It’s Tuesday.  It means knee jerk reactions and total punting for Week 2 of the FPL season.  I am truly only half-kidding, but people involved in the chase gonna chase regardless.  Especially with the first few price changes in the books already.  Everyone wants that shiny new bargain toy for a penny cheaper then they just had it.  So with the first Transfer Tuesday post of the year, Smokey is here to guide you down the trail of transfer ideas that may be a little off beat or because I am seeing something that you didn’t.  Four eyes are better than two, especially when people who are making transfers this early in the week, and making the market climb on a Tuesday.  I don’t get it, but people get nervous and make irrational decisions, messing it up for everyone else.  So while we live the rational transfer life, here are some transfer ideas for maybe a few days down the road to set yourself up for next week’s set of matches.  Cheers!

David Luiz, Chelsea – No Cesc, No Cahill and the injured are not good.  Luiz in a perfect situation moves forward and slots next to Kante in the midfield, allowing some more offensive chances for him.  If they actually get some with 11 guys on the pitch this time.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Man United – If he has this much space and comfortableness all year, he may just challenge Christian Eriksen or KDB for the assist lead this season.  He is the perfect wide side facilitator that makes Lukaku and all the Red Devil parts look better when he is on form.

Ahmed Hegazi, West Brom – I get the love after the 14 point effort, and completed 72% of his passses while playing a top notch defense.  The only problem is Baggies played three at the back, does he remain when Captain Johnny Evans and Gareth McAuley are back and fit.  Interesting questions… it’s a wait and see til that day.

Granit Xhaka, Arsenal – A sign 0f things to come for the 5.6 middie.  If the parts around him change or continue to underperform he could be more valuable the players with a bigger price tag.

Steve Mounie, Huddersfield – “The Flashing Terrier” netted two goals and his play from Ligue One translates.  Everyone needs a 6.0 striker to augment there Harry Kane debate.  Seriously is there a debate?

Emre Can, Liverpool – The WORLD is chasing Mane and Salah.  If I wanted invest my money in a Liverpool player that had some flair and on the differential it would Can.  Got an assist and the Reds are going to score a lot and give up a lot too.

Mathias Jorgensen, Huddersfield – Hud looks legit defensively enough that you can have one in a rotation.  Funny where have I heard that before.  Oh that is right I said it a month ago!  Known by Zanka, he is an instant roster addition.

    As a Liverpool fan I’d love Can to prove a worthwhile option. As is what I see are lots of bookings for rash tackles and many goals conceded.

      @Jeremy: I agree with the fouls being a downer, but you aren’t investing in a Pool defender or keeper this year and the three options have to come from the middle and forward. Can at 5.0 is a bargain entry into the assists and goal ability of Liverpool as a whole

        @Smokey: If Puncheon doesn’t step up in Zaha’s absence, Can will be my next cheap MF on my team.

        I’m upset about the lack of Sam Vokes love in your article. That is all.

      @SheriffMcRawDawg: Gotta love the FIFA upgrade for fantasy relevance.
