Tips

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.”

    Very happy with my team:
    Martinez, Button
    Lewis, Ake, Maguire, Digne, Mitchell
    Grealish, Auba, Bruno, Podence, Bissouma
    Werner, Richa, Martial
    Good luck to all...

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      AWB over McGuire?

      1. bOttOmEdpOstrEpliEr.
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        It was very difficult to choose one between both of them.
        Maguire more likely to score, AWB more likely to assist.

        1. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          AWB gets bps too

          1. bOttOmEdpOstrEpliEr.
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            You are right, still have time to decide.

    2. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Good one, personnally would like one of Robbo or Trent.

      1. bOttOmEdpOstrEpliEr.
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Too difficult to go without them, too exciting at the same time.

    3. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Re Trent last year vs Chelsea 24 pointer!

  5. kevchenko
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    I still can't decide whether to take -4 for Martial in for Werner.

    Werner could score today and could definitely take apart West Brom though.

    I should stick with Werner, right?

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Can't understand why you'd use a hit to take out Werner. He looked really dangerous in gw1

      1. kevchenko
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Because he's less likely to score than Martial is this week.
        Both have an easy game next week.

        I'm sticking with Werner, it's just the Saturday morning shivers haha

        1. Garrincha1962
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Right to stick with Werner

          Just stick £5 on Martial for 2 goals or more

          1. Garrincha1962
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            Bet safe: when the fun stops Stop.

          2. kevchenko
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            Haha, I came 3rd in 14/15 - and often backed the things I didn't want to happen - I lost money all season on the football and got feck all for coming 3rd in the FPL.

            Lose, Lose scenario.

    2. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Right

  6. Coaly
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Is Podence nailed now with Jota going to Pool?

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Nailed is a bit much, but certainly more likely to start more than he was if Jota happens and they don't sign anyone else.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Not quite. If Wolves sign a wing back/trust Buur, Traore could play on the RW and Neto on the left which would leave Podence out of the side. They might do this in the City game just to have more defensively minded players than Podence.

  7. Ginkapo FPL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Remember, 37 weeks for hits to payoff currently

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Assuming you hold the player you bring in for the season. The hit amortisation is only over the duration of your ownership of that player.

      1. The Legend Squad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        And relative to the points of the player you sold.

        Rarely makes hits worth it, to be honest

  8. MAXIMIN EFFORT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Martinez | Steer
    Digne | Saiss | Lamptey | Ayling | Ferguson
    Auba | Bruno | Rodriguez | Podence | Bissouma
    Martial | Richarlison | Jimenez

    Gtg boys? Any wildcard changes you’d make?

    1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      2 mil in the bank for Werner or whoever next week

    2. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Great teame, Lamptey might be great.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Looks very similar to mine but have Grealish over Podence

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Good shout, now Villa have a striker that could pay off. With Jota’s sale Podence is a lock-in for me

    4. Bullet Eder
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      No Liverpool at all?

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Nope

    5. kevchenko
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      No TAA or Robbo?

      You've wildcarded to a side where you know you won't have the best two defenders.

      Brace....

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Willing to take the risk, given what that money allows for. I see more value in cheap defenders than in previous years. Thanks though appreciate the feedback

        1. kevchenko
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Fair enough.

          Personally I think DCL and Robbo will be better than Digne and Richarlson over the season.... but I do think Richarlson is a great pick.

          Best of luck.

    Not an interesting question but who to start (saliba won’t start)

    A) Mitchell (Man U)
    B) bissouma (Newcastle)

    1. Rashleigh Runabouts
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Not an interesting answer, but I'm starting Bissouma over KWP if it's any help. GL

        1. Garrincha1962
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          I’ve put Mitchell 3rd on my bench ( even behind Oliver Burke who’s 2nd on my bench) if that helps

      • kevchenko
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        If you think there is any chance of a clean sheet for Palace away at United, he'd be a huge differential for you (as Utd players would also blank).....

        Bissouma will get 2 points.

        If Mitchell conceeds 4, you might get 0 points.
        Might be worth the gamble - you'd only really lose out if Bissouma gets his annual goal.

    2. Will J 256
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Should I go ahead with this move?
      Alli and Pulisic to James Rodriguez and Greenwood (-4)?

      1. kevchenko
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Definitely just James in for Pulisic (who isn't fit to play)....

    3. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Ryan

      Digne TAA Saiss
      Podence Grealish Bruno James R Auba
      Martial Jimenez

      Seele Brewster Justin Mitchell

      Think I'm happy with that just worried about Werner going mental but on the other hand could ignore Wolves fixtures and Jimenez consitancy.

