SIF Benteke vs. IF Lukaku

Guys, what gives. By all practical purposes Benteke looks the better card. Yet I just saw one go unsold for 134K.

I just played probably about 15 WL games with Benteke. Not impressed. Had 4 goals, 3 with his head. He is unreal with his head, Ill give him that. But I couldnt get him to score with his boots. It seems that his price tag would indicate that I am not the only one who has been underwhelmed by Benteke.

Lukaku seems to go over 300K.

What gives? Anybody else played with SIF Benteke and left scratching your head?

Cheers.

    Sif Benteke is amazing, scoring a lot and none with his head lol I don't cross at all though.

    It is highly possible it is just a me thing.

    But he is 200K less than my boy Romelu. Why is that? Stats are similar, and Id say Benteke's card has more "sex appeal" if you will.

    Seems to me the lesser price may mean others struggle with him.

    Because Lukaku was used a lot for POTM hazard so there's less of him on the market.

    As stated price difference is irrelevant because of the hazard sbc.

    I haven't used lukaku, but 2if Benteke is amazing he has 11 goals and 6 assists in 12 games. I put catalyst on him and he is great at making runs in behind, shrugging off defenders and finishing with either foot.

    If I was you I'd but Benteke try him for 10-15 games and sell if you don't like him. You're not going to lose much if any.

    Seems like IF Lukaku would not be the way to go for that SBC. Seems like there would be less expensive routes, but that could be a factor.

    I couldn't stand any version of Benteke this year

    Lukaku however is great, even though he missed more chances than big ben for me I found it much earier to get him into positions where he could make a difference

    Personally i attribute it to the fact Rome has 'tries to beat defensive line' trait so plays a little further up the field than Benteke but maybe I'm just looking for excuses lol
