Learning from ‘The Great and The Good’ FPL managers – Gameweek 6

Fantasy Football Scout community writer Greyhead continues with his series of articles analysing the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) transfers and strategies of some noted Fantasy managers, from serial top 10k finishers to well-known faces.

The Great and The Good this year are the Scouts Joe LepperNeale RiggGeoff Dance and Tom Freeman, FPL Wire’s Zophar, from the Hall of Fame Fabio BorgesFPLMatthewYavuz Kabuk and Tom Stephenson, Blackbox’s Az and Mark Sutherns, FPL “celebrities” LTFPL AndyMagnus Carlsen and FPL General plus last year’s mini-league winner Les Caldwell.


“Cause the players gonna play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate.

Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake.

I shake it off, I shake it off”

Another week, another series of injury woes to deal with, as Patrick Bamford (£7.9m) fell victim to the mid-priced striker curse but at least Raphinha (£6.5m) managed to take Taylor Swift’s advice and shake it off.

This was also the week many lost patience in the £7-8m price bracket with several of us selling Ferran Torres (£7.0m) and Jack Grealish (£8.0m), as we saw the emergence of cheaper midfield options like Ismaila Sarr (£6.3m), Conor Gallagher (£5.7m) and Bukayo Saka (£6.2m).

Then there was the captaincy call, surely that was an easy one with Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) ready to go, but Dean Smith’s men played the villains at Old Trafford to deliver red arrows for many an FPL manager.

OVERALL PERFORMANCE

Tom Freeman and Les Caldwell were the chart toppers with 60 points this week, although Tom left it late with Joel Veltman’s (£4.4m) 95th minute assist taking him to the heights of the hit parade.

Les’ strong showing was based on a Wolves double-up and his Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) captaincy; he was in good company as Mark and Magnus were the others to walk like an Egyptian.

Az was a very brave boy putting the armband on Michail Antonio (£7.9m) and it paid off; he is now only two points behind his Blackbox buddy. Could he finally overtake him?

Geoff Dance deserves a mention as he has yet to have a red arrow, although the size of the climbs are getting smaller with a sub 4,000 place jump this time round.

Wildcards are still burning a hole in the majority of The Great and The Good’s pockets, there seems to have been no discernible advantage to those who played early and it’s worth noting that none of the top three of Tom Stephenson, Andy and FPL Matthew have overhauled their squads.

TRANSFERS

Sarr underlines differential potential as Chelsea earn another clean sheet 10

This is a summary of the transfers for this week:

Az – Sarr (Grealish)

LTFPL Andy – Jimenez (Bamford)

Fabio Borges – None

Joe Lepper – Sarr, Armstrong (Bamford, Traore)

Geoff Dance – Gallagher (Torres)

FPL General – Saint-Maximin, Sarr (Bamford, Raphinha)

Les Caldwell – Gallagher (Torres)

Magnus Carlsen – Foster (Gunn)

Mark Sutherns – Alonso (Ayling)

FPL Matthew – Sarr (Greenwood)

Neale Rigg – None

Tom Freeman – Sarr (Gundogan)

Tom Stephenson – Sarr (Torres)

Yavuz Kabuk – Lukaku, Gray (Calvert-Lewin, Grealish)

Zophar – Sarr (Torres)

A blur of activity with Sarr a popular and wise choice if his goal against Newcastle was a sign of returns to come.

Joe and FPL General took hits to bring in the Watford wonder as they also had the Bamford blip to deal with, both made eyebrow raising moves with Allan Saint-Maximin (£6.8m) and Adam Armstrong (£6.0m) trotting onto their respective fantasy fields.

Yavuz’s dealings also caught the eye as he is the first to hit the high rollers with the “threemium” of Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m), Ronaldo and Salah.

I suspect Magnus will be soon going that way with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£9.9m) a placeholder, but I’ve tried and failed before to predict the Grandmaster’s groves.

