Who are the best FPL players to sign over the Christmas period?

We’ve assembled another panel of Fantasy managers to address the main topics of discussion ahead of Gameweek 17.

Earlier in the week, we asked you for your Fantasy Premier League-related posers and conundrums.

We’ve selected six questions that covered many of the recurring themes – from strategy over the festive season to Manchester City assets – and put them to our panel.

WHO’S ON THE PANEL THIS WEEK?

G-Whizz – A valued member of our moderator team and currently in his fifth FPL season, G-Whizz managed a personal best finish of 4,404th in 2018/19.

Andy – Pro Pundit, Let’s Talk FPL host and occasional Scoutcaster, Andy has come aboard to Fantasy Football Scout full-time recently. He has two top 10k finishes and an additional three inside the top 20k over the last nine years.

Lateriser – Another one of our Pro Pundits, Lateriser has registered two finishes in the top 200 (one of them equating to number one in India) and four in the top 10,000 in the last six seasons.

QUESTIONS

Jay Arell: Is Christian Pulisic’s time over for now? It’s now four blanks in a row despite his promising stats.

Andy: It certainly feels like Christian Pulisic’s time is up… nearly. I’m currently an owner and four back-to-back blanks has been frustrating, to say the least.

I’m loathe to transfer him out before a home game against Bournemouth though. I made the mistake of selling Mason Mount before the clash with Aston Villa and he went and got himself a goal.

As mentioned in the question, the underlying stats are still looking fairly good. Over the last four Gameweeks, he’s eighth for xG from open play and only Diogo Jota, Gabriel Jesus, Raúl Jiménez and of course Jamie Vardy have had more shots inside the box over the same time.

Bournemouth will potentially be without Nathan Aké, Steve Cook and Adam Smith for Gameweek 17, too.

Disappointment is the only thing I can foresee if I take Pulisic out, before giving him the chance to redeem himself. If he blanks again though there’s a certain well-rested Dele Alli and Son Heung-min that are on my Christmas list.


KHAAAN!!!: What do you believe would be a good differential strategy to adopt for any managers outside of the top 100k with a “template” team, who might be struggling to catch up?

Lateriser: If you don’t already know my playing style, I am someone who doesn’t believe in paying too much attention to the ownership of players. If you are outside the top 100k, it doesn’t really matter at this stage of the season. I strongly believe that if you’re in the top 500k at this point, you have a really good shot of making the top 10k this season.

You need to nail your chips to perfection and need to get the majority of the captaincy calls correctly in your favour. That said, it really isn’t as simple as it sounds.

A couple of opportunities open up in the short term for you. After this Gameweek, Jamie Vardy plays Manchester City and Liverpool. Most managers will not captain Vardy during this period so the captaincy percentages will be split. A good differential captain in such a period will help make ground quickly.

Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Diogo Jota or Raul Jimenez in Gameweek 18 and one of the Spurs/United options in Gameweek 19 look like good bets. If you think you can deal with the heavy effective ownership, you can even give a Liverpool midfielder the armband this week instead of going with Vardy. I don’t think of this as particularly brave because for me Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Vardy are all equally good options. Roll the dice, I say. Listen to your instinct.

When it comes to playing the game and looking for differentials, my advice to you would be to not go for a differential just for the sake of a differential. Go ahead and pick who you genuinely think is the best option for your squad, trust your instinct and ignore the ownership. This is the most fun way to play the game.


Blaine Mcculla: Who are the best defenders to bring in over the festive period?

G-Whizz: I suppose it depends on how much you want to splash out and spend? Crystal Palace’s fixtures look golden for quite a while and I needed a cheap one so went for Martin Kelly. I was also looking more short term so went for Sheffield United and doubled up with Dean Henderson (in place of Nick Pope) in goal for the next three (AVL, bha and WAT).

Clearly my crystal ball is a bit cloudy at the moment and I should have gone with George Baldock and/or Enda Stevens!

Over the next eight Gameweeks, the Season Ticker puts Crystal Palace at the top of the pile overall and third when looking at the fixtures from a defensive point of view.

Aston Villa’s fixtures also look great, and Matt Targett could be a decent asset at such a low price. I can easily see managers who are looking to utilise their Wildcard considering him and/or Tom Heaton as an option.

Manchester City show up in second place but for me, at those prices, I’m sure value and “nailed-ness” could be found in abundance elsewhere and they haven’t looked solid since Aymeric Laporte’s injury. I’d honestly rather pick a Tottenham Hotspur defender over a Manchester City one right now, and their run over the next eight isn’t too bad really considering they only have to face Chelsea and Liverpool over that period of time.


