Pro Pundit Teams

Three-time top 200 finisher Lateriser on Shaw, a strong bench and transfer strategy

The reigning FPL champion of India, Lateriser, tackles an assortment of issues in his latest Pro Pundits column.


In this season of absolute fails for me, there is finally some reason to cheer. In the last two Gameweeks, I’ve gone against the grain with my captaincy calls – and both picks came through.

I captained Harvey Barnes (£6.9m) in Gameweek 21 and Bruno Fernandes (£11.4m) in Gameweek 22 and I’m finally close to breaking into the top one million for the first time this season, as my fight for respectability continues. I’m eight points away from that landmark rank, so I’m hoping to pass it sooner rather than later.

Some time ago I realised that if I was to have a respectable finish this season (so difficult from where I am sitting because the template is so strong at the moment), I will have to take some calculated gambles. Captaining Bruno ahead of the popular Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) was one of those decisions.

This wasn’t a shot in the dark as I weighed up Southampton’s injury problems, their worsening underlying defensive numbers and Brighton’s form. While we know that Salah sees a higher percentage of returns without his Sengalese compatriot, I personally thought Liverpool would find it difficult against a tough Brighton outfit without him. I was assisted by an early red card for Southampton and some dodgy decisionmaking but given the season I’ve had, I’ll take this small win with both hands.

That’s enough about me. This is going to be one of those freestyle articles where I talk about all things I find relevant to FPL.

LUKE SHAW

First up, let’s discuss Luke Shaw (£4.9m). I talked him up in this article I wrote in early January and he is currently emerging as one of the best-value picks in the game.

Manchester United are in the best five teams in the league for big chances and shots in the box conceded in the last four matches and have a decent run of fixtures on the horizon, with a potential Double Gameweek 26.

With Shaw, you are not just dependant on clean sheet points. He’s become incredibly vital to the Red Devils and is a ball progressor and an attacking outlet on that left-hand side. In the last six Gameweeks, Shaw has created 19 chances, which is top amongst all defenders. Shaw is also top for big chances created (five) in the same period and is on some set pieces and corners.

For those in the market for a defender, Shaw is a very good cut-price pick and definitely offers value. Personally, I wouldn’t worry too much about rotation when it comes to him. He’s very much first choice and will only miss the odd game, which you can afford at this price point.

There is a lot of talk about people being impatient with Salah and looking at selling him, which seems like a little bit of an overreaction to me right now. He has decent fixtures coming up, including a likely Double Gameweek 26, and has very strong underlying numbers as well. In the last two matches, he is top of the league amongst all attackers for shots, second for shots in the box and third for xG non penalty. All his underlying numbers are moving in the right direction and I would urge more patience.

Macro Strategy

Kane and Son both return in new formation as Spurs breeze past Sheffield United 3

Let’s talk a little bit about macro strategy now. A lot of Fantasy Premier League managers have a lot of cash flying around with the plethora of budget midfielders and forwards in play. That said, having that cash handy is very easy only because it gives you a lot of flexibility to jump very quickly without any surgery to the premium attackers that emerge.

Tottenham Hotspur potentially have a very strong-looking Double Gameweek 26 and the return for Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) isn’t too far off. Be patient with that cash as the timing could be crucial.

For those looking to Wildcard in Gameweek 25, there is a good opportunity to punt on Manchester United, West Ham and Chelsea assets in the next few Gameweeks. With there being a Double Gameweek 24 as well for Everton (and three others), there is the freedom to gamble on an extra Toffees player or two in the knowledge that they can be got rid of in the Wildcard in Gameweek 25.

I’m personally hoping for Brighton to beat Leicester in the FA Cup, which makes the in-form Seagulls a very attractive target for a Gameweek 26 Bench Boost, with cheap defenders available.

It looks as of now that Aston Villa, Manchester City, Spurs and Liverpool are the teams to target for the big Double Gameweek 26 but anything can happen in the FA Cup and we will have a clearer picture after the fifth round in the coming midweek.

In case you don’t plan to Wildcard in Gameweek 25 (which is very much possible as it might be do-able to field a good team without it), you can wildcard after the big Double Gameweek and have a relatively thinner bench. That said, we’ve seen the bench be very useful this season and with the Champions League and Europa League coming back very soon, having one or two good substitute players might be very useful in the latter stages of the season.

If you’ve already used your Wildcard, it might be worth saving a transfer this week so that you’re able to make your moves next week with a lot more information, as the FA Cup ties will have been played.

BENCHED POINTS

Tomas Souchek punishes doubters as West Ham move into top four 3

A lot of people have been moaning about a lot of benched points lately. Let me just give you the flip side. When the City defenders and Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) were rested against Sheffield United, most had good options coming off the bench while I had non-playing bench fodder. Trust me, I’d rather be in your position than mine and take a few points hauls on my bench. You aren’t going to get all your benching decisions right but it is a good problem to have and one that will be very useful when the random benchings occur, which they will as the season continues to remain congested and European football returns. The frustration you face is only psychological. Take it on the chin, trust the process and move on.

