Can FPL managers trust Crystal Palace defenders with appealing fixtures?

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers have long been able to turn to Crystal Palace’s defensive assets for cheap returns.

The Eagles, marshalled by veteran Roy Hodgson, have hit double-figures for clean sheets in the last two seasons, and also carried set piece potential.

But this season, the well appeared to have run dry, with Palace only recording three clean sheets thus far.

More worryingly, the Selhurst Park outfit were also on the end of two Christmas stuffings, losing 7-0 to Liverpool and being outplayed by 10 men in their 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa.

But since the Villa defeat, Palace’s defence has shown signs of recovery, with encouraging performances against Leicester and Arsenal.

We are taking a deep dive into the stats to see if Palace can once again be relied upon for cheap defensive returns.

    1ft 0.6m. A or B?

    A) Coufal --> Stones
    B) Chilwell --> Stones

    1. McSauce

      I could also do Chilwell --> Dias.

      Don't think I'd do either

        really no stones?

        A - hammers defence were only in my team for the DGW - not a permanent fixture!

      • ow00019

        A if it has to be one of those two. Think coufal is fine for the next 5 or so weeks though.

          Guys, I think Chelsea will turn a corner now. Good defensive fixtures for the next 6

      Anyone else fpl app having issue such that i capt sterling and it keep showinf me 8 instead of 16..

        Ye that is just the app, desktop or safari/google on your phone should also be correct.

        However your points total will still be correct. I have same with KDB (TC) shows - 7

      2. BeWater
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I triple captained Stones but it's showing me that I still have Lowton in that spot and Salah (c). Formal complaint being prepared for FPL towers.

          Seen lots having that issue. I'd update or delete & redownload the app as a first port of call.

          If that still doesn't work, I'd just stop using the app. It has historically been very buggy. The mobile website version of the game is just as good if not better.

        Been playing around with some heavy hitter drafts.

        Thoughts on this:

        Martinez Johnstone
        Stones Shaw Coufal Dallas Mitchell
        Salah KdB Fernandes Son ESR
        Kane Antonio Davis

        I have exact cash for something like this. If I get priced out I can always do Johnstone > 4.0m and delay the BB until later.

        Put my high team value to use here. All 5 big hitters!

        1. BeWater
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Certainly won't be struggling for a captaincy option for the rest of the season! ESR, Mitchell and Stones can really enable a decent team.

          • Catastrophe
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Looks great. I have something similar but with Soucek for ESR, Dias for Shaw but Douglas and Steer for Dallas and Johnstone. If ESR continues as he is then I'll likely get him in for Soucek and upgrade the bench like yours. Are you already setting up the Team for DGW26 and saving WC?

          • Apwilkin
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 24 days ago

            A lot of firepower there. I Assume you would rotate between a 352 and 442 depending on fixtures?

          • waltzingmatildas
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Like it! That team value!

          • No Professionals
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Of course it looks good. Is it wildcarding to get to it? My concern would be any future bench boost may be difficult (with Davis in particular). Unless you sacrifice a full bench boost to maximise points in other weeks, which obviously is an option (a better option).

            The other problem is that players like Mitchell and SR can flip flop between being nailed and out of the first team very easily, with very few other options.

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              I'm only 3 transfers away from this. Could plan for it in GW23.

          • thegaffer82
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            It's pretty awesome to be fair. But, I would definitely lose Kane or Son and just make a couple of changes (second City Dfer in for Dallas & Son > Grealish for all his future doubles - ESR I'm not sure about, but it's not a biggie, you can even play 4-4-2 some weeks)

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Actually, the whole point is that I want Kane + Son in GW21 or 23. The fixtures start swinging to benefit Spurs and they'll have the best DGW 26.

            2 months, 24 days ago

            Would mean selling Dias for me, haven't checked If I could afford it.

            1. Baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Affordable, but too many transfers. Could actually even keep Dias, but it isn't flexible at all if something happens.

            I was looking at this guy with 110m TV and actually not a rubbish rank for once
            https://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/3997355/history

            Using the team planner and a WC I could get:

            Martinez
            Stones Cancelo Shaw
            Salah KDB Fernandes Son Grealish
            Kane Antonio

            Forster Mitchell Brewster Kilman

            Power 5 mid and Kane - pretty nice!

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Yeah that's pretty nuts. I wish I could have that defense... Yeah that team I think if you set and forget it with KdB or Fernandes as (c) would finish in the top 50K if you started in the top 1M. It might even make top 10K. It has everything.

              Depends on his sales value, didn't check his team though.

            I'm looking at moving to something very similar over the next couple of weeks actually, maybe with a hit or two to make the most of it until WC25:

            Martinez | Steer
            Stones | Chilwell* | Bednarek | Coufal | Alioski*
            KDB | Salah | Son | Bruno | Soucek*
            Antonio | Bamford* | Brewster

            Chilwell > Shaw
            Soucek > Gundogan
            Alioski > Mitchell
            Bamford > Kane

            Leaves 0.6itb for a 2nd BB keeper.

