Making the most of Gameweek 26’s FPL limbo

Limbo: “an uncertain period of awaiting a decision or resolution; an intermediate state or condition”.

It truly does feel like the FPL community has slipped into oblivion this week. The elongated nature of Gameweek 26 because of a first-ever Winter break has been made worse by the postponement of Manchester City vs West Ham due to storm Ciara.

The reigning Champions already have a congested schedule coming up and will now face the Hammers at a later point this Gameweek.

    after blank gameweek who is better to have?

    Graelish
    or
    Pukki
    ?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Greal

    2. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Fixtures wise Pukki would be better but I guess Grealish is more likely to be involved

    3. Root
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Pukki

  2. Jafooli

    Is there any chance the Sheffield United vs Bournemouth game from this GW could still be cancelled?

    Don’t want Rico’s 1pt stinking up my team.

      Maybe they can get it replayed - Bour are complaining that the ref was rude to them.

        It's not about being a snowflake though...
        How are you meant to respect the ref of believe he's impartial when he's mocking your club?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          They don't respect the refs though anyway. I am not saying that is the fault of the Bournemouth players in particular, that is "normal" and has been for many years now.

          Surely Gosling, Eddie Howe etc. should be the ones apologising to the Bournemouth fans for their crapness, not the ref apologising for bringing it up.

            I imagine the conversation was no more than:

            "You're shite ref"

            "No, you're shite, look at the league table"

            I very much doubt the ref just started taking the piss for no reason. Bournemouth should be concentrating more on their pathetic recent performances.

        Tbf John Moss is a scumb@g, so no surprise there....

          I'll see your Jon Moss and raise you a Bobby Madley

          Would be interested to hear what evidence you have to back this up.

        Lol@ Dan Gosling. This kind of childish woe is me-attitude is exactly why they will go down.

      Only if the whole season is cancelled. Coronavirus ?

  3. Bleh
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Lund, Graelish, DCL > Gomez, Son, Jimenez over the next 3 weeks, yay or nay?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Fudge yeah

    2. Shatner's Bassoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Boly instead of Gomez imo. Save that third LFC slot for a bigger hitter.

      1. Bleh
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Thanks, which heavy hitter do you suggest? Do I sacrifice a defensive double up almost guaranteeing CS points for Mane instead (have Salah)?

        1. fgdu
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          double def TAA + robbo/vvd

          1. Bleh
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Yep ideally want VVD but would mean more sacrifices elsewhere, which I really can't afford to do unless I'm on a wildcard!

    3. Bury94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Definitely

    Magnus C gonna get Lundstram off the bench due to Webster no-show. The guy sees through a kaleidoscope.

            You are looking at the wrong Carlsen lol

              There are multiple? No wonder he is so good!

                Ha, I can't tell if it's actually a lot of people's names or whether folks are just imitating him

                      Doubt the proper Magnus would include ‘dong’ in his name 😉

    4. Nailed Jesus

      Am I right in assuming that reddit dude is gonna leak SHU team every week, therefore keep Lund and start or bench depending on the line-up?

      1. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        The side was unchanged since last game? I'd start him anyway

      2. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        If you benched him because of the lineup this week you didn't get his 7 points. I'm starting him regardless. 20-30 mins of Lundstram is better than 90 mins of Rico.

        1. clodhopper
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Always start him my view

          1. GREEN IS GOOD
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            1 point incoming

    5. OldBenKenobi
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Looks like Lascelles could rise in price tonight.

      EARLY TRANSFER INCOMING 🙁

      1. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Surely you can still afford him for 4.3?

      2. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Might get Taylor instead then

      3. The Mantis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        -4 happening right now due to this

      4. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Go for Fernandes instead and save it for later

      5. OldBenKenobi
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Who would you rather have?

        A) Martial
        B) Fernandes
        C) Someone else 8.0 or less (but not Grealish)

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          If punting on Utd I'd try try Bruno - probably on PKs, FKs etc.

        2. Woy_is_back

      6. Zim0

        What's more plausible? Zombies or the "attack on titan" titans?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          No contest, zombies; especially if you include original Haiti style zombies or "28 Days Later" style "infected" as zombies.

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Okay what about Godzilla vs the titans?

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 20 days ago

              Likelihood or who would win? Either way, I'd put my money on Godzilla.

        2. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Hopefully Attack on titans, better chance of surviving within walls.

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Hmm yes I guess they don't spread like an infection

            1. Holmes
              • 6 Years
              7 months, 20 days ago

              They can spread if spinal fluid is injected or consumed. Abnormal titans.

