Pro Pundit Teams

My team for Gameweek 19 and why Spurs and Leicester players are on the FPL radar

Pro Pundits 29

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) really is a game where a 50/50 call can make all the difference. Last week, in my Team Reveal ahead of Gameweek 17, I talked up the prospects of a certain Gabriel Martinelli (£5.3m) and how I was considering bringing him into my team as a makeweight for Phil Foden (£8.0m). I also spoke about how I was also considering a “safer” transfer, upgrading Ben Johnson (£4.0m) to Matty Cash (£5.0m). This decision really did come down to the wire, but in the end I plumped for the Arsenal midfielder to add a bit of spiciness to my pretty “template” team. This decision has been worth around a 29-point net positive so far: fine lines, but a big reward.

Making the “right call” is what FPL is all about, but believe me, I know the pain that comes when it doesn’t pay off. Advising people to sell Diogo Jota (£8.1m) for Kai Havertz (£7.8m) ahead of the Gameweek 9 mauling of Manchester United certainly wasn’t my finest moment (thankfully, I didn’t own the Portuguese midfielder at the time!). Similarly, my hokey-cokey of the premium forwards probably lost me around 20 points. I’ve also made bad decisions such as the likes of my one-week punt on Neal Maupay (£6.4m) – and don’t even get me started on Jack Grealish (£7.6m)…

But while it’s easy to focus on the negatives, trusting your gut and backing your hunches has always been the way I like to play the game and in a season where the template is so strong, in my view, we need to jump on opportunities that we identify that others may miss.

Spurs and Leicester players – Opportunities?

So it’s time to look forward to see where opportunities may present themselves. With the likelihood of Double Gameweeks on the horizon (with Gameweek 22 looking the most likely), I firmly believe the next month will be crucial for us to achieve whatever targets we have set for ourselves. Chip use may be key, and getting maximum returns from the Wildcard and Free Hit chip will likely make or break our seasons but similarly, saving a transfer (if you can) this week looks an incredibly sensible move.

With the news of the extra Free Hit dropping, many will be looking to play this in whatever week we get confirmation of a Double Gameweek. Regardless of whether or not you will use this chip, two teams on my radar for investment are Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City. Spurs look ideal for investment either way as they have Watford in Gameweek 21 and a home match against Arsenal in Gameweek 22. Leicester have arguably the two best fixtures over this period, with Norwich (GW21) and Burnley (GW22) lined up, plus whichever teams get added.

There’s probably not a lot of investment in Spurs at the moment, considering they have missed three matches over the last six Gameweeks. Son Heung-min (£10.3m) now has just over 16% ownership, shedding nearly 500,000 owners since Gameweek 13. Harry Kane (£12.1m) sits at 5.7% ownership, with encouraging underlying numbers (he sits fifth on the list for expected goal involvement (xGI) over the last four Gameweeks played). In defence, the likes of Sergio Reguilon (£5.2m) looks like he will offer great value, as can Ben Davies (£4.5m) with just 1.9% ownership. I’ll be grabbing at least two of these players I imagine over the next few weeks, to tap into this promising short-term schedule.

Above: Spurs sit high on the Season Ticker for the next four Gameweeks

Investment in Leicester is also likely to be minimal given that they play Manchester City and Liverpool in their next two Gameweeks. But if the doubles go ahead in Gameweek 21 and 22, as mentioned, we may see people flocking for the likes of Jamie Vardy (£10.5m) and James Maddison (£6.8m) – who by the way, has three double-digit returns in his last four matches played!

Another player to consider may well be Youri Tielemans (£6.4m), who is on course for his best-ever season from an attacking point of view (he already has seven goal involvements, managing ten last season). In his last game, Tielemans registered an impressive mins-per-xGi of 67.2, ahead of all other players in the league. The statistics show that when he plays, Tielemans is far more offensive than we saw last season, registering nearly double the number of shots per appearance (2.4) and averaging 36.8 mins per attempt.

