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.

    Any comments on my BB draft? (no wildcard left)

    Leno Henderson
    TAA Doherty Egan Lascelles Targett
    Salah KDB Bruno Grealish Fleck
    Auba Jota Pukki

      Same boat here, i think its really good. A Kun haul could punish you though since he will be in most FH/BB teams and will be (c) for most

      1. GuenDoozy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Ive got a very similar team but with Kun:
        Leno Reina
        TAA Saiss Egan Targett Lascelles
        Salah KDB Dilva Grealish Fleck
        Auba Kun Jota

        1. Jullepuu
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 25 days ago

          Yours looks great too. I would say that it's a bit more risky than mine but probably gets more points than mine in gw 30

          1. GuenDoozy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 25 days ago

            Agreed, need Kun because a 20+ point haul over the DGW would kill my rank. Ill probably ship him out to get Bruno/Son/whoever is on form when i have 2FTs in GW32+.

            1. Jullepuu
              • 1 Year
              8 months, 25 days ago

              Your team is definitely very tempting because it has the "big four" in it

              1. GuenDoozy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                8 months, 25 days ago

                Without sacrificing too much id say. Saiss, Dilva (out for bruno/son in 32) and Reina(for 30 and bench GK till the end of the season) are solid picks.

                1. Jullepuu
                  • 1 Year
                  8 months, 25 days ago

                  Agreed. Shame that I'm 1.6 short from your team and because of that my plan seems better for me

    2. FALSE PROFIT

      With BB I would personally look at your cheap benchers having a DGW.

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Hendo, Lascelles, Targett and
        Fleck doesn't seem bad to me

        1. FALSE PROFIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 25 days ago

          Not a case of bad buddy. Just thought an ideal time to have DGW's on the bench.

    3. Mondeo

      What do you reckon about Doherty? Have him in since pre-COVID but can't decide now if its too much $$$ at the back or not..

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Great fixtures and he might play rm. He is really attacking. If you are trying to get all the big guns in then it's probably too much

        1. Mondeo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 25 days ago

          Yeah thinking more for the rest of the season - I've got some decent cash in a TAA/Maguire/Doherty back line and wondering if I should break up the party or not...

          Its a shame the 'form' of a few months ago counts for nothing now!

          1. Jullepuu
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 25 days ago

            I would get rid of Maguire before Doherty but he is cheper of course.

    4. Karhumies
      • 8 Years

      Leno + Henderson ties up a lot of money on your GK bench unless you make a GK transfer. Then again, you need a playing second keeper for GW31+ if you choose to keep Henderson going forward. Egan/O'Connell + Reina would net you some extra funds over your Targett + Henderson combo, but it comes down to your GW32-38 GK rotation plan: are you planning to play or bench Henderson/Leno?

      DCL is an alternative to Pukki. Mahrez is a DGW punt option instead of Bruno, but needs a transfer to get rid of so Bruno seems better long term unless WC31 or FH30.

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 25 days ago

        I'm still toying around with the goalkeepers but that's a good suggestion for sure. I have a lot of faith in Pukki at the moment

  2. akhilrajau

    My BB Team. I am planning yo take wildcard afterwards.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        That's an interesting pick. Why Mahrez over Sterling?

    2. Coldplay

      ABF although I have D over F for now

    3. lilmessipran

  5. Irish Villan 1985

    Thoughts? Trying to balance DGW and long term as I don't have a WC left.

    McCarthy

    TTA, VVD, Engles, Saiss

    Salah, Pogba, KBD, Grealish

    Auba, Aguero

    Button, Long, Lascelles, McCarthy

    1. Coldplay
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      I'd personally have Stevens over VVD and upgrade Pogba to Bruno but looks good

      1. Irish Villan 1985
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Thanks Mate, did you read about Pogba being played in the 10, could be a game changer? Or is Bruno still a better option?

  6. Coldplay
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    A) Kun + Bruno
    B) Salah + Jimenez

    Still have WC left

    Best defender only for this gw( max 5.5, not city or Sheffield)

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      maybe a punt on Sideshow Bob?

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Chelsea or Leicester looks good for CS if looking outside DGW players.

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Schar or Evans

    4. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Bellerin

  10. Amey
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    I think i am going to follow my gut feeling and go without a pool attacker for next 3 GW's at least.
    Keeping hold of FH.
    Team's set up now ..
    How's she looking ?? 😉

    Leno
    Taa Eagan lascelles
    KDB Raz Bruno Grealish
    Auba© Vardy Jimenez
    3.9 Luiz Siass Taylor

    0.7m itb

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Raz Grealish will make way for Son Martial in subsequent GW's

    2. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Good team and good plan getting in Martial & Son!
      I'm also going without Liverpool attack but might hold Trent + Robbo

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Cheers buddy 😀
        IF Auba fails to impress, can take hit to get Mane for Pool's home game to Villa. But i am thinking about rotation now with Pool after the inevitable title victory.

        It's basically a choice between Auba and Mane then afterwards. Son & Tony looks great as they are talismans so less rotation prone as compared to Mane i guess.

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 25 days ago

          I'm considering Bruno, Martial, Pogba triple MUN mids for fun but the whole double pain might be too much to take if we flop!

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years

            Ha ha
            Not happening !!
            We'll end this season on a high. Let's see how Pogba Bruno looks playing together. Last chance saloon for Pogba i guess

    Morning

    Who would you have out of Aubameyang or Aguero if your other two strikers were

    Jimenez Ings

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Holmes

      For 1 week, Kun
      More than that, Aubameyang

      If you currently have a strong team for the remainder of the season + BB, freehit and wildcard all available, what is the best strategy going forward?