            2. Holmes
              • 6 Years
              7 months, 20 days ago

              Zombies are obviously more realistic.

          They play on Sunday right so should be fine.

            Sounds waaaaaay too cheap @ €45m. Hell a bog standard premier league pro can make 20-30m these days and this guy is a proven CL performer.

          I don’t suppose there’s going to be another late season FFS cup once this one’s done this week by any chance?

          A couple of options here. Should I back Everton through their tough games?
          1. Holgate + Lundstram -> Boly + Taylor.
          2. Lundstram + Maupay -> Taylor + DCL.
          3. Other moves.

          Hendo.
          TAA, Stephens, Williams.
          Grealish, KDB, Mane, Salah.
          Maupay, Ings, Aubameyang.
          Stek, Lundstram, Dendoncker, Holgate.
          2ft. 0.1m ITB. WC, BB, FH remaining chips.

          Chinese Grand Prix is the latest sporting event to fall victim to the coronavirus, hopefully it doesn't get bad enough over here for our sporting events to be cancelled.

          The Review: GW 26 Part 1

          Greetings! With GW 26 spread over 2 weeks of football, I have decided to split this GW’s review into 2 halves. In this half, I talk about the teams that have already played:

          (Raw data taken from FFScout and FFH with permission)

          1) Ever since Carlo Ancelotti has taken over, Calvert Lewin is top for shots inside the box, big chances, shots on target and xG for all Premier League players. His owners richly deserved the 11 point haul against Crystal Palace, considering that his numbers have been suggesting that a big score was a long time coming. He has been averaging over one big chance per game and over three shots inside the box per game ever since the Italian has taken over – the fact that he also has a better shots inside the box per game ratio than Agüero/Salah over the same period is actually frightening and just further emphasizes the value he is representing.

          2) The fact that Palace have picked up only 9 points from a possible 33 from GW 16 onwards coincides with a complete collapse in their attacking and defensive numbers – particularly away from home. Palace have the worst xGc and are the only team to concede over ≈10 shots inside the box per game away from home over the same period. They have only conceded 8 goals over these 6 games however, which has camouflaged their underlying numbers. Further, Palace over the same run are the only team to average less than one big chance created per game for goal threat hence the takeaway from this for FPL managers is that Palace in this slump is a good team to target for clean sheets and goals – especially when they play away from home.

          3) A spell of 7 points over the past 4 GW’s caps off what has been a very frustrating run for Matt Ryan’s owners. However, the raw data suggests that they have been unlucky, as backed up by the statistical model xG which ranks Brighton top for underperformance over the past 4 GW’s – the Seagulls have conceded 8 goals in comparison to a xGc of ≈3.1 over the same period. Granted the fixtures were favorable, but the improvement in numbers has been apparent: Brighton have conceded ≈6.5 shots inside the box per game and ≈1.5 big chances per game over the past 4 GW’s as compared to ≈8.78 shots inside the box per game and ≈2.18 big chances per game over the rest of the season.

          4) A points per game average of over ≈5 for Abdoulaye Doucoure ever since Nigel Pearson has taken over the helm isn’t quite reflective of his actual goal threat and assist potential. Doucoure averages a shade over a shot inside the box, ≈0.2 big chances per game and ≈0.2 big chances created per game over the same run yet has accumulated points at a fast rate ala Yaya Toure. 13 midfielders have accumulated more shots inside the box and 16 have recorded more big chances over the same run. Famous last words, but I don’t think the rate at which Doucoure has been scoring points is sustainable.

          If you’re looking to follow more of my content, you can follow me @bigmanbakar on Twitter/Instagram. Computations and analysis my own. Lastly, I’d like to thank everyone for taking the time out to read patiently, good luck for the remainder of GW 26 – may your arrows be green!

              One factor that’s not considered in those stats is that Brighton conceded early in those games and went behind. It’s a natural tendency for teams that are ahead to attack less so Brighton would have conceded a higher number of chances and would have a higher xGc if they hadn’t already conceded early on.

              Don't think the fixtures are actually that bad anyway. Arsenal, United and Chelsea really aren't that good.

            Was all set on DCL to Jimenez this week but his haul and these numbers are making me question it.

            1. Jullepuu
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 20 days ago

              Same here but Jimenez isn't in bad form either so I'm probably still doing it

                Same. Jimmy at home to Norwich looks too juicy to ignore.

                  i'm on a WC, dont ask! so looking at my front line, those 3 feel optimal

              Exactly the same mate. Have almost certainly decided to drop Vardy to Jimi now and have a value front line of Jimi, Ings, DCL and have cash to spend in the mids

            Ah TFF... I was hoping to keep DCL under the radar!

