The best replacements for injured West Ham goalkeeper Fabianski

With West Ham’s first-choice goalkeeper out for ‘a couple of weeks’, Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy looks at the leading candidates to replace him.


The magic of the Double Gameweek: that’s how I justified bringing in Lukasz Fabianski (£4.9m) in Gameweek 22. It couldn’t have gotten much worse than an injury within 13 minutes.

Given I’d spent so many Gameweeks thinking about removing Nick Pope (£4.6m) only to make this decision just makes the whole thing worse.

Reports from West Ham state that Fabianski will only be out of action for a “couple of weeks” but that doesn’t help me when that likely means he misses at least one (if not both) the games in Double Gameweek 24. Brighton (at home) in Gameweek 25 isn’t bad, but given the following fixtures are pretty awful, I don’t think I’ll be looking to hold him.

So once again, I’m back to checking out goalkeeper replacements.

I’m ruling out any goalkeeper that costs more than £5.0m. It’s just not a position I want to spend too much money on, and so far the premium goalkeepers haven’t really backed up their price points with a huge amount of points versus the value options.

Kasper Schmeichel (£5.4m) is top of the points, but only by one, and with three Leicester players already in my team, along with Wilfred Ndidi (£5,0m) missing, I’m not sure how confident I am with upcoming clean sheets.

Let’s take a look at my top candidates.

Alex McCarthy (£4.3m)

A few weeks ago I didn’t think I’d be looking at a Southampton defensive player. The big draw is price but I still want points at the end of the day, and I wasn’t sure I’d be getting them from St Mary’s.

McCarthy is certainly primed for points, even if there hasn’t been a huge amount recently. They’ve conceded just four goals in the last six matches, keeping clean sheets against Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. They also stopped Jamie Vardy (£10m) from registering a single shot in the box in Gameweek 22.

The upcoming matches are also promising with a sea of green fixture difficulty rating matches to come, right up until Gameweek 32 when we may be looking to use the second Wildcard anyway. That being said, the very short-term fixtures aren’t fantastic with Wolves (home), Crystal Palace (away) and Liverpool (away) to come in the next three Gameweeks.

You don’t need me to tell you about Liverpool’s attacking prowess, and Wolves sit joint fifth for shots in the box over the last six matches. That being said, McCarthy sits fifth himself for saves in the last six, so even if clean sheets aren’t forthcoming there is the opportunity for save points.

Dean Henderson (£4.9m)

I’ve underestimated Sheffield United defence for around 22 Gameweeks so far. I haven’t owned John Lundstram (£5.1m) for long enough this season, and I’ve ignored a very profitable double up in defence.

The next two fixtures aren’t great. Henderson goes to the Emirates in Gameweek 23, followed by hosting an in-form Manchester side in Gameweek 24. After that, though, the fixtures look great for a double-up:

In the last six matches, Henderson has only had to make 12 saves, which is far less than McCarthy even though both sides have conceded a similar number of shots in the box.

I don’t think that’s something I’d be too concerned about, though. Given the potential for clean sheets over Gameweek 25 to 29, there are plenty of points to be had.

There are a couple of things to note for longer-term planning, however. If Aston Villa were to beat Leicester in the Carabao Cup replay, it means Sheffield United would have a blank in Gameweek 28. Henderson will also be ineligible to face Manchester United in Gameweek 31 due to loan restrictions.

It’s not a big deal if you have a second playing goalkeeper but it’s worth mentioning.

Mathew Ryan (£4.9m)

Out of everyone on this list, Ryan has the best fixtures from the off – on paper at least.

It may not be as easy as it looks for Brighton to keep clean sheets in those games, especially when those same last four matches see Brighton sit as the sixth-worst team for the number of shots they’re conceding.

Given that Ryan also finds himself quite far down the list of goalkeepers for number of saves made, he probably comes under both McCarthy and Henderson in terms of my favourite options to bring in. That being said, this could be a case of overthinking.

As above, on paper the fixtures look good and sometimes that’s enough. You also have to take into account that Brighton have played Spurs, Chelsea and Everton in the last four matches so a turnaround in fixture difficulty, could also see a turnaround in clean sheet potential.

Ben Foster (£4.9m)

How I'm using the FA Cup weekend to forward plan in FPL 1

It would probably be wrong for me to not mention Foster. Since Nigel Pearson took charge of Watford they have kept four clean sheets in seven games against Crystal Palace, Manchester United, Aston Villa and Bournemouth.

