What does Brighton’s signing of a new goalkeeper mean for Robert Sanchez?

Brighton and Hove Albion’s Robert Sanchez (£4.5m) is the second most-popular goalkeeper in Fantasy Premier League, sitting in over 27% of FPL squads at present.

The Spaniard is owned by more Fantasy managers than the rest of the other £4.5m shot-stoppers combined, so Friday’s news that the Seagulls had sealed the signing of 21-year-old Dutch custodian Kjell Scherpen from Ajax may have been disconcerting to some.

The transfer has actually been on the cards for some time, with media reports in May suggesting talks had already begun.

Scherpen, a Netherlands under-21 international, had made only two league appearances for Ajax in his two years in Amsterdam but had previous senior experience with former club Emmen.

Albion boss Graham Potter said of his new capture:

We’re delighted to welcome Kjell to the club. He’s a player we have been monitoring for a while and we see him as a player with a lot of the right attributes.

As well as his size he is someone we think will work very hard to improve all aspects of his game as he gets used to English football. We look forward to working with him.

What does the new signing mean for Robert Sanchez?

Salah and blanks again as Brighton defensive assets shine ahead of good run 3

The departure of Mat Ryan (£4.5m) and expected exit of Christian Walton did make it seem likely that Potter would swoop for another goalkeeper in the summer, with Jason Steele (£4.0m) not a serious candidate for promotion to the Albion starting XI.

Thankfully for prospective Sanchez owners, Scherpen may also be a little way from the first team – for now, at least.

The Athletic’s Andy Naylor previously reported that:

Scherpen… will be a back-up goalkeeper for Brighton, as a number 2/3, in-between first choice Robert Sanchez and Jason Steele.

The Athletic understands he is likely to be loaned out to aid his development, a tactic Brighton have used with Sanchez and Christian Walton, who is leaving after eight years at the club.

Maty Ryan, replaced in December in Graham Potter’s side by Sanchez, is also departing after a loan spell at Arsenal as part of the overhaul of the goalkeeping group.

Brighton have forthcoming pre-season friendlies against Rangers on July 24 and Getafe on August 7, with the latter warm-up game in particular likely to tell us more about how Potter is planning to set his troops up in Gameweek 1.

    Really want Pepe in FPL but he's just not convincing. Always in and out of the game, he'll get some explosive scored thought the season, but will also frustrate and be rotated a lot.

      Good job convincing yourself here.

  2. OneMan

    Buendia, will he be taken off early given the midfield players Dean Smith has at his disposal ?

    1. polis
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      After he's already scored 5-10 points? Fine with me.

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years

      I think it is best not to take risks early on unless one plans to WC very early. We need to know Buedia's place in the team first.

        Or can just move to sarr who has a nice run after the first couple of games

        If you wait for everyone to prove themselves before going for them you’ll never stick out from the pack. He has all the hallmarks of a bargain and previous good returns when playing for Norwich in the prem. he’s a low risk, potential high reward in my opinion.

    Thoughts?

    1. LangerznMash

      I did 5-4-1 last season and it was my worst finish ever lol.

  5. Jdpz

    2 months, 11 days ago

    What you think about Auba for 10.0m?

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Naah

    2. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I'd prefer Son for the same price as a mid

    3. OneMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Not interested at all. Would prefer Son at 10.

    4. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Depends what Auba we get. Last season Auba wasn't even close to being worth 10m, but we all know he can be so much better.

      Not in any rush to jump back into that trap, just wait and see.

    5. Opie51
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I'd check his early season form first. Personally I'd spread the £10m over two forwards like Antonio/Iheanacho/Wilson etc. Unless he starts bagging 1-2 goals or assists first 4 gameweeks

  6. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    With White going to Arsenal, is Duffy at 4.0 an option now?

    1. OneMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Yes. Duffy is a good player. What holds him back at Brighton is he’s not a player to play the ball out. Potter seems to prefer CB’s that build from the back.

    2. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Guessing they'll sign some sort of replacement but regardless I imagine the likes of Veltman would be ahead of him in a back 5. Duffy was not suited to Potter's tactics and he really struggled at Celtic as well.

      Your best hope is probably that they play a back 4 and Duffy becomes first choice backup?

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      They still have 4 very decent CBs - Webster, Burn, Dunk and Veltman.

      You'd think Brighton would be looking for a 50m striker.

  7. Grounderz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Quick question on the Members' area. If I have set up some tables, and my membership expires without any renewal after that point in time, do I get the tables back (to how it was actually set up before the expiration) when I renew my membership at some point in the future?

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Only one way to find out

    2. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Good question. I'd be pretty confident that you would (back before we had rolling subs there would always be a few weeks where nobody had membership but your tables were always there when you signed back up) and I'm not aware of anything being deleted / wiped when your sub expires, it just changes your access privileges.

