  • Gameweek 27: A possible Double Gameweek if teams with an outstanding match-up are eliminated by the FA Cup fifth-round stage. Four sides, Arsenal, Chelsea, Leicester and Liverpool, will have their weekend matches postponed because of the EFL Cup final, however.
  • Gameweek 28: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Liverpool, Leicester (if they are still in the Conference League) and Norwich (if Leicester are still in the Conference League)
  • Gameweek 29: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Chelsea, Man Utd, Leicester (if they are still in the Conference League) and Norwich (if Leicester are still in the Conference League)
  • Gameweek 30: No chance of a Double Gameweek and a near-certain chance of it being a Blank Gameweek, as it will clash with the FA Cup quarter-finals.
  • Gameweek 33: A free midweek does allow for a Double Gameweek, although the weekend games do clash with the FA Cup semi-finals, too.
  • Gameweek 36: A free midweek allows for a Double Gameweek. This is likely to be the biggest Double Gameweek of the season.

*Aston Villa v Burnley or Leeds v Aston Villa could be played on Saturday/Sunday February 5/6. That would mean either the Gameweek 24 deadline being brought forward a few days or the fixture being tagged onto the end of Gameweek 23.

    Is this team enough of a mess to use the 2nd WC this GW when the doubles are announced or is it better to save for DGWs later in the season? Still have both FH, BB and TC chips as well.

    DDG Bachmann
    TAA Cancelo James White Liv
    Son Jota Bilva Mbuemo McArthur
    Ron Antonio Hwang

    1FT 1.5ITB

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 20 hours ago

      Hwang and Mbeumo only real issues , get King and Maddison?

      1. Werner Bros
        • 6 Years
        29 days, 20 hours ago

        I was going to do Mbuemo > Maddison but haven't had news on his injury yet? Hwang > King is also a good shout thanks. I would like to offload McArthur as well as he's been burning a hole in my bench for months. Would like to replace Bilva, James as well but I suppose these aren't too pressing for the time being.

    2. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 20 hours ago

      I'd WC that team, but somehow you already have some potential DGWer in 21 like DDG,Ron,Ant, McArthur (if fit). So I'd also consider taking hits to remove Hwang, Mbeumo and Bilva, and replace them with Bowen, Lei/Eve mid and Broja/Eduoard. Tough choice, good luck!

      1. Werner Bros
        • 6 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        My thinking as well of going with FTs and potentially some hits to replace Hwang/Mbuemo/Bilva by 22. Any news on the McArthur injury? Still saying unknown return on PL site so wasn't expecting him back any time soon.

      What’s your template rating on livefpl? I can’t imagine you’re less than 70%, so just fix a couple of fires with a -4

    4. Marty McFly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      I wouldn’t be in a rush go wc that team

      1. Marty McFly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        To*

  2. TimoTime
    • 2 Years
    29 days, 20 hours ago

    Gallagher, Rudiger > Raphina, Reguillon for -4?

    Can’t upgrade Gallagher without a hit unfortunately and also keen to get off double Chelsea defence finally

    1. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 20 hours ago

      Huh, Gallagher has nice fixtures… and isn’t Raph meant to be off soon? I’d just do Rudi to Reg and no hit

      1. TimoTime
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 20 hours ago

        Where’s Raph off to?

        Just a bit worried that Gallagher is going to be out of training etc and therefore won’t jump straight back into the starting 11

        1. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 20 hours ago

          Rumour is Raph is off to Bayern.

          1. TimoTime
            • 2 Years
            29 days, 19 hours ago

            Oh wow, hadn’t seen those rumours. Fair play if true, he’s a cut above the rest at Leeds

          2. Milkman Bruno
            • 1 Year
            29 days, 19 hours ago

            Raphina isn’t off to Bayern. Rafina is (from PSG) I thought ?

        2. FourLokoLeipzig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          Yeah, could be just rumours about Raph, but don’t think the upside is worth the risk. Obviously things change a bit if Gallagher (who I also have) is ruled out and you’re at risk of not getting 11 out

    "We’ve had plenty ‘blanks’ in Fantasy Premier League"

    What happened to the word "of"? Was this written by an American?

    1. PlayPercentage

      29 days, 20 hours ago

      >Was this written by an American?<
      It could of.

