How the Top 10k are looking ahead of Blank Gameweek 27

The top 10,000 managers in Fantasy Premier League have joined the rest of us in moving en masse for Son Heung-min (£8.8m).

The Spurs midfielder was snapped up by just over 550,000 FPL managers in the run-up to Gameweek 26 – that’s almost twice as many transfers in as the next-most-bought player of this weekend.

A look at the most-owned players among the top 10k (see below) reveals that Son is the only change to the “template” squad from the previous Gameweek, with Leroy Sane (£9.6m) unsurprisingly making way.

Mohamed Salah (£13.6m) remains the most-owned player in the top 10,000, followed by Marcus Rashford (£7.8m) – who was benched at Craven Cottage earlier today – and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£4.6m).

The above template squad features four players who blank in Gameweek 27 – namely Lucas Digne (£5.3m), Richarlison (£6.7m), Eden Hazard (£10.9m) and Sergio Aguero (£11.4m).

The front eight players in the above graphic match those in the overall most-owned squad, as pictured below:

Marcos Alonso (£6.5m), Ederson (£5.6m), Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) and Alisson (£6.0m) are the four names that differ; Alonso and Ederson being two more players without a fixture in Gameweek 27.

Son for Sane and Raul Jimenez (£6.7m) for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.2m) are the two changes from Gameweek 25.

There unsurprisingly hasn’t been a great deal of chip activity this weekend, though we may see a very minor spike in the usage of the free hit chip in Gameweek 27 among those Fantasy managers whose squads are overloaded with Manchester City, Everton and Chelsea assets.

Just over 17% of managers inside the top 10,000 have used their free hit chip already.

Over 75% of managers in the top 10k have their triple captain chip still to play, while a similar number also have their second wildcard still to burn.

Bench boost remains the least-used chip among these high-performing Fantasy managers.

The overall picture, meanwhile, looks as follows:

Almost exactly one in five managers inside the top 10k in FPL have used two or more of their chips already this season (see below).

Just over 50% of the top 10,000 Fantasy bosses are still yet to use a single chip, however.

The overall situation shows a similar spread, though an increased 27.4% have used two or more of their chips as of Gameweek 26:

Switching our attention back to Gameweek 26, the top 10k largely backed Salah for the armband ahead of his eight-point return against Bournemouth.

The 2.27% who captained Paul Pogba (£8.7m) will be sitting pretty on 32 points once bonus is added, while a similar number captained Aubameyang and will be relying on their vice-captain for points (Pogba being a popular choice) after the Gabonese forward’s no-show at Huddersfield.

The overall Gameweek 26 captaincy picture is not quite as straightforward, as one would perhaps expect given the varying degrees of involvement further down the rankings and with those managers perhaps having less to lose by backing a differential captain.

    2 FT and 3 BGW players, who would you prioritise? On paper the Everton lads (Richo and Digne) should definitely go first but could be missing a trick sitting the 11.4 m of Aguero on the bench.

    1. Dreaming of glory
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Depends on rest of ur team. Im in a similar spot, same 2 out and then bench sterling for me

      1. waldo666
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Team linked if you feel like having a squizz. Also depends on who comes in too ofc.

    2. TheBrazilianRonaldo
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Re-frame it. Which player would you keep if you couldn’t get them back?

      1. waldo666
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Fair point, I definitely wouldn't want Richo and Digne back that's for sure!

  2. Bobby_Baggio
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Best 4.3 or 4.2 Midfield bench fodder....

    A) Dendonker
    B) Bacuna
    C) Romeu
    D) Puncheon
    E) Anyone else

    1. Pigeon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Hayden

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Talks on here he'll lose his spot to others returning

        1. waldo666
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Been reading allot of that too and does make sense, A maybe.

    2. markloe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Hayden?

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Been told he may his place under threat soon

      2. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        He's covering for Shelvey. Villa wanted to sign on loan but Newcastle wouldn't let go because of injuries

        1. markloe
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Aah yes sorry, Ki probably back to fitness now too.. I would go for Puncheon even though he's a bit riskier than Romeu/Dendocker, think he has the highest upside

  3. markloe
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Barnes -> Auba (-4) easily my dumbest move of the season

    1. waldo666
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Not sure about dumb, pretty unlucky I would say.

