FPL’s reigning India winner Lateriser: The eye-catching stats ahead of Gameweek 11

An elite Fantasy Premier League manager with three top 200 overall ranks to his name, Lateriser12, picks out some player and team statistics ahead of Saturday’s deadline.


It’s been a while since I did a deep dive into the Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members Area so this is what I’ll be focusing on in my latest article, citing stats that have caught my attention.

What is FPL Upside Chasing and how can I implement it in 2020/21?

    Watkins to Bamford for a hit or play Riedwald? If Riedewald doesn't play then I'm down to 10 men

    1. Sarri-ball
      • 11 Years

      Im looking similar.

      Depends who prefere longterm. 4 hit becomes a 2 hit really as riedewald gets 1 point max

    2. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years

      Riedewald

    dilemma - in a Draft league and got offered Havertz for James Rodriguez... hard to know what to do. Is Havertz much of a goalscorer?

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      It's a close one but I would slightly prefer James

    2. neilddd

      I'd say Havertz has a higher ceiling than James but you'd be taking a gamble on rotation and him settling quickly

      He scored 29 in the last 2 bundesliga seasons, so he's certainly got it in him. Most of them from in and around the 6 yard box as well so he seems to have a bit of a poachers instinct.

      Obviously remains to be seen whether he can hit those heights at Chelsea. I'm a Chelsea fan so I'd 100% take the gamble, especially given James form dropping off a bit recently, but Chelsea have looked pretty good without Havertz in recent weeks so I understand the dilemma

        cheers gents - yeah, its a bit of a dilemma. our league hasn't had many transfers at all, so its interesting someone has offered him out. it kind of hinges on him becoming key for Chelsea, especially in the Draft where you can't just switch out equity players like that. you can get lumbered with big names who only play one in two weeks (hence i usually avoid City players like the plague)... James is always gonna start for Everton if he is fit i assume... but then i always have it in back of mind that he's injury prone for some reason. No goals/assists in last 5 games also makes me think he might be tailing off.

    Best Cancelo Replacement (up to 5.7m)

    A) Dias (potential rest this week?)
    B) RJames (have chillwell)
    C) Castagne (if fit)
    D) Reguilion
    E) other?

    Back line is
    Chillwell Coufal Lamptey Lewis* Cancelo*

    1. Jimjam
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B

    2. Tcheco

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      It's James.

    If budget won't stretch to KDB + Salah:

    (A) Mahrez & Salah
    (B) KDB & Jota

    1. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      A

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

      A

  5. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Who do you think will score more this GW?
    A. Kane
    B. Vardy

    1. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      B - I hope

    2. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      A, as an Arsenal fan and Vardy owner

  6. Jon Walter's Hatty
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Devil's advocate here but England international Heaton is now fit and Villa have one clean sheet in last 5. Do we actually know Martinez is No.1 in Smiths eyes?

  7. onceuponatyne
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Anyone got any inside knowledge on whether TAA will play??

    I'm guessing it's unlikely...

    1. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Agree. It’s very unlikely people have legit inside knowledge.

      TAA just not the right player to bet on just now IMO mate

  8. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    For people asking if Jota is enough to cover Salah's absence in their team, here is a team suggestion for you:

    Martinez
    T. Silva Matip Stones
    Mahrez Jota Rashford McGinn
    Iheanacho Adams Tammy

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Can this team cover the Dream Team?

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Easily!

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Haha!

    3. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Silva will be pissy being in this

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I know. World class, but then we are talking FPL!

    4. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Noce!

    5. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      How much ITB?

      About 30 million?

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Yes. For future transfers. Iheanacho to Lacazette for example if Arsenal start showing form.

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          So nice that you have faith in me.

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            A quality striker in a team I love. No reason why I shouldn't.

    6. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      ultimate differentials there, will shoot you u the ranks for sure!

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years

        Hahaha! definitely.

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is it crazy to move Mitchell to Neco for a hit - betting on a cs against Wolves too offset the -4 ? Would give me a badly needed 0.1 next GW, as TV is lowish. If he should also play next gw, could probably hope for a profit later on as well. Alternative would be to keep non-playing Mitchell, or upgrade to playing 4.5 at first opportunity. Can we afford to go forward with bench fodder at this point?

    1. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Dallas. Or a couple others work at 4.5 mate.

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Txs, good shout, can look at getting him next gw or week after

        1. james 101
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          No prob mate. Thoughts on my team below?

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Dallas

  10. james 101
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    GTG?

    Martinez
    Cresswell Chillwell Justin
    Salah KDB(c) Bruno(vc) Grealish
    Vardy Wilson DCL.

    1. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Tempted to cap Bruno. But on Kev just now.

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        GTG, even if fielding only 9 players
        Coin toss between Bruno and KDB, I'm on KDB
        Do you have anyone coming off the bench for Grealsih?

  11. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Would you be fine with playing 2 of Dallas/Coufal/Lamptey every week?
    They do rotate well mostly except this week

    1. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      If I had huge players elsewhere then maybe.

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

    bottined.. Would you free hit this team this week, guys? 8 players and 0 FT :)))

    -
    robbo*, lamptey, Chilwell
    mahrez, salah, mane, soucek
    DCL

    Also got Cancelo and Kilman but they won't get any points

      Not a good idea to FH. But, I would def FH with this team.

      1) Here you're 2 or 3 players short to field 11 payers. If you play FH this GW, you have a good advantage considering lot of teams would be unable to field 11 players OR many team stretching up to -8 hit to field 11 players.
      2) If you play FH for a future DGW, whats the chance you get full 180 mins from premium players when it's going to be busy fixtures. You could even build your team for DGW, if you know the fixtures well in advance.

