Recapping the best Southampton players ahead of FPL restart

With just days to go before the Premier League season restarts, our series of team-by-team refresher articles continues with a look at Southampton.

Taking data from Gameweeks 24-29 as a jumping-off point for wider analysis, we will be discussing the players from Ralph Hasenhuttl’s squad who most catch the eye.

Fantasy managers may well be swerving the Saints to start off, with some tricky matches to come between Gameweeks 31+ and 35+.

Should the south coast club still have ‘something to play for’ come the fixture swing in Gameweek 36+, however, then they will likely re-enter the radar at that point.

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

    How’s this looking? BB in 30+ followed by a Wildcard

    Leno Henderson
    TAA Stevens O’Connell Boly Saiss
    KDB Sterling Pepe Grealish McGinn
    Aguero Samatta Nketiah

    Personally happy to go without Auba for the benefit of the rest of the team, allows me to get Sterling plus Pepe & hold others at the back - what do you think???

    Please advise... all comments gratefully received

      Still I think you could risk with Auba. Team with Raz is overkill with City imo and Pep is just hard to trust, Auba at least plays both. Also why double Wolwes defence?

        It’s a tough one , think Auba will start vs. City but the turnaround is quick - still think he’ll start vs. Brighton but out wide. Feel that Nketiah will start up top vs. Brighton

        2 x Wolves defence, holding a little value with Boly & can’t see anyone better than Saiss for £4.6m - plan to hold them both long term

        Concerned by no Auba but may well take the risk

          I understand this is why I have Auba&Nketiah. GL mate.

    Looking to BB, got some positions which are up for grabs:

    Leno xxx
    TAA Egan O’Connell xxx xxx
    Sterling KDB Grealish xxx xxx
    Aguero Jiménez xxx

    A) Hendo, Saiss, Targett, Fernandes, Saka, Tammy
    B) McCarthy, Lund, Saiss, McGinn, Saka, Auba
    C) Reina, Baldock, Lacelles, McGinn, Cantwell, Auba
    D) Reina, Stevens, Saiss, Fernandes, Cantwell, Abraham

    Anyone stand out? 😆

    1. JACK ARMY
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      A) but with McGinn & Özil in midfield

      1. FPL Pillars
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Never going for Özil. Got a bit of value in Fernandes so that’s why if I don’t go for Auba I’ll have him and tams (if confident he will start)

    2. iL PiStOlErO

      Lets say C

    Any indication of who in Norwich got corona?

    1. Just A Hat
      • 11 Years

      Early reports are Cantwell was sent home early from training

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  6. iL PiStOlErO

    How does this look for BB?

    Henderson
    TAA Egan O'Connell Targett
    KdB Pepe Grealish Mcginn
    Auba(c) Kun

    Ederson Soy Barnes Nketiah

    Salah is out but I only lose 0.3 on him. Had more value tied up in Soy, TAA and KdB. Just not sure about Pepe...

    P.s. still have all 3 chips + wc so planning to wc in 31.

    1. JACK ARMY
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      If it’s just for one week I’d lose Soy & Barnes for Saiss & Mount?

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I actually think Lei will do good with cs. I am not even sure if Mason will play plus I think Wolwes will not keep a cs. But who knows...

    Samatta & Sterling

    Current FH team

    Henderson

    Eagan TAA O’Connell

    Grealish KDB Mahrez Pepe

    Auba Aguero Lacazette

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year

      Lacca and Ryad for bigger ceiling and Raz and Samatta for more secure option... but i like the current team.

    My GW 38 stays in GW31 if I FH?

  10. Cheesyzoot

    Thoughts on final BB draft? Will WC in 31:

    Leno
    Baldock, Stevens, Lundstram
    KDB, Sterling, Grealish, McGinn, Saka
    (K)un, Auba

    Reina, Tammy, Saiss, Lascelles

    Realise I am going all out with the DGW. 0 ITB

  11. lordkippe
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Please help me by commenting your opinion on my BB team

    Leno - Henderson

    Doherty - Azpi - Egan - Targett - Lascelles

    Sterling - KDB - Grealish - Doucoure - Norwood

    Aguero - Rashford - Abraham

  12. La Roja
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Anyone tempted to double on Ederson + Laporte?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Not so much, better to use that City place for attackers but they can keep two cs, It is just that Pep is hard to trust and now with 5 subs he can take Laporte off before 60min....

  13. New Post
  14. Karan14

    Better option only for GW30+?

    A) Doherty/Alonso, Stevens/Baldock & Henderson

    B) TAA, O'Connell & Leno

    Have Egan also

    Cheers! 🙂

  15. ratski
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    A. Sterling and Targett (have 3 shu def also)
    B. Mahrez and taa

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      B

  16. Cricket_Badger
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    For BB30+ & likely WC31+

    A) Mahrez + B. Fernandes + Aubameyang + Nketiah (+ save 0.2m value in Bruno)

    B) Sterling + Barnes + Jimenez + DCL (+ save 0.3m value in DCL)

    NB: Could potentially delay WC if going with B

  17. JACK ARMY
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Back to the drawing board, which do you prefer?

    A) Auba, Fleck, Targett, Egan
    B) Samatta, Pepe, Stevens, O’Connell

    All advice is gratefully received

  18. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    My plan: (please tell me if it sounds good or bad to you)
    Gw30+: Bench Boost(3mci, 3shu, 2ars, 2avl players + wolves x3 + Sarr + Lascelles)
    Gw31+: Sterling out for Son or Fernandes
    Gw 32+:...Transfers....
    Gw33+: Wildcard having a better view of all the players and the teams planning for a great team for the last 6 gws
    Gw 34+ - 38+: Free Hit in a gw where my team hasn't got satisfying fixtures probably gw 37-38 where everything comes to an end

  19. Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    How about this for a BB team? Any tricks I've missed?

    Henderson, Leno
    TAA, Lundstram, Egan, Lascelles, Targett
    KDB, Sterling, Grealish, McGinn, Saka
    Auba, Aguero, Jimenez

    Will WC in GW31+

      Lundy and McGinn may bot start, likely get some minutes.
