All eyes on Ings as Southampton host poor West Ham defence

The Fantasy Premier League community turns to Danny Ings (£6.4m) as Southampton host West Ham United in the final game of Saturday afternoon.

The centre-forward has scored in each of his last five matches and has amassed 12.4% ownership for Gameweek 17.

That is considerably more than any other player at St. Mary’s for the 17:30 game.

After him, the most popular asset in the match is West Ham defender Winston Reid (£3.9m) who sits in 4.5% of teams, with those managers simply looking to save money more than anything else.

The New Zealand international is absent from the matchday squad once again and is yet to register any Premier League minutes this season.

There may be some eyes on James Ward-Prowse (£5.9m) for this fixture after he registered three attacking returns in his last five outings.

His set-piece delivery could prove important today considering West Ham’s problems defending dead-ball situations this season, which earned him a place in the Gameweek 17 Scout Picks.

Southampton XI: McCarthy; Bertrand, Bednarek, J Stephens, Cédric; Redmond, Ward-Prowse, Højbjerg, Djenepo; Ings, S Long.

West Ham United XI: Martin; Cresswell, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Fredericks; Noble, Rice; Antonio, Fornals, Snodgrass; Haller.

    Would you rather have De Bruyne or Salah in next 5 GW ?

    1. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Salah after blank

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Salah is back ... you can't ignore

      1. Niho992
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I have Salah already but thinking to rid of him for KdB

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Jesus needs to get the ball into the need from KDB assists ... that bothers me

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year

    Come on Danny, destroy all the non-believers tonight my beautiful son. Especially the Tammy keepers

  4. HurriKane
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    FPL can be cruel at times

    You Start an inform Kelly who had 3 cs in last 3 gws over Lundy who was without a cleanie in 5

    Rookie mistake. lesson learnt never bench Lundy

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      It was silly. Lundstram is a mid and Kelly's team have been hit by a ton of injuries.

      1. TheSteel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Agreed

      2. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Yh i guess so. Clearly wasn't thinking straight.

        Was afraid of another kelly cs stranded on the bench

    2. Lindelol
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      As if you didn't know what was at stake. You played safe

    2. Give Me the Mane

      what is your objective?

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Diplomatic, it's true 😉

        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

    4. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      About the same as me, with Alli, Son and Rashford left. Think it’s ok, but dissapointed.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 12 days ago

        41 same three left to play.

        1. HashAttack
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

      2. fantasyfog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

          • 2 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I know. Will be nice to see green arrows for a change 🙂

  6. Atimis
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Thoughts on these moves for blank GW18?

    TAA Haydent to Targett/Kelly Grealish

    Targett vs Kelly as will get also Guaita after GW19?

    1. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Go for it

  7. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Rico to Kelly for free?

    Guess Mane to Salah has to wait until next week because of the blank.

    1. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      No brainer

    2. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Kneejerk

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Keep Rico. His fixtures are fantastic for a while.

    4. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Why do you want to take Rico out?

    5. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Waste of transfer

    6. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Rico nailed

      Kelly not nailed when Ward fit in a couple of weeks

  8. Bossworld
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Absolutely torn on how to use 2FT this week, will have to see how the United match pans out but for now I'll be more than happy to jettison Pulisic and Abraham

    1. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Id do Pulisic to Grealish

      Grealush pen miss will slightly derail the wagon. Could set off once again next gw

      1. FPL Pillars
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Grealish is hardly a prolific scorer. Just look at his record championship level.

  9. rokonto
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Yes or nooooooo
    Out alex-arnold, de bruyne, tammy
    In kelly, alli, kane

    1. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      No

  10. BNMC
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Fix this mess with 1 FT and 0.6 ITB

    Ryan Guaita
    Robbo Lundy Soy Rico Mings
    Mane KDB Son Grealish Cantwell
    Vardy Tammy Mousset

    A. Robbo + Mousset -> Someone else + Jimenez (-4)
    B. Robbo + Tammy -> Someone else + Rashford (-4)
    C. Deal with Mings's injury
    D. Free hit

    Other defenders I'm looking at: Willems, Schar, Dunk, Targett, maybe even Doherty

  11. Team Cruel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Ings through on goal within 10 seconds but denied by ref

  12. KAPTAIN KUN
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    COME ON MARTIN, DO ME PROUD AGAIN

  13. Patio Kev
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Come on West Ham !!! Win 9-0 at St Mary’s to give us all a happy Xmas.