    2. thegaffer82

      29 days, 20 hours ago

      Typo which wasn’t picked up by the editors I’m guessing.

      Journalistic quality is decreasing across the board I feel, as the Media re-adjusts to a new paradigm and tries in vain to compete with user-led media.

      The amount of mistakes I see in Manchester Evening News and even the Guardian is astounding to me

      1. FourLokoLeipzig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        The Guardian’s been sloppy on that front for as long as I remember. And the MEN was never the same after Orwell left

    3. European Bob
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      I get ya, should be "we of had plenty..."

    4. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Nitpicking. Really helpful article from Neale.

  4. thegaffer82
    • 10 Years
    29 days, 20 hours ago

    I haven’t checked a price change website in soooo long. This season in particular, I just couldn’t care less about people dropping or going up in price as it’s suicide to make early transfers.

    And yet, I noticed Bowen has gone up in price last night.

    The GW hasn’t even finished yet, and plenty of days before the next deadline.
    What’s the strategy here for people making early transfers? Do they know that you don’t get to ‘cash in’ the money at the end of the season? Do they know there’s no prizes for highest team value?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 20 hours ago

      There’s pretty much no prizes for anything. I wonder why we do it sometimes.

      1. thegaffer82
        • 10 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Lol… made me chuckle that.

        You’re absolutely right. I simply play for bragging rights over ML rivals and out of sheer dogmatic habit 🙂

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          Check and check.

          In your note, I still don’t know why so many make early transfers.

    2. MissouriMarten
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 20 hours ago

      It seems to be an obsession for some players of the game. There are those who post pretty much daily on the 'Price Changes' HTs with how many risers and fallers they have in their squad. Each to their own, but I just don't get it.

    3. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      It's crazy, 9 price increases last night.. 12 decreases. In the middle of the gw with games being called off all the time.

    4. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      As yesterday was the start of a gameweek, the price rise could also take into account transfers made before the deadline and not just early transfers for the upcoming gameweek

    5. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Well the GW only started yesterday so many of the price changes could have been driven by pre-deadline activity. Have stopped checking fplstats also since Covid cancellations began

    6. just a man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      A lot of the volume was in the morning before the deadline.

      But I do think the threshold for increase could be higher. Feels like knee-jerkers impact the game negatively for the rest of us.

    7. Shattered Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      I’ve made all but one of my moves this season either on the day of the deadline or the day before. I still enjoy the fact my team value is relatively strong, though I’m not chasing improving it.

  5. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
    • 8 Years
    29 days, 20 hours ago

    So the article basically says there are a lots of DGWs due but nobody knows when

    1. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 20 hours ago

      In a very long winded and informative way - yes.

    2. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      'FPL Blank and Double Gameweeks: What we know so far'

      Fk all.

      But sure we wrote an article to keep our advertisers happy...

    3. Fabreghastly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Anyone tracking Crellin knows this but there are so many comments asking about DGW timing, which teams etc

      The existence of mass Crellinlessnes was probably what drove the writing of the article

  6. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 8 Years
    29 days, 20 hours ago

    Any Villa fans around? What’s the plan for Ings? Feels like Watkins should own that CFW spot by now. Gone in January?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      He’s only just joined.

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 8 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        True but it’s a bit of a problem if they want to keep playing 4-3-3.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          Nah. He’s useful enough for the price.

    2. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      3-5-2, 4-2-2-2, 4-4-2 diamond, 4-2-4 are options with the available players

      They don't have enough wingers anyway, so CF + SS is a viable pairing

      They won't sell Ings

      1. popey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        be amazed if we went 3 at the back again, not Gerrards style and dont think it suits our squad at all

    3. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Just see him as an impact sub when most are fit - should get gametime next few weeks mind with Watkins wide though as missing loads of wide players - El Ghazi not favoured, Traore/Trez AFCON, Bailey injured and Beundia not been setting the world alight.

      Ings/Watkins partnership miles away from clicking though

      Could see Ings leaving in summer tbh

  7. NABIL - FPL otai

    Any chance United Vs Burnley getting postponed now?

      I hope not, also went for De Gea and have Ronaldo.

      Main rival has neither and is 1pt ahead.

    WAT apparently selling tickets for their game against Palace on 5/1.

