Grealish returns, Willock injury latest and the race for seventh: Gameweek 37 notes

Our round-up of Wednesday’s Premier League action begins with the three early kick-offs.

A win for Everton and a defeat for Tottenham Hotspur kept things interesting in the race for seventh, with the team finishing in that position qualifying for the UEFA Europa Conference League play-off round.

Providing the clubs in contention actually want to qualify for the new tertiary tournament and don’t view it with the same disdain they did the Intertoto Cup, it should ensure Spurs, Everton and Arsenal (who beat Crystal Palace on Wednesday) are near enough full strength in Gameweek 38.

Spurs (and with a massive goal swing, Everton) could still overhaul West Ham United in sixth place on the final day, so Fantasy managers should still be able to call upon their key assets from these clubs on Sunday amid the possible end-of-season rotation elsewhere.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 1-2 ASTON VILLA

Ollie Watkins‘ (£6.4m) remarkably consistent run of FPL form continued in north London, with the Aston Villa striker notching his 23rd attacking return of the season.

He has blanked in only one of his last eight appearances, a run that coincides with him racking up the most penalty box touches in the division.

He registered six shots in the area against the Lilywhites, only one fewer than Spurs managed as a whole.

The galvanizing effect of the return of Jack Grealish (£7.5m) can’t be underestimated, with Villa looking more like the side we saw in the first half of the campaign.

A home fixture against a defensively sound Chelsea is hardly in his favour but Grealish as a Gameweek 38 punt would otherwise be worth exploring.

As for Spurs, they might have ‘something to play for’ on the final day, but you’d never tell by Wednesday’s flat display.

It was a bad day all round for their Fantasy assets, with an anonymous Son Heung-min (£9.7m) not producing a single shot or key pass, Gareth Bale (£9.2m) benched due to the demands of the swift fixture turnaround and Harry Kane (£11.9m) perhaps trying too hard on what may have been his farewell appearance in front of the north London faithful.

It’s just one goal in four Gameweeks for Kane but the chances keep coming, with only Christian Benteke (£5.5m) having had more shots among FPL forwards in that time.

Sergio Reguilon (£5.6m) had a topsy-turvy evening, claiming the assist for Steven Bergwijn‘s (£7.0m) strike before scoring a comical own-goal to bring Villa level.

NEWCASTLE UNITED 1-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED

Joe Willock (£4.8m) scored for the sixth straight match as Newcastle United edged out Sheffield United in the final game of the season at St James’ Park.

His Fantasy Premier League ownership has increased almost tenfold in the last two Gameweeks and he is the Premier League’s joint-top goalscorer from Gameweek 30 onwards, despite starting just three matches in that time.

Already among the top five most-bought FPL midfielders of Gameweek 38, there was a late scare in the win over the Blades when he walked gingerly from the pitch.

There was, thankfully, positive news on Willock from Steve Bruce at full-time – but less encouraging updates on fellow injury victims Joelinton (£5.7m), Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.2m) and Martin Dubravka (£4.8m):

Joelinton has a knock. Saint-Maximin, we don’t know yet if it’s a calf injury or whether it’s just a kick as well so we’ll see how he is. Dubravka has a bit of a hamstring but I don’t think there’s anything too bad. Joe Willock is just fatigued.

Fulham await Newcastle in Gameweek 38 and there is encouragement for Willock’s new and existing owners in the fact that the Cottagers are without a clean sheet in their last nine matches, conceding 18 goals in that time.

The Mapgies’ shut-out on Wednesday was, as it happens, their first since Gameweek 27 and only their second on Tyneside in 2020/21.

EVERTON 1-0 WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS

Everton kept up the pressure on Spurs as they defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0.

Richarlison (£7.8m) ended a ten-game goal drought with the game’s only goal, nodding in a Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.9m) corner.

But it’s Everton’s defence that has caught the eye over the last few months from a Fantasy perspective.

The Toffees have registered eight clean sheets from Gameweek 25 onwards, which is the best record in the division.

It’s on the road where they have really excelled, with six shut-outs in their last seven fixtures away from Goodison Park.

