    is KDB to Salah for free a good move?

      Captain Salah?

      What?! Sell kdb this week?

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

      No way
      Kdb has great fixtures starting this weekend

    4. Mile Plankton
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Wow.
      We've come to this.

    5. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      You're the first I've seen to consider selling KDB!

    6. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Now that’s a new one!!!

    7. Zilla
      • 3 Years

      Wait, what?

    8. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      could be

      1. HellasLEAF
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        Salah could outscore KDB so on a free maybe. but hard to justify

  2. No Professionals
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 6 hours ago

    Any circa 4m defenders likely to play this weekend?

    1. Mile Plankton
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Hardly. I need one at 4.2 but it seems there isn't such.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        Salisu in the future could be an option at 4.2.

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Everton's N'Kounkou (4.0m I believe, please check) is expected on here to replace Digne at LWB as that is what happened a few GW's ago when Digne was suspended.

      1. Bennerman
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        I've just been looking at this to decide whether I can bring Nkounkou in (I need a cheap deal).

        He came in fir Digne when he was suspended three games back, but has not even been in the squad the two games since.

        So hard to call where he is in the pecking order. He is only young and very inexperienced. He played for their U23s the week after he played in the first team instead of Digne, for example - sent straight back down to Acdemy football while the first team were off to play Man United.

        But I've come to the (optimistic and convenient) conclusion that his left-footedness means Ancelotti will elevate him to at least the squad, quite possibly starting XI, while Digne is out.

        Hence, I'm buying him. Tonight, as I have a turd about to fall.

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          they could be inclined to go with Delph at LB or a 3ATB type setup.

          1. Bennerman
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 6 hours ago

            That is one possibility, yeah. A few options.

            The big fear is that Ancelotti played him and then dumped him straight into kids team, so maybe he really didn't like what he saw and decided he's not ready.

            On the other hand, with defensive bodies returning, perhaps he just couldn't find room for him on the bench. But now with the need for a natural left-sider, he could come back.

            Wish I could wait for press conference tomorrow but need to do it now to save an annoying -1.

    3. xHaTr

      Nkoundou for everton

    4. Noah’s Ark
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Neco Williams

  3. JollyGoodYellows
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 6 hours ago

    Any thoughts here? 1FT and 1.8itb

    Mccarthy (Button)
    Zouma Holding Justin (Konsa Mitchell)
    Bruno JRod Son Grealish (Bissouma)
    DCL Werner Kane

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Nice side. As you know, only thing missing is lack of City. Would require a hit as I wouldn't ditch Bruno to get KDB this week. Kane to Vardy is an option if you're hapyp to go with just one Spurs asset.

      Even saving a FT still leaves you with a strong side.

      1. JollyGoodYellows
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        Cheers. You echo my thoughts exactly! It's between saving a FT or doing Kane/Werner > Vardy.

  4. JURGENAUT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 6 hours ago

    Saiss, Zaha, Son > Targett, Jota, KDB (C) for (-8)?

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      -8 is big but given you are taking out 2 non playing players and these days we need decent bench, I say do it. Will pay out over next few gws for sure

    2. OBAMA
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      pull the trigger. I'd be tempted to keep son if you can and just do -4

  5. FantasyHero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 6 hours ago

    Some help here gents.

    Grealish kane jimmy -> kdb vardy Watkins for -8
    Given Watkins is on penalties I think he is worth it.
    I dont like hits at all but There is just no other way I can get kdb in my team as I wanna keep fernandes and son
    I would prefer getting jesus/aguero so i can do it for -4 for 2 gws but who knows which one starts.
    Team:
    Martinez steer
    Lamptey Mitchell Dallas coufal chilwell
    Grealish* son fernandes hamez bissouma
    Kane* jimmy* DCL

    Or I can simply do just jimmy to vardy and call it a day lol.

    1. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      One does not simply make a transfer.

      Not sure why you need to do it all this week though. Maybe just the simple transfer and captain Vardy/DCL.

