Scoutcast Episode 323 – Reacting to the Double and Blank Gameweeks

This week is pivotal for Fantasy managers as they look to navigate their way through a tricky set of fixtures as the season nears its conclusion.

The midweek announcement of a Double Gameweek 29 for Manchester City and Arsenal is among the key developments that our Scoutcast trio of Joe, Pranil (Lateriser12) and Az discuss in this busy episode of the Scoutcast.

They are also keeping a close eye on how Blank Gameweek 31 is shaping up, with this latest episode broadcast on Tuesday during Liverpool’s defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup .

The deployment of chips will clearly be crucial in the Gameweeks ahead, so our trio look to cover as many permutations as they can.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of other topics to consider, including the ‘form versus fixtures’ debate that Southampton and Everton’s strikers are creating.

Teams and players who are highly motivated also come under scrutiny, with relegation and European places still up for grabs. In contrast, those already dreaming of their holidays are also debated in their chat.

The ‘Rough with the Smooth’ round-up of your Gameweek 28 scores focuses on how Leicester’s wavering form has been a hindrance for some and a blessing to others.

Az takes his turn to pick a differential, with a former favourite firmly in his sights.

Clean sheets get an airing and the Scoutcast crew round up proceedings with a look at their transfer and captaincy plans for Gameweek 29.

    So let me get this right, if Leicester win today they will also have a blank in GW31 and same goes to the winner of spurs v Norwich? As well as the team they were scheduled to play in GW31?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      Yes.

    2. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      Correct

    3. Skonto Rigga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      • 2 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      Yep!

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      They also get a DGW of course!

      1. The King
        • 6 Years
        29 days, 10 hours ago

        Might save me FH for later on then(maybe gw34) given that my main ML rival has used his already so neither of us will have too many playing in bgw31

  2. FOMFF
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 10 hours ago

    No WC left, would you FH this week or 31?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      Depends on your team. Ideally neither.

      1. STONEROSES
        • 6 Years
        29 days, 10 hours ago

        When would be the optimum time to FH do you reckon?

        1. FantasyHero
          • 3 Years
          29 days, 10 hours ago

          There is no "right time". It all depends on your team.

    2. MOTHRA
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      Not this week.

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      GW37

  3. Tony Martial
    • 1 Year
    29 days, 10 hours ago

    Is Kdb essential for the DGW?

    Only have (A)uba @ the moment!

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      His EO will be well over 100% so I would say yes

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 10 hours ago

        *maybe not well over but certainly above

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          29 days, 9 hours ago

          He will be main captain picks probably almost 150 eo

      2. Brooksy86
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 9 hours ago

        Worth a -4 in instead of Mane? You're my main man.

    2. MOTHRA
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      I wouldn’t not have him.

    3. nico05
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      Definitely essential

  4. SHOWSTOPPERRR

    Ings pp 6.1 sp 6.6 cp 7.2 can I afford a drop?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes you can.

      1. SHOWSTOPPERRR

    Only KDB from City&Arsenal's DGW.

    GTG or going for some Arsenal asset?

    1 ft 0.0 itb

    Ryan
    TAA, Soy, Stephens
    Salah, Mane, KDB, Barnes
    Ings, Jimenez, Vardy

    a) Save transfer
    b) Ryan ---> Pope
    c) going for Arsenal's player.

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      Wait on Leicester

      If they win I suppose you FH31. If they lose then you have a team. I’d personally use the FT on a 31 player. Don’t see an extra Arsenal player this week is worth it - bar Auba.

  6. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    29 days, 10 hours ago

    DGW Fever is in overdrive but Auba has been given just 1 extra game - the champions away...

    Is it worth the chaos?

    1. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      Just going with KDB myself. If we get the pool lineup linked and Manè is missing I’d be tempted by Pépé but I don’t plan on using FH in gw31 so I’d only want him back

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 9 hours ago

        Thinking similar, OT.

    2. potatoace'scott talent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      Yep,
      And there are few Mcy players guaranteed both games.

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 9 hours ago

        Not even considering other City, just Kev.

    3. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
        29 days, 10 hours ago

        I was thinking the same. Is it worth it? Arsenal has played well recently but they have this season history of very poor performances as well

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          29 days, 9 hours ago

          Arsenal can't be trusted!

