Can Aubameyang prove a worthy alternative premium FPL midfielder?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang‘s (£11.3m) recent form and upcoming fixtures have put him on the Fantasy Premier League radar for the end of the 2020/21 season.

Between Gameweeks 27 and 38, Arsenal face just three matches against the current top six and their number 14 has double-digit hauls in two of his last three 90-minute league outings.

Aubameyang was a commonly-owned asset at the start of the campaign but some shaky form and poor performances saw Fantasy managers largely replace him with a Manchester City midfielder or Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m).

With two blanks in a row and a tough run of fixtures coming up, many are wavering on the Manchester United man while the Citizens’ midfield has been a rotation minefield of late. Could now be the time to consider Aubameyang once again?

With Arsenal featuring in Blank Gameweek 29, we have taken a comprehensive look at the data from our Premium Members Area to compare the two players, and other big budget options in midfield.

    Was that a DGW we just had? The only reason I ask is that my team looking at the points gained hasn't realised it was 😆

    Sterling owners, what are you doing? Sell, hold or even captain?

    Long suffering owner.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Hold, not sure I can stomach captaining him or seeing him haul if I sell

      1. DMil
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Probably the right decision, on balance. It’s just frustrating when he’s blocking my route to other City assets. The lad couldn’t finish his dinner right now

    2. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      If I had him I’d captain n go for it tbh

    3. Slurpy
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I'll keep him but i've been of a cliff captaining him this he seems to never return when I do.

    4. Nedvěd11
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I am holding and currently captain...

  14. si
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    The spurs heat map at home to a Burnley in a 4-0 win is just nuts. You would assume they were away at Bayern Munich. Pope is in more attacking positions than Bale.

  15. Nespinha
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Transfer out Sterling for Son/Bale?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Sterling has a DGW so could backfire

      1. Nespinha
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        He only plays one game, and even in one game hes been useless

    2. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Before double GW?

      1. Nespinha
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        SGW since he doesn't play both as we could see last GW

        1. Sgt Frank Drebin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Hard to say really. I would risk personally

          1. Sgt Frank Drebin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Wouldn't*

    3. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Nah

  16. Viper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    A. Pope -> Martinez

    B. DCL -> Antonio

    C. Bruno -> Son (Bench Soucek)

    Which move stands out?

    1. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I’d hold DCL until theres n chance he doesn’t have a double week 28, so if you have to do 1, I’d say A or B so I’ve narrowed it down a bit for you

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      B

  17. PompeyUpNorth!

    Desperate for some advice please folks. Am really stuck. Been on a roll. Up to 154000 after a dreadful start.
    Thinking Shaw to Cresswell?

    Martinez (Areola)

    Shaw stones Cancelo

    Gundo (C) Salah Bruno Son (Raphina)

    Watkins Bamford DCL

    1. Kuzser
      • 4 Years

      I’d actually play Raph and bench Dcl.
      Who are your other defs that you want to get Shaw out?don’t like Rudiger?

      1. PompeyUpNorth!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Yep Rudiger is cool but no game week 29. I need week 29 players I think or roll?

    • 4 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Who to play from these 2 guys?
    A) White (LEI)
    B) Pereira (bha)

    They play against each other. Heads says White, as Brighton very strong defensively at home, but heart says Ricky P

    1. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Pereira is so, so attacking.. I’d go him personally but it’s a tough call

    2. AzzaroMax99

      I have both, 0-0 would be ideal xD
      Play B

                  Rashford only has 0.31 non penalty xG/90. However Cavani is 2nd with 0.64

              Is it worth to go Steer to Johnston for -8 to have 2nd playing keeper for BB? Other transfers were Barnes+DCL to Mount+Antonio

              Forster ¦ Martinez
              Cancelo Reguilon Stones
              Bruno Gundogan Son Saka
              Kane Ings Bamford
              | Rashford Holding Coufal

              Would you start someone from the bench??

              Thoughts on a move for this week?

              Martinez
              Cancelo / Maguire / Stones
              Son / Bruno / Salah / Gundo (c)
              Bamford / Richarlson / Vardy

              Bench: Foster, Smith Rowe*, Coufal, Douglas*

              1ft and 0.5 itb

              I still have my WC, BB and TC.

              A. Play wildcard
              B. Maguire --> Reguillon or a spurs defender
              C. Vardy --> Antonio
              D. Any suggestions?

              Thanks!

                  Don’t need wildcard yet? Bring in Tierney maybe for a punt?
