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?

    Worth doing Martinez to McCarthy for free ?

    Or just go without the GK ?

    Martinez
    Robo/Cancelo/Chilwell
    Bruno/Son/Sterling(c)/Grealish
    Vardy/DCL/Bamford

    Martin/Kilman/Mitchell/Stephens

    1. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      AV will still have some good fixtures so not sure about losing Martinez

      1. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Go for it. Villa rarely keep clean sheets in their so called “good fixtures”

    2. THE KING CANTONA
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I would keep Martinez.

      But, wait for pressers If PEACOCK-FARRELL plays, transfer him in for free.

      1. Atimis
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Could get him in place of Martin but Burnley are terrible anyway

  2. Mr Ozil
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Kane + Bissouma + Martinez > Welbeck/Bamford + Mahrez + Ederson (-4)

    Yes or No?

    1. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      No

    In what is already one of the most confusing seasons of FPL, it is not helped that so many of the players have the same name. There's the James': Reece, Hamez, (James) Justin and Daniel. There's a JRod (second appearance) and a JayRod. There's Mendy, Mendy and Mendy. I'm wondering if in the interests in supporting us already weary FPLers, that we might request that players register a unique name at the start of the season?

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years

      No i like the confusion

    2. Birds of Prey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      You dind't even bring up the league is lousy with Mendys.

      1. Birds of Prey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        oops sorry you did. Get a Mendy everyone needs at least one. 2 maybe, but never-ever 3.

        1. The Ilfordian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Getting a Mendy feels like something that might need to wait until Christmas. I think Mendy, Mendy and Mendy might be the name of our local solicitors too?

    3. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Pick one medny and stick with it

      1. Birds of Prey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        FPL has a Mendy discount-- get two Mendy's 3rd is free.

    Ya know I made the choice to go w/o a keeper. Good fixtures and ultimately a dgw.
    You have larger issues. IMO GL

      Palace fans: which four defenders are nailed to start when all your defenders are fit?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Can this only be answered by Palace fans?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Ferguson Cahill Sakho PVA would be my guess but I’m no Palace fan - though I have been to Selhurst Park a couple of times

          1. Echoes
              2 months, 27 days ago

              Okay. Thanks. Want to replace Mitchell with another Palace defender but not sure who starts this week, other than PVA, for whom I don't have enough funds.

              1. Miguel Sanchez
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 27 days ago

                Not sure on the injury status of the CBs above but something pretty wrong with Ferguson- coming up to a year without football soon

          2. Echoes
              2 months, 27 days ago

              Can be answered by anyone, of course. Just feel Palace fans would know more about their team, but I'm sure some non Palace fans could be just as much knowledgeable, if not more.

            • 5 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Scott Dann looked off the pace, but I think Woy will no doubt play him week in week out

        2. Captain_Shirokov
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Chilwell, Dias, KWP, Dallas
          KDB, Bruno, Ziyech
          Kane, DCL, Bamford

          (Grealish, Stephens, Braithwaithe)

          1.4m in the bank, one free transfer and not a clue what to do. Thoughts?

          1. Alex1995
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Probably save it tbh, unless you fancy a punt on something like Grealish to Jota

        3. Indio
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          So I'm bringing in KDB - but how, and should I take a hit elsewhere? (1FT; £4.4 itb):

          Martinez (Forster)
          Cancelo, KWP, Chilwell, Coufal, Mitchell
          Bruno, Jota, Grealish, Ziyech, Son
          Vardy, DCL, Brewster

          A: Son > KDB for free
          B: Ziyech > KDB for free
          C: Either of above with Cancelo > Dias (-4)
          D: Either of above with Martinez > Meslier (-4)

          Thanks all.

          2. LC1
            • 6 Years

            B easy.

        4. OptimusBlack
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Which is the best ?
          A- Play Bissouma
          B- Semedo > James for -4
          But B For Long term.

          1. Jdpz
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 27 days ago

            a

          2. THE KING CANTONA
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 27 days ago

            B easy, if you have enough bench strength. Expect James/Azpi rotation with busy fixtures ahead.

        5. ZeBestee
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Is there any point taking out Martinez for a hit? Don't see many better keepers in his price range.

          1. THE KING CANTONA
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 27 days ago

            If PEACOCK-FARRELL plays, transfer him in for second GK, but definitely not for a hit.

