Cash an FPL differential for Gameweek 21 and beyond

Gameweek 21 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) is almost upon us which gives us an opportunity to have a look at some more differential options.

This time, we’ve selected low-owned picks at Leicester City, Burnley and Aston Villa, who we think have the potential to make an impact.

As always, to qualify, the player must have an ownership of 5% or less at the time of writing.

*Please note that this article was written before the postponement of Leicester’s clash with Norwich City and the Double Gameweek 21 announcement.

MATTHEW LOWTON

  • FPL ownership: 1.7%
  • Price: £4.4m
  • GW21-25 fixtures: lee | LEI | ars | MUN | LIV

On first glance, investing in a Burnley defender ahead of Gameweek 21 probably doesn’t make much sense, with games against Manchester United x2, Leeds United, Leicester City and Arsenal in the next five.

However, Sean Dyche’s side also have four matches still to be rearranged after being hit by Covid and weather postponements – Everton (h), Aston Villa (a), Watford (h) and Tottenham Hotspur (h) – which suggests they should see plenty of Double Gameweek action early next year.

That raises the appeal of budget defender Matthew Lowton (£4.4m), who has already produced four attacking returns across his 15 Premier League appearances this season. The right-back also features amongst the top three performers at his club for big chances created and final-third touches, plus defensive metrics like tackles won, interceptions, recoveries and clearances.

Burnley remain in the bottom three but do have up to four games in hand on some of their relegation rivals, whilst it’s also worth noting that they have only lost one of their last six games, albeit with four draws. During that run, they have kept clean sheets against Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United, conceding just six goals in total, with their 7.90 expected goals conceded (xGC) figure ranking ninth amongst all teams when applying the ‘last six matches’ filter.

Priced at just £4.4m, Lowton offers a cheap route into Burnley’s defence, and could be a nice set and forget option given his potential for future Doubles.

MATTY CASH

Five-time top 1k FPL finisher Tom Freeman on Villa under Gerrard and his Gameweek 13 plans 4
  • FPL ownership: 4.3%
  • Price: £5.0m
  • GW21-25 fixtures: bre | MUN | eve | LEE | new

Matty Cash (£5.0m) has played an integral role for Aston Villa since the appointment of Steven Gerrard.

During that time, his team have conceded just eight goals in seven matches, despite a tough schedule which has included games against all of the current top three: Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool.

And that improved defensive stability, combined with the 24-year-olds attacking threat from wide areas, could make him a shrewd differential pick for Fantasy managers.

In recent weeks, Villa have been defending much better, which is reflected in the numbers. Over their last seven matches, they have allowed just 6.69 non-pen xGC and also kept clean sheets against Brighton and Hove Albion and Norwich City.

However, Cash’s appeal is further boosted by his attacking threat. Since the beginning of the season, the right-back ranks second amongst all defenders for penalty area touches, sixth for attempts in the box and ninth for final-third touches. For context, his 14 shots in the box is only one behind team-mate Danny Ings (£7.7m).

Villa now face a Brentford side who have failed to score in each of their last two matches and will once again be without the influential Rico Henry (£4.5m), who usually operates on the side Cash will be attacking. It’s also worth noting that fixtures against Watford (h), Brighton and Hove Albion (a) and Southampton (h) follow the ones detailed above, and as a result, it’s no surprise to see Gerrard’s side topping our Season Ticker for ease of fixture between Gameweeks 21 and 28.

Cash is an exciting footballer, and with his ability to contribute points at both ends of the pitch, is a tempting investment given Villa’s schedule.

YOURI TIELEMANS

Vardy injury latest as Tielemans keeps up fine FPL form
  • FPL ownership: 3.8%
  • Price: £6.4m
  • GW21-25 fixtures: NOR | bur | BHA | liv | WHU

Belgium international Youri Tielemans (£6.4m) has developed into one of the best box-to-box midfielders in the Premier League since his move to Leicester City.

