Champions League

The best players to sign and captain for UCL Fantasy Matchday Two

Fantasy Premier League managers frustrated from a weekend of disappointing domestic action might find the perfect remedy in the second round of UEFA Champions League Fantasy.

Matchday One produced some huge scores and it looks like there are some great match-ups to deliver a repeat performance in Matchday Two, which begins tonight. 

In this article I will discuss the captaincy options for the upcoming round, as well as players to bring into, and ship out of, your team. 

Captains Sensible

Last week I recommended Lionel Messi (€12.0m), Romelu Lukaku (€11.0m) and Duván Zapata (€9.5m), who all scored double digits in opening week, so I am for a 100% success rate this time around.

Tuesday, October 27

Sensible

When I picked out Robert Lewandowski (€12.0m) as obvious candidate for Matchday One, he managed to disappoint, despite Bayern Munich putting four past Atlético Madrid. But I still think he’s a good option for Matchday Two, especially after netting a perfect hat-trick against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday took him to ten goals in just four Bundesliga games this season.

Bayern are visiting Lokomotiv Moscow, who lost 2-1 to Rotor Volgograd at the weekend. Having watched their 2-2 draw with RB Salzburg last week, the Russian side could have conceded five if the Austrian champions had their shooting boots on. Lewandowski definitely has his shooting boots on at the moment and I have absolute faith he’ll have them packed for the trip to Moscow. 

Differential 

With giants Liverpool and Bayern both boasting appealing fixtures this week, I had a plethora of choices for Tuesday night’s differential pick. Avoiding both sides, I have gone for Atlético Madrid’s new star man Luis Suarez (€10.0m). 

Owned by just 5% of UCL Fantasy managers, the former Barcelona forward has scored four goals in his first five league games for Atleti. With Diego Costa (€8.5m) still out injured, Suarez is guaranteed to start as the main striker for Madrid’s noisy neighbours. They host RB Salzburg tonight, whose defence looked ropey at best in their opening match against Lokomotiv.

Wednesday, October 28

Sensible

Although Erling Haaland (€11.0m) is another great pick for Wednesday’s games, I’ve plumped for PSG’s Kylian Mbappe (€11.0m). The Frenchman came off the bench to score twice late on at the weekend, meaning he’s got the deadly combination rest and form. 

All of Mbappe’s UCL Fantasy goals last season came away from home and PSG will be angry and in need of a big win after their fairly dire defeat to Manchester United last Tuesday. Istanbul Basaksehir looked pretty toothless in their loss to RB Leipzig and should be the perfect opposition for PSG to re-announce themselves as a source of Fantasy gold.

Differential

Despite being a Chelsea fan, I have not placed much faith in Frank Lampard’s side in Fantasy Football games over the last two seasons. Timo Werner (€10.5m) finally got himself on the scoresheet against Southampton with a spectacular brace and after consecutive goalless draws have stopped Super Frank’s Kepa-related night terrors, he might finally focus on trying to score a goal. 

Krasnodar are the perfect opposition to aid in this quest, a side already low in genuine quality which have been hit hard by injuries and absences recently. Their distinctly uninspiring 1-1 draw with Rennes marked them out as, well, distinctly uninspiring, and their 3-1 loss to Spartak Moscow at the weekend won’t have helped confidence. I fancy Werner to do some damage in Russia. 

Who should I sign?

With the next few rounds building up to Matchday Five proving the most popular time to deploy the Wildcard, I have picked five teams to target over that period. 

Now they cannot play each other for three Matchdays, Bayern Munich and Atlético Madrid both have three favourable fixtures against Lokomotiv Moscow and RB Salzburg coming up, which could provide some big points hauls. 

For the reigning champions, in-game defender Joshua Kimmich (€6.5m) continues to play out of position as a defensive midfielder. He got a 10-point haul last time out, another assist at the weekend and will continue to be nailed on and involved at both ends. As close to an essential player as you can find in this game. If you’re looking to save some cash, Lucas Hernandez (€5.0m) is now first-choice at left-back for the foreseeable future after Alphonso Davies’ (€6.0m) injury. 

Moving forward, Bayern’s attack look prime targets to bring in, depending on who’s going to start. Although Serge Gnabry (€10.0m) is confirmed to be back after a false positive COVID test, I prefer Thomas Müller (€10.0m) starting behind Lewandowski. 

Gnabry has tended to start on the right wing for Bayern so far this season, with his three league goals all coming against Schalke, when he started on his preferred left-hand side. We have the benefit of seeing the Bayern line-up before the deadline this week, so I’d watch out for whoever starts on the left for them. If it’s Gnabry, expect big things, but in the more likely event it’s the returning Leroy Sane (€9.5m) or the in-form Kingsley Coman (€8.0m), they could do well too.

