Man City triple-up for Gameweek 4 Scout Picks

A Manchester City triple-up underpins the Scout Picks squad for Gameweek 4 as they prepare to host Brighton at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Selecting just three of their players proved difficult and we had to make some difficult choices sifting through David, Neale, Paul and Geoff’s Scout Squad submissions.

This week we line up in a 3-5-2 formation coming in at £82.9m, just £0.1m under our budget of £83.0m.

Goalkeeper

Tom Heaton is our selected goalkeeper for Gameweek 4

Budget goalkeeper Tom Heaton (£4.5m) is our man between the sticks for Gameweek 4 after all four of our Scout Squad pundits included him in their submissions. Aston Villa travel to a Crystal Palace side that has largely struggled in front of goal this season. They may have found the net twice on the counter-attack at Manchester United, but prior to that, they had blanked in favourable fixtures in Gameweeks 1 and 2. Last season the Eagles scored the fewest home goals of any side that survived relegation too. Given Heaton’s history for making saves, we believe he could provide excellent value this weekend.

Defenders

Liverpool’s defence has not inspired confidence this season but Alexander-Arnold is offering plenty of attacking threat

Liverpool’s defence has been hard to trust for clean sheets so far this season, but Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m) is still displaying plenty of attacking threat. His 11 chances created so far this season is the second-best in the entire league, of any player in any position, such is his threat both from set-pieces and from open play. Therefore, he stands an excellent chance of being involved in Liverpool’s goals at Burnley. Three of our Scout Squad pundits selected him as the best choice defender this week, David putting him in the second slot.

Lucas Digne (£6.1m) gets into the Scout Picks for the third week in four as Everton prepare to host Wolves on Sunday afternoon. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have been particularly goal-shy in the Premier League so far this season, finding the net just twice, once from the penalty spot and once through a world-class textbook Ruben Neves strike. The Europa League commitments appear to have taken a toll on Diogo Jota especially so it looks as if we’ll be in for a low-scoring affair at Goodison Park. Meanwhile, Digne continues to take set pieces for the Toffees, finding the net with one against Lincoln midweek.

With Brighton coming to the Etihad Stadium in Gameweek 4, a Manchester City defender should prove important. That’s why Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) gets back into the Scout Picks for the first time since Gameweek 1 after David and Paul tipped him in their submissions. Pep Guardiola’s men have conceded the fewest shots and goal attempts in the box over the first three Gameweeks, arguably unfortunate to let in two set-piece goals in both of their most recent outings. Meanwhile, Zinchenko played more key passes than any of his colleagues in the Gameweek 3 win over Bournemouth.

Midfielders

Raheem Sterling was unanimously voted as the best midfield option by our Scout Squad panel

Raheem Sterling (£12.3m) is the best midfielder for Gameweek 4 for each one of our Scout Squad panel. The Manchester City attacker has five goals in his first three matches of the campaign and is also top of the league for shots inside the box and big chances. After registering a goal and two assists in two league matches against a more defence-minded Brighton outfit last season, it seems unlikely that Graham Potter’s new-look forward-thinking side will stop Sterling’s excellent run of form at the Etihad Stadium.

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) is welcomed back to the Scout Picks XI after a week out in the cold, one in which he punished our lack of faith with a 15-point haul. The Egyptian very much looked back to his best against Arsenal, after underwhelming performances in Gameweeks 1 and 2. Burnley at Turf Moor is not an especially easy fixture, but if Liverpool are to make a breakthrough this weekend, Salah is the most likely to score based on his penalty-taking duties, and more shots on target than any other colleague so far this season.

Kevin de Bruyne (£9.7m) has been an exceptional creator in the league so far this season. He has played more key passes than any other player across the first three Gameweeks, fashioning the most big chances during that time too. We had to choose between Manchester City’s midfield maestro and centre-forward Sergio Aguero for the final member of our triple-up – it was the Belgian who triumphed. We believe that de Bruyne offers better value than his Argentinian colleague and has greater long-term appeal as a more nailed-on member of the first-team, Gabriel Jesus already making great progress coming back from his hamstring injury.

