All eyes on Kane and Son as Fulham visit Spurs

All eyes will be on Son Heung-Min (£9.8m) and Harry Kane (£11.1m) as the two well-owned Spurs attackers aim to put Fulham to the sword in Blank Gameweek 18.

Joining the pair in attack will be Moussa Sissoko (£4.9m) playing in a more advanced position. Harry Winks (£5.2m) retains his place in a midfield three, with Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (£4.9m) and Tanguy Ndombele (£5.9m) .

Sergio Reguilon (£5.7m) makes his Premier League return, with Serge Aurier (£5.2m) on the opposite side of the defence.

Eric Dier (£5.1m) and Davinson Sanchez (£5.2m) partner in central defence, with France international Hugo Lloris (£5.6m) in goal.

Scott Parker, who was furious at the game being moved with so little notice, has made several changes to his line-up.

Out-of-position Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.4m) continues in a false nine role for Fulham, supported by Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.3m).

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.9m), Harrison Reed (£4.4m), and Andre-Frank Anguissa (£4.5m) make up a midfield three for the Cottagers.

Kenny Tete (£4.3m) and Antonee Robinson (£4.4m) line up at wing-back, with Ola Aina (£4.4m), Tosin Adarabioyo (£4.5m) and Joachim Andersen (£4.5m) in central defence.

Alphonse Areola (£4.5m) keeps his place in goal.

Spurs XI: Lloris; Aurier, Dier, Sanchez, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg, Winks, Ndombele; Son Kane

Fulham XI: Areola; Tete, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina, Robinson; Loftus-Cheek, Reed, Anguissa; Cavaleiro, Decordova-Reid

    Anyone have any idea on the percentage of FH's played?

    1. COVID-CASUAL
        1 month, 16 days ago

        63% of the top 10k used FH. 22% overall

        63% of top 10k played FH this week, meaning 78% have now played FH this season

          That many people have played it? Woahh

          Higher than I expected. Can hope to make up ground gom BGW29 then

          We haven’t beaten Palace in the last 4 times we’ve played them. 3 draws, 1 loss.

        using 1st Wildcard by GW16 is a rule that needs to go. There should be no time limits on it.

          One WC a season could solve that.

          1. Bookkeeper
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            This, though can't see FPL do that, two WC keeps players interested.

              2 anytime WCs seems a bit much.

                wasn't that the case few seasons ago?

          Huh? Why. Theres a 2nd wc right after that deadline so essentially it makes no difference, you could just not use it and use the 2nd?

          Cause he is not bad as Jesus

          He is (for the most part) - games he's missed have been Jose giving him a rest with perhaps only the Liverpool game was for tactical reasons as Davies is the better defender.

      • pundit of punts

        Tweaked my DGWFHT a bit. Thoughts? 🙂

        Alisson
        Stones - Coufal - Dawson
        Salah - KDB - Bruno - Pulisic - Foden
        Vardy - Antonio

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Downgrade Pulisic to Soucek and upgrade Dawson, or to Barnes and swap Alisson for Fabianski

          1. pundit of punts
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Fabianski injured

            Don’t want to go there

        Thinking about FH next week. Thoughts on this possibly
        Fab
        Taa Creswell Cancelo Dias
        Barnes Pulisic Kdb Bruno Salah
        Antonio

        1. pundit of punts
          • 8 Years

          Looks good

          Lots of options to play with for us

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Would want Vardy on a FH (if fit)
          Wouldn't be surprised if Son outscored Pulisic
          Looks good though, like the Antonio pick

      • JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Mane, DCL and Dallas to KDB, Antonio and Cancelo(-8)? Thoughts?

          Yes. And as a non FHer going well. Beating my cup opponent and ML H2H; both have FHed. Plus a 40k jump as of now.

        No DGW defender at 4.6 or less?! Could not find any.

        1. MSTRKRFTSMN
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Balbuena possibly

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Lost his place to Dawson I think.

