    Thoughts on zinchenko. Nailed but will get max 6pts. Worth keeping possibly for the season just for the cs?

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

      He can't get assists?

    2. RUUD!
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      he can get assists but don't think he's a season keeper personally

    3. Eytexi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      I'm keeping unless on WC or he looks to have lost his place. Ceiling is higher than 6 points though - looked good going forward and will get a handful of assists.

    4. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Why will he only get a maximum of 6 points each week? He picked up a few assists last season.

    5. BenjoBD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Until he looks like being replaced he's a nailed on pick every week.

      1. Pinky and De Bruyne

        2 words, Menjamin Bendy

    6. kime67
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Hes pretty slow and stayed back a lot against west ham. Hes crosses were poor too. He had one chance where he couldhave assisted jesus easily but didnt see the chance..

    7. kime67
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Also gonna get lot of yellow cards i think

    8. kime67
      • 2 Years

      Should have got awb instead. Hes a bonus magnet

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        It's early days, City will keep a lot more clean sheets than United over the course of the season, IMO.

    9. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Yep. I predict that he will get 4 assists. Ignore the Mendy botherers. 😉

    10. Gregg Wallace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      As a non-owner I sure hope that Mendy comes back sooner rather than later!

  2. RUUD!
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 5 days ago

    Already bracing myself for a s*** gameweek, which 2 would you start?

    Dendonk
    Hayden
    KWP
    Cathcart

    1. bhunasallround
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      All the tells that u got sterling, salah, Kane / auba

    2. GoonerByron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Donk Hayden

    3. SADIO SANÉ

      B D

    4. Eytexi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      When ordering my bench, I couldn't find anything scanning the stats that indicated Hayden had any chance of returning vs. Arsenal.

      Dendoncker had that disallowed goal and looked to push forward at times, having 2 shots & 3 pen box touches. Looks alright but doubt United concede more than 1.

      KWP & Cathcart will both be limited to 1 point returns imo, but if KWP looked any good going forward vs. Villa then I still reckon he has more attacking potential than Hayden.

      I guess that makes my answer: Dendoncker & KWP, although not much hope with any of them. 🙂

    5. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      I'd start the two midfielders, not ideal tho.

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Can actually see Wolves beating United on Monday, so who knows, Dendoncker could be in the points.

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

          His points are quite rare and impossible to predict. But good set and forget 1st or 2nd sub.

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            His average position vs Leicester was quite encouraging tho - almost level with Jimenez, plus a couple of shots including one in the box. Out of the options given, he's surely a starter for the poster.

  3. ChippyT

    Morning Chaps,

    Came in at 593k thanks to Kane, bit of an odd start to the season if you ask me, just going to leave my team for now.

    Pope
    Robbo | VVD | Zinchenko | Digne | Montoya
    Sterling (VC) | Salah (C) | Fraser
    Wilson | Jota

    Button | Donk | Perez | Greenwood

    Hoping Bournemouth bounce back against Villa, will most likely make a move for Rashford/Martial in the coming weeks.

    That is all.

    1. BenjoBD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 5 days ago

      thanks for that i was worried...lol

      I've got fraser/wilson and you've basically got to give them Villa away so thinking is similar.

      1. ChippyT
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        I'm a Villa fan, so hoping for a goal fest tbh!

    2. Wings Fan
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Yep, no need to push any panic buttons yet. It's a good squad.

      Benching Perez would give me a bit of a headache though. Tough call.

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

      Benching Perez against a team that has just conceded 4 to United. Leicester attack arent below or perhaps they could be better than United's attack. Think he should play.

    4. goldengove
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      I have an identical team except Martial instead of Fraser.

      Am struggling to decide who to bench between Montoya / Perez / Jota

      Montoya - West Ham leaky and playing advanced
      Perez - Didn't impress against Wolves, but Chelsea's defence look pretty dire atm
      Jota - Looked best in attack against Leicester

      Bit stuck TBH!

    5. rjcv177
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      in same position here with Fraser+King.
      What if they come good vs Villa, would they be a "wait and see" after the City game is out of the way?
      that's my problem now

      They know Che Adams will bang em in past Adrian.

