Gameweek 8, Top Transfers In/Out :
ย 
In a week in which every person and their dog ๐Ÿถ seems to be playing their wildcard ๐Ÿ†โ™ฆ๏ธ, hereโ€™s the top transfers in/out:
ย 
ย 
Top 5 transfers in:
ย 
Son ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท (Spurs) – ~900k transfers in, now 30% ownership – tops ๐Ÿ”this list for the second time this season. 43 points in his last 4 games ๐Ÿคฉ is one factor but the other is a theoretical plum fixture vs Luton in a week where Man City and Arsenal play each other ๐Ÿคบ, making him a top captaincy ๐Ÿงข pick. Will he fall victim to the curses ๐Ÿคฌ of being the most transferred in player and having the early โฐkick off?ย 
ย 
Watkins ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ (Villa) – ~820k transfers in, now 27% ownership – comes off the back of a huge 23 point return, with 3 goals and 2 assists last week ๐Ÿคฏ. Clearly an exceptional performance โœ…, which has earned him an England recall โœ…, and now approaching a great run of fixtures too โœ…. However worth noting that prior to that game, Watkins had been his normal consistent, low ceiling ๐Ÿฅฑself in the league – only blanking ๐Ÿ˜ถ once, but only averaging ~5 points a game. Which Watkins will show up against Wolves ๐Ÿบ this week?
ย 
Cash๐Ÿ’ฐ(Villa) – ~680k transfers in, now 27% ownership – somewhat incredible that a player whoโ€™s had 2 negative ๐Ÿ“‰ returns in 7 matches is now the third ๐Ÿฅ‰most selected defender in the game. However a decent price ๐Ÿค‘, several attacking ๐Ÿ—ก๏ธ returns (with potential for more judging on his positioning/opportunities), and a nice run of fixtures sees him make third on this listย 
ย 
Maddison (Spurs) – ~500k transfers in, now ~35% owned –ย  given the form and the fixtures a Spurs triple ๐ŸŽผ up has been popular in many wildcard ๐Ÿ…โ™ ๏ธteams, with Maddison normally the second attacking pick alongside the Spurs captain. Has blanked ๐Ÿ˜ 2 of the last 3 but largely returned a steady stream of points this season and seems to be on a number of set pieces ๐Ÿฅ…too. A cheaper ๐Ÿ’ธ option than his compatriot if youโ€™re only going with one
ย 
Trippier (Newcastle) – ~420k transfers in, now ~45% owned – after blanking ๐Ÿ˜ถ in the first 4 league matches, now on a frankly ludicrous 30 points in 2 games ๐Ÿ˜ฑ, picking up 4 assists and 6 bonus points in that period. Newcastle have pretty solid fixtures, and with other popular pick Botman injured ๐Ÿค• , Trippier continues to increase in popularity โฌ†๏ธ

ย 
Top 5 transfers out
ย 
Estupinan (Brighton) ~1.3m transfers out, now 49% owned – still the most owned defender in the game, but now ruled out injured ๐Ÿค• for at least the next 3 matches. An easy sell ๐Ÿ‘‹
ย 
Saka (Arsenal) ~550k transfers out, now 54% owned – from the most owned defender to the most owned midfielder in FPL ๐Ÿค”. Potentially injured ๐Ÿค• ahead of what was already a tricky ๐Ÿ™„fixture against Man City. Also an easy switch to popular captaincy pick Son ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท this week. But will everyone want him back for Sheffield United at home in GW10? ๐Ÿง
ย 
Rashford (Man Utd) – ~500k transfers out, now 24% ownership – makes this list for the fifth time this season, the most of any player ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. Now on 3 blanks ๐Ÿ˜ถ in 3 games, which is not good enough for an 8.8m player. Another easy switch to Son too โœ‹๐Ÿผ
ย 
Chilwell ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ (Chelsea) ~450k transfers out, now 11% ownership – halves ๐Ÿฅ‘ his ownership again this week. Still ๐Ÿค• , still on one point in 4 matches, amazed so many people still owned him at all ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
ย 
Botman ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ (Newcastle) – became the one โ€˜fun with flagsโ€™ player to actually miss out last week, and is now ruled out until after the international ๐ŸŒ break. Could only miss one game though ๐Ÿคจ, so not the worst shout to hold if youโ€™re short on transfers/not wildcarding and have other prioriesย

What transfers are you making this week? And what do you think of the trends so far?
