Merry Christmas from Fantasy Football Scout

Christmas Day has finally arrived, providing many of us with a chance to take a much-needed break from Fantasy Premier League, as hard as that is.

While you’re doing your best to ignore FPL, everyone here at Fantasy Football Scout would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

While you’ll probably be digesting roast dinner rather than FPL content on this special day, I am sure many of you will be considering what to do with Son Heung-min after his Gameweek 18 red card.

Don’t forget, if you’re struggling to balance family life and FPL, former world champion Simon March has provided us with some much-needed tips. READ THEM HERE.

Thankfully, we had enough time to produce plenty of articles ahead of the Boxing Day fixtures so make sure you head over to our Gameweek 19 guide in the top menu for everything you need for tomorrow.

Until then, I would like to thank our many readers, listeners and viewers for another year of fantastic support for Fantasy Football Scout.

After the transitional season of 2018/19, with myself, Neale and Geoff coming onto the team, the 2019/20 campaign has been one of continued growth for the site.

Further increases in viewing figures and membership sign-ups have helped us invest back in more new signings including a team of talented ProPundits, video and community manager Andy Mears, as well as expanded involvement for FPL Family pair Sam and Lee Bonfield.

A great big thanks also goes to our team of mods for the thankless job they do for us every day.

That just leaves me to make another rare request for you to tear yourself away from the site for this one day of the year and spend some time with your family and friends.

Captain Sensible and the Scout Picks articles went up yesterday so there won’t be too much more to have a look at today.

We’ll be hearing from Pro Pundit Az Phillips a little bit later today but apart from that, it’s going to be a quiet one until the Boxing Day matches.

Once again, everyone here at Fantasy Football Scout, wishes you a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and a Christmas Tree of green arrows between now and the end of the season.

        I’m tempted. Also have Tammy. Would probably choose Kane if I owned him.

          Nah. Just save it and do it for free next gw.
          Though I’d rather downgrade Targett or aurier instead of Jimi.

            C) Vardy

            2FTs, 0.6itb
            1) Pope > Guaita & roll
            2) Rico > Kelly & roll

            Open to other ideas, of course. Thought maybe Salah to join Mane in my squad sounds nice, but means dropping Trent, Alli and/or Jim. Not sure that's worth it.

            I’m going Vardy(c), he's registered points 10 games in a row surprised not many people are captaining, Liverpool’s defence has not not been great, Watford created a lot of good chances against them last game but just couldn’t convert, Vardy would have put away atleast 2 of those chances if they fell to him

            Which option for the next few fixtures??

            A) Grealish + Kane (Rico, Greenwood)
            B) Rashford + Abraham (Kiko, Cantwell)

              Hello All,

              Help needed, My team is going stale and for the last 5 weeks i've been average and scraping through (except this week De Bruyne Captain), I need to push now for the top 100k (currently 350k) and push for top of all my leagues (currently 2nd, 2nd, 4th)

              What to do with my team, as you will see value is not a problem except that i'm scared of taking out certain players as i have so much value in them and may not be able to get them back in

              Gazzaniga / Ryan

              Van Dijk / Rico / Kelly / Sidibe / Lundstram

              De Bruyne / Traore / Ali / Mane / Grealish

              Rashford / Vardy / Abraham

              0.6M in the bank and as mentioned before I have alot of value in the likes of Abraham / Mane / Vardy / Lundstram so feel like i'm stuck in a rut.

              Have my new wildcard do i hold out or is there any quick transfers i can make ... I am aware my team on paper is amazing but they don't all fire at once unfortunately!!
