Gameweek seven of the Fantasy Premier League season has thrown up a bunch of problems for teams across the world.
Injuries galore and a GW6 average of just 43 has left many managers questioning their options in the final week before the next international break.
Lucky for you, we'll provide all that you need to know about the best players to get in your team, some tips about your injured players and who to captain this week. Let's get straight into it.
Chelsea have had a bad couple of games. Defeat to Manchester City followed by a loss to Juventus in the UEFA Champions League has made some unsure of what they will be capable of producing going forward. Make no mistake, this Chelsea team are good. They remain title contenders. Enter Antonio Rudiger: a guarantee to start at the back, at home to 16th place Southampton who have scored just four goals this season and fixture proof going forward with five consecutive games which have a fixture difficulty rating of just two. Get him in your team.
Price: £5.7m, points: 34, stats: 1G, 4CS
The man who can't stop scoring. Antonio has already seen his price increase by 0.5, he has five goals and four assists already this season and comes up against Brentford at home. 43.7% of players have him in already and despite having Everton (a), Spurs (h), Aston Villa (a) and Liverpool (h) after this gameweek, you can continue to expect the Jamaican international to keep racking up the points.
Price: £8m, points: 47, stats: 5G, 4A
The Leicester forward had a gameweek six that could only be described as wild. An own goal, two actual goals and three bonus! Ending with 11 points, Vardy remains the second highest scoring forward and faces a Crystal Palace side struggling for form. He is still just owned by 12.8% of players, so makes for a solid differential.
Price: £10.4m, points: 40, stats: 5G, 1A
Why I still don't have Raphinha in my team, I have no idea. He has three goals already this season, has been cleared fit by Marcelo Bielsa to play this weekend and has scored in each of his last two games. At just £6.5m in midfield, with Patrick Bamford, Leeds will be looking to Raphinha for their attacking contributions. His next four fixtures are Watford (h), Southampton (a), Wolves (h) and Norwich (a). Now seems as good a time as any to bring in the Brazilian winger.
Price: £6.5m, points: 28, stats: 3G, 0A
Yes, Spurs are struggling. Really badly. However, the saying goes form is temporary but class is permanent - and Heung-min Son is class. While Harry Kane has failed to deliver any points this season up front, Son remains the man who can provide some light at the end of the tunnel for Spurs. Three goals this season and with a couple of favourable fixtures approaching in Aston Villa (h) and Newcastle United (a) mean the South Korean star could be on for a haul or two.
Price: £10m, points: 32, stats: 3G, 0A
Other players to consider signing: Rodrigo, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Edouard Mendy, Raul Jimenez, Ismaila Sarr, Chris Wood.
Cristiano Ronaldo at home to an Everton side who have kept just one clean sheet this season looks a good option, however Romelu Lukaku at home to Southampton will be the most picked this weekend. Michail Antonio and Jamie Vardy are other good options to consider. Remember, at this stage of the season, you want to pick safe with your captains. Don't fall behind in your mini leagues just yet, take risks at a later stage when you need to.
With Trent, hold. He may be injured for a couple of weeks but that should only mean one gameweek with the international break allowing him time to recover. With your other injured players, assess how bad they are and keep an eye on team news, the FPL subreddit is really useful in finding out 'ITK' news quicker than the millions who play the game.
