Rico benched as Ramsdale misses out through injury

The penultimate match of Gameweek 22 sees two sides battling to avoid relegation meet at the Vitality Stadium.

Watford and Bournemouth are in contrasting shape.

The Cherries were bottom of the form table heading into this clash, based on results over the previous ten Gameweeks.

Since Nigel Pearson took charge at Vicarage Road, however, Watford have lost just once – and that defeat came at runaway leaders Liverpool.

Unsurprisingly, the Hornets boss has kept changes to a minimum and both of his alterations are enforced: the suspended Christian Kabasele (£4.3m) and the injured Kiko Femenia (£4.2m) are replaced by Adrian Mariappa (£4.2m) and Adam Masina (£4.3m).

The team news from the home dressing room will affect more Fantasy managers.

Diego Rico (£4.2m), the only player in either squad who can boast a double-digit ownership in Fantasy Premier League at present, is only among the substitutes, with the fit-again Nathan Ake (£4.8m) taking his place at left-back.

Adam Smith (£4.3m) also makes a sooner-than-expected return from injury and replaces Chris Mepham (£4.3m), who was ruled out for 12 weeks on Friday.

Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale (£4.7m), himself owned by over 6% of FPL bosses, misses out with a minor injury and is replaced by Mark Travers (£4.2m) between the posts.

Callum Wilson (£7.4m), without an FPL attacking return since Gameweek 7 but on the scoresheet last weekend in the FA Cup, is joined up front by Dominic Solanke (£5.2m).

Ben Foster (£4.9m) has three clean sheets in his last six league matches (albeit all at home) and was the most-bought player from either side in the run-up to Gameweek 22.

Just over 70,000 prescient FPL managers shipped out Rico, who had accumulated only 18 points over the previous ten Gameweeks.

Ismaila Sarr (£6.2m), who has four attacking returns in as many Gameweeks, is Watford’s most-owned outfield player within the top 10k, sitting in 2.55% of these elite squads.


Bournemouth XI: Travers, Francis, S. Cook, Ake, A. Smith, H. Wilson, Gosling, Lerma, Fraser, C. Wilson, Solanke.

Watford XI: Foster, Mariappa, Dawson, Cathcart, Masina, Chalobah, Capoue, Sarr, Doucouré, Deulofeu, Deeney.

    What are the chances of Otamendi starting? I know Guardiola has been playing Garcia recently so Im not sure.

      Pebbles there too.

      You know soon, no point in thinking about it.

    Thoughts on these moves guys?

    Tammy Rico > Greenwood TAA for free

    Salah Mane KDB Grealish Traore

    Tammy could haunt me but he's been wasteful vs Burnley and after New his fixtures aren't so nice. With those moves I'll swift to 3-5-2

    I see a lot of people mentioning Williams, which is fine as long as you know what you're actually getting.

    If Shaw is fit then Williams won't just be a rotation risk, he will be regularly rotated.

    If you're happy with a cheap fifth defender who often won't play then he's your guy. Otherwise, look elsewhere, unless Shaw is ever out for an extended spell.

    1. Rash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Shaw has been bobbins, many united fans including myself have wanted Williams in the team for quite some time.

      Shame I benched him.

      1. sully29
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        He has indeed been bobbins. Nonetheless, he will still be played ahead of Williams a lot of the time.

    2. Hotdogs for Tea

      Need a decent playing 4th defender as cover, so you can start Williams in the easier games, and if he doesn't play rely on your 3rd or 4th defender to come in.

    3. Skalla
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      He would be a even better 5th option if Shaw could last a full game and not have Williams subbed on for a few min..

    How would people feel about the premier league allowing 12 players on the bench like they do in serie a? It would let teams throw a few youngsters on the bench and give them minutes if the game is already wrapped up.

    1. sully29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      What would the downside be in theory?

      1. The gospel according to Mar…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Not much as far as I can see. Some grounds might need to expand their bench area.

      2. Ginkapo FPL
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        City actually having 12 good bench players

      3. mynameisq
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Downside is a team like Man city stacking their team with just pure world class players on the bench, like they do now tbh but would be even worse as they could cover for every eventuality that could occur in game

      The only thing I want the EPL to borrow from other European leagues is releasing the 18-man squad list a day before the game. That way we can know if someone isn't in the squad beforehand.

      Very unlucky for the owners and TC's and could get worse if he comes of the bench to concede two late goals and pick up a yellow...

    Sarr is probably the player for me who looks absolute worst on the eye test but somehow gets points. Hes not a good player at all, terrible technique and ball control.