        6. fish&chips
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          How's this rough plan assuming no other fires:

          Gw11 forster -> Johnstone (to cover Martinez)
          GW12 sterling -> Salah
          GW13 Kane & Bowen -> Bruno & Watkins (-4)

        7. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          End of the line for Justin or will they shift him out to the left? Fuchs has hardly looked great...

        8. Silent Friend
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Salah Bruno Grealish (bought at 7M) Son

          How to get Jota????

          1. wilsonito
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Replace one of your mids

          2. yakirh
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            You have Salah, relax

        9. King Kohli
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Can I get away with no Salah for the short term?

          KDB Bruno Son Jota
          Vardy Dcl Bamford

          He's the standout captain in only 4 of the next 10 gws imo,which apart from next week, I can cover with other players.

          Gw 12 - ful, my alternative one of Vardy/Jota/Son
          Gw 15 - WBA, my alternative KDB(c) - NEW
          Gw 16 - new, my alternative Son(c) - FUL
          Gw 18 - BUR, my alternative KDB(BHA)/Bruno(ful)

        10. rnrd
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Madness to do Sterling to Salah (C) this GW?

          the other option is to keep Sterling but I really don't feel confortable captaining him

          1. Atimis
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            I'm going (c) Sterling, last game for him in my team

            1. Mighty Wings
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              Do you really think he'll start after another 90 minutes midweek?

              1. Atimis
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 27 days ago

                We are talking about professional players or some sunday league? Sure he can start the game

                1. Mighty Wings
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 27 days ago

                  We are talking about Pep...

                2. FPL.team
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 27 days ago

                  Even Sunday league players play twice a week. Most of ours play the Saturday and Sunday.

          2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            I am sticking with my original plan of moving him out in 12 for Salah. I am keeping and probably captaining Vardy

            1. rnrd
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              that was my plan too but I'm actually asking myself is there is any good things backing up the fact Sterling is a better C option vs Fulham than Salah vs Wolv this week.

              I mean Sterling is not a sure starter, he's not on pens, there's a slight risk of cameo if not starting, he's not been clinical lately, there's no real reason Pep won't play the same team than vs BUR as Ful will be quite the same kind of opponent (and Mendy has been rested mid week so same stratgey might apply with Mendy / Torres).

              On the opposite, Salah is a sure starter, he's on pen, he has better stats and I expect Wolves to be quite shaken by Jimenez missing. I mean, they will be obliged to play a structure they are not familiar with

              1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 27 days ago

                Great points actually. All of it makes absolute senses. Wondering if I have a fear of missing out. Been patient with Sterling for so long. Do not want a situation where he plays and hauls. But I guess it's more psychological than logical.

          3. Chelsea91
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Going Salah

          4. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Not removing Sterling. This is his last week regardless of what happens though.

            Probably captaining KdB.

          5. Atimis
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Torres was subbed early which could be a sign that he'll play on the weekend.

            However Sterling was subbed early last week and didn't start on the weekend. And since he didn't play at all vs Burnley he could easily play twice in a row, while Torres having now started twice in a row could be benched.

        11. ZakyJ
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Newcastle seriously putting a spanner in the works!!!!

          Martinez Forster
          Coufal Robbo Justin Chilwell Mitchell
          Salah Bruno Grealish Son JRod
          Watkins DCL Brewster

          1.7itb 2FT

          do i stick with what i was going to do or now alter to get 11 players playing:

          Stick: Robbo & JRod > KDB & Ayling/KWP (Starting Brewster and no GK)
          Twist: Mitchel & Martinez > Ayling & McCarthy or something.

          Also Robbo has a nock so might not play anyway..

        12. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Think this blank has provided us with the perfect opportunity to sort benches out before the big fixture rush.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Some of us already have good bench cover 😉

            1. Jon Walter's Hatty
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              Lucky you. I've had fires to put out all season with injury, red cards etc.

        13. Tinmen
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Folks,is Abraham still expected to start this weekend ?

          He’s too risky to bring in isn’t he ?

        14. wilsonito
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Hypothetically, what would happen if the villa game was played on Monday? Any points just be added to this game week?

          1. kennethrhcp
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            I'd imagine Monday-Wednesday would still be gmwk11

          2. Erdogan
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Yes, even if it’s played Tuesday - it will be part of this game week.

