Why I’m being patient with my FPL transfers after a disappointing Gameweek 1

Fantasy Premier League managers should exercise patience, even after a difficult Gameweek 1 for some.

It can be easy to make rash transfer decisions after one round of matches, but, if I do transfer anyone out, I will be doing it after much consideration in the cold light of day, and ensuring the change is made after upcoming midweek matches.

The gap between the first two Gameweeks is one of my favourite times of an FPL season. Blank Gameweek clubs aside, we now have a full set of data from the first round of fixtures, as well as a first look at the teamsheets for each club.

That has given us more information to rely on in terms of owning the right £4.0m defenders and £4.5m midfielders, as well as the right premium assets. 

At this stage, it would be very easy to panic. There are several big decisions to be made, even after just one Gameweek in the history books.

As I write this, Mohamed Salah (£12.0m) is owned by 33.9% managers worldwide, 66% of them are perhaps wondering how to fit the Egyptian King into their squads, or how to hold their nerve for one more week – and there is the return of both Manchester clubs to contend with.

Meanwhile, there were many in the Fantasy community planning to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m) ahead of Gameweek 3, but his goal and Arsenal’s performance at Fulham could make such a move harder than some might have imagined. Up next, the Gunners face a West Ham side that looked off-colour against Newcastle, so Aubameyang could conceivably be heading into Gameweek 3 on the back of two decent scores.

With so many of the dilemmas featuring the most expensive players in the game, Aubameyang, Salah and the Manchester assets, I am expecting chaotic FPL transfers this week, with plenty of price changes.

Ahead of Gameweek 2, the market comes into its own as managers make early moves to bring in players and avoid price rises. 

On Saturday, 10,000 brave souls sold Salah before he had even kicked a ball against Leeds. A further 1,000 of them jettisoned him during the game itself, an outing in which he scored a hat-trick and registered a 20-point haul. 

By half-time at Craven Cottage, Aubameyang was the sixth-most transferred-in, as well as being the third-most transferred-out player. Elsewhere, Son Heung-min (£9.0m) had suffered the loss of 3,000 managers by the time Crystal Palace hosted Southampton Saturday, despite not playing until the following afternoon.

A lot of this early chopping and changing of other managers does make it hard to stick to your strategy. In such circumstances, it is easy to second-guess yourself constantly, worried about being priced out of your must-have transfer.

There is no way to win FPL, or indeed lose it, during the opening couple of Gameweeks… but you can destroy your strategy by panicking and overthinking. 

The whole of pre-season was spent formulating a team that we believed would be the right one for the beginning of the campaign, not just for Gameweek 1. 

Players such as Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m), Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m), Sadio Mané (£12.0m) and Danny Ings (£8.5m) are not, all of a sudden, bad options because they blanked in Gameweek 1. These are the sort of players who showed last season that they can often return points.

Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) is a prime example of how luck can play a part in Fantasy. He managed just three penalty box touches at West Bromwich Albion, two of which were spot-kicks, which he converted. The Leicester man did not pass the eye test at all, yet he ended up as one of the highest-scoring forwards of the Gameweek. Sometimes the luck is with you, as was the case with Vardy owners in Gameweek 1, and sometimes it’s not. This trend will continue to oscillate throughout the course of the season, so do not be too easily disheartened. Premium assets are expensive for a reason and luck can turn in a heartbeat.

As for myself, owning Salah and Aubameyang for this opening weekend was a good decision; the rest of my players were complete let-downs. 

Like many of you, I am tempted to remove some players who failed to deliver in Gameweek 1. I could switch Che Adams (£6.0m) to Patrick Bamford (£5.5m) or Saint-Maximin to Daniel Podence (£5.5m), for example. However, these sorts of rash transfer decisions, based only on frustration and data from just one match, nearly always do more harm than good in the long-term.

During the build-up to Gameweek 1, I had a plan for my transfers and I intend to stay true to it. My FPL management style is the opposite of an upside-chaser. I am loyal to my FPL assets, I like to hold and roll transfers and give myself as much thinking time and data as possible to make my decisions with. 

Between now and the Gameweek 2 deadline, we have EFL Cup matches for Newcastle, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, West Brom, Fulham, Southampton, Leeds, Everton, Sheffield United, Wolves and Brighton – and Spurs are in Europea League action too. 

As far as I am concerned, each of these is another chance to evaluate a team and the busy schedule is another reason to wait until Thursday or Friday before making my transfers.

These midweek fixtures could all throw up potential injuries that could force FPL managers into another transfer, or even an unwanted points-hit if moves have already been made. I hate doing this, so I will remain as patient as possible.

But just because I want to take this approach with transfers, does not mean I won’t be making any at all. At this stage, I am not ruling out changes for Gameweek 2.

