Neto and Podence strike as Wolves win overshadowed by serious Jiménez injury

Arsenal 1-2 Wolves

  • Goals: Gabriel (£5.1m) | Pedro Neto (£5.5m), Daniel Podence (£5.4m)
  • Assists: Willian (£7.6m) | Leander Dendoncker (£4.8m), Neto
  • Bonus points: Neto x3, Podence x2, Gabriel x1

GET WELL SOON RAÚL

Wolves 2-1 win over Arsenal was overshadowed by a sickening injury to Raúl Jiménez (£8.3m), who looks set for an extended period on the sidelines.

The Mexican forward sustained a heavy blow to the head from David Luiz (£5.5m) and required treatment on the pitch for 10 minutes before he was taken to hospital.

On Monday, the club’s official website revealed that Jiménez had fractured his skull and had undergone a successful operation overnight.

“He’s doing a scan now but he’s conscious, he’s OK. We are worried, of course. He speaks, he’s aware, but he’s doing a scan and now we have to have a proper assessment. He’s in good hands.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

“Raul is comfortable following an operation last night, which he underwent in a London hospital. He has since seen his partner Daniela and is now resting. He will remain under observation for a few days while he begins his recovery. The club would like to thank the medical staff at Arsenal, the NHS paramedics, hospital staff and surgeons who, through their skill and early response, were of such help.” – Wolves statement

During his two-and-a-half years at Wolves, Jiménez has fast become a Fantasy cult hero so it goes without saying that everyone at FFScout wishes him a speedy recovery and the best of health.

BACK OF THE NETO

It is to Wolves’ credit that they were able to focus themselves after witnessing such a serious injury befall one of their colleagues.

“We were massively worried when it happened, you knew straight away it was serious. We hope David Luiz is OK as well. It was a horrible clash of heads, this happens in football, but you don’t like to see it. You’ve got to [refocus]. We had 80 minutes left of the game, so you’ve got to. You go and play and hope you get the win for Raul. We had to do it for him, he’s a massive part of this football club, he’s a massive friend to every single one of us in that changing room.” – Conor Coady

Pedro Neto (£5.5m) was the chief of these as he involved himself in both of Wolves’ goals, his 13-point haul making him the club’s top-scoring FPL asset for the season.

In fact, it was also enough to propel the Portuguese international into the top 10 scorers among all midfielders and, crucially, he is also the cheapest among those.

Costing just £5.5m, Neto has offered 9.3 points per million spent in 2020/21, 1.9 more than similar-priced colleague Daniel Podence (£5.4m), who also netted his second goal of the season against Arsenal.

With Liverpool (away) and Chelsea (home) two of Wolves’ next three opponents, and Spurs (home) and Manchester United (away) waiting in Gameweeks 15 and 16, it is a little while until Wolves attackers will be on our radar again.

However, Nuno’s men face Brighton (away), Everton (home) and West Bromwich Albion (home) between Gameweeks 17 and 19, when their attack might become more viable.

At that point, we may have seen enough of Fabio Silva (£5.2m), who replaced Jiménez as the centre-forward on Sunday, to assess his credentials as a Fantasy asset.

PAIN IN THE ARSENAL

Ahead of Gameweek 11’s north London derby, owners of Tottenham assets will have been licking their lips at yet another dire Arsenal performance – although the data is not quite simple enough to warrant an all-out backing of Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) for the captaincy. 

The Gunners offered very little against Wolves and have now lost five of their first 10 league games of the campaign, three of those coming at home now.

Interestingly, Arsenal have fared slightly better away from home so far this season, although only defensively.

They have let in eight league goals across five matches at the Emirates Stadium in 2020/21 so far (1.6 per game) but, having played the same number on the road, Mikel Arteta’s men have given up just four goals (0.8 per game). Over the first 10 Gameweeks, only Spurs themselves and Aston Villa have been so solid away from home.

However, where Arteta has tried to tighten the ship at Arsenal, their attack continues to be nothing short of completely anaemic.

Accordingly, owners of Spurs’ defensive assets might be a little more encouraged considering Arsenal’s key man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.6m) has just two goals this season and the Gunners themselves have found the net in just two matches since Gameweek 5.

“It’s something that the day I decided to be a coach I knew that one day I would be sacked or leave the football club but I don’t know when that’s going to happen. In this profession, I know it will happen but I never worry about it. My only concern is to get the best out of the players and give the best possible service to the club.” – Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tierney, Gabriel, D Luiz (Holding 46′), Bellerín; Xhaka (Lacazette 80′), Ceballos; Saka, Willock, Willian (Nelson 65′); Aubameyang.

