The Complete Guide to Our FPL Gameweek 2 Tips and Advice

Isn’t it great to be back? After a long summer deliberating over our teams, FPL returned with a bang last week.

Anything you can do, I can do better.

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) predictably added to the 562 points he’s amassed in the past two seasons with a goal and an assist at home to Norwich on Friday night. Not to be outdone, premium-assets Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) and Harry Kane (£11.0m) both surpassed his 12-point haul collecting 20 and 13 points respectively on Saturday.

It promises to be an exciting season if those three can hit the heights expected of them. And let’s not forget Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) who opened his account with a goal away to Newcastle. The Gabon international currently sits second in our Captain Poll for Gameweek 2, just over 17% of the 12,000+ managers who voted picked the Arsenal forward. 

Last week’s runaway-favourite Salah is once again the popular choice for the armband. However it’s a decision that has been complicated by Liverpool’s extra-time win in the UEFA Super Cup in midweek, with the Egyptian playing all 120 minutes.

In addition, as Joe highlighted on the Gameweek 2 Captaincy video, Salah only managed two shots against Norwich. To help you make up your mind, Captain Sensible himself, David, delves into the members’ stats before making his recommendation in the captaincy article

We have a deadline of Saturday 11:30 BST for Gameweek 2. Still time to ponder those potential transfers. However, for many who enjoyed a good start, banking a transfer seems the most sensible option. 

Luke made a compelling case for saving a transfer on the Scoutcast, principally because you gain flexibility for Gameweek 3. Although even if you didn’t get off to a great start – don’t panic! FPL Heisenberg offered words of comfort to those who feel disappointed with their Gameweek 1 scores:

“There is plenty of time left. Don’t focus on the number of points you have right now, look at your squad and see if you’re in good shape for the next few Gameweeks. If your squad is fine, save your transfer. If you have issues, then sort them. Whatever you do, just remember – do not panic!”

Similarly, for managers considering selling Bournemouth assets, TheFantasyFreak is not in favour of jumping ship just yet:

“The likes of Wilson, King and Fraser are proven FPL assets and I don’t think one poor game makes them into a bad pick overnight. Aston Villa conceded the highest number of goal attempts and shots inside the box last week so I think it might be slightly premature to bin off your Bournemouth attackers.”

But ultimately it’s your team. As the FPL General noted in his opinion piece: 

“Only you can know what is right for your squad. Don’t bank just because others are saying it’s the best play.”

Neale (aka Skonto Rigga) has been rounding up the latest team news – the headline is the emerging goalkeeper crisis at Liverpool. With first-choice shot-stopper Alisson set to be “out for a while” after suffering a calf injury against Norwich, his replacement Adrian then picked up an ankle knock in the celebrations following Liverpool’s UEFA Super Cup win. The Spaniard is now a doubt for the trip to Southampton. 

Before the news of Adrian’s injury, David was already questioning the wisdom of doubling-up on Liverpool defenders. Are they still a reliable source of clean sheets? 

However it’s Trent Alexander-Arnold’s attacking prowess that sees him selected in this weeks’ Scout Picks. Despite conceding, the right-back was top for key passes and big chances created at Anfield on Friday night.

One of the main talking points from last weekend was the omission from the Manchester City starting line-up of Bernardo Silva (£8.0m). Teammate Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) was the beneficiary. Seizing his opportunity with both hands, the Algerian contributed three assists in City’s 5-0 win. 

With an ownership of just 3.7%, Mahrez is one of the three players highlighted by Ash (aka FPLHints) in this week’s differentials article. But will the City winger be a victim of Pep Roulette?

Bøwstring The Carp aimed to improve our understanding of Guardiola’s thinking with three insightful articles. In the first, he looked at Guardiola’s background and his influences as a manager. In the second article, he examined the ideas behind Manchester City’s attack. And in the final article he analysed how they defend out of possession

City’s local rivals United featured uppermost in FPLDave‘s thoughts as he reflected on Gameweek 1. Playing as a number 9 but listed in FPL as a midfielder, should we be getting excited about Martial?

Ahead of Gameweek 2, G-Whizz brought us his regular DS stats, fixtures and clean sheet odds – Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester City are predicted to do well. 

Greyhead is back with a brand new season of The Great and The Good, revealing a celebrity line-up to rival Strictly Come Dancing. Everyone’s favourite dad-dancer Mark Sutherns returns for the second series and is joined by newcomers including the sparkling Jules Breach and the aptly-named FFS Community Manager Geoff Dance

Geoff, who finished in the top 50 overall in 2016/17, added a touch of glamour to the Official FPL Podcast in midweek. To quote Len Goodman, watch out for this FPL guru “flying across the dancefloor like a rampant crab”.