Staying in Group A, Atlético play two of their next three at home and are now on a 21-game unbeaten streak in the league. Their defence remains as mean as ever, and I’d look to bring in the kindly-priced Renan Lodi (€5.0m). The left-back is nailed-on to start and can provide at both ends, also bringing in three points for balls recovered last week. Felipe (€4.5m) is slightly cheaper and recovered eight balls last week, but with Jose Giminez (€5.0m) returning from injury his place in the team may be under threat. 

Moving to Group E, Chelsea and Sevilla both have games against Krasnodar and Rennes coming up. I’ve already mentioned Werner as my favourite pick for Chelsea, but Jorginho (€6.0m) seems to have solidified his place in the starting XI, is on penalties and recovered six balls against Sevilla. 

For the Spanish outfit, Diego Carlos (€5.0m) brought in nine ball-recoveries last week. Their defence has been particularly strong so far this season and with Jules Koundé (€4.0m) still out with COVID-19, Carlos is the best source of points for Sevilla.

The final team to target is Borussia Dortmund. Their Matchday Two opponents Zenit St Petersburg looked poorer than expected against Club Brugge and lost their most recent domestic fixture at home to Rubin Kazan over the weekend. 

Jadon Sancho (€10.0m) is yet to hit form, but expect it to come soon, quite possibly on Wednesday evening. In defence, Thomas Meunier (€5.0m) and Mats Hummels (€5.0m) delivered 11 ball recoveries in their loss to Lazio and Dortmund will be looking to get points on the board in their group. Expect big points for players across all five of these teams. 

Who has to go?

There were several key injuries around Europe’s top leagues over the weekend which impact the upcoming round of Champions League matches. 

Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho (€9.0m) picked up a knock in El Clasico, which will keep him out until at least after the international break. Sergio Aguero (€10.0m) can expect to be out for a similar length of time for Manchester City, leaving them without a recognised striker yet again. 

Although he was benched for the game against Atlético last week, Davies was expected to return to the line-up for Bayern this week until he was injured just three minutes into their domestic match on Saturday. 

All three are out for at least the next two Champions League Matchdays and should be looking to leave your squad. 

Having played their easiest games of the group stages, RB Salzburg, Lokomotiv Moscow, Rennes and Krasnodar now have a tough run of fixtures. 

Any players owned from those squads, such as Sehrou Guirassy (€6.5m) and Patson Daka (€7.5m), will likely have a fairly barren few Matchdays coming up. 

Atalanta and RB Leipzig also have three challenging fixtures on the horizon and, although I wouldn’t take them out just yet, be aware that they have tough games through Matchday Three and Four. Therefore, try not to pile-up on high-scoring Matchday One assets like Zapata and Angelino (€5.0m). 

The same goes with Club Brugge players like Charles de Ketelaere (€4.5m), another Matchday One hero, who now faces an in-form Lazio side and Borussia Dortmund home and away. 

With that, good luck all. Here’s to hoping for another great UCL Fantasy Matchday.

    Keep or sell Sterling?

    Team currently

    Martinez
    Saiss Reguilon Lamptey
    Sterling Son Salah Podence
    Werner DCL Jimi

    Macey Mitchell Dunne Burke

    Don’t hate my team but definitely need some better GWs

    1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen

      Don't we all. I'd hold. Team os fine.

    2. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years

      Keep

    3. skodaole2
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 8 hours ago

      Podence seems the only changeable choice of your mid. Also Lamptey away at Spurs doesnt look a great option. Would wait for midweek games and then decide, but would probably change one of the two, not Sterling with Kun and Jesus out he seems the most possible to score

      1. Crofty92
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Thanks! Will have a look mid week at some possible changes for Lamptey/Podence

      Love seeing you guys. Gives an alternative view to certain situations. However, as we all know this season, the talking and the walking seem so far away from each other. 😉

      Viva La Upside Chasing.

      @Laterizer Are we selling our Spurs assets for United and City assets after the WBA game?

  3. Pegboy
    • 10 Years
    27 days, 8 hours ago

    Ryan (Forster)
    Saiss Semedo James (Lamptey Mitchell)
    Son Salah Zaha Foden (Anguissa)
    Kane (c) DCL Jimi

    2FT £1.3m

    a) James > Chilwell
    b) Ryan > Martinez

    I don't normally do GK transfers outside of wildcards, but feels a good time.

