    FH37, how sensible is this team with 6DGWs? Low TV, must compromise:

    Pickford* (Foster)
    Cancelo TAA Cash* (Holgate Amartey)
    KDB Son Zaha* Buendia* Diaz
    Richarlison* Watkins* (Richardson)

    1. Stimps
      • 8 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Nice... Do you think Buendia plays both? Who's your captain?

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        15 days, 4 hours ago

        Will have a look at Buendia further, could go LEI mid otherwise. Capt not sure perhaps Son or if really want the double Rich/Watkins.

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Looks nice. I made a similar draft earlier with Robbo instead of TAA, Salah over Buendia and Mina over Cancelo. Unsure of City def against West Ham, they normally give City a good game so I think they'll score

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        15 days, 4 hours ago

        Cancelo is a City mid isn't he? 😛

        1. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 4 hours ago

          I suppose the way he plays he is!

  2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 8 Years
    15 days, 4 hours ago

    What do you consider a good BB?

    1. Hits from the Bong
      • 3 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Double figures

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      20 pts probably, at least

      1. teneighty
        • 7 Years
        15 days, 4 hours ago

        Agree with his.

    3. Alan The Llama
      • 12 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Depends if it's a low scoring gw or a high scoring one. 15-30 points.

    4. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      16 pts. Not having great expectations from this chip.

    5. Oscar Slater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      When I BB I always put my four best players on the bench to try and give it a better chance of working out well.

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 8 Years
        15 days, 4 hours ago

        Haha great hack

    6. DA Minnion (Former great)
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      I'm on 26 at the minute.

  3. NateDog
    • 1 Year
    15 days, 4 hours ago

    Anyone else on FH next week a bit lost? I'm only sure on 5 players (Pickford, Son, KDB, Zaha, Richarlison). The rest I'm mixed on. Want to punt on Ings if he doesn't play v Liverpool, if not maybe Watkins but not too confident. Not sure of whether to go Salah + Diaz or Salah + Robbo, or to even punt on Jota or Mane instead of Salah. Can fit in Maddison if I don't double up on Liverpool mids but unsure if I should even bother. Will probably get Cash but don't trust Villa defence, wanted Mina but injured today.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      See above my team

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

      I’m the same mate, think the Line up for Liverpool in the cup final will help us to decide who are the best options for the Saints game to go for, like Diaz or Jota, Salah or Mané for example, I’m currently on Mané and Jota, but that can be Salah and Maddison too(same money)

    3. Hits from the Bong
      • 3 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Currently thinking the below team, but I had Digne and Gordon in there yesterday

      Pickford
      TAA Cash Coady
      Salah KDB Son Zaha
      Ings Richarlison Watkins

      1. BoroPhil
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        15 days, 4 hours ago

        This is my team currently except I have Maddison instead of KDB and Mykolenko instead of Coady. The Maddison slot is the one I'm most unsure about.

        1. Hits from the Bong
          • 3 Years
          15 days, 4 hours ago

          Mykolenko is probably a better option, I had Gordon as 3rd Everton slot originally so may change that

  4. OptimusBlack
    • 9 Years
    15 days, 4 hours ago

    Foster ( Dubravka)
    Cancelo Robbo Alonso ( White Schär )
    Saka Salah Son Diaz Maddison*
    Toney Richa* (Cucho)

    A- just Sell Alonso / White Saka & Toney

    B- Use FH

  5. 1justlookin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    15 days, 4 hours ago

    Thoughts on Ramsdale to Martinez for -4?

    Could get some decent save points against MCI, last game of the season as well

    1. Kermit Special
      • 5 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Not worth the hit. Schmeichel or Pickford if u must

  6. Willesden Mariner
    • 4 Years
    15 days, 4 hours ago

    Any improvements on this FH37 team?

    Pickford
    Digne, Cash, TAA
    Salah, Son, Zaha, Gordon
    Kane, Richarlison, Watkins
    3.9, Brownhill, Mitchell, Tsimikas

    1. pablo discobar
      • 12 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      My worry with Zaha is that I never like palace away and although he'll probably start viera said this

      Will some of the young players be playing soon?

      I always think the last few games we have to build for next season. There are some young players who have been with us who will get involved. I will always have a mind to put a strong team out to win football matches and yes, I will give some opportunities to young players but they'll need to be surrounded by key players.

      1. Hits from the Bong
        • 3 Years
        15 days, 4 hours ago

        Zaha has scored 5 goals in his last 5 away games

        1. pablo discobar
          • 12 Years
          15 days, 4 hours ago

          Due a few blanks then

          1. Hits from the Bong
            • 3 Years
            15 days, 4 hours ago

            Ha, now you're moving the goalposts. He is still on penalties

            1. pablo discobar
              • 12 Years
              15 days, 4 hours ago

              Tbf he blanked v Newcastle away 😀

    2. Finding Timo
      • 1 Year
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Same team as mine , my only thought is ings over Kane

  7. Big Ronnie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    15 days, 4 hours ago

    Was planning on FH 37 but having second thoughts. FH 37 or 38? Current team below.