That’s one more clean sheet than they kept in the previous 15 games.

Looking at the defensive stats for the seven fixtures Pearson has been in charge makes for interesting reading.

We could see some regression and with Spurs, Everton, Manchester United and Liverpool to come in the next six matches I’m not feeling confident that the save points will be enough to make up for the lack of clean sheets that I foresee in these matches.

Conclusion

Right now my favoured option is McCarthy. That move saves me at least £0.5m versus the other options mentioned above and the Southampton defensive statistics are looking promising.

If Henderson had better fixtures from the off I would look closer at the double up. McCarthy doesn’t have it easy over the next two either, but they’re more favourable than what Sheffield United will face, and I don’t want to risk two potential blanks by Gameweek 31. I may rue that decision.

I don’t think there’s enough upside in bringing Ryan in and there’s always Lewis Dunk (£4.8m) if I feel I need Brighton defensive coverage. And Foster just doesn’t have the fixtures I’d want to see before bringing in a new player.

There’s plenty of other options that could be considered, including Bernd Leno (£5.0m) with Arsenal showing some defensive improvements. It’s just not enough time for me to consider them a changed team though, I need someone right now.

Martin Dubravka (£5.0m) is another consideration with a fairly good run of fixtures right up until Gameweek 33, but again the short-term fixtures don’t look great and I’m not sure he’s worth the extra outlay.

The four main targets for me are listed above. The problem is that three of them were on my list for replacements last week and Fabianski wasn’t. Look who ended up coming in…

    Somehow got into top 5k without Mane in my team but surely I need to get him for the DGW. Considered Firmino instead (have Salah already) as would be easier and wouldn't need to take a hit to do it.

    Mad to take a hit to get Aguero in and captain this week before shipping him next week, likely to to free up cash for Mane? Would mean another-4 next week.

    1. SAY MY NAME
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      not worth the double hit imo

      1. Park the bus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        yep could go very wrong. KDB captain this week it is.

        1. SAY MY NAME
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          good option - i think double pool defence could cover you reasonably well for the dgw when also considering the balance of your team and no hits

    2. BigDaveSaves
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Wouldn't argue against hits to get Mane and Salah for the double as they have fantastic games afterwards, but I don't think this route is the best way. Could still pay off though if Aguero goes mad again!

    3. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Im at 2k without Mane and have Salah. Why do you want to bring in Mane? If you think Salah is best for TC, you will have to hope Mane blanks (because of EO) even if you bring him in. No fun.

  4. SUPER MOKH
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    A. Jimi Tammy Traore > Firmino Ings Cantwell (-4)
    B. Jimi Rico > Greenwood TAA

    Really appreciate your opinions, been very poor these past few GWs, quite chasing here, eyeing some differential. FYI, I already have Salah and Mane.

  5. PepSala

    Play Traore or Lundstram?

    Those are my only options

    1. Park the bus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Traore

    2. Lemongrab
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Lord. Arsenal without Auba may struggle for goals and even if they do score he's enough of a threat that he may get you a return with a goal or assist.

    3. SAY MY NAME
      • 2 Years

      lundy i reckon

    4. svg53

      Traore just....think Arsenal will probably score.

  6. La Roja

    Repost as can't decide without your help

    Very keen to have 3 Liv players along with Martial, Alli and ideally triple Leicester for dgw 24.
    Will appreciate your advice on the below:

    1) gw24: Rico Grealish Jimenez-> VVD Martial Greenwood for -4
    2) gw24: Grealish Jimenez -> Fleck FIRMINO
    gw25: Alli-> Martial
    gw26: Maddison Firmino-> Salah Ayew for -4 (and rotate Ayew with Fleck)
    3) Rico Jimenez-> VVD Maupay for free
    4) Rico Alli -> GOMEZ Martial for free
    5) Rico Grealish-> ROBBO Hayden

    Currently squad:
    McCarthy
    Taa- Soy- Lundstram
    Mane- Kdb -Maddison- Alli
    Vardy -Ings -Jimenez

    Grealish Rico Kelly

    Abraham+Maddison>Ayew+Mane for GW24?

    I could get Greenwood and use that 0.7 elsewhere but I don't really need it now and Crystal Palace have an incredible run of fixtures

    Every season I have played so far has been derailed by a string of red arrows in January/February. It seems I can't cope with the changes in form ect. that happens over christmas and continues into the new year and now I've had six red arrows in a row again. Oh well.

    What are your strategies for dealing with changes that seem to happen around this time of the year? Do you play aggressively and try to stay ahead of the template or do you assess and buy proven players?