    I was planning to ship Saiss + Jimi next week, but if I do option B, I may have to remove James instead

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

      At this point with only 0.2 difference in price I think Mendy may be the better option than Martinez

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

        But A is the more pressing move

        1. Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          27 days, 8 hours ago

          I guess I'm gambling James might get the start this week, but it feels unlikely. He definitely needs to go soon.

      2. Pegboy
        • 10 Years
        27 days, 8 hours ago

        Cheers, hadn't considered him, but it's a good suggestion.

    2. skodaole2
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Agree with Miguel, nothing wrong with GK transfers when you have no other issues. However, check the midweek games first, if James plays in midweek maybe it will be wiser to change him asap

  4. OleGGMU
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 8 hours ago

    Ryan
    Chilwell, Coady, Justin
    Salah, Sterl, Son, JRod
    Ings (c), Bamford, DCL
    Bench : Butts, Barkley, Dallas, Fergie
    1ITB
    G2G?
    Current idea is to ship Jrod next GW for Puli/Havertz or downgrade to Greal/Zaha/Bowen

    Advice much appreciated lads

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      27 days, 8 hours ago

      Save the FT

      1. OleGGMU
        • 1 Year

        Cheers for the reply mate

    2. skodaole2
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Wow benching Barkley seems so wrong. Definitely dont do any transfers, and i dont know if you should bench one of the Everton players or Bamford for Barkley.

  5. LOLarov
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    27 days, 8 hours ago

    R.James --> Chilwell with FT?

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

      Yes

      1. LOLarov
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        27 days, 8 hours ago

        ye I am thinking the same, can bare waiting for the teamsheet. I do think James is explosive when he wants to be

    2. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      27 days, 8 hours ago

      Depends on the rest of your team, FTs and £, but in isolation it's a good move.

      1. LOLarov
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        27 days, 8 hours ago

        I have 2FT and 1.3m ITB and no clue what else to do its almost trying to burn one.

        Martinez
        TAA James Saiss
        Son Salah Foden Podence
        DCL Kane Jimmy

        I could move podence and would have 6.8m but nobody in that price range worth moving him too!! That is my major issue.

        1. Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          27 days, 8 hours ago

          Bowen, Foden or Barkley probably your best options.

          But James > Chilwell is solid.

          1. Pegboy
            • 10 Years
            27 days, 8 hours ago

            Sorry, just spotted you already have Foden

  6. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 8 hours ago

    Which combination for the next 2?

    A) Werner (bur, SHU), Chilwell (SHU)
    B) Vardy (lee, WOL), Cresswell (FUL)

  7. LewanGOALski
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    27 days, 8 hours ago

    2 FTs
    0.1 itb

    Martinez
    Robbo - Chilwell - Saiss
    Salah - Son - Hamez - Grealish
    Kane - DCL - Maupay

    Soucek - Mitchell - Dallas

    As I am leaning towards sticking with Maupay yet another week or 2, what should I do here?

    Burn the transfer?
    Mitchell ➡ Kilman?
    Sth else..?

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      27 days, 8 hours ago

      Dallas > Targett/Coufal

      I'm not sure Kilman is any more nailed than Mitchel, and he has worse fixtures.

      1. LewanGOALski
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 8 hours ago

        Coufal over Masuaku you think?

        I was leaning towards getting Cresswel in Saiss’ place in GW8, but maybe Dallas ➡ Masuaku/Coufal is also the way...

  8. Fit_to_drop
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 8 hours ago

    Any points given in FPL for a goal-line clearance by a player (with keeper beaten)? Thinking of Harry Kanes great header last night with Lloris rooted to the spot.

    Does it even register on the bonus points system?

    1. FPL_Hazards
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      He was rewarded in Sky, don’t think it is recognised in FPL.

      1. Fit_to_drop
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Keeper gets a bunch of points (6?) for saving a peno. This isnt far behind that.

Tim still leads, by virtual of his superior overall rank (90,573rd).
    Peter Tind in League 2, Division 2 and David Stanton in League 3, Division 2 have won all six of their matches so far, as also have many managers in Leagues 5 to 9.
    The Head-to-Head GW6 results and GW7 fixtures will be included in TopMarx’s next ‘Best of the FFScout Community’ and ‘Complete Guide’ articles.

    The safety score for GW6 in TorresMagic’s Last Man Standing (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/33020/standings/c) (code: 48n69x) is expected to be 34, with at least 194 managers being eliminated (https://www.livefpl.net/LMS). New joiners must have passed all previous safety scores (https://torresmagic.webs.com/lmsupdate.htm).

    Christos Tsaras Sui (FPL Greece) is still top of the Fantasy Football Scout Network mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/693919/standings/c) but has slipped to 22,727th overall.

