    Can any of these teams potentially keep 15+ clean sheets?

    1. Everton
    2. Arsenal
    3. West Ham
    4. Villa
    5. Spurs
    6. Wolves

      Yes Arsenal maybe if they sign the proper defenders. And possibly Spurs with Nuno magic.

    2. Jebiga

      everton, arsenal and spurs. maybe wolves

      Doubt it, fancy less cleanies with bigger crowds shouting. Will look out for possible cheap defenders like Eric Dier (4.5m) if he gets a run in the team.

      No

      That's a very tough ask.

      Everton - they could do with Benitez there - They also have the personnel to play his 3 big physically dominant/set piece dominant centre backs if he wants with 3 of Mina, Keane, Godfrey & Holgate

      Arsenal - maybe if White comes in and Arteta doesn’t rotate as much (no Europe will help with that)

      West Ham - maybe, but very thin squad with European commitments too, probably doubtful

      Villa - they’ve already done it, but needed soooo much luck so I couldn’t see it, but certainly 10+ looks doable

      Spurs - can’t see it - Fans really don’t like defensive football, and their centrebacks haven’t looked too hot either, Dier, Rodon etc - maybe Nuno coming in & playing 5-3-2 helps… but the fans will hate his football even more than José & it could just be a big mess

      Wolves - no idea, heard anecdotally that the new guy is more attacking than defensive… but all those years of Nuno’s defensive coaching won’t wear off overnight, so they should still be pretty solid

      It’s hard to say. Spurs, Everton and Wolves all with new managers. Will be intresting to see how they set up in the friendlies.

    8. Astronautovic
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Tierney at 5.0 could be a steal

  2. Lignja
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    How is this looking?

    Sanchez, 4.0
    Taa, Shaw, Dias, 4.0, 4.0
    Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Raphina, 4.5
    Dcl, Antonio, Deeney

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Arise, Sir Lignja!

    2. Astronautovic
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I think i would take Sarr over Deeney. Just because of the pace of Sarr.
      The rest looks great.

    3. Lignja
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Thanks boys, Sarr is 6.0 and Deeney is 5.5 so maybe if i downgrade Taa to Robertson, dont think ill do that atm

    Trying out the mid-pricers

    Martínez Steer
    Digne Cresswell Shaw Lamptey Ayling
    Mount Grealish Mahrez Rashford Raphinha
    Wood Iheanacho Calvert-Lewin

    1. The Knights Template

      Could work. How much $$$ left?

      1. baggs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        2m
        Not enough to go up to KDB or salah in one transfer.
        Too many from the euros, I prob won’t have anyone who gets past this round.

    2. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      you dont need 8 mid/fwds as 1 must be benched. unless this is a ghost team and then its ok

    3. Puncheon Guly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I looked at something similar, then those coveting glances across at Fernandes, Kane (assuming he goes to City), Salah becoming irresistible.

      No Liverpool here either, think you need Jota

    4. Indpush
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Keep an eye on Rashford. He may elect to get his shoulder operated on after Euros.

    Ok, who to captain out of Ronaldo, Depay, KDB, Dumfries? My captain choices over this competition have been shocking

    1. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Dumfries. Then tits up give to CR7

      1. St Pauli Walnuts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Play same day

    2. baggs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Got to be Ronnie

    3. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Same problem here, think it's between CR7 and Depay for me just not sure who

  5. vincentwsho

    Repost

    Who to cap today?

    A) Wijn
    B) Depay
    C) Dumfries
    D) KDB
    E) Lukaku

    1. Sterling Archer
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Depay looks sharp and probs playing the worst team left in the comp.

      But ppl overlooking the Belgium game to easily, could easily b a goal fest. Kdb a good shout

    2. The Tinkerman
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Probably B, Portugal game is too close to call

    3. Astronautovic
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Depay. On Penalties, FK and corners. He should do fine.

      1. Puncheon Guly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        This

    4. Indpush
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      B

  6. jayzico
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Dumfries(c) anyone?

  7. Astronautovic
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Digne at 5.5 with those fixtures has to be an auto pick.

