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.

        2. Merlinho

    I need to either play 2 from Reguilon (che) Zouma (TOT) Dallas (eve) or take a hit to bring in Dias or maybe a Leicester defender if any are nailed.

    What do you think lads?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Zouma and Dallas will do the job

    2. Arthur Shelby
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Play Zouma and Reguilon imo. Not worth a hit.

  4. Arthur Shelby
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Who scores more for the rest of the season, Ziyech or Auba?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Ziyech atm

      1. Arthur Shelby
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Cheers. Draft trade... Looking to buy Auba 'low' but the worry is he won't recover

    2. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      the only way to go Auba would be before a couple of consecutive games against whipping boys. but so many other big hitters have great fixtures it's tantamount to self harm.

      1. Arthur Shelby
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        It's draft so a more long-term approach. But valid point still, thanks.

        1. Sarri-ball
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          For draft auba still beatd ziyach gor mechance of both or a swap deal?

  5. Holmes
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    About to lose value on Rodriguez again, sigh...

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      More points for you then.

    2. Wılly
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      More opportunities for him with Digne out

  6. The Red Devil
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Guaita
    Robertson kilman zouma
    Son Fernandes Ziyech grealish
    Watkins DCL Kane

    Nyland Taylor burke dunne
    1 FT 3.3 ITB
    Kane to Vardy (C) is the plan

    Any Suggestions?

  7. ABCDEFC
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Which move would you make?

    A) Saiss to Konsa
    B) Kane to Vardy
    C) Kane, Saiss and Podence to Vardy, Konsa and Jota (-8)

    1. JohnBlack
      • 2 Years

      A

  8. No Professionals
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    i literally have no idea what to do, having no city or liverpool big hitters will make it painful viewing. Happy to take the hit.

    Chilwell Saiss Taylor

    A) looks the best bet?

    1. Thescaff

      A

  9. youzef
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    What to pick
    A) Son and Jimenez out for De Bruyne and Wilson in for a - 4 hit?
    B) Ziyech and Jimenez out for Fernandes and Bamford for a -4 hit?
    C) Ziyech and Jimenez out for Ferran Torres and Vardy for a - 4 hit?

    I own Salah, Ziyech, Grealish,Jota, DCL, and Watkins.

    1. Thescaff
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Don't take a hit

      1. youzef
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        May I ask why ?

        1. youzef
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Should I just bench Jimenez and Aurier and play this lineup and save FT.

          McCarthy
          Chillwell Cancelo Justin
          Jota Son Salah(C) Ziyech Grealish
          DCL Watkins

            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Given the attacker you'd bench, save.

  10. FantasyHero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Gents how does this sound:
    Grealish kane jimmy -> kdb vardy Watkins for -8
    Given Watkins is on penalties I think he is worth it.
    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 before getting kdb but who knows which one starts
    Team:
    Martinez steer
    Lamptey Mitchell Dallas coufal chilwell
    Grealish* son fernandes hamez bissouma
    Kane* jimmy* DCL

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Not worth it

  11. Catastrophe
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Anything worth a hit chaps?

    Martinez
    Chilwell, Zouma, Justin
    KDB, Fernandes, Son, Jota
    Vardy, DCL, Bamford

    (Steer, Kilman, Bissouma, Mitchell)

    Planning Justin -> Dias/Cancelo GW11 and Vardy & Bissouma -> Salah (c) & Brewster GW12.

    Cheers.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years

      'sall good man

  12. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    This is my defence:
    Robertson Chilwell Lamptey Coufal Kilman

    I want to play 3 of them every gw but i have 2 options cause i don't have enough money for my attack:

    A)This defence + Jota
    B)Downgrade something in this defence for 1.6m + Son

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Jota

  13. Kryptonite666
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Defence is a mess. Expect City to get a clean sheet v Burnley. Is Dallas to Cancelo worth a hit. Should pay off in a couple of weeks.

    Martinez

    Chillwell Dallas KWP (Lamptey) (Branthwaite)

    KDB Fernandes Ziyech Grealish (Stephens)

    Vardy Bamford DCL

    1. Sco
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      The only issue I have is taking a hit for him when he's not nailed could be a disaster.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Rather lose KWP if you look a few weeks ahead

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I thought about that. But Lamptey and KWP rotate well next few weeks.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Ok. Dias a bit more nailed? I have Cancelo already and a bit concerned he might get a rest after playing 90 mins mid-week

          1. Kryptonite666
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Cancelo looks more likely to get an occasional assist. Although Dias is also meant to be a threat from set pieces.

            Mendy has been shambolic so don't see Cancelo losing his spot.

            Expect some rotation during hectic Christmas schedule so need a bench to cover for him. All things considered, still prefer Cancelo

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Feel reassured now.
              GL.

      1. Slitherene
        • 2 Years

        Might be rested, no?

  15. Lindelol
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Semedo to Dias for a hit? Yes or No?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Semedo plays Arsenal.

      1. Lindelol
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Should I wait one more week then?

        1. TorresMagic™

          • Has Moderation Rights

          If you are doing it for a hit next GW, it's all about this GW.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…

      Arsenal can't score

    2 months, 1 day ago

    Was going to ignore kdb but now the pope news just seems too good to be true.
    Which of these?
    A) grealish and r.James to kdb and balbuena
    B) grealish and Kane to kdb and vardy
    C) bissouma and Kane to kdb and watkins

  17. JURGENAUT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 1 day ago

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

    McCarthy
    Chilwell - Justin - TARGETT
    Bruno - KDB - Grealish - JOTA
    Kane - Werner - Calvert-Lewin

    0.5 ITB.

    Thoughts?

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Don't like a - 8

    2. Abra Dubravka

      No

  18. SHOOTER MCGINN

    Martinez
    Robbo Dias Chilwell
    Bruno (c) Son Grealish Bowen
    Kane DCL Richarlison

    Steer Mitchell Bissouma Lamptey

    Anything worth a hit? Have 2m in the bank, but can't see much unless I go for a -8. Bowen to Jota is an option

      If I rank 1.5k and have to play Zouma, Chilwell, Son, Kane and Werner, should I do the old fashion Werner>Vardy(c) or should i just use my WC and bring the likes of Salah and Kdb

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B) Son and Watkins out for De Bruyne and Brewster for a -4 hit?
      C) Son and Jimenez out for Ferran Torres and Vardy for a - 4 hit?
      D) Save FT.
