Scout Notes

Kane and Son proving difficult to sell ahead of Double Gameweek 19

SPURS 3-0 LEEDS

  • Goals: Harry Kane (£11.0m), Son Heung-min (£9.7m), Toby Alderweireld (£5.4m)
  • Assists: Steven Bergwijn (£7.0m), Kane, Son
  • Bonus points: Kane x3, Son x2, Alderweireld

It may be a new year but the lethal Harry Kane (£11.0m)and Son Heung-min (£9.7m)combination once again proved devastating, as Tottenham beat Leeds 3-0 to end a four-game winless streak.

By linking up for Spurs’ second of the afternoon, their goal-assist partnership has reached a tally of 13 – already the joint most fruitful Premier League duo in a single campaign and by only their 16th game.

New father Kane scored a penalty after 29 minutes when Steven Bergwijn was fouled by Ezgjan Alioski (£4.5m) around the 18-yard line. Then, minutes after both going down with knocks, Kane and Son began 2021 like they ended 2020.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£4.9m) won possession in midfield and gave the ball to Kane. The striker then clipped in a cross that was met at the near-post by Son, converting past Illan Meslier (£4.6m) for his 100th Tottenham goal.

“The players understood how to close the door to the danger and how to explore some fragilities in the way they play that can be exposed. I don’t say a very good performance, I say a good performance and very important three points.” – Jose Mourinho

KANE AND SON: STILL IN BUSINESS

The recent form of both had coincided with Spurs’ poor December, as Son and Kane blanked in the previous two and three games respectively.

It may have also concerned FPL managers that both had been heavily out-performing their season’s expected goal involvement (xGI) numbers. Additionally, the South Korean international’s six goal attempts from the last five Gameweeks had been bettered by the likes of Rodri (£5.4m), Luka Milivojevic (£5.6m) and Conor Gallagher (£5.5m).

Yet here, albeit against a Leeds side that promises goals at both ends, the two had several promising opportunities. Early on, the two combined down the left-hand side, where the ball ricocheted back to Kane and a left-footed shot that sailed over the bar.

In the second half, Son cut inside from the left in plenty of space but hesitated to the point of not even shooting. He later set up a big Bergwijn chance where the right-footed shot was saved by Meslier, followed five minutes later by another save that denied Kane from a tight angle.

Both Son and Kane were popular Gameweek 17 captaincy choices for a reason. Kane is now in double-figures for both goals and assists, with Son notching his seventh double-digit haul of the campaign. 

They also take part in one of the five Gameweek 18 matches and, although they only play once in the following week of doubles, it is away to bottom side Sheffield United. When devising a chip strategy, getting rid of these whilst blindly chasing those with two matches might prove hasty.

REGUILON MISSES OUT

Jose Mourinho had never faced Leeds before but, because Wednesday’s match against Fulham was postponed due to positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test results, his players entered proceedings with a six day rest since conceding the late equaliser against Wolves.

Two changes were made to the side, including Sergio Reguilon (£5.7m) being named as a substitute and missing out on a clean sheet – Spurs’ first since the four of Gameweeks 8 to 11. 

Toby Alderweireld was the other change and he didn’t miss out on it, also nodding home the third goal from a Son corner. Matt Doherty (£5.7m), sent off in stoppage time after picking up his second yellow card, brought in just three points. He will miss the EFL Cup semi-final against Brentford.

“We suffered a goal from a set-piece and in the game we created 10 chances but didn’t score any goals, our opponents created 12 but scored three. For me the fundamental difference was the efficiency and the fact their offensive game came about through errors we could have avoided.” – Marcelo Bielsa

BOX OFFICE LEEDS

Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m), however, will be absent for Leeds’ next league match after being booked for the fifth time this season. That will be the first of their two Double Gameweek 19 fixtures, arguably denting the appeal of assets in all departments for the bumper round of fixtures.

This will, of course, be a blow to Marcelo Bielsa too, after managing to name a virtually-unchanged side on the past six occasions – only replacing the injured Liam Cooper (£4.3m) with Pascal Struijk (£3.9m) three games ago.

