Welcome to a brand new feature on the FPL Surgery Podcast website. What the Slackers Say will be a weekly article of comments and summaries from FPL Surgery Slack members about that week’s podcast. These will include individual highlights from the podcast and will help FPL players make their team decisions. There is wealth of knowledge and talent in the FPL Slack and a number of players who have consistently achieved ranks inside the top 1% in FPL.
Here’s what some of the Slackers have got to say leading up to GW1…
I liked the calm rationale given to each position as they talked through their current drafts and alternative options. I’ve listened to a lot of pods pre-season and this kept me interested right to the end. An excellent listen.
Rank last season: 119,513 |
My main takeaway from the pod was to put out a team that was flexible so that I can jump on to in-form players easily. I had too much invested in defence and have shifted some cash into midfield/ up front.
Last Season Rank 25,217 | Best Rank 25,217
First season I’ve played all year and not given up a couple of months in. Now fully addicted! Still sore about triple captain on Sane last year :'(. I think eye tests and being patient for players in form to haul is important.
Rank last season: 8,726 | Highest rank: 8,414
Hugely useful pod this week. You can get people on pods telling you certain players are must-haves. Only the surgery will tell you why, backed up with credible evidence. They forgot the mighty Benteke this week, though 😉
Edit: don’t publish the Benteke bit unless he gets a brace
Rank last season (1st season): 800k | Highest rank: 800k
The discussions and clarification of why you should be aware of highly owned fodder was informative. were following it for def, but not fwds.
as mentioned by others this is by far the most informative, and thought through pod. with evidence, stats, eye-tests ++ to support your choices of players both on your team(s) as well as on the watchlist. Also “The Algorithm” part will be very interesting to hear as the season progress. glad you got him in. 🙂
FPL players, start your engines, and strap yourself in for the ride.
