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

    Pope
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram Robbo
    Kdb Mane Martial Pulisic
    Jimenez Vardy
    Button Rico Dendo Abraham*
    1m 1ft
    Best approach?
    A. Pope to Henderson
    B. Martial to Alli
    C. Both for hit.
    D. Sell Abraham. Tammy/Martial to Ings or Mousset/Son (-4).
    E. Sell Abraham. Tammy/Dendo to Alli and Greenwood (-4).

    I suppose its on Frank's presser.

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I did B yesterday. Dropped Tammy last week for a hit for Ings

    2. FALSE PROFIT

      Greenwood?

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Bench fodder

      Is Alli a priority this GW with Utd away? I'm considering him but not until the weekend when they play Burnley. Jose will set Spurs up defensively. Expect s tight game.

      I'd actually save a transfer with your team.

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Interesting. It's true Alli could wait and weirdly I might bench Martial if Abraham makes it (ridiculous I know!)

        1. Le Bluff
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Yeah, you have a real power 8 there!

  2. Miniboss

    If Abraham is fit, who to swap in for Martial & Maddison?

    A) Alli & Zaha
    B) Son & Graelish

    0.6itb, 2ft

    Pope Button
    TAA Soyuncu Tomori Lundstraem Rico
    Mane KdB Maddison Martial Dendoncker
    Vardy Abraham Jimenez

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A for me.

      alli wont be scoring a brace every week surely, son will be scoring or assisting most weeks, grealish a good player too, I'd go with that.

      Zaha has good fixtures yes but I don't trust his output

    6. Miniboss

      thanks for input fellas

    Say it louder for those at the back: There Will Be Rotation (both in GW15 and GW16). You can’t avoid it, if you dodge it altogether it’s only because of pure luck, we’re all in the same boat, you can try to reduce the effects with a good bench or avoiding flaky players... but There Will Be Rotation. Make your peace with it, and move on.

      thats' why i have 8 attackers for this period

    Good to save? Tempted to ship martial but not sure. Any advice welcomed

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I shipped Martial to Alli yesterday but wouldn't advice a double Spurs midfield. I would save or drop Gaza

  5. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Mount even likely to start in the Villa game?

    1. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I'd say he still has as good a chance as any.

      Lampard's comments re. Pulisic having the qualities to play as a striker are interesting. If Abraham is ruled out, possibility that Pulisic plays up front which will increase the likelihood of Mount starting IMO.

    2. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Yep. At home against the so called lesser teams then Chelsea play 2 of Jorginho, Kovacic & Kante with an attacking midfielder (usually Mount). Against bigger teams or certain away fixtures its all 3 with no Mount.

  6. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Anyone benching Tammy for a second time if he's not fit?

    1. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Probably. I'd have Cantwell first sub (served me very well this GW), and would be happy for him to come on for Abraham with playing Southampton away.

      I have 0 ITB so can't get to Jiminez. Already have Ings and Vardy so no other alternatives.

    2. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Yes, but I have a strong bench (Mount, Cantwell, Lundstram) so with Lord's fixtures it's a no brainer

    3. Phlajo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Yeah, probably even keeping him if he's out next 2.

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Yes, if you have a bench and have held till now.

  7. bow478
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Stupid question, will this coming week count as a double gameweek (15&16) - if so TC Vardy?

    1. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      No.

    2. Trane84
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      It's 15 AND 16, so there's your answer.

  8. afs2239
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Pope
    Stevens lundyy chilwell
    KDB Mane Pulisic Willian
    Tammy Vardy Rashford

    Gunn cantwell adam smith aurier

    What to do?
    A) Bring a GK instead of gunn for free
    B) changing elsewhere
    C) save

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Save unless you fancy changing Pope for Guita?

      1. afs2239
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Im thinking the same
        But gunn to guiata
        Gunn is at 4.5 and not playing

  9. Thunder Warrior
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Pulisic or Zaha?

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Pulisic plays for the better side

    2. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Pulisic. Not buying into the Zaha hype just yet.

    3. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Zaha

    4. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Easily Pulisic. A 9m player if he keeps starting

      1. Le Bluff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        This. I don't own him but fear a haul every GW!

  10. HD7
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Gazza*
    TAA Lund Robbo
    Mane KDB Maddy Pulisic
    Ings Jimenez Vardy

    Subs: Button, Willems, Hayden, Rico

    Gazza to:
    A) Hendo (it will be a double with Lund for their nice fix)
    Next GW: Maddy to Alli
    B) Schmeichel (as I havent got a Leicester defender)
    Next GW: Maddy to Zaha

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      B but dont get rid of Maddison for now.

