The best FFScout Community articles ahead of Gameweek 4

Welcome to a new regular feature capturing the latest talking points in the Fantasy Football Scout Community as we turn our attention to Gameweek 4.

Here we bring to your attention some of the best articles submitted through our Community Trials initiative, which is part of our ongoing mission to support budding contributors and creators.

This piece will also cover the latest in the Community mini-leagues and competitions.

How to avoid feeling Blue

Chelsea have been the subject of much debate over the past week. In his Community article, Blues-fan James878 cautioned against owning members of Frank Lampard’s defence:

I would like clear evidence of improvement in the backline before going anywhere near those Chelsea assets.

– James878

Advice that was borne out in Gameweek 3 as Chelsea shipped three goals to newly-promoted West Brom

Meanwhile, Portsmouth Bubblejet highlighted the problems of accommodating their exciting summer-signings, Timo Werner (£9.4m) and Kai Havertz (£8.4m), in their favoured – and most effective – positions.

But Chelsea-fan AK countered that once the injured Christian Pulisic (£8.3m) and Hakim Ziyech (£7.9m) return we should see a better balance to the first XI. And he argued that Werner can operate effectively as a No 9.

Elsewhere, managers have been asking what to do with the injured Son Heung-Min (£9.0m) – although it transpired today that the South Korean has a very small chance of playing this weekend. And I shared my thoughts about the unpredictable results we’ve seen so far. 

Value and Formation

Three members of the 12-strong The Great and The Good deployed their Wildcards ahead of Gameweek 3, although disappointingly not one received an immediate green arrow. The refreshed squads of Lateriser, Ville Ronka, and Meet the Manager guest Sean Tobin were examined by Greyhead in his latest offering.

The ageing wizard speculated that a formation switch to 3-4-3 might be on the cards, given the number of goals and penalties seen so far. Messrs Calvert-Lewin, Wilson and Maupay would appear to provide more value than a mid-range fifth midfielder.

This is a view shared by Steven Reinaldo Rusli who found that the best-performing forwards are currently offering better value than the best-performing midfielders. Delving into non-penalty expected goals, he predicts this trend will continue: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.4m), Michail Antonio (£6.4m) and Richarlison (£8.0m) are all posting impressive underlying statistics compared to their midfield counterparts.

Meanwhile, value was the subject of an in-depth analysis from TorpedoToien in his Moneyball Perspective.

Casting his net as far back as 2014/15, the Community scribe made some interesting discoveries. The first is the importance of playing time:

On average going from 60 to 80 minutes played per Gameweek resulted in an increase of 20 points per season for defenders and midfielders and 30 points per season for forwards. It might not look like much, but across the 10 outfield players in your team, it will make a difference of 200 points a season.

– TorpedoToien

Over the last six seasons, the best value player in FPL based on starting price is Riyad Mahrez. Costing a mere £5.5m in Leicester’s title-winning campaign, the Algerian averaged a whopping 43.6 points per million.

However TorpedoToien notes:

Mahrez is one of just 11 midfielders or forwards among the 47 [to average 30 points per million or higher]. The remaining 36 are goalkeepers and defenders.

– TorpedoToien

Before examining goalkeepers in detail, he suggests that two benefits of favouring defenders could be:

  • Higher points per million compared to midfielders or forwards
  • Fewer attacking options to rotate, making transfer management easier

But in the comments section, Giggs Boson challenged this approach pointing out that we get 37 free transfers, two Wildcards and a Free Hit to change our teams. And, if we are willing to spend four points, we can make as many transfers as we want. 

Over a good set of fixtures, even a £12.0m player can be good value. If you dilute the money across the team, you can’t take advantage of the fixtures as well. You’re making lower impact transfers moving around £7.0m-£8.0m players than you are moving £11.5m-£12.0m players.

– Giggs Boson

Over the summer Hedge took his yearly look at player value, concluding that last season 3-4-3 and just one £10.0m+ player would have been the optimal strategy. The tricky part is obviously identifying those value-for-money players.

Like TorpedoToien, Hedge promotes a premium defender strategy but does favour a rotating £4.5m pair for one slot.

To help us identify this year’s must-own players, FPL Fetish submitted his eye-test review of Gameweek 3. Tariq Lamptey (£4.6m), Leandro Trossard (£6.0m), Solly March (£5.0m) and Neal Maupay (£6.5m) impressed for Brighton, while Tomas Soucek (£5.0m) and Michail Antonio (£6.4m) did likewise for West Ham.

