Rule Changes

Don't be caught out by the alterations that have come into effect starting with Gameweek 30+ (that's right, 30+).

With the ability to make unlimited transfers - without the need of a wildcard - up until 5pm on Wednesday, Jules explains how it will alter her approach for the rest of the season.

Essential Players

As we approach the crucial home straight, this is where mini leagues are truly won and lost. So getting those all-important star performers in your team is more important than ever.

So who are the must-have players? And are they just as indispensable as before the break? Jules selects one defender, midfielder and attacker that you need in your team.


As ever, the name of the game is spending your money wisely and picking players who will outperform their value. John Lundstram, anyone?

Find out which player Jules believes will be both effective in picking up some points but also freeing up some cash to splash elsewhere in your squad.

Top Tips

With such an extended period away from the hotseat, FPL managers can be forgiven for requiring a little guidance as we resume the action this week.

Fortunately Jules is on hand to provide some sage advice, explaining why you shouldn’t get carried away with the unlimited free transfers and why squad balance is more crucial than ever.
