FPL GW23 Tips

Key notes for FPL GW23

Let’s start with our key notes for GW23 of FPL.

  • Target Aston Villa players, as they have amazing run of fixtures ahead. They should be  your number one transfer priority
  • Do not overlook Man City players – good fixtures in coming 3 gameweeks. Dias and Laporte could be Rudiger and Alonso replacement
  • Double up or triple up on City defence in the next 3 gameweeks. Pick 2 or 3 from: Cancelo, Laporte, Dias, Ederson
  • Chelsea have 3 blanks in next 5 gameweeks. Start selling their players
  • Have a plan how you bring Salah back in GW24

Who is the best captain in FPL GW16

We will keep the captaincy section short once again.

If you would like to know more about the process we use to select the captain every gameweek, read our article: How to pick the right captain in FPL?

According to this decision-making process, we think De Bruyne is the best captain in FPL GW23.

Ronaldo is our number two, and Fernandes is the number three captain pick.
