    Bruno, Martial,KDB,Son,Pulisic
    DCL, Vardy, Nketiah
    Bank: 0.3m, FT: 1

    A. Vardy -> Jesus/Lacazette
    B. Pulisic -> David Silva
    C. Bruno/Martial -> Mehrez

    please suggest if any hit is worth?

    Remind me how classic leagues are decided if it’s a draw? 🙂

      Least number of transfers made wins I think

      1. BigDaveSaves

        Yep - happened to me once - brutal haha

  3. Seamy

    Who would you prefer this week?
    A) Salah & Robbo
    B) Mane & TAA

    1. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      A

  4. CrouchDown
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    So I'm chasing an 18 point lead and my rival is playing TC on Dilva. He also has TAA and KDB.

    In this case only, would it still be crazy to do the following for a -8?

    TAA > Mendy
    KDB > Sterling (C)
    Vardy > Auba

    1. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      I like those moves

    2. PLerix
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You need to something, this might work

  5. ritzyd
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    What do we think? FH comes down to:

    A - Mahrez, Ings, Aurier
    B - KDB, Ings, Stephens
    C - Jesus, Martial, Stephens

    1. Pickle juice

    Does anyone follow FPL Rockstar on Twitter? Did he post something about GW38 leaks? Thanks.

    1. Seamy

      He’s not posting any leaks this week

          There will still be leaks. They’ll just be harder to verify

            Ye, he’s been the only one verified that I knew about.

            Pretty confident he'll have it

  7. The Senate
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    FFS mods and writers, any chance of an RMFHT collection article?

  8. Rodney
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    Quick yes or no:

    KDB & Fernandes to Stirling & Dilva (-4)

    Am 3rd in ML, 2nd and 1st Don't have either, although I reckon both my transfer Salah to Sterling, so I'd like to get Sterling without losing Salah. 10 points between us and a difference of £500 on the line!

    1. The Senate
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      instinct says:
      probably yes, but do you really need to sell Bruno to get Sterling and Dilva?

      1. Rodney
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        It makes the exact money for the move with the little itb I have, so actually need to pull the trigger soon before Stirling potentially rises.

    2. linkafu
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Not for me

    3. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Might backfire, but in your shoes I would do it. The only thing that bothers me is if you Cap Salah there is a chance they will too, if you cap Sterling there is a chance they will too...

      1. Rodney
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        Yep, that is always the worry. It's a complete guessing game but I would not be surprised if both sold Salah for Sterling and captained him. Although my plan would also be to captain him. The league is close enough that we could have the same captain and I could still gain.

    4. Seamy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Yes for me. Strong captain choice in the -4

    5. Rodney
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Thanks all for the replies....also noticed I kept spelling Sterling incorrectly!

    6. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      I'm probably ditching Bruno also.
      So yes from me.

  9. Ruinenlust
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    Help!!

    A) Martial and Jesus

    or

    B) KDB and Ings

    1. linkafu

  10. toerag

    what would be the best FH midfield???
    im getting a headache now

    1. Seamy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      2/3 city, 1 Liverpool, 1 Utd, 1 West Ham potentially

    2. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      I'm on Salah, Sterling, KDB, Silva, Pulisic

      1. toerag
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        salah sterling silva then 2 others it looks like

        im on martial and pulisic atm but may look at antonio over pulisic

        wham v villa, against che v wolves

        1. Captain_Shirokov
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 12 hours ago

          Villa will be up for it though, need a result.

          1. toerag
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 12 hours ago

            wolves cannot get themselves into europe i take it. only if chelsea win the cup

    3. Rodney
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Sir Michail 100%

    4. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      My current FH midfield is
      Sterling, Silva, Salah, Martial, Antonio

      I'm quite afraid to go without Man United's asset hence Martial, but maybe Mahrez would be a better pick.

      1. toerag
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        im coming over to your choices ...hmmm

  11. Obi Wan Elokobi
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    On a FH.

    Which of these 2 would you prefer.

    A)
    Pope
    Robertson Digne Pieters
    Salah Dilva KDB Sterling Son
    Kane Greenwood

    B)
    Martínez
    Pieters, Robertson, Bardsley
    Salah Dilva Mahrez Sterling Martial
    Kane Auba

    Thanks.

  12. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    I am bringing Son in for Martial or Kane in for Jesus. Just have to wait and hope for early team news before I pull the trigger. Going hit free into GW38 as chasing someone who has a 10 point lead.

    He most likely will take a hit or 2 as well with Foden Sterling and KDB his current City 3 vs mine Jesus Sterling Dilva. Just want to finish ahead of him! I have Salah, he doesn't. If he takes 1 or 2 hits, I reckon it is a done deal for me with both of us likely to cap Sterling. He has no chips left either 🙂

  13. Sgt Frank Drebin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    Who is your 3 from Man City? Would like to have Mahrez (besides Silva nad Sterling) but I feel like there are so many options in the midfield it is better to use that spot for someone else and instead pick Jesus...

    1. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      And hope it is Jesus' day and he finally don't undeperform xG...

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Mine are Dilva Sterling and Jesus.

      I really want to get rid of Jesus and have enough cash to do him to Kane pending early team news.

      If Jesus starts I am keeping and go with the second plan of Martial to Son.

      Having triple City attack for the last day is a no brainer.

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        Jesus should start imho

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 12 hours ago

          Really hope he does!

