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.

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.

    Really confused over the West Ham striker situation, team news has a 4-4-2 with Perez and Hernandez, but who drops out when Carroll is fit? They seem to have hit form and have great fixtures

    1. Goat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Carroll

      1. Deulofail
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Probably this, but I'd guess Perez is more likely to be dropped if/when Carroll starts

    2. BoleynWin
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Pellegrini has said that Carroll will play a “row of games” however I can’t see him starting the next few until he’s fully upped his fitness.
      It’s possibe that we switch to 4-4-2 with Perez & Chica upfront, Anderson & Snodgrass/Diangana on the wings. If that gives you any more clarity...

  2. Champione
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    A) Sane + Laca
    B) Dilva + Auba
    C) Alli + Laca
    D) 5.6 mid + Kane

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Probably D, maybe B. Need to see rest of your squad.

      1. Champione
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Dubravka
        Robbo Doherty Diop Digne
        Salah Sterling Son Felipe A Richarlison
        Jimenez

        Hamer Arnie Mitro Alonso

        1. Champione
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 8 days ago

          Salah and Arnie out

      2. Champione
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Cheers. D gives me 7.4 for the mid actually

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      A or B, leaning B as i have both of those

    3. Mossi98
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      B

  3. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Do people think this is sustainable for Sterling? Haz/Sane not better options since cheaper and will similar/same fixtures?

    1. BenDavies
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      No. Sterling is a season keeper and superior to Hazard definitely and Sane.

    2. Champione
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Sterling is the best option atm

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Quite possibly. And I may well get him in for Haz next week.

        That doesn't answer the first q though

        1. Champione
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 8 days ago

          Q1: This is sustainable for Sterling.

  4. sentz05
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    1FT

    Got Kun and Arny. Do I ship both out and take -4 or just sell one?

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Depends on your squad for this GW, if it's passable try to hold off for another day and a half.

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      I'd take a hit and sort both.

  5. thischarmingman
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Wildcard this team?

    Patrício, Hamer
    Robertson, Alonso, Digne, Doherty, WBA
    Felipe Anderson, Hazard, Salah, Richarlison, Fraser
    Jiménez, Kane, Kamara

    Got 1 FT 0.2 banked.

    1. Champione
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      no need to WC. On the other hand you've got to use it sometime soon. Would wait personally

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      yeah, don't WC that

    3. QUEN

    5. thischarmingman
      • 8 Years

  6. Dynamic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    I am planning to wildcard after this gameweek.

    Does Kane (lei) -> Auba (HUD) sound like a good move?

    1. Lukaku91
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      If I was on wc I'd get both

    2. Origi-nal
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      No

    3. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Yes, sounds good for this week.

    4. BenDavies
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      lol, never. Kane is a season keeper now.

      1. Champione
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        nah

      2. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Salah and Hazard were season keepers...

    5. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Why not?

    6. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      I wouldn't. Kane could quite easily score a few against Leicester.

  7. QUEN
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Mane for who?

    I have Sané and Kane (not keen on spurs double up)

    1. Lukaku91
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Anderson?

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Dilva, Richa or Martial

    3. flipthebuzzard

      Laporte

    2. BenDavies

      a

    3. Wirbelwind

      always play laporte

    4. Monya Meow Meow

      Pretty sure I said Laporte before

    5. Lukaku91
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      thanks

  9. Eat my goal!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Thinking spurs defence is the way forwards

    They did alright with easy fixtures earlier in the season

    Question is who?

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      I agree, but Tripps was the only real option for me and it looks like he's got a niggly injury.

    2. Valar(Keith)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      If Trippier dint have his niggling injury I'd pick him. There's no one else worth getting except for lloris maybe

  10. Tmel
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Is it worth WCing Alonso out in order to get Auba in?

    1. BenDavies
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Overall probably yes. I'm a Chelsea fan and Alonso has been awful. Although I'd be concerned Auba doesn't start on Saturday. In general it's a good move though yes.

  11. BenDavies
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Thoughts on Arnie + Hazard ---> Lacazette + Siggy?

    Siggy is just for the Watford match; will transfer him out for Son ready for the Burnley game. I just don't want to commit to a Spurs mid just yet due to fears of rotation.

    1. flipthebuzzard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Thinking very much the same.... Not pulled the trigger yet mind...

    2. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Thinking the same but might just get son now and save a transfer

  12. flipthebuzzard
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Seems a fair bit of Auba love.... Less so for Laca;

    Who thinks Laca could be the better pick?

    1. Goat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      I’d rather Laca right now. Can’t afford either though

    2. Lukaku91
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Auba is the better pick. laca still a good pick

    3. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Better pick for this week I think

    4. flipthebuzzard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Any chance of rest for Laca? Or would you say more nailed...? Thanks

    5. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Have both now. One will make way for Kun when he's back.

  13. Visionaries
    • 3 Years

    Already have Kane & Sane, so would you go..

    Salah & Arnie >

    A Son & Auba

    Seems like a silly question.. But would you start Diop(CPL) or Fraser(LIV) this week? Already have Wilson starting if that makes a difference

  15. EgyptianKing
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 8 days ago

    After doing Holebas out // Kola in, my team would be:

    Patricio
    Alonso, Robertson, Kolasinac
    Son, Sane, Sterling, Martial, Rich
    Kane, Jimenez

    Hamer, Balbuena, Bissaka, Kamara

    Seem G2G?

