Scout Picks

Salah and Sterling headline Gameweek 2 Scout Picks

Liverpool and Manchester City’s big guns are still important assets for Fantasy Premier League managers to own for Gameweek 2.

Once again, we have three premium options selected in our Scout Picks for this weekend, what we believe to be the best starting XI for the upcoming round of action.

This has been chosen using the Scout Squad selections made by David, Neale, Paul and Geoff earlier in the week.

For Gameweek 2 we line-up in 4-4-2 once again, this time coming in at £82.6m, £0.4m inside our budget of £83m.

Goalkeeper

Ryan scored nine points in Gameweek 1

Mathew Ryan (£4.5m) was an eleventh-hour addition to the Scout Picks after news of Adrian’s injury filtered around the Fantasy community. The Liverpool goalkeeper was originally given the nod but doubt over his starting place meant we had to drop in. Ryan is his replacement after facing no big chances in Gameweek 1 while West Ham could be without both Felipe Anderson and new signing Sébastien Haller.

Defenders

Trent Alexander-Arnold in action for Liverpool against Norwich

While Liverpool’s defence has not inspired confidence in Fantasy managers this week, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m) was still a popular option in the Scout Squad submissions. Neale, Paul and Geoff selected him as the best defender for Gameweek 2, David slotting him into second place. Despite conceding against Norwich, the right-back was top for key passes and big chances created at Anfield on Friday night.

Lucas Digne (£6.0m) was another hugely fashionable option according to the Scout Squad pundits, tipped by all four of them. While there are cheaper assets in the Everton defence, the £0.5m is worth paying this week for Digne’s involvement in set pieces. Watford conceded more chances from dead-ball situations between Gameweeks 21 and 38 last season. The Hornets also failed to register a single big chance in Gameweek 1, so a clean sheet is also on the cards for the Frenchman.

Neale and Geoff both selected Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£5.0m) in their Scout Squad selections ahead of Burnley’s visit to the Emirates stadium. Arsenal kept a clean sheet in Gameweek 1 and it was the right-back who got the assist for their only goal of the game.

After being the talk of the town for the last few weeks, John Lundstram (£4.0m) makes his Scout Picks debut for Gameweek 2. The Sheffield United asset faces a goal-shy Crystal Palace side this weekend and created two big chances in Gameweek 1, the joint-highest in the whole division.

Midfielders

Mohamed Salah scored against Norwich City in Gameweek 1

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) remains our favourite option in the Liverpool attack ahead of the trip to Southampton. The Saints were particularly leaky at home last season, only Manchester United managing fewer clean sheets in front of their own supporters. Furthermore, Salah was top of the league for shots in the box and shots on target in away matches in 2018/19. Any concerns over his 120-minute outing midweek were eased by Jurgen Klopp’s assurances in his Friday press conference.

While Salah was the unanimous first-choice midfielder, Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) occupied the second-place spot for all our Scout Squad pundits. No player had as many shots on target as him in Gameweek 1, while Spurs did not look too assured at the back against Aston Villa.

Like his defensive colleague, Gylfi Sigurdsson (£8.0m) looks set to benefit from Watford’s vulnerability to set-pieces in Gameweek 2. The Icelandic international created 45 chances in home matches last season, only Eden Hazard and James Maddison fashioning more than that.

Something of a left-field inclusion in the Scout Picks this week is Norwich City midfielder Emi Buendía (£6.0m). We were a big fan of Teemu Pukki in the Scout Squad but needed to save some money for spending elsewhere. Buendía is not necessarily a massive step-down though. He created three chances at Anfield on Friday night and his role in set pieces could help unlock a Newcastle side that conceded the joint-most chances from dead-ball situations in the whole of 2018/19.

Forwards

Aubameyang got the only goal in Arsenal’s win at Newcastle on opening weekend

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) has a fantastic record of scoring against Burnley, with a brace in each of his last three matches facing the Clarets. He was also afforded the joint-highest number of big chances in home matches across the 2018/19 season.

There was plenty of backing for Bournemouth’s attack in the Scout Squad submissions but we, unfortunately, ran out of cash for one of either Callum Wilson or Ryan Fraser. Josh King (£6.5m) deputises for his Cherries colleagues then, as we expect a return to last season’s attacking form in an open game at Villa Park.

Substitutes

Martín Montoya (£4.5m) makes the bench this week, after Neale and Paul included him in their Scout Squad selection. The defender looks likely to retain his place at right wing-back for the visit of West Ham, who could be without key attacking personnel.

John McGinn (£5.5m) made a great start to life in the Premier League scoring on his top-flight debut at Spurs. Bournemouth come to Villa Park in Gameweek 2, with a defence that’s hard to trust, so we won’t be too shocked if McGinn gets more attacking returns this weekend.

As already mentioned, we didn’t have the cash for Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) in our final XI but we still think he will do well in Gameweek 2. He had three shots in the box against Liverpool, the same number he had per game in the Championship.

