    Any real news besides twitter noise on whether Laporte has an injury?
    Own Laporte + Dias and looking at bringing in Cancelo for the spicy triple up in defence, which is less than 1% owned as a combo

    Please rate these moves?
    White/Sterling/Cout/Cucho to Cancelo/Son/Odergaard/Nketiah on BB this week + FH37

      Have not seen news on Laporte but yes seemed to have cramp after gruelling game but played last few minutes up top as centre forward which don’t think would have been asked to do if carrying an injury but hopefully get Pep update later. Looking at these moves Allan improvement to me

      1. FPL_Crisis

        Was this a typo?

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Any of these sound good (FH37)?
    A) Havertz to Foden
    B) Elanga to Gordon (bench Robbo)
    C) JRod + Robbo to Jesus + Tsimikas (-4, bench Tsim)
    D) Havertz + JRod to Mahrez + 4.5m fodder fwd (-4)
    E) Havertz + JRod to Harrison + Richarlison (-4, bench Robbo)
    F) Anything else?

    Foster
    TAA Robbo Cancelo Laporte Alonso
    Salah Mount Havertz Saka
    Kane
    Dubravka Elanga JRod Dobbin

    1. premierleaguesgreatestevert…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      As painful as it might be, I wouldn't bench any of that back 5

    2. Cheeto__Bandito
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      probably B

    3. Fish up a tree
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 14 days ago

      D

      I’m going Havertz to Mahrez as I believe City will go full strength now & Mahrez is in that best 11 for me & tends to return every time he starts games

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Yeah, that's tempting, particularly if Jay is out anyway with a hamstring issue!

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      I did A last week. Probably that.

      Do you have Dubra > Pickford open as an option? That could be worth good points.

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Thanks, that was the original plan, even if Foden is rested for the first game, the Wolves game is nice. Wouldn't have budget for Pickford with that move unfortunately so will play useless Foster! I do like the Dubravka fixture in 38 anyway as I am FH37.

    5. ZimZalabim
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      D

  3. Cheeto__Bandito
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Son has been very much a flat track bully under conte, apart from city who he always hauls against.

    If on free hit or chasing it is worth upgrading to kdb imo as tottenham have struggled v good opposition.

    1. Klaren
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      How many games against top teams did he play under Conte anyway, especially once you exclude Man City as well? You are talking about an extremely small sample size here.

      1. Cheeto__Bandito
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        blanked against BHAx2, MUN away, Brentford away the tough games while hauling against newcastle, villa and leicester west ham after they had europe midweek.

        1. Klaren
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Those are considered tough games and those against Liverpool and Man City weren’t?

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Son has a decent record against bigger teams including both he plays this GW

      MCI (H) 10
      CHE (H) 2
      ARS (A) 7
      MUN (H) 2
      LIV (H) 7
      MCI (A) 10
      MUN (A) 2
      Average = 6

      1. Cheeto__Bandito
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        dont know where you got that but he has 3 goals and 0 assists in 11 prem games against liverpool.

        1. Cheeto__Bandito
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          oh you mean this season only.

          1. Sun Jihai
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Yeah, just looking at this season
            Realised I accidentally called Man Utd a 'big team' too - would move the average up ex them! 😉

    3. No Need
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Personally like a player in form and he clearly is

  4. camarozz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    FH activated.58pts ahead in ML he has FH also.

    Thoughts?

    Pickford

    Alonso/Cancelo/Laporte/TAA

    Salah(c)/Son/Foden/Saka/Gordon

    Richarlson

    1. premierleaguesgreatestevert…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Any money left?

      1. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        O.8 itb.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      A bit boring imo but solid.

      Would look to gamble on Diaz or Mahrez personally.

      1. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Boring might just win me my ML? Trying to consolidate lead. And team good for 37 with 3 x spurs and 2 x villa and plan go being Richarlson in.

    3. Third Eye Vision
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      I think I’d get Jesus if I was on FH. Maybe save some money on Alonso to fund it.

  5. madmafc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 14 days ago

    If Robertson is rested for one of the games, will it be Tsimikas who likely starts?

    I'm considering

    Robertson and Coutinho to Tsimikas and Son for a hit (already have Kane)

    FH in 37

    1. premierleaguesgreatestevert…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Yeah it will

    2. FPL_Crisis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      then it means you own Tsimikas in 38 instead of Robbo

      1. madmafc
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Yeah, that's a risk. Can bench Tsimikas though, and would mean I'd have Kane and Son for the final day against Norwich which is what I'd want ideally

        1. madmafc
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Scratch that. I can do Mount and Coutinho to Son and Gordon for exact money

          I think that's better

          Mount will do well then, but he never does well when he's in my team

  6. Disco Stu
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Need one last midfielder and one last Defender
    A Foden
    B. Havertz
    C. Barnes/Maddison

    1. Dias
    2. Laporte
    3. Alonso

    I can afford any defender except TAA and VVD

    1. premierleaguesgreatestevert…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      A 3 probably

    2. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      A3, but a Mahrez over Foden could be more explosive

  7. Lallana
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Nice to see Saka play so well this year after the Euros. Fairplay to the young lad.

