Champions League

The best forwards for UEFA Champions League Fantasy 2023/24

The 2023/24 UEFA Champions League (UCL) begins next Tuesday – and so does the competition’s official Fantasy game.

We’ll have plenty of UCL Fantasy coverage in preparation for next week’s big kick-off, plus articles throughout the season.

If you’re new to the game or need reminding of the rules, check out our ‘how to play’ guide below.

Following a look at top goalkeeping and midfield options, our preview articles continue by picking out the best Champions League Fantasy forwards.

With a squad of 15 players and substitutions possible between the evenings of a Matchday, having forwards from both halves of the group draw is a great way to maximise points. This way, you know that there’ll be options on each day.

Here’s a guide to who’s who.

Best Champions League Fantasy forwards

GROUPS E-H

FPL Gameweek 4: Saturday’s goals, assists, bonus points + stats 14

Erling Haaland (€11.5m) – Manchester City

The name on everyone’s lips when it comes to goalscoring. Haaland is in the form of his life, already scoring seven from five Premier League matches. Last year in UCL Fantasy, the forward netted 12 times to help Man City lift their first-ever Champions League crown.

Another reason that Haaland should be the first name in UCL Fantasy teams is Man City’s very favourable group with Crvena Zvezda, RB Leipzig and Young Boys.

Already owned by 71% of managers, that number will only rise as we inch closer to the start. At home to Crvena Zvezda in Matchday 1, Haaland will also be a great captaincy option.

Furthermore, an honourable mention goes to Julian Alvarez (€7.0m). With Kevin De Bruyne’s (€10.5m) long-term injury, this bargain forward is set to get an extended run in the Man City attack. 

Kylian Mbappe (€11.5m) – PSG

Up next is one of the most consistent performers over the last two years both domestically and on the world’s biggest stage. We all remember his World Cup final heroics and, rightfully, he has been priced as one of the two most expensive forwards of Champions League Fantasy.

Last year’s continental campaign brought seven goals and three assists, also getting four ‘Player of the Match’ awards for an extra 12 points. Now playing as more of a left-winger at PSG, he’s running in from behind rather than being the out-and-out striker.

In four league starts, he has seven goals and a link-up slowly blossoming with French compatriot Ousmane Dembele (€8.0m). Both Neymar and Lionel Messi have left Paris over the summer. 

Matchday 1 pits them against a leaky Dortmund, a team that recently conceded two late strikes to promoted side Heidenheim. It’s a great opportunity for Mbappe to get a big haul. 

Robert Lewandowski (€10.5m) – FC Barcelona 

Another huge name is next. Over many years, Robert Lewandowski has been the lead UCL Fantasy forward. You get exactly what you want for such a price tag and that is goals, goals, and more goals.

Lewandowski and Barcelona will be looking to make amends after last season’s very disappointing Champions League campaign, finishing third in their group behind Bayern Munich and Inter. 

However, being a top seed has helped Barcelona avoid some big match-ups. They’ve been placed in a promising group with Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk and Royal Antwerp. 

Lewandowski will be licking his lips at facing the Belgian champions in Matchday 1 and we back him to go big by replicating his exploits from last year’s opening fixture, where he ended with 18 points. 

At the time of writing, he’s in a surprisingly low 14% of UCL Fantasy teams.

Rafael Leao (€9.5m) – AC Milan

Milan talisman Rafael Leao continues to go from strength to strength and his stock keeps rising. He has bagged 26 goals and 16 assists over the last two seasons to become their main threat.

His first match is at home to Newcastle United, about to have their first Champions League match in 20 years. If there are nerves, Leao and his team-mates can take advantage of this. 

On the other hand, a couple of factors that are a deterrent to Leao as a UCL Fantasy pick. Ideally, he would have been classified as a midfielder instead of a forward, whilst he’s also without penalty duties. 

That responsibility is with fellow Milan forward Oliver Giroud (€8.0m). This season’s four Serie A starts have brought six goals involvements, showing once again that you can never completely rule him out.

