Best Bournemouth players to sign on FPL in 2018/19 – The Complete Members’ Analysis

Josh King, Charlie Daniels, Junior Stanislas, Nathan Ake: Bournemouth players have mostly been good to Fantasy managers since the club’s promotion to the Premier League in 2015, offering decent returns for minimal investment.

Last season’s offerings were something of a disappointment from a Fantasy perspective, however, with no Bournemouth player reaching double figures for goals, assists or clean sheets.

King scored half as many goals (eight) as he managed in 2016/17, while Jordan Ibe’s total of six assists was the best any Cherries player could muster.

The Bournemouth defence was particularly porous, meanwhile, keeping only six clean sheets (a league-low shared with relegated Stoke City) in their 38 league matches.

Part of Bournemouth’s appeal from a Fantasy standpoint is that by now we mostly know what to expect from the south coast side. Eddie Howe is the longest-serving manager in the Premier League, following Arsene Wenger’s departure from Arsenal, having been on the books at the Vitality Stadium for well over five years. Many of Bournemouth’s players have also been with the club for an extended period: King, Daniels, Stanislas, Ryan Fraser, Adam Smith, Simon Francis, Steve Cook and Callum Wilson, among others, have featured in all three seasons that the Cherries have spent in the top flight.

While Howe’s formation is far from settled, having flip-flopped between a conventional back four and a three-man defence last season, the Cherries’ mantra remains comfortingly consistent: attack and attack some more.

    I see Pavard in a lot of teams and seems to be in the predicted starting 11. I know we will know if he starts this round prior to deadline, but whats his likelihood of starting looking to QFs and further?

    1. palace ash
      • 14 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Personally, I wouldn't pick a France LB or RB. Not nailed.

        • 9 Years

        Currently on Boyata, Miranda, Carvajal, Granqvist and Strinic. But unsure on Boyata as starter (especially looking forward) and have no captaincy option for today. Ofc Pavard leaves alot to ask of o captain, but atleast i would have a pick

        Thanks 🙂

    GTG?
    No WC or BB left

    Courtois - Mvogo
    Godin - Miranda - Trip - Carvajal - Strinic
    Isco - Modric - Coutinho - Claesson - Inui
    Kaku - Hazard - Kane

    1. Atimis
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Ive been also thinking about downgrading Inui more to CSanchez or bringing RRod or Granqvist in place of Godin

    2. Karan14
      • 8 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      CS odds suggest that a Sweden clean sheet is less likely than France, Uruguay, England & even Switzerland. Brazil, Spain, Croatia & Belgium favourites for CS.

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Thats good info! Thanks

  5. Karan14
    • 8 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Best captain for last day other than Kane?

    1. Christina.
      • 14 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Crank

      1. Karan14
        • 8 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Swiss have scored in every match and it just feels like the Granq train has passed now.

  6. Wally banter
    • 11 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    suggestions please

    Neymar, Kane, Lukaku

    Isco, coutinho, claesson, inui, cheryzhev

    carvajal, miranda, hernandez, granq, trippier

    subasic, Muslera

    1.1 ITB

  7. Christina.
    • 14 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Time for differentials - the tournie is over.

    Pogba
    KdB
    Perisic
    Rakitic(Nice one Gamzy)
    Giroud

    1. Karan14
      • 8 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      I’d add Iniesta to that list as well.

      1. Christina.
        • 14 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        yeah, just worried about gametime. Gets hooked around 70 mins.

        1. Christina.
          • 14 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          Have you got any diiff's in your final team?

          1. Karan14
            • 8 Years
            5 years, 11 months ago

            Yes I’ve got 2-3. Ramos, Iniesta/Lingard, double Belgium attack and Neymar over Kane.

        2. Karan14
          • 8 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          Should start every game but yes 70-80 mins and he’s off.

    2. Meinhoff
      • 11 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Pavon, Eriksen, Mertens for me

      1. Christina.
        • 14 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        nice. I'm toying with the last midf spot. I've had Pogba and Eriksen. Even KdB.

        Most of the midf's are on the one side of the draw...I want someone from the other side.

        1. Karan14
          • 8 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          Pogba & KDB play too deep even I considered them but CM for 9-10m is too much. Eriksen out of those.

          1. Christina.
            • 14 Years
            5 years, 11 months ago

            Those FK's will go in sooner or later.

  8. Wally banter
    • 11 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    kane or double belgium attack agianst japan?

    and t/o hazard/lukaku to kane for next round given england progress?

    1. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Going with Kane + Lukaku. I prefer to spread across diff teams.

      1. Fishy-o
        • 7 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        This

  9. palace ash
    • 14 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    What to do...

