      Looks good

      You should ideally plan a strategy from now till end of season which will include BB & FH. This will give you your optimum WC makeup.

      I would go for at least one keeper with a double or two at some point. Front 8 is great, benching headache though. Defence a bit ropey but you can get 3 out each week.

      I just wild carded out of this

    FPL challenge is made for the sole purpose of deterring those 1 week punters who regularly take -44 every GW to get highest score, me thinks.

    Only time will tell if it works.

      It'd be good if it worked out that way

    I like the sound of this. Think I'd prefer to create a ML based on overall season points though.

    What's everyone's thoughts on Spurs' attacking players for the foreseeable?

    My first response is Maddison & Son but Richarlison is defintely on the radar as well.

      The last Spurs game would suggest Rich has a chance to straight back in IF fit.

      Brazil coach Dorival Junior says Tottenham striker Richarlison in the midst of a “slow process” to get back up to full fitness.

      Richarlison has only recently returned to the fray following a knee complaint to have ruled him out of the last two Premier League games and did not make it onto the pitch despite earning a call-up to the squad for this month’s friendlies against the Three Lions and Spain.

      Junior admits Brazil will take “all possible care” in regards to the 26-year-old’s fitness.

      “I didn’t go with Richarlison, who made an enormous effort to get on the pitch, but he has a natural recovery process,” he said.

      “We are taking all possible care with him so as not to worsen the situation.

      “He is working little by little to get back into better condition, it’s still a bit of a slow process.

      “Richarlison was initially ruled out for this game, for the next game we’re going to rethink all of this, it will depend on his evolution.”

    Thanks FPL, give me an unlimited budget in a week when Man City v Arsenal.

    1. Sheffield Wednesday

      This could get confusing - think I'll call it FPLC to distinguish FPL Challenge from normal FPL.

    How is this WC looking?
    Will Free Hit in 34 and BB in 37

    Ederson, Onana
    Van Dijk, White, Pedro Porro, Burn, Gusto
    Saka, Son, Foden, Palmer, Garnacho
    Haaland, Darwin, Højlund

    1. FPL Virgin

      Where's Salah?

  7. Revival
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    23 days, 16 hours ago

    No need for unlimited budget this week in Fanatsy Challenge. With Man City playing Arsenal, most will avoid all players in this fixture. With the likes of TAA and Trippier injured it's a struggle to spend more than £92m.

    Can someone explain an item on fplstatistics?

    Lascelles - target: -16.6 Delta: 37,717

    I'm presuming this means he's close to an overnight price rise. Is this correct or am I reading this the wrong way?

    https://www.fplstatistics.com/

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      23 days, 16 hours ago

      You are incorrectly interpreting the information.

      Target needs to be +100 for price increase and - 100 for price decrease.

      Delta needs to be close to 0 for a price change.

      Target: Denotes the likelihood that a player's price will change overnight. Values in excess of 100, or lower that -100, indicate players that are likely to change in price.

      Delta: Denotes the additional transfers required to effect a price change.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        23 days, 16 hours ago

        For Lascelles, he is on - 16.4 and 2 upper arrows suggesting folks are currently buying him rather than selling

    Doesn’t say if captains can be changed after each match. That would encourage picking players from different time slots

    1. Sheffield Wednesday
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 16 hours ago

      "You can make unlimited changes (your starting lineup, captain choice, squad) before and during the Gameweek but these must be made before a player's club starts their first match of the Gameweek; after this they will be locked. When a player is locked, you can no longer substitute or transfer them out of your team. You also cannot change your captain once they are locked, nor can you captain a locked player."

      1. SMOOTH
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        23 days, 16 hours ago

        So if my captain plays on Saturday is he locked or can I sub him out for someone on Sunday if he blanks

        1. Sheffield Wednesday
          • 3 Years
          23 days, 16 hours ago

          It's pretty clear that as soon as your captain's club kicks-off their first match of the GW that he is locked.

    2. NJ MetroStars

      vice captain the early game player, then if that hits transfer out your captain in the later game for a plaer who is either out injured or just not playing. then the vice will bump up to captain.

      also, the format is a terrible and a waste of time

      1. Sheffield Wednesday
        • 3 Years
        23 days, 15 hours ago

        That's smart, but can I imagine dumping Salah(C) from my team because Gordon(VC) got 8 points in the early kickoff.

        1. Sheffield Wednesday
          • 3 Years
          23 days, 15 hours ago

          Actually you don't need to transfer out your captain, just switch the captaincy to someone on your team who doesn't play. I dislike this game already.