      1. Pinky and De Bruyne
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Southampton relegated this season, bloody awful team

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

          Not deluded to think that we are immune to relegation, but Im choosing to be more hopeful. Ralph is a quality manager, its the players who need to decide whther they want to play for their place in the PL or not.

          1. Midlands Saint73
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            I think we will be fine this season, we have a bad start is all.

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

              Hope so too. Felt like the players were too much in "preseason" mode vs BUR, did not take the game by the scruff of the neck at all.
              The sooner we take to 4-2-2-2, the better. Cant stand 3-4-3.
              Hard to feel hopeful for the next 3/4 games though. Will keep in Adams in my squad though.

          2. Pinky and De Bruyne
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            I'm actually quite found of the Saints but they have not been the same squad since Pellè left in 2016 to some shite Chinese club. The squads been filled with rejects rather than prospects which is what they are renowned for.

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

              Management could have been better since Koeman left. Puel, Pellegrino and Hughes have been terrible for us.
              Ralph looks like a very progressive manager, the right man. Questions remain on do we have the right players to play his way?

        2. bhunasallround
          • 1 Year

          They were unlucky to be playing the most inform team in the PL first game

    5. The Man Pastore

      Lol, that is crazy...

      1. Pinky and De Bruyne
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Also people forgetting that Adrian is also not a bad keep at all. So much better than Mignolet was or ever will be.

  5. Eytexi

  6. Louis Van Gaalstones
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 5 days ago

    Anyone who watched the Newcastle game, how did Joelinton look? Saw some highlights and he looked fairly feisty but not sure if he's a viable option

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

      He can run, he can find space, he can head and play with his back to goal and tee up teamates.
      He just cant finish for the life of him.

      1. Louis Van Gaalstones
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Such a shame

    2. conners88
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      He looked good, his movement and goals in pre-season also gives me confidence. Reckon he will get 12-15 goals this season.

      1. Pinky and De Bruyne
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Think the whole Newcastle team will struggle to get 12-15 goals this season...

        1. conners88
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  7. Lets all klopp together
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    4 months, 5 days ago

    So this is my team

    Pope
    Zinchenko, c.taylor, robertson, Targett
    Salah, sterling, perez, lucas
    King, Aubameyang

    Bench, button, kwp, greenwood, Dendoncker

    Im tempted to use my free transfer and take lucas out for lanzini,

    Whats peoples thots?

    1. Evil Genius

    2. Eytexi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      West Ham attackers don't seem at all settled so not sure Lanzini will remain nailed just yet. I'd hold off and see how they perform against Brighton (that's what I'm doing re. Haller). That said, having Lucas vs. City isn't ideal so if you think it's worth the risk then go for it!

    3. boc610

      this is the GW to save a FT imo

        Thanks people for the advice, might just save it, thank my team isnt looking too bad, lucas might get a goal hahaha

  8. Differential (c)

    4 months, 5 days ago

    Lacazette to play next week, probably? Thinking of capping him.

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      I'd keep him if I owned him but I wouldn't captain him. Emery has the twitchiest fingers - all it would take is for Burnley to take the lead and he'll lose the plot with his subs.

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

        Aye, that is true. Will think about it. Arsenal historically have done well vs BUR for the past few h2h, so think the pattern could continues.

    2. bootsmanus
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Think Arsenal will only put max 1 past Burnley - look elsewhere.

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years

        Why do you think they'll put only 1 past Burnley?

        1. rdpx
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Because they are just historically disappointing

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            There is very little to suggest they'll only score one tho - only City and Pool scored more than them at home last season.

            1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 5 days ago

              Hey mate. How you doing? How dis gw1 treat you?

              Got a quick question for you, villa's fixtures look great, do you think there will be goals scored? Who will be the pick of the attacker according to you?

              1. avfc82
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 10 Years
                4 months, 5 days ago

                Hey, yeah I think we'll tick over. It's going to take time to gel with so many new faces but I can see McGinn and Grealish picking up attacking returns over the next few.

                1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
                  • 3 Years
                  4 months, 5 days ago

                  And Wesley? What can we expect from him?

