Scoutcast Episode 340 –Premium forwards on the radar?

Premium forwards are back on the menu for our Scoutcast trio as Joe, Andy and Az look ahead to Gameweek 37+ and try to pick some differentials to help Fantasy Premier League managers make a late push for mini-league glory.

While some of their tips are certainly bargains, they think this could be the week to turn to some forgotten pricier options, who have been sold by many in recent weeks.

Up top, Spurs hitman Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Arsenal talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) look primed for investment with kind fixtures for the run-in.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s main men are under scrutiny. The underlying statistics point to a Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) haul on the horizon. But are the Premier League champions still motivated?

Recorded ahead of Thursday’s matches, all three of our Scoutcast regulars are full of hope after an average-to-bad Gameweek 36+ so far. To describe Joe’s Bench Boost this time around as laughable barely does this sorry use of a chip justice.

Our crew take a look at clean sheets for the final two matches, while Andy takes his turn to name his favourite differential for the run-in and also reveals an exciting membership offer.

The show finishes off as usual with their transfer and captaincy plans for Gameweek 37+. There are certainly plenty of differentials and forgotten premium picks to consider.

    The boring - Mahrez back in
    The safe - tierney in for injured Taylor/ lacaselles
    The risky - hit for wood and sterling

    Hmmmm

      Next - hard to guess what City players will start vs Watford

  5. umerlfc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Is AWB + Pulisic - > Doherty + Martial(c) (-4) a decent move?

    Rival has both and I'm 15 points ahead. This way I could block the points and Martial hauling would also benefit especially if he doesn't captain him

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Yeah I'd say so.

  6. antis0cial

    Willian + AWB to Martial + Tarkowski for -4 crazy? 2nd in very tight pay league

    Pope

    Salah KDB Sterling Bruno Willian
    Greenwood Jime

    Nketiah Alonso Lascelles

    Rather than cover a specific topic this week, I’m going to be on here for the next hour, and can answer any questions you have on captaincy, transfers, team selections, differentials etc, to the best of my ability!

    So, fire away!

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      When chasing do you take risks with hits or with captains?

      I'm currently stuck between chasing with a risky captain pick like Sterling over the more steady MUN options or taking a hit for Auba or Kane for instance.

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I’m chasing a top 10k right now, so good question. I’ve been going the captain route, Jesus this week, Martial last week, Aubameyang in GW32+ etc. Seems to be working so far as I’ve gone from 57k in GW30+, to 12k right now.

        1. Gegenpress
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Depends on your team and options I guess.. I went with hits (-8) and brought in Dilva (C), ended up with 88 points this week. Now 20 off the top in one of my cash leagues.

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Yep, various approaches can work for sure, and well done on Silva (c), cracking call that.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Is TAA (CHE, new) to Tarkowski (nor, BHA) a silly differential punt to try and push up the rankings given what TAA can do and his ownership levels?

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Do you know what, I was actually thinking about this specific transfer earlier, and have decided to keep Trent and focus my transfers further up the field.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Alternatively could lose Doherty (CPA, che) to Tarkowski or Maguire (WHU, lei) to Pieters/Long neither of whom I would want to play in GW 38, or just save and have 2FTs in GW 38

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I wouldn't lose Doherty this week, he should do well having been benched against Burnley.

      2. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        FWIW I'm keeping Trent to target that Newcastle fixture in GW38. They're decimated by injuries rn and Pool should end on a high

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Yep, good point that.

    3. Kno
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Stick or twist with pulisic?

      Considering getting dilva in for him

      1. Seamy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I'm sticking and benching this week as I have a lot ITB to make the move another way

      2. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I'd keep, I think this game against Liverpool might actually suit him.

    4. umerlfc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Is AWB + Pulisic - > Doherty + Martial(c) (-4) a decent move?

      Rival has both & I'm 15 points ahead. This way I could block the points and Martial hauling would also benefit especially if he doesn't captain him

        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        In isolation, I wouldn't make those moves, but if it's all about winning your ML, it prob makes sense.

        1. umerlfc
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Thanks, it's all about the ML now, nothing to gain elsewhere anyways with a poor rank like this

    5. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Kane or Jesus for GW37 and 38?

