FPL Gameweek 17 Tips and Tricks: Transfers

With a lot of places up for grabs in this busy festive schedule, it might be time to get in a few squad options to rotate using your free transfers. Be it someone like John McGinn from Villa or Raphinha from Leeds, our advice would be to get atleast one of them into your lineup, with long-term rewards being likely.

Manchester City’s upcoming fixtures look especially appealing, and it’s time to fill up those 3 City slots if you haven’t done so already. Resurgent in recent times, Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling could add firepower to your midfield, albeit for a hefty price.

FPL Gameweek 17 Tips and Tricks: Chips

Despite not being a double gameweek, the fixtures look promising to get in those big guns for just this one, and if you are someone to go for a high risk, high reward strategy, we advise you to bring them in playing your Free Hit chip. Otherwise, there will soon be double gameweeks, and that is where the the other chips should be used. Bench Boost should also be saved for a week that sees multiple players play in two matches on the same gameweek.

So for this particular GW, we advice you to save everything for later, unless you are a risk-lover eager for those big scores. Make thoughtful choices, and prosper. Happy hunting, fellow managers!
