Scoutcast Episode 377 – Making sense of Double Gameweek 35

Joe and Seb are joined by Karam to look at the key issues facing Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of Gameweek 35.

The fans’ protest at Old Trafford at the weekend served up an array of new permutations for the Scoutcast crew to ponder as they prepare for this week’s bumper set of fixtures.

The postponement of the fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool means that Jurgen Klopp’s troops are likely to play twice within one of the next two Gameweeks. Meanwhile, the Red Devils will possibly avoid a blank in Gameweek 36, making their assets even more attractive.

As Joe, Seb and Karam await confirmation of the scheduling changes, they analyse the different scenarios to prepare for.

Chip strategy is crucial to this and fortunately, each of the Scoutcasters has one chip left to deploy for the week ahead, which features a raft of teams playing twice.

Joe reveals his Bench Boost plans for Gameweek 35, while Karam and Seb unveil the 15 players that have made their Free Hit squads.

The crew take a deep dive into the numbers of the best premium picks and low-budget gems, not just for the weekend’s fixtures but also for the season run-in.

With Michail Antonio (£6.4m) back from injury for West Ham, it looks like David Moyes’ side could be key to FPL managers’ plans for the tail-end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Elsewhere, Rough with the Smooth features a return to form for a serial top 10k finisher, the remaining fixtures are frisked, and Karam takes his turn to pick a differential.

Captains are revealed and the Scoutcast trio look back on their contrasting fortunes in postponement ravaged Gameweek 34.

    Hope they announce rearrangements before the next dl...

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 19 days ago

      Maybe they are waiting on United to be confirmed EL finalists. Or just background arrangements

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 19 days ago

      Could see a sneaky 18:31 announcement post deadline on Friday evening tbh

      Pulling West Brom Pool in to the following Wednesday would still be 5 days notice at that stage

      1. Rassi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        That would be a giant middle finger to all fpl managers. Doubt they will do that.

        1. jimmyharte
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          The prem don't care about fpl managers

          1. Rassi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Of course they do. The game is Premier League's official product and they don't want bad pr.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Hope they give me Kane points from that phantom goal 2 or 3 years ago where he swore on his child's life he touched it.

  2. Ohh1454
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Is Adams being overlooked ? Feel like he could be a good pick this week.

    1. Pukkipartyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Is he even nailed...

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      He has only been a good pick for 3 or 4 week this season so far.

    3. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Saints look decent going forward.

      Block, block, block

  4. Pukkipartyy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Is there even time to announce the Liverpool DGW35...?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yes, already decided, just waiting till 2 minutes after deadline to announce.

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Enough time for me to swap Konsa and Phillips.

  5. ElliotJHP
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    How to solve a dilemma like Leno. Got 2 FTs but feels wrong to get rid of a DGW keeper, even with the rotation risk.

    A) Swap for Pickford
    B) Keep, hope he plays, and make attacking transfers elsewhere

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?

      Keep and hope, surely transfers better spent on players with higher potential ceiling.

  6. stu92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Is Son to Greenwood worth it as a one week punt for DGW35 if it then means a -4 in BGW36? Would be quite a bold move, closest challenger is 18 points behind me in ML and also has Son.

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Unsure with United fixture congestion and little to play for

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Probably not. Is he going to play both?

  7. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    With 2 Free transfers and only Bench Boost left is it best to use this week?

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      need to see team

      1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Martinez Schmeichel
        Dias R.James Veltman Webster Holding
        ESR Salah Jota Rashford Son
        Kane DCL Nacho

  8. Fuddled FC
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    I have Mendy & Forster

    Is Forster likely to play gw36? Otherwise I will have no playing keeper

    1. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Forster won't play GW36 for sure

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Going by Hasenhutl's comments, no.

  9. Shaw must go on
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Morning All..

    Roma sign José and spurs paying more than half of his wages...
    Well done Tiago Pinto... 🙂

    1. El Presidente

      Levi's great managerial experience strikes again

    How was your Gameweek?



    Were any of your players benched? Did your transfers pay off? How did your bench perform? Did your captain return?



    Share your tales of joy and woe from Gameweek 34, here:

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      For once, I have a smooth.

