    Afternoon all,

    1FT £4.1 ITB

    Assuming Solanke is out for this week and not moving Toney to him, looking to move on Estu/Guehi. Who is the best def option for the next few weeks? Saliba?

    Dubruv (Turner)
    Gabriel Estu Ake (Porro Guehi)
    Saka Richy Foden Palmer (Neto)
    Watkins Haaland Toney

    Cheers

    Is that Sanchez back as no1 for Chelsea?

    Ironically I can field two goalkeepers in GW29

    1. Skonto Rigga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Bench Boost!

    2. im1974
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      …and how many others?

    GW29.

    Think I'll be lining up with:

    No GK
    Doughty
    Son - Richarlison - Bowen
    Watkins - Morris

    Should be enough?

    What's your FHs otherwise?

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Off the top of my heax, summat like

      Flekken
      Reguilon - Porro / Udogie / Doughtry
      Son - Richarlison - Bowen - Kudus - D Luiz
      Watkins - Toney

    2. Moxon
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I plan on fielding 9 without any hits

      Flekken
      Doughty | Reguilon
      Son | Maddison | Bowen | Barkley
      Watkins | Toney

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I can get to 8 for free

      Areola
      Pau, Porro, Doughty
      Son, (Richarlison or Bowen)
      Watkins, Adebayo

      Feels reasonable

    Don't get your hopes up yet Estupinan owners...

    RDZ on Lamptey: " I hope Tariq can be available for Saturday, Joel Veltman as well. Milner we will need another two to three weeks. We lost Jack Hinshelwood, who was very important for us, Mitoma. Joao Pedro, two to three weeks again, Ferguson I hope can play Saturday."

        "Channy [Hwang Hee-Chan] felt his hamstring a little bit which for a squad as small as this, especially in that area, is a disaster but trying to pick the right ones to rest and which ones can play was a tough couple of days for us. Channy's doesn't look too serious, seems like a little one."

        7 to 10 days apparently.

    Anyone going against (c) halaand this week?

    After such a fine defensive display this evening, utd may well have the strength to keep halaand shackled?

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Not sure if you’re being sarcastic, but it’s going to be a massacre.

      1. MikeS
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        You did detect some sarcasm there yes, although I still don't think it will be as bad as people say. Utd always seem to raise their game Vs city as they hate them so much

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Was 6-3 (practically 6-0) last year and we actually had a full defence then. They’ll score as many as they want.

        2. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          City averaging something like 3 goals a game in the last 5 games Vs United. One victory for United in that time...

      2. Old Bull
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        It should be but haven’t you learned by now that football results especially in FPL terms, have a nasty habit of biting you in the bum.

      TC on Haaland and triple City attack here...

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Keep the TC for 34 imo

    4. Scalper
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Don’t do it. Last season uniteds defence was better, and haaland still destroyed them at Etihad.

    5. RICICLE
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      The fact is this. United are going to be torn a new one……..again.

    6. im1974
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      As a UTD fan I’m nowhere near that optimistic opinion chap. But here’s hoping…….

  7. Old Bull
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Ok, currently on 6 for GW29 with reserve goalie.

    Areola/Kamaski
    Doughty Pau
    Son
    Toney Watkins

    Thinking of going down the Spurs route as their fixtures after 29 aren’t bad.

    Thoughts?

  8. Aster
    • 3 Years

    Play Bowen or Senesi?

  9. FPL Virgin

    Would a paragraph on a hot take chip strategy been too much to ask? 🙁

      I'm using the FPL Virgin TC strategy for what it's worth 😉

        3 months, 25 days ago

        Good man!

        It has started to fall into place nicely with Haaland fluffing his lines in 25.

  10. Tonyawesome69

    3 months, 25 days ago

    Hwang Hee Chan felt something in his hamstring, its small - nothing like Neto or Cunha

    Disappointed that we lost him, hopefully it’s not too serious and we can get him back out there soon

    I’ll be amazed if Hwang plays vs Newcastle

      What happened to Neto? Or does he mean his old injury?

        Aye his old injury, Nate

  11. RICICLE
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Am I right in thinking FH had to be the best going forward?

    If using it for DGW’s down the line, aren’t the teams that will be doubling of low calibre anyway? And if they’re good teams that are doubling like city/Arsenal et , then you’ll likely have those bases covered anyway in your normal team with or without FH?

    Maybe I’m just getting confused, but with the utter chaos now, 29 seems perfectly fitting to using the FH surely.

    1. Bennerman
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Yes, that's how I'm seeing it.

      1. RICICLE
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Cool, I was just having a think about it and it just seems so logical to use it in 29 with not much gain from holding it for later doubles as most people will have main culprits covered anyway.
        Well I’ll be playing it in 29 anyways, cuts out so much worry and leg work.

        1. Bennerman
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Yeah. And loads of prep time for this doubles - including, for many, use of a wildcard.

