  1. Salah plus who for you?

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Salah + Sterling means you almost certainly have to go for 6.5s upfront, unless you kill other areas of your team

    Salah + Aguero/Kane is better for team balance, but no Sterling could seriously come back to bite you

    Salah + KDB allows you to spread funds out better. But can KDB stay fit & keep up with the likes of Sterling & Aguero.

    This seems to be what most managers are deciding

    1. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I'm quite content with Salah + Sterling.

      I won't fall behind the majority of managers early on

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

        Gone the KDB route. Sterling will inevitably score more when he plays but cameos stop one from making him captained. If KDB says he is fit he will be first on the teamsheet. 2 Sterling cameos in 10 will even things out and a spare 2.5 mil ITB. I stress this is EARLY DAYS!

      2. asquishypotato
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        2 months, 5 days ago

        Salah and Sterling have been pretty consistent with king and Giroud since my first draft,

        Every now again I look at KDB and Vardy, but the Chelsea value is very tempting.

      I think mid-price strikers is the way to go.

      1. Differential (c)
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Mid-price, like who? Vardy bracket?

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

          Na, can’t really afford a decent team with Salah, Sterling and Vardy.

          £6.5m strikers up front and settle on one of Perez/Tielemanns/Maddison to cover the Leicester attack.

          1. ElliotJHP
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            You defo can.

            Ederson
            Trent Van Dijk Digne Diop
            Perez Sterling Salah
            Jota Vardy King

            Pretty decent side if you ask me?

            1. Cilly Bonnolly
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Bench?

              1. ElliotJHP
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Two playing 4.5s in dendoncker and whoever emerges as a decent second option.

                Dendoncker had a great end of season and is a fine first choice sub

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

              I know he is 4.5 but Diop? He does not even good returns for a 4.5. Also your bench if Diop plays week 1?

              1. ElliotJHP
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Haha I agree it's uninspiring it's more lklely to be O Connell from Sheffield United who I think could be an okay shout.

                Hopefully a 4.5 option emerges for this to work aye

            3. OneMan
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Good team, when do you plan to wildcard ?

        2. The MadJW
            2 months, 5 days ago

            You'll be kicking yourselves when Kane bags a brace v Villa and your mid price forward shoot blanks

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

              Or I could be kicking myself if Sterling gets a brace at West Ham, can’t have them all.

              1. ElliotJHP
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Exactly, I'm still weighing up Kane.

                It's either

                A) Kane KDB Robbo

                Or

                B) Vardy Sterling Virgil

                For me atm

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

                  Quite like your Vardy team tbh. Could even go with the Burnley keeper to upgrade Diop.

      2. Differential (c)
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Very true. Currently on Salah+KdB. If (big IF) KdB stays fit, i think he can keep up with Sterling over the course of the season.

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

          Will you captain him though?

          1. Differential (c)
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Therein lies the question haha. Have a draft that can get Salah+KdB+Auba as another captaincy option.

            Kepa
            TAA Walker Digne Holebas
            Salah deBruyne Sigurdsson Tielemans
            Aubameyang Adams

            GW1 Salah(c)
            GW2 Auba (c)
            GW3 Auba->Kane(c)
            GW4 Salah

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

              Auba could be a tidy differential for sure.

            2. Sir EFO
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Very similar to mine, I have King in attack and Jorjinho, Noble, McGoldrick to rotate 2 from 3

        2. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          KdB doesn't have to keep up. For a saving of 2.5m he can be 40 points behind and still be better value.

          You can still get a very nice squad with Salah, Sterling and Vardy - don't have to have a max 6.5 striker.

          1. Differential (c)
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            There's that too. That 2.5m can go a LONG way in improving other areas of the pitch as well.

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

        B.Silva gonna outscore Sterling first 3GW's πŸ™‚

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

          Bilva looks a great price, could be the best value of the lot.

        2. Pieterke30
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I hope Bernardo plays as the right wing attacker in the first few GWs at least, as Mahrez wont have had a preseason.

