Quiet Calvert-Lewin continues ruthless streak as Rodríguez blanks again

Crystal Palace 1-2 Everton

  • Goals: Cheikhou Kouyaté (£5.0m) | Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.3m), Richarlison (£8.0m)
  • Assists: Andros Townsend (£6.0m) | Seamus Coleman (£5.0m), Lucas Digne (£6.1m)
  • Bonus points: Richarlison x3, Kouyaté x2, Digne x1

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.3m) went some way to strengthening his Fantasy Premier League appeal as he scored his fifth goal of the season in a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace.

The mid-priced forward was the talk of the town after netting four goals in his first two matches of the season, going into Gameweek 3 backed by 27% of Fantasy managers.

Face-to-face with a defence that had made a positive start to the season, keeping out Southampton and mostly limiting Manchester United, there were some mild fears that Calvert-Lewin’s incredible run might stutter at Selhurst Park – but it did not.

In fact, the player demonstrated something his Fantasy owners will be delighted with: the ability to have a relatively quiet game and yet deliver all the same.

“The performance was difficult. We had difficulties. The first half was quite good, we were able to play as we wanted. The second half was more difficult because Crystal Palace played a good second half putting a lot of pressure on us.” – Carlo Ancelotti

Having lit up his first two outings of the campaign, Calvert-Lewin was largely crowded out by Crystal Palace’s organised defence on Saturday afternoon. Rather than finding himself put through time, and time again, as was the case in Gameweek 2, Everton’s star striker was mostly restricted to half-chances and awkward snatches of the ball from free-kicks and corners.

However, on the rare occasion that he found some space behind Palace’s back-four, he did what all the best forwards do: he found the net.

Seamus Coleman (£5.0m) pounced on a rare lapse of concentration from Tyrick Mitchell (£4.1m) to get around the back in the 10th minute. He cut the ball back for an unmarked Calvert-Lewin who, despite barely getting a mention beforehand, slotted home coolly.

Calvert-Lewin’s increasingly ruthless nature bodes exceptionally well for upcoming fixtures against more favourable defences than what Palace offered on Saturday. Everton face Brighton, Southampton and Newcastle in three of their next four fixtures, each of those sides conceding three goals or more four times so far this season.

Meanwhile, Richarlison (£8.0m) continues to remind Fantasy managers that he is quietly waiting in the background as a viable alternative option in attack.

Not only was he lively as a left-winger in the 4-3-3 system once again, but there is also a chance that the Brazilian is now Ancelotti’s preferred penalty taker.

It was Richarlison who was handed the responsibility for the Toffees’ first-half spot-kick, even though he was sharing the pitch with top goal-scorer Calvert-Lewin and James Rodríguez (£7.6m).

For now, it is difficult to say that the former Watford man is the favoured taker for the whole club, considering that Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.9m). Obviously, the Icelandic international has lost his place in the team this season, so Richarlison’s chances are good, but we need to see Everton win a penalty when those two players share the pitch before we can categorically install the Brazilian as number one.

By comparison with Calvert-Lewin, James Rodríguez (£7.6m) was arguably the best player on the Selhurst Park pitch on Saturday and yet came away with no Fantasy rewards.

For all his skill, shine, vision and backing of 25.2% of Fantasy managers, the Colombian has now blanked in two from a possible three Premier League outings.

In fact, against Palace, Rodríguez enjoyed an afternoon of ‘assisting the assister’. It was his exquisite through-pass which found Coleman’s penetrative run before the right-back squared for Calvert-Lewin’s goal.

And in the 40th minute, it was Rodríguez’s excellent ball on the counter-attack which put Lucas Digne (£6.1m) through to force a hand-ball and penalty out of Joel Ward (£4.5m).

There were still a number of other opportunities for Rodríguez to get attacking returns, but they did not pan out for his ever-increasing ownership.

In the 29th minute, he played an incredible through-ball to Richarlison on the counter, setting the Brazilian through the middle. However, the forward’s poor first-touch, taken with his right foot when the left would have kept him more central, saw Richarlison drag possession out wide.

Then, shortly after half time, Rodriguez was fouled on the edge of the box and denied Digne’s request to take the direct free-kick. While the Frenchman rattled the crossbar with a fizzing effort in Gameweek 2, Rodríguez produced a tame effort aimed straight at Vincente Guaita (£5.0m).

Rodríguez also aimed a well-placed corner straight at Calvert-Lewin in the 51st minute, only to see the centre-forward screw horribly wide.

