    I've had Bamford for a good long while now. Stick, twist?

      I'd like to believe that he will, on average, over the season, do more good than harm especially at his price point. Would love to know how other holders are thinking. There, that's better than my first go.

      Leeds fixtures turn green in a couple of GWs, I'd keep.

        Thinking same but looking for ideas 😉 - thanks

      I'm looking to bring him in soon

        Holding onto him. Antonio or Watkins would have been my potential moves if I were on a WC but fitness and lack of Barkley are putting me off them respectively.

    Advice on this wildcard team please

    McCarthy Steer

    KWP, Chillwell, Dias/Cancelo, Neco Williams, Justin

    Son, Bruno, De Bruyne, Jota, bissouma

    DCL, Kane, Wilson

    Option A) Watkins instead of Wilson (will allow me to swap KDB for Salah more easily)
    Option B) Vardy instead of Kane but keep Wilson

    Tia

    1. Slitherene
      • 2 Years

      Kwp to Targett
      Kane to Vardy

    2. CONNERS

      Looks good overall.

      Villa attack being the obvious omission. I'd also personally take a punt on Vardy for the next few and leave money ITB to get Kane back.

      I also quite fancy Dallas as a long term cheap option. Can see him getting some attacking returns when Leeds' fixtures swing in a couple of weeks.

      I still have my wild card and would be very unsure what team to pick this week. Are City going to put teams to the sword again? Are Spurs and Chelsea's run of form going to continue as they play fewer teams in bottom six? Are Utd assets reliable? It may be easier to tell in a week or two, so I am hanging onto mine. Have you any money left? I'd definitely prefer Vardy this next few games over Kane as has better fixtures, and you have Son. Good luck!

    4. Nay08

        A. but with vardy. vardy fixtures look too good to ignore. later you can upgrade him to kane, assuming you have the fund bcs you choose kane in the first place.

    5. ivantys
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Kane to Vardy not worth -4 if I'm not gonna captain Vardy right?

        1. TOLV TUMS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Literally just got back here after doing Kane to Vardy, that fixture v Fulham has to be a bit mouth-watering and especially so after being flat v Liverpool. He's my (c) this week.

          1. ivantys
              3 months, 5 days ago

              I really feel like doing son to salah for free since lamptey's out, but vardy always scores against the promoted teams.

          I'm thinking seriously of doing the Jrod to Jota move today before the deadline.
          I don't know why but I believe this Brighton away game can be bread and butter for Jota's counter attacking instincts.
          Do you think I should do it?

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Jota is a good pick.

            So is Rodriguez with a career record of scoring every 1 in 3 games or so.

            1. TOLV TUMS
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              Are we super sure Jota is nailed on? Feels like there's still a little flux there. LIV supporter, full disclosure.

                • 5 Years

                I'm not super sure of anything in lockdown football

                  Well said:)

            2. AC/DC AFC
              • 5 Years

              Ok, a league goal every 3.25 games.

              Plays in in average just under 24 league games a season, over 13 years so far.

          1FT, WC available.
          Concerned by the lack of City, Pool, and Vardy, or am I overthinking it?

          A) WC
          B) Kane > Vardy (0.1 short of Werner to Vardy)
          C) Something else?

          Current team:
          McCarthy 4.0
          Zouma KWP Justin Ayling Lamptey
          Bruno Ziyech Son Grealish McCarthy
          Kane Werner DCL

          Worth WC to:

          McCarthy 4.0
          Cancelo Masuaku KWP Justin Kilman
          KDB Salah Bruno Grealish 4.5
          Vardy DCL Brewster

            3 months, 5 days ago

            Are you planning 442? With two higher priced forwards it will be difficult to make single transfers if someone injured with only six playing attack/mids. Would prefer a team structure with DCL or Vardy and two at price of Bamford Wilson etc myself.

          2. TOLV TUMS
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Not sure about the WC necessity factor but the alternate team looks good. Are people considering Brewster as a viable starter? Have to admit that I haven't been paying a great deal of attention but he seems to be popping up a bit more lately

        4. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Would you be tempted to play Neco Williams over Coufal? Don't think Neco will come on at all if he's benched so it might be worth a punt.