TEMPLATE

Salah on target as Liverpool assets prosper at Leeds 1

The template for The Great and The Good is as follows with the number in brackets showing how many teams in which they appear:

Sanchez (12), Steele (8)

Alexander-Arnold (15), Shaw (12), Ayling (7), Livramento (7), Veltman (5)

Salah (15), Raphinha (11), Sarr (9), Jota (9), Benrahma (8)

Antonio (14), Ronaldo (12), Lukaku (4)

You sense bigger change is coming to the template, but for now Sarr and Lukaku were the new entrants replacing Bamford due to injury and Mason Greenwood (£7.7m), who proved expendable despite hitting an impressive eight shots against Villa.

CAPTAIN CALLS

At this early stage, captaincy decisions are proving crucial in the respectability of your rank and Mark Sutherns leads the way with 126 points, which equates to an impressive 21-point average.

Fabio is having an uncharacteristically mediocre start to the armband action sitting on 88 points, his decision to move off his favourite Salah this week proved costly.

The chart below shows that Salah continues to be the popular pick over the season at 54% pick rate, Ronaldo is chipping away at that lead on 22% and I would suspect Lukaku will start to worry the leaders as his dream run of fixtures begins this weekend.

No doubt the heavy hitters have rewarded those who have stuck with the tried and tested in the opening weeks, but Az’s foray into differential choice Antonio shows there is ground to be made up if you look beyond the “threemium”.

CONCLUSION

Jimenez ends goal drought as Arsenal claim convincing north London derby win

An interesting week ahead with fixture swings on the horizon, with Chelsea’s mouth-watering matchups meaning heavy investment in the Tuchel Tombola.

The collapse of the mid-priced market and the rise of the cheaper options of Emile Smith-Rowe (£5.3m), Demarai Gray (£5.8m) and Sarr also means that more might be tempted with the three heavy hitter option as this becomes more manageable as we look to balance the books and unbalance our squad structure.

Plenty of options ahead, plenty of ways to play the game and catch those greens but remember if you do have a bad week then just shake it off as a good one can be just be around the corner.

Anyway, that’s all from me for now and remember: don’t have nightmares.

    Jota and Ayling to Raphinha and Rudiger for a hit?

      Seems ok

    What a win. What a performance. Passion, spirit, desire, fight, support. Best 34 minutes in Arteta's era without a doubt.

      Have ended up in an old forum? I’m sure Arsenal won a few days ago.

        Yeah it was lovely to see. I've watched the 1st half over again a few times. Can't bring myself to erase it from the DVR! The urgent transition play from defense to attack is what stood out to me. They were genuinely enjoying their football.

        Ah, I see, you boys are reminiscing. Fair enough. I think it was a great win for you but Spurs have become very rubbish. Basically, don’t get too carried away, but you’re right, you have improved.

          Loved every bit of it. My average three beers per game turned into seven! So good to see the kids turning up. Tomiyasu looks like such a great buy. White was super composed and calm. Xhaka for a change did not lose his cool. And Auba looked like a wanted to play again.

          It's the team spirit aspect of it that gets me going. Watching players applauding each other and encouraging one another tells me there's a strong unit there and good things can flow from that. Long may it last.

        MAN CITY TEAM v PSG (El Cashico)
        Starting XI: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Rodri, Mahrez, De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Grealish, Sterling.
        Subs: Steffen, Carson, Stones, Ake, Jesus, Torres, Fernandinho, Foden, McAtee, Wilson-Esbrand.

          Grealish the most important player for Pep along with KDB and Dias.

