Scout Notes

Budget FPL assets shine for Leeds and Fulham but Bielsa highlights lack of creativity

Leeds United 4-3 Fulham

  • Goals: Helder Costa (£5.5m) x2, Mateusz Klich (£5.5m), Patrick Bamford (£5.6m) | Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m) x2, Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Bamford x2, Klich | Joe Bryan (£5.0m), Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m), Kenny Tete (£4.5m)
  • Bonus: Mitrovic x3, Bamford x2, Costa x2

Patrick Bamford (£5.6m) rewarded his growing Fantasy following with a double-digit haul in Leeds United’s second seven-goal thriller of the week.

The forward’s goal in Gameweek 1’s 4-3 loss to Liverpool prompted nearly 365,000 managers to buy him in for the Fulham game.

Seasoned Fantasy Premier League (FPL) bosses, and many a Leeds fan, would have considered the move optimistic at best as Bamford has plenty of previous for missing his fair share of chances.

But the striker struck again on Saturday, finishing with aplomb when released by a Mateusz Klich (£5.5m) pass early in the second half of the win over Fulham.

His boss, Marcelo Bielsa, was quick to play down the side’s eye-catching start to the season:

This won’t be a constant all year. It is very difficult to maintain the efficiency we have had in these first two games. The characteristics of our game is to create goalscoring opportunities. In these two games we have created very little, but we have scored all our chances.

He might as well have been talking about Bamford, who has now scored from two of the three chances he has been presented with this season.

That has tempted another raft of managers to back the striker. He’s currently in the top three transfers-in for a Gameweek 3 trip to Sheffield United and a Yorkshire derby that should be, to use a technical term, proper tasty.

Whether his fine form is sustainable is highly debatable.

FPL has indulged plenty of fine early starters who failed to deliver consistently over a season – Norwich’s Teemu Pukki is the most recent example of that, while Manchester United striker Anthony Martial (£9.0m) is another who hit the Premier League ground running before being reduced to a stagger within a few weeks.

As we detailed in pre-season here, Bamford has never been the most clinical of strikers, missing 34 (77.3%) of the big chances he had in the Championship last season.

For now, however, it would be churlish not to bask in his point-scoring glory. He also had two assists against Fulham, earning a penalty when he was pushed in the back by Joe Bryan (£5.0m) and then setting up Helder Costa (£5.5m) on the break to make the scoreline 4-1 with barely ten minutes of the second half played.

Add on two bonus and the forward ended with 14 points on the day –  a total he shared with Costa as the midfielder opened the scoring when he picked up a loose ball from a corner and smashed it in off the bar with five minutes on the clock.

Costa also earned two bonus points and has now hauled in both matches for his 1.6% ownership.

But spare a thought for the 4.6% with Klich in their squads. He also scored in Gameweek 1 and was on the score sheet against the Cottagers when he rolled home the penalty Bamford had earned.

Such was the madness of the match, a goal and an assist were not enough to bring in any extra points for the Poland international. In fact, the maximum bonus award didn’t even go to a Leeds player at all.

That honour was reserved for visiting striker Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m), who marked his first start of the season with two goals and 12 points.

The Serbia international was a very popular pick heading into the season and the 20%-owned forward was quick to reward his followers when he blasted in a first-half penalty, awarded when Robin Koch (£4.5m) mistimed a slide tackle on Bryan.

He then headed in from a fine Kenny Tete (£4.5m) cross to make it 4-3 with just over 20 minutes left to play.

Fulham’s other goal was a sweet one, with the impressive Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m) playing a beautifully-weighted pass through to Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.5m), who shot across Leeds keeper Illan Meslier (£4.5m) and into the far corner.

Both Meslier and his Fulham counterpart Alphonse Areola (£4.5m) were, unsurprisingly, busy boys on the day and the pair picked up a save point apiece for their efforts.

Two players who were rather less involved were Leeds playmaker Pablo Hernandez (£6.0m), who suffered a groin strain in the warm-up, and the club’s record signing, Rodrigo (£6.0m), who replaced him in the starting line-up.

