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.

    Ideally would like to have Digne, Dias but this was the 'best' I could manage for gw26 WC.

    Martinez
    Stones Cancelo Keane / Dallas Struijk
    Son bruno salah gundo barkley
    Kane watkins / bamford

    1. aapoman
      • 7 Years

      Uhh that is not very good imo. I would not have Leeds on WC.

      1. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Struijk cheapest defender and other two with eye on gw29.

        Not much better for their price and would lose value if I sell so.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      You can save money with Keane > Godfrey and Dallas > Burn. Maybe that gets you enough to do Barkley > Grealish or Barnes.

      1. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Good shout.
        But I like Villas fixtures and just hoping Barkley evens out Grealish.
        Would make it easier if hes injured.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          7 months, 9 days ago

          If you can save money on a WC, save it. You never know when it could be useful.

          1. Free Hat
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 9 days ago

            True. Just want to make the most of gw26 because only TC chip left.
            And have to keep eye on gw29 which makes it harder. Otherwise Id drop Leeds guys.

    3. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      I’d get some Fulham in there. Loads to play for and have a decent double and game in 29

      1. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Problem is for who. Aina is possibility, but I like Dallas his value and Evertons fixtures.
        And in mid and upfront too many other options.

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

          Not keen on Everton defence or Struijk (might lose his place by 29). Not sure on Barkley either, lookman a good option at that price or

  2. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    If Grealish is injured why isn't he flagged?

    1. Garth Marenghi
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Has this been confirmed?

      1. Duke Silver ☑
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Not confirmed but a few of his teammates have transferred him out this week.

        1. Garth Marenghi
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 9 days ago

          !

    2. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Rumours started an hour ago and nothing confirmed by the club.

      1. Avery
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 9 days ago

        More like 7 hours back

    3. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Just speculation is it not?

    4. jason_ni
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Because twitter rumours are nothing more than speculation until proven otherwise.

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

        Someone suggesting Barkley is dropped for nxt game.

        Would doubt this if Grealish was injured aswell.

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

          On Villa forum nearly poster wants Barkley dropped for weeks

  3. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Has Targett transferred out Grealish from his FPL team?

  4. Shark Team
    • 4 Years

    Roberts OUT

    1. Shark Team
      • 4 Years

        • 10 Years

        you got my hopes up. dude has been the weak link

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

    The doubles being announced after deadline will hurt casuals more. My BB well set up for next week

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Mine isn't so looking like TC. Will WC anyway after 29.

    2. pundit of punts
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      What did you end up with ?

      This is my BB team

      Ederson - Lloris
      Pereira - Stones - Shaw - Holgate - El Mohamady
      Bruno - Son - Grealish - Gundogan- Barnes
      Kane - DCL - Watkins

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

        Martinez areola
        Targett shaw stones Dias Dallas
        Salah Bruno raphinha Barnes gundogan
        Bamford Ings Kane

        Will probably take a hit to move on 2 of bamford Ings raphinha Dallas

        1. pundit of punts
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 9 days ago

          Looking great as well

          I miss Salah in my team

      2. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        You’re team looks great

  6. The Mandalorian
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    FPL Towers likely contacted the Premier League and asked them to release the new fixture schedule after the GW had started. They did it to help the casual players.

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

      Disadvantaged the casuals tho

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      How uncasual are you?

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      In theory it would hurt the so-called 'casuals' more than those checking Ben's spreadsheets.

    4. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      It is like the 100 years war: Casuals vs saddos like us.

    5. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      It’s like Robinhood and $GME. The systems are rigged I tell ye

    6. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Fixtures were to be released at 4pm giving a 2 and half hour window to prep a WC team for the doubles.
      Casual manager would not know about 4pm and likely see the new fixtures about 10 mins before the deadline. So they try to screw everyone instead.

  7. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    The Wolves game was always going to be tight.

    The Southampton game could be the one.

    But the amount looking to WC into doubles a plenty in 26, its not always nirvana,

    1. Tinkermania
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      They can still score 2 tonight and 2 against Soton. Too early to say

  8. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    This is gonna end 1-0 Wolves isn’t it

    1. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Friday (c)urse

  9. Buck The Trent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    I want to get DCL, would you get rid of Bamford (plays in gw29) or Ings (plays in dgw27) ?

    FH still available

    1. MOZIL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Bamford

    2. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Probably bamford if using FH in 29? Also worth looking at FH in 33

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      When are you thinking of free hitting?

      1. Buck The Trent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        Not sure yet

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Probably Ings, since I'll need Bamford for GW29.

      One of Ings' matches is MCI, so that makes it feel more of a SGW (at least probability-wise) .

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        In fact I don't know what I say probably, I only really looked at dropping him next week in any case.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 9 days ago

      Bamford easy especially if you have FH.

  10. jason_ni
    • 5 Years

    Come on wolves...get that goal!

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No, I need that Meslier 10 pointer

  11. GE
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 9 days ago

    Best way to get Kane?

    1) Ings, Cavani and Soucek -> Kane, Watkins and Reed (-4)
    2) Cavani, Digne and Soucek -> Kane, Lowton and Reed (-4)

    10 doubles next week with Kane TC (+ Bamford) with a -4

    That’ll do. Not WC’ing yet.

    Going to have to do Ings to Kane tonight or I’ll be priced out, weird buying and selling a player in the same day

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

      Risky, I’d wait and take a -4 if needed instead? So many games to be played

      1. Tinkermania
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 9 days ago

        I think he is saying he bought Ings today before deadline. Selling today after deadline doesn't cost -4 if it's only transfer.

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