      Can't be certain though.

      1. Grounderz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yup, I think the tables should remain. I would be pretty disappointed if they disappear like a whole new membership account.

  8. Drip Doctor
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Given you'll likely want your captain playing at home, who has the best run?

    Salah - BUR, CHE, CRY, MCY BRI

    Bruno - LEE, NEW, AVL, EVE LIV

    KDB - NOR, ARS, SOT, BUR, CRY

    Only ask because it seems to be Salah and one other in most teams, but if you look at this, the other two have a better set of fixtures.

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Most have Salah and Bruno. KDB has not been fully fit.

      1. Drip Doctor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        He will be come the start of the season though.

    2. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      With this home fixture polarisation I'd be inclined to say KDB, Bruno and then Salah.

  9. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Done tinkering for now, think Dallas and Cantwell will be insane value!

    4.5
    Trent | Shaw | Coufal
    Salah | Bruno | Raphinha | Dallas | Cantwell
    Kane | Pukki

    4.0 | 4.5 def | 4.0 def | 4.5 str

    1. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      🙂 See you back in an hour

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Haha nah I’m done. I know my options and what I prefer.
        See what happens now

    2. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Who's your captain?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        😉

  10. farmerfat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Is Ayling under priced at 4.5m?

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

      According to his XGi he was in the top 10 attacking defenders last year & was incredibly unlucky not to return

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I think it will largely depend on whether he’s mainly deployed at fullback or centre back.
      At fullback he could be a tad underpriced

  11. EmreCan Hustle
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Anyone keeping an eye on Dele Alli? Have him in my team currently.

    6.5m mid with a history of consistently scoring 200 points and potential to be OOP.

    Please make it happen Nuno!

    1. Drip Doctor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Wait and see for me.

      1. EmreCan Hustle
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        That's what everyone will do....I might punt on him. Could be batter than Son 🙂

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          *better

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

      pre-season

      1. EmreCan Hustle
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Boselli

    3. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Yep, I'll wait though. No doubt there's talent & hopefully points to be tapped there

    4. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Nah, I think Dele Alli has been on the decline for a while now.

    5. OneMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Consistency scoring 200 points isn’t one year. Definitely wait and see.

      1. Boxwoods
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Exactly this!

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

      He must be such a horrific trainer to not be able to get games with all that ability

      If Nuno doesn’t humour passengers, or wants guys training properly then Alli isn’t going to have a good time imo

      Great option If he hits form mind you

      1. OneMan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Played in a midfield 3 against L Orient, definitely not potential playing from that deep.

  12. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Afternoon all!!! What do we we think
    Is the best option here???

    It’s basically…..

    A- Son and a 5.5 Defender
    Or
    B- TAA and an 8.0 Midfielder

    Cheers all!!

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B. TAA is essential IMO.

    2. OneMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B. With Barnes.

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Cheers fellas!!! Will stick with TAA!! And I keep
        Going back to Barnes seemingly anytime I do a bit of tinkering!!!

        1. OneMan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Yeah Barnes makes sense. No Euro involvement either so should come straight out of the traps.

          1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            My exact thoughts too mate!!!! Exiting player!!!

    3. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B with Grealish for the first 3 gws until we see what's happening at City

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        He’s Definitely in my thoughts mate!! The scenario changes for me slightly I think if I go for Trent which I probably will, it’s then Toney and Grealish or Barnes and Antonio!! So I might lean towards the later too start!!

        1. Pep bites Kun
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Interesting - I've got Trent. Right now I'm opting for Grealish and Toney, but I've also got Watkins up front. But I'm debating the double AVL attack with no Ham as both fixture sets look good. The forward line is a work in progress

          Watkins - Toney - DCL/Nacho/Antonio/Bamford

    4. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B. TAA and Grealish

        This

  13. OneMan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Was at a wedding yday. Felt odd not to be checking this forum for an entire day. Would say one or 2 players with emerge preseason and shuffle up the templates a bit.

    1. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years

      Were you the groom? 😉

      1. OneMan

        Nah, dodged a bullet there! I’m out of contract dude!

        1. Pep bites Kun
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Haha fair enough

  14. Tinmen
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    How is this looking folks?

    Sanchez
    Trent Shaw Dias Fofana
    Salah Havertz Grealish Greenwood
    Cavani Watkins
    Foster Tonev Lamptey Bissouma

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Don’t mind it but to many rotation headaches in there for my liking, would probably just go with someone more nailed up front than cavani and re invest the change

  15. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Thought it would be fun to start a thread on trying to predict the bargain and surprises of this season:

    The new Martinez?

    Sanchez, Bachmann the two that spring to mind.

    The new Dallas?

