Top 10k managers not yet sold on Man City assets as Gameweek 10 splits captaincy

The Gameweek 10 captaincy debate looks destined to cause a drastic re-shaping of the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers.

That’s because there is no standout candidate for the armband this week, according to analysis on LiveFPL.net.

Rather than one or two individuals breaking away from the chasing pack, there is an unprecedented five-way split of similarly backed captains – which is sure to create serious rank movement at this level.

As you can see, Jamie Vardy (£10.2m) was the top 10k’s favourite for the armband ahead of a favourable home meeting with Fulham’s naive and obliging defence.

However, only 21.1% were happy backing the Leicester man, the rest perhaps swayed by the disparity between his home and away form (only one of his 10 attacking returns have come at the King Power Stadium this season) or maybe enticed by the array of other options.

Mohamed Salah‘s (£12.2m) midweek appearance, a first outing since returning from self-isolation, has convinced 16.1% of the top 10k that he can be trusted against Brighton.

Prior to his positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test, the Egyptian had returned in four of his previous five Premier League appearances.

But the recent double-figure haul from Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m), combined with Leeds’ recent drubbings, means that a further 15.7% chose the Everton man as captain.

Meanwhile, 14.7% went with away-day specialist Bruno Fernandes (£10.8m), with double-figure hauls in every road-trip this season and Harry Kane (£11.0m), despite facing Chelsea’s improved defence, still managed to attract 14.5% of the top 10k’s captain armbands.

The impact of such a concertinaed captaincy spread on effective ownership is fascinating too.

It means no player can boast a figure in this department over 100% for Gameweek 10, Calvert-Lewin going closest with 96.3%.

Once again, tough fixtures have not triggered a flash sale of Spurs assets among the top 10k, Kane and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) sitting inside the top three for effective ownership at this level.

What these figures mean is that Gameweek 10 is the perfect week to have tried something different, considering that going against the so-called “crowd” carries considerably less risk than usual. As a result, making such a decision carries a higher chance of bigger green arrows if successful.

It is particularly telling that no Manchester City player featured in the top five captains at this level, despite a favourable match-up with Burnley.

The Clarets have lost their last three trips to the Etihad Stadium (in all competitions), every time by a 5-0 scoreline.

If Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) benefits from Saturday afternoon’s outing, he will reward only a small number of captainers in the top 10k.

Just 6.6% of them felt confident enough to hand the Belgian their armband, while only 1.1% captained Raheem Sterling (£11.5m).

In fact, not a single Manchester City player appears in the template at this level yet, despite Pep Guardiola’s men embarking on their appealing fixture run this Gameweek.

After hosting Burnley, Manchester City welcome Fulham, West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle to the Etihad Stadium between now and Gameweek 15, but only 19.5% of the top 10k are invested in De Bruyne, the Citizens most popular player among such managers.

Son, Fernandes remain the most fashionable premium options in midfield while Salah and Diogo Jota (£6.7m) are the movers and shakers, replacing Wilfried Zaha (£7.3m) and James Rodríguez (£7.9m) in the template.

Unsurprisingly, there was much less fluctuation among the defenders and forwards.

Calvert-Lewin has overtaken Kane as the most popular striker in the top 10k, now owned by 80% of them while the Spurs man saw his backing drop by a margin of 10 percentage points. 

Patrick Bamford (£6.1m) holds onto the third-place spot meaning Vardy remains outside the podium for top 10k ownership.

Meanwhile, the top-five defenders remain unchanged, with minimal shifts in top 10k ownership.

Just 23% of the managers in this rank bracket have gone chipless thus far in the campaign while 46.4% have deployed exactly one.

Interestingly, 2.3% of them have already exhausted their entire supply.

Once again, the Wildcard was the most popular chip for the latest Gameweek although it was used sparingly compared to the rest of the top 10k.

With 2.9% going for the Free Hit, 3.7% pulled the trigger on brand new squads for Gameweek 10.

Interestingly, those playing the Wildcard at this level have largely templated themselves to the overall selection picture, as you can see a large number of overlaps.

Despite the tougher fixtures, Son and Kane still feature heavily in these squads, as do Salah and Jota while João Cancelo (£5.5m) and Vardy are the big exceptions to the main template.

    Joelinton's shot for the goal was pathetic. Such a lucky deflection. Didn't deserve a goal.

        The three dudes that own him are happy but wondering if he is #2 or #3 on the bench

        It was never going wide. Jesus do you need glasses? Lol. It was on target put was a pathetic strike for a premier league level striker.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE

          1 month, 26 days ago

          Ok fair, just watched it again. Looked he’d dragged it potentially wide at first glance.

