Football Index: Can form and fixtures make new-look Everton a good bet?


Sponsored by Football Index


Into week two of my adventures in the land of Football Index (FI) and I’m learning some lessons already.

Just as a reminder, FI is, in essence, a stockmarket where people use real money to bet on footballers, with the value of these shares then going up or down based on market forces.

Players can also win money on these shares through a series of dividends, which are individual pay-outs based on match day performances, positive coverage in the media and consistent excellence across each month of action.

And the shares I’ve bought in the last week or so have certainly been on a few… journeys recently.

My pick for last week, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, is a great case in point. The Arsenal man enjoyed a decent Gameweek 1 at Fulham, scoring his first goal of the season in a 3-0 win.

That was particularly pleasing for his massive Fantasy Premier League (FPL) ownership – close to 50% now – as he was the captaincy choice of many, so brought in double points.

Over on FI, his performance score of 127 – based on a wide range of metrics, including goals scored, chances missed etc – was well above his average of the past few months, but not good enough to win extra cash from a match day dividend when the likes of Mohamed Salah are hitting hat-tricks and recording a performance score of 358.

Not that dividends and Aubameyang haven’t been a success for me so far. Ongoing contract talks and his solid performance at Craven Cottage have meant he’s been in the news consistently, thus winning me media dividend pay-outs.

I mentioned last week that the Arsenal man was going to be a longer-term bet, and that’s just as well based on his yo-yoing share price.

I bought into him at £2.22 a share. That peaked at £2.53 the day before the season started, and at the time of writing, he’s trading at £2.27. One to hold, especially with the dividend opportunities that await in the Europa League.
To add to a positive week, Aubameyang has just signed his new three-year contract, so was able to win media dividends through this breaking news.

As for my other two bets, Callum Wilson’s share price is (currently) plenty higher than when I bought in and he’s also won me the most in dividends, while Leeds man Rodrigo’s key moment in the 4-3 madness at Anfield was to give away the penalty that won Liverpool the match.

So well done Rodrigo, you mugged me off there. But he’s another one I’ve bet on for the long term, so I’m maintaining a Zen-like calm. For now.

Overall my portfolio is up, so Gameweek 1 has been a qualified success.

This Week I Am Mostly Buying Into… Everton.

One game does not a season make, but the world and their life partner were left very impressed by the Toffees’ away win at Spurs.

James Rodriguez’s debut was a belter and, at the time of writing, he leads the way for Gameweek 1 chances created (five), although it was Lucas Digne who ended up with the assist for Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s winner.

I’m tempted by all of Everton’s attackers, and new man Abdoulaye Doucoure shouldn’t be ignored either – he created four chances against Tottenham, although he had no attempts on goal, whereas James managed three.

The jury is, therefore, out on exactly which Everton player I’ll bet on, but it will definitely be one of them, especially as they’ll be entertaining West Brom next; a team that allowed a Gameweek-high four big chances at the weekend.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men have a great schedule from now through to the middle of December, with their two trickiest matches – a Merseyside derby and Manchester United – both taking place at Goodison Park.

The blessed union of form and fixtures is a beautiful thing in FPL. It’s time to see if the same applies to FI.

    1. 16ShimiC16

      1 month, 6 days ago

      No, theres talk of him being in the squad for Sunday, all depends if get registered in time tomorrow.

      1. Jacky boy
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        He will not surely start this one?
        Maybe gw 3

    2. Noah’s Ark
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I’m not sure, what are the Reguilations over there currently?

      1. nani is michael jackson
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Nice, nice.

  2. bitm2007

    Still no price rises (or falls) for Manchester United and City players despite Bruno and KDB being the two most transferred in players so far this GW (335k and 332k), other players have risen, however. I'm becoming increasing confident that my suspicion that they are price locked until their season starts is correct, it would be useful to those of us trying to take advantage of the fixture swing if thats the case.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I'm pretty sure they are price locked too

    2. Pasqualinho
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Some form of lock looks probable. I assume it will be for a number of days from deadline rather than waiting until they play. 3 days? 7 days? Something else? Who knows. They still may rise in price before GW2 deadline.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Would be a big help

    4. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Point has been raised that a big % of those are on a W/C — could be a factor, but doesn’t really explain Willians rise (apart from value).

      I’m hoping they’re locked till at least sat pm though - chance to see Auba again and how Utd look.

      1. JustSomeGuy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I've often thought that a players previous points/form also helps prices.

        Let's say Salah/Mane had the exact same ownership GW1, Salah 20 points, Mane 2, Salah would need less transfers as his previous points/form show he could/should be a more valuable player.

