Your chance to get involved in the FFS Scout Network

Want to join the Scout Network or work for Fantasy Football Scout? Now is your chance.

We have been the leading voice in all things FPL for over 12 years, working with an engaged community of fans, addicts and pioneers to create the best content. Mark Sutherns created the site as a place for Fantasy Football fans to come together to discuss tactics, make informed captain decisions and commiserate over 59th minute substitutions, a function it fulfils even today.

We were the first to create in-depth professional editorial content and share innovative tools like Fixture Tickers; the first to provide a definitive injuries and bans list and resources like set-piece takers; the first to utilise Opta stats to take analysis to the next level and the first to build a members area to allow others to play with that data themselves.

Our leagues have dominated FPL for years, many of the top players (including four of the last seven winners) were FFS members, most were users and our tools are utilised by many of the games themselves.

But we didn’t do this alone. It has always been a team game, working with and serving the wider community. Which is why, unlike most Fantasy channels, we make so much content available for free.

It’s also why we want to hear from you now if you’d like to get involved and join the Scout Network.

Building on the work we’ve done this year with the Pro Pundits program, we want to reach even wider for the 2020/21 season, with the creation of a Scout Network that supports upcoming creators to grow and monetise their social or video channels, allows tool-makers to promote their genius to a wider audience and genuinely gives opinionated Fantasy managers everywhere a better chance to be heard.

So if you have a cool tool you’d like to share with the world, a social or video channel that you’d like to work with FFS to grow and monetise, some amazing tech skills you’d like to contribute or just some great insight that you need to share, we want to hear from you!

Just fill out this simple form with some relevant info and we’ll guarantee to check it out and come back to you.

If you have more pressing questions about Scout that aren’t related to above, please use support@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk and if you’d like to work for us jobs@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk

    Absolute madness going to rain down here minutes before the deadline. If you try make a comment you probably will have to go 2 or 3 pages back with no answers as the pages will zip by.

    Are we looking at servers crashing just before deadline tomorrow 😀

      Where's the best place to get leaked line ups? Seems like the rockstar is out

      1. FOO FIGHTER

        Scarface

    2. Bobby Digital

      I'll be refreshing the fpl scarface twitter.

      As long as fpl doesn’t crash mid last minute changes as a result of leaked lineups

        I tried it last time, not for the faint heart... Made my transfer at the 0th second left

  5. unitednations

    Hi all, thoughts on the best combo here...quite tough.

    Martinez
    XXX • Pieters • Long --- Williams simpson
    Salah • Sterling • Dilva • Mahrez • XXX
    Kane • XXX --- connolly

    A: Aurier + Antonio + Rashford
    B: Aurier + Martial + Ings
    C: Robbo + Antonio + Ings.

    1. unitednations
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I like C but going without a united attacker is a big risk imo

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      B

  6. Fletch365

    1FT - Rival is 8 pts behind and has a Free Hit
    Would you rather:

    A: Vardy > Jesus
    B: Salah & Vardy > Sterling & Kane (-4)
    C: Fernandes & Vardy > DSilva & Kane (-4)

    Pope (Martinez)
    Bardsley TAA Digne (Lund Robinson)
    KDB Foden Salah Fernandes (Barnes)
    Rash Greenwood Vardy

    1. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      With a FH, he will have both Sterling and Kane and captain one of them so B to cover that

  7. SHOOTER MCGINN
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Tarkowski or Pieters in a Burnley triple?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Pieters and use the money somewhere else...

      1. SHOOTER MCGINN
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Don't really have a need for the cash unless I take a hit. Tarkowski maybe more goal threat, but Pieters better on the assists. Probably 6 points for both realistically

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      If you have a good place to use the money then Pieters.

  8. PepTalk
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Crunch time, any advice welcome. I'm 14 pts up on second in my mini league, 25 up on third. No chips for me, they both have FH so not real opportunity to block.

