    Or
    B:
    Salah--Hazard-Martial-Rich-(Hoijbg)
    Aguero--Arnie--Jimenez

      So fraser and a not nailed back up with good upside vs Jimenez and a nailed 1 to 3 pointer back up. I'd go Jimenez personally

    GTG?

    Ederson
    Robertson Alonso Mendy
    Martial Hazard Mane(C) Richalison
    Wilson Aguero Jimenez

    Boruc Hojbjerg AWB Doherty

    1. Amey
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Yeah
      Put Doherty as 1 st sub imo

        cheers

  3. Big Col
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Which is better?

    A) Maddison & Mendy to Martial & Bellerin -4
    B) Maddison to Kenedy FT
    C) Hold Maddison & play Doherty

    1. Amey
      1 month, 3 days ago

      C

  4. Blanka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Thought I had all of today to mull Maddison to Anderson before price rise.

    I was wrong.

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I dont think Anderson is such great pick, too inconsistent.

      1. Amey
        1 month, 3 days ago

        This

      2. Blanka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Maybe not the best, although they have a fine run of fixtures, and may be worth a punt in Maddison's absence. Also, especially after getting 2 last week, confidence n all that.

    2. Paddington Bear
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Me too. I might just save now and start billing. Billing’s 2 pointer won’t be any bit dissimilar to Maddison recently anyway

      1. Blanka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Change of plan. Diangana looks like my saviour!

    3. MMN
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Has he been good in many games beyond Burnley?

  5. Moin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Any West Ham supporter around?

    Is this Diangana lad nailed?

    1. Blue Lion's Biatch
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      He's not mate but he certainly looks first choice atm

      1. Moin

  6. Jimbo-Jones

    1 month, 3 days ago

    Who’s a better asset? Wilson or Mendy?

    1. Mitro -> Wilson
    2. Mitro / Holebas -> Mendy / 5.4 bench - play 442.

    Patricio
    Robertson Alonso Chilwell (Holebas WB)
    Salah Mané Richarlison Fraser (Masuaku)
    Aguero Arnie Mitro

        No - I've seen this rumour too - he's only looking for confirmation/denial

    2. Fantasynørden

    3. Klein

      1. Klein
        • 3 Years

        Still would be cautious. Dont buy this week imo

  9. Klein

    1 month, 3 days ago

    With noble set to return after suspension who will make way?

    1. Amey
      1 month, 3 days ago

      In ideal world he should be benched.

      1. Klein
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah and arnie will get pens too

            Back to real world. Will it be diangana? Or snodgrass or someone else

            1. Amey
              1 month, 3 days ago

              I think he'll come in for obiang. They'll go with am attacking lineup

  10. balint84

    captain

    A) Kane
    B) Salah
    C) Hazard
    D) Arnie

    1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠

      Gotta be Salah

  11. Fantasy Gold

    I’m really considering Knockaert as my Maddison replacement.

    Fixtures look amazing and he should start with the injuries Brighton have.

    Thoughts?

    1. Amey
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Gudmundsson.
      He is my differential 😛
      Get him mate
      He has given me 36 points in 4 gw i played him

      1. Fantasy Gold
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah I have looked at him too.

        Not so keen on Burnley/fixtures.

    2. Moin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      He is not nailed, avoid.

    3. The Overthinker
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Dont go there. I had him for 3 weeks, gave me just 1 point .

    4. LE GOD - AMERICAN DYCHO (C)
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Rotation risk is Knockaert

    5. Internal Error
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Nah. Too risky given that he isnt nailed

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

    Whats the chances Barkley starts v Everton guys?

    Wondering if I should start Success away to saints over him

    1. Amey

      Less

    2. Moin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Low chance

        • 4 Years

        Cheers Moin, so would you start Success in case of cameo

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Southampton is a good fixture, but is he nailed? not following Watford, sorry.

          1. LE GOD - AMERICAN DYCHO (C)
            • 4 Years

            Pretty nailed while Deeney out injured

              • 5 Years

              worth the risk

  13. Fantasynørden
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Pick one please.

    A) Maddison & Mitrovic -> Martial & Jimenez

    B) Maddison, Mitrovic & Kenedy -> Felipe Anderson, Wilson & Camarasa (-4)

    C) Maddison & Mitrovic -> David Silva & Success

    1. Amey
      1 month, 3 days ago

      A

    2. Becks

      Thinking A myself

    3. Numbuster

      1 month, 3 days ago

      long term A

  14. Rinseboy
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    quick vote to replace Schurle?

    A - Deulefou 
    B - Brooks
    C - Kennedy
    D - Diagnana

    B gives me the cash to do Success to Jiminez next week which is appealing!

