How the Top 10k are looking ahead of Blank Gameweek 31

This article examines how the Fantasy managers that sit in the top 10,000 (at the point of the Gameweek 30 deadline) are shaping up ahead of Blank Gameweek 31.

Studying the most-owned players in Gameweek 30, seven of the “template team” are without a Premier League fixture next weekend.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£4.5m), Matt Doherty (£5.4m), Paul Pogba (£9.0m), Son Heung-min (£8.8m), Raul Jimenez (£6.9m), Sergio Aguero (£11.9m) and Marcus Rashford (£7.7m) blank in Gameweek 31 due to the clash with the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Doherty, Wan-Bissaka, Pogba, Jimenez and Aguero are each owned by around 50% of FPL managers or more in the top 10,000.

11.2% of the top 10k own all five of these players.

As the graphic below shows, three of the four clubs with the most representation in the top 10k are without a Premier League match in Gameweek 31.

The combined average number of players just from Wolves, Manchester United, Manchester City and Crystal Palace in the top 10,000 FPL squads is 5.3, suggesting there are plenty of these elite managers who aren’t yet in a position to field a full complement of Fantasy players in Gameweek 31.

Chip Usage

43.5% of FPL managers inside the top 10,000 have all four of their chips – Wildcard, Free Hit, Bench Boost and Triple Captain – still available, as the below graphic shows.

Over 25% of the top 10k have already used two or more of their chips going into Blank Gameweek 31.

The breakdown below shows which chips have already been used by our leading FPL bosses.

Almost 32% of the FPL bosses inside the top 10,000 have already used their second Wildcard, while 2,207 of these managers will have to navigate the weeks ahead without their Free Hit chip.

More than one in six of these managers have already deployed their Bench Boost chip.

Individual player ownership

The below table shows how well-owned this cherry-picked selection of players are among the top 10,000 FPL managers.

All of these Fantasy assets have league fixtures in Gameweek 31.

Gameweek 30 Captaincy

We have focused mostly on Gameweek 31 in this piece but the below graphic shows the spread of Gameweek 30 captaincy picks within the top 10,000.


Almost 9% of the top 10,000 managers look primed for a rank hike after Raheem Sterling‘s (£11.4m) hat-trick on Saturday evening.

      Most transfers are worthwhile this week if FH32.

        would you go a step further, take a -8 and field 11 then?

        1. Tsparkes10
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Yup defo. I'm taking a - 12 to field 11. Appearances will cover alone so anything else is a bonus and makes it more exciting

            😉 good answer

  4. Tsparkes10
    1 month, 9 days ago

    First year on here and was flying. Top 1.5k at highest point but used my WC first half of season stupidly and didn't jump on bandwagon of Son and Pogba early enough. Now sit at 70k with all Chips left. No experience on what to do so kind of following crowd, learning curve I guess?

    1. DA Minnion
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yeah . Luck plays a big part of it too.

      1. Tsparkes10
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yup, has there always been a huge template? Never really been on something this big and stuck with mates so was kinda more fun as we all had different players. But in ML this year there's so many similaritiess

        1. DA Minnion
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Yes when you have so many talking fantasy all day every day people lose the power of thinking for themselves. I forget what it's like to make my own decisions.

          1. Tsparkes10
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Sounds quite annoying. May quite whilst I'm ahead haha, but think I've already been hooked fs

                    A joke regarding a striker and Argentina squad. didn't go down well... Learnt my lesson I guess

                      Jokes are frowned upon. Way too serious on here to be joking.

        Luck is bigger than most think.
        No goal to Sterling and who knows if he gets any returns.

        1. Tsparkes10
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Very true. Had loads of things like that but guess others that have gone my way... Football in a nutshell 🙂

        2. DA Minnion
          • 6 Years

          Just seen it . That should never have counted but as a sterling Aguero owner I'll take it.

      You’ve done the right thing in holding onto all your chips.

      All will become clearer in the next few GWs.

      But I know you’ll be fine anyways

      1. Tsparkes10

        Cheers mate. Hopefully 🙂

      Follow the crowd for a third of your team for the rest of it try and be more creative. Look at the third/fourth options from the teams you are considering.

