        2 weeks? The 4 mil everton Digne replacement

    2. Stoichkov#8

      Better pick this GW:

      a) Son vs Chelsea away
      b) Hamez vs Leeds home

      1. Brehmeren
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Has to be Son

    3. Hulk Smash

      Saiss to Kilman
      Ziyech to KDB -4

      Yay or nay?

    4. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      -4 team, G2G?

      McCarthy
      Chilwell, Cresswell, Justin
      KDB(C), Bruno(v), Jota, Ziyech, Grealish
      Kane, DCL
      (4.0, Saiss, Mitchell, Davis)

      1. BremerHB
        • 4 Years

        Gtg

      2. Atimis

        Just not sure that losing Son over Kane was best idea but looking good otherwise

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Very hard call. No good Kane replacements I liked

            surprised you didnt like look of vardy

              It isn’t enough to fund son >> KDB

      This fantasy football business is making me lose the plot

      1. BeWater

          I've been playing since 07/08 and for so many years it was something I did in the background for a bit of fun. Never looked at my OR or gave a thought to team value. Being able to watch every game really doesn't help!

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Yes!! I’ve watched nearly all of the games so far when I never really used to.
            Watching has helped me this season perform better but the issue is fpl is then always at the forefront of my mind!

        • Groot the Leveller
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I've been watching more because of ff.
          I've become a Leeds fan this year even though I only have Bamford on the bench...

      2. Shark Team

        Sell Jrod to Jota today before the price fall? Or keep him for LEE(H) ?

        1. Gudjohnsen
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Keep

        2. Il Capitano
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Keep

            • 4 Years

            I sold to enable Son > KDB(C)

          • BremerHB
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Keep

          • Groot the Leveller
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            I've sold him for jota. One blank too many after his last game

            1. Groot the Leveller
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              He has great fixtures but seems to be enabling Digne/richarlinson to cross for DCL, rather than assisting or scoring himself

        3. dshv
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Sterling for captain band differential??

          Si or no

          1. Gudjohnsen
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Yes

          2. OBAMA
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            yeah if you have him you have to captain imo

        4. Atimis
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Worth keeping Son?

          Also, would you do Hamez to Sterling?

          1. OBAMA
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            yes keep son, keep Hamez

        5. Dele
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Is Salah, Bruno, KDB, Son, Jota the best midfield 5 right now?

          1. OBAMA
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            on paper probably yes but I think JRod could be a big shout this week

            1. Groot the Leveller
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              He did nothing last week....

          2. OleBall
              1 month, 28 days ago

              On WC:

              A) Masuaku Bissouma Watkins
              B) 3.9 defender Jota Brewster

              1. OleBall
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                      Wich ones? Have dallas and mitchell

                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  best Zaha replacement

                  A) Jota (i already own mane)
                  B) Torres (city cover)
                  C) Rodriguez (thinking could be a interesting punt since on set pieces now Digne out)
                  D) Other ... who?

                  1. Werner Bros
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    What's the news on Zaha? I'm currently just benching as 0FT. Will he be back next week?

                    1. OBAMA
                      • 6 Years
                      1 month, 28 days ago

                      yeah but he's been meh anyway so happy to get rid

                      1. Werner Bros
                        • 5 Years
                        1 month, 28 days ago

                        Fair point. I'm just not sure it's worth the hit right now, he'll be in my team no later than GW13 though for sure!

                      2. Werner Bros
                        • 5 Years
                        1 month, 28 days ago

                        To actually answer your question A but I'd be worried if he keeps getting the same minutes with Salah back, C could also be good. Think B is too rotation prone. Do you have Grealish?

                  2. fn.jota
                      1 month, 28 days ago

                      A for me with rotation concerne

                    Bottomed

                    Which one to fund Son > KDB (C)? Would be for -4 unfortunately

                    A) Ziyech > Jota
                    B) Kane > Vardy
                    C) Cresswell > Coufal

                    Whilst B is by far the most popular move on here, I’m very wary of writing off both Kane and Son just because their fixtures stiffen up - feel like keeping 1 until their form stops makes sense. I don’t have Salah/ Mané so the Jota option is pretty tempting until I get Salah in GW12. Option C is purely a funding move only.

                    1FT 2.3itb
                    Martinez
                    Robbo, Chilwell, Cresswell
                    Bruno, Son, Ziyech, Grealish
                    Kane, DCL, Bamford
                    (Forster) (KWP, Stephens, Branthwaite)

                    1. RAFA THE GAFFA

                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 28 days ago

                      I did A with Jrod as I couldn’t afford B. B for you I think but it’s very very hard

                      1. Don Kloppeone
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 3 Years
                        1 month, 28 days ago

                        I’m only 0.1 short of straight Son > KDB for free. Very frustrating!

                        Can’t help thinking that with the number of people bringing in Vardy for Kane that it will be disastrous but maybe I’m overthinking!

