Scout Picks

Gameweek 16 Scout Picks built on Liverpool and Leicester

Liverpool and Leicester continue to act as the spine for the Scout Picks yet again this season.

The two clubs account for four players in the selection for Gameweek 16, which kicks off on Saturday afternoon with Chelsea’s trip to Everton.

As per usual, we line up in the 3-4-3 formation and fell just within the budget this time, on £82.9m.

Goalkeeper

Guaita has recorded back-to-back clean sheets for Palace

Vicente Guaita (£5.0m) has now delivered two eight-point hauls in a row as interest in Crystal Palace defence continues to rise. Having kept out both Burnley and Bournemouth, the Eagles travel to Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon to face a Watford side that has registered the fewest shots on target of any Premier League team in their last four home matches. Meanwhile, Guaita himself has produced three saves in seven of his last eight outings.

Defenders

Alexander-Arnold has three assists in his last two matches

After showing potential for so long without delivering, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) now has three assists in his last two Premier League matches. Over the last four, no Liverpool player has created more than his nine chances so there is every chance that more attacking returns will follow in Gameweek 16. Furthermore, Bournemouth have mustered just three big chances since Gameweek 12, the joint-lowest in the league, so there is some clean sheet potential too.

Serge Aurier (£4.9m) can continue to offer value in the Spurs defence, even if it’s taking a little time to build up clean sheet potential under Jose Mourinho. A home meeting with Burnley could be just the time to get that first shutout under the new regime, as the Clarets are in the bottom three for shots on target of their last four away matches. Meanwhile, Aurier himself is third among all Spurs players for key passes since Mourinho’s first match in Gameweek 13.

Crystal Palace might be short a few first-choice defensive options but should still fancy their chances of a clean sheet in Gameweek 16. They face a Watford side that has blanked in six of their last 10 league games and will be encouraged by the performances of Cheikhou Kouyaté and Jeffrey Schlupp, who filled in at centre-back and left-back when required against Bournemouth. Therefore, nailed-on budget man Martin Kelly (£4.1m) is an easy inclusion in the Scout Picks for the weekend.

Midfielders

Mané is in excellent form for Liverpool right now

Sadio Mané (£12.3m) lit up Gameweek 15 with his scintillating 15-point haul against Everton and arguably should have pushed himself into the 20s after missing two big chances. We believe the Liverpool man will do enough to avoid rotation against Bournemouth, who have conceded at least twice in three of their last four Premier League games.

Dele Alli (£8.6m) has exploded into life since Jose Mourinho arrived at Tottenham Hotspur. The midfielder has played in four matches in all competitions and has amassed a total of five attacking returns in them, from four goals and one assist. While Spurs looked below par against Manchester United, Alli still displayed his quality with a well-taken goal at Old Trafford. A home meeting with Burnley, who have struggled against the bigger clubs this season could see him continue his incredible revival. Against sides who finished in the top-six last season, Sean Dyche’s men have conceded 13 times in four matches so far.

With four attacking returns in his last six outings, James Maddison (£7.6m) is proving one of the more reliable options in the mid-price midfielder bracket this season. Over the last four Gameweeks, only two players have created more chances than him and he’s scored twice, registering the same number of shots on target as Danny Ings, Gabriel Jesus, Alli and Mané. Maddison’s next opponents Aston Villa have allowed more shots in the box than any other side this season and conceded the most set-pieces goals too, boosting Maddison’s chances of returns.

Christian Pulisic (£7.5m) has been rather unfortunate not to have registered attacking returns in any of his last three Premier League matches, having scored five in the three before them. Still, since Gameweek 12, the American has registered 13 shots in the box, the joint-third in the league and more than any of his colleagues. Everton come into Gameweek 16 having finally parted company with Marco Silva. While Duncan Ferguson might bring out a spirited performance from the Toffees, he will certainly have his work cut out. Everton have conceded a total of nine goals across their last three outings, including a 2-0 home defeat to strugglers Norwich City.

Forwards

Who are the best FPL captain candidates for Gameweek 15?
Vardy is very much an auto-include option right now

Do we even need to explain why Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) gets included in the Scout Picks now? The Leicester City forward continued his scoring run against Watford from the penalty spot and now has 11 goals in his last nine Premier League matches, netting in the last seven in a row. Gameweek 16 pits the division’s most in-form player against an Aston Villa side that has conceded more shots in the box than any other side this season.