Leeds side weren’t deterred by the third goal, controlling the rest of the match in the same positive way they started it. Left-back Alioski found himself in the penalty area after just four minutes, as his shot hit the side netting. On the other flank, popular pick Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) was constantly getting into the box from the other side.

“In the second half, of the second half, we started to dominate again. We had a good offensive production.” – Marcelo Bielsa

ENTICING DOUBLE GAMEWEEK 19

Despite Phillips’ absence from the Brighton match, Dallas is still highly appealing ahead of facing the Seagulls and Southampton in the Double Gameweek. 

The Northern Ireland international produced a 12-point haul at West Brom and only Kurt Zouma (£5.8m) has scored more than his three goals in 2020/21.

Wildcard and Free Hit managers will also be looking at cheap winger Raphinha (£5.5m). He had the most shots of all midfielders in the preceding six matches and is always looking to get involved. In the first half, his left-footed in-swinger cross found Patrick Bamford (£6.6m), whose header went over the bar.

Bamford looked bright in the first half. Owned by 49.3% of FPL managers, he is the game’s standout cheap striker, whose ten goals and five assists make him the third highest-scoring FPL striker.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Doherty, Alderweireld, Dier, Davies; Hojbjerg, Winks (Sissoko 76’), Ndombele (Lucas Moura 78’), Bergwijn, Kane (Vinicius 87’), Son.

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Dallas, Ayling, Struijk, Alioski (Shackleton 64’); Phillips; Raphinha, Klich, Rodrigo (Hernandez 65’), Harrison (Poveda 61’); Bamford.

    Palace season started going wrong when Mitchell got dropped

      Correlation vs Causation.

      I'd be happy if he stays in first team though. Can be massive value over the season

    Really having a hard time deciding on to FH or not. There seems to be a threshold, as to wether you should or not, a mix of owning specific players, and owning a certain number of players. Obviously it’s personal choice, but still. The magic number seems to be 8 players. From what i’ve read on the forums. Without Kane, Rashford, KDB and no Arsenal im slightly concerned. I can get KDB for Salah, but that causes issues down the line.

    What are your thoughts on the FH in B18 saga?

    1. Tcheco
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I currently have 8 starters + Jamal Lewis who's been warming the bench for Newcastle. Think I'll take a -8 to bring in 2 more.

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      If you have nailed © option & 5/6 players in template alongside it, no need to FH.

      1. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Why not?

      2. Maddamotha
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        This is just getting thrown around, and I disagree with this. If you have 5-6 players more, you'd easily get 20 points more if only 1 of those 6 extra players returned for you. So if 2-3 of them return, you'd be looking at a much better score than with your original team.

    3. Tcheco
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      How does your team look at the moment?

      1. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Dias Stones
        Grealish Son Bruno Riedewald
        Watkins DCL.

        Not great. Riedwald is a dud. Can do Salah > KDB snd hokey cokey back in 19.

    4. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      The FH situation is purely dependant on your team. Everyone’s team is in a different position.

      Post your team so we can share our thoughts?

      1. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        As things stand. This is my BGW team without transfers:

        Dias Stones
        Son Bruno Grealish Riedewald
        Watkins DCL

        1. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I’d free hit that.

          Or WC a team that gives you a bench boost team for 19, plus gives you 9/10 key players for 18.

    5. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Going for it filling up on City United Arsenal. Shouldnt be rotation issues and ive got tons of dgwers for 19 so im sticking with the plan

    6. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Need to look at whether you have the key players in GW18:

      Kane
      Son
      KDB
      Fernandes
      Man City defender
      Arsenal defender
      Spurs defender

      If you have 6 or more of those then you are probably OK.

      1. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I have Son Bruno Stones Dias from that list. Before FT, not ideal.

        1. diesel001
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          You need KDB or Kane then, IMO.

