    Which combo scores more this week?

    a) Ederson and Ben White

    b) Martinez and Dias

    1. thepuntmaster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      A

  2. Stupendous
    • 8 Years

    Sounds like Gundo isn't gonna start then

    Might start DCL over him

    1. Pedram
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Source?

    2. Poison Apple
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      If he is not gonna start, it’s almost certain he wun play. So play him as your 11 anyway and put DCL as first sub

      1. Eskimo Brother
        • 2 Years

        Agree

    3. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      good move imo

  3. umerlfc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Would you BB this week where Gundo is not 100% to start?

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      No

    2. Poison Apple
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I’m sure there r better weeks to do so

    3. thepuntmaster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Nah

  4. Bounce

      I'm currently on 17 consecutive green arrows and I want to make it 18 lol. Should I bench Pope or McCarthy?

      1. umerlfc
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        McCarthy for me

      2. alsybach
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Play McCarthy surely!

      3. Flynniesta
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Great consistency.
        I’ve got both & likely to bench McCarthy

      4. claretparrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Bench Pope. For the double he made sense but Burnley are nothing like they used to be defensively. 2 pts vs 4 pts is my best guess

      5. Poison Apple
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Bench Mc

    • Pukki Blinders

      So Grealish to who lads?

      1. jammie26
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Is Grealish out? He is not even flagged.

      2. ludaslol
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Who scores more this GW?

        A) Timo

        B) Ings -4

        1. Z
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          A

        2. alsybach

          People are perfectly happy to make the most of Crellin's advice and info every week, yet when he gets something wrong he's a laughing stock...

              Ultimately it is unlikely to be a million miles away from Crayons' predictions - just go with the best team you can.

            I own Gundo and Antonio. Take a chance one will play or do -4 for Ings? I have Cresswell and Mitchell left on the bench, but Cresswell may come in if Cancelo or Dias doesn’t play.
