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.

    Hows the BB team look? Plan on WC in 2-3 weeks after seeing form + rotation.

    Dubravka McCarthy
    TAA Stevens Baldock Justin Saiss
    Mane KDB Grealish Barnes Cantwell
    Kun Rash Jimi

      It has a lot to like
      As you’ll have one FT in WK31, who would you transfer out to make that week’s team better?
      You can easily get a DGW keeper
      O’Connell or Egan better picks than Baldock IMO

    Thoughts? No help last time...

    GW30 : Triple Captain
    GW31 : Free hit

    [ Henderson ]
    Trent [ Laporte ] [ O'Connell ]
    [ KdB ] [ Grealish ] [ El Ghazi ] Son
    [ Aguero ] Pukki Jimenez

    Foster B.Fernandes Boly Diop

    Also:
    A) Henderson, Fabianski, Diop, El Ghazi
    B) Krul, McCarthy, Egan, Sarr

    B would mean starting Bruno GW30+ and instead of El Ghazi to Sarr, I would do Egan to Cathcart 🙂

      Dont you need Lundstram if youre triple capping?

    2. french holiday

      8 months, 16 days ago

      You can instead FH this GW and not worry about TV and attack the DGW and C Salah/Mane in 31 when they welcome Palace at Anfield for their coronation.

      1. Coys96
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        I don't want 3 Pool after 31 though.

        That's why I'm free hitting 31, so I can triple up on Leicester and Pool. Get Doherty and Kane. As well get rid of City players as they play Chelsea

        1. french holiday
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          I feel Klopp wont rotate as much as people seem to think after Pool win the title. They will chase records and golden boots.

          1. Coys96
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 16 days ago

            Not sure. They will give opportunities to young players so they get a medal. 3 is still too many

            1. french holiday
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 16 days ago

              Maybe but the likes of Salah and Mane will want to chase the golden boot. I dont think we will see a CupXI side is what i am saying with Pool yougsters.

              1. Coys96
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                8 months, 16 days ago

                I think he will give Minamino a chance for sure. Maybe also Harvey Elliot

                1. french holiday
                  • 3 Years
                  8 months, 16 days ago

                  Lets not forget with 5 subs he can always give his attackers enough minutes.

                    True, but if spending 12.5 million u want a player who plays a lot of mins and is captainable

                    1. french holiday
                      • 3 Years
                      8 months, 16 days ago

                      I will always have one of Salah/Manè.

                      1. Coys96

                        Yeah it's safe

      Whos getting the armband?

      1. Coys96
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Aguero

  3. Jon Walter's Hatty
    • 7 Years

    Not seeing the Silvas in many teams. May be worth a punt if chasing

    1. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Everyone is chasing except one.

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Not if an ML win is your only motivation.

    2. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Bernardo maybe but his numbers this season aren't great

    3. The Mandalorian

      Limited mins

    Hi how does my BB team look?

    Leno Henderson
    Trent Ota Doherty O’Connell Egan
    KDB Mané Bruno Grealish McGinn
    Kun(c) Tammy Nketiah

    I have all chips, plan to WC next gw

    1. french holiday
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      If possible try to get Auba/3rd City attack even if that involves taking money off TAA and Doherty for this GW as you will be WC them back in 31+

      1. Crystal Alice
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Auba too pricey, I like the Nketiah punt with the extra transfers it could pay off. I like Doherty's fixture and have far too much value in Trent

    2. Lav
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      If you plan to WC right away just go DGW heavy.

      1. Crystal Alice
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Not confident tripling up on Arsenal or Villa really, prefer some balance. Possibly Bruno could make way, not too damaging to buy him back

    3. Ian & Zen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Unless you have a lot of value tied up in Mane, I’d give Sterling a go for the DGW
      You easily get him back when you WC

      1. french holiday
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Eaxctly its Manè v Everton and Sterling v Arsenal and Burnley. It can go either way but you would think Sterling atleast matches him.

        1. Pieterke30
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Yeah but I dont have my WC left. Dont want Sterling in 31 but do want Mané...

