Is Abraham a better FPL asset at home or away?

With Manchester City and Liverpool meeting in Gameweek 12, Tammy Abraham (£7.9m) has been touted as one of the names to feature heavily in the captaincy debate.

Chelsea host Crystal Palace on Saturday lunch-time and a 12-point haul last time out for their number one centre-forward has only increased interest in him for the armband.

However, there are some managers put off by the disparity between Abraham’s attacking returns at Stamford Bridge and away from it.

Abraham scored 12 points in Chelsea’s 2-1 win at Watford

The former Aston Villa loanee has registered 11 attacking returns in as many league matches this season, nine of which have come on the road and only two at home.

As Gameweek 12 sees Crystal Palace make the short trip to Stamford Bridge, we will assess Abraham’s exploits at Chelsea’s home this season to see if he is likely to disappoint his owners there once again.

How does Abraham’s goal threat differ home and away?

    Sorry to post again but really struggling with this one and could do with canvassing some additional opinions! Thanks in advance.

    Bench 3

    1) Lund (tot)
    2) McGinn (wol)
    3) Cantwell (WAT)
    4) Chilwell (ARS)
    5) Lowton (WHU)

    Currently on Lundstram, McGinn, Cantwell in that order.

    Also have Pope in goal if that makes any difference.

      1/3/5

    2. Reacher
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 19 hours ago

      Id bench 1,3,5 in that order but would be worried about Lundy, lukily I dont have this headache and will be starting him.

      Personally, I wouldn't bench Lundstram or Chilwell, so the other 3

      Weird people are still recommending Lund should be benched.

  2. Reacher
    • 9 Years
    15 days, 19 hours ago

    Lots seem to be going Sterling out instead of KDB to fund Vardy in

    Is this purely down to value as personally im looking to ship KDB to free up the funds?

    1. fish&chips
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 19 hours ago

      KDB represents better value, particularly if you're not going to captain either of them, which given the upcoming fixtures, most probably won't.

      1. Reacher
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 19 hours ago

        I get this but i feel Sterling is more explosive and has far better chance of hauling so for this reason ill be keeping him

        1. FOO FIGHTER
            15 days, 19 hours ago

            Sterling does not seem to look comfortable playing wide left.

            1. DontPiqueTooSoon
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              15 days, 19 hours ago

              He looked so much better with Mendy playing at LB. If Mendy can settle in that position then I think Sterling will start to deliver points more consistently.

              He is still getting an unbelievable amount of touches in the final third and he is involved in chances. It's only a matter of time before he hauls. I am keeping him for now.

                • 1 Year
                15 days, 13 hours ago

                As a City season ticket holder, I completely agree with this.

            2. Reacher
              • 9 Years
              15 days, 19 hours ago

              he is still having a good season though, I think City's last game has frustrated his owners but im willing to keep

      2. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        15 days, 19 hours ago

        If I go Sterling out I can bring in Jimenez Madison Robb Stevens in 3 gws
        I want to get reid of kdb but I won't be able to bring all of them so I'll ditch Sterling

        1. Reacher
          • 9 Years
          15 days, 19 hours ago

          So as i thought it comes down to funs for most, fair enough and GL with your transfers above

      3. liverpool01
        • 1 Year
        15 days, 19 hours ago

        A bit of both Sterling not been great as captain

      4. Bucket Man
        • 1 Year
        15 days, 19 hours ago

        Got KDB in GW1 so more value would be the only reason I consider it.

      5. drughi
        • 10 Years
        15 days, 19 hours ago

        I got rid of KDB for mane as I still feel sterling is the more explosive one plus sterling/mane offer better captain option

        1. Reacher
          • 9 Years
          15 days, 19 hours ago

          This is my thinking exactly

      6. HarryB29
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        15 days, 19 hours ago

        Feels like KDB at 10 ish million is good value, whereas Sterling at 12 million is not, think Sterling only has like 3 double figure returns in 2019 or something like that

    2. JustPark

      Son's red overturned. Doesn't really spark credibility of VAR.

          stick for a week and reassess

      • Space Cadete
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        15 days, 19 hours ago

        Had enough of constant underperformers and willing to take a -4 to avoid having so many of them in the squad over the long international break. Which one appeals?

        A) Yarmolenko to Tielemans
        B) Pukki to Jiminez

        1. The Units
          • 9 Years
          15 days, 19 hours ago

          B

        2. FOO FIGHTER

              Cheers. As I’m a natural contrarian this confirms my decision to go with A!

          Earlier Post full of blunders so posting again..Need suggestion guys..

          Guys original plan is to do

          Dealofue ota digne to vardy rico Janmaaat for -4

          since mount is injured should I transfer cantewell out?

          A) auba cantwell ota to vardy Martial/maddison Rico -4
          B) Auba cantwell to vardy tielemans free.
          C) stick to the original plan and start janmaat or soyu

          Team

          Pope button
          Taa ota soyu digne lund
          Kdb sterling Mount mcgin cantwell

          15 days, 19 hours ago

          Any thing here?

          Think I will save the FT and use it next week in a move with Sterling, Connolly, Janmaat out for Robbo, Vardy, bench flodder in.

          0.4 ITB/1FT

          Pope
          TAA, Lordstram, Rico, Janmaat, Soyuncu
          Mane, Sterling, KdB, Martial, Mount
          Jimenez, Tammy, Connolly

          1. Doni555
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            15 days, 19 hours ago

            Agreed - you don't need to do anything this week with that team

            1. Tshelby
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            • 1 Year
            15 days, 19 hours ago

            Those moves look good, although no Vardy this week could hurt, likely the highest captain amongst top 100k

            1. Tshelby
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              15 days, 19 hours ago

              Can't have them all. Not willing to take a hit to bring Vardy in

        5. Noé Pamarot
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 19 hours ago

          Worst start to the season since I began playing about 8 years ago. 3.3m rank - embarrassing! Need to start getting back involved on here more...

