Sell Ronaldo for Lukaku in Gameweek 7? What FPL managers are thinking

A favourable fixture swing for Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) going into Gameweek 7 has seen the Belgian attract around 175,000 new Fantasy Premier League (FPL) at the time of writing.

The Blues rise to the top of our Season Ticker for the medium term, with their next five league matches, in particular, standing out:

For those FPL bosses keen on Lukaku, how to acquire him is the next dilemma.

A ‘three premium’ set-up means that Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) wouldn’t have to be sold to accommodate the Belgian, although that would require considerable sacrifices elsewhere.

For those with space for only two heavy hitters, then it might be a case of ditching the top-scoring Fantasy asset, Mohamed Salah (£12.6m), and reallocating funds up top, or, more likely, offloading Ronaldo in a like-for-like swap.

The veteran Portuguese is the second most-sold forward of Gameweek 7 so far, with just over 100,000 transfers out at the time of writing.

We delve into the responses from both our on-site poll and Hot Topic to see what the Fantasy Football Scout community is thinking.

    A) Vardy
    B) Auba
    C) Jesus
    D) Jiminez

    Jiminez affords bigger spending elsewhere

    1. The Knights Template

      D

    2. pingissimus
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      If pressed I'd go B over A

      But that is based on Palace away and to a less extent Brentford away not being as green as portrayed for Vardy and the fact I can afford Auba but not him 🙂

      4 home fixtures in next 6 for Arsenal the other rationale

      First off, this is not a dig at you Pancake, it's more a general comment....

      I really find these 'good to go?' posts the most tedious things on here. We have no idea if you've already made a transfer, played your WC or still have FTs in place, so what are you looking for here?

      People should ask specific questions and provide facts to help us help you. This was everyone learns and can benefit from the advice of people on here with experience.

      Good to go posts are pointless imo

      Sorry, had to get that off my chest

    Interesting how the sentiment around TAA seems to have shifted. Of course he missed one game and there are question marks over his fitness for this weekend, but a few weeks ago there was no question whatsoever that he was a season keeper and undroppable for any game or run, one of the very few players (if not the only player) regarded as such in FPL by many. But now it seems like a lot more people are considering moving him on for a while or at least having doubts about how essential he is. Liverpool haven't looked incredibly secure defensively so far, Alisson bailed them out with a triple save against Norwich and a few good saves against Burnley and Palace, and Chelsea were pretty comfortable against them until James' red card. Now they've conceded a few in one match (and it might have been more) and have a couple of tricky fixtures ahead, the consensus seems to have changed a bit.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Yes

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Happens every season.

    3. pingissimus
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I imagine the consensus on Rudiger will also change when Chelsea concede a couple of goals and he gets nowhere near baps. Their defence has been under much more pressure this season typically than last. It was not just the Liverpool match but Villa too.

      1. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Indeed, I didn't get to catch the whole game live but if not for Watkins being wasteful and Mendy having a great game that could have been a much closer game. I think it shows that, for as good as Alonso has been at times, they really need someone like Chilwell to be available and at his best for games like that and City

    4. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      basically no player is season keeper. have to chop and change if and when required.

      1. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Completely agree, especially for those with a premium price. I'll admit I've been lucky after I moved him on in my GW4 WC with him being unwell once and then the 1 pointer last week but the signs were there that they were vulnerable at the back (even against Leeds who were very poor against them, Bamford a number of times easily got into space between VVD and Matip or Robertson)

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          I think he has reached at a height where CS is just a bonus for him, we have him solely for attacking returns. Someone posted that he has 88(CS, Goal, Assist) returns in 101 games till date which is pretty high.

          Current situation does allow to drop him for few weeks though with Man City and Chelsea defender looking good. But what are we going to do with the cash?

    5. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I think you raise a good point. For me, I was/am definitely one of those people who was preaching that TAA is a solid block in a team and it ought to stay that way for the reason.

      It kind of boils down to this, the moves you make need to improve your starting 11. If there's a chance that TAA is injured for a game or two, it'll make sense for people to be shifting towards selling, selling doesn't mean you won't re-buy at some point but TAA could faciliate two Chelsea defenders with the spare cash generated,

      and cash is fairly tight right now.