    Schmeichel*
    TAA, Cancelo, Laporte, Cash*
    Salah, KDB, Saka, Kulu, KDH*
    Watkins*

    Foster, Alonso, Nketiah, Pukki

    1. OptimusBlack
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      I have same thinking just 2 DGW Players and want just other 3 and that's enough Nd use FH 38

      1. OptimusBlack
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 4 hours ago

        Foster ( Dubravka)
        Cancelo Robbo Alonso (White Schär )
        Saka Salah Son Diaz Maddison*
        Toney Richa* (Cucho)

        1. Big Ronnie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          15 days, 4 hours ago

          Yeah Son would be the key one this week for me and you already have him

    2. OptimusBlack
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      You may sell Kulu & Saka but all other too good to Sell

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Looking increasingly better to FH38 vs. FH37
      You could just do Saka to Zaha maybe

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        15 days, 4 hours ago

        Yeah the main players I would want are Son, Richarlison and Zaha.

  8. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    15 days, 4 hours ago

    On the back of yesterday’s performance, do we think Buendia will get plenty of minutes next week?

    1. Kermit Special
      • 5 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      I expect Buendia to start, but Coutinho to be subbed early for sentimental Gerrard

    2. Finding Timo
      • 1 Year
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Yes should do

  9. Werner Bros
    • 6 Years
    15 days, 4 hours ago

    Playing around with FH team for GW37 and have 5.7m left over after a first draft. Any suggestions of where to spend it, what changes to make?

    Pickford
    Cash Clyne Alonso
    Salah Son Zaha Maddison Gordon
    Richarlison Watkins

    Foster Mateta Jansson Veltman

    1. Hits from the Bong
      • 3 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Maddison to KDB. Alonso to TAA/LaporteDigne/Coady

  10. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    15 days, 4 hours ago

    Absolutely devastated after the recent weeks, going back to the theory that FOL is really luck based.
    Hade Sterling last two GWs and (c) him only to sell him for KDB before this DGW…you can be tinkering 24/7 but won’t overcome that. Just waiting for the new season and some more luck!

    1. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      At the same time, would you FH37 or 38?

      Ederson
      TAA/Robo/Cancelo/Alonso
      Salah/KDB/Mount/Saka/Kulu
      Pukki

      1. Qubit
        • 12 Years
        15 days, 4 hours ago

        Captaining Sterling any of last 2 weeks isn't really bad luck, just a risk unfortunately (which may or may not pay off)

        As for FH, again, FH in 38 is a risk and there's doubles in 37, so logically 37. Hope your luck improves for the last 2 weeks.

        1. Atimis
          • 5 Years
          15 days, 4 hours ago

          Cheers mate, good luck!

    2. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      two gws isn't really a lot
      i think at times we make too many moves and are our own worst enemies
      but at the business end of the season this becomes both amplified and more understandable

      1. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        15 days, 3 hours ago

        Yeah true, used to give 3 GWs at least

    3. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      I even brought in Mahrez for him. This season has been brutal.

  11. jimmyharte
    • 4 Years
    15 days, 4 hours ago

    I'm still absolutely spewing I picked Dias over Laporte. Only the pure fluff being chat on here regarding Laporte made me go Dias. Absolutely fkd it.

    1. Stimps
      • 8 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Same......

      1. jimmyharte
        • 4 Years
        15 days, 4 hours ago

        Honestly mate it's pissed me off mega. Would be an extra 18 points maybe more...

        1. Stimps
          • 8 Years
          15 days, 4 hours ago

          I just wanted something different seeing as Laporte was the more popular one. Backfired....

    2. RedRo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Most of the commentsI saw on here were recommending Dias over Laporte (which I didn’t agree with). Ultimately we’re all responsible for our own team though. Can’t expect anyone to have known Dias was going to get injured

    3. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      15 days, 4 hours ago

      Take it easy. I did Sterling to Mahrez for -4.

  12. wulfrunian
    • 5 Years
    15 days, 4 hours ago

    What would you do here?

    Sa
    James/Cancelo/Laporte/Taa/Robbo
    Foden/Jota/Coutinho/Saka
    Kane

    Dubravka/Broja/Fraser/Dobbin/
    1ft 1.4itb

    a)save and Jota+Coutinho->Son+5.7 mid in gw38
    b)Kane+Broja->Ings+Richarlison(-4) and Coutinho->Son in gw38

    1. Kermit Special

    1. Firminoooo

    Pickford
    Cash Digne Mykolenko
    Salah Diaz Son Zaha