      You are not alone in that great drop.
      The great Ville Ronka has had one green arrow since gw17 and was under the top 1k - now he is 70k and slipping into mediocrity (by his standards)

      1. Tsparkes10
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Guess that's what to do next season. Maybe take less seriously and have more fun 🙂

        1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I noticed even from listening to the podcasts people can become rigid in thier choices, particularly if they are in a group.

          It is hard to explain but you have to take sensible risks consistently to do really well (I have rarely done that - no patience at times).
          Think ahead of the next likely flavour of the month before it happens - hard thing to do. Then you have to force yourself to get rid of some players that have served you well.

          1. Tsparkes10
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Yup... Didn't realise how much goes into it tbh. Plenty of time to learn and improve

  5. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    I have never been as pleased and annoyed at the same time after a gameweek.

    Last gameweek I TC'd sterling against a weakened Bournemouth side after getting him in specially - against the grain despite having a blank soon.

    Thought it was better using the TC than this week because of Bournemouth injuries - and 'open' Bournemouth style.
    I got a whole three points X3.
    But this week I kept the armband on sterling .
    So now I have a 42 points captain - but in my head I am 39 points down because of what might have been - the other option I did not take....

    1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Edit 18 points down

    2. DA Minnion
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      At least you captained him this week.

      1. Numb
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Still annoying

      2. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yeah I suppose, better then another blank!
        There will be no whinging out of me if Salah blanks, my main tactic for a good jump in rank was spreading Salah funds and going mane - liverpool double defence..

        1. DA Minnion
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I did same. Salah to Sterling last week.captained him last week but not this. Got Mane for Son so need him to beat Salah tomorrow. Not confident of it though. Think Salah could go big.

          1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            I am still fairly confident Mane will outscore Salah in the next two games - he looks very lively.

    3. Would Ed Woodward
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Would you even have TC'd him this week though or saved it for another player in another game?

      1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Most likely I would have - it was either this gameweek or last gameweek, because of the way the free hits / WCs are likely to fall the free hit 32 tactic etc.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I understand the frustration of course, I had Sterling and Aguero in the double GW, was always using TC on one of the two and chose the wrong one.

          1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            I did think of those poor souls who TC sane recently for the DGW my consolation was at least I got 3 points.

            I wouldn't mind, but last game-week there were posters discussing the TC chip on sterling.
            The Bournemouth injuries swayed me - and a definite starter was rested etc.
            But another poster said sterling TC v watford would be a better choice.
            I can't remember who it was but he/she was - but was bang on.
            Wish I heeded the advice! 😀
            I suppose over the last two captains choices I made it leveled out in a sense. Would have been chuffed with 9 x 3 - or thereabouts for TC.

    Best Saturday of the season.

    84 from 5 and hoping for 110-120 and highest single gw score. Team had been going down the toilet until bit the bullet and wc last week. Top 100k back in reach.

    1. DA Minnion
      • 6 Years

      That's amazing.

    2. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…

      That is some jump 400k ish places.
      Still have lots to play as you say.
      You must have felt you were stuck in the fantasy mud for a while.
      This is your shawshank redemption!

    3. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…

      No TC use either!

  8. JasonG123

    Sterling to Hazard (-4) if pursuing the FH32 WC34 strategy? I lose 0.2m on Sterling when I get him back in 34 (though perhaps he will fall before then).

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Sterling to anyone will be popular this week.

      1. JasonG123
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Well the alternative is just playing with 10 this week or trading Doherty/Pogba instead.

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Guess it depends on what it costs you to get him back.
          Sterling makes getting anyone except Salah easy.

          1. JasonG123
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            It costs me 0.2m. I feel it is probably worth the 0.2m for the extra points from Hazard. Getting him back is easy on FH32 and then WC34.

    “Current team looking like this”;
    [no FTs left, £1.1m itb]
    -So anything extra is for a hit!

