Merry Christmas from Fantasy Football Scout

Christmas Day is finally upon us, although perhaps not in the form many of us expected.

In years gone by, I have written these Christmas messages with references to Fantasy Premier League managers pulling themselves away from FPL content to spend more time with their family and friends.

But it would be naive of me to assume all of you have the opportunity to do so today.

2020 has been a generation-defining year for the people of the United Kingdom and the wider world. The global pandemic has affected all of us in different ways with subtle, often unquantifiable, nuances.

The one feeling that unites us this Christmas is heartache, as we all strive to adapt to life in an ever-changing world.

Football has not gone unscathed, as we all know. Fantasy managers can consider themselves lucky to have the sport in our lives still, but it has been forced to endure most of the year without the presence of its most important component: the fans.

And, of course, due to recent changes, many of us are now unable to see our nearest and dearest on the most important day of the year.

So, to anyone who has not been able to enjoy a sorely-needed Christmas celebration with family and friends, I say this: We feel your pain. You are not alone in this fight.

I know these crumbs of comfort cannot replace the things many of you have lost this year, especially on Christmas Day. There is only so much Fantasy Football Scout can do to battle the ongoing crisis but, if providing a healthy distraction from all the doom and gloom makes a difference in your lives, then I will be very proud.

To business, then.

As you know, the Gameweek 15 deadline looms large on Boxing Day morning, which is why the full array of Fantasy content is already up on the site.

Make sure you head to the Complete Guide to Gameweek 15 tab at the top of the page to find everything you need.

It is not long until the first Wildcard deadline passes – and don’t forget to set your plans in place for Blank Gameweek 18, Double Gameweek 19 and your chip strategy.

That just leaves me to pass on my gratitude to some key individuals.

Once again, deputy editor Neale Rigg has been an invaluable resource. You are all probably tired of my comparing him to N’Golo Kanté, but until we get another Premier League player renowned for doing the dirty work and mopping up in midfield as well as the Chelsea man, you will all have to make do!

Commercial director Chris James and community manager Geoff Dance continue to help the site develop behind the scenes and push forward to bright new things in 2021.

Head of content, Paul McKinnon, Will Timbers (or TopMarx) and Ted (Rotation) are also key members of fulfilling a number of key Fantasy Football Scout responsibilities – who all have my thanks too.

We have also enjoyed the help of Sam Bonfield and Ian Archer in developing our presence on social media. The pair have taken our Twitter and Instagram accounts to new heights with their vision and execution in 2020.

Video manager Andy Mears has had the same effect on our YouTube content during his first full campaign at Fantasy Football Scout.

We should also thank Gianni Butticè for spearheading our Matchday Live content, with the help of Seb, Toby and Lee. And we cannot forget host of the Scoutcast and captaincy videos: the long-serving Joe Lepper.

The editorial output has grown this season too. Andy, Az, Holly, Luke, Sam, Simon, Tom, Pranil and Utkarsh have all continued to provide excellent Pro Pundits articles – and we are delighted to have added Fábio Borges, Darren Wiles and the great Mark Sutherns to that list in 2020/21.

David Wardale, Jan Sienkiewicz, Colm Hayes and Marc Jobling all deserve praise for ticking key editorial boxes while Karam Tayser has done a great job in helping us reach new audiences this year with his translation of our content into Arabic.

And, of course, I would like to express gratitude to the moderators, who all perform the thankless task of managing our community at ground level every day.

The list of people contributing to the site behind the scenes continues to grow. To these individuals, you know who are you and you have my thanks.

I hope you all have as Merry a Christmas as the current restrictions allow. Good luck in Gameweek 15!

    BB or TC in 19 if I had 10 DGWers + Martinez,Dias,Grealish,DCL,Kane?
    Plus one transfer and 1.1m to change any of those to a DGWer.

    1. n14mul

      As it had been mentioned bb 100% if your playing wc. There are plenty of decent budget options which can do well over dgw19

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        i have no WC.
        This where I will be after using FT's from 16-18.

    2. g40steve

      BB, everyone will C Salah so the TC will have an additional set of points.
      BBers will have the option of upto 4 additional players playing twice, or the likes of Son & Kane etc thrown in.

      similar to my post just now below

      leaning towards BB but hard to predict points output
      TC (Salah) let's go with 16 points in 2 games x3 = 48 points
      TC gain 32 points but negated somewhat as many will captain him on BB anyway

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        This is true. I really want to shift that BB now before the second WC as well.

      2. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        Either way it's points in the bank.

        You pay a premium for certainty.

      3. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        TC gain is just 16 points.

