The FPL Round-up: Shaw’s assists, Double Gameweek auditions and Maja’s brace

Our Scout Notes round-up summarises Sunday’s top-flight action and key Fantasy Premier League talking points.

GOALS, ASSISTS AND BONUS

MAJA-STIC

.

There always seems to be at least one name that emerges from low-owned anonymity to haul in a Double Gameweek.

Josh Maja (£5.5m) did just that on Sunday evening, scoring twice at Goodison Park on his full Fulham debut as a flat, Dominic Calvert-Lewin-less (£7.7m) Everton were beaten 2-0.

Owned and started by little more than 1,000 Fantasy Premier League managers, the deadline-day signing banked 13 points in part one of the Cottagers’ Gameweek 24 double-header.

Both goals were poacher’s strikes from point-blank range, with the on-loan striker reacting quickest to convert a low centre from Ola Aina (£4.5m) and then tap home a rebound after Harrison Reed‘s (£4.4m) shot hit the upright.

All three players who delivered attacking returns are owned by 0.5% of FPL managers or less.

Fulham, so defensively sound over the last 13 Gameweeks, have missed a natural goal-getter more than anything: the Cottagers have created more chances (213) than the likes of Spurs, Leicester and West Ham this season, just haven’t had anyone to stick the ball in the net.

Three shots – two of them converted – from inside the six-yard box against Everton suggests the loanee has an eye for goal (even if his record at Bordeaux doesn’t) and he is a name to monitor in FPL, with two clubs who are averse to clean sheets up next for Fulham in Gameweeks 25 and 26.

A guaranteed match for Scott Parker’s troops in Blank Gameweek 29 – plus a Double Gameweek in the pipeline – are also ticks next to his name.

As for the Toffees, this was grim and Wednesday’s match against the meanest defence in town doesn’t bode well for the underwhelming Gameweek 24 scores logged by the likes of Lucas Digne (£6.1m) so far.

While Calvert-Lewin may return in that fixture, there is a fresh concern over James Rodriguez (£7.7m):

SAINTS SLUMP

One of two teams who have a Double Gameweek 25, Southampton aren’t putting in much of an audition for Fantasy managers.

Their sixth defeat in a row was handed out to them by Wolves on Sunday, with second-half goals from Ruben Neves (£5.1m) – his third penalty in seven Gameweeks – and the brilliant Pedro Neto (£5.7m) leaving them empty-handed.

Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) kept his place over Fraser Forster (£4.0m) but again didn’t come close to registering a clean sheet, while the loss of the returning Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.7m) to a hamstring injury is a further blow to a backline that has little in reserve at full-back.

Further forward, we saw another ‘out of position’ run-out up front for Nathan Redmond (£6.4m) and a benching for Che Adams (£5.8m), neither of whom has shown much conviction in front of goal of late.

Danny Ings (£8.4m) is an altogether more clinical finisher and he ended a four-game drought with a spectacular volley from a Stuart Armstrong (£5.5m) cross.

Even he might be a bit of a tough sell for the upcoming Double Gameweek given the glut of cheaper options available in attack.

On top of that, Saints have scored just six Premier League goals in the last 13 Gameweeks, fewer than any other club, and one of their Double Gameweek 25 fixtures is against a Chelsea side yet to concede a goal to an opposition player under Thomas Tuchel.

LUKE WHOSE ASSISTING

The FPL Round-up: 5

West Bromwich Albion became the third team in the relegation zone to breach Manchester United’s defence in the last six Gameweeks, with Mbaye Diagne‘s (£6.0m) early header ruining the Red Devils’ clean sheet prospects in Gameweek 24.

The loss of a shut-out didn’t stop Luke Shaw (£5.0m) from racking up a tidy score, however, with the corner-taking left-back registering his fourth assist in three matches with a cross for Bruno Fernandes‘ (£11.5m) equaliser.

Shaw again led the way for chances created (four) in this fixture, taking his total to 34 over the last 13 Gameweeks – only Jack Grealish (£7.8m) has provided more opportunities in that time. The left-back’s creativity, indeed, played a big part in him securing maximum bonus at the Hawthorns.

With Anthony Martial (£8.7m) anonymous, Marcus Rashford (£9.6m) looking out of place on the right flank and Edinson Cavani (£8.0m) not managing a single shot, it was again left to Fernandes to spare United’s blushes.

