FFScoutcast Episode 271 – Traffic

Battling through traffic, illness and technical glitches, the Scoutcast crew emerge triumphant to discuss the key issues affecting Fantasy Football managers in Gameweek 9 and beyond.

After being stuck in motorway congestion a cold-ridden Az dropped by to join David, Andy and I just in time to answer the community’s questions about why none of us own assets from Arsenal. This is particularly head-scratching given the Gunners have scored more goals than any other side over the last four Gameweeks.

We also shake our heads in disbelief at why so many Fantasy managers are ignoring Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling, who is proving to be well worth his premium price tag this term.

Liverpool’s injury list and patchy form of some of their top players ahead of a fine run of games also come under scrutiny.

Elsewhere, David invents ‘the courteous brag’ as he details how he was the only member of the crew not to be entranced by Tottenham’s misfiring striker Harry Kane in Gameweek 8.

Gameweek 9 differentials and clean sheet prospects also get an airing and we finish off with Andy putting the rest of our transfer plans to shame with a typically audacious set of moves.

      No Liverpool attacker?

      1. Eden Wizard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 18 hours ago

        No longer looking essential (probably haul this week)

    2. The 12th Man
      • 5 Years

      If your not getting any Liverpool Attack I’d consider doubling up in defence.
      Alisson or TAA

    Best mid under 4.8m? Mainly used as a sub

    1. Klein
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 hours ago

      Hogberg for me. Maybe even dier for rare goals

    How's this looking. Decided to go without Liverpool midfield:

    Patricio, Fabianski
    Alonso, TAA, ***, Doherty, AWB
    Hazard, Sterling, Maddison, Richarlison, Obiang
    Firmino, Vardy, ***

    A) VvD and Mitrovic
    B) Gomez and Arnautovic
    C) Laporte and Arnautovic

    1. Klein
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 hours ago

    RMT

    Pickford Stek
    Robbo Alonso Shaw Doherty WB
    Salah Hazard Richarlison Maddison Stephens
    Aguero Mitrovic Ings

    Did Kane/Mane to Aguero/Hazard -4 after the games last weekend because I knew I needed hazard

    Still considering wildcard but can’t help but think 1 more week to assess would be ideal (City players returning from injury, Liverpool fixture swing and injury doubts etc)

    A) WC
    B) Hold

    1. Totti
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 14 hours ago

      B

        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 hours ago

    • The Tinkerman
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 hours ago

      Trippier, Yedlin > Robertson, Mendy (-4) ?

      1. Totti
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 hours ago

        no
        it's pointless
        play trippier and yedlin

    • RIDZ

      Fabs Bennett Awb Gunn

      Zaha must be out, which one out from these:
      a) Otamendi
      b) Walcott
      c) Deeney

      Is it necessary get in Laca for now?

      1. Totti
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 hours ago

        otamendi
        yes get lacazette

    • ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 hours ago

      Is it crazy to do Kane,Walcott to Arnie, Sterling (C) for a hit?

      1. Totti
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 hours ago

        i'm in the same boatand don't have aguero
        don't know what to do

    • Hermanos FC
        1 month, 17 hours ago

        Patricio
        Trippier Alonso Mendy
        Maddison Fraser Hazard Mane
        Jimenez Aguero Laca

        Hennessey WB Billing Cedric

        I had two FTs used one
        Trippier to Robertson.
        What about the second one?
        What's going on about Mane to KDB?

        1. Totti
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 14 hours ago

          no wait till tom.after the press
          many things could arise after the press conference

          what about trippier to arnold
          jiminez to wilson or king

      • Totti
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 hours ago

        A) is sterling enough as a city coverage for the next gameweek (Dont have aguero )

        B) Take a hit and get aguero instead of sterling

      • Game of Throw_ins
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 hours ago

        Mane ➡ Sterling for -4. Seems ok right ?

        1 month, 9 hours ago

        Thoughts on doing Trippier + Cook --> Robertson + TAA for free? Too heavy in defence? Current team:

        Fabianski - Foster
        Alonso - Trippier* - Doherty - Cook* - AWB
        Salah - Hazard - Maddison - Richarlison - Hughes
        Aguero - Wilson - Ings

        Thanks guys!
