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.

    2 Questions
    1) Get James or Chilwell?
    2) Vardy, Sarr > Son, Edouard ?

    Would you WC this team? 0FT 1.4 ITB

    Foster | Sanchez

    TAA | Chilwell | TAA | Cancelo | Livra

    ESR | Gallagher | Raph | Salah | Benny

    Vardy | Toney | Antonio

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Nah.

    2. Kellz86
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Will you keep the TAA brothers if you WC?

  3. Il Capitano
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 8 days ago

    2FT 0ITB

    Foster
    TAA Cancelo Chilwell Livramento
    Salah Son Raph
    Vardy Antonio Toney

    Sanchez - Mbeumo Brownhill White

    Worth selling Vardy for Wilson even with Vardy's fixture run after Chelsea? It would raise funds for Mbeumo > Jota next week.

    1. Il Capitano
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Would do something like Sanchez > Guaita with the FT this week if I keep Vardy (can't think of anything else).

    2. Balls of Steel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      I've gone Vardy to Wilson to fund the Jota move next week.

      1. Il Capitano
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Does make sense to fund the Jota move, can't shake the feeling of imminent punishment from Vardz though

        1. Balls of Steel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Ya Vardy will probably score given the fact I've owned him for past 3 or 4 weeks and he's got no returns...just feel Howe will ignite Newcastle and Wilson could be great with a few nice upcoming fixtures.

  4. NABIL - FPL otai
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Who will punish sellers?
    A. Vardy
    B. Toney
    C. Mbeumo

    I do not accept neither as an answer

    1. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Oh I forgot

      D. Sarr

      1. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        haha - Im looking at selling Sarr, so everyone should get him now 😀

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Just how fpl works 🙂

      2. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Sarr is about to have some fun, with the state of Man U's defensive phase

        Memories of what he did to us still linger, as a Pool fan

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Sarr explosion incoming

            An incoming explosion sounds more like an implosion...

      Vardy party

    3. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      A

    4. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      btw, if your answer is neither, then you're probably still new to the FPL world

    5. Angelic upstart
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Toney

    6. Balls of Steel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      A because I sold him for Wilson!

      1. NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        You're making it inevitable!

        1. Balls of Steel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          I think both Vardy and Wilson will score this week..

    7. User Unknown
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Two points each

    8. Cojones of Destiny

          • 1 Year

          Benchable this week, I prefer all of your starters over him

  6. Junks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Foster / Toney / Saka / Duffy

    Worth a Bench Boost?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Yes.

    2. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I wouldn't

      I expect at least 18 points if I BB.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Last time would have given me 20 points but Foster was unusual.

        Not sure how expecting 20 points makes a difference tbf.

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Or 18.

          1. Colonel Shoe 肝池
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            i wouldnt put a figure on it but there must be a level at which youre happy with playing it rather than a 'waste'
            5pts per bench player (20) would be incredible but dont know if thats realistic, same as 2pts per player (8) would be disappointing, so the bar has to be somewhere between those 2

            1. NABIL - FPL otai
              • 9 Years
              7 months, 8 days ago

              You sounded like Simon March. Not a bad thing though

        2. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Saka vs liv at anfield
          Duffy vs inspired villa

          Don't think it'll be fruitful sorry

    3. Angelic upstart
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Not for me

    4. Junks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Thanks all very helpful

    5. chriscosta
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      no

  7. Redranger
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Which option? Want to get Cancelo in

    A) Duffy & Havertz > Cancelo & Gallagher
    B) Duffy, Havertz & Toney > Cancelo, Jota & Hwang
    C) Duffy & Vardy > Cancelo & Wilson

    1. ctulhu
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I'm in exact same situation as you, considering C.

      Do you think Vardy --> Benteke is a wise move so save money somewhere?

      1. Redranger
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Personally I don’t think Benteke is the best choice, but with how my season is going; who the hell knows.

    2. Angelic upstart
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      B or C depending on your transfers

      1. Redranger
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        B would be a -4

    Play one:

    1. Mbeumo (new)
    2. Jimenez (WHU) [may be rested / benched]
    3. Livramento (nor) [would be 5 at the back]

    Morning

    Think I'm going mad slightly......can someone help?

    I'm currently starting broja over vardy??

    1. Balls of Steel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Broja not guaranteed to start whereas Vardy is and at home. Norwich could put up a battle being their first game under Smith.

      1. n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        This is my concern

  15. Mufc202020
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Ramsdale
    Livra James Dias Cancelo (C)
    Havertz Gallagher Salah
    Ant Vardy Toney

    Ward Raph Rud Sissoku

    0.4m ITB - 0 FT left as I did Sarr to Gallagher early.

    Any hits required & bench in the right order?

      Azpi and Vardy to Reguillon and Kane for-4 or is that going to soon on Spurs?

      Can't afford just the Kane one.

      1. Sid07
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Will not do for a hit
        If you have decent bench for azpi

    • Oldie99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Start Livra or Mitchell? Seems really close but probably Livra?

      1. Sid07
        • 8 Years

        Livra

      2. Mufc202020

      Suggestions?

      TAA Cancelo James (Livramento white)
      Salah Foden Raphinha Mbuemo (Brownhill)

      1. TB303

        I would play foster no? 🙂

      2. Angelic upstart
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Antonio for wilson

    • TB303
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Seen a lot of teams in here this week playing Ramsdale over Foster.

      I originally had Foster first choice. Should I go with my gut or the majority??

      1. Sid07
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        I believe you should go with guy, no nailed option here

      2. Angelic upstart
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Go with gut

    • gawa11
      • 6 Years

      Are the below moves ok or wait another week?
      Out - raph & Antonio
      IN - jota & Wilson

      1. TB303
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Tricky as all could be scoring points this week. Jots seems the best pick this week so would go ‘IN’

      2. Angelic upstart
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Wait if doing for -4 otherwise it's a coin toss

      3. Balls of Steel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        I would try to hold onto Antonio this week but Raphina can go..

    • Mr Ozil
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Which is better?

      A- Wilson (funds to upgrade King next week)

            Virtually everyone was until the last couple of weeks, no? So no surprise if people still have Toney/Mbeumo or both, and giving him/them another chance against Newcastle seems like common sense

            B) Marcal --> Ben Davies/Ait Nouri/Lamptey and roll 1 FT to reevaluate next week.
            C) Marcal + Havertz --> Jota + Reguilon
