FPL tips and advice from FFS Hall of Fame leader ahead of Gameweek 4

Current Fantasy Football Scout Hall of Fame leader, Fábio Borges has finished inside the top 5k in each of the last five seasons, and even won 2020’s inaugural edition of Virtual FPL.


Patience has been my friend so far this season, which is nice to see in a campaign that has felt chaotic at times even at this early stage.

After three Gameweeks, I have only made one transfer so far, switching Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.9m) to Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m), using up just one of the two free transfers I had last time out.

That means I have been pretty happy with my team so far and, thankfully, my patience has been rewarded too.

It has been a strong start to 2020/21 and I sit just outside the top 100,000 at the time time of writing.

WHAT TO DO WITH TIMO WERNER?

Werner scores on Chelsea debut as Ziyech sustains knee injury

After three disappointing performances for Timo Werner (£9.4m), in which he averaged just three points per game, many Fantasy managers are trying to decide what to do with such an underperforming and expensive asset.

There are several reasons for selling him, such as the emergence of other forwards due to form, fixtures (or a mixture of both), Frank Lampard’s tactical shifts and the possibility that Werner is struggling to adapt to a new team, league and country.

However, even though all those factors should be considered, the decision is very clear to me and the reason can be summarised in one small sentence: Werner is a world-class forward with two excellent home fixtures ahead of him. I think these two factors overshadow all the possible reasons to lose faith in him so soon.

Also, transfers are precious and I like to use them to fix the weakest links in my starting eleven. Despite the lack of returns so far, Werner is definitely not one of them for now.

WHICH IS THE BEST FORMATION GOING FORWARD?

Looking at the current player pool, there are many more defenders that I would like to have in my team than the number of cheap midfielders and forwards I’m interested in.

In fact, not only am I pretty happy with 4-3-3 but I am also considering moving to 5-3-2 to have as many defenders in my team as possible. 

The main advantage of defenders, in my view, is the lack of uncertainty when compared with cheap attacking players. This is mainly because a big chunk of defenders’ points is linked with their team’s defensive strength (clean sheets) which is much easier to assess and predict than the individual attacking potential of players from mid to low table teams.

This is especially true at the beginning of the season when it’s still unclear which cheap attacking gems are really worth it while it is already pretty obvious which teams are more likely to keep clean sheets and which defenders will be at the top of the points list by the end of the season.

However, going five at the back means a weaker bench and starting all five defenders every week can be tricky to manage since fixtures are so important for clean sheet potential so it’s likely that I will keep going with 4-3-3 for the near future.

THE P WORD

werner-replacements 2

Penalties are flying around at a rate never seen before in the Premier League. Nevertheless, we are looking at an incredibly small sample size so we have to be very careful not to draw any definite conclusion from it.

There was a total of 274 penalties across the last three Premier League seasons, which means that each team was afforded, on average, 0.12 per match. So far in 2020/21, this number almost tripled and is now at a staggering 0.35 spot-kicks per team per match.

However, my guess is that this is mainly due to a mix of pure variance with a strict interpretation of the handball rule by the referees which, according to the news, is about “to be softened”. 

Even if the number of penalties doubles this season (which I find it hard to believe), the increase in expected points for each designated taker won’t be as impactful as it seems at first glance because, on average, they will miss a penalty around 20% of the time.

Therefore, even though a possible increase in penalties will also increase the takers’ appeal (especially midfielders, who get five points for every penalty scored), I think it’s important not to get carried away by buying the likes of Mateusz Klich (£5.6m), Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m) or even Richarlison (£8.0m) just because of their spot-kick duties. I would rather sign someone who offered threat from open play as well as penalties, which Zøphar touched on earlier this week.

TARGET FULHAM AND WEST BROM

State of Fulham defence bodes well for Wolves options in Gameweek 4

After three Gameweeks, it seems to me that the two newly promoted sides have the potential to be considered the whipping boys this season.

Since I like to put a lot of weight into fixtures when assessing my options, I will try to have as many attackers as possible against these two teams until they start showing some signs of defensive improvement.

Fulham face Wolves (away), Sheffield United (away), Crystal Palace (home), West Brom (home), West Ham (away) and Everton (home) between now and Gameweek 9. From that selection, I think we should be most aware of attacking assets on offer at Molineux, as well as the Eagles, Hammers and Toffees.

