Team Reveals

FPL Team Reveal: Who I’m replacing Romelu Lukaku with in Gameweek 9

After eight Gameweeks of the 2021/22 campaign, I’m currently sat just outside of the top 100k overall with 531 points.

Since I last checked in, I played a successful Gameweek 7 Wildcard, which I’ve included below alongside my Gameweek 8 set-up and week-by-week history of the season so far.

Now, ahead of Gameweek 9, my priority has been finding a replacement for the injured Romelu Lukaku (£11.6m). There are other issues in my team, like Adam Armstrong (£6.0m), but with a decent enough looking squad, I’m happy to wait a week or two before moving him on.

So, armed with £2.0m in the bank following last week’s frustrating Son Heung-min (£10.2m) > Phil Foden (£8.0m) transfer (don’t ask…), no forward is out of reach.

For context, here’s a shortlist of the options I considered.

    Play Gallagher (NEW) or Sarr (eve)?

      Gallagher

      Sarr will play striker, I'd go him.

      1. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Maybe … Tinkerman said yesterday that right wing was his best position.

    3. Boom XhakaLacaSaka

      Gal

    Ronaldo and Saka to Havertz (C) and Toney -4.

    Yay or nay?

    Fixtures for Chelsea and Brentford feel too good to pass up. Hit should hopefully pay for itself.

    1. Jafooli
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Yeah, do it…l

    2. Boom XhakaLacaSaka

      Y

    Just brought in Vardy, in about five seasons never had a goal from him. Always bring him in on a hot streak and then he immediately goes cold.

    This feels no different. Apologies to all owners….

      same here, but was 0.1 off kane so went vardy even though it kinda feels wrong

    A or B?

        Two decent players vs one (playing for a team in tatters)

      2. Jafooli

    Kai worth a cappo over Salah?

    1. Jambot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Sounds like regrets to me. I’m bringing Kai in for Jota with my transfer but I’m not even sure I should be doing that. Deffo going to captain Mo and vice Vardy not considering Havertz

      1. Jafooli
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Yeah, fair one, might make Kai vice cappo for the thrills 😛

    2. Sarri-ball

    3. jackruet

      Not at all. Auba is a decent pick

      My Ex split up with me because I was too obsessed with fantasy football. It was a shame as we were together almost 3 seasons.

        1 month, 13 days ago

        Hahah - keep them coming - some nice ones.

        I had this one too: Fantasy football is cool because you end up rooting for things you didn't care about before. Like a COVID breakout eliminates the whole of Chelsea's before the Monday night game

  11. pingissimus
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Nice team that - decently off centre.

    Kane could be a dynamite differential if he fires and the axis with Son is broken so that they don't share goal assists as consistently as they have done previously.

    B. Toney (LEI), or
    C. one of Cancelo/Dias (bha)?

    Currently benching Townsend, but it's Watford, so...
