Fantasy Football Scout wins ‘best editorial’ at Football Content Awards 2021

Fantasy Football Scout has been voted as the ‘best editorial’ in Fantasy Football for 2021.

Scout scooped the accolade at the Football Content Awards, which took place at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London last week.

The competition in our category was fierce with Fantasy Football Hub, All About FPL, Planet FPL, Who Got The Assist?, Fantasy Football Fix, The Draft Society and Fantasy Football Geek all nominated.

We’d also like to congratulate FPL BlackBox and The FPL Wire for their fully deserved wins in the ‘best video’ and ‘best podcast’ categories, plus Let’s Talk FPL who took home the silver award.

But, most importantly, we are also hugely grateful for the ongoing support and interest (not to mention votes!) from our readers, viewers and listeners, who have for years helped us maintain our position as the number one resource for Fantasy Football.

We would not be where we are now without you, and we cannot thank you enough.

        No honestly well done. The way you solved that case linking the dead clown with a pink finger nail up his bum to the nun that worked part time at manicurist for the blind was incredible.

          Not to forget the case where the priest went missing, and after intense search, was found in a motel in Prague with the girl he met in Brazil.

            What the one who owned a ping pong table and an ice cream van?

              Yeah, and sold coke behind the ice cream van.

                Not bad stuff but kept cutting it with vanilla milkshake. Didn’t mind the flavour but my kids kept stealing it.

          That reminds me of some other cases that need to be solved 😀

      No but I got his soul at a Sky Bet sponsored school fete in the raffle.

    Is this why the website has kept collapsing all week - you were all on the beer celebrating?

      Sounds like the case. Open Controls starting to make a bit of sense now.

        I bet it was Az & Mark were pouring champagne all down the back of the servers with their ties around their heads after the ceremony

      Typical!! Every player I get gets injured it seems!! Rotten luck, hope he’s back sooner rather than later!!

      1. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah he's been excellent for them and will be a big miss, kind of glad I got rid of Gray now, doesn't even look like DCL and Richarlison will be back this weekend either so attacking options are dwindling

          Yeah her has mate, I got him and Townsend in last week for this game!! Typical!! DCL, Bamford, Alonso loses his place, Rudiger last week Injured and now him haha, it’s never ending bad luck for my tream atm

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Ah unlucky mate, been a crazy few weeks for injuries and rotation, I don't think there are many players that haven't had empty spots for a while but that's some really bad luck

    2. FOO FIGHTER

      Unfortunate but easy swap to Mbeumo for me.

    4. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years

      Same here. Rotten luck all season. Got Richarlson when he got injured aswell. Incredible really

  8. JPSpurs
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Good for one more week?

    Sanchez (Foster)
    Cancelo, Rudi, Livra (White, Veltman)
    Salah (v), Son, Sarr, Gray, ESR
    Lukaku, Antonio (ASM)

    Every week I want to use my WC but all I can think of is sideways moves such as Antonio, ESM, Sarr to Vardy, Hwang, Sarr and then don’t think it is worth it.

    2. Camzy

      Yes. Just watch the European games in case there are injuries.

    Is Mendy going to end up being the defensive pick from Chelsea?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Could be one of them. Almost went on wild card, but hey ho

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      That odd benching is pretty annoying at that price, even if its one in 10 games.

    damn, that dacoure injury severely dents toffees assets appeal, he's the one that got the ball to gray and townsend

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I am still going to stick with Gray for now. Will have to move Doucoure on once we have confirmation from Benitez.

    2. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      DCL and Richarlison should be back

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Rafa said DCL is close but DCL will need more time.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Sorry, Richa is close.

  12. FOO FIGHTER
    • 2 Years

    With injuries happening regularly, having a decent bench is crucial now.

    What to do here
    2FT 0.8ITB

    Sanchez

      Ron to Vardy and upgrade Kovacic, Sarr or one of your defenders seems to most obvious option

  15. FOO FIGHTER
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Doucoure red flagged. Drop incoming.

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Really not many options in that price range either that's not Mbeumo or Everton player

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah, makes your midfield selection even more of a pain in the bumb.