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      An odd pattern you have there - I don't see why this time of the year should be vastly different to any other time (apart from chip season).

      1. Lukakuna
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Agreed. At least Christmas can be explained by rotation and odd results due to lack of rest. I'm even quite happy with my team at the moment so clearly something is wrong 😉

    2. The Rumour Mill
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Same for me! Thought it was just me haha.

      Weirdly I always seem to have strong Christmases, over the 4 gameweeks which happen over the festive period. then after FA cup third round weekend it always falls apart. Last season it was the failure to get on United assets quickly enough, coupled with only owning Sane when City had their DGW25. Season before it was a rogue Lingard captaincy when Kane scored a brace at home to Everton and was widely captained.

      This year I'm trying to mitigate against this by playing safer. going with the captain poll winners, making sure I have 3 Liverpool for the DGW. It hasn't worked yet either! Hopefully though, if there are red arrows, they will be small reds rather than the rank trebling reds which came last season.

      1. Lukakuna
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Haha, great to hear it's not just me! I'm mostly going the safe route with captaincy too, but should probably have been more conservative with transfers.

        My mistakes this festive season has been not having Ings or Grealish and selling TAA.

    3. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I can relate to this a lot!

      Went through the same thing last season, and managed to stop the rut by playing my 2nd wildcard and getting Aguero (TC for his DGW) which massively helped. Also got Kolasinac who I remember helping me out as a differential.

      I think I put it down to being conservative, and holding assets who clearly weren't performing but who I still had faith in (Marcos Alonso rings a bell). I was also quite unlucky with a lot of players getting injured/dropped.

      I always think having a 4-6 week plan helps you to stay ahead of the curve.

  13. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Sarr, Doucoure, Grealish or Trossard in for Maddison (funds Robbo in)?

    Why??

    1. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Hold Maddison this week

    2. Lemongrab

      Sarr looks good and good fixtures too although I'd hold this week

    3. IrishRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I'm tempted with traore and Rico > Mahrez and Holgate for -4. I know -4 isn't needed at moment but I can see I'll be behind on transfers for weeks if I don't with Gazza and then getting in Ings!

    Ive decided to keep Rashford as he is a nice differential, Over 2 weeks is it worth going

    A) Vardy, Maddison, Grealish > Ings, Cantwell, Mane -4

    B) Vardy > Firmino

    C) Maddison, Rico > Sarr, Robertson

    Or anything else?? 1.1ITB

    Guaita Button
    Rico TAA Willems Lundy Kelly
    Salah KDB Maddison Grealish Martial
    Vardy Rashford Greenwood

      Im surrounded by double liverpool defence and im the only one with Rash and Martial, i’d love a 3-2 LFC win as a liverpool fan 🙂

  21. Maddamotha

    What to do here? 2FTs 0.3ITB

    A) Guaita > McCarty/Ryan
    B) Targett > Holgate/Williams
    C) Jimenez > Ings
    D) Smth else

    Guaita
    TAA, Soy, Lundstram
    Salah, KDB, Martial, Maddison
    Vardy, Abraham, Jimenez

    Button, Dendo, Rico, Targett

    1. Jullepuu
      1 month, 5 days ago

      C and maybe b for Stephens or Lascelles

      1. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Cheers. My plan is to use 2 FTs next week to get Robbo in, so would mean downgrading one of Maddison, Martial or Abraham for that, so I cant do B and C now without taking a hit next week. The plan was to downgrade Jimenez, but I cant do that if I go for Ings, which also plays my keeper next round..

    We need a Salah vs Mane article on here. As simple as Mane (safe) vs Salah (bit more of a risk).

        This again

        Salah 22 points in last 3 away games versus fewer.

        Even the great Bobby only has 23 in his last 3 away

  23. Pinky and De Bruyne

    What is looking the better attack set up for DGW and the future.

    A) Martial, Mane, Salah, Traore, KDB
    Vardy, Ings (Greenwood)

    Traore to Grealish after

    Or

    B) Martial, Salah, Traore, KDB (4.3)
    Vardy, Rashford, Bobby

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        would you get rid of Rashford or Vardy for him though?

        1. Cahill
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          no

    @JohnBennettBBC
    Confirmed - the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations will take place in January and February next year. That means it'll be in the middle of the Premier League season. It means Salah, Mane, Aubameyang, Zaha, Ndidi, Mahrez etc could miss up to 6 Premier League games next season.
