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 is this for a BB team this week:

    Leno McCarthy
    TAA Doherty Stevens McConnell Lascelles
    KDB (c) Grealish Mane Fleck Sarr
    Auba (vc) DCL Jota

    No WC remaining but going with 7 DGW players this week. Want to try and make it as future-proof as possible.

    Any obvious changes?

    Cheers!

      Not keen on McCarthy away to Norwich, is your forth defender O'Connell after he's been to McDonalds ?

      1. Smokey_Lowkey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Haha yes, O'Connell, my bad.

        McCarthy I have value tied up in, and not many cheap GKs about with any decent fixtures from what I can see!

      If future-proofing, what's your plan for Utd players given their fixtures from GW31 onwards?

      1. Smokey_Lowkey

        8 months, 23 days ago

        I have my eye keenly on Fernandes. I plan to do Mane - > Son and KDB - > Fernandes within the next couple weeks. Please tell me if that is lunacy...

    Thoughts on this BB team? 

    Leno | Reina
    Laporte | TAA | O'Connell | Stevens | Boly
    KDB | Grealish | Traore | McGinn | Fleck
    Aguero | Auba | Lacazette

    WC in GW31+

        Its a different one from what everyone else seems to be doing, could be worth the risk?!

      Anyone going without Auba?

        8 months, 23 days ago

        I currently am as I think a bench boost with the likes of Doherty and Alonso and a more powerful 15 could pay off.

        A few variables to consider, such as the suggestion as the away games being less difficult and City have been porous

      VFPL, in case anyone is still interested.

      First off, props to Ragabolly for fulfilling our fantasy fix whilst FPL was in suspension. This was much appreciated.

      Survival Sunday.

      So, it all boils down to this: Who goes down with The Villa tonight?

      2 of these 4 are going to be relegated:

      West Ham (bur) : 31 pts (-36 GD)
      Bournemouth (wat) : 33 pts (-31 GD)
      Newcastle (che) : 33 pts (-29 GD)
      Brighton (SHU) : 34 pts (-23 GD)

      West Ham look doomed to me and I have a sneaky feeling Bournemouth will beat Watford and pull off the great escape tonight.

      Brighton should get a point at home, so it looks like Newcastle will be joining Villa and West Ham in the virtual Championship next season.

      Who do you guys think will get relegated this evening?

        8 months, 23 days ago

        On form, feels like Bournemouth will make it. They've been banging them in.

        All depends on which Sheffield United turn up!

        8 months, 23 days ago

        The three who get relegated from the real FPL, surely the next time Ragabolly runs VFPL it will have the 20 teams that are in that, so who gets relegated today is immaterial. Sorry Norwich.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Yes, but just work with it for today.

            West Ham and Bournemouth, has Ragabolly mentioned anything about motivation to stay up being written into FPL ? I trying to decide whether to play Lescelles or switch to Burn for a hit.

            1. Nomar
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              8 months, 23 days ago

              Yes, it’s been written into the scripts.

              Lascalles on my bench but playing BB tonight. Whenever I play him he does nothing, and has a tough matchup against free scoring Chelsea.

      Any Chelsea fans here? What do you think about RLC (6.2)? Do you think he will start vs Villa?

      Is this squad good enough to keep for 31 and allow me to FH in 30?

                For a FH It looks pretty damn good.

              • 5 Years
              8 months, 23 days ago

              Do you think Laporte will start both games?

              1. Gringo Kid
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                8 months, 23 days ago

                No, Pep will rotate big time

                1. HamezMace
                  • 6 Years
                  8 months, 23 days ago

                  But City play Wednesday then not again until Monday, that’s a decent amount of time.

                  And they only have three centre backs, so quite possible one of them starts twice, don’t ask me which though.

                  1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
                    • 10 Years
                    8 months, 23 days ago

                    That's true but the issue is they have 2 other big games coming up in quick succession

                    1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
                      • 10 Years
                      8 months, 23 days ago

                      or at least the chelsea game

                      1. HamezMace
                        • 6 Years
                        8 months, 23 days ago

                        I just think the position of centre back is probably the safest, outside of the keeper, and although it’s a DGW.
                        If we looked at the timescale as it were a SGW playing on a Sunday, and then the following Friday, I think we’d be less panicked about the rotation.

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    8 months, 23 days ago

                    Laporte, Otamendi, Stones, Fernandinho, Garcia...

                    It's Pep, who knows what will happen 🙂

                    1. HamezMace
                      • 6 Years
                      8 months, 23 days ago

                      Well I’m talking about the three who would be considered natural centre backs, but yes Fernandinho has played there as cover.

                      But yes, it’s Pep, so could play Foden and B.Silva for banter.

                      1. Vazza
                          8 months, 23 days ago

                          For banter? Haha

                          1. HamezMace
                            • 6 Years
                            8 months, 23 days ago

                            Pep is a historic selection troll, to the point I’m convinced he is aware of FPL rules and enjoys signing on to FFS at the end of a City game to read through our rage comments.

                            1. Vazza
                                8 months, 23 days ago

                                I wouldn’t be surprised if that was indeed the case

                  3. Pumpy Pro
                    • 11 Years
                    8 months, 23 days ago

                    I dont think any city player is 100% certain of starting both games bar Ederson. And that includes KDB

                    1. mixology
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 8 Years
                      8 months, 23 days ago

                      agree but I'm actually less concerned with rotation with the 5 sub rule. I'd like to think attackers will see a 60 minute run-out and then perhaps a 20-30 minute one in the next game as well. Still equals 90 minutes, but doesn't put all your eggs in one basket. We've seen players like Mahrez and (even Jesus) sub into a game and put up nice scores. I'm hoping for the best.

