Scout Squad

The Scout Squad for FPL Blank Gameweek 31

This regular precursor to the Scout Picks returns ahead of Blank Gameweek 31.

In this article, our four regular panellists each submit an 18-man squad of Fantasy assets, with the focus exclusively on the coming Gameweek.

The 72 nominations listed below will be narrowed down to a squad of 14 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83.5m) ahead of the forthcoming deadline at 14:00 GMT on Saturday afternoon.

Paul, Peter, Joe and Az expand on their notable selections and omissions in the article below.

Paul said…

There is an obvious nucleus of form players for Gameweek 31’s reduced fixture list.

Five of my squad – Eden Hazard, Jamie Vardy and Sadio Mane, as well as Bournemouth pair Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson – all delivered double-digit returns last weekend.

Along with Mohamed Salah, they are likely to populate many Free Hit squads, which raises the importance of seeking out differentials.

Aaron Cresswell, James Tarkowski and Gonzalo Higuain are all under 6% ownership in FPL and could be standout overlooked picks.

In Cresswell’s case, it’s more about the opposition, with West Ham set to host travel-sick Huddersfield.

The Terriers seem to have a particular weakness on Cresswell’s flank since moving to a midfield diamond in Gameweek 27.

Huddersfield sit in the bottom two for both chances conceded and crosses conceded down their right-hand side over the last four Gameweeks.

Cresswell, meanwhile, is second only to Robert Snodgrass for crosses (20 to 30) in the Hammers’ last six and should be given license to roam forward on Saturday afternoon.

Tarkowski has already found the net on three occasions ahead of Burnley’s home clash with Leicester.

The Clarets’ centre-back also boasts some strong recent numbers – no other defender bettered his five attempts in the box in the last four Gameweeks.

Given that ten of Burnley’s 34 goals have been headers, Tarkowski’s contribution could be key against the Foxes.

With managers rushing to Wilson and Vardy up front, and Hazard’s appeal on the rise after his late leveller at home to Wolves, Higuain has mainly been ignored.

Yet since arriving at Stamford Bridge, his total of 25 shots on goal is more than any other player.

Indeed, only Sergio Aguero – and marginally, at that – has surpassed his efforts in the box, by 18 to 17, over the last six Gameweeks.

Away to an Everton defence that fell apart spectacularly at Newcastle, Higuain can add to his three-goal haul on Sunday afternoon.

Joe said…

Despite the reduced fixture list there are still plenty of options across all positions this week – well, except among goalkeepers that is. Between the sticks there are really only two options this week, West Ham’s Lukasz Fabianski and Bournemouth’s Artur Boruc.

The Hammers man has two clean sheets in his last four home matches and hosts a Huddersfield side that has mustered a mere eight goals on the road.

Meanwhile, the Cherries stopper takes on Newcastle at home and also has a pair of shutouts over the same timeframe in front of his own fans.

Tripling up on Liverpool and Chelsea, who travel to Fulham and Everton respectively, looks vital this week. But a key consideration for the Scout Picks committee will be whether to double up on their assets in attack or defence.

I marginally favour an attacking double-up of Liverpool’s Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to exploit Fulham’s awful defensive form, particularly at home. Over their last four Craven Cottage run-outs, they have conceded a record 65 shots and 48 close-range efforts.

In contrast, I’m backing a defensive double-up for Chelsea given Everton’s far better home form, with two clean sheets in their last four Goodison Park encounters. The Blues erratic attack of late is also a concern. While they recently beat Spurs 2-0, they worryingly laboured to a 1-1 draw against Wolves last time out.

With three assists, two clean sheets and four bonus over his last five matches, Cesar Azpilicueta offers an excellent range of points for our selection.

David Luiz also gets the nod, with a goal and bonus over the same timeframe and three double-digit hauls this season. The Brazilian is also among the top five defenders over their last quartet of matches in terms of shots in the box.

Top of that list is Harry Maguire, with five close-range efforts. While I expect Leicester to concede when they travel to Burnley, the England centre-back’s aerial threat at set-pieces could be key given the Clarets’ frailty at dead-ball situations.

Elsewhere, Callum Wilson and Ashley Barnes top my forward selection having scored three in their last four home matches.

