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.

    What happens if I make transfers now?

      You can’t

      I just tried it. When you click 'transfer', a message pops up saying the season is over. In short, nothing!

    Any idea when game opens?

      8 months, 24 days ago

      Seems like they are either waiting for the full TV fixture list or have a massive issue with the extension. If it's the later then it might not open for another day or two.

      The first 3 rounds of fixtures were only officially released on Friday afternoon, I doubt they work weekends. So Monday would be my guess unless they are waiting for the rest of the fixtures.

        I imagine weekends are usually the busiest times for fpl..

          It's when most games are played, but the website appears to be automated. I can't remember them ever launching the game, or given an update at the weekend.

        Fear of missing out. Confident the rest can carry.

    2. fc_skrald

      Neto could be a problem if you have no playing bench players.

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        He played in one of my two Wolves friendlirs though

            I ditched him for Traore after no show the GW before.

                10 off the bench for me after Otta no show.

      Vardy captain away to Arsenal. Interesting I'm going Mane home to Newcastle.

      Pope
      TTA, Alonso, Holgate
      Mane, KDB, Martial, Traore
      Vardy, Pukki, DCL

      I've also got Otta but after no show yesterday I'm unsure whether to play him or not.

      1. tets mcgee (BSC Small boys-…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        did u use ur friendlies on man city? this normally gives an idea of if he will start.

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Had hadn't because I don't trust them. For example Mane flopped in all three of my friendlies a couple of GW back them scored 19 points in the match ! I have now run them however and he only started once.

            know what u mean kdb scored a brace in a cpl of my friendlies so switched him to cap yesterday and then flopped yesterday. but does seem to give an idea of if some1 has been dropped or just rested.

  5. Chenku╰☆╮

    What if FPL starts day after. Then massive issue for every one given some want to plan FH some BB some WC. Omg

  6. YuvalFPL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    which combo is better for the double gameweek?

    1) Henderson, Bellerin, Doherty, Stevens, Fleck.
    2) Leno, Baldock, Egan, Stevens, Ozil.

    1. brianutd-why always we? 20

      1.

    2. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      1 with Baldock & Cantwell instead of Fleck and Bellerin

    Wouldn't it be nice if everyone just waited for fpl to announce whatever it announces whenever it does then discuss the decision as opposed to arguing about hypotheticals

    1. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Can't belive how inpatient people are . Even if it opens 2 days before, does it matter ,

      1. inactive
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        I mean if the entire site was down and you couldn't plan, tinker or view anything then I'd echo similar frustrations too but you can plan as much as you like. What difference does it make if you can't submit your team 10 days earlier than the deadline?

        1. Pumpy Pro
          • 11 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Exactly . People are free to contine bar pressing submit

    VFPL

    Anyone else experiencing issues with bench and players playing?
    I put Basham in and see him now on the bench and James starting 🙁
    Couple of days ago put Holgate first sub (this was only 6pts) and he was all of a sudden last.
    Simpsons 2 pts came on.

    But those 9pts ydas hurt more

    1. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Are you sure you saved after the bench was asjysted?

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Adjusted..

    2. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Remember to hit save team after you finish your bench order.

    Transfers still locked. Are they going to unlock them soon or what? Haven't seen anything official about this.

    That Harvey Barnes 19 pointer was the sweetest FPL moment of the season. 20% top 10k EO.

    1. Fantasy Gold
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      So happy I went Perez over him and played my WC

      1. RoysCallerAnne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        ouch. I got them both in for a hit the week before. nor, AV was too juicy to ignore. Perez would surely have double digited as well if only fraudy mini-clapper Brodgers had given him a game.

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      That match was a roller-coaster for me. I had started Perez with Barnes first on the bench.

      I remember seeing some early team news (albeit past the deadline) that Perez wasn't going to start.

      It was a nervy 90 minutes seeing those points roll in late-on, and up until the point the 3rd sub came on 😆

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        The Vardy (C) in the Southampton rout was probably my overall highlight though. Absolutely catapulted my rank, which was fairly atrocious at the time.

      2. RoysCallerAnne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Sweet as it gets!

    3. Bury94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I got rid of him my GW29 wildcard. What a horrible week that was

    4. Would Ed Woodward
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I got him in the week before and then WC'd him out for Arsenal assets, loved it of course.

    5. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Twas glorious.

  11. Champ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 24 days ago

    Anyone else get the feeling the DGW could be a let down?