    1. baggs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Not getting too many mins at the euros but how Everton will play who knows

      1. Astronautovic
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Will be interesting to see how they line up. If they play three at the back with wingbacks then digne should be great.

    2. Guba
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I feel he's overhyped personally, 120 points last two seasons isn't anything special. They just can't keep clean sheets. Maybe with the new manager it will improve but I think I'll start without myself.

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I agree with this, I don't understand the hype around him considering the price and the fact you're basically relying on assists

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Rose tinted glasses from his hauls from 2-3 years ago, like the brace at Burnley

    3. Astronautovic
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Thanks all of you for your input. I still think i will put him in my team. But i will monitor the pre season closely.

      1. Astronautovic
        • 5 Years

        follow*

  8. Astronautovic
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Will TAA be back for the start of the season?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Is there any reason he wouldn't be?

      1. Astronautovic
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I just know that he picked up an injury which kept him out for the euros. Is the injury serious or is he already fine again?

  9. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    According to the FPL website, the highest owned players in each position at the minute are:

    Martinez
    TAA, Shaw, Fofana
    Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Raphinha
    DCL, Watkins, Toney

    With cheap subs it actually works out at 101.0 (due to Martinez instead of a 4.5)

    These are pretty much the guys who will hurt if they smash early doors

    Digne instead of Shaw & I must say I like it a lot - would be nice to get a proven striker instead of Toney, but he’s a good punt in fairness

    1. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      solid team - Grealish & Bruno make good cash cows for whatever game breaking option emerges this year (think it will be Havertz but who knows...)

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I agree, milk Bruno!

        1. Milkman Bruno
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Excuse me?

          1. DannyDrinkVodka
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            We can all help you!

            1. Milkman Bruno
              2 months, 29 days ago

              😯

    2. Astronautovic
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      That team looks fine to me. Interesting to see that so many people choose Toney or is it because of auto pick teams?

    3. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Looks a bit like the FFS template

    4. CAVEAT KING
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Are any of these below 30%?

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Yeah TAA, Fofana, Raph & DCL are all high 20’s rather than 30+

        Still early days though I suppose, not even 1million teams yet & there’ll probably be close to 10m by GW1

        1. CAVEAT KING
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          All i can say is keep clear of Everton, no matter the fixtures. Fofana a mistake in pricing but I don't see me going for a CB with little attacking potential. TAA and Raph will be close to 50% at the start and when all the auto picks are cleared IMO

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Went for Digne and Keane late season because of the fixtures and that worked out excellently. Those punting on DCL at the start of the season because of fixtures killed it. Everton are fine.

            1. CAVEAT KING
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 29 days ago

              Everton not the same as last season. No manager atm. No support for DCL. I like Digne but I am one of the few who think he was priced right. Everton are not great against "average" teams. A wait and see for me. Consider my Grav.

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 29 days ago

                They could well be better if they bring in a disciplinarian like Benitez.

                1. CAVEAT KING
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 7 Years
                  2 months, 29 days ago

                  Some bad vibes there mate

                  1. Flair
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year
                    2 months, 29 days ago

                    True, forgot Everton fans hated him haha. Winning tends to cure a lot of ills though.

          2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            I get the fans angst, and that could create a bad atmosphere (both home and away) but if Rafa’s in charge we know we’ll get defensive solidity though, hence Digne looks a no brainer to me

            DCL has the fixtures, and worst case is a placeholder for Bamford or whichever 7.5 forward starts smashing early doors

            I’d honestly even be tempted by Siggy as 4th mid depending on what we see from Rafa in pre season

            So Everton will no doubt crash & burn & be bottom by GW6 😆

            Hopefully Jrod decks off to somewhere warmer so Digne can get more set pieces, and Siggy has one less body in his way

    5. Ben White saved my life
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Too many Villa assets imo. High ownership is worth watching alright. I'll probably try to shoehorn in Man City's peno taker whenever that becomes known.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I think Martinez has to go for a 4.5 anyways to get it under the 100m mark

        Grealish & Watkins I’d actually be ok-ish with starting though, although it may be a bit too much as you say, one is probably enough

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

        That's my gut feeling too, but Watkins and Martinez had really good seasons last year so I'm also finding it hard to convincingly answer "why not?". Tempted by Buendia rather than Grealish too.