    DGWs for 21 should be announced soon.

      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Great, there’s a set of players from teams I don’t want ANY players from…

      I suppose Edouard or King may be worth a look…

    4. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      So that gives unofficially leaked:

      Palace vs Watford
      Villa vs Burnley
      Southampton vs Brentford
      Everton vs Leicester

            • 10 Years

        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Yeah FA cup still on for United on the Mon so it's hard to see how they'd get a DGW that week unless they move back the FA cup game to a Sat/Sun

        1. Marty McFly
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          Mon 3/01 vs Wolves, PL (Sky)
          Mon 10/01 vs Villa, FACup (BBC)
          Sat 15/01 vs Villa, PL (Sky)

          Those games won’t move with them being televised.

          The only option I can see for a Man Utd dgw would to be to play it on Thu 06/01. Not sure if that’s an option. That’s 8 days out now, so would need to be announced tonight/tomorrow to be practical. Even then, it’s last minute.

    How nailed is Marcal? Is he playing only because Ait Nouri is out?

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Not nailed. and yes.

    2. Fabreghastly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      It was the other way round but Ait Nouri was impressive when Marcal was out so couldn't get his spot back. The same thing could happen

    You know your career is not on the best trajectory when even Newcastle don't want you. Poor Dele Alli.

      Tbf for the past year he looks like he’s been working on his latest trap mixtape….

      Probably worst example of a professional footballer in the top flight today

      It's difficult to put your finger on what's happened to him, must just be a yard of pace thats affected his game which is surprising considering he's still young

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Maybe it was somebody putting their finger on him is what happened to him.

      I once got in contact with Tottenham and suggested when they open the new stadium to name their little food strip Deli Alley.

      He's been playing like he's not enjoying football for the last few years now. Gives the impression of being more preoccupied with his life outside the football pitch

        When he first started playing for Spurs he used to go back and see his mates in MK all the time. I suspect he hasnt for a while

      Hugely underrated player in my opinion. His movement off the ball is fantastic, just needs the right system and manager to get the best out of him.

  11. JBG

    Totally forgot that there are matches tonight, kinda gave up this GW after that wonderful Liverpool match yesterday. Despite having Che, MC and MU assets left.

    1. DA Minnion (Former great)
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Last night was a complete let down.

      1. JBG
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        It killed all my joy for this GW.

    So any 3rd round FA cup ties postponed due to Covid will have to be played midweek of GW22 also. Bound to be some games hit thus ruining some teams chances of a DGW

    1. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      example Burnley vs Everton moves to GW22 and Burnley have a DGW. We stock up on Burnley players. Burnley vs Huddersfield in FA cupis postponed at last minute and Burnley vs Everton is off again leaving us little wriggle room as the GW21 deadline has passed and we already made plans for Burnley players.

      1. jammie26
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        I don't think I'll be stocking up on Burnley players even if they do have a DGW.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          Yeah, if they have about 5 consecutive DGWs, I might start looking at them 😉

  13. Fit_to_drop
    • 2 Years
    29 days, 19 hours ago

    At 340k, 2FT's, .4 ITB, 106.6TV

    What 2-3 transfers should i be looking at subject to no cancellations and pending DGW announcements...

    DDG
    Rüdiger James TAA Cancelo
    Gallagher Bernardo Son Salah Jota
    Dennis

    Steele Broja Watkins Tierney

    1. Lanley Staurel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Ask again after DGWs announced.

    2. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      To sell list (in no particular order)…

      Salah, Dennis (both going to Afcon)
      Tierney, Rudi, James (fixtures & blanks coming)
      Bilva (not a good pick any longer)

      I’d play Broja this week too. Had a rest in last game and actually looks a brilliant player….

      1. Fit_to_drop
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Super - just what i was looking for. Thanks for taking the time and for the steer on this weeks selection

      2. Fit_to_drop
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Agree on Broja. I signed him after his first goal. Hassenhutl seems to like his direct approach too and he is prob #1 for Saints now I suspect.

    Itchy to WC (2nd one), is it worth it for this team? Happy to take -8 or -12 for DGW players btw ...