Meanwhile, the Baggies make for nice opposition for Southampton this weekend before boosting the attack potential of Burnley (home), Brighton (away), Fulham (away), Spurs (home) and Manchester United (home).

    Hi all
    My front 8 is in a right state.
    I’m Considering either Son or ASM our for -4. Worth it or hold?

    Salah, KDB, Son, ASM, Bissouma
    Jimi, Werner, K Davies

    1. Mr. O'Connell

      Jesus thats even worse than mine. What you got in the bank?

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Must have a decent defence, mind?

    2. Barnes Owl

      What was your first trade?

    3. Noah’s Ark

      Son and Davis to Ings and Soucek?

  2. Olson

    Free hitting as a result of botched -8 transfers, favorible fixtures and wanting to keep Brewster (transferred out). Anyway, sanity of this isn't the point

    McCarthy
    TAA, Holding, KwP
    Sterling, KdB, Barnes, Klich
    Vardy, Ings, Jimi

    What say you to the team

    1. Neevesy
      • 4 Years

      Is there a reason you have kept Mccarthy?

      1. Olson
        • 6 Years

        What is a better option at 4.5?

      Not sure about double saints def on a free hit. This team seems low on overall value, have you made the subs all 4.0m etc to maximise the starting team? I'd downgrade either vardy or Barnes and get double wolves def, or double up pool def. Also no salah is a worry

      1. Olson
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        4.0, 4.0, 4.4

        It's not low on value. The front line is 27m

        Not touching wolves defence right now. They've conceded eight goals in three matches. See Arsenal v SHU and Saints v WBA as better prospects and lower prices. None of the wolves defenders are explosive either.

        Salah isn't worrying me much. AVL defensive improvement has been steady and going on for some time now. This isn't an easy source of points. And on balance I would fear City v Leeds more

        West Ham are conceding stacks of goals against free scoring opposition. Don't see any more appealing options to invest in tbh... Wouldn't trust the MUN TOT fixture, wouldn't trust Arsenal to put more than one, maybe two past SHU.

          Reasonable points, though I do think wolves def is still good, bad game against hammers but they still have one of best defensive stats over last few months. And the other game was city, who score against everyone. Fulham are toothless, quite likely for a clean.

          I think overall are reasonable choices, but I'd probably reconsider if a free hit is worth it? I think your team looks decent, but not much different to alot of teams this week, many favourable fixtures. It may be worth taking the -8 and its easy to bring back brewster later on, he's the cheapest you can get. And initially he will take awhile to settle in. The free hit can have so much value later in the season in a gw where there a big name players highly owned with blanks, and others with double gws, some teams will have 7 players playing and your team could be full of doubles, a huge swing, and these types of gws definitely happen at the end of season chaos. Just my 2p.

      It's a good, standard team. I'd throw in 2-3 differentials.

      1. Olson
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I've picked what I think are the players with the highest chance of returns

        1. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          We all do that, and every week there are surprises. I'm suggesting you have a crack at finding a surprise. I can lend you a jousting stick to have a crack at that pinata.

      Hudson-Odoi starts apparently from twitter trusted itk, means Werner:
      - starts up from with mount cho wings
      - or Mount gets benched

          So I made a mistake and got Vinagre as part of a -8 hit, but then realised he may be transferred, so panicked and got Coady in, but now on -12.

          Question

          a) stick with -12 and swallow it
          b) free hit
          c) major surgery on my team with an early WC

          Thanks!

              Free hit and load up on city attack, double pool defense with Salah and fill the gaps

              you can free hit and get some city assets in and wipe out the -12

                    I want Salah but it means a -8.

                      I am currently poised on a -8 myself so feel your pain. Could be worth it when you see the new team though

                        cheers.That's what i am thinking.Son+Kane+Moura->Salah+Jimenez+Trossars seems superb.

                        Are you thinking to sell Werner+Martial+Son?

                          Repost needed as i used a bad word! Yeah already sold Werner to DCl. Currently have the finger over Son to Rashford and Martial to Vardy. Probably excessive but i need to do something and i hate wildcarding early

                            Yeaaahh agree on the wc.No love for Jimenez?Better fixtures for Wolves.

