What impact will Rose’s arrival at Newcastle have on FPL?

The arrival of Danny Rose (£5.3m) at Newcastle United has added a new dimension to the options at St. James’ Park.

The former Spurs left-back joins Steve Bruce’s squad with plenty of Premier League and European experience, which bodes well for the Magpies.

However, it is unclear at this point whether or not Rose will have any impact on the Fantasy Premier League scene.

That’s what we hope to achieve by assessing what he achieved at Spurs in the first half of the campaign and taking an early look at Rose’s initial contributions to Newcastle.

        Thanks B is for a hit -4

          Your projected transfers should gain back that -4 over the next 5 or 6 weeks. I'd go for it. My team is not dissimilar and I'm certainly not WC'ing this week.

    2. Young Lingard
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Imma say option B
        I’ve wildcarded already and I feel there’s so many twists to happen those patient enough to have it as an option will benefit
        Also you can field good teams for next few weeks already

        1. Bucket Man

          Thanks even for a -4

          1. Little Red Lacazette
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Yes. 2 non players for 2 with a good fixture.

      Chances Kun, KDB and Mahrez play 0 minute so I can get Williams' 5 pointer off the bench?

      1. reo19uk
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        surely if they play each of them will get more than 5 points so really you want them all to play!

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Youre onto something mate. But those 5 points look tasty!

          1. reo19uk
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            3 CIty players in an easy game or 5 points! Seems an easy choice to me there!

    4. FOO FIGHTER
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Why does Bruno Fernandes feel like a trap i.e. all UTD's other assets.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          This time it'll be different...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Because he hasnt shown any promise to actually score goals, which means there are better midfield picks (those who score goals themselves)

          Does feel like he's being built up into something he's probably not (yet).

          I can't believe I just said that...

          I think he's been good as a player for United in 2 matches, but in terms of FPL not so sure just yet. Most set pieces is nice (pens remains to be seen), and the combo with Maguire could happen a few more times.

          But I'd like to see him get forward more and into the box.

          Just not sure how much I'd trust the other players around him at the moment

          1. Giggs Boson.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Agreed. Excellent player, but the other attacking players around him are going to severely stunt his output. Rashford and Pogba are huge losses in that attack. Who else is at Premier League standard? James, Andreas, Lingard aren't good enough for the first team, and Martial is inconsistent. Greenwood has potential but isn't playing. Without Rashford and Pogba, I can't see where the quality is to support him.

        4. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Maybe because they have scored 2 goals in last 4 games

                Worst home record vs second worst away record, hope it's a goalfest.

      • Vpan

        Is Soy -> Boly worth a transfer?

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          I'd keep soy fixtures are nice .

        2. Tony Martial

          no do it in GW 31

        3. Little Red Lacazette
          • 3 Years

          Nope. No other players you want to get rid of?

      • Little Red Lacazette
        • 3 Years

        Had Rose on my team when Eriksen was a must have Spurs asset back in the day.

          Do have a bit of a soft spot for Danny Rose but that kind of cash for a Newcastle defender is hard to take!

      • lastmanback
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        Rookie error alert. Took a 4 pt hit to get in Son (pre injury) and Boly, now torn whether I turn it into an 8pt hit to switch Son to Richarlson or play Wildcard.

        Wildcard would involve about 5 further transfers, but only in positions like backup keeper, removing kelly as last defender, replacing midfield bench fodder etc.

        Generally happy with team other than the bench fodder so don't feel I need a WC, but an 8pt hit for Richarlson and Boly?

        1. jimski
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Wildcard worth more than an extra -4. Either stick with Son for a week, or take another hit.

        2. andy85wsm

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          A wildcard off the back of an unfortunate mistake doesn't sound like the right move to me

          Thanks folks. Always get caught once a year by an early transfer injury. Need to learn patience in my transfers!