      1. pingissimus
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Speak for yourself - I have around 4 million burning a hole in my pocket 😉

        If you are tight for cash then there is the danger of glossing over a rather important issue. TAA is the hardest defender to buy as he is the most expensive in the game. One transfer can become three transfers quite easily - I speak from experience here - without money itb he requires two FTs to bring in.

        Sellable for sure of course - really comes to down to bench options and general set up

    6. denial
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      This is partly why the whole 'season keeper' idea doesn't hold water. It's perfectly fine to ditch any player. We have transfers.

    7. Snooze ya lose
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Just a turn of phrase!

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

      I haven't considered selling him at all.

    9. BERGKOP
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Which makes the term "season keeper" ridiculous.

  5. Gazza2000
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Used my FT already and if Ayling is fit I will probably go with this lot and WC next week but would you take out Torres for a one week punt for -4 here? or just hope he will start or get Sissoko of the bench?

    Got 1.9 ITB

    Sanchez
    TAA Rudiger Ayling*
    Salah Torres* Raphinha Benrahma
    Antonio Ronaldo ASM

    Steele Sissoko Webster Tsimikas

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Who would you punt on?

      1. Gazza2000
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Thinking of a Chelsea midfielder to bring in

        1. Gazza2000
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Or Pogba/Greenwood

          1. The Knights Template
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            I think greenwood still a good option

    2. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Just figured out I could do Webster to Alonso for -4 as well, if there are signs he will start I think this will be my preferred move.

  6. Athletic Nasherbo
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Gameweek 8 Wildcard draft. Thoughts?

    Sanchez
    VVD Cancelo Alonso
    Salah(C) Grealish Gray Gallagher
    Lukaku Aubameyang Toney

    Raya Livramento Tomiyasu Luiz

    Grealish + Aubameyang could still be KdB + Armstrong.

    1. pingissimus
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Double take to see Grealish over Antonio - otherwise loverly.

      Might be a time for the Grealish Antonio switcheroo but seems premature to ditch him now. Started the season as a doubter but the form is too undeniable.

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        I agree. Just banking on City GW 8-10 score more than West Ham. It could definitely backfire.

        If I have Antonio instead of Aubameyang I have lots more to play with but nobody in the midfielder I like. Son perhaps the only intriguing one.

    2. Maeki2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Dont go without Antonio he provides best value/point in game

  7. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Pick one:

    A) Go boring with Christensen in a Chelsea double up with Rudiger
    B) Punt a bit and pick Matty Cash
    C) Ignore both, play a different formation and get ESR

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      B

    2. TheBiffas
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      depends on who your thrid mid is

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Salah Raph Gallagher are the three. With ESR it will be 3 4 3 with TAA Rudiger White/ Livra in defense

    3. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      C probably.

      I only think you need one Chelsea defender.

      I want to leave one attacking slot open. Those fixtures are so good that in the next 2 weeks one of the Chelsea mids might emerge - Ziyech, Mount, Kovacic even and I want that flexibility.

      If I go double defense it will be double City def.

  8. Oliver Tockman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Looking like 4-3-3 on WC. Anyone else?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Ate you looking for a friend?

    2. TheBiffas
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      i prefer the flexibility of 3-4-3 because i have the ability to bench one of my cheaper mids when they have a poor fixture

    3. Flair
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Yeah, went 4-3-3 on WC and happy with that. Between TAA, City and Chelsea there are too many good defenders with great fixtures not to go 4ATB for me.

  9. ZakyJ
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    A) Ings & TAA > Ruduger and Lukaku (exact amount)
    B) CR7 and Shaw > Lukaku & Rudiger (lots of money)
    C) CR7> Lukaku (lots of money and carry over FT)

    1. Oliver Tockman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      A, sit a week or two more with Ronaldo before shipping

  10. Oliver Tockman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    A) Dias, Greenwood, Jimenez
    B) Livramento, mid < 6.7, Vardy

    1. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      B with Raphinha or Saka

  11. TheBiffas
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Dilemma on which formation to go with on WC. Which looks best?

    TAA - Cancelo - Alonso - Rudiger
    ESR - Salah - Raphinha

    TAA - Cancelo - Alonso
    ESR - Salah - Raphinha - Sarr

    1. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      First option for me, don't like the Watford fixtures coming up after Leeds.

