India’s reigning FPL champion answers Double Gameweek 26 questions

Fantasy Premier League managers are always full of questions whenever there’s a Double Gameweek and this week we face the biggest in the game’s history.

Given that my season is down in the dumps, I thought I would take some of these questions and try to help you guys instead.

Let’s get started…

QUESTION ONE

Who are the Bench Boost enablers and cheap defensive options? Also can you look into how defence is the only differential currently in the game as the template grows stronger?

(from @fplmasalah)

Hi Nehal, thank you so much for the question. When it comes to enablers and cheap defensive options for the Bench Boost, there are lot of options that have come to the fore recently. 

Two teams that have two fixtures in Double Gameweek 26, and have displayed some really strong performances of late are Fulham and West Brom. 

The Baggies have a great run of fixtures in the next three Gameweeks where they face Brighton and Hove Albion (home), Everton (home), Newcastle United (home) and Crystal Palace (away). 

Sam Allardyce’s men are 11 points off safety at the moment and what this tells me is that in these next four games, they have to go the win and try to accumulate three points. 

The way West Brom played against Burnley while they were down to ten men really caught my eye. I have been really impressed by their new forward Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m) who seems to be getting a big chance every game he’s playing.

In the last four Gameweeks, out of all the players costing £6.5 million or less, Diagne is top of the table for big chances and xG non-penalty. I like his fixtures, his underlying numbers and the recent form for the team. I also prefer Diagne to Fulham’s Josh Maja (£5.5m) primarily because of the fixtures Maja has after Double Gameweek 26 where he faces Liverpool (away) and Manchester City (home) in Gameweeks 27 and 28 respectively. 

In defence, I quite like the look of out-of-position defender Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.6m) who is finding himself in the box very often for this West Brom team. He could have easily had a goal and assist in the Burnley match.

Gameweek 21 Scout Picks features another Man City triple-up

Fulham’s defensive numbers have been very impressive as well which is why Alphonse Areola (£4.5m) is my favourite budget goalkeeper option for the Bench Boost. 

In the last six matches, Fulham are amongst the top five defences in the league for shots in the box conceded. They have kept four clean sheets in the last seven games and, in general, have tightened up at the back. In addition, Areola has a match in Blank Gameweek 29. 

Fulham’s motivation cannot be questioned at the moment. Scott Parker has galvanised his troops and they are in the midst of a very interesting relegation battle. They are going to treat each match as a cup final which is why I like the budget picks emerging in defence and in attack.

With regards to your comment where defence is the only differential in the game at the moment, I strongly disagree. Son Heung-min (£9.5m) is owned by 51% of the game and has scored only one goal in his last eight Premier League starts. The likes of Harvey Barnes (£6.9m) and Kevin De-Bruyne (£11.8m) are still owned by under 20% of the game. Harry Kane (£11.1m) who has a good looking Double Gameweek in 26 and some decent follow up fixtures is still under 30% owned. 

While I agree that there are a lot of good differential picks emerging in defence and that it has been very difficult to beat the template this season, it is not the only place to make ground.

QUESTION TWO

How the top 10k FPL managers set their teams up for Double Gameweek 24

What is the best time for using the Free Hit Chip?

(from @m7mdi_Rm)

My Wire co-host and fellow Pro Pundit Zophar has looked at this in detail. You can read that by CLICKING HERE.

QUESTION THREE

Double Gameweek 26 Scout Picks built on Man City and Everton assets 3

Rank these defenders considering fixtures: Marcos Alonso (£5.7m), Lucas Digne (£6.1m), Ricardo Pereira (£5.9m), Luke Shaw (£5.1m), John Stones(£5.2m)/ Ruben Dias (£6.1m)

(from @FPLfrasier)

There is a lot of interest in defenders at the moment which is why I thought I would take this question on. So here’s what I think. 

First up, I would have one of the Manchester City defenders as my pick. Despite Pep Guardiola mentioning that he’s going to constantly rotate his team, Dias looks fairly nailed-on and is still very cheap for what he offers. 

The way Manchester City are playing at the moment, it will be a surprise if they don’t keep a clean sheet. They have four games in the next two Gameweeks and you would expect them to shut their opponents out in at least three of them. 

I really like Shaw right now. I have been talking about him for a long long time. The Manchester United man is the cheapest defender of all those you have mentioned and his underlying statistics are off the charts. 

Salah and Fernandes blank again as focus shifts to defensive assets 8

In the last six matches, Shaw is second for chances created among all outfield players in the league not. Not just that, his delivery has a lot of quality, he’s on set pieces and in the last two games in particular, he’s been coming a lot closer to goal. I would not be surprised to see Shaw get a goal as well very soon. I’m not particularly worried about his rotation threat either. 

