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.

    Ahhhh, here we are. My first DZ in years, how are ya chaps.

    Look up on my works, ye mighty, and despair.

    Lloris (Ryan)
    TAA - Doherty - Vinagre - Taylor (Johnson)
    Salah - KDB* - Fernandes - St.Maximin (Anguissa)
    Brewster - Antonio - Jimenez

      All standard names. GW1 you've got at best 10, possibly 8 starters. Waste of 0.5 on the keeper situation - Lloris plays every week.

        believe it or not, that fields XI assuming my subs start. which sub do you think is a sure no-start?

        interesting on the GK, i hadn't even thought of it, thank you. I may go Doherty -> VVD, but i had a dream that Doherty will be Jose's new Ivanovic

    Auba Salah Son
    Jimenez Mitrovic

    Steer ASM Stephens Davis

    Thoughts?

    i'm late to the party in terms of doing pre-season prep and finding it really difficult to come up with starting strategy, mainly due to price and position changes. thats the point right...

    I see many going for McCarthy in goal. Is it an easy decision to start with 4.5m and spend the money elsewhere. Just a bit wary of Saints defence with Hojberg no longer there in midfield and they also had the worst home record in the league last season

    thoughts on this one?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Spend 4.5m on your keeper. Go Ryan/Button if you don't like the other options.

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      McCarthy is a fairly safe bet. He may get fewer points that a more expensive keeper, but the gap is usually less than in other positions, so many go cheap in goal and invest outfield. If you think Saints will be as bad as Bournemouth, then avoid, but really it's a question of who gets more - McC or Ryan.
      You ref to 'last season' - you have to separate the pre 0-9 disaster to the new formation, new attitude second half of season.

      Southampton have been great since the restart, definitely prefer one of the 4.5s

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Thanks. Probably worth starting with 4.5 especially if wildcarding early on

        I'm happy if he gets 60 to 70 mins for the 1st 2 game week

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Kind fixtures or otherwise, I'm not sold on Justin, given Leicester's absenteeism and issues at the back.

          You could argue he has some goal/assist threat, but I'd be more inclined to downgrade one of Saka, ASM or Armstrong and use the 0.5/1m to upgrade one of your 4.5m defenders.

          That said, you probably have a tidy rotation set up between the four of them.

    3. fpork
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I think you waste a lot of money going with three 5.5 midfielders. Especially since you have four 4.5 midfielders.

      Downgrade and spend money elsewhere.

        1 month, 27 days ago

        what is the general consensus ?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          One LIV mid, Aubameyang, Saint Maximin, Armstrong, Son, Jimenez, Werner, Kane

          1. Vamos Los Celeste
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Jimi & Werner can be nice picks, not sure about the others.

    2. Boywiththesoupdragontattoo
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I like that it’s got some names you don’t see very much. As long as you embrace the fact that the week you transfer Richarlison out (in frustration at his limited returns) he’ll haul and compound the misery,

      More seriously, I feel like Barnes/Jota both ended up sharing minutes with others (e.g., Perez/Podence) but if they do play they’ll be great value.

  9. BNMC
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Is it worth saving 0.5 by getting Lloris and Walker-Peters over McCarthy and Doherty? Assume Doherty goes to Spurs.

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Can work

      1. BNMC
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        My main concern is being priced out of moves for big hitters. I always like keeping 0.5-1.0 ITB at the start of season just to be safe, but Doh has a much higher ceiling than any of those other 3 players...

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Can't save 0.5 in any other position?

          1. BNMC
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Tierney to Saliba or Gabriel - I assume the latter will be more nailed

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Not a bad idea, but I think Doherty's attacking returns will heavily outweigh KWP's

    3. St. Stephen XI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      There's definitely a suspicion among posters that a transfer to Spurs is going to put a major dent in Doherty's attacking returns, but on the other hand Spurs have a pretty friendly set of fixtures to start the season (one tough fixture among the first eight). I'd be surprised to see Doherty lose value over this stretch, and if he takes on the role of the one attacking FB in Mou's attack (see Aurier last season) he could be set up for some good returns.

      I don't think rostering him from the start with a "wait and see" kind of attitude is that major a risk - you can move him out and turn him into pretty much any other defender without having to make a second transfer to create money to make the move go.

      The Spurs move has made me a lot less committed to the idea that Doherty will be on my team all season long, but I'm willing to start the season with him to see how it works out. When Spurs fixtures take a turn for the worse, I will definitely revisit. Maybe a move to AWB?

    4. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Could be a good move, the whole of our (spurs) back line could be a little suspect to rotation if they don’t perform well so Lloris is a safe bet

      That said I think Doherty will do well assuming aurier leaves

      1. St. Stephen XI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        From the way last season wound down, Davies looks nailed on the other side. What say you?

