Recapping the best Man City players ahead of FPL restart

Manchester City players are the talk of the Fantasy Premier League community ahead of Double Gameweek 30+, with good reason.

They face Arsenal and Burnley in the opening round of Project Restart matches.

We are currently recapping every team in the Premier League as FPL prepares to resume later this month, using data from the period just before March’s coronavirus suspension.

While we appreciate that much has changed since then, it still serves to know who went into lockdown in the best form.

We continue that series with a full examination of the Manchester City squad, using Gameweeks 23 and 29 as our selected period as they missed out on Gameweek 28 due to the League Cup final.

    BB, FH and WC chips left.

    Plan is to BB GW 0 and WC31

    0.0 ITB

    Henderson - Leno
    TAA - Stevens - Baldock - Saiss - Lascelles
    KDB - Sterling - Grealish - McGinn - Saka
    Auba - Aguero - Samatta

    Thoughts on this squad ?
    Thanks guys!

      Looks decent as far as template BB teams go.

      I’m personally keeping Jimi up front and using Mahrez to spread funds rather than Sterling. Just don’t think he’s worth the extra cash given we have no clue how many mins he’ll play.

    2. Herman Toothrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Saka.

      Reverse OOP who may not play due to Tierney.

      Away at City too. Find the funds for Cantwell.

  2. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Been tinkering. Anything you’d improve here? (DGWers are *)

    BB30+ (WC31+)

    0itb
    Leno*, Reina*
    TAA, Stevens*, Baldock*, Doherty, Fernandez
    KDB*, Mahrez*, Grealish*, Cantwell, Fleck*
    Kun*, Auba*, Jimi

    The only thing I don’t like is Reina. Can’t see him doing much at all points-wise but I prefer having Fleck to a triple SHU defence. I like having the couple of SGWers in Fernandez and Cantwell.

    Thoughts appreciated!
    Cheers

      I went Ramsdale and also have Sarr over Fleck, but in mind regarding Mahrez/Sterling.. Frees up 3m

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Hey Warby mate. Thanks. I don’t think I want to reduce the number of DGWers anymore as it stands but I may change my mind!

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      That is a good team yeah.
      Try N see whether you can fit a Chelsea attacker in your team.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        I have an option to have Mount if I switch Doherty to Saiss:

        Leno*, Henderson*
        TAA, Stevens*, O’Connell*, Saiss, Fernandez
        KDB*, Mahrez*, Grealish*, Cantwell, Mount
        Kun*, Auba*, Jimi

        1. Warby84
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          I try taking Doherty out and the team looks wrong.. He is a keeper..

        2. Karhumies
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          If you are less invested in Doherty than in TAA and if you think that Mount will outscore Barnes, Traore and Sarr it seems like a good option.

        3. Karhumies
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          Reina to Henderson (which you failed to mention previously) is the proper reason to do this, though. GK + 2x wingback from Sheffield is the proper triple up. I'm saying this as a Fleck owner who is planning to FH him away for the DGW.

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 27 days ago

            Yeh I do think I like the balance of this option a lot more but I really would like to keep Doherty over Saiss but can’t see how

        4. Amey
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          I like this option bro

    3. Karhumies
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      How invested are you in TAA? Downgrading TAA and buying him back on WC would give you the upgrade funds if you want to tinker something else.

      Otherwise, 3x MCity mid/fwd + 2x Sheffield def + Auba and Leno + Grealish is legit and Doherty + Jimi is very nice. It's only Fernandez, Reina and your choice of Cantwell/Fleck I might tamper with. For example, picking a Chelsea mid vs Villa or Leicester mid vs Watford has points potential or you could go for a Wolves triple up vs West Ham.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        I have a Mount option. See comment to Amey above! Cheers for the reply!

    Anyone doing Jesus over Aguero???

    1. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Nah. Both gambles and both likely to start DG week each.

      1. Mufc202020
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 27 days ago

        So to save money you aren’t thinking Jesus and invest elsewhere?