For all of Everton’s decent attacking play this season, there do remain some issues defensively. They have kept just one clean sheet in their first three matches of the campaign, despite facing newly-promoted opposition and a side that scored the fewest home goals last season.

With Brighton, Liverpool and Southampton the next three opponents for Everton, Digne owners may have to rely on his attacking returns in the coming weeks.

His assist at Palace came from forcing a handball from Ward, although he continues to do battle with Rodríguez for a say in set pieces.

After a lightning start to the season, Wilfried Zaha (£7.1m) recorded his first blank. While he continues to be deployed out-of-position as a centre-forward alongside Jordan Ayew (£5.9m), the FPL midfielder spent the last 15 minutes shifted back to the flanks after Michy Batshuayi (£ replaced Eberechi Eze (£6.0m).

However, that does not mean Zaha should leave the Fantasy radar, far from it. Gameweek 4 takes Palace to Stamford Bridge, to face a Chelsea defence that conceded three times to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.

The fact that Zaha has three goals in as many outings this season, and only Manchester City have registered more away wins against the big six than Palace since May 2015 bodes well for next weekend.

Also worth considering is Andros Townsend (£6.0m) as he registered a third attacking return of the season in Gameweek 3. Having assisted against Southampton, scored past Manchester United and now assisting on Saturday afternoon, the former Spurs man has yet to blank in 2020/21 and was comfortably Palace’s best player in their most recent match.

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; Mitchell, Sakho, Kouyaté, J Ward; Eze (Batshuayi 75′), McArthur (Riedewald 88′), McCarthy, Townsend; Zaha, Ayew (Benteke 82′).

Everton XI (4-3-3): Pickford; Digne, Keane, Mina, Coleman; Gomes (Sigurdsson 76′), Allan, Doucouré; Richarlison (T Davies 90′), Calvert-Lewin, Rodríguez (Iwobi 86′).

    Bench = Fodder

    1m ITB. 1 FT.

    Haven't used my WC yet.

        2 months, 8 days ago

        Timo to Ings, I mean

        Or just hold. It's a good team

        Mahrez with a fodder bench in scary though

        1. Sanchit
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Jesus and Aguero injured, sterling probably playing CF.
          Assuming that F.Torres needs a bit of time like most players with Pep
          I thought he should be fairly nailed on for a few weeks?

          1. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Depends on when Bilva returns

            Note that Delap is also around

            Zinch and Bilva went from fringe players to being nailed due to injuries two seasons ago, then dropped right back out

            Rodri found himself starting way more often than Pep planned last season, because Dinho was needed at CB

            Injuries make Pep bring in players you don't expect to see... Just so he can keep rotating

            I think the more nailed of all these are Sterling and KDB (but will still get rests)

            The rest? You'd need some prescience to be this sure

            1. Sanchit
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              I agree! But don't have the funds to upgrade to the big guns.
              Bilva will return to training atleast after 2 weeks from now is what I've read

              1. Ze_Austin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 8 days ago

                Yeah, but Delap means Sterling can stay on the left with Foden/Mahrez still rotating

                Especially because Cup games are involved

                I strongly feel Mahrez starts today, though

                Best of luck 🙂

                1. Sanchit
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 8 days ago

                  Thanks
                  Same to you

    2. Hadebayor Mum
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Defence quite pricy given lack of CS. Over the next weeks, could downgrade there and lose a premium forward to beef up the midfield?

      1. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Yes that's what I aim to get to. Kdb and Bruno the ones I would want.
        The question , whether I do it slowly over a few weeks. Or use the WC this week?

    3. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Mahrez is a worry for minutes. Not sold on Doherty until I see him start performing under Maureen.

      Perhaps a little spent on DF considering the amount of goals that are being scored?

      Other than that, looking like a fine side.

      Doherty > Saiss maybe?

      1. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Mahrez looks fairly nailed till Aguero and Jesus are out?

        I agree. Even I'm not sold on Doherty.
        Looking at something like
        Werner + Doherty -> Richarlison + TAA

        Or as you mentioned
        Doherty -> Saiss/Semedo

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

      sort out your bench

      1. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        A strong believer that bench shouldn't be more than the minimum.
        Just to clarify, fodder means they are the lowest at their price brackets, which means I have two 4.5 mids who will give me 2 points if there is a need ever

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

          so who is on your bench ? 🙂

          1. Sanchit
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Stephens Bissouma Mitchell

  2. adstomko
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    What 6.5m striker or below looks worth it? I fear Wood will blank again

    1. Hryszko
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Maupay at Brighton, always dangerous, Brighton look a good team this year and he's on penalties.

