    G2G? Got 2 FT's and all chips but don't see the need (0.0 ITB)

    Kepa
    Trippier | Veltman | Shaw
    Rashford | Salah | Martinelli | Saka
    Haaland | Felix | Toney

    Ward | White | Andreas | Bueno

    1. Biggsy

      You know you don't get points for unused chips at the end of the season right? When are you planning on using them?

      Decent 11 this week. Could make that a decent 15 and BB

    2. La Roja
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Keeping the chips for next season then?

    3. No Kane No Gain
      • 5 Years

      Don’t listen to the sheep

    4. Tcheco
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I would do Salah & Andreas to Maddison & Mitoma + bench Martinelli

  3. FPL MAN 123
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    i was going to use them later in the season haha

  4. RUUD!

    Is Trent to Estupinan worth -4 this week?

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      City/Chelsea then Arsenal do not look good for Liverpool. I think its worth it because it gives you another £3m ish to spend, which I am sure gets you more points, plus Estupinan has at least another few doubles to play

    2. mdm
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yes

  5. Biggsy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Barring unexpected injuries, which two of these would you do for a BB?

    a. Gabriel to Shaw/James/Chilwell
    b. Mee to Shaw/James/Chilwell
    c. Botman to Shaw/James/Chiwell
    d. Martinelli to March/Mac Allister

    Any two leaves cash for Watkins/Toney to Haaland in 30
    or
    e. Hold the defence, do Martinelli to Bruno and roll a FT (so can get Haaland in 30)

    Kepa, Raya
    Gabriel, Mee, Botman, Trippier, Estup
    Martinelli, Mitoma, Rashford (c), Saka, Maddison
    Kane, Toney, Watkins

    1. Heavy Cream
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      C

    2. Tcheco
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Mee to Chilwell
      Martinelli to March

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I think Mee is my favourite of the three defenders. Will lose a second one if I can't find something better to do further forward. Gabriel can continue starting after 29 and Botman is cheap enough to bench.

    3. Heavy Cream
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Do not lose Marti!

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I don't want to - only player i've had all season - but his minutes are under threat and Arsenal's fixtures do turn tougher soon.

        1. Heavy Cream
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          I think he’s going to be played alongside Trossard for the foreseeable now. Winning combo. Don’t think reduced minutes will be a concern any more.

    4. Fit_to_drop
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      As a Marti seller this weekend (that fell for the thinking he would see reduced minutes due to EL exertions), I also agree. Dont sell him. The guy is one of the first on the teamsheet for Arteta right now. Wouldnt surprise me if he hauls big in the coming weeks. March is a stressful own. I know which one Id rather own.

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Yeah, I fell for something similar and moved the armband off Saka. That said, Arsenal's run from 33 to 36 is tough (arguably, the kind of tough run which makes or breaks champions and, in this case it most likely will) so I am not averse to ditching the triple-up

    5. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I think it might be the right time to lose Gabriel, given Arsenal's upcoming schedule. If you want to keep 2 ARS, I would definitely stick with Saka & Martinelli. I do love those BHA mids but I think I'd go for A & B - Chilwell & James here.

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Thanks for this, after benching his haul and playing his 2 pointer I am thinking A & B is the choice, albeit the boring one

  6. Heavy Cream
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Kepa
    Zin Mee Tripp Burn
    Saka Maddi Marti
    Watkins Toney Kane

    Raya Mitoma Estu Rashford

    Playing a BB of course. Have I missed any glaring concerns?

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Looks good. Possibly improvements if you have transfers (e.g. I don't fancy a Brentford double up when both games are against your attackers) but a solid team if that's the final line-up

  7. Babit1967
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Who would you bench from Toney & Kane?

    I know Toney has the double but the fixtures aren’t ideal. Does seem stupid benching a dgw attacker though.

    1. Heavy Cream
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I would look to bench someone else.

    2. Tcheco
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Kane if it must be between those 2. But would look at someone else

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Second this.

    3. mdm
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Just bench boost

  8. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Which combo would you choose for BB DGW 29?

    1. DDG and Chillwell
    2. Kepa and Shaw
    3. Kepa and Chillwell

    Also, who from

    A) Macallister
    B) March

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      1
      A

      But didnt see yesterdays Bri game. I know March scored but he can dodge points also. Watched March v closely in his previous league game. Seems to be an assist the assister. Similar to what Odegaard is doing at Arsenal. Feeding someone else, who then feeds the scorer.

