Mini League Mate

Fantasy Football Scout partners with Mini League Mate for 2020/21

We’re delighted to announce a new arrival to the Scout Network today, in the form of Mini-League Mate, a smart new service designed to make the most of any Fantasy Premier League mini-league.

Established by the Fantasy-obsessed Jory brothers, the service provides an invaluable weekly update on all the vital data, points and bragging rights delivered directly to the mailboxes of every manager in your mini-league.

It’s split into two parts – the first being ‘The Deadline Day’ mail, which is sent straight after the deadline ahead of the kick-off and allows you to easily see exactly how the different teams in your mini-league are lining up, including interesting data such as most transferred in/out, most captained and average starting XI/formation.

Then, once the last ball has been kicked in anger, you get the real meat in the form of ‘The Dossier’, a stat-packed breakdown that not only allows you to easily see whose captain pick came off (and who chose very poorly) but actually provides an insightful tool to plot the coming week, identify differentials and hopefully overhaul your opponents.

More specifically, this means charts and statistics detailing: Leaderboard Deep-Dive, Mini-League vs the World, Points Breakdown, Manager of the Week, Biggest Riser and Faller, Best Players in League this Gameweek, Best and Worst Transfers Made, Bandwagons, Squad Value Tracker, Chips Tracker and the Mini-League Template Team.

You’ll also be provided with some fun awards to aid social-bragging rights, including the desirable ‘On a Hot Streak’ and ‘The Maverick’, as well as the slightly less sought-after ‘Lord of the Dullards’.

Crucially, only one person in the mini-league needs to register and then share the relevant link with everyone (or, as some people are doing, choose not to share and keep all the insights for yourself!)

Want to give it a go?

There are multiple packages on offer, ranging from £1 a week for the basic Deadline Day service to the ultimate ‘Sheikh’ option for personal treatment, but our recommendation is the ‘Set and Forget’ – offering the best value deal for the whole season as a one-off fee of £19 (N.B. they have just moved to Patreon and so are still working out the kinks, but as outlined in the description, you will only be charged once if you went for this!)

To check it out, simply click the link here and don’t forget to mention ‘FFS’ as the place you found out.


What the makers say

Mini League Mate’s founder, Logan Jory, explains his inspiration:

For one of my mini-leagues, we used to have stats and awards on our Gameweek in an Excel sheet with all our faces superimposed on real Premier League managers’ bodies, which provided so much entertainment on our WhatsApp group that we thought other people would surely enjoy this type of companion service.

To us, Mini League Mate is a social and fun service at its core. There are plenty of tools and articles out there for an FPL manager to use to make more informed picks (like the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area), but we wanted to enhance the fun, rivalry side of the game that we love – partly because we aren’t particularly good managers!

    McCarthy
    TAA Robertson Walker- Peters Davis
    Auba Mane Saka ASM Son
    Werner

    Nyland, Mitchell, Wickham, Davis,

    Is it worth a -4 Gameweek 1
    Auba & Son out
    KDB & Fernandes in

    Iv got 1 million in the bank and can’t afford the moves if they price move

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

      I meant Gameweek 2

  2. FantasyHero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    A. Davies & DCL
    B. Doherty & Mitro

    And why?

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      B
      Doherty offers both attacking and clean sheet potential.
      Mitro has penalties.

    2. Werner Bremen
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      B. Doherty > Davies
      Mitro > DCL

      1. Fiqz Fariss

          Lol

  3. Super Saints

    1 month, 10 days ago

    How did I not know about the KWP Dallas rotation, sorted!

    A. Ayling
    B. Dallas?

    1. Bambi
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      KWP and C.Taylor rotation is nice too

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Not GW2

        1. Bambi
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          to answer your original question - I prefer Dallas - I can see him playing every minute this season, some games in midfield too and some maybe right wing. He had better underlying attacking stats last year (source: whoscored):

  4. Bambi

    Anyone else going for Son and keeping 1.5 in the bank for Bruno GW2?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Lots

    2. Z
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I am....but i think that Son is not place holder, so i will give him some time

    3. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Yep, me!

    4. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Camzy will tell you Son is not a placeholder 🙂

      (Lots of people are. It's template i guess)

      1. Bambi
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        the way I see it is that if Son isn't a placeholder then most will have Salah and Auba who could also make way - better to be in a scenario with more options

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Yes Bambi
          You're right. I have Salah as Bruno placeholder

      2. Z
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        He is not

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Hi CamZy 🙂

      3. Hot Toddy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Any player can be a placeholder if one wishes them to be. Dont want Son, but target player has a blank and Son is getting sold no matter what he does in gw1, then Son is a placeholder.

    5. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Personally think Salah to Bruno + 1.5m is better in GW2.

  5. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Anyone going Ferguson over Mitchell?

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

      Yes, just in case the WC button isn't hit after GW4.

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Na but don't think either will play to be honest

    3. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Yeah, I’m sticking him on the end of my bench in anticipation of him taking Wards spot when he’s fit.

    4. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Hope we will get date of his return tmrw, than will decide

    5. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Yes, don't need them to play at the beginning and long-term Ferguson has bigger chance of playing

  6. adstomko
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Which pair?

