FPL Gameweek 7 round-up: Saturday review, injury news and the things we learned

It was a low-scoring day for many Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers, with blanks for many of the most-owned players and the widely backed captaincy picks.

Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) contrived to hit the post from three yards en route to a fourth blank in five appearances, while Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) owners had to swallow a ‘one-pointer’ after the Manchester United forward was surprisingly named among the substitutes at Old Trafford and reduced to a 35-minute cameo.

Our usual, more detailed Scout Notes will follow for all of the day’s games but in the meantime, our resurrected Scoreboard series rounds up the key goings-on from the day’s Gameweek 7 fixtures.

The graphics below are taken from LiveFPL, Ragabolly’s excellent and ever-expanding website, and our own Premium Members Area.

GOALS, ASSISTS, PROJECTED BONUS

INJURIES AND BANS

Anthony Martial (£8.4m) picked up a knock in Manchester United’s draw with Everton, a match that Luke Shaw (£5.4m) was passed fit for after illness and injury.

Ben Mee (£4.9m) was a surprise no-show when the Burnley teamsheet was released, with the first-choice stopper picking up an ankle injury in training that his manager doesn’t think is serious.

The Clarets lost a further player during the clash with Norwich, with Matej Vydra (£5.3m) suffering a knock.

Watford’s defeat at Leeds was further compounded by the loss of two players to injury, with Josh King (£5.5m) and Francisco Sierralta (£4.3m) both limping off. Xisco Munoz doesn’t yet know the severity of either issue.

King’s departure saw Emmanuel Dennis (£5.3m) move into a centre-forward role, following his recent stint on the left flank.

Leeds lost a key player of their own, with Stuart Dallas (£5.3m) hobbling off – Marcelo Bielsa said after full-time that it was too early for a prognosis on the Northern Ireland international.

Joe Willock (£5.9m) lasted little more than half an hour of Newcastle’s defeat to Wolves before succumbing to a hip injury.

Bukayo Saka (£6.3m) limped out of Arsenal’s match against Brighton and Hove Albion late on but Mikel Arteta said he “should be fine.”

On the ban front, James Ward-Prowse (£6.4m) was sent off for serious foul play against Chelsea and will miss Southampton’s next three matches. One of those games is in the EFL Cup, however, so he’ll be back in Gameweek 10.

THE THINGS WE LEARNED

FPL Gameweek 7 round-up: Saturday review, injury news and the things we learned 8
NOT TOO BIG TO BENCH

Reaffirming Bruno Fernandes (£11.9m) as the club’s penalty taker one week, benching Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) the next… a cynic might suggest that the last fortnight has been some sort of power play from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and/or an audition to be the new voice of Sage.

The Norwegian however cited the need for freshness ahead of kick-off when asked about his decision to leave Ronaldo and Paul Pogba (£7.8m) out of his starting XI:

“Wednesday night was a big effort, big emotional and physical output, so we needed to freshen it up when it’s an early kick-off.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Whatever the motivation for Ronaldo’s demotion to impact substitute in Gameweek 7 (he is 36, lest we forget), it was a notice to FPL managers that even the Portuguese club legend isn’t going to be immune from the odd rest over the coming weeks and months.

WE HAVE A PLAYING £4.0m GOALKEEPER

Ben Foster (£4.0m) had started the last two Premier League matches for Watford but it wasn’t abundantly clear whether he was the undisputed number one at Vicarage Road, given that Daniel Bachmann (£4.5m) had been plagued by a knee injury over the last fortnight.

Passed fit by the Hornets on Thursday, Bachmann returned to the matchday squad against Leeds – but was only among the substitutes, with Foster keeping his place.

The veteran was repeatedly called into action against Leeds and one of the few to emerge from the defeat with any credit.

Watford haven’t kept a clean sheet all season so he’s probably not an option for anything other than emergency bench duty, especially with the fixtures turning iffy over the next eight Gameweeks.

IS HWANG/RAUL THE NEW JOTA/JIMENEZ?

