Why I’m lining up for FPL Gameweek 3 without any Chelsea players

A Fantasy Premier League veteran of 11 years, Darren Wiles has an incredible track record with three top 1k finishes in the last four seasons.


With so many favourable match-ups in Gameweek 3, I am feeling confident about the next round of Fantasy Premier League.

It has been a positive start thus far, anyway, with 80 and 90-point hauls in the first two Gameweeks taking me to a total of 170 and an overall rank of 29k.

The goals have been flying in so far and I have been lucky enough to capitalise on the early glut of double-digit returns. But all of that is in the past, and it’s what happens this weekend that matters now.

Here is what my team looks like for Gameweek 3 and the reasons behind some key decisions.

      Zaha’s fixtures are great. Half chance that he might be on pens too if Milojevic is not a starter.

    Martinez
    TAA | Saïss | James
    Salah | KDB | Son | Zaha | Podence
    Jiménez | Ings

    Forster | Mitchell | Dunne | Brewster

    Thoughts on this active WC... Where do I find 0.5 from? (currently over budget)

    1. Robson-Canoe
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      James to Taylor

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Yes I do like that, Taylor would be best of any of the 4.6/4.5s IMO.
        I may be overestimating the Chelsea def.

    2. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Why do you need 0.5? It looks fine to me

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        because I am 0.5 over.

    3. Third Eye Vision
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I think it’s wise to have a slightly better bench than this if on WC.

      1. Third Eye Vision
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Ings to Dominic and either get a 4.5 for the bench or just go Podence to Foden.

      2. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I have always ran a "cheaper" bench.

  3. Kloptimus Prime
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Which one?

    1. Digne and Klich
    2. James and foden

    1. MrCloppity

    How do I access the Captains Poll outcome?

  5. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Can you rank the 6.5-7.5 mids that are talismanic, on set pieces with good fixtures?

    A) Zaha
    B) Barnes
    C) Hamez
    D) Foden

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      A
      C
      B
      D

    2. Third Eye Vision
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      They are all excellent picks. Hard to split them. I’d say Zaha has the best fixtures. Foden might be an amazing pick given the current circumstances. Barnes has great stats from the first games. And I’m a bit in love with Mr Rodriguez (Everton fan).

    1) TAA + Sterling

    Or

    2) Robbo + Mane

    1. jc001
      • 3 Years

      1

    Question #1:
    A) Guaita & Forster
    B) Martinez & Steer

    If Forster wins his place back (fair sized maybe) rotation is surprisingly decent.

    Question #2:
    1) Guaita / TAA / Jimenez
    2) Martinez / Robertson / Werner
    3) Other

    1. FlockofSeagulls
      • 4 Years

      Why would Forster be ahead of Gunn?

  9. pundit of punts
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Surprised no one is going for Mahrez

    He sores just 29 points less than Sterling last season by playing 717 fewer minutes.

    He’s nailed now as well.

    1. jc001
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Torres? Where does he play?

  10. RohanVaswani
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Martinez Justin

    Or

    Mendy Wolves 5.0?

    This is for gw4 and onwards

    1. jc001
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Option 2

  11. MagicMessi
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Lads Captain Kane or Steri

  12. Do I Not Like Orange
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Any changes need to this WC team or GTG?

    Martinez Forster
    TAA Robbo Saiss Lamptey Mitchell
    Son KDB JRod Foden Burke
    Mitro Jimmy Werner

  13. Grounderz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Podence or Foden?

    Have Jim, KDB and Raz.

    1. 1nonly
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Foden

      Podence in competition with Traore

  14. 1nonly
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 2 months ago

    On WC which one would you choose?

    Option 1
    Martinez (Forster)
    TAA Saïss Taylor (Lamptey Justin)
    KDB Mo Son Rodríguez Podence
    Werner Mitrovic (Brewster)

    Option 2
    Martinez (Forster)
    Robbo Saïss Taylor (Lamptey Justin)
    KDB Mo Rodríguez Foden (Stephen)
    Werner Mitrovic Jiménez

    DCL overrated. Do not expect returns from him this week.

    1. Jebiga
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Lol.
      Whole team playing for him

  16. FPL Joker

    Price rises do my nut in. I’m 0.2 short of my ideal team and I can’t shift anyone out.

    1. CAVEAT KING
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Risk and reward bud.
      I transfer early; against all advice.
      In the last 2 years it has gone wrong and in that time it has probably added up in 10 mil price gains.

  17. Jebiga
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Start dunne or lamptey this gw?

  18. Taegugk Warrior
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    James, Taylor, or Lamptey...?

  19. Kristobal

    Any Wolves supporter (or anyone) know anything about Marcals injury? How long can he be sidelined for?
