Pro Pundits - Tom

The Everton and Man City assets I’m considering for the FPL season run-in

One of the world’s best FPL managers, Tom Freeman (aka avfc82), discusses Everton, Manchester City and more in his regular column.


So, as I write this, we’re just two games into Gameweek 32+ and I sit 44,693rd overall in Fantasy Premier League (FPL), having banked 89 points in Gameweek 31+.

It feels like I’m back on track after a sluggish Free Hit in Gameweek 30+, which saw a 30k rank drop.

However, with a Wildcard and Bench Boost in hand, and this week’s captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) still to play, a ninth top 10k finish remains within reach.

Since the restart, I’ve been watching loads of football and individual players, so I thought I’d use this article to talk about two of my top targets, and why I’m looking to bring them in.

Looking ahead, one of the reasons I moved away from my initial plan to Wildcard in Gameweek 33+ and Bench Boost in Gameweek 34+ is that my team looks in pretty good shape right now. It feels like I’d be making changes for changes’ sake, which can be dangerous.

With one free transfer and £0.3m in the bank, here’s how I’m currently set up…

I’m still undecided on transfers but am considering moves for Foden or possibly Jesus.

I’ll likely make a late call on that one once I’ve watched all of this week’s games, along with captaincy.

Thanks for reading… until next time.


Tom Freeman – aka avfc82 – comes onto the team to make most of us feel wildly insecure about our overall rank history. A long-time Fantasy Football Scout user, he has finished inside the top 1,000 a staggering five times since 2009.

    Best Aubameyang replacement ? I am chasing in ML- in second place, 26 points behind leader who has neither. He has Salah and I might get rid to get in Foden and Pulsic over next 2 weeks

    Jesus or Kane

    1. Thescaff
      • 1 Year

      Is Auba dropping tonight??

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        No- just forward planning

        1. baps sniffer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Actually he might

          1. Thescaff
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 9 days ago

            -97.1 not sure how volatile it is though?

            1. baps sniffer

              • 2 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              Dropping almost like a stone. Some days ago when I last checked he was -55 and I thought that I don't need to worry. If he doesn't drop tonight, it will happen tomorrow.

          2. Freddiebell
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Doubt very much he'll drop tonight

            1. baps sniffer

              • 2 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              So do I, but in that case he will drop tomorrow. It doesn't help the case. I think I'll just get Nketiah now. That .2 swing might hurt my future plans too much.

    2. Rocky.007

      See how Kane looks this week.

  2. jason_ni

    1 month, 9 days ago

    Non pope owner.. the only solace I can take from tonight, is that ml leader who I am chasing down, played his FH, taking out Pope for foster, as well as bringing in PVA and Sarr.

    Looking for his punt on Auba(C) going the same route!

    1. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 8 Years

      Alright Jason mate...! 😎

  3. antis0cial
    • 4 Years

    Saiss to rise tonight? I really want to wait till after united match before making transfers but had planned on AWB and Traore to Saiss and Martial exact money

    1. Whiskerz
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Best hit that button then

      1. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        That will guarantee martial gets injured hah!

  4. 1912 F.A Cup Winners

    Origi to start against Villa possibility anyone??? 5.1 nice price to If you want a one week punt and switch to a 3-5-2

    1. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      It s these decisions that separate true grit FPL managers from the marshmallows.

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Absolutely right mate!! Haha

    2. Whiskerz
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I'm hoping so. He'll probably be part of my transfer plan this week

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Could be a shrewd move mate or massive disappointment haha

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I've been thinking about this too. He's the most likely one to start that game!

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Definitely a logical choice you’d think, I have no Pool attack and would require a hit this week so may be worth a role of the dice and move to 3-5-2 for next week

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Same situation

          1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Aubameyang may drop tonight and if I got Origi now it means I can do El Ghazi to Sterling with just the right money!! If he goes down then gotta hope So does Sterling to in the week, El Ghazi will probably go down too

    4. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I prefer Foden over him tbh.

    5. pablospicks
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      If I was punting on us it would be Naby all day. Origi has done nothing this year and Minamino has taken his minutes.

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Ah right, excellent information there mate thankyou, will give him some thought too!!

  5. PascalCygan
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    I went without Burnley defence in my WC team (having had Pope or Taylor in almost every draft) and felt quite satisfied when they were stuffed at City and the contract situation seemed to be unsettling them...

    Then an ML rival has Ben Mee in his team! and a couple of others have Pope... The game week is still young but this is hard to take!

    Thinking of selling Holgate or Lascelles to bring Taylor back in? See how the GW goes but this is how I’m set up for 33:

    2FT, 0.1ITB
    De Gea
    TAA Doherty Justin Lascelles
    Salah KdB Fernandes Son
    Rashford Jimenez

    Martin / Nketiah Holgate Guendouzi

    Cheers

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Don't chase points, you don't have Burnley defence okay, but don't burn transfers on 4th defenders to bring one in.

      You have a strong team, it's not over yet.

    2. D.Glynn
      • 1 Year

      I really like your team man..

