The Scout Squad’s best players to own for FPL Double Gameweek 19

The Scout Squad are back to pick their best players for Double Gameweek 19 – fresh from the recent changes to the fixtures.

The assets listed will then be narrowed down to a squad of 15 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83.0m) for the weekly Scout Picks selection ahead of the FPL deadline at 11:00 GMT on Saturday.

In each writer’s squad, there are requirements for at least:

  • One goalkeeper costing £5.0m or less
  • One sub-£5.0m defender
  • One midfielder listed at £6.5m or below
  • One forward priced at £7.5m or lower

Each panelist is also restricted to no more than three players from the same team, as is the case in FPL.

We will again be adding a captaincy to the Scout Picks, with details of that revealed on Friday.

Most popular picks: João Cancelo, Vladimir Coufal, Kevin De Bruyne, Bruno Fernandes, Jamie Vardy, Michail Antonio (four), Rúben Dias, Andrew Robertson, Mohamed Salah, Tomas Soucek (three).

TOM SAID…

I’ve doubled up on Manchester City’s defence again this week, ahead of back-to-back home games against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa. Pep Guardiola’s side have now given up just three goals in their last 14 matches in all competitions, and are yet to concede with Ederson, Rúben Dias and John Stones in the line-up. João Cancelo is also given the nod, and though he isn’t assured of two starts, is worth the risk given his attacking numbers. 

West Ham United also get a defensive double-up from me, via Lukasz Fabiański and Vladimír Coufal. The Hammers have proved difficult to break down in recent matches, while their double includes games against Burnley and West Bromwich Albion, two of the worst attacking teams in the league.

Keepers Edouard Mendy and Bernd Leno, plus defenders Andrew Robertson and Ben Chilwell complete the picks at the back.

Further forward, it’s hard to overlook Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah, Bruno Fernandes and Jamie Vardy, and their inclusion needs little explanation, so I’ll focus on some of my other picks.

Ademola Lookman is something of a left-field inclusion given his fixtures, but if Fulham are going to get anything from this double, he’ll be involved, while West London rivals Chelsea are perhaps being overlooked. They’ve come in for some criticism after a run of one win in six league games, but overall performances haven’t been too bad. Hakim Ziyech has now started back-to-back games, and when fit is the one who can make things happen.

I’m also backing Michail Antonio. Though he looks short of match fitness, he needs games, and as West Ham United’s only recognised striker, should see enough minutes across the two fixtures. However, including him means there is no room for team-mate Tomáš Souček, which is a little unfortunate. It goes without saying I think he’s a quality option though.

The squad is completed by Harry Kane and Patrick Bamford, who despite having just the one fixture have the potential to outscore most other forwards this week, plus Anthony Martial

ANDY SAID…

It is not often you come up with a squad to submit and find yourself trying to put in more than three West Ham players. They arguably have the best set of fixtures in Gameweek 19 – Burnley (home) and West Brom (home). 

Michail Antonio is a bit of a favourite of mine and now he’s fit and got through 90 minutes I can’t leave him out. He’s averaging 0.47xG per 90 minutes so fat this season. It’s down on 2019/20, but still excellent given his price. The fixtures are too good to ignore defensively as well. 

No-one has scored fewer goals than Burnley’s nine so far, with West Brom only scoring two more with 11. A double-up on defence is certainly an option but with Tomas Soucek taking up a cheap spot in midfielder I’ve only picked Vladimir Coufal

In their last six matches Coufal has created 11 chances, that’s six more than Aaron Cresswell.

We’re still waiting on news of a potential injury to Anthony Martial after limping off against Burnley, but if he does miss the next couple of games it would seem very likely that Edinson Cavani will play as central forward. 

We’ve seen limited minutes from the Uruguayan so far but he’s shown promising numbers with 0.59xG per 90 minutes. The Liverpool game is tough for anyone but if he could nick a goal there he’d then look to top up the FPL points for the week against Fulham.

