Is it time to sell Barnes as Wood hits form for Burnley?

Ashley Barnes (£6.6m) has now gone four consecutive matches without an attacking return.

With so many blanks in a row, his owners are likely looking at whether they should be offloading the Burnley forward ahead Gameweek 8.

That said, the Clarets do face another favourable fixture this weekend as Everton come to Turf Moor. The Toffees have conceded at least twice in each of their last five matches.

However, the complicating factor in assessing Barnes’ potential is the recent form of Chris Wood (£6.2m).

Since the former Brighton and Plymouth Argyle striker last found the net, Wood has scored three times.

Is that a trend that will continue in Gameweek 8? We’ve assessed some of the most recent matches to find out whether Barnes is worth holding or if his colleague Wood is hogging the spoils at Burnley.

Has Barnes been unfortunate not to score recently?

    Best move with 1FT & 0.1itb. Still got WC.

    A. KDB >> Son
    B. Greenwood+Salah >> Auba+Yarmolenko (-4) (Bench KDB)
    C. Save.

    Pope
    TAA • Zinch • Digne
    Salah • Sterling • KDB • Mount • Cantwell
    Pukki • Abraham
    (Heaton, Lunds, Greenwood, Rico)

    1. antis0cial
      • 4 Years

      I'd be tempted to save, reassess KDB after IB, hopefully just miss the one game

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        A lot of money on the bench though especially as I still have my WC

        1. wasp3000
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          It;s only 1 game

    2. Silent Hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Save

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        A Zinch no show and I could be playing Rico and Lundstram. With plenty of money on my bench. Doesn’t seem wise to me

        1. wasp3000
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Zinch should start and Lund v Watford is a fine pick

    3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      I think B is wasteful if you are definitely wildcarding but then I'm tempted too. I'm now tempted to just do Cantwell to Yarmolenko for 1wk and wc next week. Not ideal but hey.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Not a fan of that move

    Who would you captain out of this lot? Thinking sterling....

    Adrian

    Tomori /Lowton / Lundstram

    Salah / Sterling / Mount / Son

    Pukki / Abraham / Auba

    1. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Auba, I'm on Sterling but don't own Auba

      1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Really a coin toss between those two. Good news is that you have both of the standout (c) options this week

  3. antis0cial
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    I've had KDB since the start (so lots of value tied up), I presume no need to panic, keep and see how he is after IB? Still have WC if needed.

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Looks like you have answered your own question 🙂

      1. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Hah fair point, just after confirmation really, if there was lot's of "hell no get rid", I may have to reconsider 😛

    2. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years

      Yep.

    3. Murder On Zidanesfloor

      ye

    4. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Now that Pep has said he should fit after IB he's definitely a hold.

      FPL won't let his price fall as he was anyways under valued.

      1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        And even casuals will surely think twice before removing the top scoring FPL asset

        1. antis0cial
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Quite a few on here look like they are contemplating shifting KDB on, I'm hoping he's a season keeper!

      2. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Pep is a liar. 😉

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Pep is saving face. His comments about KDB are vague.

          I hardly hold onto injured players. It costs you points like those who held on to Martial. Lol, there are still people hanging onto Martial...

          1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            The difference here is

            Ole said: We hope to have him back after IB.

            Pep said: He will be fit after IB.

            I sold Martial that week but keeping KDB.

            1. Jam0sh
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              9 months, 7 days ago

              December is also after international IB

            2. FOO FIGHTER
              9 months, 7 days ago

              Not me when I will have to play Cantwell until Pep decides when KDB is ready to play full 90 again...

  4. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    Barnes and Kdb to auba and mcginn free?

    1. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Much value tied up in KDB?

      If not - I'd do it, but you need a fast way back.

      1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        9.7 pp

    2. Krionos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      I have a real issue with transfers like this. How will you get KDB back if you have value tied up into him? I can understand a 1 week punt on Mahrez instead of KDB, but transferring him out without the option to get him back quickly is unwise, imo...

  5. Pompel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    Kun + KDB owners, what are you doing this GW:

    a) Sticking with both
    b) Selling KDB. For whom?
    c) Selling Agüero. For whom?

    I'm afraid neither starts this GW, might do Kun > Auba myself.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      C looks likely - have dismissed Kun as a captaincy option this GW so probably time to lose him

    2. MTPockets
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Probably B, but hoping for another update on friday

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Think I will keep KDB this GW and assess over IB. Have had him from the start, so too much value tied up

        1. MTPockets
          • 11 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Same but I don't have any decent subs

    3. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Leaning towards C for Auba

    4. Penang Sandman
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      just did Mane > Sterling 😀

  6. Christina.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    Look at Vardy's stats week 1-3 vs 4-6 vs wk 7.... 😯

    vardy vs Livp:

    Last 7 games
    7 goals

    😉

    1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      He's going to score isn't he. There go TAA CS points

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Im surprised how many def errors Livp have made...2nd most

        1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Its because of TAA and Robbo. Wide open spaces, very lucky not to concede last weekend

          1. Christina.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            yep, Adrian also shaky

        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          How many were Adrian, Southampton springs to mind

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Adrian directly that is...

            Then there's Adrian indirectly... the shakiness he generates can't help but permeate the defence

            Allison is going to be a gargantuan upgrade in defensive performance

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              9 months, 7 days ago

              Adrian has actually been quite good. Just not an FPL option...

      2. FOO FIGHTER
        9 months, 7 days ago

        TAA makes it up with attacking returns.

        His GW points so far 5, 1, 5 11, 2, 7, 6.

        Only 2 cleanies in the above figures. Let's face it, you do not own TAA just for cleanies at over 7.0m.

