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.

    Sorry to be negative but...

    In the history of the P.L and in turn FPL, has their ever been a worse crop of strikers than the present?

    Look down that first page.

    Forget page 2.

    Incredible. Half of page 1 aren't even really strikers/no.9s and many aren't even starters.

    Can I play a 4 6 0?

    1. The Wise Owl
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Just go super cheap then at the front.

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

        I was genuinely trying to start a discussion not picking my fpl team
        Cheers

      I think they missed an opportunity to fix the game this year.

      Any player playing in a front 3 should be listed as a fwd and knock 1-1.5m off their prices to compensate for the lost points - Salah, Sterling, Mane, Sane just to name a few.

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Salah and Sterling basicallly play as Strikers anyway

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

    Only certainties in my team are TAA, Salah & Sterling. Having an absolute nightmare trying to find what to do with the rest

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

      Exactly the same here. Those 3 players will be in my team.come what may.

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Sterling was a must for me to, but now I got Kane as he is 1 mil cheaper

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

    Who’s piling Sterling, Salah and KDB in their team then? Its KDB and Jota or Siggurdson and Wilson. Cant decide

    1. Bossworld
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      We've signed two new strikers, my plan to have Jota has gone out of the window. Can't see him starting

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

        there's no way Jota is not starting

        1. Bossworld
          • 2 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          My mistake Ive misread Mir's deal and he's gone straight out on loan to Forest. How do you fit Jiminez, Jota and the new Milan signing though? Assuming Dendoncker Moutinho and Neves are still nailed and we're still playing with wing backs...

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

            very simple, play jota and jimenez in PL and use cutrone in EL to ease schedule to those two. Jota and jimenez brought top 7 finish, dont fix what aint broken

            1. RECKLESS
              • 8 Years
              2 years, 2 months ago

              Cutrone will be Jiminez replacement long term as Jim is around 29 years so not long time on top left

          2. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 years, 2 months ago

            The new guy is Jimenez-esque. Don't see him replacing Jota.

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

        Sad.

        And given his record of being hauled off early he’s now off my list. That goal involvement record was so tasty for a 6.5.

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

      I think all are proven, but the first pairing for me.

    3. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I have Salah, Sterling and KDB.

      If Jota is a no go, there's always Josh King or Deulofeu @ 6.5m.

      There's also Che Adams and Wesley @ 6m to look at...one of them could start firing.

    4. Chazz69
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I've Jota paired with B Silva

  4. sovietrockettes
    • 2 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    A) Pope VVD KDB

    or

    B) Ederson Robertson Fraser

    Already have TAA

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

      Probably B, based on Burnley keeper uncertainty. Id prefer VVD over Robertson, but that is mainly personal preference. Who is your 3rd Def?

      1. sovietrockettes
        • 2 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Cheers, also have Digne and Zinchenko

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

          Ah ok. Personally Id look at altering that.....

          Zinchenko - people are jumping on him on here, but we know with Pep there is often no rhyme or reason to his selections, you can't afford to have a 5.5 m defender benched.

          Digne - With zouma and Gueye leaving they are not as sure at the back. Yes they he has attacking returns but do you want to rely on these? Coleman is similar for less and not challenged by Baines.

          In Summary

          Ederson

          TAA/Walker/Robertson/Coleman ('down grading' Digne and upgrading Zinc) is a nailed on back line - though that is a lot of money to spend in defence.

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 years, 2 months ago

            Walker didn't start every match imo. I doubt he is worth .5 over Zinch. Or is he more nailed now. Why?

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

              He played 3 games less than Laporte, kept the same amount of clean sheets. Was the second highest scoring man city defender after Laporte (150 vs 177), mainly due to the 2 goals and 2 assists more Laporte had. Zinc is second choice to Mendy, Danilo also plays on the left. Walker is proven in the FPL, less rotation risk and generally a higher scorer. If you want a Man city defender for 5.5 I would go stones.

              1. sovietrockettes
                • 2 Years
                2 years, 2 months ago

                I'm impressed with your reasoning on Digne/Coleman, however, I am not buying the Walker/Zinchenko swap - it feels to me like Zinchenko is as nailed on (at least for the start of the season) as Walker. If that is the case, would you still take Coleman over Digne (assume that there is no other place to put the .5)?

