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.

You can read about how Liverpool and Manchester City assets got on in their respective fixtures on Saturday by clicking the links below, however.

MATCH REPORT: Liverpool 2-1 Brighton and Hove Albion

    Time to sell mount?

    1. Railwayman
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 8 months 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
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months 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
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Just bought him last week

    4. iL PiStOlErO

      1 year, 8 months ago

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

    5. JBG
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      I took him out for Zaha.

    6. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 months 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

    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
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 8 months ago

      They manipulate them, it's a fact.

    2. Party time
        1 year, 8 months 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

        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
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          The threshold is higher/lower based on ownership.

        2. Railwayman
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

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

      • iL PiStOlErO
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Tonight is part two.

      • Bobby Digital
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Good for the peeps who kept him.

      • HashAttack
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 8 months 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

      • el polako

        1 year, 8 months ago

        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
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

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

          1. La Roja

            • 9 Years
            1 year, 8 months ago

            How’s that waste?

            1. iL PiStOlErO
              • 2 Years
              1 year, 8 months 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
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

      Good to go mate? Any suggestion?Next move Pope to ? Kesper,Guita or Hendo?

      1. Sleepless in Settle FPL

              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
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 year, 8 months 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).

    6. unitednations
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      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
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Did Alli and Grealish myself. Sold Mount and Martial.

      2. Bogisa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        B

    7. boc610

      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
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 8 months 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
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

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

      2. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

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

    10. Flynny
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

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

      1. Shatner's Bassoon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

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

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          did it last wk

          1. Flynny
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 8 months ago

            That would be extremely tempting

        2. Better off with a pin and a…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

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

          1. Shatner's Bassoon
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 8 months 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
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

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

          1. Shatner's Bassoon
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 8 months ago

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

        4. HashAttack
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

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

    11. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      martial > grealish or roll the transfer?

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

    12. Totti
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      what do u rather guys?

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

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 2 Years

        B

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        play cantwell

      3. Totti
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

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

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          B 😛

          1. Totti
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 8 months ago

            LOL 🙂

      4. Better off with a pin and a…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 8 months 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
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 8 months 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
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 8 months 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
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Am playing both..

        1. Totti
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          i may do this but have to bench tomori then

      6. Jambot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 8 months 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
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

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

    13. balint84
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

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

        A

    14. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 8 months ago

      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
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

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

        1. Fit_to_drop
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 8 months ago

          Cheers for the input.

          Yeah, was thinking i need a Spurs injection alright

      2. antis0cial
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 8 months 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

    15. internal error
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      What are the chances that Mount is benched?

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Think that there are bigger chances that he plays.

    16. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Might ship Martial on.

      Best 9.3M midfielder? Thinking maybe Alli

      1. internal error
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 8 months 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
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Thinking the same

      3. iL PiStOlErO
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Leave him for Spurs imo.

      4. Tshelby
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 8 months 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
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Alli quite comfortably.

    17. as33
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Mane, Sterling or Vardy for captain?

      1. Jurgen Flopp
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Vardy. Don't overthink it.

      2. iL PiStOlErO
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

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

        1. Jurgen Flopp

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

            Agreed.

      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
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 8 months 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.

      Keep or sell Martial?

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Keep, at least for spurs defence.

        Stop having so much money on your bench...

        Moura > Hayden/Dendoncker

      Best replacement for Lowton?!

      1. JBG
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Kelly or a SHU defender.

    23. fplking14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      Ings or Mousset?

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Mousse

    24. Jacky boy
      • 5 Years

      What would you do here?

      A) abraham to ayew
      B) martial to pulisic
      C) abraham + mount to ayew + pulisic for -4

      Whole team:

      Pope
      Robbo TAA Pereira Chilwell
      Salah Son Martial Mount
      Vardy abraham

      4.0 cantwell kelly greenwood

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Save, let Kelly come on if Tammy is out.

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

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

          1. PascalCygan
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 8 months ago

            Yep, echo both these points

    25. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 months 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. iL PiStOlErO
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        1 or 3. Not a fan of doubling up.

    27. PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      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!

      1. teneighty
        • 6 Years

        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.

      2. Regin
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        alli & son cheaper better options.

    28. davies
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

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

      Other option is Tomori...

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Wait for presser, if no update, start him.

    29. ppv
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 8 months ago

      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

      1. ppv
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

        Sorry reply to Pascal

        1. PascalCygan
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 8 months ago

          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!

      2. ppv
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 8 months ago

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

      Anything here worth a hit?
