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.

    Can this WC team be improved?

    Fab

    Digne, Alonso, Doherty, AWB, TAA,

    Gunnarson, Sterling, Sane, Fraser, Snodgrass,

    Kane, Wilson, Alba.

    If so how?

    Many thanks!

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years

      Midfield looks weak. Who is Alba?

      1. Jafalad
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 15 days ago

        Auba. It comes to Snoddy or Torreira at that level.

    2. mattyb09
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Alonso isn't worth 7.0 right now.

      1. bronzadonis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 15 days ago

        I think he might be if you want to go Sterling over Haz. That's my logic anyway

      2. Jafalad
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 15 days ago

        His form is worrying. He is the only one I'd look at downgrading to get Richarlison or Fanderson. Not sure which defender though.

  6. TaiwanHC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 15 days ago

    Is Auba really a better option than Laca?

    1. Bleh
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Probably in the long term. I'd say right now they're about even.

    Only my second season but have to say it is the toughest decision I have faced so far! Just can't decide
    A. Hazard, Arnie > Fraser, Auba (-4)

    2. KneejerkJoe

      Same situasjon, Im thinking Alonso because of poor performances and Emerson lurking

    3. Rage Against The Raheem

      Alonso imo

      1. @fpl_phenom
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 15 days ago

        would you do Alonso to Luiz to save money but have chelsea defensive cover for their good run of fixtures after city?

        1. Rage Against The Raheem
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 15 days ago

          Would probably look elsewhere for a defender as Chelsea have looked poor last few games and their fixtures are ok but most of their fixtures for 2018 are away games, Chelsea not as good away from home.

    4. Lukaku91

      Here's my 2 cents for your million dollar question: Rashford

    3. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      I'm in the same dilemma.

      Wilson has poor fixtures, but he is the safer option. I can see some regression with his 33% conversion rate from the last four game weeks with his fixtures ahead.

      Mitro has better fixtures and the opportunity to improve on his 16.7% conversion rate. The downside is his volatility with 4 yellow cards.

      The risk taker in me is saying Mitro and have some funds itb for next week.

  11. jdp219
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 15 days ago

    Best pairing to go along with Kane, Wilson and Sterling? Each would be a hit for gw16.

    1) Hazard; Mitro/Jiminez/Chicharito
    2) Sané; Firmino
    3) Bilva; Aubameyang
    4) FAnderson; Aubameyang
    5) Martial; Aubameyang

    1. MrFrodo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Can you have Sane and Laca?

      1. jdp219
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 15 days ago

        I wish. Only 9.3 in that spot.

  12. United2603
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    10 months, 15 days ago

    Surely Doherty in for Duffy is worth a -4 right??

    1. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Depends on the rest of your defense. If you can field three for gw16, then probably worth just benching Duffy. If Doherty only gets you 2 points, then you're still down. Might as well avoid the hit in that case. That's how I'd play it, at least.

        I trust neither, frankly. Which explains why they’re both 7m and not 9m, I suppose.

        I can see Rich doing fine this week but not in 17/18

        Fandersen I can maybe see getting something in all his games

      Sounds right, if you don't already have value tied up in Rich (I do, which is why I've had to find a way to fit both).

        I’ll make 0.1 of them both. Both will probably rise too, so in the longer run it’ll cost me 0.1

        But it’s for Sterling, so ...... there’s that

    1. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Nah

  17. Bleh

    Play Laporte or Alonso?

    1. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      I’m thinking Laporte

    2. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Alonso

    3. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Lap

    4. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Laporte has a 30% chance of a cs and Alonso has a 18% chance of a cs.

      -8? No ...

      1. FPL Ultras
        • 2 Years

        Why not mate?

    2. FPL Ultras

      Help please!!!

    3. Bleh
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      I wouldn't get rid of Wilson at this stage (I'm a non-owner).

  19. Keeneddie79

    Gtg or sub in TAA for who? (My thought is Sane may rest given how much he's played lately and so decent chance whoever is b1 plays anyhow):

    Fabianski
    Kolasinac, Digne, Doherty
    Salah (v), Haz, Sané, Fanderson
    Aubameyang (c), Jiménez, Rondon

    B: Foster / TAA, Kenedy, AWB

  20. Oggle22
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 15 days ago

    Fabianski
    Alonso TAA Bennett
    Salah Rich Mahrez Fraser Anderson
    Jiminez Kane

    Foster AWB Chilwell Arnie

    1)Arnie and Mahrez to Laca and Torreira -4

    2)Arnie and Mahrez to Aubameyang and 4.3m bench fodder -4

    3) G2G save ft or Arnie to some one else?

    Cheers

    Kola or Bellerin for this GW?

    1. Arctic monkeys
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Bellerin

    2. Lukaku91
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      kolasinac

    3. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Kool kids want Kola

    4. Deulofail
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      For one GW, Bellerin, unless you will also use the extra money elsewhere this week, then Kola, because the difference is negligible

      For more than one GW, Bellerin. Monreal is back on the scene, and you don't want that headache, even if they play together some weeks.

  22. Nuno

    Best 5th mid option less than 4.7m?

    Camarasa?

    1. Lukaku91
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      probably yes. gibbs-white only 4.3

      1. Nuno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 15 days ago

        I am aware, he's not a starter but likely to get a cameo most matches.

    3. Tinmen
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Same issue! I’m thinking Alonso

    4. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 15 days ago

      B because of his injury situation is not so clear yet

  27. Tmel
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 15 days ago

    Fab
    Laporte Robertson Doherty
    Rich Sane Sterling Fanderson Fraser
    Jiminez Kane
    (Alonso AWB Arnie)

    Stick with this or WC to get in Auba for Arnie?

  28. Tinmen
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 15 days ago

    Guys would it be worth -4 to swap Alonso and Arnie for Balbuena and Lacazette(C)?

    1. Lukaku91
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      i say yes

    2. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Not certain about Balbuena, but yes.

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Anyone think Snodgrass could be a good move instead of F Anderson. The price difference should help me get Sterling next week.

    1. BoleynWin
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 15 days ago

      Snodgrass will start the next few bit I can see Diangana eating up minutes off the bench, looked very lively when he came on against Cardiff.

      1. MrFrodo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 15 days ago

        Thanks. Being a hammer who would you get in to replace Arnie for your upcoming fixtures?

        1. BoleynWin
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 15 days ago

          I’ve just brought Anderson in, he really looks in the mood but can go off the boil just as quickly so beware.
          If you’re lookig at Strikers purely than Chica should be the main man.
