Recapping the best Norwich players ahead of FPL restart

The Fantasy Premier League assets at Norwich are likely to be few and far between for the remainder of 2019/20 – but there is still plenty about their squad that FPL managers should be aware of.

We are currently recapping which players went into the coronavirus (COVID-19) suspension in the best form, using each club’s last six matches for the analysis.

We have also been assessing the impact of recently appointed new managers in the Premier League, so this series covers the other 15 sides, continuing with Norwich.

As we are sure you understand, a lot has changed since the climax of Gameweek 29, with Premier League players unable to fully train with their team-mates for nearly three months. 

However, it should still serve to know who was performing best 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.

    Best reliable choices for the run in? No pool gamble to spread funds ...

    Pope, Reina
    Doherty, Maguire, Saiss, Lascelles, O'Connell
    KDB, Son, Bruno, Grealish/Mount, Hayden
    Vardy, Auba, Jiminez

    BB this week and maybe WC next, thoughts?

    Reina Henderson
    Baldock Gomez OConnell Saiss Lascelles
    D Luiz KDB Sterling Grealish Ozil

    Just Ironing out the creases in the team now:

    A. Alonso and Saka
    B. Justin and SGW midfielder up to 6.6 (Mount?)

    With A I am just concerned about gametime. All other DGW spots filled

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Prefer b

    2. Kaz77
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Yep def b - both in A may be very limited pitch time

      Just here to acknowledge your amazing reference to The Secret of Monkey Island. Greatest game ever.

    FH
    A) McGinn
    B) Samatta

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      A

  5. _Ninja_

    Current team with 3.3m ITB, No WC, only BB / FH

    Pope McCarthy
    TAA Stevens Doherty Taylor Fernandez
    Salah KDB Bruno Barnes Saka
    Rashford Jiminez DCL

    Should i use FH this week and get something like

    Leno
    TAA Stevens Baldock Lundstrum
    Mane KDB Mahrez Grealish
    Kun Auba

    Cheers

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Salah a doubt?

      I’m in the same boat thinking BB

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        McCarthy Hendo
        TAA Lascelles O'connell Doherty Targett
        Son KDB Saka Grealish Fernandes
        Rashford Kun Jimenez

        Something like this

        1. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 17 days ago

          So the BB would be McCarthy, Saka, Targett, Lascelles? Not bad actually. I'm debating if FH will get me more points now than a later GW.

    2. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      FH

    3. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Your BB is going to be a problem imo. The other possibility is to BB now and FH later, perhaps last gw. Yet your current team looks so good, that FH might be better idea.

    Ozil had 1 goal and 1 assist in last 3 games before the break. Will he continue or will it be the old lazy Ozil that returns?

    1. Shatner's Bassoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      I don't like away-game Ozil personally. If Arsenal had 2 homes I'd consider strongly but reckon 7.3M is too steep. Would prefer Fleck/Cantwell/McGinn/Saka for less outlay.

      1. Firminoooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Does home/away play a part anymore?

        1. Shatner's Bassoon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 17 days ago

          Depends what you believe... I think it will be for some players so rather not take the risk. Some myth busting in this tweet

          Why not? Some guys will play better in front of a crowd some might actually play better without one as its less pressure

    BB GW30, WC GW31

    0.0m ITB

    Henderson - Leno
    TAA - Stevens - Baldock - Saiss - Lascelles
    KDB - Mahrez - Ozil - Grealish - McGinn
    Auba - Aguero - Samatta

    Thoughts guys ?
    Tnks!

    1. Kaz77
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      I urge not to get too carried away with double players - there are plenty of SGW players who could do much better. Not keen on Ozil, Samatta, and both Grealish and McGinn is too much for me.

    2. SouthCoastSaint
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Look at ozils minutes and points away from home this season and then get rid

    3. otisss
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 15 days ago

      Really like this mate. We get one DGW week all season, go for it I’d say. looks solid all round

  8. DantheManinaPan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 17 days ago

    Should I get Mane now or get Sterling for a week and gamble on the DGW?

    1. Kaz77
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Its not a brilliant double. If it means upsetting your team - Mane for me all day long. Sterling was too random and inconsistent this season compared to Mane.

    2. SouthCoastSaint
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      I’m 30k and think sterling is a better punt than mane to climb rankings. Plus will be wildcarding back to mane next week maybe

      Surely Everton put up a fight to stop Liverpool winning the title ...

  9. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    How attacking are Stevens and Baldock on the eye test?

  10. mcginnntonic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 17 days ago

    Nketiah or Martinelli?

    1. SouthCoastSaint
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Nketiah but neither

    2. Shatner's Bassoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Saka.

  11. Soto Ayam
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 17 days ago

    Which pairing would you prefer for dgw only:

    A) laporte and long or
    B) mendy\walker and ayew

    ?

    Many thanks

    1. FF Dirtbag
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Neither. If you have to A. But isn't there better choices than long?

      1. Soto Ayam
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Cheers. Not many other than long at that price. I keep tinkering around so much is sure to change

  12. DannyDrinkVodka
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 17 days ago

    FH

    A) Ozil Egan Targett
    B) McGinn Stevens Bellerin

  13. SouthCoastSaint
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 17 days ago

    Anyone else got Auba but really not convinced by Arsenal whatsoever?

    I’ve got Leno too and hoping for 6 points in 2 games...

    1. FF Dirtbag
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Auba and Leno here. Don't trust anyone else. Leno is just a means to an end as well!

    2. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Yes I bought him in GW29 (fail) so figure he is worth keeping for the DGW, but I am not confident of a haul

      1. SouthCoastSaint
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah I bought him for the fail... sold Vardy too which was a real gut punch!

        1. fish&chips
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 17 days ago

          Same here and I already kicked him out. I don't see arsenal or villa doing much to be honest so only gone with Leno and Grealish and used the funds saved from Auba to bring in some Chelsea and wolves players in

    3. Shatner's Bassoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      I don't think I can trust them beyond Leno / Saka.

      Had Auba(c) before the lockdown but that was largely due to West Ham at home being a plum fixture with the MCI bonus game ... didn't turn out that way of course but I'd do the same again. Don't think Brighton away is anywhere near as good.

      Feel like it's a choice between Auba and Sterling, and I prefer Sterling.

      So many good striker options for cheaper as well. Even SGWers like Pukki, Jota, Tammy.

    We've heard of stories of guys playing better in training as there's less pressure. So we might see better performances by some players who find it less pressure to play in an empty stadium

    1. SouthCoastSaint
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 17 days ago

      Not sure how you could prove the bit about training but yeah if you look at the bundesliga sample, the home advantage is really stripped away

      Think people are BB this week and WC next week if available. This is the only planned DGW but with potential postponements and such there may be more

    What happens if a player tests COVID19 positive? Do teammates have to quarantine? Will this postpone games going forward?

  20. Rover
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 16 days ago

    Which combination do you think is better for the DGW?

    1) Aubameyang + Mahrez
    2) Aguero + Pepe