                      1. Pumpy Pro
                        • 11 Years
                        8 months, 23 days ago

                        It's Pep. I wouldn't really try and second guess. It only ends in tears 😆

                        1. mixology
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          • 8 Years
                          8 months, 23 days ago

                          very true

                  4. mixology
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years
                    8 months, 23 days ago

                    I wouldn't be confident of him starting both. However, it's possible that he does but then is subbed off to preserve him at say the 58th minute mark with City up 2 or 3 nil.

                    1. HamezMace
                      • 6 Years
                      8 months, 23 days ago

                      Make it the 61st minute please.

                      • 5 Years
                      8 months, 23 days ago

                      mmm this is true. They've been pretty hapless without him defensively and the gap suggests he should start two games on the trot

                2. LikeItLoveIt
                  • 2 Years
                  8 months, 23 days ago

                  A - Mahrez & Jimi
                  Or
                  B - Sterling & Netiah and lose .5m on Jimi

                  ??

                    Jimi could still score well. Would you be able to get him back having lost 0.5 and still have a decent GW32 team?

                    1. LikeItLoveIt
                      • 2 Years

                      I'm wildcarding 31 so could possibly. Jus feels bad losing that much value on him. Especially with the fixtures I'd want him back

                    - Get a chance to go all out on Leicester assets in GW31 (don't own any now), 3 Liverpool, Doherty, maybe Kane
                    - Comes out with a better team from GW32
                    - Different to most people (could prove good)

                    Disadvantages:

                    - Less DGW players, 2 sheff utd defenders instead of 3, no Arsenal. 2 City attacker and Laporte instead of 3 attackers
                    - Aguero TC risk with minutes
                    - Uses 1 extra chip than I would do if FHing in 30

                    Which option for BB?

                    A) Fleck + Leno (2xSHU defence)
                    B) Cantwell + Henderson (3xSHU defence)

                    What do you guys and girls think is a better choice?

                    Cantwell and Lundstram
                    or
                    Boly and Fleck

                    Wont have extreme point difference but pretty set on the rest of my team so yea.

                      It's a difficult one. Potential wise it's cantwell and Lundstram but it depends on Lundstram minutes. If Lundstram doesn't start wed and we get news then definitely b

                    There appears to have been a shift towards FH on here recently. What chip are you now planning to use in GW30+ ?

                    A) BB
                    B) FH
                    C) TC

                    John Stones is apparently back, could be a cheap option as an alternative to Laporte and Ederson? As a CB he is less likely to be rotated as long as he is not injured?

                      Man City literally have a nailed on player in goal for 0.7m more, so nah no point going near the defence. If I were to have a lil punt, it would be Benjamin Mendy.

                      Hard to say... maybe later in the season if you sell kun for someone like rashford and spread the funds to the bench?

                      Both Pepe and Ozil is ballsy.

                      No to Target, Yes to Jimenz instead of Ozil, otherwise seems solid

                    FH GW30+ so for this week only:

                    A) 343 with Mount
                    or
                    B) 433 with Alonso
                    ..?

                    Looks like a lot of terms will be fairly similar. I guess the big choice is whether to go with Auba, Aguero, KDB and Sterling or to drop one and spread the wealth bit.. What do you guys think?

                      I’m going for all four personally.

                        same and at the same time I can’t complain about the others 🙂

                          Yeah same mate.
                          Quite happy with my team.

                        Yeh I think it is worth it also, will lose a bit of value in the likes of TAA to do it though..

                      On free hit I would have all 4, without its probably a choice of 2 for me, KDB plus a striker

                      I’m going for all bar Sterling. Went for Pépé to get 12DGW players.

                    Considering going without Aubameyang, getting Sterling in his place, thoughts?

                    1. Ser Davos

                      8 months, 23 days ago

                      Outside of Fleck, Sarr and Grealish I think cheap mids are difficult to find whilst there's quite a few potential cheaper strikers.

                        Yeah. Sterling + Pukki/Tammy etc better than Auba + whatever mid at that price.

                        1. The Red Devil
                          • 5 Years
                          8 months, 23 days ago

                          Yes, looking at something like that, no real budget options in midfield

                    2. HMFC
                      • 3 Years
                      8 months, 23 days ago

                      I think Auba will score at least one. Feel like Sterling could go big though, would hate to miss out..

                      1. The Red Devil
                        • 5 Years
                        8 months, 23 days ago

                        Can get all 4 but cheapens out my defence completely

                      8 months, 23 days ago

                      Auba more likely to play both, right?

                      1. The Red Devil
                        • 5 Years
                        8 months, 23 days ago

                        Yes, but one game against city, which I'm not really counting tbh

                      If money was no issue, who would be your ultimate XI going into GW30+ ?

                        i have my ultimate 11 above, money was no issue

                            8 months, 23 days ago

                            How many double gameweekers have you got in your first XI?

                            1. Vazza

                                I see from your team above that you are maximising the DGW players, which is fair. I’m on the same boat but some SGW players do worry me a little.

                          Torn between free hit and BB with unlimited transfers. Its the impact from 31 onwards that concerns me the most. Which combo do you prefer for 31+ onwards and why?

                          A. Leno, Egan, B, fernandes, Grealish, Norwood, Aubameyang
                          (this will be if i use unlimited transfers)

                          B. McCarthy, Robertson, Barnes, Sarr, Hayden, Aguero
                          (this is what I return to if I free hit)
