Gameweek 7 Wildcard team reveal: Lukaku over Ronaldo plus double City and Arsenal

Ex-FPL winner Simon March: How to avoid getting carried away with your GW1 picks

After a Gameweek 6 score of 44 and a fourth red arrow in succession, I embraced the ‘Sunday night Wildcard’ cliche and finally pushed the button. For this article, I’ll be sharing my current draft and a bit of the thinking behind it.

First off, a word on the timing of the Wildcard. While I had my fair share of yellow flags and underperforming players, it was mainly the concern that I would be priced out of the team I wanted that made me choose this Gameweek. As you’ll see, this necessitates greater investment in the Liverpool v Man City fixture than I’d ideally have liked and a Gameweek 8 Wildcard would not only have avoided that but, also, have allowed me to better mop up any problems that might occur during the preceding international break. 

However, neither of those factors seemed significant enough to warrant holding off and, equally, there are opportunities to be gained from tapping into some of the good Gameweek 7 fixtures.

Finally, I’m approaching this Wildcard with a fairly long horizon and am targeting the players and teams that I think can deliver for the foreseeable future. Equally I’m seeking enough depth that my squad can cope with the unexpected. My hope is that this will help me establish a reliable enough foundation that I can use my transfers progressively rather than reactively going forwards.

So, without further ado, here’s my current Wildcard draft.

Goalkeepers

The Kasper Schmeichel (£5.1m) / Danny Ward (£4.0m) Leicester goalkeeper rotation is a hill I’m willing to die on this season having already had it from the start. While they are not the most popular picks between the sticks (ooh that rhymes), at least not in the FPL community, they haven’t done badly, averaging 3.0 points per game so far, despite Leicester’s dismal defending.

Schmeichel is second for saves made, which helps him in terms of save points and bonus points but just the one clean sheet is not all that convincing a return. That said, I do believe Leicester will improve, particularly with the return of Jonny Evans (£5.4m), and, also, that it is more likely that they will sort out their defensive problems than some currently better-performing options are likely to maintain their defensive solidity.

Finally, at £9.1m combined (£9.0m for me), Schmeichel/Ward offers a strong certainty of a playing goalkeeper for a fairly low cost.

Defenders

My strategy for the defence is to get three near-to-nailed-on players from what appear to be the three best defences in the league (Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea) and then, ideally, leave them for the rest of the season so I can focus my transfers elsewhere.

      I would keep Toney. Seems to be playing well as main focal point and still dirt cheap.

        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 hours ago

        This, if you have someone who can come off the bench it's fine, if not you could get Azpi/Rudiger in for a hit.

    Ramsdale (Sánchez)
    Rüdiger Tierney Williams (Livramento Alexander-Arnold)

    Ronaldo Lukaku (Scarlett)

    How's it looking?

    Anything worth a hit? TAA to City or second Chelsea defender?

      Rudiger - semedo - alonso (cancelo, lowton)
      Saka-salah- sarr-gallagher

        1. Ibralicious
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 1 hour ago

          Semedo to marcal, SA to Ramsdale. Use cash to upgrade Gallagher

        2. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years

          Semedo downgrade and beef up that midfield. Frontline perfect.

      2. Ibralicious
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 2 hours ago

        Ben White or Matty Cash, regardless of price? Already have Tierney.

        Need to replace Bamford, but having a hard time deciding between the id-priced forwards available. Have $7.9m budget, so looking at

        A) Ings (7.9m) - proven goalscorer, average fixtures
        B) ASM (6.8m) - good form, average fixtures
        C) Toney (6.3m) - next two fixtures are hard, then take a turn for the better
        D) Armstrong (6.0m) - good stats , difficult fixture this week, then a sea of green
        E) OTher??

        Note that all except Ings will allow for upgrading Christensen to Cancelo next GW.

        Cheers

          Jimenez?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 1 hour ago

            Txs, guess he should be considered too. Nice fixtures, but only one goal so far, so think we'll have too see more attacking threat

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Probs Toney and think of it as a longer term move.

          1. Pompel
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 1 hour ago

            WYes, won't pay off this GW as will be for a ht, but need to look at longer term plans and team structure

        5. FPLord
          • 11 Years

          If you plan to WC soon Jimenez, longterm Toney

        It seems like the most popular captain choices are all up against in form defences this week. If you go down the table to find someone in attacking form playing against an average or worse form defence, the first pairing you get to is raphinha. Maybe sarr. Anyone going with a cheap captain?

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

          Antonio count? But yeah he’s facing a decent defence too and had European football last night.

          I’m between Antonio or Lukaku. Got half an eye on doubling down on my terrible Alonso purchase and capping him.

