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.

    Richarlison deserves a benching next game after this sort of a performance. 🙄

    Who is (or will be) Chelsea’s key attacking asset(s)? I’m looking to ship out JRod and wondering whether to gamble on Pulisic so soon after coming back from injury, whether I should go with current favourite - Ziyech - or someone else?! I sold Werner for Vardy this week with a view to getting a Chelsea midfielder soon. Thoughts welcome. TIA

    1. djoker_nole

      only Werner

    2. diesel001

      Ziyech. Just be prepared for a bumpy ride.

    3. Miguel Sanchez

      Pulisic will be carefully used when he returns and his minutes and whether or not he starts will be a constant source of frustration. Go Ziyech or Mount even.

    4. ivantys

      I would gamble on Havertz

      Happy days

  4. Super Saints
    • 5 Years

    Bumford

  5. LewanGOALski

    big fat 6 points from 3 today... 😐

  6. tafrère
    • 5 Years

    F off

  7. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years

    Bam Bam does a Blank Blank

  8. Stupendous
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Hames to Jota or Mahrez???

    I own Salah and Torres

      Depends on midweek.

      1. Stupendous
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Fair

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

      I would say Mahrez for fixtures

  9. Henning
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    Stupid to do DCL, Zaha and Rodriguez to KDB Wilson and Jota right?

    1. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Deadline was yesterday.

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

      Getting rid of DCL after his 2nd blank in 10 games is probably a bit premature

    3. the_duke
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Don't ditch DCL yet, other 2 100%

      • Stupendous
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        I dont think that's stupid. They've all got the form and fixtures so it's hardly points chasing either!

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

        Looks good to me

      • Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        For -4 I think those are good moves

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

      Horrific FPL Saturday. Sunday and Monday to redeem?

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

        These spread out games over several days make it very hard to judge your week until the final match played

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

          True

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

      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

    6. Dosh
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Kalvin Phillips really makes Leeds tick

    7. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Beautiful Bamford blank.

    8. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Meslier you beauty grab another save I'm greedy af

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

      Disappointing from Bamford. Expected something in this game...

      1. Utopsis
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 24 days ago

        He's so un-clinical. He really should be scoring that one Pickford saved with his feet

    10. Railwayman
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      DCL. Hamez, Bamford in my team = 6 points.

      Dallas on my bench = 8 points.

      Simple question, what to do with Hamez and Bamford ? Sell both or first one, then monitor the other one for one more week?

      1. Noah’s Ark
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Wilson for Bamford seems logical enough

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

        Why would you sell Bamford? I will probably buy him in GW12/13

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

          He is looking more and more like the player who missed 30+ big chances last season in Championship, that is the reason.

    11. tafrère
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Going for Vardy (C) and Hamez instead of KDB (C) and Wilson such a defining moment of my season so far.

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

        Calm down, Vardy hasn’t even Played yet

        1. tafrère
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Even 30 pts from him will only match the other two.

    12. Pedram
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Pickford turned into Buffon

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

      Think it may be time to go for Leeds defence lads

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        If Lamptey continues to frustrate I might look at Dallas

      2. tafrère
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Lol they should have concede like 3 goals.

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

      How many bonus for Dallas?

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

        2

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years

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

      DCL blank is a little meh, but isn't he highly captained overall? Silver linings.

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

        Yes 96% ownership I believe

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

      Pickford with a top safe at the end lol

    17. sergioaguero67
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Choose one

      A) Vardy + Grealish
      B) Wilson + Bruno Fernandes

      Please help

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

      How did James Rodriguez look tonight?

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

        Handsome enough, IMO...

          Haha! I bet. Sell or hold? Have DCL

      2. Plant Based FPLer

        A little sluggish but motivated.

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

          Thoughts on moving him for Jota and Son for KdB?

          No salah... have kane

          1. Plant Based FPLer
            • 4 Years
            10 months, 23 days ago

            There are a bunch of fixtures still to pan out, including champions league. Jota certainly is in better form than Rodriguez. Son is on par with KDB.

      Cheeky 8 points from Dallas. I think my Leeds DF double up is going to come into its own over Christmas

      DCL blank isn't great but his EO is around 70% overall so it doesn't particularly matter that much