FPL lessons learned as Martial and Rashford outscore Fernandes

I planned to start the season with a Manchester United asset on my bench so that I was ready for their Gameweek 2 match against Crystal Palace. However, in the build-up to the Gameweek 1 deadline, there were doubts around Marcus Rashford’s (£9.5m) fitness, Bruno Fernandes‘ (£10.5m) potential need for quarantine, as well as uncertainty surrounding Mason Greenwood (£7.5m) in light of an ongoing Jadon Sancho transfer saga, and the youngster’s antics while on international duty with England. The number of unknowns surrounding Manchester United assets meant I did not feel comfortable deciding who to own a whole week ahead of their opening game of the campaign.

Coupling this dilemma with the high ownership of other similarly-priced assets convinced me to go with Son for a home meeting with Everton. This was a decision which, on paper, felt like the right one. Spurs had not lost a Premier League match against Everton since December 2012. Well, now the Toffees’ last victory against them came as recently as… last weekend. Even though Son has previously represented a viable investment, his wider role in Jose Mourinho’s team continues to disappoint the South Korean’s Fantasy owners, just as it did during Project Restart.

That said, Son was always in my team as something of a cash-cow, ready and waiting to be upgraded to a Manchester United asset at some point. Is Gameweek 2 too early to pull the trigger on such a move? This was something I was happy to consider before kick-off on opening day, on reflection, I am even happier to do now. But with so many players failing to impress in Gameweek 1, the difficulty comes in deciding who my priority transfers are.

'Out of position' Zaha scores as £4.0m defender Mitchell aids Palace clean sheet

Crystal Palace surprised me in their 1-0 win over Southampton. They were stronger defensively than we saw at the end of last season, Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m) is playing up-front as an out-of-position FPL midfielder and new signing Eberechi Eze (£6.0m) impressed me when he came on for a nine-minute cameo. 

But I am making sure I remember this: all of my potential moves will be on hold until after midweek action. The last thing I want is to use a transfer, only to see someone else in my squad injured in the EFL Cup or Europa League.

    morning DZ.

    How did Chelsea play earlier? esp popular Chelsea assets

    1. ZimZalabim
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      werner was decent

      Havertz looked rusty but thats expected after only 4 days of training.

      James was good, scored a craker.

      1. seewhyaxe
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        thank you.

  4. Joggers Nipple
    • 11 Years
    9 days, 3 hours ago

    Anyone watch the Chelsea game and have feedback on Havertz?

    Would like to wait a week and see him vs Lpool and see if Pulisic about but could be priced out of Alli (dont ask) to CH mid this week

    1. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 3 hours ago

      Not great, bit sluggish and off the pace. But he's coming into a new team in a new league.

      I think a lot will be removing for Man U mids if I'm honest.

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        Cheers, going Ings to Martial this week.

        If Alli doesnt look like falling will hold off on a CH mid for a week

    2. BrooklynGooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Seemed a bit anonymous. Glad I did not get. A lot of owners selling already.

      1. Joggers Nipple

        Thanks

  5. Bruno Commando

    Is Recce James nailed?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year

      I wish. If only...

  6. davies
    • 6 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Who would you rather play every week?

    A) Ayling/Dallas
    B) Taylor

    1. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Neither, but Taylor if must.

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      b cause if it Burnley.

  7. KINGS
    • 1 Year
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Son due for price drop next?

    1. ChuckN
      • 10 Years
      9 days, 51 mins ago

      It appears that way. Even though I scored a decent 67 without Salah this feels an opportune time to WC before Utd/City assets push out of reach. I have 4 players in danger of dropping as well.

    2. duststorm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      maybe tmr.. based on price predictor...

  8. Sourabh
    • 4 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Keep Kane or sell for Martial, Spurs' fixtures is too good.

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Keep if you dont own Son too.

    2. waldo666

    How does everyone feel about Hames as a FPL pick?

    1. Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 19 hours ago

      i prefer barnes and 0.5 coins

  11. Nabs Kebabs
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Don't think Werner is as good value as Jimenez.

    1. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Yeah, one GW is a huge sample size.....

    2. Sadio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Agreed, however.

      Price wise, Martial Jimmy and Wilson seems the best bet.

      Martial to Watkins will be a great option come GW6 to push more funds into midfield and possibly into the Trent/Robbo double up.

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        Jimenez season keeper for 8.5m imo

        1. COK3Y5MURF
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          9 days, 2 hours ago

          This is nonsense. He wasn't a season keeper last season at 7.5, so why would he be at 8.5? The term season keeper is so overused

          1. ChuckN
            • 10 Years
            9 days, 50 mins ago

            Yes he was. 180+ points for 7.5. Are you joking?

        2. tokara
          • 6 Years
          9 days, 48 mins ago

          Yes i agree, always enjoy having him.

