The best Leeds players to consider for FPL Double Gameweek 25

Leeds come under the spotlight as we begin our look at the clubs with two fixtures in Double Gameweek 25.

The Elland Road outfit are coming off the back of a mixed run of results to face Wolves and Southampton in the coming Gameweek.

With a number of well-owned assets who are still receiving a lot of attention, Fantasy Premier League managers are backing Leeds players to deliver.

But are their high owned assets worth having? And are there Leeds players still flying under the radar? We assess their credentials in this Premium Members article below.

THE FORM

Bamford and Raphinha star in audition for Double Gameweek 25 2

Coming up from the Championship, Leeds have been a revelation this season, with their gung-ho style earning plaudits far and wide.

Their 40 goals this season can only be bettered by teams in the top six.

Unfortunately, this has come at the expense of having a solid defence, with Leeds also shipping 42 goals. Only West Brom have conceded more.

Their up-and-down season can be summed up perfectly from results in their last six Gameweeks.

A fantastic away win at Leicester along with confident wins over Crystal Palace and Newcastle are sandwiched between losses to Brighton, Everton and a battering by Arsenal.

Their 4-2 defeat at Arsenal also showed just how vulnerable they can be at the back without club captain Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m), who missed out through injury.

So, going forward, Leeds are one of the best attacking outfits in the league, just don’t expect them to keep many clean sheets.

    Play my wildcard or save and take a -16 hit?

    1. sunzip14

      I would WC

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA

      Wc mate

    3. MikeBravo

      That's quite a big hit - WC...

    4. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      -16 hit this GW or spread across 2? I'm taking -8 across 2 gameweeks and saving my WC

      1. aaroncfc
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Across two gameweeks. Really on the fence

    5. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      WC

    6. woodles
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      WC all day. You'll almost definitely see a rank drop over 2 weeks if not

  2. klopp4kop
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    when will the DGWs get announced???

  3. sunzip14
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Have all chips intact but can't seem to decide on what to do with them. Don't see value in WCing out of this team with 11-12 good players already in the team. Maybe watch how gw25 unfolds and assess what 2FTs can do for dgw26? GTg? 1FT and 0 itb.

    Forster**
    Stones, Cancelo, Lowton
    Grealish, Salah, Son, Bruno, Gundo
    Bamford*, Ings*

    DDG, DCL, Coufal, Mitchell

    1. smix
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yeah. Better to hold onto WC when 11-12 players will be the same. I will TC in 26 instead of BB & field 11 DGW players thru transfers

  4. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Pep will rest Sterling this game I think. Arsenal and CL game more important.
    Everton without DCL should be an easy 1-0 win for City.

    1. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Pls no. I thought he got his rest recently tbh.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Really? Sterling (c) fail then 🙁

    3. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      doubt it if Gund already sitting out
      keep the momentum going

    4. RichardNixon
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      He's gotta be close to getting a rest. Has started 4 games since the 2nd of Feb. Played 90 in three of them, and 56mins against Swansea a week ago.

      I'd guess he starts on the bench and if needed will come on with 30 to go. If City is easily in front he'll stay on the bench. There's fixtures galore coming up for City.

      Having said that, who knows what Pep will do. Gave up a long time ago of trying to predict his line-ups. I hope he starts as he's my captain and Sterling has a pretty good record against Everton.

  5. Sterling Archer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    KDB gets any minutes 2night will he be in many WC's? or will he be phased back in, prioritising the champions league during the busy schedule?

  6. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    If KdB plays tonight, do you have a plan if any to get him in?

    1. Silecro
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Didn't warrant anything to get him this season. And Gundo started his scoring streak even before KDB got injured, so currently no plan to get him in.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        It's not either or. It's both. If KdB returns to 19/20 form with an extra DGW before GW29, he's a huge asset. I wasn't willing to pawn off Fernandes or Salah for Sterling but a fit and firing KdB is a whole other beast.