  5. Tsparkes10
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    0.3 saved with TAA and 0.2 in Jimenez... Worth keeping on a bb before a WC?

    Think I'll defo keep Bruno as good fixtures and 0.2 saved :/

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      I'm in the same position with TAA/DCL (0.3m) and Fernandes/Salah (0.2m).

      Currently keeping TAA and Fernandes on BB but still undecided on the latter. I do want him back for 31+. It's tough because my TV is really, really poor.

    2. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      I'm keeping both. TV is a consideration but I like them as single GW options too.

  6. Crashjct
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Hello everyone!

    I’m using unlimited transfers & BB GW 30+. Which pair should I go with?

    A. Tammy & Fleck
    B. Son & Ayew

  7. timawflowers
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Play Lund or bring in Baldock?

    1. Lav
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Baldock

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Baldock more nailed.

    3. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Lund has attacking returns off the bench

  8. CostaCoffee
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    7-1 win for Chelsea against QPR this morning. Loftus-Cheek brace

    1. french holiday
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Did Alonso / Tammy / Pulisic get any minutes?

      1. CostaCoffee
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Presume so, will probably find out more later. Giroud, Willian and Gilmour x2 also scored

        1. french holiday
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Ok much appreciated if we know Alonso is nailed..seems Tammy has competition from Giroud

          1. CostaCoffee
            • 7 Years
            8 months, 16 days ago

            Reece James has been injured and only returned to training a few days ago. Alonso should probably start against Villa in that case

            1. french holiday
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 16 days ago

              Def considering 2 Chelsea players v that Villa defence.

            2. Hazz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 16 days ago

              Yes - signs looking like he will start.

    2. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Any line up info?

    3. Lav
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Goatmour brace. Giroud & Willian got a goal each.

    4. Vazza
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Giroud was in good form before the break so he’d be unlucky if he doesn’t get a chance against AVL.

    5. Flynny
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Hi.....been kind of settled on this free hit now for 24hrs. How does it look? Thanks

      Leno
      Taa Stevens balcock
      Sterling (c) Kdb grealish fleck
      Kun auba abraham

      Thanks

      1. Rinseboy
        • 9 Years

        I have the same apart from Henderson for Leno and Doherty for Stevens. Like it a lot!

      2. Lav
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Looks good

        • 10 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Solid enough.

        Looks like you have a similar dilemma to me - fitting Sterling in and where to sacrifice. For you it's Fleck in midfield, granted you are also fitting in TAA so that takes up even more budget.

        1. Flynny
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Thanks Andy

          The only thing I can think of is ditching sterling and Fleck for mahrez and pepe

          Do u think that is worth it?

          Affordable just by downgrading Stevens to egan

          1. andy85wsm
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            8 months, 16 days ago

            Finding that decision hard to be honest.

            Gut feeling is if anyone is going to get 2 starts in midfield it's Sterling. Mahrez just feels like a 90 + mins in the other game.

            Appreciate all players could just start 1 game, but Sterling feels like the one who could start both.

            But Mahrez has been pretty consistent with points when he has played and does give a bit more £££ to play with. Whether Pepe is worth it though is another one hard to answer! Gut feeling there is he won't be.

            That likely didn't help you at all, but it's good to think out loud sometimes 😆

            1. Would Ed Woodward
              • 2 Years
              8 months, 16 days ago

              I remember when I last punted on Mahrez, played 0 mins in 3 games, lol.

            2. Flynny
              • 5 Years
              8 months, 16 days ago

              No worries mate...

              I quite like the idea of captioning sterling as differential so that is swinging it at the moment.

              Plus Fleck was in my squad from before lockdown. Even though he didn't deliver many points I have a bit of an emotional attachment to him! Good luck!

      4. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Mount Jotta/Pukki over Fleck Abraham?

    6. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Have WC, BB and FH chips left.

      How does the FH team look?

      1.5itb
      Leno
      TAA Lundstram O'connell
      Sterling Bruno KDB Grealish Fleck
      Aguero Auba

    7. andy85wsm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Any interest in Arsenal defenders outside of Leno?

