The Complete Guide to Scout’s tips and advice for FPL Gameweek 2

Welcome to the Fantasy Football Scout Guide to Gameweek 2, don’t forget the new normal deadline of 11:00 BST – half an hour earlier than last season.

Captain set? Transfers made?

Before delving into the nitty-gritty of the best advice for the next round of matches, we received a welcome reminder this week on how to enjoy FPL.

If you find yourself clicking a little too often on transfers page, Community Member and Mindfulness trainer DomWatts23 explained why:

We get a dopamine hit released in our brain every time we look at our team and remember that we might be rewarded in the future for those players doing well this weekend.

– Dom Watts

Which is of course exactly what we want but, realistically, doesn’t always happen.

Dom’s thoughtful article is full of tips that help put FPL in perspective, and could possibly improve your decision-making process. 

And remember, even the best can have a bad Gameweek, as three-time top-200 finisher Lateriser proved with a below-average 43 points. Well, he wouldn’t be called ‘Late Riser’ if he didn’t start slowly. Reflecting on his pre-season decisions, the Pro Pundit considered:

Being stubborn will not make you a good FPL player. You have to respond to what you see on that television screen.

– Lateriser

It’s an exciting Gameweek with both Manchester clubs returning to action following their opening blank, and let’s not forget Aston Villa and Burnley too. Man United-fan Lateriser is sensing an opportunity to give Anthony Martial (£9.0m) the armband.

Although writing in Captain Sensible, Jan Sienkiewicz identified a weakness on Crystal Palace’s right flank that could be exploited by Marcus Rashford (£9.5m).

Encouragingly for Man United backers, the latest clean sheets odds provided by G-Whizz reveal that the Eagles are the team most likely to concede in Gameweek 2.

However, double-points king Jan notes that the safe captain pick is the popular Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m):

We can trust Aubameyang, who has been in fantastic goalscoring form over recent months and does have the underlying statistics, as well as penalties, to back it up.

– Jan

Arsenal entertain West Ham this weekend and, reflecting on the Hammers’ home defeat to Newcastle, David struck an ominous tone in the Best Captain video:

It’s quite rare to see a team get – I don’t want to say played off the park – but Newcastle were in full control of that game and I can’t remember the last time I really saw Newcastle be in control of a game and be on the front foot.

– David

One person who no doubt enjoyed that win was Neale. This week, our resident Geordie cast his eye over the statistics from Gameweek 1 in his latest Big Numbers offering. Among the many pearls highlighted was the frailty of the newly-promoted defences:

2.83 expected goals conceded (xGC) by West Bromwich Albion in Gameweek 1, the worst total in the division. In fact, the three newly promoted clubs had the worst xGC tallies in the first round of 2020/21 matches, with Leeds United (2.76) and Fulham (1.97) not far behind.

– Neale

That could be good news for owners of Everton players, with the Baggies visiting Goodison Park in the early kickoff.

The Toffees topped Pro Pundit Andy’s Gameweek 1 take-aways: underestimated following a series of sub-par performances during Project Restart, Andy noted how the arrival of midfield trio Allan (£5.5m), Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.5m) and James Rodríguez (£7.5m) transformed their attack. 

Calvert-Lewin will get the plaudits for the goal (and what a header it was), but Richarlison (£8.0m) was brilliant. He managed seven shots, with five of them in the box and his non-penalty expected goals (nPxG) was 0.74, not a bad start. He’ll be a hard sell because of the extra £1m he costs over Calvert-Lewin, but he could be a shrewd pick for the next three fixtures.

– Andy on Everton

Although investing heavily in Carlo Ancelotti’s troops might be tricky without a Wildcard, especially with the Manchester clubs back on the menu. Pro Pundit Zophar weighed up the Pros and Cons of making wholesale changes to your squad this early in the season. 

