Tips

The Complete Guide to Scout’s tips and advice for FPL Gameweek 38+

It’s here: the final day of the season! Soon all the tinkering will stop and the rollercoaster ride will begin. Strap yourselves in! 

Welcome to the Fantasy Football Scout Guide to Gameweek 38+. Today’s deadline is at 15:00 BST, one hour before all ten matches kick-off.

The basics first: check the team news. Neale watches all the press conferences throughout the season and will have a sense for how each Premier League manager might approach their last game.

His predicted line-ups and notes contain the most up-to-date information about each team. Make sure your picks or potential transfer targets are included in his best-guess starting XIs. We might get some early team news but it helps to be prepared as much as possible beforehand.

There are a number of different ways to approach Gameweek 38+ and what you choose to do may depend on your overall rank and mini-league situation.

Mark Sutherns, for instance, hasn’t enjoyed his best campaign despite climbing the ranks since the resumption. And he revealed on the FPL show that Christian Pulisic will be his captain because he needs something different to break into the top 100k.

But this isn’t a recommendation that all FPL managers do the same, as Mark himself admitted a safe pick would be a Manchester City player such as Raheem Sterling or, perhaps, Kevin De Bruyne. In the conclusion to his Captain Sensible article, David wrote:

Sterling is clearly the most promising asset from Guardiola’s squad based on his last four performances. No Citizen can match him for big chances or shots on target during that period as he has rediscovered his clinical edge and an impassioned desire to hit 20 or more goals in the Premier League this season.

– David, Captain Sensible

Not only is Sterling in good form but he faces a team in bad shape. Norwich City have conceded 54 shots in the box over their last four matches; only Brighton have been worse. 

It’s easy to understand why so many are considering Pep Guardiola’s troops. To add fuel to the fire, Pep himself revealed that scoring goals will be a motivation for his players:

Every game there has to be a target, a focus, a desire to win the game, and maybe, scoring 100 goals is one of the reasons why.

– Pep Guardiola

The Citizens are currently on 97 goals for the season. So, is everyone tripling up on the former champions?

We’ve had five articles from our Pro Pundits this week: Zophar, Sam, Az, Holly, and Lateriser12 and they all have three City players in their teams.

Likewise Neale, who is preparing his Free Hit team, and Andy, who isn’t on a Free Hit but will have three City attackers.

On the Scoutcast, Az unveiled an alternative Free Hit team, one without Aubameyang, while both Joe and guest Aleksander will have two City attackers. Aleksander is currently third in the world and is debating whether he goes all out to win FPL – which means picking some differentials – or playing safe and trying to hold onto the bronze medal.

And in his regular review, TheFantasyFreÆK explained how he favours the City front three

It seems only Mark will have one City player as he considers swapping Willian for David Silva

Who knows where the points are going to go, it’s a bit of a lottery isn’t it?

– Mark Sutherns, FPL Show

But there are plenty of opportunities this week for captain and transfer options with a number of enticing match-ups. 

Newcastle, as Neale outlined on the Team News video, are down five of their recognised six centre-halfs, while David described them as being “among the most obliging defences of the last four matches”.

Good news for Liverpool and perhaps Mohamed Salah, who has, according to expected goals, been “the ‘unluckiest’ player in the Premier League from Gameweek 30+ onwards when we factor in both the quality of his chances and the execution of his shots”.

As Pro Pundit Holly notes:

[Salah’s] top for shots (21), shots on target (12) and shots inside the box (19), so ignore him at your peril.

– Pro Pundit Holly

On the Breakfast Club, Neale explained that Mané’s aerial ability could lead to points against the Magpies. Steve Bruce’s side have conceded the most headed chances since the restart, which is consistent with their performance all season. 

There could be a lot of joy in the air for Liverpool.

– Neale, Breakfast Club

Crystal Palace are another side who are expected to struggle, with injuries across their backline. Good news for Harry Kane:

Not only are the Eagles giving up a host of high-quality chances, Spurs’ centre-forward has been steadily improving his total of big chances and shots on target over the last four.

– David, Captain Sensible

Kane’s teammate Son Heung-min was mentioned by Aleksander on the Scoutcast, and Johnny Orphan, currently 53rd in the world, has an interesting theory that the Eagles’ current right-back Joel Ward is a weak link in their defence.

Meanwhile, Watford’s recent poor form will give encouragement to those backing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. The latter was selected by Pro Pundit Tom Freeman as one of his three differentials this week.

[The Hornets’] 13 big chances conceded over the last four matches is the same number as Palace and Norwich but means giving up one every 2.7 shots in the box.

– David, Captain Sensible

Seven of those big chances conceded were against Manchester City, it has to be said. 

Tricky Calls

We might feel reasonably confident in predicting wins for City, Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal but a number of matches are much harder to call.

Take Chelsea v Wolves, for example. Both teams need to get a result to fulfil their European ambitions. The boldness of Mark’s decision to hand Pulisic the armband is highlighted when we consider the strength of the opposition defence: 

Five big chances conceded by Wolverhampton Wanderers since the restart, which is the lowest total in the division. No club has conceded fewer goals (four), shots in the box (16) or efforts in the box (41) than Wolves from Gameweek 30+ onwards.

– Neale, Big Numbers

And Manchester United’s trip to Leicester City is another game with a lot potentially riding on the result – a place in the Champions League could be at stake.

Their recent schedule afforded Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men very little time to recover between matches, which may well have contributed to some tired-looking performances. However, as Az warned on the Scoutcast, taking out United players could hurt given their huge ownership levels. 

But, equally, this could be a very cagey match as a draw will be good enough for both teams should Wolves beat Chelsea.

Go cheap at the back?