    A) McCarthy & Egan
    B) Ramsdale & KWP

    1. Werner Bremen
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I'm on B

    2. Dosh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I've gone Ramsdale and Bertrand

    3. Dosh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  7. Arsenal USA FC

  8. antoinehude
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    What do you think guys?

    McCarthy
    Alexander-Arnold / Robertson / Van Dijk / Walker-Peters
    Aubameyang (c) / Son / Havertz
    Werner / Calvert-Levin / Adams

    GW2
    In: Bruno Fernandes / De Bruyne
    Out: Aubameyang / Son

    1. Werner Bremen
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Why would you get Auba out when he playa WH at home? Even for a hit...
      You can get KDB GW3

      1. antoinehude
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        I’m scare of a price change..

        I don’t know if KDB and Bruno Fernandes can get more expensive without playing but with many new owners..

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

          Iv got the same problem and am thinking the same

  9. MoSalalalalalalalalah
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Steer clear of Shelvey because of injury doubts and revert back to ASM?

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

      Just the first four words will do.

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Their stats last season are almost the same actually, Shelvey's might even be better

  10. Stoichkov#8
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Better pair:

    a) Saiss + Davies (442)
    b) KWP + Mitrović (343)

    1. BucketHead
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      B

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      B

  11. ZTF
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    McCarthy (Nyland)
    Justin TAA Davies Ampadu (C.Taylor)
    ASM Salah Auba (C) Son (Fernandes)
    Mitrovic Brewster (Watkins)

    Thoughts on this lot

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Different

  12. You've got red on you.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Any ideas of how to alter my template team for the better?

    McCarthy
    Trent - Justin - Mitchell
    Auba - Salah - Son - Soucek
    Werner - Ings - Mitrovic

    Subs: Nyland - Gordon - Taylor - Vinagre

  13. Z
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    It is just my opinion, but i think that most of people are overtinking about Manchester clubs. I will not make any transfers until GW3, then i ll (mby) make 2 free transfers.
    This season there are simply too much good playera and we cant get them all

  14. Herman Toothrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Should Fabio Silva get plenty of game time, early subs and cameos I am expecting.

    I am wanting a bench striker that should get minutes

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

      Better to find the extra 0.5m and take one of them imo

  15. JoelyG
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Sorry for repost!
    Main Q for me is Son worth extra mil over Alli?
    Antonio worth a 1 week punt vs New?

    GTG?

    3m itb

    McCarthy
    TAA Egan Justin Davies
    Salah ASM Alli Auba
    Antonio Werner

    (Biss, Brewster, Ferguson)

    Plan is GW2 Salah to Bruno and maybe Antonio to Martial (or whoever is hot)
    Having money itb means I can upgrade ASM to 7.5 in future.

    Thanks

    1. Z
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      3M itb is waste....just my opinion

  16. BucketHead
    • 7 Years

    A. Soucek with a 4.5 Def
    B. Belerin with a 4.5 mid

    1. Z
      • 3 Years

    2. Amey

      Brighton

    3. lugs
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      with Berge probably out, you could do worse than a punt on Ampadu

  22. PogBruno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Best 5.0m def
    Saiss/Coady/Egan/Shaw/anyother?

              Nuno press would help us a lot bro.

    3. BucketHead

      Belerin?

  23. Captain_Shirokov
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    A) Egan, ASM, Wilson
    or
    B) Mitchell, Havertz, Davis

    Thoughts?

  24. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Keane + McCarthy

    Pickford (I know) + KWP

    Which one? Backing Everton to keep clean sheets with Doucoure and Allan helping secure the defense.

    1. Better Call Paul
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      The second I prefer even if it’s a more rogue pick

      Pickford is predicted to have a great few GWs ahead to

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 10 days ago

        What's the prediction calculator? Could definitely pick up save points and BPS.

    2. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      B - Keane not nailed

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Why's that? Holgate is injured.

  25. Vikram Solanki
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    try a find a hole in this:

    McCarthy - Nyland
    TAA - Dier - Saiss - Justin - Ferguson
    Salah - Auba - Son - ASM - Bissouma
    Werner - DCL - Adams

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Looks strong...

      Saiss not nailed now with Marcel though

      1. Better Call Paul
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Saïss will start

  26. Coys96
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Thoughts?

    McCarthy - Nyland
    Trent - Digne - Dier - Vinagre - Justin
    Auba - H.Barnes - Pereira - Podence - Reed
    Kane - Werner - Ings*

    *1 week placeholder for Martial

    1. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Think Son & 7m striker is better than Podence & Kane

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        I like Mitro for 6 so it would be Kane & Reed or Son & Mitro

    2. Z
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Mid is too week for my taste.
      I personaly like very much Barnes

  27. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Tuning back in I find the group think about double Chelsea a touch scary.

    Brighton have had a great window by doing not very much at all and are a settled side. Chelsea are in complete flux and no one has a clue really about who plays. Zero preseason messed up by COVID quarantine and IB. Aren’t Liverpool rather handy in defence?

    What’s going on?

    1. Bambi
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I think part of the appeal of Werner is the ability to easily get Martial. Havertz/Pullisic can easily go down to emerging bandwagons too. Wouldnt double up though

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      People are going mad. Let them.
      I'm on my Pulisc 🙂

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Omg I want Pulisic too

    3. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I understand having Werner but not the mids. So much doubt re game time, positions etc. Gw3 for a mid imo.
