  1. The Value of Team Value 6 days, 6 hours ago

    This is the sort of question that makes ones head hurt, but the short answer is yes you are getting an advantage. It’s because, in theory, they will have less money to spend elsewhere. » Read

  2. The Value of Team Value 6 days, 10 hours ago

    I’d definitely think of the 20 points as a guidepost as opposed to the gospel truth, but your logic is sound. I’m going to look at this again in January to see if things change as prices have moved even more. » Read

    Not at all. I’d chose the asset that you want in your team, regardless of pending price moves. However, if you know that asset is going to rise during the gameweek, I do think there is some sense in getting them in before the price rise. » Read

    People play the game differently and that’s great. If we all did it the same, we would all have the same score and what fun is that. I was just trying to add a quantitative tool to the community to help to think through TV and its implications. Plus, it was a bit of therapy for me, reminding me not to spend too much time looking at FPL stats looking for the price rise (or fall). » Read

    Andy, it does sort of validate the strategy yes, and there is some logic there. At the beginning of the season, we have to ration our money, and so we pick premium defenders. However, given unlimited funds, I think we would all go 3-4-3 and start all of the high priced forwards. That part of the analysis was almost an afterthought to be fair. If you look at the graph of just the 4-4-2, for example, its a flat horizontal line after about 110 or so, so I needed to build-in formations. » Read

    If you can accurately predict this, I hope you can make it your career. You will do well. » Read

    If you fancy 3-4-3 (and I assume you do), gtg. I will say, this team really illustrates the trade off of going 3 at the front. No funds for Salah or sterling. If it was me, I’d downgrade Vardy and get one of the two. » Read

    If you are married to one or the other, go A. Otherwise I would say none of the above. » Read

    I should add that with 3 your lady starting mid is rubbish, but honestly that’s ok if the rest of your team is good, which it is. Personally I don’t have martial (I did), and when he is fit (which isn’t often), he is the #9 for man united. I think his sales and pending price drop are over done. » Read

    I like 1 actually. Firmino is a great shout, but it would be far better if he was 1-1.5 less expensive. 2 doesn’t work because you are forced to start lundstram every week. » Read

  12. Best Man City players for a Wildcard ahead of Gameweek 5 6 days, 19 hours ago

    Save, but I’d look to move Coleman to bench fodder (lundstram?) and upgrade KWP next week. » Read

    Once Kelly goes back to the CP bench, you can create basically any formation that involves 4 or fewer at the back. It looks to me like you want to play a 3-4-3 or 4-4-3 most weeks, or even 3-5-2 if needed. In all cases kelly is your B3. So why move him at all? » Read

    Agree. Erik doesn’t want to be there. I worry he is the new Pogba. Total class... except when playing for his club. » Read

  15. Best Man City players for a Wildcard ahead of Gameweek 5 6 days, 20 hours ago

    A or B. If I was forced to chose, I would do B » Read

  17. Best Man City players for a Wildcard ahead of Gameweek 5 6 days, 20 hours ago

    If you are married to one of the two I would do A. If not, I’d consider downgrading a forward to bench fodder and upgrading Kelly to Digne or a 5.5-6 back. Then you play 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 depending on the matchups. » Read

    I like Maddison a lot, but not over the next two fixtures. » Read