There is obviously a risk with picking Aston Villa players because we don’t know who may have tested positive and won’t be available but given they are now playing Newcastle I’ve added a couple into the squad for consideration with Emiliano Martínez and Ollie Watkins

No regularly playing goalkeeper has a higher points per match than Martínez at 5.5, and with save potential against Manchester City followed by a Newcastle fixture you’d expect a clean sheet in there’s lots to be gained from him.

Despite only scoring one goal against Brighton it’s difficult to not triple up on Manchester City again with Kevin De Bruyne being the only attacker I’d be confident of predicting a start for. They are showing no signs of stopping when it comes to defensive returns and I think Cancelo owners will be hopeful of an attacking return soon enough. 

Interestingly he only created one chance against Brighton and had one shot in the box, but seeing his positioning from the eye test, he’s sure to be involved soon.

GEOFF SAID…

Barring any future Double Gameweek 19 fixture changes, my selections come from teams with two fixtures in the round; whether or not my picks will start both fixtures is, as always, unclear.

I continue to look for value in my goalkeepers to enable a stronger attack: Sam Johnstone and Emiliano Martinez are therefore my top picks before I look to Alisson, who has the highest points potential.

Trent Alexander-Arnold looks the best option in defence with hugely promising underlying stats, particularly over the last 4 games. João Cancelo continues to look threatening and should see attacking returns soon, and City have two strong Double Gameweek 19 fixtures. John Stones, Vladimir Coufal, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are also worthwhile options.

Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne are the top midfield picks this week, slightly ahead of Bruno Fernandes and his four yellow cards. Tomas Soucek is a strong pick and will insultingly be called a ‘no-brainer’ by many pundits, while Anwar El Ghazi is another budget enabler.

In attack I first look to Jamie Vardy, who I expect will be fit and will score well – while not a captaincy option for me, as I’ll look to my midfield, he may be a shrewd armband contender for those looking for a punt. Callum Wilson, Ollie Watkins, and Michail Antonio look a nicely-priced trio, while Anthony Martial is a differential for those looking to United for a double in the Double. 

DAVID SAID…

I am expecting Sam Johnstone and Alphonse Areola to use their respective pair of fixtures to rack up the saves in Double Gameweek 19.

The two goalkeepers are both inside the top five for stops this season (74 and 59) and face opponents that are sure to create chances against them.

I will be keeping my eye on injury updates from West Ham on Friday though. If David Moyes rules out Lukasz Fabianski then I will be very keen on the kindly-priced Darren Randolph.

Manchester City have conceded three goals in their last 13 matches in all competitions which is why a defensive double-up of Rúben Dias and João Cancelo is so appealing, especially as I’m not particularly taken with attacking options outside of Kevin De Bruyne.

Vladimir Coufal has incredibly kind home fixtures against low-scoring Burnley and West Bromwich Albion. He has also created more chances than any West Ham player over their last four matches.

Reece James looks set for a return to the Chelsea starting line-up ahead of facing Fulham and Leicester. Over his last four matches, he is joint-top among Blues assets for big chances created, the most of any Chelsea defender in that time too.

De Bruyne is an obvious inclusion considering his nailed-on role in the Manchester City team for those appealing home matches.

The fact that Raheem Sterling missed a late penalty against Brighton, in my view, reinforces the Belgian’s place in the spot-kick pecking order.

Speaking of penalties, Liverpool and Fulham have both given up five each this season – only Leeds (six) and Brighton (seven) have conceded more at the time of writing.

The fact that Bruno Fernandes faces both of those sides in Double Gameweek 19 makes his credentials seriously worth considering, especially as he is set for two road trips. The Portuguese international has pulled in 54.5% of his FPL points away from home this season.

Considering Mohamed Salah’s problems in front of goal recently, I am going for his team-mate Sadio Mané in my selection.

Over their last four matches, the Senegalese international has outshone Salah for touches in the box, key passes, big chances created and shots in the box.

Crucially, Mané also has matched Salah’s output for attacking returns over the same period (three) for a cheaper price and has fewer blanks during that time too.

I am very willing to take a risk on Michail Antonio ahead of West Ham’s appealing fixtures considering their decision to sell Sebastien Haller to Ajax on a permanent deal.

