Best FPL replacements for Digne according to FFS Hall of Fame leader Fábio Borges

Fantasy Premier League has become a difficult game in the last few weeks, with managers at all levels of the overall rankings struggling with the unpredictable nature of the 2020/21 season.

I have also fallen foul of the frustration. After an excellent start to the season, my team massively underperformed in the last two Gameweeks. I fell from a place inside the top 10,000 to an overall rank of 177,000 in the span of just nine days, mostly due to a horrible Gameweek 6, in which I only got 35 points.

Even though I have some big decisions to make before Friday’s deadline, I am still eager and ready to prepare my team for Gameweek 7.

My team in Gameweek 6

Even though I never worry that much about rankings this early in the season, I am slightly concerned that my transfers haven’t been working at all. In fact, out of five transfers in so far, only Andrew Robertson (£7.1m) delivered an attacking return and everyone else either blanked, got injured like Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) or, in the case of Reece James (£5.0m), fell victim to Frank Lampard’s rotation.

Ahead of Gameweek 6, I decided to use some of my money in the bank to upgrade Michail Antonio (£6.3m) to Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) and, even though this decision made perfect sense at the time, it immediately cost me seven points.

Antonio scored an incredible goal with his only shot against Manchester City while Calvert-Lewin looked like a shadow of what we have seen in the first five matches of the season in Everton’s defeat Southampton. And, of course, a yellow card in the last minute was the cherry on top of a poor overall performance.

Injury and suspension dent Everton's FPL appeal and expose squad depth issues 1

I bought Calvert-Lewin in because he was a nice set-and-forget option until Gameweek 11 at the very least, thanks to a combination of great underlying statistics and a decent run of fixtures. 

Unfortunately, without Richarlison (£7.8m) in the side, Lucas Digne (£6.2m) suspended and James Rodríguez (£8.0m) perhaps still managing that injury which messed so many of us about last week, Calvert-Lewin’s appeal has already decreased a bit. However, I am sticking to the plan and hoping he still manages to deliver good value over the next five matches.

WHO IS THE BEST DIGNE REPLACEMENT?

As I was writing this, I caught confirmation that Digne’s three-match suspension has been reduced to one. It means he won’t play against Newcastle and will return in Gameweek 8, when Everton host Manchester United at Goodison Park.

Despite the reduction in his length of absence, I still don’t hold out much hope for Digne’s appeal over the next two Gameweeks. Unless something bad happens with my players in midweek matches, I think it is time to part ways with the French left-back.

Fixtures is the first thing i look into when I am comparing defensive options, focusing mainly on the next five or six matches and using longer term fixtures as a tie-break to separate two similar options. 

So, let’s see which teams have the easiest short term fixtures from a defensive perspective.

Teams with the best defensive schedule in the next five matches

From this list, I am going to exclude Crystal Palace (due to uncertainty about how they will shape up with players returning from injuries), West Bromwich (based on their poor showings in the early Gameweeks) and Southampton, since I already own Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) and Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.5m).

Here are the best options from each of the five remaining teams.

EVERTON – Michael Keane (£5.1m) – He has already scored twice this season and seems to be a decent value option if I am to keep trusting Everton’s defence. However, Keane is no Digne and his best fixtures are away from home, which I am not thrilled about. Having plenty of money in the bank, I am probably going with someone else.

CHELSEA – Ben Chilwell (£5.8m) – With great fixtures ahead, an impressive attacking threat and some set pieces in his arsenal, Chilwell seems to be the best Chelsea defender to have and, simultaneously, the logical replacement for Digne. I do worry he could be rotated with Marcos Alonso (£5.8m), Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m) or even Reece James (£5.0m) once in a while though, especially with a hectic winter schedule ahead. Nevertheless, his upside seems too good to ignore and I think he is a great candidate, even if he might be rested by Lampard here and there.

LEICESTER – Timothy Castagne (£5.8m) – The Belgian full-back has impressed so far with four attacking returns in just six matches but he does seem a bit too expensive for someone who will have to play against Leeds, Wolves and Liverpool next. I think Castagne will be a great option from Gameweek 10 but right now it is a bit too soon to rely on him.

ASTON VILLA – Ezri Konsa (£4.7m) – After watching Villa’s shocking performance against Leeds, and with plenty of money to spend, Konsa is not someone I’m all that interested in right now but I think he could still provide decent value in a rotation with a West Ham defender, for example. Something I would probably consider if i was Wildcarding this week.

MANCHESTER CITY – Ruben Dias (£5.5m) – He seems to have nailed a spot at the heart of City’s defence but they will play against Liverpool and Tottenham in two of the next three fixtures so, just like Castagne, it doesn’t seem to be the right time to get Dias in.

