FPL Gameweek 12 Review

Another reasonable, if not great, week with a score of 70 points. This keeps me roughly around the same rank I was two Gameweeks ago, with a small red arrow from 37k to 44k overall.

It seems like the difference maker over the last few weeks has been whether or not you own Reece James (£6.1m).

I don't own him, and therefore I've had to work hard just to stay where I am. The highlight for me this week was probably the double Manchester City clean sheet.

Here was my performance in full:

Here is the Hub's Fixture Ticker for the next four Gameweeks. It's ordered from best to worst by opponent difficulty (the traditional fixture ticker view):

Hub Fixture Ticker - next four

Harry Kane (£12.2m) and  Heung-Min Son (£10.4m) failed to register any returns this week but there look to be further opportunities for both as Spurs sit at the top of the Ticker.

The North London club are followed by Leicester, Newcastle, Brentford and Manchester City.

 

Current Squad - FPL Gameweek 13 Team Reveal

This is how I'm currently set up heading into Gameweek 13, prior to making any transfers:

Matthew's current Gameweek 13 line-up

A reasonable set of fixtures, apart from Michail Antonio (£8.2m) who travels to Manchester City.

James McArthur (£4.5m) is likely to remain sidelined, rendering my bench quite weak. Meanwhile, Raphina (£6.7m), who has been a doubt for most of the season, could miss Gameweek 13 due to a fever.

The Top Players From Gameweeks 7-12

Here are the best players over the last six Gameweeks sorted by expected FPL points.

I have also highlighted those teams which are currently high on the Hub's Fixture Ticker for the next four Gameweeks.

Best Players - last six gameweeks

Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) continues to stand alone in terms of underlying numbers.

Among the more 'obvious' names, there are also some surprising and cheaper options with very good recent stats. This includes Josh King (£5.6m) and blast-from-the-past Christian Benteke (£6.2m).

Both been posting some great numbers, and returns, in recent weeks.

 

The Top Teams From Gameweek 7-12

Here are some key team stats sorted by total shots in the box. I have highlighted other notable stats in addition to the teams at the top of the Fixture Ticker.

Best Teams - last six gameweeks

In terms of the combination of attacking stats and fixtures, Manchester City and Brentford look to be the most attractive propositions at this point in time.

 

My Most Wanted List - FPL Gameweek 13 Team Reveal

This is where I identify the FPL players who I am currently considering bringing into my team the most. I'll also highlight who might make way for them.

I update this list each week and this helps me formulate a mental shortlist of potential moves.

 

Goalkeepers

New: Aaron Ramsdale (£4.8m) - starting to look the best overall value package in this position, with a combination of clean sheets and save/bonus points potential. If I need to free up money in this position, this is where I would likely go.

Out-list: None

Defenders

Reece James (£6.1m) – looking the real deal in terms of upside, albeit with some risk of rotation.

Sergio Reguilón (£5.1m) - looking an attractive prospect at wingback in Antonio Conte's system.

New: Marcos Alonso (£5.6m) - with Chilwell seemingly now injured for a good while, his wingback competitor comes straight onto the radar

Removed: none

Out-list: Ben Chilwell (£6.0m) who is now injured

 

Midfielders

Emile Smith Rowe (£5.9m) - offers great value at this price.

New: Conor Gallagher (£6.0m) - he doesn't seem to be going anywhere, another great value option in this bracket.

Out-list: possibly Raphinha (£6.7m) if his illness and injury problems persist.

Removed: Heung-Min Son (£10.4m) - because I opted for Kane last week and I'm unlikely to double up on their attack.

Forwards

New: Joshua King (£5.6m) - another great value option, especially when Watford's fixtures start to ease.

RemovedNone

Out-list: None

 

Transfer Plans - FPL Gameweek 13 Team Reveal

I will have one free transfer and £0.1m in the bank this week.