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      3 for me - Casemiro will be a big loss for United so I wouldn't be too hopeful for a CS in 29. Yes Chelsea games not easy either, but comparatively I think they are more likely to hold the line.

      I think A but I read that he dropped back into his deeper role at the weekend so maybe monitor that?

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      3A MU looked bad and losing the game before situation changed. Mitro brace was very close.

    4. mdm
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      2B

  9. niaz1982
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Current line up for BBGW29:
    *double +flagged

    Raya*
    Chilwell* Estupinan* Mee* Trippier*
    Macallister* Rashford* Saka Martinelli
    Watkins* Kane Toney*

    Subs:
    Ward*, Gabriel, Martinelli, Almiron+

    Not sure best option between Mitoma or March - one of these allows Haaland back in for Toney/Watkins GW30.

    Was thinking about bringing in Maddison but makes it trickier to get Haaland but then Brighton have BGW32.

    Any suggestions?

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      If go Mitoma over March.

      I’m not sold on Maddison. And I own him. Though LEI were poor at weekend (again) and he is on 8 yellows and showing signs of frustration. Rodger’s also flip flops over who play up front

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I think the suggestions are

      1. Let us know how you cloned Martinelli
      2. Ward and Almiron to a GK of choice and Mitoma

      1. niaz1982
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Ha ha yes Martinelli should only be on the subs bench to many outfield players

      2. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Just to add, Brighton will blank in 32, but also likely to double another three times - so if you can manage that then you'll do well

  10. JBG
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Should I get rid off TAA as a part off a -12 upgrade for my BB team and for future fixtures?

    Transfers would then be:

    Ward+TAA+Ake+Kane
    To
    Neto+Shaw+Chilweel+Watkins

    My team would then look like:

    Neto
    Shaw-Trippier-Chilwell
    Saka-Rashford-Gakpo-Mitoma-Macallister
    Haaland-Watkins

    Bench: Ramsdale-Mee-Estupinan-Gnonto

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Looking at Trent in isolation, City/Chelsea then Arsenal do not look good for Liverpool CS prospects and he's not showing anywhere near value at the other end of the pitch.

      Not sure i endorse that -12 though - might be tempted to hold Kane and limit it to a -8

      1. JBG
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Yeah you're probably right. I might just do those other moves and keep Kane.

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          This

  11. mdm
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Which option would you choose?

    A. Zinc to Shaw
    B. Zinc to Chilwell
    C. Martinelli to Maddy
    D. Martinelli to Bruno
    E. save FT

    Thanks.

    1. JBG
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      D tbh

  12. Gandalf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    In isolation,
    A. Martinelli (LEE)
    B. Mac Allister (BRE, bou)

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      If I owned Martinelli, i wouldnt sell him. The guy is playing great football and getting into dangerous positions on the pitch.

      If I didnt own either, id probably go B on that option then. But the danger of Mac dropping out of that forward position is till there.

    2. GC123
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      B but it’s damn close because Arsenal are scoring for fun

  13. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Best move for DGW?
    Transferring after DGW Haaland in anyway.
    A) Zinc -> Shaw, after Toney -> Haaland
    B) Martinelli -> Bruno, after Kane -> Haaland
    C) Kane -> Isak
    D) Any combo of these for -4

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      So you have 1FT to make correct? If so, prob Marti to bruno has most upside. Dont think you will be holding Bruno though. Utd seem to have gotten a bit more spotty in recent weeks.

    2. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yeah 1 FT. Im really thinking getting Isak now since possible DGW 31

      1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        And I have BB activated

    3. FPL_trail_runner
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Once more im the only one saying keep your Arsenal players

      Been saying this for weeks - see below

    4. Fit_to_drop
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I would possible do Kane to Isak so.

      Kane doesnt look like he is in a team that's coming by results easily. His most recent 2 goal game was the first one in many weeks. So i think Isak could do really well against Kane over 29. Isak is hungry and it shows.

  14. fivetothree
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Thoughts please:-

    Raya (x2)
    Trippier (x2), Estu (x2), Mee (x2), Chilwell (x2)
    Maddison (x2), Rashford (x2), Mitoma (x2), Saka
    Toney (x2), Watkins (x2)

    Subs
    Kepa, Ode, Kane, Zinc

    No bench boost, do I keep Kane or bench? Any transfers needed?

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Think i would play Kepa. Dont think Raya will keep 2 CS's. I know he might get save points, but so too can Kepa. Our squads are almost identical bar 2. I am BBing this week (if they dont arrive home from the IB crocked).

