Son, Eriksen and Wilson benched as rotation continues

Rotation continues to affect Fantasy Premier League managers as Gameweek 17 continues with the Saturday 3pm matches.

Son Heung-min (£8.5m) and Christian Eriksen (£9.3m) were named among the substitutes for Spurs ahead of their match against Burnley, while Harry Kane (£12.6m) and Dele Alli (£8.9m) got starts.

Kieran Trippier (£6.1m) comes back into the side having missed Gameweek 16 through injury, while Ben Davies (£5.6m) was deployed at centre-back with Danny Rose (£5.8m) on the left.

Youngster Oliver Skipp (£4.5m) is set for his full Premier League debut in midfield.

With Bournemouth away at Wolves today, Callum Wilson (£6.9m) returned to the matchday squad after injury but was deemed fit enough only for the bench. Simon Francis (£4.4m) misses out meaning a second start of the season for Tyrone Mings (£4.3m) in the back-three.

Wayne Hennessey (£4.5m) misses out for Crystal Palace, meaning Vicente Guaita (£4.2m) comes in to replace him as Leicester come to Selhurst Park.

Jordan Ayew (£5.7m) lines up as a centre-forward with Wilfried Zaha (£6.7m) serving his one-match ban with Martin Kelly (£3.9m) filling in for the suspended James Tomkins (£4.3m).

Isaac Success (£4.6m) drops out of the Watford side hosting Cardiff with Gerard Deulofeu (£5.4m) coming back in to play up front.

    Sterling never blanks at home.

      Preach brother

    2. Misteak

      He blanked against Man United at home

    Play which 1 out of 2

    1) Doherty vs liv
    or
    2) Jiminez vs liv

    Currently on Jiminez as RMT suggests but cant see Liv defence being broken so easily this season!

    1. tisza

      don't forget Lovren 🙂

    2. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Mhm, Jiménez I think.

    3. french holiday
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Would bench both. Cant see a clean sheeth for Wolves so will play Jiminez instead.

    4. ZeBestee
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Difficult. Jimmy maybe.

    5. LǝgleSs e|even

      Doubt Wolves will keep a CS. Rather go with potential goal / assist with a fwd instead of hoping for a CS. Well, doherty could be involved in a goal for Wolves too..hmm.

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Jimmy defs..

    6. F_Ivanovic
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Doherty. 2 chances of returns.

      1. RonChi
          7 months, 2 days ago

          This

    7. FDMS All Starz
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      If sons position is nailed I think I’ll chose him over Kane every day of the week

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        7 months, 3 days ago

        Well today answered that for you.

        1. FDMS All Starz
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          If you look at the last few GWs son has had more shots than Kane at almost 4mil less

      2. ZeBestee
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Him and Eriksen changed the game. Definitely will play an important role til he goes to Asian cup.

      3. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 3 days ago

        I like Son, looked dangerous when had the ball. Bad thing is to live with his one point today.

        1. Big_Andy_GAWA
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          He isn't nailed. Lamela back fit, too. Plays no more than 72/74 mins. Is off in Jan. Simply not worth it at this time...

    8. mrodgers91
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Pretty happy with 34 from 5. Still have auba (c) hazard mane kolasnic and flappy to play

    9. HD7
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      It seems its better to captain a player who is away with his team currently...
      Wont be surprised if Auba gets 2 or 3 tomorrow 😀

    10. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      So as Kane captainer with Aubameyang do I want him to do well as ML leader when no 2 and 3 have captained Auba- probably 1 goal would be Ok!

    11. Misteak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Kane >

      A. Mitro

      B. Kamara (and do Masuaku > Fanderson, play 3-5-2)

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 3 days ago

        I am thinking of Rashford for few weeks

        1. Misteak
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          Noooooooooooo

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            7 months, 3 days ago

            Why not?

    12. KneejerkJoe
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      A) Hazard + Kamara + 1.6
      B) Kane + Gunnarsson

      1. Misteak
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        A

    13. mgilbert86
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Time for only one bournmouth player now lads?

      1. ZeBestee
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        1 or 2 games doesn't give you a good picture. Wilson only should be enough with the fix.

    14. Fergus1107
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Seriously thinking that three mid price strikers is the future.

      Jiminez and Chicarito are doing great for their value. Add in Mitro and really beef up the midfield with the spare 4 million or so

      1. mgilbert86
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        I think 1 premium + 2 cheaper is the way forward

        1. Fergus1107
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 2 days ago

          That's my standard. No premium seems to be worth it this year

      2. Adriano
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        I have gone 352 with two cheapies up front. Kamara's emerging presence really helps as well.

    15. Deulofale
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Expected a bigger rank jump, but only just creeping into the top 100k. Hoping for big things from the Arsenal forwards tomorrow to get my revival back on track.

      Managers having Wolves double or triple up will be worried next GW.

      1. Misteak
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        I have a Wolves double up and I'm worried next week

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Benching both Jiménez and Doherty; feeling awkward

      3. Little Red Lacazette
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        I have Wolves double but plan to keep Jimi and Doherty.

    17. Jekori
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Cup comes down to Salah+Bellerin vs Auba+5 points. Gonna be a close one, which one would you pick?

    18. Ahmed Adam
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Laporte to Tripier?

      1. Misteak
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        • 2 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Honestly, R-Don is prob one of the best Captains so far this gw!

      My eyes are set on Salah for next week.
      I was thinking of shipping Sterling, until he came on and scored.
      I'm now leaning towards shipping Kane and Fraser for Salah & Rondon.

      Ryan
      D.Luiz Robertson TAA
      Son F.Anderson Sterling Sane Salah
      Rondon Wilson

      Patricio, Bennett, Jiminez, Dunk

          • 3 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          I'm not.
          I initially got annoyed at him being dropped.
          I think Salah will haul, next GW, so I'm bringing him in.

    26. ChelseaGuy
      • 2 Years
