Suspensions

Which FPL players are nearing a one-match ban?

Those who keep an eye on the Suspension Tightrope widget on our homepage will be aware that the yellow cards are steadily racking up for several Premier League players.

The respite provided by the October international break seems like a good time to take stock of the disciplinary situation around the top flight, particularly as two Fantasy Premier League assets (FPL) are now just a booking away from a ban after only seven Gameweeks of 2021/22.

The yellow card amnesty is not until after the completion of a team’s 19 league fixtures (more on that later), after which the threshold moves up from five to ten bookings.

Those Fantasy Premier League assets already sitting on three and especially four cautions still have a long way to go before they are in the clear, then.

ON FOUR YELLOW CARDS

Sarr underlines differential potential as Chelsea earn another clean sheet 3

The two players who are currently a solitary yellow card away from suspension are Watford’s Emmanuel Dennis (£5.3m) and Tottenham Hotspur’s Oliver Skipp (£4.5m).

Budget forward Dennis is the big name from an FPL perspective, sitting in over 10% of squads.

Those four bookings haven’t come out of the blue, either: he has committed more fouls (20) than any other Premier League player this season.

ON THREE YELLOW CARDS

 1

There are some notable names among the throng of players on three bookings, too.

Paul Pogba (£7.8m) is the most selected, boasting an FPL ownership of 21.4% at the time of writing.

The Frenchman is behind only Dennis for fouls conceded in 2021/22, with 16.

Brighton defender Joel Veltman (£4.4m), bench fodder option Josh Brownhill (£4.5m) and the game’s joint-third highest-scoring midfielder, Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.6m) are part of this group, too.

The full list is as follows:

WHEN ARE THE CUT-OFF POINTS FOR SUSPENSIONS?

FPL Gameweek 7 Scout Picks built on Chelsea triple-up

As we mentioned in the introduction, the yellow card threshold is raised to ten after 19 league fixtures.

For all teams, that currently means following the completion of Gameweek 19 on Boxing Day.

Chelsea’s involvement in the Club World Cup in December would presumably cause the Blues to have a Blank Gameweek, however, and would likely push their 19th league fixture back – although there are suggestions the tournament could be moved to February.

And any other Premier League postponements, whether they be weather-related or Covid-enforced, would naturally change the situation further.

The threshold for ten yellow cards is after 32 league matches, which will be April at the earliest.

Players collecting ten bookings before that point will serve a two-game ban.

Punishments for yellow card accumulation are competition-specific, whereas suspensions for dismissals cover all competitive matches.


Keep your eyes peeled on our Suspension Tightrope widget over the coming weeks and months, as we’ll be updating that after every Gameweek to keep you informed on the latest disciplinary developments.

    I can't get on to the FPL site. It just says "loading".

    1. GreennRed

      For how long?

      1. Willesden Mariner
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        For 30 minutes. I'm on a train and now saying site blocked by a filter, but it still doesn't work using my own data.

        1. GreennRed

          Working OK for me on Android in Chrome or Samsung. Strange not working on train network or your mobile data. Possibly train seeing at as a gambling site and blocking it. The phone is same for both networks. Close all open apps, browsers and disconnect anything to phone and try FPL again or same after shutdown or restart. Will surely be fine when you step off the train though!

    Is Benrahma still a decent FPL option? Saw the highlights vs Brentford. Looked pretty good and came close to scoring a couple times.
    Looking to let Antonio go and bring him in as my 4th mid. Allows me to bring in Jimenez for Antonio(rather than have both), Toney as 3rd striker and use the funds elsewhere.

    1. Puntillimon

      Looks lively. Hopefully gets more clinical.

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Yeah. Looks a decent option at that price, though fixtures turning a bit is an issue.

    Initial plan if I don't decide to WC. Sounds too crazy? Wouldn't I be left behind?
    0.1 short for Greenwood to Foden...

