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.

    FH team

    Henderson
    TAA Stevens Lundstrum
    Grealish Mane KDB Mount
    Kun Auba Jimenez

    Debating getting Leno Fleck over Hendo Mount.

      Tough choice that. I think I’d go for the former, just.

      I'm looking at similar FH team with Mount, Jim, Salah and TAA

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Salah's fitness not a concern? I have Salah currrently but will prob go Mane.

          Yeah I'll leave it late, we might get word

    3. A Fat Spanish Waiter

      I would definitely do Leno Fleck over Hendo and Mount.

        Auba not essential. I doubt he scores against city meaning your hoping he does well against Brighton. I reckon he will get a single goal as the turn around is quick after game with city. I expect arteta to go all in on city. For his cost unless he gets 15 points plus that money could be reinvested better

    4. Homer21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yep, no probs, prefer Kun and can't have both

  3. Fishy

    Anyone using tc over bb in gw 30? Or is bb the way to go was just thinking will we know for certain predicted teams as it's a new start so managers might favour new players???

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

      Cant use TC when there is so much uncertainty about game time

      1. Fishy
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        But with bb will you use your while 15 players?

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

          Shd do if most are dgwers

          They wont get 180 mins but will still get more than sgwers

          1. Fishy
            • 11 Years
            8 months, 27 days ago

            Ok. Fair point

            1. Orynx
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              8 months, 27 days ago

              I think too many people going all in on dg week players. Players will be exhausted after their first game.

  4. Nightcrawler

    If we dont make any transfers at all, or use any chips, do the unlimited transfers get carried over to the next week?? Could be lile a 2nd wc

    1. _Ninja_

      No

    Repost
    So freehit and fill up with 12 gw players or ultimata transfer and use bb and have about 6-7 dgw players.?
    Have no wc left and my team before any moves looks like this

    Pope Burton

    TAA VvD Stephens Boly Lundstram

    Salah KDB Grealish Sarr Fernandez

    Rashford DCL Jimenez

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Would free hit with that side. Looks good to play as per normal GW31+ onwards.

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

      Don't just focus on a full 12 DGW set, there are SGW players like Pulisic or Alonso that might do a whole lot better, why put Pepe in just for the sake of it, he might end up with five points, Alonso, Doherty or Jiminez could get eleven!

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

      Free hit, you've got a really good team going forward

  6. swanseag55
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    At the moment I am. The rest of my team looks better and the Arsenal games being so close together puts me off.

  7. Fishy
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    Anyone wildcarding in gw 32 and using fh in 31?

  8. Fishy
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    I have 2nd wc available, fh, tc and bb. Was thinking
    Gw30 bb
    Gw31 fh
    Gw32 wc

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

      I’m saving FH38+.
      Load up on the teams who need a result, god knows what the teams with nothing to play for will be putting out on the last day

    2. A Fat Spanish Waiter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      I'm actually debating no chip at all in 30 (I don't have my TC). The free transfers we have now allows us to create a "de facto" free hit team for 30. WC in 31. BB in 37 and FH in 38.

      In your case, you could TC in 30. It's definitely not conventional, but worth a thought.

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

        I don’t see BB being effective outside of the DGW.
        The chances of getting all 15 players in your team out in a SGW are pretty slim now I’d say.

  9. Herman Toothrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Tempted to go Vardy over Auba

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

      If city go up a few goals early, Auba won’t play 90 imo. Worst case I can see auba 60 and Auba 90. Regardless of previous fixtures/ results/ form/ vardy I would prefer a fit Auba on penalties accross 150 minutes

    2. Dr.Oftaw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Noooo

      1. Dr.Oftaw
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Sorry meant for another post!!

        1. Orynx
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 27 days ago

          I think auba plays 90 against city and 60 against Brighton. Arsenal must beat city if they want a chance at Europa/ champs. There is also pride at stake for arteta. Brighton arteta will know they can beat with lesser players

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

            Crazy

    https://mobile.twitter.com/bdmarcus/status/1271537774252879872

    El Ghazi a better pick over Grealish??

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

      McGinn (not Grealish)!!!!

      1. JabariParkersEyelid
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 27 days ago

        It's a conversation for sure.

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

          Although it seems El Ghazi has been a substitute the last few games?!

          1. JabariParkersEyelid
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 27 days ago

            Yeah of course but mcginn hasn't played for nearly 6 months.

            Don't get me wrong I'm leaning towards mcginn, but it's a conversation.

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

      I wasn't going to go Grealish given my triple SU defence but every expert opinion I've read or listened to says Grealish is a no brainer, that's the only Villa palyer I'm going with. Nope sorry, I've got Luiz second on bench.

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

        No sorry, see my correction

        El Ghazi or McGinn??

        Grealish is essential I think purely due to ownership

    3. SouthCoastSaint
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Think it’s a case of over thinking. Grealish is a talisman. Easy pick

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

        No sorry, see my correction

        El Ghazi or McGinn??

        1. Epic ⚽ 墅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          El Ghazi is easily the better pick IF he gets the game time.

          1. Orynx
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 27 days ago

            I’m staying clear of all villa players. Anyone watching any current leagues like bundesliga will notice lower teams are getting smashed. I reckon Grealish gets at best a goal. They won’t score against Chelsea and I doubt against Sheffield

    one unnamed norwich city player has tested positive for covid 19, on the club website.

    thought i would share

    1. inactive
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Player will miss Friday's game

      Another positive test too, but club and player (or staff) unknown

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

      He was likely one of the null and void brigade, he was probably off licking handrails with Bobb

    3. SouthCoastSaint
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Pukki, cantwell, Aaron’s or Hanley to have an effect on FPL I think

  12. The Red Devil
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    Sterling or mane this DGW?
    Own kdb aguero ederson & TAA as pool and city cover
    (Sterling would mean getting a different keeper)

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

      Sterling, hasn't mane had training knock? I may have imagine that though

    2. SouthCoastSaint
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Chasing =sterling

      Leading/ high rank = mane

  13. JabariParkersEyelid

    My last a or b of the night.

