Scout Network

The latest news and updates from the Scout Network

This week has been another busy one for the Scout Network and this regular round-up recaps what its members have been producing.


We are thrilled to announce that FPL Gameweek has joined the Scout Network this week. FPL Gameweek has been one of the most exciting additions to the FPL community, alongside fellow Scout Network member Live FPL, as it gives managers access to live in-play data updates.

FPL Gameweek allows Fantasy managers to track their points, their rivals’ points and managers’ live ranks during each Gameweek.

Using your FPL team ID or your team name to show your points, substitutions and rank in real-time, it negates the need to wait for an official game update.

FPL Gameweek is a great tool for assessing the impact of the decisions you have made and it enables you to see the weaknesses in your FPL team that you may need to rectify ahead of the next Gameweek deadline.

The FFS International branch of the Scout Network has also had a busy seven days.

This week saw the launch of commenting on the Arabic language part of the website and we are working on launching the Arabic language community articles to allow further growth of that initiative.

We have also now set up the FFS International page on our site.

You can read more about FPL Greece in the FFS International article.

The Scout Academy also had a busy month in September and you can read all about what they have been doing here.

If you would like to be part of the Scout Network or the Scout Academy, you can contact us here.

FPL Family

Alongside FPL Family’s normal Sunday evening live stream, last week Lee appeared on the Official FPL Podcast talking about all things Gameweek 4.

Sam also wrote her most recent Pro Pundit article on the importance of underlying stats and the eye test in deciding on what to do with your FPL players. 

FPL Nymfria

Nymfria released her lasted video on her YouTube channel reviewing her Wildcard and also previewing Gameweek 4.

She also recorded her Fantasy Football Scout-sponsored Dream Team Stream, where the community helped to pick the team that they thought would make the FPL Dream Team for the coming Gameweek.

El Statto

This week, El Statto published two articles.

The first looked at the fallout of playing a Wildcard in Gameweek 3 when FPL returns were generally low and how it effected forward planning, while the second piece looked at hauls versus returns and who is best placed to return big.

FPL Poker Player

One of the newer members of the Scout Network, FPL Poker Player this week published his weekly FPL Poker Tables blog. The tables contain the usual mix of reviewing and contextualising the performance of his spreadsheet’s predictions from the previous Gameweek, and highlighting key points of interest regarding the upcoming Gameweek’s scoreline predictions, clean sheet probabilities, expected goals and player points.

FPL Poker Player also made his blog public for the first time. This is the first instance in which the FPL Poker Player spreadsheets are available for purchase, and season-long subscriptions have also been made available. 

The betting-arm spin-off account from FPL Poker Player identified five bets that met the twin criteria of being consistent with his spreadsheet’s predictions and representing value at the current odds available.

We Are Brighton

The folks at We Are Brighton published their Gameweek 4 preview article (courtest of Fantasy Football Scout!), looking at the best Brighton assets for the week as well as a short review of the other FPL options and go-to captaincy options.

Spotlight: FPL Take the Hit

FPL Take the Hit is the culmination of two Australian brothers’ love of both the beautiful game and the Premier League.

Mick and Joff go live every Thursday evening at 8.30pm (Melbourne time)/11.30am (London time) on Youtube, with the subsequent replay and audio podcast version also available.

The FPL Take the Hit boys lay out their hilarious take on the FPL world with a dose of brotherly love, wisdom and positivity that will hopefully elevate managers to new levels.

With 14 years of experience under their belts and eight top 15k finishes, Mick and Joff love playing the game in their own style, taking hits and enjoying the ride, no matter whether a red or green arrow falls their way.

The one key principle that the boys share is a fearless attitude to playing FPL.

“Coming together once a week to talk FPL is what we do, we have done it for years now, so why not record it? I mean, we know what we are talking about, we are pretty funny fellows, I’m sure other managers will love listening to us ramble on, don’t you?”

“Yeah alright, let’s do this.”

This fateful conversation between the brothers bore the fruit of their first podcast over two seasons ago. That podcast has blossomed into a fully-fledged YouTube channel with interactive streams every week.

