Should we reconsider Everton’s FPL attackers for Gameweek 20 and beyond?

With no match in Double Gameweek 19, have Everton gone under the Fantasy Premier League radar ahead of Gameweek 20?

That’s what we are pondering in this latest article as the Toffees face a period of appealing fixtures.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men had fans on the edge of their seats at the start of the season and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) became a near-essential pick after delivering returns in eight of his first nine games.

Lucas Digne (£6.0m) was thriving as a maurauding left-back, providing five assists in 10 matches and summer signing James Rodríguez (£7.7m) hit the ground running in the Premier League.

However, as we look towards Gameweek 20, it is a very different story for Everton’s attacking assets.

With no goals in five games and a hamstring injury threatening to keep him out for the next few, Calvert-Lewin has been sold by nearly a million players

Digne and Rodríguez, once well-owned assets, are now in just around 13% of squads combined.

With FPL players selling Everton players en masse, we take a look at their underlying numbers to see if any of them are worth keeping for their appealing schedule.

    How did Fernandes get an assist for Cavani’s goal when Chillwell did not get an assist for Mount’s goal against Fulham???

    1. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      It’s very simple

      If you play for Manu you have privileges

      1. Pad Randa (The OG)
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Also, he didn't. He got an assist for Pogba's goal.

        1. Black Knights
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Also, it was for Cavani's, not Pogba's.

          1. Pad Randa (The OG)
            • 9 Years

            :-O That's me told.

    2. Black Knights

      Areola punched the Chilwell one into a different direction. He just kinda fumbled this one to practically the same place.

      Would be the only difference i can assume they based the decision on.

      Comes down to intended target.

      Fernandes picked his head up and swung in a ball towards Cavani (only option in that area). The touch doesn't stop the ball reaching Cavani, so they award an assist.

      For Chilwell, he's firing it into the 6 yard box whilst Mount waits on the edge - he wasn't the intended target, so no assist.

      The issue is the rule is both a little bit subjective and a little bit misunderstood, creates lots of problems like this

      1. Mooster
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Fernandes’ pass would not have reached Cavani if it wasn’t for Areola.

          Regardless, FPL would count Cavani as the intended target, he wasn't just powering with his head down and then swinging it in aimlessly. Areola's touch doesn't change the "intended destination", even if Cavani wasn't dead certain of reaching it

            Cancelo had the exact same pass to Torres before the 2-0 goal against Newcastle.

            1. Wild Rover
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              That should also have been an assist

    4. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      To punish Fernandes non owners and Chillwell owners

    5. Mooster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Cancelo had the exact same pass as Fernandes in the game against Newcastle, the second goal. A rebound cross that was intended to Torres. Torres scored.
      Cancelo was not given an assist. Why?

    GK Areola
    DEF Reece James, Diaz, Stones
    MID Smith Rowe, Salah, KDB, Bruno, Soueck
    FWD Vardy, Antonio.

    Subs Brewster, Mitchell, Dawson

    -4 worth it for KDB to Gundogen, Brewster to Kane and Reese James to Maguire or Shaw?

    Cheers

    With KDB now out for a few games, who does that make more nailed?

    A) Jesus

    B) Foden

    1. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years

      Probably B but neither guaranteed to start any given game.

      Is he defo out?

    4. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      There's no confirmation he is out for 1 never mind a couple of games, probably best not saying stuff like that here as people run riot with it!

  5. Pad Randa (The OG)

    Shortening my previous post.

    Martinez
    Dias - Stones - Dallas
    Bruno - Grealish - Raphinha - Soucek
    Wilson - Bamford - Kane

    Mendy, KdB, Robbo, Coufal

    1. KdB > Gundo
    2. KdB > Sterling
    3. KdB + Grealish > Salah + Gundo (-4)

    Also, if I do 1, 2 or 3, bench:

    a. Soucek
    b. Raphinha

    Excluding free hit weeks do many people have players from GW1 who have been in the team for every GW.

    McCarthy, Justin, Salah for me

    1. Pad Randa (The OG)
      • 9 Years

      Mitchell until this GW for me.

    2. faux_C

    Soucek to Gundo for free?

      If KDB confirmed out, there's an even stronger case for it

    Grealish absolutely destroyed City yesterday

    Took out Walker and then KDB

      No, KDB managed to get the injury himself.

      KDB > Sterling?

      1. Captain_Shirokov

        I think a lot of people are ignoring this move. And maybe rightly so, but it has a lot of potential.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Sterling in his current form is overpriced by about 2 million.

        You are paying for the price of a player who was effectively a striker, or at the very least an inside forward.

        He is now playing much wider and also cannot finish most of the time.

      Should I be upset I already did Soucek to Gundo instead of getting KDB out straight away?

      1. mcsteely
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Don't be upset but worth waiting for news with long breaks between gameweek deadlines

        1. GloryManUnited
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Would have potentially been priced out so I went ahead with it. I still have a nice starting XI with KDB on the bench for a week.

          1. mcsteely
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Fair enough then, hopefully KDB is only out for one week and Gundo could be on pens for you anyway

            1. GloryManUnited
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              That would be best case scenario for sure. Lol

    • BeWater
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Pep should just move Cancelo into midfield and give him pens until Kev is back.

        KDB > Foden
        Adams > Kane
        Would be for a hit though

        1. GloryManUnited
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Gundo instead of Foden for me, but I like it.

        2. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Undecided with Foden and Gundo. Kane move is good but probably a bit early to bring him in when looking at the fixtures

          1. mcsteely
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            True. Is he fixture proof? I feel he can punish sellers and non-owners every week

            1. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Well he punished me when I took him out for a hit to bring Vardy in! Keeping Vardy for the fixtures then swapping to Kane in GW23

              1. mcsteely
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Ouch. Stories like that make me think Kane is a season keeper set and forget unless he gets injured

                1. GloryManUnited
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years

        • 2 Years

        With KDB probably/potentially out for 2-3 weeks, is Gundo a better or worse option when KDB is not in the 11?

        1. elwardio

        With Gundogan performing how he is and (maybe) 1st on penalties... It feels like a trap... but it's too hard to ignore.

        Question is whether KDB being out pushes him deeper or not. Surely Silva gets to play in Kev's position?

        Both good options but who is better? I could feasibly bench KDB but no point if out for a few weeks & they have WBA next...

          I don't think it's worth to keep Kdb.Rashford or Son are the safe picks.I imagine BSilva will play in Kdb's position right?Gundogan might be a good pick but it feels a bit like we missed the train.

        3. Would Ed Woodward
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Their deepest player will probably be 35 yards from the opposition goal for the next 3 fixtures anyway.

      • Labile
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Thinking Sterling as KDB replacement I get he’s been crap recently but these next 3 are prime Sterling fixtures and they’ll need him to step up and he’ll probably do exactly that vs West Brom Sheffield and Burnley.

          I actually think out for 2-3 weeks, ilkay rest, price changes. This is one that I might just pull the trigger on because it is so straightforward. Only doubt would be a cancelled fixture I suppose

          Is getting Pogba in a problem waiting to happen?

            Not sure considering him as KDB replacement. Good fixtures. Pogba might have good motivation now when United are in title race.

              Same thoughts here. Fixtures might persuade me to have a punt in the short term as I'm wildcarding in 25 anyway
