      Kudus

      Kudus

    3. Nanook

      Kudus. Everton’s D has been solid. Each of the others has a good fixture for attackers.

    Bench 1:

    Bowen
    Hwang
    Saka
    Son
    Palmer
    Haaland
    Solanke
    Watkins

    1. Zenith UK

      Hwang

    2. nolard

      Hw

    3. Nanook

      I’d bench Bowen against a competent Everton/Dyche D. Hwang v current Newcastle D is a better fixture for him than Sheffield IMO.

    Thoughts please? 1FT, 1.5M ITB

    Areola
    Trippier, Gabriel, Estupinan
    KDB, Saka (c), Foden, Gordon, Hwang
    Haaland, Watkins

    Dubravka, Semenyo, Doughty, Porro

    1. Zenith UK
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Solanke double rise makes me priced out by exactly 0.2M for KDB & Semenyo > Son & Solanke (-4), so do I take a -8 for Estupinan > Senesi as well? All incoming players would start (Hwang to bench)

      1. nolard
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        no

        1. Zenith UK
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          What moves to make then?

    2. Nanook
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Hold and play Hwang. Do those same 3 moves next week for -4 as long as Senesi doesn’t get a YC.

      1. Nanook
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        And bench Estu. Play Porro if fit or Doughty if not. Estu starting can’t be trusted and 1 point cameos are frustrating.

      2. Zenith UK
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Thought of not having Solanke vs Burnley makes me want to cry 😀

        1. Nanook
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Ha ha me too. I don’t have him either but planning to hold my nerve this week and play without. Probably transfer Haaland out next week for him, if he’s fit?!

  4. nolard

    GTG?

    Martinez
    Gabriel, Braitwaithe, Moreno
    Salah, Gordon, Palmer, Saka(C)
    Toney, Haaland, Watkins
    ---
    Hwang, Bradley, Estu, fodder gk

    1. Zenith UK
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I'd be tempted to start Bradley over Branthwaite personally

      1. nolard
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Yes, moreno/branthwaithe out for Bradley has been considered.
        Otherwise fine? Anything worth a hit?

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      • 2 Years

      Bradley over Moreno especially if Pau is out. Maybe swap Gordon/Toney with Hwang, not too sure on that one

      1. nolard
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        thanks!
        Agree on Moreno.
        Pretty fixed on the MF. All pen takers those you mention too.

      2. Zenith UK
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        I wouldn't lose Gordon with his home form and OOP potential

        1. Wobbles
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Isak is back now so I'm guessing he may move back out wide again.

    3. Nanook
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Play Hwang over Toney. Think the Newcastle suits him better than Sheffield and Newcastle has been poor defensively. I’d also play Bradley this week if you think he starts.

  5. Kodap
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Anything worth a -4 here? 2.8m in the bank & unsure on leaving Palmer/Porro on the bench but no idea who to drop for.

    Areola
    Botman - Gabriel - Senesi
    Saka - Bailey - Foden - KDB
    Solanke - Haaland - Watkins

    Dubravka - Palmer - Porro - Doughty

    1. Zenith UK
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I think you're G2G. Porro back soon and if you haven't lost Palmer yet, I wouldn't want too. Only changes I'd consider would be GK out for Neto but doubt that's worth a -4 to be honest!

    2. CHICKENDINNER3000
        3 months, 28 days ago

        could go doughty over botman

      • nolard
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        GTG
        Consider if Palmer should start for Bailey?

      • sahara07
          3 months, 28 days ago

          bench KDB?

        • The Mentaculus

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Would swap Botman/Porro if fit

          1. Nanook
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 28 days ago

            This

          thanks for the replies guys, appreciated

      • CHICKENDINNER3000
          3 months, 28 days ago

          which defender to get rid of first?
          A. Estu
          B. Konsa

          1. Nanook
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 28 days ago

            A. Out of favor and getting cameos . . . if you're not FH in 29. Konsa could be fit by then? If you will FH 29 then both need to go and I’d probably sell the injured player first.

          What you do with Estupinan is a mere whisper in the wind.
          The defining decision that will very likely determine your success is what you decide to do in GW 29.
          Currently it's 50/50 for F. Hitters against those that will soldier through, I'm pretty
          sure I will be one of the soldiers . Godspeed my fellow knights ....

              we'll see what happens today and tomorrow

                • 11 Years
                3 months, 28 days ago

                Sure agree but regardless I am almost sure to soldier through whatever . Is totally dependant on individual team set ups granted.

