From this point onwards, it’s time to start planning ahead for your first Wildcard (if you haven’t used it already) and how to get the most out of your team in the weeks before that, especially if you’re working around the Double Gameweek in GW7 which sees both Luton and Burnley play twice.

Best AI FPL team — Gameweek 7

According to FantasyFootballHub’s handy AI team generator, the best team for Gameweeks 7-10 features a number of Newcastle, Luton, and Manchester United assets.

It uses the very meta 3-5-2 formation that appears to be the go-to for most FPL players this season, with a strong midfield. Here’s what AI selects as the best GW7 team:

Of course, this may continue changing in the lead-up to the Gameweek 7 deadline on Saturday, September 30, as more players get injured or other factors change, with EFL Cup matches taking place.

Who to buy & sell in FPL Gameweek 7

With the first few gameweeks out of the way, it’s time to start planning long-term for the coming gameweeks, and that’ll involve making informed decisions on the best players to bring in or remove from your team.

Here are our recommendations on players to buy and sell, based on form, ownership, and projected performances going forward:

Who to buy in Gameweek 7

  • Kieran Trippier (6.6m)
    • Form: 6.8
  • Son Heung-Min (9.2m)
    • Form: 12.0
  • Anthony Gordon (5.6m)
    • Form: 7.0

Who to sell in Gameweek 7

  • Malo Gusto (4.3m)
    • Form: 2.0
  • Marcus Rashford (8.9m)
    • Form: 4.0
  • Nicolas Jackson (7.0m)
    • Form: 1.0

This week, you want to start targeting the players who have been performing well and have good fixtures. There may be no three better players than Son, Trippier, and Gordon.

Son comes in at a similar price to Marcus Rashford — who we recommend selling this week — so this should be an easy transfer for a player in far better form. Meanwhile, Newcastle assets are on the up, and with Harvey Barnes’ injury, Gordon should be guaranteed more minutes in the coming weeks. Trippier, on the other hand, is guaranteed 90 minutes almost every week, and even clocked 3 assists against Sheffield United.

As for who else to sell, now is the time to offload two popular Chelsea assets in Jackson and Gusto, both of whom have been suspended so will be unavailable for selection anyway. Look to move to Newcastle players, instead, as recommended above.
