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.

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.

    Is Ings to DCL for a -4 worth it?

    1. Werner Bremen

      Yes

        I endorse the above comment.

      Just been looking at Southampton defensive record.

      Even when you strip out the 9-0 it is woeful since the turn of the year. This is not a blip! Add in WBA and you're looking at a fairly probable 4 or 5 goals for Everton over the 2 games.

      1. St Pauli Walnuts

        You were commenting the other day saying you can't see the attraction with Everton and now you're encouraging hits to get their players in.

        1. pingissimus

          🙂

          Was saying that Everton are overrated. Think they are. They are certainly very unpredictable - got overrun by Newcastle when they were at their worst.

          If I believed in them I'd make the move easily. Looking at Southampton more closely could yet tip me over into DCL. That's the new bit.

          1. St Pauli Walnuts

            • 2 Years

            Yes I know what you mean, they are inconsistent. They are dream DGW fixtures from an attacking point of view though and with all their key creators fit, I'm captaining DCL.

  3. Weeb Kakashi

    Pick one on FH

    A Gundo
    B Bertrand Traore
    C M. Pereira

    Have Ederson and Stones. Ideally A would be the ideal choice.... But i am worried about him starting only one game. Traore is now more nailed and Villa should score in both the games. Thoughts??

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      A

    2. Jellyfish
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Traore scoring in both games is a bit optimistic I'd say

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Villa* to score in both. Better fixtures and more likely to start both was my reasoning tbh!

    3. JohnnyRev7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Depends on the rest of your team. Otherwise we're just playing pin the tail on the donkey.

  4. Steve The Spud

    Kane tc let’s goooo

  5. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Best option out of these on wildcard?

    A) Digne, Burn & Struijk
    B) Pereira, White & Struijk
    C) Reguilon, White & Burn

    4th & 5th defenders are there to fill up GW29 numbers.

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Tough. Have gone with all 3 (Reg Digne and Ricardo on FH)

      If planning for 29 then Reguilon id say.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Yeah makes sense on FH to get them as differentials but I still prefer my double City def.

        1. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I have maintained the double city defence with Ederson and Stones.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            You should have a great week!
            Great value in defence for this gameweek.

            1. Weeb Kakashi
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Cheers!! One more thing... If Digne gets a 28 then he could be the one to get for you.

              1. Weeb Kakashi
                • 5 Years

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Hi Karan !
      B looks cool to me.

      You have BB left ?

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Hey Amey! How's it going?

        Yes I have BB left but I have no idea when and how I'm going to use it. This season is just not made for the BB chip.

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I'm doing well hopefully you're same.
          What I'm thinking about is playing WC this GW & BB 27/28.
          Leicester Villa Everton Brighton WBA all have great fixtures in 28 (possible DGW also) hence I'm thinking that.
          Created a draft in my mind: haven't tried Money wise but it must be close

          Martinez Pickford
          Cancelo Dias Periera Targett Dunk
          Salah Bruno Gundogan Barnes Periera
          DCL Kane Bamford

          BB in 28 is possible with this.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            That's a good strategy mate.
            I'm just not mentally prepared to lose Son in that midfield that's why I have a weak bench but if I sell him I could also BB in 27/28.

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Yeah. Only chance to nail BB IMO with WC for us. Let's see

    3. Skymonkey
        1 month, 20 days ago

        B, Leicester have good fixtures for defence

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Yeah fixtures look good but I'm a bit worried about rotation for Pereira.

    4. nn11
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Is it worth BB when you have 5 players with only 1 game?

      1. Do I Not Like Orange
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Depends on the game. Realistically you're not going to end up with another DGW this season where you have fewer SGW players.

    5. Zladan
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Antonio to Watkins (-4)?

      1. Skymonkey
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Yep

      2. AC Me Rollin’
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Martínez
        Cancelo / Dallas / Mee
        Raphinha / Son / Salah / Fernandes / Gündogan
        Bamford / Calvert-Lewin

        Fabianski / Ings / Mitchell / Coufal

        A) Raphina > Barnes
        B) Ings > Kane + Raphina > Lookman (-4)
        C) Ings > Vardy + Coufal > Söyüncü (-4)

        Which option is looking the best?

