      Be a champ and post it all on here for us casuals? 😉

        Just wait until next week's fpl wire episode, all will be revealed (for free) then.

        I'm going to guess:

        Martinez Forster
        Cancelo, Chilwell, Kilman, Lamptey, Ayling
        Salah, Fernandes (1 week punt before KDB), Ziyech, Grealish, Stephens
        Werner, DCL, Watkins

          think grealish + watkins is just silly overuse. but flavor of the week I guess

      Thanks for sharing some great stats from the members area. Its great to see what you can actually look for in there
      Great team, definitely squeezing the last 0.1 out there!

        cheers glad you enjoyed it

      Similar to my 352 wc draft if going that route

      What do you think about Vardy (liv FUL shu BHA) instead of Ziyech/Bruno in a 343 team?

      1. zøphar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Vardy vs Bruno comes down to personal preference really, Vardy hasn't offered enough in open play for my liking

        1. abhirup780
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          That's interesting. I thought Bruno would offer less in open play than Vardy.

    4. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      If you had to rank the players you want most of the following, what would your preference be?

      KdB, Salah, Bruno, Vardy

      1. Bojam
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        My 2pworth: 1. Salah (season keeper), 2/3. KDB (fixtures, no form yet) or Vardy (form and reasonable fixtures), 4. Fernandes (form but can't trust Utd week to week).

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          Thanks!

      2. zøphar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Salah, KDB, Bruno, Vardy in that order

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          Hey, thanks!

      3. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Salah Vardy Bruno KDB (there are options for Bruno and KDB i.e. Rashford and Jesus which people may disagree and labelling as coverage)

    5. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      What's your rank?
      Did you pay for your FFS subscription?

      Great reading, thanks. I had just posted on the previous article about my dilemma regarding my midfield slots. I'm on WC now too and I think a strong midfield 5 is the way forward. Do you have any thoughts on Jota? I think at the moment I'm leaning towards Salah, Grealish, KdB, Fernandes and Son/Ziyech. That could be tough to afford though without weakening the rest of my team. I'm unsure about Son's spot in my team still, as part of me says it's madness to sell the top scoring midfielder in the game.

      What I end up with on WC is likely going to be very similar to yours.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        when Fabinho and Thiago are fit, I think it becomes tricky for Jota. Too punty for me

      Interesting, thanks.

      FYI, you’ve put in there that Bruno is 11.5 rather than 10.5.

      Nice one Zoph!

      No mention of Jamie Vardy?

    9. dunas_dog

      Really helpful analysis- Vardy the one I would worry about not owning with 3 great fixtures coming up from week 10 but you can’t have them all!

    10. tuvok

      Thanks Zophar. I played my WC last night for the same reasons you state, and read this knowing your team wouldn’t likely be v similar. And it’s exactly the same! I’m thinking that power 5 in midfield ahead of this run could be season defining

    11. Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Great article, thank you for sharing, am very much aligned with my own wildcard. Does it leave anything ITB as might need a better bench with more rotation likely come Xmas ?

    12. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Brilliant work and great timing as I’m doing my WC this week and thanks for the making it members only. I do like a members only article..

    13. Dino

      Nice first draft @zophar but I think cancelo, bernardo and brewster are traps given the season we are in. Covid could hit any game and any player on any given weekend and as such I don't think non starting/ not nailed/ young cheap players in struggling team with no form should be brought in on a wc. Might mean sacrificing a little bit in midfield but maybe zyech to soucek could free up money to help sort out the other three spots?

      1. The Mighty One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        This is smart. I’m trying to keep this in mind every week when I keep leaving good scores on the bench.

    14. OneDennisBergkamp

      Great article, matches with my thinking too so I enjoyed it even more lol

    Newcastle's Wilson not as injured as first feared, with the striker being "an outside chance of the striker being available for Chelsea at home in 11 days times"

    What’s your TV and rank?

