    Hey Tom

    Team:
    Dubravska
    Gabriel-Estupinan-Trippier
    Saka-KdB-DouglasLuiz-Palmer
    Haaland-Watkins-solanke
    Bench: Areola-Zabarnyi-Hwang-Taylor

    2ft this week and chasing 40pts in my mini league. Looking to dead-end in gw34 and wc in 35 as advised.

    What do you think about the following sequence, what would you rather do/improve
    Gw31: Kdb-Watkins > Salah-Cunha
    Gw32: Hwang > Bereton
    Gw33: Trip > AitNouri
    Gw34: Douglas luiz > Jota/Odegaard
    (10 doublers and 1,5 itb so a bit of flexibility in the prices but not enough to keep Trippier for instance)

    Thank you !!

      Hey Tom...Start Porro or Zabarnyi? Already got Neto in goal

    • Big W
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Play
      A) Gusto (manu)
      B) Porro (WHU)
      C) Munoz (have Solanke)

      1. VardysParty
        • 6 Years

        Muniz

        1. Big W
          • 5 Years
          11 days, 9 hours ago

          It's Munoz the Palace player

        C.. he nearly scored twice vs forest

      Imagine if Tom actually performed surgery on you!

      Please help, if you could bring in any defender long term with 6 mill ITB who would you get, already have VVD and saliba

      1. tricpic
        • 14 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Depends on chip strategy but aside from doubles, Gvardiol

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Gabriel

      3. Thomas Magnum
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Dalot for something different?

      4. Stimps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        White

    • VardysParty
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Thoughts on this WC team? FH 34 and BB 37. 0.0 ITB. Wouldn’t need Martinez for a couple of weeks, and Havertz could go to Gordon if he doesn’t perform.

      Petrovic, Dubravka
      Gabriel, Akanji, Martinez, Gusto, Bradley
      Salah, Saka, Son, Palmer, Havertz
      Haaland, Isak, Muniz

      Thanks

        Looks good to me. I’m sure you know the rotation risks that come with some of those defenders, but if you’re happy to ride with them then g2g

    • GoonerByron
      • 12 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Start one this GW..

      A - Gibbs-White
      B - Muniz

      I will likely have a Forest defender coming in for Gusto so wondering if I’m better to bench Muniz and hope for the Forest win/clean sheet

      1. VardysParty
        • 6 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Muniz

      2. Thomas Magnum
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        B from those

    • Thomas Magnum
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Muniz or Semenyo? On WC and will BB in 34. Could have both but think I’ll keep that 2nd striker spot for Darwin/Toney

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        After today I think the case for Muniz is weaker until gw35.

        Of course he can continue scoring regardless.

        On a BB34 I think it's a choice between Palace and the home fixtures over the Bournemouth options.

        That might take you in a different direction?

        Mateta or Eze etc.

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 8 Years
          11 days, 9 hours ago

          Agreed. Really not sure what to make of Muniz, I still have his bgw haul against Spurs in my mind, but no double when Semenyo/Mateta have one in a week I’ll BB dents his appeal.
          Mateta is definitely an option, makes my benching headaches easy in 32&33 as I know I’ll play 5 mids those weeks regardless, so can bench him then. I know Palace don’t score much, but maybe Olise and Eze back again will change that…

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            11 days, 9 hours ago

            They looked alright in what I saw against Forest.

            Best away kit too.

      2. speardrops
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        Semenyo if you need him 34.

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 8 Years
          11 days, 8 hours ago

          Thanks. Enjoying your YouTube content this season

          1. speardrops
            • 11 Years
            11 days, 8 hours ago

            Thanks TM!

            Semenyo has looked good, really sharp. I wouldn't skimp out on Nunez if you're BB34.

            Only issue is the minutes...

    • afsr
      • 7 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Finally settled on this WC draft for now (FH34 BB37). G2G?

      Onana, Petrovic
      Gabriel, Udogie, Gvardiol, Bradley, Branthwaite
      Salah, Son, Saka, Palmer, Garnacho
      Haaland, Isak, Solanke

      It was between Darwin and Gusto or Gvardiol and Solanke, decided I trust Solanke more than Darwin

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        What’s making you trust Solanke more than Darwin? I’m tossing up between the two myself on WC

        1. afsr
          • 7 Years
          11 days, 9 hours ago

          They have the same number of double digit hauls over the season, despite Darwin playing for a much better team. Solanke is on pens, also got good fixtures and is 0.3 cheaper which allowed me for an upgrade elsewhere

        2. afsr
          • 7 Years
          11 days, 9 hours ago

          Oh and also Darwin could be taken off early or even rotated, unlike Solanke

      2. speardrops
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        Only 2 Spurs for a double double?

        I don't like the Bradley pick if he's in your team for the rest of the season and bricking your third Liverpool spot.