    Hoping this could be Lamptey if he stays fit.

    The new Son?

    A midfielder around 9m who can hit Son’s 200+ season from last, can’t see anyone who stands out here….

    The new Bamford?

    JOSH KING surely??

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      The new Soucek?

      Could it be Rice, maybe Cantwell/ESR/Canos?

      1. LegendMoon
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        The new Donny Van der beck could it be Eml Buendia?

        1. FingerNFudge
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Haha

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Raph will be the new Son

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        That would be amazing!

    3. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Yeah I think King will be criminally overlooked for the England squad this year too

      1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Would have been useful in the penalty shootout too.

      2. Tomerick
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Never gets a look in. Wonder why?

        1. The Pesci challenge
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Because he’s Norwegian

          2. Tomerick
            • 7 Years

            Oh really? Who’d have thought.

    4. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      The new Son: Havertz

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Shout

    5. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      The new Martinez? Bachmann

      The new Dallas? Phew - no idea - hopefully Ayling or Lamptey

      The new Son? Dele Alli

      A midfielder around 9m who can hit Son’s 200+ season - Foden, Sancho

      The new Bamford? Toney, at a push Pukki

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        *A midfielder around 9m who can hit Son’s 200+ season - should have added Havertz - my bad

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Yeah sounds promising..

    6. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Bachmann
      Ait nouri
      Havertz
      Armstrong when he signs for southampton

  16. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Why are people against Toney?

    First 5 fixtures are decent, he’s on pens coming off a massive season in the championship, and he plays for a moneyball team…

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

      He is literally the highest owned striker in the game

      People are incredibly optimistic about him (and rightly so imo)

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I think he looks good

      Looking back recently Watkins, bamford etc were all gems at 6.5 so hoping he’s the same

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Even go back to Jimi in his first PL season, and the almighty Pukki

        Bamf was 5.5. And that's a big reason why Toney isn't.

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Going with the slightly more prem proven Pukki

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Best you check Norwich’s fixtures first

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          I know but going against the grain, if he still scores then all good

    4. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      And he will probably rake in the BPs as he is by far Brentford's best player. Must have at 6.5M as he will probably score more points than a number of strikers that cost much more.

    Sanchez and lamptey both really popular are people actually doubling up? I’m not sure I have that much faith in Brighton defence

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Their defence is stellar

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Im Currently on bachmann and lamptey and don't want to double up

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Wouldn’t trust Watford anywhere near as much as Brighton

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

      Yeah, I've got both, but if they bomb, I've also got insurance in Bachmann and Ayling

    3. Premier Fantasy

      2 months, 11 days ago

      Had Dunk last season, hardly any clean sheets. Not like in previous seasons.

  18. LangerznMash
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    We have been spoilt for choice with the mid priced forwards.
    £7.5m - Iheanacho + Watkins
    £8.0m - Bamford + DCL

    All great options.

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Watkins was one of the first players I put in and haven’t moved him since

    2. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Wilson, Cavani, Toney, Antonio can all make that list too.

    3. ritzyd

        Welbeck been mentioned round here few times.

  19. Vertigo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    I'm not really worried about Sanchez, I just hope Steele remains backup.

  20. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Nuno playing 4,3,3

  21. pingissimus

    Thierry Henry being linked to Palace.

    I *think* it’s in a coaching role but we are short up front

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Could get Ashley is as well

  22. Amartey Partey
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    If Kane joins city will you find a way to get Kane, Salah, and Bruno?

    1. gogs67
      2 months, 11 days ago

      May well go Kane Salah and Son.
      That's what I did last season, swapping Mo and Bruno around a few times

      1. gogs67
        2 months, 11 days ago

        My bad, totally misread your post, was thinking if Kane stayed at Spurs!
        If he's at City I'll be thinking of bringing KDB in

        1. Amartey Partey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          You think Kane will score more points at Spurs then city?

          1. gogs67
            2 months, 11 days ago

            No, he'll break records if he goes to City, lol. But now that he's got assists in his game then he's difficult to leave out, no matter where he is

      2. Amartey Partey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        That's a good option too. Bruno has such good fixtures to start though.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Not a fan of triple premium. I'd probably sacrifice Bruno for Sancho or Pogba or Cavani.

    3. SH1M1
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      It’s not going to happen but he’s a great option regardless

      1. Amartey Partey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Risky option if he stays at Spurs though as he doesn't want to be there.

        1. Vertigo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          He'll want to make the World Cup, I suppose. Although he's no doubt a shoe in already.

