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?

      On my wc, which one of Salah and KDB should I pick and why?

        I think both on a WC

        1. Ings_is_the_king
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Ok, do you not think I need a ManU midfielder too, though? It may destroy my squad balance

          Really difficult to say without seeing the rest of your team mate...

          1. Ings_is_the_king
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Ok. Here it is:
              Ryan
              TAA, Coleman, Saiss, Justin, Mitchell
              Bruno, Salah/KDB, James, Podence, Bissouma
              Werner, Martial, DCL

                  Have you wildcarded?

                      2 months, 15 days ago

                      Yes - don't judge.

                    Ditch Bruno, keep both

                        2 months, 15 days ago

                        Fair enough, but it would mean downgrading Werner to Jimenez.

                • Vazza
                    2 months, 15 days ago

                    They are both good picks. Flip a coin?

                    1. Ings_is_the_king
                        2 months, 15 days ago

                        I might have to! Salah looked really good last game and he is playing Kepa

                        1. Vazza
                            2 months, 15 days ago

                              Hi guys, how much importance do you assign to a £0.1 this early on?

                              Would you spend an FT on a player that you didn't intend to transfer out (Son in my instance) to avoid the drop in price? I am considering playing the WC ahead of GW3 if that has an impact on the decision.

                              1. Ask Yourself

                                I’m in this position but I’ll have to take a hit ffs. I’ll have a think about this, hopefully I get another night to mull it over

                                2 months, 15 days ago

                                Why not then?

                                  2 months, 15 days ago

                                  Because I also have Havertz in the squad. It is either Son 》 James or Kai 》 James

                                  1. Indpush
                                    • 2 Years

                                    I'm keeping Kai.

                                Imo losing 0.1 is a big issue this early on - spurs look wrong, have just made the son transfer out myself. Will sit and wait on them a month.

                              Think Vinagre will stay at 4.5 until Saturday? Good chance?

                                Don't think so

                                Just checking, but there is no actual confirmation that JRod is on pens for Everton? Richarlison has scored a pen in the Copa America and has been there for 2 years.

                                Everton Fans, how much football do you think Siggy will get this season? Would you expect Rodríguez to be on Pens when he is not on the pitch?

                                  Siggy is sh.t on pens. He won't take any even if he's on pitch. Ancelotti must be getting James or DCL on it IMO

                                      No one from Everton.

                                  We had 1 penalty last season. Siggy took it.

                                  But if he’s not starting regularly then Who knows?
                                  I expect James or Richarlison will be at the front of the queue.

                                Do we think Jose may start rotating Doherty with Aurier in the league?
                                Especially with Spurs tight schedule

                                  no. Aurier in cups if still at spurs

                                2. Flaming Flamingo

                                  Definitely a possibility. Aurier will play some games, be it in the league or cup

                                    You should know. You’re the club captain. Jokes aside, I think there could be some degree of rotation - it’s difficult to tell really

                                  How’s this looking?
                                  Could go Rash + Martial instead of Fernandes + Richarlison

                                    I like it minus Mitro

                                  Final touches on my WC... which combo do you prefer?

                                  A) 4.5 mid (Alzate) & Chris Wood
                                  B) Podence & Brewster

                                  If B, I could use extra 1m to upgrade defence... like 4m def > Egan/Saiss for example.

                                      Neither if I’m honest, Podence won’t be nailed, have you already got ASM?

                                          Not nailed? Maybe not, but rested tonight with the big guns is a good sign?

                                          For 5.5, can afford the ofd 20/30 minute cameo?

                                      So FPL stats now predicted the Manchester players won’t rise. Is this just an update to their algorithm (a guess) or do they have insider info?

                                        Massive drop tbh, weird. They've probably tweaked something. May not be the real story & they may have to make tweaks to trial out accuracy improvements.

                                        They've predicted Bruno, kdb and gabriel to go up for the past two nights so think it's an update to the algorithm.

                                        Probably quite tricky to get it right in the first couple weeks

                                        Maybe can’t rise as not played yet

                                        I think WCs might be making it hard to predict. It normally has a few weeks to work it out.

                                        Net transfers or more weight to either transfer in or out

                                        Form, injury?

                                      Would you wildcard this team?
                                      I am not at all happy with my team.
                                      Ryan, Walton
                                      TAA, Davies, KWP, Vinagre, Mitchell
                                      Auba, Salah, ASM, Son, Bissouma
                                      Werner, Adams, Antonio

                                      -First of all i dont like the dubble up on Brightons keepers as a goalkeeper. Bissouma is my fifth midfielder and would like Trossard. Also looking into getting Lamptey in the future.
                                      -Vinagre lost his spot.
                                      -Spurs double up with Davies and Son. Only reason was good fixtures but i rather own some other good player for the money Son costs and Davies probably gonna lose his spot to Reguilon.
                                      -ASM to far out on the wing and is not effective at all.
                                      -Werner up against Liverpool and is flagged.
                                      -Antonio was the player to take out anyway due to the fixtures.
                                      - Che Adams and KWP might not even start since poor performance in the first match+ in the cup.

