Reigning India FPL champion reveals strategy and team for new season

Lateriser, who finished 30th in the world last season, discusses “overthinking” in FPL and reveals his Gameweek 1 team.


This time of the season is a delicate time. I don’t really tinker too much but while I am reading articles and assembling information, the subconscious is working overtime in the background debating every minute decision in our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) team while the conscious is pretending hard to remain interested in the conversation on the dinner table.

I am generally a very decisive manager and normally after about two to three sessions of spaced-out, focused tinkering, I arrive at my team. Just before recording Episode 2 of our new Podcast, The FPL Wire (also available on all podcast platforms), I had one of these long tinkering sessions on Sunday night and the outcome was a team I was really happy with (it involved me not having a single Liverpool attacker but more on that later).

Monday and Tuesday passed and I was convinced that I was there. I even mentioned on the pod that I was feeling good about my team since I was so close to the final piece. Then came yesterday and I happened to watch France’s highlights versus Croatia and watching Anthony Martial (£9.0m) reminded me how much I love this player and that simply put I need him in my team.

When I referred back to my post-season notes that I had scribbled in my little notebook, I found “You Love Tony Gloves” scribbled in there. I hadn’t planned for Tony (except for a lazy afterthought that I’ll do Timo Werner (£9.5m) to Martial in Gameweek 2) until then and had Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m) sitting on my bench Gameweek 1. Panic set in because I know I’m not going be happy with my team until I get him.

Gameweek 32+ Scout Picks focus on Arsenal, Wolves and Man United

This led to me immediately logging on to the FPL website and just not being happy with all the compromises. Suddenly, it all feels imperfect. This happens to most of us (we overthink way too much). Our FPL decisions (at least for me) are constantly evolving in our heads and while there’s panic at first when something strikes you, all you really need to do is put on some earphones, dig in some more (statistics + highlights + articles) and you’ll find that in some time you’ll arrive at a place you’re happy with.

The key to all of this is the earphones. You need to be away from all the noise when you’re ‘Beautiful Minding’ (as my friend Walsh likes to call it) your team and after some time and thought you’ll get there. Yes there will be some sacrifices along the way but mentally you’ll have debated all sorts of decisions and as long as there is reasoning to the team you’re building, you should be okay.

After all of this, I really think to myself: why do we even overthink? The chances of us getting Gameweek 1 right are so slim. But then I see Mark Sutherns, who is possibly the best instinctive FPL manager I know, talking on his new fabulous show “FPL BlackBox” about having a set of rules and filters for his decisions.

In my head, I just went, “Mark, don’t do it because of one rubbish season. You were careless last season. Your strength is your instinct and filtering will just stop you from being naturally instinctive and aggressive”. I might have even DMed him the same. Seems like we’re all just wired to overthink. It’s probably me doing just that with my decision to not go with a Liverpool attacker.

Let me take you through that decision and some other relevant ones while building my Gameweek 1 team.

The elephant in the room is that as of today, I plan on starting without Mohamed Salah (£12.0m) or a Liverpool attacker for that matter. There are two primary reasons for this.

What is FPL Upside Chasing and how can I implement it in 2020/21?

    How would you complete this team?

    A: Salah + Wilson
    B: Son + Ings + 1.0m ITB

      A

    2. AgentRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      I'm currently on A) but your suggestion B) could be the solution to my headache on how to get Martial in

      1. ameisin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Exactly my thoughts!

        My only worry is Son trolling me if he's stuck out wide. Could be golden though.

        1. AgentRed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I'm also worried about Son and considering a Chelsea mid instead. Will go down to the wire on that.

          If I go with A) I'll probably just do Salah > Bruno for my United asset in GW2

          1. ameisin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Yeh I'm settled with everything else. I feel that B is more of a risk but it's more enticing. Last minute decision.

            Good luck mate

    Keita 5.5 is going to be the bargain of the season - you heard it here first...

    1. A Dog Has Its Day
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I heard it somewhere else first

    2. Pukki Blinders

      Keita will be dropped by gw3, you heard it here first...

    3. SwissWavey
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      No, I've heard it before, 3 or 4 days ago. Didn't agree then either.

    4. Derek the Dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      are you mad?

  3. The Vindaloovian

    For Bench fodder...
    A) Gordon
    B) Stephens
    C) Reed

    1. Derek the Dog

      i've got Reed

  4. Mini Mahouse
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    How's this?

    Ryan
    TAA Doherty Saiss KWP
    Bruno Son Auba
    Jimenez Ings Mitrovic

    Button Ayling Reed Bissouma

    Ayling will play for Bruno GW1, and will get Martial in for Jimenez/Ings in GW2 (0,5 ITB).

