How to handle FPL bandwagons in early Gameweeks

The latest episode of the Scoutcast is about to start on our YouTube channel.

You can watch the show from 8pm to 9pm BST.

This week, Joe is joined by Az and David to discuss the key Fantasy Premier League talking points ahead of Gameweek 3.

The next round of action is an important one for Fantasy managers as many will be wielding their two free transfers.

Already bandwagons have begun to form, so our Scoutcasters will be discussing how best to approach these.

Naturally, Teemu Pukki (£6.7m) is a prime example after he scored a hat-trick in Gameweek 2.

However, we will also be examining Liverpool assets after a lacklustre start to the season at both ends of the pitch.

    Any news on Digne people?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Nothing more than what Silva said after the game

      1. ddfc
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        more i read on news stories, the more i think he will miss out

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          actually I did read later that Silva expects Digne and Baines available whatever that means

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        this person knows nothing you dont

    2. Toby Lerone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Will only be out for one game either way

  2. DV8R
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Pick 1 to bench:

    A) Lundstram
    B) Wilson
    C) Pukki

    1. Dirtymeercat666
      1 month, 24 days ago

      A

    2. Athletic Nasherbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Yes C absolutely. Bang out of form.

    3. Toby Lerone

    Hi mates,

    2FT; 1m Itb

    Pope Perez to De Gea Mount tonight (before Perez goes down in price) or wait for Digne news?

    Pope
    Digne VVD Laporte TAA
    Salah Sterling Perez Martial
    Jota King

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Wait

    2. Helia
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Why get rid of Pope?

    3. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Pope was great against Arsenal. He'll get some max baps CS scores. Might go with him as only playing GK

  4. ZICO SENNA
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    On WC guys, so i've come up with two drafts that i favour so far.

    Big fan of the 352 & 451 formations. Intent on not wanting Kane.

    Which team would you opt for?

    TEAM 1

    Pope
    AWB - Soyuncu - Laporte
    Mane - Sterling - KDB - Martial - Mount
    Rashford - Pukki
    _________________________________
    Button: Lundstram, Dunk, Wickham

    TEAM 2

    Pope
    AWB - Coleman - Walker - Dunk
    Mane -Sterling - KDB - Martial Son
    Pukki
    ________________________________
    Button:Lundstram, Greenwood, Wickham

    Easy to downgrade any mid and upgrade forwards/defence etc.

    Would be good to hear your comments chaps, thanks.
    Secretly prefer team 2.

    1. Lallana
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      1 but not a fan of the defence. Perhaps get Soyuncu in to upgrade elsewhere.

      1. Lallana
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        2*

        1. ZICO SENNA
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          i thought the defnce was better in team 2 than team 1? haha.
          Could do Coleman \\= Walker >> Zinc + Digne?

          1. Lallana
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Think if Digne is fit he's template but not a fan of Zinc haha!

            1. ZICO SENNA
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              haha! argghhh decisions 🙂

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Not keen on Kane either.

      Was going to go through what I did and didn't like about both teams but Jesus they both look v good. Making me want to wc haha. Not much in it as I like Son and Rashford just as much as either. Not keen on Mount in team 2 and walker isn't nailed imo.

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Yeah i'm not too keen on Mount, just shoved him in there as a 6.0 riser for the time being that's all. Walker is bound to change as well, seems safe for now though.
        Son & Rash look a good pairing, especialy with Rash favourably now on pens too.

    3. Dynamo Chicken
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Pukki as a lone forward seems very brave

      1. Lallana
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        That's why I'm saving my wildcard. When Kane or Aubameyang get going I don't want to do a team surgery.

        1. ZICO SENNA
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          It's the sacrifices everywhere else though for those types of players, where you have to show a lot of trust in them, whereas i like to spread the higher chances out with the mids.
          As said though, i could easily get auba/kane without major surgery

          1. Lallana
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            451 historically has done well the last few seasons so a balanced team is good.

            1. Kiwivillan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Is that post hoc calculation or real world winners?

      2. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        True but it's easily corrcted if needed from downgrading a mid, simple 🙂

        1. Lallana
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Think downgrading Salah/Mane or Sterling for Kane or Aubameyang could be a mistake. You may need to do a -8 to avoid getting rid of them.

