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.

      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      1. Pedersen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

          1 month, 21 days ago

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

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

    3. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1

      Blame those knees

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

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

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

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

  7. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

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

  8. Niho992
    • 2 Years

    According to irbox Everton will win the league, right?

  9. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

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

  10. lordkippe
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

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

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Go away

    2. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
      • 8 Years

    4. Salan

      This should be banned.

    5. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 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
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 21 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
      1 month, 21 days ago

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

  12. BOATIES FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 21 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 had 4 Spurs GW1
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Ugh.. A if you must

      1. BOATIES FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

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

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 21 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
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      C

    3. ivantys
        1 month, 21 days ago

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

    4. Hattrick Harry
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Not so good but changing Maupay to Bamford not so bad

      1. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Maupay to anyone who as a good move.

    5. Flynny
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 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

    6. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Kün to start vs. Fulham...??

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        He's had a setback. Kinda doubt it.

      2. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Never consider Aguero. Ever.

        1. Giggs Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Historically bad advice.

          Too early though.

        2. Big_Andy_GAWA
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

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

      3. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 21 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
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Sterling up top next week is my call

    7. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 21 days ago

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

    8. Daniel - NoFH, NoBB, NoTC, …
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Do we think KDB will rise tonight?

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Yes

        1. Daniel - NoFH, NoBB, NoTC, …
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Ok, I am getting him than most probably

    9. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1 month, 21 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
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Burnley will beat Everton 1-0

    10. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

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

    11. Daniel - NoFH, NoBB, NoTC, …
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Anyone joining me in Salah & KDB hockey cockey

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2. Big_Andy_GAWA

      3. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Yep, Bamford to Vardy here.

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Sweet.

    13. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 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 month, 21 days ago

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

        1. Big_Andy_GAWA
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Southampton masterclass and 3-3 in Chelsea / Spurs 😀

      2. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Hits galore

        1. BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Clearly

      3. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

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

        1. BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Congrats! Very patient owner....

        2. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Sweet. Well done

    14. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 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
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Poor fixtures and other premiums with better fixtures

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 21 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
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

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

    15. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Who should I bench from this front 8?

      Bruno Son Grealish Jota Torres
      Kane Vardy DCL

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 21 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

    16. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Who is the best defender now 4.5 and below?

      1. potatoace
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Masuaku?

        1. Lucky Z
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Also leaning to
