FFS International: Who are the best West Ham assets for their strong run of fixtures?

As Fantasy Football Scout continues to expand to the furthest reaches of the globe, we take a look at the newest members of FFS International and get their views on which West Ham assets are most appealing for their favourable run of fixtures.


Fantasy Football Scout’s global community continues to grow with every passing year. Over the last season c. 4.7m Fantasy managers have visited the site from six continents and 234 countries.

As well as the United Kingdom, the list of top 10 countries is made up of:

  • The United States of America
  • The Republic of Ireland
  • Norway
  • Australia
  • India
  • Malaysia
  • Singapore
  • Sweden
  • Nigeria

With the continued growth of the Fantasy Football Scout userbase, we have developed FFS International and launched the Arabic language section of our website to enable us to increase and improve the content we can offer globally.

The Fantasy Football Scout community already contains Pro Pundits from all over the world, the Scout Network and Scout Academy both have global members, and now under the banner of FFS International, we can bring together much of the best content from across the planet.

This week we have added five new members to the FFS International community:


Are West Ham assets good options? If so who should we invest in?

The Hammers have just entered a nice run of fixtures which lasts right through until beyond Gameweek 18 and, as a result, they are on the radars of many FPL managers.

Some of the members of FFS International assess which West Ham players are the best options over this period.

Overlooked Fornals can benefit from West Ham's appealing fixture run

Vladimir Coufal (£4.5m) is our top choice from West Ham. The Czech defender has been impressive, playing every minute of every game since his arrival in the Premier League ahead of Gameweek 4. In the five matches he played, he has two assists and two clean sheets, making him arguably the best defender in the game at his price point of £4.5m. His low ownership of 1.5% also makes him a great differential.

Pablo Fornals (£6.4m) also looks like a good option. He is currently West Ham’s top FPL points scorer. Whilst listed in the game as a midfielder, he is deployed on the left side of the front three and brings guile and creativity to the Hammers’ attack. He has already matched his goal tally of his previous season and has three assists to his name. Regardless of whoever West Ham play as their frontman, Fornals is capable of contributing.

Tomas Soucek (£4.9m) has been the mainstay of the West Ham side since joining in January 2020. He has the most FPL points (27) of any midfielder priced at less than £5.0m so he makes a perfect choice as a fifth FPL midfielder you may or may not want to play. He’ll definitely get the minutes and is a goal threat going forward at set pieces. He has 44 goals in 206 games in his career – a very decent record.

Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m) caught the eye in Gameweek 8, earning a whopping 15 points with a clean sheet, a penalty save and three bonus points. However, we do not recommend bringing him in. It is not often that goalkeepers earn the maximum bonus and that usually happens when the custodian in question makes a penalty save and keeps a clean sheet. Against Fulham, Fabianski was lucky as Ademola Lookman fluffed his spot-kick with a Panenka attempt. All in all, penalty saves are rare: Fabianski himself has made just seven of them in his 14-year Premier League career. Going for another ‘keeper like Alex McCarthy saves you 0.5m. Another alternative would be Edouard Mendy, who at £5.1m has kept three clean sheets in the four games he played.

Block 5

In terms of schedule, West Ham has a kind fixture list over the next five Gameweeks, which invites a deeper look into their assets and where to invest.

From an attacking point of view, the loss of Michail Antonio (£6.2m) to injury was a big blow. Out of all of West Ham’s attacking assets, Antonio was the one with the big underlying numbers and attacking contributions. He was also very consistent against all types of opponents. Aside from Antonio, the rest are not proven at this level or their underlying numbers are not strong enough to warrant strong consideration. Soucek, however, looks to be one of the best enablers in the game this year and would be perfect as the 11th pick in your starting line-up.

I’d be more inclined to invest in West Ham’s backline given that they have the best defensive fixtures over the next five, according to the Season Ticker. Aaron Cresswell (£5.1m) looks to be the standout option given that he has multiple routes to points, but in that price range, I’d be more tempted by Joao Cancelo or even a punt on Reece James rather than spend that amount on a West Ham defender. At £4.5m, however, both Coufal and Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) offer great value. Coufal is a more certain starter if any change in formation occurs, and his safe playing style performs better on the Bonus Points System. On the other hand, Masuaku’s underlying numbers are better and his more adventurous playing style gives him a better opportunity to contribute in attack. All three are good options, and your choice may well depend on your budget and your squad depth.

