Paul said…

I’m tipping a double-up on Liverpool’s defence at home to Burnley, with both their full-backs more than capable of hefty hauls in Sunday’s early kick-off.

A number of pricey strikers have obliging opponents this weekend and in order to balance the Scout Picks budget, I’ve gone with three midfielders under £6.5m.

As usual, I’ve included some overlooked options in my squad, with Harry Maguire and Manuel Lanzini among my favoured differentials.

Both impressed last weekend and, with strong fixtures in Gameweek 31, now could be the time to get on board.

Maguire was afforded license to roam forward as Leicester switched to a back-three in their first match under Brendan Rodgers, firing three attempts on goal against Watford.

It’s his aerial threat, however, that could prove the undoing of Fulham.

Maguire has recorded 16 headed attempts – placing him fourth among defenders – and sits third for efforts on target, with 11.

The Cottagers, meanwhile, have conceded 84 aerial efforts, which is the fourth-worst record in the Premier League.

Lanzini set the tempo in his first start of the season as West Ham breezed past Newcastle.

Not only was he ranked first for successful passes in the opposition half, the Argentine also received more passes in this area of the pitch than any other West Ham player.

Essentially, that suggests Lanzini is the go-to player for his team-mates when the Hammers have possession in attack. Having played a part in 40% of their goals when selected last term, his influence will surely grow over the run-in.

Jeffrey Schlupp also deserves a mention, with one goal and three assists in the last five Gameweeks since moving into central midfield for Palace.

The Ghana international recorded eight key passes, seven shots and five efforts in the box over that run – all totals that place in the top five defenders.

Joe said…

On this week’s Scoutcast, we discussed the notion that a successful FPL team needs a good combination of well-owned ‘shields’ to protect rank and differential ‘swords’ to steal a march on opponents.

With that in mind, I’d like to see this week’s Scoutcast packed with ‘shields’ from Manchester City or Liverpool, who both have favourable home ties and will be desperate to maintain momentum in their league title chase.

I favour a double-up on Reds attackers for Burnley’s visit, given the strong home form of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. Between then they have scored 21 goals at Anfield.

The only player to surpass their respective home tallies of ten and 11 is Sergio Aguero. His 15 Etihad goals and more than 40% ownership make him another essential rank protector to include this week.

Eden Hazard’s seven home goals ahead of Wolverhampton’s visit sees him added to my list of ‘shields’.

Meanwhile, his team-mate Gonzalo Higuain looks a perfect ‘sword’. The Argentine is owned by a mere 4% of FPL managers and has already amassed three goals across his five league run-outs.

Cesar Azpilicueta is another low-owned Chelsea gem for the Scout Picks committee to consider, with three assists in his last four matches.

Crystal Palace assets offer FPL managers a further opportunity to climb the rankings, with Wilfried Zaha’s five successful strikes in as many league starts a key asset when rivals Brighton drop by Selhurst Park. The Ivory Coast international has scored an impressive four goals in his last quartet of appearances in all competitions against the Seagulls.

I’ve tentatively handed a selection to Leicester’s Ricardo Pereira, who has delivered me just two points since drafting him in three Gameweeks ago. With a mere nine goals on the road, I think his opponents Fulham will at last hand him clean sheet returns.

Neale said…

I won’t rehash the case for Wilfried Zaha as I covered the Palace winger fairly comprehensively in this week’s Digest, but Jeffrey Schlupp has finally made it into my selections after weeks of clamouring for a call-up.

A defender in Fantasy Premier League, Schlupp was deployed “out of position” in central midfield in Gameweeks 26-28 but – even better – was pushed further forward into the front three in Gameweeks 25 and 29.

Schlupp was covering for the suspended Zaha on the left flank against Fulham but played in the same team as the Ivory Coast international at Burnley on Saturday, with Zaha moved over to the right wing.

A benching is always a possibility with Schlupp but even if Andros Townsend is recalled against Brighton, the Ghanaian utility player could move back into the midfield three and still pose plenty of threat against a Seagulls side that has conceded two or more goals in each of their last five Premier League away games – and be eligible for clean sheet points, of course.

I’m rooting for a low-scoring affair at St. James’ Park on Saturday, with Martin Dubravka and Lucas Digne both making my selections.

The Magpies have kept clean sheets in three of their last four home fixtures but if Everton are to breach Rafael Benitez’s mean backline, it could well be from a set-piece situation – as happened at the London Stadium last Saturday.