Across his 14 league appearances in 2021/22, he has produced five goals and two assists. As a result, his 5.0 points per match tally is more than team-mates James Maddison (£6.9m) and Jamie Vardy (£10.4m), plus others in his category like Jarrod Bowen (£6.6m) and Bukayo Saka (£6.3m). Notably, he has also posted team-leading totals for chances created, touches in the opponent’s half and successful crosses, while his all-round ability lends itself to bonus points, with only three midfielders in the entire division collecting more than his 11 this term.

Following Tuesday’s 1-0 win over Liverpool, the Foxes’ now face a Norwich City side that has failed to score in any of their last five matches, conceding a whopping 14 goals in the process, with an appealing trip to Burnley to follow. There are also two further games to be rearranged due to Covid postponements – Everton (a) and Tottenham Hotspur (h) – which raises the prospect of a Double Gameweek.

The injury situation at Leicester certainly isn’t ideal, with manager Brendan Rodgers recently slamming the festive fixture schedule as “ridiculous”. However, if Gameweek 21 does indeed come too soon for Vardy, who limped off against Liverpool and will be assessed ahead of the visit of Norwich, it may give Tielemans’s prospects a further boost, as it’s highly likely he will be on penalties.

Tielemans has been a crucial player for a while now, and having been handed a first-half rest earlier this week, should be raring to go in Gameweek 21.

    Fck me all these Covid postponements are making me dislike this season more and more. Not really fun or motivating with all the unknown chaos.

    1. DavidBadWillie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Just wait till the last hour to make transfers.

      Set an alarm

      1. JBG
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        That's what I'm doing... These last 2-3 deadlines I've sat on my phone refreshing Twitter for last minute news. For like 30mins. But that's just no fun and kinda annoying tbh.

        1. Pep bites Kun
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          It's very annoying. Really disliking it

    2. Fantabulous KdB
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      It's a challenge yes, but an opportunity as well

      1. ‘Tis the Season
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        This guy knows! It’s a great opportunity to make up ground. I’m personally up to 24k from 300k 3 weeks ago..

        1. JBG
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Yeah ofc.. but it's like being blind in a room filled with 1million dollars spread around but also filled with traps. You don't what you're going to get.

        2. Pep bites Kun
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          That's good going. Luck fell your way or there was additional skill involved iyo?

      2. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        It is, if you want to spend more time at the game, but most play it for fun. However, if you want to do well & capitalise on the possible opportunities, then I guess you have to put in the extra graft. Same for all hobbies & past-times. Ah well .. on we go

    3. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Last season was worse with no spectators. Home advantage was completely gone and playing the fixtures was really hard.

      1. JBG
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah sure, but at least your players didn't suddenly have no matches to play in the middle of a GW. Which is way worse and out of your control.

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Incorrect info. Yes they did. Match postponed after deadline and I lost 5 or 6 players.

          1. JBG
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 17 days ago

            Really? Can't remember that happened last season :/?

    4. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Last season was worse for me.

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Ditto

    5. Salahlulijah
      • 3 Years

      Cry me a river

      1. JBG
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        That's the spirit

    6. bso
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Far worse for those of us who live in California. Have to be up by 2.30am lol.

      1. JBG
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Well that's just fcked.

      2. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Now that's commitment! Think I'd prefer the 4hr lie-in 😉

    7. Athletico Underachieving
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Yeah same I like to plan my moves and have a long term plan, but instead I’ve ended up with 9 players the past 3 weeks due to sudden postponements

  2. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Got two freebies, thinking (got 3.5m itb:

    Rudiger -> Cash
    Bernardo -> Bowen

    Good moves? I know Cash is on 4 yellows, but willing to risk it.

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Go for it

    2. WHUFCSmith23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Like it a lot

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Would rather get a Spurs defender than Cash. More upcoming doubles.

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Would have to be Dier in that case to be certain of starts... That could work.

