Brooks

Merry Christmas everyone. Great time for catching up with family and friends and deliberating over fantasy football subs...

I couldn't see a thread about this chap, but his 2 goals yesterday must put him on people's radar. 60 points from 15 starts, 5 goals, 2 KCs. Looks like a great enabler to me. Am I missing something?

36 views but no responses in the first hour. I'm guessing this is thinking time?

He was out recently (injury?), was thought Stanislas may replace him when fit and now they have terrible fixtures for a bit.

Will be a great pick when fixtures clear up though.

Personally think there are better options as enablers at similar price ie Doherty,Pereyra and Maddison all at better points per game.Also sometimes rotates with Fraser.

Doesn't rotate with Fraser - Fraser is first choice as has been Brooks, though Stanislas largely injured. Both may get rested occasionally but that's different.

I want to bring Kane in and am looking to offload Laporte and Sterling to do it (+0.2m). As a Liverpool fan, I am very happy that those 2 City players have been misfiring since I brought them in 3 weeks ago, but my fantasy team is not doing so well out of the deal, so thinking it's time to ditch. Everyone else in my team is doing a job for me so don't think they deserve the heave-ho as much as those 2. Anyway, I can afford Brooks + Kane (but can't afford Kane plus any of the other options above) so unless anyone can talk me out of it in the next 20 mins I'm pulling the trigger.

Well if it’s any consolation I got rid of Laporte, by using Brooks as a means of affording Kane.

You should have seen my face when I checked my team late yesterday and realised I had him in there.

Not sure if he’s a good long term bet, but he’s made me happy thus weekend.

Agree. With Spurs & Man Utd next other teams such as West Ham (Snodgrass) have better enablers.

Brooks has been on my radar for a while but haven’t been able to slot him as happy with my present enablers like Maddison, Doherty and others mentioned above. Recently had a slot available in my second best team but went for Snodgrass instead as West Ham had better fixtures than Bournemouth and Snodgrass takes set pieces.

Brooks is a good enabler but he is not what I call the ultimate or must have enabler. His price is decent at 2.6 but if he was say 2.1 he would be in a lot more teams. Doucoure last season at that kinda of price was great also Steve Cook at that similar price the season before. Camarasa looks decent at 2.6 as well (on penalties and good chance of KCs) plus keeping on a eye on Redmond at 2.8 as Southampton show signs of improvement under new manager. Maybe Brooks gets overlooked in the crowd just as Wilson has.

Cheers for the comments all. I went for Brooks and unlike some others, at least he is in the starting line up today so we will see if he can get me off to a good start. Like I said the other day, I didn't have a lot of options on who to bring in with Kane so i was very very happy after the Everton match no matter what. Hopefully the good feelings continue today...