Lois Openda (€7.5m) – RB Leipzig 

Elsewhere, one of the summer’s low-key exciting transfers took Openda from Lens to RB Leipzig.

Last season in Ligue 1, Openda scored 21 times from 29 starts to help his side secure Champions League football for the first time in a while.

His time in Germany has started well enough, netting thrice in four starts. At only 1% ownership, he could be a great differential pick for Matchday 1 squads as Leipzig host Young Boys.

Santiago Gimenez (€7.5m) – Feyenoord 

A big part of Feyenoord being crowned as Dutch champions over Ajax and PSV Eindhoven was because of Gimenez. 15 goals arrived in just 21 starts, with six more already coming in this season’s five outings.

Given that Feyenoord start their UCL quest at home to Celtic, the Mexican is another who can provide great early value.

GROUPS A-D

FPL pre-season: Kane scores four, Pedro on pens

Victor Osimhen (€10.0m) – Napoli 

One of the world’s most prolific forwards right now, Osimhen is showing why Napoli paid almost €90m to buy him a few years ago. His 26 goals helped secure their first Scudetto in 33 years, with superb hold-up play, off-ball running and innate heading talent making him a force to be reckoned with. 

With three goals in four domestic games, the early signs are that Osimhen is in for yet another successful campaign. He should definitely be in your UCL Fantasy thinking.

Nevertheless, the one downside is that he doesn’t have penalties unlike Haaland, Mbappe or Harry Kane (€10.0m). 

Napoli start their UCL campaign away to Braga and it won’t be a surprise if Osimhen comes away from that with a goal or two to his name. 

Mauro Icardi (€9.0m) – Galatasaray 

Being a Milan fan, I remember Icardi always being a thorn by scoring goals for Inter. Now he’s doing the same in Turkey for Galatasaray, with a smart bit of transfer business getting him from PSG. 

Last season’s 22 goals and seven assists took the Turkish club to domestic success and he’s continuing the same form by already notching five times in four starts. When Copenhagen come to visit, 3%-owned Icardi could be a great shout. 

Angel Di Maria (€8.0m) – Benfica 

Another player who has got a new lease of life is Di Maria. After getting a transfer from Juventus to Benfica, he has already amassed four goals and two assists from five matches. He isn’t taking long to re-settle on his return to Lisbon. 

It would’ve been great if he was listed as a midfielder in UCL Fantasy but he’s one of several to be reclassified as a forward. 

By combining good attacking numbers with penalty duties and an opener at home to Salzburg, he could turn out to be a great bargain. 

Lautaro Martinez (€9.0m) – Inter Milan 

Now that Edin Dzeko and Romelu Lukaku have departed, Martinez is firmly established as Inter’s main man. With him, you get a consistent supply of returns – in fact, 51 from the last two Serie A seasons. This bodes well when selecting a Champions League Fantasy forward.

A strong start to 2023/24 means Martinez is in the form of his life heading into Matchday 1 against Real Sociedad.

Harry Kane (€10.0m) – Bayern Munich 

Not only did Kane finally get the transfer that he had been wanting for several seasons but Bayern have eventually found a proper number nine to replace Lewandowski. 

This feels like a great fit for both parties and there aren’t many reasons why Kane won’t be a huge success there.

Last season, Kane had one of his best-ever by scoring 30 times in the league. He’s just getting better with age and, in four Bayern games, he already has four goals and an assist.

Against Manchester United in the opening round of games, he’ll definitely be in the thinking from Matchday 2 onwards.

      🙂

    "Against Manchester United in the opening round of games, he’ll definitely be in the thinking from Matchday 2 onwards."

    Yeah, because I can't see Harry Kane and Bayern Munich scoring against the mighty Manchester United.

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      If Kane was still in FPL, the game would probably have been broken trying to fit Haaland, Mo and Kane...

  6. villian-ty
    • 14 Years
    10 months, 3 hours ago

    whats the love for Diaby? He only got an assist

    1. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Attacking midfielder

    2. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Midfielder playing up top with good track record for a good club and a decent price getting in the points.