  3. Fantabulous KdB
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    What would you suggest for this week? 3.9 itb

    DDG
    TAA Cancelo Rudi
    Son(c) Jota Bilva Foden Bowen
    Antonio Watkins

    Foster Dennis Livra White

    a) Bilva > Maddison
    b) Bilva > Tielemans
    c) Dennia > Broja
    d) Save FT and get Kane or KdB following week

    350 OR and some differential will help to keep pushing

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      A

      1. Fantabulous KdB
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        That is what I have unless there is a DGW news

    2. AC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      C looks good and bench bilva or jota

      1. Fantabulous KdB
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Cheers, that could work as well. Newcastle is as leaky as Norwich.

  4. WHUFCSmith23
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 17 days ago

    I don't have twitter... (yeah I know, I'm one of those idiots). Could somebody please let me know who may be getting a double game week soon.

    Assuming Tottenham and Burnley?

    1. DavidBadWillie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Nobody knows. Come back in a couple of days pal.

      1. WHUFCSmith23
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Fair enough, cheers fella

    2. asr
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Not an at idiot at all, actually quite sane if you ask me!

      Burnley and Everton are looking like the most likely at the moment for DGW21, but anything can change (and considering how this season is going, it almost definitely will!).

    3. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Don’t have Twitter = idiot ?

      I think you’ve got your ideas completely muddled there.

    4. ‘Tis the Season
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Twitter is toxic! Sesspool of juvenile knob jockeys to be frank

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Useful for quick info, video and niche interests that other media ignore.

        Also the wild west of social media. Wouldn't let kids anywhere near it. Full of pretty extreme stuff and images.

    5. WHUFCSmith23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Cheers all

    6. Salahlulijah
      • 3 Years

      You don’t need Twitter to Google Ben Crellin and find his prediction charts (coming from a non Twitter user myself)

    Is lookman as good an option as tielmans at the moment with Barnes and Maddis out?

    1. Scholes Out For Summer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      maddison will be fit but likely substituted early. Tielemans Lookman Maddison are all good options

    2. Traction Engine Foot
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Maddison is fit and Barnes may be back. Lookman seems a decent punt but I'm not sure about his minutes

      1. Scholes Out For Summer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        I think he'll be nailed honestly, especially with Vardy. I expect Rodgers to roll out 4231 against Norwich and Everton since he has no CBs so he cant play his 3 atb.

        Lookman right, Barnes left, Nacho Striker Maddison in the 10

    3. just a man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      His goal on Tue was *chef kiss* and Madison confirmed fit.

    4. Fantabulous KdB
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Lookman is not a regular starter yet so a bit risky

    5. Sting in the Tail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Rumours Norwich want Saturday’s game postponed

  6. Finding Timo

    Sorry late to the party but am I correct that most likely DGW1 are Watford, sou, Brentford, Everton, Leicester? (Plus 1 more?)

    1. just a man

  7. Fpl_Ludwig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Thoughts on this WC?

    It feels like Jota is the only player i’m missing

    Or should i do DDG -> Sanchez?

    Squad:
    DDG
    TAA - Cancelo - Thomas - Targett
    Foden - Maddison - Son - Bowen
    Watkins - Kane

    Bench: Sá - Raph - Lamptey - King

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I'd go jota over foden. But looks good otherwise

    2. sulldaddy
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Why Raph? Rumors of looming transfer out of EPL.
      Drop him for Jota if you cN afford

  8. Traction Engine Foot
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Best to save ft here for now?

    DDG
    TAA Cancelo Reguilon Targett
    Salah Son Foden Jota Maddison
    Broja

    Sanchez King Edouard Lamptey

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years

      Looks good

      1. Fantabulous KdB
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        gtg

  9. waltzingmatildas
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Best pick
    A) bowen
    B) maddison
    C) both for a hit

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Who would you sell if getting both?

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        ESR and gundo...

        1. Traction Engine Foot
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          I'd do it then

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Yep both of those are easy sells.