  16. Oh Mane Mane

    Will Arnie drop tonight ?

  17. Deulofail
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Hey how about a -8?

    Hazzy + Vardy + Arnie > Snoddy + Auba + La(c)a

    I also have Mane and Antonio, who could turn into 2 of Siggy/Sane/Dilva/KDB/Richarlison/Son in the coming weeks

    Patrício (Hamer)
    Bellerín(c) Doherty Digne Yedlin (Alonso)
    Sterling Hazard Anderson Antonio Mané*
    Vardy* (Arnautovic** Kamara)

      Get rid of Antonio, he’s garbage :p

      1. Deulofail
        • 3 Years

        Lol yeah sure he should be top priority 😛

    2. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…

      I refuse to take anyone seriously that captains Bellerin.

      Period.

      1. Deulofail
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Then make me less ridiculous by recommending I get Lacazettttte 😀

  18. Saint & Reevesy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Which one would you pick out of these three for this week....

    Alonso (MCI)
    Alexander-Arnold (bou)
    Bennett (new)

    1. Monya Meow Meow
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 8 days ago

      TAA

    2. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B

    3. Deulofail
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Alonso and Bennett are fairly equal for me this week, but TAA is the winner. Equal odds for CS as Bennett. Higher attacking threat.

  19. LD
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Thoughts on -

    Arnie, Alonso -> Laca, TAA = -4 (double up with Robbo)

  20. RIPAguero
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Fabianski / Patricio
    Alonso / Robertson / Doherty / Digne / Wan-Bissaka
    Salah / Sane / Richarlison / Fraser / Diangana
    Kane / Arnautovic / Wilson
    1.3m ITB

    I have the exact funds to do:
    Alonso / Arnautovic > Aubameyang / Yoshida

    Yay or Nay?

  21. Nespinha
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    A) is it crazy to replace Aguero for Jesus and not Auba?

    B) Jimenez better option than Rondon?

    C) Balbuena --- Kolasinac worth a -4 hit?

    1. Hits from the Bong
      • 1 Year

      a) Jesus looks far from being able to perform on such a big stage, in fact it would be something of a miracle for him to actually score from his recent performances. It's like he's doing all he can to avoid being picked ahead of Aguero when he returns
      b) Jimenez is a better player in a better team but they're both one form. I think Jimenez is the safer option and more viable long term, but Rondo is a much better differential and could pay off. Still, very much an element of risk there
      c) Dunno why you'd want to get rid of Balbuena. Should be fit and faces a very goal-shy team at home. Kolasinac is temptingg, but especially for a 4 point when Balbuena is starting, you'd be up against it to stand any chance of getting back your hefty outlay

      The million dollar question

    Advice on which transfers to do?

    (A) Arnautovic to Rondon/Wilson
    (B) Arnautovic + Laporte to (A) + Kolasinac -4 hit
    (C) Other

    Team below:

    Fab
    Robertson, Laporte, Alonso, Doherty
    Sane, Salah, Fraser, Richarlison
    Kane, Arnautovic

    Pat, WBA, Neves, Success

  24. JohnnyMagrinho

    Up for consideration:

    1) Digne (WAT) v Kolasinac (HUD)
    2) David Silva (che) v Son (lei)

    Furthermore, is there any suggestion Mané might miss the Bournemouth game? Shaqiri set to start once more?

    I'm not really sure what to do, it seems that every week a new player gets injuried - what would you suggest here?

    a: Arnautovic + Hazard -> Kane + Paterson/Gunnarsson
    b: Arnautovic -> Mitrovic (and have two free transfers next week)

    Ederson
    Doherty, Robertson, Alonso
    Richarlison, Hazard, Fraser, Salah
    Jiménez, Aubameyang, Arnautovic

    Hamer, Zabaleta, Bennett McDonald

    0.3 million in the bank

    Fab - Hamer

    Alonso TAA Doherty Schindler AWB

      Hard to fault. I went for sterling over Haz just because I can see at least one of him and Sane hauling every week or possibly both

    Thinking of doing Salah and Hojberg to Sane and Fraser for a -4 as it looks like I'll miss out on a 0.3 price swing tonight (these are moves for the long term. I'd like to have Salah for this GW but my team value is average at best.

    Do you think it's worth it?

      I own Fraser but if I didn’t own him from a low value I wouldn’t be paying up for him here for a hit even if price is gonna go up more

  28. TheDragon

    Which is better this week and long term:

    A) Robertson, Alonso, Salah, Wilson
    B) TAA, Bellerin, Sterling, Aubameyang

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Robertson TAA Sterling Wilson

    2. Konstaapeli

      B

    Is Kolasinac still considered a punt or is he a safe pick?

    1. Valar(Keith)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Still a punt.. Planning Digne to him next week if things are more clear though

  30. Strchld

    Does someone know have Mane been training today?
    Or any reason why not to do this move now when Sterling is rising?

    Arnie and Mane to Jimenez and Sterling for a hit?
