Gameweek Eight Preview: Graphical Aid

Heading into its third month, the FPL has been a trying test of patience for the masses, and we've learnt a few things. Price rises happen more than once for players on the hype train, whilst there a more than a shopping list worth of names falling in value. Leicester and West Ham have proven bargain buys, whilst Chelsea and Arsenal continue to fall short on their big prices. Points are falling in the category of mid-price players, with money in Aguero and Rooney wasted. The Hype Train is back with its 8th edition of the Graphical Aid, with the intention of helping your fifteen man fantasy squad rocket up the table with green arrows.

Each and every week on our Weekly Hype page we look at the next FPL GW. Starting with the opening weekend, we provided our pro 'Scout Picks', whilst we run down the best options in every position. Being the eight week, we've included the players who have boarded the actual 'Hype Train' - the hype players, and those who've departed.

So here's what's on the Weekly Hype for the next weekend of BPL action, including an extensive look at some of the FPL's in form midfielders.

The transfer deadline is once again at the same time - Saturday 3rd October at 11.45am (UK time). The FPL returns to a two day format, with no late night Monday football, though Everton and West Brom was a real treat, especially for owners of Lukaku in the FPL. The Hype Team will be around this weekend to provide live FPL coverage throughout the weekend over on our Twitter account - @RealHypeTrain - with live FPL score charts and updates from the Premier League.

Until then, muse over our Weekly Hype page, and we wish your teams the best for the upcoming GW8.
