Pro Pundits - Lateriser

Who are the best West Ham players in FPL ahead of their Gameweek 8 fixture swing?

Three-time top 200 finisher Lateriser takes a deep dive into the Premium Members Area statistics as he looks at the Hammers’ best Fantasy options for the weeks and months ahead.


West Ham United have impressed in the league so far this season. While David Moyes is everyone’s favourite meme, he’s giving it back to the critics by making some really good decisions.

At the back-end of the last campaign, West Ham were very close to getting relegated and Moyes made some difficult decisions in benching a lot of expensive talent – which paid off.

That trend has continued this season and the Hammers look like a completely different side. They sit amongst the best five teams in the league for shots in the box and are also amongst the top five for shots in the box conceded. Given that they have already faced Arsenal, Wolves, Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City so far, those numbers look even more impressive.

Moyes’ troops are about to embark on a great run of fixtures after their game against Liverpool this weekend, which extends right the way through until Gameweek 20. Keeping that in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to take a closer look at options from West Ham in both attack and defence.

As you can see above, this is a very impressive fixture run for the Hammers and they look primed for offering a lot of value at both ends of the pitch. After Liverpool at the weekend, they only face Manchester United and Chelsea from the traditional top six between Gameweeks 8 and 20.

Defence

I hope this deep dive into West Ham helps you with your decisions. Good luck for the Gameweek!

      Sold Zaha for Son last GW, not a good move because there were better options and should've moved someone else instead(eg. Barnes). Looking to make things right again, so, would you do:

      a) Barnes->Zaha,
      b) Barnes->Someone else
      c) Upgrade defence
      d) Keep for now

      Team is:
      Patricio // 4.0
      Robbo | Mitchell | KWP | Lamptey // Taylor
      Son | Barnes | Rashford | Salah | Grealish
      DCL | Jimenez // 4.5

          I'd be reluctant to get Zaha in before Wolves away.

          Barnes > Grealish or save and re-evaluate next week with 2 FTs

                My main memory is the crowd chanting "Fergie, Fergie, sign him up!" about William Prunier who was on trial but then he had an absolute nightmare the following game.

            First Premier League goal:
            Colin Hendry, 1995

            Put one in with his head in the 12th minute for Blackburn at Villa Park.
            Game ended 0-1; was more entertained pummeling the Villa mascot with snowballs before KO.

            The only live game for me is 0-0 manchester united vs liverpool in february 2019..that after 6600 miles / 10000 km journey..little bit disappointed with the scoreline 😮

            Gallas I believe.

            Walcott in the 2007 League Cup Final is the earliest game I can really remember being at live though.

              Longest added time I can remember, JT knocked out by Eboue, three red cards. What a game.

                  Being 5millionth overall has made me hit the WC button, so this is what i have come up with;

                  Zaha* Foden* Son Salah Soucek

                  When will West Ham's press conference be?
                  No chance of word before deadline on Friday night?

                  I really wanted to ditch Maupay for Antonio. He will destroy Gomez and his +1 on Saturday night if he plays

                  1 month, 3 days ago

                  I got rid of Soucek on my wildcard. He looked fairly threatening and the stats aren’t bad, but I realised the improved fixtures just meant he would go from being someone I was happy to have first sub each week to a frequent benching headache - too good to bench, not quite good enough for regular starts. Given how the rest of my wildcard went this week, though, my decision will likely turn out to ill-advised!

                  1. Pukki Blinders
                    • 1 Year
                    1 month, 3 days ago

                    That’s fair though think he remains a great enabler at 4.9, good enough to start in my eyes

                  • 6 Years

                  Anything on Ward?

                  WILL you still capt salah with liv injury crisis? Or just go for kane?

                  1. BoleynWin
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 3 days ago

                    I can’t see how this injury crisis is going to effect Salah or any of the Pool attackers negatively. If they do end up conceding goals because of an awful back four then the front lads will have to go full throttle to simply score more than the opponent?

                    1. Zim0
                      • 2 Years
                      1 month, 3 days ago

                      Or they try to be more careful and compact.

                        1 month, 3 days ago

                        Correct, we've already seen this trend.

                        I'll probably be capping Salah less than I would have. Fulham still looks like a good bet for a fixture to cap him, but not sure about any others in the near future.

