        A. Mount/Jesus
        B. Neto/Haaland

        Have Martinelli, no other Chelsea/City attackers. Which would you choose please?

          A. Sanchez, Walker,James, 4.5 mid

          2. Manani
            • 10 Years

            A. Neco + Saka (bench Neco, 442)
            B. James + Matinelli (bench Neto/Bailey, 532)

            B seems like no brainer right?

            1. Obamawang
              • 3 Years
              12 days, 2 hours ago

              Yeah, I'd go B.

            I think I'm locked in. Thoughts:

            Ward
            TAA Robbo Cancelo Dalot
            Salah (C) Mount Rashford Neto
            Haaland Jesus

            Iversen Neco W Andreas Greenwood

            Is is best to keep 0.5ITB for any transfers, or upgrade Neto to Martinelli?

            1. Shteve
              • 13 Years
              12 days, 2 hours ago

              Not sure about the double United personally. I'd prefer Martinelli over Neto

            2. Clive
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 13 Years
              12 days, 2 hours ago

              I always like to keep 0.5 for price changes

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 13 Years

              No, Kane is a beast this year

            A) aaronson 5.0def (Walker/trippier/cash)
            B) martinelli ait-nouri

            If ever there was a year to go all out, this is the year. Extra wildcard and 4 mil playing gk and def along with 4.5 mil playing mid.

            Threemium locked in!!!

            Sorry for repeat. Mad to go no arsenal first gw or two? Got a few high value differentials I can move around if need be, I just don’t see palace being pushovers (leicester does worry me a little though…)

            1. I am 42
              • 9 Years
              12 days, 2 hours ago

              started with 3, then 2, now left with Jesus only

              1. selig
                • 5 Years
                12 days, 2 hours ago

                Yeah, me too. Got Gabriel, I meant no attackers actually. I rate them longer term but I’ve been trying to pull a smash n grab with some weird early picks and the first gw at least feels like it’ll disappoint. Could even see Jesus dropping a bit lol.

            How's this look for a final draft
            Ramsdale
            Cancelo Trippier Dalot TAA
            Salah Luis Diaz Rashford grealish

              • 5 Years

              I’d have him if not for Vardy, def overlooked imo

              In my team

          10. Super John McGinn-
            • 10 Years
            12 days, 2 hours ago

            Current draft is this but worried about Perisic so got some decisions to make

            Ramsdale
            TAA, Robbo, Cancelo, James, Perisic
            Salah, Martinelli, Bailey
            Haaland, Jesus

            Ward, Neto, A.Periera, Archer

            A) Ramsdale, Perisic, Neto
            B) Iverson, N.Williams, Kulu
            C) Ramsdale, Cash/Trips, Neto + 0.5

            1. Rhodes your boat
              • 6 Years
              12 days, 2 hours ago

              A

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              If you're worried about his minutes, then just play Neto.

              Leave as is imo.

            Thoughts on this, I've been away since Sunday so haven't been keeping tabs on players etc so let me know if there's any injuries etc

            Ward (Meslier)
            Trent Cancelo Trippier Zinchenko Cash
            Salah Grealish Diaz (Neto Andreas)
            Kane Jesus (Plange)

          12. I am 42

            3600s to deadline
