Which of Burnley’s FPL assets appeal for their favourable fixtures?

Burnley sit top of our Season Ticker for the next ten Gameweeks, with their first fixture after the international break kicking off a run of matches in which they meet only one of the ‘big six’ (a far from watertight Chelsea side) between now and the end of November.

Those Fantasy managers who place a lot of emphasis on favourable fixture runs will, therefore, be surely considering a move for a Burnley asset or two ahead of Gameweek 5.

Sean Dyche’s troops have had a tricky start to the campaign but haven’t disgraced themselves so far, following up a 3-0 win over Southampton with a battling defeat at Arsenal and then a 1-1 draw with Wolves – a game they really should have had won before Raul Jimenez‘s (£7.4m) last-gasp penalty.

The Clarets were outclassed against Liverpool in Gameweek 4 but the Reds and Manchester City are already starting to pull clear of the chasing pack and again look to be in a class of their own following their dominance in 2018/19.

There is plenty of encouragement for Fantasy managers, then, particularly as Burnley are free of the Europa League commitments that plagued them at the start of last season.

The Clarets’ form had picked up at the back-end of 2018/19 with Dyche going back to basics with a settled side and a 4-4-2, an approach he has carried into this campaign.

Our Members’ article below looks at who the stand-out Burnley performers have been this season, asking whether Ashley Barnes‘ (£6.7m) form can continue and whether Dyche’s side can keep a handful of clean sheets over the coming months.

      nice, all basis covered I reckon

      Should be okay for GW5

    3. Kopkloppers

      Good side. KDB would be a choice due to lower cost and similar points ceiling. Never liked Mount

      double liverpool def overkill...suggest swap one to city def.
      midfield looks lightweight

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        5 months, 26 days ago

        Why is double Pool def overkill?

        You’d advise taking a Liverpool defender out before Newcastle at home?

          Sheesh, the state of advice on here 🙂

    Been tweaking my WC squad (naturally). Decided to maintain my triple-triple model. I started with Triple Liverpool/Everton/Wolves (and 2 City). Wolves didn't work out. Now it's triple Liverpool/City/Burnley, plus a short-term Hammer and a Villain for fixtures.

    I thought I'd be clever and get Wood rather than keep Barnes whom I'd got a couple of weeks back, but the latest FFS analysis has persuaded me to stay on Barnes.

    1. Wakanda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      wood probably on goal imminent table though

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 26 days ago

        Yeh, that's what swayed me in the first place, but the article on Burnley persuades me to pay the extra for Barnes.

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Ok thought process. You will only keep an eye on a few matches though.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 26 days ago

        Burnley are good until GW15 - that's long-term enough for me. Come the day, 2FT and a benching creates a new model.

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 26 days ago

          All have the capacity to get points. Burnley goes wrong then your team does too though

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 26 days ago

            Yeh, that's how I roll. Everton' defence's initial 2 clean sheets did me proud until it didn't!

            Pope will be busy with saves, so I'm happy with him.
            Tarkowski for the fixtures - if they disappoint he can go.
            Barnes - again, easy alternatives if he lets me down.

            1. Kopkloppers
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              5 months, 26 days ago

              Agree with you but maybe 1 probably Pope would do for me

    3. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Everton did not work out well too

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 26 days ago

        Like the French rugby team. Never know what you might get

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 26 days ago

          Yes, this is why I am going with Dilva for the next 2 over Digne... Surely there can't be any regrets, I believe

          1. Kopkloppers
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 26 days ago

            Digne looked poor last game

          2. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 26 days ago

            I've lost Digger too. But Dilva - wonderful player but how many minutes will he get? GW5 likely with no international but after that?

            1. Hakim Ziyech
              • 1 Year
              5 months, 26 days ago

              Yeah I might sell after gw 5. So more like a 1 gw punt. If he does not start the CL then no point selling

    Is there an injured Arsenal defender that will take Maitland-Niles starting spot, or does he have that locked in for now?

    1. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Bellarin.

      1. badgerboy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Should be returning to training some time this month.

      2. Cubillas
        • 8 Years

        Thanks, BB!

          De nada.

    2. Gonzola
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Is locked for now. They won't rush Bellerin back. Will play some cup games first, returning to prem November at the earliest.

  4. Cubillas

    Is there an injured Arsenal defender that will take Sokratis starting spot, or does he have that locked in for now?

    1. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I would consider the tea lady before him

      1. Cubillas
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 26 days ago

        LOL! Okay, but is there anyone injured that is expected to come back and take Sokratis starting spot?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1. Trossard or not Trossard

          FPL wise nothing special, in reality really, really great so far.