    6. POTATO
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I get that Toney is worth a punt, but if he doesn't work out what is the backup plan. Replace him with bench fodder and spend more on a 5th mid or fourth defender? It'll eat up two transfers assuming you don't waste the WC early

      1. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I suppose the back up plan would be either Pukki when the fixtures turn, or someone like Tammy Abraham will emerge if he gets a transfer

        1. POTATO
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Although Pukki helped me to a great start two seasons ago, I don't see him as an option based on his performance over that season with Norwich. I figure I need £7.5M for a third fwd or else only have two forwards.

          1. Milkman Bruno
            2 months, 29 days ago

            You would have to give Toney a few games before you consider him a flop though. I would think what you have mentioned is the likely escape route, downgrading to a 4.5 and upgrading 5th mid to the mid price player that has hit the ground running. Buendia for example.

      2. FPL Joker
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Maupay?

      3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Yeah you’re looking at the likes of Pukki, Benteke, Maupay… it’s not the deepest pool of talent at that price

        Tammy might get a move he’s 6.5, as is Rodrigo at Leeds

        ASM, Wellbeck…

        They’re all pretty sketchy picks at the best of times though

    7. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Thing is, if I had that exact team, then I’d find very little satisfaction and would bore myself. You can’t have an amazing start if you pick that team.

      Although it does look good, the satisfaction in FPL comes when something you do, that no one else is doing, pays off.

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        That said though, it’s hard to look elsewhere other than Man City and maybe Arsenal, for differential assets to start with.

      2. FPL Joker
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Well I’m guessing triple Liverpool and Chelsea is the best at to start due to fixtures. Anyone else?

        1. POTATO
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 29 days ago

          If Chelsea then you need an okay bench.

        2. Zim0
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Don't Chelsea face Villarreal 3 days before Crystal Palace. Full on rotation right from the start. I'm not gonna be risking any Chelsea assets to start with until I know Tuchel won't rotate anymore.

        3. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Triple Liverpool. Maybe one Chelsea.

          Man City is the team that could cause damage too. But if Kane goes there, everyone will have him.

      3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Same

        But coincidentally I I was very set on TAA, Salah, Bruno, Raphinia, Grealish & Watkins when thinking about the game after last season finished

        And they’ve all been more or less feasibly priced & have decent fixtures too

        The guys I’d want but that aren’t there are more the Nachos, Antonio’s, Wilson’s, Bamford’s etc

      4. H.E. Pennypacker
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 29 days ago

        exactly, I wanna enjoy this season. I looked at too many experts last season and it was my worst

        1. Flynny
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          I don't think my opening team will be too far from this.

          4.5m keeper

          Wither dias or robbo at the back with TAA

          Grealish will probably be a cheaper option

          I think cavani could be good option for opening games before Europe kicks in...

  10. Wild Guus Chase

    I might be late in saying but Perisic has tested positive for Coronavirus and is out of Croatia's game with Spain. Wishing him well.

      Great username

  11. Dr. Rog

    Captain:

    A) KdB
    B) Depay
    C) Dumfries

    1. ash and swanson inc

      2 months, 29 days ago

      I am in similar circumstance (but with lukaku and Wij as well) and am leaning towards dumfries for potential and depay to be boring! portugal do seem to concede for fun though so tough decision today. Hoping you get some insightful responses!

      1. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        im tempted to make my captain chain Dumfries - Alba - Forsberg on the basis that those attacking defenders can get massive scores

        1. ash and swanson inc
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          three chances surely worth a gamble, I have kimpebe, torres and forsberg but I feel today could be the big day for points - if you hit the right one...

  12. DannyDrinkVodka

    CR7, automatic cap today?

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Gotta be either him or Depay I think, guess it depends on your ML rivals and that, can't split the two myself

  13. Dr. Rog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    A Kane team (actually covers Salahs captaincy very well)

    Sanchez 4
    TAA Digne Lamp/Ayling 4
    Salah Kai Rafa ESR 4.5
    Kane DCL Watkins

    Lamp/Ayling rotate, but also both play to cover ESR 2&3

    1. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Looks very nice. Would you still be tempted by Kane if he stayed at Spurs?

