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

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:

Willy Boly - £4.8m - Wolves

Boly is back in my thoughts because Adama Traore is likely to be sold this week which frees up a Wolves spot in my squad. Do I go for double defence alongside Matt Doherty or opt for Diogo Jota to partner Raul Jimenez in my front line? The form Jota is in, he's more likely to come in this week to replace the frustrating Danny Ings.

With four nice fixtures ahead, if I could get four Wolves assets, I would! Boly is great value, he's always a threat from set pieces.

 

Marcos Alonso - £6.0m - Chelsea
