Scoutcast Episode 334 – FPL Gameweek 31+ Wildcard Options

Whether you have an abundance of Fantasy Premier League chips or none remaining, this latest episode of the Scoutcast has got you covered.

Joe is joined by Lateriser and Andy to look ahead to Gameweek 31+ and beyond, with a close eye on chip strategy.

Lateriser is among the many FPL managers to take advantage of unlimited transfers in Gameweek 30+ and use their Bench Boost chip. With his Wildcard now in play, he reveals the players in his thinking and how best to navigate the weeks ahead.

Meanwhile, Joe only has a Bench Boost to fall back on. Our trio looks at the best Gameweeks to consider using not only this chip, but other remaining chips too.

Andy has used all his chips but after tinkering during lockdown with his team, he feels he is in good shape to match his chip-happy rivals.

Among the issues they discuss are what to do with Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m), who blanked in his last two run-outs but has two good fixtures ahead and enticing underlying stats too.

Sticking with the Gunners, there are replacement goalkeepers to mull over, after Bernd Leno (£5.0m) suffered a nasty knock against Brighton at the weekend.

The best Liverpool assets, whether Manchester City can be swerved temporarily and the unlikely appeal of Newcastle United are also in the mix.

In this packed 75-minute show, the Scoutcasters also find time to look at the best clean sheet prospects. Lateriser takes his turn to pick a differential and there are Gameweek 31+ squads to reveal.

Who will they captain and which players can help propel them up the rankings?

  7. ChipsnGravy

    1. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 17 hours ago

      i have a feeling that cs for Burnley is better when up against a fellow mid table table team, that is 0-0 written all over it. Saka better game in 32, Boly slightly better in 31 and McCarthy i have no clue on which game is best-). Therefore 32 for me. I would preferably play Boly in 31 if not bench boosting.

  9. UpAndAway

    Play Grealish or Lascelles?

    1. Fibonacci
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 16 hours ago

      Grealish has the higher upside.

  10. Fibonacci
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 16 hours ago

    OUT: Mane + Hanley
    IN: Son + Doherty for a -4.

    Yeah or nay?

    PS: I have Salah and TAA. I am behind my mini-league rival by 1 point atm. I could still do the move for free after tonight's deadline.

  11. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 16 hours ago

    Martial or Richarlison on a FH?

    Have DCL and Fernandes

  12. Wetdream
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Soundcloud option up yet for scoutcast ?

  13. juicewagz
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 16 hours ago

    Thoughts on this team? Trying to overtake my friend in mini league so have punted on double Wolves, double Newcastle defence, and Alli instead of Son.

    Dubravka,

    TAA, Doherty, Saiss, Lascelles

    Mane, KDB, Alli

    Jimi, Rashford, DCL

    Bench: Martinez, Aurier, Saka, Hayden.

  14. Hana
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Did anyone else have a shocker last GW? My pre free transfers team would have scored more points than my bench boost team.

    WC31+...GTG? Anything you'd change? Thanks :

    Patricio
    TAA / Doherty / Lascelles
    Mane / KDB / Son / Bruno
    Jimenez / Rashford / DCL
