The Scout Squad’s top picks for FPL Gameweek 17

Six players get unanimous backing as our Scout Squad panel reconvene to select their top picks for Gameweek 17.

This is the final article of the year and the last in this series for the best part of a fortnight as the Premier League briefly pauses for breath in early January.

For those new to this feature, Fantasy Football Scout editor David, deputy editor Neale, video content manager Andy and Pro Pundit Tom each put forward an 18-man long-list of players and explain their notable inclusions and omissions below.

The assets listed will then be narrowed down to a squad of 15 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83.0m) for the weekly Scout Picks selection ahead of the FPL deadline at 16:30 GMT on Friday.

In each writer’s squad, there are requirements for at least:

  • One goalkeeper costing £5.0m or less
  • One sub-£5.0m defender
  • One midfielder listed at £6.5m or below
  • One forward priced at £7.5m or lower

Each panelist is also restricted to no more than three players from the same team, as is the case in FPL.

We will again be adding a captaincy to the Scout Picks, with details of that revealed on New Year’s Day.

DAVID SAID

Ahead of facing a potentially depleted Fulham outfit, my inclusion of Nick Pope and Erik Pieters (likely to fill in for Charlie Taylor) seems self-explanatory. Instead, I will discuss some of my other defensive selections.

Emiliano Martínez and Alex McCarthy have challenging fixtures this weekend, facing Manchester United (away) and Liverpool (home) respectively, but I think each of them can perform better than some might think. Over the last four matches, the top three regularly starting goalkeepers for save percentage are Ederson (100%), Martínez (93.8%) and McCarthy (92.3%). Even with clean sheets less likely than usual, I think there is the potential for lots of saves and maybe some bonus points for the two most-popular Fantasy goalkeepers.

Considering Southampton’s recent struggles in front of goal, I am doubling-up on the Liverpool defence for Gameweek 17 with Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men have now gone three matches without finding the net and the absence of ball-playing centre-back Jannik Vestergaard across the last two has damaged their ability to build from the back. Meanwhile, Liverpool have conceded the fewest shots in the box over their last four matches.

James Justin seems a solid inclusion at this time of the year, considering he has managed to play every minute of the campaign thus far – an impressive feat in a season as compressed as this one. Leicester’s Gameweek 17 fixture is an appealing one too, taking them to Newcastle, who have blanked in each of their last two Premier League matches.

Meanwhile, I fancy Arsenal’s defence ahead of their run of appealing fixtures. In Gameweek 17, they travel to face a West Bromwich Albion side without a home goal since Gameweek 11. Mikel Arteta has overseen some improvement at the back again over the last two, with budget option Rob Holding featuring for 90 minutes in eight of the last nine Gameweeks.

Son Heung-min and Harry Kane may have disappointed their owners recently but I believe Saturday’s meeting with Leeds will produce plenty of attacking returns. Games involving Marcelo Bielsa’s men tend to feature tonnes of goals; their last four containing an average of 5.3 and, in that time, they rank third-worst for big chances conceded.

Anwar El Ghazi gets into my selection based on his hot form, with five goals in as many matches, while Jack Grealish has offered up just two assists in that time. The case for the Dutch winger is certainly convincing when we consider he sits top of the league for shots on target over the last four.

Arsenal’s trip to West Bromwich Albion has me liking the look of Bukayo Saka and Alexandre Lacazette. The former has been one of Arsenal’s best players during Arteta’s recent mini-revival while no player with more than 170 minutes to their name has a superior figure for minutes per expected goal involvement (xGI) than Lacazette over their last four.

NEALE SAID…

There’s still the chance that Burnley v Fulham could go the way of the two postponed Gameweek 16 fixtures given that the Cottagers were unfit for action barely 24 hours before this piece went out, so I select my two Clarets players with the obvious caveat that their upcoming match could fall by the wayside.

If it goes ahead, the prospect of Sean Dyche’s side facing an under-strength Fulham – who have scored only twice in the last five Gameweeks even with a full complement of players – is too good to overlook.

