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.

    Happy NYE!

    I'm unhappy with benching Brewster for another week, and playing Soucek.
    I have 0.1 ITB. Do you think that Grealish -> Raphina & Brewster -> Watkins is a good idea?
    I plan to FH in GW18.

    I could also do Grealish -> El Ghazi & Brewster -> Rodrigo.

    Full Team:
    Martinez Forster
    Justin Dallas Coufal Dias Kilman
    Grealish KDB Salah Fernandes Soucek
    Kane Bamford Brewster

    Thanks! Cheers to 2021

        3 months, 14 days ago

        Still debating, but for now Rate My Team tool scares me into thinking Expected Points too low -> FH 18.
        Yes for now.

  6. Stupendous

    How the f is Cancelo rising???

    He is out with Covid ffs!

    Meanwhile Mahrez is dropping and if Torres is out then Mahrez will likely play finally!

    This is all headache stuff

    1. umerlfc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Out with Covid? Any confirmed news?
      Or you're talking in general about the City squad being affected?

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Cancelo is RUMOURED to be one.

        You can see I stressed a word.

    2. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      So who are the 5? Walker and Jesus then heard rumours about Cancelo, Emerson and Torres.

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Ederson. Yea.

        1. Big Ronnie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Think I'll wait on the press conference before deciding on Cancelo or Dias. Hopefully Pep gives us something.

  7. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Kane had his baby on the 29th. Cue baby related celebrations!

    1. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      He would need to score in order to do that

    2. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I remember waiting for Vardy's celebration...

          hahaha true... Moanrihno is getting more and more defensive as the season goes on, including with his tactics

  8. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Would you do the following moves?

    Firmino & Rashford —> Kdb & Antonio (free)

    1. SuperXstyle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Very tough one!! I'd probably stick with the first option of F & R, based on form.

  9. ALegendJ

    Happy new year ffsers.

    I want to bring in Lowton, any indication he might not play or game cancelled vs fulham?

    1. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      I wouldnt. Game with Fulham could not happen as Fulham was hit with a wave of covid. Then they play United and Liverpool in their next 3 games

    2. Kane and Ablett
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I’d Wait until 2 minutes before the deadline

    3. Londongeezaa
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Would you rather have Salah or KDB for GW19 double?

      Salah - United(h) and Burnley(h)

      KDB - Palace(h) and Villa(h)

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Both are must owns imo

        Struggling to see how I get Kdb sadly

      2. Kellz86
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        If it’s between them - Salah

        But I’d be trying to get both

      3. BeWater
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Salah.

          1. Londongeezaa
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Cheers guys. I have Bruno Son Salah struggling to get in KDB.

            Difficult to offload Son as I bought him at 8.9m

            1. BeWater
                3 months, 14 days ago

                I had KDB for weeks but couldn't justify him on WC. He was pretty disappointing to be honest. Missed huge chances and his team mates have blown some of his assists. I ended up with Vardy, Bruno and Salah as my big hitters and kept Son. I may move Son to Rashford but I'm not making multiple transfers to get KDB back in.

        • Olson
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Does buying 8 additional appearances (Dias, Brewster, Fabs x2, Coufal x 2, Konsa x 2) seem about as good as it gets for a -4 and a bench boost, without ruining your team for it?

          1. SuperXstyle
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 14 days ago

            seems ok, plus Dias is x2 as well.

        • Woyofthewovers66
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Feel free to rip me to shreds, but I have burned my wildcard to chase a 90 point ML deficit. I didn’t have my FH to play in GW18, and was making do with 8 players, and then 8 DGW19 players, but the new fixtures have meant that I can be more aggressive with my selections and get an 11 man GW18 team, and have 2 FT to ensure a 14/15 man DGW19 BB team.

          I get that Covid is a risk and so I may regret it, and have seen some not want to use a chip just in case it is wasted due to postponements, but you only live once and where others are cautious it can be a good time to make 30-50 points up quite quickly

          1. Woyofthewovers66
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Happy new year all, and good luck to those with the same players as me!!

            What Wildcard team did u manage to make? Im thinking the same

              • 2 Years
              3 months, 14 days ago

              Martinez / McCarthy
              Lowton / Robertson / cancelo / stones / Dallas
              Son / Bruno / KDB / el ghazi / saka (or soucek)
              Kane / bamford / Wilson

              Feel it will still be a good mix for GW20 onward

                  May do Kane to vardy for DGW depending on how spurs look in the next 2 games

        • yanky
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          no big changes needed but which would you do from below? FH18 BB19
          a) Adams > Wood
          b) Cancelo > Stones (if Cancelo covid??)
          c) waste transfer and keep Adams & Cancelo

          Is this too much?

          For GW17: Taylor --> Stones
          For GW18: FH
          For GW19: Kane + Soucek + DCL --> Brewster + KDB + Ings (-8)

            Getting rid of Soucek in GW19?! That cannot be right.

            1. SuperXstyle
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              3 months, 14 days ago

              KDB makes more sense, only if there are 2 other Hammers in the team... I mean why is nobody talking about Antonio? I have Soucek, Coufal and Cresswell. One has to go....

          1. Forster >> Johnstone or Meslier, set up for DGW19
          2. Another suggestion? (FH18 so need to use FT)

            Who would you go for?

            a) Cancelo
            b) Dias

              Cancelo normally because of extra threat, but think he has Covid (as per rumours)

              Finally got round to watching Inland Empire, made more sense than this FPL season.

              Don't forget want to do anything silly to get City players in. Taylor > Lowton the sensible move with FH18 BB19?

              With the dgw news I’m definitely keeping Dias Kdb Grealish which means no spurs this week. Is it too risky having none vs Leeds?
              Gw20 they face Liverpool so not exactly top fixtures or form right now

                  Don't mess up your plans for one fixture.

                The computer says to captain Bruno...

                Best captain:

                A) Bruno
                B) Son

                  B! Villa defence is a lot better than Leeds

                Ok so just seen City and Villa get a DGW19, with this in mind what do I use my FT on here (I’m FH18 so need to use it):

                Martinez
                Robertson Dallas Cancelo
                Salah Fernandes Son Grealish Soucek

                If I save a transfer this week and I use the free hit chip next week would I have two transfers the following week?

                Also Is the FPL wire on this week?

                  Will take a -4 GW19 to bring De Bruyne in.
                  Son > De Bruyne
                  Kane > Max 9.5m
                  Who would you replace Kane with? Firmino best option at that price?

                    Why not play Mitchell this week? I'm pondering Kilman too, but I'd pick Mitchell if I had him.
