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.

      Dont bench TAA or Jimenez for the likes of targett saka.

        Fair point!

      2. Emm7980

        Fair comment, blinded by the doubles I suppose.
        Thx

      Pretty good, just not sure if the Lord will be 1st choice?

        Yea could swap for egan or o connell but xferrerd him out before a haul before and just have a feeling...

    Best option as 2 single week players on FH

    A Mount Jiménez
    B Doherty Abraham

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

      B

    2. JJeyy
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      a

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

      easy B. Great combo. Think Abraham could do well vs Villa

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

        Cheers- how are your plans coming on? I am set on FH 30 + into BB 31+

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

          yeah following suit mate

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

          didn't finish my reply. Same as you BBing in 31 as something to look forward to after my rivals all BB this week. Can see definite value in some SGW players like Abraham over dross DGW players like Pepe

    4. Krispy Kreme
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      B

  4. JJeyy
    • 5 Years

    Pulisic worth the punt?

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

      Yes no, yes no, yes no, finally settled on yes but that might change before Wednesday 17;00

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

      Risky due to numbers of Chelsea mids. But I think worth a punt as big upside if pays off

    3. GertJan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      CHO not fit while Pedro and Willian are out of contract this summer.

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

        Doesn’t really answer the question

  5. Buck The Trent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 27 days ago

    Is it silly to pick Nyland over Reina? I need that 0.2 to get my preferred BB team.

    What do you think is Reina’s point ceiling ? (assuming he plays)

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

      I mean the bb makes you get points from both of your keepers so I doubt that 0.2 would make worth it to go from Reina's points to zero points from the second keeper

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

      If you're going for Nyland over Reina, you might as well get Button and gain an extra 0.4m?

      Depends who starts for Villa, though.

      You'd be dropping your BB from four chances of points > three chances of points.

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

    Would you rather go either
    A) Henderson or Leno with Reina
    Or
    B) Henderson or Leno with a 3.9 GK to free up funds

  7. Herman Toothrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I've left Kun and Auba on my bench. Just to mess with my ML rivals.

    I try with all my might and main

    A deesunt score, the best, to gain.
    But, no matter how hard I strive

I never actually arrive.
    Every week, I wonder more

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      I went with the latter

  11. FPLisBack
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Hey Everyone!

      How's this look everyone - AAA upfront! ( Still thinking Jimenez or Abraham )

      Henderson

      Doherty, Stevens, Egan, TAA
      KDB, Grealish, Barnes
      Auba, Aguero , Abraham

      Leno, Lascalles, Mount, Sarr

      1. thepuntmaster
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 27 days ago

        Looks strong

    • Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Thoughts on this for a BB side in 31+?

      Pope Leno
      Maguire TAA Doherty Fernandez Chilwell
      Barnes KDB Fernades Salah Alli
      DCL Jimi Jota

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

        could go Robbo and Grealish over Chilwell and Alli also

        1. Krispy Kreme
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 27 days ago

          Looks good with Grealish & Robo

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

        Not keen on Chilwell as most likely to be subject to rotation- Justin better option and I think nailed with Pereira our for rest of season- would that let you go Alli to Son?

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

          Good shout but would be 0.5 short. If I get Son would only have 4.2 left for a defender. Can't see anyone in that range

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

            Pity- only option really might be Williams- Shaw not going to be fit enough to play every United games - but risky on BB. Robertson might be best option. I am getting him in and BB will be same as you with Robbo Cantwell over Chilwell Alli. My team value not as good as yours

    • Roy Rovers
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Cracked it....I think!!

      FH Week 30+
      Leno
      Lundy / Stevens / Baldock
      KDB / Sterling / Pepe / Grealish / Mcginn
      Auba / Kun

      Button / Targett / Greenwood / Lascelles

      BB Week 31+
      Pope / Krul
      TAA / AWB / Doherty / Egan / Lascelles
      Martial / Salah / KDB / Fernandes / Cantwell
      Jimi / Jota / DCL

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

      Got the FH and BB left and was all set on FHing. But now I think I can gain a greater advantage by FHing in 31+.

      If I use the unlimited transfers instead here’s what the team looks like...is it enough?

      (I would have had Baldock, Samatta, Sterling(c) if I FH that is the only difference).

