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.

              Would appreciate your opinions:

              A) Yaya and Ade > Wilshere/Lallana & Aguero for -4 (Aguero going up tonight, Yaya going down!)

              B) Ade to Giroud for free

              C) Yaya to Wilshere for free

                    I don't have Aguero mate but I do have Zaba, Silva & Yaya. Would you still opt for B in this situation, that's what I'm leaning to.

                  What do we reckon? Just feel like punting on this WC team (Ox --> Ramsey next week)

                  Mannone/ Marshall
                  Zabaleta/ Coleman/ Clyne/ Whittaker/ Chester
                  Hazard/ Silva/ Lallana/ Ox/ Januzaj
                  Suarez/ Aguero/ Guidetti

                  0.8 in the bank

                          Same but I'd rather have him there on the wildcard rather than planning a transfer down the line. If injuries kick in, etc. I might struggle to get him later. Here's hoping though!

                              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.

                              Please help!! Can't decide whether to keep Negredo or upgrade to Aguero?

                              If I upgrade, team would be:

                              Boruc/ Mannone
                              Coleman, zab, azpil, koscielny, Chester
                              Hazard, yaya, januzaj, Wilshire, bacuna
                              Giroud, Aguero, Suarez.

                              Had to downgrade ozil to Wilshire for Aguero.. Does it look ok?

                                                  I think in the short term you need to upgrade either Januzaj or Ki.

                                                              Kun is gonna go up .2 this week so

                                                              2) Wait till next week and do 2 FT

                                                                      But people seems to be totally ignoring the following :

                                                                      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.

                                                                            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)?

                                                                              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.

                                                                                  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 =)

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
