Scout Squad

The Scout Squad’s best players for FPL Double Gameweek 24

Players with two fixtures in Double Gameweek 24 unsurprisingly dominate the Scout Squad selections this time round but Manchester United assets are heavily backed, too, ahead of the Red Devils’ meeting with a porous West Bromwich Albion side.

For those new to this feature, Fantasy Football Scout editor David, deputy editor Neale, video content manager Andy and Pro Pundit Tom each put forward an 18-man long-list of players and explain their notable inclusions and omissions below.

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.

DAVID SAID

I am hoping the Burnley defence will be well-staffed enough to perform well in Double Gameweek 24.

Fulham and Crystal Palace are inside the bottom five for big chances and shots on target over the last six matches, so I cannot see them asking too many questions of the Clarets.

James Tarkowski is my chosen option from Burnley’s back four considering the Cottagers and Eagles are the two worst clubs for conceding headed efforts in the last six matches.

Ben Mee has registered one more of these than Tarkowski over the period in question but the latter has enjoyed more of the bigger chances and, accordingly, has a higher expected goals (xG) figure than his colleague.

As a result, I am also including set-piece taker Ashley Westwood in my selection considering he takes Burnley’s corners and free-kicks – and has more key passes than any other colleague over the last six matches.

I am expecting João Cancelo to enjoy significant game-time for Manchester City in the Double Gameweek considering the strength of the upcoming opponents.

The versatile full-back has been handed rests in Wednesday’s FA Cup win over Swansea as well as in the first match of Double Gameweek 19 and Gameweek 21.

Operating in an auxiliary central midfield role when Manchester City are in possession, or a more concrete one in light of recent injuries, Cancelo has the best figure for expected goal involvement (xGI) of any defensive colleague over the last four matches.

Yerry Mina is Everton’s most aerially threatening defender and could benefit from Fulham’s aforementioned problems defending set pieces. Not to mention the fact that no team has scored fewer goals over the last 12 Premier League matches than the Cottagers (six).

In light of Callum Wilson’s injury, I fancy a clean sheet for Chelsea’s defence this weekend. Under Thomas Tuchel they have conceded just one goal in four matches, Antonio Rüdiger featuring for 90 minutes each time.

While some are concerned about Ilkay Gündogan playing a deeper role if Fernandinho and Rodri aren’t fit in time for Double Gameweek 24, the fact that he has a strong hand in the Manchester City penalty situation encourages me enough to keep him in a prominent place in my Scout Squad selection.

Raheem Sterling has been an effective asset recently too. He has scored in each of his last three Premier League starts and should earn significant game-time in Double Gameweek 24 considering Pep Guardiola managed his minutes in the FA Cup and Gameweek 21.

Bruno Fernandes has a plum fixture this week even if it’s only just one match to play in. West Bromwich Albion have conceded at least twice in each of their last eight Premier League matches.

That’s why I am also including Edinson Cavani. He was rested in the FA Cup and has three goals across his last four league starts.

Only two top-flight players have more shots on target than Patrick Bamford over the last four matches so I can see his encouraging form continuing as Leeds visit Brighton.

Josh King is my outside bet at capitalising on the Everton attack. Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s recent muscle injury means a spot could open up for the Norwegian international in Double Gameweek 24.

NEALE SAID…

My Scout Squad selection is built on shifting sands, with the glut of yellow flags that greeted Fantasy managers after the FA Cup fifth-round ties on Wednesday evening throwing many of our Double Gameweek plans – and this long-list – into turmoil.

With this feature being written before many of the Premier League managers have faced the media, there are a number of caveats to raise: Dominic Calvert-Lewin would make my picks over Richarlison if fit, while Ruben Dias would have been in the shake-up had a stomach illness not laid him low in midweek.

Mohamed Salah may even enter the thinking if James Justin and Timothy Castagne are ruled out, with a sudden dearth of fit left-backs at Leicester City making the Egyptian’s task a lot easier this weekend.

Double Gameweek picks naturally abound, with many of them self-explanatory.

Alphonse Areola, who boasts the second-best expected goals prevented total among Premier League goalkeepers this season, and Ademola Lookman, who features in the top ten midfielders for both goal attempts and chances created over the last six Gameweeks, perhaps require a bit more explaining, but even the Fulham duo are at the conservative end of the maverick scale.

