FPL position change and Leicester move boost Perez’s appeal

Ayoze Perez has completed a £30m move to Leicester City, leaving Newcastle United after five years in the north-east.

Perez was one of a handful of Fantasy Premier League assets who saw his position change upon the game’s relaunch this summer.

An FPL forward in his first four seasons in the top flight, Perez was reclassified as a midfielder in June after playing more than half of his games in 2018/19 in more of a supporting role behind Salomon Rondon.

Had his Fantasy position been altered 12 months earlier, the extra points he would have accumulated for goals/clean sheets would have put him in the top ten highest-scoring FPL midfielders of 2018/19.

Available for £6.5m this season, Perez would have been an intriguing prospect even if had stayed on Tyneside – but a move to a Leicester side that has developed an attacking swagger under new boss Brendan Rodgers will provoke even more interest in the Fantasy community.

    Boy Goalie is hard this year as the 4.5 choices are weak. People going with Ryan alone feel good about that??? Besides the fact that Bournes are leaky, are reason that Begovic isn't getting more attention? Good early fixtures to figure out if another option emerges. I'm currently on Begovic/Krul pairing and not seeing many others. Any thoughts?

      Whoever grabs the Burnley spot is the one to get in my eyes

        Their defense last season was atrocious. I think dishing out the extra cash for Pickford/Lloris will pay dividends.

            Burnley will do better defensively this season

            1. AuFeld
              • 2 Years

              Oh yes. So will Manchester United.

      2. Would Ed Woodward

          Ryan, Burnley keeper or Ederson for me.

        I also like the WHAM/Burnley pairing, but doing that with my 4th and 5th defenders as Fabs is an extra 0.5 and cheaper to do that rotation in defense?

        Godawful bench but bar that how's it looking gurus? 3 Bournemouth for first 2.

        Heaton
        VVD - Digne - Ake
        Salah - Siggy - Brooks - KdB
        Aguero - Jota - King

          Kun to Kane
          Jota to fodder
          Get TAA/Robbo
          Upgrade bench

            Kun is one of the most explosive and consistent players ever in the game while fit. There no reason to doubt him at the start of the season. Kane has been patchy for a while.

        2. Andy'81

          I'm favoring Kane over Aguero, can see Jesus getting a lot more game time this season and that extra 1m could help with that bench.

        3. jayzico

          Not keen on Kane

        Best mid at 6m or under?

        1. AuFeld
          • 2 Years
          14 days, 8 hours ago

          Jorghino on PK's at £5m should be great value.

          1. Syphras
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            14 days, 8 hours ago

            Any chance he would be removed from PKs with Lampard at the helm?

            1. AuFeld
              • 2 Years
              14 days, 8 hours ago

              There is always a possibility with a new manager and with the transfer window open. We should get hints of the pecking order for PK's in the preseason.

            2. BDA Shadow
              • 4 Years
              13 days, 16 hours ago

              He's the only one in the team who's been a designated taker before, and he's got a solid record at 11-1. There shouldn't really be any questions around it.

          Townsend

            • 5 Years

            Already have Zaha, otherwise I would definitely consider him.

        3. Would Ed Woodward
            14 days, 8 hours ago

            Daniel James at 6m if he plays well pre-season.

            1. Syphras
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              14 days, 8 hours ago

              Is he likely to be a starter?

              1. Would Ed Woodward
                  14 days, 8 hours ago

                  He's in both my drafts so I hope so lol, obviously I'll take him out if he's not. He looked really good the few times I saw him last season, has competition in Martial who Ole lost patience with at the end of last season and Sanchez who is the worst signing in the history of football.

                  1. Would Ed Woodward
                      14 days, 8 hours ago

                      If he does look like starting, everyone will have him, an attacking Utd winger at 6m?!

                    • AuFeld
                      • 2 Years
                      14 days, 8 hours ago

                      Sanchez was for free. We did have to pay for di Maria and his three goals.

                      1. Would Ed Woodward
                          14 days, 8 hours ago

                          At least Di Maria was good for a few games and we got a fee for selling. Apart from how awful Sanchez has been, it's the effect his wages have had on the rest of our contract negotiations that's the worst part.

                          1. AuFeld
                            • 2 Years
                            14 days, 8 hours ago

                            You think Rashford's new contract is a little 'too much?'

                            Bonkers we didn't keep Herrera.

                            1. Would Ed Woodward
                                14 days, 8 hours ago

                                I think every player, including Rashford, De Gea, Herrera, entered into contract negotiations with the stance that 'if Sanchez is on 350k a week...'

                      • 4 Years
                      14 days, 8 hours ago

                      You could say that for every player at that price!

                      1. Would Ed Woodward
                          14 days, 8 hours ago

                          True, but not every 6m is an attacking winger for a top six club.

                          1. Jarvish
                            • 4 Years
                            14 days, 8 hours ago

                            Top 6? I admire your optimism 😉 😛

                  2. Would Ed Woodward
                      14 days, 8 hours ago

                      Leicester do have some really tempting assets but I don't want multiple from the start, currently have Vardy but also like Maddison and Perez at their prices, anyone doubling up?

