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.

    ASM & DCL to Lingard & Iheanacho for free?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Would prefer Raphinha & Bamford/Antonio if you don't already own them.

    2. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Timing these top pages!! I like the moves but also agree with karan14 that bamford/Antonio and raphinha is worth considering

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Thanks both yes not on purpose I promise!
        I already have Raphinha, if I get Bamford/Antonio it leaves me 6.3/6.4 for a mid

  2. Mcgugan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Considering a -4 of:

    Fernandes > Salah
    Robbo > Dallas.

    Feels like a no brainer to captain Salah?

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I don't hate it.

    2. Mighty Wings
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Why would you sell Robbo, let alone for a hit?

      I'm thinking of getting him in for Digne. There must be another way to get Dallas if you think he's worth it for a hit...

      1. JabariParkersEyelid
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Well the hit is to get Salah and captain him? Presumably he has to free up a Pool spot to do so.

        1. Mighty Wings
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          I don't think he has 3 Pool spots occupied without having Mo...

          1. Mcgugan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Exactly.

            I have TAA, Phillips and Robbo. I don't want to sell any but obviously then can't get Salah. Alternative move is Fernandes to a city mid and just hope Salah blanks and triple defence is as good as last night!

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Why Robbo -> Dallas?

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        3 pool already, probs

      2. Mcgugan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Triple Liv defence. Its about getting Salah, Robbo to Dallas funds the move.

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Ok then.

  3. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Imagine if someone told you at the start of the season Bamford would be second highest points scoring striker :O

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      He was ridiculed a bit on here at start of season!

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Yes in that first game vs pool when he scored people joking about him maybe being a bit of a bandwagon.
        It’s amazing looking back in hindsight how many surprises there always is

  4. drughi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Is this 12 point hit crazy ?

    DCL, Digne, Son and Bale > Antonio, Dallas, Mane and Raphinha

    1. Brehmeren
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Yes

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Leicester-Spurs could be a basketball score. Both teams need loads of goals and a win.

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Spurs looked like they don't have any fight left in them.

      2. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        spurs were so bad against villa, that has put me off a bit

    3. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Spurs v Leicester could be a goal fest

    4. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      There is definitely some huge upside.

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        it is isnt it

    5. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Think you’ll struggle to make the hit up to be honest. Presume you can’t do dcl and bale to Antonio and mane for -4?

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        no I cant

    6. Mighty Wings
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Each considered individually, I would say go for it.

      But for -12, no way

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        this for me

      2. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        cheers, will do digne >dallas that I know then I will consider if the rest is worth doing

    Martinez

    Schmeichel DCL Webster KWP

    a) DCL + Bruno > Bamford/Wood + Mane (c) -4
    b) Bruno > Mane
    c) Suggestions welcome

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years

      A or B with Bamford are good moves

      1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Thanks a lot of people own bamford tho is only problem so theres no gain

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          You are already going differential with the Mane (c). Don't steer too far away from the template.

          1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Thanks dude

    2. Mcgugan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I think B is a no brainer. Don't need Bamford with the rest of your starters so wouldn't spend 4 points on him. Has to score just to pay you back.

      1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Thanks would you still captain mane or look elsewhere if he isn't for a hit

        1. Mcgugan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Depends how different your team is to ML rival. 8 points isn't much to catch if you teams are different, but if very similar then captaining Mane over Salah makes sense

  7. Rex Lapis
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Bruno to Mane
    Or
    DCL to Bamford?

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Have a very similar one below haha. I'm leaning to the Bruno move, at least DCL will definitely play.

    2. POTATO
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      option 1 if you think Bruno isn't starting.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Bamford has the form, Mane the differential

  8. JabariParkersEyelid
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Best move here? Not taking a hit and probably going with 10 men with continued keeper troubles.

    Forster
    Trent Rudiger Lowton
    Bruno Salah Raphinha Lingard
    DCL Kane Antonio

    Meslier Shaw El Goalzi Digne

    A. Shaw to Dallas
    B. Bruno to Mane
    C. DCL to Bamford

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Prefer B or C. Don't think Leeds will keep a CS

  9. Tonyawesome69
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Only a 5pt lead in ML, I'm trying to decide how to use my 1FT.

    What would you do with team 1 with 1FT vs team 2 with 2FT

    *common player between the 2 teams

    1FT 3.2ITB
    Mendy* Forster
    TAA* Dallas* Rudiger Shaw Holding
    Salah* Bruno* Lingard* Raphinha Greenwood
    Kane* Antonio Davis

    2FT 0ITB
    Mendy* Pickford
    TAA* Dallas* Coleman AWB Mitchell
    Salah* Bruno* Lingard* Son Jota
    Kane* Nacho Bamford

    1. Ohh1454
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      If I was you Davis > bamford

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah that's the defensive play. The attacking move that I'm thinking of is Bruno to Mane. Do you think both moves is worth a hit or still lean towards Bamford as the only transfer?

