Scout Picks

Sterling and Aguero tipped for big scores by Gameweek 5 Scout Picks

We have spent the big bucks on our Manchester City attacking assets this week as they face a Norwich defence in dire straits.

This week the Scout Picks XI features three players priced over £12.0m but we have still managed to stick to our £83.0m budget.

Our 3-5-2 formation comes in at £82.9m, £0.1m inside the limit.

Goalkeeper

Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian has an appealing fixture this weekend

Adrian (£4.6m) was not selected by any of our Scout Squad pundits this week, but we’ve brought him in as an enabler. There was overwhelming support for a double-up on the Liverpool defence but we only had enough in our budget for one of their premium options. With Alisson still out injured, Adrian should keep his place in goal.

Defenders

Alexander-Arnold remains our chosen Liverpool defensive option ahead of Gameweek 5

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.1m) was the most popular Liverpool defender among our Scout Squad pundits. David, Paul and Geoff all selected him as the best option in this price bracket, Neale choosing him in second place. The right-back heads into an appealing meeting with a goal-shy Newcastle side and three assists in his first four matches. The potential for a double-figure haul, made up from returns at both ends of the pitch, continues to be high for Alexander-Arnold.

The inclusion of Matt Lowton (£4.5m) was a way of granting the request from our Scout Squad for Burnley defensive cover. Nick Pope was a popular choice but we had to go with Adrian in goal. Lowton comes in based on Burnley’s clean sheet potential for a trip to Brighton, and having created more chances than any of his defensive colleagues so far this season.

John Lundstram (£4.2m) continues to make a useful budget enabler for Fantasy managers. Sheffield United remain one of the tightest-looking defences in the Premier League, having allowed just 22 shots in the box across the first four Gameweeks (fifth-best). Meanwhile, Lundstram himself is behind only two players in the top flight for big chances created.

Midfielders

Sterling should enjoy his trip to Norwich on Saturday afternoon

Despite a blank against Brighton, Raheem Sterling (£12.3m) is straight back in the Scout Picks. After the first four matches of the season, the Manchester City midfielder is still just one behind the current Golden Boot front-runner with five goals and during that time, no player has been afforded more big chances. Meanwhile, Norwich’s defence looks in tatters for Gameweek 5. They have conceded more than any other side so far and are likely to be without at least three centre-backs in Ben Godfrey, Christoph Zimmermann and Timm Klose this weekend. Furthermore, right-back Max Aarons has been ruled out, Grant Hanley is unlikely to be able to feature from the beginning and Tim Krul is also a doubt to start now.

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) was the most popular midfielder for Gameweek 5, tipped as the best in this position by three of our pundits, David selecting him in second place. In both of his Premier League matches at Anfield this season, the Egyptian registered a double-figure haul and he will be fancying his chances against Newcastle. The Magpies might have the ability to frustrate top six sides, as they did at Spurs in Gameweek 3, but Salah still got three attacking returns against them last season.

Mason Mount (£6.4m) is one of a handful of mid-price midfielders who appear to have the ability to offer decent value this season. He has two goals so far and could have arguably had more than that. Ahead of a trip to Wolves, the Chelsea midfielder has registered the same number of shots on target as Sterling, and more than any other option priced at £6.5m or below.

The absence of some key personnel for Manchester United should both help Daniel James‘ (£6.1m) chances of starting and increase the need for him to deliver. In the last two matches, the value midfield option has had seven shots inside the box, the second-most in the whole division. With Leicester yet to keep a clean sheet on the road so far this season, James looks a good bet for more attacking returns this weekend.

John McGinn (£5.6m) is the final member of our value midfield trio as he prepares to face West Ham on Monday night. With attacking returns in two matches so far this season, the box-to-box option will fancy his chances against a Hammers’ defence that has conceded more big chances than any other side so far.

