Titles are the window to the articles soul.  So unless you are incapable of seeing an actual soul it is fairly cut and dry here.  Every week I look at the match-up, form and ownership of players, mix that with some common sense and a sprinkle of my own general “expertedness” and formulate a ranking system for you to use at home to help you build your FPL team from a week-to-week basis.  Sounds pretty simple, I mean the hardest thing you have to do is argue with them and actually read it.  So without further hullabaloo, here are the Week 3 rankings for the FPL, keepers and defense!

Keepers:

  1. Hugo Lloris, Spurs
  2. Ederson, Man City
  3. Ben Foster, West Brom
  4. David de Gea, Man United
  5. Fraser Forster, Southampton
  6. Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea
  7. Jonas Lossl, Huddersfield
  8. Heurelho Gomes, Watford
  9. Jack Butland, Stoke
  10. Wayne Hennessey, Crystal Palace
  11. Rob Elliot, Newcastle
  • Lossl, de Gea, and Foster.  That is the list of goalies through two games that have allowed zero goals.  All have good to better then good matches to continue the string.
  • Lloris and Ederson have the best match-ups on paper this week for quality CS chance.
  • Jack Butland once again is boosting his 5.0 price tag by getting some save points with 9 on the year.  Stoke doesn’t have much to roster other than him so he is a defensive CS shot every week.
  • Palace has been getting bombarded on nete and Wayne Hennessey has 16 saves through two games.  It’s a good and bad type thing.
  • The Liverpool/Arsenal match knocks both normally on the list keepers from the list.

Defence:

  1. Marcos Alonso, Chelsea
  2. Danilo, Man City
  3. Eric Bailly, Man United
  4. Ben Davies, Spurs
  5. Ryan Bertrand, Southampton
  6. Vincent Kompany, Man City
  7. Ahmed Hegazi, West Brom
  8. Kieran Trippier, Spurs
  9. Daley Blind, Man United
  10. Sead Kolasinac, Arsenal
  11. Zanka, Huddersfield
  12. Antonio Valencia, Man United
  13. Craig Dawson, West Brom
  14. Toby Alderweireld, Spurs
  15. Cedric, Southampton
  16. Phil Jones, Man United
  17. Andrew Robertson, Liverpool
  18. Patrick van Aanholt, Crystal Palace
  19. Cesar Azpilicueta, Chelsea
  20. Harry Maguire, Leicester
  21. Allan Nyom, West Brom
  22. Aaron Cresswell, West Ham
  23. Christopher Schindler, Huddersfield
  24. David Luiz, Chelsea
  25. Miguel Britos, Watford
  • From my perspective, Marcos Alonso is the best clean sheet and goal scoring threat in the entire game.  At 7.0 he is as close to a must own player as it gets.
  • Love United this week as all of their defenders are in the fray.  Phil Jones being the bargain and Bailly/Blind being the best BPS darlings.
  • Also love me some Baggies this week.  Nyom I adore and Dawson and Hegazi are names that get involved.  Zero goals allowed and are looking strong in a Pulis system that preaches defence.
  • Trippier returns for Tottenham.
  • I wish West ham had more reliable defenders for their next few fixtures.  Unfortunately they don’t.  Cresswell isn’t nodded on but the best of the lot.
  • No Holebas for Watford who face a scuffling offensive team in Brighton.  Miguel Britos is a huge differential.