    GW8: Greenwood to Arsenal/Everton mid
    GW9: Ronaldo to Lukaku
    GW10: Benrahma to Mbeumo
    GW11: Sarr to Son

    Sanchez/Steele
    TAA/Cancelo/Rudi/Duffy/Tsim
    Salah/Greenwood/Benrahma/Raphinha/Sarr
    Ronaldo/Antonio/Scarlet

    1. Firmino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      It's okay but when do you plan to wildcard? Could be a situation that your team is always good enough not to wildcard.

      1. Diamondgeezer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        In December Chelsea go to the World club cup and Afcon starts in Jan. Add in Christmas rotation and this would be a good time for wholesale team changes.

        1. Atimis
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Yeah, could be a valid point, been close to the WC now but not 100%convinced tbh

        2. Firmino
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Easy to plan when we already know this

  4. Shark_Sandwich
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    random question please - who do we think will be on pens for Southampton while JWP is out

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Probably Adam Armstrong

  5. Konstaapeli
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Here's my whack at WC. How's it looking?

    Ramsdale - Foster
    Dias - Cancelo - Rudiger - Duffy - Livra
    Salah - Son - Raph - ESR - Luiz
    Lukaku - Jimi - Antonio

    Have two issues but overall I kind of like it.
    - No TAA.
    - Need to play one of ESR, Duffy or Livra every week.

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      No TAA i big issue so I wouldnt do that.
      Dias to TAA and if need funds than make Jim to Toney.

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        0.2 short of that. Would need to go Hwang.

        1. Stoichkov#8
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Well, not ideal too but you need to give up someting to get Son.
          I think its not worth it but thats just my opinion.

          Maybe Duffy to Manquilo? also Brownhill is 4.4.

          1. Konstaapeli
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Could do this..

            Ramsdale - Foster
            TAA - Cancelo - Rudiger - Manquilo - Livra
            Salah - Son - Raph - ESR - Luiz
            Lukaku - Antonio - Toney

            1. Stoichkov#8
              • 6 Years
              7 months, 20 days ago

              Very nice!

    2. mgrea
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Get TAA. The rest is solid.

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Yep. But it's tricky as would need to downgrade Jimi to Hwang or drop Son to get him.

        1. mgrea
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          I'd downgrade Jimi to 4.5 and upgrade Luiz to Mbuemo or Gray, going 3-5-2.

    3. ebb2sparky
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Very similar to my team. I think you have slightly more money though. I’ve got TAA, Townsend and Toney for your Dias, Raphina and Jimenez. Whilst I agree Raphina and Jimenez are good picks I’d prefer to have TAA.

  6. pingissimus
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Just been watching the Palace Leicester highlights back

    Mitchell may yet become a thing 🙂 He really does look a proper wingback now and attacking returns look likely. Before yesterday he was second among budget defenders for touches in final third - that won't have got any worse.

    Also playing a few draft games this year. Brentford defenders are all still on the market. That could change! In two jiffies Palace and Brentford will be very close to the top of the ticker especially if you delete tricky fixtures as obvious benchings.

    Hi....I have landed on this wildcard with exact cash. Can I have thoughts please?

    Mbeumo rotates with a defender. Can see toney coming in for jiminez eventually

    Ramsdale foster
    Taa cancelo dias rudiger livra
    Salah raphinha saka mbeumo brownhill
    Lukaku antonio jiminez

    Thanks

    1. mgrea
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Looks good, I've had Jimmy for the last 3 weeks and am looking to ship soon personally.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      That is almost exactly the same as Andy LTFPL's WC from last week. Boring. The big advantage of WC'ing this week compared to last is that you have better opportunity to go after City assets. Make use of that advantage.

      1. Flynny
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Which city assets tho?

        Burnt badly last season with Foden. Impossible to know when he will play

        Boring is generally good I find. Thanks

        1. Atimis
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          I would punt of Foden if I could

          1. Flynny
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Thanks .....Will weigh it up..

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Boring is generally good I suppose. But it literally is just Andy's team with TAA in for Azpilicueta.

