The Complete Guide to our FPL Gameweek 38 tips and advice

And now, the end is near, and so I face the final curtain

It’s Gameweek 38 and the curtain is about to fall on another Premier League season. But before we dive headlong into an existential crisis and wonder what the heck are we going to do with our lives next week?! Let’s enjoy, if we can, our final fix of FPL for 2018/19. It’s been emotional.

The big news from Gameweek 37 was the dismissal of Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son. The South Korean was sent off for only the second time in his career against Bournemouth. Owned by 77% of the top 10,000 managers, many are now wondering who to replace him with.

David, Az, and Andy debated the options on this week’s Scoutcast, opinions were divided with Az calling Pogba the sensible choice but Andy wondering how Manchester United will pick themselves up after being “so bad” against Huddersfield. Instead, Andy fancies the Crystal Palace v Bournemouth match to offer up some goals.

Brandon from the Always Cheating Podcast agrees:

All signs point toward a buccaneering shootout. The Palace midfielder of choice is Milivojevic, who is essentially Zaha’s shooting boots—the Palace forward loves to go down for penalty calls, leaving Milivojevic to sweep the goals home. On the other side would be Ryan Fraser, who is second only to Eden Hazard this season for assists (13).

Who to get to replace Son? was only one of the questions tackled by our FPL Question Time Panel. With Wolves facing a testing encounter away to Liverpool, other pressing concerns included “Who to replace Jiménez with?” FFS moderator Gregor, an FPL manager with an excellent track record of three top 1,000 finishes in the last five seasons, points out that after recovering from a shoulder injury, Rashford could be an excellent pick:

I don’t think there is any doubt that he’s one of the players Solskjær is depending on for next season and I think local boy Rashford will be keen to end the season on a high against the creaky Cardiff defence.

However if selling Jiménez means taking a hit, former FPL winner Simon March offered some cautionary words:

Generally speaking, a hit for the final Gameweek of the season is risky due to the fact that you obviously only have the one chance for it to pay off. Even a couple of points at this stage of the season can have huge implications for ranks and mini leagues so sacrificing them isn’t something we should take lightly.

Our Scoutcasters agreed. It’s also worth noting for those FPL managers in and around the top 10,000 that Jiménez had a 91% ownership in Gameweek 37.

Continuing with the all-important team news – and thank you to both Neale and Rotation’s Alter Ego for patiently sifting through the 18 press conferences we had on Friday – Andrew Robertson “should be fine” after he picked up a knock in Liverpool’s epic comeback against Barcelona, the same goes for Jordan Henderson, while Mohamed Salah has been training and is expected to return.

Not such good news for Roberto Firmino however, who will miss the final game of the season.

The latest from Manchester City is that Kevin De Bruyne could be involved this afternoon, having taken part in training in the last two days. However, Fernandinho is out.

Outside of the top two, there was some noteworthy defensive news: reinforcing Andy and Brandon’s view that there could be goals in the Crystal Palace v Bournemouth match, Palace – already without James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakhocould also be without Scott Dann; And elsewhere, goalkeeper Joel Coleman will make his Huddersfield debut away to Southampton – can he possibly be as good as Mark Travers was on his debut for Bournemouth last week?

Owners of Southampton players, in particular their attacking assets, will be buoyed by the news. Recently crowned Southampton ‘Player of the Year’, Nathan Redmond has the underlying statistics to take full advantage. Not only is he selected for the Scout Picks but his captain credentials were even the subject of a members-only article. It makes for very impressive reading with perhaps only a low goal conversion rate letting him down.

Speaking of captain credentials, David’s Captain Sensible piece considers a number of armband candidates noting that:

There is a strong chance that Gameweek 38’s top points-scorer will come outside of the two Premier League title-related games.

Following Chelsea’s exertions on Thursday evening as their Europa League tie went to penalties, Leicester’s Jamie Vardy is attracting interest. No team has had more Shots on Target than Leicester’s 29 over the last four home gameweeks.

However, rather than in-form Leicester, it’s the somewhat out-of-sorts Manchester United who are predicted to do well in G-Whizz’s final DS stats, fixtures and clean sheet odds. A DS for United of 466 is enough to put them in third place behind only Liverpool (609DS) and neighbours Manchester City (595DS).

