Can we trust Everton’s FPL assets as appealing run of fixtures continues?

Fantasy Premier League managers can be forgiven for having trust issues right now.

Not only are many of the premium options struggling to deliver, Everton let their backers down in Gameweek 21 with a surprise 2-0 defeat to Newcastle.

However, Carlo Ancelotti’s men still have appealing fixtures on the horizon, including Gameweek 22 and 24 meetings with Leeds (away) and Fulham (home).

We asked the Scout Network if they still trust Everton assets and whether or not they will be investing in the near future.

Ted Talks FPL

Ted Talks FPL Graphic for Lucas Digne

After tripling up on Everton in Gameweek 21 against a supposedly suspect Newcastle side, I was left disappointed with the blank from all three players.

I like to think of transferring in players as like getting on a bus. You can choose to get on a bus that’s already running but accept the fact that you’re not going to get the first seat OR get on a stationary one at the bus station with no driver, hoping that it’s about to go somewhere. The latter is a perfect analogy for tripling up on Everton players. At least I’ve got a comfortable seat! 

The Toffees’ attacking statistics in the last four matches don’t make for positive reading as they sit third-worst for total shots and rock-bottom for big chances.

Before bringing these guys in, my main caveat for the poor attacking numbers was the missing personnel that combined so well in the early stages of the season. But Everton had most of their best players back against Newcastle and yet were still sluggish in the transition from defence to attack.

They showed signs of brilliance but the overwhelming thought was they struggled to create clear cut opportunities to score. I am hoping it’s just a matter of time before the key players start gelling again.

Everton will need to get their mojo back fast ahead of the midweek clash with Leeds, who have been obliging defensively. Marcelo Bielsa’s side have conceded 51 big chances over the course of the season – only West Brom have conceded more.

It is worth noting that Leeds won this fixture 1-0 at Goodison Park so it might not be all plain sailing for Everton. However, on paper, this is an ideal fixture for Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, James Rodriguez and Lucas Digne to kick-start their form but I said the same thing before Newcastle.

With Fulham at home in Gameweek 24 too, there are plenty of reasons to persist with these players until a Wildcard safety net in Gameweek 25. I just wouldn’t rush to buy them until they’ve shown signs of improvement.

Returning Digne can help Everton's attacking assets return to form in Gameweek 20

Everton’s Luca Digne

Gameweek 21 came around quickly, with the promise of a points bonanza for Everton at home to a much maligned, out of form and under pressure Newcastle team. With Lucas Digne, James Rodríguez and Dominic Calvert-Lewin all back… surely a goal-fest beckoned.

2-0 to Newcastle was the result. Of course. This is the 20/21 season after all.

What does this mean for the Jekyll and Hyde Everton in February? 

With five games in three weeks against Leeds, Man Utd, Spurs (FA Cup), Fulham and Liverpool, this is a season-defining period for the Toffees. Those fixtures don’t exactly inspire confidence for FPL managers, but the thing is, it would be really rather nice if Calvert-Lewin could fill the rather large Harry Kane/Jamie Vardy shaped hole in our teams. 

For that to happen, Everton are going to need more from James Rodriguez (one goal, no assists since Gameweek 5) and the return of Allan is pivotal (expected back for the Manchester United game). The stability he offers to the Everton midfield is vital for their attacking output. 

There are more in form forward options out there in Michail Antonio, Alexander Lacazette and Callum Wilson. Or perhaps with clean sheets occurring with more regularity, it is time to switch your team formation to 4-5-1.

With defence in mind, Lucas Digne at £6.0m needs to be delivering points every other week to justify his price tag. We had high hopes after seeing him on the left wing against Leicester, but Carlo Ancelotti dropped him back into a more orthodox full-back role for the Newcastle game.

The Leeds match in Gameweek 22 looks like a decent prospect for points for Everton assets. Will it be the turning point for the remainder of their season?

BUREVE scout notes

Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison

Harry Kane’s injury meant there was an injury in my front-three moving forward and Everton’s fixtures led me to Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

While this didn’t pay off in Gameweek 21 there is plenty of potential for the £7.6m forward to make a return to the FPL points as we became so accustomed to in the early Gameweeks of the season.