        Also surely you have to go x6 Pool and Arsenal if wildcarding this week into Luton and Sheffield at home.

    • JAYPEE
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Who should I play:
      A) Kluivert
      B) Watkins for Isak/Darwin for -4
      C) Doughty for Bradley for -4

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        I would consider selling Watkins. FFS have predicted Kluivert not to start

    • BlzE_94

      11 days, 9 hours ago

      GTG?

      Neto
      Porro Gabriel Robinson
      Salah Son Saka Palmer
      Haaland Isak Solanke

      Areola Garnacho Van Hecke Pau

      1. speardrops
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        1 x Liverpool vs Sheffield United at home will be horrible to watch.

    • GaribaldiT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Help please.
      I have Gusto Ake and Doughty in my defence (with Gabriel and Zarbanyi).
      Do I take a hit to bring in Ait Nouri (and for whom) or hope Gusto or Doughty plays?
      I have already taken a hit to bring in Salah so it would mean a minus 8.
      What would you do?

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Sell Ake.

        It's another -4.

      2. jonnybhoy
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        No dont take the hit.

      3. speardrops
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        Hit in an Arsenal or Liverpool defender for Doughty.

        How many hits you have taken already is irrelevant in this scenario.

      4. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        I would consider the hit to remove a confirmed injured player and ensure you have 11 starters

    • royals forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Best Watkins replacement (FH in 34)

      Muniz
      Solanke

      Any ideas would be appreciated

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Isak or Darwin?

      2. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Malcolm in the Middle

      3. speardrops
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        If you're FH34 then Isak has nicer minutes. Solanke if you want safety.

        Nunez has highest upside.

    • simong1
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Bench one:

      A) Eze (bou)
      B) Palmer (MUN)
      C) Muniz (nfo)

      1. jonnybhoy
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        A

      2. speardrops
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Horrible choices but obviously Palmer shouldn't be in the conversation.

        Muniz at a push.

      3. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        Neither. Show your full team for context

        1. simong1
          • 5 Years
          11 days, 8 hours ago

          Front 8 of which one would need to be benched:

          Eze - Salah - Saka - Son - Palmer
          Haaland - Darwin - Muniz

    • Fantasyfreakstephen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Areola + Watkins ~ kelliher + Solanke/Isak -4.
      Or bench Watkins and play Taylor

      1. speardrops
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Solanke if no FH34/WC34.

        Lol @ second option.

    • klopptimusprime
      • 7 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Bench a MID/FWD

      Kelleher
      VVD - Gabriel - Porro
      Salah - Saka - Ode - Foden - Palmer
      Haaland - Solanke - Muniz

      1. Fantasyfreakstephen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Bench Muniz.

      2. speardrops
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Muniz by a country mile.

      3. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        Muniz

    • Rbyrne95
      • 7 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      Thoughts on getting White instead of Saliba as a differential. Already have Gabriel and VVD at the back. Would be for a -4 though or play Maguire/Van Hecke.

      1. speardrops
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        White is okay, less xMins but higher threat than Saliba.

      Hi Tom,

      Having a stinker of a season. Current team:

      Kelleher/ Onana
      Udogie, Gabriel, C Richards, Gusto, Lascelles
      Palmer, Saka, Son, Salah, Richarlison
      Wood, Haaland, N Jackson

      I had a one week punt on Jackson (didn't work), Richarlison 1 point, Lascelles injured

      I can do Jackson to Darwin, or do Richarlison to Havertz to be different. What would you do? I'm chasing and have given up a bit this season.

      1. Stimps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Havertz yeah, or Isak

      2. speardrops
        • 11 Years
        11 days, 9 hours ago

        Havertz if you aren't FH34/WC34. I don't like not owning Nunez.

    • jonnybhoy
      • 11 Years
      11 days, 9 hours ago

      What to do here? 1FT 0.4ITB

      Leno
      Gabriel Zarbanyi Gusto*
      Salah (c) Saka Palmer Foden
      Haaland Solanke Watkins

      Aerola Doughty Kabore Hwang

      Is Watkins to Darwin the obvious move?

      Haaland vs villa at home or Isak vs everton at home?
      Who would you pick given their current form and gametime risk?
      I fear Alvarez would start over Haaland as it is a mid week fixture immediately after Sunday
      Please help

      So with my WC, FH34 and BB37 is clearly the better strategy than vice versa? I haven't kept up to date recently, thanks guys 🙂

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        I wouldn't say "clearly the vetter strategy" but certainly the more popular option when you factor in teams that double in 34 are to different to 35/36 and 37

      2. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        Depends what your team looks like - there is a train of thought that a WC now allows you to plan for the nicer fixtures outside 34 before you get to 37, but if your team is reasonably well set-up for that then WC close to the BB - I think I am doing FH34 WC35 and BB37. That said, I am currently Haaland-less so depends on how much I worry about not having him before the WC
