The best West Ham FPL options for their favourable fixtures

West Ham United’s nine goals in their last three matches have set them up as the latest Fantasy Premier League flavour of the month.

However, the recent injury to Marko Arnautovic (£7.0m) has changed the thought process for capitalising on the Hammers’ form and fixtures.

Felipe Anderson (£7.3m) seems to have been the go-to replacement but his midfield position means that he is not a direct alternative to Arnautovic.

So we’ve analysed the options at West Ham to see which offers the best potential in the coming weeks and which are the most affordable.

    Mitro and Luiz/Schindler
    Or
    Kamara and Alonso?

      I prefer Mitrovic and Luiz, you don't want to be in a position where you have to start Kamara every week.

      1. Jealous Viper
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Cheers. Do you know why mitro was subbed at half time against United?

        1. Amey
          3 months, 13 days ago

          To avoid unnecessary booking IMO

          I think it was tactical, and they improved massively in the second half but I'd be surprised if he's dropped this weekend, they need him firing if they want to stay up.

    2. Ëð
      • 3 Years

      A

  2. Pep Pig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is Martial to B Silva or F Anderson worth a -4 given United's good fixtures after this week?

    1. Jealous Viper
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Nah, especially not for a hit. United have to score even as desperately poor as they are and martial also has a good chance to be among the goals

    2. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I wouldn't make that move for a hit.

      1. Pep Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Thanks chaps. I was hoping for this responses. Currently No Man City players (after moving D Silva out for Hazard).
        Only only Balbuena for West Ham. But I'm happy to wait for now.

  3. Jealous Viper
    3 months, 13 days ago

    If Laca plays full 90 come Thursday, that probably ends his stay in my team

    1. Amey
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Stay calm.
      Getting him out would probably need hit which is why I will keep him for 1 week imo.

    2. DV8R
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Yeah I'll swap him out if that happens

    Was Shaq rested last night?

    Ready to start at the weekend...

    1. YekiM
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Wasn't rested per se, just chose strongest 11.

      Expect Klopp will go three midfielders against United

    2. Jᴀʀᴠish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Rested in their biggest match of the season?

    3. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'm not a Liverpool fan but I think it depends on the system they're playing, and they tend to go 4-3-3 against tougher teams (PSG, Napoli) which means no room for Shaqiri. Going on that, I'd be surprised if he starts against United but could be wrong.

      1. ClassiX
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 13 days ago

        This is exactly right. Liverpool play 433 vs teams Klopp thinks will be tough. You can tell what Klopp thinks of a team by the formation he puts out - if he plays the 4321 formation he basically thinks the team is shite. 🙂

    4. Bubbles1985

      3 months, 13 days ago

      I am living in hope!

      He is my only Liverpool coverage and I already have Anderson and Rich.

      No spare money!

    5. Rodney
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Not part of their best XI I would assume. He's never going to be nailed in that Liverpool side, although ironically may be a decent go-to in the festive period given he will be used to help Salah and Mane rest.

    Felipe or Bilva?

    1. Jealous Viper
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Felipe

    2. Amey
      3 months, 13 days ago

      FA

    3. space

      Bilva

  6. Wheato182

    Cavaleiro>Snod for a hit?

    Already have Anderson

    1. Amey
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Nope

  7. rjcv177
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Who should be my priority to clear?
    Everton players with bad fixtures and 3injuries 🙁

    Fab
    Tripp*, taa*, bellerin, keane, awb
    Sane, son, siggy, f.anderson, billing
    Kane, auba, wilson*

    1. Jᴀʀᴠish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Wait for the pressers mate - they could be fine.

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Ride it out with Everton, they have good fixtures after the next two.

  8. Snevitz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Repost due to being last on the page and no replies which was sad....

    Fabianski, Hamer
    Alonso, Robertson, TAA, Kolasinac, Doherty
    Salah, Martial, Richarlison, Anderson, Fraser
    Auba, Wilson, Jimenez

    I have no players from City but I'm not sure if that matters.
    Is it worth Martial & Jimenez to Sane and Kamara?
    Martial averages 5.8 ppg and Sane has 5.9 ppg, combined with the downgrade of striker it doesn't seem like a good move.

    1. Ëð
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I don't think it's worth it. How many FT do you have?

    2. Amey
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'd personally be worried about not having city players.

    3. Superbadhine
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Not worth it, to make yourself feel better look at United's upcoming fixtures. Your team is well set

  9. Nightf0x
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    WC active, which?

    A- doherty - kola - bednarek - richar - fanderson - luiz
    B- doherty/kola - bednarek - benet/awb - sane - snod - luiz
    C- doherty/vinagre - kola - awb - sane - snod - schindler

    1. Ëð
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I wouldn't like to pick one of those, I'd toss a coin.

    2. balint84
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      maybe B without awb

    3. Superbadhine
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      B with Doherty and AWB

  10. LOLarov
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Glenn Murray --> Chic with 1FT decent?

    1. Ëð
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Nothing more pressing?

    2. Superbadhine
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Not bad

  11. Ëð
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Good to hold the 1FT? Or should I consider getting Siggy out? £1.4m ITB. Looking long term I would probably like to do Wilson -> Auba eventually.

    Fabianski, Hennessey
    Robertson, TAA, Alonso, Doherty, AWB
    Sterling, Sane, Sigurdsson, Fraser, Camarasa
    Kane, Wilson, Jimenez

    1. Superbadhine
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      If you're looking long term keep Siggy right where he is

  13. Hazardous1983

    Son will be rested right

    1. whodatgoal
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Don't think so - he came off at 70 same as the last 2 league games. I think Poch likes his aggressive pressing at the start of a game.

  14. Hazardous1983
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Patricio or fab in goal? Own doherty already

    1. Superbadhine
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Fab, check Pat's history. No longer the season keeper we thought

  15. Hazardous1983
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    One ft get in

    Hazard for sane?
    Mitro for wilson?
    Any one for son

  16. Kaatupoochi
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Considering the fixtures of spurs is it worth to bring in Hugo Lloris?

    1. Jᴀʀᴠish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Cheapest way into their defence, so not a bad shout.

  17. Fantasy Challenged

    Foster (Hennessey)
    Alonso Robertson Doherty (Schin, Bennett)
    Salah* Hazard Anderson Fraser (Camarasa
    Mitrovic Wilson* Aubameyang

    What do you guys think? 1.6 ITB, 1 FT 🙂

    A) Salah --> Sterling
    B) Salah and Wilson --> Kane and Son (-4)
    D) Hold

    Got 1FT and 0.8 ITB
    A ) Hold
    B) Hojbjerg -> Torreira
    C) Dunk -> Someone (Digne)
    D) Sane -> Son
    E) Take a hit and get Salah back!

    Thinking A is the best option...
