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?

    Play ASM or gray?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Gray

    2. ManofKent

      Gray - it's Norwich

    3. Puntillimon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Gray

    4. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo

      You on crack? Gray is a captaincy contender.

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Either is as a decent shout, but with Ron, Salah & Ant with good fixtures, does Gray top those c/vc choices?

    5. Mo Mane

      Gray, Simples.

    On wc
    Would you go ASM or Jimenez?

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Jim

    2. Vertigo
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Jimmy.

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      ASM

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I changed my mind. Probably Jimmy unless you can do something significant with the savings ASM offers.

    4. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Look at shots on target this season between the two

    5. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Neither. I'd choose a proven on-form striker with fixtures.

  3. Flynny
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    2 week punt before wildcard

    Toney to josh king

    Is that worth a go?

    Alternatives asm or Barnes

    Thanks

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I prefer barnes. Looked sharp at EL

    2. gellinmagellan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I like the King punt

  4. 03farmboy
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Benrahma or Sarr???

    1. Mo Mane
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Benrahma

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Ben for long term. Sarr for next 2

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

      Sarr

  5. gellinmagellan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2 months, 10 days ago

    Too early to be "chasing" but is Antonio a better captaincy shout for someone with a rather uninspiring 600k OR? Over Salah.

    1. 1966 was a great year for E…
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I wouldn't factor rank into the decision this early in the season, just who you think will do better. I'd go Salah personally.

      1. gellinmagellan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Fair enough, I'm leaning Salah too...just feel that it might be worth the 'differential' given the Leeds defence

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Double digit scores in first three games, Red followed by missing one game.
      Still ahead by 10 points on the other strikers!

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

      It doesn't matter what rank you are. What matters if who you think scores more points? Antonio or Salah. It's really that simple.

    Has there been any more news on Raphina since yesterday, spotted in training or anything?

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

      Consensus from Leeds fans is he will play

      1. Halftime Lemon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Just heard Summerville may have been drafted into senior squad from u23s as possible replacement for Raph. Could just be bench cover tho

  7. Aaa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Foolishy wildcarded, gtg? 1.8itb

    Guaita
    TAA/James/Alonso
    Salah(c)/Pogba/Sarr/Gray
    Ronaldo/Antonio/Armstrong
    (Foster/Liv/Duffy/Gilmour)

  8. Abaddon
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Grealish to Benrahma?

    Yay or nay

    1. Boxwoods
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Naw

      1. Abaddon
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        It’s naw or never?

    2. linkafu
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Nope

    3. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Lol no

  9. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Thoughts?

    Sanchez
    Trent • Shaw • Semedo
    Salah • Jota • Raph • Barnes • Ben
    Ronaldo • Jesus
    (Steele / Livramento / Hoever / Obafemi)

    Jesus to Antonio the obvious move? Will most likely WC GW7/8

    1. Cheeky Onion
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      You're a loyal fella still having Barnes in the squad. Either Jesus or Raph are the transfers out; would only do Raph if you plan on transferring back in soon or still have WC plans for GW 7/8

  10. 2hotty
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Worth keeping Torres or is it time to shift already have Salah Jota Benrahma and Sarr

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I am holding playing 9 with cracking fixtures on horizon

    2. Cheeky Onion
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      He'd be first out in your midfield. If no other problems in the squad then transfer to fodder to improve elsewhere unless you plan on using 3-5-2

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

      Keep

  11. linkafu
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    A Antonio Sarr
    B Vardy Benrahma

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

      A

    Sanchez
    TAA - Shaw - Regulon
    Salah - Raph - Torres - Benrahma
    Ings - Ronaldo- Toney

    Foster - Veltman - Tsim - Brownhill

    A) Toney > ASM
    B) Ings > Antonio
    C) Torres + Toney > Sarr + Antonio (-4)
    D) Raph + Ings > Sarr + Antonio (-4)

    1. 2hotty
      • 4 Years

      C for me

  13. Miro
    • 11 Years

    1. Krafty Werks
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Tight but just Coufal for me.

  14. Krafty Werks
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Play which 2? Thanks :

    A - Rudiger (H vs Man City)
    B - Tierney (H vs Spurs)
    C - Semedo (A vs Southampton)
    D - Duffy (A vs Palace)

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

      AB imo

    2. Abaddon
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      A and D

  15. Nedvěd11
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Bench Saka or Dennis?
    Already got Sarr.

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

      Tough choice - I'd lean to playing Dennis based on opposition

  16. linkafu
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    A Antonio Sarr
    B Vardy Benrahma
    C Antonio Benrahma

  17. Cheeky Onion
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    I'm sure it's been asked a million times this week, but who to captian?

    A) Salah (Seems a good pick, but away to a Brentford side who've been solid at the back)
    B) Ronaldo (Playing at home, seems like the obvious choice)
    C) Antonio (Away to a wide open Leeds side with several absentees in defence. Fresh off suspension which might affect his form, but could be another great differential)

    On B, but tempted to punt on C

  18. Tarby

    I think those Sarr have actually put me off him! Basically nothing except against Norwich!
    What it does do is make me think just get in players vs Norwich!
