Top Tips For A Successfull Season 2019/20
via Let's Talk FPL
What is going on everyone my name’s Andy welcome back to another FPL video and today we’re talking fantasy many top tips these are things I’ve kind of learned over the last nine 10 years of playing FBO which help have a good season obviously there are some things you can affect sometimes you just get unlucky but this will try and narrow down the chances of that happening sure there will be some stuff I miss and I’m sure you guys have got loads of your own really good tips as well so let’s get that discussion going in the comments below.
Leave your favourite one two maybe three or four or even five tips which help you have a good season and then everyone else is maybe new at FBO wants to try and improve their rank and take a look at that and obviously if you do enjoy the video make sure to give it a like. Otherwise we’ll jump straight into it. So first up is to be flexible in a lot of people say this every single year. They’re going to go into the season and be more flexible then they’re not doing that maybe holding grudges maybe not being happy with things that went wrong and just basically sometimes you get like rage trances and things like that.
So I think be flexible but also be a bit more cautious. So if something goes wrong for you it was will happen. You’re not going to likely unless you’re going to win FBI which is really hard to do. Then you’re probably not going to make every single decision right. You want to make his means as right as possible and get that high kind of top 10 K top folk finish to get actually everything right would be pretty damn difficult. So don’t panic if you get things wrong just make sure you’re flexible in your thinking so if something goes wrong on the weekend don’t make your transfer straight away wait until the end of the week to make them they will hold grudges as well.
A lot of people hear this all the time. Explain. Didn’t do well for me when I wanted to do well with me. I’m never getting them again. Maybe there’s one or two times when you’ve brought in a player like color most and springs to mind maybe richness in what they’ve been doing really well you’ve brought them in and they’ve stopped doing well. Well they didn’t just do that on purpose. Don’t hold a grudge. If they look like very good options at the start of the season which I think both of those aforementioned players do Wilson and Richardson then there’s no reason not to bring them in.
If you think they’re going to do well so don’t hold grudges take hits when needed. Be flexible with hits. Don’t just say I’m not taking any all season. Don’t be in a situation where you’re taking one every week take them when they’re needed. For me it is needed when there’s lots of injuries you don’t really have a good squad that you want to put out when you want to make maybe one or two transfers and take a hit if it’s for the long term. So you’re just gonna to bring a player for one week then they’ve got to do really well in that week to repay the head when it gets tough to predict that every week.
You look at anywhere which does basically predictions on who’s going to be the high scores that week is very rare that a man every week. So don’t take a hit for a player you’re going to then transfer out straight away. If someone you really want to bring in for someone who’s doing awful you want to bring in a player who is maybe in a bit of a high patch and scoring really well and you’re going to want to keep it for the next four five six game weeks and definitely if you need to take the hit and do it just be flexible don’t restrict yourself to one way of playing or the other and then just trust yourself if you know if you’ve done something wrong like I said You mean to get things wrong and be flexible in changing your approach changing your plan changing your strategy just trust yourself don’t go and there’s obviously a lot of stuff you can go out and read about FBO And the irony is you’re doing that right now by watching this.
There is a lot of sauce out there but ultimately you need to trust yourself. Be flexible enough in your thinking and you’re all going to make the right decision every now and again hopefully more often than not. And just back yourself and just go with it and you’ll hear a lot of people talking about that because a lot of times people will just watch and read and listen to too much stuff and they let other people make the decision for them. Yes you should look consume FBI content at the end of the day is your choice to make and trust yourself and be flexible so everyone has a different opinion on prices and whether you should build value at the start of the season so then have a better team going forward and more money to play with.
I’m not really a fan of Chasing value if you picked the right players they’ll build value anyway for you start the season. That’s probably the only time I will make an early transfer for a price rise because of the every point one you miss at the start of the season. If a player goes up by point one million or down one point one million and that does affect your ability to buy the next player but that’s going to happen at some point you can’t go for the whole season making any transfers just to chase those point one millions and once a play it does go down or does go up point one million then it doesn’t matter if the next four do that as well it’s going to cost you an extra half a million anyway which is probably what you’ll have to make by sending a player to be able to make that purchase.
