‘Enjoy the ride, adapt and stop planning’ – FPL’s reigning India winner says to focus on the short-term

The Double Gameweeks are here.

But it hasn’t been a smooth ride. Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers have had so many unexpected detours (a lot of off-roading) on the way, but battered, bruised and with a lot of dents, we’re finally here.

Just know that you are not the only ones facing these twists and turns. It won’t be the last time unexpected rescheduling happens either.

FPL managers all over the globe have been meandering their way through these unexpected times and you’ve just got to enjoy the ride and adapt. It’s the only option you have really.

So what do I intend to do differently? First off, stop planning. Be more short-sighted. Normally, when making moves, I look at the next five to six Gameweeks.

Instead, I am going to play for the points available and have a more short-term approach when planning my moves.

This means I’ll likely look at the next three Gameweeks when making my moves and no more than that.

Why? We could literally have unexpected cancellations and changes (Double Gameweeks) at any time. So planning mid-term doesn’t have much value in my opinion.

Secondly, and I have said this multiple times this season, I’m all for wanting to chase price rises, but honestly, I can’t say it enough, this is the season to delay your transfers as far as possible.

The fantasy landscape is changing daily and new bits of information are appearing on a daily basis, which might drastically affect your transfer strategy.

You might think that your transfers might not be affordable the next day, but when you look closer, there is always another way.

Has the recent Double Gameweek news for Aston Villa and Newcastle and the lack of a double for Leeds United and Southampton changed my plans?

FPL Transfer Traps Gameweek 6 1

I currently own only Patrick Bamford (£6.6m) from the two teams and before Blank Gameweek 18, I sold Jack Grealish (£7.7m) and Che Adams (£6.0m).

I had heard murmurs of the Leeds vs Southampton game being called off and I just don’t trust the fitness of Villa’s players and the lure of two premium Manchester big hitters was too much for me.

It was a gamble and it won’t be the last time I’ll need to roll the dice this season.

It just seems like a season of difficult decisions given the sheer number of consistent big hitters but it is what it is.

Just a small note on Aston Villa, the nature of the COVID-19 outbreak is unknown at the time of writing and we don’t necessarily know how the squad has been affected.

It is a very thin squad that is very reliant on 10 to 14 players and if the majority of the first team squad is affected, I don’t know how much I’d trust them.

Keeping this in mind, their players come into the don’t buy/ don’t sell category for me until we know more about them.

Auto Draft 1

Speaking of difficult decisions, one big decision that FPL managers will likely be making this season is whether to sell Son Heung-min (£9.8m) or Harry Kane (£11.1m) for a premium Double Gameweek asset in Gameweek 19.

The one thing I’ll say is if you’re doing it to get in a premium big hitter like Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) or Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) who are genuine captaincy options, then it makes sense to me.

If not, it becomes a very difficult decision (one that might not necessarily be the right one) given their fixture in Gameweek 19.

Then it comes down to gut and the kind of FPL manager you are.

If I was to hold one of Son or Kane, at the moment I’d lean towards holding Son primarily because of the price difference.

I see a lot of people selling their Arsenal and Leeds United assets for Double Gameweek players.

It is important to not have the blinkers on for the doubles because both of these teams in addition to Spurs have very good games in Gameweek 19 and it might not be the smartest thing to sell them just to buy additional minutes in the Double Gameweek.

You need to look at the next couple of Gameweeks while making these decisions and then make the call.

A few things I have noticed in the last few weeks is that players like Son, Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) and KDB have looked very tired in the last 30 minutes of games and I feel like in comparison, Liverpool and Chelsea both having some time off will play into their hands.

I’m personally expecting an upturn in performances for both of these teams in the coming weeks.

Having some time on the training ground with the full team without playing games can be underestimated and I think that will show.

It is worth noting Chelsea have all their players fit now including their full-backs and it’s easy to forget that when they, along with Hakim Ziyech (£8.1m) were fit, Chelsea were creating chances for fun.

They have a decent looking Double Gameweek (both Leicester and Fulham are in the worst five teams for big chances conceded at home this season) and I quite like their fixtures in the mid-term as well.

