Gameweek 1 – Picking your first team!

The League starts this weekend (Aug 8), and this is your last chance to make as many changes as you want. You may have a decent lineup using “Auto-complete”, but if you’re looking to make your team slightly more competitive, we’re here to give you some last minute advice.

If you’ve never made transfers before, please watch this 5 minute video that shows you how to use the FPL site.

Now if you’re looking for whom to pick for your first team, there’s 3 ways to do this

1. Auto-complete – Safe, but not very efficient. Won’t give you good value players, and you’ll have too many expensive players sitting on your bench. What you want ideally is Expensive on the field, and Cheap on the bench.

2. Use this guide we created, that will let you create a solid team for 3 Defenders, 4 Mids, and 3 Forwards. Your starter options are on the left, and your bench options are on the right.

3. Check out these template teams we’ve created and use them for inspiration to create your own team, mixing and matching the players you like from this bunch.

REMEMBER to always MAKE and CONFIRM your transfers when you’re done, and then go to PICK TEAM to set your LINEUP and choose your CAPTAIN.

Good luck for Gameweek 1! Remember, FPL is a huge game of luck, and anything can happen. There are no guarantees, but just good strategies that have better chances of success!

Stay tuned for more.
