How Scout Membership helped me to best-ever finish last season

The Fantasy Football Scout Members Area helped me achieve my best ever FPL rank last season.

I am convinced that if you sign up for the first time in 2019/20, you could be saying something similar by the time Gameweek 38 comes around.

As many of you know, when I joined the FFS team, my overall rank history was nothing to be envied.

After eight seasons playing the game, I had never managed anything higher than 176,058th place worldwide.

However, in my first year as editor of this site, I smashed my personal best by some margin, ending the 2018/19 campaign with an overall rank of 17,083.

I don’t want to take too much credit for that achievement, if anything the greatest factor in that improvement was the time I was able to spend in the Members Area, longer than ever before.

Sometimes I wonder if the great Mark Sutherns hired me as part of some social experiment, a Fantasy football version of Big Brother if you will.

Take a journalist with a pretty average FPL history, stick them in the Members Area for eight hours a day and watch what happens.

Whatever the brief of this reality show was, it’s hard to argue it was not a success.

Admittedly, it was not hard for me to beat my previous best rank, but at the start of 2018/19, I never even dreamed I would end up finishing 17k.

I even spent time inside the coveted top 10,000 managers last season, holding a place there from Gameweek 16 to Blank Gameweek 27. These were dizzy heights for someone with my FPL history.

So, how did the Members Area help this achievement and what could it do to help potential newcomers in 2019/20?

Let’s start with the Season Ticker, a cornerstone of success in Fantasy football.

This fully interactive model for displaying fixtures was an invaluable tool.

The ability to sort each team’s schedule by difficulty, either by defence or attack, saves you so much time when it comes to identifying who has the best or worst fixtures.

Having this tool allowed me to pick a strong team for Gameweek 1, helped me with both my Wildcards and guided my transfer policy throughout the season.

As the campaign progresses, the Fantasy Football Scout Season Ticker lets you identify the all-important fixture swings and know when it might be a good idea to move one player on for another.

Another large part of my success in the early part of the season was the captaincy, as I (somehow) managed to get returns from the first 17 I selected in a row.

This is another area where I can only credit the Scout Members Area for making most of those choices a lot simpler than they would have been without it.

Using the data available to me I was able to compare the candidates each week based on several key statistics, namely shots in the box, shots on target, big chances and expected goals (xG).

Once the form player(s) had been established, an analysis of opposition defences usually showed the way to go.

Using the tables in the Scout members area I was able to assess which of the candidates’ opponents were allowing the most shots, the most in the box and the highest number of big chances.

Combining data on the form players and the most obliging defences, more often than not, led to the captain decision coming off.

But this data did more than just help me pick captains, it guided the selection of my entire squad.

Using both the tables and comparison tools I was able to identify form players, assess their position on the field, analyse all of their shots in terms of quality and much more.

Combining this information with the Season Ticker is what helps you time these transfers correctly.

I have to credit the Members Area for helping decide to keep Salah one more week and captain him against Bournemouth last December

One particular table that was the most useful for me was Joe’s famous Goals Imminent table.

One of the most frustrating things in FPL is when you sell a player who has not delivered in recent matches, only for them to punish you immediately after their departure from your team.

This was something that characterised my playing-style before jumping feet first into the Members Area. I was often too impatient with my assets in years gone by, but Fantasy Football Scout Membership changed all that.

Joe’s table is the perfect tool for working out which of your underperforming Fantasy players is still showing strong enough underlying statistics to get back in the goals next time out.

For example, it was a combination of the aforementioned captain analysis and Joe’s table that ensured I held on to Salah and gave him the armband for that memorable hat-trick at Bournemouth, a week in which he suffered mass sales.

Perhaps the thing that surprised me the most about last season was how easy it felt to achieve what I did, which sounds silly to say given how much my overall rank improved.

Historically, FPL had been a game of toil and strife for me. I suppose for many it still is, and I’m still not sure on my Gameweek 1 team for 2019/20, but looking back, I was playing the game blind, without the incredible tools I have now.

Many mini-leagues titles that I had struggled to claim for years were swept aside in one fell swoop, including one or two with cash prizes.

Access to all the data and the time to sift through it armed with everything I needed to make the right choices.

