Gameweek 11 & International Break Roundup
Whilst we look at the Gameweek 12 preview, it’s important to keep a close eye on how Fantasy Premier League assets have performed over the International Break. This includes studying attacking returns, minutes and injury concerns. This time around there seems to be more injuries than ever before. FPL Herald have done a full roundup of all the action.

It’s been almost two full weeks since the drama of Gameweek 11. Many fantasy managers need their memories jogging on the key talking points and possible players who ought to be transferred in this week. FPL Guidance has yet another excellent summary with suggested transfer candidates.

Tom Bayes has also given his reviews from last weeks games and highlights players that look like potential FPL gems.
It’s a classic sword or shield this week between Lukaku and Kane. One is out of form and the other has been struggling for injury in recent weeks but has an impeccble record against his opponents. Salah is in the mix as well! It’s certainly got the community talking on Twitter.

Lukaku or Kane for captain?
For me it’s Kane.
Sure Lukaku might get a goal or an assist. 5-7 points with the recent bonus he’s earning.
I don’t mind risking 3-5 points if Kane blanks. I’ve lost so many double digit hauls the week after he blanks.
Time to rectify this.#FPL

There’s always something new to be considered in terms of FPL captains. Defenders have an unusual habit of stealing the biggest hauls each week, so would you consider putting the armband elsewhere?
Hands up if you normally just pick a forward when it comes to captain? ??Maybe you need to think again. 11 weeks in and only 3 times has a forward been the top scoring player of the week. #FPL pic.twitter.com/mRhEsxJ2xt

There’s favourable fixtures on the horizon for many FPL sides, some teams are more popular than others. Chelsea probably have the most enticing run of fixtures.

Azpilicueta now £6.8M almost the same price as Marcos Alonso
A close look at chances created & big chances created shows why Azpilicueta has more assists.
Can he keep it up?#FPL #CFC #Azpilicueta #Alonso pic.twitter.com/sbY74y1adm

Bournemouth and Everton haven’t had the best of starts, but their good run of fixtures shouldn’t be discounted.
Are you looking to dump or bring in Bournemouth or Everton assets?
Those 2 teams are projected to have excellent defence potential in the next 4 GW's
3 home games in the next 4 for The Cherries ?