That good form on their travels will be put to the test in Gameweek 38 but a match at the Etihad mightn’t be all that daunting, with Manchester City likely to have one eye on their upcoming UEFA Champions League final clash with Chelsea.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) has blanked against the might of Wolves and Sheffield United in consecutive Gameweeks but perhaps there could be some belated, unexpected joy at a mind-elsewhere Manchester City, who have shipped eight goals in their last three matches.

James Rodriguez (£7.7m) missed out against Wolves, with Carlo Ancelotti explaining:

James is out because he was a little bit tired. He didn’t play, he was out, then he played against Sheffield, we prefer not to take a risk.

    Watkins to Bamford and play greenwood
    Greenwood to Harrison with kane / nacho up front

    Thanks and gl, I know I'll need it 🙂

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years

      I also have raphina and dallas

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Watkins to Bamford.
      Greenwood to Willock.

      Also find a way to play Nacho.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Canot do both, as to be one of the other

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Or the other

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Isn't there a chance that Greenwood will play?

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Yep that's why I'm undecided...;)

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Just wait for pressers. You might get some news. If Greenwood looks like playing, play him and Bamford.

  2. Sterling Archer
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    cant see many united players playing, my luke shaw replacements look guaranteed for 1 point,

    Bruno out for Harrison, or DCL for Bamford and captain a leeds player is the move im looking at

      Bruno to Mane, just keep it simple.

  4. Lord of Ings
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Bench DCL or digne?

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

      Digne

  5. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Bamford or Robertson this week?

    If we get news Greenwood is benched will get both for a hit.

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

      Bamford

    2. TB303
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Bamford

    3. Podge
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Bamford is captain material this week

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Agreed I think I have to get him in.

  6. Azathoth
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Who u think gonna have the biggest price rise/fall next season? Bamford and Sterling my guess.

    1. WHUFCSmith23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Auba and Mane will surely move down significantly. Bruno was incredibly only 10.5 at the start of this season.

  7. HVT
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Will Struijk start?

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

      Bielsa is very open in his press conferences, so I'd wait for that

    0.3m itb, 2ft. Bit lost on what to do with the 2 transfers

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      The most popular transfer is Bruno to Mane and downgrade elsewhere to fund it.

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

      Bruno to Mane
      Greenwood to Raph/Harrison

      1. RamboRN
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Whats the logic with getting rid of united assets? Wolves should be an easy game for them.

        1. John Nerdelbaum
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Small matter of a Europa League final 3 days after

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

          Very doubtful both will start, and even if they did, they won't be at full throttle as 2nd place is already guaranteed and they would also try to avoid getting injured for the Europa final.

          Both easy moves in my eyes.

          1. RamboRN
            • 10 Years
            4 months, 3 days ago

            I already have 3 Liverpool.

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

              Bruno/Greenwood to Raph/Harrison Vydra to Bamford then.

              1. RamboRN
                • 10 Years
                4 months, 3 days ago

                And then bench the other united player, greenwood/Bruno so can start Bamford?

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

                  Yup

  9. TB303
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Will Mandy and Rudiger both start ?

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Should

    2. TB303
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Thanks dark side !

  10. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Need help. Reached the final of my H2H league and have this team. What transfer do I make? Rival will use his BB and hence I will have to cover his 4 additional players. Cannot pick Raph and Greenwood, cannot take hits and cannot afford Mane.

    Pickford Forster
    TAA Rudiger Struijk Konsa Mitchell
    Salah Bruno Son Lingard El Ghazi
    Kane DCL Antonio

    Thanks a lot!

    1. TB303
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      I would get rid of Son or Dcl.
      Bamford will score well I think

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Not Bruno out? The general consensus here is that he will not play.

  11. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Gets harder to scale the heights.

    Last year had 2314 points & finished 35k

    This year sitting on 2294 & 193k!

    Chance of beating last years rank slim, should easily beat last years points.

    1. Louis Van Gaalstones
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Yeah I've already surpassed my score from last year (2359) - looking at getting 2400 points this year (2369 as it stands) but I'm just outside 50k, and last year was just outside 10k.

  12. merin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    How would you use this FT?
    I’m 19p behind the leader in my minileague, so I have to take some risk to win it.

