Kane asking tough questions of non-owners as effective ownership increases

Spurs 3-3 West Ham

  • Goals: Son Heung-min (£9.3m), Harry Kane x2 (£10.7m) | Fabian Balbuena (£4.4m), Manuel Lanzini (£6.4m)
  • Own goals: Davinson Sánchez (£5.4m)
  • Assists: Kane, Son, Sergio Reguilón (£5.5m) | Aaron Cresswell (£4.9m), Vladimir Coufal (£4.5m)
  • Bonus points: Kane x3, Son x2, Cresswell x1

The New Kane

Harry Kane (£10.7m) is back… just not as we know it. Fantasy Premier League managers have been waiting for this day for some time and many of them have finally got what they wanted: a Kane capable of exploding nearly every week.

Against West Ham, the Spurs forward delivered once more, registering another three attacking returns, posting a third double-figure haul in five matches and now heads into Gameweek 6 as the top-scoring Fantasy asset with 60 points.

That huge haul is made up of five goals and seven assists, which means Kane has already matched his personal-best total for assists in Premier League campaign, putting up seven in the 2016/17 and 2014/15 campaigns respectively.

A big reason for the player’s resurgence this season is that Jose Mourinho has finally found a way of building the Spurs team around Kane’s altered role in recent years.

Rather than trying to force him back into the more traditional number nine we once knew, Mourinho is making the most of Kane dropping into midfield. However, the premium forward is not just sitting deep, as we often saw over the last few years. In 2020/21, his success has come from balancing both areas of his game, knowing the right moments to drop and when to press forward to attack space.

Kane now knows the best time to drop into midfield is when space is opened up by the opposition and, as we saw for Spurs’ opening goal on Sunday, this is often combined with well-timed runs by Son Heung-min (£9.3m) on the left and whoever is occupying the right-hand flank. 

Spurs’ third goal against West Ham was a classic example of Kane knowing when to terrorise defences, peeling off the back of an exposed Angelo Ogbonna (£4.9m) to head beyond Lukasz Fabiański (£5.0m) from Sergio Reguilón‘s (£5.5m) cross.

MOVE WITH THE CROWD

It would appear that the more seasoned managers are starting to cotton onto Kane’s Fantasy credentials a lot sooner than the rest of the world – worth knowing for anyone trying to scythe their way up the overall rankings, or avoiding the red-arrowed swing of an effective ownership axe.

While Son sits in 46.8% of teams, second only to Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m), only 32% own Kane at this point in time. That’s despite the Spurs man registering 17 more points than Everton’s leading forward.

Meanwhile, as you can see from LiveFPL.net’s captaincy analysis for Gameweek 5, Son was the most popular skipper with a 17.9% share, while Kane had to make do with the second-highest backing (16.9%).

However, when we consider the managers who came into Gameweek 5 as the top 10,000, Kane’s command of the armband was much more significant.

47.6% of these bosses captained the premium forward, compared to just 20.8% backing for Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) and 16.4% for Son. Such figures ensued Kane had the highest effective ownership among the top 10k for Gameweek 5 (118.4%), a mantle he may well hold onto for Gameweek 6 as the game’s top-scoring player and a trip to Burnley.

West Ham defence

It must be said that Kane and his team-mates were certainly helped by some poor defending in Gameweek 5, although that was largely only during the first 20 minutes.

During this period, the Hammers were all over the place at the back. Having switched to a back-five, there was no communication in the opening exchanges and it was often unclear who was picking up which attackers.

That led to very little pressure on the ball, allowing for more time for Kane, Son and Reguilón to create the three chances that led to goals.

While that period might have encouraged those looking at Manchester City and Liverpool assets for the Gameweek 6 and 7 captaincy respectively, it is interesting to note that West Ham were much harder to break down after slipping into the initial 3-0 deficit.

They have weathered the storm of their difficult fixture run since the beginning of the campaign much better than expected, especially in comparison to the rest of the Premier League.

Between Gameweeks 1 and 4, their expected goals conceded (xGC) score was just 3.71 having faced Newcastle, Arsenal, Wolves and Leicester. That was the fourth-best in the Premier League over that period and the second-lowest of any team that had played four matches.

Even after conceding three goals at Spurs, their xGC of 5.40 was still in the division’s top three prior to Monday evening’s matches, although of the teams that played last night, only Burnley boasted a better score anyway.

