Join our Sky Sports Fantasy Football league

Sky Sports Fantasy Football has launched for the 2019/20 season.

We have set up our usual free-to-all Sky league ahead of the new campaign and you can join us by entering the following pin: 8421088.

Tomorrow we’ll have our first proper Sky article of the summer covering the basics of the game before we delve into more detail in the coming weeks.

There are several differences with Fantasy Premier League, with Sky not being a squad-based game (i.e. you only have to select 11 players on a given Gameweek), transfers allowed between Gamedays and more rewards on the equivalent bonus system for shots on target, tackles and completed passes.

Jorginho (£9.8m), for example, was among the ten highest-scoring midfielders in Sky last season mainly thanks to the bonus points he picked up for passing.

We’ll elaborate more on the Sky game in our ‘How to Play’ article tomorrow.

    Too complicated for me

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Plus I don’t like having the conflict of interest that having different players in different games brings

      1. The 5% Team
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 days ago

        yup, same here

      2. Marmalade Forest
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Pick as many of the same players as possible?

        Always enter the Sky game. Always a ghost by GW3.

            I am in the game already it's just not accepting me to join the League for Sky Sports.

    Sky Ff doesn't seem to have the option to keep your team private this year (i.e. at the moment everyone can see each others team!) or am i missing something?

      Settings icon bottom right of my team page.

  4. Reckoner.
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Who's everyone favorite:

    1. Goalkeeper picks @ 4.5, 9.0 rotation pair?

    2. Defender picks @ 4.5?

    3. Midfield picks @ 6.5 or under?

    1. Reckoner.
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I'm currently on:

      1. Heaton & Ryan

      2. Diop, Bednarek & Aarons

      3. Brooks & Perez

    2. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      1. Heaton and who ever will be Villa number one
      2. CTaylor, Targett, Diop
      3. Brooks, Tielemans, Perez, Yarmelenko, JWP

      1. Sahil.....
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Heaton might become villas new number one ...

    3. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      1. Personally on set and forget, but I'd go Steer/Pope.

      2. Tough crowd, but probably
      Matty Targett on a punt. Elmo is good too.

      3. Tielemans crininally underpriced.
      Moutinho I feel is severely overlooked at the 5.5m price. The guy creates chances for fun.
      Djenepo at 5.5m as a raiding winger at Southampton ks one to watch in preseason.
      Brooks is a trap.

      1. MosF94
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Interesting - I think Brooks could be a great option, and Tielemans will be a trap (vastly out-performed his underlying stats last year)

    4. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      1. Burnley/Brighton. Hopefully Burnley/Villa if Heaton moves.

      2. Diop, Targett and Dunk.

      3. Perez or Youri.

    5. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      1. Keep an eye on Burnley. If Heaton goes to AVL he could rotate with Pope. Ryan obviously. Maybe Gunn??

      2. Very slim pickings. I've currently got Adam Smith and Balbuena which should give you some idea of the quality.

      3. Perez/Tielemans probably.

    6. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Heaton/Pope

      Diop, Cathcart, O'Connell (SHU)

      Westwood, Moutinho, Jorginho, Noble, Brooks. One of Freeman or Norwood will come good for Sheffield United.

  5. Super Frank
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Lloris (4.0)
    TAA - VVD - Digne - Dunk/Rico
    Salah - Rich - Zaha - Maddy (Dendo)
    Kane - King (Greenwood)

    1.5 ITB to get anyone who starts firing (Most likely Dunk/Rico > City Def. ahead of GW4)
    Feedback appreciated

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      One of the more balanced teams I've seen. I like it.
      Dono about Rich though, just coming back from Copa and hes a bit of a loose cannon.

      1. Super Frank
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks for your feedback, I may get Siggy to start the season then switch to Rich later on

  6. farmerfat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Is Siggy as important as people are making him out to be ? I feel he is ruining my team :p

    1. Tomerick
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      If you feel that way you don’t deserve him.

      1. farmerfat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        I just want green arrows

        1. Tomerick
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Siggy is the caretaker of the green arrows.

    2. Kanchelskis
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      In my view yes: Everton looked good at the end of last year; great fixtures; Siggy is established FPL royalty

    3. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Nailed on with great fixtures, set pieces and nicely priced. What’s not to love?

      1. farmerfat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        The fact that I cant afford him and Vardy without butchering my team 🙁

        1. Gregor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Ah, good choice of midfielders to pick from to cover the Leicester attack though.

