Targeting Man City assets and why I’m holding onto the Wildcard

Manchester City’s Gameweek 10 fixture swing is finally upon us and it could prove to be pivotal to how the Fantasy Premier League season pans out for many of us.

We have truly reached an important crossroads for our big decisions as the focus continues shift away from Tottenham assets in the direction of Manchester City’s premium attackers. 

The Citizens have seriously explosive potential as they host Burnley (who could be short of Nick Pope), Fulham and West Bromwich Albion in the next four rounds while Newcastle will come to the Etihad Stadium in Gameweek 15.

            Cheers. I want KDB but only way I can do that is Kane + Bruno >> Vardy + KDB

            Worth it?

          I finding it tough this week so giving advice is difficult.

          It’s also Difficult to recommend getting rid of Kane.

          How about son + Werner > Jota + Vardy.

          Or downgrade James to whatever it takes. Then Podence to Jota.
          You have a decent bench and can afford even a non playing really cheap defender.

          Just an idea

            Great advice. Thanks pal

        What’s with Jota rising so quickly?

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          choo choo the Jota train.

      6. zon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        So...

        Vardy + Jota

        or

        Bamford + Sterling

        1. Old Gregg

      7. damiang2233

        Is Jota worth getting in?

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          yes imo. but would not break team to fit him in.

        2. mrelpea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Id say so. I brought him in on wc in gw8 with the plan of doubling up with Salah after Spurs played West Brom, but then Salah caught corona. Im quite happy with him as my Liverpool asset for now, as hell get regular minutes. And more importantly is scoring regulalrly

        Need a Zaha replacement thinking either Mahrez or Teilemans?

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          neither really appeal. You could hope Mahrez finds some magic form dust.

      9. Hybrid Theory
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Is it worth -8 for:

        Kane, Podence & Jimenez to Vardy, KDB & Bamford?

        Have exact funds

        1. George James
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Yeah

        2. Chucky
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          yes love it..

          100%

      10. Dirty Harry
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Worth keeping Mane (have Salah also) for their games against bha WOL ful or look at Bruno IN for Mane OUT.

        1. mrelpea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Liverpool have great fixtures coming but mane/Salah double up seems a bit much, especially with Bruno firing and city’s fixtures. Do you already have KDB?

          1. Dirty Harry
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            No KDB.

            In a sticky situation, no KDB, no Bruno, no Spurs

      11. George James
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Ok let’s try it this way.

        Best option moving forward

        A) Werner + James + 4 points

        B) Kane + Soucek

        1. George James
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          I also own Chilwell if that matters

          yeah looked like a looong pass to smbd

      13. Parsnips
          1 month, 27 days ago

          What change would u make to this squad with 1FT?

          Martinez
          Coufal Chilwell Robo
          KDB Bruno Jota Barkley*
          Watkins DCL Werner

          Ryan Mitchell Anguissa Dunne

          3.9mil ITB and was thinking Dunne > Cancelo and play 4 at the back this weekend?

          1. Pino
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I would upgrade one of the bench players.

        • JURGENAUT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 27 days ago

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

          Team becomes:

          McCarthy
          Chilwell - Justin - TARGETT
          Bruno (VC) - KDB (C) - Grealish - JOTA
          Kane - Werner - Calvert-Lewin

          Forster - Mitchell - Stephens - Lamptey

          0.6 ITB.

          The -8 hit isn't ideal but this would be a long term move as I intend to keep KDB for his good run and in GW11, I'd use the 0.6 on a free transfer to upgrade bench with a free transfer.

          Thoughts please? Thank you

          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?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year

            It's very expensive for someone with as little attacking threat as he provides.

            1. Camino Aleatorio
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              Agree - plus Cancelo is just Pep risk this week. With Walker you are guaranteed one week probably and he may not play next week

              Frustrating- and now you lost the more dynamic Cancelo unless you double on City defenders

              Seems a Trap

        • Mane Mane Mane
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 27 days ago

          A) Jota for Zaha (-4)
          B) Jota for Zaha, KDB for Son (-8)
          C) Fernandes for Zaha
          D) leave it, but means I will have to play Dallas/Mitchell if Zaha doesn’t make it?

        • Bobby's Teeth
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Does Cancelo look like a good bet for the next five fixtures? My concern is about his minutes.
