FanDuel

FanDuel Focus – Gameweek 38

It’s time for our final FanDuel article of the season as we visit our partner game to consider the various contests on offer and also propose an XI for the last day of the campaign.

There’s only one window to enter teams, with all ten fixtures running simultaneously on Sunday. The deadline is at the 3pm kick-offs.

To add a little last-day spice, we’ve also set up a ‘Beat the Scout’ contest for the window, giving you the chance to take on a combined Mark and Jonty XI for a shot at £50 in cash.

The contest is for FanDuel newcomers and veterans alike. For FanDuel first-timers, simply register and deposit funds and you can have a crack at besting Mark and Jonty’s combined team. Vets, meanwhile, just need to follow the link and sort out their Scout-busting team.

Everyone who surpasses Mark and Jonty’s score will be entered into a draw to win £50 in cash – that’s cash, not credit.

For newcomers to FanDuel, check out our pre-season strategy guide, which provides some hints on which types of players to target.

My Strongest XI

Joel Pereira (£4m)

John Terry (£7.4m)

Adrian Mariappa (£7.8m)

Callum Chambers (£8.5m)

Scott McTominay (£5m)

Luka Milivojevic (£7.8m)

Cesc Fabregas (£11.5m)

Mesut Ozil (£12.6m)

Daniel Sturridge (£10.2m)

Gabriel Jesus (£11.8m)

Harry Kane (£13.4m)

The Key Picks

We couldn’t overlook Manchester United’s third-choice keeper Joel Pereira following Jose Mourinho’s strong hint that the youngster is set to for his debut against Crystal Palace. The young Portuguese’s bargain price-tag alone makes him a tempting pick, but he should also pick up a few saves as he attempts to deny Christian Benteke. Furthermore, a clean sheet can’t be ruled out – United have conceded 12 goals in 18 matches at Old Trafford. Only Spurs have a better defensive record at home (9 goals from 19).

John Terry notched the opener at Watford for Chelsea – reminding us of his goal threat and helping him score an impressive 29.25 FanDuel points with 5 CBIs also registered. We’re expecting the centre-back to turn in a similar performance as the champions host Sunderland in a match set to be his last for the club. He’ll likely be pinpointed at set-pieces to deliver a parting goal and, promisingly, the Black Cats have conceded the most headed attempts (60 in 18) on road trips this term.

The Watford back-line has been hit by a host of injuries as they welcome an in-form Manchester City attack to Vicarage Road. Adrian Mariappa is all but guaranteed to face the onslaught and should be busy picking up defensive FanDuel points on Sunday. The centre-back’s 67 clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBIs) and 18 tackles have produced a healthy 20-point average over his last six outings.

We’ve spent big on our third and final defender. Middlesbrough are in store for a tough afternoon at Liverpool with the home side knowing a win will confirm Champions League football next season. Calum Chambers is our pick from the Boro defence – he’s averaged over 10 CBIs and just under three tackles per match this campaign to accrue a 20.8 FanDuel point average.

Similar to our keeper, our first midfielder mainly makes the line-up as a Jose Mourinho budget buy. We don’t have much to go on for Man United’s Scott McTominay, although he did pick up an encouraging 8.25 FanDuel points in under ten minutes when he made a late cameo against Arsenal in Gameweek 36. At a cut-price 5m, the central midfielder acts as an ideal enabler to fit in big-hitters elsewhere.

Our next selection’s end-to-end role suits the FanDuel scoring matrix. Crystal Palace’s Luka Milivojevic netted a penalty to score 28.75 points in the 4-0 victory over Hull City last time out. The Serb has recorded 28 CBIs and 15 tackles over the last six matches to highlight his combativeness. He’s also drawn nine fouls over that period and spot-kick duties underline his threat going forward. An 18-point average over those six fixtures, and a reasonable price, should make him a worthwhile pick at Old Trafford.

Cesc Fabregas arrived from the bench against Watford to score the goal that ensured another win for Antonio Conte’s outfit. Considering he was rested for most of the encounter, it means the Spaniard looks an assured starter for their closing match with Sunderland and his recent influence promises more returns. The Blues midfielder has now tallied five assists and a pair of goals in his last seven starts, while a 41-point average in his previous six home appearances indicates he’s a sound pick in FanDuel against the basement dwellers.

