Scout Notes

Soucek offering excellent value ahead of Double Gameweek 19

Everton 0-1 West Ham

  • Goals: Tomáš Souček (£5.2m)
  • Assists: Aaron Cresswell (£5.3m)
  • Bonus points: Souček x3, Cresswell x2, Angelo Ogbonna x1 (£5.0m)

TOMAS THE TANK

Tomáš Souček (£5.2m) has all but nailed down his place on the Fantasy Premier League radar for Double Gameweek 19.

The West Ham midfielder scored the only goal and took maximum bonus from a Gameweek 17 win over Everton on Friday night – making for an 11-point score.

Ahead of facing Burnley and West Bromwich Albion at home in the Double Gameweek, Souček is now the joint-top goal-scoring FPL midfielder priced at £7.0m or under this season (five).

The Czech Republic international is timing his form just right too. Of his five strikes in 2020/21, four of them have coming in the last seven Gameweeks, helping him produce 6.4 points per game in that time.

“He’s been very important. If he keeps coming up with the goals I’ll be more than happy.” – David Moyes

Naturally, it is Souček’s price that clinches his appeal for anyone considering another Double Gameweek asset – although he does miss Blank Gameweek 18, of course. Costing £5.2m, the West Ham has offered 14.2 points per million spent this season, the best among all midfielders at the time of writing.

OUT OF LUK

With those favourable Double Gameweek fixtures on the horizon, West Ham now have clean sheets in each of their last two matches.

Angelo Ogbonna (£5.0m) was a key factor in the latest shutout, dominating the skies at Goodison Park with his endless stream of headers won against Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.9m).

The Italian centre-back is unlikely to draw too much Fantasy interest of his own, mostly on account of his price, Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m) still a steady source of points at right-back. No West Ham defender has registered as many key passes as the Czech Republic international over their last four matches. His places in the team looks a little more assured than before considering David Moyes revealed on Friday that Ryan Fredericks (£4.2m) is now self-isolating.

Aaron Cresswell (£5.2m) provided the assist for Souček’s game-winning goal, taking his total for the season to six, the most among all FPL defenders.

However, it is worth pointing out that five of those have come on the road and both of West Ham’s Double Gameweek fixtures take place at the London Stadium – where two of Coufal’s three assists have come in 2020/21. The right-back also has bonus points in three of his six home appearances.

Meanwhile, Fantasy managers should keep an eye the goalkeeper situation at West Ham, which took an interesting turn on Friday night.

Lukasz Fabianski (£5.1m) pulled up with a thigh injury in the pre-match warm-up, replaced in the starting XI by kindly priced Darren Randolph (£4.4m).

Should the Polish international be out long enough to miss Double Gameweek 19, his understudy could provide excellent value – although there is now just over two weeks until West Ham’s next Premier League fixture. Thankfully there will be updates before, during and after an FA Cup third-round tie with Stockport County.

Michail Antonio (£6.1m) will require a similar level of monitoring after another substitute’s appearance in Gameweek 17. Moyes explained he is still not ready to start matches. 

“I’m getting told by the medical team how long I can play him for. I knew the other night I had 15 minutes. I might have a little bit longer tonight if we need him. He’s not ready to start yet. He’s got a history of hamstring injuries, so we’re trying to make sure we don’t lose him for a long period.” – David Moyes

“It was great to get Michail Antonio back tonight for another 30 minutes, too. We’ll keep building him up and there was no reaction in his hamstring which was very good.” – David Moyes

SAME OLD STORY

Gameweek 17 was more of the same for Calvert-Lewin owners, as he went a fifth-straight game without finding the net.

Having produced 7.8 points per match between Gameweeks 1 and 9, the Everton forward is averaging 3.8 since then.

Continually starved of service during that run with James Rodríguez (£7.7m) out of action, Calvert-Lewin was forced to run into the channels and drop deep to try and make things happen for himself against West Ham.

Admirable qualities in a team player but considering Calvert-Lewin has been at his best this season when standing in the six-yard box waiting to convert chances, seeing him occupy deeper and wider positions is, of course, cause for concern.

“The performance was not at the top. Compared to the last game, we had more of the ball but we were not able to manage the ball as we wanted, with speed and with quality in the final third. We didn’t have a lot of opportunities in the game. West Ham defended really well.” – Carlo Ancelotti

However, there may still be crumbs of comfort for his shrinking ownership.

Firstly, Calvert-Lewin has a Blank Gameweek 18 fixture to contest, which he is likely to play alongside Rodríguez, who finally returned from injury against West Ham.

While the Colombian was unable to fashion much in the way of clearcut chances on Friday night, his 26-minute cameo suggests he could be starting in Blank Gameweek 18 later this month.