                      1. Syphras
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 5 Years
                        14 days, 8 hours ago

                        I am also tempted. If Perez is a regular I might jump on him.

                        Kind of waiting to see what happens in preseason.

                      Something to think about - if Kane should revert to his "normal" score of 210+ points a season, he will actually be better value at 0.68 PPG/mill than any of the midfielders that played previous season, even without captaincy counted. Highest midfielder is Zaha at 0.67 PPG/mill. Sterling is 0.57 PPG/mill and Salah is 0.54 PPG/mill.

                          Well, he was injured large chunks of last seaosn and still got 160 points. 3 seasons before that : 217-224-211 points. So no unreasonable to make that case

                          1. AuFeld
                            • 2 Years

                            Valid point. I do understand your case that his regression last season was based on an injury. I hope his injuries do not become a growing concern and he turns into an 'Arnie.'

                        so he's in your team I guess

                          14 days, 8 hours ago

                          Still too afraid to go without Sterling.... But might change, even go with three big hitters

                            I'm between Aguero and Kane...both have their own downsides

                      4. Would Ed Woodward
                          14 days, 8 hours ago

                          My worry would be that he seems to be so much less selfish than he used to be, I'd want the Kane that would constantly shoot from anywhere and not spray passes from his halfway line.

                            14 days, 8 hours ago

                            That is a worry, yes. But then we do have FT's

                          14 days, 8 hours ago

                          Problem is no one knows if he reverts, not much suggesting it.
                          I'm going Sterling because even when Kane scored 29 and assisted 7 Raheem has outscored that in the last two seasons in terms of fpl points

                          1. Pompel
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            14 days, 8 hours ago

                            But 1 mill price difference in Kane's favour now

                            1. Whazza
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                              • 7 Years
                              14 days, 8 hours ago

                              Rightly so, Sterling got 70 points more last season

                              1. Pompel
                                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                                14 days, 8 hours ago

                                Sterlign will probably score more this season also. But point still stands, that Kane will compare favourably with all midfielders if he gets back in the 200+ club, even without captaining.

                                1. Whazza
                                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                                  14 days, 8 hours ago

                                  I agree, however it's a big if. For me I can afford only one of them, so feel better starting with Sterling. He can be downgraded while Kane to Sterling would require a million

                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          14 days, 8 hours ago

                          Not too difficult to make a decent team with the three big hittes either:

                          Pope(Heaton?) 4.0
                          Robertson VVD Digne 4.5 4.0
                          Salah Sterling Perez Townsend 4.5
                          Kane King 4.5

                          What's primarily missing here is ofc City defense

                          1. Whazza

                            Very nice actually! Possibly just one of Perez and Townsend as they feel risky and another good def instead?

                              No Siggy is also the sacrifice you have to make

                                Exactly - Siggy is in my current team, this is a draft. But King to DCL could perhaps make up for that?

                                  Frees up only 0.5? Or what am I missing

                                      Oh well maybe.. Been reading they are looking for a striker though. They actually have a nice team, imagine if they could get Lukaku back

                          What’s the math on the 0.68?

                          Is it his points forecast at 210/38 games = 5.52 PPG / his price 11.0 = 0.5 PPG/mil?

                        Is 541 madness?

                        Ederson (4.0)
                        Robbo VVD Laporte Coleman Cathcart
                        Salah Sterling Siggy Fraser (4.5)

                          I feel like if you're gonna play 5 at the back then go all the way, don't play with Cathcart, get a Digne.

                            Yeah, I see what u mean but would mean losing Ederson, Siggy or Fraser...

                          If King doesn’t play then you only have 10 starters

                            yes, big risk of a formation with only 1 playing striker

                              there's absolutely no evidence to suggest they would stop playing with two strikers. it's not a big risk at all.

                        Finally found a use for FPL draft

                        I keep getting tempted into a big 6 at the back as a mid long term set and forget. I know though I’ll get pushed into losing it by wanting to make aggressive moves. Solution - get a draft bug back 6 and see hiow that runs.

                        I managed this. Not perfect but good enough!

                        Thoughts on this 4-3-3 team? Any glaring areas of weakness? Should I downgrade someone to improve bench?

                          Seems like a pretty well balanced squad.

                          Put off by the extra .5m to have a TAA or Robertson?

                          Origi is always tempting. I have no idea if he plays but may do at the start of the season whilst firmino is rested.

                          1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…

                            That's my thinking. I am not paying 7.0 for TAA, when there is Digne. 🙂

                              Thought I saw someone post that Mane and Firmino have 10 headed goals between them, and TAA takes corners for Liverpool?

                                14 days, 8 hours ago

                                True. But I have Mané, Firmino is away, and there must be balance. 🙂

                                  Indeed there must, I wish I felt as comfortable as you having McArthur and Origi as starting players.

                          Looks good.
                          Zinchenko, McArthur and Origi as risks which I'm sure you're aware of.