    1. Werner Bremen
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Ignoring the Chelsea hypetrain I see. I would get one from UTD, and one from Chelsea.

  5. Camzy

    Convenient reminder that Soucek is an unbelievable deal.

    Went back and did stat comparisons between him and the likes of ASM and Armstrong and he butchers them on xG and touches in the penalty area. He might not always be in the opponents' half, but when he is, he's in the box and he's getting good shots on goal.

    He has goals in preseason, headers after ghosting in late to the box, he has a track record of scoring a lot and he's only 5m in a West Ham team that will concede goals which means they will also conversely be forced to attack more.

    An amazing enabler and his recent quarantine stint could end up being perfect because from being a staple in a lot of teams, he's now a differential again with under 7% ownership. Great first GW fixture too if you need cover for MUN or MCI players.

    1. Noah’s Ark
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yeah I have him as my 5th mid. Has to be worth the extra .5 to have him instead of a 4.5mid fodder.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        He's not a 5th mid. He's a 4th mid. A 5th mid doesn't play in like 99% of games. Soucek could cost 6m and I'd seriously consider getting him in.

        1. Noah’s Ark
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Depends on what formation you are playing I guess

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            How about 7th attacker then? Point is, he should be in the team and playing every week.

    2. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Whats putting me off is injury doubts

    3. gauzah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      What do you think about Soucek vs JWP?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Soucek by a mile. That 1m saving is huge.

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Oh yes he is

      Possibly getting an odd looking midfield line up when you look at prices but ....

    5. Derek the Dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Soucek is the one player that has never left any of my drafts

    6. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Only thing stopping me from bringing him in is that he may not start gw1...

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        this

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        He was confirmed available yesterday by a WHU ITK.

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Available yes but is he fit? Hasn’t played any pre season I’m pretty sure

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            You're wrong. He scored in one of their last preseason games.

            A 4-1 win over Ipswich where Haller scored a hat-trick.

          2. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            He’s scored twice in pre season...

    7. JamTart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Totally agree, only thing having me lean ASM is the initial fixtures

    8. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      even better deal at 4.7 😀

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        And a worse one at 5.2m. He scores against Newcastle and he's going up thanks to the casuals that can't read a season ticker.

    9. Dirty Harry
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Those fixtures after GW1 though are tough to swallow.

      1. Y26 Royal
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        This

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        For a fellaini esque type of player don’t think fixtures would affect him tbf

    10. SwissWavey
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I might get bitten but I don't like West Ham this year. Don't like them ever, actually!

    11. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      He's an excellent pick. It's just one nagging question for me - can I stomach playing him regularly?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        If he cost 6m would you feel better about it? Honestly, I think my own answer would be yes lol.

        The price can really skew perception. He's unreal value. And the goal of the game should be to pick up the best value players. You can then stack more big hitters with the cost savings.

        1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I'm a WH fan sadly and he's a superb fpl asset. Even I won't play in gw 6-7 if I go there.

          He will 95% start imo

    12. Jaws
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      You should check Bowen...

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        The 1.5m price difference is significant especially as a percentage of their overall cost. But yes, he is putting up good numbers too. Although Soucek had more goal attempts and more goal attempts in the box than Bowen even then. It's ridiculous how they've underpriced him. He should be at least 6m.

    13. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      How many games would you start him as 4th mid when you consider the awful fixtures?

      Really hope that WHU and NEW fixtures would be changes so I could save 0.5 by having Soucek instead of ASM.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        All of the first 4. It's only 567 that is horrendous imo. I think he's a better deal than ASM. He'll offer more for less.

        1. BobbyDoesNotLook
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Fair enough. Took a second look and first four are not that bad.

          Maybe my question for myself is that should I get Soucek for 352 with ASM or lose ASM and get 0.5 in the bank and having Soucek in 442 (Davis currently my fodder fwd). Those cumulating 0.5s can be lifesavers in upcoming weeks when thinking about moves to Manchester teams etc.

        2. Jon Walter's Hatty

          5th ok they have a great record v Spurs

        3. Annie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          2-4 are not far behind! 3 of the first 5 respective figures last season were blanks.

    14. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      4th mid here

    15. @FPL_Chess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I was on the verge, but you've now convinced me. Nice one.

    16. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Deal breaker for me to allow an Auba/Salah team. Might struggle for the CS point but I think they will be so leaky that they will have to attack and try and win games 2-1, 3-2 etc.

      Using him as a 4th mid might mean making sure your team can handle a 4-4-2 for the hard spell.