Forwards

We’re backing Aguero to have another enjoyable afternoon in Gameweek 5

Our Scout Squad panel was unanimous in selecting Sergio Aguero (£12.1m) as the best forward option for Gameweek 5. That decision was reached even before the Norwich defensive situation got worse on Friday afternoon. The Argentinian has scored in every match this season, currently leading the Golden Boot race, and is likely to deliver even if he has his minutes managed in light of Gabriel Jesus’ return from fitness simply because Norwich’s problems at the back are so bad.

Sébastien Haller (£7.5m) completes our line-up ahead of a trip to face Aston Villa on Monday night. Dean Smith’s men have allowed more shots than any other side so far this year, while Haller has three goals in his last two matches.

Substitutes

Nick Pope (£4.6m) was the most popular budget goalkeeper in our Scout Squad submissions but we had to bench him to accommodate our Liverpool defensive double-up.

We were also able to work in some Manchester City defensive cover so Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.6m) has to be content among the substitutes. With Norwich unlikely to park the bus against them, there is perhaps still a slight chance that they find a way through.

Manuel Lanzini (£6.5m) gets a place on the bench as a cheap alternative West Ham’s centre-forward. The midfielder has created more chances than any of his colleagues so far this season.

Ashley Barnes (£6.7m) has impressed in the early part of the campaign but we ran out of money to get him in the Scout Picks starting XI. 

The Captain

As we have mentioned many times since the season began, the Scout Picks now has a captain for the 2019/20 campaign.

This skipper is chosen using the conclusions of the latest Captain Sensible article and a four-way vote between David, Neale, Paul and Geoff.

Because the use of Fantasy Football Scout data is used so heavily in this process, the captain we choose each Gameweek will be known only to those who have signed up to Membership for the 2019/20 season.

It will be revealed to the public only when the deadline for the Gameweek has passed.

The Community Champion

Representing the community against the Scout Picks in Gameweek 5 is Warby84.

They have gone for a 4-3-3 of Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Otamendi, Maitland-Niles, Lundstram; De Bruyne, Salah (c), McGinn; Aguero, Haller, Vardy.

The community member who beats our picks by the biggest margin over the campaign will win a £100 Amazon Voucher and a place in our Contributors and Moderators League for the following season.

It was a defeat for the Scout Picks in Gameweek 4 as InsaneFC won by a 75-64 scoreline.

That makes his winning margin of 11 points the new score to beat for the 2019/20 season.

    Who to bench (1 on the bench, the other two to play)?
    A) Lundstram
    B) Mina
    C) Pukki

    1. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Lundstram

    2. JackQualt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Mina

    3. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Bench Lund
      Captain Mina
      Sell Pukki

    4. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I’d bench Mina.

    5. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I would bench Pukki myself, not saying he can't score against city, but I think Norwich getting a goal is less likely to happen than the other 2 getting a clean sheet and possible attacking returns.

  2. Rust Cohle

    Haller and Mané > Auba & Pepe -8

    Insanity?

    1. La vida FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Yes

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      it's comedy

    3. Soto Ayam
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Pretty much

    4. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Are both Haller & Mane injured for a long time?

    5. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I do like a maverick transfer, but you are right, that is just madness.

    6. BrooklynGooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      If you’re going to go crazy, might as well captain Auba while you’re at it.

    7. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Would you be bothered in the slightest if Haller and Mane scored braces and Watford won 1-0?

      If not then do it, as it’s right for you.

      1. Rust Cohle
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        The thought of 1-0 to Watford seems about as possible as Norwich drawing against City.

    8. Rust Cohle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Template is so boring. Just looking for maverick madness. With pool v magpies and hammers v villains, probably not the week for it.

    9. Rust Cohle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Also I love the visceral reaction to this post. Good engagement.

  3. JabbaWookiee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2 months, 3 days ago

    Ok bear with me. Think I’ve found a way to fit Kun, Salah, Sterling, KdB and TAA into my WC on a 3-5-2

    Adrián / Button
    TAA / Tarkowski / Lundstram (Kelly / Hanley)
    Salah / Sterling / KdB / Cantwell / Guendouzi
    Aguero / Barnes (Greenwood)

    Too unbalanced? I realise the bench is hopeless.

