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?

    Mccarthy Nyland
    TAA Robertson Shaw Dier Vinagre
    Salah Mount Podence Romeu Stephens
    Kane Ings Vardy

    2 Free Transfers.
    Option A-Kane + Stephens >> Maupay + Mahrez
    Option B Kane + Shaw >> Werner + Saiss
    Option C Kane + Stephens >> Jimenez + Trossard
    Option D Shaw > Coady and save 1 transfer.

    Can't see United keeping many clean sheets in upcoming games and Wolves have 4 great fixtures.
    Spurs fixtures good after United away but only averaging just over 1 goal per game under Jose

    1. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Not B anyway

    2. Pariße
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I don't think getting rid of Kane is necessary, could explode any time. Can you do Shaw to Saiss? This one is not necessary either, Shaw aint such a bad pick on the longterm.

      1. baines is god
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        annoyingly not. Worried Vinagre might drop out if Marcal's back too

        1. Pariße
          • 5 Years

      Wasn't everyone saying yesterday to drop Werner as long as it wasn't for a hit?

      The opinion on here about Werner seems to have shifted from extremely negative to fairly neutral, just because of one goal scored against a weakened Spurs team in the League Cup. Way too big a shift imo.

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I like B, funds a future move for Robbo if you like that.

      1. Your Man With The Hair
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Looks good, but need a strong first sub to cover Foden likely rotations.

      2. Shineonme
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        couldn't you do mitro > DLC if the funds allow if not downgrade Robbo to Leicester defender

      3. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Mitro should not be in your WC team

    6. Cheeto__Bandito
        2 months, 1 day ago

        A) Mahrez Castagne

        B) Barnes, Robertson

        James or Havertz?

        1. Pariße
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          James definitely for now. Chance creation beast.

          1. Dynamic Duos
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            AA don't score points

        2. Atletico Junior
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Went for Havertz... Absolutely nailed. He will come good, his constant runs to the box and brilliant technique making that last pass will get points. Plus, he *might* be on PKs without Jorginho.

      • Silent Friend
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Barkley joining Villa = great news for Grealish because he will replace Hourihane (who steal all Grealish set pieces)

        1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Barkley probably on direct freekicks tho

        2. No Professionals

          barkley replaces someone for 2 weeks, villa realise he is a waste of space, barkley warms the bench.

        My weekly musings for those who are interested.

        - Liverpool look like they are really hitting the kind of form that saw them storm to the league title last season. The time looks ripe for a defensive double up. Robbo and TAA both looked sharp against Chelsea going forward and everything points to them racking up more CS soon. Liverpool's first choice defenders and GK are fit and they have very good fixtures. No other defender above 5mil is really of much interest.

        - Son's injury has effected many managers and their planning. I do think that for patient managers or for those who have a strong bench, keeping Son is a viable option. I believe that Jose mentioned that he hopes Son will be back after the IB where's Spurs fixtures are Whm, Bur, Bri, Wba. So it is possible he only misses the Man United game. Also the fact that he went off at half-time suggests to me that it wasn't a bad injury but more precautionary in nature. If looking at Son replacements, I think Mahrez is the one with the biggest potential. He looked sharp in his first outing of the season and the Leeds fixture could be a goalfest. He always comes with a benching risk of course, but his potential upside will probably be worth it - and with Jesus, Kun and Bernardo out, his starting place should be more secure than usual.

        - I've mentioned this price-point before with Barnes, Grealish and Zaha. But I think another 7.0 differential midfielder of note is about to emerge. James Maddison (2.8% ownership) scored a great goal vs City and is easing his way back to full fitness. He looks like a player who is always on the verge of getting FPL points: passing the eye test, on FKs and corners, but maybe not always transferring that potential into goals and assists. But a small bit of improvement in terms of his end product could see him become fantastic value. Leicester look surprisingly good and with favourable fixtures, Maddison could be in for some nice returns. I feel its only a matter of time before he starts playing 90mins again, and while there are probably too many more solid options to go for around the price, I feel he might be a good punt for those who love a real differential.

        1. Gravless are for Kinnear
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Does Jose have a history of playing down injuries to key players? If so, he may be doing the same with Son.
          Does Jose have a history of rushing key players back from injury? He did it with Kane last season.

          Unless Son's injury is genuinely not serious, I fear the above for him

          1. Collie01
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            I'm not sure what Jose's history with injured players is. I didn't see the match but to the best of my knowledge, it was a surprise when Son didn't re-emerge for the 2nd half so I presume he didn't look injured in the first half and presume it wasn't a particularly bad injury. He has played a lot of minutes recently and might just be more tightness than anything else. I currently have Son and will probably take him out as part of a -8 (Ayling who has City is my only bench player). But I wouldn't be entirely surprised to see Son playing GW5 (after the IB).

            1. Gravless are for Kinnear
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Cheers. I'll take him out too for this week. Having a WC intact provides the luxury of experimenting

        2. Fit_to_drop
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Agree on 1. Son might be a hold but not a buy. Maddison is a bit of a punt until he gets more games under his belt. Finished last season poorly despite the early season form and point scoring. Thanks for the update.

        3. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Don't agree with the Liverpool clean sheet bit. They looked vulnerable because of how attacking the fullbacks were. If lacazette had any confidence or clinical shooting he would have scored 2 more goals on them. But a double would still be good with most other defenders failing to inspire.

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            They also conceded a penalty against chelsea and were lucky to keep that clean sheet

      • howsonisnow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Son + Kane to...

        a) Mahrez + Vardy
        b) Bruno + Ings

        Both involve a hit, 0.7m ITB.