    For example, I could see Mane/Salah+Vardy close or matching KDB+Aubameyang

    Plus, Jimenez/Doherty have a very nice fixture vs hammers and Ings could do well at Norwich

    Besides KDB and Aguero, there are not too many players that I would be TOO scared not owning... (Ok, i might need a sofa for Aubameyang against Brighton but I’ll survive...)

    Obviously, with the FH it’s easy to load up which is fine, but my point is that I’m not convinced that there isn’t more value to be had using the FH say, the week after, with Spurs, Leicester and Wolves all having 3 decent fixtures.

    Any thoughts yourself??

    1. The Gambler.
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I have £thousands at stake but play to

      A) enjoy the game
      B) maximise points

      Of course the likes of Salah and Mane could outscore City/Arsenal players but nothing beats the 2 for 1 possibilities so i’ll be free hitting!

      1. TwiggsJameson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        This.

    2. JBG
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I feel this FPL season as a whole has been a letdown.. Remember a lot of people(me including) here talking about it being way to random and not an interesting season in general.

      1. RoysCallerAnne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        People with crap ranks say those types of things every season. Anytime I've had a rubbish season it's been entirely my own fault, nothing to do with being too random or not an interesting season.

        1. JBG
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          I'm first in my money league and have a decent enough overall rank. Just not enjoyed this season, with all its randomness. I love it when there's a template team tbh, boring player I guess.

          1. Feanor
            • 11 Years
            8 months, 24 days ago

            I’m too 1K and I don’t think it’s been any more random than usual.

            1. JBG
              • 2 Years
              8 months, 24 days ago

              I don't know, premium players you would usually trust have been pretty poor this season.

        2. Pumpy Pro
          • 11 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Yer that is true and the ones with good ranks are the ones who go on about what a great season it is. I think it's normal human behaviour, why would anyone enjoy a season that has been nothing but pain.

          I will say that you can't put it all down to someones fault for having a bad season though mate. I know we have different views on this and that is fine but i feel you massivly underrate how much luck is involved in this game. You can't do nothing once the deadline goes and you can't control anything after that. If you had a couple of very bad seasons back to back where nothing you do goes right you may understand where a few are coming from x

          1. RoysCallerAnne
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            8 months, 24 days ago

            I actually enjoyed my worst season the most. Viewed it as the greatest FPL challenge of my life. I was like Jon Snow charging from the front. Instead of whitewalkers there was bad luck instead. Bad luck coming at me from every angle. Bad luck trying to slay me. Bad luck trying to ride Ygritte. Then I realised it wasn't bad luck at all, it was whitewalkers. 😉

            1. Pumpy Pro
              • 11 Years
              8 months, 24 days ago

              😀

              Think having the ability to look at it like that is a very good trait to have and probably part of your success too

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Agree completely. I don't think I'm going to FH but even if I was I would still want Salah/Mane, TAA/Robbo and Jimenez in my team. I get the excitement around players with a double but just don't fancy the City mids who are only likely to start once and the Arsenal mids who simply aren't that good to outscore players like Salah, Mane and even Bruno Fernandes. TAA is also capable of double figures in any week and could easily beat any defender with a double.

    4. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I've got a great 11 for the following GW31. Don't want to mess up my team by trying to save a FH and then having to get them out.

    5. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Of course it *could* be a let down. In fact it’s probably fairly likely that it *will* be a let down (they often are)

      But that doesn’t mean you can’t charge head first into it, bollock naked, painted red from head to toe, screaming DEATH OR VICTORY at the top of your voice rocking treble sheffield Utd defence, Pepe Reina, ~40m of Man City attackers, Auba, Laca and Mesut Goddamn Ozil though

      It could be a let down

      But so could the rest of your life

      This is the YOLO-FPL zone Son, we’ll have no one of your caution nor common sense here thank you very much

        Exactly this. Live by the sword die by the sword. You've gotta speculate to accumulate. It's a game of 2 halves. Never look a gift horse in the mouth. She sells seashells by the seashore.

        A few years ago there came a dgw with two of the least interesting sides of that time, QPR and Villa while kun, kane, sanchez etc were banging goals for fun

        Dont know what the consensus was on here but most completely ignored the villa qpr players and understandably so.

        Turned out to be the most devestating dgw i can recall. Benteke austin phillip all with 20+ hauls. Absolute carnage. Got to buy the ticket

            Afternoon Maximus......I hope you are well. I have read most of your post and cant tell if you are fully committed to FH in GW39.....what will your team look like if you did.....??