    ???, Olsen
    ???, Cavajal, Granqvist, Rodriguez, Miranda
    Coutinho, Modric, Isco, ???, Inui
    ???, Hazard, Costa

    A) Muslera, Varane, Carrasco, Griezmann (no England)
    B) Pickford, Meunier, Lingard, Mbappe

    1. Fishy-o
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      B

  10. Fishy-o
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    No WC left
    BB now coz I might not get a full 15 after this round

    Courtois Olson
    Carvajal Godin Miranda Granqvist Fagner
    Courtinho Isco Modric Claesson Gazinsky
    Costa Lukaku Kane

    1. Fishy-o
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      0.5 ITB

      Do you think I’ve got to many Sweden players? They could easily go out

      1. BigBarn
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Possibly one too many, yeah. It's a risk.

      2. Midlands Saint73
        • 6 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Yes I think Swiss will go through

  11. Wally banter
    • 11 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Is kompany fit? boyata a safe choice??

    1. Fishy-o
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Both risky

  12. Christina.
    • 14 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Everyone has just given up on Ru$$ians? Spain have been all over the place in defence and the Ru$$ian support will be massive.

    I can't see Spain CS.

    1. Fishy-o
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Thinking the same. If I still had my WC I’d have Cheryshev

      1. Christina.
        • 14 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        get him and sell him next rd?

        1. Fishy-o
          • 7 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          Could do but we’ve only got 3 transfers next round and if results go against us we might need that 1 transfer to get 11 starters

          1. Christina.
            • 14 Years
            5 years, 11 months ago

            Might be worth the risk.

            1. Fishy-o
              • 7 Years
              5 years, 11 months ago

              Yes depending if you can afford him over without losing a premium player.
              Also have you still got your WC?

              1. Christina.
                • 14 Years
                5 years, 11 months ago

                no wc

                1. Fishy-o
                  • 7 Years
                  5 years, 11 months ago

                  I’d play it safe then

    2. Legomané
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      No WC, no passengers...

    3. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Russia were cack in the final game against decent opposition. I expect spain to win 2 or 3-0

      1. Christina.
        • 14 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        that wasn't their full team.

        1. ritzyd
          • 6 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          I know but still. Russia are cack

    4. Number One
      • 10 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      True Spain is horrible in defense. I already have Russia forward for massive differential.

    5. LuckyLQ
      • 5 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Russia struggles against Uruguay, could be the same case against Spain.

      1. Christina.
        • 14 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Uru def 10x better than Spains

  13. Legomané
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 6 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Morning all.
    Thoughts/suggestions very much appreciated as always 🙂

    Alisson 4.0
    TSilva Lovren Carvajal Granqvist Pavard
    Coutinho Modric(c2) Isco Claesson Quintero
    Griezmann(c1) Hazard(c3) Kane(c4)

    Some things I'm considering:
    • Alisson > Muslera / Pickford
    • Pavard (if rotated) > Hernandez
    • Carvajal > Pique (goal threat)
    • Modric > Rakatic (interesting stats)
    • Quintero/Claesson > 4.4 fodder

    1. Christina.
      • 14 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      template.

      1. Legomané
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 6 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Midfield yes, but then midfield category is void of goodies

    2. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      I like what you got. Although maybe consider bringing in one Belgium defender/gk.

      1. Legomané
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 6 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Meunier is the only one of interest, but I'm not keen to lose Thiago.
        Allisson pick is partly down to no WC, want a GK nailed to semis if possible.

    3. Rinseboy
      • 12 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      decent. Are you bench boosting? Don't fancy Godin over any defenders?

  14. Point-one short
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    What do you think of this lot?

    Kane Kaku Griezmann
    Isco Modric Coutinho Quintero Inui
    Meunier RRod Granq Fagner Dalsgaard
    Muslera Sommer

  15. ritzyd
    • 6 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    A) Kane, Rakitic, Thiago Silva (Inui)
    B) Costa, Modric, Lingard (Dalsgard)
    (Player on bench)

    1. King Klopp
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      A

  16. King Klopp
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    How’s this looking? BB This week and plan to WC next.

    Muslera Schmeichel
    Miranda Dalagaard Meunier Mina Granqvist
    Isco Coutinho Shaqiri Claesson Quintero
    Kane Costa Lukaku

    1. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Looks good

  17. SuperMane Returns
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    How's this looking folks? - using BB here (also still have WC/MC left)

    Muslera(c1)/Olsen
    Granqvist/Carvajal/Pavard/Trippier/Meunier
    Isco/Modric(c2)/Coutinho/Claessen/Coutinho
    Hazard(c3)/Kane(c4)/Costa

    Thanks in advance

    1. SuperMane Returns
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Quintero for 2nd Coutinho ooooops

  18. dzrihan
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Update about Ramos’s ankle injury ?