Ashley Barnes is the Double Gameweeker I’m least convinced about in my selection, given that he is part of a Clarets side who have scored fewer goals than any other team this season, and that lack of faith seems him placed below even the misfiring Timo Werner in my forwards list.

On the subject of Werner, I’ve seen merest glimpses of what the German can offer since Thomas Tuchel’s appointment. Playing in the ‘left-sided number 10’ position that far better suits his skillset, he has played a part in three goals in as many appearances under his new boss. With this new-look and injury-hit Newcastle doing their best impression of the mid-90s Entertainers and leaving spaces at the back, I’m backing the German to end his goal drought on Monday.

The lack of Callum Wilson also leads me to plump for Antonio Rudiger, part of a Chelsea backline that still hasn’t been breached by an opposition player under Tuchel.

Favourable fixtures for Manchester United and West Ham United make the attack-minded, corner-taking left-backs Luke Shaw and Aaron Cresswell no-brainer selections, with in-form strikers Edinson Cavani and Michail Antonio no doubt licking their lips at facing such obliging opposition this weekend.

TOM SAID…

Nick Pope is the key goalkeeper to own in Double Gameweek 24 in my opinion, providing he is fit. The 28-year-old tends to pick up bonus when Burnley stop their opponents from scoring, and is averaging 4.9 points per match this season. Given that the Clarets have the best double, at least on paper, it makes sense to add a defender, too. There isn’t much to choose between Matthew Lowton, James Tarkowski and Ben Mee, but I’ve opted for the latter, with opponents Crystal Palace and Fulham conceding plenty of headed attempts of late.

Meanwhile, I’ve also selected Alphonse Areola, João Cancelo and Lucas Digne at the back, who all play twice. Rúben Dias is unfortunate to miss out but having been flagged last night, a rested Cancelo feels like the safer pick, at least for now.

Single Gameweek options Edouard Mendy and Vladimír Coufal are also included, plus Luke Shaw, who is now one of Manchester United’s most important attacking outlets.

Further forward, Raheem Sterling and İlkay Gündoğan are obvious inclusions in midfield. The England winger has been ticking over nicely in recent weeks and has now scored three goals in his last three league appearances. The fact Pep Guardiola likes to start him in tougher games is also appealing. However, his team-mate Gündoğan looks an equally good option this week, providing he retains his attacking no. 8 role in light of Rodri’s injury.

Everton duo James Rodríguez and Dominic Calvert-Lewin also get the nod, on the condition that they are both available. With the forwards’ supply line back in place, he has now scored twice and registered 21 FPL points over the last two Gameweeks, and looks like the pick of the attacking candidates this week.

Elsewhere, Timo Werner’s new position under Thomas Tuchel has been a key reason behind some improved performances. Now being deployed more centrally, rather than as a winger, it’s helping him find more space and generally look much more threatening in the final third. He’s missing goals at the minute but provided both assists at Sheffield United, and you get the feeling this positional change can get the best out of him.

Bruno Fernandes, Bukayo Saka, Michail Antonio (if fit) and Edinson Cavani all look like excellent single Gameweek-ers, with the final forward spot going to Ashley Barnes. The 31-year-old was thrown straight back into the starting XI against Brighton and Hove Albion last time out, having missed a few games through injury. It was a promising return, and though his ceiling is quite low considering Burnley don’t score many, the fact he has two games means I’m happy enough to punt on him.

ANDY SAID…

I think it’s difficult to find a differential in and amongst the Double Gameweek 24 players. Most people will likely have three Manchester City players, at least one Burnley defensive asset, and then Dominic Calvert-Lewin – if he’s fit.

That’s why I’ve chosen Raheem Sterling as I think he’s someone people can’t get to easily. A 3.23 non-penalty expected goals over the last six weeks shows he’s getting chances, and only Michail Antonio can beat that over the period studied. It is worth noting that Ilkay Gündogan has the highest expected goal involvement (5.33) out of any player over the same timeframe, so he can’t be left out, which is why I’ve just gone for the one Manchester City defender.

