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′).

    Always intended to FH in GW18, but wondering if I can now save it and take a -4 to get this.

    Martinez
    Dias Holding
    KDB Son Grealish Bruno
    Kane Welbeck

    Then would take another -4 to get Salah and any forward up to 8.3 in for Son and Kane to give me this 11 in GW19.

    Martinez
    Robertson Dallas Coufal Dias
    KDB Salah Bruno Grealish Soucek
    Bamford

    Won't BB in GW19 even if I FH 18, so this way seems the best option.

    1. Jersey Boy
      • 2 Years

      Looks good

    2. Sarri Ms. Jackson
      • 2 Years

      Yeah I’d definitely do that, looks great

    3. A.J.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Would lose .2 selling Salah for one week but the upside of keeping the FH for later has to be worth it.

      I think so mate, I'm currently wondering if I can limp home with the below which is worse than what you're considering:

      Martinez
      Cancelo / Mitchell (may become Stones)
      KDB / Grealish / Bruno
      DCL / Brewdog

      What do you reckon? If Mitch and Brewdog play well enough this weekend (if they start) to look like keeping their place I'd be more confident with it. No Spurs is the worry, guess I'll see how their form looks today.

      That gives me this for the double:

      Martinez
      Cancelo / TAA / Coufal / Dallas
      KDB / Grealish / Bruno / Soucek / Salah
      Bamford

      May also bring in Ings for DCL and probably then play Coufal first sub.

        3 months, 9 days ago

        The issue is how many hits are worth preserving FH. I'd probably FH in your position with no Son or Kane. If you can hokey cokey one of them without costing points then you could be ok.

        1. St Pauli Walnuts
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          I have 2FT so could but it is more a money thing, I'd lose too much on Salah to take him out and bring back in the next week and obviously taking out KDB or Bruno would be pointless. I've been banking on poor Spurs form continuing and the over performing (stats wise) of Kane and Son being unsustainable. I'll see if that get blown out of the water today and assess from there! Villa are a good side though so I don't see Spurs blowing them away, on that basis I think the FH would be more valuable further down the line. I'll ponder some more. Good luck!

          1. A.J.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 9 days ago

            If I couldn't get Salah back straight away relatively unscathed, I'd have definitely FH18. The number of players I have doesn't really bother me, just having the ones that can hurt my rank covered. Going quite well so hopefully this will pay off down the road. Good luck however you decide.

      Has Grealish said this? - a ban for him then?

      1. just a man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I don’t think that’s his account.

    2. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Lol

  4. Forgetmeknot
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 9 days ago

    Could I call on the collective mathematic minds here to help/check my thinking;

    Bgw18 - Salah (CP 12.6 SP 12.4 PP 12.3) to Rashford (9.5)

    Dgw19 - I already have 0.2 in the bank plus the 2.9 from above can do Son (SP 9.7) to Salah (PP 12.6 assuming he doesn’t move up)

    Is my maths correct? Will allow 9 for free in 18 and 11 doublers in 19 which I’m happy with

    1. SackWenger
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Yep with a further 0.2 in hand for fluctuations

      1. SackWenger
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Also no rush to sell Salah as next drop won’t affect your sale price. Would need to monitor Rashford purchase price but last night helped keep that steady

        1. Forgetmeknot
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Lovely ta

  5. POTATO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    How compulsory is it this year to BB GW19 if you want to stay in Cup and LMS?

    1. ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      When all is said and done,I would expect there to be far fewer BB chips played then might have been predicted a few days ago. I think the majority in the Top 10k (perhaps even Top 50k) will not BB.

    2. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Can you risk it? Imagine there will be a lot of TCs as well

    3. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Who cares about the cup? It's a rubbish competition that even more bsed on pure luck than the FPL game itself.

      I wouldn't be using a chip for that reason that's for sure

    4. ivantys
        3 months, 9 days ago

        You'll be facing a random FH/BB/TC in one of the weeks anyway

        1. POTATO
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Heck I may not make it past GW18 given the number of free-hitters...