The striker was peripheral at best playing as a number ten behind Bamford and he was hooked at half-time, although that was more an indication of his lack of match fitness as Bielsa, who has very high standards in that regard, was quick to point out post-match:

I was under the impression that he lacked a bit of energy to show his qualities. I think that has something to do with the physical effort he used against Hull (in the EFL Cup). That’s why I decided to sub him.

The coach also gave an update on Hernandez:

Pablo had a small knock in the warm-up. We don’t think it’s very serious.

Fulham boss Scott Parker had understandably mixed emotions about an away game in which his team had 55% of the possession and scored three goals, but still lost:

We showed some real quality in possession at times. We showed a real impetus and caused Leeds a lot of problems. On the flip side we gave away easy goals today and left ourselves a mountain to climb.

He also made it clear that he will chop and change his side this season:

The players who did not play today are vital and will play a vital part this year. As I showed last year I will make changes for matches that give us the best chance of winning.

Not that Fulham rotation will be a major concern for most Fantasy managers, with Mitrovic by far and away the most likely to be drafted in for a good schedule from now until late November.

As for Leeds, they currently have the dubious honour of being an even worse defensive unit than Fulham, having conceded seven goals to the Cottagers’ six.

But in Bamford, Costa and Klich, they have three in-form and very nicely priced assets who will surely find their way into many FPL teams over the next few weeks.

The Leeds rush might have to wait, however – after that derby in Sheffield, Bielsa’s men will host Manchester City in Gameweek 4.


Leeds United XI (4-4-2): Meslier; Dallas, Cooper, Koch, Ayling; Phillips, Harrison, Klich, Costa; Bamford (Alioski 70), Rodrigo (Roberts 45).

Fulham XI (4-2-3-1): Areola; Bryan, Hector, Odoi, Tete; Reed (Lemina 70′), Zambo Anguissa; Kamara (Kebano 58′), Onomah (Decordova-Reid 58′), Cavaleiro; Mitrović.

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

        Oh and McCarthy but still don’t think you need WC

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

      Would WC: better picks than Adams/Wilson
      Is Auba worth holding for 12 mill?
      ASM injured and worth it even not injured?
      Davis’ place under threath from next week
      Nyland you will loose money on as probably 3rd at avl as Martinez is signed
      Bissouma out next match with red
      How long will Johnson/Mitchell play?

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

        You could maby loose about 1 mill team value if keeping them another week

        1. akhilrajau

          1 month, 2 days ago

          Please check my wc

        Nice input there . Can i have some on my team just below?

      3. akhilrajau

        Wildcard temple .is it worth?

        Martinez
        TAA, saiss, James
        Salah, KDB Rodriguez, Zaha
        Calvert-Lewin, Bamford, Werner

    3. Lalrota

      Auba Maximin Wilson Adams Davies .
      Id wildcard

  2. Lalrota
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Enough reason to WC?

    McCarthy
    TAA Digne Saiss Ayling
    Auba Havertz Alli
    Werner Jimenez DCL

    Tierney Reed Bissouma

    Pick one

    A WC and get more funds in the midfield

    B Auba Alli> Sterling Mahrez(-8) maybe

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

      My immediate reaction was WC but the defence and attack is good as you said earlier.
      Havertz has west Brom so B might make sense
      Don’t know about Mahrez that could be another transfer down the line. Great pick but minutes probably an issue

      1. Lalrota
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Will Monitor Mahrez today. Could be Foden too.
        So you wouldn't really WC? Even if it means losing some tv.
        Thanks for the input.

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

          Get the right player and tv will look after itself.

          1. Lalrota
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Cheers mate.

    2. Kavorka
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I see no reason to wildcard. Only problem is Alli. Maybe McCarthy too. Rest of the team is fine

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

      Think B will be enough for you, save WC

      1. Lalrota
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Cheers mate

  3. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Would you WC this team or is it not needed?