      Bellerin and Tierney have started both the "pre-season" games they've had.

      Henderson + one of those covers the clean sheets that Leno + Sheffield United defender provides.

      Big plus for the Leno combo is it's cheaper + pretty much nailed on 60+ mins.

      But the Arsenal defender combo means a potential slight differential. Just not sure there's enough upside to risk it

      1. Lav
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        I have interest in 0 Arsenal players.

        1. andy85wsm
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Not even Aubameyang?

          1. Lav
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 16 days ago

            Nope, gone all season without him and done well. Arsenal just do not appeal to me. Backing Kun Rash Jimi

            1. Mr. O'Connell
              • 8 Years
              8 months, 16 days ago

              BB certainly looks a lot better without Auba

      2. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Not for me.

        If City are firing on all cylinders your Arsenal defenders could end up on minus points from that game.

        1. andy85wsm
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Leno too though right?

      3. Greek Freak
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        I considered Bellerin, but I think it's more likely that Leno gets more points because of all the saves he'll have to make.

        1. andy85wsm
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          He has had to make a lot of saves this season that's for sure!

      4. PompeyUpNorth!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Luiz? Gets the odd goal n assist.

        1. Greek Freak
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Too expensive for me. I'd consider him or Bellerin for the run-in of more favourable fixtures, but most of the time they don't get attacking returns so I certainly wouldn't feel comfortable counting on goals or assists in only 2 games.

      5. french holiday
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        I think Luiz is the most nailed and Tierney is the most exciting Arsenal defender if one has to consider them for this GW.

      6. HamezMace
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        If I was going for anyone it’d be Bellerin.
        But I don’t see them keeping a clean sheet against City, and due to his price that probably rules him out....he’s not on the attacking returns level as say, Doherty, or Alonso.

        1. french holiday
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Bellerin has lost some pace due to the injuries and unsure if he carries the same attacking threat as seasons ago.

          1. HamezMace
            • 6 Years
            8 months, 16 days ago

            Yeah I don’t disagree.
            I am also a little concerned with all of the high energy wing back players, they’re obviously prime for early subs...although if they get subbed on 61minutes with a clean sheet locked in it might not be so bad?

            1. french holiday
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 16 days ago

              Well agree on that. The likes of TAA and Doherty can be subbed off early but dont think before 60mins.

    8. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Having second thoughts on using transfers to create a BB team due to loss of TV and doubts over certain players.

      What do you think of this FH team?

      Henderson
      TAA - Doherty - O'Connell - Stevens
      Sterling - KDB - Grealish
      Aguero - Vardy - Jiminez

      (Fodder bench)

      1. Lav
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Solid. I have a similar thought to you, but I am playing BB still despite only having 5 DGW players

      2. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Thanks.

        Yes, could be a great week to BB, hope you do well.

        I had Salah, Cantwell and Krul in my BB team. The minor injury for Salah plus the positive Covid result for a Norwich player has made me rethink my plans.

    9. Oldie99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Think im done, BB30+ with wildcard straight after, good to go?

      Only question is Laporte + McGinn OR Otamendi + grealish?

      Reina Pope
      TAA Laporte Lord Egan Saiss
      KDB Saka Pepe Fleck McGinn
      Auba Kun(C) Jimi

      1. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Laporte & McGinn IMO.

          Where is Bruno ? I think he is the best Utd FPL asset.

          Fyi, if I free hit gw 30. I will own Salah, Trent, Jimenez, Boly, Son. No Leicester, Doherty, triple pool, wasted funds on KdB. Double United attack (against SHU)

          As per my post above, I was planning to BB gw30 and FH later, but now looking like I will FH gw30 instead.

                  Thanks Cricket, it's got to be Aguero surely. Kevin will no doubt play 180 mins though.

                  Was torn between going 12 double gameweek players before realising the potential in Chelsea and Wolves fixtures.