Everton lost their way for a while in terms of goals, clean sheets and FPL points with injuries to key players. However, the return of Lucas Digne, James Rodriguez and Richarlison means that Everton are nearly back to having the personal who were so prolific with points returns in the first third of the season. Allan is the only one they’re still waiting on.

For me, Jordan Pickford’s tendency towards a mistake which costs Everton the clean sheet means that I am less willing to invest £6.0m in Digne. However with injuries to Kane and Vardy up top as well as Kevin De Bruyne in midfield, and players like Bruno Fernandes out of form it is worth a look at the Everton attacking asset, especially ahead of a game against Leeds who haven’t kept a clean sheet since Gameweek 16 when they face West Brom.

Scout Network: Investing in Everton? 2

El Statto Graphic’s from Jumpersforgoalposts.info

Like many other managers, I took the leap of faith on Dominic Calvert-Lewin in Gameweek 21, a decision influenced more by Harry Kane’s injury than my unyielding belief in the player himself.

As you can see from the graphic, all Everton players are deemed differentials apart from Calvert-Lewin and I think there is a good reason for that. They are just too inconsistent right now.

The Toffees’ upcoming games are mixed so I’m not sure I would be rushing to bring in any of their assets. Lucas Digne could be a possible option due to the attacking threat he offers, but with everyone else averaging less than 4.0 points per game I feel there is much better value else where.

    2 months, 7 days ago

    Morning all, best move here? 1FT, 4.8m itb.

    A. Johnstone >> Martinez/Pope
    B. Soucek >> Son/Barnes/Maddy
    C. Save FT.

    Johnstone
    Robbo, Cancelo, Dias
    Salah, Bruno, Gündo, Raphina
    DCL, Bamford, Antonio
    (McCarthy, Soucek, Dallas, Coufal)

    1. Boly Would
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      If B, who would you bench?
      I'm looking at doing this, to Barnes.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Yeah it does create a headache. I guess I could do the move with Raphina and bench Soucek again.

        Starting to look ahead I probably need Son for Captaincy 23 anyways so perhaps I go there

        1. Boly Would
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          It's a tough one so I'd probably leave for now and roll it unless there's any more news on Raphinha today - come back to it next week for when you want Son.

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I think I would just stick and relish the 2FT next week mate. None of those moves are essential this week

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        What about the keeper? Doing my head in with Johnstone and McCarthy haha

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Switch one out next week probably - for now just hold

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Cheers. Who should I play?

    3. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      I think having 2ft in the coming gws will be really useful

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Easy save then Pat? Who to play out of Johnstone and McCarthy if so?

        Hopefully Bam and Raph are ok as currently flagged. Cheers

    Seems many here suggest buying Grealish.. I let him go in GW19 and may buy back in GW25, but wondering if I should buy now (up next against in form West Ham) or roll the FT?

    His upcoming fixtures 22-24 (WHU, ARS, bha) are ok but not too attractive it seems

    Will be replacing Soucek or Saka if buying

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      On my watch list too. Guess I could move for him above too. Although I might need Son in for Captaincy GW23

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Son for captaincy? Have you seen Spurs play?

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Have you seen West Brom play?

          Plus there's no good captaincy options in GW23 either.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Didn't train with the team at all

  5. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Which 2 to start?:

    A) Bamford (EVE)
    B) Antonio (avl)
    C) Soucek (avl)
    D) Coufal (avl)
    E) Dallas (EVE)

    Currently playing Bamford + Antonio with bench: Soucek, Dallas, Coufal but obviously wary about damage limitation of hauls on the bench!
    I'm rolling FT so will have to live with the strong bench/ benching headache for now.

    Thanks

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      KWP > Targett or a Man U def?

      1. Nespinha

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Raph or Watkins if you do a move

    2. linkafu

      KWP to Rudiger

    Bottomed:

    Any obvious moves here? Got 1FT and 9.9m in the bank after moving KDB>Gundo and Kane > DCL...

    Keep hold of the cash ready for one of Kane/KDB coming back, or any moves here?

