The Scout Squad’s best players to own for FPL Double Gameweek 19

The Scout Squad are back to pick their best players for Double Gameweek 19 – fresh from the recent changes to the fixtures.

The assets listed will then be narrowed down to a squad of 15 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83.0m) for the weekly Scout Picks selection ahead of the FPL deadline at 11:00 GMT on Saturday.

In each writer’s squad, there are requirements for at least:

  • One goalkeeper costing £5.0m or less
  • One sub-£5.0m defender
  • One midfielder listed at £6.5m or below
  • One forward priced at £7.5m or lower

Each panelist is also restricted to no more than three players from the same team, as is the case in FPL.

We will again be adding a captaincy to the Scout Picks, with details of that revealed on Friday.

Most popular picks: João Cancelo, Vladimir Coufal, Kevin De Bruyne, Bruno Fernandes, Jamie Vardy, Michail Antonio (four), Rúben Dias, Andrew Robertson, Mohamed Salah, Tomas Soucek (three).

TOM SAID…

I’ve doubled up on Manchester City’s defence again this week, ahead of back-to-back home games against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa. Pep Guardiola’s side have now given up just three goals in their last 14 matches in all competitions, and are yet to concede with Ederson, Rúben Dias and John Stones in the line-up. João Cancelo is also given the nod, and though he isn’t assured of two starts, is worth the risk given his attacking numbers. 

West Ham United also get a defensive double-up from me, via Lukasz Fabiański and Vladimír Coufal. The Hammers have proved difficult to break down in recent matches, while their double includes games against Burnley and West Bromwich Albion, two of the worst attacking teams in the league.

Keepers Edouard Mendy and Bernd Leno, plus defenders Andrew Robertson and Ben Chilwell complete the picks at the back.

Further forward, it’s hard to overlook Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah, Bruno Fernandes and Jamie Vardy, and their inclusion needs little explanation, so I’ll focus on some of my other picks.

Ademola Lookman is something of a left-field inclusion given his fixtures, but if Fulham are going to get anything from this double, he’ll be involved, while West London rivals Chelsea are perhaps being overlooked. They’ve come in for some criticism after a run of one win in six league games, but overall performances haven’t been too bad. Hakim Ziyech has now started back-to-back games, and when fit is the one who can make things happen.

I’m also backing Michail Antonio. Though he looks short of match fitness, he needs games, and as West Ham United’s only recognised striker, should see enough minutes across the two fixtures. However, including him means there is no room for team-mate Tomáš Souček, which is a little unfortunate. It goes without saying I think he’s a quality option though.

The squad is completed by Harry Kane and Patrick Bamford, who despite having just the one fixture have the potential to outscore most other forwards this week, plus Anthony Martial

ANDY SAID…

It is not often you come up with a squad to submit and find yourself trying to put in more than three West Ham players. They arguably have the best set of fixtures in Gameweek 19 – Burnley (home) and West Brom (home). 

Michail Antonio is a bit of a favourite of mine and now he’s fit and got through 90 minutes I can’t leave him out. He’s averaging 0.47xG per 90 minutes so fat this season. It’s down on 2019/20, but still excellent given his price. The fixtures are too good to ignore defensively as well. 

No-one has scored fewer goals than Burnley’s nine so far, with West Brom only scoring two more with 11. A double-up on defence is certainly an option but with Tomas Soucek taking up a cheap spot in midfielder I’ve only picked Vladimir Coufal

In their last six matches Coufal has created 11 chances, that’s six more than Aaron Cresswell.

We’re still waiting on news of a potential injury to Anthony Martial after limping off against Burnley, but if he does miss the next couple of games it would seem very likely that Edinson Cavani will play as central forward. 

We’ve seen limited minutes from the Uruguayan so far but he’s shown promising numbers with 0.59xG per 90 minutes. The Liverpool game is tough for anyone but if he could nick a goal there he’d then look to top up the FPL points for the week against Fulham.

There is obviously a risk with picking Aston Villa players because we don’t know who may have tested positive and won’t be available but given they are now playing Newcastle I’ve added a couple into the squad for consideration with Emiliano Martínez and Ollie Watkins

No regularly playing goalkeeper has a higher points per match than Martínez at 5.5, and with save potential against Manchester City followed by a Newcastle fixture you’d expect a clean sheet in there’s lots to be gained from him.

Despite only scoring one goal against Brighton it’s difficult to not triple up on Manchester City again with Kevin De Bruyne being the only attacker I’d be confident of predicting a start for. They are showing no signs of stopping when it comes to defensive returns and I think Cancelo owners will be hopeful of an attacking return soon enough. 

