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?

    Expect City nailing top spot in the UCL to lead to some classic Pep roulette. I'd expect full strength defence (Dias & Laporte) - he'll want to make 100% sure that this new momentum in the Prem isn't derailed

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Agree. I'd be surprised if it isn't Dias & Laporte.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Yeah, I wondered if Stones would start over Ruben but let's face it Dias is the star, world class CB signed to replace Kompany as the leader in the team. I can't see Pep rotating him for the sake of it, more likely in the CL. Dias-Laporte for me.

    *bottomed* Do we think Nathaniel Phillips retains his place in the Liverpool defence this weekend?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      No - think they will go Robbo Matip Fabinho N.Williams

    For anyone wondering... Bruno WILL NOT be rested this weekend. Absolutely no chance Ole will rest him.

    Martinez!
    Chilwell Dias Lamptey
    KDB Bruno Ziyech Grealish!
    Vardy DCL Wilson!

    (Steer Bissouma Mitchell Kilman)
    1 FT & 1.7m

    Wilson ➡️ Bamford for free?

    Gives me 10 starters for this week hopefully with no GK.

    Leaves just about enough money for Vardy & Bissouma to Salah(c) & Brewster for a -4 next week.

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years

      Can't fault it.

      Don't like doing this but feel a little lost

      Guaita (Martinez)
      Justin Dias Zouma (Robbo Mitchell)
      Son Bruno Walcott Ziyech Jota
      Vardy DCL (Brewster)

      What I'm looking at for this week, have 1FT but think I'm best carrying over. Have a few ideas going forward but feel a bit unsure where to go. Looking at getting Antonio in for Brewster probably next week if he seems fit after this weekend and upgrading Justin to Pereira if he comes through the next week unscathed (I'm doubting he'll feature this weekend but think he will next, lines up with how long Rodgers said he wants to give him until he thinks he'll be ready for the first team too). Problem is this prices me out of Mitchell to Dallas which I think I need to do. Also need to get rid of Guaita and might actually do so after next week once I figure out what to do. Also pondering Walcott to Gross or Raphinha but they're same value or less so just a matter of if and when with that.

      I also don't really want to leave myself with next to nothing ITB as I've had minimum 1m in the bank for about 6 weeks now and found it gives me a lot of flexibility if an unexpected change needs to be made. Open to any suggestions as as I said I'm really not sure what to do. Thoughts?

        Never bench Robbo.

        Team looks surprisingly strong for this week when a lot of people are fielding less than XI. I'd look at getting in some City. Ziyech > Mahrez might work. But ideally you should be looking for a way to get KdB in that slot.

        1. NateDogsCats
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Thanks, I wasn't planning on benching him but with it looking like Neco Williams playing again I can't see pool not conceding, I know Robbo always has great capabilities going forward though even though Wolves don't tend to concede too many, hmmm will need to rethink that. I'd definitely like KDB at some point but I'm still not totally convinced by City but I know even when they're poor KDB can haul (much like Bruno), maybe I'll need to rethink the Pereira + Antonio moves

        2. Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          I'm not a big fan of your team structure, as your captaincy options are limited and you've got too much cash in your GK/defence.

          Walcott>Gross/Raphina is too sideways to bother.

          Personally, I'd probably save this week and do a mini-WC next week. Maybe downgrading Walcott to 4.5 bench fodder, and upgrading Brewster to Bamford.

          1. NateDogsCats
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Thanks, yeah I never actually looked at it that way about captaincy options, I've gone between Bruno and Vardy for a number of weeks but having at least one more option would definitely be beneficial. I actually had a very cheap defence for the first 5/6 weeks except Robbo and felt I needed more money in there but I take your point, I keep contemplating getting rid of Robbo to facilitate bringing in another premium mid but every time I do he gives me reason to keep him. I'll consider Bamford, avoided as I still think he's too profligate but he gets so many chances every week it doesn't really matter

          Nice article LR =)

          Robinson looked decent against Leicester I felt. Everton are definitely a team I'm targeting based on both stats and having watched them played - as you say, you have to update your assessment of teams not just stick with what you thought at the start of the season.

          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
          ______________________________________________

          Watkins, Grealish, Martinez, Forster, Callum Wilson,

          Best move to get KDB?

          A) Bruno to KDB (FT)
          B) Son and Justin to KDB and 4.5 def (-4)
          C) Son and DCL to KDB and Adams (-4)
          D) Son and Grealish to KDB and Jota (-4)
          E) Save FT and captain Salah, Bruno or Vardy

          1. Bucket Man
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            E for me. I’ve got KDB but not Bruno but don’t see too much between them I’d captain him.

