Help My Team for game week 21

Here to help. Post your team and get good constructive feedback on your selections. We will share our thoughts and concerns to help each other build better teams and hopefully win our respective mini-leagues.

How does it work?

Tell us your first 11, bench, cash in the bank and captain as we’ll take a look. We might tell you there is too much money sitting in the bank. We might question if you have the right striker or goalkeeper. We will point out obvious errors like it is rarely a good idea to have a defender as captain. For sure you will be told about the absence of a ‘star’ player and the captain de-jour.

Option 1: Post your team using the Rate My Team Opti-Bot

The most advanced RMT Optibot on the market today is now in “Release 7 Beta”, meaning it has been updated with the latest functionality to help managers for the full season. Based on published research, and capable of machine learning, our optibot is the most powerful analytics tool currently available to FPL Managers. Our Points Prediction engine takes into account new signings, formation changes, manager changes, and many other factors.

However, Fantasy Football First’s uniqueness is that as well as the excellent analytics engine, we have excellent FPL managers who’s opinion you can canvas. Data and experts – a powerful winning combination. Check if your team is ready and import your FPL team. Enter your FPL Team Code and import your team direct from the FPL site!

Option 2: Write your team in a comment

Post the players you select in the formation you want to play them, and separately list your subs., transfers and remaining cash in the bank. For example:

Please rate my team:

Baines, Terry, Azpi
Ozil, Payet, Wanyama, Townsend
Defoe, Lukaku, Kane
Subs: Mignolet, Chadli, Smith and Fosu-M.

Captain: Ozil and Vice is Payet.
Money in the bank: £1.5m
Transfers Mingolet -> Boruk so I have cash to upgrade Terry next week

Link your team

Linking your team means anyone can click on your profile image and see your team. This helps because the reviewer can see your transfer history and get a sense of your overall strategy. After all, we don’t want to suggest a player you have just sold.

You’re more than welcome to join the fun. Helping each other out is what this site is all about. The sharing, the arguing and yes the gloating is all part of the fun. Its not all stats, stats, stats. Just give constructive feedback on the team and your view on the points it will earn, and you are all set.

As the season progresses we’ll provide all sorts of articles, stats and tables to help everyone to maximise their points potential. We’re also posting updates on who is playing well or playing out of position in the weekly game reviews, thereby giving us all the latest information. The first set of tables are out and will be updated on Thursday. So keep popping back to see the latest player information.

  1. Made a few wrong turns with my wildcard last month, stuck with several players who are not living up to their name :)
    Any suggestions are welcome! :D
    2 mil in the bank and 1 ft

  2. *Bournemouth have received clearance from DR Congo to play Benik Afobe during in the Premier League during AFCON.
    *Reports suggest that Puel could omit Fonte from his Saints line-up until after the January transfer window closes.
    *Hull’s Dawson set for further tests today on shoulder problem, confirms Silva.
    * Dimitri Payet is likely to leave West Ham if the club are unable to improve their form, according to Sky Sports pundit and former Hammers striker Tony Cottee.
    *Arsenal have confirmed the signing of left-back Cohen Bramall from Hednesford Town.
    *Stoke City have made a formal bid to buy West Brom striker Saido Berahino, according to Sky sources.

  3. Please help my team  Any thoughts on how to replace Mane? I like Alli but fear too much Spurs with Ericksen. Firmino? Lallana? I’d like to get rid of Holebas and could package him away.. I have 2 free transfers… Much obliged for any thoughts…

  4. 1.1 In the Bank.
    2 FT left.
    WC active, but I would want to wait for some more time until I use it.
    I am this week for sure thinking of subbing out Siggy and replacing with someone (though RMT bot disagrees).
    According to the RMT prediction, looks like I can just do with Benteke and Defoe for now.
    Any suggestions apart from a complete team overhaul?

      • @IvanTheTerrible
        Yes. thanks, Ivan.
        I was contemplating:
        For Siggy replacement: Most likely Philips or Snodgrass, Capoue, Milner, Allen.
        For Stuani replacement: Either Rondon (if not choosing Philips to avoid double teaming, or is it a good thing), Deeney, vokes, Gray, Origi.

        According to RMT’s PS for N3GWs:
        Redmond/Zaha/Phlips for Siggy and,
        Rondon/Carroll/Deeney/Wilson for Stuani.

        Based on this, was thinking if I should do Redmond and Rondon for Siggy and Stuani.


    • @tejus2005 You’ve got a lot of wedge tied up with your goalkeepers. I’d say you only need one of those, with a cheap alternative.

      Similarly I’d leave the pricey defenders at Cahill and Walker and downgrade van Dijk.

      • @Kralin
        Great idea. Thanks for that suggestion. I was thinking of using that while doing a WC in a 3+ GWs when the teams might be settled a little bit more. Does that make sense?

        • @tejus2005 Yes fine, though the more money you have now the more options you’ll have. I may be inclined to go 50/50 – one transfer to improve the finances, one transfer to improve the team.

  5. Team to play Hull: De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Darmian, Herrera, Pogba, Mata, Rooney, Mkhitaryan, Rashford.
    Team to play Man Utd: Jakupovic, Robertson, Maguire, Meyler, Huddlestone, Snodgrass, Clucas, Diomande, Henriksen, Mason, Tymon.

    • @SecretZorro* I’ll be curious to see if Klopp gives it the same priority tomorrow that JM has this evening. Given the team of tyros put out on Sunday, I suspect Liverpool will go out (sic) with a strongish side.

      • @Kralin Kop’s said that he’s only interested in the League this season, no distractions. However the fans will always want to go to Wembley, he shouldn’t underestimate that.
        Even if he realizes that Utd will win, he needn’t tell the fans that! :clap:

  6. Hi All

    Not sure what to do next .. 2FT and 1.7m in the bank.

    Grant (Pickford)

    Jones, Alonso, Holebas (A Smith, Evans)

    Sanchez, Eriksen, Lallana, Philips (de Roon)

    Ibrahimovic, Kane, Defoe

    Is my mid/attack ok?

    Thinking I need to sort out defence due to injuries and non-players?

    For example
    Option A: Defoe, Smith to Giroud, Brunt
    OptionB: Defoe, Lallana to Giroud, Hazard
    Is Eriksen to Ali a wasted transfer?

    So much to ponder …

    • @Stew

      Holebas, Smith or Evans to Rose?, or maybe get Baines as Everton have decent fixtures after this week. Evans to Brunt would be a cheap option, although both are currently listed as injured.

      Not sure why you want to change your front 8, when you state that it is your defence that needs sorting though.
      I would defo keep Defoe – where will you get a better striker under 8M?
      Also keep Lallana. Liverpool have mixed fixtures, but they are capable of scoring against any team.
      Eriksen to Alli is a wasted transfer IMO. Maybe do Kane to Costa though


      He is more of a defensive midfielder. I suspect he will take on the role that Gareth Barry had been doing (minus the yellow cards, I hope).
      Everton have decent fixtures after this week, so he MIGHT be worth bringing in.
      Do bear in mind that players take a while to settle down into new clubs though

  7. @Secret Zorro We have probably discussed this before but cant recall what was the conclusion! :oops:

    Is Ireland and Northern Ireland same country? Looking at Coleman(IRE) but I do have Evans(NIR) aswell, so wanted to make sure before the move…