    2. Ray85
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      C unless you have Antonio

    3. Scholes Out For Summer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Both

    4. Sting in the Tail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      A

  10. Scholes Out For Summer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Who to sell first out of these 3? Gundo, Bernardo, Alonso. Currently leaning Bernardo first as I think Gundo will come in for the Arsenal game, surely?!

    Would look to get in a Leicester mid, Gray, or Moura, and most likely Cash or Spurs defender for Alonso

    1. Ray85
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Bilva

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Bilva

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Think it really depends what DGWs get announced, if any.

      1. Scholes Out For Summer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        yeah totally. But more concerned about who goes first instead of whos coming in right now

    1. Ray85
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Reason why people should wait before making transfers!

      1. BullDogTevez
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Fact

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Yep, just seen that Norwich are trying to postpone until May.

      https://twitter.com/JasonBourne1986/status/1476575960308887552?t=C5WUdk-1n6XfGww-EpUQPw&s=19

      1. BullDogTevez
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Becoming a joke now.

        Save all chips until latter half of season when games must be played.

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I will take this opportunity to remind people Ben think LEI/EVE may have happened as a DGW in 21, so even if Norwich were cancelled, it may not be a blank. Better announce it quick though.

      Absolute guesswork from me though.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Good point

        But Norwich makes it more attractive.

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          So much more. I can't change my own fate, got Maddy in last week!

    I want Son & Maddy, but can’t have both.
    Dilemmas!

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Just get Son.

      1. AC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Agreed makes sense

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      That may have been solved^

  12. Zim0

    Maddison or Bowen?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Bowen

    2. Camino Aleatorio

      There are some Cats saying that Norwich has Virus Outbreak, they need a break before their next 0-5 drubbing

    Hi. Is it possible that dgw21 may be announced after the gw21 deadline?

    Might we be in a position where we have to bet on which teams likely to double (via crellin info) before we make the transfers?

    Thinking esp re maddison- even tho I'm reading Leicester v Norwich in doubt due to covid. Crazy situation!

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Definitely possible

      1. pablo discobar
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Surely they have to give fans notice

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Yes, and tv broadcasters need to share that info also in time.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I don't think so tbh.

    3. Scholes Out For Summer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      happened last season so dont think why it cant this season

    4. Sting in the Tail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I wonder if the games fall in the 2nd midweek they’ll form an additional game week rather than a double.

  14. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    It does defy logic to be speculating on double game weeks when so many clubs are struggling to field a team for one game.

    This may be the hesitation and hold up.

    Also crowds in stadiums may be a concern with a lack of testing equipment available right now.

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I'm wondering that too

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Taking hits for games that are at risk to be postponed is bad policy, yes. But some games are more at risk than others and the first match after deadline should always be on.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Having said that, I sold Bernardo for Son yesterday 😉

      2. Scholes Out For Summer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        this. Like it was perfectly predictable that the Villa - Leeds game and the Everton - Newcastle game were going to be called off before the deadline.

        i feel like not a lot of postponements will happen after the deadline that we dont see coming

  15. Fuddled FC
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Is Gray not worth considering?

    Everton have excellent run of fixtures and dgw's

    1. RedRo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 17 days ago

      yes he is

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Waiting for DCL personally. Got cash to do Dennis -> DCL when Dennis is gone.

  16. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    The Guardian on Raphinha: "The Brazilian could cost around £60m". With the prices these days, that's a bargain.

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Sane and Raphinha on the flanks of Bayern would be fun

    2. AC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Just can’t happen in January, can only see a nice new contract for him and off in the summer

  17. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Considering disregarding DGWs for defenders and instead thinking more long term than bringing in an army of blank machines. James > Coady?