In a game such as FPL, most of the time, the more information you have, the easier it becomes.

My 2018/19 campaign is very much testament to that philosophy. Research is everything. Not only does it help you make a sound choice more often than not, but it also eases the decision-making process.

I’m a firm believer that the more information and data you have, the easier your FPL decisions become

Now, you might be sat there reading this article thinking, ‘of course David is going to push the Members Area on us, it’s his job.’

That may be true in part, it is my responsibility as the editor of this site to convince as many of you to sign up as possible, but this is far from me trying to blow my own trumpet.

That’s because I can’t really take credit for the incredible gold mine of FPL information that is the Members Area. It’s an absolute masterpiece forged by the hard work of others way before my time.

That’s why I feel very comfortable signing its praises. It’s not my creation, I was just fortunate enough to inherit the best Fantasy Football website in the business from the veritable Godfather of FPL.

If you have never had Membership before and are hoping to have a good year of FPL, then I can only recommend that you sign up.

As my experience from last season proves, with access to everything Scout has to offer, it will be hard not to improve your overall rank history.

    Which of these look better? Would be 4th defender (after TAA, VVD, Digne) and 3rd midfielder (after Salah and Sterling, plus Perez).

    A) Sigurdsson and Alderweireld

    B) Fraser/Moura and Azpilicueta

    1. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      A

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I like B more with Fraser.

      You're not convinced by Walker, Stones & Zinchenko I'm assuming.

      1. Pooodle
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        I'm going to have Ederson as well, so not sure about the double up considering the rotation risks for each of them. Just seems like a transfer needing to be made after a few weeks when they've missed a game or two.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          That's an expensive def setup.
          Yeah I agree about that double up is not worth it considering you might want a 2nd City attacker also.

          Currently on Zinchenko but I'm looking at other options.

          1. Pooodle
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Yeah - this is currently how it's shaking up with option B. The alternative is downgrading 4th defender to bring in a 6m 3rd striker but I'm worried about having too many just ok strikers.

            Ederson
            VVD, TAA, Digne, Azpi
            Salah, Sterling, Perez, Fraser
            King, Wood

            (4m GK, 4m def, Dendoncker, Greenwood)

    3. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      B with fraser

  2. ddfc
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Best 4.5m GK and why?

    1. Pilgrim62
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I’m on Ryan/Button

    2. Turns
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Pope or Heaton - toss up.

    3. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Heaton given fixtures

  3. Eastman
    • 2 Years

    Anyone considering Haller from the off?

    1. The Mighty Hippo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I am

      1. cfizzle15
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Either him or Kean...either way I’m taking a punt

    2. Pooodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      No - new signing and it's never very clear if West Ham will be that good or if he'll fit in straightaway.

    3. Gazpilicueta
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I like the idea of him. But as with many players I will give him a chance to settle into his new club and new league, if i miss a couple of points for that, then so be it.
      great player tho.

    4. Jarvish
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Yeah

      1. Eastman
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        That clears it up for me lol! Thanks folks

    5. Turns
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Had him for a while, but lost interest. City first up and may take a while to bed in. Plenty of other decent options at that price point too

      1. Eastman
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Who are you going with?

    6. squirrelbean
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I am, but currently deciding between Haller/Barkley and Martial/Adams and wait to see which WHU is best come gw3

    7. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

    KDB and Pérez
    or
    Fraser and Sigurdsson

    1. Turns
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      First

    2. Pooodle

      KDB and Perez

    3. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1 month, 11 days ago

      A

  5. cemal
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Both these options cost the same, which combination would you rather?
    A) Fraser + Deulofeu
    B) Pereyra + Wilson

    1. Turns
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      B for me

    2. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Don't like either really

  6. Turns
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Any chance of an RMT lads? Think i'm about set.

    Pope
    Robbo, Digne, Dunk
    Salah, Sterling, Moura, Perez, McGinn
    Kane, King

    Button, Lund, Kelly, G'wood

    1. Boris Bodega
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Looks very good to me, no issues.

    2. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I like a lot of the picks. I like your weaker three mids but think I'd sacrifice one to get another Liverpool defender

    3. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Bench is garbage but thats the price of 3 big hitters so looks ok

  7. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Pope Heaton
    Vvd taa Robertson digne Gibson
    Sterling kdb tielemans lucas fraser
    Wilson greenwood Wickham

    Where would you spend 0.5 or keep it for future?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Fraser to siggy.