      • Holmes
        • 6 Years
        29 days, 10 hours ago

        Would have probably avoided him if I didn't had him already.

        Brighton won't be that easy, followed by a blank, then NOR, wol. Long term prospect not looking good.

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          29 days, 10 hours ago

          I'm not sure of using TC on him either

          1. Rainer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            29 days, 9 hours ago

            Well placed already having him, its a headache now.

            At least you didn't TC Mane 😀

        29 days, 10 hours ago

        The GW30 fixture also helps tbh. I'll probably be going without (unless I get some early news that Firmino isn't starting at the weekend). Trying not to deviate too much from my strategy and get involved in all the hype.

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          29 days, 9 hours ago

          Likewise, not using FH in 31 has got a lot trickier now with the DGW.

        2. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 9 hours ago

          I saw a couple of members yesterday asking where liverpool early team news was available, and noticed they didn't get any replies. As this is a sharing forum, would anyone like to tell me (an fpl player for 13 seasons and a member here for half a dozen) where I can catch this early team news. I have only once seen early team news when Anfield Express was active.
          Any help please? It would be appreciated, especially this gw.

              Thanks Holmes. Everyone else seems to have gone underground on this subject.

      • STONEROSES
        • 6 Years
        29 days, 10 hours ago

        It’s a fair point. But I reckon W Ham at home is enough justification to bring him in & it’s not crazy to think he can notch against city’s inconsistent baackline.

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          29 days, 9 hours ago

          West Ham should let us know which version of them will turn up 🙂

      • Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 10 hours ago

        the WC is your friend - just about the only time you can get the maximum number of DGW players and 11 players in the blank GW31 without taking any hits ... probably an extra 8 players over the two game weeks compared to the masses, most of whom will be the the thick end of a -12 over the two games 😉

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 9 hours ago

          Everytime I suggest this strategy it gets shot down. Is it just because people are scared to play their WC? It makes so much sense to me. You're almost guaranteed to gain a bunch of points just by avoiding hits this week and in 31, never mind the fact that you'll have more/better players in those weeks.

          1. Rainer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            29 days, 9 hours ago

            I think HFT is right and it looks a very good strategy once you plan it out well - I just want more info regarding the future DGWs, wouldn't be shooting down a WC29.

          2. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            29 days, 9 hours ago

            when i first saw it mentioned in here I though what a silly idea, but when I ran the numbers and a few goes at picking a squad it really does work quite well.

            I only have Ederson and Guendouzi 🙁 for the DGW and just Salah, Firmino, Gomez, Sarr and Pope for the blank at the moment

            I can get 9 extra players (exclude Guendouzi) over the two game weeks if I use my WC - it really is a no brainer for me, even more so if Spurs and Leicester go through (4 players blanking for me)

            Easy when you are rolling with 2FTs every week like a pro

      • how now brown cow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        29 days, 9 hours ago

        Not sure. Just kdb for me at the minute. Have an ft but anyone half decent needs a hit.

        Leicester is the key. Can vardy be trusted?

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          29 days, 9 hours ago

          Auba would be a hit for me too, Cow.

          Leicester are very annoying atm, Vardy in particular - maybe another defeat tonight gives you the answer.

      • I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Would you be surprised if he's the highest scoring player this week? I wouldn't, and plenty will captain him. Big risk to go without imo.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                Massively popular Swedish pop band from the 70s.

                            I've heard couple of tones but never heard of the band.
                            Maybe I'd give it a go ...

                              Sure thing! I presumed you may have known the songs and not the band...so, you can say now, that in fact you DID know who ABBA was!

                              You have to know Abba! Not as famous as Beatles but surely closing it. He would have known if he was from one of metro cities of India as they more culturally mixed...like Bombay

                            I think they also recently signed a $1b contract to make a new album, and do a 20 date world tour.

                            We’re dangerous off topic, but this has surely been the longest time anyone has not mentioned Auba....although we’re very close!

                              They did indeed...that was huge news. Very excited to hear what they come up with. Some seriously talented songwriters and musicians.

                              Guess then it was about money somehow. Anderssen must have convinced the others 😉 Hope they make a good one

                    Famous among young generation as well?