    2. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I'd play Kepa over Raya - prefer Chelsea doubleup to Brentford

      Could do Kane/Ode to a DGW player and bench Mee?

  15. popey
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Was absolutely set on BB but now with Ward being dropped I have 2 non playing on my bench - probably an IB injury away from BB in 34 now

    Assume we can write off Ward as an option for the short term? Needed him for 32 aswell

    1. GC123
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Hasn’t changed my plan. Will just bring in Steele who has two games. Not sure who your outfield non-playing sub is but could consider a DGW player for -4. Who says 34 won’t see an injury or someone dropped. Each to their own but if I can get 10 doublers out and 5 strong SGW players then I’ll play it in 29

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Just bite the bullet now and ditch Ward. You need replacement twice and this is dgw. -4 to get 3 more games is worth it, unless your new gk has expected pts per match below 1.34.

    3. Black Knights
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Take a hit if necessary and get it done. Sooner the BB is done, sooner you can have fodder again as your 5th defender and midfielder. The longer you leave it, the longer your hands and value will be tied into your 34 BB.

  16. Gizzachance
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Early days I know, would you do

    A zinc to shaw dgw, zincv Leeds

    B Henry to Shaw ,keep zinc, Henry dgw away to our Brighton an utd guys, also have Raya

    Henry v zinc basically

    Cheers

    When do we think that possible DGW31 is announced?

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I was expecting today if that was going to happen.

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      GW31 starts 15th April, so given that GW29 is on the 1st and these things tend to affect TV schedules, fan travel etc etc, I suspect we will know it is on before the deadline.

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I think Crellin said it would be announced over the IB if going in 30/31

  18. FPL_trail_runner
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Afternoon all,

    Interesting weekend,

    Green arrow to just outside 50k despite taking a hit, having only 9 and moving captain to Kane from Saka on deadline.

    This season is really showing the value of being patient, ive held the likes of Martinelli , Saka, White , Kane , Salah most of the year and made big gains on people who used transfers to move those around,

    Again ive made so many terrible decisions before and blew away all my chips early (Wc1 week2, FH week 3, bb week 15, wc 2 week 17) - this made me change my playing style to me more patient

    I was over 3mil week 8 also playing against the field minus those chips so changed my playing style (bar week 17 lol) so the comeback without chips has been beyond expectations.

    Most likely Kane to Ferguson in 29. And really like my team going forward.

    Steele
    Dunk Mee Trippier
    Saka Salah Maddison Rashford
    Ferguson Toney Waktins

    Ward Martinelli white kilman

    Made a certain to change brief plan for the upcoming dgws

    30 :Toney > Haaland
    31 : Waktins > Darwin
    32 : Dunk > Liverpool def, 11 players
    33: Saka > Brighton mid
    34 : Kilman > Shaw
    35: Ederson + City defender in
    36: Fernandes for Maddison

    1. Hairy Potter
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Looks good. You might need a FT on a keeper if Ward doesn't get his place back by 32. Not tempted to go straight to Haaland this GW and then assess moves for other strikers after that? Although not having a Brighton attacker for DGW29 is a risk.

      1. FPL_trail_runner
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Yep have looked at the Ward issue but ultimately not worth a hit i feel , play steele until something changes and nobody in 32

        I have another option for 29 which i also like

        Saka + Martinelli > Bruno + March -4

        Kane > Haaland in 30

        Review likes this move alot and seems i would be up at least 10 points even with the hit so will leave it for 2 weeks and see

        1. Hairy Potter
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Shipping Arsenal players without a FH for 32 feels like a gamble, especially given their form, but could pay off with Brighton and Man Utd DGW fixtures. Without BB, I think GW29 is about damage limitation and setting team up for future BGW and DGWs.

          1. FPL_trail_runner
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            If i move out Saka & Martinelli for 29 i would have 2FT in 32 to get one back

            Following the review projections i would be up over 30 -40 points by removing Saka & Martinelli for 29

            Seems crazy but dgw for United + Brighton and Arsenal fixtures make it look possible

            Will to have to see how it goes. Hoping i can maintain my rank by week 31 and then its hopefully attack time

      Great comeback but tbh I think the next few weeks could be where the lack of chips comes back to bite you. I do like the Kane - Ferguson move though

      1. FPL_trail_runner
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Cheers

        Ya thankfully i can sit back and see what happens for 2 weeks

        Wouldnt mind a few spanners in peoples plans for 29

        May no go with Ferguson, as review really really likes this instead :

        29 : Saka + Martinelli > March + Bruno -4
        30 : Kane > Haaland (c)
        31 : roll
        32 : Bruno + Kilman > Martinelli + TAA (2 FTS) play 11

        Just those 4 weeks alone put me up (according to review) around
        20 points even after the hit in 29.