            I'm very happy to keep him for ars MUN. So far, he's got me 8,5,2,11. Those aren't even that bad fixtures. che LIV is rough though and I'll probably sell if he blanks both. But I have other issues to sort out.

            I'm very glad I didn't WC. Team is coming together and if Mane is back and fit, that's a nice differential on the top 100K spots.

            1. LE CHARO
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 20 days ago

              Yeah, didn't think DCL and Doucouré would do so welI and I didn't own a lot of highly owned players with good fixtures this GW, so I wildcarded and took them both out.

              I don't regret it and it's way too early to judge that move, but I feel like I might have been a bit too hasty and could have waited at least one more GW.

            3) That's not bad luck then, it means Ryan should've saved all those shots!

            I'm on -3 and dropped 90,000 places. The most exciting part of the game week has been the cancellation of a match that got rearranged.

          Actually considering downgrading Auba to DCL and going for a mid range front line.

          Jiminez, Ings and DCL. Beef up that midfield.

          1. dbeck
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            i'm look at that also, whats the beefy mid looking like?

            1. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 20 days ago

              Currently on Salah, KDB, Richarlison, Grealish and Hayden. Perhaps Grealish to Son.

          2. faux_C
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            I'm already on this front 3 with Salah, Mane, KDB, Grealish and Snodgrass in midfield.

          3. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Exactly my planned front line (see below) although it is Vardy I am planning on dropping for Jimi - already have DCL and Ings 🙂

            • 2 Years

            I'm actually considering the opposite and going Aguero, Vardy, Jiminez and downgrading midfield (except Salah) 😀

        13. Park the bus
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          potential Aurier replacement:

          Reece James: + good assist potential
          - more expensive and rotation risk

          Lascelles: + cheap to free up funds and nailed
          - Newcastle

          Max budget is 5.2... Bertrand being spoken of favourably but have McCarthy. other options?

          1. dbeck
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Boly or Lascelles probs, can i ask why you are off loading Aurier, doesnt seem like a priority transfer

          2. avfc82

            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Yeah I like James and Lascelles too. One of the Leicester defenders (Evans, Soyuncu) could also become an option from GW28.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            I think folks are sleeping on Fernández from Newcastle. Check his heat map against that of Lascelles in the members area to see what I mean.

          4. Citizenkane91
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Don't think he's a rotation risk at all.
            May get him in 28, Doherty for 27. Would mean and a back 4 of TAA Robertson Doherty Reece in 29 and 31.

        14. Kaiser123
          • 1 Year

          Thats the question Wolves or Leic players. With Leic having no Euro football...I wonder?

          1. KDB4PREZ
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Leic will regain form imo wolves will continue in same fashion

          2. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            If not BB in 31 will need to load up on Wolves, but Leicester offer more if they are firing Vardy and maybe Barnes anyway

        15. Don Kloppeone

          Afternoon all - work has annoyingly been keeping me off FFS 😉

          Given DCLs prolific stats and performance I am (along with others) considering holding onto him. What do you think of my updated plan over the next 2 GWs?

          GW27: Vardy > Jimi (FT) - playing the fixtures and form imo
          GW28: Martial, Grealish > Son, Barnes (-4)

          This will give me this team for BGW28 with plenty of cash itb for future upgrades/ formation changes:

          £3.5itb
          McCarthy, (McGovern)
          TAA, VVD, Holgate, (Stevens), (Williams)
          Salah, (KDB), Son, Barnes, Cantwell
          Jimi, Ings, DCL

          Thoughts?

          Cheers!

              7 months, 20 days ago

              Neither was I until I considered the form/ eye test and then compared the stats of DCL, Jimi and Vardy over the last 6 GWs. The results are overwhelmingly conclusive. Vardy is easily expendable until he regains form imo. Barnes is a decent cover for the fixtures.

              If for some reason Vardy explodes this weekend I can switch back to the original plan of keeping Vardy and dropping DCL but atm doesn’t appeal.

          2. Camzy

            7 months, 20 days ago

            Why not just keep all 3?

            Transfers not made gives you room to improve elsewhere. I don't think Jimenez is an upgrade over Vardy especially with Vardy's fixture swing beginning GW28.

            1. Don Kloppeone
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 20 days ago

              I get where you’re coming from. But for at least the last 6 matches the combination of eye test and stats for Vardy have been exceedingly poor. Compare them to both Jimi and DCL and it becomes clear (until his form returns) which of the 3 to have.