        1. Exeterslowly
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          No but I have two man city midfielders instead. I’ve gone with Aguero because both games are at home and he usually plays home matches so more chance of him starting both games but this is a risky tactic for me

          1. Salarrivederci
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 27 days ago

            Yeah - the crowd will demand Agüero on the field, when cheering and singing 😉

            1. Exeterslowly
              • 5 Years
              8 months, 27 days ago

              Haha I never thought of that!

              1. Salarrivederci
                • 4 Years
                8 months, 27 days ago

                😀

  4. @fpl_phenom
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    OK so im goin 3 sheffield united defenders...

    who would you pick and why ?

    Im thinking of this back line ... or better to go with the wing backs or Henderson?....

    ----------Reina------------
    O'Conell Egan Basham

    1. Albert_Luque
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Stevens I think had better attacking stats pre lockdown, probably worth the extra

    2. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Wing backs and keeper for me but it depends how much you have in the bank as neither wing backs are exactly purring with attacking returns.

  5. kime67
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    bottomed. Fleck a good 5th mid? or am i wasting money?

    1. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Not sure. Sheff utd attacking stats aren’t great but he is one of the better ones in the team. I’d rather choose defenders and keeper all day long

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      What number on your bench he'll feature mostly??

      1. Exeterslowly
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        5th

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          If he's 3rd bench player, he's expensive for me.
          If he's 1st bench option, I'd go for Fleck yeah

  6. wonkeydonkey
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    Anyone leaning towards using FH and saving BB AND WC? I feel that the FH team is stronger due to the high value of Aguero, Auba, Ster, KDB. Also don't want to lose TAA (0.3m), Salah (0.3m), DCL (0.3m), Fernandes (0.1m).

    Would be really interested in hearing from other slow-widcarders

    1. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Yes I am because I had already tidied up My team during lockdown. The FH will help with DG week and will revert to my decent team I have next game week.

      1. wonkeydonkey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Have you got much value tied up in players then? And any plans as to when you want to use your WC and BB?

        1. Exeterslowly
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          I don’t have a WC left but I do have my BB and TC. I’ll wait and see how these games develop as they are coming thick and fast so I may need to use them for the wrong reasons!

    2. Easy Cheesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Same boat. I’ve half an eye on BB during GW31+ before my WC in gw32. However, my main reason is to WC from gw32 to get a little bit more info rather than a rushed gw31 move with limited info/ insights

    3. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      I'm considering it for same reasons, have value tied up in TAA, Salah and Jimenez mostly. Maybe WC is good to use to get rid of Liverpool players if/when they have won the league.

      1. wonkeydonkey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Handy to know I'm not the only one then! Also think that my bench will pretty much all be SGW players so would rather spread the money across my team for the later GWs (when I'll probably still need a decent bench)

        Who's in your GW38 team then?

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          Only problem is if we use free hit we can't use BB. My current team is

          McCarthy
          TAA Boly Lundstram
          Salah Mane Moura Mount
          Vardy Deeney Jimenez

          Ryan Cantwell Fernandez Holgate

    4. Karhumies
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      FH gives you the strongest DGW XI without blowing up your current team. GW34+ seems like a decent BB GW option. ManU, Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea, Everton, MCity all have favorable MUs so you want to field all of those players. Watford vs Norwich and Burnley vs West Ham means any bench fodder from those teams might get a surprise score. Only Arsenal vs Leicester and Sheffield vs Wolves are difficult games to estimate whether the teams are going for a 0-0 or 5-4 result.

    Oi oi,

    Can’t wait for FPL to return! Currently tweaking my BB team for 30+ (WC 31) whilst waiting for results of a corona test. Can I get an RMT and also thoughts and prayers?

    Pope-Reina
    TAA-Stevens-Egan-Saiss-Lascelles
    KDB-Sterling-Grealish-McGinn-Saka
    Aguero (c)-Auba-DCL

    1. asdf_1
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      I think there are better options than dcl

      1. Albert_Luque
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Possibly, but I have value tied up in him and think he could score against Liverpool.