      1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        All my earlier drafts had siggy, I'm just a bit apprehensive about their lack of goals in preseason. If he's going well though I will plan to do this for gw3

    2. Pooodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Upgrade Gibson to have at least one bench player who will start

      1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Yes,that's sensible. I've foolishly assumed that tarkowski will move and Gibson take his place but this is a good place to upgrade otherwise

    3. notmarkhughes
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I'd drop either Heaton or Pope for Button and take that 1m (inc your remaining 0.5) and lose one of the Liverpool defence to upgrade Wickham

      1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        It's true that keeper rotation ends in tears. I'm not sure I like any of the fwds at that price and am loathe to invest in forward positions anyway. Could do this with Gibson though. I just like how they rotate.

  8. RLN1985

    GTG??
    Ederson
    Walker Robertson Digne Wan-bissaka Lundstram
    Salah Sterling Perez Lamela
    Kane
    Sub: Button, Dendoncker, Greenwood, Wickham

    Walker/digne to azpi and Lamela to Barkley or others after first few weeks

    1. Turns
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I like it. Lamela a big risk if Lo Celso/Fernandez come in

    2. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Feels like you've got four bench outfield players, but obviously counter that with quality elsewhere. Risky but could pay early dividends

  9. twisterteo
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    What is the best option for defense

    1. VVD AAT Dunk Femenia
    2. AAT Zinchenko Coleman Dunk

    Basically double liverpool or zinch and colem

    1. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B looks a lot more balanced

    Think I might just be there. Thoughts would be very welcome!

    Pope
    TAA - Walker - Digne - KWP
    Salah (C) - Sterling - Perez - Barkley
    Kane (VC) - King

      Decent team considering you have Kane - doesn't look too unbalanced.

        • 1 Year

        Thanks. I'm not set on KWP as I don't really like a planned transfer, but him to one of the many 5.5 options for GW2 feels like a good plan!

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Or swap him with Shaw or AWB?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year

            Yeah exactly, or Maguire

    2. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Would you consider Robinson instead of barkley and banking 0.5? Looks good otherwise

      1. claretparrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Yeah I've been looking at something similar on and off. Taken in by Barkley's potential pens in the new VAR world!

    3. notmarkhughes

        1. notmarkhughes
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          A couple of last minute doubts - I have a similar side to you though, so may be some bias in my previous answer!

          My defence is currently AWB, Trent and Zinchenko and I'm still trying to figure out a way to upgrade King to Wilson without losing Siggy

    4. Turns

      Seen this exact team except fodder variations and most have 5.5 insteasd of KWP like 20 times the last 24 hours. The new template.

      1. claretparrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        If so, I'm pretty happy with that

    7. jumbob
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Very similar to my own team!
      One question; isn’t this team leaving you with 0.0 ITB?

      1. claretparrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 10 days ago

        0.5, so I'll have a decision to make on KWP before GW1 or very early in the season

  12. PepSala

    Any last minute golden rules for doing an eight man FPL Draft?

      Get on the forwards early

    Suddenly I've ended up with 3 Utd picks (albeit one is a fodder)

    Part of me can't wait for the pressure to be off on Friday (albeit for a few days)

      As a United fan whose season last year was massively hit by repeatedly getting in United players, this doesn't sound ideal...

        It'll probably change more than once before Friday!

          The other thing is Chelsea at home first GW means you're unlikely to get a huge amount of points from them so might point to waiting a bit.

    3. Jarvish

      Thought about it, but probably not.

    4. Hampe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes

    5. HurriKane
      • 7 Years

      Too risky at the moment as lampard will be experimenting at the start

    6. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I was but with mount and eventually rlc see too much rotation there

    Sheffield station smells, out of here soon. Tight 15 minute wifi allocation.