                1. CHICKENDINNER3000
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    nice, how are you set up? I've only got 2 playing atm so I'll probably have to free hit unless we get some upsets

                    1. Debauchy
                      • 11 Years
                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      Yes agree if you only have 2 I guess your hand is dealt so you have to maximise on the next couple gws to get you the edge.
                      I have 5 but likely 6 already so is easier to get to at least 9 starters but likely 10 with 2 or 3 max hits .

                Its a 30pt gameweek. Not even about soildering, simply ignore and profit the weeks either side

            • CHICKENDINNER3000
                3 months, 28 days ago

                bench one: gross, palmer, hwang

                  Nah, FH29, hope only 3 games in that GW

                    • 6 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    FH chip made for it

                  2. Debauchy
                    • 11 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    FH with only 3 games is oh so risky though, if only 3 games will take my chances on 8 to 9 starters without a FH rather.

                Darwin to Solanke
                or
                Neto to Son/Richarlison?

                    Agree. Makes it easy if Darwin still injured.

                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      And Solanke isn’t?!

                Akanji or Ake and why?

                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  Got Ake myself, but don’t know the answer to your question. Akanji was not fit when I bought Ake and clearly need to stick now.

                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  Neither. City plays Pool and Arsenal on either side of a blank in 28-30.

                Will KDB finally start ?
                Or get rid ?

                  He’ll start next 2. Very important games.

                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    He'll probably get injured, I'd be surprised if he starts both

                  I will hopefully sell for Salah, he's ruined my season

                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  No he can't start his hamstring is shot the same one that kept him out for absolutely ages

                  Potentially career ending at 33 if that goes again and then like it did medical team are heavily managing him.

                Benching Hwang all over the community, what a contrast to last week when so many hyped him. Would you be surprised if he’s got a brace? 😛

                1. theplayer
                  • 10 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  I'm playing him so hopefully he does. It would be classic FPL.

                2. Scalper
                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  It’s a matter of who your other players are.

                  Watkins, haaland, Solanke aren’t getting benched

                  Palmer, Saka, son, KDB, Bowen likewise.

                  Only so many spaces in the team.

                  If he was playing Sheffield again this week I’d start him though.

                  1. WVA
                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    I'd bench KDB

                  2. Magic Zico
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    It's fair and it's logically how the benching decision is made, but you know what will (could) happen? NEW defense is not the best in the world.

                    1. FourLokoLeipzig
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 6 Years
                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      Not the best in the world by a distance. The worst in the league in fact, which is making it hard to sell Hwang for Son

                3. WVA
                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  My benching record has been ridiculous lately

                  Trippier
                  Foden
                  Gabriel
                  Solanke
                  Sold Bowen

                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    So you're benching Hwang this week? 😛

                    1. WVA
                      • 7 Years
                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      Yep

                      Salah Saka Foden Palmer
                      Haaland Watkins Solanke

                        Life is not always linear, far from it, but it could be Hwang brace then 😉

                  I’d play him if I had him.

                Play Estupinan or ditch for a hit? Thinking Doughty or Senesi

                Subs are Porro, Baldock.

                Have Gabriel, Saliba

                  • 6 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  I ditched him for Senesi but for free, i still think it's probably worth a -4 considering their fixtures and double up.

                  Doughty has been disgraceful since I brought him

                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  Worth a hit in the long run IMO

                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  Play Porro if fit. If not, I’d be willing to ditch for a hit for one of those two.

                • 7 Years

                I benched Foden for Bowen and Foden scored a hattrick

                I sold Bowen for KDB and Bowen scored a hattrick

                Let me know if you want advice

                  I bought in Bowen for KDB this week as part of a -8. It’s all luck

                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    I'd had Bowen all season, why on earth did you bring Bowen in with his and West Hams form

                    1. Dušan Citizen
                      • 10 Years
                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      Because we saw Paqueta is back and Brentford concede for fun? Whz on earth did you bring injury-risk player?

                        • 7 Years
                        3 months, 28 days ago

                        Brought KDB in for Bowen for the DGW and Bournemouth for free, lost out on 20 points

                      2. WVA
                        • 7 Years
                        3 months, 28 days ago

                        Brentford conceded 1 goal away at City

                          They also kept a clean sheet away to Wolves.

                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      Honestly, heard KDB was benched just before the deadline and wanted a player for gw29, like I said it’s all luck

                What’s your plan for gw29?