        1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          No one debated against that lol

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            9 months, 7 days ago

            🙂

        2. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          I own TAA thks.

          Thats not my pt though.

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            9 months, 7 days ago

            I know lol. Just pointing out why one should not look at TAA's price 🙂

      3. Krionos
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        I think this typically could be a CS for Liverpool. Leicester are tough to break down and dangerous on the counter. Klopp will be aware of this, so perhaps they will approach this game more cautiosly. 0-0 incoming!

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          However, Leicester’s great form actually stretches back to when Brendan Rodgers became their manager last season.

          In fact, since Rodgers’ first game in charge in March, Leicester have won 31 points in the Premier League.

          This total has only been eclipsed by Liverpool (49) and Manchester City (43) in the same period.

          1. RichardNixon
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            The gap between City & Liverpool with the rest is incredible. Leicester a genuine crack at the top 4. Spurs, Arsenal, Utd all struggling and Chelsea will also be inconsistent I reckon.

          2. Amey
            • 1 Year
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Boom
            Great stat
            More concerns for my Vardy less team 😀

          3. Krionos
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            I'm not really sure how this goes against my argument... I'm aware of this and that's why I am saying this game could be close? 😀

            1. SADIO SANÉ
              • 5 Years
              9 months, 7 days ago

              yeah I can't see TAA/Robbo buggering off so far in this game - also Leicester might be in for a repeat of GW5 ... of course they very well could score, but a tight 1/2-0 wouldn't surprise me at all

  7. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    I thought it was just a dream but I did sell Aguero for a hit last night in a random drunken move!
    Aguero + Zaha to Kane + Mahrez
    ...this is going to bite me in the ass isn't it lol

    (I was hacked, that was it...hate these hackers!)

    1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Ohh. So close. If only Kane was Auba

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Haha, yup, will prob wish I'd gone Auba over Kane but damage is done now!

    2. MTPockets
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Quite possibly. Bernardo subbed early re. this gw and Mahrez has late international with Algeria re. next one

      1. jia you jia you

        😀
        This
        Agreed

    5. Klein
      • 4 Years

      @jia
      Its just one more drunken hit away from what you would want.

    6. Hakim Ziyech

      Oh man you drink too much 🙂

  8. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    Ugh.. aguero making me nervous but can't really transfer him out unless it's a -4 which feels terrible

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Could go aguero + KDB to vardy and Sterling? -4... Thoughts?

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Exactly what Im considering.

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          You're on a heater so I'll do it if you do it 😆 keep me updated!

          1. Christina.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            will do

        2. No Professionals
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Same here.

          Or KDB and Salah to sterling and son.

          1. Brosstan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Yes that was my original plan bur Spurs looks like a dark green fixture for salah now!

          2. FOO FIGHTER
            9 months, 7 days ago

            KDB to Sterling makes sense.

            Salah to Son? Did you watch the Spurs game last night 😮 No thanks.

    2. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      I would do that move if you have a plan to get KDB back

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Sterling->kdb

        easy

        1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Nice

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Yeah, that is what I am thinking.

        3. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Will lose some value, but points over value I guess

        4. Giggs Boson.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Sterling is bossing the xG from open play, even over all forwards. I could never ditch him while he's fit...

  9. Eat my goal!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    9 months, 7 days ago

    If KDB is out this GW it saves the play cantwell or Lunds debate - keeps things nice and simple!

    1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      And Cantwell vs McGinn debates as well. At least 5K less comments on here before the deadline

  10. Giggs Boson.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    Gnabry's 4 goals overshadowed an outstanding display from Lewandowski. Thought he was was incredible. He's the kind of striker I would pay 13.0m for in FPL.

    1. Stormbringer22
      9 months, 7 days ago

      I was just saying that to the lads at work. I know Gnabry scored 4, but it was all about Lewandowski for me. Outstanding lad every year!

      1. Jordan.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        same as aubameyang used to be at dortmund,great strikers..

  11. Brooksy86
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    Have Dilva and KDB... Worth benching them both for Cantwell and Lund?

    1. Giggs Boson.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      I would start Dilva and Cantwell personally.

      No way KDB is starting, surely.

  12. Stormbringer22
    9 months, 7 days ago

    If I was to sell KDB for this week and buy him back after the IB I stand to make 0.2 on this endeavour. Question is - do I go for
    A. Mahrez or
    B. Dilva
    as a 1 week replacement? I just know whichever one I pick will get rested by Pep and I would have wasted an FT on a bench warmer. Or just play Cantwell and save my FT?

    1. Stormbringer22
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Having said that, likelihood is KDB doesn't fall in price in 2 weeks to actually make any money on taking him out and bringing him back in. Probably will just end up holding and playing Cantwell.

  13. Hazz

      Yeah, I got Barnes in GW5. Ditched him after two games. Was definitely a mistake 😕

      I did consider going Wood instead at the time because he was getting better chances, but I heard many compelling arguments here. Need to have more conviction in my own research!

    3. Concrete

      1. Nigel Knows

    Allows Pukki to Vardy after the break

    Y or N

      Salah to Yarma?

      You do know Salah is the highest owned player after Pukki?

              I look at the points table and then look at Yarma vs Salah.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      That or 0.2 tops but think FPL will manipulate his price cause he looks underpriced this year.

    Anyone thinking that KDB looks like player of the year this season ?

    Also i think KDB has minor injury, probably will be rested for the weekend, but after that will continoue with amazing form and progress...

      Liverpool fan here and think KDB is definitely POTY so far this season.

      As for injury I have no idea and i'm an owner too

      Hopefully it's minor. Not totally clear whether current issue is groin or ankle knock reported later
