Captain Sensible

Who is the best FPL captain for Gameweek 12?

Liverpool and Manchester City’s Sunday afternoon clash has complicated the Gameweek 12 captaincy debate.

Fantasy Premier League managers are largely steering clear of their table-topping premium options this weekend, with a greater focus on the cheaper assets in their teams.

Leicester, Chelsea and Wolves appear to be three sides at the heart of the discussion according to the polls.

As ever, we’re here to assess each candidate on both their own merits over the last four Gameweeks as well as their opponents’ defensive form.

As this article uses extensive data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those who have signed up for the 2019/20 season can access it in full.

Captain Poll

It’s been tough keeping this to ourselves and making no comment at all, especially when some of the results have been leaked. Now we know for certain which player has won the captain poll.

We have saved and screenshotted the results which clearly show just one player has emerged as the winner.

It’s ………Jamie Vardy (£9.4m).

The results of this week’s captain poll

The Leicester City forward has been in exceptional form this season and currently sits top of the Golden Boot race with 10 goals.

Seven of those have come since Gameweek 7, where his form has really raced into life from a Fantasy perspective.

Since that 5-0 win over Newcastle, Vardy has averaged 9.6 points per game.

In Gameweek 12 he goes up against an Arsenal defence that has conceded an average of 1.4 goals per away game this season.

Furthermore, Vardy has scored eight times in as many Premier League starts against the Gunners.

All of that has contributed to 39.7% of voters in our poll selecting him as the best captain option for Gameweek 12.

Abraham is the second-most-popular option in the Gameweek 12 captain poll

Tammy Abraham (£7.9m) has his hands on second place with 23.4% of the vote.

This weekend, Chelsea host Crystal Palace in a match that could finally see their number one centre-forward even out the balance between his home and away form.

In the last four Gameweeks, Abraham has four attacking returns although all of those have come on the road.

Will some Fantasy managers be put off by the fact that just two of his 11 attacking returns in 2019/20 have come at Stamford Bridge? Perhaps. We recently did an analysis of this subject in a Members article.

Jiménez (left) is on course for a bronze medal in this captain poll

A long way off in third-place in the captain poll was Raúl Jiménez (£7.2m) who pulled in the support of 5.9% before hosting Aston Villa.

This Midlands rivalry contest could see plenty of goals, especially considering that Dean Smith’s men have conceded an average of 2.2 goals per away match this season.

Meanwhile, Jiménez is enjoying something of a Fantasy renaissance of late with four attacking returns (two goals, two assists), since Gameweek 8.

Despite going six league matches in a row without a goal, Teemu Pukki (£6.8m) is currently fourth in our captain poll with 3.3% of the vote.

That support is probably almost entirely influenced by the fact that Watford have conceded 23 goals this season – the third-worst.

However, it must be highlighted that Quique Sanchez Flores has been slowly improving the Hornets’ back-line recently.

In the last four matches, they have kept two clean sheets and went close to a third against Spurs.

Mané is the most fashionable asset for the captaincy from Liverpool’s next fixture

Sadio Mané (£12.0m) is the most popular asset from Liverpool and Manchester City’s encounter as far as captaincy is concerned.

2.9% of our voters have backed him for the armband and, on closer inspection, it hardly seems a strange decision to do so.

You have to go back to Gameweek 3 for the last time that Mané failed to register attacking returns in a home game.

Since then he scored 15 points against Newcastle, notched up a 12-point haul when Leicester came to Anfield and earned a penalty against Spurs in Gameweek 10 for five points.

Meanwhile, Manchester City’s defence has raised some eyebrows of late and they could also be without goalkeeper Ederson (£6.1m) on Sunday afternoon after he picked up an injury midweek.

There isn’t much backing for other cast members for this potentially title-deciding clash. 1.7% have voted for Sergio Aguero (£12.0m), 1.3% for Raheem Sterling (£12.1m), 1.1% for Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) and 0.9% for Kevin de Bruyne (£10.2m).

Harry Kane (£10.8m), Anthony Martial (£7.6m), Christian Pulisic (£7.3m), Todd Cantwell (£4.7m), John Lundstram (£4.8m), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) and Marcus Rashford (£8.5m) are the other options on more than 1% support.

    I have the armband on Kane. Is this a mistake?