    1. zøphar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Around 900k, team value is a bit rubbish since I've been doing transfers only on Fridays

      1. Doctor Evil
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Fair play, interested to see others as my rank is ok at 390k but TV not great at 103.4. Missed a couple of bandwagons early on

        1. Bojam
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          TV of 103.4 is same as mine. Reckon that's good at this stage. Play it right and you're probably looking at 105+ by xmas. Key is getting (and keeping) the right players - as in the ones scoring points - and not focusing on TV. Everything else will follow from that.

        2. SuperG

        3 months, 21 days ago

        I’ve tried boosting my TV by carding early Friday and getting in double risers. Plus getting rid of those dripping like Mitchell n Trent..it’s Looking like it’ll work out at the moment, but we will see. It’s just a bit annoying not having the team I want yet

        1. Bookkeeper
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          if you've owned, Son, Kane, Lamptey and DCL and Bamford for large periods, then i'd expect TV to be 102m+

          1. Doctor Evil
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 21 days ago

            Missed Lampty and Bamford

  4. Slitherene

    On a WC, will have to play 2 regularly.

    A) Fernandes - Watkins - Berge
    B) Rashford - Grealish - Brewster

    Which one would you go for?

    1. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      easy B imo

      1. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Ty

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          But why was it such an easy decision?

          1. jomikijiq
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 21 days ago

            The difference between Grealish and Watkins is bigger than between Bruno and Rahford imo.

            1. Slitherene
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 21 days ago

              And what about the odd gameweek Berge/Brewster will have to play?

              Berge could have an upper hand since he's on PK's

  5. Tinfoil Deathstar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 21 days ago

    Great team Zoph. Similar to what I'm moving towards myself with a budget forward line of DCL, Bamford, and Watkins, and going with the big hitters in midfield (Bruno, Salah, KDB, and one of Grealish/Ziyech) by GW11, who I'll rotate captaincy between. Only reservation here would be Brewster as he has done absolutely nothing of note so far, but if you are going to stick with 3-5-2 formation then it scarcely matters (I'll be 3-4-3 myself). Good luck.

    1. zøphar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      yeah there's a good argument for that with the value bamford is offering but I couldn't not have either ziyech or grealish so decided 3-5-2 was the way to go.

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Same here. Think I'd prefer soucek and Watkins over ziyech and brewster......I think!

    • 4 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    Swiss >> Taylor/Lamptey/Other here? 5.1m to spend!

    Or play Mitchell/Justin and save the FT for 2 for GW10. Still got WC also.

    McCarthy
    Chilwell, Saiss, Cresswell
    Salah, Son, Ziyech, Rodríguez, Grealish
    Kane, DCL
    (Nyland, Mitchell, Justin, Davis)

    1. Buck The Trent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        For this week I think yeah. Then jump on City for GW10 is my rough plan. Or WC

    3. jomikijiq

      I would save and get Cancelo in GW10

    4. George James

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          I’d get Cancelo in now. You have no wiggle room with both Saiss and Mitchell.

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            Would need a hit to get Cancelo?

    How nailed is Jamal Lewis for the season?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA

      Very

          Was worried about Ritchie taking his spot

            • 4 Years

            Too slow and old. Might play the odd game but even then more likely in Midfield

            1. Slitherene
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 21 days ago

              In place of?

                • 4 Years

                Would just be resting or injuries I think

      2. Chrisitis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Last time someone came up with this question, the answer was: Ritchie is first choice.

        I am a Lewis owner as well. When do we expect Ritchie back?

          Ritchie isn’t first choice. Lewis is

    Thinking of going with Hamez & Martial for now and switching to Fernandez & sub 6.2M striker in 3-4 weeks as I really want hamez for now.

    Or should I just bring in fernandez and Watkins in now?

    1. Bojam
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      It isn't clear if you already have Hamez and Martial and are keeping them or if you are planning to transfer them in?

      I'd say that if you have Hamez he's a keep for now. Bringing him in could also be a good shout but there might be better options depending on your team.

