How does Tielemans affect and compare to Leicester’s other FPL assets?

Leicester City’s permanent capture of Youri Tielemans (£6.5m) adds to the Foxes’ attractive options in Fantasy Premier League next season.

The Belgian midfielder, signed for a reported £40m from Monaco, impressed in a brief loan spell towards the end of 2018/19 and was a successful differential pick for those FPL bosses who backed him.

The central midfielder scored three goals and registered a further five assists in just 13 starts, averaging 4.8 FPL points per game – more than any of Leicester’s other Fantasy assets apart from Jamie Vardy (£9.0m).

You can read more about Tielemans’ history in our Scout Report.

The Foxes’ opening eight fixtures are a mixed bag, with Brendan Rodgers’ side facing five of last season’s top seven in the first two months of the campaign.

There are also matches against Sheffield United, Bournemouth and Newcastle United in that time, however.

For those wishing to back a Leicester asset from the off, there is a bit of a selection headache.

Ayoze Perez‘s (£6.5m) case for inclusion was heard in a Members’ article last week but in Tielemans and James Maddison (£7.0m) we also have two FPL midfielders who provided us with decent value for money in 2018/19.

In Vardy, we also have a premium forward who scored more goals than any other Premier League player in the final ten Gameweeks of last season.

This latest article will scrutinise the numbers behind Tielemans’ appearances for Leicester so far.

    Had KDB in the side for a while - love the idea of a City double in attack - but dropping him to Maddison enabled Cathcart -> TAA.

    That’s gotta be worth it, right?

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Just did my first draft in a week without KDB and probably happier without him just to get more balance. Might need some time to find his real form again, at least that's what I am hoping now.

    2. nisag17

      Yes. Probably. TAA will probably score similar to last season which will be tremendous return.

    So, how about this lot guys?

    Just go 5atb . Waiting if some gems to emerged then change it with two moves.

    Already plan Vardy and Tielemans to come for Wilson and Fraser.

      Sure about Murray getting regular gametime? Other than that, it looks set.

      1. Double Treble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Wait for pre season mate ...

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 4 days ago

      I’d have Ings ahead of Murray personally.

      Neat gamble on the double ups on Bournemouth and Everton. Neither especially convince me but they could be gold. I’m just not sure fixture runs are compelling for midranked sides and particularly at this time of year. Very easy to get pushed into a WC imo

      1. Double Treble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        I remember how someone said the samae when I want to double up Bou players at the early beginning last season.

        Then, we saw Fraser and Wilson is something else.

        I pick them because they show their qualities. More than that, the fixtures is good.

        What else do u expect from 100 millions? Double attacker from City like overrated KDB and Bernado Silva? They are pricey. KDB cheaper than last season but not have a good value.

        The best pick is of course mid table teams. I choose Everton and Bou, the reliable and proven in PL. Not double Aston Villa or Sheffield United.

        Why should wildcard when I can make two moves? I know u said that because delusional tactic of flexible formation. The fact is, formation can be adjust, the gems can be buy with only two transfers in 1 week. Save the early transfer, be patient. Do two transfers next week.

        1. Devo-McDuff
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 4 days ago

          If KDB stay fit he likely gets 200+ points, that's decent value to me.

          1. Double Treble
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 3 days ago

            You are right in term he can archieve 200+ points but thats a big if with :

            1. he just comeback from injury. Can get another injury if Pep doesnt monitor his minutes.

            2. As a good couch, I believe KDB minutes will be managed carefully. It will effect his fantasy points.

            3. Pep even have another season from Dilva (his performance still good) and increasing performance from Bilva. Have Foden too. A lot coverage for KDB. A good squad depth.

            4. Well, we know Pep always rotate his players. Maybe he will do the same for KDB after his injury record.

            KDB's ppm before last season around 5.5-5.7. I can say many players include defenders can archieve that now with lower price.

            TAA 7.0 in price
            and have 6.4 ppm

            Robbo 5.9
            Mendy 5.9
            Zinc around that too
            VVD 5.5
            Wilson 5.6

            Even Fraser at 4.8 ppm can have better value than KDB.

