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.

          1. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            Not in my team clearly

            Kane over Vardy here

            1. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years

              Team is fine given the omissions.

  5. wulfranian

    3 months, 10 days ago

    And now all the doubts are gone.Vardy(c) it is.

    1. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      Never had any.

  6. royals forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Best Man City DF to have out of

    Dias
    Cancelo

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      Either one of those two

    2. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      Neither.

    3. Dosh
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      There's s good chance that Cancelo will be rested in one of the next 2 easy games

    4. jb1985
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      I have gone Dias over Canceling due to more certainty of starts.

  7. CarelessGenius©
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 10 days ago

    Grealish or Jota?

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      Grealish.

    2. Il Capitano
        3 months, 10 days ago

        Still Grealish for me

    3. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      Worth keeping Son and Hamez ?

      Could get KDB/Salah in place of Son
      or
      Sterling in place of Hamez

      1. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

        Would much rather have KDB or Salah than Sterling

      2. Jindaljain
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

        Hamez not needed

    4. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      Guys, whom to start?

      A. Reguilon vs Chelsea away
      B. Targett vs West Ham away

      1. Jindaljain
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

        B

    5. spamking
        3 months, 10 days ago

        A. Mane > KDb (-4)
        B. Mane > Salah (-4)

        1. ZAWAd25
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          Why get rid of Mane for a hit?

        2. DA Minnion
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          A or just save.

        3. BOATIES FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          Save

      • Noah’s Ark
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

        Please help. I’m stuck on

        A) Cresswell to Dias/Cancelo for free
        B) Cresswell and Werner to 4.7 & Vardy(c) -4
        C) Kane and Cresswell to Dias/Cancelo & Vardy(c) -4
        D) Chillwell and Werner to Cancelo/Dias and Vardy(c) -4

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          If you don’t get Vardy, who will you captain?

          1. Noah’s Ark
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            Fernandes likely or else DCL/Kane

            1. Rasping Drive
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              The issue is I think all of your sell options have a decent chance of getting points this week. I’d be tempted to do nothing

              1. Noah’s Ark
                • 8 Years
                3 months, 10 days ago

                Thank you

      • DA Minnion
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

        Have two frees and want Vardy.
        So
        A
        Kane to Vardy and save other.
        B.
        Wilson and Son to Vardy and Jota.
        Other mids are Bruno Sterling and Grealish.
        Would really like some advice lads.

        1. Big Hands Barry
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          B

        2. BOATIES FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          I like B but its very close

        3. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          I'd sell Sterling before Kane or Son.

          1. DA Minnion
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            One very last chance and then to Kevin.

        4. Dosh
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          If I had to choose one between Kane and Son, I would keep Son.

      • BOATIES FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

        Martinez
        Robbo Chilly Bellerin
        Salah (c) Bruno Grealish Jota
        Kane DCL Wilson

        Steer Ayling Reed Dunne

        GTG? any moves would be for a hit

        1. Traction Engine Foot
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          GTG

      • Cech's Magic Hat
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

        Help! I'm stuck with Zaha and Barkley 1 ft and just rubbish on the bench. 4.3 itb so no issues there. Could do:

        A. Grealish + another mid-price (ziyech?)
        B. KDB + budget (under 6.0)

        Any other good options? What would you do?

      • Bring the Cavalry
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

        When pereira comes back, will Justin move to CB or the bench?

        1. BOATIES FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          Bench, Soyuncu will be back soonish

          1. Bring the Cavalry
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            Sounds like he is still a wee bit away, no timeframe been mentioned

        2. Traction Engine Foot
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          Bench I'd imagine

        3. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          Good question. Castagne also to return.

        4. Noah’s Ark
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          Who has Thomas been playing ahead of for Leicester?

      • Traction Engine Foot
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

        What should I do here? Got 6m itb because I intended to sell Jota for Salah but I've kind of gone off that now... Thinking Ziyech to Salah/KDB, or just save.