    Dubravka Areola
    TAA Shaw Dallas Phillips Targett
    Salah Bruno Greenwood Lingard JWP
    Kane Antonio Bamford

    1 FT, 0.5 ITB, No chips left

    1. Return of the FF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Probably sell Bruno or Greenwood for a differential like Willock, and then maybe captain Bamford

      1. merin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Cheers! Captaining Bamford seems risky…

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  13. ralfb

    Possible to get from 12,299 into top 10k on last day ?

    1. Holmes

      yes

    2. JabariParkersEyelid

      Well yeah.

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years

      I am 100% sure it has been done before.

    4. Geriatric Unathletic

      • 10 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      I'm just inside 10K and taken a -8, so yep, you deffo have a chance. I jumped from 13k to 7.5K in gw 36 thanks purely to Mitchells 13 points off of the bench!

  14. kysersosa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    If you could have any keep who would you have this week?

    A) Allison
    B) Ederson
    C) Mesier
    D) other

    TIA

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Casilla

    2. Brimble82
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      I think Bielsa said that Casilla would play - so not Meslier.
      If you have a Liverpool slot free, I'd say Allison. They will be the most focused

  15. Whats the Mata?
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Is Watkins (CHE) or DCL (mci) to Antonio/Bamford worth a -4?

    Or would you just start one of Watkins or DCL?

    1. Bobby's Teeth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Watkins should be G2G - he is on a roll.

      DCL can be transferred out for either of the two that you mentioned, depends on the rest of your team.

    2. Brimble82
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      I'd hold Watkins.
      Villa are a different team with Jack back, so could get returns.
      DCL on the other hand... definite sell. Toss a coin for Toni or Bambam, both good options.

  16. Skogen89
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Im chasing in my ml and have this team atm:

    Martinez\ Areola

    Digne \ Phillips \ Lindelof \ Dawson \ Reguillon

    Salah \ Greenwood \ Bruno \ Foden \ Saka

    Kane \ Antonio \ DCL

    My only diferentials are Phillips, Reguillon, Lindelof, Fode, Bruno and Antonio

    What to do?

    a) Bruno and DCL > Mane and Wood (-4)
    B) Bruno > Mane
    C) Digne and DCL > Aguero and Robertson (he has TAA)
    D) Other?

  17. Bobby's Teeth
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Hey legends, somehow I still have my BB - how does this lot look for GW38?

    Martinez Areola
    TAA Rudiger Dallas Coufal Saiss
    Salah Son Greenwood Willock Lingard
    Kane Antonio Rodrigo

    1. Thinking of transferring out Saiss - any suggestions?
    2. Any other transfers that I should be considering?

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Saiss could do well against a weakened United side.

      1. Bobby's Teeth
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Any idea why he did not play this GW? My worry is about his start first and foremost.

  18. Ohh1454
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Is Alonso to risky to punt on ? Could Reece James be a better pick ?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Yes Reece is more nailed imo

    2. Brimble82
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Risky.... but oh so fun right!

  19. Mane Mane Mane
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Is Forster going to start this week

    1. Brimble82
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      That's the assumption. Hassenhutl has been pretty open in his PCs though, so wait on that.

  20. Return of the FF
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    A. Bruno to Salah
    B. Nacho to Bamford

    A all day isn't it

    1. John Nerdelbaum

      4 months, 3 days ago

      Easily

    2. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years

      Would definitely keep nacho against that spurs defence

    The penultimate Gameweek closes and before turning toward plans for the finale, tell us — how was your Gameweek 37?



    Did you manage to field 11 players? Did you use any chips? Were any of your players benched, or injured? Did your transfers pay off? How did your bench perform? Did your captain return?



    Share your tales of joy or woe, here:

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

      Really bad. Rank doubled.

    2. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Relatively happy. 51. All about ML, now 18 behind first and 18 above third so odds are I stay there. Antonio / Lingard goal was a blow as that gap to third would've been a more comfortable 30. Raph transfer and Salah cap was a disappointment but nice points from Rich, Digne and Gundo.

      Most nervous I've been all season!

    3. Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Smooth: Benched Iheanacho and Rudiger. But started Lacazette and Dunk instead.

