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

    1. Polka Wakey O'Dot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      He looks a quality player.

    Sky doing a "best bits" interview with David Silva.

    They won't have much time left to show the game now...will they?

      Crazy clinic.

      1. THFC4LIFE

        • 2 Years

        Ban

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

      Colditz?

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

    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
      9 days, 5 hours ago

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

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

        Indeed! Completely rubbish lately

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          9 days, 5 hours 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.

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

      B could be gold next week, maybe even captain material

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

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

    3. The 5% Team
      9 days, 5 hours ago

      C

  9. Pishpott
    9 days, 5 hours ago

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

  10. dee_top
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

    1. Giggs-Tosun Particle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 5 hours 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
      9 days, 5 hours ago

      Probably A but B better for rest of season.

  11. Giggs-Tosun Particle
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    9 days, 5 hours ago

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

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

      Maybe Ghezzal?

  12. Eddie`
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 days, 5 hours 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
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 5 hours ago

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

      1. Eddie`
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 days, 5 hours ago

        Thanks.

    2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 5 hours 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`
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 days, 5 hours ago

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

  13. Ginkapo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    England try against France

    1. Eddie`
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 5 hours ago

      Breached by Breach.

    2. Polka Wakey O'Dot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 5 hours ago

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

  14. dee_top
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    9 days, 5 hours ago

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

    Also have Aguero

    1. Giggs-Tosun Particle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 5 hours ago

      You again!

      I'd say B for Kola

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

      1. Pishpott
        9 days, 5 hours ago

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

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

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

      1. dee_top
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 5 hours ago

        Have Auba too

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

          Probably just B then to Kola

          1. dee_top
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            9 days, 5 hours ago

            Thnx, let’s see what will happen today

    3. dee_top
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 5 hours ago

      Leaning towards C)
      Thnx!

  15. QUEN
    9 days, 5 hours ago

    Who has peltier replaced & why?

    Can’t work out who was the defender before

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

      Morrison I think not 100% sure though

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

      Morrison injury. Ecuele Manga moved inside.
      I think.

      1. QUEN
        9 days, 5 hours ago

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

  16. Salah otralala
    9 days, 5 hours ago

    Hazard + Luiz -> Mane + Pereira for -4?

  17. diesel001
    • 2 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    England vs France in the rugby. Interesting....
