      Apart from Ben Crellin's amazing work, which is awesome

        A few short years ago poor Ben was constantly pillioried on here. But he persevered. I wonder what username he posts under.

        Highly debatable.

          Can you please turn the fantasy clock back to gw19?

            Of which season? 😆

            If I could I'd go back a couple of seasons when it seemed I was having more fun lol

            1. The Knights Template

              I was having more fun in gw19 at 43k. Now 567k thanks to Gundog and co.

      Anyone with a lot of doublers considering a free hit? I can get Kane in for Antonio no problem, but that leaves me with 9 doublers and I would quite like Leicester players too.

      I currently have 6 BGW29 players can could easily build to 9/10 with FTs. Just trying to figure which has biggest upside.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 23 days ago

        In your situation if I still had my FH I would

        1. greggles
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Ok thanks. Something to ponder!

      2. Davros
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Sounds sensible in your situation

        1. greggles
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Who would you target? I’ve got most of the big players, will add Kane...

          Martinez
          Cancelo / Stones / Shaw
          Bruno / Salah / Gundo / Raphinha*
          DCL / Kane / Bamford*

          Subs: Pope / Saka / Dallas / Bednarek

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            LEI

      3. Chopmahoney
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Personally I’d prefer free hit the blank week if you’re happy with your side because for a few weeks your trades will be focused on the blanks and not what is the best for your side

      4. internal error
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Id save it for GW33

    4. royals forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Your help is needed please

      Who would you sell out of Dallas or Coufal if you were thinking of BBing

      Any ideas would be welcomed

      1. greggles
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Yes, though how are you set for 29?

      2. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Coufal

      3. JustPark
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Really depends on whom I'm bringing. Quite like Leicester att so might be Soucek who has to go.

      4. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I’d say Coufal, particularly with fixtures but he’s due some scores whereas I feel Dallas has slightly overperformed and especially if he’s going to be rooted to the defence might be less prolific going forward

    5. money face bandwagon
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      If a -8 can get u 11dgw players, but only 4 players as of now for gw29, will u wildcard?

    6. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      My potential GW26 BB

      Martinez Pope
      Cancelo Dias Shaw Dunk Mee
      Salah Son Gundogan Raphinha Jorginho
      Vardy Kane (c) Calvert-Lewin

      Any thoughts? I can then slowly downgrade build for 29 and bring Bruno back for 30..

    7. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Who is essential for DGW26?

      1. KDB (Own Gundo)
      2. Salah

      1. greggles
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Probably Salah as you have Gündogan.

      2. Bavarian
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Both

    8. greggles
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Draft FH team for 26. Most of these players I already own except Leicester and Kane.

      Martinez (Steer)
      Cancelo / Stones / Shaw (Struijk / Mitchell)
      Bruno / Salah / Gundo / Barnes* (Burke)
      DCL / Vardy* / Kane*

      Does it seem worth it? The players asterisked are the ones i’d Bring in apart from the fodder.

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Not worth it for 3 players, just take hits?

      2. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Dont waste FH if that's all the moves you're taking... take hits instead.

      3. internal error
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Use your FH in 33. Blanks for spurs and city

    9. FDMS All Starz
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Best defender to own 4.7 or under? (Except Coufal/Lowton)

      1. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Brighton's.

      2. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
        • 11 Years

        Rüdiger

      3. as33

        Build up players for GW29

      4. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        BHA DEF, Rudiger or Dawson.

    10. as33
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      How many chance Alonso to start?
      50/50?

    11. mojoindojo
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Ings, Bamford to Watkins, DCL for - 4? Have no value tied in either. Gives me 11 DGWers.

      Areola
      Dias Mee Lowton
      Gundo Grealish Bruno Sterling
      Watkins DCL Kane

      Mendy Saka Dallas Coufal

    12. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      On paper my DGW 26 team looks great. But when I look closely I see Cancelo, Stones and Dier.

      Those are effectively SGW players right?

      1. Sharkytect
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Hahaha. That was my thinking too. I sold stones on wc

    13. tuturututu
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Sterling, Bamford and Justin to Son, Vardy and Mitchell for -8 yes or no?

      • Redranger
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        A) Ings & Antonio > DCL & Watkins -4
        B) Ings, Antonio & Son > DCL, Kane & Barnes -8

        1. Neevesy
          • 4 Years

      • Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Morning folks,

        So, were the fixtures released pre or post deadline?

