Scout Squad

The Scout Squad picks for FPL Gameweek 18

The Scout Squad panel have assembled for the final time in 2019 to submit their player longlists for the coming weekend.

This recurring feature will take a mini-hiatus over the next three Gameweeks, given the short turnaround between fixtures, although the Scout Picks will continue as normal over the festive period.

In this article, our four regulars – editorial staff Paul, David and Neale plus community manager Geoff – each proposes an 18-man squad of Fantasy assets for Gameweek 18 and explain their notable inclusions/omissions.

The 72 nominations listed below will then be narrowed down to a squad of 15 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83m) for the weekly Scout Picks selection ahead of the deadline at 11:30 GMT on Saturday.

There are requirements for at least one sub-£5.0m goalkeeper, at least one defender under £5.0m, at least one midfielder priced £6.0m or below and at least one forward priced at £7.0m or lower.

Each panellist is restricted to no more than three players from the same team, as is the case in FPL.

We will again be adding a captaincy to the Scout Picks, with details of that revealed on Friday.

DAVID SAID…

Despite conceding against Brighton on Monday night, the Crystal Palace defence still looks great for Gameweek 18.

They face a Newcastle side currently marred by injuries, the absence of Jonjo Shelvey, Miguel Almirón and Allan Saint-Maximin robbing them of any creativity or pace in their recent defeat to Burnley.

Therefore, both Vicente Guaita and Martin Kelly get into my Scout Squad submission.

2019 has finally peaked in the last month of the year as I’m selecting John Lundstram as the top defender for Gameweek 18.

I fancy Sheffield United for the clean sheet at Brighton while Lundstram continues to show how dangerous he is when operating as a very advanced attacking midfielder in Chris Wilder’s 3-5-2 formation.

Only Aston Villa have conceded more shots inside the box over their last four matches as Brighton so I’m sure there will be plenty of opportunities for Lundstram to get involved in further goals.

Meanwhile, Matt Doherty comes in as something of a nostalgia pick, although his chances this week look good. Over the last four matches, only one defender has registered more touches in the penalty area as Doherty ahead of a meeting with Norwich City.

I’ve gone with a bold Spurs double-up in midfield as Chelsea prepare for a trip to north London.

The Blues have looked shaky at the back since Fikayo Tomori picked up an injury and they are, of course, still waiting for their first away clean sheet of the season.

Meanwhile, Son Heung-min and Dele Alli have averaged 7.8 and 8.0 points per game since Jose Mourinho took over.

Kevin De Bruyne absolutely smashed it in Gameweek 17 and I expect him to provide his owners with at least one attacking return against Leicester.

The Foxes may have the best defensive record in the Premier League this season but De Bruyne is showing excellent underlying numbers again. In the last four matches, he is joint-second in the division for big chances created while no player has had more shots on target than him.

I think both Jack Grealish and James Ward-Prowse could be involved as Aston Villa host Southampton.

As already mentioned, Dean Smith’s men have conceded the most shots in the box over the last four matches, which bodes well for Southampton and Danny Ings owners.

Marcus Rashford may have blanked in Gameweek 17 but a meeting with Watford could be the opportunity he needs to get back in the goals.

I’m still a big fan of Jamie Vardy despite his failure to score against Norwich. There has been a slight dip in his numbers but the Leicester forward is still in the top three for shots in the box, big chances and shots on target over the last four matches.

NEALE SAID…

Having championed their cases ahead of the trip to Arsenal, I’ve overlooked Manchester City assets for the visit of Leicester City this weekend.

City are more than capable of making a mockery of my omissions but they won’t face Arsenal every week, and Brendan Rodgers’ in-form side will likely provide a stiffer test at the Etihad.

The corresponding fixture at the back-end of 2018/19 was settled only by a Vincent Kompany thunderbolt, while no side has kept as many clean sheets or conceded fewer goals than the Foxes in this campaign.

Jamie Vardy makes the cut for my squad, though – I’ve visions of him running in behind Nicolas Otamendi as Leicester, with the likes of James Maddison and Youri Tielemans providing the slide-rule passes, exploit the sort of gaps that Manchester United found all too easy to come by a fortnight ago.

