    Very tempted to captain Alvarez this week - he always seems to have a double digit return within him!

    (That's what she said)

      Just don't. If Haaland didn't scare you this week into submission I'm not sure what will.

      He could have had 5 goals with the chances he had and usually converts.

      I think you need to have a very specific reason to cap a City player other than Haaland. Alvarez's score will directly correlate with Haaland's most of the time if he keeps assisting him so its hard to see how this works unless e.g. Haaland comes off early

    Look like J.Alvarez who served me so well for a few game weeks will no longer be my my differential as Jackson owners finally realise that shiny new toy is a cheap knock off.
    Frustrating.
    Need a new differential, maybe Hojllund for United's next two?

    1. Ungaio

      Morris?

        No thank you.

      Why do you need a new differential?

      If you're happy with Alvarez as a pick and he's getting good points, then why would you be looking to take him out? That would just open the door to those now transferring Alvarez in to catch you up / stretch their lead if you're replacement doesn't match his points.

      1. el polako

        Might keep Alvarez but take out Watkins who is bit underwhelming for 8m and no longer on pens.

        Need a differential because with everyone having the same team the game is boring and I don't want to have a Twitter which even players score don't get me excited as everyone around is getting points.
        Need one or two players that actually make a difference when scoring and I can celebrate.

          Darwin Nunez. I think he's primed and ready to go. Only didn't start because of the international break. Liverpool look better with him up top causing chaos.

            Interesting, might consider him.

            1. The Iceman
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 15 days ago

              I second Camzy's comment 🙂

        2. Batman1983
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          I get the need in general for differentials, but not for taking Alvarez out just because others are buying him

    3. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Still a wait and see for a bit. Doku is also interesting but Pep roulette will be in full force once Grealish is back from injury.

    4. Merlin the Wraith
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Agree with sentiment but he still is a 'cheap' inroad into City side. No more prone to rotation than any of the more expensive City assets. Had him since GW2, very pleased & holding together with Rodri.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      It's a big win. Going Alvarez over Jackson in GW3 is +16 points, +0.4m in team value, +a transfer.

      All differentials end up becoming template if they are good. Just need to look ahead and move to the next hidden gem. While also ditching the duds before everyone else realizes they're bad.

      you already have Rashford and Bruno?

      1. el polako
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Have Rashford

    7. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Jackson as a differential. 200 IQ move.

    8. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Callum Wilson if you're looking short-term?

    9. Zalk
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      You don't need differentials. Your team is a differential in itself since the likelyhood of anyone else having the same team is very small.
      What you need is a team that scores you points regularly.

      1. Thomas Jerome Newton
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Sold talk.

  3. Batman1983
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    I've stuck with Jackson so far, but feel it's time to transfer him out (cue him going on an amazing scorer run...).

    Struggling to decide who to replace him with. Guess the obvious is Alvarez (already have Haaland and Archer) but for some reason, not fully convinced or happy with going for him. Limited alternatives though. Really is slim pickings for strikers this year.

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I'm getting Alvarez this week, it's been torture not owning him for the last few.

      1. Batman1983
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Yeah - just looking through the alternatives and isn't anyone else particularly tempting. There's Hojlund and I wouldn't be surprised if he was eventually a good option, but Man Utd look so disjointed at the moment there's no logic to picking him ahead of Alvarez.

        So Alvarez it is I think!

        1. The Iceman
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 15 days ago

          I actually think Hojlund is a good player but United are all over the shop at the moment so best to go with Alvarez who is flying.

          1. Batman1983
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Yeah - I can me making the change of Alvarez to Hojlund in a few weeks actually.

            Just something about having two strikers from the same team that I'm not 100% comfortable with (even if that team is Man City!)

            1. The Iceman
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 15 days ago

              If it makes you feel better Alvarez is playing in midfield 😛

              1. Batman1983
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 15 days ago

                Ha, very true!

            2. Merlin the Wraith
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Er, those two city 'strikers' are the top scorers. No other striker comes close

              1. Batman1983
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 15 days ago

                Well, Edouard is close to Alvarez and comes in £1.3m less.

                But don't think I could ever pick a Palace striker with any confidence

  4. The Iceman
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Who would you lose for J. Alvarez? 2FT.

    A) Sterling (switch to 3-4-3)
    B) Darwin (stay at 3-5-2)

    Currently leaning towards Sterling because Chelsea look toothless and I think Darwin will start the next few.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I like Darwin. A.

      1. Batman1983
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Probably A, given how poor Chelsea look currently

        1. The Iceman
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Thank you both. That was the option I was leaning towards also.

  5. Boxwoods
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Just noticed that new Chelsea fwd N. Jackson has pretty good next three fixtures. Should I get him in? Maybe for Pep roulette risk J. Alvarez?

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Alvarez for sure. Avoid Jackson.

    2. Cos I'm Not Eze E Ha H…
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Yeah hes a bit raw, but xg comparable to Haaland.

      He's bound to put away some of those chances, and team can only improve

      1. Boxwoods
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Hadn't seen much of him, but with high xG and those fix, what could go wrong?

        Cheers!

        1. Boz
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Couldn't finish his dinner and is on 4 YC already. The xG doesn't tell the whole story.

    3. Batman1983
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I'm doing the opposite - Jackson out and bringing in Alvarez

      1. Boxwoods
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Hmm. Sounds dicey to me. Haven't paid attention this year, but supposedly, Jackson is getting scads of chances, whilst articles says Alvarez didn't manage a single shot in the box this week. Yikes!

