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!)

GKs:

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

He’s that cute! (6)

Defenders:

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)

Midfielders:

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)

Strikers:

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)

      Goodbye FPL. It's been fun but I intend enjoying my football this season without worrying about who gets an assist etc. Maybe see you next year. Good luck all.

    Which combo for GW1?

    A) Robbo + Adams

    Plenty of teams to copy. This game is easy.

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

      What if you copy the wrong one?

        Well I won't be copying any of theirs as I want a good rank.

          How is your team looking epic?

            Literally just started tinkering for the very first time.

              Probably for the best... weeks of tinkering is a waste. GL

        I'm going for Sam's from FPL Family. I like the Livermore and Lascelles picks.

          Being serious for a second if i was going to copy you'd really have to trust Lateriser.

            I think he's trolling.

            "First off, I’d just like to say that this is my team as of Thursday afternoon and I have no clue how many more moments of inspiration I have ahead of me."

              That's a pretty decent disclaimer for when his team turns out to be completely different 😀

    Feeling good! Mix of differentials and template players:

    McCarthy
    Tierney Robbo Justin Mitchell
    Salah Auba Soucek
    Werner Firmino DCL

    Nyland; Bissouma Foden Taylor

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Decent but Firmino is everything but fantasy gold

      1. mattyb09
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        One week punt as I think he outscores Ings this week. Will become Martial next week.

        1. Houldsworth Hatter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

    2. Agger

          Pogisback

          Bruno will be IN time IMO. Even if he isn't we have Van de beek !!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

      Quick question, any 4.0 defenders looking like they will get minutes this year?

        It's always difficult to know at this stage. There's always one that emerges eventually.

        Mitchell at the start. Ferguson in a few weeks.

        Douglas

        Salah is such a boring pick. Bad form from both him and Liverpool. Tricky fixtures and they don’t destroy teams anymore.

          form is temporary, class is permanent

          I agree. He is a boring pick. Trouble is, if he simply scores a penalty and you don't own him, it's trouble.

          1. Right In The Stanchion
              2 months, 13 days ago

              If Liverpool are stale and get a 1-0 win you’re quids in

              depends if the player you pick instead also scores

            See you tomorrow when he bags a hattrick

          Best 4.5m mid?

            Okay, trick question...

            A) Lucas Moura
            B) ...just kidding there is no one I want more than Lucas Moura 🙂

            Why no love for Lascelles/Newcastle defence?

            1. Mother of Lucas
                2 months, 13 days ago

                Stripes don't match the rest of my outfit.

                  WBA's barcode is optically lovely. Worth a Diangana Pereira double up

                2 months, 13 days ago

                Reece James worth of risk first gameweeks?

                Ot better opt with Egan or Saiss or .....?

                1. Drizz ✅
                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 13 days ago

                  Tommy Egan

                2. Mother of Lucas
                    2 months, 13 days ago

                    ooo Saiss sounds sassy 😉

                  Anyone willing to gamble with Pulisic? Would rather have him than Alli

                  1. Drizz ✅
                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 13 days ago

                    good punt

                      2 months, 13 days ago

                      Alli ever wanted was to be in your team :'(

                    Is Reece James nailed on?