Aaron Cresswell (£4.9m) is sure to end up on more and more Fantasy radars as West Ham’s fixture swing approaches in Gameweek 8. Between then and 13, David Moyes’ men face Fulham (home), Sheffield United (away), Aston Villa (home) and Leeds (home).

And against Wolves, Leicester and Spurs, Cresswell has registered a clean sheet and three assists, averaging nine points per game in that time.

The New Sergio

Reguilón is slowly emerging as the eye-catching Spurs defender, grabbing an assist in his second successive start at left-back, while the more expensive Matt Doherty (£5.8m) has missed out on each of the last two matches to Serge Aurier (£5.2m).

Reguilón has been a persistent creator of chances in his two Premier League outings thus far. Despite playing just 180 minutes compared to the rest of the team, his five key passes this season is the most of any Spurs defender and behind only Son (16) and Kane (13).

However, clean sheets continue to prove elusive for Mourinho’s men as they managed to surrender a 3-0 lead in the last 10 minutes of Sunday’s London derby.

It was a just reward for West Ham, who had proved persistent, especially during the second half and finished the game with more shots (13 to 11) and more shots in the box (10 to five) than their hosts.

It meant that Spurs are still without a clean sheet since Gameweek 37+ of last season and have let in eight goals since then, 1.6 per game.

Even though it looked settled at first, the centre-back pairing under Mourinho remains complicated for Fantasy managers and could be the only thing that might temper further investment in Reguilón.

Eric Dier (£5.0m) missed out for the first time with a hamstring injury, allowing Toby Alderweireld (£5.4m) to make his first start since Gameweek 1, this time alongside Davinson Sánchez (£5.4m). That was actually the centre-back pairing used the last time Spurs kept a clean sheet in the Premier League, although it did not work out on Sunday, with the Colombian netting an own goal. 

Meanwhile, after five matches, Spurs’ xGC of 7.18 remains inside the bottom seven so far this season. However, they do face Burnley (away), Brighton (home) and West Brom (home) before Gameweek 8.

Time to Bale?

After much fanfare, Gareth Bale (£9.5m) has finally made a reappearance in the Spurs team, this time as a 72nd-minute replacement for Steven Bergwijn (£7.1m).

The incredible performance of Son so far this season has largely pushed the Real Madrid man to the periphery of the Fantasy radar but managers would do well to keep an eye on him in the coming weeks.

As the South Korean’s price rapidly increases in line with Bale’s (now £9.3m to £9.5m), the latter may find himself less overlooked in the interest of value.

And if his 18-minute spell against West Ham is anything to go by, the Welshman is sure to find himself in the goals this season.

Stationed on the right-hand side of Spurs’ attacking midfield, Bale linked up well with Kane and was played through for what looked a certain goal in the closing stages.

We will also have to keep an eye on what impact Bale has on the key assets around him and whether or not he might detract from the amount of possession Son sees. Against West Ham, the two players had the same minutes per touch figure of 1.6.

Antonio latest

Finally, an update on Michail Antonio (£6.3m), whose 76th-minute substitution ensured he was not involved in any of West Ham’s comeback goals.

It was his first blank away from home this season and the forward can certainly consider himself unfortunate to have registered just one point, as he had more touches in the penalty box than any other player on the pitch (10) and was joint top for shots in the box too.

Moyes revealed after the game that Antonio had a tight hamstring and that the substitution was largely precautionary.

“Michail had a tight hamstring and I didn’t want to take any chances at that time so I changed it.” – David Moyes

While Antonio owners will have to wait on the next press conference before making a final decision, his chances of a start up-front were still boosted by the latest news on Sebastien Haller (£6.2m), West Ham’s only other senior recognised striker, who missed the Spurs game with a knock.

“We were pretty short, Seb Haller picked up an injury in training yesterday.” – David Moyes

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Reguilón, Sánchez, Alderweireld, Aurier; Højbjerg, Sissoko; Son (Moura 80′), Ndombèlé (Winks 73′), Bergwijn (Bale 72′); Kane.

West Ham United XI (5-4-1): Fabiański; Masuaku (Snodgrass 90′), Cresswell, Ogbonna, Balbuena, Coufal; Fornals (Lanzini 77′), Rice, Souček, Bowen; Antonio (Yarmolenko 77′).

