Scout Notes

Mitchell benefits from Palace’s first clean sheet since Gameweek 1

Crystal Palace 2-0 Sheff Utd

  • Goals: Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.4m), Eberechi Eze (£5.8m)
  • Assist: Christian Benteke (£5.5m), James McArthur (£5.2m)
  • Bonus points: McArthur x3, James Tomkins x2 (£4.5m), Vicente Guaita x1 (£4.8m)

TYRICKSHANK RICKDEMPTION

Tyrick Mitchell (£3.9m) made a swift return to the Fantasy Premier League spotlight in Gameweek 17 as he played all 90 minutes of Crystal Palace’s 2-1 win over Sheffield United.

The left-back was a key component of budget defensive rotations earlier in the campaign but lost his place to Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) in Gameweek 7.

After going nine Premier League matches without registering a single minute, Mitchell came back for the Gameweek 16 draw with Leicester in what appeared to be Roy Hodgson exercising some festive rotation

However, against Sheffield United, the 21-year-old held onto the left-back berth six days after Crystal Palace’s Gameweek 16 fixture, the fact that van Aanholt was on the bench again heavily indicating Mitchell has established himself in the first team once again.

How often his 15.1% ownership will start him in the coming weeks remains to be seen considering the Eagles’ next two matches take them to Arsenal and Manchester City.

Meanwhile, their clean sheet on Saturday was just Palace’s second of the campaign, the first since Gameweek 1. And, of course, it was recorded against the Premier League’s worst attack Sheffield United, who have scored just eight goals in 17 matches so far (0.5 per game).

Still, finally having another starting defender in this price bracket could come in very handy over the coming weeks, especially with Max Kilman (£4.1m) recently losing his place for Wolves.

THAT WAS EZE

Wilfried Zaha (£7.4m) could be on the chopping board for his 22% ownership ahead of Double Gameweek 19. 

Palace have just one fixture in that round, arguably one the hardest possible in a trip to Manchester City, who have the joint-best home defence this season (seven goals conceded).

He goes into the mini chip season on the back of five blanks from a possible six since Gameweek 12, his only goal in that time coming against Leicester.

In Saturday’s win over Sheffield United, the Ivory Coast international did play well, driving the ball forward for Palace’s opening goal, only to end up the assister for the assister. He crossed to Christian Benteke (£5.5m), who teed up Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.4m) for the finish.

It was Eberechi Eze (£5.8m) who stole the show against Sheffield United though, pressing into unguarded space in Sheffield United’s midfield and shrugging off Ethan Ampadu before rolling a cultured finish beyond Aaron Ramsdale (£4.7m) in first-half stoppage time.

While the former QPR man only has one goal in the last three Gameweeks, it is worth highlighting that is the same number as Zaha, who has played more minutes in that time.

After missing out on the starting XI in Gameweeks 16 and 17, any questions over Eze’s place in the team were eased by a first-half injury to Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.4m), as well as his impressive performance.

After scoring the game’s opening goal, a hamstring issue forced the former Leicester man off, which Hodgson described as “concerning”. 

“[The injury to] Benteke is a dead leg. Schlupp is more concerning. A muscle injury, his hamstring.” – Roy Hodgson

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; Mitchell, Kouyaté, Tomkins, J Ward; Schlupp (Eze 40′), Milivojevic (Riedewald 90+5′), McArthur, A Townsend; Zaha, Benteke (Ayew 48′).

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; Stevens, Egan, Ampadu; Osborn (Hackford 80′), Fleck, Norwood, Basham, Bogle; Mousset (Brewster 61′), McGoldrick.

      Just upgrade Burke to a reasonable DGW option. Kane and Son v Sheffield United are probably not far off others with a DGW in terms of ceiling

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I'd consider A) if KDB and City look tasty today. His fixtures are bloody amazing! Just need them to show some form!

  2. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Thinking of DCL to Ings for DGW19 if he gets through Pool game? We know his goal scoring record and consistency. Two fixtures are perfect for him away to Leeds and Leicester with their high lines. Surprised more aren’t considering him

    1. EgyptianKing
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Defintely!

      Unfortunately given my current strategy I am short of doing DCL to Ings by 0.1.

      I think Ings is a very solid option for the short term (double namely)

    2. istanbul05
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      No doubt a good option, I assume most simply struggle with his pricepoint due to premium mids and/or Kane/Vardy.

