Who I’m considering as my FPL replacement for out-of-form Danny Ings

With some big Gameweeks on the horizon, I’ve got some big decisions to make about chips and my budget forwards.

Hopefully, they will prove less stressful than the ones I had to consider over the weekend.

It’s Saturday morning, minutes before the Gameweek 29 deadline, and I’ve yet to make my transfers. Clearly the Double Gameweek was a big draw for me.

I wanted Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) due to his goal-scoring pedigree but to get him I had to take some hits.

With questions over Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) starting I was prepared to take a risk and sell him.

I decided to take out the in-form Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.4m) for Aubameyang but justified the move by still having Richarlison (£8.3m) as my Everton attacker.

I wanted some type of City cover, so Phil Foden (£5.1m) came to the fore as my plucky differential, with talk of him starting the Manchester City derby. That’s where I should have stopped.

But for some reason, I convinced myself that Nicolas Pépé (£9.2m) was going to roll over West Ham and Manchester City, so signed him in place of Anthony Martial (£7.9m).

Alas, none of those transfers paid off over the weekend and I scored under the average which always guarantees a red arrow. I now need to hope that Manchester City v Arsenal turns out to be a festival of goals with De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero (£11.9m) having an off-day. Not asking for much, am I?

After recording four green arrows in a row, my FPL team seemed to be making the right kind of progress but Liverpool’s undoing against Watford was an unwanted fork in the road.

Ominous comments from Guardiola after City flop in Double Gameweek opener

Unfortunately, I tried to remedy that by investing in Double Gameweek 29 but that hasn’t gone to plan so far. I’m down 100,000+ places and really need a slice of luck to get some traction back.

On the plus side, I still have three chips in hand, the Wildcard, Free Hit and Bench Boost.

With another Blank Gameweek and at least one more Double Gameweek this season, I’m still hopeful for a much-needed lift.

As tempting as it may be, my initial thoughts on Blank Gameweek 31 is to refrain from using the Free Hit.

With my current squad, I have seven potential players who have a fixture that week and using my upcoming transfers I can get up to nine potential starters. After that, I can use my moves for Blank Gameweek 31 itself to bump my numbers up to 11 active players.

The only downside is that I would be following my -8 hit with two consecutive -4 hits. But once the final set of Double Gameweeks are announced I will be better placed to use my remaining chips.

After some blistering form between Gameweek 12 and Gameweek 22, Danny Ings (£7.1m) has recently struggled in front of goal. In fact, he’s only netted one league in his last seven Premier League appearances which is unacceptable, even for a so-called budget striker.

I also find it concerning that Ings has failed to register attacking returns against the likes of Aston Villa, West Ham and Newcastle United.

It might seem foolish selling him before Southampton’s trip to Norwich, but that’s what I intend to do. If I do sell Ings (and with Blank Gameweek 31 also in mind), my options are fairly limited, but in that price range, three players are on my shortlist – Jordan Ayew (£5.1m), Diogo Jota (£6.4m) and Troy Deeney (£6.2m).

All three have a similar number of attacking returns and minutes per point despite their total playing time since Gameweek 1 being significantly different.

Of note, Jota has scored 30 of his points in the past three Gameweeks, despite his poor conversion rate as a whole throughout the season.

Ayew has also been an inconsistent performer but has come back on the radar with two goals and an assist since Gameweek 27.

As for Deeney, with the exception of the match against Liverpool, his form of late hasn’t been great but he’s worth considering as Watford are fighting for survival and he is their main attacking output.

I already have Raul Jiménez (£8.0m) but I’m tempted to double and get Jota purely on Wolves’ generous fixture run, in comparison to Crystal Palace and Watford over the next two Gameweeks.

Metrics

With it still being mathematically possible for Liverpool to wrap up the Premier League in Gameweek 30, Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) seems like a no-nonsense captain pick.

The fact they are playing Everton in the Merseyside derby also gives the occasion an extra edge. If I also had Sadio Mané (£12.4m), I probably would have considered captaining him too.

Having said that, one of the hang-ups of Double Gameweek 29 is that I will have Aubameyang still at hand and he could be a good armband shout against Brighton.