Interestingly he only created one chance against Brighton and had one shot in the box, but seeing his positioning from the eye test, he’s sure to be involved soon.

GEOFF SAID…

Barring any future Double Gameweek 19 fixture changes, my selections come from teams with two fixtures in the round; whether or not my picks will start both fixtures is, as always, unclear.

I continue to look for value in my goalkeepers to enable a stronger attack: Sam Johnstone and Emiliano Martinez are therefore my top picks before I look to Alisson, who has the highest points potential.

Trent Alexander-Arnold looks the best option in defence with hugely promising underlying stats, particularly over the last 4 games. João Cancelo continues to look threatening and should see attacking returns soon, and City have two strong Double Gameweek 19 fixtures. John Stones, Vladimir Coufal, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are also worthwhile options.

Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne are the top midfield picks this week, slightly ahead of Bruno Fernandes and his four yellow cards. Tomas Soucek is a strong pick and will insultingly be called a ‘no-brainer’ by many pundits, while Anwar El Ghazi is another budget enabler.

In attack I first look to Jamie Vardy, who I expect will be fit and will score well – while not a captaincy option for me, as I’ll look to my midfield, he may be a shrewd armband contender for those looking for a punt. Callum Wilson, Ollie Watkins, and Michail Antonio look a nicely-priced trio, while Anthony Martial is a differential for those looking to United for a double in the Double. 

DAVID SAID…

I am expecting Sam Johnstone and Alphonse Areola to use their respective pair of fixtures to rack up the saves in Double Gameweek 19.

The two goalkeepers are both inside the top five for stops this season (74 and 59) and face opponents that are sure to create chances against them.

I will be keeping my eye on injury updates from West Ham on Friday though. If David Moyes rules out Lukasz Fabianski then I will be very keen on the kindly-priced Darren Randolph.

Manchester City have conceded three goals in their last 13 matches in all competitions which is why a defensive double-up of Rúben Dias and João Cancelo is so appealing, especially as I’m not particularly taken with attacking options outside of Kevin De Bruyne.

Vladimir Coufal has incredibly kind home fixtures against low-scoring Burnley and West Bromwich Albion. He has also created more chances than any West Ham player over their last four matches.

Reece James looks set for a return to the Chelsea starting line-up ahead of facing Fulham and Leicester. Over his last four matches, he is joint-top among Blues assets for big chances created, the most of any Chelsea defender in that time too.

De Bruyne is an obvious inclusion considering his nailed-on role in the Manchester City team for those appealing home matches.

The fact that Raheem Sterling missed a late penalty against Brighton, in my view, reinforces the Belgian’s place in the spot-kick pecking order.

Speaking of penalties, Liverpool and Fulham have both given up five each this season – only Leeds (six) and Brighton (seven) have conceded more at the time of writing.

The fact that Bruno Fernandes faces both of those sides in Double Gameweek 19 makes his credentials seriously worth considering, especially as he is set for two road trips. The Portuguese international has pulled in 54.5% of his FPL points away from home this season.

Considering Mohamed Salah’s problems in front of goal recently, I am going for his team-mate Sadio Mané in my selection.

Over their last four matches, the Senegalese international has outshone Salah for touches in the box, key passes, big chances created and shots in the box.

Crucially, Mané also has matched Salah’s output for attacking returns over the same period (three) for a cheaper price and has fewer blanks during that time too.

I am very willing to take a risk on Michail Antonio ahead of West Ham’s appealing fixtures considering their decision to sell Sebastien Haller to Ajax on a permanent deal.

I also really fancy the single Gameweek fixtures of Harry Kane and Patrick Bamford and will be taking them both into Double Gameweek 19 to face Sheffield United (away) and Brighton (home) respectively.

    Best DGW keeper for up to 5.9:

    1. Mendy
    2. Martinez
    3. Johnstone
    4. Areola
    5. Shmeichel
    6. Allison
    7. DeGea

    I'm looking to swap DCL for Antonio hence Fabianski isn't in the list

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Martinez

    2. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Martinez (good to have after as well)

  2. Adderz
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Coufal(c). Pray for me.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Good luck - would prefer Cresswell for captain but Coufal has actually been getting more crosses in recently

    2. Abra Dubravka
      • 2 Years

      Love it. Good luck

    3. Tomerick

      No TC?

    4. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No

    5. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I don't hate it as the fixtures are good. I just don't think there is enough upside especially given the other options.

      I'm also not one to go against C a defender. I've C Baines, TAA, Robbo, and Cech in gameweeks before but don't think Coufal is attacking enough.