Az said…

A limited selection of players this week but I still think there are some decent differentials out there for anyone looking to close the gap on mini-league leaders or who are seeking a boost in the rankings. My advice is get in the ‘core’ players (who sit high on my list) and have a bit of a punt on a couple of low-owned players who could deliver this Gameweek.

Of all the games, it’s Liverpool versus Fulham which looks the most plum fixture for the highly owned players. Owners of three Liverpool players are surely licking their lips at the prospect of seeing their men go up against Fulham, who ship goals for fun. The question is, who looks set to prosper?

I’ve gone for set-piece taker Trent Alexander-Arnold, the red-hot Sadio Mane and the a-bit-out-of-sorts Mohamed Salah, who I’ve picked top of my list but do have some doubts about after Wednesday’s game – as I’m sure many of you do, too.

James Maddison and Marko Arnautovic look like good punts for anyone willing to roll the dice. Maddison is creating chances for fun and Arnautovic should hopefully lead the line after a very poor Hammers performance against Cardiff. These guys can go alongside your West Ham defenders and Jamie Vardy, all of whom you’ve got in your teams already, right?

The one player I really wouldn’t want to be without this week is Callum Wilson, who erupted back on the scene last week. I think he’s a better pick than Ryan Fraser, who has been poor recently. I reckon Wilson is the stand-out option for any brave managers who aren’t planning on giving a Liverpool player the armband this week.

Peter said…

With apologies to any fans of the Terriers and the Lillywhites, I’m writing your sides off even in this truncated Gameweek, which gives me just eight teams to work with and also some inevitable conflicts of interest, with defensive selections up against attacking choices in some cases.

It’s also worth reminding readers that we’re limited to a maximum of three selections per team, so it’s not simply a case of listing, say, the likely first XI for Liverpool.

There is a strong English core to my defensive choices (assuming that Declan Rice completes his “switch” to Gareth Southgate’s side over the next month), with Lucas Digne joining from across the Channel and my selections are supported by compelling statistics from the excellent recent Free Hit article on defenders.

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s stunning rate of creating chances (ten in the last four Gameweeks) sees him top of the bill.

Meanwhile, Leicester’s visit to Turf Moor is a tough one to call but both Harry Maguire and James Tarkowski are top of the (active) defenders list for shots in the box with five apiece recently. The pair also tie with three goals and one assist for the season, although Leicester are (perhaps surprisingly) bottom of the table for goals scored from corners.

Rice carries a slight goal threat in his “OOP” midfield role, but the main reason for doubling up on the Hammers defensive pair of the youngster and Łukasz Fabiański is, of course, the abject away form of Huddersfield, with Jan Siewert’s men failing to get on the scoresheet in any of their last five road trips.

Those of us with both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané will have to make our own peace with our captaincy choice this week, assuming we rely on the consistent failing of Fulham’s obliging defence, which has conceded at least two goals in all ten of their league matches in 2019 and last kept out the aforementioned Huddersfield, back in December.

The Egyptian’s recent struggles in front of goal are well documented but it’s also worth highlighting Mane’s Jekyll and Hyde home and away form, with over 80% of his goals coming at Anfield. Perhaps, then, we should be open to a differential option when we peruse this week’s Captain Sensible article?

Callum Wilson returned with a goal and assist this week and boasts a points per match score of 5.7 over the season, level with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and just behind Harry Kane and a certain Argentine who plies his trade at the Etihad.

Wilson’s impressive link-up play with Ryan Fraser ensured double-digit hauls for the pair of them against Huddersfield and, although the Magpies are likely to prove a tougher nut to crack, the fact that this weekend’s clash occurs at the Vitality Stadium should not be overlooked. Twenty-six of the Cherries’ 41 goals have been scored on their own turf, with only title-chasing Liverpool and Manchester City and, er, Southampton, denying them.

And let’s not forget Ashley Barnes, a stalwart in my own team since Gameweek 23 who, like the cartoon The Cat Who Came Back, has found himself rejected and maligned but generally finds a way to return and who has helped himself to five goals and one assist in that time.

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).

Last week, Bøss star narrowly beat our Scout Picks 68-67 with a 3-4-3 line-up of Guaita (1); Alexander-Arnold (2), Chilwell (2), Robertson (1); Anderson (1), Brooks (3), Sterling (21), Mane (14); Vardy (16), Aguero (5), Zaha (2).

