Win a year’s membership by joining our FPL mini-league and raise money for the NHS

We have launched a new Fantasy Premier League classic mini-league to mark the resumption of the 2019/20 season, with scoring starting from Gameweek 30+.

Whether you’re currently ranked first in the world or closer to the seven-million mark, everyone is in with a chance of winning as all entrants start from zero.

Head to the FPL site via this link and use the code ‘i3lxye’ to sign up (full details are towards the bottom of this piece).

There’s not only pride at stake in this mini-league but the carrot of free annual memberships to the managers who finish in the top five places.

Don’t worry if you’re already subscribed for 2020/21 – we’ll refund your payment if your finish qualifies you for this prize.

Our new end-of-season mini-league is called the ‘The FFScout Charity Shield‘ and we’re also using this opportunity to try and raise money for the NHS.

We usually offer Amazon vouchers to those finishing in the podium places of our Fantasy Football Scout and Fantasy Football Scout Members leagues, and that remains the case in this stop-start season.

For ‘The FFScout Charity Shield’, we at Fantasy Football Scout are pledging the cash equivalent – £300 – to NHS Charities Together.

The selfless work that our National Health Service key workers carry out on a daily basis has been brought into sharp focus over the last three months.

We’re honoured to be donating money to such a worthwhile cause and we’re inviting you to do the same via our JustGiving page.

We should stress that a donation is not mandatory and anyone can enter ‘The FFScout Charity Shield’ whether they are able to make a financial contribution or not; we fully appreciate that these are tough, unprecedented times and some of you will perhaps not be in a position to do so.

If you are able to spare a bob or two, however, then you can do so by clicking on the below link.

Many thanks to anyone who donates to the fund and good luck for the rest of the season.

    How is this BB team?
    Wc in 31+

    Leno - Patricio
    TAA Stevens Baldock Van Anholt Saiss
    Grealish Kdb Bruno Mahrez Fleck
    Tammy Jimi Kun

    Not keen on Ars attackers
    Any suggestions?

  4. fcsaltyballs

    On FH, best option:

    1. TAA McGinn
    2. Doherty Mount

    Ta

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      1 but dependant on McGinn being nailed on.

    Thoughts on BB team? have WC to clean up afterwards

    Mahrez KDB Grealish Mcginn Ozil
    Auba Kun Jota

    I know it's real barrel-scraping, but I've got an exact-money WC planned:

    A) Bring in Reina for the DGW, but means by GK pairing for the run-in is Reina McCarthy.
    B) Stick with McCarthy for the DGW, GK pairing becomes Krul McCarthy.

        Cheers. They rotate fairly well, hardest games in their rotation are Watford away and Everton, SHU at home.

  7. SpagBol

    Thoughts on this bench boost team?

    I wanted to keep my 3 players who I have the most value tied up in; which are TAA, Doherty, Jiminez...

    Leno
    TAA Doherty Stevens
    KDB Mahrez Grealish McGinn
    Aguero Auba Jiminez

    Reina | Baldock Fleck Aarons

    Cheers 🙂

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I have held onto those 3 too. Our squads are only 3 players different I think. I would downgrade one of the SHU wing backs to a centre back and upgrade Aarons if possible. Fleck could become Cantwell/Duda to give you more cash.

    2. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Identical as my last draft. Took out mahrez for ederson in the latest one and added a Chelsea mid.

  8. Hazardous1983
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Leno
    Oconnel stevens baldock
    Fernandes sterling grealish kdb
    Auba abraham.aguero

    0.6 in bank.

    How.is this team what changes suggested

    1. DeltaKilo
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Context please.

      FH I’m assuming?

      1. Hazardous1983
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yep free hit. Any suggestions

        1. DeltaKilo
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          I personally would stay away from
          Leno.

          Maybe Alonso or Doherty in at the back and get Hendo

          1. DeltaKilo
            • 10 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            Everything else looks good

  9. Woy_is_back

    bottomed

    Free hit or other chip?

    Guaita
    TAA Robbo Boly
    Salah KdB Fernandez Barnes
    Ings Vardy Jimmy

    1. DeltaKilo
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I have a very similar team and I have FH

      You are set up well for the run in

      1. Woy_is_back
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        ta

    2. Birds of Prey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Use the wildcard they're giving you. No Auba or Aguero?
      Seems not make sense to use free hit. IMO GL

  10. DeltaKilo
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Last decisions on FH

    A) Mount
    B) Pépé

    1) Lund
    2) Baldock

    Cheers

    1. Birds of Prey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A and maybe Pepe starts both with the 5 subs.

    2. Wally711
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      B2

  11. The Red Devil
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Leave out which one of this trio for BB? Will WC in 31+

    Sterling
    Mane
    Aubameyang

    1. DeltaKilo
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Mane

    2. Birds of Prey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Sterling is likely to get rotated, why WC in 31+?
      Can't get them all in? GL

      1. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Can't fit them all, have kdb aguero already, so have to leave out one

    3. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Aubameyang

  12. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Willian for a one gw punt anyone? Or is Mount the better option?

    1. DeltaKilo
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Mount is the love child

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Cheers

    2. jg7u
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I think Pulisic is has a higher ceiling if he starts. You think it's worth the gamble?

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        If he starts is the big question. Willian and mount probably more nailed than him.

  13. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Better option of the two?

    1. reina mahrez
    2. ederson mount

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      How about Grealish and Leno/Dean if you don't have them?

      Of these 2 I prefer B

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Already have leno and grealish. Cheers.

      2. Birds of Prey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I went Reina/Leno with BB. Wouldn't want Reina as starter. IMO GL
        2 at least Ederson and Mount are nailed.

