Rate My Team - Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 1

11:41am Jul 26 2016

Welcome back to all Fantasy Premier League managers as we build up to the 2016/17 FPL season


That’s right folks, FPL is back in our lives and that can mean only only thing – It’s tinker-time!

Tens of thousands of managers have now reactivated their FPL accounts and set up mini-leagues, but, with that comes the stress and excitement of creating what you think, is the best possible 15-man squad to take you in to Gameweek one.

Our Twitter feed has been going crazy since the FPL released their new game for the 2016/17 season earlier this month, however, we’ve received so many teams to rate and questions to answer, we’ve decided to add a weekly Rate My Team discussion thread to the website.

This will allow you guys to upload screenshots of your team, or, simply post text-based questions in the comment boxes available. You’re able to reply to a users comments, or, post your own questions and concerns to the discussion thread.

You will need an FFPundits free account and username to access the discussion, which you can do-so here

The FFPundits team will review the Rate My Team discussion thread as frequently as we can, however, this is more for our users and fellow Fantasy Premier League managers to speak with each other, offer an opinion and enjoy both FPL and general conversation.

We look forward to seeing your teams and commenting on them in the very near future.

  1. my team is:
    Stones Valencia Morgan
    Bolasie Arnautovic Lallana Cabaye (he’s an absolute steal for 6m as he takes PK’s for Palace)
    Ibra Vardy Aguero

    Bench: Pickford Ibe Fosu-Mensah McAuley

    1. The best I can say is have a look at Sean’s team above – because unless you want Ibram instead of Vardy there is not much to do – and that change I would not STRONGLY recommend!

  2. Okay nearly there chaps, if you could RMT that would be great

    Forster (valdes)
    Valencia, stones, Morgan (padres, kone)
    Hazard, firmino, delafeuo, Redmond (fletcher)
    Ageuro, ibramavich, gray

    The last thing I’m tempted to do is swap ibramavich + firmino to mahrez and vardy. What you experts think is the best bet?

    Cheers all

    1. I am waiting to see after GW1 about Mkhitaryan because pre season games he has done nothing special and wad even noy in the Community Shield until extra time – however he has a great pedigree and is very much on my watch list

  3. mandada foster
    baines(5.5) shaw(5.5) stones(5) terry(5.5) smith(4)
    hazard(10) martial(9.5) redmond(6) deulofeu(6.5) rodwell(4.5)
    aguero(13) costa(9.5) negredo(6.5)

    rmt please

    My two concerns are whether there are better options than costa for 9.5m (ideally I wanted sturridge) and whether that is a good rotational paring of keepers.

    1. Firstly, I think you’re ok for keepers as long as they both start. I’d consider downgrading Costa for a 6.5m striker. See our article on budget strikers. Then you can upgrade in midfield e.g Deulofeu for Payet/Mahrez.

    1. As is always the case, it’s good because you have Aguero. But it seems to be missing something elsewhere. Mkhitaryan is most likely to do well, but Silva didn’t return as well last season. Maybe consider one of last years high scorers! Also, 2 Leicester defenders..

  4. Please rate my team and give me suggestions! What do you think about my team for start the season? What do you think about my deffenders, midfielders and forwards? Please help me! Thank you.

    1. That defence is solid and the forwards are very powerful. However you’re lacking a really good midfielder. I have also seen that Sigurdsson is unlikely to start the season

      1. Valencia has had a great start in pre season and will certainly play until he makes a mistake or two – so for next 3 weeks should be good to go and good fixtures too – otherwise Shaw