Although we would have liked to fit in Alexis Sanchez as our Arsenal weapon of choice against Everton, Mesut Ozil’s performance last time out in the win over the Black Cats has convinced us to go for the midfielder. The German created 12 chances in the 2-0 win over David Moyes’ side to provide an assist and a 49.75-point FanDuel haul – enough to exceeded Sanchez’s 41.75 points despite the latter’s brace. Three goals and four assists in ten matches for Ozil demonstrates his improved output over the run-in and his creativity could be key to penetrating a stubborn Toffees rearguard in a must-win match for the Gunners.

It’s sensible to pick a differential or two in a FanDuel line-up and we’ve gone for Daniel Sturridge here. The Liverpool forward flourished and scored as part of a front two positioned ahead of a diamond formation against Southampton. He should have plenty of opportunities to net again – the Reds will throw waves of attacks at visitors Boro and the relegated side have conceded 11 goals in their last three away trips.

Gabriel Jesus continues to indicate he has a bright future under Pep Guardiola. A goal and assist in the 3-1 West Brom victory reflected his combined goal threat and playmaking skills. The Brazilian has notched six goals and served up three assists in seven Man City starts, averaging 35 FanDuel points per match. That makes him difficult to ignore for the trip to Watford – the Hornets have leaked eight goals in three outings.

Romelu Lukaku was leading the race for the Golden Boot, but after Harry Kane’s four-goal display at Leicester City the Spurs frontman has made his move. He’ll be keen to further the gap as Spurs roll up to Hull. The Tigers have only two clean sheets (conceding 28 goals in 18 matches) at the KCOM Stadium this term while the England forward now has 12 goals and four assists in eight starts. Over the last four weeks, Kane’s 24 goal attempts and 14 shots on target suggest his irrepressible form will continue to the season’s final whistle.

This Week’s Contests

The largest pot this weekend is again the Fan Favourite, which has £2500 in prize money and is £5 per entry. The top 120 placed line-ups will collect winnings, with £500 for first spot.

    Any ideas what to do with this bunch?

    https://cl.ly/381p251n3W2X

    1. Super Pav
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Poss Albrighton + Hazard > Coutinho + Fabregas?

      1. The_Colonel
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Similar position to me. Just not sure I can pull the trigger on selling Haz...

        1. Evasivo
          6 months, 27 days ago

          I'm to worried selling Haz, and actually think he'll be a good differential ghost gw

        2. Super Pav
          6 months, 27 days ago

          More I read into it the more I think he's not going to start/play.

          Especially this...
          http://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2017/05/19/fanduel-focus-gameweek-38/?hc_page=8#hc_comment_15737797

  2. Papaoutai
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Do you reckon Ake will play the last game ?

    1. DHWizzo
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Coin toss.

      I suspect the back 5 will be Moses, Terry, Luiz, Cahill, Alonso.

      1. RedArrows
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Surely Conte would not take Azpi's 100% record away though?

    2. The_Colonel
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I don't think so

  3. Team Hayemaker
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Will Hazard play? I have no idea whether to ship for Coutinho or not!!!!

    1. Irish Madridistæ ⭐
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Likely but still would

    2. DHWizzo
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Your guess is as good as anyone's. Conte impossible to guess right now.

      Given the rotation over the past couple weeks I think it is more likely than not that he will come in off the bench, but not start.

      My plan is to ship Hazard/JWP to Couts/Fabs for -4.

      1. tm370
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I'm thinking he won't - 4 starts in 13 games ahead of a cup final, and in a pointless game, would be madness imo. I think Willian and Pedro will start, or even a youngster.

        1. DHWizzo
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Agree

    3. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I've done that move. Hazard annoyed me in DGW so gets the chop!

  4. Cookie Kid
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 months, 27 days ago

    A) Alli > Coutinho
    Or
    B) Gabbi > Llorente ?

    1. Irish Madridistæ ⭐
      6 months, 27 days ago

      B

    2. DHWizzo
      6 months, 27 days ago

      A

      1. DHWizzo
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Have owned Llorente a couple times this year and he is so inconsistent and injury prone.

    3. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Both?

      But B if only one.

    4. The_Colonel
      6 months, 27 days ago

      A

      1. Cookie Kid
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Only got 1 FT. Not sure if either worth a hit

        Is Alli gonna get rested?

  5. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
    6 months, 27 days ago

    What was your final OR last year?
    What is your CURRENT OR?
    Where do you hope to be at the end of GW38?
    Are you happy with your OR at the moment?

