Fantasy Football Scout will be dishing out £2,500-worth of prizes in the 2020/21 campaign – and it won’t cost you a penny to be in with a chance of winning.

Paid-entry cash leagues may be a thing of the past in Fantasy Premier League but we’re continuing the giveaways, with prizes awarded in our FFS Cups and our Fantasy Football Scout Members mini-league.

That last league – the code for which is available here – is now open to everyone who has an account on our site, whether they have a paid subscription (Premium Member) or not (Community Member).

All you need to do to be eligible for our giveaways is to register an account with us and become a Community Member, something that is completely free of charge.

You’ll get your own profile page and can opt in to receive our weekly newsletter when you sign up, plus you’ll be able to post and track comments and submit your own articles.

NEW DESIGN FOR PREMIUM MEMBERS AREA

Having said all of the above, we’d naturally love you to come on board as a Premium Member for 2020/21 – if you haven’t already.

Only paying subscribers will get unrestricted access to all our tools and stats in our Premium Members Area plus loads more articles and insight from our ever-expanding team of elite FPL contributors, such as Hall of Fame number one Fábio Borges, Hall of Fame number three Darren Wiles, ex-champion Simon March, five-time top 1k finisher Tom Freeman, three-time top 200 finisher Lateriser, six-time top 5k finisher Zophar and Fantasy Football Scout’s founding father, Mark Sutherns.

You can expect another announcement or two on that front coming soon…

On top of that, we’re excited to announce a big overhaul behind the scenes.

We’ve listened to your feedback and our Premium Members Area is currently undergoing a major revamp to make it easier to use and more mobile-friendly.

You can take a sneak preview of what it will look like in the video below:



PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP PRE-SEASON OFFER ENDS SOON

Fantasy Football Scout Premium Memberships for the 2020/21 season are still available at the pre-season cost of £17.50 – but time is running out on this offer.

Subscriptions will rise to the regular season price of £19.99 after August 31 so, if you haven’t already, make sure to sign up before that point in order to secure the best-value rate.

The yearly fee of £17.50 works out at an equivalent of less than £1.50 a month (or 5p a day!) as, instead of expiring on June 1 as was previously the case, these rolling annual subscriptions now cover a full 12-month period.

That’s better value than our rivals are offering for the equivalent all-access Premium Membership package.

If you prefer to dip your toe into the water rather than plunge right in, however, we are continuing to offer rolling monthly subscriptions for just £2.99 per month.

And here’s what you’ll be getting for your money in 2020/21:



Existing registered users can upgrade via this link. New users, who are yet to get a registered account, can sign up via this link.

Payments can be made through Paypal or via Stripe using debit or credit cards.

          First season on here in years. Crazy to see the growth

          1. Pras (FPL)
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Comes at a price though. Come here on a matchday.

        4. Pras (FPL)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Not sure if it’s just the growth or the fact that there are many other platform offering cash prizes etc. It’s a competitive market, no more monopoly of 7-10 years ago.

        Which 6.5 - 8.0 ST will you be having in your team to start off with

        Any ideas would be welcomed

        1. Whiskerz
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I'd be finding the extra .5 for jim or ings

        2. A-L
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Greenwood on the bench

        3. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Nothing good in that bracket, either .5 less or .5 more are the better price points

        4. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Antonio

        5. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Antonio the only one I like for GW1

        6. Z
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Mitro (Antnoio has bad fixtures)

        7. Carlton P
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Antonio with an eye on wood

        8. SpoonPants
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Maupay is in my squad and going nowhere

        9. Pep bites Kun
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Antonio for gw1&2, but with Soucek may be a double too far

        10. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          None, there is nobody worth having at those price points,

      5. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Lots of casuals will be jumping off Doherty now. *Rubs hands together*.

        1. JamTart
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Why?

          1. Fudgy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            He's gone to Spurs so loads of casuals will think he will be a non option under Mourinho.

            1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              I think casuals are thinking the opposite

              1. Fudgy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                Not true, ownership is going down

                1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  Maybe because of us? Most casuals haven't joined yet

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Quite the opposite actually

        3. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Loads of casual will load up on Vinager with Nuno not seeing him as a nailed option.

