The Numbers Game – Attacking Full-Backs

With clean sheets so scarce again this season, Fantasy managers have been largely forced to look to their defenders for attacking returns. With budget options also proving popular acquisitions, there is a drive to identify those defenders who can perhaps offer supplementary points to add to those rare occasions when they can keep their opponents at bay.

Thankfully, the role of the modern-day full-back in the Premier League also appears to have changed, with the emphasis now on joining the attack and helping provide a stream of opportunities for others.

In this latest article for our members, we cast an eye over those full-backs who have recently impressed in this area, assessing those most likely to deliver those occasional assists that can make all the difference to our Gameweek totals.

        Is Cuellar -> Sagna worth a -4 hit?

        My other defenders are Baines, Shorey, Gorkss (bench?), McCartney (doubt)

                            if i had him i wouldn't think of selling on because of that tweet. it was probably more of a "the dog ate my homework" type excuse because he wasn't arsed signing books.

                        Gentlemen, I am ready to hit the transfer button on one of the following:

                        Zabs, Nas, Clichy, or Riise.

                        Which option should I fly with?

                          I'd go for the spectacular Zab! Make sure you've got your bench sorted though.

                                Nasty would be my vote, although which City defender to get is kind of a lottery. But I still think they're better options than Riise for the same price

                                    I'd feel safer with City coverage this week for sure, but Riise would definitely be the most appealing, nailed on option for me.

                                    Riise is the most nailed on, and has decent attacking potential over a good run of fixtures. The others are rotation risks, but play for a team that has a better chance at clean sheets. Depends if you don't mind the risk of rotation and have decent bench-warmers to cover.

                                      Thought this might be worth a repost
                                      Spurs defence.

                                      First, we haven’t kept many CS but at the same time we don’t concede a huge number of chances. This indicates that an upturn in CS could come and with Lloris between the sticks I am more confident of this.

                                      Additionally we’ve been guilty of letting our attention drop in the last 10 minutes however we have Parker returning. Now, I don’t expect Parker to displace Sandro or Dembele as starters (although he may afford them some rest over xmas) however he will be used as a sub around 70 minutes to spur the team on and throw himself in front of the inevitably nervy onslaught.

                                      Walker has started to get back to somewhere near what he’s capable of. Good news as well. 6.1 possibly too much for somebody who offers fleeting goal threat, but does offer fairly consistent crosses. Same goes for BAE when he returns.

                                      Vertonghen is a beast. He’s about as nailed on as you can get and when BAE returns from injury will move to CB where he is more natural. BAE hasn’t played for the reserves yet however so this may yet be a couple of weeks away. Now at 6.3 he’s dearer than Walker or BAE but he does pop off a lot more shots than Walker and has some set-piece duties. A punt but one that may be worthy of consideration.

                                      Now the main interest: Caulker. Now he’s much more appealingly priced at 4.9. He also has a lot of aerial threat. Issue is how much of a rotation risk is he? Now I believe that he is first choice but is not nailed on. He’s started to show his age a little bit in the past couple of games. Whilst he’s a much better option than Gallas and will play the majority of games – he will be given some rest over xmas. Now whether that is 2/5 or 1/5 remains to be seen and would probably affect your decision.

                                      Oh and the captaincy thing is a non-issue and should be banished from discussion. Dawson is club captain and has spent most the season on the bench. Gallas is the most experienced player and so has been captain when on the pitch but was benched too. It really isn’t an important factor in AVB’s decision making.

                                            Yeah but nobody is considering buying Dawson or Gallas are they? When Caulker is given rest it will be for one of those. I don't think Dawson will be ahead of him in the pecking order but he might be. He damn sure should be ahead of Gallas.

                                            Parker for the last 20 mins seems to me the best strategy that Spurs could have since they concede so much in the last third of the match (plus he doesn´t go well with playing full 90 mins.).

                                                  Nice write-up. It's enough to put me of Caulker.

                                                      I tried to be as fair as possible - I don't think Caulker is a bad option but it's a judgement call and isn't as simple as him just being our 2nd best CB.

                                                        It's a risky choice. If he starts 4/5 games (or more), he's golden at his price. If not, it becomes a problem.

                                                      Great post. I was thinking about Caulker. My other defenders are good, so I don't mind if he gets rotated minimally.

I swapped him for Bale last week, wish I had just kept Gareth. He's gone next week for Mata. For me, Mata, Bale, Michu, Fellaini and one of Sterling/Puncheon is the option mid, though I'm foregoing both and having Ramirez