    1. BNMC
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Who cares about technique if he scores goals?

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Hes so bad its a miracle he even hits the goal occasionally

        1. Skloppy Kops
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Just lucky with his goal against ManU. DdG had him in FPL

    2. Skloppy Kops
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Same to me. Him and Pepe failed eye test for me to even consider buying.

    3. Giggs Boson.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Ruined a good chance with a poor first touch there.

      But he turned down a move to Barca in 2017 so he can't that bad technically.

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Just mentally if he turned that down.

        1. Giggs Boson.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          He wouldn't have got games. Did the right thing going to Rennes imo.

          1. Rainer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            He know plays for Watford...

            His development at Barca could have been better, might have been worth the risk.

      2. Skloppy Kops
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Barca's scout has been trash for some years now. Their signing has been out of sort for some time now. So dont impress me if they are linked to bloke like that.

    Traore immediately goes on a run of blanks after the FFS bandwagon gained a head of speed.

    Too expensive to be bench fodder, but can he really hold down a fourth mid spot in our teams ?

      2. mynameisq

    4. Ole Trafford

      I had a downgrade of him to Ings pencilled in to afford Manè but after yesterday decided I can’t bring myself to sell. Going double def instead of attack.

      1. OldBenKenobi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

    5. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I got rid, but it’s purely a money making move to afford Salah for DGW. It might end up biting some of us in the bum, but at least he’s at Anfield next GW (good chance of a blank). Then once the double is done & dusted I plan to have 2FT’s and get him back in

      1. OldBenKenobi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I want him in straight after Liverpool. Burnley are the current wiping boys and they play them at home.

    6. La Roja
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I have him and Martial. I’d rather to keep both but I may have to sell Martial at least to fund Ings this GW and Mane/Robbo for DGW

      1. OldBenKenobi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I’ve martial also but want both for Burnley. Money is tight so could be priced out by next GW. Tough decisions. I’m already set on 3 pool too so that’s not an issue. Need to figure something out

    Foster not getting any saves in that situation with Solanke. If that was Guaita he would be reacting late to the situation, fumbling and somehow ending up with 3 saves out of nothing. I think I have picked the wrong goalie

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      the guy counting saves at OPTA clearly owns Guaita

      I never quite understand these comments, KDB could get a huge score yet you want him to benched ?

      1. _sidney_will

        ML Rival has him (C) & literally owned by everyone

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          I find it hard to believe many would start him, never mind captain him, and at less than 10% ownership he can't literally be owned by everyone.

          You must be in a very strange ML indeed if Dendoncker is a worry:)

                ok, benefits you then for a no show blank by KDB

        Dendoncker's 10 points is way more valuable than KDB's 20, or even 50! (If he is not your captain obviously)

    Is Tanganga less of a risk at 4m than Williams? Obviously not much data around him to work off of but Vertonghen and him are both probably better than Aurier

    1. Skalla
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Not really, no idea yet if he is above Vertonghen now.

    Anyone considering Allison as a third pool spot ? Or is his points ceiling too low ? Thanks

      Waste of money and Pool spot

    2. Skalla
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Nah too low, better of with Gomez or VVD if you lack the funds.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        agree here

    3. GoonerRed
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I dont think theres any point really. Theres way more value in other cheaper goalkeepers.

    Mane Kdb Grealish Cantwell* Martial

    To this:

    Martin Guaita

    How Liverpool got actual money for Dom Solanke is incredible.

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      There should've been an investigation into the Solanke and Ibe transfers.

      1. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Solanke cost more than Danny Ings xD

      2. Celt Abroad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 13 days ago

        Yes - Bournemouth are like a slush fund to fund Liverpool’s transfers market.

        I’ve seen some people do that in football manager - take over a second team to buy their bad players for overinflated sums.

    2. Rash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      The amount they paid for him and ibe is baffling. Gambling on young english players having a big resale value.

  27. Al-Chemy
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Trying to do some initial planning for GW24 so would appreciate any opinions people have:

    Ryan Button
    TAA Sidibe Lunds Soy Kelly
    Salah Alli KDB Martial Hayden
    Tammy Vardy Ings

    A) Sidibe and Alli -> Robbo and Grealish
    B) Alli and Tammy -> Grealish and Firmino
    C) Martial, Alli and Tammy -> Mane, Cantwell/Fleck and DCL (-4)

    Currently leaning towards A or B but Firmino has screwed me in the past so unsure on him!

  28. Would Ed Woodward

    Eurgh, not sure I like my GW resting on a Watford player doing something.

      How are they doing? Cup opponent has Sarr.

      1. Would Ed Woodward

        Not sure, I am watching but realised I've zoned out for entirety of game so far.

    Can do Jimenez Martial to Ings Son (exact cash) if I forego getting my third Liverpool player for the DGW (Gomez and cash in for Kelly/Rico)...
