Attacking double-ups focus of latest Watchlist Update

Effective attacking double-ups are the theme of our most recent Watchlist update.

With Mohamed Salah (£13.6m) largely dominating the captaincy debate and his ownership increasing each week, Fantasy Premier League managers need other tactics to keep getting green arrows.

As discussed on this week’s Scoutcast, attacking double-ups could be the way to go, and that was confirmed in part when we recently updated our Watchlist.

What we found was that the colleagues of some of the game’s most effective assets are also looking ready for investment.

Starting with Salah’s team-mates, we pushed Sadio Mané (£9.5m) and Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) up in their respective positions. In the last four Gameweeks, both players have had more efforts on goal than the Egyptian. With Liverpool’s fixtures remaining favourable and involvement in all the upcoming Blank Gameweeks, either one from the pair could make excellent partners in our Fantasy teams for Salah.

In spite of their upcoming Blank in Gameweek 27, both Raheem Sterling (£11.3m) and Leroy Sané (£9.7m) have strong credentials. Between Gameweeks 24 and 26, the fixtures still suggest attacking involvements for Manchester City, with Newcastle (away), Arsenal (home) and Chelsea (home) their next three matches. Obviously, the defending champions will have a corresponding Double Gameweek at some point, for which owning both Sterling and Sané could prove a devastating combination. That said, we have pulled the German down a little for now, with the impact of Benjamin Mendy‘s (£6.1m) return currently difficult to assess.

On the other side of Manchester is another strong looking double-up with both Paul Pogba (£8.7m) and Marcus Rashford (£7.7m) at the top ends of their respective positions. The former is the second-best midfield option after registering 10 attacking returns in his last six Premier League outings. However, with his ownership now just under 40%, owning him may not be enough to cover yourself against large Manchester United wins. The recent injury to Harry Kane (£12.5m) has accelerated Rashford’s rise to prominence, breaking the record for most-transferred in ahead of any Gameweek last time around. He has seven attacking returns since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over, making him just as viable as Pogba. The two of them have very high ownership among the top 10,000 FPL managers as well so they both look must-haves for a run of games featuring Burnley (home), Leicester (away), Fulham (away), Crystal Palace (away) and Southampton (home).

The recent injury to Dele Alli (£8.9m), which will keep him out until March sees Christian Eriksen (£9.4m) slot in as the obvious replacement for him on the Watchlist. Even though Spurs are now without a selection of key options, it does increase the likelihood that Eriksen will be involved in their attacking returns. With Son Heung-min (£8.6m) and South Korea now out of the Asian Cup, he may reappear soon, once we know more about a specific return date.

The other big change in midfield is that Wolves man Diogo Jota (£5.9m) has come into the frame, replacing Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.3m). His hat-trick against Leicester has drawn the attention of the Fantasy community to him and his fixtures make him very appealing. Wolves face West Ham (home), Everton (away), Newcastle (home), Bournemouth (away), Huddersfield (away) and Cardiff (home) in the next six Gameweeks.

Further up the pitch, Gonzalo Higuain (£9.5m) makes a tentative debut appearance among the forwards, replacing the elusive Marko Arnautovic (£6.9m). While the Argentinian comes to England on the back of a bad first half of 2018/19, he does present a potentially appealing cheaper alternative to Eden Hazard (£11.0m), who has slipped down to third in the midfield bracket after struggling in the false-nine position.

In defence, Matt Doherty (£5.2m) holds onto second place, despite his poor form of late. The main reason for his high positioning is the potential the next six Gameweeks offer for Wolves. As we’ve already mentioned, their fixtures look incredible, and with little else to excite us in defence, the man who has shown what he can do earlier this season is tipped to rediscover his spark.

Sead Kolasinac (£4.9m) is the biggest riser in this position, with no defender managing more touches in the penalty box since Gameweek 20 than the Arsenal man. The Gunners are not especially renowned for clean sheets, but shutouts look achievable against Cardiff and Huddersfield in Gameweeks 24 and 26, while Kolasinac’s price makes him conveniently benchable when Arsenal travel to face Manchester City in Gameweek 25.

