The Scout Squad: FPL Gameweek 16

With the dust still settling on Gameweek 15, the Scout Squad panel return to offer their long-list of players to be considered for our regular Scout Picks feature before “we go again” this weekend.

The 72 nominations will be narrowed down to a squad of 14 (with the starting XI not exceeding £83m) ahead of the Gameweek 16 deadline at 11:30 GMT on Saturday.

Regulars Joe, Az and Peter – who have five top 1k finishes between them – are this week joined by myself, filling in for the unavailable Paul.

The panel expands on their notable selections and omissions in the article below.

Joe said…

The balance of power switches firmly to premium strikers this week as Harry Kane looks for his sixth goal in seven league games when Spurs travel to Leicester.

With Barcelona up next a few days later in the Champions League, the striker could see his minutes curtailed but I think he’ll start against one of his favourite clubs to score against. Over his last three league encounters with the Foxes, Kane has scored an impressive seven times.

Arsenal’s home tie with Huddersfield looks irresistible. I’m advocating fielding both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette for this.

The latter looks set to start, after making an impact with an assist off the bench against Manchester United last time out. Even if his strike partner misses out on a first XI berth I’m still confident of returns, after the Gabon international delivered two double-digit scores in a row as a substitute in Gameweeks 8 and 9.

If my colleagues only opt for one of this Gunners duo I’m backing Romelu Lukaku to take a striker’s spot for Fulham’s visit. A brief 27-minute run-out against Arsenal, plus a possible injury to Anthony Martial, should ensure he returns to the starting line-up. With attacking returns in two of his last four appearances, he should prosper against a Fulham side that has yet to record a clean sheet under new boss Claudio Ranieri.

Wolves once again provide value.

Attacking points in each of their last two matches sees both Matt Doherty and Raul Jiminez win my support for their trip to Newcastle.

Cardiff look another good team for bargain-hunting as they host a Southampton side that won’t have had much time to get used to the tactics of new boss Ralph Hasenhuttl. Should the Saints breach the Welsh side’s backline then defender Sean Morrison could still notch points, having earned assists in each of his last two starts. Callum Paterson could also prosper up front, with three goals in his last seven matches.

Elsewhere, Mohamed Salah’s benching against Burnley gives me confidence he will start and do well away to a Bournemouth side that has conceded more shots in the box than any other team over the last four Gameweeks. In fact, the Cherries last earned a clean sheet back in Gameweek 10.

Az said…

I can’t see many clean sheets as this hectic week of Premier League action comes to a head, so I’m happy to spend in my attacking slots as I look for some budget defenders.

Sead Kolasinac is a player I’m strongly considering in my own team, and his fixtures and attacking intent look to make a mockery of his £4.9m price tag. In fact, all my chosen defenders are under £5.0m and present good value for money, as well as seemingly secure starting spots.

In midfield, I’ve backed Mohamed Salah as my number one pick, despite taking him out of my own team last week. Jurgen Klopp has looked to rest his squad against Burnley, so you have to expect a strong starting line-up when they visit the Cherries. But Son Heung-min, Anthony Martial and Felipe Anderson aren’t far behind, and also offer great points potential for a fraction of the price. Raheem Sterling sees himself fifth but has to be included after having a nice night off against Watford – he looks certain to play and cause the Chelsea full-backs some real trouble.

Up front, the Alexandre Lacazette v Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang debate rages on – so I’ve gone for both of them. Lacazette didn’t start against United, but will surely be let off the leash against Huddersfield. This looks like it could be a rout, so doubling or even tripling up on Arsenal in this game and beyond looks a very viable strategy.

Harry Kane loves scoring against Leicester and rewarded those who brought him in early against Southampton. An injury to Marko Arnautovic also makes Javier Hernandez and Lucas Perez attractive options. Both of these West Ham strikers are the same price and are in decent form, as is Salomon Rondon, who is doing well for Newcastle at the moment.

