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.

    Or,
    Mcginn + Cantwell + aubameyang

      Targett is on the bench.

        Yeah that’s my problem....do I play him or risk Lundy?

          How many points do you think Targett gets? Probably concedes in both.

        Off Targett!

        B. But lose at least one SU defender. Villa will score against them.

        Henderson is out for GW31.

    Is sterling worth the extra cash over Mahrez? Will be for one gw only.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Depends on who you are downgrading.

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        20 days, 21 hours ago

        Will have to downgrade jiminez and Doherty > jota and Saiss.

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          20 days, 21 hours ago

          What score are you expecting between West Ham vs Wolves?

          1. Disturbed
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            20 days, 21 hours ago

            1-2

            1. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years
              20 days, 21 hours ago

              Could still be a big difference in those combos. Why are they so high on your watch list if only a GW?

              1. Disturbed
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                20 days, 20 hours ago

                Have some value tied up in both. Not much tho.

                1. TorresMagic™

                  20 days, 20 hours ago

                  Fair enough, thought it was a FH.

                  1. Disturbed
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 6 Years

                    Nah mate it’s BB. Cheers

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      20 days, 21 hours ago

      Not if they're nailed on.

  4. Canary_Kid
    • 3 Years
    20 days, 21 hours ago

    McCarthy
    Stevens Baldock Egan
    Sterling KDB Pepe Maddison Grealish
    Kun Auba
    fodders

    How's this FH looking?

    Considering Mount over Grealish as I think it'll be tough for Villa to do much vs. Sheff and Chelsea but the double is tempting. Thoughts?

    1. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 21 hours ago

      It looks good. The Maddison pick could be a decent differential with people either avoiding Leicester this week or jumping on Barnes instead because of his price.

      I was thinking of Barnes instead of Grealish but Grealish is guaranteed 180 minutes (if fit) and at least 4 points. Personally I think you should stick for now.

      1. Canary_Kid
        • 3 Years
        20 days, 18 hours ago

        Cheers mate, love Maddison as a player and think Leicester will do damage against Watford. Main playmaker in that team. Grealish vs single GW player who has a better fixture is the big question.

  5. masyuris
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Will everyone regret for not having Lundy?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      20 days, 21 hours ago

      Probably given how the season has gone.

    2. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 21 hours ago

      I never really considered him until the other day because I cant see him playing 180 minutes but his goal threat was the deciding factor especially if United can't keep a clean sheet.

  6. HurriKane
    • 7 Years
    20 days, 21 hours ago

    Which pair do you prefer? (max 10.8m)

    A) Leno Samatta

    B) Reina Deeney

    1. LE CHARO
      20 days, 20 hours ago

      A

    2. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 20 hours ago

      A

  7. stephen paul holtham
    • 7 Years
    20 days, 21 hours ago

    Reina
    Stevens Lundstram Baldock
    KDB sterling grealish Pépé
    Laca Aguero Aubameyang

    Martin ward Simpson king

    1. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 21 hours ago

      Nice team. Not sure on the Laca pick but why not eh.

      1. stephen paul holtham
        • 7 Years
        20 days, 20 hours ago

        Worth a punt if he plays and arsenal score good chance he’s involved

        1. Another Hoops
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          20 days, 20 hours ago

          I'm thinking he might do something at Brighton for you too. He's worth a punt mate but I do think someone like Jiminez has a good chance of out scoring him with just one fixture.

  8. Another Hoops
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    20 days, 21 hours ago

    Finally settled on the following unless the pressers change my mind. BB active;

    Henderson
    Boly - O'Connell - Lundy
    Fernandes - Grealish - KDB (c) - Mane
    Aguero - Jiminez - Pukki

    Leno - Lascelles - Soyuncu - Traore

    (No WC left 🙁 )

    1. LE CHARO
      20 days, 20 hours ago

      Very nice team, both for the double and the run-in

  9. Eriksen Maestro
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    20 days, 21 hours ago

    Is Pepe and Auba too much for DGW BB?

    1. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 20 hours ago

      Probably. Let's see the rest of your team but I imagine Pepe hurts your BB...

  10. LE CHARO
    20 days, 20 hours ago

    Building a team long term (no WC), and planning to BB in 30+.

    Hendo, Leno
    TAA, O'Connell, Saiss, Taylor, Lascelles
    Salah/Mané, KDB, Fernandes, Grealish, Barnes
    Kun, Jimenez, Nketiah

    Think I found a good balance between DGW players and SGW players to keep long term, but I have a dilemma with Taylor. He's got an awful fixture (City away) meaning I'm kinda bench boosting with 3 players. Thinking of doing Taylor > Lundy, but that would probably mean taking a -4 down the line to sort that triple SHU def. Is it worth it?