      Good luck to y'all !!!

      thoughts on this WC team????

      Martinez (Steer)
      TAA, Digne, Justin (Saiss, Mitchell)
      Auba, B Fernandes, J Rodriguez, Podence (Bissouma)
      DCL, Martial, Jimenez

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Solid, prefer Lamptey over Justin though

    5. Scout
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Which one
      Bruno DCL Wilson
      Martial Werner and ASM
      Rashford and lacazette

    6. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Starting to plan now for GW3.

      Auba > KdB seems super obvious.

      After that, I'd like to take a hit for a Wolves player. I think it'll pay off in the long term and it will be a move I'll want to make eventually.

      KWP > Saiss
      Soucek > Podence

      Which is best?

      1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        A

      2. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Why not keep an open mind and watch the game?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Price changes maybe. Saiss could be going up. But yeah, I'll likely wait until after the game and decide then. But I'll almost certainly be taking a hit for one of the two this week.

      3. NATSTER

        Is Soucek 5th mid or 4th mid?

        I feel the upside of Podence could be more if he start regularly.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Soucek plays every week. I'm in 3-5-2. So yeah, Podence would play every game.

          Saiss of those moves

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Nope. Decided against it. Will do Auba > KdB right away to avoid the price rise and then we will see what happens beyond that. Will definitely be taking a hit though for a Wolves player. The question is which one.

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            However, I'm basically doing Auba > KdB upon deadline and if anything jeopardizes the team like any injuries to key starters, I'll hit the button. It's a be aggressive with transfers week, and if it doesn't work, I'll activate the wildcard.

          2. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            I was all set on KDB next GW but then I head Agüero is out for a while and saw this stat from last season so may go Sterling instead:

            Sterling with Aguero-
            13 games. Points- 45. PPG- 3.46.

            Sterling without Aguero-
            20 games. Points- 159. PPG- 7.95

      6. Our Man Charlie
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        thats a tough one Camzy would swing to the Saiss move those fixtures and wolves looking good

      7. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Probably the Saiss move now he looks nailed. I’m doing likewise with Davies unless Keane or James tempt otherwise. Also want to see a bit more of Wolves attack setup

      8. International Richard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Saiss seems the obvious shout based on last game & experience in league

      9. kevchenko
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I'd see how KWP (and Southampton) looks at home to Spurs.
        Podence in, would defintiely get more points than Soucek over the next 8 weeks.... and it's easy to get Soucek 'back-in' isn't it?

        B for me, unless Southampton look terrible today.

      10. Nightrain_
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I'll plan to do the Auba > KDB too and while I'm relying on Podence, i think the ceiling of Soucek is slightly higher than KWP so Saiss for now is the better pick considering him is more urgent with the price rise unless Podence unexpectedly score/assist this week against MCY

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I sat bruno on the bench for first week and have done ings to martial as free transfer. I feel I have already missed the boat to swap vinagre or son as they have gone down in value last night. Go to go or take a hit?

      I know ppl can make their own decisions and it’s all fine and I make loads off rubbish transfers through out the season .. but all these players looking to get rid of TAA at game week two doesn’t make sense to me? That’s one player that’s in the team all year...

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Pool looked awful at the back for months, Thiago might even take some of the creativity away from the full backs

        Or Robertson. Not much to separate them to be honest!

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Yes

        id be pretty sure he will, bound to have served his self isolation a few days back?

          Cool let’s hope so!

      3. jamiejoe
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        He could get 60 mins or 30 mins.

        I think OGS rates him highly so I'd expect a similar set up to the project restart sides where Greenwood consistently featured, he may rotate him more for rest though.

      Better option for next gw? Auba and Mitro/Adams out

      A) Sterling + DCL
      B) Rashford + Jimmy

      1. jason_ni

        Probably b, but think sterling will be class this season

      Took a - 4 to get to this. Reassure me I don't need to WC! (or do I)?

      Mccarthy (Nyland)

      TAA Robbo Lamptey (KWP - Ferguson)

      Salah - Auba - James Rod - Harrison (Bissouma)

      Adams - Mitro - Werner

      1m in the bank.

      Not happy with no Utd assets. Looking to go Auba to KDB next week.

      1. Scout

        1. Neevesy

          Yes, If I had Ings!

      2. Neevesy

        2 or 3 for me. If Werner is nailed as striker for Chelski then he's a season keeper for me.
