Which of Leicester’s FPL assets appeal for their favourable fixture run?

Having been bottom of our Season Ticker for fixture difficulty over the first eight Gameweeks of the season, Leicester City are about to embark on much more favourable run of matches.

Over their next nine games, the Foxes meet only one ‘big six’ team (Arsenal), play two newly promoted clubs and face five of the sides that finished in the bottom half of the Premier League table in 2018/19.

Five of Leicester’s next nine fixtures are at home, too.

As a result, Brendan Rodgers’ side sits top of our Season Ticker between Gameweeks 9 and 17.

Interest from the Fantasy community in Leicester’s assets is hotting up ahead of this appealing sequence of games.

Ricardo Pereira (£6.2m) is currently the most-bought Fantasy Premier League defender of Gameweek 9, while James Maddison (£7.2m) and Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) are the third-most-transferred in players in their respective positions, too.

The Foxes currently sit fourth in the Premier League table despite facing the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United (insert your own jokes here about the fall from graces of some of these once-great sides) in the opening two months of 2019/20, so interest from an FPL perspective is clearly merited based on recent results alone.

What do the underlying statistics say about Leicester assets, though? We delve into the numbers in our latest Members article below.

      Brighton lads vs. Lundy the only question mark. Very nice team.

        Aye I just always get him wrong so figure until further notice play him and maybe Connolly or Montoya get a return as subs.

        May go connolly in the end mind.

        Cheers

      play Connolly for Lunda

    Yarmolenko the best option in his price bracket?

    1. Offs!de
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      within 6m? may be yes

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

      Hudson Odoi should emerge soon.

    3. ZimZalabim
      • 3 Years

      I own him and McGinn and have to get rid of one cant decide which to keep
      Yarmolenko has better fixtures
      got McGinn at 5.5 and he does pick up returns away from home

      Wilson is also a good option for the next few at 6.1

      These three probably the best mids in this price bracket

    4. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)

      Trossard might be if he returns this week. All those 5.8ish players come with risks but McG and Yarmolenko are at least quite secure.

    No news at all on the Bilva potentiel ban so far?
    Has he appealed ?

    1. ZimZalabim
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      they extended his time to appeal

      was supposed to be the 9th been pushed back to next week not sure on the exact date

    Going forward, I know I want Salah, De Bruyne, Abraham and C Wilson.

    Alongside those:
    A) Aguero, Mount, Maddison, Tomori [4 transfers]
    B) Vardy, Sterling, Cantwell, Tomori [4 transfers]
    C) Aubameyang, Mount, Maddison, Otamendi [4 transfers]

    Thoughts on Callum Hudson-Odoi?

    1. Offs!de
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I like him much but currently I am on Mount and Tammy.

    2. mynameisq

      Looks like lampard backs youth, get him in his price will only rocket. Great fixtures, was one on one a couple of times last game

      1. RashFraud
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        I'm only worried about his rotation with Willian, Pedro, Pulisic all lurking

        1. mynameisq
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          There will be, but so far he seems to play his first choice all the time and brings the others off the bench

    3. markloe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      it's almost a shame Tomori is so cheap

  6. markloe
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    any leftfield suggestions for my WC defence? I'm set on TAA, Leicester, Lundstram, Rico but not sure of the last spot

    1. Offs!de
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Tomori?

      1. markloe
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        yeah he's in at the moment but was feeling a bit template

    2. RashFraud
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Seems to be the template. Personally I'm looking at Tomori, Creswell, Lowton, Kelly and use the cash elsewhere. Getting in Alisson and your double LIV defence is covered

    3. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Doherty if you've got the money?

    4. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Tierney and Boly interest me

  7. mynameisq
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Pukki to Wilson
    Cantwell to CHO
    Digne to Soy

    Or Digne to Soy
    Pukki to Firmino or Vardy

    1. RashFraud
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      B for me with Vardy

      1. mynameisq
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Interesting, thanks

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Pukki to Wilson

  8. jpb333
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 month, 1 day ago

    Final WC decision. Views appreciated...

    a. Vardy, H-O, Ota
    b. Wilson, Maddison, Tomori

    Rest is pretty locked in:
    Pope 4.0
    TAA, Soy, Lund, Rico
    Sterling, KDB, Mount, 4.5
    Auba, Abraham

    1. RashFraud
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Don't get all the love for Otamendi. He's a card magnet and City aren't looking too good defensively anyway

      1. Kun Tozser
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Capable of 20 point hauls, great short term fixtures

      2. jpb333
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        i know what you mean, but don't see many better options at that price

    2. Devo-McDuff

      B overall

    1. PraiseJeebus

      Why would you even consider Son? Maddison looks good, Vardy bit unsure of but can deliver. Are you behind in your ML go double Lei.. if not, Id go A