          So here is my rabble:

          Pope - Button
          Digne - Lundstram - Janmaat - Rico - Diop
          Salah - KDB - Sterling - Yarmolenko - Saka
          Aubameyang - Abraham - Connolly

          Any suggestions?
          I am moderately tempted to hold simply because I have burnt myself several times this season by being too trigger happy. That being said:

          1. Digne & Auba > TAA & Vardy (-4)
          2. Just Auba > Vardy
          3. Auba & Yarmo > Vardy & Pulisic/Martial/A.Nother (-4).
          4. Save and use 2 FT wisely next week.
          5. Anything else obvious that someone not ranked 3.3m can see!

          Cheers in advance Sirs.

            I like 2 and do digne>TAA the week after

            1. Noé Pamarot
              • 1 Year
              15 days, 19 hours ago

              Any thoughts on holding Auba for Arsenal's nice fixtures, or do you think Vardy form/Arsenal ineptitude outweighs that run?

              1. Doni555
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                15 days, 19 hours ago

                I agree with Drughi. It's not just the difference between Vardy and Auba, but the money you save that allows you to improve the rest of your team too, and Vardy has the fixtures as well anyway

                1. Noé Pamarot
                  • 1 Year
                  15 days, 18 hours ago

              15 days, 19 hours ago

              Defence is shocking. Digne and Diop need to go.

              Plus Saka and Yarmo.

              Auba to Vardy.

              1. Noé Pamarot

                Cheers..and agreed re the defence.

            • Yozzer
              • 2 Years
              15 days, 18 hours ago

              I feel Yarmo may be dropped after his woeful display. Fans are hammering him.

              1. Nellybc
                • 2 Years
                15 days, 18 hours ago

                I have him and with Mount flagged am starting to worry.

                Didn't want to use a transfer before the IB but might be forced after the pressers.

                Fixtures are not great for Yarmolenko after this week either really.
                Tot(h) Che(a) Wol(a) Ars(h) Sou(a) then a free week in 18

            is the tottenham defence completely broken? as in aurier tottenham seem to finally have a full back that is looking rotation proof. he's a bit of a lunatic but you also can't doubt his price or attacking threat

            1. Arthur Shelby
              • 7 Years
              15 days, 19 hours ago

              Unfortunately has seemed that way. Wouldn't want to rely on them for clean sheets, though you could see 1 or 2 in the next 5 given the fixtures, and Aurier does carry some threat at a small price

            2. jtreble
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

              Don’t you think Sessegnon is going to be a regular starter now?

          5. liverpool01
            • 1 Year
            15 days, 19 hours ago

            Start Cantwell or Lowton?

            1. FOO FIGHTER
                15 days, 19 hours ago

                Lowton. Cantwell may be a dead asset now.

              • JustPark
                • 3 Years
                15 days, 19 hours ago

                Lowton. Neither to be honest.
                Hernandez is back and ahead of Cantwell now.

                    One of the Lowton is Cantwell. Not sure who's the other mid.

              If Mount is out who will replace him?

                      I hate the headache. 1 playing keeper is enough for me.

                      Could do with Burnley not being so terrible though.

                                I have cash to do it but will keep Pope for the next 3. Pretty good fixtures.

                                After that Henderson would have played UTD. So then get him and another.

                        Any improvement would you make for this WC lot? 2.4ITB.

                          That bench makes no sense since you've listed them already.

                          But seems way too safe. What is your plan for triple Liverpool? Any differentials at all? Maddison or Mount could easily be swapped for some more exciting picks like Pulisic or Martial.

                            Hate to say it but at least from fpl wise, I don't trust Man United.
                            Could go Robbo instead of Tomori really.

                              If you can afford it, definitely worth it.

                          It's the perfect template team. A solid base there.

                        Can anyone who watched the Chelsea game give a little lowdown on what exactly happened to Mount and how bad it looked please?

                          wasn't the classic ankle rock, was more of a quick *insert ross geller voice* pivot back and forth. he looked in pain but hard to say how bad it looked. he stood up and didn't even try jogging it off so i'd personally be surprised to see him on the weekend but that's pure unnecessary speculation as we should get an answer on friday

                          regardless. with the number of options, it would be a sin to play him.

                          While many will be keeping an eye on Trossard, really hoping Djenepo plays this weekend.

                          I want to see if he is going to be a viable option!

                            I have just got him in on my draft team so hopefully he can come good now.

                          Please comment on my WC team, having the worst season ever

                          Pope / Gazza
                          Robbo / TAA / Lund / Rico / Willems

                          Vardy / Tammy / Jota

                          Seems very boring...

                              Not bad but I would not go James and Jorginho on WC.

                            Strong enough to save? Looks like it will be 532 with my 3 mids in the same game.

                              soy has a terible fixture with little goal threat.. he's already used up one of his 3 goals of the season last weekend.. would switch mount if confirmed injured

                                  Leicester bad fixtures?

                                    leicesters way of current way of defending (keeping a high line) allows rapid players to run in behind.. arsenal are one of the few teams that can torch that back line for pace

                                    leicester are my second fav team in england but i can see them conceding one or two

                                  Got Mount at 6.2 so don't want to ditch, and nothing in bank to do anything good.

                                    mmm i see you probably cant go tielemans now.. that woulda been my suggestion okay then best of luck with soy.. he's on my bench

                              Assuming Mount doesn't recover this week, do you think CHO will start? Got both fwiw and was looking to sell CHO.

                              When is the best time to use it?
