    2 more days... time is so slow..

      We are over the worst...Pointless international fixtures.

    I've been avoiding FPL since the last gameweek. I presume Salah to Bruno is the big move that everyone is doing?

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

      Yep

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

    A) Coufal, DCL
    B) Cresswell, Watkins + 1.1m (no specific plan for using it but always nice for flexibility)

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Both good options. Any way you could have DCL + Watkins?

    2. Balls of Steel
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      A

  5. Stoichkov#8
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Can Bruno (WBA, Sou) outscore KDB (vs Tot in GW9) + Son (vs Che in GW10) over next 2 games? Is it worth -4?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      When you put it that way, probably

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        This is how it looks really for many of us if you pick between Bruno or KDB this GW.

    2. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Very tricky, it can go either way tbh.

      I have a mantra playing this game, very simple one that no one cares about these days - if the transfered in player is not a clear upgrade to the transfered out player... dont do it.

  6. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Another Bissouma red card possible v/s Grealish?

    1. kime67
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      99% certain of 2pts

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        He will get a yellow against Grealish for sure so 1 point

  7. PascalCygan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Logging back in for the first time since the end of the last game week, had to suck up some price drops and there are some flags to sort...

    My initial plan was TAA + Podence > Coufal / other sub 5.0 def + Grealish (-4)

    Right move?

    1FT 0.0ITB
    Martinez Steer
    TAA* Zouma Justin Struijk Mitchell*
    Salah* Son Bruno Podence Reed
    Kane DCL Maupay

    Thanks!

      Seems solid

      1. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks. That uncharacteristic early wildcard feels worse with every passing week. Oh well!

    2. osfp7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Definitely....villa are willing to ship goals but offset by attacking no matter the opposition...they and leeds are sluggers...perfect attacking candidates for fpl irrespective of win/loss/draw

  8. TimoTime
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Made the dumbest early transfers last week....

    Did Son > Bruno and Jimi > Bamford for -4

    Genuinely forgot that Coronavirus was a thing...

    Bench is in tatters, so just do the extra -4 to do Salah > KDB?

    1. Hybrid.power
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Do it, tis the year for hits

      1. Balls of Steel

        Hits from the bong 🙂

  9. Inazuma X1

    Expecting Leicester to play 5 at the back, they will right?

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I would expect them to

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      This week probably but once the fixtures turn I imagine they will move back to 4 at the back to facilitate another midfielder

      1. Paul Psychic Octopus
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        If only The Waistcoat Man would do the same.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

    This is the time that the better managers overtake the casuals who spunked an early WC on a Mourinho team

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      This is the time casuals get punished for going fixtures over form

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Fixtures dictate form.. casuals dispute that premise

    2. Wardinator
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      There’s these things called free transfers which mean you can “cash-out” & transfer out players that have scored you a heap of points when their fixtures turn bad and there are better options 😉

      Regards,
      Regular

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Salah, Son, Kane owners with obvious other team weaknesses are going to struggle hugely. I wish you luck

        1. abhirup780
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Son to Ziyech
          Kane to Vardy

          2 hits cost only 8 points. Casuals have taken a lead of 50 points.

    3. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Better managers now being ranked 3m? I Wildcarded in gw 4 being on 2 mils and now I'm on 200k and I have 7/11 players of the template WC for this gw

    What do you guys think about defensiv Leicester assets going forward?
    On a WC and trying to decide if I want to get rid of Justin or not. Good fixtures, but a lot of injuries...

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Ricardo back in training but after a serious injury. Think Justin may just see out the nice games between 10-12 but will be tight.

    2. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I would keep. Unlikely that Ricardo will be rushed back after that injury and Leicester haven't exactly being doing badly in his absence.

    3. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Pereira is not gonna play before Christmas for sure. It was a long, long injury...

  13. osfp7
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Hi guys....thoughts on this WC? 1.2itb
    Mccarthy (button)
    Chillwell, james, cancelo (coufal, targett)
    KDB, bruno, ziyech, grealish (bissouma)
    Kane, bamford, watkins

    Wanted double up chelsea defense as differential as everyone seems to have chillwell...planning to get salah in 1 or 2 gw's for kane (betting on price drop to 12.2 on salah)

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Looks really strong. Would love a wildcard for a team like that

      1. osfp7
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks man...of course could backfire if salah doesn't drop further in price lol

  14. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 8 days ago

    I’ve asked this once before but I’m still tempted to do it - any input appreciated

    Already on a -4 with this as my team

    Mendy
    Cress,lamp,Konsa,semado
    Son Zaha Bruno
    Kane dcl bamford

    Anguissa Mitchell salah

    Thinking of going to a -8 for salah to greilish, really want him in my side for the next 6-8 games but already on a hit with a horrendous rank

    1. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Grealish would have to score 6 pts plus to justify it. I'd say it is just about worth it. What have you got to lose if your rank is already low?!

