    Which option?
    A) Werner > Vardy ( C )
    B) Struijk > Targett
    C) Save FT,

    McCarthy
    Justin / Chilwell / Coufal
    Bruno / Grealish / Rashford / Ziyech
    Werner / Kane / DCL

    Steer, Soucek, Struijk, Mitchell

      Who is captain if saving?

      1. Sturridge Wars
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 3 hours ago

        Bruno

        1. Sturridge Wars
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 3 hours ago

          Or DCL. But leaning towards Bruno

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

            It's close, Werner could easily have scored a hatty.

          2. SmasherLagru

            Save

    2. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      A

    Salah price locked?
    When it will be unlocked what was the rule

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

      Don't think FPL Stats even knows.

    2. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      The FPL kids do whatever they want. There is no hard and fixed rule

    3. El Fenomeno R9
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Then i need to get Salah after deadline...if he go up must take hit.

      Not wise with so many games to be played but will risk it.

  3. Camino Aleatorio

    Why is it ok to lose 0.3 on Kane to get Vardy?

    (1) cause Vardy will go up 0.2 or 0.3 in the next few weeks

    (2) kane might lose 0.1

    It’s a wash on the money and the chances of Vardy hauling are better than kane

    I’m not saying the Vardy will absolutely out point Kane. It’s just easier to see Vardy roll Fulham than Kane roll Chelsea. Plus the captain effect. You can C on Vardy but not Kane so double the points

    Bad logic, why?

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

      There are many captains that could outscore Vardy.

    2. El Fenomeno R9
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Odds favor Vardy but its 2 transfers to get Kane back,other (C) options too KDB/Salah.

      Interesting too see how it goes from here,template is broken.
      I probably keep Son + Kane and go for Sterling(C),others going KDB,Vardy etc

    3. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years

      Points over £.

      Depends what price was paid for Kane, not necessarily £0.3 loss.

      Vardy next 4 fixtures including Everton who concede 2 goals a game, looks more favourable than Kane's fixtures.

      Likely Vardy will increase & Kane decrease with transfers & points.

      Factor in Captain doubling the points it looks worth it.

      Sometimes you do lose money transferring a player out & them back in. However you also make money on other players. If you don't have urgent issues elsewhere to address, banking the profit from Kane, investing in Vardy who will likely also result in profit too but Kane back at a lower price means it's actual money as opposed to team value.

      This is obviously all speculation & could backfire, but that's the game trying to predict what is most likely to happen & backing your judgement.

      Probably not, do you have Martinez?

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

      No

      1. SmasherLagru

        No i dont have Martinez

  6. chaser123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 3 hours ago

    1) Jimenez to Vardy
    2) Jimenez to Watkins & Grealish to KDB
    3) Neither

    1. chaser123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      As it stands:

      McCarthy
      Chilwell Justin Konsa
      Salah Bruno JRod Grealish Soucek
      Kane Jimenez

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      1 out of those. Hard to lose Grealish.

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 hours ago

        Could be JRod instead?

      2. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 hours ago

        Had been thinking Grealish to avoid the Villa triple up!

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

          Grealish is their best option though

    3. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1

      1

    McCarthy
    Chilwell, Targett, Cancelo
    KDB, Grealish, Bruno, Ziyech
    DCL, Vardy(c), Watkins

    Is Fofana the best option from Lei defence is ai am looking for a nailed defender from Lei for a few weeks and 5.0 or less?

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

      If you're looking long term and want a nailed defender starting this week then yes

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Cheers.

  9. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years

    Who scores more over the next 2 in your opinion? (Ignore price difference)

    A) Salah
    B) Bruno

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

      A

    Repost.

    Hey guys, really can't decide if I should stick with this team or take a -4 to bring in one of Vardy/KDB/Salah. With this team will have to either captain Bruno or DCL.

    Martinez 4.0
    Lamptey PVA Mitchell Robbo Chilwell
    Grealish Son Bruno Jota 4.5
    Kane DCL Bamford

    3.6 ITB. No FT left. What do you suggest?

    Cheers

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

      Bruno to KDB. Live a little

  11. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 3 hours ago

    Bruno to KDB for free?

    Fortune favours the brave

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

      I'm probably doing Bruno to Salah fwiw.. but only because I'm gonna do that move in GW12 anyway

      Not sure about this but if you think you'd captain KDB then maybe

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

        Similar thinking.. because I'm gonna do that move in GW11 anyway. And maybe to Salah later in 12.

        Vardy C though

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Nah, find other route

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

        🙁

    3. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Yes. Live a little

  12. NoName
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 3 hours ago

    Have no City or Liverpool. Rashford to?

    A) Salah
    B) KDB

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

      B

      1. NoName

    Hi guys! 3.8m ITB 1FT

    Nyland-McCarthy
    Mitchel-Chilwell-Justin-Cancelo-Cresswell
    Grealish-Bissouma-Salah-Zaha*-Son
    Mitrovic-Adams-Werner

    A) Zaha > Bruno
    B) Son > KDB
    C) Zaha > Jota + ?
    C) A/B + Mitrovic > Watkins (-4)
    D) Other suggestions?

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years

      A

    2. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Zaha to KDB. Get the $

  14. mrrahrah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 3 hours ago

    Ok I'm settled on KDB coming in for this week. Just grateful for thoughts on whether to take out Ziyech or Son to make that transfer. I have Kane as well.

    Thanks all

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

      Ziyech imo but not ideal

    2. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Z

    3. Help Me!
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Ziyech

  15. Chandler Bing
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 3 hours ago

    Safe to say that Wilson will start this weekend now that he's been declared fit?

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

      Yes

  16. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 3 hours ago

    Remember when everyone used to say : 'When in doubt captain Salah'...