  14. Give Me the Mane
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Chelsea are losing to teams who've been having a very poor run of form and then they suddenly step up their game. West Ham, Everton and now B'mouth

  15. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Martial possibly rising tonight is annoying, like, why?!

  16. xtina
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    TC Vardy Fail

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Monster fail.

      WAT game was the clue to avoid it.

    2. KAPTAIN KUN
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      At least he didn't blank

      1. xtina
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        True - could have been even worse 🙂

    3. HashAttack
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Wilson, Richarlison and now Vardy ... all failures at home to Norwich .. seems to be a pattern emerging

  17. Monkey Hanger
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    The Lord will provide.

  18. Do I Not Like Orange
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Worth a hit to bring in Rico or Targett for Reid this GW?

    Alternative would be playing Dendoncker & going in without a bench.

  19. KAPTAIN KUN
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Just turned up to the Vardy party and nobody is here?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      A Krul person ended it.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      DJ was abducted by Salah

    3. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Party's at Pukki's.

    4. Lucackadoodledoo
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I went to the Pukki party. Party poppers and all sorts of things happening

    5. RAFA THE GAFFA

      We’re all going back to Teemu’s

  20. Syd.
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    How did Chelsea play today?

    Certainly a worry they have now lost home games to both West Ham & Bournemouth

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Poo.

      Don’t recall them having one good chance. BOU should have been more comfortable but Josh King can’t finish.

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Similar to Pool/Watford.

        1. Syd.
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Watford’s finishing was hilarious

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Awful. We're in a bad run of form. It won't last forever, but with all the teams now chasing getting closer - there's even more pressure.

    3. Railwayman
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Really bad and looked tired too. Not having their players right now doesn't look bad tbh.

  21. chaser123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Planning to wildcard in GW19 and have 2 free transfers this week.

    What are your thoughts on:
    VVD > Doherty
    Dendoncker > Grealish

    1. chaser123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Actually perhaps I get rid of Mount rather than Dendoncker before he goes down in price again!?

  22. Eat my goal!

      🙂

  23. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Mousset has been the worst buy of the season. What a fraud. Cant wait to do Mane + Mousset -> KDB + Rashford

  24. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    FPL Cup:

    Me:
    - 42 points
    - Vardy (C)
    - Remaining: Alli, KDB, Ryan

    Opponent:
    - 32 points
    - Salah (C)
    - Remaining: Pickford, Digne, Doherty, Walker, Anderson*, Zaha, Milivojevic, Rashford, Jimenez

    See ya 😆

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Another GW where I considering captaining Ings and didn't... but at least the 3 I did end up doubling is only a wee bit behind the 5 everyone else got from VARdy. He'll probably get the armband away to Villa next weekend... I don't fancy wor Jamie away to Citeh.

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      City probably ideal for Vardy. Play a high-line which means long-ball football is effective for Leicester.

      1. CroatianHammer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        There is this... I've downgraded my backline for GW18 (time to divest my Scouser contingent) and will consider bringing Sterling back in after that. All things considered GW17 is going well.

  27. Woy_is_back
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Pereira & Pulisic to Aurier & Alli?

  28. Nuno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Who to bring in?
    A. KDB (no City)
    B. Son (triple up with Alli & Gazzaniga)

  29. Slitherene
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Willing to take a hit for GW18
    Wildcarding after GW19

    Pope
    Baldock Kelly (1)
    Zaha KdB (2)(3)
    Rashford Vardy Ings

    Have 25.1 to spend.

    (1) Maguire, Lundstram, O'Connel, Cahill
    (2)(3) Sterling, Son, Alli, Martial, Grealish

    Which 3 players from the pool, for the next 2?

  30. Super Saints
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Come on you Saint's!

    Who to bring in to fund Jimenez to Rashford?

    A. Willems
    B. Rico

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Rico- Bournemouth some good fixtures ahead to end February