Depending on the make-up of your team, you may want to act fast to take advantage of low-owned players from Manchester City as well capitalising on the appealing fixtures for Everton and Manchester United. Although, typically cautious in nature, Zophar ultimately prefers to wait until he has a little more data to go on and the transfer window is closed.

However, rumour has it that his fellow member of the FPL Wire, BigManBakar, has pushed the button ahead of Gameweek 2. Does this mean he’s sold Salah? His latest Gameweek review suggests he might have:

I would be more tempted to sell Salah however, if I was on a wildcard because that would have meant that I could have upgraded elsewhere easily. And I think that might be a smart strategy, because this is where the concept of VORP (value over replacement player) comes into play and if you are unlikely to captain Salah in the next four (che ARS avl eve) that ploy might be fruitful.

– BigManBakar

If you are looking for further encouragement to play the early Wildcard, Pro Pundit Tom Freeman was on hand with a selection of enticing differentials. Raheem Sterling led the way with nine goals during Project Restart:

Five of his nine double-digit hauls arrived following the resumption, which ensured he outscored teammate Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) by 86 FPL points to 73.

– Tom on Raheem Sterling

And a trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers is not necessarily such a bad fixture for the Englishman, argues Tom:

Sterling also thrived on his travels – 70% of his league goals arrived during away games, while his 26 big chances in such matches was comfortably more than any other player.

– Tom on Raheem Sterling

The Aston Villa fan also ran the rule over the Villans’ new striker Ollie Watkins (£6.0m):

Amazingly, every single one of [his] 26 goals came from open play and, when you exclude penalties, Watkins scored more league goals than any other player in English football last season.

– Tom on Ollie Watkins

A partnership with Jack Grealish could bear fruit, and Tom suggests the time to invest might be Gameweek 6 when the fixture ticker turns blue for Dean Smith’s men.

This week’s Scoutcast featured former FPL winner and Pro Pundit Simon March. Despite concerns about their defence, one player who caught the eye of the Chelsea fan was Reece James (£5.0):

We saw the goal last night, I watched that back without the crowd noise and just the sound it makes when it leaves his boot – it was like a sonic boom! Just an absolute pile driver of a shot.

– Simon on Reece James

With new signings like Timo Werner (£9.5m) and Kai Havertz (£8.5m) to get on the end of his deliveries, Simon feels that £5.0m could be a steal. And, excluding his goal, Neale pointed out that the 20-year-old could benefit from the bonus points system:

20 baseline bonus points (BBPS) registered by Reece James on Monday night, the joint-highest total in Gameweek 1. Baseline BPS is simply a player’s BPS score with all the appearances, goals, assists and clean sheets stripped away.

– Neale on Reece James

Another defender who posed a goal-threat on the opening weekend was Matt Doherty (£6.0m). Spurs were rightly criticised for their defeat to Everton but the former Wolves player made a couple of encouraging “underlapping” runs into the box: the best resulting in a glorious chance from six yards out that Jordan Pickford (£5.0m) blocked with his legs.

Final Checks

Before making any final decisions ahead of Gameweek 2 be sure to check up on the latest team news and the predicted line-ups.

Pep Guardiola has revealed that Sergio Aguero and Aymeric Laporte will miss out this weekend:

Meanwhile Frank Lampard has confirmed that Timo Werner is fit to face the reigning Champions.

TopMarx Fan of Fantasy Football and Monty Python. "Archimedes out to Socrates, Socrates back to Archimedes, Archimedes out to Heraclitus, he beats Hegel. Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.”

        Unfortunately Pep seems to overlook him too often. Otherwise he'd be nailed in my team. Definitely one to monitor.

    £45m for Jota - seems a bit toppy to me but Klopp seems to know what he’s doing!

      Is Nyland not in goal for Villa?
      Have the same 2 keepers as you do...

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

        I don’t think he’s first choice. Is he?

    2. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Doubt about Saliba's starting spot this gw, I think KWP will come on for you.