    Think I've settled on this team for GW31, would be a -4, but don't mind:

    Pope
    TAA Doherty Boly Taylor
    Salah Mane Sarr
    Jimenez Wood

    Bench: McCarthy Aubameyang Lascelles Hayden

    1. Young Lingard
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Much stronger than mine if the GW goes to form you’ll have a great return
        Amazing as like you I’m struggling to find an asset in the spurs v West Ham game

      • Devo-McDuff
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Same as me but I won't have Wood, though I could for a -4. Maybe I will yet.

    2. dbeck

      Anyone outside liverpool and Wolves we could target a GW early who plays in 31?

      Specifically looking at a Grealish replacement that plays in 31, wondering if best to hold jack one more game then move out or ditch now?

      1. Jarvish Scott Talent
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Scout Spurs tonight - 3rd best fixture on paper in GW31 and one of their players may catch the eye.

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          but spurs have united who arent conceding so not sure its a good move to do this week

        2. Young Lingard
            2 months, 22 days ago

            I can’t find anyone in that fixture at all . Alli to me is overpriced and the others I’d only want for a week aren’t nailed. Would love a son return to raise an eyebrow

          • Long ago I drew a walrus
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            On form I'd make West Ham favourites to beat Spurs xD

        3. Le Bluff
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I have enough in the bank to do Grealish > Alli this week.

          Utd are in great form but Alli has a lot of things going for him (OOP, pens, eye-test, stats).

          I'm also NOT free-hitting in GW 31, and Alli has some half decent fixtures so I think I'll go for him.

          1. dbeck
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            I think thats fair, Alli is good but I cant get to him.

            KDB to Alli seems too risky

        4. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Antonio or Bowen any good, slim pickings isnt it

        5. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I’m buying Bowen

      2. Athletic Nasherbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Would you bench boost this?

        McCarthy Giroud Fernandez Stevens

        Henderson
        TAA Doherty Hanley
        Salah Pepe Fernandes Richarlison Cantwell
        Aguero DCL

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          i'd be tempted, that newcastle vs sheff utd game has 0-0 written all over it

        2. The Strokes
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Giroud should play over Cantwell
          Not sure if I would start DCL or Hanley
          Taking all of this into account I wouldn’t BB what will be left over

      3. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Play which one?

        A) Perez (wat)
        B) Lascelles (SHU)
        C) Saiss (whu)

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          C

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          B

        3. The Strokes
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 22 days ago

          B or C

      4. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        The Dinger was always going on a cold streak the second i brought him in, same with Traore

        1. Young Lingard
            2 months, 22 days ago

            The fortunate thing is most are forced to move him due to GW31
            My fear was that I’d got him at the wrong time and then I’d ponder an in form ings to an inform dcl but too late
            Thankfully that’s not an option
            I think I’ll grab deeney and then find a full time option post ge31

          • The Strokes
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 22 days ago

            What is your next transfer in ?

            1. DAZZ
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              Im keeping him for Norwich and FH31, then it’s an easy switch to DCL. This week VVD>Alonso

              1. The Strokes
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 22 days ago

                Alonso is a good move.
                Wont get cold this one.

          Last Man Standing Update (356 teams)

          Current safety score with autosubs = 43
          Top score = 100
          LMS average = 54.35 (-1.58) = 52.77
          Players played = 9.42/12.14
          Captains played = 28.01%

          1 game to go.

        3. Dynamic Duos
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Have to keep Ings for Norwich, brace incoming

          1. The Strokes
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 22 days ago

            I went for Jota 2 days ago. Preparing 31 GW ...
            Plus I'm unsure that Norwish defense is worst than WH

            1. Devo-McDuff
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 22 days ago

              Hopefully Southampton won't have a man sent off after 30 minutes though like they did against WH, pretty big factor.

              1. The Strokes
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 22 days ago

                Don't tell me, I had BB and had Ings + Stephens on my bench ...

        4. 2EyedTurk
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Am I correct in thinking that saving a transfer before a Free Hit is pointless? Thanks in advance

          1. The Strokes
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Yes after a FH you will have 1 transfer remaining

          2. Jarvish Scott Talent
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            If your squad can't be improved with that FT it isn't pointless.

          3. Dacra
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Yep. if free hitting in 31, no point saving a FT this week - best to use it up thinking about 34?

          4. Harvey?
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Potential Increase of Team value?

          5. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Correct - am FHing in 31 so no point banking a transfer as will come back to 1 FT in 32.

        5. King Kohli
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          What would you do here?

          A. Play Cantwell this gw.
          Gw 31: Gomez + KDB > Catchcart + Mane for free
          B. Traore > Doucoure this gw.
          Gw 31: Gomez + KDB > Saiss + Mane(-4)

          Hendo
          TAA - Gomez - Egan
          Salah - KDB - Bruno - Traore
          Auba - Jimenez - Jota

          (Pope - Basham - Cantwell - Taylor)

          1 FT 1.6 ITB.

        6. The Strokes
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Bench 3 ?

          1. Saka (BHA A)
          2. Perez (Wat A)
          3. Stephens (Nor A)
          4. O’Connell (New A)
          5. VVD (Eve A)

          1. Stram Dunk
              2 months, 22 days ago

              123

              1. The Strokes
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 22 days ago

                I agree, I put them in the order I would bench them.

          2. Dacra
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            I can field 7 by 31 without a hit.(5x now + 2x ft)

            Or, I can FH 31, and then field 9x without a hit in 34 (4x FT before 34 if i FH 31), based on only the 4x guaranteed going ahead. Plus maybe more depending if more games go ahead, based on who wins FA cup ties.

            Putting it like that, FH 31 seems best?

            Need to decide before the deadline this week, as if deciding to FH 31 this weeks transfer should be to get a 34 player, something glamourous like Rico > Diop or Holgate..

          3. Dynamic Duos

            @ TorresMagic , what is your chip and blank 31 strategy, with no WC? I have used my WC to.

              This week has been a disaster for me as I used my WC, dropped McCarthy and Vardy and gambled on Pepe Auba and Saka. Lesson learned now.
              Dropped from 20k to 35k.

              Need your help here guys as I have 9 gw31 players, and the plan was to save and get 2 more next week, but after that horror show I’m not sure what to do:
              1) Pepe-> Fernandes (will have 10players for gw31)
              2) Pepe-> Chelsea mid (10players for gw31)
              3) save as per the plan
              4) KdB Gomez -> mane Tanganga

              Krul
              Taa Doherty Cathcart
              Salah KdB Pepe Doucoure
              Auba Dcl Jota

                How much help is he/she getting? I've got one a bit younger and one a bit older and can't imagine either of them lasting more than a couple of GWs to be honest.

                    This reminds me, does any remember a poster called kiwi villain? He was around lots in preseason, defending Villa when everyone was saying they were ‘doing a fulham’.

                      Oh yeah I remember him, he had this weird personal vendetta against Richarlison last year. Maybe he's waiting for Richarlison to start blanking again?

                        I just remember him raging at anyone who criticised anyone who thought Villa would go down. Or opposed any non Villa players in FPL. He was adamant Guilbert was the best defender, and Wesley was champions league level striker.

                          He was a right bellcheese. Good he has gone. Unfortunately about 10 new ones have popped up in his place though 😀

                          Sounds like a troll. But it's a shame because Villa have played good football at times this season, albeit sporadically. Wonder what could have been if McGinn could have been available for the whole season.

                          1. HamezMace

                            I like Villa as a club, would like to have seen them stay up, but it’s a big ask now I think.

                            Norwich, Brighton and Villa for me.

                            1. Long ago I drew a walrus
                              • 9 Years
                              2 months, 22 days ago

                              Agree with the original poster that Norwich are playing so much better than Villa now that it's quite feasible Villa finish rock bottom. I think Norwich will go down with a fight. Personally I think Bournemouth over Brighton to go down because their fixtures are dreadful

                              1. HamezMace

                                Norwich are good to watch for sure.
                                Relegation fight far more exciting than the title picture that’s for sure.

                  Wonder were Grealish will play next season.

                  1. HamezMace

                    2 months, 22 days ago

                    Deserves CL, but not sure which clubs are looking for a player in his role with CL.

                    City have KdB.
                    United have Bruno
                    Leicester - Maddison
                    Chelsea - Mount. Not on grealish level but looks like that want to stick with him.
                    Liverpool - doesn’t suit the system.

                    1. Old Man
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 8 Years
                      2 months, 22 days ago

                      Arsenal will be losing Ozil. Outside chance of them qualifying for CL.

                      1. HamezMace
                        • 5 Years
                        2 months, 22 days ago

                        Can’t see Arsenal getting CL, but no doubt a good move and step up for Grealish.

                        I hope he gets a chance at the euros and gets a move to a really big club.

                        (Sorry Tom)

                      • 9 Years
                      2 months, 22 days ago

                      United would go for him, and if we don't it won't be because of Bruno imo. Would be a statement signing for Woodward which has always been more important than how the player is used in the team

                      1. HamezMace
                        • 5 Years
                        2 months, 22 days ago

                        How do you see Grealish fitting into a midfield with Bruno?

                        It’s one of the other for me. Grealish would be too expensive to be a rotation player.

                        Think Utd need a striker, and winger more, as marquee signings this summer.

                        1. Long ago I drew a walrus
                          • 9 Years
                          2 months, 22 days ago

                          Grealish can play wider I suppose, but then Rashford will be back. Just saying it won't stop United making a bid and it certainly won't stop the rumours, it was literally in the bbc gossip section today about a 100m bid for Grealish and Bellingham

                          1. HamezMace
                            • 5 Years
                            2 months, 22 days ago

                            I read about Bellingham too, but surely he doesn’t go straight in to the United team at 16?

                            Always gossip around Utd, seems like a Ole has actually got a transfer strategy though. Grealish would tick the box. But I’m not sure how he fits in with Bruno as a ten. Rashford/Martial and possible Sancho wide.

                            Like I say I think a proper winger is what Utd want, not really suited to Grealish game.

                            1. Long ago I drew a walrus
                              • 9 Years
                              2 months, 22 days ago

                              As long as Pogba goes. We could have benefited from a Herrera type this year actually, someone to play alongside or instead of McTominay, and of course a proper no. 9

                      City could need him after Silva gone, he can play left attacker with a a striker and Sterling on the other side. United, hm, can play one of them further down, both players capable of playing both as 8, 10 and Grealish on the wing.

                      He is much better than all of Chelsea´s mids.

                      As a Liverpool fan, he could def play as the creative one in the trio in midfield. Coutinho played there and Grealish is way better tactically and works harder.

                      Manchester United:

                      Up Top: Some Good Forward (maybe stick with Martial)

                      Attack Wings: Grealish and Rashford

                      #10: Bruno

                      This is a freakish team, when everybody is healthy

                      1. HamezMace

                        Grealish isn’t really a winger though. Not in the traditional sense, which I think is what they want, like Sancho.

                        1. Vasqujg
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          2 months, 21 days ago

                          Grealish is much more than a wing, that’s were Bruno, Jack, and Rashford could just float and terrorize defenses

                          You wouldn’t need to change names to change tactics these guys are multi tooled players

                          By the way, I’m not a MU fan, just saying

                    Interesting that no foreign teams seem to be in for him. May tell you something.

                      2 months, 22 days ago

                      Honestly they probably couldn’t afford him.
                      The German clubs only want to sign English players under 18.
                      Realistically only Madrid or Barca could afford him, and he doesn’t fit the profile really, he’s not a superstar instagrammer.

                        Ndidi showed how you deal with him yesterday - kick him early and he disappears.

                          I don’t know, didn’t see the game yesterday, but I’ve seen him get plenty of rough treatment throughout the season and respond well.

                          I like the boy, and would like to see him playing CL next year for someone.

                          It's not so much him personally, more that Villa as a one-man team have been found out. City obviously but also Southampton and Bournemouth in recent weeks. Put two men on Grealish and the rest of them are gash

                    I agree with you which brings me to my next question.
                    Why is everyone talking about binging in Sarr and Deeney for GW 31 ...

                FH 31 here...
                Can I justify Ings to Giroud for - 4? Or is that madness?

                    If you fancy Giroud's 2 pointers.

                    What is Abraham injury news?
                    The transfeer is sexy for GW 30 but if Giroud never plays again after that then not sure it's worth the risk.

                        To be he is not worth the risk even if Abraham never plays again.

                    Planned transfers before BGW31
                    Traore, Auba and Ings > Sarr, Jimi and Wood using 2ft and 1 hit.

                    9/10 players for BGW31. Should I hold until GW31 to do the transfers? Auba and Ings has decent GW30 fixtures. Ings has been poor. I could bring in Woods against a poor City defence