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Hmm, I prefer Jesus, I still don't trust Spurs.

    6. Sid123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 12 days ago

      Any idea if Holgate will play? And thoughts on transfers here. I'm stuck with 1 free transfer.
      De gea button
      Taa lascelles Doherty kiko Holgate
      Bruno kdb pulisic Foden Salah
      Vardy jimo greenwood

      Cheers

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Whilst it isn't ideal at this stage of the season making defensive transfers, it might be best here, as I think you could struggle next week too IF Holgate is out.

        If you sold Lascelles or Holgate, how much would you have in the bank?

        1. Sid123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I currently have 1.6 in the bank so flexible. Who would you suggest?

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I'd be tempted by Tarkowski.

            1. Sid123
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 12 days ago

              Would you be further tempted by a -4 or even-8 to try for silva and martial?

              1. avfc82
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 10 Years
                2 months, 12 days ago

                Who would you take out?

                1. Sid123
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  I would remove pulisic for martial which is the -4. Then due to too many United swap deals get for pope or greenwood for someone?

                  1. avfc82
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • Has Moderation Rights
                    • 10 Years
                    2 months, 12 days ago

                    So it's essentially a -8 to get Martial in, would prob leave it to be honest.

                    1. Sid123
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 1 Year

                      Thanks for your advice and time mate.

                      1. avfc82

                        • 10 Years
                        2 months, 12 days ago

                        No worries, might do another one ahead of the final GW if it helps.

                      2. Sid123

                        Always good to bounce ideas off someone else

    7. Seamy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Do you think David Silva gets rested in the FA cup? (i.e. He gets 60+ minutes in GW37+)

      1. Seamy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Currently leaning Foden > Dilva over Vardy > Auba

        1. Seamy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I'm predicting the exact same line-up.
          Rodri - Gundo - KdB is his first choice midfield

          1. diesel001
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I think it his first choice for tough games. Because it gives him protection and unlocks KDB. But for easy games (e.g. home games and bottom half teams away from home) he plays the two forward thinking midfielders (Silva and KDB, I expect this to be Bernardo and KDB next season).

      2. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I'm tempted to say he'll be benched in the FA Cup, but I'm really not sure, we never really know with Pep do we.

        You'd think he'd start in GW38+ tho.

        1. Seamy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Yeah I'm FH'ing GW38+ and he's a lock. Potential captain

    8. I AM THE FPL MONSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      OR 3073. FH GW38. Who should I take a 1 week punt on GW37?

      A) Jiminez - CPalace(home)

      B) Rashford - WHam(home)

      Thanks 🙂

      1. Seamy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Its got to be Rashford with the pregnancy risk?

      2. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        You're having a decent season then, well done.

        Rashford, IMO.

    9. FPL Kaka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Is Rashford to Auba a good transfer?

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Hmm, not keen on that move myself.

    10. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      With only 2 FT left, who would you be considering as the top priority transfers in general?

      My thoughts are:

      Sterling - huge upside, great fixtures, could he be rested though?

      Aubameyang - great fixtures, often turns it on late season while chasing GB, but unreliable and inconsistent on the left and Arsenal don't have much to play for

      Tarkowski / Wood - best fixtures of all, potentially low upside? Wood rarely gets more than 1 goal and neither do Burnley, Tark doesn't score many and could end up just being 2x 6 pts

      Rashford/Jesus - for those of us already maxed on City and Utd, is it worth switcherooing to in form forward from out-of-form forward or mid?

      Son/Kane - late punt on Spurs?

      Would love to hear your thoughts.

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        On a related note, I usually think of transfers in a way where I look at the upcoming weeks (37, 38) and think, if you had a wildcard for just those 2 weeks, who would be in your squad, and what would the order of priorities be? Thanks!

      2. Fire Chief Moe
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        "Just 2x6 pts". Come on 12 points from 2 games is a great return!

        1. Long ago I drew a walrus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          In isolation yes but with 2 FTs to go we're chasing upsides, hence the question asking for priorities. 12 points in 2 games is a good transfer but not the best possible transfer IF someone like Sterling gets it in one game.

