Scoutcast Episode 346 – Leicester stars gather Fantasy interest

Joe and Az are joined by Fantasy Football Community’s Holly to look ahead to Gameweek 4 and try to make sense of the previous week’s fixtures.

With Manchester City beaten by Leicester City and West Ham United seeing off Wolverhampton Wanderers, it was one of the oddest Gameweeks that our Scoutcast trio can remember.

Popular captaincy choices Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) and Timo Werner (£9.4m) blanking made it a particularly tough week for many, as Az’s rundown of the community’s ‘rough with the smooth’ Gameweek 3 scores reveals.

Many FPL managers need a quick fix after a tricky start to the season – and this is where Leicester’s players may be able to help. Across all outfield positions, the East Midlanders have form and great fixtures on their side. Joe, Az and Holly answer the community’s key questions about the Foxes as they prepare for their favourable run of games.

Midfield is a particular area of concern for Son Heung-min (£9.0m) owners after the Spurs winger suffered an injury setback. The crew consider the best replacements, including some intriguing lower-priced alternatives.

Penalty takers could be top of many FPL managers’ shopping lists. With 20 penalties already this season, the merits of targeting those on spot-kick duties is debated.

Meanwhile, the next four fixtures are considered, Holly chooses a differential, and transfer and captaincy plans are revealed.

Will they take swift action to propel themselves up the FPL rankings?

      I like your 11 though not crazy about your bench. GTG for now.

    4. Shineonme
      • 4 Years

      rather DLC over Maupay

  3. Bruce Lee

    What are Son owners doing?

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      He has gone.

    2. Drizz ✅
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      swap to Bruno FC

    3. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Planning to ditch for a 1 week punt before I play my WC after GW4.

      Considering:
      Mane
      Rodriguez
      Barnes
      Bruno
      Auba

    4. SuperG
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Holding. Think he’ll play. Jose said as much. And even if he doesn’t, almost certain to come back after IB. Form looks irresistible.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Got rid for Mahrez and regretting it. I should have held.

      1. Shineonme
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        why are you regretting it.? He was the other player I considered for exchange for Son.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Because Son is the biggest priority player for me. Starting in GW5 he has WHU bur BHA wba. I mistakenly thought he'd be out for longer.

          Now, I'll need to reverse the transfer or lose Havertz to get him back. That's 2 precious transfers that I'll be behind on.

    6. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      sold for Barnes. Will use the 2 mill next gw to upgrade elsewhere

    7. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Gone, but for KDB. Likely buying back in a couple weeks.

  4. Jellyfish
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Ross Berkley at 5.9m added to watchlist

    1. Drizz ✅
      • 8 Years

      And it starts

      You know it makes sense!

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Decent signing for us. Thinking Smith will look to play him in CMF as a replacement for Connor

        1. NateDogsCats
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Do you think Hourihane is likely to be dropped or rotated a lot? Been in good form since the restart or around then and takes some setpieces, can't say I haven't been tempted to put him in a few times over the last year.

          • Liberate HK - antichinazi
            • 2 Years

            Please let Grealish take back the corner duties in such case.

      Martinez

        Rich a but expensive for my taste. Downgrade to DCL and upgrade James to the Leicester fullback?

        1. Malinwa
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Rich takes the pens for Everton?

          1. iL PiStOlErO
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Not sure now with all these new signings. Maybe James will take them now.

            1. Better off with a pin and a…
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Rich took one last weekend with DCL and James on the pitch.

          2. SuperG
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Until he misses. Just can’t see him out scoring dcl, who is 600k cheaper.

      2. FOMFF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Wouldn't have James. I love the look of Castagne, could switch him for Justin and James to Lamptey or KWP

      3. Shineonme
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        don't really like the James pick and would rather have DLC over Rich

    4. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Werner -> Ings, for free?

      1. Drizz ✅
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Would hold

      2. Lindelol

        already did last night

      3. SuperG
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        On it like a car bonnet. Ings could easily bag a hat trick.

      4. Shineonme
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        no way not this week anyway

      Rashford 6th on the midfielders watchlist.