      Great top post

    4. Jealous Viper

      Same thing here. Just gut feeling really

      1. Ha.
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 20 hours ago

        Seems massively overlooked. I know few own Spurs assets but if I owned Son I wouldn’t even be questioning it and going with him.

        1. Jealous Viper
          • 1 Year
          13 days, 20 hours ago

          Oh yeah i much prefer Son as an option. My plan however is a little hokey cokey. Auba to Kane and back again for Aubas next two. Sneaky feeling Spurs turning the corner a little and if he does blank, really won't be more shocking than Sterling's 1 pointer last week. Rank is really low rn and looks for ways to climb up the boards.

        2. Devo-McDuff
          • 1 Year
          13 days, 19 hours ago

          Why? Sheff U have are in good form and have a great defensive record.

          1. Jealous Viper
            • 1 Year
            13 days, 19 hours ago

            Just gut feeling and blind trust. I agree if you look at it rationally, plenty of flaws exist but trying to think out of the box to find ways to climb rank.

            1. Devo-McDuff
              • 1 Year
              13 days, 14 hours ago

              Yes, logically there are much better picks. But Kane is a great player and obviously well capable of a haul, even if the stats on both sides suggest otherwise. If you’re chasing he’s certainly a differential.

    5. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      13 days, 20 hours ago

      I’m doing the same thing, so I hope not

      1. Jealous Viper
        • 1 Year
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        Let's hope for the best. A 13 pointer will do nicely.

        1. HamezMace
          • 5 Years
          13 days, 19 hours ago

          Agreed, no obvious captain pick really.
          I don’t think there will be much between Kane and Vardy

    6. Me Spurs
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      I’m going son C despite owning Vardy

    7. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Could be great, nice diferential

  2. CostaCoffee
    • 6 Years
    13 days, 20 hours ago

    Would Auba to Jiménez be a sideways move? Or would you do it?

    1. The Units
      • 9 Years
      13 days, 20 hours ago

      Upgrade I reckon.

    2. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Might regret it with Southampton and Norwich next up for Aub.

    3. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      If you already own Tammy and Vardy than yes, good move

  3. PAL
    • 4 Years
    13 days, 20 hours ago

    Imagine the meltdown on here if Vardy blanks..

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      13 days, 20 hours ago

      Would hardly be a meltdown, there’s been a lot more captains with higher expectations that have blanked this season

      1. Ha.
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 20 hours ago

        Sterling, every time I have captained

    2. The Units
      • 9 Years
      13 days, 20 hours ago

      Highly likely now the bandwagon is out of control.

      1. Planet_Marss
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        kinda mad about the bandwagon.. but i guess its inevitable when he's performing that well.. had him from gw 1 instead of debruyne.. while people were raving about debruyne this guy was lowkey getting me the points regularly

    3. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Our captains blanked so many times that I wont even complain as he is standout option for me anyway.

    4. In a Rush
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      I hope he doesn’t blank I desperately need a good week

    5. HarryB29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 18 hours ago

      Strangely, this is about as confident I have been about a captain pick all season

  4. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    13 days, 20 hours ago

    Struggling with which defenders to play?

    Playing Mount until info says otherwise, Rico first if he is rested?

    Pope
    Lundstram, Trent, Virgil
    Mane, KDB, Martial, Maddy, Mount
    C Vardy, Tammy

    Button, Rico, Mousett, Soy,

    2.0 bank

    1. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 20 hours ago

      Maybe Rico over Lundstram because of the fixture. But think I would keep as is.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Cheers.

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Im in similar position with Lundstram vs Rico and have Rico in starting XI atm

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        If Mount is benched Rico comes in anyway, benching Lundy never ends well?

        1. Stoichkov#8
          • 4 Years
          13 days, 19 hours ago

          I kind of want Mount to be out this week too 🙂
          Yes, Lundstram seems like a guy who you dont want to bench but think Spurs found some form esp Son so dont think he will get CS and Rico has set pieces and much better fix.
          Its really not easy decision.

          1. Planet_Marss

    How does this look? Got 2FT, 0.7 ITB, cheers!

    Heaton,Button
    Otamendi,TAA,Chambers,Rico,Lundstram
    Sterling,Salah,Kdb,Mount,Cantwell
    Pukki,Wesley,Abraham

    Maybe Otamendi+Pukki--->Soyuncu+Jimenez?