          1. ZICO SENNA
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Oh i wouldn't touch them mate, it'd be Son/Martial for the chop. Sacrifices have to be made and i believe mids are where it's at.

    4. Dirtymeercat666
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I probably prefer team two as well. It’s just the strike force I’m not a fan of but then, you can’t have it all

    5. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Team 2 looks fun

      With 2FTs it's flexible enough to get you most anywhere. Using up the 5th mid spot just seems a bit of a shame when the 4.5 mids look class bargain basement fodders when compared to the forwards.

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Cheers bud, yeah that's true, which 4.5 mid though? I've not came across any that are class?

    6. Athletic Nasherbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Team 1 is much better!

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        But with Zinchenko + Mina rather than Laporte + Soyuncu

        1. Athletic Nasherbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Would consider Adrian too then move to Pope in 3/4 gameweeks assuming he remains GK

          1. ZICO SENNA
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Hmmm i'm not a fan of Adrian, very clumsy, and would only mean a transfer down the line.

            1. Athletic Nasherbo
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              This is fair. Just a thought if you fear a Liverpool cleansheet.

        2. ZICO SENNA
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          ooo could shout bud, suppose Zinc hasn't done anything wrong yet, just that pesky Mendy, should be out for a bit though.

          1. Athletic Nasherbo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Zinchenko + Mina for more superior option than Laporte and Soyuncu!

            1. ZICO SENNA
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Yeah i'd agree with that, Mina is a good option.

    7. Warby84
      • 4 Years

      1

  5. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Bad habit that I can't bring myself to make tranfers before pressers?

    1. Dirtymeercat666
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Nah, sensible, is all that is

    2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Not really - I rarely do early moves except to cover early season rises like this week 🙂
      Meaning I have Digne to worry about....

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 24 days ago

      From the community article on undervalued players

      "Another widely discussed topic is should we make transfers early or incur price increase/decrease and wait as close to deadline as possible. My regression can calculate the cost of waiting. The value of any additional 0.1 in team value diminishes from 1.7 points at the start of the season to 0 points at the end.

      As an example, if there are 37 Gameweeks left, the cost of 0.1 increase in price can be calculated as 0.1 multiplied by incremental return of 1m (0.46) and multiplied by remaining Gameweeks (37). That would give us 0.1 x 0.46 x 37 = 1.7 points for every 0.1 increase in price. The cost of missing 0.2 price increase (3.4 points) is just below the cost of a hit (4 points)."

      Hope that made sense to you 😉

        good post

      2. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Cheers, I get you. Wish it was as simple as that haha

    4. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I usually do early transfers, especially if its an exact money swap, eg. King to Pukki last week and Auba to Kane this week. Guess I just dont have the patience to wait until after all the pressers, which is likely a flaw in my game!

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        So you went for the Auba to Kane. How you looking

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Happy enough mate, Perez needs to do something soon and I might bench Fraser for Dendonker this GW being my weakest links.

  6. Lallana
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Some players I think that should be on more points:

    Sigurdsson (has created enough chances)
    Salah (shooting boots not on...yet)
    Emerson (created some great chances)
    Wilson (should have more assists)
    McGinn (deserved a goal/assist last game)

    Anyone I'm missing?

    1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      kdb, robbo, pukki

      1. Lallana
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Pukki was a madman last game

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Classic Richarlison

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 24 days ago

            basically

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      richarlison 6 shots 5 in box 1 big chance 0 on target

      1. Gnu Scott talent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Which is why I still have him.
        Not the stats but he looked dangrous.

        disclaimer - I reckon he's sooo underpricd.

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          agree but could easily be 12 shots 10 in box 2 big chances 0 on target in 2 weeks time

  7. The Big Fella
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Why are people bringing in Cantwell? He has scored 1 goal in his league career as far as I can tell (perhaps another 1 or 2 if you count cup matches). Am I missing something?

    1. Lallana
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      4.5M fodder? wouldn't start him

    2. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Rival to his place out for 3 months and stats in first 2 games are v good

      1. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Currently have Dendonker as my fodder and if Digne is ok then no transfers I want to do. My trade them - Dendonker came off the bench for me last week.

    3. TheBrazilianRonaldo
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Nope. Pukki raising his value only reason

    4. MosF94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 24 days ago

      He's 4.5, playing as a left-winger, Norwich fans are extremely impressed by his improvement this season, his main competition (Hernandez) is long-term injured, he got 2 assists last game, and he's supplying the brilliant finisher that is Pukki. Looks good atm imo

      1. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Cheers. Better than Dendonker then would you say?