I also really fancy the single Gameweek fixtures of Harry Kane and Patrick Bamford and will be taking them both into Double Gameweek 19 to face Sheffield United (away) and Brighton (home) respectively.

    1. Brosstan
      • 7 Years

    3. Milkman Bruno

    4. Brosstan
      • 7 Years

      Personally Im looking at Vardy and James but would prefer Stones if I werent already maxed on City

      Nice, thanks for the feedback team

  3. Firminoooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is this team(Brewster, Bamford) to week for a BB?

    Martinez Johnstone
    Robertson Chilwell Dias Cancelo Coufal
    Grealish KdB Bruno Salah Soucek
    Antonio Bamford Brewster.

    Could change Brewster to Watkins, but will have to downgrade Cancelo to 4.2 defender.

    1. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Weak*

    2. FantasyHero

    2. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years

      I like the move, very GW19 focused though. You'd want one of them back moving forward

    3. Milkman Bruno
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Have you heard anything about Martials injury? Cavani could be a punt

    4. Aurora Borealis?
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Yeah could do, my only hesitation would be Antonio’s goal sharpeness. Alternatives....maybe Werner, Chelsea have some good fixtures coming up

    5. MGD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I'm doing exactly this

  5. Ibralicious
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 14 days ago

    Who to play between these two? Thinking there's a chance Holding outscores Lowton even with the single GW here?

    A) Holding (NEW-H)
    B) Lowton (WHU-A, LIV-A)

    Cheers!

    1. boombaba

    In need to bench one of the below

    Bamford Kane Son Justin or Coufal

    Justin and Coufal have DGWs...

    Still not sure ? Any ideas ?

  7. Seamy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 14 days ago

    Would you transfer in
    a) Cancelo for his explosiveness but a possibility of rest
    b) Dias for surety of starts
    c) Stones 0.8m value over the other 2

    1. boombaba
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      B to save my blood pressure

    2. Mr. Mystic
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Dias long term, consistent

  8. Mr. Mystic
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 14 days ago

    G2G Friends? 1FT if suggestions?
    Martinez
    Dias Stones Coufal
    Bruno KDB(c) Salah Grealish Son
    Wilson Bamford
    (Holding - Mitchell - Brewster)

    1. Seamy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Yeah you're G2G. Save the FT to rebuild off the back of the GW

      1. Mr. Mystic
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 14 days ago

        Thank you, exactly my thinking

  9. mr messi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 14 days ago

    Is KDB essential for the double? I would have to lose Son.

    1. boombaba
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      No

    2. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Will be heavily captained, but could get rested one game imo.

    3. Mr. Mystic
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Not essential, but he could seriously hurt your rank

    4. Royal5
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Zaha has more points than him so not so sure.

  10. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    just enquiring...

    is everyone still planning to BB this DGW or have peoples plans changed?

    1. Seamy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      They have changed for me. Debating whether or not to play the TC now.
      Should still be fielding 10 DGWers though

    2. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Toying with the KDB(TC) idea but bit worried about potential cancellations.

    3. Mr. Mystic
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Saving all chips due to the uncertainty (even saved FH this week)

    4. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      My team is still good enough despite Leeds and Sou single I believe

      1. Brosstan
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 14 days ago

        for BB

    5. MGD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      I lost Mccarthy and Bamford for the double now, so no i'm keeping.

    thoughts on this:

    Out: DCL, Adams, McCarthy
    In: Watkins, Antonio, Ederson

    Its a -8 and will leave me with triple city def and a bench boost of Johnstone, Soucek, Targett, Coufal

  12. Deulofail
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 14 days ago

    Based on this article, I could see the scout picks looking like this:

    Johnstone
    Dias Cancelo Chilwell
    KDB Bruno Soucek Lookman
    Kane Vardy Antonio

    Lookman could be Coufal instead. Pointless excercise but we all have our hobbies. I'm hungry now.

      Yeah. You're unlikely to have a better bench at any other point of the season. Play it now then you can concentrate of 11 starting players moving forward

      It doesn't feel right does it

    2. Miguel Sanchez

  15. Super Saints

    What would you do here? Leave it, bench boost or triple captain?