    3. AD2110
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Exact same boat. My thinking is I might as well stick with players my rivals don’t have as it’s the only way you’ll beat them...

  6. FPL Virgin

    Is it worth avoiding Leicester players and their opponents given the local lockdown happening there?

    1. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
      • 11 Years

      What?

    2. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
      • 3 Years

      Just give 'em a 2 metre birthe.

    3. Boss Hogg
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I think there’s a decent chance that Saturday’s match will be postponed.

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Nah

        1. Big_Andy_GAWA
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Doubt it'll be cancelled, TBH. Can't really see it...

      2. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        With everyone involved in the game being tested twice a week, that's unlikely ... isn't it?

  7. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Pope you beauty

  8. Pep Roulette
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Have Bruno & Martial. No Spurs.

    Rashford or Kane?

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Rashford

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I would say Kane, but I'm going Rashford, Bruno and Son

  9. Boss Hogg
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    If he plays but doesn’t score in Liverpool’s remaining home fixtures, Bobby Firmino will have played up front in every home game for the Champions without scoring a single goal.

    Weird.

  10. Make America Greta Again
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Odds of Luiz starting vs Norwich? Have Taylor 7 points waiting on the bench.

    1. Boss Hogg
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Very high chance of being one is the 15 outfield players involved.

      1. Boss Hogg
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        *one of the

    2. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Would say he'll be given a few minutes run-out at the end of the game... 😉

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Good as Luiz damaged ankle in cup game and Arteta not sounding hopeful

    4. syke63
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Did go off injured in cup game and Sokratis back, so possible.

      1. Make America Greta Again
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Ta folks, hope he gets to rest the ankle.

  11. Phil's Stamps
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    2 FT, thinking of punting on Foden.

    A) Doherty + Guendouzi --> Aurier + Foden
    B) DCL + Guendouzi --> Nketiah + Foden

    In B, Nketiah would always be benched. I have Saiss too, if it helps.

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      No keen on losing Doherty or DCL so don’t like either to be honest

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Thanks. I'm leaning towards losing DCL as I just can't see many goals for Everton over the next 5 games. Just realized A would leave DCL stuck on the bench for the next few, which is a bit of a waste.

    Pope
    TAA Doherty AWB
    Salah Rich Son Bruno
    Rash Jimmy DCL
    (Fodder bench)

    2FT 0.0 ITB

    Any ideas? TIA.

    1. Garam MOSALAH
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      No, make one fodder change

    2. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I have a very, very similar side...Jota for Jimmy and Martial for your Bruno. And I have also 2 x FT's and like 0.2 mill. I.T.B. lol.
      I am doing Rich to Willian or Mount. 🙂

    3. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Downgrade DCL to Nketiah to get money to upgrade Richa?

    4. wilson007
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Thanks guys. I quite like DCL tbh but starting to think I don't need Rich as well. Would like Mahrez but requires a downgrade.

  13. Garam MOSALAH
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    2 FTs
    Vardy Traore OUT

    A) Ings/DCL Mahrez
    B) Jesus Mount

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      DCL Mahrez

    2. FPL_DON
      • 5 Years

      A, but wait

      1. Garam MOSALAH
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        DCL or Ings ?

      2. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Vardy has one or two nice upcoming fixtures. Though I get why you want rid. Perhaps look at giving him one or two more chances...?

        1. Garam MOSALAH
          • 6 Years

    3. michaelington
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Ings and Mahrez

  14. FPL_DON
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Non pope owners, you bringing him in?

    I stupidly bought into the no contract Burnley in disarray narrative on my WC. Tempted to just chuck him In and be done with it but can’t help but think Watford and Crystal Palace are utterly toothless in attack, although sheff utd are even worse!

    1. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I won't take -4 to get Wolves keeper out after two cs.

      1. FPL_DON
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        True, I have DDG so I’ll see what he can muster up tomorrow

  15. michaelington
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    What’s considered a respectable finish these days?

    1. Berbs
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I'm of the opinion that top 50k is the new top 10k given the amount of new players + open info from FPL Show, Twitter etc. There's so much more exposure to the game now, where casuals even know what they're doing because they're being spoonfed.

      1. I hate Moreno
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Also the variance and unpredictability of chips. If you don't nail em, you're struggling.

        1. Berbs
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Chips give failing teams a massive chance to leap the rank with an accidental wild punt.

          I prefer old school one wildcard a season. I suppose it's harder to keep the general public engaged though.

          1. I hate Moreno
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            I don't hate them (despite triple captaining Andy Carroll once and getting negative points on a dgw bench boost), but I feel they could use a refresh for next season.

      2. michaelington
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Feel like this year I’ve put more time in than any other year and I’m scraping top 50k at the moment. Had a few years off and it seems to really have upped in terms of numbers and quality.

      3. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        25-30K is the new top 10K

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      top 100. Game is getting more casual by the day

  16. IRBOX ⚽
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Ings is twice the striker Vardy is. If Salah doesn’t win the golden boot, Ings deserves it

    1. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Ings is a far better footballer. Is actually v.good with the ball at his feet and has many more attributes than Vardy, you're right...!