  8. MattysFantasyFooty

    Keep one for this gw?

    1. Siggy

    1) chances of Perez starting this gw?

    2A) Perez > Lanzini (-4)? Worth it? Exact funds or
    2B) Perez >> Mount (-4) later in the week once we have more indo

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year

      64.5%

  10. MarvelouSuccess

    Used my 2 FTs. I really want Pukki and Martial in the future. How does my team look?

    Ryan
    Digne VVD AWB Zinchenko

    Salah Sterling (C) Perez KDB

    King Wilson

    Bench
    Button Lundstram Dendoncker Greenwood

    1. Tsparkes10

      King, Wilson, Perez and potential injured Digne. Yikes

      1. MarvelouSuccess
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        This is my predicament. I scored 88 points last week but got 46 points this week. Can't be helped.

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Both solid.

  11. meclive
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Is origi to pukki the obvious transfer this week? Origi surely not starting in front of mane.

    1. simritpal.bains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I would if you have the funds!

  12. MosF94

    1 month, 24 days ago

    Brighton fans: how long do you think it'll be before Maupay wins a starting spot?

  13. meclive
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Quick poll, who would you rather have?

    A) mount
    B) mcginn

    1. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      McGinn

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      a not close

  14. Athletic Nasherbo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    How important is having Martial?

    I’m on WC and can’t seem to look past Rashford.

    Most likely on pens now
    Higher probability of G+A
    Better in the bonus system

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Going without either on WC most likely. Rather Mane Kane Sterling KDB atm

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Think that is a mistake personally.

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Don't trust Man U to score lots like Chelsea game

          1. Athletic Nasherbo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Even with these fixtures?

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      none of that is necessarily true. martial extra pt for goal and cs and 1m cheaper. barnes/pukki better value non premium options than rash imo

    3. MosF94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Solid points. But:

      Martial is playing more centrally
      He gets an extra point for a goal
      He gets an extra point for a CS
      He's 1m cheaper

      Both good options imo, though I won't get both myself

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Very true. Just feel Barnes is a trap...maybe why I’m more inclined to have Rashford there.

          how is he a trap

            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Wood tends to do better in the easier fixtures which are coming up.

  15. UpAndAway

    On WC - Barnes vs Martial?

    Thoughts welcome.

    1. Lallana
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Martial.

      If you have Pukki and he loses form, Barne's fixtures pick up nicely.

      1. UpAndAway
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Cheers.

        As it stands, it's either Martial and a 4.5 forward or Barnes and Ceballos.

    Possible surprises in line ups this week?

    Son starting
    Zinch to be dropped
    Greenwood over James
    Perez dropped
    Jesus to start over Kun

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I'm most afraid of Aguero scoring big. Can't see Greenwood starting

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      kean should get a start imo. maybe tierney?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Don't think Tierney is on grass yet? Might be wrong but Kean a good shout. Possibly Maupay too

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          oh i just assumed tierney not involved because he was new

    3. TheBrazilianRonaldo
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Son off bench
      Zinch swapped. No ones dropped at city as there is no nailed place except ederson
      Mata over both
      Perez plays
      I buy Jesus starting

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 24 days ago

      There are two other City players Pep may decide that had a full preseason and deserve a rest before CL sets in 😉

    5. Athletic Nasherbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Why would Zinchenko be dropped?
      James will start

      Agree with others though

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Looked injured towards end of last game and feel cancelo may get a run tbh.

        James looked poor and Greenwood scored today in a behind the doors friendly. Wouldn't be too surprised

        1. Athletic Nasherbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I don’t think he’s injured but wouldn’t be surprised with Zinchenko to be honest with Cancelo lurking.

          James off the ball was immense he’ll play

    I mentioned a couple of nights ago that I'm deighted I'm not on wildcard.this week
    Not gloating as my squad is far from perfect but more I think they is so much choice....in other words so much uncertainty.
    on, probably 2/3 weeks more , the picture will be clearer.

    Oh, I've seen better squads than mine WC so I reckon there's a bit of herd/panic mentalallity going on.

    1. Lallana
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I need more information on players too!

      Not satisfied just yet...

