Recapping the best Newcastle United players ahead of FPL restart

Newcastle United’s players are assessed as we continue with our series of team-by-team refresher articles ahead of the Fantasy Premier League resumption in June.

Looking firstly at data from the six Gameweeks that took place immediately before the suspension of play in March, we will also venture further back in time where relevant to highlight any season-wide trends.

Steve Bruce’s side are not the most glamorous outfit and goals have been very hard to come by in 2019/20, although only five clubs have registered more clean sheets.

Most Fantasy managers who are in the market for a Newcastle player, then, will be gravitating towards the Magpies’ defensive assets.

With this piece borrowing heavily from the data available in our Members Area, only subscribers of Fantasy Football Scout can read on.

    Just started looking at my team after a long hiatus. After going thru the many comments, I lean towards BB GW30+ and WC thereafter. How does the team below look?

    Leno Hendo
    Stevens Baldock Saiss TAA Lascelles
    KDB Mahrez Grealish Mcginn Saka
    Auba Kun Jimenez

    1.5 ITB

    1. LC1
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Looks very good to me.

      Worthwhile upgrading Saka to someone like Mount maybe?

      1. tvz32
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Just short of 0.1 to do that. Saka over 2 games worth a punt i guess

        1. LC1
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          Yeah worth a punt. I have him in my team.

          Good luck!

          1. tvz32
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 17 days ago

            Good luck mate. Eager to kick start the season once more

    2. SH
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Good team. I am planning on a similar team.

      1. tvz32
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        What are the other players you are considering?

        1. SH
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          Leno Reina
          TAA Doherty 2xSHU Soy*
          KDB Mahrez Grealish Fleck Sarr*
          Aguero Auba Jimenez

          This is where I am at now. Thinking of getting another DGW player somehow

          1. tvz32
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 17 days ago

            Love the Doherty pick, I could stretch to him if i downgrade one of Stevens or Baldock to Lundstram. You reckon the Lord will start both games considering his good form in the warm up games?

    3. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Can you do Saiss to Doherty?

      1. tvz32
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        0.3 away from that move unfortunately

      2. tvz32
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        After some tinkering, I could stretch to him if i downgrade one of Stevens or Baldock to Lundstram. You reckon the Lord will start both games considering his good form in the warm up games?

    4. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      I like it. Same as mine except I have Doherty for Saiss and Target for Lascelles.

  2. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    FH combo:

    A) Mahrez and Mané
    B) Sterling and Pepe

  3. SH
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Who would be your other DGW player to go with them?

    KDB, Aguero, Mahrez
    Auba, Leno
    Fleck, 2 SHU D
    Reina Grealish

    1. LC1
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Depends entirely on budget.

      Arsenal - Pepe or Saka / Nketiah if little money.

      Aston Villa - McGinn or Reina?

      I'm only going with 1 Villa player.

      1. SH
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Can get McGinn in place of Sarr. Not sure I want to

        Leno Reina
        TAA Doherty 2xSHU Soy*
        KDB Mahrez Grealish Fleck Sarr*
        Aguero Auba Jimenez

  4. Jullepuu
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Do we think that Hanley starts the next match for Norwich?

    1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      If he does he'll get 1 point max so does it really matter

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Could be two 😉

  5. Salarrivederci
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Gtg BB? .6 ITB

    Henderson-Leno
    Baldock-Stevens-Bellerin-Aarons-Lewis
    Cantwell-McGinn-Grealish-Sterling-KDB
    Auba-Aguero-Samatta

  6. HollywoodXI
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    FH Team. Good to go? Not sure on Bellerin.

    Henderson
    Stevens Bellerin Targett
    KDB Sterling Pepe Grealish
    Aguero Auba McBurnie

  7. Romani
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Nketiah or Martinelli? Which one and why?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Nkeitah now seems more in favour

  8. Absolutely Flabulous
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    I’m captaining Mahrez, don’t even try and talk me out of it.

    Okay, talk me out of it, please.