            Need Help
            Best Captain for GW10:
            A. Vardy vs poor fulham defence
            B. KDB vs burnley (with Pope 25% chance of playing)

            1. AC/DC AFC
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              Is Vardy away?

              If not KDB got to return big soon.

              1. TOLV TUMS
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Or at least return at some level.

            2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              A

            3. TOLV TUMS
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              A for me

            4. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              A

            5. Nay08
                3 months, 4 days ago

                since Pope is the one that made me hesitant to put c on kdb, I choose B.

            6. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              Which of these do you prefer for GW11?
              A) Salah vs WOL(H)
              B) Bruno vs WHU(A)

              1. AC/DC AFC
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Wolves are good in defence and West Ham can give Man United a good game.

                1. TOLV TUMS
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years
                  3 months, 5 days ago

                  I'm also expecting a solid show from WHU v Manyoo - history and form point to that, at least a little

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

                    So you would lean towards Salah as well?

              2. AC/DC AFC
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                A

              3. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
                • 8 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                A

                That's why I'm going to sell Bruno this week, for KDB

                  3 months, 5 days ago

                  Mental.. Bruno is far better away from home and will make a mockery of the Saints high line

                  1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
                    • 8 Years
                    3 months, 5 days ago

                    That high line was nowhere to be found last week.

                    Thinking soton have learnt their lesson

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

                      Ralph is stubborn as they come.. will be exposed due to their mental press.. Saints Leeds and Brighton have the most aggressive press in the league and are being found out defensively

              Play Dallas (eve) or Kilman (ars)?

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

                Tricky one, Kilman imo but only just

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

                Arsenal haven’t scored an open play goal since GW5 (mental I know) and Kilman registered 3 headed attempts in the box against the Saints so I would swing towards him. Granted, Dallas is more attacking - however I see Everton putting 2 or 3 past Leeds

                1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 5 days ago

                  So Kilman edges it eh

              Hey everyone!

              McCarthy
              KWP Chilwell Justin
              Podence Bruno Rodríguez Son
              DCL Kane Bamford

              Button Bissouma Mitchell Trent

              1FT & 3.0M ITB

              A. Son + Trent -> KDB + Cancelo
              B. Rodríguez + Trent -> KDB + Cancelo
              C. Trent -> Cancelo

              Inclined towards A, leaves me with 2.5M to move from Bruno to Salah in the next GW. Sets up nicely for the upcoming weeks.

              C obviously avoids the hit this GW but might just be delaying it until the next one (?)

              B. Everton have a couple decent fixtures and want to give Rodríguez a last run before moving to Grealish/Ziyech.

              Thoughts?

              Cheers!

                C. Avoids the hit and lets you see how Son and James do and which of them do you want to keep. Also, lets you see how KdB and City do.

              Forgot to transfer out Maupay before the price drop. Losing 0.2 on a player who never returned you points is one of FPL’s worst feelings. Thanks Maupay, now **** off.

                  I’m with you on that one, got him in at gw5 and he’s done sweet FA!
                  Probably gonna stick with him till after the Fulham game at least now he has dropped... got more pressing matters.

                Any help/advice appreciated

                Martinez
                Chillwell Semedo Cancelo
                Bruno Rashford Son Grealish Ziyech
                Kane Bamford

                A) Kane>Vardy(C)
                B) Take hit/hits and get KDB/Salah

                Martinez (Button)
                Cancelo Kilman Chilwell (Mitchell, Lamptey)
                Fernandes Son JRod Foden (Bissouma)
                Werner Kane DCL

                Worth a 8pt hit to go:

                Werner + Son + Foden --> Bamford + Salah + Ziyech

                Open to other suggestions. Any help would be great.

                Cheers

                Martinez, McCarthy
                Robertson, Dallas, KWP, Semedo, Sakho
                Jota, Fernandes, Son, Ziyech, Barkley
                DCL, Kane, Brewster
                1FT, 0,2ITB

                Needs tweaking but I'm out of ideas.
                Brewster and SHU have been apalling, but can't get anyone with -4.
                Sakho to Konsa feels right considering fixtures and Sakho not playing..
                Feel that DCL's form is dropping and could free some cash if I'd get Bamford/Wilson.

                  sorry, meant that can't get anyone in for Brewster WITHOUT taking a hit.

                Is it crazy to take a hit toget in Salah for Son, if i cap him over Fernandes?
