Top 10k FPL managers refuse to ditch Kane and Son double-up for Gameweek 9

The top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers have largely kept faith with Tottenham Hotspur despite their recent fixture-swing.

And it looks as if they have already been vindicated in that decision.

65% of these managers held onto the attacking double-up of Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) for a tricky meeting with Manchester City, each one of them registering an attacking return.

Specifically, 86.7% of this rank bracket took Kane into Gameweek 8, his ownership at that level shrinking only as low as 85.4% for Saturday’s visit of the Citizens to north London.

Counting his yellow card, Kane scored four points thanks to his assist for Giovani Lo Celso‘s (£6.9m) second-half finish, extending his run without a blank to eight matches.

And, despite the difficulty of this match on paper, 26.2% of the top 10k still trusted Kane with the captaincy. Only Bruno Fernandes (£10.7m), backed by 28.3%, convinced more managers in that bracket to captain him than the Spurs man.

That ensured Kane still wields significant power in the top 10k, offering effective ownership at that level of 111.4%, the most of any player.

With Fernandes, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) and Hakim Ziyech (£8.2m) enticing Fantasy managers in midfield, it is unsurprising that Son Heung-min (£9.5m) suffered a higher loss of owners in the top 10k.

The South Korean boasted 87.1% ownership at this level for Gameweek 8, which dropped to 74.1% for Gameweek 9.

However, the majority of his backers kept faith in Son, despite the Manchester City fixture, as he remains the most popular midfielder in the top 10k.

These managers were richly rewarded at the first hurdle, as Son scored 10 points in Gameweek 9, finding the net, keeping a clean sheet and earning two bonus.

Courtesy of Mohamed Salah‘s (£12.3m) enforced absence, Fernandes bursts into the template for Gameweek 9, already selected by 48.9% of the top 10k.

He has already racked up significant sway at this level, considering that he was the most captained by top 10k managers for Gameweek 9. That made for effective ownership of 77.2%, the second-highest of any FPL player.

An 11-point score for Gameweek 9 means Fernandes has already made an impact on the upper echelons of the Fantasy rankings.

With Liverpool defenders falling even further by the wayside this season, it is no shock to see the majority of re-modelling in the top 10k came at the back for Gameweek 9.

Chilwell, Werner start for Chelsea as Wilson fails to make Newcastle squad

Ben Chilwell (£6.0m) remains the most-popular defender in the top 10k although his ownership at this level swelled considerably from 34.6% to 49.1%.

Romain Saïss (£5.2m) has left the top-five defenders among top 10k managers, replaced as the third-most-popular by Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.6m).

Meanwhile, even Kurt Zouma (£5.4m) has dropped out of the top five, Max Kilman (£4.3m) finally creeping in, sat in 23.9% of top 10k teams.

Sunday’s meeting between Fulham and Everton at Craven Cottage has boosted the Fantasy potential of Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m).

His top 10k ownership has increased by 8.4 percentage points over the international break while he arrived in Gameweek 9 as the third-most-popular captain option at this level (12.4%).

The number of managers in the top 10k who are yet to deploy a chip continues to get smaller.

After the Gameweek 9 deadline, just 28.6% of these have kept their entire complement intact, while 45% have now used at least one chip.

As you can see, the Wildcard was the most popular of those for Gameweek, used by 6.9% of the top 10k.

Interestingly, we see the continued commitment to Spurs players even here, with Kane kept by 59% of top 10k Wildcards and 41.7% of such managers retaining Son.

    Kept Salah, Son + Kane to Vardy + Ziyech -4. Made the mistake of looking at teams around me in a cash mini league and went different to try and get a boost. 0-1 to the man.

      Vardy can easily save you.

      I also kept Salah. Did Son to Ziyech and don't have Fernandes. Huge red arrow..

    Early thoughts on this bunch?

    Martínez (Forster)
    Coufal, Chilwell, Cancelo (Lamptey) (Mitchell)
    Grealish, Fernandes, Ziyech, Son (Burke)
    Kane, Jiménez, Calvert-Lewin

    1 FT, 1.9 in bank

    Unlikely to save with Jimmy there so might be looking at -4 or -8 if changing 3 attackers/formation possibly.

    Will wait until Friday regardless.

    Cheers

      Jimenez to Vardy, Aguero or Antonio depending on what happens between now and Friday.

    3. Magic Zico

      Any plan for Vardy and KDB?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years

        Anything is possible, if Burnley/Fulham are terrible.

        Had more until Pod to Ziyech.
        Salah will be come in, more concerned about points, expecting a hit a GW for a while.

