    Thoughts on Ferran Torres ?

    1. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Risky, but looks good when he plays.

      Prob a transfer out waiting to happen though.

      1. Rinseboy
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Hi Tom, what are your thoughts on the Kane to Vardy move this week? being asked a lot including by me! Thanks

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Sorry mate, only just seen this.

          I'd be tempted by this move yeah, but it's risky losing Kane.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Great player when playing.

    3. Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      too risky I think

    4. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      You know it’s a risk.

  3. Rinseboy
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Kane to Vardy for a -4 and captain this week?
    Or captain Bruno or DCL?

    Martinez
    Robbo Chilwell Dias
    Son Grealish Jota Bruno Ziyech
    Kane DCL
    Brewster Mitchell Lamptey

    1. Pickle juice
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I’m in the same boat and thinking of doing it for -4

    2. Pickle juice
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      No Man City asset .

      1. Rinseboy
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Dias!

        Would require a -8 to get KDB or Sterling and Kane to Jesus/Aguero is too much of a gamble for my liking

    3. LSK
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Captain Bruno gtg

    4. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I might do it for free but certainly not for a hit.

  4. n14mul
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Think I'm done, few hits taken but happy

    Mccarthy
    Chilwell Robbo Justin
    Salah Ziyech KDB Jota Hames
    DCL Bamford

    Thoughts?

    1. Pickle juice
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I wouldn’t be

      1. n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Care to expand

    2. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Looks good to me. Obviously Vardy is the cause celebre at the moment but I think there's better long term picks. Concerns about Hames (he's distributing to the wings rather than the striker) and Jota is potentially a rotation risk although he looks too good to drop at the moment. Think people who hung on to Robbo have been smart - he's looking increasingly good up the wings

      1. n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Hames on the block after the Leeds game for grealish..

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

    Kane -> Vardy (C) and Semedo -> Dias done for a -4. Pleased with the moves, now for the toughie - Foden to Jota for another -4?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      No not for a hit.

    2. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Hold where you are, no need for another hit.

    3. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Hi flair, I'm tempted to do Semedo to Dias/ Cancelo for a hit as well but not sure it's worth the -4. What was your rationale?

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I know I'll be using my FTs on high impact moves with premium assets so I figured I'd get this inevitable transfer over with, very possible I'd just end up taking the hit later. Didn't want to already have a FT locked in for next GW when the likes of KDB and Salah are waiting.

        I'm sure Dias will be outstanding value over the long term and would be shocked to not get a CS this week while there's a decent chance Semedo doesn't get one so that -4 could be paid off this week anyways.

        1. fish&chips
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Cool thanks, pretty much along my lines of thinking. I'll mull it over today!

  6. stu92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Jrod > KDB (-4)?

    Already have DCL, but no City coverage. Alternative would be to take a -4 for a City defender.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Now that one looks tempting.

      1. stu92
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 5 days ago

        You support the move to KDB?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Yes, just about.

    2. FPL.team
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I'm doing it this week for free. I'd probably still do it for a hit but Rodriguez could score well too this week so it's tough.

  7. Foozeball
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    How likely is it for Harvey Barnes to start on Monday? Concerned he will get benched like against Wolves

  8. mlm
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Son + Kane => Salah(c) + Vardy

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Yes but with Vardy(c) for me.

      1. mlm
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        If vardy(c), i should not get salah

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I know how tempting it is but they’re the top scorers in the game.

  9. Boberella
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Already taken a hit this week which I’m happy with.
    Would you take another hit for Saiss to someone else? Only gonna have 2 playing DEFs if not.

    Already have Chilly and Coufal. Options would be Cancelo/Dias

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Good to have a full team so yes.

      1. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Thanks. Which City def you prefer?

        1. 2OLEgend
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Dias

      2. LSK
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        If you’ll be down to ten men otherwise then it’s probably worth it.

        1. Boberella
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Thanks.

    2. Luton_Fan
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Is Kane, ziyech and hamez to vardy, jota and kdb madness? -8

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Utter

      2. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Yes.

      3. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Probably

      4. TheSteel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Yup

    3. Muscout
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      McCarthy
      Cancelo, Chilwell, Lamptey
      Bruno, Sterling, Son, Zaha, Soucek
      Kane, DCL

      Steer, Brewster, Mitchell, Branthwaite

      2 FT, £2.6 itb

      Mitchell and Zaha to Kilman and Jota/Grealish ?

      1. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Just Zaha to Grealish/Jota and save a FT

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

          Defender short.

          1. Boberella
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Ah yes. Missed the that.
            Definitely Mitchell out then

      2. Luton_Fan
        • 11 Years

        Good moves

      3. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Why is Lamptey in your staring 11?

    4. Flynny
      • 5 Years

      Hi....who to prioritise this week? Other comes in next week or gw12

      A... kdb

      B...Salah

      Thanks

      1. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I’d take a punt in A this week

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Coin flip.

      3. Luton_Fan

        1. Flynny
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Coin flip isn't it...

          But if I get kdb I can also get sterling for Fulham gw10 before swapping him for salah..