      If you don't have any other issues, go for it IMO

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Don't have the money for him but surely a good pick.

    4. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Its him or Vardy for me in dgw19. You are not the only one 🙂

  3. istanbul05
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Thoughts only plan to hold both FH and BB chips?

    BGW18: TAA, Salah to Cancelo, KDB (-4) to give me 8 + Brewster & Lewis.

    Martinez, Cancelo, Dias, Lewis, KDB, Bruno, Grealish, Son, Kane, Brewster.

    DGW19: Son & Kane to Salah, Vardy (-4) to give 12 DGW players

    Martinez,
    Cancelo, Dias, Coufal/Dallas
    Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Grealish, Soucek,
    Vardy, Bamford.

    Forster, Coufal/Dallas, Brewster, Lewis.

    Thanks

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…

      Looks a plan

  4. balint84
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Ogbonna or Coufal?

    1. Feed tha Sheep
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Coufal

    2. EgyptianKing
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Coufal by a good margin imo

  5. Feed tha Sheep
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    For DGW19 which is best?

    A. Kane > Vardy/Agureo
    B. Son & TAA > KDB & Stones (-4)
    C. TAA, Son & Kane > Cancelo/Dias, KDB & Vardy/Agureo (-4)

    I know people say risky selling spurs but city have an extra fixture and two really good ones at that plus the fact spurs play Liverpool and Chelsea two of the next year GWs after this

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      A

      I would want KDB but selling TAA for a hit doesn't look good to me.

      1. Feed tha Sheep
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Should actually be Robertson not TAA sorry. But city fix defensively look better than Liverpool’s do you not think?

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Yeah I guess so. On further reflection it's probably worth it. City defenders could match or beat Pool defenders and I would expect KDB to beat Son by 4 or more.

          Go B.

      I think I would tbh

    3. Cookie Kid

    Is there likely to be another double with city, pool and United all having 2 games ?

  9. thegaffer82
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    What a difference a week makes in this game.

    I was at an all time low in this game last week. City & Spurs games had been cancelled (had Kane/KDB/Cancelo/Dier), those of us building for BGW and planning for FH19 were feeling incredibly hard done by and I even saw some saying they would quit FPL (I didn't go that far).

    Now, after City, Villa, Utd & Burnley games were added I have a really strong BGW team, can get 9 or 10 DGWers for GW19 and am well set up to ONLY play TC chip in 19.

    I'm back on the FPL train now and well and truly enjoying it again (71 points this week helped too 🙂 )

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Me too - triple City (a punt at the time) and Grealish patience look to have come up golden

    2. Pinky Blinders
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Same boat, even avoided a 5th yellow for Grealish which I was convinced he was set up for against United. Could still happen, but the impact would be less intense.

    3. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Well done for sticking in there and good luck over next few weeks and beyond.

    4. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Same squad that brought 33 points last week got 76 and counting this week. Bonkers season

      1. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        And still believe you're in control 🙂

    5. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Had the same strategy to FH19 and felt the same emotions when the City & Spurs games got cancelled.

      It has worked out well in the end as I also am set up nicely for both gameweeks. 78 points with Dias & Salah to play.

      May also TC in 19 as well

  10. davies

    Thoughts on this FH team?

    Darlow
    AWB Stones Holding
    KDB Sterling Bruno Son Saka
    Kane Wilson

    Mitchell

    Cheers.

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Very strong. Wish I could afford that. I have Fernandez instead of Wilson in a 4-5-1.

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Leno and Dias instead of Darlow and Stones.

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Good team

  11. Pinky Blinders
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Sanchez was a great DGW captain in that mental week we all got 200+ points, but since then, it’s been GKs and DEFs that consistently come out on top. So Dallas or Martinez then?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Duffy?

      Martinez of those

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Erm,

      "We all got 200+ points"

      I've never seen anybody with over 200 in a GW.

      Not saying it's never happened in a DGW, but I think you are massively overestimating how many achieved that feat

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I was close. Think I got something like 184 points or something.

      2. Chandler Bing
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        He's probably exaggerating but the Sanchez DGW haul really was crazy

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          75 points triple captained?

      3. Pinky Blinders
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Oh you guys also didn’t get over 200 points that week? Awkward...