      1. adstomko
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        True. Might bring him in after Everton

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Mitro will be a solid (if unspectacular) pick for the whole season.
      Wood is flavour of the month round here.

      1. adstomko
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        He technically scored yesterday, annoyingly.
        Think it's between Mitrovic and Maupay. The former has good fixtures after Wolves

    3. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Mitro, Maupay

    4. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I love the 6.5m strikers, gutted I couldn't find room for one.

      Antonio, Wood, Maupay are the 3 gems imo. Antonio my fav but the fixtures aren't good enough. Hoping to get him in the future.

      Although Maupay is putting in a strong case. Brighton looking good, and Lamptey is increasing his pens...

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

        I'd go Wood atm.

        Best fixtures.

    5. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Maupay for sure

  3. JenkoJunko
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Worst start in years!! Not having fun!! Just saying!!

    1. Brosstan

        1. Hadebayor Mum
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Tell me about it!!!!!

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Wow someone lower than me. You have 9 of my team let’s hope we both start getting big points

    3. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Same here. Quickly losing interest!

    4. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Do you care that much? It's just a game

  4. Jordan.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    bye bye tony ,utd were beyond crap...

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Yep, I brought him in for Palace game. Sold him again this week on WC

  5. Hryszko
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Werner captain shout horrendous, went with my gut.. beating myself up over it now as I swapped him in for Son, meh I guess that's the game unfortunately..

    Werner > Ings done!

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Good move. I did Werner > Jimi before the price changes last night.

      1. Hryszko
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Yeah i already had Jimmy and DCL up top, so it seemed a sensible choice and I avoided a drop which is nice.

    2. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Keeping Werner personally. 2 decent fixtures to come

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Same

      2. DAZZ
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Another 2 blanks will sting.

  6. Original Pirate Material
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Is MoTD available on iPlayer?

    1. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Yes.

  7. Mambino
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    So I own KDB but captained Werner - does that mean I want KDB to blank even though I own him?

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Weird but yeah that's how FPL works

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Wouldn't have thought so

    3. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Overall, no, I think you want your player to score.

      But I often have these conflicting thoughts about fantasy as well. Especially if a rival has them captain and I don't.

    4. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      His overall EO would still be below 100%
      So you want him to score!

    5. Zilla
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Too early for this

    6. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      No

    7. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      cheers all - getting more complex this game now so many active players in it

    8. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      It's GW3 so no, GW33 yes. You can literally jump half a million places with a high score

    9. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Depends how many captained him in your mini leagues. Personally i hope he goes off after 30 seconds

      1. Mambino
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        not in any mini-leagues just from an overall perspective

  8. NABIL - 1 season 1der
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Kane (my pick) vs Werner (almost everyone else's pick) episode 3..

    Let's see who wins it this time.

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

      Don't beat the dead ... 🙁

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Apologize mate.. but many disagree with me before GW1

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

          Not © for me but i got him IN for a hit 😀

          Feck him !

          1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Ouch. My commiseration

    2. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      im surprised so many went Kane(c) in top 10k

      31%, by far the most
      werner only 11%

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        A lot of them were there because of Kane the previous week to be fair.

      2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Guessing them having him and not Werner is a cause of most of them being top 10k

      3. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Many dead teams with Kane perma captain

        1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          My team's not dead

      4. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Because many are there because of him.

        Surely they'd captain him vs Newcastle

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          ....everyone on here said "they will not play Southampton every week" on here...
          lol

          1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Indeed. Poor them.

            "they will not play man united every week" next. Another high line of defence.

            I'm already licking my lips

      5. Alexis Nonsense
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        That's why they are top 10k i guess, I think Kane is a way better captain choice even before we knew Werner blanked

        More surprising is that Kane is in so many teams in top 10k as he's very expensive (e.g. not looking like value unless Spurs blow away teams like they did Southampton on a regular basis).

        1. diabydoesgallas
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I’m top 4K, mostly thanks to captain Kane last week (and Salah week one). Have the armband on him again this week, reason I don’t mind him being expensive is because he is always a solid captaincy choice - I wouldn’t want a 10m plus player if they weren’t an option for captaincy.

      Thank you for buffing my team value.

      The obvious one

      me too last night ,no utd now but still got my eyes on greenwood ,wait and see what happens regarding sancho but he does look a jolly good player...

