FPL Week 3 Picks And Predictions

You need to either sign these players or dump them immediately.

It's about that time. The weekend is approaching, you just sat through a meaningless Carabao Cup match where your favorite team casually trotted out a pack of 15-year-old reserve players and took an L to a League Two side, and the Premier League is back this weekend. Time to fix that FPL roster that scored you 29 points last week and find this week's Son Heung-min to captain. We're here to help with the best FPL Week 3 picks out there. 

Perhaps you heard whispers about the hot, new FPL prediction model currently being built by the Data Science team here at The18. If not then give this a read — you might or might not be disappointed. Starting from this week, we'll be providing you with the predictions from this very model in the form of players to consider adding to your roster, as well as players to consider dropping. 

Without further ado, here ya go.

This might go without saying, but take these predictions with a fairly good-sized grain of salt. As cool as it'd be, we don't have a crytal ball here — the predictive model being used is only in the infant stages and will only be getting better with time. Best of luck to everyone out there and we'll see you in our next iteration of weekly FPL picks.