      Maddison and Bruno to Son and Bale for -4pts

    2. Fuddled FC
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I was 32k overall and hoping to get to sub 10k.
      Very disappointing week - I had 7 squad players not playing and I captained Kane, points score 38.

    3. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Why dwell on this shambolic GW? No point.

      1. The Rumour Mill
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Because the random nature of events makes it most likely to produce the most interesting rough's and smooth's of the season?

    4. Forgetmeknot
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      The obvious issue of players struggled as I struggled to get 10 out, but JWP 10 points from 3rd on the bench was an unexpected smooth

      I imagine there will be some corkers!

    5. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I was shagged sideways by the Man U postponement

    6. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      TAA Robertson Bruno & Greenwood all missed out but snagged Welbeck & Veltman points off the bench so can't complain

      If 35 becomes a DGW for Liverpool I'll class it as a massive win

    7. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Ended up with a small red arrow after three of my starting eleven and my bench (Saka, Rudiger, Phillips) didn't play, so ended up with only 8 player. BB and FH which I saved for the next couple of GW's are also likely to be adversely affected by Sundays postponement.

    8. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Only woes. Ended up with 9 playing out of which:

      Bamford 1 point
      Struijk 1 point
      Martinez + Konsa + Coady + Lingard 8 points
      Kane captain fail

      Dropped 12 k: 47k to 59k

    9. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      LOL.

      My defense played a total of 0 minutes (Shaw, Rudiger, Dias, Phillips, Holding). I also had 6 players in the United - Liverpool game. All capped off with Kane (c) and no Son.

      This season can't end fast enough!

      1. Mince n Tatties
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        That is rough. Unlucky matey

      2. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Ouch, and I'm complaining about my defense!

    10. Hungry Singh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      1. Rough - Cancelo, Watkins, Mane out for a -8.

      2. Smooth - Bale one of the 3 in and (C).

    11. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Slaughtered! 23 points.

      - 6 in MUN-LIV.
      - Holding missed out
      - Martinez, Dallas, Bamford, Lingard
      - Kane (C)

      At least I got Dunk off the bench, and Nacho got an assist..!

    12. fusen
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Smooth - the week started great, I had 3 players played and they all returned points. It then went downhill from there and only Son returned something after that.

      42 points, - Son, Mendy, Watkins, Iheanacho (then blanking) Coady, Maddison, Lingard, Kane (C)

      Rough - So 8 active players in the week with the following getting zero minutes

      Dias, Trent, Holding, Azpil, Fernandes, Jota, Forster

    13. mad_beer ✅
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      The week started with 32 points on the bench. The postponement meant that I got 26 of those points. 56 points all out.

      Still having a dreadful season.

    14. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Watkins to Kane for a hit did not end well

    15. Mince n Tatties
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Rough: Blank Salah, Bruno, Rudiger, Azpilicueta

      Smooth: Veltman and Dunk off my bench. 53 Points for the week - into the final of the FFS Open Cup. Highest score in Last Man Standing and into the Quarter Finals. Happy Man!

    16. Tommy J
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Had to try something different to have an outside chance of winning my ML. I knew most of my rivals would captain Kane. I could have upgraded Vardy to Kane but I swapped Jota to Bale(c) and ended with 94 points. I still need to catch 58 points(ML leader had a decent gw with 58 points but caught up 64 points on 2nd place) but I have my wildcard and the two above me have no chips-an outside chance!

      1. Mince n Tatties
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Take a bow sir! Bravo!

        1. Tommy J
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Thanks although to be fair tried a few other differentials recently that didn't work!

      2. The Rumour Mill
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Astonishing smooth, well played!

    17. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Only one in my ML with TAA, Jota, Shaw and Salah.

      Ready to make ground when you know what happened.

    18. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Rough: Holding, Rudiger, TAA, Robbo, Dia, Salah, ESR all no shows . . . .

      Smooth (ish): -8 for Fernandes, Cavani & Raphina to Bale, Sterling & Brewster - paid itself back but more importantly had i not made those moves i would have had 10 no shows and finished on only 13 points!

    19. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Rough: only 7 starters who would combine for a mega 20 points.

      No Azpi, Rudi, Holding, Phillips, Salah, Bruno, Jota.