Everybody’s favourite budget man Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£4.5m) returns to the Watchlist this week as Crystal Palace’s schedule turns very blue on the season ticker. Only two teams rank higher than the Eagles for defensive potential on it over the next six Gameweeks. Wan-Bissaka takes the place of Sol Bamba (£4.6m).

His Palace colleague Vicente Guaita (£4.2m) goes in the opposite direction though after picking up an injury last time out. Furthermore, Roy Hodgson bolstered his options in the goalkeeping department by confirming the signing of Lucas Perri on Thursday. Conveniently replacing Guaita as the budget option in our goalkeeper section is Brighton’s David Button (£4.0m), still filling in for Mat Ryan (£4.4m) during his Asian Cup exploits.

Meanwhile, Marcos Alonso (£6.6m) continues his freefall down the defensive charts, with his place on the Watchlist very much at jeopardy.

      Wishfull thinking these day anyone with a little bit of intrest in FPL is being spoon feed by varoius sources(Twitter, youtube etc.) - only people caught off guard will be those who dont really give a monkeys anyway.

    I am .4 m short of getting Son for Anderson. To fund I could go Hazard to Sané ( but good 2 fixtures and possibly a double coming up) or Jimenez to Ings or downgrade Digne or Kola but their fixtures OK. Where would you find .4 m from this side?

    What free transfer do you prefer from these lot?

    A) Anderson > Son/Eriksen

    C) Arnie > Auba
    D) Arnie > Firmino

    1. el polako

      All depends on what is going to happen with Arnie, you may simply be forced to go C or D

    2. Bruno Bruno!!

      Arnie is staying he put a post saying he has decided to stay

      1. Fantasy Gold

        Exactly. Still tempted to get rid of him regardless

      Think A or D are the better options. D for safety or returns, A for potential differential explosion of points.

    Just watched the Arsenal v United game. With Lukaku and Sanchez both putting in good shifts, it's only really Pogba who looks a truly nailed FPL attacking asset. If I didn't own Rashford already, I certainly wouldn't be buying him after that. It looks like there will be plenty of attacking rotation going forward under Ole!

    1. Fantasy Gold
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Rashford is first choice.

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        he was but that could easily change soon imo

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Nope rash is nailed too

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        How can you say that after the way Lukaku and Sanchez, to a certain extent, played!

        1. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Because he is on fire and lukaku is being used in Cup games - when CL comes around then there is more likely a chance that lukaku starts prem games

          1. jia you jia you
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 8 months ago

            I kind of hope that's the case but wouldn't be as confident, think that he could play from the bench in some of the upcoming league games.

    3. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Considering form, dropping Rashford for Lukaku would be criminal. Woeful decision.

    4. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      I can't imagine OGS dropping Rashford with his current form.

    5. LarryDuff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Rash is a better fit for the team

    6. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Solskajer put a lot of work into building Rasfords confidence and it works, do you really think he will now bench him ?

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Get your point but Lukaku needs his confidence too! He's not as nailed on as he looked before the Arsenal game, that's for sure!

    7. F_Ivanovic
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Rashford is nailed too. If Lukaku plays it will be alongisde Rashford

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Its def an option that Rashford plays through the centre with Lukaku playing to the right in some games, think that might be quiet effective actually with them interchanging positions. Anyway things are looking so positive atm, its wonderful 🙂

        1. Nailed Jesus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Only Lingard or sanchez can play at the tip of the diamond in OGS’s system imo. Rash & Lukaku can play together as a front two (running in behind).

          1. jia you jia you
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 8 months ago

            I guess Mata or even Pogba could also play there. But things are def looking up for attacking footy under Ole regardless of who plays!

            1. Nailed Jesus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 year, 8 months ago

              Mata’s workrate probably isn’t suitable for that role. Put Pogba there and you’d lose his contibutions as a CM. I think Martial might be the one that has to drop out.