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

                  He might be and if he's not you'll easily find a defender for 5.5. 'feels' and hunches' can pay off, I prefer to try and look at stats, (that being said I think he was involved mainly towards the end of last season - so we'll see). 0.5 certainly not in your defence. Whats the rest of your team?

                  1. sovietrockettes
                    • 2 Years
                    2 years, 2 months ago

                    Salah Sterling Perez Fraser/Lucas Moura (Dendoncker)
                    King Jota (Greenwood)

                    I’m tempted to boost Zinchenko to Laporte and downgrade Digne to a 5.0 - any recommendations?

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

                      Wolves just signed a striker so I would maybe look at Jota again. You could go with Wesley from AV or DCL at Everton and then that saves you .5 for Digne to Coleman.

                      If you have to think that Moura will make way for Son after 2 GW's, this isn't an issue as long as your not trying to do the same with Zinc as well.

      B

  5. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK
    • 6 Years

    Chong and Greenwood up front for Man U at the moment. No goals inevitable, even against some sort of village side.

  6. liverpool01
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Ryan
    Taa, Vvd, Digne, Zinchenko
    Sterling, Salah, Fraser, Sigurdsson
    Deulofeu, King

    Subs: Button, Greenwood, Kelly, Dendoncker

    0.5 Itb GW3: Sigurdsson > Perez, Fraser > Son

    Thoughts please?

    Thank you

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

      I like that your thinking ahead. Personal id look at Digne to Coleman, Zinc to a nailed on 4.5 and Ryan to Ederson, (see my comments above on Zinc and Digne).

      I think your team has a good balance of FPL Proven players, though you don't have much flexibility up top if things go wrong. My current template looks very similar, but I'm trying to bring in Vardy to partner King and planning on Salah to Mane when he starts to play.

  7. Scratch
    • 12 Years

    Anyone gambling on KWP? Only £5m. Trippier gone. Aurier no pre season, just had hand surgery and apparently transfer listed before Trippier left.

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

      Yep

    2. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years

      Another GW1 player.

    3. Egg noodle
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Pochettino will find a way to rotate him too..

    4. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Dont trust Poch and Wing back position - would constantly rotate Davies and Rose irrespective of their performance.

    5. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Foyth is prolly first pick after ban expires

  8. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Need two starters for 15m.
    This is what I have:

    Sterling Perez Dendoncker
    Kane Wilson Greenwood

    A. KDB + 5.5
    B. Fraser + Jimenez
    C. Vardy + 6m
    D. Any other combo for 15m

    Appreciate your suggestions.

    1. Chazz69
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      What about B Silva and Brooks or Milivojevic ?

  9. Egg noodle
    • 11 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    The one player I'm most unsure of in my team is Siggy.

    Can we have a vote please? Siggy or No Siggy?

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

      No Siggy

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

      Are you a hit taker or serial subnet? If so, avoid Siggy.

      You need to just leave him in there. If not him, then Richarlison

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

      I'd wait until Silva has completed his transfer business to see what the team looks like.

    4. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      No Siggy.

      No goals in the team currently.

      If Zaha goes there, it's a different story...but then you'd buy Zaha for 1m less 😐

    5. Chazz69
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Nah

    6. Galza-The Wanton Trader
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      If Zaha goes to Everton and can get even half the amount of penalties he got at palace, then Siggy will rake the points in...

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        He misses more than he scores

        1. Galza-The Wanton Trader
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          Yeah, he’s not been great recently, that’s true..

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

          Yes, therefore Zaha better or similar option to get points from fantasy assists.

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 years, 2 months ago

            5-2 = 3

    7. Rigid Digit
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Siggurdsson sacrificed to get De Bruyne and Fraser.
      Proper consistent - been a regular in my teams for the past few years, and usually the first name in my Drafts.
      He'll be back in the team soon (I'm sure).

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

      Can't help but feel Siggy is a tad expensive compared to £7.5 options and even some £7's and £6.5's.

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

    I made the decision earlier to not go with Kane......and now I'm rethinking

    The question is....can Wilson match him early doors?