      A. Freehit this GW, and use the chips later
      (no team value losses)
      B. Use unlimited transfers and BB this GW, use wildcard next GW

      I’m starting to think that A is the best one, as BB (with Aston Villa etc players) doesn’t look that tempting...

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        B

      2. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        I'm leaning towards A, in the same situation. Don't want to sell my Liverpool players with high value for this week, so FH and all in on ManCity attack is my plan.

      3. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        You don't need to have AVL players though, many teams have decent fixtures in this round as well as in next few GWs. You can fill your bench with NEW/WAT/SOU/LEI/WOL players.

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 25 days ago

          I have a feeling wat-lei will be high scoring.

      4. Sharkytect
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        I would say A but then there's nit gonna be much opportunity to use BB, plus you want a squad of 15 starters to make the most of it, which you won't necessarily want for other weeks

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 25 days ago

          How do you know who are going to start this gameweek after a 3 month break? Some managers desicions will be made based on fitness test, and we have no clue about players fitness.

        Yeah
        No DGw planned yet. But any postponement could creat more DGWs

    • Cak Juris

      Rate my team (Bench Boost) - 8 DGW players

      Leno (DGW) - Henderson (DGW)
      Baldock (DGW) - Egan (DGW) - Targett (DGW) - TAA (eve) - Saiss (whu)
      KdB (DGW) - Grealish (DGW) - Salah (eve) - Barnes (wat) - Cantwell (SOU)
      Aubameyang (DGW) - Jimenez (whu) - Pukki (SOU)

      GW 31+: Baldock >> Justin
      GW 32+ : Grealish >> Brunooo

      Pondering a few options for BB.

      Here’s the latest idea:

      Leno Reina
      TAA Egan Basham Lascelles Target
      KDB Dilva Grealish Oezil Fleck
      Auba Kun Jimenez

      Had to sell Salah to do it. Worth it?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        BB with Dilva, Fleck and Targett...don’t like the idea.

        1. Dthinger
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 25 days ago

          Why?

    • The Overthinker
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      I have 5.3 , and need one striker.

      Atm I have gone with origi . Has a good record against Everton.

      1. Netley Lucas
        • 5 Years

        Ayew sure?

        1. The Overthinker
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 25 days ago

          I am not sure. It's just for one GW though. So won't mind any punts

      2. Mufc202020
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 25 days ago

        I’ve gone for Nkeitah.

        Started arsenals last 3 premier league games. Arteta seems to rate him more than Laca at the moment. And a little bonus he scored a hatrick the other day against Charlton!!

    • Aftermath
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      How's this for a BB team?

      Leno Henderson
      Taa Baldock Egan Doherty Targett
      Salah kdb grealish Luiz cantwell
      Auba Rashford Jimenez

      1. Karhumies
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        So your BB is Leno, Targett, Luiz and Cantwell? I guess you want 0-0 from the Villa-Sheffield match and a CS for Arsenal against Brighton.

    • bradplum
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Hi guys rating for my GW30+ BB team please? Will WC 31+

      Ederson Leno
      Stevens O’Connell Fernandes Targett TAA
      KDB Grealish Mcginn Pepe Fleck
      Auba Aguero Jimi

      Thanks

      1. Karhumies
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        So your BB is essentially Leno, Fernandez (Newcastle), Targett and Fleck? Seems legit. Saiss and Egan are solid alternatives to Fernandez though.

    • Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      if what left was only your BB and FH what would be your strategy?

      It's really annoying when the FPL stopped right after I used my 2nd WC

        Personally: FH now since it's DGW, ignore the FTs available, and BB later. GW34+ looks like a decent BB option to me.

      Is Lindelof nailed? Or Bailly will play some games?

        Baily will play some games for sure.
        Maguire/AWB or nothing for me.

          If you're looking to invest in United's defence, don't overlook De Gea. Good value there.

            There was a time when he was untouchable ...
            Now he's a shadow of his former self 🙁

            Plus about as nailed as you get.

      Heeelpppp!!
      Just went to activate my FH, do I have to make all my transfers before it will come in to play.

        Don't want to end up with a team full of Sheff Utd and Arsenal

          Once you activate it you can carry on doing transfers until the deadline. After it will go back to the team you had prior to doing any transfers

      Any help would be really appreciated guys

      I have BB & FH left. I’d like to BB this week as I’m not overly happy with my current team (it’s not terrible but there’s some changes I’d like to make) and then FH some other time.

      Here is current team

      Henderson
      TAA, Alonso, Stevens
      Salah, KDB, B.Fernandes, Richarlison
      Jiminez, Ings, Jota
      Button, Hayden, Lacelles, Stephens

      I’m looking at unlimited transferring and BB to...

      Leno
      TAA, Stevens, Saiss
      Salah, KDB, B.Fernandes, Grealish
      Aguero, Jiminez, Ayew
      Reina, Targett, Lacelles, Cantwell

      Leaving money in the bank to do Aguero & Grealish > Son & Rashford after DGW?

      Cheers

      Any thoughts about going Jesus instead of Aguero. Understand that aguero starts all the home games and not many away but why do you think that that is? Could be because he needs the fans backing. Can really imagine them starting a game each with aguero most probably be against Arsenal rather than Burnley.

      Thoughts welcomed

      No price change for GW 30* ?

      Correct me if Im wrong...

      If Pool beats Everton, they win the league in DGW30 if City loses one of their two games. Right? 4/6 for City and they mathematically cant win it in 30.