        1. Salarrivederci
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          Southampton, Newcastle, Everton, Crystal Palace & Burnley are on the maddafreakin beach at the moment 😉

          1. Salarrivederci
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 27 days ago

            Liverpool, City & Norwich will join them soon enough

    Any feedback on this bb? Wc 31
    Mccarthy, henderson
    Targett, saiss, egan, ward, basham
    Mount, salah, kdb, grealish, saka
    Auba, aguero, jiminez
    Feedback appreciated.

    1. FF Dirtbag
      • 9 Years

      Ward? And could make. Mccarthy reina.

      1. asdf_1
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Ward is nailed and has an easy fixture against bourn.
        As for reina, i would not want 2 villa defenders.
        Cheers though

  9. Herman Toothrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Out of sheer bordem I had a peak at the avfc sub reddit.

    A number of fans seems to think Reina may not be #1 and Nyland is their preferred keeper at least.

    Any Villa fans on here?

    1. HamezMace
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      The Villa guy on here with the Cruyff grav, I think it’s AVFC1982?
      He said he expected Reina to still be first choice.

    2. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Die hard fans often end up overthinking

      1. FF Dirtbag
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Don't think John mcclane ever over thought...

    3. Vertigo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      I remember Sheffield fans insisting Lundstram was a bench warmer.

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 27 days ago

        He is now

        1. Vertigo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          Successful season I'd say. Might start again too.

    4. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Not a Villa fan but Nyland almost single handedly was the reason they reached the league cup final. Deserves to start on merit but I doubt he will

    5. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Wouldn't be surprising. Reina's been absolutely terrible.

  10. Canadian Football
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    I am trying to wrap my head around the restart. is this the last possible DGW for the season ?

    1. asdf_1
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Yes. No more dgws

      1. Marmalade Forest
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        *No more planned DGWs

    2. NIKO.
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Sounds painful. Yeah looks like it’s gonna be the only DGW

    3. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      yes the last DGW

  11. jdp219
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    Using BB in gw30.

    Henderson, ----
    O'Connell, ----, Trent, Targett, Saiss
    ----, DeBruyne, Grealish, Fleck, Saka
    Auba, Aguero, ----

    A) Leno, Alonso, Son, Ayew
    B) Pope, Fernandez, Sterling, Ayew
    C) Ramsdale, Kelly, Salah, Ayew
    D) Saka also out > Ramsdale, Alonso, Cantwell, Barnes/Mount, Lacazette

  12. Silecro
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    Think I'm getting there...how is this for a BB team which would be wildcarded next gw?

    Leno
    Stevens/Baldock/Targett
    KDB/Mahrez/Grealish/Fleck/McGinn
    Auba/Aguero

    Bench: Guaita/Doherty/Trent/Jota

    Guaita/Doherty/Trent/Jota are the best SGW players i could fit in for now. Not keen on third Arsenal asset beyond Leno and Auba.

    Rate it please, and add if you would change someting. Cheers!

  13. Labile

    Jota or DCL?

    Already have Raúl.

    1. Exeterslowly

      Don’t you have a third option?

      1. Labile

        6.4 is my budget unfortunately

    What do you think to my BB?

    Henderson ederson
    Alonso Stevens Saiss Egan targett
    KDB Fernandes Grealish Mount Mcginn
    Aguero aubameyang Jimenez

    0.2 mill in the bank.

    1. Amey

      Henderson to Leno
      Targett to SHU defender
      ??

      1. FF Dirtbag
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        I could do indeed... Do you think Leno will do better then targett then?

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years

          For sure

    2. Herman Toothrot

      I like it.

      I also have Alonso. Praying he starts.

      1. FF Dirtbag
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Off the back of his last games you have to hope so!

  15. Daniel - WC Active
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    Will there be other double GW's till the end? What happened to the cups? Or this is the only one?

    1. HamezMace
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      No other DGWs.
      The FA cup later rounds will slot into the available midweek spots.
      CL won’t start again until August.

    2. Vertigo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Will be lucky to get the season finished at all. Just takes one squad to come down with the sniffles and the whole restart's Donald Ducked.

