Scout Notes

Pukki scores and de Gea injured as international break comes to a close

Our final Scout Notes of the international break focuses on the Fantasy assets who were in action for their countries on Tuesday.

As usual we’ll be documenting the minutes played and any injuries picked up by Premier League players, as well as bringing to light any goals or assists they may have registered.

Finland 3-0 Armenia

  • Teemu Pukki (£7.1m) – 90 minutes

Teemu Pukki’s (£7.1m) four-game stretch without a goal ended on Tuesday night, as the Norwich City striker scored a brace in Finland’s Euro 2020 qualification win over Armenia.

Pukki is the most-sold player of Gameweek 9 by some distance, despite the Canaries facing a Bournemouth side without a clean sheet so far this season.

Norwich’s woeful away form, of course, slightly counteracts that.

Pukki had four bites at the cherry before ending his goal drought, producing two excellent dinked finishes when racing onto through-balls from deep.

While this is ‘only Armenia’, the assured nature of Pukki’s finishes will perhaps boost his confidence and give his remaining owners some hope that the three-game run of FPL blanks may come to an end on the south coast this weekend.

Algeria 3-0 Colombia

  • Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m) – 85 minutes
  • Davinson Sanchez (£5.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Jefferson Lerma (£4.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Yerry Mina (£5.4m) – 0 minutes

Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m) produced an eye-catching display as Algeria saw off Colombia in a friendly in Lille.

The Manchester City winger was only a second-half substitute in Thursday’s draw with DR Congo but he started this latest match and played the first 85 minutes, having contributed to all three of his country’s goals.

Lining up in his usual right-wing role, Mahrez assisted Baghdad Bounedjah’s superb opening strike for Algeria.

All three of Algeria’s goals came from outside the box, with the premium FPL midfielder grabbing the other two.

Mahrez wrong-footed David Ospina with his first effort from the edge of the area, while his second was arguably the goal of the game: the former Leicester wide-man cutting in off the right flank and curling a superb left-footed effort into the bottom corner of Ospina’s goal.

Mahrez suffered a blow to the nose not long after his second strike but played on and was given a standing ovation upon his withdrawal in the dying stages.

Davinson Sanchez (£5.4m) played the full 90 minutes for Colombia but his usual centre-half partner, Yerry Mina (£5.4m), was an unused substitute.

Jefferson Lerma (£4.8m) also lasted the course and unsurprisingly picked up a booking.

Morocco 2-3 Gabon

  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) – 90 minutes

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) clocked up his second 90-minute run-out over the international break, lasting almost the entire game as Gabon beat Morroco in an international friendly.

Aubameyang was substituted in second-half stoppage time, having not played a part in any of his side’s three goals and having picked up a booking just after the break.

The good news for the Gabon international’s owners is that he has an extra two days to recover from his exertions with the national side, with Arsenal not in action until Monday evening.

Sweden 1-1 Spain

  • Victor Lindelof (£5.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Emil Krafth (£4.5m) – 0 minutes
  • Dani Ceballos (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Rodri (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • David de Gea (£5.6m) – 60 minutes
  • Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.5m) – 30 minutes

Manchester United were dealt an injury blow ahead of their Gameweek 9 meeting with Liverpool.

David de Gea (£5.6m) appeared to tweak his groin while taking a goal-kick in Spain’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Sweden on Tuesday, subsequently hobbling from the field and having to be replaced by Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.5m) on the hour-mark.

Spain national team boss Robert Moreno claimed that de Gea had actually been struggling earlier in the game, saying:

He had pain in the abductor muscle but he received treatment at half-time and wanted to keep playing. He gave us his word but in the end, he couldn’t continue.

Early reports suggest the injury is not serious but Sergio Romero (£4.8m) will be on standby to deputise for de Gea this Sunday should he be ruled out.

De Gea had earlier made a superb save to keep out Robin Quaison’s header and couldn’t prevent Marcus Berg’s opener despite making an excellent double-stop in the build-up to that strike.