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

The Community Champion for Gameweek 31 will be announced in our Scout Picks on Friday.

    7. b91jh
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      45 points behind my ML rival and he is using FH this week while i am not.
      Surely he will include Mane Salah Hazard in the squad(?)

      1. Salah or Mane as captain?
      2. Any reasons to go for Fraser instead of Haz for Gw31+33?

      1. Jimmy Boy
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I'd personally rather have Fraser than Hazard for 31/33

        1. kalmoffit
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Why? He hasn't any points again anyone, cept Hudd

          1. Game Over
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Wilson and Brooks have returned from injury which will help Fraser.

            Bournemouth have 2 home games 31 33.

            I'm having Fraser and Haz tho.

    8. Baines on Toast...
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Are Free Hits included in ownership and transfer totals?

    9. Norfolk&Chance
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      What's projected score this week based on the template FH squad?

      65 ish i reckon...

      1. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        RMT says 60s but I’m guessing something around 45.

      2. Snevitz
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        50 to 65 depending on captaincy success I would imagine.

    10. Forza Papac
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      OR 273 owns two players with fixtures in 31 (Diop, TAA) and has already used FH and WC.

      1. Forza Papac
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Had an OR of 23 in GW15

        1. The 5% Team
            3 months, 4 days ago

            hmm...interesting to follow for the next couple of GWs

          Did you just randomly pick someone in the top 500? Why do you know this??:)

        3. Pep Pig
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Apparently his first season at FPL as well. His rank will plummet drastically I've no doubt

          1. Snevitz
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Not sure about plummeting, he'll still be comfortably in the top 5k.

            1. Pep Pig
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Yes I'll admit I was slightly dramatic there 😀

        4. Jᴀʀᴠish
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Going to be plenty like this that are going to be swallowed up. Does anyone know the percentage of top 10k that have used 2nd WC and FH?

            1. Game Over
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Good! Their tears will taste like honey.

          Could do four transfers for -8 and get a team with Diop, TAA, Salah, Mane, Higuain, Wilson.

          Could still get an average score with all those if he captains the right one.

        6. KingOllie
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          i was rank 129 in the world.. i fell to 10k. Back to 2k now with my chips ready to get back in the top1k!

      2. Mattymo23
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Aguero to Wilson for a -4 to complete my starting 11? I'm worried Wilson will score heavily.

        1. frenchfries
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          As long as you dont have a huge amount saved up in Aguero, then i would definitly do it! Getting Wilson for Aguero myself

      3. Jimmy Boy
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        A) Luiz, Fraser, Tielemans
        B) Azpilicueta, Brooks, Maddison

        1. davidmcnamara
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          b

        2. frenchfries
          • 2 Years

          Close one, maybe B

        fabianski lossl
        lui, taa, lascelles wb* bennett*
        mane, salah, andersen, pogba*, hojberg*
        jimenez* aguero* rashford*

        should I do rashford and bennett to wilson and digne for a -4? that would give me 9 players playing this week

        1. frenchfries
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I would consider Bournemouth defender over Digne if you cant afford Chelsea defender.

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

          yep

      5. CliveTilds
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Jiminez + Pogba > Wilson + Fraser -8? Would field me 11. All chips remaining.

          1. Jimmy Boy
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I'd pick one of Wilson and Fraser for a -4. If you take a -8, you're relying on a goal or assist from either of them just to balance the books.

          2. frenchfries
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Would just do Jimenez > Wilson

        • frenchfries
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Aguero, Son, Bennett -> Wilson, Hazard, Azpilicueta (-4)?

          Will give me this team:

          Alisson
          Robertson Azpilicueta Pereira
          Salah Hazard Anderson Hayden
          Vardy Wilson Barnes

          Boruc Pogba Doherty AWB

        • Slitherene
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Not FPl wise, who is a better player according to you guys?

          A) Mane
          B) Salah

          1. frenchfries
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            B

            They are both very different..but salah for me.that assist mo.gave to mane for example I don't think mane can pull off. There's a tendency for peoole to think the narrative around mo was he didn't make it at Chelsea, disappeared then had that one amazing season but he has been consistently good for years and played at a higher level than mane. He was fiorentinas best player and romas when he played in serie A.