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Klich ruled out as I have Raphinha, not sold on Kovacic, might look for Jones if he seems like he'll start, same as Elyounessi

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            I am not sold on Raphinha with Leeds defensive woes and Bamford still out. They are not doing well at all.

            1. Thomas Magnum
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              I'm not all that sold on him either, but I understand people here love him. I got him in on WC mostly due to the lack of alternatives at the price range and now without Doucoure there's one less option

              1. Thomas Magnum
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 15 days ago

                I think in general Leeds are in big trouble this season though

                1. FOO FIGHTER
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 15 days ago

                  I will most likely do Doucoure to Mbeumo. Also thinking about going heavy 4 at the back 442 meaning Antonio or DCL may have to go. Premium defenders looking better than mid priced midfielders.

  16. ResultatFar
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Thinking of doubling up on Chelsea defenders (I currently own Azpi) for a -4. Who to go for?

    A) Chilwell
    B) James
    C) Chalobah

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      A

  17. waltzingmatildas

    Slightly regretting the wildcard this week now, cannot pick a team I'm happy with and is different enough to those that have already done it

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      What’s wrong with it?

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Something like this crazy? 1.5itb

      Sanchez Foster
      TAA Cancelo Chilwell White Livra
      Salah Mane Raph Mbuemo Brownhill
      Antonio Nacho Toney

          Cheers, just feel like I need to do something a little bit different....Lukaku could obviously hurt

          1. JVALDEZ
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            Can see him blanking at this rate

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        It’s ok I suppose. Obviously the attack is cheap. Why don’t you change Sanchez?

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Well the premiums aren't performing so it's tempting to go against the grain
          Who for? Considering Raya

          1. NateDog
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 15 days ago

            If you're on WC I'd change him just for the next 2 and get him back in, might as well with him facing City and Liverpool

            1. waltzingmatildas
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Fair point, I'll take a look. Thanks

    Congratulations team!! Maybe someone on this thread can answer this for me?
    Right folks I need some help please. I’ve got 2 teams in one of my wife’s Leagues and one of them is in loads of money Leagues, but I’m convinced they’re cheating. They appear to have their teams linked to some sort of App that automatically does their team and transfers, as both teams are identical and their transfers are all done in the early hours at exactly the same time (32 over the season at exact times and both in same place in the world after 8 weeks). To me that’s cheating and I don’t see the point if you’re not going to do your own team. Anyone know how they’re doing it please? Cheers!

    1. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      You have TWO teams and play in illegal money leagues and you say others ate cheating? 😆

      1. Rupert The Horse

          What’s so funny?

            Well, what he just said….

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Yes I agree it would be funny If it was true I guess … very funny.. but thankfully it ain’t

      2. Wild Rover
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Just read again, they are not your teams right? Just report them.

        1. PompeyUpNorth!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          That’s my intention but I’d like to find out how they’re doing it if possible then they’re nailed.

          1. Wild Rover
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            FPL will be able to see what is happening if you link both teams. Loads are doing it, they will be familiar with the issue.

            1. PompeyUpNorth!
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

              Ah right cheers..

      3. PompeyUpNorth!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Eh?? What you on about?
        Number 1 I ain’t got 2 teams and number 2 I said ‘one of them is is loads of money leagues’ Doh!!!
        And yes they are Cheating!

        1. Wild Rover
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Your comment was badly worded. ' I’ve got 2 teams in one of my wife’s Leagues' clearly suggests they are your teams.

          1. PompeyUpNorth!
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Oh right, all my fault them ha ha ha! No worries.. it made sense to me, but I get your point.. if I had 2 teams I defo wouldn’t be telling anyone on here though. It’s either a huge secret or not that well known as most on here probably do their own teams I guess.. I’ll get to the bottom of it and report them as you suggest

          2. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Yeah. Truly bizarre way to attempt to get your message across.

            1. PompeyUpNorth!
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Oh right, was it? All I did was ask a question which I’m beginning to wonder why I bothered now but hey ho. I’ll get some English lessons off one of the Teachers who is cheating then I’ll be sorted for next time ta..

      You've got 2 wives? That should be causing you more stress...

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        It certainly would!