    3. LE CHARO
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Sterling, KDB, Mahrez

  14. AdamJ91
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    Afternoon. How's this FH team looking?

    Martinez
    Robbo / TAA / Pieters
    Salah / Sterling / KDB / D.Silva / Antonio
    Kane / Greenwood

    (Button / Nketiah / Branthwaite / Williams)

    0.4 ITB

  15. Keeptrying
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    Who would you pick? (already have Martial, Sterling, Salah & Dilva)

    A) Bruno
    B) Mahrez
    C) Antonio
    D) Pulisic

    1. cheekumz
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Mahrez for me

      1. Keeptrying
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        Thanks!

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Fernandes is nailed and does well away from home. Lot's saying he looks tired and laboured. I am keeping.

      1. Keeptrying
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 11 hours ago

        makes sense.

  16. Dynamic Duos
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    Good points for bench on bb?

    I got 18

    Fabs (3) , Greenwood (9) Alonso (0) Fernandez (6)

    Rest of team 97

  17. Tabasco
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 12 hours ago

    Hi guys, not sure what to do here (0 ITB). Can't really afford a hit because I'm 3 behind in a ML:

    Martinez (Martin)
    Aurier A-Arnold Doherty (Bednarek) (Robinson)
    KDB Salah Mahrez Fernandes Willian
    Jiminez Rashford (Greenwood)

    A) Fernandes to Dilva
    B) Willian to Grealish/Antonio/Foden
    C) Jiminez to ings
    E) How the hell do I get in Sterling

    1. Pickle juice
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Pretty much same team .....im doing martial/bruno to dsilva

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Can you not do Willian to Dilva?

      Wolves are solid at the back. Chelsea could very score but I reckon Wolves cleanie incoming.

  18. Oringer7
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Thoughts on this FH? .1 itb

      Pope (3.9)
      TAA Aurier Pieters (Diop, Williams)
      Sterling Dilva Richarlson Antonio (Saka)
      Kane Jesus Greenwood

    • cheekumz
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Do you prefer Greenwood or Wood for 38? Choice doesn't really affect rest of team. Greenwood improves my defence a little but only with player from same team just a little more attacking. So it really comes down to who's more likely to score more between these two.

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        I'm starting Wood and benching Greenwood atm

        1. cheekumz
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 12 hours ago

          This was my instinct as well but with Lei's current defensive woes/injuries if Greenwood plays I think he could do quite well. its tough.

      2. Planet_Marss
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        i prefer my wood green

      3. LE CHARO
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        Greenwood is more explosive and has the potential to really hurt that sluggish Leicester backline. Also, Burnley's priority will be not to concede rather than score

    • ZTF
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Pulisic to Mahrez -4 when chasing definitely doesn’t make sense right?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        Pulisic +4 a good option if chasing

      2. Keeptrying
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        might not pay off

      3. Planet_Marss
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        keep

      4. Whats the Huth
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        I’d keep especially if you’re chasing. You want differentials

      5. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        No, Pulisic was on fire yesterday. Wolves defence not on the beach like Liverpool but still...and he has been rested recently and Chelsea are defo going for it!

    • Ray In Bruges.
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      11 points back - Wildcard of a lifetime to play.

      Who is essential in GW38?

      Pope (McCarthy)
      TAA Doherty Stevens (Bednarak, Kiko)
      Pulisic Fernandes Martial KDB (Dendoncker)
      Abraham Jimenez Jesus

    • Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Am i right in thinking Mendy (NOR) would have higher expected points but Digne (BOU) has the higher ceiling?

      1. Obi Wan Elokobi
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        The fact Bournemouth have to win I can imagine they’ll be guns blazing from the outset. Could work in Dignes favour going forward

        1. Shark Team
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 12 hours ago

          This means Everton Ccs is gone. You are absolutely wrong

      2. Whats the Huth
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        I think mendy will be heavily involved vs Norwich. Him and sterling loves playing together

    • Pickle juice
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      Would you do the below

      Kdb and martial/bruno ------> sterling and d silva (-4pts)

      Thanks

      1. Planet_Marss
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        possibly

        1. Pickle juice
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 12 hours ago

          Pretty much same team .....im doing martial/bruno to dsilva

          1. Pickle juice
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 12 hours ago

            Wrong post

      2. The Senate
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        I've already answered this above: see Rodney's post

        1. Pickle juice
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 12 hours ago

          Cheers would you swap out bruno or martial ( i have rashford)

          1. The Senate
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 12 hours ago

            I would keep Martial, but there's little in it - both capable of hauling, just Sterling and Dilva are more capable.

            if I had FH, my attackers would be:
            Salah Sterling Dilva Martial
            Kane Greenwood

            and one of KDB, Bruno, Jimenez or Ings (+fodder)

    • Whats the Huth
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      BENCH Greenwood or Doherty

      Greenwood is currently benched

      1. Planet_Marss

        1. Whats the Huth
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 12 hours ago

          Looks like I’m going 4 at the back.

      2. wulfranian
        • 4 Years

        Doherty

      3. Shark Team

    • Shark Team

      No Salah FH team looks great.

      Pope
      TAA Aurier Pieters
      Sterling(C) Mahrez Dilva Antonio
      Ings Auba Kane

      What do you think?

      1. Obi Wan Elokobi
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        No it doesn’t. Looks same as every other without Salah

        Yeah I'm not convinced he's a good pick at all this week.

          But if it's a case of Salah vs Auba, Salah wins imo.

            I think Auba is a safer pick this gw this is why I chose him. I also have 1.2 it so I can do this swap

        it's basically a choice between Salah + cheap forward as Greenwood vs Auba and bench fodder. If you think Arsenal will score well go for it.

          Exactly. But I can't afford Greenwood for 0.1£ so I'm going with Antonio and Ings instead and also have more money to spent on Def and get Pope

        I'd rather have Martial than Auba
