      B for me coz deulo & jiminez would be rotation risky pick!!!

    3. Zladan

      I’d not have Jimmy considering other options that are available to choose from in a front 7

      1. Wizard of Özil
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        29 days, 7 hours ago

        Who's your preference in that price bracket?

  2. yuva247

    Do you think Higuain is not going to start considering he was subbed for giroud against everton ?

    1. Wizard of Özil
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      29 days, 8 hours ago

      Might not play both tbf. Form not great and Sarri does like to experiment

      1. yuva247
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 8 hours ago

        What about Luiz do u think he will be axed as well?

      2. Lemongrab
        • 9 Years
        29 days, 7 hours ago

        'Sarri does like to experiment'

        He doesn't. Would be surprised if he doesn't stick with Higuain.

        1. Wizard of Özil
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          29 days, 7 hours ago

          Regularly switches between Pedro and Willian, Barkley & Kovacic, Alonso & Emerson. Switched between Morata and Giroud when he was there. Higuain struggling and Giroud scored a hattrick in his last full game (albeit against week opposition), so it's certainly possible he might try Giroud there again. He clearly needs to do something as Chelsea can't score atm

  3. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
    • 1 Year
    29 days, 8 hours ago

    Which one??
    1)Bilva + Kepa(double up with Luiz)
    Or,
    2)Dilva + Ryann

  4. Spiders in Diapers

    Today's FH32 draft:

    Ddg
    Azpi luiz duffy
    Hazard sterling d.silva pogba mili
    Aguero rashford

    Good enough?

  5. waterboy
    • 6 Years
    29 days, 8 hours ago

    Can you please cast an eye over this many changed FH Team?
    I'm beginning to lose my mind slightly, with so many permutations. Any thoughts and suggestions will be very much appreciated.

    Intending to play 3-4-3

    Kepa
    Azpi Lindelof AWB
    Dilva Jota Hazard Sterling
    Aguero Lukaku Zaha

    Boruc, Peltier, Simpson, Stephens

    Thoughts for Jota is that Jimi potentially has a game on 27th at 2am GMT in California, so is very unlikely to be ready for the 3pm kick off on Saturday 30th

    1. KingOllie
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 8 hours ago

      Is ok, some nice punts

    2. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 8 hours ago

      Team looks grand.
      If you are worried about jota go Rashford instead of Lukaku and upgrade. Or alternatively you could get townsend instead of Jota.
      Townsend pops up with goals every so often links with zaha a lot seems to be igniored

      1. waterboy
        • 6 Years
        29 days, 8 hours ago

        Thanks
        I wasn't concerned about Jota as I think he will be playing as main striker due to Jimi being knackered. I am concerned about City's gametime though.

        1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
          • 9 Years
          29 days, 8 hours ago

          Well aguero wont play internationals this week.
          I would be worried about sterling though (internationals) plus he has a lot of competition. He could still do well in one game though.

          1. waterboy
            • 6 Years
            29 days, 7 hours ago

            I agree, just too nervous to go without Sterling. I have tried a couple of teams with Rashford in them, but I am just unsure of him now he is out wide again.

            I looked at your 4-4-2 team below. I think it looks very good, (except the missing Kun)

    3. Brocc
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 7 hours ago

      Good point on Jimi, he probably needs a little rest against Burnley. Thanks..

  6. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
    • 9 Years
    29 days, 8 hours ago

    I made up this 4-4-2 team (just to see what it looks like - doubt I will go with it)

    Ederson (hamer)
    Young-Luiz-Rudiger-Smalling (simpson)
    Hazard-Sterling-Pogba-D-Silva (romeu)
    Kane-Zaha-(Naisse)

    So it is possible if you have a TV of around 105 to avoid 'non top 6' defenders and go 4 at the back. You could go for a 4.5 instead of Naisse

    1. KingOllie
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 8 hours ago

      no Kun no party

      1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
        • 9 Years
        29 days, 8 hours ago

        Exactly it only takes that fella one game or even 30 minutes from the bench especially with the opponents he will be facing.
        I would say aguero will get a minimum of 120 minutes at least.

