FPL Question Time – Consult our panel ahead of Blank Gameweek 27

Fantasy Premier League managers are faced with a different kind of dilemma this week as they look to negotiate the upcoming Blank Gameweek 27.

Manchester City, Everton, Chelsea and Brighton will all be out of action over the weekend of February 23, and we’ll have to plan our moves accordingly.

Here to help you with any issues you might have are three more Fantasy managers from our rotating panel.

Submit your questions below…

Who’s on the panel this week?

Simon March – Former FPL champion who won the title in 2014/15. Has regularly contributed to these pages ever since.

Ben Crabtree – Another FPL title winner, who secured the crown in the 2016/17 campaign.

David Munday – editor of Fantasy Football Scout, a man who spends too much time in the members area for his own good.

      Barnes may be playing striker. Not sure what's going on... Not ideal

          • 3 Years

          Trying to decide on...
          A. Digne to Pereira
          B. Richarlison to Anderson
          C. Both (-4)

          If B, I still have to play double pool defence or AWB (with Guaita).

          1. Would Ed Woodward
              5 months, 9 days ago

              I'd be tempted to do both even if Everton weren't blanking, they're complete dross.

                Indeed! Completely rubbish lately

                1. Would Ed Woodward
                    5 months, 9 days ago

                    I got rid of Rich after he was subbed against Southampton in a fit of rage, missed his first goal for ages but no regrets.

                B could be gold next week, maybe even captain material

                  Points have been intermittent but a decent run of games now bar City.

                Keeping a close eye on Gray today. Will bring him in if he looks decent.

                5 months, 9 days ago

                Better to have for GW27 and 28:
                A) Kolasinac
                B) Pereira

                1. Giggs-Tosun Particle

                  • 2 Years
                  5 months, 9 days ago

                  If it's only for 2 weeks with no plans to keep after that, then I'd say they're even and go for Kola for his price and assist consistency. Assistency.

                2. Would Ed Woodward
                    5 months, 9 days ago

                    Probably A but B better for rest of season.

                3. Giggs-Tosun Particle
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  5 months, 9 days ago

                  So who'll play up front for Leicester then, this Barnes character, Gray or Maddo?

                  1. THFC4LIFE
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    5 months, 9 days ago

                    Maybe Ghezzal?

                  5 months, 9 days ago

                  Bit of advice needed. Had planned to bring in Pereira but someone mentioned that he has been moved back to fullback from wing.

                  I really haven't been paying any attention to Leicester, is this right? If so, is there a better Leicester defender option?

                  1. Giggs-Tosun Particle
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    5 months, 9 days ago

                    Yes he's back at the back. But still worth a pop given their amazing run of fixtures. Him or Chills

                    1. Eddie`
                      • 6 Years

                    5 months, 9 days ago

                    Not sure about today but I owned him before and he kept being moved around. He's attacking even in 4-4-2 though.

                    1. Eddie`
                      • 6 Years
                      5 months, 9 days ago

                      Thanks, that's what I figured. Chilwell has always been good for a cross too.

                  England try against France

                    Why would they not try?....strange game that Rugby lark...

                  The best option for blank GW27:
                  A) Digne to Kola/Pereira
                  B) Holebas to Kola/Pereira
                  C) both for -4

                  Also have Aguero

                    You again!

                    I'd say B for Kola

                    What's having Aguero got to do with the price of fish?

                    1. Pishpott
                        5 months, 9 days ago

                        He doesn't play gw27 I'm guessing, that's the point of putting it.

                      Be tempted to do Kun > Auba(c) and either of A or B

                        Have Auba too

                          5 months, 9 days ago

                          Probably just B then to Kola

                        Morrison I think not 100% sure though

                      2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
                        • 3 Years
                        5 months, 9 days ago

                        Morrison injury. Ecuele Manga moved inside.
                        I think.

                        1. QUEN

                            So he should be good to start for the blank game week then?
