FPL team reveal: How I plan to get both Son and Kane in Gameweek 12

Phil Gill, aka @fplsorcerer, is an incredibly successful Fantasy Premier League (FPL) veteran who can boast of two top 1k finishers, six top 5k overall ranks and eight top 10k finishes.

Phil, 85th in the Career Hall of Fame, discusses his FPL team plans for Gameweek 11 and beyond in this team reveal article.

FPL Gameweek 10 Review

  • Points: 53
  • Overall Rank: 391k

It’s been a tough few weeks, with some big decisions going against me, but Gameweek 10 was an improvement from the previous week where I got stung by the Kai Havertz (£8.1m) captaincy trap. The only regret though was starting Ben Foster (£4.1m) over Aaron Ramsdale (£4.7m), who got 10 points, but at the same time, I was fortunate to get Tino Livramento’s (£4.5m) six off my bench to soften the blow.

While 391k isn’t too bad of a rank at this early stage, I feel it’s been a wasted opportunity to end up with a really high rank after my blistering first two weeks. Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) has essentially been the cardinal factor with two Gameweek decisions costing me: the Egyptian out for Harry Kane (£12.1m) in Gameweek 3 and Havertz captain instead of Salah’s 24-points haul of Gameweek 9. The latter was particularly hard to take as I only went there having used my two free transfers early to get Romelu Lukaku (£11.5m) and, when he got injured, I decided to use my Wildcard to try to fix it. I am still hoping to end the season with a top 10k finish and am definitely eyeing up a third-time lucky attempt to outscore the Salah captainers to move up the ranks potentially as soon as Gameweek 12.

Gameweek 11 Line-up

If I could play a Free Hit team this week, it would probably look like this. I am very happy with my team as a result but having two free transfers – having recently Wildcarded – is causing me a headache. In over ten years of playing FPL, I have never passed up on a free transfer and I am not willing to do so this week either.

My eyes were already firmly on Tottenham Hotspur’s upcoming fixtures, even before this week’s Antonio Conte managerial coup and, after seeing their attacking display on Thursday against Vitesse, I’m looking to go all out for both Kane and Son Heung-min (£10.3m) from Gameweek 12.

You can never be sure with Spurs but I am hoping it’s an opportunity for me to move up the ranks. Liverpool play Arsenal next week so I may even look to take a gamble and go for a Kane captaincy in Gameweek 12 over Salah.

To do so, I need to find just £0.7m on top of my £2.9m in the bank to move Jamie Vardy (£10.8m) to Kane and Havertz to Son. So, while my team doesn’t really need a change this week, I want to use one free transfer to set myself up for the following Gameweek with my philosophy being to always look a few games ahead when making my transfers.

I am happy with my defence and am not keen on a sideways move like Antonio Rudiger (£5.9m) to Reece James (£5.8m). I was also thinking of doing Havertz to Son now and finding the £0.7m next week but, having already been hit hard by Havertz’s blank in Gameweek 9, I am not willing to take him out in case he hauls at home to Burnley this week.

I am not keen to take out either of my Brentford players this week as they play Norwich City at home and I want to keep Vardy versus a Leeds United team that have been leaking goals. So this only leaves me with the option to remove Raphinha (£6.8m) – arguably the best option in his price range.

However, while I do see him getting points this week against Leicester City, his following three fixtures are not ideal and a move to Emile Smith Rowe (£5.7m), who has been heavily on my watchlist and faces Watford and Newcastle United at home in his next three, has caught my eye. This would of course also allow me to get Son and Kane for Gameweek 12 with a spare £0.1m to help avoid early transfers during the international break. Smith Rowe does have Liverpool (a) in Gameweek 12 but Raphinha has Spurs (a) and I would be benching either for Armando Broja (£5.0m) or Livramento, who both play Norwich.

So with slight regret, I will be transferring out Raphinha for Smith Rowe and will hope that over the next three weeks this move pays dividends. I haven’t pulled the trigger yet as I’m waiting to see if any more team news becomes available but I am almost certain that this will be my transfer.

Gameweek 11 Captain

Mo Salah gets the captaincy for me, away to West Ham. I am not convinced he will haul but I have eaten my words before when he played Manchester United and I believe there are no other stand-out options. I briefly contemplated Ivan Toney (£6.7m) or another Havertz gamble but I am not willing to go against the odds this week. Potentially with Kane in Gameweek 12, though!

Thanks again for reading and good luck for the Gameweek.

      White over Antonio??? Not for me.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        That I didn't notice, it's a close call, but Antonio perhaps slightly better option.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Yea, I'd say so. I have dilemma whether to start Raphinha or Cancelo, considering Cancelo atm.

    3. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      No way I'd play White over Antonio. White has a ceiling of 6pts

      1. Better Call Raul
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        White ceiling higher than that, if arsenal win 1 or 2-0 expect him to be in the bonus.

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Can't believe anyone would consider a £4.5m defender over a £8m forward because of 1/2 potential bonus points and trust me Arsenal are absolutely no guarantee of a clean sheet either..

          1. Better Call Raul
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            The way I see it Liverpool are likely to score a few so even if Antonio gets 1 goal his ceiling is 6-7 points.

            I think an Arsenal clean sheet is far more likely

            1. BrockLanders
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Fair enough. I just couldn't bring myself to play White over Antonio, no matter what..

    4. Better Call Raul
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I've also gone for White over Antonio

    How many points do you see Mbuemo and Toney getting? For me the best case is 7pts for Mbuemo and 9pts for Toney. I dont see how those are panic buy numbers

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      They aren't.

