SCOUT PICKS FOR GAMEWEEK 26

GOALKEEPER

A trip to Leeds isn’t the easiest test but Emiliano Martinez has kept seven clean sheets on the road this season and at the very least should rack up the save points at Elland Road. The fact that he’s the fifth-cheapest goalkeeper in this FanTeam event is also a big factor.

DEFENDERS

The creativity offered by assist merchants Lucas Digne and Trent Alexander-Arnold makes their picks self-explanatory but they can’t all be premium purchases given that we’re on a budget, so we’re hoping for a dour stalemate at the Hawthorns this weekend. Five clean sheets in seven for the Seagulls raises hopes for another shut-out for wing-back Joel Veltman, while Sam Allardyce may be ever-so-slowly turning the ship around in the Midlands following the goalless draw at Burnley last weekend. Kyle Bartley, who has popped up with the odd goal this season, is our bargain-bin selection.

MIDFIELDERS

Raphinha has 10 attacking returns in his last 12 outings, while a resurgent Gareth Bale has four in three in all competitions and was a game-changer when he was introduced at West Ham last weekend. A rest in midweek should see the Welshman start against Burnley. It’s more the opposition that leads us to pick Mohamed Salah but even in Liverpool’s current slump, the Egyptian still has four goals in his last five games.

FORWARDS

Two goals in two for Richarlison and a cheaper price tag than Dominic Calvert-Lewin sees the Brazilian make the cut for Everton’s clash with an out-of-sorts Southampton. Ollie Watkins is cheaper still and is up against a Leeds defence that can self-combust at a moment’s notice. Those two more affordable picks allow us to splurge our remaining budget on Harry Kane, who has eight goals in 10 against Burnley.

75k EVENT

For those Fantasy managers looking for an even bigger prize pool, FanTeam have a €75k Weekly Monster event running simultaneously in Gameweek 26.

The rules and scoring system are the same as the €12,500 Weekly Monster event, with entries costing €20.

HOW TO PLAY: A BRIEF GUIDE

Slightly different from the usual squad-based games, FanTeam managers are given a budget of €105m to build a team of 11 players that includes at least one goalkeeper, three defenders, two midfielders and one forward.

There is no bench or manual substitutes; instead, there is a ‘Safety Net’ feature. If a player in your Fantasy team isn’t in the starting XI for their side, they will automatically be substituted for the next priced player from the same position and club.

Captains score double points, as usual.

For a more detailed rundown of the rules, click the above image to enlarge.

HOW DOES THE SCORING WORK?

FPL managers looking for a way to make their knowledge pay will have no trouble picking up FanTeam‘s Gameweek 26 Weekly Monster, with its familiar scoring system.

Think of it as FPL without the bonus points, with a few other exceptions – detailed in the graphic above.

      If they do have 2 doubles, that's certainly the way I'd go.

    Help needed with BB; I currently have a non playing keeper, Watkins, Lowton and Burn (bri). I'm thinking maybe not worth bench boosting?,

    1. marcos11
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Might be worthwhile if you transfer in a playing keeper, maybe Areola?

    2. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Lowton and Ings to Digne and Kane for -4, if Everton DGW28?

      1. Boly Would
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Looks good

      2. marcos11
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Looks a good move, don’t think we’ll know about Everton dgw28 before the deadine though

          Do we think Struijk keeps his place till 29 at least?

          1. Boly Would
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I think he'll be dropped when Phillips is back

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Would that be before 29?

        3. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          2 months, 16 days ago

          (sorry for repost, lost in previous article)

          Currently rolling with Gundo + Sterling + Stones, current team is :

          Martinez
          Stones AWB Lowton
          Gündo Sterling Bruno Salah Raphina
          DCL Bamford

          bench: Areola Dallas Coufal Deco-Reid

          Considering I don't think Sterling will play both and hence plan to part with him for Kane, does it make sense to go with two City only - Stones + Gundo, and rather go with Digne or Pereira instead of Dias as 3rd City this GW, since Dias also might get rotated. Then get any 3rd City player for DGW27 - could give opportunity to jump on e.g. KDB. And e.g. Digne mmight have a DGW28. So basically between:

          A) Dias
          B) Digne/Perereira , get any 3rd City player for DGW27 (which could ofc be Dias)

          1. saurabh.06
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I am in the same dilemma. But I think sterling form is good for last few gws. He was subbed off around 70 mins last night. I think he might play both the games.

            1. Pompel
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Yeah, if he plays both it could come back to bite me. But if keeping him I'd have to lose Salah or go without Kane

        4. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Villa's DGW is quite good attacking wise. But with Grealish out the creativity levels has seen a drop. Still its hard to see Villa not scoring in both of the games.

          Take a punt on Bertrand Traore? Im on a FH. He seems to be on corners and Freekicks now.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Think Traore is a cool call

            From memory Leeds are one of those sides that leak loads from deadballs.

          2. Pompel
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Surely, if bases covered elsewhere. Depends who makes way for him

          3. Jellyfish
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            He's the best attacking pick if you don't already have Watkins

        5. sentz05
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Am I silly selling Bednerak with a double next week? It’s City so I’m thinking of his double as a single. He’ll probably end up getting minus points.

          1. Ian Davis
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I’ve got the same issue with McCarthy, hoping they at least get a clean sheet vs Sheff Utd so might get about 5-6 points

        6. C_G
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          0 FTs, 0.5 ITB, gtg you think?

            Yup. V similar line up. I'm debating -4s but none make sense. The Leeds boys are tough to drop.

