Departures could hurt Crystal Palace’s FPL assets this season

An examination of last season’s underlying statistics suggests that the new campaign could prove tough for Crystal Palace.

The Eagles have already lost Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m) to Manchester United and other clubs continue to sniff around important attacking asset Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m).

Whether they would be able to cope without the pair is certainly a key question that Fantasy managers should be considering this summer.

As we resume our Numbers Game series, we take a look at the defensive and offensive numbers for Roy Hodgson’s players both as a team and individually to assess their credentials as Fantasy assets in 2019/20.

    Man United about to do a madness...

    If they bring in the players being quoted, I would be very tempted by a united player or two

    1. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Like who?

        1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
          • 11 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          if pogba stays (he may do with bale staying at real), I can see him being a tasty pick too

          1. Ask Yourself
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 years, 2 months ago

            Even at CDM?

          Thx, madness

    2. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I'm not sure Dybala is such a good transfer frankly speaking... I mean expectations will be too high for him from Man United fans as he won't be a goalscoring machine

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        I forgot to add this word: probably...

      2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        It will be interesting to see how he does.

        My opinion is he's much more all rounded than Lukaku and can offer the team so much more. The key here is they are removing Lukaku and potentially receiving a much better all round player.

        Although let's wait and see if he even actually chooses to go to united

    3. Rostah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I've had Martial from GW1 & Rashford from GW3 (Laca GW1&2) in my draft for ages now. If (and that remains to be seen) OGS can have a season more inline with how Utd started under him rather than how they ended last season under him then the two of them are going to be criminally under priced IMO. If after GW4 it doesn't seem to be panning out that way then the traditional GW5 wildcard is there as backup.

      1. Navispar
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        It is a gamble but I like your thinking.
        At least it's different.

    4. EMBOLOFAN
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      would be a mess, cant change your whole team overnight. not interested

    What’s the better use of 1.5m?

    a) bilva to KDB
    b) king to wilson

    cheers

    1. Jurgener Kop It

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      B. Bilva will outscore KDB this season.

  5. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    What do we think the points difference will be between TAA and VVD?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Same as last season.

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Reasonably similar but TAA will probably miss a few games again.
      I expect TAA will have a better PPG of about 1.5.

      1. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        TAA or Robbo of you had to choosr then?

        1. Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          I always go for the higher PPG as I make sure I have a decent bench so if it was a choice I would go for TAA.

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      more

  6. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    What do we think lads? Also pick one: Gross or Perez or Fanderson? Thx

    Ryan,Button
    TAA,Robbo,Zinchenko,Digne,Taylor
    Salah,Sterling,Siggy,Gross,Dendoncker
    King,Jota,Greenwood

    1. Jurgener Kop It
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      perez

    2. Navispar
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Perez to start with then Fanderson.

  7. jaguar shark
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    For me, comes down to:

    1. Sterling + 6.5 forward
    2. 7.5 mid + Kane

    If Kane is full strength, seems like a no-brainer?

    1. Jurgener Kop It
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      1

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Not sure it's a no brainer.
      I've been swapping them around daily.

    3. Lebowski85
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      1. Absolutely

    4. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Another option is having both and getting rid of Salah - excellent captaincy rotation (except week 2) all the way to week 16.

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        its an option but its a bad option

        1. Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          Any reasoning behind this?

          1. Debauchy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 years, 2 months ago

            Salah will be the hugely obvious Cpt gw 1. He hauls as seems likely , you're crawling , high risk not having him

            1. Snevitz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              2 years, 2 months ago

              So you pick players just because other people own them rather than because you think they are the best use of your budget?

    5. SH1M1
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Kane & Jimenez FTW

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Best big 3 I’ve seen despite formation.

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Was told yesterday that Gross may not start - I was being pushed to Trossard as likelier starter.

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Nice. What's the deal with Zouma...going to Everton or staying at Chelsea?

        1. Adambailey7
          • 6 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          I think he will stay at Chelsea. Was just having a punt on him

      2. Adambailey7
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Yeah just had a look at formation and might change to 3 at the back and 2 up top. I will have a look at the grob one closer to kick off

  9. Team Cruel

    Foyth is Spurs' best RB tbf Hazard and Marcelo struggling

    1. Adambailey7
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Yeah it’s a shame he’s suspended for the start of the season

  11. HurriKane
    • 9 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Kane scoring against Juventus and Madrid and looking Razor sharp tonight.

    Beware non owners. Go without him at your peril 😉

    1. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Are you watching the game? Do you know maybe what formation are Spurs playing? 4-3-1-2?

      1. Dokdok666
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        4-2-3-1

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      luckily for us he plays for spurs

  12. chaser123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Any suggestions for this?

