Rey’s GW7 Preview

GW6 Review

It was a low scoring average this GW and unfortunately, I was not able to take advantage. My one transfer was Ayling to Rudiger, a move that is built for Chelsea’s favourable FDR swing.

With a low score of 46 points, we dropped from 149k to 184k.

GW7 could be the week where a lot of Wildcard chips will be used. However, with 2 x FT and the easy switches to the premium defenders, I am planning to hold on to my WC chip for a little longer.

Squad RAG Status

Each week, I will give a RAG (Red, Amber, Green) rating on the safety of the assets in my squad.

🟢  Green – Performing well/ certain keep

🟠  Orange – Wait and See

🔴  Red – Imminent departure



I see Sanchez as the best 4.5m GK in this seasons game. He plays behind a good defence at Brighton and has 2 x CS from his first 6 games which I am satisfied with considering his price 🟢


The Watford man recently started the last two games which is fantastic for a 4.0m GK. I see him more as an enabler but, when BRI play more difficult teams, I may just start Foster in the hope that he plays 🟢


Unless TAA is unavailable for any considerable amount of time, he shall stay all season 🟢


Having a cheap playing defender is always a blessing for FPL managers. Especially one that is as attacking as Tino and I feel the returns are imminent should he continue his impressive performances 🟢


I have been very disappointed with Shaw’s performances so far this season. Despite 16 attempted assists and 3 big chances created, I have lost patience with Shaw which coincides with the difficult fixtures from GW8 onwards 🔴


Transferred in Rudiger for the upcoming fixtures. I expect the German to play most of the games and in turn, Chelsea to keep multiple clean sheets 🟢


I started the season with White and intended to start him against NOR & BUR respectively. He has returned with 2 x CS which I am delighted with at just 4.4m 🟢


Season keeper, that is all 🟢


Jota finally returned after weeks of frustration. However, with the return of Firmino, and matches against MCI & MUN in the next 3, I will likely remove the Portuguese and spread the costs amongst my squad accordingly 🔴


I kept hold of the Brazilian despite the concerns that he may have missed the last game. He returned my faith with a goal and I am excited for the upcoming matches which are favourable for Leeds United 🟢

Cheap enabler 🟠


The Algerians status has changed this week as I was impressed with his movement against LEE. I was previously concerned that the return of Antonio may have hindered his attacking threat. However, the below touch maps during the game give me optimism that he is one of the main creative assets for WHU going forward 🟢


Similar to Benrahma, Ivan is an asset whose status has changed after an impressive performance against LIV. The below radar shows how integral Toney was to all of Brentford’s attacks during the game 🟢


A disappointing captaincy blank for Ronaldo, especially as he did not take the last-minute penalty in the defeat to AVL. I am likely to captain him against EVE and then switch him to Lukaku 🔴


With 5 goals and 4 assists, Antonio is performing like a premium asset. I intend to play the Jamaican till he “breaks” – an incredible asset when fit and firing 🟢

GW7 Preview

With 2 x FT and 0.4m in the bank, I am in an ideal position this week.

Before making any transfers, this is what the team looks like;

As I will certainly make at least one transfer, these are my thoughts;

  • Jota out for either Sarr or Gallagher
  • Take out Shaw now and replace him with Alonso. However, I still have a lingering feeling that a Chilwell start is imminent
  • Bring in Lukaku this week for Ronaldo

Of course, this is subject to change but for updates, check out my Twitter rey_qur for my finalised team.

Good Luck with this GW and please leave your comments below.