Over the summer, Geoff also demonstrated his prowess in real football with a belter of a goal in the Fantasy Football Scout Charity Cup. The third iteration of the tournament, in which FFS users get-together to raise money for charity, has so far collected over £600 for the Stroke Association. Further donations are welcome.

Ógie noticed – and it won’t have escaped Greyhead’s attention either – that you are no longer able to see the team value or the amount of transfers made by other managers. An improvement that has largely been welcomed by FFS managers. 

For Scandinavians and hardcore fantasy managers who’ve been with us throughout the summer, Meltens previewed Gameweek 20 in Fantasy Allsvenskan and began a hot topic discussing plans for the week ahead. 

Meanwhile TallestJohn set the scene for Gameweek 17 in Eliteserien Fantasy. Keep reading for updates on the respective FFS mini-leagues.

Finally a technical note for FFS members who may have experienced problems, the solution for the time being is to whitelisting FFS with your adblocker. The heatmaps, for example, should work if you turn off the adblock.

Mark Fisk is the early leader in our Fantasy Football Scout mini-league with 124 points after playing his Bench Boost. He is 283rd overall. This is Mark’s ninth season, his previous best finish is 34k. There are currently 41,065 managers participating in the Fantasy Football Scout mini-league, to join them enter code ooyz44 in your Leagues’ section on the FPL site. 

Jill Lees was quickest out of the blocks in our FFS Members mini-league with 112 points. Jill achieved her impressive points total without playing a chip, the only player to blank in her starting eleven was Ayoze Pérez (£6.5m). Jill is 4,402nd overall in only her second FPL season. The code to join the FFS Members League can be found on the Members page

In the seventh edition of TorresMagic’s Last Man Standing the safety score for Gameweek 1 was 66, this saw 219 managers fall at the first hurdle. 3,748 teams are through to Gameweek 2, when the threshold for elimination remains at 5%.

It is possible to enter the competition up until Gameweek 22 using the code bcvy39, however you must pass all the previous safety scores to qualify. Aside from bragging rights, the winner will receive a free Fantasy Football Scout Membership for the 2020/21 season.

The lead in the FFS Mods & Cons mini-league is shared by Ted Maw (aka Rotation’s Alter Ego) and Richard Beach (aka RedLightning), who both have 94 points. Ted starts the season as the reigning champion in the Mods and Cons after overtaking Mark Sutherns on a dramatic final day. Current joint-leader Richard is in his 11th season and has two previous top 4k finishes.

Joining the Mods and Cons league for the first time is John Pritchard (aka fclackless). John gains special entry after beating the Scout Picks by the biggest margin last season: 33 points (77 to 44) in Gameweek 10.

Sam Hopkins is the early pacesetter in RedLightning’s Top 10k Any Season mini-league with 122 points after captaining Sterling. Sterling’s hat-trick helped Sam to 463rd place overall. This is his ninth FPL season, with a previous best finish of 8,999. Managers with a top 10k rank in their season history may join the league using the code m0tq9y.

In Chaballer’s Top 1,000 HoF League Phil Olorenshaw is off to a flying start after he Triple Captained Salah. His 105 points also included double-digit contributions from both Sterling and Kane. This is Phil’s eighth season playing FPL and he has four top 10k end-of-season ranks, his best being 234 overall in the 2014/15 season. 

The number-one ranked manager in 2014/15 was Simon March (aka Dufflinks). Simon is running an exclusive mini-league called the FPL Champions League (aka Top 1 Any Season), a mini-league so exclusive that entry is only granted to former FPL winners!

The leader after Gameweek 1 is 2016/17 champion Ben Crabtree. Everton-fan Ben, who famously doesn’t pick Liverpool players, enjoyed a good start as both Sterling and Kane outscored Salah in the opening Gameweek. 

A total of 5,983 managers entered the FFS Head-to-Head Leagues, which are being run by Mark Reynolds (aka MIR) with support from Geoff, Mat (aka matzi11a), and Chris Atkinson (aka RMT’s Professor). There will be 300 leagues spread across 8 divisions with promotion and relegation taking place at the end of the season. 

In the FFS Eliteserien mini-league the leader going into Gameweek 18 is Svein Johansen with 1,189 points. Svein deployed his Rich Uncle chip in Gameweek 17 to make the most of a Double Gameweek. The Rich Uncle chip is similar to the Free Hit chip but gives managers an unlimited budget for one Gameweek only. 

Luke Dyer is in second place 16 points behind Svien, with Thomas Wickstrøm in third. Svein is currently fourth overall just 17 points behind new overall leader Håvard Gustad. 

