Using Squad Balance Tool to Build GW4 Wildcard Team

The Balance Tool idea stems from Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs that suggests that as human beings we have a need for a secure base, a solid foundation. This had me thinking about our FPL squads as they also need a fairly solid base to build upon, given how we only get the one free transfer every gameweek. The tool acts as a visual prompt to encourage managers to question their squads' long-term and short-term balance, seeing potential issues in advance and hopefully saving needless hits or chips being used.

In this article, I will be using the squad balance tool to help me build a GW4 wildcard team. However, I will not be wildcarding in GW4.