      4. A.J.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Sanchez TC for 75. If I'm not mistaken Aguero got 25 that dgw as well or at least someone did.

      5. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I dont remember the figures exactly but I think I got 188, 142 and 97 scores on 3 consecutive gameweeks a couple of seasons ago and 144 points in the first week after covid restart last season. Oh for those heady days.

      6. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        He is massively, don't think I've ever seen anyone hit 200+ even with all the doublers like yaya aguero Sanchez coming through

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          I had 210 points that GW.
          Wasn't playing FPL with any effort so do not remember OR change that GW caused.

      7. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I scored 203 in the GW referenced; quite a few topped 200 afair

    3. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Yeah. Dallas has potential for +15 returns in dgw.

    4. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      That's the case when the doubles are close to each other and we get more rotation with attacking players. In 19 there will be plenty of rest so nobrainer to captain Salah/Bruno/KDB/Vardy imo, i'm using TC.

  12. luke
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Drop 1 gw18

    A - Bruno
    B - Rashford
    C - Son
    D - KDB
    E - Raheem

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      B

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      B or E are too hot and cold for their price tags, so I'd consider one of those out

    3. Squib
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Rashford

    4. luke
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Yep thinking

      Rash - Saka which would allow Laca and Harry up front

  13. Pépé Pig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    To get KdB in for GW19, would you rather do:

    Kane -> Vardy (-4)

    Adams -> Rodrigo (-4)

    (Would make moves after gw18)

    1. Goodricke
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Adams to Rodrigo

    2. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Fwiw i did Adams to Rodrigo this week in preparation for gw19

    3. AgentFern
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      B will play more minutes but A could pay off

  14. Goodricke
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Son or Rashford?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Son

    2. Squib
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Son for me

    3. Goodricke
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Son for form, Rashford for fixture.

    4. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Son

    5. AgentFern
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Both?

  15. Ron_Swanson

    “Tyrick Mitchell (£3.9m) made a swift return to the Fantasy Premier League spotlight in Gameweek 17 as he played all 90 minutes of Crystal Palace’s 2-1 win over Sheffield United.”

    Thought it was 2-0?

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      It's a typo Ron 🙂

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…

      No time for your so called expertise round here

    3. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      All energy used on that Tyrrick Mitchell pun

  16. Squib
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Got 10 players for next week- no subs and no keeper.
    Would you swap McCarthy out for a week?
    Have Nyland on bench and only 0.3 so can't afford another playing keeper.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Not yet, but Forster might become an option

    2. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      No. Not worth it.

    3. AgentFern
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I wouldnt

  17. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Soucek TC?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Nobrainer

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Going through his results vs the bottom third teams I’m honestly tempted.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      You know it. Soucek is ultimately the answer to all FPL questions.

    3. SB007
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Might get a rest?

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Doubt it. He’s essential to Hammers attack.

    I love this part of the season. Blanks, doubles, chips. It may end in tears but it's fun to plan for.

    1. Sid1891
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Agree

      Those playing chips (including me) can end up in tears due to postponements

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Many of those not using their chips had a lot of MCI and Spurs players last week. Granville one of the "biggest" names.

          True, that’s the reason l have to reshuffle squad as the change is constant, but if postponements hit DGW more headache occurs

      Planning was fun, but the fun ended for some before it really started.

    RMFHT...

    Darlow
    Cancelo, Dias, AWB
    KDB, (C) Fernandes, Rashford, Son, Saka
    Kane, Wilson

      Nice.

      1 month, 22 days ago

      The only thing I'm not sure about is double Spurs against villa??

  20. Going Home

    Any thoughts on what this FH team is missing?

    Darlow (fodder)
    Stones Holding Tierney (Mitchell, Clarke)
    Bruno KDB Sterling Son Saka
    Kane Wilson (Brewster)

    1. SB007
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Let’s see if MC deliver on the goals front. You may want 2 of their def instead

      1. Going Home
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Cheers; will monitor this. Easy move for one of KDB/Sterling to Rashford (eugh) and then Holding to any of the city defence

    Is this team OK for BGW18 or FH? (-4)

    Martinez
    Dias Stones
    Sterling Grealish Bruno
    DCL Brewster

    1. SB007
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Couple more transfers. Looks a tad weak.

      But the main returns expected from Fernandez captain and MC.

    2. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I’m in a similar situation. I’m still minded to FH but your City defence is tempting

      1. Firminoooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I know. The -4 would be Balbuena to Stones and Mane to Sterling. Would also improve my DGW team.

    3. Going Home
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I’d be worried about having no Kane or Son. Seven was always my trigger point for FH (and I’m not counting Brewster haha)

  22. SB007
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    I was going to do
    Wc17
    Fh 18
    Bb 19

    Now I’m just doing FH 19 with 10 to play in 18.

    The MU fixture changed my plans. And it’s good to keep chips back for more blanks and doubles.

  23. PascalCygan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    I’ve looked through my FH drafts and I still think it’s worth taking, even though that means burning my 2FTs. RMT reckons it would be 60ish points rather than 37ish too.

    Planning BB19

    If I don’t FH, I could squeeze out 8/9 players but only 4 of those would make my FH

    What do you reckon?

    2FT 0.1ITB
    Martinez
    Holding
    Bruno Son KDB
    DCL Watkins

    (McCarthy / Zouma Justin Coufal Struijk / Salah Soucek / Bamford)

    Thanks!

    1. AgentFern
      • 3 Years

      FH

        Cheers

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I would save the FH, have a tinker with who you could bring in with the 2FT for teams who also have a double - City, Villa, Burnley, United

      1. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Thanks. Only thing is, the best I can seem to do at the moment is something like DCL and Struijk to Wood and Wan-Bissaka. Other changes would mean sacrificing the likes of Salah or Zouma who I have value tied up in and would want back for DGW19.

        Either way, not pulling the trigger until closer to deadline

        Cheers

    So tinkering this morning I’m now thinking of just playing the TC chip in 19.

    Currently have 2FT, using one for Salah to KdB gets me 9 players for BGW18 (if Mitchell plays).

    Then for DGW19, take a -4:
    - Son to Salah
    - DCL to Brewster/Davis
    - Targett to Cancelo

    This would leave me with:

    McCarthy
    Cancelo | Cresswell | Dallas
    Salah | KdB (TC) | Bruno | Grealish | Soucek
    Kane | Bamford

    Steer | Lowton | Mitchell | Brewster/Davis

    Feels promising, thoughts?

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Looks great for a TC. Nice one

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        The player I’ve got it on I’m unsure of - may go for Salah instead

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          I’m captaining Salah 19 for what it’s worth, and I have KDB too

    2. SB007
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Good set up. Not sure about KDB.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Yeah that’s the thing, could be Salah/Bruno I guess

    3. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Gutsy to TC someone outside the top 30?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        You prefer Salah?

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Him or Bruno.

  25. SB007
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    My reason against BB in 19 as I think there will be more rest and rotation so won’t have full max out.

    Therefore differential against a carefully selected 15 FH is better

  26. Firminoooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Whats up with Balbuena? Dropped, rested or injured?

    1. FPL.team
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Looks like dropped for Dawson for now

  27. DannyDrinkVodka
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Forster owner here....what’s wrong with McCarthy? Could sway me to a BB

  28. Lignja
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Is this enough to save FH for later in season, will only use tc in gw19

    Mccarthy
    Chilwell, Coufal, Holding*, Mitchell*, Philips
    Salah, Kdb*, Son*, Grealish*, Jones
    Dcl*, Kane*, Bamford

    Gw18 Salah to Bruno*
    Gw19 Kane, Dcl to Salah, Abraham/Rodrigo/Antonio

    Have 2ft will roll one this week.

    1. Lignja
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Oh writed this kinda wrong

      Gw19 Kane,Dcl,Jones to Salah, Brewster, Abraham/Rodrigo/Antonio -4

  29. SB007
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    How many single hits will you play in DGW

    Seen many times they can be more explosive. Kane and son??

    1. dylano21
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Probably benchboost

      Kane, Dier and Neto as Single players

    2. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Son owner, keeping

    3. Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Max -8 may just do a -4.

      Tempted to do Kane Son and Brewster to Vardy Aguero and 6m mid or to Barnes Ings and Aguero.

      May keep Son tho and just do a -4

    4. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I’m definitely keeping Dier, Son and Kane vs SHU. In the end you’ll end up with many SGW players due to rest.

  30. dylano21
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Who would you rather have for 18 ?

    Watkins or Stones ?

    1. SB007
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Stones.

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Stones