        2. Here's Tom with the We…
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Yes, but unfortunately you’re looking at Fulham, West Brom or Burnley.

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Yes. Thats what the issue is.

          Dawson £4.5 W.Ham?

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Thats the one probably! Taken Balbuena's place I think.

            1. MSTRKRFTSMN

              1 month, 16 days ago

              “We’re not too bad,” Moyes said, reflecting on the overall fitness of his squad. “I think we’ve got one or two knocks and niggles, which we’ve had.

              “Fabian Balbuena missed the game in midweek and I’ll need to see how he is. I’m not sure how he’s going to be yet.

              “Michail Antonio’s back on the grass so we’re pleased to see him back. Whether it is too quick for him, we’ll need to assess as well.

              “Overall, we’ve got a few knocks and niggles and we’ve got players who’ve carried knocks, but that would be normal getting to this period in the season.” Moyes 3 weeks ago

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Dawson has put in some solid performances post that.

                1. MSTRKRFTSMN
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  It’s true but balb is back now and never missed a minute prior to the injury. It’s a tough one

                  1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 16 days ago

                    yes.

                        I have Cpufal but a double up should not be bad. considering the fixtures.

        Might keep both Son and Kane for Sheff Utd. Can see 3 goals in that which means double digit hauls for both. No Salah though...

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Exactly same situation.

        2. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Going without Salah in a DGW is really really asking for trouble imo. Can maybe keep one and sell the other.

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Selling Kane to fund Salah is the most sensible option right now probably. Playing so damn well though.

            1. Qaiss
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              That’s the move I’m doing for definite. I’m 50/50 on keeping Som.

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 16 days ago

                I was going to drop Son but it was pointed out to me that Sheff Utd are actually fairly aggressive which suits him very well on the counter, Rashford for example hauled at LW a few weeks ago. So that could be a fixture that greatly suits him.

                It'll most likely be Kane + Grealish/Son -> ST + Salah unless I chose to FH 19.

        3. pundit of punts
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          I may do the same ans save the FH as well.

        4. FPL_Motty
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Nah better to spread the risk. Salah plays twice and if spurs have a bad day and don't score then both kane and son blank. Its possible for that to happen contrary to popular belief..

        5. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          I'm just keeping Kane and doing Son to Salah I think

            Removed Saka for Shaw. Looks like it was the right move

        Son > Salah -4?

        1. Eliano
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I would say yes if Salah clicks in the DGW you will give up pints to a lot of people who have him

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Cancelled bench boost because of the postponements.

          Pretty hesitant to Triple Captain KDB after that last game.

          Never usually this doubtful to pull the trigger on my chips.

            TC is a complete lottery. Have TC's Aguero in dgs's a couple times in previous seasons for a "guaranteed " hauls, only to see benchings and blanks. So dgw19 as good as any dgw.

                The cool kids did it in GW18 and now have a FH saved for BGW29 😉

                How does your team look at the moment?

              KDB needs target practice, if not he's going to end up below Gralish and Zaha at end of season

              Missing sitters all the time, he got way more points when playing deeper

              Leeds have screwed all my planning of getting KDB but could have this team for a -4.

              People, we are all hurting because of that KDB(c) abomination.......but let’s start asking the important questions.......are we sleeping on Firmino for DGW19?

                  Currently on 38, with a Top10k average of 37. If the gameweek ended now, then I'd consider that a win, even if it did mean burning my FH. Without, I would be somewhere in the vicinity of 500k+ OR (a huge red arrow).

                    Yeah but how many of the top 10k also wasted their FH this week?

                    Sissoko is useless. I still dont understand how somwone like Jose puts him on the pitch almost every game.

                  BB looking less appealing now.
                  Not sure I trust KDB or an out of form Salah for the TC.
                  Do you think it is smart to hold of all the chips in GW19 now?

                  Really hope Villa play both with Martinez and Watkins in both as this is still perfect for me to bench boost if they do.

                    They would need to open training ground by tomorrow latest to play I think which looks very unlikely atm
