The best Leeds players to keep on your FPL radar in Gameweek 2

Fantasy Premier League managers got a first look at Leeds United players in a 4-3 defeat to Liverpool in Gameweek 1 – but are their assets ready for mass FPL ownership?

Marcelo Bielsa’s men certainly entertained the neutrals at Anfield with their bold and free-flowing approach, finding the net three times at the home of the defending champions. Not a bad start to life back in the top flight.

To help refine our watchlist of Leeds options, we have taken a look at that match in more detail to get a better understanding of the Whites this season.

    A- What to do with Alli and Davies???????

    B- Is Adams gonna be bench this week end (after 2 games of Saints blanks they could try Long nah?

    1. HugoSimpson2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I'm keeping Davies. Going to get rid of Alli. Haven't decided with who yet. Loads of options around that price point

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

      I've sold Alli for James Rodriguez

    3. Clay Davis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I'm gonna keep Alli this week. His record against Saints is too good to ignore, and the fact Spurs have look very poor without him and that he's fully fit and rested means he should play a part.

    4. Good Times
      • 7 Years

      I sold both..... Got willian and Justin short term picks. Will be wildcarding soon anyway

    Anyone going without Utd and City this week?

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      yes

    2. Drizz ✅
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      GULP

    3. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Might go whole season without them

    4. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Yes, Auba to KDB next week and probably no Man U for a while

    5. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Loads

    6. Good Times
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yep... Short term too many unknowns regarding both.... Can't wait for aguero to hit a hattrick and rip open fpl plans again!

    Excluding the blankers, how accurate has FPLStatistics been so far at predicting rises/falls?

    10% off? 5% off?

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

      Had a few at like 102% last night and none of them rose

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

        Thanks Bubz, and none were blankers?

        Weighing up the risk of Antonio. If he drops it will damage by GW3 WC team, perhaps by more than 4pts...

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

          It was Digne, Vardy and Justin. I pulled the trigger on Vinagre to Digne -4 for similar reasons to you, can't be doing with losing the .1 right now and the -4 should be paid back

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

          They were all blankers

  4. HugoSimpson2

    Best option? - Alli to

    A)Greenwood
    B) Grealish
    C) Foden
    D) Barnes
    E) Other?

    Already have Hames

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      i would get James Rodríguez

      1. HugoSimpson2
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Have him already!

    2. Drizz ✅

      D

    3. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years

      Barnes or Grealish. Fancy Grealish more . Grealish on pens ?

      1. HugoSimpson2
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Leaning towards Grealish myself

    4. Clay Davis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Keep him, thank me later!

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

        What makes you so sure he's a starter ? I'm an owner too so curious, I see he has a good record v SOU though, 5 goals and 5 assists past few years I believe.

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

          I just think Spurs weren't too bad first half against Everton. Since he got pulled they've been dire.

          And the best way for Mourinho to difuse the situation is to simply play him.

          He's fit, rested, played well in the limited preseason and you would hope he'll be fired up to prove himself.

          That said, After parking the bus Mourinho's second favourite thing in life is to cut off his nose to spite his face.

          So, I'm not 100% sure he'll start. Hopeful at best. But I think having lost -0.1 on him i might as well stick as he's a real differential now. Never know, he may haul and start a bandwagon. Stranger things have happened!

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

    Any reason Targett loses his place at LB for Villa? Cash has come in but will definitely play right back? They seem to have 4 right backs now and only one left back so that is worrying me. I guess they just need to move on a few so should be fine. Think he’s a great differential for next two games and better option than Ayling over this period.

    1. Big Hippo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Targett nailed imo, assuming he's fit. Think Taylor started in the cup midweek.

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

        Thanks

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

      I put Targett in last night as my Vinagre replacement. They have NTaylor who is rubbish by all accounts on the books who is a left back so I expect Targett to be first choice.

      If Grealish continues to play on the left Targett could do well as I remember looking at this combintaion last season. There is talk Grealish goes central with some new players coming in which may negatively impact Targett. But hes 4.5m, and for a reason.