          Lots of people copy his team so you won't make much ground. At least try some areas to have some differentials. Could try someone like Watkins over Jimenez - fixtures are not that bad, he's got great stats. There's also Saka who I'm not very convinced is a great FPL asset. Both of those slots give you opportunity to differentiate and take some calculated risks.

          1. Flynny
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Cheers....I really haven't copied his team tho....although I take your point on saka and jiminez

          2. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Camzy I'm thinking the best front 3 are Vardy Lukaku and Antonio/Jimenez what do you think?

            Ramsdale
            Dias Cancelo Rudiger Azpi Livramento
            Salah Mbeumo Benrahma Smith Rowe 4.4
            Lukaky Vardy Jimenez

          3. Goonsquad245
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Could not disagree more with this at this stage in the season. All about maximising points - if that's going boring and template then so be it. Can't understand why you'd want to find differentials for the sake of it.

    3. Valdez
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Exact same team as me aside from Gray for Mbuemo

  8. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Thoughts on this WC?

    Ramsdale, Foster
    Trent, Cancelo, Chilwell, Rudiger, Livramento
    Salah, Son, Jota, Raphina, Townsend
    Antonio, Jimenez, Davis

    Bank 0.2m

    1. mgrea
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Not a fan of Andros long term, would rather Gray personally. I think you'll want Kaku for the next few too.

    2. pingissimus
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      The big one is obvs no Lukaku against Norwich in 9 - he will be huuuuugely owned and captained there for good reason.

      1. Flynny
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Pretty good I'd say....prefer 3 forwards tho...

    3. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      You need 3 forwards they offer incredible value I'd pick 3 out of Lukaku,Vardy Antonio and Jimenez. I don't think TAA is essential anymore Liverpool's fixtures aren't that amazing so he shouldn't get many clean sheets. I rather Azpi over Chilwell as he's more nailed.

    4. Stimps
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Id ditch Jota personally and upgrade Davis

  9. mgrea
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Sanchez
    Rudiger White Livra
    Salah Raph Sarr Jota
    Jiminez Antonio CR7

    Foster - Sissoko TAA Semedo

    0.4 ITB 1FT

    What would you prioritise here?

    1. Firmino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Ronaldo -> Lukaku or Sarr -> Saka/ESR/Mbeumo

    2. Bavarian
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Jota > Saka
      Semedo > Cancelo

  10. Stoichkov#8
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    On WC. I know big at the back is popular atm but will probably bench one of them every GW anyway!

    Ramsdale | Foster
    TAA | Cancelo | Rudiger | xxx | Livramento
    Salah | Raphinha | xxx | Mbeumo | Douglas
    Lukaku | Antonio | Jimenez

    1. Azpi/Dias + Saka
    2. BRE def/Duffy + Grealish/Foden

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      1 with Dias. Him and Saka both are nailed. Duffy/Grealish/Foden more likely benched.

    2. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 20 days ago

      1, Dias

  11. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    WC Differentials I'm throwing around

    GK - McCarthy
    Def - Laporte, Chilwell, Walker
    Mid - Foden, Mbeumo, Townsend, Mount, Mane
    Fwd - Armstrong, Watkins, Bamford, Jesus

    The rest I think are fairly highly owned on WC. Mbeumo starting to become template but his overall ownership is still less than 1.5%...
    Not really considering any real differentials in defense tbh. Just variations on the standard Che/City options. The fixtures and their respective defenses are too good and Livramento is the best 5th defender by a million miles.

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      I'm considering also Foden and Jesus but the fear of getting Pep'd is real.

    2. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Doing greenwood or jota to foden myself. Pep will be pep, but will go for it.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        I'd lose Greenwood. Jota has started every game this season bar one and the last two with Firmino on the bench. I think Jota remains a pretty decent pick just unlucky to not have gotten returns.

