Scoutcast Episode 350 – Cheap strikers take centre stage in Halloween special

Joe and Az are joined by Karam to look ahead to Gameweek 7.

For the Scoutcast’s 350th episode, our trio get into the spirit of Halloween, with some frightening props and a scary set of sound effects.

The occasion seems timely after an abysmal Gameweek 6 for all three, where they all failed to reach the average score.

Is going more ‘casual’ the answer? The crew consider where they would be in the overall Fantasy Premier League rankings if they’d have done nothing since Gameweek 1. The pros and cons of under and over managing an FPL team are also considered as they look to turn around their season.

A rethink in defence may be needed, with former whipping boys showing signs of improvement.

Meanwhile, cheap strikers, such as Patrick Bamford (£5.9m), are back in vogue. Given the Leeds United forward’s hat-trick last time out it, is little wonder FPL managers are looking to cut costs as they attempt to boost points hauls up top.

Karam takes his turn to pick a differential. Taking into account the Scoutcasters’ previous choices struggle for gametime, even appearance points would be a victory.

There are next four fixtures to frisk, with a keen eye on West Ham and their budget striker Michail Antonio (£6.3m).

This episode finishes off with transfer and captaincy plans for the week ahead.

      Sit back, have a cold one and wait for the points to come rolling in

      Lamptey -> Coufal rather than wasting a FT IMO

      Either cash in on Lamp or Maupay out to use a FT

    4. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      I'd definitely upgrade Lamptey or Maupay to Coufal Bamford

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Is Maupay to Bamford an upgrade?

    3. Karan14

      Hold FT Rodriguez is a doubt as well.

      Have exact funds for Barnes / Jimmy / Watkins >> Foden / Kane / Antonio over 2 gw's but only 1FT. Also need to spend an FT for a defender soon

      Martinez
      Taa - Saiss* - James* --- Mitchell* Lamptey (tot)...*(not nailed)
      Salah(c) - Son - Havertz - Barnes
      Jimmy - DCL - Watkins

      A: Barnes + Jimmy >> Foden + Kane (-4)..and Watkins > Antonio next gw
      B: Jimmy >> Kane and give Barnes one more game. take the hit next gw
      C: Something else i.e. leave barnes (lee,WOL) and instead remove James who isn't nailed

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years

        A. Get hit done.

      Thoughts on these moves for -4?

      1. n-doggg
        • 8 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        Looks pretty good. But not sure worth a -4

        • 5 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        TAA, Jimi > Kilman, Kane work?
        James could wait and save a -4

        1. Dexters Laboratory
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            Do this instead and save the -4

          • Karan14

            • 4 Years
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            I have considered that but my defence looks like a disaster without Chilwell. Also I really like him as an option with favourable fixtures and great attacking stats.

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years

              It's an easy route to get Sterling/KDB in GW10.

        4. ElliotJHP

          Barnes -> Grealish or roll FT and sort out the defence? £0.3 ITB

          Martinez
          Trent Saiss James
          Salah Foden Son Barnes
          Ings Kane DCL

            • 4 Years
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            Roll FT, hopefully James starts vs Burnley to provide a bit of width and Azpi starts tonight for his experience with Silva left behind.

          2. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            Defence does need something.

          3. Dexters Laboratory
              29 days, 18 hours ago

              Barnes doesn't fill me with any confidence. Think him to Grealish is a good move. Stats back it up

                  Foden is one of those players that could Haul or be benched. I've went with him and think he's a good shout especially with ManC defensive woes. We saw how bad they were without his spark

                      ideally I would want KDB but I think I will have to go for a poorer option but if I have a good bench cover it could work.
                      Or I go for a talisman of the team - Zaha.

                      I'd move out Havertz, Saiss

                          29 days, 18 hours ago

                          Bookie's have Wolves 2nd fav to keep a clean sheet this week but buying in Coufal/Dias is definitely on the cards

                            maybe but this season is bonkers! Wolves are strong at the back but anything could happen

                            1. Boly Would
                              • 4 Years
                              29 days, 18 hours ago

                              Wolves have tough fixtures coming up. I'd do Havertz/Saiss too.

                              1. Dexters Laboratory
                                  29 days, 18 hours ago

                                  So Havertz to Grealish looks like the general opinion and then asses the 2nd transfer. Chilwell/Bruno/Save looking like the two to get in

                          29 days, 18 hours ago

                          Havertz & James to Grealish/Zaha & Chilwell

                          1. Dexters Laboratory
                              29 days, 18 hours ago

                              That was my original plan on Sunday and definitely could see myself going back to. Realistically it came down to who'd get more points. James/Bruno or Pulisic/Chilwell. Bruno's stats are fantastic and we all know Refs love a good ManU penalty

                                Think tonight and Frank's presser may make thr decision for me. Thanks everyone for the input.

                            Worth keeping Robbo after this week?
                            Fixtures are not the best and with Fabinho also injured, it doesn't look good for their CS prospects.

                            Wham have a good run of games starting gw 8, could be a good swap to make.