In neighbouring Sweden, Daniel Sebestyen held onto his lead in the FFS Allsvenskan mini-league with Simon Eriksson 33 points behind in second place, and Niklas Tysander a further 16 points back in third. All three managers captained 51.3%-owned Muamer Tankovic (9.5m kr) who rewarded their faith with a goal.

Daniel is now 18 points off the overall lead despite slipping one place to fourth.

    At 11.31 how can I get Sterling into my team with 2 FT??

    Pope
    TAA Digne Walker
    Salah KDB Martial Perez Dendonker
    Kane King

    Heaton KWP Pieters Greenwood

      Without downgrading Kane or Salah and upgrading KDB it is difficult. Perhaps TAA to 4.5 and KDB to Sterling. Your money is very spread across your squad so hard to do easily in two moves.

      1. Erdogan
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 16 mins ago

        Even that won’t work with 2FT. Sterling is 12.1 now. This is a great example on how 0.1 price raise can cause a major headache.

          TAA to Lundstram?

    2. Pukki Party

      Kane out

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      4 months, 20 mins ago

      You will have to loose either Salah or Kane otherwise going to cost you alot of points.

        Looks like I will be Sterling-less until Wildcard

    Who remembers the fable of Ryan Taylor ?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 23 mins ago

      Always scored for Wigan against Newcastle so Newcastle signed him.

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 22 mins ago

        More his fpl days whilst Newcastle fans swore he would be dropped.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 19 mins ago

          And what happened, he wasn't ever dropped?

          1. Ginkapo FPL
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 15 mins ago

            Nope. Went from fullback to centre mid to right wing to playing of the striker. There was always a spot for Raylor somewhere.

    2. Moyeschester
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 22 mins ago

      Saylor & Raylor double up

  3. Razmataz
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 27 mins ago

    How likely is it that Aubameyang will start on the wing?

    1. CL4PTRAP
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 25 mins ago

      Team News on site says he is likely to start on the right wing with Laca up front.

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 25 mins ago

      I would say 50/50. Laca has a good chance of starting and Pepe would at least be on the bench again. I think for Auba, it doesn't matter much, he will still grab at least a goal.

    3. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 16 mins ago

      fairly high, much rather that than the team that played last week anyway

  4. AddyK

    Choose One to play

    Murray against West Ham
    Rico against AVL

    1. Lumberjack

      Murray

  5. Markus

    4 months, 26 mins ago

    What's everyone's Gw2 hopes and fears

    Hope: Newcastle beat Norwich with joelinton scoring and pukki blanking

    Fear: Pope penalty save after going Robinson for first 5 fixtures despite pope being better season pick

    1. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 25 mins ago

      I hope Burnley keep a clean sheet against Arsenal.

      Reckon that would probably be about the biggest potential FFS meltdown for the week.

      Not only do I hope this, but I think it's one of the more likely, unlikely outcomes

    2. Jealous Viper
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 24 mins ago

      Hope: Digne assist Siggy goal which somehow didn't happen last week. Very unlucky

      Fear: United attackers destroy Wolves(which would quietly please me actually as I'm a United fan)

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        4 months, 16 mins ago

        Wolves do not have the problems Chelsea have so not going to be that easy for UTD this time round.

    3. ebb2sparky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 22 mins ago

      Hope: United lose 3-0 and jota scores all 3
      Fear: Auba scores 2 or more

    4. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 18 mins ago

      Hope - Perez goes big vs Chelsea
      Fear - Mane stealing the show from Salah

      1. Markus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 17 mins ago

        With you there on both.

      2. FOO FIGHTER
        4 months, 15 mins ago

        Luckily both Mane and Salah can score. Salah can also provide assists.

        I would still go for Salah.

    5. SEYPULISIC
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 12 mins ago

      Hope : Jota finds his shooting boots.

      Fear : Salah/Sterling blanking with Kane/Auba haul.

    6. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months ago

      Hope: Bournemouth get medieval on Villa and Fraser and Wilson go ballistic in the process (sorry Kiwivillain, but I need points off those two)

      Fear: Salah captain fail as Mané grabs a brace and max BAPs.

    7. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 29 days ago

      Hope: Pukki and Auba party
      Fear: Salah hattie, Auba and Arsenal blank.

    So after one week who would you say to keep an eye on for budget midfielders

    1. ebb2sparky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 24 mins ago

      McGinn and Mount

    2. Markus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 21 mins ago

      Is difficult to tell currently tbh. I'd say:
      Perez
      Lanzini
      Almiron
      Buendia
      McGinn

      I think lampard's comments have confirmed mount/barkley will be too inconsistent minutes wise, as mount preferred but won't play every game.

