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.

    Villa's next 4 are wolves, BUR, wba, C PAL. Waste two transfers to get them out and back in?!

    1. Rupert The Horse

      Them? How many do you have?

        Three

          Oof. That’s a lot of transfers.

            It isn't because I've explained why I'm keeping them

              Where?

                In his basement

        I want to keep Grealish and Martinez

          If your other keeper plays, no possible reason to transfer Martinez

      • Do I Not Like Orange

        I have 3. Looking to move Grealish > Mahrez this GW, then get him back in 13.

          that must be alot of TV no?

          1. Do I Not Like Orange
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Na, would sell for 7.5.

      • NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1

        Indeed. One of reasons why I FH this week

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          But more upside to do in double gameweek. 22+9 is better than 11+(not 22)

      • Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I still think they concede in every game. Martinez out

      • CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        The answer you're looking for is 'No'.

      FanTeam transfers:

      Cancelo > Fofana
      Watkins > ??

      A) Bamford
      B) Jota
      C) Bench Watkins and do Mina > Dias -4.

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        B

    4. GOATMEAT
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Is there anything worth of -4 here?

        Alzate
        Mitchell
        Konsa

        1 one these would need to go to field 10 players this week (I don't have a starting keeper but I won't bother with that).

        0.3 ITB

        Maybe still not worth of -4..

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Yes it’s the perfect week for a hit to sort some stuff out.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Agreed, with the amount of hits that will be flying around this is a perfect time to do it as won't burn you too much.

      • Jam0sh

        Cancelo, stick or twist?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Twist. I don't see any chance of him starting at Fulham.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Sell

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Sell. He won’t play.

        4. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I'm sticking for sure.

          Despite what others are saying, we don't really know if he's been dropped for sure.

          I think he will pick whoever he thinks will serve his tactics the best. If he wants width on the left, he'll play Mendy. If he wants a bit more solidity then he'll go Cancelo.

          Long term, he's a sell I think. But got other fires to put out now thanks to the Villa postponement

        5. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years

          I'm sticking for one week only, which is what I've learnt to do when pep'd

          Is Kane to Jesus worth a hit?

            I would be tempted with a hit to get Kane in this week!

        • Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Martinez!
          Chilwell Dias Lamptey
          KDB Bruno Ziyech Grealish!
          Vardy DCL Wilson!

          (Steer Bissouma Mitchell Kilman)
          1 FT & 1.7m

          Wilson ➡️ Bamford for free?

          Dont want to make a GK transfer for and want to hold Grealish long term too.

          Will be left 0.1m wiggle room for Vardy & Bissouma to Salah(c) & Brewster for a -4 next week which is the bigger priority.

          1. Jo Melon
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Yeah why not. He's getting chances.

            • cigan
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              I've got similar problems. Deffo keeping Grealish and Mitchell but not sure on Wilson/Martinez
              I need to replace Digne and will probably take a hit for Martinez > McCarthy or Wilson > Bamford

              Don't really like Bamford against Chelsea and I hate my keeper because I did Lloris > Martinez 2 weeks ago and look how that went. So I'm probably getting rid of Martinez in order to field 11 players this week (even if 1 is Bissouma)

              1. Karan14
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                A big risk I see with holding Newcastle players (mostly Wilson owners) is we don't know who has tested positive and how they are going to perform in the coming weeks with a Covid affected squad.

                Selling a GK is a waste of transfer imo unless injured or suspended.

                1. cigan
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  yeah waiting for the news on newcastle obviously - won't pull the trigger before friday

                  but Martinez ain't playing this week so it's basically the same as being suspended for 1 game

                2. Troll hunter
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  I admit being guilty of wasting a transfer and selling Martinez for Mendy earlier. The decision making process was clear though. I expected Mendy to get enough more pts before my next WC to warrant that and thought that it was also monetarily solid transfer.

            • Ze_Austin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              You might be down to 9 starters this GW, even after the FT. But the good thing is that you have enough good players to survive it. I agree with the move

              1. Karan14
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                I agree Dias could miss out maybe. I would have got Dallas or Coufal for a hit but even they wont score more than 1-2 points this week given the fixtures so it seems completely pointless. Thinking of just prioritizing the long term picks like Salah & Bamford and write off this gameweek.

                1. Ze_Austin
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  Exactly this. Best of luck

                2. Troll hunter
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  Are you planning to keep Mitchell and Kilman long term? If they won't start I might feel punty and try Neco Williams if I needed cash elsewhere.

          2. The Mantis
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Teams a bit of a mess now as Wilson, Grealish and Martinez aren't playing. I actually don't have a GK for this week now. Not sure what to do, free hit or take some hits?

            Button

            Bellerin Cresswell Chilwell Kilman (Mitchell)

            Salah Jrod Bruno Bissouma

            Vardy DCL

            I was planning on getting KDB somehow but now it looks like I need to make other changes

            1. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Don't play your free hit.

              There'll be an even worse BGW later in the season when you'll probably be wishing for a FH.

              Take a hit and soldier through it.

              1. The Mantis
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                thanks think this is what I'll have to do, haven't take a hit this season and doing quite well so maybe it's the best thing to do this week

            2. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              I'm strongly considering the Free Hit as I have similar problems and no Man City players. If City beat Fulham and score a few it should pay off but still undecided on whether or not I go through with it.

              1. The Mantis
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                It's so tempting, I wouldn't be considering it if City (KDB) hadn't found their form again, but I don't really want to go another week without now. However I would need to take at least -8 to get him in and keep the midfielders that I want to!

            3. linkafu
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Think a -4 for a keeper has not a lot of chance to pay.
              You will want Grealish Back

              For me just Wilson out for Bamford, bench Bissouma or Kilman and save.