            Martinez
            Cancelo Stones Dallas
            Son Salah Bruno Gundogan Raphinha

          What’s the news on Grealish. Should I sell? I have no value tied up in him.

          1. Werner Bremen
            • 2 Years

            Sell for the time being

        8. Diro
            2 months, 16 days ago

            1) Keep my current team and do 1 or 2 transfers (-4) :
            Martinez (McCarthy)
            Konsa, Stones, Cancelo, (Justin, Dallas)
            Sterling, Fernandes, Son, Raphinha (Grealish)
            DCL, Bamford, Cavani

            2) First WC draft :
            Martinez, (Areola)
            Konsa, Stones, Cancelo, Targett (Dallas)
            Gundo, Barnes, Fernandes, Son (Raphinha)
            Kane, Vardy (Bamford)

            3) Second WC draft :
            Martinez (Stier)
            Konsa, Stones, Targett (Struijk, Mitchell)
            Salah, Fernandes, Gundo, Barnes, Son
            DCL, Vardy (Bamford)

            If I WC, the question is more : Do I sacrifice my team to have the magic 5 in the middle and especially Salah or not ? ^^

              0,0 ITB. What would you change? Would love to get DCL in, but don't know how...

              I was thinking doing Dallas to Targett atleast

              Rather than DCL(TC), I think I'll just chuck the BB on Sanchez, White (WBA A) Dallas (AVL H) JWP (EVE A). Thoughts?

              I want to transfer Coufal out. His fixtures are awful. Surely, a BGW game against Arsenal which will probably be a 2 pointer isn’t worth keeping him for. A lot could happen until then anyway with bans and injuries.

              DCL Bamford Antonio

              Thoughts on Saka and McCarthy to Barnes and 4m Gk for a 4 pointer? It would allow me to bench Antonio this week and play him next week v Leeds

              a) Rashford to Sterling
              b) Rashford Brewster to Jorginho Kane -4

              TC on DCL at the moment but would consider Kane if I go for that option

              Jorginho I expect to play both, seems favoured by Tuchel and on pens

              Can you guys give me your opinion on my free hit team please. Don’t want to get involved with Pep roulette so only picked Ederson and Gundo.
              Ederson
              Shaw. Soyuncu. Konsa
              Barnes. Salah. Bruno. Gundo
              Vardy. Kane (c) DCL

              Want as many nailed players as possible in my free hit team. Opinions would be much appreciated.

                Solid. See mine below yours.
                Same frontline... I have compromised in the midfield and gone heavy in defence.

                Same comment as below, think I would be having triple city if I was on a FH

                  I could do Soy to stones but stones may only play one game. I’ve got stones in my normal squad but on FH I want as many nailed players as possible. I’m struggling to think of another totally nailed city player.

              RMT FH Team .

              Ederson
              Digne Pereira Reguilon Stones
              Salah Son Traore/Pereira
              Kane Vardy DCL

              Mitchell ESR

              Thoughts??

                UTD DEF instead of Reguilon, and Gundogan in the MID

                I like Digne, Reg and Pereira, I’d just be slightly worried that Stones only plays the first game. I do think city will get two clean sheets and like you, got Ederson in to cover this. Loads will have Martinez in goal so I’ve covered that with konsa. You could potentially change stones to konsa and upgrade your third midfielder?

                  Agreed, Stones gives you probably 3 games over the next 2 gameweeks, so he's a good player to have on your roster given the combination of his price & City's quality.

                  But on a FH, nah, go with someone who's guaranteed 180 minutes this week. Maybe Targett?

                    Thoughts on Semedo instead of Targett? Dont fancy Villa defensively.

                  Stones was rested yesterday... So i am taking the punt on him to start both. But could go wrong.
                  I can get Gundo for Traore... But i am worried Gundo starts only one of those!!
                  On the other hand Traore is now Villa's main man. On freekicks and Corners too... I cant see Villa not scoring in both the games.

                  Thoughts??

                Not having triple city on a FH isn't something I'd do, Gundo could really hurt you

              Would you WC? if not, take hits in order to BB?
              Have 3 Leeds on bench.

              Pope (McCarthy)

                I would. I have a similar team and strongly considering -12 to upgrade my defense and be done worrying about bb for the rest of the season. All it takes is 2 additional cs: 2*(4+2) so well worth the gamble. McCarthy, Mee, Dallas > Areola, Reguilon, Ricardo P.

                  I’d consider hits, in case that wasn’t clear

            17. Werner Bremen
              • 2 Years

              Martinez, Areola
              Cancelo, Stones, Pereira, Dallas, Rudiger
              Salah, Gundogan, Bruno, Son, Raphinha
              Kane, Bamford, Watkins

              What ist the best way of geting DCL in my BB team? (0,0 ITB)

                Bamford, Son > DCL and Barnes

              Cavani and Digne

              or

              Vardy and El Mahamady

              to hold over the next few game weeks but especially this DGW

                Cavani injured isn't he?

              On WC and torn between the below (both options leave 7 for gw29 before transfers):

              (A)
              Martinez / Forster
              Dunk/ Dallas / Aina*/ Cancelo / Digne
              Barnes / Raphinha / Bruno / KDB* / Gundo
              Maja* / DCL / Kane

              Leaves 0 in the bank

              (B)
              Martinez / Forster
              Dunk / Dallas / Stones* / Cancelo / Digne
              Barnes / Raphinha / Bruno / Bale* / Gundo
              Bamford* / DCL / Kane

              Leaves 0.7 in the bank

              Any thoughts on the two? Bale a potentially controversial pick but I am thinking he delivers even without playing full minutes
