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)

    Is Buur going to start?

      Team news says no, he could though.

    2. KGFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Too much uncertainty there.
      Would rather not go there from the off. Wait and see.

    3. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      I hope so. I may start him over Ferguson

    I think this is my final team

    McCarthy
    TAA - Doherty - Mitchell
    Auba - Salah - Alli - ASM
    Mitro - Werner - Ings

    subs - Button - Bernardo - Gordon - Douglas

    am I good to go?

    1. L S P
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      that DEF is waaaaay too light

  4. Ma Aew
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Antonio+Ward Prowse or Che Adams+ Bowen ?

    1. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      B

  5. Woy_is_back

    Fanteam doesnt have my country of residency listed. Can I still play?

    1. Aidan269
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Yeah there's a betting website that you do it through. Andy talks about it at the end of his let's talk fpl video today

  6. SpagBol
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Which option and why??

    A) Salah + Alli + Vinagre
    OR
    B) Son + Havertz + Robbo

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      B.
      No Salah could be costly.
      Alli offers more value than Son and should be playing just behind Kane. Son's preseason numbers inflated due to playing through the middle.
      Vinagre playing is about 1.0 under value.

      1. TheSteel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        How does Alli offer more value? Son is a far better attacker.

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          1.0 saved and can go with him for points.

        2. ManofKent
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          When Kane isn't playing...

  7. Robin Van Greenwood
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Current def
    Taa, bavies, dallas, Ferguson
    I have 1m itb, is it better if I get tierney? Or a 4.5 like Saliba or KWP and save the 1m?

  8. Francescoli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Any Fantasy Football Hub members able to share how Joshua Bull is lining up GW1?

  9. Hail Hydra
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Who's rotate well with Taylor?

    1. Pigeon
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Leicester and Arsenal

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Wolves I think.

    3. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Saiss

  10. Puntillimon

    will this pandemic signal the end of Kane's early season drought by bypassing his august voodoo? 😀 captain kane it shall be

    1. GloryManUnited

      Riding with you into th sunset

  11. Pigeon
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Salah + Adams or Barnes + Kane?
    Don't plan on captaining Salah

    1. amol
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      No salah is too costly

  12. fcsaltyballs
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Does Harvey Barnes start ?

    1. Robin Van Greenwood
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Yes

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      yup.

  13. Avery78
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Hey guys what is your feedback?

    Mccarthy
    TAA | Van Dijk | BDavies
    JWP | Havertz | Auba © | Son
    Werner | DCL | CWilson

    Button | ASM | Justin | Mitchell

    *I dropped Salah as going with Auba for ©, and I would've moved him to a MUN/MC asset anyway GW2/3 so just spread the money about.
    *Havertz may be Pullisic but I feel Havertz will get more game time in GW1
    *I got a good feeling about DCL with the guys brought in should be able to provide him better
    *Wilson in as I think West Ham are going to fall and with him upfront perfect to smash some.

    Good luck all! so excited

    1. Aidan269
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Love that team. Id drop ASM to a 4.5 and up Davies to Doherty cause Davies is less secure at left back with europa. You've Newcastle covered with Wilson. Love JWP, he's my favourite. Great team and best of luck

  14. SILENTWAR
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Ayling or Dallas?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Neither?

  15. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Is Lewis, ASM and Wilson too much Newcastle?
    Great opening fixtures, Wilson becomes Martial in GW3 and Lewis may get traded to Taylor so would only be temporary.

    1. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Way too much, yeah. Lewis completely unnecessary pick

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        who's a better 4.5 for the initial fixtures before I trade to Taylor?

        1. TheSteel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Justin, lascelles

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Lascelles is also Newcastle?

        2. john25
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          I am also considering Lewis. Do you think him or Lascelles the better pick?

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Lewis for me. WB over CB.
            Do you think 3 is too many when it will only be 1 in about a month?

            1. john25
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              I don't think it's too many. But maybe that's because I like to pick on based on individuals. How many players from one team doesn't really matter to me.

  16. KGFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Which one?

    1. DCL + ASM

    2. Wilson + ASM

    3. Wilson + Doucoure + 0.5

    4. Other combo upto 12.5m?

    Don't have any other Everton or Newcastle players + not someone from WHU.

      Thoughts on Egan? Really like him, returns expected other than CS in the first few GWs? Cheers

        I have him in, good luck bud

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Im not buying Mourinho protecting Aurier for potential transfer. He played 90 in two preseason matches back to back

        2. Bad Kompany
          • 2 Years

          How confident are you that Alli will start every week?

      6. Bad Kompany
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Any news on Bruno quarantining? Is he back or is he likely to miss the first week?

      7. Puntillimon
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        i think i may have overtinkered.

        mccarthy nyland
        trent robbo justin davies mitchell
        rodriguez son havertz ASM bissouma
        werner kane (c) DCL

        reasoning being:

        a) i fancy spurs, chelsea and everton fixtures and think they will do well, not purely looking at first week
        b) dont fancy arsenal
        c) think liverpool will start slow, but chalk up many 1-0 wins along the way

        1. Bad Kompany
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Who are you captaining next week?

          1. Puntillimon
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            depending on this week's performance and likelihood of finishing 90, possibly either DCL or Rodriguez

            1. Bad Kompany
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              I like attacking double ups but I’d want a premium mid for captaincy. Is Justin going to be playing in pereira place or is he now a starter since Chilwell Is gone?

              1. Puntillimon
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 23 days ago

                i like rodriguez range of passing/crosses/corners and with DCL and richarlison heading ability, could be points aplenty if the new guys click early. key word being if

                anyways,
                a) havertz + robbo
                or
                b) salah + taylor (burnley)

                salah's high ownership is a bit risky, havertz may take some time to click in

      8. JURGENAUT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Is Justin worth a 0.5 upgrade to Egan? Can’t decide

        Someone please advise

        Cheers

        1. Avery78
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Depends on if he is playing or on your bench.
          If playing then Egan maybe better for the first 3 GW only