    I've been far more impulsive this season for some reason, pulled the trigger last night on Mccarthy & Jimenez -> Martinez & Kane (-4).

    I know the Mccarthy -> Martinez hit might seem strange but I had this situation last year when I refused to get Pope in for a hit at any stage. I was never in a position to use a FT on it and don't plan on wildcarding until gw 16. He'll outscore Mccarthy by more than 4 points over the coming games for sure, if not this week.

    If you feel the hit pays off even over the next 5/6, don't be afraid to take it

      I'm not in many mini-leagues this season and that has helped me take more chances. Took a bit last week to get Kane in and it worked out well! I'm trying to stop overthinking and go with my gut

    2. Live Lad
      • 5 Years

      I did McCarthy to Martinez before the price increase. Like you said, he will outscore McCarthy over the coming weeks. Might even score more this week. I have no confidence in S'ton defense.

      Risky to have used my FT but it is worth in the long run.

      Calculated hits are fine. No so much if taken without a head of booze or a knee full of jerk.

    1FT, 1.4m ITB....Any thoughts?

    McCarthy Button
    TAA Saiss Taylor Mitchell Davies
    Salah Sterling Rashford Foden Bissouma
    Antonio Jimenez Brewster

    Lack of Spurs in killing me...should I just pull the trigger on the WC?

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Don’t WC. If you’re intent on getting Spurs assets, you could do Raz and Jimenez to Son and Kane.

    2. TNB
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I think Robertston has been more of an attacking threat as opposed to TAA - he is 0.4 cheaper which would allow you to improve elsewhere.

        In terms of WC - I usually hold on to it until the x mas fixtures but this season is like no other.

        Played my WC for GW 5 as follows which got me 83 points

        McCarthy (Martin)
        Castagne-mitchell-saiss (lamptey-bernado)
        Salah-Son-J Rodriguez-Zaha-Grealish
        Kane-DCL (Bamford)

          I have a load of options for my FT this week. Antonio --> DCL, Foden --> James, Rash --> Son, Davies --> Lamptey........when i look at it though i could make 10 transfers easily and that would suggest WC.

          I'm tempted to WC and that would be my Midfield.

        Is Dier healthy and will play?

      • Inazuma X1

        Any Arsenal def upto 4.7 worth getting once their fixtures turn?

      • Miguel Sanchez

        Anyone tempted by Kilman? Can't see him being dropped right now.

        1. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          feels a pretty fragile pick. on WC I may be tempted but not something I want to have to fix with a FT.

            Have boxed myself into a corner with both him and Ferguson but it just looked a good set of moves last night for exact cash.

            R.James and Richarlison to Kilman and Kane (-4)

            1. No Professionals
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              yes feels like a good pair of moves

        2. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          If I was on WC, he'd be a shoe-in for me.

          But, I'm not willing to use a transfer on it, no

        3. Tonyawesome69
          • 1 Year

          5th def spot

        4. Ginola
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Think he’ll play vs NEW after his oustanding performance. After that, I’m not so sure.

        5. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          he will be dropped once tough fixtures start only 2 games left no point getting him

      • No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        captaincy vote looks touch and go.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Salah and Kane will both have over 100% EO in top 10k this GW

          1. Bubz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            How depressing

      • Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 15 days ago

        If it is possible to ignore the home and away factor, what does the stats look like when both Salah and Mane start? With no fans, Mane captain over Salah this GW could be a great option. He is certainly looking the form player out of the two but Salah seems to be able to score volleys out of nowhere this season.

        Is Barnes to graelish worth a -4 ? Can it pay off in the next 3-4 games?

        1. The Nuttman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          If he can't then he isn't worth buying, 3 really good home fixtures.

        2. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          I sold Barnes this week. Fixtures toughen up and Leic looking a bit lost at the moment (maybe no Vardy?)...

          Grealish is a really nice pick too

      • The Nuttman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Feeling weird, roughly 500k in the world, had 2 FT's before the latest GW and did nothing and I think I'm going to do nothing again but I feel like I should. Any suggestions, no money itb?

        Ryan (WBA H)
        Alexander-Arnold (SHU H), Saiss (NEW H), Robertson (SHU H)
        Salah (SHU H), Son (bur a), Rodriguez (sou (a), Foden (whm a), Klich (avl a)
        Werner (mun a), Jimenez (NEW H)

        Steele, Webster, Walker-Peters, Davis

        1. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          I'd get rid of a Pool DFer. Though I'd understand completely if you wanted to wait until after SHU game.