      58 points and a 9th consecutive green arrow

    4. One Wheels Enough
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Benched Phillips and Lingard over Shaw and JWP...

    5. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Smooth: Owned Nat Phillips.
      Rough: Kane (c), no Bamford/Antonio in the team and Watkins and Gross on the bench.

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

      Could have saved me free transfer but felt the need to push on to make up ground so transferred out lingard for saint maximin. Completely backfired - could have been going intongw38 with 2FTs and a fully fit team, now I have 1FT to transfer out either ASM or a man utd player.

      Smooth- nat phillips! After Mitchell's 13 pointer last week as well, loving the ultra-budget defenders!

    7. FPLRaiser
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Rough - Watkins + Nacho both on my bench. Thought long and hard about a Jota replacement (Willock? Harrison? Foden? Greenwood?) only to bring in Bale for a 1 pointer.

      Smooth - Digne, Dallas and Trent cleans sheets. Bruno captaincy scoring marginally better than Kane/Salah. Late points for Antonio & Lingard taking me within 11 points off mini league lead and 5 points off my target rank.

    8. shirtless
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      55 points, moved up a touch.

      Rough: Last week played Soucek and benched Raphina, cost me four points. This week played Raphina, couldn't not at Soton, and benched Soucek...cost me five points! Salah(c) blank which was a real downer with Bruno and Kane also blanking. Switched Bruno back in for Mane, feel I got away with that one. Hokey-cokeying Mane back this week now.

      Smooth: Bamford, Keane, Antonio, Dallas, plus the jammy Bruno assist.

    9. shirtless
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Rough one for my 11 year old daughter, now at 952k in her first season.

      Switched Mings out for Stones, started Stones, Cancelo but benched Gundogan. Ouch! Could have gone the other way I guess with a clean sheet win but I did advise to bench one City def and have the other as cover. Ten point swing Cancelo vs Gundog! She still got 52 though.

    10. Van der Faart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      65(-4), could have been 76 but for the late Nacho goal. Also TCd Kane as needed a differential, knew rival would captain Salah and it fell flat on its face. Benched Lingard for his assist too.

      Rough; Power midfield of Salah, Bruno, Son & Raph only produced a 'ghost assist' between them. And DCL continues to stink up my team!

      Smooth; BB score of 92. 6/7 CSs. Bench of 24 and my first ever 3-digit GW rank (813). OR rank halved to just 2pts outside top 100k.
      Even managed to close a ML gap from 88pts in GW33, to just 9pts going into the final GW.
      So all-in-all, buzzing!

      Now, how to make the most of my two FTs...

    12. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Rough:
      Kane (C)
      Highest scoring player Trent with 6
      Rudiger and Phillips on bench
      37 all out, 54% rank drop

      Smooth:
      No hit

        Similar here,
        Rough: Bamford, Dallas, Rudiger on bench.Salah (c)
        Smooth: .........

    13. Levi's 501
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Rough week, 2nd lowest score of season with 36. Digne top scorer with 8.

    14. Bunk Moreland
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Rough: No goalkeeper played (Henderson/Forster). Captaincy blank.
      Smooth: Used my FT on el Ghazi (2) > Willock (11). Robertson (15) eventually rewarded my decision to go with him over Jota a few gameweeks back. With both being huge differentials, I had a very good gameweek in the end with 66 points. Entered the top 50k for the first time this season.

    15. 272MK
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Rough: Captained GW. Scared of Salah haul as everybody else captained him

      Smooth: Nope

    16. lugs
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Rough
      Kane(c) fail

      Smooth
      61pts so a decent week despite the captain fail, with my defense of Dubravka (who i had brought in for Martinez as my only transfer this week) Digne, Rudiger, & Trent all scoring points, along with Watkins, Mahrez & Lingard in attack, also benched Regullion as an extra bonus

    17. Joburger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Rough:
      4 players (Lloris, Lindelof, Son & DCL) with 2 pointers.
      1 player no show. Aguero as expected pre-deadline.