Those on double or triple Manchester City defence shouldn’t be too worried given their upcoming run. They are still the best defence in the league by a distance and I still expect them to keep more than a fair share of clean sheets in the upcoming Gameweeks. Since I’m on a triple Manchester City defence, I’m looking to shift one defender and get an attacker instead to balance things out. But I see no problem in holding City defenders as they are by far the best defensive options in the game at the moment and I don’t expect that to change.

That’s it for me this week with the quick turnaround and when it comes to captaincy, I will be making my decision after watching Son Heung-min (£9.7m) play tonight against Chelsea.

          Would you start a Burnley DEF over Stones (playing Cancelo) or DCL this week? Or bench?

            I prefer Antonio captain over Bruno and Son tbh. Just seems guaranteed returns.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years

              Bamford?

              1. Fudgy

                • 1 Year
                3 months, 3 hours ago

                Possibly yeah, just doesn't seem as explosive as Antonio and Leeds have been unreliable at times

                1. Here's Tom with the We…
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 3 hours ago

                  Not as explosive?? Don’t agree having benched his 15 pointer lol

            2. BeWater
                3 months, 3 hours ago

                I have all 3 and they are the only ones in the captaincy conversation for my team.

                  Difficult decision. Son likely ends in tears

                  1. BeWater
                      3 months, 3 hours ago

                      I'm still compelled to do it though.

                      1. Make United Great Again
                        • 8 Years
                        3 months, 3 hours ago

                        Shades of Salah before the West Ham game. Blanked 6 weeks in a row then bang

                  2. Make United Great Again
                    • 8 Years
                    3 months, 3 hours ago

                    Absolutely. I’m currently on Bruno. Got a good feeling.

                    Antonio (vc)

                2. Tonyawesome69 FH36
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 3 hours ago

                  Currently on Antonio(C) and Bruno(VC) - Bruno stats haven't been great with exception to the Soton game

                  1. Fudgy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year
                    3 months, 3 hours ago

                    I agree

                    1. Tonyawesome69 FH36
                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 3 hours ago

                      Bruno was very lucky to haul in the Soton game as well! Gifted pen after Martial dive

                3. marcos11
                    3 months, 3 hours ago

                    Stuck between Bruno and Antonio to be honest

                4. Make Arrows Green Again
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 3 hours ago

                  73 points in a non DGW and (admittedly small) red arrows everywhere. Tough gig.

                  I imagine that's the danger of only having one United player and not captaining him. If the team goes big, you go home.

                5. Slitherene
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 3 hours ago

                  Martinez ¦ Forster
                  Cancelo Maguire Coufal
                  Bruno Rashford Grealish Barnes
                  Jesus Ings Wilson
                  ¦ Saka Holding Lascelles*

                  Lascelles -> Mee, but I'm not sure who I'll bench then.

                  Cancelo or Jesus?

                    Just done Salah to Raphinha, possibly the strangest transfer in my 10+ years playing this game.

                      I'm might end up with Salah and Kane on my bench this week. What is going on this season?

                    • 10 Years
                    3 months, 3 hours ago

                    Building a stronger squad has left me with a set of benching headaches. Also, unsure whether to ditch TAA given Liverpool's form (regrettably benching Justin in the previous round) and bring in Rudiger perhaps? Or ditch Bednarek? 1 FT, 2.4 ITB.

                    Martinez / Button
                    Cancelo / Stones / TAA / Justin / Bednarek
                    Salah / Bruno / Grealish / Saka / Gundogan
                    Bamford / Antonio / DCL

                    1) leaning towards backline of Cancelo / Stones / Justin unless I bring in Rudiger
                    2) leaning towards benching DCL

                    Let me know if any of this sounds like madness.

                    1. The Units
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 11 Years
                      3 months, 3 hours ago

                      TAA and Bednarek out. TAA first I reckon.

                    2. Make United Great Again
                      • 8 Years
                      3 months, 3 hours ago

                      Sound good to me. Bring in Rudiger for TAA.

                      Agree with benching DCL too.

                    • 9 Years

                      I don't think those moves are a priority this GW. I would roll

                        Thanks. If not getting Rudiger, would you play Dawson Stones or Digne?

                          Probably Dawson. Even though you will have WHU def double-up, I like his headed goal potential from set pieces Dawson. He has scored a few already

                            Tell me about it. Sick of seeing his points on the bench.

                            Thanks

                      I’d play Martinez, then gtg

                          second thought, actually a close one but still Martinez.

                        Son I think.

