FPL launch 2017/18 – Rules Changes and Player Price list

Welcome to FPL launch 2017/18 – Rules Changes and Player Price list. And finally we’re back to normality… No more wondering how to fill those days in the office, pretending to be working on that big project but secretly with an FPL tab or ten open at the bottom. We can finally start tinkering again as the game for the 2017/18 has been launched and the player prices along with it. Let the GW1 RMT’s commence in earnest!

Whether you are new to the game or a relative veteran let’s get some of the basics out of the way –

To either register as a new user or simply renew your team you need to click here… FPL 2017/18

If you have played previously then that will simply allow you to re-register. You will be issued with a new ‘FPL ID’ number though – if you usually link your team to your username on FF247 then you will have to update that link here or you will be showing somebody else’s team. Click on the link and then follow the instructions entitled ‘How do I link my ‘display name’ to my fantasy team?’.

New Rules
After two seasons spent trying to figure out what on earth to do with the All Out Attack chip we can finally forget that one as it’s been replaced with the ‘Free Hit’ chip. We won’t labour the point as we are sure it will be discussed in depth below but basically it means that you can change your entire squad for one week and then it will revert to what it was previously the week after that – particularly useful for such occurrences as a blank (ish) GW or indeed a double one. It adds a layer of strategy to the game, one which will be debated long and hard as to when it will be best to use it.

FPL themselves released this article to explain it fully.

New player prices – some of the new players to the Premiership or those who have changed teams that may interest you:

Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal) – 10.5m
Jermain Defoe (Bournemouth) – 8.0m
Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea) – 6.0m
Sandro Ramirez (Everton) – 7.5m
Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – 9.0m
Bernardo Silva (Man City) – 8.0m
Romelu Lukaku (Man Utd) – 11.5m

And some selected old favourites:

Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – 12.0m
Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – 10.5m
Seamus Coleman (Everton) – 6.5m
Sadio Mane (Liverpool) – 9.5m
Sergio Aguero (Man City) – 11.5m
Antonio Valencia (Man Utd) – 6.5m
Harry Kane (Spurs) – 12.5m
Gylfi Sigurdsson (Swansea) – 8.5m

You will all have your own views and may spot the glaring bargain that we 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.

Start posting RMT’s by all means. It’s a long and arduous process so the earlier you start the better! There will be many doing the same so sharing thoughts and ideas on either players, formations or tactics is always welcomed.

For our part we will start posting our pre-season articles on a regular basis now. We will have rundowns on the promoted teams, new signing articles and also coverage of the pre-season games as we build toward GW1 of yet another new season.

    Hey Guys! Im excited for the new season!

    Here is my rough team at the moment, what do you think? any suggestions?

      Hi Main. Not sure about Holgate’s game time – will have to see if any of the Everton fans can assist you there – but Everton’s fixtures are horrid anyway so doubling up at the back would be a no no for me.

      Not sure I see value in King now. Remains to be seen how they will play with Defoe.

    Not sure about Holgate. His time in the team is limited – and Everton have a very tough start to the season. Good to see a traditional 4-4-2 for a change though! Although I’m not convinced it’s a good formation for FPL.

    Think there will be a lot of changes to my team between now and the Kick Off

    My second draft…

    Not sure about Herrera, he might change to Mooy.
    Double baggies defence is a little scary, but they’ve got nice fixtures.
    Tempted to do Coutinho & Tekkers to Sane & Firmino

      @Banjo if you are worried about double Baggies go get a Saints player for Mac. Considering it is day 1, think that’s a great start, will be interested to see how much it varies over the coming weeks.

      Can’t wait to get hooked on some cheap mid I have never heard of and destroy my team to fit him in and then watch him be benched on GW1

      • banjomaker says:

        Cheers Mito. I’m a Pompey fan, so can’t consider any of that lot. I’m sure the team will change a thousand times between now and GW1!