      1. Adderz
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        It's been my tradition to captain defenders in DGW. It's always paid off, apart from a when I captained a certain Brighton CB we don't talk about.

        1. Deulofail
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 5 days ago

          I captained Cech in a DGW once. Was fine

        2. Rhodes your boat
          • 5 Years

          God same ahaha what were we thinking

    6. Forever In Our Shadow

      Insanity.

    7. Rochdale_Cowboy
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Coufail

  3. Abra Dubravka
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Current team:
    Martinez, Pope*
    Robbo*, Zouma, Coufal, Dallas*, KWP*
    Salah, Bruno, Son*, Soucek, Rafinha*
    Bamford, DCL*, Adams*

    Potential WC:
    Martinez, Forster
    Dias*, Zouma, Coufal, Stones*, Holding*
    Salah, Bruno, KDB*, Soucek, Grealish*
    Bamford, Vardy*, Davis*

    Worth using my WC to get City, Grealish and Vardy?

    1. Royal5
      • 10 Years

      No

  4. Salah’s Sonnet
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Just thought I’d ask again as limited replies.

    Do we think Stones plays both games in DGW?

    Already have Dias, so it’s either a double up with Dias or get Coufal

    Cheers

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Yup - Pep can makes changes in the cup vs Cheltenham

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        But I prefer Coufal over Stones this GW

    2. Sarri-ball
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I think stones plays both can rest da cup

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I think he does, Laporte and ake both injured and they centre Half’s aren’t expending much energy in these games Against weak teams

      IMO

    4. Heisenberg W. W.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Coufal isnt a bad alternative at all

    5. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I think so - Laporte and Ake injured. Only concern would be Fer getting a start at CB but seems unlikely.

    6. Yes Ndidi
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I think so. It's the FBs that could easily be playing 1 game each.

    7. Abra Dubravka
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Yep. Laporte and Ake injured

    8. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Thanks very much everyone, great replies there, may very well go for stones then alongside soucek

  5. Henryyy

    What would you do here? Any help much appreciated

    Martinez
    Robbo Coufal Dallas
    KDB Grealish Son Bruno Salah
    Adams Bamford

    4m - Holding Mitchell Brewster

    A Adams to Antonio -4
    B Adams Holding to fodder Dias/Cancelo
    C Something else?

    Thanks

    I'll try again...

    I'm all set to get the BB out of the way, but the Leeds postponement was a kick in the nuts.
    1.8m ITB, 1FT

    Martinez (DDG)
    Dias, Stones, Coufal (Dallas, Zouma)
    KDB, Bruno, Son, Soucek (Raphinia)
    Bamford, Vardy, Antonio

    A) Raphinia -> El Gazi
    B) DDG & Raphinia -> Johnstone & Pogba/Grealish (-4)
    C) Save FT
    D) Anything else?

    Cheers all

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I would save and BB

    2. sminkypinky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I’d probably save and not bb

      1. 2OLEgend
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Really? As I said, I want to get the BB out of the way so I can focus on my starting 11. You recon Raphinia will outscore El Gazi in DGW19?

    3. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Easy bb for me

    4. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years

      A looks good for it.

    5. Mok
      • 10 Years

      C with BB

    6. 2OLEgend
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Cheers. A bit surprised by the answers tbh. Can't see Raph getting much more than 3ptn

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Why did you buy him if you can’t see him scoring any points against Brighton at home

        1. 2OLEgend
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 5 days ago

          Because he was set for a extra game aganist a high SOU defence. Hes probably out of my team after GW19.

  7. RWB_1991
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Anyone thinking of playing TC this week and if so on who?

    1. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Yup - Could be KDB, Salah or Bruno. Honeslty all could do well.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Bruno a bit risky as he is on 4 YCs

        1. doher.ty
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 5 days ago

          True but still could be a good option (if he avoids a booking)

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      TC KDB I think

    3. Heisenberg W. W.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I'm sticking to BB but if i was to change my mind to TC it will probably be KdB

    4. Abra Dubravka
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Nope. Risky with Covid and fatigue

    5. Tomerick
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      KDB seems a safe bet. Soucek/Antonio for a punt.

  8. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    G2G?

    De Gea

    Robertson Dias Coufal Targett (Mitchell)

    Salah KDB(C) Bruno Son (ESR)

    Wilson Antonio (Brewster)

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Yeah, nice team

  9. arndff_
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Would that be too much?

    Taylor, Bissouma, Son, Adams > Stones, Soucek, KDB, Antonio (-12)

    BB: 12x 2 + 2x 1 (No 2nd GK)

    1. sminkypinky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Big risk. Could get it back though.

