    Who will get the most points of Wilson (WHU) or Abraham (BHA) this week?

    1. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Wouldn't take that hit

      Tammy but could go either way.

    3. Rasping Drive

      • 10 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      I will never forget selling Wilson in the season Bournemouth got promoted before a game against West Ham.

      Wilson scored a hatrick.

      1. Weasel Boy

      2 months, 13 days ago

      Probably B

    2. Drop the Dendoncker
      • 6 Years

      Butter chicken

    3. SEYPULISIC

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 13 days ago

      B by far

  4. FOO FIGHTER
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Chelsea 3rd worst defence in the League, not one clean sheet and Tomori a good option?

      Trap.

      1. Drop the Dendoncker
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Prefer butter chicken

      2. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Yep.
        A bit cheaper and it becomes a bargain. Why not get a reliant Robin instead of a Porsche and enter Le Mans.

      3. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Sorry, not a good option.

    • drughi
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      TV 100.6 and overall rank 1 mil, worse start since I started playing in 09/10 hopefully my patience will give me something back. But what wc team can I really have with that low TV.

      1. Drop the Dendoncker
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Go rogue

        1. drughi
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          which means ?

          1. Drop the Dendoncker
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Follow a different, less trodden path

      2. FOO FIGHTER
          2 months, 13 days ago

          If I were you I would go ultra attack on WC, have a look at which players are rising to chase TV.

          1. drughi
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Yeah as I said patience is often the key in this game but getting a bit worried, plan is wildcard ahead of gw 9. Hopefully some injuries and new prospects will emerge

        • Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Look at top 10k ownership...then bet against it

          Son, Auba, Ota for starters

          1. drughi
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Plan is wildcard gw 9 but are those players not highly owned ?

            1. Christina.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

              no....see below...click on tabs at top for ownership and combos

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Bobby F
            Wilson
            Richarlison/Siggy

          4. Kopkloppers
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            All 3 should be top 3 choices. Firmino also.

        • THFC4LIFE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          What’s the SV of your team?

        • Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Bet you could still have KDB Mane Son Abraham TAA and some cheaper decent picks with them.
          That's how I would approach it and hope the cheaper alternative to Salah Sterling Kun and Auba deliver.

          1. drughi
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            the thing is I have alot of faith in salah and sterling but yeah I guess I need to do something

            1. Kopkloppers
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

              Captaincy headache. Unless you get lucky with KDB as vice and Lund on the bench.

        • The Quad
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          I wouldn’t waste your wildcard now, as you said you’ll only get .6 above the 100m budget. Just play aggressive on next week with 2-3 transfers for price rises and use wildcard over international break.

      3. barracuda
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Morning fellas, would drop VVD for TAA for a hit?

        1. THFC4LIFE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Not for a hit

          1. barracuda
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Watch TAA getting 12, 6 for VVD this GW

            1. THFC4LIFE
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

              I fancy Shef to score

              1. Weasel Boy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years

        2. Drop the Dendoncker
          • 6 Years

      4. NoWayJose

        2 months, 13 days ago

        Pope (Button)
        TAA Otamendi Soyuncu (Tomori Lundstram)
        Sterling KDB Son Mount (Cantwell)
        Tammy Pukki Wilson

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Nice team. Shows what I can have if I dropped Mane for Mount until the fixtures turn.

      5. barracuda
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Second/last chance, would you drop Digne for TAA for a hit? WC in tact

          Is a sale value of 100.9m good or bad at this point?

          1. mookie
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Probably good, mine is 100,6m.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

            • 7 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

              Don't think so

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

              Digne Rico Robbo Zich could go for various reasons.

            • 3 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Best midfielder that costs 6.9 max to own for the next 2-3 weeks (until Maddison is fit) is McGinn correct?

            GTG Wildcard?

            Pope
            VVD - Otamendi - Soyuncu (lundstram, Rico)
            KDB - Salah - Son - Mount (Cantwell)
            Abraham - Firmino - Pukki

            0.0itb, would love to get either Robertson or TAA, and upgrade Cantwell. Best ways to do that?

            I know it’s probably a bit of extra work for you, but I wanted to say that I appreciate you putting the players’ shirt numbers in brackets with the Line-up lessons average positions!

            Also, why can’t you see who posted the articles (at least on mobile)?