    3. Annie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I wouldn't worry about teams that have made that many transfers so far

      1. PompeyUpNorth!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        A lot of them were used with a wildcard to be fair but that’s what nailed it for me. The exact timings. Whatever they’re doing is obviously not that we’ll known though I guess which is good

          did wonder about WC. Are they actually doing well?

            In the grand scheme of things no not really. (164000 in world although I’d be happy with that). But they are doing very well in their Leagues and are top of the school kids League which pi55es me off tbh… one is normally good and the other 1 not so, hence the alarm bells ringing a few weeks ago

              1 month, 15 days ago

              I also don’t see the point in doing a team and letting someone else do it all season.. totally bizarre. Why bother if you’re clearly not into it?

                yeah, same as the people that blindly follow Youtubers. "it's my first season Dan and I'm 20k. This is great"

                  Ha ha yes agreed .. I’ve checked the Terms on FPL and whatever they’re doing is illegal so I’ll report them I think. At least I’ll get to move up 2 places in the World if they get binned off! Ha ha

  19. RamaJama

    Which 2 to bench?

    A) Livra BUR H
    B) White AVL H
    C) Christensen NOR H
    D) TAA MUN B

    1. ResultatFar
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Never bench TAA

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Still think ve’s got the lowest cs chances of the 4, and not many attacking returns lately, only 2 assists so far this season and 5 weeks since last

        1. ResultatFar
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          True, but he always has the highest chance of returns of any defender. His hauls can come against anyone

    2. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      AB

    3. JBG
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I'm really considering benching TAA as well... But out of those I actually think White, don't see Arsenal keeping a CS and regret bringing in Ramsdale on my WC tbh.

    4. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B for sure
      C might get taken care of if he starts on Wednesday vs. Malmo

    5. Terry the Terrier
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Agree bench White

  20. Redhawk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Tempted to pull the trigger on this craziness:

    James, Dias, Foden, Lukaku, Antonio out
    Chilwell, Manquillo, Son, Vardy, Jesus.

    Would give me:

    Ramsdale Foster
    TAA Chilwell Cancelo Livramento Manquillo
    Salah Son Raphinha Mbeumo Brownhill
    Vardy Jesus Toney

    1. Totti
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      no way mate
      you're ruining your gameweek before it starts
      you need a wildcard then

    2. Rupert The Horse

  21. LC1

    Afternoon all,

    Saka and Tierney seriously let me down last night! Was expecting a nice jump up the ranks.. but oh well!

    Any suggestions on the below would be much appreciated;

    Sanchez
    TAA Cancelo Tierney
    Salah Saka(*) Greenwood Rahpinha
    Lukaku(C) Antonio Jimenez

    Livra Williams Sissoko

    1 FT 1m in the bank.

    Thinking Greenwood is the glaring option here. Maybe Greenwood to Foden?

    Thank you!

    1. hustler7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Greenwood to Foden looks good, but wait for champions league games before making the transfer. Or you could put Mbuemo in and upgrade Tierney to Chelsea defender.

      1. LC1
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah will wait until CL games.

        Good shout.. that fool let me down last night and I can't stand having Arsenal players in my team,

        Chilwell best bet?

    2. Totti
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      saka -> Mbuemo

  22. Totti
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    need your help guys

    who to bench as I'm really in a complete dilemma

    ramsdale
    dias cancelo azpi rudiger livramento
    salah raphinha mbuemo townsend (doglas luiz )
    lukaku jimenez antonio

    0 FT and 2.3 itb

    1. 3 Girls 1 Schlupp
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Livra, you will be loosing out on maximum 6 points. However, the odd of him keeping a CS is more than Jimenez or Townsend scoring but they have more odds of hauling, so more at risk benching the attackers

  23. hustler7
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    On WC and I think it comes down to:

    A) Foden Gallagher Vardy
    B) Son Raphina Ings/Antonio

    Which do you prefer?

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B

    2. Totti
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B

    3. ResultatFar
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Son, Mbuemo, Vardy an option? If so, that would be gold

      1. hustler7
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Unfortunately not already got Mbeumo...and not enough cash.

