Alon has not used any of his Chips
At last! After 2 bad gameweeks which started with the FPL website crashing just before the GW19 deadline (still hurts a lot but I’m getting over it), I got a green arrow again and started climbing back. Sitting on 23K and holding all chips is quite a good position to be in.
This gameweek was a success for me mainly thanks to the transfers I had made: James and Bilva out, Coufal and Bowen (c) in (-4). Feels so good to nail that down.
FPL is played so differently this season. Not too much long-term planning as games are cancelled and players are missing on a regular basis. I find myself thinking of only the next 1-2 gameweeks unlike previous seasons when I was planning 5-6 gameweeks ahead at least.
This double gameweek doesn’t make me feel like free hitting or taking too many hits. There are very few assets I find interest in, one of whom is Ronaldo whose fitness is questionable. I do have a big problem however – I don’t own any captainable player. For me the two possibilities are Ronaldo or Kane, so my transfers will definitely involve one of them.
The players I consider attractive for this gameweek are Ronaldo, Kane, Maddison (until the game postponed), Lucas Moura, Dennis.
I have 2 possible routes:
Antonio => Kane. This move will enable me to keep Salah who soon returns from Afcon and it also doesn’t require a hit. On the other hand, it means I will be left with no bench players this week (assuming Livramento is still unfit) which could become a problem with the uncertainty surrounding us at the moment.
Salah, Scarlett => Moura, Kane/Ronaldo (-4). This move will produce 2 decent bench players for me (and some headache too 😀), but will require a hit and probably another hit to bring Salah back in 2 gameweeks.
I usually prefer to avoid hits unless necessary, but I already suffered from my short bench in recent weeks and I may well need it this week. Is it worth an 8 point hit (including a hit to bring Salah back)? Really close imo. Another factor is that the non-hit option enables me to get Kane but not Ronaldo, and I’m still not sure which one of them I prefer.
Another option I have in the back of my mind is just doing Scarlett => Dennis (c). But it will probably only happen if Ronaldo and Kane are likely to miss out. There is some question over whether Arsenal will ask for the Arsenal V Spurs game to be called off
Ronaldo or Kane. The one I end up with.
For what it’s worth, I think Dennis is a very good differential, but I generally like going with premium players for captaincy.