Burnley simply know how to keep clean sheets against the fellow also-rans, having already registered five of them against teams ranked 13th or below this season. The top-scoring goalkeeper of 2020, Nick Pope, is a shoo-in for this squad, then, while Erik Pieters ought to get a game either at left-back or further up the flank depending on who is fit in Dyche’s squad.

The visit of the lowest-scoring team in the division leads me to plump for Vicente Guaita between the posts, with uncertainty over just who Roy Hodgson plans to field in his under-performing defence in Gameweek 17.

Further forward, I’ve gone back to 2016/17 for my selection of Christian Benteke alongside Wilfried Zaha. Now seemingly established in Palace’s front two, the Belgian will be up against a Sheffield United defence that have shipped the joint-second-highest number of headed chances all season – and Benteke has had more of those than any other forward over the last six Gameweeks.

Aerial prowess is also what leads me to Romain Saiss, whose Wolves side will be up against a Brighton outfit conceding goals from set plays for fun.

It’s still too early to tell if Arsenal have turned a corner but I’m certainly willing to back a Gunners asset or two for Gameweek 17, with a West Brom side fresh off the back of a 5-0 spanking in midweek playing host to Mikel Arteta’s troops.

An attacking threat when he’s playing at left-back rather than at centre-half, Kieran Tierney has created 11 chances over the last six Gameweeks – a total inferior to just to two other defenders. The budget Bukayo Saka, meanwhile, is among the top ten midfielders for efforts on goal and penalty box touches over the same timeframe.

Southampton and Newcastle’s propensity to concede more chances from their right flank results in my selections of Andrew Robertson and (a hopefully rested) Timothy Castagne, meanwhile.

As for the staple selection of big hitters, it’s a recharged Harry Kane and Son Heung-min who head their respective positions with a Leeds side capable of scoring five and letting in six at the other end in town on Saturday.

TOM SAID…

With one of the standout defensive fixtures of the round, I’m doubling up on Burnley via Nick Pope and Matthew Lowton. The Clarets have now won three of their last four matches at Turf Moor, keeping two clean sheets, while of late their opponents Fulham have struggled in front of goal.

Andrew Robertson is my first-choice defender based on his potential for points at both ends of the pitch. In the absence of key centre-halves, Liverpool’s backline can sometimes look vulnerable, but it’s worth noting no team has conceded fewer shots than the Reds in their last four matches. The defensive data also tells us that Southampton have given up 17 chances from their right flank since Gameweek 13, compared to just four from their left.

I’m also backing Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Romain Saïss. Since returning to the starting XI in Gameweek 12, the Moroccan international sits top amongst defenders for shots in the box and headed attempts. That aerial ability could be key too, given Brighton and Hove Albion’s ongoing issues defending set-pieces.

They’re joined at the back by goalkeepers Vicente Guaita and Bernd Leno, plus defenders James Justin and Michael Keane.

Further forward, heavy-hitters Bruno Fernandes, Mohamed Salah, Son Heung-min, Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy all look like excellent options for Gameweek 17, so I’ll dedicate a bit more time to some of my other picks.

Back-to-back wins for Arsenal has seen several intriguing budget options emerge, none more so than Bukayo Saka. His inclusion in Spot the Differential a few weeks back may have raised a few eyebrows at the time, but he’s been key to their turnaround since, collecting 19 FPL points since moving to the right flank.

Wilfried Zaha has impressed too. Following his goal in Gameweek 16, he now has eight from 14 appearances since Roy Hodgson moved him into a free role as a second striker. His numbers suggest there is more to come, as he ranks among the top 10 midfielders for shots, attempts in the box, big chances and penalty area touches.

Elsewhere, I’m keeping faith with Chris Wood. The forward has scored just three goals from an expected goals (xG) total of 6.24 so far, making him one of the top xG under-performers in the division. However, the fact he’s getting into good shooting positions in the box is encouraging, and I’m backing him to return on Sunday.