    Mat Williams (Matzi11a) is the new leader of the FFS Mods & Cons mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/581/standings/c). He is now 106k overall, one point ahead of Chris Atkinson (RMT’s Professor). This is Mat’s 12th FPL season, with three top 4k finishes, the best of which was 1,053rd in 2017/18.

    Rich Booth is the new leader not only of my Top 10k Any Season mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/348/standings/c) (code: 8kcvzq) but also of PDM’s Top 1k ANY season mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/40728/standings/c) (code: 2agvvx) and is 6,847th overall. This is his 11th FPL season, with three successive top 2k finishes between 2014/15 and 2016/17, the best of which was 307th in 2016/17.

    Elias Kharma (@FPLMason), who previously led my Top 10k Any Season mini-league, is one of 13 new entries to my Multiple Top 10k Finishes mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/473582/standings/c) (code: 8t42p6) for teams with two or more top 10,000 finishes, and has immediately taken the lead despite slipping to 25,476th overall. He has had two previous top 8k finishes.

    Benjamin Teo is still top of Chaballer’s Top 1k Hall of Fame mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/74508/standings/c) (code: mr8dyh) but has slipped to 43,630th overall.

    Sng Jungyang is still top of Skooldaze’s FPL Vets 2006 or before mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/440874/standings/c) but has slipped to 113k overall.

    2017/18 FPL Champion Yusuf Sheikh is still top of Simon March’s FPL Champions League (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/1367/standings/c) and is now 158k overall.

    Nwobu Ebube is the new leader of Greyhead’s The Next Great and The Good mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/143783/standings/c) and is 12,558th overall. This is his seventh FPL season, with a best previous finish of 201k. Last week’s leader, Md Masud Parves, played his Wildcard but only scored 35. He did captain Kane and get 11 points from Son, but he also got -2 from Digne and left Walker-Peters (5) and Riedewald (9) on the bench.

    2. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Not a legend, more a leg-end but I would say your attack and midfield is fine, its defence you need to look at. Regulion subject to rotation, lamptey is decent but playing for a side who will be under pressure, Mitchell not nailed (or wont be when PVA gets match fit) and Leeds can ship goals too. Would like to see Chilwell or Saiss in there so that you have 3 nailed prem defenders.

    3. DMP
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Great looking team. Mitchell or Reguilon out (safety of starts), in order no to burn one FT?

    4. FPL_Hazards

      Yeah thanks lads, keen on Chilwell, just wish Reguilon was nailed

    what are people's views on Werner. Still seems to make his way in to a lot of people's thinking.

    Is it stat based? From what I've seen he hasn't really passed the eye test.

      I’m keeping for now.

    3. Boly Would
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Keeping for these next couple of fixtures. He looked good against Southampton.

    4. Seanigula
      • 11 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      He’s bound to occasionally do something, but there are lots of better, cheaper, more consistent options

  14. Daniel - Go Granville

    Lewandowski captain, Salah vice. Done. Good luck to all.

    1. Seanigula
      • 11 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      I can’t see Salah starting

    2. St Pauli Walnuts

      You talking about fanteam? No vice on official one.

    I would like to continue having 2 free transfer each gw but...

    Mitrovic -> Bamford, and save the other transfer
    Dunne + Mitrovic -> Kilman + Bamford, just in case Saiss will be benched

    Martínez
    TAA, Saïss, Lamptey
    Son, Salah, Fernandes, Grealish
    Ings, Mitrovic, Jiménez

    Button, Burke, Mitchell, Dunne
    2 free transfer, 0.2 million in the bank

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      I think no2 is the more prudent move. You are a bit exposed on bench otherwise.

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Thanks. I dont like points on my bench so normally my bench players are not playing - but might change my mind this season.

    2. skodaole2
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      I d do the Dunne -> Kilman definitely. About the Mitro - Bamford, better wait for midweek games to see if you have any other issues

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Yes thanks! - I will wait to Friday.

  16. Jimjam
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Martinez // Steer
    Robertson, Chilwell, Saiss // Walker-Peters, Mitchell
    Salah, Son, Rodriguez, Grealish // Stephens
    Kane, Calvert-Lewin, Maupay

    2FT, 0.2 in bank

    Maupay --> Antonio?

    Antonio is playing Liverpool away this week, but they have been conceding lots of goals. Maupay is away to Spurs.

    1. skodaole2
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Brighton play better vs the good teams, but i d do it. WHU seem to play really good football compared to last 3-4 years

    2. Boz
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Think that’s my move too

  17. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    27 days, 7 hours ago

    Best move here?

