Want to work with Fantasy Football Scout? Get in touch…

As another frantic Fantasy season draws to a close, our eyes are already looking beyond the cup finals and towards the prospect of doing it all again in the 2019/20 season.

And like every club management team, we’re planning ways we can bolster Fantasy Football Scout’s squad for the coming season.

Last year we put out a general scouting call for general Fantasy Football “talent” and we were overwhelmed by the response, leading to a host of new faces joining both in the first team squad as well as supporting capacity (including the incredibly Premier League panel).

So now we’re going to do it all again!

We do have a few specific areas we’re looking to strengthen – so skills in video/YouTube presenting/production, podcasting and social media management are definitely of interest.

However, ultimately it’s passion and ability we’re after, so if you can write Fantasy Football articles, have experience in a Fantasy Fantasy Football community or even any community then we’d love to hear from you.

The specifics of the roles will vary and depend on the people we see, there could be one or two full-time gigs and likely some part-time contracts involved, so, ideally, you’d perhaps be someone looking for freelance work on a fixed long or short-term basis.

But even if you’ve just fancied writing an article a week and have an idea to sell us, then please get in touch.

We do work remotely but, ideally, we’d like to work together in person on occasion – so if you are based in/around London (or able to work there some days), that is an advantage and something you should indicate when showing interest.  

Finally. based on last year’s flood of talent I need to stress we may take a little time to look through and respond and might not be able to get back to everyone. But if that doesn’t put you off and you want to get involved please drop us a line at jobs@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk

If you can, please include samples of your work – albeit a link to an article, website, Twitter channel or YouTube channel. CV’s are good too but not essential.

    Can't believe the scouts were tipping Fulham. My god

      You do know why they picked Fulham right?

    At least we know that we should Ayoze Perez every season for last 6-7 GWs....

    One change I would love next season would be hidden GW transfers, team value & money in bank.

      That's 3 changes not 1 😛

      Paranoia 😀

        Nobody copies me but would make the game better given the transfer spy tools etc.

        1. Amey

          Are there tools 😮 ??

            Pen and paper works especially when an obvious sell.

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              6 months, 29 days ago

              Yeah. Agreed.

      No more detective work then 😛

        Would make the update better too.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      100% Agreed! Predicting people's transfers is a violation of the most basic manager privacy rights.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 29 days ago

        Spying on transfers is one tool I decided very early on I will never ever implement, completely against the spirit of the game. Now, anyone can just copy a starting team of one of the veterans who announce it, then spy on their transfers and follow them exactly..

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 29 days ago

          Yep, little skill in that. I guess it counts as filtering info or having blinkers on.

  8. DV8R
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 29 days ago

    Finished rank 66k.

    Was a tough season... First WC really screwed up my team but I had to play it or else it would have been wasted. Was in the top 10k at one point but was a gradual decline since then.

    1. Batchain
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      I agree, I found it a tough season and had my worst finish for ages. Wasn't until my SECOND wildcard that I started making any progress, which is just a bit too damn late. It seemed that there were few teams that got it together for long reliable runs. Just when you'd jumped on Wolves or Everton or whoever they'd collapse.

  9. Amey

    Who is not going to have Taa in their team next season 😀
    This guy is awesome !!
    Taa + Robbo was a great ploy from second WC.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 29 days ago

      87 points between them from gw 34 😮

    2. jia you jia you

      he'll be worth every cent of the 7.0 🙂

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 29 days ago

        Yep
        6.5 taa
        7.5 Robbo

        1. Hart-ake
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 29 days ago

          I think TAA will be 7- would snatch your hand off for 6.5.

          1. ritzyd
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            6 months, 29 days ago

            Yep. 7 for TAA and 8 for vvd/robbo likely

          That would be too high...

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            6 months, 29 days ago

            Yeah
            Too much money but worth it

          • 3 Years
          6 months, 29 days ago

          There is no real reason why TAA would be cheaper than the other guys tho. Not anymore!

