    This is not a FH team but which 4 would prefer to complete lineup ( presently on Sterling KDB Foden Vardy)- I like B but Foden clearly a risk for cameo for D Silva late on and cannot afford D Silva in that set up

    A Mané Sterling D Silva Ings
    B Salah KDB Foden Kane
    C Sterling Mahrez D Silva Kane

    Pope
    TAA Aurier Doherty
    Bruno Martial **** **** ****
    Woods ****

      It’s between A and B and it’s very tight. Salah is chasing, Sterling if ahead.

        Sorry misread Mahrez in C, you’d expect all 3 of those start but 5 mods from 2 teams could be asking for trouble.

      First I'll try Tarot cards, then a Ouija board if that fails.

        I'm a little sceptical of the Ouija boards but let me know what the Tarot cards say!

    No FT, £0 ITB. ML Leader 12 Ahead with 7 of my first XI and out of chips, I’m playing BB.

    Pope (Martinez)
    Tark Digne Maguire (Saiss Aurier)
    Bruno Sterling(c) KDB Son Pulisic
    Ings Jimi Greenwood

    Am I good to go or would you do something I’m missing for this last week?

    Got a £50 bet with the guy and we are both sweating ha

    1. jason_ni
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I think you look good to go, maybe Aurier for Maguire, but knowing him, this will be week he finally directs a header goalward!

      1. jason_ni
        • 4 Years

        whoops - missed the BB part!

  5. Tomerick

    What do we think will have a bigger impact on City points on Sunday?

    A) Dilva’s last game.
    B) Sterling chasing the golden boot.

    1. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A

    2. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      B

    3. Ady87
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A, can see him getting given a pen. Sterling is 4 off Vardy just to match him and that’s before Vardy plays as well.

    4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A - guarantees him a start - we don't anything else beyond that

      Dilva already has 18 attacking returns in ~20 premier league starts this season - home to Norwich should be profitable

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I agree to your post to a certain extent. Players like Ings and Sterling who are vying for the GB and not normally on pens, have been given pens to increase their goal tally therefore increase their potential of scoring more FPL points.

        1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          They did both miss their penalties however haha

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 2 days ago

            that is why they are not usually the designated pen taker haha

        2. Tomerick
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Yes that was what I was getting at really. I agree that players are always hungry to score but personally it would just add to the motivation to be at the top and in grasp of the boot. It doesn’t mean you wouldn’t normally be trying anyway.

          The bigger impact that I was thinking of was who would be given a set piece like FKs and Pens.

  6. jason_ni
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Can anyone beat 142 points in 6 gameweeks for captain picks?

    ML leader has romped to 100 point lead, and has nailed his capt pick every week.

    Martial is his pick for tonight!

    1. Ady87
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      My rivals pick is Martial tonight so I didn’t want to hear this.

      • 5 Years

      I'm on 130, Auba against SOU was my only fail... Salah tonite so I hope for some big points, my main 3 rivals with Bruno, Martial TC and Sterling. No pressure 😉

  7. pablo discobar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Original free hit before Arsenal became a big problem

    GK Pope
    DEF TAA, Tierney* Pieters
    MID Salah, Bruno, Sterling Silva(c), Antonio*
    FWD Auba*, Kane

    Subs (Martin), Niketeh*, Williams Lamptey

    New Plan

    GK Pope
    DEF TAA Aurier*, Pieters
    MID Salah, Bruno, Sterling(c) Silva, KDB*
    FWD Ings*, Kane

    Subs (Martin), Greenwood*, Williams, Lamptey

    Is the new plan best way to go? Both have 0 left in bank.

    Thanks

  8. cravencottage
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Some advice please:

    Which makes most sense:

    A) Mane > Sterling
    B) KDB > Sterling (-4)
    C) Neither

    1. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years

      A

    2. BOATIES FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      i dont like A at all myself

  9. BBC_TF
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    With one FT and running from behind in y mini leagues, should it be:

    Vardy -> Kane
    or
    Pulisic -> D Silva (I have Ster/KDB)

    1. LE CHARO
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Vardy > Kane

  10. Vertigo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    a) Antonio in a 3-5-2

    b) Ings in a 3-4-3

    Who clinches it?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year

      343

    2. EmreCan Hustle

    3. LE CHARO

      Ings

  11. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Whos more likely to keep a CS?