    1. Third Eye Vision
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Yeah. He’s had a cracking season.

  8. No Need
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    -12 taken for the BB. 14 doublers and Zaha and though a bench headache next week at least any rotation is covered off and its the end of any more hits, plus several 37 doublers…

    Pickford Ramsdale
    Rudi Cancelo TAA Davies Matip
    Son Saka Zaha Cout Gordon
    Kane Nketiah Rich

    1. Third Eye Vision
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      I’m tinkering with something similar. Actually contemplating a -16. Think my BB should cover some/most of that and my team is massively improved for the end of the season.

      Trying to decide on Diaz, Jota or Mahrez for the last mid spot.

      1. No Need
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Good options im very light in midfield but have had bad tv all season. Think Jota would be a great diff and should get a lot of PL minutes

        1. Third Eye Vision
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Thanks. I’m leaning towards Mahrez. Although the extra 0.3 would be really handy.

  9. Boberella
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    People FHing in 37, which SGWers will you be keeping?
    Son and Salah for a start, who more?

    1. ZimZalabim
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      trent cancelo salah son

      1. Boberella
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Think I’m on that too, pretty much.
        Cancelo needs to do something though. Losing patience with the lack of attacking returns for that money.

  10. George James
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Best option

    A) Sanchez / White / Havertz

    B) Sanchez / Laporte / Gordon -8

    C) Schmichael / Tavares / Havertz -8

    D) Ederson / White / Gordon -8

    E) Schmichael / Matip / Maddison -12

    1. Dan D
        3 months, 14 days ago

        who score more Nketiah ( LEE ( H ) Tot (A) ) or Gordon ( Lei ( A) Wat (A) )

    2. RWB_1991
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      White, Bissouma & Weghorst to Dias, Gordon & Nketiah for -8?

      1. Boberella
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        That’s probably worth it. Can’t see many points from the former

    3. ScottyMaz12
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Best option here folks for a free hit team?

      a) Schmeichel, Cancelo, Laporte
      b) Ederson, Dias, Alonso

      1. ryacoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        A

      2. Alcapaul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 14 days ago

        B

        1. Connor's Calling
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          A has a teeeny more upside imo

    4. liboo
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Captain

      A. Salah
      B. Kdb

      What u think guys ?

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        A

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Or also A if leading, B if chasing

      2. Avery
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        B

      3. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Agree with Sun Jihai

      4. Boberella
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I’m not really playing catch-up, but will probably go B. Definitely has the better fixtures and city all out for title now.

    5. tc93
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      BB 36 (and FH 37). 2FT, 0.0 ITB. Quick 1, 2 or 3 lads:

      1) Greenwood + Barnes + Broja + Schar --> Nketiah + Gordon + Pukki + Holgate/Fofana (for -8)

      2) Kane + Broja + Barnes + Mount + Schar --> Richarlison + Nketiah + KDB + Gordon + Laporte (for -12)

      3) Mount + Barnes + Broja + Schar --> Foden + Gordon + Nketiah + Cash (for -8)

      Rest of team:
      Ramsdale / Foster
      TAA / Robbo / Cancelo / James / Schar
      Salah / Mount / Barnes / Kulisevski / Saka
      Kane / Greenwood / Broja

    6. tangtastic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      For GW36, Would you rather:

      a) City Defender (Dias or Laporte, have Cancelo)
      b) Alonso vs Wolves (H)

      Alonso may only play 1 fixture during this dgw, but I've got a feeling Chelsea are going to rip Wolves. But City defence seems safer. Thoughts?

      1. Avery
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I think A

      2. No Need
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Dias

      3. Boberella
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        A safe. B higher upside

    7. Gunnerssss
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Is leicester player essential this week?
      Havertz to maddison or havertz to gordon?

      1. Avery
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Personally would keep Havertz

      2. Third Eye Vision
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Do you think they might be a bit flat after losing the semi?

        Maddison did have loads of space when they played Everton recently. Could have been in the points.

        Only one I’m considering is Schmeichel.

    8. Ruinenlust
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Any news on the White man?

    9. Avery
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Hi - right bench order?

      Ramsdale
      James | Alonso | Laporte | Dias
      Salah | KDB | Maddison | Mount | Kulu
      Richarlison

      De Gea | Watkins | Fofana | Broja

      1. Dan D
          3 months, 14 days ago

          yes

      2. FFFoxy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Is Richarlison clear from the FA?

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Thought fine and reprimand reported as punishment

        2. Third Eye Vision
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          I’ve been looking out all week (as a nervy Blue). There was a tweet from Alistair Macgowan (this morning) suggesting the FA will only rule on it once the police have investigated it. So that’s not likely to be for weeks yet.