So I don’t chase value that often. I do think in the opening kind of 3 4 weeks is probably an okay time to do it. But you want to leave your decisions as late as possible because you can get extra info by the end of the week. Info from training maybe minor injuries that have been picked up possibly team news from journalists and stuff like that. So I don’t like chasing Bonnie too much even at the start of the season personally. I think if you’re going to do it that might be the best time.
Don’t let a price dictate your decision unless you’re absolutely sure that the play you what you’re thinking of bringing in is one you want to get. Don’t do it just because the price is going up or down. I just think sometimes it’s better to let fate decide if it goes up it goes up you get a different player if you’re absolutely sure that’s the one you want there’s no real other matches to play like sometimes players have cut games or European Games. The potential to get injured in something like that offers some team news to come up for.
So for example they might get injured but another player might get in your shoes. They’re going to play further forward or someone else is going to come in who might be a better option. So I don’t even price changes to the to the end of the week. Well sorry transit to the end of the week I don’t really worry about pricing too much. If you do want to make them especially again at the start of the season when maybe that’s the best time to chase valley making no price rises and falls as soon as the season comes along.
As sites like FPL statistics don’t curve the UK which will monitor price rises and we’ll give you an indication of when a play is going to rise or fall in price down they’re not necessary 100 percent accurate or high they get better as the season goes on they give you a good indication but I wouldn’t let him make the decision for you because suddenly you see a play is about to rise and then don’t you bring them in and they might get injured or you might get some teen years which affects or would’ve affected that decision and then you might regret it.
So that’s my personal opinion on a lot of people. I’ve got different opinions and I’m sure they’ll leave a comment below let me know. So yeah let me know what you think. But for me I don’t really worry about price rises too much especially after the cut in the first few game weeks so I can’t believe I’ve made a separate video about chipset because they are something I could talk about for ages so I’ll try and keep this brief and basic give you my opinion on when I will probably look to use the chips not exact game weeks but kind of a particular strategy that I have of you don’t have to agree with this is my my opinion.
So while cons you get two you get one in the first half of the season and one in the second half of the season for the second wildcard. So for the second half of the season I will save it around blanks and double game. So this should be a round game with twenty eight to thirty five double game weeks is basically when a team has missed out in a blank game weeks and maybe they’ve had a European fixture or a cup semi-final or whatever it might be because they couldn’t play their Premier League game and it is rearranged.
They don’t play in that week and then it gets moved to a different game week where they’ll play twice so that’s a double game. So they can be quite hard to manage and they can also be quite profitable for points especially in this double game. So I save my wildcard around that time for the first wildcard. I think there’s a couple of ways you can play it. I don’t think there’s any harm doing after three or four game we should get a lot of info in these in those opening game weeks maybe players performing better than expected worse than expected.
Maybe as a planet star that we weren’t expecting and just general form and stuff like that formations and you do get some of that in preseason and not necessarily all of it. So once you know that much you know what mistakes you’ve made in your opening squad you could change in the first three or four game weeks but if you do well I don’t see any harm in saving and after that point you basically use it when you need it when you’ve got kind of four or five players that may be injured not doing well.
There’s other players coming into form that you don’t have any if you need to make a whole bunch of changes. It’s pretty bad sturdy Walcott especially if it’s early on. So that’s what I tend to use it free hit is basically like the wild card you can completely switch your team as long as it’s within budget you’re only get it for that one game week. So if you’re in game okay and you hit your free hit bond for game week nine you’ll get a different team. But then for game we tend to revert back to the game with eight teams.
So again I tend to save this for around the blank double game weeks is a little bit boring having to wait that long to use it but they really help manage those blank double game weeks. Bench Press you basically want to use after a wild card or maybe even in game week one you want to be able to set up your bench for the best fixtures you’re probably in reality is only worth 16 to 20 points so I wouldn’t completely overhaul your squad just to make the most of it. I tend to use it towards the end of the season again for those wildcards because we’ve built up a bit of team value when we can have better benches.