        4. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Casuals will not leave Doherty set and forget.

        5. circusmonkey
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          It is funny the obsession with casuals. Firstly, there are different level of dedication and knowledge that fall somewhere below being completely obsessed and on here all the time (which is what I interpret as your understanding of not being a casual).

          Also, the idea that they all think the same and will act in the same way and in the most dumb way like a load of sheep is wrong. There was even someone on here saying that casuals will sell City and United players once they realise that they didn't play in week one, as if they will never play again.

          Rub hands all you want you will look like an idiot very quickly. Matt Doherty will be average with Spurs. He is a system player

        how do you enter the leagues?

          Ha, I've been trying to figure that out myself!

            • 6 Years

            Me 2! I cannot find the league entry code anywhere.

            Thanks. Would never have found that obscure link in a thousand years!

      7. JamTart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Trying to decide if Ziyech is a risk early on?

        Hasn't played in months but has been bedding in with the squad. Guess him and Son to start then drop one for Greenwood is a good option?

        1. Tomerick
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I think he’s worth trying as he’s got some great fixtures and as you say his price point allows for easy moves to the usual suspects.

          1. JamTart
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Yeah that's my thinking, let's me have Ings and not Werner too without feeling too bad

            1. Tomerick
              • 7 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              I’m doubling with Werner. Werner is a must for me.

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Would rather punt on Havertz if he signs, Ziyech a big question mark for me

          1. JamTart
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Will depend on his price but potentially

      8. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Boring question..

        Who scores more points for GW1?
        A) Fabianski (NEW)
        B) Leno (ful)
        C) Someone else priced at 5.0

        1. The Minus Fours
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Ramsdale

          1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Can't see Wolves not scoring!

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Fab, Arsenal will find a way to leak a goal

          1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            I hear ya but they looked better defensively after the break. Fabianski is really tempting with that fixture tho!

        3. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

            Same

        4. Amey
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          McCarthy looks best bet for CS to me

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            He’ll have him already on BB

            1. Amey
              • 3 Years

              Leno then

        Intentional avoiding FPL tab on my browser to not think about the team. 😆
        It's difficult tbh.
        So many things going on. Dynamics of the FPL will cahnge so many times.

        I'm already feeling connected to my draft since I haven't changed it for a long time.

        Now i wish game should have launched later. Ha ha ha

        1. The Minus Fours
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          It could be worse - your City rivals could be about to sign Messi when all you can look forward too is Jack "Party Boy" Grealish holding a shirt and dying a slow death like Saha/WellBeck and many others and signing the same day Phil Jones extends his contract LOL

          1. Amey
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            You missed some good bits there but i won't mention that 🙂

            I don't see Messi coming to City. Not out of bias. But makes no sense to come to hardest league in the world at the age of 33.

            1. The Minus Fours
              • 2 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Unless your in the top 5 players......of all time.

              1. Amey
                • 3 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                Top5 or Top100

                PL is a beast. Playing at such high intensity week in week out ain't easy.

                1. The Minus Fours

                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  He wont need to - he will waltz around the final third and come to life when KDB/Sterling/Bernado/Foden/Aguero/Mahrez get the ball back...he has been scoring for fun in the worst Barca team for 10 years - Imagine KDB and Co. supplying the bullets.

                  1. Amey
                    • 3 Years
                    1 year, 3 months ago

                    Yup
                    Keep imagining

                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  This comment underestimates how good Messi is

                  1. Amey
                    • 3 Years
                    1 year, 3 months ago

                    I'm very sad it looked that way.

                    It's practical IMO. But, I'm not in a mood to explain myself 🙂

            Louis Saha was pretty decent

              • 2 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Which game was that? LOL

                Was actually a really good backup for 5 seasons. United could use that kind of depth right about now.

          Not a big fan of the idea of ASM and Armstrong both starting

          Looks solid. Like the forward line.

          Defense could be a bit unknown at this stage. Vinagre, Saliba might not start. Possibly having two 5.5 mids is somewhat inflexible.

          Ok if you like Werner for the first 2 - or is he out week 2?

