Scoutcast crew discuss FPL stubbornness and Spurs assets

The Scoutcast crew have a busy evening of Fantasy Premier League discussion ahead of them.

Join Joe, Az and Lee from 20:00 GMT to 21:00 GMT for episode 309 on our YouTube channel.

While Spurs and Manchester City play their latest Champions League matches, our panel of pundits will be focussing on these two teams in particular.

The arrival of Jose Mourinho in north London has the potential to unlock several Fantasy assets while Sergio Aguero’s (£11.9m) injury could see Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) get a run of starts.

Meanwhile, our talking point revolves around the concept of stubbornness in FPL.

How long is too long to wait for a player to become good? At what point do you recognise that the in-form option you don’t own won’t stop scoring?

Tune in shortly to find out!

            Who should be my captain

            Kane
            Vardy
            Mane

            1. Bobby9
                15 days, 4 hours ago

                Mane

                15 days, 4 hours ago

                We know the sensible option is Vardy, but i can see Mane/Salah winning this time

              • olidooley
                • 7 Years
                15 days, 4 hours ago

                Mané for me. Vardy a close 2nd

              • FDMS All Starz
                • 4 Years
                15 days, 4 hours ago

                Toss between mane and vardy

              • De Gea is GOAT
                • 2 Years
                15 days, 4 hours ago

                Can't look past a rested Vardy vs a very shaky EVE defence.

              Gtg here? Save FT? 0.3 itb only

              Gazzaniga
              Robertson TAA Lundstram
              Mané (c) KDB Maddison Mount
              Abraham Vardy (vc) Jiménez

              McGovern Söyüncü Willems Dendoncker

              Will monitor Zaha and Moura as potential Mount replacements then

                  Yh better yu keep an eye on zaha :)....nd yu can switch to 4-3-3...by swaping soy to mount...this gw 🙂

                    15 days, 4 hours ago

                    Chelsea at home to a woeful West Ham though. If Mount starts he’ll be in the points

                    1. olidooley
                      • 7 Years
                      15 days, 4 hours ago

                      And it’s probably his last game in my team....gotta give him a chance.

                  1. Bobby9
                      15 days, 4 hours ago

                      Kante

                    • Jullepuu
                        15 days, 4 hours ago

                        Hayden because the extra cash should be spent elsewhere

                      Planning on doing Jimmy to Kane on FT? Yay or nay? Will be making Kane captain against BOU. Current team:

                      Pope
                      TAA Soy Chilwell
                      Mane KDB Pulisic Mount
                      Vardy Tammy Jimmy

                      Bench: Lundy Rico Saka; 3.5itb

                      1. olidooley
                        • 7 Years
                        15 days, 4 hours ago

                        Jiménez has been great last 2 weeks and he has the fixtures too. Leave it

                        1. KGFC
                          • 3 Years
                          15 days, 4 hours ago

                          I know but just think he's played too much already. So either his output will start regressing or he will see reduced minutes. For Kane, there seems to be a feel good factor back at Spurs. And he is nailed, won't get rotated and gives a nice differential captain option.

                          1. Squeakybum99
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                            15 days, 4 hours ago

                            Go with Kane if your gut says he will explode. Jimi has been playing minutes forever and the same thing was said before, he really is a machine but his ceiling isn't higher than Kane. He will tick along nicely as oppose to exploding. If the price difference is fine for you, Kane is the right choice.

                            1. KGFC
                              • 3 Years
                              15 days, 3 hours ago

                              Yeah, most likely I will. I agree to both your points regarding Jimmy's minutes and his capped ceiling. Thanks!

                        15 days, 4 hours ago

                        Would rather sell Mount for Son

                        1. KGFC
                          • 3 Years
                          15 days, 4 hours ago

                          Giving Mount one more game. Against WHU, if he starts, should get something. I think Lamp likes him too much to bench him against sides outside of top 4.

                      Arsenal looking at Nuno Santo to replace Emery. What do you think he will do at Arsenal? He is definitely a better coach than Emery but is he the right man for a big club like Arsenal?

                      1. KGFC
                        • 3 Years
                        15 days, 4 hours ago

                        If they want to chance, then rather do it with Eddie Howe or Sean Dyche.

                        With Auba and Laca wanting out, Nuno would be crazy to move atm.

                      3. Hakim Ziyech
                          15 days, 3 hours ago

                          Nuno too defensive. He loves his philosophy more than his balls.Imagine Arsenal playing 5-2-3 counter attacking football. Pochettino/ Nagelsman are the men Arsenal should consider

                      4. George Agdgdgwngo
                        • 10 Years
                        15 days, 4 hours ago

                        With Aguero out, is it sensible to switch

                        sterling to son?

                        1. KGFC
                          • 3 Years
                          15 days, 4 hours ago

                          The opposite actually. Can see Sterling playing more central as a result. I'd hold him if I had him.

                        How she looking? Lunds on the bench is always a worry!

                        Pope
                        TAA Robbo Soyuncu
                        Pulisic Son Mane Maddison

                            15 days, 4 hours ago

                            would you play him over anyone? I think my move to get Robbo last week will ruin me over the coming weeks with a benching headache!

                              I was going to comment that the double up on Liv defenders is not neccessary because there is so much value AND form/fixtures going on in defense. The money tied up doesn't look like a problem though. It's a good problem to have, anyway.

                              1. Rinseboy

                          it should be on paper and will end up being 40 with everyone blanking and accas getting busted all over the place from shock results!

                          Changing Ryan to Henderson now, or wait one week and change Ryan to Guaita. I don't want to take a hit for a GK..

                            How does this sound.

                            Keep sterling for a couple of weeks to assess if the non kun factor helps his points

                                Sounds good but if Sterling picks up the fifth yellow card..

                                  3 games in 1 week coming up. That will be massive for those who make good decisions and have a bit of luck.

                                  Benching headache:
                                  Pope (button)
                                  Aurier soyuncu Lundy robbo (Rico)
                                  Kdb son martial mane (Hayden)
                                  Tammy Jimmy vardy

                                  Not able to pick one of Lundy or soyuncu for this week. Front 7 I think are all good and should be played