    People didn't even worry about captaining him in difficult fixtures
    but now he has a fixture with serious haul potential and he is being overlooked as a captaincy option by most, am I missing something?

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

      Still good c option this week. Many are with Vardy KDB and Bruno though

    2. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      ...Bri(a) was the reason everyone kept him last week...so that they could (c) him...

      strange place this.

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

        Herd mentality

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      I guess majority here got rid of him last week

    4. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Bookies love him and he will be in the top-3 most captained.

    5. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      He's had Covid, which is why people are wary. Rightly so, in my opinion. I'm always keen to captain Salah but won't this week.

    6. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 hours ago

      He's still a good pick if you have him. However, most have got Vardy, KdB and Bruno this week, some even for a hit. So, it makes sense for them to captain them.

  17. TheDragon
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 3 hours ago

    Really don’t know which way to go. 1 FT 2.1 ITB

    Martinez
    Robertson, Chilwell, KWP
    Fernandes, Grealish, Son, Zaha*
    DCL, Kane, Maupay
    4.0| Bissouma, Lamptey*, Mitcgell*

    Which of these moves or Combination of moves for -4, -8 etc is best?

    A) Zaha -> Ziyech or Rodriguez
    B) Fernandes -> Salah
    C) Son -> KDB
    D) Kane -> Vardy
    E) Maupay -> Bamford

    A, D and E are ones I’m most considering

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      D

  18. Holmes
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 3 hours ago

    Wonder when I will get a chance to add Bamford...

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      On another note, getting Vardy and De Bruyne this week means I am stuck with Rodriguez for Burnley game as well, sigh...

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

        Could be a blessing in disguise

  19. Sanchit
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 3 hours ago

    Best replacement for Digne? Have Chilwell and Robertson as my other 2 defenders

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

      Masuaku

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Man City boys are the obvious ones. or you can try Bellerin or van aanholt

    3. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Cancelo although I must say that is lot of money in defence.

      1. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 3 hours ago

        Turning out pretty well so far xD

  20. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 3 hours 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.

    Also have triple Villa if it matters..

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Worth a shot, both will probably concede

    2. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 hours ago

      I would, yeah!

    3. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 hours ago

      coufal better option.
      Pool had one good defensive game and then CL you saw what happened. not worth it.

  21. Akshatjazz
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 3 hours ago

    James Rodriguez > KDB
    Michael / kilman > cancelo / Dias
    For -4 hit
    Who to take out frm Def ? And who to add

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

      I'm assuming Michael is Mitchell? I'd get Dias for safety probably

      1. Akshatjazz
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 3 hours ago

        So who do you want me to take out ?

        I have Robbo, chiwell, Dallas, Mitchell, kilman

  22. Nice to Finally Michu
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 3 hours ago

    Finding this one tricky

    A) Adams + KdB(C)
    B) Aguero(C) + Bowen

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

      A

      1. Nice to Finally Michu
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 3 hours ago

        Cheers, what swings it for you?

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 3 hours ago

          Bowen is meh

          1. Nice to Finally Michu
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 3 hours ago

            Fair enough that

    2. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 hours ago

      A

      Aguero might nto even start.

    3. Pops15
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Has to be A with the uncertainty of Aguero starting. Plus Adam's been great all season and I'm just not a fan of Bowen. Westham are toothless without Antonio

  23. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    So who gets Digne spot while he is out?

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 hours ago

      Nkounkou most likely and he is only 4 mil ?

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 3 hours ago

        yep but its not like they are keeping CSs :/

        1. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 3 hours ago

          For sure but a play 4.0 all the same.
          Any idea if he is decent from an attacking perspective ?

          1. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 3 hours ago

            Not sure. Heard his name couple of times during preseason games I guess.

            Apparently he is a "wonderkid" 😮

            1. Albrightondknight
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 2 hours ago

              Yeah hard to tell as he just turned 20 not much to go on. Thanks again.

    Morning dzzz, have 1ft and 4m itb. Planning to do Saiss out with the ft but anything worth a hit?

    Martinez
    Chilwell James Saiss -- Lamptey Mitchell
    Bruno(c) Grealish Son Barnes
    Kane Watkins DCL

    A) Saiss > Dias and leave 3.6m itb
    B) Saiss + Barnes >> Lewis + KDB
    C) Saiss + Son >> Bellerin + KDB + 1.4m for bruno > salah in gw12

    With C, i will effectively take out Son (this gw) and Bruno (in gw12) for Kdb + salah.

    With B, I can decide in gw12 which two of Bruno, Kane and Son to take out but means

  25. BenDavies
    • 8 Years

    Anyone reckon Mitchell will start against Newcastle?

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      i think its possible

  26. C_G
    • 5 Years

      I've gone with Kane + Son to Vardy and KDB. I just feel like the fixture swings are too good to ignore. I cant see Spurs putting more then a goal or past any of their next 6 or so opponents while City and the likes of Vardy of the potential to do some damage over that time. I prefer the upside of attacking the point potential rather then sitting on double spurs and hoping they can pull off some narrow wins over tougher opposition

    Grealish or Ziyech? Need to get rid of one to bring in Salah.

      grealish
      ziyech has 2 good weeks and 1 bad. i would keep him

      I have both as well and if I had to get rid of one it would be Zyiech. I think they are both great assets but I see much more goal threat from Grealish. Zyiech has a killer pass but I can see him being integral to the link up and assisting the assister quite often. And I dont see much goal threat from him. He likes to sit a little deeper and swing balls in rather then make the runs in behind the defence

    Pick one to replace TAA
    1. Cancelo/Dias
    2. Maguire
    3. Robertson (would mean I can't bring back Salah in the mid term)
