Calvert-Lewin and Bamford the Fantasy focus as Everton host Leeds

Everton’s Gameweek 10 meeting with Leeds is a tale of two forwards as far as Fantasy Premier League managers are concerned.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.9m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.1m) are owned by 60.9% and 35% of teams respectively and, unsurprisingly, bot start for their respective sides at Goodison Park.

While Leeds have gone with an unchanged XI from their 0-0 draw with Arsenal, Carlo Ancelotti has been forced into some alterations for Everton.

He sticks with the 3-4-2-1 shape used in the 3-2 win at Fulham but replaces the injured Lucas Digne (£6.2m) with Tom Davies (£5.3m) at left wing-back.

Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) holds onto his right wing-back role while Mason Holgate (£4.8m) comes into captain the side from centre-back, in for Yerry Mina (£5.5m).

Leeds’ unchanged set-up means FPL defender Stuart Dallas (£4.5m) is likely to play in central midfield once again, with Ezgjan Alioski (£4.4m) around to cover him at left-back.

Fresh from hitting the woodwork against Arsenal, it’s a second consecutive start at right-midfield for Raphinha (£5.4m) at the expense of Hélder Costa (£5.5m).

Everton XI (3-4-2-1): Pickford; Keane, Holgate, Godfrey; T Davies, Allan, Doucouré, Iwobi; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Rodríguez.

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Alioski, Cooper, Koch, Ayling; K Phillips; Harrison, Dallas, Klich, Raphinha; Bamford.

    Dreadful day for my team then. No show for Cancelo and Sterling and 3 blanks. If you haven't played your wilcard yet, don't bother. It'll wreck your teams.

      Is this your team? Was about to post it and say what bad luck.

  6. Pedersen
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Why did i chose dcl as c

    1. Chucky
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      because he scored 2 last week?

      1. Pedersen
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        I even have Vardy, but chose him over...

        1. BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

        2. Chucky
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Because scoring 4 against Leeds should have been easy ...

    3. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Blame those knees

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        It's the players around him - they're average enough, bar Hames and Richarlison (who is greedy)

        1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Not really.. just bad service today. Missing digne badly

  7. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Hames seller and Dallas coming in off the bench for Lamptey.
    Redeemed myself a little

  8. Niho992
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    According to irbox Everton will win the league, right?

  9. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Thank you Dallas for putting a smile on my face after PVA disaster yesterday.

  10. lordkippe
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    34 with Martinez, Chilwell, Fernandes, Grealish, Brewster & Coufal left. Complete disaster. Will be lucky to get to 50

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Go away

    2. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Show off

    3. RocketMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

    4. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      This should be banned.

    5. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      There’s always one. Boohoo I've got a bad score (secretly knowing it’s good). Poor me.

  11. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Majorly got away with it by selling Hamez > KDB as part of a hit.

    Another day, he gets 13 points. (Yes KDB could have gotten more too, but still).

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Ifs, buts and maybe’s. Shoulda woulda coulda.

  12. BOATIES FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Bottomed.. I'm not gonna pull the trigger yet put have no Man City at present.

    A) Bruno and Robbo to KDB Dias/Laporte
    B) Bruno and Kane to KDB Jesus
    C) Bruno and DCL to KDB and Bamford

    1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Ugh.. A if you must

      1. BOATIES FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        i don't know what to do, with the fixtures , Man City players could go on a tear

        1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Yeah tough for you.

          Keep Kane and DCL. losing Robbo with upcoming fixtures is risky but then CS is a big ask for liv nowadays imo

    2. jomikijiq
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      C

    3. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Would do second one but not Jesus. Robbo has nice fixtures coming up and DCL has burnley

  13. Hattrick Harry
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Not so good but changing Maupay to Bamford not so bad

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Maupay to anyone who as a good move.

  14. Flynny
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Come on Burke.

    Last on my bench - but a goal would mean is he a more reliable bench player .....felt like a dead option till now

  15. Big_Andy_GAWA
    • 10 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Kün to start vs. Fulham...??

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      He's had a setback. Kinda doubt it.

    2. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Never consider Aguero. Ever.

      1. Giggs Boson
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Historically bad advice.

        Too early though.

      2. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Whaaaaaaat??!!! #FPL legend. Can't wait to get him on board when he's looking like he might start... 😎

    3. Giggs Boson
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Never buy a player returning from injury or who is not 100% fit.

      One of my lessons this season. Jumped on Pulisic too soon.

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Sterling up top next week is my call

  16. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 24 days ago

    DCL Rodriguez blanks, will probably need Vardy to save my GW after tomorrow

  17. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Do we think KDB will rise tonight?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Yes

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Ok, I am getting him than most probably

  18. Baines on Toast...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    I think Everton will put a few past Burnley. The wingback system with Rodriguez more central is perfect for playing a deeper lying team.

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Burnley will beat Everton 1-0

  19. The Mandalorian
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Bamford should have gotten 3bps for missing so many chances.

  20. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Anyone joining me in Salah & KDB hockey cockey

  21. NABIL - I still got Tsimi

    Brewster to Vardy looking good so far

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

    2. Big_Andy_GAWA

      I need to get shot of Brewster. Lol.

    3. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Yep, Bamford to Vardy here.

      1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Sweet.

  22. BenDavies
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Rank hasn't suffered too much despite only 12 points so far. Rough week for everyone.

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Tomorrow will be absolutely pivotal. Need a Southampton and Chelsea masterclass

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Southampton masterclass and 3-3 in Chelsea / Spurs 😀

    2. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Hits galore

      1. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Clearly

    3. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Proud Mahrez owner here. Just wish I'd stuck the VC on him... 🙁

      1. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Congrats! Very patient owner....

      2. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Sweet. Well done

  23. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Why do people still want to sell Kane and Son? Blimey.

    Is Kane injured already? Is son Red carded already?

    1. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Poor fixtures and other premiums with better fixtures

      1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Ah. That fixtures argument.

        I managed to bring in Vardy and KDB this week while still keeping both Kane and Son.

        Attacking fixtures in s good. Class is permanent though.

        1. St Pauli Walnuts
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Presumably you brought in KDB and Vardy because of the fixtures?

  24. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Who should I bench from this front 8?

    Bruno Son Grealish Jota Torres
    Kane Vardy DCL

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Sorry to say but this headache is self inflicted
      Jota or Torres. Might be tough vs old team for Jota hard to say with midweek games

  25. Lucky Z
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Who is the best defender now 4.5 and below?

    1. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Masuaku?

      1. Lucky Z
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Also leaning to
