Recapping the best Leicester players ahead of FPL restart

Now that the Premier League comeback has been confirmed, we are continuing our series of refresher articles to help you prepare for Fantasy Premier League’s return.

In this run of articles, we are recapping which players were in the best form when the United Kingdom’s coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak suspended the top-flight in March.

To do this, we are looking at each club’s last six matches, continuing with Leicester.

We have also assessed the impact of recently appointed Premier League managers, so this series covers the other 15 sides who have been under consistent leadership all season.

It must be said that a lot has changed since the end of Gameweek 29, not least because Premier League players have been unable to train with their team-mates for over two months. However, it still serves to remind ourselves which assets were the most appealing before the break.

As this article uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those signed up to a valid package can access it in full.

    It won't be to everyone's taste, but I quite like the look of this unorthodox 5-3-2 FH Team for the DGW.

    Ederson
    O'Connell - Stevens - Baldock - Doherty - TAA
    Salah - KDB - Grealish
    Aguero - Auba

      Yeah could be great but I think too risky for me

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

      I looked at a 532 too actually. There could certainly be some good value back there.

    3. Noah’s Ark

      Played around with this draft for a little while.

      Henderson
      Alonso, Baldock, Stephens
      Sterling, Kdb, Pepe, Grealish
      Aguero, Aubameyang, Nkietah

      Pulisic as a sgw player punt over Grealish is tempting too.

      Looks good, particularly If Nketiah gets decent playing time.

      I'd maybe just consider Lascelles over Stephens.

    Virtual FPL

    Pope
    TAA / Alonso / Laporte
    Salah / Sané / Fernandes / Neto
    Vardy / Pukki / Jota

    Button // Ward / Targett / Hayden

    Fairly decent lineup this week. DCL is tempting, but I don't love the fixtures afterwards (have WC + FH remaining though.)

    Pope & Neto have been relatively poor of late, but the potential is still there with Neto. Pope has some tough fixtures now.

    Martial is outscoring Fernandes currently.

    A) Pope/Neto > Guaita/Cantwell
    B) Pope/Fernandes > Guaita/Martial

    Guaita is mostly a pick due to fixtures, but Henderson has some okay ones till the end of the season too - as of next week.

    1. Hazz

      Oops. Totally forgot Pope doesn't have City until next week.

      What to do with Neto then? 😆

      I would play and carry transfer. No one around Neto’s price worth getting in.

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

        I have 2 FTs. Already carried it (by accident) last week.

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

      Pukki/Neto > Ayew/Barnes (or Perez)?

      Anyone run some Leicester friendlies?

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Like Barnes over Pukki and Neto so yes and Ayew decent fixtures. Only caveat is you don’t then have great rotation for Ayew so would play most games

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

          Thanks Dunas. I think I'll go with Traore for now. Still like the short-term Wolves fixtures, and tbh it helps cover the lack of Jimenez - even though Jota is sort of doing that himself.

          Barnes & Perez are a bit inconsistent.

          Leave a bit of room to move on Pope next GW.

      Wildcarded in VFPL.

      Guaita, Heaton
      Alonso, TAA, Lascalles, Holgate, Egan
      Saka, Mount, Salah, KdB, Grealish
      Ayew, Jimenez, Vardy

    5. Nomar
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      DCL would have been a great pick this week.

  3. chaser123

    FH first 11....

    Leno
    Targett Stevens O'Connell Baldock
    Sterling Grealish Pepe KDB
    Aguero Auba

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years

      Very strong

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Any changes you would make? Any single GW players you'd play instead of any of these?

        1. Dr. Agabuse
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Also McGinn would be brilliant value if he gets two starts

          1. chaser123
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Probably better than a SHU defensive triple up? Or better than Targett perhaps?

        2. Dr. Agabuse
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Henderson in and McGinn for Stevens?

          1. chaser123
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Yeh I like that

    2. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      This is the best bet but maybe Reina over Leno

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Yeh potentially actually - will have a think on that one!

    3. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Definitely keep the sheff def trip up

    4. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Very close to what I'm currently on.

      Leno
      Stevens Baldock Egan
      Sterling KdB Grealish Pepe
      Aguero Auba Pukki

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Just going with Pukki for a bit of a gamble?

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Yeah, nothing to it really, just a punt, have a feeling Norwich will still have a real go at staying up and Southampton have the odd terrible performance in them. Could be Samatta or Jota instead.

    5. CONNERS

      Looks decent, not sure about Sterling though. His form was awful and he could potentially be benched in one of the games.

      As previously mentioned, I prefer to have at least 2 or 3 of the highly owned SGW players as an insurance policy in case City/Arsenal misfire.

      In your case I'd have Salah/TAA over Sterling/Pepe.

      Just personal preference.

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Yeh fair. Everton aren't a push over in a derby though? Sterling has a big potential upside is my thinking

      2. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 4 days ago

        My thinking on Sterling is that he was badly in need of a proper rest, he'd played a lot of minutes this season.

    6. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Agreed - If he can find some form and plays in both games he'll be a great pick.

  4. BDA Shadow
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    What's the deal now, I don't see anything in the transfer page on FPL about limits. Does everyone get a free WC now?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No deadline = no transfers. Until one appears, chill.

        Cheers

        I feel like this should be a giant banner on the front page.

          FPL for dummies.

  5. Dr. Agabuse

    Reina
    OConnel Stevens Baldock
    Grealish McGinn Pepe Sterling KDB
    Aguero Auba

    1. Dr. Agabuse

      2from Arsenal (the most explosive ones is enough)
      Can imagine a Pepe Explosion without fans.
      He just didnt like the pressure. Little boy

      1. El Presidente

        If he starts

    2. chaser123

      How many mins do you think McGinn will get?