    GW30+ FREE HIT TEAM

    ----------Henderson-------------
    --Baldock Targett O'connell--
    Pepe Sterling KDB Grealish
    --Auba Aguero Lacazette----

    11DGW players,

    I think its decent ... £0.1M ITB so no wiggle room

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Not sure qhat youre thinking with auba and laca in the same team

      Ensuring bad returns for big price

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Pepe in there too whats that all about. This team gets a thumbs diwn from me

      2. @fpl_phenom

        thanks for the feedback.. I think Im hedging my bets ... what changes would you make ?

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 27 days ago

          I think id just take u down the template road.

          I dont personally like that team but if u fancy arsenal scoring a few go with ur gut thats what this game is about

        2. Easy Cheesy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 27 days ago

          I’m thinking something similar. My FH has kdb, mahrez, sterling and auba, laca, nletiah. Goal being to get 1.5 games from each of them.

            no Aguero is a big call on FH for sure....

        Youre better off looking at a liverpool player or two if youve left your selves with too much cash with a budget defence

      Poor team. Pepe and Lacazette bad options IMO. Bruno in 1 game better than Pepe in 2.

        3 goals and 4 assists between them in their last 3 games though ....

    On a BB then WC.
    A) Ozil & Samatta
    B) McGinn & Jimenez (and keep 0.3 of SV in Jimi for my WC)

    Thanks.

      B, at a push.

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Yeah I'm leaning towards this as beyond Leno & Auba I'm not sure any other Arsenal players are worth it. It also enables me to get an exact money WC squad of:

        McCarthy
        TAA Doherty Maguire
        Salah KDB Son Fernandes
        Rashford Jimenez DCL

        Martin Cantwell Lascelles 3.9

        1. Pulisic 4 President
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          I don't mind Ozil or Bellerin for other Arsenal shouts.

          At what price did you buy Jime? That matters. For me, I am keeping Jime because I bought for 7.1 so I can only sell for 7.6 and would lose .5 value immediately.

          1. Phil's Stamps
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            8 months, 27 days ago

            It's not so bad for me, got at 7.5 so I lose 0.3. But my feeling is that -if fit- McGinn will outscore Samatta and Jimi is more than capable of equalling (or even beating) Ozil in his game against West Ham.

            I going with Leno for save points, I can't don't expect any clean sheets so a double-up on the Arsenal defence is a no-go for me.

            1. Pulisic 4 President
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              8 months, 27 days ago

              I think Jimi for sure could outscore Ozil in just one game.

              Not so sure about McGinn though. Samatta likely plays 180', can't say the same for McGinn.

              Yeah, I don't mind Bellerin I mean if you have Hendo/Ederson as the goalies - but def no Ars double.

              Cheers mate.

              1. Phil's Stamps
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                8 months, 27 days ago

                Yeah, that's the danger with going McGinn over Samatta. He played 30 mins in the last friendly. I'm a Villa fan and we desperately need him back so hopefully Smith will risk him. The tasty WC team I've got set up is exact money so I think I may roll the dice on him.

                1. Pulisic 4 President
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years
                  8 months, 27 days ago

                  Yeah, I am for sure having 2 of 3 between Grealish, Samatta, or McGinn (+ Targett).

                  As a Norwich fan clinging by life support, I hope whatever Smith does fails 🙂

                  1. Phil's Stamps
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years
                    8 months, 27 days ago

                    Yeah Grealish is a given, and Targett a decent enabler at 4.4. I think they will be the most popular duo.

                    I hope if the worst happens you (we ?) bounce straight back up.

                  What chance of attacking returns from Luiz over the double?

                  1. Phil's Stamps
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years
                    8 months, 27 days ago

                    If I wasn't going with Leno, he'd be my second Arsenal player after Auba as a differential. He's worth a punt but I don't expect much.

