FPL - Gameweek 17
There have been two Gameweeks in the last week. Gameweek 15 finished with 36 points for the Premier Skills team on the Premier League's official Fantasy Football game but Gameweek 16 was much more successful - we got 55 points. We've also played our wildcard so there have been lots of changes to the Premier Skills team - take a look at our current team in the image below. In the Premier Skills League, we moved up to 44th place with 693 points. Congratulations to Los 11 Impostores managed by Gerardo Lopez from Mexico who stays at the top of the Premier Skills League with 930 points. How is your team doing?
This was our starting XI for Gameweek 16:
This week, we have two free transfers to make and already we want to make some changes to our new-look team. Southampton's Oriel Romeu is suspended and Liverpool's Roberto Firmino is not in great form. We want to exchange these two midfielders for another two. Do you have any ideas? We have £13.2 million to spend. We've put a couple of ideas in the votes below but we'd also like to hear your ideas in the comments section. It would be great to have your help! Don't forget that we also need you to choose our captain from the current squad.

Rich: Rich here. How’s your Fantasy Premier League team doing? We’ve had two Gameweeks this week because the Premier League played a full round of fixtures in midweek.
Jack: I hope it didn’t take you by surprise. It took me by surprise. I missed the transfer deadline!
Rich: You always miss the transfer deadline, Jack!
Jack: That’s true! Anyway, how did the Premier Skills team do in Gameweeks 15 and 16.
Rich: Gameweek 15 wasn’t that great - we got 36 points but gameweek 16 was much better - we got 55 points.
Jack: That’s pretty good. The Premier Skills team is in 44th place in the Premier Skills League.
Rich: We’ve got Ibrahimovic back in the team. I think that was a good move. We’ve also got Alexis Sanchez, David Luiz, and Harry kane as our star players.
Jack: You’ve also chosen Eden Hazard but he was injured last week. He should be back this Saturday, though so I hope we get some points there.
Rich: Yes, I think the Premier Skills team is getting better and better - our listeners chose some great players when we played our wildcard last week.
Jack: You’re doing pretty well, Rich. I see you’re up to 19th place.
Rich: I’m quite happy but I could do better. I’ve also got Ibrahimovic back in my team but I’m going for Diego Costa as my captain.
Jack: Gerardo Lopez from Mexico is still top of the Premier Skills league.
Rich: He’s doing really well. I wonder if anybody can catch him?
Jack: And a special well done to antanas puceta from Lithuania - he chose West Brom’s Salomon Rondon as captain for gameweek 16 and he scored a hat-trick!
Rich: Wow that was an inspired choice!
Jack: We’ve got 2 free transfers this week and we want to change our midfield a little. Southampton’s Oriel Romeu is suspended and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino is not playing that well.
Rich: We have £13.2 million and we want two new midfielders. I think we should replace Firmino with Mane at Liverpool.
Jack: But he will be playing at the Africa Cup of Nations in January with Senegal so will be away for about a month.
Rich: It’s true maybe Adam Lallana then.
Jack: It doesn’t have to be a Liverpool player, Rich! We’ll give you all a few options in our votes at the bottom of the page.
Rich: And it’d be great if you could explain who we should move in and out of the Premier Skills team in the comments section.
Jack: And don’t forget to choose this week’s captain!
Rich: We’ll be back next week with more Fantasy Premier League.
This week we have 2 free transfers to change the Premier Skills Fantasy Premier League team. Rich and Jack have decided to change the midfield a little.