The forward list is completed by Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Anthony Martial.

ANDY SAID…

Even with two wins on the bounce, I’m not sure I fully trust Arsenal yet – but I do tend to trust any team that is playing West Brom. Fresh from a 5-0 battering by Leeds in Gameweek 16, it won’t get any easier for Sam Allardyce’s men this week. I’ve opted for both Bernd Leno and Hector Bellerin against a team with just 8.78 expected goals (xG) this season, a full 5.42 less than the second-worst side, Burnley. That works out at 0.55 xG per game for the Baggies, which is truly awful.

I know you probably stopped reading once you saw Christian Benteke in the squad but hear me out. Sheffield United still haven’t kept a clean sheet all season and Benteke has an xG of 2.18 over the last six Gameweeks – that’s the sixth-highest among forwards. Over those Gameweeks, he’s played Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Leicester, while missing the Liverpool game. There have been returns in the easier fixtures against West Brom and West Ham and it doesn’t get much easier than Sheffield United at the moment.

While Gameweek 16 might have given us postponements, it also gave the chance for some players to get some rest after a hectic festive period. All of Jamie VardyHarry KaneSon Heung-min and Dominic Calvert-Lewin played limited or no minutes and now face Newcastle, Leeds and West Ham respectively, who are all among the bottom seven teams for expected goals conceded so far this season.

Over the last six Gameweeks, Ben Mee has had five shots inside the box – only four defenders have recorded more. Burnley face a Fulham side that have only scored two goals in their last five matches, with the Clarets keeping three clean sheets over the same period. There could be joy at both ends of the pitch for Mee, with Nick Pope also looking to return points for the fourth time in six Gameweeks.

THE COMMUNITY CHAMPION

Each week, one of the Fantasy Football Scout community takes on the Scout Picks by pitting their chosen XI against ours.

The community member who beats our picks by the biggest margin over the campaign will win a £100 Amazon Voucher and a place in our Moderators and Contributors League for the following season.

AA33‘s whopping 53-point winning margin in Gameweek 2 is the target to beat.

In Gameweek 16, Forever In Our Shadow defeated us 68-55. That means the Scouts and the community are tied on eight wins apiece over the course of 2020/21.

Our next Scout Picks article on Friday will have further details on who is representing the community this week.

    Best 4.5m defender to replace Taylor?

    1. Amans94
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Alioski / Alying (4.5) for Leeds, otherwise Balbuena at 4.4m might be a good shout

        1. tabby98
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Already have Coufal so I'm not sure about Balbuena. I was leaning towards Alioski or even Lowton

      • Kun Tozser
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Another burnley?

    2. Amans94
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Best Taylor replacement up to 5.2m who has a DGW? Already have Coufal, Dallas, Justin.

        Had an eye on RJames in case he dropped in price, but is that a massive risk given his injury status?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Stones or James yeah.

          1. Amans94
              3 months, 15 days ago

              Should have mentioned I have Dias too, so not too fussed about bringing in Stones for City defence. Good shout though, just concerned about his rotation-risk.

          2. BeWater
              3 months, 15 days ago

              I would love Reece James in my team but not right now. Have you considered Balbuena? I have him and going to add Coufal for Taylor. The extra cash might come in handy.

          3. Niho992
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Taylor to Dias? I will be outpriced if he rise tonight, so would you do that before price changes?

            Happy new year also

            Is Reece James back for the weekend? Also chances of him playing both games in double. Only 2 games in nearly 3 weeks so should be high right?

          10. tabby98
            • 5 Years

            If you use a free hit in 18 do you get a free transfer for 19?

              You will have 1FT in gw19 irrespective of how many you had going into gw18

            • 3 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            The added game in 18 is most welcome, but doing my head in. Hopefully have more clarity tomorrow as to what transfers to do.

            Good luck to everyone for the upcoming gameweek!

            1. BeWater
                3 months, 15 days ago

                My plan was FH18 and BB19. The extra fixtures only help that plan.

