FPL Gameweek 14 review: what we learned from the weekend’s matches

Almost exactly 48 hours separate the completion of Gameweek 14 with the deadline for Gameweek 15, so the quick turnaround means we are unable to bring you individual Scout Notes on all ten Premier League matches that took place this weekend.

    Time to sell mount?

    1. Railwayman
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I own him and I would say yes. My plan is to swap Pope for Henderson tomorrow which leads me to a question is a hit for Zaha/Pulišić worth it this week ?

      1. lindeg

        7 months, 11 days ago

        not for a hit, think cho comes in for puli, and i dont see more attacking potential in zaha v bournemouth than mount v villa

      He gets one more game for me before he's most likely out for one of Alli/Son/Pulisic.

      Still Salah(C) I see...

      🙄

      1. Jacky boy
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Just bought him last week

    4. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Not now with Tammy situation, at least until the news.

    5. JBG
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I took him out for Zaha.

    6. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Sold him last night - otherwise my SV would have gone down another 100K

      Brought in Fleck (4.8) as a real 5th midfielder - gives me enough to upgrade Pulisic to Alli and bring in Guaita

  2. Railwayman
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Tammy sold by more than 1 million managers and yet his price went down just once ? This season is really weird when it comes to prices, especially drops.

    1. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 11 days ago

      They manipulate them, it's a fact.

    2. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      As long as human beings are in managing the game, there will always be biased thinking & judgement.

      I prefer Monkeys to control this game

    3. drughi

      A bit odd I must say, they rise very quickly but the highly owned players seems very hard to drop in price. KDB and now Abraham comes to mind. Meanwhile boly who isnt owned by alot of managers dropped 0.2 just like that. Something fishy going on

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        The threshold is higher/lower based on ownership.

      2. Railwayman
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        And the Martial episode was odd, at least to say.

    4. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Tonight is part two.

    5. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Good for the peeps who kept him.

    6. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      He was over 100% last night, more so than Mount ... check this morning and Tammy was back to 90% whilst Mount had dropped and was already down 10%

      Could be wildcards but it seems unlikely

    7. el polako

      All Chelsea forwards were priced kindly at the start beacasue nobody knew who will be main man.

      Now we know, Chelsea is doing well so Tammy looks underpiced - towers protect his value to make game more difficult.

      Salah needs to go

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        For who? Just don't say Mane cause it is waste of ft.

        1. La Roja
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          How’s that waste?

          1. iL PiStOlErO
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 11 days ago

            I just think it is all in the past now. I meant Mane is not that better that makes me wanna change Mo for him imho. Next 5 gw Mo can have 3 double digits and no one would be surprised by that.

      2. Warby84

        Think I’ll hold for time being

            yes thinking the same mate

  5. TheDragon

    Hi All - Would appreciate your thoughts.
    2FT and 0.5 ITB

    Ryan
    TAA, Robbo, Soy, Lund
    Mane, KDB, Tielmans, Mount
    Vardy, Jimenez
    Button l Abraham, Rico, Dendoncker

    If Abraham is fit: what to do with 2FT?!
    A) Ryan -> Henderson (to avoid burning one)
    B) Tielmans or Mount -> Zaha
    C) Tielmans & Mount -> Son & Cantwell (and play 4-3-4)

    If Abraham isn’t fit:
    A) Abraham & Mount - > Ings & Pulisic
    B) Abraham & Mount/ Tielemans -> Rashford & Grealish
    C) Something else?

    1. Olivier Bernards watch
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I sold Tammy, but based on the premise that he was quite likely to miss more than 1 game. At this stage, it seems he will miss at most one more game, which means I would definitely hold him if I still had him.

      And of the first three options, I guess that A is plausibly the best (although i'd prefer Guaita).

    Not sure what to do with Martial (7.7m); Mount (6.6m); + 1.4m..so thats a total of 15.7m. Which combo would you want from gw16? Plan to WC in gw20

    A: Pulisic + Maddison
    B: Son + Grealish
    C: Alli + Pulisic (-4) as i would need to downgrade Lascelles (benchfodder) > Kelly (benchfodder) to raise 0.3m
    D: Alli + Maddison (-4)
    E: Alli + Zaha

    I think given that spurs have 3 home fix between gw16-19..i would want some cover there...