    5. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years

      Needs KDB or Sterling and Salah if fit

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        5 days, 5 hours ago

        Jimmy, Kane, Ziyech the ones to lose

          Yeah, many combos. Wish I didn't get Ziyech for a hit.

    Is Mings to Cancelo for free a good move this week?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      5 days, 5 hours ago

      Mings has nice fixtures.

      1. Noah’s Ark
        • 8 Years
        5 days, 5 hours ago

        He does but I have Martinez also. Probably right though, thank you.

  4. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    5 days, 5 hours ago

    Got Bruno as a placeholder for Salah on WC, is he looking like a season keeper?
    If City continue to disappoint then might even consider selling KDB later instead

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      5 days, 5 hours ago

      Should be obvious soon.

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        5 days, 5 hours ago

        True, next 2 games will be interesting

  5. Kakashi Of The Leaf
    • 4 Years
    5 days, 5 hours ago

    How was Rashford yesterday? Glad i stuck the armband on Richarlison.

    1. Chaste
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 5 hours ago

      Wasted chances

  6. slavkob
    • 3 Years
    5 days, 5 hours ago

    Mendy, Button
    Chilwell, Coufal, Justin, Targett, 3.9
    KDB, Bruno, Ziyech, Jrod, Grealish
    Kane, DCL, Brewster

    0.8 itb

    What's better for next 3 gameweeks:

    A) 3.9 > Cancelo, Kane > Vardy (-4)
    B) 3.9 > Cancelo, Jrod > Sterling, Kane > Watkins (-8)

    So basically should I go for a City triple up or Vardy? I don't even know what to think about getting Salah backy but probably will do it in GW12..

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      Games today will help.

      1. slavkob
        • 3 Years
        5 days, 5 hours ago

        Thanks, hopefully JRod will go back to his form from the start of the season.

  7. POTATO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    5 days, 5 hours ago

    1FT. calmly planning ahead for GW10 fixture swing, pick one. (Advice is difficult to come by on the last hectic day before price changes and deadlines):

    A - Kane > Vardy(c)
    B - Salah > KdB(c)
    C - Rollover FT, Bruno(c)

    1. POTATO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 days, 5 hours ago

      On a side-note, owning Lamptey looks like a lot of fun for FPL managers.

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 5 hours ago

      Can’t tell without seeing the rest of your squad. A -4 might be better

      1. POTATO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 days, 5 hours ago

        Fair enough, here's the team:

        Martinez (Forster)
        Chilwell - Cresswell - Robertson - (Kilman - Mitchell)
        Zaha - B.Fernandes - J.Rodriguez - Salah - (Podence)
        Watkins - Kane - Bamford
        0.4itb 0FT

        1. POTATO
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          5 days, 5 hours ago

          * 1FT

        2. cfreel
          • 7 Years
          5 days, 4 hours ago

          Roll the transfer I reckon and if Salah is confirmed to start then captain him

          1. POTATO
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            5 days, 4 hours ago

            Thanks, Salah news will be pivotal. Hoping to avoid early transfers and hits this week.

    3. cfreel
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 5 hours ago

      Would be reluctant to get rid of Kane even though Vardy next 3 look excellent.
      Depends on Salah fitness. Can you keep Kane and Vardy?
      I agree with Ibrox.

  8. TorresMagic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 11 Years
    5 days, 5 hours ago

    Not much left for LMS EO

    DCL 93, McC 29, Zaha/JRodz 28, Bam/Robbo 26, Coufal 20, Vardy 15, Jim/KWP/Cress 13

    1. POTATO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 days, 5 hours ago

      Just curious TorresMagic™, where do you get those figures?
      I had a look at liveFPL LMS EO but the the figures are different - so I guess yours exclude managers that have been eliminated from the competition by are still in the league?

      They were on Wildcard.

  12. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    5 days, 5 hours ago

    Does this look good to save for next week?
    Martinez (Forster)
    Chilwell Cancelo Coufal(Lamptey)(Neco)
    KDB Fernandes Ziyech Grealish (Riedewald)
    Vardy(C) DCL Watkins

    1 FT and 2.1 itb to get in Salah whenever needed

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 5 hours ago

      KDB a far better captain than Vardy. Vardy only does well on the counter (won’t happen against Fulham) and with lucky pens.

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        5 days, 5 hours ago

        True, will have to see how Vardy and Fulham look this GW as well...
        Just don't see Burnley getting thrashed but don't see KDB blanking either

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years
          5 days, 5 hours ago

          Looks good otherwise. Who leaves for Salah?

