FPL Gents preview all the big talking points for the FPL Gameweek 8 tips, with an update to the watchlist. There’s a focus on defenders here who are dominating the transfers in this week, while looking at their anytime return (goal or assist) potential for this weekend.


Jack Grealish has seen a significant increase in ownership as the season has progressed and that comes as no surprise given his output in this campaign. He’s among the top FPL points scoring midfielders, and is almost bettering his record from 2019/20 after just six games.

FPL Swede brings the top five player topics for the FPL Gameweek 8 tips, with Chelsea defenders and Danny Ings replacements both on the agenda. There’s a wealth of forward options at a variety of budgets, but Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Timo Werner are the top options right now.


The bookies odds can be very insightful when it comes to nailing down those selections and captaincy.

Pierre-Emerick Aubamayenag is the surprise leader, ahead of popular pick Harry Kane.

West Ham

The Fantasy Football Pundits famous captaincy poll for the FPL Gameweek 8 tips looks to be a two horse race, and it’s a similar lineup of players in our thoughts to the last few weekends. Getting this decision right could be decisive: one thing is for sure – all eyes are on Spurs.