      2. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        It could possibly be WC's or that KDB and Bruno are priced much higher than the players who have risen in price so far.

        1. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Yeah, like I say, high price would go some way to explain Willian’s rise (and not theirs). Some kind of exponential tipping point.

    5. I am 42
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      imo it's unfair to lock their price when the player transferred out to them don't

      1. I am 42
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I'm not complaining as I do not have bruno and kdb yet

  3. davies
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Vinagre > Saiss

    A) This week
    B) Next week + play Mitchell (mun)

    Would be for -4 either way...

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      B

    2. Noah’s Ark
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      May as well be next week then considering Saiss had City this week

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Depends on:

      How much ITB
      Predicted price rise/ fall for the players involved

  4. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    What are the thoughts on Foden and Mahrez as options this year? Anybody wildcarding this week considering them?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Mahrez was very out of favour towards the end of last season, so would only consider Foden but want to wait and see with him and am going Grealish instead for Gws 2-3

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Out of favour or just rotated?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Didn’t start any of the last five games in the League or Europe

    2. Pariße
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I would consider them but give them time. Martinez is a beast and might rack up saves and Foden, given he gets decent minutes, could be an easy way into a very good team.

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I would hope that Mahrez won't be making any saves!!

        1. Pariße
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Lol didn’t know I had dyslexia.

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Mahrez and Foden are both good options, especially considering their price points. Only issue is nailedness.

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Yeah this is always the issue isnt it. One thing in the game that drives me mad is 1 pointers off the bench. I just wonder if Silva's departure and Foden's increased starts towards the end of last season means he could start most games this season. That said, when he did play, Pep seemed to prefer him on either the left or right side of the front 3 which would then put in competition with Mahrez and Sterling.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Exactly. And Torres muddles the equation more

  5. 1zverGGadeM
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    I'm just logging in to say something special:
    "THIAGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!"

    Thank you very much, Her Jurgen!

    1. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      You're still finishing 3d...

      1. 1zverGGadeM
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Really? If we are finnishing 3rd, then you must be in relegation zone, pal 😉

    2. Deth
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Great signing! He is the perfect CM for Liverpool/ any top side. A very unique footballer

      1. 1zverGGadeM
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Absolute ledge, indeed 🙂 Thanks!

      2. tokara
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        i was watching him video, omg so much flair. Play like a brazilian. i am dumping my united shirt for pool lol

    3. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Is he any good though?

      1. Berbs
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        He's literally the best CM in Europe

        1. gooberman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Says who? He's obviously not better than KDB.

          1. Berbs
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            KDB is an AM and undoubtedly the best midfielder in the world

          2. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            CM.. not CAM

          3. Firmino
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            KdB is AM

    4. Sergeant Garcia
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Still only 29... and Liverpool bought him for a snap. Brilliant!

    5. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      YES! Did not know until know. Great news finally from transfer side!

  6. Knallie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Lots of decent 5.0 defender options out there.. Where can I find 0.5m to upgrade KWP to a 5.0 defender?

    Ryan (Steer)
    VVD / Saiss / KWP / Justin (Ferguson)
    Salah / KDB / Bruno / Jorginho (Bissouma)
    Vardy / Martial (Brewster)

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Vardy to JImenez?

    2. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Jorge. How much is he? 5.5 at a guess. To soucek?

      1. Whiskerz
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Oh hes only 5. Nvm then

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Vardy downgrade. Next week but.

  7. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Mo (C)?

    1. 1zverGGadeM
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Really tempted, to be honest with you, but still on Auba(c) ... for now 🙂

    2. KGFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Between Mo or Martial for me.

    3. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Auba for me. It’s as plum as it gets.

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Fernandez looks just as plumb

        1. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Yeah, but something itchy about Palace first game. Dunno.

        2. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          (He’s my (vc).)

        3. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          guaranteed penalty

        4. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Is it plumb, or plum? Haha.

  8. Alonso's Ball
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    I had Ayling and Ryan, but after watching Brighton, do you think Lamptey and Meslier Might get more points?

    1. Noah’s Ark
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      It’s possible. I think Lamptey may earn more attacking returns than Ayling and Ryan more cs than Meslier.

    2. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Swings and roundabouts. They’re both going to concede a bunch - so CS is pot luck. Leeds arguably going to score more + Ayling will be involved.

    3. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      you have the right 2 imo

    4. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Yes

    5. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Yes. Meslier should get more save points. And Lamptey more attacking returns.

  9. Noah’s Ark
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Hi folks, any advice would be appreciated on my team below. Players I have issues with are Dier, Bertrand, Pereira and slightly on Havertz.