                              Would like to get him in with those fixtures just prefer Vardy in think on balance

                                No Salah though isn't scary?

                hidden gem of the week:

                Trossard

                    haha he does! I still seem set on him as a 6.0m mid and under. only drawback is i'll be booting Hamez for him as part of a hit for fernandes, just really don't believe in Rodriguez, unsure why i got him, maybe just for the price hikes.

                  Hoping my low owned midfield trio of Barnes, Trossard and Pereira can help me turn things around.

                    i believe that's a great little trio to have there mate, those are the main three anyway i feel around that price bracket to have. I just have a great feeling about Trossard, he's just always there isn't he! Need to follow my gut a lot more and am doing now 🙂

                      After watching the game against united he could of had a hat trick. Was very unfortunate.

                        Extremely unfortunate, if not for that direct point blabk shot right at de gea, he's of scored. Everton will conceed with Brighton's form at the moment, so hoping the Trossard will be beneficiary to that. Gonna do my moves now, Tross and bruno IN 🙂

                  I was going to bring him in, but I would have had a benching nightmare, so I didn't bother. Their upcoming fixtures are looking nice

                    Yeh it's a toughie if itcauses a benching headache, fortunately i'm 352 all the way with a pretty kack bench of Mitchell Dunne & Brewster, so nice player to bring in just now.

                  I've been thinking about getting him all day but I've ultimately decided he's not worth it. I want to play 3-4-3 and i don't want to play brewster every match.

                    I want him to strengthen my bench, certainly won’t be starting him unless Fulham or WBM

                1 month, 29 days ago

                It's a bit weird that Mahrez is headlining the differentials article yet the scout's predicted lineup has him benched

                1. UNDERWORLD7
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  will he even play? that's an awful lot of minutes there for Riyad.

                  1. Rhinos
                    • 7 Years
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    my guess is it'll be same attackers as in the cup but that means Foden and Bilva miss out so who knows

                    1. UNDERWORLD7
                      • 9 Years
                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      Yeah hope Foden plays, i reckon he will, Mahrez to probs come on around 60 min mark, can still do damage.

                    Hope he starts and think he will but you never know

                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  The guy writing the differentials articles has had 5 top 1k finishes. Would probably trust him

                  1. baps hunter
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    When was the article written? I believe that having both Foden and Mahrez ;s pretty safe, both shouldn't be rested during same gw (famous last words, but I doubt it).

                    1. zeslinguer
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      2 or 3 days ago. Both are great picks if you have the patience to hold them through the inevitable benching.

                Currently no city will transfer out Son which one do you prefer will most likely captain too?

                A) KDB

                B) Sterling

                1. Niho992
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  Depends. If you wont use your WC in next few fixtures then KdB. If you want short term differential and have plan to use WC in next 2-3GWs then Sterling

                  1. Ghost86
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    Still got the WC and had a good start so far ranked about 150k but will use it when the team needs it.

                  james justin saiss dunne mitchell
                  kdb sterling salah foden barnes
                  dcl brewster jimenez

                  cant decide between sterling and vardy especially now with maddison back. thoughts?

                  also best 6 mil midfielder?

                    Asking for a calamity weekend in defense there. James could be rested sometimes with chillwell bsck and Lamport likes azpi. Justin will be dropped in a few gws when pereira is back. Dunne not nailed, Mitchell also. Even saiss has been known to be rotated during busy patches. Very strong attack but think def needs more balance. If its between sterling and vardy, go vardy and use the .5m to improve def

                    1. zman575
                        1 month, 28 days ago

                        thanks man nice advice ive gone with that. i was hoping to save the extra 1.5 from sterling to vardy to move saiss or james back up taa or robbo in a couple of weeks.

                        i think both james and saiss are nailed atm azpil will start left back and nunu cant drop saiss yet when he doesnt have a left back.

                        was thinking next week id just drop sterling to zaha and leave myself with 8.3 for any defender (trent or robbo).

                        its either that or like you said downgrade sterling to vardy and pick up players like lamptey and taylor

                          Yep sensible ideas! Personally if I wc I dont like to have planned xfers to make in the coming weeks and like a nailed team. Because you never know when injuries or unexpected events occur and your planned xfers suddenly become hits and becomes a big problem. James and saiss good players, I have saiss also, just think 1 nailed 4.5 over one of the 4.0m will help alot in the long run

                    I need a midfielder up to 6.0.The logic says Trossard but the heart says Neto.
