The ScoutCast – Episode 235 – Swingers

Careering out of the international break at speed, the ScoutCast returns in anticipation of a turning point in our seasons.

We’ve been chattering for several weeks on the much anticipated “fixture swing”, and now we’re all set to put ourselves at its mercy.

What does it mean for our Fantasy line-ups?

In truth, with multiple transfers and Wildcards at our disposal, Jonty, Andy, Luke and myself started this latest episode still seeking our own answers. Over almost 90 minutes and with your community questions providing the steer, we do our best to reach some conclusions.

We weigh up Manchester United exit plans, Liverpool’s blunted attack and Jamie Vardy’s recuperation techniques, before previewing Gameweek 8 in the usual hap-hazard style.

This ScoutCast was first beamed live via our YouTube channel on Tuesday night. Be sure to subscribe to get notice of future live episodes.

If you’re a traditional type, you can acquire the mp3 audio version via this link on the first player below, or take in the full visual experience via the second player below.

      Will fall tonight unless he’s declared fit.

      They keep fudging the numbers

    3. Guru Mediation
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      They don't have the exact algorithm as it's kept secret. The numbers are therefore a guide. Note also that wildcard transfers don't affect the price rises/falls, and fplstats has no way of tracking which transfers are wc and which are not.
      It's very accurate outside of highly active wildcard weeks

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Plus it's predicting his second price change where the parameters are different to the first...

    Hello guys.

    A lot of issue need to be addressed. What should I prioritise first?

    Foster-Elliot
    Kola-Cedric-Zanka-Suttner-Long
    Salah-Alli-Willian-Ritchie-T.Carroll
    Kane-Lukaku-Chicharito
    2FT, 0.4 ITB

    Thinking of downgrading Alli next week but not sure what to do this week?
    Maybe Ritchie and Kola to Stones n Richarlison if both are not fit and WC next week?

    1. Evasivo
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Willian Chica to Mata Vardy?

  7. Evasivo
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    Thoughts on where to improve this WC team guys?

    Ryan Elliott
    Monreal Davies Ward Fernández Mbemba
    Eriksen Coutinho Silva RLC Carroll
    Kane Jesus Vardy

    £0.1ITB

    1. This Means More
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Too many Spurs with tough fixtures coming

      1. Evasivo
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        I almost agree, my only problem is trying to choose out of 3 Spurs all of which are highest scoring for their position

        1. Legomané
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 12 days ago

          I'm keeping Bavies Erik and Kane on WC, no brainer with BOU ahead imo, and all are easily downgradable next week. You are allowed to make transfers in the weeks following a WC you know!!!

      2. G-Whizz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Tough fixtures where? Their next 3 are Liverpool, Man U and Palace. Liverpool will leak a goal or two the way they play, Man U might be a stiffer test and then Palace.

        1. lespaul
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          Then arsenal away

          1. G-Whizz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 12 days ago

            You see Arsenal as a tough fixture? Seriously? Have you not seen their injury problems in defence?

            1. lespaul
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              11 months, 12 days ago

              Mustafi only injury

              1. G-Whizz
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 1 Year
                11 months, 12 days ago

                Kolasinac a doubt, Koscielny won't play...

          2. G-Whizz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 12 days ago

            Followed by WBA, lei, wat, STK, BRI, mci, bur, SOU
            Only toughie there is Man City tbh, maybe Leicester might test them the most after City in that lot and then you're in GW20.

            Far too much short-sightedness going on here and then the herd run with it imo.

    2. Hasselbaink Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Nice team, maybe Stones over Monreal for me

  8. Demel
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    To bring in Jesus for Morata I need to downgrade one of my starting defenders with my other transfer.

    Who would you lose?

    Bertrand - Jones - Trippier - Alonso

    Who would you pick as replacement?

    A) Cedric
    B) Cresswell
    C) Other

    1. grumpyman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Morata is cheaper than Jesus why do you have to find funds?

      1. grumpyman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Oops misread sorry. Cedric or Maguire!

        1. Demel
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          Bertrand to Cedric?

    2. Evasivo
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Bertrand to Cedric imo

    3. Midlands Saint73
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Bertie to Cedric obvious move for me.

    4. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Have you got someone else's team linked to your profile??

      1. Demel
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Erm...

        1. Demel
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          I don't think so.

          1. Gregor
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 12 days ago

            The team linked from last week doesn't have Morata and already has Cedric!