                              I have TAA. Will be downgrading to Coufal most probably after this GW.

                              A easy.
                              Zaha also a great option but I went Grealish for the long-term fixtures.

                                  It’s fantasy that he’s going to make up for the lack CSs by suddenly getting a goal or assist every game...when that starts happening bring him, or the cheaper Robbo, in then

                              Made some stupid transfers and now relying on Bamford to rise and Antonio to drop to get the team I want.
                              Chances of both happening? Antonio has been lingering around the drop mark for a week or so.

                                Antonio is injured so likely to drop but not sure why you want him to drop. Don’t transfer him in if that’s your plan; there are reports that the injury is serious.

                                  Are there? I haven't heard. He's be in next week in any event so have time. Shame for him to be out long term.

                                    Nothing confirmed yet but there is a twitter account who is always right about West Ham, he said it’s more serious than initially thought.

                                Bamford already rose once, so unlikely again this week with only a day or two left...if Antonio is confirmed out he’ll drop

                                He might be out for around 3 or 4 weeks.

                              Digne-> 4.5 defender to upgrade Anguissa ->Grealish (just enough money itb)
                              I am thinking of Vestegaard or KWP.... I dont have McCarthy..?
                              Wise move considering the fixtures...? Any alternate options ? My other defenders are Chilwell+Saiss+Lamptey+Mitchell

                                  I like Foden. Will be getting him GW10.

                                  Otherwise Soucek still massively interests me, he is *living* in the penalty area. Barkley could also be good.

                                  In order of preference
                                  D) Keep Podence for 1 more week. Switch to Barkley if you cant afford Grealish.
                                  B) Bowen stocks are volatile. 12.6K transfer outs and 11.7K transfer ins.
                                  A) Might not be in the 11 every week.

                                  Mitchell, Justin and Kilman all have some doubts as to keeping their places...I’d sacrifice Ings or Hames to upgrade some of them

                                  Cheap and nailed, playing at wing-back for a decent WHU side with great fixtures. I prefer Creswell for set piece threat but 0.5 more.

                                Branthwaite > Kilman? Or maybe dump Ward instead?

                                Captain Salah or Son?

                                Heart says Salah
                                Brain says Son as i dont have Kane

                                  I'm on Son at the minute but wavering back to Salah

                                    Ive switched between the two like 10 times this gameweek

                                  I'm going Salah but I'm a biased LFC fan so....

                                  Brain's choice has been winning over Heart's choice....
                                  Might be worth to try Brain's choice once. Never look back at Brain if it flops 😀

                                    Think it was laterisers comment on doing what you want. If Son does well it wont hurt too much as my ML will have captained Kane instead i think. If Salah does well and Son blanks it would hurt more as i didnt follow my gameplan because of other pressures

                                    Same but KDB! Ruled out city player as they are differential enough for me in my ML

                                      Same here actually. But I am 26 points behind the leader and want to cover that gap.

                                2 FTs (0.1 itb) so looking to burn one probably:

                                Martinez (Forster)
                                TAA / KWP / Castagna / Chilwell (Lamptey)
                                Sterling / Salah / Son (Anguissa / Bissouma)
                                DCL / Jimenez / Wilson

                                Lamptey to Coufal? TAA to Robertson? Wilson to Bamford? Or get rid one of the cheap mids? No idea

                                1. cigan
                                  • 2 Years
                                  29 days, 17 hours ago

                                  Maybe downgrade Castagne (next 3 fixtures don't look too good) so you can upgrade 1 of the cheap mids later?

                              • cigan
                                • 2 Years

                                Was all set to spend my 2 FT for Wilson+Digne > Kane+Kilman (Trent & Lloris out next) but a couple of things happened since then:

                                - Kilman now 4.2 (can't afford that move anymore)
                                - Digne now only suspended for 1 game (also has a great run after Utd)
                                - Trent looked back to his absolute best yesterday (sale could easily backfire but Liv down to their bare bones in def.)
                                - My 3 cheap strikers have been scoring points (no rush to get rid of any, though I want Kane)
                                - Lloris got a 9-pointer and Spurs looked much more solid defensively (mad to sell before gw9)

                                So I'm thinking about:
                                A) Wilson+Trent > Kane+Konsa/James(che) (or any other defender for max. 5.4)
                                B) Lewis > Chilwell (+ save the other FT for more flexibility when fixtures turn)

                                This is the team:

                                Lloris
                                Trent Robbo Digne*
                                Mane Son Grealish Foden
                                DCL Adams Wilson
                                (Mitchell Bissouma Lewis)

                                What do you think?

                                Keep or use my free transfer? Tempted to do Wilson to Bamford.

                                Potential team after 2ft (TAA+Jimenez to Zouma and Kane) - will wait until friday of course...
                                Chelsea have excellent next 3 fixtures, all teams that struggle to score.

                                Go for it?

                                  Not sure about double Chelsea defence just yet. Prefer Cresswell at 5.0 vs Zouma if you can bench him this GW
