    I've done Bowen > Palmer this week.

    Do I do Foden > Salah for -4 or wait until next GW? Means I'd have to captain either Son or Palmer.

      Nothing wrong with captaining Palmer next time out.

      Or Son.

      1. space mercenary

        Yes, Palmer or Son captain sounds good to me. Might turm out to be a useful differential.

    How come I didn’t make the cut for the FFS members cup? 29 points in GW 29. Rank 76k. Did I miss out on a registration link or something?

      Sounds like it, unfortunately - we ran two of these entry articles last week and had one in the 'Featured' box too:

          I did enjoy someone asking what their chip strategy should be on an article about chip strategy this morning

        Incredibly STUPID week to hold a qualification round

      Yup.

    Is Richarlison likely to win his place back for Spurs after the international break? He was playing well before his injury. But Johnson and Werner have been in decent form too, so Son might continue down the middle?

      That loss to Fulham might have helped his cause.

      There were some cautionary words from the Brazil coach about his fitness yesterday, however, so it's worth monitoring what minutes he gets in the second friendly against Spain.

    Start Toney or Gibbs-White? Thanks in advance

      Toney

    Can we acknowledge that listening to content creators about chip strategy is really silly. These people brought you:

    TC Man City against teams they rotate highly for
    TC Solanke, who turned out to still be solanke
    Free Hit in a week with zero points on offer

    And are now advocating for bench boosting in a high rotation gw37.

    Wake up sheeple

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      By all means use content creators for micro strategy. They review lots of data to identify good picks for a match. But dont use them for macro strategy, they all are so engrossed in data they struggle to step back and see the wood for the trees.

      1. GreennRed
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Most of them know something about stats but know fk all about football. Fk all. If football was as predictable as expected stats predict no-one would watch it.

        I don’t entirely disagree but the CC’S do have decent ranks. How are you doing this year?

    Thoughts on this wildcard team? No chips left after.

    Kelleher*/Onana

    Zabarnyi*/Gabriel*/Richards*/Ait-Nuri*/Gusto

    Havertz*/Salah*/Saka*/Son/Palmer

    Haaland/Solanke*/Nunez*

    *Double 34

    (Kelleher covers Onana’s first few bad fixtures and hopefully also has the double. If not, don’t mind Onana home to Sheffield United 34).

    1. space mercenary
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Ode over Havertz for me.
      Comparable Xgi / 90 with Ode minutes slightly less risky.

  7. Philosopher's Stones

    Given you have no chips left, would like to see your current team if you can hold the WC a bit longer given there are two DGWs down the line.

    Get rid of Walker or Robertson -4? Tempted by Walker to Gusto…

    1. Funkyav
      • 14 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Walker first

  9. shirtless
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I need to cash in two players of these three to get Salah and prob Mainoo I reckon. Palmer will then play every week till the end. Was all set on Foden/Ode but having studied the fixtures I think Watkins has to go. I'd be benching him in 31 anyway. No doubles. Ode doubles in DGW34. I've had Ode since first draft so maybe I'm a little attached but it just makes sense to have three Arsenal going onwards..?

    So the question is which two, and do it this week or sit tight bench Ode and do it next week..? I feel a 24% owned Salah is too much of a gift to pass by this week and next. Foden and Ode not expected to do much this week, whereas Salah could haul. To have Salah/Son/Saka/Ode/Palmer/Haaland all in place for 31 could be very profitable!

    Areola
    Gabriel Zabarnyi Gusto
    Son(c) Saka FODEN Palmer
    Haaland WATKINS Solanke

    Is Saka + Bowen -> Palmer + Salah worth a -4 if WCing in 31?

    1. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Yeah!

  11. Camino Aleatorio
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Seems so wrong I want to transfer out Haaland.

    So I play with Saka, Son, and Salah in the mid.

    But Haaland can score 4 goals at any moment and still leads by my metrics.

    Salah seems not-fully-back yet

    1. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I have all 4 of those, it can be done.

    2. Funkyav
      • 14 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      i think the time to remove haaland has probably passed, but i think it may be the easiest way to get Salah for many people

  12. Bob B

    2 months, 4 days ago

    Which one of these three would you keep between GW31-33:

    A. Toney (BHA, avl, SHU)
    B. Watkins (mci, BRE, ars)
    C. Maddison (whm, NFO, new)

    *One of the words will be moving to Haaland, the other will be a downgrade to a ~

    1. Bob B
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      6m midfielder or forward.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Do you need to play that cheapie? If Y, who would be your targets?

    2. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      If you have Son then B&C, if you don't have Son then A&B

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        He keeps only 1.