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        Bit optimistic I think on Wilson there I think

        I'd have Bats as the much better choice than atkins GW5. PL experience and knows the team and already has rapport with Zaha up top. Amazing fixtures too. Tasty ppg

        1. ChuckN
          • 10 Years
          9 days, 48 mins ago

          I went with Wilson GW1. Will be nailed, focal point of their attack, criminally underpriced, great attacking threats behind him. He looks the pick of the 6.5 and under FWD assets right now.

  12. Feedtheyak
    • 10 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Struggling between Havertz to Greenwood or Werner to Martial

    I guess the real question should be Greenwood Richarlison Werner or Havertz Martial DCL for GW3.

    1. Thoughtopsy
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      I'm on this aswell, currently thinking Werner to martial but do I need to do it when I already have Bruno?

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      if you have to i guess the 2nd one based solely on it doesnt have Richarlison in it

      1. Feedtheyak
        • 10 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        Not a fan?

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 11 Years
          9 days, 2 hours ago

          Would prefer some of the 6.5 options over him

  13. TheDragon
    • 2 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Werner yellow flagged - is there actually an issue?!

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Yes, he recived a knock but should be fine for pool.

    2. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      See Fat Frank tweet above. Dead leg by all accounts.

    3. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Nah no issue, will be fine for next game

  14. KING KOUNDER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    DZ, whom to shift first Alli or Pulisic?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Alli

    2. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Alli if we are going on the first weekend. TOT didn't gel well. On saying that Pulisic has been injured so keep tabs on that one.

    3. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Alli (owner as well)

    4. KING KOUNDER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Thanks all, Alli it is then.

  15. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year

    Werner flagged for dead leg... didn’t see the game do we think it’s nothing?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Just seen the comment above, all good

    2. HUATSHOOTER
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      yes will play against liv.

  16. Jafalad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Is anyone doing the Upsiding and tempted to shift Salah to KDB/Bruno?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Very tempted, for a hit as well

      1. Jafalad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        I suppose the strategy covers the hits with the bigger returns esp if captaining. Going without UTD assets seems a dangerous strategy at present.

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          9 days, 2 hours ago

          Won’t be captaining United next week either as I have Auba, but I think Bruno and Martial surely return more than Salah and Antonio who have tough fixtures

          1. Jafalad
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            9 days, 2 hours ago

            Yep agreed. I am tempted to give it a go and see how I go given Laterz's success with it.

    2. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Downsiding?

      1. Jafalad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        Upsiding based on this week's fixtures.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Could get Bruno + Martial for a hit for Salah/Mitro

      1. Jafalad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        Yes, thanks. Another tempting option.

    4. El Fenomeno R9
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 1 hour ago

      Anything involving Salah out is downside

      1. ChuckN
        • 10 Years
        9 days, 47 mins ago

        yep, especially for a hit.

  17. HUATSHOOTER
    • 3 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    hi guys, i cant use a FT to do son to bruno. isit crazy to do a minus 4 for son to bruno as well as werner to richar/dcl?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      It is not crazy but it is too early for this moves, wait at least one more week.

  18. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Do we think Havertz will do better at no.10 than on the right?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Yeah, still needs to get up to speed though.

  19. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 11 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Which combo probably scores better in next 2 and longer term?

    a) Bruno (CRY,bha) + Mitro (lee,AVL) + 4 points

        Haha, that close hey. Didn't watch Fulham but the xG was terrible.

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year

      Have a feeling it is going to be B. Feel like Anthony could finally break the 20 mark this season.

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Next 2 A, long term B. Think I prefer B overall

      Cheers all, a hit or Bruno free look my choices atm.

    5. Slurpy
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      A) and A) lets not get carried away with Hamez just yet

    6. El Fenomeno R9
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 1 hour ago

      Think Bruno is a must and both on pens so A

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years

        Will Fulham get past halfway?

        1. El Fenomeno R9
          • 4 Years
          9 days, 1 hour ago

          Thats tricky,their only target man and talisman so hope to get involved.

  20. Slurpy
    • 5 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Its Son to Rashford this week or hold and make two next week with option of then getting Bruno instead. I'm really not sure.

    1. HUATSHOOTER
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      i am also thinking of this...

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Hold, more info. With all these options around you will probably have only one utd place in your team, so choosing the right player is crucial.

      1. Slurpy
        • 5 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        True I'm expecting a Spurs reaction and Son didn't look terrible and Southampton weren't great.

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year
          9 days, 2 hours ago

          Sonny brace incoming. Classic Spurs. Classic FPL.

          1. Slurpy
            • 5 Years
            9 days, 2 hours ago

            happened both times I took him out last season lmao

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      I have the ability to go Havertz to Rashford straight swap but think I’d regret it as I much prefer Tony and Bruno

      1. Slurpy
        • 5 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        That's fair I just have this inkling that Rashford is going to out perform them at the early part, just a feeling.