          • 3 Years
          5 months, 26 days ago

          Based on their returns so far though. I'm still not interested in owning Firmino despite a 9

          1. Kopkloppers
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            1st on my tesmsheat

            1. Andy_Social

              • 7 Years
              5 months, 26 days ago

              Virg is spending a lot of time in oppo penalty box - plenty assists and goals in him this year, I believe.

    5. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Points / Games / Price / PPGPM

      A VVD 19 4 6.5 (0.73)
      B TAA 22 4 7 (0.78)
      C Mo 36 4 12.5 (0.72)
      D Mane 25 3 11.5 (0.66)
      E Firmino 27 4 9.5 (0.71)
      F Matip 17 3 5.5 (1.03)

      If you go TAA, VVD, Mo you get all their corner assists plus all VVD’s attacking returns...

      Still reckon Robbo could come good though

      Penalties & selfishness will keep Mo firmly ahead of Mane on points, as it has done the last couple seasons

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Cannot disagree with anything you say

        Yep. basically, choose any and it could work out.
        Firmino remains a differential and by the scores posted here, could be worth a punt.

  6. HAMMERTIME107
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 26 days ago

    Coleman downgrade to best cheaper starting defender alongside Zinchenko and Robertson to get funds for Greenwood to Barnes up top??

    A | Pieters (Bha, Nor, Avl)

    B | Masuaku (Avl, Mun, Bou)

    C | Dunk (Bur, New, Che)

    D | Mings (Whu, Ars, Bur)

    E | Mepham (Eve, Sou, Whu)

    1. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      A if no Pope in the side

      1. HAMMERTIME107
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 26 days ago

        I actually think more points will come from attackers this year so goinbg with slightly weaker defence hoping it pays off?

        Team would be

        Adrian
        Zinchenko | Pieters | Robertson
        Salah | Mcginn | Sterling | Mount
        Barnes | Aubameyang | Haller

        Button | Dendoncker | Kelly | Rico

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 26 days ago

          A even with Pope.

          It's okay to have a relatively 'weak' defence like that but the problem is your 2 subs could be albatrosses if they are non-starters.

  7. Kopkloppers
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 26 days ago

    Its nice to have the stats but 4 games in there are distortions when big sides play. Spurs a case in point. I would take out the Citeh game for a more balanced view.

  8. Jacky boy
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 26 days ago

    Which one to replace awb with?

    A) VVD
    B) Otamendi
    C) Stones

    Pope
    TAA Robbo Digne AWB*
    Sterling KDB Son Martial Mount
    Haller

      1. Jacky boy
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 26 days ago

        What about getting vvd and swap digne to ota before they face city?

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 26 days ago

          no

          stop making so many trsfrs.

          And get more capt options.

          1. Jacky boy
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 26 days ago

            Maybe pepe for son later as an C option

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              5 months, 26 days ago

              not sure if that will help.

              The old stalwarts are Sterling/Salah/Kun/Auba

              Get 2 of those

    2. Wakanda

      triple liverpool def ?
      ota for potential header ...

      1. Jacky boy
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 26 days ago

        Vvd more attacking threats?

        1. Wakanda
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 26 days ago

          i agree vvd more attacking threats
          but you got too many eggs in one basket.. i will diversify

  9. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 26 days ago

    Oooohhhh

    Liverpool are away to Napoli 3 days after Newcastle

    Probably puts a dampener on the chances of a rout and/or 90’s for all of the forwards

    1. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Firmino Mane will be subbed early. Maybe Gomez gets game over Matip. Rest all will.play 90

    2. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Klopp never substitutes his strikers before 75th so it's more than enough. I will still c mo

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Mane and Salah have no International fixtures. I would be more worried about Sterling etc.

      1. Wakanda
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 26 days ago

        but his fixtures are so gooood

  10. Lingard’s Shin Guards
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 26 days ago

    Who’s more of a ‘must have’, TAA or Digne?

    Have 4 premiums at the moment and can’t fit in both just yet

    1. COK3Y5MURF - Unbelievable J…
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      TAA

    2. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Which are the 4 premium u have then if not these 2?! TAA is most imp by the way

      1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 26 days ago

        4 premium attackers*

        Sterling, Mane, KDB, Aguero

    3. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Trent ofcourse

    4. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Both

  11. RECKLESS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 26 days ago

    How nailed is Cantwell? He had horrible game vs Wham and was subbed for Kenny Mclean. Is his place a threat or pretty nailed till Onel Hernandez back in Decemeber?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      horrible? I believe he nearly scored?