      1. Ginkapo FPL

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          I've stopped trying.

    2. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I'm not sure. Brentford have looked terrible

    3. Cok3y5murf
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Ginkapo I am on WC and very reluctant to pick these traps. Tempted by Wilson instead

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Wilson is a forward thinking pick. Go for it.

        Have you looked at his ppg?

        1. Cok3y5murf
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Yes. And involved in most of Newcastle's goals. Bad fixture this week though

  4. We ain't got no histor…

    Pick one to start:

    A. Antonio
    B. Livramento
    C. Maupay

      A

  5. EmreCan Hustle

    Thanks.

      Problem of Riches. I would say Mount

    Salah (C) Foden Raphinha Mbuemo (Brownhill)
    Vardy Maupay Antonio

    2 ft, 1.1 itb

    a. Azpilicueta to James/Chilwell
    b. Azpilicueta to James/Chilwell and Maupay to Toney

    Who would be better, James or Chilwell? ML leader has James, so Chilwell would be more of a risk

    1. Terry Tibbs: Top Pundit
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Would you say Chilwell slight more chances of playing more games?

  8. rnrd
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Plan is to sell Antonio for Broja to fund Havertz to Son within the next 2 GW.

    Question is would you do it this week or wait for next week?

    this comes down to the follwing decision for this GameWeek

    A- Antonio (LIV) + Havertz (BUR)
    B- Broja (AVL) + Son (eve)

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      B

    2. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      If it's for a hit, then I would bring in Broja this week and Son after the IB to avoid the hit.
      Unless of course you have exact cash.

      1. rnrd
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I have 2 FT so no hit involved in the process

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          B

    3. Terry Tibbs: Top Pundit
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      B)

  9. C_G
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    who to bench?

    Benrahma

    Antonio

    White

    Livra

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Benrahma

    2. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Benrahma

    3. rnrd
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Benrahma I believe.
      WHU might line up with a different shape and different tactics against Liverpool which probably affects Benrahma outputs

    4. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Hard to bench the guy who just scored 2.

      But does that perversely make Benrahma less likely and Salah more likely to score on Sunday afternoon?

    5. Mr Ozil
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Close between Benrahma and Livramento

  10. The Smudger88

    Thoughts on Guaita as a Raya replacement?

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years

      Like it.

    2. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I've had him for a few GW's and frustrating to own but I'm hopefully he'll do well with the fixtures. There's a big score to come at some point!

    3. Terry Tibbs: Top Pundit
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Not bad. I considered but went Sanchez.

    Steady green arrows, top of my ML, into the top 100k......but I fancy Kane this week.

    Cap

    A) Salah
    B) Uni-Kane

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

    2. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I own Kane too and owning him is more than enough of a differential. Capt Mo

      1. kysersosa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        True

    3. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Well you know the risks of betting against Salah on current form. So your call.
      Personally, I try to play safe before the IB. I don't want to stare at a huge red arrow for 2 weeks.

      1. kysersosa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Thats a good point!

  12. Catastrophe
    • 11 Years

    0.4 ITB and 0FT - good to go chaps and nothing worth a hit? Plan is Gray & Jesus -> Son & Fodder after IB.

    Sanchez
    TAA, Cancelo, Chilwell, Livramento
    Salah, Raphinha, Gallagher
    Ronaldo, Jesus, Antonio

        too late now, priced out after son and toney went up last night

    3. BrockLanders

      I took an 8 points last week and got nearly 60 points. They can pay off

  22. Ruinenlust

    Pick one to bench: Livra, Callagher or Antonio?

  23. Tshelby

    Sarr to?

    A) Foden
    B) ESR
    C) Jota
    D) safe, play white, and go in the IB with 2fts

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 19 days ago

      Similar situation to me. I'd probably play Saar over White and have 2fts.

  24. SKENG
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    1 FT, 1.6 in the bank

    Ramsdale
    TAA Chilwell Cancelo Livramento
    Salah Foden Raphinha
    Vardy Jimenez Antonio

    Foster Harrison Williams Brownhill

    A) Harrison > Mbeumo (bench Livramento, do Vardy > Kane next week)
    B) Save FT (and do Harrison & Vardy > Son & Toney next week)
    C) smth else?

      B looks good

    What are you doing with Mount?

    Can see him coming off the bench with another 1 pointer.

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Got to keep him with the fixture

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      He could be well rested.

      Looks recovered so got to be worth a hold.

    At what point does xG data and shots in the box become less of an indicator as to actual goals and assists in FPL?

      Depends on the player

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Guess I'm thinking of Brentford.

    Foster
    Çancelo TAA Chilwell James (white)
    Salah raphinha Foden Sarr (towsend)
    Vardy Antonio (Perica)

    Norgaard as a Sarr replacement and to get the money to switch VArdy for Kane next GW.

    What do you think?

  28. HD7
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Salah Captain?

    Ramsdale
    Trent Rudiger Chilwell James Livra
    Salah Raph Saka
    Kane Vardy

    Steele Gray Sissoko Scarlett

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Who would you pick otherwise?

      1. HD7
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Someone from the Chelsea wing backs maybe

  29. niaz1982

    G2G?

    Sanchez
    TAA Rudiger Livramento Cancelo

    Salah Mbeumo Raphina Foden

    Vardy Hwang

    Raph | Salah | Foden | Mbeumo

    Jiminez | Vardy | Antonio

    Foster | White | Livramento | Luiz
