Who are the best FPL captain options for Blank Gameweek 28?

Liverpool and Leicester assets are at the centre of an intriguing captaincy debate for Blank Gameweek 28.

With Manchester City out of the picture thanks to the EFL Cup final, we have fewer options to draw on – but that does not make picking a skipper any easier.

As the Friday night deadline hurtles closer, we have executed a deep-dive into the Opta data to help you chose the best captain for Blank Gameweek 28.

As this article uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those signed up for the 2019/20 season, the half-season package or a monthly membership can access it in full.

Captain Poll

After scoring in Monday night’s 3-2 win over West Ham, Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) tops the Blank Gameweek 28 captain poll by a considerable margin.

The Egyptian faces a Watford side that has lost the momentum of Nigel Pearson’s December appointment, conceding at least twice in three of their last four matches.

Returning to the scene of his first-ever Premier League goal for Liverpool, Salah has scored four times since Double Gameweek 24, more than any of his colleagues. That has led to 42.1% of voters lending him their support for the Blank Gameweek 28 captaincy.

However, Salah has struggled for goals on the road in 2019/20, netting just twice in league games outside of Anfield. In fact, Salah is still yet to score in an away match that Sadio Mané (£12.3m) has started this season.

The Senegalese international has scored in back-to-back games since returning from his Double Gameweek 24 injury and has a total of five goals away from home this year, compared to Salah’s two. Involved in three assists in such matches, admittedly fewer than the Egyptian’s five, Mané still has more goal involvements on the road than his colleague on the other flank of the attack (eight to seven).

Despite that, the former Southampton attacker is a long way off the top of the captain poll, with just 12.1% of our voters selecting him as the best option for the armband this weekend.

Ahead of him is Jamie Vardy (£9.7m), who, despite not scoring a Premier League goal since Gameweek 18, when Leicester were beaten 3-1 at Manchester City, has attracted the backing of 20.2% of the voters.

The Foxes face a Norwich side that, despite recent improvements at the back, were well-beaten by Wolves in Gameweek 27, conceding three times at Molineux.

Daniel Farke’s men remain in one of the worst sides defensive at home so far, averaging two goals conceded per match at Carrow Road after 13 outings there. That’s the second-worst in the Premier League.

The question is whether an out-of-form Vardy can capitalise on that this weekend. Interestingly, only 1.9% have leant their support to his team-mate Harvey Barnes (£6.0m), who has outscored the forward by 33 points to 14 from Gameweek 19 onwards.

That is good enough for fifth-place in the poll, just behind Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.7m) on 7.6%. The Liverpool right-back has not blanked in a game he has started since Gameweek 13, still on a remarkable run of reliability.

He did not even need a clean sheet to get two assists, maximum bonus and 10 points against West Ham, suggesting there could be more to come against Watford.

Despite his Gameweek 27 blank against Aston Villa, Danny Ings (£7.1m) has been backed by 1.6% of our voters as Southampton prepare to face West Ham. Meanwhile, his colleague Shane Long (£4.6m), who outperformed and outscored Ings last weekend, was chosen by 0.2%.

Roberto Firmino (£9.7m) comes into Blank Gameweek 28 with more away goals than any other Liverpool player this season but only 1.6% of the voters believe he is worth captaining against Watford.

James Maddison (£7.4m) and Ayoze Pérez (£6.2m) are the other alternatives in the Leicester attack for the trip to Norwich, pulling in 1.5% and 1.3% support respectively.

Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) and Bruno Fernandes (£8.2m) are the only other options backed by more 1%.

    Traore looks done now for the PL

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year

      For some time yeah. Jota form key !

    2. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Agreed mate atleast for the time being he does. But of a headache as I was relying on him as my 4th mid.

    3. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Got no choice really but to play him and accept his 1 pointer this GW.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Same. Gutted

    4. Earthling
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      He and Lacazette, congratulations to them, they're Europa League players now.

  4. Cheesyzoot
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Mount or Willian as a Grealish replacement?

    Already have Vardy and don’t fancy the foxes double up

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I fancy Leicester to thump next 3 opponents.
      Barnes Perez are way better options IMO

      1. Cheesyzoot
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Fair play you may have swayed me.

        Who would you go for out of Barnes and Pérez?

        1. Freddiebell
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Barnes more chance of being benched, at least this gw

          1. Cheesyzoot
            3 months, 4 days ago

            So Pérez the safer bet?

