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.

    Hi guys! 

    What do you think about this BB team? (i havn't confirmed anything yet) I've left in De Bruyne and DCL from my original team. 

    I plan to Wildcard next GW. I realise I am risking it by not having TAA lol.

    Leno Henderson

    Basham Robertson Bednarek Targett Egan

    Sterling Barnes Saka De Bruyne Grealish

    Aguero Aubameyang DCL

    0.2 itb

      I’d go Pukki over DCL and not big on Bednarek but it’s a solid enough team.

      Much love for Pukki party!

    2. Blue&White85

      I’m on Pukki.

        Pukki crew checking in

      I think he knows it's already over, odds not in their favor

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Plays Sou and Eve next, both teams on the beach.

      2. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 22 days ago

        They are 2 wins from the first team out of the drop zone and have 2 great fixtures to start and 3 home games from 4 - far from over but if they lose the first 2 then that’s different

  6. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    Appreciate Saka is cheap/good enabler but I wouldn’t bank on him starting, highly likely that Tierney plays LB, Aubameyang LW and Lacazette/Nketiah ST

    1. Colonel Shoe 肝池
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      this is my fear, but at least hes cheap
      how id feel about a pepe failure tho

    2. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      I think Saka & Tierney will play a game each in my opinion. Wouldn’t go near either of them.

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      He played #10 ahead of Ozil in the last friendly.

      1. Vazza
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Surely you’re joking, right?

          1. I Member
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 22 days ago

            Nope.

            1. DickFranDyke
              • 11 Years
              8 months, 22 days ago

              No he didn't. Willock did.

              First half XI: Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Pablo Mari, Tierney; Willock, Ceballos, Saka; Pepe, Nketiah, Aubameyang

              Second half XI: Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, David Luiz, Tierney; Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi, Ozil; Aubameyang, Lacazette, Saka

              1. Nightcrawler
                • 1 Year
                8 months, 22 days ago

                What position is saka playibg here

              2. I Member
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                8 months, 22 days ago

                Either way he's not playing left back in either of those formations.

      2. JfA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Maybe with Tierney back and Saka on the left, AUB can return to CF?

        1. Vazza
            8 months, 22 days ago

            With Lacazette and Nketiah, there is too much competition for the CF position. So Auba would most likely play at LW.

      3. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        So this is the FH team im going with.

        Leno
        Egan Stevens Baldock
        KDB Sterling (c) Fernandes Grealish
        Abraham Auba Aguero

        Abraham and Fernandes excite me most from the single gameweeks. Its a lottery so just having fun with them 2.

        1. Aftermath
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Looks great

        2. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Copies and pastes.

        3. JfA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Some team value that mind, I couldn't put that together.

      4. 007 [RoboKlopp]
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Who is better for gw 30?
        A. McCarthy vs nor
        B. Reina vs SHU, CHE, will he play?
        Ta.

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          I'm not expecting McCarthy to keep a CS, so B

      5. Krupinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 22 days ago

        More tinkering but this may be the team for BB gw30+;

        Leno / Henderson
        TTA Egan Saiss Taylor Laporte
        KDB (c) Fleck Grealish McGinn Fernandes
        Auba Aguero Samatta

        11 DGW players

        Thoughts?

      6. Atletico Junior
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Thoughts on this BB 30 team?

        Leno (McCarthy)

        TAA - Doherty - Baldock - Taylor - Hanley

        KDB - Bruno - Grealish - Sarr - Hayden

        Auba - Vardy - Aguero

        0.1 itb

        1. 007 [RoboKlopp]
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Same GK's combo.
          Haven't decide between McCarthy or Reina. If there is news Reina will play maybe I prefer Reina.

        2. JfA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          I'd rethink Hayden, he's not nailed on and doesn't do much at all, might get you three points for a CS against Sheff, I'd go Douglas Luiz.

      7. fcsaltyballs
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Hows this FH team looking:

        Henderson
        TAA Baldock Lundstram (or O'Connell)
        Sterling KDB Grealish McGinn
        Aubameyang Aguero Jimenez

        Bench Fodder: Martin Guendouzi Simpson Killman

        Thoughts?

        Thanks

        1. JfA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Fodden way too risky.

      8. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Why do people prefer targett over mings?

        Isnt mings a danger from set pieces

        1. Bun Rab L3D2
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Attacking positioning and has a hand in some set pieces if I remember correctly.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Get Rid of 1:
        A) Aguero
        B) KDB
        C) Salah(Mane)
        D) Auba
        E) TAA

        1. 007 [RoboKlopp]
          • 4 Years

          C

            • 9 Years

            Why C over E?

        2. JBG
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          C

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          D

        4. Wally711
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          E

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          With the same dilemma, I've gone D.

          That's of course dependent on the fact that I don't have a wildcard to fall back on to get Salah/Mane back

        6. JfA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          When, after a nuclear war 😮

      10. Atletico Junior
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Vardy (bought at 8.9) or Rashford?

        1. JBG
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Rashford, he would have been ahead of Vardy on the top scorer list if not for the injury.

          1. Wally711
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 22 days ago

            Vardy more explosive and he love double digit hauls

        2. JfA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          I've got Martial and Fernandes and thinking of going Maguire so Vardy if I could afford him.

