Mbeumo, Toney – or both? Which Brentford attacker to buy in FPL

Brentford are set to rise to the top of our Season Ticker for ease of fixture difficulty once their Gameweek 8 clash with Chelsea is out of the way.

Their (mostly) favourable run stretches from Gameweeks 9-19, which takes us right the way through to Boxing Day.

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers currently on a Wildcard ought to be seriously thinking about the Bees’ assets for this period, then, while the rest of us will likely be eyeing up Thomas Frank’s side once Saturday’s visit of the European champions has been and gone.

Frontmen Ivan Toney (£6.4m) and Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m), who are the two most-bought Brentford players of Gameweek 8, will be among those competing for our attention.

One is the penalty-taking talisman of their promotion-winning season, the other is a cheaper, ‘out of position’ midfielder who has matched his strike partner for goals scored in 2021/22.

But which of them is more deserving of our investment – and is there room for both in our FPL squads going forward? Our Premium Members article delves deeper.

MBEUMO v TONEY: THE COMPARISONS

Mbeumo stacks up very well next to Toney when it comes to goal threat, trumping or matching his strike partner for penalty box touches (32 v 29), goal attempts (17 v 16), shots in the box (11 v 11) and big chances (5 v 2).

Arguably the most eye-catching stat is ‘expected goals’ (xG) when penalties are taken out of the equation: Mbeumo’s figure (3.2) is almost three times that of Toney’s (1.11).

Toney has been the more creative of the two so far in 2021/22. Edging Mbeumo for chances created by 11-8, Toney has supplied four ‘big chances’ to his strike partner’s zero.

Indeed, the forward’s ‘expected assists’ (xA) tally is 1.91 to Mbeumo’s 0.54.

All of that leaves the two Brentford attackers pretty much level for expected goal involvement (xGI) overall: Mbeumo the greater goal threat from open play, Toney the man on penalties who looks like he may chip in with almost as many assists this season as goals.

MBEUMO AND TONEY: HOW THEY COMPARE TO OTHER FPL PLAYERS

    Against bigger teams, when brendford play on counter attack toney is playing as false 9 and mbuemo as the target man/Striker.

    Against teams like newcastle norwich and burnley toney will play just like last year.

    Toney or both for me.

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 6 hours ago

      This is my current thinking as well. Mbeumo furthest forward against top teams and Toney dropping deep. I'm hoping Toney plays a bit further forward in the "easier" fixtures and provides more of a goal threat. I'm on the double up.

    2. Dexters Laboratory
      • 1 Year
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      If I could afford it I'd double up

    3. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Like the thinking

  3. FOO FIGHTER

    Wilson and Eze back in full training.

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Callum?

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        Yes

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 4 Years
          14 days, 5 hours ago

          Too many forwards in that price bracket. Had Wilson in the beginning until he got injured. He will be involved in most Newc goals, but his injury record is pretty dire.

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      New owners healed his muscles instantly

      1. Brehmeren
        • 11 Years
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        This. They just soaked him in oil and he is good to go.

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 7 Years

      Lol

    2. Lindelol

      because there players weren't good enough

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    14 days, 5 hours ago

    2FT
    Rudiger, Benrahma > TAA, Torres?

    Current team
    Raya
    Rudiger, Christensen, Marcal
    Gray, Benrahma, Gallagher, Salah
    Ronaldo, Lukaku, Antonio

    Gunn, Livra, Willams, Gilmour

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Nah, just Marcal to Trent

      1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        0.5 away from that unfortunately

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          14 days, 5 hours ago

          Upgrade Christensen then

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Marcal or Christensen instead of Rudiger

    3. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      Rudiger out because of the flag? Wait until pressers

  5. FantasyHero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    Was looking into foden for city mid but should prob just go with grealish as it's the safer option?

    1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      pick one, have bench cover seems to the best option

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      I'm going Torres haha.

      1. Dexters Laboratory
        • 1 Year
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        Really?? Haha .. how many do you think he'll start in the next 4?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          14 days, 5 hours ago

          2 or 3. But I really think he starts Burnley and hauls.

          1. FantasyHero
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            14 days, 4 hours ago

            What helped you come to this conclusion?