  5. Amey
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 4 days ago

    I'm planning to ride GW 31 with FT. WC already used so won't sell any first 11 players i guess for GW 31 guys.

    really hope that Liverpool & Newcastle goes out of FA cup 😀

    Will have to play 4/5 otherwise in that BGW.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Only Jimenez in the team.
      Mariappa is there but not sure he'll start a game again for Watford 😛

    2. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I'm in a similar position with just Doherty & Jimenez.

      Have Traore but thinking of selling him this week now.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Doherty is a very good buy !
        Kudos for that.
        I'm getting Perez (most probably) this GW. Could go Grealish to Richarlison but not sure about that.

        I might end up keeping Mariappa just to fill in some bodies in GW 31 😀

        1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Perez over Barnes?

          Richarlison seems like a good option the fixtures are the problem but he has done well against the big teams this season.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Perez is a gut feeling pick yeah.
            Problem with Richarlison move is, i really expect Perez to haul once at least in next 3 gw's. Grealish having a fixture in GW 31 is also quite possible
            So ...

            1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Yup I agree with that one or two of the Leicester mids will most certainly explode over these 3 gameweeks. Richarlison might get 1-2 returns but not huge hauls.

              1. Amey
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 4 days ago

                Exactly.
                I might go mad & sell Vardy in 31 for DCL
                Let's see how his form goes till then. He has best 3 fixtures of the season remaining IMO. If he doesn't do good, it's goodbye from me

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

      Would be nice if Arsenal gets knocked out 😉

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Triple Southampton here.
        I'd love that though 2 are MCCARTHY Stephens & they should score against Southampton

    4. El Presidente
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Newcastle is quite possible, Liverpool.... doubt it.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Yep.
        CL game, Merseyside derby near to the fa cup game makes me hopeful 😀

        1. El Presidente
          3 months, 4 days ago

          If I had to put money in it, I would say these are the teams playing GW31:

          Norwich, Everton, Watford, Wolves, Burnley, Bournemouth, Newcastle and Aston Villa.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 4 days ago

            You're right most probably.
            From these teams i guess I'll get one each from Everton Wolves & Burnley over next 3 gw's

    Sod you Aguero with your xGI, where were you when I needed you? 🙁

  7. Tony Martial
    • 1 Year

    A-Evans (better team)
    B- Recce James (Potential DGW)
    C- other up to 6.0?

      B

  8. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Worth a punt on Mount here? Or go Barnes?

    Son+Grealish >> Bruno+Mount (-4)

    McCarthy
    TAA • Soy • Aurier
    Son* • Salah • Traoré
    Vardy • Jiménez • Ings
    (McGov. Rico. Lunds*. KDB*. Grealish*)

    1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Barnes over Mount.

      Can you afford those moves with Traore instead of Grealish?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah but can’t field 11 then? Unless Rico was to play

        1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Not sure if it's worth keeping Traore for his 1 pointer.

          If you guys lose to West Brom in the Cup Grealish could be a good option for GW31.

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Be crazy to sell if he ended up playing though. Unlikely I know

            1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              I have a similar decision to make and I'm currently leaning towards keeping Grealish over Traore.

              Evening Rafa.......with the injury news from Newcastle, would you play Hayden ahead of Cantwell this GW ??

              1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 4 days ago

                Tricky. Probably not. But I do think Hayden starts (as defensive mid)

  9. Chucky
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Traore starting today means he won't be in the playing 11 against Spurs? 🙁

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Doubt it. Lost his place in the prem in seems

    2. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Probably

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

      ... and Doherty as well I suspect.

      1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        They don't have another RWB.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Position where Traore has played previously 😮

          1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I know but that was very early in the season and I think Nuno realised he's not a good option at wing back.

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Hopefully for you, you're right bro.
              I'll get Saiss if i can manage a FT till GW 31

      2. Jullepuu
        3 months, 4 days ago

        You must be kidding right?

        1. jtreble
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I’ll see how many minutes he gets. May still bring him in ...

          1. Jullepuu
            3 months, 4 days ago

            He has started so many matches in a row now that we can consider him nailed

    4. DeadStar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Not 100% I guess, but I am a biased owner currently. I mean there are players playing tonight you would expect to start too. Doherty, Moutinho and Dendoncker have all started tonight and if any of them were injured/rested for against Spurs then Traore could start.

      1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Injury yes but being rested is wishful thinking. Traore played only 60 mins in the EL last time out and still didn't get a start in PL.

        1. DeadStar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Oh I agree it's unlikely but Traore was a starter not too long ago.

          1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I agree with that but things change quickly in FPL and you have to act fast specially with these cheaper mids. I remember holding onto Mount earlier in the season when he was being benched didn't work out well.