    (1FT/0itb)
    McCarthy*
    Justin* - Davies* - TAA
    Auba* - ASM* - Salah - Bruno
    Adams* - Wilson* - Werner

    (*) = hard fixture next / out of form

    1. akhilrajau

      Same as mine and suggested.to.take wc

  4. Ze_Austin

    GW1 taught me randomness. GW2 taught me patience

    1. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Not as an Alli owner it didn't 🙁

      Writing was on the wall to be fair. Should have dumped him for Hames

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

    Time to wc this lot or hold off for a few more gws? Need some city and wolves for their good fixture runs.

    McCarthy
    Taa davies Egan
    Salah Auba Bruno soucek
    Ings dcl mitro

    Nyland Taylor Mitchell bissouma

  6. Live Lad
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Not wildcarding. Thinking about a few transfers.
    Team:
    McCarthy
    TAA, Davies, Tierney*, Mitchell, Ferguson
    Salah, Auba, ASM*, Soucek, Bissouma
    Kane, Adams, Vardy

    (1) Tierney + Auba + ASM to Saiss + KDB + Klich/ Costa (please suggest have 6.5 to spend) (-4)
    (2) Tierney + Auba + ASM to Saiss + Son + J Rod (-4)

    2 means no city for now but have Vardy to downgrade to Jesus
    or do Vardy+ Son to DCL + KDB. Son is too good to ignore.

  7. Sloane426
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 2 days ago

    ASM > Klich -4 or start Mitchell?

    1. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Probably start Mitchell on current form.

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

    Thoughts on this WC? Really want Reece James but just can't squeeze him in.

    Guaita.
    Digne. Saiss. Taylor.
    KDB. Sterling. Son. Hamez. Barnes.
    Jimenez. DCL.

    4.0. Justin. Mitchell. Reed. 0.2itb.

    No Chelsea v West Brom is a concern but can't have them all..

    1. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      No Liverpool not ideal

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

        Not too fussed about that given the fixtures.

        1. Lalrota
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          ARS avl eve SHU WHU

          Should be going TAA.

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

            For SHU maybe, next 3 I don't think they'll keep any cleans

      2. Kavorka
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        City double up tho.

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

          Exactly. So explosive and captainable in most fixtures.

          1. fish&chips
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Yeah, I do like the double city to be fair. Just always a risk going without Liverpool but it's fine if your replacement are firing

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

      Looks decent. City double up instead of Salah could be genius or disastrous 🙂

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

        Can't afford Salah unless I downgrade 😉

    3. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Love it great team.

    4. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Looks great

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

      No way I can get James v WBA? Guaita -> 4.5 but I REALLY like Guaita.

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

      Looking good but Mitro or Barnes?

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

        Barnes looks unplayable right now. Jumping on him while he's low % is what seasons are made of. Mitro and Fulham still look awful.. The pen inflates his form

        1. Lindelol
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Yes Mitro lacks service otherwise he is v good with good fixtures

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

    Over the course of the season, would robbo or Thiago get more points you reckon?

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

      Gut feeling is Robbo, but who knows...

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Robbo.

    3. pakornk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Robbo. Thiago assists the assister.

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

    Thoughts on WC ?

    Guaita, Button
    TAA, Saiss, Castagne, Lamptey, Mitchell
    Salah, KDB, Zaha, Klich, Anguissa
    DCL, Jiminez, Richarlison

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

      Yeah decent!

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

        Castagne could be on for a huge season. Monitor Lamp game time. I'd prefer Podence to Klich as doesn't have to rely on pens.

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

          Thanks - Lamp could become another Brighton 4.5
          It's the penalties that swung it for Klich, but think he will score/assist from open play too. I like the look of Podence but worried about competition in that slot

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

            Yeah it's a coin toss really. Great team

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I prefer Hames to Rich, and I have an inkling VVD/Robbo will prove better value than Trent, but other than that looks great.