      Factors: C, VsX

      1. Deulofail
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Martial 3rd.

        C, VsX.

        Ha!

      2. Rotation's Alter Ego
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        I'm just about to do an update for that one actually.

        Currently got Rashford 4th, B VsX (only just, super boarderline there)
        Removed Martial all together. That tool isn't really aimed at a manager of your quality though 😉

        1. Deulofail
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          My quality! You are a funny one!

          I don't remember looking at the watchlist in 2020, but maybe I should start. Seems a bit reactionary for someone to go from 3rd to off the chart though, considering the factors haven't changed much in 1 week.

          1. Rotation's Alter Ego
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            It's really not! We get people coming on who want to replace a player, say, Son and have no idea who to get. The idea is someone with no real FPL knowledge could come on, look at the list, and pick the first player they can afford. The idea there is to help people that may now pick say Podence as a cheap midfielder instead of someone like Moutinho (though I did see FPL Scout recommending him today...) based on that. There's some parts that a manager like yourself could pick out, but I don't need to tell you that TAA is a good pick for example!

            More of a price point thing. It's not explained, but I have to balance the number of players at each price point so there's a nice clean spread, I don't actually think March is the 10th best mid for example. As a result, some players will inexplicably pop on and off, not necessarily because I think they're out of the top 10 but because there's other players similar to them that I need to put on ahead.

            Mahrez for example - I want to include him, but I also need to put KDB and Sterling on, plus Foden in the mid bracket. I won't put 4 City mids on the list at once (3 is incredibly rare as is) so he misses out.

            1. Deulofail
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              That's why I have 3 City and 3 United attackers. People avoid options that are individually good because they like to "spread" the "risk"/fun by avoiding double and triple ups. Thanks for helping the cause 😉

              I understand the restrictions of the watchlist, but perhaps it needs a rethink or redefinition or rename. Idk it doesn't really make a difference for me, as you say. But the factors don't seem to be overly important.

              1. Rotation's Alter Ego
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                Oh I don't think going something like triple attack is bad at all - I just have to give fair representation to all the teams! If I can't find around 7 players in each position from different teams that are good options, I have no business sitting here telling people what I think!

                I could list out all the Liverpool defenders for example and have them dominate the list, but that's of interest to absolutely nobody. Instead I'll include a player like Konsa because he's a set piece target in a strong (ish) looking defence. Would I prefer a Liverpool defender? Of course! But with the top 2 picks (this upcoming week) set to be the Liverpool full backs, I think people get the idea. Far less likely that a manager (a casual one I mean, but you could even extend it to players on here) would consider Konsa.

                1. Deulofail
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 24 days ago

                  Hmm, then take TAA off the watchlist then...?

        2. stat sifter 888888
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Rotation what do you think about Rashford vs Penandes?

            1. Rotation's Alter Ego
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              I have no interest in Bruno Fernandes honestly, until I see him starting to properly sizzle. Rashford may well come in for me this week.

              Not keen on comparing directly because 10.5m strangely feels more than a mil more than 9.5m, if that makes any sense

              1. stat sifter 888888
                  1 month, 24 days ago

                  Good call imo. Wish I hadn't got so depressed with watching Man U influencing decisions last week and put him in. Hopefully I can switch next week without losing too many points this GW.

                • Goonsquad245
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 24 days ago

                  10.5m midfielder is a horrific price point this season, particularly when you’re paying it for someone that’s overpriced.

                  1. Flair
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    1 month, 24 days ago

                    What's your reasoning behind that statement?

          • stat sifter 888888
              1 month, 24 days ago

              I'm kind of regretting getting depressed over pens and picking Penandes instead of Rashy. He's a great option that always looks like a dangerous point-scorer whenever I watch him. Much cheaper as well.

              No idea what to do here with 0.2m and 1FT. However, i want to get Salah by latest gw6 so need to plan accordingly.