        2. tbeans22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          I've have both but it means going without Sterling or Salah (I have Salah). Fit him in too and yeah, the rest of the bunch looks ugly. Siggy and Vardy or Sterling and a bench fodder FWD.

    4. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I prefer Richarlison although that is an unpopular opinion round these parts.

  7. cpo001
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Help me out guys!

    A) Dunk and Jimenez
    B) Coleman and King

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      B all day

    2. Kanchelskis
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Not even close.

  8. Sessegnon Blanc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Which team looks stronger (A or B), please?

    Ryan (Button)
    Vvd Taa Laporte xxx (Kelly)
    Salah Tielemans xxx xxx (Dendoncker)
    Vardy King (Wickham)

    (A) Coleman, Sterling, Brooks 0.0 ITB
    (B) Digne, KdB, Siggy 0.5 ITB

    Any feedback (good or bad) very much welcomed! Many thanks!

    1. Kanchelskis
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      KDB a bit punty, but if he starts well then B.

    2. Marmalade Forest
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      The Sky game doesn’t have subs

  9. Differential (c)
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    How Youri has stayed at £6.5m is mad. Any one with an inch of faith in the eye test can see what a bargain that is. This is a guy who started for Anderlecht in the CL when he was 16. Liberated and completed that Leicester midfield the moment he came in. No question on nailedness or ability to generate FPL output.
    And somehow someone in FPL towers thought 6.5m was the right price. Okaaayyyy.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Pretty much essential at that price.

      1. Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Sarcasm? Or are you considering him too

      2. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Exactly, pretty much sums it all up. Previously had a three striker lineup with Jota, but now that Youri is 6.5, Jota's dropped like a hot pan. FPL has dropped a clanger there.

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          If you keep him most of the season, I'll be surprised.

    2. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Silly stat obsessors. At least it is making everyone else too wary so more gains for us

      1. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        3 G 5 A when he only played 13 league games and Rodgers was just implementing his system. Stats obssesors miss out on the stuff that you need the eye test to really appreciate.

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Do you want an early Leicester double up? Or are you prepared to pick him on his own?

      My feeling is that it is specifically Vardy who is the top 6 killer and the undercard only come into play when fixtures turn.

      1. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Tielemans is my sole Foxes asset. Vardy is someone I want, but no cash 🙁

        1. The Big Fella
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Exactly. My comment just before yours says the same thing.

    4. The Big Fella
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I can't decide between him and Vardy - if I have Vardy then I can't get Youri unless I sell Siggy (or Salah or Sterling) which I am not prepared to do. Having Youri means I can have 3 mid-priced strikers though instead of Vardy and Wilson plus Greenwood.

    5. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      He was £6m last season.

      I think I’d prefer Maddison if they were the same price and there’s Perez in the mix now as well so I like that they’ve priced him competitively.

    6. Valar(Keith)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      It all started when they priced maddison as the main set piece taker in the side at just 7. And then they opened the game super early as compared to usual and couldn't reprice /classify perez( And then They went and underpriced Siggurdson at 8 million even though he is fpl royalty) They set a deadly precedent with all of that and were forced into pricing tielemans at 6.5. Tbh I wouldn't have batted an eyelid if siggy was 9, Maddison was 8 and perez, tielemans were 7.5. Severely underpriced but good for us

    7. Tomerick
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      In comparison to Maddison at 7.0 I don’t think they could justify making Tielemans the same price.

      No doubt he is a great player and very important to the team but Maddison outclasses in my eyes and based on the data also.

  10. The Big Fella
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    How much are we expecting Tammy to be and are we expecting him to play ahead of Giroud?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Shhhhh don’t give anything away to the people on here who price him. I expect him to never play a game, only Cup games so anything higher than 4.5m would be ridiculous, will have nothing to do with FPL, giroud 110% the main man

      1. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        He genuinely may not. I can't see Giroud being happy sitting on the bench as the only senior striker at the club. He may push for a leave too if he is no guaranteed minutes which Chelsea may not want. May turn out to be a case of Lamps roulette.

        1. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          😉

    2. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      same price as Giroud

      1. The 5% Team
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 days ago

        oops 🙂

      2. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Can't see it!

