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.

    Baffled on my wildcard boys and girls

    Feel like I have a good team but never hauls... so pulled the trigger.

    A) Rashford Son Brewster
    B) Son Werner bissohma

    ...Use funds and get Jota or keep salah...

    Not even going to get into my defence. All I know is McCarthy chilwell and kilman stay.. lamptey KWP and Justin’s future are up in the air (got them all at 4.5 so value held in all)

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Not particularly keen on Rashford or Werner, but A of those

      1. QUEN
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Few weeks both or one of them will be the next commodity. Tbh thinking of dumping son for both of them

  3. Atimis
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Worth keeping Son and Hamez ?

    Could get KDB/Salah in place of Son

    or

    Sterling in place of Hamez

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      For free or for a hit?

  4. Tomas_brolin
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    I’m sticking with Son and Kane and going without City and Vardy

    Martinez
    Chilwell Coufal PVA
    Fernandes Salah Son Grealish Soucek
    DCL Kane

    Steer Kilman KWP Brewster

    GTG?

    GTG

    1. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yes

    2. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Capping Salah?

  5. Sanchit
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Kane to Vardy(C) ?

  6. Sanchit
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Best replacement for Digne?

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I have Chilwell and Robertson as my other 2 defenders

    2. cutch
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      What's the problem with Digne? Is he injured?

      1. Third Eye Vision
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yeah. Expected to be out for two months.

    3. Davew88
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Need to replace him myself now... thinking one of the Leicester boys?

  7. Super Saints
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Anything worth a hit? Had to do Zaha to Jota, loads ITB.

    Martinez
    KWP Justin Coufal
    Bruno(c) Son Grealish Jota
    Kane Vardy DCL
    Steer Mitchell Stephens Lamptey

    1. TorresMagic™

      Save unless you want a premium mid.

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Thanks, will probably have to do Son to Salah at some point

    2. FPLGOOD
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Mitchell to Robertson if enough of loads

  8. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Jrod out for Jota done or wait one more gw?

  9. fpl_tp95
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Is captaining Bamford crazy? Don't have salah or man City assets, but do have Bruno...

    1. Man Chest Hair United
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Risky not crazy.

      I would go Bruno

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Probably

    3. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Look at Bruno's away form

    4. Tinkermania
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      A worthy risk. Bamford can bag a brace at Everton and it wouldn't be a surprise.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Crazy. Bruno is a top tier captain this week imo.

    6. FPLGOOD
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Not crazy but stupid if your aiming for maximum points

      If you wanna watch leeds game and cheer for bamfs then do it

    7. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I’m thinking of captaining Dominic for the first time.

  10. Alexis Nonsense
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Any good defenders at 4.5 or below over the next 10?

    Can't find one with decent fixtures besides Villa, and with Martinez in goal I don't want the double up

    1. Man Chest Hair United
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Palace and Newcastle have decent fixtures

      1. Rash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I've had PVA for weeks to catch his "good fixtures" been a disaster

  11. Man Chest Hair United
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Too risky?

    Out Kane Son Foden
    In KDB Salah Bamford -4

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Risky but I like it longterm

    2. BeWater
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Over the course of a few weeks that could well pay off.

        1. Man Chest Hair United
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Cheers that’s my thinking

      • Tinkermania
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Looks good. Think it can pay straight away.

      • Frucke
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I like your style. I dont have the guts to do that move

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Can’t decide!! Best move? Mixed responses last time. 1FT

      A. Kane >> Vardy(C)
      B. Son+JRod >> KDB(C)+Jota (-4)
      C. Save FT

      McCarthy
      Chilwell, Cresswell, Justin
      Bruno, Ziyech, JRod, Grealish, Son
      Kane, DCL
      (4.0, Saiss, Mitchell, Davis)

      1. Man Chest Hair United
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        B

    4. MikeBravo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Anyone know if Aguero looked sharp in his 15 minute sub appearance last night?