        1. Silecro
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          This season he has been fit but not firing. If he plays tonight and doesn't do any mega haul or something eye-catching, cant see justifying to sell either Bruno or Salah if I already have Gundo for half the money but same production.
          I see FPL as the "what-have-you-done-for-me-lately" game and not living on past glories (just like Trent). When/IF he hauls, then i'll think of plans to get him, nothing till then.

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            You know what's funny. Statistically, he's been performing BETTER than last season.

            He's been deployed further forward, he's been taking more shots, has higher xG and everything. Gundogan doesn't figure into this conversation. Gundo is far and away the best asset in the game when fit and playing in this system.

            It's similar to how Jota for a while made people think they could cover Salah. These budget assets are diamonds. They don't impact on the other guys. If KdB is fit and playing, I'd argue he's better than the other premiums considering the team he plays for, the team form and the fixtures.

    2. Daniel - When to BB?
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yeah, I will WC in GW 26 and get him in instead of Bruno

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      He’s pretty much ruined my season. Been a big premium flop that I’ve backed too often

      1. Daniel - When to BB?
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Especially if he delivers goal and assist combo or so

    4. Catastrophe
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Nope. Gundogan, Cancelo & Stones for the foreseeable for me. Hoping he doesn't start firing...

      1. Daniel - When to BB?
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Stones is a rotation risk from now on

        1. Catastrophe
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          So is Cancelo 😀

          For his $ he's worth the risk providing you've got a half decent defender on the bench. I've got no way to keep Dias over Stones in the next few weeks.

    5. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Sterling to KDB. But both will be Pep'ed starting dgw26, so probably better off with Son anyway

    6. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Nope

    7. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Sterling out KDB in ASAP

    8. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      It's very hard because he's the best premium asset in the game statistically (his level of underperformance this year has been incredible and I don't think anyone really believes KDB is that bad a finisher) - but the value in Gundogan and their defence is so insane that combinatorically I'm struggling to justify selling Bruno/Salah for him when it means I need to make such a severe downgrade in quality in defence.

    9. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yes already had a plan ready to get him back around this time when he got injured initially.

    10. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yeah.

      25: Cancelo, Antonio -> Struijk, Kane

      26/27: Salah/Bruno -> KDB

  7. Nespinha
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Pope, McCarthy
    Cancelo, Stones, Mee, Dallas, Rudiger
    Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Sterling, Raphinha
    Adams, Watkins, Bamford

    Use wildcard?

    Or

    Save and use 30/31?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA

      Which players do you want?

      Which injuries/issues do you have?

  8. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Best move? 1FT. 8.5m Itb.

    A. Antonio >> Kane / Ings
    B. Soucek >> Salah
    C. Antonio+DCL >> Kane+Ings(-4)

    McCarthy
    Dias Dallas, Cancelo, Tarko
    Son, Bruno, Gündo, Raphina
    Bamford, Antonio*
    (Pope, DCL*, Coufal, Soucek)

    1. Catastrophe
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      That must be a record for $ ITB!

      Not sure what your chip strategy is but C for me.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Got BB, WC and TC. Keeping it quite flexible at the minute.

      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        No FH so need to be careful with 29

  9. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Which is a better option for next three GWs?

    1. Brighton defender
    2. Southampton defender (assume they have 3 DGWs in a row)

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Perhaps 2 with an attacking one

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Vestegaard?

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Yep

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I didn't think saints had a DGW in 26?

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        They might, gotta wait for fixtures

  10. Daniel - When to BB?
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    I see the FFS poll is still active:

    "How many players with two DGW24 matches will you own by Saturday's deadline?"

    😀 😛 😀 😛 🙂

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I originally answered 5, but I need to change my answer to 2 (max).

      1. Daniel - When to BB?
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        it is not for GW 25 it is for the last GW

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Yeah I know. Had DCL, Mee, Gundo, Foden, Cancelo when I answered it. 3 of them are no longer DGWers.

