Not sure whether to wildcard or not.

Already taken a 4 point hit before the DCL news.

Think I would probably only be looking to change 4 or 5 players so not sure its worth it... equally, I'm 50+ points off the pace in the leagues I care about so wary of falling too far behind.

Team:

Sanchez & Steele

White, Shaw, Dias, Trent, Amartey

Jota, Salah, Harrison, Benrahma, Gilmour

Ronaldo, DCL, Toney


Would probably switch Harrison, Benrahma, DCL & Toney for Torres, Gray, Bamford and Pukki while changing Amartey & Gilmour for different bench players.

What say you RAWK? Worth it or not?

I'd say leave your wildcard for now. You can play 4-4-2 this week and probably get away with it, I took had Antonio and DCL and have taken out DCL for Bamford this week. Think I've heard Bamford may have fitness issues?!

Problem is you're wildcarding for Gray, Pukki, Torres and Bamford. You can get to Gray easy, Pukki isn't nailed on to start, neither is Torres. I'd just do a -8 and save your wildcard personally as it will be more powerful later on.

Guy i play football with Sundays is 100th in the world, the jammy bastard. Bit of a lead in the mini league fair to say. I'm 76 points behind him after 4 games. He tripled Mo gw 1 for 51 points got 135 points for 66th overall out of the chute.

Sigh...Im here spending points like a drunker sailor just to avoid price losses 12 in the last 2 weeks and ive still taken drops on harrison and bamford anyway.


Damn that Mane's good!

Got Lukaku and Jota in for Wilson and Fernandes. Probably a week or 2 early on when I would have liked to get Lukaku but no idea when Wilson is back and didnít want to get prices out of any moves in a few weeks time.

So I finally gave into my wildcard temptation. Here is what I have ended up with as of now -

GK: Sanchez, Foster (sub)
DEF: James, Cancelo, TAA, Marcal, Ayling
MID: Salah, Raphinha, Torres, Kovacic, Bissouma
FWD: Ronaldo, Auba, Cucho

Marcal and Ayling have a good run of games in the next 5 GWs. TAA will be there for the season.

Chelsea players James and Kovacic ahve 2 tough GWs coming but then a great set of fixtures. Will alternate between James/Kovacic and Cancelo/Torres depending on their fixtures

Salah, Raphinha, Bissouma are long-term members

Have selected Auba because Arsenal have very favourable fixtures coming up. Can laways switch back to DCL / Antonio if it doesn't work out.

Planning to keep he who fannies about and dives around for next 2 GWs and then switch over to Lukaku.

Not trying to hoard mroe than 3 premiums, feel like this teams gives good stability going forward till GW10 at least

Antonio out Jimenez in for me, but I'll probably bring Antonio back in a week or two.

I've kept Antonio but brought Jimenez in for Wilson, whom we know from experience tends to stay out longer than expected. I've no idea how Jimenez is playing IRL but his fantasy scores are terrible (6 pts from 4 games); however, the fact that he's played every minute and their easier upcoming fixtures make me hope he's due.

Sold Bowen and Harrison for Harvey Barnes and Smith-Rowe. Slight bit of deckchair shuffling maybe but hoping Barnes is about to explode into life.

After a lot of deliberation I've gone with the WC this week.

Out > In

Martinez > Ramsdale
Shaw > Marcal
Coufal > Duffy
Tanganga > Livramento
Gilmour > Sissoko
Greenwood > Torres
Soucek > Traore
Dallas > Jota
Maupay > Bamford

Squad now looks like:

GK: Ramsdale, Sanchez
DF: Trent, Marcal, White, Duffy, Livramento
MF: Salah, Jota, Torres, Traore, Sissoko
FW: Ronaldo, Antonio, Bamford

Aiming to get Lukaku in in a couple of GW's time (possibly switch for Ronaldo, we'll see), and will keep an eye on Torres and Jota depending on gametime. A few other options around that price bracket if a switch is needed there.

Overall I'd say Wolves, Leeds and Arsenal's upcoming fixtures look pretty favourable and worth a look.

Now watch this all go belly up...

Feels like I had a shit day with several players failing to fire and Trent + Pickford + Harrison all late outs, but captain Mo + Toney + Dias have put me in the top 1M for the week despite accounting for all but 5 of my points. Funny how things work out.

Even better than me, well done! I jumped a lot too. Can only imagine tons have loads of United (and Chelsea or Spurs) players so thereís lots of teams out there with about 5 or 6 players left to play?

I captained Jota as a differential so you can all blame me for that miss from a yard. Awful FF season for me so far, usually Iím always top 200k but this season Iím around the 2 million mark. Defensively Iím picking up 3 ou of 4 clean sheets but midfield and strikers are just not returning!

Had Saka (6 points) and Rudiger (14 points) on the bench to come in for Trent and Matip! Should be breaking into the RAWK top 10 and the World top 5k I reckon when it's all worked out.

61 after wildcarding this week. Not great, that.

My Wolves gamble backfired pretty spectacularly, as did my decision to go with Sanchez over Ramsdale.

I've had a really average few weeks. Struggling to get into the 60s or above.

I've got a decent team on paper with Salah, Ronaldo, Antonio, Bamford, Benhrama as my 'safe' players.

Gray and Grealish are my differential players. Grealish has been pretty disappointing, expected a bit more but then City haven't been the usual attacking threat yet.

I think it's defensively where I'm losing ground now. I have Ayling, Matip, Lowton, Shaw and Tanganga with Mendy/Sanchez as my keepers.

Tanganga obviously got sent off last week so hoping he gets back in the spurs side. Matip is now a doubt whether he starts. The others all start but haven't haven't picking up many clean sheets.

I started the season with Trent and Rudiger but had to go a bit cheaper to get the attackers I wanted in.

I read this morning that he was "likely to return" against Watford next week. If there's a reasonable chance of that it's enough to keep him, given their upcoming fixtures as well.

Low scores all round this week. My defence is abysmal at the minute. Getting rid of Shaw and Grealish next week. Hope Bamford is back.

Every week I've had either a red card or injury, sometimes multiple. Just want one week where all my players start and don't get sent off!

I've still got Amarty, but that's because I'm trying to hold my wildcard as long as possible otherwise he'd be well out.

I'm on 49 this week with a -4 hit to get Lukaku & Sarr in and Sanchez to play tomorrow. Lukaku is 11.7 already- there must be something funny going on at FPL towers with the price rises. Think loads of people will take point hits this week to try and get Ronaldo & Lukaku in their teams.

Is anyone elseís subs bench consistently getting over 15pts every week? Iíve left Toney on the bench twice and always the defender I donít choose (Walker this week) getting a clean sheet. Frustrating. I havenít got my captain right since week 1 but at least is cursed Ronaldo.
