        Can anyone help me if I should WC or not?

        I have a lot of crap fodder on the bench so I'd need to WC now if I am going to use a bench boost for 26.

        I have 2 free transfers
        Option A: Son, McGoldrick -> Raphinha, Ings; 15 fixtures in GW25; 18 in GW26 (Without bench boost, which would be useless with my current team)
        Option B: Wildcard

        Current Squad
        GK: Johnstone, Walton (doesn't play)
        DEF: Cancelo, Stones, Mee, Holding, Mitchell
        MID: Salah, Fernandes, Sterling, Son, Lookman
        FWD: Bamford, Watkins, McGoldrick

        With Dallas my team's formation is effectively 262 isn't it?

          Get Cancelo and go 1-7-2

            And if the other is Shaw you get 0-8-2. Team will easily score 180 points.

            Cancelo or Dias to Shaw? Or neither?

            Lol, them Grealish rumours are hilarious. So if a player doesn’t train he’s instantly injured? Ridiculous, he’s almost ever present, and of all injury’s a ‘shin fracture’ like it isn’t a wind up aimed at his no existing shin pads.

                  I can only see 2 but a few more talking about it based on those reports.

                  Not sure what to believe

              best 6.2m forward. Maja worth a punt this gw?

                1 month, 21 days ago

                I might be taking a punt on him. Ben thinks Jose's comments sign towards Fulham having a double in GW26. So, they might have a double and play in GW29.

              A. Starts
              B. Does not feature

              Anyone reckon Holgate is worth a punt for DGW26? - Everton should have decent double that week, especially if they end up playing West Brom

              A. Grealish
              B. Stones
              C. Gundogan

              I can only start ONE of these players this week. Who would you go for?

                • 5 Years
                1 month, 21 days ago

                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 21 days ago

                  KDB is already in my starting line up. Would you still play Gundogan?

              Really don’t want to take a hit this week but I’m starting Antonio and cavani with not much on bench.

              Do I take the hit and get rid of one

                FPL Stats has Antonio on ..... -265

                He can only drop 0.1, right. Will he likely drop 0.3+ over the week?
