Hey guys, as someone who has never been that interested in soccer but has fallen in love with fantasy sports recently, I’m giving FPL a crack. Who would you say are the must have guns that I should pick up to start my team?

Must haves (my opinion)

Striker – Kane
Midfielders – Salah, Perez, Zaha
Defenders – Alexander-Arnold / Robertson

Otherwise just look around the teams people have posted on here and create a squad. Adjust it and learn through out the season.

GC’s advice is good. Look to get a City attacker in there too (Sterling, KDB etc). You have two wildcards during the season, one for each half of the season. Plenty of people use their first wildcard early once the must haves start to show themselves., so that’s not a bad strategy too.

Any criticism welcomed
Ederson (Ryan)
TAA, Robertson, VVD, Digne, Laporte
Sterling, Fraser, Perez, Pereyra (Dendocker)
Kane (2 x 4.5 mill)

Thoughts??

I like it apart from Pereyra. If you can’t get Zaha then i would have a look at Yarmolenko who is very cheap.

I like him too, just thinking Pereyra could start really well…. Lenko similar and not as risky potentially, thanks GC

If you’re going with a premium keeper like Ederson, you may as well just whack a 4.0 second keeper in and save the 0.5 to beef up elsewhere. If playing 5-4-1 goes pear shaped, just wildcard early.

OK I have NFI what I’m doing but since slipping about 5000 places the last few weeks in NRLSC maybe that’s a good thing 🙂

Anyway let’s give this a crack…

Ederson (Button)
Alex-Arnold Robertson Digne Luiz (Kelly)
Salah (c) Perez Zaha Sigurdsson (Dendoncker)
Vardy Wilson (Greenwood)

Now to google how the wildcard works – I keep seeing it discussed.

Let me know your thoughts? am I bit light on attackers/ goalscorers?
Ederson -(button)
Wan-bassaka, Laporte, Azpilicueta, Alexander-arnold (Boly)
Ceballos, Salah, Sterling, Hayden (dendocker)
Auba, Greenwood (Mcgoldrick)

If Dybala goes to Man United be wary that Greenwood might not start a lot.
Hayden is a horrible fantasy player, Mcgoldrick has probably lost his starting position, And your defence is really expensive so i would look at trading Boly to a cheaper player like Dunk, also maybe trade down Azp to fund a Hayden upgrade.

Hey Guys

FPL is only a week from starting (!!), so if you’ve already signed up and starting to sort your team, here’s a league code. All welcome, will re-post regularly over the next few weeks… If you were in this league last season, you’ll be automatically entered once you sign up for the new season.

NRL SCTalk FPL League

First time playing and know nothing about EPL. Here’s my team. Advice much appreciated 🙂

GK: Ederson (Button)
DEF: Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Digne, Alonso (Martin Kelly)
MID: Salah (c), Zaha, Fraser (Bernado, Dendoncker)
FWD: Calvert-Lewis, King, Jiminez

I thought it’d be good to have 1 decent player on the bench for depth (Bernado) that I can rotate on matchups. Is this worthwhile or better off upgrading a starter to a genuine gun?

Update IMO. Another rated mid instead of Calvert- Lewis and Bernado for me gives you a 4 4 2 instead of your 4 3 3 though.

Emerson looks to have the spot over Alonso. Bernardo and Calvert-Lewis are definitely not safe now that Kean has arrived so i would look for alternatives.

An easy swap would be Alonso out and one of the Man City defenders in.

As for Kean – Everton have 30 million reasons to play him but Juve won that trade

Latest draft of my team and very different to my usual 3-4-3 set up.
Pope (4.0m GK)
Zinchenko, Robbo, VVD, Dunk, Van Aanholt
Salah, Sterling, Zaha (Hayden, Dendonker)
King, Kane (Wickham)
Will most likely WC around the 1st international break as per usual.