      Not at all sure about Martial - he's done nothing in the PL yet this season. Utd's form isn't reliable and West Brom are the kind of team they can struggle to break down.

      Watkins is a great option given form and fixtures. Fernandes has form too but it's Utd...

        Thanks for the input. I dont have hamez and martial atm. I would b doing costa + jimmy out to one of the above options. I just have a strong feeling about hamez.
        With united I feel when its an easier team, martial & rash are good shouts.

        Hmm something I gotta think about.

    Would anyone wildcard this? 0ft and 0itb

    Mendy/Button
    TAA/KWP/Taylor/Kilman/Mitchell
    Salah/Son/Grealish/Zaha/Burke
    Kane/Werner/Watkins

    Need to ship a few really

    1. Slitherene
      • 2 Years

      WC needed

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      I think that team looks good

  13. Aleksei
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    That's a great WC team. But Spurs will score in those games. They scored 6 away at Old Trafford. Liverpool conceded 7 from Villa, City 5 from Leicester, Chelsea 3 in a couple of games. Isn't it obvious form is over fixtures, specially this year, there is no away games technically.

    1. zøphar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Thanks, of course I'm not saying Spurs won't score, but Mourinho is likely to adopt a more cautious approach so the cash can be better to used to get captain options from other teams , thats the point im making

  14. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Really nice. If I wildcard, I think that's what I would go for.

    However, with an 8 pt hit I can get
    Mccarthy button
    Chilwell James ayling Taylor mitchell
    Mané kdb Bruno grealish soucek
    DCL Watkins bamford

    Even enough itb to go James to cancelo.

    WC or - 8?

    1. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      I wouldn’t WC if I could achieve the same outcome for -8 - if that’s what you’re suggesting

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Yeah, that's right. Not exactly the same but not far off.
        Cheers

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Looks nice. Does the -8 get you your captain you need?

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Yes, kdb. But I could just do
        Son and James to
        Kdb and coufal/targett

  15. Inazuma X1

    Thoughts on Chilwell (C) ?

    1. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Oh no way!

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Why not

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          One goal conceded killer his prospects. Who are your other prospects?

        2. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          Rarely have Newcastle not scored against Chelsea in the recent past.

          1. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 21 days ago

            If Wilson is out, surely they won't score.. who will even score for them

            1. Slitherene
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 21 days ago

              Chelsea always tends to concede somehow vs them.

              Your call!

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Go for it - three very viable routes to points

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Goals, CS and the third one is assist potential?

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          Bonus

    3. George James
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      We always concede at st James. Good luck though mate

  16. Olson

    I know it's not an argument for why it can't work now, but anecdotally I cannot remember a single time in about a decade when I have moved all my money into midfield and not ended up having to repair my team very soon after

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      I'm unsure as well. I think I'm going to do it, but have my wc to fix if it goes wrong

  17. Slitherene
    • 2 Years

    RMWCT?

    Martinez
    PvA Lamptey Justin Taylor Lewis
    Salah KdB Bruno Berge Soucek

    1.2 ITB for Vardy in GW 10

    1. George James
      • 6 Years

      A WC without Grealish? Start again

  18. jomikijiq
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    on WC

    A) Jota + Werner
    B) Rashford + Watkins

    1. FPLJim
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 21 days ago

      B for me until Jota is nailed

    2. Detweiler
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      B

  19. FPLJim
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 21 days ago

    I'm thinking of WC in GW9 as well but struggling with final two slots - £17m ITB - thinking Zaha and Werner?

    GK : McCarthy
    DEF : Chilwell
    DEF : Cancelo
    DEF : Target
    DEF : Kilman (Bench 1/2)
    DEF : Bernando (Bench 3)
    MID : Salah
    MID : Ziyech
    MID : Fernandes
    MID : Grealish
    MID : ?
    FWD : DCL
    FWD : ?
    FWD : Brewster (Bench 1/2)

    1. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      I have similar team with Jota and Werner in these slots currently. And KDB for Bruno.

    2. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Yes, coz you've set up your team that way.

