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.

    Kane to Vardy for a hit?

    1. RamaJama

      Not for A hit

    2. Frucke
      • 6 Years

      Nooo

    3. AC Yew

      No way

  2. Forcella Boys

    Is bringing in Salah & Vardy for Zaha & Kane worth -4 hit?

    1. Flynny
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 10 days ago

      Yes

      1. Forcella Boys

          Kane to Vardy or
          Kane and Son to KDB and Bamford -4? (Frees up cash for Salah back)

          Martinez
          Robbo Dias Chilwell
          Son Grealish Jota Bruno Ziyech
          Kane DCL

            Didn't you already use your FT this week on Dias?

              Btw, I'm surprised you followed my lead and did Foden > Jota. What a good move that has proven to be!

          Cake walk for spuds against 8 players with Covid and 3 local villagers

          Son and son stay glued to the bench for a rest id of thought, might jog around for 20 mins

          Jimenez (ars) to Adams (mu) or wait a week ?

          Vardy or Bruno captain?

          1. Corona is not good 4 U
              3 months, 10 days ago

              Vardy for sure in my opinion.

            • balint84
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 10 days ago

              Vardy looks safer.

              Vardy

          2. Corona is not good 4 U
              3 months, 10 days ago

              Kane -> Vardy
              or
              Fernandes -> Salah?

              Thank you!

              Vardy is definitely blanking because I'm captaining him

                Will be a meltdown on here :). There has been games were Leicester have won easily with no Vardy involvement.

                  Seems certain he blanks tbh

                    I think am not going to get him( i would have to take a -4), but i am expecting him to score or assist.

              Kane might be dropped with Vinicius in such blistering form. Looks like casuals who sell Kane this week might get an early christmas present...

                Haha, he looks absolutely dreadful but i think you could get a brace against this lot and not spill your coffee

              Hamez + Kane > Bruno + Vardy locked in. Terrible week to take a hit, but f@ck it, you only live once! Hoping those + KDB (C) pays off this week.

                I’m captaining him too...need a good week!!

              This is the toughest week for transfers, premiums out for premiums, for hits in many cases, gonna end in tears.

              Got no idea what to do.

                Played this game for years and there are some tough choices this week. am struggling to decide what to do

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Martinez
              Robertson Chilwell Mitchell*
              Bruno Ziyech Son Zaha*
              Kane Wilson DCL

              Steer Dallas Bissouma KWP

              1 ft 1.8itb

              Zaha to Jota seems the obvious move, but with no city, leicester or other pool attack, and ropey defence - anything worth a hit?

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

              Rashford to KDB worth a hit? (Have Bruno, not convinced by double Utd)

              1. No Professionals
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 10 days ago

                Depends what the other part of the hit is?

                Have exactly the same dilemma mate, been back and forth with it all week and still cannot decide!!! Haha

                • 2 Years

                Absolutely not. Rashford captain material

              Pick 3 to play out of

              Semedo
              Keane
              Chilwell
              Dallas

              Any ideas would be welcomed

                Yes, he promised Rashford to give him next pen already last week, to give him the self confidence back. Luckily it didn’t happen in A PL match

              Keep Son and get rid of Hamez?

                3 months, 10 days ago

                I got rid of Son and kept Hamez. Look at his home game record when Richarlison is fit.

                What should I do about Mane?

                I don't have Salah or KDB yet, is the change worth a -4? I'm afraid Mane could get rested this week?

                What to do here?

                1 FT, 1.0 ITB

                Mane(VC) Fernandes Ziyech Grealish
                Vardy(C) DCL Watkins

                Forster; N.Williams Targett Bissouma

                Feel like I need City attacking cover...

                1. BeWater
                    3 months, 10 days ago

                    Decent team. Probably wouldn't do anything. Only way to Sterling or KDB for free is taking out Bruno/Mane which I wouldn't do. After that you are looking at taking a hit which I also wouldn't do.

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

                      This is my issue... used my WC last week with the intention of using my transfer this week to go Fernandes to Sterling but now I’m not so sure...

                      1. BeWater
                          3 months, 10 days ago

                          I had enough of not owning Bruno and got him 4 weeks ago. 3, 2, 17 & 11 points. He's just involved in everything. He could have had a couple of assists too v WBA. I think his potential increases when Martial, Greenwood and Cavani get up and running.

                    With Digne out who is the likely left back? Surely Baines cant start every week.

                    a) Castagne b) Diaz or c) Cancelo and why? a) for the next 3 games looks very tempting to me but seeing lots of love for the other two here?

                      C. Hes most chances in a city side that has exquisite fixtures until early February

                    3 months, 10 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? Thanks

                    Mane risk at rest or will they be looking at a bounce back against Brighton?

                        Saiss and Foden out?

                          Saiss for sure, think foden is worth risking the next 2

                          Saiss and son to Coufal and KDB?

                            You know the Son risk, otherwise decent.

                        2 because am not a great fan of the double villa attack.

                      Which two would you go for on WC...

                      A - Salah
                      B - Fernandes

                      Is Digeo Jota a regular starter now?

                        Until his next benching.

                          Not worth bringing in so?

                            Supersub works for him too.

                          I have him but don't think he's a sure starter. Will be interesting to see what happens when Thiago and Henderson are available. I can't see Klopp benching one of Wijnaldum/Thiago/Hendo on a regular basis to accomdate the other 4. I also can't see him benching Firmino for prolonged periods.

                        If you could have any 2 of these 3 which would you go for...

                        A - Salah
                        B - Fernandes
                        C - Sterling
