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.

      Your team is very good

      Buur ➡️ Killman maybe?

        Good idea, annoyingly I can’t do this as I’ve got triple Villa already 🙁

      4. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 12 hours ago

        If I do go Buur to Kilman then he will start ahead of Soucek

    4. Rains of Castamere

      Is double Everton attack still worth it? Your bench is poor but you need money from elsewhere to improve it. Maybe Hamez and Davis to Barkley and Bamford?

      Buur to Kilman is possible but Saiss and Marcal might squeeze Kilman out

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 12 hours ago

        I fancy their chances in next two games (New A and United at H - often a great fixture for Everton)

    5. IRBOX ⚽

      TAA, Bruno > Chilwell KDB but I am very reluctant to lose TAA. Bruno is rubbish

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        Bruno isn't rubbish. Claims like that kind of devalue any other comments.

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years
          27 days, 12 hours ago

          I respectfully disagree. He is way overpriced for a diving pen merchant in a lacklustre attack

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        Thanks all, Buur to Kilman is my initial feeling.

        Irbox I know you’re not a fan of the penalty merchant lol, but want to keep Bruno this week at least I feel.
        Thanks though

            27 days, 13 hours ago

            If that happens maybe but moyes formation is nearly always 5 at back with masuaku and cresswell on left and coufal and right

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        If VVD is out for the whole season 10-12.

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          27 days, 13 hours ago

          That greatly reduces Robbo's appeal then, especially when I see Chillwell doing the same for 1.3M less. Were lucky not to concede more against Sheff Utd.

          1. Karan14

      Thoughts?

      1. El Fenomeno R9
        • 5 Years

        Think B,Kilman + Mitchell will be too much

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 12 hours ago

          It's a tough one ignoring Kane. If even one of Mitchell or Kilman can keep their spot for the next 3 games it works as I'll mostly be starting Chilwell, Saiss & Lamptey.

          1. El Fenomeno R9
            • 5 Years
            27 days, 12 hours ago

            Yes hard to go without,had him last 2 GWs and still lose points without (C).
            Not sure,maybe go for it now and shave 0.5 after to upgrade defender

    • Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Bruno worth the 1.0 extra over Rashford right?

      1. SmasherLagru
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        Just for pens yes

      2. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        I would think so. Rashford will have to play on the wing once Martial is back and Cavani starts getting more mins.

    • Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      Masuaku or Coufal?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        Coufal more nailed

      2. SmasherLagru

        Masuku oop

        1. Pegboy
          • 10 Years

          They're both playing wing-back aren't they?

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year

          and so is Coufal...

      Pumped all money in mids and forwards but now tinkering with this,
      who would you go for long term?

      A) Lamptey + Dallas + Bruno

      B) TAA + Robbo + Soucek

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year

        TAA, Soucek and someone other than Robbo. Don’t think the double up is worth it with VVD out

        1. Boly Would
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 13 hours ago

          Agree re the double up.
          Robbo, Chilwell, Foden?

      Experimenting with a GW9 WC... think going with 5 defenders below 4.7 is the way I'm going to go. Can't find any value in 5.0+ defenders maybe apart from Dias from City.

      1. Pegboy
        • 10 Years
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        Chilwell is the only £5m+ defender I want medium term.

    • Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 13 hours ago

      The GW10 fixture swing for City comes with the chance of KDB and at least one striker being fully fit

      As well as the Laporte + Dias pairing

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        That’s what the better managers have saved WC for

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          27 days, 12 hours ago

          Ha.

          As if saving your wildcard is objectively better no matter your GW1 side

          1. IRBOX ⚽
            • 3 Years
            27 days, 12 hours ago

            Spunked yours I take it? I chose GW9-10 pre season as the ideal time to deploy WC. City and United fixtures swing massively, both of whom will have a DGW. Spurs and Everton turn a bit nasty around this time too. West Ham become the enablers

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 13 hours ago

        Won't be touching City strikers

      3. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 12 hours ago

        Seems like both Aguero & Jesus will be fit by then.

      4. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        27 days, 12 hours ago

        Definitely want #10 KDB in my team for those games, permacap material. Triple City attack could pay dividends though the underlying numbers need to improve sooner rather than later.

        Might upgrade Foden to him for GW10. Cap most weeks

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          27 days, 12 hours ago

          I feel like Foden can come up with major hauls in those games just by being on the pitch in the 4-0s, 5-0s etc. I'll be keeping.