There was better news for United on the injury front, with Victor Lindelof (£5.4m) shaking off the back problem that had forced him to miss out in Gameweek 8 to play the full game against Spain.

Dani Ceballos (£5.5m) and Rodri (£5.5m) lasted the full 90 minutes, with the Manchester City man forcing a fine early stop from Robin Olsen following a corner.

Newcastle’s Emil Krafth (£4.5m) was an unused substitute for the hosts, meanwhile, and hasn’t kicked a ball over the international break.

North Korea 0-0 South Korea

  • Son Heung-min (£9.8m) – 90 minutes

Son Heung-min (£9.8m) played the full match as South Korea drew with North Korea – but little else is known about the contest.

This World Cup 2022 qualifier was played behind closed doors, with no fans or journalists allowed in.

What we do know is that the game finished goalless, with Son unable to add to the brace he scored in last week’s win over Sri Lanka.

Given the flight time back from Asia, Son will likely be one of the last Premier League players to return to their clubs – although he played 90 minutes in Gameweek 5 after a similar schedule in the September international break.

Switzerland 2-0 Republic of Ireland

  • Granit Xhaka (£5.3m) – 90 minutes
  • Fabian Schar (£5.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Josip Drmic (£5.4m) – 0 minutes
  • Shane Duffy (£4.9m) – 90 minutes
  • John Egan (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Enda Stevens (£5.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Jeff Hendrick (£5.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Seamus Coleman (£5.4m) – 76 minutes
  • Aaron Connolly (£4.5m) – 69 minutes
  • Conor Hourihane (£5.7m) – 0 minutes
  • Callum Robinson (£5.3m) – 0 minutes
  • Kevin Long (£4.4m) – 0 minutes
  • Matt Doherty (£6.0m) – 0 minutes
  • Mark Travers (£4.4m) – 0 minutes

Aaron Connolly (£4.5m) was handed his first Ireland start but had few opportunities to impress as Mick McCarthy’s side failed to create too many clear-cut opportunities in their Euro 2020 qualifying defeat to Switzerland.

Ireland exerted a little more pressure after the interval but a blocked first-half effort was all Connolly had to show for his efforts and the budget FPL forward was withdrawn midway through the second half.

Shane Duffy (£4.9m), John Egan (£4.5m) and Enda Stevens (£5.0m) were part of an Ireland backline that faced a more potent Swiss attack, with Duffy putting through his own net in second-half injury time to seal the hosts’ win.

Seamus Coleman (£5.4m) was also part of the Irish defence but failed to last the whole game, being sent off for a second bookable offence – his second dismissal in three matches for club and country – when conceding a 76th-minute penalty that Ricardo Rodriguez subsequently missed.

Jeff Hendrick (£5.4m) put in a fairly unremarkable 90 minutes for the visitors, with Granit Xhaka (£5.3m) and Fabian Schar (£5.0m) lasting the course for the Swiss.

Schar, who is joint-top for goal attempts among FPL defenders this season, underlined his attacking threat with three efforts on goal, one of which was a header that struck the woodwork.

Josip Drmic (£5.4m), Conor Hourihane (£5.7m), Callum Robinson (£5.3m), Kevin Long (£4.4m), Matt Doherty (£6.0m) and Mark Travers (£4.4m) were all unused substitutes.

Denmark 4-0 Luxembourg

  • Kasper Schmeichel (£5.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£4.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Christian Eriksen (£8.8m) – 45 minutes
  • Andreas Christensen (£5.0m) – 0 minutes
  • Philip Billing (£5.0m) – 0 minutes

Christian Eriksen (£8.8m) had his minutes managed as Denmark coasted to a 4-0 win over Luxembourg in an international friendly on Tuesday.

The Spurs playmaker was hooked at the break and there have been no reports of an injury so far.

Eriksen, whose own indifferent form for Spurs has carried over to the international stage, created an early big chance for Southampton’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£4.8m), who lasted the full 90 minutes.