This is a prediction mirrored by Hutch_James in the Wisdom of the Crowd.

Finally, on the Scoutcast, Andy offered some wise words – and this applies to your captain pick as well:

If you’re ever going to wait to make your transfers, make it this week… every team is going to have to put their line-ups in at 2 o’clock, and we’ve had plenty of news in past seasons so wait wait wait.

No doubt he remembers that on the final day of the 2016/17 season Josh King famously posted on Instagram that he was missing out.

Grey Head opened his regular examination of The Great and The Good with a marginally less clichéd song lyric than I used at the outset of this article – The Final Countdown v My Way. Don’t let anyone accuse us of lacking in originality.

It was a surprise to discover that Mark, the highest ranked of The Great and The Good, has not owned Robertson all season. Remarkably, the first defender to score over 200 points in a single season never once graced his side. Although currently ranked inside the top 1,000 I doubt it’s a decision Mark regrets.

A man with a few regrets, and certainly enough to mention, is the FPL General. He’s had a season reminiscent of the well-known Eric Morecambe quote: “I’m playing all the right notes. But not necessarily in the right order.” Reflecting upon his season, the General observed:

With all the great content available to fantasy managers nowadays, the biggest challenge is managing yourself. Playing your own game has never been harder.

It’s a sentiment that was echoed by Jon Reeson, the record points-scorer in FPL:

My performance often seems to be hindered by worries about ownership and missing out, rather than going with a hunch, like I might have when I won.

Speaking of regrets I’ve had a few of my own this past week. The Dutch footballer and outstanding FPL manager, Jordie van der Laan – the subject of a recent FFS Community article – was featured on the BBC after he was sacked by his club for attending the Spurs v Ajax Champions League first leg in London without permission. The phrase “Well that escalated quickly” has rarely felt more apt.

Having arranged the match ticket for him, and then attracting the TV camera’s attention by making a VAR sign, I do feel a modicum of responsibility. Jordie responded to the situation with his usual good humour by requesting a ticket to the second leg reasoning that he is, after all, now free. It worked. Following his appearance on Dutch television, a journalist offered him a ticket.

What next for Jordie? Well I can exclusively reveal that he has been asked to take part in the Dutch version of Love Island! Not exactly the career move he is looking for. Quite how this has gone from FPL to Love Island is mind-boggling.

Anyway, in an effort to get Jordie’s football career back on track I would like to share his showreel. There’s an obvious comparison to Peter Crouch given his height, skill, and passion for FPL. Who knows? Maybe Burnley will have a vacancy to fill this summer and Jordie could be the perfect fit. After the events of the past week, nothing would surprise me.

Lastly, for those craving a summer fix of Fantasy Football, Meltens previewed Gameweek 8 in Fantasy Allsvenskan, while TallestJohn looked ahead to Gameweek 6 in the Eliteserien Fantasy.

COMMUNITY TOURNAMENTS

Congratulations to LOKOMOTIV who lifted the Fantasy Football Scout Cup following a narrow 6-point victory over FFS moderator Rotation’s Alter Ego. As Neale revealed in midweek, the final proved to be a tight affair going down to the last match on Monday evening, where a goal from Agüero – captained by Rotation’s Alter Ego – could well have swung the tie in his favour. In the end LOKOMOTIV’s decision to captain Aubameyang proved decisive.

In our third-place play-off, Skogen89 claimed the £50 Amazon voucher as he defeated Ibra-gum 55-43. Well done to all four managers for making it to the final Gameweek of the competition.

In TorresMagic’s Last Man Standing competition, Alan Robertson (aka Villaweeal) emerged triumphant. In a cagey final round which saw all four finalists suffer captain blanks, Alan had 12-point contributions from defenders Laporte and Doherty, together with a goal from Salah, to thank for this 3-point victory. He becomes the sixth winner of the competition, congratulations to him and the other three finalists.

Adam Levy (aka Elvy) the leader of both our main FFS League and our FFS Members League, has now been world number one for the past nine Gameweeks. His closest rival Falah Allawati took a 4-point hit and Triple Captained Agüero, however a rare home blank from the Argentine means Adam still has a substantial 60-point lead going into the final Gameweek.

Yesterday morning, David took at look at how the top two teams compare in the FPL title race – could Salah prove to be the ultimate differential?