          1. DAZZ
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Cheers mate. Might just take FH tbh.

            1. threeputt
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              I would wait before deciding personally, there's no way of knowing which players and teams this can still affect in the next 12 days. You can still FH nearer the time if you wish

    7. The Seagulls and the Trawle…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Same situation as you,

      Martinez
      Cancelo mitchell
      Bruno rashford Son
      Kane

      Can get Stones and Kdb for salah and a defender who plays a nice dgw (coufal, dallas, justin). And will have to get salah back somehow for the DGW. So easily -8 pts and sacrificing a good dgw. Plus arsenal form. Playing FH as planned before games rescheduled.

      1. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Same mate. Think i’ll just stop over thinking it.

    8. The Overthinker
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I had 5 players, and that is why I am using my FH !

    9. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I've got 8 (plus Bissouma, annoyingly). The obvious move for 18 is actually Salah->KDB and perhaps a hit to use the change to get an extra defender. The problem is more in GW19 when all of the big hitters could do really well, but it's hard to have all of KDB, Bruno, Salah, Son and Kane. Even if I FH in 18 I have that problem to solve, so I'll probably just do Salah->KDB this week and then decide the week after who to lose.

  3. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Would you skip GH if you could get the following team for -4?

    Martinez
    Stones, Mitchell
    Bruno, Son, KDB
    DCL, Brewster

    1. GS456
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Mitchell and Brewster look dodgy mate

    2. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      This is what im wondering. Does Arsenal form concern you? Using a FH you can take full advantage of their form.

    3. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I would FH.

    4. _Freddo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      You would do well to get 1 point out of both Mitchell & Brewster, Arsenal are scoring goals & Brewster is not even starting regularly.

    5. Maddamotha
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Id FH

    6. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Cheers, then it’s settled

  4. GS456
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Bottomed...

    FH Thoughts guys?

    Leno
    Yedlin, Maguire, Cancelo
    Grealish, Son, Bruno, KDB
    Wilson, Kane, Lacazette

    Thanks

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Decent bunch..

  5. 007 [RoboKlopp]
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Any input for this team?
    -Plan to use 2FT in gw18 to have 10 players
    Salah, Taylor -> KDB/Sterling, Holding
    -Use FH in gw 19

    Martinez
    Diaz, Mitchell (Dallas, Coufal, Taylor)
    Son, Bruno, Grealish (Salah, Zambo)
    Kane, DCL (Bamford)
    Cheers 🙂

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Just do Taylor to Holding this week
      Maybe Kane to Vardy or something next week and you don't need to us FH at all

    2. Tcheco
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I would do those moves & add Smith Rowe for whoever Zambo is for a hit

  6. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Which of these do you prefer?
    A) GW 18 : Riedewald to ESR/Saka
    GW 19 : Forster to Johnstone/McCarthy

    B) GW18 : Forster to Martinez
    GW19 : Riedewald to Soucek

    My other keeper is Mendy and I'm planning a BB in 19 so need the second keeper, I guess B looks better but the only problem is it will leave me with expensive bench options who I may want to move on post BB, on the other hand someone like ESR or Johnstone I can keep...

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A Saka,McC

  7. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Can get this after using my FT, would you FH this?
    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones Holding
    Son Fernandes (C) Grealish Riedewald (1-point)
    DCL

    1. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Of course no

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        No City attacker is scary though...

    2. A Kun & Mateta
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I would FH (did myself). Chance for a 30-40 point gain.

  8. LewanGOALski
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Laca for the Free Hit BGW18 then?
    Or Holding/Belerin and Saka enough of Arsenal?

    1. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Laca Saka Tierney for me personally

      1. Balls of Steel
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Those 3

    2. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Anyone know why Bellerin was hooked so early?

      1. The Orienteer - find me in …
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Had a yellow?

  9. Balls of Steel
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Currently considering the following with 2FT for gw18:

    Salah + Burke > KDB + Smith Rowe giving me this team.

    Does it look ok to roll out?

    Martinez
    Stones Cancelo
    Bruno Son KDB Smith-Rowe
    Kane DCL

  10. Lucky Z
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Guys, what is the situation on Shaw vs Telles in XI? Shaw is a priority for OGS?