        1. Ohh1454
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Mane has a super record vs Palace so it could pay off. Liverpool haven’t been free scoring lately but they’ll be well up for Sunday with fans back and what’s at stake. Hard to sit back and accept a Bruno one pointer

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            If I do the Bamford move only, Bruno will go on my bench

            1. Ohh1454
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Greenwood play is it ?

              1. Tonyawesome69
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                I'm currently starting him. I think he starts in 38 and bench for the final

    2. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Team 1
      Bruno > Mane

      Team 2
      Coleman + Jota > Chilwell/Azpi + Raph/Harrison

      Or instead of the coleman transfer Bruno > Mane

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah he'll need to downgrade somewhere in order to afford Bruno to Mane. If he does the 2 mids transfer, he will struggle to pick 7/8 attackers

    3. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      In your position would sell Bruno. Him and Greenwood is too risky.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Bruno to Mane and/or Davis to Bamford are the two moves I'm thinking about

        1. Pep bites Kun
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          It's tight alright. Both good moves. I reckon I'd go both for the hit

  10. Ohh1454
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    So basically it comes down to
    A. Shaw to R.James
    B. Siggy to Raph
    I don’t think think shaw will play so Targett would be coming in for him. If ASM isn’t fit then Siggy would be playing if I do the defensive switch

    1. More Cowbell
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Would you transfer out DCL or Greenwood this GW given the choice?

      1. Ohh1454
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Greenwood

    2. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      B has more upside, would just play Targett.

      1. Ohh1454
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Ya that’s what I was thinking. I’d have funds to do targett > robbo for a hit but hardly worth it is it

        1. JabariParkersEyelid
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 17 days ago

          I don't think hits for defenders are worth it at this point.

          However Robbo is a special case and I'd be sorely tempted.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Prefer B. Do you have enough funds for Chilwell?

      1. Ohh1454
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Yes

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Chilwell would be an interesting pick over James

          1. Ohh1454
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Just worried Alonso may play

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Will he though? I think Chilwell is the clear #1 LWB and Chelsea still need to win to secure top 4

  11. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2 months, 17 days ago

    That late Antonio goal was a devastating blow. 7pt goal for him and a 5pt assist for Lingard. Its hard but sometimes you have to try and focus on the positives. For me personally I decided to bench Lingard to play Holding but then at the last minute I switched out Holding for Phillips. So Lingard's points were still benched but at least I had Phillips in my 11 instead of Holding.

    1. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Nice one! Are you playing Phillips this week?

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Home to Palace? For sure!

  12. Pep bites Kun
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Should have played double Liv def this week - the agony!! (played it the last few weeks, but it would have meant dropping Shaw or Digne - oh well - move on.

    2 FT this week - recommendations?

    Martinez
    TAA Phillips Azpi
    Salah Raphinha Lingard Zaha
    Kane Bamford Antonio

    Bench: Forster Shaw Smith-Rowe Digne

    Digne > Dallas?
    Zaha > Is Willock the obvious choice?

  13. MIGHTY JOE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Honestly cant remember a GW going as bad as this one in such a crucial stage.

    Antonio/Lingard goal at the end absolutely wrecked me, Pool & Everton CS to seal the deal. Godfrey/Rudiger on the bench. Went from fighting for 1.st in ML to have 3.rd place breathing down my neck

    Both teams on same point, which team do you think can win?

    Team A: Lowton, Raphinha, Lingard, Antonio

    Team B: Alisoki, Harrison, Willock, Mane

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      A

    2. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I prefer A, but that's probably because I have all 4 of them.

    3. Mcgugan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Prefer A but especially if A can switch Lowton out

    Willock's stats are insane.

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Scoring with every shot?

      1. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Not at all. He's one of the top players for XGI/90 in the league!

        1. Baines on Toast...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          He's actually relatively level with his XG so this isn't a case of being extremely clinical - he's just getting great chances.

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            He must be massively outperforming his XG?

    2. antis0cial
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Will he be fit / start 38 though?

      1. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Bruce suggests just fatigued...

  16. Bonus magnet

    already have antonio, which combo

    1. pepe+bamford
    2.raphinha + wood
    3. pulisic+bamford

    Bruno
    a. keep
    b. sell for Mane (-4)

    1. antis0cial

    36 points with 31 on the bench all out in GW37.

    What a disaster. However, hilariously, I won in my H2H league 36-22 and I'm now top going into the final week with 100 quid up top. Luck of the gods this season in that H2H league. Every time I have a mare somehow I get matched with a dead team captaining Stones haha.