Kasper Schmeichel (£5.0m) was made to work harder for his clean sheet than perhaps expected against the European minnows, saving two presentable opportunities that the visitors carved out (both of which were deemed ‘big chances’ by Opta).

Philip Billing (£5.0m) was an unused substitute, meanwhile.

Andreas Christensen (£5.0m) had pulled out of the squad days earlier after suffering a hamstring strain in Saturday’s win over Switzerland.

The Athletic’s Simon Johnson has reported this morning that Christensen is “unlikely to feature” in Gameweek 9, although this hasn’t been ratified by Chelsea yet.

Romania 1-1 Norway

  • Josh King (£6.3m) – 90 minutes

Josh King (£6.3m) completed his second successive 90-minute run-out for Norway in their Euro 2020 qualifier against Romania.

As happened on Saturday against Spain, Norway waited until stoppage time to salvage a 1-1 draw – but this time it was Alexander Sorloth, rather than King, who grabbed a late equaliser.

The Bournemouth striker, who is operating on the left flank for his club at present, fired over in the first half and had a late header saved minutes before Sorloth found the net.

Liechtenstein 0-5 Italy

  • Jorginho (£5.1m) – 0 minutes

With all of the injuries Chelsea have accumulated over the international break, Frank Lampard would have been pleased to see one of his stand-out players of 2019/20 return to England unscathed.

Jorginho (£5.1m) was an unused substitute as Italy swatted aside Liechtenstein in a Euro 2020 qualifier, with the Azzuri having already qualified for next summer’s tournament.

Jorginho played 90 minutes and scored from the spot in Italy’s win over Greece on Saturday.

England Under-21s 5-1 Austria Under-21s

  • Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • James Justin (£4.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Marc Guehi (£4.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Tom Davies (£5.3m) – 90 minutes
  • Lloyd Kelly (£4.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Phil Foden (£5.2m) – 90 minutes
  • Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.9m) – 87 minutes
  • Joe Willock (£5.0m) – 74 minutes
  • Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) – 61 minutes
  • Max Aarons (£4.4m) – 61 minutes
  • Rhian Brewster (£4.4m) – 29 minutes
  • Oliver Skipp (£4.4m) – 16 minutes
  • Kevin Danso (£4.4m) – 90 minutes

The fit-again Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.9m) is a differential to watch in the coming weeks.

Owned by just 1.2% of FPL managers, Hudson-Odoi has recorded attacking returns in both of his Premier League appearances this season and was handed his first start by Frank Lampard in Gameweek 8.

Hudson-Odoi underscored his ability with two superb goals in England under-21s’ comfortable win over their Austrian counterparts, first volleying in a Max Aarons (£4.4m) cross and then running with the ball for almost the full length of the pitch before curling in England’s fourth goal of the night.

Lloyd Kelly (£4.4m) had provided a fine cross-field pass for Aarons in the build-up to Hudson-Odoi’s first goal and recorded an assist himself soon after, nodding down from a corner for Eddie Nketiah to score.

Kelly is Diego Rico‘s (£4.2m) main positional rival at Bournemouth but is capable of playing at centre-half and was indeed employed there by his national team on Tuesday as part of a three-man defence.

Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) operated on the other side to Aarons as a wing-back and crossed for Nketiah to head in his second goal, with the Arsenal forward – on loan at Leeds at present – completing his treble from a Rhian Brewster (£4.4m) cross.

Phil Foden (£5.2m) wasn’t among the goals but impressed again, with his dead-ball deliveries a threat.

Kevin Danso (£4.4m) played the full match for the visitors.

Greece 2-1 Bosnia and Herzegovina

  • Sead Kolasinac (£5.4m) – 90 minutes

There was a familiar outcome for Sead Kolasinac (£5.4m) in Tuesday night’s match in Greece: an attacking return but no clean sheet.

Kolasinac supplied the assist for Amer Gojak’s equaliser, crossing low from the left flank for the Bosnian midfielder to convert.

The Arsenal left-back now faces a challenge for his position at club level from Kieran Tierney (£5.4m), who has returned from injury.