              1. jia you jia you
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 year, 8 months ago

                True Pogba would be a little wasted there and Mata is down the pecking order! Martial is an excellent player who needs confidence too so he'll get some starts too I feel. Tough.

    D) Downgrades to Ings and upgrade Camarasa to Sane/Son

    1. Eat my goal!

      A or D

    2. F_Ivanovic

      How do you still have Kane? D but with Jimenez. And Son.

    3. The Knights Template

    4. Peter Ouch

      A or D, but doubles etc could derail all plans. As for which of A or D, it probably depends on how your team is shaping up. I went Auba, but I have plans for Son down the line.

              Better play it safer then, Auba or Firmino. Higuain is one to monitor closely.

        Yeah but everyone has Auba and next week he'll be probably blank so I think I will go with kun and then switch to Auba or pipita depends how he is doing

    Sane to Son feels like such an easy transfer for me if considering the next 4 fixtures

    1. jia you jia you

      Screams of lost points to me!

        selling Sane before those two fixtures looks criminal to me 😉

      Sane to Son - absolutely crazy move IMO.... therefore go for it 🙂

      It’s not just the tournament, Poch also overplayed him before the tournament, had no consideration for Korea or Son. He might be regretting that now.

  19. Giggs Boson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 8 months ago

    Statistically, Leicester have a strong defence. But against Wolves, Maguire came off injured, and that really hurt them. It seems likely to just be a blip imo.

    I see Salah as a good captain option (any home game against the bottom 14 is a good game for Salah), but there is an opportunity to punt on someone else if you want to make ground.

    Higuain is making his debut against a weak Bournemouth defence and could very well fuel a major bandwagon with a brace. Another decent punt is Hazard, who will be restored to his favoured LW position where he shone against Spurs.

    Are there any good alternative captain options you like the look of? Anyone picking up Higuain?

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No way, never buy a jan signing particularly from another league without evaluation first

        Dullard 😛

        Mark showed by hopping on Arnautovic early how lucrative it can be.

        I'm not ruling out any options. I want to see every move on the board before acting.

        1. Numb
          • 5 Years

    3. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Haven't looked further than Salah, just too risky. Hazard, Aubameyang or Rashford could be good.

    4. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Although it seems a little risky for sure, the Hazard + Higuain double up if the DGW goes ahead has to be a little tempting!

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Pogba(C) for me next GW although Hazard is tempting me!

      2. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        If there's a DGW25, I will definitely have those two!

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        I haven't comfortable captaining an Arsenal player since Van Persie was there. One of the most flaky, unpredictable teams in the Prem.

          I had Laca(c) for his 1 pointer, cant get worse 😛

          Potential of mega haul is there, hopefully this week is the right one to hit the target

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          They couldn't even score against West Ham...

    6. Rostah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      They conceded 2 against Southampton & 1 against Cardiff just before the Wolves match also. Team seems very shaken atm imo

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Good point, I wonder what's going on there.

        Although Saints' counter-pressing is looking good to be fair. Ings and Redmond are still on my watchlist.

    What about City and Everton? What's the deal with them?

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      That could be the game Ole gets offered a contract.

      Theat horrid performance against Liverpool was the reason Mourinho was sacked when he was. If Ole can beat Klopp, there is no doubt that he should be the man going forwards.

        One hell of an audition thus far anyway, it's actually unbelievable what's happened at the club since he stepped in!

  24. Aubazette

    1 year, 8 months ago

    My team: Button Stekelenburg
    AWB Doherty TAA Kolasinac Digne
    Salah Alli Sane Richarlison Pogba
    Rashford Aubameyang Kamara

    what to do? Ryan is knocked out from Asian Cup, but I find his appearance in the match against Fulham unlikely. What to do first? Replace Stekelenburg with Ryan, or Alli with someone? (I thought about Jota, the best and little owned Wolves attack cover).

    What do you think guys? Thanks for advices!

    Make a claim for Higauin?

    My strikers are Aguero,Firmino and Mitrovic.
    So it would be Mitrovic who goes.
