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.

    I see myself with 2 choices which I've struggled with all week
    A. Kane and Burke to Salah and Brewster
    Or
    B. Resign myself to not owning Salah for the foreseeable future and upgrade bench for Xmas period

      Id do A as you already have Son but that's my personal opinion

      low TV or expensive defensive line?

      1. Johan Queef
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Both! Chilwell and Robbo using up funds (and bang average TV).

    2. GoonSquad
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Mahrez and Ziyech to Soucek and KdB?

        Just checked...not got the funds! Back to the drawing board.

    A) Bench 1 of 3: Soucek (PAL H), Zaha (whu A) or Wilson (lee A).
    B) Pick 1of 3: Coufal (PAL H), James (wol) or KWP (ars A). nb have McCarthy

    Justin > James or save FT?

    1. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Save

  7. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 6 days ago

    Anyone undecided on what to do with Robbo? He's clearly not worth the money but with so much uncertainty, not sure I can justify using a FT to remove a starter with great fixtures after TOT.

    1. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      I'm giving him a few more games. I have a feeling the hauls are coming

    Bench 1 -

    A. Taylor (avl)
    B. Lamptey (ful)
    C. KWP (ars)

    1. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Close one between A and B. Probably bench A as you might get attacking points from Lamptey... might.

  10. Bobby's Teeth
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Bench 1:

    DCL (Lei A)
    Soucek (Palace H)

    1. AbsolutelyNoIdea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Soucek

  11. Nightcrawler

    4 months, 6 days ago

    Normally i nake my cap call at the trt of the wel and stick with it but for 1st time this season it feels like a genuine 50 50 call

    Probably 51-49 in favour of bruno becuase of the extra 2 days rest

    1. Bobby's Teeth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Same here. For me, it's more of a 60-40 call in favour of Bruno. However, my worry is exactly what you have highlighted as a point in his favour. The extra days' rest actually leaves less resting time before the Leeds match on Sunday. I am concerned if that might lead to a benching against Sheffield.

    Day 1 certainly looks like making or breaking my GW
    Triple Che defence !!!! (It’s a temporary putting out fires transitional thing)
    KDB (C) and Walker

  13. AbsolutelyNoIdea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Struggling with this one.

    Which option/formation:

    A) 3-4-3
    James, Cresswell, Konsa (Bench Dallas vs Newcastle & Wilson)
    DeBruyne,Salah,Grealish,Fernandez
    Bamford, DCL, Wilson

    or

    B) 4-4-2
    James, Cresswell,Konsa, Dallas
    DeBruyne,Salah,Grealish,Fernandez
    Bamford, DCL (Bench Wilson vs Leeds)

    1. ceerus
      • 6 Years

      I have A, but with Chilwel

  14. Jakew99029
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 6 days ago

    Plan to get Salah....
    Should I hold Jota for 1gw so I have 2FT for Jota and Werner to Salah and one another next week. Two questions:

    1. Is this a stupid plan as Jota value will drop?
    2. Who should the attacker be? I will have 8.7m left itb.

    1. Van der Faart
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Depends on who your other attackers currently are

      1. Jakew99029
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Mid sterling bruno, saka, bissouma, jota
        Att Wilson and bamford.

  15. ceerus
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 6 days ago

    A) Konsa
    B) Targett

  16. Lord.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 6 days ago

    I see that Heaton is now getting an outing with the U23 team. Does he take Over from Martinez when he’s match fit?

  17. Jimmy Boy
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    Off topic but really feel for anyone who owns Raphinha, he was taking shot after shot in the first half but somehow came away with nothing despite Leeds scoring five

  18. minthow
      4 months, 4 days ago

      A) Vardy & Ward-Prowse —> Ings & Son
      B) Vardy —> Kane
      C) Keep Vardy, upgrade elsewhere
      Currently have Bruno, Salah, Graelish, Soucek, Bamford, and DCL