Chinese Taipei 1-7 Australia

  • Mathew Ryan (£4.6m) – 90 minutes
  • Aaron Mooy (£4.8m) – 62 minutes

Brighton’s Australian duo were handed the same minutes as they got in Thursday’s 5-0 win over Nepal, with this latest success as comfortable as last week’s.

The pair now face a long-haul flight back from Asia ahead of Saturday’s meeting with Aston Villa.

Round-Up

Lucas Torreira (£4.8m) was an unused substitute as Uruguay drew with Peru in a friendly in the early hours of Wednesday morning (UK time).

The Arsenal midfielder was the very last FPL asset involved on international duty this week and now faces a long-haul flight back from South America but the Gunners are in action on Monday evening against Sheffield United, giving Torreira an extra two days to recover.

After his 77-minute run-out last Thursday, Arsenal ever-present Matteo Guendouzi (£4.7m) played the whole of France under-21s’ Euro 2021 qualifier against Slovakia on Tuesday.

Caoimhin Kelleher (£4.5m) and Adam Idah (£4.5m) completed the full game for Ireland under-21s in their 1-0 defeat to Iceland, with Michael Obafemi (£4.9m) withdrawn in the 75th minute.

Troy Parrott (£4.5m) was suspended.

Manchester City’s Eric Garcia (£4.5m) and Watford’s Pontus Dahlberg (£4.4m) also played the whole 90 minutes for Spain and Sweden’s under-21 sides respectively.

Claudio Bravo (£4.8m) lasted the full 90 minutes as Chile beat Guinea 3-2 in an international friendly.

Maya Yoshida (£4.4m) also completed the entirety of Japan’s 3-0 win in Tajikistan.

    I'd keep Robo. Maybe Otamendi to Söy/Boly and Haller to Wilson could be an option?

      Great...reply fail as the top post... sorry guys 🙂

        Haha, brilliant

      Haha. Nice 🙂

    3. Shakshuka

      Thx! Selling Robbo would be w a view to get TAA when fixtures ease up. Will consider Haller out as well. I do like his next 4 and he has been ticking over.

      1. bautasten
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah I see your point. I'm leaning towards getting Robo in (already have TAA) for the same period you mention.

  2. Lexi2014

    Kane to Auba?

    In an odd position of not having any stand out transfers I think - prove me wrong!

    Heaton (Pope)
    Digne / Lundstram / VVD (Aurier/Cathcart)
    Salah / Cantwell / Yarmolenko / Mount (KDB)
    Kane / Haller / Pukki

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

      Do you really need two 4.5 gks?

      1. Lexi2014
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        They rotate well

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Guessing you aren’t benching KDB? I think Kane >> Auba is a bad move this week personally. You don’t have to use the transfer you know 🙂

      1. Lexi2014
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        No I’m not, just seems odd to do nothing over an international break!

        1. Freddiebell
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I thought the same but I'm saving so I have 2 ft for next week because I have no stand out moves i need to make and my team looks OK.

    3. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Slap the armband on Kane as a farewell gift

    4. Karhumies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Options:

      Aurier to Soyuncu/Tomori
      Digne to Azpilicueta
      Pukki/Haller to Abraham/C.Wilson

    5. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      go for it

  3. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Guessing Wilson will rise tongiht?

    Likely to go for him over Vardy on WC now. Got Vardy at 8.9 but looks like Wilson will rise tonight so should I make the switch? Obviously news in the pressers could mean I go back to Vardy at lose 0.1 but for now I’m thinking Wilson.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Unless you think you'll want Vardy over Kane I'd make the move now. Am a bit over cautious since the Maddison rise, which has led me to go CHO instead.

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

        No, I want one premium from Kun, Kane or Auba. Then Tammy. It’s between Wilson and Vardy for
        Mid price striker

        1. ZimZalabim
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          so u going kun over raz then

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

            Yeah. Sick of him. Feel more comfortable with the armband on Kun for those two juicy home games

    2. bautasten
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Can't you get them both for now and drop someone else temporarily if you're undecided? I think I would get both if on a WC though...

