Scoutcast focus on form and fixtures of budget strikers

The Scoutcast is back for another episode tonight as we head closer to Gameweek 29.

Join us on our YouTube channel from 20:00 GMT to 21:00 GMT for the live broadcast but you can always check back at any time to watch it on catch-up.

Joe will be joined by Pro Pundits Az and Lateriser12 to discuss the biggest talking points in Fantasy Premier League right now.

After recapping on a Blank Gameweek 28 of contrasting fortunes, the team will compare the current crop of budget forwards.

Some have form, some have fixtures, while others have both – who are the most important ones right now?

Then we’ll be assessing which teams are most likely to prove a source of reliable investment in the final third of the campaign.

Some clubs will have it all to play for, while others could be soon on the beach in their flip-flops.

Then we’ll be discussing all the potential Blank and Double Gameweek permutations including live updates from the FA Cup matches set to impact on Blank Gameweek 31.

    Why so quiet around these parts?

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years

      Everyone is depressed due to lack of DGW announcement

        Actually this article isnt visible on top of front page

        Same issue with this article: https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2020/03/02/defensive-returns-continue-for-burnley-as-ritchie-plays-out-of-position/

      Everyone is on tenterhooks with excitement pending the Cup results so they're all on the loo .

    How come there wasn't a captaincy video today?

    Anyhow, hoping for a good one tonight. Lateriser strikes me as being a knowledgeable guy, I was very impressed by his advice last time round, convinced me to put the TC on Mane. Let's hope for some better luck this time eh

    This article has only just appeared on the front page! Did I miss the "DGW29 for Arsenal and City as expected" article??

    1. DeadStar
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 2 days ago

      😉

  5. Fantasy Gold
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 2 days ago

    Predictions tonight lads?

    2-1 Chelsea.

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 2 days ago

      1-1, Pool win at Anfield

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 2 days ago

        I can certainly rule that out.

        1. Coys96
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Oh didn't know went to ET

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

      With both of the keepers, it could be 4-4+

    3. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 2 days ago

      2-2

    4. mdm
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 2 days ago

      3:1 Pool

  6. Dele
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 2 days ago

    Wow so there’s a double GW then :p

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 2 days ago

      Not confirmed but highly likely

      1. Vlad Tepes
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 2 days ago

        so if it is confirmed City and Arsenal get a DGW?

        1. goblin140
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Nu bro

  7. Rainer
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 2 days ago

    Three strong away lineups tonight, hopefully they perform to cause untold, haunting, carnage and stun the FPL world.

  8. Ginkapo FPL
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 2 days ago

    Coronavirus is gonna wipe out gw32

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 2 days ago

      Might wipe out CL soon.

    2. Qaiss
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 2 days ago

      Well in Wuhan where it all started, the numbers are getting lower and lower and lower. I doubt Selhurst Park on a sunny day is going to be affected.

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

      Once we get to see BGW31, I wont mind too much.

    4. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 2 days ago

      Then it wipes out FA cup quarter finals too giving us lots of extra DGW's

    5. GREEN IS GOOD
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 2 days ago

      I think that rather than cancel, the games will go ahead, but behind closed doors

    6. FOO FIGHTER
        5 months, 2 days ago

        Humakind will forget to wipe their behinds with all the runny noses.

    7. Flynny
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 2 days ago

      Robertson likely to be rested v bournemouthas starting tonight??

      1. Qaiss
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 2 days ago

        No one knows till Saturday morning before deadline

      2. FOO FIGHTER
          5 months, 2 days ago

          FPLROCKSTAR.

          Think that is how his twitter name is spelled.

      3. Hotdogs for Tea
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 2 days ago

        strong Liverpool team after all - think they will win

      4. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 2 days ago

        Not pleased about it but surely with only 3 gws to go until 31 , selling traore doesn't make sense right

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          got rid of him a few days ago, no certainty he will even start in 31.

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 6 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Cheers . Will wait and see 🙂

            1. Hotdogs for Tea
              • 4 Years
              5 months, 2 days ago

              I should have waited but brought in Sarr - rather his points hopefully for the next few games

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

        Given I now have 8 non blankers for Gw31 I really hope all PL teams win. Otherwise I’ve wasted weeks building a team of dross

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          who are your eight ?

      6. Qaiss
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 2 days ago

        Do you think 8 players in 31 is enough to warrant not using FH?

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          probably yes

        2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Borderline

          1. Lindelol
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            why borderline?

            1. Syd.
              • 11 Years
              5 months, 2 days ago

              7 wouldn't be great
              9 would be ideal

              1. Lindelol
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                5 months, 2 days ago

                but 8 is a simple yes

                1. Syd.
                  • 11 Years
                  5 months, 2 days ago

                  Some will consider it to be borderline as it doesn't give you any space for unexpected benchings / injuries

        3. Revival
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Absolutely

        4. Syd.
          • 11 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Yes

        5. Jullepuu
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Depends on how many games there will be

        6. Free Hat
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 2 days ago

          If they are the most important players of their teams (likes of Jimmy, Doherty,etc), yes for me

        7. Rainer
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          If only 4 games, yes.

        8. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Depends what happens over the next few nights, if Pool lose tonight it's definitely not enough.