    For me:

    Last year: 3,076
    Current: 7,966
    Hope to get higher than where I am now after this weekend.
    Yes, didn't expect to get into top 10k again.

    1. CostaCoffee
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Last year- 800000
      This year- 4310

      Usually don't keep playing past November but kept with it this year, hoping to keep top 5k

      1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Great stuff, great rank!

        1. CostaCoffee

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Last year 251k
      This year 5567

      Hoping for a green arrow, no matter how small, and yes I'm absolutely thrilled with my rank as my goal was top 100k (2nd season).

      1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Great stuff. I was really hoping to break 5k but can't see it now. Hoping someone like Zaha will be a good differential for me.

    3. BobBradleysOpportunity
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Last year: (this is my first season)

      4. BobBradleysOpportunity
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        had some very lucky breaks in recent weeks with son, kane, sanchez and city attack

    4. PKW - Mbokani Faso
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Last year: 3,154
      Current: 52,864

      Bit annoying as up to this season my rank had been constantly improving since I started in 2011/12. Hoping for top 45k finish, ie top 1% of players

    5. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I did not play seriously last season and left halfway
      so 2013/14 rank : 240 K
      192 K
      150 K hopefully
      Yes,and all the credit goes to FFS and the scoutcast team!

    6. Cypress Chill
      6 months, 27 days ago

      LY:374k
      Now:28k
      Hope to finish in the first 25k.
      Hoped for something better but can't complain.

      1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Great improvement on last year

    7. The_Colonel
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Last year: 4,441
      Current: 1,888
      Still have faint dreams of a top 1k finish (~20 points off though)
      Overall happy but I have made silly errors in judgement over the last few weeks which has probably cost me that top 1k. E.g. not trusting Bavies would play

      1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Great rank last year, even better this year!

        1. The_Colonel
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Thanks very much, likewise. Season before was 472. All years before that terrible though!
          I'm hoping that my triple captain chip can drag me into the top 1k

          1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
            6 months, 27 days ago

            Definitely! Who you putting it on?

            1. The_Colonel
              6 months, 27 days ago

              Either Sanchez or Coutinho if I get him in. Depends on what my priority is, top 1k or defend my 20 point ML lead (no money involved) where 2nd place will prob cpt Sanchez

    8. XabiAlonso
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Last year 662
      This year 61000
      Inside top 60000 about all I can hope for

      It's my first proper season so I don't know whether I should be Happy with this rank or not.

      1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Definitely! The first few seasons I played FPL I was in the hundreds of thousands for ages. Only last year started to see the light!

      Last year: 2,256

      Sneak into top 10k for fifth season in a row 😎
      Yes, incredibly, considering I was 58k two weeks ago - 111pts (36) & 174pts (37)

      1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Top 10k finish easily! Got any nice differentials?

        1. Jafooli

      6 months, 27 days ago

      6k
      48k
      anthing that means I gain 5 points on ML leader
      Mixed feelings, spent half the year in OR >1m so glad to have a slightly. But, then again worst rank for a while and the idea is to improve.

    13. Going Home
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Last year 55k
      Current 35k
      Hope no lower than 35k

        Going in the right direction! Next year top 10k?

        1. Going Home
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Cheers - would be good. Been playing for eight years but always 100k-250k (trigger happy with transfers, ends up costing me)

          1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
            6 months, 27 days ago

            Yeah that is definitely a key thing. I've only taken 6 hits all year!

      Last year: this is my firs year
      Current: 47k
      Hope to stay in a top50k, I think thats a good first season.

      Did some horrible moves at the beginning, I gues I even transfered in PVA for a hit and at the weekend decided to bench him. 😀 but around gw5 I found out about this page and big thanks goes to all of you, people. 🙂 becoming a member next season for sure!

      1. MANGE TOUT RODNEY

        Fantastic season

        1. Philman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Congrats for the 2nd top 10k in a row.

          Next year, aiming for another top 5k?

          Good luck with the Cout move. He will likely be my transfer, but not sure who to sell out of Ozil and Erik. Prob Ozil.

  6. PKW - Mbokani Faso
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Who do I bench?

    Hazard, ozil, alli, fabregas, king
    Kane, Costa, Jesus

    1. DHWizzo
      6 months, 27 days ago

      All-out-attach time.

