Mark Sutherns’ FPL Gameweek 12 preview and latest team plans

Andy North and Mark Sutherns are back after the internationals, with the latter breaking a recent hiatus from Blackbox to chat Fantasy Premier League (FPL) once again.

Mark is recording for our subscribers every Gameweek throughout the upcoming campaign, so sign up via this link in order to see his regular appearances.

With four new manager appointments, a clamour for Spurs attacking assets and the regular flirtation with an alternative to Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) as captain, there’s plenty for Andy and Mark to chew over.

And of course, they dip into their own teams to chat their current thinking ahead of Saturday’s much anticipated deadline.

    Any concerns about Cancelo starting after Pep's comments? I was planning on bringing him in but have my doubts now. So, Rudiger ➡ Cancelo or James?

    1. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      No more than usual! I never feel 100% safe with Pep but he's in my team and I expect him to start

        Cheers mate

    2. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      I’d want Cancelo long term so I’d still make the move

      1. Ando
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 2 hours ago

        Good point. Cheers mate.

        • 5 Years
        9 months, 2 hours ago

        he said something like Cancelo could play every 3 days, and is an amazing physical specimen, so yeah, he's about to get benched

  2. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Oh for goodness sake this darn game of fantasy is back isn’t it.

    Enjoyed the break!

      Definition of a love-hate relationship. Mostly hate though.

      Are you captaining Kane?

      Also, your thoughts on the above would be appreciated.

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      I first week after an international break having not looked at things for 12 days is always the worst for me!

  3. Weeb Kakashi
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Guaita
    TAA Reece Cancelo Livra
    Salah Son(C) Kai Jota
    Antonio Toney

    Raphinha Williams

    1 FT 0.7 ITB

    Easy Save?

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      Very, very easy. Great side

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 2 hours ago

        Cheers Mate. GL

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      I would start Raphinha over livra

    3. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      Yep, save

  4. Blue Moon Rising
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Dias or Regulion (already got Cancelo)

    1. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      I would probably say Reguilon. I have had Dias for 4 weeks since WC but struggling to see enough upside for his price. If he blanks on Sunday he is on the chopping block for me

      1. Blue Moon Rising
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 2 hours ago

        Very confident in our ability to keep clean sheets though. Particularly with the fixtures and stones back

        1. Will Kane
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 2 hours ago

          Ah, didn't clock you were a City fan 🙂

          Well, I hope you're right, clean sheet on Sunday and I'll keep him a while longer. Couple of bonus points wouldn't go amiss either

    2. WVA
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      Reg

  5. Stram Dunk
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Gtg guys?

    Steele
    TAA Cancelo Chilwell Reguilon
    Salah Mbeumo Gallagher
    Kane(c) Ronaldo Hwang

    Sánchez Livramento ESR Sissoko

    1. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      I'd consider Livra over Hwang, but if you're happy with the current XI then GTG

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 2 hours ago

        aGree with the captain

    2. Stram Dunk
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      Cheers both

  6. Il Capitano
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    2FT 0ITB

    Foster
    TAA Cancelo Chilwell Livramento
    Salah Son Raph
    Vardy Antonio Toney

    Sanchez - Mbeumo Brownhill White

    Worth downgrading Vardy to Wilson for the sake of getting Jota next week? Can get Gallagher next week instead if I keep Vardy.

    1. MARVELLUS
      • 13 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      I am thinking this too, but for me it is Auba

      1. Il Capitano
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 2 hours ago

        Auba probably an easier sell, fixtures are a bit more mixed.

  7. Pep Roulette
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Hey fam! Which option? 2 FTs

    A. KDB to Son. Save another FT.

    B. KDB & Eduoard to Jota & Kane.

    1. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      A

    2. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      A

    3. Weeb Kakashi
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      B. Why wouldn't you roll the dice. The upside between Kane and Edouard is certainly that high

    4. Weeb Kakashi
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      Damn misread it. I would go A. Apologies

  8. EffPeeEll
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    mark's team behind a paywall

    bleh!!!

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      But can't you see it on FPL BlackBox?

  9. frenchfries
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Bench one:

    A) Livramento
    B) ASM

    1. patricio33
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      B

    2. Stram Dunk
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      A

  10. Slurpy
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Can only play 2
    A) Livramento (nor)
    B) Henry (new)
    C) Saka (LIV)
    D) Raphinha (thu)

    1. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      A and D.

  11. The Count of Monte Cristo
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    --- Leaning towards B as I marginally prefer Son - thoughts appreciated?

