Last chance to get FFScout Premium Membership for pre-season price

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 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.

SIGN UP FOR THE NEW SEASON HERE


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

We’re continuing to reinvest resources into the site, building a team of talented contributors for the new season (from all of our Career Hall of Fame top three to the returning Mark Sutherns) and working on an exciting new design for the Premium Members Area, complete with new tools and features.

We’re also dishing out £2,500-worth of prizes in the 2020/21 campaign – more details of that available here.

Our video below runs down just some of the benefits that subscribers will enjoy in 2020/21 and previews what you can expect the Premium Members Area to look like after its makeover:



WHAT DO I GET FOR MY MONEY?

Well, you’ll be joining legions of other Fantasy managers by signing up, including former Fantasy Premier League winners Adam Levy, Simon March and Tom Fenley.

Thousands upon thousands of FPL bosses take advantage of our subscriptions and sign up every year, using the stats and tools to aid their Gameweek planning.

PRO PUNDIT ARTICLES

You’ll get exclusive content from some of the best Fantasy managers in the business, including Hall of Fame top three Fábio Borges, Stephen Harrap and Darren Wiles, ex-champion Simon March, five-time top 1k finisher Tom Freeman, three-time top 200 finisher Lateriser and six-time top 5k finisher Zophar.

If that wasn’t enough, Fantasy Football Scout’s founding father, Mark Sutherns, is returning to the site to supply articles and video appearances throughout the season. Again, only Premium Members will get unrestricted access to Mark’s content.

RATE MY TEAM AND PROJECTIONS

Our Projections and Rate My Team tools are both live for the new season, so you can head over there now to start building your teams ahead of 2020/21 and see how many points our algorithm thinks you’ll score.

These features were both refined last year, with RMT’s Professor – aka Chris Atkinson – elaborating on the changes in a Hot Topic.

SEASON TICKER

Also live for the new season is our Season Ticker.

Premium Members can sort by fixture difficulty and find out which teams’ matches rotate well.

Disagree with the Fantasy Football Scout difficulty ratings? Add you own to customise your experience.

FLAT-TRACK BULLY TOOL

Our Flat-Track Bully tool was a new addition last season, with subscribers now able to identify Fantasy assets with good records against specific clubs.

This will help you pinpoint players who perhaps perform better against weaker opposition and even those who thrive against the top teams, like Raúl Jiménez famously did in 2018/19.

HEAD-TO-HEAD COMPARISONS

Compare both teams and players head to head, with over 100 key statistics to study side by side.

PLAYER AND TEAM STATS

There are hundreds upon hundreds of player and team statistics available, which can help guide your Fantasy transfer decisions.

MATCH ANALYSIS

Analysis of every Premier League match (going back to 2011/12!), together with charts which plot average positions and our collection of heatmaps for touches, shots and chances created, among other statistics.

CUSTOM STATS TABLES

Premium Members can also create custom tables based on the data available and share them with other subscribers.

Perhaps the most famous of these is Joe’s Goals Imminent table, which looks to predict which underperforming assets will find the net next.

TESTIMONIES

2018/19 Fantasy Premier League champion Adam Levy was a paid-up Premium Member of our site and he discussed what tools of ours he finds most useful in an interview after his triumph.

In previous seasons we’ve helped FPL winners Tom Fenley and Simon March, while in 2015/16 we were thrilled to see Ed Masters – the winner of that year’s Members’ League – finish third in the overall rankings.

In 2017/18, Paul Gee went one better. He won our Members’ League and finished second, losing out to champion Yusuf Sheikh by just eight points.


Be sure to check out all the other benefits of signing up as a Premium Member here. A full FAQ on our Premium Members’ Area is also available here.

If you’ve any feedback or suggestions of content that you’d like to see added to the Premium Members’ Area, then please feel free to drop us a line at support@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk.

      1. hehe, not Y or N

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years

        KWP starts but you don't put him in your team.

        1. Dthinger
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Right? Why are so many picking him?

          1. Soto Ayam
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 22 days ago

            Good fixtures, is attacking and plays in an defence than improved during the restart

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              Your wrong that he is attacking. With the front 4 Southampton attack with their fullbacks are not required to get in offensive positions.

    2. ZTF
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Nyland & Kwp start

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Steer and Yes

  2. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Best Sou attacking option besides Ings?

