Pro Pundits - Andy

Why Harry Kane is back on my FPL radar and which three United assets I favour

Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy looks at the post-restart performances of Aston Villa, Sheffield United, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United in his latest Pro Pundits piece.


The new normal isn’t all that different so far from a Fantasy Premier League perspective.

Danny Ings (£7.3m) is still in great goalscoring form, Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) has averaged 7.6 points per match in the opening three games, and Nick Pope (£5.0m) is making a mockery of anyone who brings in a different goalkeeper.

With that being said, I do want to explore whether there are any differences we can spot following the Gameweeks and matches we’ve seen since football restarted.

    What’s the situation at Chelsea with Abraham and Giroud do we expect them to be constantly rotated for the rest of the season?

      As a chelsea fan I did not expect to see Giroud starting ahead of Tammy in both PL games, wasn't sure if it was due to tammy not being in favour or carrying a knock. However giroud hasn't done much and believe tammy will be re instated as the main striker, when he came on in the 62nd minute against City we look more attacking and he held up play well.

        I have giroud in my fh team for 33. Too risky?

    1FT. Auba ->

    A. Rashford
    B. Kane

    Bruno my only Man U player.

    1. JJeyy
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      A

    2. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL

      1 month, 4 days ago

      Greenwood instead of Rash and use funds elsewhere. AWB seems a good investment

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Not so sure about Mason's minutes.

        1. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          With Dan James being pretty terrible yesterday and in the opportunities prior, and with Greenwood having taking his ... I'm hoping and suspect that Ole has no reason to switch him out

    3. Cheezeweasel
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Kane has more explosive potential imho

    Key questions for my 33+ WC, 34+ BB:

    1) Keep TAA, downgrade to VVD or spread the cash on other defensive options (Azpi, Aurier, 2nd Wolves, etc)?
    2) Which 2 United players to go with Bruno?
    3) Which 1-2 City players to go with KDB?

    1. Rasping Drive (BSC Small Bo…
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      1) Keep TAA
      2) AWB & Martial
      3) Mahrez

    2. Rasping Drive (BSC Small Bo…
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I am on a WC, too. Fortunately I don't have my BB to worry about. However, I am going round the houses somewhat with points 2 & 3 that you raised.

    3. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      1. Keep TAA. no brainer.
      2. Greenwood and AWB for me
      3. Mahrez/Foden

  4. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠

    1 month, 4 days ago

    Where to spend my FT ?

    2FT's, 0.3 in the bank

    Martinez
    TAA, AWB, Doherty
    Mane, KDB, Bruno, Son
    DCL, Jimenez, Rashford

    Sub: 3.9, Foden, Aurier, Lascelles

    1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Was thinking DCL and Rashford to Kane and Greenwood...

      1. tuvok
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Son and Rashford to Greenwood & Salah? Would be a formidable attack for this week at least

  5. Stormbringer22
      1 month, 4 days ago

      WC tinkering. How's this:

      Pope
      TAA • Doherty • Aurier • AWB
      Salah • KDB • Mahrez • Bruno
      Jimenez • Ings

      McCarthy • Lascelles • Cantwell • Nketiah
      £0.1itb

      Is that midfield too mainstream?

    • JJeyy
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      A) Rashford Foden
      B) Greenwood Son

      Best option?

      1. Stormbringer22
          1 month, 4 days ago

          A

        • momomaimai

        How many points did you get in June? 234 here.
        (You can go to some minileague and pick June instead of overall)

        3 captain fails in a row(Jimenez, Bruno, Aguero) but DDG and AWB on the positive side.

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Impressive to get that in spite of 3 captain fails! I'm on 233 and I had 2 successful captains before a Jimenez fail this week.

        2. Hot Toddy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Active gwk is part of June, but 251 so far.

        3. HashAttack
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Doesn't the rest of this week games get added to the June total

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year

            It does

          Interesting. 253 so far. Doing ok 🙂

      3. Azathoth
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        What do u think for this WC team

        Pope - 3.9
        TAA - VVD - AWB - Boly - Saiss
        Mo - KDB - Bruno - Son - 4.7
        Jimmy - Greenwood - Nketiah

        1.1m itb to use it to upgrade 3.9 gk and 4.7 mid for my BB.
        Can play 5-4-1 or 4-4-2 benching 1 Wolfie.

        Thanx.

        1. Rasping Drive (BSC Small Bo…
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Looks very strong, Son is a question mark based on current form but if he sparkles this GW, he deserves a place. I like most of the rest of the picks although I wouldn't go for VVD personally, nor double Wolves defence.

          Is there any reason why you don't spend the extra money you have itb now and play the BB next week? Or do you want to get more info before selecting?

          1. Azathoth
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Haven't decided yet who to get instead of the 3.9 and 4.7.
            VVD...just don't wanna sell him and if i do,don't know who to get.

      4. Disturbed
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Thoughts on this FH team for this gw?

        Ederson
        Taa vvd alonso aurier
        Salah kdb Bruno Mahrez martial
        Rashford

        Button nketiah Connolly Simpson

        1. Iceball
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Good if confident Mahrez plays. ManU defender instead of triple attack?

        2. tuvok
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Good picks. Surprised we’re not seeing more free hit teams for this week considering the fixtures for Liverpool & in form United

      5. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Paul Pogba double digit haul is coming vs Bournemouth but who owns him?