Wolves XI (4-2-3-1): Patrício; Marçal, Coady, Boly, Semedo; Moutinho, Dendoncker; Neto, Podence (Neves 70′), Traoré; Jiménez (F Silva 15′ | Kilman 78′).

    Hi all. Which one of these moves stands out?

    A. Ziyech & DCL -> KDB & Bamford

    B. Son & Rodriguez -> KDB & Jota

    C. Ziyech & Rodriguez -> KDB & 6.0m mid

      all these moves look like they all should have been done last week.

      1. Viper

        3 months, 1 day ago

        Can't be taking -8's every week.

        Everton/Leeds looked primed to be a goal fest & Rodriguez was unlucky not to get double figures.

        Son -> Kdb Wasn't doable without another transfer to fund it.

        KDB & Jota aren't exactly chasing points considering the fixtures

    5. Maeki2

      B

  2. Houldsworth Hatter

    Where to start here - no wildcard, 1FT and 0.7itb

    Martinez
    Zouma Chilwell Taylor
    Salah Grealish Bruno Rodriguez Ziyech
    DCL Vardy

    Steer Brewster Masuaku Mitchell

    No idea where to start without a number of hits!!

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      I have similar issues. KdB in imo.

    2. mrelpea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Could you downgrade Vardy to Wilson and swap Ziyech for kdb? Would be a -4 (provided money wise it works) but you’d captain kdb against Fulham so worth it I’d say

      1. Houldsworth Hatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 23 hours ago

        Thanks guys much appreciated

  3. MikeS
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    How many villa would you have if you could own more than three?

    Steer/Martinez
    Cash
    Grealish-mcginn
    Watkins

    6 for me, the team is littered with talent. It's a gold mine of fpl picks?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      I think I’d just have Grealish

      1. HODGE
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Agreed 1 just Grealish and I have Martinez who I'd like to see gone if I had a spare transfer

    2. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Just Martinez and Grealish for me

    3. F_Ivanovic
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Well I own 2 currently... so uhm, 2? They have some good value picks but you can't have all the value picks. Cash is bad value at 5m and Martinez isn't any better than the other 4.5's (and now more expensive too)

    4. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      You need to calm down mate....

    5. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Just Grealish if I was wildcarding now.

    6. MikeS
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Watkins looked like God tonight

      1. Maeki2
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Watkins could have scored 2

    7. mrelpea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Watkins and grealish. Watkins has looked really sharp every time I’ve watched him this season

  4. jernej93
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Long term (2-3 weeks) plan, which options seems better?? 🙂

    1.) Son, Bamford, Lewis, Brewster

    2.) Ings, Wilson/Bamford, Bissouma, James

    Bissouma can become Soucek if I decide Bamford over Wilson in 2nd option.

    Lewis would "compete" with Lamptey, Masuaku and Lamptey for 2 spots alongside Chilwell in defence.

    1. HODGE
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      1

  5. wulfranian
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Would you prefer to have Son or Ziyech in gw12?

    1. HODGE
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Son

    2. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Sonny

    3. MikeS
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Son easy.. he will spank arse

    4. wulfranian

    Anyone able to tell me the latest on Zaha? Curious if I can hold for 1 week..

    1. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Zaha is back and training.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Haven't read or seen anything, but not googled since I ditched him.

  7. JJO
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Didnt see any talk about Villa-Newcastle match postponement here?

    1. Old Bull
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      What’s that all about?

      1. JJO
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Newcastle United close training ground with entire first team in isolation

  8. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Id like to own KDB for Fulham but I think its too much of a luxury to get him just for one game week as Ill be wanting Salah the week after.. Think I'll just get Salah in straight away and hope Jesus is enough City.

    1. MikeS
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Fulham defence looked I penetrable today through..

      1. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        *impenetrable

    2. Nedvěd11
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      They have WBA after the Manchester derby thou..

    3. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      I’m thinking of Jesus too but his stats are barely better than Fabio Silva (for instance). I’m not sure he stands the longevity test, particularly if Aguero starts getting minutes

  9. Sir Alex Telles.
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Is Bamford a good option going forward or I should just get Antonio whom I had planned on getting way earlier or go for wilson for is on form? I'm losing Jimmy.

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Antonio is a no go until he shows ability to play a full game (or at the very least 75+ minutes)

      1. Sir Alex Telles.
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Thanks Brosstan. What's your current OR? From your posts, it seems like you're having a mare.

        1. pablo discobar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        2. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          1m OR... could be worse

          1. Sir Alex Telles.
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Not so bad. At 835k and happy as it is. You are probably just 10 pts behind me.

    2. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Bamford over Antonio

  10. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Midfield of...