      1. villian-ty
        • 14 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        Wouldnt D.Luiz be better? On pens and set pieces

        1. The Ilfordian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 3 hours ago

          Underrated, good pick. You can only have so many mids and I’d prefer Diaby

      2. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        And seemingly nailed

    3. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      6th highest scoring midfielder, essentially playing as a second striker in a very solid attacking side. He had a goal disallowed yesterday, was extremely unlucky not to score v Everton too.

      I do like Douglas Luiz as a pick mind as you mention him, especially with him on pens now. He's on most setpieces and whenever he gets any returns he's a bonus magnet

    4. Lord.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      He’s been lively all season and was a tight offside call from hauling in this match.

  7. Vazza
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 3 hours ago

    Really need Odegaard to go mad today. I have Saka too, but everyone has him.

    1. Mama Murphy's chair
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      I only have 2 remaining.
      Like you say, everyone has Saka, so need somwthing special from Chilwell.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        a Saka goal or two will make most people feel better about their gw score tho.

        and end of season total in years to come.

  8. Stranger Mings
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 3 hours ago

    Who is now the no.1 keeper at Brighton ?

    1. Alan The Llama
      • 14 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      De Zerbi says he's going to rotate and not on a PL/Euro basis. Brighton keepers are a strong avoid (unless you got both of them).

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        Yeh agree to uncertain

    2. boc610
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      they have two number ones, and two number twos, both of whom are number 1

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        Think will go Pickford to fleeken then

        1. Ze_Austin
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 3 hours ago

          Looks good. I hope the Henry replacement at Brentford is good enough though

          1. Stranger Mings
            • 3 Years
            10 months, 3 hours ago

            Yeh rotate with turner

    3. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Not sure why you're looking there...

      They rotate, have bad defensive fixtures, don't look good in defensive stats, don't make many saves, and there's a chance you'd want triple Brighton outfielders at some point

    4. PartyTime
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Think they sold sanchez because they wanted Steele to be the first choice, turns out they rotate goalies according to form & fixtures

  9. Mama Murphy's chair
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 3 hours ago

    1 week punt midfielder for GW6.
    Want a guaranteed starter with great fixture.
    Mitoma?

    1. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Salah, Rashford and Mbeumo

      Mitoma has the RdZ roulette cloud looming over him, but I'd be confident of a start if he's rested in midweek

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        don't think Brighton have a brilliant fixture tho. Actually home to Bournemouth is decent.

        it's gotta be Man City but guaranteed starter is a criteria.

        Rodri is the answer.

        1. Ze_Austin
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 3 hours ago

          Bournemouth attack is decent, but their defence has looked pretty bad to me

          And Brighton attack is hovering around the top of the league, even as players come and go from the lineup

          I think it's a scary combo for Bournemouth's xGC in GW6

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            10 months, 3 hours ago

            yeah, I'd agree and Forest have some form too.

    2. Tcheco
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Yes. Although RDZ roulette is stronger than Pep's somehow

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        Brighton Bingo ... you've gotta call it each week but Pascal Groß looks pretty consistent as well as Mitoma for minutes at least.

        I'd get Alvarez tho.

    3. Mama Murphy's chair
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Thanks I'll keep an rye on midweek. Saw he got full 90 this weekend.

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Zobo

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

      Probably Mitoma yeah. Maybe Fati if you're feeling really ambitious?

    6. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      Dare I say Doku or JWP?

  10. notlob legin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 3 hours ago

    Thoughts on this wildcard appreciated:-

    Areola Pope
    Trippier Estupinan Chilwell Udogie Tavares
    JWP, Mbeumo, Diaby Maddison Salah
    Haaland Alvarez Archer

    No Arsenal or Man Utd - is that a problem?

    1. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      60% Saka hole?