      1. PKW - Mbokani Faso
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Used it already

    2. Irish Madridistæ ⭐
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Jaysus, all of your defenders I'd imagine 😀

      Out of that lot?

      One of the Chelsea players or Alli I reckon

    3. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Ouch.

      King?!

      Triple Chelsea is a bit nerve-wracking.

    4. CostaCoffee
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Hazard or costa could be rested, more than likely hazard

    5. chilli con kone
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I think Hazard personally as he is still due a rest

    6. PKW - Mbokani Faso
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      One of those days where, you just wish you had some sh*t players like gabbi or anichebe

    7. Evasivo
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Ozil or Alli

  7. OptimusBlack
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Difference C please :/

    1. Bobby_Baggio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      sturridge

    2. Evasivo
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Costa

    3. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Vardy?

  8. chilli con kone
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Did Pep say anything about Zabaleta starting in his last game for City?

  9. The_Colonel
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Want to get Coutinho as I see him as my best bet to break into the top 1k.
    So, in your opinion, which is the better route?

    Hazard + King => Fabregas + Coutinho (-4)
    or
    Alli ==> Coutinho

    Current template front 8 is
    Hazard, Sanchez, Alli, King, Sane
    Kane, Jesus, Anichibe

    Other suggestions welcome if you can see a better option
    Thanks

    1. Dave Boozle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Alli to Cout.

      Also swap out your Rolf Harris grav.

      1. The_Colonel
        6 months, 27 days ago

        thanks very much for the feedback on both 😉

    2. Mick J
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I’ve been considering option A, but I’m a bit reluctant to take a hit since there’s only one gameweek to make up for it. I have the ‘template front 8’, but with Eriksen instead of Alli. I guess Eriksen will be better to have this gameweek, well-rested and all, so not sure if I will get Coutinho in for him. But option B makes sense.

        Thanks for comment. The -4 is somewhat off-putting but if I did B and Hazard didn't play I may not get 11 out. My bench is Stephens, Holgate, Anichebe and there are question marks over Alonso's gametime as it is :s

  10. Henry FB

    Why is everyone on here so sure that Sturridge is ahead of Origi in the pecking order?

    1. BobBradleysOpportunity
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      cuz we had barely scored more than a goal a game for last 5, and then we scored 4 when he came back in

    2. RedArrows
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      They'll Probably play both. They can afford to take the risk as Boro attack is no threat at all and they need a win to be sure

      1. The Big Fella
        6 months, 27 days ago

        If they do play both and Lallana and Firmino are back and Coutinho plays, what is the formation? One has to be dropped.

        1. Henry FB
          6 months, 27 days ago

          This. It is Firmino coming back that puts them both playing in doubt.

          1. The Big Fella
            6 months, 27 days ago

            My guess is Sturridge to start with Origi benched and he will play Firmino off the striker and Coutinho and Lallana on the wings. He wants to get rid of Sturridge this summer so he will put him in the shop window.

    3. tm370
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      That is the big question -

      Because Sturridge is a better striker and is classy - but I agree, it's not certain that he will start. Depends on what Klopp expects and what he fears - Origi certainly works harder but Liverpool might need Sturridge's guile against a defensive Boro.

      Thanks for your thoughts, guys. Still not convinced either way.

      Currently considering that transfer myself

  12. Giggs Boson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 months, 27 days ago

    The smart bet may be a Benteke or Zaha punt given the Jose's likely lineup. "Not ready" youngsters and tired players...

    2. Jafooli

      Agreed, if I had a spare tranny, I'd be all over Zaha or Ben Fekkers...

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Benching Zaha 😐

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          6 months, 27 days ago

          You are? Not too deadly as he's likely to come on as there will be a couple surprises for sure.

          Who you starting ahead of him?

        2. Going Home
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Same, with King, Alli, Sanchez, Lallana, Kane, Costa and Jesus I had no choice

    3. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I kept Zaha all this time so he better do something now!

        Quite glad I held Tekkers after the dgw now too

  13. The Big Fella
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Hazard and Gabbi to KDB and Llorente sound like a good move? Yay or nay?
    Would a further Alli to Firmino/Coutinho for a -4 be wise? Yay or nay?

  14. jmcclory123
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Winning my ML by 59 points.

    Brought in Coutinho and Origi for Hazard and Anichebe.

    Captained Kane.