    A.) Mcginn / Aguero
    B.) Sterling / Samatta

    Who scores more? This gameweek only...

    A) Mount, Mahrez, Aubameyang
    B) McGinn, Sterling, Rashford

      B

  15. Udo
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    Who would you rather? Who gets more points, and is the safer starter?
    A: Mahrez
    B: Laporte

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

      Laporte has 5 days so could be 60 60

      Mahrez seems to always deliver points regardless of minutes

      I’d say pretty even

  16. The Count of Monte Cristo
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    For those with Agüero and Aubameyang for GW30+, will you be ditching Aguero the following GW and keeping Auba as he has nice fixtures against Sou (A) & Nor (H) in the following 2 GW's?

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

      Likely, but 1st FH in GW 31.

    2. SouthCoastSaint
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      I’ll be ditching both!

    3. Epic ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Not sure. I'm WCing the week after and not even thinking about any other weeks other than the 1st GW back.

  17. IamthenextTeemuPukki
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    Unlimited transfers has left me making God knows how many different teams as options.....

    Will BB this week, and WC next week, and here are my two choices thus far:

    Please let me know - Team #1 or #2 for this GW:

    Team 1
    Leno/Henderson
    O'Connell/Luiz/Targett/Doherty/Tanganga
    Grealish/KDB/Cantwell/Fleck/Sterling
    Auba/Aguero/Samatta

    Team 2
    Leno/Ederson
    O'Connell/Egan/Basham/Targett/Doherty
    Grealish/KDB/Cantwell/Traore/Fernandes
    Auba/Aguero/Jimenez

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

      Not bad, but I personally wouldn't have Reina/ Martial nor Lund. Would change to Henderson, and find two replacements for the other two.

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

        I have money to swap lund to baldock if theres no good news about him starting.
        I dont like reina either but Henderson and leno together seems like too much money tied up going forward.

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

          True, thats why I would do the unpopular GK move after GW30+, as Henderson won't play vs ManUTD for a starter, plus your valid point!

          1. Blunder fc
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

    BBC reporting that the Norwich player who tested positive featured yesterday vs Spurs

    Be interesting to see Spurs covid results in the next round of testing

    1. HamezMace

      Thought exactly the same thing.

  20. fcsaltyballs
    • 5 Years

    Best option:

    1. Henderson McGinn (El Ghazi)
    2. Leno Fleck

    Thanks

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

    That Norwich case is annoying. I had Pukki and Cantwell penciled in for the BB. Back to the drawing board if any of them are positive or if this has repercussions for the rest of the team

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

      So many pukki party jokes if its him

    First draft of Free Hit team for this week:

    Henderson
    Stevens, Baldock, Targett

    Would you do transfers and use BB or would you FH?

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Use the transfers, keep FH.

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

      I'd FH, I think the balanced team route is too difficult, how can you get Aguero, AUB, KDB and Sterling in your team while looking at the next eight fixtures, you've got a decent team as it is, FH and go for it.

  24. Herman Toothrot

      A, can you do Leno Fleck?

        Have Leno already

      There are concerns Nyland might usurp Reina in the starting XI, and with Tierney and Kolasinac available Saka might not start either game. Is there a way to downgrade elsewhere and get Hendo + Fleck?

        Going in circles. This leaves 0itb so will likely roll with it. Not a fan of Saka but for the price I guess I can't moan.

        BB 30+ WC 31+

        Henderson
        Egan / Targett / O'Connel
        Sterling C / KDB VC / Saka / Grealish / Mount
        Kun / Auba

        Leno / Doherty / Jiminez / Alonso

    Which combination would you prefer in each case? I am leaning towards 1A and 2B:

    1A) Ederson + Egan
    1B) Henderson + Laporte

    2A) McGinn + Abraham
    2B) Grealish + Jota

    Captaining Laporte for a rank boost 🙂

      Pretty bonkers given that you could have Mahrez or sterling for a differential but good luck!

    Spurs said

    "The statement confirms that the Norwich player had no close contact with any Tottenham player as defined by the Government during the match in N17."

      Spurs must be seriously lacking if match fitness if they couldn’t get within 2m of a Norwich player!

        True that l

      So all we need now is the Norwich line up in that match

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Could be any subs

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

          True but the Norwich player didn't probably wasn't used in the match at all

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

        The match report suggesting it was a training game with 4x 45 minute sessions, so could be literally anyone.

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

          Weird that the Norwich player didn't have any contact with anyone on the Spurs team or at least so they say

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

          Apologies 4x 30minute sessions;

          ‘ In a game divided into four quarters of 30 minutes, Erik Lamela took the lead for Tottenham with a diving header, having been set up by Bergwijn. Kane also hit the crossbar early on and Serge Aurier also had a chance.’

      Still if I were a United player I wouldn’t like to got into Spurs’ penalty area for a corner lol

    Could be in a minority here but I am having both aguero and Jesus in my team for this double game week. Can see similar minutes for the pair and potential for a lot of goals.

      Nice differential

      You have Auba too?

        Yes will have auba too, will be wild carding after the game week.

      There is absolutely no way anyone should be captaining Sterling. He has "been due" since gw 1 for a reason . You have plenty of other options in your team

    Just wondering if I play the BB in GW30+, followed by the FH in GW31, do I have two free transfers or only the one?
