Player form ahead of GW5

I’m pouring over the stats to see who I should get in, I’ve decided on my Goalie, its Pope from Burnley. They have some good games coming up so I’m expecting some clean sheets. Defenders… well I’m still playing with the formation.

The attacking area is where I’m going all out. KDB, Sterling and Salah are three players a lot of managers are trying to get in, but then you have the headache of Captain 🙂

Interestingly the choice of formation and which players to have in will be based on where you think the points are coming from. I’ve opted for bargain forwards but Aguero could be a great choice, look at his games. But with Champions league football just around the corner I have one eye on rotations.

So who have I gone for, well, the three musketeers in the middle are a must, but Premium forwards could scupper my plans to maximise on points. Aubameyang, Haller and Kane are just outside the top scoring forwards. Are they a good bet? Can Abraham and Pukki continue with their great form. Will the Pukki party continue against City? so many questions.

I’ve also been playing with text alerts based on stats, first one is based on transfers. A select few are on the testing list 🙂

Back to the players As a differential I’m going for some Watford players in my team, new manager bounce is going to take effect. Watch the points roll in 🙂

Almost GW5

GW5 is almost upon us, the wildcard was activated what seems like ages ago but I finally have the final draft done. Is it good enough to get me climbing the leagues? My team is worth less now than when I started, so its obvious in the first four Game weeks I got something wrong, also I’m about mid table. Lots to do now

TAA seems to be a favourite amongst the premium defenders, mind you the lack of clean sheets means his assists are a great compromise to getting points.

Year on Year he is up as well

I have got the Player form stats working now, so later this week I will do a more in depth post.

Back to the stats.

International Break

International break so that means Wild Card time. Two weeks of playing with the team, but still considering the price increases and decreases. GW4 points haul was below average so the team really needs changing, but who to go for?

Looking at the stats Man City, Liverpool and Leicester are the top three point scoring teams.


Man City


I’m also trying to look at what other FPL Managers are doing. Before the season started I thought that Burnley would do better and Wolves worse due to the European games, this opinion was based on the squads. FPL Points they are neck and neck but in the actual Premiership Burnley is doing better, only just though.

Transfer wise it looks like this

I have created my team but there is a some possible tweaking left in one of two positions but I’m hoping the main 11 will do well, looking at budget defenders will Kelly get the game time now others are returning to the first 11 squad. Lets see, as at £4m he’s a good bet.