Finally, Meltens previewed Gameweek 22 in Fantasy Allsvenskan and GAFFR.io looked ahead to Gameweek 3 in Fantasy Championship.

Fantasy Football Scout Mini-Leagues

League code: 5u05vz
Eligibility: Open to all

There are currently 47,734 people participating in the open-to-all Fantasy Football Scout mini-league.

Straight in at number one is Iddi Marzuk. A new entry this week, Iddi is 73rd overall after captaining Son for a 121-point haul in Gameweek 2 and then playing his Wildcard for 57 points in Gameweek 3.

Iddi is one point ahead of Devika Tiwari and last week’s leader حسام احمد (Hossam Ahmed) who share second place.

Fantasy Football Scout Community Members

League code: Available on Members page
Eligibility: Open to those with a registered FFScout account – paid or free.

Hamdy Sameeh takes over at the top of the Fantasy Football Scout Community Members mini-league and bags himself the first prize of the season. Hamdy wins the Manager of the Month award for September and takes home a £50 Amazon voucher. Hamdy, please contact Geoff (geoff@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk) to claim your prize.

The mini-league leader is 145th overall. He triple captained Vardy in Gameweek 1, played his Wildcard in Gameweek 2, and Bench Boosted in Gameweek 3. This is his third season.

We’re dishing out £2,500-worth of giveaways throughout the season, however only those who have registered a Fantasy Football Scout account (paid or free) will be able to claim a prize. Also, managers must be registered one month in advance of the awarding of a specific prize to be eligible.

Head-to-Head Leagues

Five managers in League 1 have made 100%-winning starts to the new campaign. The leader on rank-difference is Tim Hill who beat defending Head-to-Head champion Craig Johnson (aka Bouncebackability) 50-36 in Gameweek 3.

Tim has been playing FPL for 14 years and has six top 10,000 finishes, putting him 90th in this site’s Career Hall of Fame.

Three managers have flown out of the blocks this season: Martin Lilov in Division 15 of League 5, Michel Sanchez in Division 89 of League 9, and Nura Lexa in Division 52 of League 7. They all rank inside the top 1,000 overall.

But despite his explosive start Michel dropped points to Janek Polska last time out. The Polish manager earned himself a draw thanks to Jamie Vardy’s heroics at the Etihad Stadium.

A fixtures table will be published in the Scout’s Guide to Gameweek 4 ahead of the deadline. However, if you can’t wait to find out who you are playing next, follow this link. Use your browser’s find in page function (Ctrl+F) to locate managers.

Elite Community Mini-Leagues

Anders Sundstrom is the new leader of RedLightning’s Top 10k Any Season mini-league (league code 8kcvzq). Anders is 1,938th in the overall standings and has one top 10,000 finish in his ten years of playing FPL. He came 6,911th in 2011/12.

Surging to the summit of PDM‘s Top 1k ANY season mini-league (league code 2agvvx) is Paddy McEvoy. The Liverpool fan has one end-of-season rank inside the top 1,000 which he achieved back in 2012/13.

Paddy has started well and currently sits inside the top 10,000. He played his Wildcard in Gameweek 2 and picked up a respectable 60 points in Gameweek 3. This is his 12th season.

Despite dropping slightly to 34,358th overall, Henry Rawlins is unmoved at the top of Chaballer’s Top 1k HoF League (league code mr8dyh). Henry is 233rd in our Hall of Fame (HoF) and his impressive history includes four top 10,000 finishes, the best of which was 117th in 2014/15.

Meanwhile, elite manager Emil Gustafsson, sixth in the HoF, has established a six-point lead in RedLightning’s Multiple Top 10k Finishes mini-league (league code 8t42p6). This is Emil’s ninth season playing FPL, his impressive history includes five top 10,000 finishes and an amazing four top 2,000 finishes in the last five years.

An inspired decision to captain Mason Mount helped 2017/18 FPL winner Yusuf Sheikh increase his lead to 39 points in Simon March’s exclusive FPL Champions League. FPL titleholder Joshua Bull moves up to second following a 17-point haul from Jamie Vardy.

Pros and Cons

The Fantasy Football Scout Network mini-league is for the Scout Network and includes the Pro Pundits

In first place after Gameweek 3 is Christos Tsaras Sui (aka FPL Greece). Christos is currently 6,901st overall in what is his 13th season. He has an impressive three top 10,000 ranks, the best of which was in 2017/18 when he reached 200 in the final standings.

