    People are aware that the generous pricing means you don't have to buy players from

    Luton, Bournemouth, Sheff U, Burnley, Brentford, Everton, Forest, Brighton, Palace, Wolves, Fulham, West Ham, United or Chelsea, right?

    1. Holmes

      Not if they are expected to score more than elites.

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Well broadly people are stacked on the other 6 teams, so yes I suspect people have realised that.

    3. x.jim.x

      3 months, 19 days ago

      Let's see your squad then

      1. Bob B
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Probably owns Rodri and Rice

  2. Whats the Mata?
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Who scores more this week only (gw28)?

    A. Foden +4 points
    Or
    B. Jarrod Bowen

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 15 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Is GW30 a factor or are they sold/benched then?

      1. Whats the Mata?
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Can get Bowen in 29 for free anyway.

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 15 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Thought FH, have a similar decision and not sure.

    2. Ëð
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      A

    3. Top Lad Dakes.
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I’d probably rather have Foden

    4. Whats the Mata?
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Can get Bowen in 29 anyway for free.

    5. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      A

    6. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      All Foden needs is an assist, so A

  3. Top Lad Dakes.
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Thinking I might save FH and go with 7ish players in BGW29…

    Thoughts on the below moves for this GDW28, with that in mind? 2FT 0.6m ITB

    Haaland Darwin to Solanke Morris

    gives the following team, + 10.2m ITB to get Son next week and then worry about getting Salah/Haaland back after that.

    Areola — Dubravka
    Saliba Gabriel Doughty — Porro* Branthwaite
    Saka KDB Foden Palmer — Garnacho
    Watkins [Solanke] [Morris]

    1. Ëð
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I'd probably just do Darwin to Solanke

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Fair - cheers for reply!

        Just roll the other FT then? Don’t fancy in-form Morris DGW?

        1. Ëð
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          I think haaland in one gameweek could get more points even against Liverpool... And it gives you 2FT going into the blank gameweek.

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 15 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      7 isn't great but you know that.

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Aye - could be 8 with a hit.

        Just don’t massively fancy the other fixtures / players bar maybe Bowen and another Spurs player… slim pickings

  4. Ëð
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Anything worth a hit here for this week? Not planning to use FH in 29, so likely to take a hit next week to field 8 or 9 by bringing in Toney/Bowen

    Dubruvka, Turner
    Gabriel, Doughty, Reguilon, Taylor, Baldock
    Foden, Son, Saka, Palmer, Anderson
    Haaland, Solanke, Watkins

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Nothing worth a hit mate gtg

      1. Ëð
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks!

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 15 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Haaland out goes either way.

      1. Ëð
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks. It's a tricky decision for sure. But I don't think worth taking him out for a hit. Trickier decision with a FT.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I would be tempted to gamble on Haaland to Morris

      1. Gazza2000
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Would do this as well

  5. Boz
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    KDB, Foden, Haaland to Son, Bowen, Morris? (-4)

    Will have 8 for BGW29 without using the FH

    1. Ëð
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Don't like bringing in Morris for a hit. Can you do the first two moves?

      1. Boz
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah no issue, I just thought 3 fixtures rather 1 would make up the hit

    2. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      City score a few against Liverpool (as predicted) and your season is done.

      1. Boz
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Small exaggeration

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      It looks good on paper until Man City turn up at Anfield and do the business on the pitch.

    4. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Looks good

  6. No Kane No Gain
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Will the Bournemouth defence suffer a lot without Senesi this DGW?!

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 15 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Managed last GW.

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      He's sold and an attacking threat.

      They might struggle in later games but looks okay at the moment.

      They've been through a run of 9 games with bad form, 9 with good results and their 8th game of poor form was a win, albeit at Burnley who are struggling to score.

      They could be a streaky side with another good run upcoming...

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        *solid

        Well he was!

  7. AC/DC AFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Is Tuner to Norberto Neto a good idea in goal?

    Bench Sensei to sell soon(ish) and play Solanke in their double.

    Leaves me with £0.3m itb to just afford KDB and Solanke to Salah and Muniz in gw30 as it stands.

    FH29 if that matters.

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      In isolation yes. Who is the other GK?

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Benching Martinez home to Spurs.

        It also brings an early BB opportunity into play from gw32 on ...

        Could bench Martinez at City and Arsenal too in gw31 and 33.

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Tough one as I think I would rather use the transfer to remove Senesi, your weakest link

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            I can just bench him

            Not sure which defender improves on him with £1m itb into gw28.

            Who would you recommend? Up to £5m ish.

            If I wildcard around gw31-33 it's probably okay.

            I'd play Gabriel, Moreno and Gusto in 28 with Bradley second sub.