        Just ridiculous, surely that's free speech when i backed up with how it was idiotic?

            1 month, 3 days ago

            So did Virg.
            They ought to take feedback on board rather than ban, we pay for articles but they think they're writing for the Daily Mail

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 3 days ago

            I pay to read the articles, surely that allows the right to give criticism...if i was this bad at my job and all that...

            1. Geoff

              • Has Moderation Rights

              1 month, 3 days ago

              As we've discussed in email and I've posted on site, criticism is fine and, like I said yesterday, I'm happy even to Hot Topic criticism if it's considered and not aggressive. I want people to explain why they disagree and that leads to good discussion.

              But there's a way to do these things but other ways that are not alright.

    Or

    Sterling and Brooks/Kenedy

        I do love assertiveness and confidence. They were my planned transfers but Bournemouth fixtures were starting to put me off. Then I noticed West Ham have a fine run for ages!

          I'd consider Diang over Brooks. Get a range of reactions to that on here, but he seems like the value option for the next 10 weeks to me

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 3 days ago

      15 probably

    2. LE GOD - AMERICAN DYCHO (C)

    3. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Waiting until needed or around the expiry.

      Need at least one Arsenal soon.

      Also could have Hazard and Agüero leg breaks in the same week or something and need it then.

    Auba or laca for arsenal fixture shift? Auba is really have a dream goal to shot on target ratio. Sustainable? Laca is central.

        As a general rule, if the decision is close, just go with the cheaper option

    Disappointing that Barkley played last night, probably won’t start weekend now. Who would you start out if these:

    A. Barkley (EVE)
    B. Success (sou)
    C. AWB (TOT)
    D. Bennet (ars)

    Good morning,

    I am contemplating using my triple captain chip on Salah this weekend. I have normally always used it in the dgw's, and with, to put it mildly, varying results (I'm looking at you Aguero (9x3), Kane (1x3) and Gabbiadini (3x3)).

    To try and talk myself out of using it this week, I looked at the FA Cup schedule. The FA Cup Quarter Finals are played on the weekend of 16th of march, clashing with GW31. Liverpool plays Fulham away GW31. This means that,

    IF the dgws this year is GW34 and GW37 (as they have been the last seasons),
    AND Liverpool makes the FA Cup QF
    AND Salah isn't injured in the meantime
    AND Fulham continues to as awful,
    AND Salah gets to play 90x2 in a DGW
    you could potentially get a DGW of ful, CHE (GW34) or ful, new (37)

    I know it's a very hypothetical scenario, but what do you guys think? Is this information at all helpful when trying to figure out whether or not you would use the Salah (tc) this weekend?

    1. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I wouldn't. Liverpool haven't looked at the races for a while. They'll probably destroy Fulham, but I think it's too big of a risk - there will be better opportunities

    2. Parm

      I'd just leave it. One of the top teams will probably have a nice DGW, doesn't have to be Salah/Pool.

    3. Tempestic

      I'm going to do it this week...

    4. noquarternt

      Good luck but I'd definitely wait for a double.

      A double should come up and there are a few potential player this season that make good targets.

      One of Hazard, Agüero, Sterling, Salah, Lacazette will likely have a good double and be on form later in the season.

      Imagine the title race is super close and the top teams all need to win and build up a good goal difference. Some teams could also be cut adrift as targets for spankings by then as well.

    Maddison + Hughes > Martial and bench fodder Hudson Odoi?

    1. Parm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      This is it chief

    2. captainjilflex
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Assuming you havnt got an extra .2 for a playing mid?? Martial defo a good long term pick imo

      1. Dele
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        The other option is Anderson and up to 4.8 on a 5th mid.

        Martial feels a better pick until I wildcard.

        1. captainjilflex
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 3 days ago

          In that case how about anderson for now while west hams fixtures are great, then wildcard when man utds fixtures turn in gw15 or so. i think both are good options as they both have form and fixtures, however martial is on fire.