          But ofc Sterling could play there with Sané on the left...

      4. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Salah doesn't have to keep up with Sterling and Aguero, he's much cheaper

        1. Wild Rover
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          *KDB

          Wake up man! πŸ˜€

      5. Pukki Party
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Currently on Salah KDB Kane, wouldn't have Kane over Sterling without having either Auba or Kane.

        I've also had a few drafts with Sterling KDB double up.

        1. Pukki Party
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Wouldn't have Kane/Auba over Sterling without having KDB.*

      6. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Kill other areas of your team or 6.5?

        Vardy up top gives plenty of funds elsewhere with a decent balance.

      7. Hedge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Currently on Salah + KDB.

        I expect Sterling to outscore KDB but not by 2.5m worth

        1. Cube
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          How do 2.5m worth of points?

          1. Cube
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            *you calculate

          2. AuFeld
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            You don't. Hedge is stating that KDB is great value for his price and the $2.5m is better spent elsewhere other then Sterling.

          3. dinamika
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            KDB + vardy or Sterling + digne...which combo will give you more points?

            1. Cube
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              I will pick Sterling + Digne..So what's your point?

            2. AuFeld
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Both offer similar minutes per point. Probably Sterling + Digne as long as you captain Sterling.

      8. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 5 days ago

        I wouldn’t be confident that KDB is going to kick off with regular points - it’s a risk pick if instead of sterling or Aguero imo (pre season may change that tho)

        I think sterling will match salah this year

      9. fantasyfog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        all about weighing up the value in team with sterling or without, I feel theres better value without especially with Kdb price, my choice is between sterling, or Kdb Bilva and a 5.5 def instead

      10. PUMPKINHEAD
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        At moment I can't see past sterling. Kane is tempting but it's the Villa game that does it. Thing is most will captain Salah that gw anyway so it makes it easier to live with

        Any one not even considering Salah needs to find a new game to play imo πŸ˜‰

        I think ppl are forgetting that son is back in 2 weeks and will offer an amazing captaincy choice at home. I'm going Salah + Eriksen(+0.5) and switch to son ASAP.

                King is purely in because of fixtures right now

                  he let me down badly last season when I had him, wouldnt touch him with a barge pole now

        2. Robman
          • 4 Years

          is zenchenko and a.smith guaranteed starts as that bench looks weak?

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Indeed it is but its 2 starters. Smith is virtually nailed and there's plenty of other 4.5 options.
            Monitoring Zinchenko but yes he should be nailed as Mendy still out, could become Ederson & Kelly if Zinchenko doesn't play much.

        3. NUFCAndrew

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

          Yes. Tielemans.

      14. Lovren an elevator
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        So you're saying having Kun instead of Sterling, isn't enough to accommodate for missing out on his attacking returns?

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

          who you asking?

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          I'm very surprised they've priced both Kun & Sterling at 12.0.
          Imo they should have priced Kun at 11.5 to make selections a bit more interesting (I.e not everyone jumping on Sterling)

      15. Artorias
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Currently on Salah+ Kane+ Bilva

      16. FPLFreddo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        The 6.5m strikers should be fine with Salah & Sterling, strikers are now the lowest potential area in the game unless you pay for one who gets multiple returns at a time, last season, when Kane was scoring only one goal a game, he was getting blown away by the mids.

        If we can find a 6.5 who ticks over, that should be enough to support a more potent Trent/Robertson/Digne type defender or an explosive mid like Sterling & Salah.

      17. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        I am going without Salah and Sterling - treble Liverpool defence for the first few fixtures
        Then probably phase in the bargain Chelsea/West Ham Leicester/Villa lads.

        4-3-3

        Ryan (button)

        VVD-Robertson-TAA-Coleman-(Azpileceuta)

        Fraser-Sigurdsson-KDB-(Dendocker-Trybull)

        Wilson-King-Kane

      18. Tiralik
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        No Salah to begin with. Sterling & Kane captaincy rotation until GW14 at least. Then maybe Sterling > Salah.