          I am concerned that there will be lasting damage to OR if not playing the TC/BB GW19 - who knows if a better opportunity will arise again this season?

          1. ivantys
              3 months, 9 days ago

              It's only a fair fight in the cup if no chips are involved, else it just depends on luck whether you face one with chips.

          McCarthy Johnstone
          Robbo Dias Coufal Dallas Taylor*
          Salah Bruno Rashford Raphinha Soucek
          Vardy Bamford Adams

          Taylor can become Targett, Holding or Pieters with a FT.
          Only concern is the lack of City and Villa...

              It looks like a wildcard 16 so I'd guess 0.

                    Lol hopefully not.

                    I did a similar thing to you and wildcarded GW17 instead of GW18 like you’ve done.

                    I’m BB 19 too. Our only differences are that I went for DDG and Dallas instead of meslier and AWB. I’ll also have Adam’s or Antonio with rashford instead of vardy and soucek.

                    Maybe consider double West Ham defence for 19, I think it could yield a big return!

                      3 months, 9 days ago

                      Out of interest. What made you use wildcard instead of fh?

                        • 6 Years
                        3 months, 9 days ago

                        Because I was already fully committed to BB19 FH 18 for the past 3/4 weeks.

                        When the new fixtures were released for city/Utd/villa it gave me the opportunity to switch to a wildcard which did the following;

                        - saved me a planned -8 in gw17
                        -be able to have a team that gave me 10 good players for 18 and be a -4 away from 15 dgwers for 19 (as I’m rolling this weeks xfer).
                        -have a better BB team as I’d be able to have triple city, without having to take multiple additional hits.
                        -have a team that I’m happy to chill with from 19 onwards
                        -I think gw29 is a much bigger blank than gw18 so having the FH in the pocket seems a nice play.

              He has two games in before the DGW, so if he doesn't play against city, I might reconsider. I understand that there is little time between then and now though. I am going to listen to pre match interviews to see what is said about him

                If you're near the top in a mini league, someone popular, Bruno for example. If low down, someone with a relatively low ownership, who will still perform.

                Salah, 2 games at Anfield

              What’s these rumours about Kane scoring a hat trick?

              1. Make United Great Again
                • 8 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                They’re incorrect.

                Son on the other hand is more explosive and will show why later

              2. Van der Faart
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                Hatrick of assists for Son hatrick

              3. Carlton_Goal
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                Interesting my sources say its actually 4 goals

                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 9 days ago

                  It’ll be 0-0 after all this!

            3. ThatsTheWeekendRuined

              Are we expecting many more DGWs?

              1. thegaffer82
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                At least 1 big one to come... and there’ll surely be more than that I would think

              2. MSTRKRFTSMN
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                Under normal circumstances I’d expect at least 2 or 3 double Gameweek sun the last 10 weeks of the season due to European fixtures and cup clashes etc. This year could be more. We already have cancelled fixtures that will need to be scheduled

              3. noquarternt

              If only the additional BGW & DGW matches were known earlier. Stuck with only 4 players for the BGW hence no option but to FH

              1. thegaffer82
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                That's a shame it really is.

                But I'm guessing you had a better week than many of us when the City & Spurs games were both called off... so swings and roundabouts?

            5. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              I have got 2FT’s and I’m fairly happy with my BGW team (8 players + Brewster & Mitchell)... but instead of burn the FT, I’m going to do a Salah Hokey Cokey and get him back for DGW....

              But who to bring in for 1 week (GW18) only;

              A) Son
              B) Rashford
              C) Sterling

            6. Shark Team
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              Best option in FH?
              A) Dias Maguire Saka
              B) Holding Yedlin Martial

              1. thegaffer82
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                A)

            7. Van der Faart
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              Is there any chance Taylor plays? Left him in ahead of Cresswell. #facepalm

              1. MSTRKRFTSMN
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                Nah... hamstring issue. Won’t be featuring this week

                No chance, IF it’s his hammy. Doubt he’ll play any of DGW either.

