FPL Audit has an intriguing cheap defensive pairing for those managers with an active wildcard this week. These Brighton and Watford assets dovetail nicely throughout the season.
??Cheap Defender Rotation??
?Dunk & Kiko Femenia?✅
?As discovered by @FPLMax22 (below) you can avoid a ‘red’ fixture all season by rotating! ?
?Both are bps magnets so expect bonus when they keep a cleanie! ?

Andrey shares the all important statistics for the Gameweek 3 tips. Sterling has the prowess of taking shots in the box, but it’s Kane that faces the weaker defence.
• Shots Inside the Box (On Target)
• Chances Created (Big Chances Created)
• Shots Conceded Inside the Box
• Big Chances Conceded

Sterling looks an essential selection for those managers on a wildcard this week. His record is impeccable against weak opposition who he will come up against in his next run of games.
Half of Raheem Sterling's FPL returns last season (16/32) came in meetings with seven of his next nine opponents (Villa and Norwich were in the Championship).
11 starts, 2 sub apps, 10 goals, 6 assists.

FPL Prince has been mightily impressed with the way Manchester City have started the season. A double up on KDB and Sterling could prove fruitful for FPL managers.
Man City’s next 4 fixtures ?
1. Bournemouth (A)
2. Brighton (H)
3. Norwich (A)
4. Watford (H)
Maybe we should be considering an attacking double up of KDB and Sterling! ? #FPL