A community article from RedLightning examines Adam’s tremendous season. It includes a look at his chip usage and hits, and highlights just how well he’s done since the start of 2019.

Going into the final Gameweek, Adam has a chance to beat the record FPL points total set by FFS member Jon Reeson (aka Westfield Irons) in the 2009/10 season. In a separate community article this week, Jon was kind enough to answer my questions about his record points season.

Mark has increased his lead in the FFS Mods & Cons to 27 points, and moves up to 552nd overall. Rotation’s Alter Ego still occupies second spot with G-Whizz some way behind in third.

Craig Till Reumert is the new leader in RedLightning’s Top 10k Any Season mini-league following an impressive Gameweek score of 71 (-4). He’s up to 72nd overall. This is Craig’s 12th FPL season, and he’s had four previous top 10,000 finishes. He was 109th in our Live Hall of Fame after Gameweek 36 and is most likely even higher now. Andy Sullivan drops to second.

Andrew Hughes takes over at the top of RedLightning’s January to May League, although the previous leader, Vimal Krishnan, is level with him on points. This is Andrew’s sixth FPL season, and at 322nd overall he will easily eclipse his best finish of 7,772 from 2015/16. He’s had 7 green arrows in the past 9 Gameweeks, rising nearly 19,000 places since Gameweek 28.

Ted Maw (aka Rotation’s Alter Ego) increased his lead in RedLightning’s The Last Ten Gameweeks mini-league to 18 points. 8 green arrows in the past 10 Gameweeks have taken him from 46k in Gameweek 27 to 1,405 now.

Andrew Hughes has scored 706 points since Gameweek 29 compared to Ted’s 686, so if Andrew had entered The Last Ten Gameweeks mini-league then he would be leading that too.

Finally, it was announced back in January that the 2019/20 season will see the return of the FFS Head-to-Head leagues. This week Mir, who will be running the leagues, gave us an update – the entry details are as follows:

When FPL opens for the 2019-2020 season a league code will be created on FPL called ‘FFS Head-To-Head League’, which will act as the entry form. We will then take those entries and associate HOF rankings with them, to start putting people into Divisions and Leagues. Right now, entry will close with the start of GW1.

If you are running a community tournament and would like the latest scores included in future Community Round-Ups, please email us a summary of the current leaders and a link to your league, spreadsheet or head-to-head competition at geoff@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk

    I'm currently winning by 12 points in my ML, rival doesn't have Sterling but has Aguero and Hazard, who do I captain Aguero or Sterling? And what keeper do I play, Lloris or Foster?

    Thanks

    1. stupendous
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Aguero
      Foster

    2. kuzser
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Kun to block

    3. Tshelby
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Aguero and Lloris

    4. Halftime Lemon
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Captain Aguero to cover rival. I would normally pick Lloris in goal, but this week who knows??

    5. RedLightning
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Since you're ahead, and assuming that you expect the rest of your team to score as well as your rival's, you should play safe by captaining Aguero and playing Lloris.
      Watford don't do clean sheets, but Lloris has kept 3 of them in his last 4 home matches.

      nobody remembers a top '7k'

      Top 5K is a target, top 10K is as good as top 7k when it comes to summarising your 'career'

        1 month, 15 days ago

        You should retake your gcse maths. Top 10k is most definitely not 7k. In fact it is 3k inferior. Just saying. 🙂

    Ramadhan might not give any effect on Salah & Mane, but surely Kun or Sterling will have more stamina & energy..So which one? Aguero(C) or Sterling (C)

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 5 Years

      Kun

    1 FT need to catch 25 points up, suggestions? Rivals team in () where differs...

    Lloris
    Kolasinac (Robbo) - TAA - Valery
    Salah (mane) - Sterling - BSilva (pogba) - Jota (jwp)
    Kun - Rash (Wilson) - Jimi

    1. The Wizard of Ozil
      • 9 Years

      Jota -> Redmend caption Salah and hope for the best

    2. Wrench

    Are the scouts going to post RMT scores in Article ?

    "As the Captain Sensible article has come out before the main bulk of press conferences for Gameweek 38, we are waiting until later today to update it and include it in this article."

              I would go Wilson (tc) if I was you...

