Selection

Watchlist Update – Left-backs dominate among defensive options

We are taking the opportunity of the international break to do a more in-depth update of our Watchlist.

Each option is ranked according to different factors to help managers work out their appeal for Fantasy Premier League.

We started off with the goalkeepers earlier this week, and now we’ve moved onto defenders.

Marcos Alonso (£6.8m) currently tops the defensive section of our Watchlist, which is no surprise given his form and fixtures. No player in the whole of FPL has more points than the Chelsea man thus far, who has registered a goal and five assists in the first four Gameweeks. Fantasy Football Scout members who read our analysis of Alonso earlier in the week will know that certain aspects of his form have the potential to be sustainable too. That is encouraging for the Spaniard as he prepares for favourable matches against Cardiff (home) and West Ham (away) up next.

Just behind Alonso is another of the triumvirate of premium left-backs in Manchester City’s Benjamin Mendy (£6.4m). The Frenchman also has five assists to his name thus far, as well as returning points in every match of 2018/19. His presence in the final third is what has underpinned his distribution in the early part of the campaign, no defender receiving more passes in that area of the pitch than Mendy so far. Where he falls just below Alonso is potential for clean sheets. While City’s fixtures are a little kinder than Chelsea’s, the champions have conceded the same number of goals from half as many big chances.

Completing the trio of left-side full-backs is Andrew Robertson (£6.1m) who goes into Gameweek 5 also in top form. The Scottish international has collected three clean sheets, two assists and six bonus, the only defender with more additional points is Alonso. Robertson’s key strength is the amount of time he is spending in opposition penalty boxes; no defender has more than his 17 touches. His only detrimental factor is that of Unfavourable Fixtures, given that he faces Tottenham (away), Chelsea (away) and Manchester City (home) in the next four Gameweeks. Those three sides have combined for 30 goals scored since the start of the campaign.

Also carrying the Unfavourable Fixtures tag is Jose Holebas (£4.8m), but that doesn’t stop him from holding onto fourth place in our Watchlist. The Watford man has a goal and four assists in as many Gameweeks and is also the designated indirect free-kick and corner taker. The fact that he sits second for total score among defenders (34) despite keeping one clean sheet shows that he can continue to impress throughout a run of games that sees him face Manchester United (home) and Arsenal (away) between now and Gameweek 7. Crucially, an advantage he has over many of the in-vogue premium options is his price, although it is steadily on the rise.

Currently averaging 7.67 points per game, Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier (£6.0m) is also worthy of a high place on our Watchlist. Despite missing out on the opening match of the campaign, only four defenders have scored more FPL points than him so far. Trippier’s appeal in 2018/19 has improved considerably since being handed some of Christian Eriksen’s (£9.4m) set-piece duties, including direct free-kicks. His corners have placed him joint-top of the list for chances created when we filter the numbers to just Gameweeks 2, 3 and 4 – the ones in which he has played. The former Burnley man is also top of the pile for crosses into the box during that time as well. However, we have to warn potential suitors that Trippier does carry the Rotation Risk factor with a busy schedule coming up for Spurs and Mauricio Pochettino’s propensity to swap him in and out of the starting line-up with Serge Aurier (£5.9m).

One of the few promising defensive assets at Manchester United in the first four Gameweeks has been Luke Shaw (£5.1m). He has a goal, an assist and a clean sheet to his name and has been the only member of the Red Devils’ back-four to start every match. Crucially, only Alonso has had more efforts on goal than Shaw at this point, suggesting that if he can hold onto his place in the team (with Ashley Young also available) Shaw can become the best route into the Man United defence. After all, a first clean sheet in Gameweek 4 suggests some promise for upcoming home meetings with Wolves (Gameweek 6) and Newcastle (Gameweek 8). Considering the addition of goal threat to his shutout potential, he could soon provide better value than De Gea, who is currently £0.8m more expensive.

Shkodran Mustafi (£5.4m) has emerged as the primary route into Arsenal’s defence for their favourable run of fixtures. The German international delivered on his brewing goal threat in Gameweek 4 by netting in the Gunners’ 3-2 win at Cardiff. It’s a trip to Newcastle next before Everton and Watford come to the Emirates Stadium in Gameweeks 6 and 7 respectively. However, while we’ve handed a Favourable Fixtures factor to Mustafi, we can’t give him higher than a B for form as Unai Emery’s side are yet to keep a clean sheet in 2018/19.