                                      Wildcard team would be.

                                      Martinez (Steer)
                                      TAA, Digne, Saiss, Shaw, (Mitchell)
                                      Auba, Salah, Trossard, James, (Bissouma)
                                      Martial, Richarlison
                                      and 0,5 itb

                                      Can then switch Auba to KDB next GW.
                                      Then if i want i can easily downgrade Digne to get in one of the Chelsea guys or a straight switch Richarlison to Jimenez.

                                      So what do you think, sensible or craziness?

                                        Do what you feel is right mate!! I had a similar team and have Wildcarded even tho my plan was to play a more patient game this year and my defence especially had good rotating fixtures for a long period of time, but as I did last season I’ve used the wildcard in gameweek 2!! My team was...
                                        McCarthy
                                        TAA Egan Saïss KWP Lascelles
                                        Salah Aubameyang Son ASM Bissouma
                                        Werner Adams Wilson
                                        And currently I’m on...
                                        Martinez Steer
                                        TAA Digne Saiss Lewis Ferguson
                                        Aubameyang(Salah GW3) Bruno James-Rod Harrison Podence
                                        Martial DCL Wilson
                                        Have 1.0 in the bank for flexibility

                                            This week yes mate, there’s 1.0 in the bank so could do Bruno to Sterling after Bruno plays Brighton as I’d imagine KDB will definitely have gone up by then, or anther option is to use the Aubameyang slot to move between Salah, KDB, Sterling and Mané each week and captain them whoever I think has the best fixture and keep Bruno all season

                                        wc not necessary..gradual changes and get the players you want with week to week matchup based strategy..you can do it! maybe:
                                        roll over tf this week then week 3 -4
                                        -4 following with 2 more..etc

                                          Thanks for you're answers guys. I feel like my current team can't score big points this GW. This is a really hard decision for me.

                                        I just think that this early in the season, there will be another series of must have players after the next gameweek. The players in your GW1 team aren’t bad players, many just didn’t return decent points. GW2 those same players could well return handsomely.

                                        Just take a -4 if you need to and reassess next week would be my advice. But it’s your team of course.

                                      Barely seen Mitro in a team on here today, has he just magically vanished from everyone’s squads?

                                      And do we expect him starting back up top this weekend?

                                        Seriously considering no Trent but it's a huge risk

                                          Fairly easy to transfer him in if it goes south

                                          Yes, he has to go for me soon.

                                        So what’s your prediction for Bale’s price? And will he be a success at Spurs?

                                          10.5 or 11? He’ll do well but Mou has broken spurs so I’m steering well away

                                          I can't fathom why people would get rid of Trent.

                                          That is such short term thinking.

                                        So apparently Diogo Jota arrived with the rest of the team at Molineux tonight but then left soon after. Strange. Could be some personal issues, but I hope everything is fine with him.

                                          If Jota leaves Wolves then Podence at £5.5m becomes very interesting.

                                                That said, knowing my track record he's probably signing for a new team right now 🙂

                                                For 7.5 and 7.0 you get a return on average every week. They'll get at least 10 clean sheets, and they'll get at least 20 assists, and they'll get at least 5 goals.

                                                Fixture proof.

                                                You can change Rashford to whoever has nice fixtures.

                                                Just saw the Spurs team against Lokomotiv. So where are all those who were so confident that Mourinho will definitely rotate and play a weaker team??

                                                Kane, Son, Doh, Davies and Dier all played the full 90 minutes. Expect rotation this weekend.

                                                  Personally never thought they would be rotated - one leg EL games are important

                                                    Same here, wasn't the case for many who were absolutely sure after watching the documentary 😆

                                                    Really? Spurs are on zero points in the league. They struggle to beat teams with their team A, doubt they would want to risk it with their team B

                                                      I think it was more to do with a single leg KO round but the situation became severe after their loss to Everton.

                                                    If there is rotation, it'll be vs. Leyton Orient.

                                                    Who were the 8 1st team players that stayed at home?

                                                      Can you tell who they were? Certainly bulk of their 1st team players were on the pitch!

                                                            I would.

                                                          My captaincy option boils down to Aubameyang vs Salah.

                                                          Has to be Aubameyang this week doesn’t it?

                                                            Salah faces Kepa though

                                                            1. Oooof

                                                              I know what you mean with that, but I always favour the attacking player who is at home although not slavishly as there’s many exceptions.

                                                              Aubameyang seemed much less involved in dangerous areas against Fulham than Salah did versus Leeds last week.

                                                              Hmmm still not sure.

                                                            Yes.

                                                          Vardy rising quickly, love it

                                                          Son close to dropping today or tomorrow, Vinagre and Puli are extremely risky. If they don't drop before the deadline, they'll drop the day after, unfortunate

                                                            Puli worth keeping