My third preference is potential out of position Pereira. He looked great against Aston Villa and there is a lot of upside with this pick playing on the right-wing for Leicester City. They have good follow-up fixtures after the Double Gameweek as well. 

My fourth preference is Digne and surprisingly Alonso is my least favourite option primarily because of what I saw at the weekend. Thomas Tuchel was visibly not happy with Alonso’s performance in the draw with Southampton and if we are to jump on Alonso, I think the right thing to do would be to judge his performance in two very difficult games in Double Gameweek 26 and if he comes through that unscathed. Chelsea have good fixtures after that so it’s a matter of one or two Gameweeks where Alonso could move from my fifth choice to first or second based on how he does in the over the next few days

QUESTION FOUR

What should I do with Danny Ings (£8.5m)?

(from @tanyasharma)

It does not look very encouraging for Ings at the moment does it? Personally I think there is enough upside in removing him for Double Gameweek 26 considering one of his two fixtures in Double Gameweek 27 is against Manchester City.

The moves to make would be either an upgrade to a trigger-happy Harry Kane (who is a real captaincy option for me) or a downgrade to a fit Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) who has a very good set of fixtures in Double Gameweek 26. 

That’s it from me for this round of The Burning Question. I hope you enjoyed this article.

    How do folk think Chelsea will do against Man U and Liverpool?..They managed to keep a clean sheet against atletico so...

    This is for taking into a TC consideration. Bruno/Salah/DCL

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Can see a win and a draw for Chelsea this GW. If Silva returns even stronger at the back.

    2. NETFLIX & CHILWELL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Chelsea fan here - I can see two draws if I'm honest.

      TC currently on Salah though - I think he can score well against Sheffield United and nick something against Chelsea.

    3. im1974
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Double blanks. Rudiger good option this week

  2. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    How has Bale been playing recently?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Spurs fans want him to start.
      Doesn't mean it will happen

    2. Knock Down Your Aerial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Looking a lot better. I think he’ll get returns this DGW, just not sure on 2 starts.

    3. Pedaso Pirates
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Looking more like what he is capable of. Very good Thursday. Think he will get a start now but not nailed.

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Looking great but only starts from the bench in 2 of last 3.

      You'd think he starts at least one of the next two. Danger of someone like Bergwijn coming in for the other

    5. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Really seeing the progression.

    6. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Good, has gone up a gear and playing a more free, roaming style role, there is pressure from the fan base as well so I am pretty certain he starts v burnley

  3. Knock Down Your Aerial
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Sorry, bottomed - how nailed is Burn for Brighton?

    1. flynner25
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      100% I would have thought

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Webster won't be back until after 29 by the looks of it. From the reading I'm doing it looks like he should start till then either as LCB/LB/LWB.

      The only unknown if if Lamptey does start, whether that means Veltman drops to the bench or could be used on the opposite side.

      1. Knock Down Your Aerial
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Great thanks for this information, much appreciated. I thought Burn was playing LCB anyway? Some people are talking him up at LWB but I thought that was Alzate?

        Ultimately, I need Burn for 29 as I am currently on WC. Do you think he is safe?

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          I'm in the same situation as you mate, and I'm asking the same question - and I don't know.

          Burn is mostly playing LCB, but Webster can play there hence was the main threat. Now we know Webster is unlikely to be back before the International Break, LCB should be his.

          If they opt for a back 4, they don't really have any other proper LBs, so he should play.

          He can also play LWB. Bit of an odd fit as he's huge, but does play there. The danger is that with Lamptey being back and Veltman in good form, whether he may try to accommodate both. It's not been tried before so maybe unlikely, but it's an educated guess from reading.

          Alzate can play LWB and they could drop someone else there too.

          Essentially I don't think they have many options, but I'm not sure he's nailed either.

          1. Knock Down Your Aerial
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 3 days ago

            Thanks mate, appreciate this insight.

            I reckon I may just look to White then at 4.4 to be safe?

            1. Hazz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 3 days ago

              He's nailed yep.

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      They say Lamptey will replace him (I dont agree but everyone keeps saying this)

      1. Knock Down Your Aerial
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah im not sure on that, Veltman been plying RWB.

  4. Pedaso Pirates
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    For the DGW and next games, would you rather have an Everton defender, or a Spurs one? I have neither just now.

    1. Knock Down Your Aerial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Digne.

      1. Pedaso Pirates
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Can't afford him. More like Keane or Dier.

        1. Knock Down Your Aerial
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          Meh

    2. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I think Digne is the standout.
      Security of starts, decent u/l numbers, form(ish) team, better fixtures until 28

      1. claretparrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Keane over Dier for sure

    3. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I'm thinking Dier as i don't have FH for 29. This week only i'd say Everton cb

      1. Pedaso Pirates
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Helpful. Thanks

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

    Would you rather BB in 27 (3xsou, 3xman city) or 28(3xast, 3xeve if this is a DGW)?

