    My mids; Grealish, Zaha, Fernandes (C), Bowen, JRod (all 5 play)

    A. Zaha to Jota
    B. Zaha to Mahrez
    C. Zaha & JRod to Salah/KDB & Jota (-4)

        Wouldn’t but four. So A

      • Must.Go.Faster.
          1 month, 24 days ago

          That said, C

      • The Frenchie
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        A)
        Martinez
        Chilwell / Zouma / Justin
        De Bruyne / Bruno Fernandes / Son / Grealish
        Kane / Calvert-Lewin / Bamford

        B)
        Martinez
        Chilwell / Zouma / Justin
        Salah / De Bruyne / Bruno Fernandes / Son / Grealish
        Calvert-Lewin / Bamford

        So basically:

        A) Kane
        B) Salah

        1. Feed tha Sheep
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Prob B just though that’s really tough. I’m only saying that due to fixtures

      • Feed tha Sheep
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Have 1FT what to do?

        A. Foden > Jota
        B. Werner > Vardy
        C. TAA > Cancelo/Robertson (if not will play Taylor v City)
        D. Any two for -4
        E. Foden & TAA > KDB & Williams/ Nkounkou (4.1) -4

        1. DeltaKilo
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          B

        2. Max City
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I'd do A or C

        3. Mile Plankton
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          C
          and maybe c and b for minus 4

      • DeltaKilo
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Bottomed:

        Hey guys quick one for you

        A) Robertson and Jota
        B) Robertson and Torres
        C) Vardy and Diaz/Cancelo -4

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

        Cheers

        1. Feed tha Sheep
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          A or C

        2. Max City
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          A for me

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          A

      • Rohun
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Watkins and Bruno to Vardy (c) and Jota for -4 ?

        Or Hold?

        1. Sweetboi
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Why would you get rid of Watkins and Bruno? Not for me.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Hold.

        3. Max City
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          sideway moves and not worth a hit, imho

      • Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        would you lose one of Kane + Son to facilitate getting in a Man City player?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Yes Kane

        • 2 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Bottomed on last page...

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

        1. Mile Plankton
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Looks like a 1 pointer either way.
          Brewster for a potential attacking return.

      • Mile Plankton
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

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

        Zaha -> ? (got 11,3)

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

        1. GuenDoozy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I actually think both D and E are worth it long term

          1. Must.Go.Faster.
              1 month, 24 days ago

              ^This and that said

            • 4 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            b or c, I would do

            1. FourLokoLeipzig
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              B for me (I’m tempted to take a my first hit of the season to get him in this week). Thanks for the comment above

          3. AD2110
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            B with Lamptey if you haven’t got?

        2. Shark Team
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          The question is ?
          You'd rather have Spurs double up with Son alongside Kane
          Or
          Add Jota to my already owned Liverpool duo of Robbo + Salah ?

        3. JJeyy
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Coufal or James Justin?

          1. Mile Plankton
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Justin this week.
            Coufal longer term.

          Captain KDB or Vardy? Burnley without Pope is there for the taking

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Vardy

        5. mash
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          McCarthy
          Chilwell Justin KWP
          Fernandes Son Grealish Podence
          Kane Werner DCL

          Steer Bissouma Davies Taylor

          1FT, £2.2m in the bank

          Which is best?

          A) Werner to Vardy
          B) Kane to Vardy

          Planning to go with A.

          1. mataofperspective
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Had the same dilemma, set on A all week and I went for B

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

        7. Max City
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          would you keep 6.5m in the bank or spend it for a hit?

            Money in the bank should not dictate hits

          • 2 Years

          Current GW10 team

          Martinez
          Robbo Chilwell Mitchell
          KDB (C) Son Ziyech Grealish Jota
          Kane DCL (VC)

          (Forster KWP Brewster Lamptey)

          A) Kane to Vardy
          B) Roll FT

          If I do A, I can then look at Vardy to Bamford to help fund a move back to Mo

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            A feels right.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Would you still (c) KDB if you got Vardy?

            1. MikeLowrey
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Would more than likely put the C on Vardy

            Don’t know. Small sample size though.

            I thought it was Lamptey lol

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Is there a case for Wilson who is back and has Hayden/Shelvey back with the best next 6 fixtures of all teams?

          I am choosing him or Bamford I know Bams stats are otherworldly but Wilson nonPenxg is decent can he be a valid differential in the next 6.

          Thoughts?
          Cheers.

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years

            There is.

            exactly the same dilemma for me, one of these will replace Jimenez
            couple of recent pods with newcastle fans suggest they would rather invest in their defence like lewis than Wilson because outside of pens the supply is rubbish
            Still torn myself - besides coming off injury what's your view on Wilson?

            1. Vidal Castro
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Thanks for the reply.
              For me I'm going with Bamford because Leeds and him are the 2nd best attacking side stats even with his 'fnishing'. He couldve braced against Arsenal who are somewhat resolute.

