Fantasy Football Scout Community Trials open again

The dawning of a new year brings fresh opportunities, different perspectives and, of course, a brand new FPL wildcard to tempt us! In this spirit of renewal, Fantasy Football Scout are delighted to be re-opening our Community Trials in order to discover and celebrate upcoming writing talent.

Alongside the Pro PunditsScout Network and Scout Academy, the Trials are part of our continuing mission to support the wider world of FPL content creators and expand the extent of FFS’s own coverage.

Specifically, the Community Trials offer an opportunity for budding writers to submit an article with a view to getting a paid commission, raising their profile and generally furthering their editorial career.

We ran the inaugural version of this enterprise back in the Autumn and, after much deliberation of MANY articles, ultimately picked four winners: DomWatts23GreyheadKroos Kontrol and RubberDucky.

We handed each of these writers a chance to work alongside the Fantasy Football Scout editorial team on a commissioned article that will feature in the main editorial flow. The first of these was published last week, as mindfulness coach DomWatts23 revealed his thoughts on how to balance FPL with our mental health in an unpredictable season. You can READ IT HERE.

If you fancy an opportunity to follow in their footsteps then now is the time to get your thinking cap on and start sharing your ideas.

The Community Trials window will be open for four weeks, between today and Sunday, February 7. During this period, we will monitor everything submitted, provide a little feedback here and there and then reward the best and most interesting new writers with paid commissions to contribute to the main site.

We think this is a great opportunity to test out new ideas and angles, flex your creative muscles and get attention from our editorial teams. Even if you don’t get picked first time round, don’t worry, we’ll be running more trials throughout the year.

The second Community Trials are now officially open and run through to February 7, so start submitting using this link.

    Flop Alli is off for flop Bale

    Any changes to this WC? Looks great on paper. But then...

    Leno, Meslier
    AWB, Cancelo, Tierney, Yedlin, Cresswell
    KDB, Bruno, Rashford, Gudon, Soucek
    Wilson, Laca, Bamford

    Enough in bank for Wilson>Vardy for double which I'm using BB

    1. Albrightondknight

      3 City would be the starting point of a WC for me but your call.

    Kun confirmed to be isolating for the Brighton game

    Is Jesus now a more obvious FH pick?

    1. Nimby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      KDB might play up front again.

    2. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      Gundo would have been up top anyway.

    3. Jimmy Boy

      Do not pick Jesus, the man destroyed my season for all the wrong reasons

  4. Vazza
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      Would you do Johnstone to De Gea for a 4 point hit?

      I’m intending to save my FH but play BB in GW19..

          Not worth going for 2 more points for CS

        • Nimby

          • 2 Years

          I don't mind taking hits but that seems like a low ceiling move. I'd probably save it.

            Thanks

          Great way to gain a few followers... unless it's true!

            Great way to bet blocked & mass unfollowed if false though.

            1. Fred54
              • 6 Years
              10 days, 11 hours ago

              It will hardly be a state secret.

              With 759 followers I think he'll survive

            Why wouldn't they reveal their sauce if it's true? I think it will happen though to be honest. It just makes so much sense unless there is some rule that prevents such a short-notice fixture rearrangement.

              Confidentiality most likely, won't continue getting news - if true - if you're revealing your source to everyone.

        • Gudjohnsen

          Is Jesus now an option?

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            10 days, 11 hours ago

            Any religion is permitted.

            religion is the last refuge of a scoundrel

        • Nikolai Volkoff

          Does Gundog cover DeBeast?

            dePends on who you upgrade.

            1. Nikolai Volkoff
              • 4 Years
              10 days, 11 hours ago

              Neto > Gundog (+ Cancelo & Stones) and keep Salah for DGW 19.
              Otherwise its Salah > KDB

              1. TorresMagic™

                10 days, 11 hours ago

                For a GW or 2, you might get away with it but a big risk.

            No

          3. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            10 days, 11 hours ago

            Does Sir ScottyMcT cover DePenMerchant?

        • Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 11 hours ago

          Pick one:

          A) Sterling + Martial
          B) Rashford + Vardy

          Have KDB and Bruno.

          What do you call a sub for marine?

          1. Vazza
              10 days, 10 hours ago

              Submarine?

          2. Gunner Boy
            • 6 Years
            10 days, 10 hours ago

            Keep or Sell Grealish on a FH?

            1. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years
              10 days, 10 hours ago

              Do they have a game?

            2. jammie26
                10 days, 10 hours ago

                Keep and TC imo.

            3. Tony Martial
              • 2 Years
              10 days, 10 hours ago

              Is Martinez and Son -> De Gea and Rashford worth a -8 in total and then in GW 20 Rashford and Robertson -> Salah and Chillwell? To save my FH and my team would be so much better.

            4. Vazza
                10 days, 10 hours ago

                Would you do Curtis Jones to Saka for a 4 point hit?

                I’m intending to save my FH but play BB in GW19..

              • Albrightondknight
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                10 days, 10 hours ago

                Any thoughts on going the whole hog and C on Sterling over KDB. I need a rank rise but should I just play it safe and C KDB and see any Sterling points as a bonus.

                Captain Laca let's go

                • 4 Years
                10 days, 8 hours ago

                Can you push the free hit AFTER you made the transfers?

                  10 days, 8 hours ago

                  Yes you can.
                  But your GW19 squad will look like your GW17 squad