Newcastle have consistently conceded chances from set plays all season (more than any other side) and Digne has taken more successful corners than any other defender in 2018/19.

The Toffees also come into this match off the back of two clean sheets plus decent underlying stats (fourth for fewest shots in the box and big chances conceded, joint-first for fewest shots on target conceded) in their last six away matches.

With premium buys Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah all shamelessly nominated, I’ve also sought to include some budget players should we require them in the Scout Picks.

David Brooks is fit again after a month on the sidelines, with his price having dropped to an inviting £5.0m during his absence.

Bournemouth are next up against Huddersfield, who have conceded more chances from their left flank over the last six Gameweeks than any other side – something Brooks could exploit if deployed on the right wing.

Based on points per million, Brooks is the best-value FPL midfielder under £6.0m this season.

Manuel Lanzini is purely an “eye test” punt, following his display against Newcastle last weekend.

While the Argentinean midfielder blanked and didn’t set the world alight from an underlying stats point of view (other than a 97% pass success rate), he looked sharp in a 90-minute showing and was lauded by his manager after the game.

The wealth of options that Manuel Pellegrini has at his disposal is a worry from a rotation perspective but West Ham representation against a free-falling Cardiff side, devoid of the services of Sol Bamba and with their fans starting to revolt, seems a necessity.

Peter said…

With just four points from their last six outings, it’s fixtures over form for Leicester City with the condemned Lilywhites in town. That said, with three goals in his last four matches, Jamie Vardy has been consistent, though not explosive.

During that time, Leicester’s defensive assets have frustrated but I’m sticking with Ben Chilwell. The England youngster and Ricardo Pereira have each created six chances in that period; the Portuguese leads 2-0 for big chances created, but Chilwell carries a slightly bigger goal threat with two shots on target.

With 21 chances created in his last four matches (just one big chance), I’m also tipping James Maddison to supply the bullets for Vardy.

Speaking of goal threat, the two main title rivals are tied on 13 goals each in their last four home matches, with opponents Burnley and Watford each averaging just under two goals conceded per game recently.

The Reds and the Sky Blues are likely to feature heavily in our selections then and – with only Vardy and Harry Kane posing anything close to their threat according to the bookies – Mohamed Salah, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero form a formidable, if costly trio. Salah, of course, is in lamentable form but having removed him before his hat-trick at Bournemouth, I’m turning a deaf ear to the doubters for a player who has averaged an attacking return in each of his 14 appearances at Anfield (ten goals and four assists).

Brighton have shipped ten goals in their last four away days, including four against Fulham. Only Trent Alexander-Arnold (also selected) has created more big chances than Patrick van Aanholt’s three recently and the Dutchman has notched at least five goals of his own in each of the last three seasons, albeit that he is languishing on one strike so far this campaign.

Meanwhile, Wilfried Zaha leads Michy Batshuayi in recent games for goals, shots on target, chances created and big chances created so I’ve favoured the Ivorian over his team-mate.

Budgetary restraints lead me away from some tempting attacking options from both teams at the Emirates as Arsenal entertain Manchester United in the weekend’s final action. Instead, an outlay of a mere £12.4m secures me the services of Miguel Almiron and Manuel Lanzini.

Almiron has nothing to show for his four shots on goal and nine chances created since joining the Magpies but the potential is there.

Lanzini, like most of the Hammers’ attacking players, is a gamble given rotation but I desperately want representation against a Cardiff defence that will be missing Sol Bamba and for whom Sean Morrison is yet to regain his stride following injury. Obviously, some reliable pre-deadline team news regarding Marko Arnautovic’s position may alter this train of thought, but Lanzini sneaks into fifth spot for now.

The Community Champion

The Community Champion who has the best lead over the Scouts during 2018/19 will win a £100 Amazon voucher (currently we can only offer Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com vouchers).

fclackless’s Gameweek 10 victory over the Scout Squad crew by a score of 77-44 remains the deficit to beat.

    Which 3 players to bring next week for -4 in preparation for GW 31?
    Have 1.9ITB and aiming to move Hojbjerg,Doherty and Sterling out...

    Fabianski
    Robertson-TAA-Pereira-AWB
    Salah(C)-Sterling(VC)-Pogba-Anderson
    Higuain-Jimenez

    Guaita-Doherty-Barnes-Hojbjerg

    1. Bavarian

      for Luiz-Hazard & Fraser , good moves??