          I was watching on a 60” as well! Facepalm

        Didn't change direction much, Guaita should have stopped it.

      Agreed...easy save by the keeper but for the deflection.

    4. Bennerman

      Loads of crap shots have gone in or been deflected in. What's with the bile?

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Deflected shots should be spectacular like 5 of Villa's against Liverpool!

        The bile? Lol. I just have an issue with supposed premier league level strikers being paid a fortune and cant even strike the ball properly.

        1. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Sounds fairly bilious, yeah.

        I know I know, 3 big reds in a row have made me this way. I’m disappointed in myself

      Sadly that's probably the end of him as a differential.

      Yes if you’re frozen in time.

      Always awful when that happens, so I don’t rub it in when it happens to others

      PvA do what PvA does. Ditch him and move on. I did. Feels better now.

    5. Troll hunter

      Yes, his total is 9 😉

      1. Troll hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        This season so far... But he has been good tbh. I would keep one more week.

  5. Jdpz

    My Purchase Price of Kane: 10.5m
    Present Selling Price: 10.7m
    Current Price: 11.0m

    If Kane's price drops to 10.9M, the selling price will still be 10.7m? Yes?

    1. Troll hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Yes

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Yes

    3. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      If the difference between the purchase price and the sell price is an odd number, you will not lose .1 on selling price if a player dropped. If it is an even number, you do.

  6. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years

    I propose a change to the defensive points system:

    4 points for a clean sheet as is but 2 points deducted for each goal conceded.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      So defenders get 4 points in a 1-1

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        So 6 points for defender appearance points over 60 minutes?

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          1 point for playing
          1 point at 60 mins
          4 for a clean sheet

          But instead of losing 4 points upon conceding you lose 2.
          The downside is each goal conceded after that is also a minus 2

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            But there was no CS so 2-2?

          2. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Oh ok, still meh.

          3. Tinkermania
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 26 days ago

            If a defender's team loses 4-0, he will be deducted -8 and end up on -6 points. A bit extreme your proposal. At the moment they get 0.

            1. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Would score -2 for 4 goal conceded it seems

              1. KAPTAIN KANE
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                Yes - 6 points would be their base score asssuming they hit 60 mins, -2 for any goals conceded during the game

      2. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        How many points in a 0-0, 6 + bonus, meh

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Less drama less moaning less hysteria ... not FPL is it?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Good point.
        I also guess you could argue it’s 4 points for a striker goal, so fair that a defender also loses 4 points for losing a clean sheet

      2. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        this, we need shocking defender scores to set people apart. Plus premium defenders would be even more powerful. TAA for instance would be getting mega points (when in form)

    3. Troll hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      We are playing the game, not making the rules. But if there was a flaw big enough, somebody else could start better fantasy game... Not gonna happen imo.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Of course, be good to have a forum to recommend things though, especially around the chips etc

        1. Troll hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Yes, but no-one listens... Chips haven't changed for a while.

        2. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 26 days ago

          you can try and email them, doubt you will get a reply tho. I think they read tho, I have emailed them before about things.

    4. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Guaita would still get 1 point every game, whats the difference?

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        😆

    5. teneighty
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      So defenders get 4 points even before the game starts. I'm confused...

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Don't worry just focus on GW11 😉

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I’ve messed this up above but my thinking:

        1 point for starting
        5 points for playing 60 mins

        But every goal conceded is minus 2

    6. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      So if a team concede it isn’t a clean sheet so they wouldn’t get four points, then you would like to deduct two more points for each goal rather than one point for two goals. Would be in - points.

      1. Tinkermania
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        8 points deducted for losing 4-0. Extreme, isn't?

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          They would be on -2:

          Assuming they play 60 their base points would be 6, then -8 for goal deductions.

          I think it would penalise picking cheap defenders from poor teams more.

          1. caldracula
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Why should they get more points for playing 60 minutes than players in other positions?

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              I guess on average, most teams concede 1 goal a game, so it’s to compensate for that fact.

          2. caldracula
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            We have to pick some of the cheaper options because we start with a budget.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Of course, but the difference between say a 4.5 at Fulham vs one at say Newcastle is close points total wise. But would be vastly different in this approach.

              I have just thought though, it could end up actually rewarding non playing players more than those that start!

        2. caldracula
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Going by this PVA would have scored -2 tonight, seems harsh. Don’t think he thought this one through properly.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Maybe but on the flip side, you get 4 points instead of 2 if your team concedes one silly annoying goal in the last minute.

            Teams however who get pummelled, you end up being punished more

  7. SHOOTER MCGINN
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Rank dropped more from taking a hit then it did from that game.

