      Decided not to go with Vardy and pulled the trigger on Jrod to KDB

      Martinez
      Justin Chilwell Masuaku
      KDB(c) Son Jota Fernandes
      Kane DCL Bamford

      Mendy Grealish Kilman Lamptey

      Might take Chilwell out for Kilman

      1. Mile Plankton

        I wouldn't bench Chilwell.

        1. SmasherLagru

          I wouldn't bench grealish either

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Why is Grealish on the bench?

          • 10 Years

          I think he wont do well against West Ham .They play 5-4-1 and sit in playing on the counter

    • Atwood

      2FT's and 1.6 spare
      Thinking Zaha > Jota
      Hold the extra FT or anything worth doing?

      Martinez
      Robertson - Chilwell - Justin
      Grealish - Zaha - Son - Fernandes
      Kane - DCL - Wilson

      KWP - Dallas - Bissouma

      1. Pukki Blinders

        Do Son to KDB while you’re at it

    • Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Mccarthy
      Cancelo Dias Coufal
      Mane KDB Bruno Grealish
      DCL Richa Watkins

      Forster | Bissouma N.Phillips Lamptey

      0.4 itb, 1 FT... any moves that stand out?
      Don’t think I can field 3 defenders if Cancelo is benched this week but ah well

      1. Atwood
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I think I’d hold. Richarlison could be a great differential this week.

        Mane looked knackered the other night though.

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year

          May go Mane to Salah to play it safe... fear a benching

          but is it? i will most likely play martinez but i can see some merit in playing BPF (should have plenty of save points against city attack etc., like lloris in the last game)

      2. fcsaltyballs

        3 months, 3 days ago

        I almost have an identical team with just the one transfer this week. I just feel like having 2 spurs over this fixture run is going to be too much. Cant seem them smashing any of the teams while City's fixtures despite their form are just too good to ignore. As well as Vardy over the next few as well. I'm contemplating taking a hit this week to attack the fixtures and bring in Vardy and KDB for the likes of Kane and Son. Might be a little too much for your liking but I think at least one of those moves is justified. I'd say keep one of Kane or Son if you must but one should be heading out. Wont need that much cover for Spurs over the next little bit

    • SHOWSTOPPERRR
      • 3 Years

      Guys have son kane Bruno Robbo as premium assets..

      A) Kane to vardy free
      B) son lamptey to kdb kilman -4
      C) kane bissou to brew kdb -4 (3-5-2)
      D) kane son to vardy kdb -4
      E) save

      Suggestions needed guys..

      1. Chelsea91

      2. Pops15
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Definitely not B. What's the point in losing Lamptey? He's out for one fixture and it's one you wouldn't want to play him in anyway. I'm looking at D myself. Want to attack those fixtures for City and Vardy. Dont think there is a point in holding two Spurs players over their fixture run. If you feel inclined to hold one then I would say be a little more passive and at least do A and captian Vardy this week.

      1. Salan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Looks not bad, but personally I think it's little bit too risky without Vardy/KDB/Salah this week.

      2. Pops15
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Agree with Salan. You could be in for a long gameweek without the likes of Vardy, KDB or Salah which everyone will captain this week. I would look to move on one of the spurs boys and captain one of the above mentioned big hitters for this week. Whatever works best for your team balance moving forward

      Would you still go with DCL on a WC with Digne out? I’ve never owned DCL so have no value tied up there.

      1. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        yes

      2. Bojam
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Yes! Though Everton's fixtures toughen up quite soon. Still an excellent pick IMO.

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

          id like vardy

      2. Bojam
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        See my post at the bottom of the last page. I have a similar dilemma. I'm leaning towards just Mitchell to Dias this week. And saving the other FT for next week when we have more data on Spurs (are their attacking returns sustainable in tougher fixtures?) versus City / Pool attacking assets.

        1. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Logical this mate. Thinking along the same lines. See my drivel post!

          1. Bojam
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Cool! Feels like I'm in the minority on here but patience has really paid off after a terrible start. So I'm inclined to be a bit cautious and use the few FTs we get wisely rather than just jumping from one good asset to another.

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

              do you have Vardy ?

              1. Bojam
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 4 days ago

                Nah. And not that interested. I mean he's clearly good but I feel like the interest at the moment largely revolves around one fixture vs Fulham. And I don't want to use a FT for a single week "punt". I reckon I'd want Kane back pretty quickly. If I lose him it would likely be to downgrade to say Bamford and hulk the midfield.

    • AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      A) Kane > Vardy (c) - Have Son
      B) Save FT (2 FT next week to bring Salah/Mane in)

      Martinez
      Robbo - Chilwell - Kilman
      KDB - Bruno - Son - Grealish
      Kane - DCL - Bamford

      (Steer; Dallas, Bissouma, Lamptey)

    • Fantasizer
      • 3 Years

      get vardy or man city assets(kdb/sterling)?

      1. Gun gun
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        both?

      2. AK_FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        If I had to choose between, I would go Man City. But I am considering both.

      3. Pops15
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        I'm going for both as well. If I had to choose one then it would have to be City. Even though they are clicking now they have the potential to steam roll teams. Surely things will come together with this favorable fixture run and the likes of Aguero returning

    • Gun gun
      • 4 Years

      C) KDB
      D) Mane

      1. Gun gun

        A

      2. Bad Kompany
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Probably A

    • Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Here are my issues...

      Want Vardy Salah KDB
      Dont want to sell Son or Kane

      Realistically it's get one of Salah or KDB and move on with a couch for hiding behind for the Leicester match.

      I don't want to sell the in form and top scoring two players in the league, I said I don't really see a Leicester mauling of Fulham as I dont see the weaker match up benefitting Fulham, AND, Salah looked poor yesterday AND Liverpool play away v Brighton.

      Having said all that I'm still confused.

      Stupid game!

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Benefitting Vardy and Leicester sorry!!!

      2. Bojam
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I hear you! Facing a similar dilemma. Not interested in Vardy really. Seems like a transfer for just one week and FT;s are too scarce for that to make much sense imo. In your position (and mine), I'd be inclined to hold and wait a week for more data. KDB hasn't looked great or, at least, hasn't hauled since GW2. Salah scares me but I can ride that out for a week or two and assess my options I think.

        1. Salan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Vardy not for just one week...

          1. Bojam
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Fair enough. Not for me though. Just feel there are better options - e.g. Kane (does more, assists as well as goals, on pens, etc.) and cheaper players like Bamford who are racking up the points.

        i think keeping one of son or kane is sufficient, i myself will be keeping kane, as i see salah and kdb more of a threat than vardy, so i suggest son > salah or kdb

      Captain Bruno or KDB?

      Man U have started to look like they did at the end of last season again. Bruno has been great, especially away. Southampton is no pushover but they should leave space behind which could work well for United. Although that will more benefit martial and rashford.

      Man city has struggled in attack but kun could be back. Kdb has also been involved in almost everything for city. Burnley is normally well organized defensively but Pope is out. They also have beaten them 5-0 in their last two home matches

      Martinez
      Chilwell Kilman Mitchell*
      Salah(c) Sterling Jota Fernandes
      Werner DCL Watkins

      Forster - KWP Lamptey Burke

      KWP will most likely have to come in for Mitchell

        Time over I reckon. Or at least, too much of a risk to pin hopes of a start on him.