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

        I have Tammy with money tied up and then Vardy and Auba who have both risen. So one must go 🙂

    3. ZimZalabim
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      i got vardy at 8.9 and shipped him for wilson day before as said above after that maddison rise ive been more observant and im 99% sure im keeping wilson so I made the move

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

        Thinking the same. Maddison rise was CRAZY!

    4. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Wilson will definitely rise tonight or tomorrow night, so will Mane
      Salah looks like he's dropping before Friday is out.

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

        Who to drop Auba or Vardy then? 🙂

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

          I think you should stick to your structure for now. So Vardy - Wilson looks like rising tomorrow so I'd risk the wait (hopefully some pressers tomorrow)

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

            Problem with my Kun-Wilson team is in bang on the money. My Auba-Vardy team I have 0.2 spare so I think the vardy to Wilson move makes sense now and keeps me flexible for Friday

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

              I’m bang*

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

              Makes sense. I'm probably going Auba-Wilson and leaving cash for vardy a bit later but I'm flip flopping like you!
              I think I am throwing in a few more risks than you (maybe Tierney/CHO) so you are the sensible chap!

  4. Tabbara
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Which option is better
    A: Callum wilson and rico for Digne and Pukku
    B: King Maddison Rico for Digne Pukki and Dedoncker (-4)
    Thx

    1. Triple P
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I dont like either tbh

  5. bautasten
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Evening! Thoughts on below with 2FT 0.0 ITB?

    A) Pukki, Ota -> Wilson, 4.5 Def (who?)
    B) Pukki, Firmino -> Wilson, King/Maupay/Conolly
    C) Firmino -> Wilson and save

    B and C would enable me to get Mane in for Son the next week for free. Was set on C but United without de gea could be gold for Firmino?

    1. Triple P
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      C, gives you 2FT next week as well

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Thanks, yeah always nice to save one if possible!

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I like C

      1. bautasten

        Thanks for the reply!

  6. Triple P
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    2FT, 1.2 itb. What would you do with this lot?

    Ryan (Button)
    Robbo / TAA / Mings (Lund / Rico)
    KdB / Sterling / Salah / Mount / Cantwell
    Pukki / Tammy (Greenwood)

    Cheers!

    1. bautasten
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Wow that's a great team to have with 2FTs in hand. The popular move would be Pukki to Wilson, but could backfire. Or just switch greenwood for Conolly to rotate with Cantwell and your defs.

      1. Triple P
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks, it seems the popular move indeed, but I'm not ready to let Pukki go 😉

        Would love to get Wilson as my 3rd striker instead of Greenwood and play 3-4-3 but don't want to downgrade any of my players... Reluctant to let Robbo go even though I have TAA as well, oh these struggles....!

        1. bautasten
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Yeah as I replied in an earlier post I'm looking to double up on LFC defense when the fixtures turn. But with Alisson back and their possible attacking returns against anyone I'd keep if I already had them.

          Hehe yeah I'm keeping Pukki at least one more week too. You can't have them all..GL!

          1. Triple P
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            True that!

            I will keep them both as well, I like their next 2 fixtures already 😉 points and cleansheets incoming surely!

        2. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1. Triple P
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            To who though? Budget will be 6.0

      1. Triple P
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Cheers. Have the funds for that, just don't like King playing as a mid. Would really want Wilson if going for a Bournemouth striker. Who would you drop in order to get the extra cash?

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

          Got to be Robbo or Salah for me. Fixtures aren’t great for next few weeks

          1. Triple P
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I personally like their fixtures. Man U and Spurs are totally out of form, so only City as a tough one in the next 9 imo.

            Anyhow thanks for your thoughts!

    Why are long haul flights considered a bad thing for players like son? Isn't it a good thing as it means there isn't much they can do on the plane but rest?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      It isn't an issue in reality but everyone uses any excuse they can as to why players minutes may need to be managed.