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Bruno is way overrated by some models though I think. Just realised earlier he's top of RMT for next week. Kind of agree with Hairy about shipping Arsenal players without a FH. Martinelli - March I quite like, but not convinced by Saka - Bruno. GL whichever you decide

          1. FPL_trail_runner
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            In isolation i agree Saka is a much better prospect than Bruno its just looking at it over a couple of weeks it may not be so clear cut for Saka

            LEEDS, whu, liv +4 points
            v
            new+ BRE EVE nfo

            and then Bruno becomes Martinelli in 32.

            1. Zimo
              • 5 Years
              1 year, 4 months ago

              Bruno didn't look like getting any attacking returns before the red cards. I wouldn't sell Saka even for the extra better fixtures.

              1. FPL_trail_runner
                • 3 Years
                1 year, 4 months ago

                Havent seen any of yesterdays games

                Just saw Bruno scored but it would have no impact on my plans to be honest either way.

                Pens and extra fixtures are always worth chasing

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Is Wellbeck injured and Ferguson guaranteed to start? I am considering getting Isak, especially if they get another dgw soon.

      1. FPL_trail_runner
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        No i just liked the idea of getting a bunch of cash with the ferguson move

        But i may not do it and instead get Bruno + March

      2. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Don't think Welbeck is injured - started v Palace & came off the bench yesterday. Ferguson not nailed exactly but looking increasingly like 1st choice

    4. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Congrats for rank gains! I have had horrible season for different reasons and been little frustrated and doing some too hasty transfers. More patient approach would have often been better.

  19. Mr. O'Connell
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Will be heavily against the template (bench boost) next gameweek. How much of a beating do I take?

    Double Chelsea def vs Double United def
    Arsenal def vs N/A
    (Double) Brentford/Newcastle def vs N/A
    Saka vs Salah
    Extra Mid (probs Arsenal or Brighton) vs N/A
    Watkins vs Haaland

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      What's your team?

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        De Gea
        Shaw, Estupinan, Trippier
        Salah, Rashford, Mitoma, Martinelli
        Haaland, Kane, Toney

        + 1 FT, about 1m ITB and no bench. Probs go Andreas > March and bench whoever gets injured on IB.

  20. sunzip14
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    What are people with all chips left planning to do? I have them all and following bench atm for 29, with1FT. So, thinking maybe TC is better than BB or go without any chips and probably FH32, WC33, BB34, TC37 or something like that. Any advice is much appreciated!

    Bench for 29:
    Ward, Odegaard, White, Tarkowski

    (other sgw players are Kane and Saka in the 11)

    1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      BB29
      Probably TC34
      Probably FH37
      WC likely to be somewhere between 30-33

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Who would you TC this week? Captaincy is tough. I'm going to TC Haaland in 34, assuming WHU(H) is added; BB29 & FH32.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Rashford, but best time to TC was some weeks ago imo.

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          For Rashford, sure. Still holding out hope that I've done the right thing in waiting for the Haaland DGW with better fixtures than the previous one

      2. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Agree its a bad week for TC - lot of good options but no great option. Haaland vs Fulham and West Ham/Brighton (based on Ben Crellin) looks ripe to me unless City are focussing on other competitions by then.

  21. Adzy
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Bench Boost team G2G? No free transfers available and fingers crossed team remains injury free.

    Raya
    Trippier Estupinan Shaw
    Rashford Mitoma Salah Saka March
    Haaland Kane

    Degea Gnonto Gabriel Mee

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Injuries aside, that looks sound

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I am considering Kane to Isak for free, but not certain. Richa is out and Conte wants to get sacked. Are you to start Gnonto?

  22. ct mariner
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    On BB for 29 -1 FT and 6.3 IB

    Raya (x2)
    Trippier (x2), Estu (x2), Mee (x2), Chilwell (x2), Botman (x2)
    Rashford (x2), Mitoma (x2)
    Toney (x2), Watkins (x2), Kane

    Subs
    Ward (x2), Ode, Martinelli, Saka

    Asuuming no injuries over break, best GK to replace Ward:
    1. Steele - nailed?
    2. Kepa.
    3. Neto
    4. Other?

    1. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Kepa or iverson (rogers has already said he will get a run of games)

      1. Caravagio
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I guess Iversen would be cheap 😀

    2. Black Knights
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Neto for the fixtures and the saves is who i'm considering. Otherwise, DDG?

