    Salah and Sterling pretty much locked in for most I’d guess. Most also seem to be very heavy backs and midfield. There seems little love for strikers this year.

    Why is everyone keen on Zaha?

    I think he’ll be more valuable at Palace than at Everton. How will Sigurdsson be affected if Zaha goes to Everton?

    He won’t be affected by it, Zaha would probably play on the right where as Siggy plays behind the striker.

    Zaha is classed as a midfielder but plays as a forward so is great value. He also has the ball a lot so is a goal threat.

    Hey does anyone have a spare space in an NFL fantasy draft league they’re looking to fill? Cheers

    G’day all. Anyone tried the Sportsdeck version of fantasy PL? My FPL team looks pretty good, but my Sportsdeck side looks awful. My first attempt is very disappointing, I am going to need more than 3 days to get a decent side together. Good luck all!

    Hey Guys. A couple on EPL information sites if anyone needs assistance picking a squad. Radio times.com and Fantasy Football 247. Can pick up some left field options and bench ideas. Cheers.

    are team lists out for fpl ? when does the final team list come out?

    Team lists come out after lockout. Lockout happens as soon as the team list is out for the first game, essentially meaning you will not know the lineups for any team prior to a lockout. Its why you can’t really risk super new signings or rotational players as it can backfire tremendously. Need to lock in your team each week 1hr prior to each gameweeks first game.

    All team lists come out 1 hour before kickoff. It’s literally a guessing game atm, especially when FPL ‘lockout’ before the Liverpool Norwich game. It’s what makes this game so hard to play.

    You should lock your team in before you go to bed. Not much will change and not much point waiting around. You get used to it.

    As the other guys said, you find out after lockout. Also, it’s not rolling. So if your player is left out or benched (in most cases, this is worse) you only find out an hour before the game and there is nothing you can do about it.

    Ideally you want most of your team to be ‘nailed on’ meaning they start the vast majority of games outside of injury. Van Dijk, Robertson, Kane are examples of this, as are most keepers.

    Anybody’s fantasy teams change with the deadline signings overnight?

    Not personally but its definitely food for thought. The likes of Tierney are appealing once they settle in.

    Goodluck mate. I’m constantly twisting my team and its doing my head in. Haven’t locked in mine yet. Have a few gut feels but can’t decide on who to go for. Be careful with KWP. Good for week 1 but against City week 2 and then most likely out of the team for Foyth or Aurier week 3 unless he does really well. Gotta make sure you aren’t put in a position where you have to do a -4 as they can be deadly.
