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

So another green arrow to 200k, with a decent TV of 104.6m ,that I hope I can translate it to points later on this season, had 1 ft , and did early transfer took about Mane for De Bruyne who will be my captain.
After the Villa Newcastle postponement, I found my team without a GK, I thought about a hit for the first time in the season, but as for now I will leave it like this, so a tough GW for me with 10 players, Dallas playing away vs Chelsea, I hope I will be able to stay around the 200k mark for another gw. Next week I am planning maybe to bring in Salah plus a cheap FW for Vardy and Romeo.
Good luck all!!

A strong gameweek and a healthy green arrow much in part to the pre-planning from my Wildcard 2 weeks ago but also due to a late decision to use the spare transfer I’d factored into this current 4 week block of GWs. It’s nice when your Transfer In pays you back immediately and Diogo Jota did just that with 9 points. There was a second plus side to this later on too, as it allowed me to bench Ollie Watkins after I’d grown concerned about my triple Villa coverage (more on that later), so this turned out be a straight 9 point gain after Watkins missed a penalty and cruelly had a goal disallowed at the death.
It was also definitely a week for midfielders – 3 ten pointers from De Bruyne, Bruno and Grealish, though my decision to Captain Vardy over the 2 Manchester players cost me 5 points here with Vardy lucky to return an assist in a limp Foxes performance against Fulham. My other return was 8 points from Chilwell and I was denied a clean sheet in the City game by Pep Roulette, with KWP coming off the bench for a lone point.
So moving forwards my initial plan was to bank this week’s transfer, Captain De Bruyne and then sell Vardy in GW13 to fund Ziyech’s move to Salah. What do they say about the best laid plans of mice and men? Oh and about that triple Villa….
Villa versus Newcastle has been cancelled due to a Covid outbreak at The Magpies, so my situation is 1FT, £0.1m in the bank and 3 players missing including my keeper.
I’ve got a few options. I can sell Martinez and have a playing keeper (my reserve is non-playing Forster) – I’m not keen on this as Martinez only misses one game and will now have 2 doubles going forward. So I’m going with 10 players, that’s decided. Next option is to do nothing and just grin and bear it this week. I’ll probably manage a full outfield, though Cancelo and Neco Williams both have gametime risk so this isn’t a given and could leave me with only 9 players. The plus side is that there will be a lot of points hits and Free Hit chips deployed this week, so I’ll have a head start on the opposition in this regard.
Option 3 looks good on paper and that’s Watkins to Adams. I’ll need to watch prices here as I’ve not much wiggle room, but this looks a good conservative option that will give me 10 this week and not have to worry 2 much about my possible non-starters. Adams has 2 good fixtures and Ings might be back this week as well so this could work well. Watkins’ penalty miss also means that moving him on more appealing. I’d then do a minus 4 next week to make the Salah upgrade. Option 4 is more aggressive – I can do Watkins to Brewster and Grealish to Mahrez. This looks good short-term but I’ll want Grealish back at some point and still gives me a player with gametime risk this week in Brewster. And I’ll still be taking a minus 4 next week for Salah.
So looking at it, I like the Adams move for 2 weeks so he’s in for Watkins. For my team this week, Williams and Coufal will be my bench players – who knows, maybe Forster will get some gametime if McCarthy gets sent off or something. And it’s De Bruyne for Captain all the way this week.
Looking further forwards, I’m then looking at a -4 or GW12 to bring Salah back – I’d lose Vardy and probably Ziyech out of my midfield with Salah and a cheap forward coming in. Bamford has a good fixture run incoming and is still posting some eye-watering stats in terms of Shots in the Box and xG, though a further downgrade to Brewster would allow me to strengthen my defence and possibly go with 3 premiums here. I’ll see how I feel after this week and we might get some news on the GW18/19 blank/double situation by then so his could influence things further.
Good luck for GW11 folks – hope you enjoy the games.

Made a move relatively early (for me) this week. Son to De Bruyne, and the armband has been put immediately on him. It was excruciating watching him play Burnley last week and not owning him!
Having Grealish out is far from ideal, as I’ll have to rely on Bissouma’s inevitable 1 or 2 points, but there’s absolutely no point taking a hit to remove the Villa man: the chances are whoever I bring in would not score enough points to justify the hit, and I would want Grealish back soon anyway.
I am however monitoring the Robertson situation. If he’s out, I would only have two defenders likely to start. In those circumstances, I would look to take a hit, a longer-term move that would free up some money in the process. Dias and Reece James being the obvious options. That said, I would prefer to keep Robertson and avoid the hit for now, especially with the Fulham fixture next week. Let’s see what Klopp has to say in his press conference.