Speaking of United, the Red Devils are without a clean sheet in 12 games.

A defender starved of shut-outs and who doesn’t carry much attacking potential is an odd candidate to nominate, then, but Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been evoking memories of last season with his recent scores on the Bonus Points System and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are facing a Watford side who have scored just one goal (a penalty) in their last five home fixtures.

The Hornets’ impressive – but ultimately profligate – display at Anfield last weekend makes me slightly less confident of a return for Wan-Bissaka but I have fewer concerns about Marcus Rashford, who poses such a threat even when United are at their mediocre worst.

In a Gameweek where there don’t look to be too many clean sheets around, we can be grateful for Newcastle United v Crystal Palace.

Those two teams are in the bottom three for everything from goals scored to shots in the box this season, so the form of Vicente Guaita and the attacking threat of Jetro Willems make them routine picks for a potential stalemate.

If there is to be someone who breaks the deadlock, it seems likely to be Wilfried Zaha: the Ivory Coast international is hardly setting the world alight with his underlying stats of late but Newcastle have allowed more chances and crosses from their right flank than any other club this season and Zaha could potentially exploit that weakness on Tyneside.

My Wolves triple-up sees Raul Jimenez and Matt Doherty (who has had more touches in the opposition box than any other FPL defender over the last six Gameweeks) joined by Joao Moutinho.

Moutinho’s monopoly at dead-ball situations could come in useful against a Norwich side that has allowed more chances from set plays than any other Premier League side in 2019/20, with Doherty and Jimenez able to exploit the Canaries’ weakness in the air.

Everton and Arsenal may have new managers lined up by the time the two teams meet at Goodison Park on Saturday but it could still be Duncan Ferguson and Freddie Ljungberg taking the reins in the early kick-off, which prompts my selection of Everton front two Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison.

The ‘out of position’ Brazilian has four goals in the last six Gameweeks, while the physical Calvert-Lewin looks a player reborn under his interim manager.

And while Everton have shown plenty of bottle under Ferguson, Arsenal have looked so submissive under Ljungberg. Regime changes at both clubs, however, could change the landscape by the time Gameweek 18 arrives.

PAUL SAID…

As four of the top five go head-to-head, and Liverpool are without a fixture, budget defenders could be the way to go in Gameweek 18.

Such a schedule promotes the likes of Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa as cut-price contenders at the back this weekend.

Villa’s Frederic Guilbert is a case in point at home to Southampton.

Sitting in a mere 0.8% of squads, he has been one of the most consistent FPL defenders when playing at home this season.

The right-back has produced attacking or defensive points in all six of his starts at Villa Park. Indeed, 34 of his 40 points for the campaign have come in those matches.

Leandro Trossard is another player who has excelled in front of his own supporters.

When selected, the winger has been involved in 71% of Brighton’s home strikes.

Both the Belgian’s goals for the season, and three of his four assists, have come at the Amex Stadium.

Trossard has started just four home matches, featuring off the bench twice, and has delivered 31 of his 41 points in those fixtures.

Yet he sits in only 0.3% of squads for the Seagulls’ clash with Sheffield United.

Duncan Ferguson’s spell as Everton head coach has lifted the attacking potential of Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The Toffees’ forward scored twice in their previous home clash against Chelsea, and look set to punish Arsenal’s porous defence at Goodison this Saturday lunchtime.

Over the last two Gameweeks with Ferguson at the helm, Calvert-Lewin’s nine shots ranked third among all players in FPL, while his five shots on target were bettered only by the seven of Mohamed Salah.

Despite his cost of £5.7m in FPL, just 1.2% of managers currently hold the 22-year-old.

GEOFF SAID…

In a difficult Gameweek to call, I looked to David de Gea to start a run of clean sheets, against Watford’s poor finishing. Aaron Ramsdale is my first choice goalkeeper at home to Burnley, while I’m backing Martin Dubravka to keep out Crystal Palace for another Newcastle win.

The defensive options look weaker than many weeks, allowing a range of often overlooked options to get a look. Matt Doherty, Fabian Schär and Matt Targett are all options, though it’s John Lundstram and his double-digit haul potential who takes top spot.