Peter said…

Anyone who miraculously survived the carnage of Gameweek 15 need only look as far as last week’s Picks for evidence of the treacherous waters which we will be navigating into the Christmas period. Four players failed to start, two withdrew with injuries and one saw red meaning that the average minutes played across the 14-strong squad was just over 57! As context for some of my selections this week, it’s safety first but with everything firmly crossed.

Riding the coat-tails of the opposition of Fulham and Cardiff has proven a winning strategy for much of the season, but not so this week. A fit and firing forward from the Red Devils would be licking his lips as the Lilywhites pay a visit but FPL managers are left ruing a lack of form (Romelu Lukaku), lack of fitness (Anthony Martial) and lack of form or fitness (Alexis Sanchez).

We also await evidence that the Saints – under their new manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl – will experience any new manager bounce. As a result, it’s Cardiff who provide my only players from these two fixtures, with Sean Morrison and Callum Paterson respectively creeping into the fifth defender and midfielder spots.

It speaks volumes that the one fixture I’m confident enough to triple up for is the Terriers visit to the Emirates. Bernd Leno, Hector Bellerin and Alexandre Lacazette all come in as my top picks, although I’ll be hoping for my own FPL team that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang avoids any spectre of rotation.

My midfield top choice goes to Raheem Sterling despite a tricky visit to Chelsea. After sitting out Tuesday’s victory against Watford, the England man will be keen to pick up where he left off as City pay a visit to a Chelsea team which conceded twice against Wolves on Wednesday.

Elsewhere, I have double hopes for the Hammers (hosting Palace), Wolves (away at Newcastle) and Everton (who entertain the Hornets), although for me there are very few standout players this Gameweek.

Neale said…

I’m backing Wolverhampton Wanderers against my own side this weekend.

Although Salomon Rondon features in my 18-man squad (as filler, as much as anything else), I sense Matt Doherty and Raul Jimenez could repeat their midweek heroics and leave Tyneside with more than mere appearance points.

Newcastle United appear more at ease in away matches or in fixtures against the “big six” and I think Rafael Benitez struggles to balance his instinct to play conservative football with the palpable pressure to attack when the Magpies host sides around them in the Premier League table.

West Ham United and Leicester City have exploited that uncertainty at St. James’ Park this season, while Watford should have been out of sight at half-time in a game Newcastle somehow ended up winning.

Newcastle are particularly vulnerable at set plays and in the air, so Jimenez (ranked joint-third for headed attempts among FPL forwards) may benefit from those shortcomings.

Doherty could have a field day against makeshift left-back/wing-back Javier Manquillo, meanwhile, if Paul Dummett fails to recover from injury.

I’m anticipating a top-heavy Scout Picks in Gameweek 16 so I’ve focused on cut-price options at the back and between the sticks.

I’d be happy with either of Lukasz Fabianski or Fabian Balbuena (hopefully recalled after a rest in midweek) as the West Ham representative against a Crystal Palace side who were disappointingly poor in the M23 derby – the Eagles only breaching the Brighton defence from the penalty spot despite playing for over an hour with a man advantage.

Lucas Digne is my number one pick in defence after a luckless week for the Frenchman. Digne was seconds away from a nine-point haul in the Merseyside derby and ought to have emerged from the draw with Newcastle on Wednesday with at least one assist to his name (Cenk Tosun and Gylfi Sigurdsson spurning the two “big chances” he created), so I sense he’s “due” a sizeable return against a Watford side who are winless in five and who have conceded more big chances than all bar four teams during that spell.

Bournemouth conceded 17 shots in the box at home to Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night, which elevated a rested Mohamed Salah to my number one pick in midfield – despite the fact I will likely be ditching the Egyptian on a wildcard this week.

The cases of Raheem Sterling, Felipe Anderson and Sigurdsson need little explanation, while I’ve plumped for Johann Berg Gudmundsson as my fifth midfielder given that the Iceland international could potentially exploit a Brighton side missing Shane Duffy and who have conceded more attempts from set plays than all teams bar Newcastle.