      1. Alexis Nonsense
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Would be nice with man u cover at 7.5

        But all the stats I've seen suggest he's been overperforming

        So 7.5 might actually be a bit too high, but only time will tell

    5. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Now or last night?

      1. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        If it is now there is no hope for him

  10. Amey
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Go slightly big at back in Taa Saiss & Foden
    OR
    2*4.5 & Bruno ... Which one is better over next few GW's ??

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Latter

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years

        Thanks

    2. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      penalties - enough said

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

        Yeah ...
        Lot of pens

    3. KGFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Go light on defence... VAR will keep awarding these stupid penalties

    4. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Oooo how's your WC team looking matey? Mines on next page. Cheap at back big front 7!

  11. DA Minnion
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Have bruno but should I cut and run after my lucky 12 yesterday or stick and hope for the best. Could get sterling for free.

    1. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      given the penalty situation I'm not shipping Bruno. Nailed on starter in a a team that win loads of pens - even when they are playing crap. Also over the last two seasons they played well against the better sides

    2. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      He'll get at least 15 goals just from pens

    3. Deeney-is-a-god
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      If you dont need the money I think he is a good pick, would want him myself. He will get a lot of points this season

  12. Werner Bremen
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Who is on pens for WBA?

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

      Pereira I think

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

        Takes free kicks and corners so assuming he’s on pens

    2. wulfranian
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Last year was Austin and after Zohore(2) and Kanu(1).This yead i think Diangana got 1.

    3. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Diangana took one but missed, hoping Pereira

  13. Hadebayor Mum
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Committed the sin of wild carding in too much value to the outfield 13. How benching headaches galore! Who to put in the team in case I miss deadline and am stuck with it???

    Saiss TAA Justin James Lamptey
    Hamez Mahrez Foden Podence KDB
    Werner Jimenez DCL

    Half tempted to get a second playing keeper and BB.

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Werner to Ings
      Don’t need 5 playing def, could save 0.5m
      Hamez ok in the interim for Chelsea mid
      Podence to Soucek

  14. davies
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    A) Ings Stephens

    B) Mahrez Brewster (Puli when fit)

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      B

      Chin up my man

  15. KAPTAIN KANE

    Dallas start???

  16. KAPTAIN KANE

    No Leeds vs Sheff team news?

    1. tokara
      • 6 Years

      Bamford starts

  17. OleGGMU
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Hi lads
    Looking for a bit of transfer advice
    Current XI for gw4
    Ryan
    TAA, Justin, Saiss
    Salah, KDB, Hames, Zaha, Foden
    Jimi, DCL
    Bench: Butts, Bamford, Dallas, Fergie
    0.4 itb

    On my current radar
    Hames to :
    A) Mount
    B) Podence
    C) Trossard

    Thoughts lads?
    Any advice much appreciated

    1. Chilli Heatwave
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Don’t think you need to ship him out. Should tick over

      1. OleGGMU
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers for the replies lads, yeah not entirely convinced by any of the options either, think it should be fine to give Hames another GW, any other changes?

    2. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      stick

  18. Chilli Heatwave
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Havertz owners hola at me. Are you keeping or would you do Havertz -> 4.5 and then 4.5 forward to Ings?

    1. 1zverGGadeM
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Get Ings

    2. DRINKWINE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I am keeping for now...bigger fires to deal with at the moment and he seems to be improving

      1. Chilli Heatwave
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I think as a number 10 he becomes an attractive option, if that is the formation they stick to.

    3. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Keeping, thought he looked ok yesterday and improving every game

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

      Keeping for now - but have Jim DCL

      Next week isn't great really but Southampton have the most open defence in the game week after - Burnley were just too slow and insipid to take advantage.

      Chelsea even when dreadful got 3 goals

      Also keeping an eye on Pulisic situation - hoping to get him at 8.0 perhaps as a swap :-).

  19. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

    Burke starts, Lord benched

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Burke train departing

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

        Yes

      2. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Wilder has said they are trying to bring in a new forward.

        Hopefully Brewster...

        1. Mambino
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          aren't palace in for him?

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

            A lot of clubs are apparently.

            Liverpool want to sell, Sheffield want to loan, Liverpool offer a structured deal of small payments instead, Sheffield go quiet... and that's where things are.

            1. Mambino
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              hmmm - I own him and think I'd rather he went to Palace from an FPL perspective

            2. BrockLanders
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Sheffield United haven't a pot to piss in. Even a loan deal with Brewster's wages would be problematic..

