Team Reveals

Fantasy Football Scout’s best FPL team reveals ahead of Gameweek 1 deadline

As Fantasy Premier League managers search for the best players and best combination of assets for Gameweek 1 of the 2020/21 season, we have collected our Team Reveals all in one place.

The clock is ticking down and everyone in the FPL community is desperate for some answers. Thankfully we have them in abundance.

Fantasy Football Scout will be running exclusive weekly Team Reveals on the site throughout the season (which you can ACCESS HERE), but as it’s the last day before the Gameweek 1 deadline we are publishing a bumper edition. 

We wanted to do something special, by sharing insights from a whole team of leading managers together in one place. Welcome to the best Gameweek 1 Team Reveals…

1. Lateriser12

Three-time top 200 finisher and India’s reigning champion, Lateriser12 is going without Salah, but how has he spread the funds? Premium Members can find out!

2. Simon March

Former FPL winner and four-time top 7k finisher Simon March is also going without Salah. Premium Members can find out why!

3. Darren Wiles

Currently sat third in the FFS Career Hall of Fame, Darren Wiles is going light up-front this season, but which mid-price forwards have taken his fancy?

4. Az

Co-host of the Scoutcast and FPL Black Box, Az has gone for a 4-3-3 formation in light of Blank Gameweek 1’s awkward nature.

5. Andy

With six top 20k finishes to his name, Andy Mears, our video manager, is eyeing up a Chelsea double-up for the start of 2020/21.

6. Zophar666

Recorded before Ziyech’s pre-season injury, this team reveal video from a seven-time top 10k finisher reveals a Chelsea double-up combined with lavish spending elsewhere.

7. Gianni Butticè

Author of Fantasy Premier League: Unlocking the Secrets to a Top 1% Finish, Gianni is going for the bold approach of a triple-up on Arsenal this season.

8. Karam

Karam has gone for the rather bold approach of tripling-up on Liverpool… in defence!

9. Sam Bonfeld

Fresh from a 3k-finish in 2019/20, Sam has somehow managed to get FOUR players priced £10.5m or higher into her team.

10. David Munday

Fantasy Football Scout editor David is toying with the inclusion of Harry Kane this season.

11. Neale Rigg

Fantasy Football Scout’s deputy editor Neale has considered going with a 4-4-2 formation to accommodate investment in Manchester United from the start.

12. Stephen Harrap

Meanwhile, the second-placed FFS Career Hall of Famer, Stephen Harrap has opted for a decidedly puzzling line-up (see what we did there?), choosing to semi-reveal his intended starting squad in cryptic crossword style.
The first person to correctly identify the squad in the comments will earn a Premium Membership (and our eternal admiration!)


DJ could start a really hollow thought, and not finish, to get into him. (8)

He’s that cute! (6)


Is that the news of his arrival I hear? (6)

Thanks to Algeria’s opening man. (3)

He’s got the fish despite not ever angling. (7)

A spider’s home brew could be missing him? (8)

Sounds like he’s not going to pass, but I won’t give him an F! (6)


He has, alas, a broken heart. (5)

He’s part of the direction to a religious king. (6)

Own a stats language on the top of zooming him. (7)

Two snakes, beginning outside, are around me, man. (8)

He likes a bite out of a sandwich between his two apples. (4)


He is a clown, or mistaken with a grand premier. (5)

They say he needs plates to go from left to wright. (6)

He performs headlessly; a cat painting half a funeral. (4-2-7)

      i think its a toss up between rodrigo and mitro . rodrigo is the better all around player in a more fluid side though , he started for spain against germany too .

    Checked fixtures for C.Taylor in first 8 GWs:

    1. Blank
    2. Away
    3. Home fixture with SOU
    4. Away
    5. Away
    6. Tottenham home
    7. Chelsea home
    8. Away

    Which gives GW3 only comfortably playable. Better go with Lascelles IMO. Your thoughts?

      kwp , lascelles , justin , vinagre all better options

    Hey legends, need your help!

    TAA Davies Swiss Mitchell
    Salah Auba(c) Alli ASM
    Werner Ings
    Bench: Nyland Bissouma Taylor Davis
    ITB: 1.0M
    Plan: Ings to become Martial. Extra 0.5 can be used to upgrade Alli to Chelsea mid

    TAA Doc Saiss Mitchell
    Salah Auba(c) JWP ASM
    Werner Vardy
    Bench: Nyland Bissouma Taylor Davis
    ITB: 0.5M
    Plan: Vardy to become Martial. The 1.5 overall to be used to upgrade JWP to Greenwood.

    Two questions:
    1. Which team is better?
    2. Worried about the forward line. Any suggestions on how to improve?

    Guy in my mini league has Salah and TAA on his bench .... and Anguissa (1 point) and Bernardo (Brighton) in his starting 11 ... LOL ... he swears blind that at no point were the Liverpool boys on his bench .... opening week ruined .... hacked account or a bug he cries ... I just can’t see anyone doing this intentionally. Cue angry email to PL Towers crying foul play!