                Looks good, although not sure if I trust Saka to start now that Tierney is fit. He's a brilliant cheap option though

              Still undecided on my strategy. Please give me some advice? BB, FH, WC left. Now thinking of hitting WC 33/34, so BB now and FH whenever. Trying to find a balance between dgw players and players I want for 31&32 at least. 0.1itb

              Ederson/Leno
              Alonso TAA Egan Boly O'Connell
              Grealish KdB Bruno McGinn Saka
              Auba Jimenez Kane(early punt)

              Should I downgrade Ederson to get Kun in for Kane maybe? Any other thoughts?

              1. The Count of Monte Cristo
                • 8 Years
                8 months, 16 days ago

                I prefer having Kun over Kane as you do not have Sterling. Rest looks good. Are you adamant on keeping Alonso

                1. My heart goes Salalalalah
                  • 4 Years
                  8 months, 16 days ago

                  Just think Alonso has good fixtures in the near future? Rather him out than Ederson to get Kun?

                  1. The Count of Monte Cristo
                    • 8 Years
                    8 months, 16 days ago

                    Hard to say. Assume you'll play Leno in 31+ and 32+ and Ederson is a lot sitting on bench for a few weeks, but you know that's the risk with your strategy. Was thinking what if you downgraded Ederson event to Henderson but still that wouldn't be enough to go Kane -> Kun. Ugh, tough one.

                Its simple if you decide to use the UT+BB then you should go with a strong team for this DGW and then WC the next GW.

                1. Latch86
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years

                  This

                  • 8 Years
                  8 months, 16 days ago

                  I think he's just thinking that the points he would forego this week by not having a full DGW quota would be offset by delaying his WC by 1 or 2 GW's.

                  Depends on how invested he is in some players too.

                  1. My heart goes Salalalalah
                    • 4 Years
                    8 months, 16 days ago

                    Correct. Haven't decided yet, but BB and then WC is not that simple with the value I have tied-up in a few players. Just think my team will be considerably weaker for the run-in if I BB now and WC right after

                    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
                      • 8 Years
                      8 months, 16 days ago

                      For me I have 0,3m tied up in TAA & DCL and 0.2m tied up in Fernandes & Salah. Atm I still have TAA and Fernandes, but I feel removing Fernandes might help me access Sterling instead of Mahrez. I'm really not sure tbh.

                  Cheers. But I don't think it's that simple. I will lose a lot of value, which means my WC team is not close to what I want. I bought DCL at 5.8, and need 6.5 to get back. 0.4 lost there. Not to mention Salah, Pope, Martial etc

              Really poor TV - current BB30+ side:

              Leno | McCarthy
              TAA | Lundstram | Egan | O'Connell | Lascelles
              KDB | Mahrez | Grealish | Fernandes | Cantwell
              Aguero | Aubameyang | Nketiah

              Have 0.2m tied up in Fernandes but thinking of foregoing this to upgrade Mahrez to Sterling?

                • 3 Years
                8 months, 16 days ago

                I would forego the Fernandes money (I'm doing the same with Salah, probably Martial) and upgrade Nketiah. Jota maybe?

                1. The Count of Monte Cristo
                  • 8 Years
                  8 months, 16 days ago

                  Thanks for this. Fernandes + Nketiah is exactly the same for me as Jimenez + Saka, which is an option.

                  Had not really considered Jota as I didn't really fancy McGinn (Bruno + Nket -> Jota + McGinn)

              2. Red Rock
                • 3 Years
                8 months, 16 days ago

                Looks really good. I would hold Bruno, he's their creator and you'd think if United do score he would be involved, plus good fixtures after spurs

                You could drop Lundstrum but honestly with 5 subs there will be rotation from everyone. I wish I could fit him in but it'd be stressful waiting for the lineup

                1. The Count of Monte Cristo
                  • 8 Years
                  8 months, 16 days ago

                  Thanks. I don't think I will be waiting on lineups because as you say there will be subs; hoping Lund will start one of the two and get 30 mins off the bench in the other.

                DCL. Nailed + Jiminez is a more safer pick from Wolves attack.

