Scout Notes

Budget FPL assets shine for Leeds and Fulham but Bielsa highlights lack of creativity

Leeds United 4-3 Fulham

  • Goals: Helder Costa (£5.5m) x2, Mateusz Klich (£5.5m), Patrick Bamford (£5.6m) | Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m) x2, Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Bamford x2, Klich | Joe Bryan (£5.0m), Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m), Kenny Tete (£4.5m)
  • Bonus: Mitrovic x3, Bamford x2, Costa x2

Patrick Bamford (£5.6m) rewarded his growing Fantasy following with a double-digit haul in Leeds United’s second seven-goal thriller of the week.

The forward’s goal in Gameweek 1’s 4-3 loss to Liverpool prompted nearly 365,000 managers to buy him in for the Fulham game.

Seasoned Fantasy Premier League (FPL) bosses, and many a Leeds fan, would have considered the move optimistic at best as Bamford has plenty of previous for missing his fair share of chances.

But the striker struck again on Saturday, finishing with aplomb when released by a Mateusz Klich (£5.5m) pass early in the second half of the win over Fulham.

His boss, Marcelo Bielsa, was quick to play down the side’s eye-catching start to the season:

This won’t be a constant all year. It is very difficult to maintain the efficiency we have had in these first two games. The characteristics of our game is to create goalscoring opportunities. In these two games we have created very little, but we have scored all our chances.

He might as well have been talking about Bamford, who has now scored from two of the three chances he has been presented with this season.

That has tempted another raft of managers to back the striker. He’s currently in the top three transfers-in for a Gameweek 3 trip to Sheffield United and a Yorkshire derby that should be, to use a technical term, proper tasty.

Whether his fine form is sustainable is highly debatable.

FPL has indulged plenty of fine early starters who failed to deliver consistently over a season – Norwich’s Teemu Pukki is the most recent example of that, while Manchester United striker Anthony Martial (£9.0m) is another who hit the Premier League ground running before being reduced to a stagger within a few weeks.

As we detailed in pre-season here, Bamford has never been the most clinical of strikers, missing 34 (77.3%) of the big chances he had in the Championship last season.

For now, however, it would be churlish not to bask in his point-scoring glory. He also had two assists against Fulham, earning a penalty when he was pushed in the back by Joe Bryan (£5.0m) and then setting up Helder Costa (£5.5m) on the break to make the scoreline 4-1 with barely ten minutes of the second half played.

Add on two bonus and the forward ended with 14 points on the day –  a total he shared with Costa as the midfielder opened the scoring when he picked up a loose ball from a corner and smashed it in off the bar with five minutes on the clock.

Costa also earned two bonus points and has now hauled in both matches for his 1.6% ownership.

But spare a thought for the 4.6% with Klich in their squads. He also scored in Gameweek 1 and was on the score sheet against the Cottagers when he rolled home the penalty Bamford had earned.

Such was the madness of the match, a goal and an assist were not enough to bring in any extra points for the Poland international. In fact, the maximum bonus award didn’t even go to a Leeds player at all.

That honour was reserved for visiting striker Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m), who marked his first start of the season with two goals and 12 points.

The Serbia international was a very popular pick heading into the season and the 20%-owned forward was quick to reward his followers when he blasted in a first-half penalty, awarded when Robin Koch (£4.5m) mistimed a slide tackle on Bryan.

He then headed in from a fine Kenny Tete (£4.5m) cross to make it 4-3 with just over 20 minutes left to play.

Fulham’s other goal was a sweet one, with the impressive Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m) playing a beautifully-weighted pass through to Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.5m), who shot across Leeds keeper Illan Meslier (£4.5m) and into the far corner.

Both Meslier and his Fulham counterpart Alphonse Areola (£4.5m) were, unsurprisingly, busy boys on the day and the pair picked up a save point apiece for their efforts.

Two players who were rather less involved were Leeds playmaker Pablo Hernandez (£6.0m), who suffered a groin strain in the warm-up, and the club’s record signing, Rodrigo (£6.0m), who replaced him in the starting line-up.

The striker was peripheral at best playing as a number ten behind Bamford and he was hooked at half-time, although that was more an indication of his lack of match fitness as Bielsa, who has very high standards in that regard, was quick to point out post-match:

I was under the impression that he lacked a bit of energy to show his qualities. I think that has something to do with the physical effort he used against Hull (in the EFL Cup). That’s why I decided to sub him.

