Scoutcast Episode 303 – Template Busting

Are we witnessing the end of the early-season template?

Liverpool have daunting fixtures and alternative captaincy shouts are emerging each week.

Meanwhile, Manchester City assets still look strong, but are beset with injury and rotation fears.

Could it be time to turn our attention away from the North-West of England for our premium picks and towards the East Midlands and North London?

In this latest Scoutcast episode, Joe is joined by Karam and Who Got The Assist’s Tom to look back on Gameweek 7 and ahead to Gameweek 8 and beyond.

Topping the bill is the crew’s attempt to assess which premium-priced and captainable assets to target and which to consider ditching.

By happy coincidence, Karam is on the verge of Wildcarding and gives a sneak preview of his ambitious plans as the second international break of the season approaches.

The ascent of Riyad Mahrez gets an airing as does a stock check on the promoted teams. It looks like Fantasy managers may have to look elsewhere for whipping boys, with the three top-flight newcomers all exhibiting considerable promise.

Tom takes his turn to select a differential, the best clean prospects are examined and a Trainspotting analogy also features in this packed 80-minute episode.

      KDB injury is a spanner in the works for most teams with him, Kun and no Sterling.

      Could always just do KDB to Son and keep Kun. Just does not make sense keeping either KDB or Kun right now.

      1. Arfaish

        Why would you not keep KDB? Sounds like one week max out and potentially even making the wolves game

        1. FOO FIGHTER
            19 days, 17 hours ago

            KDB ain't going to feature if he does not train.

            And managers always try to save face regarding the severity of injuries for their biggest players.

              I think it's more likely the severity of the injury is being exaggerated to get De Bruyne out of a meaningless international game.

                  Could be but Belgium National team would have requested an injury report surely?

            I'd argue that Son isnt a great pick right now

            1. Big Hands Barry
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              19 days, 17 hours ago

              How come?

              1. Legend of Rosický
                • 1 Year
                19 days, 17 hours ago

                Played 5 games straight in the PL, 90 mins last night as well. And has 2 games coming up in IB. I think he is primed for a rest in either GW8 or 9.

                Also spurs arent looking like they are going to Roll over teams at the moment, except for the one game vs Palace, the have been mediocre before and after.

            2. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              19 days, 17 hours ago

              Spurs' form isn't great but he has returned in his last 5 starts (including last night)

            3. Lanley Staurel
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              19 days, 17 hours ago

              He is still a decent pick without doubt.

              1. Legend of Rosický
                • 1 Year
                19 days, 16 hours ago

                Decent pick, he has been getting one attacking return a game and no baps or CS points because Spurs mostly always concede and opposition players as well as Kane share baps.
                Is 9.5m really worth it for 5-7 points per game when Mount, McGinn, Yarmolenko and potential Maddison are consistently returning the same?

                  • 1 Year
                  19 days, 16 hours ago

                  I would be in no rush to get him in, But OK to keep if you own him.

          • Zlatanzo
              19 days, 16 hours ago

              Why remove KDB? Wasting a transfer to get him out when he's only missing one game?

          • Energetics

            Pope Button
            TAA Digne Otamendi Lundy Rico
            Salah KDB Mount McGinn Cantwell
            Aguero Abraham Pukki

            How does this sound.
            Aguero to Aubameyang this week.
            Digne and McGinn to Soyuncu and Mahrez next.

            Yes or No?

            1. Arfaish
              • 7 Years
              19 days, 17 hours ago

              First part absolutely. Mahrez still worries me but if B. Silva gets a ban then he looks a great option and yet to both

              1. Energetics
                • 4 Years
                19 days, 17 hours ago

                Yeah more B silva ban is in my head.

                Think I will pull the trigger on aguero to Aubameyang after his midweek game

            Pope
            TAA - Lundstram - Otamendi
            Salah - KDB* - Son - Mount
            Abraham - Auba - Pukki
            ———————————————
            Button: Cantwell, Hanley, Gibson

            1FT, 0.0 ITB

            If i were to be tempted to get Sterling in for KDB, who makes way to allow it to happen?
            KDB > Sterling leaves -2.4.
            Would have to be Son or Mount wouldn’t it 🙁

            Any insights here welcome lads, thanks.

            I’m ooking at you mate Legend of Rosicky haha! 🙂

            1. ZICO SENNA

              Or.......Pukki > Aguero and KDB > 4.4m but that seems daft

                Or.....straight Salah > Sterling, i just don’t know lol

                    Strange times...

                    • 1 Year
                    19 days, 17 hours ago

                    But in all seriousness, I would get downgrade Son, not Mount. Maybe McGinn/Yarmo or even Maddison.

                  3. ZICO SENNA
                    • 8 Years
                    19 days, 17 hours ago

                    Haha! We live in strange times indeed 🙂
                    Yeah Maddison could be a decent shout, or Yarmolenko, not overly keen on McGinn

            2. FOO FIGHTER
                19 days, 17 hours ago

                I would keep Mount. His fixtures are delicious.