        Raya/Foster
        TAA Cancelo Azpi Duffy Livra
        Salah Mbuemo Brownhill xxx xxx
        Lukaku Broja xxx

        1. Bojam
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Broja an interesting pick. Looked good at the weekend but with Adams, Armstrong, Redmond, etc. all competing for two forward positions is he too much of a risk? The next four fixtures are great if he can hold down a starting spot.

          I'm tempted on a WC but leaning towards spending the extra on Edouard who has a longer run of good fixtures through to GW20 (barring City in GW10).

  24. Pub Crawl to the Townsend
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Anyone got bernardo on the watch list? 5.0 cheaper than KDB and getting good minutes

    1. dadoune30
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Gundogan is back now

      1. Pub Crawl to the Townsend
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Don't think it makes much of a difference, we all know City players are minutes risks no matter who's fit

    2. Totti
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      don't think he's a good fantasy asset

      1. Pub Crawl to the Townsend
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Agree at the minute, prefer raphinha just one to keep an eye on

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Always thought he would lose minutes with him wanting to leave the club

      1. Pub Crawl to the Townsend
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Doesn't seem that way now, seems a pep fave, mad how quick things change

        1. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 15 days ago

          He's had an excellent season so far, he's playing a very different role to that of a couple of seasons ago where he was fantastic and he's less involved in the final passage of play but he's become quite important to them in midfield. Will be interesting to see if he keeps his place with Foden, KDB and Gundogan available now

  25. CAVEAT KING

    Anyone want a really dark horse pick?
    Cornet of Burnley passes the eye test big time and is a class above his teammates.
    Good fixtures, playing very far forward, he seems someone to watch.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      I’d love one as I just got dumped.

      1. Joey Tribbiani

        made me laugh way too much

      2. CAVEAT KING
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        We will end up with a painted horse. (smile)

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      oh pick.

    3. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I agree and was actually thinking about him, reminds me a bit of ASM, a very talented player that's in a pretty poor team, looks like he played as a forward last week too but even when wide v Leicester he looked very good before his injury

      1. CAVEAT KING
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        It is nice to see not just me who sees the talent.

    4. pingissimus
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      He does look class doesn't he? Can see him doing nicely but really tough to pick him at 6.0. The class above his team mates is the killer I guess.

      1. CAVEAT KING
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        6m is the issue I agree but if there is a punt around, it as that price point. I think making up ground in FPL is when to get on and off this level

    5. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Problem is the team I guess. Bit like McNeil being a decent player but never a reliable FPL points scorer.

      1. CAVEAT KING
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Dyche always finds a way. Yep, the team is a problem but a turn in fixtures is on the cards.

  26. Rupert The Horse
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    As my time is very important and time is money, I’m watching Scotland vs Papa New Guinea in the cricket. PNG have the oddest language I’ve heard. Sounds like someone talking whilst on a pogo stick.

  27. Random Name

    I pray Sancho escapes utd as soon as possible. Another quality player about to have his career setback by that club

    1. Pub Crawl to the Townsend
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yeah agreed. Want lingard to get out of that club as well. They see him as a useful squad player but he could easily start for alot of teams in the league

      1. Random Name
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Lingard is grossly underrated. He clearly loves Utd too much to leave but he's better off at another club yeah

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yeah totally. I already read that Man U are in for Bellingham. I don’t know why players continue to go there. Surely by now, even the thickest of the thick will know that’s where your career goes to die.
      Only players that should ever go are the Zlatan, Cavani, Ronaldo over the hill type player.

      1. Random Name
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Spot on. They've literally ended the careers of generational players - Falcao and Alexis Sanchez come to mind. They almost ended Lukaku and Di Maria's too. Took Depay years to recover and become the star player for Netherlands we all knew he'd become. Zaha never recovered.

        Bellingham shouldn't come back to England for any club other than City, Chelsea and Liverpool right now

        1. Goro Majima
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Sanchez?! United didn't end his career, he did that himself. Di Maria didn't want to be in England anyway and lost it when his house got burgled (terrific player though). Lukaku was decent but never great at United and Zaha seems to have recovered okay actually. I take your overall point though in truth, we do not have a coaching setup that improves players. Will be interesting to see how Dan James does under Bielsa.