    1. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 20 hours ago

      Similar team above. Who would you downgrade to upgrade Taylor?

      1. LE CHARO
        20 days, 20 hours ago

        Money is not an issue, I have enough in the bank to directly do the switch. It's just an issue of keeping him for the double knowing he could end up with negative returns if things went really wrong, or selling him for Lundy and getting him back later.

        1. Another Hoops
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          20 days, 20 hours ago

          I think you should go for Lundy then pal especially for a BB. If Lundy scores he can probably repay the future -4 or is an easy switch to someone like Soyuncu, Taylor or Aurier in the future 🙂

          1. LE CHARO
            20 days, 20 hours ago

            Thanks for your input. Yeah, I'm leaning towards that, but I don't like the idea of committing to a triple SHU defence that will be of no use past the DGW. Henderson will already be an issue given his price, and getting Lundy would add another one.

            I see you have 3 SHU players too, do you have a plan for them afterwards?

            1. Another Hoops
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              20 days, 20 hours ago

              Plan is to probably;

              GW31 - Aguero to Vardy
              GW32 - Grealish to Martial
              GW 33 - Lundstrum to Maguire

              1. LE CHARO
                20 days, 17 hours ago

                Yeah I'm looking at something similar, with Rashford and Son instead of Vardy and Martial, but if I do get Lundstram I'll be outpriced. Guess there is no way around that hit.

    2. ManUnitedComeBack
      • 3 Years
      20 days, 19 hours ago

      I think it is worth it. You will probably sell Henderson for a 4.0 anyway to free funds and play Leno through to the season end.

      1. LE CHARO
        20 days, 17 hours ago

        Yeah, that's exactly why I'm not sure. I'm already committing a transfer down the line for Henderson, don't know if it's a good idea to commit another one for Lundstram.

  11. PepSala
    • 4 Years
    20 days, 20 hours ago

    Finally set on this BB team

    Leno Henderson
    TAA Doherty Egan Lascelles Holy
    KDB Mahrez Grealish Fleck Saka
    Aguero Auba Tammy

    Only question is KDB or Kun captain

    1. PepSala
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 20 hours ago

      Boly*

    2. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 20 hours ago

      One of the better Aguero Auba teams I've seen.

  12. akhilrajau
    • 1 Year
    20 days, 20 hours ago

    My BB team. planning to take wildcard on next gw

    Leno, Reina
    TAA, Egan, Lascelles, Lundstram, Baldock
    Grealish, Sterling, KDB, Saka, Cantwell
    Augero, Auba, Samatta

    please suggest any improvement, if any

  13. Greek Freak
    • 4 Years
    20 days, 20 hours ago

    How's this for a non-BB team?

    Ederson
    TAA - Stevens - Egan - Basham
    Sterling - KDB - Pepe - Grealish
    Auba - Jimenez
    Fodder x 4

    1. Greek Freak
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 20 hours ago

      If I did BB (which I'm not convinced by as I explained on the last page), Pepe would become Saka or Guendouzi and the bench players become Leno and three cheap ones.

  14. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    20 days, 20 hours ago

    Better option on BB? One gw only.

    A. Saka
    B. El Ghazi
    C. Mcginn

    Kdb Mahrez grealish fleck xxxx
    Auba Kun Jimmy

    1. JRO093
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      20 days, 19 hours ago

      Prob. McGinn..

  15. Mweene
    • 6 Years
    20 days, 20 hours ago

    On free hit:

    A. TAA & Fleck

    B. Sheff. United defender & Pepe

    1. zøphar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      20 days, 20 hours ago

      A. for me, TAA is well capable of huge scores on his day and I'm not sure how many minutes Pepe gets with the games so close

      1. Mweene
        • 6 Years
        20 days, 20 hours ago

        Any danger of TAA not getting to 60 mins?

        1. zøphar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          20 days, 20 hours ago

          I think he should be fine at least in the short term, till Liverpool clinch the title

    2. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 20 hours ago

      B

    3. jimski
      • 9 Years
      20 days, 17 hours ago

      A for me.

  16. Tube!!
    • 5 Years
    20 days, 20 hours ago

    Laca or Pepe on a FH?

    1. JRO093
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      20 days, 19 hours ago

      Pepe I think. Can't fit him in, myself.

  17. HUATSHOOTER
    • 3 Years
    20 days, 20 hours ago

    Is jota a good pick?

