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
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      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
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      KDB might play up front again.

    2. Fred54
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Gundo would have been up top anyway.

    3. Jimmy Boy
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

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

  4. Vazza
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 18 days 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..

    1. ivantys
      • 1 Year

      Not worth going for 2 more points for CS

    2. Nimby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      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!

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

      1. Fred54
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        It will hardly be a state secret.

      2. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 18 days ago

        With 759 followers I think he'll survive

    2. Nimby

      8 months, 18 days ago

      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.

    Is Jesus now an option?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Any religion is permitted.

    2. Nikolai Volkoff
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      religion is the last refuge of a scoundrel

  7. Nikolai Volkoff
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Does Gundog cover DeBeast?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      dePends on who you upgrade.

      1. Nikolai Volkoff
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

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

        1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode

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

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      No

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Does Sir ScottyMcT cover DePenMerchant?

  8. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Pick one:

    A) Sterling + Martial
    B) Rashford + Vardy

    Have KDB and Bruno.

  9. ‘Tis the Season
    • 3 Years

    What do you call a sub for marine?

    1. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Submarine?

  10. Mr Ozil
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Keep or Sell Grealish on a FH?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Do they have a game?

    2. jammie26
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Keep and TC imo.

  11. Champions League Varane
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 18 days 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.

  12. Vazza
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 18 days 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..

  13. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 18 days 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.

  14. yalala

    Captain Laca let's go

  15. balint84
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

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

    1. Salarrivederci
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

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