I’m keeping our options open re Arsenal assets by covering both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette but I’m keen to see Sead Kolasinac make the final cut: over the last four Gameweeks, no FPL defender has racked up more key passes, big chances created or penalty box touches than the Arsenal wing-back. While Nacho Monreal’s imminent return to fitness may concern prospective Fantasy owners, I wonder if we will instead see the Spanish defender deputise for the injured Rob Holding at left centre-back rather than share wing-back duties with Kolasinac over the festive period.

    Vice captain strategy.

    So many have been stung with no captain during this rotation nightmare.

    Maybe it’s a viable option for a heavy hitting centre back like VVD who will never be rotated to be permanent VC? Or.. a goalkeeper?

      Kane pretty much as good as you can get to ensure a playing captain

            Yeah.

            Spurs have some huge games coming up. Something has to give. I got Kane last week, and I hope I’m wrong but I feel it’s a real possibility

      This is what heightens the appeal of getting Kane in for me-even though I blame him for derailing my season last time out!

    Alonso and Arnie -->> Kolasinac and Lacazette (-4) are my transfers this week I think.
    Do it tonight or wait?

    1. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 16 mins ago

      I don’t condone the Alonso exit. Never do over the last few seasons, as it always begins to occur.

      However it gives you a cracking captain option, so no reason not to do it tonight if you’re gonna.

      1. wasp3000
        • 4 Years
        10 days, 14 mins ago

        Ya I'd does and still leaves me with Salah this week and the option to bring in Sterling for Salah next week.

        I could do Salah and Arnie to Eriksen and Aubameyang (-4) this week but no chance of getting Sterling in then. Think I'll just pull the trigger tonight

        1. Flapjack ✅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          10 days, 12 mins ago

          I’d rather downgrade Salah to be honest than alonso. More value tied up etc.

          1. wasp3000
            • 4 Years
            10 days, 9 mins ago

            I bought Alonso for 7.1m recently enough and he hasn't really impressed since. I sold on my WC in GW 8 for Mendy and then brought him back

    2. A message to you Rudi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Chance that Arnie might be dropping again tonight.

      1. wasp3000
        • 4 Years
        10 days, 13 mins ago

        I could actually take the price drop as last night was the time to see him. Bought at 7.0m.

    3. Lionel Ronaldo
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 14 mins ago

      In a similar boat, but also considering (and favouring actually) Aubameyang + 4.6M DEF instead. Thoughts?

      1. wasp3000
        • 4 Years
        10 days, 10 mins ago

        I have AWB and Doherty already so don't really fancy any other 4.6m max DF. I couldn't even afford that move anyway

          Yeah same here but I have Bennett and Doherty..

          I used the extra change to do Bellerin. Altho Kola offers great value and threat.

        2. Lionel Ronaldo
          • 2 Years
          10 days, 4 mins ago

          It's only a one-week punt, I am WC'ing next week though. Does it still sound that bad?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Im pondering this one too. But the thought of Laca being slightly fresher, a fair bit cheaper, but potentially just as explosive, I had to go with Laca.

        Hope i dont regret this lol

        1. wasp3000

          I know. Fines lines eh. How happy would be if Laca starts and we capt him and Aubam gets his rest 😉

        I agree. But it's still Alonso. We have been here before with him. I ditched him also but i anticipate it will come back to bite me, so dont think il be going too long before i get him back in.

    5. Longlatini

        Might return thid weekend, but would expect him to take up Holdings spot as he is now injured. Kola should still start.

  7. A message to you Rudi

    • 3 Years

    Thinking whether or not Lacazette will be near enough nailed to start from here over the xmas period.

    Not too many minutes played as of late. Right to think he will get a good run out over xmas?

    1. Pierce34
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 15 mins ago

      I hope so - I've had him for a while and not planning to sell. Both he and Aubameyang are capable of returns off the bench anyway, and should start most.

    2. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 13 mins ago

      I’m happy with him.

      If it begins to get sketchy he’s very easy to downgrade.