    2. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      The Palace stricker is smashing it

      1. notlob legin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        £0 in the bank and don't really want a benching headache, but thanks for the reply

    3. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Too many expensive defenders for me

      I think I'd tweak that to get to Saka over JWP/Diaby (Mbeumo replacement later on). I feel the 9m mid slot will be useful this season with Saka, Rashford and Son being reachable with 1 FT

      Also, Pope? Another mention of the Lenoreola from me there

      1. notlob legin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        Thanks Ze - I just feel the Arsenal goals are so spread out, but it is the safer option

        1. Ze_Austin
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 2 hours ago

          Most of what Saka's done so far have been with handing one pen over and playing without White at RB and Jesus at ST

          I'm quietly confident of a great season from Saka with things drifting back to last season's norms for him. If that somehow doesn't happen, easy switches abound

          Currently thinking of Salah - Maddison - Saka as my midfield base with transfers focused elsewhere

          1. notlob legin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            10 months, 2 hours ago

            Pope to Leno
            Trippier to Botman
            JWP to Saka?

            1. Ze_Austin
              • 5 Years
              10 months, 2 hours ago

              I like that

              Consider Chilwell to Moreno in GW9 too, but definitely not now

              1. notlob legin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years

                Thanks for your help

  11. g40steve

    I have hardly got enough time to play the Premier League version let alone any other!

    Do the others still ‘ram’ gambling down your throat?

  12. boc610
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 3 hours ago

    16k already ditching son lol. the fpl equivalent of a puppy at xmas. people talked the talk about him on here for an entire international break but never quite believed them

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      It is going to continue like this all season. Because the mids are affordable, you take out a blank and bring in a blank LOL

      1. Philosopher's Stones
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        Bring in the tank and take out the blank would've been better

    2. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Link says 1.4M?

      1. Mambino
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        I think the amount of people ditching Son is 16k

    3. Zalk
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Wouldn't surprise me if there was at least 100k teams that just tried to get max points every week, and they would transfer out Son to the next possible haul.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        possibly more but some play proxy gambling say 4 times in a season so it's a different pool of players taking hits and using chips each week.

    4. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      He’s still a good pick, just not so much Vs a low block.

      Could do a lot better Vs Arsenal and Pool next.

  13. PartyTime
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 3 hours ago

    Middlesbrough going down this season already ffs

    1. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Leicester are rocking currently

    2. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      Things can change quickly in that league but yeah not looking good for them. Was always going to be a challenge keeping it up after Akpom left though

    3. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      It's the Championship mate. A long, long way to go yet. Teams have been promoted from your position at this stage of the season before.

      There will be loads of twists and turns and possible points deductions yet.

  14. Gazzpfc
    • 7 Years

    Need Gabriel to not play today won’t happen

    1. Philosopher's Stones
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Beyer for me

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 3 hours ago

      Botman and his bonus points benched?

      or something else...

      1. Gazzpfc
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        Yeah Botman on bench

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 2 hours ago

          ouch. why tho at home to Brentford?
          I know they have attacking threat but playing away could blunt them.

          he'd likely either start or not feature at all if not fully fit to play.

  15. DMP

    Need Chelsea and Arsenal masterclasses, please.

    1. drughi

      I take 0-0 in both games

      1. DMP
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 3 hours ago

        Chilwell, Sterling, Jackson, Martinelli and Saka 2 pointers. 😀

        1. DMP
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          2 digits. lol

    2. Bluetiger1
      • 2 Years

      would be nice as have four to play

  16. camarozz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 3 hours ago

    Who to replace Onana with ,I'm done with utd defense. Have Areola 2nd keeper.

    1. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      Flekken or Leno, I think

      Since you've got Areola already, I'd say Leno for the rotation

    2. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      I'd go Leno.

      Thinking about that move myself. Onana appears to be a big preseason trap that too many of us fell into.

      I have Turner as 2nd keeper and looks like he's on dodgy ground too now.

  17. Zalk
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 3 hours ago

    Here's the team of the season so far, for 95m (96,7m if you bought them all on a wildcard now). I guess the old, and wrong, saying that you can't have Salah if you're not going to captain him goes out the window.