    27 seems to be safer with Man City (players at least 1 out of 2 games). 28 has a higher ceiling but Man City may be benched against Fulham

    1. flynner25
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      neither for me. I would play it in 26 or hold until later in the season

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

        I just WC this week, so was hoping to get the BB out of the way... any other possible chance of using it in mini DGWs?

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      3 x Southampton is a bold one when they face City 🙂

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

        True, but one is against Sheffield, so hope that they get an extra total 5 to 6 points in the City game... so GW 28 a better option?

    3. im1974
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Do it when you think it’s right. It’s not difficult

  6. claretparrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Assuming Madds is out...

    A) Raphinha +4
    B) Barnes
    C) Gylfi(!)

    B or C would have Raph on the bench (Soucek out).

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      A

    2. GinjaWhinja
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      D) Might be worth considering Mount. On Free Kicks, Corners and Pens. Extremely underowned.

  7. luke
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    That blades game with Mo is giving me a x3(c) twitch

    1. alsybach
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I’m in!!!!!!

  8. flynner25
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Option A - Bamford+Grealish to Kane + Son (0 points hit) Play Bench Boost with Pope, Raphinia, JWP, Dallas (5 fixtures on Bench)

    Option B - Bamford+Grealish+Dallas to Kane+Son+Digne (-4 point hit) and play Bench Boost with Pope, Digne, Raphinia and JWP (6 Fixtures on bench)

    Option C - Bamford+Grealish+Dallas+Raphinia to Kane+Son+Digne+Barnes (-8 Point hit). and play Bench Boost with Pope, Digne, Barnes and JWP (7 Fixtures on bench)

    Probably leaning towards B..........but Barnes would be handy in upcoming weeks

    What do you think?

  9. Knock Down Your Aerial
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Vardy or Watkins?

    1. flynner25
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Vardy all day

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Vardy but don't expect two starts this GW = 3 starts in 7 days

      1. Knock Down Your Aerial
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        I didnt see Ayoze or Kelechi on the bench last night? Whats up with them, maybe he will get 3 starts?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          Can see Barnes moving up front for one of the games

        2. Ian & Zen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          Ayote is injured & Kelechi was suspended (just the one game)
          I doubt both will start - Leicester were poor last night with out the first teamers starting, so I see everyone back in. No news on Maddison yet.
          Brendan will be keen get 3 points straight away & stop any thought of a blip. I doubt Vardy will start the second fixture though

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Bothers me slightly but out of EL now means that fixtures will be easing off there. Bigger concern is Maddison out

  10. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    So with all the European ties over would like to bb with this team for -4.

    Martinez * areola*
    Digne* dais* cancelo* lowton* dallas
    Son* bruno* gundo* Barnes* raph
    Kane* dcl* bam

    A) Big decision here is to whether transfer out son or salah to get Kane in and I have no fh so need to build towards 29. What's your opinion guys son or Salah to keep?

  11. SomeoneKnows
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Dean Smith: "Jack could be back to play against Sheffield United next Wednesday or Wolves next week. We’ll be led by Jack on that.”

    A) Play Grealish (Bamford 1st Sub)
    B) Play Bamford (Grealish 1st Sub)
    C) Grealish > Barnes (-4 hit)

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I'm going B

      1. flynner25
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        C

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

      B

  12. Bring the Cavalry
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Who is the best keeper to go with Martinez going forward? More for using my bench boost in the future, McCarthy?

    1. Knock Down Your Aerial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Martinez

    2. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I've got those 2. Areola also an option if Fulham stay in the fight.

  13. icanseethroughyou
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Weighing up a -8 for:

    Pope to Martinez
    Maddison to Son
    Ings to DCL (going to put TC on DCL)

    Squad currently is:
    Pope, Forster
    Maguire, Justin, Digne, Dias, Saiss
    Sterling, Fernandes, Foden, Maddison, Raphinha
    Ings Bamford BDR

    Is this good or should I be pressing that WC button?!

  14. Boss Hogg
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Pick ONE of these Leeds lad to start please:

    a.) Dallas
    b.) Raphina
    c.) Bamford

    ???

    1. Knock Down Your Aerial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      B form.

    2. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Raphinha

    3. flynner25
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      B

    4. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Thanks guys.
      Don't think I can cope with another Bamford goal being disallowed because of his massive offside arms, so leaning that way.

    5. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      B

  15. Big Ronnie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Reguilon worth a punt? Got £5.6m for a defender, already have Dias, Stones, Shaw and Dallas.Other option are Keane, Targett, Soy, Aina.