    1. CostaCoffee

      Solid moves

      1. In a Rush
        • 3 Years
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        Yes good moves

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Good moves but I would be tempted to get Vardy..even using a hit

      1. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
        • 5 Years
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        Can't get him

        1. Stoichkov#8
          • 4 Years
          13 days, 19 hours ago

          than make the moves you planed. they look good

  9. Lingard’s Shin Guards
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Rp. Gtg?

    Pope
    TAA Janmaat Lund
    Mane KDB Maddison Mount
    Kun Vardy (c) Abraham

    Button Rico Cantwell Soy (2ft 0.7m itb)

    Don’t see anything that needs addressing, should I just burn the transfer? Would only make 1 move at most as I’ll need 2ft’s to get in Salah next week

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

      Get rid of Cantwell

    2. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Nah don’t burn. Could punt on Kun to Auba, he has nice fixtures from next week and Kun is big rotation risk. If not I’d get rid of Cant, appears to have lost his place and looks like a regular 1 pointer, downgrade to free up cash. Douglas Luiz is one I’m considering for Cant but have more pressing issues.

    3. In a Rush
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Cantwell ➡️ Djenepo

    4. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Great team. I would make Pope > Henderson or Cantwell to some 4.4/4.5 mid.
      Other option is to change Kun to Sterling and change to 3-5-2 and I think I would do that.

    5. MikeRyko
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Good to see a team with Janmat in, I've just picked him up on wildcard.

      I'd downgrade Cantwell to a 4.4m. Gives you a little bit more £ to play around with during the IB.

    6. HarryB29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 18 hours ago

      Jesus what is the team value here...

  10. THEKID_88
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Play Soyu or Rico?

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Rico

    2. JohnBlack
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Rico

  11. FDMS All Starz
    • 4 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Any changes needed? Mane in or hold? 1FT & 0.5itb

    Pope
    TAA - Robbo - Lunds - Rico
    Sterling - Mount - Kdb
    Vardy - Tammy - Auba

    Subs: Button - Soy - Dendonker - Nakamba

    1. Planet_Marss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      mane in

      1. FDMS All Starz
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        for?

        1. Planet_Marss
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          13 days, 19 hours ago

          1 ft.. so sterling
          then u can scout him over next few against pool and chelsea and decide if u want him back.. you can go back through auba or mane (auba might need an extra move)

  12. Are we overlooking Salah and Mané for captaincy this GW?
    FFCommunity_
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Are we overlooking Mo Salah and Sadio Mane as captain options this weekend? The odds seemed in their favour for a win against Manchester City and may have been bolstered by the absence of Ederson. Claudio Bravo is known to be a liability for the City defence, conveniently demonstrated in his Champions League performance this week. Sadio Mane in particular is an enticing prospect, after being rested midweek.

    1. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Yes probably, if confirmed that Bravo aka the hologram is in. I’d captain Mane if I wasn’t a City fan!

      1. FFCommunity_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        Time to put those club loyalties to one side?

        1. Devo-McDuff
          • 1 Year
          13 days, 15 hours ago

          I definitely should as having a good season so far with 211 OR. I can’t do it though, it’d spoil my Sunday one way or the other!

          1. FFCommunity_
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            13 days, 14 hours ago

            Wow. Smashing it!

    2. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Thinking it's a wash between Mané, Salah, Vardy, Salah - my guess all will get about 6-8 points this GW.

      1. FFCommunity_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        Always the same when it’s a tight dilemma!

    3. Jealous Viper
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Could be a cagey affair really with both teams probably happy for a draw. 0-0 or 1-1 won't surprise me. Bravo is poor but City can do a good job sometimes protecting their defence and think Pep will set up like he did at Anfield last year.

      The real question is...why are we overlooking Kaptain Kane 🙂

      1. FFCommunity_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        Because we don’t trust Spurs?

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        I don't know about that. City will be gunning for a win here.

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Ederson will probably start. If Pep says he is out then between Salah and Vardy for me.

      1. FFCommunity_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        All eyes on the press conference. Trust City to be last at 1:30!

      2. Devo-McDuff
        • 1 Year
        13 days, 15 hours ago

        Some City sources suggest they are pessimistic of his chances.

    5. Planet_Marss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      probably not.. i reckon there will be a surprising number of managers that captain mane based on form and the afore mentioned by yourself.. and salahs out form.. if managers captain salah theyre just hoping for some luck to go their way (for him to come back into form).
      regardless, abraham and vardy are still better options according to analytics.. theyre also in form and are not playing side as desperate to win
      Conclusion: not "overlooking" them

    6. De Andrade Party (jia you)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      No, triple LIV is more than enough v City!

