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.

      Whizzer, any chance of posting teams without first names....bit of a pain in the Llorente, to be honest....

  11. Differentiator

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

    2. Tev
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 11 days ago

      Ffs...Gylfi and Digne both hit the bar leaving Holebas with 7 points last on my bench... fkn AWB now comes in for Toby. Can’t make it up

  13. Polka Wakey O'Dot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 11 days ago

    Let’s see if Harvey Barnes impresses again. Looks a really good player so far.

  14. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 11 days ago

    Vardy officially dead as an FPL option?

    1. Athletico Timbo
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 11 days ago

      Carrier pigeon?

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

    2ft which of the moves to do:

    A) Rich > Anderson/Jota
    B) Ings > Rondon
    C) Digne > Kola/Pereira

    Etheridge
    Robbo TAA Doherty Awb (Digne)

    1. Misteak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 11 days ago

  17. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 11 days ago

    No Lamela in team or bench? Other players might get to touch the ball....

  18. GianniBanani
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

            I was wondering if it'd be that.

        Leicester playing a 2-8 formation today!

      • Differential (c)

        That Leicester side . . Who the f is the striker?!

        1. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Gray

          1. Ask Yourself
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 11 days ago

            He has done it before

          2. Differential (c)
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 11 days ago

            I guess CS for Spurs, then!

      • El Lobito
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 11 days ago

        Anyone getting in Pereira now for Leicester's kind run? He's class.

        1. Amey
            6 months, 11 days ago

            I'm

            1. Amey
                6 months, 11 days ago

                For Digne*

            2. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              6 months, 11 days ago

              Yeah - unless Palace get knocked out of the cup and I decide to get a Toon defender instead

            3. The 5% Team
              • 1 Year
              6 months, 11 days ago

              has been waiting on my bench, ready for next run of fixtures

              1. El Lobito
                • 2 Years
                6 months, 11 days ago

                Hopefully this Vardy thing doesn't become a soap opera as it would distract. Also, would deprive Pereira of a good striker to assist.

            4. Would Ed Woodward
                6 months, 11 days ago

                Either him, Maguire or Chilwell, plenty of time to decide.

            5. Kane Lane
              • 4 Years
              6 months, 11 days ago

              Logic to do
              Sane>Anderson
              Aguero > Auba/Laca Free
              Is it worth it to also upgrade Kamara to Arnie -4 but its leaves me 0.1 if Aguero raises I cannot get home back.

              I appreciate feed back.

                • 4 Years

              Triple MUN = 0-3
              Triple LIV = 3-0
              Triple Spurs = I'll take a 3-0 win 😉

              1. Amey
                  6 months, 11 days ago

                  😮
                  I thought i have too many eggs in 2-3 baskets.
                  3 pool
                  2 United
                  2 Wolves

                  Vardy-Puel bustup? Insane to bench Vardy vs Spurs, he's the ideal striker to play for an underdog team imo. Shocking decision.

                  1. El Lobito
                    • 2 Years