                    1. GreennRed
                      • 9 Years
                      8 months, 27 days ago

                      Apologies, Douglas Luiz, Villa mid. Fodder price, minimal attacking returns but might punt cos Villa not Laden with good attackersm

                      1. Phil's Stamps
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 10 Years
                        8 months, 27 days ago

                        There's always a chance, I think the likelihood of a return from Targett or Luiz during the double is the same (and reflected in their price). For me Fleck is the most sensible pick as 5th midfielder if you can stretch to him.

                        My BB is looking like this at the mo if I don't go for Ozil:

                        Leno* McCarthy
                        TAA Stevens* Egan* Targett* Fernandez
                        Sterling* KDB* Grealish* McGinn* Fleck*
                        Aguero* Auba* Jimenez

                        11 DGW players

                        • 9 Years
                        8 months, 27 days ago

                        Cheers. I don't have BB left. Just TC, FH and WC. Will prob TC Aguero. I hear you on Fleck but Blades are like the ultimate everyone chips in team. Whereas Grealish is Villa's top dog by a long way, maybe Henderson is Sheffield United's. No outstanding high FPL points attacker, defenders, mids, forwards all contribute assists and goals, none of them scoring high and mids and forwards rotate to stay fresh. Luiz might
                        be ideal for me in 30+, I won't expect much but he's an enabler. Can then bench him and fodder price, with Hanley, Martin GK before WC a few GWs in after seeing a few settled lineups and form.

                        8 months, 27 days ago

                        Oh yeah in that situation Luiz for the double and ongoing bench fodder is fine.

  21. Farke4sure
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    8 months, 27 days ago

    Current team:-

    Pope Krul
    W-B Dann A-A Lascelles Doherty
    Barnes Salah DB Son Fernandes
    C-L Rashford Jota 0.1m itb

    Had made use of the recent weekly transfers to shape the team for the final leg.
    Wasn't expecting this 'free transfers' malarkey, so with 1.5m TV at stake, can move to:-

    Henderson Leno
    Stevens Baldock A-A Lascelles Luiz
    Sterling DB Grealish McGinn Luiz
    Aguero Aub Pukki (not a bean itb) Bench Boost

    Will only be losing 0.8m TV, so will be able to wildcard back to the original team almost entirely.

    Three Villa midfielders doesn't feel right, but if they fluke a clean sheet it will possibly be a six point bonus.

    These DGW usually don't fail to disappoint, but we fall for it every time!

  22. Feed tha Sheep
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    Best option?

    A. BSilva
    B. DSilva
    C. Mahrez

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      C

    2. Marmalade Forest
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Mahrez has done much better this season than I thought he would.

      Realistically, if you want to do really well, you’ll rotate all three and nail the weeks they each score 15

      1. Feed tha Sheep

  23. ryacoo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    Going with 12 DGWs. For the 3 SGWs would you go:

    A) TAA, Cantwell, Jimi (0.6 saved in team value but less £ to spend on the rest)
    B) Aarons, Cantwell, Pukki (lose the TV but more £ to spend on the rest)

    1. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Using the BB30+, WC31+ strategy btw

    2. Vertigo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      I wouldn't be using the bench boost to treble up on Norwich, personally.

      1. ryacoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        I think it's tempting personally. All key players for their side, Pukki on pens, both he and Cantwell started strong earlier in the year. Norwich fighting for their lives in a winnable fixture

        1. Vertigo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          I've seen a lot of support for them, for sure. I think as DGW players go though I'd sooner invest in Wolves.

    3. Nightcrawler

    Not one mention of Mendy in this article.... ummm?

    1. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Yeah I thought about him myself but he might be too much of a risk with the DW

      1. Pulisic 4 President
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Yeah but it's a full 4 days off in between City's games... Wednesday, till Monday.

        1. Exeterslowly
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          It’s not that. I just don’t think pep trusts him. And if same is on the scene I don’t think he likes playing them together down the left. It’s a good differential though as not many teams will have him and if he is on the ball he can score quite heavily

          1. Pulisic 4 President
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            8 months, 27 days ago

            I don't think Sane will start in either game. If anything, Sane + someone will come on and Mendy will come off at that time.