  11. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)

    Worth keeping Tielemans for Leicester's next 3?

    Thinking Mount out for Zaha/Grealish this week and Tielemans to Son/Alli next week.

    Could also keep Tielemans for next 3 and do Mount to Alli next week.

    Thoughts?

    1. Phlajo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Im keeping Tielemans myself for next 3 even though I got the cash to up him to 9m.

      I did Mount to Zaha yesterday.

      Im a happy Son owner, and will consider Alli depending on eye test next 2 GWs. Double Spurs mid just seems reckless, but could work.

    2. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I have Tielemans and don't fancy moving him on, dangerous against Everton and every week

    3. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Ask yourself why you bought him. He's a solid one in four or five player. If you wanted a nailed, injury free, reliable player then keep him, if he's in a spot you play hokey cokey with then fair enough consider moving on. All I would say is that sometimes these players you can just trust are worth their weight in gold

    4. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I would go with 2nd choice.

      Tielmans should have got something vs Everton

    5. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Cheers for the thoughts guys!

      Will keep Tielemans for Leicester's next 3 and then look at Grealish from there.

    After my 7th green arrow In a row and finally breaching the million mark I’m starting to become competitive again within my mini leagues and want to continue this upwards trend! Community has helped me so far with this upwards trends so thank you and I turn to you again for further advice ha!

    Pope/4
    TAA/Lund/Soy/Rico/Kelly
    Hayden/KDB/Son/Mane/Mount
    4.3/Vardy/Jiminez
    3.8 ITB

    FT already used to put out one fire by replacing boly with Kelly!

    Not sure whether I should look into upgrading Hayden to the likes of zaha etc or even mount to a premium mid!

    Thoughts would be appreciated thanks!

    1. HD7
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Its your choice 3-5-2 with Zaha etc or 3-4-3 with Ings for example.

      Switch Pope to Hendo Guaita Schmeichel when you can

      1. payetisgod
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah... not sure on Ings against Norwich they look decent and quite creative again... wouldn’t be entirely shocked if they ran riot against soton!

  13. linkafu
    7 months, 11 days ago

    James (MU) to Ward prowse for -4???

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Looks fine on paper

    2. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Not for me. I'd prefer Zaha if you can afford but still not sure I'd do for -4

    3. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      step away from your keyboard

  14. gellinmagellan
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Button Pope
    TAA Lundstram Soy Dunk Rico
    Salah KDB Mount McGinn Dendoncker
    Kane Vardy Ings

    2 FT and 2.0 ITB. What changes should I make?

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Mount to Alli?

      1. gellinmagellan
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        I would like to get Alli/Son in but not sure if that should be my priority this GW with Utd away? Expecting a tight game

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Then you can do something with McGinn or Pope

          1. gellinmagellan
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            Is Kane > Auba worth it? With Mount > Alli the other option this or next GW

    2. JuulKrapuul
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Would rather upgrade Dendoncker, since you have Kane

  15. boc610
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    if gunners come calling Rodgers is going to talk with them, lets not kid ourselves. he must have said 'in this moment in time im comitted to leicester 3 or 4 times'. foxes fans should be worried

    1. BNMC
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Why though? Lei are doing too well for him to just leave.

      1. boc610
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        simple. Arsenal are a bigger club than Leicester. many a manager has left in the middle of something good. and he has a release clause.

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Why join a club with a worse team and less money to spend?

      Other than Aubameyang and Guendouzi, there is noone in that Arsenal team that Leicester would want.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Surely it is better for him to stay at Leicester and finish third (or even second) and look at his options in the summer.

    4. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I'm not worried at all. I think he'd be bonkers to go to Arsenal at the moment. Look the respective squads. Ours is young and full of potential - and we're doing well in the league: Arsenal have an ageing squad which will take time to rebuild .... do the gunners have the money - and the patience,

      If Rogers does go against my guesswork then we're likely to attract a good replacement.

      1. boc610
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        imagine this was la liga and Athelico Madrid were languishing in 8th place way of the title contention and Espanyol were flying and even mounting a title challenge. if athleti went for that manager he's gone, it happens in serie a and the bundesliga all the time. yes on paper why leave when the going is good but celtic were a stepping stone for him and so are Leicester. he knows that spurs, city liverpool are off limits. and that Arsenal team has huge potential and full of young players. just no one is getting a tune out of them , thats all.