      1. markloe
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I did it along with Sane -> Pogba on Friday night, there was no need for me to do it until this morning

        1. markloe
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Thursday night sorry

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      it's not dumb, it looks the case now but if you asked anyone on Wed/Thursday it would be a 100% yes

      1. Brosstan
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        If you asked ahead of the deadline most would say no. And on Wed/Thurs people would say "wait until closer to the deadline"

    3. Syd.
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      He was ill no one could have predicted that especially those who made an early transfer

    4. SADIO SANÉ
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      depends when you did it really

    5. donlobatto
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Definitely more unlucky than dumb. No one would have questioned you for doing that

    6. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Weren't Barnes stats better than any other forward lately?

      1. markloe
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        yep, I've enjoyed owning him, even with his habit of getting a yellow card every time he scores.. except today of course, ha

    7. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      it wasnt a good transfer even considering what happened tbh

      1. markloe
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        thanks that means a lot

  4. mgilbert86
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Anyone considering Schmeichel for these fixtures?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      not really - 3x of the leicester back 4 offer decent attacking potential within same price bracket

  5. Brosstan
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Anyone who can remember having success with differentials lately? Im not asking about people who got in Pogba or Rashford 1 week early, but players who legitimately arent in many teams.

    Laporte is the closest I can think of. Everything seems to fail this season if you try going off template.

    1. XabiAlonso
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Had some success with rondon for a while at 3.8% ownership

      1. Brosstan
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Im considering him for the upcoming run of games. Arnie is tempting too though, especially with Fulham at home next.

    2. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Holebas / Foster?

    3. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Yes, JWP was great for 3 weeks. No real genuine talk of him here, instead other more expensive options talked about over and over.

      1. waldo666
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Nice work getting him in, I thought he was a great alternative around that time but had more pressing issues.

      2. Brosstan
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Thats a nice one.

      3. donlobatto
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I’ve got him but this week I had him first on bench so his 1pt is coming in for Rashford ☹️

    4. waldo666
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I've had Eriksen for a while now but his returns have been pretty ordinary really, jagged a 13 pointer out of him but that is a distant memory now.

    5. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Holebas was great, until now

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        potentially has one/maybe two really good DGWs I think - he should keep it up I think

    6. AllanM
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Siggy earlier in the season for me. Barnes doing well. Got Kev who looks ready to shine and excels against better teams.

    7. GianniBanani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Etheridge 50 points vs Fabianski 27 last 8 gws

    8. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      martial didnt do badly today, laporte dgw, higuain debut. some brave people enjoying success with barnes and bamba. fixture turns for leicester, newcastle, brighton, cardiff etc starting. people shifting from premium mids to arsenal forwards despite probable bgw. lots of interesting things about to happen imo.

      1. Brosstan
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Martial is one of my failed differentials... Had him from the start of Ole's run along with Pogba and he did f all, until now of course, after I got rid when he was injured last week.

    9. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I had Snodgrass for two weeks and he got 19 pts.

    10. HammersFan
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Surprised nobody else went for Lindelof (before tonight)

      Since GW21: 7,6,2,10,7
      Only 5% owned!

    11. Burger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I bought Son in November, and apart from this week he's pretty much been a differential all the way though.

    12. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      At what percentage do you think a differential is? Or do you think we should go on the top 100k or some reasoning? Laporte is owned by about one in ten of us

      1. McEwan
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        % is difficult to gauge as differentials sometimes. I got mane 4gws ago at around 19% but a large portion of that would be dead teams. So a differencial at the business end

  6. Codetto
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Etheridge or Fabianski to be transferred in?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      prefer pat but etheridge between the 2 of them

    Bottomed...
    Covering BGW, but looking forward with Chelsea, too (ditch both, just one?)