      2. CAVEAT KING
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Hit the nail on the head. My view is a massive mistake getting Ron who wants everyone to bow down to him. Great footballer, shocking influence.

    3. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Are you saying he should play every week, just like Lacazette at that other club?

  28. Bojam
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    How long do we think Duffy will keep his place? Webster back soon. Lamptey made his first appearance off the bench so Veltman could move into the back 3. Has Duffy done enough to make himself first choice alongside Dunk?

    1. Pub Crawl to the Townsend
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Id say he's done enough yeah. They started Duffy, Dunk, Burn and Veltman against Norwich. All natural centre backs

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Hard to know for sure but he's been so good that it's hard to see him lose his place. Veltman is the one I'd worry for, he's been very poor so far this season

    3. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I'm learning my lesson from James Justin last year.

      Pick up these budget guys and play them until they no longer start. They can sometimes put together some strong performances and keep their place.

      I think it's Duffy's spot to lose. Veltman looks like the one who could miss out going forward.

      1. Bojam
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Good point, thanks.

      2. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I've been meaning to sell Duffy for about 3 weeks now, but emergencies elsewhere keep coming up. I'll probably end up keeping - and playing him every 3 GWs along with Livramento evermore.

  29. Toothis
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Been trying to hold my WC for a bit longer but think it has to happen now, do you guys agree this team needs more than a triple transfer and -4?

    Would probably be looking to bring in Ramsdale, TAA, Mbuemo, Lukaku and will have a fair bit left to spend...

    Sanchez / Foster
    Cancelo, rudiger, Semedo, white, livramento
    Salah, Greenwood, grealish, Raphinha, Benrahma
    Ronaldo, Antonio (obafemi)

    1. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I don't think you'd need a WC, I'm guessing 4 transfers would be -8? You could keep Sanchez (he has 2 rough fixtures but good ones after that), then something like:

      Ronaldo to Lukaku
      Greenwood to Mbuemo
      Semedo to TAA

      1. Toothis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah that is exactly what I'm umming and ahhing over. But West hams fixtures aren't great either... Don't want to take a -8 but happy to do the odd -4 if it let's me hold my chips for longer.

        Last year I had triple spurs when their game got postponed for covid and it wrecked my season a bit! So I'm keen to stay as flexible a sposs for as long as poss.

        Just don't want to lose ground to the new template. Still unsure on Lukaku tbh so maybe I'll punt up to kdb or son too.

        1. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 15 days ago

          That sounds fair on not having too many eggs in one basket, I'm always of the same opinion and find it keeps things varied too. Honestly I think a -8 is fine in this scenario if it means keeping your WC, those 3 changes are pretty significant ones and if you downgrade Grealish or Benrahma you could upgrade Obafemi to a playing striker next week (maybe Broja if it looks like he might get fairly regular starts)

  30. Camzy
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Fellow Reece James owners...

    What do we do if he plays the UCL game tomorrow and then doesn't start vs NOR? I can cover with Livra this week if he's a no-show but the fact James puts up random cameos is very frustrating and if he doesn't start NOR he becomes a bit of a problem pick going forward.

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Hold him. I'd say he could easily start both

    2. Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      sell him ,i think mendy might be the play

    3. RedRo
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I think I’d just get rid regardless of anything else if you don’t have more pressing issues. Chelsea full backs are just not worth the gamble.

      • CAVEAT KING
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        My personal view is James and Alonso get easier fixtures. At 5.5 not the end of the world if he does not okay. Most of us have a cheap enabler. I think we cannot afford to have a 4.5 mid or forward though if we pick wing backs in general. I think Chalobah has been the best Chelsea defender over the last few weeks, outside of the keeper of course.

      • CBonci
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I would strongly consider shipping him at that point, and if I wanted to keep a Chelsea wingback I’d move to Chilwell (currently on Azpi and James due to Rudi injury news prior to GW8). His potential is massive but he’s so frustrating to own and I can’t trust Tuchel at the moment to optimize his attack. I am saving a FT this week to address any concerns like that.

      • Bojack Horseman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I think between injury and suspension we've not seen the best of him yet. Still think he'll end up being the best of their fullback choices.