    Do we think Shaqiri is likely to play most matches? Could be a good alternative to Salah who is not worth 13m.

    Thoughts about doing Salah, Arnie & Robertson -> Sterling, Lacazette & TAA for -8? Can't get conveniently Arsenal attacker in for only -4 with Salah still in my team. Could also just do Arnie to Jimenez and not take a hit :/

    1. Concrete

      Good moves but for a -8 .....

        That sounds a bit much I know :/ Any other ideas?

        Patricio
        Robertson, Alonso, Laporte, Doherty
        Salah, Sane, Richarlison, Murphy
        Kane, Wilson

        subs: Button --- Arnautovic, Wan-Bissaka, Hojbjerg --- 1 FT, 0.9 ITB

    For -8:
    A) Alonso Robby Arnie -> Doherty Kola Laca
    B) Alonso Hazard Arnie -> Kola Son Auba
    C) Slow down, ur mad

    Repost because bottomed

    My team currently
    Fabianski - 4.0
    Laporte - Alonso - TAA - Doherty - AWB
    Salah - Hazard - Anderson - Fraser - 4.2
    Auba - Jimenez - Arnautovic
    1.5 ITB 1FT

    Rubbish GW15 but I won my Minileague match up so at least not all bad

    Need some advice. Probably will WC next week.
    Options

    1) Hazard to Sterling and keep 1.0 ITB
    2) Downgrade Hazard to Richarlison and upgrade Arnautovic to Kane for - 4. This will help in next Minileague match up as opponent has Kane but not Auba
    3) Hazard to Sane and Arnie to Laca for a hit again. Is double Arsenal up front too much?

    What to choose?

    Thanks

    Bennet worth getting in on WC? Did he play well the other night after returning to the XI?

    1. Rage Against The Raheem
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 days, 7 mins ago

      He actually played quite well from the highlights I watched, made a tackle on Willian in the box which would have been a goal. But Doherty is the Wolves defender to have.

        Thsnks, yeah got Dot, just looking for bench playing fodder over Christmas.

          For bench fodder at the same price you could try Daniels (Bou) as he will be in the side for a while with Smith out until late Jan and Rico not getting time in Prem. Also Chambers at Fulham is 4.2 as well and he is playing as a mid last few games, he had a few shots yesterday.

    Would you ever get a defender for a hit?

    Defence at the moment is Alonso, Chilwell, Duffy, Wan Bissaka and Bennet. Thinking about getting rid of Duffy for TAA or Arsenal defender (Kola or Bellerin)

    1. Flapjack ✅

      If it enables an upgrade yes

    2. Lionel Ronaldo

      I would consider if the team has a near-perfect chance of getting a clean sheet, yes.

      Well he has more chance of playing than Arnie until that YC happens.

      He will prob time it so he gets Xmas off.

      Sticking with hazard and Alonso? What do you think of a -8....arnie hazard Alonso to Aubameyang son and Doherty

      I'm going Mitro. United conceding down the middle like it's their job. You've got depth on your bench to cover Mitro for GW 17 if needed.

    Couple of quick ones:

    1) Auba or Laca?
    2) who to captain from kane and Laca?

    1. Bleh
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 8 mins ago

      1. I think you answered your own question with no.2 🙂
      2. Laca (I own both)

      1. unitednations
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        So you prefer Laca over auba? Rationale?

  29. Claudio555
    • 1 Year
    10 days, 9 mins ago

    Have enough money to transfer Arnie>Auba. A no brainer? Any better options (alredy have Kane).

      If you got the cash just go for it.

  30. Garth Marenghi

    People who are captaining Auba—are you doing so despite the fact there’s a very strong chance he is benched? So you’re banking on points from a sub appearance? Or are you thinking he starts?

    1. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 days, 23 hours ago

      I am confident he will be in the points either way. He is prolific player when he starts and also off the bench (for example GW 8&9). One may speculate he is less of a threat off the bench, however I've yet to see the info backing this claim.