    Lloris (Ramsdale)
    TAA Cancelo James Dalot (Tsimikas)
    Jota Foden Bernardo (ESR Martinelli)
    Antonio Watkins Ronaldo

    Plan is Bernardo + ESR > DGW players ... once announced 😛

    1. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      A WC without Son or Kane.....

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        That's not the WC team, that's my current team

    2. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Looks very similar to a lot of teams around here.

      Not worth a WC unless we get some big announcements regarding upcoming DGW’s.

      No way I’m playing a chip before we know what’s going on in the next few weeks…

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Yeah surely awaiting for news ... boring isn't it? Can't plan can't discuss ... not FPL that I knew of 😛

    3. Fit_to_drop
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Your post reads like you want to wildcard TO that team

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        I know when reading it again, sorry folks

    4. Fit_to_drop
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Thats a decent side. I would sit on it and work with that team for longer. WC will be very useful later in season

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        That's what I feel it's a decent side but somehow slipping the rank from 160K to 300K in two weeks with all these postponements and stuffs ... ah well need patient probably

    5. griffzinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Don’t wildcard until dust settles after GW24. Covid weather settling after Winter peak. Chelsea back from WCC and then when you wildcard load up on the teams who have the least games played. Can plan for a strong 14 GW finish with a good wildcard then.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Good advice ... previous season I used the WC early to correct many things and it worked well. Not sure with that team I need massive correction? Just not able to plan is the problem this time.

  16. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 19 hours ago

    How nailed is Dalot? Will AWB get a chance?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      For now at least ... not sure what's gonna happen with those lots of players in the brink of Jan transfer window

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        I'm looking for a Rudiger replacement and I already have Cancelo and TAA.

        1. griffzinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          Lowton. Four games in hand. Put funds elsewhere. If not then Eric Dier and funds leftover. If you want a premium pick go with Robertson. Pool will become more defensively focused with Salah/Mane out for Afcon. Full backs will still be an outlet though.

          1. Bobby Digital
            • 4 Years
            29 days, 19 hours ago

            Cheers! Good stuff.

          2. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            29 days, 19 hours ago

            Yeah Lowton, Lamptey, Dier/Sanchez

        2. sulldaddy
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          Reguilon maybe.
          Or one of the AV defenders. Good matchups coming

    2. griffzinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Most of Newcastles attack were down United’s right hand side for a reason.

    3. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Can’t see him being nailed on at all.

      AWB still around, has his own qualities and cost Utd a lot of money.

      Probably best to avoid Utd DF except DDG, or maybe Maguire who seems to be made of Teflon

    4. Shattered Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Thought he was very poor on Monday.

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Yeah not impressed

  17. Mr Ozil
    • 7 Years
    29 days, 19 hours ago

    Do you guys think James will start tonight’s game?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Why wouldn't he?

      1. bigwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        played 90 mins less than 72 hrs ago

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Cameo ... based on nothing 😆 just guts

    3. bigwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      I think it's likely Azpi or CHO comes in for him, i'd say 50/50

      1. Mr Ozil
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        With Thiago out injured, don’t you think the back 3 will be

        Rudiger Christensen and Azpi?

        1. bigwig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          aye, very possibly but there's also Chalobah who's been getting some opportunities

    4. Fabreghastly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Yes

    5. griffzinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      I think Tuchel has to go full strength in every league game. City are relentless. I think James might start on the left though. Azpi on the right. That’s from an Alonso owner.

  18. Dynamic Duos
    • 8 Years
    29 days, 19 hours ago

    Best midfielder with dgwks in mind up to 6.6m?

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      moura - though not a proven FPL asset

    2. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Bowen 6.6 gotta be up there as a priority id say

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Gray at 5.5 worth a tickle too

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 8 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          Yeah I was looking at him as straight swap for Martinelli and no -4

      2. Dynamic Duos
        • 8 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Only one double though? I have Benny and Antonio to

        1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          Ah i see mate, would say Gallagher but I sure is he rested or has COVID??

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Bowen, Moura, Maddison, Gallagher, JWP 😛

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 8 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Maddison to much and a doubt no? along with Gallagher? Like the other 3 though

    4. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      It's not the most inspiring bunch. I went with Tielemans. Others to consider are JWP or Gray.

  19. Kodap
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 19 hours ago

    Need a decent score from the following players tonight to rocket me up the ranks! Huge differential in KDB (c) please come through!