Raúl Jiménez (£7.7m) may have blanked against West Ham but that was not for lack of trying. Over his last four matches, the Wolves forward has registered 18 shots in the box, four more than any other player, and sits second place for shots on target too. Jiménez has three attacking returns in that time so has been delivering on a relatively regular basis. Meanwhile, upcoming opponents Brighton are bottom of the league for shots conceded in the box over the last four Gameweeks.

Danny Ings (£6.2m) just cannot stop scoring right now, having found the net in each of his last four Premier League matches. The Southampton man looks to have been setting some sustainable numbers too, with only two players registering superior minutes per expected goal involvement (xGI) since Gameweek 12. Meanwhile, only Brighton have allowed more shots in the penalty box over the last four matches.

Substitutes

Rui Patrício (£5.2m) could be in for a second clean sheet in quick succession this weekend. Wolves are fourth-best for fewest big chances conceded over the last six Gameweeks and the Portuguese international has made a minimum of three saves in five of his last seven outings.

Kurt Zouma (£4.7m) could prove an effective route into Chelsea’s side this weekend. Only Aston Villa have conceded more goals from set-pieces than Everton, which could allow Zouma to demonstrate his threat from corners and free-kicks.

Sheffield United may have come unstuck against Newcastle but we think they can come back stronger at Norwich, whose defence is still giving up chances. John Lundstram (£5.1m) is therefore included as the second of our benched defenders.

John Fleck (£4.9m) could also benefit from Norwich’s poor defence in Gameweek 16 and has been posting some good numbers to back that up. Over the last four Gameweeks, he is top for key passes among Sheffield United players while only one colleague has managed more shots on target in that time.

The Captain

The Scout Picks has a captain for the 2019/20 campaign.

This skipper is chosen using the conclusions of the latest Captain Sensible article and a four-way vote between David, Neale, Paul and Geoff.

Because the use of Fantasy Football Scout data is used so heavily in this process, the captain we choose each Gameweek will be known only to those who have signed up to Membership for the 2019/20 season.

It will be revealed to the public only when the deadline for the Gameweek has passed.

Community Champion

Representing the community against the Scout Picks in Gameweek 16 is Boleyn Boy.

They have gone for a 3-4-3 of Martin; Doherty, Alderweireld, Lundstram; Son, Sterling, Salah (c), Mount; Jesus, Pukki, Maupay

The community member who beats our picks by the biggest margin over the campaign will win a £100 Amazon Voucher and a place in our Contributors and Moderators League for the following season.

Community Champion Camzy was defeated in Gameweek 15, the Scout Picks winning by a 54-50. score-line.

The current winning margin of 17 points recorded by irfansheikh in Gameweek 7 and AK in Gameweek 10 remains the score to beat.

      2. ZimZalabim
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        TAA went off early
        I think Robbo is most at risk of rotation and I think Mane starts but goes off early

            Maybe Tomori* We don't know if he'll continue to start.

              I think Christensen was giving Tomori a rest. I think he'll play till Rudiger back.

          terrible idea imo

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Get rid of Salah was terrible idea at some point

            1. Jeanz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              That’s true but Salah was/is getting fluid drained out of an ankle.

              KDB such good value in arguably the best attacking team in the league.

              1. Graham Zusi's Hair is …

                I don't know that he's such good value. he's good....

                  This

                • 1 Year
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Understandable that's why we are debating it. But if you could have Mane Alli Maddison Pulisic Vardy Rashford Abraham ... and Grealish/Zaha as backup ...

        4. Printing Mane
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Tempted

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          I dont know if it's "time" but dropping him would give me a midfield of Alli - Mane - Pulisic - Maddison or Zaha.

          i want that.

          1. andres
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years

            Bingo!

      4. Shark Team
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Ok Vardy will score once and will get 6-7 points but is it worth to risk and captain Dele in case he hauls once again?
        And finally you don't lose that much...

        Wanna bring Dele, can fit him in place of KDB, Maddison, Pulisic or switch to 352 but it would mean no Tammy.

        Thoughts?

      12. Midfield Minefield
        FFCommunity_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 16 days ago

        What do you think will be the next midfield template?

        I feel like I'm at a crossroads with my midfield. I have Sadio Mane, Kevin De Bruyne and James Maddison, who are going nowhere. I'm still rolling with Mason Mount, who redeemed himself with a goal last time out. I have Todd Cantwell as my fifth midfielder, who's a worthy fill-in when needed.