      1. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        244pts at spu*s so cant be a bad option there... at City he would be essential assuming he is nailed

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I’d be more tempted if he stayed at Spurs, less so if he moved

        1. Qaiss

          Why is that? At City, he's nailed to start near enough every game and being fed by a class team. Can see him scoring 25-30 if he goes there.

          At Spurs, if they score, he's likely involved but Spurs are a proper mess at the moment.

      ripping up the template further... lets shun Everton as they always have great starting fixtures and mostly flatter to deceive. their pricing is quite rich compared to the likes of Arsenal/Spu*s as well who are arguably better side

      Sanchez 4
      TAA Robbo Lamp/Ayling 4
      Salah Kai Rafa ESR 4.5
      Kane Watkins Toney

      1. Milkman Bruno

        Does look nice. Struggling to go Kane over Bruno unless he makes a move though.

      2. Milkman Bruno
        2 months, 29 days ago

        If you go 5x 4.5s in defence you can get all 3 handy enough. Just means no Taa/VVD/Robbo and they can hurt

    Cannot wait for Maupay to outscore Toney in the first 6

    1. Milkman Bruno
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Very possible. Trossard @6.5 could do well

    Anyone starting the season with Pepe?

    1. Rock n Grohl

      Yeah he's in mine at the moment. If he can stay rotation free, think he's an under the radar great option.

    I have a template draft at the moment I think but liking it so far.

    Sanchez/Steele
    TAA, VVD, Lamptey, Fofana, Sierralta
    Salah, Bruno, Barnes, Raphina, 4.5
    Watkins, Antonio, Toney

    1. Flair

      Nice side. I'd prefer Digne + Shaw over VVD + Fofana. Bonus, attacking threat, like both of them.

      1. Milkman Bruno
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Thanks! It’s tough, I had both Shaw and Digne along with VVD and a fodder 4.5 striker but decided to try and upgrade to Toney.

    I think I’ve done a bad.
    I’ve got a gameday 3 player on the bench, and a gameday 4 player starting.
    As it’s only gameday 2, can I sub in my gameday 3 player - & sub him back off if he blanks ?

      Yes. You can sub on and sub off players that didnt play as much as you like but once you sub off player that played he is locked on bench.

      For example you can sub off Forsberg today for Kimpembe and tomorrow sub off Kimpembe to Forsberg if he Kimp blanks

        Thanks - you made that much clearer than the wording on the website.

    Pretty happy with this so far

    Mellier
    James - Shaw - TAA - Tierney - 4.0
    Salah - Saka - KDB - Havertz - Bissouma
    Watkins - Nancho - Davis

    A)KDB
    B)Depay
    C)Dumfries
    D)Wijnaldum

    Cheers

      That depends on your position in your league. Since I am chasing I am going with KDB as captain as a differential. Depay is the obvious one who everyone will choose so if you wanna live up to the username ”Balls of steel” then go for KDB. He is the best midfielder in the world playing against a not too strong Portugal defence…

    Morning all!! Can anyone explain what the difference between the overall rank and the neutral ranks on this Euro Fantasy Football???
    Cheers folks!!!

      I have overall rank and a country rank for the country I chose. I’m guessing you didn’t choose a country and are in a league of ‘neutrals’ who also didn’t

    2. Thomas Magnum

      I think it's if you didn't pick a country you support or something, mine says neutral as well so presume it's just that

    Captain?

    A) Ronaldo
    B) E Hazard
    C) Dumfries

    1. Golden Company
      • 7 Years

      I think I’m going Ronaldo. I’d probably pick Ronnie from your 3.

      I’ve got him, Depay, Wijna, Dumfries and KDB.

      Am I mad going Ronnie?

  22. The Reptile
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Hard decision - I've got Depay, KDB, Wijn, Ronaldo and Dumfries

    I'm between CR7 & KDB atm

    Who out of those?
