    Jota & Darwin > Hwang and Watkins -4? Gives me playing 10 and rectifies my huge error in taking out Watkins l, blinkered as I was by DGW fever.

      In isolation yes, but easier to answer if we could see your whole team

    Shame after all our planning how this "double" is going with Jota/Darwin/Ake/KDB even Adebayo either playing 1 game, half a game or missing out completely.
    Tough luck for some. Of course, we know KDB can come on and do well but we knew rotation was likely. Just those unlucky injuries that have hurt us. Thanks goodness I have Foden and Walker. I feel fortunate at the moment. Hard luck for some. Hey ho...

      Nice having Alvarez and Diaz and not following the herd 😉

      1. AARON-1

        Indeed. I swerved KDB for this precise rotation risk even though he can kill teams in half an hour. Foden getting a great run of games and hasn't been rested yet. Bournemouth next. Maybe my picks will all miss out in gw26!

          Would be very on brand for FPL for all our picks to miss out

    I've got nine players for the blank and zero Arsenal players, which has screwed me over the last few weeks.

    A) Jota, Darwin out for Odegaard, Hojlund (-4)
    B) Estupiñán, Jota, Darwin out for Senesi, Saka, Solanke (-8)
    C) Estupiñán, Jota, Darwin out for Van Hecke, Saka, Hojlund (-8)

    Areola (Dubravka)
    Estupiñán Maguire Branthwaite Reguilon (Doughty)
    KDB Foden (Salah Jota Palmer)
    Haaland Toney (Darwin)

    Any advice is appreciated.

      Darwin + Jota > Odegaard and Watkins -4?

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 27 days ago

        0 in the bank, forgot to mention

    2. Zenith UK

      Quick glance over. B if you can get away with not playing Senesi vs MCI.

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 27 days ago

        He'd definitely be benched. Thanks!

      2. ididnt

        Hwang and Watkins then

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 27 days ago

          Nah, those options aren't bad, but should I keep going without Arsenal?

  4. Saka White Rice

    Bunch of noobs buying Salah lol. Maybe they are in a WC and want him for gw27 and 28 but it's still stupid

    1. Zenith UK
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 27 days ago

      I wanted him for this GW. Got talked out of it. Kept Richarlison & Jota instead. Look where that got me.

      1. Saka White Rice
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 27 days ago

        I'm talking about people bringing him in for GW26 where he doesn't even play!

        1. Zenith UK
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 27 days ago

          Fair enough 😀

    I’m glad KDB is benched cause it means he’ll play Bournemouth

    KDB will haul from the bench, heard it here first.

    Non owner

  8. Kodap

    If KDB is benched that's ruined me, I TC'd him over Haaland..

        I mean.. no need to be so sarcy is there. I'm behind in a lot of leagues so yes, thought it would be a nice differential & didn't think for a minute that he would rest his most creative player considering how close the title race is.

        1. Saka White Rice
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 27 days ago

          The fact that he started in that cup game should have been enough for you to know it was very likely he wasn't going to start the next two games

        2. Gunners in Haaland
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 27 days ago

          You are not alone. TC'd Kevin too

      2. Ginkapo FPL

        I said that before the deadline and had a lot of angry responses, so your post isnt fair

    2. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 27 days ago

      Ouch, saved my TC for later 60%+ using this week

    3. Philosopher's Stones
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 27 days ago

      Know what you were trying to do as you were looking to climb the ranks. You could still do well off the bench as us Haaland TCers don't have much to show for so far either.

  9. Saka White Rice
    • 9 Years

    Pep: I haven't learned my lesson yet. Let me bench my best player for the second time and realise that I need him and bring him in at half time. The opposite scenario where he starts and leaves soon if not needed isn't risky enough for me as a manager.

    1. Kodap
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 27 days ago

      does this hint at a benching, or starting haha?

    2. theplayer
      • 10 Years

      He's protecting him from injury clearly

    3. putana
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 27 days ago

      you realize kdb cant start 3 games in 7 days right? He already looked tired against chelsea

      1. DA Minnion (Former great)
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 27 days ago

        He was rubbish against Chelsea.

        1. putana
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 27 days ago

          he was fine in the first half

        2. Zenith UK
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 27 days ago

          MCI were rubbish against Chelsea

  10. Ginkapo FPL

    This dgw, like many before it, has become dead to me. So much promise, so little delivery.

    1. Qaiss
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 27 days ago

      Where was the promise?
      Pep roulette
      Klopp always rotates with 3 games in a week
      Brentford and Luton

      Even if Jota and maybe Darwin didn’t get injured, it’s no guarantee they’d have played twice

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 27 days ago

        Adebayo, Jota, Doughty, Toney were my hopes plus double Everton cleanie and Estu

  11. The-Red-1

    Very tempted to WC away from this team to the one below. Had planned to negotiate 29 with hits and save the FH, but WC now and FH 29 is tempting.

    Current:
    Allison Areola
    Trippier Gabriel Saliba Doughty Branthwaite
    KDB Foden Saka Palmer Jota
    Haaland Adebayo Darwin

    WC team:
    Neto Areola
    Sensei Gabriel Saliba Doughty Branthwaite
    Salah Son Saka Palmer Neto
    Haaland Watkins Solanke

    1. Ginkapo FPL

      Doesnt feel that different

      1. The-Red-1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 27 days ago

        Changing 7 players, but yeah I see what you mean

    Did pep not learn his lesson from benching kdb v Everton

    1. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 27 days ago

      This, he’s the key to unlock defences.

      Flekken mega haul loading

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 27 days ago

        Presumably Bernardo plays instead. Its not just all on KDB

    2. putana
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 27 days ago

      he was never going to start 3 games in 7 days. Looked off against chelsea too

      What was the score?

  13. Ginkapo FPL

    I just got 64 points off the back of calvert lewin this season. If you think thats mad, my friend with b3n mee and armand traore got 29 points from on loan holgate. To find out how visit fantasyfootb4llscout.c0.uk

    Does Pep know I gave City straight win?

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 27 days ago

      But the very next day he gave it away

      1. PartyTime
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 27 days ago

        He had better not give it away tonight

  15. putana
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 27 days ago

    The thing with Ake is now I'm not even sure if he starts in 26. Such a waste to use a transfer on a defender

    1. Cheese Crunch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 27 days ago

      why wouldn't he start?

      1. putana
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 27 days ago

        why wouldnt he start today?

      2. Cheese Crunch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Update: seeing Ake benched for Brentford. Wow.

        1. Ginkapo FPL
          • 12 Years
          4 months, 27 days ago

          Might start next week then

  16. jimmy.floyd
    • 7 Years

    Jota to Bowen or Douglas Luiz?

  17. AC/DC AFC

    Just looked and thought I could win my England cup game with KDB ....

    At this stage I'll take 35 mins and Bournemouth in gw26.

      He's my TC so i'll take anything haha

  18. nerd_is_the_werd

    4 months, 27 days ago

    Is it worth changing captaincy Mbappe (c), 9 points?
    Players left are:

    a) Fullkrug or Darmian and
    b) Saka or Di Lorenzo

    In UCL, you get to rotate the armband so effectively get 2 shots at it.
    If Saka is worth a punt, then Fullkrug (c) is a free hit.
