Review of FPL Gameweek 3

The completion of Gameweek 3 sees Liverpool maintain their 100% record, while Man City, Leicester and Wolves remain unbeaten. Watford lost all 3 games, and one must wonder if they can replicate their last season form where they finish 11th in the table coupled with a run to the FA Cup final.

We now look at some of the bandwagons forming. Do note that the prices of these popular players will continue to rise, as price rises are largely correlated to the number of transfers in.

Goalkeepers

  1. De Gea – 5.6m – 537,728
  2. Ederson – 6.1m – 418,646
  3. Adrian – 4.5m – 278,442
  4. Pope – 4.5m – 277,124
  5. Ryan – 4.6m – 269,915

Defenders

  1. Lundstram – 4.1m – 705,002
  2. Kelly – 4.1m – 407,293
  3. Wan-Bissaka – 5.6m – 368,134
  4. Digne – 6.0m – 357,600
  5. Pieters – 4.6m – 346,341

Midfielders

  1. Martial – 7.7m – 861,921
  2. Sterling – 12.2m – 816,673
  3. De Bruyne – 9.7m – 773,796
  4. Cantwell – 4.7m – 679,591
  5. Ceballos – 5.6m – 652,750

Forwards

  1. Pukki – 6.9m – 1,841,587
  2. Rashford – 8.7m – 695,600
  3. Barnes – 6.6m – 541,658
  4. Kane – 11.1m – 470,158
  5. Origi – 5.5m – 283,431

Amazingly, more than 1.8m managers has transferred in Pukki, which translates to about 28% of total number of managers. He has also risen by 0.4m, which is a trend that is set to continue.

When looking at this list, one should also be careful of who not to transfer in, like Origi, who is set to return to the bench following Mane’s return.

A couple of other players to be mindful would be Kelly (who would face competition when Tomkins and Sakho returns from injury) and Pieters (with first choice left back from last season Charlie taylor waiting in the wings).

Cantwell is a very popular pick at his price bracket but if you are looking for a fifth midfielder that you are going to bench most of the time, you should look at 4.5m like Luiz (AST), Stephens (BHA), Hayden (NEW) who is going to save you the 0.2m.