    3. Stoichkov#8
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Jota is interesting pick on WC. Started vs City so it suggest he may be first choice. Sadly he wont play 90min even if starts but will get more minutes than most City mids for example.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Yeah I dunno why I left him off. I have already had him in one of my drafts. The fact he's on Intl duty while Firmino isn't though is quite bad. Means he very likely doesn't start GW8 and then he has MUN after that.

        1. Stoichkov#8
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          I dont have in my WC draft atm but may get him back at some point. We have transfers 😉

    4. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      What about KDB?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Oh yeah forgot him by mistake. He was in my first GW8 WC draft and I'm still considering him.

        1. Winston.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Ownership less than 2%, on penalties… but not sure, should I get KDB or Lukaku. What do you think?

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Lukaku. Look at those fixtures again. bre NOR new BUR. I would seriously consider bringing in Benteke if he were nailed on with those fixtures.

    5. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      I would have Son in there as well

      1. Diamondgeezer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Son and KDB have been forgotten about. They will soon remind us. Man city have their annual 5-0 thrashing of Burnley after the international break. I can imagine KDB will be heavily involved.

        1. Gazza2000
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Yeah just looked as Spurs fixtures and i want definitely want Son in for that run starting GW12

    6. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Not considering DCL? One of the first names in my WC draft

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        I'm not. Haven't thought about him. Fixtures aren't that good tbh and I think my forward line of Lukaku, Antonio, Toney is fairly locked in. Toney's fixtures from GW10-12 are really good. Getting on early is probably the way.

      2. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        GW19. I don't see myself going in earlier than that

    7. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      I think Mane is quite possibly the second best premium from a points perspective. It makes it hard though because he is literally uncaptainable whilst Salah is fit.

  12. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    how is this for WC?
    Ramsdale
    Dias, Cancelo, Rudiger, Azpli
    Salah, Foden, Raphinha, Benrahma
    Antonio. Lukaku
    Sanchez, Hwang, Livra, Douglas Luiz
    0,3 ITB

  13. tommo-uk-
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Another WC Draft......442 mainly.

    Ramsdale Foster
    Cancelo Dias Rudiger Chilwell Liva
    Salah KDB Raphinha Gray Douglas Luiz
    Lukaku Toney Scarlett

    KDB obviously a high value 'risk', but now hes fully fit you would imagine hes one of the most 'nailed' city midfielders, if thats even a thing anymore!

    1. ebb2sparky
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      I’d be a little concerned having both Cancelo and Chilwell with that bench but i guess KDB could make it worthwhile.

  14. Unconstitutional
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Thoughts on this WC team?

    Ramsdale
    Dias, Chilwell, TAA
    Raph, Mbuemo, Salah, Son, Gray
    Lukaku, Antonio

    (Foster, Livramento, Duffy, Scarlett)

    1. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Chilwell not nailed…

    2. Razor Ramon
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Like it. Maybe Doucoure or Townsend over Gray.

  15. tommo-uk-
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Seen a lot of posts about Son vs Newcastle.

    Cue 1-0 Newcastle win.

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Did briefly consider Ronaldo to Kane if I don't wildcard....

  16. pingissimus
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Updating my watchlist

    Bailey very near top of it now.

    Handy fixtures post IB really and ever falling price and fascinating differential.

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Is he back fit? Looks exciting

      1. pingissimus
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Supposed to be back after IB

        Need to see a start first of course but he's on close to 0 ownership. Feels like he could be a natural switch out from Benrahma/Gray or upgrade of 5th mid on my set up.

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Are you sure about those fixtures being good? ars, WHM, sou, BHA just doesnt fill me with confidence since they have got multiple points scorer. Cant see them scoring more than 1-2 in any of those games.

      1. pingissimus
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Mixed rather than good

        Waiting slightly to see how Arsenal defence stands up next week. An interesting thing happens if you delete the City and Liverpool fixtures from the ticker and look at a possible longer hold.

      Where do you see him playing if Villa persist with 352 - or do you think the formation is temporary?

      1. pingissimus
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        He's barely got on the field yet of course so need to see him start.

