Son or Kane? Which FPL asset can best capitalise on Spurs’ appealing fixtures?

Harry Kane‘s (£10.5m) end to the 2019/20 season suggests he could be the key asset for those looking to tap into Spurs’ appealing fixtures this time around.

Jose Mourinho’s men sit second on the Season Ticker for attacking potential over the first six Gameweeks, based on their opponents.

During this period they host Everton, Newcastle and West Ham while they’re road trips take them to Southampton, Manchester United and Burnley.

Spurs players had not appeared in too many Fantasy Premier League drafts before Thursday’s fixture release, but now that we know the schedules, Mourinho’s charges have become more popular.

As Fantasy managers search for the best way to invest in Spurs’ attack, Son Heung-min (£9.0m) and Kane are the front-runners, currently sat in 18% and 14.5% of squads respectively.

Ahead of the new season, we have compared how these two attackers performed during Project Restart. As this uses Opta data, only those with a valid Fantasy Football Scout subscription can access it in full.

What were Son and Kane’s average positions?

    Team with 2.0 ITB

    McCarthy

    Vinagre TAA Justin (Ferguson,Saliba)

    Son Auba Salah JWP Ziyech

    Adams Mitrovic (Davis)

    Plan: Mitrovic,JWP TAA and McCarthy are season players for me. Auba is out after GW2 and Ziyech and Son follow soon after when I get 2 FTs. Last to go is Adams who gets replaced by Wood. Saliba for mitrovic for GW1 if I think Saliba starts.

    Inspired by the striker post I drew up a quick 4-3-3

    Lloris

    TAA - Doherty - Vinagre - Davies

    Armstrong - Ziyech - Salah

    Ings - Werner - Vardy

    1M ITB

    I like this a lot, wow. Downside is no KDB for a bit but the strikers will surely make that more than worth it. All of them are tailsman too, 1 goal worth 9 points for them! Can Salah (C) GW1 and Martial (C) GW2 too! To think I was set on 5 ATB earlier, FPL is beautiful. Who knows what else will come to mind sbetween now and GW1.

      Sounds silly, but not sold on Ings and Vardy at the price.

    I’d really rather not have to waste transfers on 4.5m defs because they’re not as nailed as we thought. Of the 4.5’s am I correct in assuming.

    Nailed:
    Taylor, KWP, Lamptey/Webster, Dallas, Vinagre (unless LB signed)

    Not nailed/Temporarily starting:
    Justin short term(due to Evans injury), Ferguson(4m, unless another signing?)
    Saliba

    Thanks in advance

    Is Obafemi a starter?

    1. Collie01

      I don't think so. Likely to be Ings and Adams.

    2. Twisted Saltergater

      If he goes to Villa, yes.

    What you guys think of Ben chilwell on route to Chelsea.

    1. TheMightyBee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Should do well in an attacking team like Chelsea ... Assuming he's still going to be 5.5m is he going to get better returns than Aurier ? I'm not sure

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Think I'll get him at 5.5m. Would allow Dave to stay back and make a 3.

    Thoughts on Kane + Son vs Everton, then a -4 to Bruno + Martial vs Palace in GW2?

    1. Adambailey7

      With spurs facing Southampton (GW2) and Newcastle (GW3) do you really have to swap both straight away?

  8. Adambailey7

    Mount or Maddison?

    Anyone think bench boost wk1 then wc, thought is easier to use now rather than get decent bench later

    Morning Chaps, my first draft and trying to differ (slightly) for GW1.

    Schmeichel (Johnstone)

    TAA - KWP - Tierney (Justin/Ferguson)

    Saint-Maxim - Aubameyang - Mane - Alli - Traore

    Jiménez - Mitrovic (Brewster)

    1mil ITB

    (Brewster has been picked purely on the loan idea)

    I’m keen to monitor preseason games and signings however I honestly believe, albeit a hard/scary tactic when trying to implement, that this season the focus has to be midfield. I would love to look at Werner for example however am scared he will be rotated. I fear rotation with the teams in Europe and that’s why I’ve doubled up on Wolves attack. I think they will be the team to watch again this season.

    Hard for me to leave Utd players out but GW1 has put me in that position and need to think with my head and not my heart. Tierney - AWB could be my first transfer.

    I’ve always picked Salah over Mane but believe Mané could flourish this season.

    I’m also keen to see if Fraser Forster returns and his value.

    Any advice/tips/chat/constructive criticism welcome.

    Cheers all, enjoy your day.

    isn't anyone concerned about Kane's recent injury record. If he were to get injured again, it would give Son an opportunity to play upfront again. Alli is also one to monitor

      It would also allow you to swap Kane for any striker in the game.

    Please could I have a few opinions people to RMT?

    Guaita (Ryan)
    Egan - Doherty - T Silva (Bednarek - Vinagre)
    Son - Salah - Willian - Ludstram (Stephens)
    Kane - Werner - Mitrovic

    Thank you!

    James, Tierney, Robertson,

    Aubameyang, Salah, Son, Ceballos(or a better 5.0?)

    Wilson, Jiminez, Ings