      Dendonker a pretty decent starting option to monitor

      1. Markus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 18 mins ago

        Villa wingers to add to that too. And Robinson (sheff utd)

      2. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 18 mins ago

        I can understand why he would prefer mount who looks like a talented football unlike Ross Barkley who has now looked for several years like a poor man's James Milner who imagines he's gazza

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      4 months, 18 mins ago

      Do not rule out Trossard.

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre

      I'm on Heaton over Pope too.

      Any reason for Shaw & Deu on the bench?

      1. Jealous Viper
        • 1 Year

        Who would you advise I replace with. Think wolves will score and skeptical about Deu after last weeks performance and the early sub

  9. Delhidynamo

    every Trossard owner actually knows he's not gonna play again today right?

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 24 mins ago

      I am not confident tbh. I feel like I may pull the trigger before kick off.

    2. Tamagotchi Massacre

      Never ever trust a player whose an anagram of

      Dr R Ross's

      or

      R D R TOSSA

      he's an April Fool

          I’d be gutted again if he doesn’t play after being so proud of myself for not making a transfer after GW1.

    3. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 13 mins ago

      I think he’ll get minutes today, but likely going to be part of the package of players I ship to get Son in next week.

    4. teddy.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      He'll play and keep playing

    5. SEYPULISIC
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 9 mins ago

      Can see Gross play more minutes this season. Maybe 70% to Trossard 30% if Potter decides to rotate.

      1. The Pesci challenge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        They wouldn’t pay all that money to just stick him on the bench for most of the time. I think once they bed him he’ll be a mainstay

        1. SEYPULISIC
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          Hopefully, guys a baller. But when Potter need an extra midfielder don't you think Trossard will be the first to come off?

    Pick 2 to start from
    Moura,

        Interesting, Dendoncker currently last on my bench but will defo play Moura, can't leave 7.5 on the bench...

    2. Tamagotchi Massacre

        Really not sure why I bought ings. Had him twice last season. Got injured both times! Suppose I should play him whilst he's not injured so will for him and Moura. Thanks

        1. Nomar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 11 mins ago

          He’s usually good value whilst he’s fit. I had him in my team right up to the last minute of preseason, when I decided to get Jota instead.

      Don’t think Watford are as bad as they looked last weekend, to be honest.

    Perez and King walking the plank for me today. Another fail and they’re off

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 18 mins ago

      Perez is playing tomorrow though.

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 9 mins ago

        So technically that would be a Pérez fail today. I guess that means he’ll ship him out this evening then?

    2. Dannyb
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 18 mins ago

      Same, King will probably become Rashford one way or another

  14. Whats the Mata?
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 19 mins ago

    Thoughts on Cantwell? 4.5m listed mid playing behind Pukki.

    Could be a good test today to get him in gw3 as an enabler for other heavy hitters

    1. Jellyfish
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 17 mins ago

      I’m watching him too.

      Is he nailed? Isn't Hernandez their main winger?

      1. Whats the Mata?
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Onel Hernandez will also spend a significant period out following a freak accident. "He slipped over at home and fell on his knee. We have to check if there's something wrong with his anterior cruciate ligament. He is out for 3 months, may need surgery." #NCFC

    Do people actually fear rotation this early in the season? Seems a bit crazy to think Liverpool will manage Salah's minutes after just two games. Are we just overthinking this?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 mins ago

      Overthinking massively. Salah starts.

    2. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 mins ago

      Apparently Klopp said that Mane & Salah (also Kante) are not bothered by playing 120 minutes in heat.

    3. RECKLESS

      Salah ie the fittest pog around here. I remember he only was rested once that too for new year game when they had 3 matches in 6 . In that also he played from bench

  16. Miguel Sanchez

    Trossard brace to mix thing up today

    1. mynameisq

      Brace of minutes yes

      GW1 is always a bit of a freak, fully expect quite few posts tonight in a "why did I sell ? I should have sticked with..." manner.

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Like your thinking 🙂

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        4 months, 6 mins ago

        Agree re GW1 El Polako but had to use my FT on Haller for Jota.

        Got me money in the bank too so all in all think it was worth it if I want to get Kane GW3, that is if Vardy blanks again.

  17. ignis88
    • 2 Years

    What to do with Haller?

    Dendoncker 1st sub, Walker-Peters second.

    Considering the typical Spoilt french jerk Pogba is, he will try to push through real madrid move next season as well if it fails this time publicly at that. Pogba has 2 years on contract with option to trigger one year extension. Can Manutd hold him for 2 more years, trigger his extension forcefully and sell only if they get 150mn pounds?