    Spurs or Liverpool?

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Liverpool

      1. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        So I should go Gomez over Aurier....

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Not a fan of Gomez. I assumed you meant one of the other three when you said Liverpool.
          In terms of CS Liverpool still above Spurs, but Aurier offers more than just a 6.

    2. Dybala10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Both.

  12. EmreCan Hustle
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    On FH.

    Best captain?

    A) Auba
    B) Sterling
    C) Kane
    D) Dilva
    E) Salah
    F) Ings

    Thanks.

    3. Jose

      For those without a free hit and without Sterling, what do you guys think of sideways moves for owners of KDB, Foden and Jesus for example?

      Can you talk about Cokey's stat below please, and also just the potential misreading of OR generally

      https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/comment/22178620

      I've seen a few people lamenting the fact that they're not able to "finish in the top 10k consistently like the experts" - whereas in reality its extremely difficult to find ANYONE who finishes in the Top 10k "consistently" (maybe its the definition of "consistently" that's the problem??)

      Take some of the supermen FPL - Magnus Carlsson, Mark Sutherns, Jay Egersdorff, FPL General for example

      - Lots of buzz about Magnus, and he's having a dream season, but prior to this year, 3 of his other 4 seasons were outside the top 10k (4 of 5 if you count that first year but its probably not fair)

      - Mark, who we all know, love & acknowledge as one of THE greatest minds to ever play the game - is probably looking at a third season in the last 5 outside the top 10k - next season would be a 4th season in 6 outside the top10k if it followed this year's pattern etc

      - Jay had a TERRIBLE season last year - absolutely disastrous foray into professional punditry

      - FPL general had a tough year of it too

      And make no mistake - these guys are absolute Gods of FPL

      As I've said before, if there was an FPL Mount Olympus they'd be right up there wth Zeus, Thor & Kratos they are that good 🙂 But you can see even they have more than enough bad times to go with the good

      So in a rather long winded and rambling kind of way - the question would probably be - is it important now more than ever for people not to beat themselves up by aspiring to some fictional embodiment of FPL greatness that in reality just doesn't exist??

      It might help with some perspective & alleviate a lot of the recent trend towards people experiencing these supposed massive FPL-related lows when they get a bit of bad luck or a bad GW

          Fixed 🙂

        2 months, 2 days ago

        Can you hold fire on that until next week's round up scoutcast. The show this week is looking at preparing people for GWK 38....but the next one will be full of the usual handwringing, its all bad luck/skill, etc.

        In terms of consistency I think that's mostly referred to as those who have finished high up a number of times, even with the odd blip.

        (eg 7 top 10K out of 11 seasons 😉 )

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Of course - it's not a particularly time sensitive issue anyways, and in fairness, it maybe doesn't even need to be discussed as its just a lot of common sense - but good to acknowledge it now & again i suppose!

          Oh, and 7 top 10ks in 11 seasons is as good as it gets - you're up there on Mount Olympus as well Joe, don't worry 🙂

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            And the other thing is that "so many more people play the game now" and "people are so much more informed now becuase of twitter"

            For my money - neither of those are anywhere near as big a factor as the chips

            The introduction of the chips just overnight jacked up the variance in a season to levels that were previously unheard-of

            Its not that anyone who gets a good rank in the last 3-4 seasons (since chip intro-gate) is just lucky - but rather a SIGNIFICANTLY higher proportion of good ranks are now generated by the luck of a chip in a gameweek rather than good old fashioned steady hand on the tiller throughout a season

      Best low ownership players to bring in if chasing ?

    6. Dybala10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Best goalkeeper picks on FH? Is it simply one of Martinez or Pope?

    7. asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Since we always talk about goal fests on the last day, which defences are we targeting?

      Burnley for Pope?
      A few considering city albeit at the detriment to attack
      Liverpool with potential hangover from tonight?
      Spurs, who have been pretty flakey despite some favourable results?
      Arsenal playing a villa side that doesn’t want to lose?

    8. internal error
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Rashford or Martial on a FH?

    9. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Is it worth taking a hit or two for GW38 to target high ceiling players like Salah, Mane, Kane, City attackers etc?

    10. Vertigo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Lloris, Thomas, Trézéguet, Lacazette... Who are the form differentials people are overlooking this week?

