Andy Martin returns with his three tips for the upcoming gameweek. Among the discussion is defenders once more, with Lundstram seeing fire sales and a warning not to move to Spurs assets who were somewhat lucky last weekend.
3 Tips for GW26.
1. Keep the faith in Grealish. He has been unlucky not to register a return in the last 2 weeks. I would hold him through BGW28 too.
2. If you’re selling Lundstram and already have a Sheff Utd defender then go Stephens.
3. Don’t buy Spurs defenders.

Top of FPL Goat’s advice list is to remain confident in Jack Grealish. He was unlucky not to deliver any fantasy returns last time out against Bournemouth and could see plenty of success against this Spurs defence.
Advice for GW26
1. Don't bench Grealish vs Spurs
2. If you have John Fleck, play him
3. If you have a Saints defender, Start him
4. Newcastle to keep a clean sheet against Arsenal this GW
5. Sadio Mane will be a great differential captain for GW26 if he's fit

FPL Swede takes on the big conversation in the community this week – should we risk bringing in players who have a blank in just two games time? There are contrasting opinions but it’s certainly got the community talking.
Buying a player that has a blank GW28? (Thread) ?
MCI, SHU, ARS and AVL all have some popular FPL options right now. This leaves us managers questioning…

FPL Tips has updated the watchlist for the FPL Gameweek 26 Tips. With many other premiums failing to deliver, Heung-Min Son is back in the frame, helped largely by the two goals scored in most recent games.
? NEW #FPL VIDEO ?
Ahead of #GW26, Mo Salah (16) is the only midfielder able to better Heung-Min Son (11) for shots inside the box over the last 4 Gameweeks.

FPL Drew highlights the big dilemma surrounding captaincy this week, especially when it comes to our trusty Liverpool assets. There’s a huge gap between the deadline and Liverpool’s fixture, so it could be safer to give a Man City player the armband.
8th February – GW26 Deadline
9th February – MCI vs WHU followed by a 2 week break.
15th February – NOR vs LIV, a full 7 days after locking our #FPL team in – then a UCL fixture 3 days later.
I will be looking to Manchester City for my captaincy this week, not Liverpool. pic.twitter.com/giulceCKd7

When we consider captaincy, it’s important to remember the defences who we can target our premium players to return against. It’s a surprise to see Manchester Untied particularly vulnerable in this list from Andrew Gower.
280 #FPL double digit hauls have been scored against:
Man U 19
West Ham 16
Sheff Utd 12
Man City 11
