Alright changed my mind again. Would basically require running 5-3-2 every week but thoughts on this:

For the record, with Kasper leaving, Ward will likely start the season at 4.0

Good shout, will bring him in. Any sense that you'd bring a new keeper in or will Ward get a good run at it?

Some talk but I very much doubt they'd start anytime soon, even if we got one in.

I like it
I’m the opposite with 3 premiums, but I think both are useful.
Do you trust 2 Newcastle outfield players?

That's a fair question. Might need to replace Trippier.

I expect Newcastle to be roughly around 10th so there should hopefully be some points there. Might be better to hedge my bets somewhat though.

It's a viable strategy this year though, there's a lot of value there.
the current draft for last years winner has 5 at the back, Ederson in goal and Vardy over Jesus. not sure if he’s trolling or it’s legit.

Vardy's not even guaranteed to start. That's definitely an out there idea.

I've got Vardy on my radar atm, any reason why he wouldn't start? With 5 subs he surely starts?

He might but imagine he’ll be heavily rotated. He had a lot of soft tissue injuries last season and he’s another year older.

I’d think we’ll see lots more of Daka.

People, learn to re-size your screenshots! :p When you paste them in the reply bar you can click them and drag to make them smaller so they don't take up half the screen.

This is where I'm at and honestly barring injuries, or last minute selection news, think I'm happy with it.

Very close to my current thinking. I have Ramsdale/Trippier instead of Meslier/Perisic

Fulham updates:

Leno signed. He will be first choice. Gazzaniga no chance to play. Fine if you need 4.0 but would look elsewhere.

Goal for Mitro on the weekend, and Andreas Pereira looked good. Worth a bench spot for sure.

So I have been roped I a cash league at work. Have no interest in soccer or how to play FPL but want to be good enough for banter at lunch.
Have played SC for years so know fantasy games well and was looking for any bits of advice that can help me be competitive. Thanks for any advice.

the game itself is fairly basic but it does require a rudimentary knowledge of the EPL so its hard to know where to start with someone who has no interest in soccer.

the main way to score points are goals and assists (everyone) and clean sheets (defenders/goal keepers only).
this means that defensive midfielders like Rice are usless and you want to try to pick defenders who also get forward.

team suggestions
  • get rid of Southampton players. they're not very good and their early fixtures aren't great.
  • there are better 4.5 mill defenders than Worrall. look at ownership to find some of the more popular ones
  • Alisson is a good keeper but it ties up a one of your 3 Liverpool spots that may be better spent on an outfielder. he's also expensive,
  • Van Dijk will get you plenty of clean sheets but doesn't have much attacking potential. see if you can get him up to an Alexander Arnold or Robertson
  • make Ward your bench goal keeper
  • Plange and Nketiah are unlikely to start so I'd look elsewhere

there's more but i'll leave it at that for now.
there's a metric crap tonne of content on youtube if you want to spend the time.

Leicesters other keeper added at 4.0

Means you can have the Leicester GK combo at 8m

Would love to have Son and Haaland to capitalise on both Spurs and City's starts but I think to do so it either means going No Salah (too risky for me) or No Jesus, but with the latter's ownership and lack of options around the 6m price that I'd want to start, just can't see a way to do it. Only other alternative is dropping a defender down to Paterson and starting a 4.0 defender in Williams or Patterson each week which defeats the whole theory of value at the back.

Might just have to book in Kane to Haaland GW2.

That's just about as good as I could get what you were suggesting.

Why not just start Haaland if you've got Salah already. You're not gonna captain Kane anyways