              Hiya Corgzz - FHXI would be the above lads in a 3-4-3 minus Targett plus Grealish

              Bring on the pain 🙂

    Any changes would you make to this team

    Henderson McCarthy

    TAA Baldock Boly Lascelles Stephens

    KDB Grealish Salah Barnes Traore

    Aubameyang Ings DCL

    0.4 ITB

    FH, BB, TC still to play

    Any ideas would be appreciated

    1. Epic ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I'm FHing and getting at least 11 DGWers, but with that team I'd consider either going with what I've got or just using a standard transfer to punt on another DGW player, then possibly WC the week after to get a decent bench in order to get rid of BB the week after that. TC whenever, doesn't really matter.

    Are FPL software engineers having a difficult time with reprogramming the game to fix in the extended season? Thought it should have reopened by now.

      I think it's more to do with the fact the Premier League have only published the details of the fixtures of the first 3 Gameweeks. FPL can not resume until we have all the fixtures. Instead of the FPL those who are getting impatient should be emailing the PL in my view.

    V-fpl question
    I need to replace Saiss and have some cash in bank. Would you bring in from
    A Boly
    B Gomez ( double up with TAA)
    C Digne (as Everton good fixture run)

    Rest of defence
    TAA James Bednarek Mariappa

    Afternoon all,

    Hope you are all keeping safe and well.

    Could you cast your eyes over this FH team for 39?

    Leno

    Egan
    TAA
    Alonso

    KDB
    Sterling
    Cantwell
    Grealish

    Jimenez
    Auba
    Kun

    Fodder bench.

    Thanks

      Not sure why Alonso and Cantwell are in there. You need at least one likely playing sub

        • 3 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Thanks for feedback

        Cantwell is cheap and Norwich attack

        Alonso is in on a hunch

        1. Wild Rover
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Cantwell has blanked last 8 games and isn't certain to start. Saka or Fleck will likely get you 4 or 5 points min

      2. TwiggsJameson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        I'd expect Cantwell to play most games. But I'd go Fleck if your budget can stretch to it.

    Free Hit (FH) for GW39:

    Leno
    TAA, Steven, O'Connel, Baldock
    KDB, Sterling, Pepe, Grealish
    Aubameyang, Aguero,

    SUB: Button, Targett, Douglaz Luiz, Greenwood

    Any comment?

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Benching Targett??

      1. borispkpk
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        I am not sure too. becoz is the best Def in fpl. What do you think?

    2. chaser123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Targett double better than Trent single?

    3. Wild Rover
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I wouldn't play 4 defs

      1. borispkpk
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Who are you recommend to drop and add?

    4. scubasmithy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I'm going free hit with

      Ederson
      2 x sheff utd, TAA
      KDB, Salah, Grealish, Fernandes
      Aguero, Aubamayang

      Last spot probably either Nkeita as 11th man for a gamble and Luiz from Villa as my only playing sub.

      1. borispkpk
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        i am also thinking about will TAA + Salah + Fernandes (single game) better than Sterling + Pepe + 1 more Sheff Def (two games).

  19. Jon Walter's Hatty
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 24 days ago

    So Nketiah hatty eh? Looks like he loves a run out off the bench then as part of the 5 sub crew...

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Players who usually do well in pre season/training games could be gold.

      No fan pressure on the pitch shd favor these footballers. A psychological thing

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Nketiah at 4.4 might be the ideal guy to put in for the double. I'm thinking of a WC and if he does not come off and oust Lacazette he will be the 8th guy in a 3-5-2 afterwards.

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Didnt know he was that cheap. An arsenal spot not even precious enough to worry about 3 spots either.

          Might fit him in if i wc now

    2. Differential (c)
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Looks good. Already have three Arsenal. If I didn't I'd probably be on him.

  20. Differential (c)

    Hot take, calling it now. If Lampard insists on using Werner as a lone striker instead of in tandem with another, he is going to be useless. Just wait a game and check the formation before jumping in.

    Always wondered why Werner was utter s*** in Russia 2 years ago. Then I realized Low insisted on using him alone up top. He always plays with a partner in RBL, whether it be in the half spaces (playmaking area) or otherwise.

    1. Differential (c)
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Additionally he does play the no.10 position in their 4231, with Schick up top.