Fully recovered from his dead-leg against Norwich, Mason Mount (£6.2m) makes his debut in the Scout Picks XI. He is the latest differential option to get promoted to the top-flight of FFS advice, this week ahead of Sheffield United’s trip to Stamford Bridge. The Blades are not likely to be pushovers on Saturday afternoon but Mount looks like one of Chelsea’s key players under Frank Lampard already. He ranks top among his colleagues for goal attempts and shots on target, which is why the midfielder averages 6.7 points per game so far.

Todd Cantwell (£4.7m) is looking like a very effective enabler this season given his budget price and attacking potential. The ongoing injury to Norwich midfielder Onel Hernández should ensure the 21-year-old continues to start games on the left flank of Daniel Farke’s attacking 4-2-3-1 formation. That has allowed Cantwell to register three attacking returns in the first three matches of the season. Against a West Ham defence that has not looked solid at all this season, we are backing the budget man to continue his run of form.

Forwards

Sébastien Haller makes his Scout Picks debut for Gameweek 4

Sébastien Haller (£7.4m) gets into the Scout Picks after being tipped by all four of our Scout Squad pundits. Paul was especially fond of the West Ham man, selecting him as the best forward for Gameweek 4. Norwich’s defence has been quite obliging in the early part of the season, conceding more shots on target than any other side, and letting in the highest number of goals so far (eight). Haller looks a decent candidate to capitalise on the Canaries’ weaknesses at the back, having found the net twice against an equally leaky Watford defence in Gameweek 2.

As David mentioned in his Scout Squad submission, Teemu Pukki (£7.0m) has almost become an auto-include for the Scout Picks at this point. He has five goals in the first three matches of the season and from what we can see of the underlying statistics, this output in terms of attacking returns looks sustainable. We’ve already covered how poor West Ham’s defence has been in recent weeks in our entry for Cantwell, so against them, it seems unlikely that Pukki’s scoring run will come to an end.

Substitutes

Emerson (£5.5m) has been showing plenty of potential in the early weeks of 2019/20. The Chelsea left-back is joint-top for attempts on goal among defenders and is joint-second for efforts inside the box. Clean sheets have not been forthcoming for the Blues just yet, but a home match with Sheffield United could be the perfect opportunity for Emerson to deliver his first returns of the campaign.

Daniel James (£6.0m) has been a rare positive spark for Manchester United so far this season, finding the net on two occasions already. The injury to Anthony Martial should see his place in the side assured for Gameweek 4 and given he has had more shots inside the box than any other Red Devil in 2019/20, his goal threat is already making itself known.

Joelinton (£5.9m) gets onto the Scout Picks bench after also making into our Spot the Differential article for Gameweek 4. The Newcastle forward managed to find the net with very little service against Spurs last weekend and may enjoy more opportunities against a Watford defence that has started the season in poor form.

The Scout Picks’ Captain

As we have mentioned many times since the season began, the Scout Picks now has a captain for the 2019/20 campaign.

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 4 is InsaneFC.

They have opted for a 3-4-3 of Kepa; Zinchenko, Digne, Alexander-Arnold; Sterling, Lanzini, Mount, Maddison; Haller, Aguero (c), 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.

It was a close defeat for the Scout Picks in Gameweek 3 as FPL Mike the Knight won by a 46-44 scoreline.

That means Hot Toddy’s 10-point winning margin from Gameweek 2 remains the current score to beat.

    Greenwood red card coming to and FPL team near you

      10 months, 9 days ago

      You were close

      1. Green Arrows Only
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 9 days ago

        Everyone has the same question. Will he start and people including me will get like 1 pt

        1. Maddamotha
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 9 days ago

          He will get game time, if he starts or get 30min I dont know. Hopefully there will be some news later. Question for me and for many others is if its worth taking out Martial for a hit? Could go both ways.

    2. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      2 goals and 3 Baps

  2. kelvint93
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    Start Hayden or Greenwood?

