    On BB (simply because I couldn’t decide when to use it...)

    Any advice greatly appreciated

    Mendy Forster
    TAA Dallas Godfrey Rudiger Holding
    Salah Bruno ESR Zaha Greenwood
    Kane Antonio Davis

    Obvious move is to just sell Davis. Would you do anything else for a hit?

    1. Luton_Fan
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Zaha to torres/raphinha maybe

  2. Henryyy

    Good to go?

    Meslier (Foster)
    Dallas Holding TAA
    Mane Salah Raph Lingard
    Antonio DCL Kane

    JWP Shaw Holgate

    Thanks!!

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah like it.
      Could do a keeper for a hit but I don’t think any are worth it.

      Nice team! Maybe Holding to a Leeds defender?

      1. Henryyy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        3 Leeds unfortunately

      Yep. Like it!

        Thanks mate!

  3. Bleh

    Play Martinez (CHE) or Sanchez (ARS)?

    1. Keep Calm and Play On
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Close one that but I would bet on Chelsea scoring over Arsenal so probably Sanchez

    2. Hart-ake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Same dilemma here. Going Sanchez as Brighton are decent defensively and Chelsea surely score in that match.

    3. 3 A
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      San

  4. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    RP to get some more opinions. Best option here? Chasing a 9 point lead in my ML.

    A. Bruno > mane
    B. Bruno dcl > mane Antonio -4
    C. Castagne dcl > robbo Antonio -4

    3. Bleh
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      A or B depending on his twam

      1. Bleh

  5. Keep Calm and Play On

    • 5 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Evening all!

    Last decision of the season:
    1) Vydra to Antonio, play DCL and bench Bruno
    2) DCL and Bruno to Antonio and Mane

    Cheers all and Goodluck!

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam

        Nah sorry should have mentioned that, -4

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          1

    2. Bleh
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      2 I think, should pay off

    3. BERGKOP
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      I like 2

    4. JRO093
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      I like 2 but you could also do 1 and play Bruno over DCL in case he starts..?

  6. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    how many leeds players do you have? just did watkins to bamford which means I now have 3 with dallas and raphinha. really hope they live up to the hype v west brom!

    1. 3 A

  7. AppleDunk

    • 7 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Level on points at the top of my money league!

    Defenders are Coleman*, Dallas, TAA, Coady and Shaw who may not play.

    Is it worth a hit to do Coleman -> Rudiger?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      NO

      1. AppleDunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        So just play Coady?

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          i would

    2. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      You can move Coleman out, but not by Rudiger.

    3. Must.Go.Faster.

      Lowercase “no” for me

  8. Henryyy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    4 months, 1 day ago

    I have 616 captain points so far this season, and im ranked at 80k

    How is that even possible? Think its the most C points i ever had but its my worst season....

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      one man team 🙂

      1. Henryyy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        spot on!

        My other players have been good at dodging points....

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Unusually high number of DGWs, you've essentially had 8 potential extra fixtures for your captain with 6 DGWs and a TGW.

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      How can you find your captains total points ?

      70k and 520 for my captain .... What could have been 🙂

  9. yanky

    4 months, 1 day ago

    DCL > Antonio worth -4 pt hit?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      not for me

    2. Knock Down Your Aerial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Yes

  10. Hits from the Bong

    4 months, 1 day ago

    DCL and Bale to Bamford and Rap

    1. Hits from the Bong

      Fail

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam

      B

    2. Hart-ake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Probably B

      1. akhilrajau
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Thank you all. I am also thinking on that

    3. JRO093
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      B

  12. SomeoneKnows
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Raphinha or Harrison and why?

    1. BERGKOP
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Harrison. He's actually capable of delivering some double digit returns albeit very rarely. Raph ticks over with assists but hasn't set the world alight fantasy-wise. Don't get the love.

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

        This

  13. JAYPEE
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Son and Coady to Mane and a 4.1 DEF for a -4?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      not for me. spurs game will have loads of goals I think, son could do well.

  14. niloh1
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Thoughts on aguero?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      tempting but i wouldnt unless you have absolutely nothing to play for

    2. BIG TONES
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      I abandoned the idea due to lack of game time/match fitness.

  15. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Martinez
    TAA phillips dallas
    salah (c) bruno raphinha lingard
    kane nacho bamford

    areola greenwood lowton godfrey

    1ft 0.3 itb

    bruno to auba the most obvious move isnt it?

    1. niloh1
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      What about mane?