      19. Do the Van Gaal-lem Shake
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        My early drafts I went Salah + KDB and thought, easy, i’ll perma captain Salah and it won’t matter that I don’t have Sterling. However, since I’ve revised and bought in Sterling as well as I think i’ll get bored just keeping the captaincy on one player all year, may as well have some fun trying to guess between the 2 each week even if it inevitably ends in making the wrong choice! If that means going a bit cheaper elsewhere then fine

      20. OneMan
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Auba and Salah. Those opening fixtures.

      21. kime67
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Problem is theres no options in 6.5 only king. Jota has bad fixtures.

        This year is a bit weird.. There are 14 teams who's strikers are available sub 8.. Only 6 teams have strikers above 8 million ie Manutd(if you think they'll be options soon), Leicester(if you Believe Vardy is worth 2 million+ more than his attacking colleagues), Arsenal(if you trust them), City, Spurs and Liverpool(though you wouldn't really want firmino over Salah and Mane). If you plan it correctly there are 14+ strikers who'll hit form over the season at sub 8 and there are loads of safety nets too. So If done correctly sub 8.0 strikers could be the way to go this season

        Entirely agree this is THE question. For me, the following considerations exist:

        a) Salah + Sterling is a comfort zone choice and defensive. I can choose it, but I will not feel good.

        b) Kane or KDB the best alternatives. Both will need to convince me in pre-season, so those two are my top watchlist in pre-season.

        c) With -1.0 price difference Mane, and at same price with a younger Sterling whose better days are yet to come Aguero are both no go for me. Similarly, at the same price, I will never prefer Aubameyang over Kane. For me that determines the two 10+ captaincy choices out of a possible 6.

        Salah, Kane, KDB somehow fits in but not convincingly and is too risky overlooking both Aguero and Sterling but you gotta make a choice.

        So many good options out there even with the hike in defender prices. For me its Salah, Stirling and a cheaper forward line.

        As far as I remember, last season Sterling started with a lot of rotation the first 4-5 weeks, Bernardo was near the top of the mids, then things changed, I'm going with Salah, Kdb and Auba first two weeks then switch to Kane

          He scored in GW1

          Benched GW2

          Then got returns in 4 of the following 5 GW’s (3 G, 2A)

          Benched in GW9

          Then got returns in 4 of the following 5 GW’s (4 G, 4A)

          Benched in GW15

          Then got returns in 8 of the following 15 GW’s (7 G, 5A)

          Etc, etc

          Last season most of the English World Cup semi-finalists started slowly, so I left them all out of my initial squad.
          That doesn't apply this season.

        Happy with Salah Kane Aguero- penalties and proven. Sterling doesn't worry me too much on his own although he's a great player. Kdb and Sane is still at city for now could turn it around

      28. Serendipity
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        It changes but my latest thoughts are Salah, Sterling and KDB. Gives me a route to Son upon his return if I wish.

        The way I achieved this was 5-4-1 (premium back 5, 6.5 mid, 6.5 striker).

          5-4-1 could be a dangerous formation if your bench fodder forwards don't play and then your 6.5 striker misses a match too.

        Salah, Sterling, Vardy, King

        Play them in front of a back 5 full of rampaging fullbacks

        Leaves 10.5 for a GK & an outfield attacker

        Lovely Jubbly

        Not me. I'm thinking of starting the season with

        4.5 /4.0
        VVD, TAA, Zinchenko, Coleman /4.0
        Salah, Sterling, KDB, Dendonker /4.5
        Kane /4.5 4.5

        Just need one 4.0 defender or one other 4.5 milf/fwd to emerge as a starter over preseason to have a playing XI

        Will WC a few gameweeks in once i know the good value assets and which heavy hitters are expendable.

        Does anyone see merit in KDB and Bilva as an alternative to Sterling and whatever the 3rd/4th midfield option is? While I know Sterling offers the highest upside on a weekly basis, KDB and Bilva spread the risk of rotation and mitigate the risk of falling behind to a big week from Sterling.

