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.

    Leeds Wolves was never looking like a high scoring fixture.

    The Southampton game, however..................

    1. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Maybe another 9 goal thriller?

      There will be suicides by non Bamford owners and the few non-captainers.

    Rival BB with Meslier as second GK - Hating wolves

  5. TheDragon

    Has there ever been a goal in the first half of a Wolves game?

    1. FPL Pillars

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Does most weeks

  7. Rainer

    1 month, 28 days ago

    Dallas CS & Raphinha CS point more valuable than a Bamford captain goal if Dallas or Raphinha don’t assist him.

    FPL can be ridiculous sometimes.

    1. Daniel - When to BB?
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      cs is super important

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I would say "yeah, but it's Leeds". But then . . it's also Wolves.

    3. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years

      Cue traore scoring his first goal in about 45 matches

  8. Sterling Malory

    • 5 Years

    Ings and Antonio > Watkins and DCL for free?

    Leaves 13 DGW players for BB

    Martinez
    Dallas Cancelo Shaw
    Bruno Son Maddison Gundo Salah
    DCL Watkins
    Areola Bamford Stones Lowton

    0-0 would be epic as a struijk punter

    1. Tiki-Taka

      i'm not ready for this after the lowton jam budget pick last week over Mee/Tarkowski

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Wow!!

  12. JAYPEE
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Good BB team for DGW 26?

    Martinez Lloris
    Dias Stones AWB Lowton Kabak
    Salah Fernandes Gundogan Lookman Rodriguez
    Kane Bamford Watkins

    I’m also taking a -8 or -12 for this squad

  13. GE
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Who do you sacrifice to get Kane?
    A heavy hitter or multiple transfers?

    1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Ings probably leaving for me. Just need to find 0.2 elsewhere - Mee or Areola out for example

      1. GE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Not worry about DGW for Ings in GW27?

        1. WE GO FOR IT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          It's Sheffield + 2 points most probably. Kane can outscore him over the next 2 GWs.

    2. Keeptrying
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Ings with 1FT

      1. GE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        What about his double in GW27?

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      WCarded myself

    4. Tiki-Taka
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      i sacrificed salah. one of them (salah, bruno, son kane) had to go in order to balance the rest of the team, particularly with a GW26 BB

      1. GE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Same problem, could backfire with Salah..

        1. Tiki-Taka
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          yeah i'm gonna be firmly behind the sofa each week, but i felt like it was the best solution - rest of the team looks juicy

    5. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Ings - easy.

      1. GE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Double 27?

        1. michaelington
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Transfer back in.

    6. fantasywizard
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      i'll do a sideways transfer of Maguire to Shaw to fund Bamford to Kane

      1. GE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        That’s nice

        1. fantasywizard
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          yeah but i'll have to do it by tonight or i will be priced out...that's not so nice but i think i'll have to take the risk. what do you think?

          1. GE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Then I would

    7. Lazaretti
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Ings & Robertson most likely.

    8. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Did Raz + Antonio to Raphina + Kane today, so Raz

    9. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Salah is the simple answer

  14. Spg76
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    I’ve been a 40 year long suffering fanatic of Welsh national team. Tyler Roberts captained a champion Welsh under 15’s and was center forward. Wales would win games and score 2, 3 or 4 goals. He NEVER got on the scoresheet. Gave him the benefit of the doubt because we were winning but it did create suspicion. Get him off!!

  15. estheblessed
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    For DGW 26

    a) Kane & Traore
    b) Son & Watkins

    1. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I'd prefer Neto over Traore

      1. estheblessed
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Not a bad shout. Although they have city away.

  16. fantasywizard

    bottomed

    Dumb question probably but please help here:
    I have Cavani with Purchase price of 7.9. He is currently valued at 8.0 and will drop in price today. My selling price will stay at 7.9 correct?
    Thanks!

    1. Alisson WondHaaland

  17. WE GO FOR IT

    Neto has lookd good so far! Hopefully he gets something!

  18. antis0cial
    • 4 Years

    Was planning Digne Ings to Konsa Kane. Worth it? Everton dgw fixtures look perfect.

    1. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Spurs Villa double on horizon - I’m Kane + konsa too at mo (only want DCL for the double).

      1. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Thanks, yeah I have DCL.

    2. Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yeah worth it. Everton arent getting clean sheets regardless of these fixtures

      1. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Haha so true. Thanks

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I doubt it's worth. Surely you have better uses for the FTs.

  19. michaelington
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Missed the chaos just after the deadline. It’s a disgrace that they held the fixtures back until 1 minute after the deadline. Guess that ruined a lot of plans for a lot of people. I put faith in the Crellin and came out ok but others may not have taken the risk.

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      imagine it's so the servers didn't get bummed to death just before the deadline

    This Bamford has 181% effective ownership, the 2nd highest seen this season
    Previous most owned + captained players:

    GW20 Fernandes 187% 2 points
    GW25 Bamford 181% ? points
    GW22 Salah 173% 2 points

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Massif

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      A prestigious list for Bamford to be the top scorer of with 4 points.

    3. Free Hat
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      So 4 would be a win

  26. Pépé Pig

    Very much hoping for a Wolves goal

    1. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Hope Neto gets it!

  27. Duke Silver ☑
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    It's all good guys. World No. 1 has Bamford captain. He's guaranteed a goal to go in off his arse in the 2nd half.

  28. Mr. O'Connell
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    I have no sources for this, but someone's telling me that Dean Smith has previous for not mentioning Grealish injuries. Same thing happened in their promotion season and he missed 12 matches.

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Best ask Dean Smith to tell his backroom not to transfer him out.

      It's amateur if you think it through.

    2. aapoman
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      He has no responsibility to mention his injuries. He is the best player in the team so why give the opponent inportant information before the match

      1. tambourineman
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        The players have revealed it a few hours later so all he's done by not revealing it earlier is make himself look a bit of a tit.

      https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/aston-villa-jack-grealish-injury-15545541

      He downplayed the injury, "hopefully he’ll be available for the Christmas period", he next appeared in March

  29. SADIO SANÉ
    • 5 Years

    anyone on here keeping Ings? thought this would probably happen, kinda planned just to get rid by a DGW against City might still be ok...

    1. Mr. O'Connell