    Robbo • TAA • Digne
    Salah • Fraser • Felipe (MGW, Pogs)
    Vardy (Kun, Rash)

    Going to do;
    MGW + Kun >> Haz + Wilson

      Nice. If FH in 32 I'd go keeper or defender to Boruc or Ake also

    Sterling to rise this week despite blank? Will do Sterling to Hazzo but might wait for him to rise so I can pocket 0.1 m profit...

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Hopefully. Same plan. Knowing casuals he probably rises

        Thanks..

      Hazard is creeping up. They may both rise tomorrow.

        Yes hazzo is rising quickly too...

      I am keeping sterling benching him.
      Are most people selling him on here?

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Selling for Mane after he rises.

    5. Dakes.
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Hoping so. Depending on how Mane looks I’m likely doing Sterling to Mane, but would like to pocket some change if possible.

      If Mane looks tosh though it’ll probably be keep Sterling and do Doherty to TAA to go w/ Salah and Robertson

  12. Yoshioka
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Just missed out on price change some I'm .1 off Pogba > Hazard.

    Are people generally binning Pogba and Rashford now so they can field teams in 31 + 33 (assuming FH32)? Also, is -8 worth it to field an 11 in 31 and have good options in 33.

    Sorry about all the questions... first year playing so I've not seen this business end of the season before!

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Pretty much. Pogba being kept by most if possible.

      1. Yoshioka
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Thanks. What looks better:

        Pogba + Rashford to Hazard and Wilson
        or
        Dendoncker + Rashford to Fraser and Wilson (keep Pog and don't have to pay .4 or more if I want him back in later).

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Hazard vs Fraser for 31/33.
          Pogba likely to drop another time.

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I'm likely keeping Pogba but possibly selling Aguero Rash Jimi. I'm considering as much as -12 with Lascelles possibly out. 2 x 2pt in 2 fixtures vs DNP 0pts pays for itself

          Showing your age too much. Only own TAA and Salah so a Mane fail is fine.

      Saw that earlier. Utterly baffling and stupid decision from WBA, and a real shame for Darren Moore. Fans aren’t happy about it either.

      1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…

          Got sacked because they've been revolting lately

    2. Tsparkes10

      They've been awful tbf, begging we go up automatic... Don't fancy them in playoffs with a new manager

  16. Dakes.
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    First solidly good week in a while and a green arrow, and only thanks to Vardy and Sterling(c).

    The captaincy got off to a jammy start, but you gotta take what you get! Hope Jimenez Pogba and Higuain can deliver tomorrow, with modest returns for Robbo and Salah 🙂

    Sterling captain certainly took the sting off of playing Fab and Fanny over Boruc and Camarasa!

    How you all doing so far?

    1. Chucky
      • 5 Years

      Well done! Brave capo choice and it paid off for you...

      • 9 Years

      Similar score to you this gameweek - salahless team for me.

      But miles off you in terms of consistency and points!

      I am hoping salah will go quiet or get a niggle (not injured - cos then eeveryone will sell him)

      1. Dakes.
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Nice one, and must’ve been a nice last few weeks without salah!

        Could be tricky tomorrow though. Good luck!

      Meh, Sterling helped stop a massive drop. Need Salah to do well and won't even watch the game 🙁

      1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        You've gone the opposite direction to me completely in the last few weeks.
        I dunno how that happened!?
        The world has gone mad!

          Bad transfers, Higuian should really have been Vardy in hindsight.
          Holding to many duds and didn't play the DGW well.

      2. Dakes.
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yeah, glad sterling came good!

        I’m sure Salah, or at least Liverpool, will do well tmr - they really have to

    4. camarozz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      65pts 5 to play.

      Sterling (c) and Vardy 58 of those!!

      1. Dakes.
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Just outdoing me! 64 with 5 to play. Nice one mate

    5. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Well earned. Would've loved Vardy in but couldn't do without multiple hits unless selling Aguero which wasn't happening. 35 atm 6 left Pog Rash Jim Salah Mane TAA

      1. Dakes.
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Still in a pretty good position, and set up well for next week with those Liverpool lads

    6. Would Ed Woodward
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Doing pretty good, captained Vardy over Sterling though who was my vice.

