Comparing Kane, Son and potential replacements as I plan for Spurs’ fixture swing

Fantasy Premier League managers need to start making a plan for their Tottenham Hotspur assets as their incoming fixture-swing approaches.

Leading the way with their 71 points each, Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Son Heung-min (£9.6m) have been the catalysts for success during the first seven Gameweeks but that may not be true for much longer. 

Many of us will be relying on Jose Mourinho’s men yet again this weekend as they travel to face an out-of-form West Bromwich Albion side – but we cannot allow ourselves to get too attached.

From Gameweek 9 it will be a case of form versus fixtures as we see Spurs run into Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool in four of the five matches between Gameweeks 10 and 13.  Even though owning both Kane and Son has been almost essential in the early weeks of the season, I definitely think it is time we seriously examine the merits of keeping the pair beyond Gameweek 8.

  4. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Do we think Zouma gets rested this week?

    1. giroudsgirlfriend
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Seems quite nailed on for me, really, dont think Lampard is going to change his central defenders

    2. Bishopool
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Chillwell as well. Azpi getting nod..

    3. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years

      No

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      nope.

  5. 03farmboy
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Who’s best captain option this week?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Kane safest, Son highest ceiling, Werner for differential

  6. aapoman
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Masuaku or Coufal?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Masuaku both on xG and xA

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Coufal - Masuaku could miss out if they move to 4 at the back

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Hi mate. Big “if” when Moyes is talking about consistency.

  7. Bishopool
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Which CHELSEA asset do bring in?

    Who will bring the most?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Double defence.

    2. Bishopool
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Werner now on penalties?

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Jorginho actually handed Werner the ball so I’d say yes.

  8. giroudsgirlfriend
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Help appreciated guys,

    Martinez
    Lamptey-Dallas-Zouma
    Salah-Son-Grealish-PULISIC
    Wilson-Kane-DCL

    Bench: Soucek, ROBERTSON, Kilman
    1 FT, 0.0M

    A: Stick with Pulisic or not?
    B: Get rid of Robertson or actually let him sit on the bench for the City game? Considering Chilwell in (double up)

    1. Bishopool
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      If you already have Captain America, then stick with it

  9. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Bench 1:

    A) Dallas
    B) Lamptey
    C) Coufal
    D) James

    1) Foden (have Sterling)
    2) Podence

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      A2

    2. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      A2

  10. LC1
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Really struggling to work out who to bench out of the following;

    a) Lamptey
    b) JRod
    c) Podence
    d) Mitrovic (have Coufal starting for WHU).

    Any suggestions are much appreciated!

  11. Gazpilicueta
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Again this week I am short on time to read and prep, any thoughts appreciated.

    Martinez, Forster
    Robbo, James, Saiss, Justin, Lamptey
    Sterling, Salah,Son, Foden, Burke
    Jimenez, DCL, Bamford

    0.1 in the bank and 2 free transfers
    I am thinking about
    A) Saiss out, 5 mil on a non playing defender is not ok
    B) Sterling to KDB, Id like to do this at some point, maybe this week is a good spot?
    C) James not nailed, maybe bring in chilwell, or a defender with good fixtures??

    1. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      C

  12. RyanMK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Anyone investing in West Ham defenders that isn't Creswell?

    1. aapoman
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yes. I'm getting either Masuaku or Coufal later today

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah - went Coufal

    3. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Have a FT but so reluctant to use it on a West Ham player lol

    4. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Coufal passed the eye test. Masuaku has the stats of the two.

  13. Michelle Davin
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Sterling to Ziyech and DCL to Werner for -4??

    1. aapoman
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Never

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      No

    3. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Whoa. No

  14. greggles
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Best replacement for Ings? I can spend up to 10.9m. Vardy?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Werner

    2. aapoman
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Vardy yes

    3. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      It’s not going to be popular, but Jesus.

      Werner a good option too.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Jesus I am in GW10

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Looks a different beast this year.

    4. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Vardy

    5. greggles
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I like the Jesus option but I’ve gone Vardy as Mr Reliable. Thanks for your advice.

  15. NO SALAH
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    If Reguilon's injury is confirmed, who to replace? Already got Chilwell, any options up to 5.7 is appreciated.

    1. aapoman
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Creswell

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Zouma. The double up.

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Prefer James if you have a serviceable bench.

      2. NO SALAH
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        An option I thought of, thanks!

    3. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Cancelo if you can look past his next 2 fixtures.

      1. NO SALAH
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        He is on my radar like everyone else 🙂 From GW10 he probably is in.