        Nice post.

        In terms of big hitters, Aubameyang looks good for 38+, not so sure this week against the mighty Villa tho!

        Personally, I still don't trust Spurs. Of course they could still do well, as they did against Newcastle, but I'd feel more confident backing one of the City midfielders (Sterling is prob worth the risk) or Jesus, or at United Martial, Rashford - everyone owns Fernandes right?!

        Wood is a great differential option this week, as are players like Stanislas, Armstrong, Trossard and McNeil - it's just hard to fit the midfielders in.

        1. Long ago I drew a walrus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Interesting point on Villa, I've watched a couple of their games recently and while they're tighter at the back (that liverpool game was so boring) they seem to always be good for conceding 1 or 2? After the blow yesterday, wondering if floodgates could open.

            • 10 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Yeah, it was kind of a joke, but I do genuinely think there are better options than Auba this week.

            1. Long ago I drew a walrus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Nice one, happy to keep Vardy for one more then.

      How do you balance being an fpl legend with being apparently such a nice guy?

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Haha, I'm not sure about the FPL legend bit, but I like to think I'm a nice guy. To be honest, these days, I get as much enjoyment trying to help others out as I do with my own team.

    12. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years

      Best punt/move for this GW?

      A) Pulisic > Dilva
      B) Aurier/Robinson > Tarkowski
      C) Connolly > J.Rod (if fit)

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I do quite like that C move, if confirmed fit. Have a look at last weeks Spot the Differential, if you haven't already, as I wrote about him there.

          Who do you prefer this GW? JRod or Wood?

          Ive always liked JRod, but Wood is the type of player Norwich defs seem to hate playing against

      Willian, Vardy-> Salah, Nketiah (-4) Play 352 will allow me to Foden->Dilva in week 38?

        Hmm, could work with Salah coming in, but if it were my team, I prob wouldn't make those moves.

        Don't have Martial and looking to get him in.

        Considering removing either KDB or Mahrez to get him. Is it worth it firstly, and if yes, which player would you take out? Thanks!

          Yeah, Martial would be my top pick in the entire game right now, and I'd be tempted to remove Mahrez, over De Bruyne for him.

        I'm looking for an inexpensive defender for the next two game weeks.

        Who would you recommend up to 4.3m?

        1. ElChapo

          Lamptey

          Great shout on Lamptey, or Long / Pieters at Burnley.

        Should we keep Foden and Greenwood?They are out of form and there is a rotation risk with the fa cup games.Greenwood->Wood is a popular move this gw.

          I'm holding Foden, but not against that Greenwood > Wood move.

        Take hit or play steady ??
        Taking Red after Red arrows ...

        Currently Leaning towards holding onto Pulisic & Greenwood. Staying patient for one more GW.

          I've taken 16 points of hits over the past 3 GWs. After the Mane fail and watching Sterling and Antonio turn it on I told myself I didn't care any more. However if I didn't take those hits and kept my original players (Son, eStevens etc) I'd be about 20k better off in rank.

          Having said that, don't take a hit in GW38. Can you imagine if that contributes to a red arrow and you have to deal with it all the way until the next season starts

              For some reason I always remembered you played FH in that epic cup run of yours earlier in the season but maybe that was BB instead

          I tend to play steady, but have had a bit of joy by going with Jesus and Martial as my captain in recent weeks. That's the strategy I'd lean towards.

            Thanks mate
            I'm leaning towards safety approach for Some reason ...

        What is your process for choosing a captain and for finding differentials?

        No questions, but wanted to say you’re a class act, both on here and twitter. The humility is really refreshing to see and stands out amongst the general cesspool of self-congratulation and backhanded put downs that seem to be the norm.

          Agree. Him and Lateriser12 are two of the good guys.

          Thanks mate, really appreciate that.

          Basically I just love FPL, and get quite a bit of enjoyment these helping others out, or at least trying to!

        Hey Tom, Ings, Jiminez or Woods for Giroud replacement for this week only (FH GW38)?

