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
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Them? How many do you have?

      1. BobB
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Three

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 20 days ago

          Oof. That’s a lot of transfers.

          1. BobB
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            10 months, 20 days ago

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

            1. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              10 months, 20 days ago

              Where?

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                10 months, 20 days ago

                In his basement

    2. Jo Melon
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 20 days ago

      I want to keep Grealish and Martinez

      1. BobB
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

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

    3. Do I Not Like Orange
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

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

      1. Lord Flashheart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        same here

      2. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        that must be alot of TV no?

        1. Do I Not Like Orange
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 20 days ago

          Na, would sell for 7.5.

    4. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Indeed. One of reasons why I FH this week

      1. Zim0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

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

    5. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      I still think they concede in every game. Martinez out

    6. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

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

  2. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    FanTeam transfers:

    Cancelo > Fofana
    Watkins > ??

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

    1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      B

  3. GOATMEAT
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 20 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
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

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

      1. JabariParkersEyelid
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 20 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.

  4. Jam0sh
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Cancelo, stick or twist?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

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

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Sell

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Sell. He won’t play.

    4. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 20 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 still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Twist

    6. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

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

    7. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Cheers all

    8. linkafu
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Stick

  5. Jo Melon
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Is Kane to Jesus worth a hit?

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 20 days ago

      No.

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Never

    3. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      No way Jose

    4. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Against Arsenal? 😆

    5. si
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

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

  6. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 20 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 Year
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Yeah why not. He's getting chances.

    2. cigan
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 20 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
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 20 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
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 20 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. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 20 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.

    3. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 20 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
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 20 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
          10 months, 20 days ago

          Exactly this. Best of luck

        2. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 20 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.

  7. The Mantis
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 20 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
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 20 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
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 20 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
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 20 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
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 20 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
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 20 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
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 20 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!

  8. BobB
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 20 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.

  9. ZeBestee
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

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

    1. Mahjongking
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Actually vs manutd what are u worrying about?
      Jus gonfor it

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        His fixtures are not what would cause the headache.

        1. ZeBestee
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 20 days ago

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

    2. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Worth it imo

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Worth it

    4. ZeBestee
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      thanks all

  10. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 20 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
      10 months, 20 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
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      No News yet.....

  11. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 20 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 still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Sounds like a very decent plan

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Thanks Nabil 🙂

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

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

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        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

  12. linkafu
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    A/ Is Werner to Jesus worth a hit?

    B/ Is Son to Mahrez worth a hit?

    1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Maybe
      Nope

    2. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 20 days ago

      A. No
      B. No

    3. The Point About It Is
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      No
      Maybe - but only for a punt

    4. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Probably 2 no's to be honest.

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

      1. Indpush
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Sometimes you aren't honest about your player/transfer suggestions?

  13. Holmes
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Martinez, Cancelo, Kilman, Targett, Grealish, Brewster. Exciting time!

    1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Free hit like me. Join the fun

      1. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Good luck

        I will save FT and consider this as a BGW where playing 6-7 players is fine 😛

        1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 20 days ago

          Yeah we can pretend sometimes lol

          Best of luck!

    2. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      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)

  14. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 20 days ago

    Who is a better punt to have this week, mount or Abraham?

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Depends on Pulisic's fitness, imo

      Mount is safer

      1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Indeed, but really think both will start

    2. turd ferguson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Tammy a better punt.

      1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi

      looks like i will just hold and bench my Villa and Newcastle guys, thoughts?

      McCarthy
      Dias Chilwell Coufal
      Soucek Sterling KDB Grealish
      Vardy Bamford DCL

      Forster Grealish Targett Lewis

      Chances of Sterling starting?

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        sorry grealish in twice, typo, its Ziyech

        1. cigan
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 20 days ago

          very good, hold

      2. cigan
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Higher than Grealish for sure!

      3. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Gtg, could play 10 if Dias no show though

      4. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

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

    • King Kohli

      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

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Prefer Chilwell and James. (Chilwell Zouma owner)

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 20 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.

      3. thegaffer82
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

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

        Chilwell or James much better due to baps & attacking returns

      4. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        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

    • Klaren
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      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".

        10 months, 20 days ago

        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.)

      Will neco williams start ?

      1. cigan
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        wait for Trent news

        1. cigan
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 20 days ago

          I'd say yes tho

    • NOMONEY
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      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!

      1. cigan
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Yeh I'll probably just get Walker

    • Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      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.

      1. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        The cool kids have both.

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        So get Mahrez

        1. Konstaapeli
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 20 days ago

          Could be wise but don't want to lose Son while taking a hit.

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            10 months, 20 days ago

            Yeah it’s not worth a hit.

    • skooldaze
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Have a Villa keeper and no playing back up.

      Do we think there will be any double GW's ahead as otherwise, I'll leave it.

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        villa will have a couple of dgws most likely.

      2. skooldaze
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Sorry meant for this year before the WC comes in

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 20 days ago

          Too many games already. So unlikely.

      3. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        Not with the xmas schedule. Will most likely happen in Jan before Champions League restart.

    • MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Lads Watkins out for a hit or not worth it
      Also have sterling no idea if he's going to start

      1. Klaren
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

        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.

    • The Frenchie
      • 5 Years

      Anything else that needs attention?

      Any siggestions for the below? Currently thinking maybe Watkins & Mane > KDB & Abraham (wildcard next week)

      McCarthy
      Belleri / Chilwell / Justin

      Thoughts on this FH XI?

      Johnstone
      Chilwell PVA Justin
      KDB(c) Mahrez Bruno Jota
      Jesus Werner DCL

      Button N.Williams Fodder Fodder

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years

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

      2. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

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

      3. ZeBestee
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 20 days ago

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

    • cigan
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 20 days ago

      Which make a better couple?

      Walker & Bamford
      or
      Dias & Abraham