    4. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Creswell

    5. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      He's ill, not injured, unless I'm missing something. I wouldn't waste transfers on defence right now, GW10 is a good time to bring in City/Leicester. I'm bringing in Castagne and Dias or Cancelo

      1. NO SALAH
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah he is ill. I have 2FT so I do not want to burn my transfer. I plan to make 1 transfer this GW.

  16. PogBruno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Any changes to the captancy and benching? Or G2G?

    Martinez
    James Coufal Justin
    Salah Sterling Son Rashford Soucek
    Kane (c) DCL

    - Kilman Brewster Ferguson

    1. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Gtg

  17. Bergkamps second touch
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    No Brighton presser today? Any news on Lamptey?

    1. Bergkamps second touch
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Apparently, he hurt his... gentleman's area? If Reddit is to be believed.

  18. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Would you get in Bamford for Ings?

    Leeds score more or less in every game and with Bamford being the talisman, I expect him to quietly tick along.

    The funds saved let's me go heavy in midfield with Salah Sterling KDB Hamez.

    1. Boz
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Adams also a good option

  19. ymx
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Best Ings replacement - 10.3 itb

    1. LC1
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Werner

    2. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Vardy

      1. ymx
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        It's either one of these two, for the next 3 GWs which would you choose?

  20. Espanyolie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 19 days ago

    McCarthy

    TAA, Justin, Saiss, Keane, Mitchell

    Son, Salah, Podence, Foden, McCarthy

    Kane , Jiménez , DCL

    2FT, 1,0 itb

    Wanted to fit in Ziyech for either Podence or Foden and get Zouma in for Saiss, but that will also involve downgrading Jimmy for a -4 and I can’t find any attacker of my likings with Antonio injured.

    Also have the exact funds for Foden + Saiss + Jimmy to Fornals + Zouma + Werner
    Is that a better option? Is Werner a safe bet after 90 mins in Champions League?

    1. Boz
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Just do Saiss to Zouma this week and reassess over IB

  21. dicky2014
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    I might buy this DCL bloke to replace Ings.

    Any good? 🙂

    1. Espanyolie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 19 days ago

      After seeing MUFC’s defense in CL, he could be gold this week

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Golden boot winner

  22. Werner Bremen
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Did Moyes confirm Cresswell is okay?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yes, he said he’s been training and he thinks he’ll be fine, those were his exact words

      However I do own him so always a chance he slips on a banana skin whilst making breakfast and dislocates his knee

  23. ymx
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Ings --> Werner / Vardy / Bamford ???

  24. Boz
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on this:

    Martinez
    Robbo Chilwell Lamptey (Dallas Mitchell)
    Salah Son Puli Grealish (Bissouma)
    (K)ane DCL Bamford

    1FT 0.5itb

    A) Puli to Zaha/Ziyech
    B) Robbo to Zouma
    C) Roll FT
    D) Anything else?

    1. giroudsgirlfriend
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 19 days ago

      In the same headache as you..

      For me holding on to Puli this week could be a good one, as the international break is coming and he'll 100 % be fit after that I reckon.

      Leaning more towards B atm (for me it will just be Robbo to Chilwell instead) but same double-up.
      Don't see Liverpool defense improving with the vital Van Dijk and Fabinho out

      Conclusion: B or possibly C (I'm having Robertson at the bench atm and playing Dallas instead)

      1. Boz
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I don’t have much faith in him after the IB though. Could have reduced minutes to protect him too.

        Robbo is expensive to be getting the odd assist with no CS. Think that might be the way to go

        1. giroudsgirlfriend
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 19 days ago

          So probably B for you then yes?

  25. Tony Martial
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Who to start?

    Saïss (Leicester, Won’t play?
    Targett ( double AVL defense)
    Mitchell ( Leeds, won’t play?)

  26. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Any changes?

    Martinez
    Coufal, Zouma, Chilwell,
    Grealish, Salah, Zaha, Son C
    DCL, Kane, Bamford

    Forster, Podence, Lamptey, Robbo

  27. manu4life99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Saiss replacement?

    Rest of defence is:
    Robbo Chilwell Lamptey Mitchell XXX

    A) Zouma
    B) Coufal

  28. balint84
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    pick 3 to start

    KWP (H), Zouma (H), Lamptey (H), Dallas (A), Coady (A)

  29. Tshelby
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Davies to Chilwell for free? Or get rid of Ramsdale, TAA, Trossard, Jiminez?

  30. Evasivo
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Best Cresswell replacement?

    On wildcard with Zouma Bellerin Kilman Mitchell

    1. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Why do you need to replace Cresswell? The quote from Moyes says he thinks he will be fine.
