FPL General is an incredibly successful FPL veteran with three top 500 finishes. Every week he takes us through his FPL Watchlist of players he has his eye on for future transfers.
The Watchlist feature on the FPL website is a very handy tool which most managers don't use. To add a player to your Watchlist, simply click on that player while you are on the 'Transfers' page and you will see 'Add to Watchlist'. To remove them, it's the same process. To view the players on your Watchlist, on the 'Transfers' page, click on the drop-down box that says 'All Players' and you will find 'Watchlist'.
After a Gameweek has finished, I go through all twenty teams individually to see what each player has scored that week and add the players I am interested in to my Watchlist. The players I'm no longer interested in due to injury, loss of form or tough fixtures get removed each week.
In general, I like to keep my Watchlist to a maximum of 30 players. I don't include goalkeepers because that's a position that doesn't change very often.
The main benefit of using the Watchlist feature is that it helps to avoid bandwagons. When I go to make my transfers on a Friday night, I look at the 30 or so players on my Watchlist rather than scrolling through teams. This avoids a scenario where I wake up on a Saturday morning to find Theo Walcott or Andy Carroll in my team because if they're not on my Watchlist, there's no chance I'll bring them in (even if I've had a few beers). It saves a lot of time too.
So which players have I added to it this week and which players have been removed?
FPL Watchlist - Players Added:
Chris Wood - £6.1m - Burnley
A player I’d love to own this weekend for the Norwich fixture. I can’t justify selling any of Jimenez, Rashford or Jesus to get him though and I want to bank a transfer to have flexibility for late transfers in Gameweek 38 if we get early team news, particularly for Man City who face Norwich at home on the final day.
Those of you who still have Calvert-Lewin or someone underperforming like him up front, moving to Wood this week is a no-brainer. He’s on penalties and has had more big chances this season than the likes of Aguero, Aubameyang, Ings and Jimenez.
David Silva - £7.4m - Manchester City
