Rate My Fantasy Premier League Team

Rate my Fantasy Premier League team for game week 5

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

Based on published research, and capable of machine learning, our Automated Adviser 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 experienced 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:

Stones, Bailly, Mee
Alli, Willian, David Silva, Carroll
Lukaku, Benteke, Jesus
Defoe, Lukaku, Kane
Subs: Elliot, Evans, Stephens and Iwobi.

Captain: Lukaku and Vice is Jesus.
Money in the bank: £0.2m
Planned transfers: Willian -> Phillips so I have cash to upgrade Jesus to Kane 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

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.

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. Injuries and suspensions what’s the best plan of action?
    Foster Fab
    Valencia Mee Cameron Stephens Britos
    Alli Willian Carroll Pogba Rich
    Lukaku Morata Firmino

      • @Mr Go

        Pogba to Mkhitaryan/Mahrez/D.Silva.

        I loathe taking hits to replace defenders, but you are down to the bare bones here.
        Britos to Lascelles is a possibility as Newcastle may keep a clean sheet at home to Stoke. Your decision as to whether you consider it worth a 4pt hit, or whether you will play Mee against Liverpool

        • @OldGoat Cheers mate! In the end I went with Pogba to Silva and Cameron to Tripper. Didn’t really want to take a hit but felt like I had too.

  2. Foster (elliot)
    Daniels Davies Cedric (mee)(rangel)
    Kdb tadic pogba mooy (carrol)
    Kane lukaku firmino

    Have 0.3m in the bank and 2 free transfers, plz suggest how can I improve my mid

  3. Taken a -4 to get Davies and Choupo-Moting in for Pogba and Dunk. Happy with my current squad!

    Alonso, Davies, Jones, Cedric
    Alli, Salah, Mkhi, Choupo-Moting
    Kane, Firmino
    (Elliot, Mee, Abraham, Chalobah)

    • 0 in Bank, thinking of transferring Pogba and Aguero out for Kane and Davis, maybe taking a minus 4 hit and switching Vardy for Firming or maybe even Jesus
      BTW got 2 FT

      • @pogblahblah Take the 4 point hit, 4 points is nothing in the bigger picture, people are going to be dropping Pogba as fast as they can, this means his price will drop and other players prices will rise as people buy them in for Pogba.

  4. 1FT

    Looking at Morata – Kane

    Pogba – ?????? 6m to spend

    Could go cheap 4.5m and use the cash to upgrade next GW

  5. Advice needed lads… For a -8pt hit, is this worth it?

    OUT – Firmino – Pogba – Alli
    IN – Kane – Mkhi – Choupo-Moting (or Brady)

      • @Kumast Thanks mate. I’ve got Salah too. It’s really not having Kane that is doing my head in – used my WC last game week and decided to go without him and now completely regret it!!
