Rate My Team

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

Postponements, Covid outbreaks, injuries, rotation, quick turnarounds – it’s the most wonderful time of the year, alright.

Yes, another festive Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Gameweek is almost upon us and this one is proving to be one of the trickiest of the season so far, not helped by Arsenal v Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United v Aston Villa being called off.

As is always the case, the comments section of our site is filled with requests for advice on transfer dilemmas and team help. So we’ve asked five-time top 1k finisher and Scout’s Deputy Editor, Tom Freeman, to answer some of them right up until deadline.

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, 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.

    Are Gallagher covid rumors confirmed?

    1. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      21 days, 18 hours ago

      Nope. I saw an independent article that listed a few out and didn't contain Gallagher.

      I'm operating under the assumption he does start.

      I see a lot comments if -4 is worth a risk , in my opinion if it’s 2 players out that are not playing for 2 players in that are then it’s a very good risk , as those players just need to play 60mins without losing points to make the 4 points back . I think the chances of getting the 4 points bakc plus more out weighs the certainty that you’ll get 0 for the non playing players

        In you opinion is it worth a -4 to get a sub in case one of the outfield doesn't play; for example I have Bilva and James.
        I debating this.

            21 days, 43 mins ago

            Prob not as a just Incase sub no

        Don’t see many on here capping Ronaldo. Is that just because many don’t own him?

          B. Maddison
          C.Someone else

          Please help

        3. BrutalLogiC

          A. Bwhite to Reg

          • 1 Year
          21 days, 18 hours ago

          Used FT to bring in Antonio.
          Would you do ESR -> Bowen for a -4?

          1. Echoes
            • 1 Year
            21 days, 18 hours ago

            Hello

          2. Nikolai Volkoff
            • 5 Years
            21 days, 18 hours ago

            Depends on the rest of the team.

        5. Il Capitano
          • 1 Year
          21 days, 18 hours ago

          Not worth doing Guaita out for -4 is it?

        6. gellinmagellan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          21 days, 18 hours ago

          A) Get DDG for -4 to field 11 players
          B) Play 10 with no goalkeeper

          1. aapoman
            • 8 Years
            21 days, 18 hours ago

            A if the keeper is Ramsdale. Bad fixtures after the blank and then blanks 2 times in 3gws.

        7. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          21 days, 18 hours ago

          Wilson Gallagher> Jota King(-4)??
          Even though King stays on the bench

          Chance EVE vs NEW to be postponed?

          DCL fit as starter or bench?

        12. Super John McGinn-
          • 9 Years
          21 days, 18 hours ago

          Ramsdale** (got at 4.5)
          TAA, Cancelo, James, Alonso, Livramento
          Son, Foden, Jota
          Ronaldo, Antonio, Dennis

          Foster, Livramento, ESR, Martinelli

          1 FT 0.5 ITB

          A) Ramsdale > DDG
          B) Foster > Bachman
          C) ESR > Bowen
          D) Ramsdale + ESR > DDG + 6.1 mid (-4)

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          21 days, 18 hours ago

          Best way to fund Ram -> DDG?

          A) Saka -> 5.9 (Benrahma - risky)
          B) Alonso -> 5.3 (Reggy)
          C) Forget DDG and have no keeper this week

          Why is everyone selling Lacazette? Is it because of poor fixtures or are you concerned about his game time?

          Bench one:
          Gallagher (assuming he starts)
          Foden
          Bernardo
          Dennis