  11. Cometh The Aouar...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Hey guys, I've been building my team for the upcoming double in GW19 in mind and was going to FH in GW18, but would you FH this current team (planned transfers in brackets):

    Leno
    Saiss Konsa (Dias)
    March Maddison (Saka) Bruno
    DCL Kane

    This would leave me with eight players for a -4. The players in brackets are who I want to have in the short to medium term.

  12. camarozz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Had a massive score with Salah/Robbo to go almost halving my rank.

    If I don't FH il have this.

    Martinez

    Holding/Lewis

    Grealish/Bruno/Son

    Kane/McGoldrick

    Afriad I'm gonna undo all my hard work with the above or would I get away with it?

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Looks like a FH to me!

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      FH i'd like some mancity players

    3. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'd free hit - that team is basically 6 players plus Lewis & McGoldrick who are awful and/or play for awful teams

  13. Captain Vantastic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Martinez

    Mitchell. Dias.

    Bruno. Grealish. Son.

    DCL.

    Would you FH this?

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Yeah probably

    2. Cometh The Aouar...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Yeah I would Bruno, Son and Dias (and maybe Martinez for save points) the only ones capable of scoring decent

  14. Nightcrawler
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Zouma McCarthy OUT (Not BBing in 19)

    Stones Martinez IN

    Worth -4? Only way i can save FH

    GW 18 Free Hitters... What are your squads?

    currently trying to decide whether to include any spurs players or just go all out on City/Utd/Arse

    1. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Im doing the latter. Villa Spurs two strong defensive sides I find that game hard to call and I will likely have no players from it.

      1. pwill40
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        currently on

        Darlow
        Holding / Dias / Saiss
        Sterling / Fernandes / Saka / Rashford / Son
        Martial / Laca

        putting in KDB probably means losing Laca to Wilson ... any advice?

        1. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Im not far off that but like Tierney and Cancelo. Maybe you get kdb for Rashford and get a United defender in for Saiss. Its a personal call

  16. diesel001

    3 months, 13 days ago

    If you are considering whether to Free Hit or not you need to start with who are the most transferred in and owned players this GW. You can do this on the FPL website. Best to do this on the Monday before the GW deadline.

    This will give you a feel for what FH teams are looking like.

    Once you have that, you can weigh it up against your current team. If your sole objective is to ensure you don't fall too far behind without Free Hitting then you need at least 6 of the most owned / transferred in players for GW18, IMO.

    1. pwill40
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      City mids are weirdly low on the list .....

      1. diesel001
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Too early at the moment. That is why you have to do it on the Monday night (UK time) before the GW deadline on Tuesday.

    2. tisza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Sounds right.
      People with FH are going to load Man City, utd and Spurs.
      Arsenal are the real danger if they continue their form as low owned ATM but likely to very popular on FH. But also are not bad transfers in even though only 1 game in 19 as decent fixture then even for BB players

      1. Finding Timo
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I am actually now thinking swapping Bowen to Saka ?

            • 6 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Need funds or already own Soucek? West Ham strong DGW and West Brom is a fixture to attack FPL wise

            1. Finding Timo
                3 months, 13 days ago

                Need funds to get in a city defender (probably Cancelo now) for GW18! I thought Saka looked good and 2 nice fixtures coming up so same as Soucek

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

            Which is why I suggest looking at ownership and transfers in, per my original post.

          No real urgency to FH early is there? Price rises shouldn't affect a FH 18 squad mich should it?

        Hi all! Like many others my strategy is FH GW 18 and BB GW 19. Can you please share your thoughts about my FH-team?

        Leno
        Saiss - Tierney - Maguire
        KDB - Bruno - Son - Rashford - El Ghazi
        Kane - Lacazette

        My bench are all fodders, as i have tried to choose safe picks in my starting 11 (Bench: Ziger, Struijk, mitchell, Davis)

        1. thegaffer82

          3 months, 13 days ago

          I'd go for one half decent bench player personally just incase...

          Can you stretch to Holding perhaps?

        Does anyone know how long flappy will be out for ? And also if West Ham have any other keepers to come in for him or is Randolph nailed if he’s out

        1. Original Pirate Material
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Only Randolph, other is David Martin but he is very much 3rd choice.