    2. Yes Ndidi
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Man for man they'll cover the 12 points, whether it's enough to justify the BB though......
      Probably just about.

    3. J ⚒ Gimme ur Mané
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Hi mate, hope you’re good!

      I’d do that for sure.

      Good luck, I’m BB this week too!

      1. arndff_

        9 months, 5 days ago

        Oh, mate -- hi! It's been a long time.

        Think you've changed your nickname but I managed to recognize you.

        BBing without 2nd GK sucks a bit but won't go for -16 surely.

        Good luck to you as well! If you'd like to chat, you know where to find me: twitter.com/FPL_arndff

  10. Salarrivederci

    Rash + Son -> Salah + Barnes (-4)?

    Areola
    AWB - Dias - Stones - Coufal
    Salah - KDB - Bruno - Barnes
    Kane - Antonio

    (Martinez, Holding, Smith Rowe, Brewster)

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I don't think so

    2. Abra Dubravka
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Nice!

  11. Traction Engine Foot
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    My team is full of reds, yellows and oranges but I don't think it's that bad overall. Which of these moves looks best?

    A DCL to Antonio
    B DCL to Cavani
    C DCL, McCarthy to Antonio, Ederson -4
    D DCL, Martin to Antonio, Martinez -4

    McCarthy
    Dias, Cresswell, Robertson, Taylor
    Salah, Grealish, Bruno, KDB, Raphinha
    Bamford

    Martin, Kilman, Welbeck, DCL

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Difficult one. Currently with not much info on villa players, it's a case of don't buy don't sell. Antonio is a gamble but prob the best option in that price bracket with the double. I do like the Cavani pick.

    2. Heisenberg W. W.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I am actually pondering D myself

      CT

      McCarthy (Martin)
      Coufal-Taylor-Konsa-Dallas-Holding
      Son-Kdb-Bruno-Salah-Soucek
      Bamford-DCL-Adams

      1. Traction Engine Foot
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Yes, I think it's the one I'm leaning to. I just know that if I bench McCarthy he'll save a pen or something though

        1. Heisenberg W. W.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 5 days ago

          I don't have that dilemma as I am still minded to proceed with my BB

          1. Traction Engine Foot
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 5 days ago

            In that case, I'd definitely do it

    Worth BB this team with a -8? 11DGW and 4 SGW players

    Balbuena, Son and Kane to Cresswell, Salah and Vardy (-8)

    Martinez
    Coufal Cancelo Stones Cresswell
    Bruno KDB Soucek Salah
    Vardy Bamford*
    (Johnstone Raphinha* Rodrigo* Holding*)

    1. Heisenberg W. W.

      Tempted to press the BB with a similar strategy of -8 with 9DGW and 6SGW

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Close one. I might use it just to get it out the way. Bench had decent fixtures

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 5 days ago

          Same i feel like my SGW* players have decent fixtures even after transfers

          McCarthy*-Martinez
          Coufal-Taylor-Konsa-Dallas*-Holding*
          Son*-Kdb-Bruno-Salah-Soucek
          Bamford*-Antonio-Adams*

    2. Yes Ndidi

      Definitely. I'm about to BB with 11+4 on a -8.

    Is it possible for Spurs to get a dwg in 19? I saw some post but just wanting some clarity.

    Watkins or Antonio for one week only (this week coming)?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Antonio

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Antonio in the basis we don't have much info on villa players

    3. Heisenberg W. W.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Antonio

  15. Tsparkes10
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Bb or nah? :/

    Martinez
    Dias Justin Coufal
    Son Bruno Salah Soucek
    Vardy Bamford Antonio
    (Johnstone, Lowton, Raph, Dallas)

    1. sminkypinky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      It’s not bad imo.

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      On the limit. Prob yes just to get the chip out the way. You have decent players on the bench

  16. jdp219
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    McCarthy*
    Coufal, Targett, Chilwell
    Bruno, KDB, Salah, Grealish, Soucek
    Wilson, Bamford*
    (Forster; KWP*, Kilman, DCL)
    * = single gameweek

    1FT, 0.3itb
    1) McCarthy > Johnstone/Areola
    2) DCL > Watkins/Antonio
    3) Save

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      2 with Antonio

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Or Chillwell, McCarthy to Stones, De gea?

      1. jdp219
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Oh, interesting. Honestly hadn't considered a hit. Was just trying to address the single gameweekers.

    3. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Tbh DCL to Antonio frees up funds tbh. I’d do that and then upgrade McCarthy to ederson or ddg

    Anyone know when the next DGW is after gw19?

    1. OBAMA
      • 6 Years

      try a fortune teller

    2. jdp219

      Not even sure Ben Crellin knows at this point.