                I’m currently building towards it with transfers and saving FH for a double game week.

                Currently own 6 players, hoping the cup results fall my way, own Doherty so potentially 7 players. Would be handy if Chelsea Arsenal game is on

                1. Magic Zico
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  FH here, make my life easier and lighter 😆

                  1. Debauchy
                    • 11 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    Easy is good but is only a temporary fix

                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      Yeah, that's fine. Will seek for another temporary fix later on.

                  • 14 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  FH29 unless Chelsea get knocked out of the FA Cup.

                3. Debauchy
                  • 11 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  Likewise but do not want the Arsenal Chelsea game to be on as that would bring in a mass of players that are currently forced to FH

                4. I Member
                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  Building towards it with transfers and currently have 6 but I disagree about the Arsenal-Chelsea game. If that ends up being on it will make it easy for FH 29ers to change their strategy and save the FH.

                    • 11 Years

                    Exactly I- us ''soldiers'' need rewarding for our patience lol

                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      Going Bowen over Hwang has already rewarded me quite nicely.

                        • 11 Years
                        3 months, 28 days ago

                        Grrrrr lol but great move mate , in for me in gw 28 along with a doubler or 2 depending on FA results.

                  Ignore it. Continue to buy players based on four weeks lookahead

              • Camzy

                3 months, 28 days ago

                It's kind of funny actually how the game actively rewarded players that went for players in GW29.

                The managers that decided to 'attack' the fixtures like Odegaard, Hwang, Neto with a view to FH29 all got burned while the Luiz, Bailey, Bowen crowd all got rewarded.

                In FanTeam where there's no FH, I went Luiz in every team and surged up the ranks.

                1. Ginkapo FPL
                  • 12 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  West Ham and Villa were better picks than Wolves irrespective of gw29. Wolves dont destroy teams, which defeats the benefit pf playing the Blades.

                2. Magic Zico
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  I went Sarabia and Ait Nouri in FanTeam 😛

                3. Nanook
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  Villa score goals, especially at home. And they were playing a team that concede plus they have a good schedule in the short term and a fixture in 29. Additionally, Luiz is on PK and FK and either him or Bailey cheap enough to be eight attacker if desired. They were/are good picks.

                  Ode, Hwang, and Neto could do well this week too.

                3 months, 28 days ago

                Foden to Son is a tough one. Leaning towards keeping Foden at the moment. Anyone strongly for or against the move?

                1. Wobbles
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  I'd wait and see what sort of form Son shows this weekend.

                  1. Debauchy
                    • 11 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    Yep agree

                2. Debauchy
                  • 11 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  With you I , I'm keeping Foden and KDB this GW Fulham were all over MU for much of the last game . Perhaps MU decide to try and ''dig in '' but if they concede fairly early well then the score could be anything . Looks like Son only in for me in 29 but have Richarlison.

                3. Etihader
                  • 10 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  I would not rush. If Son stays on the wing, I would not do it personally.

                • 10 Years

                Solanke not even in the squad…

                      3 months, 28 days ago

                      Probably just rotation given Maresca said Leicester would make wholesale changes themselves.

                      1. Etihader
                        • 10 Years
                        3 months, 28 days ago

                        If it were a rotation he’d be on the bench 100%

                          Personal issues to attend to perhaps.

                    That didn't take long, lol. I guess it may solve a lot of benching headaches this weekend.

                  Solanke out of squad. Sounds like an injury to me.

                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  I'm sure he's played all other fa cup games or at least been in the squad

                  1. Sprinterdude
                    • 3 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    Solanke that is

                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    I think he was left out in one of the earlier rounds. We will probably find out soon enough.

                  He went down heavily on the weekend but got back up despite moving gingerly for 5/10 minutes.

                  A) Archer > Solanke
                  B) Porro/Pau > Senesi
                  C) KDB > Son
                  D) two of the above for -4. Which?

                    A this week if Solanke fit and C next week. Or hold transfer if you think KDB starts and do both next week for free.

                      Thanks! Not sure whether KDB starting the FA cup match just now is good news or bad for owners like myself

                        I’m in the same boat. I’ll likely move KDB to Son this week or next depending on fitness/minutes.

                  Here goes. For those wanting maximum carnage in BGW29, you want all the PL teams to beat lower league opposition (no kidding...) and the following:

                  Luton over Man City
                  Brighton over Wolves
                  Man U over Forest

                  This means no extra games in 29 beyond the 3 that already exist.