    1. Mike Bassett Fantasy Manage…
      2 months, 3 days ago

      u plan to play Cantwell, Guendouzi, Lunds and Tarkowski every week?

      1. Slitherene
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 3 days ago

        If yes, then kindly change your name to JabbaRookiee!

        1. JabbaWookiee
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Taxi for Slitherene

    2. Sam (Team Sam)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Definitely too unbalanced.

      Also, watch out for the bear.

    3. Rhinos
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      3 4m defenders is asking for trouble esoecially when one won't play

      1. JabbaWookiee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        So who’s most expendable of the big hitters?

        Drop Aguero (as much as it pains me) and I can do this:

        Adrián / Button
        TAA / Digne / Lowton / Lundstram / Hanley
        Salah / Sterling / KdB / Mount / James
        Haller/ Barnes / Greenwood

    4. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Starting Lun, Cantwell and Guen for me week in week out isn't worth it.

    5. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Adrian and Button

      Then I stopped reading

    6. moment
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      My WC team is very similar:
      Heaton - Button
      AMN - TAA - Pieters - Lund - Rico
      Salah - KDB - Sterling - Cantwell - Dendonck
      Aguero - Barnes - Greenwood

      It's less balanced than the other teams I auditioned with 2 of the City attackers, but I figure it's actually not that hard to rebalance with a couple of transfers as so much value is tied up in Raz / Aguero. Will probably do Aguero to Auba in 2 weeks anyway.

  4. Slitherene
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Gtg?

    Pope
    VvD Digne Zinchenko
    Salah KdB (c) Son Sigurdsson
    Callum Ayew Pukki
    Heaton Soyuncu Diop Stephens

    Hoping the bench order and (c) choice is right!?

    1. Artemis Titans
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Kdb (c) for me too.

    2. PrettyDick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      looks good

  5. Sam (Team Sam)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Still can't decide on my Trossard replacement

    A) Iwobi
    B) Ceballos
    C) McGinn
    D) Other

    Annoyingly, it would be for a hit. I've got too many flags this week to risk not bringing in someone

    1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin

      Yarmolenko

      1. PrettyDick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        agree

    2. La vida FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Any of those look great. Go with your gut

    3. Slitherene
      • 1 Year

      Iwobi

    4. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Think I’m going Ceballos but James a good shout as well

      1. Sam (Team Sam)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        James definitely a good option, but stupidly I have 3 United players currently (Wan-Bissaka, Martial, Greenwood).

  6. La vida FPL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Dendonker > Ceballos for -4?

    Puts lundstram on the bench and gives me much better attacking options going forward

    1. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      No

    2. Down with this sort of thin…
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Think it's worth getting him in eventually, more chance he returns this weekend than Dendonker.

    3. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I’d start Lundstram and leave the hit.

      1. No Professionals

        2 months, 3 days ago

        This

    4. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Not for a hit

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

      no

  7. ChickenTikkaMoSalah

    When Sterling was benched last season, who replaced him? Was it Sane?

    1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 3 days ago

      Yup

    2. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      V Huddersfield (6-1) Sterling was unused sub and Sane came on 76mins)

      Pep played Jesus and Aguero up front

    3. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      V Burnley (5-0) Sane started and Jesus came off bench leaving Sterling to warm the bench.

    4. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year

      V Cardiff (2-0) sterling unused sub. Aguero injured. Sane and Jesus started

          Got it on Aguero and I'm pretty sure that's where it will stay.
          Who you thinking?

            ah luck you! that's an easy choice. Am on Sterling but Salah VC. Sterling benching is the concern but Norwich looks an absolute tear up for City this week

    Will Martial drop tonight or is his price protected due to injury?