                          1 month, 28 days ago

                          I do like Kane also. Hard decisions

                      1 month, 28 days ago

                      Use robbo to fund ziyech to kdb?
                      Son is a season keeper for me.

                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 3 Years
                        1 month, 28 days ago

                        You’d keep both Kane and Son for this run? Robbo has been immense though... hmmm

                        V tough!

                    Maguire sounds like a great pick reading this article.

                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    In order to afford Werner to Vardy I would have to downgrade Chillwell or Cresswell. Either of those out for a -4 worth it?

                    1. Free Hat
                      • 1 Year
                      1 month, 28 days ago

                      I wouldnt want to drop either of those 3. Specially not for a hit.

                    Play watkins or soucek?

                      1 month, 28 days ago

                      Watkins

                      • 2 Years
                      1 month, 28 days ago

                      Been mulling over this all week long! Had soucek in, but decided to bench now for Watkins who's got pens and higher ceiling. It's tough if you also got grealish & west H defender (like me!). Hoping loss of Barkley don't hurt em

                  7. Shark Team
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    Bench Coufal or Kilman?
                    keeping in mind that Barkley is out for Villa but Arsenal can't score

                    1. Kay317
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      1 month, 28 days ago

                      Coufal has more attacking threat so I'd play him.

                    A) Saiss to Konsa
                    B) Kane to Vardy
                    C) Kane, Saiss and Podence to Vardy, Konsa and Jota (-8)
                    D) Suggestions?

                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    A) Reguilon, Son, Kane to Coufal, Vardy and Salah.

                    B) Kane and Riedewald to Salah and Brewster.

                    Or KDB instead of Salah in either.

                    Feels wrong to ditch son and Kane but concerned about vardy, Salah and KDB running riot. Any advice appreciated.

                    Does Brewster start against West Brom? The fixtures doesn't get much better for hkm so wondering if to just play him

                      Big question mark. But even if he starts, I dont have much hope.
                      (he s in my starting 11 this gw)

                    Will the players playing in Europe this week be covid tested again before the weekend matches?

                    Cheers

                      I'd say so. Think they're getting tested very regularly especially when they're travelling.

                        Ok but we probably won't hear anything before deadline tomorrow I would imagine?

                          Doubt it

                    is anyone taking a hit to get in either KDB or Vardy (or both). If you are please explain why

                      1 month, 28 days ago

                      assuming you're taking out kane or son to allow this

                    2. Kay317
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      Thinking about it. But more likely Salah and vardy in. Can see them retuning more over the next few weeks and can get kane and or son back when their fixtures turn. But equally can't quite bring myself to pull the trigger - kane and son are both on great form. Are they fixture proof?

                      I thought long and hard, decided not to do a -4 for kdb. I've done too many hits this year, so was now chilled.
                      I was happy and sorted. Zen like

                      Then I listened to the scoutcast, and did ziyech -> kdb for a -4 immediately afterwards.

                    Think I’m going to roll the FT this week. Thoughts?

                    Martinez
                    KWP - Coufal - Chilwell
                    Bruno - Son - Grealish - Ziyech
                    Kane - Vardy - DCL

                    (Steer - Mitchell - Stephens - Lamptey)

                      • 6 Years
                      1 month, 28 days ago

                      seems good just lack of city

                      1. BremerHB
                        • 4 Years
                        1 month, 28 days ago

                        I don’t know why but I’m not too concerned. If they look to pick up form against Burnley I’ll use the 2 FTs to bring in cover.

                        Son & Kane have been in much better form recently than any City attackers.

                        1. Groot the Leveller

                          I too was happy with no city.
                          Stay strong and believe in your decision.

                          I crumbled yesterday, kept son but sacrificed ziyech.

                          I think I may regret it as I really like him, but I like son more

                    Guys, any help appreciated...what would you do with this team?

                    1 FT
                    £3.9M ITB

                    McCarthy
                    Ayling Robbo Chilwell
                    Zaha* Son Fernandes Grealish
                    DCL Adams Werner

                    Steer Kilman Mitchell* Bissouma

                    Current thinking is...

                    A) Mitchell + Son -> KDB (C) + Dias / Cancelo (-4) (bench Zaha and wait that he's available next GW against WBA (A) as still not sure about Jota

                    Play 4-3-3

                    B) Zaha -> Jota (with Fernandes (C) still not sure about this option as want to jump asap in City assets and i'm not sure how nailed is Jota)

                    Play 3-4-3

                    C) Zaha + Werner -> KDB (C) + Antonio / Bamford (-4) (would leave me with no City defender but potentially would give me enough in the bank to go from Ayling to TAA as soon as he's available)

                    Play 3-4-3

                    Cheers

                    Play one

                    Targett ( have Bowen, and Martinez)
                    Mitchell

                    1. BremerHB

                      Targett. Mitchell looks to have lost his spot for the moment.

                    Offloading Zaha to a Man City Mid, only £7.9m available in doing so.

                    A) Torres
                    B) Foden

                    Anyone think Torres will come good?