        Good luck!!

        1. Batman1983
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Yeah, Jackson is getting chances but missing them. Chelsea are struggling and so is he.

          Alvaraz on the other hand is the second highest scoring striker.

          It's bit of a gamble but given the massive difference in points between the two so far, there's a lot of sound logic behind it

          1. Boxwoods
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Mate, I was having a bit of fun about Jackson. I think your move to Alvarez is absolutely the correct one.

    What to do here with 2FT's?

    Onana, Turner
    Udogie, Gvardiol Baldock, Chilwell, Estu
    Salah, Saka, Mbeumo, Mitoma, Maddison
    Alvarez, Haaland, Mubama

    Onana and Gvardiol out?

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year

      Team looks fine for this week. Maybe Mubama to Archer?

    2. Poison Apple
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      May consider Gvardiol or chilwell to a newc defender

  9. Ajax Hamsterdam

    Chilwell

    A keep
    B sell for a Newcastle defender

    1. The Iceman

      I am keeping for one more week and seeing if he starts or not.

    2. Poison Apple
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Can save the FT if u got a decent bench option.

      1. Thomas Jerome Newton
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Thing is he'll likely get cameo to block bench, unless you mean to play instead of Chilwell?

    1. Thomas Jerome Newton
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      If you've used FT nothing looks like it needs a -4
      Would suggest Shaw to someone solid if had a FT.

      1. Lord of Ings
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        It was either shaw —> Schar/Botman or Watkins to Alvarez
        I chose Watkins to Alvarez, the forest home game looks too good to ignore and Ollie just hasn’t been getting any returns except the odd A

  11. La Roja
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    AWB out for 2 months.

    Regulion must be nailed on for WC teams

    1. Lord of Ings
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Not sure if you’ve seen United defend recently..

      1. The Mandalorian
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        He was telling us to buy Onana at the start of the season and attacking anyone who questioned this.

        Great pick that was

        1. La Roja
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Really? When have I actually someone? I should be playing for Chelsea if this is the case!

    2. Traction Engine Foot
      • 5 Years

      I owned Reguilon once, never again.

      1. Camino Aleatorio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        The man missed lots of open nets. Jackson, Timo, Darwin, Reguilon, and Havertz are some of the worst finishers of recent years.

  12. The Mandalorian

    Anyone considering Raya as their new no1.

    1. Hint

      Arsenal

    2. Thomas Jerome Newton
      • 7 Years

      I'm a nope. Seems a bit early. You think Ramsdale is done?

      1. The Mandalorian
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Arteta said he wants more control in the last 20 mins which he couldn't get from Ramsdale.

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      yep.

      definitely.

  13. Fernandito
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Foden & Jackson to Bruno/Rash & Alvarez worth a hit?

    or maybe Jackson to Hojlund Watkins or Darwin for free

        Very nice ! Not wild about joao Mario now that is looks like Di maria has pens though. Also I usually play Wildcard early and get caught out by having players from teams that have already qualified and do rubbish so think a later wildcard works better. What are your thoughts on WC earlier ?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Its true I ended up taking a bunch of hits & tanking my rank in MDs 5 & 6 last season. But I don't take UCL so seriously that I want to spend hours researching lineups / rotation so I'll just wing it 😀

          You'll be able to change your team right up to kick off for the Leipzig players, champions league make it a bit easier like that not the hour and a half b4 that the prem do to fk u over. I hope Raum plays he's really attacking

      Nice teams both, thought Xavi Simons would be a differential, but maybe not in that case.
      No Y. Sommer? Him, Bellingham and Thuram are locked in. Just mispriced.

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        4G 3A in Simons' last 3 games is hard to overlook 🙂

        I started out with Samuel Soares as (4m Benfica GK) but now I see he's lost his place to Trubin since I last looked. Further tinkering incoming...

    Do I play Darwin against WHU (rotaion risk)
    Or start Cash against CHE ?

    PLZ I'M STUCK

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Play the attacker they say... Played Mbeumo over Botman. Didn't work out.

    2. Swahealy
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Darwin, I'd be 95% sure he starts v W. ham. Keep an eye on Europa League starting team if Gakpo starts up top in that I'd be 100% certain Darwin starts v W.Ham

      1. Fantasynerdz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Yep that is true, thank you.
        I just think Villa will score against CHE and Cash could have a lot of space on the right side.

  17. Swahealy

    Yeah limitless GW2 WC GW5 looks good fingers crossed with injuries though. I had my team made out of Barca, Man city, Leipzig, R.Madrid, and Galatasary and was going to go the usual limitless GW2 WC GW3 but realised they all have great fixtures GW3 too apart from Icardi at Galatasary where I'll have 2 free transfers anyway.

      He is getting shots and he put Hojlund in positions to score this weekend. Plus the fixtures are better moving ahead.

      I just don't know who to drop just yet.

      PSA- I am having a horrible FPL season. So, if I like Rashford, that is a bad sign. Just letting you know. Don't get the impression that I am good in FPL these days.

    I've went for players with better fixtures so far (CHE, MANU) and it really hasn't worked out.
    Do I continue with this and give them time or switch to players in teams that are inform?

      Man u fixture was average at best before gw6.
      Chelsea is a bump though.

      Transfer them out gradually. No need for panic yet

    2 Questions: who score more points this weekend? Is it worth -4?

    A) Sterling Vs Aston Villa

    B) Rashford Vs Burnley

    Is Sterling to Rashford worth a hit, -4?