    2. bautasten

      I'd guess jetlag/different time zone could mess you up for a day or two..

    3. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      So you’ve become accustomed to a different time zone - you travel back and have jet lag - will you perform at your job to the normal level for a few days?

      Last time I travelled from Japan to Sweden my brain was complete mush for a couple of days. Would still probably have scored against Watford but jet lag can be a b*tch.

        Got rises on both mate so need to drop one for C.Wilson rise as I was saying above. Tammy is my other striker with money tied up

      I would play Rico over cantwell.

        As would I

        1. HarryB29
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Thanks for replies, whats your reasoning for Rico over Cantwell?

          1. zotter
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Norwich goal shy away. And also his attacking threat

          2. Dthinger
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I'm guessing possible Cantwell injury, plus potential Rico clean sheet?

    2. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Rico over Cantwell and the you are G2G

        Good shout

        1. Dthinger
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          is it? When Lund was 4.0 I would say so, but at the same price, Dunk might be better.

    2. Typo
      • 6 Years

      Tomori over Soy?

      1. SheBangsTheDrums

        3 Chelsea already used - could replace CHO?

    3. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      unless Cantwell was in your team before WC I would downgrade and use funds to upgrade CHO

      1. Corgzzzz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        forgot to say that I would not triple up CFC

    4. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Downgrade vardy. Get KDB.

    5. Wally banter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      No kdb? Or being too clever?

  18. TAT
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Not to sure about including Maddison on WC. I'm not sure about how much goal involvement he'll get, and as I'm chasing mini league rivals which have him/are likely to own him, I'm starting to think CHO might be a better option in a risky Mount/Abraham/CHO triple-up.

    Thoughts?

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I can't like the triple up

      1. TAT
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Particular reason as to why? Too many eggs in one basket?

        1. zotter
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I have mount and Abraham and considering Cho In for James. But I also am hesitant about the triple up. Mainly in case Chelsea flop that’s a huge whack

          1. TAT
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 4 days ago

            That's true of course. McGinn is also an option I guess; just not feeling it with Leicester mids.

        2. No Professionals
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Yeah basically

          1. TAT
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Who would you consider instead?

    2. Rash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I brought in mads this week for the triple up, just going to roll with it for a week or so then assess.

      1. TAT
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        A Leicester triple-up?

        1. Rash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Yes. Soy mads vardy

          1. TAT
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 4 days ago

            That's seems solid. Just not sure about Leicester myself. Don't know why really; just a hunch. My current WC draft only includes Soy out of those three. Might change during the week though!

    3. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I think the triple up is a good option tbh

      1. TAT
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        On one hand it's a bit risky, but there's also a potential upside. I'll definitely keep tinkering with the team until the deadline, and this is just one of several potential moves. All three of them (CHO, Mount, Abraham) look to be in great form though!

  19. HurriKane

    Auba. Abraham. Aguero

    One ft. Zero itb
    A. Salah to kdb

    D. Peters to soy
    E. James to CHO or McGinn

    H. Save FT and play James or cantwell

    1. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Very good team, tempted to roll and then deal with James or just do D if nothing pressing.

      1. zotter
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks. Might give that a miss this week in that case as would be benching peters anyway. Main concern is no kdb

        1. Corgzzzz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I agree, but you will need to rely on Pep doing something he never does and lets us know if KDB is fully fit and plays ??more reason to roll

          1. zotter
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Do you think aguero plays?

    2. Freddiebell

      A or B

  23. BDA Shadow
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Currently have Ryan and Mount but I'm very on the fence about Ryan (or any other budget options now) as a season keeper.
    Thinking of swapping to Schmeichel and CHO. Leicesters fixtures are very good right up to second WC time around GW34, and I'm quite confident in CHO. Losing Mount is hard though as I don't see him slowing down.

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Wouldn’t do those. Maybe Ryan to Gazza and hope spurs tighten up. This weekend should be a sheet.

      1. Dthinger

        Hope Spurs tighten up? why would that happen?