      Smooth:
      No hit taken.
      Willock transferred in and scored 11 points.
      Gamble of not having Salah or Bale paid off with Bruno captain outscoring them both.
      JLingz off the bench with an assist and bonus pts for Aguero.
      Differential pick of Robertson eventually paid off.
      72 points and finally into the top 50k after a long and difficult season. Hoping to cement a top 50k finish in the final GW now.

  22. Robson-Canoe
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Are Mount and Pulisic worth a punt this GW? Villa have nothing left to play for and Chelsea have to win to secure 3rd place.

  23. Do I Not Like Orange
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Chasing a 6pt lead. Should I captain Salah, or go for a differential? My main diffs are Dallas, TAA, Phillips, Antonio & Kane vs his Bamford, Nacho, JWP, Bruno & Coleman.

    1. Robson-Canoe
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Your differentials look better than his. I'd captain Salah and hope that your differentials do the job.

        Agree

    1. Whats the Mata?
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      How to know if a hit is justified in gw38?

      For eg: Is Watkins out for Antonio/Bamford worth a hit?

      What's the guarantee of getting 4 points or more

      1. J0E
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        I've taken hits before on the final day and I've never gained points. Broke even sometimes. Very hard week to predict.

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

        Contrary to Joe, I regularly take hits on the final day (and over the season in general) and it can work out, depending on who leaves.

        I took a 16 pointer a few seasons ago knowing full well that De Gea wasn’t playing, so brought in Romero, who kept a clean sheet.

        This year I’m without a keeper so I’m likely doing:

        Meslier to another keeper (Mendy maybe)
        Keane to Dallas
        Greenwood to Mane
        DCL to Rodrigo

    2. shirtless
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Switched Bruno back in for Mane after removing on wildcard for a one week punt last week. Feel I got away with that one. Captaincy numbers scared me! Hokey-cokeying Mane back this week now. Is he the best Bruno replacement? A good sword to go with the Salah(c) shield...

    3. FPL Notebook (John)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      What’s your preferred way of following the final day of matches?

      -Attempt to ignore the football then MOTD challenge?

      -Soccer Saturday/Radio 5 Live type goal updates programme?

      -Pick one match to watch then score updates elsewhere?

    4. Vertigo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      How far do you support the argument that Salah and Kane's teammates would sooner help them win the golden boot this weekend than shoot for goal themselves?

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Too much on the line for especially Liverpool to think about the potentiel Golden Boot for Salah.

    5. Lemongrab
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Double Liverpool defence (Trent and Robertson) or double midfield (Salah and Mane) for the final game?

      Also not a question but just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed the scoutcasts this season, thanks to everyone involved for some great content.

    6. Brimble82
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      In a season where many have struggled and the drip-feed of games has pushed the limits of our managerial patience... what do you find yourself more focused on going into GW38?
      - consolidating as good an OR as possible
      - or a last ditch roll of the dice to win/podium in MLs?

    7. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Antonio vs Bamford. Who is more important this week?

    8. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Best option as third Liverpool player alongside Salah and TAA- either Son to Mané or Digne to Robertson? Chasing down 6 point lead in ML and he has Salah TAA Firmino

    9. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      Are Spurs assets a don’t buy, don’t sell or is it wise to shift them out?

  25. John Nerdelbaum
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Watkins >
    a) Bamford
    b) Antonio

    1. The Knights Template

      B

    2. Traction Engine Foot

      B

    3. Lemongrab
      • 12 Years

      Antonio. Watch his post match interview from last night, he could be on pens too.

  26. Traction Engine Foot
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Greenwood, Digne to Mane, Allioski worth -4?

    1. Lemongrab
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      If you're confident that Greenwood doesn't start then yes. But I would wait to see what Ole says first.

  27. OLLY G
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Sell or start Bruno?

  28. diesel001
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    "Defense wins you championships"

    VVD the best last season. Laporte the season before. Dias this season.

    A top CB is a must if you want to win titles.

  29. Pukkipartyy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    Play Son or Greewood?

  30. One Wheels Enough
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 3 days ago

    After just benching Phillips and Lingard over Shaw and JWP and getting a 20K red arrow... I might need some advice on who to play this week out of:

    A) Shaw
    B) JWP
    C) DCL