                          1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…

                            Zinchenko is an absolute cert imo, McArthur played more than 3000 minutes, so is nailed, and Firmino is confirmed away, so may not be fit in time. Origi is in contract negotiations, so they will want to tempt him. Perfect opportunity. 🙂

                            Thanks! 🙂

                          Very strong, though slightly risky with out Salah.
                          Would ditch Origi for a 4.5 and get Robertson or TAA - as per the current template.
                          Also, Pope/Heaton over Ryan ?

                            I won't do either of those, but thank you.

                            Imagine posting a goalie, who doesn't play?

                              Is Cicharito a good pick now since Arnautovic is off to pastures new?
                              Great value at 6.0?
                              Nice fixtures.
                              Or are West Ham likely to splash out on a striker that will put him down the pecking order again?

                          Nice team. Untested in Zinchenko myself. I’ll be watching with interest in preseason.
                          The only thing putting me off Kane is GW2.

                        Talksport saying Tzanzebe has just signed a new contract at Man U. Gutted as a Villa fan, but will be interested to see what he is priced at in the game. One to watch...

                              He can't be any worse than the rest of the CB's at Utd... Probably why they've locked him in!

                            How did he do last season? There's definitely gonna be a spot for the taking next to whichever CB we end up buying.

                              He stepped up a level last season and formed a really strong CB partnership with Mings. Solid pacey CB....

                            I think i would prefer sterling and salah or sterling and mane. Better rotation for captaincy and allows an extra pool defender

                          Any thoughts on my current team. Looking at other peoples I'm starting to feel a little light at the back.

                          Alison | Button
                          TAA | Digne | Adam Smith | Cathcart | Dunk

                          Vardy | King | Long

                          Any recommendations for 5/5.5m def?

                          Thanks!

                            Coleman, Maguire, Davies ?, Rose, Trippier, and Chillwell.

                            Spurs wingbacks' could be a guessing game.

                            Im not sure about kdb from the off. Maybe downgrade him and use the money to improve a defender

                              I think your bench is too strong.

                            Do we think Walker is better than any 5.5 defender in the game?

                            Struggling to find any 5.5 I like other than Coleman.

                              If Maguire goes to City he'll be in every team.

                              Trippier and Gomez also ones to monitor in preseason.

                              I think there are better £6m defenders then Walker.

                            Rondon at Everton or West Ham would go straight into my team.

                              Before you know his price?

                                Why..? He's never had a good scoring record and never nailed down a club.

                                13 days, 15 hours ago

                                Interestingly whilst his overall record does not seem hugely prolific at first glance (50 attacking returns in 140 premier league games)...

                                His recent record has been pretty solid (17 attacking returns in his last 26 premier league games)

                                Needs a kind price, but could be a very useful FPL asset if he maintains recent form and doesn’t come in too expensive

                                Hmm, never rated so never had him - which was a mistake last season. He'd be better than DCL, but I suspect he'd cost 7m plus, and I don't think I'd give him priority over King, Jota and Deulofeu.

                              Rashford

                              Is this the best Utd XI? Perhaps with Matic instead of one of the other pivots.

                                  Are there any glaring oversights? Lukaku if he stays, perhaps. Worrying times.

                                    Mayeb Axel at the back, and James over Martial

                                Smalling is ahead of Bailly, but expect a new centre back.

                                Lingard, Martial, Rashford is backed up by Mata, Sanchez, James, and Lukaku, so the squad depth isn't bad to be fair.

                                The funny thing about United is we dismiss those names are awful players, but Sanchez has been tearing up the Copa America this summer, Lukaku has a pretty decent record at United and Belgium, Rashford is regularly one of Englands best players.

                                  Disgracefully underachieving for their clubs. It’s a very good sqaud!

                                    That's what I'm saying, people in general look at names like Rashford and Lukaku and comment how terrible they are, the reality is they are good enough for most of the top sides in Europe.

                                  One of the teams to really look at during pre-season

                                    Definitely. Potentially some very good value Fantasy inclusions among them

                                    I prefer two forwards with Rashord and either James/Martial/Sanchez and then have Mata (with his creativity and work rate) right under with a diamond shaped midfield.

                                      Interesting. Have a personal preference for Lingard with Mata off the bench.

                                  Jota or Pérez? And why!

                                  (4-4-2 vs 4-3-3 btw, I know they are different positions!) 😉

                                    Tough choice. Jota better but not sure on forward and got europa too. I am going with perez.

                                    I like both in terms of value, so I have them both.

                                  Where exactly does Ayoze Perez fit in at Leicester.
                                  His best position is playing as a second striker.
                                  If Leicester line up 442 (below) then Perez will be gold.

                                  Vardy Perez
                                  Maddison Tielemans Ndidi Barnes

                                  However this would hinder the appeal of Maddison (playing wide) and Tielemans (playing deeper).

                                  They could line up 4231 but he would be competing with Maddison, Barnes, Gray, Albrighton and Ghezzal for an attacking midfield role. Or if they lineup 4141 he would be playing wide or deeper again with lots of competition.

                                  Due to this I believe Vardy is the only viable Leicester option from the off.

                                    As I wrote minutes ago, Brendan was tinkering to find his best formation at the tail end of last season. No doubt he'll use pre-season to continue the process to find how Perez best fits. At this moment in time we simply can't say - we need to monitor pre-season closely.