Above: Youri Tielemans’ averages per appearance in 2021/22 (left) vs 2020/21 (right)

Unlike Spurs, I would stay away from Leicester’s defence. Over the last six matches played, only Newcastle, Everton and Leeds have a worse expected non-penalty goals conceded (xGC) tally than the Foxes (10.13). Ouch.

TEAM REVEAL

Here’s how I’m set up for Gameweek 19:

Happy Christmas!

So with plugs for Spurs and Leicester assets, I’ll leave it there. Thanks to everyone for reading and I’d like to extend my warmest wishes to readers of Fantasy Football Scout this Christmas season. It’s been another tough year, and I hope you can make the most of the festive season no matter where you are.

    Still have my WC and am pretty happy with my team for this GW, so will keep the WC for next week. Still have my 1FT for this week though; any thoughts on a punt for this GW? Otherwise it's just a lost FT.

    De Gea
    TAA Cancelo James Reguilon
    ESR Salah (C) Jota Bilva
    Laca Pukki

    Sanchez Raph Cash Gelhardt

    0.7 ITB

    I had thought maybe Raph > Martinelli, then bench Reguilon. I guess Martinelli might be quite a common transfer though, so open to more left field suggestions!

    Ta!

    1. JoJoRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Pukki to someone/Broja ?

    2. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Team looks good and I am in the same position in terms of needing to WC next week as team is strong this.

      Have you thought about what your wildcard team might look like yet?

      In terms of a punt this week, i would definitely take out Pukki. maybe Toney, Maupay or Broja depending on how wild you are feeling

      1. Punk as Fuchs
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Cheers for the suggestions both, will take a look at Pukki replacements 🙂

        Re. my WC, I don't plan a massive overhaul. I'll probably just sort out my forwards as they're a bit cobbled together at the mo following the last couple of GWs, and maybe the goalkeeper situation.

        No bother at all, mate!

        I was secretly hoping for a PL circuit-breaker over Xmas but "it is what it is", as Pep might say. At least they're getting most of the pressers out the way early so I can slip off early tomorrow!

    What to do with this lot please guys:

    Salah • Jota • Sterling • Mount • Saka
    Dennis

    Foster • Watkins • Livramento • Gelhardt

    Cheers Skonto…

  5. Amartey Partey

    I know Wolves are strong defensively but Dennis is in such good form I still reckon he will score.

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      This sounds like blasphemy, but it exists:

      None of the defences Dennis has scored against under Ranieri (whole season too) was in top form when he faced them

      It can happen for the first time vs Wolves, but it hasn't happened yet

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        In other words: Dennis has been a flat-track bully so far

        And the bullying is based solely on your defensive stats, not your club status

        Still, it just might mean that City and Arsenal (Liverpool, Wolves, Spurs and Brighton pre-Ranieri) were lucky, and Wolves won't be. Who's to say?

        1. Cojones of Destiny
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          would you start him over Bilva or Foden?

          1. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Absolutely not

            Have you seen Leicester defend?

            Especially last night? 😀

            And now they've lost Soyboy and Pereira, again

            1. Cojones of Destiny
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              the Q has more to do with Bilva and Fodens game time in starting line up

              1. Ze_Austin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 6 days ago

                Bilva very likely starts. He's had a week of rest, with no Cup in midweek. First attacker on Pep's team sheet since GW2, when fit

                The only reason Foden won't start is that he's still being punished for clubbing. But if he's still being punished, you'll get Dennis off the bench

                I'll start both

                1. Cojones of Destiny
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  thx for the replies ZA

                  1. Amartey Partey
                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 6 days ago

                    Yeah you gotta start city players on the off chance they play. They are going to spank that Leicester “defence”.

      2. Amartey Partey
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Good points. Wolves are likely to attack more against Watford though than when they face a bigger club like Chelsea so Dennis just needs one chance.

