Captain Sensible

The best FPL players to own, sign or captain for Gameweek 16

Liverpool, Leeds and Burnley are the key teams for the Gameweek 16 Scout Picks.

We have included a double-up from each of these clubs as they prepare to face Newcastle, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United between now and Thursday.

This team was chosen by Scout Squad pundits David, Neale, Tom and Andy – and includes a longer-than-usual captaincy segment considering the lack of turnaround time for one of Jan’s excellent Captain Sensible articles.

We line-up in the 4-3-3 formation, coming in £82.0m, £1.0m inside our budget of £83.0m.

Goalkeeper

Alex McCarthy (£4.7m) remains one of the best value assets in FPL this season, offering 13.2 points per million spent, third among goalkeepers. Fresh from a 0-0 draw with Fulham, Southampton host a West Ham side who, aside from Tomas Soucek, spent large parts of Sunday afternoon offering little going forward.

Defenders

Ahead of travelling to Newcastle, Andrew Robertson (£7.3m) is joint-top for chances created among defenders over the last four matches. Meanwhile, the Magpies have failed to score in each of their last two meetings with top-six opposition this season.

João Cancelo (£5.6m) looks likely to get another start for Manchester City as they face Everton at Goodison Park. Kyle Walker remains sidelined following a positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test while Guardiola hailed Cancelo’s “regeneration and physicality” as “incredible” in his pre-match press conference. Manchester City’s defensive capabilities continue to inspire confidence. Ahead of meeting an Everton side still without Richarlison and James Rodríguez, the Citizens have conceded just one goal since Gameweek 10.

Stuart Dallas (£4.7m) is another rather locked-in defender due to absences elsewhere in his team. Leeds are still without Liam Cooper (abdomen), Robin Koch (knee) and Diego Llorente (muscle), leaving Marcelo Bielsa no choice but to keep the Northern Ireland international at right-back. While West Bromwich Albion stifled Liverpool at Anfield, we expect them to come out of the traps a little more against Leeds, leaving more spaces for exploitation than we saw on Sunday. That should benefit Dallas, who sits behind only three defenders for attempts on goal in the last four matches.

The inclusion of Charlie Taylor (£4.5m) in the Gameweek 16 Scout Picks is a relatively routine one. Burnley have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three meetings with a bottom-eight Premier League side. Meanwhile, winless basement boys Sheffield United have the worst goals per game ratio in the division after 15 Gameweeks (0.5).

Midfielders

Salah building up massive power in top 10k after Gameweek 14 haul

Despite a reputation for only delivering at Anfield, Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) has registered either a goal, assist or both in each of his last six away matches. The Gameweek 2 win at Chelsea was the last time the Egyptian blanked on the road for Liverpool, averaging 9.8 points in that time. In fact, 62 of Salah’s 120 points this season (51.7%) have come away from Anfield. So facing a Newcastle outfit with one clean sheet since Gameweek 2 looks very favourable indeed.

Fresh from another away-day double-digit haul, Bruno Fernandes (£11.1m) retains his Scout Picks place despite the short turnaround. The Portuguese international is too pivotal to Manchester United’s fortunes for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to rest him for a big clash with Wolves and his posted a double-figure score in two of his last three home matches.

Jack Grealish (£7.8m) was desperately unfortunate not to get some assists against Crystal Palace as Aston Villa managed to roll the Eagles over despite the man-disadvantage. Seeing Chelsea crumble under an out-of-form Arsenal attack suggests Grealish can continue his decent form even at Stamford Bridge, where Frank Lampard will almost certainly have to break up the back-four that has provided so much defensive stability this season.

Forwards

We expect an improved Fulham defence to park the bus at Spurs on Thursday night, but we also fancy Harry Kane (£11.0m) to make a breakthrough. He has scored or assisted in all six of Spurs’ meetings with bottom-eight sides this season. Crucially, Kane found the net in each of his last two at home against such opposition (Brighton and Arsenal).

As already mentioned, West Bromwich Albion are a lot more likely to venture forth at home against Leeds than they did at Anfield, opening up space for Patrick Bamford (£6.5m) to exploit. The Leeds forward has been excellent away from home this season, netting seven times on the road since promotion.

Chris Wood (£6.2m) is top of the league for expected goals (non-penalty) over the last four matches. That bodes well ahead of facing Sheffield United side that is yet to keep a clean sheet in 2020/21.