                1. Mika-eel
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 15 days ago

                  Sure does. Will probably have 8/9 for 18 and FH19.

                  Good luck.

                2. Bounce
                    3 months, 15 days ago

                    No, actually. They just give a lifeline to the people who didn't plan as well as we did.

                      Yeah exactly this. People that had a bunch of city defenders won't be punished during the DGW now.

                      exactly,I used my FH in gw11 so was in very bad posision but after that news I have 11 players for GW18 and 9 with dgw in19 ( Son and DCL last 2 spots) and still 2 transfers to use,happy days 🙂

                      I plan to WC25 BB26 FH29, added fixtures really help me this time (10 bgw and 11 dgw players). I will take minimum damage this time, and will improve rank a lot later

                      Oh, right. You said you will FH in 18. Lowton and Adams would be my targets to move out.

                      Adams > Watkins, maybe?

                  No need to make any transfer this GW as team looks good. You could do kane and Lowton to Vardy amd stones in gw 19..

                  Rare to say it but looks like a transfer burn - only person you'd probably swap out is McCarthy but not with nothing itb and nowhere to easily get funds even with a hit.

                  Other who are looking at TC instead of bb in gmw 19?
                  Personally I feel this is more correct for my squad. I like a second goalkeeper and struggle to find good ways of spreading out my money without too many transfers.
                  Also with the corona now so many random things can happend during a gmw. While later in the season things might be more "normal".

                  I will try to do a "neutral" transfer this round where I'm flexible with both TC/BB. And all random news so getting a player from Aston Villa, United, City or Burnley looks good.

                  Currently looking at Grealish-> El Ghazi

                      I think plenty are looking at this option with Mo Salah the TC. For my team I'm set up to BB19 so want to get that out of the way and not have to worry about getting together a playing bench later in the season.

                      Many who were building for 18, FH19 are now probably looking to keep the FH and TC instead with lots of Villa & City in their sides

                      Many we already on TC19 strats anyway too

                      Main worry with El Ghazi is with Barkley back him or Traore will likely drop although on form looks like Traore atm

                      Best replacement for Grealish to free up funds for Son >> KDB in DGW19 (have Soucek):

                      1. El Ghazi
                      2. Harrison
                      3. Raphinha

                          Flip a coin between Harrison and Raphinha, El Ghazi is on a fluky run imo

                            This, and with Barkley coming back he could be benched.

                          Just seen on Twitter that Ederson is in isolation.

                        Is it worth saving FH if I can field this team GW18?

                        Martinez
                        Cancelo - Stones
                        KDB - Bruno - Son
                        DCL - Brewster

                          3 months, 15 days ago

                          i probably would save, personally i'm going to play my FH but then i only have 4 players i think

                      8. Who are all Lukakus
                        • 4 Years
                        3 months, 15 days ago

                        Robbo and Welbeck to Maguire and Watkins for free would give me 10 players for bgw18:
                        Martinez
                        Maguire Cancelo Holding
                        KDB(c) Bruno Grealish Bissouma
                        DCL Watkins
                        And 11 players for dgw19:
                        Martinez
                        Maguire Cancelo Zouma Dallas
                        Salah(TC) KDB Bruno Grealish
                        Watkins Bamford
                        Is it good enough to save the FH? Only downside is losing Robbo

                          I will have 2 FTs before gw19 ti put out possible fires, or doing Bissouma to Raphinha

                              Yes, but for me that is a waste of a transfer.

                              FH wipes out any transfers that gw even if they were done before the FH was played.

                              I'm looking for a way to get KDB in.

                                I'm just scared that he has covid lol

                                Also should be easy to get him back in when I downgrade my K2 and D5 after the DGW BB.

                                  Saw on twitter that Ederson is in isolation, no idea who else. That's why I'm rather thinking of brining in Holding.

                                    Ok, so that has me reasonably convinced KDB over Rashford, but Chilwell over Kilman is such a big upgrade over a DGW