            I've been playing 352 all season and it's worked for me, as long as the 2 sub defenders are good.

          • 10 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Which 2 or 3 of these would you be aiming for over the next couple of weeks?
          A) mitchell
          B) stones
          C) Justin
          D) digne
          E) j. Rodriguez
          F) barnes/maddison
          G) mount
          H) dcl/richarlison

          1. The Road to Turfdom
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Stones as first priority

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            None of those are really standout options except Stones.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Depends a lot on your current team and structure

            All mentioned defenders are decent but would only bring them in if your current defense is not that great

            Same goes for attackers
            James or DCL only if some sign of form in their next match
            Don't fancy Mount that much
            Maddison/Vardy from Leicester

          4. SilentLemonMan
              2 months, 24 days ago

              B C F - in that order

            Ben Crellin suggests there is a 50% chance that at least 1 team doubles in GW26 and also plays their BGW29 fixture. That would make WC25, BB26 much better for those without a free hit.

            If even 2 teams double in 26 and play in 29 then you can get 6 players who play in BGW29 on WC25 and then use the next 3 transfers from 26-29 to get out at least 9 players for BGW29.

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 24 days ago

              I'm considering not wildcarding before and just building a team for the BB26. Already have triple City and Spurs so it doesn't sound as necessary, can then WC afterwards and keep my cash on the field - useful in such a premium focused environment.

              A team doubling in 26 and playing in 29 would be brilliant though.

              1. Baps hunter
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 24 days ago

                Every man and his dog has triple MCI next week, (if not yet) and since Spurs have their fixture change coming, Kane and Son will be transferred even more in soon.

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  Might want to take at the ownership percentages of City assets if you believe that.

                2 months, 24 days ago

                I've considered that too, but having an entire perfect squad to BB in 26 is very tempting. Without a wildcard you'd have some less than ideal bench players. As DGW26 is going to be so big, I really feel I need to attack it and so WC is the best opportunity. I can traverse the dangerous waters of BGW29 when they come, especially given there may only even be 4 fixtures. Not much room to lose ground.

                  May I suggest TC26 on Grealish, then BB37 on the top teams + West Ham?

            Fixtures turning decent

              Leicester probably not. Only like Vardy and he's expensive.

              Maybe Chilwell/Digne but then Shaw is available for 4.8m. Not sure they are worth the extra cash.

              DCL could be an option if I decide to sell Antonio/Bamford.

                Makes sense
                Fancy Reece James if he starts the next 2 and shows signs of form?

                  Yes definitely would have liked to have him if I knew he was nailed.

                I've had Reece and Keane in different plans, but there's more upside elsewhere so they've found themselves out of my plan

                All my plans are flexible, so maybe

              Lets see what sort of sides are put out when CL rolls around near GW26...particular City...

              This to me is a reason the Kane/Son sides will be in good shape with Spurs only being in Europa.

                Even as an owner, no guarantee Jose rests both continuously in the EL. He will prioritize that competition as it represents the opportunity for a trophy.

                Good chance they play in the Europa league and then have less rest before pl fixtures.

              Which one of these 6.0 strikers heads for the scrap heap in GW21 to accommodate Spurs assets?

              A) Antonio
              B) Bamford
              C) Watkins

                Would you consider Wilson? The next three fixtures look pretty good vs LEE, eve, and CRY.

                How many points would you be happy with for your TC?

                I’m currently on Sterling this GW but still want atleast another goal and some BPs

                  At least 15 points (45 as TC) to be satisfied with it
                  20 (60 as TC) to be super delighted

                  I think you’re being greedy. Its only your players score added to normal captaincy score, anything is a bonus.

                  The only disaster is a blank.

                  Bit of a different question....

                  What is the equation needed to work out points per million ?
                  say one player is 5 million and scores 50 points over a season and one is 10 million and scores 100 points, I can see that they are both scoring the same points per million. If one player is 6.3 m and gets 79 points and one is 9.6m and gets 105 points then I don't know how to work it out...

                  Ty to anyone who can answer

                    Points per million = points divided by price.
                    (rounded to 0.1 decimal place)

                      • 5 Years
                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      79/6.3 = 12.5 105/9.6 = 10.9 your example

                    Points per million can also be written as points/million. So you just divide the points with the price. I.e 79pts / 6.3m = 12.5ppm

                  3. Deulofail
                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 24 days ago

                    You might want to take away the baseline price for that position first to calculate the points per EXTRA million. You might also want to look at points per game for this season or over multiple seasons, or anoher stat like expected goals, for example.

                    E.g.

                    Cheapest GK is 4.0m
                    Martinez is 5.1m
                    So he is 1.1m more than the baseline.

                    How much does that 1.1m get you?

                    4.4 points per match
                    divided by 1.1
                    = 4.0 points per extra million per game

                    You might also want to take away the appearance points, and assume these as given. This'll give you points on/over appearance per extra million per game.

