guy kills it as a RWB
I suck so bad at shit like this. Haven’t set a roster yet.
I still don’t get the scoring and all…Kane is my VC and scores a goal but that’s only 6 points?
VC only matters if C doesn't play
I want to make a VC France pun but can’t.
Get Points for = Goals + Assists + Clean Sheets + Bonus Points (basically game involvement)
All, except bonus points, are scored higher for Defense --> Midfield --> Forwards
Only Mids and Defs get Clean Sheet points
thats basically it
every week, Captaincy pick is crucial. And who your 1st off bench is, esp when someone tests covid+. I would fuck mine up practically every week last season.
thats why an Ngolo Kante type may be one of the best players in the world...but a terrible FPL asset. No scoring involvement.
So starting 3 forwards is not the way to go?
template is 2, and overwhelmingly Jesus + Haaland. Then most are picking an 8.0 Midfielder too when going that route.
some are trying to go to 3 Strikers which used to be the consensus lineup back in the day. Most are waiting to see what Darwin does tomorrow. Callum Wilson, Mitrovic, etc. If you go 3 up top...then youre settling on 5.5 mids which is risky without many data points on a Brendan Aaronson or Eze or Neto, etc. I got burned by Leon Bailey.
Value pricing is with Defenders and GKs. You can come up with a 5-3-2 lineup or 4-4-2 where you just set-and-forget (regardless of opponent) your Keeper and Defense. Once youve locked in that portion of your team plus Salah, you figure out the rest.
At 9:30pm est every night player prices rise and fall like the stock market based on transactions made.
you get 1 transfer each week, anything more than that is -4 points. you can only carry over max 1 extra unused transfer.
you get 1st wildcard that you have to use before gameweek 16, which affords you unlimited transfers
then everything pauses for worldcup, rare exception this year is during that break you get more unlimited transfers.
then in 2nd semester you get 2nd wildcard. Which we can discuss strategy on how to utilize that after boxing day.
My man Fran laying it out
Elite FWDs carry a small tax IMO and their goals count 20% less than MDs.
With that said, I have 3 FWDs now, Kane, Vardy and Jesus.
I'll be dropping Kane or Vardy asap unless crazy returns in GW3-4ish.
dont give up that easily
guess need to take Darwin out of my wildcard drafts
preseason, I definitely did not see this kind of selection issue re: Darwin/Jota/Diaz and to a lesser extent Bobby Chompers.
such a good nickname
With Eriksen dropping tonight, all 17 Man U players who have featured this year have now dropped in price after 2 game weeks. Amazing
How rational is to to captain Vardy over Jesus?
the worst feeling
Jesus might hit 90% ownership. Martinelli going to go up £1.5 mil during the season lol.
If a hockey assist ever shouldve been given
I just picked up Martinelli this morning. Can’t wait to drop Gordon next week. I will not finish last. That is my goal.
Try not to knee jerk and take hits. If you’re on Reddit, R/FantasyPL is a terrific sub for just about everything.
Save your hits for injuries and red cards. Thats it.
Feel like it’ll be chasing points, but that goal and his price point probably make Rodrigo essential.
He's been a hornet in the opposition box.
27 pts on my bench with Adams, Andreas and Meslier. Fun
Benched Trippier and replaced ASM this week.
Liverpool with 9 goals and captain Salah not involved on any of them how is that possible
And I tripled him this week.
Spent 4 points on an extra move to create room to bring in Haaland but captained Salah who apparently just watched that drubbing
He missed two tap ins
Have to start wondering if Salah decline is starting
Easy to use those wages elsewhere in the squad
I can never seem to pick the right person to be captain.
pretty much me every week of every season.
didnt think it could get worse than triple captaining Leroy Sane in a double gameweek, to only see him play 30 minutes due to Pep's bs....but then we all just witnessed Salah get no returns in a 9-0 win.
Lot of folks captained Dennis last year for his dgw where he red carded early in the first match. Mane had a brutal dgw triple captaincy a few years back too. This is why I’m wary of the threemium template. Much easier when trying to decide between two premiums with the odd TAA/Jesus captaincy when fixtures turn.
this weeks about to be a disaster
Reece James injured
Zaha pouting b/c he wants a transfer
Haaland about to begin his ride on Pep Roulette?
andddd Zaha starts
Who did you captain and VC this week?
I think it’s more likely Haaland rests this weekend with UCL and Spurs next week, but you never know with Pep. Switched it to him from Mo at the last minute.
Yea I went with Mo just to not chance it, and Gabby as VC.
Preparing for the worst
Captained Sterling last week.
Switched to G Jesus at the 11th hour.
Not feeling so hot now.
Mitro looking essential for those planning to WC in the next few GWs. Really nice run of games after Spurs/Chelsea.
I missed the deadline for this and probably will every midweek start. Not good.
twitter rumors that Haaland and Alvarez playing together
need points from Cancelo
KdB owners in shambles
full liverpool squad, all the big teams didnt rotate midweek.