Even without a Double Gameweek, it’s impossible to leave Bruno Fernandes out of the squad. He’s still performing well with 4.41 expected goal involvement over the last six. More importantly, he’s facing the worst defence in the league, and has just had a bit of a rest in the FA Cup.

I’ve added both David De Gea and Luke Shaw to the squad based on the fixture. No defender has created more chances (14) than Shaw in their last six matches. If there’s one team to target outside of Double Gameweeks, it’s Manchester United.

The Burnley defence has perhaps not been as good as we’ve come to expect so far this season. Since Ben Mee came back into the side in Gameweek 8 they’ve kept six clean sheets in 16 matches. Maybe, more importantly, one of their opponents, Crystal Palace, have the fewest amount of shots in the last six matches at 24. Fulham are performing a little better with 48, but have only managed to score against one team in the last four matches, which was the aforementioned West Brom defence.

        Cavani for the baggies game looks very appealing.. I haven't looked any further ahead though.

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Why not further ahead? Rotation?

            He's as nailed as it gets now. Tony is pathetic

              Exactly, so wondering what's the downside? Probably United are somehow unpredictable at times on their performance.

              1. Amey
                • 2 Years
                4 months, 3 days ago

                They're doing excellent. I'm also looking at this.
                Probably Kane 7m Midfielder vs Cavani Son is the choice I'm thinking about

                1. Magic Zico

                  • 2 Years
                  4 months, 3 days ago

                  Marvellous got Son already and Cavani for either Antonio or DCL whoever is out will be my transfer this week

      • Jellyfish
        • 9 Years

        FH or for a hit?

      • RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Wait for Kane? What are your other options?

        1. Big_Andy_GAWA
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Having 3 x United players already is an issue...!

    6. DK_13
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 3 days ago

      The worst thing about spurs villa in gw 29 is they have doubles in 26 + great fixtures in 27 and 28 too. FH holders will already have them too(and everyone will probably have a couple of Leeds too).

      1. jammie26
          4 months, 3 days ago

          So that's good then?

          1. DK_13
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 3 days ago

            That's crap for people who have all the chips. Awesome for those without FH

        • diesel001
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          3 Villa + 3 Spurs isn't a great combo when they play each other.....

          1. FPL Pillars
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 3 days ago

            It’s fine in a BGW

          2. DK_13
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 3 days ago

            Free hitters will have a couple of each too probably. So it's more than fine given they don't have a chip

          3. Yes Ndidi
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 3 days ago

            It's fine if they're not defenders.

      2. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        So far 29 getting better for those who already played FH chip?

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Yes, hopefully villa or spurs go on a rotten run of form so people have to bring in non performing players just to get a team out in 29

        2. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Absolutely.

          FT to throw in a Brighton defender and the Free Hits should be fairly well covered.

        3. Kabayan
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Still can use it in possible dgw27/28 or use it in bgw33.

        4. AC/DC AFC
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Not if you want Man City and United players etc in gw27, 28 etc.

      3. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Initial thoughts on these moves? 1FT, 6.6itb.

        A. Robbo >> Tarko/Mee
        B. Son/Soucek >> Salah/Jrod/Rashford

        Be wary if Wildcarding this GW or even next if fixtures aren’t 100% confirmed.

        In years past, people have wildcarded due to fixtures they thought had a high % of being put in a certain GW, only to be bit on the arse.

        Ben Crellin’s spreadsheets can be very helpful but he’s not always spot on.

          He's been pretty on point this year though. And he's doing it in the perspective of the league, there just arent enough TV slots for doubles rest of the way with European competitions renewing

        Those considering Ings for double, are you not concerned by the fact that CHE has not conceded a goal from an opponent under Tuchel?

        1. Scholes Out Forever
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Chelsea wont concede until they do

          Besides likely to be a punt for everyone and placeholder for Kane

        2. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Yeah they’ll never concede again

          4 months, 3 days ago

          Burnley with no Chris Wood & Wolves with no Jiminez were two lovely negative teams for them to face first up

          They looked human enough vs SHeffield united’s pressing,

          They haven’t faced a forward of Ings calibre yet, and Southampton will press hem more than Sheffield did

          1. doher.ty

              Wilsonless Newcastle is a great fixture as well.