      7. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 2 days ago

        I thought that Matip would start alongside VVD but I guess not. Gomez still nailed?

        1. Revival
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Yes given how awful Lovern played Saturday

          1. Syd.
            • 11 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            He wasn't the worse

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

          Once fit, he's earned the spot.

      8. Hotdogs for Tea
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 2 days ago

        Louvren dropped then and Gomez back nailed in the team after his rest 🙂

        1. CloudSky
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Lovren resting for the big game on weekend. Gomez playing with 2nd team in FA.

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Gomez contributed to 10 clean sheets out of 12 games .... Louvren only came in because Gomez had a niggle, Liverpool were thrashed.

            End of 🙂

            1. CloudSky
              • 3 Years
              5 months, 2 days ago

              Lovren is world class defender.

        2. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Tonight's team doesn't mean much. No Allison, TAA and Salah, I don't think they have been dropped.

      9. Kaptenen
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 2 days ago

        Vardy dropping tonight?

        1. Lindelol
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Hopefully 😀

          1. FOO FIGHTER
              5 months, 2 days ago

              Ban

          2. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Some of us got him at 8.9 🙂

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

          I am worried about Mane being rested against Bournemouth.

          1. Rainer
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Makes sense.

          2. Syd.
            • 11 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Yip will want him fresh for the CL

          3. GREEN IS GOOD
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            hopefully has minutes managed tonight

          4. Donnie D
            • 10 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            He got his rest when he was injured few weeks back. He needs to get sharp again and Klopp knows that. Mo played every game all minutes when Mane was out. Klopp already said in the summer that Mo and Mane are in great shape and don’t need so much recovery time. He’ll play on Saturday (Mane owner btw) 🙂

            1. Easy Cheesy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              5 months, 2 days ago

              I think you are right. Mane isn’t back to his best so needs more minutes, not less. Non-owner

              1. Silecro
                • 2 Years
                5 months, 2 days ago

                After a long hard thought, I agree with you guys. (Owner)

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

          Exact funds for Auba..

          Fplstatistics have him at 78.6

          Fix have him rising tonight..

          Want to wait until Dgw was announced, but fear might be priced out

          1. Man Chest Hair United
            • 6 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            I’m in the same boat. Happy to wait another day

            1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
              • 8 Years
              5 months, 2 days ago

              This

        4. how now brown cow
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Hmm. Thought matip would see some action tonight and maybe get pulled off in 2nd half.

          1. DA Minnion
            • 8 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Might later on tonight.

          2. Hotdogs for Tea
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Boyfriend ditched you then? 😉

        5. Dybala10
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Even if this DGW doesn’t happen, would you still move Vardy to Auba?

          I’ve held so long to my detriment and the way Leicester are playing, I think I’ll take my chances on Barnes...

          1. Donnie D
            • 10 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Wait for press conference. You can decide after. I would go for Jimmy/Jota or DCL if Everton has a game in 31.gw. Auba has already confirmed blank in 31. Also Whm found some form in the last two games vs Pool and Sou

        6. Monkey Hanger
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Jurgen, 'likes the team'.

        7. George James
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          What to do here if DGW announced.

          Really want Auba and have only 2 playing defenders.

          1FT 0.4itb

          Pope • Button
          TAA • Soy • Lund* • Kelly* • Rico*
          Salah • Mane • Bruno • KDB • Cantwell
          Ings • DCL • Jimenez.

          1. Thescaff
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 2 days ago

            -8 Mane out then

          2. Donnie D
            • 10 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Lundstram or Kelly -> Boly/Saiss

        8. Man Chest Hair United
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Who would you ship for Aubz

          A vardy
          B Ings

          Have exact coin for b A would leave me with some decent bank

        9. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Oh great, Robbo has conceded 5 goals in two games and might be rested since I brought him in, I'm the best.

          1. Dthinger
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            rested?

            1. Would Ed Woodward
              • 1 Year
              5 months, 2 days ago

              Milner might play against Bournemouth.

        10. jason_ni
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Gilmour looks really young in that tunnel!

        11. Wild Rover
          • 9 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Come on Liverpool!

          1. jason_ni
            • 4 Years

          Any news on Enda Stevens? Injured last game and not in team squad today for SHU

          1. Donnie D
            • 10 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Manager said (yesterday?) that if he won’t make it for FA Cup then he’ll be ready for league game over the weekend

        13. Rainer
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 2 days ago

          Mane vs Alonso.

          1. Pipermaru
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Poor Sadio.

          2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 2 days ago

            Alonso to rough him up

            1. Rainer
              • 3 Years
              5 months, 2 days ago

              Hopefully Mane drives him mad.

              1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
                • 5 Years
                5 months, 2 days ago

                I see what you did there

            2. FOO FIGHTER

                Cat amongst the pigeon/s.

          3. Tcheco
            • 3 Years
