A quick post to give complete transparency to my team selections. I will only be documenting one team with transfers in advance this season, as I felt like trying to document more than one would get confusing. However, I do plan to mention more about how my other teams are getting on during the season. I’m not a big fan of the 10 team allowance and believe the game would be better if we could only select one team. However, as we are allowed 10 teams, I tend to fill the quota, but I do struggle to keep on top of the other teams when compared to my main team.
My focus will still be my main team, but I just wanted to be completely transparent about the approaches I’m taking with my other teams before the season starts. I’m pretty much doing what other players do in covering all of the key players across different teams, giving me a better chance of a higher overall finish.
Main Team – DTT
This is the team I will blog about and enter into the DTT mini league. This team is subject to change before the season kicks off, keep an eye on my team selection post for my confirmed starting 11, but this is where I’m currently at.
Mini League Team 1
I plan to enter this team into a competitive mini league. It’s a variation on the team above, where I’ve gone for players who didn’t quite make it into my main team.
Mini League Team 2
This is another variation that I’ll enter into a competitive mini league. I wanted to try and team with the big three up front and also a reasonably strong midfield. Big question marks against the back line.
Mini League Team 3
Another team for a competitive mini league, this time I’ve avoided all of the big three up front and gone for the two biggest hitters at the back. Given that I’ve not got Kane or Salah in this team, I’ve not got very high hopes for it.
Mini League Team 4
My final team that I’ll be entering into a competitive mini league. I’ve tried to give this one a little more balance and included a couple of more curveball players such as Grealish and Lingard. It’s also the only team I’ll be entering into a mini league that features Trippier.
Strong At The Back
For this team, I’ve picked the strongest defence I could think of and then made do with whatever players I could fit in around this. I’d be very surprised if this team does well considering the lack of balance throughout the team.
In this draft, I’ve simply tried to include as many players as possible based on how popular they currently are in the game.
Good Fixtures in August
I’ve based this team around players who have good fixtures in August or in the case of the West Ham players, more fixtures in August. I’d be very surprised if I get much of a return from Scamacca but I thought he was worth a punt with the extra European fixtures.
This team features a semi block of Spurs defenders, as I think they could do OK at the back this season. From there, I’ve tried to keep the rest of the team fairly balanced with consistent point scorers.
My final team is incredibly strong in terms of strikers and midfielders but quite shakey at the back due to an imbalance of budget. I prefer the balanced approach so I’m not sure how this team will do but it will be interesting to see.
So there we have it, that’s my 10 teams that utilise 39 different players. I’ve also kept a log of how many occurrences each player has across my 10 teams to give good coverage for certain players:
It’s worth noting, that these are subject to change. I’m publishing them now as I’m away on holiday next week and may tweak them further but I won’t have chance to publish the final versions (other than my main team).