Nobody has particularly impressed in Rodríguez’s place during his injury lay-off and Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) missed Gameweek 17 anyway.

“A little problem during training. He was a little bit tired. I didn’t want injuries like Michael Keane, who is on the bench. He played a lot of games maybe rest for him could be good.” – Carlo Ancelotti

Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Godfrey, Mina, Holgate, Coleman; Doucouré, T Davies; Richarlison, Sigurdsson (Gomes 64′), Bernard (Rodríguez 64′); Calvert-Lewin (Tosun 79′).

West Ham United XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna, Dawson, Coufal; Rice, Soucek; Benrahma, Fornals (Lanzini 73′), Bowen (Yarmolenko 73′); Haller (Antonio 59′).

  3. Dream Killers 2.0

    Whoops! First time I've forgotten the deadline in a long time. My strategy was to FH in 18 and BB in 19. Have two FTs going into 18.
    Perhaps I should change my strategy now...? What do you think?

    Martinez
    Robertson, Chilwell, Allioski
    Bruno, Son, Salah, Grealish
    DCL, Bamford, Adams

    Steer, Bowen, Cresswell, Mitchell

    1. Siva Mohan
      • 8 Years

      depends on your transfers..

    2. squits
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Up to you. You'll lose the banked transfer if you free hit. Bad time to miss it!

      1. Dream Killers 2.0
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Definitely. It has really left me with a dilemma. Free hit to get full team or use 2 FTs and a hit or two to get GW18 players. However, then I'd likely be weakening my DGW19 squad.

    3. OneMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      I prefer saving BB until I really need it.

  4. Alisson WondHaaland
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Best combo to complete the bench boost?

    A) Kane Bowen Bissouma (No transfers needed, Roll FT in 19)
    B) Rodrigo KDB Bissouma -4
    C) Vardy Bowen Harrison/Soucek -4
    D) Rodrigo Bowen Rashford -4

    Morning dzzz, crazy how my rival's soucek has been outscoring my KDB last few weeks sigh!! best moves here with 2FT and 0m itb. Not sure yet whether i am going to BB19 or not

    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones Taylor --- Coufal Dallas
    Son KDB Bruno Burke -- Salah
    DCL Watkins -- Bamford

    A: Taylor (injured) >> Lowton if i am going to BB19
    B: Taylor (injured) >> Holding or any other 4.5m defender
    C: Salah >> Auba/Rashford (1 week punt). reverse the move next gw

    1. Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      What would your bench boost look like? If you're not bench boosting you could do Dallas/ Coufal to Holding, if Taylor is fit you'd have an extra player next week

      1. unitednations
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        BB would be johnstone, taylor, soucek, DCL.

        Will be starting dallas and coufal regardless in gw19 so def not taking them out.

  6. Kryptonite666

    Who are essential DGW attackers apart from Salah, Bruno and Soucek for value ?

    I have Kane, Son, Wilson and Grealish. Which Double gameweekers should I get instead

    Vardy ? Rashford? KDB ? Any others ?

    1. Make United Great Again

      You’ve named them!

    2. jomikijiq

      Bamford

    Kdb!

  8. OneMan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    DeBrunye looks a better pick now that Kun is back. Anyone eles feel that City's goals will come now ?

    1. squits
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Surely the goals will come. Kdb should have had an extra 3 or 4 assists if his teammates could finish

    2. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Could well be tbh. You Vardy or KDB for the double?

      1. squits
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I cant reach vardy's price so my eggs are firmly in the kdb basket

    3. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      I fully expect kun to get injured again

    4. Lazaretti
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Kun is the best finisher in PL so should boost KdB too

    5. mrelpea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      It’s got to be a matter of time before they come back. KDB is very much coming back into the team for
      GW19

  9. Orion
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Free hit question...
    Is it better to hit the button immediately or just before the deadline ? Or it’s the same... Asking cause of players price changes...
    Cheers

    1. squits
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Wait incase of postponed fixtures. You can't cancel it once pressed

      1. Orion
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        But if I make a transfer and bank 0.1 or more during the week and then free hit before deadline, what’s happening with that banked money?

        1. Siva Mohan
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          gone

  10. mynameisq

    I know this has been asked by 599 million people about the free hit but does bench boost also mean you sacrifice an ft, if you have 2 saved or are about to save 2 in the week you use bb

    1. Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      No, bench boost and triple captain dont effect transfers

    2. Stoic
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      No

  11. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    For the dgw 19.

    A Vardy Benhrama/Raphinha
    B Ings Pulisic/Ziyech
    C Son Antonio +4

    Pick one.