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Jeez, that's tough, I like them all to be honest, but I'd be tempted by Wood for one week. Burnley don't score many so it comes with a bit of risk, but he usually picks up bonus if he does return, so you're prob looking at 7-9 points.

          1. Rolls-Royce
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Thanks, mate. Since I am not chasing I am thinking of playing safe and going for Ings the golden boot hunter, or Jimenez against depleted Palace side who have little motivation to play for. A really tough decision this week.

        Hey Tom

        I went risky with my moves (Doherty, Puli > Tark, Martial (C) last night) but feel like this is the time to try. I’m chasing in ML and at 42k but would like to finish in top 25k ideally.

        0itb -4
        Pope
        TAA, Tark, Kiko
        Salah, Sterling, Dilva, Bruno, Martial (C)
        Vardy, Ings
        (Martin) (Greenwood, Simpson, Lascelles)

        With your crystal ball, how badly will I be burnt by this stupid move? 😆

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Btw I have FH for GW38

          • 10 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Hmm, well Doherty has a good fixture on paper, but I can't argue with the move for Martial - IMO, he's the best player to own in the game right now.

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            It was either ditching Doherty or TAA. Probably swayed by my loyalties but I believe Trent still has some fight left in him and will try and redeem himself vs CHE.

            May be totally wrong though!

          FH in gw 38 so just doing either VVD>Doherty or vardy

          1. drughi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years

            strange lost something there, basically which transfer looks best, vardy>jimenez or VVD>Doherty ? FH in gw 38

            1. avfc82

              I prefer van Dijk > Doherty out of those options mate.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Best captaincy option out Bruno, Martial & Rash?

          I have Mahrez, Sterling & Jesus too but think City attacker are risky for captaincy.

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Martial from United, Jesus from City, IMO, but it's a bit of a lottery this week.

          Egan over 4.7 or less Burnley defender for GW37 only due to added goal threat?

            • 10 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I'd take the Burnley defender this week.

        • Thomas M.
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Vardy and Greenwood to Rashford and Ings worth a -4?

            • 10 Years

            Hmm, that's really tough. Initial thought was yes, but it could backfire.

          Ok, so my bench sucks and I have foden and DCL in my starting XI and 4.2 mill in the bank....

          I was thinking DCL and Foden to Saka and Aubamayang

          Gives me

          Ederson
          Maguire TAA Doherty
          Salah KDB Saka Martial Bruno
          Ings Aubamayang.

          Or do I try to get a cheap striker and get Sterling in for foden.

          Or do nothing. I'm stuck - at OR of 15k, so happy that I don't need to go crazy

            • 4 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Or just Foden to Mahrez and Play DCL/Nketiah as 2nd striker - no hit this way.

            Foden > Mahrez seems a bit sideways for me this week. What's your budget if you just remove Calvert-Lewin?

          hey!
          So i'm FHing in 38+, 2 transfers to do, which would you suggest? as a 1-week punt

          A-Mane & Lascelles to Salah & Long/Bardsley/Pieters (any burnley defender except tark)

          B- TAA & Lascelles to Robbo & Tark

          Thoughts on the chances of foden starting the watford game or the Norwich game? I know he had been starting the home games but since norwich is the final one and champs league still coming for them im worried pep will go full strength vs norwich( I.e. no foden ).

          1. The Red Devil
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Starts Norwich
            Benched at Watford

            2 months, 12 days ago

            Not a big fan of trying to predict Pep's lineups, but either way, he's shown he can impact games from the bench and haul, so I still think he's a decent pick.

          Looks like I’ll have to start Nketiah in 37+, with a bench consisting of Lascelles, Guendozi and Kiko. Would you do a transfer to sort it out, maybe Lascelles -> Long? Or play Nketiah and have 2 fts for 38+?

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            You'd expect Nketiah to start against Villa, with Lacazette having played quite a few games straight, so I think you're in a position where you can hold, and 2 FT's could be really useful in 38+. I may well do the same.

            I'd really try and get Martial in there, but appreciate it's tricky with 3 x United already. Losing one of the Chelsea mids makes most sense.

          What are your thoughts on Salah to Sterling gameweek 38 and captain Sterling ?

