    Hi All....(apologies for the essay)

    I was wondering if anyone has any strategies for how to make 50/50 calls - decisions where the stats, fixtures, and eye test all work for a couple of players, and it’s a straight choice between them. I’ve had several of these this season, and seem to have gotten them all wrong! (see below, * for the one I went with):

    GW2: *Rashford/Son, *Richarlison/DCL
    GW7: *Zaha/Grealish
    GW9: *Target/Coufal

    Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve made a couple of duff transfers as well (Podence GW3 anyone?), but nothing too tragic. I’ve thought that over time I should get a few more of these right, however it does feel like they’ve had a fairly serious impacts as it often takes a couple of moves to repair.

    Noted that this is a relatively small sample set, but just wondered whether I was missing something, or anyone has any strategies for dealing with such decisions

    Thanks in advance

      I think the main thing is if you are unsure to err on the side of patience and fix some other area of your team. A mistake when not acting is 4 pts better than a mistake when acting. In the case where you need to move and are 50/50 between 2 replacements, you are in the luck of the draw territory unfortunately.

        Yes patience is undoubtedly crucial - but does mean setting these calls straight n often be left too long

          Yeah I guess the OR impact and flow on effect to price changes mean we are biased toward over reaction rather than under reaction to the thing that just happened. If u are aware of this natural bias (that exists in us all) it may help in future decisions.

    How did Salah play today? Is he a safe starter against BHA?

            Using free transfer on Podence to Jota gets me this team. But defender move needed as Mitchell unlikely to play- which do you think best? Saïss to

                  All good. Later just up Mitchell to a WH to have a bit of a stronger bench?

                      Scared to go without Salah though and dont want to sell any of the mids. Was thinking Kane, Biss, Zouma - > Salah, Brewster, Coufal next week could be An option

                      A.

                      I have them both. Vardy a must for the home game against Fulham. Jota is scoring goals for fun so makes sense to have him in case he scores a brace or a hattrick from midfield.

                    A) Just get Salah now

                    Is Leeds man marking system a good or bad fixture for James this weekend?

                    1. FC Hakkebøf
                      • 3 Years
                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      Bad imo.. They will mark him the same way they marked KDB. They aim for the playmaker.

                      1. Homeandhosed
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        1 month, 29 days ago

                        Yep that is my instinct too. The recently returned from injury Leeds CDM probably gets the job if Everton retain the wing back system which is another negative I guess

                    Kilman or Dallas to transfer in this week?

                    Will be a bench player after thatvl just covering Lamptey

                      • 11 Years

                      Dallas

                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    Are any Man City players worth a punt this week, or should we wait for their form to improve?

                    1. Joggers Nipple
                      • 11 Years
                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      Thinking on J Rod to KDB, seems an acceptable risk

                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 10 Years
                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      Not really a punt but I thought KDB looked decent against Spurs, if Rodri or Dias had scored their free headers he'd have ended up on 8 points plus he's rested

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    Can do
                    Ziyech + Rodriguez > de Bruyne + Jota for a -4.

                    Already have DCL and Werner as Eve/Che attackers and have no Liv/MCi attackers so like the diversity move.

                    Thoughts?

                      I thought Jota looked dynamite against a good Leicester team on Sunday so I took a hit to bring him and Vardy in (helped that I had Zaha tough)

                    Is Saiss simply bench fodder now, even when he's fit?

                      Looks that way I'm afraid

                    2. 2OLEgend
                        1 month, 29 days ago

                        Looks like it. Not first choice for sure

                        1 month, 29 days ago

                        Nothing is certain but it looks as though the LB role is Kilmans to lose and Saïss isn't comfortable on the wing so Marcąl and Ait Nouri should be battling for that spot. Hard for Nuno to fit him in currently, if Coady was out for an extended period of time it's possible he gets a game or 2 but I think Coady is due back this weekend after having a negative COVID test.

                          Would rather do Podence, Kane - > KDB, Warkins/Antonio(if fit)

                            Cheers i'm happy to bench Podence but not sure i'd be happy to bench Watkins/Antonio every week

                                Ah, true that. Could go for Brewster and upgrade Jrod to Salah with the money?

                          Would you sell Bamford to get Jota for a hit?

                              Bamford is up against Everton's leaky defence next so no.

                              Bamford has also a good run of fixtures starting in a couple of GWs...wouldn't get rid of him.

                              who going to the bench

                              A. Bamford vs. Everton I have Hames and DCL
                              B. Chillwell vs. Spurs I have Son and Kane
                              C. Cresswell vs. Villa I have Grealish and Martinez

                              What I was planning to was play McCarthy(also have Bruno) for Martinez
                              bring in Kilman against Arsenal for any of the three ..

                              Do either of these work?
                              A) Kane, Zaha > Vardy, Salah (-4)
                              B) Brewster, Saiss > Vardy , Neco (-4)

                                Are these moves worth a -4?

                                Saiss, Wilson, Soucek => Dias, Brewster, Jota

                                or

                                Saiss => Dias and roll a transfer

                                Here is the current team:

                                Martinez – (Button)
                                Robbo – Kilman - Targett – (Lamptey) (Saiss)
                                Salah – Bruno – Son – Grealish - (Soucek)
                                Bamford – DCL - Wilson

                                          Is it worth bringing Salah back this week for a hit?

                                          Chilwell James Cancelo Justin (Mitchell)
                                          KDB (C) Bruno Son Grealish (Podence)
                                          Vardy DCL (Brewster)

                                          A) Podence > Jota (-4) (exact funds tonight).
                                          C) Save and play 442

                                          A would mean benching one of Justin, James or Chilwell. Cancelo may not play so may need all 3 anyway. Plan would then to bring Salah back for a double up in GW12.

                                              Thanks all, the move has been done! I now have a big benching headache going forwards but will refer to it as Covid insurance!

                                            I have 4m itb which allows me to upgrade Ziyech to Salah for a hit.

                                            Is it madness?
