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.

    Business as usual for the Everton team. Nice!

    Needed that “glitch” as I was too busy this morning to finalise my wildcard team.
    Literally was able to submit my team during the first minute of 11am. No time to think about the team. Either it’s a genius move or I get what I deserve for riding the price changes and only picking a team at 10:50....

      It'll be easy to retrospectively undo any team changes made after 11:00

        Sorry what do you mean?

          FPL towers can decide to nullify any team changes done after the published deadline

  6. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

    Would you guys sell Auba if he scored a hattrick this GW?

    1. BigManZimo
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Yes

    2. Daniel Jebbison
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      No. I would keep him for that Sheffield game

    3. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Possibly but depends on how gw3 targets do in gw2.

    4. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Depends on the Manchester players really, if they look good the swap would make it easier

    5. Tcheco
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      yes

    6. AIRMILES
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      I'll be switching him for KDB regardless of his performance.

      1. TimoTime
        • 3 Years

        This

      2. Magic Zico

        This

    7. Stram Dunk
      • 2 Years

      Yes

  7. FOO FIGHTER

    Waiting to see how my rank has humped after all the hits that were taken...

    1. FOO FIGHTER

    2. Stimps

      Try not to hump on early bandwagons

  8. Vazza
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 10 months ago

    It’s a bit too late now but should have I started Bissouma vs new instead of Coady vs MCI ?

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Yes

    2. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Yes

    3. Forza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      No, a Wolves CS is more likely than Bissouma points IMO.

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        No its not

    4. BigManZimo
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Eh doesn't matter. 1 or 2 point difference unless bissouma scores. Could be same if City don't score a crazy amount. Maybe somehow wolves keep clean sheet too.

    5. All Hail K
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      It's likely only going to make a difference of 1 or 2 points but there is the chance of a Wolves CS. Plus you have more of an interest in the late Monday night game (better entertainment value, that's worth a couple of points.)

    I can just imagine that FPL Towers post mortem zoom call this morning.

    Everyone silently looking at the dazed intern with the blood shot eyes...bottle of Lucozade and box of paracetamol in the background...

      That West Brom team is nowhere near PL quality, be amazed if they don't go straight back down

      1. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Ivanovic is gonna sort it all out.

      2. BenDavies
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Yeah there is a huge gulf in the teams

    3. CONNERS
      • 3 Years

      I will love it if West Brom beat Everton. Love it.

      1. BenDavies

      Who's on pens for the toffees now that Siggy is benched?

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        James hopefully

      2. BenDavies
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Hopefully James. But it's just a guessing game until we get a pen.

      3. DRIZ ✅

        Digne

      4. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Probably Richarlison

      5. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Hamez i reckon

      6. BigJarvishManmynameisq
        • 8 Years

        Reckon it's gonna be Rich, don't own him

      7. Pacer.
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Seems very unlikely to be Rodders Plonker

      8. Party time
          1 year, 10 months ago

          Between James & Richarlison

          1. Pacer.
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 10 months ago

            Why would it be james. He has never been a regular penalty taker. Seems very unlikely he'd start now

        • All Hail K
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          1 year, 10 months ago

          I can see Richarlison grabbing the ball and not letting anyone have it. (and if they touch him he'll fall down in pain.)

          1. FFSbet.com

        • IRBOX ⚽
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 10 months ago

          James for sure. 13/16 from the spot but never really taken them regularly due to the caliber of this squads. Richarlison has scored 3 but has no composure in front of goal. DCL more likely than him

      9. DRIZ ✅

            Can’t have them all. Said might come in soon tho. James is equally as good I think

      12. FOO FIGHTER

        Knowing Arsenal are chockers, would not surprise if Arsenal troll tonight.

        1. FPL_Humperdoo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 10 months ago

          Yeah, I don't think they're as good as people think they are.

          Fulham were awful, and extrapolating any data from that game seems silly.

          1. DRIZ ✅
            • 10 Years
            1 year, 10 months ago

            AUBA C Haters

            1. BigManZimo
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 10 months ago

              He could very well do amazing but it's always a risk captaining him. It's always 50/50 with him. He is as likely to blank as he is to score 16-17 points.

            2. FPL_Humperdoo
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 year, 10 months ago

              Oh I still captained Auba. I think the West Ham defence is awful.

              But I think they'll concede against West Ham.

          2. BigManZimo
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 10 months ago

            I agree. Didn't captain Auba for this reason.

          3. La Roja
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 year, 10 months ago

            West Ham is arguably as bad as Fulham though

            1. Nomar
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              1 year, 10 months ago

              Very much this.

        2. Rolls-Royce
          • 8 Years

          Let's hope for a Soucek hattrick.

        Annoying how people, keep their team link private. Why if one is a top player ? I distrust profiles that block us viewing their FOL page.

          How do you make it display your current gameweek? Mine seems to give a link to some game last year that is no longer available.

              I mean I think my reasoning pretty much destroyed his snide comment but fair play chief, keep fighting the good fight any time someone mentions the updating time.

          Will City be a better team without Aguero?

          Maybe when he's back and their fixtures turn in GW10 they are worth triple assets?

          I know they'll be good anyway, but Jesus isn't standout over Werner is he?
          Or is he?!

          1. Gudjohnsen
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 10 months ago

            Werner the better player but Jesus potentially has better service?

            1. RamaJama
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 year, 10 months ago

              Werner will have pretty good service too when all Chelsea mids get started

            2. kevchenko
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 year, 10 months ago

              On what we know, but if Pulisic, Havertz, Ziyech click that might not be as clear cut.

              Essentially, they're both going to get a lot of good chances for attacking teams. Maybe I need both.... I'd need to lose big bad Jamie Vardy though and he's a cheat player.

        4. Eleven Hag

          Going with Sterling and KDB - Sterling usually plays as fwd for the last 20-30 when Auba is out

        How the hell have we got to 2020 and it STILL takes FPL 40 minutes to update the game.

        Absolutely useless.

              Because it's a free game, servers are expensive, and there is no real need to get it updated quickly.

              Be grateful.

          • 5 Years

          Well done fitting them all in. I do agree about value picks. Leeds could be best valued players this season. I have Ayling and Dallas and Digne and Pickford. Also had JRod, but brought him out last min for podance to give my team more balance elsewhere.

        I imagine a massive callcenter-like facility with the thousands upon thousands who work with manually updating each account (hence the long updating time) just watching the empty desk of the manager responsible of the GW end/begins switchboard.