    2. GreennRed
      • 9 Years

  14. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

    Saka or Cantwell only for GW30+? (Playing BB)

    1. Wally711
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      saka

      1. Birds of Prey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        That Q came up w/me too on the BB.
        I went Saka/Pukki, but that's a coin toss.

  15. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Need to shave 0.3 off this FH team.

    Hendo
    TAA Lundy Egan
    Mane KDB Mahrez Grealish
    Kun Auba Samatta

    I guess Lundy to O'Connell is the only way but really want to punt on Lundstram for this gw.

    1. Werner Bremen
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Or Mane to Fernandes maybe

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Trent to Robertson for 1 week might also work

  16. Werner Bremen
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Who takes the band?
    A KDB
    B Aguero
    C Sterling

    1. Wally711
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A or B (its a tough one though)

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      B

    3. Birds of Prey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      B

  17. Wally711
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Saka or Mount?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Saka

    2. Birds of Prey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Saka price is nicer.

    3. Soto Ayam
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Mount. It's villa lads

    4. french holiday
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Mount looked good in training and can do well vs that Villa defence. Saka may be a bench player as it seems he lost his place to Tierney and has to compete with the mids

    Mane and Salah to get rested in gw 33 vs Aston villa. 48 hrs after Man City vs Liverpool

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yeah thinking similar

      Looking at TC Salah GW31 for that reason - get their last “mangingful” home game, unless there are shocks in between times

      1. internal error
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        It will be the same for City

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Pool have 8 days recover between 31 & 32 though so think they’ll be full out & going for goals GW31...

          Or do you mean City to rest Kun & Sterling in GW33 away to Southampton?

    2. Ginkapo FPL

    3. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Possibly both City and Pool will give games to squad players after they play each other. Pool should have league won by then and City will be have little to play foro abdvthinking ahead to Real second leg.

    4. french holiday
      • 3 Years

      With 5 subs available both Klopp and Pep can play their main attackers in all fixtures by managing their minutes.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Klopp rarely ever manages Salah/Mané minutes though - generally they either start or don’t

        Be interesting to see does he start now

  19. karsworde
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    What would you do with these players, keep/sell? Keen to BB GW 30+ but have value tied up in all of them.

    Salah
    TAA
    Jimenez
    Maddison

    1. karsworde
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  20. Dthinger
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    another FH idea:

    Henderson
    Bellerin Oconnell Stevens
    KDB Pepe Grealish McGinn
    Kun Jesus Auba

    3.9 Targett Cantwell Lascelles

  21. Soto Ayam
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 1 month ago

    For this gw only, which would you prefer:

    A) Leno and Fleck.
    B) Henderson and Saka

    Already have 2 Sheffield utf Def

    ?

    1. Wally711
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      B

      1. Soto Ayam
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Cheers, however, I'm leaning towards A now. Leno isn't the perfect choice, but I think fleck will play more minutes than saka

      A

  22. Soto Ayam
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 1 month ago

    I'm just curious, but what is the thinking behind the idea that there will be more goals scored when games are behind closed doors, other than what has happened in the bundesliga?

      1. Soto Ayam
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        None. I'm trying to understand the logic behind that train of thought

        1. french holiday
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Similar to a training or a friendly game behind closed doors where players dont have the pressure of the crowds and can free the schakles.

          1. Soto Ayam
            • 1 Year

    Hi all. How's this BB team looking? Using WC 31+ or week after. WC, FH, also available

    Henderson - Reina
    O'Connell - TAA - Lascelles - Boly - Targett
    Mane - KdB - D.Silva - Grealish - Fleck
    Nketiah - Auba - Aguero

    Plan is to WC after GW31+ to be able to adjust team against biggest rivals and to have more info from 2 GW's. For GW31 I have 3x ARS(sou a) 3x MCY(che a) Boly (BOU h) Lascelles (AST h), 3 x AST (new a) and 2 x SHU (man a) Maybe bringing Jimmy on for Aguero for GW 31.

    A) Good plan, Good team
    B) Good plan, fix team (how?)
    C) Shitty plan

  24. fpork
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    How does it look? Using benchboost 30+ and wildcard 31+.
    Leno (Henderson)
    Alexander-Arnold, O'Connell, Egan, Targett (Alonso)
    De Bruyne, McGinn, Grealish (Sterling) (Cantwell)
    Agüero, Nketiah, Aubameyang

    So with a BB team maxed out with 3 villa, 3 arsenal, 3 city & 3 Sheffield United players, who are the stand out remaining players to pick for a 1 week punt.

    Not seeing much love for tammy here. But surely away to villa should see goals for him.

    1. french holiday
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Tammy isnt nailed as Giroud has been on red hot form.

    2. Soto Ayam
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      He went off the boil this year, but against villa he's certainly worth considering. I've plumped for Alonso, thinking he'll get more points than a villa def on a dgw. Mount would be my other choice if I had to

  26. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Torn between FHitting now vs going for an unlimited transfers XI with FH & TC saved for another rainy day...

    Unlimited transfers squad would be:

    Pope
    AWB, TAA, Doc
    KDB, Son, Bruno, Rich
    Vardy, Rash, Jimmy
    (Hart, Lundy, Taylor, Gundozy)

    Whereas I’d be free hitting team below to 11x DGW’ers:

    Ederson
    AWB, TAA, Saiss
    Salah, KDB, Bruno, Martial
    Vardy, DCL, Jimmy
    (Martin, Lundy, Taylor, Guendozi)

    Maybe TC KDB this week instead of FH? Hmmmm....

    1. french holiday
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      The FH would allow you to field the best possible DGW XI without concern about future GWs or TV. I plan to hold my WC for a few more seeks and so being happy with my team in GW29 may ignore the lure of the UT and BB.

    2. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      FH.
      That team looks good going forward