    1. pingissimus

      4 months, 4 days ago

      Not sure about the balance of funds in midfield but this looks good to me as a starting point for the season.

      The auto selection of Sterling around here seems a bit odd to me.

      I’d also consider Auba over Kane in the first two weeks.

  6. RedWolf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Best forward 7m or under?

    Already have King

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years

      I like Deulofeu

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year

      Deulofeu
      Wood

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Wood might be compromised by the arrival of JRod.
        The trio of 6.5s are King, Deulofeu and jota. All good.

  7. NUFCAndrew
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    Is Vardy essential?

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Depends. If you've got Salah and Sterling, you really can't afford a 10m+ striker; hence Vardy is the next best thing.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Depends on definition of essential - by the time GW38 rolls around You could easily go back & pick a team to finish OR #1 that wouldn’t have him in it

      But his record since Puel was sacked suggests he’s been a man on a mission ever since

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 4 days ago

      No

      But he’s very tasty as the fixtures should suit him with defences not set up to smother. But the fixtures are still tough and Kane and the forgotten Auba could well outdo him

      He could trigger a number of early WCs if he hits with lots of teams being unable to reach him with no premium spot.

      He’s tricky as with all those mids he’ll be very hard to cover by getting in his regular assistant,

    4. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Yeah. Guaranteed 5m+ ranking without him.

    5. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 2 Years

      It's him or Kane for me

    6. Make Arrows Green Again

      Absolutely not

    Morning! A or B please?

    Hey guys, 0.5 itb, where would you use it?

    Ryan (4.0)
    Digne, Robertson, Laporte (4.0, 4.0)
    Milli, Salah, Siggy, Perez, Sterling
    King, Deuloufeu (4.5)

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      One of the defs to a 4.5, A.Smith?

    2. KUNingas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Playing 4.5 def

    3. BilalM
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      What is that front line? no recognised striker. Need at least one

  10. KUNingas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    A) Vardy, KDB, Dendoncker
    B) Deulofeu, KDB, Zaha
    C) Deulofeu, Sterling, Dendocker

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      This is really difficult. Part of me says A but C if you only have Salah for captain

      1. KUNingas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah Salah is my only option for captain currently. Currently on B, the best thing about B is that Zaha can be transferred to any 7.0 mid (Willian, Felipe, Mkhi) easily, if someone will hit on form.

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 4 days ago

          I’d be really tempted by A.

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          Hmm, maybe one could argue Vardy is a good captain option too

          1. KUNingas
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            Hard to captain according to fixtures as Vardy scores against big ones.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 2 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              True

    Why is batsman not listed for Chelsea?

    1. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 4 days ago

      same can be said for Zouma

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Was out on loan I guess.

      Here’s hoping he gets sent out again. A really tasty FPL asset imo if he’s at a midranked side where he’d be tied on. Much trickier at Chelsea

      1. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        If he stays, surely he's a starter in a youthful Lampard side, over Giroud. Who else have they got?

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 4 days ago

          Abrahams.

          But it’s the rotation risk for me - he wouldn’t fall into the tied on category. He even lost his spot - briefly - to Benteke last time!!!

          1. bigbudgie
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

    So WestHam seems to miss out on Haller, now looking to Higuain? Typical.

    1. pingissimus

      Surely Rondon is a natural fit. Any talk of that?

      1. The 5% Team

        I agree, but haven't seen his name in any transfer rumours lately

    1. BilalM

      Think you should get either Jimenez or Jota instead of King.
      who are your subs

      1. Chelsea91
        • 1 Year

        my sub Button Dendonker,Kante,Kelly mate

      2. farmerfat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        I disagree. King has much stronger fixtures to start with. Would keep King for the first 6 and change to Jota later on

        1. Chelsea91
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 4 days ago

          yes, he on penalty too mate , i am thinking to fit in tielemens , but i need to sacrifice somewhere else.

