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

      • 1 Year
      12 days, 17 hours 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
    12 days, 17 hours 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

    Vardy officially dead as an FPL option?

    1. Athletico Timbo

    1. Misteak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 17 hours ago

  17. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    12 days, 17 hours ago

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

  18. GianniBanani
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    12 days, 17 hours ago

    Both bgws 31 and 33 will be confirmed after Chelsea-United?

      1. Athletico Timbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 17 hours ago

        I was wondering if it'd be that.

  21. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    12 days, 17 hours ago

    Leicester playing a 2-8 formation today!

  22. Differential (c)
    • 3 Years
    12 days, 17 hours ago

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

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 17 hours ago

      Gray

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 17 hours ago

        He has done it before

      2. Differential (c)
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 17 hours ago

        I guess CS for Spurs, then!

  23. El Lobito
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    12 days, 17 hours ago

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

    1. Amey
      12 days, 17 hours ago

      I'm

      1. Amey
        12 days, 17 hours ago

        For Digne*

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 17 hours ago

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

    3. The 5% Team
      12 days, 17 hours ago

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

      1. El Lobito
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        12 days, 17 hours 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
      12 days, 17 hours ago

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

  24. Kane Lane
    • 4 Years
    12 days, 17 hours 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.

    1. Kane Lane
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 17 hours ago

      Him not home lol

  25. Firminoooo
    • 3 Years
    12 days, 17 hours ago

    Would like an assist or goal from Trippier today.

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

      yes please

  26. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    12 days, 17 hours ago

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

    1. Amey
      12 days, 17 hours ago

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

      But you beat me @ that.

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 17 hours ago

        1. Amey
          12 days, 17 hours ago

          GL

  27. Differential (c)
    • 3 Years
    12 days, 17 hours ago

    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
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 17 hours ago

      He might be njured. Take some cool it juice until we know pal.

  28. g40steve
    12 days, 17 hours ago

    1. Paddington Bear
      • 1 Year

  29. Scheister
    • 6 Years
    12 days, 17 hours ago

    2. SADIO SANÉ
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 17 hours ago