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      If you can BB effectively in 19, do it.

    5. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Who'd be on your bench if you TC? I'm assuming you'd play Kane Dias and bench some cheap DGW'ers?

      It's basically Salah Vs that Bench.

      1. Lucky Z
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        Why you need DGW players on bench if you play TC? I will bench fodders like Brewster etc who will play in BGW.

    Morning,

    No doubt alot of team will have Bruno in over the festive period, anyone slightly concerned about resting or even burnout with their schedule?

    They arguably have the most congested fixture list with 2 or 3 days rest between games.

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      I’ve took a risk in order to raise funds by shipping him for Rashford.

      1. n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        Could work out well

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Not worth selling anyway

      1. n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        I'm wc1 in 16 and want him in from dgw 19 but considering getting in son until then. Trying to weigh up if Bruno maybe rested

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 18 days ago

          Nothing wrong with Son C against Fulham and Leeds

    3. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Everyone will be at risk. Just keep your best players and hope they score well when they do play.

    4. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      United is too dependent on Bruno, I'd say if Ole really needed to mange his minutes, it'll be in the cup competitions or 70 mins in each of the PL games.

      1. Lucky Z
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        This.

  3. Houldsworth Hatter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Apologies for repost. Bottomed.

    What are those who have no free hit chip doing in 18 and 19?

    1. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      I have fh available and won't be using in 18, not enough exciting games

      1. Houldsworth Hatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        I’ve used mine so using frees to get 7 or 8 in but then a hit or two needed for 19 and possibly triple captain.

        1. n14mul
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 18 days ago

          Sounds like a plan, I don't think there will be many teams with full 15 or 11 in dgw19. Ideal is a mix of a few sgw players

          1. Houldsworth Hatter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 18 days ago

            Cheers

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Probably keeping their well balanced team for both 18 and 19 and outscoring us overthinkers

  4. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Each to their own, but since I currently own just 5 players for gw18 and 11 dgw players for 19, is it an easy decision to FH18 / BB19?
    Don't own Spurs either as it stands

    Could of course TC Salah in gw19
    I feel like it's easier to predict rotations to the big players now when there's no champions league on to complicate things.
    On the flip side, wildcard gw25 / BB26 seems a popular alternative.

    Current OR 90k

    Thanks

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Thats my plan.
      Will be WCing in 25 with the BB used so I can keep cheap players benched around the double week.
      Will try to make bench players non 29 blankers if possible.
      TC in wahat ever dgw player has the best double.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        seems logical to me

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      You could go either way. I only have 3 for gw18 so definitely using FH.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        feels like the deciding factor could be the form of City and/or Spurs
        I don't see the Villa game being high scoring
        in fact a FH18 without any spurs could be ultra maverick!

    3. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      I'm just wondering if the LIV - MUN game is too "hard' for a TC.

      Still leaning towards BB as my strategy has been to build a team of 13 DGW players (no GK).

      TC is easy to activate, no planning required.

  5. waltzingmatildas

    A) TAA and adams

    Did Bruce touch on the Schar/Manquillo news? Apparently they're out after positive tests. While that is in itself no doubt distressing for the club, having been so heavily affected by COVID, does it give Pep more impetus to start Kun Kun?

    Do we think Dias is starting vs Newcastle after he played 90mins in cup?

    Chilwell ->
    A) Dias
    B) Stones

    1. The Knights Template

      Matip

        Need gw18 players. Im playing FH 19. Would consider it otherwise

        1. Sanchit
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 18 days ago

          Dias more nailed than Stones. If you want to hold the defender till 18 and beyond, definitely Dias irrespective of his chances starting this week

    2. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah I think Dias plays

    “The teams set to feature in GW29 are still yet to be confirmed, but it is certain that the number of teams will be less than the number of teams featuring in GW18”

    This true?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      It's in inverted commas so it must be.

    2. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Usually ends up being only 4 or 5 matches. So it's definitely not going to be more than 18.

  10. diesel001
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 18 days ago

    'Good' single DGW19 fixtures are interesting:

    Ars: NEW
    Mci: CRY
    Tot: shu
    Wol: WBA

    1. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Newcastle have a good fixture you mean?

      1. karsworde
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        Definitely gotta bring Wilson in that week

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Spurs only one I like there.

    3. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      3 Newcastle it is...

    4. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Kane vs KDB vs another DGW player the interesting choice. Kane could haul vs shu.

    5. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Ars: NEW shouldn't be anywhere near this list

  11. Pepeye
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Stones nailed on tomorrow. Dias rarely misses any match KDB & Sterling bankers Gundoghan deffo

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      And the week after etc etc?

