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.

    Glad to be back in the land of qualitative information and inside dopesters. A frustrating month with FFFix. My two best team FFFix draft teams came in 5.1 million and 6.0 million over budget. The world of algorithms still hasn’t caught up. Now I can read genuine wisdom on FF247. Mind, it’ll be another several weeks to make up ground.

    Fellas, I’m new to this site.

    Playing fantasy football for cash this year so thought I’d show abit more interest…

    Always loved this stage of FPL, my aim is to stay on top of everything this year.

    Need some tips on what players will increase in value & how fixtures overlook.

    I am a scouser & think as always that this is our year. No redmen In the team yet, will be waiting for keita.

    This is my first draft what you think?

      Hi Jurgen and welcome to the site.

      You’ve invested a serious wedge of your cash in a City team that is likely to see some rotation. I would pick one from Jesus & Aguero, which one I’m not yet sure.
      I’ve seen Cesc in a number of teams but I’m not convinced particularly now they’ve completed the signing of Bakayoko.
      Keep an eye on Holgate in pre-season as there’s every chance that Kenny & not Holgate will play in place of Coleman.

      Hi Jurgen

      Welcome along to the site. You’ll love it.

      I agree with the points made by Kop. Aguero or Jesus to Lukaku would be a fair start. Alli makes perfect sense and I think Ramsey is well worth some investment too.

      I really like Abraham in there. He’s a bit under the radar.

    Cheers for feedback guys

    I’ve gone with fabregas because I expect him to play first few games.

    Invested in Citeh because I expect them to come out the blocks strong like last season & they have nice fixtures.

    Tammy is a steal will be getting atleast ten goals + assists.

    Got 1m left in the bank as well. Will change a few before season starts

    Don’t fancy lukaku to get off to a flyer with utd (maybe I’m just hoping) would rather lacazette