    Martinez Steer
    TAA Robbo Konsa Mitchell Johnson
    Salah Sterling Hamez Pereira Anguissa
    Ings DCL Maupay

    A. TAA + Pereira > Kilman + Son(-4)
    B. James + TAA > Son + Chilwell (-4) if James is injured
    C. Sterling > Son
    D. TAA + Sterling + Maupay > Dallas + Son + Kane (-8)

    Appreciate feedback

  18. rubberdignerapids

    Reguillon out or roll the transfer?

    Martinez / Forster
    Chilwell / Reguillon / Robbo / Kilman / Lewis
    Salah / Son / Hames / Grealish / Bissouma
    Kane / Antonio / DCL

    0ITB 1 FT

  19. Fit_to_drop
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 7 hours ago

    Had 2 free transfer this week so just did the obvious ones (pre price rises) to cash in (Wilson to Bamford to catch price rise and bank some money, Hamez to Zaha - think Everton could be heading into a difficult patch)

    GK: Martínez
    DEF: Saïss Robertson Chilwell
    MID: Zaha* Son Salah Grealish
    FWD: DCL Kane Bamford*

    BENCH: Forster Kilman Mitchell Bissouma

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      How.is Hamez to Zaha an obvious transfer?

      1. Fit_to_drop
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        True. Obvious only to me probably. I think Everton have one decent fixture (FUL) in the next 8 and could be heading for a sticky patch. I think they overperformed in the opening 5 fixtures. All gut on my part.

      2. Seanigula
        • 11 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        One is viewed as out of form and one in form at around the same price

  20. umerlfc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    27 days, 7 hours ago

    Better option in a 3-4-3?

    A) Cresswell + 4.6m 5th Mid
    B) Coufal/Masuaku + Soucek 5th Mid

    1. Boz
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      A

      Bissouma is fine for a 5th mid

  21. Silent Friend
    • 9 Years
    27 days, 7 hours ago

    Temped to do Maupay (Tot) to Bamford (LEI) -4!
    Leed is too good

    1. The Hunt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Bamford is the new Lewandowski 😀

      1. Silent Friend
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        problem is I could need antonio instead 2 weeks later

    2. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Not worth a hit

      1. Silent Friend
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        long term paid off!!!

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          You just said you are probably removing him for Antonio down the line. How is it long term..

    3. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      100%!

  22. Paulybaby123
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      So the Bayern line up is put.. Coman or Muller who's more dangerous!?

      1. The Train Driver
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Coman I would say but will get less minutes, Gnabry on bench...

    • Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Is it looking alright? Who do I captain? And is the bench order ok?

      Martinez
      TAA James Dallas
      Salah Sterling Son Foden
      DCL Ings Bamford

      Steere Podence Mitchell Lamptey

      1. Duffy Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Looks good.
        Son (C)

      2. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Yeah, nothing wrong with that, who are you looking to shift Podence for ?

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Keeping for 2 weeks. Planning to do Foden + Podence + TAA to Bruno + Bissouma + 5.0 def in GW 9.

      3. skodaole2
        • 8 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        I d captain Sterling as a differential, thinking of bringing a MCI asset myself now that their ownership is low. Bench is fine. Good luck

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Thanks. Sterling away is always a good option. I am actually looking at moving out Foden after two weeks. Foden + Podence + TAA to Bruno + Bissouma + 5.0 def

    • Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Im going to have a punt on double villa def this week, probably backfire but doesn’t seem any worse than the 2 pointer I’ll get off lamptey or the rotation risk of Mitchell and it’s a decent pay off if it works

      1. skodaole2
        • 8 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Did it last week, and benched double LEI defence, cant say i m too happy. But definitely better than playing Lamptey or Mitchell this GW. Good luck

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          Cheers, with few CS knocking about I feel like there is a good upside there, in reality i should have got Dallas, Ayling or kwp instead of Konsa haha

          1. skodaole2
            • 8 Years
            27 days, 7 hours ago

            I got Martinez and Targett in GW 2 WC thinking of using them both in the good fixtures. Didnt expect last GWs game but we cant chase lost points. If you take this week exclusively, having double AVL defence doesnt seem that bad. Clean sheets are so random that you should maybe play both every week regardless of the fixture

    • Slitherene

      4. In a Rush
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        I’m eying up one of these 2 or maybe ings as my Maupay replacement have enough to go Kane but like a mini league differential. Really not sure what to do I like Werners fixtures but will he deliver!?

            Going Muller bud! Much of a muchness really both good options

          Lucas Digne's red card ban has been downgraded to just one match. Confirmed here > https://twitter.com/Everton/status/1321130789808021505?s=20