      1. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 26 days ago

        Yeah thats worse as hqd 0 shot on target and no key passes as well. But you reckon he is nailed?

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 26 days ago

          I think he is nailed for now.

      2. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 26 days ago

        Missed a sitter. Horrible imo

    2. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Season keeper if he continues like that.

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      If he had scored that big chance v West Ham there’d be genuine panic over getting him

        Genuinely frustrated I didn't get him early. At 4.8, it's too much for a 5th mid. But priority was to get Kane in ahead of Newcastle game, right..... But maybe still viable as a 4th mid instead of McGinn, keeping Dendoncker as 5th?

      Curious what your WC team would look like since you are considering to use it. Gotta be a pretty damn good one

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 26 days ago

        I don't know why but I want to bring Aubameyang in. I have the feeling that he will score high.
        But then whom to sacrifice from my big hitters.
        Also want to go invest less in defence. Get rid of two pool defenders.

      Yeh you keep that all day long. Maybe a downgrade on Robbo or VVD to facilitate an upgrade on Cantwell or Greenwood.

  14. ZeBestee

    Watched the Everton game, and Mina was really threatening with his headers, almost scored as well. Digne is the best Everton defender but I can see Mina getting at least 3-5 goals this season if he keeps fit for the whole season. Wins majority of headers from corners.

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Digne can get points out of nowhere.
      Digne if you have the dilemma

    2. JonBoy
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      I think you're right. Got 3 in 10 starts (and 3 sub appearances) last season.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 26 days ago

        He is really good getting headers on set pieces, will soon get first goal of the season.

    3. Slitherene
      • 1 Year

      What do you think about Sigurdsson?

  15. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 26 days ago

    Looking ahead to GW 7 as it will help inform my next moves who do we think is the best captaincy option that GW?

    A) Salah (shu)
    B) Sterling/Aguero (eve)
    C) Kane (SOT)

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Salah or Kane. Everton play well against the top sides at home.

    2. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Maybe Tammy(BRI)?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 26 days ago

        What about Mount (BHA)?

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 26 days ago

          maybe

    3. JonBoy
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Salah at this point in time. Tottenham and Kane have quite a few alarm bells ringing right now.

      Interesting week for captaincy. Kane out of those options, but it could be a good week for Vardy. Need to look into it more.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Looks a week where it could be pretty split so taking a punt might not be as risky but weighing up whether to lose Salah in GW6 for a few GWs...

    5. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      D) Son (SOT) a good options I hadn't considered -arguably better than C

    Thanks for the article. Very useful. I have Pope and likley to double up with a DEF for the next few weeks.
    However, why did you not mention the full-backs at all? Pieters (4.6) & Lowton (4.5) give as cheap an entry to the Burnley defense as Pope does and Pieters has scored more fantasy points then anyone apart from Barnes so far, albeit due to a monster 14 pts in GW1 - but surely this should be analysed to whether Pieters can replicate his assists or whether GW1 was just a fluke.

    1. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years

      I've both Pope and Pieter's in my WC team. Big fan of Pieters, surprised Whoscored have him as weak on crosses.

      1. JonBoy
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 26 days ago

        It's the same with Andy Robertson! If the completion rate goes down that pops up.

        You get passing as a weakness with people with high key passes but low pass percentage too.

    What is this hype about city defenders? With Laporte out surely they won’t be that solid?

      Less ££ is appealing to many
      Can't get anyone myself so hopefully they lose CS every game 😛

    On a WC, who to drop out of Salah, Sterling, Aguero?

    1. Squeakybum99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 26 days ago

      Remember whoever you drop will haul

    2. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 26 days ago

      What does the rest of your team look like? Do you have other captain options?

    3. BigBillyBass
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 26 days ago

      If you're confident Aguero will still haul, I would drop Sterling

  22. Squeakybum99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    5 months, 26 days ago

    But Kun from that which is a blasphemy

  23. BigBillyBass

    How's this WC looking? Any changes? 0 ITB.

    Pope (Button)

    Salah KDB Mount McGinn (Cantwell)
    Aguero Haller Barnes

      love it! you're making me get Kun over Sterling also... What's your team value? I doubt I can squeeze the same people in.

      1. BigBillyBass
        • 1 Year

        Cheers mate! Squad value is 101.1 currently, with selling value of 100.0 on the nose.

          yup! surprisingly, my TV is 101.3 I can get the same but would go PvA over Ota for fun..