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      KDB & Watkins

    4. Buck The Trent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      KDB + Watkins

    5. abhirup780
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Vardy + Antonio

      1. abhirup780
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        oops sorry u decided to play 3-5-2. Then KDB + Bamford.

    6. FPLJim
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 21 days ago

      KDB + Watkins = £17.6m with only £17m ITB

    7. FPLJim
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Would have to do Rashford for Bruno, which frees up enough for KDB and Watkins

  20. Cpthavoc

    Anyone knoe if there's a scoutcast tonight?

    Thanks in advance

  21. Could Have Ben Mee
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    What's the best move?

    a) Kane/ Jimenez to Vardy/ Jesus

    b) Son/ Jimenez to KDB/ Antonio or Wilson

    Really want KDB but I'm kinda leaning towards A

  22. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…

        Brilliant. Never heard this before. Makes a lot of sense as a farmer.

    2. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Seems that way. Probably bite a few behinds

    3. OneMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      I’ve let Son go but prob only fir 3 or four games. Never owned Kane. Plan to buy after Pool game.

  23. NATSTER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    I understand that Rashford should be fine as he has not withdrawn from international camp.

    Just in case the price force my hand. Would it be too much to double Bruno & Rashford in the coming games : WBA / sou / whu ?

    (A) Son > Bruno and double United
    (B) Rashford > Bruno and keep Spurs duo

    Salah - Son - Rashford - Grealish - Zaha
    Kane - DCL (Brewster)

  25. Inazuma X1

    Chelsea attacking stats are so good. I'd triple up on them if I was on WC.

    Werner + Ziyech + Chilwell

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Fixture run is not very easy ?

    2. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Only Ziyech probably worth a place.

  26. William.gallant
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    Thoughts on which is best? I’m hesitant to move all money in to midfield with no WC left

    1) Kane + Soucek
    2) son + Watkins

    1. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      If you have to play both every week then 2. Especially since you won't captain Spurs until GW16, so Kane being better than Son doesn't matter as much.

  27. Gunner1290
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    What would you do with this team: 1 free transfer and nothing in the bank.

    McCarty (button)
    Trent Bellerin Chilwell (Justin Mitchell)
    Bruno(c) Salah Son Soucek ASM
    Kane Calvert (Davis)

    I’m 300k in the world atm but not sure if I need to wildcard that team

    1. Detweiler
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Trent out, possibly to Cancelo to fund ASM to Grealish.

    2. OneMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Yes. Trent out to fund move for Grealish. Not a bad team at all otherwise.

  28. Detweiler
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 21 days ago

    What is a better duo?

    A) Cancelo & Brewster
    B) Coufal & Bamford

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Brewster to start every week?

      1. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Not if he keeps getting bullied off the ball.

      2. Detweiler
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Cheap rotation with Soucek in a 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 - I guess there are a few other moving parts to this.

    2. OneMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      B. For the Bam.

      1. Detweiler

    Martinez
    Chilwell - T.Silva - Cresswell

    Steer, Lamptey, Brewster, Mitchell

    1. Slitherene

      Bench Bowen & probably start Lamptey. Na, leave it.

    I know two guys who achieved top 10k finishes last season. They don't watch or read any FPL content. They dont do FPL statistics to choose players. It gets better, neither of them actually watch football. They follow the BBC football scores at the weekend and that's it.
    They just pick players based on who they think is doing well and take hits to get in the players they want straight away. If a decent player scores a brace they will transfer them in immediately regardless if its for a hit. Sorry if this depresses you in any way 🙂

    1. OneMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Interesting. I’m not saying I’m great, but sometimes intuition can be a good guide even in FPL.

    2. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      That's one half, getting the captain choices right week in week out the other. How do they manage that?

      1. The Mandalorian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        For captain they pick either the best player or most inform player who has the easiest fixture.

    3. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      I find a player who is on the verge of being sold by most, is right for the picking. Frightening how many times a player performs when all looks lost.

    4. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
