Pro Pundit Teams

How to use teams’ specific weaknesses to pick the right FPL assets

Despite selling Jamie Vardy (£10.3m) for a hit on Friday, Gameweek 12 turned out to be a pretty good one for me.

After taking my second minus four of the season to accommodate Mohamed Salah (£12.3m), I returned a total of 70 points and as a result, now sit 202,736th overall, with my Wildcard still intact.

So, as focus turns to Gameweek 13, I’m going to have a look at where teams have been conceding most of their chances from this season, in the hope of identifying one or two transfer targets for the Christmas period. 

I’ll then have a closer look at some of the players who stood out, and also discuss plans going forward.

WHERE TEAMS CONCEDE THE MOST CHANCES FROM

Using data from the Premium Members Area, I’ve had a look at where each team is most susceptible to conceding chances. This is something I like to keep track of during the season, in an attempt to find out which fantasy options can exploit those weaknesses.

    Who do you think will find form and step up to score big this GW, and why?

    Maybe someone who hasn't had a double digit score in a while, has a series of no attacking returns, or has very low ownership.

    Have you seen something in someone's play or in their stats to make you think they could be ready for a breakout GW?

      Walcott

      I feel someone like Greenwood could step up and explode this GW

        If he was guaranteed to start the next 4 or 5 games I would get him in now for sure. Good call!

      Keeping an eye on Curtis Jones 4.4 who is getting a run in the LFC midfield and plenty of plaudits from their fans. Can see a goal incoming very soon.

      Otherwise, Maguire 15-pointer on his old stomping ground.

        Mason Greenwood. He's had a difficult start to the season but he's got so much quality and with the games coming thick and fast now can see him getting minutes and returns.

        1. FPLMACKEM
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 9 days ago

          This is one I'm strongly considering. Will he not rotate though with martial/cavani?

          1. BeWater
              4 months, 9 days ago

              It's the only thing putting me off.

          It'll be a City slicker.

          Torres (c) I saw on the last article. That could be genius.

          Hoping it's Mahrez, because he's my Jota replacement. Hoping Rashford waits until next week

        5. Bobby Digital

          Watkins

              Yes. There should be ht about every great article. Maybe even in some other colour or something. Proper, "deeper" discussion is too difficult and many would like to have it. But this is now A or B and RMT:s only 🙁

                Fair point. Lookman has looked lively also and is up against Brighton.

                The only thing putting me off Greenwood is he's potentially a rotation risk.

            If you had to cap one of Kane or Son vs Pool, which?
            Kane surely on defensive master class right, and Son bombing forward? But then again Kane could still get a pen, and has a decent record vs Pool, better then Son..

              Cant see a 0-0 and Pool at home, its not in Spurs favour, but I dont have many cap options.
              Kane it is, thats what I have been thinking also

            I am very surprised that KdB leads the captain poll over Fernandes especially since Fernandes has higher ownership.

            I think Fernandes is the superior captain this week because of the extra rest that United are going to get. Both have huge points potential of course but I do think it's much closer than the captain poll suggests.

              both will probably score 10+, sheffield not likely to ship more then 3 goals though. City west brom could be 5/6-0

                But it could also be a 2-0 like the Fulham game where they take the foot off the gas and take off all their attackers on 60' to save their players for the weekend...

                  west brom are even worse then fulham and on a good day city would have beat fulham with 4-5 goals, missed alot

              Do you think that because of expected minutes, or heightened team performance because of more rest?

              It works both ways - united also have a shorter turnaround ahead of next weekend, which could also result in managed minutes.

              I'd expect KDB to score more, but it's probably pretty even - however, if I captain KDB and he fails there's a massive downside, whereas a Bruno captain fail is going to affect most of my rivals as well

              I'd hate to be sitting on a KDB captain blank tomorrow evening, knowing all my rivals have Bruno captain to come, in the last match.

              I'm hedging my bets and going Bruno

              Martinez

              Chilwell Lamptey Cancelo (Mitchell Kilman)

              1.1 ITB

              Need to transfer Mitchell/Kilman out. Who to get?

              A) Taylor
              B) Konsa
              C) Ayling
              D) Balbuena

                all good options, probably not Konsa with Martinez aleady.

                Personally would go with who rotates best with Lamptey (and in turn comes off bench for Cancelo)

              Is Hames supposed to return this week? Forced to play him because i see no good option below his price (have grealish)

              Any United fans know if Greenwood will start v Sheffield United? Or is he likely to make way for martial/cavani?

              Save FT, Son out, or Son and DCL out for a hit? Maybe even drop Robbo to someone?

              Mendy
              Robbo - Chill - Dallas - Dias
              KDB (C) - Son - Grealish - Salah
              Bam - DCL

              Steer - Giroud - Stephens* - Douglas*

              A) Save
              B) Son > Rash, Bowen (allows me to do DCL > Kane next GW), Mahrez or Torres
              C) Son + DCL > Kane and Bowen (-4)

              Is this worth FT chaps?

              Salah ➡ KDB(c)

              Have Bruno and Mahrez in my team

                probably not in the long term but surely kdb outscores salah this gameweek

                You've made your bed with Mahrez, so I'd sleep in it.

                Nah don't do it. What you think of Mahrez?

              Not sensible to do Mahrez and Robertson > KDB(c) and Taylor for -4 right? Worried about missing out on some serious KDB points but there aren't many ways of getting in KDB other than Salah hokey cokey.

                Not for -4.

              A. Jota to Torres
              B. Kane & Jota to Salah & Welbeck (-4)

              Have Son. WC in GW16.

                Pretty mad to ditch Kane for a -4 tbh

              Anyone else going no city? If so why?
              I can afford KDB or Sterling but have to say goodbye to Son and can't. Could go Ederson but cash for keepers seems a waste.

                Here and just because I have no good route in except salah>KDB. Hopefully bruno(C) bring the gods and my main priority now is getting kane back
