Scoutcast Episode 354 – How can FPL bosses fit in Salah, De Bruyne and Fernandes?

Joe and Az are joined by Karam to look ahead to Gameweek 11 and assess the key challenges facing Fantasy Premier League managers.

Chief among their concerns is the postponement of Friday night’s clash between Aston Villa and Newcastle United. There is a chance that it could be rearranged within the Gameweek but if not, FPL managers face some tough choices. Should they bench or swap out the likes of Villa talisman Jack Grealish (£7.7m) or Newcastle striker Callum Wilson (£6.5m)?

Our Scoutcast trio also discuss the three most talked about players of the week: Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (£12.2m), Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne (£11.7m) and Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes (£10.9m). These midfield picks are showing remarkable consistency but with hefty price tags, it may be tricky to fit them all in. Can they be ‘covered’ by the likes of Reds midfielder Diogo Jota (£6.8m) and City winger Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m)?

Pep Guardiola’s latest round of roulette is also on the bill. This chat will be of particular interest to those clinging onto City rotation risks such as Raheem Sterling (£11.4m).

Meanwhile, Joe, Az and Karam give their top tips for climbing up the rankings ahead of Christmas. Within this section, Karam takes his turn to pick a differential, which garners approval from Joe and Az.

The usual features are also covered in the show, with next four fixtures frisked, rough with the smooths aired, and transfer and captaincy plans revealed.

    Does Kane Podence to Antonio/Bamford KDB (-4) still look the best bet here? Probably what I'm most keen on, despite Martinez being out and Cancelo a rotation risk. 1FT 2.6m ITB

    Martinez** (Steer**)
    Robbo Cancelo Lamptey (Coufal Mitchell)
    Bruno Son Ziyech JRodriguez Podence
    Kane* DCL (Davis**)

    Likely shipping Hamez for Jota next week too, and maybe Cancelo for Chilwell. Thanks all as always 🙂

    1. drughi

      4 months, 21 days ago

      I think kane plays and has a great record against arsenal

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        True every chance he does. But I still have Son for that game too, and there's also KDB against Fulham, and with excellent other fixtures coming up.

        Wwyd then?

    2. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Got to get KDB this week and Kane looks the easiest route.

      Coufal is ok sub for Cancelo

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Yeah I'm thinking that. Should get at least a point or two from him if needbe.

    3. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Don’t like those moves at all, ditching Kane ahead of Arsenal and ditching Podence when he returned last week and Jimi is out.

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Last week returns don't dictate this week though. Podence has Liverpool while KDB has Fulham, and more good fixtures to come. Still have Son too, while Kane been dropping deeper recently and still got some tough-ish fixtures upcoming.

        Wwyd instead then? are you advocating going without a City player?

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 21 days ago

          I’d just do a keeper move, no I’m not overly bothered by City unless there is an expensive/useless asset to move on.
          Liverpool’s defence does not inspire me with confidence, I personally wouldn’t lose podence, but I don’t own him so easy to say that

          1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

            Fair. Very hard to pick a keeper who'll consistently do well though - and I've been happy enough with Martinez set and forget, and he still has good fixtures plus 2 DGW now

            1. Trophé Mourinho
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              4 months, 21 days ago

              Maybe do steer to someone

    4. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      I would sell JRod instead of podence

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Hamez v Burnley or Podence v Liverpool though - really?

        Selling Hamez next week almost certainly anyway

  2. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    This weekend has the makings of a classic:

    Kane not in squad
    Mahrez bench
    Sterling start

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Disgusting scenes

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Cancelo Dias benched
      Fernandes sent off
      2 minutes in KDB decides to take up public speaking etc

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Haha amazing

      2. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Wouldn't mind Cancelo benching but I have Kilman too so both look like they are no longer starters.

        Would have to go with Coufal, Chilwell and Targett. Ah, so that's only 2 defenders then.
        Oops!

    3. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      would looove it

    4. Jellyfish
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Add Jota to the bench and it will be carnage

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      That would be my dream scenario. I have no Kane and still have Sterling.

    6. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      It's called dream KK

  3. TheDragon

    If ever there was a week for us suffering with Villa and Newcastle players to be treated to a Bissouma hattrick this is it

    1. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      I can see the comments from Brosstan now:

      "casuals wins again" "how jammy can casuals get" "im so done with this jammy game, casuals wins again"

      1. The Train Driver

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 21 days ago

      I checked Bissouma stats the other day, a goal is very unlikely lol

      1. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        So you are saying there is hope? 🙂

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 21 days ago

          Someone’s got to win the lottery

  4. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    GTG?

    Forster
    Robbo Dias Zouma Mitchell
    KDB (C) Bruno son Anguissa
    DCL Adams

    Martinez, Grealish, Watkins, Kilman

    1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Yes - though unlikely Mitchell plays surely

      1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        yeah im expecting kilman for 0 points off the bench

    2. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Any hope that Mitchell starts?

