    Right, no more tinkering.

    DDG

    Alderweireld, Cancelo, Tierney

    Son, Saka, Fernandes, KDB (VC), Gundogan

    Kane (C), Lacazette.

    Button, Yedlin, Mitchell, Brewster.

    Shyed away from dbl United attack due to funds and feel more risky.

    3 x City, 3 x Spurs, 3 x Arsenal, 2 x United, 1 x Newcastle, Palace, Sheffield United, WBA

    HEWT team. GL all.

    Is Cavini worth a shout this GW?

    I personally don’t think so. He may start but a very good chance he is on the bench too

    I was all set to go with Martial up until talk of Cavani being started ahead of him. Either way it would be a good chunk of cash to get a 1 point cameo so not selecting either myself. Now have my free hit team as:


    De Gea
    Saiss, Tierney, Dias
    KDB(c), Fernandes, Son, Saka
    Kane, Lacazette, Wilson

    Norris, Gundogan, Clark, Mitchell


    Good luck!

    Really glad I'd already planned FH for this week because my head would have melted otherwise. Good luck all!

    FH this week

    DeGea
    Tierney, Stones, Cancelo
    Bruno (v), Son, KDB (c), Neto
    Wilson, Lacazette, Kane

    Subs (Areola, Smith Rowe, Clark, Ampadu)

    Maybe a newbie question here but if you cant field a full team are you deducted points? (ie -8 for 10 players)

    I only have 5 players eligible for this weeks games.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,660 ✭✭✭ ScummyMan

    De Gea
    Cancelo Dier Tierney Saiss
    KDB(c) Bruno Son Gundogan
    Lacazette Kane

    On free hit, I have been making and reversing the same three transfers all day but think I’ve settled on this.

    No you are not punished for fielding less than 11 players.

    You can field 1 player, if you like, and receive his points.

    With only 5 players playing would you not use the free hit chip ?

    I’d never go with 5 players so it’s stick or twist, I’ve made 4 transfers to field 11, I’ll then use wc next week, I’m hoping my strategy pays off over the two weeks

    Gambling on saving my free hit. Going with 8/9 depending on Taylor.

    No keeper. Son, Kane (C), Bruno, Martial, KDB (vc), Cancelo, Stones, Mitchell, Taylor (maybe)

    cheers for that
    I had 7 players until DCL and El Ghazi weren't playing
    My thinking was to use the free hit next week when there are 16 games rather than maximizing my what I can get from these games with lower number of teams/pool of players if that makes sense.
    take the hit this week in terms of points; take the free hit next week and maximize what I can get from GW19....

    Free Hit already used earlier in season - wildcard next week.

    Is Sterling worth the risk?

    Does anyone think Andy Carroll will get a start? He looked decent against Arsenal, scored last week...

    If you’re wildcard Next week would you not do it this week to set up for gw 18, 19 and beyond?
    Might be tight for time on planning though!

    Surely if you only have 6 with a game this week, you have a rake of players with Double Gameweeks next week without using the FH, no?

    Free hit activated, expecting nothing short of 80 points, sure what can go wrong.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,134 ✭✭✭ Dubh Geannain

    Free Hit:

    DDG
    Alderweirald, Holding, Stones
    KDB, Son, Bruno, Saka, Zaha
    Kane, Wilson

    Subs: Sanchez, Fabio Silva, Clark, Mitchell

    I don't trust Pep

    Also I chickened out of a non playing bench

    De Gea
    Stones Tierney Reguilon Saiss
    KDB (c) Bruno Son Gundogan
    Lacazette Kane

    4.0 Saka Fernandez Brewster

    Definitely logging out now :pac:

    The FPL site seems to be struggling. Looks like the last minute tinkering is out the window


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,163 ✭✭✭✭ mdwexford

    Free hit team

    De Gea
    Cancelo, Stones, Dier, Maguire
    Saka, Kdb, Son, Bruno
    Kane, Laca

    Any thoughts on changing Stones, Son and Laca to Bellerin, Sterling and Wilson.

    Looks worse to me but having Sterling and Kdb v Brighton would be sweet, if they both start which is a risk......

    Anything to be said for Sterling?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,453 ✭✭✭ Cartman78

    Copied from the other thread...

    Pretty much there now on my underwhelming vanilla template FH team

    Darlowbravka

    Saiss | Dias | Dier | Tierney

    KDB (C) | Bruno | Gundogan | Son

    Lacazette | Kane

    Subs: Saka | Mitchell | Brewster

    Gundog seems to be my only differential....need big returns from him and KDB (marginal captain choice ahead of Kane) to make this a good GW

    If I knew he was definitely starting I’d make room to get him in.

    11.4 mill sitting on the bench would hurt too much this week.

    Villa-Spurs off and DCL, CTaylor injured ruined my plans of not using any chips so on a free hit.

    Lloris (Peacock-Farrell)
    AWB Tierney Dias (Fernandez, Lowton)
    KDB(C) Bruno Son Gundogan (Smith Rowe)
    Kane Wilson Lacazette

    Would like a sub goalie but can't have everything :)

    Lowton to Mitchell
    Or
    Dias to Stones

    gives funds to upgrade sub keeper

    Peacock-Farrell is flagged so Norris might be on Burnley bench?