Bruno Lage praised the link-up play between Hwang Hee-chan (£5.5m) and Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) ahead of Saturday’s win over Newcastle and the pair duly combined for both of Wolves’ goals on Saturday.

It certainly wasn’t a vintage attacking display by Bruno Lage’s side, who had fewer shots than all top-flight teams bar Watford on Saturday.

And a conversion rate of 60% (three goals from five shots) isn’t obviously sustainable for Hwang in the long term.

But Wolves having a more clinical striker up top is a welcome change from the profligacy we’ve seen so far in 2021/22 and a potential boon to Jimenez, who has created more chances than any other FPL forward this season.

The Mexican is the only player among the top 10k’s 20 most-owned FPL assets who has delivered a double-digit haul in Gameweek 7 so far:

STRONG BENCHES ARE NEEDED

Not so much a lesson learned as a weekly reminder, in this instance – and not for the first time – from Thomas Tuchel.

Managers whose teams are playing in Europe and are still in the EFL Cup face two games a week from now until the end of the calendar year and the irksome rotation is well underway.

On top of Ronaldo and Pogba at United, we saw Marcos Alonso (£6.0m) and Andreas Christensen (£5.0m) dropped to the bench for Chelsea’s win over Southampton.

STAT WATCH – GAMEWEEK 7

We’re historically used to seeing Andros Townsend (£5.5m) score screamers from distance but the winger earlier in the week discussed the work he was doing under Rafael Benitez to get closer to the goal.

And, wouldn’t you know it, the ex-England wide-man is joint-top for shots in the box in Gameweek 7 so far and at the top of the pile for expected goal involvement (xGI).

Townsend is now joint-second among midfielders for FPL points alongside the man who teed him up for his fifth attacking return of the season at Old Trafford, Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.6m).

He’s also top of the FPL form table, which calculates a player’s average score from all matches played by his club in the last 30 days.

Marc Cucurella (£5.0m) turned in a man-of-the-match showing in the evening kick-off at the Amex and, as is not always the case, the maximum bonus was dished out to the best player on the park.

No player has created more chances than the Brighton wing-back in Gameweek 7 so far and, since his debut in Gameweek 4, only two FPL defenders have registered more final-third touches.

    So what’s the deal with the Brazilian lads, there’s a chance they all miss out next gameweek or something?

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Yes, the last Brazil game is at 1:30 AM Friday UK time, so about 36 hours before the first game of GW8.

        (Friday the 15th that is)

          Hmm okay I see, wasn’t sure if it was something like that or a quarantine issue. So maybe best stay away? I’m looking at Raphinha and Jesus in my drafts

          1. Major League Shocker
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 16 days ago

            If nothing else, definitely have a bench option who can cover. I've got Raph and haven't decided yet whether to keep or ditch on my WC. He'll probably have the same issue GW12 as well (although at least his GW12 fixture is on Sunday).

      Wonder if African players are also joined to another object,by an incline plane,wrapped helically around and axis?

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Fortunately, I think most African countries only have two matches in this IB rather than three.

    3. The Knights Template

      Will impact Raph for me, but I have the magnificent points machine that is Livramentoooo!

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Very nice, this seasons AWB from when he was at palace but with attacking potential!

    Sanchez / Guaita
    TAA / Jansson / Livramento / Marcal / Duffy
    Salah / Gray / Benrahma / Gallagher / Bissouma
    Ronaldo / Lukaku / Antonio

    1. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Downgrade ronaldo to upgrade defence? I’d wait to after the IB though as you’ll have plenty of cash! Also can hear more on bamford and DCL. Oh and on Trent

      1. SalahFingers
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Thanks, yeah I might just wait till end of IB.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Defence def needs a bit of work. Start there.

    3. Scholes Out For Summer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Ronaldo to Toney unlocks a lot tbh

  3. boroie

    New WC draft:

    Ramsdale
    Rudiger White Duffy
    Salah Son Grealish Raphinha
    Lukaku Antonio Jimenez

    Foster; Livramento Ajer Luiz

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years

      Very nice.