    2. Four Season Wonder
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Brooks is a great enabler. So i'd say him for Hoj.
      Haz for Raheem
      Doherty becomes D.Luiz (if you can afford that)

      Good luck

    I think I will do one of my GW31 planning moves this week with my 1FT but which to do is killing me!:

    A) Jota (che) > Brooks (hud)
    B) Jimi (che) > Vardy (FUL)

    The final move is definitely for next week (Sterling > Haz)!

    The difficulty is I would prefer to dump Jota this week out of the 2 but Vardy clearly has more potential to score big than Brooks....
    Alternative is to keep Jimi (and bench in GW31) and get Brooks and Maddison for Jota and JWP.

    What do you think?
    Cheers

    1. Holmes
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      B has higher potential

      1. donlobatto
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Yeh - tbh for some reason I thought I had loads of value tied up in Jimi but it's only 0.1-0.2m so would be ok ditching this week. Knowing my luck he'll sneak a goal vs CHE!

    2. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Im selling both Jota & Jimmy for Vardy & Brooks this week.

      Jota needs to go but Vardy is a better option then Brooks.

      Why not take a hit?

      1. donlobatto
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        It's an option for sure... I'm just not certain Vardy will outscore Jimi by more than 4pts this week - on paper he should ... but will he ?

    3. Four Season Wonder
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      B this GW, A next GW.

      1. donlobatto
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Thanks. Had planned the other way round but the potential for Vardy this week is swinging it in his favour

  3. Little Red Lacazette
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    If Wilson is declared fit, who to get between him and King?

    1. Pras United
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      He was declared fit last week, but didn't even make the bench. Unless Howe says he starts (unlikely) - you need to go King imo

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Yeah

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Really unsure, I feel even if he's declared fit, he still might miss games.

    3. Four Season Wonder
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Just get King and eliminate the worry.

      1. PrettyDick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Does that eliminate the worry though? Once (if) Wilson comes in he could A. be on penalties again after King's miss B. affect his chances of scoring, due to him getting in the box more often.

        I think it's a really difficult choice personally

  4. Tshelby
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Anyone? rp

    Should I do this move?
    2FT

    Current squad:

    Fab, Button

  6. Four Season Wonder
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Bit of forward planning here...

    Whittled it down to three... Which mid-priced forward to go with for preparation for the BGW?

    Josh King
    Ashley Barnes
    Salomon Rondon

    1. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      If choosing now i would take either a or c but for just the 31, all three have decent fixtures (Barnes away to Pool in 30). I would prob wait to look at King vs Hudds as i consider him to be the best option, just. But Bournemouth are depleted and until signs of better offensive returns i´d be cautious. Also away form King is not good. Rondon, Barnes is close in terms of form and stats, fixtures in 31 are similar, with 33 still in the open for Rondon. If pushed before 30 i would punt on King

      1. Four Season Wonder
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        It is a move I am considering next GW. Funds are there for all.

        Does it change things if I say I am bringing in Brooks?

        Would that make Rondon more attractive?

        1. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Depends upon several factors. You will spread the risk but at the same time, Bournemouth could go riot and score four and both Brooks and King could be involved, even a g and a in one goal. I´ve already chosen Rondon, if i had the chance to FH or given an extra FT i had gone both Brooks and King but that´s just me and my playing style.

    2. SUPER 11
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Rondon.

  9. simong1
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Building for GW31. 2FT. Thinking of doing Pogba & Rashford > Brooks & Vardy. Is this a good move? Toying between removing Pogba and Son, but fancy Son to have a better chance of hauling versus Southampton than Pogba versus Arsenal.

    Fabianski – Button
    Robertson – TAA – Perreira – Doherty – AWB
    Salah – Son – Hazard – Pogba – F. Anderson
    Jimenez – Rashford - Crouch

    1. Four Season Wonder
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Good moves for next week. And puts money in the bank.

    2. SUPER 11
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Pogba is a season keeper. Even this GW he can haul. You will need him for sure in GW32
      Son can score against Southampton.

  10. puhd

    Who will score more over the next few GW, Vardy or Maddison?

    1. Barmak

      Vardy

  11. Gudjohnsen

      Personally Lanzini but might be thinking more about the player rather than Fpl.
      C is the safest pick.