      1. FantasyHero
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        Haha true

        So you ate saying for gw 10 pts,
        Grealish + Kane > kdb + Watkins -8?

        1. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          Seems sideways for me. Grealish is better than Watkins and KDB is better than Kane, but you're sacrificing 8 points.

          Not sure how much money you have, but maybe you can sell Jimmy for Bammy and Sonny for Kevvy. Both upgrades

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

            Well I need vardy. I feel he would do well next few gws
            And I dont want to sell son.
            Grealish is better than Watkins but since Watkins has penalties it might just be even.

            Oh well think I can push for a week. Will just do jimmy to vardy this week and re-consider plans next week. I just will be hiding for city game this gw.

    Have Bale in draft league. Didn’t follow the spurs game tonight but see he didn’t get any goals or assists and assume will be on bench again at weekend. Will probs just bench him and wait for him to play in easy games.

    Poor signing so far.

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      He didn’t look great mate, sorry!

    2. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Never rated him as a signing. Just throwing better players into a team doesn’t necessarily make a team better.

  7. Krafty Werks

    3 months, 6 hours ago

    Not FPL but i know a lot of the community are playing Fanteam this season. Am doing 'ok' in about 3.3k of 25k players right now but lots of issues and have decided now is the time for me to wildcard. How does this look and is there anything standing out to you like a sore thumb that you would change? Thanks :

    Meslier / Martinez
    Chilwell / Dias / Riedewald / Masuaku / Kilman
    Salah / KDB / Fernandes / Grealish / Soucek
    DCL / Jota / Antonio

    0ITB.

  8. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 6 hours ago

    Grealish or Jota for Zaha?

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Jota if you have Watkins
      Grealish if you have salah

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        Don't have Watkins. And have Salah
        Cheers.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Grealish. Still the best glue midfield pick imo. You can keep him and not think about him for 10 weeks easily.

    Thoughts on Rashford to KDB for -4? 2.3 itb, 1FT
    Yes or no?

    Martinez
    Chilwell | Coufal I Konsa
    Bruno | Son | Rashford | Grealish I Jota
    Kane | DCL |

    Forster I Brewster I Dallas I Lamptey*

      Evening all — thoughts much appreciated for this sorry lot 🙂

      A) TAA Foden > 4.4 (Kilman) KDB, -4

      B) TAA Son > Dias Salah, -4 (funds for Bruno > KDB next wk)

      C) something else — 1FT 2.2 ITB

      Martinez
      TAA* Chilwell James
      Bruno Son Ziyech Foden
      Kane DCL Watkins

      (Steer Lamptey* Mitchell Burke)

        A looks good!

    • OBAMA
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Best captain out of options

      A) Mane
      B) Bruno
      C) DCL

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        I like B or C

      2. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        B,C,A for me.

        Silly question, but is there any chance Mane gets a rest and Klopp goes with MS, RF, DJ as his front three?

        1. OBAMA
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          I'd never count it out. I'm really tempted with Bruno as well

        Probably can’t get rid of Son having Hamez in my team?
        I mean, Hamez out should be the priority?

        1. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          I'd say so. You'd want to get rid off the man out of form rather than the man in form.

        Zaha —> Mahrez (free)
        Or
        Zaha and Chilwell —> KDB and Fuchs (-4)

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          I mentioned the a Mahrez move could be game changer IF he plays at his best

          1. Ajay04
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 6 hours ago

            I’m torn with Mahrez or Foden but if I did the -4 I’d captain KDB

            1. g40steve
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years

        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        Can’t decide how to spend 6.8ITB, thoughts please?

        A) Soucek to KdB
        B) Brewster to Vardy

        And if B, would you do Bruno to KdB for a -4?

        It’s tough because A allows an easier route to Salah in the near future.

        Thanks

        1. Ajay04
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          Honestly I’d toss a coin between those 2 transfers and take the decision out your hands this week

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 6 hours ago

            It’s been doing my head in all week, so tough.
            I envy those with both

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

          For your additional question on B, no.

