The best way to bounce back from a poor start to the FPL season in Gameweek 2

“Run the risk. If it works out, happiness. If not, wisdom” – Unknown

So then, one Gameweek into the new season and Fantasy Premier League managers already have big decisions to make.

For me, rolling the dice and going without Mohamed Salah (£12.0m) fell flat on its face. It would be naïve to think I was unlucky and those who owned the Egyptian were lucky ‘because penalties’ – FPL is not as black-and-white as all that. I think it was quite the opposite, to be honest. The quote above tells us one thing. If you don’t learn from your mistakes, you don’t gain ‘wisdom’.

I have a sneaky feeling that the Salah of 2017/18 is back. I haven’t seen him this sharp and fit for a long, long time and that it is why it is dangerous to have ‘pre-conceived’ notions in this extremely dynamic game. 

I have spoken a lot about ‘Upside Chasing’ and ‘Big Hitter Switching’ this season but I’ve also spoken a lot about ‘Adapting’. And when Salah puts in a performance such as he did against Leeds, you pay attention. You adapt. You re-align your thinking. 

We’re not talking about any old FPL asset here. We’re talking about someone who finished in the top two overall Fantasy scorers over the last three years and has a proven ceiling of 300 FPL points (which was achieved largely without penalties). 

Salah was struggling with an injury last season and I have a feeling Jurgen Klopp was playing him through it because there was a historic title on the line. It seems like he is over it now. 

Now, I am not going to buy him this Gameweek BUT I am not going to go without Salah for a long time and am working towards a plan to get him. 

He’s fit. He’s sharp. He looks hungry. Liverpool are due some penalties. He’s got increased assist threat. 

Being stubborn will not make you a good FPL player. You have to respond to what you see on that television screen. I wouldn’t stick to a pre-determined plan of chasing fixtures by selling Salah if you had such a plan. In Gameweek 2, he’s facing Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.0m) for what it’s worth. His troubles between the sticks are well-documented, most recently by David in this match report of Chelsea’s win at Brighton. Shooting on sight might be enough for Salah

For those that got off to a bad start like me (43 points), don’t worry about it too much. I always said Gameweek 1 was somewhat of a shot in the dark with more unknowns than any round of the season. It is how you respond beyond Gameweek 1 that makes you a good FPL manager. 

But, just a word of warning before we draw any drastic conclusions. We only have one week of data so far this season. We don’t know what the norm is yet, meaning we don’t know which match events are the anomalies either. 

If, like me, you went all-in against Salah, don’t forget that you knew the risks and the opposition had a really good hand (not a lucky one but a good one) that came through. You learn from it and move on. The key is that you do learn from it. This is a game of temperament that you need to hold for a season. 

There are a few other things worth mentioning about Gameweek 1 that I’ll take you through. There’s no structure here. Just think of it as me writing in my diary.

We need to talk about Raúl Jiménez (£8.5m). There are so many new ‘toys’ in the market when it comes to exciting, explosive strikers that we might tend to overlook the old, dusty pack of Uno cards which have never really given us a ‘laugh-riot’ game night but it’s never been boring either. 

There is not much to think about here. Jiménez has been reliable for two seasons now. Yes, he slowed down at the back-end of Project Restart but still scored a steady four goals in that run. And it looks like Nuno has decided to go ‘sexier’ with his team this season. They looked more formidable in attack at Sheffield United, Jiménez looked incredibly sharp and it seemed like they created more than they usually do. 

This did have a little bit of an effect on Wolves’ defence though and I thought they looked more open at the back than usual. As it was Sheffield United, they went largely unpunished. The upcoming fixtures pit Nuno’s men against Manchester City (home), West Ham (away), Fulham (home), Leeds (away), Newcastle (home) and Crystal Palace (home). It certainly looks like a night of Uno that’s going to be more fun than usual without the unnecessary disruption of European Football.

How Spurs and Everton's new signings fared in their FPL Gameweek 1 debuts

Remember that year in school when one of the less popular kids came back a changed person one summer before suddenly became a changed person one summer. Over the holidays he went home bought the best gym equipment, went on a shopping spree with a good stylist and became a cool kid virtually overnight. Well, in the Premier League this season, that kid is Everton. 

Everything you knew about them last year is irrelevant. Yes, a certain Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.1m) was a troll during Project Restart and went on a horrible run. But that kid named Everton accompanied by their suave new stylist Carlo Ancelotti went shopping and bought a completely new wardrobe (read midfield) and you now need to view this team completely differently. 

