Tips

The Complete Guide to Scout’s tips and advice for FPL Gameweek 6

Welcome to the Fantasy Football Scout Guide to Gameweek 6. It’s the first Friday deadline of the season – you have until 18:30 BST to ready the troops!

Who to captain?

This week Jan Sienkiewicz, our sage of the armband, recommends Sadio Mané (£11.9m), Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) and Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) in his Captain Sensible article. Risk-taking often factors into our decision-making process, and in terms of popularity Salah is the safest pick:

“Backed by over 66% of our voters combined, Salah and Kane seem to be the safe choices for Gameweek 6, the heavily-backed Egyptian the safest of the two.”

– Jan

In the latest edition of The Review, BigManBakar also tips Salah ahead of an enticing encounter against Sheffield United:

He’s on penalties playing for a team that has the best xG this season. According to the bookies, Salah has the best odds of scoring a goal and Liverpool are the most likely team this Gameweek to score 2.5+ goals. No player in the league has recorded more shots in the box this season.

– BigManBakar

Meanwhile David, who returned to the Captain Video after successfully transferring out a wisdom tooth last week, brought more good news for those considering a Liverpool player. Pointing out the impact the now-departed Dean Henderson (£5.4m) had on the Blades’ defence, he noted:

Sheffield United last season, for all the clean sheets they kept, I think a lot of people … would have assumed their xGC (expected goals conceded) was often quite good, but actually it really wasn’t. They would give up lots of Big Chances, but Dean Henderson had the second-best xG Prevented in the whole division last year, i.e. he was making incredible saves to keep Sheffield United in games.

– David

And if you prefer a differential option – a tactic last week’s Meet the Manager guest Graeme Sumner advocates – Neale was on hand with a tasty stat in his Big Numbers piece.

79.4 minutes per expected goal involvement (xGI) recorded by Sadio Mane, the best figure in the division from any player who has started at least one Premier League match this season.

– Neale

At under 10 per cent ownership, the Senegalese could be the better option for those willing to move away from Salah.

High opportunity cost

With so many players performing well this year it’s impossible to have them all. One strategy is to switch between the premium assets for their best fixtures, to give yourself the best captain candidates. 

But, as Greyhead has found out this season, you will have to accept the high opportunity cost.

The Community scribe sold Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) before his unexpected Gameweek 3 hat-trick away to Manchester City, he then ditched a potentially-injured Son Heung-min (£9.4m) ahead of his brace in Gameweek 4, and even his Gameweek 5 transfer-out Che Adams (£5.8m) returned 11 points after leaving his team.

The topic was raised on this week’s Scoutcast, with all three of Joe, Az, and Lee holding differing opinions on how to deal with the season. Az in particular was against switching out expensive players:

I think you can build a team with these premiums and you don’t need to worry about switching them out every week to try and catch different ones, because we’ve seen how much that can hurt people.

– Az

Instead, Az prefers to identify blocks of fixtures rather than transferring out a player because he blanked. 

Pro Pundit Simon March offered a different perspective on opportunity cost when discussing loss aversion, a cognitive bias that describes our tendency to fear losses more than we value gains.

Arguably the number one source of anxiety among Fantasy managers comes from transferring a player out who you suspect might suddenly start scoring, something that always seems to happen.

– Simon

Citing Timo Werner’s (£9.3m) haul against Southampton’s high-line defence, Simon explained that “one of the key skill elements of FPL is identifying the contextual factors that influence whether a player will score or not.

Essentially, judge the decision not the outcome. Simon concluded:

Most importantly, although it might feel like it, a player did not start scoring because you transferred them out. That kind of ‘magical thinking’ can quickly sabotage a Fantasy manager’s season as it removes logic and objectivity and puts events firmly into the hands of chance.

– Simon

And fellow Pro Pundit Lateriser doesn’t expect the rollercoaster of a season to stop any time soon.

This season, variance is a lot higher than usual and I expect that trend to continue. Be prepared for it and remember that this is only a game, one which involves a fair amount of luck and unpredictability as well.

– Lateriser

Value Villains 

Several contributors have noted the value on offer in Aston Villa’s ranks, who have surprised us all with their excellent start.

Now is a good time to invest in [Villa] from an attacking standpoint. When it comes to their attackers, I get the feeling that you will get what you pay for. Jack Grealish (£7.2m), Ross Barkley (£6.0m) and Ollie Watkins (£6.0m) are all correctly priced in my opinion and could be good stick-and-forget options for a while.

– Lateriser

In his Scout Notes from Gameweek 5, David Wardale, the author of Wasting Your Wildcard, revealed that Grealish was the most advanced Aston Villa player against Leicester City. While Az also recommends the Villa talisman:

Looking at the numbers, Grealish seems the stand-out option. Turning attention to Mark’s “Top Penalty Box Dweller” table in the Premium Members Area also shows that no player in the league can better the number of touches that Grealish has had in the opposition box (38) over the last four Gameweeks.

– Az

Referring once more to Neale’s stat-dive article, we find that Dean Smith’s men could be set for more immediate returns:

2.8 direct attacks per game recorded by Aston Villa this season, the highest number in the Premier League. Leeds United, Villa’s opponents on Friday, have had the most direct attacks against per game so far this term (4.0). A direct attack is one that starts just inside a team’s own half, has at least 50% of movement towards the opposition goal and ends with a shot or touch in the opponent’s box. Aston Villa ranked 16th for this statistic last season (1.4).

– Neale

A change in attacking style this season that looks set to reap rewards again in Gameweek 5.

Are Premium Defenders Worth the Money?

– the black circles represent the defenders priced £5.5m and over

Lateriser is considering selling Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m), Magnus Carlsen has sold Trent Alexander-Arnold, and BigManBakar’s research finds that “Andrew Robertson (£7.1m) is beating Trent in almost every single underlying stat that matters – not only this season but post restart”.

The graphic above is taken from FPL Ted’s video analysing premium defenders. Alexander-Arnold stands out with nine shots and nine chances created, which would suggest attacking returns are imminent. But perhaps the numbers aren’t as impressive as they first appear:

Alexander-Arnold seems to have monopolised direct free-kicks, which may explain why all nine of goal attempts have been small chances.

– FPL Ted

Neale, too, paints a less-than-ideal picture of the Liverpool full-back:

50 minutes per chance created by Trent Alexander-Arnold this season, still a very reasonable figure but down on last season’s average of 37. His average number of crosses per match has dropped from 10.1 to 7.4, in no small part thanks to his rate of corner-kicks dipping (4.3 to 2.6); Robertson, indeed, has delivered more of those than the Liverpool right-back in 2020/21.

– Neale

Will he be making way in your team this week?

Finally, before confirming your starting line-up, don’t forget to check the latest Team News and Predicted Line-ups. In case you missed it, James Rodriguez (£8.0m) may make a miraculous recovery for Sunday’s game!

Community latest

Earlier today, the Best of the Community feature included a tactical analysis from Kroos Kontrol, a ‘keeper evaluation from El Estadístico, and Jaydutt’s list of potential transfer traps ahead of the weekend’s fixtures.

And finally, for those interested in the Head-to-Head Leagues, the main page can be linked to here. The fixtures for Gameweek 6 can be found below:

Use the drop-down menus to show your league and division. To find out which league and division you are in, follow the instructions on the main Head-to-Head page.

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.”

      I'm expecting an open game and a goalfest. Which probably means 0-0 or the dreaded 1-1 with low ownership players scoring.

        no team to score 3 goals is unusual these days

        1. FPL_trail_runner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 22 hours ago

          Yes , i think it regresses this weekend

          All teams are over-performing their xG pretty much.