          1. Bennerman
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Those doubles

          2. RICICLE
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Exactly, so much time to navigate in the lead up to the doubles, and like I say most desired players will likely already be in your team.
            Nothing against people saving FH of course for the doubles, but it just seems…..needless and not much upside to hanging onto it.

    2. im1974
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Not much benefit in 29 for sh*t defences that I can see. 2pts a player seems likely. Get 7 up top and that’s fine

  12. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Maybe easy but…

    1) Sort Estu, start Bailey, bench Hwang
    2) Sort Hwang, play Estu,
    bench Bailey
    3) Sort both for a hit

    1. Atimis
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Probably play Bailey and sell Estu?

  13. Biggsy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    This might sound a bit crazy, but would a hit for Maguire to Doughty make sense?

    Means I can play Doughty this week (and through double in 28 and in 29), bench my injured players (Pau and Porro) to keep them for 29 (assuming no news ruling them out). Luton will probably score Vs Villa so good chance he is involved. Very little chance of a positive score from Maguire anyway so should pay off?

    Gets me to 9 for 29....

    1. BOATIES FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Gives you a couple of extra fixtures and keeps your FH in the pocket for later so sounds like a solid plan to me

      When I'm back at work on Monday I'll let Tom know this post came up, think it'll make his day.

        Would love to see Tom back on these boards. I've been supporting WGTA since day dot on here and have been listening since episode 1.

  15. OptimusBlack
    • 11 Years

    Hwang & Darwin >
    Son & Watkins
    Yaaay
    Nope

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 6 Years

      Easy yes

    2. BOATIES FC

      Yes

  16. FPL Virgin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    So who on here or on FPL twitter was the first person to post a FH29 draft?

  17. Tonyawesome69
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    I can get 8 for 29 using FTs assuming all are fit. Might just save the FH.

    WC31, FH34/37, BB34/37

    Areola
    Porro Taylor
    Son Rich Bailey/Luiz/Bowen
    Toney Watkins

  18. BOATIES FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    With only Areola and Watkins having fixtures in 29. free hit looks a certainty for me.
    If I roll this week, I'll hsve to use 2 transfers in 27 as it resets to one transfer the week after you free hit right ?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Correct

      Please note that when playing either a Wildcard or your Free Hit chip, any saved free transfers will be lost. You will be back to the usual 1 free transfer the following Gameweek.

    2. Croaker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Yes

    3. RICICLE
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      FH’ing 29 is best use of it anyway imo

      1. BOATIES FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        I think if I could get 9 out or more out without hits I'd keep the FH and really attack a double with some differentials but in my boat it's a no brainier.

        1. RICICLE
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 25 days ago

          I dunno, it could work, but to me it’s not really squeezing that much extra out of a FH. Seems a lot of hassle to try and get so many players in for it. Reasons outlined just above really in comments.
          But yeah…..absolutely using FH in 29, all handle taken out and plenty to time to prepare for the Doubles with FT’s and a few hits if needed. Will have main players anyway.

  19. KingZamalek
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Any midfielders worth getting from BOU?

    1. RICICLE
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Only Tavernier sticks out as an option but not been in form of late. Good player though.

      1. Yes Ndidi
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Kluivert at 4.6 might be worth a look. Benchable at that price and gets reasonable minutes.
        Scraping the barrel a bit though

        1. RICICLE
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Yes he is an option you’re right there, it is scraping the barrel though like you say, I’d probably prefer a single GW’er over BOU mids for their double.

  20. BlzE_94
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    What would you guys do here? £2.1 itb

    Neto
    Gabriel Senesi Ait-Nouri
    Salah* Saka Foden Hwang*
    Haaland Watkins Solanke*

    Areola Garnacho Van Hecke Pau*

    A) Hwang -> Richarlison
    B) Salah -> Son
    C) Salah + Hwang -> KDB + Son

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years

      B

  21. Bobby Digital
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    You can roll a transfer when using BB right?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Correct. Non transfer related chips in BB and TC don't impact FTs

  22. Letsgo!

    Seems like i will defnutely need fh 29. Only got watkins and son..

    1. RICICLE
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Just Areola & Watkins here haha, but I was always going to use FH in 29 anyway, it’s the ideal reason why the FH exists for a GW like 29.

    2. Yes Ndidi
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      There is a chance they're the only ones of note that score more than 2 points anyway.

    3. FPL Blow-In
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Currently have

      Areola
      Moreno, Porro, Taylor
      Richarlison, Bowen
      Watkins

      Going to get Son, Barkley and Toney in with my 3FT between now and gw29 to field 10 for free

      1. Riverside Red
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Are you WC'ing GW30

        1. FPL Blow-In
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          30/31 yeah. Still have all chips intact. Likely FH 34 and plan towards BB gw37

          1. Riverside Red
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Looks good

    4. jammie26
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Watkins and Areola. Oops.