The Liverpool blank gives me the opportunity to double up on City players, with both Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling making my squad.

Son Heung-min plays a Chelsea defence improved, but not fixed, by the return of Antonio Rudiger.

I expect Anthony Martial to start for Manchester United this weekend but the risk from Mason Greenwood puts Jack Grealish above him in my picks.

Up front, Marcus Rashford’s form and fixture at Watford make him a clear captaincy front-runner.

With two straight starts and against a suspect Arsenal defence, I look to re-energised Dominic Calvert-Lewin, while Raul Jimenez has attacking returns in eight of the last ten Gameweeks and plays at Norwich City.

Danny Ings and Teemu Pukki round out my Gameweek 18 picks.

THE COMMUNITY CHAMPION

Each week, one of the Fantasy Football Scout community takes on the Scout Picks by pitting their chosen XI against ours.

    When do the yellow cards restart?

    Before gameweek 20 or after?

    So for example, if a player gets 5 yellows during gameweek 20, does he get a suspension?

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Reset after GW19 so a GW20 YC is fine (though obviously will go towards the next threshold, which is a 2 game ban for 10 YC)

      1. ONGO GABLOGIAN

        thanks dude.

  2. Pep Pig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    RP ...I have a hunch that GW18 could see a defender being the highest scoring player come Sunday Evening. For anyone interested, **6 of the 17 weeks so far have produced just that.

    GW1 Sterling 20pts
    GW2 Pukki 17pts
    GW3 Salah 15pts
    GW4 Vardy 16pts
    GW5 Son 16pts
    GW6 B Silva 19pts
    **GW7 Doherty 15pts
    GW8 Traore 16pts
    **GW9 Alonso 14pts
    GW10 Perez 20pts
    **GW11 Lundstram 21pts
    **GW12 Tarkowski 12pts
    **GW13 Tarkowski 17pts
    **GW14 VVD 17pts
    GW15 Mane 15pts
    GW16 Kane 16pts
    GW17 KDB 19pts

    Many of us have or are considering moving on a Liverpool defender this week. I had several possible replacements for Robbo (I also own TAA and Salah) I narrowed it down to Dunk and Tarkowski.

    Dunk 4.7m and 13% ownership
    Tarkowski 5.1m and 4.2% ownership

    Looking at the stats it was clear that I actually wanted Tarkowski and he could well make the above list for a 3rd time. Dunk missed GW13 through suspension so Tarks has racked up an extra 90 mins this season not missing a minute's play as yet.
    Both have racked up 2 assists each and Dunk has scored 2 goals to Tarks 1. (Not quite sure how many more direct free kicks Dunk will score in his career) In fact, Tarks has the highest totals of the 2 when it comes to clean sheets, goal attempts, minutes per chance and penalty box touches.

    Burnley have a horrible run of fixures from GW20-25, but for me, this punt is possibly only for 1-2 GWs.
    I think I may just bite the bullet with this one. Any opinions more than welcome

    1. NABIL - Gettin' Siggy …

      Tark good shout

      Wish i have room for him in my team

    2. Jealous Viper
      • 1 Year

      Think Doherty would be my pick for highest scoring def this week. Mixed bag of fixtures after though.

      1. Pep Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Yes he was one of my options. Ended up going cheaper as I am also moving Salah on and wanted an easy route to get him back in. Every chance though

    3. pingissimus

      Guilbert time

      1. Pep Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Absolutely mate. It was probably harsh how I didn't include him. I was just leaning towards a centre half for set piece duty this weekend. Fully appreciate his home form is excellent

      2. iL PiStOlErO
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Had him from the start, hope it will finally pay off. Interesting player to watch.

          1. Pep Pig
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Thing is, I also own Pope. Though with Clean Sheets few and far between for teams in general, it may not be a bad double up this week/maybe next

        • ONGO GABLOGIAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          any risk for rotation with elmohamady? has happened before.

          1. Pep Pig
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            I'm not sure mate. I just see the old school centre half defenders being much less likely for rotation than up and down wing backs

      3. MoManeTaa
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Baldock assist CS n bonus

        1. Pep Pig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Indeed mate. Lundstram is enough for me but I'm definitely considering the double up from GW25

    4. Jealous Viper
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Why no Kane love? Next 3 after Chelsea look great and he's nailed as nailed can be.