    5. BENOIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Hmmm, best option for the run of City fixtures?

      A) Kane ——> Jesus/Aguero
      B) Podence & Kane ——> KDB & Brewster (-4)
      C) Podence, Bruno, Kane —> KDB, Soucek, Vardy (-8) 

      1. Man Chest Hair United
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        None of those look appealing.

        A would be good if we knew kun would start

      2. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Wouldn’t sacrifice Kane for other than Vardy. Expensive City attackers have to prove that they are back to free scoring first. Don’t Think it’s only the fixtures’ fault that city has scored few goals lately

    6. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Worth another -4 to sell Zaha, or just play Bissouma?

      Martinez
      Zouma, Balbuena, Taylor
      Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Bissouma
      Kane, Vardy (c), DCL

      Subs: Steer, Mitchell, Lamptey, Zaha

      1. Man Chest Hair United
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Keep Zaha good fixtures coming

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Agree

      2. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Get jota? Taylor and bissouma combined won't get 5 points

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Would cost me 4 points to get Jota in, and not impossible that he’s subbed in and gets 1 point. If he scores, 6 points. But Think I would want Zaha over Jota the week after fir nailedness and pens the week after, would then cost me 4 points and A transfer. But he could also start, get 3 points for cs, 5 points for A goal and 3 bonus points, 11 points...

      3. FPLGOOD
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Zaha to Ziyech if you have the cash

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Only 7.6

      4. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I wouldn’t hold zaha has one good fixture against an improving West Brom and that’s after having Covid and not playing for almost a month, after that the fixtures are grim

      5. AlpoShearer
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Sell Zaha

    7. Bennyboy1907
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Who scores more this season?

        Pick 4

        A) Kane
        B) Vardy
        C) Salah
        D) Bruno
        E) KDB
        F) Werner
        G) Sterling
        H) Son

          1. Man Chest Hair United
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Agree

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Think you’re right, but city has yet to start so could also be ACDB

        2. FPLGOOD
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Points?

          Hcde

          Or

          Acdh

      • AlternativeB
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Kane to Vardy (Vardy cap) for a hit?

        • The Red Devil
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Guaita
          Robertson kilman zouma
          Son Fernandes Ziyech grealish
          Watkins DCL Kane

          Nyland Taylor burke dunne
          1 FT 3.3 ITB

          A- Kane to Vardy
          B- son to kdb
          C- Kane & son to Vardy & kdb (-4)
          D- son to Salah
          E- Ziyech & Watkins to Vardy & jota (-4)

          Mostly doing A
          B&C are quite tempting

          1. RamaJama
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            B or D

          2. FPLGOOD
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Very nice team.

            Probably would do

            Son to kdb or
            Dunne to City defender or
            Kane, burke to Kdb, brewster (personally like 5 mid this season, but this is maybe not worth a hit really..)

            But city coverage is the only thing you are missing imo

        • HurriKane
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Vardy Faces 4 of the leakiest defence in next 4 fixtures. So Tasty !!

          (FUL shu BHA EVE)

          Most goals conceded in pl so far

          1. Fulham / Westbrom (18)
          2. Leeds (17)
          3. Everton Liverpool (16)
          4. Brighton Sheffield Newcastle (15)

          We should be expecting Vardy Party in the following month right?

              You must be an xg.fanboy?

              Go on and ignore the obvious. He got form and fixtures. Please enlighten me why he's a bad option?

        • boroie
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Feels mad to take out Fernandes right now but feel like I need City assets.

          Fernandes to KDB/Sterling, yes or no?

          Does Dias go up for set pieces? How is his past scoring record?

          How did Vardy look today?

            He looked sharp.

              Came on after hour, scored last minute and celebrated by kicking corner flag

            I'm excited to join the Vardy party honestly. This is a big chance to claw back points against the top 10K. Most of the top 10K are Kane loyalists. We saw it last week when he had 113% EO in the top 10K even when playing against City. Kane perma cappers.

            If things go the way they should regarding the fixture swing, it'll really shrink their lead and separate the blind Spurs faithful from the genuinely good FPL managers.

                Keeping Kane instead of -4 for Vardy, massive decision

                  It's the easier decision. I think the hit is worth it though. The stats say it is, the fixtures say it is. Let's see if it works!
