Can Redmond be trusted in Gameweek 38 finale against Huddersfield?

The arrival of Ralph Hasenhüttl at Southampton has brought the best out of FPL midfielder Nathan Redmond (£5.5m).

For that reason, many are considering him for inclusion in their squads for Gameweek 38.

With Huddersfield at home on the final day of the season, and Son Heung-min (£8.7m) suspended, he looks an easy option for Fantasy managers this weekend.

However, the midfielder has become renowned for not living up to his potential from an FPL perspective in recent seasons.

So this article will try to assess whether he is finally a trustworthy investment as the 2018/19 season comes to a close and we look forward to next year.

      Jimmy - good fixture

      At the moment, I’m on Jimi. Willing to be convinced otherwise though.

    Who to captain out of this bunch - looking for a differential

    A) Arnie
    B) Zaha

    Ederson
    VVD, TAA, Valery
    Sterling, Mane, Jota, Eriksen
    Aguero, Zaha, Arnie

    1. Jedi_Reed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Mane

      1. Girth Brooks

    2. AC Yew
        9 days, 18 hours ago

        TAA

    3. AFC49

      Robbo to Shaw?

      1. Balls of Steel
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        Maybe for feee

    4. simong1
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        Captain Aguero, Sterling or Mane and reasons why?

        1. Numb
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          9 days, 20 hours ago

          All good options, no one can know between them and luck will play a part.

        2. Balls of Steel
          • 3 Years
          9 days, 2 hours ago

          Aguero or Sterling, better fixture and will want to score early and put the game and title to bed.. Plus both due a haul after recent 1-0 results meant very low returns

        Anyone else going with a Saints triple up? I will have Bednarek, Redmond and JWP.

          Seriously considering swopping for Redmond (already have JWP and Valery) but worried about rotation.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            9 days, 20 hours ago

            Gaffer said they will play first team. JwP and Redmond a shoo in. Would expect Valery to start too

            I'm hoping it's Huddersfield who rotate and play a few youngsters

        2. aborg

          Me. I have JWP, Valery and Bednarek.
          They were my demise last week as they all came on from my bench giving me just 3 points between them. My lead is down to just 18 points to my rival now who has BB also to play !

          I hope Southampton players can pay me back because I will most probably play those three. I really hope they can at least keep a CS.

        Is Robbo fit?

          Should be fine

        4. Balls of Steel
          • 3 Years

          More likely he starts than rested tbh

      • Dakes. 🙂
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 20 hours ago

        Thinking I’ll just do Son to BSilva, honestly...

        Hazard/Doherty(bench but would play replacement over Bednarek)/Robbo out probably not worth a hit? Rival has Hazard, too.

        1. Dakes. 🙂
          • 2 Years

          (sorry, team linked it is below)

          Lloris - speroni
          Laporte Robertson* Bednarek - doherty kelly
          Mane(c) Pogba Hazard Son** - højbjerg
          Aguero Vardy Jiménez

          Thanks!

          1. AC Yew

              Can you stretch to Salah or Sterling?

            Son to Bilva is fine, no need for hits

          Thoughts here? If son drops tonight I can’t get Pogba...

            Yeah he might not given Chelsea got nothing to play for.

            1. Kingtut10
                9 days, 20 hours ago

                Hazard is a big decision to remove tbh

              • 2 Years
              9 days, 20 hours ago

              Is he not? Hmm. Can’t bring myself to ditch for a hit though...

            3. "DC"
                9 days, 19 hours ago

                He probably plays a part of the game, but def not the whole game given its only 2 days rest and he played 120min

                  He said he should be ok, not that he is ok

                    Yeah may be wishful thinking but don't want to make my last transfer a defensive one.

                Robbo not seen in the 63 training pics released today. Any news on that?

                    9 days, 20 hours ago

                    Klopp say he would be fine so I’m going off that

                    9 days, 20 hours ago

                    Is taking out hazard a good idea or a stupid one?

                    Also play one jota or A. Barnes

                    1. Andy'81
                      • 1 Year
                      9 days, 20 hours ago

                      We'll never know for sure till after the GW ends, I'm taking Hazard out for Sterling (more than likely) which is OK with me for my FT.

                      Jota over Barnes for me.

                      1. Kingtut10
                          9 days, 20 hours ago

                          Jota vs Liverpool feels like a guaranteed 2 pts

                    2. simong1
                        9 days, 20 hours ago

                        Replace Son with Pogba, Moura or Fraser?

                        Pogba - terrible form but on pens and a decent fixture at home. Capable of hauling.

                        Moura - likely to play striker. Good form but may be tired after mid week hat trick in CL. Tough fixture against an in form Everton.

                        Fraser - good form. In a fixture where goals are expected but may come up against the mighty AWB so may struggle.

                        Thoughts on the best option?

                        1. Kingtut10
                            9 days, 20 hours ago

                            I think Fraser will get an assist in that game but you could go all or nothing and pick pogba it is Cardiff after all

                          Babel or Lucas for Son? or stay with Pogba?

                            Am leaning towards B tbh, but I may need my bench this week.

                              Evening all. Im thinking of taking out Son + Jiménez this week for a -4 which of these is best replacement?

                              A) Bilva + Rondon
                              B) Redmond + Lacazette
                              C) Redmond + Rondon
                              D) Something else

                              17 points clear in my ML and guy below me has Rondon, Bilva and Redmond. Thanks

                              Is Jiménez worth taking out for a hit?

                              If so who for?

                                Do you think any cheap forwards can score 7 or more points?

                                  Possibly Rondon? Guy below me has him and I’m 17 points clear. Thinking of doing it for cover too
