Pro Pundits - Lateriser

Three-time top 200 finisher Lateriser on captaincy, ownership combinations and Foden

The top 10k template team is incredibly strong and robust at the moment, with good reason. We have a player like Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) with 99.7% ownership at this level, who is comfortably topping the expected goal involvement (xGI) charts for both the full season and the last six Gameweeks. Liverpool are in a different stratosphere when it comes to attacking and I’ve seen nothing yet to make me take the armband away from Salah. He’s averaging 3.2 shots in the box, 1.12 big chances and 2.16 chances created per game. The volume is staggering and is not showing any signs of slowing down. Nobody else touches him when it comes to underlying numbers.

There is some chat in the community of captaining one of the premium full-backs instead of Salah. Let’s look at some of the underlying numbers for this. This is the table for chances created per 90 this season:

pro-pundit-state-of-play

That is it from me this week. I’m currently sitting at 50k and hoping that I’m able to take advantage of being in a high position this early. You can catch this week’s episode of The FPL Wire below.

    Just saw Mbeumo's weekly woodwork shot. Crazy how unlucky he's been. Not the best finisher but not as poor as some says. I'm holding for at least one more week. Anyone else still believing in the woodwork prince?

      Egen you hit woodwork once in a while and scores irrespectively of that, it is unluck. When a player hits the woodwork with anomaly numbers it says something.

      That's poor finishing, not bad luck.

    Lewa best UCL captain tonight, even though they're through? Could be subbed early?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      13 days, 3 hours ago

      Yes. Doing same. Goal hungry. Was also considering Sane captain.

          But snared myself getting Trent, before realised Upamecano out, not realising they're guaranteed to top the group. Anyways, good luck tonight and remainder of UCL.

        It's Lewandowski, Sané, Haller or Adeyemi for me today

        Currently on Lewa. He's the only one I'd get a confirmation of starting before locking the team in

        Not sure I'm really tempted by tomorrow's options either (just Salah vs Porto tbh), if Lewa explodes here

  3. ResultatFar
    • 3 Years

    Pukki power an option now?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      13 days, 3 hours ago

      Yes. Decent, lovely price.

  4. KirkhamWesham

      Should I keep Wilson? I brought him in, under the influence of alcohol.

      Ramsdale

        Keep 100%. decent fixtures before it goes to gw17

          He is going to get a yellow card and be suspended for one of Norwich or Burnley at home I bet

          I have him

      4. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years

        Start Antonio or Rudiger?

        1. Pep bites Kun
          • 5 Years
          13 days, 3 hours ago

          Rudi for me. If I had Rudi I'd be starting him every gw.

        2. JUNITED
          • 9 Years
          13 days, 3 hours ago

          Rudiger

          dont hurt yourself and play rudiger

          i benched the mug last gw ..still hurts even though i had james

            Feels like points chasing.

            1. Ron_Swanson
              • 11 Years
              13 days, 2 hours ago

              He’s returned in 7 of 11 games so far this season. Including two double digit hauls. He’s pretty consistent so can’t call that point chasing unless you’re talking about future points

        4. TheAbear53
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          12 days, 23 hours ago

          You’re getting muddled up - Rüdiger’s first name is Antonio, they’re the same person

      5. DagheMunegu
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        13 days, 3 hours ago

        Is this WC any good?

        Ramsdale Gunnarson
        TAA Cancelo James Chilwell Livra
        Salah Foden Jota Gallagher ESR
        Kane Dennis Davis

        1. The Reptile
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          13 days, 3 hours ago

          Yes good - very similar to mine except I still have Antonio atm and Brownhill - I can do Ant to Broja and the get Jota as well - what do people think?

          and generally - are people keeping Antonio? I have 0.4 value tied up in him but he is quite off form

      6. Chris_White
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        13 days, 3 hours ago

        I have 2 FT's and 0.1 itb. What to do?

        Sanchez
        TAA, Cancelo, James, Chilwell
        Salah, Son, Foden, Jota, ESR
        Toney

        Foster, Antonio, Livra, Davis

        1. Pep bites Kun
          • 5 Years
          13 days, 3 hours ago

          Difficult. Team looks good. Would you consider Antonio to a forward with better fixtures? Wilson, Jimi, Pukki, etc.

        2. Chris_White
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          13 days, 3 hours ago

          Possibly, thing is I can easily bench him this week and against Chelsea so not sure if I want to lose him as I'd want him back in 16/18 anyways.

          Considered Toney and Sanchez to Benteke and Ramsdale

          1. Pep bites Kun
            • 5 Years
            13 days, 3 hours ago

            Actually, I left out Benteke. Good call. Solid moves overall, but you could roll the gk move and have 2 FTs next gw. I do prefer Ramsdale for save points, but the fixtures look fairly equal.

            1. Chris_White
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              13 days, 2 hours ago

              Yup good point, could do that. Cheers

      7. ResultatFar
        • 3 Years
        13 days, 3 hours ago

        Worth doing Raphinha -> Jota for a -4? (If he's not injured that is)

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 5 Years
          13 days, 3 hours ago

          Not for a hit.