Former Scoutcast member and Mark’s erstwhile nemesis Lee Cowen (aka Granville) sits proudly atop the FFS Mods & Cons mini-league. Granville is 86,381st overall and has finished three times in the top 10,000 since FPL’s first recorded season back in 2006/07.

Elsewhere, Baz Zahathevan retained top spot in Skooldaze’s FPL Vets 2006 or before mini-league while Daniel Arnott is the new leader of Greyhead’s The Next Great and The Good mini-league. Daniel has opened up a ten-point gap over previous leader Rami Sameh

And in the world of Fantasy Allsvenskan, Love Hallersby is flying high – not only the no 1 in our mini-league but also the overall no 1!

It’s an incredible achievement and, with eight Gameweeks to go, we’re all rooting for him to finish the season strongly. Love hasn’t dropped out of the top ten since Gameweek 10. 

The amorously-named manager followed up a 107-point score in Double Gameweek 21 with a solid 59 in Gameweek 22, thanks to a 14-pointer from Stefano Vecchia. He has his second Wildcard and Two Captain chips intact.

Second-placed Jonathan Fletcher has an overall rank of 18 and trails Love by 48 points. He captained Jesper Karlsson in his final game for Elfsborg before moving to Az Alkmaar, but the Swedish international could only muster a disappointing six points. Like Love Hallersby, Jonathan has the second Wildcard and Two Captain chips remaining.

TopMarx Fan of Fantasy Football and Monty Python. "Archimedes out to Socrates, Socrates back to Archimedes, Archimedes out to Heraclitus, he beats Hegel. Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.”

        A) Ings, Sterling (C), Taylor (-4)
        B) Werner, Barnes, Robertson (captain KDB)

        Best transfer option?

          B

          Keep your filthy nuts away from DCL

        • Sulley
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 5 hours ago

          Have Son and Werner and pretty average bench should I:

          Get rid of both (could do Jimi / Ings + Rashford / Barnes)

          Or just switch 1 or keep both. Latter seems risky as have Podence and Foden who aren’t guaranteed to start.

          Thoughts?

          1. Sulley
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 5 hours ago

            Or could keep Werner and switch out Son and Brewster for Jimi and a 4.5 mid

            1. Goro Majima
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 4 hours ago

              I'm thinking Barnes and Jimi at the moment. Don't fancy taking Son out for a cheap mid with having Foden & Podence also.

              1. Sulley
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 4 hours ago

                Yeah thinking the same. You double switching or just Son?

                  2 months, 4 hours ago

                  Not sure about Werner. Hasn’t looked like someone who is gonna get multiple returns

        • aapoman

          Does it make sense to wild card? Have 1ft. * Denotes a player I'm not 100% happy owning/injured.

          McCarthy*
          Taa Castagne Justin Saiss*

            8 or 12 pt hit should be enough. Do you have a FT?

            1. aapoman
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 5 hours ago

              I have 1ft. Don't really like taking -8 hits.

          Do we reckon Mahrez starting this weekend?

            Is DCL a must buy now over Jimenez? Surely he'll be rested this weekend after 90 mins? Right??

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years

              no. All their players are injured

              No way Ancelloti rests DCL in the current form he is on

            4. Andre W
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 5 hours ago

              Nope

            5. PL Ball
              • 9 Years

              Of course he'll play.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              Won’t be rested, but he’s not a must buy. Nobody is.

            7. Bushwhacker
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 4 hours ago

              Nah, he'll play. Whether he'll be as effective is another story.

                DCL already scored as many goals this season as he has in either of the last two. Can he keep it up? I highly doubt it.

                  • 10 Years
                  2 months, 5 hours ago

                  Obviously not, he'll hit a dry spell, but there is no reason why he can't do what someone like Ings done last season.

                  He's 7.5 mil as well, he doesn't have to keep up this rate of scoring. Would be a good season for him to finish on 170-180 points, and that's looking likely.

                  It's a different story under Ancellotti. Under Silva, Fat Sam and Koeman he wasn't even assured a start.

                Allan and Rich injured for Everton is a massive blow, kinda dampens DCL really

                  He scored 2 more goals without them

                    Do you really think he will be better (or even just as good) without Richarlison and Allan?
                    Then you're fooling yourself.
                    Ofc. you keep him if you own him, but as the poster writes it 'kinda dampens DCL really'.

