This is part 3 of the FPL managers who contribute to the FFGeek site with good histories who show their teams each week. This will give people a feel for what other managers are doing. It’s a fairly informal thing with no obligation on anyone and these teams may change at anytime before the deadline without further notice. It won’t cover transfers in real time either. It’s just to give an idea of the trends for the week no more. The teams are shown as their “final-ish” teams so they could change. Where they have twitter accounts I have shown this and they may update them there or on our Slack Channel which is part of our subscription Patreon site but this is not guaranteed

I rolled my transfer going into this gameweek with the aim of maximising a DGW26 bench boost. This meant I didn’t do Soucek>Raphina transfer which backfired, at least for now. I got 72 points, from which I dropped from 52k to 58k which isn’t a disaster provided I can make a jump this week. Pope, Cancelo, Dallas, Bamford (C) and Bruno were the returners. Stones on my bench 3rd place, with Soucek’s 1 point coming on to replace Grealish. Salah, Gundo and Watkins the blankers.
I have 2 FTs coming into this week. Grealish has already gone to H Barnes who is on form and has decent double fixtures. I will be doing Walker Peters who is injured to Pereira who had a great attacking threat from midfield in the game vs Villa. He is just returning from injury, so is a risk but a double gameweek is a time to gamble on someone who I believe has a high ceiling, and is a great differential.
I will be taking at least 1 hit. Option 1 is a 4 point hit to replace Soucek with Son and keeping Bamford. Option 2 is to take a -8 to do Bamford to Kane and Soucek for Lookman for exact money. It’s a tough choice.
Option 1 benefits are a) only 1 hit, b) Bamford has a decent single gameweek fixtures and is a better prospect than Lookman with a double. The downside is I don’t trust Son as captain, and would much rather have Kane, so would captain Bruno.
Option 2 benefit are a) Extra DGW player (even if it is Lookman) who also plays in the blank GW29, b) Kane captain who I want and c) Not having a massive benching headache in subsequent weeks. The downsides are a) An extra hit and b) Losing Bamford who has served me well and has a decent fixture. Bamford does have trickier fixtures after this
I will have Martinez, Watkins, Kane/Son and Bamford/Lookman for GW29 following these transfers. 3FTs between 26 and 29 means 7 players for GW29 without hits. Not great but I believe the opportunity in GW26 for extra points outweights getting 11 out for GW29. I plan to wildcard in GW30.
Likely transfers will be Shaw/Pereira > Brighton defender, roll the transfer and then in GW29 itself bringing in Aubameyang for Salah and getting Bamford back and then maybe a hit to get to 8 players. I haven’t ruled out a wildcard in 29 to bring in some more cheaper players with the idea that I’ll bench these in future weeks but it’s unlikely enough players will be worth this.
Good luck all
transfer summary: Grealish out to Harvey Barnes in completed. Walker Peters out to Ricardo Pereira in to come. Another transfer TBC
Here’s the team with the Harvey Barnes transfer completed and assuming Pereira is completed. Bench Boost activated.
Avishek’s last 3 seasons are 13k, 45k and 64k

GW 26 team
Transfers made early due to exact funds available.
Ings to Kane
Bamford to Calvert Lewin (-4)
It’s not ideal to make early transfers with UCL and UEL matches going on but hopefully it won’t be too crazy and I can still save my WC. This GW is all about damage limitation with so many chips being played and I’ll be happy to be within 100k at the end of this GW.
Captaincy is currently on Kane but it could change to any one from Salah Bruno and even DCL. I”ll keep an eye on the polls but a triple captain chip is also not out of the equation.
Good luck and cheers!

Already transferred Barnes in for Grealish to beat price changes. Proposed further transfers Ings and Coufal out and Kane and Aina in. Also considering Taylor out for Digne or Pereira (Digne has the advantage of an extra game possibly in GW28). That would be a -12 in total though.
Captain: between Kane and Bruno at the moment (possibly Calvert-Lewin too).

A complete captain disaster from Harrison, blanked the first game then subbed at half time in the second..I just can’t catch a break this season! The last few years my differential moves have reaped huge rewards but this season nothing is working out for me. Onto this week I guess..
I have made 1 early transfers: Harrison out for Raphinha. My patience has ran out with Harrison so made the knee jerk transfer Sunday night. I don’t have a free hit so my transfers now are with an eye on BGW29. My plan is to wildcard in the international break to set me up for the final stretch of the season. With all that in mind the only teams I am targeting with my transfers are those who play in 29. I currently have 6 so can field a full 11 for the blank.
I had 2 FT going into this week but have used 1 early doors. I just can’t afford Kane this week as it would rip my whole team up. Spurs are not in great form so is he really essential this week? I’m not convinced, but the ownership scares me. I have no Villa players so that is my main focus. With Grealish out that only really leaves Martinez and Watkins so look at, and that’s exactly who I’ve put in.
Captain is a tricky one. All the doublers in my team I have doubts over. I had initially gone for Gundogan but he played 90 mins midweek so that now adds doubt. I know the polls are gonna say Kane but because I don’t have him I’m trying to work out the best option for who I have. I will most likely stick with Gundogan, but don’t be surprised if I swap it last minute!
Captain at the moment: Gundogan
Summary: Harrison, Barnes, Pope OUT; Raphinha, Watkins, Martinez IN (-4 hit)