          1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
            • 4 Years
            5 days, 5 hours ago

            Plan was Bruno to Salah for GW12

            But I could also lose Vardy, Sadly 0.1 short of Vardy, Riedewald to Brewster,Salah right now.
            Another Salah drop or maybe a Vardy double rise would help me a lot that time..

  13. seewhyaxe

    5 days, 5 hours ago

    Didn't watch the City/Spurs game, so quite surprised both Son & Kane returned.

    How did both teams fare?
    -Is Son/Kane worth keeping?
    -KDB/Raz worth bringing in?

    1. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      5 days, 5 hours ago

      Spurs look like a complete team.

      We are still way off.

      Season keepers Son and Kane until further notice.

      I'm not bothering with either in for now.

      1. seewhyaxe
        • 3 Years
        5 days, 5 hours ago

        thanks! My planned moves were either or both Son/Kane out for gw10.

        Might need to evaluate again.

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years
          5 days, 5 hours ago

          Chase the upside and do both out. 4 and 10 not great for their price points and they aren’t going to be winning or mauling teams with their immediate fixtures

          1. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            5 days, 5 hours ago

            Ridiculous advice but each to their own

            1. IRBOX ⚽
              • 3 Years
              5 days, 5 hours ago

              How is that ridiculous? City will batter at least 2 or 3 of those 4 teams at home. Pep will be looking for a response

              1. Pavsboot

                • 6 Years
                5 days, 5 hours ago

                Or y'know. You could look at both team's recent form and come away thinking City will grind out some 1-0's and Spurs will keep hitting the better teams on the counter.

                1. Stupendous
                  • 8 Years
                  5 days, 4 hours ago

                  I didn't bother replying to him/her.

                  Kane and Son are by far the best two options in the game and Spurs are top of the league.

                  I am a Blue. We could be 15th today!!!

      KDB with 2 big chances created and was only denied a goal by his own team mate getting in the way of an open net. Unlucky not to haul 15-20 points. BUR FUL WBA NEW at the Etihad is far too tempting to not double up

    Great article.
    Currently sitting at a rank of 7000 with all my chips still in tact.
    Potential transfers for next week will involve Vardy, KDB, Sterling, Aguero/Jesus, Cancelo.
    Need to also consider a Liverpool option back in.
    So happy with my performance this year so far!

    Two games on Monday? Very disappointing, what's the point...

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 5 hours ago

      Glad I don't have any players in those games.

      Liverpool game is too late though, wanted to watch Mane and Vardy.

  16. Kakashi Of The Leaf
    • 4 Years

    Pick one

    A Aguero Rashford
    B Martial Sterling

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 5 hours ago

      Umm, none really. If forced, A

    2. cfreel

      A - check agueros fitness though

    3. The Knights Template

    Man, discovering expected stats has screwed me over as a FPL player. Need to learn to use them better.

        Hopefully DCL repays us! Serious regret over not getting Fernandes.

        1. Kakashi Of The Leaf
          • 4 Years
          5 days, 4 hours ago

          Went Rashford over Fernandes 2 weeks back. 17 points difference.

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            5 days, 4 hours ago

            Rashford will repay you next week. Werner, Zaha, and Son have already exploited Southampton's high line.

    2. Kakashi Of The Leaf
      • 4 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      I did quite better without them and solely relied on eye test.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 days, 4 hours ago

        Main issue with them is variance is such a massive part of footall, even over 38 games. Eye test is the key for sure.

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      I never trust them. For me, it's the worst possible number to use for making decisions.

      I probably don't know how to use it but it's better to stick with basic numbers. Expected stats seems like stating the obvious and gives no beneficial information.

      Used them for one whole season of MLS fantasy, always ended up with wrong options.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 days, 4 hours ago

        It just isn't suited to game like FPL.

        Of course there are high quality managers who use it very effectively but it doesn't seem like the right approach to me.

  18. Kakashi Of The Leaf
    • 4 Years
    5 days, 4 hours ago

    What would you do here.

    Areola
    PVA Dallas KWP
    KDB (C) Rashford Son Ziyech
    Jimenez Richarlison Watkins

    Have 3.6 ITB . One free Transfer

    Had lined up Son>Sterling. But want to keep Son now.

    Dallas>Cancelo/Diaz
    Or
    Jimenez>Aguero

    1. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Get rid of Areola immediately?????
      As for the rest, I'd do think about selling Jimenez tbh. Wolves do not look very good attacking this season.
      Jimenez to Vardy?

      1. Kakashi Of The Leaf
        • 4 Years
        5 days, 4 hours ago

        Agree bout Jimenez. But not sold out on Vardy.

