Scoutcast Episode 361 – More fixture changes add to Double Gameweek 19 challenges

Joe and Seb are joined by Karam to discuss the key issues affecting Fantasy Premier League managers in Double Gameweek 19.

Just days after mulling over Blank Gameweek 18’s issues, Joe, Seb and Karam are back again to take the next set of fixtures to task.

Southampton’s rearranged FA Cup clash with Shrewsbury has one of the biggest impacts. This means the Saints encounter with Leeds has been mothballed and both top flight sides have just a single fixture.

Where does this leave FPL managers looking to bench boost the likes of Patrick Bamford (£6.6m) and Che Adams (£6.0m)? Our trio take a look at the pros and cons of deploying this chip on single Gameweek assets.

Meanwhile the Everton and Villa game is off. So, there’s a blank for the Toffees. But Villa still have a double. They play Manchester City then Newcastle, as the Magpies game has now been shoehorned into Gameweek 19’s schedule.

Villa assets continue to be viable options, however, it remains to be seen how the Covid-19 infection that has swept through the club has affected its first team.

During the show Joe, Seb and Karam reveal their Gameweek 19 transfer plans and address the other important topics to help prepare FPL managers for this extended batch of games.

Is this a good week to use the Triple Captain chip? Which defenders should be brought in? And can West Ham star Michail Antonio (£6.2m)’s legs make it through the week?

As this latest episode was streamed during Thuesday night’s match between Arsenal and Crystal Palace, emotions were running high regarding the Scoutcast crew’s Gameweek 18 plans. They reveal how that set of limited fixtures impacted on their campaign.

There’s also fixtures to frisk, Seb attempts to describe a heat map and Joe has to eat humble pie regarding the Sheffield United defence.

      B) Might be doing it also. I don't trust any hits involving Antonio.

    Is Lacazette & Mitchell -> Antonio & Chilwell for -4 worth the Antonio-risk?

    1. HaffNanner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Rather a Man City def than Chilwell

    Guys, does selling Wilson for Antonio make sense ??

    1. DP7657
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      I don't think so, unless you need to free up those funds for something significant.

  8. JJO

    People talking about KDB exausted have you ever play any kind of football?
    Thats not general exaustion they are talking about.
    Its about running for 90+mins + that sprint at the end that actually caused the penalty.
    He was tired in that particular moment when penalty was about to be taken,so he let it to Sterling to take it(he was fresh and needed it for his confidence).
    Its hard to be concentrated,focused and shot it properly when you are tired.

      Why are u even explaining lollll

  9. sp1122
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Worth for a -8 for Taylor to Stones/ Cresswell and/or DCL to Antonio

    Current team without changes is:
    Martinez, Steer
    Robbo, Bednerak, Dallas, Zouma
    Salah (Potential TC), Bruno, Foden, Grealish
    Kane, Bamford

    Bench: Steer, Taylor, Anguissa, DCL

  10. Gorky
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Bench one:

    A) Bamford
    B) Justin
    C) Zouma

    At moment I've benched Bamford and playing 5-4-1

    1. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      I'd play Bamford, You'd need a cleanie to make up for it imo.
      If not Bam, I'd bench Justin.

  11. Mahjongking
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Anybody double up manc midfielders?

    1. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Considering Pogba actually.
      Rash also an option.

      1. Mahjongking
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 15 days ago

        Manc not manutd loll

  12. ABCDEFC
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Better move?
    A) Kane, Son, Balbuena to Antonio, KDB, Stones (-8)
    B) Kane and Balbuena to Vardy and Stones (-4)

    1. ABCDEFC
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Also means playing Son with a SGW

    2. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      I doubt I would move Kane, even for KDB.

  13. tomasjj
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Could do with a bit of advice.

    Moving Neto and Robinson or KWP to:
    a) Soucek + Stones
    b) Stones + Thiago
    or
    c) KDB + Stones - Salah out

    Mendy
    Dias, Robbo, Coufal, KWP, Strujik
    Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Neto, Anguissa
    Vardy, Wilson, Bamford

    Will shift Wilson next week.

  14. arkom
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Foden or Barnes?

    Short term / next GW.

    1. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Foden is hot, and they have great fixtures, but then there is pep roulette.
      Sterling, Jesus knocking.

  15. arkom
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Is Fabianski fit to play?

  16. Thunder Warrior
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Gtg?
    Johnstone
    Coufal James Dias
    Son Sterling Foden Salah Fernandes
    Antonio Bamford

    Anyone else considering Bamford as he doesn't have a DGW.
    I'd like to keep him long term but it's not like he's been scoring big points in the many weeks I've owned him. He ticks along nicely, but seems to be avoiding big hauls even when Leeds have scored 5 goals in a game.

    I think I'll bring in Antonio if I do move him on...

    1. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      * selling Bamford

    2. nisag17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      No. Bamford stays. He is a gem. By far the best budget fwd in the game.

  18. Space Cadete
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    TAA + DCL out for Cancelo + Werner (-8). Yay or Nay?

    1. Arthur Shelby
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      It's a no from me, Clive.

  19. CBS
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 15 days ago

    Bamford to Antonio?

    Yes or no

    1. Arthur Shelby
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      Probably not.

  20. Arthur Shelby
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 15 days ago

    By order of the Peaky f***ing Blinders, I order to you to assist me with my Draft dilemma (I'll lend a hand in return).

    Need to play 2 and bench 2 of this lot:

    Maguire (liv, ful) - yellow against Liverpool would suspend him against Fulham
    Saiss (WBA) - SGW, so obvious bench candidate, but it's WBA...
    Wood (whu, liv) - dull and steady
    Zinchenko (CPL, AVL) - will most likely start one, not both

  21. Mahjongking