                1. ZICO SENNA
                  • 8 Years
                  19 days, 17 hours ago

                  I know yeah and i love him as a pick in my team, just the thought that i already had Abraham

                  1. FOO FIGHTER
                      19 days, 17 hours ago

                      I would rather lose Tammy than Mount.

                    • Legend of Rosický
                      • 1 Year
                      19 days, 17 hours ago

                      Honestly would get rid of Tammy before Mount. Bats is knocking on the door and I can see them being rotated soon, especially if he scores tonight (I think he will start)

                      At the very least, I think he will start getting subbed off at 60 when ineffective

                      1. ZICO SENNA
                        • 8 Years
                        19 days, 17 hours ago

                        That could very well happen, bats is lethal. But my poor Tammy....would hate to see him leave

                  Of all your options, the easiest to go without is Son. He's still in differential territory so you won't lose rank by losing him. With such tight ranks at the moment, OR-safety-based moves still count

                  Add this to the problems in camp and Son's stats not really up there with the likes of Sterling and Tammy, and it's easier to let him go

                  And that's before we talk about these dudes you can get who could match Son and you're sure would start GW9: Yarmo, McGinn, Madders

                  1. ZICO SENNA
                    • 8 Years
                    19 days, 17 hours ago

                    Nicely summarised, thanks for that bud, makes a lot of sense. A bit to ponder then before deadline, bloody love Son but it’s hard to argue with what ya say.

                      You're welcome 🙂

                      I had high hopes for Son as well and almost sold KDB for him after GW5. Feels like a distant memory now

                Looking to move Salah and Greenwood but for which two?

                A) Vardy + Son
                B) Auba + Yarmolenko

                1. Jarvish Scott Talent

                  B I think - look at the long run of fixtures Auba has. Nom nom nom.

                    Yeah I have no arsenal either and really want involved with those fixtures

                Need to bench one of these but can make a case for all to start. Help please.

                A) Diop
                B) AWB
                C) Cantwell
                D) Lundstram

                    19 days, 17 hours ago

                    U have to play Lunds & Cantwell, then your choice between AWB and Diop. Diop @ home but Fab is now out, so probably not gonna be as tight at the back from now on.
                    AWB may well be sick, so the deicion might be made for you anyways. I would probably play AWB away at Newcaslte, Diop first on bench.

                      You’ve given me food for thought. Currently have Lund on bench. Why do you think he’s a definite?

                        He's an attacker playing THAT Watford defence

                          Lunds is nearly captain material vs Watford, if Lunds was @ home I dare say he would be captain material for the brave.
                          And Cantwell only home fixture in last 2, if he getting something its in this game vs Villa.

                            I'm genuinely debating Lund cap... it's him or Otamendi for me this week (as my other two MCity are KDB and Sterling).

                                19 days, 16 hours ago

                                super brave, but he has to be @ home for me I think.

                                Why not Sterling then? Iv currently got the armband on him

                                  Just so hard to Predict Pep isn't it? I think Otamendi and Ederson are bordering on being the only certanties...

                                      sterling surely starts, goal and assist last night. Looks good for the arm band to me

                                    • Marko1985

                                      I see where your coming from. I think with the international break straight after next gameweek Pep should play his strongest team. Especially with KDB possibly out. I think Sterling starts

                                    19 days, 16 hours ago

                                    2 defenders up for captaincy? Madness

                            D for me but agree all could be in the points

                            Should have included fixtures in original post.

                            A) Diop (CRY)
                            B) AWB (new)
                            C) Cantwell (AVL)
                            D) Lundstram (wat)

                              I'd still bench Diop. Zaha's finally back to life, and Fab is out for 2+ months with a notoriously bad keeper replacing him and West Ham having horrible defensive stats even in their three CS gameweeks

                          I think it was the great Mahatma Ghandi who once said:

                          “Sometimes the hardest action of all in FPL, is to take no action”

                          This “feels” like one of those situations

                              For another week anyways

                              its true that, and spending alot of time on here, youtube and twitter over the week is bad and almost encourages action. I honestly think its better to spend minimal time here during the week, just keep an eye on news and save your rtansfers as often as you can. 2 FTs give you alot more options and more data

                              When you see people making moves all the time, taking hits and whatever it makes you feel a bit more safe about doing it as well. But at the end of the day the people here make up not even 1% of the total players. Illustrated by the fact that some players here who gain popularity like Yarmolenko for instance are still owned owned by a very small amount of managers but if you absed their ownerhsip on how often you see them mentioned here you could be forgiven for thinking they have 15% ownership not 3.

