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.

    Any Sheffield fans think Burke will get another start? Or benched?

  2. OneDennisBergkamp

    Grealish was 7.1m when I got him, now 7.7m, no way he leaves my team with the fixtures ahead, even if he does have to sit on the bench for 1 gameweek (they may even be played still).

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      yup gotta keep.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Exactly the same position and agree fully

    3. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Yep just benching him, great value

    4. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Me too. Think I will do nothing a ride out the gw.

      1. hustler7
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Top of the ticker, mad to transfer out for 1GW.

    5. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      You get 7.4 by selling him.
      Probably buy him back at 7.6.

      .2 lost on team value
      Vs
      A chance to get 10 points

      1. Maddamotha
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        THIZZZZZZ why are people so obsessed with money and the value of a player. It's about POINTS

      2. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        also 1FT lost, which some look at as being worth 4pts, so its a very big gamble for 1GW i say

        1. OneDennisBergkamp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          infact 2FTs lost to bring him back again

  3. _Ninja_
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    A or B?

    A Podence -> Mahrez FT
    B Robbo/Podence -> Dallas/KDB - 4

    Martinez
    Chilwell Zouma Robbo
    Bruno Son Grealish Jota
    DCL Vardy Bamford

    Forster Podence Lamptey Mitchell

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      If Robbo out then B

      1. cigan
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Robbo should be ok

    2. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      B

  4. beetlejuice
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Anyone considering WC or FreeHit having Martinez, Grealish, Mitchell, Cancelo and no other City players?
    I have 9 out of 10 (no Kane only) most owned players and kinda lost here.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      WC if you still have, Free Hit is a waste

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Pretty much this. You can get a team full of DGW players with FH later so no point using it to patch couple of holes this wweek.

    2. JollyGoodYellows
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      I'm considering it with Konsa, Grealish, Mitchell, Holding, no city and no Pool.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      I think I am - will come off for me in terms of points gain if City put Fulham to the sword with Jesus, Mahrez and KDB in the points

      1. NateDogsCats
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Problem is what if Mahrez and Jesus are benched (which is entirely possible)? Heck I'm not even convinced KDB is guaranteed every week like before after reading that report that he asked to be rotated due to fatigue

      2. Vlad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        similar situation but I have sterling.. i wont wc.. I'm thinking of dropping him to mahrez and upgrading bissouma to jota so i compensate for grealish absence

      3. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I have good cover in Dallas and Soucek, but still FH

    4. BEEZUS
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Kane to Brewster, Reed to kdB for a -4?

      Will bench Grealish and have Cancelo.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Not something that sounds amazing

      2. Babit1967
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        No way

    5. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Son/Grealish > KDB/Mahrez (-4)? Not losing any significant value in Grealish, and would likely get him back in GW13.

      1. OptimusBlack
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Get Both YOLO :O

      2. Konstaapeli
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        You know Son has Arsenal next, right?

        1. Do I Not Like Orange
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          I know Arsenal are crap, but fully expect that match to be a cagey affair like the Chelsea game. I will captain KDB, and Son is my only way of getting him.

      3. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Plenty of upside, but shame to lose Son against dreadful Arsenal

      4. FPL_Motty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Losing grealish for Mahrez doesnt seem right. Sure grealish misses this week and mahrez probably plays, but easily it will be the other way around the next week with a mahrez benching and then grealish is back. Plus grealish will then have a double double up his sleeve. Not against Son>kdb however but if youre upgrading both seems like you must have funds to just do son > kdb

        1. Do I Not Like Orange
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Am intending to do Mahrez > Jota next GW to give me Pool cover for Fulham, then back to Grealish in 13. I don't fancy Villa away to Wolves, and will already have Watkins & Martinez for it.

    6. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Best move here?

      A. Martinez > Mendy (forget about the Villa dgw)
      B. Steer > Johnstone/Meslier/Mccarthy

      Keen to take a hit for a playing gk as it frees up a Villa spot for me to get Grealish later.

      Martinez Steer
      Chilwell Konsa Coufal Kilman Mitchell
      KDB Bruno Son Jota Anguissa
      Vardy DCL Bamford

      0 FT 1.9 Itb.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Then lose Steer

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        B) McCarthy

        1. King Kohli
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Feel that Johnstone rotates best with Martinez but Meslier plays for a better team

      3. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        a

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

        I'm considering B with McCarthy.

        Good win for Kohli today, btw!

    7. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Benching Grealish and playing Soucek is perfectly viable right?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Sho nuff

      2. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Absolutely, that's the whole point of having Soucek as a 5th mid

      3. Soto Ayam
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah, West ham usually do well against man utd

      4. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Lovely option to have exactly why Soucek is such a valuable 8th attacker

      5. OptimusBlack
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Yes

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Thanks all x

      6. FPL_Motty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Yep. Ive been playing soucek last 3-4 gws, great cover for all sorts of issues and always in the box

    8. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      No hits so far this year but looks like it will be maybe one this week and definitely one week next now.
      Do I deserve it for my good behaviour so far?