                  1. avfc82
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • Has Moderation Rights
                    • 10 Years
                    4 months, 5 days ago

                    I think he'll drop quite deep and bring others into play, so I'd want to see a couple more games before investing.

                    1. The Overthinker - I blame R…

            Since Auba joined Arsenal....

            Arsenal 5 - 0 Burnley (Auba 2 goals and 16 points)

            Arsenal 3 - 1 Burnley (Auba 2 goals 13 points)

            Burnley 1 - 3 Arsenal (Auba 2 goals 13 points).

            Not too disappointing if you ask me, he currently has the armband in my team.

        2. bootsmanus
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Arsenal are still a big questionmark in their best starting 11, lots of rotation and key player positions have new signings (Pepe, Ceballos). They looked really poor against Newcastle, meanwhile Burnley have a starting 11 pretty much set in stone and have only conceded more than 1 one goal once in the last 7 games.

          1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            But Arsenal's record against Burnley is good ( especially Aubameyang's)

          2. avfc82

            • 10 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            Re the conceded more than one goal only once in their last seven games bit - where has that stat come from? Which games are you referring to?

    3. The Overthinker - I blame R…
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Cap auba

  9. Fnug
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 5 days ago

    Captain Salah, Auba or Sterling?

    1. boc610
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Mo, saints looked awful

    2. Gregg Wallace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Would have said Auba before the season started but it's got to be Salah now
      Southampton poor defensively, Burnley not so much

      1. Fnug
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        But it's Arsenal at home, with Özil, Laca etc back, not the dross that scraped through vs the barcodes... I'm a Liverpool fan myself, and I don't see us scoring big at St Marys. Would hurt me big time if I'm wrong, though.

        1. Gregg Wallace
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          That's a good point and they should fare a lot better this coming gameweek for the reasons you stated
          Go with your gut! Could be a big rank boost if you are right

    3. RUUD!
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Auba if I had him

    4. bootsmanus
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Salah

    5. The Man Pastore
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      I have the 3 of them and will go with Salah I think

  10. Uns95
    • 1 Year

    Got 91 points this week, very happy - Sterling, Salah, Kane doing wonders.

    Worth transferring Kane out for Auba before then doing the reverse transfer after next week?

    I am happy with the rest of my team and understand it may be worth saving a transfer but I can't help but think that Auba could seriously haul against Burnley whereas I can't see Kane doing the same away at City.

      You are nutty

      How does the rest of your team look?

      1. bhunasallround
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 5 days ago

        4.5s all over the shop

    3. bootsmanus
      • 1 Year

      Crazy thinking right there.

    4. Uns95
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Team here for this next week:

      Ryan
      Robertson VVD Digne Lundstrom
      Sterling Salah(c) Perez Robinson
      Kane King

      Button Dendonker Greenwood KWP

      1. Catastrophe
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        I have literally exactly the same squad. Rolling FT.

    5. Rains of Castamere
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      If you think Auba will outscore Kane and have no other pressing issues, yes - do it. It's your team; ignore anyone who says it's crazy to do hokey cokey transfers.

    6. korbendallas82

      I am on some similar. But went Auba from GW1. Switching gw3 i think.

        Good week for a punt !

      He did look very good at the weekend.

  12. BenjoBD
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    4 months, 5 days ago

    Anyone else reckon this Trossard bandwagon is highly influenced by the higher than average Brighton contingent running the site?

    No beef intended just think its an interesting example of bandwagon influencing particularly if you watch the fantasy football scout videos/podcasts with Joe and David ( which are excellent). Both Brighton fans i believe. lol

    1. BenjoBD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 5 days ago

      or is he actually really good?

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

      Isnt it Az who is the BHA fan?

      1. BenjoBD
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 5 days ago

        it could be. at least 2 of them are.

    3. bhunasallround
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Who

    4. Evil Genius
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Nah, he was great in pre-season so no reason to ship him out just yet.

      All the newbies got limited minutes so not a huge shock really.