    Salah | KDB | Son | Ziyech | Grealish

    Wouldn't mind Jota and Fernandes, what would you do?

    1. MikeS
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Ditch ziyech

    2. Sir Alex Telles.
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Ziyech is the obvious one to boot.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        What about Salah... is he worth 5.0+ more than Jota?

        1. Sir Alex Telles.
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Salah has pens.

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            I know that but still is that enough to justify the points difference.

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              price*

    3. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      The correct answer is whoever didn't score this week. If you do sell them you though be careful as you could get punished - and if they do get at least an assist they will be the top target next week.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        yes and that's why I am finding it difficult because I don't exactly want to trade Ziyech.

  11. Nedvěd11
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Pick one of Kane or Son next 5 GW

    1. MikeS
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Son

    2. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Son

    3. Sir Alex Telles.
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Kane because of penalties.

    4. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Son, Kane drops so deep

  12. The Sociologist
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Anyone managed to scrape together a half-decent team with Salah /Fernandes /KDB / Grealish as the midfield 4?

    I just can't make it look okay in my own team...

    1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Got to sacrifice premium forward to do it. Dont think DCL Wilson double up can cover that

      1. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Or go 3-5-2 with Jota and grealish
        Bamford and dcl up top

      2. The Sociologist
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Could move DCL to Antonio to facilitate Son > KDB. But leaves nothing in the bank and a load of 4.5s and Chilwell in defence.

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      I am 2FT off this:

      Martinez – (Button)
      Lamptey– Zouma – Dias – (Kilman) (Targett)
      Salah – Bruno – KbB – Grealish – (Soucek)
      Bamford - Wilson – DCL

      1. The Sociologist
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        I think this is probably the most sensible route, but would require Vardy > Wilson, and Son > KDB for a -4 which feels like it could either be inspired and painful. Happy with that front line?

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Yeah so far as either one of them seem to haul in any given week. I am counting on steady points from the mids.

          My moves to get that team are: Robbo Son => Zouma KdB for free

          1. The Units
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            MIght look to go Soucek Wilson => Jota Brewster to play a 3-5-2 in a few weeks.

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Just 2 of the first 3, I think all 3 is a bit overkill for the rest of the team. Especially when players like Jota are firing.
      Also want money to get TAA when he’s back

      1. The Sociologist
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Are you picking two and sticking, or hokey cokeying depending on captaincy?

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Bruno set in stone virtually, aiming towards a team with around 0.9ITB with KdB in to swap to and from Salah.

          1. The Sociologist
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 1 day ago

            This is the way I'm leaning for now I think, as otherwise I'm looking at a couple of hits between now and GW12. Hopefully as long as you cover the main captaincy picks in a given week a haul from the one you don't own shouldn't hurt too badly.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              Yup, I’m getting Son back in at some point too, so Bruno, Son, Grealish, Jota and one of KdB/Salah

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      It's actually fairly easy to do.

      Salah, KdB, Fernandes, Grealish, Jota
      DCL, Bamford, Brewster

      That is pretty standard and does the trick.

      1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        DCL and Bamford/Wilson from GW12 looks poor tbh

      2. The Sociologist
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Never been a massive fan of 3-5-2 but this is certainly the way to go if you’re going down that route.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          I've played 3-5-2 all season. It's been just fine.

          1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Me too

    5. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Will have this by GW12 for free

      Martinez
      James • Dallas • KWP
      Salah • KDB • Bruno • Son • Grealish
      DCL • Bamford
      (4.0 / Masuaku / Brewster / 3.8)

      1. The Sociologist
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Festive captaincies sorted!

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Yikes that's a painful front line and bench right now . . .

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          I think that team looks extremely good personally.

      3. The Sociologist
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        How much is left ITB here? Definitely warming to this setup, as you can move that 2nd forward slot onto whichever of Wilson/Antonio/Bamford is looking best.

          Exactly. Leaves about 0.5 ITB. I need 1 mill freed up and planning on Chilwell ~ James. Baps machine and still a threat going forward.

      Yes I'm basically going without Kane, Son and DCL. So no I don't claim my team is decent though defence is good.

      I've given up catching the front-runners by having those three as I missed the DCL bandwagon and team value has relatively suffered.

      My only hope is for those three to have a quiet few weeks and my midfield captaincy picks payoff during that period,

      I’m currently on:

      McCarthy Button
      Chillwell cancel coufal vestergaard Kilman
      Bruno KDB jota Ziyech grealish
      Jesus DCL Watkins

      Will take a hit with this week to swap DCL and Ziyech for Salah and Davis. Will leave .1 itb to upgrade Cancelo to Dias if Cancelo doesn’t play mid week

        Cancelo to Dias upgrade would be in GW12, obvs. Not for a second hit

    1. Sir Alex Telles.
      • 4 Years

      Waste. Goal keeper transfers are a waste. Keep martinez.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Tell that to us Guaita owners.