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              Bournemouth defender in this GW would leave the WC option open rather than forcing it

  8. Tonyawesome69
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Bookies odds for DGW28:

    Bournemouth:
    - Expected 4.65 goals
    - 43% and 33% CS

    Luton:
    - Expected 2.15 goals
    - 17% and 11% CS

    Man City:
    - Expected 1.80 goals

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      The goals look quite high for Bournemouth who've struggled to score at home.

      Just 12 scored at home and the 4th weakest side.

      https://footystats.org/england/premier-league/home-away-league-table

      Clean sheet odds look more appealing...

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Probably more weighting towards the opponents defence

      2. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Bournemouth are facing teams that have conceeded the most goals and third most goals and its their away fixtures

        1. Nomar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 14 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          What worries me is that they went one up against Burnley then decided to take what they had and park the bus.

          Not sure they'll get away with that against Luton, who can score goals against anyone.

          I also would think Sheffield United will play this game vastly different to how they played the last few. They have to surely look at this as a winnable game.

  9. STRNATOR
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Is Semenyo choice?

    1. Podorsky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I thik so, he passe dteh eye test agaisnt Wolves. Thinking of taking out Haaland for him this week.

      1. STRNATOR
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Thank you.
        I try it!

  10. Vovhund
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Regardless of chip strategy, who would you rarther own for GW28:
    A) Tavernier

    C) Havertz
    D) Palmer

    1. STRNATOR

        Thanks.

        Let me put the question in context:
        A) Archer/KdB to Solanke/Tavernier (-4)
        B) Archer/KdB/Estupinan to Solanke/Bowen/Doughty (-8)

        Plan is to FH29, WC30

  11. The Yorkshire Pirlo
    • 8 Years

    Solanke/def in for -4?

    Neto
    Gabriel Ake Estu

    Haaland Watkins Semenyo(C)

    Turner Foden Konsa Trippier*

  12. AC/DC AFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Bowen
    Palmer
    Havertz

    Got to be Bowen home to Burnley, then Palmer with Newcastle on the road again...

  13. Karan14
    • 8 Years

    Dubravka
    Gabriel Saliba Estu
    Son Maddison Foden Saka
    Haaland Watkins Solanke

    (Areola Garnacho Porro Cash)

    Haaland, Foden & Estu to Morris, Bowen & Doughty -8?

    Solanke to Toney BGW29 (10 players no hits).
    Garnacho to Salah(c) GW30
    WC GW31
    Thoughts?

    1. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      Got a similar plan, go for it.

  14. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    I'm thinking of doubling up on Bou's defense. Which one should I go for,

    A) Kerkez
    B) Smith
    Zab is the other one.

    1. Woy_is_back

    Senesi....keep or sell?

    1. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Injured for a couple of week, sell

      1. tmstrand
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 19 days ago

        A couple of weeks? Is that official?

        1. iFash@FPL
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Better to wait for the gaffer’s press briefing.

      2. JBG
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Sell

    2. Woy_is_back

      Any chance Leipzig kicks out Madrid tonight?
      Would be lovely

      1. JBG
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Doubt it, Bellingham back for RM as well.

    3. CRAZY TRAIN
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      1.8itb & 1FT

      Areola
      Gabriel Gusto Bradley
      Saka Son Foden KDB
      Solanke Haaland Watkins

      (Garnacho Taylor Reguilon)

      KDB > Bowen is tempting me, or should I prioritise a Bournemouth defender?. Plan to FH GW29 and WC will be soon after.

    4. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Wildcard gw30 could turn out to be the right plan.

      Most won't have 2 FTs regardless of what they did in gw29.

      So to restructure your squad into a Salah build 2.0, and not to have to take a hit into an early Mo return against...

      Brighton & Hove then Sheffield United at home, when those that can will load up on him is possibly the 'optimal' chip strategy...

      You're welcome.

      1. Bob B
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        31 will be more optimal, more information regarding doubles.
        Salah in, in 30 shouldn't be too difficult!

      2. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Don't need to WC if you've been planning with FH GW29 in mind. I can get the team below for a -4 which can easily be transformed into a DGW34 BB team if BOU, EVE, SHU & CYP) double as predicted, then WC GW35 and GW36 with the mini Chelsea (v Spurs/Brighton, or Arsenal) DGW and DGW37 in mind.

        Dubravka (Areola)
        Gabreil, Porro, Zabamyi (Branthwaite, Richards)
        Salah, Son, Foden, Saka, Palmer
        Haaland, Wadkins (Muniz)

      3. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Can likely afford Salah for free in 30, or for a -4 (which involves having Muniz vs. SHU).

        Will be saving my WC for nor information and better DGW37 prep.

    5. Silecro
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      That Senesi injury is incredibly annoying. Would you:

      A) Senesi > Zabarny -4
      B) play Brantwaithe vs man utd away

      Playing FH in 29

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Tough, if you plan to start the Bournemouth defender in 30-32 then I would consider the hit

      2. The Iceman
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 19 days ago

        A as you’re playing FH in 29.