      2. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        How did you do that, in the end, Camzy, Did Toney drop out?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          14 days, 5 hours ago

          Yes. Toney + Raph > Armstrong + Torres. But it actually depends on Raphinha going up. If he doesn't go up, I can't do it and will go for the boring safe option.

          1. Crunchie
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            14 days, 5 hours ago

            Been threatening all week, hasn't it? But i think Toney's price will rise back to 6.5 in the next couple of weeks.

  6. Dexters Laboratory
    • 1 Year
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    So all the tinkering comes down to
    A) Armstrong Manquillo
    B) Hwang Duffy

    Ramsdale Foster
    TAA Cancelo James Livermento X
    Salah Son Raphina Mbeuno Brownhill
    Lukaku Antonio X

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Hwang, Duffy. You'll need Duffy to cover Raphinha this week probably.

      1. Dexters Laboratory
        • 1 Year
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        Other Option is Son to City Mid and Hwang to Toney

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          14 days, 5 hours ago

          Keep Son imo. The more I think about it, the more nailed on he is for me. He's just reliable points and the fixtures are quite decent. Think Spurs do well away because of their counter-attacking setup.

        2. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          14 days, 5 hours ago

          I like B better than A, but i think Toneys price will rise again.

          You could go Son later after Lukaku fixtures turn a bit?

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      A

  7. C_G
    • 6 Years
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    Keep Alonso one week?

    And do Jota + Marcal ---> Son + Livra (-4)?

    1. Dexters Laboratory
      • 1 Year
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Do it

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      I would take the hit, it's long term moves

    3. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      If Jota is confirmed out then yes

    4. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Yeah like it

  8. Thomas Magnum
    • 6 Years
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    Worth dropping TAA for 3 or so weeks on WC in order to afford KDB, or no point scheduling in 2FT move later down the line especially cause it’s going into the next IB?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      TAA is fit now and has wat & BHA in the next 3 games.

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        True, he would be hard to go without but KDB has better fixtures over 3 games. High risk, high reward I guess

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      But it is TAA 🙂

      I am in the same boat as I WC last week, but wasn't until Friday. Have two Chelsea and two Man City, but it would be Chelsea players to go (one of Rudiger, Azpi) and a midfielder for a -4 hit, but i don't see a Chelsea CS this weekend.

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        Yes if I was you I’d drop a chelsea defender before a City defender. Think 2 city defenders could be a season long commitment the way they’re looking

        1. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          14 days, 5 hours ago

          Yes i am thinking the same, you can see my messy undecisive tam below lol 🙂

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Trent going nowhere, neither is Cancelo 🙂

  9. C_G
    • 6 Years
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    am I crazy to do:

    Jota + Marcal + King ----> Hwang + Son + Livra (-8)?

    1. gart888
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      I think a -8 is pretty crazy, but do like this move player for player.

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Each transfer in isolation seems fine but when you factor the -8 then I'm not convinced.

    3. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Hwang/Livra not worth a -4

      Just do one, I assume Livra for funds?

  10. Mahjongking
    • 4 Years
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    So taa will start vs watford right?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Yes

      1. Joey Tribbiani
        • 1 Year
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        Hey Jurgen, nice to meet you!
        How is Jota? Will he play this weekend?

        1. Mahjongking
          • 4 Years
          14 days, 5 hours ago

          No. Jota out haha

  11. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    Who’s the best Brighton defender sub 4.5 long term? Is Duffy nailed?

    1. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Nobody knows until Webster returns

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Long term, probably Veltman. Can play both RWB and RCB. Duffy has been one of their best players this season so it is his spot to lose

  12. C_G
    • 6 Years
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    my team, took a -4, have 0.2 ITB

    pls help or am i gtg?

    Sanchez

    TAA Alonso Livra White

    Son Salah Raph Benny

    Ronaldo Antonio

    Steele King Williams Allan

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years

      Gtg

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Probably GTG but be prepared for Alonso and Raphinha no shows this GW

    3. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      GTG if you want to get off the Alonso gravy train, then just go Cancelo/Dias. But if he plays well?

  13. DAZZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    Harvey Barnes. Could he be a good option now for 6.7? I fancy Leicester to find form soon enough and he could finally get back to his best.