  11. Phil's Stamps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    After a pretty disastrous start - no Salah gw1 and Son Ings to Bruno Martial (yes, I'm one of THOSE losers) I've wildcarded. I've come up with a fairly balanced squad with lots of flexibility but am wondering if i should be more agressive and load up with big hitters to get back in the game:

    A: Balance
    Martinez 4.0
    Robbo VVD Saiss Lamptey Taylor
    Salah Son JamesRod Zaha Klich
    Jimi DCL 4.5
    (2.8 ITB for Son to City or something else)

    B: Agressive

    Martinez 4.0
    VVD 4.5 4.5 4.5 Mitchell
    Salah KDB Sterling JamesRod 4.5
    Jimi DCL 4.5
    (0.3 ITB)

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

      I prefer A but would do the Son> City

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

      I might consider getting City players...

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        In team A Son could be City.

    3. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Thanks for the replies.

  14. Pep Roulette

    Surely getting Semedo in GW4! Let's hope he's priced at 5.5!

    1. Eric Banternaaa
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Fingers crossed.

    2. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Ah yes. Almost forgot I could get this dude in FPL in a few weeks

    3. Lalrota
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      He might be in this week.

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Might not start against West Ham! Surely does against Fulham though!

    4. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Barca's Semedo is moving to Wolves?

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years

        Yes!

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

        He's from Portugal, so I guess that explains it

        Also... Barca is currently selling to buy anyway

    Mitrovic Auba ASM > DCL KDB Hendrick

    Any other ideas?

    Would you say it’s important to load up on penalty takers this season?

    Seems like they’ll be 1 in every 2 games.

      2 every 1 game you mean

      Don't know.
      I'm going for KDB instead of Raz and pens are big part of that though

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Seems like it, someone like Klich should get an extra 20-30 points per season in an attacking side with pens, not bad for 5.5

    Watching Spurs now,Son is incredible.

    With Bale on other wing they will have scary pace,Kane should benefit too.

    Spurs could finish above Man.Utd/Chelsea especially if Man.Utd dont sign Sancho.

    1. Lalrota
      • 4 Years

      Spurs are terrible. Southampton were mad to give him that much of space.

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      U should’ve seen spurs play last week and the first 45mins vs saints...you will have a different opinion

    3. El Fenomeno R9
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Maybe Mou more defensive but that that front 3 will be scary for sure Son - Kane - Bale

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

      Ha ha
      Not every team is going to be that Naive to afford them so much space in behind.

      Son is awesome though yes

    5. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Sonny is a top top player. I’m hoping with bale it’ll afford more space to all 3 of them

    So all of a sudden Werner is out of fpl teams.

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

      Son, Kane, Ings, Mitrovic, Mané, TAA last GW

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

      I'm loving it.
      Taking a hit to bring him this GW myself

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years

      Crazy to sell Werner with those fixtures! Havertz too!

      We buy new shiny toys and dump them after few days for new shiny toys

      he's out of my team but good chance he'll be back in 4 or 5 days...a lot depends if Jesus impresses tonight

    Repost. Please help.
    Team:
    McCarthy
    TAA, Davies, Tierney*, Mitchell, Ferguson
    Salah, Auba, ASM*, Soucek, Bissouma
    Kane, Adams, Vardy

    (1) Tierney + Auba + ASM to Saiss + KDB + Klich/ Costa (please suggest have 6.5 to spend) (-4)
    (2) Tierney + Auba + ASM to Saiss + Son + J Rod (-4)

    2 means no city for now but have Vardy to downgrade to Jesus
    or do Vardy+ Son to DCL + KDB. Son is too good to ignore.

  20. AlpoShearer

    Which one?
    A. Auba to KDB and play Michell
    B. Auba and ASM to KDB And Klich (-4)
    C. Auba and ASM to Son and Zaha (-4)
    D. WC

    McCarthy
    TAA-Doherty-Egan

    Do we expect Ben Davies to play maybe one more week or is regulion straight into the team? Didn’t think Davies played too bad tbh

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

      I think he was OK too. But Reguilon surely will compete and maybe take his place. I sold Davies because of this.