    Cancelo, James, Rudiger, Bilva & Captain Kev

    1. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Rumors going round that Cancelo didn’t train. But you should get a good run for your money on the rest

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Neither did Rodri Walker Zincheko or Dias

      2. griffzinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Always rumours. Tbh I think Pep gives certain players time off training as they don’t need it. There was an article on how KDB does minimal team training so as to be fresh for games. Same could be said for Cancelo really.

        1. bigwig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          yep, quite likely

      3. CROWLEY NOT CRAWLEY
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Then got some confirmation Cancelo did train...

        https://twitter.com/City_Xtra/status/1475833958680211457

      4. Cok3y5murf
        • 5 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        The account that tweeted that later tweeted that he did

      5. Gentle_Turks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Man City confirmed on Twitter that Cancelo was available for this game.

    2. Fabreghastly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      A quarter to a half of the game will 'rocket' with you for all those players bar Kev. He's your rocket man

      For me it's Alonso. A Ronnie no-show might help, too, even though I own him

  20. Dynamic Duos
    • 8 Years
    29 days, 19 hours ago

    Who wins a or b?

    A) DDG +1
    B) Sanchez and Jesus

    1. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      God knows.
      If Jesus plays, probably B).
      But who knows with Pep right?

    2. griffzinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Keep Sanchez. People are banking on Uniteds defence. Newcastle shredded them last time. Not solid at all and im a Utd fan.

  21. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 19 hours ago

    Trying to fit Kane into my team... Will need to make some serious sacrifices.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      For me easy Ronaldo > Kane

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        I'll need 3 transfers to get there.

  22. Danstoke82
    • 7 Years
    29 days, 19 hours ago

    With Maddison out what about this move?

    Gallagher > Lookman 1FT?

    Yay or Nay?

    1. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      I like it. Wait until we get news on DGWs if possible.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Maddison out, official?

      1. bigwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        It looked very much like a calf strain, I'd say he's as good as out of the next match and likely out for 3-4 weeks minimum

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 19 hours ago

      Need more info on both Maddison and Gallagher

      1. Danstoke82
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Thanks all.

        No official news on Maddison yet but can’t imagine that Rodgers will start him if he’s carrying an injury

  23. Collie01
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 19 hours ago

    At a bit of a loose end. Hit me up with any FPL questions, queries, RMTs etc.

    1. Lanley Staurel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Have you all the answers?!!!

      1. Collie01
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        No answers, just opinions and occasional insights!

    2. Meechoo115
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        See my Bench quandary below !!

      • thegaffer82
        • 10 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        ………Lloris
        …TAA - James - Cancelo
        Foden - Jota - Bilva - Bowen
        …CR7 - Antonio - Broja

        Subs: Alonso - ESR - Liv
        1FT & 1.7itb

        Who to captain?
        Correct subs & bench order?

        I’ll be making transfer decisions at last minute…

        1. Collie01
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          I think bench order is correct.

          Not confident in Bilva going forward so maybe think about moving him on with FT.

          I would probably captain Ronaldo. Could have DGW which would make it an obvious move.

          1. thegaffer82
            • 10 Years
            29 days, 19 hours ago

            Yep. Bilva on the chopping block for sure. Problem is he’s in a BIG queue…

            (James, Alonso, ESR, Bilva and even CR7 can all go!)

            1. Collie01
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              29 days, 19 hours ago

              Yes, you have lots of good players who unfortunately look to be nearing the end of their prime period of potential (Chelsea, Arsenal, Bilva).

      • Tonyawesome69
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Here you go

        Interested in what moves you would suggest with 2FT 0ITB

        Ramsdale
        Cancelo James Alonso TAA
        Jota Foden Salah Bernardo
        Antonio Watkins
        (Foster Gallagher King Livramento)

        1. Collie01
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          Alonso to Reguilon, maybe Bernardo to Bowen.

          1. Collie01
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            29 days, 19 hours ago

            Or Alonso to Cash, depending on DGW news.

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 3 Years
              29 days, 19 hours ago

              Good suggestions. All moves I had in mind. Salah to Son is on the cards along with Bernardo to Bowen.

      • Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Considering the likely dgw fixtures for 21 who are you targeting?