          A feels better because KDB is still a decent captain choice, and for next week too.

      9. Labile
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        Which is a better “plan”?

        Captain Vardy GW 11 vs Sheffield

        GW 10- Burke ➡️ Jota (bench Bowen vs AVL)
        GW 12- DCL,Grealish,Bowen ➡️ Salah Soucek Davis

        or

        Captain Sterling GW 11 vs Fulham

        GW 10- Son ➡️ Sterling ( have Kane)
        GW 12- Sterling, DCL,Bowen ➡️ Salah Jota Wilson/Bamford

        1. FantasyHero
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          2nd scenario is better
          But
          Selling dcl can backfire

      10. Blush Response
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 6 hours ago

        I've always felt this was one of the better of the FFS articles.

        Too many options. Still have 1st WC and bad rank so willing to take risks in next few...

        McCarthy
        Chilwell -- Justin -- TAA **
        Fernandes -- Son -- Grealish -- Soucek
        DCL -- Kane -- Wilson

        4.0 -- Targett -- Bissouma -- Mitchell [1ft + 2.9m ITB]

        A) TAA + Grealish --> Cancelo + KDB (c) for (-4)
        B) TAA + Kane --> Cancelo + Vardy (c) for (-4)
        C) TAA + Wilson --> Cancelo + Vardy (c) for (-4)
        D) Kane + Bissouma --> Bamford + KDB (C) for (-4)
        E) Just TAA --> Cancelo / Kane --> Vardy / Son --> KDB (FT)

          B if you must
          But I would consider saving FT.

            Really, and captain Bruno?

              Why not Hames or DCL.
              Hames was good in the first half against Fulham. He ran out of gas in the second, but I think he's defo a captain material for this week.

        4.2 itb, 1 FT
        Mid: Grealish, Bruno, Son, Zaha, Hendrick

        Zaha -> ? (got 11,3)

        a) Hames
        b) Jota
        c) Salah (& Saiss -> 4,2) minus 4
        d) KDB (& Saiss -> 4,8) minus 4

        Huge benching dilemma, on Grealish right now. Partly because Barkley is missing partly because I own Cresswell.

        Ziyech Rashford Son Grealish KDB
        Bamford DCL Werner

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          However feel like Che Spurs will be low scoring and leaning on one of the 3.

          Some headache you put yourself into. No idea tbh

        3. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          Spread the risk and bench Ziyech

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 6 hours ago

            If not then Bamford

        4. Mile Plankton
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          I think Grealish was out of gas in the last GW. Previously he played in 3 matches for England, and he looked tired in second half against Brighton.
          I think he'll be well rested for this weekend. However, WHU are pretty decent defensively, so he might not be a bad benching option out of those.
          Wouldn't bench Bamford against poor Everton defence.

        Would you start Mitchell or Ayling. If I started Mitchell I would have ayling first sub anyway. Is there any chance he starts?

        1. Mile Plankton
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 6 hours ago

          Don't think so. PVA is the best CP player when Zaha is not there.

          I'll say this -8 is rarely ever worth it..

          At least not if you care about your mini leagues.

            Yeah I know, it's tough and I don't like hits at all but my team suddenly looks weak and no stand out captaincy option either apart from maybe Fernandes. What would you do in my situation? Would be useful to get insight.

        Torn on DCL, Salah or Kane C

        Currently on DCL but Salah starting to creep in as possibility..

        Opinions welcome.

          Between Salah and DCL for me. Probs dcl just for me!

        Hows the team look? 0.2 Mill in the bank. 0 FT.

        Martinez
        Reguillon Chilwell Coufal
        Fernandes Son Ziyech Grealish
        DCL Vardy(c) Kane

        would you bring in Bruno or KDB for a -4?
        Would lose Hames Rodriguez

        Already have Salah and Son

        I transferred in J Rodriguez one day before he got injured.

        Enjoy the points, folks.