    1. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      A

      1. Make United Great Again

        With Rap

    2. Concrete
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      A with vardy

      1. Concrete
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Raphina

  12. Make United Great Again
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Which duo for the GW19 double?

    A. KDB & Martial
    B. Vardy & Rashford

    1. Concrete
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      A

    2. Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Im having a big dilemma over KDB vs Vardy too. Not just for the double but the fixtures afterwards too. In your case Id say B since Martial is a rotation risk with Cavani returning from suspension

      1. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        This is true. Rotation does factor into it

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      A

    4. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Two votes for A...gulp

    5. Steager
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      What about KDB and Cavani.

      Cavani will be fresh back from suspension and looks more clinical when he plays. Ole said he wants to play him more.

    6. mrelpea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

  13. Miguel Sanchez

    • 4 Years

    Who would you rather TC in GW19?

    A) Salah (MAN, BUR)
    B) KDB (CPA, AVL)
    C) Fernandes (liv, ful)

    1. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years

      C

      If Aguero stays fit I'm TCing KDB. (Have all three).

      1. scubasmithy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        bold, but i love it.... I have Kane and in 19 he is either going to Aguero/Vardy

    5. scubasmithy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Would have been Salah, but I don't think Liverpool or City have the best attacking unit right now in terms of form.

      Personally I've switched to bench boost and gonna save my TC but I'd still go Salah out of fear, Bruno out of hope, KDB differential.

      Damnit, I honestly don't know.... all 3 are good

    6. Bielsa Murderball
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Have all 3, considering Bamford! Has decent fixtures too

        1. Bielsa Murderball
            3 months, 14 days ago

            but of those 3, probably B

        2. DannyDrinkVodka
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 14 days ago

          It’s gotta be KDB. The fixtures, the potential return of Aguero, his underlying stats.........I doubt that there will be a better opportunity on paper this year

      • Siva Mohan

        choose one..

              Tough Call. Vardy and Raphina.....both good options.

              I presume you are free hitting in 18, so this would be for a -4?

              Personally I think with city fixtures and your second wildcard to come later, I'd go the KDB route. You can then deploy TC in 19 on either Salah, Bruno or KDB.

              To -4 for a bench boost where you still don't have a playing keeper (4-6 points assumed for that)..... 10 points down on a normal deployent.

              No such issue with TC and KDB (if you trust him) in for the long term...

        Looking for a cheap defender and see Douglas at £3,8m in the statistics section, but I can’t select him in the transfers section?

        1. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Ha - He's definitely there, I selected him in my FH draft squad.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            This, and the key point as CONNERS said is "FH draft" don't pull the trigger yet but

            - Have 2 drafts drawn up
            - One with 0.2-0.3 itb just in case

              No way to get KDB in, though.

        Thoughts or suggestions about this FH draft?

          Pretty good, although I think I'd go with Darlow instead of double Arsenal defence.

            Cheers! Didn’t think about that, but Darlow sounds way better. Thanks!

          Skip DCL and get Grealish for Saka

        Would you play this in GW18 or FH? The only issue is no Spurs

        Martinez
        Dias, Maguire
        KDB, Bruno, El-Ghazi
        DCL, Wood

        Hows this for a WC to cover the Blank and DGW.. Will BB GW19.

        McCarthy/*Martinez
        **Bailly/*Dier/*Stones/Chilwell/Coufal
        *Son/*Bruno/*El Ghazi/Soucek/Salah
        *Aguero/*Wilson/Bamford

        9 for blank week.
        I can transfer outDier or Wilson for DGW19, 13 Doubles for BB.

        1. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Don't like Bailly or Dier picks, rest looks fine.

          Aguero pick could be gold.

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

          maybe change Bailly and Dier to Shaw and Holding?

          Then do Wilson to Cavani.

          Think i may have nailed it.

        Hey all,

        Thoughts on this team for the DGW for a -4?

        Martinez
        Cresswell - Dallas - Justin
        Salah - KDB(TC) - Bruno - Son - Soucek
        Vardy - Bamford

        1. GS456
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Like it

      • Party time
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Can Soucek sustain this run of form?

        I can’t believe how good he has been, I used to underestimate him because he played deep in midfield, it seems he is a box to box midfielder

        1. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Doubtful, but he's become a shoo-in at that price regardless.

        2. mookie
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          He's a defensive mid for a team that creates very little. Owners must be eye test deniers and hardcore believers in luck.

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

            He gets on the end of many chances though. Their main threat is crosses in box and he's one of the chief target

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

            He’s not a defensive mid, he is a box to box mid. Look at his career stats and you’ll see he has been a prolific goalscorer for his position throughout his career, not just this season and that was why he was a popular option that was often discussed here in the preseason.

              1. Wılly
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 14 days ago

                @Mookie you should probably look at heatmaps and watch some more West Ham matches.

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

                I suggest you look at the stats on transfermarkt yourself but anyway thanks for supporting my point, I hadn’t bothered to share the link.