      3. Slurpy
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Martinez (Areola)
        Shaw Mee Stones ( Lowton ,Dallas)
        Barnes Rasford Bruno (TC) Sterling Raph
        Bamford Watkins (Ings)

        Still trying to get more opinions really stuck here , team scored 122 last week with BB so some hard sells.

        Ings to DCL
        or
        Kane in for a -4? And how would you do it? (1.1m ITB)

      4. Rinseboy
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Foden or Dias for last man city spot?

        1. drughi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Dias

      5. vincentwsho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        On a WC and may bench boost in 27 or 28... which do you prefer below?

        A) Stones + Dias + Soyuncu + Salisu
        B) L.Thomas + Cancelo + Dias + Salisu
        C) Cancelo + Stones + Vestergaard + L.Thomas

      6. Coaly
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Best move?

        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. However could start Bamford over him

        1. Skymonkey
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Don't transfer Rashford out IMO. But I would get Kane, so do B. I don't think Jorginho should be relied on at all vs MUN and LIV. They don't concede too many pens.

        2. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Have a feeling TC on Kane is gonna end up like Sane and Mane with Kane cming off injured after 15mins

          1. drughi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            mane tc last year was painful, will tc kane or dcl this season so hopefully a haul this time around

          2. Amey
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            LoL

        3. My heart goes Salalalalah
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I have 3.0m itb. Will bench boost Sanchez, White, Dallas, JWP just to get it out of the way.
          JWP to Barnes or Son for a hit?

        4. drughi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

                Agreed.

          2. Spiritof99
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Who scores more this GW :

              B) James Kane DCL (-8)

                        FWIW there is every chance Salah does something mental with his 2 games and although i would want Kane in, i wouldnt want Salah out for -4

                        Defo get DCL in

                  Hello,

                  Would you do this -4 to get to 22 games this week? Also probably TC:ing Son.

                  Lookman & Ings --> Barnes & Watkins

                  Johnstone
                  Digne Stones Cancelo Targett
                  Salah Fernandes Barnes* Son(TRIPLE)
                  Watkins* DCL(VTC)

                    1 month, 20 days ago

                    I don't think TC Son is the way to go in DGW26. But I could be wrong.

                    Be your own man and make your own decisions.

                    Good luck whoever you choose!

                      1 month, 20 days ago

                      Fair enough, Barnes and Watkins worth a -4 though yes?

                        Barnes, yes.

                        I'm not seeing Watkins (or AVL) doing much whilst Grealish is out. Other than Martinez.

                        Can you Son ---> Barnes and Watkins ---> Kane?

                    Kane vs Palace or some other DGW

                      Spurs wont be getting any easier DGW and cant trust city players further down the line with league mathematically won..which other DGWs are you looking fwd to?

                        Depends on Cup results but their will be some small DGW.

                        But I have no plans to delay TC, if not this week, it will be gone next week.

                    Do you know what other opportunities there could be (after gw30) - I'm not 100% set on using it this week

                      Am also not sure mate, I feel this game is the best chance or Salah vs Leeds depending on how liverpool are at the time

                        In that case, for me, it's between DCL and Kane - seems to be a question of take the 15 points (x3) for DCL or gamble on the 10 to 30 (x3) points for Kane

                          Also cant rule out Bruno imo, Chelsea's system havent been tested and we are better away on the counter

                  Ok so I need to move tonight...which gets your vote? Quite tempted with C) and to TC this week!

                  A) Ings -> DCL
                  B) Ings/Sterling -> Son/Kane (-4)
                  C) B) + Tark -> Stones (-8)

                  A) edges me towards a FH29

                  POPE
                  CANCELO, TARGETT, TARKOWSKI
                  SALAH, BRUNO, STERLING, GUNDOGAN

                  Glad I kept Saka, probably the best value player after Gundo right now...