            1. Demel
              • 7 Years
              11 months, 12 days ago

              That's odd

              My team...

              Foster - Elliott
              Bertrand - Jones - Trippier - Alonso - Mbemba
              Eriksen - Silva - Ramsey - RLC - Carroll
              Kane - Morata - Vardy

              1. Gregor
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 8 Years
                11 months, 12 days ago

                I'd probably keep Morata if he's going to be back next week given the Aguero news.

  9. Numb
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    The international break has been good to Aguero owners. He's only missed one GW and that was Chelsea away

    1. Karan14 - (CWT Balegium)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Doubt it he starts this week.

      1. Numb
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Maybe, although he seems to think he is. Or maybe 30 or so minutes to give Jesus a rest.

        1. Karan14 - (CWT Balegium)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          30 mins seems more likely. I think there was another instance when he announced himself fit and dint start.

  11. Karan14 - (CWT Balegium)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    How nailed is Keven Wimmer?

    Rotates well with Ward worth getting as 5th defender?

    Appreciate your thoughts! 🙂

    1. Numb
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      The ScoutCast guys talked about that rotation but concluded that Wimmer is not nailed on. Think Shawcross is close to a return.

      1. Karan14 - (CWT Balegium)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Cheers mate!

        Barely any options rotate with Ward then.

        1. Numb
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          Bit of a minefield with Zouma, Martins Indi and Shawcross competing

    2. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Hard to say because since he's been there they've had so many injuries. Hard to say what Hughes considers his strongest defence.

      1. Karan14 - (CWT Balegium)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Might just have to go with a Newcastle defender then.

    3. Johqvist
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      I was totally set on rotation him with Ward but maybe that's a transfer waiting to happen. Would be great if Mbemba was nailed but who knows what's really happening with him?

  12. Eden ACCOUNT CLOSED
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    WC .. Completed it mate 0.2itb

    Elliot Speroni (Might play?...Worth the extra 0.1 over Pereira)
    Alonso Bavies Cedric Martina 3.9
    Silva Sterling Choupa RLC Carrol
    Kane Kun Kaku

    1. Demel
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Nope. A 3.9m defender who will never play. Martina who will often not play. Davies who sometimes won't play.

      1. Eden ACCOUNT CLOSED
        • 2 Years

        lol thanks

      2. ⚽️ Dingo ⚽️
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Bad, bad defense.

        1. Eden ACCOUNT CLOSED
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          Chelsea Spurs & Southampton have terrible defensive records, you're right

          1. ⚽️ Dingo ⚽️
            • 2 Years
            11 months, 12 days ago

            Martina and 3.9 (never heard of him, who does he play for)

    2. Midlands Saint73
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Kun won't play

      What makes you think Kun will start?

      1. Eden ACCOUNT CLOSED
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        I don't per-se.....Just don't think Jesus will either! Kun's self-declaration of fitness of Twitter is enough for me

    4. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Kun huge risk, could go down in price.
      Get Kun next week if the news is good.

      1. Eden ACCOUNT CLOSED
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        The disappointment of Kun not starting is insignificant compared to when Jesus doesn't after the flights and 2* games this week 😉

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          Not saying have Jesus. But either are horrible if 11.5 mil benched or have cameos

            True story mate! I don't know what to do but having Jesus doesn't feel right

    Aguero back, lol at Sterling and Jesus owners.

    1. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Both going to be benched for Aguero?

      1. FALCAO & MOU
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Man City have game on 14, 18, 21, 25, 28, 2nd and 5th according to my time zone. They have Bernado, Yaya, Sane, Silva, De Bruyne, Jesus, Aguero, Sterling, Gundogan, Fernandinho for I don't know, 6 spots.

        1. Karan14 - (CWT Balegium)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          They had these many games last 3 weeks also.

          1. FALCAO & MOU
            • 3 Years
            11 months, 12 days ago

            And we know how frustrating Jesus was, we also know many of their players were not fit for these games either through injury or suspension.

        This, got a brace last game with Kun starting, so...

        1. FALCAO & MOU
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          I don't think Man City will be scoring 5 goals every game.

      Can see Kun on the bench this week. And also both can not be benched for him only one will.