          Would prefer 5.0 in defence - don’t really fancy either 4.5 to be transfer free. Koucek as 4th mid week 1 and then to become first bench

          1. Flynny
            • 6 Years

            Yeah I could download Jimmy and move some funds i guess

            Good point about Werner ..
            I'm avoiding committing to Werner Greenwood or Pulisic Martial combo to see Which is better around GW 3/4.

            Keeping Son Jimenez as placeholders for 2 attacking spots one each for Chelsea United

        3. FPL Pillars
          • 5 Years

          Leno will be number one, no doubt.

          Doesn't matter if he comes back to England before 14 days from GW 2 deadline

        Spurs have a really bad fixture pile up right? So Doherty becoming a worse option?

        1. FOO FIGHTER

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Doherty is an even better option

        3. Krafty Werks
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Was nailed in my time at Wolves but now considering possible switch to VVD or maybe Tierney? Defo dampened his attraction for me on the face of things anyway. Pre-season will make the final decision for me.

        4. Amey
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I'm looking at who's Wolves going to sign to replace him.

        5. Salarrivederci
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          My only problem with Doherty now is, that I don't know if he'll start straight away. Think Spurs fixtures look good for Doherty, but might need more than 2 weeks to play his way into the team?

          Vinagre looks great again though.

      14. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years

        All these 1 x 4.0 and 3 x 4.5 defence rotation to be buried by GW2.

          Loads of great 4.5 options this season, it’s totally viable. Agree we should be swerving the 4.0s though

        Can't deny the prospect of a backline with Lloris - Doherty - Davies - Dier to get 4 CS in a Mourinho second season team excites me...

        Until they concede in the 90th minute to a Tom Davies banger

      17. KUNingas
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        First draft. 1.5 ITB. Leaning to take Greenwood already at bench to mitigate future transfers. Thoughts, pretty template?

        McCarthy, Nyland
        TAA, Justin, Vinagre, Mitchell, Johnson
        Salah, Auba, Greenwood, ASM, Romeu
        Werner, Ings, Mitro

        And what you guys think of Adams? Or just trust Ings?

        1. Dthinger
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          I think you might want to shift some money to defense

          1. KUNingas
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Yeah I know. Will monitor Mitchell and Johson closely. Looking at Davies to replace one of them.

          1 year, 3 months ago

          Ye, you’re barely playing a back 3 at the mo, would upgrade one of the 4.0’s

          1. KUNingas
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            I guess there are any good 4.5 defs so have to stretch 5.0

            1. Dthinger
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Justin, Vinagre, Lascelles, Bednarek, KWP...

              There are a bunch at 4.5

        3. Joss Ackland’s Spunky…
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Very template and very similar to mine.

          Ryan, button, branthwaite For Johnson, Armstrong for Romeu the only difference with 0.5 itb.

          I will be looking to strengthen defence but think it’s worth seeing if 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 is preferable and strip a 1m or so From 5th mid, 3rd striker.

          1. KUNingas
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Any chance Brantwaite would get play time?

            1. Joss Ackland’s Spunky…
              • 2 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              In all honesty I don’t know. Just a matter of keeping tabs on who out of these 4.0’s look most nailed. I’ll happily carry 2 playing 4m def on bench to start with. 3-4-3, 3-5-2 with 2 premium defenders is what I would like to do. I think the Vinagre and Justin picks are solid to start with and then I’ll be looking to upgrade to a VVD or AWB etc

              1. KUNingas
                • 5 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                Totally agree with you. Looking at AWB and Davies for that second def pick

      18. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Points will be 1st in midfield and then 2nd in defence this season.

        Expensive fwd line ends you up with a 4.5 mid + Soucek.

        1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years

          Not necessarily. 😀

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Adams and Mitro at 6m and Richa at 8m.

            1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Kane and Calvert-Lewin for me. 🙂

              1. FOO FIGHTER
                • 2 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                When you go Antonio, you start looking at your defence and think WTF.

                Go Kane or Vardy then you look at your midfield with Soucek as your 3rd mid.

                Expensive fwd line not for me.

