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. FirMinaMiMo
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Mane

    2. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

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

    3. olidooley
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Mané for me. Vardy a close 2nd

    4. FDMS All Starz
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Toss between mane and vardy

    5. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

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

  4. olidooley
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    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

    1. FirMinaMiMo
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

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

      1. olidooley
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

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

        1. olidooley
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

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

    Who's the best midfield bench fodder for 5.0 or less?

    1. FirMinaMiMo
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Kante

    2. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Hayden because the extra cash should be spent elsewhere

  6. KGFC

    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
      • 8 Years

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

      1. KGFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 1 month 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
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 1 month 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
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

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

    2. Karan14

      Would rather sell Mount for Son

      1. KGFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 1 month 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.

  7. ZeBestee

    1 year, 1 month ago

    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
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

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

    2. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

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

    3. Party time
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month 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

  8. George Agdgdgwngo
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    With Aguero out, is it sensible to switch

    sterling to son?

    1. KGFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

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

  9. Rinseboy
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

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

    Pope
    TAA Robbo Soyuncu
    Pulisic Son Mane Maddison
    Vardy Tammy Jimi
    Button Lunds Cantwell Rico

    1. olidooley
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Lundstram over Söyüncü for me

    2. bigbudgie
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Not a bad first sub to have to be fair

      1. Rinseboy
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month 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!

        1. bigbudgie
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          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
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            true may as well ride it out till gw18 and then lose one then. cheers

        2. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          U wud need the first sub over next GWs anyway

  10. bigbudgie
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Is this gonna be one of those weeks where the average is about 80?!

    1. Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      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!

  11. Gunner Boy
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Mendy > TAA/Robertson for -4

    Yes or No?

    1. YEAH PITCH!
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      No

    2. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Probably wait and do it next gameweek for free.

  12. Riggs
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    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..

    1. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      That's a tough one for sure. I like Guaita better

  13. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    There's a hurrikane kame coming lads....

  14. George Agdgdgwngo
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    How does this sound.

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

    Switch
    Maddy & Mount
    >
    Tieliemens & Moura

    Gives a bit of spurs cover

    1. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

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

  15. Jullepuu
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 1 month ago

    How did Sterling look last night? Did Son look better?

  16. The Man Pastore
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Pope
    TAA Chilwell Lundstram Lowton Kelly
    Mane KDB Maddison Mount Cantwell
    Vardy Jesus Abraham

    1FT/ 0.1ITB

    A) Lowton --> Cahill (or other 4.5 def)
    B) Pope --> Henderson
    C) Save

    Cheers!

    1. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Save

  17. ZeBestee
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

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

  18. amitmishr
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    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

  19. The Man Pastore
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Pope
    TAA Chilwell Lundstram Lowton Kelly
    Mane KDB Maddison Mount Cantwell
    Vardy Jesus Abraham

    1FT/ 0.1ITB

    A) Lowton --> Cahill (or other 4.5 def)
    B) Pope --> Henderson
    C) Other
    D) Save
