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.

    Doherty a better pick than TAA for this week?

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

      You cant say that since both are SGW players. Maybe if you compare with a City or Arsenal defender.

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I'm comparing as I can only have one of them on a FH this week.
        Doherty gives me more funds to spend in other areas.
        Not much between them this week imo.

    2. Lazaretti
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Doherty imo

    3. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I'm also having the same dilemma.

      TAA, O'Connell & Leno
      or
      Doherty, Stevens & Hendo

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        DSH for me

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I’ve no chips left and gone Doherty, fixtures so good hopefully he can just stay there for good

        2. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I've started to think that might be the better option. But can't forget TAA vs Leicester.

    4. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Doherty this week only

  2. Do I Not Like Orange
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Any ideas yet on which Norwich player tested positive? Have Cantwell in all my drafts atm but as I'm playing BB would rather not risk a SGW player who may not play at all.

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

      No and dont think we will know before the deadline as it’s 2 days before Norwich plays

    2. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Scenes when Pukki owners find out its him 😉

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Tempted to get rid of pukki just to avoid this potential situation

    3. Jullepuu
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      My opinion is that we shouldn't worry about which player it is because at any given moment another player can get the virus and we couldn't do anything about it

  3. lilmessipran
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is there a collated list out there of all the friendly matches with lineups that epl teams have played before the league restarts?

      1. lilmessipran
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Thanks a lot

  4. Tibbs
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    1) Özil + Mahrez
    2) Sterling + Saka

    This is for BB. Just a gut feeling (and call me stupid) but I quite fancy Özil to finish the season strong, albeit I am basing that on nothing as his underlying stats at the moment are awful.

    Secondly is the consensus that Sterling is likely to get more mins that Mahrez?

    1. LLoris
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A

    2. LLoris
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Sterling probably more mins but who knows

    3. Shark Team
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Sterling going to start both matches along with Ederson Laporte Walker and KDB

    4. Forgetmeknot
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      2) more certain of minutes for me

  5. Sir_Durs8
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Thoughts on my BB team this week?

    Leno Reina
    TAA Doherty Egan Baldock Stevens
    Sterling KDB Grealish D.Luiz Cantwell
    Aguero(c) Auba Nketiah

    Or do I go B below to set up better for GW32 so that I can FH31 and WC33?

    A) Nketiah & Sterling
    B) Jimenez & Mahrez

    1. LLoris
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      B

  6. LLoris
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Best GK 4.9 and below just for this week?

    1. Jullepuu
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Reina, Ramsdale, Krul, McCarthy. Not much in it

  7. HurriKane
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Do you think Nketiah would start atleast one match in gw30+ ?

    Considering a punt on him to enable big hitters elsewhere

    1. LLoris
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      dont think so hell come on against city when theyre losing

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

      Yeah can see him start vs BHA but no guarantee

      1. HurriKane
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Does Arterts favour him over laca and martineli?

        Oh was it laca injury that forced him to play nketiah for 3 consecutive gws

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

          You cant say Laca isnt on Arteta's thoughts. Who knows Nkeitah may be at best comming off the bench in both games.

  8. The_FF_King
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Why are people using their Free Hit when we have a free wildcard?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      they dont have WC no 2 to fix the mess and get rid of 3 city, 3 ars and 3 villa in gw 31

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

        Or maybe hold the WC a bit longer when there is a fix swing for teams like West Ham as well as not have to reverse their transfers with hits to bring back some of their players.

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

      Bc they like their current team for GW31 and following and dont have WC left.

      First day out here for the last two weeks, he?

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

      Since the FH would not affect the Team Value and managers will have full freedom to load up on all the premiums of the DGW and revert back to their original team the next GW which thsy are happy with.

    4. The_FF_King
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Ah ok I’m with you

      1. The_FF_King
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Cheers all 🙂

  9. offspinnersinahurry
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Can any Norwich fans put me off Tettey at 4.5 as an alternative to Cantwell at 4.7?

    1. Jullepuu
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Duda over Tettey for sure

  10. Cak Juris
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Best option:
    A. Laporte - Lundstram - Saiss - Cantwell
    B. Doherty - Lundstram - Hanley - Fleck
    C. Doherty - Steven - Lascelles - Cantwell

    1. JohnBlack
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      C

    2. La Vida Latte
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I am on B so I will vote for that 🙂

  11. Well you know, Triffic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is Pepe even nailed? Trying to see if I can get an Arsenal mid. The likes of Saka worry me though.

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

      No he is not nailed at all.

    2. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      why would you want an Ars mf?

      1. LLoris
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        A dgw ozil or Mount?

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          mount every day of the week

      2. Well you know, Triffic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Because it's Arsenal!

    3. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Expect rotation with only 2 days in between.

      Only leno and auba are safe

    4. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      That's a resounding no. Thanks all lol

    5. french holiday
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Pepe is fairly nailed as he has played sufficicient minutes for Arteta. He is the equivalent of a Sterling at City imo. Can be rubbish or ravishing.

  12. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Which is the better pick on a FH?

    A. Doherty + Lundstram
    B. TAA + O'Connell
    C. Robbo/VVD + Lundstram

    1. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      B

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      In your case I like B more but if Lundy is starting then A.

  13. Von Lipwig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    A. Henderson + McGinn
    B. Ederson + Cantwell

    1. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Depends on rest of your team

  14. LLoris
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is Vinagre confirmed for Wolves?

    1. GREEN IS GOOD
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I asked this, and was told apparently not as he was covering for an injured player pre lockdown.