          I think West Ham and Leicester are good to target. Antonio and Bowen looked sharp, albeit against Watford. Lookman is on my watchlist, already have Tielemans. I like Cash for those looking for a defender.

            29 days, 19 hours ago

            Broja and King are ready made cheap strikers. DCL on my watchlist but probably too early to bring him in just yet. Demarai Gray a potential good budget midfielder.

      • Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Ramsdale/DDG
        Dias/Cancelo/Trent/James/Reguilon
        Jota/Son/Bowen/Bilva/ESR
        Watkins/Antonio/Hwang

        Thinking 1st FH in 21 and then hits for 22. Do you think this is optimal approach for this squad, if not what would you do?

          I really can't say what's optimal in terms of FH use when the fixtures haven't been announced yet. But on first glance, I don't think you need to FH that team for 21. Maybe ESR and Hwang out for the likes of King/Broja and mid of choice.

            Hmm ok thanks, yeah Hwang has got to get tf out

      Are we gonna get the full set of press conferences before the next gw? Curious about the status of Maddison, Tomiyasu & Gallagher

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Likely to be over the next 2 days

      2. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Gallagher for a double against West Ham and Watford

        Maddison for Norwich and Everton

    4. Meechoo115
        29 days, 19 hours ago

        Which three to bench this week? Ignoring any potential doubles for now?

        A. Trent (che)
        B. James (LIV)
        C. Alonso (LIV)
        D. Martinelli (MCI)
        E. Livra (NEW)
        F. Cancelo (ars)
        G. Eduoard (WHU)
        H. Bernardo (ars)
        I. Antonio (cpl)
        J. Odegaard (MCI)

        For completeness other outfields are Foden. Jota. Ronaldo.

        Currently on James. Alonso. Ode

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 3 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          CEJ

        2. Lemonade
          • 1 Year
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          I plan on playing Ode

        3. Collie01
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          Probably Odegard, Martinelli and Alonso for me.

          I'm actually considering benching Jota this week. Sounds mad, but I have a feeling Firmino will start vs Chelsea.

          1. Collie01
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            29 days, 19 hours ago

            Or bench Livra actually.

        4. European Bob
          • 9 Years
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          C, D and J

          1. Meechoo115
              29 days, 19 hours ago

              Thanks. Isn’t alonso more of a threat than James?

            I dont see ars scoring and ESR has got to be back starting...right?

        5. Lemonade
          • 1 Year
          29 days, 19 hours ago

          hey folks,
          Bit random but what's your take on Gündogan?

          1. Meechoo115
              29 days, 19 hours ago

              Not for now given doubles coming up.

              1. Lemonade
                • 1 Year
                29 days, 19 hours ago

                would you rather have him or Mount? as in for later, assuming both stay fit

                1. Meechoo115
                    29 days, 19 hours ago

                    Later probably Mount with Foden

              2. Tonyawesome69
                • 3 Years
                29 days, 19 hours ago

                Solid pick into city mid. I wouldn't be looking to bring him in at the moment with doubles around the corner

              3. bigwig

                • 11 Years
                29 days, 19 hours ago

                With KDB back and Bilva sparkling he'll get heavily rotated with them and is probably third choice out of those 2 positions

              I've just found Locadia hanging off the end of my bench. He's the one to save my gameweek, isn't he?

              Can anyone top 4pts with 5 to play?

                29 days, 19 hours ago

                Sheeeeeeeeeeet

                That’s pretty bad. But at least it’s a low scoring GW so far.

                Imagine that score with a 50pt average!

                Any team leaks, gents? Do we think the naughty boy starts tonight?

                  • 8 Years
                  29 days, 19 hours ago

                  Foden and Grealish will both start, then they are off out on the lash

                2. thegaffer82
                  • 10 Years
                  29 days, 19 hours ago

                  Which naughty boy? There’s 2!

                  Grealish & Foden.

                  Fancy Foden to start tonight personally, no idea about Grealish.

                  29 days, 19 hours ago

                  Do you guys think Foden and Laporte will start?

                  1. Meechoo115
                      29 days, 19 hours ago

                      Yes

                      29 days, 19 hours ago

                      Hoping Foden starts as my captain but possibly not, Laporte could be rotated with Ake but CB's are normally rotated less so I'd say both will start but it's Pep roulette