    Other option on bench is Lundstram but have mount in my starting xi

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Hayden

    2. Annie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Greenwood, Watford easy win today

  3. CostaCoffee
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    Mount more than likely playing left wing again today, not sure if it makes him a better or worse option

    1. Valar(Keith)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      He is a nailed Chelsea mid on set pieces at 6. He is a good option regardless

      1. CostaCoffee
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        That wasn’t what I said though?

    2. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      I don’t think it makes any difference, he is bargain at this rate. Involving on everything for Chelsea

      1. Don Van Vliet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        Of course it does.

    3. mookie
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      I think it'll be Willian, Mount and Pulisic, with Mount in the middle. (nonowner)

      1. CostaCoffee
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        Barkley over Willian imo, Lampard seems to be using Willian as sparingly as possible. Could’ve used him as a like for like replacement for Pedro last week but went with Barkley instead

    4. Amey
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 9 days ago

      A return would be enough.
      Sold Trossard for him in WC to play the fixture

    5. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      To be honest I havnet seen enough of him at Derby nor enough Chelsea under Lampard to have an idea if its better or worse.

      What I know is that he is cheap, in form and trusted by his gaffer which is good enough for me for now.

    6. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Played off the left vs Norwich and did well. Not enough data to know whether it makes him better or worse yet

  4. itsmeguneet
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    Anyone on KDB as captian? What say??

    1. Don Rogers FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      He currently has my Armband but I don’t have sterling or Aguero. I do have Salah and Vardy though and prefer him to those 2.

    2. Frucke
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Going sterling

  5. FPLAdmiral
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    Kane owners - what are you doing?

    Hold? Worth shipping for a hit for Aguero or Haller?

    1. Baked baines
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Haller

    2. Fernando Torres
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Kane will score vs Arsenal

    3. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      holding

    4. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      I have to hold, because Martial was out.

    5. Frucke
      • 5 Years

      Spurs didnt look great..

  6. squirrelbean

    Glad to see 8 of the 11 scout picks in my team

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Same here.
      Red arrow here we come

  7. borko
    • 1 Year

    pope and pieters or adrian and christiansen...just for this gw?

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      For free then sure, not confident in a Liverpool clean sheet though

      1. borko
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 9 days ago

        i used wildcard ...its free for today 🙂 and i will bring back pope and pieters back in the next weeks

        1. CostaCoffee
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 9 days ago

          If it’s just for this week then no, you’ll be forced to use transfers elsewhere and may not be able to get them back in

          1. CostaCoffee
            • 6 Years
            10 months, 9 days ago

            Maybe do Pieters to Christensen

      2. borko
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 9 days ago

        kelly or matilan niles?

        1. CostaCoffee
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 9 days ago

          Kelly

          1. borko
            • 1 Year
            10 months, 9 days ago

            i think that chelsea will have cs, i know silly me but i have salah and cant have pope

    2. JurgenRocks
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Pope and Pieter are definitely better long term. Chelsea and Liverpool aren’t doing great at clean sheets.

  8. InSaneMan-e
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    If you owned both Kun and Sterling, which would you captain?

    1. Green Arrows Only
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Kun for me

    2. itsmeguneet
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      I have both and cap is Kun

    3. Hot Toddy

      Kun

    7. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      10 months, 9 days ago

      Have both - going Kun

    8. JurgenRocks

    9. Arse Craic

      • 10 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      The exchange rate on Sterling is good at the min

  9. davies
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    Bench order correct lads?

    1) Dendoncker (eve)
    2) Rico (lei)
    3) Lundstram (che)

    1. mookie
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Yes imo

  10. Valar(Keith)

        Thanks mookie. You too

    2. sneif4
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Great team. Also on WC, only difference being:
      TAA - Suyuncu
      Wesley - Haller

      1. Valar(Keith)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        Yup. I really want haller. But it'd mean a defense downgrade and long term I'm not sure if it's worth it. Could go either way though. Good luck to both of us 🙂

        1. sneif4
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 9 days ago

          Yeah, it was a coin toss for me. Good luck!

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Are you really benching Barnes?