          Is Jesus benching in UCL good from an FPL perspective? Also Walker continuing to collect good minutes…

          1. CRO KLOPP
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            And Laporte also

            1. Thomas Magnum
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Definitely, I think I slightly like Walker better due to less competition for the spot but if Laporte continues to keep these minutes up he’ll make a real case for himself

              1. CRO KLOPP
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                He looks so dangerous on corners,5.6 mil I think

                1. Thomas Magnum
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 2 days ago

                  I have heard that he has looked dangerous at corners as well actually. He’s actually dropped to 5.5 now so the same price as Walker, plus he’s the lowest owned of the back 4 starting today so definitely very intriguing

                  1. CRO KLOPP
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 2 days ago

                    I wanted go with Laporte on gmwk 8 WC,but I think that you are right about Walker/Cancelo,they dont have competition atm

                    1. Thomas Magnum
                      • 6 Years
                      2 months, 2 days ago

                      That’s what draws me back to Walker, on my drafts I basically have 2 choices as I want a City defensive double up. Go with Ederson & Dias/Cancelo in a 3atb or Cancelo & Dias (or Walker with .6 extra) in a 4atb with a 4.5 keeper

                      1. CRO KLOPP
                        • 4 Years
                        2 months, 2 days ago

                        Yes,will think about it of course

                        1. CRO KLOPP
                          • 4 Years
                          2 months, 2 days ago

                          I will have full playing bench,and either starts or stays on the bench

                  2. Holmes
                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 2 days ago

                    Will be interesting to see if he starts vs Liverpool.

                    1. CRO KLOPP
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 2 days ago

                      I think he will,but Pep could rest him in some easy fixture

                      1. Holmes
                        • 8 Years
                        2 months, 2 days ago

                        With Livramento and Duffy available as our 5th defenders, I think we do have a luxury to go for certain players who may start 3 out of 4 games.

                        Dias/Cancelo/Rudiger are obviously superior options but if not affordable, I wouldn't mind picking Walker/Laporte/Christensen.

                        1. CRO KLOPP
                          • 4 Years
                          2 months, 2 days ago

                          Yes,I agree,depends on the rest of your defence

          2. Rainer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Good for Liverpool but there might be more Brazilian issues after the IB.

            1. Thomas Magnum
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              That’s my worry on gw8 WC, I want Jesus as a City attacker and possibly a placeholder for DCL when he’s fit. But I’ll also want Raphinha, so it’ll be a headache if things go badly with the governing bodies

              I had planned Depay > Haller but had to pivot with the Haaland & Reus injury concerns (and TAA).

              Bellingham & Lewandowski in - so hoping for something fun out of that. Going for a sneaky Bellingham (c) today too.

                  I can't find much fault with this, except maybe Saka or ESR for Gallagher.

                  1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 2 days ago

                    I agree. Should have gone for ESR with my FT last week. Chose Gallagher instead. Was the right call I think at that time.

              3. Champione
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                Keep long term:
                A) Gallagher
                B) Gray

                Leaning towards B due to the former’s lack of bonus and doubts over set pieces

                1. RogDog_jimmy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  2 months, 2 days ago

                  I trust Everton long-term over Palace as far as quality goes too.

                  2 months, 2 days ago

                  I like both, but if I chose one it would be Gray for sure, Milo seems to take set pieces last night I saw too which dents Gallagher’s appeal slightly too, both both good options I think

                3. Qaiss
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 2 days ago

                  Wasn’t he only off set pieces because Milivojevic was playing? He doesn’t start every week I thought.

                  Plus a card magnate. Was so frustrating to watch his 6 points turn into 4 last night.

                    Woosh, just noticed he had 11 yellow cards last season as well... Didn’t check that when picking on Wildcard. Hope he plays as a 10 in the next 2 home games or it’s prob best to get rid.

                That PSG team...

                Donnarumma; Hakimi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes ; Verratti, Gueye, Herrera; Messi, Mbappé, Neymar.

                  It's possible to have too many stars if they don't gel smoothly, it seems

                    I like the approach though. The Liverpool method of 3 hard-working CMs to compensate for having two offensive fullbacks.

                    It then gives Messi, Neymar & Mbappe freedom to roam centrally without having to worry about holding the width.

                    I'm sure it will work in time. Strong bench too as Cro Klopp says...

                      Yeah. I love Poch and wish him the best here, but it might take a few weeks or months for the puzzle pieces to fall into place

                      Or maybe it'll happen today, against one of the best teams on the planet. Could be a statement win if they somehow run riot

                  Might be coy as its City, doubt he'd rule him out anyway to keep Pep guessing.