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

      Targett is the best 4.5m defender imo

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

        Not sure he’s the best but have made room for a few in my team! So many good options at that price this year. Got Justin and KWP also.

    4. Clay Davis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Cash is RB. Targett is LB. Nathan Taylor is backup LB

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

    If I were to WC in GW3 I think I would like to following front 7:

    Sterling/Salah/Rodriguez/Podence/Greenwood
    Jiminez/Martial/Wilson

    It means losing Doherty & only leaving me 8M for 2 defenders & I already have 2 :-). I could downgrade Greenwood to Fraser & get James & Lamptey, I suppose it depends on how much I want Greenwood.

    It would also leave me with a benching headache potentially with having to bench either Podence or Wilson.

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Podence is far from nailed so your benching headache may not materialise

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

        I have a feeling he's going to be a great option this year, especially if he can keep Jota out of the team & he did look good post lockdown.

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

      I meant front 8 & I meant to say I already have 2 x 4.0 defenders.

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

      I also have Greenwood and Rodríguez (also going Sterling over KDB which I like short term) but the concern for me is the lack of other options outside those two at that price. I am just going with a 4.5 mid instead and will downgrade either player (Greenwood most likely) to Podence if they find themselves out of the team. Then gives me the option to upgrade a defender or striker with that two mil at the same time.

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

    A, B or C folks.

    a) Greenwood (-4)
    b) Hames (-4)
    c) Soucek

    Cheers!

    Ok let’s say hypothetically that son is dropping tonight and you’re WCing next GW and you have 1.5m itb. Would you do son > Bruno -4 to avoid having effectively 0.5m less on your WC budget?

    1. Phlajo
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      no

    2. Zim0
      • 2 Years

      Um yes

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

        This yes is enough for me

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

      no

    4. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years

      No, I"d much rather the 4pts

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

      Yes if you also think Bruno outscores Son by 4 points this week

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Think that's a yes then

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

      The argument that .1 = .5 is moronic in the first place, even more so if you are playing WC

      1. Ask Yourself

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I would do it because I want Bruno for GW2.

  10. owenread

    best 6.0m striker??

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years

      Watkins

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Watkins potentially

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

      Maybe Watkins...

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      spend .5 more

    1. Rodriguez
    2. DLC

    A. Klich
    B. Jorginho

  12. DRP
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Yes or No?? for (-4)

    Alli + Havertz >> James Rodrigues + Rashford/Greenwood

    1. Phlajo
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Just Alli to James for me

  13. bitars
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Wildcard activated, which option do you prefer?

    Martinez (Steer)
    TAA, Digne, Lamptey, AWB, (Mitchell)
    Auba, Salah, Trossard, James, (Bissouma)
    Martial, Richarlison
    0,5 itb

    Martinez, (Steer)

    Digne, Lamptey, Justin, (Siass, Mitchell)
    Auba, KDB, James, Foden, (Bissouma)
    Martial, Richarlison, Jimenez
    0 itb

    Both teams will mean that Aubameyang become Salah/KDB nest GW.
    Second team will switch one of the forwards to Trent after the games against Chelsea and Arsenal.

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

      Prefer second - have a similar set up on my WC

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

      The second option (and your plan) is very similar to my WC squad actually.

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      you mean ...

      TAA, AWB, (Mitchell)
      Salah, Trossard,
      ??? attacker

      0,5 itb

      Justin, (Siass, Mitchell)
      KDB, Foden,
      Jimenez

      the first one maybe

    4. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Salah may rise so I’m holding until the morning just in case..

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

      for me James, Trossard, Foden are risk. ESP James and Foden are risk of rotation them you will waste 6.5m*2. Rodriguez, ASM, Soucek, Bruno, Wilson can be your option to re arrange your team

    6. DandyDon
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Like the Richarlison pick but I’ve gone for DCL and used the extra mil to put in the more nailed Greenwood ahead of Foden. You may be right though.

