      Zaha. Grealish should be alright over the next block of fixtures

      1. Rupert The Horse

        He’s selling Zaha

    Kane -----> ______ ???

    A) Vardy
    B) KDB (-4)

    1. Must.Go.Faster.
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Bale or Moura should play to the right of Kane.

        That said, A

      who to lose for vardy, werner or kane? thanks.

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years

        Werner

      2. Must.Go.Faster.
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Not Kane.

          That said, Werner

        • mash
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I have the same dilemma! At present, I'll be doing Werner to Vardy, but it's a very close one between the two.

        • Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          thanks guys. was set on werner so will go for it. had him since gw1 and time to say bye bye

        Sterling - 4.7% ownership
        KDB - 18%

        The attraction of a differential.............

        1. BENOIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Pretty low for KDB still

        2. Must.Go.Faster.
            1 month, 28 days ago

            The attraction of an extra couple of periods, imo
            That said, ....................

          Just brought in Nkounkou for Branthwaite,

          Which defender to bench?

          A. Dallas (eve)
          B. Lewis (cpl)
          C. Nkounkou (LEE)

          1. George James
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Dallas

          2. saint4life
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Lewis.

            Maybe Dallas if you have DCL though as it’s close

            1. Wılly
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              DCL and Bamford, unfortunately 🙂

          Dallas & bissouma > Williams & foden -4?

          Soucek first bench

          1. George James
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            No way

              No city players without...

              Can’t get kdb without moving on mane, Vardy, Kane or bruno

        5. Fletch365

          Any changes here?
          Was considering Werner > Vardy (-4)

          McCarthy
          Chilwell-Justin-Bellerin
          Bruno-Son-Salah-Grealish
          Werner-DCL-Bamford

          Nyland-Mitchell-Taylor-Biss

          1. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 28 days ago

            unless captaining Vardy I would save.
            he'd have to score 2 more goals than Werner to be worth it essentially

            1. Geriatric Unathletic
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Not necessarily so. 1 more goal covers it and would probably guarantee max bonus in that case too. a -4 for Vardy is not a bad option.................And I have done it too:).

        6. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Martinez
          Robbo, Chilly, Justin
          Bruno, Ziyech, Jota, Grealish
          Werner, DCL

          Need to play one of Mitro or Saint-Maximim (or Targett, KWP)

          Thoughts?

          Also can do Ziyech > KDB (4.1 itb) for a -4...leaning yes to avoid triple Chelsea and also to captain KDB.

        7. mash
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          McCarthy
          Chilwell Justin KWP
          Fernandes Son Grealish Podence
          Kane Werner DCL

          Steer Bissouma Davies Taylor

          1FT, £2.2m in the bank

          What do you think is best out of these options?

          A) Werner to Vardy
          B) Kane to Vardy
          C) Fernandes to KDB
          D) Podence to Jota

          0.1 short of Son to KDB unfortunately!

          A is what I'll do at the moment, though it makes things difficult for getting Salah back or City attackers in, as I'd like. I do still have WC available, but want to save it for the xmas fixtures if possible.

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

          Jota will probably play as a ST in a 4-2-3-1 formation vs Brighton.
          Jump on to get him(kneejerking?) or wait for my boy Rodriguez to reward me?

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            wait james has a nice fixture

            1. RogDog_jimmy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 28 days ago

              he's been real out of sorts lately though. someone was talking about Leeds likely man-marking him out of the game.
              I made this exact move so i'm biased into hoping it works

              1. RogDog_jimmy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 28 days ago

                should say the downgrade will facilitate getting KDB for Ziyech too.

        9. Tross007
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Who to ditch for KDB:

          A) Son
          B) Mane

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            a

          2. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            B and bring Salah in gw12 perhaps

          3. Must.Go.Faster.
              1 month, 28 days ago

              I want Mane’s points all for myself.

              That said, not A

          4. George James
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Best option

            A) Werner / Vardy / Son / Reece James

            B) Vardy / Kane / Son / Soucek -4

            C) Vardy / Kane / Jota / Reece James -4

          5. CABAYE4
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Salah or KDB? Planned to bring in KDB but part of me thinks bringing back Salah might be a better option with City not firing.

            Alternatively is selling Son to get both for a hit worth it?

            1. Ajax Hamsterdam
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              kdb for next 2 then salah v fulham imo

            2. George James
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Hold IMO

            3. fn.jota
                1 month, 28 days ago

                For me salah is uncertain at the moment because he didnt play well yesterday. This gameweek KDB but id look bring in salah in gw12

                people say Salah's performance on Atalanta game was poor

                Thoughts on how to upgrade team? I have 4.4m in the bank and one free transfer.
                Thinking James to KDB which gives me .5 left but really unsure what to do.

                  Could split the 4.4 to upgrade to a premium defender and then Bissouma to Jota (or something like that).

                  In all the content (written and audio) I've never heard Walker (6.1) mentioned as a pick. Given we all have accepted Cancelo is a rotation risk and I personally prefer Walker (who is nailed w rest midweek) over Dias/Laporte.

                  Thoughts?

                    Doubt there's many of us still with Bowen! Want to get rid but at that price there's little else or interest. Unless Jota is your guy...

                  Why are a lot of people getting rid of Kane when he has returns in every GW except GW1? He has the highest points total joint with Son.

                  1. Mile Plankton
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    Tough fixtures, plus easy fixtures for Vardy.
                    It's not like people went crazy. There is some logic behind.

                    • 4 Years

                    would you keep Kane if you didn't have any City attacker?

                    Vardy at home to Fulham.

                    I've done Kane => Vardy (capt) for free this week, purely because of the respective fixtures.

                    I'm well aware it could come back to bite me though!

                    His returns and stats have lessened in the last 4 games and if you watched the city game you’ll see that for the majority of it he is not as far forward as son and did not have many shots, he’ll be more likely to haul against the small teams but will still score points

                    Fair enough Gents but be prepared to get bitten in the backside if Vardy doesn't haul!

                  Nicely rested Kane and Son vs tired old Chelsea. Yes please.

                    Plenty of rest for Chelsea.

                  Is Laporte a good pick? Nailed on?

                    should be yes, very nice pick imo

                  any thoughts about Bamford?

                  Would you start Brewster or Targett this week? I also have Martinez so the latter would be a Villa double-up

                  Hello

                  Midnight dilemma:

                  My first transfer being Werner to Vardy (c), would you drop 4 pts for Zaha to Jota?

                  Alternative is to save 4pts and field Dallas vs Eve and have no bench (zaha mitchell alzate).

                    Play Dallas. He’s impressive.

                  Dallas is my 4th defender (so mostly first or second sub with Brewster) based on that bench, should I do Saiss >>

                    what's the difference between the two?

                      Dias perhaps a little more nailed, Cancelo a bit more attacking threat...

                  Repost. Sorry

                  Best option

                  A) Werner / Vardy / Son / Reece James

                  B) Vardy / Kane / Son / Soucek -4

                  C) Vardy / Kane / Jota / Reece James -4

                  Hey guys quick one for you

                  A) Robertson and Jota

                  C) Vardy and Diaz/Cancelo -4

                  Will be switching from 3-5-2 to 3-4-3 if C

                  Would you take a hit on Jrod to KDB to avoid his price drop tonight? That 0.1 could become an issue in a few weeks..