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Iheanacho says hi.

      1. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        I think that will dmage Vardys output too (if last year is anything to go by)

    2. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Barnes has started almost every game. Iheanacho has also been available. And both started against Palace. I don’t think Iheanacho affect Barnes at all.

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        If Iheancho moves into the starting lineup consistently it will affect Barnes for sure.
        Maybe in a good way - maybe in a bad way (though hard to be worse than his start from an FPL point of view).

        I’d hold on Leicester attackers until they figure out how to win games - no idea what their best line up is (unless you want Vardy which is fine I guess).

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Need to see more from him before I go back there

    4. Ooh Ah Cantona
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      I have Nacho, Barnes and Vardy in my current WC team. The issue in the team as far as I can tell is Mr panenka Lookman muddying the waters.

      A or B

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      A and play Coady>Sbaw, or bite the bullet with B

    3. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      I’d do Doucoure over Saka. But that’s just me.

      B) is pretty nifty for a hit.

  16. The Mighty Whites

    14 days, 5 hours ago

    2FT, 0.0 ITB, thoughts?

    Sanchez / Steele

    TAA / Christensen / Coady / White / Livramento

    Salah / Raphinha / Gallagher / Gray / Allan

    Ronaldo / Lukaku / Antonio

    Thinking Ronaldo and Coady to Vardy and Cancelo - obviously wait and see on TAA and Lukaku first

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Keep Ronaldo against a Leicester defence?? I would personally

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      I wouldn't get rid of Ronaldo vs a poor LEI defence that have conceded the most shots in the box so far this season

    3. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Feels like freeing money from Ronaldo is the way to go long term.
      Maybe DCL is fit? He could be a great option for the next 4 or so.

      Coady > Cancelo looks great then.

  17. Mahjongking
    • 4 Years
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    Do you think lukaku will be fit against brentford?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      yes I think he will be fine

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Yeah, clearly just pulled out of a meaningless game to protect a minor concern he has been nursing for a while

  18. masewindu
    • 6 Years
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    I would buy Mbeumo next week but i want Rapfinha too... Chucking Dallas to Mbuemo gives me enough to move Shaw to Cancelo in 2 weeks

    Just need some advice if u don't mind. Who to start.

    Any GW7 WC's here? Need a little advice

    I left myself a benching headache, but i was inevitable as I tried to do Benrahma to Luiz last minute.

    I had hit the WC on Friday, due to just being fed up with Jota/Greenwood and injuries et all.

    The luckiest GW ever as it came back Jiminez Capt. I have no idea, whether if it was my mistake or not, but it produces a 30 point swing in my favour, after a miserable 44 in GW6.

    My team ATM. 1FT 0.1 itb

    Ramsdale (Foster)
    Rudiger, Azpi, Cancelo, Dias (Livra)
    Saka, Gallagher, Raphinha, Salah, Benrahma
    Lukaku, Antonio, Jiminez.

    A) TAA and Benrahma from Rudiger and Brownhill (may need that 0.2m) -4
    B) Hold
    C) Jiminez to Toney (Jiminez will be tired) and bench Toney with Raphinha

    I just feel a TAA haul coming on.

    I will be getting Toney for Jiminez next week if I do A or B, and later get in Son.

    My team is a bit mucked up, but don't mind a couple of -4's in the next 3 weeks because of the gains made last week.

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years

      ProbablyA, just not sure about Benrahma in

      1. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Thanks, Thomas, sorry, that is really Rudiger, Benrahma out to TAA, 4.5 fodder

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          14 days, 4 hours ago

          I don’t mind that move myself. TAA is a set and forget if not on WC, plus you pointed out you feel he’s due a haul and Chelsea might concede. Your squad still is deep enough with the fodder midfielder

    Can’t help but think Foden could be a big trap. Not nailed, a lot of games coming up for City.

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 6 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      could say the same about any of the City mids, but one of them will probably go big over the next 3 - and that's where luck comes in

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      I would say he nearly certainly is. Although, he could be good if you catch a haul then sell early before the blanks inevitably arrive

        14 days, 5 hours ago

        Yeah true. Like after 2 90 minute games for England would you be surprised if he was benched this weekend, I certainly wouldnt, and thats what’s putting me off of him. Is jack more nailed?