Next up is Bournemouth’s Steve Cook (£4.6m). The centre-back has already earned one price rise this season after his 14-point haul in Gameweek 2 but has the potential to continue his form. Bournemouth have favourable fixtures from a defensive perspective with Leicester City, Crystal Palace and Southampton all set to visit the Vitality Stadium between now and Gameweek 9. Furthermore, a trip to out-of-form Burnley in Gameweek 6 also looks kind for the Cherries too. Cook also carries some goal threat a well as his Potential Bargain factor.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£4.1m) has fallen down the Watchlist somewhat in recent weeks but still deserves to remain in the conversation. Firstly, the Crystal Palace defender has held onto his Potential Bargain tag given that he has earned just one price rise in 2018/19. Secondly, the Eagles still have a kind run of fixtures which sees them travel to Huddersfield in Gameweek 5 and host Newcastle in Gameweek 6.

We have changed our chosen Leicester defender from Ricardo Pereira (£5.1m) to Ben Chilwell (£5.0m). While the former is currently ahead on assists (two to zero) and total score (19 to 12), we believe that Chilwell has the potential to outperform his new colleague in the coming weeks. Analysis in the Members Area shows that Chilwell has played more successful passes in the final third than Pereira and his heat map shows he is spending more time in there too. All that despite the fact that right-back Pereira has been deployed in midfield twice this season. In either case, there is potential for clean sheets for Leicester assets with a factor of Favourable Fixtures attached to them.

Completing the list is budget man Ryan Bennett (£4.0m). Fantasy managers may wish to incorporate Wolves cover into their defensive rotation over the next six Gameweeks and he looks the most appropriate. The reigning Championship winners have home matches against Burnley and Southampton coming up as well as trips to Crystal Palace and Brighton. Crucially, they have allowed the same number of big chances as Manchester City so far in 2018/19; only Liverpool and Bournemouth have conceded fewer.

    4. Team Bobcat

      I think not.

      Your only concern really is playing players with Rich Zaha and Mkhi missing out last week.

      Rich will be back in 2 wks, zaha may be back next week (monitor) and Mkhi may start next week also.

      There are still too many ifs and mays so I would simply look to Mkhi/Rich to Maddison (guaranteed player short and long term) to tie you over for the time being. Rich the obvious switch as there is potential to get burnt should mkhi regain his spot next week. Mkhi to Maddison could pay off also as Rich will get back into the team with little fuss anyway.

  3. Tmel

    Maddison worth the extra 1.2 over Ghezzal?

    1. ZTF

      Yeah

    2. Holmes

      yes

  4. MTPockets

    Basic Q - Why do members stats tables options not include fantasy data like points, ppm, ppg?

    Am I just not seeing them, or a licensing thing, or...?

    Crazy that if it wasn't for Maddison's ridiculous assist his ownership would be much less than it is right now. He is a great pick, tho

      That’s what you get for benching Alonso every week just because he’s no longer a WB 😉

  12. Rashford FC

    Walcott > Maddison -4?

    A. Yes

    5. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      How about your bench? Not worth if you still have playing bench imo

      1. Rashford FC
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Stephens or AWB would be coming on depending on who’s 1st sub

    6. child of God
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      No. Unless walcott's ruled out for the next game

    7. Rashford FC

      Cheers all

    8. HIAFL (Howe to Train your D…

      no way no

  13. TerryVenables
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Sterling too expensive or worth the gamble on WC?
    Have exact funds for...
    -Patricio-
    -Alonso-Mendy-Shaw-
    -Hazard-Sterling-Mane-Maddison-
    -Aguero-Wilson-Mitrovic-

    1. Rossi3254
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Worth the gamble id say as he is the easiest player to upgrade to salah at some point down the line if you feel like you need to

    2. Where has all the rum gone?
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Looks good. What's the bench

      1. TerryVenables
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Not a good bench.
        -Hamer-AWB-Bennett-Hojbjerg

    3. Hurry Can
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      The only thing Sterling is not good option is his nailedness. If he nailed, yes worth the gamble

  14. tafrère
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Walcott -> David Silva when Walcott will be about to drop = no brainer ?

    Have just enough money in the bank to make the move.

    1. Bucket Man
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I would if nothing else.

      1. tafrère
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Tomkins and Zaha other players uncertain for GW5.

        1. Bucket Man
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          I have Zaha too, hopefully good news, if you have decent bench it looks a good move 🙂

          1. tafrère
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            Cheers.

    2. We Will Klopp you
      • 3 Years

      Go for it

      1. tafrère
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        You don't think another midprice mid could be a better choice, like Pedro or Maddison ?

        1. We Will Klopp you
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Depends on what your team looks like, are you missing any essential players? Silva will likely outscore Pedro or Maddison but there's a 1.5m difference so i'd think they'd be better value. Just depends on if you need the money elsewhere.