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Oh for sure, I’m starting with him, wouldn’t surprise me to see sess get some minutes but I recon Davies is your safest bet Stephen with a PH like it should be

          1. St. Stephen XI
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 27 days ago

            My user/team name is a shoutout to fellow Deadheads. I had twin brothers in a history class one year whose names were Steve and Stephen. Always assumed that the parents did that in case they mixed them up in the bathtub as babies.

            In my current draft I'm going bold by including Davies and Doherty. Gonna ride that horse until around week nine. To quote the band Spinal Tap, "there's a fine line between stupid and clever."

    Thoughts on this team? I'm VERY much set on this for GW1- Ziyech is just in for the 1st week then I'll move him out to Greenwood. Then GW3 will move KDB in for Auba. 4.5s may be subject to change once we see a couple of friendlies.

      Looks good. My only worry would be Mitchell’s minutes. Appealing as Werner is, I think a combo like Robbo/Mitrovic is going to outscore Werner/Mitchell, particularly because you have 2 x 12m mids meaning you’re unlikely to captain Werner much.

      1. BigBillyBass
        • 2 Years

    For GW1 only (will become Rash GW2), best 9.5 max MID (not Son)?

      Pulisic is hurt, so not a safe bet.
      City don't play, so Mahrez out.
      Arsenal have a good matchup, but who knows whether Willian or Pepe will get the minutes you want.
      I'd roll with Ziyech. Seems pretty certain to play and Brighton don't frighten me.

        Yeah, Ziyech seems to be the man. Cheers!

    Any thoughts on whether one should/shouldn't love Matheus Pereira? The YouTube highlight vids look good, but it might just be the music.

    1. Top Mark.S
      • 3 Years

      On my watchlist.

      Think he could be a future star at a big 6 team but he has not played at this level and is in a weak team with a rough start.

      Easy fixture run and I will be tempted

      1. TheMooyBoys

        From Gw2-8 West Brom are top in season ticker for attack.

        1. Top Mark.S
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Week 1 Leicester
          Week 3 chelsea

          I will consider after

      2. St. Stephen XI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        His fixtures for the first eight weeks are all 2s and 3s. It's not a total cakewalk, but it has me thinking of rolling the dice for sure.

        1. Top Mark.S
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          I dont like the Leicester and chelsea fixtures in first 3. Please dont say but they are at home, u cant surely think the colour coding is as relevant without fans. Hone games make no difference. Opening fixtures are bad brah

    2. TheMooyBoys
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Set-pieces, aggressive on ball and likes a shot, can play a long ball/through pass really well which could be handy if West Brom are forced to play counter attacking football with a lack of possession in the top division.
      Only doubt in my mind is he plays for west brom and therefore may be starved of chance, however if they score it's likely he'll be involved in one form or another

        Thanks much for your feedback.

      He's exactly the sort of very good Championship player who gets blown away with the wind in the Premier League. He looks great on YouTube but I won't be including him.

      1. St. Stephen XI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Thanks for your perspective.

  21. Von Lipwig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    For GW2:
    A) Rash + Greenwood
    B) Rash + Foden

    1. St. Stephen XI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      If Messi ends up at City, I have some real concerns about Foden's minutes. With Silva's departure I had an estimate of around 2000 minutes for Foden which would make him a top end 6.5 mid with upside. Messi's arrival would demand a rethink.

      Of course Greenwood is in the same boat where his apparent value could be blown up by the right (wrong) transfer.

      I'd be putting that decision off as long as possible.

      1. Von Lipwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Cheers. Yeah Messi would change a lot

  22. Disturbed

    Ings or Son?

    1. TheMooyBoys
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Ings

    2. Siva Mohan

      Son

    3. Boywiththesoupdragontattoo

      Ings

    4. Original Pirate Material

      Danny.

    5. fpork
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1 month, 27 days ago

      Son because it enables you to bring in City/United players later.

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        True. But can also do ings > martial.

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Like this option especially if you want to hold onto Werner.

        2. fpork
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          I just see more options in midfield. Depends of course on the rest of your team.

  23. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Who do people have as their top 2 United options and does it change with a RW signing?

    I am...
    1) Fernandes
    2) Greenwood, but if he is impacted by a signing then Martial

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      1. Fernandes
      2. Martial
      3. Greenwood
      4. Rashford

      1. Siva Mohan
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        ^ this

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Is that without a signing made?

          1. The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Sorry, yes.
            Probably still the same if Sancho signs due to Greenwood’s value.
            All 4 are good though.

    2. St. Stephen XI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Who would be the most likely to sacrifice minutes if Sancho is brought on board? I'm under the impression that it's Greenwood. My top two are

      1) Fernandes (bring in week 2)
      2) Rashford (bring in week 2 or 3)

      Right now I'm happy with Ings and Jimi up front every week and have Brewster in as my third F waiting to see where he might go on loan. Rashford fit a slot better than Martial did. Also feel like there's a good number of decent places where I could land if I wanted to move Rashford - definitely keeping an eye on Chelsea's attack.

