Scout Picks

Scout Picks features Manchester United triple-up for FPL Gameweek 2

It is the red side of Manchester that the Fantasy Football Scout editorial team are targeting for Gameweek 2 of Fantasy Premier League.

Despite the return of both of the city’s clubs, only one of them has taken our fancy. While Manchester City face the division’s best defence since Gameweek 25 in Wolves, we have avoided their assets entirely, to facilitate a triple-up on Manchester United instead.

As ever, the best XI has been chosen using the Scout Squad submissions from earlier this week, this time lining up in a 3-4-3 formation and coming in at £81.0m, £2.0m underneath budget.

Goalkeeper

Illan Meslier (£4.5m) gets the nod in the Scout Picks XI this weekend as Leeds prepare to host Fulham. The Cottagers offered little in their Gameweek 1 meeting with Arsenal, while Leeds are likely to be boosted by the return of club captain and key centre-back Liam Cooper. The last time Fulham visited Elland Road they were seen off by a 3-0 scoreline as Marcelo Bielsa’s men kept more clean sheets against last season’s Championship opposition than any other side.

Defenders

Lucas Digne’s (£6.0m) impressive display against Spurs has drastically increased the attention on  him for Gameweek 2, especially with newly-promoted West Bromwich Albion coming to Goodison Park. The Baggies did not offer much threat against Leicester last time out, while Carlo Ancelotti’s signing of Allan appears to have had an instant impact on Everton’s defensive credentials. As a result, every member of our Scout Squad panel selected Digne as the best defender for Gameweek 2.

Luke Shaw (£5.0m) is the pick of the Manchester United defenders as they prepare to host Crystal Palace. The Eagles were the Premier League’s second-lowest scorers in 2019/20 while Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men have kept nine clean sheets since Gameweek 25 last season, the joint-second-best in the division. Shaw played in a recent friendly against Aston Villa, so looks likely to retain the first-choice slot at left-back this term.

James Justin (£4.5m) rewarded his owners and the Scout Squad panel in Gameweek 1 with a nine-point haul in the win over West Bromwich Albion. With another favourable fixture coming up in Gameweek 2, a home meeting with Burnley, it’s as you were for his berth. While his colleague Timothy Castagne was more adventurous throughout the game, Justin grew into proceedings in the second-half, winning one of Jamie Vardy’s penalties.

Midfielders

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m) was overwhelmingly the most popular midfielder in the Scout Squad selections this week, chosen as the best option in this position by all four pundits. 16 of his 27 attacking returns (59.2%) came at home last season, while 22 of them were recorded against sides outside the traditional top-six. Ever reliable at the Emirates Stadium against so-called lesser opposition, Aubameyang faces a West Ham defence that conceded 10 shots in the box against Newcastle, the joint-third-worst of any other side in Gameweek 1.

Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m) comes straight back into the Scout Picks XI at the first time of asking. After just 14 Premier League appearances, he already has 16 attacking returns to his name and averages 8.4 points per game. It was a tight contest between the Portuguese and colleague Marcus Rashford, each Manchester United asset receiving two votes each. In the end, we went with the former, on account of the fact that he comes into Gameweek 2 with greater ownership, as well as his role in penalty kicks.

James Rodriguez (£7.5m) looked impressive for Everton in their first match of Gameweek 1, creating more chances than any other midfielder on the opening round of action. West Bromwich Albion come to Goodison Park having conceded the second-highest number of shots so far this season, perhaps the perfect match-up for Rodriguez to get his first attacking returns of 2020/21.

Jack Harrison (£5.5m) is our chosen Leeds attacker for the meeting with Fulham. He caught our eye in the defeat at Anfield, registering more touches in the final third than any of his colleagues, as well as finding the back of the net. Harrison scored and assisted the last time Fulham came to Elland Road too.

Forwards

 1

Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) received three votes from our Scout Squad panel for Gameweek 2 after his double-figure haul against West Bromwich Albion. While the Leicester forward was largely quiet outside of the penalties that came his way, Gameweek 1 highlighted the benefit of owning a spot-kick taker in a team with pace and threat in wide areas. The last time Burnley visited the King Power Stadium, Vardy was on hand to find the back of the net.

Anthony Martial (£9.0m) was a big fan of home comforts last season, 11 of his 17 goals scored at Old Trafford. Throwing seven assists into the mix, it meant that 18 of his 26 attacking returns (69.2%) came in home matches. That led to three of our Scout Squad pundits handing him a place in their selections for Gameweek 2, when Crystal Palace come to town.

Callum Wilson (£6.5m) has been blessed with two of his favourite opponents at the start of his time at Newcastle. The former Bournemouth man has an admirable scoring record against West Ham, which he extended by netting at the London Stadium in Gameweek 1, in a match which could have yielded more rewards. Brighton are the perfect side for Wilson to face next. In four Premier League starts against the Seagulls he has recorded three goals and two assists.

