I’m going 3-5-2

My tactic is to have an absolutely stacked midfield (majority of top-scoring players have been midfielders, rather than strikers, in recent seasons): I’ll play 5 across midfield most weeks. Then 1 superstar striker with 1 decent back-up, and 1 bargain basement (only ever play 2 upfront). 1 excellent defender and 4 regulars at ‘lesser’ teams who I’ll rotate according to fixtures, and there is literally no point in spending big on a 'keeper when you look at the points differential in that position for regular starters.

You just watch me come somewhere in the top 1.5m


#906

It’s against Burnley pal


#907

Bit concerned that playing Barnes and Carroll is a bad idea but hope that one of those defenders will get decent gametime and become nailed on to start. Probably play my Wildcard week 3 anyhow…


#908

He’s gonna get a hat-trick and keep Sanchez out of the side until 2019.


#909

This is quite a nice side. Might copy this:

55


#910

JWP?
John wright phillips?

Thanks for the advice, I’ll have a think about it!

I’m a bit wary about there being no Chelsea representation either but:

  • The defenders cost a lot
  • Generally speaking defensive midfielders don’t seem like the way to go
  • I’m not convinced Willian will do better than Salah/Alli (and to a lesser extent Mkhitaryan)
  • Hazard is well pricey plus a bit of a gamble considering his form after the last time Chelsea won the league.
  • Morata is a bit too much of a risk, would rather wait to see how he settles

#912

Ward-Prowse I’m guessing? Wouldn’t go for them myself mind.


#913

i’ve had a lot of coffee today.


#914

Willian is cheaper than all three of those players and seems nailed on to be involved high up the pitch for Chelsea at the start of the season with Hazard and maybe Pedro out. He’s a good pick for the money for at least the first gameweek.


#915

Why is literally no-one putting Ageuro in BTW? Same price as Lukaku and usually a default pick. I know he was a bit more hit and miss last year but he ended the season well and now has support around him.


#916

reckon him and jesus are going to play about the same amount and score about the same amount, Jesus is cheaper so he gets picked


#917

came below Joshua King and Firmino last season despite being considerably more expensive. Think its been the same every year I’ve played fantasy tbh. Looks great for a few months and then completely goes off the boil/gets injured.


#918

I’ve gone with Aguero. Think both him and Jesus will score well but won’t he be up front with Jesus on the wing?
Happy to pay the extra if thats the case


#919

Ederson

Mendy
Stones
Walker

Sane
Silva
De Bruyne
Silva
Sterling

Jesus
Aguero


#920

Pretty happy.


#921

Ah interesting, cheers may reconsider.
That team does not look like it can defend.


#922

That’s me pulling stuff out of arse, but they will be stupidly attacking and played jesus and kun a few times when they were both fit


#923

Pointless banal trivia - how many different sides are represented in your ff squad? I only have 8.
3 from both Spurs & Scum, 2 from Arsenal & Bmouth, then 1 from Stoke, Citeh, Burnley, S’Hampton. Seems shallow.


#924

12 clubs, and I don’t have a Chelsea player which seems a bit of a gap