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          A few minutes after.

          1. Rolls-Royce
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Ah, that must have annoyed a few WCer out there.

        2. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Right at or around deadline time I believe, was not around for it so not 100%

        3. G-Whizz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Post. 18:31 as I called it I believe...

          1. Rolls-Royce
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Trolls out there in the PL towers... lol

            1. G-Whizz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              I think by the time it had come round to Thursday with no announcement I started to see it happening at 18:31 and then it did lol

        4. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Same time

      • Bookkeeper
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        So Matt Targett took Grealish out of his team, 30 mins before gameweek deadline.

        1. Rolls-Royce
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          This Grealish injury news is very annoying after the deadline has passed. Why would Dean Smith not mention it in his pre-match press?

        2. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          That’s the rumor, most likely too much of a coincidence when so many within the club who play the game have done the same, if it was just him though this would be a non story

        3. EmreCan Hustle
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          How do you know it was 30 minutes?

          1. Bookkeeper
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            inside information....

            i'm pleased you notice me, it means I'm on your mind 😉

              Wrong account dude!

      • Thomas Magnum
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Had originally planned a -4 for Son & Antonio > Kane & Barnes in leaving me .1 ITB. With the news about Grealish circling is this move still worth making and if so would it be further worth it to drop Grealish for a -8 or just bench and start White (West Brom away)

        1. Corgzzzz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          surely you wait till tomorrow and see if the Grealish news is true and if so, how loong he will be out for

      • vincentwsho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Current WC team:

        Martinez McCarthy
        Stones Digne Konsa Vestergard Castagne
        El Ghazi (if Grealish out) Salah Gundo Bruno Foden
        DCL Ings (27) / Rich (28) Kane

        When should I play BB, GW27 or 28?

        GW28 seems to have better fixtures, especially with possible Villa Everton double, but worried that some ManC players might be rotated in 28... seems safer to BB in 27 if ManC players play at least one game

        Ga

      • King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Best 7th attacker on WC?

        A. Barnes
        B. Watkins

        Salah Bruno Son Gundo
        Kane DCL

        1. AppleDunk
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          B

        2. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Head to head I prefer A but presuming it means your 3rd striker will be a 4.5 id rather Watkins, but that’s because I generally see more value in getting a 4.5 mid and because if something happens to Watkins, Antonio and Bamford should be easy swaps whilst there isn’t as much in the Barnes price range

          1. King Kohli
            • 8 Years

      • AppleDunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        DCL or Watkins?

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          DCL imo

      • Von Lipwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        for GW26:
        A) Rash (save FT) - che + cry
        B) Son (have Kane) - BUR + ful
        C) Barnes - ARS + bur
        D) Maddisson - ARS + bur

      • Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        DCL & Digne looking tasty for next week. Knowing it's Everton, I am bracing myself to be disappointed yet again.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Anyone here free hitting next gw? There might not be better opportunity to use it.

        1. Rolls-Royce
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          GW29 looks best.

        2. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Considering it, if not will use in 29,33 or even 38 for a laugh. Whenever feels right, will only do it this week if I feel it’s a big improvement over what I have right now and if Grealish is out for a while

        3. Neevesy
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          If you don't have 9/10 DGW players already, I would potentially free hit.

          Yes, there is a blank week using FH on blanks can be a trap. The ceiling for potential points having 11 strong DGW players is very high.

              Shaw is an interesting option

            Good idea! But I'm 0.1 short of Mee -> Shaw unfortunately.

        Morning dzzz, early thoughts on below with 1ft and 0m. will WC31/FH33. but need to decide to either BB26 or BB30

        Martinez -- Forster
        Stones Cancelo Digne Lowton -- Dallas
        Bruno Son Gundog Grealish -- Raphinha
        Dcl Kane -- Bamford

        A: Grealish (if inj.)>> Barnes/Maddison. BB30 when Leeds (SHU)
        B: Grealish + Forster >> Barnes + Areola (-1) and BB26. similar to BB30 but will be BBing Leeds (AVL)..tougher fixture but tempted to just get it out of the way, no idea how my team will look for gw30
        C: Something else

          Stop wasting time here, go and sort out the Sahel.
          C) bring in Bogle.

          I’d be tempted to do B. Bench boost is more hassle than it’s worth