          Salah looks too greedy to me and almost too desperate to score, but i sold him last year before his hatrick away to Bournemouth and still scarred by that !

            Should say current midfield Salah KDB Antonio Bruno Martial .............so Salah the only one i'd sell i think

              I wouldn't lose Salah in 38+, Newcastle have most of their centre backs out and have the worst xGC in the league since the restart.

                Thanks Tom appreciate the response, I think you are probably correct might try and fit Jesus in for Ings and lose Trent for a Burnley defender. Don’t fancy Ings against Shef and City v Norwich should be where the points are.

          Feel a bit lost going into 37+. Team is strong yet I'd like to ditch half of them weirdly enough. What do you think? 1ft 0itb

          Pope, Patricio
          TAA, VVD, Lascelles, Boly, Aurier
          KDB, Mahrez, Bruno, Martial, Antonio
          Greenwood, Jimenez, Jesus

          No confidence of returns from liverpool defence vs Chelsea or starts for City players vs Watford. Cheers.

            I think you look in pretty good shape mate... good luck deciding on which keeper to start this week 🙂 In terms of moves, I'm not against removing van Dijk, or you could hold and have 2 FT's for 38+, which could be handy.

              It will be Patricio again. One of these days they wont lose the cs in the last minute!

              Toyed with VVD to Tarkowski to have Burnley defence. Might do that.

          Probably u are gone by now, but let’s try.

          Giroud, Lascelles > Wood, Tarkowski for a hit?

          I want to leave Puli as I think he would do better vs Liverpool, and I don’t have any playing defs now.

          Or just Lascelles to Long/Pieters?

          Thanks mate!

            Still here mate. I'd prioritise Giroud > Wood, but if you need a starting defender, Lascelles to one of the cheap Burnley guys makes sense. I wouldn't take the hit, personally.

          I'm trailing my ML by 15. He has KDB Foden Martial Bruno Pullisic Rashford Jimi Ings.

          No idea what to this week. Have 2.5 ITB. Do i stick and have 2 FTs for the last week? Salah, Pullisic, Foden all concerns for me and lack of a big city mid this week

            Think you've accidentally included Fernandez twice, but regardless, I'd be tempted to hold and go into 38+ with 2 FT's.

              yeah other is Diop. Thanks Tom mate! no idea who to bench or captain! any ideas are welcome!

                2 months, 12 days ago

                Right now, I'd prob go like this...

                Pope
                Alexander-Arnold, Aurier, Doherty
                Fernandes, Foden, Martial, Pulisic, Salah
                Jesus, Vardy

                Martinez, Greenwood, Fernandez, Diop

                That Foden / Greenwood decision is 50/50 tho.

                Tough week for captaincy, I like Martial, Jesus and Salah this week.

          Chasing ML so need differential. He had Jesus Sterling KDB Martial as I do. Would you bring Aubameyang and Wood in for Giroud Vardy as differentials or even Sterling to Salah as captain to try and close 40 point gap. Think he will get Bruno and Ings?

              1.4 in bank and only 1 free but think I need differentials so would take -4 if necessary

                2 months, 12 days ago

                I'd be tempted to just do Giroud > Wood this week, then see how it lies heading into 38+, and roll the dice then if you need to.

                  Cheers- appreciate advice. Sensible as also would like ranking to be inside top 20K. Will probably captain Bruno on basis he does not presently have. Good luck for rest of season

          I have Pulisic and van Dijk starting in my team at the moment but feel that I should either back Liverpool and replace Pulisic with Salah or back Chelsea and bench van Dijk (defence would then be AWB, Digne, Tark). What are your thoughts?

          Hi Tom,

          Thanks for all the articles and insight this season.

          If you're still here... I'm looking at Salah + Greenwood -> Martial(c) + Ings (-4). Daft or worthwhile?

          Other option is just keep the above two and do Alonso -> Sheff Utd defender.

          FH in 38 so one-week moves.

              Or I could do Vardy,Pulisic to Martial(C),Wood

                Hmm, I'm normally against hits but that Pulisic, Vardy > Martial (c), Wood move does look quite tasty.

                    At this stage of the season, I'd prob just start him and hope for the best, and use your transfers further forward.