        Waiting for Aguero to play midweek.
        Martial an option maybe?

        1. BenDavies
          • 7 Years
          5 days, 4 hours ago

          Martial looks completely out of form right now. Steer clear. Aguero also risky with his injury record and Pep managing his minutes. Vardy is a proven explosive asset and fully fit. Can't see anything wrong with him.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Dallas to Cancelo

      1. Kakashi Of The Leaf
        • 4 Years
        5 days, 4 hours ago

        Cheers mate. Isnt Diaz better due to a congested schedule?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          5 days, 4 hours ago

          Yep he is. But feels like 3 games of Cancelo would be enough to outscore 4 games of Dias.

          Even Dias might miss 1-2 games, tough to predict.

  19. Zilla
    • 3 Years
    5 days, 4 hours ago

    Ziyech, yes or no?

    1. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Not now.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Any other option?

      1. Zilla
        • 3 Years
        5 days, 4 hours ago

        As in who I am replacing him with? Looking for a potential Hames replacement.

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          5 days, 4 hours ago

          Why remove Rodriguez so early? Leeds and Burnley up next.

          1. Zilla
            • 3 Years
            5 days, 4 hours ago

            Well should stated that it wasn't for this GW or next. Just thinking ahead.

        2. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          5 days, 4 hours ago

          I meant any other option that you are considering.

          Keep Rodriguez for next game. Feels like 7-10 bracket has no standout option at the moment.

    3. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      As a Chelsea fan, I'm not convinced of him as a serious FPL option just yet. He was close to assists yesterday but being close to them seems to be a theme with him.

    4. Polka Wakey O'Dot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Not sure. Tbh, today was the first time I’ve watched him play...maybe an off day for him...

    5. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      No

  20. Tsparkes10
    • 2 Years
    5 days, 4 hours ago

    Any early ideas?? 2FT 0.8itb

    McCarthy
    Konsa Coufal Chillwell
    Son Bruno Hamez Greal
    DCL Werner Vardy
    (Nyland, Podence, KWP, Mitchell)

    Was set on Son out and probs downgrade Hamez to Jota or DCL but now not sure

    1. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Wait for Everton's game today. If they're firing on all cylinders then you can keep both Hamez and DCL. Your team is pretty good and has no real urgent transfers. I'd recommend using the 1 FT though as wasting a transfer is never good. Maybe Mitchell out for a better defender if he doesn't play on Monday.

  21. Kakashi Of The Leaf
    • 4 Years
    5 days, 4 hours ago

    Martial could easily have had a brace. So wasteful.
    Missed similar chances for France last week.

    1. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      That's been his entire season so far.

      1. Kakashi Of The Leaf
        • 4 Years
        5 days, 4 hours ago

        Apart from scoring he doesn't do much wrong interms of Linkup play and his passing.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      He's too good of a player to keep missing these chances, the goals will come. Probably against the Saints' high line.

  22. Wirbelwind
    • 3 Years
    5 days, 4 hours ago

    Stephens to zaha? (Have Fernandes, Kris, son, grealish)
    Would allow me to field 3defs instead of 4.

    Getting Salah or kdb back worries for later

  23. slavkob
    • 3 Years
    5 days, 4 hours ago

    Mendy, Button
    Chilwell, Coufal, Justin, Targett, 3.9
    KDB, Bruno, Ziyech, Jrod, Grealish
    Kane, DCL, Brewster

    0.8 itb

    What's better for next 3 gameweeks:

    A) 3.9 > Cancelo, Kane > Vardy (-4)
    B) 3.9 > Cancelo, Jrod > Sterling, Kane > Watkins (-8)

    So basically should I go for a City triple up or Vardy?

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A. Sterling hasn't done enough to justify a triple up.

    3. BenDavies
      • 7 Years

      Don't you have the exact same post on this very same page!?
      At least wait until a new page comes ffs

    4. Pavsboot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      A looks better but neither are that appealing tbh.

    5. Polka Wakey O'Dot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Dunno. Kane is becoming increasingly difficult to know what he is. Is he a season keeper, is he a striker, why is he scoring so many pts. I’m convinced he will haunt whoever we take him out for. Considering Kane > Vardy (c) myself...but I’m not convinced yet.

      1. slavkob
        • 3 Years
        5 days, 4 hours ago

        Yes very strange situation. Spurs had 2 shots on target today. 4 in total. They've got some rough fixtures untill Christmas. Doubt that Kane will outscore Vardy in the next three weeks. It would fund my 3.9 to Cancelo. Very tempting, will wait for friday.