    WC team options

    Team 1 (3-4-3)
    Pope | Elliot
    Davies Monreal Ward | Clark Hünemeier
    Salah Silva Sterling Doucoure | TC
    Kane Lukaku Vardy

    Team 2 (4-3-3)
    Pope | Elliot
    Davies Monreal Ward Otamendi | Clark
    Hazard Sterling Choupo-M. | TC RLC
    Kane Lukaku Vardy

    Which looks better?

    1. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Don't fancy the double Burnley choice at the back.Go for Fabianski instead of Pope

      I like team 2 better.

      1. frenchfries
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        I understand, im considering it. Its risky, but could pay off.

        Thanks.

      why you keep kaku and not get jesus ?

      1. frenchfries
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        7 goals 1 assist in 7 GW, playing 90 mins every game. Think he will keep his form, i have no reason to doubt him. Had Jesus, dont like the rotations and minutes for a player in that pricerange, but its just my opinion. Might play more now that aguero is out, but he will be back soon.

  15. Atimis
    • 2 Years

    Which one would you pick long term?
    Ota vs Luiz
    Or other?
    Cheers!

    1. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Tough call. Probably David Luiz, just. One thing to bear in mind with Otamendi is he is 2 yellows away from suspension. Always likely to be rotated too.

    2. RIDZ
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 12 days ago

      I'd go for Luiz if you have more money.

    Rangel & Pereira or Mbemba & Speroni (could start this week) - 0.2 difference but Mb & Sp unlikely to play

  22. ⚽️ Dingo ⚽️

    I actually think going without City might be a good idea. Too much risk around minutes.

    1. Freddo
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Say that ten times in a row and you might start believing it.

      Stoke are struggling with injuries at the back, so were Watford.

      Sometimes you're forced to roll the dice.

      1. ⚽️ Dingo ⚽️
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        For me it's Silva or no one.

      2. Holmes
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        We have to pick them for atleast 3-4 weeks, not just Stoke 😮

    2. Numb
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Dunno, Silva seems pretty nailed on. And Aguero once he's fit.

    Noticed one of the fellas on the Scoutcast calling Cedric 'Ceeeedric'. Never considered that it might be pronounced this way. Have I been saying it wrong all this time?

  24. The Man Pastore
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    I stuggle to decide who to bench out of :

    A) Jones (liv)
    B) Cedric (NEW)
    C) Naughton (HUD)
    D) Mee (WHU)
    E) TCarroll (HUD)
    F) Atsu (sou)

    Currently on CDF but not sure it is the right move. Any thoughts?

    1. Dave Bauer
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Carroll is easy choice to bench.

      Otherwise, very tough. Jones I think. And then flip a coin!

  25. Eden ACCOUNT CLOSED

    Even at 13:30 when Pep comes out and says "Sergio is ready", the haters will still say he's bluffing.

    1. ⚽️ Dingo ⚽️
      • 2 Years

      He never broke his ribs did he?

      1. Eden ACCOUNT CLOSED
        • 2 Years

        City site said injury mate not break

    2. Lone Wolf
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 12 days ago

      True. But that haters or realistic thinking ones assume that even if he is ready he may start on the bench and get about 30 mins

      1. Eden ACCOUNT CLOSED
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Agreed but a back to full training Kun is fresher than a two international games plus 16 hour flight Jesus......

  26. Lone Wolf

    Play one

    A) Jones vs Liv
    B) Choupo vs City

    1. Kushal

      JONES

    Is Newcastle defender the best option to rotate with Burnley?

    No option at Stoke who is nailed.

    1. Numb
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Pieter and Zouma are

      Also, Cresswell.

        Too expensive. Budget is 4.5m. Should have mentioned that.

    2. Johqvist
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Was set in bringing Wimmer in but he might be a transfer waiting to happen.

        • Has Moderation Rights

        Seems to be 1st choice ATM.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          I'm just afraid Shawcross, BMI and Zouma is ahead of him when all are fit. Might be worth the risk though.

      C if you're thinking long term. A/B if you fancy a punt that may or may not pay off.

    2. Leo10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      A is a brilliant short term punt. C is the logical long term choice. I have both so can't help you there. What are you leaning towards?

    3. Ciro Di Marzio
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Thanks for replies. My rank isn't very good so might take a risk with Sterling, see if I can catch up a bit.

      The arsenal defence are going to be in shambles. I would do a Kola - Otamendi switch instead since you already have Jesus 🙂
