FPL Gameweek 14 review: what we learned from the weekend’s matches

Almost exactly 48 hours separate the completion of Gameweek 14 with the deadline for Gameweek 15, so the quick turnaround means we are unable to bring you individual Scout Notes on all ten Premier League matches that took place this weekend.

You can read about how Liverpool and Manchester City assets got on in their respective fixtures on Saturday by clicking the links below, however.

    Hey guys any ideas what to do here to improve:

    Pope
    Roberston Soy Lundstram Rico
    Maddison Mount KDB Mane
    Vardy Jimenez

    Heaton Kelly Dendoncker Abraham

    2 FTs, 0.8 ITB. Thinking to switch up a GK?

    1. Devo-McDuff
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      Yep. Dendo to Cantwell another option rather than burn

  2. Lucas8406
    8 months, 7 days ago

    Which move
    A) Pope to Henderson or Guaita
    B) Mount out for someone under £9m
    C) Abraham out for someone under £10m

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      B to Alli/Son

      1. ameisin
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 7 days ago

        This ^.

        But wait on news for Abraham. Looks like he'll be fit for AVL game.

    2. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      Pope to Hendo. Mount move will keep for after he has AVL at home.

    2. Regin

    Morning guys

    Got my squad for the Xmas period.

    How is it looking?
    Got to get benching headaches sorted each weekend, but do like its flexibility.

    Guita, Button
    Willems, Robbo, Lunds, Soy, Aurier
    Mane, KDB, Pulisic, Grealish, Alli
    Vardy, Mousset, Laca

    Thanks

  5. ‘Tis the Season
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 7 days ago

    Not sure what to do next.
    Keep Kane or swop Alli/son for Mount and bring in Ings.
    Any suggestions?

    1. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      I only just brought in Kane to cover Abraham injury, feels like a mistake now but will give him United and then Burnley at home to show his worth. This at least gives me more info on which of Alli/Son to get if I decide to reverse the move.

    2. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…

      • 11 Years

    Save FT?

    Will sell 2-3 out of Tomori, Tielemans, Mount or Kane for the weekend games.

    Main targets are Aurier/Targett, Son, Alli & Tammy.

    1. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      Mount -> Son/Alli imo

  9. Miguel Sanchez
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 7 days ago

    Is there a scoutcast before midweek games?

    1. Flynny
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      Don't think so.

      I recommend fpl general podcast. It's only 40 mins long and is just the right level of technical detail for someone who doesn't have a great deal of time ... he has one out today I think. Of course scoutcast also good!

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 7 days ago

        Cheers, will look out for it

      2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years

        Does he do it alone?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 7 days ago

          Sounded like it from the bit I just listened to. Was addressing questions and comments posted to him.

          1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 7 days ago

            OK. Might give it a spin. Most of my family has the same accent so I have a head start 🙂

            1. Flynny
              • 5 Years
              8 months, 7 days ago

              It's called 59th minute

    2. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      yes there is

  10. unitednations
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 7 days ago

    Who would you get rid between

    A: Martial
    - two tough fixtures but he is nailed
    - already have rashford
    - replacement options: zaha, Maddison, Pulisic, Alli

    B: Mount
    - off form
    - don’t have tammy so if both Mount and Tammy do well midweek, could be a rank killer
    - replacement options: Zaha, Maddison, Pulisic

    C: Neither
    - both have home fixtures, both are nailed
    - give them one more gw
    - benefit of saving is I could get Son with 2FTs. Ie Martial + Mount >> Son + Grealish

    1. teneighty
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      I would save or do C for a hit.

    2. Stef rocks
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      C - I like Son Grealish more than Martial Mount, but not for this Gw - from next Gw so just hold

    3. Devo-McDuff
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      C for sure, that’s a great couple of transfers next week

  11. Flynny

      What tweet ?

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      8 months, 7 days ago

      A

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 7 days ago

        Hendo

    3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      I'm getting a spurs mid for Martial I expect. So maybe A then get Alli?

    4. Me Spurs
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      I’d do A but unsure to which one myself

  12. fish&chips
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 7 days ago

    Anyone watch the Leicester game? How did Maddison play? I'm considering trading for Alli as I'll be priced out soon but seems silly to transfer before Watford at home. Does he look like picking up some points any time soon?

    1. Regin
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      I don't rate Madison so much as fpl asset. He has like 3 g, 3 a all season which is just ok but nothing great.

    2. Puncheon Guly
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      Maddison looked good. On another day he could've had a couple. I'd hold

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 7 days ago

        Thanks for your opinions guys

    3. Hktrader88
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 7 days ago

      Maddison looked good, but my main concern with Leicester, is that they have so many players that are a threat. Its brilliant from a results point of view but for fpl it means points are spread around. Chilwell, Ricardo, Maddison, Tielemens, Perez, Barnes all seem likely to grab an assist or a goal. Maddison has set pieces, but I'm not sure if that is worth the premium over Tielemans, as he had 7 returns compared to Tielemans 6. Perez seems a constant threat but is always likely do be subbed off around the 60 minutes mark, and Iheanacho had a great 20 minutes so not sure what will happen there.

      FYI Maddison has 7 returns in 13 games, Martial has 6 returns in 8 games (9 games of you include a 6 minute cameo when he came back from injury). Personally I have Tielemans but looking at trying to raise funds to upgrade him to Alli.

      1. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 7 days ago

        Martial is a fluke. Only 10 SiB, same as VVD

        1. Hktrader88
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 7 days ago

          Where do you see 10 SiB? The stats on this site show 23 attempts with 14 being in the box, for this season in 8 starts. (which admittedly is still not great)

          1. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
            • 11 Years
            8 months, 7 days ago

            not 14. that is plus with six yard box shots. check the math

    4. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      he missed 1 on 1 clear chance. his through balls and set pieces were terrible and way off his standards

      1. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 7 days ago

        maddison that

  13. balint84
    • 4 Years

    Dunk, Willems or Cahill (or another cheaper CP defender)?

    1. balint84
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      or Zouma?

    2. Regin
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      Dunk great long term option. Problem he scores against big teams when I bench him.

  14. Hazardous1983

    C. Both

    If he doesn't..
    1. Abraham to Ings/Mousset and Martial to Son (-4)
    2. Abraham to Greenwood, Dendo to Alli (-4)

    Morning,

    Early captain thoughts for midweek?

    My options

    A. Ings (norwich)
    B. Vardy (watford)
    C. Jimi (West ham)
    D. Mane (everton)

    Dare I do ings vs Norwich?

    1. Regin
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 7 days ago

      There is nothing to think or ask.
      Vardy

      1. Bat Man

  19. diesel001

    Come on Tammy! Fall in price again.

  20. Regin
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 7 days ago

    I have 3 potential transfers I can do, but want to do only 1 as hit unnecessary.
    A. Pope/ krul to guaita
    B. Mount to pulisic/ Alli
    C. Martial to pulisic/Alli

    I am leaning mount to pulisic as pulisic looks great long term option.
    Currently don't have Tammy.

  21. Kaiser123
    8 months, 7 days ago

    Nothing ITB. I want to get rid of Pope, but feel he may get a few save points this week.
    Not touching this side this week then.
    Pope
    TAA Robbo Soy

    1. Bat Man

    1. Jam0sh

      Probably save

    2. Phlajo
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 7 days ago

      Defienetely save.

      Pulisic could be rested. Tielemans have awesome fixtures.