    5. Feedtheyak
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Maddison or Barnes for a punt?

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Maddison

        Barnes

        Vardy

      3. UNDERWORLD7

      4. Riders of Yohan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Vardy

    7. The Yorkshire Pirlo
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Keep Kane and sell Son for KDB?

      Really unsure what to do regarding City 🙁

      1. TheSteel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I would do that move. Kane>Vardy next week

        1. The Yorkshire Pirlo
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          I already have Vardy mate, quite an expensive front line...

    8. Mile Plankton
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Am I wrong to assume that I will have 3 playing defenders in James, Coufal and Justin?

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        unless James gets benched for Azpi v spurs.

        1. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Can’t see that happening to be fair

        2. Mile Plankton
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Right. I've been carrying Saiss for too long now. Time to get rid even for a hit.

    9. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      A Son -> KDB
      B Kane -> Vardy
      C Neither

      Martinez
      Chilwell Zouma Robbo
      Bruno Son Grealish Jota
      DCL Kane Bamford

    10. Esalman

      Are stats such as xG and xA estimated over a full season or a certain number of matches?

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Can be either.

    11. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Thoughts on the following wildcard?

      McCarthy (4.0)
      Zouma, Cresswell, Dias (kilman, Ferguson)
      Bruno, KDB, Salah, Jota, Ziyech
      DCL, Bamford (Brewster)

      £0.1ITB

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Not for me.

        1. Riders of Yohan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          What would yours be?

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Well I’d start with Chilwell and imagine not having Vardy this week. Id down grade Ziyech as well.

      2. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        A WC and you’re not including Chillwell on it? Let alone Vardy for the short term, or even Kane? Not for me, forwards too cheap, a mid has to go imo.

        1. Riders of Yohan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          The money saved with Zouma I though was worth it re chilwell. Can do a 2 FT to bring Kane back in. Vardy is a tempting short term punt but really want KDB, Salah and Bruno.

          What would be your template wc?

          1. UNDERWORLD7
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Not really, surely you know Chillwell is very much the preferred choice over Zouma? Entirely your choice though.
            I’d have Vardy any day to take advantage but hey man it’s your team. Just strikes me as a strangely picked WC, forwards really lack.

      3. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I’d want Chilwell and Vardy on a WC

        1. Riders of Yohan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Seems to be the consensus... thanks!

      What are the chances of Mitchell starting this gameweek guys?

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Probably low.

      2. waldo666

        Would love to know this, would assist me in my decision making for this week.

        1. Rupert The Horse

      Zaha and Kane
      To
      Salah and Vardy(c)?

      Allows me to keep Son too

      4. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Could pay off, although selling Kane isn’t ideal

        1. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          I know mate trust me!

      A) kane & Bissouma -> Salah & Bamford (-4)
      B) kane & Bissouma -> Salah & Antonio (-4)
      C) Bissouma-> jota

      1. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Any news on Antonio yet?
        I’d probably do C only this week

    15. Flair

      Any thoughts on the chances of Mane being benched?

      1. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I think there is a chance. Jota Bobby Salah to start I reckon

        Any reason for thinking that or general speculation?

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 5 days ago

          The amounts of minutes he's gotten over the past weeks, especially the midweek CL game.

      3. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        I think with Jota around and in form along with a generally busy schedule there’s no reason not to rest Mane and Salah now and again.

      Martinez

      Son - Bruno - Jrod
      Vardy - DCL - Adams
      (4.0 - Soucek - Barkley* - Lamptey*)

      A) Jrod > KDB (-4)

          Is no City coverage unwise going into next 2 weeks though?

    17. tbhogal
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      So are most people keeping Kane this week ?

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Not for me, Kane to Vardy for sure

      2. Groot the Leveller
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Just read back ....
        There is no right answer or concensus on kane and son -> vardy/kdb.
        Some like neither one or both...

    18. Super Jack Grealish
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Thinking of Semedo > Cancelo this week and then work towards Robbo + Bruno > 5.7 + Salah or Zieych + Bruno > Salah + Jota in the next two weeks

      Martinez, Forster
      Robertson, Chilwell, Semedo, Dallas, 3.9
      KDB, Bruno, Zieych, Grealish, Stephens
      Kane, DCL, Bamford

      1 FT, 0.2 ITB

      I have some pretty big defensive issues but feel like there will be more to gained by the moves below even if it means a potential blank in defence, thoughts?

      Jimenez and McGinn to Bamford/Watkins/Antonio and KDB

      1. stu92
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Tempted by Antonio if fit, otherwise go Watkins. Maybe it’s just because I didn’t jump on the bandwagon but feel the Bamford party is over.

        1. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Bamford party is far from over, it’s only a quarter into the season

    20. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years

      This is how I'm thinking of shaping up for this weekend.Son and Wilson out for Jota and Vardy.

      Martinez
      Dallas Chilly Coufal
      Bruno Jota Sterling Grealish
      DCL Vardy(c) Kane

      Kilman Lamptey Stephens.

    21. Stupendous

      Alright this will be it if I do the moves above....

      Martinez
      Chilwell Cresswell Robbo
      Salah Grealish Son Ziyech Rodriguez
      Vardy (c) DCL

        Very good looking 11 but bench is weak.