Mick runs the Twitter account while Joff runs the Instagram page.

FPL Take the Hit also have their own Patreon account.

This week. FPL Take the Hit have introduced a brand new live stream format, with interactive timed intervals for those managers that would like to skip to their favourite parts.  

They have included all-new graphics and videos to make their live streams an even nicer experience for their viewers, by using a green screen to add to the quality of the content they produce.

As FPL Take the Hit always say: remember to stay positive, accept the reds and embrace those green arrows!

    Any chance Button could be picked in goal ahead of Johnstone in WBA leaky defence? (May be useful bench fodder on wild card?)

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Button really not very good so unlikely.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Reminds me of the guy who asked play Ryan or Button vs Man City away....

      Can see you are scrimping of late 😆

      No 4.0 GKs likely. If McCarthy's form continued to be poor after GW2, Forster may have been worth a shout - but two CSs in a row now.

      Brewster is the cheap forward to have, if you need one.

      Mitchell still the best cheap DEF. Fergusson an option once he's fit, but that could be ages. Braithwaite (won't play) is 3.9m. Kilman/Dunne/Johnson will only get game time through injuries to others.

      1. Pointless

        • 4 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Ha! Thanks Hazz. If you want to help I’ve set up a JustGiving page titled Help Pointless Raise £0.1m To Make His Dream Wildcard Team!

    4. Jainica

      Only if Johnstone is injured

  2. JURGENAUT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Need transfer advice. 1FT.

    Current team:

    McCarthy
    Robbo - Saiss - Justin
    Salah - KDB - Zaha - Barnes
    Jimenez - Ings - DCL

    Bench: Forster - Lamptey - Mitchell - Stephens

    0.1 ITB.

    Should I save my transfer for now or is there an obvious move?

    My reasonings for currently keeping the two players which probably most people will advocate to get rid off:

    - Zaha - He's got a strong run of fixtures coming up, potentially penalties, playing OOP up front.
    - Barnes - Marginally offside goal, very direct player, takes a lot of shots.

    Thanks all! 🙂

    1. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Yeah keep Barnes deffo, Zaha will crash and burn eventually.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Lacking Spurs, but you know that, so hold

      1. JURGENAUT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Thanks both. Yeah Zaha is a very streaky player, I'm just hoping in the midst of this chaotic season that he grabs a few goals over the next few fixtures and then inevitably he'll be replaced soon. Just need something whilst I have him. And yeah, as for the Spurs players most notably Kane and Son, they are the obvious omissions but I'd have to break the balance of my team to accommodate them therefore, for now, I'm just thinking of holding and see where I'm at closer to the deadline. Cheers

        1. Hint
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Palace fixtures are fantastic. I almost included Zaha in my WC but it didn't quite fit in my best draft. Went for Sakho at the back instead. Def wouldn't be taking Zaha out if I had him though.

    3. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      KDB > James Rod
      Ings > Kane.

    Anyone know if FPL Black Box will be streaming this eve?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Hope so. Really enjoying it.

      1. DantheManinaPan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        It's so good I've stopped listening to other podcasts! Sorry Joe

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I'm off Scoutcast too.
          FPL Wire pretty good (hack: can comfortably watch at 1.25 playback).

          1. M00N
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Joe's turned into Captain Hindsight

        2. Warbling Wendy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          the original podcast, which was a huge part of this site, was mark and granville - it was the dynamic between them that made it. Listening to Joe and others warble on is not the same, despite their best efforts.

      2. All about the galacticos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        yeah me too! like the dynamic between mark and az

  4. AnfieldLad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    McCarthy
    TAA Robbo Semedo Shaw Ferguson
    Salah KDB Podence Soucek Bisoumma
    Werner DCL Mitrovic

    I know I should probably Wildcard but I’d rather wait as it’s just been so crazy so far. Mitro fixtures look okay and I’d like to keep Werner for Southampton

    So looking at
    A) TAA + Podence -> Ayling/ Lamptey + Son (-4)
    B) Shaw -> Chilwell

    Thoughts?

    1. Jimjam
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      A with Lamptey

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      B for me. Obvious upgarde.