            2. 7shadesofsmoke
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              thanks, just inside the top 2K now so a big haul from Vardy would probably put me there - i just fancy Chelsea to have their collective foot off the gas given the midweek exertions and Leicester to go out on a high. Wilson also in my thoughts but went with hardy earlier in the season and he rewarded me big time so hoping he ca do it again for me today 🙂

              How are you doing this year?

              1. Christina.

                Excellent, hope I can get there once in my life.

                Doing a lot better after 500k last yr. 17k at the moment. I've won my main ML and h2h. Now in final of a fa cup tournament as well...opponent has 2 FT's and TC!

                  awesome! great season all around then! did you change anything (strategy wise) this year vs last?

                  1. Christina.
                    • 9 Years
                    1 month, 15 days ago

                    Not really...I became a member but I doubt that made a change as I've had 6 sub 10k's OR's without membership.

                    Luck played a part I think. Also had health issue last yr.

                    1. 7shadesofsmoke

                      sorry to hear that, hope you're all clear of it now.

                      I always felt that the community boards were enough to benefit your rank but membership was part of supporting the people who make all of this possible - barely used the site last year and my rank slipped away. Bit of a lack of interest, other things going on.. I'll be back as a paying member next season again for sure. I think the scouts are well worth it.

    1. Kiwivillan

      Not sure Kola even starts

  27. 'Broadsword Calling Da…

    1 month, 15 days ago

    Hi, sorry, why is Jiminez being so heavily sold please? If needed then, Is it worth taking him out for -4 and bring in Rondon or Long (my budget)? Thanks

    1. 7shadesofsmoke
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      i sold for Wilson because i fancy the fixture to be a high scoring one and wilson to pick up a lot of points. Jimenez vs one of the best defences in the league doesn't inspire as much faith - but i probably wouldn't have done it for a hit

      1. 'Broadsword Calling Da…
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        understood, thanks. It's all food for thought.

      2. Christina.
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        not sure why people this will be high scoring....

        1. FPL DONKEY
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Because Crystal Palace are bad at home, Bournemouth have scored 8 goals in the last two away matches and Crystal Palace are missing 2, potentially 3, first choice centre-backs.

        2. 7shadesofsmoke
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          palace home form and defensive injuries, bournemouth away form, and its the last game of the season so traditionally there are a few cricket scores among the fixtures. Hoping this is one of them

          1. Christina.
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            my fear its gonna Watf vs Wham

            1. 7shadesofsmoke
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              yeah, could so easily be that one - or both.

              Wanted Arno but settled on Bmth - its the local team and that was enough to swing it - double the joy if we smash palace 🙂

    2. Kiwivillan
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Why am I benching? Tough fixture. I'm playing Hojbjerg instead. Same amount of goals 1 and assists 2 in last 7 games

    3. AuFeld
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      LIV has the best defense and they are playing at home. There is a slim chance of Jimenez scoring with better options out there. I would be tempted to go for Wood, Wilson, or Long in your position.

      1. 'Broadsword Calling Da…
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Hi Aufeld, okay yeah thanks. I was caught in price falls last night, so either need to take a -4 or just leave Jiminez in the team and instead of doing Kolas > Laporte, may just need to bring Kompany in instead. Good luck all

  28. Jinswick
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Any 5.5m defender worth a -4 over Doherty? I really can't see much for Doherty today. Kompany or Shaw the best bets?

    1. 7shadesofsmoke
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      no on the last day of the season - clean sheets are rarer than an average gameweek and the 4 point hit won't be as easy to recover on a single gameweek vs a stretch of games as you'd usually have mid-season

    2. Tshelby
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Kompany wouldn't go near ManU

    3. gaurava1216
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      kompany only

  29. how now brown cow
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Should Son, Duffy, Jota to Pogba, TAA, JWP for -4 pay off?

    1. gaurava1216
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      yes

  30. Gassemannen
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    What to do with this team? 1FT, 0.4 ITB. -4?

    Foster (Ryan)
    Alderv - Kiko F - Shaw* (Doherty - Dunk)
    Salah (C) - Mane - Delou - Jota (Son*)
    Laca*? - Jimi - Zaha

    1. gaurava1216
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Hold Lacca--- if he starts he can get something....

      Shaw to Kompany and you should be good.