Abinash Parajuli: Who is your must-have Christmas asset?

Kane, Son and Alli continue blistering start to Mourinho's reign

Andy: The one thing I’m asking for this year is a green arrow. To get one of those I suppose I’m going to need a must-have player or two.

I’ve kind of given the game away with my Pulisic answer but I can’t look past the Spurs midfielders right now in Dele Alli and Son Heung-min. Looking at the Fantasy Football Scout Season Ticker, Spurs have the second-best fixtures for attacking returns from now until Gameweek 21.

With a rank of sub-500,000, I’m looking for some differentials to give me some Christmas cheer. While Son may be owned by 19.8% and Alli 11.8% they are still different enough in my book, with Brighton (h), Norwich (a) and Southampton (a) to come over Christmas. They’re potentially even captaincy options.

Sometimes the best way to get a differential is to own two attackers from the same team. Plenty will own one of these two, but not many will own both – not yet at least. It’s cheating a little bit in terms of the question asked, but I think it’s one of my best chances of beating the competition at the moment. They have the form, the fixtures, and are posting some good underlying statistics.

There’s not much to dislike, and while I’d love my must-have player to be Harry Maguire, it may be time to be a bit more realistic.


Eirik Borander: I’m considering Anthony Martial versus Marcus Rashford. What are your thoughts on the Manchester United offensive assets?

Lateriser: I am a Manchester United fan and I feel like we are turning a corner. We are playing some pretty good football right now and I think it is a good time to invest in Manchester United assets.

I currently own Anthony Martial and I am looking at getting Marcus Rashford into my side as he looks like one of the best attackers in the league on current form. I wouldn’t buy into the whole ‘we don’t do well against deep block’ theory too much while picking the players. I had a look at the stats and found that Rashford actually has a higher rate of shots in the box, big chances and big chances created versus the weaker opposition.

If you are picking just one of them at the moment, it is a no-contest in my opinion: Rashford is quite comfortably the better pick at this stage. He is matching Vardy and Mane’s output on current form for much less cash. He passes the eye-test and is statistically outperforming Martial as well. This is simply the best I’ve seen him play. He looks incredibly hungry.

On top of that, he plays 90 minutes more often than not and also has penalties on his side. Another thing I’d like to add here is that Martial is also seemingly more injury-prone. That said, I do like both picks and I’m currently contemplating doubling up on the United attack. But I’m firmly on Team Rashford if you are looking to pick one.


Hutch: Is it time to drop one or both of Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne?

G-Whizz: It depends on your team set-up but for me personally, I had both in a 3-4-3 and decided to drop Sterling for James Maddison for Gameweek 13.

Since that move, Maddison has scored 3, 2, 10, 9 and Sterling 2, 7, 3 and 2 respectively. Don’t get me wrong, there may well be Gameweeks where the reverse will happen, but in the main, I feel with the way Leicester and Manchester City are playing at the moment you’re likely to get more out of ditching one or the other. Clearly, who you bring in to replace Sterling or De Bruyne is also going to be a factor.

De Bruyne had to stay for me at the time and through that same period outscored Sterling by seven points (21 to 14), so at least that has worked out and most of their attacking play goes through him somewhere along the line.

I had bought De Bruyne at £9.5m so the recent price drop meant I can no longer do a straight swap to Son Heung-min but I’m more than willing to still find a way to go through with that move and have no City players at all for the foreseeable future – maybe even right up until Gameweek 33.

    Can Grealish match the likes of Pulisic, Maddison & Martial for less money?

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      I think so over the Xmas period

    2. Ole's at the wheel

      Just transferred him in this week

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year

      martial is inconsistent and pulisic is off the boil so should get more points.

      Maddison should get more points than grealish

    4. MC Hammer
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Maybe not Maddi but could do with the other two

    Pulisic - please do something this weekend

    1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Seriously!
      He's on the chopping block for me next week.

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

        I'm looking at bringing him in now because of his price drop! Stats are brilliant, seems to be Lampard's favourite, and still has decent fixtures.

        Nobody else really standing out at that price range except, arguably, Madison.

        I can understand if people are looking at the Alli/Son double-up but I have Mane, KDB and Alli already who aren't going anywhere, so Mount > Pulisic does appeal.

        1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 2 days ago

          Yeah thats a decent move but id consider Grealish also.

          Personally im looking at Pulisic & Tielemans to Son & Grealish next week.
          Might even keep Pulisic if he does well this week and downgrade TAA to upgrade Tielemans to Son.

          I think Son in this form as when have seen in past seasons yes is the most explosive mid and also a captaincy option for me in the coming weeks.