There are some good picks in that team both in attack and in defence should you fancy it.

Some of you are wondering about whether you should Bench Boost or not.

In my opinion if you have players from the likes of Leeds who have a good Gameweek 19 fixture, I’d still use the chip and play the Bench Boost.

The case for you to Bench Boost is even stronger, especially if you have used your Free Hit chip in Gameweek 18.

I say that is the case because if you wildcard in Gameweek 25 for the Double Gameweek in 26, your bench spots will need to be likely focused on Blank Gameweek 29 and that is something to consider while you’re making your decision.

Otherwise, one of the prime advantages of having used the Bench Boost chip is so that it’s out of the way and you can focus funds on your starting 11 (plus two bench spots) rather than spreading them over 15 players.

It is very difficult to give an answer with regards to this conundrum because it is very team dependant but generally when it comes to using your chips, there will be many more mini Double Gameweeks in play the way the season is going, so there are going to be more opportunities than you think for chip deployment.

I intentionally decide to just talk a little bit of macro-philosophy with this article ahead of the Double Gameweek but all of you are aware of the numbers and the good picks so I thought it might be worthwhile to outline a few things that might not have caught your attention.

I’ve been making steady progress with my season after a terrible start.

Despite having games called off for my Manchester City and Spurs assets and despite not deploying my Free Hit chip in Gameweek 18, I’ve climbed from a 3.1 million Overall Rank (OR) in Gameweek 12 to a 1.54 million OR at present.

I was very happy to get a 300,000 sized green arrow in Gameweek 18 despite taking a hit, owning nine players and not deploying the Free Hit chip which tells you that quality matters over quantity.

If the odds are stacked against you in a particular Gameweek in terms of numbers of players, it still isn’t the end of the world because if you have the right players, you could still climb up the table.

Also, it is worth mentioning that Zophar & I had the pleasure of interviewing the creator of LiveFPL.net recently and it was a pleasure getting to chat with Ragabolly.

He’s a PHD in quantum physics and still claims to not be a genius.

He’s a very humble guy and it’s an interview worth watching if you haven’t already. You can see it here.

We also did our standard podcast of The FPL Wire where we talk about Double Gameweek 19 in depth which you will find below. Thanks for reading and good luck this Gameweek!

    I’m following my gut and going KDB triple captain. Anyone else with me?

    1. Wild Guus Chase
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Nah currently on Cresswell captain

    2. pstokes2010
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Yep. It’s a very good time to pick it. Later in the season there will be Champions League fixtures.

    3. JBG
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Yes, most likely. Took a -8 hit too bring him in.

    4. FourLokoLeipzig

      I’m with you mate

  2. Hulk Smash
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    1) Can we assume all Villa's players will be back fit and available by the time they play, which is next Wednesday?

    2) Are we waiting on any more expected postponements / rearranged games for GW 19?

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I'd love to help but I've no idea

    2. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I want to BB but I've got triple Villa. Someone please help.

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        They didnt release the names of those affected

      2. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Only one we know that got it is Trezeguet because he tweeted that he did

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 10 days ago

      1. I don’t think you can assume that no, you can take a reasonable guess that way but still question marks over how fit they are and if anyone is still sick or suffering because of it

      2. There was talk of sou/Leeds but it’s died off so nothing

      I would go for the bb I think but that’s me

      1. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Cheers Steve and Kenneth

    4. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I'd be more screwed on the MCI side if Villa can't play Wednesday - reckon Villa should be good by the Newcastle game, which is the one where the points should come from

  3. jimbo90
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Would you bench boost:

    Johnstone Bamford Struijk Brewster?

    1. Heisenberg W. W.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 10 days ago

      No

    2. matiakez
      • 10 Years

      No

    3. joey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Good heavens no

    4. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Absolutely not.

    5. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Definite no

    6. jimbo90
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      thought not. thanks all

  4. The Count of Monte Cristo
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Is Kane + Raphinha --> KDB (c) + Brewster for a (-4) a positive move?