        • AzzaroMax99

          Opinion on these two transfers? For a hit btw.

          Vardy+Willian to Wood+Sterling

          That would give me this squad:

          Pope
          Doherty Egan Aurier*
          KDB Sterling Martial Bruno Antonio
          Jesus Wood

          Reina McBurnie Targett Lascelles**

          Also not sure about my cap.
          For now it's on Martial. Home player, WH are leaky in def.

            Could work, but for a hit, I'm not sure - Sterling's game time could be an issue.

            Re captain, it's gotta be someone from City or United this week, IMO.

          Looks like I missed the ship for a quick Q&A with one of the greats of FPL,

          But let me try in case you are still available to answer the question.

          I will be using FH in 38+, and I go into 37+ with two transfers in hand. I am quite happy with my front 7, the only change I was considering was Vardy to Wood, which now I am not sure of after looking at Vardy's excellent performance against Sheffield United.

          Should I instead use my 2FT's to make two defensive transfers? - Digne and Aurier out for possibly a Arsenal defender(Tierney, Bellerin) and a Burnley defender (Tarkowski), and play Saiss as my 3rd defender leaving Maguire on the bench.

              Ings, Vardy, Rashford

              FH left for 38.

              Choices for 37:
              (a) Digne + Aurier - >Tierney + Tarkowski

              (b) Vardy to Wood + Loads of money to make any move (Femenia to Trent/Robbo?)

          Good evening Mr.Freeman.
          So my issue is that of my 5 defenders Lascelles Taylor are injured and 3rd is Lamptey vs NewC. As I have FH for gw 38, should I focus on attack transfers as more upside?

            Hey Tom,

            like you, i am trying hard to get martial into my team. Already have ddg so is it worth taking a hit to do ddg/pulisic >> pope/martial(-4)? what complicates it even more is that i will (have to) bench foden once i bring in martial. if i don't, pulisic would have been my 1st sub. Suggestions? will FH38

            DDG
            TAA Lamptey Doherty
            Mahrez Foden Bruno KDB -- Pulisic
            Jimenez Ings Rashford

              I already own Martial mate, but I wouldn't start restructuring your team / taking hits to get him in. There is a bit too much uncertainty with the FA Cup games, which isn't ideal.

            Yeah, I think so, and keep everything crossed the three fit ones play. If you move Pulisic on and start his replacement, I'd bench Greenwood over Vardy too.

          Hi Tom..really appreciate if you could give me some suggestion. Currently sitting on 2K OR. My team as below, 1FT, 2.7M ITB.

          DDG
          TAA Saiss Doherty
          Salah Pulisic Bruno(c) KDB
          Jimenez Ings Greenwood

          Martin, Willian, kiko, Taylor*

          Which Option is the best?
          1. Greenwood-->Wood
          2. DDG + Willian --> Pope + Martial(c) -4pts
          3. Greenwood + Willian > Wood + Martial(c) -4pts

            Great OR, well played.

            Out of those options, I like 1.

          Hi Tom,

          Firstly, you are one of the most humble Fpl pundit I have ever seen.

          Having a horrible season, 50 points behind a friend.. so that's all the target now.. But every differential move I am making is not working. So wanted your suggestion on the Team :

          Pope
          Taa Saiss Digne
          Bruno Martial Mane Kdb Pulisic
          Greenwood Vardy

          Button Nketiah Femenía Lascelles

          1 ft. 0.9 itb

          Thinking of Vardy to Ings/Jesus.
          Thoughts? Any other suggestions?

          Hey Tom, I'm a bit late to the party but if you're still about be good to get your view.

          Have been toying with an Azpi to Tierney transfer but think 2 frees could prove valuable going into 38. My dilemmas are:

          -Greenwood v Puli in starting 11 (got Tony & Bruno)
          - Play one of Azpi (liv), KWP (bou) or Justin (tot). Not appealing I know.

          Currently on this, cap TBC.

          Pope
          KWP, Lamptey, Digne
          Raz, KDB, Bruno, Tony, Puli
          Jesus, Ings
          (Greenwood, Azpi, Justin)

            2 months, 12 days ago

            Yeah, I think holding makes sense. If it were me I’d start Pulisic, and prob Azpilicueta.