There’s little left to be said about the Portuguese playmaker but this was a landmark day of sorts, as it marked the 38th Premier League appearance for the United number 18.

Fernandes has racked up 41 attacking returns and 295 points in that full season’s worth of run-outs – only eight short of Mohamed Salah‘s (£12.6m) record total in 2017/18.

BARGAIN MBAYE

The FPL Round-up: 6

It’s too early to judge if West Brom, who finally featured the full complement of Sam Allardyce signings, have turned a corner despite an improved showing from the Baggies’ backline.

An attractive upcoming fixture list against four clubs in the bottom seven likely won’t even be enough for many of us to consider Albion assets, although Diagne was a lively presence in attack and had the beating of United’s lumbering two centre-halves time and time again.

Diagne now has three attacking returns in four Gameweeks for the Baggies and had two glorious chances to win the match late on, spurning both from around six yards out.

He’ll struggle to compete with the abundance of other £6.0m+ forwards in FPL for popularity but it wouldn’t be a shock to see him net a goal or two over the next four Gameweeks – providing he can get the hang of the offside rule.

PIERRE PRESSURE

The FPL Round-up: 7

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m) hit his highest-ever single Gameweek score on Sunday, bagging a hat-trick in Arsenal’s 4-2 win over Leeds United.

Such has been his fall from favour in the FPL world, it’ll have mostly been ‘dead teams’ who benefitted from his 20-point haul: only 0.02% of the top 10k owned the Gabonese forward in Gameweek 24.

Aubameyang’s treble included assists from increasingly popular budget buys Emile Smith Rowe (£4.3m) and Bukayo Saka (£5.3m), with Hector Bellerin (£5.1m) also getting in on the goalscoring act.

The Gunners’ tough upcoming fixture schedule will dampen interest in Mikel Arteta’s side but many of us have Leeds on the brain ahead of the Whites’ Double Gameweek 25.

LOSING LEEDS

The FPL Round-up: 8

It’s feast or famine with Marcelo Bielsa’s side, who are just as capable of producing a swaggering attacking display as they are of capitulating at the back – often in the same game.

The Whites have recorded a respectable seven clean sheets this season; the problem is, they concede at a rate of 2.6 goals per match when they don’t shut the opposition out.

Stuart Dallas (£4.9m) and Ezgjan Alioski (£4.4m) ended up with negative scores on Sunday as Illan Meslier (£4.7m) turned in a horror show between the posts.

The picture is a lot rosier going forward, however. Even on a day when Patrick Bamford (£6.8m) and co didn’t really hit top gear, Bielsa’s troops still scored twice.

Raphinha (£5.3m) is looking very hard to ignore for the Double Gameweek: his assist for Pascal Struijk‘s (£3.9m) headed goal at the Emirates was his ninth attacking return in ten Gameweeks.

A boost for our Leeds assets in Double Gameweek 25 would be the return of the injured Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m). The Whites have lost four in a row without their influential midfielder, conceding 13 goals in the process.

    Would you keep Cavani for Newcastle and then transfer to Kane for 26?

    A Yes
    B no get Ings for 25 double and then move to Kane
    C just get Kane now

      It's tough because Newcastle are so bad.ManUtd could score 4-5 goals.But i would watch Che-New tomorrow.I think i would go with B.

      did you just get him in?
      i'm the same and keeping for newcastle then moving to Kane
      I thought about bypassing cavani and just bringing ings in advance (already returned) but took the chance
      Kane not needed vs WHU
      also depends if you need to bring in Leeds players who are higher priority (like me)

      Better wc combo?
      a) Watkins and Son
      b) Ings and Grealish/Maddison

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        A but I would like Madds and I own Ings

      2. Thomas Magnum
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Tough choice, B imo as its more consistent. Grealish out of the 2 you mentioned as he is slated to have a better dgw and more games

      3. waldo666
        • 10 Years

      Don't do this often but any thoughts on this mess?
      Mccarthy 4.0
      TAA Stones Dias Targett Mitchell
      Salah Son Bruno Grealish Soucek
      Bamford Antonio Watkins
      Have all chips available and 1.2itb. Is there any way I can navigate this DGW with transfers or do I cut my loses and hit the WC and reset, obviously selling TAA will be a big start though

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Soucek to Gund is a must as you only have 2 city players
        TAA to Dunk who has good fixtures short term (or Shaw)
        Wouldn't trust McCarthy myself even on dgw - too many good options out there but think you can navigate with a -4 at least another week

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Appreciate the response!
          I agree, especially with the Soucek to Gund transfer, just hope it doesnt come out as Gundo is going to be out for a while once I bring him in

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            i know the feeling as i went kdb to sterling instead of gund
            looking at reversing that soon to fund kane

      2. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        TAA out now for Dallas?
        Soucek to Gundo

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Thanks, I've seen they're both slated to rise soon so will move quick!