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Sure. I'll grant you -12 buddy

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Treat yo'self

      3. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks boys

      4. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Nope, since your team isn't linked, and we can't verify that 😉

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Oops. Forgot it was still on Fire In The Blood collectors set

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Fixed now

      5. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        As always, depends on the hit

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Next week's plan was:
          A. DCL & Son to Mo and Adams or Welbz; or
          B. Kane and Son to Mo and anybody mid-price

          for free.

          Now need Bailey Peacock to play again and for Cancelo to play or Brewster to do something this week for that to work.

    9. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      10 players it is. Martinez i keep u.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Not considering McCarthy?

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          I am but the dgws are changing my mind. Plus Burnley westbrom coming up too. I can't decide

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            I can sell Martinez for 4.6, current value is 4.8 so only need to find 0.2 (maybe 0.1) to get him back

            1. Zim0
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              Yeah but u have FT. Im already using mine to do Cancelo to James. If it was free I'd do it too.

              1. KAPTAIN KANE
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 6 days ago

                I see, in that case makes complete sense

          2. Trophé Mourinho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Oh when have the doubles been confirmed for?

            1. Zim0
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              They haven't. But now there will be 2 so I'm probably keeping

              1. Trophé Mourinho
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 6 days ago

                Ah ok what if they are like gw34 and gw37? You’d keep until then? May as well ship in a load of Man U as they have a double at some point as well 😀

                1. Zim0
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 6 days ago

                  Its not just that. The upcoming few fixtures for Martinez are the best for clean sheets. If i get someone like mccarthy and he doesn't keep clean sheet i lose 2 points in the hit so in the end not worth it. Even if it works out I'll only be 2 or 3 points better off.

                  1. Trophé Mourinho
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year
                    3 months, 6 days ago

                    Yea fair enuf I’m only messing 😛

      2. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Hmmm

      3. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 6 days ago

        It's a completely legitimate option, yet people treat it with horror for some reason. Maybe because it makes you look like you hadn't planned ahead, but clearly others are in the same boat, and taking hits can just make the problem worse.

    10. Union_Jacks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Team currently is:

      McCarthy
      Chilwell - Justin - KWP
      Bruno - Son - JRod - Pereira
      Vardy - Werner - DCL

      Peacock-Farrell, Dallas, Mitchell, Grealish

      I’m thinking of doing JRod, Vardy > KDB, Bamford with 2FTs. I see it as the only viable way of getting KDB in this week. Any other suggestions?

      1. Pegboy
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I'd rather lose Werner than Vardy.

      2. Babit1967
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I like it, take it u don’t have spare change for Cavani instead of Bamford?

    11. Avo24
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      what is your plan for Martinez?
      switch to 4.5 GK like Leeds GK or without GK for GW 11?
      for Grealish I think 100% I will keep him

      1. JabariParkersEyelid
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Got Mendy, keeping for the rest of the season probably.

      2. Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I wanted to keep Martinez but I need 0.1 to afford Sterling to KDB. Sterling seems to be out of favor so it has to be done. Meslier in.

    12. OptimusBlack
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Best Defender to get within 5.8 M
      For long term if u have
      Lamptey - Reguilón - Chilwell - Semedo & Dunne
      *Semedo out for him

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        James?

      2. BeWater
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Reece James if you fancy the double up.

        • jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Dias

        • Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Quite an expensive defence, so I'd save the cash and go for Lewis (if you can bench him this week) or Dallas.

      3. dshv
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Soucek to JWP for (-4) ??

        1. antis0cial
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          no

        2. BeWater
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Just play Soucek.

          • jomikijiq
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            no

          • Rhodes your boat
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            No, play soucek

          • Pegboy
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            No

          • FPL_Motty
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 6 days ago

            what on earth

          • Puntillimon
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Nope

        3. Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Mendy (Forster)
          Chilwell Lamptey Coufal (Lewis Mitchell)
          Salah Son Jota Foden (Anguissa)
          Vardy Kane DCL

          1FT £0.5m

          Foden out feels like the priority. I'd like KDB, but the fact he's only scored one goal all season means I'm tempted to just let him be this week.

          a) Save
          b) Foden + Kane > KDB (c) + Adams (-4)
          c) Mitchell > Dallas (improves bench and after this week Leeds have a nice run of fixtures)
          d) Anything else?

                None of the expensive defenders tempt me particularly so having Chilwell plus 4 rotating £4.5m options feels a better strategy. I really want to avoid having any non-playing options over xmas/covid period.

            Foster of Watford?
            Looks bad - Burke to a nailed 4.5?

            • 10 Years

            What are you considering? Personally, I'd probably save the FT or maybe switch Martinez to Meslier.

              Thanks. Yeah I will have to go without any city players. Fulham looked better against Leicester so maybe they will do okay against city.

            Taking him out for a -2 doesn't look so bad when you put it like that.

          Lads WATKINS to Wellbeck ?

            Christ that front line, and you want to add welbeck lol?
            How about Adams?
            No offence but there’s 9 team drafts with a better front line

            1. Africa United

              Ilol know but I'm chasing the first OR and need some differential
              Welbz has nice fixtures and Vardy will go to Bamford/Watkins later

              It's just sterling no show will make it worse if only I'm sure he plays but pep roulette is savage

                You say that Pep roulette is savage but you've got 3 city players in your team...

