    Anyone considering Robbo or Trent? And if so which one do you prefer?

    1. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Prefer TAA as I think Robbo will be benched for 1 game over the Xmas period

    2. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Thought about Robbo momentarily, but sharing minutes with Tsimikas makes him a no no.

  2. Stranger Mings

    I am considering going without white and gambling on fofana if fit ! Is that mad

    1. Tartan Brazilians
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Why gamble on Fofana who is coming back from injury in a Chelsea team who have leaked goals. White much better or Patterson to save money.

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Ok cheers

  3. KeanosMagic
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    I think I'm set. Not massively happy with a dud 3rd FWD, but happy with the rest.

    Ederson Ward
    James Trippier Gabriel Shaw White
    KDB Salah Almiron Odegard Andreas
    Haaland Nunez Greenwood

    1. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I prefer Martinelli to Odegaard (not sure of the price difference)

      1. KeanosMagic
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Yeah, he's 0.1 out of reach unfortunately

    2. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      looks good. You happy with no Cancelo? Could he improve his attacking returns?

    3. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Why are people getting James into their teams? I heard he's not in full training yet and unlikely to return until January

  4. PScholes18
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Which combo is better:

    A: Cancelo, Martinelli, Adams
    B: Bueno/Perraud, Andreas, Kane

    B would leave me without City defence and Arsenal attackers.

    Kepa - Ward
    Robertson - Saliba - Tripper - Dalot - ??
    Salah - Rashford - Summerville - Almiron - ??
    Darwin - Haaland - ??

    1. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      B
      A leaves too much of a benching headache

      1. PScholes18
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Thanks. Commented exactly at the same time.

    2. PScholes18
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      A could be more of a benching headache while B would be easier i guess.

    3. PScholes18
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      One more 🙂

      A: Cancelo - Adams
      B: Fofana ( or other def below 4,7) - Darwin

  5. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Considering going 3-5-2. Besides Haaland and Kane the points are in midfield so far this season. What formation are you going with?

    1. Hog Roast Junkie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      343 with Andreas as 5th mid

    2. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Toney has more points than Salah.

    3. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Two of Toney/Mitro/Wilson will likely get more points than Kane + fodder

    4. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I’m torn between
      3-5-2 Rashford & Greenwood
      3-4-3 Andreas & Adams

  6. thepancakeman123
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Couple decisions I'm torn on... Any feedback would be appreciated

    A) Rashford + Mount
    B) Rashford + Martinelli
    C) Mount + Martinelli

    1) Mitrovic
    2) Martial

    1. Hog Roast Junkie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      B1

    2. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      B2-Martial could be great value imo

    3. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      C1, if you want to grab a bit of the DGW action.
      But I agree, Rash and Martial are both great picks

  7. Hog Roast Junkie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Pick two from three:
    A) Rashford
    B) Almiron
    C) Martineli

    1. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      AC

    2. Tartan Brazilians
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Tough one. Almiron and Rashford but if you lose lots of money on Martinelli then maybe keep him with Almiron.

    3. Warblers
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I would worry about Almiron purple patch drying up and my experience is with Rashford is the same was Zaha (i.e., always seems to do well for other people).

      1. GREEN IS GOOD
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Almiron is getting better, Newcastle are on a roll. I'd say he's essential.

    4. Bavarian
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      BC

  8. Tartan Brazilians
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Is Bueno a trap? Played the last 6 but been burnt with Wolves cheap defenders before. Perraud seems more nailed and Southampton good fixtures. Any other good options up to £4.5?

    Other defenders are White, Cancelo, Trippier, Patterson. If keep Bueno would upgrade White to Gabriel for goal threat.

    1. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Fine as a 5th defender, but wouldn't want both him Pattersob.

  9. PScholes18
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Instead of in a comment:

    A: Cancelo - Adams
    B: Fofana ( or other def below 4,7) - Darwin

    At A for now.