    1. zøphar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      20 days, 20 hours ago

      The main drawback of Jota vs Jimenez is that he tends to get substituted a lot, but there is a significant price difference and the other players in that price bracket are Pukki, DCL, Samatta etc so I do think he's a step above

  18. Dunk mee jesus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    20 days, 20 hours ago

    How's this team looking men

    Leno
    Taa, ake, baldock
    Son, mane, fleck, grealish, kdb
    Rashford, jimenez

    Bench, button, lascelles, dcl, boly

  19. KingRichud
    20 days, 20 hours ago

    Samata or McBurnie

    1. JRO093
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      20 days, 19 hours ago

      I wouldn't be on either, but clearly Samatta of the two

      1. zøphar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        20 days, 19 hours ago

        For security of starts and good GW31 fixture I'd say Samatta

  20. JRO093
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    20 days, 20 hours ago

    My FH team looks like this:

    Leno

    Stevens, Egan, Lundstram

    Sterling, KDB, Grealish

    Kun, Auba, Jimenez

    For my 11th starter, would you go A) Targett or B) Mason Mount? Or even C) McGinn?

    1. JRO093
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      20 days, 19 hours ago

      Could also do Mahrez and Pepe over Sterling and Mount... then play Pepe..

  21. HUATSHOOTER
    • 3 Years
    20 days, 19 hours ago

    Henderson
    Walker lund doherty
    Mane fernandes kdb barnes
    Abraham rash jota

    Subs: pope saka vvd aurier

    1. HUATSHOOTER
      • 3 Years
      20 days, 19 hours ago

      How u all think of this team?

    2. LLoris
      • 1 Year
      20 days, 19 hours ago

      Id try to get Jimi instead of Jota somehow

      1. HUATSHOOTER
        • 3 Years
        20 days, 19 hours ago

        I initially have jimenez but the price diff margin is huge... and jota seem to be able to perform too?

        1. LLoris
          • 1 Year
          20 days, 19 hours ago

          I guess but Jimenez you dont have to be scared of him ever playing limited mins

  22. ZTJ
    • 5 Years
    20 days, 19 hours ago

    For a bench boost...

    Leno (McCarthy)
    TAA Egan O’Connell (Walker) (Stephens)
    Mane Mahrez KDB Fleck Grealish
    Auba Abraham (Nketiah)

    Thoughts? 🙂

    1. ZTJ
      • 5 Years
      20 days, 19 hours ago

      Cahill for Stephens in fact

    2. LLoris
      • 1 Year
      20 days, 19 hours ago

      Not sure about Fleck

  23. fish&chips
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    20 days, 19 hours ago

    Chelsea fans, how likely are the following to start at villa?
    - Alonso
    - Mount
    - Pulisic

    1. zøphar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      20 days, 19 hours ago

      1. Alonso - Fairly likely imo , was on fire before the restart , I'd say 70-30 in his favour
      2. Mount - More certain of a start, maybe with RLC to sub on late
      3. Pulisic - very difficult to say , lot of competition on the wings with Pedro , Willian etc even with CHO injured

      If I was punting on one of those three I'd go Mount

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        20 days, 19 hours ago

        Thanks mate, was considering Alonso & Mount or Alonso & Pulisic

        I guess Alonso & Mount is the safest bet

  24. SH
    • 5 Years
    20 days, 19 hours ago

    How is this for a FH team?

    Henderson
    Alonso Lund Baldock
    KDB Mahrez Grealish Pepe
    Auba Aguero Rashford

  25. The Red Devil
    • 5 Years
    20 days, 19 hours ago

    Sterling or mane this DGW?
    Own kdb aguero ederson & TAA from pool and city
    Will have to change keeper if I get sterling

    1. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      20 days, 19 hours ago

      Have WC

      1. SH
        • 5 Years

        Sterling and Henderson

        1. The Red Devil
          • 5 Years

          Already got 3 Sheffield, Stevens, egan, fleck

          1. SH
            • 5 Years
            20 days, 18 hours ago

            Not too keen on Fleck. Leno+Reina is other option

            1. The Red Devil
              • 5 Years
              20 days, 18 hours ago

              Heard rumours that reina might not start, nyland might

  26. Vazza
    20 days, 18 hours ago

    Responses would be highly appreciated.

    On a FH - which combo is better -

    Current BB team
    Keep mane or get sterling? Getting sterling would really disturb the team balance, as I'll have to replace ederson & Fleck too
    Suggestions?

    Stevens TAA Egan Lascelles targett
    Mane kdb grealish Fleck cantwell/saka
    Ayew Aguero Aubameyang