          TAA or Robbo > Lamptey
          Foden > Grealish

          I'd do something like that...

        2. DK_13
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          If you got nothing to do, instead of wasting ft go for Davis to Brewster

          1. DK_13
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Or Webster to another 4.5 to avoid that double up

          2. The Nuttman
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Davis is 4.4, I'd do the Webster transfer but I like the idea of playing him vs West Brom so it would only be so I could keep sideways transfer possible, I'd probably end up buying him back.

            1. DK_13
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Saw him on the bench so looked at upgrading him. Bottom line is if I was in your place, I would look at my bench and finding the best possible replacement if any.

        3. fantasyfog

        Thoughts on kilman?

        1. No Professionals

          see a few posts above.

          Not interested, 1 sunny day does not a summer make.

        3. KeepCalm

          1 month, 15 days ago

          Yep saw the post above. My bad.

          Gona get him in as a 4th/5th def for James

          I went for him, if I can get the next two starts out of him that'll do

        Over the next four game weeks do you think Jimenez & Ings together would cover Kane's points?

        1. el polako
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Not sure it works like that.
          You have to factor in captaincy & also who is the 2nd player along Kane to have an honest 2 vs 2 comparison.

          1. Tigers Time
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            I'm tempted to go Jimenez & Ings to Kane & Maupay but as both Jimi & Ings retuned I'm not sure.

            1. Tigers Time
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              *returned

              Im keeping Ings and Jimi for now not sure if its right decision though...

        2. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Surely Kane would have another player alongside him. Can't compare two players to one

      • FPLShaqiri
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Team looks ok for next week - what is your most preferred move? 1FT, £3.6 ITB

        Ryan
        TAA, Robbo, Chilwell
        Salah, Rodriguez, Son, Pereira, Podence
        Mitro, Ings

        (Steer, Ayling, Ferguson, Davis)

        I could save, but strong temptation to do Mitro to DCL. I don't usually make transfers out for players with a good fixture, and when the player actually looks decent (Mitro could have had a brace last game and now has CRY), but DCL seems to be the real deal. Podence also not someone I want but think I can hold, or even play Ayling.

        1. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Definitely get rid of Mitro. And DCL is looking like a season keeper to me

        2. ElChapo
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 15 days ago

          If you have your WC, you can maybe get away with that bench for another 2/3 GW's.

          If no WC, i'd save your transfer this week and slowly improve it over the next few weeks.

          1. FPLShaqiri
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            I have 1 great bench option, not sure I need anymore. Unlikely there will be multiple players from my team that all miss out on the same week. If I hear injury news beforehand I can transfer out rather than rely on bench.

        3. Hansel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Keep Mitro

          1. FPLShaqiri
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Looks like you are considering getting rid of Mitrovic yourself... how come you think I should hold then? Are you not tempted to do Mitro to DCL for your team?

        4. TNB
            1 month, 15 days ago

            You need to get DCL in -- its a no brainer

            B) Matip could be a good differential. Don’t think Pool will get too exposed on defence if no more injuries.. Barkley likely on pens too isn’t he?

          To fund Jimenez to Kane for a hit
          A) Sterling to Rodrigues/Rashford
          B) TAA to Regulion
          C) Save since Sterling and TAA has excellent fixtures next 2.

          How was your Gameweek?

          Were any of your players benched? Did you get any injuries? How did your bench perform? Did your captain return?

          Tell us your tales of joy and woe from Gameweek 5, here:

            Saved by Son (c) and Jimi + Saiss pulled me above average for the GW.

            But, if Saiss' goal had stood last night then it could have been a really good week

            Greenwood not playing was a kick in the nuts

            Anyone else on the Werner pain train? A classic case where restraint would have served me better instead of a kneejerk reaction. I do think by the end of the season he will be up there with the top scorers. Not sure Lampard will be there though.

            Captain Son helped out a fair bit. I'm itching to play my Wildcard but might hold longer, want to see if the City defense settles.

            Interesting to say the least...

            Sold Adams and Werner for -4 and hated my life on Saturday evening.

            Then Kane saved my bacon with his captain haul.

            Benched Saiss for Ayling which was frustrating!

              Saiss should not be benched, attacking threat.