    1. Troll hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Yes, and that is good news! Rival benched Wilson and started Guaita and PvA, because having all of them is not good...

      1. SHOOTER MCGINN
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Haha that's brilliant. I'm sure they don't think so, but good for you

        1. Troll hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          I mean he is one of those managers who refuses to play his attack vs his def in same fixture if he can avoid. There is certain logic in that, but it doesn't work like that in real life.

      2. TheCurseOfRaheem
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Aha, very nice! Worked the other way for me, own PvA, ML leader has Wilson. Huge swing of points!

        1. Troll hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          You have been unlucky with PvA, he has been excellent. I have watched every second he has played this year. I was considering transferring him in also myself, but I had Zaha and fixture change after Wba was the issue.

          1. TheCurseOfRaheem

            1 month, 26 days ago

            Cheers mate, always enjoy owning him and seem to catch his hauls but this one has been bleak haha. Feels rubbish at the moment after being so close to points this week but fingers crossed for one last hurrah vs WBA!

      Would you believe my team is in such dire straits that I had to use a -8 to bring in KDB, Jamal & Wilson! REJOICE!

      1. Warbling Wendy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Well, tonight's game was a good lesson for me in not following the score and bonus throughout the game for a defender.

    Own PVA, see he's on 3/2 baps all half, misses a golden chance for an assist then concedes two goals a couple of minutes later. Feel well gutted over pts I never had!

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Simple pass to Batman would have been a 12.

      1. TheCurseOfRaheem
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I was following the updates and that update was literally followed by the Wilson goal haha. Sickener.

    2. HVT
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      No point sticking with PVA, he’s come unstuck mate.

      1. wulfranian

        West Brom is a good game.Would you sell him?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Holding one more week but he's gone after that for me. Been a failed punt.

        2. HVT
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Newc was a good game too, Anchorage bias is not your solution

  13. Whiskerz
    • 7 Years

    Gutted. Was convinced I'd capped Bruno and didn't check pre deadline. Salah it is then, could be worse I guess.

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Could be a lot worse

    2. HVT

      Gutted I made deadline and (c) Vardy....
      Oh wait, there’s a party starting....

    3. nico05

        We'll see come game time

  14. Stormbringer22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Which premium player is it that you are worried about not owning this week? Salah for me

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Probably Bruno or KDB, but not expecting either to haul too much.

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I expect both of them to, hence why I have capped KDB and brought in Bruno against Soton 😛 Can't have them all after all!

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Bruno form wise worrys me the most, KDB doesnt concern me too much this week, vs Fulham he will.
          Might think about ditching Werner for Bamford or Antonio and seeing if I can get KDB in somehow

          1. Stormbringer22
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 26 days ago

            See how it goes against Burnley. I think you will need him for Fulham

      2. HVT
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Bruno 8pts.

        KDB 16pts.

    2. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      KDB

      1. Whiskerz
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Vardy too, but to a lesser extent

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Not that bothered about Vardy (famous last words) Don't have him and I expect him to do well, but couldn't justify selling Kane for a hit

    3. Free Hat
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Same.
      Brighton looks ideal team for Liv way of play.

    4. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      From EO perspective Salah and Kane ... but think that my team have enough players to counter

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        That's just it. So many options right now. As long as your assets manage to counter the big haul of the GW you are fine

    5. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Sterling

  15. Free Hat
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Kuddos to them. And no ill feelings towards Newcastle.

    But seeing them in 10th place with 14 points, above teams like city, united, leeds...(more attacking minded)

    With the way I see them play most of the time, I almost cant believe it.

  16. DA Minnion
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Wilson wasn't even fit to be on the bench last week when I owned him. Of course I got rid .

    1. mrelpea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Me too! In hindsight decision to keep Watkins instead was terrible

      1. DA Minnion
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I got Vardy and kept Kane.so we'll see.

      2. The Train Driver
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Watkins can still outscore him.

        1. mrelpea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Very true, especially with the decent fixtures they have in next few weeks

    2. TheCurseOfRaheem
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Wouldn't be too hard on yourself - was a logical move to make. Always hurts though.

      1. DA Minnion
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Kept sterling too so hopefully your name isn't another bad omen.lol

  17. faux_C

    Lol my Wilson to Bamford move looked good for 88 minutes at least.

  18. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    An option to free up money is to go for Wilson in place of DCL gw 12-14 and then go for Antonio gw15-19 and then back to DCL

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Could well pay off

    2. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I don't have bamford yet, and feel like he could be a bit more fixture-proof to save me 2FTs.

      1. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        i own him he is undroppable

  19. Dele

        What do you think?