      1. Valar(Keith)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        Was all set on starting him ahead of Wesley until I was convinced otherwise. Think I may jsut start him this week especially since I consider TAA to be an attacker anyway lol

        1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Indeed. 🙂

        2. Rinseboy
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 9 days ago

          think I've swayed to starting Barnes too now

    4. Amey
      • 1 Year

      GL 🙂

      1. Valar(Keith)

        You too fellow WCer :).. Watd you decide in the end regards haller or wesley

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 9 days ago

          Ha ha
          Cheers mate
          I'm going with

          Pope Button
          Taa Digne Dunk Rico Lundstram
          Salah Sterling KDB Mount Cantwell
          Pukki Barnes Haller

    5. Rinseboy
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      still cant decide on Cantwell vs barnes to start!

      1. sneif4
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        Im starting Barnes, Cantwell first sub

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

          ^^^.

      2. Frucke
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        Oh thats a hard one

      3. Valar(Keith)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        I may start Barnes ahead of Wesley yet. Cantwell makes it tricky. Quite fancy a 3 - 3 in that game 🙂

    6. Sloopy

    Grey to Haller for -4 ? Really need to get some points had a rough start this year.

    1. Lecky Legs FC
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      No Andre Gray could easily slot one past Newcastle away this afternoon

      1. dansmusen
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        It is a good fixture for Grey i admit. But thinking Haller could be better for the future aswell.

  12. HappyMonday

    Captain Aguero or Sterling?
    25pts behind leader who has Sterling but not Aguero

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Play safe. Aguero is a differential for you already

      1. HappyMonday
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        Cheers

      2. dansmusen
        • 2 Years

        Yes so max that 🙂

    2. dansmusen
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Aguero fot sure. Great differential against you rival.

    3. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Captain who you think will score more points, dont look at your opponents so early in the season.

      1. HappyMonday
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        Problem is I have no idea! 😀

    4. Sloopy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Early days. No need to play catch-up.

  13. La Roja
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    WC template for midfield and forward line:

    Salah KDB Sterling Mount
    Haller Pukki

    You just know it’ll end like this:

    2 2 2 2
    2 2

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years

      That’s fine with me.
      I have that same team. And haven’t WC

    Mornign dzz, Who to bench from?

    A: Perez (BOU) - Good fixture but might not start

    B: Cantwell (whm) - already have pukki, so would be doubling up. Not sure about how Norwich play away from home

    C: King (lei) - could be a tough fixture but hard to call. On pens but no much threat from open play? Haven’t seen any Bournemouth games so hard to tell

      Same boat
      I’m plumping for Greenwood.
      I think this is the best opportunity for a Greenwood start.

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 3 Years

      Go for the wood.

    4. Tambling5

      Unpredictable Spin a coin. Might be worth seeing if Utd team announced before deadline.

    5. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Even a pessimistic type like me plays Greenwood in this scenario

    6. benbro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 9 days ago

      I think Chelsea are rubbish this season and Tammy getting two goals is not going to be repeated.

      SHU have been well organised and whilst I don’t expect them to keep a clean sheet the possibility is greater than of Gwood scoring.

      Word of caution. Lundstram has something like 3 goals in 5 years at all levels and whilst he is playing a bit more advanced this season I wouldn’t expect any regular OOP attacking returns

    Haller or Abraham?

    1. dansmusen
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      I see a problem with Abraham. If he have a average game he could easily get subbed early for Giroud.

    2. mookie
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Haller imo. He'll get more game time and as long as Anderson and Lanzini are fit they will create chances for him. A nailed Abraham will play 70 minutes or so.

      1. BURNS
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 9 days ago

        Haller

    3. benbro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Haller. Better player by about 100%

  20. Little Red Lacazette
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    What happened to the belief of having 2 LFC defenders pre-season. No one thinks they will tighten the back soon?

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      They will once Alison is back

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I do but you have move with the early form

      TAA enough for the mo

    3. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      The whole system change at the back will take time. Allison being out doesn’t help things much either. To double up you’d want at least 3 clean sheets every 5

  21. Maddamotha
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    People not afraid of Lundstram getting like 0 or 1 point? Or are they confident in him getting something attacking wise?

