Mitrović leads Fantasy interest as Fulham host unchanged West Brom

Aleksandar Mitrović (£5.8m) leads the Fantasy Premier League interest in Monday’s clash between Fulham and West Bromwich Albion.

The mid-priced forward currently sits in 8.4% although his backing has been in decline for some time now.

Mitrović is now without an attacking return since Gameweek 2, leaving behind only his most loyal followers for Gameweek 7.

The Fulham striker has registered 18 shots in the box over his last four matches, the joint-most of any player in the top flight over the same period.

Is he due a goal? Perhaps. But will West Bromwich Albion been as obliging as earlier in the campaign? That does seem unlikely.

Since Branislav Ivanovic‘s (£4.5m) debut in Gameweek 5, and the rolling out of a new back-four after Slaven Bilic ditch his five-man defence, the Baggies have conceded just one goal.

That has worked out at an average of 0.5 per match, compared to 3.2 per match between Gameweeks 1 and 4.

The former Chelsea man has also led West Bromwich Albion for shots in the box since his debut so there is sure to be a keen eye on his performance at Craven Cottage tonight.

Fantasy managers looking to captain either Harry Kane (£10.9m) or Son Heung-min (£9.6m) in Gameweek 8 should also keep tabs on the Baggies’ backline on Monday night as the two sides go head-to-head at the Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon.

Fulham XI: Areola; A Robinson, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina; Lemina, Anguissa; Lookman, Cairney, De Cordova-Reid; Mitrović

West Bromwich Albion XI: Johnstone; Townsend, Ajayi, Ivanovic, Furlong; Livermore, Gallagher; Diangana, M Pereira, Krovinovic; Grant.

      Great to see sense from VAR. You should be allowed to have arms, he did everything he coul to not let the ball hit his arm

    For a 1 week punt before WC;
    TAA > Coufal
    Podence > Ziyech
    Mitrovic > Lacazette
    For -4?

    Appreciate the Lacazette is rather punty, but could be fun!

      Nothing about Arsenal is fun. B

        Sorry I wasnt clear enough, I meant all of the above for a -4

      Arsenal one of the most boring, least attacking minded teams. Their defenders are value, no one else

        2 months, 24 days ago

        Lacazette is like Jiminez. Never scores more then 1 goal a game

        Sup, first post here. What do you guys think?

        Martinez
        Robbo Chilwell Kilman
        Salah Son Grealish Zaha
        Watkins Kane DCL

        (Martin KWP Mitchell Bissouma)
        1ft 1,2m itb

        Thoughts on this one lads? What would the smart moves here be? Kinda want the extra cash from robbo(->coufal) for upgrading either striker (watkins) or taking in a fifth starting mid (hamez? later on kdb).. Thanks for you thoughts lads.

            Great team. Think I would save the FT and have 2FT over the internationals

                  BBC live text must think he has:

                  “ I really hope Garth hasn't done his team of the week yet. Ademola Lookman and Aleksandar Mitrovic have got to have a chance of making the great man's XI.”

                    You'd make the team of the week if you played vs WBA.

                Dunno but I’m aggrieved. Mitro, Wilson, Werner paid off for the first time in six weeks otherwise!

              Which of these teams would you prefer (Fwd's and Midfs only)
              1. DCL - Kane - Werner
              Grealish - Bissouma - Salah - Son - Ziyech

              2. DCL - Kane - Bamford
              Grealish - Ziyech - Salah - Son - Rodriguez

                Kane with captaincy will be at least 150% owned by the top 10k this GW. If he hauls against this useless team and you don't own him you may aswell delete your team and come back next year.

                  Feel for those who don’t have him

                  Of course I don’t have Son, this could be a disaster

                  That's nonsense and I'm a Kane owner

                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  Agree. An easy 17+ points haul from Kane.

                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  Thats if he hauls, barely set the world on fire at home against Brighton where many of his owners was already counting chickens...

                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  more like 180%

                  After the Son blank and Salah faces City most will back Kane. I think he'll be around 170-180% owned.

                  If he gets over 30 points, I will delete my team.

                  Kane haul = game being updated, come back later 🙂

                Really in need of some help, I’m struggling at the moment and none of the players have very favourable fixtures. Can anyone think of some instant changes I need to make with this team.

                Martinez 4.0
                Dallas TAA Coufal Justin Mitchell
                Son Grealish Zaha Mane Bissouma
                Ings Maupay Kane

                Any help or ideas would be appreciated!

                    Taa, bissouma, ings, maupay > Targett, KDB, Watkins, Brewster

                    TAA Ings Maupay > Chilwell Werner Wilson

                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      I just know that as soon as I take TAA out he will have a big haul. I do agree though can’t keep him in any longer.

                      1. Magic Zico
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 2 Years
                        2 months, 24 days ago

                        Always chance, but we will not move anywhere without taking calculated risks. I took him out 3 GWs ago for Chilwell, lucky enough it worked out but it could go the other way as well. It's a game!

                    • 2 Years

                    nope I will move him out even though I don't have an FT.

                  Perreira clearly waiting for me to sell him before he hauls again.

                  Weird. All 5 of my players who got returns had 8 points.

                    That’s a cool 40 points.

                  Reguilon, Foden, Jimenez > Coufal, KDB, Watkins. What do you think?

                  Probably Coufal this week and other two next (to get all for free).

                    Double pool defence?! I’m about to sell for a hit

                      I had Arsenal defender + slightly stronger forward than Watkins but given Liverpool's good fixtures after City I'm struggling not seeing this combo outscore but yeah it looks shaky given how they've started, but new fixtures, new points. I'll think about it for sure though.

                      Thanks for the point but I prefer to think long term, don't see which players I'd want to drop for that, plus I have son. Served me well.

                      Seriously thinking about it. Need to get rid of TAA so that will free up cash. Mahrez needs to go too.

                        I'm only happy with a half dozen players so think I'm pulling the trigger. Can't think of a better time. We only have to GW16 this year.

                    Also can someone explain how Wilson has scored more points than DCL, but hasn’t risen from 6.5m, yet DCL has rose 0.7m? I’ve got both, Wilson from start, DCL from week 2. Is it because the “fantasy elite” haven’t been bigging him up and people can’t make their own transfer decisions? Very odd

                    Nice to see Poch on the Sky team tonight.

                    Surprising some club has not swooped for him yet or is he just holding out for a vacancy at Man United i wonder?

                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      None of the big clubs want him and many of them had vacancies

                      Even Mourinoh was out of work for a bit. Poch has nothing on him.

                      The fact he's appearing tonight, after another poor United result, rather than all these other nights is to stir the pot. (Both from his team, and the broadcasters.)

                        • 4 Years

                        had UTD won, the pot may not have had anything to stir