    11. ZimZalabim
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      1. Best trio from City ?

      2. Is it worth getting a def or ederson over a third attacker ?

      3. Is David Silva an emotional pick ? and does him starting make Kdb a worse option in open play and will kdb give up set pieces for Silva ?

      4. Kane vs Auba ?

      5. Martial vs Bruno vs Rashford ? Best united pick on free hit ? Is a double up worth it with midfield slots limited

      6. Best differentials for chasing in mini leagues ?

    12. JogaBonitoDanceParty
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      With so many active managers using FH this week, which transfer targets for the rest of us represent the best shields against their shifty weapon? Thanks.

    13. gwitbrock
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Any early shouts for either young or promoted players to watch for next season? Foden and greenwood of course look like great options if they can stay cheap, but Pereira at West Brom for example looks good if they make it up. Mitrovic maybe if Fulham can sneak in? Bamford a bit of a trap? 😉

    14. FPL Egregious

      Best TC option for gw38+

      Great work from all involved, enjoy GW38 and take care.

      After ManUtd's tragic performance against WestHam do you think it's worth to sell their assets?Esepcially when there are so many descent options.(Mainly midfielders).

      Who is the best FH non-premium striker selection for GW38 to partner Kane (or Auba) for those of us spending the rest of our budget on a packed midfield? Wood; Giroud; Ings; Greenwood?

      Over the last 2 seasons the top 6 have underperformed on the final day. But GW38 does see more goals, so who should we be looking to for those "unexpected" hauls.

      2018-19 goals per game:
      Season Average - 2.84
      GW38 Average - 3.6
      GW38 Top 6 Average - 1.83

      2017-18 goals per game:
      Season Average - 2.69
      GW38 Average - 3.1
      GW38 Top 6 Average - 2

      What are some tips for people to make one final push up the ranks?

      Say from 20k to top 10k, assuming no ML worries. Both in the case of free-hitters and non-free-hitters.

      Kane or Stirling ?

      Salah and Jesus to Kane and David Silva

      or

      Salah To Stirling ?

      Leading mini league by 8pts and he has Kane

    Surprised with the lack of Antonio in FH teams.

    1. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Can't have 'em all. Salah/Mane/Mahrez/Dilva/KDB/Sterling/Bruno/Martial all warrant inclusion.

    2. Reedy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Not on a FH but he'll probably be my last transfer in, for Pulisic (assuming no injuries tonight).

      Thing is, the game could have a different flavour now that Villa have their destiny in their own hands. I hope Antonio is still the good pick I think he is!

    3. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Villa are solid and have reason to play for a draw.

    4. Gooner Kebab
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Will probably mean Nketiah as one of the front 3

    5. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      It's between Antonio and Ings for me

    6. Dybala10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Meh, rather Ings and plus Villa not being down/West Ham being in the scrap doesn't really help.

    7. Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I think if you were looking for a midfielder punt for the final GW, Trezeguet is a better option than Antonio.

      West Ham are guaranteed safety, Villa will fight for it. Also he is on form and has haul potential. And he's nearly 2m cheaper so "enables" the big hitters up top

  15. Squib
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Clawed my way to first spot in cash ML and made up a 50+ point difference in 1st week after restart but since then it has gone wayward. And now sit 5th.
    60 points behind top.
    30 points off second but 3rd to 6th are all close.

    Need advise please

    2 FT

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Season of the casual. Ive been saying it all season, to much abuse on here (probably from those people who are having their first 10k/100k season)

      1. JONALDINHO
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        There’s more people this year meaning a higher rank is harder. More and more on websites too meaning takes more luck to finish higher

      2. Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        In all fairness, if you are on here then you can hardly be called a casual

    4. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      For context, that's about identical to last season.

      1. Rotation's Alter Ego
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        +2.4% change of new top 10k-ers on last season

    5. Zilla

      How that compares to previous seasons?

    6. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Cheers, really interesting.

      I completely disagree with the post above about it being the season of the casual.

      In the past, I could always pretty much guarantee I'd rise over the final 10-15 weeks, as people's luck ran out and I avoided obvious mistakes. This year, I've been around the top 10k all season and cannot make any progress. The standard is much higher than the past as people make fewer rookie errors.