    Morning all, planning to save FT this gw but early thoughts on what to do next gw as I expect lots of price swings on sat/Sunday. Planning to WC20.

    Heaton — Pope
    Rico Kelly Lundy — Taa Lascelles
    Kdb Alli Pulisic Mane — Cantwell
    Vardy Rashford Ings

    A: Lascelles >> 4.5m def as I will end up 10 players if one of my 3 starting defenders don’t play

    B: Mane >> Sterling (c) and carry FT
    C: A + B combined
    D: Mane >> Son (CHE) + 1.8m to do Ings >> Tammy in gw19

    Happy Thursday

    This bench headache is driving me crazy, think Chilwell (NOR) gets the nod but who else plays out of:

    1. Lundstram (AVL) have Henderson
    2. Soyuncu (NOR)

    ??

    1. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Toughie! Would probably play Lundstram just because of the higher ceiling.

    2. Hakim Ziyech

      1

    3. Bavarian

  8. Le Bluff

    Pulisic dropped last night! Saw he was on -90% or so but didn't think he'd actually drop.

    Very tempted to do Mount > Pulisic now before Mount's likely drop this week too.

        40 pints 8 away games and playing an awful defence. hiding behind the chair will be appropriate.

    Best replacement for Robertson???
    Have TAA,Soyuncu,Lundstram & Kelly

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Aurier?

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Aurier or Willems/Dunk if you need the pennies.

    3. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Cheers both

    4. Fit_to_drop

      Have I missed a strong signal that Roberston wont be playing?

  25. Phil's Stamps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 2 days ago

    I've noticed quite a few people on here saying they never make a transfer the week after a WC.

    In my case (on a WC now), I'm planning VVD to Aurier next week. I don't have any other Liverpool defenders. Surely it's sensible to hold VVD this week as a shield?

    1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Get TAA/Robbo for this week if you can afford.

      1. Arse Craic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 2 days ago

        What if VVD scores another brace?

      2. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 2 days ago

        I have TAA at the mo, but he's got to go for VVD to fit my WC.

    2. theodosios
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Targett/Mings has better fixtures...but Aurier could bring you some attacking returns...tough call

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 2 days ago

        I'm going to have Heaton on my WC, but thanks for the suggestion.

    3. MC Hammer
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Best not to 'plan' a transfer for after WC and set your team for the weeks ahead as things will come up unexpectedly that will need sorting out

    Recording a Q&A video later today on the FFS channel.

    Let me know if you have a question you'd like to see covered

    It can be specific.

    I'll remove this as a hot topic in a few hours!

    1. theodosios
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Hi Andy! Can David or Bernado be alternative to Raheem and Kevin? Less money less stress 🙂

    2. Oi! Shadders!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Andy, can you think of a genuine reason to vote Tory?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Probably not the right video for that 😉

    3. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Time to follow Magnus Carlson's lead and ditch KDB for the Spurs midfield (Alli and Son) double up?

    4. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      I've found myself starting to look at team setups that don't include Trent after this GW.

      For example, dropping him would allow me to get Rashford in, and my other defenders (Lund, Soy, Kelly, Aurier) are fairly competent...

      Should I tell myself off for even considering this?

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 2 days ago

        Im ditching him on my WC for this:
        Heaton
        VVD Soy Lund
        Mane KDB Son Alli
        Vardy Rash Abraham

        Martin Kelly Dendoncker Simpson

        (VVD to Aurier next week)

      2. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 2 days ago

        I'm very open to it, but I can't seem to find a good way to spend the cash without having 8 strong attackers.

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

      villa fixtures are as good as it gets, grealish is interesting, but i cant see him replacing any of my mids of mane, kdb, maddison and son, and i want to play with 3 strikers given there are so many good options. what do you think?

      villa defenders worth a punt? im also gonna be selling TAA to fund rashford in blank gameweek

    6. MC Hammer
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Is now the time for 4 at the back with so many good cheap options?

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

      Is Sterling to Son a good move this GW?

    8. CRO KLOPP
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Is Martial now a good option?
      It's easier for me to fit him in my team than Rashford
      Also what about Utd defense? They could be nice diferentials going forward
      Cheers and GL

    who’d you rather have in your team - KDB or Kane?

    1. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Probably KDB

    2. Ole's at the wheel
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Got rid of KDB and upgraded 3rd striker to Kane

    3. MC Hammer
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Normally, I would trust KDB more than Kane but right now it's complicated

  28. corderz

    Wildcard next week so any 1 week punts with this team? (1ft + 0.7)

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      Nice team, somewhat refreshing to see a Salah captain pick.

    3. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 2 days ago

      KDB to Son?

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 2 days ago

        Definitely not this week