    Martinez
    Dias - Stones - Holding
    Salah - Bruno - Gundo - Soucek
    Antonio - Bamford - DCL

    Bench: Meslier - Dier - Coufal - Smith Rowe

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I know Soucek has done really well, but Soucek > Grealish looks like a prime move there (or ESR > Grealish and bench Soucek)

  8. goblin140
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    2 FTs, 0.4 ITB. Was thinking Dallas > Justin or Soucek > Saka the only options here, but idk, should I just burn 1?

    Martinez
    Dias Cancelo Dallas
    Salah Bruno Sterling Grealish
    Bamford Wilson Antonio

    4.0 Soucek Coufal Mitchell

  9. linkafu
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Play 2

    A Bamford
    B Justin
    C Antonio

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      AC

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      A & C as they will usually have a higher ceiling (unless Justin scores which is a rarity)

  10. thegaffer82
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Scared to make a transfer now.
    Soucek out in GW20 (-4) and he gets a brace.
    Bamford out (-4) in GW21 and he gets a goal and 2 assists.
    With that 30-odd points I'd have been near to the top 100k.

    Planning Rashford out this week as he's been super frustrating to own, playing on the right and barely even getting chances.

    But, I just can't help but feel this is another one of those situations where he's been rubbish and his numbers are poor, but at any moment he could pull oyt a performance like in the Pool FA Cup game.

    God knows, I'm racked with doubt now!

    1. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Damn I have to get Rashy then!

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Depends on if I sell him though.

      If I don't, he'll continue to be crap.

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years

      Sold weeks ago.

      I'd prefer a whole host of DFers over Dier to be honest

    2. fplking14

      Going for Dallas with a hit

    3. linkafu

    Until Digne is running into the space around the corner flag and drilling balls along the floor along the goal line I don't think DCL is going to start returning consistently again.

    I've owned DCL for a while (I didn't sell it when injured) and just brought in Digne last week, but watching that Newcastle game and comparing the almost template situations earlier in the season of James getting the ball on the right midfield, he does a diagonal to Digne who is in the forward left side of the oppositions half (when viewed from the Everton goal), and then he smashes cross after cross either in the air or just along the floor across the face of the goal and DCL goal hangs waiting for a tap in. It just wasn't happening. If the goals are going to flow like they did then they need to get back to exactly how they played before.

      If that's what you think, it isn't going to happen that way. You should do all the analysis and stats, and once you've made a decision based on that, ignore it and go with the opposite. This is the best outcome for fpl this season

    2. Pukki Party

      They need Allan back

    RMT:

    Martinez (Button)
    Dias Stones (Coufal) Dallas (Douglas)
    Salah Grealish Bruno Son Gundogan
    Ings Antonio (Davis)

    1. No Professionals

      same as every other team apart from ings.

  14. Pépé Pig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Which is the best option:

    A) Soucek -> Grealish

    B) Play Soucek and save transfer

    1. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      wondering the same, think I will go for grealish

    2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      It is a transfer waiting to happen, not sure Grealish is a priority for this GW over having 2FTs next GW

  15. Sabina_S
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Fabio Silva (bench fodder) or Rodrigo (injured) to Wilson or Watkins?

    I have have Bamford and DCL.

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      How long is Rodrigo out for? If he's not bad I'd dump Filva. Villa look the real deal; Toon had one good game.

  16. michaelington

    Will Kane keep dropping or is he protected?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 7 days ago

      keep dropping

    2. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      not protected. i believe price protection only happens for a period once the flag is removed.

      1. Jellyfish
        • 9 Years

        this - and looking like he may drop again tonight (currently on -91)

      Massive benching dilemmas this week. Almost hoping a couple of my assets are rotated so I don't have to make a decision.

      Why is Arsenal "taking care of some paperwork" re Aubameyang?

        I assumed he left the country as his mother was ill, but I don't know too much about it.

          Found this: The most notable absentee was captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is in quarantine after returning to the country following a family incident.

          Ah ok. For a moment there I thought it was market related... today being last day and all...

        Rupert will tell you

          'Fake news' Rupert you mean?

          1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            That's one nickname you could use.

        Visited his mom who's sick atm, i think. Maybe quarantene issue?

      4. aleksaa2

        Some government protocols because he left the country, no one knows exactly why

    • mlm
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Bench who?

