How Richarlison has adapted to centre-forward role at Everton

Richarlison (£6.9m) has made a mockery of recent suggestions that he cannot play as a centre-forward for Everton.

Two weeks ago we compared his first two performances in that position against his displays as a left attacking midfielder and discovered some discouraging results.

However, it appears both Richarlison and his manager Marco Silva were spurred on by the criticism. They stuck to their guns and persisted with the new role, and in the last two Gameweeks the Brazilian has registered two goals and an assist, averaging 10 points per game.

We are now revisiting the data to see whether or not Richarlison really has adapted to a striker’s role and if recent performances are sustainable or not.

        Interesting!

        Haven't seen United lately. Hows their def? A goalfest at Anfield is possible but having a hard time to figure out the City game.

    6. Atimis
      • 2 Years

    7. gonzalocampos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Who to play? (Maddison owner)
      1) Hojbjerg
      2) Doherty
      3) Wan Bissaka
      4) Maddison to Richarlidson for -4

      1. Prison Mike

      2FT... Need some help fellas.

      A) Mitro & Maddison -> Arnie & Fraser (Have Wilson)

      B) Mitro & Maddison -> Arnie & Gudmundsson

      C) Mitro & Maddison -> Ings/Jiminez & Martial/Felipe Anderson

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        A with deulofeou instead of Fraser

      2. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Arnie & Martial ideally. How about a mini-wildcard for a -4? Anyone else you want to get rid of?

        1. Prison Mike
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 17 days ago

          Not atm, but that would be ideal.

    9. Stoichkov#8
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Best option:

      a) Doherty, Martial, Jimenez
      b) Mendy, Brooks, Wilson
      c) Mendy, Gudmundsson/Brooks, Jimenez

      (WC in GW 15-16)

        Hard to know. Playing 90 didn't help.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        I think Kvacic might get the nod

    11. kime67

      got barley for -4. im a wise man

      1. Patch

        What transfer you doing next?

      2. kime67
        • 1 Year

        saving 2ft for the ib. salah and barkley to sterling and rich probably

        1. Grievez
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 17 days ago

          Not another IB? When?

            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 9 Years

            After GW12

      3. timawflowers
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Me too, might still start

      4. Art Vandelay
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Big mistake. Barley is a cereal underperformer.

        1. JustPark
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 17 days ago

          Yep. Not biting for barley trap.

    12. Misteak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Is it really a terrible idea to downgrade Salah to Mane?

      I have 2FTs and 0ITB. Maddison needs replacing but I'm obviously limited to 6.7 mids, which excludes anyone I'd want long-term. Doing Salah to Mane would allow me to spend up to 9.9 on Mads replacement.

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Could be a misteak.

      2. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Bench and carry to the intl break

      3. Emp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        I definitely would not do that now . There's a high chance they switch to 4231 for this game where salah has a big positional advantage over mane . If you not happy to switch Maddison to anyone cheaper than him maybe just switch a defender to play four at the back this week and roll the two to do that move next week potentially when they should be back to 433 away from home

    13. Shearer & Sutton
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Maddison ->
      A) D. Silva
      B) Martial
      C) F. Anderson

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        B if you have plans for the 1m saving over D.Silva.

        1. Shearer & Sutton
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 17 days ago

          Thanks atm no any plans but 1m is useful later for sure.

    14. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      A. Wilson + TAA/Doherty or...
      B. Ings + Trippier ?

      Thanks.

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        A, but Trippier will be very popular in a couple of weeks.

    15. #FPLBhuna
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      A) iheanacho

    16. AXE17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Bring in Gudmundsson or Fraser??

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Times are tough. Fraser will probably be a sell here with a fail soon.

      2. Taking one for the team
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Fraser

      3. Monkey Hanger
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Gudmundsson may lose some set pieces with Brady fit again.

    17. TerryVenables
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Lamela likely to start this weekend? Thinking of bringing him in for Maddison.

      1. Emp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Yes he is

    18. AXE17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Would you rather have:

      Maddison, Richardson and Mitrovic
      Or
      Mane, Gudmundsson and Kamara
      OR
      Mane, Barley and Success?

    19. Bielsa's Binoculars
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Is Hazard primer to start now for the weekend after playing 60 mins?

      1. Monkey Hanger
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Looking promising imo.

    20. The White Pele
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Maddison & Bennet > Martial & Peltier (-4)?

    21. The Overthinker
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      A) replace Maddison
      B) bench Maddison and start westham defender .

      Still have wc

      1. cpo001
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 16 days ago

        B is what I'm doing - doesn't seem like a bad option, then bank the FT for the IB.

    22. fedolefan
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Seem to have exact cash saved up for a move to get Lolvren. What are people predicting Liverpool's defense lineup at the weekend to be?

      1. Dosh
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        I think he starts if fit.

    23. konrad.sygula95
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Who should I start in place of Maddison this GW?
      A Dunk
      B Hojberg

    24. Tsparkes10
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Keeping TAA i think :)... H-Odoi to playing 4.5? Then Vardy, Schurlle to Arni, Rich next week?

      • Bookkeeper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Will Auba start at the weekend?

      • MMN
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        2 FT, 1.4m ITB. Any thoughts?

        Pat (Hamer)
        Alonso, Robbo, Mendy (Doherty, AWB)
        Hazard, Mane, Bilva, Richa, Fraser
        Aguero, Arnie (Kamara)

        I want Salah C this week but it's a case of Hazard or Salah for the next two (FUL, wat vs EVE, tot) - if I do sell, Hazard will come back in for GW14. Bought for 11m so don’t lose much value either.

        A) Hazard & Bilva > Salah & 7m
        B) Bilva > 8.9m

      • oggyninho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Robertson and Maddison -> Salah and Kiko Femenía for a hit? Leaving me with 0 ITB

      • TerryVenables
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Lamela a good punt replacement for Maddison?

      • Arctic monkeys
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Stuck with this tean and no Idea what to do, some feedback is much appreciated

        Patricio
        Laporte Shaw Alonso
        Hazard Mané Mahrez Maddison
        Laca Firmino Mitro

        Subs: Mccarthy WB Bennett Hojberg

        A- Mitro and Maddison to Arnie and Felipe anderson (-4)
        B- Mitro to Arnie and play Hojberg
        C- Maddison to Martial and keep Mitro for the time being
