          Also not cashing on Brewster starting at 4.5?

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Maybe later I’ll switch to a 3-5-2 if Brewster gets a move elsewhere

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Will bring in one of Pulisic, Havertz or Werner when they pick up a bit more form

            2. PogBruno
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

              At this stage, he is guaranteed to leave for a PL club and he could even be playing in the coming GW according to twitter...it could save you transfers imo if you already set 352 on WC

          whats the 1.5m for?
          I dont like Rich
          Are you playing this game without Salah?

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Salah will come in once the fixtures turn for Liverpool and I am regularly going to captain him otherwise he is too much at 12m if not cappping.

            Rich looked very dangerous for Everton and much better option than DCL to me, wanted to attack these next three Everton fixtures with the triple up.

            1.0m is contingency and doesn’t need to be spent. Perhaps should downgrade Soucek to a 4.5 to increase the in the bank sum.

          The way they play with players running into the box they’ll get pens - I agree tho he is a CM so he’ll not be in goal scoring positions all the time but he scored as many as Harrison last year and that’s with no VAR

          Klich is only deeper vs top sides, Bielsa will adjust position depending on the opponent, so I’m pretty sure he will play further forward next game

    Can anyone see any major problems, or should I just roll the FT?

    McCarthy
    TAA Doherty Justin
    JRod Salah Auba ASM Alli
    Werner Mitro

    Steer Vinagre Mitchell Davis

    Cheers!

      Alli not nailed and is not a good option even if he was

      1. Jackson99
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yeah he's my main concern but don't have any money ITB and don't particularly like any midfielders at that price point (maybe Zaha but tough fixture) so might save the FT and upgrade next week. Fingers crossed he at least starts!

    TAA + Havertz > Bruno + Saiss?

    Bit unorthodox but could work nicely.

    I'm considering the move in FanTeam where I have no obvious (c) seeing as I have Salah and Sterling.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Would you need to play Saiss this GW?

      1. HODGE
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        no

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yes unfortunately. Other bench options are Zouma and Vinagre...

        Zouma is a 4.5m in this game. Great value so far!

          Oh you’re talking about Fanteam? Then go for it but I don’t really understand the nuance of that game

    Anyone considering pope on WC or just far too expensive??

      0 interest.

    Kane and Son -> Martial and Bruno
    -4
    Worth it?

    1. HODGE
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      yes

    2. L'Aeroplanino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      No one here would advise so because it isn't logical to take a hit to get in MUN players before they have played. With that kind of moves I think you need to decide yourself

      1. HODGE
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        What a arrogant response you don't speak for everyone. I say yes GW1 is logically the best time to take a hit

    3. Piksau
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Martial on goals and assists through penalties won....
      Bruno on pens and assists...and bonus points possibilities....
      Yes definitely...if you have the cash set aside then can do Bruno now and Martial later or next GW as Bruno is expected to rise 0.1 today/tomorrow

  25. Wakanda

    Who for the next few GWS

    a) Pulisic, Werner, Ali
    b) Bruno, Richar, Barnes

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      B because at least they're starting

    2. HODGE
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      b easily

    3. Piksau
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      B....A cant even be called an option at this point

    Anybody have any idea when my name will come up in the FFS Head-to-Head league? After following all the instrucs in the H2H page, nothing is there. On my FPL Leagues page I have a (low) current rank, but I'd like to see who beat me!

    Hi guys, based on one GW, who do you think going to be a breakthrough and nailed 5.5 MF or below ?

    1. HODGE
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      No one stood out other than maybe Harrison

    2. Piksau
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      need data based on 3 more GWs....get better idea of rotation poissibilities

  29. kobewan

    Auba > KDB before KDB price spike up..

    1. HODGE
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Not before west ham could easily haul

    2. Hairy Potter
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Hold. Going to Sterling if you can't afford KDB next week may not be a bad thing.

      1. Siva Mohan
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        aren't Sterling and KDB same priced?

        1. kobewan
          1 month, 9 days ago

          11.5

        2. Big Hands Barry
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