          Everton fans don’t seem to be paying much attention to it - the general consensus is he threw it into an area with no fans. I think it looked worse on tv and then it was exacerbated by rabid Daily Mail readers/kopites and everyone else who loves to hate our favourite Brasilian.

          1. Third Eye Vision
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Decent article on Richi this week on the BBC.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Thanks, yeah doesn’t seem to be any word directly from FA yet. Wanted to get him before price rise rules me out

      3. reverendgee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Have Kulu
        Do I move Mount/Kane to
        A) KDB/Richarlison
        B) Son/Richarlison

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          I like B

        2. Boberella
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          B for the spurs cover

      4. Catastrophe
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Nketiah on 100.9% and Schmeichel on 100.5% - what are the chances both rise tonight, given there'll have been a fair amount of FHs?

        Cheers

      5. tc93
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Best defender 5.9 or less for this gw

        1. Louis99
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Alonso

        2. Alcapaul
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Alonso or Matip probably. Could maybe punt on Zinchenko if Walker is out

        3. Dan D
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Matip

        4. Louis99
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          What do we think of this FH?

          In three ML, one of them I'm leading by 50, in the other two I'm trailing by 40.

          Mendy
          TAA - Cancelo - Laporte - Alonso
          Mane - Diaz - Mahrez - Son - Saka
          Richarlison

          Any feedback appreciated!

          1. Boberella
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Looks great! 3 punts with high upside there with Mane Diaz and Mahrez. (Mendy a good differential too)
            If Salah and KDB keep quiet, you could easy make up some good points there.

          2. Third Eye Vision
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            I’d get Jota instead of Mane to fund Jesus.

            You’d need to downgrade Laporte too. Not sure how much money you’d have left, but you’d benching them anyway.

          Is anyone else just playing for fun now?

          My worst ever season (this is my 13th season playing). No chance of a decent finish and for the first time ever I’m not a contender in my mini-leagues.

            What sort of stuff are you doing for the last few weeks out of interest, given you’re not playing for much?
            Massive hits? Big differentials?

              Yeah. Massive hit this week. Hoping BB will cover it. That’s what my tinkering has been this evening.

            who will score more Nketiah ( LEE ( H ) Tot (A) ) or Gordon ( Lei ( A) Wat (A) )

              Nketiah has looked decent. I’d fancy a return against Leeds.

              I think Nketiah, purely based on everyone’s away form. Although who knows really. A lot to play for for both. Gordon essential for GW37 two home games though.

            Please help me guys.

            I am using Bb this week with 2ft and 0.5 in bank and using Free hit next week

            I am chasing one mini league by 10 points while leading another mini league by 10 points. So in both league, everyone has used bench Boost already and have one free hit left.

            Everyone in my both league have Alonso, James and Cancelo and I have Kilman white and Robbo. White and Kilman are injured who I need to replace but I don’t have enough fund to just replace them except holding/holgate/Fofana.

            If I transfer out Robbo then I can get alonso, laporte and 5.0 defender but Robbo is a differential for me but he might just play one game so does Alonso james and Laporte.

            Also I have maddison who none have but he might also play one game.

            Please help me on what to do?

              It’s slim pickings on the cheap defenders. Unsure on Fofana’s minutes. Holgate will presumably play every game unless he gets injured. Everton are a different proposition defensively with Mina in the team.

              I’d be really tempted to keep Robbo for the remaining games. Even if he gets a rest, he should still deliver good points as a differential.

              I obviously don’t know your team, but your defence sounds pretty terrible, so I’d consider downgrading a mid or fwd to fund two better defenders and take a -4.

              Consider Sessegnon? 4.3m, Reguilon likely out for rest of season, DGW this week and then BUR, NOR to finish the season

              If you’ve got BB this week and no one else has, then focus on good DGW players and not necessarily match theirs. Chelsea defs are a risk for both games for example. As is Robbo, so moving Robbo to a nailed DGW could work.
              I’d prob keep Maddy too and try for a differential like Jesus instead

              Even though only 3 weeks left, 10 points really is not much, so my advice would be to pick the players you want on merit rather than worry about your rivals. If 20 point different in the last week then yes that would be different, but not yet

            Pick Maddison over Foden now, with Leicester out of the European competition?

            Sounds like White could be back for the second ARS DWG game.
            Holding a bit less desirable.

            Pick 1 ya like more please (4.2 max)
            A - Holding
            B - Holgate