  14. Warby84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    I currently have James/Keane/Fernandes/Martial

    Although I want to cover a city asset (Sterling) so I’m tempted to downgrade the 2 defenders to (2x4.5 Rotation) Lamptey/Taylor? Other defenders are Trent and Saiss

  15. eririi
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Son to Bruno (-4)?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years

      Not for me

    2. Drizz ✅
      • 8 Years

      would hold

    3. n-doggg
      • 8 Years

      Yep. Will easily make that -4 back over the medium term

    4. Hotdogs for Tea

      yip

  16. Pickle juice
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Would you do the below for the -4 hit

    Son ---> greenwood

    Have no other man utd cover and can't afford Bruno or rash

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      no, Greenwood may not even start

    2. LP1
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Greenwood might not play, not worth it.

    3. wulfranian
      • 4 Years

      Who must sell first?
      A)Vinagre

        Sterling loves an opening game Hat trick!

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

          Has it happened more than once though?

        2. Zim0
          • 2 Years

          Against wolves?

      • Yo Deli Alli
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        GW2 team sorted, started pondering...what sort of price would make Gareth Bale an attractive asset?

        Although fpl towers might well price him far too high, he would be attractive in my mind at perhaps £10.5., especially given the fitness / Mourinho factor / poor form of Spurs and other risks attached, If he is listed as a forward then perhaps £10.00 would make me bite.

        Thoughts?
        Thoughts?

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

          2 goals 2 assists in 16 last year. 7.5m is reasonable, anything more is casual bait

        2. Warby84
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Personally I’m totally off Spurs

          1. Chandler Bing
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            This.

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

          It's not so much the price but the form.

          I think he will be a 10m mid or possibly 9.5 if they are feeling generous.

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

          10 or 10.5 is stupid money. He'll have to be 9 max before I'd consider him.

            He's far from match fit. You'd want to hold off for some time and see how he and Spurs get on before committing.

        Benching headache between C. Taylor, Soucek and JWP. Currently have Taylor benched.

        Playing Saiss, VVD and Egan at the back atm.

        Any advice appreciated!

          I’d bench Soucek. Arsenal’s defence is amongst the most solid, as good as Soucek is arsenal away isn’t his type of game. Leicester looked impotent in attack aside from being gifted the penalties which Burnley won’t do. JWP looked the most influential Southampton attacker vs palace.
          JWP + Taylor for me

        Does anyone think that bruno is not worth it at this price? His stats with no penalties are really average ,rashford and martial have much better stats at cheaper price. Also read somewhere that ole said him and rashford will share penalty duties.

          He is good as a 2nd premium mid but not worth it as the 3rd imo

            I'm with this. He's worth 10.5m, but I'd rather spend more to get Salah, KDB, Sterling, Auba (i.e. two of them) with a sub-premium (JRod or a Chelsea mid when they're firing).

          I think he's wait and see.. There is Van de Beek now in the midfield, so need to know how they will adapt... Martial is the safest option now

          But he'll get those penalties so what's ur point

            You don't buy a player 10.5 only for penalties, he did not score only penalties last season like people may think, he was always well placed in the box also.. I'm saying I prefer to see how they play with Van de Beek before buying

              I was replying to original poster 😛 and yes he had goals and assists from open play too. It's weird people think he only scores penalties

        Thoughts on this WC team?

        Martinez
        Robbo / Digne / AWB / Saiss / Ayling
        Auba / KDB / Greenwood / JRod //Bissouma//
        Jimenez / DCL //Brewster//

        - Auba to Salah in GW3
        - AWB to Chilwell later on
        - Could go to Chelsea easily by downgrading/upgrading one of the 7.5 mids

        Reece James or Saiss

        from GW3 onward

        I use my WC this week and want to plan for a long term, wolves seem to have a better fixture

        Keep Pulisic or transfer out?

        What would you do with a front 3 of Werner, Ings and Adams?

        Nothing in the bank. Anything would be for a hit? Very tempted to stick but Martial and Everton attackers are tempting

          Ings to Martial this week, or to Jimenez the next.

          Any other United coverage? Frankly you can probably live without but Saits aren't looking great.

          I am holding Ings myself this week, as going down the Jimenez route probably

        I'm well mad I was talked out of getting Podence (for ASM) pre-season.

        B***tards! 😆