      Captain blank (obv).

      Vardy has been a colossal waste of money.

      7.7m GW rank.

      Hovering just outside 50k before the week, now 95k.

      Smooth: Dawson got a positive score (he has actually averaged negative points over the past 7 weeks). However he did get booked in the 90th minute which made it a nervy finish to the gameweek.

      Mount assist.

      Only 4 gameweeks to go.

      1. The Rumour Mill
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Thats a cracker, most rough I've seen thus far!

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          That smooth tho. Beautiful .Who would have thought Coufal to Dawson on WC a couple of weeks back could cost in the region of 30 points!

    20. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      All rough this GW , side down the slippery OR slope continuing. Total of 5 points from defense of Martinez , Dallas and Konsa. No jammy bench points with AWB no show and Stones suspended. Bumford and Lingard blanking not helping as I hoped. (K)ane fail not so much of an issue as that was the case for everyone. But outside 20K now, and defense still in sad shape, so giving up any hopes of top 10K, will be happy to stay within 100K at end of season

    21. teneighty
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Got 7 players out and a total of 29 points.

    22. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Double Brighton defence (started Dunk, Veltman off the bench) got me my first green in 4 weeks despite only 9 players.

    23. Trippier Hazard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Transferred Bruno out for Son, which paid off (for GW34 at least). Like many, I had 4 non-starters from the MUN-LIV game, but this brought on Watkins and Digne, that helped me to a score of 53 and rank rise to 149k, highest of this season so far for me.

    24. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Roughish: lost 7 pts by going Watkins --> Kane instead of Bamford --> Kane
      Smooth: 55 pts, 11 playing players, Cancelo, Dunk, Coufal, Son

    25. Scotch Jock
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      All rough:
      Lost 5 MUN/LIV, Raphinha, Rudiger, Leno and Forster - so only six playing, with Kane(c).

      Down 30 - 50 points on most of my mini-league.

      Actually thought I was well set at the start of the GW.

    26. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      My early WC to bring in the likes of Bale, DCL and Digne a week earlier paid off handsomely (other option was WC36 after FH35). Side benefit was having only 2 from LIV-MUN. I brought in Mitchell in WC as a 3.8 bench fodder thinking I would never need him until the end of season but 1 point from the bench was a nice surprise. Only rough was double Leeds def but can not complain about that.

    27. Mac90
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Rough: United Liverpool cancelled. Top 10 ML rivals gained their bench points.

      Smooth: None of them owned my kapitan Bale

    28. Triggy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Another generally smooth week - 17 green arrows in the last 21 weeks. Free hit to come now in GW35 and I'd actually prefer it if Man U - Liverpool dropped into GW36.

      Transferred in Bale for Bruno, had Son already and double Brighton clean sheet for a total of 59 (no hits) and a rank rise of 1530 to 675.

      That makes it a rise from rank 1,065,385 in GW 13 to 675 now and chasing a few decent cash mini league wins (just need to gain 20-30 points on the leaders in a few but the FH may do much of that).

    29. The Point About It Is
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      7 blobs rescued by Son (c), Mendy and Nacho gave me 43 points and a small green arrow. Rough and smooth all in 1 week.

    30. SweepaKeepa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Smooth:
      Havertz and Welbeck over Lingard and Kane
      Captain Son
      Smashed the ranks
      Rough:
      Can’t get away with that every week.

    31. Igz08
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah uhmmmm no thanks from me

    32. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Smooth:
      Jota (who i don't own) dropped from Liverpool lineup, whilst Phillips (who i do own) was deemed fit and starting.

      Rough:
      Liverpool game called off, making a moot point of the Smooth.

    33. G00LI0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Rough:
      23 points...
      5 players missing due to postponement
      Raph still injured
      Kane fail

      Big dent in top 10k hopes and push in mini leagues l

    34. AllGonePozzo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Have to say smooth even though only had 9 players. Captained Iheanacho having sold Kane previous week for Vardy. Son, Wood and back 3 of Digne who I brought in for Coady , Coufal and Veltman who came off bench for TAA. 54 points from 9 players

    35. Johan Queef
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Ended up with 6 players and 22 points. Can't find the smooth. Also somehow didn't get Antonio's points on draft as most of my team managed 10 minutes from the bench.