                You can't lose if you don't play. I'm not touching city players personally.

          I plan to keep the free transfer, have 2 free transfers for the 12th gameweek and make a mini wild card (2-3 transfers). I'd love to finally see Salah on my team.

          McCarthy, Nyland
          chilwell, Konsa, Taylor, Justin, Tierney
          KDB, Son, Bruno, Jota, Bissouma
          Kane, DCL, Bamford
          (0.5M in the bank)

          Any ideas? Best defenders from 12gw? Maybe DCL to Antonio?

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Dallas
            Antonio if he looks sharp against Utd

        9. jomikijiq

          Does that look sensible?

          2 FT, 1.0 itb

          Martinez
          Chilwell, Dias, Cancelo, Webster
          KDB, Fernandes, Ziyech, Riedewald
          Vardy, DCL

          Forster, Kilman, Grealish, Watkins

          GW11
          Cancelo, Riedewald -> N. Williams, Jota

          GW12
          Ziyech, Vardy -> Salah, Brewster

          1.7 left

            Why are you getting n.williams? Trent back soon, and potentially he will block a future liverpool slot. If its just for dead bench fodder pick another random 3.9m def.

            Otherwise look like sound plans

        10. Puntillimon
          • 5 Years

          I think I’ll decide on Martinez on sat itself. Wait for news. No point pondering over it now until more news are out

          Imagine FHing with KDB mahrez and Jesus vs Fulham, triple up Che vs Leeds, Bruno Jota..

          Definitely doing it.

          1. Jafalad

            Tripling up v Leeds. Good luck with that.

            And then jota, mahrez, Jesus get rotated, Leeds do a masterclass and your original team score 10 more points than your FH team..

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

              We'll see. At least I'm not afraid to try it, plus keeping my 3 villa and getting my Kane and Son back vs palace.

                Effed up my DGWs, free hits at the fag end of last year. Absolutely tanked my OR.

        12. built_this_city

          hi lords and ladies, please can i get some advice -

          Mendy, Button
          Dias, Justin, Mitchell, Taylor, Konsa
          KDB, Rodriguez, Son, Fernandes, Mendy
          Kane, DCL, Bamford
          0.1 in the bank.

          I was all set to do Rodriguez to Grealish but as the game is off - i think i will save the FT.

          Good idea?

            Wait till we know when the game is rescheduled. May still be in the same gwk.

          Will you do rashford > Mahrez(C) for a hit ?

          1. built_this_city
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            nah, chasing last weeks points

          2. FPL_Motty
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Why would it be for a hit. When rashford is 9.5 and mahrez is 8.3. If for no hit then maybe - dont rate mahrez though. But for a hit, no - makes no sense

        14. DA Minnion

          Fulham have had a bit more about them in the last two. City may not roll over them that easy.

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Even Fulham with their tails up are exactly the kind of team that City could batter in their sleep

          2. Trophé Mourinho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Never under estimate someone or something that has nothing to lose.
            A team like Fulham really couldn’t do much worse then they have been, they either maintain their level or get better.
            I don’t like betting against whipping boys with the armband (sometimes I do, but not always, it’s gone wrong many times in my experience)

          3. FPL_Motty
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 6 days ago

            This is true, Fulham have looked better. But I dont think the matchup favours them with City. Fulham did well against Leicester because Leicester couldnt penetrate through the middle, maddison is no KDB, and had incredibly poor full backs so there was no width. Fulham were then also quite good on the ball and managed to play out from the back and into good positions. Was very impressive to be honest, but City are just not the team for them I dont think. City have fantastic full backs with proper width, and then they have KDB to open it up through the middle. And then they will never get outplayed on the ball by Fulham so its going to need to be some GK heroics to save Fulham really.

          How does this 11 look for this week

          Martinez
          Bellerin Cancelo Justin Taylor
          Bruno Son KdB Barnes
          DCL Werner

          Ayling, Brewster on the bench

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Unlikely to be XI is the problem

            1. BEEZUS
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              Cancelo the big question mark - Ayling can cover for him. Riding the wave with Martinez. Saves me from a FH or a WC

          2. PascalCygan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Very nice. Have you got a FT to sort Martinez? I'm considering a -4 to upgrade Steer to sort my Martinez issue.

            1. BEEZUS
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              Unfortunately not - that team above is with a -4 as I don't currently have KdB atm. Risky but dont want to go into this GW with no attacking City cover so think the -4 is worth it

              1. PascalCygan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 6 days ago

                Yes, I'm thinking the same. -4 on the keeper and either Grealish to Mahrez or Salah to KdB

        16. Puntillimon
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Best transfer for cancelo —> ?

          Other 4 are cresswell chilwell coufal Mitchell

          I have 3 Chelsea so James not an option

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Dallas

        17. true_Jerry
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          On a Wildcard, would you rather

          Mendy/Robbo/Jota or Chillwell/Dias/Mahrez

          both would have James so 2nd one would be Chelsea def double up

        18. built_this_city
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Hope James Rodriguez keeps his current price until Saturday