                Toffes are awful defensively atm. Their win vs Spurs & draw vs United were hit and grab IMO. Nothing against Everton at all but just saying it's an easy draw as always. I'm surprised they didn't get Bournemouth.

                Can't if involved teams are in Europe as well ...
                That's the issue why Ben Crelin is so confident about 26 being huge DGW especially for European clubs

            Pope is OK the only significant news today.

            Will be very interesting if Alonso becomes a key player for Tuchel. Especially if Chelsea are successful. Would be damaging for Lampard's tactical judgement.

              Is he not signalling Chilwell gets the Newcastle start by going with Alonso tonight?

                4 months, 3 days ago

                I don't know. Maybe Alonso doesn't really get a significant workout tonight if he is playing CB (it is Barnsley) and so is fine for Newcastle. Or they know it will be a DGW and so it is rotation time.

            Love watching Salah price drop, I just know the badgers who took him out gonna be on here over the weekend!

            "of course Salah scores a brace when I take him out, brought him in and captained vs Brighton and now this, what a season"

            It is incoming just wait.... gonna link this post on everyone I see!!

                It's the opposite. The Salah holders have been the ones suffering. 1 double digit return in 8 games.

                woth many not captaining him over coming weeks I think cashing in kind of make sense if you can get Kane Son Sterling Bruno etc all in together

                I have kept him and managed to move up OR, ofc rank was crap and is now slightly less crap.

                  • 4 Years

                  The advantage of FH on 26 😎

              The template will become even more templatey. Glad Kane and Vardy have returned to bring more excitement

                • 4 Years

                Kane in every team in two weeks time.

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  4 months, 3 days ago

                  Hopefully that requires players to drop one of Son, Salah or Bruno.

                  • 4 Years

                    Doubt he'll play it - maybe late run out

              2. doher.ty
                  4 months, 3 days ago

                  I'm going to try to go off the TP as much as I can on the WC. Take some risks and hope for the best.

                • Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  4 months, 3 days ago

                  Really? I feel like the best teams going in now are somewhat off-template.

                  The Sterling - Gundo - Ings type teams have an advantage.

                  1. Camzy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    4 months, 3 days ago

                    Minus Gundo plus Kane.

                  2. Flair
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    4 months, 3 days ago

                    Just that it looks like the template will be heavily focused on Villa, Spurs, City and Bruno which doesn't leave much room for anything else.

                • 5 Years

                Barnsley priced at 12 to 1 to win at home to Chelsea.

                None free hitters may want to back it for double returns all round?!

                  Looks to be 2 or 3 weeks at least.

                Anyone else going to BB24, WC25, TC26? Will allow me 5 from Leeds / Southampton in 25 and then transfer 1 to Watkins to get out 11 DGW’s and TC Kane. Good foundation for 29 too with Triple Villa, Kane, Son and 2/3 Leeds

                  lots were but FA Cup possible injuries have decimated many a potential BB this week - will probably depend on DCL/Antonio news for many

                  1. AC/DC AFC
                    • 5 Years
                    4 months, 3 days ago

                    Isn't DCL out and Antonio a reasonable possibility.

                • 8 Years
                4 months, 3 days ago

                Any thoughts on what to use transfers this week, was thinking Robbo/Mitchell >Digne/Lowton but now people are saying DCL might be out the Fulham game, can’t think which is best
                Still got WC, BB & TC

                Pope,
                Cancelo, Dias, Robbo
                Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Gundo (C)
                DCL, Antonio

                Martinez, Soucek, Dallas, Mitchell

                2 FT 4.2 ITB.

                Best DCL replacement? I suppose it's worth keeping hold of Digne as it he only had a bug?

                  • 6 Years
                  4 months, 3 days ago

                  Digne seemed to have a limp

                  I think dias has the bug...

                To play?

                Antonio or Bamford

                Captain?

                Dcl or gundogan

                  Need injury news for those calls tomorrow.

                  Antonio, DCL and Rodrigo flagged.

                  Gunco (c) if not playing DM though probably unless you fancy a Burnley def punt.

                  Not nailed but seems preferred.