    2. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Unsure on Son as would wait until Kane starts firing. Can see wanting to be different / get ahead of the curve though

    Sanchez
    TAA,White,Livramento
    Salah,Fernandes,Benrahma,ESR
    Vardy,Antonio.Jimenez

    Bachmann,Mitchell,Bronhill,Ayling

    Havn't taken a hit all year.
    Fernandes-Grealish,Ayling-Cancelo,Vardy-Lukaku?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Lukaku the obvious move with those fixtures.

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Looks pretty nice for a -4.
      I’m interested to see if Foden ends up playing false 9 again. Might be worth the punt over Grealish.

    3. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Got WC? Probably don't want to be making big moves now if no WC.

      1. Will1988
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Yeah have wildcard left

    4. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Looks great to me. You have enough spare in the bank to hold off until after the IB.

      1. Will1988
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Good idea, i've been a bit better this year In not worrying about price rises early on, just in case injury or a rest. Which could happen to Grealish

    5. Scholes Out For Summer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Vardy to Lukaku, Bruno to Grealish/Gallagher

      1. Will1988
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Zaha even, something diffferent

  5. mcginnntonic
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Can get this team with a -4 - or should I wc? thanks

    Sanchez
    Cancelo Rudiger Azpi
    Raphina Salah Benrahma Sarr
    Lukaku Bamford Antonio

    I can address sarr next week if he looks terrible vs lpool, but had him in since GW4 so idm.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      No need for WC

    2. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Wc not needed

    Do we think Lukaku will rise tonight?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      He's on 100.5%. I've brought him in already.

    2. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      He did double Ronny's score

    4. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Only on 86% on FFFix interestingly

  7. nerd_is_the_werd
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Ronaldo + Varane + Bissouma ---> Son + Hwang + Cancelo (-4)?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Yep

    2. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      My plan was Ronny to Antonio. . What if gets 3 or more with Port? He didnt convince me the move would be a mistake today. Im gonna wait for whatever and injuries over IB

  8. MikeLowrey
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Would you WC from team A to team B

    A
    Bachman
    Christensen White Veltman
    Salah Jota Raph Benny
    Ronaldo Antonio Lukaku
    (Foster Gilmour Omo Ayling)

    B:
    Ramsdale
    Rudiger TAA Cancelo
    Salah Grealish Raph Doucoure
    Lukaku Antonio Toney

    (Foster White Livra Brownhill)

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      I would myself

    2. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Too hard to read. Time consuming up and down, up and down. I will say yes.

  9. The Reptile
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Is it worth swapping TAA out for Cancelo before the rise?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      I would do that.

      1. KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        why do you think that TAA won't be back after 14 days ?

        1. The Reptile
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 16 days ago

          He may be a bit off the pace especially with a groin issuev

        2. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 16 days ago

          It's a groin issue. They take longer to get back to 100%. With the upcoming fixtures I'm happy to give him a break until gw10 at least.

      2. Gabistuta
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Terrible advice before cancelo has even played. TAA could easy be back next GW

    2. clodhopper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      What if Cancello gets injured

      1. The Reptile
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Yes that's the gamble which is making me hesitate

    3. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      I wouldn’t do the move just because of price change
      Do it If you think he will outscore Trent

    4. DycheDycheBaby

      No

    5. Gabistuta

    Mendy
    TAA / Cancelo / Duffy / Semedo
    Salah / Saka / Raph / Kovacic
    St. Max / Lukaku / Antonio

    Steer / Benhrama / Manquillo

    Post Chelsea game rage + beer = -4 Cresswell > Cancelo and Bissouma > Saka

    Of course, now I have the fear Kova will get the bench next GW. Should I -8 to ESR? Crazy? Sober Up?