    Meslier
    Shaw, Egan, Dier*
    Auba, Rashford, Havertz*, Pereira*
    Werner, Martial, Wilson

    McCarthy, Soucek, James, Bertrand*

    Should I be changing one of the 5m defs to Saiss? Havertz to James? Pereira was a bad pick, WBM look terrible.

  10. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Which scores more?

    A) Auba (c) (WHU)
    B) Bruno (CPA) and KDB (wol)

    1. KGFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      B

    2. what's my name
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      tough two better than one but you know what Aub is capable of

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        A) is Auba (c) and Bruno
        B) is Bruno (c) and KDB

        1. Whiskerz
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          A

        2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          A

    3. Pariße
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      If B is two players then probably them but that seems a bit unfair now.

      1. Pariße
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Oh, captain Auba, probably still them as the chances of blanking are divided.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I cancelled out the common denominators

    4. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      A

  11. Klopp it
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Thank I'm sorted on my wildcard now, how's this

    Martinez
    Coleman, Castagne, taa, saiss
    Salah, James Rodriguez, kdb, klich
    Werner, martial

    Bench, nyland, jorginho, Mitchell, brewster

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Similar structure to mine.

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Looks nice.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Prefer Richarlison and Jimenez to Werner right now but solid otherwise

    4. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      It’s what I would do a part from Werner - I think I’d get Jimi for their run.

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Werner is more explosive, keep.

        1. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          We don’t know that - and could be sidelined. I have him, just sure I’d put him back in for a few more week if I was on a W/C

      2. Klopp it
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Then iv no Chelsea cover bar jorginho, and is that a wise move, there bound to be good this year, I would like jimenez tho

      3. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Do you think Jimmy has a higher ceiling than Werner though?

        Werner probably a captain option where as Jimmy rarely gets 10+.

        1. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          No way I’m captaining Werner yet with Auba, KDB, Salah and Fernandes as options.

          1. Limbo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            And the 1mil you can upgrade MF

          2. The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Not worth having then.

    5. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Good. I will consider Podence.

    6. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Very similar to mine gone Sterling over DeBruyne and stuck between Pod and Klich

    7. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Jorginho to a 4.5
      KDB to Auba

  12. KGFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Looks like Bale to Spurs will happen tomorrow.

    What would his signing mean for Spurs?

    1. Kane is better or worse?
    2. Son is better or worse?
    3. Bale will be the best go-to option for Spurs?

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Between A or B for me.
      From those two, I'd say B

  14. Werner Bremen
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Will KDB rise till saturday, what do we think?

    1. Pariße
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Probably yes

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Think the Manc boys are locked

    3. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      depends if he's price locked.

  15. Your Man With The Hair
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    £11m for Bale?

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      9-10

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Will this mean we need 3 midfield premium spots now?
        Salah,Mane, KDB,Sterling,Aubamayang,Bale,Bruno,Rashford to choose from.
        Or just two with a Chelsea player.

        1. tokara
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          pls dont put trashford with these premium mid

          1. The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            His price warrants his inclusion. Maybe should have included Son as well.
            Anyway Rashford isn’t a terrible pick. Would prefer Martial and Bruno ahead of him though.

        2. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Pulisic to be outscored by how much by that lot?

          1. The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            The only thing stopping Pulisic will be his fitness record.
            A player to jump on and off for sure.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      10m

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      10m is my guess

    4. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      9/9.5 at max

    5. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Overpriced if that is the price.

    6. Pariße
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Might actually be 12 considering his FPL history and his goal to game ratio at Tottenham.

      1. Pariße
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Sorry Real*
        But now I see the rest would give him 9m, so maybe 11m would be it yes.

    7. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      £10.5-11

    8. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      9m

      1. southernrocker1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        10+ easily

      2. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        No way he’s the same as Son

  16. olidooley
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Havertz owners....

    Keeping?
    Selling for Hames?

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Selling

      1. southernrocker1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Keeping so I can upgrade to Fernandes next GW rather than Rodriguez

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Holding one anyway and if rest of team looks ok this week may hold for GW3 too. Wasn't a short term selection theoretically.

      Rodriguez looked great but not convinced yet by him in FPL.

    3. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      keeping. Will want 2 chelsea for their run. Will move to pulisic if he still looks poor next game and pulisic is back in the team

      1. Boly Would
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Like this idea

    4. Boly Would
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Holding.

  17. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Good chance Werner's leg will be live by GW2?

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I would think so. Lampard will never tell us

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Yes but Lampard might want to keep Klopp in suspense

  18. tibollom
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    hey guys, is my team G2G with captain and bench? Appreciate your feedback, hesitating between mo auba and martial for cap.