        1. GloryManUnited
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Nah, Rashy

      6. Strchld
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Really need Mane to outscore Salah tomorrow.

        OR 1100 and have lost my ML leading when rival picked Martial and I have Rashford.

        Also last week captain Bruno and this week Rashford didn't went well. Im gonna lose this season If its going this way.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Wow OR 1100 and not top of your mini league. That's some tough stuff.

      7. Jay Jay Okocha

        1 month, 4 days ago

        Bottomed...

        2 FT, 0 ITB

        Any ideas?

        Foster, 3.9
        TAA, Maguire, Saiss, Lascelles, 3.9
        KDB, Salah, Son, Bruno, Martial
        Jimenez, DCL, Connolly

        My plan was to bring in Mahrez, but I'm reluctant to part with any of my midfielders. Obviously Foster sucks, and I'll regret picking him over Pope for the rest of the season, but I don't see an alternative with 0 ITB.

        1. liverpool01
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Martial to Pulisic

        2. OleGGMU
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Stick and monitor performances before doing anything imo.
          Son to Mahrez or Richa for future reference and use funds to upgrade keeper to Pope/Hendo/Dubravka or DCL to Ings

      8. liverpool01
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Pope
        Doherty, Taa, Lascelles
        Son, Bruno, Kdb, Mane
        Nketiah, Rashford, Jimenez

        Mccarthy, Saiss, Holgate, Hayden

        2FT 0.0 ITB

        A)

        Rashford> Greenwood
        Nketiah> Ings

        B)
        Son> Pulisic/ Mahrez
        Lascelles> Awb

        1. momomaimai

        2. Jusagoras
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Just Nketiah -> Greenwood? Not sure I understand getting rid of Rashford at this point.

          1. liverpool01
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Nketiah to Greenwood and Rashford to Ings

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I think I’d go B. Plus, you will end up with some cash that can be used for an upgrade the following week.

        Chasing in my mini league 45 points behind, leader has used all his chips I still have free hit...was thinking of going 5 in midfield...my 2 transfers this week would give me Martinez/Nyland
        TAA/ Doherty/Aurier/Lascelles/Eagan
        Salah/KDB/Mahrez/Bruno/Martial
        Jiménez/Greenwood/Nketiah
        Do it Y or N???

        Pope, TAA, VVD, Aurier,
        Salah, KDB, Bruno, Martial, Mahrez
        Greenwood, Jesus

        Wouldn’t trust Kane to pour me a bowl of cereal.

        1. OleGGMU
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          But he can be trusted to bang them goals in when the tactics are built around his strengths as they were in seasons prior.

      13. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Is United Def essential(AWB) or should I triple up on their attack with Fernandes Martial Rashford ?
        *I think Greenwood won't constantly have great games like yesterday.
        **I'm on WC

        1. DandyDon
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I wouldn’t say essential as there are actually lots of teams keeping clean sheets at the minute

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

          same dilemma for me
          im going AWB + 2 attackers

        3. POLSKA GOLA
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I have the same dillema, not on WC dough. I’m actually considering going with tripple attack of Bruno, Martial and Rash and doubling up on Pool defence with TAA and Gomez to play 442. Lots of cheap defenders delivering clean sheets atm

      14. Pep bites Kun
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        What's the appetite for Spurs besides Aurier?

        A. Kane
        B. Son
        C. Other
        D. No Spurs attack

        1. FPL Pillars
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I only have B, see how they do later

          1. Pep bites Kun
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Yep SHU result should help. Good fixtures ahead for a performing Spurs attacker

        2. A Fat Spanish Waiter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          B or nothing

        3. POLSKA GOLA
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Have Son but may switch to Martial actually if he continues playing on the left wing and not cutting in

          1. Pep bites Kun
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Yep, don't like his position either. I would prefer Kane in the current setup if he begins to meet expectation. SHU tonight should answer the question. Looking forward to the game. It's all good after lock-down. What miserable period it is/was!

            Onwards & upwards! 🙂

        Any views on Holgate guys as an option?

        1. A Fat Spanish Waiter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          I own him, but he is only there for emergencies.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Great option. Great fixtures. Cheap. I think he's the best defender sub Saiss.

      19. DandyDon
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Pool and Chelsea fixtures look great next week but both with very tough turnarounds. I’d expect heavy rotation from these two teams before they play again. Utd for example have a much easier rest schedule and I will bringing in more players like that

      20. A Fat Spanish Waiter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Need some advice. Current team is:

          I guess I’d say A. It’s just not worth the hit at this point.

        United Fans...

        What are the chances Brandon Williams starts on Saturday? Should I take a -4 for Maguire to Bench Boost or roll the dice with Williams?

          Not high, but Shaw wasn’t great to be fair. He had a few good balls in and a stupid YC, but generally didn’t impress.

          Not a United fan, but expect him to get minutes but don’t expect him to start - feel United will stick with last night XI for the remainder of the season barring any injuries/suspensions

          Roll dice, probably -4 would cancel out CS anyway

          Fact that he came on last GW to give shaw some much needed breather, suggests me that shaw will start.

            That is what I was worried about as well. I think Williams looked great when he came on though.

        Should I FH this team or can I get away with a -4 next GW

          -4 is ok.