    6. Bob B
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      A.
      Morris (bou, cpl, NFO) +
      Foden (liv) +
      Saka (mci)

      B.
      (-4)
      Solanke (SHU, LUT, EVE) +
      Barkley (cpl, bou, NFO)

    7. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Good afternoon. What is the best play here?

      A) Start Garnacho
      B) Start Groß
      C) One of the above to Barkley (-4)
      D) Senesi > Zabarnyi (-4), bench Garnacho and Groß

      FWIW: I will be trying to save my FH in 29.

      1. JBG
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        If Højlund is back A, if not B. Could easily do C tbf, because you're not going to use FH. But then you have to expect Barkley to outscore them by at least 4.

        1. The Iceman
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Thanks. Tough choice, not entirely convinced by Barkley this week...

          1. JBG
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Yeah, I'm not that interested in midfield options tbh. Could pay off, but hard to choose which one will score/assist as well. Chong can suddenly outscore Barkley.

      Good afternoon Tripos students. Some advice please before I write my 4th Law of Motion.

      Watkins is gonna be a real conundrum after GW29. His fixtures are really not great. No doubles. But his form is incredible atm.

      I think I lean sell in GW31 for Darwin vs SHU.

      Watkins's record vs top teams is pretty bad.
      Mcy - 1
      Tot - 5
      Liv - 2
      Ars - 2
      Mun - 2, 2

        Probably one who you could hold for too long, I'll be selling him on WC in 31

          Yep for sure and it's a nice opportunity to beat the more template and safe managers.

        Currently have Watkins to Isak/Darwin planned in 30/31 to afford Salah

          mcy, BRE, ars, BOU, CHE, bha, LIV, cpl

          You sure you wanna hold him through that with 0 doubles?

            Scored or assisted against all of them bar the top 3 in the reverse fixtures and you want to sell for that donkey?

        2. Bob B

          Please hold your triple Villa

            Well thats not smart at all. We are talking about Watkins here who is so clinical at the moment. Best phase of his career, why he would stop scoring suddenly?

        i wouldnt say its that bad. plus Villa are chasing CL they will be pushing hard.

        Another significant factor is that Villa are quite likely to have a deep run in Europe & I'm just not convinced they have the squad depth to maintain their league form throughout a Thurs-Sun routine. Dip in form for Bailey or a couple more injuries could hit them really hard

      Estu > Doughty for -4?

      Yay or nay

      1. iFash@FPL
          3 months, 19 days ago

          I would do it, if no other defender in the team.
          Who is available if you bench Estu?

        Bordeaux's Alberth Elis is "waking up" from an induced coma and "seems to be gradually recovering" from a serious head injury, says the striker's family.

        They added they are remaining "cautious" and that "the next few days will be crucial".

        All the best wishes and prayers for Elis.

            Dwarfs all our FPL worries. Wishing him a full & speedy recovery…

          In a bit of a pickle here.
          Spent my FT this week and got Senesi and Salah in my squad. My original plan was keeping Senesi through their run of good fixtures and also keep Salah throughout the season, while in GW30 get Son for KDB, and in GW31 get Saka(+Fofana) for Gordon(+Toney). FH in GW29.

          Thinking about bringing in Zabarniy and/or Saka.

          Would you
          A: Take the -8 and do both transfers? This would mean bringing Salah in at GW31 again (like the original plan with Saka was).
          B: Take a -4 and do just one of the transfers? If so which one?
          C: Do neither - this means Mykolenko and Gordon comes in to the team, and the only hit taken will be in GW31 as planned.

          Thanks for the advice, guys.

          who to bring in?

          Doughty with the DGW
          or
          Bowen vs BUR

          1. Boss Hogg

            Both.
            But depends on your gw29 plans. If you are free hitting then maybe just Bowen. If not, then both for -4 makes sense to me.

            Who are they replacing in your team?

              3 months, 19 days ago

              Estu or Hwang - so both sensible moves

              i am planning to FH29 and WC30ish anyway, so i kinda see it as a 1 week move almost

              1. tmstrand
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                3 months, 19 days ago

                You probably don't have Hwang or Estupinan in your XI? If you'd expect them to outscore the two they are replacing in your XI by more than 4, I'd do both. If only one, I'd probably do Doughty. But depends on the rest of your XI.

          To C or not To C?
          TC is the question.

            • 3 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Tempted myself

            Can't beat the fixtures

            Only thing stopping me is Solanke fully fit and on form and will there be a better opportunity for TC further along

            If you are using another chip in 37 then I would TC this week yes

        5. Feed tha Sheep
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          If I can get to this team with -4 should I save FH in 29 (have WC already)

          Areola
          Doughty Pau
          Son Bowen Maddison
          Watkins Toney

          1. Feed tha Sheep

            I would save