    I have:

    Pope
    TAA Aurier Stephens (Boly, Egan)
    Salah, Bruno, Martial, Antonio, Foden
    Rash, Wood (DCL. Yep. DCL)

    2.8 itb / 1 FT

    Thinking one of two ways.
    A) Hope Foden plays or has a cameo off the bench and go Bruno to Sterling (c) and to fund that (0.4 short), Rash to Ings

    Or B) to get 3 city and the ones I really want, a -12 involving Bruno, Martial, Foden and Rash to Sterling (c), Silva, Mahrez and Greenwood

    Would wipe out my lead but give me, I think, the best chance to match the FH chasers.

    What ya reckon, A or B?

    Thanks all

    1. MikeBravo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Neither, just upgrade Foden to Dilva, and captain him.

    2. MikeBravo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      And have Boly as first sub...

  9. Vazza
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Hi guys, need some help please -

      Is it advisable to move Foden out for Dilva for a hit whilst having Greenwood on the bench?

      I’m already playing Bruno and Rashford in my starting XI.

    • Darthshearer
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Changed this team about 50 times. Thoughts? on a FH

      GK: Pope
      DEF: Aurier Egan Pieters
      MID: Sterling De Bruyne David Silva Salah Antonio
      FWD: Kane Greenwood

      BENCH: Nyland Williams Connolly Jagielka

      1. Runaway
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Did not like Egan, Sou is likely to score, rest is good.

        1. Darthshearer
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Could swap out for Dunk

      2. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Same as my team except I have TAA over Egan

      3. Vovhund
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        You can do better than Egan, I think

        1. Vovhund
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          What's your selling price on Egan?

          1. Darthshearer
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            if I get rid of Egan I have £5m to spend

            1. Vovhund
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Then you could do Bertrand

      4. Boywiththesoupdragontattoo
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Just swap Egan then you’re there imo. Dunk sounds like a good shout, Cresswell or even Bertrand if you’re feeling like a gamble.

      In your opinion who do you think my ML’s rival BB team with outscore my FH team by 5pts

      Rivals Team

      Pope
      TAA AWB Doherty

      Martial KDB Saka Grealish

      Kane Aubameyang Greenwood

      McCarthy Bednarek Lundstram Barnes

      My FH Team

      Martinez

      TAA Aurier Pieters

      Sterling Salah Sliva Pulisic

      Kane Greenwood Ings

      Martin Saka Walker-Peters Branthwaite

      Any ideas would be welcomed

      1. Benteke Fried Chicken
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 29 days ago

        both look strong. Your midfield massively out does his though which could be the difference

      Does the Official FPL Twitter account always extol the virtues of waiting for early team news?
      https://twitter.com/OfficialFPL/status/1287031418946805760?s=19

      1. Ginkapo FPL

        The scout is FFS

        1 month, 29 days ago

        Poor stuff. If the Premier League were aware that one of their official accounts were endorsing team leaks they'd come out and stamp down hard on FPL

    • Vpan
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      If you had to bring one player with FT who would that be?

      a) DSilva (for Martial/Bruno)

      b) Son (for Martial/Bruno)

      c) Kane (for Vardy)

      d) 2 transfers for a hit

    • Tony Martial
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Which is better?

      Bruno and Justin ➡️ KDB,Cheap Burnley defender
      Bruno and Justin ➡️ Dsilva,7.7 defender
      Foden and Justin ➡️ Dsilva,cheap Burnley defender/Garcia
      Bruno and Justin ➡️ Mahrez 6.6 defender

      Thank you.

      1. Vazza
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I like the fourth option.

          How do you enter these arrows by the way?

        Hi guys bit of advice plse?

        Tarkowski TAA Aurier

        1. Vovhund
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Second option. Not too sure about the Everton clean sheet

      3. Printing Mane
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        25 pts off top 10k. Does my FH have enough differential & potential ?

        Pope
        TAA Robbo Pieters
        Salah Sterlo Mahrez Dilva
        Kane Auba Greenwood

      4. Phlajo

        Also leading ML by 12. I have Salah, 2nd Place has Mane.. would you swap to cover? Thanks all and GL

            • 2 Years

            Many thanks. Would you pick A or B?

            1. Sasquatch Slayer
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Probably A. But that’s cos Son hates me

                • 2 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                Ha! He hates me as well for that matter. Just a little scared of getting rid of KDB especially as 2nd place has him.