    Meslier
    R. Dias* -- Coufal* -- Justin*
    Salah* -- Fernandes* -- Son -- Soucek* -- Raphinha
    Bamford -- Kane

    McCarthy -- Dier -- Adams -- Holding [1FT + 0.4m ITB]

    1. PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      As you have Son, I’d say so. Could have a high ceiling

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Merci, Pascal.

        Would you do Dier --> Stones for a (-4) as well?

  5. Niho992
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Bottomed. Cheers everyone.

    What to do here lads? 1 FT

    Johnstone
    Coufal-Dallas-TAA-Dias
    Raphinha-Salah(C)-Soucek-Bruno
    Kane-Bamford

    McCarthy-Adams-Perez-Balbuena

    Thinking to do Kane and Perez to KdB and fodder for -4 and save BB chip.

    Thoughts?

    1. PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Seems fair

      1. Niho992
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        So you would save chip?

        Also can took -8 hit, avoid KdB (risk yeah) and BB

        1. PascalCygan
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Save the chip if you’re bringing in fodder, and Balbuena still a doubt

          1. Niho992
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Cheers

  6. PascalCygan
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Bottomed sorry. Would you rather?

    A) DCL + Holding > Antonio + Stones
    B) DCL + Struijk > Antonio + Stones

    To BB or not to BB?

    Bench of McCarthy Justin Bamford and Holding / Struijk

    Anyone on that bench worth upgrading for -8? Or just no Bb?

    1FT 0.1ITB
    Martinez McCarthy
    Zouma Justin Holding Coufal Struijk
    Salah KdB Bruno Son Soucek
    Watkins Bamford DCL

    Thanks!

    1. Niho992
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      B.

      Yes

      1. PascalCygan
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Thank you. Would you change McCarthy for a further hit? Not sure if Johnstone etc would be worth it

        1. Niho992
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          I wouldnt especially if you have another WC. McCarthy is fine

          1. PascalCygan
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Thanks, I do, I’ll stick to the -4 then probably

        2. Yes Ndidi
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          I was considering McCarthy out for a hit for a DGW keeper, but decided against it. I don't think Johnstone will give you back the 4 points over Mac, let alone a profit.

          1. PascalCygan
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Yeah, that’s my worry. Fingers crossed Mac comes back in style

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Replied B and yes on previous page. 🙂 Nice team!

      1. PascalCygan
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Thank you!

    3. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      B and yes

      1. PascalCygan
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Cheers mate

    4. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      B and yes

      1. PascalCygan
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Nice one, thanks

  7. Only one Di Matteo
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Son + Adams -> KDB + Brewster for -4 worth it?
    I've got a decent 5th midfielder Soucek/Raphinha, so no problems with having Brewster sit on the bench

    1. PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Go for it

    2. Niho992
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Doing similiar with shiping Kane so yeah

    3. Sloane426
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I’m doing the same but for Davis 4.3m. Exact money. Same mids also

  8. grooveymatt65
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    How do you wildcard in fanteam.. does the option appear after you hit the update button?

    1. soumyeah
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      yes

      1. soumyeah
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        actually sorry nvmnd, i don't know what fanteam is

  9. BW25
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Is Ziyech to much of a left field pick for Captain for double gameweek?
    Have KDB , Son or Kane otherwise. Just a thought though.

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Too much, yes. Too many good options and too early to look for soemthing that drsatic

      1. BW25
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Just thinking it's been a strange few weeks and he's a terrific differential.

        1. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          If he had been playing regularly and was in form, yes, but neither of those have happened. And when you've got KDB and Salah with solid home fixtures, I just would not take the risk personally.

    2. MattysFantasyFooty
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Think so, he's already a big differential enough. However, if you're feeling it go for it DGWs are for taking punts and trying to gain the ranks

    3. W
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I wouldn't want to go with him over KDB etc. But fortune favours the brave!

  10. Hart-ake
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Planning to do Son to Salah and fund it through bringing in Antonio, but which one to bring him in for:

    a) Lacazette
    b) Kane (and bank the 2.8)

    1. Bagheri Arce
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      A all day

  11. W
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Should I be considering Abraham/Giroud over Antonio? Are either of them likely to play both?