                • 8 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                It’ll be high scoring. That’s for sure. 3-3

                1. thegaffer82
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 9 days ago

                  Spurs games don't seem so high scoring these days so it's a bold guess

                • 8 Years

                Jose will put markers on Raphinha and Bamford and grind a win

                I'd probably use fh

                Stones risk
                Davis won’t start
                FH

            10. Sarri Ms. Jackson
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              How is this BB19 team looking? Any glaring fixes needed? (would be a -4):

              Meslier (Johnstone)
              Coufal Dias Justin (Dallas, Lindelof)
              Bruno Salah KDB Soucek (Oriol Romeu)
              Bamford Vardy Adams

              Lindelof injured currently but a little while until the GW so holding off getting rid for now. Will he come straight back into starting XI for Utd if fit? Worth a hit to be on the safe side?

              1. JabariParkersEyelid
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 9 days ago

                I wouldn't bench boost that.

            11. ‘Tis the Season
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              Is it a good idea to totally remove for KDB from GW 18 i.e. Kane and Son out for Vardy and KDB? Is KDB now essential

              1. MSTRKRFTSMN
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                I’d still want to hold one of the spurs lads

                1. ‘Tis the Season
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 9 days ago

                  Thanks. Keep Kane or son?

                  1. MSTRKRFTSMN
                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 9 days ago

                    Tough call. I flipped a coin and it came up son

            12. Jellyfish
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              A or B ?

              A) Rashford and Vardy
              B) KDB and Martial

              1. ‘Tis the Season
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                B-city fixtures?

                1. Jellyfish
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 9 days ago

                  Yep that’s what I’m leaning to. Already have Bruno which makes it an easier choice really

            13. Ian Davis
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              1st wildcard still available - so wildcard and bench post DGW19 the best option?

              1. thegaffer82
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                It is totally dependent on your team.

                Mine is well set up for both weeks without using WC or FH. I'll just play my TC in GW19 and keep all the other chips for later in the season

                1. Ian Davis
                  • 11 Years
                  3 months, 9 days ago

                  The 1st wildcard doesn’t carry over though, or does it?

              2. SackWenger
                • 11 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                1st wildcard expired. You’ll be using final wildcard

              3. MSTRKRFTSMN
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                Can’t be. It expired 28/12

                1. Ian Davis
                  • 11 Years
                  3 months, 9 days ago

                  Damn... That’s really annoying! I’ve always assumed it’s one for either side of the season - and we haven’t reached halfway yet. Seems a bit random the way they’ve done that.

                  1. MSTRKRFTSMN
                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 9 days ago

                    It was like that until this year. I held mine all season until I randomly decided to check the rules a week ago and squeezed it in for gw15

            14. thom830g
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              I got two FT this week. Can I use one FT, then FH for GW 18 and still have the player I transfered in for the FT for GW 19?

              1. thom830g
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                If I go through with the FT first ofcourse and then goes to use the FH afterwards

              2. ZAMUNDA
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                No, FH works for the whole gw no matter what FT you use or even hits. Once used, it overtakes any transfer action done

              3. MSTRKRFTSMN
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                No. The key wording with free hit is ‘your squad is returned to how it was at the start of the gameweek’. I was hoping for something like you but just tried today and it doesn’t work, unfortunately.

              How does the DGW in 19 work with YCs?
              Say for example Targett gets a YC in the first game will he be suspended for the second game?

                3 months, 9 days ago

                I don’t like spurs fixtures after this week and his form has dipped anyway. Need to see something of aguero hopefully today and in gw18. But it’s a move I’m contemplating

              3. Carlton_Goal
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 9 days ago

                Kane has Sheffield United in 19 so not like he can't haul there. Would want to see lots of minutes from Aguero this week and in 18 before even considering that

                  Yea thanking that myself, gota see what he does over the next 2 games, if he gets a chance, feel like kane as went off the boil,
