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.

      lol

    2. Pukki Party

  7. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

    Semedo misses a great chance

  8. Fudgy

    Struijk almost scoring and sending me down the street naked

    1. Bobby Digital

      We're going streaking!

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      That could be a Hazard

  9. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

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

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

  10. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Ings or Bamford out for Kane?

    Have DCL

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Many games to go mate

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Ings

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Have you got Gundogan in?

    4. Ch0udini
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Ings out.

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

    5. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Depends if you like the Ings DGW in 27 of SHU + MCI

  11. Kiwivillan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Will I regret changing C from Bruno to Bamford lol

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Yes

  12. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Need Leeds to batter these so that Kilman is nailed on for the double and BB

  13. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Meslier 3 BAPs if he keeps it clean.

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Colours looking better

  14. Bruce Lee

    Enjoy retirement and thank you for the memories, Yohan Cabaye

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Ah damn that’s a shame, one of my fpl dark horse favourites back in the day

    2. CABAYE4
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Still my favourite from our recent era.

      Two goals in historic wins over Man U stand out memories

  15. jimmyharte

    BB OR TC?

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

    Cheers

    1. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      I think Grealish is injured

      1. Camino Aleatorio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        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.

  16. GE
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    BB this next GW?

    Messlier, Dallas, Lowton, Bamford

    1. HonestBlatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Yes

  17. ViperStripes
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    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

  18. Mr Johnson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Who to Sivert captain?

  19. Weasel Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Bamford ain't scoring

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      No chance

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Ever?

        Even against 9 nil Southampton?

        1. Camino Aleatorio
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 10 days ago

          FC Southampton 09

          They need a German sounding name to honor inglorious past

  20. Duke Silver ☑
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    This Tyler Roberts guys pretty awful.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Could help Dallas OOP possibility later on.

  21. Egg noodle
    • 11 Years

    All the xA and not any points!

  22. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Someone score FFS. 0-0 would be a disaster.

    1. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 10 days ago

      id love 0-0

      1. Spin The Wheel
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Wolves will score

    2. Root
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      0-0 from both games would be great.

      1. Fred54
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Both?!

        1. Duke Silver ☑
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 10 days ago

          You don't watch the same game in parallel universes?!

  23. circusmonkey
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 10 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.

  24. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Leeds (C) fail

    1. Esalman
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      150 minutes left.

  25. Weasel Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Have Son.

    Dcl or Kane?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Kane

  26. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Leeds look off the pace

  27. 'Broadsword Calling Da…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    7 months, 10 days ago

    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.

    1. Sun Jihai

        Ah okay, thank you for that, hadn't thought of that angle, awesome, will look!

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

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

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

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 10 days ago

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

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 10 days ago

          BO is worse

  29. Esalman
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

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

    1. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Depends on the players and fictures they have tbh.

      1. Esalman
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Hmm Ings, Raphinha, Soucek, Coufal, fodder.

    2. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Didn't stop people bench boosting Dias, Stones, Mee and Gundo.

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      I've got 2 without even worrying about it or hitting WC.

      1. Esalman
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Got Ings.. blame last minute panic before deadline.

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 10 days ago

          But he's this weeks double.

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

          1. Esalman
            • 11 Years
            7 months, 10 days ago

            Yeah. And he's a dgw in 27