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      Yes I don't see the need to FH, I'm happy with 7 DGW's, Dias, Dier, Son and Kane. Only question is should I TC Salah ?

      1. bitm2007

      2. Sanchit

        So you have just these 4 for 18?

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 18 days ago

          Those 4 and KDB, DCL, Lamtpey and one other.

  12. The VAR Team
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 18 days ago

    Still haven't made up my mind on whether to free hit in 18. Should I do it and aim for a BB team in 19 with no WC to play? (Blank gamweekers in brackets)

    (Martinez)/ 4.0
    Robbo Chilwell* Coufal Ayling Ferguson*
    Salah Bruno (Zaha) (Grealish) (Bissouma)
    (Kane) (DCL) Bamford

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 18 days ago

      I'd say don't just focus on 18/19.
      What I see here is.. you'll anyway want to get rid of Chilwell (injury), Grealish and Zaha( fixtures ).
      Who do you think are the best replacements? Either get 3 DGW or 3 BGW players based on who you can afford and who you like.

      1. The VAR Team
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 18 days ago

        good point cheers! I'm thinking about Chilwell and Zaha to TAA and Raphina for a hit. They've got good fixtures. Then aim for a BB in 19

          Thanks! That defs seems the most sensible.

          I just think city will score more against Newcastle than Liverpool will against West Brom.

          So tempted by aguero but my nuts probably won’t allow it.

      Current squad:

      McCarthy
      Cancelo Coufal Targett
      Salah(C) KDB(VC) Bruno Son
      Bamford Adams Watkins

      Forster; Chilwell Soucek N.Williams

      Have already used my FT. Obviously my issue is that if Cancelo is rested, it’s unlikely Chilwell or Neco play, resulting in a big 0. Is it worth taking a -4 to remedy this? Or just cross my fingers that Cancelo plays?

        Sounds obvious but you'd need your replacement defender to return 4 just to break even. Is there anyone odds on to do that within price range? I'd maybe do it for Robbo but no-one else.

        1. boroie
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 18 days ago

          Exactly my thoughts. Can’t afford Robbo so thinking of just crossing my fingers and hoping Cancelo plays.

          Wish we knew how long Chilwell was out for as if he was out long term I could probably justify a -4 for long term gains.

      Thoughts?
      Right so I think I’ve decided to go with FH18 & BB19

      FH GW18
      Ederson
      Gabriel / Dier / Dias
      Auba / KDB / Son / Podence
      DCL / Kane / Wilson

      BB GW19. 11 double gameweek players
      McCarthy*
      Coufal* / Dier / Taylor*
      Salah* / KDB / Bruno* / Son / Soucek*
      Bamford* / DCL

      Bench: Johnstone* , Che Adams*, Alioski*, Balbuena*

        I don't think it's gonna stop him from playing.

          It’s more of a reason for him to get out and play!

            Or take paternity leave so he can stay at home and help out.

              Certainly something that can happen. Can't really say it will 100% though.

        Surely worth it if Vlad can spend time with bub. Time to upgrade Ferguson.

      Is Ethan Ampadu good option for 18 gw?

        Possibly

      Are there no Fantasy Scout cups now? What a shame.

      Happy Cristmas everyone. No Spurs player in my team this season and now I am thinking about not bringing in Kane/Son for just Fulham and Leeds. Would cost me -8 and KdB.

      A) crazy, I have lost it completely.
      B) brave, don’t let fear run your team.

      Can Arsenal get in Thomas Tuchel please? I'm sure he's keen on navigation a relegation battle

        "Navigation a relegation"

        Rapping?

    13. Flynny

      If coufal doesn't play cos of new baby, I'll only have 2 playing defenders

      (Also got James and lamptey)

      Would you take a hit for lamptey to balbuena - 4?

      I'm likely to want to make this transfer in a week or 2 in any case for my gw19 bench boost ...so it's just bringing forward a planned transfer

      (Would probably have to do it for a hit in gw19 otherwise)

      Thanks

          West ham don't play till Sunday. I really don't know if he is a doubt or not....

      Stones & Dias City No 1 partnership but Dias hasn't had a rest yet
      So slight worry

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        I need to get one of them in. Diaz is due a rest i feel. So going Stones instead.

        1. Sanchit
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 18 days ago

          How long do you want to hold your city Def? Probably till 22?
          Then why make your decision just based on who starts this gameweek

          1. Weeb Kakashi
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 18 days ago

            Because i need him to start this week. Simple

      2. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 18 days ago

        This week yes. But Dias is definitely more nailed on in general.