The Scout Picks Captain

As we mentioned last week, the Scout Picks now has a captain in the 2019/20 season.

This skipper is chosen using the conclusions of the latest Captain Sensible article and a four-way vote between David, Neale, Paul and Geoff.

Because the use of Fantasy Football Scout data is used so heavily in this process, the captain we choose each Gameweek will be known only to those who have signed up to Membership for the 2019/20 season.

It will be revealed to the public only when the deadline for the Gameweek has passed.

The Community Champion

Representing the community against the Scout Picks in Gameweek 2 is Hot Toddy.

They have opted for a 4-4-2 of: Leno; Digne, van Dijk, Coleman, Alexander-Arnold; Fraser, Martial, Sterling, Richarlison; Aubameyang, Pukki.

The community member who beats our picks by the biggest margin over the campaign will win a £100 Amazon Voucher and a place in our Contributors and Moderators League for the following season.

Unfortunately, our Community Champion did not submit a team in Gameweek 1.

      B. But would look for a different option than Mount

          I would stretch to Zaha or even Perez. If not possible than I rate Gudmundsson and McGinn over Mount atm.

              -Mane back
              -Want Auba
              -Want Pukki
              -Want McGinn

              Some of the reasons.

                • 9 Years
                11 months, 2 days ago

                I fancy the mané/Salah double up. Could be profitable.

    Need to log off. My team is all sorted for this week, no headaches...
    ...So out of boredom I guess I started considering playing Pope over Heaton.
    It can work right ? 😉

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 2 days ago

      It can - think both will concede but Pope might get more saves, but may only be a point in it. Play Heaton though, otherwise you probably should have started with Pope 4.0 instead.

      1. el polako
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        To be honest I'm not a fan of rotating GK's, the only reason I have both of them is beacasue I couldnt decide between them and wanted to give myself more time to pick one for the season.

  6. Dynamic Duos
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 2 days ago

    Pukki got a rise hahaha

    1. Pro Pundit PUMPKINHEAD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 2 days ago

      Glad it made you happy

  7. ZeBestee
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 2 days ago

    Have Pope as my no. 1. Worth swapping him to another Goalie in Heaton or even Ryan? Or just save and play him?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 2 days ago

      Just play Pope - once GW 2-4 are out the way fixtures are great.

    2. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 2 days ago

      Play Pope.
      I have him and Heaton and still not sure which one to play today, Pope can rack up save points today.

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        This gw is an easy pick - Heaton

    3. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 2 days ago

      Stick with Nick...

  8. Taegugk Warrior

    Pope
    Vandijk/digne/Zinchenko/lundstram
    Salah(c)/sterling/fraser/robinson
    Vardy/Jota
    0.5 itb
    (Button/Moura/Rico/Greenwod)

    A. Save FT
    B. Moura to Sigurdson
    C. Moura to Martial

    1. International Richard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      I'd have gone C before the price rise. A now.

      What price is cantwell?

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        4.5m plays just behind(wing) Pukki.

        created 3 chances vs livp. Nice rotation with Donkey.

        1. super zlatan
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 2 days ago

          One thing to consider is Trent > vvd for nailesness.
          Even have the 0.5 in bank for options in case a 5.0 defender /5.0 mid emerges.

          1. Christina.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            11 months, 2 days ago

            yeah, could also give me Digne over Coelman. Everything will chance once Son is back. I will re look my team after IB.

            1. super zlatan
              • 9 Years
              11 months, 2 days ago

              0.5 in Bank gives flexibility.

              Vvd and digne is nice.

              Alternatively go with our team, with view to saving trade gw3. As you say, gives you more options over IB.
              Vvd just looks a serious threat from all corners. I wish I had got him originally. He was in all my draft teams until the last minute.

    2. Delhidynamo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3. Pieterke30

      I really like that IF you didnt start GW1 with Mané

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        I didn't.

        Auba/Mane/Coleman/Pukki/Mcginn/Cantwell are the new players in on WC.

    4. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 2 days ago

      Bad team. Hit WC

    5. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 2 days ago

      Not worried about Salah (pens/setpieces and whatnot)?

      I settled for something like this:
      Heaton 4.0
      VVD Dinge Dunk (Lund Rico)
      Salah Sterling Siggy McGinn (Dedonk)
      Kane Pukki Jota/Maupay

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        cant have them all. Mané will score almost as many points as salah this season imo

      2. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        nah, time to have some fun. I went without him last season and won my ML.

  10. super zlatan

    Trent and Robbo owners ....

    Happy to keep both?
    Worth downgrading one in next few weeks?

    1. ZeBestee

      Have both and will keep. Not sure TAA is as nailed as Robertson.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        I think he will, quietly confident of a haul. If he fails today am looking at either McGinn or Buendia as replacements

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 2 days ago

          And Mount/Barkley

      2. Delhidynamo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        I'm considering downgrading to a 4.5(Cantwell/Dendoncker) and reinvesting the money for an upgrade

        1. FOO FIGHTER
            11 months, 2 days ago

            This

          • International Richard
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            11 months, 2 days ago

            Exactly what i'm considering, but its to replace Barkley

          • ZeBestee
            • 5 Years
            11 months, 2 days ago

            Yeah good idea.