    1. Nickemon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Did Alli and Grealish myself. Sold Mount and Martial.

    2. Bogisa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B

    it will never ever sink in Mustafi has a world cup winners medal. has to be one of the most clueless defenders I've ever seen in the Premier League

  8. Scout Picks Community Champion Lottery – Gameweek 15
    Rotation's Alter Ego
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    A tough week for all involved but the Scouts once again emerged victorious with a strong 48-37 victory. Now though, it starts to get really tricky. With the gameweeks coming thick and fast, will rotation push some new differentials to the fore? Would you dare look away from the high scoring Vardy? Will City return to winning ways?

    Think you have the eye to pick the perfect FPL players and form a winning team vs the Scout Picks? We need a Community Champion to represent us vs the Scout Picks for Gameweek 15.

    The Community Champion picks a team including a captain to go up against the Scout Picks, within a budget of 83m and in a playable FPL formation. Whichever Gameweek champion beats the Scout’s team by the largest margin will win a £100 Amazon Voucher!

    If you're interested in applying, email Geoff (geoff@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk) with your FFS username and FPL Team ID.

    The Champion will be picked 9am tomorrow morning, so make sure to enter quickly! Due to the midweek gameweek, the Champion then has until midday on Tuesday to send in their team plus a captain. It will be a quick turnaround, so please keep an eye on your emails at 9!

    Good luck!

    Reading that article got me thinking it might be a good idea to get rid of Kane and bring Alli in?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      It certainly isn't bad idea. Too much money for Kane in current form.

    2. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      He was totally off the pace, why did I do it?

  10. Flynny
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Those who still have tammy need to keep and hope for the best on Wednesday I guess.....

    1. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      what about those of us who have Tammy but don't have Jimenez? Unbelievably tempting move.

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        did it last wk

        1. Flynny
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          That would be extremely tempting

      2. Better off with a pin and a…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        I've just done that. Jimenez stats and fixtures better than Tammy at the moment. Hope it works out!

        1. FPLGraham
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Fair enough but I think fixtures about equal in the short term (next 4).

          Also I guess team situation another factor. Posted earlier about wanting to get 2 Spurs in for GW16 and saving a transfer lets me do that...

          Pretty sure Jimmy will punish me though!

      3. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Tempting but have Mousset as first sub if Tammy doesn't play, so hoping that is sufficient cover

        1. FPLGraham
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Likewise so think it's probably an easy enough save.

      4. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        I sold Tammy for Rashford but considering Jimenez > Tammy, when he is ready

  11. Tonyawesome69

    martial > grealish or roll the transfer?

      Roll, Spurs leaking goals and MU's problem isn't scoring goals atm.

  12. Totti
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    what do u rather guys?

    A) play cantwell
    B) play mount
    C) mount-> son or alli (-4)

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      B

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      play cantwell

    3. Totti
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      then it's 1 to 1 🙂
      need more replies to take the decision 🙂

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        B 😛

        1. Totti
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          LOL 🙂

          yea I got it mate 🙂

    4. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      A or B. I prefer B as NOR are away, but they could do well on the counterattack against Southampton so it's a coin toss.

      1. Totti
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        but i don't have a spurs coverage against man u
        do u still prefer A Or B ?

        1. Better off with a pin and a…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Personally don't think it's worth a -4 for an away game against MUN when you can have Mount at home against Villa. If you want Spurs cover I'd save the FT this week and get Alli or Son the week after.

    5. SHOWSTOPPERRR
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Am playing both..

      1. Totti
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        i may do this but have to bench tomori then

    6. Jambot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I have Cantwell mount and Alli. I’ve benched cantwell but I’m uncomfortable about I can see mount getting one point as cantwell is loving life without buendia. I just can’t bench mount for that fixture

      1. Totti
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        i'm on the same boat 🙂
        don't know what to do really

  13. balint84
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    A) play Rico
    B) buy Willems or Dunk and play

    1. iL PiStOlErO

      A

    2. Tonyawesome69

  14. Fit_to_drop

      Pulling Trigger on WC.

