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…

    Last FW slot to fill.

    A. Jimi
    B. Jesus
    C. Ings

    1. diabydoesgallas

      A

    2. Rasping Drive

      If you don’t go B, what will you do with the extra million?

      1. potatoace
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Keep. Maybe upgrade Son to Salah at some point .

        1. Alexis Nonsense
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          That would be a great way out if Mourinho bottles it again, which the "experts" expect him to do

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Don't need an expert to call something that's inevitable 🙂

        2. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the picks tbh. I would probably go with Jesus, simply because City
          score a lot more goals than the other two teams.

    3. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Jesus.

    4. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Raul outta those 3

    5. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years

      Jime Jime Jime a man after midnight

    6. Ibralicious
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      A is a pretty solid pick atm, need to see how Jesus performs

  2. MrCloppity
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Martinez
    TAA, Lamptey, Saiss
    Costa, Salah, Son, KDB, James.R
    Jimenez, DCL

    Nyland, Mitchell, Justin, Brewster

    Thoughts please?

    1. diabydoesgallas
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      When one of your midfielders goes off the boil it’s gonna take two FTs to get rid of Brewster. Worth considering..

      1. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Swap him for a different midfielder?

        1. diabydoesgallas
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          If you’re set on playing 352, then yeah that’s fair enough.

    2. AlternativeB
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Almost the same as me (except Costa-->Podence, Brewster-->Bamford)

      • Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        I like it, exactly the same as the WC team I drew up but I had Podence in place of Costa and Steer in place of Nyland

    3. Gazpilicueta
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I'm looking for a set and forget, which price bracket do you prefer, and which keeper in that bracket?

      A) 4.5 cheap and simple, lots of save points
      B) 5.0 enough calue for a decent defense
      C) 5.5 top quality keeper, top quality points

      Id love to hear your thoughts, I like Guaita, but will Palace be solid for a while?

      1. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        A - Think Martinez or even Ryan are worth the saving on the 5.0 boys

      2. Ser Davos
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        I wonder if we should be grateful Darlow is 5, could have been a trap at 4

        With keepers I'd say pick the best keeper as an individual. Remember Adrian at 4.5 for Pool useless asset because he himself was useless

        Guaita and Martinez look the best keepers, just as Pope and Henderson looked the best keepers last year

      3. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Yeah I personally think A is the best for set and forget, Martinez is a lot of value for 4.5 and those funds can be used better elsewhere for sure

      4. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        If I could afford it I would go Guaita. But that 0.5 goes a surprisingly long way when you’ve got bugger all team value

    4. Ibralicious
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Pick 2 to start:

      A) Mitchell (EVE- H)
      B) Podence (WHU- A)
      C) Justin (MCI- A)
      D) Taylor (SOU- H)

      Currently on B & D. Cheers!

      1. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Between A and D surely, D for me

        1. Ibralicious
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Thanks

      2. potatoace
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        B. Deffo
        D. Likely him , for the lob pass over the high line.

        1. Ibralicious
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Fair enough, cheers

      3. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        B has to start, no question.

        Toss up between Mitchell & Taylor.

        1. Ibralicious
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Thanks, was leaning towards Taylor atm

    5. Ser Davos
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Remember the days of Barry Ferguson and Charlie Adam mopping up the bonus in 10-11? Were so outraged 😆

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

        I remember Berbatov smashing 5 goals in one game
        Everybody then transferred him in
        He did next to nothing for the next 5 or 6 gameweeks .

        1. Ser Davos
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Very true. I had him for his Pool hat trick and then sold. He was quiet in the weeks prior to that game too iirc

    6. Will J 256
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Which draft do you prefer on WC?
      1:
      Martinez
      Robertson, Saiss, C Taylor
      Salah, KDB, Son, Rodriguez, Podence,
      Calvert-Lewin, Jimenez

      Steer, Lamptey, Mitchell, Brewster

      2:
      Martinez
      Robertson, Saiss, James
      Salah, KDB, Greenwood, Rodriguez, Podence,
      Richarlison, Jimenez

      Steer, Lamptey, Mitchell, Brewster

      You can just put a 1 or 2 in the chat!