          1. tafrère
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            I'm missing Hazard, Robertson or Kane...

            1. tafrère
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 11 months ago

              Even Lukaku...

              1. We Will Klopp you
                • 3 Years
                1 year, 11 months ago

                Wouldn't consider Kane or Luk essential. Hazard isn't a must if you have Mane & Salah. Not sure about bringing Robbo in right now with his fixtures and the congestion, although I'm keeping him.

    3. Ambrosiana Inter
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Transfer with confidence

      1. tafrère
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        I was indeed really impressed with David Silva but there's always rotation risk I guess, even if I consider him the most nailed on Man City mid.

        1. Ambrosiana Inter
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Walcott carries more rotten risk then Silva

          1. Ambrosiana Inter
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            I m getting silva in on wildcard...

            1. tafrère
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 11 months ago

              Good luck then, will probably follow you!

                Cheers

  15. Bucket Man
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Not really tempted by a wildcard but a draft without Salah looks quite good, until I realise there is no Salah :O
    Alison, Hamer
    Alonso, Mendy, Shaw, Dotherty, AWB
    Mane, Alli, Pedro, Fraser, Billing
    Aguero, Auba, Mitrovic

    1. Ambrosiana Inter
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Time to drop Alison as well...I do on wildcard...midfield look weak

      1. Bucket Man
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        I'm saving wildcard for now anyway, as I don't want to get rid of Salah or Mane, and I'm undecided on Arsenal players, best goalkeeper, cheaper mid and forward options as I'm sure a few are. Just bored with International break!

        1. Ambrosiana Inter
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Yeah lol international break always a pain...

    2. Hurry Can
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      If no Salah, there need Hazard & Mane.

    1. Bunk Moreland
      • 4 Years

      Is it a con that you never considered Salah?

      1. Ambrosiana Inter
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        No I don’t consider it a con, I have point it out for those who consider it a Con and could have pointed it out as a con...

    2. Rossi3254
      • 2 Years

      You have the funds for ozil and vardy to maddison and Auba, still covering the same teams just dont really think ozil is a great pick atm

      1. Ambrosiana Inter

        Yeah I have auba at the moment , Ozil is a tricky player but if he catches fire he can deliver big points..I like ur comment though as I d never consider Ozil as captain , and the same for vardy so perhaps ur way is the right way as it ll give me the option of captaining either auba or kun

          Im just not sure his starting place is nailed at the moment, assuming they keep playing 2 holding mids that leaves 4 spots further forward 2 of which look like being taken by Auba and Laca now leaving 2 more between Ozil Ramsey Mkhi and Iwobi

      One too many differentials for me at this point.

      1. Ambrosiana Inter
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        I have to admit I m not a big fan of templates...I followed it this season and I ended up not liking my squad...the good news is that I have made 2.1 mil profit...

          well probably more like 0.9 😉

    4. Robe Wan

      Ozil out

    I'm a noob and everyone suggests different things to me which mess with my head. Christ

    1. Robe Wan
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Tough times. The wisdom of the crowd here can really help over a season

      The key is to filter out the noise. Taking Salah out for example could destroy your OR

      1. NUFCAndrew
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Salah is the main issue. Deciding between him and Mane is driving me nuts

    2. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Decide what you want to do and then ask random questions here, it helps...

      1. NUFCAndrew
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        By the time I finish the Salah/Mane debate the IB will be over

        1. Robe Wan
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Just keep both. I have and if anyone can score aginstbtough opponents it’s Liverpool

          1. NUFCAndrew
            • 4 Years

            Im on a WC

  18. the dom 1

    so what are all the Mkhi owners doing?

    a. keeping

    b. selling

    if B who are you selling him for?

    Cheers

    1. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I’d be selling if I had him.

      Maddison Pedro, all better options

    2. Bucket Man
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I'd keep if I had him if he doesn't play this week get rid. No real stand out mid option at that price for me.

    3. Hurry Can
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      wait for international games first.

    4. Robe Wan
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I’d sell personally next friday

    5. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      thanks boys I sit on him until next week but using WC if that makes any difference?

    6. Bunk Moreland
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I sold for Schürrle to upgrade elsewhere.

  19. Jacky boy
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Do you think defoe may be a threat to wilson?

    1. Bucket Man
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Not if he keeps playing as he is.

    2. Hurry Can
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      not at all

    3. Ambrosiana Inter
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Is this fuy still around ? Lol Defoe...he ll come good though I m sure he ll score 4/5 but no, not threatening Wilson atm

  20. child of God

    I don't get why managers are so quick to ship walcott out, seems a very reckless move for those that brought him in last week. I just hope he's passed fit and makes you all pay by getting a brace

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I kept him and took out Mkhi instead. Figured if Walcott doesn't make it at least he can't troll with a bench cameo 1 pointer

    2. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Still wondering whether to play him or not, even if he is fit. Benching headache this GW.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        What are your options?

