The Fantasy Football Scout Leagues Round-Up

With the final international break of the season now upon us, we’re afforded time to assess the leading contenders in the Fantasy Football Scout leagues across a variety of games. With leagues in Fantasy Premier League (FPL), Ultimate Fantasy Premier League,Sky Sports and Sun Dream Team, there’s plenty to catch up on.

FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE

Following an 80-point Gameweek, Chris Rigden maintained his one-point lead at the summit of our Scout League. Like all of the top five, the bulk of Chris’ haul can be attributed to handing Harry Kane the captain’s armband. Supplementing the Englishman’s efforts, Dele Alli, Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy and Dimitri Payet also delivered attacking returns. Clean sheets from Ashley Williams and Toby Alderweireld capped off a strong showing. Chris now stand on 1,915 points – enough to earn him eighth spot overall, just 23 points off the FPL summit.

Craig Ward retained second place by also posting an 80-point round. He fielded a very similar team to Chris but opted against defensive coverage from Tottenham Hotspur and instead profited from Christian Fuchs’ shut-out and maximum bonus points. Now up to twelfth overall in FPL, Craig’s decision to bench the likes of Aaron Cresswell and David Silva ultimately paid off in light of their unproductive outings.

Adrian Lockhart (77) and George Man (82) are neck and neck with a total score of 1,905 points. The former tripled up on Spurs assets but will rue his choice not to deploy Robert Huth in the starting XI. As for the latter, he benefited from a host of the usual suspects and a trio of defenders that all recorded clean sheets.

By virtue of tallying 88 points in the previous batch of fixtures, Panna Fricker sneaked into the top five. Although she elected to bench Hector Bellerin (12 points), Lukasz Fabianski proved to be a key differential as she climbed up to 29th overall.

Thanks to the performances of our top five, the Fantasy Football Scout league sits at the top of the Best Leagues as we look to retain our title once again.

FPL MEMBERS SCOUT LEAGUE

Chris Rigden also charts top of our Members’ League, boasting a 17-point lead over second-placed Andrew Dougan. Bellerin and Alexis Sanchez came up trumps for Andrew as he improved his overall standing with an 84-point return.

Ralf Buckenmaier notched 85 points to push himself into third position. Ralf benched all the right players and enjoyed a clean sweep of shut-outs from his backline.

In the wake of a mammoth 95-point Gameweek, Marsel Levi occupies fourth spot. Sanchez, Bellerin and Fuchs were his star performers beyond Kane.

Staying true to his team name (“Gettin’ Siggy Wit It”), Euan Thompson bestowed Sigurdsson with the captain’s armband. He consequently slipped to fifth in the rankings as many of his rivals plumped for Kane as captain.

ULTIMATE FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE

Courtesy of an 101-point Gameweek, Sultan Osman (2295) extended his lead at the peak of our Ultimate Fantasy Premier League table to 53 points.

With regards to the chasing pack, Panna Fricker, Mateusz Grzadzielewski and Sean Tobin are locked in a three-way tussle on 2242 points. Meanwhile, Stephen Wakefield (2235) propelled himself into fifth after chalking up 94 points.

SKY SPORTS FANTASY FOOTBALL

Resting on 2168 points, Alan Wood is a massive 181 points clear of second-placed Dexter Hayes (1987) and looks destined to claim the crown in our Scout League. Alan is also the overall number one in Sky and sits 122 points ahead of his nearest rival.

Elsewhere, Jonathon Bancroft (1985) is positioned just two points shy of Dexter in the bronze-medal berth.

Ranking top in the League of Leagues standings, we’re well on course to regain our title. To join this league use the league name: FFScout and the code: 8009000

SUN DREAM TEAM

Despite experiencing a middling Gameweek (58 points), David O Byrne (1850) remains the highest-charting player in our Sun leaderboard. The entirety of his back four registered clean sheets, but he suffered from Raheem Sterling’s injury and a no-show from Memphis Depay.