      11. Jay Jay Okocha
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Tentative BB team with a my WC intact

        Leno, Hendo
        Egan, Basham, Stephens, Lascelles, Targett
        Sterling, KDB, Grealish, Barnes, Cantwell
        Aguero, Aubameyang, Jimenez

        Any thoughts? Only losing 0.2 on shuffling TAA in and out

      12. Me Spurs
        • 3 Years

        If I use fh on g30+ will I have 2 transfers ready for g31+?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          nope

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          No

      13. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Oooo! Quite like this BB...

        Henderson - Reina
        TAA - Mendy - Lundstram - Stevens - Lascelles
        Grealish - Salah - KdB - Sterling - Fernandes
        Jimenez - Pukki - Nketiah

        1. JBG
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Not sure about Mendy, Nketiah and Pukki has been pretty bad for a while now. Reina not a sure starter either btw.

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            8 months, 22 days ago

            Thanks for commenting. Mendy a bit of a luxury, must admit. Norwich have 3 home games in 4 and I think the break will have done them good.

            I thought Reina was nailed on with Heaton injured?

            1. JBG
              • 2 Years
              8 months, 22 days ago

              Read on Villas forum that they rather want Steer or Nyland. And Reina looked kinda sluggish before the break.

              1. Twisted Saltergater
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                8 months, 22 days ago

                Thanks for the info! Will go check the Villa fans forum. Can’t believe Reina wouldn’t start given his pedigree - why else would he be there.

        2. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Reina + Mendy
          or
          Leno + 5m (Boly?)

          1. Bobby Digital
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 22 days ago

            Leno Targett

        8 months, 22 days ago

        Undecided on the best SHU double up in defence, already have Henderson, and waiting to see if any team leaks re Lundstram before deadline... but otherwise, best options out of:

        A. Baldock
        B. Stevens

        1. O’Connell
        2. Egan

        Thanks all

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Think general idea was stevens and O’Connell were the best pairing

            Why is that?

        Good day for WHU, they beat QPR 4-1 and Palace 2-1 in friendlies today.

        1. Bun Rab L3D2
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Haller scoring nicely in friendlies!

          1. HamezMace
            • 6 Years
            8 months, 22 days ago

            True, but Benteke also scored, so not sure how much I’ll read into that!

      16. Cak Juris
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        A. Egan - Hanley
        B. Targett - Lascelles
        C. Saiss - Kiko Femenia

        1. Wally711
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          A I guess but not great options

        2. Bun Rab L3D2
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          A is best of the worst.

        Better option for bb this gw - Cantwell or Saka?

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Both good options but struggling to see where Saka fits in (other then LB) if Aubameyang stays in that LW spot.

          1. HamezMace
            • 6 Years
            8 months, 22 days ago

            Did you see the Arsenal v Brentford friendly? Or at least the teams?

              sorry, went to walk the dogs. Yeah, I see that he's been playing but with Lacazette, Aubameyang, Martinelli, Nketiah, I'm not sure how he nails down the left wing or #10.

          My head has been turned by DGW, Saka. But its a gamble.

            I'm going with TAA. More ways to get returns.

              Kyle Walker s going to start most games, bar Edison. 5.6 is ok price to pay imo, even if he is not much more than cs.

            Apparently Lascelles didn't feature in Newcastle's friendly today. That's a bit of a worry.

                Could be a game changer..

                Bruce has been rotating a lot in the friendlies, so pretty much everyone has had a run out at some point.

              Is this team worth a bench boost?

              McCarthy
              TAA, Doherty, Alonso, Lundstram
              KDB, Salah, Grealish, Fernandes
              Jiménez, Auba

              Nyland, Lascelles, Nketiah, Guendouzi
              0.1 million in the bank, wildcard, free hit and bench boost chips

                8 months, 22 days ago

                Not unless you make a bunch of changes at least. Bench is horrific.

                1. fc_skrald

                  Thanks. I will save my chips then. And make the bench even worse to save some money

                Good team. Greenwood over Nketiah?

              Which fantastic four do you prefer for a BB30? Thanks :

              A - Baldock, Bellerin, Cantwell, Douglas Luiz

              B - E.Stevens, Targett, Saka, McGinn

              8 months, 22 days ago

              Which is your preferred option here folks?

              A) Henderson, Mahrez & Pépe
              Or
              B) Reina, Sterling and Pulisic

              1. JBG
                • 2 Years
                8 months, 22 days ago

                A

                • 8 Years

                A could work out amazing.

                8 months, 22 days ago

                Thanks. Looking at this FH

                Henderson
                Alonso, Baldock, Lundstram
                Kdb, Pépe, Mahrez, Grealish
                Aguero, Aubameyang, Abraham

                • 1 Year
                8 months, 22 days ago

                A and swap Pepe for Pulisic

            6. Nightcrawler
              • 1 Year
              8 months, 22 days ago

              Sirprised people think laporte will start both. Cant see it happening

              1. Bun Rab L3D2
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                8 months, 22 days ago

                If any city defender starts both it would be him. The rest are just a big gamble, may as well go premium.

                1. Nightcrawler
                  • 1 Year
                  8 months, 22 days ago

                  Going with ederson

                2. bench boost for every gamew…
                  • 3 Years
                  8 months, 22 days ago

                  if any of the four in backline starts twice it will be Walker.

              2. HamezMace
                • 6 Years
                8 months, 22 days ago

                Well he’s the best of three centre backs, so probably the most likely to start both the doubles.

                Not sure who else they’ll play? Fernandinho perhaps?

                1. Hairy Potter
                  • 5 Years
                  8 months, 22 days ago

                  Otamendi maybe comes in for the physical challenge of Burnley, but no guarantees of who does and doesn't play these games for Man City.