    5. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      He's not going to Arsenal to fight for a place in next year's Europa league while Leicester play in the CL

      Christ alive

      1. boc610
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        he talked about a release clause for 'certain circumstances'..this is that certain circumstance. Arsenal are a shambles at the minute, as are united, but they are still massive clubs

    6. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Man, I watched the post match presser... I think if Arsenal come calling He would accept the offer. His expression did not convince me that he would stay. Hopefully he does 🙂

      Lovely

    4. JuulKrapuul
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Very nice team. Would consider:
      Guita --> Henderson & Rico --> Kelly

      Just because I don't trust Bournemouth defence and Guita can be rotated.

      1. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        You think they will rotate their keeper? I've stuck with Rico as I think he's more nailed than Kelly. I didn't really want to double up on any def hence why not going Hendo/Lund. Thanks for the input though appreciated.

      2. Jullepuu
        7 months, 11 days ago

        When has Guaita been rotated?

    5. Holmes

      Solid

    6. fantasyfog

      looks expensive??

      1. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        It is! I've lost some value in Tammy and losing Tomori/Pulisic/Mount etc but on the whole I've done ok with squad value - Squad value: £105.3 In the bank: £0.4. If only I could pick a cpt I might actually be doing ok this season 😛

  17. The 12th Man

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks, yeh the double Liverpool defence really does cause a headache each week. Think I’m downgrading one of them after week 17 to fund Cantwell > Grealish

        1. antis0cial
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          If only they'd start keeping CS's rather than conceding 1 goal per game. I was very tempted on the double up for their fixture run but not sure it's worth it when they are not keeping cs's as it ties up a lot of value, esp when there are a number of reasonably budget defenders doing well. With the blank coming up getting rid of one is wise.

          1. The 12th Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            I will have the unenviable decision to drop TAA or Robbo.

            1. antis0cial
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 11 days ago

              I'm not sure if the stats back me up, but I'd keep TAA, always looks much more of a threat. Then big Virgil bags a brace 😀

      So your going to have Ings and Zaha as your 7th and 8th attacker?
      If your not bothered about points on the bench and a difficult decision every week then yes it looks ok.

      1. Akshatjazz
        7 months, 11 days ago

        So wat donubthink of my team ?? Any change required

        Henderson
        Robbo,soy, lundstrum
        Mane,kbd, Maddison,pulisic
        Jimenez, vardy , Tammy

        Bench: tomori,Ake,fleck,pope

        1. The 12th Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          For this week. I’d probably save then look at Abraham at the weekend if he’s not fit.

          1. Akshatjazz
            7 months, 11 days ago

            If Tammy is not fit I will be playing a 3-5-2 formation Wat do u think abt it ??

    2. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I wouldn't take a hit to get Tammy out just yet, wait for more info, he might play.

      1. Akshatjazz
        7 months, 11 days ago

        So your basically telling me to wait till this gameweek ??

        1. antis0cial
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          As far as I'm aware the deadline is not till Tuesday at 18:30. We could well here he is fit to play before then.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Not if you intend to play 3-4-3 long term. Just a headache.

      1. Akshatjazz
        7 months, 11 days ago

        I think everyone has their eyes set on either 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 at times this can backfire

  19. Oldie99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Play 2:

    Lundstram Willems Kelly Cantwell

    1. Akshatjazz
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Lundstrum & Kelly

    2. cigan
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Lundstram Cantwell

  20. Son v Alli (members)
  21. I hate Moreno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Reckon I'm gonna need the bench this week. 1st sub Dunk (ars) or Rico (cpl)?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Get a tenner on a Dunk hatty.

  22. BNMC
    7 months, 11 days ago

    When do we get another Abraham update?

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      When the team is announced. Doesn't look likely to be fit imo

    2. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      We don’t.

  23. drughi
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    So this is my team for midweek

    Ryan
    TAA Lundstram Soyuncu
    Mane KDB Maddison Mount
    Vardy(C) Jimenez Ings

    0 FT, 3.5 itb.

    A. Mount>Pulisic -4
    B. Mount>Son -4
    C. Mount>Alli -4
    D. Keep Mount one last week

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Puli might play upfront, but on the other hand, surely due a rest soon. D. No need for a hit to get Spurs in this week. Do it for free next week.

      1. drughi
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        cheers what I'm thinking also

  24. Ghost86
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Those with the WC left when are you planning on using it and why?