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

        Yeah, Saliba is a problem, but I’m not sure if I want to take a hit to get rid

    3. gooner_112233445566
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Saliba played for arsenal u23 last night, so definitely not in squad for today mate. I’ve got him as well so had to bench him

  6. Merlinho
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    Draft choice (money doesn’t matter) - swap Egan for Dallas? I already have Stevens...

    1. Merlinho
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Money doesn’t matter but I might lose Egan going forward - the double up on H2H is a worry though...

  7. Ninjaa
    • 9 Years

    Bale forward or mid?
    How much 10m?

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Mid, 10-11m imo

    2. RomeluStormzy
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Mid 9.5 I think.

    3. yousunkmybattleship

      Great team, good luck

    5. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years

      lovely and a couple of differentials too! Good luck

    6. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Tough to ignore Chelsea but if you're on WC this week i can understand. Looks good!

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Chelsea will take a while to get going with the various states of fitness for Havertz, Ziyech and Pulisic

    7. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      and you would recommend Ferguson over Mitchell on WC?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        It’s the riskier pick but hopefully the better pick in the long run despite the possible 0.3 difference between them in a few GWs

        1. Catastrophe
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Yeah tricky. Still says unknown return date. But would be annoying to use a FT to change out Mitchell if needed when he does return.

    8. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Looks great, almost tempts me to wildcard soon.

    9. Our Man Charlie
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      looks good , would go with a backup Villa keeper maybe Steer

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        With Grealish it would lock me out of getting Watkins

    10. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Like it, not worried about Werner ?

      Only asking becasue my WC team looks somewhat similiar but I'm scared of Chelsea forward going berserk after LFC game.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        He doesn’t have the ammunition yet with the mixed fitness levels of Kai, Hak and Chris (even Ben)

    11. Hairy Potter
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Nice. I'm guessing you plan Auba to KDB/Sterling, unless Salah performs again this week? I'd maybe have a plan for Werner as have some good fixtures coming up.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Auba to Sterling and Martial to Werner

  11. Silent Friend
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    Mitrovic or Watkins on WC?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Watkins 100%

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Wat

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        He said "Mitrovic or Watkins on WC?"

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Haha. I didn’t have a question mark which night have helped with my poor wording

    3. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Watkins

  12. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    New post repost! Is this worth it?

    Ings >> Martial (-4)? If Ings score I lose my Davies clean sheet, hmm.

    McCarthy
    TAA, Justin, Egan, Davies
    Salah, Auba(C), Rodríguez, Saint-Max
    Werner, Ings
    (Nyland, Mitchell, Bissouma, Davis)

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Think you should hold.

      When you WCing?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Very unsure. Going to see how this GW pans out and how the Manchester teams hit the ground

    2. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      not worth hit IMO. Ings has a decent chance

    3. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Should have done Ings to Martial before so you didn't have to ask this question. Everyone will say no now but if you had put it as Alli & Ings to Rod & Martial everyone would say go ahead.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        True. But that doesn’t mean it’s the right decision. Every individual move should be assessed separately. It was not a hit that required the 0.5 to get Ings >> Martial as I already had that in the bank.

      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        It was Pulisic by the way too so he had to go. I wouldn’t dare pick Alli haha

  13. Fero1905
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 13 days ago

    How is this WC Team looking after gw2

    McCarthy --- Steer
    Ayling Gabriel Saiss Davies Ferguson
    Sterling KDB Salah Thiago Soucek
    Martial Jimenez Brewster

    I know its weak defense but very strong midfield

    1. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Thiago I don't think will be fantasy material. Try to turn Soucek into Podence or Klich/Harrison. Arsenal fixtures bad after WHU. Prefer Martinez to McCarthy

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Thiago won’t be an FPL option but will make Salah a better option

  14. Catastrophe
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    Anything to improve this team chaps?

    Martinez
    TAA, Digne, Saiss, Justin
    Salah, Auba, Fernandes, Podence
    Martial, Wilson

    (Steer, Bissouma, Mitchell, Brewster)

    GW3 = Auba -> KDB
    GW4 = Upgrade Bench (0.5 ITB)

    Not been able to fit Chelsea in but could get James OR Werner in GW4.