    Pope
    VVD TAA Digne Zinchenko
    Salah Sterling KDB Perez
    Deulofeu King

    Button Dendoncker Greenwood Lundstram

    1. HurriKane

    2. EMBOLOFAN

    2. My heart goes Salalalalah

      No no no! Fail

      A) Ederson and Jorginho
      B) Pope and Perez

      1. RomeluStormzy
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        B for me.

      2. EMBOLOFAN
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        lol, a for me from gw1 but i like to start conservatively. if burnley defence/perez look good its 2 transfers later on

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      what?

  14. Chilli Heatwave
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Someone on previous page asking for salah Kane sterling team. Not my cup of tea but best I could do

    Ryan-Button

    TAA-VVD-Zinchenko-Guilbert-4.0

    Salah-Sterling-Perez-Robinson-ceballas

    Kane-king-4.5

    Can switch between 4-4-2 and 3-5-2 as and when

    1. RomeluStormzy
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Think 3 x premiums are too hard to fit in.

    2. Yome
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I have one:
      4.5 4.0
      TAA AWB Vert 4.5 4.0
      Salah Sterling BSilva 6.0 Dedoncker
      Kane King Greenwood

  15. RomeluStormzy
    • 5 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Anyone thinking of 3 x Liverpool with kane and sterling?

    1. Chilli Heatwave
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Assuming you mean x3 pool defence? Not for me, 2 pool defence max personally

      1. RomeluStormzy
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Aye that one...

    2. Ben White saved my life
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Plus Kdb!

    3. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Yuup

    4. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I have four drafts that I can't pick between just Salah, just Sterling, Salah & Sterling, Sterling and Kane.

      I like the captaincy that Sterling and Kane give and I also like having 3 Liverpool defenders, it's just difficult to imagine not owning Salah Vs NOR.

      1. Yank Revolution
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Why not all 3 (Sal/Ster/Kane?)

        1. Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          Because I want flexibility in the price points of my players and a decent bench.

  16. Would Ed Woodward
    • 2 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Had a quick go at fitting Kane into my team alongside Salah/Sterling, thoughts? Had to get rid of Zinchenko so no city def.

    Pope
    TAA VVD Coleman Zouma
    Salah Sterling Perez Brooks
    Kane Wesley

    4.0 Lundstram Dedonck Greenwood

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      3 premiums is a waste of money

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 2 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Yeah, I have Wilson or Vardy instead of Kane but I was just seeing how it'd look, I don't that's terrible though.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 2 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          don't think*

    2. Yome
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Downgrade VVD and upgrade Wesley, Perez or Brooks

  17. Klopp it
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    How much do we thank dybala will be then? Haha

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Lol, behave.

      1. Klopp it
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Part off me hope it happens, but then part off me is thanking if he's that good off a player why are Juventus letting him go? Ok people will say becuz off ronaldo, but surley ud fit him into you'r team some way or another, still be a great player too see in the league

    2. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      9m

    3. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      9 or 10

    4. The 5% Team
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      would make players like Rashford and Martial a bit less interesting fantasy picks no?

      1. Oooof
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Just been thinking that

  18. Iwobi
    • 6 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    A) De Bruyne + Vardy
    B) 7.5 + Kane

    Thinking of transferring Son in for De Bruyne when his suspension ends

    1. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      B) Kane Fraser all day long

      1. Debauchy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Harry speaks

  19. Oooof
    • 6 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Downgrade Sterling to KDB and it’s fairly easy to accommodate 2x City, 2x Liverpool and 2x Spurs inc. Salah and Kane.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      yeah but then you have kdb instead of sterling dont you

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        and 2x spurs

        1. Oooof
          • 6 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          That’s the idea

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • 3 Years
            2 years, 2 months ago

            its not a good idea

            1. Oooof
              • 6 Years
              2 years, 2 months ago

              Not think Spurs will have a good season?

      2. Oooof
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Of course

  20. KUN_DE_BRU_YNE
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Best 4.5£ rotating defender with some attacking threat ??

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      aarons? dunno

    I know everyone says this, but (almost) my final decision comes down to the following - which combo?

    A. Sterling, Coleman, and Nketiah
    (Notes: 3-5-1, Greenwood and Lundstram also on bench).

    B. Kane, Van Dijk and Dendoncker
    (Notes: 4-4-2, already have Robertson).

    I also have KDB in both variations. I'm leaning towards B) right now because even though I want Sterling, the 1m saved with Kane makes a big difference on the other two players in the formation. Thoughts?

            Sterling is my most nailed on player; add Ederson, and which is the ideal 3rd City player to include. Similarly, will spending an extra million on Jiminez make sense vs Jota. We won't know until the season starts, but wanted to test my gut feel.

    My first draft, put almost no thought into it just winged it.

    Ederson
    Robbo Walker Coleman Shaw
    Sterling Pogba Siggy Perez Grealish
    Kane

    Woodmam Drmic Greenwood Kelly

    Thoughts?

    Martial over Pogba on my mind as looks like he is getting a lot of preseason.

    Not sold on Shaw, Walker, Perez, Grealish.

    Would like to see Pepe price as he is a beast.

      I think Salah will score more than Kane

      Never really saw him as an FF asset.