    • COVID-CASUAL
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Really need R James to play to avoid Dallas -1 after a bit of a bench stuff-up, everything else after that is just a bonus.

        As my biggest differential he's generally been a drag on my team but this could be his time to shine.

        80% confident he plays. I think not starting the FA Cup tie and then coming on at HT to provide the goal is probably a good thing. But coming on at HT could have also been pre- planned because he's not nailed.

            If you could have D who would you?

                Foden probably.

      • MikeS
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        £3.5mn itb and 2ft, what would you do?

        As above Justin to Shaw seems a good move, what about the other transfer should I try get raphina too? Then I could do Antonio to Kane the week after..

        Martinez (areola)
        Dallas-mee-dias(stones, Justin)
        Son-bruno-salah-gundogan-grealish
        Ings-bamford-(Antonio)

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          i would prefer raphinha over dallas but triple leeds is probably overkiill
          if you do justin to shaw, will you play 4 at the back? if so, best to roll transfer and have 2ft for Kane in 26. Dallas to Dunk maybe

          1. MikeS
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            I'm not sure tbh, I think I would! Or play Shaw instead of mee. Other option is a saints defender. Do you think I can get away without WC for the Incoming dgw's?

            1. HMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              yes would hold wc for now
              i'm trying to hold off myself and don't own kane or leeds yet (or Gund)
              wondering if i can navigate with a couple of transfers / small hits

          2. MikeS
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Could go grealish to raphina, but then grealish might have a dgw..

          • 10 Years

          Looks good, Antonio moves to the bench in that case?

          1. fcsaltyballs
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Yes I think so.

            Would you suggest using the other FT or saving it?

            I’m planning on BB26

            1. waldo666
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Not too sure tbh, Robbo could easily go for mine if you were to use it, Robbo to Dallas could work out nicely.

              1. fcsaltyballs
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                I know! Robertson has been crap but reluctant to lose a player that doubles in 26.

                I may do Coufal or Ferguson to Dallas and play over Robertson this week.

                1. waldo666
                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 25 days ago

                  Yeah, that could also work.

            1 month, 25 days ago

            If he had a DGW, I think it would be pulling into the station for passengers to embark.

              Which is a very sad sign of points chasing

                  My observation from a few months here, is the main determinant for anyone questions or answers, is last weeks points.

              Won't play Leeds every day. Still in the station I'd expect.

            • 5 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Ings or DCL?

            I think the DCL fixtures may edge it if the predicted double go ahead.

            1. MikeS
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Ings.. better player

            2. COVID-CASUAL
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Wait to see if DCL even fit, plus confirmation of fixtures.

                I'd hold DCL if I still owned him, but I wouldn't get him if I didn't own him at this stage

                1. Thomas Magnum
                  • 5 Years

                • 5 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Depends on the DGW fixtures. Apparently theres a higher chance Everton get Villa as their second fixture and not WBA in which case I wouldnt want DCL

                sounds good, I would wait until end of the week to make it though if their prices arent going to change

              Better option before prices rises?
              A) Dallas
              B) Dunk/White
              Dallas oop and a double this week but Brighton seem to be much better defensively and have the better single gameweek next week

                Dallas but definitely a case for Brighton def.

              Thoughts on these moves?

              Chilwell to Ayling
              Antonio to Bamford -4

              I cant afford Dallas because it blocks Kane in GW 26. I could go Struijk but bringing in this Leeds defender is part of my BGW 29 plans and Im not confident Struijk will still be a starter in GW 29.