      1. Jarvish Scott Talent
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Kane hated on here

          Not by me, I have him and am captaining next few.. Nice differential and could explode..nailed, on pens and nice games..no brainer to me..

      2. Holmes (specialist in failu…

        Too expensive

        1. iL PiStOlErO
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Atm yes. Son and Alli much better value even with blanks.

        2. Gunner Boy
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          He is my current captain against Chelsea.

          1. Jealous Viper
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Pondering a Vardy to Kane swap for the next 3 or 4. Don't see why Kane can't outscore him.

        3. Avo24
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          I am gonna captain him for the next three. U can find important information here but dont too rely on people opinion here. There are people act like they are the smartest person but they dont even reach 100k overall. Just follow your insting

        4. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          stats dropped off, other cheaper but equivalent point scoring options up front, plus Alli & Son are likely to match his points

      3. ONGO GABLOGIAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Very simple question, who is the best Mount replacement?

        FYI, I have Son and don't have any United or Everton players.

        A) Dele
        B) Martial
        C) Richarlison
        D) Grealish

        Leaning towards B

        1. NABIL - Gettin' Siggy …
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          A or D

          1. JoeSoap
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            A/D as B & C have never worked for me

        2. Bogisa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 5 days ago

          For me B is the last option. ACDB

        3. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          For the long haul, Maddison - expect points against a leaky and slow City defence on the counter attack and points against a tired and rotation risked Liverpool ... after that it is all gravy

      4. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Can’t remember when I saw the first page of FPLstats so dull. Just 2 players in the 90s including a 3.9 and going as low as 59. All the business done early this week?

        1. NABIL - Gettin' Siggy …
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          I guess so

        2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          No standout options...

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Guess so - poor time to be WCing in any event and I can’t see next week being much different unless people rush back into Liverpool.

            Thanks. Not sure about losing Maddy though.

              If its for Grealish then I think its worth the gamble

                • 6 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                His fixtures are great and Maddy has two tough fixtures next. Food for thought.

        2. Quackadoodz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Depending on how much value is tied up in Mané, I’ll go for A (if you bought him at anywhere from 11.9 and up)

          1. JoeSoap
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Thanks. Bought at 11.9. A looks the more positive move.

            i'm strongly considering bringing him in. He may get rested for a game over the xmas break but they don't have the squad to drop him IMO.

                Greenwood, Rashford and Martial played last night, so maybe he will accommodate them all?

        2. tyron

          2 seems the best bet.. though if u decide to keep puli after all u will have to keep him vs southampton surely

              Cantwell and Alli, just. I think Alli and KDB will both get attacking returns.

                It’s now possible to get a team with Alli Son KdB Salah Mane & Vardy, a decent starting defence with Greenwood and Martinelli on the bench 🙂

                Rashford Jesus Vardy

                1 FT

                As I only have the one player missing, I seem to be in better shape than my rivals (and my Cup Opponent) which makes me want to sit on my hands and do nothing.

                Yes, Jesus might be a problem is Aguero is now fit, but I would rather get rid off when have 2 FT's

                Apart from that, I can not see another transfer that improves my team this week, and the weeks going forward.

                Any advice is much welcomed.

                Do you think I can go through the GW without using Free transfer (I will bench two Liv players, and even have Cantwell as playing sub). Or I need to do some transfer?

                  Rico might not play and Soy unlikley to get many, but if you want to keep Liv then it is what it is.

                Completely on the fence and value advice. Current team is:

                Lundy, Aurier, Rico (Soy, TAA)
                Son, KDB, Mount, Cantwell (Mané)
                Moose, Vardy, Abraham
                1 ft, 2.2 ITB

                Contemplating:

                1) Mane -> Sterling
                2) Mount -> Jack or Martial
                3) Both 1 and 2 (for a -4)
                4) TAA, Moose -> Otamendi and Rashford (-4).

                Leaning toward 4 but can’t decide. Rash probably gets the armband this week if I do 4. Otherwise Son.