  21. vincentwsho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    McCarthy
    Taylor TAA Justin
    Son Auba Salah ASM
    Ings Werner Mitro

    Steer Bissouma Mitchell Ferguson

    Anything to do with this lot? Or bank the FT?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Pretty much my team, with 0 in bank, Son or Ings are easiest to downgrade.

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      If you had .5 Ings to Martial would be nice

    3. El Fenomeno R9
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 1 hour ago

      I would hit that Son + Ings > Bruno + DCL before both rise

  22. HUATSHOOTER
    • 3 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    guys, is justin from lei nailed? even when pereira is back, will justin still start?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      If he plays like yesterday he could stay in first team even after Pereira returns.

    2. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      No guarantees, might play in a back 3.

  23. HUATSHOOTER
    • 3 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    FT werner to martial?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Leeds managed 3

      1. HUATSHOOTER
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        but i have salah taa werner. so keep?

        1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          9 days, 2 hours ago

          You got Werner for 1 game?

          1. HUATSHOOTER
            • 3 Years
            9 days, 2 hours ago

            nope of course but due to so many choices. and with manc and manutd back... tend to overthink haa

  24. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 11 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Looks like KDB & Bruno up tomorrow
    Salah with an outside chance.

    1. chaser123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      You gonna bring them in or ignore this week?

      1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        Bruno tomorrow or ignore.
        Could get Martial + Hamez for a hit instead.
        KDB is GW3 or Sterling.

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      KDB will be annoying ahead of Auba out.

      0.4 ITB is annoying, yes you can go say Dier to an emerging 5.1 def for example but prices you out of so many moves

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        Will force a lot to go for sterling instead which may actually end up being beneficial...

    3. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      9 days, 1 hour ago

      Could be a fair few wcs in there

  25. chaser123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    McCarthy
    TAA Justin Davies
    Auba Salah Alli Soucek
    Werner Ings Mitro

    (Bissouma Vinagre Ferguson)

    A) Alli to JRod
    B) Ings to Martial
    C) Vinagre to Shaw
    D) Both A&B or B&C

    1. HUATSHOOTER
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      i will do A &B

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        Do you have the Vinagre issue too?

        1. HUATSHOOTER
          • 3 Years
          9 days, 2 hours ago

          nope haha

          1. chaser123
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            9 days, 2 hours ago

            Haha not so funny for me!

            1. HUATSHOOTER
              • 3 Years
              9 days, 2 hours ago

              how much did you get for this gw?

              1. chaser123
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                9 days, 2 hours ago

                59 - pretty disappointing. If I had captained salah, wouldn’t have been so bad of course.

                What about you?

                1. HUATSHOOTER
                  • 3 Years
                  9 days, 2 hours ago

                  i got 77 and thanks to recce james and capt salah haa. but sad that son did nothing..actually he play well.

                  1. chaser123
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    9 days, 2 hours ago

                    Nicely done!

                    1. HUATSHOOTER
                      • 3 Years
                      9 days, 2 hours ago

                      but i thinking to sell son.. but not enough funds for rash or bruno

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      A and B might work out well

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        I think they make sense long term!

      2. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 2 hours ago

        In fact, I could do all three for a -8? I would play all three too and bench Soucek as a result. Not sure if I’m knee jerking or actually making good moves there...

  26. King Drogba11
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Will Alli drop this week ?

    Thinking of doing Alli to Klich/Harrison

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      He probably will.

  27. Scratch
    • 11 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Need to shift Saka but only £0.5m itb and no great option there

    Thinking of doing Son & Sake -> James & Foden

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Podence from Wolves? Happy to see him start and Wolves fans I know do rate him. Do ask others about how nailed he is

    2. Jordan.

  28. Chelsea91
    • 1 Year
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Play Werner or James or bench ASM and play both?

    Nyland
    Taa,Robbo,Doherty
    Auba(C)Barnes,Harrison,ASM
    Martial,Werner,Jimmy

    Mc Carthy James Mitchell Mc Carthy(Palace)

    Currently on the above and 0FT.

    1. Slurpy
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 2 hours ago

      Asm's best fixture for a while so I'd play him

      1. Chelsea91
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 22 hours ago

        bench James?

  29. lilmessipran
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    Burning question for this week. Play one out of these two -

    A kwp
    B bissouma

  30. The Man Pastore
    • 6 Years
    9 days, 2 hours ago

    After a disaster GW1, am I G2G for GW2?

    Ramsdale
    TAA Justin Taylor
    Auba Mane Pereira Bowen
    Werner Martial Adams

    Bench: Steer Bissouma KWP Ferguson

    0.0 ITB

    Did Ings to Martial for FT already, anything worth a hit?

    Thank you!