    3. Gentle_Turks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Keep TAA

    4. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      B

    5. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Werner. Mitro. Soucek. Shaw have to go imo

      1. AnfieldLad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Yeah ideally they wouldn’t be in my team but I don’t want to wildcard. Werner Mitro Soucek are worth hits to ditch so it’s Shaw -> Chilwell or take a hit to fit a spurs player in to captain

  5. dshv
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    ADVISE!

    How it looks this g2g after transfers (-4)
    Or start wc ?

    Mccarthy
    Taa mitchel taylor davies justin
    Salah son kdb bruno soucek
    Watkins Dcl davis

    Also can you give me some plans about davies and soucek

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Soucek a definite keep, defence needs work (Zouma for Davies?).

      It'll do for now.

  6. Jimjam
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Wilson or Antonio as 3rd striker?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Antonio

    2. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Antonio for me too. I wouldnt be put off by his fixtures. Everything at WHU seems to end up at him.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Antonio

  7. Lindelol
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    This season of is so good for some and so bad for others because there has already been big hauls for some of the players. If you own them you are off to a flier. Rest of the people might be chasing you for the whole of season.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Just hitting the captain makes such a difference - only 1/4 so far for me.

      1. Lindelol
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Captaincy has always been the same. 2/4 for me

  8. Jainica
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Which do you think will be the best FPL midfield asset over the season, Pulisic or Havertz?

    1. JURGENAUT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 20 days ago

      I think Pulisic just because he's more settled in than Kai and could pick up from where he left off.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      If Puli's injuries/Frank's alternative facts could be predicted then him.
      Kai still a a wait and see.

    3. Jainica
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Thanks folks

    4. M00N
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Might as well go with Havertz then make the switch when Pulisic is up and running.

    5. Treadstone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Havertz as Pulisics muscle injuries will probably plague him throughout the season.

  9. Good Times
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Guaita
    Digne Saiss chilwell digne
    Kdb Salah grealish james
    Kane dcl
    Steer Brewster Lamptey anguissa

    Looking to swap digne to robbo 1 mil itb
    What say thou?

    1. JURGENAUT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 20 days ago

      You got Digne in there twice.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Like Djemba-Djemba - so good they named him twice.

      2. Good Times
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Damn was sleepy haha, there dunne instead of the other digne

    2. polis
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Great if you can shift one of your Digne's to Robbo. I'd go for it.

  10. Tosa86
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Actual FPL team:

    Martinez - Ryan
    Mitchell - Saiss - TAA - Digne - Castagne
    KDB - J.Rodz - Zaha - Alzate - Son
    DCL - Jimmy - MItrovic

    ItB: 1.9
    FT: 2

    Any suggestion to upgrade performance of my team?
    Jimmy and mitrovic stay (price drop) or leave?

    1) jimmy+mitrovic+digne --> vardy+wilson+chilwell(-4)?
    or split and do only 2 moves?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Hmmm.
      Keep Jimmy and lose Mitro.
      Think Zaha might drop off now he didn't get a move - he has done it before.

      1. Tosa86
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        mitro+zaha?for wilson and?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Greal and Antonio/Maupay?
          Just Mitro part and save FT?

          1. Tosa86
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            keep digne?

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      I would find a way to get Salah in

    3. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      no salah no go

  11. Paulybaby123
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Benching DCL not an option or am I losing it?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Not an option

      2. Jainica
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Hes a never bench never captain for me.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          My Mrs captained him and beat all three of my options

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            *for the record I don’t have three teams, just the three players I was considering

            1. Plonatron
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 20 days ago

              I don't think there was any need for clarification 😀

      3. polis
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        It's an option if you click a couple of times but does indeed mean you're losing it.

      4. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Don't.
        DCL on fire and Liv just conceded 7 (seven).

      5. JURGENAUT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 20 days ago

        No way can someone bench DCL. Don't do it, he's literally the most inform player in the PL alongside Kane and Son. DCL can score against anyone, even Liverpool.

        1. Paulybaby123
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Cheers. Yeah I'm seeing sense cheers! Could score a brace or more v Liverpool!