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          14 days, 5 hours ago

          I think Jack is certainly more nailed, but just not sure that necessarily makes him a better FPL option in the sense that he might be playing deep or might just be contempt with a ‘hockey’ assist of the assister. Of course if he’s on the pitch there’s always a chance he gets a return but just not sure about any City mid that’s not KDB

          It all comes down to who plays CF for City which is a lottery at the moment with Sterling, Torres and Foden able to occupy that spot. That is why I would not gamble on Grealish or Foden as only one can play LW.

          Jesus is looking like the only nailed City attacker tbf.

          1. Crunchie
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            14 days, 5 hours ago

            Jesus in Brazil so Torres looks good for a one week punt, but that is all it would be I guess

            1. Thomas Magnum
              • 6 Years
              14 days, 4 hours ago

              Yes I agree, could do Torres for a one week and then downgrade to Raphinha next week so you don’t have to bench him this week

    3. tangtastic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Totally agree, yet here I am considering a hit to get him in.

      That said, BigmanBakar (and others) have pointed out that Foden has often been rested for league games when European games are on (and even early stage cup games); apparently he only started 3 games in a row in the prem twice last season..

      If history is anything to go by, Foden will be rested ahead of Barcelona next week. Mahrez and/or Torres may end up playing instead...

      Cue 'Pep is a Fraud' posts...

      Agree. I used to enjoy playing pep roulette but there just seems to be too many options in the MF now to make it worthwhile. I'll probably avoid

    Schmiechel ward
    Taa Dias Tierney Duffy Livra
    Salah Raph Sarr Gallagher Sissoko
    Ron Antonio Jimi
    1ft 1.5m in the bank.
    Any suggestions?
    Was considering Raph> Foden
    Or Taa Raph> James Son

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Sarr> somebody

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      TAA is fit apparently and I wouldn't lose Raph given his fixtures. I'd probably save.

    3. Maverick 11
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Will probably save and bring in Kaku + Mbeumo next week

    4. Maverick 11
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      My only problem with Raph is are we going to have this scenario after every ib? If so might not be worth keeping?

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        14 days, 4 hours ago

        Only 1 more in November and then none for ages

    5. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      You could save and pay a 5-2-3, or do Sarr to another midfielder this week, Torres as a one week punt?, and Ron to Lukaku next?

    6. Maverick 11
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      Actually quite fancy Sarr to get something this week Liverpool will be without Allison and new manager bounce

    Afternoon pros. Any thoughts?

    Guaita
    James*, TAA, Alonso, Semedo, Livra,
    Salah, Jota, Raphinia, Gilmour, Sissoko
    Ronaldo, Jimenez*, Antonio

    1FT, 0.4 ITB

    Starting to think saving a transfer is the best option. Tempted by city assets but Jota has a great fixture, want to see if Alonso is back in the team and not enough cash to upgrade Semedo. They're the only 3 I'd think about moving on really.

    1. mattyb09
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      Jota is injured. Would definitely go to a City asset

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        14 days, 4 hours ago

        Is he definitely out? In that case I might just move him to mbuemo. Terrible fixtures but feel like he's a better long term option than Torres or Foden who I'd go for otherwise and he gives me cash for a Semedo upgrade next GW

    2. Ooh Ah Cantona
      14 days, 5 hours ago

      I'd be worried that none of
      Jota
      Alonso
      Raphina
      R James
      will start. I'd say it's more likely they each won't, than will, this weekend.

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        14 days, 4 hours ago

        Yeah this is the worry. Maybe Jota to mbuemo is the one and hope at least a couple of the other 3 play

  23. Ooh Ah Cantona
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    I thought I'm becoming more interested in their defenders

    Last 5 Burnley @ City results:

    City - 4 Burnley - 1
    City - 5 Burnley - 0
    City - 5 Burnley - 0
    City - 5 Burnley - 0
    City - 5 Burnley - 0

    Currently deciding on one of these hits to get a city attacker...

    a) -4 Benrahma to Torres
    b) -8 Ricardo Pereira & Benrahma to White & Torres

    Full team - OR 9,747 :
    Sa
    TAA Cancelo Rudiger
    Salah Raphinha Benrahma Gray
    Lukaku Antonio Jimenez

    Gunn; Livramento, Pereira, Sissoko

    1. Ooh Ah Cantona
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      Honestly, do not go there with F Torres. His FPL points are a mirage. I know about the "he could/ what if" but honestly, just don't.

