What Spurs’ pre-season friendlies mean for their FPL attacking assets so far

Fantasy Premier League managers have now had the chance to watch Spurs on three occasions ahead of the new season – so what have we learned?

Jose Mourinho’s men come into 2020/21 with one of the most appealing set of fixtures, so interest in their attackers has been high.

Making sure we are invested in the right assets is important, so I have assessed some of the key talking points from pre-season, using some information from 2019/20 and Project Restart to back it up.

TopMarx Fan of Fantasy Football and Monty Python. "Archimedes out to Socrates, Socrates back to Archimedes, Archimedes out to Heraclitus, he beats Hegel. Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.”

    1) Robbo, ings
    2) Doherty, Werner

    Which one would you choose (own TAA)

    1. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 hours ago

      2 for me

    2. OneMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      2.

    3. Sanchit

      1

    I’m playing the FPL draft game this year. What would you change in my pecking order?

    1. Salah
    2. Auba
    3. KDB
    4. Manè
    5. Sterling
    6. Fernandes
    7. Werner
    8. Aguero
    9. Kane
    10. Vardy
    11. Rashford
    12. Son
    13. Jimenez
    14. Martial
    15. Trent
    16. Ings
    17. Pulisic
    18. Greenwood
    19. Richarlison
    20. Robertson

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Trent above Werner imo.

    2. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 hours ago

      Robbo and Trent higher for me

    3. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 hours ago

      Would put Trent in top 5

    4. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 hours ago

      I would rank Pulisic and Greenwood higher, then again a draft is different from “value” players in the normal game.

    5. pingissimus

      TAA higher

      Best defender by a distance. No captaincy puts less weight on mids. TAA was 4th highest scorer last time I believe. Should be well up the list.

    6. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Trent & Kdb will both come in the 1st spot ... then Martial in the top 10 too

    7. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I'd keep Trent and Robbo a lot higher.
      Reason : I think there will be a huge difference between and 10th highest scoring def.
      But for Midfielders you have a lot of choices so that won't be a huge difference

    Not sure if it's because the last season finished so recently, and we all had a high TV, but every draft I do at the minute, regardless of formation, feels like it's one player short of being a good team.

    1. JURGENAUT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 4 hours ago

      What was your TV last season?

      1. Hairy Potter
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 4 hours ago

        Over 105 in the end IIRC, plus also had bargains like Greenwood at the end.

        I'm sure it's probably the same the start of every season, but just feels more acute this year with the season feeling like it only finished a few weeks ago.

    2. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 hours ago

      It’s the same at the start of every season it means the pricing is about right. I had about 107 towards the end of the last season and then you can pretty much have the 11 you want. Trying not to chase TV as much this year but it sure helps rank rise at the end of the season when chips come into play.

      1. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        But all the players you want would have increase by around .5 to .6 and collectively around 6-7 million?

  4. Albrightondknight

    Two questions following the Charity Shield
    A. Is TAA a real doubt to start GW1
    B. Is Martinez a real option at 4.5

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      1. England duty before will clear up.
      2. Maybe.

      No and No

        3 months, 3 hours ago

        Definitive answer that’s what I like. As long as you are right of course 🙂

  5. Will J 256

    Which two do you prefer ASM and Justin or Ritchie and B Davies?

    1. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 hours ago

      The latter but I am not sure if Ritchie would be in the starting xi this season. Probably one to monitor

      Hi everyone?
      who is on corner and freekicks for spurs

    • reason17
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Have pre-season games given us any reason to keep or sell son?

      1. korbendallas82
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Maby not, just boiling down to Son alone, but i think Alli can be good to start the season with.

        1. korbendallas82
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          since i think Spurs will do well from the start. And Alli being 1 M cheaper.

          1. Hakim Ziyech
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Yeah... Son> Alli & use the extra 1.0 elsewhere. Alli scores in most match day 1 fixtures. A very good record from the last 3 seasons which he started

    • El Fenomeno R9
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 hour ago

      Read some replies ''dont double up on Saints defense'' in this case McCarthy + Walker-Peters.

      I look at GK in isolation,i think McCarthy would do better than Ryan and would pick Walker-Peters anyway.

      My question is,does it matter?

    • Whits
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      PICK ONE. LET'S SETTLE THIS DEBATE

      A. SON
      B. KANE

      1. OneMan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Both. Or Kane and Alli.

      2. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Son, upgrade to Bruno ASAP

      3. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        B

    • Tashi Tshering
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Can anyone suggest me some good 4m defenders and keeper for bench warmer and rotation options?

        1. Johnny Rambo
            2 months, 18 days ago

            There’s a left back from Palace called Mitchell who has a good chance of starting. Not guaranteed though
            One of the 2 villa 4m price keepers will start as Heaton is injured.

        2. Johnny Rambo
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Struggling to choose between
            A) B.Davies, Son & Kane
            B) Saliba or Lascelles, Salah & Ings

            Rest of team is this:
            McCarthy Nyland
            Justin Gomez Egan KWP
            Auba, Greenwood, ASM, Jota (wolves)
            Werner, Mitrovic.

            What’s reckon?
