Who's the must haves for next season guys?

Early doors i'm thinking Trent, KDB, Sterling.

Outsiders are Greenwood, Foden & Pulisic.

I get better value from Liverpool defenders than i do their attack.

Let's see what the prices are first!

If TAA is suddenly 8m, he is too expensive. Similar if KDB and Sterling are 12.5 along with Salah and Mane.
It'll be a game of gamble having the right 1 or 2 of that latter 4 at the right time.

Greenwood will probably boot up to 7.5m or so

TAA at 8 million is good value, he out scored every striker.

Has anyone put their team in this website?

That luck statistic I don't seem to understand fully.

https://fplreview.com/season-review/
That's some heavy data analytics!

If I am reading it right then I got fecked over on an xG basis - actual rank 101k, xG rank 19k

Captain choice is such a big factor and I get it wrong far too much - might just choose one and rarely change next season.

I think TAA, de Bruyne and Bruno will be the players to build round next season. A lot will depend on transfers though.

The former, because he is the only defender capable of massive hauls from Pool clean sheets at home and assists/set pieces.

The latter two because they are both so central to everything their teams do.

Problem with FPL is a good start is vital, and there's a fair bit of guesswork with the cheaper players you have to pick. Always some that had a decent season last time but fade to nothing the next.

Can't be as bad as the last start though.

Agree with KDB and TAA. I think they'll be worth whatever they cost. De Bruyne was crazily underpriced coming off an injury ridden season.

Bruno surely has an unsustainable ppg metric that theoretically should put him in the same price bracket as Salah, Mane, Sterling and KDB. Can't wait to see how much he is.

Dropped from 23k to 65k in the last 3 GW's. Disappointing but still my best finish yet.

Trent, De Bruyne and Bruno are all on set pieces too (the latter two on pens as well). They're gonna be pretty template.

Trent £8m
KDB £12.5m
Bruno £11m

?
Yes these 3 are the first ones down - possibily Mahrez or another City asset. No David Silva can only mean more minutes for those midfielders right? Or pep will just feck us over some other way.

Had a proper rollercoaster final day in my draft league! I had pretty my resigned it to finishing 2nd. My friend in first was 58 points clear and we didnt allow any transfers all season. Everything went my way on the day and wrong for him - Liverpool players not starting, Evans red card...then Mane came off the bench and scored.

I got 78 points against his 26 once all bonuses came through and he beat be by 6 points! It was a fun day messaging each other back and forth though

That big of a jump!? KDB was only 9.5m this year.
Yeah easily a £2m/£2.5m increase on that price. I think likely £12m. Sterling was £12m this year on the back of 234 points.

KDB's starting price this year was based on an injury hit season where he played 968 mins and scored a mere 59 pts.

I think KDB is so important that he always needs to start for them. Watching them at times he only seemed to play a bit deeper when David Silva would play so that can only be a good thing for him FPL wise.

Wait and see who they buy but yeah both Silva and Sane gone leaves them a bit short potentially although Foden seems to now be getting more game time.

3 at the back next season. 1 Liverpool, 1 Burnley, 1 Sheffield to start with. GK go cheap. I don't think it's going to be possible to fit KDB, Bruno and 1 of Salah/Mane. You're gonna have to pick 2 out of the 3.

As important as it is to fit some of these big hitters in, you also need to find those starting 4m defenders. They are key.
While Lundstram was an insane find early doors, and that might not happen again, you need to be on the starting 4m defenders that succeed early doors, both to get their growth, and to facilitate the rest.

Sounds about right. Trent will be value up until 9m or 10 imo if he performs this way all season. Strange to say really, but he gets more points than so many top attackers

Definitely. It probably won't be anyone you expect either, which is where the big bit of luck comes in at the start of the season.

Trying to remember if there has ever been a defender who racked up more points in a FPL season

Trent will only be value if Liverpool continue to perform. There were real signs of a diminishing level in the second half of the season. If that is the case he becomes a more marginal choice depending on the price. The 3m premium over someone like Wan Bissaka could be used to upgrade MF or CF with more likely levels of return. For example, if united secure Sancho then to me Wan Bissaka goes up in value as his likelihood to assist will increase and that won't be inherent in his price.

Robertson 213 last year.
fair enough - although that was mostly down to a lot more clean sheets. I was more thinking about anyone matching the frankly ridiculous attacking stats (4 goals, 15 assists) that TAA has put out from full back

You won't be able to afford those, I'm fairly certain.
I'd guess the cost of those guys could be a minimum of

10,10,7.5,12.5,12.5,9 leaving you 38.5m to get the other 9 players in

I think Werner could be the best value striker. I can't imagine him being in the Auba, Kane, Aguero price bracket. He'll defo get a good share of goals considering he'll be chelseas best choice striker by far. Also, with Havertz supplying him should be a good combo.

Martial will most likely be changed from a midfielder to a striker. Again could be good value for money considering his price will be tier 2 for striker options.

Havertz could be an absolute steal. Can't see him being the same price of Mane, Salah, Sterling, KDB......but could post figures very close to these lot by the end of the season.

Might Werner start out wide though?
And I've been burnt by getting straight on big signings from abroad before. Sometimes they need a bit of adjusting time. Salah was the opposite, so we'll see!

Utd actually had some great value defenders this season. I had AWB from the start at 5.5m I think. We had a hell of a lot of clean sheets and bonus points defensively.
I had Maguire, as he tends to score a a few headers, as well as being the main threat at every set piece, but he's had a lot of near misses.