      8. Hazardous1983

        Will foden start

        1. Vazza
            1 month, 29 days ago

            I wished but it’s unlikely. For that reason, I’m likely to bring in D Silva for a hit, which is annoying.

            • 5 Years

            No but off bench can still get good score

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Should I wait for early team news or do Bruno > Son now and avoid late tranfer fail/servers crashes?

          My team will be

          Pat
          TAA SlamDunk Aurier
          Mo Raz Dilva Tony Sunshine
          Jaysus GreenW

          1. Vazza
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Do you think Dunk would outscore Bertrand?

              1. FOO FIGHTER
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 29 days ago

                Yes

                1. Vazza
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    Why? Brighton are one of the worst teams to give headed chances away, while Burnley are one of the best teams to score from headed chances.

                    Also, Sheffield haven’t been scoring many goals away from home ...

                      That’s a myth.

                        1 month, 29 days ago

                        Dunk is more than capable of scoring goals. The defender table will reveal this.

                • 2 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                Who scores more Mahrez or Dilva

                1. FOO FIGHTER
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  I would rather have Dilva

                2. MTPockets
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    Thinking Mahrez assuming similar minutes, which isn't at all certain.

                    1. ㅤRising
                      • 2 Years
                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      Yea Mahrez probably gets around 60. You think Dilva gets close to 90?

                      1. MTPockets
                          1 month, 29 days ago

                          No idea. Mahrez is very rested, but then Silva's last PL game.
                          My dilemma's more Jesus vs Silva. I'm willing to bet on Mahrez

                          1. ㅤRising
                            • 2 Years
                            1 month, 29 days ago

                            Mahrez will be very tempting if he starts in the early team news. Jesus would be the first pick with Sterling if we knew he started.

                            1. MTPockets
                                1 month, 29 days ago

                                I think I agree, but probably getting swayed by Silva popularity here

                      Is it ''crime'' here to have more than one FPL accounts? 😀

                        I only have one but pretty sure many on here have more than one team.

                              I have only one but was thinkinh what it would be if I had two. If I was doing good in my second account still that wouldnt mean anything as its not my main account imo.

                          Shame if they found out and deleted your accounts.

                      I am on a bench boost, which is pretty much wasted with injuries to C. Taylor and Lascelles. I am down to four options:

                      A) Salah, Lascelles --> Sterling (C), Aurier/Pieters (-4). Allows me to get Sterling and field 13 instead of 12.

                      B) Salah, Jesus --> Sterling, Kane (-4) Hard to see losing Salah and Jesus this week, but Sterling and Kane may be better.

                      C) KDB, Bruno --> Sterling, D. Silva (-4). KDB just hasn't been as potent lately, and Bruno looks tired. Still, this could backfire badly.

                      D) Willian, Bruno --> Soucek, Sterling (-4). Allows me to keep Salah and KDB, but is Soucek good enough?

                      Ryan - Button
                      TAA - Doherty - Saiss - C. Taylor - Lascelles

                      The captaincy is between Salah or Sterling for me.
                      Rival has Salah, and I have a 10 point lead
                      I currently have the armband on Sterling but just thinking of moving it to Mo

                        Move it to Salah as he doesn't have Sterling.

                        He could of course do Salah to Sterling...

                      A) Pope & Mane (Nketiah 1st bench)
                      B) Martinez & Salah ( Greenwood 1st bench)

                      Which one looks better FH team for you?

                      A) 3-5-2

                        Oh sorry, A have Greenwood - Kane forwards.

                        1 month, 29 days ago

                        It's close, but B for me.

                          1 month, 29 days ago

                          A then.

                          1 month, 29 days ago

                          B would be more safe to my eyes.
                          Have still feeling that Son could easily explode.

                          That doesn't make sense. B team has pricier GK, defender and 8th attacker

                            But doesnt have expensive Son.
                            Its basically Ings over Son and upgrading defence.

                            A doesnt have Ings, has Kane. Wrote it wrong.

                                That's really tough. B then I think

                          Would you go for a hit, chasing in cash league

                            What’s the gap and who are your differentials?

                              26 points, Salah, KDB, Ings and TAA

                                I wouldn’t take a further hit then unless early team news springs a few surprises . That’s a fine bunch to be leading the chase