              Martinez
              Taa James Saiss -- Lamptey Mitchell
              Foden KDB Havertz Son
              Jimmy DCL Werner

              A: Son >> Barnes...and then Havertz/Werner >> Salah/7.5m fwd in gw6
              B: Son + Werner >> Salah + Maupay (-4)
              C: Something else

                Son & Werner to James Rod & Ings

                Havertz to Salah

                or a mixture, because you really should have Salah this week

              Who do you think is the better pick for the next several fixtures.
              A. Ings
              B. Jimenez

                B

                1 month, 24 days ago

                I would bet on Ings to score more

                  Me too. For Southampton Ings will be more involved compared to Jimenez at Wolves. That makes Ings the better pick.

                      Don't agree, Ings is almost playing as a winger in a 4-3-3 with Adams up top. Jimmy is the focal point for Wolves's attack and is always in the box.

                  i'd expect them to be very similar. just never fancy jimenez as a captaincy option.

                      Ings in general, but probably Jimenez short-term and Ings longer-term

                    B, Ings is having to do more than Jimmy in a weaker team. It won't last.

                      Why Maupay? I'm curious. Like Antonio better myself.

                        Gut feeling mostly. Brighton so far have looked much improved on last season and with the way they're playing I think they'll get a decent amount of penalties as well this season plus new handball rules could increase that even more. (i know about the leniency thing but it'll still be more than normal). He had a decent score last season with only the 1 penalty and could reach around 180 this time i think.

                  I liked the look of Rash in the last game, also scored a nice goal. Are people considering him? Or would you all rather have Bruno?

                    1 month, 24 days ago

                    I'm considering Son to Rash

                    1. iL PiStOlErO

                      Same here. Easy switch and I have a feeling he will have great season again. Plus that allows me to have Jimmy upfront instead of DCL.

                      1. sumatera
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 10 Years
                        1 month, 24 days ago

                        Not sure Jimmy is better than DCL buddy

                        1. stat sifter 888888
                            1 month, 24 days ago

                            Jimmy will still most likely slightly out-score DCL this year. Due to start firing this GW I hope.

                            1. iL PiStOlErO
                              • 1 Year
                              1 month, 24 days ago

                              Same here. DCL is great but Jimmy should match him in the next few. Also bigger differential.

                      Bruno certainly worth 1m more if you can afford it. Rash seems a bit overpriced at 9.5 not on pens.

                    3. Flair
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      1 month, 24 days ago

                      Rash is nice but penalties greatly favor Bruno

                      bruno! but 2.1mil difference in price, so...

                        • 8 Years

                        Bruno with ease

                      • 10 Years
                      1 month, 24 days ago

                      Its about affordability
                      Bruno if you're rich

                    3. No Professionals
                      • 3 Years

                      Bruno, nailed, pens, genuine captain option

                      1 month, 24 days ago

                      If you take into account the (very significant) price difference, Mahrez.

                        Not a guaranteed starter ; at that price that's a huge risk.

                    Best mid for 6.9? (I know such an annoying amount!)

                          I think(don’t quote me) that he will be on pens too.
                          From I can see, it says Austin and Zahore were Broms penalty takers and as they’re not playing, I assume Pereira will have them...

                      He's leaving, really just a question of sell or loan. Someone will break, whether that's Liverpool or the suitors remains to be seen.

                    Thoughts on Ross Barkley at Villa for 5.9m could be a good move for him?

                      For him it's great. For Villa it's great. For FPL . . hmm.

                    Looking ahead at my watchlist and when I am likely to bring players from it in. Soucek looks great from GW8, wonder if he has penalties too with Noble not starting. Must be between him and Antonio. He took a fair few last season and has an overall record of 10/13

                      Antonio on pens if no-ble.

                        Based on? I know he took that one last season (possibly his only career pen) but I thought that was because he was one goal shy of a some form of goals bonus.

                          Yeah noble even confirmed it after the game that it was a one off

                            Could be a huge scramble for Soucek if he is on pens with Antonio on the pitch.

                      Kouyate, March, Soucek. These should really be on your mind

                      • 5 Years

                      Soucek

                      • 10 Years
                      1 month, 24 days ago

                      Soucek the best option, followed by March.

                    4. Major League Shocker
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      If you've already got Soucek, consider Kalvin Phillips. Third best in Creativity among all mids, created 9 chances (1 less than Hamez).