    5. Eytexi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Hadn't even noticed, but an interesting thought.

    6. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      If anyone is dumb enough to pick players that they don't even know based on other people's (admittedly very good fpl managers) recommendations then they are to blame. I really don't get people just lamely following or copying the crowd or the experienced fpl managers, surely you wanna beat them not just always be one step behind them

      1. BenjoBD
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 5 days ago

        agreed. Just reckon that particular pick will be higher amongst followers of FFS because of it. i don't have him. seen him in alot of teams.

        1. mynameisq
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          You're correct

      2. Gregg Wallace
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Bit harsh to call us dumb
        I don't think a lot of people picked him just because he was bigged up on the scoutcast, they picked him for a whole host of other reasons (which are also the exact same reasons why they were talking about him in the first place)
        In fact I was actually annoyed that he was getting a lot of attention because he was pencilled into my draft beforehand and I thought that he could be a great differential

        1. mynameisq
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          I said anyone who'd picked him just based on other people recommending him are dumb

          So if there's a whole host of reasons fair enough, that's the non dumb people

    7. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      no its because he had a good preseason and people overestimate 1) how much preseason form matters 2) how likely new players are to start gw1

    8. korbendallas82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      AZ mentioned that he backed Brightons attacking potential. This i think, others here can agree has been some truth in.

  13. RED_ARMY
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 5 days ago

    Worth doing Pope > Heaton for the next three ?

    1. Eytexi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Nah, reckon it's worth holding the transfer for GW3.

    2. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Surely when you picked Pope your intention wasn't to move him on after one game week, so I'd hold and hope for a few save points along the way.

    3. COK3Y5MURF - Unbelievable J…
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Why did you even start with Pope then?

    4. Aubaaaaa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Hold. Can get save points. And never know, an unexpected cs at arsenal.

    5. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Probably not, but awful fixtures next 3

    6. The Man Pastore
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      That's the kind of transfer you do not waste a FT on...

      1. The Man Pastore
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        *want to waste

    7. BenjoBD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 5 days ago

      i wouldn't. can't see villa bagging loads of clean sheets any way.

  14. Vamos Los Celeste
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 5 days ago

    Bench Stones or Lundstram ?

    1. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Lundstram.

    2. Eytexi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Lundstram.

    3. Vamos Los Celeste
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Cheers guys , i will go with the differential then which is Stones 😀

  15. Oh Dear
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 5 days ago

    Slightly regretting starting with Lucas Moura as I’m already looking at moving him out (City next, Son return after that). Would you:

    A) hold for now
    B) > Martial for a free
    C) > other mid £7.5 or less (who? Already on Perez)

    Ta

    1. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      I'd hold this week, then move on ahead of GW3.

    2. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Holding personally

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

      A

    4. BoomXhakaLaca1
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 5 days ago

      Get Martial

    5. Dreadful
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 days ago

      B) otherwise even though you’ll have 2 free transfers next week, 1 will need to be a downgrade in order to afford Martial at 7.6.

    Choose 1 to play:

    1. Flapjack
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Probably ahead of me

        Your team cannot be this bad !!

      What score did he get?

      1. The Overthinker - I blame R…

        50

  19. footballfreak
      4 months, 5 days ago

      at this pace you think rashford is going to increase in price before next GW?

      1. MTPockets
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Yes but hope not

        1. footballfreak
            4 months, 5 days ago

            already made one transfer to save 0.5 to get him and feel i should go -4 just coz he will increase if i wait

        2. Joga Bonito®
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Yea, pretty annoying. However, he’s never been consistent so in a couple of games it wouldn’t surprise me if everyone is dumping him again.

        3. Aubaaaaa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Probably.

      2. Kingtekkerz
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Would you do Bilva to Martial for free?

        1. rjcv177
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          yup.
          Great working rate from Bilva means less FPL points then a "moody" Martial (as wrong as this should mean for teamwork and collective results)

        2. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Considering it, but not sure wolves away is such a good game

      3. rjcv177
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Morning all
        Saving after a bad start...but trying to be clinical

        Ryan
        TAA, VVD, Digne
        Salah, KDB, Fraser, Trossard
        Auba (C), King

        A) Play Lundstram or Perez?