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 20 days ago

          You're losing it

        3. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Bench the leagues top scorer V a team that just conceded 7 goals.... losing it

      6. HaffNanner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        A. Pulisic and Kane

        B. KDB and Wilson

        1. Jainica
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          A for me

          But why Pulisic over Havertz for you?

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          A - don't fancy Wilson.

      7. Jacky boy
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Anyone knows about reguilon injury?
        Badly wanted him on WC

        1. Jainica
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I just took him out on my WC after the news, I think it's a wait and see, but early prognosis not great

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Nothing yet. I'm interested too. But will likely go with Chilwell.

          1. Jainica
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Why not both with Robbo or have you gone with Saiss?

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              This would be for my FanTeam. I'm looking for a sub 6m defender and was tossing up Chilwell or Reguilon but will likely join the masses and go Chilwell because the fixtures especially defensively favor Chelsea.

          2. Jacky boy
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Have chilwell as well.

          Latest reports are a wait and see, but doesn’t sound too hopeful..

      8. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Capt Sterling Salah or Son, all having a rest..

        Currently on Sterling (C)

        1. Jainica
          • 3 Years

          (K)ANE but Sterling from your options

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          KDB, Son, Mo for me. Son or Kev. (S)on at the moment.

              West Ham looking very decent, unlikely to provide as much space as Southampton or down to 10 chasing game United for Son to capitalise on.

              I'm on KDB currently, though not sure about it.

                Agree with this. Not sure Spurs will fancy the way West Ham setup (as in the 1-1 with Newcastle) and while Spurs will probably win it, not sure it will be a big scoreline. While I'll probably leave KDB out on the wildcard, I think he could score very well this week. Still think Kane & Son does better over the next few.

        On a WC and not taken any notice of the current template on here and anywhere else, but I've ended up with a pretty template team. Any ideas?

        McCarthy - 4m

        Digne - Chilwell - Reguilon - Dallas - 4m

        Salah - Son - Rodriguez - Havertz (Pulisic placeholder) - Stephens

        DCL - Antonio - Kane

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Template is good. Much too early for punting.

          1. M00N
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I think a couple of punts in a template team is the best strategy. Could say my defence is a little punt compared to most. Just the big holes that are a Man City mid and a Pool defender.

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Pretty big holes - if Kun back soon can do Harry to him.
              Kai and Digne would be wriggle room for me.

        2. Who are all Lukakus
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Digne to Robbo
          Regulon is not a safe pick, same with Havertz

            Has Davis a chance to take his spot?

              • 3 Years

              Davies just back-up/Europa League now surely.

        McCarthy
        Chilwell | Targett | C.Taylor
        Son | KDB | Salah | JRod
        Kane | DCL | Maupay

        Steer | Lewis | Bissouma | Mitchell

        Thoughts on this WC team, guys?

        1. M00N
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Think your defence is too weak.

          1. Lucky Z
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Whom you will add? Liverpool?

            1. M00N
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              I think there's better 4.5s but if your going without Liverpool you need to beef up your defence with at least another good attacking defender in my opinion.

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Burnley looking a mess, must be a couple of other options for cheaper defs.

          1. Lucky Z
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Ayling

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Anything ITB? Ayling and Lamptey over Taylor and Lewis doable? If not, Ayling and Webster or White?

        3. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years

          Doesn’t look right without a pool attacking Defender, and would much rather have that than Maupay

        4. Shineonme
          • 4 Years

          Defence isn't great.. Will hurt you in the long run.

        Anyone looking at Rodrigo? Leeds attack look like it could provide exceptional value and he looked very good when he came on against City. Presumably he is just working up minutes. Or is Bamford going to retain starting berth and be the go to cheap forward for Leeds?

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          He'll come in eventually, but when?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Soon presumably. He looked class. I'm obviously not going to spend a FT on him, and probably wouldn't bring in on WC just yet, but definitely have my eye on him.

