    I'm more tempted by Sanchez I must admit. It is probably between Yaya and Sanchez for me...but see below, those Sat midday matches do present barriers to nervous fantasy managers. » Read

    I must admit I'm guilty of letting it influencing me. Looking at captaincy choices this weekend I'm reluctant to put the armband on Yaya Toure as it is the first match and is a Sat lunchtime kick off. But if it was the Monday night clash I'd have no hesitation in captaining him. Odds of success are the same though. » Read

    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topic How much does the time and day of the match effect your captaincy decision? There have been many posts and community articles over the years to disprove the myth that teams score less in a lunch time kick off, or are more likely to score at other times. Truth is the strength of the fixture not the time or the date are important to the outcome. But for fantasy managers there is still a reluctance to captain a player in a Saturday midday kick off for fear of a blank and a ruined weekend. Similarly some love to captain a player on a Monday evening kick off. This gives them hope all weekend, even if the odds of success are just the same as if it were played on Saturday lunchtime. So how much does the time and day of the match in a Gameweek effect your choice of captaincy and squad selection? » Read

    could you send the email to jonty@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk just in case it got lost in the system somewhere. » Read

    I agree with you on captaincy. Once you get to £10m I want to captain them. If not then I question why I own them. » Read

    Alot of midprice value too like Downing and Austin. I don't have Downing but wouldn't hesitate getting him in for £7.5m...he's underpriced at his current price given his returns. » Read

    Rooney, Sakho and Austin. Of those I might switch Rooney to another...want to see how he goes. At the moment though he is cheaper than Costa and scoring roughly the same - plus has assists and bonus in his locker - Costa is just goals - alot of them mind you, but if he doesn't score more than one then he is a waste of cash that week. » Read

    I prefer Fabregas to Costa. If I make any changes to my Chelsea players it'll be an Oscar to Fabregas upgrade. Fabregas covers most of Costa's goals, plus he gets extra points for clean sheets, bonus, the odd goal himself and is 2m or so cheaper. » Read

    I ditched both a few weeks ago and am now 600th or so in the world. There are many more who did the same. I've Oscar and Hazard. Both outscoring Costa and both cheaper - Oscar especially. There are many more in that boat. Be brave - there are better choices in my opinion - but I'll admit its a debatable stance. I think Baines is worth keeping though with Mirallas out - he really is a good prospect without the Belgian according to the stats. Pienaar also helps Baines a lot- watch out for him in the festive team sheets. » Read

  12. Scout Notes - Gameweek 16 - Monday 1 day, 19 hours ago

    I don't think he is a waste of money - purely on home form. He's a captaincy banker at home which is well worth that price tag and makes up for the away form. » Read

    Good luck...very impressive team. » Read

  14. Scout Notes - Gameweek 16 - Monday 1 day, 19 hours ago

    Fantasy Football Scout daily hot topic Wastes of money Which players are emerging as a waste of their hefty price tag? Is Costa worth his £11m+ valuation? He is a consistent scorer, but with no bonus or assists is he no longer captain material? Is Baines worth his £7m+ price tag? That's a lot of money for a lot of 1-2pt returns each week. But is his malaise down to Mirallas. With the Belgian injured will we see a better performing Baines? Is Rooney worth his £10m+ price tag? Played in midfield, he is still scoring a goal or assist, but is that enough for that price and is it worth spending £2m or so more for RVP? Feel free to comment on these and add your own potentially over priced players into the discussion. » Read

    And we have a winner. Congratulations JonnyCO7. Great team. Going to give us a very stern test this week. If you could email me your final picks - based on injury news etc - by 5pm Thursday complete with around 200 word explanation that'd be great. jonty@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk » Read

    I've edited that bit out...that was for a previous gameweek. Apologies. » Read

    I've got Rooney - but may make the switch if Rooney keeps getting 5-6pts. Want more bang for my buck for that outlay. » Read

  18. Navigating Festive Rotation In the Chelsea Defence 2 days, 14 hours ago

    Perhaps though he could get an extended break into this weekend. Or it is the first of two rests. The key I think is that in recent weeks Cahill has played the most. Certainly puts a question mark over him. » Read