SUBSTITUTES

Emiliano Martínez (£4.5m) could be an excellent addition to the ranks at Aston Villa. During Project Restart, only Tim Krul managed more saves than him, while Dean Smith’s men were in the division’s top five for fewest big chances conceded across the same period.

Luke Ayling (£4.5m) looks to be a key outlet for Leeds, which could come in handy in a game they are more likely to be on the front foot in. Against Liverpool, he received seven passes in the final third, the joint-second-most among his colleagues.

Jamal Lewis (£4.5m) impressed in Newcastle’s 2-0 win at West Ham, as the Magpies limited the quality of their opponents’ chances. They were one of just four teams not to concede a big chance in Gameweek 1.

Ryan Fraser (£6.0m) got his Newcastle career up and running by scoring a key EFL Cup goal midweek and, after coming off in the second half, looks ready to be involved against Brighton. His link-up with Wilson at Bournemouth was well-documented, and there’s no reason they cannot continue that at St. James’ Park.

THE CAPTAIN

Who are the best captain options for FPL Gameweek 36+?

The Scout Picks captain is chosen using a four-way vote between our Scout Squad pundits.

Because the use of Fantasy Football Scout data is used so heavily in this process, the skipper we choose each Gameweek is known only to those with a valid Fantasy Football Scout subscription and revealed to the public only when the deadline has passed.

Here’s how we voted for Gameweek 2:

THE COMMUNITY CHAMPION

Each week, one of the Fantasy Football Scout community takes on the Scout Picks by pitting their chosen XI against ours.

The Community Members who beats our team by the biggest margin over the course of the campaign will win a £100 Amazon Voucher and a place in our Moderators and Contributors League for the following season.

Boleyn Boy was the first to take on the Scout Picks this year, losing out by a scoreline of 66 points to 34. That means a 1-0 lead for the editorial team after Gameweek 1, but it’s AA33 up this time around.

They have gone for a 3-4-3 line-up of: Martínez; Tierney, Ayling, Dallas; Mané, Rashford (vc), Son, Willian; Lacazette (c), Jesus, Calvert-Lewin.

      Digne looks set to rise and Son set to fall is part of the reasoning too.

    6. cravencottage

    1. SL8

      Richa

  12. BenDavies
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Think Son could punish sellers against Southampton. Saints are looking terrible, granted Spurs didn't look great against Everton or Plovdiv but Son is still clinical.

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 1 day ago

      indeed, brace inbound

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Are you going to play mate?

      Everytime I sell Son he scores and I've sold him for Bruno

    3. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Quite possibly, we know he has the talent. Spurs rarely put him in a position to use it though which is the main problem. I've just take a hit for Son and Vinagre out to Greenwood and Digne.

  13. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    No replies sorry

    Guys an interesting thought/suggestion..

    Ryan
    Taylor taa kwp vinagre Ferguson
    Salah auba son asm souchek
    Martial Werner

    Justin is rising and vinagre dropping..so is it wise to do vin to justin for a hit especially he has good fixtures and be playing until October end.Vinagre needs to go anyway..whats your thoughts?

    1. HODGE
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Yes team value early on will pay off later and Vinagre has to go

  14. sminkypinky

    My team is crap this week but these weeks happen. Got to fight the urge against wc since I really don't see the point in hits with this team since all my funds are tied. Opinions?

    Reed
    TAA Robbo Bavies
    Mo ASM Auba James
    Mitro Che Werner

    Mccarthy Reed Kwp Mitchell

      Your fine..

      1. sminkypinky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Probably not but it is what it is. Cheers though!

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      That's a good team.

      1. sminkypinky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Basing on last week ASM, Bavies and bench needs to change at least.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Maybe but that is definitely not a WC worthy team. Seems a bit off this week because a lot of them are playing against each other. Just like mine - I have 7 such players. Just one of those weeks.

    3. FPL_trail_runner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Reckon Auba (c) will keep you above water. But yes most of your other picks will blank most likely ( davies, ASM, Mitro, adams). Werner will be a nice captain next week but you need to slowly move out at those 4 over next weeks.

      Or you could WC 🙂

      Im on this after a decent 75 points start
      Meisler
      Digne, Shaw, Justin, Ayling
      Hamez, Auba, Rashford
      Martial, Vardy, Jimi
      4m, Saiss, Podence, Bissouma

      With Werner and Sterling in for Auba + Vardy next week.

      1. sminkypinky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        That is tasty! With good plans to boot. On my best season i wildcarded early on. Nowadays I'm too cautious. Will see tomorrow morning. That looks just so good.