    A) Vardy + Sarr --> Kane + Gallagher
    B) Vardy + Sarr --> Son + Wilson
    C) Havertz --> Jota

    - -

    Foster
    TAA -- Cancelo -- Livramento
    Salah -- Havertz -- Raphinha -- Saka
    Antonio -- Vardy -- Toney

    Sánchez -- White -- Sarr -- Amartey [2FT + 1.4m ITB]

    1. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      I'd go B. I'm stuck with Sarr for another week.

    2. Weeb Kakashi
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      B. Havertz can be Jota or Foden next week. Should start this week.

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 2 hours ago

        Thanks, both. Feel I have more flexibility with B and still leaning that way

  12. Pep Roulette
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Anyone has any idea how long Firmino is out?

  13. A Fat Spanish Waiter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Have any site members had a look at the RMT tool recently? Today, Foden dropped massively for the rest of the season (average less than 45 minutes per game). Could that possibly be an error? I feel like they must have hit the wrong toggle and downgraded him for the rest of the campaign instead of this week.

  14. Atwood
    • 12 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    What are Havertz owners doing? I was definitely selling until I heard Lukaku was out. Hazertz should be starting surely?

    1. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      Sold him for Son yesterday.

      1. Atwood
        • 12 Years
        9 months, 2 hours ago

        That's the one move I'd consider doing, if only I could afford it

    2. Pep Roulette
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      Not selling this week for sure

    3. Goooo Rickie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      I was dead set on bringing Son in but this news has made me massively over think my plans :/

      1. Goooo Rickie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 2 hours ago

        Havertz OOP vs Leicester feels like a keep now .

    4. Balls of Steel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      Sticking for this week at least even though not confident he will return many points against Leicester. Likely I'll sell next week for Jota.

  15. Totti
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Who bench guys?

    Choose 2

    A) dias
    B) rudiger
    C) Mbeumo
    D) raphinha
    E) Vardy

    1. Totti
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      F) jimenez

    2. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      B and C.

    3. A Fat Spanish Waiter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      B and C.

  16. WVA
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Who to captain? I'm guaranteed to get it wrong from these three!

    A. Salah
    B. Ronaldo
    C. Son

    1. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      If I had that choice I'd go Ronaldo.

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      BAC for me

    3. A Fat Spanish Waiter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      It’s a trap! Salah, Mostly because of EO.

    4. acidicleo
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      B

    5. Balls of Steel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      B

    6. WVA
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 38 mins ago

      Bottled it and left it on Salah

  17. JJO
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    So what is the situation with Jota? Fit to start?

  18. FPL Doctor
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    2FTs. 0.5 ITB

    Ramsdale
    TAA James Cancelo
    Salah Foden* Raph Mbeumo
    Toney Antonio Vardy

    Foster Livra Saka Duffy

    A) Vardy —> Wilson and roll other FT
    B) Vardy + Foden —> Wilson + Son for free
    C) Vardy + a midfielder —> Kane and Gallagher

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      I had something very similar above actually.

      Thing is I would not want to get rid of Foden, but I prefer Son over Kane. Simply on that I would choose B over C.

  19. wulfrunian
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    I am thinking to get Mahrez...

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      You don't want to be thinking that.

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      What time did you start drinking today? 🙂

  20. A Fat Spanish Waiter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Pick one:

    1) Vardy + Mbeumo -> Wilson + Wilson/Jota
    2) Vardy -> Wilson and roll the other FT
    3) Some other bright idea

    Team currently is:
    Guaita (Foster)
    TAA Cancelo Chilly (Livra White)
    Salah Son Raph Mbuemo (Brownhill)
    Antonio Toney Vardy

    1. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      1

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      2

      1. A Fat Spanish Waiter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 2 hours ago

        I’m leaning this way, but I’m on the fence.

        1. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 10 Years
          9 months, 2 hours ago

          Must be a strong fence to hold you up haha! I think it's worth keeping Mbuemo this GW as 2 FT next week probably worth wore than an extra 3 points, let's say.

  21. Goooo Rickie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    In the luxury position of 2FT's and no fires to put out;

    Saint Max to Wilson for free people?

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      Seems decent enough

    2. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      Yes.

    3. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      Yes

  22. Tmel
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 2 hours ago

    Start Chilwell (already playing James) or Livra?

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

      chilwell

    2. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 2 hours ago

    Chilwell - Taa - Cancelo - Diaz - Livra