          2. Willmissudimitrypayet
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            B

          3. Badluck Jonathan
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Maybe B with Dallas?

            1. ryacoo
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Could do but already got Ayling. Other defs are KWP, Targett and Mitchell so was considering Webster for BHA's fixtures (can't stretch to Lamptey).

          4. Pegboy
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            E

        6. Reckoner.
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Opinions on percentage chance of Foden starting his 1st PL game in 5 games?

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            30%

          2. Pegboy
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            20%

          3. ryacoo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            33.3% imo, between him, Torres and Sterling to start alongside Mahrez and Jesus in the front 3.

        7. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          One week defender punt, max spend 5.1 and already have R.James:

          A) Keane (bur) - gets a few headers and Burnley have conceded a lot the last four GWs

          B) Lamptey (SOT)

          C) Justin (shu)

          1. Reckoner.
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            I've gone Justin, Sheffield United are awful, especially in attack.

            1. Jon Walter's Hatty
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              OK for one week but his place is very much at risk now Peirera is back.

          2. Bucket Man
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            C probably most likely to keep a clean sheet. Other two more likely to return attacking points. I’ve got Lamptey and he always looks great but hasn’t actually scored much yet.

        8. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Think I'm gonna upgrade Steer to Johnstone with my FT rather than a McCarthy or Messier. Better fixture and feels more like fodder - really in for this week as a one off.

          1. Notorjus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Think I will do the same, also good as it will give you two playing gk for gw19 doubles so that you can bench boost.

            1. Jon Walter's Hatty
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              good point that

        9. Weeb Kakashi
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          So Aston Villa Newcastle could happen later midweek?

          1. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Not seen this news?

        10. Badluck Jonathan
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Is Cancelo -> James for a FT a good move this week?

          1. Bucket Man
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            I’d say so. I’ve got Cancelo and don’t want double up with Chilwell and also have Watkins to deal with so may prioritise him.

            1. Badluck Jonathan
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              I have Chilwell too - why wouldn't you want the double up?

              1. Bucket Man
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 23 days ago

                Not to keen on that with them yet, they looked solid but just not 100% that and I fear rotation. Don’t know why I got Cancelo!

                1. Badluck Jonathan
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 23 days ago

                  I'm attracted to the double up cos almost everyone has a chelsea defender at the moment. Only way to benefit from a clean sheet is if you double up.

        11. Shatner's Bassoon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          A) Salah + KDB
          B) Salah + Bruno
          C) Bruno + KDB
          D) All 3, skimp on forwards

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            D

          2. Badluck Jonathan
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            I'd say D

        12. sthelenslad92
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Start Lamptey (SOU) or Soucek (MUN)?

          1. drughi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            lamptey

          2. Badluck Jonathan
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Its close. Probably Lamp

            Just think yourself lucky you have a benching headache in a week when many are playing with 10 or less!

        13. Kno
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Any martinez owners just considering taking the 0?

          I got a fre transfer but feel like saving it for next weeks project get salah back is more points potential

          1. Badluck Jonathan
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Yes. I have 2FT and considering not using either on getting a keeper!

          2. how now brown cow
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Weighing up martinez to mendy against robbo to james

          3. Jon Walter's Hatty
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Not really - I feel if you can get points for free then take them, unless you really want to make changes next week

          4. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            if for free the I would defo sell.

            I'd have to take a hit so more likely to take the 0

          5. tisza
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Yep.
            Fixtures afterwards and don't want to upgrade Steer for the sake of a single GW.

        14. Iceball
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          1ft...
          A) Pray Sterling plays and save, concentrate on getting Salah next week with 2ft
          B) Sterling to KDB(C)
          Problem with A is that its not that unlikely Sterling wont start and then 1 pointer or Brewster from bench (again!)
          and that next week I still dont have KDB and be wondering what to do with Sterling.
          Have Jota btw and might just go without Salah short term (and keep Kane as Kane would have to be the cash-cow)

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            I'd do B. It's a horrible move to make but it's necessary I think. You get captaincy option for this week that you'll be happy with and then in GW13 as well.

          2. Bucket Man
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Sterling to KDB. I’m having to play Brewster although I thought he looked sharper last week.

          3. NoSalah'd
              2 months, 23 days ago

              I did B, as I had simply had enough with Sterling. Do you think that getting Jota in for Ziyech next week is a good shout?