    1. Rhinos

      Martial will be 8m by gw6

    2. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅

      His price is protected by FPL just because they don't want him to drop.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Un fecking believable how he has survived price drops with many others dropping because of WC's?

    3. michudagawd

    Did Sterling come on much in previous seasons when he was benched against easy opponents etc before champ league ties?

    1. Rainer

      If the games won, don't expect to see him.

      FPL Surgery podcast has some stats about how much he’s played after internationals, tends to not be 90 mins, but does get 70 frequently

  14. batmaniac

    2 months, 3 days ago

    Anybody considering Tarkovski? Considering the chat they guys had about him on the scoutcast.
    Or is maitland niles an option as an attacking wing back with Arsenals upcoming fixtures?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Don't think he's worth 0.5m more than Lowton.

      Arsenal can't defend & Bellerin shouldn't be too far off so I wouldn't touch AMN.

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Burnley defenders don't get passing BPS so generally aren't great for CS BAPs, which is why Pope is so popular. Another reason not to spend extra.

            Top (near) of a sorry looking bunch this season, no Alonso 🙁

            You know he'll score when you bench him too 😉

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years

              Oh I wouldn’t bench him if paying 5.0! With those fixtures I wouldn’t want too either.

              I get the downsides, but if someone has the cash he’s very intriguing !

      Honestly if I could fit him in, I would. Stats look good, Burnley look good.

      I wouldn’t even mind him with Pope

        I have 5.4 left for one def spot on wc.
        Looking at Soyncu like everybody else but wouldnt mind a differential either.
        Would have to start Soyncu too though so not convinced.

          2 months, 3 days ago

          Ota. Tark. Soy. All good.

          I’d say Soy is one if you don’t need to start immediately.

    3. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Get Pieters instead.

      1. batmaniac
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Fair point.

  15. Wijnaldum FC
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    James or Mount.?

    1. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Mount

    2. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      James because of fixtures. After 2gws Mount.

      1. KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Thinking the same, not 100% set though, without pogba and martial, man utd could be a mess against leicester!

  16. RichRover
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Who should I start?
    A. Ederson.
    B. Pukki.
    My gut says B. Other gk is Ryan.
    Thanks.

    1. JackQualt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Not sure how these two are competing for a starting place?

    2. JackQualt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Ignore me; being an idiot

    3. JackQualt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Tough one, Ryan isn’t a bad option but I do feel Norwich won’t even be able to get the ball let alone score a goal

  17. JonnyOnionRings
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Sterling or Salah Captain?

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Sterling

    2. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Sterling

    3. KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Heads or tails

    4. KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I'll probably go with Sterling though for that Norwich defense situation

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

      KDB?

  18. wildnothing

    1 ft 0.7 itb.

    Pope Henderson
    Digne Emerson AWB Burn Lundstram
    Sterling KDB Martial Mount Cantwell
    Agüero Pukki Barnes

    A. Save and play Cantwell and pray that Barnes play to get 11 players
    B. Martial to Lanzini
    C. Agüero/Martial to Haller/Salah for a hit

    Evening gents !

    Got many Sterling TC on here ?

    1. creative
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Too scared of the rotation

      1. Flapjack
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        See I’m anxious but no more than normal. I think he plays

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Good ebening.

      Not really.

      1. Flapjack
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Hello mate! Fair enough ha

        1. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Can see some are doing it on twitter. Here, managers have a bit of fear of this game. 😉

          1. Flapjack
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            I’m wondering if my summer move to Twitter has made me less cautious.. 😉

            1. ZeBestee
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              I like twitter fpl community tbh, as much as the veterans in here. Issue is many newbies in here nowadays, be careful who you listen to. 😉

                2 months, 3 days ago

                FPL Twitter accounts are all the same I reckon.. Just like YouTube channels..Only they stick FPL in front of their names and blow a few stats they stole from OPTA out their arse and people think they are supreme..A few good podcasts though I have to admit

    3. Twitter: @Ze_Austin

      Hovering over the button...