    Each is a -4:
    1) Haz, Kamara > Moutinho, Auba
    2) Siggy, Kam > Fanderson, Rondon
    3) Luiz, Kam > Kola, Rondon
    4) Other?

    Current team: Fab, Button // Luiz, Robbo, Doh, AWB, Bednarek
    Salah, Pogba, Hazard, Son, Siggy // Rash, Jim, Kamara

    1. Better Call Salah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      1 more upside, but 2 get rid of the deadwood

  9. K.F.C
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Kun + Richarilson > Aub + Pogba for s hit?

    1. K.F.C

      a* lol

      1. Fred54

    2. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Kind of depends on rest of team/coverage, but I like it.

    3. EMBOLOFAN

      pogba not essential this week (vs liverpool) if you can field a team

    4. K.F.C

    Sell sterling or kun or neither?

    1. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      I’m really tempted to bench both and take a bad week.

      I mean they are at home to West Ham after that !

      1. Jacky boy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        If they both start!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Seems a waste of transfers when they are so precious ahead of BGW

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I am likely sell sterling, too much rotation going on for me

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      depends on your ability to field a decent team next week

  12. Weasel51
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Only have 9 for next week.

    Holebas+ Laporte >> Kola + Maguire wort a -4?

    Or just Holebas/Laporte > Kola?

          would probably do laporte to pereira/taa and leave it at that. sterling to mane is another option

  13. TaiwanHC

    Early transfer thoughts:

    Ings + Sterling + Richarlison + Digne —> Auba + Jota + Maddison + Pereira (-8)

    Your thoughts please?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      post your team

      highly unlikely taking a -8 to get in auba and a bunch of mid price players is a good idea

    2. Better Call Salah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Decent -8

  14. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Just realised Ings is back next gameweek (forgot about cup week), so can keep him.

    Who's everyone Triple Captaining this season? Thinking Mr reliable, Salah.

    1. GianniBanani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Really missed the train with Aguero tc. I really want to tc player captained by max 30% of top10k managers

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I think Aguero score will be beaten. Was only 3 goals over 2 games, easily beatable I think

        1. Fitzy.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          If you could take it though, I bet you would.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            I'd take even Captaining him lol - I capped Sterling

        2. Flapjack ✅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Well Laporte beat it.

          It’s having the right player do it. I would not twist on my Kun TC right now 😉

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 2 Years

            Not jealous at all.... Lol

    Why don't people wait 'til maybe Auba drops and Aguero rises today?

    What's the rush

    1. GianniBanani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Which people? I'm afraid of bringing Auba right now

    2. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Nobody should be bringing anyone in until the deadline.

    3. Numb
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Surely no one will be doing transfers yet

      Maybe 'priced in' with the changes and don't want 0.1/0.2 leftover ITB (I have this weird OCD to spend the full 100m lol)

    What is the best strategy for all chips keepers?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      depends on your team but check crellins twitter

      1. GianniBanani
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Thanks, my team is:
        Etheridge, Hamer
        Robertson, Doherty, AWB, Luiz, Bednarek
        Hazard, Salah, Son, Pogba, Stephens
        Firmino, Rashford, Jimenez

        Plus 3,4 ITB

    2. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      32 Free hit
      34 WC
      35 BB
      36 TC Salah vs Hud

      Or TC Higuan in a DGW

        Sounds good

      2. GianniBanani
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Cheers, so it means im looking for 27-31 options right now?

        1. Peter Ouch
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 13 days ago

          I am now preparing my team for 31 and 33 that look identical.
          So slowly build it up and then all the rest are set up if you use your chips that way

    3. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      You kinda have to get as many player possible playing in 31.

      https://d1bfnpscahnssj.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/GW31-c-1.png is a rough guide to the teams to get. the lads in green are the ones who will play, but at the same time, they all suck

      1. GianniBanani
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 13 days ago

        So triple lpool is a nice start

  17. Kub3
    1 month, 13 days ago

    If you want Mané now is the time to get him. Scored in 4 straight games and is a player who goes on hot streaks. Out of all of Liverpool’s attack he’s the one most likely to score at Old Trafford IMO

  18. davies
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Which option?