          1. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

            Yeah, but I don't like his rotation risk when all attackers are fit. Pep insists on seeing him as a winger, which puts him in competition with Mahrez when everybody else is fit... So I don't think I can cap Foden regularly in a 12 GW period of good fixtures

            Hence the Sterling preference. I got Foden for GW6 because I wasn't planning to cap a City player before GW10, and he's one of the best at his price point

            Might sell someone else instead: Salah, Bruno, Grealish, James. We'll see 🙂

              Well yeah, I doubt many will be captaining Phil Foden! Just that at 6.5 I like him a lot for the reason I mentioned. I get why you'd want the KDB/Sterling (C) opportunity, major hauls to be gained there for sure.

                I'd like Foden but i don't want to get rid of any of son, grealish, Rodriguez, bruno. Plus I'll be using 5th mid slot from GW10 for rotating Mane/Sterling for captaincy (maybe salah/kdb. Depends who's on form)

                  Yup! Exactly that

                  Foden is the least nailed in a 5 man midfield of trustworthy options, so he's the fall guy

                  1. Zim0
                    • 2 Years
                    27 days, 12 hours ago

                    Yeah it's unfortunate. I'd take him if there was a 6th mid option

                  And i wanted to do maupay to Antonio but someone said he's injured so im confused who to get for maupay next gw

        Keeping, KDB's return and him at ST could help. Will probably keep for the GW10 run at this point, don't see the point in removing him before that when the likes of Fulham and West Brom are waiting. Surely City are too good to struggle much longer?

          I don’t have Kane and Kane’s next two definitely look better than Sterling’s next two. But it’ll cost me up to a -8 which is putting me off

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            27 days, 12 hours ago

            Yeah, my personal opinion is the train is coming to an end for double Spurs attack. Have Kane only and sticking the (C) on him for the next two, then he's expendable. Looking for the next bandwagons in Manchester assets.

        Don't have a liv mid so considering losing him for one of Salah/Mane.
        If I had them, I don't think I would move him out

        1. COK3Y5MURF
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I do and I have Son, but no Kane

      I'm a bit out of the loop atm. What's the deal with Kilman? I'm assuming Wolves are soon going to revert back to Boly+Coady+Saiss at the back, right?

      1. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        We don’t know for sure unfortunately.

      2. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 12 hours ago

        Nothing is clear for now

        Saiss has been a utility player for a while (DM, CB, now LWB), so he might be the one to drop out, with the praise Nuno heaps on Kilman in his more natural role

        Or Kilman could just be a stopgap and Saiss is still preferred at LCB. GW7 should help clear it up if Marcal starts

    • waltzingmatildas

      Still don't have Salah/Mane.
      Sterling - Salah/Mane for -4?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…

        You know what will happen if you do...

        I'd rather a Liv option over Raheem though.

          27 days, 12 hours ago

          Yeah exactly. But when I think about my enjoyment of the game - I'd much rather have Mane over Sterling!

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…

      Coming off the back of my worst gameweek rank ever (6.7 million), 29 points, any thoughts on what to do with this team?

        I have about 75% of that - week was going ok till about 15 minutes before the end.

        Trent to Robbo if you can't think of anything.

      Following plan make sense?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…

          I'd go for ANtonio now - if fit - he is a machine

        2. Zim0

          Dallas or Mitchell to Kilman maybe?

                    27 days, 12 hours ago

                    This is what I'm thinking. Doubling up with Foden and then maybe adding Dias to defense. Won't be doing that move until GW9 Kane/Havertz to Antonio/KDB

                    1. Flair
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      27 days, 11 hours ago

                      Agreed, though Dias does restrict triple City attack - which may not be a problem for some.

                Sooo.. Aguero punt didnt go well..

                Who to get in? Kane not an option, so looking at Vardy or Werner?

                Other forwards are Wilson and DCL...

                Another option is to do Aguero+Grealish to Antonio+KdB or Bruno

                1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                  • 3 Years

                      I kinda' guessed, but still probably worth it.
                      I'd rather Kun to Antonio than Vardy or werner anyway and then all that cash ITB won't be getting any points either.

                  I'm kind of the same. Seeing it as an opportunity to fix a dodgy pick in defence (Dallas) where normally I wouldn't want to 'waste' a transfer