Jeff Payne (1824) shot into second place due to a 90-point round. The likes of Christian Eriksen and Daniel Sturridge furnished his outfit with a differential flavour that paid dividends. Four points back in the third slot, Jonathon Bancroft (1820) is banking on Arsenal to end the season on a high note, given that he’s recruited five players from the North London club.

Positioned fourth and fifth, respectively, Charles Mouzon (1800) and Colin Drury (1776) both managed 64 points in the last wave of match-ups. The former was hamstrung slightly by Diego Costa’s suspension and Roberto Firmino’s injury, while the latter will likely be planning an exit route for the out-of-favour Olivier Giroud.

    Anyone concerned about Everton blank for GW 35 regardless of the triple Doubles or will we be using FT's to solve it by then?

    1. Hooky
      • 4 Years

      They have a blank?

      1. Taffer
        • 5 Years

        yes

        1. Hooky

          Back to the drawing board for me

    Is it now safe to drop Aguero?

    No one will captain him in 33 and two away games 34.

    Just a thought.

    1. Respect My Authoritah

      Considering it. It was a firm no before due to 33 & 35, but now...

    2. Lucy.
      • 5 Years

      Think how many will TC him for 34 though...

    3. Clump
      • 4 Years

    Well this news is pushing me closer to 15 DGW players, assuming all are fit how does this look:

    DDG Mignolet
    Bellerin Rojo Gabriel Janmaat Jagielka
    Sanchez Payet Firmino Lennon Mahrez
    Aguero Wickham Lukaku

    I guess i have to say goodbye to Kane 🙁

    1. FPL Wisdom
      • 4 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      I'd look at Robles over one of the GK's. Rojo and Gabs give me the fear

    2. Bøss ⭐
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      you'll have problems GW35 with 5 outfield players blanking

    Im sticking to my exact gameplan bar Elliott -> Robles.

    1. FPL Wisdom
      • 4 Years
      3 years, 1 month ago

      Robles is super Nailed in WC plans now i guess

  7. Koflok
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Ok so not as simple as I thought

    1) Stick with current plan and go with just Lukaku
    DDG - Firmino - Kane - Lanzini

    2) Simple straight swap with 3 Everton
    Robles - Firmino - Kane - Lennon
    *extra money to do Simpson -> Fuchs

    3) A bit mad to try to fit in Barkley
    Robles - Coutinho - Sturridge - Barkley

  8. jurgenklopp.8
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 years, 1 month ago

    Adrain - Butland
    Moreno - Rojo* - Gabriel* - Jagielka* - Fuchs
    Payet - Firmino* - Lanzini* - Mahrez - Ozil
    Kane - Lukaku - Kun

    I have sadly already spent my wildcard ;(
    I can get this team with 2 hits, is it worth it?
    If -8 is worth it, should I -12 to get Janmaat in for Moreno?

    *would be transfers in.

    Stoopid Everton and their stoopid extra stoopid DGW.

    Preferences?

    A) Coleman - Barkley - Ozil
    B) Otamendi - Lanzini - Sanchez

    Just realized this. to play BB in gw 34 you have to WC now, IF you plan on TC gw 33...
    Dont get fooled with TC gw 33 and planning to WC for gw 34...

  12. Johannes
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    This team ok for GW34, or should I just WC? It involves 1 hit and I will have Jagielka and Lukaku for GW33. TC during GW33 or GW34

    Mignolet
    Bellerin - Jagielka - Williams (Simpson, Van Dijk)
    Payet - Firmino - Ozil - Mahrez (Alli)
    Aguero - Lukaku - Kane

    Any love for John Terry ?

    - Last season in the PL for him
    - Chelsea would want to finish higher
    - DGW approaching
    - good GW35 fixture when many teams blank
    - attacking potential ( the last few games he played he tried getting into CF positions in the dying minutes)

    Who fancies Newcastle to get a few clean sheets under Rafa, more so than Everton will? Robles vs Eliot here. Plus Eliot has a game in 35. Away to Liverpool 🙂 Clean sheet there is written in the stars for the fat waiter...!
