Monitor – Adebayor and Eriksen

As Tottenham’s momentum under Tim Sherwood continues to build, two of their first-team have emerged as leading contenders for our Fantasy attention. Since the departure of Andre Villas-Boas, Emmanuel Adebayor has played a part in six (three goals and three assists) of Spurs’ 11 goals over five matches, whilst Christian Eriksen has chipped in with three goals and an assist.

With 36 points apiece in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game, many wildcard drafts currently include one of the duo in light of Sherwood’s penchant for attacking football. Both are still very favourably priced, with Adebayor slightly more expensive at 7.8 to 7.3 and, as interest intensifies, we cast an eye over the pair’s recent displays and also compare them to other options in their respective classifications.

          I dont get this, why not have a player you know starts on the bench if you where to get injuries etc? I doubt there is a risk he will be rising anytime soon, since he is not playing.

          I dont see the logic here, but its a game, and you do what you want. Best of luck.

    It is amazing how certain all the people in here are about Aguero starting this gameweek. Yeah, he is back from injury and scored in the FA-cup. Yeah he is better than Negredo and Dzeko.

    But people seems to be totally ignoring the following :

    He has just been out with an injury and might get eased back into action.
    Pellegrini can afford easing him into action, given the relative weak opponent at home.
    Dzeko is performing very well at the moment.
    Negredo is performing very well at the moment.

    It baffles me the certainty people have in him starting.

        If we stay at The Etihad, do you really prefer Aguero 15-20 minutes over Negredo in 70-75 minutes?

        I get the price rise argument, he is rising tonight, but i doubt he will rise once more before the forthcoming gameweek. Then why not just get him after the Cardiff game (unless that 0,1m is a deciding factor whether or not you can afford him)?

          I have yet to see them let up at the Etihad, so Cardiff tight for 60 and Aguero unlocking their defending is a narrative I could fall for, though you're probably right on Negredo.

          Most of the price movement is on Friday and Saturday before lineups lock, so I'm not so sure that he can't rise again.

          If I had Negredo I would be tempted to hold, but as I'm on WC it's a no-brainer for me.

            Youre right, he might rise again of course, in a day or two we know =)

            I am also on WC, and i am getting Negredo over Aguero, then im gonna upgrade Negredo to Aguero in a couple of weeks time.

            But i have a solid total value, so i can still afford him even if he should rise, 2,3,4,5,6 times =) I dont mind losing a bit cash for a more predictable/safer option.

            Best of luck with your WC team mate =)

      "I wouldn't want to rely on either Hudson or Burner. No one can say who is more likely to be starter (and whoever does start in the next two will probably be on the end of hammerings and do more harm to their reputation)."

    I'd keep Negredo as you can't guarantee how long Aguero will play this weekend. Negredo is likely to be on for most of the game, if not all of it. So if you jump early, you might find Negredo giving you double points with Aguero giving a 10 minute cameo and 1 point.

    Put it this way, I can't see you losing points by keeping Negredo, but I can see you losing points with Aguero. The only reason to pick Aguero is to save cash. If I was looking to save cash I'd swap in Silva instead of Yaya.

    With respect, you need another hitter in midfield like Lallana