    2. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 4 days ago

      for some reason not a fan of City defense double up.
      would do Laporte > Azpi, Milli > 6.5 mid and then upgrade Mane to Salah

      1. Chelsea91
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Do you think Salah more nailed than Mane? I confuse to choose between salah and mane mate.

        1. bigbudgie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          Crikey. They're both nailed mate

          1. Chelsea91
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 4 days ago

            I was on salah first , than i change to Mane seems Mane play more in the Box.

        2. Kopkloppers

          1. Chelsea91
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 4 days ago

            Mane is consistent than salah , do you agree?

            1. Kopkloppers
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years

              Salah gets points home and away. So at those prices Salah reliable captain pick.

  14. BilalM
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    RMT Please. This year prices are outlandish. So difficult to get a good balance.

    Heaton / McCarthy
    Robbo / Digne / Walker / Dunk / Mings
    Salah / Sterling / Milivojevic / Noble / Hayden
    Lacazette / Jota / DCL

    1. Is McCarthy the Southampton no1?
    2. Apart from Salah, Sterling midfield is nothing special
    3. Can't think of a strategy up top

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      I think starting with laca is a big risk. He is not nailed. Vardy will be a better choice until we know where Emery is at.
      I feel midfield is too weak

    2. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 4 days ago

      1. Gunn apparently
      2.3. not a fan of 3 strikers, would downgrade DCL and upgrade a midfielder.

      1. farmerfat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Good advice

  15. farmerfat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    Advice is much appreciated friends:

    Really stuck with this whole Vardy dilemma like many others.

    Team a ( no Vardy)
    Ryan
    TAA Robbo Digne Chilwell
    Fraser Salah Sterling Siggy
    Deu king

    Team b (Vardy)
    TAA VVD Digne (4.5)
    Brooks Salah Sterling Siggy
    King Vardy

    I cant help but feel A is the stronger team..

    Suggestions welcome.

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Prefer B myself.

      Not sure what Chilwell adds. The Leicester defence doesn’t feel good with that fixture run. The only short term Leicester for me would be Vardy as he’s the one who thrives against top 6. Whichever way the midfield falls it’s really hard to pick one who’ll excel.

      If you’re unsure about Vardy and prepared to go 4.5 at the back you could reshuffle a bit to get KdB ahead of Siggy.

      1. farmerfat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Haha yes that was my other dilemma. Originally had KDB over Siggy but Siggys fixtures are really good so can swap him out around gw6-7. Thanks for the advice

    2. scubasmithy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Prefer a, but agree I'm not a fan of chilwell,. Also maybe DCL instead of Deu?

      Would allow for a city defender

    3. That TV angle at Highbury
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      I also find it difficult. But with so much value in 6-6.5 for forwards, I find it be a good bet to go with A to have more funds to spend other places in your team. And you could easily change Deulo to someone else if he doesn’t deliver.

    I have seen a lot of Walker Zinchenko Trippier on here. Why?

      Laporte will be save and Ederson too

        Why go for any of those 3? Walker no Attacking points and the other 2 rotation risk

          Yes, walker might get injured , laporte is the perfect one

    Second draft of the team now ready. Got out Kane to get a more balanced team. Thoughts?

    Ederson / Buttom
    TAA Robbo Digne Coleman / Kelly
    Salah Sterling Zaha Maddi / Dendo
    Jota King / Xande Silva

      Keeper almost freudien slip?
      Kelly nailed?
      Zaha unsettled?
      Maddi rotation?
      Jota Euros

      4 players too much for GW1

    I have a back 6 of
    Lloris
    Alonso Laporte Digne TAA Robbo
    It does cost me a big hitter but value in the backs is far superior.
    Alonso is a wait and see and I am thinking I could get Rico at 4 mil and upgrade Wilson to Kane.
    It looks a no brainer, especially looking at balance but I do believe outside of Salah who will be C every week, this is the 1st season to go 5 at the back.
    The keeper is another story. Last 3 years 145,144, 143. Massive annual improvements. But this return is fine for 5.5

    Anyone else thinking the same.
