As Gameweek 1 squads come together, our community members each share a watchlist.
The watchlist tool is a handy feature for managers to construct their sides from a given pool of players.
Make sure that you join the community in our Mini League. To be a part of The FF Community Shield, with scoring from Gameweek 1, manually enter our league code: gim566.
We have 11 retro shirts to giveaway over the course of the season, courtesy of Score Draw Retro. There’s 10 Manager of the Month prizes, plus a prize for the overall winner.
If you’ve a slot to fill in your current draft, Neil Murray’s Watchlist is essential. He’s listed his favourite player in each position at each price point for your perusal.
0) Looking for an enabler or have X remaining in your budget for a D/M/F & don't know who to get? Maybe this will help…
Here's my current favourite option at every price point in every position:

The FPL Editor has a watchlist of players that won’t fit into his Gameweek 1 squad but who are under consideration. It’s handy to have one of these lists when tinkering.
A list of players that I currently cannot quite squeeze in/undecided on:
B. Silva 8.0
No apparent place for them in my side at the minute, but I know they have a big score in them

Adam Hopcroft showcases a watchlist of the best squad players on current ownership levels that are within the fantasy budget. It creates a 4-4-2 formation for those squads.
Template United – Best squad based on ownership & in budget
% rounded up/down
B. Silva 29%
How many do you have?

FPL Captain has created an excellent thread identifying players at every single price point in the game. This makes a very handy watchlist for fantasy managers.
Got ? to spend but don’t know where to spend it on that one final player for your team?
This thread is going to identify, in my opinion, the best options at each price point in the game!
Feel free to share if you find it useful ?

FPL Andy has a core of players on his watchlist which are in every single draft. There’s Triple Liverpool, plus bargain basement bench fodder Button and Dendoncker.

FPL General is a huge advocate of using a watchlist and sets out his watchlist players of choice in his debut podcast for the new Fantasy Premier League 2019/20 season.
First podcast for the new season is now available. Enjoy folks ? https://t.co/1TVHUtFlMa

FPL Hints sums up the Twitter template with his latest watchlist. There’s warning signs here though, especially if high ownership Aguero get’s off to a good start.
We're all going to have 2 Liverpool defenders
We're all going to get Digne
We're all going to have Salah
We're all going to own Dendoncker (apparently)
We're all going to avoid Aguero but have a BOU forward

Piglet has a watchlist of just two players. These stars could easily be the highest two scoring players at the end of the season and look essential for those FPL squads.
Here's the only two players you HAVE TO HAVE in your team by GW1.
Premier League 17/18:
Salah: 32 goals, 12 assists.
Sterling: 18 goals, 17 assists.
Premier League 18/19:
Salah: 22 goals, 12 assists.
Sterling: 17 goals, 15 assists.
Can't be ignored.

FPL Prince extends the list to four players: there’s no Salah in here, but the Liverpool full-backs and Everton’s Lucas Digne join Raheem Sterling within the mix of those considered.
Which 4 players won’t be leaving your draft team no matter what?
These are mine! ☝️ #FPL

FPL Family have also showcased their core of players. Two Liverpool assets comes as no surprise from fan Lee, but Josh King and Gylfi Sigurdsson are also ones to be considered.
In my many, MANY #FPL drafts so far, there’s a handful of players that haven’t moved…
Who are yours? ? pic.twitter.com/HewY0enQpT
