Help My Team for game week 38

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 Adviser’s algorithm

The most advanced RMT Adviser 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 Adviser is a powerful 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, Gibson, Azpi
Sigy, Sanchez, Wanyama, Fletcher
Defoe, Lukaku, Kane
Subs: Lloris, Chadli, Morgan and Silva.

Captain: Sanchez and Vice is Defoe.
Money in the bank: £1.5m
Transfers Lloris -> Robles so I have cash to upgrade Wanyama 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

  2. Great effort Goldi in my rules, i am almost sure of a win now unless he gets 50odd points, then again could be done lol, so close now of having that cup wooohooo :bliss:

    • @Chazz69 Puel was wondering how best to completely p*ss off the fantasy community. Gabs has joined in the fun as well. A Stephens own-goal will complete the evening’s merriment. Makes note: never pick Southampton players again.

  3. @ChorleyRocks @Kralin Who would you sell for Sturridge? – Kane, Costa or Jesus? I think good reasons for keeping all three. I´m (still) chasing.

      • @Kralin Yes, I suppose he´s the obvious candidate although my rival doesn’t have him so already a punty differential there. We both have Jesus and Kane, so a front three of say, Kane, Costa and Sturridge would mean two differential forwards.

        • @Kumast CR seems slightly out of sync with the rest of us this evening. I had a disturbing thought that we may merely be characters in CR’s brain as he tinkers with his website.

        • @Kralin The idea reminded me strongly of a great sci-fi story I read some years ago, the author of which I can’t remember. I haven’t read Ubik but I just nipped over to Wikipedia and I´m intrigued. Have read other stuff by him. A pioneer.

        • @Kumast oh definitely and the stuff from his golden period (the 60s) is probably the best sci-fi I’ve read. I just love the endless loopy inventiveness of Dick, all the overlapping realities, (and the fact his characters are normal people, bumbling along). The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch is pretty good as well, as are many others.

          Hmm, and Costa…

        • @Kralin Apart from The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch and Ubik what other Dick novels would you recommend? He’s always been someone I’ve been interested in

        • @Charlie Dance I like Stephen Hamilton. Some great ideas like ‘if you can Google a thought and get a reply as a thought, then do you need a firewall for your mind to prevent corruption of ideas and information (and thus decision making)?’

          Seems relevant in this era of manipulation by fake news.

        • @ChorleyRocks Cool, cheers for that, I’ll have a look into him!@Kralin @ChorleyRocks

        • @Charlie Dance Do Androids… is very good, much better than the film version. The quality of his output in the ’60s was astonishing. Of the later ones, Flow My Tears… and A Scanner Darkly are worth a read. With PKD it’s best to just dip into one you fancy.

        • @Kralin That was one of the ones that was high on my list, always wanted to see how the 2 compared. I’ve seen the film adaptation of A Scanner Darkly as I’m a big Richard Linklater fan so will look into that and Flow of my Tears too – cheers!

        • @Charlie Dance The film version of A Scanner Darkley is the best Dick adaptation I’ve seen, by some distance. But the book’s better. You can really taste that awful drug when you read the book.

        • @Kralin Interesting description – makes me more intrigued now! The vast majority of films that are based on Dick’s work that I’ve seen have been ridiculously poor. Screamers, Imposter, The Adjustment Bureau, Paycheck or probably nothing like the novels – Total Recall and Minority Report

        • @Charlie Dance Strangely I didn’t mind ‘Total Recall’ too much, though it bears only a slight resemblance to the short story – ‘We Can Remember it for you Wholesale’, which is typical Dick mindwarp.

          But I have a soft spot for Paul Verhoeven films.

        • @Kralin Don’t get me wrong I really like that film and alot of Verhoeven’s stuff – Robocop is one of my all time favourites and I quite like Starship Troopers too. Turkish Delight and Spetters are in my “to watch pile”. Wish someone would give him a massive budget again to go crazy with!

        • @Charlie Dance no, not at all, and everyone to their own thoughts. ‘Starship Troopers’ is one of the sharpest critiques of fascism I’ve seen in a mainstream film. I loved it.

        • @Kralin That film went over so many people’s heads, might have to revisit it, haven’t seen it since the 90s

        • @Kumast I used to love Bradbury. Haven’t read any for a while but I had a few of those battered Panther paberbacks.

    • @IvanTheTerrible a tricky jose…a bad move for manager use bb for valencia n rashford.
      I sell val since mou do this.
      Another unsung hero..romero become a highest gk point…no one think about him…n the same price with willy…

      So maybe tommorow kane n alli get a huge poin??…i dont know…i get 155 poin so far after bonus. :happy: even i still a miss for holgate haz n costa…

  4. 0FT and 2.1m ITB
    Trailing by 70 pts to leader. Have my TC chip in play.
    Any recommendations for a – 4 hit and Captain for GW38?? Here is my team :

    Cech – Caballero
    Monreal – Stephens – Fuchs – Davies – Azpilicueta
    Redmond – Coutinho – Son – Sane – Sanchez
    Rondon – Gabbiadini – Jesus

    any thoughts really appreciated…Tq :zorro:

  5. Good week for me for now. 70 pts behind are just 10 now. I really need to be ahead this week so I need advice.
    1.Coutinho for Ali or Erikssen?
    2.Do you think Costa will play. Should I change it for Vardi.
    3. And captain advice is crucial this week !

      • @jackthejackal I think it depends on the likelihood of a Chelsea clean sheet. If they keep a clean sheet then you’ve got to pull a rabbit out of the hat.

        How about Lukaku to Defoe (punt and would be fun if Defoe took down your opponent’s team) or Eriksen to Coutinho?

  6. Hi guys…hope u all did well for last GW…
    I brought in Cautinho for Hazard for HW38..
    2.5m ITB, 0 FT…
    Please advise me for nxt GW:
    A) Stick to current team…353..
    B) Clichy > Clyne for -4..play 442 n bench Gabby..
    C) Play 352…bench Gabby n play Carroll

    And also, who shall I Capt…Kane, Cautinho or Sanchez…?

    Thanks alot for your help n guidance guys…this is my 1st FPL season n proud to finish among 30K plus…looking fwd for next season…Cheers… :thumbup:
