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?

        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.

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

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

      3. pingissimus

        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
          • 3 Years
          8 days, 8 hours 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
              8 days, 13 mins ago

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

              1. Double Treble
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                7 days, 19 hours 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.

          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.

            Deulofeu
            Wood

              8 days, 14 hours ago

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

        3. NUFCAndrew
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Is Vardy essential?

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            8 days, 14 hours 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
            8 days, 13 hours 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
            8 days, 13 hours 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,

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

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 2 Years
            8 days, 13 hours 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
              8 days, 13 hours 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
                8 days, 13 hours ago

                I’d be really tempted by A.

                8 days, 13 hours ago

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

                  • 3 Years
                  8 days, 13 hours ago

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

                  1. KAPTAIN KANE
                    • 2 Years

            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
              • 4 Years
              8 days, 13 hours 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
                8 days, 13 hours 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!!!

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

                  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

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

                        Crikey. They're both nailed mate

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

                              Mane is consistent than salah , do you agree?

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

                      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

                        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

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

                      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.

                        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.

                          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

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

                        Would allow for a city defender

                        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.

                      You know things are desperate at Newcastle when they offer Sam Allardyce the managers job, and he turns it down....

                      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

                            Kelly nailed?
                            Zaha unsettled?
                            Maddi rotation?

                          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.