      What are people's initial thoughts on a BB37 team? Just drafted one on an FPL planner and have triple ups on Man City, Man Utd, Newcastle, Spurs and Chelsea. Anyone looking to hold any single GW players?

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        23 days, 16 hours ago

        The challenge with 15 doublers on BB37 is having to use transfers to get Arsenal/Liverpool in 38.

        1. European Bob
          • 11 Years
          23 days, 16 hours ago

          I'm probably keeping Salah for 37 and getting Saka for 38

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 5 Years
            23 days, 15 hours ago

            Currently aim is to have 15 doublers for BB37 and 2FTs in 38

            1. European Bob
              • 11 Years
              23 days, 15 hours ago

              Good shout. Was thinking BB37 would limit one to 1FT for 38

              1. Tonyawesome69
                • 5 Years
                23 days, 15 hours ago

                Yeah you can't carry a transfer when using transfer related chips in FH/WC. You can with BB and TC.

                  • 11 Years
                  23 days, 15 hours ago

                  It'll just be working out how to fund it then. Bench boost with some big teams is gonna use most of the budget

                  1. Tonyawesome69
                    • 5 Years
                    23 days, 15 hours ago

                    Darwin/Saka are straightforward to get to with 2FTs. Salah will likely require a hit. Let's see what the PL / FPL landscape is in 38

            2. The Tonberry
                23 days, 15 hours ago

                I'm thinking along the same line with this

          2. Pep bites Kun
            • 7 Years
            23 days, 14 hours ago

            Purely for context ...

            In past years, 'if' the title is wrapped up (not sure on Ars), but Klopp tends to field 'the kids'.

            In the last gw, we should be targeting teams who have something to play for rather than Liv players with possible managed mins?

        If people can be bothered and indeed myself maybe play FPL on normal internet and challenge thingy on app or vice versa

          Ist sub gets 1pt, 2nd sub gets 8pts. Who is the absolute mug now benching good players?

        I’ve looked at all the permutations for BB 34 and 37 and to have 15 doublers will mean too many lost points either side plus hits on the way in or out. You definitely don’t want hits for the single GW38 and you will want some Arsenal and Liverpool.

        I think planning for 11 doublers on those two weeks and a BB in 35 looks best, especially if Chelsea/Spurs double.

        1. Lucky Z

          What is wrong with BB having Liverpool and Arsenal players in bench in 37?

          1. shorey143
            • 2 Years
            23 days, 14 hours ago

            Liverpool away to Villa and Arsenal away to Utd.

            34 has Chelsea away to Arsenal and Spurs blank.

            Take a look. 35 or 36 should have a better BB with singles that isn’t detrimental to the weeks around it

          No, you got 20pts a few weeks ago.

          Anything drastically wrong with this WC team -

          Petrovic, Onana
          Gabriel, Porro, Lascelles, Gusto, Ake.

          Or drops back to 8 worst case, where he's been decent fpl wise?

              A just because it gives you more time to get a decent bb

            WC30, FH34, BB37

            Petro, Onana
            Bradley, Udogie, Gusto, White, RAN
            Saka, Salah, Son, Palmer, Garnacho
            Isak, Haaland, Darwin

            Might start Watkins & switch to Haaland W31.

            0.4 bank to switch Bradley as needed. Could do Kelleher, if more info comes out.

            Main quandary is Maddison/Semenyo v Garnacho, Isak

              I’m currently on same front 8 as you

              I like the White shout over Gabriel

              I’m trying to work out whether Porro is worth the money over Udogie.

                Udogie is £4.7m value for me. An extra £1.1m isn't worth it for Porro, imo

            Thoughts on this for Fantasy Challenge.

            *Allison (INJ)
            Porro Schar *TAA (INJ)
            *Jota (INJ) Maddison Son (VC) Palmer
            Jackson Muniz Isak

            Bench: Leno Robinson Salah Zabarnyi

            If Fulham keep clean sheet then Allison + TAA stay in team and Leno + Robinson auto sub in. No Fulham clean sheet and Allison + TAA are replaced by Kelleher and VVD.
            Son does well, Jota stays in team, Son as Vice captain takes the captaincy points, Salah auto subs in for Jota. If Son fails, Jota is replaced before final deadline ( probably by Salah/Foden ) and I get a 2nd shot at captaincy with Son staying as Vice captain.

              Messy format!

              Onana Kulu Nunez vs Dubravka Maddison Hojlund

              Prefer a shorter term, you can bring in Hojlund at a later date

              Could you do Kelleher Maddison Nunez?