    1. flynner25
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Ì think so

    2. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Deffo.
      Can you afford Perreira? If so, then him.

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Just short of Perreira and Castagna as well

  16. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Any chance KDB starts both games?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Yes

  17. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Will Sterling and Gundogan start tomorrow?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Sterling should. I’m not as sure on Gundo.

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        That complicates matters for me.

      2. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Any particular reason why Sterling should start - City fan forums seem to think he will be benched (ut what do they know 😉 )

    2. im1974
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 3 days ago

      None of us are Pep. Pointless question

  18. ELMEO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Coufal to Stones for -4?
    Alternative is play Dallas.

    (Made a couple of transfers already and currently only Cancelo + Gundog)

    1. waltzingmatildas

      Do you need Coufal for 29?

        I've currently got 3 defs for 29, so might look to get him back - it's a thought.

    What do you reckon guys?
    A) Mee to Maitland-Niles
    B) Mee to Shaw
    C) Ings to Diagne
    D) Ings to Watkins

    1. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      probably D due to decent fixtures to follow, chance of another double in 28 and jack not out long term.

      If no FH 29 then defo D.

      Shaw second choice there

        Cheers mate.

    BB gtg? No need for a hit? 0.9 ITB

    Martinez - Areola
    Dias - Cancelo - Konsa - Struijk - Vestergaard
    Salah - Bruno - Gundo - Barnes - Raphinha
    Kane(c) - DCL - Bamford

      Looks good, gl!

  21. popey
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Which to do from these;

    a) play Raphinha and Lowton - no hits
    b) Grealish to Son, play Lowton (-4)
    c) Grealish to barnes, play Lowton (-4)
    d) Lowton to Digne, play Raphinha(-4)
    e) c & d, bench Raph (-8)

    1. flynner25
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I have all these players in my thoughts at the moment. I'm definitely doing B. But am considering selling Raphinia for Barnes also, as well as Dallas to Digne

      1. popey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        keeping raph as no FH for 29 so cant do barnes and Son sadly

        So many good options this week

  22. Hotdogs for Tea

    Price rises going to be manic though night

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Maybe. So many wild cards in play though.

  23. bruuuno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Pope > Martinez (-4)?

    Martinez plays gw29 and probably an extra dgw before that. So guess he will repay the -4 until wildcard gw31.

  24. Qaiss

    Kane has had 5 double digit hauls this seasons. In those games, Son also hauled 5 times. So why are people doing Son > Kane or writing Son off completely?

    1. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I've gone both. Their scores are often aligned.

    2. Arteta
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      People desperately need cash for this upgrade.

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Maybe nobody has honed in on that exact stat.

    4. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I also don't understand why Son isn't discussed as a captain this week

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        I'm strongly considering it for a number of reasons.

        1. Pukki Party
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          Only problem is his hauls come against teams that keep the ball and Spurs can counter attack.

    5. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I'd guess its mostly down to funds and # of required transfers

    6. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 3 days ago

      There is also the bale factor who will play out right, son out left with Kane as the spear head especially Against these poor teams

      We are moving away from the counter attacking style which saw son get so much success, could still do well of course

  25. Arteta
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Olympiakos is fine. They shouldn't cause us too many troubles.

    1. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Ha

    2. Miguel Sanchez

  26. Quan MisTaka

    Man United v AC Milan

    Zlatan is back baby

    1. Earwicker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Zlatan to ruin the party.

  27. flynner25
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Option A - No points hit
    Option B - Dallas to Digne (-4 )
    Option C - Dallas + Raphinia to Digne + Barnes (-8)
    Option D - Dallas + JWP TO Digne + Barnes (-8)

    Thoughts/opinion appreciated?

    1. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      do you need them to play in 29? if so then not C as hits to get players back in also

      B or D for me

  28. Hotdogs for Tea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    So what’s the Bobby on the best WC non BB squad with a weather eye on 29 ?

    1. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Martinez, 3 City, 2 Spurs. That's 6 for gw 29.
      Maybe supplement with a cheap defender to make 7.
      Then bring in one other (Antonio?) to get 8 for the week.

      That's my plan.

      1. NETFLIX & CHILWELL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        No, that's 3 for GW29.

        City don't play in GW29.....

  29. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Isn't that the combo that makes DGW less likely?

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Discuss 🙂

  30. Tsparkes10
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    A) Mee to 3.8 and play Dallas
    B) Justin, Mee to Mitchell, Konsa (-4) bench Dallas

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Dude ... 3.8 ? 😉

    2. flynner25
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I think B is better, but not a fan of either move on their own. Hopefully it's to free up funds I assume

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Yh mate. Allows Kane, DCL and Lookman in