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      All have similar risks so Antonio is fine as is I think

    2. TOLV TUMS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      if they do it's likely limited minutes. Real roll of the dice on that one.

    3. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Sounds like Werner will be playing up top

  12. Tmel
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Best striker (not Bamford) 7.1 or under for the medium term?

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I think it basically comes down to Wilson or Antonio.

  13. Ibralicious
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Martinez - Johnstone
    Chilwell - Stones - Bednarek* - Dallas* - Coufal
    Salah (C) - Bruno - Rashford - Grealish - Gundogan
    Kane* - Bamford* - Antonio

    *= SGW

    On a -8, how is this BB team looking? Any other hits needed?
    Cheers!

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Looks DGW-licious 🙂 Nice one!

      1. Ibralicious
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Thanks mate! Should I do Bednarek -> Dawson for another hit?

        1. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          No, I'd stick with Bednarek to be honest. Not sure how WBA will be after that Arsenal performance.

          1. The Count of Monte Cristo
            • 9 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Ignore me, Dawson isn't at WBA!

          2. The Count of Monte Cristo
            • 9 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Ignore me, Dawson isn't at WBA! I'd stick with Bednarek either way.

            1. Ibralicious
              • 7 Years
              8 months, 10 days ago

              Perfect, thanks for the tip!

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      So you’re benchboosting Johnstone, Bed, Dallas and Bamford? Looks okay I guess

      1. Ibralicious
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Worth squeezing in another DGwer in Dawson for Bednarek (-12)?

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Nah not Dawson

    3. PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Strong, good luck!

      1. Ibralicious
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Thanks!

  14. MattysFantasyFooty
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Thoughts?

    Wood, Son, McCarthy to Brewster, KDB, Martinez -8pt hit

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      KDB needs to do a LOT better than Son + Wood for that to pay off.

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      It's hard to say but you will likely want KDB for the fixtures in 20-22 as well so I'd lean to yes, especially if KDB(C) but it's close

  15. Tsparkes10
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    A) Son, Robo to KDB, Stones (-4, no bb)

    B) Mccarthy, Robo, Lowton, Adams to Martinez, Dias, Stones, Antonio (-12, bb with Johnstone, Dallas, Raph, Stones)

    1. Niho992
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      A

    2. More Cowbell
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      A. Better BB opportunity with GW26 doubles

    3. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      A

    4. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Would lean towards A, TS. That's not a bad bench though, so it's tough.

      1. Tsparkes10

        Exactly... think Adams to Antonio could pay off 8 points in itself. Then Lowton to stones easy 6. Tricky :/

          That's the thing, one Man City CS and a return from Antonio and you're in the green. Ugh, really tough.

          Do you think there'll be many other BB opportunities later on in the season?

            Potentially but not sure I want to focus my 2nd wc on a bb. Means less money in the starting 11... hmmm :/ Leeds Southampton on and it’d be so easy. Might just risk it. Means no kdb though

            1. The Count of Monte Cristo
              • 9 Years
              8 months, 10 days ago

              Yeah the LEE v SOU game hit me hard as well with 5 players between the two sides.

              I agree with your logic regarding the WC. I have such a low TV as well that I'm not sure I will be able to get a good BB later on.

                • 3 Years
                8 months, 10 days ago

                How you looking atm and what are your thoughts? Scary to think the bb will practically depend on Leeds vs Brighton so early in the gw

      Wouldn't want to lose Robbo for a hit. Any other downgrades to get KDB?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Only Salah, Vardy or Robo to downgrade tbh.

    3. V-2 Schneiderlin
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Nay for me - those fixtures aren’t that easy - Burnley could park the bus

    4. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Yay

  17. More Cowbell
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Just a quick A or B please guys:

    A) Son, Adams > KDB, Watkins (-4) and play Bamford

    B) Dallas, Son, Adams > Stones, Sterling, Watkins (-8) and bench Bamford

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      A

    2. V-2 Schneiderlin
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      A (Sterling not a great option imo)

  18. StayoutheSpiceZone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Do u like the look of this free hit team?

    Any changes? They all have doubles with Lascelles cover on the bench

    Martinez
    TAA Coufal Stones
    Salah KDB (c) Rashford Soucek Pulisic
    Antonio Vardy

    Thanks - gtg? Or any changes?