            It is a risk though, for sure!

  25. TeddiPonza
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    How is this BB team?

    Leno Reina
    TAA Basham O’Connell Mings Lascelles
    Sterling KdB Grealish Cantwell Fleck
    Aguero Auba Jimenez

    Would want 3rd Arsenal player but not many worth it. Could maybe do Cantwell to Saka?

    Thanks

    1. Pulisic 4 President
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Could do Targett over Mings, no? Any reason for Mings?

      I think Cantwell v Saka is pretty mute.

      I keep trying to get Aguero, Auba, Sterling, KdB, but it just isn't quite fitting in my squad. Also may be nice to have 1 city defender (Ederson or Mendy, Mendy as my differential because I think he will play both games, could sub off in 60-65' min for an early CS, and provide attacking returns.)

      1. Exeterslowly
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Yeah I have those four as my FH. Thought about mendy but went for another sheff Utd instead. If you can afford him try Laporte he is bound to be nailed on and has good precious DG points

  26. FPL Diet

    How's this looking for a BB in 30+ ahead of a Wildcard in 31+ ??? Please advise... 

    Hendo Krul 
    O'Connell D.Luiz Belerin PVA Doherty 
    KDB Mahrez Grealish McGinn Fleck 
    Auba Aguero Samatta 

    All input is gratefully received 

    1. Silecro
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Maybe revise Samatta PVA and Bellerin pick? I am on same situation as you and i think i will field this team:

      Leno
      Stevens/Baldock/Targett
      KDB/Mahrez/Grealish/Fleck/McGinn
      Auba/Aguero

      Bench: Guaita/Doherty/Trent/Jota

      Trying to have best SGW players possible. and "nailed" DGW ones, even though Mahrez hardly falls under that category

    2. Pulisic 4 President
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Why not double up DGW goalies?

      Why double up Arsenal D?

      Why PVA?

      On board with the rest mate! Cheers.

    BB + WC 31 players, how much double gameweek players you have and who are your SGW players?

    DGW: 11
    SGW: Guaita, Jota, Trent, Doherty

  30. fcsaltyballs
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    After giving it some further thought I'm not sure Unlimited Transfers and BB for 30+ is the way to go (for me anyway), I did a slow wildcard so below is my current team (which looks good for 31+ if I was to FH this week).

    Current Squad 0.8itb

    Henderson Pope
    TAA AWB Saiss Lundstram Lascelles
    Salah KDB Fernandes Sarr Cantwell
    Jimenez Vardy DCL

    OPTION 1: FH as per the team below 0.0itb (or similar) and revert back to the current squad (with WC and BB intact)

    Henderson
    Baldock Egan Targett
    Sterling KDB Grealish Fernandes
    Aubameyang Aguero Jimenez

    OPTION 2: Unlimited Transfers to team below (or similar) and BB (WC in 31+ but wouldnt be able to get back previous team due to lost value)

    Henderson
    TAA Walker Baldock
    Sterling KDB Ozil Grealish
    Aubameyang Jimenez Samatta

    BB: Leno Egan Targett Saka

    In summary, which path should I take:

    Option 1: strong 11 (mostly DGWers) for a FH30+, and back to current squad in 31+
    Option 2: full playing squad (mostly DGWers) and BB30+, then WC31+ but with a fair bit of lost value

    Thoughts appreciated, and hopefully this triggers alternative options to consider by others too!!

    Thanks

    1. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Option 1 personally as when your team reverts back you will not have those city players and they have some tough fixtures to come even if they are man city.

    2. Silecro
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Depends on how much value would you lost. I went with option 2 since my value lost is manageable, and playing FH in a unlimited transfers week somehow feels... Wrong. But thats just my case. If you lose 2.mil on TV then of course it can be other option

    3. Jason M
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      100% option 1. Very strong GW31+ team given your team reverts after FH.

      I'm going for FH in GW30+ purely to retain TV.

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        thanks, its good to get some confirmation... because using a FH when we have unlimited transfers seems silly on the face of it but when TV is considered it makes sense