    5. Riverside Red
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      FH for you is obvious...but not for those with 5 players already...if you have the principle players e g Son, Watkins, Toney, Bowen, etc. FH is a bit of a waste...why not WC and get the benefits of the GW leading up to 29

      1. RICICLE
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Wildcarding now? In the lead up to 29? Then you’ll have all that driftwood to remove surely?
        For the reasons outlined above, I just don’t see how a FH in the future doubles massively outweighs who people will have in their teams by then anyway even without a FH.
        Absolute best use of the FH imo is GW 29, the. WC’ing in 30/31, and plenty of time to navigate doubles from there.

        1. Riverside Red
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Not really that much of a problem if you select 8/9 quality GW29 players

          1. RICICLE
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 25 days ago

            I guess so, I see the point, I just don’t see huge upside to holding onto FH because it isn’t going to massively put distance between people even without it for the future doubles, suposoe it’d be nice for some differentials but that’s about it.

            1. FPL Blow-In
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 25 days ago

              Everyone will have the key players in 29 also so same argument applies

              1. RICICLE
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 25 days ago

                It does haha! It’s basically the same thing, to me it just makes more sense to use it in a GW the FH was perfectly designed for. Too much hassle and planning to try and grab all these players to dead end the team. So much more simply to FH 29, then WC 30/31, all subjective of course though.

        2. FPL Blow-In
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          For me it’s clear. When I WC early 30’s, I will want 3 premium. That stretches funds a lot so if I wanted to BB 34 3 premiums probably wouldn’t be possible. FH 34 allows 3 premium on WC and to FH 34 to spread some of those funds for the dgw and I can drop one premium in the preparations for dgw37 BB

        3. Letsgo!

  23. sankalparora07
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Should I play a FH in 29 if I can get to this team after taking just one hit?

      Areola

      Son Bowen Richarlison
      Watkins

          Probably. Effectively 4 players as GK/Defs are irrelevant (fit or not) If you have 6/7 up top then fine

        Saving my FH, playing 8, unless the 34/37 fixtures get confirmed soon, anyone know when?

          I would be surprised if any rearranged fixtures were announced before the international break after GW29

            Oh, didn't realise an IB coming up. That's annoying!

        Got 4 for 29. And 2Ft,can get to a decent 8 without hits. Would you freehit or save chips for the doubles?

          8 is a proper 50/50 call imo.

          FH imo, can’t see using it for future Doubles massively outweighing who people will have in their squads by then anyway.

          it depends, if you have Spurs/Fulham and Villa you could WC GW31 and /or 33 even 35.

          GW30 Spurs home to luton
          Fulham away to Sheff Utd
          Forest Home to Palace
          Brentford home to Brighton
          West Ham away to Newcastle
          Villa home to Wolves
          Chelsea away to burnley (do a hockey cokey)

          GW30 isn't that bad, better than Arsenal V Man City,

          I might get triple Spurs/Toney and play 8 (but get Neto GW28 instead of Kaminski, that's the only dilemma, but if that is worth a extra hit for neto.

          But not interested in defenders anyway.

          I don't see any CS, or Udogie or Regulion maybe worth a go.

        Start Estu or Gusto?

        Also, would you take a -4 to replace Estu with Gabriel (would mean a -8 total this week!)?

        About to watch Dune2 and I’ve already eaten all the chocolate coated macadamias! Maid Template very displeased. Advice please.

          It'll be hard for any other film this year to top the Dune Part Two experience. Incredible.

        Huang to Son the logical option right?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          yep

        Have 4 atm (god i wish i did Luiz instead of FOMO Hwang), I don't think Luiz get much away from home biut would have been benchable or in GW29
        (Raya Turner)
        Monero, Doughty (Gusto, Gabriel, Estu)
        Bowen, (Foden Hwang, Palmer, Saka)
        Watkins (Haaland, Solanke)

        If I do Hwang to Son this week, then it is either Neto/Kaminski, but Raya./Kaminski is no good GW30. Neto vs Everton may be better?? Gw30

        Spurs have Luton, West Ham Forest
        Chelsea have Burnley Man Utd Sheff Utd
        Fulham have Sheff Utd Forest Newcastle.
        West Ham have Newcasle (Spurs) Wolves (not so great
        I wont bring in Burnley.
        Forest have Palace, Fulham (Spurs), but none are interesting either.
        Brentford have Brighton, Man U (and will be sold before villa.

        I think with a couple of hits, the fixtures after for Spurs/Chelsea, Fulham and perhaps Toney are not too bad, (I just wont sell Solanke, Saka and buy back Haaand on WC31 with salah on wc GW33, or even 35.

        Anyway the point is for 4 teams the pictures are quite good afterwards, and you could go Haalandless against Arsenal. GW30