                    Have watched their matches, and the amount of running around, dragging opponents to him, freeing up space for DCL, that Richarlison has put in is amazing. Allan is just the guy they needed. Distribution the balls, setting up the attacks, finding Rodriguez and stuff.

                    Without those two both DCL and Rodriguez will have much more attention and a way harder time scoring points.

                      And yet he scores 2 more 🙂 I'm happy keeping him

                        Ofc you are - why would you get rid? 🙂
                        This is about if you should buy him now or not.
                        2 hard fixtures coming up. Especially if Rich and Allan are out.

                          Well no one is really essential. U can still do well getting other players. But i don't see anyone else at his price point doing as well as him.

                          1. Salarrivederci

                            Because he is THE one atm. But with/if Rich and Allan out he will have a much harder time. Combine that with BHA and LIV up next, and not owning him is not scaring me as much as not owning Ings as an example.

                              U can have both though. They're not that expensive :p i understood ur point that u think he might not do well next 2 fixtures but i think otherwise. It's just our opinions anyways. We won't know till it happens. Good luck to you my friend!

                  Yeah but long term, two of their best players out is gotta hurt them

                  Wood to DCL for -4? Or wait until next gameweek and do it for free?

                    He'll be 7.6 or 7.7 next week. Will u be able to afford him?

                      Nope. Hate taking hits but could possibly justify this one.
                      Can afford one more 0.1 rise, so basically after tonight

                        Who have looked leaky as hell. DCL will probably score against them.

                          I think both Jimínez (FUL - lee) and Ings (WBA - che) looks better than DCL (BHA - LIV) if Richarlison and Allan are out.

                            Already have Ings and Jimi

                              Alright. Well if you don't have DCL and Rich and Allan are out the next couple of GWs, then I think you should stay away. I will.

                              But DCL > Wood at any day. I'm playing 3-5-2 atm.

                              Maupay has better fixtures than DCL aswell.

                    Granted DCL is likely to get more goals with the best Everton team around him, but form wise is there a better forward from open play FPL wise at the moment? Does he get a sniff of pens with Rich out or does Rod pick them up?

                    You are basically me but I have Martial over Ings

                    Just Son out - Mahrez I’m tempered by

                    Does Son > Klich / Brewster > DCL work?

                      Hi mate... yes it does... I have the exact funds to do

                      Son Brewster >> Foden DCL (-4)

                      Worth it?

                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 5 hours ago

                  Will Mahrez and Foden start this weekend?!

                  1. Zim0
                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 5 hours ago

                    Don't think mahrez starts simply because he's human and it'd be crazy to start 4th match in a row. Foden more likely to start after being rested today

                    1. The Tinkerman
                      • 5 Years
                      2 months, 4 hours ago

                      Yeah it’s a shame Mahrez played the full 90, he would be a decent son replacement otherwise

                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 4 hours ago

                    I think Foden will

                  Son, Richarlison and Podence all injured and no FTs, should I WC this now? Was tempted before Rich injury:

                  McCarthy, Nyland
                  TAA, Justin, James, Taylor, Mitchell
                  Son, Salah, KDB, Podence, Biss
                  Richarlison, Jiminez, Mitro

                    I wouldn’t myself. Wait for news

                    1. The Tinkerman

                      2 months, 4 hours ago

                      Yh, probably wise. My best case scenario is -4 hit to replace son, and start Taylor knowing that I have no bench, at least I can then hold WC over IB with transfer window closed.

                        Bissouma should get you 2 points vs eve worst case scenario. Better than nothing!

                  Is Werner doubt for weekend?

                  Maybe I wilö just move him to Jimmy or DCL anyway but two fts could have been gold for IB.

                      I like Barnes

                      Mou said there's a small chance he might even play v Man u.

                      I’m going Barnes, reckon he will do some damage

                    What needs changing here?...or should I save FT?

                      Really easy save

                      Davies is probably on borrowed time. Front 3 all have decent games this week but probably want to think about it them after that

                      Werner to DCL or Jimmy

                    Mahrez / Salah / Bruno / Hendricks / Klich

                    Mitro / Jimmy / Ings

                    I desperately want to do Mitro to DCL on WC no money ITB - any ideas where to free up the £1.4M ?