                      1. Camzy
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        He's also on FKs. But I avoided because he plays as a DM.

                      Declan Rice is probably being unfairly overlooked because of Soucek - I guess you don't want two 5m WH mids though...

                          Soucek, Diangana looks good

                    2. NateDogsCats
                        1 month, 24 days ago

                        I'd definitely get rid of Vinagre and Lemina, Doherty hasn't been great so far either and is expensive, although looks like Spurs played with wingbacks last night so he might improve the next few games. Could downgrade to Reguilon.

                        Cut Werner, not a pen taker and Palace/Soton both defend well.
                        Save money get a budget striker in then upgrade that midfield. Bissouma Pereira Lemina are all too weak, absolute max two budget midfielders needed

                      Play wildcard and choose to target pen takers instead of my preferred value players, then 1 week later the PL decides to change the handball rules again. Why am I not surprised.... :rolleyes:

                      Is Mahrez a valid option now with Sterling playing as the false 9 and struggling and De Bruyne in a deeper role?

                      How nailed down a starter on the right wing is Mahrez, he obviously has competition from Ferran Torres but seems to be in the incumbent?

                      How likely is he to start the next few games. Guardiola does random things and often rotates which is a worry because I think Mahrez has real goal/assist threat and could be a great differential.

                        Pep could change it up as it didnt work last GW and start Delap

                        KDB isn't in a deeper role, City are playing 4-2-3-1 with him as a 10.

                      4. NateDogsCats
                          1 month, 24 days ago

                          Torres, Bernardo Silva and Foden all competing with him for that spot when fit and when Jesus / Aguero fit (and sounds like they both might be in contention after the IB). He gets points when he plays generally, though. But if it's a short term move not so sure I'd do it.

                          1. baines is god

                            Yeah was thinking for the next 4/5 gameweeks before Jesus gets back then sell. City don't have great fixtures but will still likely score 2/3 goals a game. Is B Silva injured now?

                            1. NateDogsCats
                                1 month, 24 days ago

                                Yeah I haven't a clue when he's due back either, been missing since before preseason I believe. I actually thought he might move slightly more central like during parts of his first season with David Silva gone but will have to see. If you're planning on having him for 4/5 weeks then maybe go for it, but it sounds like both Jesus and Aguero will be back after the break so maybe wait and see unless you have no City cover for the next couple of game gameweeks.

                            It just depends on your personality. Not many of us are prepared to cope with an 8.5 mid who gets rotated as much as he does.

                            Could be the highest scoring player this week. Easy swap to Pulisic/Havertz, Zaha, Barnes, etc.

                            Sterling in a false 9 and struggling and KDB in a deeper role you say?

                              The first part is true.

                              To be fair, Sterling looked poor and KDB did drop deeper when Delap came on. I don’t think Pep will start with Delap so KDB should be back as a 10 for the Leeds game.

                                I have a strange feeling that Pep will start with Delap.

                            Martial out for Jimmy or Ings. Probably not worth a hit to sell Werner.

                              interesting, i'm on werner to go before martial. At least utd know a formation and position and are just missing (but are gaining) match sharpness

                                  Chelsea could have Pulisic and Ziyech both fit and ready to go for GW5, with Havertz starting behind Werner as CF. Not saying don't do it as Lampard might still struggle a bit to get things to gel (or they could face further setbacks) but maybe hang on and see what shape they're in after the break.

                              Given this weeks fixtures I'd either hold or trade Martial for Ings. Longer term. . . I may well hold.

                                Who would you rather have in your team?

                                Bruno + Pereira

                                Rashford + Rodriguez

                                Ings + Havertz

                                  Bruno and Pereira for now.

                                    This is where I am swinging at the moment. Bruno pens and Pereira form and fixtures

                                      Yeah, I feel like Man Utd can play like absolute dog turd and Bruno will still get returns.. If Chelsea start clicking then I'd say C would be better.

                                Not sure what to do given Jose's mind games.. Would you sell or keep Son with this team? 0.5 itb.