          During this extremely long gw with also CL and Europa-league it's definitely best to wait till fri-sat before any transfers, but I'm rolling this gw, have 4 players that don't play gw 28 so want 2 FT in gw 28

          1. lastmanback
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            Had exact funds and figures Son would rise by the weekend

          1: who' on your bench at the mo?
          2: what's your plan for BGWs & DGWs? might need to keep WC?

          1. lastmanback
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            Current bench is Stephens, Cantwell, and Kelly. Would like to keep WC for a DGW, should be fine for upcoming blank and will likely play FH for any other big blanks or doubles.

      • Your Man With The Hair
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 16 days ago

        I'm in a mini-league cash cup this week, so whilst i'm trying to keep an eye on the BGW, I also need to prioritise this coming GW.

        With 2 FTs i can do
        DCL & Aguero -> Ings & Auba

        Current team
        Foster
        TAA Lund Stephens
        KDB Salah Grealish Martial
        Aguero DCL Firmino
        ----------------------
        Button, Rico, Williams, Hoyden

        Any pearls of wisdom?

          • 5 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Not sold on Auba personally, especially if he stays on that wing
          I would be tempted to keep DCL and have a decent sub

          Aguero > ings?
          Martial > Mane?

          1. Your Man With The Hair
            • 9 Years
            4 months, 16 days ago

            I never really understand the hesitancy around Auba. His goal scoring record is fantastic.
            DCLs fixtures have we wanting him out asap.
            Maxed out on Pool already.

      • TimetoplaytheKane

        Why was Mane removed at HT ,was he removed as a precaution to his yellow card or he got injured ? Any concrete news?

          Not an injury apparently, just the pre-caution you mentioned it seems

      • ‘Tis the Season
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 16 days ago

        My guess is KUN, Mahrez and KDB are benched for CL. City HAVE to win CL now with the ban (pending appeal). Bsilva, Gundagun and Jesus start.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 2 Years

          They can't not play for almost 3 weeks though either.

            • 1 Year
            4 months, 16 days ago

            To avoid injury, very likely. They train during the week mate, it isn’t Sunday league

            This.
            If none them start vs WH, Leicester will be there first game in 3 weeks.

            With RM on the horizon cant see them all benched.

              Not all no. I expect them all to start tonight, then have limited mins at Leicester (60 or 30)

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          So you mean they will get benched vs Leicester? i agree, some of them at least.

          But they are starting tonight

          Is that for a hit?

          I've looked at similar. Son+Firmino to Mane+£8m forward (maybe Tammy if fit)

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 16 days ago

          Im prob doing VVD, Grealish (or KDB) and Aguero to Boly (or Doherty if KDB out instead of Grealish), Mané and Jimenez.

            • 10 Years

            Why not just kdb and aguero to mane and jiminez ?

            Vvd > Doherty

            Or do you need a Liverpool spot ?

        With champs league slightly at risk now for Liverpool I think they may take the Chelsea cup game more seriously. As a consequence can see Watford and especially Bournemouth games with rotation risk ....

                The positive is if they do get knocked out they will go all out in league for invincible

                I expect the Chelsea game to be the game when he rests who he wants to rest before Atleti 2nd leg

                  Surely Bournemouth game? That’s as easy as it gets... and is the game right before second leg

          Unfortunately I think they'll smash Atletico at Anfield.

              The can do. They can also just win 2-1, which would not suffice.

              Lol. Liverpool fan here and think we wont smash them.

              Did you know that Atletico was defeated in CL knockout stages only from Cristiano Ronaldo teams?

              And Liverpool dont have player like that tbf

          @Andy , as I could not respond on the thread. Yeah off topic from FPL but there are many convos on the site that are not FPL related yeah. Easier to let the conversation grow and die than to intervene imo

          1. Son to Mane
          2. Or go double Pool defence which will allow me to do DCL to Jimi also but the problem in this case is who to replace son with? currently have Salah, KDB, Grealish and dendo and son*.
