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

        I know 🙁

        Can't even really bench boost as it's a midweek round and there could be rotation

      Maybe Mcgovern to David to not waste the transfer and have another playing GK (if only for a few weeks)? Better option than Pope this week as well?

      Also, I'd start Tammy ..

      Pretty poor play not to leave yourself in a position where you need to use your wildcard. I manage to do this every season.

      1. shirtless
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Last year I used it on Dec 30th for housekeeping. I don't think two wildcards are strictly necessary to be honest.

    2. Rains of Castamere

      What's your OR?

      1. shirtless

        20k at present.

    3. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Nice team. I would find a replacement for Tammy as he looks to be out still and there are nice options to hold his place for now.

    4. PrettyDick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Unreal team management. My hat off to you

  5. Turns

    % chance Tammy plays?

      25%

    2. Qaiss

    3. popcoin

      25% atm I think

    4. mir

      Personally think he'll be on the bench with Bats starting this time. This will be treated as his little rest before the busy period kicks in.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Sounds sensible

    5. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 8 months ago

      It does look like he´s not gonna play vs Villa, but I will keep him anyway

  6. theodosios
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 8 months ago

    Bench Soyuncu or Tomori?

  7. popcoin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 8 months ago

    Thoughts on Lampard's comments on Tammy?

    ‘We will find out more today and tomorrow. He needs to get outside and move a little bit outside over the next two days.’

    The fact that the injury was Wednesday and he still hadn't got running outside until today, worries me as an owner

    1. theodosios
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      By this comment I think he will definitely miss next two games

    2. ElliotJHP
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      I highly doubt he will play

    3. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Misses Villa. In with a chance against Everton

    4. popcoin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      cheers all. will proabably transfer out for Jimmy

  8. Bubbles1985
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 8 months ago

    Abraham owners...

    Are you keeping hold or shifting on?
    I still have WC but tempted to move Sterling to Mane for now!

    1. theodosios
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      It's too late to sell now...

      1. Captain_Shirokov
        • 2 Years

        How so?

      2. Bubbles1985
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        For what reason?

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      No point deciding until we hear the presser imo. Dullard in me might be tempted to bench again but it feels wrong

    3. Bubbles1985
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Admittedly I have had him for a while so a lot of cash in him!

  9. Better luck next year

      Yes, with Cantwell first on bench

        Cheers.

      2. JoeSoap

        1 year, 8 months ago

        Agree

  10. Captain_Shirokov
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 8 months ago

    What to do with this front 8?

    Sterling(!) - Mane - Maddison - Mount(!) - Dendoncker
    Vardy - Jimenez - Tammy(!)

    Would like to get Alli or Son in. Zaha an option too, Mousset/Ings are nice cheap Tammy replacements.

    2 fts, 0.5m in the bank, thoughts?

  11. Rains of Castamere
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 8 months ago

    Am I mad for wanting Kane? I have Son already but if FPL has taught me anything in recent years, it's that Harry Kane loves festive fixtures. I know Alli is in form but I don't think I could put the armband on him. Kane represents a real captaincy option, particularly in BGW18 when captains are sparse as he loves London derbies too.

    I also see GW16 and BUR as a potential 26-pointer.

    1. El Lobito 10
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Good luck. Just trolled me once again as my captain. Alli and Son better fpl options

    2. warlock22
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 8 months ago

      had him all season, I wouldn't bet against him being top scorer from here till end of season ... but he needs to start

      1. warlock22
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 8 months ago

        * start doing it

    1 FT 2.4 ITB

    Thoughts on this lot ?

    Pope
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram
    Sterling Mane Mount Maddison
    Ings Jimenez Vardy

    Button, Rico, Dendoncker, Dunk

    a) Mount to Alli or Pulisic
    b) Sterling to Son
    c) Save and get rid of Sterling and Mount next GW

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Think I'd be inclined to save this week and hold Mount and Sterling for one more

  13. lindeg
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 8 months ago

    odds on scoring:

    mount: 2.8
    zaha: 3.3

    just saying

    1. Party time
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Odds don't mean sht imo. Just saying

        1. lindeg
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          i know people on here like to consider themselves experts, but are you really a bigger expert than those getting paid to make the odds?

          1. Party time
              1 year, 8 months ago

              I think so 🙂

      • JoeSoap
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Best use of 2FTs?

        Have 0.6 in bank. Keeper an option and maybe Abraham if fit. Like Son but hard to fit him in without removing Mane/KDB.

        Pope
        Robby, Lund, Soyu
        Mane, Maddy, KDB, Mount
        Vardy, Jimmy, Rash
        Gazza, Tomori, Dendo, Rico,

        1. Better luck next year
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Good team. Would switch Pope to Henderson and keep 1FT.

        2. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Hmm that's not easy as I would say Alli/ Son are better options than KDB atm but Kevin is always going to end up a great long term FPL asset.

          Really not sure what I would do - maybe just the keeper move this week.

          1. Better luck next year
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 8 months ago

            Agree on Son/Alli, but that move could wait to after United away. Save 1FT and you'll manage to get one of the Spurs mids in for next GW.

            1. JoeSoap
              • 7 Years
              1 year, 8 months ago

              Was thinking similar myself and hoping Utd/Spurs is low scoring.