              All chips available. WC next week and BB team currently:

              Leno, Ramsdale
              Baldock, Stevens, Lundstram, TAA, Tanganga
              Grealish, Douglas Luiz, McGinn, Pepe, KDB
              Kun, Auba, Jesus (0,0M bank)

              Haven't seen Jesus in BB-teams and this is best team I could build up with him.

              What do you think of this team?

                8 months, 16 days ago

                Jesus is an interesting shout, could be a good differential. Personally wouldn't triple up with Villa in midfield, I'm just going for Grealish. Maybe the Jesus money could improve Luiz/McGinn?

                  especially as Villa play against the treble Sheff Utd D in one of those games

                    Jesus to Pukki should give you enough in the bank to upgrade those Villa mids, and you could still go Ederson or Leporte for your third city player.

                    Yea I know it's kind a odd have 3 Villa attackers and 3 Shu defenders but if Villa scores I think those players could be involved and its +++ for me and if they don't score I will +++ tripling Shu defence.

                    And there is of course that second game also for those Villa midfielders

                  Thanks for the reply.

                  The thing is I'm trying to get the best out of the Dgw players. Don't think I wan't Villa defenders and if I go with Jesus then there really isn't available spots for Villa players elsewhere.

                  If you would downgrade Jesus who third City player you would have?

                    I'm on Mahrez at the moment. Not absolutely nailed down my plans but I think I'm going for Mahrez, KdB and Aguero as opposed to Ederson with KdB and Aguero.

                    Samatta for Jesus then ? Use MITB to upgrade Douglas Luiz, Tanganga, Ramsdale

                You could easily bench Ramsdale Tanganga amd Douglas Luiz to save your BB

                  Yea I could but don't think there will be better week for BB than this

                I don't believe the Villa dgw players are going to be able to score heavily enough to beat single game week players

                A as wouldn't rely on Ozil

                  Thanks guys.

                  I think that’s what I’m leaning towards too. Hoping Tammy cab find his early season form

                8 months, 16 days ago

                So it's between:

                Trent, Pepe, Tammy
                Alonso, Ozil, Jimmy

                I don't like either arsenal mid, would prefer a city mid but it's a roulette. Probably go for Pepe just because Ozil hasn't featured a whole lot, though Jimmy over Tammy.

                Trent has to stay, although Alonso is almost a must for this weej

              How's this BB team?

              Leno Henderson
              TAA Baldock Egan Doherty Laporte
              KDB grealish McGinn Willian saka

              How about this for a BB team?

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

              Will WC in GW31+

                Saka and McGinn are risky for me. If possible TAA to someone cheaper and upgrade McGinn to Grealish.

                  He's got Grealish.

                Almost exactly the same at the moment, so I'm biased but I think your team looks strong!

                I've got Mahrez, Mount and Cantwell instead of Sterling, McGinn and Saka.

                I could upgrade Basham to Lundstram and his two goals, albeit in a friendly, the other day are tempting me.

                I'll pretend not to notice how you have 1.8m more to spend that I do.

              Anyone else with their WC left had a look at how they might use it in GW31+?

              Doing so earlier has pretty much eliminated any doubts I had about the unlimited transfers/30+ BB strategy. Definitely going for it now.

              Plans could go out of the window after the first GW back, but it felt good to try and plan ahead. Looks like there could be some exciting options.

                • 6 Years
                8 months, 16 days ago

                Trent, Maguire, Alonso, SHU defender
                Bruno, Mount, Grealish, Salah/Mane
                Rashford, and 2 of Vardy, Kane, Deeney, Pukki, Abraham

                  Nice! Latest plan I had was:

                  Pope (and not decided if I need a playing second GK yet)
                  Trent, Doherty, Maguire, Lascelles, Soyuncu
                  Salah, KdB, Martial, Mount/Barnes, Cantwell
                  Rashford, Jimi then Abraham or Jota, or maybe Vardy, which would require further tinkering.

                The dgwers have decent games in GW31+, bar SHU, so will probably use my WC in GW32+.

                    Careful you may be priced out by GW32

                      Also a good point, thanks. As things stand, I'll be pressing the WC button as soon as I can after the GW30+ deadline passes.