  11. fcsaltyballs
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Best option for the DGW (if 2, which def):

    1. Castagne Watkins
    2. (Ward / Christensen / Coleman) DCL

    Cheers

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      2. A lot of people here won't agree but Ward. Also has a good 36 fixture.

      1. jimmyharte
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah I'm swapping out Dallas out for Ward. People going heavy on Zaha dunno if it's worth it especially for a hit.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Can prove to be really good. I am not going there for sure.

      2. fcsaltyballs
        • 5 Years

        Thanks, I definitely prefer DCL over Watkins

  12. Disturbed

    Current OR 8k. Playing BB this gw. Top 1k finish a realistic chance?

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Depends on your players. if those 4 additional players are good differentials then yes.

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Mendy
        Taa castagne Shaw
        Bruno son siggy zaha
        Kane dcl nacho

        Pickford Dallas lingard Ward

        If liv dgw is announced then Kane and son > salah watkins is the plan.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          I see Ward as the only differential there. Siggy too maybe. Your BB plan is nice and should help you climb ranks. For top 1K finish you will need a few differentials in your team + them doing really well from now till the end of the season.

        2. jimmyharte
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Swapping kane and son out would be an horrific decision. Kane and son will rip it up the last few games of the season v easy teams and you won't have em. And they play Leeds, kane could easy get a ht vs them

          1. Disturbed
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Agreed, plan to get them back in gw36. Think salah and Watkins outscore them this gw if liv have a double.

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years

      Unlikely but possible

    3. Fuddled FC
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yep I reckon

    4. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I don't think so. It's immensely hard to gain ground.

    5. fclackless [Brazil Nuts]
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      50 odd points is a lot but not impossible

    6. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      5k is possible, 1k could be too much. Any idea about points difference?

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        58

    7. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Some lucky captain punts probably needed.

    8. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      No. Shd make top 5k tho

    9. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      difficult but not impossible, if you can throw yourself into top 5K after this week, find some good (captain) differentials for last 3 GWs and try your chances. If still around 7-8K after this week, I would not risk top 10K and play safe though.

  13. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Is this Ok for next week. Phillips plays instead of Konsa if Pool's DGW is announced. Have 0.4 ITB to do Nacho to Antonio in 36.

    Forster
    TAA Rudiger Konsa
    Salah Bruno Son Martinelli
    Kane DCL Nacho

    Martinez Lingard Phillips Struijk

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I saw the comments on here about Forster playing both 35 games but can't bring myself to play him over Mart

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks. Playing him only because I do not want to double up on Villa defense with those fixtures. If Pool's double is announced Phillips plays instead of Konsa and Martinez instead of Forster. Will go with just one Villa defense.

        Rest ok?

        1. kennethrhcp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          looks good, I'm not pushed on Chel defence but nothing worth a hit there

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Sure. Thanks! Do well.

    I know a lot can change in this game, but how does this strategy look for next few weeks? Would prefer if Liverpool doubled in 35 but will probably still go with it even if it ends up being 36.

    Martinez Leno
    Coufal Digne Phillips (Dunk Rudiger)
    Salah Jota Son Bruno Lingard
    Kane Iheanacho (Vydra)

    GW35 - Phillips & Son > TAA & Raphinha (if fit, bold option) or JWP (doubler, safe option)
    GW36 - Iheancho (blank) > Antonio

  15. Chief Break-Everything

    I am a mere 5 points ahead in my ML. I have a wildcard left. My rival has nowt.

    When would be the best time to play the WC? I have 2FT for this week, so can get to 6 DGW players with no hits.

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      what 6 DGW players?

      list out team as is

      1. Chief Break-Everything
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Martinez*
        Shaw* Veltman Coady (Dallas Dawson)
        Son Salah Bruno* Lingard (Jota)
        Kane Bamford Ihenacho*

        2FT & WC available

        1. kennethrhcp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          if Liverpool get DGW35 I'd nearly WC to add 2 more of them

          1. kennethrhcp
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            also if not WC now then when?

