Gameweek 8 forecast

Risk slider - this season each player is assigned a risk rating, based on their playing time and current injury status (as explained here). There's no reason to definitely exclude all risky players, but you should consider their playing time before pulling the trigger with them.

I've had a couple of questions about a couple of the 'odd' forecasts above, namely Loic Remy's lofty status and how Sturridge out ranks Suarez. I'll address those in more detail tomorrow but wanted to get the data out now.

You're needing a bit of lukaku...

You figures are very different from FFS's Rate My Team tool. To be honest, I'm inclined to trust you more Chris! :D

Still wondering though, how are they calculated?

Walker - 5.4
Baines - 4.0

Baines - 5.8
Walker - 3.5

Graeme - you need to move the risk slider to include Lukaku. He's been voluntarily benched twice so his risk rating takes a hit. If you're confident he'll play, then he's a good play this week.

First, great stuff Chris, very helpful. I think your being harsh on Lukaku, his first game was against Chelsea and he was ineligible to play so it wasn't a voluntarily bench. His next game was away at West Ham, and when he came on he completely dominated the game, I reckon he's pretty secure now.
