Dallas at left-back as Bielsa shuffles Leeds pack for trip to Wolves

Stuart Dallas (£5.0m) appears to have returned to the left-back position for Double Gameweek 25.

The Fantasy Premier League defender has recently spent a prolonged period in central midfield but Marcelo Bielsa has reshuffled for Friday’s trip to Wolves.

Tyler Roberts (£4.6m) joins Matheusz Klich (£5.2m) in midfield with Pascal Struijk (£3.9m) in the defensive midfield role vacated by the injured Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m).

Ezgjan Alioski (£4.4m) is the one who misses out as a result of Dallas’ positional change, with Jamie Shackleton (£4.8m) at right-back and Liam Cooper (£4.3m) paired with Luke Ayling (£4.4m) in central defence.

Captained by over 80% over the top 10k for Double Gameweek 25, Patrick Bamford (£6.9m) starts up-front with Raphinha (£5.4m) and Jack Harrison (£5.5m) providing the width.

Wolves are in a 3-4-3 formation for the visit of Leeds, which features Romain Saïss (£4.9m) and Leander Dendoncker (£4.6m) either side of Conor Coady (£4.8m) in the defence.

Jonny (£5.4m) and Nelson Semedo (£5.2m) are the left and right wing-backs respectively while Pedro Neto (£5.7m) and Adama Traoré (£6.0m) provide the width either side of front-man Willian José (£7.0m).

Double Gameweek 25 Line-ups

Wolves XI (3-4-3): Patrício; Saïss, Coady, Dendoncker; Jonny, Moutinho, Neves, Semedo; Neto, W José, A Traoré.

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Dallas, Cooper, Ayling, Shackleton; Struijk; Harrison, Roberts, Klich, Raphinha; Bamford.

      Hmmm was considering TC next week but may WC instead to ditch Burnley and some bench players and pack the team with the likes of Kane and DCL

      Tyler Roberts decisions suggest his IQ is pretty low.

        Leeds as expected can’t be trusted, especially without Phillips.

        Bruno captainers the real winners, barely over 100% EO vs Newcastle is ridiculous!

      6. Gudjohnsen

        Ings or Bamford out for Kane?

        Have DCL

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3. AC/DC AFC
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Have you got Gundogan in?

        4. Ch0udini
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Ings out.

            Leeds asset could be useful on GW29 and less cash needed to upgrade.

          BB OR TC?

          Triple Captain Kane or BB with Neto, Mee, Grealish?

          Cheers

            I think Grealish is injured

              Then we will see how Aston Villa 2022 will perform without Captain Jack

              Barkley, Traore, and El Ghazi to feed Watkins

              I have Watkins, now I expect a blank, we will see.

          Team looking ok for DGW26. Bench of Dallas, Coufal and Raph or Bam
          Ings the only SGW player.

          Barring injuries will save FT and see if I can navigate BGW29 without using my WC, then WC for GW30

                FC Southampton 09

                They need a German sounding name to honor inglorious past

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Sussed my -8 for week 26
          McCarthy, Mee, Soucek, Antonio
          to
          Lloris, El Mohamady, Son, Watkins

          Had loads in the bank so not a fair comparison but was just going to transfer out the 2 West Ham for no hit but seeing the fixtures I think the -8 for McCarthy & Mee to Lloris & El Mohamady is worth it. Do you?

          Planning wild card in 30 or 31.

          If you have a Free Hit and a Wild Card left (no BB), tactically, do you play the WC along with everyone else (i imagine) this week (for GW26), or Free Hit.

          I suppose I need to look at fixtures down the road to tell me if I'm WC'ing good short/medium/long term assets.

          Bamford returns only giving a 20% benefit really takes the fun out of captaining him, not that he looks like doing anything so far.

            What takes the fun out of it is all the statistical chit chat on BO

              You're not wrong there, EO is a very irritating concept.

          Have 5 players with single fixture. No point taking -8 or -12 to bench boost, right?

            • 6 Years

                But he's this weeks double.

                Sometimes I lose track of which time warp we're operating in.