        Kane king

        Button Dendonck Kelly Greenwood

        Quite tempted by the Aubameyang Kane hokey cokey
        Would captain Aubameyang

      4. Zlat-man
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        Heaton;
        Zinch Lund Duffy (shaw kwp);
        Sterling (S)iggy kdb mili (dendo);
        Kane King Jimi;
        0.5 itb,1ft
        Feeling so tempted to do
        KwP > Coleman and play him over Zinch. Eve fixtures are so good!
        Do it? Or save?

      5. Delhidynamo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        Trossard, Bilva and Taylor all surviving the drop this week is lucky

        who'd be your priority to fix next week?

        1. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 2 days ago

          Trossard if he doesn't start. I hope he does though.

        2. super zlatan
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 2 days ago

          Keep an eye on Trossard this gw. Could ship to McGinn if he doesn’t appear to get decent game time.

            hopefully he gets some gametime! don't want to kick him out with the fixtures ahead

            Taylor downgrade to a 4.0 would be the ideal transfer

            Yeah possible mini WC, would like that 3rd big hitter. Also have Trossard tho so that may need to take priority; hoping he starts today

        A Montoya
        B Zinchenko
        C Trossard

        Have FPL changed where you can see your rivals team value, gameweek transfers made and transfer history?

        Can't see it anywhere.....

        Play either: Zouma or Lundstram and bank the transfer.
        OR
        Zouma to Montoya/Dunk and get 0.5 ITB.

        Suggestions please.

          thinking why did I miss out on Martial and McGinn price rises and didn't take a hit for Tross and Moura out this week. arrgghhh. Thinking my season is over

            Come on . It isn't over. This is just the start. Even if this turns out bad ( there's a 50% probability that it turns out good) , you have 36 gameweeks to recover.

            Hang in there. Everything happens for a reason

        G2G with bench choices? Rico has a nice fixture and maybe OOP, but I’d back villa to score:

        Heaton
        Digne, Robbo, TAA, Montoya
        Salah (C), Raheem (V), Martial, Perez
        Wilson, Jimenez

        Button; Rico, Greenwood, Dendo

      15. Supernova
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        Bench one of Zaha, Pukki, Bernardo.

        (draft team hence a bit weird)

        1. Zlat-man
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 2 days ago

          B, out of them 3. Lowest ceiling probably

      16. Bavarian
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        Who to play Pope or Heaton?
        Have Wilson and Fraser...

      17. ebb2sparky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        Which 2 to start from;
        Moura,
        Ings,
        Dunk,
        Lundstram,
        Dendoncker

        Currently going with Moura and Dunk but don't fancy spurs getting much at city or Brighton keeping a clean sheet! Maybe Ings in for dunk in case Liverpool are tired from mid week?

        I honestly didn't realise just how many people followed the FFS guys until I saw all these Trossard posts. Crazy! Wonder what percentage of owners even know what he looks like

          Peeps dont give a tross, they just want points.

          1. mynameisq
            • 6 Years
            11 months, 2 days ago

            That's fair enough, just feel there's better ways than getting in a random player you know next to nothing about based on the recommendation of some experts

            1. datamunkey
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              11 months, 2 days ago

              Preseason form played a big part for many to be fair

              Agree, but can also see appeal of finding cheap-ish differential which may give you an edge over "casuals" in mini league 😉
              So dont blame those who after watching youtibe influencers or reading articles in here decided to take a punt and if its only 1 or 2 players like that in 15 man squad then it can be easily rectified should things go wromg.

              My punt this year is Haller - altough I seen bits of him before in Bundesliga.

        Morning all,

        So, whats the verdict on the captain? Salah or Sterling?

        1. datamunkey
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 2 days ago

          Tempted by Sterling but...

          a) Southampton defence
          b) Rank loss if Salah goes big

          Going safe & dull at this early stage

          1. Tamagotchi Massacre
            • 5 Years
            11 months, 2 days ago

            You know safe and dull is the home player who hit a hatrick last week right!?

            What you're doing is following the crowd and writing off half a dozen points *winky etc*

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 2 days ago

          Sterling.

            • 4 Years

            Salah and Sterling owner, and going to captain digne.
            Kid likes the name digne and thought why not have fun. Anyways won't do great either ways. Atleast he can too have fun

      20. gellinmagellan
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 2 days ago

        Can't decide which two to bench apart from Dendoncker and GK. Help!
        Pope (Button)
        Zinchenko Robertson Digne Dunk Lundstram
        Salah KDB Moura Trossard (Dendoncker)
        Kane Jota King

        1. FOO FIGHTER
            11 months, 2 days ago

            I would bench Zinc, Dendo and Lundstram. Button not going to start.

            Probably bench lundstram and dunk although maybe play dunk instead of moura?