    A) Salah + King
    B) Mane + Lacazette

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      a

    2. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      A. Salah's too highly owned to avoid through a run of no blanks

  19. Flapjack ✅
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Here’s my team for next week! Thoughts ? 😉

    Hamer( May not play)
    Doherty, AWB, TAA, Lascelles
    Pogba, Salah, Son (c), Puncheon
    Rashford, Jiminez

    One playing sub: Valery

    Ederson, Sterling, Kun benched

    Thinking 1 FT could be Hamer to Boruc

    0.2 ITB

    1. Better Call Salah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Get Boruc or Guita imo

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      doubt hamer plays, would prob do allison for ederson, you'll want 3x liverpool before bgw anyway

      1. Flapjack ✅
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I’ll prob get a third pool but not sure if GK is where I’d wanna go with it. We are kind of spoilt with cheap keepers right now

        Saying that it’s been an option running through my mind

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 13 days ago

          agree but gets the job done in 1 transfer rather than 2

          1. Flapjack ✅
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Yeah I get what you mean

            Another concern would be double pool defence v Pog and Rash.

            God it’s gonna be a horrendous week.

            1. EMBOLOFAN
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 13 days ago

              agree and im in a similar position as i own 3x united attack and 2x liverpool defence but in the medium term i think it's going to play out fine

        2. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 13 days ago

          in any case, prefer boruc to guitar just because of likelyhood that palace blank gw31 (city definitely will)

          1. Flapjack ✅
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Yeah that’s the logic behind it. I’d get a keeper for 27 and 31 !

            1. Flapjack ✅
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              Unless he gets dropped ?

              1. EMBOLOFAN
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 13 days ago

                there's a risk he does but it's prob worth it given that 27/31 are good fixtures for bournemouth

    3. g40steve

      Do it, I swapped button.

      1. Flapjack ✅
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I’ll be waiting until the deadline but I think it’s the move

        Are you bench boosting did I see ?

        1. g40steve
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

          That’s the plan once I have 15 playing starters.
          Boruc rising tonight so already done the swap for button.

  20. Smurf

    Bednarek and Digne in for Auba and Rashford hasn’t helped my rank this week 🙁

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      bad luck but you wont be the only one thats for sure

    2. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Everyone got bummed. TAA cameo for many too.

  21. Visionaries
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Had you this team, would you free hit?
    Heavy investment in City, United and Pool with no Arsenal.

    Lloris
    Shaw, Doherty, Laporte, Robbo, (AWB)
    Salah, Pogba, Son, Jota
    Rash, Aguero, (Long)

    1. Royal5
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      No way. United Pool could be high scoring. Just do Aguero > Auba/Kane

    2. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      DGW is more important to FH imo

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      nah just do laporte to pereira and get on with it. everyone is going to struggle.

  22. ...al - Leave your comments…
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Considering doing Sane > Mane but it means I've to drop TAA, so I'm thinking Doherty in?

    Leaves me with

    Fab/Hamer

    Robertson Kola Digne Doherty Wan-B
    Salah Mane Son Pogba Odoi
    Aguero Rashford Jiminez

    Not mad on losing Trent after keeping but Sane has to go. Not much mids exciting me or doing the biz apart from on form Mane. + plays in 31

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      if you already own taa dont waste 2 transfers switching to mane

    2. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Why dont you drop Robbo and get TAA the you can do Sane to Mane

    3. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Already have Taa I need to get rid of Sane and Mane was the choice, but rather drop TAA than Robertson, as I've had Robertson since gw1

  23. Ask Yourself

    Who are we BGW31/33 preppers looking to replace rich this week? Fraser and Maddison aren’t convincing at all

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      what's unconvincing about maddison? has been playing well, has amazing fixtures coming up and has been unlucky not to register more attacking returns in recent weeks. ranks very highly for total shots + chances created.

