    Best move here?

    Ideally want to roll a transfer and have 2FT over international break.

    2FT 0.7itb

    Martinez • Steer
    Lamptey • James • Robbo • Coufal • Saiss
    Son • Salah • Podence • Foden • Bissouma
    Werner • Kane • DCL.

    1. Derek the Dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Saiss to someone? Zouma, Dallas, Ayling or Kilman maybe

    2. jimbo90
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I'd save and get Saiss out next gameweek. Lamptey Robbo Coufal is a decent defence this week

  3. Nespinha
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Mccarthy
    Robbo, Bellerin, KWP
    Salah, Bruno, Son, Podence, Pereira
    DCL, Werner

    4.0, Mitchell, Davis, Ferguson - 1FT 1.2ITB

    Robbo to Chillwell?

    1. George James
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I would save personally mate. Looks good.

    2. Derek the Dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I'd save, nice to have 2FT after the IB in case of unexpected injury, covid, etc

      1. Nespinha
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Makes sense, thanks mate

  4. Openboxman

    Reece james doenst start this weekend does he..

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      No

    2. George James
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Do to think so. However could also start and get double digits.

    3. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Think he will start. International suspension I think, so plenty time to rest

      1. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        What ? He isn't first choice

        1. My heart goes Salalalalah
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Got it

  5. Baines on Toast...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Think Gabriel might be better than Bellerin. Bellerin's chance creation is pretty poor; Gabriel's goal threat is much higher and BPS looks better. Bellerin winning a stupid penalty appears to have skewed things.

    1. FPLHaggis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I think ultimately both will score similarly over the season.

    2. 'Broadsword Calling Da…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Yeah, good point you make. Gabs overall stats look better than Bellerin. However the Gunner's next 6 games have 4 home fixtures and Bellerin has the better numbers for home games..I've gone for Bellerin btw (so Gabriel, probably better lol).

  6. FPLHaggis
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    In your ideal setup, do you think Grealish should be a third or fourth mid?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 14 days ago

      3rd mid, if he keeps hauling he’s essential at that price

    2. Joey Tribbiani
        2 months, 14 days ago

        5th mid, and that will happen next gw

      • KUNingas
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Price wise it is my fifth mid

      • Derek the Dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        depends on your setup. 4th if playing 3-5-2. Possibly 3rd in a 3-4-3 unless you're cheap in defence

      • Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        My ideal setup is Salah KDB Bruno Son Grealish

        So, yup. Fifth mid

    3. huhhh
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Sell saiss for chilwell good choice?

      1. FPLHaggis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Yes looks good on paper !

        1. huhhh
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          NT sure if cresswell is taking corner still or freekick?

      2. Derek the Dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        yes

    4. KUNingas
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      A) Pulisic + Jrod (1FT)
      B) Ziyech + Jrod (0FT)
      C) Fernandes + Soucek (-4)
      D) Rashford + Jota/Bowen (-4)

      1. RealSocialDads
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        B

      2. Derek the Dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        B

      3. KUNingas
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Thanks!

    5. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Who needs to leave my team first?

      Saiss or Mitchell?

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Saiss

      2. KUNingas
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Saiss based on value

    6. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Can Bamford keep up with or outscore Werner over the next few weeks?

      Leeds create loads of chances for Bamford and play attacking football. Fixtures don't seem to matter to them as they play attacking football in each game.

      Werner has penalties in his locker now but there's a chance he's rested this weekend. Also goals are more shared out at Chelsea compared to Leeds.

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I predict he will not be even close to werner

      2. Derek the Dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        i'd prefer Werner but it depends on what you would do with the extra funds that Bamford would free up

        1. King Kohli
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Would help me in doing Son > KDB in a gw or two to double with Sterling for City's good run.

    7. unitednations

      Hi folks,

      looking for a havertz replacement frustratingly. he was by big differential this gw and wanted to carry FT over intl break. Anyhow, best replacement

      A: Ziyech but rotation risks?
      B: Zaha....great fixtures, talisman
      C: Grealish, but already have Watkins and dbl villa attack vs arsenal away?
      D: Someone else?

      1. KUNingas
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I think all of them are great options. Maybe B as if Palace score, Zaha will be involved

      2. JfA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Bowen or Fornal or even Soueck, he's got to be due a return soon.

    8. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      A) Chilwell, Mitro
      B) Zouma, Wilson -4

      1. JfA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Stay clear of Mitro in my opinion. Can't hit a barn door.

    9. Van der Faart
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Looking at some stats on TAA improving lately in an attacking sense is anyone holding? Would have to come up with another solution to fund Sterling/KDB if I hold

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Have decided to keep

      2. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I'm the same. Although his attacking threat has mainly been shown in the Champions League - not great opponents. Tough game this week so it's tempting to drop

      3. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 14 days ago

        dropped him for Chill

    10. Ginola
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I'm really struggling with this decison, who should I play this weekend?