      1. Flapjack

        • 7 Years

        Same as me ..! I said this last week. This feels more tempting.

    4. Optimus.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Nah, not with the risk of rotation

    5. Rinseboy
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      still trying to get comfortable with just captaining him!

    6. Would Ed Woodward
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I've seen a few, how are you mate?

      1. Flapjack
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        I’m well! Just stressing over this TC or not ha.

        How’s your season ?

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Utterly awful but looking on the bright side, almost certainly can't get worse. I did Vardy > Kane(C) (-4) after GW2, sums it up.

          1. Flapjack
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Oh mate sorry to hear that. Chin up.

            GW2 was my highlight as I captained Pukki.. but apart from that it’s been quite bland

            Early days plenty of time to claw it back! 34 to go starting tomorrow eh

    7. KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…

      No, last game City scored 4, but how many points did Sterling score?

    2. Optimus.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Both

  21. Tsparkes10

    2 months, 3 days ago

    Gtg if I do AWB to Ota?

    Hendo
    VVD Digne Montoya Ota Diop
    Salah KDB Sterl
    Pukki Wesley
    (Stek, Greenw, Dendonk, Martial)

  22. golly28
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Which is better:

    A) Salah | Firmino | Abraham

    Or

    B) Mane | Aubameyang | Barnes

    1. creative
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

    3. Darth_Newdar

      Probably B

  23. Mike Bassett Fantasy Manage…

    im expecting such an average/low scoring gw for my team.
    It will be so boring 🙁

  24. KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…

    2 months, 3 days ago

    Bottomed,
    WC:

    Pope - Button
    Otamendi - Matip - Digne - Lundstram - *X*
    Salah - Sterling - KDB - *X* - *X*
    Barnes - Pukki - Haller

    XXX =
    A) Mount + Hanley + Dendoncker
    B) James + Hanley + Cantwell/Dendoncker/Guendouzi
    C) James + Kelly + Dendoncker/Guendouzi
    D) McGinn + Hanley/Kelly + Cantwell/Dendoncker/Guendouzi

    James' next 2 fixtures look better than Mount's, that's why I'm considering.

    1. golly28
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      C for me

      1. KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Thanks, how is Kelly's injury ? Is there any info about when he's expected to return ?

    2. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      D with Cantwell

  25. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    F.Anderson or Lanzini? Anderson wins basically all underlying stats metrics except chances created (although he has 3 big chances created compared to Lanzini’s).

    Lot’s of love for Lanzini but I’m not sure why he’s THAT preferred over Anderson?

  26. Pete Price The Lizard
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Up for work in less than 5 hours the off to the match at Anfield so won't have time tomorrow to sort it out pick which is the best long term WC team outta the two:

    Team A)

    Adrian
    Lundstram Soyuncu VVD
    Iwobi KDB Salah (©) Sterling (VC)
    Jota Pukki Vardy

    Subs:Button, Douglas Luiz,Masuaku & Kelly

    Team B)

    Adrian
    Digne Lundstram VVD
    Ceballos Luiz KDB Salah (©) Son
    Aguero (VC) Pukki

    Subs:Button,Pieters, Greenwood & Kelly

    Any suggestions and feedback is welcome again thanks 🙂

  27. Darth_Newdar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Bring in Barnes for which one? Currently thinking King, on the basis that Jota is the better player, and should be able to translate his Europa League form into the Premier League at some point.

    A) Jota

    B) King

    1. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I would say king, as you say Jota the better player, and king doesn't look like scoring other than penalties.

  28. FlockofSeagulls
    • 2 Years

    Hi everyone!

    I need some help on WC please.

    A) Sterling, Van Dijk, Barnes

    1. Darth_Newdar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      A

    2. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Hard one, both great options, I would go B if pushed to pick one.

    3. Slitherene
      • 1 Year

      A

  29. Clinton19
