    10/15 the same as me

    I’ve got the Sanchez/Bachmann GK combo too. Interesting to see it here in a couple of other teams, because the consensus of FPL “experts” is a 2nd keeper is not worth carrying. But I think for 0.5 more it’s totally worth possibly saving a trade. Especially with COVID still a chance of causing chaos. It’s literally the only part of my team I haven’t changed in the last few days

    Same front line here too. Though, could drastically change depending on Lukaku's price.

    I've been Sanchez/Bachmann since opening. Haven't played FPL in about 5 years but it seems a no brainer to have someone actually playing in case of injury

    There's a lot more scoring stats than FPL, so midfielders that don't score goals can still be useful.

    They follow Supercoach pricing change formula, of just using a 3 game average for price changes. Means if someone scores a goal 2 weeks in a row their price will shoot up massively and then crash again if they don't keep scoring. If you time things right you can get very rich very quickly. 42 trades for 38 game weeks means there is not a lot of room for playing the market though.
    If people want to play this seriously I can probably out some BEs up for it, although I'm unlikely to play it seriously myself so no guarantees. but if anyone is keen to do it just send me a PM and I can pass on my spreadsheets and how to get the data


    Because its the supercoach engine you can use the VC loophole. AEs can only replace players in the same position, so depending on where your red dots are it is more useful than the supercoach looping rules.
    I don't generally purposefully have a deliberate red dot, but if you do, get a keeper who won't play. Then always start your non-playing keeper.
    It gives you someone to captain if you want to loop, and your actual keeper will sub in if he gets a positive score, so its also a bit of insurance against his team getting flogged or him getting sent off. Of course if your keeper gets injured/dropped you don't have a replacement and have to burn a trade or play short. You can make your non-playing keeper the backup from the same club to help balance this.
    You can also do similar things during the season if you have a red dot and only one sub in that position. Start the red dot and put the riskiest player on the bench. Just means if they get a negative score it won't count, but anything positive will.

    Just had a look at creating a sportsdeck team

    Got to love the stats based pricing. Van Dijk at $4.2mil is half the price if equivalent players.
    And for some reason 47% of teams don't own him.

    I might go for a red dot goalie for looping. Not sure if I can be bothered though haha. Its an extra thing I'll have to do to set up the loop. I much prefer the easy path

    He was so far down the list I missed him.

    He comes in for Pereira.

    I’ve gone a bit rogue and just added three Everton players to my team now, because loading your team with players for the mid-tier team you support has never gone wrong before. Also taken a few other punts.

    Side is:
    Sanchez (Bachmann)
    Shaw Digne Alonso (Tsimikas Ayling)
    Salah(c) Fernandes Jota Gundogan Gray
    Calvert-Lewin Antonio (Deeney)

    I’ll probably trade out 1-2 Everton players before deadline but otherwise fairly settled.

    Carrying a bit of value on the bench, but generally not a fan of the 12-man squad approach. Don’t trust COVID and also gives me some time and flexibility to move on from early season punts that don’t work out (Alonso and Jota, possibly). It worked last season when everyone was freaking about game cancellations and I was able to navigate pretty easy.

    Hey guys, first post here so go easy on me!!

    English originally and been living in Aus for last 6 years... really got into NRL in last 4 years, but only been playing NRL fantasy for a couple of seasons now, so still finding my way with it although doing ok this year, current position is just a shade over top 6k.

    FPL however I have been playing for about 15 years and it has been my thaaang.... actually prefer NRL fantasy as I think it's a more complex game. But they're both excellent. High point of FPL career has been finishing top 1k around 4 times, obviously not easy given how many millions play it. Had 5 or 6 top 50k finishes, and rest somewhere in the 200k - 500k mark.

    My fourth edit of my team looks like this:

    Sanchez (Bachmann)
    TAA Dias Keane Tsimkas
    Salah (C) Son Bruno Soucek
    Ings Toney

    subs: Lowton, Bissouma, Obafemi

    This year I think there is FA value in strikers, terrible selection. Lots of value in defense & midfield.

    I'm a massive Spurs fan so once Kane's future is settled he'll be straight into my team. Straight in with no questions asked if he goes to City... that prospect in real life + fantasy is scary... but if he gets integrated back into our squad, I will very likely pick him also. He is a proven FPL GUN.

    The other one heavily to consider is Lukaku, who I'm formulating a plan on... he's very likely to tear it up playing in this Chelsea team. Not sure if he'll go straight in the team for first match? Hmm.

    Good luck to everyone in their FPL campaigns!!

    Welcome! 4 * top 1k is huge, especially in recent years

    And also agree with this

    As someone who only started taking FPL seriously 1.5 seasons ago, there is a lot of conventional thinking with it that seems needlessly complicated. The cynic in me says a lot of it is driven my content creators protecting their revenue streams.

    See some wild stuff around. Need to start with non playing players so you can pump money into starters. Can't own a premium if you don't plan to captain them.

    Seems counter to what you are trying to achieve for me