    2. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
      • 11 Years

      Short sighted view imo

    Patricio Button
    TAA Alonso Doherty Aurier Robinson
    Salah Martial Mane Son Pulisic
    Rashford Nketiah Connolly

    Start of Gameweek 33 I am considering the following, will be for -4

    Alisson*
    TAA Doherty Alonso
    Salah Mahrez* Son Pulisic Martial
    Rashford Ings*

    Button Aurier Nketiah Connolly

    Ings looking really good and reckon Alisson is heading for cleanie heaven.

    Government to announce new social distancing rules soon to allow for the wind variance.

    I've heard a rumour that if down wind of another person then you have to be 10.5 metres away with a mask bot 17.5 without. Experts still probing their modelling nodes to be sure.

      lads please help 🙁

      First two are downgrades, martial is an upgrade and last one is neutral. Think you're making your team worse

        Thanks for the reply! Auba was always going to go hes just too expensive and Rash must surely be better given his fixtures no??

      enough in the bank to do the martial and rashford transfer?

      1. sunnyh
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I already have AWB and Bruno unfortunately so have to get one of them out first

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I think OOP Martial is a better pick than Rashford and other striker like Jimenez, DCL or Ings. Keep Hendo and AWB

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 9 days ago

            and look into other striker like Jimenez*

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Salah, KDB, Trent

    2. sunnyh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Pope and Trent for me

    3. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Pope, TAA & Salah

    4. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      All are of equal importance

      Half a laugh cause I benched Taylor and captained Jimi.

    Evening,

    For those who have BB in their pockets, when do you plan on playing it and what teams you targeting?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I'm currently looking at GW34 but I might change my mind. I still have my WC

  26. Bobby
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    I've just looked at the team news on here and its saying son could be rotated? Dear god please say thats a very remote possibility!?

    1. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      10 milion and you cant captain. I am out for now, until Salah and KDB start not performing and being heavily rotated. I I prefer them and heavy defense instead of a bulky midfield trio.

  27. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Barnes to Foden? Yes or no? Foden will be part of a bench boost when i will think he will get minutes

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Prefer Declan Rice

      1. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Rice is coming too.

        Rice and Foden for Guendoozi and Barnes. Bam bam bam 😉

        Declan will score. Watch my words.

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          If you say so champ.

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I would.

      1. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Thanks lads

    3. sunnyh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      yeah i think so, as long as hes fifth mid for now, or first on bench

      1. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I will play him 1 week at least. Also a good differential

        1. sunnyh
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          fair play im looking to do the same down the road too

          Mind talking me off the ledge in post above?

          cheers!

    4. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Think foden is a great pick imo

    5. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yes- I am planning that move

    6. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      yes foden

  28. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    I have Martinelli (punted on him, injury news only came out after deadline :/ )

    Worth a straight switch to Nketiah - or leave on my bench? Will probably stay there as Nketiah doesn't have great fixtures anyway.

    1. sunnyh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      depends on if you ahve other things to manage in your team. If you ahve absolutely nothing to do then yeah go for it

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I agree with this

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Nothing particularly urgent, but would be a waste of a FT. If I save it, I get 2 for next GW.

        Would I want to move-on Martinez, etc.

        Martinez
        TAA / Doherty / Saiss
        Salah / KDB / Son / Fernandes / Martial
        Jimenez / DCL

        Button // Lascelles / K. Femenia / Martinelli

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Nothing urgent to change. Save ft to give you some flexibility for GW34

    2. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Well he won’t play and won’t get you any points.

      If you can handle that then leave him sure.

  29. Tonyawesome69

    My original plan was to WC33 BB34 but looking at my team maybe I should hold the WC.

    Should I use the ft on my bench instead?
    Williams to AWB or Traore to Foden? Cheers

    1ft 3.9itb
    Pope
    Saiss TAA Lascelles
    KDB Martial Salah Bruno
    Ings DCL Jimenez
    (Ryan Traore Stephens Williams)

    1. sunnyh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Williams to Aurier or AWB for me

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Thanks both were on my WC draft. Which would you prefer current team or WC draft below.

        WC draft:
        Pope Martinez
        TAA Doherty Saiss Aurier AWB
        Salah Martial KDB Mahrez Foden
        Rashford Jimenez Nketiah

        1. sunnyh

          1 month, 9 days ago

          Well definitely WC cause its a WC team isnt it. But do you want to use it now or save for one of the last teams? I think if you want to WC just do it as theres not many weeks left anyways. But you can put out a decent team with your current team if you just make 1 or 2 FTs

    Well, I guess that's that for Rhian Brewster. I appreciate that he's on loan but no mention of him in relation to next season and use of the next gen to strengthen? Am I misreading this?

      Read the Athletic if you have it - Special mention of how Klopp took the time out of his day off to watch Brewsters game for Swansea.

      Think you’re looking far too deeply into some offhand comments.
