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
        3 months, 4 days ago

        No longer looking essential (probably haul this week)

    2. The 12th Man
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

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

  2. Tornado

    Best mid under 4.8m? Mainly used as a sub

    1. Klein
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days 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
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Probably c with mitro for 3 weeks then arnie?

    2. Totti
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

    Cairney —> Hazard

    1. Klein
      • 3 Years

    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
      3 months, 3 days ago

      B

  7. Hermanos FC

    3. TaiwanHC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

  8. The Tinkerman
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

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

    1. Totti
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      no
      it's pointless
      play trippier and yedlin

  9. RIDZ
    • 2 Years

    Begovic
    Robertson Otamendi Alonso

    2FT 1.1 ITB

    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
      3 months, 3 days ago

      otamendi
      yes get lacazette

  10. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

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

    1. Totti
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

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

  11. Hermanos FC
    3 months, 3 days 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
      3 months, 3 days 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

  12. Totti
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 3 days 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

  13. Game of Throw_ins
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Mane ➡ Sterling for -4. Seems ok right ?

  14. TaiwanHC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 3 days 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!