    1. JuanTP
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Ugh - Semedo on bench. Playing 12 might actually have hauled me a respectable total 😐

    2. Thomas Magnum

      I like the idea of waiting and seeing the City game first if possible

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        That would be best but price rises have stung me this season

        I kept Gundo a few weeks back instead of swapping for Greenwood and lost 0.4 as Gundo dropped twice and Greenwood double rose and also Greenwood's points...

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 16 days ago

          Tell me about it, I stupidly stuck with Harrison over Benrahma which lead to an .8 million price swing and not to mention the points as well

  14. Scholes Out For Summer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Currently thinking of doing this move: Sarr + Shaw --> Cancelo + Mbeumo (-4). Crazy to take a hit to get in Mbeumo when he has Chelsea? I fancy them to score tbh. ESR another option

    Sanchez
    TAA - Shaw* - White - Livra
    Salah - Gallagher - Traore*
    CR7 - Lukaku - Antonio

    Foster - Sarr* - Brownhill - Omo

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      No hit for me.

      1. Scholes Out For Summer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Cant make any upgrade on Shaw, no money itb is the issue

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 16 days ago

          As long as you frame it as "a hit to get in Mbeumo" then everyone will say no.

          If you frame it as a hit to fund Shaw -> Cancelo, then you may get a very different answer.

          1. Scholes Out For Summer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 16 days ago

            yeah thats a fair point. I guess hit looks bad since I'll be benching Traore

            I guess it comes down to Rudiger + Mbeumo or Cancelo/Dias + ESR for a hit this week and moving forward

        2. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 16 days ago

          Just not sure Mbeumo is worth -4. What about cheap Everton mid?

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      I like those moves, think they need to be done eventually anyways. And I think Mbuemo is probably the best 5.5 mid as well just wondering though if it’s best to do it now or if you can hold off until IB matches are done

      1. Scholes Out For Summer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        oh yeah its exact money now, so honestly probably wont be able to do this move cause aint no way im making transfers until the deadline. So ESR looking like the option I guess

  15. Thomas Magnum
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Current team has no Trent, no City and only Azpi from Chelsea, all the money is in Ronaldo/Bruno. All week I was set on bringing in this side on WC
    Ederson (Foster)
    TAA Cancelo/Dias Rudi (Livra Manq)
    Salah Raphinha Mbuemo Doucoure (Brownhill)
    Jesus Lukaku Antonio
    But after what’s looking to be my first solid green arrow I’m hesitant to change things up, thoughts? Can put my original team if needed

      I do like that team, however Raph probably miss the game back and Everton fixtures going bad.

      Depends on your current team really, how many transfers do you want to make?

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Appreciate the response, that’s my worry as well with Raph/Jesus, Doucoure is in as I currently own him so he’s worth .1 extra but will likely go if I downgrade Jesus to say DCL

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 16 days ago

          Current side is Sanchez 4.0
          Azpi Semedo Ayling Livra White
          Salah Bruno Raph Doucoure Gilmour
          Ronaldo Antonio Dennis
          1ft 1.0 itb

            Making the type of changes you're considering seems to me like exactly what the WC is for.

            Yeah to me, i think Dennis, Douc, Raph, Gilmour, Bruno Semedo Ayling can all go

            maybe not raph if you can bench him for Livra

    Far too early to be thinking about transfers, but for thought. 1.6m ITB

    Sanchez
    TAA / Alonso / Semedo / White
    Salah / Jota / Raphinha
    Ronaldo / Antonio / Toney

    Steele // Traore / Livramento / Bissouma

    Plan for next week is to sell Semedo for Cancelo/Dias. Will likely also ditch Traore for a -4 because is deadweight now.

    Sound okay? Alonso/Raph/TAA/Jota I guess could be doubts for GW8 (although maybe Mané dropped for Watford due to his African IB travel?)

    I will want to move Ronaldo onto Lukaku, but think I'll have to hold for Leicester since he ain't getting benched again short term & Leicester are struggling.

    No need to move early for Cancelo (price rise) right?

