    Watkins > Kane or Vardy ?

    A) Kane.
    Plus - 2 good home games
    Minus - Would become Vardy in 19 for -4.
    Play Liverpool in 20.
    B) Vardy.
    Plus - An extra DGWer without losing 4 points and good fixture in 20.
    2 good away games.
    More cash itb if there’s a fire to put out.
    Minus - No Spurs for Leeds ,Fulham
    More likely to rotation than Kane.

    Morning everyone. I really need some help. 2 FTs and 0,3 ITB. I want to upgrade Lewis to C Taylor but he doesn’t really need to start today so wondered if Lookman > Soucek was a better move? Want to save the other FT.

    Martinez
    Bednarek / Balbuena / Lewis
    Salah(c) / KDB / Grealish / Fernandes / Lookman
    Bamford / Kane

    Subs: Button / Brewster / Lewis / 3.8

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      How many Lewises do you have?

      1. greggles
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Too many evidently. Starting Justin.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Soucek move I suppose. Shame as Lookman looks bright too.

          1. greggles
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Thanks. Decided to hold on to Lookman in the end and got Taylor.

  8. Zilla
    • 3 Years

    Start Soucek or Neto?

    1. Original Pirate Material

    1. thegaffer82

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

          Nice! Quite scary benching anyone against FUL haha.

          1. dansmusen
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Zouma agains a weak Arsenal is a must

    5. Ronny Sandstone
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Should I take hits before I WC next gameweek, currently stuck with Chillwell/James with only dross to come in Mitchell/Kilman, also got Wilson up top, been too distracted with Xmas to plan a WC team, considering a -8 or punty type tbh

      Only nailed on defender is Justin this week!

          • 6 Years

          Yes a bit of fun before a very conservative/safe wildcard I think!

        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        It’s been a shocking few week. I was taking advantage of having 14 strong players including James, Chilwell, Walker and Lamptey to go easy bench boost. It’s all gone to pot now and I’ve just taken a -8 to put a decent team out. It’s done now, I like my team and I’m ready to enjoy Boxing Day. Go for it!

    6. Van der Faart
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Someone talk me out of this -8

      Chilwell, Grealish, Bowen
      To
      Dallas, Raphina, Salah

      1. Van der Faart
        • 9 Years

        *means I have KDB, Son, Salah and Kane

          No KDB here 0/

          1. Van der Faart
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            I only want KDB for this week really, will sell after today

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              KDB is many people’s route to Salah, you cannot have them all ?

              1. Van der Faart
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Considering it now, along with Chilwell to Robbo, thanks mate.

      2. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Salah the only + But Chilwell needs to go if out for two weeks.
        Not got another option ?

        1. Van der Faart
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Have got other options, involve shifting Son or Kane. Not ideal with those fixtures.

      3. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Not a fan of getting rid of Grealish.
        Can't trust Leeds defence.
        But Salah is a must have. Not convinced about these moves though. Would get rid of KDB.

        1. Van der Faart
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Will ship for Bruno probably after today

    7. Defochibe
      • 11 Years

      Play Soucek or McGinn?

      What happens to any free transfers you have when you free hit? Do you lose them and start at 1 again at the start of the next game week or do you carry over 2 if that’s what you have when free hitting?

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

        You loose them.

        Get Cancelo for Walker? Could haul so decent chance of repaying the hit.

        1. Thia6o
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Many thanks,
          I was looking at Stones and Robbo for Walker and Chilwell but yours saves me -4

    15. Mr_Barbs
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      2FTs. But pretty happy with the team this week. Any thoughts?

      A) Cresswell > Coufal or Taylor (Bur)
      B) Chilwell > Cancelo/Dias

      Meslier
      Robbo, Cresswell, KWP
      Salah(c), Bruno, Grealish, C.Jones
      Bamford, DCL, Kane

      Steer, Soucek, Chilwell*, Mitchell

    16. Vovhund
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Best one week punt for Chilwell before WC GW16:

      a) Dias
      b) Matip

      Or should I rather go:

      c) Wilson to Adams

    17. C_G
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      really want to put the armband on Kane

    18. Bob.

      Why are people selling grealish?

      1. badgerboy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        I'm seriously considering bringing him in for a -4.

      2. Gandalf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Fixtures bad after this one and no DGW, but it's next gameweek would expect lots of sales

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

        Positive delta on FPL Statistics

      4. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Hard fixtures after today and no double.
        I’d be selling if I had enough transfers.

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

        He's going after this gameweek to fund Son, but he'll be popular in GW18, and I think the Villa-City fixture from GW1 could end up in DGW19.

    19. Il Capitano
        2 months, 5 days ago

        All GTG? Bench is terrible, but I'm WCing GW16 so should be able to get through this week.