                    I'm not a music guy to be honest, knowledge is pretty low. Linkin Park and Green Day are the only band I have listened to 😀

                      Yes, theyve stayed oddly relevant for not releasing any new music in many decades. Theyre likely your parents favorite band! They've sold millions upon millions of albums...super popular, esp in Europe, Australia and N. America

                      29 days, 9 hours ago

                      I’d say they are as famous as The Beatles, or Elvis Presley. Don’t need to be into music, or around in the 50s/60s to know who they are/were.

                        Maybe Pop is not some people thing. Example I barely fan of metal and not ever heard Black Sabbath..nor am I interested

                          Yeah I genuinely thought they were well known enough to transcend just being a pop band.

                          I guess India missed out on Dancing Queen.

          Cantwell to Saka for a hit?

          Scratch that!

          Bruno+Cantwell->Mahrez+Saka -4?

            Have Kdb and Auba but I think that’s not enough doubles.

                      Saka is a good shout.

                Couple of quick questions:

                A. Do you think Jota outscores DCL in the next three by at least 4 points?

                B. Points prediction for KDB & Auba this week?

                  1) There is a small chance due to fixtures

                  2) 19 and 4

                Would you play your WC now, if it allows you to get 11 players out for GW31?

                If I won't play, then probably just 7 out for free. Maybe hit or two to get 8-9 out.

                1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
                    29 days, 9 hours ago

                    No. You get more beneficts with WC later on DGWs

                    How's your team atm ?
                    If you like it then don't WC this GW.

                    1. Strchld

                      29 days, 9 hours ago

                      Its okay, but dont have any Ars player and only KdB from City.
                      Have only 3x Pool and Jimenez. 3 free transfers before gw31, so plan is to get 7 players out.

                        Play WC this GW then.
                        Look @ above posts.

                    If you can only get 7 for GW31, yes I’d definitely WC or FH.

                      7 for free yes, because have right now only 3x pool and Jimenez from those teams whos having a game.

                  For people with FH, BB and WC left (who are not planning on using FH in 31), what is your plan on chip deployment?

                    Leicester to get knocked out tonight.

                    Everyone rushes to get back the Leicester players they've just sold after buying for a hit last week.

                    Going to happen.

                      Bet on it then, you’ll make a lot of money.

                      Extremely unlikely to happen.

                        11/2 isn't great odds

                          You said “going to happen”. If you are that sure (you must be assigning it a +70% chance with a conservative estimate) 5.50 is very good odds for that.

                      Leicester are so poor.. their next 3 fixtures are AVL, WAT and BHA.
                      I bet all those teams are eyeing up their fixtures thinking they can easily win.

                    Vardy + Ings > Auba + Jota (-4)?

                      Why do you think Auba will outscore Vardy? Not getting anything from the city game.

                    I can literally only see 1 move i can make to the below team with 1FT and 0.2m. Open to other suggestions

                    Ryan
                    Taa Robbo Aurier -- Boly Rico
                    Salah Martial Kdb Perez -- Stephens
                    Vardy Jimmy Ings

                    A: Vardy + Martial >> Auba + Sarr (-4). If lei lose today, then might have to keep vardy for bgw31
                    B: Any other option?

                      A is my option too if I get auba.

                      Unsure.

                    Anyone else thinking Auba TC this week? Will use my other chips in 31 and 34 so there won't be any other DGWs right?

                      Ridiculous TC for me.
                      Inconsistent team and one of the games is City where they will see 30% of the ball.

                        But is in great form and could run riot at home v West Ham. City's D is pants again too now with Laporte out

                        A DGW in 37

                          Ah my mistake will use FH in 37 not 31

                        37 will be double as well.

                        If you have plans for 34 and 37, then go for Aubameyang TC. Otherwise you will probably get better set of fixtures. (Auba might get sou plus LEI/avl)

                        I'm very tempted to see if the grass is greener on the other side with Hub.

                        My current strikers are Firmino, Ings and Vardy... Planning to sell Firmino and Vardy for Auba n one Wolves striker..... Who is the better buy? Jota or Jimenez??? Or rather.... Is Jimenez worth the extra £1.7??

                          Go Jota as differential.

                            Depends also on gw31 strategy and today's result imo.
