Fergi is one of the best all round fantasy football managers around. He has six FPL top 1% finishes (best 715th) in the past seven seasons, numerous top 100 finishes across Sky Fantasy Football and Telegraph Fantasy Football and is the reigning Dream Team Champion.

Every week he covers his thought process and tips ahead of every Gameweek across all these formats exclusively for Fantasy Football Hub members.

For Gameweek 1 he has split out his Fantasy Premier League, Sky Fantasy Football, Telegraph and Dream Team team reveals but will as usual write his combined article ahead of Gameweek 2 onwards.

Dream Team 2021/22 Strategy

Welcome back all, I hope you had a great summer and am as raring to go as I am for Dream Team! Defending my crown will be difficult but let's give it a go!

Important - the intention of my team reveal articles is to share my thought process and teams at the time of writing. Team line-ups, last minute injuries etc may mean some of my line-ups and captaincy choices may slightly change come the deadline. I would urge you to keep an eye on team news and make the decisions you feel are the correct ones for you in the circumstances.

I will always endeavour to tweet my finalised team out pre-deadline regardless.

Planning

I have written three pre-season articles so far which I would recommend reading first as they will give you an idea of the kind of players I will be targeting, how I plan to approach the new season and manage my transfers and team throughout the season. The following team selections may then sound logical and make sense.

I would also recommend listening to this podcast from Dream Team Tonic who are very knowledgeable and skilled Dream Team players.

In terms of my approach to the season, I will be entering the full 10 teams with a variety of different players and strategies, but all centred around the same player pool.

My 'main' team will have quite a spread of teams and price-points with a balanced approach to targeting the short term whilst also thinking to the medium and long term. As per my seasonal transfer strategy, the game is very much a marathon and not a sprint.
