Scout Network

Two more names join the growing Scout Nework

We are delighted to welcome both Transfer Algorithm and FPL Poker Player to the Scout Network.

These new entries are just two of many content creators doing great work for the Fantasy Premier League community this season.

You can read more about what they are getting up to in our weekly Scout Network round-ups.

Transfer Algorithm is a personal project by creator Tor Mikkel Tokvamm which uses underlying data to determine expected FPL points and value within the budget restraints for his team. 

This fast-growing tool uses over a dozen key statistics to consider each potential player, considering both recent and historic form. 

Some of the metrics that the Transfer Algorithm draws on are minutes played, big chances, goal attempts, chances created, shots, key passes and touches. 

By combining these data points with fixture ratings alongside the budget and pricing restraints the algorithm is then able to rank players in tables by play position. 

The Transfer Algorithm is also able to consider individual fixtures to generate a weekly captain calculator to help managers make the best captain choices. 

You can find Transfer Algorithm over on Patreon by CLICKING HERE.

FPL Poker Player can be found both on Twitter, as well as on his website.

He uses the skills and tricks of Poker in an FPL setting. By applying the transferable skills of things such as expected value and probability to FPL, FPL Poker Player creates tables which inform the planning and decision making for Fantasy managers. 

The tables make use of score predictions, clean sheet probability, expected goals and other factors to work out the xFPL points for the coming Gameweeks. 

FPL Poker Player’s view, much like that of many other FPL managers, is that, much like his favourite card game, sometimes you have to go all-in.

And if you like Poker analogies, stay tuned for an excellent Pro Pundit article by former FPL world champion Simon March very soon…

    A. Castagne + Werner

    B. TAA + DCL?

    Already have H.Rod...

      B. Think DCL is a better option than Hot Rod.

      Wouldn’t touch Leicester defence now with the Ndidi news.

        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Is he? Really liked the look of James' stats... But DCL certainly has a lot of value at his price.

          I just think the position DCL gets in when the ball is in the box is hard to ignore. He’ll need the creativity behind him to continue scoring but between the two I’d favour DCL - not saying Hot Rod isn’t a good pick.

            True... That would mean no Werner this fixtures. Tough decisions

    WC opinions.

    Narrowed it down:

    Ι am always wondering why FFS is getting fpl managers who are not active here.They can be great managers but i prefer to read the opinion of managers(There are lot of good managers) that i "know" from this forum.

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

      Yep, I don't get it either other than trying to lure more twatterers to FFS and we have enough of them already 😉

      I sometimes think spending too much time on here can be detrimental to your team. The madness of crowds...

        But, yes, having that interaction and characters is what always made this such a good site good (that's inevitably changed a little as it's got so popular). I've never been very active, but there are definitely players on here whose opinions I very much respect.

          I can already see two in this post.One above you and one below you.

            Absolutely! Without being too sycophantic 😀

        I usually don't give A or B/RMT advice because I don't want to be blamed for anyones decisions and I lost my account with 6 year badge, so even if I gave advice now noone would take me seriously.
        I also don't really ask advice because I trust my own decisions more than anyone elses.

          I want to see an interview with the knights template

    4. Here Comes The Son ★
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Wood 6.5m - Penalty taker
      SOU(H) - NEW(A) - WBA(A)

      I recon he can match most forwards for points over the next 3. Dat value

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

        6.5m attacker to rival Foden.

      2. Amey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Aye ...

        It's because of him being available I'm thinking about going for Son instead of Werner

      3. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        aah, on pens? I missed that. Right, he comes in for Brewster - Foden stays. It's costa and Saiss who get sacrificed.

      4. Baines on Toast...

    6. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Which one would you pick ??

      A. Son Wood
      B. Werner Podence

      1. Here Comes The Son ★
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Very tough, I have all 4 in my team. I'd swing towards A (no bias :P)

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Ha ha ha ha

          I'm trying to see where most would go.

          I'm on B atm. Almost 99% 😛

        B. Wood is too boring!!

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Ha ha
          Is he ?

          Maybe.

          Thanks mate

          1. The Handsome Hunk
            • 6 Years

            Jesus is exciting if you want to punt.

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

              I'm not sure about him.
              Never had him in my FPL team ... Have some mental block that he's a bad finisher .. 😀

        2. Here Comes The Son ★
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Gets the job done and is a good enabler. Wouldn't say he's too different to Jimenez. Both 6-9 point merchants

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            Yeah.
            Jimenez way better player overall.
            But agree with that in terms of FPL.

      3. Flair

      With Pool winning 4-0 I think I'll have an early night
      Thought their might have been a chance of an upset with Lincoln's good form & all the team changes by Klopp
      Liverpool fans what's the latest news on Brewster ?
      I thought he might have made a start in this game .