    1. Soto Ayam
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      There isn't one. Jwp, Redmond, Armstrong

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        any of Armstrong, Adams or JWP

    2. Root
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      JWP

  3. Srv210
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Has Rodrigo been added yet?

  4. Lucky Z

    TAA | Vinagre | KWP

    Guys, thoughts on this Son + Alli double up?

    1. korbendallas82
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      are you sure Alli is nailed? hehe. Just swapped him out.

    2. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Why not go for the double up. It’s worth a gamble I think.
      I like this draft a lot - all 15 are players I am considering.
      This best bit about it is the 4 - mids plus 8.0 mids this could work this year. It allows you to move to Greenwood Pulisic and maybe Havertz - just some examples or if you save .5 on Auba after a week or 2 you can get to Rashford.
      Why Johnson over say Mitchell?

      1. Lucky Z
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Just fodder with best chance to play... Thought it was Johnson, nah?

    3. Soto Ayam
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Even though Alli is a risk, I like it. Mourinho raved about him as a second striker when he first arrived and he certainly has potential to score well. Not keen on ASM and I rather soucek, .5 extra you reinvest in defence

      1. Lucky Z
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Soucek with awful fixtures...

        1. Soto Ayam
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Form over fixtures haha...nah, i just think he's a better fpl assest. For my team, he'll rotate with mitro or a Def. Could be good to wait to pick him up cheaper in a few gws and maybe his price will drop?

          1. Lucky Z
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Yes probably. Thank you.

  5. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    With big names likely to join the prem that are not yet official ie. Messi, Sancho, Havertz... Current FPL teams could change 3/4 players.
    Something to think about for those considering their teams as GTG.

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      How can it be go to go when it is “tweaked” every few minutes, that will just be some major tweaks.

    2. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      What price do you think Havertz would come in at? Chelsea could have an amazing attack and two might the way to go, but I fear rotation too.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          oof! I was hoping for 8.5 - I think very few will buy him at 9.0 when he's likely to start on te bench GW1

      2. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I think 8.5

      3. Soto Ayam
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 21 days ago

        8.5

      4. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        9.5 to 10. if a mid

      5. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        So there is a spread of 1.5 mil in our choices. Interesting. If he comes in at 9 then I might be tempted but not week 1.

      6. yousunkmybattleship
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        9.0

      7. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 21 days ago

        8.5

        .5 more than Fernandes/Ziyech due to the better league

    3. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I am limiting my side to 1 new arrival. (Werner)

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        So you wouldn't be tempted by Sancho or Messi?

        1. FALSE PROFIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Nope. Unless I sacrifice Werner. Think about it 1st game; what initial gametime they get; never mind will they score points early.

  6. steven8991
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    at 6.0 mil, JWP or Perreira (WBA) ?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Jwp

    2. TheMooyBoys
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Pereira

  7. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    After another few tweaks what the consensus on this

    McCarthy

    TAA VVD Doherty Justin

    Salah Auba Son ASM Armstrong

    Werner

    Nyland Taylor Wickham Davis

    1. fplfansss
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      too heavy on the DF?

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Possibly to start the season yes. But long term I intend have a defence like this.
        VVD to a 4.5 defender allows me to turn one of the 5.5 mids into Greenwood and bench him for GW 1 . Then I would also need to change Taylor out as he blanks.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Ok

    3. jaguar shark
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I kinda like it! Though I’ve got a feeling Liverpool is going to post fewer clean sheets this year...

    4. jaguar shark
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Also I think son to ziyech is worth a gamble if he’s fit.

    5. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Pool performances are not conducive to double defence IMO

        Any suggestions? Werner?

        and got golden boot last season.

        1. The Knights Template
          • 6 Years

          Golden watch this season.

    2. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I wouldn’t be spreading the cash that thin.
      I don’t know what formation this will be. Narrow it down to one or 2 possible formations and create one more fodder bench player while upgrading another, you very rarely need to get 2 or 3 off the bench.

      1. jaguar shark
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        It’s 4-4-3 no?

        1. fplfansss
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          It's basically 343
          With Vinagre ahead of Justin

          1. fplfansss
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            *Taylor

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Fair enough but in that case Taylor doesn’t start GW week 1 so it’s Mitchell or Stephens to start.

