      Would have done the same if not for the Phillips injury

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      GL, armband on him o/

    3. Tonyawesome69

      With Phillips out, Leeds tend to concede more and score less. I think the captaincy is enough

      Whats your rank chuckster? Last year you did good, no?

      1. Chucky
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        it's so bad that I haven't even bothered to look at it lol 😛 missed last gw's deadline to make it worse and now it's time to go big...

        1. Woy_is_back
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 4 days ago

          Last few years I only missed one or two deadlines before that I "missed" 10 per season lol. Bamford is a good choice for tc though

  2. Tombory
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    I have wildcard and bench boost left... When to use? I have no idea

    1. JoeSoap
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Could take hits next week and bench boost if there are doubles and save WC.

  3. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Is Ben White at 4.4m good value? Seems nailed

    1. faux_C
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      I have him!

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

      Yeh. Not sure whether to pay more for Dunk's chance of goals though.

    3. mwa1t
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Played more minutes than any other Brighton def this season. Definitely nailed.

    4. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Totally nailed, but not got the goal threat of Dunk.

    5. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Yes

  4. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Team and bench order look gtg?

    Pope
    Cancelo Dallas Robertson
    Salah Bruno Grealish Raphinha
    Ings Bamford (c) Watkins

    Martinez Gundogan Tarkowski Coufal

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      If Gundogan starts and huals you're done for

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        Would you start over Grealish? Was concerned about Gundogan cameo gorc1 point

    2. BooYaKasha
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Start Guido and bench Ollie

  5. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Antonio> Ings(-4)??
    Antonio on the bench atm. But Grealish in starting XI.

    1. JoeSoap
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Tempted, see below.

    2. G Banger
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Same for me, cant pick!!!

  6. JoeSoap
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Probably doing A. Any of the others worth hits?

    A. Mendy>Raphinha
    B. Antonio>Ings
    C. Mitchell>Dallas/Dunk

    Pope
    Cancelo, Dias, Mee
    Fernandes, Grealish, Salah, Gundogan
    DCL, Antonio, Bamford
    Steer, Coufal, Mitchell, Mendy

  7. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Wanna just do 1FT for this week so what would you do here? (0.3itb)

    McCarthy
    Alioski - Lowton - Mee
    Sterling - Gundogan - Salah - Son - Bruno
    Adams - Bamford

    (Johnstone - Watkins - Stones - Coufal)

  8. vincentwsho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Start Cresswell or Dias?

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Cresswell for me.

  9. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Is West Ham's fixture-swing cause to sell Antonio for #DGW25?

    #FFScout career Hall of Fame no. 1⃣ Fábio Borges has listed his potential replacements

    #FPL #FantasyPL #whufc

    I saw fixtures in the twit and panicked

  10. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    .I've chosen:
    * Pope over Martinez
    * Raphinha cap over Bamford
    * DCL first on bench before Stones

    Am I certifiably crazy or correct?

    1. Steve McCroskey
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      It's so crazy it just might work

    2. Im New Here
      7 months, 4 days ago

      I like Raphinha cap and am tempted to do the same

  11. Catastrophe
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    With all the uncertainty and shenanigans, what's best?

    A) Ings & Konsa (Son on bench). Ings & Raphinha -> Watkins & Barnes (-4) in GW26
    B) Son & Targett (Watkins on bench). Raphinha -> Barnes in GW26

    Cheers!

    1. ted mcnure
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      B looks best

  12. Tsparkes10
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Ings fit?

  13. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Where are the fixtures?

  14. Baines on Toast...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    The best strength of Fabio Borges is he's not on here or Twitter an hour before the DL.

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Yeah, he knew Grealish was injured yesterday.

  15. Nay08
    7 months, 4 days ago

    bottomed

    So with what Mou said, should I hold on one more week to transfer Kane in?
    the initial plan was DCL+Pereira to Kane+Raphinha

    if only do raphinha, I would bench DCL still.
    and if I do both, I would bench Watkins.

  16. Arcaddde
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    7 months, 4 days ago

    Start / sit GK thoughts please:

    Martinez (Leic) or Mendy (Sou)

    Chelsea more likely to keep a clean sheet but Martinez has been lights out of late....

  17. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

    why does the page scroll me up towards the article, I don't want to read the article 🙄

    1. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Was just wondering this

    2. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Same. Pain

  18. Corona is not good 4 U
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Make Soucek -> Ward-Prowse sense?

    West Ham fixtures will get nasty and Southampton will have a few double gameweeks?

    Thanks!

  19. Bubz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Will be funny if they release the fixtures at 6pm

    1. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      6:30pm*

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      That's my hope

      Nothing in this as WC already used but chaos is fun

  20. aborg
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    On WC. Bring in Kane for Watkins and play him this GW or play Watkins this GW and use FT to bring in Kane for Bamford next week?

  21. mwa1t
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Several accounts reporting Grealish injury now. Still sceptical, but does seem odd he wasn't in training pictures

  22. Buck The Trent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Would you play Antonio ahead of Gundo?

    1. Ha.
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      no

  23. Pedram
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Is it wise to have Kane as your first bench sub?

    1. Ha.
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      no

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      It’s wise to play him

    1. wantsharptv
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Got a feeling gundo will come on as a late sub..

      1. The Prophet
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        I’m the same I’ve put DCL ahead of him.

    1. Super Saints

      7 months, 4 days ago

      Gundogan Cancelo

  27. Wılly
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Sterling or Gundagon to Raphinha
