72 701 Ganger

FPL Gameweek 31 feels like the last big week where FPL managers will activate their Wildcard.
In this video I take a look at some possible team selections including some things to think about when building your team and the best fixtures to concentrate on.
There are shortlists of players in each position that I'd be considering if on a Wildcard including my must own picks and final Wildcard draft and some tinkering towards the end.

      Saad RazaSaad Raza16 dager siden

  • @Let's Talk FPL - Wouldn't it be worthwhile essentially burning one if the defenders in a Wildcard with a super cheap defender... e.g. 3.8m on Mitchell? Just to give extra funds.... that way there's still 2 subs (one defender & one midfielder) on the bench.

  • Is Nat Phillips one that would be decent or should he be avoided

    Craig GlassfordCraig Glassford17 dager siden
    • definitely decent if you don’t mind getting the possibility of clean sheets. He’ll never get any attacking returns. So if Liverpool end up conceding, that’s a 2 pointer or 1 all day long. Unlike trent, takes set pieces and very attacking. If you have the money, Trent for sure

      poinkedpoinked16 dager siden
    • well liverpool have good quality of games coming up and a chance at a clean sheet , we have picked up form however could easily concede, villa i do think they will score ( putting 7 past last time with luck! ) but for future he is quite cheap and good to have

      wuchowucho17 dager siden
  • Playing WC this week. And going for the following: GK: Ederson/Sanchez (I know a lot of money here, but Ederson will play all games and City have best defence in the league, In GW33 blank and Man City vs Chelsea, BHA have easy games). Def: Coady, Fofana, Rudiger, Philips Veltman - Can change Veltman to Holding MF: Neto, Jota, Salah, KDB, Son FW: Antonio, Kane and iheanacho Might change KDB+Philips to TAA+Mahrez depending on Pep's lineup, but feel KDB, if he starts vs Leeds will haul big. Any thoughts Andy?

  • Used my wildcard this week just gone, Went for GK: Pope, Lloris (one has a good fixture each week until the end of season) DEF: Shaw, Keane, Rudiger, Coady, Soyuncu MF: Jota, Mount, Gundogan, Fernandes, Neto FWD: Calvert-lewin, kane, bamford. Planning on making changes each week as such: 31: Mount - Saka (if he is fit) 32: CL - Vardy 33: None 34: Rudiger - Cresswell. 35: neto - lingaard 36: vardy - CL coady - dallas 37: saka - raphinha 38: spare (maybe kane out?) Tried to get always a good 11 for the teams they are playing against. Looking at this it seems like Salah is in ur must have but I just think he isnt worth the value even though he has scored alot of goals, I just think jota will be the goalscorer in taht team now that he is back.

    Jordan RichardsonJordan Richardson17 dager siden
    • I wouldn't have Lloris if I were you I would downgrade him to a cheaper goalie, and your defence has to many CB's who have a 6 point cap. Try to look for cheaper full backs and re-invest the money into the midfield. Gundogan > Son or Gundogan > Salah would be my recommendation, but that is up to you.
