Redmond starts but Valery missing for Southampton

Nathan Redmond (£5.4m) has been handed another start in the central attacking midfield role in which he thrived in Double Gameweek 34.

Having played as a makeshift centre-forward for long spells this season, the former Norwich man was paired with Josh Sims (£4.4m) last time out and got a brace.

Ralph Hasenhüttl has gone with the same system in attack, handing another start to striker Danny Ings (£5.4m) too.

However, there was disappointment for those Fantasy managers who had invested in Southampton defender Yan Valery (£4.1m) with this Double Gameweek in mind.

After coming off with cramp in Double Gameweek 34 and overcoming that this week, he ends up missing the game through illness.

Jannik Vestergaard (£4.6m) is also absent making for a back-three of Maya Yoshida (£4.1m), Jan Bednarek (£4.0m) and Jack Stephens (£4.2m).

In central midfield there are starts for budget midfielders Oriol Romeu (£4.2m) and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (£4.4m), who will be in a handful of Bench Boost squads.

Meanwhile, Newcastle’s relevance to the Fantasy Premier League scene continues to dwindle.

Salomón Rondón (£5.9m) remains the most popular Magpie in the game but his ownership has fallen again, now to just 6.5% overall.

Newcastle XI: Dubravka; Schar, Lascelles, Dummett; Manquillo, Ki, Hayden, Ritchie; Almiron, Perez; Rondon

Southampton XI: Gunn; Bednarek, Yoshida, Stephens; Ward-Prowse, Oriol Romeu, Højbjerg, Bertrand; Sims, Redmond; Ings.

      Most on here would have similar scores
      According to FFF Fix the top 1k only have 37 average.
      The total fpl average is just 18

      Plus you have those sunglasses look on the bright side!

        If you have TC, it's possible.

          No TC unfortunately

            Will be an uphill struggle then. Only top 4 or equal make the final.

                  Was planning to go with Mane but Kun, Sterling and Son all good options aswel

                    Yeah, best chance for you to make final but could hurt.

    -4 brought in Yoshida & Redmond. Yoshy had three good chances and Redmond possible assist #FPLisFrustrating

  7. Bookkeeper

    3 months, 28 days ago

    This season and previous ones have shown, selecting SGW players over DGW players will yield more points. Yet, we get drawn into the potential of DGW players, throwing rationalisation out the window.

    FPL is getting tougher, requires thinking out the box and independent thinking.

    Will you do the same next season?

    1. Numb
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Probably.

      1. Bookkeeper
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        i've kept a log of my mistakes this season. DGW errors has been noted. Think i will learn from this season DGW failings.

    2. Mo Mané Mo Problems

      Fraser, Wilson, King say hi

      1. Bookkeeper
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        bulk of those players had SGW last week and scored well.

        1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          I would be terrfied to tot up the points I lost on the WC gw34
          Vardy, VVD, Robertson, Pogba, Sterling were all sold...

    3. Limited & Mediocre Mana…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I'll do whatever makes most sense depending on how next season unravels. My DGW's have been a resounding success so far.

    4. Wolves Ay We

      Yes

      Next season I'm really looking forward to 100% playing my own game. That's not to say the Scoutcast picks aren't decent because most of the time I actually agree with them. Although I'm fairly new to FPL (Taking it seriously) and I've realised that going against your gut is the worst feeling playing this game. When you own your decisions, it's nowhere near as bad.

      1. Amey
        3 months, 28 days ago

        That's a valid point.
        I got KDB for Eriksen this gw when everyone here saying me not to. They were right & i was wrong. But had KDB outscored Eriksen i would have felt worse than I'm feeling right now. 🙂

        1. Deeney-is-a-god
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          To be fair KDB got injured so cant really say you were wrong ttransfer him in, maybe just unlucky cause he could have potentially outscored eriksen

          1. Amey
            3 months, 28 days ago

            Yep.
            Now at least i know I'm targeting Mane next gw to play alongside Firmino & Taa/Robbo.
            Will be a hit.

            Thank you for kind words Sir 🙂

    6. XabiAlonso
      • 4 Years

      24 points on my bench boost so far I will be trying something similar next year

    7. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I will just listen to the scoutcast very carefully listen to where the FFS herd will go and do the opposite! 😀

    8. popcoin
      • 7 Years

      Only 4 out of 11 in this week’s dream team are single gameweek...

  8. Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Best GW for the TC? What do you think?

    1. Limited & Mediocre Mana…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Liverpool 36 or save for 38 to try to finish on a green

    2. Amey
      3 months, 28 days ago

      With 2 Southampton Defense + foster on my bench, i think you're right about it 🙂
      Don't have TC left though

  9. Amey
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Which Defender under 5.2m next gw is good to get ?? (Non-pool)

      Seeing Brighton don't score anymore, Newcastle one.

      1. Amey
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Nice.
        Thank you TM 🙂

          Expect Brighton to score.

          1. Amey
            3 months, 28 days ago

            With the way my transfers going atm, they'll score 3/4 😀

  10. Wolves Ay We

    Have Mane and TAA, should I get for GW36:

    A) Firmino
    B) Salah

    1. dmkp

      B

    2. Rash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        For Salah out go Eriksen and Wilson (In comes Salah and 4,4 F)
        For Firmino out go Lloris and Wilson (in comes Firmino and 4,5 GK)

  11. Waylander

    Ryan and Vardy out worked well...

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years

      Nearly sold Duffy for Cathcart for a hit.

    2. TyroneGAA
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I sold Vardy for deeney before his red card then instead of bringing him back got Wilson.. aww well

    3. Amey
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Ha ha
      I did Duffy Eriksen >> KDB Yoshida (-4)
      Triple blow with Brighton CS, KDB Injury & Yoshida no CS + (-4)

      Mainly thanks to Brighton.

      1. Rash

        FPL is a funny old game

  13. Yoshioka

    Has a running total been kept of how many points the Scoutcast picks team would be on?

      1. Yoshioka
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Oh yeah, didn't think about the captaincy bit - though I recognise the team has wholesale changes each week so it doesn't function like an ordinary fpl team... I just figured one of the resident nerds might have totted up how many points it would have hauled altogether.

  14. Luizdouzi
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Next season the 1st two players in my team are Shane Duffy & Lewis Dunk. Legends!

    1. Amey

      Great that you have them bro 🙂

    2. Old Man

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Hopefully 2 points.

      1. Luizdouzi
        3 months, 28 days ago

        🙂 I know Salah will prove you wrong and the FA wrong with a hat trick

    2. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      It depends if he walks like an Egyptian or actually gets himself in decent positions to shoot.

  16. La Roja

    Bernardo Silva is 24 years old, phew

    Thought he was 30

    1. Amey
      3 months, 28 days ago

      He was playing with some flair today.
      Would be interesting to see number of dribbles he completed today.
      Was on fire.

      He's a genius. No wonder Pep rate him so highly