      35. Kane Toads
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        Mane + Sterling + Bilva for me. Vardy and King up front.

      Kepa

      Salah deBruyne Sigurdsson Tielemans
      Vardy Adams

      Really stuck on this. Thinking of going Vardy+Laporte->Walker+Lacazette, but I'll let that idea breath a little and see how I feel about it in a week's time.

      Tried to fit in Sterling but found myself sacrificing too many things defence.
      Alisson
      VvD ZInchenko Digne Christiensen

        Not sure on Walker - feels like an expensive extra 2 points every other week over a 4.5 option. I’m thinking O’Connell as a punty choice. SU look the most likely source of cs among the promoted and he’s a possible attacking return too. That 2 mill enables quite a lot.

        Laca is intriguing. It’s just Arsenal feel a mess with all the non- transfers and presumed late comers who’ll miss preseason with them.

        Also early double Leicester just feels ott imo.

      I'll assess attacks such as West Ham/Chelsea in the first 2 GWs as possible replacements for King/Fraser in GW3.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        I'm going Eriksen and +0.5 instead of moura +2. Gives me more time to get son in if I have other priorities

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

          That is a fair piece of logic.
          I have KDB in that bracket with Salah and Sterling my only other choices for change.

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

        1st 2 games?
        Alli is a dark horse with the signing of Ndo and being pushed forward.
        He has to get back on track (probably socially) and he could make the difference with Spurs.

      3. POLSKA GOLA
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        I think Moura is great shout for GW1 however I wouldn’t expect any returns in GW2 and he may not start GW3 home fixture when Son’s back.
        As someone pointed out to me when I posted the same question a few weeks ago it’s a future waste of a transfer and one of unwritten FPL rules is not to start GW1 with players that are not nailed

        Firmino must change to be value.
        Zaha Perez Tiele are a wait and see.
        I would have no more than one of the 4 choices.
        C no for sure
        B no for sure

          All quite speculative atm and preseason should hopefully reveal more.
          I would love to see Perez playing upfront with Vardy and Firmino showing a bit of scoring form.
          They would be my preferred choices.
          But it will all probably change... πŸ™‚

              I can’t argue with it...
              I’ve pushed myself to a 4-4-2 at times.

      I really don’t know what to do, I’m changing my squad every day I might just wait & not touch this game til a week before, I’m going round in circles.

      Are people actually set on there teams already.

        No point tweeking your team atm, wait until 1 week before start when we know more of pre-season and transfers. For now just read the articles, follow hot topics, ask questions about players, formations and you’ll have a decent idea how to chose your team for GW1

        Going to watch the template drastically change over the next couple of weeks on here

        Basically everytime a player scores there will be 600 Rmt's containing that player. Guarantee the madness is on its way :lol:.

            Yer good idea. I think planning past the first 4 weeks is a bit daft. So much changes. Usually after the first 2

              Yeah it makes it a lot more simple if you don’t pin your hopes on the groupthink here. Can make some serious progress playing the first two fixtures

      • mdm

        2 months, 5 days ago

        Which option:

        A. Sterling + Perez/Deul
        B. KDB + Vardy

        1. AuFeld
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Sterling + Deul offers a greater output as long as Deulofeu plays.

        2. Ëð
          • 4 Years

          I'd lean towards B I think. But monitor KDB during preseason.

          As long as Rudiger is out, you can expect Christ to play.

              Could be even better if Azpi plays CB. might mean 4.5 Zappy starts.

        Salah (C) KDB Moura James (maybe my punt but needs to be watched) Hayden (Could be Dendonker)

        Zaha for James if the future turns out that way

          Which would you rather have?

          A. Perez and a 6.5m defender (Laporte or Alonso)
          B. Fraser and a 5.5m defender (Coleman or Trippier)
          C. Sigurdsson and a 5m defender (Ake)

          2. Do the Van Gaal-lem Shake
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Are some of the 4.5/5.0 mids being wrongly ignored as starters just because they tick over and don’t offer massive threat?