        1. Would Ed Woodward

      Hold your WC, you can fix it in a couple weeks mate for a few hits.

      Priority to remove in order:

      1. ASM
      2. Egan
      3. Davis

      Thanks all for your replies....I decided to pull the trigger!

  21. Deulofail
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Feeling pretty good for next gameweek already. 2FTs and nothing to do yet. Hopefully just a luxury transfer like Gabriel > James after a fantastic GW10!

    Martinez
    Bellerin Lamptey Justin
    Sterling KDB Fernandes Grealish Jota
    Martial DCL

    Button | Gabriel, Mitchell, Brewster

    0.2 ITB. That said, I'll probably be desperate to get rid of Martial, and worried about Justin so end up doing a mini wildcard.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      That's a nice looking team you have there.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Yes, there’s just something about 3-5-2s that looks so saucy

        1. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Probably because we all know deep inside that budget forward options are more hopeful than valuable

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      yea nice team, Martial does look the odd one out lol

      1. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        If he suddenly comes good I'm going to look like a genius for missing those deadlines while he was suspended

  22. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Early, but any ideas on how to get KDB into this?
    Was thinking to downgrade Werner, but there isnt anyone I want to lose in midfield really.

    What do you do when you want a player but dont have anyone you want to lose (bar Werner, he can go).

    Fab
    James - Chilwell - KWP
    Son - Grealish - Salah - Jota
    Werner - Kane - DCL
    (Nyland, Bissouma, Lamptey, Ferguson) 0.6 itb

    1. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I would happily sell Kane and Son, with Vardy, Bamford etc decent alternative, but I'm and Arsenal fan.

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I’d try to make a different City asset

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        hmm yea could maybe think about Kun, 0.3 off a straight swap annoyingly. No one else tempting me at all tbh, Mahrez has no form whatsoever.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          James to Cancelo? Though I know you probably want to target their attack

          1. Trophé Mourinho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 26 days ago

            double Chelsea defence just isnt leaving my team, those two are so attacking.
            Am tempted to add Robbo/Reguillon or a City defender though if Jota doesnt work out (as in move to a back 4).

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Fair

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Kane > fodder to Bissouma > KDB?
      Alternatively Werner > Jesus for one week punt?
      I am doing Son > KDB got enough ITB

    4. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Thanks guys, yea looks like Spurs player would have to make way.

    5. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Still think Jota is going to rotate a lot ; with Mane rested for Brighton it seems Jota will play and then maybe get his rest game against Ajax so that could work out from an FPL standpoint. . . but given the gulf in money to KDB I'm not sure Jota helps. . . has to be Son right?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I think against the lesser teams Jota plays instead of Firmino, and vice versa for more difficult opposition

      2. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Son has 57% ownership, scary to lose. But yes looks like Son would be the one to make way

        Not wihing an injury on anyone and certainly not Son as I support Spurs, but an injury to one of my mids would make the decision for me

  23. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    how come Wilson EO% is 11.1% in the top 10k. that's too much, I don't get it

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      56 points for the season.

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      He's had a good season so there'll be teams there that started with him.

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Dead jammy teams still own him. Lots of them in top 10k

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

      Most of your team has 2 games before GW11.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        you talking injuries?

        i have the exact funds for
        Barkley > Foden
        Rodriguez > Son

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Both could get injured or others in your team.

    1. Dele
      • 4 Years

      Wilson won’t be playing palace every week

        He also looked abject until the 88th minute.

          In what respect? He'd hardly seen the ball.

          One chance, one goal. Plus a bonus assist.

          What was abject about his performance, apart from a centre-forward with very little to work with for most of the game?

            Come on then, what aspects of his performance were 'abject'?

            You usually give us the benefit of your wisdom with a few unsolicited sermons, so I'm giving you the platform to explain to us mortals why Wilson was abject? (For 88 minutes, then I guess his performance changed because he got a chance?)

    I knew I should have started Lewis ahead of Chilwell/Coufal. Hindsight!

      Oh I just saw fixtures, only 3 for me. Jota, (S)alah and DCL. At least my cap playing I guess and I get to see how Jota works out instead of waiting to see

    Getting Guaita is easily the worst decision I've made this year.
    And I do not mean just FPL wise.

      Im starting to experience a visceral all consuming hatred just thinking about him

      Worth a transfer to go Mitchell to Jamal Lewis? Can’t see Mitchell starting from now own but I’m not sure its worth a transfer as my fifth defender

        I feel 4 defenders are good enough. Obviously having the option of 5th is better. But you are very rarely going to play him unless he's part of a 3-way rotation or you plan to play 4 at the back.

        Only way I'd make the move is if you have a transfer to burn
