In this weekly series of posts, I am going to manage an FPL team using the Hub’s RMT Tool. The idea is to help Hub members understand and use it better, as well as road test it in order to improve it over time.
Last week’s results (GW14)
GW14’s post didn’t get published unfortunately but the transfer made was Abraham to Jimenez and the latter’s assist took the gameweek score to 55 resulting in a green arrow up to 152K from 175K. The Abraham sale was popular too with the elite managers we track to power the RMT Tool, the Chelsea strikers elite ownership dropped from 96% to 24%. On average the elite managers scored 51 points and and dropped rank slightly from 472K to 503K (median rank 298K to 350K).
RMT Tool Analysis
Emotions need to be left at the door for this one. Raheem Sterling has been sold. A move away from the City forward is suggested in all three of the transfer options and with two free transfers available it has to happen. Sterling’s elite ownership has plummeted from nearly 100% a few weeks ago to just 24% as of GW14. In his place arrives Heung-Min Son. Admittedly there’s a strong case for Dele Alli too, and we may end up flipping to him in coming weeks, but as it stands right now Son is ahead in the pecking order. All that Sterling cash needs to be splashed of course so we’ve made a major squad upgrade to replace Greenwood to Danny ings.
Team for GW15
For captaincy, we turn to the @FFootballHub Captain Poll and no surprises Jamie Vardy is the emphatic winner this week. Ings arrival brings with an immediate bench headache. The Saints strikers start of course but there’s a good case to join him from each of Mount, Tomori and a resurgent Todd Cantwell. Whilst Tomori seems the safest option and Cantwell the biggest differential, for some reason I’ve faith in Mount. Good luck, and enjoy the footy.
