Six questions fantasy football managers are asking themselves, including 'should I bring in Kane?'

With the Premier League underway and West Ham top of the table, fantasy football managers have been left scratching their heads over these six questions.

It's already that time of the season where we look back at our original squads and wonder what the hell we were thinking.

Why did I choose a Norwich defender? What was I thinking benching Antonio? Whose idea was that lame team name? Hindsight is a cruel thing in fantasy sports, and this won't be the last time you're left kicking yourself this season.

Not many would have anticipated West Ham leading the league, even if only after two matches, and it's only added to the confusion we face when plotting transfers.

So, in an attempt to focus your mind, Planet Sport answers some of the most pressing fantasy questions.

Is Harry Kane now worth considering?

After bagging the league's highest goals and assists last season, it was a no-brainer to include Harry Kane in your fantasy team this season.

Well, that was until he stated his desire to leave Tottenham over the summer and then didn't turn up to pre-season training.

As a result, Kane didn't feature at all in Tottenham's league opener against Manchester City - the club he seemed hell-bent on moving to.

It seemed to all but confirm that Kane wasn't part of Nuno Espirito Santo's short-term plans, but the England captain made a brief cameo in their latest clash against Wolves, before releasing a statement this week insisting that he would be staying in North London for the rest of the season.

With the Manchester City rumours now rubbished, and Tottenham in good form, suddenly the appeal of Harry Kane in fantasy football has come flooding back.

After replacing Son Heung-Min with 18 minutes to go, Kane left empty handed against Wolves with just a yellow card to his name. But now with his future settled, could he return to his flying form of last season?

Well, even if the Englishman has found his way back into Nuno's good books, transferring him in will set you back a sweet £12.3million, and despite favourable fixtures against Watford and Crystal Palace on the horizon, we think it may be worth playing the waiting game with Kane for now.

It still remains to be seen whether Nuno is willing to immediately forgive Kane's antics and place him back in the starting lineup, and even then, it's unclear whether he is truly focused on Spurs right now.

Historically, Kane has been a notoriously slow starter in the league anyway, and with a hugely taxing transfer saga still fresh on his mind, Kane may yet be a shadow of his former self - it's a no from us.

When will Brighton's bubble burst?

Alongside West Ham, Brighton have been the surprise package of the early weeks of the season, managing back-to-back wins.

The Seagulls finished 16th last season but were often extremely unlucky in games, with a clinical finisher all that stood between themselves and a much better points tally.

Despite not signing any attacking reinforcements over the summer, Graham Potter's faith in Neal Maupay appears to be paying off, at least for now anyway.

The Frenchman got off to a good start in Brighton's opener against Burnley, netting in the second half to level the scores before Alexis MacAllister's late winner.

He added to his tally this weekend in Brighton's clash with Watford, securing the three points with a tidy finish minutes before half-time.

Admittedly Burnley and Watford are two of the easier fixtures in Brighton's calendar, but with Everton, Brentford, Leicester and Crystal Palace up next, Potter's side may well fancy themselves to continue their momentum.

Maupay was replaced at the interval by Aaron Connolly after what looked like a shoulder injury, but reports suggest Brighton are confident he will be fit for the Everton clash.

At just £6.5million, Maupay is an attractive propostion for managers looking to fund reinforcements in other positions.

Additionally, with every chance the Seagulls can continue to soar, team-mates Pascal Gross' £6million price tag makes him an appealing option.

Is Jack Grealish really silencing his haters?

Jack Grealish's £100million move to Manchester City has certainly been one of the biggest talking points this summer, but has the former Aston Villa man hit the ground running at the Etihad Stadium?

After opening his scoring account in a 5-0 win against Norwich this weekend the signs are that Grealish is settling in well with the defending Premier League champions.

But on closer inspection, Grealish's goal did contain a huge slice of luck after the ball seemed to simply bounce off him and into the net. While his fantasy owners won't care one bit, we're still not convinced by the new man.

Furthermore, City's new No. 10 was sacrificed in the second half for Riyad Mahrez, whose goal in the dying embers makes a case for him to start next up.