      1. Caravagio
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        DDG would be nice. But if i go too close to 5mil. Could be squeaky bum time trying to get Haaland back in next week...

  23. Caravagio
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    BenchBoosting this week.
    I should probably get rid of ward.
    Who to?
    Is Steele nailed short term? have one Brighton spot free.

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Kepa? Steele is nailed imo as long as he doesn't make errors too big.

    2. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Steele isnt nailed but you'd expect him to get the next 2 at least.

      1. Caravagio
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I think as much as I'd want Steele short term. I'd then be stuck with him til the end of the season and he'd be using one of the precious BHA slots.

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Not 100% nailed long-term, but yes I would expect him to start both games in 29 at least

  24. CheesyGonzalez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    best keeper for gw 29, got 5.2 in the bank (already got raya)

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Kepa imo. Dull however.

      1. CheesyGonzalez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        yeah looking like it might have to be, although if i'm feeling brave might take a punt on Martinez or Navas

    2. Caravagio
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Neto's fixtures for double and until end of season actually look pretty good.. on paper ha

  25. Ha.
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Steele Raya
    Trippier Mee Zinchenko Botman Chillwell
    Saka Mac Allister Mitoma Rashford Saka
    Toney Watkins Kane

    Got to BB, right? Will then get Haaland back and start offloading Brighton assets

    1. Ha.
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      One of the Saka's should be Maddison

  26. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Pretty set on Zinchenko to Shaw. Said that, would you take a hit to get any additional doubler? Using BB.

    Bruno in means I have to take a hit before GW30 to bring Haaland back. Been thinking also about another Bri mid, just fixtures after DGW ain't looking good.

    Kepa/Raya
    Chilwell/Trippier/Estupinan/Botman/(Zinchenko)
    Saka/Maddison/Rashford/Martinelli/March
    Kane/Toney/Watkins

  27. sirmorbach
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Greetings! Any early thoughts on what seems more urgent here? Plan is to bench boost.

    Raya , Ward
    Chilwell, Trippier, Gabriel, Mee, Burn
    Saka, Ødegaard, Maddison, Rashford, Mitoma
    Haaland, Kane, Toney

    £1.0 in the bank

    Ward to DDG before getting priced out, perhaps (got just the money)? Toney to Isak to avoid any YC risk?

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Risky break to rush any exact money moves & plenty of alternatives to DDG (or alternative routes to DDG) so hold those moves til next week. Nothing here besides Ward would be really problematic to BB, but if nothing crops up then I like Isak, or maybe Gabriel - Estupinan

      1. sirmorbach
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Always sound advice! Many thanks, mate.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I am considering Kane to Isak and next week Toney to Haaland.

    3. cutch
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Ward to Steele? He's cheaper than DDG, his team is in form and his fixtures are decent

      1. sirmorbach
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Cheers!

  28. cutch
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Kepa, Steele
    Mings, Mee, Estu, Trippier, Burn
    Salah, Mitoma, Jensen, Saka*, Odegaard*
    Watkins, Toney, Kane*

    1 FT

    I will do Odegaard to Rashford and BB with Saka and Kane as my only single gws

    GTG? I'd think so, but opinions will be appreciated

  29. DavvaMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Not sure if I should get rid of Odegaard for another DGW player?

    Or

    A. Kane > Isak
    B. Zinc > Shaw
    C. Odegaard > Maddison/Bruno

    1FT and will BB GW29 and also FH in 32.

    Current Team

    Chilwell / Trippier / Schar / Estupinan

    Mitoma / March / Rashford

    Watkins / Kane / Toney

    Kepa | Saka | Odegaard | Zinc

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Much as I rate Maddison (originally intended to cap him for 29), Leicester's form, plus his performance v BRE, and the 8 YC, are starting to pile up as factors against him. Also with Ty Adams out, Leeds will be a lot more open through the middle. So I think prefer A to B to C here

      1. DavvaMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Thanks, yeah only just realised Maddison is on 8 yellows. You can never rely on what Leicester turn up.

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Yeah they looked brilliant against Villa & Spurs, shame it fizzled out. One of my favourite teams for differential attackers

  30. Nate(U)dog(ie)
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    I see Rashford has dropped out of the England squad with a "knock". Let the "injury" break formally commence!

    1. cutch
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Rashford is my only intended transfer this gw. Fortunately I'm not in a hurry and there's still plenty of time. Hopefully we'll know sth more in the next days.