                                Well said FFXI

                                I have to say the series ended with FFVII for me, which I think is still one of, if not THE most jaw dropping experiences i’ve Ever ha delaying that as a kid

                                Never enjoyed any of the next 3, as good as they probably were - but I think a lot of it is which one you played first - whichever it was is usually a person’s favourite

                                Anyhoo

                                You are wise beyond the years of your badge to have so quickly observed the lack of correlation between FFS consensus and FPL point delivery 😉

                              I think Im sitting.. Doesnt feel good but a hit feels less good. Reminding myself that -4 is a pretty big rank difference and that as long as I have someone coming off the benchf or KDB (James for me) a -4 is probably not Worth it even if getting in someone like Son for KDB

                                        ah he could get something, Hanley might not even start and then im lumped with Rico away to Arsenal.
                                        😮 it really couldnt be much worse

                                        Unless some miracle occurs and Greenwood actually gets some minutes (he will be first on bench)

                                    Sitting in this context I think is the wiser move tbh

                                    Especially with the proximity to the international break and the notorious fraud that is Pep being involved

                                Should I switch Pepe and Son for Mane and Yarmolenko/Buendia for a hit, and if I do who's the better option, Yarmolenko or Buendia ?
                                My team would look like this:
                                Pope
                                Tomori | Otamendi | Lundstram (Gulbert, Hanley)
                                Salah | Sterling | Mount | Mane | Yarmolenko OR Buendia
                                Abraham | Haller (Greenwood)

                                  I'm looking at getting in Pepe or Son 😀

                                    Hahaha, well I don't really want to sell Son, but Pepe right now is a shadow of himself, and I really feel that it might hurt me keeping him in my squad. I dunno what to do to be honest. Wait for him some more time ( and I have him since Totenham game) or get rid of him asap ...

                                    I wouldn’t make the change now, Arsenal and Tottenham both have good fixtures and Liverpool next 3 games won’t be high scoring in my opinion. If you do want to do the transfer then get Yarmolenko. Norwich right now seems a bit off but are due to make a comeback.

                                      They do have good fixtures, but I fear that Spurs are in a ditch right now after Bayern tormented them last night and Pepe lookd awfull. Perhaps the best thing is to give him another GW and to have 2 FT for international break....

                                  Has anyone seen Pepe play? Interested in getting either him or Son for KDB. Other possibilities are Mount and Yarmolenko. Opinions?

                                      Yarmolenko has alright fixtures coming up and is each than Mount but his next 4 games should be good for him. Yarmolenko only 6mil for a mid who plays striker with an unselfish striker partner.

                                      I've seen Pepe play. I've seen Pepe prove that he's overpriced by a delta of 3.0M+

                                      Get Mount.

                                      He was terrible against Man U on Monday. A few very wayward shots and out shone by the younger Saka.

                                          Add martial to that list. Big money signing himself, so is Pulisic. 9.5m was a baffling starting price

                                        I have the misfortune to be a proud owner of Pepe from Totenham game, and he's been nothing short of a bum. I watched every Arsenal game since then, and I don't know what to do with him. He's has some potential, but right now he's showing nothing, his body language is bad, his shots are well off target... Also, I'm scared to ship him out before Bournemouth game, because I fear that if I do so, he'll score twice on Sunday just to punish me for not trusting him enough.

                                        Seen pepe play every game this season. His fpl price should be around the 6.5 m mark.

                                          I have Guendozi to come on for KDB if he doesn't play, and then hopefully he'll be fine after the break.

                                          Sterling or Aguero captain.

                                            If KdB misses the game, play Ayew(whu) or transfer in a better player for the GW?

                                              Ayew might not be bad for the West Ham game, so I'd trust the bench on this one and save the FT except if KDB's announced out for long

                                                The thing is I also am playing Diop(CRY) & expecting him to keep a CS. I don't think Ayew will score.

                                                  Might be a case of hedged bets to have both, then. I'm not sure there are many better forwards at that range. If you can afford the likes of Wood and Tammy, then go for it

                                            Watching highlights of the Spurs/Southampton game. What was LLoris thinking. Trying to dribble Ings and failing miserably. 8 year old cut back dribble is a beaut!!

                                                Lack of concerntration probably. Funny mistake, he made up for it with some good saves though.
                                                If only we could combine the hands of Lloris with the feet of Gazzaniga, we would have one an epic keeper 😀

                                                  Yeah, his saves did save spurs embarrassment. Feet of Alison, would a god of a keeper!

                                                      he went to apologise to the fans after and they were chanting his name so that sums up his performance really.

                                                        Yeah he takes some set pieces, and is in general an attacking fullback.

                                                Saw someone say something about Cantwell being injured, any truth to that?

                                                  Who else is benching KDB even if Pep says he'll be in the squad?

                                                  Almost a clear case of being out of the XI for this one... Maybe 15 mins off the bench or something

                                                  Okay, I might be overthinking this, but KDB's on my bench now

                                                    Pep's comments on why he benched Aguero enforce this doubt X_X

                                                    You are overthinking it now. Just wait for more information and keep in your starting 11 for now, made the decision closer to the deadline

                                                            Haller not a great FPL option

                                                              Haller seems to rely on counter attacking to get returns, in his next 5 I dont see many oppurtunities to play that kind of game unless West Ham can get an early goal and force their opponents to open up. Probably more suited to playing against sides who take them game to them