    Cheers.

    Coleman or Keane?

    1. Garam MOSALAH
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Keane for now

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Keane - set piece threat and it’s not 2013 anymore

  18. C_Manan

    Dallas or Ayling ?

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      2 months, 13 days ago

      Ayling

    3. C_Manan
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Anyone a set piece threat or looked dangerous going forward ?

    4. Garam MOSALAH
      • 7 Years

      Dallas

    Being stubborn will not make you a good FPL player. You have to respond to what you see on that television screen.

      I had to have Rodriguez after seeing he was a class above last weekend against Spurs despite no returns.

      Fine line between stubbornness and patience

        +1

        Nah if LR says it then it must be true

  20. No Totti No Party
    • 9 Years

    Martial or Laca ? (no other ARS player )

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Martial

    2. aDUUU
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      martial all day. dont cover a team just for the sake of it IMO!

    3. gooner_112233445566
      • 1 Year

      Martial

    Last WC decision..

    Kdb or Sterling?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Sterling now that Kun is out

      1. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Why does this make him a better pick?

        KDB imo

        1. THFC4LIFE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Sterling scores more points when Kun isn’t in the team apparently, haven’t checked stats myself but it’s been said before on here

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

            Kev will be on pens tho

    2. RomeluStormzy
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      This.

      Cant help thinking that de bruyne will play deeper (although said this last year).

      I'm going Sterling.

    3. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Safe option is KDB but I’d go with Sterling personally

    4. Garam MOSALAH
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Kevin for pens
      Need to see if Sterling hits the ground

    5. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      KdB

    6. Hairy Potter
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Both?

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

        Got Auba (C)..

        Could play safe with Kdb & decide Gw3 if I wasnt Salah/Sterling

        1. Hairy Potter
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Sounds good and gives you options. Good luck

  22. Maddamotha
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    Davies > Shaw?

  23. RomeluStormzy
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    Will city/utd players rise tonight after they've been given the first week off?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Think so but FPL could just wipe the slate clean for them now they have established their baseline ownership

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        This, hoping it resets to 0

      2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        They should do this to be consistent with teams that started GW1

  24. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    GTG?

    McCarthy
    TAA Justin Holding
    Salah Son ASM Auba(c) Greenwood
    Mitro DCL

    Bench: Lamptey Davis Vinagre

  25. Make United Great Again
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    on WC.

    A. Luke Shaw

    B. Reece James

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      B for me

    2. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      I'd get saiss. I'm getting Shaw for this Gameweek and switching to Saiss for GW3 if United sign Telles

    3. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      B

  26. The Hunt
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    My tip of the day? Crystal Palace to catch Manchester United stone cold and repeat what they done in GW3 last season.

    1. RomeluStormzy
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      This will then push them for Sancho hopefully.

    2. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      That would be great 🙂

  27. Chandler Bing
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    Is Sterling nailed for a while with Aguero out and Sane not being at the club anymore?

    1. Hairy Potter
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Probably nailed as he's arguably their best attacker and played great after lockdown.

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

      Sterling is never nailed, but he will play most of the matches when fit. Best winger in the squad.

  28. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    If KDB blanks, be ready for a big red arrow.

  29. No Totti No Party
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    A:KDB Wilson
    B:Auba Watkins

  30. The Legend Squad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    On WC,

    1) Martial or Werner?
    2) Auba or Salah?

    Will probably settle with Salah and Werner in the long term, so it’s whether I want to lock in 2 guaranteed transfers now

    1. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Martial and Salah. But if you can, Auba for this week then switch for KDB/Sterling next..

      1. The Legend Squad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Already have KDB, so it’s probably Auba for this week and then switch to Salah next week!