      With this catalogue of injuries and positive Covid tests, we need full playing squads this season.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I don’t have much to lose paul psychic octopus.

  15. estheblessed
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Would you take a hit here?

    Martinez
    Vestergaard, Chillwell, Cresswell
    Bruno, Son, Grealish, Salah
    Kane, Bamford, DCL

    Nyland, Anguissa, Mitchell, Dunne

    1. what\'s my name
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      only mitchell to smb if u aim at keeping Mo

  16. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Tempted to cap Chilwell but is it risky?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Always feels a bit riskier to captain a defender but if anything they should be better options with three routes to points and Newcastle notably worse down Chilwell's side. Go for it if you feel it is right.

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Only issue I have is that I'm worried he won't start

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I'm pretty sure he starts. Fit enough for bench for England last night and Emerson/Alonso are nowhere to be seen these days. Any rest will come for Chelsea players in the Krasnodar fixture in a few weeks.

    2. abhirup780
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I am also tempted. But having it on DCL atm.

    3. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      It is risky. So is crossing the road. It's all relative.

    4. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Newcastle scored in every home game of the last years Vs Chelsea but if you want captain him.

  17. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Would you sacrifice Bruno/Rash(c) this week if it meant having KDB + Ziyech(c) this week?

    By getting in KDB a week early I also have a free transfer to do Kane to Vardy(c) next week.

    Thoughts?

    1. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      If it feels right for you, just do it!

  18. Do I Not Like Orange
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Currently on -8 after doing Foden/Saiss/Mitro > Ziyech/Coufal/Watkins (confident that all those moves are well capable of repaying the hits with a GW or two).

    The question now is whether to make it up to a -12 for Salah > Bruno (c), or bench Salah & captain Grealish?

  19. GreennRed
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    What will Leicester's defence look like when everyone is available? Fofana a slight doubt for Pool game. Castagne, Pereira close to return. Soyuncu could be back in January.

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      First 3 have trained

    2. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Should be Soy/Evans at CB. Ricardo RB. Castagne LB. Peter Shilton in goal.

      The only oddity is that Castagne was bought to replace Chilwell at LB, but has bing playing on the right. Meanwhile Justin - a RB - has been playing LB!

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Justin has been a good pick so far even though I sold him weeks ago. He's worth keeping until he's definitely out.

        1. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I had Justin last season straight after Ricardo's injury and have kept this season. Don't expect to see Ricardo playing until New Year. But you asked "when fit".

        2. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          The point you're missing is it's possible to have T-cells ('immunity') and still test positive. That's all it needs for a player to be ineligible to play under FA protocols.

      2. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Castagne can play both wings, he played both wings for Atalanta and Belgium.

        I think the idea is to have the ability to play both systems, with 3 at the back and 2 wing backs and the routine line of 4. When everyone is fit and firing I personally think LEI has the perfect squad to play a wing system with 3 at the back. They have amazing wing backs in Pereira and Castagne and the midfield of 3 with Tielemans, Ndidi and Under is PERFECT to play an offensive trio with Barnes, Perez and Vardy.

  20. abhirup780

    Martinez, Forster

    Chilwell, Lamptey, KWP, Kilman, Mitchell

  24. Baines on Toast...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2 months, 8 days ago

    If I was WCing this week I'd want a few players guaranteed to play every week over Christmas - the unglamorous Harry Maguires of this world.

    Also probably a few players who've bounced back from Covid and are likely immune - e.g. Mane.

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Having Covid certainly does not guarantee immunity Mr Trump. More and more cases of repeat infections being reported daily

      1. claretparrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        He said "likely immune", which is correct

    2. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Immunity not proven - people have caught it twice, or at least tested positive (false or otherwise) twice, which is all it takes to not play.

      2 because you'd end up with kdb/salah in 2gw instead of kdb/mane

    Would you pick on of the cheap ones through WC?
