FPL team reveal: Who I’m replacing Ilkay Gundogan with for Gameweek 6

After five Gameweeks of the 2021/22 campaign, I’m sat with a fairly uninspiring Fantasy Premier League (FPL) rank of 633,801.

Having been positioned around 300k in Gameweek 3, it’s been a challenging couple of weeks for my team.

However, with margins fine (see below) and many FPL managers deploying chips in the opening weeks, focusing on rank at this stage of the season probably isn’t worth it.

Live totals needed for ranks, via Ragabolly’s excellent LiveFPL website

So, ahead of Gameweek 6, here is how I’m currently set-up, armed with one free transfer and £0.9m in the bank.

With a Wildcard pencilled in for Gameweek 8, any moves I make will at most be two-week plays.

That also came into my thinking last week, with an idea to use the ‘Gundogan’ spot as a rotating position that I could have some fun with, focusing on short-term punts before I Wildcard.

That didn’t exactly go to plan in Gameweek 5, as Ilkay Gundogan (£7.3m) and Manchester City underwhelmed, but it’s something I’m going to continue with this week, as the rest of my team looks ‘okay’, providing Raphinha (£6.5m) is fit of course.

So, with a budget of £8.2m, who is on the Watchlist?

    Worth taking a hit to get a playing 3rd defender or just start Ayling and hope for the best?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Just start Ayling

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      No defender seems worth a hit this week honestly.

    3. Hy liverpool
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      If only this is a chelsea defender

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Not against City, starting with a 4 minus.

    4. F4L
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      depends who you can afford, but probably not.

  4. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    First sub?

    A) Marcal (sou)
    B) Sissoko (NEW)

      2 months, 6 days ago

      A

      2 months, 6 days ago

      A

  5. GE
    • 5 Years

    Toney -> ASM a good move here? Or something else?

    (2FT, 0.9 itb)
    Sanchez
    TAA/Shaw/White
    Salah/Greenwood/Jota/Benrahma
    Ronaldo/Antonio/Toney

    Bench: Steele, Gilmour, Williams, Ayling*

    1. Abra Dubravka
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Yeah probably. And then get Chelsea defence and maybe sell Jota next week

  6. Echoes
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Repost for a new timezone crowd

    A: Raphinha -> Sarr
    B: Toney -> under 6.5
    C: Roll FT

    will WC in GW8.
    Will bring back Raphinha if I do A.
    will bring back Toney in GW10 if I do B or C.
    If I roll, will do Jota + Greenwood + Toney -> Sarr + under 6.9 + Lukaku in GW7. Thanks.

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    A) Keep
    B) Sarr
    C) Gallagher
    D) Townsend
    E) Doucoure

    Rest of team is:

    Ramsdale
    TAA - Semedo - Livramento
    Salah - Jota - Raphina - Traore

    Gunn - Duffy - Williams - Sissoko

    0.1m itb

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

      I sold for Gallagher in FanTeam and it would be my recommendation for you too.

      That looks like a post WC team so yeah definitely that. Long term Gallagher looks a great bet.

      1. ballsy_b
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks.
        Yes post wildcard team.. did wc last game week.
        Could really do with Antonio but I can see lukaku getting points tomorrow.

  9. waltzingmatildas
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Priority here?
    A) mount to sarr
    B) bamford to armstrong
    C) both - 4

    Subs are white, gilmour and ayling

  10. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Talk to me about Jimenez guys? Quite a few recommending him. Stats are decent I guess. No goals yet though. Also never really been a very high scoring playing but is consistent once he gets going. Looking at possible Ings replacements. Is ASM any better? Fantastic talent in a crap team

    1. THE SHEEP HUNTER
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Blackbox made some good points on Wolves in this weeks show on how Wolves tend to flow on the counter more against better teams. Though they looked like worthy of investment, having played so well in their difficult start, I've seen enough to ditch Jim this week for -4 and brought in Antonio(c) for -4.
      Keeping Traore though, for the giggles, I'm sorta confident he's gonna get points soon.

    2. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I ditched Jimi after 1 week, if he just retired in January I would not be surprised.

  11. Weasel Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Play Coufal or white?

    1. ballsy_b
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Coufal easily

  12. Gideons Rolling Another One
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Two free transfers:

    A: Torres to Sarr
    B: Greenwood to Sarr
    C: Burn the transfer

    ?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

    2. Neves say Neves
      • 3 Years

      Why are people selling Greenwood btw? Was looking at getting him in. Prefer A out of those

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Ronaldo affecting his output.

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years

      A

  13. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Think I should save my free transfer this gw. Is it worth it playing Duffy over Jota or Shaw?

    Sánchez
    Shaw, Alonso, TAA
    Jota, Salah(C), Fernandes(VC), Sarr
    Ings, Antonio, Toney

    Steele, Duffy, Gilmour, Amartey
    1 free transfer, 0.2 million in the bank

  15. Vertigo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Long story short - Raph to Sarr, GW6.

    1. winchester
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      what about bambam?