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years

            XG is BS then

              Its the best longterm predictive data

              Always correlates very well longterm with results

              Players in the short term can overachieve

              It hapended last year with Pukki

      2. Bagheri Arce
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 hours ago

        Not this anyway 😉 (no offence)

        Surely one of the teams scores 3 goals this week. Scores have been crazy so far this season

      No players tonight, I guess I want both teams to concede and irrelvants to score. Mings goal, and some Leeds guy to score. And give out plenty of yellows in the process

      1. FPL_trail_runner

        Mings has decent ownership

        Especially those doing well.

      First time this season I've made a transfer decision based on fear and have some regret. Took a hit to bring in Kane for Jimenez. Just feels like something that could easily backfire. My main concern was that if Kane does do well again I'd probably have to make an early transfer to then get him in.

      1. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 22 hours ago

        Long term it’s a good decision.

      2. FPL_trail_runner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 22 hours ago

        He will do well

        But its ok to go without also. I basically have Sterling over Kane

        We cant have them all.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Yes could easily backfire.

      Thinking about 2021 squad. With VDV out surely a price drop is imminent so he will be 5.5m or so. is he a must then? so double up in defense or ?

          Would you buy him at 5.5m? Potential season keeper at that price?

        Why would his price drop because he is injured? He will be £6.0m at lowest.

          KDB price dropped significantly. He is 11.5 now and after that injury season he was 9.5 or 9?

            Was he 11.5 before the injury season?

            Thinking now about what can happen half of a year ahead has nothing to do with "long term" thinking as far as you cannot impact it. Just a waste of time.

        5.5m is a bargain for Van der Vaart. Who would he play for though, Spurs again?

              I see these kind of moments as a win win . if your team wins you are happy if your fpl assets deliver and your team loses again it is a win. enjoy the game

            So you'll be wanting a 4-3 to Leeds with your attackers scoring and Martinez (i presume) to save a penalty? 🙂

                  Jim captain is basic fpl error

                    1 month, 22 hours ago

                    What's worse is it's the 2nd time I've captained him this season (got 2 points the first time).

                    The reason is I've already tilted as no one in my cash mini league has Jimi above me and all have Salah and Kane (who were my other 2 candidates).

                  People forgetting about the deadline, why do you leave transfers until the last 30 minutes anyway?

                      You've made the game a lil part of your life by playing. If u can't take out 5-10 minutes at an earlier time for this then you have no right to complain about missing deadline. If it happens once its fine even twice ill say okay it happens but when its the 6th gameweek it shouldn't be happening

                      People who say they have a life is so lame. As if everyone else doesn't.

                          It's a good reason though!

                            it is a good reason, but what I don't understand is when those people then come on here and moan about it.

                  Why was the deadline not 1 hour before the game like usual? Is this going to be a regular occurence this season? I specifically looked at the kick off time for Villa vs Leeds tonight and gave myself 30 minutes to transfer someone in for Greenwood 😀

                      Spent the day negotiating with my housemate to try and make him allow me to be able to use the living room and all the kitchenware, etc.

                      KDB will probably feature, is Martial injured? IDK even
                      Why do you want Bale? Ugly moves anyway

                        Martial suspended. Last week I was considering Kane and Son for free. This week I was considering something else because I miss out last week!

                      KDB may outscore both Aguero and Bale. Don't feel too bad

                        Keeping KDB might be a master stroke and I can guarantee first on your bench is going to haul and replace Martial.

                              Mitchell, Brewster, Martial.

                              I also have Greenwood in the XI :/

                        Wow, first time in over 3 seasons I've forgotten about the deadline transfer. I had it in my mind it was an hour before kick-off. This truly will not be my season. Was going to do Barnes to Mane. This totally sucks! Can't remember who I left the captaincy on. The way I set up the bus team on Saturday is as it is.

                            Left Ayling on the bench and sold Bamford. Fully expecting a villa win here.

                              Villa are overperforming their underlying data. Most overpeforming team in the league this year for goals scored and points achieved