        Mason Mount is the position I'm looking to change this week: I can afford the straight swap to Christian Pulisic or a move to Dele Alli for a hit. I'm really torn with which move would be better long-term.

        In my opinion, the ideal midfield would contain the following:
        - Man City midfielder
        - Liverpool midfielder
        - Leicester midfielder
        - Chelsea midfielder
        - Spurs midfielder

        It's hard to achieve this, without going for a shift in formation to a 3-5-2, but with the likes of Abraham, Jimenez, Vardy, Ings and Rashford all performing too, it's very difficult to squeeze them in.

        So the question I'm asking is... if you were on a wildcard would you choose a 4 or 5 man midfield and who would be in it?

              Vardy Tammy. Looking at Rashford though at perhaps the expense of Pulisic or Maddison

                Is double Chelsea too much with Tammy fit and firing? Your team value must be immense!

                  It's easily doable with average team value?

                    I have a relatively average team value, but good sale value. No value tied up in Vardy, No Mane and jumped off Mount.

              happy with my top 7 at the moment but this is bound to change by next week. Vardy is enough Leicester coverage in attack imo.

              Mane Son KDB Pulisic
              Vardy Rashford Jimenez

                Nice lineup Jeanz - Double Leicester defence looking better value than Maddison at the moment!

                  Agree! I like Maddison but there’s too much points distribution in the Leicester midfield. Rather stick with Vardy and 1-2 Leicester defenders.

            Yes if 3-5-2 then those .
            Maybe throw Grealish in there too.

            Rashford looks good though and could stop 5 in midfield if Jimenez doesn’t tail off.

            I’m currently on a 352 with:
            Mane KDB Alli Maddison Pulisic
            Vardy Jiménez (Connolly)

            I suspect that if Pulisic doesn’t buck up his shooting form and get back into the goals then he’ll become a 4.5m mid and Connolly will return to Abraham.

            My fourth midfielder is Mount who I just transferred in for Pulisic (rotation worry) and my fifth is Djenepo who I got an assist off 2 GW's ago.

            Rest of the mid is Mane, KDB and Alli.

            Attack: Jimenez, Vardy and Rashford

            I don’t feel like the Leicester mid is essential with Vardy up top.

            Very happy with my mid of Mane, KDB, Alli, Pulisic.

            I plan on bringing Rashford in alongside Vardy and then that last spot is the one open to debate.

            Have Jiminez currently but a move to Abraham or Maddison could be on the cards

            I agree with the Liverpool mid and the Spurs mid, and to an extent the Chelsea mid because of the low price points.

            City mids im not so sure, they have so much talent there and as we saw, KDB/Sterling can come away with zero attacking involvement in four goals.

              I have a very similar team and am struggling with the Mousset Vs Lundstram decision, you think Lund will outscore Mousset?
              Part of me thinks the decision will be made for us by klopp anyway.
              I changed Pope to Hendo last week. Might pay off over the run of decent fixtures and can't see any other pressing concerns.

                It’s tough between Lundstrum,Soyuncu and Mousett.

                    I'm currently benching Lund. Can see Mousset scoring and I can't bench a leicester defender when they keep bagging clean sheets. I have pereira over soy and he's been doing so well for me.

              Scout Picks fail?

                It's a simple question. Not sure why I should go with the scout picks?

                  If you think Everton will still be useless at home, go for it.

                    Thanks, I think I'm getting too worried about prices.
                    I can't believe he's rising again after so many transfers out last week.

              Tammy is the better pick. Maybe not this week to make that move given the fixtures.

                Thanks, probably best saving & having 2 FTs.
                Hate the way he's risen so fast!

            Bench order ok? G2G?

            Hend
            TAA Lund Aurier
            Mane KDB(vc) Maddison Pulisic
            Vardy(C) Jiminez Tammy

            Button Dendoncker Rico Greenwood

            0 FT, 3.8 itb

            Anything worth a hit here, with the Chilwell doubts?

            Pope, button
            Robertson, Chilwell, Lundstram, Kelly, Janmaat
            Salah, KDB, Maddison, Mount, Dendoncker
            Jesus, Vardy, Mousset

            Leader has Maddison.
            Maddison to Alli for a differential, yes or no?

            Is Freddie going to have the balls to drop Lacazette and play Aubameyang through the centre, do you think? Or sell for Jesus (Man U, Arsenal)?

              maybe he could try starting Pepe first.

            Dilemmas on who to bench? Does this look correct?

              Think I'd play Lund over Kelly

              No.
              Bench Zaha before Jimmy.
