Rate My Team surgery with five-time top 1k finisher Tom Freeman

With Gameweek 10 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) nearing, five-time top 1k finisher Tom Freeman is here to help with your pre-deadline dilemmas for the next hour.

Whether it’s questions on Tottenham Hotspur’s change in schedule, captaincy, differentials or anything in between, Scout’s Deputy Editor will tackle whatever’s thrown at him.

He’ll be on hand to first reply to requests from Premium Members in the Hot Topic below the line of this piece and will get through as many as he can until the next article goes up. If there’s time, Tom will also turn his attention to other requests in the comments section.

If you’d like to receive an email notification letting you know when future RMT Surgery’s are live, you can now do so. When editing your profile, under ‘Alerts & Notifications‘, you’ll find a section on ‘Email Notifications‘. In there is an option for ‘Rate My Team Surgery‘, check that box and you will receive an email letting you know when the surgery is about to go live.

You can, as ever, chip in with your own opinions on the RMT requests filtering through – and naturally, you’re free to ignore the article subject matter and talk about any other wider FPL topics that you’d normally be musing on.

Don’t forget that, if it’s an algorithmic answer you’re after rather than an opinion-based one, we also have a ‘Rate My Team’ tool available in the Premium Members Area.

      If you go B, are you benching Nketiah?

    Guys what would you do with 2ft?

    A) Maddy porro to saka tsimi
    B) Maddy Bowen to saka mitoma

    By doing b, can get tsimi nxt week also mitoma fixtures plus higher ceiling than bowen?

        It's just a matter of one week, porro could well get a cleanie today and jumping on mitoma right from the start of their favourable fix run.

    any arsenal fans out there ?
    How are they playing in their last 2 matches ?

      Solid defence, attack not exactly free-flowing but were against city and Chelsea. One def + Saka feels sufficient

    Thoughts on
    Coufal & Gordon to Van De Van & Douglas Luiz

    Got 2FT and nothing glaring to fix

    0.4M ITB
    Areola | Strakosha
    Pau | Tsimikas | Gabriel | Branthwaite | Taylor
    Saka | Maddison | Salah | Mitoma | Bowen
    Watkins | Haaland | Mubama

    1.7M ITB
    Areola | Sanchez

    2FTs/zero in bank and not sure what to do here...

    1. Madds and Morris > Saka and Archer
    2. Morris > Archer and get Gabs
    3. Just Morris > Archer and work it out next week?
    (PS: Son out gives me more upgrade options to shift JWP, or maybe get Watkins)

    Areola
    Cash, Trips, Burn
    Salah Son, Madds, Gordon, JWP
    Haaland, Alvarez
    (Morris, Tark, Kabore)

    Thanks all!

      1 .

      If you want to do 3, maybe Nketiah?

    Lost on the last page and looking for advice:

    Am I mad wanting to go without Haaland?

    Option a) Haaland, Mubamu, Botman
    Option b) Alvarez, Watkins, Trippier

    Option b) seems so much more appealing, but I don't know if I can cope without owning Haaland...

    1. JBG
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 29 days ago

      Well I wouldn't have Botman if you want A option, he's not fit.

      1. nicholasporteous
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        My bad - option a) is my current team. Botman has been sat on the bench

    2. Crunchie

      If unsure sell in GW12. I have no idea who score more between Watkins and Haaland. Haaland has been awful but so are Man Utd and Bournemouth defence (with Neto no out).

      Watkins home to Luton is great and away to Forest is great, but he is hugging the points (apart from D Luiz)

      I won't be captaining Watkins but may captain Haaland against Bournemouth, then jump off for 4 GW's is my plan (I think) lol

        Crunchie... This is awesome advice. Thank you! I needed some logical thinking in my life haha

    • Brunsvigeren

      What to do here, 2 FT, 1.1 itb

      Areola
      Cash, Tsimikas, Udgoie
      Salah, Son, Maddison, Mitoma, JWP
      Darwin, Haaland

      Leno, Botman, Archer, Tarkowski

      Thinking of Son, Archer, Botman out for Watkins and??

    • Bourbon, Pot Still or Islay…
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 29 days ago

      Gosh

      Hard one

    • Bourbon, Pot Still or Islay…
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 29 days ago

      Sorry that was rude

    • Bourbon, Pot Still or Islay…
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 29 days ago

      I meant
      Gosh it’s a hard one
      Go against Haaland captain? I think yes I will

      But who?
      A) Watkins
      B) Salah

      Have Saka and Son but thinking A or B

      Thoughts??

    • ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 29 days ago

      Son+Saka to Salah+Palmer for free?

    • iberiaballer
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 29 days ago

      Should I transfer out Reguilon for either Lascelles or Charlie Taylor? With Udogie likely not fit, I need a 3rd defender to start. I don’t want to start Mitchell against TOT or Reguilon against City.

      Here’s my current team:

      Haaland-Wissa-Archer
      Salah-Maddison-Saka-Fernandes-Bowen
      Udogie-Cash-Tsimikas-Mitchell-Reguilon
      Areola-Turner