    2. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Rudiger option

    3. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      4 3. I think Rudiger will bring you more points than Sarr and for less.

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

    any update on Bamford?

    1. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Nope

  13. FPL MAN 123
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Simple....

    Sarr or Raphina is this WC team? (Injured?)

    Ramsdale
    Alonso | Rudiger | Marcal
    Salah | Benrhama | Smith-Rowe | Sarr/Raph
    Ronnie | Lukaku | Antonio

    Foster | Douglas Luiz | Duffy | Liverimento

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

      both and drop Benrha

    2. dabber7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Sarr for this week/WC with the cash ITB to switch to Raph going forwards if he has no injury issues.

  14. apprehensivepipe4
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 5 days ago

    ON WC RMT

    Ramsdale Foster

    TAA Alonso Rudiger Cancelo Livramento

    Salah Grealish Raphinha ESR Douglas Luiz

    Lukaku Antonio Toney

    .2 ITB

    1. Diamondgeezer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Nice team, I like the Grealish pick for the long term.

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

      Exactly the same as my GW8 wildcard team at the moment. Maybe Brownhill for Luiz? I doubt you need to play Luiz ever.

    3. Chris_White
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Very similar to what I have in mind for GW8. Hoping to squeeze in Dias over Rudiger

  15. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    So how many hits have you taken this season?
    Just took my first one.

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      More than one.

      1. james 101
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Actually. I lied. I’m so used to taking them I assumed I had.

        Not taken any yet. Which I find amazing!

    2. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      3

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      None. Trying not to take any this year.
      Still have Barnes so maybe not such a great idea actually

    4. Flair
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Zero. Pretty happy with that.

  16. james 101
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    2FTs. Just 0.4m in the bank.

    What would you do next with this?!

    Sanchez

    TAA Tierney Livra

    Salah Jota Benrahma Greenwood

    Ronaldo Antonio Bamford

    (Steele Coady Allan Williams)

    Tempted by Alonso. Lukaku too.
    Concerned about Bambam.

    1. Diamondgeezer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Ron to Rom. Upgrade Coady to Rudiger.

    2. Champione
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Jota > Raphinha and Coady > Rudiger

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        This probably

      2. james 101
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Cheers!

  17. Tomsk
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 5 days ago

    What price should Bruno Fernandes be without being on penalties?
    I don’t think I would buy him even at £10.5m

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      He’s quality. But we need to see how well he will do in open play with Ronnie around.

    2. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Been fairly unlucky so far not to get more returns, still runs the show at united

    3. Bam Saka Laca
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      At 9.5 I could buy him back

    4. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      10.5m and I'd consider again. He's still creating a ton of chances.

    5. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Why would anyone buy a 36 year old, no matter how good, in a position in which you are well stocked, when it hampers your best player and brightest young player and you still have glaring holes elsewhere in the team?

  18. Champione
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Suggestions? 2 FT, 0.1

    Guaita
    TAA Rudiger James* Semedo
    Salah Jota Gallagher Gray
    Ronaldo Lukaku (C)

    Steer Sissoko Livramento Richardson

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Jota and James to DEF of your choice from City or Chelsea and Raph work?

    2. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Jota and James to Raphinha and Dias

    3. Champione
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Thanks both! Sensible moves I guess

  19. West Hammered
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    On WC which combo is better

    A) Benrahma & Doucoure
    B) Saka & Gallagher

    One will likely be first on the bench most weeks (4 premium defenders but will play both this GW)

    Also
    Aubameyang or Son for a short term pick?

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

      Auba now, Son from GW12

    2. Champione
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      B and Son

    3. Bam Saka Laca
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      B and Auba short term

      1. West Hammered
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Hi lads,

    Already on -4 (Jota/Bamford -> Gallagher/Antonio)
    No WC left and no money itb.

    Anything worth a second hit?

    Sánchez
    TAA Semedo Rüdiger
    Traore Gallagher Salah Townsend
    Lukaku(c) Antonio Ronaldo(vc)

  21. Colonel Shoe 肝池

    Rudiger or Alonso?

    1. Bam Saka Laca
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I would say both but Rudi is the safer pick with Chilly in the mix...

    2. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Rudiger

    3. james 101

    It's rather hilarious how Spurs and Arsenal have completely flipped roles.