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      6.5 or possibly 7.0

    4. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      £7m. I think it’ll be Tammy or Bats.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        I hope it is 6 or 6.5m hahaha

  11. Dr. Agabuse
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Kodija
    Ritchie

    Penaltytakers for 5.5

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Jorginho should be one for 5. Kodjia won’t start unless Wesley/El Ghazi are injured

    2. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Ignore Kodjia, he'll be on the bench most of the time.

  12. Sahil.....
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    I think butshuayi will start more matches

  13. avfc82

    3 months, 12 days ago

    West Ham's line up for today's friendly for anyone interested...

    Roberto, Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Johnson, Sanchez, Noble, Lanzini, Snodgrass, F. Anderson, Antonio

    Reid, Yarmolenko and Chicharito all on the bench.

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Antonio could be huge then omg

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Johnson one to watch at 4m, that left back spot is there for the taking if he impresses again. Did well when he played last year

    2. Sahil.....
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      They will sign a striker and snodgrass will be a sub

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Most likely yeah, but we are West Ham and i’d Be surprised if we didn’t sign one. Antonio in that case will be essential

        1. Sahil.....
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          They were keen on gomez and were ready to pay upto 45 milion according to sky....so they will sign someone for sure

          1. Ramboros
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Gomez is a different class to most strikers that would be available for them. They need to sign a striker that would be better than Yarmolenko, Antonio and Chicharito. I doubt they will throw money around for anyone.

          2. Ask Yourself
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            We offered to pay that over 3 years. Our owners are tight as

      2. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Hasn't WHU already indicated they won't be signing a top striker?

  14. Rosy Lee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Thourghts guys, I guess pretty much on the template side?

    Ryan
    TAA Robbo Digne Laporte
    Salah DeBruyne Sigurdsson Perez
    King Vardy

    Button Kelly Dendoncker Wickham

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Yes very template. All you need to do now is ask

      A) Vardy and KDB
      B) Deulofeu and Stwrling.

      All good though.

      1. Rosy Lee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Thats my worry going without Sterling, to be honest did not think of that combination (B), got me thinking now.
        Thanks

    Vardy > Siggy?

    1. Limited & Mediocre Mana…

      Different price, different position

  16. dbeck
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Felipe Anderson anyone? less of a punt then Yarmelenko and we know he is quality, but will it convert to fpl points this season?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      You can do worse for 7m. West Ham mids will offer a lot of value this year and it will be a case of having the right ones at the right times

      1. Tomerick
        • 5 Years

        The problem is it’s hard to tell which one is the one to get and when. In my view it is best to keep an eye on West Ham and pounce when someone establishes them self.

    2. Wheato182
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      One i'm monitoring, not overly sold on Zaha who i currently have.

    3. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I'm looking at both but West Ham don't convince. Are they going to be better or worse this season?

    4. The Big Fella
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Went shite 2nd half of last season though

  17. Siggy in the Middle
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    While RLC is out, could Barkley be a great option as the number 10? Mount would be his only competition wouldn't be?

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Lamps said he wants CHO to play through the middle so will be interesting

    2. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Yeah there's been talk of Mount if a 4231 is used, which I expect will become the first choice formation.

      Could also be a 433 much like last season though, where Kovacic might eat some minutes.

      I'd prefer to wait and see honestly

    3. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Hmm, depends on what formation he settles on I suppose.

  18. Wheato182
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Any reason Richarlison aint getting more love over Siggy on here? has started the previous 2 seasons explosively...

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Bit of a loose cannon.
      Can be explosive but less consistent than Siggy. Loves cards too

    2. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Siggy loved on here, Rich hated. I like Rich myself - on the fringes of the Brazil team and always starts seasons well.

      1. Wheato182
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Siggy flatters to deceive, will chip away with the odd assist/goal but my money would be on Richarlison outscoring him in the first few games before doing his usual 5-6 game disappearing act - where Siggy will make up the ground on him.

    3. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I was expecting Richy to come in cheaper than Siggy, I think the set pieces just edges it for me.

      1. Wheato182
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Fair enough, I certainly think Siggy is a good option i'm just surprised that most have overlooked Richarlison, thought it might be a bit closer.

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          setpieces wins it for me

    4. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Rich has been in my team since Draft 1 and ain't moving

    5. Dthinger
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Siggurdson outscored him by nearly 30 points despite Richarlisson playing as a Striker for a big chunk of the season. That could be a reason

      1. Wheato182
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Over the course of the season I expect Siggy to outscore him, mainly due to Richarlison's inconsistency.

        My point was Richarlison has started the past 2 seasons exceptionally well and was probably in the top 5 for the first few weeks before faltering off.