It’s been quite a reversal of fortunes for clubs like West Ham and Aston Villa, after finishing 16th and 17th last season respectively. And here we are giving serious thought to FPL asset double-ups in both cases as their fixture schedules ease.

I’ve looked closely at the numbers. West Ham, in Gameweeks 1-4, showed early signs of defensive improvement before facing Spurs, Man City and Liverpool. During these opening Gameweeks, the Hammers conceded only seven shots on target (the lowest in the Premier League), kept two clean sheets and conceded only four goals.

That prompted me to move for Cresswell last week as their fixtures begin to take on a similar path to those opening Gameweeks. Cresswell has created 17 chances for his teammates thus far, the most out of any other FPL defender.

New signings Coufal and Masuaku are budget entries and play more advanced roles than Cresswell. The two wing-backs have both started every game since Gameweek 4. Fabianski exploded into the frame in Gameweek 8 with 15 points, reminding us all of his proven FPL pedigree; a great set-and-forget option at £5.0m for anyone on a Wildcard this week or miserable Aaron Ramsdale owners, like myself!

Going forward, Antonio could offer tremendous value now at 6.2m, as he resumes training. In my opinion, a fit Antonio trumps any other FPL option in this West Ham side and it will be interesting to see if he recovers sufficiently over the international break. I wouldn’t rule out a Cresswell and Antonio double-up, although there is a lingering worry over the latter’s troublesome hamstrings.

Other great budget striker options have emerged, such as Ollie Watkins and Patrick Bamford, who may be safer choices over Antonio for the medium term at least. Soucek loves a shot, matching Son Heung-min with his goal attempts (18) and shots inside the box (13) numbers this season. For me, he is a very viable and cheap Daniel Podence direct replacement.

American’s Talk FPL

The injury to Antonio came at a very unfortunate time, right when thousands of managers were likely ready to bring him in following the nightmare fixture list to begin the season. Nevertheless, we still see plenty of value in this West Ham side, just no longer from the forward position – at least until Antonio is back and healthy.

Our top recommendation for the friendly fixture turn is Cresswell, as he provides clean sheet potential, attacking threat (from set pieces) and great security for starts. The more budget defensive options of Masuaku and Coufal also look like great picks but both trail Cresswell, due to possible game-time issues for Masuaku (if Moyes ever changed to a back four, he could very well lose his spot) and a bit less attacking potential from Coufal. ​

Turning to midfield, the two standout options thus far have been Jarrod Bowen (£6.3) and Fornals. However, Said Benrahma (£6.0m) is all of a sudden muddying the waters here, staking his claim for more minutes with an assist and a solid showing last time out against Fulham. It’s unclear who would potentially lose their spot should Benrahma prove too influential to stay on the bench, but that little bit of uncertainty makes us hesitate to dive into any of these assets, and if we had to recommend somebody in this price range across the entire league, would likely opt for the in-form Diogo Jota, Jack Grealish or Wilfried Zaha.

Perhaps the best route into West Ham’s midfield is also the cheapest, with Soucek providing security of starts, strong value, and plenty of attacking potential that finally resulted in his first goal of the season last time out.

What’s new from our FFS International Members?

FFTitans

Ahead of Gameweek 9, the FFTitans will have their regular FPL content – a post looking at stats and a preview of the upcoming Gameweek. As well as this they will be producing a selection of possible Wildcard teams, based on some statistical metrics. They will also be selecting their favourite captain choices of the week.

Over the international break, FFTitans have delved into the validity of awarding FPL assists for winning penalties as well as selecting a set-and-forget goalkeeper for the Gameweeks to come.

They have also produced content ahead of UCL Fantasy Matchday 4 – a point in the game they believe to be a great opportunity to utilise the Wildcard chip.

