Watchlist Update – Morata bursts onto scene as Wolves improve

We have updated the Watchlist ahead of Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 12.

All four sections have been tackled in one article this time around with attention drawn only to the biggest changes.

Make sure you investigate the widget in full on our sidebar to see who we think you should be monitoring for your squads in the coming weeks.

The only mover in the goalkeeper department is Jordan Pickford (£4.9m) who creeps just above Newcastle shot-stopper Martin Dubravka (£5.0m). There are two tricky fixtures for Everton in the next four as they have to travel to Chelsea and Liverpool but home matches against Cardiff and Newcastle have strong clean sheet potential.

Above him, Kasper Schmeichel‘s (£5.0m) form has increased from C to B as Leicester kept their first clean sheet since Gameweek 7 in their recent win at Cardiff City.

Just below the Dane, Rui Patrício (£4.6m) shakes off his Unfavourable Fixtures factor as Wolves schedule eases a little. After a trip to Arsenal this week, the newly-promoted side have Huddersfield (home) and Cardiff (away) as well as a trip to Newcastle in Gameweek 16. However, the Gameweek 15 visit of Chelsea and Gameweek 17 meeting with Bournemouth keep his fixture factor blank for now.

Ben Foster‘s (£4.5m) schedule swings in a different direction as his Favourable Fixtures factor becomes an Unfavourable Fixtures one. Watford’s next four matches are Southampton (away), Liverpool (home), Leicester (away) and Manchester City (home).

Patrício’s Wolves colleague Matt Doherty (£4.9m) is the only rising defender. That fixture swing is what has underpinned him creeping just past Keiran Trippier (£6.3m), who faces Chelsea (home) and Arsenal (away) in two of the next three Gameweeks. To his credit though, Trippier has finally shaken off his Rotation Risk factor having started the last 10 Premier League matches in a row and featuring only as a late substitute in Spurs’ midweek Champions League win over PSV.

Kiko Femenía (£4.2m) remains on the list as a starting £4.2m defender but Watford’s fixtures (mentioned above) push him to the bottom of the pile. The options from Leicester (Chilwell), Everton (Digne) and Newcastle (Yedlin) all look better for the near future. Femenía’s form also drops to B, with two hauls and two blanks in the last four matches.

Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) and Eden Hazard (£11.3m) remain above Raheem Sterling (£11.1m) among midfielders for Gameweek 12, in spite of the Man City man’s 21-point haul against Southampton. He keeps his Rotation Risk factor on account of missing two plum home fixtures to Pep Guardiola’s selection policy earlier this season. Meanwhile, Hazard loses his Injury factor having officially recovered from his back problem.

After switching him to Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.5m) for Gameweek 11, Richarlison (£6.9m) has returned to the Watchlist. We consider it a peace offering after he ruthlessly punished our decision to remove him a week ago. Fantasy Football Scout members will be able to look at the data behind his return to the Watchlist by reading this article.

James Maddison’s (£7.0m) knee injury sees him drop to eighth place while Ryan Fraser (£6.1m) and Anthony Martial (£7.5m) benefit to occupy sixth and seventh place respectively.

Fulham’s problems in front of goal have seen Andre Schürrle (£5.9m) drop off the end of the list to be replaced by West Ham’s Felipe Anderson (£6.8m). It’s mainly the fixtures that hold him there for now as we’d like to see some consistency before pushing him higher up.

A 13-point haul against Southampton is enough for Sergio Aguero‘s (£11.4m) form to go back to A. Therefore, he holds onto top spot in the forwards’ section.

12 points registered against Burnley sees Marko Arnautovic (£7.1m) improve his form to B and he is set for another week in second place with West Ham’s nice run.

The only other change in the forwards’ section sees Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.7m) fall off the bottom in disgrace. His replacement is Álvaro Morata (£8.7m) who has four goals in his last four matches and impressive underlying statistics to back that up too. He comes in just below Harry Kane (£12.4m) but one above Roberto Firmino (£9.2m)

    Best combination long term?