                1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 12 Years
                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  I have Moutinho and Lundstram. Happy with those. 🙂

                  1. FOO FIGHTER
                    • 2 Years
                    1 year, 3 months ago

                    Lundstram no longer OOP plus he made a scene about his contract.

                      Still going to be integral to their attack.

                      1. FOO FIGHTER

        2. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Much better of course to start a 4.5 forward 🙂

          Jim and Ings just missing 200 points was a disaster last season after all. Spend another 5/6 million on Mo and there was another 40 points of course

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Do you not think there's some decent forward options this year?

          I know they're at the higher end but Ings, Jimenez, Werner, Martial, and Vardy all potentially good bets vs midfielders at same price

          1. Goonsquad245
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Antonio and Wood will wipe the floor with 6.5m mid options too, unless Foden gets sustained minutes.

            1. andy85wsm
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Yeah that's a fair point.

              Shame Antonio doesn't have better fixtures! But it's a fair point, cheaper forwards and pack midfield isn't a bad bet

            2. Amey
              • 3 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              What do you mean by that ??

              1. Goonsquad245
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                Antonio and Wood are far stronger than their equivalents in midfield at the same or similar price

                1. Amey
                  • 3 Years
                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  Ohh
                  For sure !
                  Only Greenwood comes close he's also 1m expensive.

                  You're right. Soucek is good but he's like 1st bench option.

                  1. Goonsquad245
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    1 year, 3 months ago

                    This is the problem - there’s a real disconnect. I think most of the points will come from midfield still, but I’m strongly considering 4-3-3 because there is more value in the cheaper forwards.

                    1. Amey
                      • 3 Years
                      1 year, 3 months ago

                      Set N forget 4 & 3 and swapping around Strikers ? 😀

                        • 5 Years
                        1 year, 3 months ago

                        No such thing as a set and forget for me mate until value options emerge 🙂 TAA and 2x wolves defence likely to stay though to be fair along with Salah.

                        Starting with Auba so I can re-evaluate where to go with the cash GW3.

                        1. Amey

                          1 year, 3 months ago

                          2* Wolves might just become difficult with this Doherty move.

                          Hopefully he stays at Wolves 😀

                          1. Goonsquad245
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            1 year, 3 months ago

                            I’m on 3 at the moment with Doherty 😀

                            Think Saïss is massively overlooked at 5m.

                          2. Amey
                            • 3 Years
                            1 year, 3 months ago

                            He won't be if Doherty moves on sadly. Saiss is a goal threat on set plays.

                            We can get Wolves Wing backs for < 10m which sounds lovely

                    2. Ser Davos
                      • 6 Years

                      • 3 Years
                      1 year, 3 months ago

                      Foden is not a good option IMO. So i agree with you on that

        4. el polako
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Maybe but still tempted to go with Werner.

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

          Jimenez! He could be more explosive without Europa league this season and he is more likely to get 90 minutes rather than subbing off around 65 to 70 mins for Abraham or Giroud.

        I still can't even decide what formation I want.

        Definitely only want 2 up top.

        Are people looking at playing a long term 4 4 2 with 2 x 4.5m defenders?

        What formation are people looking at? Thanks

          Every combo I build ends up in 4-4-2, at least for the first week. I keep trying to build a 3-4-3 but can't seem to get there. Was on a 5-4-1 for a bit.

          My teams predominantly a 4-4-2, but I’ve got Soucek on the bench, so can go 3-5-2 at times.

        6. Joss Ackland’s Spunky…
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Currently at 3-4-3. Prices are favourable for 3 up top if you can find the right combo. You can spend less than 27-28m and get a gun forward line. You couldn’t last year for that money. I’m starting with 3 and taking it from there. Werner, Ings, Martial averages at 9m a player for example. Could be great.

        How does this look with 0.5 itb:

        McCarthy, Nyland

        TAA, Doherty, Mitchell, Justin, Vinagre

        Salah, Auba, Son, Armstrong (Stephens)

        Ings, Jimi

        TAA, Doherty and Vinagre are pick & stick (if Vinagre is viable) with Justin and Mitchell rotating (if Mitchell gets the nod for Palace)

        0.5 itb could is for Son to Rashford or Ings/Jimi to Martial, depending on form/outlook

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Looks strong! Personally I would punt on Werner over one of Jimi/Ings - by downgrading Doherty to Davies or Dier.