    7. T-BOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Something I’ve been looking at as a sneaky differential with Salah. I can’t see Pep strategically deploying his team for a tight affair because if City have any aspirations of winning the title they simply have to win. City will be pressing hard against the Reds and I fancy it will expose them to the counter attack just as we witnessed against Wolves and Villa. The defensive fragility of City has already been exposed this season and without key personnel in defensive midfield I think it could add to their woes. A Salah haul may very well come to fruition and his record against City is sublime. Worth a punt

      1. FFCommunity_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        Completely agree with all you’ve said here. The counter so important for Liverpool in this game.

        Totally agree, salah big differential this week
        As a pool fan I’d be more comfortable not having a captain in this game and giving the armband to the Mexican maestro. Villa simply ship more goals especially away from home

    Better option:

    a) Salah > Mane
    b) save FT

    SCOUT PICKS CHALLENGE - GAMEWEEK 12

    Greetings from Thailand!

    Okay.. I do seldomly swear the GW10 results will be available in around 2 hours, followed quickly by GW11. I'm

    ****** WHAT IS IT? ******

    For those of you who haven't been around or aren't aware, every evening prior to the start of the gameweek FFS releases their picks of players for the gameweek, "Scout Picks", as well as 3 differentials before the first games to separate yourself from the crowd.

    This is your way to have a bit of fun and challenge those scout picks with a set of your own (read instructions below). This will always open the day before the gameweek starts around 8pm, and whilst you don't have to play weekly, the more you play the better chance you have of winning!

    ****** INSTRUCTIONS ******

    Everyone can have their own scout picks (there is no limit on team value) but with one simple rule,

    YOU CAN ONLY PICK ONE PLAYER FROM EACH TEAM
    (yes, two of your players at least will be on opposing teams).

    You can only have ONE submission, and your FIRST submission will be what is accepted. You also must respond DIRECTLY to this post (I.e. not to a reply on this post, just as a reply to this post). FFS Scout Picks are automatically enrolled. Teams must comply with FPL formation rules and be submitted in an easy to read format, e.g.

    GK
    DEF DEF DEF
    MID MID MID MID
    FOR FOR FOR

    Deadline for this gameweek is Friday 8 November, 19:00 GMT.

    ****** SCORING ******

    Regardless of number of applicants, scoring will be done by the following:

    1st place: 3 points
    Top 4% of the population will rank "second" and score 2 points.
    Top 10% of the population will rank "third" and score 1 point.

    There is also a bonus point which everyone is eligible for. If you score higher than FFS' Scout Picks AND Substitutes (i.e. 14 players), you will be awarded with a bonus point regardless of whether you were in the top 10% scoring positions or not.

    Welcome to the game, and good luck.

    ***** THE STANDINGS *****

    Morning,

    Not sure who to choose.

    please finish my WC. This for GW13. The decision may reflect which one week punt I went for.

    Hendo (4m)
    Taa-____-Rico-Soy- Lund
    _____-Mane-Maddy-Mount-_____
    Tammy-Vardy -_____

    a) Robbo-KDB- Pulisic/Martial-(Connolly)
    b) Janmaat-KDB- (Hayden)-Auba
    c) Robbo-Sterling- Djenepo (Connolly)
    D) Robbo-sterling-(Hayden) - King

    1. andreyarshavin
      • 8 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      get KDB, Jimenez, Martial and swap Mount for Pulisic if he's injured (if you can afford)

      1. Old Gregg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        thanks. Unfortunately I can't afford that.

        Martial would need to be 5.6m

    2. HarryB29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 18 hours ago

      E - KDB, Robbo, Jimenez, Dendoncker

  17. Pompel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Benching headache, play two:

    A) Tomori (Palace at home)
    B) Lundstram (Spurs away)
    C) Lowton (West Ham at home)

    cheers!

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      AC

    2. andreyarshavin
      • 8 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      roll a dice

    3. In a Rush
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      B,C Chelsea always find a way to concede

    4. Printing Mane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      AC

    5. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Txs all, leaning towards BC atm

    6. The Units
      • 9 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      BC

    7. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      AC, but if you have Pope, I’d rather spread the risk and go Lundy instead of Lowton.

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        Have Pope yes, so valid point.

  18. andreyarshavin
    • 8 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    morning all.

    good to go for this gameweek?

    pope
    taa, chilwell, lundy
    raz, mane, kdb, maddison, mount
    jimenez (c), tammy (vc)

    button, greenwood, kelly, boly

    1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Yes, if everyone starts, that bench!

      1. andreyarshavin
        • 8 Years
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        yep, I did haller > jimenez this week as my FT. made sense as I was happy with my 3 starting defenders and already took a price hit on boly.

    2. HarryB29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 18 hours ago

      No vardy is the one and only issue with this team

  19. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
    • 4 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Why are the press conferences you want to hear always later?
    Blast the powers that be 🙂

  20. AlexDelPiero
    • 1 Year
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Pukki, Sterling & Greenwood ----> Vardy, Maddison and Jota (-4)?

    1. Ha.
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Seems perverse to remove Sterling for a hit, but it actually looks sensible

    2. In a Rush
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Yes I like that I’ve got rid of sterling too

    3. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Just do Pukki and Sterling to Vardy and Maddison and save yourself 4 points.

      Personally I would keep Sterling and not buy Maddison.

    4. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Not for a hit. Pukki and Sterling could easily get attacking returns.

    5. Nabs Kebabs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Can't think of many worse forwards than Jota this season

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 19 hours ago

        Bentheke?

    6. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Just do Sterling and greenwood ➡ vardy and maddo, or another mf.

  21. Millie7
    • 5 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Looks like a tough week on paper...anything i should do with 1FT i have?
    4.1ITB

    Heaton
    Trent - Lundstram - Montoya - Soyoncu
    Mount - tielemans - KDB - Salah
    Abraham - Vardy

    Pope -Guendouzi - Greenwood - Kelly

    1. MikeRyko
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      I'd do Greenwood to Jimmy & then play him ahead of Montoya. Although this would change team structure away from 4-4-2 you've got at the moment.

  22. Printing Mane
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Start one ?

    A CHO (CPL)
    B Soy (ARS)
    C Lund (tot)

    1. andreyarshavin
      • 8 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      CHO ofcourse

    2. Ha.
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      A...

  23. Mr_Barbs
    • 2 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Bench these in order.
    Playing Mount so might need to get this right

    A) Cantwell
    B) Cancelo
    C) Greenwood

    1. JustPark
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      You got that right.

    2. Ha.
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      ACB

    3. Mr_Barbs
      • 2 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Agree with Cantwell first. That's settled. Hoping I won't need another sub. Thanks!

  24. KANE-O-MANIA
    • 5 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Best Sterling replacement (also have KDB) for 10 mil??

    1. MikeRyko
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Son if its got to be in that price bracket.

    2. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Mane or Salah.

  25. Bubbles1985
    • 2 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Heaton
    TAA Rico Lundstram Pieters
    Sterling(c) KDB Mount
    Haller Auba Vardy(vc)

    Button Cantwell Saka Kelly

    I am holding 1.8itb and 1ft.
    Saving WC until next month...

    A) Cantwell > James
    B) lose Auba to enable Tammy + Liv attack (-4)
    C) Something else?!

    Cheers!

    1. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Haller ➡ jimenez, or just save a transfer for next gw.

  26. The Red Devil
    • 4 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Martial or Jimenez?

  27. royals forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Pick one to play

    Aurier (SHU)
    Tomori (CPL)

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      What other defenders are you starting?

    2. royals forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Lundstram Lowton

  28. All de Gea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Anyone else transferring out KDB for Son? I need back-up!

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Doesn’t sound like a great idea, KdB can return against anybody

    2. The Units
      • 9 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Nope

    3. Kiwi Don
      • 7 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      Tempted, fixtures are good for Son until Jan.

      Head says no but my gut is telling me to take a punt.

      Only downside is the loss of value.

    4. Pep Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 18 hours ago

      I did this move as I have a feeling he's going to be too much for SHU. Brought him in to give him the armband too

  29. arndff_
    • 7 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    That feeling when you manage to roll a FT before the IB... 😎

  30. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 3 Years
    13 days, 19 hours ago

    Re : Any of these worth an FT?
    A)Pope to Gazzaniga
    B) Sterling to Mane
    C) Salah to Mane

    1. arndff_
      • 7 Years
      13 days, 19 hours ago

      No

    2. Ha.
      • 4 Years

      I’m contemplating B, but can’t bring myself to do it