              Martial is really just pants. Remains to be seen if he will uptick with Bruno or Ighalo there but not sure I’d like to keep him on that premise.

              If I kept those 3 where would you be looking to upgrade then? Currently 3.3itb.

              1. Camzy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years

                True. I'd prefer Jimenez too I think. But there are more important transfers to make imo especially with the fixture turn and the return of Ndidi.

                Martial and Grealish should find new homes with poor fixtures/form. Just start moving on those and hold onto Vardy. Part of FPL as well is deciding which issues are most pressing. And for me the midfield is the priority to fix.

                  I don’t disagree in theory but I like playing the form/ stats game and therefore I would say Vardy and Martial would be top of my list for moving on atm. I have held Martial for long enough so I feel I should give him the WAT match as his swan song.

                  I’d like a WOL asset for GW27 (and beyond) and if I were to choose between Jimi and Traoré it surely has to be Jimi.

                  It’s a tough one. Hoping performances this weekend (and postponed MCI game) help give me more of a steer.

                  Also happy I still have WC in my pocket!

            Looks like a plan
            Jimi and Barnes look good - not sure about Son though

              With the funds available Son could be Martial if I dropped VVD to anyone else

                Son, might be good and I am just being stubborn - went from 3 Spurs to zero over about 3 weeks late last year.

                Jimi move looks decent and just see what happens.

          7 months, 20 days ago

          Who should I let go ahead of GW 28?

          A) Grealish
          B) Egan
          C) Aguero
          D) KdB

          Currently leaning towards A even though I'd lose a lot of TV. He's fixtures are very tough GW 20 and beyond and he doesn't perform that well vs the top clubs.

          1. Bavarian

            How does my plan look for BGW28

            Henderson McCarthy
            TAA VVD Stevens Lascelles Taylor
            Salah KDB Richarlison Grealish Hayden
            Auba Jimenez Ings

            Got 2FTs but will probably burn it as I see nothing pressing at all. Maybe Steven's to Egan just to save some cash..

            GW27 > Grealish and Auba to Son and DCL

            PRICE CHANGES! In the middle of a gameweek......Agggggggggggggh (I know, long gameweek etc etc!)
            0.1 shy of Maupay & Grealish -> Ings & Traore.
            12.7 to spend on a mid & striker combo, any suggestions?

              Wood/Pukki are your man

                • 10 Years
                7 months, 20 days ago

                Pukki....really?!
                I'm going to need some convincing!

                1. Holmes
                  • 6 Years
                  7 months, 20 days ago

                  Sorry, not really good at convincing 😀

                  Will give a try:

                  Season end punt you can say. Fighting for survival (or new team), lone striker, probably no blank, should be fine till WC or next DGW atleast.

                  LEI, SOU, EVE, BHA, WHM, BUR at home till season end. Away games are also ok

                  1. BananaMan
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years
                    7 months, 20 days ago

                    Some good points well made.
                    Would be praying for a Pukki Party revival!

              Already own DLC.
              I was considering benching Maupay and doing DLC & Grealish -> Ings & Traore?!
              Feels like a rubbish alternative though!

              1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                • 3 Years
                7 months, 20 days ago

                Maybe Woods as recommended by Holmes. Norwich fixtures do perk up a bit from GW30, but they might be all but gone by then.

                1. BananaMan
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  7 months, 20 days ago

                  I can afford Maupay to Woods straight swap.
                  No need to sacrifice Grealish.
                  This could be the answer.

                  1. BananaMan

                    7 months, 20 days ago

                    This does mean I'd be Ings'less moving forward!

                    DCL - Vardy - Woods

                      Moutinho is a decent alternative to Traore

              Cheap for what he might offer and exactly what MUFC could have done with. Guessing Ed and his mates are too busy patting themselves on the back over Ighalo to have started worrying about next season yet.

              Not sure about that, but a good young squad is being built up there - will be very interesting in the coming years if Man U, Arsenal and Spurs get their act together too.

            Imagine telling your friends about FPL and all the fun and joy it gives and they start playing for the first time this year. And now they meet with gameweek 26. This has to be worse than an international break, right?!

                I've complained to my friends, who I've played with for years. That this FPL season is the least fun, imo. So much randomness happening and stuff like this GW, just meh.

              February fullstop seems to have stalled completely

              January went by in what seemed like the blink of an eye, yet here we are what feels like 6 months later and it's still only the second week of Feb

              Definitely some sort of glitch in the matrix's temporal parameter settings