    A) TAA, Sterling, Mane
    B) Trippier, Salah, Anderson/Maddison

    (Have Aguero + Haz for (C) )

        although I wouldn't opt for TAA

          Not doing any moves this week. Need more information on him. Might go for Gomez instead

    2. JOELENE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      Gomez at 4.9 surely worth considering?

    Been out in the sticks for last couple days, come back to civilization and see I'll need a Maddison replacement then..

    What are others doing? I'm thinking about going dirt cheap or Anderson. Don't like Barkley and Shaqiri seems to be a one week punt.

    Have Success as a 4.5m striker, so a rotation there would be handy - Although i won't be relying on him much.

    Camarasa possibly..

    1. Bouncebackability
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Kenedy is a trap with that Newcastle attack.

      How is your team looking?

    Do I need to use the 1FT and have I got this right??

    Pat
    Alonso / Robbo / Doherty / Balbuena
    Salah / Hazard / Fraser
    Aguero / Arnie / Success

    Hamer / Richo / AWB / Maddi

    1. Sweetboi
      • 3 Years

      Play Richarlison over Doherty.

      1. Tube!!
        • 4 Years
        3 days, 6 hours ago

        Not to sure about that .....away to Chelsea.

        1. ddpour
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 days, 5 hours ago

          Richarl is far more likely to bag v Chelsea than Doherty is to keep a clean sheet away to arsenal

  4. Numb

    Any Liverpool ITKs like to guess the starting XI?

    1. Demel

      Where is Danny Ward when you need him.

      1. Berbinho's Forehead

        Leaking the Leicester team. 😀

        1. BinManJack
          • 2 Years

          agree with this team except I think Gomez will play instead of Lovren and I wouldn't be surprised to see Fabinho start over Wij

    Triple Captain Active...who's with me?

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 8 Years
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      Would feel more comfortable if Liverpool's attack were in full flow so it's a nay from me. Might just wait for Sterling vs Cardiff (H).

      1. Bouncebackability
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 days, 6 hours ago

        Triple captaining a Pep midfielder would be ballsy.

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 8 Years
          3 days, 6 hours ago

          Haha yeah, the wait until team news would be stressful.

      2. Daniel - DEXIT
        • 9 Years
        3 days, 6 hours ago

        Sterling Vs Car is a good shout

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 8 Years
          3 days, 6 hours ago

          Juuuuuhhhhuuuuu!

        2. Auboomerang
          • 1 Year

          I'm eyeing up Hazard at home to Fulham in GW14. Probably wont if Fulham change manager though.

          1. Nabs Kebabs
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 days, 6 hours ago

            considering that too...

      3. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 days, 6 hours ago

        don't mind that...but he hasn't showed up in 2 "easy" home games so far this season...wouldn't want a VC triple captain.

    2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      Waiting for DGWs

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 days, 6 hours ago

        didn't think of that!

        lol

      2. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        that's what everyone has been saying about the bench boost aswell...

  6. Weasel51
    • 2 Years
    3 days, 6 hours ago

    Have 2 FT’s and I’m willing to take a -4 to find a way to get Mané into this team without losing the big hitters...

    Any ideas?

    Hennessey
    Alonso Robertson Trippier
    Hazard Salah Bilva Fraser
    Kun Wilson Arnie

    4.0 AWB Peltier Stephens

    Thanks

  7. Ha.

    Who’s doubling up on Mane and Salah(c)? Feels slightly too much...

    1. nisag17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      Been that way since GW1 in my team. Mixed bag so far. Hoping it works well against Fulham.

      1. Ha.
        • 3 Years
        3 days, 6 hours ago

        Started the season with both, but think we’re about to get trolled...

    2. Demel
      • 7 Years
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      It is definitely not too much this week. Next week however is a different story.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 8 Years
        3 days, 6 hours ago

        This - great for this week... Their fixtures stay decent for a while & you should get a good 0.5 of TV if they both haul

    3. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      I have for this gw

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      o/

      even thought about TC but Salah (TC), Mane and Robertson might be too much on one game

      1. de quincey
        • 8 Years
        3 days, 5 hours ago

        anybody think milner might be a good choice?