        McCarthy
        Chilwell, Cancelo, PVA
        Ziyech, Jota, Bruno, Grealish
        Watkins, Vardy, DCL

        Martin, Soucek, Cresswell, Kilman

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          I’d save

          1. Keep Calm and Play On
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            Agreed save this week

        2. Traction Engine Foot
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          Thanks, when in doubt doing nothing usually seems the best bet

      • Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

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

        1 FT, 2.1 ITB

        GW 10 : Cancelo -> Robertson
        GW 12 : Ziyech, Grealish, Richarlison -> Salah, 5.5, Wilson

        Makes sense?

        1. Neves say Neves
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          Why would you sell cancelo? Great fixtures coming up

          1. Slitherene
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            Isn't he likely to be rotated/rested with the easy fixtures coming up?

            Wanted a more nailed player.

        2. Keep Calm and Play On
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          Looks good but I would even considering holding this week

          1. Slitherene
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            Then I'll have let a FT go to waste in GW 11.

            1. Keep Calm and Play On
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              I’m sure you would find something to change, always better to have it abs not need it than need it and not have it

              1. Keep Calm and Play On
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 10 days ago

                Plus you’d probably want to lose Justin soon anyway so that’s a transfer

        3. BOATIES FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          Keep Cancelo

          1. Slitherene
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            He surely starts then?

            1. BOATIES FC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              obvs not guaranteed, it is Pep for starters.

      • Keep Calm and Play On
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 10 days ago

        Jiminez and Zaha to Vardy(c) and Jota is a no brainer right? Even for -4

        1. Neves say Neves
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 10 days ago

          I'd say so. Great moves

        2. BeWater
            3 months, 10 days ago

            I would.

          • BOATIES FC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 10 days ago

            looks good

          • Il Capitano
              3 months, 10 days ago

              Like it

            • Werner Bremen
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              If Zaha doesn't play, then yes

              Cheers all, should have just gone with my gut last night but oh well

            • DA Minnion
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              Wish my moves were that easy.

            • Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              Yeah those moves look like no brainers to me.

            • Slitherene
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              JWP for Jota, long term

              1. Keep Calm and Play On
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 10 days ago

                I think that’s the move later tbh, I like the looks of JWP

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              Maybe Barnes instead of Jota?

          • King Kun Ta
            • 5 Years

            Bottomed before...

            Chilwell Robbo Justin Ayling Mitchell
            Ziyech Son Bruno Grealish Bissouma
            Kane DCL Bamford

            1 FT and 3.1 itb

            A Kane -> Vardy
            B Son -> KDB
            C Son -> Salah
            D take a hit and get out Son & Kane

            Ta lads!

            1. DA Minnion
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              Wouldn't lose both spurs.

                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 10 days ago

                  I've a similar dilemma. And don't have an answer yet!

                  1. King Kun Ta
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 10 days ago

                    Did Kane to Vardy!

              If I had to pick it’s C but I’m in no rush to lose the spurs players

              B by a distance.

            Which move would you make for a -4

            A. Zaha + Son --> Jota + Sterling
            B. Zaha + Son --> JWP + Salah
            C. Just Zaha out for free?

            Already have KDB.

              C, wouldn't sell Son for a hit

                Don't like B for certain. C edges it over A I think

              Semedo to Dias for a hit worth it??

                Don't think so. Don't like hits for defenders usially

                Kane + Hames > Vardy + Bruno (-4)?

                Or just one of those transfers for free?

                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 10 days ago

                  Kane to vardy for free

                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 10 days ago

                  I'm guessing you can't afford Hames -> Bruno?

                    I can

                      3 months, 10 days ago

                      I'd do that then, Kane loves a London derby so I wouldn't take him out

                        Cheers. What I was leaning towards, but all of this Vardy love (justified love of course) on here is getting to me.

                Which move would you do to fund Son > KDB:
                A) Hames > Jota
                B) Kane > Vardy

                  I'd probably just do B and keep Son

                    Thanks. You mean hold Son long term? Or just for this game?

                Why might it be gameweeks 18 and 19 that are the blanks / double gameweeks?

                  Good team! Just make sure you have a plan to bring back Salah as Jota is not a Salah cover