                Ayling has attacking threat too

            I don't normally like to put my good scores on, but after the start i've had (28 points in GW 2) I feel like a 98 (-4) was due!

            Like many took a hit to get Kane in and captain him. Only James and Grealish (part of the hit) didn't return. If James had stayed on the bench I'd have gotten Taylor's clean sheet.

            Salah, James R, Ings, Digne, Jimienez and Bruno Fernandes all returned and I thought I had a good week.

            But then Spurs game happened and those who captained Kane killed it in my main ML.

            Just shows how powerfull and important captaincy is.

              1 month, 15 days ago

              yeah nailing the captaincy makes or breaks it imo. previous 2 weeks i'd gone KDB and got 4pts each time.

                Sometimes I think that game without x2 captain points would be more fair and would make every single point count.

            Good because some of the 50/50 calls like Zaha, jimi and foden came off and now have great fixtures for the next Game week

            Best so far due to Kane (C) and Raz though I wish I'd kept Werner

            A smooth week at last. 81 points even without Kane and benching Saiss.

            Did not have a captain fail!

            Good GW. Captain Kane paid off after bringing in on WC.

            Pretty smooth after a rough start and not initially seeing any joy with my wildcard in gw3:

            Smooth: saved 2ft over the international break, took out kdb and Brewster for Kane(c) and bissouma (bench fodder). Only player that blanked was Reece James scored 103 points. Had sterling over Salah, robbo over Trent. Saiss and Jimi topped the week off.

            Rough: Reece James

          13. Rasping Drive
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Decent week. 80 points. Only Pulisic and Brewster failed to return. Son captain.

            No real roughs. Up 2.5m places in last 2 weeks (note: from an atrocious 3.3m to 880k, so nothing to gloat about)

          14. Arteta
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Smooth: 100 (-4) is my highest non DGW score ever! Took a hit and sold de Bruyne alongside Jiménez for Spurs duo.
            Captain Kane, Son, Fernandes, Sterling, Martínez, Digne, Saïss, Rodríguez, Calvert-Lewin all got some returns.

            Rough: Podence blanked again and James cameo cost me 1 more point. Otherwise I can't really complain because I gained almost 1 960 000 places and I'm just outside 1 million after terrible start.

            Green arrow so a good week. Can't complain about much. Salah (C), Son, Havertz, Foden, DCL & Jimi all returned plus 2 CSs banked.

            My own decision making was probably the rough. I started Brewster & James so missed out on a Boly CS from the bench and would have been up on KDB > Sterling if I'd taken the hit I had considered.

            Hopefully another green arrow next week. Closing in on the top 1m! 🙂

            Smooth.... 4th consecutive green arrow (700k rank) and very happy with present team re up and coming fixtures.
            Rough.... having to recover from poor gameweek 1 (2.8 million OR).

            I've dodged all injuries etc so far this season. Wildcard still there for when needed, and a total of -4 in hits so far this season.

            Ranked top 16k so far. If Carlsberg did fantasy football starts...

              Rough.
              Entire defence again, especially VVD injury.

              I was a Rough in the Scoutcast last week (for taking Son and Wilson out for a hit); this week I wild carded for 82, with Son, Kane, Robertson, Martinez, Hamez and Chilwell being the notable improvements on KDB, Jimenez, TAA, McCarthy, Mahrez and Doherty. 30 point gain on my old team and set up well for the next 6 or so; job done.

              1 month, 15 days ago

              First green arrow of the season, despite opting not to do Ings to Kane (c) for a hit. Son (c) and Ings netted me a good return of 33 points, but Kane (c) and Son would have been 45 less the hit.

            • LSK
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Hadn’t scored over 55 points all season so took a minus 8. Ended on 98 points with Kane (c), Son, Sterling scoring double figures and Jimenez, Saiss, Martinez, and Foden all chipping in.

            • Over Midwicket
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              I solve Foden, Ings and Jim for a -8. Not great. So was 8+6+7+8 = 31 points down going into the GW.

              Luckly I got in Kane and Son(c) which gave me 42 points so just about made the points back (would have captained Salah..).

              Overall treading water but still at 3.8mil odd which is strange considering my experience

              Rough: 2 of the 3 players I took out on -8 hauled (Ings & Foden) whilst 2 of the 3 players I brought in blanked (Watkins & Pulisic)

              Smooth: Nobody else blanked apart from those two mentioned above! Son(C) and my double Wolves defence worked a treat for the second GW running...87pts (-8) and rose from 1.2m to 670k in OR. Finally a GW that made me smile rather than grimace!