                48 goals 16 assists in 215 games. Attacking return in every 208 minutes excluding fantasy assists.

          3. Amsterhammer
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            He's not a defensive mid at all. You talk with authority but are patently wrong.

            1. mookie
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 14 days ago

              Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't WH play 4-2-3-1? He plays next to Rice.

              1. Carlton_Goal
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 14 days ago

                He does play alongside Rice but his role is more attacking as well. He is constantly making runs into the box when West Ham get the ball out wide, especially late in the game or when West Ham go a goal down, don't expect him to keep up his form of 4 goals in the last 7 but would be very surprised if he doesn't end up on double digits for goals at the end of the season

                1. MMN
                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 14 days ago

                  Double digits? That just means 5 more in 21 games which would be a massive drop to his current rate.

                  1. Wılly
                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 14 days ago

                    Double digits equals between 10-99 goals.

                    1. Carlton_Goal
                      • 5 Years
                      3 months, 14 days ago

                      Exactly, there's no way he scores 100 😉

                  2. Carlton_Goal
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 14 days ago

                    I was saying it as more of a floor than a ceiling. Perhaps I didn't word it the best, I'd probably expect around 13-15 in total

                  3. MMN
                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 14 days ago

                    What I meant to say is that merely reaching double digits doesn't mean much as it can be achieved with 5 more goals in the remaining 21 games. 13-15 is certainly a bold prediction ... Extremely unlikely for Soucek, the statisticians will tell you.

        3. Wılly
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          West Ham are reliant on their set-pieces for goals and that turns Soucek into a focal point for their attacking opportunities. He'll be one of West Ham's top goalscorers this season, no doubt about it.

        4. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          He is deep in some aspects of the game but is allowed to get into the box at occassions, and times his runs well. And set pieces too.

      • Alisson WondHaaland
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        With Salah and Bruno as staples, I think Vardy is a better 3rd premium pick than KDB.

        He's cheaper, has good fixtures after the double (ofc not as good as City's but still a good run), in form and there are better cheap Midfield options than strikers imo. Also gives an easy route into another premium striker such as Kane or Ings if its necessary.

        I also simply back Vardy getting more returns than KDB over this run. Just cant see City suddenly hitting some good form attack-wise after looking so poor for the whole season

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

          I'm thinking about exactly same choice atm.

        2. GS456
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Yeah vardy will be in my team

        3. Wılly
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          I'm not a fan of expensive forwards, I'd rather invest money into midfielders with more opportunities to score points.
          No doubt that Vardy is a great option though.

      • matiakez
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Is lookman to Soucek worth the hur prior to the double?

        1. AzzaroMax99
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Yes imo.
          I will swap Bowen with Soucek for gw19.

      • Vpan
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        for BB GW19

        a) Rodrigo + Coufal

        or

        b) Adams + Alioski

        1. Ha.
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          A

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          A

      • AzzaroMax99
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Just contemplating: On FH would you go with 2 City att & 1 def or 2 defs & 1 att/midf?

        Maybe Dias, Mendy & Sterling/Kdb?
        Also between Kev and Rah, which one? Kev is better player ofc, but he seems out of form.

        1. Dr Van Nostrand
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          2 D for me

      • TSILIKAFENEIAKOS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        For DGW would you rather have :

        A. Grealish + Vardy
        B. Mane + Watkins
        C. (A complete differential) Barnes + Martial/Rashford

        Already have KDB Bruno Salah

        1. Orion
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          A

        2. Siva Mohan
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          A

      • Oggle22
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        So as of next game week Soucek will be in EVERYONE'S team who do we think will be the next break out player? Ps can't believe I've had him for 3 weeks and benched him every time doh

        1. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 4 Years

          Yep benefit of playing him will be lesser from now.

      • unitednations
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Currently have 9 starters for bgw18 + Taylor who may or may not play. Have 2FTs but only want to use 1 so i can carry over 2FT's for next gw

        A: Taylor >> Holding or any other 4.5m def for bgw18
        B: Salah >> Auba...and then back to Salah in dgw19. It i will do 3 transfers in gw19 so will take a hit.

      • GS456
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Which one for the DGW guys?

        A) De Bruyne (c)
        B) A bench boost off Randolph, Coufal, Souchek, Dallas. (-8)

        Can’t really fit a bench boost with KDB in.

        1. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Not sure i would want Kdb for the double, City are not attacking, they are scraping one or two nil wins. Front line us not what is used to be, with Silva and sane gone. And fernandinho is above his best which makes pep compromise with gundogan alongside Rodri, because Rodri is not anywhere close to fernandinho, too slow and not good enough to deal with the task of being citys cleaner boy. And with strikers either above their prime or injured then goal flurrys are far and fewer.
