Versus – Ramsey and Barkley

Filed under: Members - Posted by: Paul

With five weeks of the season now behind us, Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey and Everton’s Ross Barkley have been two of the biggest success stories thus far. Racking up 32 points and 25 points respectively in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game, the duo’s displays, allied with their mid-price appeal, continues to tempt huge numbers of new owners.

Drafted in by over 510,000 managers last week, Ramsey has already picked up over 144,000 transfers in since Saturday’s deadline and with 31% ownership, is now the most popular midfielder in the game. Barkley is not far behind – now residing in 27% of teams, the Toffees youngster is third in terms of midfield ownership, with only City’s Yaya Toure separating the pair.

With Fantasy managers looking for ways to free up cash to acquire the returning Luis Suarez, we take a look at the pair’s performances over the first five Gameweeks so far to ascertain just what sort of an impact they’ve been making on the field of play:

    1. A or Ozil if you can stretch to that (without a hit).

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. Cheers cant stretch to Ozil w/o a hit short .3

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
  2. If Theo misses the international games,it'll be real blessing fir Arsenal. International games don't go well for him.

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
  3. ok guys just one question

    who to bench? oscar (tot) eriksen (CHE) moses (sun)

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. Moses

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    2. I want your issues.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    3. moses

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  4. would you wildcard if you have:

    Benteke
    Soldado
    Walcott
    Kim
    Murner
    Chester

    already used my FT in hazard --> Michu

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. I wildcarded last week and have 4 of those

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    2. Yes I would.

      Ironically it's only been 2 weeks since I WCed and I've got Benteke, Walcott, Chester and RVP.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  5. So after a couple of bad weeks and needed/wanting 5/6 players in/out I've wilcarded. Got potential double risers in for now to gain value. This is the team i'm looking at ending with

    Mignolet/4.0

    Baines, Dawson, Davies, Clyne, Wilson

    Ozile, Toure, Brady, Oscar, Barkley

    Sturridge, Rooney, Lukaka

    Is this good to go? No Michu is an issue - could downgrade clyne/wilson to $4.0 in order to fund Oscar to Michu - or straight swap for Toure. Or take Ravel instead of Barkley?

    Think i'm set but would appreciate any suggestions

    Thanks

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. Toure > michu imo

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  6. Not enough gameweeks have passed to do this, and most high scoring players have played every minute, and some new signings only played a few games which skews in their favour, but anyway.

    1. Interesting thanks

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  7. RMT guys. This is my WC team. 0.5 Mil in the bank.

    Boruc Lewis
    Dawson Davies(swa) Distin Turner(car) Gabbidon
    Michu Yaya Ramsey Ozil Brady
    Rooney Sturridge Giroud

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. gk lewis to davis i would downgrade yaya and upgrade my defence

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. thanks . who would your pick be for MID and DEF then ?

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
  8. what do i do with walcott and rvp?? omfg!!

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. haha, PANIC STATIONS!

      We are all in the same boat. I have done a 4pt hit already and I still have 3 doubts ahead of the weekend. AND IT IS TUESDAY!

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. lol true story...

        i should sell Rvp, Walcott and Soldado...and buy Rooney, Ozil and Suarez...

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
    2. You were pretty confident earlier that RVP was gonna play, convincing others to keep. Goes to show you really can't be 100% sure and if not, shouldn't advise others as such mate.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  9. Right.. Going to be asked me a lot of people but Michu or Ozil ? (I have Giroud.)

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. Have same problem thinking michu and get wally back after international break

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    2. I've gone for Michu because of fixtures and form. Looks like similar points potential for £1.4m difference

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    3. Ozil.. I went for Michu and kind of regret not taking the hit as I've realized it will be hard to get in Ozil now

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    4. Ozil this week and Michu next?

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  10. Walcott ot 2 weeks confirmed!
    Walcott --> Michu (-4p) done!

    Just wonder if Swansea play this midweek or no?

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. they play in league cup then league at weekend and europa next thursday

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. actually no league cup

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
        1. So no chance of a random Michu injury ala Kolo Toure?