      1. LLoris
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        oh ok thanks

        1. GREEN IS GOOD
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I could be wrong.

          Look at Kiko F at Watford

    2. Jullepuu
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Jonny will start and Vinagre will be on the bench

  15. Von Lipwig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Why do I feel like if I replace Salah with Sterling, Sterling will score like 5 points over two games, and Salah will score a hatrick? That's what's going to happen isn't it?

    1. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Inevitable. Liverpool will put Everton to the sword with Mina out.

      Everton has been leaky lately too with 13 goals conceded in last 6 gws

    2. Soto Ayam
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Well, now that you've said it and because that's exactly what I've done. Yes, it'll happen!

  16. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Who is the current penalty taker for City? Still Kun?

    1. LLoris
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Kdb

    2. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Gundogan 1st choice.

  17. Shark Team
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Jota Pukki or Deeney for the next 3 fixtures?

    1. LLoris
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Pukki

    2. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Jota no brainer was in electric form with 6 goals 2 assists in his last 4 matches before lockdown

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

      Jota is a player who depends on mommentum to get his season running so i would not jump from the off.

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Jota for now

  18. Holmes
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Can Mahrez and Doucoure outscore Son and Douglas by 4pts? (This week)

    1. LLoris
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yes i think they will,Id go Mahrez and Mcginn though

    2. french holiday
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Depends if Mahrez gets similar minutes over the 2 games to Son.

    3. Soto Ayam
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yes

    4. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yeah I reckon. Not sure on doucoure?

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Not sure of Mahrez to be honest 😀

    5. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yeah I would think so.

      Son could have a tough time against AWB and not expecting much from Douglas.

  19. waltzingmatildas
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Guys, could really do with an outside view as I've gone over this a million times!
    I don't have wc, so do I stick with this team from gw31?
    Pope krul
    TAA Doherty otamendi ctaylor kiko
    Salah kdb Bruno sarr saka
    Auba ings jota

    Not too sure on ings, jota, otamendi, sarr, auba

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

      Wouldnt stick with Ota, Saka, Ings for the rest of the season.

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        No i wouldn't. But would you be happy with that squad from 31? Or use unlimited transfers now?

  20. EL tridente
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    How is this BB team looking?

    Ederson, Leno
    Boly, Stevens, Egan, Targett, Maguire
    De Bruyne, Sterling, Grealish, Fernandes, Fleck
    Jimenez, Auba, Samatta

    1. LLoris
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      No agueros kinda risky

  21. Pomp and Circumstance
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    DCL or Jota?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Jota for next 3

    2. french holiday
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I prefer DCL. Nailed + good stats + should play full 90m most games. Jota maybe explosive or nothing.

  22. Dacra
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    How's this for a FH team?

    Reina (Trash)
    Lund - Baldock - Stevens (Aarons, Williams)
    KdB - Sterling - Grealish - Pepe - Ozil
    Aguero - Auba (Trash)

    Will leave me with a reasonable team going into 31, with WC and free hit left.

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

      Yeah good to go.

  23. Jafalad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Has anyone acknowledged Ragabolly for saving us all from eternal damnation?

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yeah I saw a few yesterday thanking him. Plus I did on twitter.
      It has been great!

      1. Jafalad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Good good. That lad deserves a medal. He created a game that was even better than the real thing.

    2. Gringo Kid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Massive Thanks to Ragabolly, it was amazing game

  24. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Better option for GW30+ only?

    A) TAA, O'Connell & Leno
    B) Doherty, Stevens/Lundy & Hendo

    Have Egan too. Cheers! 🙂

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years

      B

  25. De Gea is GOAT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Any help with this team (Not BB) is much appreciated guys: Decided to leave Mane out and really don't know how i feel about it 🙁

    Button Hendo
    TAA Doherty AWB Lascelles Lund

    BB and FH left

  26. La Roja

    Anyone is aware of press conferences being scheduled today/tomorrow?

  27. LLoris
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    You think it would be a better idea to
    A) BB
    B) TC

    still have my wc intact

    1. Dacra
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Depends on your team, prep for BB in 30, WC 31 if youre not happy with your team, FH 30 and revert to current team in 31 if youre happy with it / concerned about losing value building for BB team.

      1. Dacra
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I misread..

        1. LLoris
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          lol i have every chip what would you use this gameweek

          1. Dacra
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            My first is right then I think, depends on you team.

    2. Soto Ayam
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      TC.
      For BB its only an extra DGw play, who's most likely a villa defender

      1. LLoris
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        but if I wc im gonna need a lot of funds on the bench

    3. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      or do nothing and save chips for later

  28. kalshot
    • 1 Year

    Interesting Chelsea result yesterday. Attacking options against Villa are surely a must have?

      Lots of chatter about them for the run in - they probably have the right amount of "incentive" to drive them on too with utd & wolves pushing them hard for 4th

      Not really convinced from an FPL perspective personally though

      Each of their attacking options have demonstrated epic trolling level for most of the season:

      - Tammy: 7 goals from 2.5 XG in GWs 3 through 5.. then 6 goals in his other 20 starts (from ~10XG)
      - Mount: 6 returns in 9 games in his purple patch from GW2-10, just in time to lure in masses of eager new owners, before then getting 2G & 4A in the next 20 Gameweeks
      - Pulisic: Don't even start me on that little rascal after his exploits from GW13 onwards

        Very true but as a one off against Villa with their poor defence record it might be a worthy punt.

    Is there a guaranteed 4.5 million starter in gameweek 30+, preferably a double game weeker?

      Douglas Luiz Targett