    Leno
    Romero - Andersen - Robertsson
    Mbeumo Salah Bowen Maddison Son
    Haaland Alvarez

      That price doesn't include the bench, does it?

      I can just about afford the team and a skinny bench, but my TV is 102.2

      1. Zalk
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 2 hours ago

        Yeah, it's 99,5m before price rises.

    2. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      So, impossible to have as you couldn't afford 4 bench players on top of that.

      Other than that slight but important fact.......

      1. Zalk
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 2 hours ago

        Slight correction, this team is 99,5m before price rises, forgot the 4,5 forward in the first post. So you could afford it before the start of the season (99,5). The point is still valid about Salah, which was my main focus.

  18. FOO FIGHTER

    Green arrow so far this week which inclides a -8.

    Gone from 2.4 to 1.5m. Was at 1.1m but then they decided to remove the 1 point bonus from Alvarez for some reason.

    Have Saka, Chilwell and Disasi to play.

    Where are you sitting at?

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

      216k on 30 points. Red arrow down from 170k. Turner, Chilly, Beyer, sterling, Jacko to play

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 2 hours ago

        You are doing well, hope your remaining players give you a boost!

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

          yes thanks. Though there are so few points still between big rank differences I try not to take that too seriously until second half of the season

    2. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      Estupiñán to Botman autosubs will bring me as close to a gray arrow as I think I've ever been in this game

      Currently on 344k to 280k according to LiveFPL. Saka Sterling Chilwell left

      By the way, Henry's injury means Disasi gets yet another GW in my squad, so I'll probably start him in GW7 and then sell for Villa's LB in GW8

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 2 hours ago

        I am keeping double CHE defence up to GW8. No point shifting when clean sheets are dead.

        1. Ze_Austin
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 2 hours ago

          Oh yeah, it's because clean sheets are dead that I'm getting Villa's super attacking LB for their run 😀

          Could keep and even play Disasi vs Burnley in GW8 if I get another reason to delay the sale, definitely

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      Gone 1.5m to 1.1m. Yeah I’m a bit confused with the bonus reduction for Alvarez. I’m in 35 points with 6 left to play.

    4. Mama Murphy's chair
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      37pts 2.4m >> 1.5m also lol
      Only Saka and Chilwell to go.

  19. Buck The Trent

    38 with 4 left. Surprisingly a chunky green arrow from 100K to 50K

    Any other Liverpool players to include from (Gw 6 to Gw12)?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      Diaz probably.

      Or Nunez if you can take the benchings and impacts from the bench.

      1. Bluetiger1
        • 2 Years

        Thanks - will monitor

    2. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      I think our only other nailed attacker is Szoboszlai, but I'd rather have any of the other good mids in the game right now, as there aren't many bad fixtures for most attackers these days

      1. Bluetiger1

      Salah or no one in my opinion.

        think Diaz will be decent in-between his South American excursions.

        but I'd rather have Diaby or others in midfield this side of Christmas because of the travel factor in Oct and Nov.

    4. agueroooooney
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 1 hour ago

      I like Diaz but hard to know if he'll be rotated

  22. Make United Great Again
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 2 hours ago

    Salah seems to be way less explosive. Still doesn’t feel like he’s worth 12.5.

    But none of the other expensive midfielders seem to be doing well so..

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      I don’t really see the point in not having him. Especially the way the prices have been set up this year.

    2. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      As Yoda would say, Have him or don't have him. Up to you it is

    3. Zimo
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      So relatively he is worth it

    4. Camzy
      • 14 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      It doesn't matter that he's 12.5m if you can afford everyone else you want.

    5. KAPO KANE

    I don't have him, but want him by GW9. With Alvarez and the 6.5 mids as enablers, feels like he's a player to jump on as the fixtures get better and the Liverpool midfield starts to gel.