      Gundogan
      DLC
      Bamford
      Wilson

      1. Dele
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Wilson

      2. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        It'd be an easy choice were it not for Wilson's brace this weekend.

        I'd probably still go for Wilson though

      3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Wilson

      4. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Prob Wilson. Hopefully his haul was more due to a poor Everton than an improving Newcastle

        1. mlm
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          But i think it is a tactical improvement of Newcastle

      Any injury update on Saka? Thanks.

      Thoughts on Digne > TAA as a long term move?

      1. Pépé Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Probs not with those fixtures. Last match could have just been a blip for Everton

        1. Dele
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          I don’t see the fixtures as that great? United and Pool in the next 4.

          1. Pépé Pig
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            I mean TAA's fixtures aren't

      2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Not for me

    • Aster

        Anything on Saka?

        1. Pépé Pig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Arteta saying unlikely atm

          1. Aster
              2 months, 7 days ago

              Where?

                2 months, 7 days ago

                Arteta on Saka & Tierney's availability for tomorrow: "We don't know yet [if they'll return]. Today we've got a training session & they haven't been able to train with us yet, so I think it will be really difficult for them"

            Which one would you do ?

            1) Soucek to Grealish, get Antonio for free for GW23

            2) Keep Soucek, do Stephens to Grealish, means if I want Antonio for GW23, I have to take a hit (Already have 3 WH Souce, Coufal, Martin)

            DCL is this season's Pukki - a first half of the season player.

            1. aleksaa2
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              Too early to say, I think Eve and him will turn it around

            2. Pukki Party
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              I disagree. Norwich playing bad as a team with no confidence was the reason Pukki didn't do well at the end of the season. I believe Everton will start klicking when they get everyone fit and a few games.

            3. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              Bamford was supposed to be this years Pukki. That's why I sold him 🙁

              • 6 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              What if there wasn't a Pukki last season?

          4. Sarri-ball
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            3 weeks to wildcard going 2 attack/punt try climb rankings. This midweek only

            A) Cavani
            B) Firminho (own salah)
            C) pogba (own bruno)
            D) grealish (own watkins)

            1. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              D) by a distance.

              The others all have something that puts me off (rotation/form etc...)

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Anguissa & Werner > Salah & Watkins worth a -8?

          6. Disturbed
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Best option for this team? 1ft, 2.9m itb

            A. Brewster > Antonio
            B. Saka > Barnes
            C. Saka > Grealish

            Martinez
            Robbo digne stones
            Salah Sterling Bruno gundo saka
            Dcl bamford

            Forster coufal Dallas brewster

            Thoughts on esr? Do we think he still gets minutes with the new signing

            Can either lose him or souceck to salah

            Leaning towards souceck because I need the 3rd wh slot of tonio over their good run but still want a 5th mid who will play

            1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              I would lose ESR. Too much uncertainty with Arsenal new signing competing with ESR.

            2. Boris Bodega
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              I think it's his place to lose, but it wouldn't surprise me at all even if they just managed his minutes. I would prefer Saka who is one of the mast nailed it seems these days.

            3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              Harsh if he is dropped, but could happen

            4. aleksaa2
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              Hard to say how much he will play, for sure his minutes will be managed. He is also carrying a muscle discomfort injury for two weeks, so could be rested very soon. But they will also play together in some games depending on the low-block opponents.

              If you want certainty, sell ESR, if you are ok with him being benched sometimes, sell Soucek.

            Bamford scoring his goal against Leicester is probably my favourite moment of the fpl season so far. I was having a nightmare start to the gameweek and I really needed him to deliver when I didn't really expect him to. I don't think i'll be selling him this season for what he did on the weekend

            1. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              Conversely was probably one of the low points of my season after I sold him for a hit

              1. Jon Walter's Hatty
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 7 days ago

                Anyone who expected 28 points from Bamford and Wilson away against decent defences well good luck to them.

          9. Bennyboy1907
              2 months, 7 days ago

              Save transfer?

              Martinez
              Cancelo Stones Chillwell
              Salah(c) Bruno Gundogan Grealish
              Antonio DCL Bamford

              Johnstone Son Dallas Coufal

              0.7ITBB

              And who to bench from my front 8?

                Play Dallas over Chilwell and Son over Antonio