  7. Bielsa's Binoculars
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    29 days, 8 hours ago

    Which combo is better?

    A) Sterling and Milli

    B) Dilva and Sane

    1. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 8 hours ago

      A

    2. zhiren
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 5 hours ago

      A

  8. Miniboss
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    29 days, 8 hours ago

    Why all the love for Batshuayi? Will he play two games?

    1. Jᴀʀᴠish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 8 hours ago

      Can't see why not - Palace aren't playing for anything else.

    2. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 8 hours ago

      Because he looks sharp and energetic.
      Good value.
      Plus he has got some fpl returns in 3 out of the six games he has played.
      But with Lukaku out he will more than likely play more minutes for Belgium - only drawback

    3. Miniboss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      29 days, 7 hours ago

      Fair enough! Need to see how Belgium matches go and maybe get him to my team.

  9. Zladan
    • 1 Year
    29 days, 8 hours ago

    Thoughts?

    Kepa
    Laporte Lindelöf Alderweireld
    Sterling Hazard Pogba Mili Deulofeu
    Agüero Higuaín

    1. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 8 hours ago

      Or Trippier over Toby

  10. Bielsa's Binoculars
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 8 hours ago

    Right, this is my favourite FH yet if Sarri doesn’t get sacked:

    Ederson
    Azpi— Cathcart —Tomkins
    Hazard—Pogba — Alli —Dilva
    Kun—Higuain—Rashford

    1. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 8 hours ago

      Sterling is an absolute essential.

      1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
        • 9 Years
        29 days, 8 hours ago

        Not true what is essential is that you get the right combination of points based on the team you have to get a green arrow.
        How this is achieved is up to you - going against the grain or going with the popular choice. One may get a bigger green arrow than the other if it works.
        Not long ago gw 29 Salah was 'essential' but I did an 8 point hit and got rid of him.
        The word essential is a myth in fantasy football, the waves constantly change - it just depends on when you get on or off them,

  11. Bielsa's Binoculars
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 8 hours ago

    Doesn’t anyone with Kepa in their FH team have a shaky feeling about him after what happened the other day?

    Is it completely resolved now?

    1. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 8 hours ago

      The penalty save?

  12. Zladan
    • 1 Year
    29 days, 8 hours ago

    The certainties of a Kaneless FH32:

    3 City (Aguero + Sterling + Ederson/Laporte)

    3 Chelsea (Hazard + 2 of Luiz/Kepa/Higuaín/Azpi)

    2 United (Pogba + Defender)

  13. Scotty B
    • 6 Years
    29 days, 8 hours ago

    "Everyone is going to play especially John [Stones], Kevin [De Bruyne] and Benjamin [Mendy], and all the players come back because we need everyone."

    Stones & Mendy now options for FH32?

    1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 8 hours ago

      If you think that they could score well in at least one game.

    2. Lemongrab
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 7 hours ago

      Mendy too much of a punt although if he finally looks fit could be a good option on WC in 34

  14. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    29 days, 7 hours ago

    Is anyone tempted by Pedro with a FH this week? 4.0 ppg is ok for 6.4m and it's a cheap way into the CHE attack for 2 easy fixtures.

    For me it's looking like:

    A) Wan-B, Pedro & Kane
    B) Lindelof, Hazard & Zaha

    • zhiren

      To Kane or not to Kane? Feels like A is more balanced but then B has Kane...

      A:
      Kepa
      Lindelof / Jonny / Azpi
      DSilva / Pog / Sterling / Hazard
      Kun / Jimenez / Rash

      B:
      Ederson
      Lindelof / Jonny / Schlupp / AWB
      Mili / Pog / Sterling / Hazard
      Kun / Kane