            1. DeadStar
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              I agree totally. Problem for me this week (and I imagine for many others) is Traore is one of only 8/9 "playing players" this week. I may have to hold him this week and take the likely 1 pointer.

      2. El Presidente
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Boly as well

    5. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Doesn't look good for his owners.

    6. Chucky
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      cheers all... will have to settle with 1 pointer from Traore then...

    7. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Jonny is out. That means vinaigre who Just recently back from injury or they might play doherty left and Adama right. Would not count on it but not totally impossible. Much better IMO.

  10. Make America Greta Again
    • 6 Years

    Noticed Messi has a total of 985 goals (696) and assists (289). Will he be the first to a 1000? or has it been done before?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      He already reached 1000. He is the first and only.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      In La liga fantasy game, he'd be the auto © for 90% people 😀

    3. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Pele and romario have scored over 1000 goals I think

      1. El Presidente
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Pele for sure.

    4. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Sounds unreal. What a player.

    5. Tinkermania
      3 months, 4 days ago

      It's been done many times, just that it's not covered by the press. I noticed you didn't specify the league/country.

      1. El Presidente
        3 months, 4 days ago

        At a high level not many times. Pub leagues and/or lower divisions? Maybe.

      2. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        No it hasn't, you're just making stuff up lol.

    6. Tinkermania
      3 months, 4 days ago

      For the record, he has 437 League goals for Barca.

  11. DeadStar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Does anyone know where I can compare the number of goals scored at this stage of the season compared to previous seasons? I keep hearing "VAR is taking goals away from football" but is it? Have less goals been scored this season compared to previous ones?

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I guess its tough to compare since quality of defense looks comparatively worse this year

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Huddersfield
        Fulham
        We're really pathetic last season. Same with United Spurs Chelsea Wolves defenses (wolves because they let 1 go literally every GW)

    2. Jullepuu
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I would just count it up manually. Doesn't take that long. Google could also help you with that.

      I remember there was a good video done regarding this before the season started. In the video there were stats from leagues that already VAR and they compared the amount of goals scored and penalties given I think. In some leagues the numbers in increased and in some the numbers went down. I can look up the video for you if you want to watch it

    3. Tinkermania
      3 months, 4 days ago

      It is supposed to be lower of course. It's taking away goals that would have been wrongly given. Rightly so!

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        It is also giving goals and penalties that wouldn't have been given.

        1. Tinkermania
          3 months, 4 days ago

          That's true as well, but there is more goals chalked off that would have stood last year than given goals which wouldn't have been last year.

  12. Duffy Dunk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Would you play Saiss (TOT(a)) or Stephens (WHU(a)) ?

    1. Tony Martial
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Saiss

    2. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Both will probably concede, start Stephens for attacking returns

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        This

    Saiss rested or dropped?

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Rested

    2. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      With a 4-0 aggregate advantage, I'd assume he's rested.

        You could do some kind of mini wc (-4) but not sure where to get funds...

      1. Tony Martial

        Good option have two Wolves though,and was planning Cahill TO Saiss next week!

    2. Holmes
      • 6 Years

      Evans, Boly

      1. Tony Martial

      1. Tony Martial

        Have Cahill - still a good option?

        1. El Presidente
          3 months, 4 days ago

          double up on Palace no. Maybe AWB?

          1. Tony Martial
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Another great option but I also own B.Williams hahahha

            Is that one worth it though - we are tightening up at the back lately!

            1. El Presidente
              3 months, 4 days ago

              I would swap Williams for AWB

    Thoughts on Warde prowse?
    Need a sub 6 m and no much choice out there ....

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Cantwell, Maximin, Snodgrass. As you say, not many choices.

      I may go for Jorginho

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

        Have cantwell already. Need someone who can be in my starting 11.

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Cant afford Barnes? Moutinho is also an option if you have a Wolves spot left.

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

            I can but then I can't upgrade DCL to Jimmy ...

            Thanks as always Holmes

      2. Lazaretti
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Jorginho would be my option too. 4.9 with penalties.

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

          Is he Def on penalties ? Thanks

    How likely is it that City will have a double in GW29?

    When will we get more info?

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

      Does it not depend if arsenal goes out tonight ?

      1. in sane in de bruyne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        True dat! I had forgotten. Thanks.

    2. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Arsenal look very likely to go through vs Olymp so its a moot point

    3. Jullepuu
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Chelsea could also face them in gw 29 but I doubt it

  22. motit
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Draft mode -
    pick two:
    1. Steven Bergwijn
    2. Mount
    3. Willian

    THX

    1. Earthling
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      How many people are playing in your league, just curious. Mine has only two, including me.