    MCarthy
    TAA Justin BDavies
    Auba(c) Salah Son ASM Stephens
    Martial Werner

    Nyland, Taylor, Davis, Ferguson

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      G2G

      1. tibollom

    2. The Knights Template

      Arise, Sir Tibollom! G2G

      1. tibollom
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        ahah thanks mate.. so sticking with auba as C rather than Tony....

    3. Boly Would
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I like Auba captain this week.

    4. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Absolutely

  19. GOATMEAT
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Which one of these should I play this week?

    a) R. James (LIV (H))
    b) Taylor (LEI (A))
    c) Bissouma (NEW (A))

    1. Kannbury
      1 month, 6 days ago

      c

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      A - could pick up an assist

    3. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      A for potential upside

      1. GOATMEAT
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Cheers all. James would be my pick, just not sure he will start? Though after last game I think he should...

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Suspect Chelsea will line up as below

          GK
          Azpi Silva Zouma
          James Kova Kante Alonso
          Mount Giroud Werner

    4. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      A

  20. Ask Yourself
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Son on -92 🙁 do we think he survives the next 2 days before a drop 🙁

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      No chance

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Highly doubt it

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      He will drop.

    4. Kannbury
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Will probably score a couple and go straight back up again.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Nope.

  21. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Havertz,Davies to James Rodríguez,Digne for a hit? Or just make the first part of the move with FT?

    1. tokara
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      not sure if everton can keep cs. WBA is attacking.

  22. The Wogmeister
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Any idea how much Bruno's price will change by?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Don’t think it will until GW2 deadline has passed

    2. JustSomeGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Question is a little vague.

      A player can only increase/decrease by 0.1m each day, to a total of +/- 0.3m in a single gameweek.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Remember when Auba went up 0.6 across 6 days?

        1. JustSomeGuy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 6 days ago

          No, I don't think I've ever seen more than 3 changes in a single gameweek. did all 6 of those days fall in one gameweek?

          This is only my second season, so maybe it's changed since then, but I use FPL Statistics as much source, and I trust it.

    3. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Depends if he's price locked, either way, it's looking increasingly unlikely that it will be more than 0.1m before the GW deadline.

  23. Captain Knackered

    Opinions would be welcome greatly!

    Ramadale
    TAA Robertson Shaw Justin
    Salah(vc) Havertz Auba(c) Pereira

    Button James Bissouma Davies

    Havertz to JRodriguez or hold or another visable option?

    1. gunnerboy
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Jrod

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Rodriguez

  24. olidooley
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    A save, a transfer or a hit?

    McCarthy
    TAA Robbo Shaw
    Salah Auba Havertz JWP Soucek
    Werner Mitrovic

    Peacock-Farrell Taylor Davis Mitchell

    1) save
    2) Havertz TO Hames Rodríguez
    3) Havertz and Robbo TO Rashford and Digne (-4)

    1. gunnerboy
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      3

    2. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1

    3. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      3 get Coleman better value and bank 1m

    4. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      3

  25. PogBruno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Can anyone tell me, what settings to change in the classic league to allow new players to join after the GW1 deadline, as it's showing the league is closed with current settings.

  26. Noah’s Ark
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    This is going to be a very interesting/difficult year! Bale coming back also. Wealth of amazing options in attack that will all do good. Looking forward to it.

  27. gunnerboy
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Does anyone know when the Chelsea press conference is?

  28. flippetyflop
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    I've seen Ben Crellin mention that there may be a BGW GW 18 and a DGW GW 19 for the fixtures missing from GW1.

    What's the best way to plan for this?

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Wait for fixtures

    2. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Too far ahead and we don't know how FPL will manage it if this rumor is even true.

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 6 days ago

      The teams will be determined before GW5, so hold off on planning until then. Or at least keep your WC

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      By forgetting about it until GW10 at the earliest...

    5. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      BGW GW 18 and a DGW GW 19 is inevitable due to a split GW18 (with 5 of the GW18 fixtures due to be moved until after the GW19 deadline). It's possible that the GW1 fixtures will come into it as well, but there are other GW's when they could be played.

    6. JustSomeGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Not wasting a WC.

  29. Scotty84
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Which is the best 4.5 mid for season hold currently looking at Alzate or Bissouma? Doesnt seem to be many if any other options.

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Bissouma

    2. Scotty84
      • 1 Year

      thank you kindly.

  30. thomashl
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Pereira -> James Rodriguez?

    Other options (have Martial):

    B) Dier -> Shaw
    C) Pereira -> Greenwood
    D) Vinagre -> Lamptey