      14. RohanVaswani
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        On a WC, Bamford or Wilson?

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Wilson anyday

        2. Fit_to_drop
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 20 days ago

          B

        3. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Loads of options in that bracket, at moment by preference would be Antonio or Maupay if you can stretch, though Rodrigo, Bamford, Watkins, and Mitro all in running as competition for Wilson as next best.

        4. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Neither, Wilson if have to.

            Rather have a Liv def than Vardy - but I'm not exactly pulling up any trees so what do I know?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          My striker value list is:

          DCL > Kane > Jimenez > Watkins > Ings > Maupay > Antonio

          Antonio will likely shoot right up once these bad fixtures are over. Anyone other than these guys is a no thanks from me until we see more/the fixtures/form change.

          1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Watkins ranking very highly, I'm not sure I've seen enough yet. Agree with others, though would probably push Antonio up a bit, in spite of fixtures.

          Antonio should be Jiminez. Pulisic is always an injury worry for me. Great player but is injury prone .

        Hi

        What do you think about this wildcard team:

        Martinez
        Chilwell Lamptey Ayling
        Sarah KDB Son Rodriguez
        DCL Kane Watkins

        Steer - Oriol Romeu, Mitchell, Kilman

        1. M00N
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Do you think Kane, Salah, and KDB is worth it for that defence and no bench?

          1. Szarleej
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I was thinking about that about billion times already. I want all of them but it limites defence and bench by a lot.

            Who would you drop? My preference would be to drop Kane.

            1. M00N
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              I'm considering dropping KDB as I don't really feel confident captaining him.

          Cant't see the value in Vardy when you have cheap in-form strikers like DCL, Wilson, Antonio, Bamford and Watkins around. Even Ings, Jimenez, Richarlison are better value IMO. And I'm not a fan of the Chilwell pick, but I guess he's firmly on the bandwagon. I fear Mitchell will lose his place fairly soon, so wouldn't include him on a WC.
          Rest of the team looks great!

              On a WC myself, and I think it's important to think long term aswell as getting the in-form players. So I can't really see myself going without TAA/Robertson and KDB/Sterling.

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…

            If I decide I'm willing to TC a City player, they'll likely have a DGW19 of CRY and AVL, both at home (AVL being the rescheduled GW1 fixture).

            Salah would be more guaranteed the 180 minutes though, so maybe him in a DGW.

              Those with Saiss, are you playing him vs Leeds? Surely Mitchell or Lamptey has higher chance of cs

              Please explain to me why Chilwell is in every WC team. Kneejerking after 18 points on his debut?
              Do you really trust that Chelsea defence to keep 12-15 clean sheets?
              He came from a pretty attacking(yet defensivly solid) Leicester team, and his best FPL season brought 118 points with 0 goals and 5 assist.
              3 goals, 3 assist last season in a team that came 5th. Is he suddenly turning in to Roberto Carlos after putting on a Chelsea shirt?

              1. Fit_to_drop
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 20 days ago

                Good post with good stats quoted. I think its a reaction to Robertson and TAA being priced so highly with Allison now out. Secondly, Clean sheets are now rarer than every before due to the home advantage being removed with no crowds. So if CS's arent as widespread it becomes a question of who can deliver attacking returns and for 5.5m he seems good value at that price level in a team that is more attacking than most.

                1. Dichio24
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  I can see that point, but will he be as attacking when James plays on the right? Surely Emerson, Alonso and Azpi will get some gametime on that left-hand side. Wouldn't cheaper attacking full backs like KWP, Lamptey, Ayling/Dallas, Masuaku be better value-picks?

                      That "underneath your team kit" must be a typo, it's above it. "View gameweek history"

                    I’m sure someone will answer better than me. I’m not sure how I did it tbh. I think it was the details in the top bar of the fantasy site when on gameweek history. There should be a number there? Then put that in your profile?

                I've got a better rank than you so do everything I say.

                Some of the best players at this game who have years of finishing in the top 1k are currently ranked 3-5m this season.

                Maupay the one to get from BRI. Unless you want two, which you don't.

                  I think Maupay over him. Put it this way, Antonio at 6.3 and Wilson at 6.4 will deliver a lot more points than Trossard at 6.