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      I like your plan, and you’re right Ronaldo might come good now and be hungry for goals after 2 blanks now. Wolves lads probably have to go as well so can’t fault the moves. Would wait if possible for after the city game like you said to bring in one of their players

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Thank you.

        I have 1.6m ITB so will have leeway on desired moves. I think I should let the IB play out and not rush given the short term issues in my squad!

        I won't captain Lukaku anyway until Norwich, so I week left in Ronny despite some value loss.

        Not panicking is giving me only short term small red arrows through fairly precautions bits of misfortune, feel I'm only a week away for a boost.

      I like your plan.

    3. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Sound plan. Doing the same Semedo move.
      Just monitor Raphinha situation and if he’s able to return in time

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Semedo's got me two CSs in four. Can't be mad at that but glad you're joining me in that!

        Raphinha is a hold for me regardless - GW9-11 too good! But yes, factors into my bench equation.

    4. DycheDycheBaby
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Good plan! I feel I will do the same with Semedo. And my ML rival has Lukaku, so I think Ronaldo is a good differential now for GW8.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 16 days ago

        Cheers. But worried everyone says it's good. Always goes opposite, ha! Perhaps more chill people on at night 🙂

        Agree RE: Lukaku/Ronaldo. In all honesty they probably score similarly next GW. Depends how Brentford set-up vs. us... but Brentford do have a long time to prepare. Can say the same against Leicester though I guess

  18. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    How's this for a WC team, friends?

    Ramsdale / Foster
    TAA / Cancelo / Rüdiger / Duffy / Livramento
    Salah / Raphinha / Benrahma / Townsend / Luiz
    Lukaku / Jesus / Antonio

    If you knew James and TAA were fit for GW8 then you would 100% keep them, right?

    1. Henryyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes

        Need to use it at some point as dropping steadily from 250K to 700K now ... crap decisions along the way 😆

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Yeah you could drop 5-6

  21. Moose™

    Best def for 4.5?

    1. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Take your pick from White, Duffy and Livramento

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Livramento Duffy Tomiyasu/White Lowton

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      White

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      I have had Ben White come off the bench in 3 of my last 4 GWs due to injuries/suspensions.

      5 > 7 > 2 (bench) > 7

      Tricker fixtures to come but above and beyond what I expected.

      As for catching newer ones. Livramento has a few decent fixtures (although yet to win still), Leeds weirdly do.

      But remove GW8 for the equation and so do Brentford. Maybe Raya is the pick in that defence, but still worth a look?

  22. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    7 months, 16 days ago

    WC team cost me 99M only but without TAA. Keep 1.5M ITB for flexibility on TAA (when fit) or for Lukaku>Ronaldo as needed? Or just spend?

  23. Taegugk Warrior
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    1FT.
    A. TAA to Cancelo
    B. Toney to Armstrong
    C. Sarr to Saka

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      C

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Cancelo, I like!

  24. Maraudingmane
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Good to see kneejerking in full force. I captained Lukaku like many, and yes annoying that he blanked, but he hit the post, scored when offside and had Werner steal one from him. Surely that is encouragement enough?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      The goals will come. At least his team is good unlike Ronaldo's.

      1. Maraudingmane
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 16 days ago

        I know it is to be expected on here, but people talking of getting rid of him need their heads read IMO

  25. Alisson WondHaaland
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Uhhh Cancelo rising tonight 🙁 Why cant no one make early transfers and then we'd all be happy

  26. Ruinenlust
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Why is Lukaku rising? Blanked 3 games in a row

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 16 days ago

      Nailed on centre forward for one the strongest teams in the league with a great run of fixtures but I think you already knew that.

  27. MaRooney 5
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 16 days ago

    Would you WC this:

    Sánchez, x
    Rudi, Shaw, Livramento, Veltman, Amartey,
    Salah, Raphinha, Jota, Benrahma, Bissouma
    Lukaku, CR7, Perica(!)?

    1.8m ITB
    Thanks in advance!

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Shaw to Cancelo might be enough.