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        He has been shite ever since he missed that pen. Awful on the eye test and is getting dropped

    2. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      May still get Maddison in for Hazard. Stats are ok although haven't watched a Leicester game for ages

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 13 days ago

        i have - he looks good!

        1. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          I don’t agree, looks terrible when I see him

    3. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I got Son this week as there’s so few options. I’m not even a fan of Son.

      The thing is the cheap options appear to have dried up and Rich is awful, so I guess you just get one of those and pray.

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Yeah I don’t rate spurs slightly he is a very lucky player only got him to ruin his luck. The defenders look better for the blanks anyway

    4. Scratch
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Fraser. Bourn way better at home and he has 3 decent home fixtures for 27, 31 and 33

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Yeah they are really missing wilson

    5. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Fraser if I had to choose from that, and Vardy could make way for the Leicester pick

  24. Super Silva Haze
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    For those with all 3 chips and WC to use. When are you most likely to use the WC ?

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      34

    2. Numb
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Pretty much everyone who still has it will use in GW34

    3. Super Silva Haze
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Why 34 ?

      1. Duffy Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I think it's best used before a dgw bb.
        Since dgw32 is surrounded by blanks, wc in 34 just before dgw35 seems to be the way to go.

      2. Big Ping
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        To set up bb in gw35

  25. markloe
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Are we expecting Boruc to keep his place? Really nice BGW fixtures even if they are a bit of a leaky team

    1. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Apparently Howe and Begovic had a bust up. But he was still on the bench, so is a small concern I guess

      1. markloe
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Thanks, thought he played well today despite the result

  26. Danstoke82
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Evening all, best replacement for Richarlison here? Mane out of question as already have 3 Liverpool unless I lose Alisson.

    Alisson
    Robertson Doherty Jonny
    Salah Pogba Son Richarlison
    Aguero Rashford Jimenez

    Subs; Speroni Bednarek Wan Bissaka Puncheon

    1FT £3.4ITB

  27. VicGunner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Pogba reminds me of Yaya all those seasons ago. I kept avoiding him, he kept punishing me. Absolute machine.

  28. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Fabianski
    Robertson / TAA / Doherty / AWB
    Salah / Son / Pogba / Camarasa
    Rashford / Jimenez

    Ederson* // Sterling* / Digne* / Ings*

    Which option looks best for next GW?

    A) Digne > Pereira
    B) Sterling > Jota
    C) Sterling/Ings > Jota/Aubameyang (-4)
    D) Ederson > Boruc
    E) Save FT

    I do not know what to do with the Ings spot. D would be for price changes/BGW preparation.

    1. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      e/a

  29. antis0cial
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Already have Pereira. Tempted to double up on Leicester defence with good run ahead either Digne to Maguire or Chilwell. That too much invested in Leicester backline?

    I have 11 playing for 27 benching Sterling so could roll ft.

    1. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Hold you horses, the only team worth doubling up on WAS Liverpool.

    2. SMEE_HEEE
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      it's ok for the 31/33 blanks, but I wouldn't do it for now. I know fixtures are "good" but for mid table teams

      I prefer TAA, Doherty. Assume you already have Robbo.

      Maybe do it for gw30 (or 31) to carry you through 31 and 33

      32 you can free hit one (or both of them) out, then wc34 get rid of one permanently

      1. antis0cial
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Thanks, great info! Currently on Robbo, Doherty, Pereira, AWB, Digne. Chips I had FH31, TC32, WC34, BB35

        1. antis0cial
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Can’t go taa as have 3 pool. Mane, Salah

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      think doubling up on leics is fine

  30. Burger
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Anyone else benching Kun for GW27 blank? A mouthwatering home tie against Hammers in GW28 coming up.

    1. Danstoke82
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Yeh think I am. Red hot at the moment. Would rather bench him for 1 GW

    2. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Probably but they do have EFL final vs Chelsea 3 days earlier, and Bournemouth PL 3 days later.
      Will he play?

    3. waldo666
      • 8 Years

      I very well might.

      Possible depending on Auba atm

      I've Sane to wort out so that's got my attention