Substitutes

  • Sam Johnstone (£4.5m)
  • Serge Aurier (£5.2m)
  • Anwar El Ghazi (£5.7m)
  • Raphinha (£5.4m)

    1. cigan
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Out of these, B

      Btw I'd be wary of Curtis Jones with Milner, Keita, Chamberlain, Shaqiri all back and Thiago return imminent. I mean, he'll play but deffo not every game

  4. Mattymo23
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Thoughts on combo for WC Team

    A) Wood + Soucek + Lowton

    B) Adams + Raphina + O'Shea

    If I did A might do Wood to Adams for DGW19

  5. Pedram

      Hopefully

    2. Sco
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Started on the 26th last year and was benched on the 28th so I'm doubtful especially given his injury record this season.

  8. Tsparkes10
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Firmino, Adams to Vardy, Antonio could be lovely for the dgw

    1. tractorjess
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Also planning Antonio for the DGW, but possibly too risky to get him yet.

      Mitchell -> Alioski worth a -4?
      Seems like a GW where you need a playing bench 😀
      Would probably play Alioski and bench Welbeck, Balbuena and Brewster.

            I like A, but is there another defender you could bench to field Grealish?

          Got my self some serious benching headache when planning for BB19. Who to bench and who to cap?

          McCarthy
          Zouma, Dallas, Cresswell
          Salah(C), Bruno, Son, Soucek
          DCL, Bamford, Vardy
          (Martinez, Raphinha, Dias, Coufal)

              coufal?

          2. Phlajo
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Bench Martinez, Dallas, Coufal and Soucek.

            Cap Salah

          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          So here’s my final question for this GW. Want to plan for DGW by getting Johnstone and Cresswell (I am BBing)

          0FT, 1.7ITB

          Martinez
          Dias Coufal Dallas
          Bruno Salah Son Raphinha
          Kane Bamford Watkins

          Forster* Soucek R.James Ferguson*

          A) Ferguson -> Cresswell (play over Coufal)
          B) Forster -> Johnstone (play over Martinez)
          C) Do neither

          NOTE: would have to do for hit later in anyway, so more likely to pay off if I do early 🙂

            • 10 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Why not buy Taylor over Cresswell? Diversifies your defense for later in the season. Better fixtures now and good fixture in GW17 which your defense really needs.

            1. Coys96
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Much prefer Cresswell for dgw and is on set pieces

        • acidicleo

          Which one for a 4 match punt?

        • Slitherene

          2 months, 1 day ago

          Help me choose one?

          A) If I get Kane this week.
          DGW 19 might look something like this : Matip, Dias, Kane, Bamford, Watkins

          B) If I get Son this week.
          DGW 19 might look something like this :
          Stones, Ayling, Son, Vardy, Adams

          Kdb - salah - son
          Adams- bamford

          Martinez - bowen - grealish - brewster

          Would you set up any different? 5 atb seems like it never works but don't fancy bowen or grealish

          2.6ITB 0FT

          Plan to FH19.

          Anything worth a hit? Bowen->9.2 or could do Bowen DCL->Soucek Kane for -8..

            The first option but maybe TAA & Taylor instead of Robbo & Balbuena?

          What to do here? 😀 1.6 ITB and 1 FT
          Obviously I want to do KDB -> Salah for free leaving me with 0.6 ITB
          Another transfer worth a -4?

          Team is:
          Martínez
          TAA - Robertson - Coufal
          KDB - Fernandes - Son - Rashford - Grealish
          Bamford - Welbeck

          Im capping Bruno guys. I have 10 captain fails this season. You've been warned, Salah is the best captain pick.

            Captained KDB for the last 5 GWs...
            Surely you've done better than me 😉

        • smix

          Bad options but do I play:
          A. DCL or
          B. Bowen ?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            A - Just because DCL should in theory be nailed on to start

          Morning all. Am in a real pickle about what to do with this lot. Planning to FH18 and BB19. Need to deal with Matip and am contemplating binning KdB but Son who would have been the obvious replacement seems to have gone horribly off the boil. Do feel exposed with no Spurs but have got away with it so far.

          Martinez (Steer)
          Matip*, Robbie, Taylor, James, Coufal
          Mo, KdB*, Bruno, Grealish, Soucek
          Adams, Bamford DCL

          Robbo Coufal Justin Dallas Taylor
          Salah Son Bruno Souceck Bissouma
          Bamford Kane Adams

          Wildcard ready?