  10. Warblers
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Thoughts on this Gents?

    Kepa, Ward

    White, Dalot, Trippier, Perraud, Botman

    Martinelli, KdB, Salah, Almiron, Andreas

    Harland, Darwin, Alverez

    Hoping for steady points at the back and Alvarez to serve as Pep insurance up front.

    1. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Nice team, just a slight concern on Alverez minutes

      1. Warblers
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        My thought is that he would be bench fodder, until the rare occasion he starts over Haaland as fixtures become more congested, and he could go off in those situations. I would nearly always go 4-4-2.

    2. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Interesting shout. He's a bit more than the 4.5-5.0 fodder, but he had a great World Cup. When is he back from the party though?

    3. GREEN IS GOOD
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I thought you were worried about Almiron's purple patch drying up?

  11. nico05
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Hi, guys two questions if I may:

    What do we think of Martial as part of a 3 man forward line?

    Is it time to move Cancelo on? Would Ederson or another City def get adequate cover for their many CS?

    Cheers 🙂

    1. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Martial is too inconsistent. I think Mitro, Wilson, Toney, Solanke and, possibly, Ings are good alternatives.

      Cancelo, on GW1-16 form looked overpriced.

      1. nico05
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Cheers. I do agree just felt he may get a consist run of game for the time being. Mitro & Wilson are solid safer options though logically thinking. Thats my concern with Cancelo

    2. Warblers
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I felt liberated and relieved after not including him in my draft. It enabled me to get KdB and there's plenty of guys who can nab a clean sheet with some regularity.

      1. nico05
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        It does free up much needed funds. Do you have a City def or Ederson as CS cover?

        1. Warblers
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          I don't. Living bold!

    3. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      If Martial can stay fit then he is a good option. With Ronaldo gone the ‘front 3’ positions will be from 6 players:
      - 4 established players - Anthony Martial Rashford Sancho
      - 2 youth players - Elanga Garnacho

  12. Paul Psychic Octopus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Not turned back to FPL until now, so catching up.

    In terms of 'interesting' teams (for FPL) is this the perceived wisdom for the restart?

    Man City - to surge on relentlessly.
    Newcastle - will remain strong.
    Liverpool - turned a corner?
    Man U - on the up and contenders for Top 4
    Leicester - out of their bad patch
    Chelsea - no reason to think anything has improved
    Arsenal - won't be as strong, just because of Jesus? (thing this is being overdone)
    Brentford, Brighton, Fulham - likely to fade?
    West Ham, Leeds, Villa - no change, nothing to get excited about.

    1. Warblers
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Good comments. I'm not sure abut Arsenal though, I think they might do just fine without Jesus. I would also lump Chelsea in with West Ham, Leeds and Villa, i.e., the same comment applies!

    2. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Couldn't disagree with any of that!

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Looks a bit dismissive of Leeds, Brighton & Fulham, who are all playing some very attacking stuff that makes their attacker quite appealing for FPL. Check out their recent xG stats, all 3 are well up there competing with City/Pool/Ars/New

  13. Gudjohnsen
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Does Mendy start for Chelsea?

  14. Stranger Mings
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Currently have no city defensive cover so worth going Walker at 4.8?

    1. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Wondering the same as thinking of ditching Cancelo

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Seems v good value and assume will now play albeit sligh risk with CL

        1. nico05
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          That was my thinking even without much attacking threat he would still be great value

    2. rnrd
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Same boat, I'm having a tough time how Cancelo can justify 2.5M over Walker

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I have now sold cancello but need city cover so think Walker worth the risk

    3. Shark Team
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Expect some roation though as Pep has played some of his CBs there like Stones Akanji throughout the season

  15. Shark Team
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Isn't Kepa a risk as he isn't nailed?
    He conceded 3 in a half vs Brighton and got subbed off so what makes you think Mendy isn't back starting?

    1. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Was 1st choice for Potter until he got injured

  16. XX SMICER XX
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Which option to go for:
    A. Cancelo/TAA & Perruad/Walker-Peters
    B. James & Laporte

  17. The Mighty Hippo
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    How does this look?

    Kepa
    Robertson | Trippier | Walker
    KDB | Maddison | Trossard | Martinelli
    Haaland | Darwin | Martial
    --------------------------------------------------
    Ward | Dalot | Perroud | Andreas

    1. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Decent. Like Maddison & Trossard as can’t see too many opting for them.
      Prefer Rashford over Martial

    2. AARON-1
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      It looks strong. I'd play Dalot over Walker, though.