  19. HurriKane
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Is it better to avoid Kane for first 2 games ?

    Son suspended, Alli injured, Eriksen rumored to be heading out

    With so much uncertainty surrounding spurs attack and facing city in 2nd match im having serious doubts. (saying that its good to have a strategy to bring him in 2 or 3 moves)

    1. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I'll assess after a few weeks

    2. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I've got him.

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Reckon he scores big against villa?

        This will probably be spurs attack
        Lamela Kane Moura
        Ndombele Winks Sissoki

        1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          I do. (K)ane.

    3. Turns
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I've got him in. Will jump ship to Kun if goes sour

    4. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Means that Kane will score most of the goals himself 😉 got him

    5. Guilty Sigurðsson ♛
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      To me it makes Moura more appealing.

    Which team do you guys prefer?

    Ryan Heaton
    TAA Digne XXX -- Rico Lundstrum
    Salah Sterling Perez XXX XXX
    King XXX --- Greenwood

    A: Zincheko + Gross + Siggy + Wilson in a 352/442
    B: Guilbert + Moura + Siggy + Wilson in a 352
    C: Guilbert + Barkley + KDB + Wilson in a 352
    D: Guilbert + VVD + Barkley + Auba in a 442

    Forward dilemma here, bit of help?

    A - Kane Jota
    B - Firmino Rashford

    King will be my 3rd striker

    1. Turns

      A

    Who's better, Sigurdson or Richarlison?

    1. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Siggy

  23. ritzyd
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Done. Rip it to pieces please!!

    Lloris-4m
    TAA-Walker-Digne-Azpi (Dunk)
    Salah-KDB-Siggy-Perez (Dendo)
    Wilson-Abraham (Greenwood)
    0.5 itb

    1. Turns
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Abraham a punt (but you know that), but I like it

      1. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Yeah, he is but first choice striker in a chelsea side for 7m? Have 0.5 itb with one eye on abraham to haller

    2. FISSH
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I'd swap TAA to robo. Just because Gomes will take minutes off him

      1. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Have a strong bench sonthink i can probably absorb the odd benching?

      2. kysersosa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Could see Gomez pushing more for a CB rather than WB position as the season goes on. I know he replaced him on Sunday but I do think the was more for rest than tactical.

    3. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Would spend a bit less in defence and get another captain option in addition to Salah

      1. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Yeah, had both sterling and kane it at times but happy to cap KDB in the 3 or 4 gws i wont captain salah in the first 12 weeks.

      There's no correlation between FFS membership and rank. My best season came in the year I watched least football, and made 'casual' moves.

  25. Zlatanzo
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Thoughts?

    Ryan
    Robbo / VVD / Digne / Guilbert
    Salah / Sterling / KDB / Perez
    Haller / King

    Button / Dend / Greenw / Lunds

    1. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Surely a better choice gw1 than haller - move to him gw2

  26. FISSH
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Failed on previous post

    A) Pope
    Robertson, Zinchenko, Coleman, Dunk
    Sterling, Salah, Barkley, PEREZ
    AUBA, Wilson

    (GREENWOOD, lundstram, Dendonker)

    B) Pope
    Robertson, Zinchenko, Coleman
    Sterling, Salah, Barkley, KDB
    ADAMS, Wilson, DEULOFEU

    So basically..

    A) Perez, Auba, Greenwood

    Or

    B) KDB, Adams, Deulofeu

    1. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A for me

      A for sure. Deulofeu's stats are wickedly skewed.

    What do we reckon?

    Ryan
    Robertson, Trent, Digne, KWP
    Salah (C), Sterling, Siggy, Perez
    King, McBurnie

    Button, Barkley, Greenwood, Lundstram

    £0.5m itb

    What do you think, GTG?

    Ryan [Button]
    Wan-B Robbo VVD Ake [Kelly]
    Salah Sterling Perez Barkley [Dendo]
    Kane King [Greenwood]

    Bench is weak, but I have my key assets.

    1. vova
      • 9 Years

      Nearly identical to my team, have TAA, Zinchenko and Dunk instead of Robertson, AWB and Ake.

    I’m putting on Haller and feels fun. I’ll prob bottle Moura and end up with Fraser come the deadline

    Popey boy
    VVD TAA Stones Goalman
    Raz Salah Moura Perez
    Wilson Haller
