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)

      Will Adams get a similar return as Ings?

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        HahhahahahHHhAhHhahahahA

        If only it was that easy.

      3. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        no. Ings will beat him by 10+ goals (Southampton fan)

      4. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Obviously not. You can say: If Ings scores in 2 out of 3 games, Adam will score in 1 out of 3.

      5. jaguar shark
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Less

      6. All about the galacticos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        the clue is in the price

      7. The Dance
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Why not? Ings had a freak season, Adams looks good

      8. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Like for real, one guy almost won the golden boot, the other couldnt displace Shane Long

        Love preseason!!!

    • Puntillimon
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

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

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        A

      2. Puntillimon
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Alrdy have TAA

    • Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Is Alli nailed?

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Probably.

      2. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Should be

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

      HEy DZ...best 9.5 GK combo?

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Lloris

      2. Jude Rooney
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Doesn't seem like the DZ this morning!

      3. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Ramsdale McCarthy (if rotating)

        Lloris Button (if not)

      4. ivantys
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Ramsdale Mccarthy for 38 GWs

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

          No need to spend more than 8.5 😉

        • The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Why on earth would you spend that much

      5. Jude Rooney
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Think he will become first choice but got a feeling Doherty won't start GW1 anyone agree?

        1. Rust Cohle
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Why?

          1. Jude Rooney
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Not kicked a ball for Spurs yet

        2. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Its football not rocket science, really depends if Mou wants to make a statement to Aurier.

        3. ivantys
            1 month, 9 days ago

            I would be more confident if he cost more

          • Sahil.....
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            If you want a spurs defender go for davies his nailed

            1. Jude Rooney
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              He is but Doherty will be granite in the Aurier role

        4. Logic
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Seems Adams is ahead of Mitro. But why?

          1. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Because Southampton > Fulham

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              +1
              But not enough talking about Michy

            2. Winston.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              this

          2. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Because he scored 2 in the last gameweek everyone remembers

        5. KGFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Which is a better pick ignoring price?

          1. Bowen
          2. Soucek

          1. Dthinger
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            bowen

          2. NABIL - 1 season 1der
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            1

          3. Rust Cohle
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Bowen, no doubt

        6. Lalrota
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Very interested in knowing laterisers team.

        7. SpagBol
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          It's legit so close....

          Which option and why?

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

          p.s already have TAA

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            A, easy.

            1. SpagBol
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              why A?

          2. The Son-dance Kid
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            I'd go B. In my opinion:
            Salah outscores Son
            Havertz outscores Alli
            Robbo outscores Vinagre by a country mile
            Depends on rest of team of course.

        8. Lovemeapunt
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Howcome I see so many Adams in teams? No cash? Spot filler?

            1. The Dance
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              He’s good and has the fixtures?

            Alright, an Aussie trying to get a team together did some quick research but don't really know the buys and who to get budget wise or form wise any help appreciated

            Pope / Ryan

            Wan-Bissakka / Lowton / Ayling / Vinagre / Lewis

            Auba / Salah / KDB / Noble / Stephens

            Werner / Rodrigo / Mitrovic

            Thanks in advance!

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

              If you are Aussie ditch pope and go Ryan all the way

              Not keen on noble or Rodrigo

              1. Francescoli
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                Ryan could play second fiddle to Martinez if the rumours are correct.

                Avoid the headache and go McCarthy and Steer.

                1. The Suspended One
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 9 days ago

                  I highly highly doubt Brighton is paying 20mil and 100k wk for Martinez

            • 1 Year
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Lascelles or Justin?

            1. Dthinger
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              lascelles

            2. Lovemeapunt
                1 month, 9 days ago

                Justin for me...

            3. Francescoli
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              Which of these two players is most nailed: Holding or Saliba?

              1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                H

              2. Rust Cohle
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                Saliba long term. Holding doesn’t fit into Arteta’s plans notwithstanding the decent performances in the short term.

              3. Rust Cohle
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                Arsenal’s matches are kinda garbage after the first two GWs. I wouldn’t want either.

                1. Dthinger

                  two tough matches, but holding and saliba are cheap enough to bench

                  I’m looking at an early gw3-4 wildcard so am trying to attack the first two fixtures.

                  1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 9 days ago

                    Nketiah then 😉

              A. Saiss + Bissouma or
              B. Vinagre + Soucek ?

              Worth getting Soucek for the season despite of the fixtures..?

              Trying to remove Jimenez and it looks like this now.

              Johnstone
              Taa Kwp Vinagre Mitchell
              Auba SON Pulisic JWP
              Kane DCL

              Button Martial Dallas Lemina

              Originally has Alli+ASM+Jimenez instead of Son+JWP+DCL

              Which is better to go?

                A or E with Soucek

                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 9 days ago

                  Have Soucek. Ceballos will play this week, then sit on bench forever incase of E

                  1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 9 days ago

                    Play Soucek.. better get a 4.5

              I don’t see Ben White in any teams. Isn’t he the next big thing? At 4.5 may be a good shout? Potter’s Brighton aren’t that bad

              1. Gabbiadini
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                I don't love Brighton's first 4 fixtures.

              2. Holmes

                Can't see any clean sheets for them in first 5 games

                1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 9 days ago

                  We'll see 😉

                • 8 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                He's the reason I'm getting Ryan

              Who else is going without any spurs players

                I got 4 of them lol

                • 9 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                Definitely considering it. Only Son is tempting me.

            14. Gabbiadini
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              McCarthy
              TAA | Vinagre | Burr
              Auba | Salah | Alli | ASM
              Werner | Ings | Wilson

              Nyland | Mitchell | Gordon | Taylor

              Are Vinagre and Burr too risky together for just a week...? Maybe it is if neither Vinagre nor Burr play but I can't see that happening (hence why I am picking Vinagre), so surely it is no more dangerous than those covering Taylor with Mitchell as he's my sub?

                Mitro, WHU fixtures are dreadful to start with

                Interesting. I went with Mitro. Read an earlier comment up top going with Antonio. And I doubt my decision
