The emerging FPL trends concerning Calvert-Lewin, Vardy and Fernandes

Seven-time top 10k finisher Zophar delves into our Premium Members Area to assess three well-owned FPL assets and reveals his Gameweek 11 team.


As I recoil from the sight of three Aston Villa players in my team who are suddenly without a fixture in Gameweek 11, I figured I would share some observations on some trends I have noticed over the past few weeks. 

Calvert-Lewin’s decline

    Grealish > Jota free? I have my wildcard still so i'll be able to adequately prepare from the Villa DGWs and bring Jack back

    If not and Cancelo doesn't play, i'm stuck trusting Dallas (che) and Bissouma

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Yes

      Trust Dallas and Bissouma.

        Thanks

  2. Prison Mike

    Who to play guys?

    A) Semedo (liv)

    B) Bissouma (SOU)

    C) Dias -4 (FUL)

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      A

    2. LewanGOALski
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      A

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      C (pay off in longer term at worst)

    4. Nolberto Solano
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      I think Dias has a celing of 6 points, so better of just playing Semedo.

    5. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      B

    6. Mufc202020
      • 1 Year

      C

  3. LewanGOALski
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    A) Jota & KDB
    or
    B) Salah & Mahrez
    ..?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      This week A because of KdB captaincy.

      Next week, you’ll want Salah back.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      A for this week at least

  4. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Allison injured again then. Don't think I've ever known there to be a more injury prone keeper! Jeez.

  5. Vazza
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Who to lose next week to bring in Salah

      A. Kane
      B. Vardy
      C. Bruno

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Don't.

      2. wulfrunian
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        a

      3. Z
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Kane if you have Son

    • Deulofail

      Arsenal lineup predictions?

      Nelson and AMN looking good yesterday.

      Would expect Tets to start with Willian and one of Xhaka and Ceballos, but would be nice to see the young guns in the derby:

      Leno
      Bellerin Holding Gabriel Tierney
      Elneny Partey*/AMN
      Nelson Lacazette Saka
      Aubameyang

      Runarsson, Mari, Cedric, AMN/Xhaka, Ceballos, Willian, Nketiah

      Luiz will probably be back ahead of Mari, though. Even ahead of Holding, potentially. Willock will likely get in there too, probably at the expense of AMN.

      Looking forward to seeing Chambers back in the squad, maybe the following game, if there's space. Pepe will be back the game after that. Smith Rowe might get his chance before the end of the year.

      Martinelli back in January, I guess, but hoping for a Christmas miracle. Then there's Saliba...

      And maybe Mustafi and Kolasinac need to be put in the shop window.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        I feel for you

      2. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Dross
        Dross / Dross / Dross
        Dross / Partey (if fit) / Dross / Dross
        Dross / Dross / Can't be arsed

      3. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Aubameyang will be an option soon.
        Arsenal will win the NLD

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 19 days ago

          Sounds like you’ve been smoking some of that leaf

      4. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Wow. Based on a few laboured games, the players are suddenly bad? That team looks good on paper to me. Just no depth without Partey, Martinelli, Pepe.

    • ADucksBehind
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      A) Ziyech + Dallas
      B) Mahrez + Dallas -4points

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        A.

    • LEFT-FIELD
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Current Mid:
      Salah, Son, Bruno, Grealish*, Soucek

      A) Salah to KdB (will have to play Soucek)
      B) Grealish to Mahrez (just for this gw)

    • bruuuno
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Rashford Son > Raphinha KDB(c) -4?

      Making it possible to transfer in Salah for free next week

      1. wulfrunian
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Tough.Probably no.

    • McSauce
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      could you imagine the scenes on here tomorrow if Pep goes full Pep and just rests the big dogs vs Fulham and runs out the other lads.

      KDB, Mahrez, Walker, Dias all benched

      1. Z
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        KDB is onlyone that is nailed......always

    • royals forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Would you FH this team or what other changes would you make

      What changes would you make to this team

      Areola

      Lamptey Chilwell Keane

      Lookman Jota Son Ziyech

      Kane DCL Vardy

      Martinez Semedo Dallas Grealish

      1 FT 0 ITB No WC FH available

      Any ideas would be welcomed

      1. stu92
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Definitely wouldn't do free hit. Double Fulham is a bit bold but I'd maybe roll the transfer and go big next week by coming off Kane/Vardy?

      2. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Not sure how you have done this to yourself - looks like the kind of supporting cast you would have around Mo,KDB or maybe Bruno not the whole thing.
        Areola out to another 4.5 will probably be a positive move.

