The Fantasy Football First Site Team

Fantasy Football First 2016/17 Site Team for Game Week 28

My team was nominated as the official Fantasy Football First team. My job is to tell you how and why I have picked certain players and formations for the Fantasy Premier League, and explain my reasoning behind any changes along the way. This article explains the changes I have made to my team and why.

How did I do in game week 27?

For game week (GW) 27 I tweaked my transfer plan for navigating the blank game weeks of GW26 and GW28. If you are unsure what the impact of the FA Cup is on our FPL Team, read this helpful guide. My plan was:

  • GW27: Alli to Sterling
  • GW28: Costa to Lukaku and Sterling to Sigurdsson

I triple-captained Sterling because he had two fixtures, which did not work work out because Sterling did not play in the second fixture. I scored 86 points and my rank rose 63K to 82K.

Game week 28

As expected, work is needed for this game week in order to maintain my rank because I currently only have 5 players playing. In truth, I have four because of the Phillips injury. However, it could be worse!

Following my transfer plan of Costa to Lukaku and Sterling to Sigurdsson I have the following team, which still feels weak.

I don’t feel too comfortable with Stoke’s upcoming fixtures of Chelsea (H), Leicester (A), Burnley (A) and Liverpool (H), so I decide to bring in an Everton Defender for Pieters for a four point hit, which given I am thinking about this transfer over 4 weeks, can really be thought of as a 1 point per week hit, so should work out over the term. From Everton’s defence I picked Coleman quite simply because I can afford him.

I also spot that after the Everton game, Phillips has Arsenal (H), Man Utd (A), Watford (A), So’ton (H), Liverpool (H) and Man City (A). Tough games. Therefore, I decide to take a second hit and sell Phillips for Antonio. I picked West Ham because Bournemouth are without Mings, and I picked Lanzini over Antonio because Lanz is in form, although a fresh Antonio is tempting.

To confirm, this week I have sold Phillips, Pieters, Costa and Sterling and bought Lukaku, Sigy, Lanzini and Coleman for an 8 point hit.

Best of luck this weekend. Post your team below, tell me your GW28 plans, and I’ll take a look.

  1. I have 8 players without a hit. Do i need Siggy (for Phillips)?

    I have 5.1 in the bank due to the sale of Ibra.

  2. Thanks Boss, and good luck with your team :fingerscrossed:

    No transfers for me this week, as I already had 9 players with a game.
    Next week will see a cull in my current side as we head into the final 10 weeks

  3. Good luck everyone for this week.

    At least we won’t be fretting about our benches this week.

    Though someone, somewhere, will have clicked on bench-boost.

  4. Got 29 points with Catain Mane and the 2 point wonder Lallana to play! Already getting the red arrows, hopefully just because so many have Captained Lukaku. Really need to Mane to bring them in!!
    I have already transferred Llorente out for Kane as was my plan – looks like I chose the wrong one week wonder with King’s hatty – in a moment of madness I just went to bring him in for a -4 with Lallana out… and it reset as his price rise came in. That would have been my second hit of the season.
    The question is should I still do it?? I do think his price will continue to rise and Swansea next is a good fixture but after that not so good until GW 34.
    Thanks all :thumbup:

    • @Dalkeith Divided Maybe Walcott? As you said, King’s fixtures get tricky after this week, so better to avoid for now.

      • @Zaid south(a) liv(a) che (h) spur (a)
        Yes tough fixture but if bou fight to avoid relegate i think king should be the savior…n as 5th mid king is better than anybody…

    • @kamzy89 If you list out your team, and the money you have available, people can give advice.

      You can run it through the bot as well and see what suggestions that makes.