          1. Sharkytect
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 1 hour ago

            Antonio right up there for form and popularity. But Brentford defence has been very good before playing Liverpool

            Alonso won't come on for a cameo I'd assume, so could be genius with Lukaku(vc)

                  You got any wildcard? could use some GW8

                  1. Deulofail
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 1 hour ago

                    I do, but I'm not tempted right now. Salah doesn't have amazing fixtures anyway.

                    1. Thinkering like a Boss
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 1 hour ago

                      Salah is basically fixture proof...He has really nice early fixtures, why not have him earlier?

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

          Rather doubt the captain choice

          Palace have conceded once at home - to a duff free kick by the keeper. They haven't even been looking like conceding. This is Leicester after an away Europa tie playing away.

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

            Should add that I started the season with a captaincy rotation targeting Palace. Now off it. Don't especially rate the attack still but the defence looks to be among the strongest non top 8 defences.

          2. Deulofail
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 hour ago

            Tempted to switch to Lukaku, but they've only had 3 games at home. And they've conceded 8 in their 3 away games, so they have it in them to ship 'em, just as Vardy has it in him to score 'em

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

              They can ship them but 75% of those were set pieces and it was Chelsea Liverpool and West Ham away.

              Not convinced by Vardy this week is all I'm saying. That said I'm not sure I especially like anyone this week. You can make much the same argument for Southampton as Palace (only they're away).

        Can I survive one more week with this?

        Sanchez
        White - Livramento - Shaw*
        Benrahma - Salah - Greenwood - Torres - Jota
        Ronaldo - Antonio

        Bench: all injured and possible Shaw wont play too.
        Good change that Greenwood, Jota and Torres wont start. Livramento have Chelsea.

        Pros: I have 1 FT.

        A) WC
        B) Take -4 to get 11 out and hope Jota, Torres and Greenwood play/start.

        If B) Probably doing Torres and TAA > Chelsea def and Raphinha/Saksa for -4 and next week active WC. Dont like hits before WC, but now its most likely just -2. Also players I want in have already rose, so cant catch any price rise.

          Mate I had the exact same team as you and I just wildcarded.

          Get rid of Jota, Greenwood and Torres, because I bet you have a bad feeling about them now, just like i did

          What you leaning towards doing ?

          1. Strchld
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 hour ago

            Depends a lot Oles presser and what is a situation with Shaw. If he is fit to play, probably saving and taking one hit.

        2. House Frey Wedding Planner
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 hour ago

          In a similar position of questioning whether to hold out for one more week then wildcard.

          Even though it goes against FPL etiquette, I'd take the hit and replace TAA and your 5th defender for 2 x Chelsea defenders. There isn't really a defence there at the moment.

          You can reset your team after gw8

          1. Strchld
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 hour ago

            Really would like to wait a week, yes.
            Atleast I have to take a hit If I dont hit WC. My team value is very low because dont want to make early transfers.

            I think that one Chelsea def and Raphinha is good and just trying to get 11 players out.

              For those holding of to WC gw 8 because you would have 3-4 players different..

              If you WC this week do you think your new team outscore your current team by more than 8?

              Best defender up to 4.6, playing this week but probably last on the bench going forwards? Coady, Lowton, Duffy/Veltman, someone else? Can’t decide!

              Guys is Cancelo still a big rotation risk given Zinchenko due to return ?

              1. CABAYE4
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 1 hour ago

                Normally he’s not someone I go for for that reason but have made an exception on my WC because:

                1) Zinchenko doesn’t have a firm return date and historically has had a few injuries with slower than expected returns.

                2) City only have 3 full backs and Cancelo has the advantage of being able to play both sides.

                3) City’s next European games in midweek are benign so would expect Cancelo to be rested in one of those and the LC.

                I could well be wrong and am trying to predict the unpredictable in Pep but I think he’s worth it atm.

              With Trent and Ayling out, I'm down to 10 men.

              Was planning to WC next week, and I think I'm still set on that, but is it worth swapping out Ayling for a Chelsea or Wolves defender for a 1 week punt hit this week given I'm down to 10 anyway? If so, who?

              I have enough ITB to afford any defenders under 6.3m.

                Just play ten?

                  2 months, 1 hour ago

                  Obviously that's the other option.

                  It's a risk v reward thing isn't it. I should make back 2 of the 4 point hit immediately (as long as they don't concede loads) given I'm down to 10, and then clean sheet odds are quite high and potential attacking reward added on.

                I am exactly in the same situatuon.. thinking to play 10 and ok.. but is smarter to bring rudiger for auling for a hit…
                It’s more good some player to do something and take something then stay with 10..

              For one gameweek only, which Chelsea defender would you choose?
              1) Azpi
              2) Alonso
              3) Rüdiger

                Alonso, highest upside

                  2 months, 1 hour ago

                  More risk of not playing though?