    3. Rossi3254
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I dont get why so many managers brought walcott in to their teams in the first place. I know it was bcos he plays for the same team as richarlison and good fixtures but a quick look at the stats and his goal threat is so much lower than richarlisons

    4. gergin
      • 4 Years

      +0,1 and all are happy.

  21. Robe Wan
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Am I saving this week lads? Or are the asterisks worth a transfer?

    Etheridge (fabs)

    Mendy. Robbo. Alonso (AWB. Bamba)

    Salah. Mane Pedro* Bilva*. Maddison

    Kun arnie (Kamara)

    1. child of God
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      .no transfer needed at the moment imo

  22. Lignja

    No Arsenal players in wc teams? Nice fixtures...

    1. Pieterke30
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      They are not playing well at all

      Worse than Leicester actually

    2. Ambrosiana Inter
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Deffo try to put in 2 but is a mess on deciding which ones..think auba, Ozil and Ramsey could be the best 3 nailed options...not considering defenders

    3. tafrère
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Bad defence
      Any mid could be dropped
      Lacazette uncertainty of starting
      Aubameyang too expensive

    4. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      with mkhi on the bench last gw its thrown a massive spanner in the works I think now?

    5. Bunk Moreland
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I took both mine out for a hit this week. Slighly ragy after 0 + 1 Points against Cardiff, but I had another look at their fixtures and they suddenly didn't look so strong anymore. I'd expect them to concede in 4/5 next matches which rules out a defender and with Ozil and Auba not really performing to their level and Mkhi, Ozil, Ramsey and Laca all rotations risks, I opted out.

    6. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Have Bellerin, regret getting him on WC. Im hoping they start playing Torreira soon, at least there'd be some steel in that midfield.

    7. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      There isn't really a standout option

    8. Boris Bodega: Holly's …
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I have a feeling Lacazette is about to start scoring big

  23. The Greenback Boogie
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    If you had the choice to go with either Alonso or Salah on WC, which one would you go for?

    Here are my drafts :

    Team Salah :

    Patricio - Hamer
    Mendy - Shaw - Holebas - Bennett - AWB
    Hazard - Salah - Mane - Billing - Camarasa
    Ings - Mitro - Kun

    Team Alonso :

    Patricio - Mccarthy
    Mendy - Alonso - Shaw - AWB - Bennett
    Hazard - Mane - Fraser - Maddison - Seri/Anyone
    Lacazette - Kun - Mitro

    Team Alonso also has 0.8 ITB which means if I downgrade Maddison I can get in Kane. I think team Alonso is better balanced but I am not sure if going Salah-less is wise.

    Your thoughts?

    Any sugestions

    1. RoysCallerAnne

      top 10k any season
      top 1k any season

      (if you qualify) are good standard leagues

      Try LMS, brings managers down to earth 😉

  25. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years

    Maddison or Vardy?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      On a WC?

    2. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Vardy

    3. Goat
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I brought in both on WC

    4. RoysCallerAnne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Depends what upgrade you make with the difference but in face value - Vardy

    5. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Vardy

    6. child of God
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Maddison for me as I think he'll be involved in more goals

  26. Goat
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Start
    A) Shaw (wat)
    B) Slab Head (bou)

    1. Bury94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Tough one, I'd probs go Shaw

    2. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Tough one, damn. Probably slab head.

    3. HIAFL (Howe to Train your D…

      slabs

  27. Mishon

    Current team. Have 2 FT.

    Kepa/Stek
    Mendy/Coleman/WB/Robertson/Alonso
    Pedro/Moura/Mkhi/Mane/Richarlison
    Aguero/Firmino/Kamara

    Was thinking of doing Rich/Firm to Madis/Vardy, or should I WC?

  28. RoysCallerAnne
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    It's only 32 days until the next international break. Sure that'll fly by in no time! 🙂

      Ugh

  29. Warby84
    • 5 Years

    I have pereyra in and I’m quite excited.. heard he’s the best midfield to grace Watford since Barnesy!!

    1. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I so want a Watford player in my team, but need to stick with the plan and save the FT. Arghhh

  30. Dybala10

    Just out of interest, who are people picking as GK on their WC?

    Not played mine yet but currently have Ederson and not as content as I thought I would be.

    1. The Greenback Boogie
      • 3 Years

      McCarthy & Patricio.