          • 1 year, 2 months ago
          1. swansea fc website says

            birmingham v swansea wed
            swansea v arsenal sat
            Swansea v st gallen thu

            • 1 year, 2 months ago
    2. Check below!

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  11. so I guess I'll just do Theo to Michu after the Swansea game, is it tonight?

    Already done Lampard and Tekkers to Ramsey and Rooney for free

    Really don't want to go -8 to lose RvP as well

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. Also, despite Giroud being the obvious replacement should I need to sell RvP, why I am drawn to getting Lukaku instead?

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    2. Hope he will be rested today

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. RvP is confirmed out tomorrow.

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
        1. I mentioned Michu

          • 1 year, 2 months ago
          1. oh Michu?

            yeah I think he will be

            • 1 year, 2 months ago
  12. With Theo ruled out for a few weeks is Gnabry possibly an option as a short term cheap midfielder (only 4.5) :?:

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. If on WC maybe if not just a waste of transfer

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    2. if Arteta is back could Wilshere not play there?

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    3. Definitely! He is certainly favoured over Miyaichi, and we will want to play our skewed front 3. Very good player, and could get some points :D

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  13. --------Theo update-------
    @SkySportsNews: Theo Walcott to have operation on abdomen & will miss England's World Cup qualifiers next month #SSN

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
  14. Walcott confirmed out for 2 weeks.

    So Walcott -> ?

    1. Ozil
    2. Oscar
    3. Eriksen

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. Surgery suggests much longer than 2 weeks for me.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  15. Transfer time

    TEAM:
    Migs, Lewis
    Zaba, Collins, Coleman, Dawson, Fonte
    Ramsey, Ozil, Moses, HBA, Eriksen
    Sturridge, Giroud, Benteke

    0,6 in bank, 1 FT

    What do you think about going -4 for a

    Benteke, HBA > Rooney, Barkley or Arnautović (dunno which one I should take)

    Any suggestions and help really appreciated!

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
  16. Very happy I did Theo > Yaya last night, first gamble of the season has paid off and caught the price rise

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
  17. Really don't know what to do now with Walcott out do I take a 12 point hit as I have already taken an 8 point hit and if so for who already have michu can't afford Ozil :(

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. 12 pt hits are rarely advisable. If you can get 11 out then leave him for a week.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. I can field 11 but then I have to put up with price drop for Walcott and will have to play Barkley and brady

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
  18. Top Six Walcott Replacements

    If money is no option here are my top walcott replacements in order

    Ozil
    Michu
    Oscar
    Ramsey
    Yaya Toure
    Eriksen

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. AP

      Eriksen that low? Even with their fixtures? Hmmmmm.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. Compared to the others yes....as Spurs aren't exactly banging them in at the moment. He's definitely a great option though. Sixth best midfielder to own in my opion.

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
      2. Agree he should be third or fourth.

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
    2. :-D I have the top four!!!

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    3. Wally and RvP to Ozil and Rooney for a -4 yay or ney?
      I'm 0.1 short of Wally-->Ozil.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. that's exactly what I did.

        It's reassuring to see that someone else is considering the same move

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
    4. agree but no place for HBA?
      Golden Ball this year

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    5. Ozil
      Michu
      Eriksen
      Oscar
      Ramsey
      Yaya

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    6. Eriksen above Ramsey imo.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    7. I'm not sure Yaya Toure belongs in that list Jonty, especially above Eriksen. He's a DM who's got lucky with 2 free kicks and slack marking from a corner

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. You still not getting box-to-box? ;-)

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
        1. Quite right....new manager, new system..Yaya at last is now an option...you've waited a long time for this moment Doosra..enjoy it.

          Who knows...maybe Sidwell will be next in the credible def mid category? ;-)

          • 1 year, 2 months ago
      2. I would have said that a few weeks back..but its time us old pros got into the new mindset of the 2013/14 season. Yaya is far more attacking this year and is suddenly a free kick maestro. Yes it looks like he gets lucky...but thing is, he's getting lucky alot so far and when that happens luck becomes skill.