      1. mattyb09
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        14 days, 4 hours ago

        Agreed long term...But short term, I think he is fairly safe to start this week and could easily bag a 1 or 2. Jesus a doubt as Brazil doesn't play until tomorrow. Will wait for pressers to determine.

    2. mattyb09
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      B) *White & Foden/Grealish

    3. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      See below
      Might as well throw a dart
      Eve if your player starts, he might get nothing in a 5-0
      Waaaaay too many options

    4. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      I say go for it.

      Bennie > Torres

      If it works you might end up top 1k.
      If it doesn’t you’ll still be super high up there in a great position.

      Use your great start as a chance to take some more risk (if you want).

    5. tuvok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I do think Pep will likely bring back a centre forward for this run of PL games. Sterling and Torres have shared that role so far, and god know Torres has demonstrated he is better at it. It sounds so logical to me but Pep Roulette is Pep Roulette

  25. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
    • 2 Years
    14 days, 5 hours ago

    Who to bench
    A) Shaw
    B) Raph

    1. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      A for me

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      B

  26. HuttonDressedasLahm
    • 11 Years
    14 days, 4 hours ago

    A. KDB
    B. Foden
    C. Grealish
    D. Sterling
    E. Gundogan
    F. Torres
    G. Mahrez
    H. Bilva
    I. Jesus
    J. Any other nailed player from another team

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      For me KDB is the cream of the crop, followed by Jesus (the former being better for all of the next 3 plus some with Jesus missing out this week) but then the rest is up to your risk appetite. If only for a week then F with price factored in but J for piece of mind

    2. mattyb09
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      Gundogan and Jesus both doubts...

      Back 4 + Rodri...

      So 5 of the remaining 7 will start.

      Most nailed in my mind:
      1. KDB
      2. Grealish
      3. Foden
      4. Torres
      5. Silva
      6. Sterling
      7. Mahrez

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        14 days, 4 hours ago

        We all know what is going to happen. Mahrez probably will start GW8 and haul like a mofo.

    3. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      D, F, G, and H to maybe start this week, Is E fit? A B C played twice in midweek, Lot's of J's though 🙂

  27. squ1rrel
    • 7 Years
    14 days, 4 hours ago

    GTG? Anything hit worthy?

    Sa
    TAA - Cancelo - Azpi
    Salah - Saka - Benrahma - Sarr
    CR7 - Jimenez - Antonio

    Steele - Livra - Allan - Williams

    When United's fixtures turn again, who do you think will be the key FPL option?

    Given the penalty situation, looks like Bruno may be the one.

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      Bruno may be the one, but Ronaldo may be the easy one. Especially for those looking to offload Lukaku and only have 1 transfer available and money ITB

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      I'm still on BruMo... As someone said "I'm so far behind the curve that I'm ahead of the curve".

    3. theplayer
      • 7 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      How's Bruno the one? He just missed the last pen and with Ronaldo scoring 2 pens last night, albeit for Portugal, I can see it being him stepping up next.

    4. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Have to wait to see what the new manager says 🙂

  29. TKC07
    • 2 Years
    14 days, 4 hours ago

    2 FTs. 0 itb

    A) Sarr & Semedo to Mbeumo & Walker/Laporte
    B) Sarr & Semedo to DLuiz & Cancelo + 0.2 (Start one among DLuiz / Livra every week)
    C) Gallaghar & Semedo to Brownhill & Dias (Start Livra every week)
    D) None of the above.

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      D) Sarr to Mbeumo

      1. TKC07
        • 2 Years
        14 days, 4 hours ago

        Actually I was prioritizing on getting at least one city defender.

        But, are you suggesting Semedo to Walker/Laporte on a FT not worth it?

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 4 Years
          14 days, 4 hours ago

          I like Wolves fixtures