      Current team - In good shape but ready to use WC

      Pope Ryan
      TAA, Robbo, Lund, Smith, Kelly
      Mane, KDB, Cantwell, Perez, Pulisic
      Vardy, Jimmy, Tammy

      Don't plan on wholesale changes. Maybe 3-4.

      What changes would you fancy?

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Sell Pulisic if Tammy is fit. Need a Spurs cover. Pope out, Perez nice differential.

        1. Fit_to_drop
            7 months, 11 days ago

            Cheers for the input.

            Yeah, was thinking i need a Spurs injection alright

        2. antis0cial
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          I'd only have one of TAA/Robbo. Pope to Hendo or Guaita pick up Martin as 2nd Keeper. Get Ali or Son in. Lose Smith

      2. internal error
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        What are the chances that Mount is benched?

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Think that there are bigger chances that he plays.

      3. Bubz
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Might ship Martial on.

        Best 9.3M midfielder? Thinking maybe Alli

        1. internal error
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Alli or Pulisic for me. Alli looked a goal threat on the weekend but not so against West ham.

        2. Aladdin Sané
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Thinking the same

        3. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Leave him for Spurs imo.

        4. Tshelby
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          I did Martial -> Alli yesterday. Feels good to have a spurs player and Mourinho likes him to score so I think it's a good move

        5. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Alli quite comfortably.

      4. as33
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Mane, Sterling or Vardy for captain?

        1. Jurgen Flopp
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Vardy. Don't overthink it.

        2. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 11 days ago

          This weeks party has potential to be big one, hangovers incoming.

          1. Jurgen Flopp
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            Vardy will see this game as an opportunity to further increase his goal tally.

            1. iL PiStOlErO
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 11 days ago

              Agreed.

      5. Oldie99
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Just having watched City recently I don’t see the normal explosiveness there, 4 toughish fixtures coming up + a new wildcard soon thereafter if needed SO

        with all that in mind I am think

        Raz KDB to Salah and Son for -4, thoughts?

        This would keep both mount and Tammy in the team, have Trent and VVD also

        1. CroatianHammer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          You have to keep KdB. Price is 0.4 off if you sold yesterday, must be the same today. Sterling I sold. But he's facing a price drop so might get him back soon.

      6. Aladdin Sané
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Keep or sell Martial?

            Stop having so much money on your bench...

            Kelly or a SHU defender.

        • fplking14

          Ings or Mousset?

            Save, let Kelly come on if Tammy is out.

              This. If you kept him keep him one more on the bench. Mason should play this one.

                Yep, echo both these points

        • Bobby Digital
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Tammy better stay on that bench if he doesn't start... don't want no 1pt cameo.

          Afternoon everyone.
          Pope has been a great signing for my squad but Burnley’s upcoming fixtures look dreadful.
          Should I go:
          1). Keep Pope and hope for the best
          2). Pope to Henderson
          3). Pope to Gazzaninga

          Option (2) means doubling up on Sheff Utd as I’ve Lord Lundstram

            1 or 3. Not a fan of doubling up.

          Anyone else regretting buying Kane?

          Brought him and Pulisic in for Sterling and Abraham for GW14. Seemed sensible. Shocker.

          Both FTs but ended up with 47 and my theoretical future transfers are already piling up. Doh!

            I was aware of the risk but the potential upside made me go for it right after the Mourinho news. Will give him a few more gameweeks.

            alli & son cheaper better options.

        • davies
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Would you start Tammy if you held him for this week?

          Other option is Tomori...

            Wait for presser, if no update, start him.

          Yes I vowed to never have him again but bought the troll this week, Have sold him and Donkey for -4 and bought Ings and Alli

              Thanks! Good moves. I brought Ings in last night, but for Connolly. Going to give Kane one or two more then do something similar to you with Alli/Son and Jimi/Mousset. Kicking myself!

            Kicking myself as well. Kane was playing so deep. Not good FPL asset. At least I didn't captain