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 9 days ago

      I think you nailed it in the first question

      1. La Roja

        lol

    2. HappyMonday

      I wouldn't be starting him if I didnt have to

    3. mookie
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      I think they are solid. Imo they won't keep many CSs but won't concede more than two often.

    4. benbro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Yes. He’ll get 1 today. Look at his career stats. Attacking returns are rare and even in a more advanced position whose he going to assist? Billy Sharp?

      They are ok at the back though and these overlapping cb’s is unpredictable but seems to work.

  22. Henning

    Good morning.

    I hade a dream last Night that Mane scored 2 goals.
    Should i Captain him over Sterling?

    1. HappyMonday

      No

      He is not the worst choice.

      Martin Luther King has got competition!

      He scored 2 in the last 4-2 victory over Burnley

    5. Little Red Lacazette
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      If you had a dream that Mane scored more more goals than Salah, better wake up and apologize.

  23. MemberMax

    What you guys think..

    Option A (-8 points)
    Martial OUT Mount IN

    Firmino OUT Aguero IN

    King OUT Wesley IN

    Option B (-8 points)

    Martial OUT any 4.5 midfield IN

    Firmino OUT Aguero IN

    King OUT haller IN

    Option C (-8 points)

    Martial OUT any 5.2 midfield IN

    Firmino OUT Aguero IN

    King OUT Abraham IN

    Option D (-4 points)

      TL:DR sorry.

      Think you need to reformat and possibly reduce options.

    1. Lecky Legs FC

      Zouma

  25. tahmur
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Benching Cantwell or Barnes is my dilemma. Surely Liverpool are due a clean sheet now?

    1. Punter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Yikes tough one given the form of Barnes but I'm betting on a Liverpool clean too

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      You can't bench a Norwich attacker in this game - any other options?

    3. benbro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Wow! Nice dilema. Rest of team?

        Mount Salah Sterling KDB
        Barnes Pukki Abraham

        Just Wildcarded.

        1. Funny Face
          • 1 Year

          Very similar to mine below. You just have a better defence. You seem to a much higher team value.

  26. Funny Face
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 9 days ago

    I've hit the panic button and I'm set to go with:

    Ryan (Button)
    Digne, Van Dijk, Mings (Pieters, Lundstram)
    Salah, Sterling, De Bruyne, Mount (Cantwell)
    Abraham, Pukki, Barnes

    Any major errors or suggestions to improve it?

    1. Ruud000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Haller over Abraham

      1. Funny Face
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 9 days ago

        Would need to downgrade elsewhere to afford this.

  27. Merlinho
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    Bench 1 from Fraser, Ashley Barnes, Bernard and McGinn (draft)?

    I should probably bench Bernard but veering towards Barnes because it’s a H2H and I have Matip, plus I’m a Liverpool fan and i hate betting against my team!

  28. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    Play 1 and first bench the other...
    A. Dendoncker (eve, slight fitness doubt).
    B. Greenwood (sou, starting doubt)

  29. Punter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 9 days ago

    Start Emerson over Cantwell, Greenwood? Have Mount for some Chelsea cover but brought Emerson in for a reason may as well play him

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Emerson should 100% start over them, how is that a question

      1. Punter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 9 days ago

        I'm being irrational, so many on here hyping up Cantwell. But I guess it's not hard to imagine Chelsea fail to clean and Emerson blanks a 4th week in a row, whil Cantwell has form and a plum fixture

    2. Freaki
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Cantwell 100% gold fixture against WH

    3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      Emerson yup

    4. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I’m going to presume this is a statement!

  30. jai1212

    Sold on my WC team now, atleast for this week, lol -

    Pope
    VVD Zouma Kelly
    Salah Sterling KDB Mount F.Anderson
    Pukki Rashford

    Button Greenwood Guilbert Lundstram

    A. Havent gone much premium on defense because I dont see points coming from there tbh
    B. Anderson seems like a crazy punt right?

    1. Punter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 9 days ago

      I like it mate, a bit dire on defense but your front 7 should deliver. I love the Anderson pick

    2. Valar(Keith)

      Attack is the new defense.. Ie TAA and Digne. Get them in somehow and enjoy watching 9 attackers every week 🙂
