Scoutcast Episode 340 –Premium forwards on the radar?

Premium forwards are back on the menu for our Scoutcast trio as Joe, Andy and Az look ahead to Gameweek 37+ and try to pick some differentials to help Fantasy Premier League managers make a late push for mini-league glory.

While some of their tips are certainly bargains, they think this could be the week to turn to some forgotten pricier options, who have been sold by many in recent weeks.

Up top, Spurs hitman Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Arsenal talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) look primed for investment with kind fixtures for the run-in.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s main men are under scrutiny. The underlying statistics point to a Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) haul on the horizon. But are the Premier League champions still motivated?

Recorded ahead of Thursday’s matches, all three of our Scoutcast regulars are full of hope after an average-to-bad Gameweek 36+ so far. To describe Joe’s Bench Boost this time around as laughable barely does this sorry use of a chip justice.

Our crew take a look at clean sheets for the final two matches, while Andy takes his turn to name his favourite differential for the run-in and also reveals an exciting membership offer.

The show finishes off as usual with their transfer and captaincy plans for Gameweek 37+. There are certainly plenty of differentials and forgotten premium picks to consider.

      Yeah, final adjustments to be made after the pressers in GW38 (possibly with a little last-minute gaze at @FPL_Rockstar).

      My main rival will play his BB that week for sure.

    Who do people think are the top 3 players to own this week? Trying to nail down my last free transfer before free hit next week.

    I'm looking for 3 names of those who you think will have the biggest hauls this week.

    Thanks in advance. Getting to squeaky but time now!

            Have similar issues. Considering a choice of wood, tarkowski, son, kane and auba as a one week punt before FH next week

            1. Malkmus
              • 9 Years
              27 days, 17 hours ago

              Ta. Used FH last gw, which didn't go great, should've left it for 38...

          Help please, Got 1FT and 0.1mn ITB. What should I do if I want to take BIG risks to close ML gap.
          DDG (Martin)
          VVD, Saiss, Holgate (Kiko, Lascelles)
          Kdb, Willian, MANE, Bruno (triple cap) (SAKA)
          Kane, GREENWOOD, Jesus

          Got 1FT and 0.1mn ITB. What should I do? Any other suggestions are welcome

          A) Lascelles, Mane & Jesus --> Tarkowski, Dilva/Son & Auba/Ings for - 8 hit
          B) DDG, Mane & Jesus --> Martinez, Dilva/Sterling/Martial & Auba/Ings for -8 hit

          1. linkafu
              27 days, 16 hours ago

              Holgate out no?

            • Davemc23
              • 9 Years
              27 days, 16 hours ago

              What is the points difference? I wouldn't sacrifice Jesus as he has Watford and Norwich last 2. I'm actually looking to get him in. Post your rival's ream and tell us the points difference

          2. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            27 days, 16 hours ago

            My bench is gonna be:

            Martinez, Nketiah, Bardsley Lamptey

            BB in 37:
            for avl, avl, nor, NEW

            or in 38:
            for WAT WAT BHA bur

            1. linkafu
                27 days, 16 hours ago

                37

              • El Fenomeno R9
                • 4 Years
                27 days, 16 hours ago

                Think 37,Nketiah better chance to play and defenders with better fixtures

            2. linkafu
                27 days, 16 hours ago

                Is Hokgate Out for rest of season?

                1. jamiejoe
                  • 4 Years
                  27 days, 16 hours ago

                  Just the next 2 matches i heard.

              • Mr. Mystic
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                27 days, 16 hours ago

                1FT Mane->Sterling?
                (Rival is 20 points behind and has Sterling so a no brainer?)

                1. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  27 days, 16 hours ago

                  To me yeah.

                2. linkafu
                    27 days, 16 hours ago

                    Don't.

                    1. linkafu
                        27 days, 16 hours ago

                        Too close for me

                        1. Mr. Mystic
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          • 9 Years
                          27 days, 16 hours ago

                          Too close in what context?

                          1. linkafu
                              27 days, 16 hours ago

                              Mane is almost sure to play both game with newcastle in last. Can easily see him get good scores. so If your rivals have Sterling (risk of pep roulette even if I don't think) you could do better with Mane. Don't underestimate Liverpool!

                              1. Mr. Mystic
                                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                                • 9 Years
                                27 days, 16 hours ago

                                True, but by having Sterling will reduce the risk if he is to haul? And stop them catching me

                                1. Bond 007
                                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                                  • 9 Years
                                  27 days, 16 hours ago

                                  Take Sterling for the final GW only.

                                  1. Mr. Mystic
                                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                                    • 9 Years
                                    27 days, 16 hours ago

                                    I have FH do intend to bring him in regardless.

                                2. Davemc23
                                  • 9 Years
                                  27 days, 16 hours ago

                                  Sound logic. If all you're worried about us preserving your lead then get him

                                  1. Mr. Mystic
                                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                                    • 9 Years
                                    27 days, 16 hours ago

                                    Cheers, it was hit hat-trick that the other week which closed the gap from about 60-20points! So seems safe to do so.

                      • El Fenomeno R9
                        • 4 Years
                        27 days, 16 hours ago

                        Would be interesting if your rival goes Sterling > Mane 🙂

                        1. Mr. Mystic
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          • 9 Years
                          27 days, 16 hours ago

                          Now THAT would be interesting , but I doubt it.

                      27 days, 16 hours ago

                      My defence has been decimated will any of Holgate, Kiko or Lascelles play this week?

                      If not, who to bring in to replace?

                      1. Davemc23
                        • 9 Years
                        27 days, 16 hours ago

                        I'd say kiko will play but he's up against city so could end up on minus points

                        1. Davemc23
                          • 9 Years
                          27 days, 16 hours ago

                          how much itb? Burnley def viable?

                          Never can get Mahrez at the right time
                          Thinking of him over the two games as cheaper than sterling who I can’t get without a hit.
                          Any projections of minutes or pts
                          At a guess ?

                          Rashford way down on the 37 poll. the past 2 games hes looked the best player!

                          Does anyone have a FH team template for GW37+? I own neither Martial nor Sterling and I can't get them without a -8.