    1. JammySprat
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      High upside, also considering this

      1. Absolutely Flabulous
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        OH HELL YEAH, that’s what I was looking for.

        Mahrez ©️

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      How many minutes does he get?

      1. JammySprat
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Probably 90

        1. JammySprat
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          My guess would be:
          Rodri 180
          KDB and Bilva 150
          Aguero, Sterling, Jesus and Mahrez 90
          Sane, Gundo, Dilva, Foden, Less than 45

          1. Eat my goal!
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 17 days ago

            5 subs

            Kun Sterling rodri Kdb d Silva
            All 130-160

            Then the rest fight over the scraps

            1. JammySprat
              • 2 Years
              8 months, 17 days ago

              Can't see Rodri sub or kun and Dilva playing both

              1. Eat my goal!
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                8 months, 17 days ago

                Surely pep will want to settle a squad, they haven’t played in a long time

                D Silva is one of the best players in the squad

                A lot of it depends on who has come back to training fit

                But I don’t think we’ll see the rotation like it was mid season

                1. Eat my goal!
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  8 months, 17 days ago

                  I’m probably over stating d silva tho tbf

                  More like 90

                2. JammySprat
                  • 2 Years
                  8 months, 17 days ago

                  Yeah but it's not just the he 30 bubble, Chelsea is a few days after so will want the big hitters for that instead of Burnley.

                  Aguero and Dilva not worth risking in that game.

                  1. Eat my goal!
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    8 months, 17 days ago

                    Good point

                    You’re making me question whether I bring in a second city player

      2. Absolutely Flabulous
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        I think he starts one and comes on in the other. Pep roulette just got even more intense.

        My prediction: 3 goals for Mahrez over the 2 games, and 1 assist 😉

        1. Absolutely Flabulous
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          Should add, for context, I’m 150 points off the leader in my mini-League, time to gamble!

  9. Zilla
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    TC Aguero

    yay or nay?

    1. Zilla
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Thinking if it's the only DGW then surely I'd rather TC than BB, right?

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Yeah TC if you can see a decent week to BB for your squad on the horizon

  10. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Who scores more in 30?

    A) Mane (eve)
    B) Pepe (mci, bha)

    1. Zilla
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      A

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      A

    Seeing more & more links with Premier League clubs & Nicolo Zaniolo

    This morning it’s Liverpool, I’m pretty sure Spurs & Utd were linked last week... (he’d be a great Pogba replacement)

    By complete fluke I happened to have a Serie A match on about 6-7 months ago (the one where he unfortunately got injured) and he looked a freakishly good central midfielder

    A real all rounder - gigantic unit, good dribbling, tackling, passing etc - the whole package - whoever ends up getting him will have a serious player on their hands - still only 20 too

    Hope he recovers fully from the cruciate injury

    1. Steve The Spud

      We already have moussa sissoko

  12. radawson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 17 days ago

    Thoughts on this? BB followed by WC 31/32

    Leno Henderson
    TAA Targett Egan Lascelles Saiss
    KDB Mahrez Pepe Grealish McGinn
    Auba Aguero McBurnie

    Comments appreciated!

  13. Eat my goal!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    So with BB in mind thinking the below, bearing in mind I have no WC

    McCarthy Hendo
    TAA Lascelles O'connell Doherty Targett
    Son KDB Saka Grealish Fernandes
    Rashford Kun Jimenez

    any thoughts?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Looks pretty well balanced. Any money left over?

            Kdb or kun, torn tbh

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              Same - going Agüero myself

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Very nice, i will WC to something like this too when i use my wc.

  14. Vazza
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Who is going to score more points during the double gameweek -

      1. Nketiah
      2. McGinn

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Think Nkeitah might edge it with a goal vs Brighton

      2. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Could see nektiah getting something, I watched Arsenal a lot before the break and he was getting into good positions to score

    • Louis Van Gaalstones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      How does this BB team look:

      Ederson, Henderson
      Doherty, Saiss, O'Connell, Targett, Mings
      Grealish, KDB, Pepe, Fleck, Mount
      Agüero, Auba, Jiminez

    • De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      So just to get this straight my unlimited transfers won't get cancelled if i was to use FH in GW30? Thank you all!