The coach also gave an update on Hernandez:

Pablo had a small knock in the warm-up. We don’t think it’s very serious.

Fulham boss Scott Parker had understandably mixed emotions about an away game in which his team had 55% of the possession and scored three goals, but still lost:

We showed some real quality in possession at times. We showed a real impetus and caused Leeds a lot of problems. On the flip side we gave away easy goals today and left ourselves a mountain to climb.

He also made it clear that he will chop and change his side this season:

The players who did not play today are vital and will play a vital part this year. As I showed last year I will make changes for matches that give us the best chance of winning.

Not that Fulham rotation will be a major concern for most Fantasy managers, with Mitrovic by far and away the most likely to be drafted in for a good schedule from now until late November.

As for Leeds, they currently have the dubious honour of being an even worse defensive unit than Fulham, having conceded seven goals to the Cottagers’ six.

But in Bamford, Costa and Klich, they have three in-form and very nicely priced assets who will surely find their way into many FPL teams over the next few weeks.

The Leeds rush might have to wait, however – after that derby in Sheffield, Bielsa’s men will host Manchester City in Gameweek 4.


Leeds United XI (4-4-2): Meslier; Dallas, Cooper, Koch, Ayling; Phillips, Harrison, Klich, Costa; Bamford (Alioski 70), Rodrigo (Roberts 45).

Fulham XI (4-2-3-1): Areola; Bryan, Hector, Odoi, Tete; Reed (Lemina 70′), Zambo Anguissa; Kamara (Kebano 58′), Onomah (Decordova-Reid 58′), Cavaleiro; Mitrović.

    Does this make sense?

    Havertz, Adams to Zaha, DCL

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I'm keeping both Havertz & Adams. Both of them have two good fixtures coming up!

    2. luk46
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I would keep these two for the next 2 gws at least... Adams could have easily scored already

    3. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Cant see Zaha being something that he has never been in his career...consistent!

      1. cravencottage
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Agree

      2. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Agreed, had him in my WC plans but i’m just not feelin it with him, could be wrong, but doesn’t inspire that consistency like ya say

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

      Good moves if it's for a free but wouldn't sell Adams for a hit. Havertz didn't show any promise for the short term so far so despite the fixture I think Zaha is a better option.

    5. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Think thats acc points chasing and not looking forward. Adams and Havertz have insane fixtures

      1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Havertz having insane fixtures doesn't really matter when he's playing as mediocre as he is. At least Adams passes the eye test

  2. sk24
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    1) Zaha & Jimenez
    or
    2) Werner & Mitrovic

    1. luk46
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      close, 1 if Zaha becomes James maybe

      1. sk24
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Can't afford that due to Vinagre drop >.

        1. luk46
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          oh ye, same boat here... maybe Podence and Erner to use the 1m elsewhere? option 1 has mr consistent tho

          1. sk24
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            I have Klich also, so it would become awkward price-point wise, will probably go 2) and play 3-4-3, feels more natural and since in 1) I would have DCL and Jimenez in 4-4-2 it would be kind of zombie forward line and I don't jave patience for that. Thanks

            1. luk46
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              wouldnt like no wolves coverage, its not bad tho

              1. sk24
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 4 days ago

                Could Podence be considered a Wolves cover?

                1. luk46
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 4 days ago

                  Id say so, ye?!

    2. All about the galacticos

      1

  3. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year

    Kane and Son double up looking primed for plenty points.

    1. sinik
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Spurs are outperforming their xG

    2. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Not at all

    3. All about the galacticos
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      today was a freak, with naive southampton defending. I'd go with one, that would be son

  4. luk46
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Auba + ASM > KDB + Podence a no brainer for a hit, right?

    order for transfers after that: Vinagre, Davies, Adams.

    1. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Makes sense

      1. luk46
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        cheers!

    2. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Considering Auba + Soucek to KdB + Podence.

      However, are you doing it NOW?

      1. luk46
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        gonna wait as long as I can, need some info (Podence etc)

        would only do it if you cant afford a Soucek drop, maybe risk it and wait tonight tho?

        1. arndff_
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Cant afford a drop. If he drops, Podence is a no go.

          1. luk46
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            shouldnt drop tonight imo, wouldnt risk it, but thats just me

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Looks good to me! Although I'd go Sterling over Auba! He's the talisman when Aguero doesn't play!

