    Just make a call.

    If your team is out of shape by 4 or 5 players wild card.

    If not you have next week for dgw26.

      Or is this an ongoing saga of perfect dgw BB dominating planning?

      If so wow.

      A collective freeze?

      TC Kane/Son next week gets ruled out if you WC next week.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        True.

        So WC then in advance.

    Sorry, I dont understand those Tweets on Kane. Is he likely to play or not?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      If he can walk, he'll play.

      1. Fit_to_drop
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        I think so. They are no good without him. And Mou knows that.

    2. OleGGMU

      The lad clearly is fine, but given his injury record and the fact that he has had one of his best seasons thus far compared to at least the previous 2 seasons, he felt playing too many games so soon after return would put him at risk and so made the call to rest up and avoid the Europa game, smart move imo and its good for us Kane owners too.

      Why, nothing to do with him. He's at the mercy of the powers that be.

      Given everyone enough to decide their own way on.

      Wow.........I'm sure all of us could've done a better job than Ben?....yes???

    3. OleGGMU

      This and others that have been having a go at Ben Crelin should remind themselves that he does not work for any TV company nor the premier league and therefore is at their mercy, however , he has been and is an FPL legend of note for years whom always makes the effort to get information and put them together to aide us FPL managers make more informed decisions and he does it for FREE!!.
      this disrespect needs to stop, it is toxic, uneducated, distasteful and is what can discourage people like Ben, whom put in the effort to aide FPL managers for free. There is not a single FPL manager, in any manner , shape or form whom is obligated to follow Ben Crellin and others to hilt and essentially do as they advise , further Ben certainly does NOT encourage anyone to do anything, he simply produces the content and gives HIS OPINION about it, the rest is up to YOU the FPL manager to make your own decisions.

            Im hoping NOT to have to WC this team at all in GW26 eventhough i have all 4 chips left.

            Does that look possible? Will have 1FT next week. Kept Kane all the way through. Don't mean to own Pope. Brought him in for GW24

            Pope

            Why is everyone going Areola over McCarthy on WC??

              • 9 Years

              Concerns McCarthy gets dropped for Forster + continued uncertainty about whether / if / how many SOU DGWs

                Where are these concerns coming from? I also remember reading about them

            2. Dthinger
              • 4 Years

              save points, maybe?

              Cheaper. Plus Fulham might have a double in 26. If they don't they are playing a potentially Zaha-less Palace.

            Uhhhh which one do I play?

            A) Sanchez
            B) Mccarthy

            I want to back the DGW but Sanchez feels like a guaranteed clean sheet