    1. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Used this week as although was happy with team there were 4 or 5 transfers I'd like to make and I'm happy to bench my two pool players for the blank with the strong bench.

    2. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Running out of time
      Won’t do it midweek with the unknown rotation risk
      Common sense would be gw18 but it depends what your plans are for Liverpool assets

      Leaning towards playing it at the weekend but will reassess post midweek
      What about you?

  25. LC1
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Morning everyone. Hope everyone has a good week!

    Disappointed that I changed my mind on bringing in Son for Mount.

    However, 2 FT's this with;

    Pope
    TAA Soy Lundstrum
    Mane KDB Tielemans Mount
    Abraham Vardy(C) Jimenez.

    Tomori Rico Dendo

    3.5 ITB.

    Could look to move Pope to Henderson?
    Or could still move Mount to Son?

    Any suggestions are much appreciated.

    Thanks

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I'd get Son for free. Chelsea stumbling a bit and Mount not what he was a few months ago.

    As a Palace fan I really hope all those piling in on Wilf are on to something. Sceptical though. Here’s why:

    1 he’s been bang average this season generally
    2 he was a very dodgy asset last time until Bats arrived. Ayew isn’t Bats
    3 Palace are fairly goal shy - he’ll need great GI to be value
    4 the goal against Burnley was as soft as you like

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Thanks Pingu. Very helpful.

    2. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Good, thanks for confirmation... 😀

      Now tell me about Van Aanholt 😉

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Like PvA - and Palace defence overall - but where do you fit him in?

        If Palace do open up slightly - we’ve been very stodgy - he benefits from playing behind Wilf.

        Monitoring but much more likely to go Guaita.

      very wise words from someone who knows

    4. claretparrot

      5 it won't be long before his head is turned by pre-window tapping up

        again*

  27. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    More sensible to do...
    A. Pope to Henderson
    B. Button to Martin
    C. Keep Pope through the rough games

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Inclined to keep myself. Shifting out the nailed Burnley keeper seems a bit of a low priority move to me.

    2. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      If you have 2Fts and nothing to do, then A. Otherwise C

    3. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I was considering B but think I’ll just hold pope and my FT

    4. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      save points galore

  28. cigan
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Ryan Pope
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram Willems Rico
    Mane Sterling DeBruyne Maddison Cantwell
    Vardy Jimenez Connolly

    2 FT / 0.4 itb

    A bit mad I just got priced out of Connolly > Mousset with his rise so ...

    A) Pope > Guaita (exact cash - but might mean investing too much into GK)
    B) Pope > Henderson (but not keen on doubling up on Sheff)
    C) Sterling & Connolly > Son & Ings/Mousset
    D) other priorities?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Easy C - Moussett, just for extra cash in bank it gives.

      1. cigan
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Hmm might be better to do that for the weekend and sort GK first with Sterling having a better fixture than Son this GW (and neither of my GKs having a decent one)?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Persoanlly, I'll probably keep Pope even without an alternative (not a fan of rotating keepers).
          Sterling scored and has been unlucky with some offsides of late, but being outperformed by much cheaper players and City not looking good. 12 million is a huge chunk of your budget.

          1. cigan
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            Fully agree on Sterling - I def. want to get rid but just saying it might be worth waiting a week with this GW's fixtures

            Re: the GK situation - Henderson/Guaita look good until week 20/21, while I don't want to play Pope until 26 (apart from the odd game); could just have Ryan as a set & forget and save money here too tho

          2. cigan
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            Looking at it like that, Pope/Connolly > Martin&Mousset doesn't seem like a bad idea either

  29. JuulKrapuul
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Who to bench this week?
    A) Tielemans (Wat, H)
    B) Mousset (New, H)
    C) Son (MUFC, A)
    D) Alli (MUFC, A)

    1. cigan
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      find someone else but out of these B surely

      1. JuulKrapuul
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Other options are: Mane, KDB, Jiminez or Vardy. So, also not a real option.

    2. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      hmmm I'd want them all on the pitch

  30. Atimis
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    For the weekend:

    1) Auba Maddison Hayden to 4.3 Dele Son -4 (352)
    2) Auba Maddison to Son Tammy (343)
    3) Auba Hayden to Son Mousset (352, Mousset bench).

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      3. why lose Maddison?

      1. Atimis
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Playing deep and/or being wasteful like yesterday

    2. Jurgen Flopp
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I'm dropping Maddison for the weekend too. Grealish or Zaha look better options.