      4. The Overthinker
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Which of the below two do you prefer and why?
        A) kdb and Aguero
        B) sterling and Kane

        1. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          B) because I think Pep will carefully manage Aguero's return and that's a lot of cash to be holding someone who may not start any given game and almost definitely won't start both in the DGW

          1. thegaffer82
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Oh, but I'd go KDB over Sterling by the way (KDB & Kane)

            1. The Overthinker
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              Short of .3 for this

          2. The Overthinker
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            I am on my FH. So not bothered about what happens after BGW18

            1. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              Fair enough... you neglected to mention it was a FH choice 🙂

              1. The Overthinker
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 13 days ago

                My bad.

        Morning,

        What's best way to set up the team below for BB in DGW19 please? (£3.1M itb)

        A: Son and DCL > Rashford and Vardy
        B: Son and DCL > KDB and Lacazette or Abraham
        C: Keep Son, just DCL > Vardy
        D: Something else?

        Martinez, Forster
        Chilwell, Robbo, Cancelo, KWP, Coufal
        Salah, Bruno, Soucek, Son, Raphinha
        Adams, Bamford, DCL

        Many thanks.

        for FH BGW18:

        A) Tierney + Saka + Kane
        or
        B) Holding + Son + Lacazette
        ..?

        1. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          A) easily IMO

        3. The Overthinker
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

      7. Atimis
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Looking forward - whom, if any, would you lose to get City attacker since GW20 - Son or Vardy?

        1. Atimis
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Could Kun be an option by that time?

        2. Original Pirate Material
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Not Son.

        It seems i am okish for gw18, loosing ground on my rivals though... 4 players from Villa Tot... so tempted to WC and change it completely. What do you think?
        Have 2 FTs

        (McCarthy, Forster)
        Targett Dier Cancelo, Mitchel (coufal)
        Son KDB Bruno (Salah Soucek)
        DCL Watkins (Bamford)
        2FTs, 0.1

        Gw19, tc.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Considering salah... sterling rash and then either upgrade GK, DCL or get some Arsenal

      9. Jon Walter's Hatty

        3 months, 13 days ago

        Would be great if Aguero came to life today, another pirrahna in the tank

          Yep.

        Martinez
        Stone dias Mitchell lowton
        Kdb Bruno son grealish
        Brewster

        1ft 1.4 itb.. safe to say I can save fh here and look towards the double after?

      11. The Overthinker
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Free hit Draft #4 - Fairly settled on this. Only decision to make is of 2 players .

        Leno
        Dias Bailly Tierney (Yedlin, Mitchell)
        Kdb grealish son Fernandes (Burke)
        Aguero Wilson Lacazette

        The decision left is whether to go with one of the below

        A) Aguero and kdb
        B) kane and sterling

        Some inputs would be appreciated. Cheers. Thanks in advance

        1. Kabayan
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Can you get Sterling for Burke?

        2. photek
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I like the Aguero pick but he really hasn't played enough, see how he goes today and then assess

      12. photek
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Is Zack Steffan Man City's number 2 in Ederson's absense?

        1. The Overthinker
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Should be.
          Yes I am looking at him on FH

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          yes

        3. photek
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          thanks, looking at him as a number 2 for the short term

        FH19 vs WC18BB19 is such a tough decision. With my team already being so well set up for 18 though, I think I'm leaning towards the former. I expect many of the people on this site will be seeing massive rank gains over the next few weeks

        1. The Overthinker
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Most important time of the season.

          But with all the covid and matches getting postponed, there will be more opportunity in future imo

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 13 days ago

            That's a pretty good point, yeah.

      14. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        A. Sterling and KDB or

        B. Son and Rashford?

        1. AbsolutelyNoIdea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Tough call

          B

          1. Cruyff's Eleven
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Would spreading the risk because of COVID play a role in deciding?

            I'll end up with triple ManCity and triple Arsenal....

      15. Lindelol
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Hardly any game in GW 18 is high scoring so I am not gonna do FH just because of that.

        1. Cruyff's Eleven
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Only need one or two players to score big in each game.

          A no show is a certain blank.