        1. FPL_trail_runner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Cheers, yes its super tempting.

          Also gives me the option to simply go Auba to Salah if Salah is really on it. Since city do still have some tricky fixtures.

          I like the idea of taking the money out of Martial + Werner eventually to get more Liverpool when fixtures turn ( United and Chelsea get harder as Liverpools ease)

  15. Bubz

    Have only just seen the Jota to Liverpool news. That's so random

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 1 day ago

      they signed him? Oddly yestrday I was thinking about Jota>Spurs would that work

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Apparently the deal is very close to being done

      2. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Jose would turn him into Lee Cattermole.

    2. sminkypinky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Hope not true...

    3. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Yes, warming the pine, making the halftime tea and slicing the oranges.

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Is he supposed to be back up for Firmino or something? I don't really understand the transfer

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Me neither, mate. I guess that's logical since Brewster's going on loan and that leaves Origi.

    4. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Back up on the wings.. Much needed

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Can't see him performing that role very well

  16. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Think this will be my WC team if I press the button:

    Martinez
    TAA | Digne | Taylor
    Auba | Bruno | Rodriguez | Fraser | Soucek
    Kane | Martial

    Steer | KWP | Mitchell | Davis

    GW3, Auba to Salah

    Thoughts? Perhaps there’s a potentially better 4.5 pairing than Taylor/KWP?

    Thanks

      • 9 Years

      Kept waiting and waiting for news. Just now did Alli to James. Ofc suffered a price fall. My own fault.

        Me too - I kind of am still under the impression he will start but just unsure right now of whether to risk it!

      Probably, but maybe not. That's the best you're gonna get I'm afraid.

    I currently have Son and Antonio and dont know whether to bring in Bruno Fernandes and Brewster or Rashford and Wilson, both are a 4 pt HIT.

    PS. I really want Wilson as he has scored three goals and two assists in his last four appearances against Brighton but scared of not having Bruno also.

    Which option would you recommend?

      The latter

    Jota to Liverpool, good for Podence?

      Well, yes

    2. Bubz

      Couldn't be much better for Podence

    I wonder what Bale's price will be?

    1. n-doggg
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      9.5?

    2. FOO FIGHTER

      Can't see many takers

    3. Bartowski
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Probably 9.5 but it should really be 8.5 if not 7.5.

      Too high for someone not intrested in playing football.

      Will get him in my team if he is 6.5
      Anything above that is wait and watch.

      Yep. As Son will. That's bad for me. (SON)

    Am I going to get shot down dead if suggest this as a potential transfer?

    Salah and Pereira ---> Rashford and James Rod

    1. soup natsi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      brave for sure so I won't shoot you

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 1 day ago

      For a hit? Hell no

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Can work for 1 week actually. But then you will need to find a way to get Salah back immediately.

      1. soup natsi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Surely you'd rather have him against Chelsea than Arsenal?

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Against both to be honest. Salah, KDB and TAA are going to be permanent fixtures in my team. But Rash and JRod might work better than Salah and Pereira this week.

  26. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 1 day ago

    I guess it is better to wait and see GW2 to choose between Sterling or KDB for GW3 🙂

      I doubt we're going to learn much more than we already know. My decision is made, but both are justified.

    Jota hugged the LHS... Vinagre was basically a few yards behind him... could this move to LFC mean Vinagre claims a space in midfield with whomever else getting shunted up to the front line? Really want to hear Andy and Az's thoughts since I believe they both have Ruby V. in their teams.

    1. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Podence will just take Jota's place? Has nothing to do with Vinagre

  28. St Pauli Walnuts

    With Vinagre and Son possibly dropping tonight, I’m considering a hit to Digne and Greenwood. I don’t do many hits but means I’d play Digne over KWP so if Everton get CS (obviously much more likely than Southampton, but not a given) it’s paid for itself and anything else would be a bonus. Big advantage is I don’t lose any value for my planned WC next week which is pretty important at this stage of the season with 0.1 being like 0.5. Digne likely rising and if he has a good week then could maybe turn a profit as he’d probably rise again week after, or I’d possibly keep in WC but he’s not in my drafts at the moment. The upsides seem worth the risk for a 4 point hit to me.

    Madness or logical?

    2. Bubz

      I did Vinagre to Digne -4 for what it's worth

      Hamezzzzz! (no idea just pure hope)

    2. soup natsi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Siggy and Richie, in this order. We don't know abou Hamez boi yet

    3. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Sig when on the pitch, unconfirmed otherwise but I think Hamez will get them and maybe even when Sig on anyway. He's the main man.

    4. Stand By Mee
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      JRod or Siggy I guess

    Why wasn't Martial involved in the Villa friendly? Was he recovering from injury?

    Trying to decide between him or Werner. Can't afford both unfortunately.