                      Word of a groin problem only broke. They might wait for Klopps pre-game words to determine the colour of the flag. Expect 75%.

                        Yep, I think we have to draw a line under him and move on.

                        Perhaps revisit in GW14 if things have improved.

                          If I'm selling taa it would be for a Chelsea, already own rudiger, looks like azpi safest? Have to think Chilwell plays v Soton? Or is christansen best value?

                    I have Williams and Livra.

                    Who would you play this weekend if Trent is out?

                    Argh, made the wrong call with Shaw. Thought he would be out at least two weeks and drop in price already...

                    1. Qaiss
                      • 5 Years
                      2 months, 2 days ago

                      Is he available for Saturday?

                        • 6 Years
                        2 months, 2 days ago

                        Has a chance for tomorrow so you would guess he has even bigger chance to be available for Saturday

                      2 months, 2 days ago

                      He'll drop in price and blank at best on Saturday. Him out is the long term move, don't look back with worry.

                        I'm going to wildcard in GW8 so would have played him instead of Ayling or Digne

                        Yup. And they'll be without Maguire. Easy sell

                      I moved him out two nights ago, sounds like they will be without Maguire so thats a big loss for them, I doubt they keep a clean sheet Saturday so not too worried if he starts now or not, Chelsea ‘should’ be a clean sheet anyway if you bring Rudiger or Alonso in for him like I did(brought both in)

                        Brighton defense may blunt ESR's production. But you could say the same about Benrahma i suppose.

                          I wouldn't be removing Trent. Why not ship Shaw or Digne? United and Everton defense aren't very impressive.

                          Christensen probably the worst option to replace TAA with.

                            I have TAA, Torres, Shaw, Ayling, Jota, Greenwood.
                            Worried that half of them doesnt even start this weekend.

                            Have 1 FT.
                            Would you activate WC? If no, who have to go?

                            Trent possibly 3 weeks out... Early doors but reliable for Liverpool news.

                              City and a fortnight break. Not so shabby.

                              Klopp on Trent AA: "He's out for today and it doesn't look great for the (Man) City game either."

                                That's Duffy vs Arsenal over Trent vs City for me. I'll take it

                                  Might be a blessing in disguise!

                                    Exactly. I'm so glad it's short term. Some groin massage for three weeks and he bangs Watford

                                    Seagulls probably concede to Gunners too though, don't you think?

                                      Yes, but have you seen Duffy's goal threat? If he was 5.0 or 5.5, he'd be a starter for many FPL teams atm except in the worst fixtures... Probably including mine

                                          Oh totally. He could score on Arsenal for sure. I would say the same for Trent vs City except for the news that Trent might be on the sidelines for City also.

                                  wow - on my WC this week - this answers one of my big questions...no TAA it is.

                                Trent out is annoying!

                                  With Bamford on my bench and the one game I don't want to start Livramento.

                                    I’m hoping Bamford is back! But even so it’s forcing my hand for another transfer!

                                    On my bench unless it's a longer term issue.

                                  TAA, Greenwood, 4.5 fw to Alonso, ESR, Antonio (-4) yay or nay?

                                  Would you WC this or wait a week?

                                  Sanchez* - Steele
                                  TAA*- Shaw* - White - Ayling* - Livramento
                                  Salah - Jota* - Torres* - Benrahma - Greenwood*
                                  Ronaldo - Antonio - Scarlett

                                  Trent being out makes me almost hitting WC Button..

                                  Activating WC during IB could be better anyway.

                                    Also Jota starting now, so probably Firmino start weekend. Cant see Torres starting too.

                                    You would want TAA on WC anyway

                                      But Im really worried that cant get 11 players out this week..

                                  Looks like Livramento vs Chelsea on the menu

                                    I need to choose between Livra and Williams.

                                    Think I may go Williams lol

                                      That backfired on me when Livarmento was @ City and Williams was home to Watford. Double or nothing?