      Bissouma is going to hugely outscore Anguissa 🙂

      1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        probably not, yeah im gutted anguissa has a rough game this week but he got an assist last week so who knows

    3. Would Ed Woodward
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      I think Kilman will start again this week so you'll probably get 1 point from him, pretty tasty.

      1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        mouth watering, Its a battle with him and Anguissa who can get the most points.

  5. thewhitepele
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Got about 8-9 starters this week and no GK. 1ft & 2.4m ITB. Best move here? Not keen on getting rid of Grealish.

    Martinez*
    Chilwell Cancelo Lamptey KWP
    Bruno Son Jota Bissouma
    DCL Kane*

    Martin Grealish* Maupay* Konsa*

    A) Maupay --> Antonio (no GK)
    B) Martinez, Maupay --> Mendy, Tammy(-4)
    C) Something else?

    1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      I'd say A. You taking Antonio over BAmford?

      1. thewhitepele
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Haven't decided on it yet but currently leaning towards Antonio. Can definitely see him scoring vs. MUN but Bamford vs CHE seems less likely.

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      C Maupay to Bamford

  6. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    How’s this looking?

    No keeper & Kane & Robbo flagged?

    Lamptey first on bench?

    #Martinez,
    Zouma, Chilwell, Robbo
    Bruno VC, Son, Jota, Mahrez C
    DCL, Kane, Bamford

    Forster, Coufal, Lamptey, Grealish,

    .2 bank

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Looks fine. Would expect both Robbo and Kane to start.

    2. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      robbo will be fine, not sure about kane

      play forster 😉

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  7. thewhitepele

  8. farqy

    4 months, 21 days ago

    Anyone here think the following two transfers are worth a -8pts...?

    Ziyech & Kane ----> De Bruyne & Werner

    Cheers!!!

    1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      no

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Don’t think it’s worth it for free, altho I would lose Ziyech after Leeds probably

    3. TNB
        4 months, 21 days ago

        no

      • Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Tough one.

        Probably not for 8 but only you can decide if its worth it or not as it's you that will have to deal with the consequences of those moves on Saturday and Sunday evening.

    4. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Would you rather be stuck with Bamford/Antonio or Podence

      1. TNB
          4 months, 21 days ago

          Bamford/Antonio

        • Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Bamford

          1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

            Cheers all. I fully don't get the Bamford love being so decisive over Antonio though. Stats aren't everything if you're just a crap finisher, and Bamford fixtures aren't even good

            1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              4 months, 21 days ago

              If you want antonio then go for it!

              He is a good player and may take pens, right now I just think I'd prefer Bamford until Antonio proves his fitness

          • 6 Years

          McCarthy

          Lamptey-Chilwell-Coufal-Mitchell

          Bamford - DCL

          ((Martin-Watkins-Grealish-Bernardo

          I have 1FT with 0.1 ITB

          1. Leave the teams as it is and rollover FT (risk: Mitchell might not play)
          2. Swap Watkins for Adams for free and play 3 strikers by taking Mitchell out
          3 . Any other suggestion

            Im annoyed with Martinez as he hasn't made any saves.

            However villa been unlucky to concede so many, a few screamers form saints and birghton recently and Bowen off his shoulder in last game.

            Hopefully the saves come as well as the double gameweek!

        • The Sociologist
          • 2 Years

          Neto has more points than Mane, Mahrez, Rashford, Jota, and KDB. Since when did that happen?!

          1. Nomar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            4 months, 21 days ago

            I should probably update my mental image of Neto being a washed up 31 year old discount Lucas Moura who Nuno plays because he has no other choice. Difficult though.

              I wouldn't bet on it.

                • 2 Years
                4 months, 21 days ago

                Think he’s the one to benefit from Jimenez out? Fixtures aren’t great.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          People think Antonio starts again this week, with the 45mins last week just easing him back into it?

          Or likely he's benched? Cos if starting, I certainly prefer him vs MUN (and his other upcoming fixtures) over Bamford v chelsea

        • FC Hakkebøf
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 21 days ago

          Planning ahead is nearly impossible under normal circunstances. Under these covid 19 times alongside all the injuries do the fixture congestion, it is even harder. I still feel the need the need to plan a bit, as the transfers you make now will affekt the transfers you're able to do later. Which transfer plan do you prefer?

          A) The holy trinity (Salah, KDB, Bruno)

          GW11: Watkins + Son -> Bamford + Salah
          GW12: Save
          GW13: Kane + Stephens -> Bruno + Brewster

          B) No KDB (but Mahrez AND Kane)

          GW11: Watkins + Stephens -> Brewster + Mahrez
          GW12: KDB + DCL -> Salah + Antonio/Watkins
          GW13: Son -> Bruno

          Thoughts? Actually leaning towards B. Feel like the overall team is stronger. Shift Captain between Bruno, Kane and Salah.

          For the people saying want to keep Villa assets for DGW..

          Will you not FH that week anyway??

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            4 months, 21 days ago

            Impossible to know ahead of time. Plus one of those DGW fixture is City (A)...

          2. FC Hakkebøf
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

            FH in a major blank weekend seems more likely imo. Currently have Robbo, Kane, Cancelo and triple Villa. Will FH if all out

          3. Major League Shocker
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 21 days ago

            If it's DGW19, then I'll want to play BB or TC then.

