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.

    Son ➡️ Sterling -4?

    For two weeks, before getting Mo back in GW 12. Have Kane don’t want to get rid of Son but i think It’ll be worth it - Sterling could go big in these next 2.. Can’t afford KDB or Mo yet.

      There’s no way I’d do that move until Raz shows some form

    BB with a bench of Johnstone(SHU) Soucek(AVL) Coufal(AVL) Targett(whu)?

      .. or save for DGW

        Save

      Save unless you think it will be 0-0 and shouldn't have Soucek.

      I presume you planned it this way? If so, don't let others talk you out of it.

      I was going to play it this week, but I think I will delay one more week. I've got Soucek and Targett also, along with Justin and McCarthy. I've got more confidence in Targett (NEW) and Justin (shu) in GW11 than this week, which sways me toward waiting a week.

    Would you do Hamez Reguilon to Sterling Cancelo -4?

    Would (c) Sterling next week

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years

      Yup

  4. Daniel - WC Active

    Any news on Antonio? I pray he doesn't fall in price tonight and hope for positive news tomorrow and flag removal.

    2.6m ITB 0FT. Any hits worth?

    Martinez (Steer)
    Robbo Cancelo Coufal (Lamptey Mitchell)
    Bruno Son Ziyech JRodriguez Podence
    Kane DCL (Davis)

    Not sure on captain atm

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years

      Team looks good, captn Bruno.

  6. Steve The Spud

    Vardy injured yet ?

    1. Brehmeren
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      Just scored

  7. AC Yew
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 15 hours ago

    For Man City cover if you had to pick between Cancelo/Dias or KDB which would you prioritize for this week?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      KDB

    2. GoonSquad
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      KdB

    3. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      Depends who you are selling

      1. AC Yew
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 hours ago

        Zaha and Kane for KDB + Jota (-4)
        Cancelo/Dias straight swop with Saiss

  8. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 15 hours ago

    Is Justin still a relatively safe pick for the next 2-3 weeks?

    1. Indpush
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      At least two yes

  9. Captain Vantastic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Zaha to Madison for free?

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nice differential

  10. Michelle Davin
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 15 hours ago

    Zaha to:

    A)salah
    B)kdb

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      B

    2. Frucke
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      Salah

  11. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 15 hours ago

    Seeing the state of my defense & no other pressing issues..

    Martinez | Fodder
    Cancelo Justin Lascelles*
    KdB Bruno Ziyech Grealish
    Vardy Richarlison Watkins
    | Soucek Lamptey* Taylor

    1 FT, 2.1 ITB

    ..Cancelo to Robertson?

    As Cancelo might be rested in one of the next 2 easy games & I'll anyway be doing that transfer in GW 12.

    1. joey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      Is this serious? If you are concerned about your defence why take out Cancelo, the best defender you have. There's no guarantees he'll be rested, Lamptey is suspended and Newcastle can't defend very well anyway. I'd rather be losing Lascelles from that lot, probably for Chilwell.

      Do you try to avoid the more largely owned players, eg having Richarlison over DCL etc? If so then I can see why you wouldn't want Chilwell.

    Looks like Alli is back on the menu, boys!

      Never lol

  13. joey

    What's this potential blank and double in 18 and 19 about? I'm out the loop, thanks

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      Potential DGW for those teams that didn’t play GW1

      1. joey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 14 hours ago

        I assumed that would be at some point, what's the blank about though?

  14. bigdip
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 14 hours ago

    RMWCT and any changes you think I should make (Thanks!):

    GK: Mccarthy Steer
    DEF: KWP Zouma Kilman Cancelo Taylor
    MID: Bruno Son Bissouma Sterling Jota
    FW: Vardy DCL Wilson

    1. DK_13
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      1)Forster as back up keeper because if McCarthy doesn't play you get him and plus Heaton will replace steer soon
      2) I would lose kwp as Southampton have a horrible extended run of fixtures for a double up.(targett at 4.5 looks way better)

    2. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      Grealish blanked last week, but I don't think he's ignorable on a WC. I would find the million to get him over Wilson. Probably downgrading Son.

  15. Rhodes your boat
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 14 hours ago

    Best 4th defender to bring in (will start this week due to lamptey suspension)

    A) dann
    B) kwp
    C) Dallas
    D) coufal (have balbuena)
    E) nkounkou

    1. BeWater
        3 months, 14 hours ago

        I like Dallas as a long term pick. I'm likely going to get him for Taylor once I sort out the other disasters in my team.

      • Dosh
        • 6 Years

        E

    2. BeWater
        3 months, 14 hours ago

        A) Kane and Barkley > Bamford/Antonio and KDB -4

        1. Lucky Z
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 14 hours ago

          Mitro => Watkins

        2. Frucke
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 13 hours ago