Out of nowhere, the Toffees look creatively competent. Having players who can switch the side of play so easily instead of others that are incapable of making a single forward pass makes a difference I guess. Add to that, they have one of the best ball-winners in Europe protecting that back-line in Allan (£5.5m). The team deserves our attention at both ends of the pitch and you must erase every bad memory you had with this kid last year when he trolled you no end.

Elsewhere, a pair of 4.5m defenders are already standing out to me as the pick of the lot. I’ve got Tariq Lamptey (£4.5m) and Luke Ayling (£4.5m) on my watchlist for this price bracket. 

Lamptey, in particular, has immense potential. Brighton looked very encouraging against Chelsea, with Graham Potter instructing much of his team’s offensive play to travel through the full-backs. Lamptey showed us what he can do last season with an impressive performance against Liverpool and seems proficient in creating chances with great reliability.

Someday, we might even get to purchase a nailed-on defender from Arsenal at £4.5m or below. Now that the Gunners are much more solid at the back, I will be keeping close tabs on William Saliba (£4.4m) and Rob Holding (£4.5m) to see who emerges as the better option long-term. It is worth noting that Arsenal’s fixtures don’t become incredibly appealing until Gameweek 8, so we do have time to judge them, which is helpful.

After a major captaincy-fail last week, I really hope this week is easier on me. I am currently having a major heart versus head debate as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m) seems like the obvious captaincy pick, but I also happen to be a Manchester United fan. I know the Arsenal man has an easier fixture, based on the defensive prowess (or lack thereof) displayed by West Ham last season and in Gameweek 1 but I also own Anthony Martial (£9.0m) and Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m).

My co-host Zophar told me on this week’s episode of The FPL Wire that West Ham made Steve Bruce’s Newcastle look like prime Barcelona on Saturday evening. I trust his opinion and that has me worried about how much damage Aubameyang can do in Gameweek 2. That said, Manchester United were really effective going forward last season once Fernandes joined the team and Paul Pogba (£8.0m) was fit.

So, with all that to consider, I haven’t yet made up my mind about my next captaincy decision. Traditionally I always like captaining a Manchester United player in the first good home game of the season. And we do play this game for fun, right?

    Never wildcarded this early but this season feels different. GW1 punts didn’t come off. Would seriously appreciate your comments on this team. Cheers.

    Pickford Steer
    Saiss Mitchell Justin VVD Holding
    Aubameyang. Bruno DeBruyne Trossard Soucek

      Money is spread far too wide

      Focus more on as strong a first 11 as possible and a cheap but playing bench

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Actually maybe I’m wrong

        But Watkins and Bamford isn’t for me

      Looks like a problem defence in the making in a few weeks. You happy to make 4.5 changes? Mitchell and Justin gone leaving you with Holding.

      Very much doubt Pickford is value - put 0.5 anyway into defence and get an Egan say.

      Watkins to play veery week? Bold.

      Trossard I quite like but it's Potter. I'd go Grealish from somewhere. That allows you to ditch Watkins who is a complete unknown. Grealish will be good by himself but he will also get a good share of Watkins returns possibly.

      Duznt seem balanced atal if I'm honest for a wildcard it ain't great, atm I don't thank Watkins, Bamford and trossard are good picks

    Tottenham are just awful aren’t they. Don’t think Bale in this period of his football career can do much to turn that around.

      Their backup GK is as bad 😀

      I know what they'll do about it. Sign another Midfielder ....

      1. UnitedFan
        • 5 Years

        They've signed Mendy.

      As soon as Mendy comes and his quarantine period is over he will take over

      1. Amey

        A normal GK in quarantine is better than healthy Kepa !

    When should we know how nailed is James at Chelsea?

    1. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2-3 games after Chilwell is back.

      1. Atimis
        • 4 Years

        Tempted by Vinagre to James before GW3

    Could I get a good old RMWCT please ? Any ideas on how to improve the squad ?

      You have to downgrade one of the mids/fwds and upgrade def

        ^this

    2. TheDragon
      • 2 Years

      I like it but the ‘issue’ is how to get Chelsea players in from GW3

      Presume Auba becomes KDB in GW3?