    3. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      s = standard
      g = good
      b = bad
      d = different
      All my opinion only
      s s
      b s g s s
      s s g s s
      s d b
      Bad means my opinion only. Vardy could be a placeholder for example

    Hi all. Playing in a game with similar scoring to FPL, where players are fixed for the whole season, which pair of players would score most over that season?
    A: TAA and Saka
    B: Richarlison and Ake
    Thank you

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      A

    2. jaguar shark
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Ohh. Tricky! Not sure I’d pick Saka for a whole season...

    3. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      A but not sure on Saka gametime

  10. jaguar shark
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    I’m confused, why so much love for spurs attack? Ok they have good fixtures, but City, United, Liverpool and Chelsea will all line to score tons of goals while Spurs will go for 1-0 maybe 2. Why are Kane and Son I’m so many teams? Just placeholders?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Placeholders I think.
      I don't like their fixtures either as much as some people it seems.

      1. jaguar shark
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Kane is a pipe dream imo. Of course now that I said that he’ll go off...

    2. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Yes mainly place holders. And yes you have named the 4 top scoring teams and I think Chelsea will score more than utd.

    3. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      They are well priced for placeholders

    4. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I don't consider them placeholders at all. Not yet anyway. Liverpool mids and Auba are the real placeholders.

    5. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      More like 3 GW punt.

  11. Soto Ayam
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Any thoughts on LFC Vs leeds score line in gw1?

    LFC normally get a few goals in their opening fixture, but I've got a hunch Leeds won't be a walkover. Could be a close, low scoring game?

    Any thoughts please?

    2. Silent Friend

      2-0

    3. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      If Leeds do not adapt and stick with their high line.. probably 3-0
      If they would go with a defensive approach.. probably 1-0

      1. Soto Ayam
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 21 days ago

        This is what I'm thinking. Biesla has such a reputation I'd imagine he'll know better than to gun-ho at Anfield

    4. Wild Card this...

      2-0, Leeds won't make it easy but Liverpool's class should have them pull through

    6. Kannbury
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Fancy 5 or 6 - 0 , Salah will get double figures.

        Yes, but that wud need a hit to bring in Greenwood?

          Can wait for GW 4 IMO.
          Transfer window will shut down too

              If not Sancho, someone else.
              But a winger is needed mate.
              I'm pretty sure we'll get one

    Doherty or Davies ? 1 min is 1 mil

    1. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I have Davies currently.
      That extra mil helps.
      Look at it this way for example: (not that I want to double up on Spurs defence)
      Instead Doherty + 4.0
      You can have Davies and Dier.

    Case for Dele Alli

    Just hear me out before you come out with your pitchforks just because he's not a Son or Kane

    Last season he was involved in 14 goals in 21 starts (8g 6a). Not bad at all

    I believe he's primed for a good season under Jose now that he has put the injury woes aside and having good preseason behind his back

    Not to forget he's a Mourinho favorite and will play just behind Kane. Personally think he's gonna thrive in spurs great run of fixtures

    Its not the end of the world if the punt fails due to good price point You can easily downgrade to Greenwood or jump on Ziyech if he settles in Chelsea
    nicely

    1. tc93
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Interesting you say this.. I had Ziyech in my team and I've just changed him for Ali- good price point at 9m- and I'm only looking to keep for one week then I'll move him on for GW2 (for most likely greenwood)

    2. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      There are certainly worse punts

    3. tc93
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      The question I'm asking myself is who's gonna score better? Ali vs Everton or Ziyech vs Brighton

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Was previously on Ziyech but i think he will take a little while to settle in. Sprayed some fantastic passes versus Brighton yesterday but i think id start with Werner only

        Feel like Pulisic will be big miss for opening two games..when he returns we;'ll see much better chelsea attack

        1. tc93
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Yea I've got Werner too- think your logic is sound

    4. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      If he can get close to 150-160 season points then 8.0m is good price but just not sure he can stay healthy for a season.
      not the worst idea to start with him and see how he goes

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        It's not really a good price when you have several forwards at 8.5-9 showing form for 170-200

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Not the worst 3rd midfielder and easy downgrade, but a tricky upgrade

    5. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Alli's good but Spurs opening fixtures aren't great from an offensive point of view so I prefer Ziyech

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Fair enough. im starting with Werner only and waiting till Pulisic is back.

        Pulisic will definitely improve Ziyech appeal

    6. Lalrota
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      If you watched the games last season under Mourinho. Dele Alli at times was literally the Striker with Kane dropping back often. If starting regularly i see him offering better value than Son.