    1. WHUFCSmith23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Agreed. I like it.

  18. pablo discobar
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    After a lot of tinkering it could be i do nothing if no dgws announced and roll a transfer

    GK DDG
    DEF Cancelo, TAA, Reguillion
    MID Salah, Son, Jota, Bowen
    FWD Cr7, Gerhaldt, Dennis

    Subs Martinelli, Livramento, James

    1. BullDogTevez
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Rather start Martinelli than Dennis.

  19. waltzingmatildas
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Only 1ft, considering these moves.
    Which ones are worth the - 4?
    A) James to cash
    B) alonso to davies
    C) ESR to bowen
    D) gundo to maddison
    E) Dennis to watkins/antonio (needs a downgrade elsewhere)

    1. JBG
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      A, if Villa still have a match.

    2. AC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      C would my thoughts

    3. sirmorbach
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      D, A for me — or C, A, depending on Leicester news.

    4. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Thanks all.
      I think I might take a - 8
      James, ESR, gundo to
      Cash, bowen, maddison

    5. Scholes Out For Summer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      fwiw, I think Gundo will start this week

  20. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Lloris
    TAA, Dias, Cancelo, James, Cash
    Salah, Jota, Foden, Bowen, Martinelli
    Watkins, Antonio, Broja

    A. James to Lowton/Coady — or even Amartey to sit as fodder later
    B. Salah to Maddison
    C. Both for a hit

    1. AC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      D roll the ft you have a very nice team

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        This

        1. Saint Marvin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          ship James (inj) before value drops

      2. sirmorbach
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Thank you very much indeed, sir

  21. Debauchy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    High risk but equally high reward WC GW 21 to get best of all Doublers ?
    Expecting some DGWs at least as per Crellin but would be nice to have confirmed pre deadline. When last if ever have you had consecutive DGWs ?

    Im in no big money leagues this season so really tempted to risk it. And if I had a very low rank then it's a no brainer, always tough to catch up later in the season ( Im currenly 35K. but is still enticing)
    Lots of Pros but certainly equal cons . if you're chasing big what have you got to lose

    1. Blueberg
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Risky with the postponements, but could pay off if it pans out as Ben Crellin expects. Can aim for 15 dgw players in 22 and bench boost.

      1. Debauchy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Yep high risk but get lucky and and even bigger reward

  22. Freshy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    So Vardy out for a month
    his replacement is..................

    1. Mr Arsenal
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      BArnes

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Nacho nacho maan

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Ahh he's off to Afcon, my bad.

    3. JBG
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Barnes maybe? Daka injured and Nachos gone to AFCON.

    4. Scholes Out For Summer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Frontline will be Barnes LW, Maddison 10, Lookman RW, Nacho ST for this GW

      When Nacho leaves for AFCON, itll likely be Barnes Lookman up top, Maddison behind, and 3 CMs behind Maddison, until Daka is fit again and he'll take the striker spot until Vardy is back

    5. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Hmm not good

    6. Aadii

      Tielemans.

      1. Camino Aleatorio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        As a Center Forward?

  23. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Who to bench:
    A. Dias (have Cancelo)
    B. Broja
    C. Cash

    1. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Not A. B or C - C

  24. Pedersen
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Who to shift James to?
    Already have TAA, Cancelo, Dalot, Livra

    1. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I'm tossing up between Reguilon, Coady and Lamptey

  25. thegaffer82
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Is Lamptey definitely first choice starter for Potter? (I know he’ll be rotated cos he’s an extremely fragile chap)

    Need a cheap replacement for James to fund Bilva > Son

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Yep, until he gets injured inevitably

      1. thegaffer82
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Cheers, just noticed there’s a new article up…

    2. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Assuming he dont get injured on the way to the ground

  26. Eat my goal!

    Alonso to Laporte or reggy?

    1. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Is Reggy the same as Reguilon?

      I own Reggy and he is Thierney 2.0, looks the part, given the opportunity, does nothing, and not a decent finished product.

      If I could pick again, Ben Davis is much better as Spur defender.

  27. Giovanni Giorgio
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    a) James ---> Cash
    b) Martinelli --> Maddison
    c) both -4