            If it's just a small DGW with only Villa & Newcastle having an extra fixture, I'd rather play the FH in a BGW.

          4. Iceball
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

            Villa now has two DGWs, yes might FH the bigger one, or use ft down the line (if enough weeks to prepare) to load up on those teams that didnt play GW1. FH might be good in blanks/DGW GW30+

          Kane + Wilson + Stephen’s —> Davis + Bamford + KDB (c) (and play a 3-5-2) worth -8? Imo sets the team up well for the coming weeks.

          Next week can downgrade Ziyech or DCL to free up some funds to upgrade defence/bench

          Rest of team:
          Martinez
          Chillwell / KWP / Dias
          Salah / Fernandes / Ziyech / Grealish
          Kane* / DCL / Wilson*

          Button, Kilman, Michell, Stephen’s.

          Is there anything in defence at 4.0 who could start? May be Phillips at Liverpool?

          One week punt really for Dunne or Mitchell.

          Nothing ITB, don't want to lose grealish and 0.1 off swapping Watkins to Bamford so holding him too.

            gets the chances. Leeds are a very good attacking side.

            He will get some goals soon.

            have you seen Leeds play? Even if his conversion is bad, he is bound to get goals due to number of chances, or even deflected assists

            forget just Bamford, I'm looking at getting in Raphina to join him. Leeds are one of the most attack minded teams in the league.

            His fixtures are some of the best.

            That is an outstandingly good run of games. I want Bamford or Harrison/Raphinha for this run.

              Yeah I'm definitely doing DCL to him after this week. Even the MU game is exciting for attacking returns due to how both teams play.

          How essentially would you rate KDB for this week and going forward? Likely ditching Kane (still have Son too) to get him - but the City man only has 1G 5A so far... has he been unlucky not to get more? Should we see an uptick in form?

            Not very, medium and long term I’d sooner have salah and Bruno I think

            City got going against burnley but they rolled over and gave up, still not certain that they are firing

          Who would you let go of to get Salah in gw12. Assuming 0.5m itb so will need to shift out two of these players to create the funds

          A: KDB
          B: Bruno
          C: Son
          D: Jota
          E: Kane

          Am currently thinking Son + Kane >> Salah + Bamford in gw12. Alternatively just try to find 0.1m in def for KDB > Salah?

          Hey guys. Best 4.5 defender? I actually like Taylor as he's a bit cheaper and Burnley are so stodgy.

          Other options:
          Dallas - Leeds defence is still unpredictable
          Bednarek - 6 point merchant, boring to own

          1. Sco
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

            Dallas. More attacking potential and often OOP.

          2. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

            Dallas - higher potential and more fun to own

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

            Leaning that way too but only using WC gw 16 , certainly high up on the list if Burnley continue to improve defensively

          Comparing Jota and Podence in comparison tool, Podence isn’t as bad an option as people think. Compare last two weeks and ignore the green bit at the top saying the key crap, actually look at the important stats
          Bare in mind Jota has been on fire

              Well I have no room for him and more important things, but if I owned I wouldn’t sell was my point. Watch him score vs pool

            I'm about to go compare Hamez and Podence. Was thinking likely selling both in the net 2 weeks for KDB and Jota, but was gonna ship Podence first this week as he has liverpool to Hamez's burnley...

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            I had Podence. I still think he's quality, but sold for Jota for the price bump & better team (eye on Fulham too)

            It's the consistent second-half substitutions that are the real issue with him. You can argue Jota has the same danger, but he plays for a better attacking team. Wolves never blown teams away.

            Admittedly the Jimenez injury makes Podence more valuable to a wolves than before when I sold him, but I actually think that Neto is the better option.

            1. Hazz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 21 days ago

              TBF - comparison tool shows Neto as better too.

          How does the team look when I bench all the Villa players?

          Taylor the correct player to bench ahead of Ayling and Bissouma? He will probably be auto-subbed when Cancelo is benched

            i think robbo should be fine, are you able to sell kane and mcginn to bruno/KDB and Bamford or striker of similar price. That would be my strategy

            1. Mr. Chimes
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              4 months, 21 days ago

              Yes, Kane out and Bruno in could be done. I already have Bamford so Kane would become fodder. I can only get KDB in on a -8.

            2. Mr. Chimes
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              4 months, 21 days ago

              Actually I can get one or the other for free. Reg could become Chilwell if I go Bruno.

          Would anyone sell Hamez rather than Podence to get KDB?

          Just compared them with comparison tool and the Wolves man actually comes out on top last 4 GW...

          Was mainly looking at fixtures, selling Podence before LIV and giving Hamez one last shot v Burnley before selling next week, but....

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            4 months, 21 days ago

            Tough one this week.

            Burnley is a better fixture for James. Will have more space on the pitch to play.

            Podence will be up against Neco with Allison also unlikely to feature.

            If you're chucking one, I'd chuck the one you're less likely to want to keep longer term.