        1. ritzyd
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I meant which he should sell in my answer, so if son keep A, if no Son keep C

          1. Bob B
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Thanks for clarifying, I will have Son so I'm also leaning towards keeping Toney

            1. Bob B
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Alternatively I could keep Maddison and sell Son for another 8m midfielder

    3. Bucket Man
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Probably Toney with them fixtures.

    4. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Not B. Tight with other two, but Maddison. And don't blame me if it fails, picking 1/3 would meann 67% chance to fail if they were equal assets.

      1. Bob B
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        I won't blame you for Watkins, he's pretty much gone next gameweek. Maddison v Toney is the big question and I'm leaning towards keeping Toney for the plum fixture.

    GW38 Ars - Eve, Liv - Wolves (CP-Avl, if Avl on the beach) could be worth targeting. Last gw is usually high scoring.

    I feel like having likes of Salah, Darwin, Trent, Saka, Øde, Havertz, Eze might (just might though) might be worth more than concentrating on an optimal BB37. Chasing big time and I am wondering what is the most likely scenario that would allow me to rocket climb the ranks.

    1. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I agree - I'm going to BB in 34 so i can WC in 35 and build it for the doubles in 35(or36) & 37 yet still have a decent GW38 team.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        I can't dead end to 34 with 3 Spurs + 2 Che. I am open to WC 35, but considering saving it and targeting gw 38.

        1. ritzyd
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Yeah, works for me as only have Palmer & Son - after transfer this week (Bowen to Salah) will have 3 LIV, 3 BOU, 2 ARS & 1 CPY so with 9 already it's an easy decision for BB34.

    2. Bob B
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      You've got to predict a lot of fixtures to know who will be worth backing in 38. Wolves could be competing for Europe, Everton competing for survival so it's not just title aspirations that come into play.

      If it's a decision on whether to prioritise 37 or 38, then 37 is the correct answer.

    Thoughts on this new FPL Challenge mode. Anyone bothered?

    1. Funkyav
      • 14 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      id prefer it if FPL sorted out the issues with its main offering first before embarking on another format

    2. ritzyd
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Will play with it, sounds kinda fun.

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I don't think I am tbh.

  15. Bucket Man
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Thinking BB37. What do you think to this WC?

    Onana, Petrovic
    Gabriel, Gusto, Udogie, Lascelles, Ait Nouri
    Saka, Salah, Son, Palmer, X
    Haaland, X, X

    A) Garnacho, Isak and Darwin
    B) Maddison, Isak/Darwin and Muniz

    Ait Nouri or someone else for £4.8 Million?
    If only one Isak or Darwin?

    1. Jrot94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I actually went Gordon, Darwin and Muniz..but you may have higher TV than me. Expect to move on from Muniz by 37

      I also went Bradley over Ait nouri, expecting to move to move to someone with a good week 37. While Everton only has 1 game, it’s a good one for example…

  16. estheblessed
    • 9 Years

    I have WC and BB left. I am planning on BB for GW34.

    Is it best to WC now? Or wait until GW33?

    Leno
    Udogies, White, Ake
    Foden, Saka, Palmer, Gordon
    Haaland, Solanke, Watkins

    Neto, Garnacho, Andersen, Van Hecke

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I don't like that idea. How are you going to get rid off all dead wood?

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      If you want to BB34 then use FTs to DE/BB34 and WC35

      1. estheblessed
        • 9 Years

        That does sound like a better idea.

  18. Stranger Mings

    2 months, 4 days ago

    Couple of questions if can help please 1) Can son match salah points gw30-31? 2) is it risky wc31 due to rotation as mid week? 3) anyone selling foden soon due to rotation risk?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      1. Salah edges it over Son in 30-31 imo
      2. Difficult to say. Some players have had a rest over the IB and some have travelled with their respective country.
      3. Currently looking to sell in 34

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks Tony issue for me is -4 for salah whilst son no hit

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Why is it Son v Salah over 30-31 when it looks like you are considering WC31? Is it not then Son v Salah - 4 in 30?

          1. Stranger Mings
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Actually yeh sorry gw30

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Currently I prefer Son over Salah (-4) this GW. I plan to buy Salah for free in 32.

              If looking to WC31 and you really want Salah, I would consider bringing the WC forward to 30.

              1. Stranger Mings
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 4 days ago

                Thanks good advice

    2. Philosopher's Stones
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I'm looking at WC31 too, but as you say, it sure is risky. If I feel I survive 31 without Haaland, I might WC in 32/33.

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        The only reason for wc31 is to get salah without hit. Otherwise will wait until gw35

        1. Philosopher's Stones
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I'm getting Salah this GW and will FH37 with BB34, so I'll need to WC 32/33 to set up for 34.

          1. Stranger Mings

  20. Philosopher's Stones
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    A few questions to be cleared before I decide WC31 or 33(BB34 and FH37 the plan).

    1. Can I survive 31 without Haaland?
    2. Can I survive 31 without Saka?
    3. Is a couple hits between now and GW 31 worth it to bring in Salah, Saka(sell and bring back next GW) and Haaland if WCing in 33?