      1. luk46
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        ye, thats a tough one... I just think pens for KDB edges it

  5. arndff_
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Soucek -96.3% ...

    1. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Nobody better at that price

      1. arndff_
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Podence @ 5.5?

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Obviously he has better potential than Soucek right now!

          1. arndff_
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Just afraid to do it before Wolves vs Man C have played.

            1. Pep Roulette
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              If you can wait then do it after the game surely!

              1. arndff_
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 4 days ago

                Nah, exact funds for Auba Soucek to KdB Podence

                1. arndff_
                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 4 days ago

                  But if KdB gets injured tmrw, I’ll have to WC becuse of those early moves.

                  1. Pep Roulette
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 4 days ago

                    Well you can't wait that's sure and injuries can happen in midweek games as well! What if you wait for tomorrow, get KDB and he gets injured in the cup game? Take the risk imo.

                    1. arndff_
                      • 8 Years
                      2 months, 4 days ago

                      He wont play in the cup, will he?

                      1. Pep Roulette
                        • 3 Years
                        2 months, 4 days ago

  7. Origi-nal

    ASM & Auba > Zaha & Bruno?

    0.1 short of KDB/Sterling. Thanks Bamidele.

    1. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      If possible I'd definitely try and get KDB / Sterling instead of Zaha / Bruno.

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years

        This

  8. cravencottage

    Auba to Salahor Sterling?

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Salahor 😉

    2. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Salahor sounds like a hero from Lord of the Rings.

  9. Tiki-Taka

    any chance gabriel rises again to 5.2 this week? on a wildcard so juggling defenders to try and get 0.1 value

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    A great thing about getting in Son on WC now is that it allows to keep 0.1 in the bank...don't know how many times I was short 0.1 for a move (it's a lot though)!

    1. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      He'll probably rise twice by next GW so it should give a 0.1 profit even if he doesn't end up in the team.

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

      Sorry just realised that's what you meant anyway.

    3. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      It makes a huge difference, if you could do it 10 times, you'd have an extra £1.0m which is easily 1-3 pts per gameweek.

  11. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    is James Rodriguez a must on a WC?

    1. Seanigula
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Yes

    2. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Not a must, but maybe a wise choice to give a chance to

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I wouldn't say a must! Any one from DCL, Richarlison & James could be fine! Preferably DCL!

    2 months, 4 days ago

    Well, this is where i’m at on WC if anyone cares to take a look, nightmare GW like many i suppose, especially afte removing Son, could punch myself!

    Martinez
    James - VVD - Saiss
    Podence - Salah - Sterling - Son - Rodriguez
    DCL - Jiminez
    ______________________________________
    Steer: Mitchell: Bamford: Dunne

    0.4 left ITB

    Some of the things i’m trying to decide before next gameweek are to Werner or not, or consider Brewster instead of Bamford for extra funds, to decide between KDB or Sterling, and to determine if i want VVD/TAA/Robbo.

    Not looking for any soecific advice, just if anyone cares to run their eye over it to see what ya think of the team etc.

    Cheers guys.

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Surely Brewster instead of Bamford! And VVD to TAA!

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        I’d love to do that, but.......0.1 short, eurgh!

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Go Robbo then, no problem!

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

      I think you could downgrade either Podence or Bamford and use the funds on defence.

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah i agree, think i’ll have ti go that route, cheers man

    3. All about the galacticos
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      i'm not a big fan of james longterm. good player but can't see chelsea keeping clean sheets and his place may not be 100% nailed. good option for this gameweek tho.

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Cheers for the reply bud, yeah James will come under fewer mins in the future for sure, just seems a decent option to jump on for the interim, will have to add him to the list of decisions.
        Could all change tomorrow after watching the City Wolves game anyhow haha!

        1. All about the galacticos
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          yeah. it's been such a difficult start. i did martinez&steer move, solid keeper, i feel better than leno at arsenal.
          IMO liking - Martinez, Saiss, Salah Son - Rodriguez, DCL
          the others are decent but pricey, Sterling vs KDB, should be decided after tomorrows game

    4. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Personally feel the backline is a bit shaky.
      If 3 at the back, it might be good to bring in Digne / Doherty or some attacking wing-backs.
      Could also consider some medium-sized punts like Mahrez, Barnes, Justin etc.

      But it's hard to predict what the best team is these days as there's no obvious template.