    Nuno won manager of the month in August. Spurs have since let in 9 goals and lost 3 on the bounce.

    Arsenal were completely sunk after letting in 10 goals with 3 defeats on the bounce in August. Since then, they have won 3 on the spin and Arteta looks like he'll be named manager of the month in September.

    Sanchez

    TAA Tierney Livra

    Salah Jota Benrahma Greenwood

    Ronaldo Antonio Bamford

    (Note. Leaves 1m itb to upgrade Tierney to Rudiger next week.)

    B. Coady/Ron to Rudiger/Lukaku.

        Yes. Tempting!!

      1. james 101

        Kind of what I’m thinking.

        Heard anything on bam?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          No, Bielsa normally pretty honest if you can hang on a few days

          1. james 101
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            I can do that. No rush.

    3. Camzy

      You're benching Coady at home to Newcastle?

      I don't understand your moves.

      I'd look at something similar to what I'm planning - TAA, Jota, Bamford > Alonso, ESR, Lukaku -4

      And then WC next week.

      1. james 101
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Nope. I’d play him if I have him.

        I think TAA is a season keeper. Jota for a while too. But appreciate the message mate.

        1. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          It doesn't matter if he's a season keeper or not if you WC next week. You can buy him back. If you don't have WC it's trickier.

  24. TheBiffas
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 5 days ago

    A) Rudiger, ESR
    B) Christensen, Saka

    1. james 101

    be the jury for me guys...

    I have had Grealish since GW1, is it time to move him on? or are his underlying stats too good to ignore?

    1. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Thinking of getting him in, I would keep for sure

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I'd keep if I had him - seemingly nailed City player a rare gem

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

        not really returning though..

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.

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

      I would keep. Good fixtures coming.

    4. Flair
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Definite keep. Starting City attacker for 8M with great fixtures - and the annual Burnley 5-0 - just around the corner.

  26. Sakib.jafar
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Top of the table with 446 Points.
    1FT. Just 1.6m in the bank.

    Sanchez

    TAA Rudiger Coady

    Salah Jota Sarr Raphinha

    Ronaldo Antonio Saint-Maximin

    (Steele Ayling Allan Williams)

    A. Coady - Cancelo or Alonso
    (Note. Leaves 0 itb).

    B. Do I get rid of Raphinha - Saka or Benrahma

    C. Something else (what??)

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Easy A, but could you do with Ayling?

      1. Sakib.jafar
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Can be done with Ayling. Shall I get Alonso or Cancelo?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Cancelo I think, you already have Rudi and Mendy issue has added to his nailedness

          1. Sakib.jafar
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            I’ve got Cancelo in

  27. camarozz

    Is TAA as an expensive defender regarded as a 'heavy hitter'?

    Or is that only true for attacking players 11+million

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Certainly a premium, I've captained a couple of times over the years (TC once), but not normally in the conversation so maybe not a heavy-hitter..., but maybe he is.

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      As he pretty much matches that price-set for points over a season, he's fairly described as a 'heavy'hitter'.

  28. Lindelol

    Rate my wildcard please

    Ramsdale / Foster
    White / Cancelo / Alonso / Rudiger / Livra
    Salah /Raph /Sarr / Biss. / Brownhill
    Lukaku / Ronaldo / Antonio

    It's 4-3-3
    Later I will reduce Ronaldo and upgrade one mid and being in TAA (I am ready to risk going without TAA for the next three fix)

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      8 - I'd lose Ron now

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I have both Lukaku and Ronaldo. They both blanked GW6 and it was like having the worst sh*ts ever seeing two players combined 24m which could end up ruining many other GW's points wise.

      Fact is, GW6 will not be the only GW both blank.

      Go with either Lukaku or Ronaldo. Gives you the opportunity to add another mid priced midfielder upgrading Bissouma and adding a 3rd decent forward or upgrading Rudiger to TAA instead so forth.

  29. G Banger
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    One week punt before wildcard:

    a) FWD up to 8.1 (have Jiminez / Antonio)
    b) Shaw => Rudiger

    Money no object, saka or smith-rowe?

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Saka

    2. Bertonian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Saka then. Can move to ESR if it goes bandy. Saka more nailed with Pepe lurking in the shadows

    3. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Saka