    2. Anshuman

    3. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Lampard seems to like to play his #10 to play up with the striker. I think he'd he'd get support.

      He could also fit in at LW with a more physical striker like Tammy through the centre. Can see him latching onto some far-post crosses from Ziyech on the opposite flank.

      Pulisic's muscle injuries are getting silly now, so he can stand in out wide when needed.

      But I'm sure he will be used in a variety of ways. His versatility was likely a part of his appeal.

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Wow, that 1st paragraph is a mess. I meant Mount plays high up, so Werner shouldn't be isolated. This heat map is a good example https://members.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/matches/1059972/

        Never mind Pep roulette, Lampard roulette is going to be just as big of a headache next season!

      3. Differential (c)
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        As long as Werner isn't isolated and treated as a typical "target man".
        Cheers, great stuff!

      Tend to keep my Chelsea ramblings to Twitter but just posted this, which might be of interest

      https://twitter.com/RotationFPL/status/1269648341010386947?s=19

      9 times out of 10 I wouldn't want him as my lone forward, but I can see situations where it'd work - as long as he's not treated like a target man and can attack a high defensive line.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        RLC would feature at all?

          I really hope so - love him and think he's really talented.

          Just picked it based on who I thought Frank would go for, though I think everyone will get time. Could actually see a fair bit of rotation, worryingly - hopefully a lot of it would be confined to cups though.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 24 days ago

            As a Palace fan I think he's class. Always the doubt though whether he'll put a season together.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        It would be potentially nice if James stayed cheap next season & nailed down the RB slot - kid looks set for greatness - in both FPL & IRL

    So if we will get a free transfer when the game starts (I guess most likely the normal free transfer will be added) I think I will take the chance with Lundstram.

    a. Aurier -> Lundstram
    b. Lascelles -> Lundstram

    McCarthy
    TAA, Doherty, Alonso, Aurier
    KDB, Salah, Grealish
    Ings, Jiménez, Auba

    Button, Lascelles, Hayden, Guendouzi

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      That's a tricky one because they have both got good fixtures after the blank. Have you considered Alonso to Buldock who's more likely to play both games in the DGW than Lundstram ?

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Thanks. I think I am too big a fan of Alonso to do that. Know both Alonso and Lundstram are risks but I think I should take the chances.

  22. bitm2007

    I've just noticed that the provisional dates for Manchester City's remaining fixtures are in the side bar. That all but confirms that the fixture order will remain as originally published, and if all goes to plan their will be no more DGW's after GW39.

    What's the ideal vFPL FH team this week?

    Took out Hendo for Guaita instead of Pope by mistake. Now tempted to FH instead.

    1. BNMC
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Triple Pool, Vardy, and at least one Wolf probably the essentials.

      As for one-week punts, Everton have a tasty fixture so you could even go with a Richarlison+DCL double-up.
      Zaha also worth considering.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Looking at this

        Guaita
        Taa Alonso PvA
        Mo Mane Traore Perez
        Vardy DCL Jota

        Could go Wilf over PvA. Good tip.

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          No Man City? They've got Watford.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 24 days ago

            True

            There are options if I go Sane over KDB, put Ayew up top and redistribute TAA into PvA and another. Will mull it over.

        2. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Very good. Digne (BOU) instead of PVA

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

  26. Coys96
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 24 days ago

    Who would you fill these spots with in a FH? (11.7m remaining)

    Henderson - 3.9

    Baldock - Stevens - Targett - ______ - 3.9

    KDB - Sterling - Pepe - Grealish - 4.2

    Aguero - Aubameyang - ______

    Can afford any defender!

    1. BNMC
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Doherty/Robbo (or if you have value in TAA) and Eddie.

      1. Coys96
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Could get Trent but only with 4.2.

        Between him, Abraham pukki and few others

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Trent for me

  27. Would Ed Woodward
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 24 days ago

    Put Pepe in on WC before lockdown, got rid during lockdown, now considering again on FH, this is gonna end well.

    Current team below having played wildcard just before The postponement. Thinking of getting in grealish for sarr, anything else?

    Krul
    Doherty / TAA / kiko femenia
    Sarr / salah / kdb / saka
    Auba / Aguero / Jimenez

    Button / McCarthy / tanganga / Taylor

    1. dunas_dog

      Sheffield United defender- Egan or Baldock if affordable. If not perhaps McGinn over Grealish as differential to afford ( so many will have Grealish)
