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.

      • 5 Years

      Morning everyone. On WC, 0.3 ITB.
      GTG?

      Bench order correct?

      Guaita
      TAA,James,Chilwell,Cancelo
      Salah(c),Son(Vc),Foden,Mbeumo
      Wilson,Antonio

      Bench : Foster,Gallagher,Livra,Broja

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Play Gallagher over mbeumo

        1. isthoralive
            7 months, 8 days ago

            This

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

          I'd lose Mbeumo on a WC and play Livra instead

          Broja to Hwang (2nd sub), Mbeumo to Brownhill/Bissouma (3rd sub)

          Keep the funds ITB. You'll need them by GW16

          1. LC1
            • 7 Years

            Basically this

        Any new injury news before pens away?

      3. Tronity

        Thoughts on Vardy and Foden > Kane and Jota with 2FTs?

        1. KANTEnders
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          I wouldn’t lose Foden

        2. Rocket Raccoon
          • 11 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          No

        3. Ze_Austin

          7 months, 8 days ago

          The players you're selling are likely to outscore the players you're buying on the short, medium and long terms

        4. isthoralive
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Not even

          • Salan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Do it. Kane and Jota will outscore Vardy and Foden in short terms, 3-5 weeks.

        5. Valdez
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Bench Chilwell or Royal guys?

          1. Rocket Raccoon
            • 11 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Royal

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Chilwell might have a point to prove against his old club

          3. isthoralive
              7 months, 8 days ago

              Royal

            Bottomed. Any changes needed? 0.5 ITB.

            Steele
            TAA, Cancelo, Chilwell, Livramento
            Salah, Son, Jota, Gallagher
            Vardy, Antonio

                  Absolutely G2G, imo

                  Highest points potential players are starting, instead of following price bias

                • 3 Years
                7 months, 8 days ago

                Play 2

                A) Raph
                B) Livra
                C) Benrahma

                  Jota worth a -4? Would replace Jiminez in a shift from 3-4-3 to 3-5-2.

                    No. Check Wolves fixtures.

                  Foden is in the training videos and participating 100%. Pep is talking bull.

                    When was the video taken?

                      • 3 Years
                      7 months, 8 days ago

                      Thing is, Pep said the knock was from international duty

                      If he's in Man City training, the video is *after* the knock

                        https://twitter.com/FFScout/status/1461690813038137344?s=20

                        Pep Guardiola: "Jack [Grealish] is getting better after going to the national team. Phil Foden came back with a knock, a problem with his leg but is getting better."

                          I heard Pep's interview. Seems undecided?

                          Unbeaten in 6 games….2 wins on the trot….he scored in last 2 games including away at city…great fixtures right into February…someone tell me please….STEP AWAY FROM THE ZAHA

                            In a world with bad fixtures and form elsewhere, I'd triple up on Palace: Zaha + Gallagher + Guaita are perfect for FPL atm

                            As things stand, it's just the GG double-up for me, from GW13

                            I have exact money to bring him in but will give me a real benching headache this week (play 2 of Livra, Jimenez, zaha or Raphina) and burnley’s home record isn’t that bad so think I’ll hold the transfer and consider bringing him in next week

                          Any Arsenal fans here captaining Salah?

                          How do you guys play captaincy when it's against YOUR team?

                            It’s a win-win: he scores you get the points; he doesn’t, you probably get the three points.

                              I am, can’t let being a homer affect your common sense that he loves to
                              score against Arsenal

                              Morning all,

                              Thoughts on which 2 to bench from this lot?

                              A) Rudiger (LEI)
                              B) Saka (LIV)
                              C) Mbeumo (NEW)
                              D) Livra (NOR)
                              E) Hwang (WHU)

                              Currently benching 1) Rudiger (have Chillwell and not confident in double up) and 2) Saka... but not confident

                              Cheers

                            6. Return of the FF

                              Vardy to Kane, or roll?

                              Final questions,

                              Salah or Ronaldo captain?

                              Field Ramsdale or Steele?

                              1. Crunchie

                                Play Ramsdale. You could go Ronaldo, big call though.

                                I dont see a 3-0 thrashing at Liverpool.

                                Arsenal are better at 1-0 wins or 1-1 draws than scoring loads IMO.

                                    Right now my C is on Ronaldo but I don't feel comfortable which is kind fo ridiculous really. If you asked me in isolation who I think will score more points this GW I'd say Ronaldo but the effective ownership is very worrying