      2. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Is not a waste long term at all Martinez is a dead spot in the team that needs sorting

    2. GreennRed

      Mendy.

      1. Dynamic Duos

        Was going to get James to go with Chilwell, don't want to triple up

      If you have the funds

  16. Labile

    GW 12= Sterling,Bowen,DCL ➡️ Jota Salah Wilson -4

    worth saving to make these transfers? Thanks.

    1. Sir Alex Telles.
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Injuries, Europe football and covid will eff up your plans. Play it a gameweek at a time.

      1. Labile
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        They could but only player I worry for is Wilson

        And will just get bamford if he’s out

        1. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Watch out with Wilson - COVID going around Newcastle camp

    @J ⚒ SALAH & VINAGRE Will you have info for Palace this week?

  18. IRBOX ⚽
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    How has Watkins not got any points there? 🙁

    Watkins and Sterling owners incredibly unlucky but that’s standard FPL

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      It was never a pen so justice done there but the dissalowed goal should have stood

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Because he misses 66% of his pens

    3. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Try owning him AND Werner...

  19. Super Saints
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Every time I've ever sold Son he has hauled for example GW2. I held him this week because of that instead of free transferring to KDB and he's let me down massively! It's his final chance v Arsenal, frustrating too as he's a differential in my ML.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Please can you sell him.

    2. MikeS
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Agreed and be will smash arse this weekend

    3. The Sociologist
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      If you’ve held on this long it’s Arsenal and Palace up next, so I’d be fairly hopefully of something.

      1. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Son will penetrate the heart of arse this weekend and pound arse

  20. jia you jia you

    Watkins in for Sterling(C), Bellerin, Robbo (robbed) and Martinez at the back... 38 points despite making great transfers this week (Burke + Coady to Jota + Walker), youch!

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      very hard lines!!!

        so frustrating when you make great moves but still get battered by the FPL Gods & Pep lol

    Best replacement for Jimi ? (Get well soon lad)

    2. MikeS

      Watkins.. looked like God tonight on the pitch, very unlucky not to get a hatty

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Ings might be back very soon.

  22. Labile

    going without KDB captain feels suicidal...

    1. The Sociologist
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Yep, feels like he’s a must this week.

    2. MikeS
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      See if he plays tomorrow

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Draw and they qualify top spot so hopefully he doesn't need to play *crosses fingers*

  23. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Who would you play next GW?

    A) Coufal (MUN)
    B) Lamptey (SOU)

    If the Newcastle game is off, Grealish sits out anyway 😉

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Lamptey

    2. The Sociologist
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Lamptey for sure

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Cheers. Sensible choice, given it's Fernandes (A) again...

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Yep, first thing that came to mind when I saw your question.

    4. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Neither will be a clean sheet.

  24. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    my app indicated that watkins had equalised, I thought happy days, just realised he has actually missed the pen...

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Other than that glitch is the app any use?

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        definitely not tonight 🙂

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      And equalizer chalked off

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        ha maybe that was the one then cheers.

    Is this looking like a Save FT as things stand?

    McCarthy
    Chilwell -- R.Dias -- Justin -- Targett
    KDB (c) -- Fernandes -- Son
    DCL -- Kane -- Wilson

    4.0 -- Soucek -- Bissouma -- Mitchell [1FT + 0.9m ITB]

      Hope Wilson isn't one of the infected.

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        I only heard about this from reading this thread just now. Wilson --> Watkins perhaps.

        Kane downgrade at some point soon to upgrade 4th mid - long overdue.

  26. JaydenLFC87

    Castagne > Cancelo for free

    Yay or Nay ??

    Back up player is Neco Williams

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years

      No.

    2. The Sociologist
      • 1 Year

      That's a tough sell this week... I'd hold off.

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

      Wouldn't bet on it after a 5-0

      1. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos

        My only captain choice:/

  28. Africa United

    Grealesh and Bowen both 3 bonus nice

  29. TorresMagic™

    Mendy / 4.0
    Chilwell, James, Coufal, Targett, Lamptey
    Salah, Bruno, Jota, Rashford*, Barkley*
    Vardy, DCL, Brewster

    1.7m itb 1ft

    I really want KdB and Barkley to Grealish would be nice. DCL is droppable, at least after one fixture. I have been planning
    1) Rashford and Barkley to C KdB + 4.5 (-5.5)
    2) Rashford and Barkley to Mahrez + Grealish
    3) Something I haven't seen?