    1. RECKLESS
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      The maim qs is do you want a strong start or not? Go Son if you love Spurs soo much after gw 3

    2. Richarlidad
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Over the first two fixtures, I genuinely think Wilson can match him. Plus most top players will captain Salah in GW1, so even if Kane goes to town against Villa, it wont be too disastrous.

      He only scares me against Newcastle in GW3. I imagine he will be a prime captaincy choice.

      1. Nomar
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        I’ll have Son by then, though, so no worries for me!

    3. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
      • 9 Years

      I've both.

  11. RECKLESS
    • 8 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    This Mcdermott GK looks real player. 20+ saves vs Manutd still counting and some DeGea-esque by feet

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

      Former Arsenal youth team player.

  12. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Thoughts on Digne with Gueye gone?

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

      I’ve gone off him

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

      We will replace Gueye & he offers good attacking potential.

      For example, Coleman had only once exceeded his total from last year

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

      All depends on striker Moist Kean Signing.

  13. NUFCAndrew
    • 5 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    A: Laporte + VVD

    B: Robbo + Walker

    Already have TAA if that changes things

    1. Chazz69
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      A

    2. RECKLESS
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Community shield will help you to know which defender is better as Liv have bad a torrid preseason form. TAA is RM. The more you think of a 7m set piece taker the better your season will go

    3. Hairy Potter
      • 6 Years

      A

  14. Blaves
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Worth running a 5.5 Spurs defender? If so which one of Alder, Sanchez and Vertonghen?

    Allows me to downgrade to Zouma in GW2 if he starts.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Alderweireld is due a goal

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Could have looked at this comment instead of posting below. Alder is currently my choice

      1. Blaves
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        KWP for a GW1 punt at 5.0 could be the play and bank the 0.5 to see how Coleman/Spurs 5.5 go

        1. The Colonel
          • 7 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          Foyth will play rb

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

      I’m still on Vertonghen. He’s the most nailed I think.

    4. Rigid Digit
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Toby - no frills, nailed, and Spurs should be solid

  15. Petes Sake
    • 10 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Is there any Sky Sport player articles out yet? I've had a search but can only see last year's ones.

  16. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Pick two from:

    A) TAA
    B) VVD
    C) Digne

    1. Chazz69
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      B C

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years

        How on earth can you not say TAA :-/

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years

      A + B

    3. Blaves

      • 4 Years

      A
      B

      Wait to see the impact Gueye and Zouma leaving has on Everton.

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        People mostly pick Digne for his attacking returns

  17. FC Hakkebøf
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Best 5.5 defender from Spurs?

    I was on Davies, but his recent surgery makes me a bit cautious. So prolly Alderweireld?

    1. mxstro
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Dont forget Lloris (5.5)

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Already have Ederson in goal.. so has to be a defender

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

      I’m on Vertonghen. Most nailed I think.

  18. Ask Yourself
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    That Newcastle line up is a 3511 not a 433 surely?

    1. Hairy Potter
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Yep, 3 at the back with Manquillo and Ritchie as wingbacks

  19. mxstro

    King Kane

    Alli Vardy

    Expecting alli to play further forward with ndombele coming in, and returning back to 175+ with less injury problems like last season.

      King Kane ...

      Alli is one to monitor if there’s a double pivot behind him. But can Spurs fit Alli Son Eriksen and Kane on the pitch regularly? Do they make sense as a combo?

      Given injuries last season it’s hard to say. At any given point one was always out.

    Could Batshuayi be the main starter for Lamps? I don’t see Giroud being his style but could he go that route for safety?

    Also, Pogba has been playing beautifully in pre-season. If he doesn’t leave and is reunited with Dybala could that make him a genuine prospect?

    Punty team.

    Ryan
    TAA VVD Luiz Diop
    Salah Sterling Pogba Perez
    Wilson Bats

    Lund, Dend, Greenwood

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

      It's certainly punty. I reckon Tammy may be more secure though?

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        It's a toincoss between Giroud, Abraham and Bats. I reckon they will all get game time and the one finding form first gets the spot. Stay clear

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Why Luiz?

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        The highest-scoring 6m defender? Why not?

        Nothing punty about that team - except Batty. Very very punty. Don't go there - wait a couple of weeks to see how Chelsea line up.