            My logic is if you compare them to a 4.5 defender (which is the right comparison if you consider both cost +0.5 against the cheapest in their position) they score near the same.

            For example the top scoring 4.5 defenders using this years pricing and last years score were Lascelles (95), Cathcart (93), Dunk (91) and everyone else had sub 90 points. In contrast the top scoring sub 5.0 mids are Kante (116), Noble (99), Jorginho (96) and another 3 who got 90 and above.

            So rather than try guess/rotate the best option/combination between the likes of Cathcart, Taylor and Smith who seem the most popular in the drafts I’ve seen, why not just play a Dendoncker every week, bench a 4.0m defender and release that potential extra 0.5 for the rest of the XI? With premium defenders and mids being a struggle to fit in, is it worth just having one player that you leave all season to tick over at the cheapest price?

            Would be interested to know peoples thoughts?

              2 months, 5 days ago

              My thoughts are you've used 2 4.5m defenders as examples and compared them to 2 5m mids. If you compared 5m defenders instead, you'd have Ake & Boly who outscored Kante, Noble, Jorginho.

              1. Do the Van Gaal-lem Shake
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Maybe I didn’t make it particularly clear but I’m comparing 1 to 1, not 2 vs 2. E.g Dendoncker vs one 4.5 defender (which is still 0.5 more on base price for the 4.5 defender) or Kante vs 2 rotating 4.5’s (again 0.5 difference applies), comparing to 5.0m defenders is 1.0m difference on your overall budget

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

              I think the only £4.5’s I would consider for the first XI are goalies and defenders in a rotation so as to try and play them only when they’ve got decent fixtures, I wouldn’t want to be relying on them every week.

              1. Do the Van Gaal-lem Shake
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                I agree, when you get down to these price points it’s when you’re scraping the barrel to accommodate elsewhere - but my point is relevant when you mention the 4.5 rotation you might consider. Personally I’ve never had much luck getting the right rotation, often seeing points on my bench, so is it not easier saving the 0.5 and just playing Dendoncker instead?

                1. Gregor
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • Has Moderation Rights

                  2 months, 5 days ago

                  Potentially, or you could just be left with a sea of 2 pointers and nothing to fall back on. I think I would rather back myself to get a decent rotation and accept that you will be benching good scores sometimes.

                  1. Do the Van Gaal-lem Shake
                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 5 days ago

                    I agree it could just be 2/3 pointers and occasionally an assist in comparison to nailing a rotation and getting 10 or so clean sheets - but the extra 0.5 in the rest of your team by going with the mid could be the difference between Zinchenko and Mendy if he regains his spot or Coleman to Digne etc etc, basically could that extra 0.5 in the team give you more than the upside of a rotation in defence

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

              A similar process to mine.
              I have a 5.0 player in Holebas which is rare for me. The 2.5 point returns on a 4.5 player is right at the bottom of my thinking but id a Doherty or WanB arrive I am not fussed at all.
              One thing I try to avoid is rotation though.

              1. Do the Van Gaal-lem Shake
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                You’re right, if a Doherty/AWB come along again then my whole theory is worthless, but personally I don’t see someone with that potential in this years pricing, currently anyway. The closest I see is Kiko or one of the Sheffield lads if they stay as solid as in the Championship

            4. AuFeld
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              I currently do not have a $4.5m defender: Rob, TAA, Dig, Zinchenko, and Kelly. Do you think it's worth to constantly start Dendoncker to downgrade a $6.5m foward (eg Deulofeu or Deeney) to a fodder and spend the cash elsewhere? Eg Kelly ~> Walker or King ~> Wilson?

              1. Do the Van Gaal-lem Shake
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                I think that’s a completely different scenario in that you’re asking will the 2 6.5 strikers score similar to an 8.0 striker/prem defender plus 4.5 mid...which has so many more variables. For example if you think 2 6.5 strikers get 130 each (260) whilst a 8.0 plus 4.5 def could be 160 + 100 (260), it’s just a lot harder to do that comparison like for like
