Rate My Team

FPL Rate My Team surgery with five-time top 1k finisher Tom Freeman

There is yet another deadline for Fantasy Premier League (FPL) upon us and the questions are, as ever, coming thick and fast in our comments section.

Most of these are requests for advice on transfer dilemmas or team advice and it’s with that in mind that we’ve asked five-time top 1k finisher and Scout’s Deputy Editor, Tom Freeman, to answer some of them over the next 90 minutes.

He’ll be on hand to reply to comments below the line of this piece and will get through as many as he can until the next article goes up at 11am GMT, with priority given to questions from Premium Members if there is a deluge.

As ever, you can chip in with your own opinions on the raft of RMT requests filtering through – and naturally, feel free to ignore the article subject matter and talk about any other wider FPL topics that you’d normally be musing on.

Don’t forget that, if it’s an algorithmic answer you’re after rather than an opinion-based one, we also have a ‘Rate My Team’ tool available in the Premium Members Area (where there is currently a Black Friday/Cyber Monday discount on annual subscriptions), which gives points projections for this weekend and beyond – an example of which is below:

    Sometimes I think that maybe Ballon d'Or should be scrapped completely. There's no objective way to compare players across positions and sometimes I feel like some players focus more on individual trophies like this one than the success of a whole team.

      Yep, also it's laughable that they added a striker of the year award when strikers already get enough recognition compared to other positions

        Everyone knows that was just added as a consolidation prize to Lewa to screw him out of a 2nd Balon Dor and gift it to Messi. Shameful

          "gift" tell me you don't follow football without telling me you don't follow football, stop getting your news from football meme pages

      They just need to have categories so goalkeepers defenders etc can be awarded as it currently just favours attackers

      Exactly. Only way I see it can be made fair (or closer to fairness) is to have 4 Balon D’Or winners from each set of positions (Striker, Midfielder, Defender, Goalkeeper)

      It's like any industry awards - the Oscars, Brit Awards, etc. All a load of subjective nonsense used as an excuse for back-slapping and a big game of soggy biscuit.

    I know Antonio has a great run coming up but him to King allows me to upgrade Duffy to Alonso and another upgrade.

    Stick or twist?

    Cheers

      Stick for this game week. Then reevaluate.

    Chasing 1st position in my mini league. He has Jota, Toney and I am considering to do Vardy, Mbeumo to Toney, Jota. Should I go with a differential like bernardo instead of Jota?

    1. CONNERS
      • 3 Years

      I would say Bilva is a good punt but only in addition to Jota, not instead of.

        yeah fair enough thanks.

    2 FT to play:

    White/Benhrama to Regulion/Bissouma and play 4-3-3?

    Ramsdale
    Regulion, Alonso, TAA, Cancelo
    Salah (c), Raphinha, ESR
    Jesus, Kane, Antonio

    1.2 ITB (Foster, Brownhilll, Bissouma, Livramento)

    1. CONNERS
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I'd be more inclined to just do Raph to Jota and save 1FT.

  6. andre_c
    • 3 Years

    Vardy, Mbeumo to Toney, Jota?

    News on Dennis that I can’t find?

    1. Totti
      • 5 Years

    what do u think guys on son captain? 🙂
    need to take a risk to step forward

    1. Willco97

      To me, that seems like a bigger risk of a step backwards. I own Kane, so I think Spurs will start to come good soon, but they have to show me something before I would consider the armband on one of them.

    James looks like he will be rested

      Thomas Tuchel: "We have some players in doubt, maybe we need a bit more time, more examinations. Reece James, Jorginho and Timo Werner: they all trained today with us and there will be some last-minute decisions about the three."

    2. Totti

      and may be vardy 🙂

      looks like a nice gameweek is awaiting 🙂

  12. jimbo90

    Livra or D Gray 1st sub?

  13. vmang
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Sanchez
    TAA Dias James
    Salah Son Raphinha Saka
    Jimenez Antonio Toney

    Steel Williams Livra Bissouma

    1 FT 0.9 itb.

    Can do Saka -> Gundo
    Also tempting Dias -> Cancelo
    Any other options?

    Can also save FT and pray for a fit Saka.

    1. Zladan

      Players you ought to look towards are Cancelo Jota Alonso. So any move to bring any of those in would benefit the team.