      Henderson
      TAA Doherty Stevens
      KdB Fernandes Richarlison Grealish Cantwell
      Aguero(C) Aubameyang

      McCarthy DCL Hanley Holgate

      FH 31 fixtures look great with Spurs, Wolves, Everton, Liverpool all having amazing fixtures.

    • Krispy Kreme
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 27 days ago

      Hi all which combo For my FH? I’ve narrowed it down to these.

      A) Reina, O’Connell, Salah, Sterling, Jimenez

      B) Henderson, TAA, Pépé, Sterling, Abraham

      C) Henderson, TAA, Salah, Mahrez, Abraham

      The rest of the team is:

      XXX
      Basham, Egan, XXX
      KDB, XXX, Grealish XXX
      Aguero, Aubameyang, XXX

          Of all my BB drafts, I like the look of this the best so far as a balance between template and differentials. So please deconstruct it and send me back to the chopping board:

          Ederson Leno
          TAA Doherty Lundstram Egan Lascelles
          Sterling (c) KdB Bruno Grealish Fleck
          Auba (vc) Jota Samatta

          FH team, anything I should change here??

          Henderson
          TAA Stevens Egan (or Lundstram)
          Sterling KDB Grealish McGinn
          Aubameyang Aguero Jimenez

            Looks good. Perhaps Henderson to Leno ( for save points) and McGinn to Fleck worth a thought

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

              Have you read my mind? Or have you seen my previous post asking best option out of:

              1. Henderson McGinn
              2. Leno Fleck

              Haha

          Kun Auba Jimenez

          The current thinking behind using unlimited transfers and BB this gw, then WC in 31 is pretty solid. For that that kept the WC this long that is.

          Have FH and BB left but not WC. Same strategy without WC? It will make GW 31 tricky but thinking yes..

          1. Rover
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            8 months, 27 days ago

            I would much rather BB30 and WC32/33. The extra 1-2 weeks' info will be very useful in making the small decisions like which United midfielder to get, which Spurs attacker to get, which budget players find form etc.

            I have made a BB draft that will allow me to field a strong team in GW31 with just two transfers. Alternatively I've read some here planning a BB30 FH31 WC32 strategy.

            1. Captain Knackered
              • 4 Years
              8 months, 27 days ago

              I’m thinking bench boost 30+
              Free Hit 31+ to load up with Leicester, Liverpool, wolves, spurs maybe
              Then wildcard 32+ with a bit more to go off

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

          Best option:

          1. Stevens & McGinn
          2. Saiss (or PVA) & Fleck

          Thanks

              I’d go 1

              Tho confused by that one being two defenders and a forward as opposed to others

                  The formation would be different with these options.

                Can you do 3 w/ Bruno instead of Martial

                  I still have BB, FH and WC. Having a difficult time deciding between:

                  A) Free hit this week then use WC and bench boost later on
                  B) Bench boost this week, WC 31+

                  What chip strategy would you use with this current team? Not a ton of changes I would make on WC. Have significant value tied up in TAA, Fernandes, DCL, KDB, Salah, Martial (Definitely want TAA, Fernandes, KDB long term - having a hard time ditching DCL as well).

                  Pope - McCarthy
                  TAA - Wan-Bissaka - O'Connel - Saiss - Lescelles
                  Salah - KDB - Fernandes - Martial - Cantwell
                  Auba - DCL - Jota

                    B for me

                    Very similar position to you. Currently planning B and keeping TAA, Bruno, DCL where I have most of my value tied up( see team below)

                    Losing 0.9 mio TV of which I would’ve lost 0.6 even if I free hit and WC in GW31+.

                      Thanks for the thoughts. TAA, Bruno and DCL are definitely who I would keep.

                  Any thoughts between these?

                  A) Saiss - Guendouzi - Salah
                  B) Otamendi - Sarr - Son

                  ... can’t quite brave going without Salah or Mané, anyone else feeling the same?

                    still have your wildcard?

                    if yes then go without one of them
                    if no then you should have one of them

                  Bb 30+

                  Leno, Reina
                  Lundstram, Egan, Stevens,Targett, TAA*
                  KDB(c), Grealish, Silva, Bruno*, Cantwell
                  Kun, Auba, DCL*

                  * are the players I would like to keep to preserve value

                  Cantwell can be Saka if he is nailed.

                    try to get abraham or jimmy
                    not sure about silva
                    otherwise is ok i think