        B) on Gw3 what would be your priority to fix? (selling Auba was the plan anyway)
        1 - No Kane
        2 - No Sterling (doubling with KDB)
        3 - United att combo (Rashford vs Martial)

        thkx in adv

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          perez, sterling

        2. Rains of Castamere
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          I'd be looking to get Sterling in. Maybe Fraser and Auba to Sterling and 6.5 striker.

          1. rjcv177
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            definitely an option. thkx
            Auba+Trossard+Fraser to Jota+Sterling+Barkley?

        3. Top Lad Dakes.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Play Perez, and id try to get raz

          1. rjcv177
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            if i do auba+kdb i can go rash+sterling. Probably the most "boring" beacuse it's so obvious, right?

      4. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Would you just hold with this lot? 0 ITB

        Pope
        TAA VVD Digne Zinchenko // Rico
        Salah(c) Sterling Sigurdsson Perez // Dendoncker
        Wilson Jota // Greenwood

        Tough week for most but no obvious changes are there?

        1. Kiwivillan

            😛 cheers lad ahah, I’ll take that as a good thing. Couple players im keeping an eye on like mcginn, awb, Wesley, Haller etc, as well as I would like to fit Son in when he’s back

        2. goldengove
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Almost identical team as me (Siggy = Martial and Rico = Montoya)

          I'm having trouble picking who to bench, so I think you're GTG

          1. Top Lad Dakes.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          So similar to my team.

          I want rid of Perez but I know it’s knee jerk so holding on one more week for 2 FT’s

          1. Top Lad Dakes.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            Yeah, keeping faith w Leicester at least another week. He is a solid pick and one week hasn’t changed that

      5. LC1
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Really chuffed with GW1.

        Debating whether to save FT this week and head into GW3 with 2 FTs;

        Pope
        VVD TAA Digne Dunk
        Salah(c) Sterling Barkley Perez
        Kane King

        Button Rico Wickham Dendoncker

        Also, would you start Rico above anyone else? Barkley worries me slightly as I thought he looked pretty poor against United.

        Any advice is much appreciated!

        Thanks!

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years

          If it ain't broke...

      6. Regin
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        why nobody talking about a salah & mane double up? Mane just as dangerous as Mo.
        Mane should be back in the starting lineup.

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

          he isnt “just as dangerous” though is he

        2. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Game tomorrow - see who plays

        3. bhunasallround
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Coz every man and their llama has salah sterling

        4. BoomXhakaLaca1
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Origi played well last week, hard to drop him

        5. Wings Fan
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          The only way to get him in with one transfer for GW2 is to get rid of Sterling, which isn't going to happen.

          I'll be looking at the double up once my TV increases and probably reduce by double Liverpool defence to just VVD

      7. goldengove
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Who to Bench this week.... Montoya / Perez / Jota?

        Pope
        Robbo | VVD | Zinchenko | Digne | (Montoya)
        Sterling | Salah | Martial | (Perez)
        Wilson | (Jota)

        Thoughts?

        1. Vamos Los Celeste
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Perez

      8. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 5 days ago

        Have I got this right? Of the newly promoted teams the best defensively (i.e., goals against) last season were:
        1. SHU
        2. NOR
        3. AVL

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Yes you did get it right.

          And this was largely reflected at the weekend too.

          1. jtreble
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 5 days ago

            Thanks.

        2. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 5 days ago

          Yes, though Norwich and Villa were close, and Villa's defence got a lot better as the end of the season was nearing.

          This was in the Championship though against the likes of Rotherham and Ipswich.

          1. jtreble
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • 10 Years

          Correct, but I'd probably switch Norwich and Villa round - we tightened up, quite a bit, once Mings arrived in January.

        Have Alisson in a draft league guys and Adrian has been picked up. Who would you pick from these until Ali returns?

        A) Pope
        B) Ryan
        C) Krul

        Are you better having a 4.5 midfield sub e.g. Dendoncker
        or a 5.0 sub e.g. Kante?

        I see many teams with 100.5 team value despite the fact that no players have risen in price.. Anyone know anything about this? Are FPL doing something to fix this?