OTHER PLANS

Werner fails to convince owners as Chilwell impresses for Chelsea

Despite poor performances in the last two Gameweeks, I still think my team looks pretty good and except for Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.8m), and possibly Timo Werner (£9.3m) if it seems he will lose his starting place, I don’t have plans to sell anyone else for now. 

I still have my Wildcard available, which is great but, unless an injury crisis comes up, I don’t think I will need to use it in the next few Gameweeks.

Not having Harry Kane (£10.9m) has been a bit stressful but it is hard to justify using a transfer to sell Werner with such a great schedule ahead of him. I don’t mind having the German international (plus £1.5m and one spare free transfer) over Kane, even if he still doesn’t look like the goal-scoring machine we saw in the Bundesliga.

Thanks for reading and good luck with your transfers for Gameweek 7.

      It's good. I think I'd play Dallas over PVA

        Leicester will not score?

          They've taken a very defensive approach lately, possibly due to all their injuries in defence. Against an attacking team like Leeds, I think Rodgers might do the same. Palace often manage to concede one late goal and away to Wolves isn't great.

          1. Chelsea91
            • 2 Years

            Thanks for the suggestion , will think on the PVA vs Dallas.

      Maupay to Brewster and J Rod to Rashford work?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Was thinking about that

    3. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      That messes up your structure though. You’d have to play one of Bissouma/Brewster every week or play 4 of your defenders. I reckon going 4-4-2 would be better than the first option, but you could do with one better defender if that’s the case.

  4. Joggers Nipple

        1. amol
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          No Kane would be the only minor concern but I wouldnt get rid of Ings

    2. DanteDrama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      In the same boat, can do C but dallas has better fixture this gw than coufal . If nothing else can do 4.0 def to 3.9 to squeeze 0.1 for future upgrades. Won't sell Ings, he is giving returns almost every week

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Cheers, Dallas wont play for me this week so might do it

    3. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      James to Zaha? You have DCL to cover Everton.

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years

        Have been thinking this, thanks

    5. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Yeah, as suggested by others, do either B or C.

    6. Africa United
      • 8 Years

      E (,Kane) for the Brighton/WestBrom games but on your own risk ..

    7. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I’d be tempted to lose Saiss, as you’ll probably want to transfer him out soon with the fixture swing

  5. steven8991

    Have 2FT but don't know who should I change, only option is to change Podence for one week punt only.

    Who's the best option as a 4th choice midfielder up to 7.7?

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Grealish/ Zaha?

      1. amol
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Not convinced on bringing Zaha in right now, especially vs Wolves. Grealish could be great though

    2. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Grealish

      1. amol
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Yeah I'll probably get him in for Trossard

    3. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I have Zaha and Grealish

      1. amol
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Who would you prefer if you only had the option of one

        1. Chelsea91
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Grealish this week

    4. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Zaha seems to be achieving some level of consistency though - 4 returns out of 6 so far. They’ve both got decent fixtures. I’d get Zaha.

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Isn’t Zaha potentially off pens now?

              Honest no idea but with 2fts might as well. If unsure do Coufal now, ready for next week, never really use that last sub spot

      • 2 Years

      Semedo/Saiss

      1. Apwilkin
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Semedo more likely to start than Saïss?

        1. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          I wouldn’t look into it too much with Saiss. Playing well, clean sheets when he plays, he should be fine to start.

        2. Chelsea91
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Semedo no rotation risk as i know

    2. Mile Plankton
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Saiss might be a rotation risk.
      Semedo is more nailed on in Wolves defence.
      I'd consider Villa defenders as well.

    3. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Dias.

      I wanted Cancelo, but started to doubt that move after seeing Zinchenko play in the week. Don’t want another James situation with a decent 5+ defender being a constant selection doubt in my team. I’d wait a week or two before bringing in a Wolves defender, as their line up is in doubt too.

      B) Rodriguez + Trossard > Rashford + Klich/Jorginho
      C) Trossard + Brewster > Soucek + Bamford (Chillwell this time the following week)

      I kinda like B at the moment, it’s attacking! 🙂

      Any input appreciated fellas cheers.

      Kinda hope Hamez is ruled out. Punting on a Chelsea/United mid could be quite fun.

        Same, as above. Really liking the prospect of beinging in Rashford

          that's what i have currently, with Son vc, although have a feeling either Son or Salah will get the haul this week rather than Kane, but Brighton game in theory should be the more open one, who knows, crazy season so far 🙂

      2. Third Eye Vision

        Yeah, toss up between Kane and Son for me. I’m currently on Kane.

