FPL Heisenberg's Gameweek 3 Team Reveal
I've delved deep into my decisions, breaking my Gameweek 3 FPL team down by position by position.
Brighton's Robert Sanchez (£4.5m) is between the sticks, I had considered Daniel Bachmann (£4.5m) pre-season and he still may be a decent choice, but I believe the Seagulls stopper is the strongest option in that price bracket.
Brighton's Jason Steele (£4.0m) is be my back-up goalkeeper, as he is currently Brighton's second choice goalkeeper whilst Kjell Scherpen (£4.5m) is injured.
With outfield positions I tend to look at the first six fixtures, but I intend to keep goalkeepers right up until my first Wildcard, which could be as late as around Christmas time. Therefore, I take a "set and forget" approach.
That means early fixtures hold less weight than they do for outfield players.
Although Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) speaks for himself, Konstantinos Tsimikas (£4.2m) played 90 minutes in Gameweek 1 and was very attacking. He produced 12 crosses and two shots in the box. He backed this up in Gameweek 2 with a lovely assist. However, with Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) back, he will now be moved to third on my bench until I transfer him out.
Luke Shaw (£5.5m) has been frustrating, with no attacking returns or clean sheets so far. I have to remind myself to be patient, we are only two Gameweeks in. I have no plans to move him on as of yet.
Watford's Kiko Femenia (£4.4m) provides great value as a cheap route into a solid defensive team (although solid in the Championship doesn't always translate into solid in the Premier League).
Regardless, he has strong opening fixtures, so if I have to play him I'm happy to do so. Especially as he has some attacking threat too. Frustratingly, he didn't make the squad in Gameweek 1 and 2, but assuming he can get himself fit I'll be happy to hold him in the short-term.
Leicester's Daniel Amartey (£4.0m) is my budget-friendly defender, enabling me to spend more money on my starting 11. He could keep his place short-term whilst Jannick Vestergaard (£5.0m) settles into the club and recovers from an injury. Like Tsimikas, his days are numbered.
The premium midfielders I started the season with were Bruno Fernandes (£12.1m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.6m). As we all know, they delivered well in Gameweek 1 then both blanked in Gameweek 2. They were both still heavily involved and I'm not worried about the returns flowing for these two.
I was considering freeing up some of these funds at some point for the likes of Romelu Lukaku (£11.5m) or Harry Kane (£12.5m) up front, but that'll be tough given how consistent both Bruno and Salah have been ever since they signed for their respective clubs - and how well they started the season.
With Edinson Cavani (£8.5m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) due to miss the start of the season, Man United's favourable opening fixtures and the fact Mason Greenwood (£7.5m) had the summer off (thank you Gareth Southgate), I think the young Englishman could do damage in the opening Gameweeks.