        15. FPLord
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Martinez (Forster)
          Robertson Chillwell Cancelo Dallas (Douglas)
          Fernandes Ziyech Son (Grealish Stephens)
          DCL Kane Bamford 1.6 2FT

          A.
          GW11: Son, Cancelo > KDB, Webster
          GW12: probably Ziyech, KDB > Jota, Salah (-4)

          B.
          GW11: Martinez, Stephens, Son > McCarthy, Mahrez, Jota (-4)
          GW12: probably save and go without Salah

          C:
          GW11: Cancelo > Webster
          GW12: Son, Ziyech > Jota, Salah

          Tbh I'm not very confident in any of those moves

        16. Alex1995
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          4.3 ITB and 1 FT

          Thinking of just doing Grealish to KDB, or is anything else worth a hit? I don’t have a second playing GK

          Martinez*
          Robbo Chilwell Cresswell
          Bruno Son Grealish* Jota
          Vardy(c) DCL Bamford

        17. Babit1967
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          As a non KDB owner I Think I’m going to toss a coin this week with captaincy

        18. Noah’s Ark
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          My team is an absolute mess. No playing bench and I also own 3 Villa. If no rotation, I can field 7 players.

          Should I ride it out or FH?

          1. Noah’s Ark
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Or take lots of hits!

          2. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            I would take hits. If you FH, are you gonna be happy with your team next week? I suspect not.

            1. Noah’s Ark
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              I would! I don’t want to sell Kane/Son and I’d have to to afford upgrading my non playing players.

            2. TJ
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              you selling Martinez?

          3. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Unlucky, plenty taking hits, I don’t have a keeper this week.
            FH will rescue you but could be handy for the blanks etc

            1. Noah’s Ark
              • 8 Years

            -8 should get you to 10 players

              Yes by selling players I want to keep long term though in order to find. Will lose a lot of value on the likes of Son and Kane unfortunately!

                Why sell kane and son. They are at least playing this week. You may have just answered your own question there.

                  Yeah I did sorry but I have no money itb so in order to upgrade the non playing fodder I have I’d have to sell some players that I don’t want to I guess. Or else just sell the Villa players like for like price range which is just annoying for one week as they still have good fixtures.

                    I think you don’t want to FH but need to if you want to keep your AV players

          In my mini-league of four rivals has Vardy and not one has Jesus. Kane is in 13 teams.
          Kane to Jesus?

            Kane probs plays and has a good record V ars

            Don't sell Kane.

        22. Captain_Shirokov
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          A) 3.9m def to R. James/Lamptey

          B) Martinez to any keeper in the game (Mendy)

          C) Steer to Peacock-Farrell

          D) Kane to Vardy

          E) Stephens to Soucek/Podence

          Best move here is?

          1. GreennRed

            B.

          Which do you prefer long term?
          A) KDB and Kane
          B) Salah and Jesus
          C) Salah and Kane

          1. Beavis
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            B for the next few, but C long term.

              • 10 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              Yeah that's what I'm leaning towards. Think I'll just stick with Kane

          Can I get away with this team this week ? Feels very uncomfortable with no city players I must say. 0 FT and 0.1 itb

          Mccarthy
          Robertson Bellerin Chilwell
          Ziyech Soucek Bruno Salah(C)
          Vardy DCL Adams

          1. RealSocialDads

            Ziyech -> Mahrez could be good

            1. drughi
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              could be awful aswell with ziyech rested and playing leeds

          Is Jota a viable alternative to Salah in the short-term?

          Would allow you to keep the likes of Bruno, Vardy, Kane and Son who many are planning to downgrade to get to Salah in GW 12.

          1. RealSocialDads
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            I would be very cautious to go without Salah, depends how short term you mean

              This ...

          2. Pumpy Pro
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            He is a great option but for me i would always want to captain Salah over Jota. He has pens for one. He is the ultimate go to captain in the weeks where it is tough to decide too.

            Would rather have salah over likes of vardy

          4. jomikijiq
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Jota is a great stand-alone pick, but Salah is still the best C option in the game. Absolutely no reason not to have both.

        26. RealSocialDads
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          A. Son + Werner -> KDB + Bamford - 4
          B. Son + Vardy -> KDB + Jesus - 4
          C. Son -> Mahrez

          1. Miguel Sanchez
