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.

      What they said

  10. andre_c
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Thinking of doing Azpi to James, but not sure who to bench and play.

    Ramsdale
    TAA, Cancelo, Chilly, Azpi (James)
    Salah, Foden, Raph, Mbeumo
    Vardy, Armstrong

    Foster, Livra, Antonio, Brownhill
    2FT, $0.1ITB

    Should I play Antonio and Livra and if so for who?
    Thanks

  11. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Correct bench and right order? Also, is it too risky to captain Ronaldo over Salah?

    Steele
    TAA Cancelo Reguilon Rudiger
    Salah Son Gallagher Mbeumo
    Ronaldo Antonio

    Sanchez Livra Gilmour Gelhardt

    Thanks!

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yep, cant bench any of those starting XI

      Its risky if you look at EO. Potentially, I dont think its risky.

      1. NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        What he said

  12. AbsolutelyNoIdea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Coady to Regulion for -4

    or hold

  13. Pranked
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Pick 1 to start:
    Livra, raphinha, mount

    1 month, 28 days ago

    Which one?
    A. Foden to Bernardo
    B. Foden to Cornet
    C. Foden to Gallagher
    D. Save FT

    Current squad
    Steele
    TAA, Dias, James, Omobamidele
    Salah, Foden, Raphinha, Benrahma
    Ronaldo, Antonio

    Sanchez, Gray, Manquillo, Scarlett

  15. Wolfman180

    Or
    B) Son, Gallagher, Norman, Davis

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      A if all are going to play in starting XI

      B if only first 2

  16. Sz21
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Would really appreciate some direction here.
    1. Bach + Gray -> McCarthy + Gallagher. Safe + the percentage play.
    2. Sanchez + Jimenez-> Guaita + Wilson. Possible WC next GW.
    3. Sanchez + Vardy -> Steele + Kane. 100% WC next week to sort out some issues in my team and jump on players that I feel I need.

    Sanchez.
    TAA, Chilwell, Cancelo, Livramento.
    Salah, Raphinha, Benrahma.
    Vardy, Jimenez, Antonio.
    Bachmann, Rudiger, Gray, Bissouma.
    2ft, 1.1 ITB. WC. OR about 45k.

  17. Areyouthereyet

    Hello lads. Benching headache. Start Livra or Raphinha?

  18. POTATO

    1 month, 28 days ago

    Bench one
    a) Foden*(EVE)
    b) Rüdiger (lei)
    c) Mbeumo (new)

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years

      B

      1. POTATO
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        That's what I had chosen.

  19. Out now
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Which spurs defender will be best for next 4 gw?

      1. snow pea in repose
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Royal

      2. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Regu

      3. NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        One of the wingbacks

      4. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Emerson quarter pounder

    • Mozumbus
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Which player(s) out of these is least likely to start:
        Foster
        TAA Azpi Rudiger Semedo
        Salah KDB Raphinha
        Jimenez Antonio Toney

        1. banskt
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          KDB will not start.

          1. Mozumbus
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Yes, just noticed he's red flagged. Thanks.
              Do you think Son is an easy swap using FT. Or shall I take hit for a better move?

        2. Fabreghastly
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I've noticed a lot of people talking about taking hits. Be interesting to gauge what's actually going on this week.

          So what are you doing? C for me

          A. save a transfer for next week
          B. WC
          C. no hits
          D. -4
          E. -8
          F. Other

          1. NABIL - FPL otai
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            A for the first time this season

          2. Holmes
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            C. Exciting Sanchez to Krul transfer

            1. NABIL - FPL otai
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Krul to save a penalty. I'm calling it

          4. JoeTweaks
              1 month, 28 days ago

              I did D before the end of last gw

          5. NABIL - FPL otai
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            So many people are considering benching Raph.

            At this rate, he's probably going to score a brace

            1. Holmes
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Its okay, I will somehow convince my mind that it was the right decision (or feel less guilty by saying that at least I didnt sell him)

              1. NABIL - FPL otai
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Bench points is better than no points at all.

                Time for a change in perspective 😉

                1. Holmes
                  • 8 Years

                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    Lol...also benching him currently

              • 10 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              A) Raphinha + Antonio --> Jota + 7.2 fwd 2 FT
              B) Raphinha + Mbeumo --> Jota + 4.5 mid 2 FT

                  best replacement ? 5.8 and under

                    • 9 Years
                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    Ugh just missed Gallagher eh

                    Maybe ESR in preparation for GW13 and easy bench this week so you can play Raph at ease

              Morning All

              Which one to bench:
              A) Raphinha
              B) Vardy
              C) Livramento
              D) Toney

                  A & C are my main choices. Ta

                • 1 Year
                1 month, 28 days ago

                I think B. Definitely not C though

                • 1 Year

                Same dilemma. I am benching C.

                • 3 Years

                Think I'm going for C. Cheers.

              Alright - made it this late. Still got choices to make.

              Currently set up like this

              Ramsdale
              Cancelo, Azpi, Chillwell, Livramento
              Salah, Jota, Raphinha, Gallagher
              Antonio, Vardy
              (Foster, Duffy, Jimenez, Brownhill)

              1 ft, 3.8itb

              Could do nothing and roll, or any of the following.

              a/ Azpi > TAA
              b/ Duffy > TAA (bench someone…Vardy?)
              c/ Vardy > Kane

              Son rise tonight stops Raphinha > Son, but I’m ok with that.

              Kind of want to wait for another’s weeks info before moving on anyone at the moment.

                B and bench Liv

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Yeah probably the right bench person.
                  Issue with this is using all my funds and not able to get up to Kane next week.
                  Azpi > TAA leaves enough for Vardy > Kane if I want.

                  1. Disturbed
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 28 days ago

                    Has to be A in that case

              2. waltzingmatildas
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                A

              3. RogDog_jimmy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Seems like A is the responsible thing to do. Probably will in the end.

                • 1 Year
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Lol anyone for A?

                Removing a rotation risk defender for the best value defender in the season seems the right thing to do. Especially for free.

                Thanks for the confirmation all!

                Cheers guys. Probably the sensible choice, I just don't know if I trust the Brentford boys!