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        ...or 4-3-3

      2. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Soucek is my 4th mid. He can be on or off the bench, sharing with my 4.5 def - currently Vinagre.
        He's a terrific player for 5m - my problem is the dysfunctional team he plays for. I can see them bottom of the table going into November and the manager being sacked. At that point Hammers will prob start playing a lot better and Soucek will be exciting.
        For now though, if he's quiet he'll not do any harm on my bench; if the optics and stats look good he plays.

    17. Annie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Doesn't wipe the floor with ASM for that metric, for any oppoent half based metric ASM was better. XGI was the same too, though granted XG better for Soucek.
      Tempting to go with him over ASM for first fixture though and as bad as their fixtures are in the first few, Newcastle don't fair much better.

  6. b91jh

    A) Alli+Kane
    B) Pulisic+Vardy

    Have Havertz if it matters.

    1. Noah’s Ark
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      B for me

    2. SwissWavey

      B for me too

  7. Noah’s Ark
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Final decision that I need to make in my team is:

    A) Armstrong & Wilson
    B) Adams & Asm/Pereira

    What are your thoughts?

    1. Shake n Bake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B

  8. Jönny
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    I see Bissouma appears to be the 4.5 mid of choice... any particular reason? Potter is a bit of a rotation merchant, isn't he?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      He’s a good player. But it is a rotation risk

    2. Shake n Bake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      From memory he was favoured during the restart other than when he wasn't fit. Also got forward more than Stephens

    3. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      I'm considering Ollie Burke at SHU instead. Not sure if he'll be nailed, but the upside could be good.

  9. Shake n Bake
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Pick one,
    A) Ings + Soucek
    B) DCL + JWP

    I really can’t face a Soton double defence. Who goes KWP (very few good 4.5 defenders) or McCarthy (not many good 4.5 GKs either)

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Depends on the alternative

    2. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      KWP

    3. Noah’s Ark
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Johnstone & Button for me but it’s not very exciting.

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Thinking of ditching McCarthy here for double Brighton at 8.5

      Distrust Southampton defence and as you say there are so few halfway decent 4.5 defenders that KWP seems preferable to me.

    5. SwissWavey
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Had the same dilemma. I kept McC just cos I had more alternatives in defence, but they're not great, I admit

    6. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Personally it's whoever rotates with Leeds OK. I'm on Wolves (Saiss or Vin) with Ayling in reserve as things stand.

    7. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Ryan and KWP for me. Rather have the more secured Southampton defender than have Potter roulette.

    8. Root
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Weak

  11. SwissGuinness
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    A tricky one for you:

    Would you go A or B?

    A) Mitrovic + H.Barnes
    B) Calvert-Lewin + Pereira (WBA)

    Same price, both with a Talisman from promoted team (Mitrovic or Pereira).

    1. ameisin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I've gone B. Have a feeling DCL will kick on.

  12. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Ivanovic to West Brom getting close

    1. b91jh
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Should do well with Chris Brunt as fullbacks.

    2. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years

    Keita & Minamino become options soon. Feel it in my plums. But i have cowardly plums so i wont be starting with them.

      It's rotation hell !

    Lads

    RMT, 3-5-2

    McCarthy - Nyland

    TAA - Davies - Vinagre - KWP - Williams

    Auba - Salah - Son - Rodriguez - Pereira

    Werner - Wilson - Brewster

    1. vova
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      looks good, not too sure about Rodriguez to start with.

    2. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I like the Rodriguez pick, he’s on free kicks as well. But may be too early.

    3. Benteke Fried Chicken
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Justin over Vinagre

  15. Puntillimon
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Any thing you’d change?

    McCarthy Matt Ryan
    TAA KWP Tierney Justin Douglas
    Salah(C) auba son ASM greenwood
    Antonio (I fancy him) Mitro Adams

    0.5 ITB

    1. TONY123
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Not bad. But I don't like that all your forwards are in the same price range, makes your team structure very inflexible. And you'll bench a 5.5+ player every week. Also Greenwood might soon not be nailed anymore.

      1. Puntillimon
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        The 6m bracket has so many options.. bats, Wilson, Watkins to that list as well. DCL for a bit more. There really isn’t much in the premium bracket to consider besides Werner and aguero :/ think strategy this season is for Budget Attack and premium mids

  16. TONY123
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    What would you choose?
    A) Salah + Soucek
    B) Havertz + James Rodriguez + 0.5 (spent on upgrading 4.0 def to 4.5 def on bench)

  17. Dosh
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    DCL or Harvey Barnes? Both teams have good fixtures to start.