    5. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      worked well against cardiff but i'm not taking another hit to make it happen

    6. KingOllie
      • 3 Years
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      I have 😀

  8. Fraz2208
    • 1 Year
    3 days, 6 hours ago

    Any changes you would suggest mendy only on the bench for this week of course as I can see Utd scoring
    Patricio
    Robertson holebas zaba rudiger
    Hazard sterling Milner
    Aguero arnie Wilson
    ( hamer mendy Westwood Fraser)

    Any help appreciated

  9. ScholesyBoy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 days, 6 hours ago

    Shaqiri - higher points per minute than Sterling, Aguero, Salah, Mane, Hazard. Now looks like his best chance of a start all season and its against Fulham. Get him in, he scores as expected, price rise over IB and then either a) take the 0.1m and the points today or b) he performs so well he nails a spot in a recently uninspiring Liverpool midfield and you have a massive bargain on your hands. Jobs a good un?

    1. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      Or he does nothing and wasted 2 transfers.

    2. Auboomerang
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      Yeah, I'm not usually a fan of short term moves but I think Shaqiri will smash it this week

    3. JOELENE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      I'm certainly considering it. Wish I knew for sure he would start this week tho

    4. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      Non-owner. Shaqiri could force his way into the LIV starting 11.

  10. curious_zombie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 days, 6 hours ago

    Fabianski
    Robertson, Laporte, Yedlin
    Salah(C), Hazard, Knockaert, Paterson
    Aguero,Vardy(VC), Arnautovic

    Patricio, Dunk, Doherty, Moving

    Gtg? Im seriously trying to convince myself to go Vardy(C)
    That'd be too risky right...?!

    Thanks!

    Two options for me, two questions for anyone kind enough to answer:

    Option A. Sterling + Mane
    Option B. Salah + Martial or Siggy

    Q.1. Which will score more this week in your opinion (captaining the Liverpool player)?
    Q.2. Which would you rather have in the longer term?

    1. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      B
      A (B if Martial's really nailed)

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 days, 6 hours ago

      Mane 2 points less than Salah and 3.2 mil cheaper. sterling points machine atm.

      Rich

  13. wasp3000
    • 4 Years
    3 days, 6 hours ago

    1FT, 0.2m ITB, No WC, OR 13.7k

    Fabianksi Patricio
    Mendy TAA Robbo Doherty AWB
    Salah Hazard Maddison* Rich Hojbjerg
    Aguero Jimenez Arnie

    Right I thought about it and I don't like the look at any 6.9m and under MD's. Seems like a 1 week punt that can go wrong and a waste of a FT.

    Plan
    GW 12 - Roll FT & play Doherty over Maddison
    GW 13 - 2FT Salah & Maddison --> Mane & Martial & 2.5m ITB
    GW 14 - TAA --> Alonso (v Ful)

    Obviously these plans can change drastically over the Int Break but would love to hear your thoughts?

    1. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 days, 5 hours ago

      Yeah like the look of those plans. Maybe think about Sterling over Mane - seems like you're trying to keep that 2.5m back to fund Alonso, but you could always just move Robbo to him instead.

      Guess it's a choice between:

      Sterling, Alonso, TAA
      Mane, Alonso, Robertson.

                ... have a good feeling about Aguero (C) this weekend though. :).

      2. FPLGraham
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 days, 5 hours ago

        Mendy, Walker, Aguero for City.

        Walker = wildcard mistake. Headache now on how to fund Sterling.

    2. HotShot Hamish

        Best free double transfer option....?

        Mitrovic & Capou to...

        A) Siggy & Success
        B) Neves & Wilson

        Inclined to go A as bit of differential with Success but odds on Wilson will score this week.

              Could be tasty eggs and a strong basket