        Ducked Villa completely early season as they were in so much flux and the same may well still be true now as Buendia hasn't exactly featured heavily. An attack yet to come together for sure.

        Watchlist material only.

        Unlike Holmes though I can see them putting 3 goals past most opposition. Rather think most of their upcoming oppo have been outperforming in defence. Not sure why WH is a red fixture for example for attack 😉

    Guys,
    Would you wc this team? Bought Lukaku and Christensen in this week for a hit which didn't go too well!
    *potential transfers out

    Sanchez* Foster
    Shaw* Christensen* Ayling* White Livra
    Salah Raph Benrahma Sarr* Gilmour*
    Ronaldo* Lukaku Antonio

    WC team would be something like (1.5 itb):
    Raya Foster
    TAA Cancelo Azpi James Livra
    Salah Raph Saka Mbuemo D.Luiz
    Lukaku Antonio A.Armstrong

    1. mgrea
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Absolutely not. I'd go Sarr to Foden for free

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Not got the money for that. Would need to downgrade CR7 to upgrade elsewhere, for a hit

        1. mgrea
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Ah crap read your ITB wrong. See if Christiansen looks like he'll play closer to the time, that would be my deciding factor. If he does Sarr to Gray.

          1. waltzingmatildas
            • 11 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Cheers! I think a wc would definitely improve the team, but I don't think it is necessarily needed.

    2. Firmino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Yes

  18. We Go Again
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Ronaldo + Scarlett -> Jimenez + Antonio for 2 FT? Was playing 442 until now

  19. Il Capitano
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 20 days ago

    1FT 0.5m ITB

    Sanchez Steele
    Shaw White Rudiger Livramento TAA
    Salah Jota Raph Sarr Gilmour
    Ronaldo Antonio ASM

    City defender the priority here?

    A) Shaw > Walker/Laporte
    B) Ronaldo > Lukaku
    C) Both (with Cancelo for Shaw) (-4)
    D) WC

    1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      A, Laporte but Pep is Pep

  20. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Have both Antonio and Benhrama and don't think I want to double up any longer, which one to go for?

    a) Antonio > Hwang (use money to bulk up defense e.g. back line of Alonso, TAA, Rudiger, Cancelo)
    b) Benhrama > Foden

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      B by a lot.

    2. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 20 days ago

      B

    3. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Tut I was hoping the consensus would be A.
      Will look into numbers, cheers

    Any comments to this WC draft…?

    Ramsdale Foster
    TAA Rudiger Dias Cancelo Livramento
    Salah Jota Raphinha Mbeumo Gallagher
    Lukaku Antonio Hwang

    1. mgrea
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Jota to Foden if you have any ITB. Benching headache each week with Gallagher and Hwang, I'd downgrade Hwang to 4.4.

      1. Winston.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        I prefer to have strong bench, not worried about that..

    2. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Jota replacement, plenty of options at that price point, maybe but not too much wrong with rest

    3. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Great team but your bench may outscore your 11 in some weeks

  22. jackruet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Christensen is a hold?

    1. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      I would, Thiago Silva will not be back on time so can see him starting against Brentford

    2. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 20 days ago

      hold

    3. Thescaff
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      He's started every CL game & vs Liv & City in the league.
      Smells like 1st choice to me

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        First choice is Chilwell Rudiger T.Silva Azpi Reece

        Everybody else who's started has done so due to the unavailability of someone in that first choice lineup, or due to rests

        Christensen has gotten more starts than usual due to the T.Silva extended break at the start of the season, Reece red, and now Reece injury (pushing Azpi to RWB)

  23. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    I'm thinking which one from Gray, Townsend, Doucouré, Saka and ESR to get so went to understat.com and checked the stats. Townsend really looks like a standout pick.

    Worth a punt? Or go for Arsenal mid due to the fixtures?

    1. mgrea
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Gray
      Saka
      ESR - Townsend
      Doucoure

      In that order IMO

      1. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Gray ain't looking good stat wise

        1. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          He's looking really good on the pitch. Gets rather unlucky with service to him sometimes, which doesn't reflect well in stats

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      I kinda like Townsend short term. Maybe 2 weeks and then switch to ESR or Mbeumo.