      1. Dakes.
        • 2 Years

        Ah well - id be happy with that still, great score for Vardinho

          • 2 Years

          Haha, yeah, but we are lucky that both delivered! If Vardy blanked after switching the armband off Sterling yesterday it would have hurt a lot!

      2. Dakes.
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Wow! Nice one! Must be a massive rank boost.

        Bit disappointed in AWB Felipe Fabs Pereira myself, but can’t complain about sterling and vardy

        You think Alonso will start? Need him to start....

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Not sure, he was rested last gameweek against weak opposition with the EL game in mind (and 4 games in 2 weeks was going to be tough) ... I can hope 🙂

  17. Chucky
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Need TAA to score 10+ points.. went for him instead of Vardy 🙁

    1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Possible he could get a few assists.
      But Burnley will be battling hard after Cardiff's result on Saturday.

  18. 007 [RoboKlopp]
    • 2 Years

    For -12 (FH in 32)
    Kun, Son, Jim, Hojberg
    -> Vardy, Haz, Wilson, 5,5 mid

    It is worth it?

    1. ⚒Jay⚒ American Dycho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Just about. Maybe leave the Son bit until just before deadline as you’ll probably know if he plays 33 or not.

    Ageuro owners.. keeping or selling through GW31?

    Bought him at 11.6m. Tempted to sell just cos of the extra cash that gives..
    Planning about 4 transfers this GW (2ft's) and kind of need more flexibility.

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Bought at 11.3m Would've already traded to Vardy if your buying price

      1. murty1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Have Vardy already at least.

        Prob going for Higuain + Rash to Wilson too.

    2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 2 Years

      Sell

    3. ⚒Jay⚒ American Dycho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Sell if you still got chips. Probably keep if not.

  20. ⚒Jay⚒ American Dycho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Weighing up whether FH or TC in 32. What looks best? Only differentials posted.

    A: (TC in use but -8. Would WC34, FH35, BB36)

    Patricio (bur, MNU),
    AWB (HUD, tot)
    Brooks (lei), Anderson (EVE),
    Higuain (car, BRI)

    B: (FH in use. Would WC34, BB35, TC36).

    Ederson (ful, CAR),
    Shaw (WAT, wol),
    Jota (bur, MNU), Pogba (WAT, wol),
    Lukaku (WAT, wol)

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      This is why I don't like TC over FH not even factoring lovely pivot between 31/33 players. Some of those match ups on paper look like you want TC scoring 30pts base

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        *Assuming what appear odds on cup results happen

      2. ⚒Jay⚒ American Dycho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        My 31/33 would be a strong XI though. For free in 31 and a hit in 33. Being rigid with the players in A though, over a good few weeks would probably mean more hits as it’s so long to get through.

  21. tafrère
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Just inside the top 10k but no Hazard and no Mané tomorrow. Plus my captain already played (Aguero). Wish me luck, it will be a sunday of hiding behind the sofa since three big hitters can kill my rank.

  22. camarozz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    To field 10 for 31.

    Sterling ➡️ Hazard
    Jota ➡️ Fraser
    Jimenez ➡️Wilson

    FH 32. All chips intact.

    1. camarozz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      For a hit obviously.

    2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yes. How many hits?

    3. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yes. Defo

      1. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Just the one hit.

        Team for 31 would be

        Fab
        TAA/Pereira/Luiz
        Salah/Haz/Frazer/Siggy
        Vardy/Wilson

    4. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Looks good. Which big hitter won't you have on GW31 ?

      1. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Only one I won't have is a 2nd Pool defender.

        Unless I sell Luiz!!

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

          You'll have Salah, Hazard, Mané and Higuain ? That's good.

          1. camarozz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            That would be nice but extremely hard to get.

        2. camarozz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Also have Boruc whom I might play over Fab actually

        3. 007 [RoboKlopp]
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Who is another striker? Jimenez? Or you still keep Pogba?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            Rashford and Pogba ill be keeping.