Block 5

During the first week of the international break, Block 5 has released two special episodes of the podcast, covering:

  1. Chips and Double/Blank Gameweek planning
  2. How to differentiate smartly in FPL

During the upcoming days, Block 5 will also be releasing the regular weekly episode of the podcast covering fixture swings and underlying numbers, as well as translating episodes of some of the best FPL pods around and producing the Gameweek 9 detailed preview.

Cathal (@FPLCrypto) and Gabriel (@FPLLens) are working hard to re-launch the popular “6 Picks” Weekly Contest, from Gameweek 9 onwards. The Weekly Contest is a side-game on the FPLCrypto YouTube channel where viewers choose one FPL player in each of six categories for a given Gameweek. FPL Crypto offers up a prize for the weekly winner. Look out for the YouTube video, scheduled to come out early next week, after which participants have until the Gameweek deadline to enter their picks.

        Antonio is currently flagged red as not fit without a return date in sight. And it is Antonio, so injury prone player

          he’ll be back 🙂 ... nice and rested for the fantastic run of fixtures

    3. Boleyn Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I wouldn't recommend bringing in Fornals. Benrahma looks likely to take his place in the team soon. Cresswell is the best defensive choice if you have the funds due to his set piece duties

      1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        but what about the fixtures from defensive point of view? they don't scream CSs to me

        1. Boleyn Boy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          CSs seem to be more difficult to predict this season anyway. I think Cresswell's attacking potential combined with possible clean sheets makes him worth considering. He's even taking direct freekicks

      2. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Any idea if Antonio will be fit for gw 9?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          He might be but if you haven't already got him I'd hold off from buying him until he has played a few minutes. Moyes likes to ease players back in

            • 8 Years

        I agree with Block 5 on Cresswell.

        I’d rather pay £0.3 more and get Cancelo and settle on Coufal. That’s indeed what I’ve done on my WC this week.

          Cresswell in the form of his life, has already got more assist than the whole of last season. However as a life long WHU supporter I am still suspicious about how well we have defended. I am going Coufal to replace Dallas low risk high reward and and I can pick which games he plays.....If I go Cresswell I would feel that I would have to play him every GW due to price point, which is why I gave gone Cancello.

            • 10 Years

            Kane and Bissouma to KDB and Watkins.
            I guess it's who I want this week - Son / Grealish / KDB.
            KDB has the highest points projection, but it would be a -4 and there isn't much between the 3.
            Perhaps I just stay as I am for now and hold the FT

        5. Dexters Laboratory
            2 months, 10 days ago

            B) KDB definitely an upgrade over Grealish

              Can bring in Forster for Steer (backup to McCarthy). Also, there aren't many options under 4.2m for defender as Mitchell's replacement.

                Good shout with Forster. Shame you can’t stretch to Kilman over Mitchell

                  Short by 0.1m. I trust Mitchell to get back his place once he's back. PVA shouldn't stay for long tbh.

                    Maybe just go super cheap for your 5th defender and assume they won't play. Neco williams? I just think Mitchell won't play but will also lose value over the coming months

                2. Dexters Laboratory
                    2 months, 10 days ago

                    Steer to Forester
                    Bisso to 4.4
                    Mitchell to Kilman
                    You'll never actually start Bisso and Kilman could get more points

              Nice. Agree on the Mitchell comment.

              Any plans for the city boys when fixtures turn?

              I'm currently toying with playing my WC but too uncertain to pull the trigger yet.

                2 months, 10 days ago

                Depending on how Kane performs in the next 2 GWs, can downgrade him and upgrade Bruno to KDB. But right now, I'm not too keen on City assets although GWs 10-15 look tasty.

              Thinking after this week Cancelo for Dallas and then maybe Son for a City asset?

              Son or JRod to Bruno.

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                I would wager that JRod will score more points over the next three than Bruno.........If you had to make a change then I would lose Son, but I would hold till GW10

            Toying with various strategies, any help appreciated.

            McCarthy

            Chilwell, Robbo, Lamptey Taylor (Mitchell)

            Salah, Son, Grealish, J.Rod (Trossard)

            Kane, Mitro (Brewster)

            2FT and 1.9ITB.