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Yup. I'm going Gray to Mbeumo GW10, Antonio to Toney GW11

  24. MysticMac17
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Thoughts on this squad? Did Sissoko to Mbuemo with my 1Ft last night but probably shouldn't have rushed it.

    Sanchez
    Christensen Rudiger Matip Duffy
    Salah Raphinha Gray
    Lukaku Antonio Ronaldo

    Subs: Livramento, Mbuemo, Sarr

    I have a deep squad at least if something goes wrong but expect lots of benching headaches down the line. The lack of a city defender could become an issue

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      I'd have done Sarr to Mbuemo last night leaving more MITB to upgrade Christensen to City D. Can you do Christensen to Dias or Cancelo now ?

      1. MysticMac17
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        I have 0.6 ITB so can do Christensen or Matip to Laporte/Walker down the line

  25. Puntillimon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Mane gonna be out for GW8?

    1. PlayPercentage
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Why do you say that? Is he injured?

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Vaccines

  26. PlayPercentage
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    What to do with Torres?
    With Aguero leaving, you would expect him to get more game time.
    Hasn't started in the last 3 GWs. But two of those were against top 4 opposition.

  27. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    Do you see Chelsea keeping Brentford out?

    Say, Rudiger over any of these:
    TAA vs Watford, Cancelo vs Burnley, Duffy vs Norwich?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Yes. Would play all 4. Can see Watford score in Ranieri's first game but Trent should get attacking points.

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        My attackers have good fixtures too. Well, they're playing defences who don't do clean sheets atm

        So it's three of TAA, Cancelo, Rudiger, Tierney and Duffy. Meaning I should prioritise the worst attacks as opponents, right?

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          That is up to yourself. Depends who your attackers are. The randomness says you might get 2 CS of that back 4 mentioned but one or two of the unCS fruendly opponents will keep a CS too. You've a nice backline there. White v Palace looks good too.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Brentford at home. They have only conceded 6 goals this season so they are not the worst team at the back.

      I fancy them to keep a cleanie vs CHE. Got in Raya to play devils advocate ha ha.

      Many say they fear going without Lukaku. I reckon Vardy outscores him GW8 to 12.

  28. Rupert The Horse
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Morning (just).
    Right, what’s the deal with players having to quarantine?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Good question. Plus what's the story with players possibly playing the day before GW8 deadline?

      1. Goonsquad245
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        Players that play (plus likely those in the squad) for the Friday game won't play GW8 - think it's as simple as that

        1. mynameisq
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Pretty much this, the last fixture for some south American teams is like a day or two before the league games

          Brazil and Argentinian players very very likely to miss the league games regardless of covid

          1. GreennRed
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 20 days ago

            Cheerd. Last game is not a friendly, thought they might be able to skip it, somehow, and just play 2. Will be down Martinez again but hopefully Foster keeps his place for a while.

        2. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Thank you. Shall we get a list together then?

  29. McSauce
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    GW 5 - 9k
    Play Wildcard
    GW 6 - 33k
    GW 7 - 93k

    didnt quite go to plan!

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 20 days ago

      Is Ronaldo plus Lukaku's price hindering you having a better balanced 11?

      1. McSauce
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        em I dont think so, my team value is strong. I think my Def is now light though yes.

        Ramsdale
        Duffy Rudiger Shaw
        Gallagher Salah(c) Gray Benrahma
        Antonio Ronaldo Lukaku

        Foster Sarr Coady Livra

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 20 days ago

          Selling either of them could free up funds to upgrade defence but defence isn't bad. Maybe Shaw and Gallagher to Cancelo and fodder?

  30. No Kane No Gain
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 20 days ago

    If TAA is confirmed fit, will he be worth a -4 to play ahead of Livra or cresswell?!

    Will captain Kane regardless...