I don’t see an issue of using it in game week one if you’ve got a decent enough bench if you like me and you put in all your money in the first eleven you’ve got bench players that might not even play then it’s obviously not worth it. If you’re going for a different strategy then you absolutely can then triple current and I think it’s fine on a single or double game. I will save it for the double game because I want my high of trying to hit that big big Captain score but it doesn’t always work like that.
I’ve never had more than nine points and I’m absolutely rubbish. There are people that are captain the likes of McGuire Sanchez and Kane who have hit 25 points which is seventy five in total so the triple cuts basic gives you one extra Captain score over your normal cards and before players inform their they’re playing a weak. It’s a single game. There is no harm in doing that either. Patience is so important an Afghan I’ve kind of already touched. I think not make you rage Transformers is almost a skill in a transfer would basically be when a player doesn’t do too well for you at the weekend.
Maybe they miss a glorious chance a blank for the second week in a row and you really want to transfer them out on Saturday even though you’ve got the whole week to get more information. So I tend to try and be as patient as possible players will not always score when you want. Obviously you want to bring them in against the weaker teams and the better fixtures would those score but it doesn’t always happen in the first game with the second game we can generally when you bring a player in you want to do it for some when you want to keep the kind of four to six game weeks and really then it’s what do they score over all those game weeks rather than what do they score in the opening game.
Yes it is much more fun and much easier if they do score in the first game we could get an assist or a clean sheet or whatever it might be but it doesn’t always happen. Don’t make drastic changes if you have got a plan. Then of course be flexible. But if you’re completely going against what you originally thought about just because of one one thing that happened or a couple of things that happened that didn’t quite go to plan. They’re making drastic changes is probably something you should kind of basically just rest on.
Just think about it for a few days come back and see if you still want to make the same decision. Generally if you’re annoyed at FBO the next day it won’t quite feel so bad so try and not make any drastic changes straight away. I’d like to make final decisions late again I’ve already kind of touched on this by the end of the week. Basically if you can wait till Saturday you’ve pretty much got all the information you’re going to get and there will be times when an injury won’t be spoken about or manager has a press conference.
Then they have a training session and a player picks up an injury. You don’t hear about it and that is frustrating and you’re trying to give yourself the best chance. I always try to make wise decisions on a Friday or Saturday have an idea of what you want to do but wait so you’ve got all the info to do it. And just remember that you made that choice for a reason. If you build your game with one score and it doesn’t do very well in the opening game we just remember you pick those players for more than just the opening game.
Yes. If after two or three weeks they’re still up for maybe you could while caused transferring some of them out but have some patience. Lastly and I know some people hate this they’ll say it’s boring but have a safe captaincy option one or two for me. For example party start the season with Salah and Sterling that’s why Salah is on the screen. Reliability is key. They can make a bad week okay and a good week. Great. Simply by holding. Maybe if they score 10 points they get 20.
Thanks to a hat trick that’s maybe 30 points plus I think go for safe captaincy is the best way. If you want to go for differentials and punts this stuff that you can do that with other players. I just think if you’re maybe putting on the play you’re not sure is gonna do well. Maybe you’re hoping they’ll do well they’ve got a really good fixture. For example Lucas Moore in Game 1 if he plays Aston Villa a home is a great fixture but he’s already a pump because you’re not sure exactly how they’re going to line up since then captained them as well as an even bigger punt.
You’re kind of relying on him not only do him well even when you’re not too sure but then to also get a for captaincy. So players like Salah and Sterling came even maybe a Guerra they score points reliably and I think as much as we want those big holes there is kind of 15 plus points holes get anything from your captain from kind of seven or eight points and above is great. And these kind of players like Salah like Stern and do that more often or not. So I think over the course of the seasons it’s really good.
I need to go for safe captaincy. Of course if you’re chasing towards the end of the season you might want to go a bit different from the off. I’d definitely like to play it safe so that’s my top tips. I’m sure you’ve got loads more. Like I said at the start of the video if you do you make sure you leave a comment below.