        2 months, 4 days ago

        Cheers matey, yeah no template formed and doubt one will be with so many good choices anytime soon, so much harder to predict.
        It does feel shaky at the back though, James needs ti be reconsidered i feel now. Shall work on that before the deadline for sure.

    RMT

    McCarthy
    TAA Doherty Egan Justin
    Auba Salah Son ASM
    Werner Adams
    (Nyland KWP Stephens Brewster)
    2 FT 1.0ITB

    HELP ME TO DECIDE:
    a)Auba ASM -> KDB Zaha
    b) Auba ASM -> KDB Podence
    c) ASM -> Podence and safe 1 FT for next GW

    1. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Probably A

  15. Niho992
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Good ebening fellas. What to do here? 2 FT and 0.0 ItB

    McCarthy
    Trent-Ayling-Bavies
    Salah(C)-Auba-Son-Barnes
    Mitrovic-Werner-Adams

    Steer-Mitchell-Justin-Bisouma

    Auba will be Sterling probably but what to do with other transfer?

    Bavies will be benched next GW and Adams maybe too.

    Thoughts?

    1. HARLEY
      • 3 Years

      Replace Werner to Brewster

      1. Niho992

        Why?

  16. Taegugk Warrior

    Ditch son to Fernandez last week. Regret it...
    Bring Son in back for -4 to replace ASM, Y/N...?

  18. Witty Pun: Not good at this…

    I think Watkins will provide a lot of managers with some food for thought today

  19. Baltic Revolution
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Anyone considering Jesus for the next few gameweeks??

    1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      So many other premium to semi-premium options I'd rather have before him

      1. Baltic Revolution
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 4 days ago

        City's sole striker for the foreseeable future...saving some money vs. KDB...differential... At least such is my thinking

        1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          You have to separate Jesus and KdB, man. Jesus could get 13 points in a week where de Bruyne gets 3, and he could get 5 when de Bruyne gets 17. Attacking coverage is a myth, you need to look at what each player offers distinctly.

          1. sinik
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Jesus is most definitely a premium option.

            1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              True, I thought he was 9.0 which would have put him borderline.

          2. Baltic Revolution
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Fair point to be sure - KDB is the long term plan definitely...but think Jesus is worth the gamble for the time being, or at least I hope ; )

            1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Yeah he's absolutely a viable option, just that there's so many options this year, especially to start with, that he's not at the top of my list. Could be a great differential though.

              1. Baltic Revolution
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 4 days ago

                Cheers - good luck

                  You too man. I like Jesus anyway so hope he does well for you if you do get him 🙂

      if Werner didn't have WBA. depends on how the Wolves game goes tho

      I may end up there as well. Already made my first and just so much more needs work

      1. Keep Calm and Play On
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah same here, plus I’m really more concerned with trying to win my ML which is a mixed payout of H2H and overall points so hopefully pays off as it did a few years ago with an early WC

  24. GloryManUnited
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Did Auba>Sterling so I can’t change my mind back to KDB regardless of tomorrow. Hope it works out. Lol

      I did the reverse before the GW, so wish i’d held after even advicating people to keep him! Made a big mistake there.

  26. De Gea is GOAT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Possible WC team. Let me know what you think:

    Ramsdale or Ryan
    TAA Keane James Saiss
    Salah Son Sterling
    Jimenez DCL Bamford

    Steel Lamptey/Justin Podence Bissouma

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      not a fan of 3 in midfield personally.

    2. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Can either be 4-4-2 or 4-3-3

    3. Pilgrim62
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I’m not sure about defense. Keane and James are concerned.

      Rodriguez did not rise, and Havertz did not drop.
      Similar with Gabriel last week. Am wondering if the new players to the premier league are on a different threshold to everyone else.
      We could see the same with Werner

    Ryan - 4.0
    TAA - Taylor - Lamptey - Lewis - Mitchell
    Salah - KDB - Son - Rodriguez - Klich
    Jimenez - DCL - 4.5

    1. Hurnt

      Looks good if wc I’d want digne Trent think they can score big next few

    2. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I do like it, more cheapy at the back is what i’d have to do if i want TAA also

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Good overall but not enough Wolves for me.

    4. Karhumies
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Looks good if you want TAA and are happy with Ryan + Lamptey double up. Some 5.0 (e.g. Saiss) and 5.5 (Castagne) defs seem like a significant improvement over 4.5s.

  29. TheDragon