              Smooth - 97pts with every attacking player returning something.

              Rough - left another 16pts on the bench!

              Since you asked. All smooth this week with a score of 102. Every single player returned except for Grealish collecting 12 bonus points and only 4 points from my bench players.
              Goals from Kane Son DCL Salah Jimenez
              Assists from Kane Son Foden Robbo
              Martinez CS

              Transfers were Kdb + Wood to Grealish + Kane (c) for free!

              Wildcard time!
              Smooth:
              Son, Kane (C), Salah, Saiss, Reguillon and my personal favourite, Barkley for his 11 points.

              Rough, out went Werner Sterling and Jiminez

              Minus Kane captain, 17 point swing, 0.8 value up and a team that is better set up then before.

              Smooth; Lovely double transfer. KdB & Vinagre > Son & Konsa. 17 points netted. Shows the value of saving your moves in these long breaks. Held Werner, Salah(c), Fernandes & DCL all returning.

              Rough ; Fernandes & Mitrovic missed pens. 13 points missed there. Five players scoring 1 or 0!

              70 points but could have been much better.

              Did -8 to switch KdB, Foden and Ings out for Manè, Son (C) and Watkins. The changes gave me 26 points (after deducting the 8 points the transfers cost me) compared to 13 points if I hadn't done the transfers. Also had Sterling, Jimenez, Saiss, DCL and Martinez which came good. Ended up on 80 points overall this GW, and the first green arrows of the season. Very happy that the two hits for Son and Manè payed off.

              I was under pressure because prices were rising, but I was reluctant to wildcard. So right at the beginning of the week, before the break, I got in Kane and Grealish for a hit, as a compromise between getting players early for a less money and wildcarding entire team. I took out Sterling and Adams. I could have taken out Mitrovic and KDB, but I decided these are the two to go. KDB got injured, and I didn't want to take a -8, so I just left him there, and Mitrovic got 0 points. Kane (C) and Wolves went well, thouhg. In the and I wildcarded last night paying 7.7 for DCL and 9.3 for Son, probably ending up with the same team as everyone else got this week already.

              Rough
              Kilmen on bench and pre wildcard team hit 72 and would have hit 85 had I just gone KDB -> son.

              So feels kind of a wasted wc, but well set for next few.

              Wildcarded and got a decent-ish 63 pts.

              The rough is I made last-minute changes to that WC, taking out Saiss and Martinez for Chilwell and Ryan (reasoned that Chilwell has greater attacking threat and nailed, Ryan good longer term fixtures and was nervous about having triple Villa).

              Also went for a maverick captaining of Grealish just before deadline, taking it off Kane

              93 points (-4) and a big move from 350k to 105k overall.

              KDB and DCL out
              Kane and Barkley in

              Best moves I've made in a long time. DCL was a big call but I wanted Kane (C) and my thinking is that I will never captain DCL and I expect his form to taper off a bit. Planning to have Kane-Jimenez-Maupay as my 3.

              Would have captained Salah without Kane so these two transfers represented a huge points uplift.

              Only negatives were Brewster, Trent, Klich.

              Really happy with the look and shape of my team, big green arrow this week and for the first time I'm in a position to save a transfer.

              Rough: Sold Adams and Werner on WC
              Smooth: New WC Team got 90 points with Kane as my captain + Son, Salah, DCL, Saiss, Martinez, Chillwell and Robbo all getting returns.

                Rough: Sold Digne (7p), AWB (8p), Adams (11p) for Ayling(1p), Saiss (benched), Maupay (2p) and played Ryan instead of Martinez...
                Good: Got Hamez and Son and a better looking team for the upcoming weeks

              Rough:
              Sold Werner last GW.
              Sold CheAdams this GW.
              Mitchell Justin Ramsdale could have gotten CSs if only they hold on for few more minutees

              Smooth:
              Replaced Werner with DCL who got me point
              Bought Kane this GW, so in the long run I predict I'll still be happy
              Captained Son too.

              Rough: Mitrovic missing that pen and TAA returning another big one point.

              Smooth: Everyone else in my team returning something, giving me 81 for the week.