        If you think Bambo is the baby Kane, yes!

        If you think Bambo had his Watkins hattrick game, no!

        Remember that even Callum Wilson, Pukki, Ayoze Perez, Josh King, Firmino, Laccazette, and Ollie Watkins have had hattricks in recent years.

        Maybe Maupay is due for a crazy hattrick

              Yes good shout how about the theory that Son gets more points than Kane away and Kane gets more at home..

      2. Third Eye Vision
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Fulham have got the better fixture and Lookman has looked like their most likely source of points (after Mitrovic) lately. Reckon you’d be better off with something like Zaha + 4.5 rather than Barkley + Lookman though. Something to consider next week.

        1. Africa United
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Exactly the move I'm making next week and their game is tomorrow so can do it before price changes if Zaha go mental .. or just do Barkley to Bowen with FT according to Zaha performance as next 2 are not easy as it seems to be

      3. SAY MY NAME
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        barkley - any of son/salah/kane could do well this week, i have the exact same choices, currently on kane as a conservative pick, but actually think Son might be the one to haul, which means Salah will probably get a hat-trick, in other words it's a lottery 🙂

      So confused right now....

      Martinez
      Robbo / Saiss / James
      Mo / Raz / Son / Grealish / Podence
      Jimenez / DCL

      Steer/Mitchell/Lamptey/Brewster
      0.8M ITB and 2FT

      A) Podence to Lookman and save 1FT for next week (OR James to Chilwell but I suspect he may be rested this week)
      B) Robertson + Jimenez -> Kane + Cancelo
      C) Robertson + Jimenez + James -> Kane + Chilwell + Dallas/Coufal (-4)
      D) Any other suggestions

      Appreciate your help folks!

      1. Tsparkes10

        A sounds good

        1. S3
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Podence to Lookman or James to Chilwell?

          1. Africa United
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            James to chilwell looking fine too and roll transfer

      2. Africa United
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Brewster to Bamford

        1. S3
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          not enough money to make in 1 FT

          1. Africa United
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            Other free downgrade Robbo or Podence or James
            But it could backfire though as Robbo playing at home and Podence as well

          1. Africa United
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            How about a Martinez to Mendy
            Or Dunne to Kilman?

            1. SAY MY NAME
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 1 day ago

              i'm happy with Martinez, good fixtures, plus i don't trust Chelsea defence under Lampard, except maybe Chillwell for attacking returns

              Dunne to Kilman is definitely an option, but not being certain of either kilman or saiss starting means i think i'd rather hold, see what happens and have 2 ft next week

      2. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years

        I'd switch captaincy... Rest looks good... I'd save

        Save. I am not convinced by Lookman at all and I think Fulham are rubbish.

      2. SAY MY NAME
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Lookman looks good, but not proven as an fpl asset, plus Fulham are rubbish and would find it hard to score in a house of sin, maybe consider james to zaha or one of the chelsea mids

    • waldofeen
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Have 1 FT at the moment. Considering trying to get these moves done in the next two gameweeks.
      DCL to Werner
      Hamez to Foden
      Podence to A.S.M
      Regulion to Konsa.

      Team is;
      McCarthy(Nyland)
      Chilwell Regulion Justin(Lamptey, Mitchell)
      Zaha, Son (C), Salah, Hamez(Podence)
      DCL, Kane, Jimenez.

      Think I will save the free transfer this week and see how things go. Happy enough with my 11 but think it may soon be time to move on the Everton boys.

      Welp .... Looks like Gareth Bale and Delle Alli will be developing an awesome partnership AND understanding while sitting on Jose Mourinhno's bench

      Delle will set the Assist record of most Cups of Tea fetched in a EPL season!

      Spurs 0 - 1 vs Antwerp

      Bale pulled at Halftime!

      Play Maupay or Bamford, leaning towards bamford.

        You are right

      C) Save

      1. Dirty Harry
        • 5 Years

        B to Bamford.
        Or Save if you want to wait on Antonio news.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    • Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Have we any more info on whether James Rodríguez plays or not?
      I now have Castagne out too so need to make some moves even though I intended holding FT.
      I mean how bad a kicks in the balls does it have to be that he is still a doubt 2 weeks later and plus he played last week.

      1. Africa United
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        I think problem is Everton playing away and lacking Digne/Coleman,/richa make jRod do more effort and running around and limit attacking potential plus he doesn't play 90

        1. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Good point. It’s a huge list of injuries to key players but FUL is only 2 GWs away. That why I am considering holding.

          1. Africa United
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            Yes if I had him would definitely start him against Newcastle and then maybe bench against United
