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 Automated Advisor

The most advanced RMT algorithm 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 Automated Advisor is a powerful FPL analytics tool. 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.

To link your team

1. get the url of your team from fantasy.premierleague.com. To do this open the game and click on POINTS. In the “Game Week Points” section you will see “View Gameweek history”. Open the Gameweek history page. Copy this URL.

2. Click “Profile” in the footer of the site. This will open your profile page.

The website field is in yellow on the image above.

3. copy the url into the Website field on your profile page and save.

Can YOU help someone?

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.

Keep popping back

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.

We look forward to reading your teams

  1. 1.2 in bank.. Wildcard Team.. Worried about my defense.. Do I need a Utd cover? Thinking about Lovren to Jones.. Is Walker an option as well?

    Thanks guys..

    • @sathish2888 Yeah Lovren out for sure. Go for Valencia, Jones may have rotation risk in the longterm. Maybe Alonso to Rose also? I would go also with Snod to Stanislas but it’s only my choice. Rest looks brilliant for me.

    • @sathish2888 here are two sugg from my side:
      1. i’d suggest lukaku> costa. if chelsea are title contenders then their star striker will score irrespective of fixtures. in defence, holebas and lovren needs to go. baines is a must to me. get an arsenal defender or keeper (OR in case keeping lukakau, get jones).

    • @sathish2888 Walker is more of an option (Rose is on 8 yellows; 2 away from missing match); why not Brunt in place of McAuley (if money permits)? More attacking and takes fk/corners as well. I’d consider Stanislas as well since B’mouth have favorable fixtures coming up.

    • @TheRasmus Not sure whats going on in that team :eek:

      Fonte wont start, so probably Yoshida and Van Dijk in centre. Bertrand and Cedric will play as fullbacks I guess….

    • @TheRasmus now would be a bad time to invest on S’ton defense; ex-Saints Schneiderlin; however, makes Everton quite alluring.

    • @VanDan* ‘will Aké play’ is the question on all fantasy managers’ lips this week.

      I’d cherish the moment (before quietly moving him on next week).

      But imagine if he plays, scores, keeps a clean sheet.

  2. Hi Guys,

    Thoughts on my team please?

    I’ve used both my FT and took a -4 point hit to bring Defoe, Stanislas and Ake in (for Anechebe, Capoue and Morgan, respectively)

    Ofcourse I was tempted to bring Aguero in, given he always has a good chance of scoring a brace or hat-trick, but at 12.8 it’s just too much to blow all my money on 1 player (considered Costa too) – when my moves have brought in 3 needed players.

    I feel Ibra can deliver against Liverpool, as can Kane and Defoe so fairly happy with my front 3.

    What do you think of my team?

    • @Keith_Harris_Allstars Nice. Obviously look to get out some of your Watford players next. You have no Liverpool cover even though they are the highest scoring team in the league and sitting in second! Look to get Lallana or Coutinho soon. Dele Alli or Eriksen are must’s too. Hazard and Sanchez are costing you a lot and leaving you with 2 average/good mids and one poor one. I personally would drop Hazard and get Costa as Chelsea attacking cover but up to you as Kane looks good at the moment.

    • @Keith_Harris_Allstars Looks all set for this round, I would look at getting rid of Paredes/Ake in coming weeks so that you have enough backup and rotation options. Allen to Philips next week looks like a no brainer aswell.

  3. @IvanTheTerrible cool. btw wht’s your opinion on getting pogba as an early differential? i have a hunch that his underlying stats are worth taking a risk at 8.5.

    • @IvanTheTerrible Umm… Not sure who he is but Koeman is doing some good work on team’s mentality. Barkley benched, making Lukaku realise that he can be dropped if no form etc etc… Addition of Schneiderlin is also a boost coupled with a possible Fonte move.

  4. IF a game gets postponed due to snow/ bad weather, I assume players get 0,and potentially get 2 matched in the week its rescheduled for?

    • @squintykid
      Yes, that is the case. These will go into a DGW. It happened many times in the past but now all EPL stadiums are equipped to fight against these conditions unless is some very severe storm.

    • @squintykid “potentially get 2 matched in the week its rescheduled for” If by this you mean the rescheduled match’s point for that players gets added to your player even if the player is absent from your team for the rescheduled one, then No, you lose that point.

      • @Dhakka09
        I am not the biggest fun of DGW. Many managers can’t wait for it Too many rotations and red cards on the horizon due to frustrations. Not to mention the injures in that cold weather, Be careful :unsure:

  5. Team to play Liverpool: Forster, Cedric, Yoshida, Van Dijk, Bertrand, Clasie, Davis, Romeu, Redmond, Tadic, Rodriguez.
    Team to play Southampton: Karius, Clyne, Lovren, Klavan, Milner, Lucas, Can, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Firmino, Sturridge.