        1. FC Hakkebøf
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          Highest scoring 6.0 last year, but in a new shaped team under a new manager.

      Yeah, but how often will Mata be on the pitch?

      Not 90min week in week out like Pogba

  23. FC Hakkebøf
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Better combination?

    A) Ederson, Alderweireld, Siggy, Fraser

    B) Lloris, Stones, KDB, Perez

    Rate my draft team out of ten.

    Think I've done well in defence and with Aguero and Son but a lot of punts in there...

    Pickford
    VVD Walker Stones Doherty Duffy
    Gross Brooks Robinson
    Aguero Jota

    Pope, Abraham, Son, McGinn

    1. Richarlidad
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Feel bad for saying this but 2/10. The midfield makes me physically ill.

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

        Very fair. Unfortunately I passed on Mane and went for Aguero with my first pick... and then Son. It was all downhill from there

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Do not like it.

      Reasons: Doherty, Gross, Brooks, Robinson and pickford

      Too many punts

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        3/10 mate.. back to the drawing board sorry

      2. SADIO SANÉ

        what's wrong with Brooks and Pickford?

    4. Rostah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Why have son on the bench? Get someone else for the 1st two gameweeks and just transfer him in. Massive waste of funds

    5. BadgersBoys
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Midfield is far too weak, imo.

    6. tbeans22

      At a glance it feels like there should be another 4-5 mil left to spend.

      1. SADIO SANÉ

        correct

        Ahhhhhh, how many teams in your draft league? Gives a better idea of how strong a team is knowing what you're up against!

          8 man draft. 2 teams were on autopick and its head to head. Think I'll try keep the defence the same and change my punts in midfield and attack week to week 🙂

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

            Decent team for an 8 man league. I've been playing draft for around 6 years now with a group of friends, great format of everyone stays active. I've found jumping on fixture swings a week or so before a really good spell works great. Especially for the budget options.

              2 years, 2 months ago

              Cheers mate. Some of the others have done a lot better than me I think. Yeah that worked well for me last year. Short term punts based on fixtures. 🙂 It's all FFS members so should stay competitive throughout 🙂

    8. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I think you've done OK.

      Stones and Doherty aren't great picks in defence.

      Abraham and McGinn could be gems

      1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Yeah I went for a few punts. It was an 8 man draft so we got the good picks out the way quite fast

    Which players do you think will get the most points this season? What would you change?

    6.Aguero

      Give me half hour to put these all in the correct order....

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

        Ok.. But what’s Tempe biggest difference you would do?

        1. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          Son prob higher up

          Kane lower down (lack of minutes through injury)

          Kdb much higher if he continues this fitness

      2. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Haha

    2. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Mane will regress this year I think. Last year was a high water mark for him.

      Will Liverpool be keeping 20 CS this year? Slight regression there too.

      KDB, Pogba seem a bit low. No Fraser on the list. Some Leicester mids could be insurgent this year.

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

        Ok fair but who would you replace KDB with? And would you have Kane or Auba instead of Mane?

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

          If KDB stays fit, he's gonna be 190-200pts...previous seasons tell you that.

          Kane (again, if fit) can hit 200.

          Auba, dunno, Arsenal are utterly unpredictable, they have Europa League again.

          Before last season, no defender ever hit 200pts, the Robbo and VVD did (TAA would've done if he'd played more minutes). Alonso was only scoring 180 in his awesome season. So I wouldn't bank on any 200pt defenders.

          So, I'd go Salah, Sterling, Kane, KDB, Aguero, Auba as a top 6

    3. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Kane/Mane/Bobby lower
      Aguero/Sterling/Son/Pogba higher
      Rashford not on the list, at least one of Alonso/LaPorte/Ederson/Allison probably should be

      some new players coming in like Pepe, Dybala could well feature.

    First draft. What do we think?
    Lloris
    Aarons VVD Walker
    Salah KDB Moura Perez Trezeguet
    Kane Jimenez

    Button Ayew Cathcart Lundstram

    Do you think it would be worth finding an extra 0.5 and upgrading Trezeguet to Trossard? Also, who would you say are the best value 4.5 defenders? Cheers.