  18. estheblessed
    • 6 Years

    Is anyone playing their wild card this week?

    I played my Free hit last week and am thinking of doing so, is it crazy talk?

    1. OBAMA
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I'm doing it. That's what it's there for. I'll worry about the future in the you know.. future. lol

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Your team must be in bad shape if you are considering WC. Probably should've WC in 18

      1. OBAMA
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        I would've WC'd in 18 if I'd known Leeds dgw would be pulled. Hindsight is 2020 tony my friend

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 5 days ago

          That's true but still good enough fixture to not play the WC if you have triple Leeds

  19. OBAMA
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    WIll dias and stones play both dgw matches?

    1. sminkypinky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I’d put a little money on it even though it’s Pep.

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Don't see why not. Both nailed and I think Laporte and ake are injured

      1. OBAMA
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        says laporte back 20th jan

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 5 days ago

          Still injured. I can't see Pep disrupting that partnership and rushing laporte back. He will play the FA Cup game on the 26th

  20. TimoTime
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Anyone know why KDB took the pen and do we assume he is straight back on them after Sterling missed?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Pep said he was tired and didn't feel he could take the pen

    2. OBAMA
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      pep said he was tired haha. Yep KDB will be back on pens most likely

      1. TimoTime
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        I see, Okay that's good

    3. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Confusing question

      1. OBAMA
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        is it?

        1. TimoTime
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 5 days ago

          Yeh it's really not is it, cheers for your input

          1. Pitch Perfect
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 5 days ago

            I think it's cos you said KDB took the pen. When he didn't.

            1. TimoTime
              • 2 Years
              9 months, 5 days ago

              Leave me alone 🙁

                • 1 Year
                9 months, 5 days ago

                It was confusing tbh but we understood what you meant.

          2. Royal5
            • 10 Years

            Spell check

    4. Yes Ndidi
      • 2 Years

      By the time they get their next one Aguero will be back.

  21. sminkypinky
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    DCL to Antonio worth a hit or just play Bamford?

    1. OBAMA
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      play pb9

    2. The Tinkerman
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Same thought here, keeping Bamford

    3. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Play Bamford

    4. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Play Bamford

    5. sminkypinky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Pretty much agreed then. Cheers all!

  22. lekalatch
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Current FH team:

    Alisson
    Cancelo Cresswell Coufal
    Salah KDB Bruno Gundogan
    Vardy Antonio Watkins

    Want to punt on a Villa player, currently on Watkins. But would you fancy El Ghazi or Traore more?

  23. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Kane and Son to Antonio and Salah for a hit ?

    1. OBAMA
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      close one.. I'd say yes. No way of getting salah and keeping kane?

    2. Ohh1454
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I’d say yes, spurs play Liverpool after this week so should be fine

  24. Wild Guus Chase
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Got Maddy (thank God he's fit to play) and Justin. Is Vardy overkill? I really want him.

    1. OBAMA
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I dont like the sound of tripple L dogs personally

      1. Wild Guus Chase
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Vardy would replace Kane who even though he's a single GWer, I don't want to lose!

  25. Ohh1454
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Is triple captain Kdb a good shout or could he be rested for one of the games ?

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Risky.

    2. Guru Mediation
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Rested and/or Villa may still not be ready to play/have more positive tests

  26. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Who scores more?

    A. Kane (shu)
    B. Werner (ful, lei)

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Draw

    2. Ohh1454
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I wouldn’t go near Werner tbh keep Kane if that’s the case.

    3. JBG
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Kane

    4. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      A

  27. balint84
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    3 to the bench, 1 to play
    A) kwp
    B) dallas
    C) decordova-reid
    D) lowton

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      C

    2. Guru Mediation
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      C

    3. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Confusing question

    4. Yes Ndidi
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Play C imo.

  28. Footieboot
      9 months, 5 days ago

      a) Kane + Son --> Antonio + Salah (-4)
      b) DCL + Son --> Brewster + Salah (-4)
      c) Kane + Son + DCL --> Watkins + Antonio + Salah (-8)

      All seem very close points wise. Which one would you do?

    • Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Pick one:

      A) A fit again R. James
      B) Creswell in a defensive double up with Coufal.

      1. Ohh1454
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        B

      2. aleksaa2
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        B

      3. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        B - James fitness is a risk and can't see him playing both games

    • Rochdale_Cowboy
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Let me answer the oft asked question.
      No, its not worth a 8-12 point hit to fill your team with s--t from West ham, so that you can BB
      Instead wildcard, and then BB for a later dgw. You're welcome
