1. Cheaters

The Always Cheating podcast back with plenty of advice for the Gameweek 8 preview. They are in town for some big games this weekend and have lots of discussion on heavy hitters for Gameweek 8 and beyond, including Harry Kane.

2. Tips

The FPL Tips watchlist has been updated for the Gameweek 8 preview, with a Manchester City midfielder seeing very low ownership levels, despite returns in 4 consecutive Premier League games. Is he becoming essential?

3. Vs

Fixture swings are adding to the heavy hitter debate, with Liverpool’s schedule turning for the better after Gameweek 8. Manchester City have one of the trickiest upcoming schedules, according to the FPL Vs fixture charts.

4. Dinnery

Spurs may have the easiest fixture for our Gameweek 8 preview, but they’ve already had some key players ruled out. The picture could get even more challenging, with a Champions League game against Barcelona tonight.

5. Tinkermen

The TinkerMen have produced a fantastic graphic for the Gameweek 8 preview, charting the attacking merits of the 4 big hitters that managers are scrambling to squeeze into their squads. Will this make things clearer?

6. Editor

Harry Kane may be top of the purchasing list for Gameweek 8, his home record against newly promoted teams is far from exciting. It’s certainly something worth considering for those looking to jump on board with just this weeks fixture in mind.


Salah’s ownership is on the decrease, with a tough fixture this week and patchy away form. Fantasy YIRMA have a guest post for the Gameweek 8 preview, charting whether we should stick or twist with the most expensive player in the game.

8. Connect

Harry Kane looks to be a highly popular option for captaincy in Gameweek 8, increasing his appeal for a transfer in. However, the captain metric over on the FPL Connect blog suggests that we would be wrong to overlook another premium contender.

9. Hints

Gameweek 8 has been prolific in the past for Fantasy Premier League captaincy: particularly back in 2014 and 2015, where Sergio Aguero managed 4+ goals. FPL Hints suggests that Harry Kane could join this elite club.

10. General

With Kane being the centre of most FPL Discussions this week, it’s no surprise for the debate to take centre stage on the FPL General’s 59th Minute Podcast. Listen to find out his opinion on whether to go all in on Kane.

11. Tool

As mini league overall positions start to settle down and managers look to get an edge over their rivals, there’s plenty of helpful tools in the new Premier League Tools, Mini-League Analyzer. Will a move for Kane provide a differential edge?