      1. Laserface
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Yes. And Salah becomes a 7-8m mid in a few weeks. Will use the money to upgrade the defence

        1. Tempestic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          When? U'll want him back a week or so after

    3. Pariße
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Defence a bit too week for a WC team. There’s also much more value in Rashford than Martial for me, Werner also a better option. Maybe even a cheap striker could do so you can invest in that defence of yours, bottom table defenders won’t be getting you too many clean sheets.

    Vinagre playing tonight -- anything we can read into that?

    1. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      He won't start Monday?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        haha ok I just realised we can't read anything into it. The rest of the first team defence played

    2. Teror
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Yes. He's a back up option who'll play the unimportant games.

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Oh just like the rest of the defence that played tonight? Saiss, Coady and Boly all back ups?

        1. TMERC187
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Sarcasm? Teror was helping you out. Marcal is the starter but keep Vinagre if you like.

  8. Will J 256
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    How does this sound?
    Alli and Ben Davies to James Rodriguez and Saiss (-4) bench pulisic?

    1. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Don’t need a hit, just the Alli move is ok

    2. TheDragon
      • 2 Years

      Saiss plays Man City this week....

      1. Will J 256

        Thanks guys!

    3. Pariße
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Essentially what you’re doing is Davies to Saiss for a hit, one plays Southampton and the other Man City. This is an awful idea.

    4. chaser123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Davies is a wait and see I think

        Blames for when someone gives bad advice.
        Names for what you are going to call them.
        Frames for when they try to make out it's someone else's fault.

        Some already started using JRod, apparently the original JRod didnt become enough of a fpl legend to keep it 🙁

      7. Hakim Ziyech

        James Bond for Rodríguez

        It is accepted by higher society that James Rodríguez is JamRod

    2. Wılly
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      1. Use a FT on Pulisic to Rodriguez

      2. Hit to bring in Digne & Fernandes for TAA & Pulisic

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        dont lose TAA... you'll want him back pretty soon

        1. Wılly
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Could potentially bring him back in (or after) GW4 for Robertson as I'll get either 0.4/0.5 from downgrading Auba to KDB.
          Does that help?

        Not bad at all. I'd get a Leeds instead of Lamptey but he's a fun call too.

        Think the Everton call is ambitious. Digne with fewer set pieces is less likely value is my guess despite week 1. James is an unknown in FPL and Rich overpriced imo. Get 1, possibly 2 but all 3 is very all in on the basis of half a good match.

        Just turn Rich into Jim and forest any transfers up top for the foreseeable, That allows you to play around with those mid priced mids. Those are the ones to be trying to hit.

        Wilson up .1.

        Unless I’m missing something you’re either short by .1 or brought in everyone who’s gone up .1 & spent .4 elsewhere?

        1. International Richard
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Take it back. Thinking of DCL

      4. Robman
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Great move in my opinion - I got rid of Havertz and Ings for Bruno and Wilson for a -4 with exact cash. Shame to take a hit so early in the season (swore I would conserve transfers this season), but could turn down chance to move Havertz on and I liked the amount of ball Wilson was getting in an attacking Newcastle team. I have ASM too, so maybe a bit Newcastle heavy, but their fixtures are good.

      In other news, Dale Stephens has just gone off injured for Brighton.

      Owned by 12.9% as £4.5m 5th midfielder.

        Brighton down to 10 men as have used all subs but 4-0 up with only a few minutes left.

      Kane no longer due... Son massively due...

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I never understood this. Why is anyone due after not scoring? It's not like it's a poo that if u go on long enough without doing it'll come eventually.

        2 months, 18 days ago

        Hi guys. Have made my free transfer already, but still have Pulisic which is frustrating. Should I take a hit or just hope Pulisic is fit? 0.4 ITB

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Who will u get?

          1. Will J 256
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 18 days ago

            I don’t really know to be honest. Little bit unsure. Shall I bench him and play a 4-4-2?

            1. Zim0
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              Might as well keep and start then if you're not sure. He scored and assisted last time he came on as a sub against liverpool. Do u plan to get him back again once he's fit? I wouldn't get rid for a hit if that's the case

              1. Will J 256
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 18 days ago

                I probably would want him longer term to be honest, so maybe a hit isn’t the best idea after all.

                1. Zim0
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  You could wait for lampards press conference. I don't know when that is. Maybe he mentions something. If it seems like he's out for a long time then do get rid. Also if u do start him don't forget to set up your bench properly. Good luck!
