FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 2 Movers & Shakers


The FPL transfer market is always at its most volatile at the start of the season, with plenty of kneejerk moves being made as managers try to stay ahead of the pack.

We take a look at who’s being bought and sold ahead of Gameweek 2.


Alexander Isak (£7.6m) – Newcastle
The most transferred in player at the time of writing, almost five hundred thousand managers have snapped up the Newcastle striker following his brace against Aston Villa, which netted him 13 points. Off the back of these transfers, Isak became the first player of the season to receive a price increase.

Ben Chilwell (£5.6m) – Chelsea
Another player who has gone up in price this week, Chilwell was as attacking as ever against Liverpool, assisting Chelsea’s goal while also having a goal disallowed mere minutes later. Over 400k managers have invested in the full-back this week, just in time for Chelsea’s good run of fixtures.

Bukayo Saka (£8.6m) – Arsenal
The Arsenal star was already the highest owned midfielder in FPL but plenty more managers have been snapping him up following his strike against Nottingham Forest in Gameweek 1. Saka – who recorded 26 goal involvements in the Premier League last season – now features in almost two-thirds of all fantasy squads.


Kevin De Bruyne (£10.4m) – Man City
In light of the news that De Bruyne is unlikely to kick a football again in 2023, FPL managers have been offloading the Belgian en masse. His sales have now surpassed the 750k mark, and he premium price tag allows for significant funds to be invested elsewhere.

John Stones (£5.4m) – Man City
Another Man City asset who has been sold in droves this week, Stones was a surprise omission from Pep Guardiola’s squad in Gameweek 1, which has led many FPL bosses to sell the England international. However, Stones was part of Man City’s UEFA Super Cup squad on Wednesday, so it shouldn’t be long before he’s selected.

Tyrone Mings (£4.5m) – Aston Villa
Another player who was unfortunate to go down with a serious injury on the opening weekend was Tyrone Mings, who is now set to miss several months of action. A popular budget defender prior to Gameweek 1, FPL managers have been quick to act on this news.