          1. Jafooli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Have the same 5, with Stones over Cancelo

            We have be stiffed over a barrel with DCL, Mee & Gundogan

      2. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years

        I'll reset the poll so you can answer again 😉

    2. Daniel - When to BB?
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      "DGW24 CAPTAIN POLL
      Best captain for DGW24?"

      Also active.

      2 days till the deadline plus.

      Embarrassing IMO.

      1. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Yeah, no reason for it to still be the old one. The team will have a chat and we'll make sure this gets updated sooner going forward.

    2. Super Saints

      Pereira of Leicester has dropped 0.1 all season from 6m!

      1. badgerboy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        He was injured before the season began iirc so had really low ownership to begin with.

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Still, he should have dropped more from 6m! Odegaard came into the game a few days ago with no ownership And is on -98 already!

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Foden is a troll. Already owned him for 11 gameweeks this season, said I'd never go back to him. Mistake will be rectified next week.

        Sterling (c) 😛

        I genuinely think he's 50/50 to start today. The day to rest him makes sense for today.

    For those without a free hit;
    Gameweek 29 has three matches.
    The games are uninspiring
    Brighton V Newcastle
    Fulham V Leeds
    West Ham V Arsenal
    How many players is everybody looking for and from which teams?
    The season ticker is not inspiring me for any of the teams fixtures, either before or after GW29.

    1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Also expected that Aston Villa v Spurs will be added into that gameweek which will make life a little easier for those with no FH.

      1. Denis Tueart on the wing
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        Didn't realise that - thanks

    2. Sterling Archer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      think having even 6 players in gw29 wont be 2 damaging, i wouldnt fancy using my FH then even if i had one!

      1. Denis Tueart on the wing
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Thanks, I will be looking a 6 or possibly 9 if Villa V Spurs is added.

        I always feel that a hit is only a two-point gamble, especially for Midfielders and Forwards.

    3. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      If you're Free Hitting in 29 you're doing it wrong. If you can get 8 out and cover the best captain picks, you'll be fine.

      1. Denis Tueart on the wing
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Actually think most of the teams have something to be said for them. Intend to field about 8 mostly with players who’ll provide good bench cover going forward. This becomes easier if Villa Spurs is added of course

      Leeds are unpredictable but clear value

      Fulham and Brighton are cheap are both on a defensive roll.

      Arsenal are intriguing - especially if Auba is back on song. WH are also an interesting pick - not 4th in the table for nothing

        Good advice, much appreciated

    My WC decisions weirdly hold in the balance of whether Fulham get a DGW in 26.

    Crazy times

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Same haha

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Very low chance and their DGW fixtures aren't great either

  15. dbeck
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    unfortunately cant get Ings in, i have no leeds so will address that, how does this look?

    Out: Antonio, Soucek, Mee
    In: Bamford, Raphina, Strujik -4

    Leaves me enough itb to get Bamford to Kane next week

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Who are your forwards that you're doing Bamford > Kane? Keep Bamford.

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        it will be Watkins and Kane, team for 26 will be something like this

        Ederson
        Dias Stones Digne Konsa
        Mo Bruno Jack Son
        Watkins Kane

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Fair enough.

          Triple City defense. Really not to my liking but that team looks strong in isolation for GW26.

          1. dbeck
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            yeah the gundo points are so tilting but havent had the luxury of changing it as always had more urgent fires as its not like the city def isnt performing

            Thoughts on Son and Kane double up? I dont have to get in Kane but he might be the best TC shout

  16. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Will this be OK for a -4 next GW? (-4) for Bissouma -> Raphinha.

