First up, panellists from Fantasy Football Scout have shared their squad picks for the FPL Gameweek 1 tips. There’s some great insight here, especially for those planning to treat the opening gameweek as a Free Hit, with a planned early wildcard.


One of the big dilemmas dominating the conversation this weekend is around the captaincy. There are three premium players who form the front runners and FPL Visuals has done the statistical work to help make those informed decisions.


Selecting five defenders for Gameweek 1 has become a real problem, with activity in the transfer window causing confusion on the lineups for our Premier League clubs. The FPL Fan Show run through some of the key options.


Mo Salah has divided opinion in the community ahead of the new season, with many managers wondering whether to go with or without the Egyptian. It was the key topic of the FPL Wire podcast this week.

Approach to the season is equally as important as selecting the best players in FPL. To that end, FPL Tipz has compiled one top piece of advice from a number of high profile content creators in the community, including ourselves.


With many headaches coming to the fore with just a few days and hours remaining, there’s a handy Ultimate Guide available over on the Playmaker app courtesy of Neil Murray and his team. It’s well worth checking out ahead of the deadline. 


The most insightful piece of content this pre-season has been provided in this lecture from Joshua Bull, the winner of FPL last season. He’s a mathematical researcher and the applications of maths to FPL are incredible.


Strategy is going to be bigger than ever this season, partly because of the Blank Gameweek 1 for Manchester City, Aston Villa, Burnley and Manchester United. The Who Got The Assist? podcast look at four ways we can navigate this.


FPL Vs is back for the FPL Gameweek 1 tips, crunching the numbers on the historical records of some of our favourite assets for the respective fixtures they have this week. Things look promising for Harry Kane to get another goal against Everton.


The bookies odds can be very insightful when it comes to nailing down those selections and captaincy. FPL Salah provides the latest anytime goalscorer odds percentages, and it’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who leads the way from Mo Salah and Timo Werner.


It’s the same names in the frame for FPL Tips when it comes to his top three captaincy picks for the FPL Gameweek 1 tips. He looks at the key data for goals and assists, in an attempt to split this tempting trio ahead of the deadline.


As always, Ben Dinnery brings us the all-important injury news ahead of the deadline and some of the biggest news comes from Chelsea. Christian Pulisic will be available, but on the other hand, new signings Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell won’t make it.


One thing is for sure, we will be chopping and changing our premium players in the opening weeks of the season. While many have forecasted Gameweek 3 as the time to bring in a Manchester City player, a move for a Manchester United player is tricky. Bakar shares his thoughts.


Finally, Will Thomas has one of the best records in the game and he’s shared his Gameweek 1 team reveal over on the Fantasy Football Hub YouTube channel. It’s a 4-4-2 formation, with one of Chelsea’s new signings at the heart of things.