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Spotted the same. Son is may be deployed little wider with Alli occuping more central penalty area touches

        Son is great option but i think Alli will offer better value as you said

      2. tc93
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I agree- I'm only going with him for one week so could be worth a punt!

  17. tc93
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Arsenal Fans.. what's your opinion on Martinez starting? Think he'll keep his spot through the season? From an outsiders standpoint after that performance in the community shield surely he's gotta nail down his spot after that.. could be the buy of the season at 4.5 and that tighter looking arsenal defence

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      According to Arsenal fan, if he signs a new contract, he will start.

      1. tc93

  18. fpork
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    How does this look? The plan is to play 5-3-2 and 4-4-2. I think Antonio's first 5 fixtures aren't as bad as they look, but considering moving to Mitrovic. Auba will most likely become KDB after the first 2 rounds.

    Johnstone
    Doherty, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Lascelles, Walker-Peters
    Salah, Aubameyang, Saka
    Antonio, Werner
    Button- Greenwood - Davis - Bissouma

    1. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Looks good and fairly different
      Not sure on Johnstone and Saka, but agree on Antonio. Worth a punt.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Saka to Soucek and Lascellas to Saiss would be my move.

        Won't be able to play ahead of Wood and Barnes unfortunately...

    2. Amey

      Wood scored a pen ... Good.
      He's my escape root from Mitro & Adams in GW 3/4.
      Now just need one of those 6m to fire 😛

  20. Boberella
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Quick Question DZ please:
    a) Son + Werner
    b) Ziyech + Jimi + 2m to upgrade def/mid

    Team currently:
    McCarthy
    TAA Vinagre Egan
    Auba Mane Son* ASM Soucek
    Werner* Ings

    Bench: Nyland C Taylor Mitchel Brewster

    KDB and Bruno to come in GW2/3

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Jimenez and Werner possible?

      1. Boberella
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Sure. It's possible. I've gone on Ings over Jimi at this stage, based on opening fixtures. Not possible to have all three!
        Would you keep Son with Werner and Jimi then?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          No, no. I meant frontline of Werner, Ings and Jimenez by dropping Son to 4.5m player.

          Between those options, I prefer Son and Werner.

          1. Boberella
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Ok, cool. Thank you. I had tinkered with that big front 3 previously, but the MID looked very light. However, it could be a great punt with many ppl going a more heavy MID.

  21. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Ings or Son?

    1. Og
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Son based on current form

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 21 days ago

        What form? Goals in preseason friendlies in a position he won't play in against Championship opposition?

    2. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Ings

      Ings

      Sonny

  22. funkybuddha
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    i dont get why so many have mitrovic in, he is a walking red card especially with VAR.
    What am i missing about him? was he really that good in the championship?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Only decent option at that price. Its not like we are getting him for lifetime anyway. If he gets a red card, get rid! 😀

    2. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Well, I guess it’s bcz price tag.
      6 mil and has potential to score probably 130ish + pts.

    3. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      He's supposed to have calmed down a little so we probably won't see as many cards.

    4. Soto Ayam
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Agreeably, he's not a standout pick. He just seems the best option in that price range. I fancy him to get more points than ASM, Armstrong, jwp etc. I'll have him as rotating 3rd striker, so hopefully he'll be okay. I do have reservations though as he seems slow as an ox

    5. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Owned him in the past and I'm sure he got more cards than goals.

    6. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      All about price points and team 'efficiency' apparently, and justified by talismen status.

      130 points is miserable for a 0.6. If he doesn't hit the ground running he'll be dropped like a stone and those precious transfers will have to be used drafting in exciting players like Chris Wood, who go whole half seasons without scoring. Mitro plays for Fulham, they play possession football, they're awful to watch, it's not going to work, and it's going to be miserable to watch happen

      Best case scenario for me is that he proves to be acceptable. Not for me when there are far less risky players in the mid priced bracket

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I'd rather go with Wood even with him sitting out GW1. If, as you suggest, he doesn't fire, it's easier to switch to another mid-price striker costing between 6-7m than it is to upgrade a 6m who's falling in price.