    Have Stephens and Cech on bench.

    Anything I should do differently?

    1. jmcclory123
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Caballero is other goal keeper, starting Monreal ahead of Stephens

      1. Pieterke30

    6 months, 27 days ago

    Anybody got an insight

    a) Nailed on 60 mins+ defender for Chelsea ?

    b) Nailed on 60 mins+ midfielder for Chelsea ?

    Thanks

    1. jmcclory123
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Willian will get a game I think

      1. Cech-King MoSalah
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Do you think Azpi will maintain his 100% - 90 minute record for the season?

    2. BobBradleysOpportunity
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      terry, fabregas would be my two guesses

    3. Mark-O
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Terry and Kante

    4. CostaCoffee
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Terry I would think

    5. jmcclory123
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Terry is a risk of getting an injury mid match

  16. CostaCoffee
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Have TC left and need to keep top 5k, Kane the sensible pick, don't need to chase in mini league as already over 200 pts up

    1. Cech-King MoSalah
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Yes, Kane will get all free kicks, Pens, Chances, half chances etc. - The Spurs team will make sure of that.

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Yup, him or Sanchez....

      1. Ophelia

        Firmino back?

      2. BobBradleysOpportunity
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 months, 27 days ago

        even with firmino back, i think he takes a wide role from origi, and lallana slots into coutinho's old role at 10

    6. MANGE TOUT RODNEY

    Caballero, Jakupovic
    Cahill, Davies, Smith, Robertson, Stephens
    Sanchez, Hazard, Alli, King, Carroll
    Kane, Vardy, Jesus

    1FT, 0.3 in bank

    Hazard & Alli -> De Bruyne & Coutinho (-4) ?

    1. Ophelia

      Do it

    2. RamaJama

      Think Haz and Alli could do as well. Sure Haz will play the last game in front of the home audience, who come to see the Champions

    1. Cahill => ? Fearing he will be benched, preferably a defender who could score under 6.7m or is it best to keep him?

    2. Also how likely are Southampton to keep a clean sheet from 0-100%?

    1. PKW - Mbokani Faso
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Hi Guys. Have 2FT but 0m ITB. Leader is 35 points ahead so would need a cheeky gamble somewhere or two. Ideas?

    Cech
    Vert | Luiz | Monreal
    Sanchez | Alli | King | Haz | Sane
    Jesus | Kane

    Cab | Yosh | Stephens | Anichebe

    1. Evasivo

      Haz Alli to KDB Coutinho and captain one of them.

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 months, 27 days ago

        i like

        1. Debauchy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Like too but rival could well bring in Cout too if has Haz ? Sturridge harder to get for leaders so an unlikely move

    2. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Haz to fodder and Anichebe to Sturridge Cpt
      You need a captain that leader does not have in team to give you a chance

      1. Bobby_Baggio

      Maybe Vardy -> Studge/Benteke as a final punt?

      1. Rash
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I know they could score big but they are 2 of the 3 my rival has so not sure what to do

                No Sanchez could help you a lot. May have to captain him and hope Kane stays quiet... I doubt he will though...

                Bailly and Rashford may not even play!!

                Honestly have no idea what route you should take. Just believe 🙂

  28. Giggs Boson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Not sure what to do here...

    Willy(wat)
    Lovren(MID) - Stones(wat) - Yoshida(STK)
    Ozil(EVE) - Hazard(SUN) - Alli(hul) - King(lei)
    RvK(hul) - Costa(SUN) - Jesus(wat)

    Pickford(Irrel.) - Stannis(lei) - Stephens(STK) - Holgate(ars)

    +0.1m, 1FT

    Quite like it how it is but would like Coutinho.

    Costa should start, and I think Hazard will too, so not really keen to remove them. Leicester have no Morgan or Huth, so I LOVE that I have King and Stannis to come off the bench. Leicester have been awful defensively since Morgan was injured. I don't want to take a hit so Alexis is off the table.

    1. Evasivo
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Ozil to Coutinho straight swap

      1. Giggs Boson

        6 months, 27 days ago

        Cheers.

        Not an Ozil fan? He has some incredible stats for creating chances. May be the best route though, or Haz...

        1. Evasivo
          6 months, 27 days ago

          I'm an Ozil fan, in fact I really wanted him for.the DGW but couldnt. Just think he's the weakest link and easiest route to Coutinho