    0FT £1.8

    Already took a -4. Do you think an additionnal -4 is required to bring a goalie ?

    1. Mr Frost

      get boruc in.

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

        Do you think Boruc deserves a -4 ? I could still bring a goalie for GW33 so it will be really just for 31.

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Boruc is worth -4.

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

        He'll need to get at least 4 pts to make it even. So basically a cleanie for BOU or the transfer is a fail. Really hesitating.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          1 month, 9 days ago

          He got 6 points against city last week despite conceding! CS this week too.

        2. Mr Frost
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          *2 points, not 4

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

            No. If he gets 2 pts, it's a -2 for me.

        3. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          You should be getting him for 31 and 33 both nice home fixtures. 2 conceded last 4 home including Chelsea and City

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

            Could bring any goalie for free in GW33 and field 11 players.

    Just discovered I can do Kane > Calvert-Lewin & then Hayden > Sterling next week b4 Free Hit. Tasty!

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Am I completely misunderstanding this? Which GW are you FHing?

      1. Mr Frost
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        32. can't i sneak a transfer in first no?

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          1 month, 9 days ago

          FH cancels all transfers for that week.

          1. Mr Frost
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            makes no differences but ok, good to know.

      2. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I'm confused also

        1. Mr Frost
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I thought I could use my 32 transfer before I free hit, so i'll get sterling in 33 now instead.

          1. Kiwivillan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Sterling likely doesn't play 33

            1. Mr Frost
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              hmmm yes that's true. come on calvert lewin!

            Wouldn't work anyway.

  26. Dakes.

    Will watch closely how both look tomorrow, but kinda tempted to keep Sterling and do Doherty to TAA.... hmm. Was all set on Sterling to Mane.

    Fabs/Boruc
    Robertson Pereira (Doherty AWB Bednarek)
    Salah(c) Anderson 🙁 (Pogba Sterling Camarasa)
    Higuain Vardy Jimenez

    1FT, 2.2 ITB. Also planning Camarasa to Fraser

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I'm doing Sterling to Mane, currently have TAA and Salah.

  27. Hulk Smash
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Got Fraser first on my bench with 10 points (stuck with him since GW 6).

    Robertson, TAA, Salah, Pogba, Barnes and Jiminez still to play. Is a nice TAA benching the best I can hope for?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Probably as much chance as me getting Rice 15pts 3rd sub last GW

      1. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I can dream

  28. No Salah
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Team for GW31:

    Alisson
    TAA Robbo Digne
    Hazard Fraser
    Higuain Vardy Wilson

    So far have 9, will take two hits.

    who else would you get?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      No Salah?

    Congratulations to all sterling cappers!

    That's massive and I wished I followed through my gut in captaining him but backed out in fear of Aguero.

    Huge question this week is Vardy or Higuain!!?

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      1 month, 9 days ago

      To transfer in or captain?

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

        Captain. I had him on captaincy then I backed out

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

      I did the same but at least we owned him, many do not.

    3. HammersFan
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Would say Vardy and then hazard if you want a Chelsea attacker

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

        I have funds for either of those + Hazard so that's fine.

        I guess vardy it is then!

  30. HammersFan

    Anybody else think Pickford is overrated, yes I know he saved a penalty but he seems to have so many mistakes in him it’s laughable. Hope Heaton gets a chance for England has a much cooler head.

    Maybe he’s to young, maybe he’s been made to think he’s better than he is. And what was he doing start of the second half with the Newcastle fans. Seem like another joe hart.

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

      Totally agree he is not as good as Heaton, makes far too many irrational decisions under pressure.

      1. HammersFan
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Shame as he was good at Sunderland, could it be a case of to much pressure at a young age?

    2. JasonG123
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Well he was rewarded with 5 FPL points because he made a horrible mistake and rugby tackled Rondon. He should've at least been YCed for it.

      As an Aussie I think Heaton or Pope should be the England keeper.

    3. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      There's an England GK curse. Too much evidence in favour

    4. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Heaton is a great keeper. He is criminally underrated because he plays for an unfashionable club.