    Hmmmm... Dilemma, 0.5itb (exact amount). Wanting to do Baldock-Botman this week with 1ft. Botman rising, Baldock bombing. I hate doing early transfer but a 0.2 swing would be painful.

    1. Rupert The Horse

    2. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      Botman is preeeetty far from a rise. That's -60.5% on fplstats, because he was around -100% for a while before the clean sheet

      Baldock is close to dropping, yeah. But if anything goes wrong in Europe, that's a -4 or someone comes from your bench

      It's the kind of move I'd make without thinking twice, but my strategy always involves TV building. I wouldn't advise it unless you've got a good bench to fall back on

      1. Merlin the Wraith
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 2 hours ago

        Yeah just a Baldock fall would price me out. My other defs are Estu/Chilwell/Udogie/Cash so plenty of cover

        1. Ze_Austin
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 2 hours ago

          Yeah, the kind of move I'd make 😀

          1. Andy_Social
            • 11 Years
            10 months, 2 hours ago

            Ahh, Botman. He was in my WC draft until a couple of hours before the deadline, when someone here pointed out that Henry rotates very nicely with Udogie, and I thought that with both free of midweek ties, that was the way to go. Alas, I got done by the only injury of the day, and so my first intended transfer is to get Botman after all.
            At least that puts to one side any kneejerk responses to Son and Maddison, but I'll wait until after the midweeks in case further injuries occur, by which time Botman probably will have risen anyway.

          2. Merlin the Wraith
            • 8 Years
            10 months, 2 hours ago

            Appreciate your input, I'm happy with rest of squad & like the idea of having decent 5 at back to cover/rotate especially with euro games about to start (a nice benching headache lol) Thanks again, will see what happens this afternoon before committing. Will be a long week! 🙂

        Off the bench is likely, but with so many late goals, I noticed a heck of a lot of substitutes were on the scoresheet yesterday.

        Yeah I have exactly 4.7 so could do either. Probably won't do Udogie, don't like the fixtures.

    E) Diaz double up with Salah

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Any interest on JWP or Doku? WC soon? Out of those Diaby.

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        Not keen on jwp based on previous seasons. Considering WC this week

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 2 hours ago

          Fair enough, he's performing well with WHU. He could be Lingard 2.0 😛

          1. RamaJama
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years

          Current team:
          Turner
          Estu, Chilwell, Akanji
          Saka, Rashford, Maddison, Diaz,
          Haaland, Watkins, Alvarez

          Johnstone, Mitoma, Kabore, Baldock

          Want the likes of Areola/Leno, Udogie, Cash, Salah, Mbeumo

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            10 months, 1 hour ago

            You've got Diaz (ofc he's not Salah) and defence is good enough. Could well get one of Botman/Udogie/Cash with 1FT before WC. And Areola for GK until WC.

            Mbeumo is something to think about as it's a formation change. Is it worth WC-ing now? Not entirely sure, my humble opinion.

            1. RamaJama

    2. Valar(Keith)

      Diaby

    3. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      Diaby or Bowen out of those. Sterling/Foden seems a bit short term. Diaz a rotation risk.

  29. Tinfoil Deathstar

    Easy roll this week I think. But will do Foden to Mbeumo if any leaks about him being benched.

    Any other bright ideas?

    Pickford
    Trippier - Chilwell - Dias
    Saka - Bruno - Rashford - Foden - Sterling
    Haaland - Jackson

    1. Andy_Social

      It's more that Brentford have a pretty sound defence.

    2. Rupert The Horse

      Brentford are usually pretty solid, they never get 'whipped' and plenty of CS...

      1. Derbz87
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 2 hours ago

        Would we all agree it was his fault they lost yesterday? Where was he going on the penalty? And he got very lucky with the disallowed goal too for Wilson. Early days but he looks the weakest link in that defence and they've just lost Henry who is very underrated in footballing terms, not so much in FPL.

    5. Cok3y5murf
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 2 hours ago

      I got him on WC last GW and regret it. Will ride out his next two good fixtures and then just bench for Areola or sell.