        2. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          13 days, 3 hours ago

          No.

        3. Il Capitano
          • 1 Year

          No

        4. mynameisq
          • 8 Years
          13 days, 3 hours ago

          Yes, if no bench cover

        Guaita
        TAA Cancelo Chilwell
        Salah Son Raph Mbeumo
        Vardy Antonio Toney

        Foster - White Livramento Brownhill

        Thoughts on the below transfer ideas? Antonio the best option to free cash up given the fixtures?

        A) Antonio + Mbeumo > 5.8m fwd + Jota
        B) Antonio + White > 6m fwd + James
        C) Antonio + Mbeumo + White > King + Gallagher + James (-4)

        1. JUNITED
          • 9 Years
          13 days, 3 hours ago

          I’m not too sure. Go for B. You will play 442 or 433 weekly by rotating Mbuemo and the other striker.

      9. In a Rush
        • 5 Years
        13 days, 3 hours ago

        I can’t decide who to ditch ihenacho for any thoughts appreciated.
        Have 8.1 to spend other forwards are Antonio and hwang.

        Players I’m contemplating are

        Asm
        Benteke
        King
        Wilson (but concerned about the 4 yellows)
        Jimenez (but double up with hwang and fixtures turn)
        Any other ideas?

        Cheers

          Hi folks. Posted this yesterday just looking for some low feedback.

          Would you bench Raphina or Toney and is there anything worth a hit?

          Sanchez
          Trent, Cancelo, Chillwell, James, Reguillon
          Salah, Jota, Zaha
          Ronaldo, Toney

            • 8 Years
            13 days, 3 hours ago

            Personally I would bench Reguilon, even though he is on my target list. Burnley away going to be a a tough one for Spurs I feel. They only played well for 30 minutes really against Leeds. Nothing worth a hit that I can see.

            1. HuttonDressedasLahm
              • 12 Years
              13 days, 2 hours ago

              Agreed
              Burnley can actually attack now

            Salah, Raphinha, Smith Rowe, Mbeumo, Gilmour

            Which one is best?

            A) Roll and start Antonio vs City
            B) Benrahma > Gallagher. Bench Antonio
            C) Livramento > Reguilon. Bench Antonio

                2nd Chelsea WB, for me. They're raking in the points.

                • 8 Years

                        Tough one. Toney could get a return against a poor Everton team but his ceiling is not as high compared to Jota.

                        Bench Wilson? Arsenal defence are actually pretty solid vs weaker teams; no shame in getting overrun by Liverpool

                  2. Indpush
                    • 3 Years

                    I dropped Gray for Hayden and now waiting for news of Jota in order to possibly drop Mbeumo for him. Got exact money currently. Still have Toney.

                  Would you make the following moves with 2FTs to shift to 5 mids?

                  Antonio, luiz > Jota, Dennis

                    • 2 Years
                    13 days, 2 hours ago

                    Yes I would do that move but be aware Dennis may be called up to AFCON for Nigeria. He hasn't been called up since 2019 though. Dennis 3rd bench option should be fine.

                    1. GuenDoozy
                      • 2 Years

                      Cheers, i didn't know that. Yeah he will almost permanently be bench fodder.

                  As it gets closer to GW13, the more I'm leaning towards selling Antonio to fund Chelsea WB/Jota moves. Stats in the last 4 are extremely poor and at the moment we only need 0.3m to get him back later.

                  Anyone else planning the same move?

                      I too am looking to shift Antonio, considering 5 at the back with how Chelsea WBs/Cancelo/TAA are hauling

                      A lot of value tied up in Antonio who’s form seems to be up

                      Ramsdale
                      TAA - Cancelo - Dias - Rudiger
                      Salah - Son - Raph
                      Antonio - Wilson - Toney

                      Foster - Livra - Luiz - Brownhill

                      Very tempted by Antonio > Dennis and Livra > James and going 5-3-2…
                      Any work needed here or GTG? TIA

                        I just wish they’d invest in better audio equipment!

                        I only ever do the podcast - maybe YouTube is better quality.

                      Which move would you make?
                      A. Antonio to Wilson/ Wood/ Jimenez and if so which one?
                      B. Duffy to Emerson Royal and Bench Antonio
                      C. Roll the transfer

                        i think you can roll if you have someone to start instead of antonio

                          Duffy or Livraminto
                          Both not encouraging so I think there is point to be gained with a transfer

                      anyone else here getting rid of vardy this week?

                      They have been awful and wondering if a one week punt on auba might be the play

                        no chance - watford is a good team to play to get back in form and rest of their fixtures are good

                        plus i need to break my vardy curse

                        Took Vardy out for Kane last week. Would probably hold in your position as next four of Watford, Southampton, Villa and Newcastle is a pretty juicy run even if Leicester are struggling.