              1. Iceball
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 23 days ago

                Not sure about that as Ziyech has Everton, leaky defense

            • Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              I am keeping Sterling. Moving him out for Salah next week. And then getting KDB in 13.

            • Pompel
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              B, that's what I've done at least, also to beat price rise/drop
              Think you can survive without Salah if you have Jota

            • Iceball
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Thx all, yeah, somehow B has been screaming at me 🙂

          4. Bucket Man
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Watkins to Bamford or Cancelo to someone. Leaning towards Bamford in case Cancelo plays and not too many options I like. Would have loved to have saved a FT. 1FT 0.5ITB

            McCarthy
            Chilwell, Cancelo*, Lamptey
            Salah, KDB, Son, Ziyech
            DCL, Watkins* Brewster
            Dallas, Mitechll, Grealish

            1. Traction Engine Foot
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Bamford. Dallas is a decent bench option if Cancelo doesn't play.

              1. Bucket Man
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 23 days ago

                Thanks. Might be able to save finally next week

          5. Boss Hogg
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            a. Ziyech to Mahrez
            b. Watkins to Adams
            c. Martinez, PVA and Ziyech to Ryan, Neco Williams and KDB (-4)
            d. Save the transfer (got 10 players)

            1. NoSalah'd
                2 months, 23 days ago

                I wouldn’t bring Mat Ryan in, I have him and he doesn’t get any save points. Maybe do Watkins to Bamford?

                1. Bucket Man
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 23 days ago

                  B.

                2. Boss Hogg
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 23 days ago

                      Yeah, better stats than Adams, and I prefer Ings for saints when fit.

                  b or d, depends if you want Watkins long term.

                      JRod to Mahrez?
                      The little fella looks off the pace recently.

                      2 months, 23 days ago

                      Does J.Rod and Vardy to Bamford and KDB work?

                      1. slamdunk
                        • 4 Years
                        2 months, 23 days ago

                        Yeah Jrod was gonna come out this gw,but with whats happened and the doubts over Cancelo i was thinking Grealish to Mahrez and cap him then cancelo to Recce James maybe?

                    Got wilson and watkins who 2 sell?
                    And replacement

                    A) antonio
                    B)banford
                    C) adams
                    D) wood

                      Nothing until Saturday morning, it might still go ahead in GW11. However if confirmed its off I like Watkins to Bamford

                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 23 days ago

                      I think only Bamford is a real option out of those.

                        • 11 Years
                        2 months, 23 days ago

                        I like Adams for 2 weeks.
                        Then back to Wilson.

                          2 months, 23 days ago

                          Actually, just keep Wilson and sell Watkins!

                    Going to be selling Foden for KDB (c) this week for a hit, but which is the best enabler transfer:

                    A) Werner to Bamford
                    B) J.Rodrigez to Soucek (or any £4.5)

                    A looks better long term and gives me a stronger bench. B looks better short term (fancy Werner against Leeds especially after rest in Champions Leauge).

                    Many thanks in advance!

                    2 months, 23 days ago

                    Werner + Saiss to Reguilon and Jesus for free?

                    1. QuintonFortune25
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 23 days ago

                      Not keen on Jesus, would only touch KDB and Dias from City right now. Maybe Mahrez in the short.

                      If you've still got your wildcard then yeah maybe

                        Thanks, Wildcard went a while ago - think I will just change Saiss - him and Kilman have been frustrating me

                    Not sure if Villa have an clout in the matter but you would think they would go all out to get the game played quickly while Newcastle have the problems.

                    Unusual question here but... how nailed is Fofana?

                    Soyuncu is back and playing in Europa this week. Is he nailed still? I'm looking for a Yerry Mina replacement in FanTeam and can't see anyone at 4.5m that appeals.

                      • 2 Years
                      2 months, 23 days ago

                      Is FanTeam worth playing, might give it a go in 21/22?

                      I really like the Telegraph game as another alternative to FPL.

                        2 months, 23 days ago

                        I like it a lot. It's so similar to FPL that I don't need to deviate my strategy that much.

                        The teams looks stronger too.

                        Currently have:

                        Lloris
                        Chilwell Zouma Cancelo
                        Mane KdB Son Grealish Rodriguez
                        DCL Watkins
                        (Meslier Mina White 4.0)

                        I'm gonna lose Watkins for Welbeck this week almost 100% sure. That leaves Cancelo or Mina who it might be worth taking a hit to remove...

                          Team looks good yeah.

                          Cool. I think I will enter that next year.

                    What would you do now that Villa aren't playing? Have 2 FT so could make 3 transfers if any suggestions? Maybe a Watkins replacement?
