    Is it worth doing Martial+Traore to Bruno+Barnes for a -8??

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

        They are indeed.. but owning players that aren't likely to play is very bad

    2. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      looking at martial+sarr to bruno+barnes but for free
      for a hit would depend on how long martial missing i guess

      1. Wolfman180
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        If Traore and Martial dont play then I'm down to Salah and Cantwell this week :/ not ideal.

  4. Don Kloppeone

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

      Great, a little more time to think about Martial to Fernandes for -4. I'm sure Ole will clear things right up tomorrow.

      1. Pooodle
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Is he scheduled for a press conference?

        I’ll be down to 10 players this week if Martial doesn’t make it so tempted to make the switch for -4 too.

    4. Trippier Hazard

      Pleased about lack of double-rise for Fernandes, has there ever been a 0.2 rise in a player between 2 GWs this season?

      1. kamdaraji
        • 10 Years

        of course

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Is that because you dont think Traore plays?

        1. SuperMane Returns
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Oops, I mean you think Traore plays 🙂

    2. De Gea is GOAT
      • 3 Years

      Im playing Traore but a bit worried he won't start

      1. kamdaraji
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        played 80 mins in the Europa cup on Thursday night. Does this mean he'll start v Spurs? we can only wait and see

  15. Foozeball
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Have no one available on the bench for this BGW but have 1 FT

    Keep or sell Martial? I'm 0.1 short of a straight swap to Bruno Fernandes
    I could also sell Grealish given that Villa have bad fixtures after the blank anyways. Got him when he was cheap though, so would be difficult to get him back if he hits form again

    Current team:
    McCarthy
    TAA - Robertson - Soy - Taylor
    Salah - Martial* - Dendo
    Vardy - Jimenez - Ings

    Henderson, KdB, Grealish, O'Connell
    1 FT, 0.2 itb

    1. Brooksy86
      • 3 Years

    Ryan
    TAA. Robbo. Soyuncu

    Ings. Vardy. Greenwood*

    So my Martial + Bruno differential lasted one GW, can't catch a break this season!

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

      Bruno is too impressive for doubters to question if he can continue the form. With Martial injured, his backers will just get Bruno as his direct replacement..

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        yup, which is very annoying for me lol

    2. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Martial did the same earlier in the season. Perform for 2-3 gws and get injured. Frustrating to watch as well. However, did tick along nicely whenever I owned him. So, getting rid is better? Does Ole have press conference today?

    3. kamdaraji
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Don't worry. He'll haul as I didn't get him

  20. kamdaraji
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    hopefully no hits this week will result in a rank rise

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

      Fingers crossed! Good luck!

      1. kamdaraji

    2. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      thinking the same... might just keep Martial this GW rather than taking a hit

    3. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Was thinking of saving a transfer out of the 2 for possible dgw news but might have to use both now

    4. ted mcsheenery
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Way to go! 2 fts ftw!
      Crap team will do this week..playing Donk n Webster..Traore..
      ..but it's all going to kick off when the blanks n doubles start!

      1. kamdaraji
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        it is a blank!

  21. zhiren
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Save FT or get someone from Wolves / Burnley to prep for GW 31? Or hop onto the Leicester train and hope they score big?

    1) Save FT and hope that Tanganga & Hayden both plays
    2) Hayden -> Traore
    3) Tanganga -> Saiss
    4) Tanganga -> C Taylor
    5) Kun -> Vardy
    6) Hayden -> Perez
    7) Hayden -> Barnes

    Pope
    TAA // Gomez // Tanganga // Stephens
    Salah // Bruno // Hayden // Mooy
    Ings // Jiminez

    Bench: Button, Egan, KDB, Kun

    1. kamdaraji
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      not that confident about Leicester. Geting Wolves and Burnley players is a good idea

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

        Thanks! Looks like it's 3 or 4 then! With Arsenal out of Europe, I might keep Kun for a potential DGW 29.

  22. True Deadzoner
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    so City likely have DGW29 following is Burnley, keep Mahrez now?

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

      I am probably keeping Kun!

  23. SHOWSTOPPERRR

    Stick with DCL or shift for Ings?
    Have to downgrade Traore/Aurier for a hit to be able to afford him!

    From Ole's comments and from Martial's injury, it looks like Greenwood may start in the derby on Sunday. A blessing in the BGW

      How about the same team as today? Wasn’t it their first team?

    Pope
    TAA VVD Soyuncu Dunk
    Salah Traore Dendoncker
    Ings Jimenez Vardy

    Henderson KDB Grealish Lundstram

    0 FT, 1.5 ITB

    Is anything worth a hit here to play over Dendoncker??

    Thanks all..

      0-0 is my prediction, so the less likely one to get a YC imo 😀

    Get Pope for Henderson or save ft for the doublegw, despite not really knowing how to stretch funds next week except for Soy to Ota?

    Cant get Auba except for Vardy and a Grealish downgrade to Gundog or Ceballos or Saka.
    Would have a problem for 31 too then..i actually didnt want to use fh there
