    Mane to Salah for free? I fear a Mane rest and have a rubbish bench.

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      ya

    2. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      Sure, if it's for free! It's a good move long term imo.

    3. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      Yes

    4. Pops15
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Depends on the rest of your squad. I think Mane was unlucky last week not to have a huge haul. If he did you would be content with him for his coming gameweek. I would look to save or push to move some spurs assets out for the likes of KDB or Vardy instead of making the sideways transfer this week.

    Current line up
    McCarthy
    Dallas Zouma Justin Cresswell
    Son Bruno Jrod
    Kane Watkins Vardy

    Got zaha on my bench 0FT and £0.5m ITB

    Do I stick or take a -4 for Jota and switch him in for Dallas in starting line up?

    1. niaz1982

      Chasing mini league top spot 60 points ahead

      1. WE GO FOR IT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

        60 points ahead at this stage is nothing. You should do what would get you the most points.
        I would take the hit. Jota is a better options. Gives you cash for future GWs as well.

    2. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      not worth the -4 imo...can do it next week

    3. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Do it

  4. FantasyHero

    ahhhhhh what to do

    1. jimmy to Vardy
    2. Jimmy, Kane to Vardy Jesus -4
    3. Jimmy, Kane, Grealish to Vardy Watkins KDB -8

    I know the -8 but does 3 set me up better for future gw points or nah?

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      How does Grealish out set you up for future GWs?
      Also, anything with a hit to remove the best player in FPL this season is a huge no for me!

        lol just temptation to get KDB i guess. but fair point

          I know. Even I am. But I will probably hold this week. I can live with missing out on one haul.

      I did a zaha+kane > KDB+Bamford for -4.
      I wanted to cap KDB and was out of choice with zaha out and kane fixtures getting tough. Still have son for spurs cover.

  6. dshv
    • 3 Years

    Yea i know KDB is the obvious captain pick

    But i have Sterling.. can i give him a armband

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Could be a great differential if he explodes.

    2. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      kdb not the obv captain pick

    Hi guys

    What do you think I should do with this lot?

    Martinez McCarthy
    Robertson Konsa Justin Mitchell Dunne
    Fornals Grealish Son Fernandes Romeu
    Jimenez Kane DCL

    2.4m in the bank.

    Most obvious move to me is Jimenez out for Vardy. Any other tips? Thanks!

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Couple of quick questions..

    1) Who combo would you prefer for next few gw's...Lamptey/Son or Dias/Barnes?..lewis would play for lamptey this gw. Is barnes nailed?

    2) Is Lewis the best 4.3m defender? What about the everton guy would you replace Digne?

          Not concerned by no city/ spurs attack?

          1. Houldsworth Hatter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            City are wait and see with a view to bringing one in next week - no form. Spurs I’ve offloaded over last couple of weeks as I really wanted Vardy as captain this week. Son went the previous week. I’ll monitor though as I want my captain to fire. Guess I’m upside chasing and can’t have them all!

    2. Congressman
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      Looks very strong. I'm guessing you're a Chelsea fan.

  12. Disturbed

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Soucek probably. Klich on pens so not too bad and Neto on form recently given the price bracket.

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        Cheers, was leaning towards soucek

  13. C_Manan

    How to get Salah back?
    A) Downgrade Robbo to 4.5 DEF, Salah in for Ziyech
    B) Sell KDB
    C) Downgrade Kane, already have Son

    1. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      D?

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      D

    3. Pops15
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Out of those 3 choices I would say C. If you have double spurs then one is plenty for this run. And I wouldn't want to lose the likes of KDB with their fixture run or even Robbo who I'm sure will come good over the coming fixtures as well. Liverpool look a little more stable in the back with Milner and the Matip + Fabinho paring is quite decent.

  14. Off The Post
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 10 days ago

    A. Kane to Vardy
    B. Son to Sterling
    C. Targett to Cancelo
    D. Save

    Leaning towards boring D but a KDB Sterling double up might be fun for a couple fixtures.

  21. Feedtheyak
    • 11 Years

    Wildcard finalised I think....

    McCarthy
    Robbo Diaz Chilwell
    Barnes KDB Salah Jota
    Vardy Watkins Bamford
    (Forster Soucek Lewis Nkounkou)

    Only thing I'm mulling over is keeping Son (over the Barnes punt!) which would mean downgrading Robbo to Dallas.

    Any opinions welcome!

    1. Mintu
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      To me it make more sense to keep son. Because son is basically counter attack player and upcoming game will suit his style.Liverpool lost few key player in defence and Robertson may concentrate more in defensive work and also less potentiality of clean sheet.on other hand Dallas upcoming fixture are too good and he also play out of position right now.

      You cannot bench any of those three, sorry. Just cant.

      Why the F did you put yourself in such a tough position? Bc you wanted the new exciting toy Jota, right? So you gotta start him right or why get him?

      Between Grealish and Ziyech... pffff, man. Think Id bench Grealish but it’s a crazy thing to say.

      I'd wait and Son is good on counter against tough teams

    Does Cancelo look like a good bet for the next five fixtures? My concern is about his minutes.

      Lots on here keep saying he'll be rotated, yet he keeps starting.

      Mendy starting in CL is probably a good omen.