    Typically I'm 0.1 off Brewster to Watkins, I can however afford Dias for any of my defenders.

    Not easy to get rid of Grealish and Wilson now they have two matches. So guess I should get a new defender:

    a. Taylor -> Cancelo
    b. Taylor -> Chilwell

    Martínez
    Lowton, Tierney, Coufal
    Son, Salah, Fernandes, Grealish
    Wilson, Bamford, Kane

    Button, Taylor, Burke, Douglas

    Which move to take a hit for?

    A) Kane, Saka -> Salah, Brewster (Bench)
    B) Kane, Taylor -> Vardy, Cancelo/Chilwell
    C) Kane, Rashford -> Vardy, Sterling

    Thoughts on WC team please..

    Martinez
    Chillwell / Stones / Coufal
    KDB (C) / Salah / Soucek / Bruno
    Vardy / Watkins / Antonio

    Bench: Forster, ESR, Ampadu, Mitchell

      looks good imo, maybe Cancelo over Chilwell

      Looks good. I would go Dias over Stones though

    Jesus, i dont know what to do. If i have 3 Leeds Players, Kane, Son and DCL i guess i dont bench boost now?

      depends on your whole team, but probably not

    Hi guys.
    I'm all set to get the BB out of the way, but the Leeds postponement was a kick in the nuts.
    1.8m ITB, 1FT

    Martinez (DDG)
    Dias, Stones, Coufal (Dallas, Zouma)
    KDB, Bruno, Son, Soucek (Raphinia)
    Bamford, Vardy, Antonio

    A) Raphinia -> El Gazi
    B) DDG & Raphinia -> Johnstone & Pogba/Grealish (-4)
    C) Save FT
    D) Anything else?

    Cheers all

      C I think

  24. luk46

    8 months, 14 days ago

    with Villa having a dgw, would you still do the following?

    Son + Grealish + Adams > KDB + Soucek + Antonio (-8)

    1. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Cant say I'm ever too keen on a -8 where you lose 2 players as good as Son and Grealish

      1. luk46
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 14 days ago

        true, I just think KDB captain will easily equal the -8... wouldnt like to lose both really, still got much upside tho

    2. 2OLEgend
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 14 days ago

      No from me. Adams -> Antonio is good enough

      1. luk46
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 14 days ago

        good point as well, just so scarerd to not have KDB for their dgw, cant lie...

    Anyone triple capping for the double? I'm tempted by KDB. Hmmmm.

  26. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 14 days ago

    Which one of the following would u make??

    A) McCarthy ------> Martinez

    B) McCarthy ------> Mendy

    C) Dier ------> Dias (already have Stones)

    D) Dier ------> Creswell

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      C

    2. 2OLEgend
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 14 days ago

      A as it is a good long term pick and Martinez got a double afterall

    3. Il Capitano
      8 months, 14 days ago

      C

  27. sminkypinky

    In a bit of a crossroad:

    Martinez Steer
    Stones Dias Robbo Zouma Dallas
    Salah Bruno Soucek Grealish Son
    DCL Bamford Brewster

    A) play safe: Son + DCL-> Kdb+Antonio (bench Bam)
    B) go big: DCL+Brewster+Steer -> Antonio+Wilson+Fabianski (BB without Kdb)

    Big decision! Opinions needed, please.

    1. sminkypinky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      B is for -8 mind

      1. sminkypinky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 14 days ago

        Anyone?

    2. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      A. Save the bb for your 2nd wc.

      1. sminkypinky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 14 days ago

        Cheers mate. B is just so appealing but I get your point.

  28. Forever In Our Shadow
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Antonio. Worth a hit? Part of getting Salah in for Laca and Son?

    1. sminkypinky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Defo worth the risk imo

    2. 2OLEgend
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 14 days ago

      Yes!

    3. Tomerick
      • 7 Years

  29. Il Capitano
    8 months, 14 days ago

    WC16 FH18 BB19 chump here. Need some City in. Robbo to Stones and Son to KDB for - 4 could be a decent way to fix that or could just do Dallas to Stones and go without KDB?

    Tempted to still use my BB, not sure if I'll have a stronger bench than this further down the line.
