      Final decision
      Start

      1) Kulu
      2) Gordon

        2 months, 22 hours ago

        1 but I'd really try start both

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Kulu

      3. Gandalf

        1

    • Riggs
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 hours ago

      Mount, Pukki, Dennis -> Gordon, Nketiah, Richarlison -8 pts hit ? Is it worth it?

      1. Emp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Nah

      2. Doug McCasual
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        no

      3. Union_Jacks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Wtf

      4. Hairy Potter
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Not for me

      5. outernational
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        No way.

      6. Gandalf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Def not

    • Fnug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 22 hours ago

      Best defender for 5.8 max? Can’t be Liverpool or Chelsea. Is Zinchenko worth a punt, or is Walker back? Coleman? Holgate?

      1. toystory2wasok
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        alonso

    • I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 22 hours ago

      Start Mateta or Weghorst?

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Sounds like Mateta benched, so Weghorst

    • BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 hours ago

      Jota or L Diaz

      1. BobbyDoesNotLook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Leaning Jota for some predictions of two starts.

      2. Royal5
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Salah is enough

    • Whats the Mata?
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 hours ago

      A. Barnes to Kdb (-4) (Kdb to Son in gw38)
      Or
      B. Barnes to Son (-4) (gives me another ft to use in gw38)
      Or
      C. Keep Barnes and move him to Son in gw38

    • DycheDycheBaby
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 22 hours ago

      Is Dubravka to Foster worth it for a -4?

      1. Hairy Potter
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Only if you think Foster gets a clean sheet in one of his games this GW.

        1. DycheDycheBaby
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          I don't think so but I'm asking what others think..

      2. HashAttack
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Took a -4 for Dubravka to Schmeichel - Have Foster - Wouldn't want to be taking a hit to bring him in but wouldn't want to play Dubravka vs MCI .... Sounds like Foster is 100% certain to play either

        1. HashAttack
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          Isn't 100%

          1. DycheDycheBaby
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            Yeah agree. Hoping Dubravka can make a lot of saves!

    • citizenkane
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 22 hours ago

      Play Nketiah or Raphinha?

      1. Royal5
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Nik

      2. Tomerick
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Definitely Nekitiah

      3. Doug McCasual
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        raph

        1. Doug McCasual
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          they're probably right..i dont see nek getting much

      4. Emp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Flip that's tough both but if not then raph just

    • Corgz Dark side of the Loon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 22 hours ago

      Do we know anything on rumoured Guaita injury news ??

      1. FPL ElasticO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        He is not in the squad as per FPL focal

      2. Bonus magnet
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Yes we don’t know

      3. SonnyPikey
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          Not a rumour it's true

          1. Bonus magnet
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            And you know this how

      4. FPL ElasticO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        G2g for DGW 36?

        Ramsdale
        TAA / Robbo / Cancelo/ James
        Salah / KDB / Kulusevski / Coutinho
        Richarlison / Nketiah

        Bench:: Dubravka / Cash / KDH / 4.5

      5. Lucas8406
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        Robertson to Van Dijk for safety?

        1. Royal5
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          What?

          1. Royal5
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            Rotation rumors?

            1. TyroneGAA
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 22 hours ago

              Might be rested

        2. FPL_Crisis
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          for free and if you can use the funds sure but not for a hit

        3. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          Not if for a hit

          1. Lucas8406
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            For free but contemplating possibility of Robertsons attacking returns

        4. Hairy Potter
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          Not for me.

      6. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 22 hours ago

        I think I might do Havertz/Kane/Mateta > KDB/Richarlison/Dennis...

        -8 thanks to bloody Ramsey injury too, but can see it paying off with Mateta/Havertz non-appearances. Then KDB > Son next week.

        1. HollywoodXI
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          Ramsey injury?

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            Yeah. Already shipped.

          2. SonnyPikey
              2 months, 22 hours ago

              Ramsey dead yeah

        2. Eric Banternaaa
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          Schmeichel Foster
          Alonso Laporte Cancelo Trent Robbo
          Salah Foden Mount Havertz KDH
          Watkins Pukki Dennis

          0 ITB. 2FT. 15 DGW Players. No idea where to use the free transfers.

          Any ideas?

          Chip Strategy
          BB 36
          FH 37

        3. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          Went Pickford James Richarlison over Mendy Alonso Pukki, did I make the right decision? 😛

          1. Doug McCasual
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            everythings gonna be fine

        4. G Banger
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          Arghh cant decide who scores more:

          a) Mahrez
          b) Jesus

          Help!

          1. Sun Jihai
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            I don’t think there is a right answer tbh!

          2. rjcv177
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            A

          3. outernational
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            Very hard to predict. You might as well just flip a coin!

          4. HaveYassineChikhaoui
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            I've gone with A, simply because if you take away the one game Jesus had 5 returns, and suddenly he looks average.

        5. HashAttack
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          Play Robbo or Tsimikas

          1. Bonus magnet
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            90 each

          2. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            Play both 😆

          3. FPL_Crisis
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            even if it's one game each surely you go with Robbo

            1. HashAttack
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 22 hours ago

              Spurs predicted to score (vs Robbo), CS predicted against Villa (vs Tsimikas)

              1. FPL_Crisis
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                2 months, 22 hours ago

                sounds like you're wanting others to say Tsimikas then?

                1. HashAttack
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 22 hours ago

                  A few others wondering the same would be reassuring 🙂 - But I think I am too worried about Tsimi getting cameos

          4. Hairy Potter
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

            Robbo, as he might not be rested

          5. toystory2wasok
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 22 hours ago

        6. rjcv177
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

          36 + 38
          Matip or nketiah?

        7. toystory2wasok
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 hours ago

            Near impossible to say, might just have to check predicted lineups and take you best guess

          Any last minute rumours to be wary of, or is (K)DB still sensible rather than Salah?

            Pep said he was pulled in UCL due to tactics rather than injury, so that's good enough for me. Still not sure which I'll C between the two but am leaning toward KDB

                (Owning Salah might be a slight differential, based on some twitter FPL accounts as of late).