    Cann vvd proove a differential or i should go for robbo

    1. Samwise
      1 month, 13 days ago

      go with robbo... if you want a differential, go with another team... not just a person who is likely to get less returns

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Well VVD has 30% ownership, so not really a differential.

    3. SUPER 11
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Some people are captaining VVD for this GW. So surely a big differential.

      1. PrettyDick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        For the captaincy then, not ownership. Was it suggestion on captaincy that was being asked?

      I'm waiting for 32 😉
      31 is going to be boring.

    A) Chelsea defender
    B) midprice midfielder (Maddison or Lanzini)

    Is anyone considering a gamble on Matip? Already own Robbo and Salah.

    Having a look at Matip and VVD in the last 4 games:-

    4 clean sheets

    Matip 3 BPS
    VVD 5 BPS

    3 attempts on goal each, though VVD netted 2 of them against a hapless Watford defence.

    I know TAA is an obvious double up but I'm trying to thing just a little outside the box. A goal could well be on it's way for Matip.

    With Gomez not expected back until 31st March it seems, and Lovren no return date, it could be a decent move. Certainly a move I'm pondering....

      Taa has too many ways to outscore matip imo.
      I don't have a pool spot in my team, gutted that I can't get Taa.

      If you can, I'd definitely suggest to get him.

        As much as I agree with you Amey, I often like to look for who I think could be about to come into points. TAA would be a safer pick and is owned in 3 of the top 4 spots in our ML. Myself being the one who doesn't own him. I just have a hunch that he could deliver a goal in the next couple of games. He's done himself no harm in the last month or so and could well be cementing a place for the season run-in. Cheers for the reply sir

    I have 1 FT I have to use. Will be FH'ing next week and keeping my MUN and WOL players for the double in GW 32.

    What to do?

    Patricio Guaita
    Robbo TAA Shaw AWB Bednarek
    Salah Son Pogba Anderson Gunnarsson
    Aguero Rashford Jimenez

    Currently weighing up:
    A) Anderson > Maddison
    B) Gunnarsson > Oriol Romeu

    Such unfashionable transfers but don't have anything else I like really.

    Pogba or Hazard this weekend? Both Arsenal and Everton are looking tighter at the back.

    A pogba Lanzini
    B Hazard Brooks

    1. Camzy
      • 8 Years

      A. Mun are the form team.

      Its a tough one. Id want Hazard for the blanks.

      Think its a week too early for Lanzini.
      Would wait and see how they line up this week.

    2 FT this week, building for BGW 31&33, FH in 32.

    Rashford & W. Hughes our for Arnautovic & H. Barnes?

    Bit of a punt with Arnie, but thinking he’ll start and fixtures look tasty!

  24. Efe Ambrose
    • 2 Years

    Lejeune to Schlupp or AWB?

  25. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    How does this look for GW31 & 33 for -4?

    Fab
    Robbo - TAA - Periera
    Salah - Haz - Brooks - 6.7m
    Vardy - Higuain - Rondon

    (Button - Pogba - Doherty - Awb)

    Looking at Maddison, Lanzini or Fraser for the last mid spot which I will decide next week.

    Think my team is good enough to keep Pogba & Doherty?

    Cheers! 🙂

    1. Amey

      Awesome.
      I think I've missed a trick by investing in mane instead of getting pool defense double up. That has enabled you to get Vardy+Higuain.

      I personally very like that team bro

      1. Amey
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I like that team*

        Mane can easily outscore Vardy & Higuain over the next 3-4 games imo. I think it'll be close.

        I honestly had no other option because ive been holding TAA since a long time.

        1. Amey
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Good for you 🙂

  26. TLF

    If Brooks and King were both the same price, who would you opt for any why ?

    1. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Is that a serious question? One is a 1 in 3 striker, the other is... Brooks.

      1. TLF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I think it's a reasonable question to be fair, King may be at risk of being rested for a game with Wilson/Solanke hanging about where as Brooks is fresh following his recovery from injury. I also think Brooks gets in the box a lot and plays as though he is a striker himself much of the time. Just signed a new contract, has plenty of attacking returns and he gets an extra point for a goal and CS point too.

    2. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I think there are better striker options for 31 than King but not many better than Brooks.

      1. TLF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I agree.

    3. Barmak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      But they’re not the same price...

      Anyway, King, on pens, higher ceiling.

      1. TLF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I excluded price from consideration as it doesn't matter on the weeks I'd be getting them board. I think King being on pens is a real bonus. Thanks for the response.