        1. Tamagotchi Massacre
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          It's easier to just start with mid price strikers and have the option of sideways or dropping down than to start with budget and be forced into sideways, taking hits or waiting for transfers to accrue so you can then release value from another player (another headache) to step up

          A few people have mentioned it's about efficiency. It doesn't seem like an efficient starting strategy

      2. Wild Card this...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Think your calculator is broken mate 🙂
        130 is not miserable from 6 mil forward.
        Let me remind you - last season
        Just few forwards
        Firmino 9.5 155
        Abraham 7.5 153
        Jesus 9.5 146
        Goalies were good value for that money but you can have only one.
        Few decent defenders and midfielders but no forwards...Ayew for 132 I think and he is also 6 now.

        1. Tamagotchi Massacre
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Why are you comparing him to poor value players, players who dried up or players who are bit part players

          Analysing whole seasons is not going to provide any meaningful data in their cases and nobody in their right mind is considering owning firmino or Abraham this year

          Why aren't you comparing him to actual options like ings, martial or jiminez

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            But we need money elsewhere 🙁

            1. Tamagotchi Massacre
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              Indeed. And that's what's at the heart of it for me. Beyond a couple of essential captain options, MF offers the worst value of all at the top end of the point scoring scale. I think going with a budget upfront to fund additional mids is a mistake this year that people have been fooled into because of reclassification and the glut of options.

              Unless you're freeing up money for VdV or potentially Doherty or a City defender, in which case, I think that's a good move

              1. Amey
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 21 days ago

                Doherty is in as second Premium Defender yeah ..
                But he's expendable ...

                I really like Adams & Wood Actually. Not sure about Mitro though.

                You're right in saying catching their form runs is pain in the ass

                1. Tamagotchi Massacre
                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 21 days ago

                  I'm very interested in Adams if Southampton did go to a two up front, but it would likely mean owning two saints strikers, or not owning ings. And I'm not sure I can stomach either. Ings just hasn't stopped for a year. Was the first name on my squad

                  1. Amey
                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 21 days ago

                    I'm looking at Adams as a cheap ings 😛

    7. Thescaff

    Stick with Doherty or run with a 4.5 and save the 1.5 to upgrade Son>Bruno (without having to downgrade Salah)

    1. NZREDS

      Question mark hehe

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Can work. Which 4.5 are you looking at? If you can stretch upto 5, then likes of Saiss/Egan/Shaw/Davies are strong options.

      1. NZREDS
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        McCarthy (Nyland)
        TAA Doherty KWP Justin (Mitchell)
        Son Salah Auba Soucek (Stephens)
        Werner Ings (Brewster)

        Thoughts appreciated 🙂

        Defence would look too weak downgrading Doherty I suppose

    I don't know about you guys, but does it not seem madness players being allowed to travel abroad on holidays?
    The strict protocols put in place so we could see football again, is about to be wasted.
    The disruption of training and self isolation of players will have an impact on form, and more seriously can result in postponements.
    I am at a total loss on why all the hard work has been wasted.
    Anyone know the positive figures that were released before? Have they stopped testing?

    1. Wild Card this...

        They have to stay in their bubble. As far as I am concerned, national teams should wait. It brings multi clubs together running the risk of virus spread.

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      There is mandatory quarantine if you visit certain countries I believe.

      No way they will put the players on the pitch without testing.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Sure but that is not the point. Testing is one thing but increasing the risk of spread is another.

      I agree - and also with Wild Card This above. If they're trying to decrease the number of coronavirus cases then this seems a no brainer. Over the next few months I'm expecting regular occurrences of players being quarantined and even fixture postponements.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Me too, and I think the way to mitigate against that is to maintain a full active bench. If Brewster gets a loan that solves one bench asset, if a 4m defender can get him self nailed, that would be great. But if neither happen, I'll try to park a trio of 4.5s who are regular starters. There's even a case for Ryan/Button as security although I won't go that far.

    Why have Alli minutes been so low in the last 2 years. Injury or rotation?
    Could be massively underpriced if he can find some form

      Injury followed by rotation

      Mostly due to injuries. Being fit again he is bang on the money at 8.0.

    How sensible is it to have a team that doesn’t include much in the way of bench fodder, so you have the flexibility to swap players in and out rather than be tempted to join the transfer bandwagon and lose points with hits, which is what I tend to do? So think of this as more of a set and forget lineup:

    McCarthy/Ryan
    TAA/Laport/Vinagre/Egan (Mitchell)
    Soucek/Son/Ziyech (Foden/Greenwood)
    Ings/Vardy /Werner

    Is the lineup sensible or should I go for more recognised big hitters and fodder?

      See my post above where I give my reason for it being more important than ever.