              Just seen this cheers Tom, funnily enough I have switched to Azpi but still tempted by KWP, don't see a CS for any of my options and he's just been rested, up against BOU who are most likely to conceded IMO and he has an attacking return in him. GL.

        G2G? Would prefer not to do any transfers so i have 2FT for final GW but defense is a struggle as you can see. Only thing would be lascelles > Burnley defender but is it worth free transfer?

        Patricio
        Doherty - TAA - Kiko
        Mane - KDB - Mahrez - Bruno
        Vardy - Jimi - Greenwood

        (3.9m) - Saka - Holgate - Lascelles

        1. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years

          it is, Kiko might score negative points

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          I am stuck in the same boat and if Holgate is ruled out will probably do it

          1. Bobby_Baggio
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            think holgate will be out - didnt look too clever

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I have Kiko as my 3rd def too! Likely to be a 0.

          Probably safe to hold though

        2. InvertedWinger
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Im actually really tempted to Cap Sterling too. I cant see Jesus start 2 days after a Cup SF having just played 70+ mins before that.
          Then again, Pep will Pep. High risk high reward. Martial is a good captain on paper, too

        Hi all,

        Is Aubameyang or Vardy a better option for the last 2 games? I know the answer may seem obvious with Auba's fixtures but he also has an FA Cup final where he could pick up an injury.

        Vardy + Willian > Auba + Mahrez -4 worth it?

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I decided to hold Vardy at least for 37. He looked good the other day and could’ve scored a hatful and has golden boot to play for.

        2. Traction Engine Foot
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Auba never seems to get injured. But I think I'll hold Vardy for one more.

        • 9 Years

        Do we reckon David Silva gets rested in the FA cup? (i.e. He gets 60+ minutes in GW37+)

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I have him but fear he’ll play in cup and be rested for GW37 so he plays rested in the final match

            Think KdB is a risk because of FA Cup as is Obamawang (he was rested v Pool precisely for the cup). But apart from that looks orrite. Maybe get Wood v Norwich and upgrade to Mane/Salah against a no good Chelsea def?

              • 5 Years

            I'd probably keep in those circumstances. Spurs defence no so good and Wood doesn't seem likely to haul.

            So many captaincy options for GW37...

            Bruno

            Martial

            Rashford

            So difficult to decide...

              I'm leaning towards Martial or Rash over Bruno.

              I dont own him but Martial is the very obvious choice imo

                Bit inconsistent for me. Hauls one week then blanks the next. Southampton game case in point. I'm tempted to Bruno simply because of his consistency but apparently he looked a bit tired last night. Then there's Rashford: oh sweet, sweet Rashford...

                  Inconsistent? Wow. He’s been the most consistent player in fpl recently. He’s scored pretty much the same as Bruno since restart

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    He has double the amount of blanks as Bruno tho. 1 v 2.

                      2 months, 12 days ago

                      That means hes more explosive which is better for a captaincy imo

                      Oh wait just saw your rank. I'll shut up now. So you think I should go for Martial out of those three? I also own Sterling. VC him?

              Cant look past martial considering his home form and the opposition

            Who to get in for Taylor?

            A. Pieters (nor)
            B. O Connel (EVE)
            C. Any other suggestion for 4.6m?

              Long or Bardsley.

              Taylor could be back next week so Pieters might not start.

                That would solve a problem for me for sure if Taylor was back - fingers crossed

                Taykor defo out this weekend though, right?

                  Yes looks likely. Dyche presser is due in sometime.

                Im free hitting gw38

              I like A, although not OOO with Taylor out

              I may go Saiss.
              O’Connel from those two. Everton look toothless.

            Is Taylor ----> Doherty worth -4?

            If Mendy doesnt play, I could end with Mendy, Taylor and Lascelles all as no shows!

          • The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Can I rely on TAA, Azpilicueta and Doherty to play?

            Or should I upgrade Laselles or Taylor to someone like Saiss as backup?
            If possible I’d rather save or use the FT for midfield.

              Those 3 will play