    Likely to start ?

    1. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Should be ok

  19. UnitednationsXI
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Predictions for the following game (purely in terms of who will qualify)

    1) Sweden v Switzerland
    2) Brazil v Belgium (in quarters)

    I need to predict the right outcome of one game..both are very even

    1. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      I think the swiss get through against sweden - very solid side.

      Brazil vs Belgium is a tough call

    2. Usupremu
      • 5 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Sweden because Switz defense lost Liech and Schar

      Belgium because they play together not for one player like Neymi 🙂

  20. Christina.
    • 14 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    No porras or Argies?

    1. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      The problem is the player you want from both of those sides is 12m. When you cant call if they will progress from round of 16 its too big a risk and money can be spread better elsewhere in my opinion.

  21. OPTA FPL
    • 12 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    who is the best Croatia defender to get?

    1. Legomané
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Lovren for a wee bit of goal threat (Strinic yet to cross or have a pop)

      1. OPTA FPL
        • 12 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        thanks

  22. Number One
    • 10 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    I think Denmark will beat Croatia.

    1. Azathoth
      • 9 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      I hope.i want,i wish.......

    2. LuckyLQ
      • 5 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      and what's your reason?

    3. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      I think Croatia will reach the semis - looked really good in the group games

    4. Fishy-o
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Reason?

  23. Azathoth
    • 9 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Can't decide the 2nd GK

    a) Olsen
    or
    b) Subasic

    (1st is Muslera and will play BB in this round)

    1. LuckyLQ
      • 5 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Subasic more likely to CS imo.

    2. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Subasic

    3. Fishy-o
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Subasic

  24. Mo Mané Mo Problems
    • 10 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    What are people without wildcards yet getting a full squad going to do in terms of transfers?

    Having to transfer in Inui, or Sakai is already pretty inconvient, but (only relevant if they are out) doing it before other teams have played is downright risky AF.

  25. Steager
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Help please on last few decisions:
    A) Costa and Pogba (get .6 extra to invest elsewhere)
    B) Isco and Griesman

    Also who is more likely to get through Swiss or Sweden?
    1)Grabs
    2)RRod.

    Thanks, last two decisions.

    1. Steager
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      1 is Granqvist by the way typo

    2. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      B2

  26. ritzyd
    • 6 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    So who do we think progresses from each fixture in this round?

    Sat 30th
    France vs Argentina 3pm
    Uruguay vs Portugal 7pm

    Sun 1st
    Spain vs Russia 3pm
    Croatia vs Denmark 7pm

    Mon 2nd
    Brazil vs mexico 3pm
    Belgium vs japan 7pm

    Tue 3rd
    Sweden vs switzerland 3pm
    Columbia vs england 7pm

    For me:
    France
    Uruguay
    Spain
    Croatia
    Brazil
    Belgium
    Switzerland
    England

    1. MDK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Sweden v Switzerland and Uruguay v Portugal could both go either way for me

      1. ritzyd
        • 6 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Yeah, for me the tough games are uruguay/portugal - france/argentina - sweden/switzerland

        Also have a funny feeling mex/bra may be tighter than expected

    2. Azathoth
      • 9 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Swe instead of Swi.The others i agree.

    3. LuckyLQ
      • 5 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Looks like it's the popular opinion, expect some upset(s).

      1. ritzyd
        • 6 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Probably England . . . .

    4. Midlands Saint73
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Argentina to show up but agree other than that

      1. ritzyd
        • 6 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        They just look so vulnerable at the back.

  27. arh0910
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Playing bb with this,
    Courtois - Olsen
    Ramos - Carvajal - Toby - Granqvist(C4) - Agustinsson
    Coutinho - Modric - Isco - Pogba(C1) - Quintero
    Lukaku(C3) - Costa(C2) - Rebic
    0.2m ITB
    Chasing ml leader by 40 point. Still have wc so going all in on spain, belgium, sweeden for cs & picking rebic and pogba for differentials

    GTG?

    1. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      I actually quite like the double spain/belgium defence

  28. RossoneriHammer
    • 7 Years

    Is there any thinking in the QF being the best time for the Max Captain?

          Once we reach the semis and final (inc third place) they're all on different days so a chance to move the arm band

            pro's and cons...i just feel the player pool is bigger this week and with so many explosive players (Suarez/Cr7/Messi) the chances are we might still get a massive score. Plus People are avoiding those teams/players it seems.

            Hoping my goal threat def's might come good.