      1. FDMS All Starz
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Mourinho was always one to ease new players, never threw them in the deep end unless it was a huge problem, think regulion will take a few weeks to adjust to the team and how they play and then for sure he will be preferred over Ben Davies

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I think he’ll be out sooner rather than later unfortunately

    Please someone tell me TAA will come good soon?

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      He already has a return

    2. Amey

      Taa will come good soon !

    Thoughts on this WC draft:

    Martinez (4.0)

    Robbo Saiss Castagne (Pieters/4.5 Mitchell)

    KDB Raz Son Zaha (4.5 mid)

    Jimmy DCL Mitro

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Like it, your thinking Chelsea won’t come good then?

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

        Think the new guys will take time to settle.
        Lamps has taken out the last time's team and new boys haven't settled in quite yet. They are lacking service to Werner IMO.

  24. Lalrota

    If Semedo comes which is better

    A Digne Saiss
    B Semedo Coleman

    Hello morning crew, played my wc after having vinagre, Adams, bavies, havertz etc and no wolves cover which I really wanted for the next run

    Here’s where I’m up to, any standout errors ?

    Ryan
    Saïss/robbo/James
    Zaha/kdb/salah/Klich
    Werner/dcl/jimi

    Justin/4.5/Mitchell

    - will get Werner back once he’s dropped in price to gain 0.1 there, feel good about this team but horrible about my start to the season !

    1. THEKID_88

      Prefer Hrod to Zaha if you can afford it. Rest looks great.

  26. tinear
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 2 days ago

    McCarthy
    TAA, Bavies, Justin
    Salah, Auba, ASM, Son
    Werner, DCL, Mitro

    Nyland, Mitchell, KWP, Bissouma

    2ft, 0.5 itb

    Transfers needed :
    1) ASM to Hamez
    2) Bavies to Saiss
    3) Auba to Sterling (I trust him)/KDB
    4) KWP to Lamptey
    5) McCarthy to Ryan

    Worth to wildcard? Or -4 for 1,2,3 for this week and sort others out by following weeks?

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      How'd you do 1

      1. tinear
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Oh I missed that. By Auba to sterling and Werner to Jimenez. It would be for -4 as well

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Just Auba & ASM to KDB/Sterling & Podence/Leeds this week!

          1. tinear
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Werner can wait? Cheers

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Think the Southampton and Spurs players can stay one more week, ASM is the biggest problem if unfit, either ship him off for a similar player or use funds from Auba to upgrade him I think

      1. tinear
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I can keep Bavies but Tempted for Saiss

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

    Different positions but Barnes or Castagne in FPL?

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Both good options! But Barnes for me! Main man at Leicester and improving every day!

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

        Vardy would like a word, Ser Roulette

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Hahaha. Looking at the last two games! Barnes has been very highly involved as compared to Vardy!

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

      Conceding two against an injury hit Burnley isn't a good sign for that defence. Castagne is a right winger though

      Barnes still has his accuracy issues, but same can be said of Salah...

      Castagne being cheaper and more nailed with more routes to points definitely helps him

    3. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Barnes but I like Castagne. Only thing with Tim is that he is massively outperforming his stats. Almost 0 crosses or shots compared to his contemporaries. He'll regress..

    WC this mess?
    Think I'm going to

    Ramsdale Sreer
    TAA Saiss Digne Taylor KWP
    Salah Auba Jrod Soucek Biss

  29. Live Lad
    • 5 Years

    Vardy + Auba + ASM to Jimmy + KDB + J Rod (-4) ?

    McCarthy
    TAA, Davies, Tierney*, Mitchell, Ferguson
    Salah, Auba, ASM*, Soucek, Bissouma
    Kane, Adams, Vardy

    (1) Tierney + Auba + ASM to Saiss + KDB + Klich/ Costa (till 6.5) (-4)
    (2) Tierney + Auba + ASM to Saiss + Son + J Rod (-4)