                Seems okay. Ayling has decent underlying stats but it hasn't come to fruition yet

                  Yeah I noticed this too. Although this is mainly because he was playing full back for the last few games. He was pushed back into CB today due to a reshuffle caused by Phillips' absence which is a bit annoying

                Would prefer Raphinha/Harrison over Leeds defender. Would only consider Dallas otherwise plan ahead of Dunk, Shaw or Targett imo

                  See, the thing is my DGW 11 is already set. I have a defence of Shaw, Cancelo, Stones. Sanchez is one of my GKs so not sure I want the double up. Ayling gives me DGW this week and also a BGW 29 fixture.

                  I did consider Konsa but again I wouldnt plah him over my current defenders in GW 26

                A) Antonio + Grealish + Digne => Ings + Raphina + Struijk (-4)
                B) keep Grealish. Cavani + Digne => Ings + Struijk

                    Have no FH so waiting until after BGW. What are the expected extra fixtures for GW26?

                      1 month, 25 days ago

                      Are you joking? Basically every good team has a double.

                        I'm sound so if every team has a double. I've seen a spreadsheet with predictions but there's no certainty yet. How sure can we be that they won't throw extra GW26 games in with the 3 fixtures for GW29? Anyways, unless you've FH left it's not easy to get a decent team for the BGW and the weeks after that without taking a lot of hits. So, later WC for me.

                      Then go Dallas/Raph > Targett/Pereira in gw26

                      Triple Captian Kane in 26 seems good right?

                            Yeah, the three games in hand. Wouldn't do it if it was Villa. Fulham less tricky but improved at the back. Southampton, on current form would be OK but they have to improve, possibly Forster could replace Mccarthy. Burnley can also be stubborn but I think Kane fears no opposition defence.

                      Is anyone wildcarding this week despite not bench boosting in 26? If so mind sharing your draft? Trying to see how beneficial it would be to wildcard now instead of in GW30

                        i'm tempted though just missed a couple of targeted price rises
                        feel its better to wait for fixtures first and with no FH i'm leaning towards waiting til post 29

                          Same thats my current stance. I really cant see myself changing more than 4/5 players at which point Im not sure if a WC is even worth it. Many of those are potentially quite sideways moves too

                            things changing so rapidly a key injury or two and plans go out the window
                            prob 6/7 changes for me once I wildcard

                            in saying that, got burnt this dgw and down to ~90k from 38k no Gund or Burnley

                              Yeah for sure. Ouch, luckily Gundo saved me but I also went without Burnley. Decided to get Shaw and Cavani in this week instead which half worked but I wish I just went for Lowton now

                                Also went Cavani (over Ings) let’s see vs Newcastle
                                Of course Lowton scores his first goal for Burnley in dgw

                      Liverpool assets especially gw26 planning, who are you owning?
                      Think i'll still just own Salah - can't see anyone else proving value

                        I have him, reluctant to sell but cheaper mids bringing similar or better points. Depends on Dé Bruyne return and how he does, plus other possible changes.

                          I need to get Gund to stop the bleeding, but always other fires
                          interesting to see how he goes with kdb
                          still think there are some decent hauls in salah and need to check fixtures cause differential captain could be big

                            Gundogan scored earlier in season when De Bruyne played, not sure where they both played positional wise, I think De Bruyne was deeper than Dé Bruyne. Great for his assist potential but less goals. Hard to see Pep not wanting Gundogan sniffing goals and defence is much improved so possibly Gundogan's defensive duties aren't as vital.

                        Yep, Salah only, and he's pretty essential imo. The only reasonable argument I can see against not owning Salah is if you want Bruno Son Kane and Grealish which is pretty hard to own on top of Salah

                          Yep. Prefer Kane to son and own sterling now (no Gund...yet)

                      Can anyone convince me I can get a decent bench for a BB in GW26 after doing a WC in GW25?

                        You can because there are decently priced players bringing in good points right now so after 26 you'll still have a decent 11 provided you have a FH for GW29.

                      Those with BB left, are you planning on using in GWK26?

                      Would it be mad not to build around doing that if you do have that chip?

                        Nope not mad imo.. You can play it in any mini-DGW just like this week.. May even worth playing in SGW but i prefer gw26 or any mini-DGW.

                          Yeah, if you want DGW players on your bench in addition to your whole starting XI, GW26 is probably the only chance you'll get, but if you don't care about that, then you can play it other times.

                        I'm just looking to get rid of it at this point as it's starting to cloud my judgement, may even use it this week.

                        Using it 26, from what I understand , maybe wrong, there wont be as big as double as this later in the season. Also gives time to slowly shift the the stronger bench players out