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            6 months, 29 days ago

            Absolutely

    3. Lazaretti
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      Can't say for sure. Depends on many things. TAA of course one of the players that I would like to include in my team next year too.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year

        If pool looks anywhere like this year in defense, I'd pounce on double Defense

    What a season it has been. Roller coaster ride. Started fantastic with almost 200 points in first 2 gws. Was going good. Then christmas came and sterling sane combo had me drop really bad. A mediocre comeback later. Took some unnecessary hit too. Overall was fun. Thanks everybody for this ride of highs and lows. Can't wait to join next season.
    Had my share of good and bad luck too. Jumping on wrong time on mikhi, sterling, son was the worst. Robbo to TAA to robbo was chasing points which was bad on my part. A few good ones like RAM, richarlison early, salah mane combo early on were really awesome. Thanks again everybody. Cheers!!

    1. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Good ol RAM - does not even feel that it existed and dominated this season.

    2. ZimZalabim
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      similar season here started off quite well got up to just outside the top 10 k then wildcarded sterling sane in with kane and auba and got a bit stubborn that theyll come good derailed my entire season couldnt really recover, but had some great early days with RAM and the other u mentioned and fraser also.

      Cheers all

      hopefully Pool

      Something for them would be nice after having a brilliant season

    3. ZimZalabim
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 29 days ago

      hope its liverpool
      but its gonna be tough
      spurs have no pressure as such they are the underdogs never been here before and kane shd be back fit
      lets see how it goes
      I think the break is too long 18 days after the last game seems a bit much

    Thank you everyone for an amazing season. Finished in my preseason goal of top 50K, managed to scrape to a 46k rank. So many highs and lows throughout this season, but ultimately its been fantastic. Will be back next season, 100%!

      My first season playing Fpl so set myself a target to finish inside the top 100k and see where that got me in my cash league... well thanks to this site (and a few other pods) i managed to finish at 14.5k and win my ML by a healthy margin... it’s helped me to get an idea of the template and more importantly where to differ from it to make progress!
      Thanks again and enjoy the summer!

      Only really played half the season. Took it seriously from GW20 - rose from around 500k to 80k. More than happy given I missed out badly on the doubles.

      Next season I’ll take it seriously from the start and probably get the same result.

    • Miniboss

      Very glad to have a break from fpl. It was surprisingly tough season, felt like a marathon where you get a diarrhea midway. Lots of things to learn though, looking forward to next season.

      Saying that, I believe I'll start with these 5 guys and build the rest of the team around them:

      TAA
      Laporte
      Sterling
      KdB
      Pukki

      1. Amey

      Glad to finish second OR in FPL career. Finished in 2.2k whreas my best one was 1.2k. BTW, consecutive 10k finish is really satisfactory. Thanks to all folks!!!

      Beat my best ever rank by 11k places this year, was a bit disappointed to make up 700 places on the last day and finish just outside the top 1000 but still a fantastic season in the end, hoping to consolidate next year with another top10k finish.

    • Utter Monday

      My best ever season just outside top 2k. Big thanks to the Scout Crew and especially Scoutcast. (Get well soon Joe). It helped to know you guys aren’t infallible. The info was terrific but you have to pick and choose what you go with. I swear my starting team came from Az suggestions but I went with it he didn’t. Impatient already for next season.

    • Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I was having a nose at how Mark Suthens got into the top 1k-2k

      https://www.anewpla.net/fpl/report-test/lander.php?fplID=4668

      He took a similar amount of hits to me - he took 50
      I took 52.
      Yet he managed to get 65 more points than the likes of me.

      https://www.anewpla.net/fpl/report-test/lander.php?fplID=47710

      What's the difference? 'Captain Choice' ironically given my username.
      Sutherns nailed his captain choices.
      He 665 points from captains v 577 for me.
      Even more shocking to me was that when all Captains points - doubles and trebles were taken away -
      Southerns was on 2113 base points.
      I was on 2100 base points.

      I picked 15 different captains (even Fabianski at one stage)
      In contrast what did Southerns do?

      Just:
      Salah, Sterling, Hazard, Vardy, Murray, Kane, Aguero.

      Seven captains in total, Not only that, he only captained Vardy, Murray, Kane, Aguero. - once each.

      So his 'go to' captains were 'Salah, Sterling, Hazard'. (interestingly he never captained Mane)

      It seems like this game is a simple one which I am playing wrong most of time, and over complicating it.