    Pope
    Dias Stones Dallas
    Gundogan Bruno Salah Son Raphinha
    Bamford Ings

    Martinez Watkins Mee Bednarek

  17. Tshelby
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Any tips? Might safe the ft

    The current team:

    1ft - 0.0 itb

    Martinez
    Shaw, Dias, Mee, Coufal, Dallas
    Grealish, Salah, Bruno, sterling, Gundogan
    Watkins, Antonio, Bamford

    1. tibollom
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      yea id save

  18. woodles
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    On wildcard. Is Son essential for this run or is Kane enough spurs attack?

    Could replace with Maddison which allows me to keep Ings through to DGW27, rather than playing bamford (whu)

    1. tibollom
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      yea one of the two is enough imo

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Most think he is essential, I've found a way to keep with Kane

    3. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      no one is essential, but playing for the same team doesn't matter in terms of expected value

    4. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I'm only going with Kane. Don't think the double-up is worth it at the moment.

    5. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      If I was to WC, I would be looking to bring both in, but 1 is perfectly fine I think

    6. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Son is not essential, I own him but would prefer Kane tbh

  19. tibollom
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    so with 2 FT and 1.0 ITB, what do you suggest I do guys?

    a. CTaylor to Dallas and save FT
    b. DCL to Ings and save FT
    c. any other ideas?

    Lloris Button
    Awb Dias Cancello Mee Ctaylor
    Raphina gundo salah bruno son
    dcl bam watkins

    1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      A

      1. tibollom
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Thanks mate - dallas could be struik.. or could do CTaylor + Dcl to Struik + Ings?

  20. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    People need to learn to spell Struijk here haha

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      *correctly

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Not at all it's easy to spell, Struijiki

    3. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I'm glad I have spelt his name him right in the post below this!

    4. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      or avoid getting him

  21. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Anyone looking to bring in Struijk instead of Dallas? He has looked a decent threat at set pieces and should be play in DGW25. Also it allows teams with no BB left to move to a cheaper bench after 25.

    1. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Looking at both, since Struijk will be the perfect 5th defender going forward

      1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Not going with Bamford and Raphinha as the other two Leeds players?

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          No space for Rapha since I plan for 5 dgw26 midfielders (no wc)

          1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Fair enough

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Prefer Dallas myself, but I got him back in the day when he was £4.5 I think so I am happy to keep

      1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Easily a season keeper when you got him at 4.5! Just trying to weigh up if Dallas is worth the extra 1m for DGW

    3. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yeah, probably. The only worry is if he will still play in BGW29.

      1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Yup agree with the game time concern for 29 but for 25 he should play both games.

    4. Catastrophe
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I'm going Struijk over Dallas.

      1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        what's your reasoning for going Struijk over Dallas?

        1. Catastrophe
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          This is my BB26 Team:

          Martinez*, 4.5*
          Stones*, Cancelo*, Targett*, Shaw*, Struijk
          Salah*, Gundogan*, Fernandes*, Son*, Maddison*
          Kane*, Watkins*, Bamford

          Basically no way to fit Dallas in. BUT Struijk has played the last 9 games, he's a perfect (long-term) 5th defender at 3.9, looks fairly versatile which you would hope reduces risk of rotation and I'm also persuading myself he offers *some* attacking threat - a great header against Arsenal...

          1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            He did have 3 misplaced headers from a corner or FK in the Everton or Palace game so the threat is there.

  22. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Is this a decent BB team for GW26?

    Ederson - Meslier
    Konsa - Lowton - Pereira - Dias - Rudiger
    Gundo - Bruno - Son - Grealish - Raphinha
    Kane - Watkins - Ings

    Would mean only Meslier and Raphina the SGW players

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Not overly keen on the GK/defence selection but not likely to backfire too much

    2. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      SOU DGW26 is not that certain (City can get Wolves and Spurs can get Fulham), but yeah it's decent anyway

    3. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Depends how the fixtures drop mate 😉

      Can you stretch to martinez and cancelo over ederson and konsa, Emi gets the save points and Cancelo has the attacking threat?