              1. The Mantis
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                Yeah gotta get a keeper. It's ashame about Wilson, he's been my differential for quite a while now. Definitely want to keep my man Grealish, brilliant he is!

          3. BobB
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            If someone is likely to be out for weeks then replace them. But we know it's one match, with good fixtures to come.

          4. ZeBestee
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Is Mahrez worth bringing in? or a headache after 1 match?

                His fixtures are not what would cause the headache.

                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  Yes, Pep's chopping and changing is the biggest issue.

            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Any news on Zaha? Yes Im fuming that I got him in the first place.

            1. CONNERS
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              The lack of any news led me to get rid.

              Have taken a one week punt on Mahrez in the faint hope that lightning strikes twice.

            2. The Point About It Is
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              No News yet.....

          6. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Going Kilman + Steer > Reece + Johnstone for -4 to give me:

            Johnstone
            Chilwell Cancelo James Vestergaard
            (C) KDB Salah Bruno Ziyech
            DCL Bamford

            Martinez Brewster Coufal Grealish

            Thinking Cancelo to Neco Williams for free next week, then Vest to Targett for GW13, then Ziyech to Son for GW14. All for free. If nothing else explodes, that is. 0.3M wiggle room for the transfers, so they can be delayed until pressers

            1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
              • 8 Years

              Sounds like a very decent plan

              I'd rather replace Cancelo than Kilman for team balance reasons.

                Fixture. If Cancelo doesn't start vs Fulham, I'll take Brewster off the bench

                If I keep Kilman instead and sell Cancelo, I'd most likely be starting Coufal vs Man U... Or Kilman vs Liverpool. Fixtures dictate the timing of these moves

            A/ Is Werner to Jesus worth a hit?

            B/ Is Son to Mahrez worth a hit?

                Probably 2 no's to be honest.

                But, I do like B) as a risky punt. I wouldn't do it though

                Ouch. I have 4 of those as well as Mitchell. So you are by no means alone in having problems this week.

                I'm gunna do Martinez > McCarthy and hope that Cancelo plays and Brewster can get 2 points (instead of 1)

                Depends on Pulisic's fitness, imo

                Mount is safer

                Tammy a better punt.

                    The chances of Sterling starting depends on whether Pep is using Guinevere or Lancelot to select this weeks team.

                  Mendy the best gk to get and keep for the season?

                  Pros:
                  +Plays for one of the best defensive teams in the league and likely to get the most CS.

                  Cons:
                  -Does not get many save points and Bonus
                  -Already have Chilwell, feel that Reece James will be a better double up rather than Mendy

                    Prefer Chilwell and James. (Chilwell Zouma owner)

                    1 month, 19 days ago

                    Not sure, think there are so many great outfield options in James, Chilwell, Zouma, Mount, Ziyech, Pulisic and Werner that I wouldn't want to lock out a potential triple up of them for Mendy who has a ceiling of about 7-8 points.

                    I don’t like spending more than 4.5ish on my GK

                    Chilwell or James much better due to baps & attacking returns

                    There are many cheaper alternatives to Mendy who can match him for points, at least in a rotation, because Mendy isn't getting many saves. He's like Ederson and Alisson, so he should be 5.5 or 6.0

                    A nailed (!!) Reece James at 5.1 is severely underpriced and unmatched by anybody cheaper, directly or in a rotation. Grabbing bonus points even without any of his many assist attempts being converted since GW1... Meaning we haven't even seen James at his FPL best yet

                  There is a lot of talk here about Sterling, Foden, Cancelo having been dropped but players who are dropped do not play 90 minutes in a competition that's very important for Pep.

                  I think it's unlikely that any of these players will start on the weekend but they are still getting minutes, just not in the competition that's relevant for FPL. They are on the wrong side of the rotation for FPL players, but it doesn't really imply anything on their form or going up or down the list of Pep's preferred players.

                  That doesn't really mean anything in terms of FPL context and I do agree with the conclusion to sell them but just don't understand the phrase "dropped".

                    Don't question your sanity Klaren. Have you heard of gaslighting? If not then Google it. It can happen here at FFS too.

                    (Not saying everyone promoting a certain narrative is gaslighting, but once fear of a certain player being dropped is induced, it spreads rapidly, and gets repeated by many.)

                  a lot of talk about the dreaded "pep roulette", but he has actually been quite consistent with his selections at the back.

                  Ederson, Walker, Dias - played every league game this season

                  Laporte - caught covid at start of season so he missed gw2&3 (gw1 was a blank for city), played in gw4 and was then injured for gw5&6 and returned in the following gw7-9, the only game he missed when fit was gw10 which stones made a surprise appearance

                  Mendy/Cancelo - this is the interesting one, mendy played in every league game when he was fit (gw2-4 and gw10), cancelo merely played as cover whilst mendy was injured in gw5-9. time to sell cancelo!

                  To my great surprize, I'm pretty much the only one in my ML that owns KDB. But you just know that all the rivals are going to cheapskate it with Mahrez and he will mega haul while KDB plays great but gets one assist.

                    Depends on whether you have any bench players coming in for him? If there is, I wouldn't bother as he has good fixtures and he'll have 2 double GWs, but if not I'd sell him or one of your non-playing players as it's essentially a -2 rather than -4.

                  Not keen on taking out Martinez or Watkins for 1 gameweek. Hopefully Peacock Farrel plays one more game

                  Anything else that needs attention?

                  Belleri / Chilwell / Justin
                  Mane / Fernandes / Ziyech / Soucek

                  Thoughts on this FH XI?

                    Looks pretty good, but surely FH worth a lot more in DGWs season

                    As above. Don't think you'll gain much in using it this week.

                    Strong for the gw. I would go with Chelsea's James over PVA personally.

                  Which make a better couple?

                  Walker & Bamford
                  or
                  Dias & Abraham
