    Trying to get my head around what's happening. Crellin's spreadsheet isn't helping me.

    GW 28 blanks City vs Arsenal and Villa vs SHU move to .... possibly 29, if not?

    Sticking with Arsenal, if they bear Portsmouth in the cup they go to the QF of the Fa Cup (GW31) meaning Southampton vs Arsenal will be a blank. So Arsenal have two games need to be rearranged. Then if they won their quarter final their semi-final will be GW34, Arsenal vs Leicester also off - 3 games for two slots in 34 and 37, correct?

    Who is most likely to have a DGW in 34? I must be getting old...

      Teams who are knocked out in the 6th round of the FA Cup, so blank in GW31, but not GW34.

    If there's a double gameweek is there anyone other than auba and Debruyne are worth having? Have salah and mane too so can't go for aguero. Could possibly get pepe

    Cheeky RP as lost on last page

    I managed to fall in the trap of half asleep transfers before price changes last night. What’s done is done I guess!

    Here’s my GW28 team. G2G?

    -4 1.9itb
    McCarthy
    TAA, VVD, Williams
    Salah (C), Fernandes, Barnes, Cantwell
    Vardy, Jimi, Ings
    (McGovern) (Holgate, KDB, Stevens)

    Holgate > LEI / WOL def next week or maybe Auba in if they have a DGW29

    Cheers

      Looks nice, gl.

        Thanks mate you too. Just noticed you replied last night also. Appreciate it!

    Not looking for answers here, no complaints as I’ve had more than my fair share of good fortune.
    I’ve got Martial, rival has Bruno.
    Team is:
    Patricio
    Williams, VVD, TAA, Lascelles, Boly
    Salah, Martial, Hayden
    Vardy, Ings
    KDB, Grealish, Auba

    It’s probably Martial to Barnes
    And maybe Grealish to Bruno (-4)
    Pity as I was going to save.

    1. Babelcopter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Grealish -> Barnes and pray for Martial

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I did that exact -4 last night. Likely to pay off over time even if not immediately

  6. Teror
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    DCL or Jota? I have Jimenez

  7. Brunsvigeren
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    I really considering Bench Boost this week, I wildcarded last round, 74 points

    Probably 15 players playing then, Good idea? 🙂

    Pope, Mcgregor
    TAA - Boly - Maguire - Stehpens - Lascalles
    Traore - Bruno - Mané - Madisson - JWP
    Firmino - Jimenez - Vardy

    1. benla

        Good formation

        1. Brunsvigeren
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Yea, I kinda like it too, hmm...

      What needs to happen for Leic to have a fixture in GW31?

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Lose at home to Birmingham City next week.

      I haven't had much luck with my transfers recently

      GW23 Mane (injured at start of DGW)
      GW25 Son (injured after 2 games)
      GW25 Wood (injured after one game)
      GW27 Martial (injured after one game)

      It feels like a sideways transfer that could have been used for BGW31, but is Martial to Fernandes the best move here ?

      Pope
      TAA, VVD, Stephens, Soy
      Salah (c), Martial, Traore
      Ings, DCL, Jimenez

      Button, Dendoncker, Rico, KDB

      5m ITB, 1FT

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Martial to mane and vvd to Ricardo pereira

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          I've looked at that. It would be for a hit, and I would be priced you of getting Auba for free in GW29. So is it worth it ?

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Think I’d prefer mane over next 4

    4. Gazza2000
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Morning all, what would you do with this lot ?

      Wouldn't mind a hit but leaning towards saving at the moment.

      1 FT 2.6 ITB

      McCarthy
      TAA Fernandez Stephens Taylor
      Salah Bruno Barnes Hayden
      Jimenez Ings

      Henderson, O'Connell Mahrez Aguero

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Aguero to Vardy looks an easy move to me

        1. Gazza2000
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Yeah it's the obvious move but thinking of getting in Auba next week, already used my WC so would set me up nicely for a coming DGW

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Vardy’s next 4 look great, I’m targeting whoever villa plays!

    5. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Likely doing aguero to Vardy but what do you reckon with my other ft?

      A grealish to Bruno/Maddison/Barnes
      B kdb to mane
      C save and play Fernández (Newcastle)

      1. waldo666
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        A to Bruno

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Thanks waldo

      2. Gazza2000
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Would get Bruno in for Grealish

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Thanks

      3. Marko1985

        B easy for free

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Thanks

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        B looks nice.
        Depends if City get a DGW

        A is safe. Bruno

    6. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Have Williams and Webster as 3rd defender for this GW, both who might not start. Worth a hit to get Doherty, Saïss or Pereira?

      1. Gazza2000
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Nah, not for a hit

      2. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Is Webster playing? I’d be tempted to get pereira for a hit. Should pay off over next 5/6 games

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          He got an assist and 7 pts last GW (on my bench unfortunately), but I think it depends on the system if he plays.

      3. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I’d be tempted.

    7. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      1 FT 5.4m burning a hole in my pocket.

      McCarthy
      TAA(c),VVD,Digne,Lascelles
      Salah,Traore,Mooy
      DCL,Jimenez, Ings

      Henderson,Williams, KDB, Grealish

      Looking at a few options.
      1. Digne,Grealish > Periera,Barnes-4 ( enough left itb for DCL/Ings> Auba in 29)
      2. Grealish,DCL > Fernandes,Vardy -4 forget Auba

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Front 3 looks great value so I’d be tempted to hold those. What about grealish and Digne to Bruno and pereira?

        1. The 12th Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Yeh I’ve thought about that but that means no Auba next week.

        2. The 12th Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Might do that

      2. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I'd do 2. Don't trust Barnes' minutes

    8. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Has there been a good discussion/article on the leicester midfielders? Theres a lot of Barnes picks on here just wondering if that's due to the cost point being lower than grealish or whether people genuinely think hes a better pick than Maddison?

    9. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Is Fernandes the safe, boring Martial replacement? Any others better? 1FT 0.6 ITB (assuming Martial gotta go with my squad)

      McCarthy

      Salah Mane Martial**
      Vardy Ings DCL