      3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Next stop: Shattered Dreams Parkway?

        1. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Lovely this time of year

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Lord not benched?

      Ramsdale, Basham, Robinson, Ampadu, Baldock, Lundstram, Berge, Osborn, Stevens, Burke, McGoldrick.

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Yes sorry, not sure if my error or website error (former is more likely)

  20. Zim0
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Guess Wilder likes Oliver Burke. Starts again

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

      Sharp's legs have gone.

      It's why Wilder is getting a new forward soon. Reason I avoided Burke...

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        But what about Burke and Brewster double up!

        Wilder seemed to like rotating forwards

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

          Maybe... but I can see a lot of 1pters...

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

            He's my Foden sub guy so i think it's better having him than a max 2 point potential player

      2. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Du u think Brewster and Burke start together as first choice?

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

          No. Too similar.

          Wilder likes a McTargetman and a poacher, I think...

      3. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Reason I didn't avoid is because they don't look like they can spend and sort a deal out, as much as they want someone

  21. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Burke 4.5m OOP!

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Not for long imo

  22. Weasel Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    So Podence didn't train and someone on here said he didn't travel.
    Great WC so far.

    BTW no I don't have a source.

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Unlucky WCers.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Seems like most would be getting 4 points from Lamptey in or in Lateriser's case Burke

      1. Wild Rover
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Not me. Third sub, Mitchell first

    3. Wild Rover
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I heard the rumours but still got him on WC. If he is injured it doesn't sound like much and he has great fixtures. Saves a transfer later

    4. Gooner Kebab
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      He'll come good

    5. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Who said he didn't travel?

    6. BrockLanders
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Oh dear

    7. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      There’s no reasoning to suggest this could be true

    8. Free Hat
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Burke first sub.
      So something to look forward too this game.

    9. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Lamptey 4 points will do

  23. Dr. Rog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Trapdoor hype was real

  24. Optimus.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Lining up a -8 for exact funds the week after a WC is not good but hey ho

    1. Gooner Kebab
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Whoa easy

    2. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I'm sure that 8pts will pay off over the entire season. Small price to pay to set your team up for the long haul.

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

        Agreed

  25. Godfrey
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 8 days ago

    39 points with KDB (C), Barnes, TAA, Davies left. It's seems everyone has 6/7 players left...

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      10 left here 😎

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        And I have no one in the first two games today!

    2. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      The ones that have 6/7 left are probs on like 12 points

      You're sitting okay, a kdb haul and you're close to 50-60

    3. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      6 left (including captain). Only on 17 points though. You’re doing well.

    4. Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      excellent boast (c) still to play and 25 above average..

    5. diabydoesgallas
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Nice score regardless.

    6. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      have 3 city 3 wolves 1 spud today and 1 liverpool 1 villain tomorrow

    7. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      On 20 with 8 left

  26. Right In The Stanchion
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Leicester, Leeds and West Ham wins today please

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Accumulator

        1. Right In The Stanchion
            2 months, 8 days ago

            No just hoping

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Time for a cheeky Dallas haul 😎

        1. BrockLanders
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          *Klich haul*

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

            Can I have the assists?

            1. BrockLanders
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Yes. 🙂

        2. Optimus.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Watching Debbie does Dallas again?

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

            There’s a good chance I’ll be watching that afterwards haha

        3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Then you'll wake up and it was all a dream

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

            You know what I could have sworn I was dreaming last week in the Southampton game (Kane & Son owner)

            1. Debauchy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              A very wet one ..

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

                Couldn’t believe what I was seeing, as I’m sure many others thought that watched the match

      3. Gooner Kebab
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Trying to figure a way to get Bruno - the jamminess will continue i'm afraid

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

          It’s 2 of Salah/KdB/Bruno/Sterling basically

          1. Joey Tribbiani
              2 months, 8 days ago

              I got all 4 of them lol

              1. Gooner Kebab
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 8 days ago

                how does the rest of your team look like??

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

                  Yeah need to see this!

                2. Joey Tribbiani
                    2 months, 8 days ago

                    Digne + cheap defense, DCL and Bamford. Plan is to downgrade 1 of the big 4 and upgrade strikers. Currently 100k ranked

          2. BrockLanders
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Selling Martial is proper stress therapy. Good riddance.

          3. Sterling Archer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Spent the week debating klich or podence, ended up with podence, only 1 these games are going!

            1. BrockLanders
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Hope Leeds have a penalty madness today
