FPL launch 2016/17 – New Rules and Player Pricelist

imageFinally it is live! FPL is back, life as we know it will not be the same for the next 10 months! At first glance there seems little change to last season – budget and squad size is naturally the same and the four chips remain in place, including the two wildcards – one to be used in the first half of the season, the other to be used in the second half of the season. The first may not be carried over – so use it or lose it. The only change seems to be in the calculation of bonus points – a breakdown of which can be found under the Rules tab.

With less than a month to go before the start of the season, managers will be busily playing with different formations and strategies, so to help you on your way, let’s take a very brief look at some of the highlights of the price list for the players.

Players Price List – initial reaction
The most expensive player (as per usual!) is Sergio Aguero who again costs 13mln, while the success last season of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez sees their prices rocket to eliminate their bargain status! Nolito and Anthony Martial being listed as midfielders may attract decent support. Zlatan Ibrahimovic comes in at 11.5mln to make him the second most expensive player while Diego Costa costs just 9.5mln, making him cheaper than Harry Kane, Daniel Sturridge and Jamie Vardy. Daley Blind are Chris Brunt are now listed as defenders, while Eric Dier is now listed as a midfielder.

You will all have your own views and may spot the glaring bargain that I have missed. So please share your thoughts below on both the new changes to the game (the chips) and also your thoughts on the prices and maybe you’ve even begun to draft your initial squad.

    For me, Martial is a must this season, don’t know about you guys!

    Also like the look of Shaw and Baines in defence.

      Hey Burnsy right now I’m thinking Mickey but Martial being set as a midfielder is really appealing.

      When you look at Martial’s score last season (141) then yeah that being reflected to a midfielder’s points is well worth consideration. The uplift of his goals to a midfielder’s rate and potential clean sheets now certainly will warrant consideration.

      Everton do have fair fixtures to start with and hopefully having a defender as manager now, and anyone apart from Martinez some would say, could help them tighten up.

    Just tried my hand on for first time, didn’t like the interface much though ! Btw hope I can join regulars league this season :D
    Startaegy will be going on for packed heavy Midfield for me, no costly defenders as with the amount of talented mids and forwards I don’t see much CS potential except Man Utd and City defence. DOn’t ask me about Lenihan :D