    1. SwissWavey
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      DCL for me, but only for 4 weeks probably.
      Both are a bit punty though

  18. Corgzzzz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Guys, Who would you start....Harvetz or Pulisic ??

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Pulisic

    2. Derek the Dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I want Puli but Lampard said he'll have to manage his minutes, so have gone with Havertz instead

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Grrrr

      Suspect Puli gets 30 mins only. Frank was coy about saying how he'd deal with the hamstring. Eased in

      Not at all sure Havertz starts either. But think he's the more probable to get 60 mins

    4. Y26 Royal
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I been swapping between the 2! Is it likely Pulisic will be subbed for Havertz or vice versa? Which one gets more minutes? I dunno!!

    5. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Long term I'd like both over Werner but for now that's probably not on.

    6. OptimusBlack
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Harvetz

  19. umerlfc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    At this point, can we be confident Greenwood plays GW2 & 3?

    1. TONY123
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      No.

    2. tibollom
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      no

  20. Hryszko

    Anyone else having any issues with the app on their phones? I'm unable to make transfers or even look at my team on the mobile app, having to do it all on the laptop.

    1. Lev Yashin
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I think it's an AI safety feature designed to protect you from making stupid mistakes.

    2. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Hate the app! Prefer doing everything on my mobile’s web browser, i.e. Safari.

      1. SwissWavey
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Same for me - Chrome here though

  21. the vanisher
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Justin nailed for at least first couple of fixtures?

    1. Werner Bremen
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Think so. I'm betting on it.

    2. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      For the first couple, he should be.

  22. BobbyDoesNotLook
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Is Justin okay for 5 gws or what is the feeling for his minutes for next 0-10 gws?

    1. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Not a long term solution. For me there are better options elsewhere as Leicester are missing some key players.

      1. BobbyDoesNotLook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Who would you have? Almost everyone of those interesting 4.5s are rotation risks/leaving/etc. I have currently Egan, Dier, KWP and Mitchell as 4.0 but considering an upgrade of Mitchell to 4.5 (Justin or someone else).

  23. Bleh
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Final draft, will rotate between a 343 and a 433. GTG?

    McCarthy | Nyland
    TAA | Davies | Lewis | Taylor | Mitchell
    Salah | Auba | Son | Soucek | Bissouma
    Werner | Wilson | Mitro
    1.5 ITB

  24. MartialMatas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    How am I looking?

    Meslier
    TAA Robertson Dier KWP
    Aubameyang Havertz Alli Soucek
    Werner DCL

    Steer Brewster Foden Ferguson

    2.5m itb to get Fernandes in for Alli or Havertz gwk 2

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Really like that plan

    2. SwissWavey
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Looks ok, similar to mine.
      I didn't like Brewster on the bench though so have a weaker defence than you

  25. pundit of punts
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    James Rodriguez to start or not?

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Hope so

      Could be very short of minutes if I go Rodriguez Havertz 🙁

      Getting closer and closer to Vardy Kane Ings.

  26. Lev Yashin
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    I think I'm going Salah over Auba.

  27. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Best 4.5 defender (not Soton). That has a good first GW too?

    Shoot 🙂

    1. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Webster 😀

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Ward 😀

      Just get Ferguson as the 4.0 and you're sorted

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Started Kelly Ward last season on this philosophy and it worked

        Could actually be a 6 pointer there in weeks 1-4 and then it's a golden run. Chelsea and United perhaps suboptimal

        Talk is that defence will be close to full strength quite soon. Well as close to full strength as it ever gets

        Waiting on Roy.

    3. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Lascelles and Justin

    4. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Play Mitchell and go Leeds?

      Vinagre 🙂 if nuno is kind but Justin is a good pick if you want to change later (I don't myself)

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        My advice is go Ryan/Walton and keep kwp

    5. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Justin

      Only need him for gw 1 and 2 possibly gw 4 then he’ll be benched for coady and a spurs defender in a 3/4/3

    6. AgentRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Justin but you need to be prepared to transfer him out in a few weeks when Pereira is back

  28. Klopp it
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Two questions
    1. Dier or Davies?
    2. Ings or dcl?

    1. Bruno BaNani
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Davies and Ings

  29. iati
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    RMT (1m in the bank)
    3-4-3
    McCarthy (Steer)
    TAA, Egan, Davies (Vinagre, Mitchell)
    Auba, Salah, Son, ASM (Bissouma)
    Werner, Mitrovic, Adams
    any suggestions on what to do with the extra 1m?

  30. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Davies and Son vs Doherty and Alli is doing my head in

    Basically my final decision

    1. Derek the Dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Doh and Alli

      1. Derek the Dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        but depends whether you intend to upgrade either Son or Alli in a few weeks to Fernandes or Rashford, in which case it would be easier to do that from Davies and Son

    2. SwissWavey
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Controversial but I'd go Davies and Alli. The extra pennies help but I'd go those two even they were the same price