                      Yeah, I kinda miss how it was a few seasons ago where they would have to score 3 or 4 to win and usually did

                  Any thoughts on Batshuayi?I know there are so many good forwards but if Antonio is out i am thinking to get him next gw.

                  1. Reyson
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 3 days ago

                    Why batshuayi?

                    1. wulfranian
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 3 days ago

                      At this price i don't like many other forwards.Good fixtures for Palace and i liked his last two performances.

                      1. Zim0
                        • 2 Years
                        1 month, 3 days ago

                        Bamford and Adams much better choices

                        1. wulfranian
                          • 4 Years
                          1 month, 3 days ago

                          Bad fixtures though.

                          1. Zim0
                            • 2 Years
                            1 month, 3 days ago

                            Crystal Palace face Wolves, Leeds, and Burnley next 3. That's not good for attacking players 😛 especially since palace aren't an attacking team

                            1. wulfranian
                              • 4 Years
                              1 month, 3 days ago

                              I will take him next gw.Leeds at homea bad fixture?Very good imo.Burnley away is a tough one.Newcastle and West brom are very good fixtures.Far bettet fixtures for Palace.

                        CP is not that good. These "good" fixtures are also good fixtures for CP opponents.

                        Bats is Bum too

                        He might score, just a curious choice. It's differential for sure.

                          He is a risk and a differential for sure.

                    Yeah I am considering this.
                    I have 2FT so will use one.

                    Need to deal with one of these
                    Maupay
                    Aurier
                    Grealish (anytime I own him........ zilch)

                    Grealish to Zaha is troubling my mind as Grealish does have good fixtures too.......... and Zaha always burns me too!

                    Thinking Maupay to Antonio if I get news he is fit (my preferred option as he will destroy Pool defence). But Batshyui was my 2nd consideration - I don't like Leeds upcoming fixtures so probably not going to load in Bamford. Similar with Bewster. Price is attractive to give me funds...... but........ I dont think the fella will score until February....

                      Brighton`s performance against WBrom was bad imo.Burnley at home is a good fixture.If Antonio is fit then get him.If not then i would keep Maupay.And i would keep Grealish.Villas fixtures from gw9 are great.

                    If he equaled all the goals he ever scored for Chelsea over the next 5 weeks, what’s that, 2?

                    West Ham should bribe a nurse to declare Salah has COVID, then say, "MYYYY BAD!" after the match.

                    FPL would explode.

                      Salah probably isn’t going out to nightclubs and partying with a bunch of people all the time...he only gets it if some party animal like Milner brings it back to the team

                        I have him, but not 100%...I think anytime he plays a full game midweek it’s possible he’s not in Pep’s plan for the weekend...but he’s probably still worth starting

                          You’d think so but then I think last week in cl he sat out and then didn’t start pl either! It’s literally roulette!

                          But, he’s in form, I have him and I think he’ll start

                    2 FTs, and very unsure how to use them (0.0 ITB):

                    Meslier (Button)
                    Robertson, Reguilon, KWP (Lamptey, Mitchell)
                    Salah, Son, Pulisic, Rodriguez, Grealish
                    Kane, DCL (Brewster)

                        Hmm - if he had a bad fixture, or I didn't think he'd play this weekend, I'd agree - but I like his fixture, and I think he'll play...

                          Mourinho is weird and i can see him playing Davies again. Not worth having such an expensive rotating defender

                    Which move would do do?

                    A) Aurier to Dias
                    B) Grealish to Zaha
                    C) Grealish to Foden
                    D) Maupay to Antonio
                    E) Maupay to Batshyui
                    F) Maupay to Bamford

                        Don't take my word for it tho. That's just my personal annoyance with Maupay making me say that 😛

                          Yeah. Can't believe I brought him in.....
                          Really want Antonio to be fit.
                          Easy decision if he was

                          Your honesty is commendable Zim0. Really it's not just you. I've never owned Maupay and D or F depending on Antonio fitness sound very good.

                          Do you (OP) have the right team linked? I don't see Aurier in it, so I can't tell if it's a problem for you if he misses out.

                              Yes, you have a team linked https://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/445309/history in your profile.

                              You should be able to link the right team by changing 445309 to your current FPL ID, which you can find by clicking View Gameweek History (in the URL).