                    Or you might want to choose a baseline from the cheapest alternative, like one who is nailed, getting at least 2 points per game, rather than on getting 0.

                    These are all things you might want to do, with their own pros, cons and skews.

                  Not much love for Sterling here. Didn't even get a mention in the scout notes. 46 points from the last 9 games isn't bad.

                    No. But that's an expensive 5ish points per game.

                    He also looks horribly out of form. Really poor against palace (the freekick covered that up somewhat).

                    On form I'm not sure he even starts.

                    50% starting
                    99% appearance

                    Of course he is. They sold their only other striker in Haller.

                      They have a young lad that Moyes was talking up

                        • 5 Years
                        2 months, 24 days ago

                        lol they only talked him up so that they didn't seem as desperate for a striker in the transfer market and have to pay through the roof for someone average

                    • 4 Years

                    100% will start and 70% chance he plays 90. West Ham need him and they have no one else.

                    He starts but will be subbed off for sure at hour mark...

                  So much love for Stones, lots of people signing him after his haul, when Laporte is days away from taking his spot back

                      Pep does what he wants, there’s rarely any apparent logic to it

                        • 9 Years
                        2 months, 24 days ago

                        It's working for him now though. I thought their defence was poor, too reliant on keep ball, but they've been decent and at times doing some proper defending. Even without Aguero, without Dé Bruyne hitting the meteoric heights he can reach, they're getting results. I stuck in Ederson on FH18 cos I feared rotation. But considering Stones now for Zouma, looks the best option for him.

                    Anyone that would sign Laporte with his injury problems, before he has even set foot on the pitch, would be foolish.

                    In your dreams after Pep's comments 🙂 He has fought hard to get his place and it's now his to lose. Naturally if he makes two major errors leading to a goal, it's a different story. But after playing like that and brace 😉

                      Sounds to me like a bitter non-owner.

                      No chance he loses his spot until he makes mistakes. Doesnt mean he will start every single game but as long as he keep playing the way he has been, he will remain the 2nd choice CB behind Dias, and ahead of Laporte.

                      Kane got more than double Werners points!
                      Is Werner really so bad?
                      My opinion is he's way better than Abraham and Giroud and Lampards not getting the most out of him.
                      Any opinions?

                        I think he is finding the premier league to have tougher defenders than what he came up against in Germany.

                        He had an open goal chance at the end of the last game and he executed it really badly. Showing that he was really low on confidence. It is not automatic, having spent so much money on him, that he will succeed at Chelsea. He may leave if he doesnt start scoring regularly. It has happened many other strikers in the past at different clubs.

                        Not a good FPL pick right now. I like that he doesn't hide in games, keeps trying when other players throw their dollies out of the pram after missing loads of chances. His hard work will pay off, if he's let. For now though Giroud and Lampard, more used to English football, are better strikers.

                          At that age, not sure Lamps will hold up but I suppose even he's better than Timo currently.

                        Werner certainly looks bad. No composure in front of goal, no physical presence. Gets in behind due to his pace and then finishes horribly.

                        With Pulisic on the left, and Ziyech on the right, I struggle to see how Werner gets in the side.

                        He's going to haul tonight, IF HE STARTS.

                          Thanks everyone. Werners obviously lost his confidence now but I blame Lampard for not helping him to get going. He needs to be the focal point of the attacks full stop(messing around with his position and not playing to his strengths has f****d him up.

                          I so agree with you. He needs to play more central. He was clinical in his finishing last year. No point having him stuck out in the wing.

                          I would bench Adams from this list, he seems to provide little returns. I also owned him for a long period, but he could never really convince me.

                          I know it is a popular opinion to always play forwards, but if Ings doesn't play, it always seems more difficult for SOU to score goals.

                          All your other players have a decent chance for returns I think, so you will have to be a bit lucky too. Maybe A or B?

                          Have the money to do Barnes to Son but not sure its Kane or Son I want going forward. Feels like two frees a week after would be better?

                              Thanks. Yeah I'm going off selling Barnes. Feels like Bamford to Kane somehow in the future.

                            Yes. Antonio is injury risk and Bamford also needs monitoring. And something else may always happen.

                              to haul he's going to need to learn how to kick a football properly. he better get on with it.

                            Really need Johnstone to play today and get a 0-0 in the game. Dreamland as a Coufal/Johnstone owner. If I'm being greedy I'd take an Antonio saved penalty, but trying to be realistic.

                            Stones owners: Enjoy the ride while it lasts as it looks like Laporte is on his way back to give him some competition. I mean Dias looks pretty secure right now. On current form, will take some doing to dislodge Stones though!

                              Similar to Cancelo on Sunday all of them will get a rest here and there I reckon. Will take something incredible to long term dislodge either of the centre backs on current form as you suggest

                              if stones loses his place, i'll transfer him out. and enjoy the points in the meantime.

                              This season is so much tougher than the previous one. So many ways forward and so many different viable options! Freaking headache...

                                    Harvey Barnes looks like a better pick than Maddison

                                      Salah + Bamford > Maddison + Kane it is