  23. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Anyone here has any idea if PVA will be dropped again?
    Terrible performance against Burnley

    1. Daniel - When to BB?
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I don't get it why he plays to be honest. He should be impact sub as a winger and that is it

  24. Daniel - When to BB?

      sterling>KDB tempting ahead of arsenal

      1. seewhyaxe
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Sterling -> KDB is tempting for me too.

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      And Gundogan won't play FML

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Time to say goodbye to Salah then

          😀

    4. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Don't know if I will be rushing to get him back in. Depends on whether Gundo continues to perform as good as he has been

    5. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      With Champions League resuming and the league all but won, surely he'll be cautious with him while he builds up match fitness.

  25. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Do you think this makes Pereira safe for both games in the double or a hint that he will only play one?

    https://twitter.com/LCFC/status/1361979242494504960?s=20

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Not sure, Brendan could use the same excuse for the double. Long term injury, etc.

  26. Hybrid.power
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    I just thought of something. It was around this time last year we were planning for a blank followed by a big double gameweek. Then everything got cancelled. Can't believe it's almost a year now!

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Wasn't it a month down the line? I think we went into the 1st lockdown in mid to late March here in the UK

      1. The Rumour Mill
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I think you're both right, before the pandemic came we were coping with megastorms in February which postponed a City-Arsenal game, so there was lots of speculation about that rearrangement first. Then it was all made a moot point anyway!

  27. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    If on WC now, is Rudiger too good to ignore at 4.6m?

    Seems fairly nailed now despite some tough fixtures in the double....

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I think he's a good pick yeah. I still don't fully trust Tuchel with regards to rotation, but Ruidger seems as nailed as you could be in this Chelsea team.

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Depends if you intend to BB in 26 I suppose

    3. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yes, great pick

  28. Bojaninho
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Been off all week, anyone be kind enough for a quick update?

    Waiting on confirmation of dgw matches this week or is it 27?

    what's the general though if no FH but have WC and TC.

    Thank you all

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      It is 26. WC25, TC26 seems popular

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Very much team dependant though. I am sure given that you are not BB26 you can navigate 26 with FTs only and keep your WC

    2. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      26 is meant to be double, but they leaving it late with fixture announcement! TC you can use anytime, I wouldn't use wildcard this week unless we get info and you want to BB next week to be honest.

      1. reo19uk
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        That was my hope to WC this week and bench boost next week but so hard to do not knowing what matches will be in GW26

        1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Yeah I'm holding off for now, can always BB another week.

  29. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Is Soyuncu nailed for Leicester for their double?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Should be.

  30. Quan MisTaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    What about this for a wildcard, leaving double City Defence behind, bringing in Sterling and making ready for a kdb switch when nessesary. Ive put my double city def WC after for comparison. A or B if you had to..

    A

    WC25
    Areola, (Martinez)
    Stones, Shaw, Dallas (Rudiger) (D.Burn)
    Bruno, Salah, Sterling, Gundo, Raphina
    Kane, Bamford, (Watkins)

    0.8mitb FH and TC still left to play

    BB26

    Dallas + Raphina > Pieters + Barnes (-4)

    Martinez, Areola
    Stones, Shaw, Rudiger, Burn, Pieters
    Salah, Bruno, Sterling, Gundo, Banres
    Kane, Watkins, Bamford

    B

    WC25
    Areola, (Martinez)
    Cancelo, Shaw, Dallas (Rudiger) (Stones)
    Bruno, Salah, Gundo, Raphina (Barnes)
    Kane, Bamford, Ings

    2.2mitb FH and TC still left to play

    BB26

    Still unsure on my moves. Dallas, Raphina, Bamford, and Ings all possible moves out. Pieters, White, Burns, Grealish, DCL, Watkins possible moves in.

    Martinez, Areola
    Cancelo, Shaw, Dallas*, Rudiger, Stones
    Bruno, Salah, Gundo, Barnes, Raphina*
    Kane, Ings*, Bamford*