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Already have all 3

  23. gogs67
    2 months, 11 days ago

    No wonder I'm having a struggle leaving out players who did me so well last season.
    Just loaded new squad into Fantasy Football Fix and the old one had a value of £114.2 million as we finished!!
    That's a lot of cash to have to find lol

  24. Torreslove

    Hello all, doing a bit of recruitment for my Fantrax draft league. We are in our 8th season running so far. Started off as a close knit of lads from here who got tired of FPL and wanted to play draft and now (slowly) grown into two divisions of 13 teams each. We had a slew of retirements after last season and now have 6 open spots in division 2.

    A little bit more info - scoring has a FPL base, but added tweaks of our own over the years. Claims are done through a bidding system so every manager has a fair shot for claiming players. $10 buy-in for division 2. We run group chats on WhatsApp, so that would be required. Draft is at the end of July (slow draft). I'm happy to answer anymore questions!!

    Email is on my profile for everyone interested!

  25. Premier Fantasy

    2 months, 11 days ago

    I couldn't resist Salah:

    Martinez (Foster)
    Chilwell, Digne, Wan-Bissaka, Fofana (Neco Williams)
    Salah, Fernandes, Mount, Hojbjerg (Gilmour)
    Kane, Toney (Davis)

    1. Vertigo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      That bench though...

  26. OneMan

    If Varane comes to United. United full backs become a lot more interesting.

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

      True

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Seems likely. Can't see myself not starting with Shaw if he's available for GW1.

  27. Zim0
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Doesn't the UEFA Super Cup make Chelsea assets even riskier than they already are with their first match just days after?

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      What about charity shield?

      1. Zim0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        That's a week tho. This is just less than 3 days.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Dunno, could be a good thing to get a proper game under the belt.

  28. ★Kuntheman★
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    If Kane goes to City this is definitely going to be my lineup:

    Sanchez (Foster)
    Lamptey Ayling Fofana White (4.0)
    Salah Fernandes De Bruyne Harrison Smith-Rowe
    Kane (4.5 4.5)

    Could see KDB and Kane break all kinds of records

    1. J ⚒ Gimme ur Mané
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Is KDB likely to start?

      1. ★Kuntheman★
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        So long as he’s recovered from his injury, yeah

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      That defence just doesn't look good enough. Do you really need Kane, KDB, Salah and Bruno when you can only captain one of them each week? In this scenario I'd downgrade Bruno and strengthen your defence.

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        You've also got 0 playing subs which is a hard no for me.

      2. ★Kuntheman★
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        This is fair, I could see a Bruno drop to Sancho

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      De Bruyne to Son and a 4.5 str to a 6.5 and you could be onto something

      1. ★Kuntheman★
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        That’s an interesting move, I’d lean upgrading the defense though and upgrading two 4.5s to 5.5s

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          The 4.5 defs play though, the 4.5 str don’t.

          Plus upgrading that 2nd striker allows so much more flexibility down the line.

          For example, last season I started with Kane and 2 x 4.5s and instantly regretted when DCL started firing, it was much trickier to jump on the wagons

          1. ★Kuntheman★
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            This is fair. Idk if I believe in the likes of Toney-Pukki-Welbeck though

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

              The thing is someone will emerge from that price bracket, or at least close to. There always is. And you’ll be prepared to hop on easily

              1. ★Kuntheman★
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 11 days ago

                That’s fair, either way this team isn’t gonna be my draft unless Kane moves. You think he goes this summer?

                1. KAPTAIN KANE
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 11 days ago

                  No, next year

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Gonna feel weird this season not having you as an option 🙁

      1. ★Kuntheman★
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        It’s actually so sad tbh, he was a locked captain most weeks just a few seasons ago

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

      TAA will horribly eat into any gains you make from KDB

      KDB > Bamford/Nacho/Toney, 4.0 def > TAA, 4.5 def becomes first sub

      You’ll have 0, 0.5 or 1.5 ITB depending on which striker accompanies Kane & that gets used to upgrade a 4.5 defender

      That’ll be the popular 4-4-2 if Kane signs

      1. ★Kuntheman★
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Not having TAA is a tough one tbh, also wish I could squeeze the 0.5 for Raphinha.

        Probably have to drop Fernandes for another MUN mid

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

          KDB’s a no brainer sacrificial lamb for me - 1 goal from play in the first half of the season, 8 appearances in the second half (5 blanks), living an injury nightmare for 2 of the last 3 seasons, allegedly played against Italy with compromised ankle ligaments, all the messing around he does with penalties (either missing hem or giving them away)….

          And let’s be honest - at 12m, you’d have been disappointed with 5 of his last 6 seasons from an FPL perspective

          Unbelievable player on his day, but by god he was a nightmare last season, not worth the hassle from GW1 imo, especially in a team with Bruno, Salah, Kane

  29. Cak Juris
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Best options:
    A. Ben White - Jota
    B. Ben White - Rashford
    C. Digne - Raphinha
    D. Shaw - Raphinha

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      D

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      D