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Love the mids. Would rather play Dalot & ditch Walker. Get Ederson if you feel you still need City defensive cover

  18. AandyzZ
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Think I may have found a way to fit Haaland, KDB, Salah + Nunez in a draft,
    Let me know what you think:

    Kepa,

    James, Walker, Trippier

    Martinelli, Salah, KDB, Almiron

    Mitrovic, Nunez, Haaland

    (Ward, Andreas, Bueno, B.Williams)

    1. AandyzZ
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Leaves me one defender light - but plan would be to poss swap walker/mitro to cancelo/greenwood for dgw20

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Leaving you with Greenwood, Bueno & Williams? Yikes. Don't do that.

        This might work if you downgrade James. But James & Walker with no bench looks problematic. 50/50 whether Bueno is a starter imo

        1. AandyzZ
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Ahhhh I know it would probably backfire but I can’t decide who to leave out out of Salah/KDB - James is a must for me probably captain in the double

          1. The Mentaculus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            That's ok, we can still make this work for you...
            How about downgrading Walker to someone like Zouma/Botman using the change to do B.Williams - Patterson?

            1. AandyzZ
              • 6 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              That’s a decent shout - I like that

              My other thought just now which you might not like is loose ward for Iverson gain .1 and then move Bueno(not 100% starter) to Patterson?

              Not sure from looking if I Would play ward over kepa at all at the start all being well

              1. The Mentaculus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 2 Years
                1 year, 5 months ago

                Yep that's fine if Kepa is fit. Backup keeper is a luxury if budget is really tight - I'd rather have a non-playing 2nd keeper than non-playing outfield sub

                1. AandyzZ
                  • 6 Years
                  1 year, 5 months ago

                  Okay cool - that is an option - thanks for your help!

    2. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Bench is too weak. Think you have to sacrifice either James or Mitrovic to improve.

    3. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Kepa & Bueno to Iverson & White?

      1. AandyzZ
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Really would like kepa for the double though

        1. AARON-1
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          It is by no means a weak draft. One decent bench cover player is sufficient most of the time. Andreas has a double coming, too. Walker may not always play. Can you afford Patterson of Everton as cover?

          1. AandyzZ
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            That draft has me at 0.0 completely dry - I gain .2 with Walker/Mitro to Cancelo/Greenwood so could then get to a Patterson which would be better I agree

            1. AandyzZ
              • 6 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              Can I last a few weeks with that

            2. AandyzZ
              • 6 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              Actually no I don’t, scrap that - I’m exact money for Walker/Mitro to Cancelo/Greenwood as I loose .2 on Cancelo

  19. XX SMICER XX
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Think I’m there with my team (injury news permitting for Kepa James Dalot)

    Kepa
    James Walker Trippier
    Salah Kulu Martinelli Mount Rashford
    Nunez Haaland

    Ward Dalot Patterson Greenwood
    ITB £1.0m

  20. Disco Stu
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Thoughts on this lot?

    Ederson/Ward

    Trip/James/Dalot/Gabriel/Neco

    KDB/Kulu/Almiron/Rash/Martinelli

    EBH/Nunez/Mitro

  21. tim_oriordan
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    This team good to go?

    Kepa
    Cancelo, Trippier, James
    De Bruyne, Mount, Rashford, Almiron
    Haaland, Darwin, Mitrovic

    Ward, Botman, Andreas, Bueno

  22. Kane Train
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    When do player prices start changing again?

  23. Steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 14 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Wow. I came 4th 🙂 two points away from a share of £500

    1. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Well done. 11th for me! I'd forgot all about it until this article tbh.

  24. Danstoke82
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Is Walker a viable downgrade on Cancelo of it allows me to strengthen elsewhere?