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

      Cancelo may start, honestly not clear from Peps explanation. Kilman also more likely for a start since they are playing Pool and likely to revert to a more defensive 5 at the back. So lets call that 9.5 players now. For the sake of 1.5 players, I dont see a lot of benefit from a free hit. Youll be cursing this decision later on, possibly as early as GW 18/19, when teams may have 5 or 6 players missing with blanks.

      In the past ive put out a team with only 8 players and pulled through it. You have to maximise the points potential from a free hit, and gaining only 2 or 3 players isnt worth it for me when I know there will be a week when its a lot more. One of my greatest gameweeks came with fielding only ~6 players, but I captained Lampard (old times i know) and he scored at hatrick and my ranking went up HUGELY. Nail your captain choice this week, and roll with it, decent looking team and players generally

  13. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Let's try again. What's the better combo?

    A) DCL + Raphinha
    B) Rodriguez + Bamford

    1. Stram Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I like A

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

      A , Rapinha being touted as a nice differential

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

      Context is I have both DCL + Rodriguez in FanTeam.

      One of them will need to be downgraded in order to fund Son > Salah in GW12.

      1. NateDogsCats
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Definitely Rodriguez, he's been very poor for a few weeks now

    4. Wheato182
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Anyone else tempted to play the free hit chip this week? tempted to play it and load up on city. I'm on a -4 already, I can get 10 players out but no keeper, my team aint looking great.

      Zouma - Chilwell - Ayling - Justin
      KDB - Fernandes - Ziyech - Romeu
      Kane - DCL

      Should I grin and bare or roll the dice?

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Do not use FH. Team looks good for this week.

        1. Indpush
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Grin and bear it

      2. Wheato182
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Cheers guys, gonna step away from the laptop now!

    5. Goooo Rickie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Salah & Watkins to Mahrez & Jesus (-4).

      What we saying?

      1. Indpush
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        No

      2. Wheato182
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Nah.

        1. Goooo Rickie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Why?

          1. Wheato182
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Wouldn't get rid of Salah for a hit, he could just as easily bag bag against Wolves.

            Would prob look to get rid of Watkins though.

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

        Totally crazy to lose Salah - and for a hit. For Mahrez who is a benching nightmare

        Just move watkins on

    6. Scott503
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Grateful for thoughts on my potential transfers (for -4). I have £2.3m to do:
      Podence to Jota // Wan-Bissaka to Chilwell

      McCarthy
      Coufal - Justin - Cancelo - Wan-Bissaka
      KDB - Salah - Podence - Soucek
      Vardy - DCL
      Bench: Nyland/Grealish/Watkins/Kilman

      Thoughts?

      1. talentoe
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        might want to consider shipping cancelo instead as he might not start or prone to rotation.

    7. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      When will we know more about Newcastle-Aston Villa game? Before deadline likely?

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        In terms of it being rearranged for midweek? Think if that was happening we would likely have heard by now.

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

        Think its most likely moved into next year. Very unlikely within same gameweek at this stage

    8. Jet5605
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Hey all, still have my WC to play and have 2 FT and 0.5 ITB. Keen to do Son > KDB but how do I enable with minus -2.0 in the bank?

      A - Grealish > 5.4 mid (Villa have great games coming up)
      B - Salah > Jota
      C - Other suggestion?

      McCarthy
      Chillwell - Taylor - Konsa
      Son - Bruno - Salah - Grealish
      Vardy - DCL - Bamford

      Steer - Soucek - Egan - Mitchell      

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

        I think you have to go without KDB until you feel you can downgrade Vardy. Thats the only route to be honest.

        I wouldnt lose any of your other players, and not Vardy this week. Decent team overall. Since you have 2 FT i would consider moving one of your def to Dias if possible? At least likely 6 pts for next week

        1. Jet5605
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          You're probably right. Fulham are on the up and so maybe I could live without KDB for the next two (while I'd probably want Vardy for the next two). Maybe I could downgrade Vardy after that when his fixtures turn and KDB has West Brom at home in GW13.

          Son > Mahrez feels iffy as he could do damage against both Arsenal and Palace and Mahrez always liable to be benched.

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

            Yup definitely wouldn't advocate Son> Mahrez. Unless... you are only doing so for a 1 week or 2, and then shifting Mahrez to KDB. Im not a fan of Mahrez because hes a benching nightmare, and his form is all over the place. But for the short term..? Maybe

            My plan is to keep Vardy for the next 2, maybe 3, then downgrade for funds elsewhere when fixtures turn.

    9. Jet5605
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Best 4.0 keeper apart from Steer? Looking to change him to free up a Villa space so I can potentially get Watkins

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

        I think they are all the same. Pick one out of a hat.

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

      Martinez Button
      Chilwell James Lamptey Cancelo Kilman
      Salah Son Burke Sterling Grealish
      DCL Jimenez Watkins

      2 FT, 0.8 iTB

      Would you use FH on this team? Normally I always leave it for blanks/doubles, but I only have 6 likely starters so this isn't much different from a proper blank GW for me.

      On the downside, I'd lose my 2nd FT if I FH.

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

        I would not FH with 2 FT because you lose your FT and you still have many of the same problems. I would be willing to take a -4 and — maybe — a -8. For this team, I would just take the 0 between the sticks this week and focus my transfers elsewhere, setting the team up well for December. Hang on to Villa players with good fixtures and DGWs on the way.

    11. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      What to do? 1FT and 0.6 itb.

      Thinking Steer to Johnstone or McCarthy.

      Martinez Steer
      Robertson Chilwell Lamptey Masuaku Kilman
      Salah Bruno KdB Jota Grealish
      DCL Bamford Brewster

      Any suggestions?

      best contributor here, hands down.
      having said that, I'm not a fan of these stats articles that manipulate your opinion by choosing samples and jumping from one sizing to another in order to justify the pick, it's kind of a sophism.