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        They would get cancelled, 31+ team will be same as the team you finished 38 with

      2. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

          Thanks guys. Much appreciated.

      Thoughts on teams/strategy:

      FH30 team:

      Henderson
      TAA Bellerin Lundstram
      KDB Sane* Grealish Mount
      Aguero C Vardy Jimenez

      Fodder Cantwell fodder fodder

      *Sane could be Mahrez if he looks a safer bet.

      Will revert back to my team gw31:

      McCarthy
      TAA Lundstram Boly
      Salah Mane Mount Cantwell
      Vardy Deeney Jimenez

      Ryan Moura Holgate Fernandez

      WC intact for future emergencies.

        Morning,

        Any reason you have stayed away from any arsenal attacking players?

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          Yes, reason is they are Arsenal attacking players. Auba only one i'd have but i think ManCity will score more goals so going triple-up.

    • Lev Yashin
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Howdo folks.
      First attempt to make any sense of this madness:

      Leno, Ederson
      TAA, Doherty, Saïss, Targett, Stevens
      KdB, Mount, Grealish, Fleck, Saka
      Kun, Auba, Jimenez

      Am I missing out on some NOR?
      Have a feeling they'll come out fighting for their lives.

      1. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Get Cantwell in over Saka

      2. Rondon9
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Anything ITB?

        Can you afford Cantwell over Saka?

      3. Lev Yashin
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah, can do Cantwell over Saka.

    • Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      How many wins do pool need?

      1. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Two

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          Two wins i mean

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          So thinking going without pool mids isn’t such a bad idea

    • Rondon9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Kun Raz Sterling Auba really makes my BB weak

      Who would you drop out of the 4 to make it more balanced?

      1. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Auba

        1. Rondon9
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          Cheers Pukki 🙂

      2. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Auba, or sterling to Mahrez to free up funds

        1. Rondon9
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 17 days ago

          Thanks, FC

          I'm leaning towards Auba out, keep Jimmy

      3. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Drop raz since you have sterling

        But seriously think he is the weakest unless pep plays sane

        The rejig of my BB resulting from Sterling to Mahrez allowed me to upgrade Cantwell to Mount and Lascelles to Doherty and saves me another 0.2 in TV. I think it's worth it.

      What's the chance of early team news for villa vs SHU do you reckon?

      Right now I'm on Alonso / Fleck but I'm a bit wary of Alonso being dropped. If we get early team news and Lund and El Ghazi start I may do a last minute switch. Thoughts?

        I'm waiting for news, 100% getting Lundstram if he starts

        Fingers crossed

      I do not have a WC anymore and have some doubts as well, please help me out heree

      A. Do I do unlimited transfers or FH
      B. Can I do unlimited transfers and create a new team but also use FH just for the DGW
      C. Just change the team and use BB

        I think with B...once you FH...the team changes back to pre transfer team

        Depends on how much value you will lose for this weeks Bb, that team is good going forward too.

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        B no contest

      2. Aubaaaaa
        • 4 Years

      Who do you think will be city’s CB pairing? I assume Laporte should be a sure starter? Then the other spot will be between Fernandinho, Stones and Otamendi?

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Exactly- no go area

      2. Lev Yashin
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        For me, it's Ederson or no one

      3. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Tough to say, there will be rotation for sure. Better to avoid, it's not like fixtures are awesome anyway

    • Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 17 days ago

      Would you be happy playing one of Cantwell/Saka/4.3 def/ 4.3 def for the next 3 game weeks if that allowed you to have 4 premium players?

      1. Lev Yashin
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah.

        Cantwell and NOR will be up for it.
        Saka might get some decent returns.

        1. Jullepuu
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 17 days ago

          Yeah that would make things easy for me team wise although I would have to bb Pope

        1. Jullepuu
          • 1 Year

          Yeah thinking about Lascelles and Smith/Ward or maybe Taylor if I decide to save my bb