With many managers looking to invest in appealing attacking assets, identifying cut-price defenders with clean sheet potential could be key to Gameweek 38+ success.

So Chris Wood’s comments ahead of Burnley’s match against Brighton were music to our ears:

As a team, we’ll be fighting like hell for [Nick Pope]. He’s an outstanding goalkeeper. Hopefully, we can get him one more so he can get his hands on the Golden Glove.

– Chris Wood

Not only do Burnley offer several cheap defensive options but there’s also the chance they could produce some attacking returns too:

36 chances conceded by Brighton and Hove Albion from their right flank since the restart. Only relegated Norwich City have allowed more opportunities to be created from that zone than the Seagulls… Erik Pieters could potentially exploit that weakness when the two sides meet on Sunday, then.

– Neale, Big Numbers

Since replacing Bernd Leno in goal in Gameweek 30+, Emiliano Martinez has saved 83.3% of the shots on target he’s faced. At £4.4m, he could help enable more expensive options further forward.

And Southampton have the fifth-best chance of recording a clean sheet according to the latest odds supplied, as ever, by G-Whizz. Alex McCarthy, Jack Stephens and Kyle Walker-Peters are all sub-£4.5m options for our squads.

Enjoy the final day

Lateriser12 reminded us that we should try to have fun, and one way of doing that is by playing the game our way:

… you still need to make well informed decisions that are based on stats and the eye-test and on the correct side of probability. The point is that you have to be happy you made the right choice for your playing style, regardless of the outcome.

– Lateriser12

In his article this week, he quoted former community member Eunuch Jelly, who defined what made playing FPL so enjoyable for him:

If you keep your eye on the ball, you can set yourself up for hours of enjoyment at the expense of your rivals. I urge you to transcend points and find the true heart of the game, where those who take a different path can mock others for a few minutes on the weekend and be the real champions of the game.

– Eunuch Jelly

Whether it’s getting one over on a rival or reaching a certain rank, FPL is a game which unites us all.

TopMarx Fan of Fantasy Football and Monty Python. "Archimedes out to Socrates, Socrates back to Archimedes, Archimedes out to Heraclitus, he beats Hegel. Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.”

        Looking ahead, when does next season's Europa League start, and will it be truncated, or will the same number of games be played?

        I'm thinking of the potentially murderous burden placed on Sheff United's fixture list at the start of next seaon.

          Could be a curse getting Europe. The small squad, fixtures, potential injuries.

          SHU won't be Europe next season it's 2 from wolves, spurs & arsenal depending on who with fa cup

            Really? Just as well. Blades would be like Burnley ++ from 2 seasons ago. The squad is too small to successfully rotate. Wolves managed it - I don't know how, but I'd be super-worried for Blades.

            So, cheers TLR - I can draft an Egan into my next season's squad!

        sitting at 23k overall rank. What, if any, move(s) should I make. 1FT and playing TC chip on Sterling probably

        Martinez
        TAA - Gomez - Aurier - Pieters
        Salah - KDB - Foden - Bruno - Sterling (TC)
        Jimenez

        Patricio - Nketiah - Greenwood - AWB

        A) Save
        B) Jimenez > Ings/Wood
        C) Bruno + Foden > Dilva/Mahrez and then 6.9 mid or less (-4)
        D) Jimenez and Foden > Dilva + JayRod or DCL (-4)
        E) Something else

        Cheers and good luck!

        3) salah to Sterling
        4) rashford + vardy to kane + Ings (-4)

        Which defender on FH?

        Aurier
        Digne

        Currently leaning towards VVD but keep changing my mind

        1 month, 25 days ago

        Which one?
        A. KDB to Dilva
        B. Bruno to Dilva because already have Greenwood
        C. Salah to Dilva
        D. Baldock to Doherty
        E. Vardy to Auba

        Keep Salah or bring in Sterling(TC)??

        Already own KdB and Dilva. If I sell Salah it also allows me to do Rash to Kane/Auba for -4, if not I am stuck with triple Utd and dont have Sterling, also need to TC Dilva probably but have Mo. It is killing me right now.

        1. Sid07

      • Alli
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        A) Pope, TAA, Aurier, Saka (start Gwood, Saka first bench)
        B) Martinez, VVD, Bardsley, Antonio (start Antonio, Gwood first bench)

      • Sailboats
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        1- Mane + Bruno
        or
        2- Sterling + Dilva (-4)

        1. Blame it on Traore
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Have Salah, considering Sterling, already Have DSilva and KDB.

        Stick with Salah or go with Sterling?

          Try and get both

          1. Jinkys Oars
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Midfield is currently Pulisic, Bruno, KDB, DSilva and Salah, have to drop one of them to fit Sterling in.

      • JUNITED
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Is it worthy to do -8 to get Kane and captain him? I don't have Sterling. And I have Dilva as my current C.

        No Sakho, No Tomkins, No Cahill & No PvA. They are fecked in defense at the moment.

      • joelsprylar
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        If we not now that Sterling is gonna start maybe its safer to go with Kane or Salah as a captain. They both are on pens and play 90 minuts almost every time.

        1. tokara
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Kane

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Which one?

        A) David Silva, Fernandes
        Greenwood on bench, Salah Captain

        B) Sterling(C), Greenwood -4
        No bench

        1. nicksilver
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Salah (C)

        Hey y'all

        A. Rashford, Bruno, KDB and Martial ----> sterling, mahrez, salah and greenwood for -12

        B. Rashford and Bruno ---> Sterling and Greenwood for a -4

        Chasing 16 pts and rival has FH
        I have TC

        Replies appreciated!

        If leader owns Sterling and 7 of my first XI, but I’m on BB, could a punt on Pulisic(c) pay off or should I just captain Sterling like he will and hope to win battles elsewhere on the pitch?