        I’m still debating between starting him or ESR.

        1. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          ESR is a real concern here. Annoyingly unlikely to start, impossible to sell, and can score off the bench again vs Norwich

          Coin toss?

          1. Amartey Partey
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Yeah difficult to bench him as he is playing so well. There is a also a chance Arteta starts ESR and Odegaard for this game.

            1. Ze_Austin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              ESR and Odegaard started in the Cup

              Not good, not good 🙁

              Maaaaaaaaaaybe it's Odegaard who's rested in GW19, so we get Saka - ESR - Martinelli with Laca

              1. Amartey Partey
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 6 days ago

                I thought ESR looked pretty good in the game so Arteta has some big decisions to make. Would expect him to stick ESR on the bench though.

    2. VALDEZ
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I agree definitely starting him

  6. dshv
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Esr davis -> brownhill king ???

    1. VALDEZ
      • 9 Years

      Na

    2. CABAYE4

    3. Rupert The Horse

      Nope

    4. The Senate

      yep

  7. Claudio555

    Livra>Marcal?

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Marçal drops out when Ait-Nouri is fit. Ait-Nouri isn't fit, but might be close. So, neither atm

      Sure you can't bump up to Dalot or Davies?

    2. Claudio555

      Ok thanks

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Just before GW20 for everyone except Salah. After GW21 for Salah

      That's how thing stand atm. They might change

      1. AIRMILES
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Why does Salah get the extra few days?

        1. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          "Pretty please" (if you choose believe that) to Egyptian National Team, and they agreed

          FIFA won't enforce the rule if the national teams themselves decide to forgo their privilege

          1. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            *choose to believe

            My bad. The disbelief got to my typing too

  9. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
    • 9 Years

    Plan is to roll the FT with 2.5m in the bank - All in order with subs? Tough call between King and Dennis.

    Ramsdale

    TAA, Cancelo, James, Dier

    Salah, Jota, Foden, Saka

    Lacazette, King

    Subs: McGovern, Dennis, Guehi, Gallagher

  10. The Units
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Play White or Dennis?

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Dennis. He can always find a way to nick something

      White relies almost entirely on clean sheets, which can be lost to the most random events. Only 4 bonus points this season too, and their attackers might hog BPS again vs Norwich

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        This.

    2. Cojones of Destiny
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      tough as I got Tierney and Dennis, probz one final game for Den before he leaves my team

  11. CABAYE4
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Start Watkins (CHE) or Wilson (MUN)?

    1. Chelsea Rangers Loyal
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I'm going with Wilson, though I will admit to a very slight bias here!

      1. CABAYE4
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I’ve certainly got my own bias feeding in too!

    2. Cojones of Destiny
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Watkins

    3. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Close one. I’d start Watkins because Chelsea aren’t as good defensively as United at this moment.

      1. CABAYE4
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I find it hard to argue with that looking at recent performances/results of those defences.

        Feels wrong when you hear it though given reputations.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Hi all. Any idea when the postponed fixtures for DGW22 and potentially DGW21 will be announced? Just wondering if there's any chance I'd be lucky enough to have them announced before GW20 deadline!

          1. Cojones of Destiny
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            in a week+ time my guess

        • FPLMACKEM
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Triple captain.

          Anyone considering this on Salah for Leeds? I know it's not a double game week but at home against a team who are so wide open feels like a good opportunity.

          1. Amartey Partey
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            I’m not, but I can see why people would. Leeds are poo at the back and Salah has had a rest.

          2. Rupert The Horse

            I’ve seen the odd few. Someone in my mini large already put it on him away to UTD. Paid off.

              Who are these people, how do they do it

                Well he has been a massive Ole out fan for a long time. He’s been convinced they had downed tools way before anyone else started speaking about it. In the run up to it he kept on saying they’d lose by 5 or 6 goals and then surprised us all with the TC.