      Might wildcard in a week or two.

      Happy taking a -4 or using my FT for now.

      1. Gnu Scott talent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        I might WC next week (hope not) but 2 weeks always seems far too early.

      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      2 weeks a small sample - picked a reliable team based on medium term fixtures and broadly sticking with it. only seemingly big mistake i made was no sterling and have rectified this week

      1. Gnu Scott talent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Correcting mistakes early is key, but that's hindsight,
        I went without Salah so that was my gamble.

    4. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Exactly. International break soon aswell and we know how they can turn teams or even players

  18. pablo discobar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    GK Pope
    DEF AWB, KWP, Mina, Lundstrum
    MID Salah, KDB, Sterling, Dendonker
    FWD Kane, Rashford

    Subs Cantwell, Soyuncu, Wickham

    Any good?

    1. MosF94

      Not sold on KWP, but I like the rest a lot!

    Should I take a hit for Jota to Pukki?

    My Reasoning;
    Wolves are playing Torino midweek in Italian, who is arguably a better team then wolves. Meaning Wolves will most likely be playing there best team. We saw what playing a midweek game did to Jota's performance in GW1.
    Jota may lose 0.1 by Friday, whereas Pukki will most likely increase again by Friday. So making the transfer might give me a $0.2 advantage
    I am happy with my def and mid but feel weak upfront. (Sterling, salah, KDB, Digne, Robb, Zinc), (Wilson & Jota)
    Pukki has better Anytime scorer odds even thou his playing a better team for this GW.
    Jota Has eve, CHE in gw4 and 5 but fixtures do get better after.

    Reasoning against,
    It will be a 4 point hit
    Jota has slightly better fixtures
    I have a strong feeling wolves will hit goalscoring form of last year.
    If I WC early will Pukki be able to cover the 4 point hit?

    1. clodhopper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I did it

    2. Graham Zusi's Hair is …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Pukki is overachieving. Jota is underachieving. You put Jota in to start for a reason...at least wait until after midweek game?

    3. simritpal.bains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Thank for the replies, I agrees i should at least wait for the midweek game and see how Jota looks. I guess just getting worried about the price changes. and Plus Jota is up against BUR, so it's a good fixture for him

  22. Heiro
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Perez to Mcginn before he drops tonight?
    Yes he has SHU but they haven't looked that leaky and I need to free some funds up.

  23. PepSala
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    If you've already taken a hit and confirmed this week and activate your wildcard does it erase the hit?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year

      Ya

    2. the dom 1

    1. simritpal.bains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Yes i do think so, his Fixtures get better from this GW and he pass's the eye test. His every where on the Pitch.

      1. Totalfootball
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        You getting him then ?

        1. simritpal.bains
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          At the moment i am pretty happy with my mid and more focusing on my fwds but to be honest, if was to make a transfer this week in the mid I would pick Mcginn, Martial and Mount over him at the moment. I just think Leicesters attach hasn't looked the best in the last two GWs. but I also expect them to pick up form soon.

          1. Totalfootball
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Okay thanks !

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      So many better options imo

    Hey what was the safe score for LMS league??

  27. SirStevieG
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Best defender 5.0 and under? Already have Lund.

  28. Jeanz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Those with Kane and Sterling, who are you captaining?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Kane or I wouldn't bother getting him in

      1. Jeanz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        I am on Kane, but just read this on The Fantasy Freak's Twitter:

        Bournemouth are ranked 3rd worst in the xGc table (expected goals conceded), which is extremely telling because they will face far more potent attacks than the likes of Sheffield United’s and Villa’s that they have faced so far. With City ranked comfortably best for expected goals scored (and Sterling ranked highest for big chances of all players in the league), this could be a fixture where the likes of De Bruyne and Sterling look primed for points. With Sterling having an incredible record against Bournemouth and form to back it up he looks to be the best captaincy option on paper.

        1. ZICO SENNA
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Mine has been on Sterling all week and likely won't change

        2. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I said this pre season that Bournemouth had worst equal away conceded last season with 2 relegated teams and 9 more than next worst

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 24 days ago

            think some of the gap between home/away defence is variance. they are bad at the back full stop

    2. CloudSky

      Raz atm.

    Have to ditch Martial on WC price catcher draft for Mane before he rises as none of other spots available and don't plan on keeping Martial