      1. Andy_Social

        My drafts were designed to start with Greenie on the bench and bring Bruno in GW2. But yesterday I looked more closely at their opening fixtures. GW2 & 3 easy enough, but then miserly defences. I can see too many 1-0 results meaning it's not worth having premium assets. For all the talk of City having bad fixtures until GW11, I see more goals in them so am now looking at KDB + one other from City and not bothering with United. I'm structured so that if I change my mind, 1FT brings in Martial or Greenwood.

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      1. Fernandes
      2. Greenwood (if they don't buy anyone)
      3. Rashford
      4. Martial
      5. Greenwood (if they buy)

  24. Siva Mohan
    • 8 Years

    If Lacazette moves out then Auba would play upfront?

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Strong chance.

    2. amitmishr
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Probably rotate with nketiah for the cf role, but likely to play CF for 70% time

  25. CONNERS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Not seen Matt Ritchie in many teams. Could be a decent option for a 5th mid at 5.0m.

    74 points from 18 appearances last season (4.1 ppg Av).

    1. St. Stephen XI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Watching him with keen interest this preseason.

    2. Bartowski
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Newcastle are bad though. Usually you weigh up the value of midfielders based on the potential assists but that strike force is so woeful I'm steering well clear.

    3. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      He is in my team.
      If he stays in Newcastle he will play (not all games - injury prone and will probably rotate)
      He may as well be on penalties, free/corner kicks.
      I mean - you can’t expect much more from 5 mil player.

      1. Birds of Prey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I had and changed to ASM, but looked as good as any at 5.0. For what you said+ he plays quite fwd.

    4. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Newcastle aren't great, but if he can maintain his ppg av from last season he's a bargain imo, especially if still on most set pieces.

    5. Pepereina Pizza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      wasn't he classified as a defender last season? (now a MID)

  26. fpork
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    What do you guys think? Not seeing Rudiger in other teams, so I guess he is not nailed?
    Johnstone (Nyland)
    Vinagre, Alexander-Arnold, Lascelles, Rüdiger, Walker-Peters
    Salah, Aubameyang, Son (Gordon, Greenwood)
    Vardy, Mitrović (Brewster)

    The plan is to switch Vardy into Werner if he is a success. Auba/Salah to KDB and Son to either Fernandes or Rashford. Johnstone to avoid having KWP and McCarthy.

    1. Birds of Prey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I like your Vardy? Werner plan. Hadn't read that.

  27. Bring back Rafa
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 27 days ago

    When you pick a guy like Mitrovic (or anyone priced around there) are you expecting to use him every game?
    Because I kind of think $6m on the bench is kind of a waste, unless against City or a Liverpool.

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      play him every game

      1. Birds of Prey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        every game better than any 4th mid

  28. Bartowski
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Everyone seems to have Mitrovic in their team. As I remember everyone was similarly excited about him a couple of seasons ago and that didn't work out so well.

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      he had a great start to the season i recall, he then fell away and most sold him quite quickly

    2. GRIMANDI [formerly boring M…
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I think it comes down to the fCt that there are so few options in the budget striker bracket. Also pair this with the fact that they have favourable fixtures too at the start

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Exactly. Fulham are top of the ticker for ease-of-fixtures in weeks 1 to 10.

        1. Bartowski
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Certainly if you look at their fixtures they are mainly mid table prem teams and below and not the top six but these arent easy games for a newly promoted team who were terrible the last time they were in the prem.

        2. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Easy fixtures from a defensive point of view. Many of the oppostion teams have miserly defences though.

    3. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Eh? Mitro was great last time

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Are you thinking of when he was at Newcastle?

      2. Bartowski
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        After a good start in September he scored six goals in the remainder of the season.

        1. Ginkapo FPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Perfect, so a good player to start with

          1. Bartowski
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I'm not sure each season has the same symmetry I'm afraid.

      3. Birds of Prey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        That's what I'm recalling.

  29. Original Pirate Material
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    If Brewster does get a move to Shef Utd, do you think he walks into that starting 11? Knowing Wilder he’ll have to work for a place which may be a while.

    1. fpork
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      For 4.5, does it really matter?

      1. Original Pirate Material
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Just looking for a diamond bro.

    2. Bartowski
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      He's staying at Liverpool apparently which isn't really surprising given their lack of depth up front.

      1. Original Pirate Material
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Yeah I did wonder about this, people comment saying Minimino is of a Firmino ilk, I personally dont see it.

      2. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Means he'll get 20 min cameos against tired defences. If you have and play him he'll haul the odd 5-pointer amongst the 1-points.

  30. The 12th Man
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Will Lacazette start?
    Thinking about a GW 1 punt on him alongside Aubamayang.
    Then..
    WK2. Lacazette > Martial
    WK 3. Aubamayang > Fernandes or KDB
