Recapping the best Sheff Utd players ahead of FPL restart

Fantasy Premier League managers will have to be shrewd in their decision making when it comes to picking Sheffield United players for the remainder of the season.

Their Double Gameweek in the opening round has heightened interest in their assets but it can be difficult to work out which ones are the best to consider without looking at the underlying statistics.

We are continuing our series of refresher articles, highlighting the best players at each club in the period just before the coronavirus suspension.

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.

    The more I look at the fixture list, the more appealing I find a GW33+ WC.

    Get 3 good fixtures for Arsenal and AVL, ride out City vs Liverpool and maybe gauge if theyre rotating if title is won, get Wolves 3 excellent games, WC in time for ManUnited and Spurs' fixture turn. Also get a decent sample size to gauge rotation, form as well as how teams with nothing to play for are doing

      topic to think about...i'm planning for a WC for GW 31+ currently filling DGW players on free transfers

    Salah KDB Frenandes Grealish Fleck
    Rashford Jimenez Abraham

    ITB 0.4

    All nailed for BB?

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 8 hours ago

      VVD to Laporte might be a shrewd move

  5. JonSnow
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 8 hours ago

    I am on FH:
    A) Barnes v (Wat) or;
    B) Mount v (AVL)

    Have tammy and no Leicester currently, leaning towards Mount because of villas two fixtures.

    1. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 8 hours ago

      A

  6. Winston.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    25 days, 8 hours ago

    On FH...prefer A or B?

    A. Sterling + Saka/McGinn
    B. Mahrez + Pepe

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 8 hours ago

      A McGin

    2. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      A with McGinn by miles.

  7. Winston.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    25 days, 8 hours ago

    Best option of these for this GW?

    A. Abraham (343)
    B. Fernandes (352)
    C. Jimenez (343)

    With the news that a Norwich player has tested positive for Covid-19 does that put you off getting one at all, despite not knowing exactly who it is? It certainly makes me nervous and it's something I'm going to have to (potentially) contend with as the season plays out. Or are you just ignoring and hoping it's not someone you select? There must be some nervous Cantwell or Aarons owners out there?

    1. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 8 hours ago

      Makes me question getting Pukki in indeed. Had planned to do it now not so sure I will.

    2. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 8 hours ago

      I mean why would they keep it a secret? I'm expecting a statement within the next couple of days

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 8 hours ago

        Im not so sure. If they wanted to give the player’s name they would already have

      2. DeadStar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        25 days, 8 hours ago

        As I understand it so far they don't actually have to name the individuals. The only ones who have been revealed have been when the player themselves share it. This could be the case going forward week to week. Could put some doubt into transfer decisions.

        1. Pieterke30
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 7 hours ago

          Certainly will. Increases even more the importance of the luck factor in the game

    McCarthy & Gunn are Southampton # 1 & 2 right ??

    With No WC & trying to save some cash. I have decided to go IN with McCarthy & Gunn for rest of the season.

    1. DeadStar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 8 hours ago

      I understand the money reasons but I'm really not a fan of those two. I'd go Button on bench and Ryan over them or just someone better overall as first choice.

      1. mad_beer ✅
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 8 hours ago

        Brighton does have the better defence and they can't relax or the will get relegated.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          25 days, 8 hours ago

          😮
          Ryan Button ...
          Will cost the same too

          Hmmm ...

          Thanks Mate

        Thanks mate.
        I don't want myself to be forced into a GK transfer tbh.

        So ...

    2. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 8 hours ago

      I expect Soton to be one of the worst teams from now on. But hey, pure speculation so...

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 8 hours ago

        I have used all chips bar FH.
        So want to be sure about having a GK pair ...

        I am not sure about it atm though ...

  16. Vazza
    25 days, 7 hours ago

    Responses would be highly appreciated.

    On a FH - which combo is better

    1. Henderson*, Alonso, TAA, Abraham
    2. Henderson*, Alonso, Bruno, Abraham
    3. Henderson*, TAA, Martial, Abraham
    4. Leno*, Stevens*, McGinn*, Mane

    Is kyle walker nailed?

    1. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      Nope. Cancelo in the picture, though Walker is favoured. I certainly wouldn't say nailed, especially since his off-field disciplinary issues.

        Even if i signed him at 4m and he is worth 4.9m??

        1. ColinZeClown
          • 1 Year
          24 days, 20 hours ago

          Toughie in that case. I don’t think he starts this game tho.

    Will the Sterling be fired up or distracted due to the current political climate. Are there any good comparisons we can look to from the past?

      Doubts over sakas value. I see it’s good tho as it gives u Auba/ags.

    2. Villa Velour
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Get McGinn in for Cantwell then swap Targett out.

      1. Berbs
        • 9 Years
        23 days, 12 hours ago

        McGinn likely to start both?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          22 days, 21 hours ago

          Not sure, he may miss first 60mins of SHU game. He will feature in both though.