Guardiola is famed for his player rotation and without knowing whether Grealish's place in the line-up is secured, it's difficult to justify his £8million price tag.

City also face Arsenal next weekend before visiting Leicester City on September 11. While they will still be expected to win, it's hardly going to be 5-0 thrashings like against Norwich, and Grealish may struggle to replicate his point-scoring against tougher opposition.

Is Romelu Lukaku the real deal?

After scoring 15 minutes into his Chelsea debut, or… second debut, Roy Keane claimed that Romelu Lukaku is "the real deal", but is the Belgian worth adding to your squad?

The simple answer is yes. He looks a much more improved version of himself since his Manchester United days, and at the spearhead of Chelsea's attack, Lukaku could bring the best out of their other attacking options.

The 28-year-old has pointed towards his improved maturity since his time at Inter Milan, claiming he now has much more experience than his previous stint in the Premier League.

And, to be fair, he looked very impressive against Arsenal this weekend, and was unlucky to only come away with just one goal.

Lukaku's physicality and ability to hold the ball up proved too much for Arsenal's defence, and with a newly improved first touch, he featured regularly in Chelsea's build-up play.

However, at £11.5million, transferring in Lukaku is an extremely expensive risk and will no doubt mean a tricky reshuffle when it comes to bringing your squad in under budget. With the much more difficult task of Liverpool up next for the Belgian, it may be worth waiting to see how he fares at Anfield first.

After struggling against Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk during his Manchester United spell, Lukaku will have the perfect chance to silence his critics when he faces the duo on Saturday.

If Lukaku is on your fantasy radar - and he should be - then a weekend watching brief is probably the way to go.

Will Tottenham's defence remain watertight?

After a managerial merry-go-round in the summer as well as Harry Kane's dramatic transfer saga, the atmosphere around the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium didn't seem too positive heading into the new season.

However, Nuno enjoyed a successful start to his reign in north London even without Kane, managing a surprise 1-0 win over Manchester City courtesy of Son's second-half strike.

Spurs replicated the scoreline in this weekend's clash against Wolves, with Alli's penalty proving to be the difference despite Wolves registering 25 shots.

But even after facing 25 shots away from home, Nuno's side now have two clean sheets to their name, making Tottenham's defenders appealing assets.

If you weren't already interested, Spurs named an identical back line for both games, leaving us feeling pretty confident over their chances of playing again next week.

And, with games against Watford and Crystal Palace up next, Tottenham defenders are seriously worth considering this week.

Japhet Tanganga, Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez are all available at £4.5million, whereas Sergio Reguilion will cost you £5million for his services. But with the potential of goals and assists, for an extra £0.5million the Spaniard offers the best option going forward.

They may not offer the best long-term solution in defence, as Tottenham face a difficult run against Chelsea, Arsenal and Aston Villa after their clash against Palace. However, it doesn't get much harder than shutting out Manchester City and Spurs have done that already.

Are Leeds United suffering second-season syndrome?

After finally rejoining the Premier League last season, Leeds United ended up being the dark horses of 2020/21, managing a ninth-placed finish.

Stuart Dallas, Patrick Bamford and Raphinha stood out as the star performers in Marcelo Bielsa's side, and they have become Fantasy Premier League fixtures heading into this season.

However, questions have been asked after a 5-1 thrashing at Manchester United was followed by a frenetic 2-2 draw with Everton.

However, we see little reason to worry...yet.

The Yorkshire side are no strangers to high-scoring games and while the season is still in its infancy they'll go again next week and play exactly the same way.

Some may call it reckless, some will call it entertaining. But what it does guarantee is goals, and that equates to some juicy fantasy points.

Next up for The Whites is a trip to Burnley, a team they did the double over last season, including a 4-0 thrashing at Turf Moor.

After getting off the mark against Everton, Raphinha looks set to enjoy the season as Leeds' No. 10.

The £6.5million midfielder could well bolster his scoring tally against the Clarets on Sunday afternoon.

Just stay clear of his team-mates in defence.