      A. Robertson (mci)
      B. Watkins (ars)

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        A for me have the same players, think arsenal look solid at the back

      2. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        B

      3. KUNingas
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        A as I think Robbo is a player you have to play every week.

    11. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Think I will loose both kane and son next gameweek for Bruno and Werner. Wont captain neither son or kane for the next 5-6 gameweeks and my goal is to close in on top 10k as I'm sitting on 64k now. Good idea or silly ?

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Not silly to remove them but I'd like to see a lot more from United before getting Bruno

        1. drughi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Perfect fixture to get going

    12. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      How does this 4-4-2 draft look. Can get this by gw10 with fts alone, thoughts?

      Martinez
      Robbo Chilwell dias/cancelo lamptey
      Salah raz kdb grealish
      Wilson dcl

      4.0 Brewster Mitchell bissouma

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Looks like it has high potential

    13. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Depending on Lampard's press conference, Pulisic out for:

      A) Ziyech - most obvious
      B) Jota - most potential upside
      C) Zaha - four nice fixtures
      D) Bowen/Fornals

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        A

      2. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        B then A

      3. KUNingas
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        If Jota would be certain starter I would choose B. But for now A.

    14. Netters2018
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Start Justin or Coady??

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Im starting Justin

    15. tbhogal
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Which option is best here guys?

      A) Foden > Bowen
      B) Saiss > Coufal
      C) Save FT

      Martinez (Steer)
      Chilwell, Robbo, Lamptey (Saiss, Mitchell)
      Podence, Salah, Son, Grealish (Foden)
      Bamford, DCL, Kane.

      1. Totti
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        A

        1. Totti
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          and bench podence

      2. llmja
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        A

      3. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Foden looks like a good cheap way into city when fixtures turn, he will get his starts and hauls here and there. Keep

        1. Totti
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          very difficult to retain his place, too many players rotated
          he's not nailed on

      4. NETFLIX & CHILWELL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        You don't need to shift Saiss this week. Chilwell / Robbo / Lamptey is a decent three for this week. Play Foden as your 5th midfielder.

    16. llmja
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      A. Grealish/Zaha
      B.Zaha/Ziyech
      C.Ziyech/Grealish

      For WC

      0.9ITB

      Thank you

      1. Totti
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        C

    17. Totti
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      who to get for the coming three fixtures?

      A) zaha
      B) bowen
      C) fornals

    18. SHOWSTOPPERRR
      • 3 Years

      Repost

      Got less replies..

      Guys for the coming gw's my plan is to

      A) robbo son havertz to bellerin ziyech kdb
      B) robbo havertz kane to cancelo kdb werner

      If A is the option then I can make havertz to ziyech now and the rest after ib. If B is the option then. I can save and wait for ib and then do the transfers..

      Which one to choose guys?

      1. Totti
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        yes A

      2. maratus
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I don´t understad what you are asking, but Havertz has corona, so he wont be playing for while.

        1. maratus
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Oh, now i got it. Sorry for reply fail.

          1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            And your suggest on this?

    19. mr messi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Best Ings replacement? 1.1m in the bank. Already have Kane and DCL. Is Werner a good shout if he’s now on pens?

      1. LOLarov
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Wilson for sure

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Am going Werner myself

      3. Totti
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        if the money not a problem
        then werner

      4. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Werner definitely a strong option. I'm going Martial but think I'd go Timo if I had the extra cash.

      5. jimbo90
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Werner

    20. LOLarov
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Thoughts on which is better? I have 2 FT

      A) TAA + Podence + Jimmy --> Vestergaard + Ziyech + Werner (-4)
      B) TAA + Foden + Jimmy --> Creswell + Ziyech + Werner (-4)
      C) Saiss + Jimmy --> Lamptey + Werner (no hit)

    21. tissae
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Would you guys still do Pulisic -> Ziyech, even though Puli has a chance to feature this weekend?

      1. huhhh
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Nope, we need pulisic to stun ppl!

      2. Cahill
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Same conundrum for me! Much prefer Puli and not overly keen on Ziyech! Reason I’m leaning towards is it it frees up cash for Saiss-> PVA who I want to punt on

        Is Puli more or less likely to play with a 2 week int break in the offing?

        1. huhhh
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I really think puli starting, since havertz also out. May nt play full but as long as he start!

      3. Cahill
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Any quotes from Lampard after last nights game or today about him?

        Does he have a press conference tomorrow?

    22. OptimusBlack
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      If u have Chilwell as a defender would u get Mendy ?
      Yaaaay Gauita > Mendy
      Nope keep Gauita save FT

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Save ft imo

        1. OptimusBlack
          • 7 Years

    23. Miguel Sanchez

      Will do Saiss and Ings to Coufal and Werner (-4) tomorrow assuming Rodriguez is passed fit. GTG then?

      Martinez
      Chilwell Coufal Kilman
      Salah Son Rodriguez Grealish
      Kane(c) Werner Jimenez