            A) Trossard - Soucek, Son - KDB
            B) Son - Ziyech and save FT
            C) Mitro - Watkins and save FT

            Unsure whether to get KDB now or make more transfers next week to deal with the fixture shift.

            I hate Mitro but might leave him for one more week...how many times have I already said this?!

            Any advice welcome!

                Can you stretch to Eze over Soucek? Otherwise A looks good

                  I hadn't considered him but I like it. I'll do some calculations! I think Kane out in the next few weeks might fund more of a reshuffle.

                0FT 6m itb. Podence to Bruno/KDB/Ziyech for a -4? What do you fine fellows think?

                  Yes - KDB or Bruno is worth a hit on Podence

                    2 months, 10 days ago

                    KDB definitely worth the -4 for the next 5 Gws

                    1. Rasping Drive
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      Cheers Dexter; that’s what I’m running over in my head - bringing in Bruno would cost me an extra -4. His stats since he came to the Premier League have been stellar but United’s fixtures after West Brom (who I don’t think will be pushovers by any means) That said he always seems to find a way to score points, even if his team are not playing well.

                      1. Villan
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 6 Years
                        2 months, 10 days ago

                        Sounds good logic. Then downgrade Regulion, upgrade Son to KDB?

                        1. Rasping Drive
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          • 11 Years
                          2 months, 10 days ago

                          Yes, pretty much that’s the plan, but I would have to downgrade Robertson to someone like Cancelo to free up funds for the KDB move

                      2. Dexters Laboratory
                          2 months, 10 days ago

                          I'm probably getting both
                          GW9 Foden Kane to Bruno Watkins
                          GW10 Son Semedo to KDB Coufal

                          1. Rasping Drive

                            2 months, 10 days ago

                            Sounds decent, too. I could go Ziyech instead of Bruno which would save me a hit. Fingers crossed that Kane and Son don’t ruin the party!

                    Seem fairly settled on this PK taker team.

                    Martinez Forster
                    PvA Lamptey Justin Taylor Lewis
                    Salah KdB Bruno Berge Soucek
                    Werner Richarlison Watkins

                    1.2 ITB for Vardy next week.
                    Your thoughts?

                      I don't like ur defence and berge and Soucek

                      1. Slitherene
                        • 2 Years
                        2 months, 10 days ago

                        Surprisingly my defense rotates well with Berge & Soucek.

                      • 6 Years
                      2 months, 10 days ago

                      Berge is the only pick I don't like personally

                      1. Slitherene
                        • 2 Years
                        2 months, 10 days ago

                        He'll only play probably 2-3 times in the next 10.

                      A) Son -> Fernandes

                      B) Foden -> Rashford

                      C) Neither

                        A or C

                    • ace3.1415
                        2 months, 10 days ago

                        Rashford or Ziyech?

                        1. Villan
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          2 months, 10 days ago

                          If you go Rashford then you can easily drop to Ziyech.

                          I still don't trust Frank roulette personally

                          1. Tonyawesome69

                            I don't see Ziyech being rotated. He is heavily involved in most of their attacks.

                          Use this transfer plan or play wildcard right now and make all the changes?

                            Team doesn't look like it needs a wc

                            Don't think I'd go with 2 x 4.5 attackers though personally

                            1. Samir16
                                2 months, 10 days ago

                                bamford is above 6 now so brewster would be the only 4.5 attacker

                              WC this week or next I think to take advantage of the fixture swing

                                  2 months, 10 days ago

                                  what about saving wildcard for gw16 and then making a team for potential double game weeks in 18 or 19

                              Might start Brewster over Foden this week if I don't get rid of Foden....

                              Am I mad??

                                Probably

                                Foden and Brewster are both bad picks.

                                Not really mad. If you're not planning to get rid of Foden then 2 points is hardly a disaster for a 4.5. And for all the poor stats and eye test, the guy is still a striker playing at home to a middling team.

                                  Tbh the biggest problem I have with Brewster is even with SU making chances, he isn't involved much at all. I forgot he was on the pitch against Chelsea he was that anonymous.

                                Son Reguilon to Bruno Cancelo or only Son move and play Kilman?

                                Will also probably not bring City for now and do Kane to Vardy next week.