        1. Fiqz Fariss
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Son > Mahrez

          1. Shineonme
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            if Mahrez playes tonight I wouldn't. Rather so son to barnes plus the extra 2 mill will come in handy.

      • Fiqz Fariss
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Quick question, Son, Werner > Auba (C GW4), Maupay worth a hit -4?

        my current team

        Ryan (Steer)
        TAA, KWP, Justin (Davies, Mitchell)
        Salah, Auba, Greenwood, Son, Podence
        Werner, Mitrovic (Brewster)

        1. Fiqz Fariss

          2 months, 1 day ago

          Werner, Son > Auba, Maupay
          (-4)

          yay or nay?

          1. Shineonme
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            I wouldn't be getting rid of werner for a hit definitely not with his next 2 games.

      • danlynch13
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Who’s the better pick

        Klich or Podence (if fit)

        1. Fit_to_drop
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Same conundrum below. Have had Podence since Day 1. Very impressed with him at end of season and reason NES was happy to sell Jota. Sticking with him and hope he is back fit. Klich has penos but still think Podence can easily have double figure games.

        2. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Podence has the ability to break out ; Klich you're literally hoping for pens.

        3. Shineonme
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          if fit Pod

      • Fit_to_drop

        On WC, which attack line do you prefer?

        KDB Salah Townsend Klich Podence
        Bamford Vardy Wilson

        KDB Salah Foden Soucek 4.5
        Bamford Vardy Wilson

          Savage as always. Here's hoping for a Sterling haul...he got his match time tonight and has found his shooting boots

          Love this podcast!

          Great audio quality. Don't labour discussions. Analysis on the money and not sitting on the fence with too many caveats. Good in depth quality. Adapting by getting rid of segments in the podcast that don't have much energy and talking about the topics that matter

          I think its the best podcast in FPL world.
          There are many really good ones, no doubt, like my favourite FPL Black Box or reliable Scoutcast but I think FPL Wire is top class.
          There are just important topics without any boring stuff, a lot of useful informations and interesting point of view of 3 really good managers. I also like that their style is different so everybody can find something interesting there.
          Every week I cant wait to watch another episode. Really good work!

        For how long is Jimmy Dunne from Burnley nailed on?
        And who is he playing in place for?

        1. F_Ivanovic
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Ben Mee and Tarkowski are first choice for Burnley. Tarkowski could potentially come back this weekend and I imagine he's more likely to take the place of the other centre back (who's older and hasn't played an awful lot in the past few seasons) but I can't be certain. Ben Mee is expected back after the IB.

            Oh, thanks for the detailed answer! Much appreciated

          I think Tark is tools down trying to force a move... He might not get much game time this season.

        -4 to get Bruno in? He'll be in my team for the season I should imagine and will take the captaincy when United's fixtures turn.

          Bruno's positioning re his np-xGI is concerning when DVB is on the pitch. I would wait.

        Justin and Mitchell still good to get on a WC or look for other nailed players?

        1. skodaole2
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Mitchell had a great start it’s his place to lose. Justin also started really well and I don’t know if the manager will change a winning defence when Pereira is fit. I kept Justin in my WC team and if he loses his place is only one transfer to fix that

        2. AuFeld
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I'm sticking. Great rotation.

      • skodaole2
        • 8 Years

        Taken a hit Son + Watkins our for KDB and Jimenez. Anything to change or any more hits needed in this team?

        McCarthy
        Castagne Justin Reece J.

            Was top 5th highest scoring about half way last season, behind 4 premiums

        2. SHOOTER MCGINN
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          IB WC team as it stands:

          Martinez (Nyland/Steer)
          TAA Robbo VVD (Lamptey Mitchell)
          KDB Bale Pulisic Podence (Bissouma)
          Jimi DCL Maupay

          Can't wait for it to fall apart over the next few weeks.

          Activated WC and pretty happy with the core of my team but it's the subs I'm currently unsure about.

          I started the season with Ferguson, is it worth to still keep him or should I go for Mitchell? I would need to find 0.1 from somewhere which would probably mean going from Burke to Stephens. Dunne I'm also a little unsure of but I have 2 Liv defenders and planning on playing Lamptey most weeks anyway.

          1. The Littlest Robbo
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            If Shu sign Brewster then Burke becomes a no go, regardless I would still choose Stephens over Burke as the whole point of a fodder is to save as much money as possible.

            Isn't Clyne signing a possibility? I would think if that happened Clyne would be first choice rb

        5. BremerHB
          • 3 Years

          Which of these WC teams is better?

          A)
          Martinez - Steer
          TAA - Robbo - Lamptey - KWP - Mitchell
          Salah - KDB - Trossard - Pereira
          Jiménez - Rich - DCL

          B)
          Martinez - Steer
          TAA - Castagne - Lamptey - KWP - Mitchell
          Salah - KDB - Trossard - Barnes
          Jiménez - Ings - DCL

              Thanks. Why “easy”?

                Double pool def and double Everton attack.. too many eggs in one basket

                1. BremerHB
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  A fair point! Cheers.

                • 1 Year
                2 months, 1 day ago

                And I like castagne, Barnes more

                1. BremerHB
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Barnes has excellent stats. Castagne I’m not entirely sold on but with those results so far, can’t really argue.

          2. F_Ivanovic
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Tough one..probably A because I like double pool defence but not as keen on double Everton strikers (that's just personal preference tho)

            1. BremerHB
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              I would rather have constellation A but with Ings instead of Richarlison however not sure where I would get the money from to be honest...

                  How about my suggestion below? Thanks

          4. JURGENAUT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Or I can do:

            Justin > Castagne
            Klich > Anguissa

            And play 4-3-3 with Mitchell

            0.1 ITB.

            Keep or switch? I think the existing combination is more fruitful