        Bar a strange turn of events where Everton are challenging for top 6 nobody is keeping their assets long term.

    6. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Both are too expensive for me. Especially if you have Salah and Sterling and 3 premium defenders (which I'd strongly advise).

      Digne will score just as well if not better than them both this season and IMO.

      1. Wheato182
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        You think Digne is worth the 0.5 over Coleman?

        1. Nomar
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Easily

  19. RECKLESS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    With Fahrmann to Norwich on loan confirmed, who will be first choice GK him or Krul? Expecting many save pts

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      They’ve gone for Krul in the Team News section.

      1. Dthinger
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        well, then, that's settled.

    2. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Hmmm I still would prefer Heaton/Pope, Ryan

      1. Gregor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        This.

  20. Jammydodger2018
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Here’s my team with some options to switch if players under perform

    Ryan

    VVD Robbo Coleman Ake

    Zaha Salah KDB Fraser Maddison

    Kane

    I’m thinking if KDB isn’t performing after a couple of weeks then I can bring in Son for the same price.

    Also plenty of mid priced mids to swap to if form is not there in Fraser, Zaha or Maddi

    Also Kane can swap to Auba.

    Hoping a 4.5m defender gem comes along so I can upgrade Coleman

    Ryan is my only area I’m really stuck with.

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      If KDB isn’t performing though then surely you’ll be wanting some other Man City attacking coverage?

      1. Jammydodger2018
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 days ago

        I dunno if I do, Peps rotation does my head in. I could do KDB to Sterling and Kane to Wilson i guess

        1. Gregor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          I think you’ve gotta cover the City attack or they’ll cause you some serious damage if they start cutting loose. Just pick one, stick with it and accept they might get the odd rest. I’d get Sterling.

  21. The Big Fella
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    What are everybody's opinions on B'mouth? I think King is a trap. I think Wilson is good but the team as a whole are maybe too inconsistent for me to seriously debate Wilson at £8m but they have such nice fixtures that I want somebody from the team. Fraser is a tad too much for me. Thoughts?

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I think King is a chance worth taking given his price, fixtures and penalties.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah but I seem to remember getting him or wanting him last year too and being disappointed.

        1. Gregor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Can’t dwell on that, you could not get him this year and be disappointed if he fires.

    2. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      king is better than most 6.5m fwds.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah perhaps but you could take a cheaper striker and use the money to upgrade another or a midfielder.

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          cheaper than 6.5m? There are none.(that are not crap)

          Anything less than 6.5m it's better to get a def @ same price.

          1. The Big Fella
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Yeah that's what I am saying. I could go Greenwood etc. and just use the extra 2m elsewhere to get more value. Him being the best of that category doesn't mean King is a good pick in absolute terms

          2. Kopkloppers
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            King has scored at a higher points per minute than Zaha over the last 3 seasons.

    3. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I think King is fair enough.

      Brooks?

      1. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Bigger trap than King IMO

        1. IrishRed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Why?

    4. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Fraser is the one to get.

      King's appeal is pens but Wilson will still outscore him and Fraser pretty much supplies all Wilson's bullets

      1. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah I really want Wilson but I also want Siggy, Salah, Sterling and Vardy. Fraser is an option but not sure how I would get him in.

        1. Nomar
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          I have all of them except Siggy.

          You can't have them all and I feel Digne will more than compensate for Siggy or Rich.

          I've gone for Fraser too. Vardy and Ings are my strikers right now.

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 12 days ago

            was reading saints forum earlier and they seem to hate ings, written him off after injuries

    5. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      He should be ok but I wouldn’t want him as my only striker as many seem to have

    6. Dthinger
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Same. The last two seasons I've started with King and regretted it. so I'll probably do that again. Wilson at 8M just seems to expensive and I don't think Fraser will have another season like the last one. I'm expecting their prices will drop in the first five GWs and then I might consider them.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        With those fixtrures, I am expecting some of them to go up. The question is, whose will go up and whose will go down?

    7. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I can see why many will invest, but I'm staying clear. They really struggled to score at home towards the end of the season (late set piece goal vs 9 man Spurs, couldn't score past Fulham, 1 against Burnley which was a Barnes OG...) and I have a feeling Sheffield United will surprise them GW1. Then its avl/MCI/lei/EVE.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah inconsistent as I said but I still rate Wilson and I just feel that if they do score in those matches, they will come from Wilson

    8. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      King and Fraser not leaving my team for the first few game weeks. Great value

    9. Goodish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Fraser is the perfect player to start with imo. Nailed, proven performer for a decent team with good fixtures and priced slightly more than other mid-priced midfielders, allowing for an easy switch without having to worry about price rises/falls.

