Gameweek 3 Preview ; TOP Transfers IN/OUT :
Β 
With the combination of many people rolling 🎒 a transfer GW1 and a bunch of new injuries and red cards 🎴 to deal with, it’s no surprise to see lots of transfers, with the most popular options (given below), all seeing 300k+ teams transfer them in or out already this week:
Β 
Top 5 transfers in:
Β 
Mbeumo (Brentford) ~650k transfers in, now ~19% ownership – The second πŸ₯ˆhighest points scorer in the game so far with 23 points, including a bumper 16 point haul last week πŸ’―. Currently on the same amount of goals (3) as Chelsea and Man United combined πŸ˜…. 3 of the next 4 games are home 🏠 fixtures at Crystal Palace 🏯, Bournemouth 🏝️ and Everton. A great option βœ…
Β 
Estupinan (Brighton) ~500k transfers in, now ~61% ownership – Also made this list last week πŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈ, and remains the highest owned defender in the game. Incredibly on 18 points in 2 games despite zero clean sheets 🧻. A goal ⚽️, 2 assists πŸ₯… and 4 bonus points would be solid returns for any position thus far, and as arguably the most nailed πŸ”¨ asset in an in form Brighton team, he’s another good buy βœ…
Β 
Wissa (Brentford) ~500k transfers in, now 13% ownership – most likely a common switch from Joao Pedro (6th most transferred out) due to the position/price point but having a great start in his own right with 2 goals ⚽️ and an assist πŸ₯… in the opening 2 games. Has the same decent set of fixtures as Mbeumo, but does open the question as to whether a Brentford double up πŸͺ’ is viable and if not, which asset is preferable. Nevertheless, not a bad option at all βœ…
Β 
Mitoma (Brighton) ~400k transfers in, now 43% ownership – the fifth 5️⃣ most selected player in the game (and quickly closing in on 4th.) Brighton have a couple of trickier games coming up (Newcastle 🏰 at home and Man U πŸ‘Ή away in the next 3) but Mitoma has averaged 85 minutes per match for 17 points thus far, and looks as nailed βš’οΈ as it gets in the in-form Brighton attack βœ…
Β 
March (Brighton) ~400k transfers in, now 9% ownership – not really a player who was being talked πŸ—£οΈ about pre-season, now the highest scoring in the game πŸ₯‡with 24 points. Tops the ICT index too thus far. But is triple Brighton a viable play? 🧐 βœ…
Β 
Some interesting things to note – the top 5 transfers in are exactly the same 5 players as the top 5 points scoring players 🀩. They all play for Brentford/Brighton, they are all priced from Β£5.2-6.7m and they all have at least 3 attacking returns thus far πŸ€”. It will be interesting to see how this develops of either of those teams start to lose form, particularly bearing in mind Brighton’s trickier upcoming fixtures

Top 5 transfers out
Β 
Stones πŸͺ¨ (Man City) ~500k transfers out, now 11% ownership – injured πŸ€• and confirmed out for several weeks by Pep. Could be back as soon as 3 GWs time given the international break, but 5.5m is a lot for a defender who sits on your bench πŸͺ‘βœ…
Β 
James (Chelsea) ~450k transfers out, now 9% ownership – also injured πŸ€• also out until after the international break at least, also expensiveπŸ’° for a defender. Get rid βœ…
Β 
Gabriel πŸ˜‡ (Arsenal) ~400k transfers out, now 25% ownership. Still the fifth most selected defender in the game despite starting no matches this season ❌. Despite an injury πŸ€• to Timber and a red card πŸ”΄ to Tomiyasu still hard to say for certain he starts the next game. Saudi πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¦ links. Also expensive for a defender. Easy transfer out now I’d say βœ…
Β 
Rashford (Man Utd) ~350k transfers out, now 45% ownership – perhaps a less obvious one ☝️. The 4th most selected player in the game clearly hasn’t started the season in great form (like the rest of his team). Nevertheless, Nottingham Forest 🌳 at home 🏑 next game is not an obvious exit point. I do wonder how many started the season on the Rashford/Bruno double up and are now getting rid of one. Personally I’d wait a week if I only owned Rashford πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ πŸ‘€
Β 
Mac Allister (Liverpool) ~350k transfers out, now ~7% ownership – red card πŸ”΄ last GW means he’s one of only 3️⃣ players on negative points ⬇️. That has now been overturned so he won’t be missing any fixtures. However as a 6.0m MID there are clearly better options who not much more expensive out there. Not necessarily the biggest problems in people’s squads but makes sense to get rid if you can. βœ…