        Evans is suspended gw1 and Bennett returned back to wolves, surely it’s not Morgan?

        Not that I’ll go there just wondering if it dents the appeal of Thomas or Justin

            *Thanks all

            I'm really trying to work out how to play it

            Pick the Pool defenders as set and forget. As long as they get 15 CSs then they'll be great

            The other big thing I'm also trying to implement is minimising transfers. They're set and forget if you stick with them and then use transfers up top and in midfield

            Auba - Bruno - KDB/Sterling

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 2 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              I would not pick Robbo over Salah. Would rather go 3 withe Brewster.

            2. Goonsquad245
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              You won’t know when they’ll come though is the issue. Robbo’s performance in the first 10 last season won’t be representative of how he might perform in the first 10 this season.

              In my view people also massively overstate the Alisson/Gomez effect too. Liverpool’s defensive stats didn’t change much between 1-15 and 15-30. I know people will say they ‘looked’ more solid and kept more CS and attribute it to those two, but I’d expect that extra solidity to be borne out in statistical improvements too (less chances conceded/lower quality of chances conceded, and in Alisson’s case a high xG prevented delta) or its just as likely to be variance for me.

              1. Ser Davos
                • 6 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                Yeah, good post. I felt the Pool defence looked terrible instantly when Alisson was still fit and Gomez was playing. They'd be shaping up terribly in pre season too.

              2. Amey
                • 3 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                Allison is a World Class GK. Have seen him saving pool's ass last season sometimes.

                Gomez is quick & is perfect foil for VVD as they play high line & confident in each others ability to win ball back if they lose in 2v2 situations. Matip doesn't offer that.

                Didn't mention backup GK as don't want to say bad about him as everyone bashes him anyway

                1. Goonsquad245
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  It’s fine to say all that and I don’t necessarily disagree, but on the Gomez point in particular I’d expect that to result in much stronger defensive stats (lower chances conceded and therefore xG conceded) and it just didn’t.

                  I don’t trust my eyes enough in isolation to tell me if a defence has truly improved or not, but if they have it’s one of the easiest things to see in terms of a change in chances conceded etc.

                  Same issue with united. People see Maguire etc making mistakes and think they’re a terrible defence when in actual fact they really aren’t.

              3. Ser Davos
                • 6 Years

      30. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I would rather have Soucek than Lundstram this season.

        For this reason I am not having either.

        1. Galza-The Wanton Trader
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Soucek is in my GW1 team, then he’s going on my bench and will make the odd cameo in my team in a 3-5-2, if I don’t fancy a fixture for one of my defenders.

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            I would rather have a playing 4.5 defender over Soucek.

            1. Galza-The Wanton Trader
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Yeah maybe.
              There’s not a lot in it though really.

              Why?

      31. Hattrick Harry
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        1m ITB:
        McCarthy (Peacock-Farrell)
        Tierney, Lascelles, Dier, Ayling (Johnson)
        Son, Willian, Ziyech, Pereira (KDB)
        Vardy, Bamford (Martial)

        Johnson 4.0 is the only unsecure starter who might get some PT along the season. Pool players in from gw4 and like usually changes because of injuries/red cards etc. will ruin some plans, that’s why I’m not going to plan much more.

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          No offence but where did the money go?
          Where is Trent?
          Bench 20m+?

          1. Hattrick Harry
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            KDB and Martial don’t play in gw1 as you might know. I think pool has hangover like champions use to have, its worth waiting for a while to get TAA in.

        2. Gomolon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          Well, it's certainly different! I get keeping a player on the bench who isn't playing GW1 but two premiums seems excessive. Who do you bench GW2 from that front line?? I can't see the formation

        Hi, is Davies nailed at Tottenham or will he rotate?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Sessegnon could take some of his minutes away, but I do think Davies will see the lions share.

          I’m going for Dier as I think he will do well.
          He will also be very dangerous when going up for set pieces.

          Davies will play. Whether he is nailed is up in the air.