              Made an early move by going Barnes (7) and Jimenez (8.5) to Son (9) and Maupay (6.5) to catch price rises or rather not being priced out. Had I not done made the early moves, would almost certainly have gone for KdB (11.5) and Jimenez to Son (C) and Kane (10.6). Had to take a hit on Friday to move KdB sideways for Sterling (C). The early moves set me back about 11 points immediately and no easy way to jump onto Harold Kane bandwagon.

              Other than this a decent week, with a small green arrow but most ML rivals have Kane + Son which means hide behind the sofa time for next 3 weeks whenever Spurs play.

              This was a smooth GW for me. Took -4 to bring in Son (C), Kane and 4.4 bench fodder for Doherty, KDB and Adams.

              Got a total of 80 - 4 = 76 points.

              Smooth - transferred in Son and Kane, captained Kane. Lovely 101 points and into top 500k..

              Rough - Transferred Zaha out for a hit 'cause of his flag. Nearly went with Barkley but opted for Grealish 5 mins pre deadline.

              Overall, feels great with a tad of regret over a silly transfer.

              Probably one of many but did Werner & Adams -> Kane & Brewster (-4) early on, then KDB -> Son (-8 in total) after the injury news.

              Can't work out if I'm more annoyed or happy. Worst decision was choosing Che to go over Mitro!

              I can't decide my free transfer this week, currently toying with the idea of Rodriguez or Son for Barnes. I feel like United and Chelsea mids worth consideration too but prepared to wait a week £2.7m itb

              Martinez
              Saiss Lampety TAA
              Salah (c) Barnes Grealish Pereira

                Son and Rod both a priority. I'd be taking hits to remove Piereira and Barnes. Might mean sacrificing Jimi too.

                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 15 days ago

                  I don't disagree, just not sure it's worth a hit to remove Jimenez before his next two.

                  I made a mistake taking out Rodriguez after buying into the assist the assister hype, trying to be too clever.

              Would really appreciate if City returned to form against Porto tomorrow. I'd feel a lot better about Sterling!

                20 points in 2 GW for Sterling. Nothing to really complain about.
                I think Aguero's return is a great thing for his appeal too. Sterling might be my captain against SHU away

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 15 days ago

                  True but I'd like to see City attack returned to their former glory. Him, Aguero and Kane will be the standout options most likely, could be tricky.

                Would be lovely he's my differential this GW. Have to downgrade him eventually , as team will get unbalanced when also getting Kane in.

              I'm in a pickle this week. Benched KDB so assuming he's ruled out does KDB > Sterling make the most sense?

              The other option is KDB & Brewster > Soucek & Kane (-4) and move from 352 to 343...

              Thoughts appreciated all. Thanks

              Feel harsh on Pulisic but is this worth -4:

              Pulisic/Brewster to Mcginn/Kane?

              Thoughts on this wildcard team?

              Martinez / 4.0
              Lamptey / Saiss / Chilwell / Reguilon / 3.9
              McGinn / Salah / Son / Rodriguez / 4.5
              DCL / Kane / Werner

              I could swap McGinn for Barkley but I think I prefer McGinn?

              Any feedback

                  Decent team

                Podence owners, what are you doing with him? Personally very tempted to give one more week, looked lively last night and could easily have hauled with a little more luck.

                  Holding, was unlucky to not get something last night

                    Risk of being dropped do you think? Always seems to be subbed earlier than Neto...

                  He was unlucky not to get some points last night, and two good fixtures coming up. Hold for me.

                  Keeping for 1-2 more. Barkley looks interesting

                  Sold for Barkley. Podence reminds me of Deulofail or whatever he was called. Runs around a lot and has moments of greatness but generally flatters to deceive. He was far better than Neto today but yet again it was him who got hauled. His rolling around every time he gets touched is pissing me off too. If it turns out Barkley is on pens it will be a bonus, but he sure looks nailed and fixtures are great for ages.

                James and Wilson > Kilman and Kane?

                Only have 0.1M spare so nervous about waiting until after Thursdays cup game and missing out

                  Good moves, you have a little bit of wriggle room but unfortunately both Kilman and Kane are at the top page of FPLstats and could rise together over the same night. Keep a close eye on things this evening.

                    Cheers! Yeah, worried they'll both go up tonight or tomorrow

                Podence to who for the same/similar price?

                  Maybe McGinn with those fixtures? Otherwise Soucek probably