        3. JoeSoap
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Thanks all. Keeper the obvious move for me unless Abraham is declared fit. Could get Son next week but would have to do Rico>Kelly this week and then Mount/Rash>Son/Ings. Would need no price rises/falls for these players though.

      • as33
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Mount or Cantwell to start?

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          That's tough but because of fixture I would say Mount as I think he starts this match.

        2. FlytzoBazooka
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Cantwell

        3. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Cantwell 17 pts last 2 GW. He could easily have had another goal vs Arsenal. He looks fresh and sharp, unlike Mount.

        4. El Lobito 10
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Form over fixtures always. Cantwell

      • Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Would appreciate you views on this - apologies it's a bit long!

        Afternoon all

        After using my FT over the weekend, I am planning to hold on further moves this GW.
        I'm not usually one to plan moves looking weeks ahead but I was just playing around and have seen I could do these moves over the next 2-3 weeks at a cost of -4 / -8:

        Pope > Guaita
        Rico > Aurier
        Mount > Pulisic
        Dendo > Zaha/ Grealish

        This would give me the following team with £2.3m itb and flexibility to bring in MCI and potentially to just bench my LIV assets in GW18 for the blank:

        2.3itb
        Guaita, McGovern
        TAA, Soy, Lunds, Willems, Aurier
        Mané, Alli, Maddison, Pulisic, Zaha/ Grealish
        Vardy, Jimi, Ings

        Keen to get your thoughts. Looking at the moves, they are all upgrades and should pay back any hits within a couple of weeks.

        Thanks

        1. JoeSoap
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Will leave you with benching problems bar wk18.

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 8 months ago

            I think based on fixtures it wouldn’t be terrible to pick 2 defenders to bench from those and rotate Ings/ Grealish for starts.

            I could forget the Rico > Aurier move and leave myself even more itb?

        Behind the curve(template)?

        Who else feels like they're behind the curve in terms of, there are loads of players I want to bring in, but only 1FT a week.

        e.g.
        Rico > Aurier
        Mount > Pulisic or Maddison or Zaha

        Did Barnes (differential that didn't pay off) > Alli this week already.

        1. FlytzoBazooka
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Go for Pulisic

        2. Would Ed Woodward
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          I'd like Aurier but wouldn't wanna do Rico to him, already have a benching headache as it is without putting more money into it.

        1 year, 8 months ago

        I don’t think Pulisic gets rested mid week

        1. He hasn’t played as many games as others due to now being picked earlier on in the season

        2. If Tammy is still out I could see him staying up top after lanyards comments

        3. He’s Chelsea most inform attacker

      • Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Any thoughts on which option between Mousset and Ings? Mousset opurely because he is cheaper?

        1. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

        2. Fit_to_drop
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 8 months ago

          I've seen plenty of Mousset in last few weeks and think if he's not scoring he'll be assisting. Plus good fixtures.

      • Ëð

        Good to save the FT this week? Might look to get Son/Alli after this GW.

          I've got a fairly similar team (I think most on here do in fairness), and one thing I'm considering is Pope to Guaita.

          I hate transfers for a GK generally but think it may prove quite shrewd over the next 6-8 games.

            I have been considering it too, although I think I'd probably opt for Henderson. Maybe next week!

        Who to captain?

        A. Son ( playing agains wan bissaka)
        B. Sterling (possibly rested vs burnley away)
        C. Jimenez
        D.e bryne

        Had Son as my Captain for the last three weeks, i feel like i should continue. Thougts?

          Not keen on those options frankly but one of the city mids

          No Leicester or Liverpool player then? They are probably the besr captain options. I’d captain Sterling out of those.

        Pope (Button)
        Robbo TAA Lordstram (Rico,Hanley)
        Mane De Bruyne Maddison Perez (Guenduzi)
        Mousset Ings Vardy

        Tempted to bring either Alli or Son in for Perez, but maybe wait for 1 more week since Manu tend not to lose at Old Trafford? Alli is thriving under Mourinho but Son has been the more consistent one? Who‘d you rather get?

          I’d get Son but probably after Man U match. Both managers play with defensive tactics in big games, so we might see both teams parking the bus and playing counter attack on Wednesday.

        If you had to treble up on Spurs, who would you take?

        1. Halberstram
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Son, Alli, Aurier

      • The Fed

        Thoughts on this:

        Pope (Button)

        Tomori, Soy, Lord (Kelly, Rico)

        Salah, Sterling, KDB, Mount (Lansbury)

        Ings, Jimmy, Vardy(C)

        3.0m ITB. 1 FT.

        A) Pope > Hendo/Schmeichel

        B) Tomori > TAA

        C) Mount > Alli

          Alli outperforming Mount could easily be the summary for Spurs outperforming Chelsea.

        I can afford Mount-Alli, Cantwell-Pulisic, Roberto (I know...) to Martin for the exact funds across the next two gameweeks for a -4, to give me a line-up of:

        Pope
        TAA-Soy-Lundy
        KDB-Mane-Son-Alli-Pulisic
        Abraham-Vardy

        (Martin, Rico, C.Taylor, Connolly)

        Thoughts? Too much Spurs? Do you think I should keep Cantwell and play 3-4-3 moving forwards, upgrading Connolly to a Rashford-type striker?