      3. Sid1891
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        There is no Mac City cover and if they score few you can be in trouble
        Maybe Son to Mahrez?

    • Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Anyone gonna (C) Sterling? Kinda worried or just sell him for Kdb?

      1. TeddiPonza
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Get rid

      2. Sid1891
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        No chance

        1. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 19 days ago

          No chance meaning?

          1. Sid1891
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 19 days ago

            Sorry
            No chance for Sterling captain if l had him this week
            Sell for Kdb

      1. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Good news for Arsenal. Hart had a poor game last night.

      2. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Hart (c) against toothless Arse?

      3. Z
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Well...i have 2 Spurs back, they brought me a lot pts...so this is terible news

    • stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Any word on Robertson from Klopp's press conference?

      1. Taegugk Warrior
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Nope

    • Catastrophe
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      1FT, 1.1 ITB.

      Martinez*
      Chilwell, Zouma, Justin
      KDB, Son, Fernandes, Jota
      Vardy, DCL, Bamford

      (Steer, Bissouma, Mitchell, Kilman)

      A) Justin -> Dias
      B) Son -> Mahrez
      C) Son & Justin -> Mahrez & Walker
      D) Save FT

      Next week - Vardy & Bissouma -> Salah & Brewster.

      Thinking D is sensible move but drawn towards C to take full advantage of City's fixtures

      Cheers.

      1. Nolberto Solano
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Nice team, I would Save FT (D) and use two FT's next week

      2. abhirup780
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        A

      3. abhirup780
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        But I'd probably do Mitchell to Dallas to prepare a bench for Christmas

    • TeddiPonza
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Could I get away with this team for the weekend? Doing Sterling to KdB now and Kane and Bissouma to Salah and Brewster next week.

      Martinez!!!
      KWP Lamptey Zouma Justin
      Son KdB Bissouma Bruno
      Kane DCL

      Bench: Forster Mitchell Grealish Watkins

      2m in bank and 2FT.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      KDB Sterling Grealish Son
      Richarlison Brewster

      Rashford & Abraham out (fed up with the doubts!) for ...

      a) Raphina & Jesus
      b) Raphina & Vardy
      c) Mahrez & Bamford
      d) Raphina & Werner

      Based on Hodgson’s quote, do you Think Zaha will start?

      1. Z
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

    • Chris_White

      Meslier over McCarthy on WC, what is the consensus?

      1. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        I see both will score very similar until the end of the season

        1. Chris_White
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 19 days ago

          Yeah Leeds do have the fixtures in this coming period though

      2. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        I would probably go McCarthy and get Dallas in defence?

    • Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      A) JRod >> Jota (-4), meaning next week can do Son >> Bruno for free
      B) no hit this GW and JRod + Son >> Bruno + Jota (-4)

      1. Nolberto Solano
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Bruno in for Man City game?? May as well wait a couple more weeks

        1. Max City
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2. Sid1891
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        If you go -4 you will need Jota to score to be even
        I would wait

        1. Max City
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

    • Weeb Kakashi

            • 9 Years

            Maybe I should count myself lucky fielding a full 11!

    • RECKLESS

      Is there chance Pope will be still out? need Peacock to play as GK...

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Pereira back in training for Leicester. Is this the end of Justin? Own him currently.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Justin should be there for another couple

        4 months, 19 days ago

        If he is rested means would not play for 11 days- he will in my view play and rested in CL ahead of derby game. Pep always talks about keeping the rhythm and he has said all concentration on PL

    • aidmata
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      McCarthy (Steer)

      Chilwell Lamptey Cresswell Justin (Mitchell)

      Mane KDB (C) Son (Grealish Bissouma)

      DCL Vardy Brewster

      Can I get away with rolling 1FT this week?

      Other options would be doing Grealish to either Jota or Mahrez as have .8 ITB?

    • Sterling Archer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Seems to be a common trend of players being rushed back too early and getting injured again this season!!

    • GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Are there gonna be supporters at any PL games this game week?

      1. Superninteno Chalmers
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        yea 2.5k

    • fridge
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      What would you do with this lot? Obviously I would like to get KDB in but not sure if I should just save now to have 2 FT next week to get in KDB and Grealish. I do also still have my wildcard...

      McCarthy
      Chilwell. Lamptey. Taylor
      Bruno. Son. Ziyech. Jota
      Kane. DCL. Vardy

      4.0. McCarthy. Dallas. 4.0

      1. Nolberto Solano
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        In your position I would save. Ziyech or Son to KdB would be the move this week