      1. Vertigo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Bamford or Benrahma?

        1. winchester
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 6 days ago

          thought you knew the short story about bamford to X, GW6

          1. Vertigo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            No, I didn't fall into the Bamford trap, fortunately.

            It's really just about to Raph to >(?) on a free transfer for me.

  16. Neves say Neves
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Best Watford striker?

    1. Mo Mane
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Luther Blisset

    2. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Gerry Armstrong

  17. TeddiPonza
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Play Livramento or Semedo?

    1. Mo Mane
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Livra

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Last week all the advice was double Wolves defence, going to give it another go!

  18. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Salah or Antonio for the armband?

    Head says Antonio RMT has Salah clearly ahead?

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Salah. Or CR7 if you have him.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        No Si

    2. Mo Mane
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Same issue, Salah has been solid every week, but Brentford and tough to break down, still think we will win (slight Bias) and if I am ever in doubt, I always go to Salah, have done for four years!! LOL

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        True

    3. F4L
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      point predictors always favour the premiums. I'm not sure if they take into account opposition's injuries either?

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Think I might board the Antonio bus, seems to be on fire & high ceiling

        1. F4L
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          for sure, I'm going for it as well; don't have Salah or CR7 though, so a bit easier to make the choice 🙂

          1. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            GL 🙂

  19. Mr Ozil
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Bamford >?

    A- Denis (don’t have Sarr)
    B- ASM

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Hold & await more info, fixtures are great?

    2. Evla5000
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I prefer Dennis, but thats bec others have him in my mini league and Newcastle are terrible

  20. Evla5000
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Who scored more this GW Toney or Dennis?

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      My crystal ball says Dennis.

    2. Mo Mane
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Dennis for me due to opposition!

    3. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Toney scored more

  21. gonzalocampos
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Current defense for this week:
    TAA - Shaw - Marcal - Dier (benching Ayling).

    Would you get Rudiger or Alonso now for Ayling or safe to get both next week for free?

    1. Evla5000
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      For free always

      1. gonzalocampos
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I can get 1 for free this week, my question was if I switch one now vs City or get both next week.

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      4 free next week

  22. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    A. Bring in Cancelo a week early OR

    B. Play Livramento

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

      B. You don't want Cancelo until 8. Next week he has Liverpool.

    2. F4L
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      nah forget Cancelo for now imo, I'm benching him for the next 2. So play Livra

  23. phuang
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Sanchez
    TAA, Shaw, Livramento
    Salah, Sarr, Mount, Jota, Gray
    Cr7, Antonio

    Subs: Steele, Christensen, Marcal, Street

    Used 1 FT to bring in Sarr for Raphinha. Have 1.2 ITB

    Now that Tuchel has just confirmed that Mount will be out this week, do I sell him or keep him?

    Chelsea’s fixture swing is just around the corner but Mount seems to not be in good form atm.

    1) Should I play Christensen and hope he starts and get a clean sheet?
    2) Take a -4 hit to bring Benrahma in for Mount

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      1

      1. phuang
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        That would probably leave me missing out on the potential of Benrahma getting a big haul against an injury-hit Leeds

  24. Lord of Ings
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Probably overthinking it but surely digne starts vs Norwich?

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Digne scores look like binary numbers

      1. Zim0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        😆

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Played five games scored 9 points in total with a -1 to boot

      2. Lord of Ings
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Sadly true but I need him this week so I can field a full xi
        So he starts yeah?

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Yes

        2. Big Hippo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          I think he starts. And Livramento probably outscores him again

    2. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Can't wait to get rid, one final week, let's see if he can get a positive score this time

    3. 1984 TC
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Digne (TC) here.

      Let’s gooooooo!

    4. Miro
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      One last week for him

  25. Van der Faart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Raph to

    A) Sarr
    B) Gallagher
    C) max 6.8

    For a hit.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Save

    2. F4L
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      who is first on your bench? I still think Raph has a good chance of playing

      1. Van der Faart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Will be Bissouma/White or Reguilon

  26. Rick891
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Who scores more this week?
    Jota
    Or
    Greenwood

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Wood may not even start

  27. De Gea is GOAT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Off to my best start in FPL and have no idea what to do.

    1Ft. Should i get Sarr for Bruno?

    Foster
    TAA Semedo Livramento Shaw
    Bruno Salah (c) Traore Benrhama
    Lukaku Antonio (maybe cap)?

    White Kovacic

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Lay off the drink.

  28. Krafty Werks
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    In your opinion, who scores more next 2 GW's? Thanks :

    A - Coufal (Leeds, Brentford)
    B - Vestergaard (Burnley, Palace)

  29. Mozumbus
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Why is there orange flag on Raphinha?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Injury doubt

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

        Hip injury may or may not be recovered...

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

      Which two to play out of Dias, Rudiger and Christensen? First two to hedge bets or double Chelsea?

      1. jackruet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Interesting. I would bet on home team to keep clean sheet

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago
