    Some very good scores coming 0ut of this league. Just to give you all an idea, I am on 78 points and ranked 279860 with 2 players to go. There are about 20 players in this league above me at present and heaps level or one point off. Not bad for 5,500,000 odd participants. 75- 95 seems to be good score on FPL the scout forum at present.

    That’s great news. I’m on 74 with 3 to play! It’s so frustrating watching B Silva rotting on the bench and you can’t sell him as lockout occurred an hour before the first game kicks off on Friday! Bloody fantasy football!

    Another site that might be helpful for those newbies [like me] is the predicted price change of players. Seems as though a certain amount of transfers can change prices. Anyway check it out if you want. http://www.fplstatistics.co.uk/. GL all.

    Thanks. How are people going in the Sportsdeck league? I’m on 100 with three to play. Thanks to whoever it was who suggested De Bruyne! Anyone know how many points Sterling scored – he was just so damned expensive in that format!

    Hopefully Ceballos doesn’t see any game time, have Dunk as my 1st R. 79 with 2 to play, Jimenez the other.

    Ended up with 83 points and sitting 750Kish. Seems lot of people triple Captained Salah or Sterling first game. No trades this week, keeping it so I can do 2 GW3 if needed. Probably dump one of Bournemouth then, Interesting game this, found out you get one free trade each week but can maker more than that at minus 4 points a go. Could be tempting at times.

    Perez gets one more week. He was utterly useless! Don’t sell any Bournemouth players, they have an incredible first 3 months!

    Getting some insight into this game now, need another starting player on my bench for rotation to pick up clean sheets if possible. Can get by at present but will need to happen.

    53 Pts , difference is needing 1 gun and as a Captain choice by the looks of it

    Might need to use the wildcard

    team is
    lloris, Allison
    Mcguire, AlexanderArnold, VanDjik, Kelly , freeman
    Zaha, BSilva, Debruyne ,Tielsman , neves
    Haller, Wilson, Jimenez

    Not sure how trades work and money value works from here

    The Myth

    I’d be inclined to hold the wildcard a little bit, it’s not a bad team. Players rise in value when they are traded in by the masses and vice versa. For each 0.2 they rise you can sell them for 0.1 more than you bought them for. Don’t expect to have a team of guns to finish the year. I’d look to make 3 transfers, so a -8. Not ideal but it could sort your team. Allison to a 4.0 keeper. Tielmans/zaha to dendoncker Bilva to Salah/Sterling Alternately: Allison to 4.0 Haller/Jimenez to a 6.5 (e.g Jota) Wilson to Kane/Auba… Read more »

    One free trade a week. If you use more, it will cost you 4 points a trade. If you don’t use a trade this week, you can use 2 free trades next week. Only a maximum of 2 free trades a week. BUT of course this isn’t taking into account the Wildcard chip where you get to use unlimited trades once before round 18 and once after. And the Free Hit chip which you can make unlimited trades then your team will revert to what it was before you traded. Yeah this game does my head in. B Silva should… Read more »

    Not bad, first week in my rookie season tied first in the league with 103, just got to keep it up now. Is it best to chose captains on match ups?

    So as far as I can see 4 players have had price increases today, Ederson, Sterling, Rashford and Martial all increasing by $100K. If I have one of these guys and want to sell [for arguments sake] I believe I get charged a percentage of thier price is this correct?.

    You lose 50% of the profit you make. If its an odd number, it always rounds down. For example with Martial at 7.5m If he goes to 7.6 and you sell, you will actually make 0 profit. If he goes to 7.7 and you sell, you will make .1 profit. If he goes to 7.8 and you sell, you will still only make .1 If you buy Martial at 7.6 and try to sell at 7.7 you will make no profit and the same process occurs Buying at 7.6 and selling at 7.8 nets you .1 profit etc. With this… Read more »

    Warning for anyone thinking about bringing Adrian [Liverpool goal keeper] into their team. He was kicked in the ankle by a spectator at the end of Wednesday nights game and is in doubt to play.