      1. Pegboy
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        For context, this will hopefully be my 5th top 10k finish. Definitely the hardest season so far, and I had a ton of luck early on.

      2. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        agree. also the definition of 'casual' is inappropriate. The average standard of folks in my leagues, even if they aren't as into the twitter/analysis side, has vastly increased, due to the amount of FPL content on FPL's own site, and the way it is much more mainstream now.

    7. Concrete
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Farcical end giving a 3rd wildcard and players burning chips getting lucky with no DGWs that most planned for

      Been half bothered since the restart

    8. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I consider myself very lucky that I managed to finish in the Top 10k for 3 consecutive seasons before this one.
      It's definitely not an easy task and I've learnt that the hard way this season. Need a lot of luck to consistently get those top 10k ranks every season.

    9. Dybala10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      My key competitors are exactly the same. Usually 1m+ every season but this year they've been in and around 20-100k all season.

      Maybe it's all the info around the game now?

    10. Mingo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      3rd full season playing and I've not finished in the top 100k before. Currently sat around 4k.

  17. Strchld
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Today going to be a big day, I have Mane and Bruno C when my rivals has Martial and Salah C. Everyone inside 10points margin and have FH for last GW38.

  18. fridge
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    My cash league rival is currently 20 points ahead. We have the same players playing tonight except I have Salah and Martial extra. I should be within touching distance going in to the final GW right?

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Salah and Martial will put you ahead after tonight.

      1. fridge

        Hope you are right mate!

        1. FOO FIGHTER

          Need Salah and Martial to go wild and you are in the lead bro...

          I have Salah(c) TAA Martial Fernandes and Greenwood left so hoping for points galore!

    3. JustPark

      Likely.

  20. _sidney_will

    Thoughts on FH Draft?

    Martinez

    Robertson Pieters Branthwaite (Diop, Williams)

    Salah Sterling KDB D.Silva Martial

    Kane Wood (Nketiah)

    1. JONALDINHO
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      KDB to a nailed Mahrez

      1. cravencottage
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Agree with this

      2. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        no way Mahrez is "nailed" for that game. He was garbage when he came on last

      3. _sidney_will
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        KDB one assist away from the record, surely he'll start?

    2. Gooner Kebab
      • 8 Years

      Can you push for Ings or do you just prefer Woody?

    1. Mingo

      I don't think they've even officially agreed when the next season will start.

    A or B?

    1. JustPark

      2 months, 2 days ago

      A

    2. Gooner Kebab
      • 8 Years

      B and find a spot for BUR def?

      1. Respect My Authoritah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Yeah got one in there already

  23. TheDragon
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Which is better for GW38:

    A) Aurier, Mahrez, Kane
    B) TAA, KDB, Greenwood

    1. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      B for me

    2. JustPark
      • 4 Years

      A.

    3. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

    4. Gooner Kebab
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A

  24. King Kohli
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Can I get away with this team against all the FH teams?

    Pope
    TAA Stephens/Diop Long
    Salah Raz Bruno Mahrez Dilva
    Rashford Greenwood

    1. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Definitely. I don't see too many FH players who could hurt you that much.

    2. Gooner Kebab
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Kane/Auba

    3. LE CHARO
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Yes, that's a very good team. I don't think all the popular FH players will perform as well as expected. If you nail your captaincy, you should be alright

  25. Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Slight variation of my question

    A) Jesus and Auba (no hit)
    B) Sterling and Wood (-4)

    1. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      B for me

      B

  26. cravencottage

    Pulisic to Dilva? Yes or No

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years

      Yes

    2. Reedy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      For me it's Yes ...and No. I really want to bring him in, but I already have three City. Stupid Ederson.

    Salah Sterling KDB Bruno Silva
    Kane Ings

    1. Gooner Kebab

      Probably closest to my FH team (I've Martial)

  29. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Who will punish Free Hitters the most? My money is on Danny Ings.

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      KDB of course

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Free Hitters dont have KDB?

        1. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Lots won’t

          Him and TAA will be the ones people leave out if tight on funds

    2. King Kohli
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Rashford

    3. Gooner Kebab
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Antonio and the City mid they didnt choose 🙂

    4. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Bruno

  30. TheDragon
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Which is better for GW38:

    A) Mahrez, Ings
    B) KDB, Greenwood/ Wood
