How Scout Network managers are finding balance in midfield

Midfield is proving a difficult position to maintain for Fantasy Premier League managers this season, so we spoke to the Scout Network to see what they have to say.

There are certainly plenty of options to choose from, with Mohamed Salah (12.4m), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (11.7m), Bruno Fernandes (10.5m) and the Manchester City double of Kevin De Bruyne (11.5m) and Raheem Sterling (11.6m) each receiving plenty of attention in pre-season.

Since the start of the campaign, Son Heung-Min (9.5m), Wilfried Zaha (7.2m), Jack Grealish (£7.2m) and James Rodríguez (8.0m) have joined the conversation, but we would be lying if we said all of these options have been reliable from one week to the next.

The Scout Network shared how they are managing this problem, which premiums they are investing in and which midfielders they currently trust the most for FPL points.

Midfielders: Who to pick and how to spread the budget

Ted Talks FPL

Ted Talks FPL top five Midfielder graphic

FPL is a long-term prediction game. We should only worry about a player blanking when it’s over a sustained period, such as four to six Gameweeks, as this gives the player sufficient time to convert underlying statistics into goals and assists without battling the volatility of individual games.

Therefore, blanks for Salah, Fernandes and Sterling don’t overly concern me. They may have let their owners down in Gameweek 6 but they were either afforded or created clear cut chances. These opportunities are likely to be converted next time round.

In fact, one very effective way of picking players is to bring in those who have had the best underlying statistics, rather than looking at the most recent points tallies.

We want to predict what might happen in the future, not in the past, so picking the players who get in the best positions and show the most intent is a good start for predicting FPL points.

With this in mind, the graphic above shows the top five midfielders with the best statistics, along with their next six fixtures. Note that there are three premiums and two mid-priced players. Unless you are making sacrifices elsewhere in your team, it is unlikely that most if us can afford this midfield.

I would suggest going with two premiums and two mid-priced players, maybe with a budget enabler depending on your preferred formation.

It is worth noting that the players who occupy sixth through tenth on this list include Zaha, Leandro Trossard (£6.0m), Sadio Mané (£12.0m), De Bruyne and Sterling so there are plenty of options to choose from.

When determining whether we can trust a player to convert chances, it is worth considering the difficulty of his fixtures and team form. If he is playing against weaker opposition and the team is full of confidence, it is likely he will continue to have plenty of chances to score or assist.

FPL Greece

We believe two big hitters (since Son is considered one) is the minimum number of premium midfielders for a successful team, irrespective of structure. Then depending on the funds spent up front, it can go up to three.

Salah and Son are the only premium midfielders that have shown the consistency to be considered nailed in most of FPL teams, and Gameweeks like the most recent are not the ones to justify massive team ‘surgeries’.

Salah hit the post in a rare one-on-one miss, and Bruno was involved in a match so tight and conservative, that you cannot learn many long-term lessons from. Sterling also missed a one-on-one while his team is ravaged by injuries and is still looking to find some form.

Thus, in low scoring Gameweek like this one, it is a good time to sit back and analyse the bigger picture behind key underlying statistics, and run a new long-term plan without dwelling too much on the recent blanks. Banking a transfer will also give flexibility when a bandwagon or a new pattern is formed in the next Gameweek.

Mikkel Tokvam – Transfer Algorithm

The Transfer Algorithm – GW 7 – Top 15 Midfielders

The Transfer Algorithm is designed to solve problems exactly like this. The formula imports all relevant underlying data, analyses it, and fits it into a money limiting vector field to find the optimal combination of players to go ahead with.

As of Monday afternoon, the Transfer Algorithm rated Son and Salah as distinguished from the rest as the optimal players – as can be shown in the BCV (budget constrained value) sorting below.

A blank like Salah managed in Gameweek 6 has not worried the Algorithm at all. His underlying statistics for the Sheffield United match were amazing, it just wasn’t his day. After all, even the best players blank about half of the time anyway, and long-term data holds substantially more value than the short-term noise.


Below Son and Salah there are a wealth of decent midfield options to fill up with which hold about the same value, making it difficult to form a clear template midfield. Peeking at the forwards rankings, it seems budget also has to be allocated for Kane still – which mean Grealish, Phil Foden (6.6m), Ross Barkley (6.0m) and Zaha seem excellent fillers. From next week, Jarrod Bowen (6.3m) will say hello too.

Marcus Rashford playing for Manchester United

The movement of Aubameyang and Marcus Rashford (9.5m) in to the midfield category at the start of the season fundamentally changed the way that many FPL Managers looked at these slots.

During Project Restart it was all about De Bruyne, Salah/Mané, Bruno Fernandes and maybe an out there chance on Son however it seemed acceptable to fill the rest of the midfield slots with cheaper options.

Fast forward to the start of the 2020/21 season and suddenly we are trying to squeeze an extra premium midfielder in to our starting line-ups. As the first six Gameweeks have shown though, there are not as many set-and-forget options as we had hoped. Salah and Son have been the most consistent to return, although even they have had four Gameweeks between them where they haven’t returned.

For me, this season is all about staying loyal to the premium assets you choose and moving around with the cheaper options to ensure that you hit good fixture runs and purple patches as they arrive.

Tomas Soucek (£4.9m) has been unlucky so far this season and his expected goals (xG) data suggests a haul is incoming. With West Ham’s fixtures due to change for the better in Gameweek 9, he is both a helpful enabler as well as being a potential points gold mine if his team can keep up their form once the fixture shift happens.

Ted Talks FPL

After a successful 80-point Wildcard in Gameweek 5, Ted’s team is on the up – and so is the level of his content creating. Ted is posting charts, tables and animations three times each day on Twitter to support the FPL community in their decision-making process.

This week, Ted will be adding a Chance Diagram graphic, alongside another for high defensive lines. He is also now producing one weekly YouTube video and last week he joined the FPL Wildcats on their live stream Q&A.

FPL Family

This week Lee appeared on the Official FPL Podcast with James Richardson to discuss all things Gameweek 6. Both Lee and Sam had successful Gameweeks off the back of their Wildcards in Gameweek 5 but Gameweek 6 could not have been more different.

Their Sunday night live stream over on their YouTube channel provided some light hearted entertainment on the back of a tough weekend.

This week you can catch Sam on the Official FPL podcast as well as both halves of the FPLFamily on the FPL Show with Jules and James.

El Statto

El Statto had a quieter week this week but Academy member FPL Talking Points penned his second article in his The Overcoming FPL series, where he analyses how mental shortcuts and cognitive biases affect our FPL decisions, and what up-and-coming managers can do to change their behaviour.

Fantasy Chat

Last week Fantasy Chat launched their first videos to cover UEFA Champions League Fantasy. Karam was joined by Ebraheem who finished 900th overall last season to go through the groups team by team and look out at the best assets from each of groups – Groups 1-4 and Groups 5-8. There have been three videos are released so far.

Karam has also been busy creating more content for the Arabic language section of the Fantasy Football Scout website.

        I've been thinking this as I don't think Villa will be able to handle them attacking wise and could be similar to Leeds. It's a gamble which could pay off but I think just having him in your team is good enough and captaining one of the more popular options is probably better.

            Coufal, Targett, KWP in that order.

            I don't like Leeds fixtures and Kilman's spot is still shaky.

              Agree on Kilman.
              Coufal looking like a good 4.5 investment

                I haven't seen him play properly either. Masuaka also a decent option.

                I'm in a very similar position (I've got JRod for your Pulisic and Saiss instead of KWP). Keep Puli, I reckon - the upcoming fixtures look ok for them and I think he'll come good. I'm thinking about Maupay as well; not quite sure where to go to though. Bamford feels like chasing points. Antonio, maybe.

                      Saiss to chillwell
                      Jiminez to Kane
                      C.Taylor to Coufal
                      Were my 3 transfers this week
                      Taylor is gna drop value and woulda been priced out

                        Ouch. Taking out Jimi + Saiss before playing CRY for a -8 is likely to hurt you. I get the need for Kane, but I'd have lost Hamez first.

                        Good luck!

                        I didn’t want to be priced out or miss out on Kane/Chillwell vs Brighton and Burnley. Wolves don’t look too great and after Crystal Palace the fixtures are as difficult as it can be.

                          Fair enough. Your team looks good now.

                          In future, don't be too hung up on getting priced out, as you could always have gone for Balbuena/Kilman if necessary instead of Coufal.

                      Need to get rid of Mitrovic. Which of the below do you prefer, ideally until Jan?

                      A) Watkins (amazing fixtures)
                      B) Adams (more form)

                        Keep him unless you've got 2FT and nothing else to do.

                        I want to get rid guys, not asking if you think I should keep 🙂

                          In that case I prefer Bamford and Antonio to the listed players.

                          If you really want one of them, I'd go Watkins for the fixtures.

                        Neither, if I’m honest.

                        Like most above, if those are the only options I’d keep Mitrovic. At least he’s on pens.

                        So, since we all agree to keep as opposed to changing him for Watkins or Adams then you’re going to have to make the grossly underrated move if actually choosing for yourself.

                      Guaita
                      Targett- Lamptey - Robertson
                      Sterling - Foden - Salah - Podence
                      Jiménez - Kane - Watkins

                      Forster - James - Mitchell - Burke

                      £0.6M ITB 1FT

                      Best way to get Son in without losing Sterling, Salah or Kane? Only thing I can see is Foden > Son, Jimmy > 6.1M forward but don't think i'd want to do it this week.

                        I think I'd wait a week and then do Jimi + Podence > Son + Antonio (maybe downgrade James/Robertson if you don't have enough £)

                        get rid of robertson -> coufal

                      is he a rotation risk?

                      seems he'll play the EL match and davies will play brighton game

                      what do u think guys?

                        Looks like all Spurs defenders will be.

                        You need to decide whether you want to play Jose defensive roulette every week or just get someone else more nailed on.

                          no i don't want to play roulette 🙂

                          the season is very tough and i can't afford to take any risk now

                        B. Davies played because it was Burnley away and Mourinho wanted to shut up shop.

                          I don't think he's worth the cash long-term though

                            i'll sell him when the fixtures turn worse probably after WBA game gameweek 9

                            Probably 75% confident he'll start both. He'll have a three day break, as we don't play until Sunday evening.

                            stick with kane
                            stick with the player who has the form 🙂

                            son or kane

                        A & B both look good imo.

                          Agree. Both strong options. Marginally prefer A.

                            Reason being I don't think Brewster has got any value and Barkley has got great fixtures.

                      A, B or C guys?

                      TAA Robertson Semedo KWP (Lamptey)

                      Wood DCL Jimenez

                      A - Jimenez to Kane
                      B - Wood to Ings
                      C -Save??

                        Kane is essential but I wouldn’t be getting rid of Jimenez

                        So B

                      Can only get Kane by downgrading one of TAA, Pulisic, Barnes. Which to sell?

                        Depends on the rest of your team, but in isolation, probably Barnes.

                        Not seeing much love for Bamford despite him just scoring 3 great goals!...

                          Season keeper, Leeds will probably qualify for European competition and he's a focal point of their attack. Immense value, can't believe he's not in more sides.

                          I've brought him in this week.

                          He's playing well, even before Villa, nice price, but Villa defence thought it was Christmas being so generous. Would be a good pick in a Wildcard but if not who would you sell for him?

                            Guess it depends on your team set up also! I’ve currently gone for the 5 in midfield with Kane & DCL.

                            I’ve got the cash for Brewster > Bamford but would mean a benching headache every week!

                          What to do? Have two transfers and 0.0 ITB. Should I wait with transfers or go for it now?

                          Kane - DCL (Brewster)

                          Desperate for help after a poor gameweek.

                                Im not sure. Is there anybody worth changing just to have it done, or should i keep the team for another GW?
                                Considering Werner / Bamford for Kane/Brewster

                                  Definitely don't do that. Team overall is pretty good. I'd downgrade one of Bruno/Foden/Grealish at some point, and upgrade Brewster, but not obvious which one to lose.

                            Is now a good time to get off of wolves defence and onto Chelsea? They’ve got 3 great fixtures coming up

                            Thinking of a simple Semado > Zouma transfer but at the same time it seems a waste and I could just bank the FT?

                            I know it’s a bit much but would you stick to this plan?

                            GW 7 - Aguero ➡️ Adams/Bamford
                            GW 8- Maupay ➡️ Antonio
                            GW 9- Grealish ➡️ Bruno
                            GW 10 - Pulisic and Kane ➡️ Vardy and KDB/Sterling

                            Thanks all.

                              U know planned transfer barely works, this is 4 weeks long plan so hard to say,anyway if no pressing issues carry on, stick to your plan all transfer in player seems better long term.
