    Such a mild winter in the UK this year yet so many muscle injuries.

    40 odd points behind in ML I'd like to win. When's the right time to take more risk?

    Eg maybe Watkins or Hwang for captain this week?

    1. mwa1t
      • 3 Years

      They're both decent shouts regardless of the gap. But 40 points is nothing, I wouldn't start going too crazy trying to close it until the last 4/5/6 GWs

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Still plenty of GWs to claw that back especially with doubles in 34/37

    3. DA Minnion (Former great)

      Watkins out of those two.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        NFO defence is 2nd best for xGC np/90 in the last 6 games. No penalty comfort blanket either

        1. Mother Farke
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Yet they still conceded 3 v Brentford and Newcastle respectively.

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              Conceded 3 goals against Brentford @ 1.2xGC (Turner in goals)

              Conceded 3 goals against Newcastle @ 0.48xGC (Sels in goals)

            Equally, Watkins has had nearly 1 xG in each of his last 3.

            2 of Forest's last 6 have been against Championship opposition in the cup. Their 4 Prem games include 3 at home and 2 red cards for opposition teams

              3 months, 5 days ago

              Even excluding cup games & taking it right back to Nuno's appointment, Forest have 2nd lowest big chances conceded & 3rd lowest xGC

              1. mwa1t
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Fair, it's quite convincing but their fixtures have been relatively easy in that period and they're still a much better team at home than away. I think context is needed when looking at the stats here

                All this being said I don't think Watkins will get much space/opportunities against them

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

                  I was a little surprised at the stat tbf, wasn't really convinced by them at first. Still, I'm not really feeling Watkins (C) tbh

                  1. mwa1t
                    • 3 Years
                    3 months, 5 days ago

                    Me neither. I'll probably go Haaland as I'm not convinced by Saka either

                    1. NobodyF*cksWithTheJesus
                      • 12 Years
                      3 months, 5 days ago

                      I think based on this thread I'll just be sticking with Haaland myself. Time for better punts later in the season!

                      1. The Mentaculus
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        • 2 Years
                        3 months, 5 days ago

                        I'm considering Toney & Neto myself. Don't think its necessarily a bad week for a punt

                        1. mwa1t
                          • 3 Years
                          3 months, 5 days ago

                          Neto is tempting me big time

        Thanks all

    4. Warby84
      • 8 Years

      Haaland or Saka (C)

      FFS - I brought Hojland in last night for Nunez after waiting all week - How is he injured!!???

      1. EffPeeEll
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Pulled his muscle

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        If you had waited all week you’d have been fine.

      3. Holmes

        Nunez kicked him

        1. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy

          No chance he would have missed

        If you use one of the two FT this week you will have two next week. Yes.

      Guardiola on how De Bruyne is: "Good. He's not injured. I don't know if he's 100% but I think we took a good decision not to take a risk. We took a decision because he did not feel comfortable." Says he will assess him later and 'I'm pretty sure he will travel'.

        • 10 Years

        Decent news but still suggests bench and a half hour run at best

        1. No Kane No Gain
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Or 60

          1. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            In fact it might be a case of bringing him on if not winning the game at 60 or so....

        Hmm keep or sell based on this?

      Pep on KDB “He is not injured, he is better but I don’t know if he is 100%. I am glad we did not take a risk midweek”“I don’t know if we have to protect him at the weekend but I think he will travel

    16. Merlin the Wraith
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Relieved about KdB (mins still a worry) but is there any news on if Haaland has returned to UK?

    17. HashAttack

      On a FH with Saka, Neto, Chan and one other - any suggestions for that 4th midfield slot, have 14m to spend!

      1. Eze Really?
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Odegaard?

        1. HashAttack
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Thanks but I don't like Arsenal so Saka is enough for me

          1. Eze Really?
            • 10 Years

            I don't like Liverpool but I can't let that impact FPL

            1. HashAttack
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              Agree - but apart from hauls v WHU and BUR he's not really been in the points

        • 2 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Maybe Ødegaard since Newcastle have been struggling in that area too, although I kind of have a feeling that it might be tighter than most expect with Newcastle defending much deeper / more compactly and amping up the s--housery. Adingra? Maybe Doucoure?

        1. HashAttack
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          I'm thinking Newcastle might be a difficult match - was thinking Gross / Mitoma but got reminded that Everton thrashed them last season

          Could take a punt on Doku (1 goal & 4 assists in the reverse fixture)

            Classic Brighton. Won 4-1 then next meeting lost 5-1

      Hojland injury puts me back to 10
      Raya, (res)
      Gab, Trip, Bran
      KDB Foden Saka Gordon
      Haaland Watkins
      Non playing Palmer Gusto Guehi Hojland.
      Is Hojland to Solanke for a hit the only sensible move? I'd have got him next week anyway, I think. Only 0.6itb, and planning FH 29.

    19. Letsgo!

      Maddison to odegaard for -4 or rash for -4?

      Choose 2 of these 3 to line up with Gabriel this weekend.

      Cash vs NFO
      Robinson vs mun
      Estupinan vs EVE

      Xg is a joke, math used is awful.
      History suggests Watkins scores. He's scored in consecutive weeks quite often.