        2. ShaunGoater123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Just use your free transfers for now.

          If you keep your nose in front until the last week then you can use it as a defensive move, or if you have slipped behind can use it to attack and win on the final day.

          1. Chief Break-Everything
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Thanks.. This is the dilemma. You're both right!

  17. Podorsky

    Will we get confirmation of the United-Liverpool game before deadline on Friday?

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Hopefully

    2. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yes if Liverpool will get dgw35, otherwise not necessarily.

    3. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      it'll be tight but hopefully

      Reading on here ppl think it'll announced after united (hopefully) go through

  18. DavidBadWillie
      2 months, 19 days ago

      What to do with Michael Keane?? Is he fit and likely to play?

      He's got a great GW36 fixture too.

      1. Athletico Underachieving
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Holgate was shocking v Villa. Would expect Keane back in

      2. Boom XhakaLacaSaka

        2ft 0.1itb BB active

        Who would you look at getting out/in here (willing to take a -4 if it looks beneficial)

        Martinez Schmeichel
        Dias R.James Veltman Webster Holding
        ESR Salah Jota Rashford Son
        Kane DCL Nacho

          if liverpool get dgw maybe Son to Greewood & a defender to TAA.

          upgrade ESR with funds left?

          1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
            • 1 Year

            • 1 Year

            Personally would rather Zaha over Greenwood

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years

              Ya def a better call

              If you read back

        Raph -->

        a) Siggy
        b) Zaha
        c) JWP

        1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka

        Any thoughts here? Nothing itb & struggling to think what to do...

        Mendy
        TAA Maguire Fofana
        Salah Son Greenwood Bruno Lingard
        Kane Ihenacho

        Subs: Forster, Holding, Dallas, Davis

      5. wonkeydonkey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        On BB this week. Should I take a -4pt hit for:
        Vydra -> DCL & Son -> £7.3m Mid (Greenwood, Mount, Zaha).

        Will need to take a -4 or -8 next week to get rid of Mendy/Castagne/Maddison/Nacho

      6. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Any truth in the theory that Kane is still hobbled from his ankle injury? If so, perhaps he is the best cash cow.......

        Could do, Kane>DCL, Vydra>Watkins, Rudiger>Digne for a -4 and be well set up for GW 36

      7. McSauce
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        The -4 Decision and does it pay off?

        Calvert Lewin (whm, avl, SHU) total points (-4)
        Kane (Lee,WOL)

        Does the Kane --> DCL move yield over 4 points?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          It can but their is always a chance of backfiring

        2. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Prob not. Different story if DCL had a run of 4 or 5 scoring goals.

          1. McSauce
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years

            he is due! just love a DGW risk

            1. GreennRed
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              I'll probably get him bit for Bamford. Keeping Vardy and Kane.

      8. rokonto

        Was i lucky having Bale as captain or skilful?

        Will the Liverpool fixture have to be announced as a double for GW 35 before the deadline, or could they add it after the deadline to GW35?

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          We don’t know. Last time it was added 1 minute after the deadline

          1. Rassi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Last time it did not change particular gw's fixtures but the fixtures of the gw after that, right?

        Good morning one and all!!! Best option here???

        A- Shaw

          • 1 Year

          A, but only just..........ideally your defense would be TAA Digne Shaw this week

          1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            Yea I agree mate!!! Digne with Sheffield United the week after and Shaw with Liverpool makes it very close!! TAA and Azpilacueta will are the other two!! Cheers mate!! Think it will be Shaw!!

      11. Bad Stoob

        TAA Digne Shaw (Coady, Dunk)
        Salah (C) Greenwood Lingard Son Siggy
        Kane Chancho (Vydra)

        Trying to claw back a -30pt deficit in ML. They have Castagne, Martinelli, Salah, TAA, Rudiger on a DGW and annoyingly Bale (Capt last week!).

        Any glaring changes I need to make?

          Goooood morning you fine and beautiful people.........I need your help.

          Would you play DGW Rudiger ( MCI and ARSE) over SGW Son.....??? I have Kane.

          Salah/Bruno/Son/Siggy/Lingard

            Zaha is tempting.

            • 4 Years

            Also, possibly it would be nice to use third Pool spot considering their fixtures.

              Rudiger or Holding > N.Philips