              For Wilson my power rankings for sub7 mill its:
              Bam then Callum then Antonio.

              If u have bam try to upgrade Jimi to Werner who I feel Wil start firing (w pens).

              Best of luck

                1 month, 24 days ago

                The good thing about both Werner and Bamford (and Watkins) is they’re constantly in the action with chances. Eventually a big score

                • 10 Years

                Have Kane DCL Jimenez and want to downgrade Jimenez to fund Salah for gw12 and beyond

                • 10 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                Did you go Bamford or Wilson?
                I went Bamford, bloody Wilson!

                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  I started the thread betting on Callums fixtures but talked myself out of it and went for Bamford.

          Who to drop to my bench this week: grealish, jrod, rashford, jota?

          1. huhhh
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Jrod or jota

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 24 days ago

            None really. All have great fixtures and potential for big return

            1. SuperG
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              If it were an easy choice, I wouldn’t be asking. But my other choices are Vardy, Kane, Bruno and DCL. All those are better. So one of my original selection needs to get benched.

          3. Max City
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Jrod, out of those.. considering his position last time out

          4. jimmy.floyd
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Jota

          5. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            JRod I suppose. Very tough though.

            1. SuperG
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              I’m edging to Grealish. He’s the lowest on my Rate My Team page. Mistake?

          6. Hart-ake
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            Definitely not Rashford or Jota surely.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          A) Kane -> Vardy or
          B) Chilwell -> Dias? Either would save funds for Foden to KDB next week

          1. SuperG
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Personally I wouldn’t make either change.

          With Foden starting midweek and Jota not starting seems obvious what happens at the weekend
          Would you make the swap this week even though city have the fixtures?

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Yes

          2. LSK
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            I think Jota will play. But I wouldn’t try and guess Pep’s team based on midweek minutes. I had Foden earlier in the season and when he didn’t play midweek he still didn’t play at the weekend. Far more variables than midweek minutes.

            1. HMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years

              that's fair
              just seems odd Foden isn't already starting more PL games and Torres is getting minutes

                Yep, I got frustrated with him and sold a few weeks back. Came on at half time, scored, looked great, didn’t play midweek so I was sure he’d start at the weekend and then he was benched again. He could get a run in the side now, or could be permabenched, who knows?

          I have 2 FTS and 2.9m banked. Pretty much set on Kane to Vardy. Would you save the other FT or make a move? I may have my hand forced if Barkley is out. If he is, sell him for Jota/Barkley or sell another mid for KDB, and risk only having 10 players?

          Pickford
          Gabriel Chilwell James (Saiss Mitchell)
          Son Rashford Bruno Barkley* (Reed)
          Kane DCL Watkins

            I’d actually prioritize to get rid of Saiss or Mitchell

              Oh really? I know they have to go but was hoping for a bit of fire power.

          Which Everton defender will replace Digne?

            Nkounkou

              Possibly. Not as straightforward as that, Carlo has options.

              I sure hope it's him, I've just snapped him up.

            Prob Nkounkou, which is even more likely if they continue with a back three setup.

        17. Muscout

          McCarthy
          Cancelo, Chilwell, Lamptey
          Bruno, Sterling, Son, Zaha, Soucek
          Kane, DCL

          Steer, Brewster, Mitchell, Branthwaite

          2 FT, £2.6 itb

          Mitchell and Zaha to Kilman and Jota/Grealish?

          Help!

          I sold kane for vardy for free
          And now i want to sell son for kdb for -4 but ppl asking me not to but why?

          Kdb against a popeless burnley...

            Always a risk losing players like Son, especially for a hit, but De Bruyne does look tasty for the next few.

            I think Kdb outscores Son over the next 5/6 gws
            doing it for free myself
            if he's the player you want then do it - if unsure then hold

            I wouldn’t. Burnley have their mojo back. Hold.

              Mojo? Who?

          Most frustrating week in a while in terms of fires needing put out have already done zaha+Kane to vardy/Jota for -4.

          Defence is Robbo, Konsa lamptey Mitchell and saiss

          Do I start Mitchell and hope he or saiss get minimum 1 or sell saiss for cancelo and the dreaded -8?

            I'd prob take the hit now, as Mitchell and Saiss are gonna be issues going forward regardless.

            1. mataofperspective
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              I’m thinking the same , cancelo for this week and next week makes more sense , than potentially a hit anyway for next week

            I’m in the same situation. I have Barkley too.

              Do you have cover at all for Barkley ?

          What to do here?

          Meslier - Caprille
          Chilwell - Cancelo - Taylor - Bellerin - Mitchell
          Mane - Jota - Son - Podence - Havertz
          Jimi - DCL - Watkins

              Jimi + Havertz -> KDB + Jesus was my plan. But not sure on Jesus anymore..

            Havertz-jimi to KDB+Antonio/bamford still keep you with funds to do podence to mid priced mid next week

              Think Antonio will play?

                He was apparently almost there last week, I’d say he gets 60 this week
