    Any suggestions what to do with the below? Need a 11th player to avoid playing Rico but too many options with 2 FTs, so would really appreciate any input.

    2FTs, 1.3 itb

    Gazza
    TAA Chilwell Lundstram Rico
    Mane KDB Son Martial
    Vardy Jimenez

    Bench: Button, Batshuayi, Dendoncker, Reid

      rico -> kelly
      and play batshuyi instead of martial
      next week
      martial-> alli

        I'd definitely play Batshuayi if I knew he'd start, but it doesn't seem like it. For some reason, he seems out of favour. First Giroud starting over him, then Lampard talking about possibly playing Pulisic up front. Anyway it was always gonna be a short term punt so can't complain too much.

        Kelly is a good shout and 100% agree with the Martial to Alli move.

        Thanks for the suggestions!

      Batsu > Ings or Mousset
      And safe
      Or Dendoncker/Martial > Zaha/Pulisic

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        5 days, 12 hours ago

        Can't afford the 2nd one unfortunately but I can do Batshuayi, Dendoncker to Mousset, Zaha. Only issue is I wouldn't able to afford Martial to Alli next GW if I do that move, which is what I was planning on.

      depending on lamps presser Bats could be in for a shout if Abraham not fit. Giroud outplayed himself out of the team last saturday

      rico away to Palace ain´t the worst even if i think palace score as Bou are in bad shape with some injuries. King is actually important to the team, not just in scoring goals but his work rate is fenomenal.

    I've just noticed how bad Callum Wilson's form has been. 7 attacking returns in the first 7 games. 0 attacking returns in the last 7 games.

      So he's a 1 in 2 man? Sounds consistent.

    There is a lot of talk of Pope -> Hendo (for most a double up with Lund). I’m still thinking Schmeichel is a better bet for a double up with Soy. Thoughts?

    1. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Schmeichel a more expensive option and limits number of Leicester offensive players you can have. I’d say most have Vardy and a midfield option also.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        5 days, 12 hours ago

        Are any of their mids really worth having? Maddy at a push otherwise no

    2. popcoin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Yes I’d rather Schmeicel. But I’d have to take a hit and sell Maddison as have 3 Leicester players

    Who to start - Tomori or VVD?

    1. popcoin

      VVD!! Villa to score

    Quickfire round:

    Play Aurier at United?

    Henderson or Schmeicel -4?

    Zaha Pulisic or Alli? (Have Son)

    Jiminez or Mousset?

    1. Mind över Mata

        Not for -4

    2. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…

      You have Alli and Son and you're asking which one to bench.

      You're obviously fruiting Bananas!

  7. ItOnlyTook9Years

    Still stuck with yarmalenko for some reason, ship for:

    A) Cantwell
    B) Perez
    C) HWilson
    D) JWP
    E) any other up to 6.4

    1. Totti
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      D

    2. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      might as well just go cantwell but Grealish is best option at 5.9

      1. ItOnlyTook9Years
        • 4 Years
        5 days, 12 hours ago

        Yeah, thinking I'll switch to Grealish in a couple of GWs

    3. valurth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Depends on overall team, but JWP of this bunch based on fixtures

      1. ItOnlyTook9Years

        Ryan
        TAA, Pereira Lund

                I am not quite sure where I have gone wrong this season. I think holding onto Sterling for so long and not switching from Salah to Mane earlier too (only did it last week). I was around 40k for the first 5 GWs and now find myself at 750k and I used my WC last week too

                1. ZICO SENNA
                  • 8 Years
                  5 days, 12 hours ago

                  Samae here, i could pretty much safely say holding on to Salah instead of switching to mane has destroyed my season single handedly so far, couple with many captain fails, eurgghh.
                  Lessons learnt, onwards we go.

                  B. A and C will concede

                      • 3 Years
                      5 days, 12 hours ago

                      A and C will definitely concede, B will only most likely concede

                      1. Maddamotha
                        • 3 Years
                        5 days, 12 hours ago

                        B will most likely concede out of those. Its Villa at Stamford Bridge.

                        1. The Big Fella

                          In reality all 3 will concede. I still think Villa defend better than B'mouth and United are just shite.

                    A. Alli ( United away)
                    B. Pulisic (Villa Home)

                    Looks like Martial is dropping. Over 2 gws, Alli, Pulisic in for Martial, McGinn.

                      This for a -4?

                      Mount + Tielemans + Heaton -> Alli + Grealish + McCarthy

                      Team would be

                      Pope
                      TAA Robbo Soy Lund
                      Mane KDB Alli
                      Vardy (C) Jimenez Abraham

                      McCarthy 1) Grealish 2) Cantwell 3) Tomori

                        GW 18 seems ample to get Grealish, why now with hard fixtures?

                        How long will Kelly be in the team (roughly)?

                        I want to bring in bench fodder so thinking of Targett to cover Söyüncü

                          what do you mean 'Targett to cover Soyuncu"?

                            I should have explained better - I probably wouldn't play him in their fixtures v City and Liverpool
                            Villa play Sou, Nor those GWs

                              Ahhh gotcha, i thought that's what you meant was just making sure. Targett is a great asset to have imo especially when their fixtures ease up around GW17/18

                            Maybe upgrade Mount and hold the other?

                              Im planning that, just not sure before Villa. Afraid Pulisic might get rested in one of the next 2.

                            Pope to Gazzaniga?

                              Why Gazzaniga? Considering Hendo, Guatia or schmeichel

                          Would a bench of Cantwell, Kelly Tomori & Pope tempt any of you into a BB this week?

                            Mount to punish the sellers maybe?

                              Anyone else as stubborn as me still holding Sterling & Salah? Been rubbish lately, but have to haul soon right?

                                Even though i'd say definitely get rid of both, i think at least one has to go, midfield could do wit ha refresh for sure.
                                I had to boot Salah (have Mane as well) this GW, just simply not on it at all....like not even a little bit.

                                    Yeah, want Maddison/Tielemans but already have 3 Leicester. I'm thinking Aguero back when fit (though he's killed me this year) for Kane, Sterling to Ali, Mcginn to Maddison, but need a decent defender in Soy price range...

                                    1. ZICO SENNA
                                      • 8 Years

                                      Can still understand wanting a Leicester mid, great value, i've owned Tielemans the last 4 games though and he's on thin ice.
                                      Aguero i'd tend to steer away from but by the time he's back huge differential. Would rather have Alli/Son instead of Kane, i like Tthe Sterling > Alli move though. Possibly a doube up in Sheff Ut'd defence as a Soy alternative.

                                      1. Bream Reaper
                                          5 days, 11 hours ago

                                          Yeah, only just got Kane in for Aguero, reasoning being he should be playing higher up now, and takes pens, plus not very well owned. Looks like Ali would have been the better alternative, but thought Sterling would be main man now Aguero out, and wanted at least 1 city attacking option. I've already got two Sheff def, that's my dilemma