                                Which move do you think I should make?

                                A) Son --> KDB

                                D) 2 of the above for a -4

                                  It kinda depends how long you wanna hold Bruno for?

                                    thanks, I'm hoping EVE perform again when all their main players are back. Also I'm looking into this move for GW12.

                                  actually A&C & go 3 at the back?

                                    meant A&B there not C

                                      Thanks, I may go for this and take the -4. It is the more aggressive move but the majority of the hits I've taken so far have not worked.

                                  Which striker/midfielder/defender will score the most in their respective positions over the next 5-8 GW’s?

                                  Thoughts on this wc lot? Maybe Jesus isn't the way to go..

                                  DCL, Bamford, Jesus

                                    2 months, 10 days ago

                                    Prefer Werner over Jesus and Watkins over Bamford but other than that it's fine. Probably a few benching headaches down the line too.

                                      Double Chelsea?
                                      Why Watkins over Bamford? Haven't seen both play actually to be honest

                                    Konsa is robbing you of a straight swap from DCL or Bamford to Watkins. If you are going to play with two cheap strikers then options are vital

                                    1. Tonyawesome69
                                      • 2 Years

                                      I agree with both comments. Looks like you are set up as a 343 and 352. Konsa can be 3.9 def and that allows you to bring in Watkins, removes the benching headache and use the funds elsewhere

                                    my 1st thoughts are:

                                    Jesus to Antonio
                                    Ziyech to KDB/Sterling

                                    is that doable?

                                      2 months, 10 days ago

                                      if Antonio is fit obviously

                                    2. Tshelby
                                      • 6 Years
                                      2 months, 10 days ago

                                      Can't afford it would need to downgrade Chilwell and Cancelo

                                    3. Olson

                                      If you rely on 3 cheap strikers (i.e at or below the cost of your most expensive option: DCL) then your options are:

                                      Bamford, Watkins, Antonio, Maupay, Wilson, Adams, DCL

                                      Does anyone want Maupay, no. Right now Wilson and Antonio are injured. If you play Watkins, DCL and Bamford that leaves you (at this moment in time) with Adams as your only replacement for an injured/out of form/hurrendous fixtures player.

                                      This is fairly typical of what happens over a season

                                      3 cheap strikers is a bit of a disaster imo. At least one mid to premium opens up the pool of players massively

                                    Good team - Jesus is good differential as most will go KDB and a weaker forward

                                      You'd seriously take Rashford out for a hit, ahead of West Brom at home? Sounds a bit mad to me.

                                  Looking weeks ahead (mainly now Saiss replacement but dont think I take a hit)
                                  A) Cancelo,Podence,Kane (Lamptey 1st sub)
                                  B) Kilman,KDB, Bamford (Kilman rotate with Lamptey)

                                  Do any of these 'literally who?'s of the ffs international and the scout network have reasonable rank histories? I would like a list of their HoF ranks so i know wether they are frauds or worth listening to...

                                    If you can't tell the quality of advice you're receiving on its own merit, then really you're just being spoonfed regardless

                                  Who would you prioritise selling first, Podence or Foden ? Tricky one this as I recognise Podence is getting minutes but if Foden starts getting more game time over the next 2-3 GW's he's likely to offer great value. I'm tempted to ship one of them for Grealish and toying with a -4 for the other to Ziyech.

                                    I'd take Podence out first mate.

                                      Morning Tom, hope all is well, almost the weekend, albeit no prem action to enjoy, got the Masters at least. Yeah I'm leaning that way too, do you reckon it's worth keeping Foden for the next 3 ? So tempted to move him on for Ziyech, lack of minutes has been really disappointing but I know as soon as I sell he'll start and brace haha, it's inevitable.

                                        Depends on the rest of your setup. Don't think he's a priority to move on given fixtures, but at the same time, Ziyech is clearly an upgrade.

                                          Rest of my set up can't really accommodate Foden being benched, see below. I will wait until IB is over but think the -4 could be on.

                                          Foden, Podence & Kane to Watkins, Grealish & Ziyech on the cards currently. I have another move planned in GW10 so it's ditch Foden now, or not until GW12 given fixtures.