      King is the best 6.5 million striker.

      Wilson is priced too closely to Vardy for me. Every time I put him in I feel like I should find the extra million for Vardy, who could easily hit 200 points this season, going by his end of season form and his total points tally.

      Brooks is 0.5 more expensive than I would want if considering him as a long-term option but he's worth considering early on if you have a way to transition him to a Chelsea/West Ham/Leicester mid.

      Defence, I'm looking at A Smith to rotate in and out of my team until my early wildcard but I understand other people's reservations about that.

      1. The 5% Team
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 days ago

        totally agree with this...but no defense for me

        1. Dthinger
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          I've got Ake in my squad at the moment, but not sure he'll stay there.

    10. Dthinger
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Now I'm considering both Wilson and King. Would that be too much?

  22. The 5% Team
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Fraser for me...and have a 6.5 striker slot, might become King

    Even if Fraser scores 20-25 points less than last season, he would still be great value at his new price

    1. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      reply fail

  23. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Aguero or Kane?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Aguero

    2. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Kane is nailed and £1m cheaper

      1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah I could really use that £1m elsewhere....

      2. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        So is Aguero. We had this debate last season. Aguero will play 60 minutes every game

        1. Wild Rover
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Jesus looks more of a threat this year

          1. UnitedFan
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            This.

    3. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Neither.

      Both too expensive and premium strikers are a money pit.

      Invest it will in premium mids and defenders and go for mid priced value strikers instead.

    4. Goodish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Kane

    5. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      auba

  24. Jacky boy

      Just be aware that City are getting linked with a new right back.

      1. Nomar
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Ederson or Laporte or don't bother, innit?

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years

          Those certainly look the safest.

      2. Jacky boy

        Mendy/stones/zinch...

          I cant sleep without a city attacker.

          1. Jacky boy
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            I don't rate kdb
            It's sterling or not
            Which I trust kane more as a captain and I really really like spurs' fixtures

            1. Christina.

              get both. sacrifice defence.

                • 3 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                Then I should sacrifice vardy too

                  • 9 Years

                  yep something needs to give.

                  Perez/Tielemans + Kane or
                  Moura + Vardy

                  That sort of thing.

    2. Sahil.....

      Pure template

  25. Jimmy Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Ryan
    Laporte - Digne - Robbo
    Salah - KDB - Siggy - McGinn - Brooks
    Auba - Deulofeu

    Fodder - Fodder - Fodder - Fodder

    How's it looking? Gone with some of the obvious picks in defence and midfield but planning to punt on a couple of options up front who aren't so popular on here

    1. The Big Fella
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I think Brooks is a trap. First team I have seen with Auba though but I don't like the surprise team selections at Arsenal.

      1. Jimmy Boy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Fraser and Wilson a tad too expensive for me, plenty of options to consider in Brooks' price range so may end up just going Bournemouthless if I decide against having him

  26. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    I'm sure nobody is as lame as me to watch it - but there's a stream of a West Ham pre-season game now on their fb page.
    Another tab up for the cricket obviously 🙂

    1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Carlos Sanchez goal machine (1-0). Who'd have thought it?

  27. The Big Fella
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Pope or Ryan? Pope purported to be new 1st choice at Burnley and was mint 2 seasons ago but is obviously a year older now. Ryan has some nice fixtures, gets save points and is a good keeper plus Button is my 2nd keeper so I will always be guaranteed somebody to play. However, I don't know how the new manager will set them up.

    1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Pope is only 27, being a year older is a good thing if anything.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Really?! I thought he was in his early 30s. Not sure why I thought that. Ok, still a year without first team football though

        1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          I'd take him over Ryan

    2. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I think whoever the Burnley goalkeeper turns out to be could be gold this season.

      Unless it’s Joe Hart.

      1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
        • 4 Years

        This

    3. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      • 4 Years

        Nah! Set and forget for a keeper. I'd rather use the 0.5 elsewhere

      I'll be keeping an eye on Andone @ 5m to see if Potter fancies him. Maybe Long.
      Probably best off just get Greenwood, stick him 3rd on the bench and spend the extra .5 on your first 11