    1. Tamagotchi Massacre

      I am looking forward to Moutino, Neves and Bolly schooling him on Monday

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 5 mins ago

      Yep
      He'll go to them next season for 120/130m £ + add ons imo
      I'd sell him & get two good CM's in a heartbeat tbh

      1. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        he is such a deluded shame. World cup win got to his head but he forgets it was due to great team around him not his performamces that brought them glory

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 29 days ago

          Yep
          Talented, but too much ego !!
          Not good for the team

  19. Ruinenlust

    Should I do Kane -> Aubameyang?

    1. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 15 mins ago

      Good God No.

      This is Arsenal you are talking about.

    2. RECKLESS

      lol. good one. they are Arse for a reason

    3. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years

      if you want, think about next week too obviously, depends if you have Salah and Sterling or not

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      4 months, 10 mins ago

      Why? Kane good have a stormer today and then you have to get him back afterwards.

      I want Kane GW3.

  20. unitednations

    1) For my draft team, start Perez (che) or C.Adams (LIV)?...already have vardy starting if that makes a diff

    2) Sterling or Salah cpt? i assume its just a 50/50 call with pros/cons to both choices

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      4 months, 11 mins ago

      Perez! Salah Cpt.

  21. Dynamic Duos

    Will Son play a lot more minutes this season?, 2033 is low.

    1. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 14 mins ago

      Should play more but still won't reach nailed on levels

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 13 mins ago

        But why isn't he nailed On? Surely he is their 2nd 3rd best player.

        1. mynameisq
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 11 mins ago

          He is one of their best players but we sometimes look too much from an fpl returns perspective, there's plenty of matched where he doesn't offer much so I think Poch will always rotate to an extent

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 mins ago

      Who knows what will happen in terms of injuries/suspension/form. But he will most likely start in GW 3 and has a nice run of fixtures.

    3. Dybala10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 11 mins ago

      Always seems prone to rotation no matter how good everyone thinks he is. Plus he never does well when I bring him in.

  22. mynameisq
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 15 mins ago

    Realised I have 0 players playing Sunday or Monday, never fun to watch those matches no matter what happens it's a rank killer

    1. ebb2sparky

      Don't look at your rank on Saturday night then

        Haha good idea

    2. Nomar

      I’ve got none playing tomorrow, but Jota, with Donk and Greenwood on the bench on Monday.

      I’ll be packing my case for my summer holiday next week on Sunday afternoon instead!

  23. Rock n Grohl

    Bottomed on last article.

    Salah, Siggy and Digne

    Or

    Mane, KDB and Coleman

    Have Auba and Sterling.

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      4 months, 13 mins ago

      Salah, Sig, Dinge

  24. TeddiPonza

  25. ZeBestee

    4 months, 13 mins ago

    Emaliano Buendia looks like a proper talent, but a bit wasteful in front of goal at times. He looks like he will be at least a top 10 player in a season or 2. At 22, he has a big room for improvement.

  26. Bonita
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 12 mins ago

    Anyone willing to Captain Siggy. Could easily score and assist if he's on fire.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 8 mins ago

      Hasn't got a great record vs Watford for whatever that is worth.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 6 mins ago

        No goals or assist in 10 starts vs the Hornets

        1. teddy.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          That's gotta be statistical anomaly.

          He must be due!

  27. datamunkey

    B is very tempting but may want a few games seen before committing to Slash > Mane

      • 9 Years
      4 months, 4 mins ago

      Haha. Cheers fella. Like that 9.5 price point of KDB to maybe Son or Pepe in the future once things settle. With Mane it's going to be the same again this year, need to face that some weeks Salah will haul and vice versa.

  28. Mr_Barbs

    Saving FT this week.Tempted to play Kelly.
    Should I stick or drop one of Moura,Tielemans or Jota for him?

    Pope
    TAA, Van Dijk, Digne, Zinchencko
    Salah(C), Sterling, Tielemans, Moura
    Jota, Wilson

    Button, Kelly, Dendoncker, Greenwood

  29. FISSH
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 8 mins ago

    This is actually a really really tough captain call.

    My guts leaning towards Sterling!

    A) Salah - Liverpool team will be fatigued
    B) Auba - may start on the wing or even bench??
    C) Sterling

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 mins ago

      B

    2. Arctic_Orangutans

      Auba bench... what?

  30. edwardsjon96
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 7 mins ago

    Start Ross Barkley or Martin Kelly? Unsure if Ross will start.

    1. FISSH
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 6 mins ago

      Ross

    2. Drop the Dendoncker