                        3 months, 3 hours ago

                        Antonio (don't have Son)

                        Son or Antonio. Stupid thing is, if they swapped prices, I bet more people would be on Antonio than Son.

                        Depends whether Kane comes back. The only other major factor for me was Spurs' limp performance last night. They surely have to come out and give it a go?

                        1. Tonyawesome69 FH36
                          • 2 Years
                          3 months, 3 hours ago

                          If you have Son, you got to cap him with that WBA fixture. The Kane factor is what is stopping me from bringing in Son

                          1. Make Arrows Green Again
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            3 months, 3 hours ago

                            I think Son needs Kane to occupy the defence, create more room for him, hold up the ball, all sorts of things. There's noone out there on Son's level otherwise.

                        2. Make United Great Again
                          • 8 Years
                          3 months, 3 hours ago

                          And it is against West Brom. Key factor

                        3. Gabbiadini
                          • 3 Years
                          3 months, 3 hours ago

                          yes but I think we also probably have an increased view of West Ham at the moment and a decreased view of Spurs.
                          At Spurs' expectation Son should haul.

                          1. Make Arrows Green Again
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                            • 4 Years
                            3 months, 3 hours ago

                            Agreed, Spurs in November form would blow West Brom away. But there is something wrong with that team. It has the hallmarks of a team no playing for the manager. West Ham are playing like Spurs should, and Spurs are playing like Sheffield United should. It's a great fixture, but I'm unconvinced.

                          Don’t own either yikes.

                          Maybe Bruno, maybe Grealish

                          If LR is around, I would like to know what rank is he targeting for the end of the season. I am in a similar position just inside the million mark though.

                            Step by step. Once i get inside 1mil, target 500k. Small steps.

                          I'm undecided here. Would you do Johnstone to Pope, Holding to Mee or bring in both?

                          3 months, 3 hours ago

                          Is this a good BB team in GW 24?

                          I am -4 far from it and just get done with it and use the WC to make a great structure.

                          I have all the chips left.

                          The potential BB team is:

                          Pope Martínez

                          Digne Dallas Stones Cancelo Maguire

                          Salah Sterling Fernandes Lookman Soucek

                          Bamford Calvert-Lewin Antonio

                          1. Daniel - Maquire or Hendo?
                            • 11 Years
                            3 months, 3 hours ago

                            Pope Digne, Stones, Cancelo, Lookman DCL are the double GWs players

                            1. Finding Timo
                                3 months, 3 hours ago

                                Agree on all of them except digne as wont Everton concede and unlikely to score v city ?

                                1. Daniel - Maquire or Hendo?
                                  • 11 Years
                                  3 months, 3 hours ago

                                  but he can get a CS and assist against Fulham

                              Wait for 26

                              1. Daniel - Maquire or Hendo?

                                3 months, 3 hours ago

                                But that means I will need to BB the Leeds crew. Dallas, Raphinha and Bamford. That ain't better either. We will have all those lads for GW 25 anyway.

                                Plan is BB in GW 24, get all the Leeds players in GW 25 and get a WC for GW 26 and 11 double GWs players and some punts

                              My team exactly with Coufal+Grealish instead of Maguire+Lookman.

                              Im also thinking BB24 looks promising and most likely will go for it! Depends what we think abt Leeds guys against Arsenal

                                Coufal.

                                  yep, if you're playing Fab have the faith that Coufal also gets a CS.

                                  How about Holding? Villa looked crap vs West Ham.

                                    Could blame a lot on keeper error.

                                      I think the op is referring to benching decisions

                              Bit of a team selection issue here as too many good options, who to pick? My current team is:

                              De Gea
                              Cresswell, AWB, Justin
                              Gundogan, Salah, Bruno, Son, Maddison
                              Antonio, Wilson

                              (Martinez, DCL, Dias, Cancelo)

                              Am i crazy having that bench? Just can't see Man C keeping a clean sheet against Pool.

                                  I’d start cancelo. He’s dangerous. Most of the time he’s on the edge of the box whipping crosses in

                                Assuming I would like to bring Pope having Martinez/Martin now - is it worth having Pope and Martinez or just Martinez to Pope ?

                                Any news on AV DGW ?

                                Have all chips and wildcard left.

                                Was about to plan when to use them but all I can see is GW25 TC on Bamford...

                                Anybody else?

                                    No. TC is being saved for when Kane has a double.

                                  Logical playing bench boost this weekend? DGW announcements have changed this quite a bit.

                                  Having 2x Leeds and 2x Saints makes it questionable to WC25 and miss out on their doubles to prep for 26, in which case I would then likely have single fixture players On my bench for DGW26 anyway..nice fixtures on my bench this weekend too...

                                  Statistically Antonio is the best captain option this week. I've just crunched the numbers.