  24. Kay317
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    5 days, 4 hours ago

    If you had to sell one, who would it be:.
    A) Son
    B) Kane

    1. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Before today I'd have said A but now I'd say B. What this means is both are good and it's a lottery.

      1. Kay317
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 days, 4 hours ago

        Kane was a little unlucky not to come away with more points today. Have to agree with you, both are on great form so will be a gamble

        1. Polka Wakey O'Dot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          5 days, 4 hours ago

          What is he now?...really hard to define him as a striker, or a midfielder....whatever he is he does it really really well. I posted in another place that he’s slowly becoming like Yaya of old...in that he just seems to be a bigger player than everybody else.

          1. BenDavies
            • 7 Years
            5 days, 4 hours ago

            He's like a quarterback

            1. Polka Wakey O'Dot
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              5 days, 4 hours ago

              He’s definitely changing his game. I quite like it.

              1. BenDavies
                • 7 Years
                5 days, 4 hours ago

                Mourinho has convinced him to play for the team rather than for goals alone, it's great for Spurs.

                1. Polka Wakey O'Dot
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 8 Years
                  5 days, 4 hours ago

                  Seems so. If it is then it’s a great call by Jose...still scoring, still assisting..so it’s all good. Not many players come along who are fully rounded like that...he even did his share of parking the bus today (as did Son).

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      If Kane scores without being offside, A.
      He didn't so it's B.

    3. abhirup780
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      I'd sell Kane because it is easy to get Vardy this way for next 3 GWs

    4. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Depends on who you will bring. Their are probably more replacement for Kane as compared to Son.

      1. Kay317
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 days, 4 hours ago

        Could switch to 3-5-2 if selling kane. I don't have Salah or KDB at the mo so could use kane or son to get them or just go kane to vardy. Worries me not having Salah though. And KDB for that matter.

      2. Polka Wakey O'Dot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 days, 4 hours ago

        As always though he is one of the ones for who we might choose our (c) pick. I notice Tammy Abraham is doing really well for example...but is he a (c) pick.

        I sort of decided early on that Kane (c) in an Okey Cokey with Salah (c) (Largely) might be a good ploy...not changed my mind yet.

    5. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      B

      Keeping both for now

  25. Holmes
    • 7 Years
    5 days, 4 hours ago

    Kane, Lookman, Kilman to Bamford, Kevin, Cancelo for -4pts. Worth it?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Alternatively, I can just do boring Kilman to Cancelo and save other FT.

    2. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Yes that is most definitely worth it, alarmingly so

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Yes

    4. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Might be worth it

  26. abhirup780
    • 6 Years

    Any Salah update?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Nope, waiting game.

  27. NABIL - 1 season 1der
    • 8 Years
    5 days, 4 hours ago

    Hey DZ

    Barkley to Salah to KDB?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Kevin for now. Prepare other route for Salah, 2 weeks left.

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        5 days, 4 hours ago

        Exactly my thinking. Cheers man

  28. abhirup780
    • 6 Years

    Considering Sterling and Foden didn't start against Spurs, how likely that they will start for the next two GWs?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      Sterling should, Foden who knows

          Yeah, still confident. More irritated that I was silly and ignored the easy switch to Fernandes (C) this week that I could have made but I do have faith in the decision making process for DCL, whatever happens.

            Yeah, still hope and room for confidence. Always knew that game at OT last night would be a low scoring affair, but didn't expect bruno to still came out with double digit haul despite owning him lol. Ful vs eve today supposed to be high scoring him with so many headed chances for DCL. Pray for our luck!

    2. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      I think Foden will start at least one of the next two. Maybe both.
      Sterling will likely start both.
      After today's performance I can't see Pep starting Mahrez or Bernardo consistently anymore.

  29. Tambling5
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    5 days, 4 hours ago

    Was idly considering whether the presence of a 3.8 defender (Douglas LEE),
    after his drop today, was worth considering, when noticed he still has 5.3% ownership. He could godown further presumably! Don't always understand the nature of price rises/falls.

    1. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      For anyone who hasn't used their WC still he'll be great.

        Well I haven't used mine yet, trying to save till week 16-ish, but was wondering if he may go down even more.

    2. Polka Wakey O'Dot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 days, 4 hours ago

      How often do you play your 3rd sub?...if the answer is never, or very, very seldom, then 3.8 is a good price for a “never”....

    3. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      Roughly 10% ownership selling.

      1. Tambling5
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 days, 3 hours ago

        It would be interesting to know how much of his ownership is in inactive teams. Presumably the fact he dropped meant over half a million have ditched him (?), so it can't be too many.

        1. Tambling5
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