      1. motit
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        6 players -
        mount is available for picking -
        Bergwijn and Willian in my squad

        1. Earthling
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I'm not sure but Mount played last weekend and CL this week as well, so maybe RLC plays instead or something.

          What about Armstrong from Southampton? Fabianski was absolutely terrible against Liverpool as well.

  23. DA Minnion
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Traore scores.

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Should have captained him

    2. jamesjoseph2770
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Confirms that he won't play the weekend match...

    3. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      If you are a Traore owner then you should be dissapointed he started today. Form means nothing if you cant play in starting 11

      1. Lazaretti
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        It is good news to me. Imo Traore didn't play bcs of fitness issues now he seems to be fit.

    4. Deyanski
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      The beast is back!

    5. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Good. Now some owners hope he has won his starting slot back. Just like when Lundstram scored.

    6. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Shame he won't start the weekend

  24. RECKLESS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    So Jota rested roday and Traore starts. Guess that shuts the door on him for epl nailedness. On the bright side Saiss looks nailed now with europa rest

  25. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Best -4?

    A. Son+Lunds >> Bruno+Doherty
    B. Son+Lunds >> Maddison+Robbo
    C. Son+Grealish >> Bruno+Barnes (+2.1m)

    C allows Doherty or Robbo next week. Slightly leaning towards that for this GW.

    1. Colonel Shoe 肝池
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      a

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        So you think Doherty outscores Barnes this week?

    2. Jullepuu
      3 months, 4 days ago

      C but I would go for Rich over Bruno if you don't have DCL

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Not a Bruno fan? Passed my eye test

        1. Jullepuu
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Not a fan yet but I could soon be one. I'm just scared that United will start to play horribly soon

  26. jamesjoseph2770
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    So. Joya is now nailed on for the weekend??

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yes (unless injured)

      1. jamesjoseph2770
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Sorry. Jota...No news of injury so far. Let's see...

    Thoughts?

    Ryan
    TAA - Robbo - Lascelles - Williams
    Salah - Maddison - Traore
    Vardy (c) - Ings - Jimi
    (Martin - Hayden - Lund - KDB)

    2 free transfers, 0.5 in the bank

    A) Ryan & Williams > Pope & Taylor
    B) Ryan & Williams > McCarthy & Boly
    C) Williams & Ings > Boly & DCL
    B) Williams > Taylor or Saiss

  28. RECKLESS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Play Rico vs che or do -4 for -->
    1) Kelly to Perriera/Chilwell (may blank in gw 31 as Lei have easy Fa cup match vs Birmingham)
    2) Kelly to Doherty
    3) Kelly to Boly
    Currently on playing Rico and not confident of 5-6pts from.any above

  29. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I was thinking if freakish to Barnes.

    My concern is he went through a purple patch of good form

    3 goals and an assist in 4 games. That's great sure. But 1 assist in 12 games before that. Games he started and some he didn't

    Have Leicester had a formation change in recent weeks which has accommodated Barnes in this system and therefore he is now a standout pick? Fixtures are there no doubt but need a balanced view on whether this is a position/formation change from Leicester or of its just a case of a bit of form which concerns me. appreciate any assistance

    1. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      He's passing the eye test, that is for sure. Probably been a bit unlucky not to get more points.

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Tempted to go for tielemans instead

    3. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Freakish is grealish

      Would be interesting to get some feedback. Don't fancy Perez, it will be Barnes or nothing

      1. Jullepuu
        3 months, 4 days ago

        He is good for the price but that's about it imo

    4. Garfield1001
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Not feeling the Barnes love but appreciate he’s the best of the bunch around that price point

  30. in sane in de bruyne
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3 months, 4 days ago

    Team is poor for this gameweek and I want to have some fun.
    These moves for a double hit?...

    Digne, Mahrez, Grealish out
    4.6(Taylor?), Fernandes, Martial in

    Leaves me with

    McCarthy (4.0)
    Trent Gomez Lascelles 4.6 (Rico)
    Salah Fernandes Martial Cantwell (KDB)
    Vardy Ings (Auba)

    1. Jullepuu
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Don't think it's worth the but regardless of that I would go for Rich over one of the United mids just to sort of spread the risk

      1. Jullepuu
        3 months, 4 days ago

        *worth the hit

      2. in sane in de bruyne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Don't want Richarlison really, feel like I've missed that train. Thanks.