    1. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I'd personally prefer Cancelo to TAA and upgrade elsewhere

      Looks gtg - no Fernandes due to yellow card risk?

  19. Eastman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Play Bamford or Watkins?

    1. More Cowbell
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

    2. StayoutheSpiceZone

    8 months, 10 days ago

    GTG ?
    Balubuena + Son + Kane ---> KDB + Vardy + Shaw(or Targett or Pieteres)
    on this bunch for 2 hits and play BB (very low TV)

    Johnstone/ Mccarthy
    Stones / Coufal / Justin / Balbuena/ Dallas
    Son / Salah / Bruno / Raphina / Soucek
    Kane / Bamford / Adams

    1. MattysFantasyFooty
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Not sure about losing both could you just lose Kane?

      1. KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Balubuena + Raph + Kane ---> Pieteres + KDB + Antonio
        You think that's better?

        1. KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Antonio doens't look really fit thats why im a bit worried

  21. Firmino
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Kane
    Adams
    Raphinha
    Dallas

    To

    Antonio
    Watkins

    For -12

    Yay or nay?

    1. Viper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I wouldn't be bringing in a Villa player for a hit personally. We don't know who they can field yet. The rest looks good

  22. Big Ronnie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Can't decide if I should get KDB or not.

    Martinez*
    Robbo*, Dias*, Coufal*
    Salah*, Mane*, Bruno*, Grealish*, Soucek*
    Bamford, Watkins*

    Peacock-Farrell, Dallas, Adams, Balbuana

    A) Balbuana to Stones/James (bench Bamford)
    B) Mane to KDB
    C) Save

    1. soumyeah
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      for this week and going forward wouldn't you rather have KDB instead of double LFC attack? 5 great fixtures

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Yeah true. Still not convinced by the city back to best talk and KDB was knackered at the end of last game. Can see him getting reduced mins.

    2. TOLV TUMS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Same quandary - I actually booted Salah to get him in, City's fixtures this week are just farrrrrr better and I think Liv/Utd is going be a trench war. Can't decide.

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Pool rested plus KDB looking knackered has me doubting it.

    3. PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I think B could work out. Better 19 fixtures and afterwards.

      Could do A as well?

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Could do both for -4. Mid term would probably pay off

        1. PascalCygan
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          I think so. Stones and KDB could both pay it back with interest

          1. Big Ronnie
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Cheers. Think I'll go for it.

            1. PascalCygan
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 10 days ago

              Nice one, go well!

  23. Fernandito
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Martinez Fabianski
    Cresswell Robertson Dias Stones Maguire
    Salah Foden Bruno Son Raphinha
    Antonio Watkins Bamford

    Best captain choice? Salah?

    1. Firmino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Yes

  24. soumyeah
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    who score more non-bonus points this dgw?

    Pope or Areola?

  25. Jdpz
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Will Martial play?
    Wood to Antonio for a hit?

  26. Viper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Anyone reckon Walker starts at right back to deal with Zaha? He's done very well on him in the past. Cancelo to left back possibly or maybe (whisper it) rested?

    1. PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      If not this week, I think Walker’s return could cost Cancelo minutes at some point soon

  27. Punty McPuntface
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Thoughts on El Ghazi now Villa are back?

    1. lugs
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      i have him, i'm worried about his minutes now that Barkley should be back

    2. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Has there been a presser from aston villa? I'd like to know which players affected by the coronavirus

  28. Tmel
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Bench one:

    a) Antonio
    b) Chilwell
    c) Bamford

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Probably Bamford, but it could be Antonio as well because of his fitness issue..

    Toss up between replacing Dier or Dallas with Stones. Is it mad to consider keeping Dallas over a Spurs defender? Leeds can't defend for toffee but Dallas has some goal threat, the issue is I don't know if he would play most weeks so could easily bench a goal

    1. Taff1952
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I've done dier to stones. Spurs fixtures not too good and dallas good bench player

  30. Niho992

    Is it safe to get KdB now or wait till tomorrow?