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
    8. Ozil
      Michu
      Eriksen
      Oscar
      Ramsey
      Toure

      for me.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. so u just copied me then :P

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
        1. Haha have an upvote then. Didn't actually see them.

          • 1 year, 2 months ago
    9. If you have Giroud already i would put Mich above Ozil.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    10. I'll probably be getting Ramsey or maybe Oscar.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    11. Mine would be:

      Özil
      Michu
      Oscar
      Eriksen

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    12. Id pop Gerrard in there too, has both suarez and sturridge to feed and is playing sunderland this week.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. ..With suarez back his penalties will go up too. Differential potential!

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
    13. Ramsey for me as ut frees up funds to bolster dfence. Baines looks to good not to have, then theres Vidic, Terry, Zaba, Vert so I cant afford Micu, Eriksen, Oscar, Yaya as I;ve got Roo, Ratfface and Giroud up front!

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    14. Small Paul at 7.0 for spurs? I like his stats.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    15. .

      Ozil
      Oscar
      Michu
      Arnautovic
      Lamela
      Mirallas

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  19. Michu or Ozil for Theo?

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. See above...Ozil for me, with Michu very close second.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. I agree with that top three mate, the bottom three could be in any order in my opinion. Thanks for the reply.

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
      2. Maybe Mata and Hazard will be back in vogue at some point...

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
    2. Leaning towards michu

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. His fixtures are so enticing, it's hard for me to ignore him.

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
    3. Ozil

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  20. cazorla is meant to be back the 28th though?

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. cazorla will be back after the international break

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  21. on the bright side we can all buy wally back for 9.0 in a few weeks :D

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
  22. Please help I really cant decide between Brady or Whittingham? Cheers.

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. Brady. Whittingham is not good enough at this level, sadly.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    2. coin toss really

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  23. 2 free transfers, worth an 8 point hit?

    Walcott, Ward-Prowse, RVP and Benteke to Michu, Ramsey, Rooney and Suarez?

    Can't bring myself to bring in Ozil at over £4m more than Ramsey, when it effectively means no Michu or Suarez. What say you?

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
  24. -8 point hit or wildcard?

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. ccc

      -8 imo

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  25. A) 8.5 or under striker
    B) 6.2 or under midfielder (not Ramsey, can be Barkley)
    C) 7.2 or under midfielder (not Barkley, can be Ramsey)

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. Fun game, give me

      A) Lukaku
      B) Noble
      C) Sigurdsson

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  26. Christ, I have no team, at all. Like none. I've taken the 'must not take a hit' rule/challenge I've set for myself too far. Lost 0.4m on Eriksen, and now 0.2m and rising on Ozil. Taking a hit feels like losing now, it's never paid off for me. Maybe I should change my rule to 'can take hit if your player gets injured'. Because 3 of them are all out.

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. I'm ok with 3-4 hits in the first 12 weeks, team value is nice come WC time

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
      1. Yes, especially when the markets are as volatile as they are at the minute

        • 1 year, 2 months ago
  27. Not that any of ya'll care, but my pals don't follow footy, so I come here form time to time. I'm doing

    Wally -> Brady (have (Özil) & Dzeko-> Rooney

    Leaves exact cash for Sturridge to Suarez should I feel the need after this week.

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
  28. ok seeing as i didnt get a clear answer here is my front 8 and i need to bench one of them:

    oscar, moses, toure, eriksen, michu
    giroud, sturridge, lukaku

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. dont want to help u incase you finish above me

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  29. -4 for Theo out definitely.

    Robin please please please be fit by Friday. Please.

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
    1. +10000000

      Lukaku might be the guy I get, even though I'm currently Giroud-less

      I tried the RvP to Lukaku move just now. I could sell Chester to Baines and still have 4.6 left

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
    2. So many injuries!

      I'm fortunate enough to have 2 FT so Theo and Benteke are definitely out of my team, just going to wait til Friday to see if RVP is a goner too for -4.

      • 1 year, 2 months ago
  30. Arnautovic or Whittingham?

    • 1 year, 2 months ago