    1. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I've been the opposite. I'm 4kOR and I'm trailing 8 pts behind H2H leader ranked... 68k.

  20. Pegboy
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Meslier (Martinez)
    TAA Dallas Phillips (Veltman Ward)
    Bruno Lingard Son Greenwood (Jota)
    Kane Antonio Watkins

    2FT £0.8

    Pretty sure I'm doing Bruno + Jota > Salah(c) + Mid up to £6m

    a) Raphinha
    b) Harrison
    c) Smith-Rowe
    d) Someone/Something else?

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Maybe d) Willock?

    2. antis0cial
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      A

    3. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Raphinha the no brainer pick here.

  21. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Anyone else jumping on Mane (c) ?

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      V. good option

  22. antis0cial
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    A) Digne + Jota to Robbo + 6.9 (Lingard?)
    B) Jota, Greenwood, DCL to Mane, Willock, Nacho (-4)
    C) Son + Jota to Mane + Willock (up to 5.9)

    Areola
    TAA Dallas Coufal
    Salah Son Greenwood Raph
    Kane Antonio DCL

    Meslier Jota Lowton Digne

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      If you're chasing and looking for a lot of upside, I'd go B/ But safe pick is probably A with Lingard.

  23. Fernandito
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Want triple Liverpool for final GW
    Have Salah &Trent so which one between Mane & Robertson?

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Mane for me.

    2. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Mane

    3. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      tough one. assuming it is part of a double transfer, so who else do you get on each one?

    4. Mcgugan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Robbo unless you are doing Fernandes to Mane which is the obvious move

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        +1

  24. The Mighty Whites
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Best one win punt for max 10.2 midfielder?

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Lingard or raphinha

      1. The Mighty Whites
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Got Lingard and already got 3 Leeds haha

    2. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Pepe?

      1. The Mighty Whites
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        I was thinking Pepe, any idea why he didn't play v Chelsea?

        1. Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Nope. Definitely check with an Arsenal fan what the state of play is, but he seems to have the most upside.

  25. gellinmagellan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Why are people so interested in Mane? He's been missing so many chances

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Lack of decent options in that price bracket. Think he’s still a great option if you have the cash but not sure he’s that much better than raphinha for example

      1. gellinmagellan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Fair enough. Would you suggest Son > Mane?

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Depends on team but I’d expect mane to score more than son this week

    2. Swissbob
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Law of averages says with that many chances he’s going to come good one of these days

    3. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I think he'll come good with the fans back.

  26. Tinmen
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Folks, is this ok to do? 2ft

    Kane and Mahrez to
    Bamford and Mane

    1. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I wouldn't sell Kane when he's looking for the golden boot.

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Then why did he seem disinterested vs Villa?

        1. Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Eh? Disinterested? We were shite and he was having to drop into midfield to pick up the ball because Mason didn't pick a player (N'Dombele) that could progress it.

          There's an argument not to captain him because our form is iffy (though I'd argue it's high variance rather than bad), but not because Kane isn't interested.

  27. focaccia
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Chasing a 20 point lead so need serious differential. Thinking AWB & DCL > Robbo & Antonio (C) for a hit.

    Team at the moment is:

    Martinez
    Rudiger - Dallas - TAA
    Salah - Lingard - Son - Raphina
    Kane - DCL - Bamford

    (Forster - Greenwood - AWB - Veltman)

    Or do I save the -4 and just do DCL to Antonio?

    1. gellinmagellan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I am a bit iffy about hits in the last GW unless you have nothing to lose anywhere. So I would go for DCL > Antonio

    2. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Depends a bit on how different your two teams are, but that's a big enough gap already without making it 24 points.

      Does you opponent have Kane? If not, captain him. Otherwise Antonio makes sense.

    3. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Just DCL to Antonio.

      Your defence is already very good for this week.

  28. Lord Flashheart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    more likely to start gw38:

    A rashford
    B greenwood

    ?

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Both should start. Greenwood more likely to start uptop

      1. Lord Flashheart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        cheers

  29. No Professionals
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Areola
    TAA Dallas Dunk Shaw
    Salah Bale Lingard Raphinha
    Kane Iheanacho

    Martinez Watkins Digne JWP
    1FT 1.6m

    tight in my ML, 19 points separates top 3.

    A) Attacking - Bale and JWP to Mane and Willock
    B) Cautious - Digne and Watkins to Robertson and Antonio (guy behind me has double pool defence and Antonio) - bench Dunk and Shaw

  30. gellinmagellan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Mendy Forster
    Coleman TAA Rudiger Holding Shaw
    Salah Raph Son Lingard Bruno
    DCL Bamford Vydra

    1 FT 3.3 ITB

    A) Vydra > Antonio
    B) Son > Mane
    C) DCL > Vardy
    D) DCL > Antonio, Son > Mane for -4