                1. ChelseaGuy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  That's some great deduction

              Using it for united away is brave and just a bit lucky if you ask me.

              1. Rupert The Horse
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 6 days ago

                You don’t know the build up to it. Making such a master move with such confidence and calling it lucky does it a great injustice. We all respected hi move and applauded it accordingly.

                1. FPLMACKEM
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  Yeah fair play to the guy who done it. Not sure what the thought process was behind it but it's not really the game you would tc.

                  1. Rupert The Horse
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 6 days ago

                    Well it certainly never occurred to me to do it.
                    Then again, he’s not a very good player in general.

          3. FPLMACKEM
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Apart from it being a double game week it meets the criteria for me. You want it on the player with the highest ceiling against a wide open defence.

            My highest triple captain score was on mo in a single game week against Huddersfield in 18/19. 57 points. Last two seasons I've put it on the same player in double game weeks and not scored as high.

          4. DycheDycheBaby
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            No because everyone will captain him anyway. Minimal gain.

            1. FPLMACKEM
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Yeah this is the only thing stopping me really.

              But will everyone not also be captaining him when people triple captain him when a more common time comes to triple captain him?

              1. NateDog
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 6 days ago

                Agreed, unless some use it in the DGW when he's away but I'd say most will FH or BB if using a chip

                1. FPLMACKEM

                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  Yeah most double game weeks will now be occupied by the fh, bb and wc.

            It has also just occurred to me the Liverpool game is the first game if the game week. So we should know if the game actually goes ahead and might get early team news.

            This could work to Ur benefit if players are out due to Covid
            Sit tight and save a transfer
            Then maybe 3 transfers for a 4 point hit will suit

            1. Ando

              True. Thanks mate. I was always going to save my FT this GW after taking an 8 point hit last GW.

              I like B

            Bit of an odd question but looking at the possible DGW fixtures coming up if you were looking for a defensive MU player would you prefer DDG or Telles? DDG probably makes more sense but I already have Ramsdale and am wondering if it makes sense to move him (although his GW21 + 22 fixtures are his worst for a while). Telles may be rotated with Shaw I guess but in terms of planning I feel like he'd make more sense as I want to get rid of Rudiger or Alonso soon.

            1. ChelseaGuy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              I think you already made up your mind there

            2. Collie01
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              I think Dalot is probably a better bet than Telles. Dalot appears first choice whereas Telles was in mainly because Shaw was injured. Early days under Ralf though so the full back positions are still unclear and a bit of a risk.

              1. NateDog
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 6 days ago

                Wasn't AWB also injured most of the games that Dalot played?

            3. CABAYE4
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              In a 3 games in 8 days scenario like most doubles are normally I’d be very surprised if Shaw didn’t start one.

            4. 1-1 at Newcastle
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              I’d want DDG

            5. rozzo
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              DDG on a free hit but I wouldn't buy him outright

              United have 4 clean sheets all season.

              Rather have Ramsdale long term any day.

            6. Amartey Partey
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Telles and Dalot rotation risks.

              1 month, 6 days ago

              Cheers all, guess I'll see how MU line up in the next couple and see what way I'll look like I'll be setting up with overall for GW21+22

            In a bit of a weird spot...
            A) Start Jesus and Alonso
            B) Jesus + Alonso - 4 to CR + Reguillon

            1. DannyDrinkVodka
              • 2 Years

              B is tempting but A is probably the right play

            Morning guys,

            Not many RMT's with Ronaldo in their teams, for me he is the one player id like in for Newcastle's generous defense!

            Are many considering bringing him in or is a case of he is too expensive?

              It's either him or Son for me, my team structure doesn't allow me both.

              Quite a few mids are scoring points at the moment where as the strikers are doing terrible so leaning towards Ronaldo

                      Maybe but next week my plan. Auba back in the fold.

                  Lacazette is not a buy unless you're super desperate for a FWD for 1 week only. I'm 100% selling him next GW
