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 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?

 

Players Added:

George Baldock - £4.6m - Sheffield United

I've been very impressed by Baldock this season bombing forward from right wing back. He's got two attacking returns already and should have more. The Blades have a great run of fixtures ahead. I like the idea of a Lundstram/Baldock double up in defence.

 

Matt Doherty - £6.0m - Wolves

The Irishman is over-priced this season after his heroics in 2018/19 but he shouldn't be ignored. Watching the Wolves highlights every week, Doherty always finds himself in goal scoring positions. At just 3.2% ownership, he could be an explosive differential for those willing to fork out the cash for him.

 

Brandon Williams - £4.0m - Manchester United

If this kid can keep his place at left back in the United team, he will be an absolute bargain. He's completed 90 minutes in the last two matches and scored a great goal in the 3-3 draw with Sheffield United. Hopefully Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will stick with him.

 

Serge Aurier - £4.9m - Spurs

Aurier could be a steal at £4.9m in a Jose Mourinho defence. He provided an assist for Harry Kane in Gameweek 13 and followed that up with a goal and another assist in the Champions League on Tuesday night. He's looking good!