            1. Irbox ⚽
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Mane doesn’t have the vision or ability to pull off a pass like that. Doesn’t he have like 2 assists all season, both in the same match? Just awful

          3. Irbox ⚽
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Can’t be serious? Mane can’t pass, or assist. He is in red hot goal scoring form at the moment but he is very one dimensional and stagnates the attack..

            1. boc610
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Eh ..lets be fair now...he does not stagnate the attack. Not for a second.

          4. Tcheco
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 4 days ago

            It's close this year but Salah edges it overall because of last season. Salah was a contender for Ballon d'or & Mane hasn't had a season where he was as decisive as Mo in 17/18

            1. Tcheco
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Having said that, I enjoy watching Mane play more than Mo. He's a menace....

          5. Amey
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Salah better player all round.
              But i really like Mane too. Back from his Liverpool B team days 😉

            • boc610
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Manes ability to beat a player from a standing start is astonishing, its the speed at which he does it

            • KingOllie
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Salah is better as a footballer

            Who scores more over the blanks?

            A) Azpi
            B) Rice

            1. Tcheco
              • 1 Year

              Just watched extended highlights of the CL match Bayern vs Liverpool.
              Mane is far more confident atm & getting into scoring positions than Mo Salah.
              © Is going to be key this gw 😮

                    Cheers mate
                    I'm on Salah © atm.
                    But not sure after watching those highlights.
                    Hopefully he's fit

                Fraser or Hazard this week?

                Mane playing as a central striker.

                  Is Mane due a rest this weekend ?

                    Probably. Injury concern

                  3 months, 4 days ago

                  Either of these worth a - 4?
                  A) rashford to vardy
                  B) Pogba to hazard

                    Yeh both moves are sound

                  -12 here worthwhile considering its 3x gw 31/33 players?

                  Current gw31 team:

                  TAA/Robertson/perierra
                  Salah, hazard, Fraser
                  Rondon

                  Plan:
                  Out: Aguero, jiminez, camarasa
                  In: vardy, Wilson, lanzini (punt)

                    Currently fielding 10, but one is Lascelles. Which should I do?

                    A) Sterling to Haz (-4)
                    B) Jimenez to Wilson (-4)
                    C) Both (-8)

                    Real Madrid agree €50m deal with Porto to make Eder Militao the first summer signing for Zinedine Zidane.

                    Zizou moving fast.

                      Does he play in Hazard's position?

                            Ah ok - probably why I've never heard of him.

                          Nope, he's a CB.

                          A bit much for someone with only 50 professional matches, but the potential is def there. Hes having an amazing season for Porto this year.

                            You have to pay more for potential now though, the big clubs especially.
                            Absolutely a future star of the game, and very much a Real Madrid type of player.

                      Which one?

                      1. Jim to Wilson -4
                      2. Jim Doh to Wilson Azpi -8

                      Or Fraser instead of Wilson? But have Brooks already

                          People are saying Salah has no form, hes been playing well just not finishing. Goals will come .

                          Mane is the beneficiary of Salahs creativity

                        Pick any two from below for GW 31/33

                        A) Azpilicueta
                        B) Brooks

                        What do you think the average points hit will be in the top 10k? -6?

                          3 months, 4 days ago

                          -6 seems reasonable.

                        why is everyone ignoring Arnautovic?

                        -i don't agree with form as this was because of limited minutes due to injury/illness
                        -surely a starter when healthy and has the better fixture? (compared to vardy,wilson) - also a better player IMO

                            It's about previous experience.

                            Is he definitely going to start? He tempts me if he does.

                            Hasn't started for the last few weeks, and no reason to think that'll change this weekend.
                            Hasn't returned any points for about 8-9 weeks either.
                            Wilson and Vardy have better fixtures over 31/33 than Arnie does.

                          As I am free hitting I could go for Arnie and have a decent sub such as Maddison if he doesn’t play.

                          What scares me about doing that is if Arnie gets a cameo and scores 1 point and I end up benching loads of points

                          Do you think it is worth the risk? Do you think he will start?

                            You could do that with Alonso. If he plays, he might get you points. Won't come on for a 1 pointer.