      1. AlternativeB
          2 months, 7 days ago

          1

        • Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          I prefer 2 because it has a couple of different names to the usual WC template

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

        Shaq magic free kick.

        Sell Salah!

      3. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        So... Err... Foden with three starts in right days?

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

          *eight days, even

      4. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Foden starting is annoying for my wildcard

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          You're not possible picking a team for 1 GW.
          Don't let it affect your call.

          Have a decent first sub.

          1. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            This

        2. Ser Davos
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          It's the first test for us managers on WC without him in the team and no Europe

          1. The Handsome Hunk
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Means. Sorry didnt got you?

      5. Reeker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Do you think Mitchell has played well enough to hold on to his spot over Ferguson?

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

          Ferguson is a RB, Mitchell a LB.

          PVA is the worry for Mitchell.

        2. Laserface
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          They play on the opposite flanks

        3. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          I don’t think the two are related, one is left, the other right. PVA threatens Mitchell’s spot, Ferguson might usurp Ward.

      6. Amey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        To any poor soul left there with Alli in team.
        He's dropping in price tonight. Beware

      7. DAZZ

      8. Jake.l_8
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Thoughts on this WC team? (1.4ITB)

        Martinez
        James - VVD - Saiss - Lamptey
        Salah - KDB - Son - Podence
        Werner - Jimmy

        Mitchell - Burke - Brewster

        Where do you suggest I spend my extra money? Defense or Bench? Thanks!

        1. Laserface
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          VVD to Trent/Robbo should be worth it imo

      9. Chung8
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Jesus v Leicester
        Or
        Jimi v west ham?

        1. Laserface
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Jesus

      10. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Is Christensen not supposed to be flagged for the red card he got vs LFC?

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

          Served the suspension last night.

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Hate this professional foul thing.
            A straight RC should be at least 3 games ban.

            Dangerous play can be more than 3.
            Minimum should be 3 though.

            1. diabydoesgallas
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              Why?

              1. Amey
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 7 days ago

                Intentional fouling without even going for ball is as anti football as it gets for me.

                I know you take one for the team and all. But should be bigger punishment to stop. It

        2. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

        Tempted to go sterling over salah - for 3 gws

        Arsenal have done well against pool recently

        ARS avl eve vs LEI lee ARS

        Thoughts?

        1. Here Comes The Son ★
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Doing the same.

          It makes the decision much easier when you know you aren't captaining Salah over the next 3. I'm switching between Kev and Raz

        2. Amey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          There is upside for sure

        3. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Make sure you keep enough coin in the bank to make the switch later on. I’m sure the temptation to spend it will be strong!

        Martinez
        TAA, Saiss, James/Keane
        Salah, KDB, Barnes, Havertz, Foden

      18. Srv210
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        With no other pool defender ,which one looks better

        A) Son + Justin
        B) Robertson/TAA + Pereira/Townsend(6.5m mid,already have Foden)

        1. The Handsome Hunk
          • 6 Years

          B with Trossad

          Son look good, but I don't trust Mourinho at all, those 4 goals was a freak caused by Southamtpon + Justin a transfer to happen

          So B for me

                  Arsenal will score this GW, don’t think I’d want both pool defenders playing

                    Not benching 7m mids, what defenders 😉

                Foden running the game, just created a clear chance

                Torn between the 6.5m strikers and 7m mids for value.

                Beat option?

                A) Vinagre/Taylor & Zaha/Barnes

                B) Saiss & Wood

                Better FPL PTS scorer forward (no matter the fixtures)
                A)Bamford
                B)Antonio
                C)Maupay

                I'm favouring Maupay due to Brighton's improvement this year and he is also on pens.
                What do you think?

                *It's a long term planned transfer this is why I don't care about fixtures rn

                Any chance martial avoids a drop before deadline?