                                  You look like you have enough defenders so I wouldn't bother with Aurier atm.

                        I owned him last season for about 6 weeks, and this week for a couple games now. Nothing for me!! Bit of a show pony with little end product.
                        So annoyed. I wildcarded and last moment took Zaha out as he was flagged. Of course Zaha has hooverd the points since and Grealish back to his normal self....

                        I have Chilwell already. Aurier will surely play this weekend (unless he plays tomorrow)
                        There was no indication as to why he was not even on the bench at weekend?

                          its like James pick in Chel def. if he plays he can give nice returns but you will never know will he start. if you are fine with it than ok but I like nailed players.

                    Only have enough confidence to play one WHU player as we see the same team mentality with West Ham every year. They seem to have one patch of good form during the season, can beat all the good teams they come across in the period, then lose the confidence and perform like relegation strugglers for the majority of the rest of it

                          and if you had to pick one cheaper striker?

                            Bamford or Adams

                      Very Good Article:

                      I want to get Antonio but these are the concerns-

                      (1) He seems injured or vulnerable
                      (2) Bowen and Fornals are Mids and I can more easily incorporate into my team
                      (3) Getting Antonio means eliminating a productive forward like DCL, Kane, Bamford, and other options
                      (4) Fornals can play great but not score, same with Bowen
                      (5) The Wingbacks are good, but WH is not a clean sheet club

                      2FT may as well use one but not quite sure on what, any ideas appreciated.

                      Was thinking one of the 4.5 defenders to Kilman to free up extra funds..

                      Those with Son and Kane and no WC, what's the plan for GW9 onwards? Keeping one or shipping both? Considering keeping Kane and shipping Son to KDB/Sterling

                        one will defo go for City mid. will decide leter which one.

                        I'm gonna be keeping Son till he gets injured. Kane to Mane or KDB or Sterling in GW10. Depends who's on the best form by then

                          And liverpool/city rotate really well in fixtures for a lot of weeks from then on so that'll be my transfer each week. Mane to KDB/Sterling. Sterling/KDB back to Mane. Hopefully i get a lot of captain points

                        Not sure what to do this week. Sitting on 2FT and 0.2itb. Would be keen to get two WHU assets and eventually MCI as well but not yet this week! Podence can go but 5.7 does not get me much.

                          I'm almost the same as you bud. Would need to downgrade TAA to upgrade Podence, but just don't think i can be bothered this week. Might switch my Lascelles to Balbuena to avoid wasting one this week, then do TAA and Podence next week to maybe Bowen and a defender.

                        Since I'm 0.1 short to make a simple Aguero to Kane transfer, I'l take a hit for Barnes and Aguero out. What's the best option to get in:
                        A) Pulisic and Werner
                        B) Bruno and Wilson
                        C) Pulisic and Ings
                        D) Bale and Cavani
                        E) Bowen and Kane
                        F) Rashford and DCL

                        Hi folks, so I have an unusual issue. 2 FT’s and 2m in the bank but don’t really have any pressing issues. Any suggestions are welcome.

                        Meslier,

                        Robo, Saiss, Konsa,

                        Son, Zaha, James, Havertz

                        DCL, Werner, Kane

                        Ryan, Ayling, C.Taylor, Bissouma

                        Havertz and Werner likely the weak links, but they have good fixtures and I have done well from keeping patient this far.

                        Lukewarm on the idea of a Havertz to Salah and Werner to Antonio. Likelihood is I won’t be captaining Salah and my strat to date is to distribute the funds.

                        The against the grain move would be a Havertz to Grealish and C.Taylor to TAA as I think both will likely return decent contributions long term.

                        Thoughts?

                          Best policy is to think what your team would look like if on a wildcard with the next 5-6 weeks in mind in particular. Then choose the best transfers you want immediately from that

                        I don't like a lot about my team but lots have decent fixtures this week so I'm tempted to save even with 4.0m ITB. Do you think that is wise?

                        Mitrovic ~ Kane ~ C.Wilson

                        4.0 ~ Mitchell ~ Bissouma ~ C.Taylor [1FT + 4.0m ITB]

                        2nd in my league but the 6 next people below me have Son & Kane. I have neither. Should I get one of them in or risk it without?