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        i have 3 pool players already unfortunately

    2. Hart-ake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      alternatively Pulisic?

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        mmh reckon he ll start? thanks

        1. Hart-ake
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          I do with Haven't a doubt. Should be Pulisic on the left and Werner up top. Villa weak down the right as well. Bit of a punt admittedly but not feeling Auba at Brighton tbh.

          1. Hart-ake
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Havertz a doubt that should be!

  16. Hart-ake
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Which one:

    a) DCL to Bamford (bench Jota)
    b) Jota and Son to Willock and Mane (bench DCL) (-4)

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      a

    2. hshepherd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 1 day ago

      A

    3. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Both are sound
      Wilock can cover the -4 seeing as Jota isn’t playing so if you think mane outscores son then go for it

      1. Hart-ake
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        it's really Willock vs DCL though who I would otherwise be playing.

        cheers though. With the price changes, probably have to go down to Smith Rowe now anyway...

    4. Hart-ake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      And I'm priced out of b with the changes, ha. A is the sensible move anyhow...

  17. hshepherd
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Thoughts on these moves? Was originally planning B, but A could have higher upside if Bruno is rested. Could take a hit for C, but no obvious defenders to bring in for a -4

    A) Bruno >>> Mane
    B) Digne >>> Robertson
    C) Bruno + Digne >>> Mane + DEF(?) -4

    Mendy
    TAA Dallas Digne(*)
    Salah Lingard Rahpinha Greenwood Bruno(*)
    Kane Antonio
    Forster Strujik Coady Davis

    1. 3 A
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      A or C with Coufal

    2. Hart-ake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      I think. you just go A and play Digne. Not worth the hit. Shame Strujik is unlikely to play.

      1. hshepherd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Cheers, that's what I'm currently thinking too!

  18. 3 A
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Another two price changes.

  19. niloh1
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Who’s the best 8.5m mid?

    1. The White Pele
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      leeds player.

  20. BIG TONES
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Rate my two transfers that I just did?

    Bruno & DCL > Kane (c) & Torres

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Don’t mind losing those 2 but quite risky the other 2

      1. BIG TONES
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Love a final day punt haha (Torres), but as for Kane, he will be playing for the golden boot vs a Leicester team who need to win, so thinking that will be an open game. Hopefully that's how it works out!

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Can see the logic.
          I’m looking to sell Bale for Mane but depends if Greenwood plays as I need the funds for a downgrade

          1. BIG TONES
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Mane is a good shout, he was playing central in the last match. Greenwood is by no means guaranteed as a starter, could downgrade to someone like Willock to free up funds if money is an issue

    2. Must.Go.Faster.
      4 months, 1 day ago

      PG 13

  21. Johan Queef
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 1 day ago

    Mendy

    TAA, Dallas, *Shaw (Holding, Coady)

    Salah, *Bale, *Greenwood, Raphinha, JWP

    Kane, Antonio (Iheanacho)

    Only 1FT and concerned about players starting.

    Who is the priority to sell? Only have 1FT

    A) Bale
    B) Greenwood

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Would start Nacho over JWP
      Any money to upgrade Bale?

      1. Johan Queef
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah I may well do after benching his points last week. I have 0.9ITB so can't stretch too far. I could maybe punt on a Chelsea mid but not sure where else I could go.

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Depends on situation with mini league etc
          I would actually punt on someone like Pepe

          1. Johan Queef
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            I actually just spotted Pepe and considered this too. Tbf, it's my worst season I can remember and there's not a lot to play for aside from maybe a few quid in a money league if I rise one place. Thanks for the advice!

            1. HMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              Similar to me.
              Had a shocking final 6 weeks so tempted to take -12 and build a team I think scores well for fun

              1. Johan Queef
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years

                "make fantasy fun again" as they say

                1. HMC
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  4 months, 1 day ago

                  That’s it!

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              My heart is saying Bale/DCL ->Kun/Pepe

              But my head is saying ->Antonio/Mane

              1. Johan Queef
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                4 months, 1 day ago

                Option 2 looks better but I certainly see the fun in number 1!

    First players in your team for next season??

    Double LIV defence, whoever is up front for City, and Teemu Pukki for me!

    2. 3 A
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Waiting for fixtures first.

      Salah, Kane , Trent, Justin most likely

      1. Hart-ake
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 1 day ago

        likely price for Justin?

        1. BIG TONES
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          5.5 I reckon

    3. TKC07
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      4.0 second GK

    4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 1 day ago

      Krul, TAA, Bruno, Salah - reluctantly Kane if he’s at city...

      Probably Bamford & Watkins if they’re 7.5 or less

      Grealish if he’s 8.0 or less

      Keeping an eye on Antonio & Nacho prices along with Raphinia & Harrison
