FPL Question Time – Consult our panel ahead of Gameweek 13

Following the final international break of 2019, Fantasy Premier League returns this weekend.

Gameweek 13 certainly feels like a long time since the last round of action and we are sure you have plenty of dilemmas and questions.

That’s why we’ve assembled another panel of managers to help you out…

WHO’S ON THE PANEL THIS WEEK?

Rainy: A long-serving Fantasy Football Scout moderator with a best finish of 3,585. Has always been grateful for the existence of Theo Walcott after he saved his Gameweek three years ago.

Maximus Bonimus Pointimus: Veteran Fantasy Football Scout member, poster, and widely acknowledged as a bastion of truth, logic and reason in the wild world of Fantasy football discussion. Currently pursuing an elusive fifth top 10k finish, and with an overall career-best rank of 958th, the highs and lows of 12 FPL campaigns have left him completely desensitised to seeing good players get bad scores in good fixtures – and vice-versa!

Karan14: FFS community member who has finished in the top 10k in each of the last three seasons.

    Shall I drop Salah this week or roll the transfer? Midfield currently Mane/Salah/KDB/Mount (Cantwell)

    Probably would be for Maddison then upgrade 3rd 4,5 striker to Jiminez next GW

    1. Tomerick
      • 5 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Keep rollin rollin rollin rollin.

      Bank the transfer; Salah might come good this week, fitness and returns-wise

  2. Vimes (No Arsenal Players)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Bottomed...

    2FTs, thinking:
    Salah + Wilson > Mane + Jimi
    Thoughts?

  3. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    19 days, 12 hours ago

    Salah to Mane before weekend or save and stick with Salah?

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      19 days, 12 hours ago

      Wait for injury news

  4. royals forever

    Lost on last page

    In your opinion which midfield has more potential for a better points return in the next 4 -6 GWs

    A or B

    Mane KDB Maddison Dendoncker Pulisic

    or

    Mane/KDB (which 1???) Maddison Pulisic Mount Dendoncker

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Vimes (No Arsenal Players)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      19 days, 12 hours ago

      B. Mane and KDB better points potential than Mount... surely?

  5. AzzaroMax99
    • 3 Years
    19 days, 12 hours ago

    I already spent my 2 FT. Bought Tielemans and Jimenez.
    If Salah out, Mane for a hit is a no brainer?

  6. LM00091
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    19 days, 12 hours ago

    G2G for GW13?

    (3-5-2)
    Ryan / (Button)
    TAA, Lundstram, Söyüncü (Rico, Tomori)
    Mane(c), Salah, Mount, Tielemans, KDB
    Vardy, Abraham (Greenwood)

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

  7. simong1
    • 1 Year
    19 days, 12 hours ago

    RMT. Any suggested changes? 1 FT, 3.1 ITB

    Pope - Mc Govern
    TAA - Lundstram - Soyuncu - Rico - Willems
    Mane - Mount - KDB - Maddison - Dendocker
    Vardy - Jimenez - Abraham

    1. Taegugk Warrior
      • 1 Year
      19 days, 12 hours ago

      OMG... the only different this with my squad is Pope. I have ryan

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      We have 14/15 of same players!

      I have Salah vs your KDB

      Def G2G imo - I am bricking it having no MCI and an injured Salah!!

  8. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Any Richarlison cappers on here?

        50/50 between the two actually... might flip a coin before deadline! 🙂

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          19 days, 11 hours ago

          Dammit! use the machine already 😉

            it's still having technical difficulties

            1. Hakim Ziyech
              19 days, 11 hours ago

              I slapped mine & it worked last gw. Would do the same this gw except if otherwise. GL buddy 🙂

    2. GuenDoozy
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Sterling

    3. Alexxx
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      sticking with Vardy

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Think he is bet option this GW. Would cap if I had.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        19 days, 11 hours ago

        *best

    5. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Imo the best 3 captain choices this week are Sterling. Mane. Vardy.

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        19 days, 11 hours ago

        Agreed. In what order though?
        Currently considering them in the order you wrote them

    6. Smurf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Yep. Had him 4 GW’s now with the plan of captaining him this GW in mind.

    7. KDB4PREZ
      19 days, 10 hours ago

      Between him and Kun for me still undecided

  9. Vitamin C
    • 5 Years
    19 days, 12 hours ago

    2 FTs and 0.0 ITB
    Kun & Yarmo to Auba & Tiely Y or N?

    Thanx

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      19 days, 12 hours ago

      N

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      I wouldn't want Aub personally

    3. Nuno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Nobody likes Auba here but I'd be tempted. Arsenal are not in the best of form though but they do have the fixtures to generate it.

  10. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    19 days, 12 hours ago

    3pm games are going to be interesting this Saturday with 8 starters (hopefully) for me and then 2 more in the 5.30pm!
    FPL Super Saturday 🙂

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      19 days, 12 hours ago

      A Heartbeat marathon would be more interesting than this IB.

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Same! 8@ 3pm, 2@ 5:30 and Lunds the next day

  11. Taegugk Warrior
    • 1 Year
    19 days, 12 hours ago

    Ryan
    TAA/Lundstram/Willems
    Mane/debruyne/maddison/mount
    Vardy/abraham/jimenez

    Mcgovern-Soyuncu-Rico-dendocker
    1FT.

    A. Willems to Robo
    B. Save FT.

    1. cheeky moses
      • 4 Years
      19 days, 12 hours ago

      Wait for news on Robbo injury

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Looks fine

      I'm personally playing Soy over Willems but it's relatively close

  12. cheeky moses
    • 4 Years
    19 days, 12 hours ago

    Got 4.8 ITB, best replacement for King as third striker:
    A) Auba
    B) Ings (save money for upgrades elswhere)
    C) Jimmy (save money for upgrades elswhere)

    Current team:
    Ryan
    TAA, Soy, Lund
    Mané, KDB, Maddison, Mount
    Vardy, Tammy, (...)

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      C

      1. cheeky moses
        • 4 Years

        cheers

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Identical set up plus Pulisic in midfield and Pope in goal and a rotting Ota

      Went Ings to rotate with Mount. Glorious fixtures and decent bench cover should KdB get a rest (think he will).

      Like idea of cash itb for the busy period. Also eying Son from Mount.

      1. cheeky moses
        • 4 Years
        19 days, 11 hours ago

        Nice! Yeah I like Ings. Only concern is his fitness over a busy period.

    3. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      C. I wouldn't go near any arsenal Player atm

  13. Atimis
    • 3 Years
    19 days, 12 hours ago

    Worth risking (c) Auba over Vardy?

    1. cheeky moses
      • 4 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      yes imo.

    2. Tomerick
      • 5 Years

    A-Yarmolenko
    B-Mount

    D-Lundstram

    Who to Captain?
    1-Vardy

    2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Between A and C for me

      Sterling. Home advantage in what could be a free scoring game. But you can't go wrong with either of them imo.

    3. GuenDoozy
      19 days, 11 hours ago

  17. Heiro
    • 10 Years
    19 days, 11 hours ago

    Hi all,

    2 Free Transfers

    Pope (buttton)
    Tamori Arnold Lundstrum (Kelly-Otamendi)
    KDB Mount Madisson Salah (Cantwell)
    Jiminez Abraham Vardy

    1: Is Pereira worth it over Chillwell and Chillwel worth it over Soyuncu?
    2: Salah to Mane worth it yet or wait?
    3: Salah and Otamendi to Mane & Periera?
    4: Upgrade Mount to Pulisic

    Decisions decisions. Team looks very template which I hate.

    1. Bavarian
      • 1 Year
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Otamendi > Soyuncu

    2. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      1. Prob, Maybe
      2. Wait on injury update
      3. see 2
      4. still a bit sideways for me

    3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      1. Depends on how you spend the spare Cash in either scenario
      2. Wait for presser and then decide
      3. Could you just do Ota to Pereira?
      4. Depends on the SV of Mount. If you like me bought him at 6.0 I would defo keep for now

    4. GuenDoozy
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      1. No, Maybe
      2. Worth it
      3. Dont see why not
      4. Yes

    5. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      1) yes - no
      2) only if injured
      3) depends on injury status
      4) not this week

  18. Hakim Ziyech
    19 days, 11 hours ago

    Good luck all! It feels like a gw with a low average score. I hope not & we all smash it

      1. GuenDoozy
        19 days, 11 hours ago

        Must be Martial

      2. Hakim Ziyech
        19 days, 11 hours ago

        Jamie Vardy most likely 🙂 . I would still use our machine on Friday to be sure. Hopefully it is 10/13 this weekend... Best of luck this gw buddy

    Thoughts on this WC?

    Henderson Pope
    TAA Robertson Pereira (Lundstram Rico)
    Mane Maddison Martial Pulisic (Dendoncker)
    Vardy Abraham Jimenez

    1. nibby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Looks good. No city is a concern though.

      1. Nuno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        19 days, 11 hours ago

        The only City asset I'm looking at is Dilva, I think the cheaper players in the 7-8m range can match them over this stretch of fixtures until GW20

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Shame you can't play Lundstram

      1. Nuno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        19 days, 11 hours ago

        If rotation is such a big deal then I'm sure he will be in and out as first sub

    3. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Downgrade Pereira to Soy.

      1. Nuno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        19 days, 11 hours ago

        To be the same as everybody else?
        What would you do with 1.5m?

        1. AK_FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          19 days, 10 hours ago

          Honestly would bank for now. 3 premium defenders is far too much especially considering Lundstrams form and upcoming fixtures. The money ITB will make it easier to bring in another premium mid/forward when necessary.

  20. nibby
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    19 days, 11 hours ago

    Who to bring in for Haller?
    A) Lacazette
    B) Firmino
    C) Jimmy
    Got Vardy and Tammy ATM. TIA

      18 people think he's the GWs best captain last time I checked the poll so keep 😉
      If not I'd opt for Jimenez

        LMAO

  21. golfboy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Any other Salah captainers on here (if confirmed fit!). Or am I being too 2017/2018?

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      19 days, 11 hours ago

      Unfortunately I'm pretty sure we won't be given the satisfaction of a definitive "He's fit to play" or "He's not fit to play".

      Knowing Klopp and the type of injury it's going to be a "we need to monitor and see in training and decide last minute" type of conclusion imo

      1. golfboy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        19 days, 11 hours ago

        Yes I fear you are right, armband on Vardy, start the party

      Prefer Mane in this fixture. Prefer Vardy over both.

    If Salah is declared fit which transfer?
    A mount to Pulisic
    B Sterling to Mane

    rest of mid Maddison KDB Salah

      I'd be more worried about losing Sterling that Mount, so A for that reason.

    Finding this thought process challenging. My attack is fine but will probably make a change next week.
    My defence is a bit rubbish. I’m considering saving a transfer and playing Mendy this week, hoping that he plays. The idea would be to then simply shift Mina out next week ahead of his crazy fixtures.

    What would you do here? Save FT or move on a defender this week for TAA or Chilwell.
    Def:
    Mendy Alderweireld Mina Kelly Lord

      I'd probably take a hit to be honest. Mendy and Alderweireld out for TAA and other.
