How many Spurs assets are the Scout Network considering for DGW32?

Fantasy Premier League managers are eyeing up Spurs assets this week as they are the only team to play twice in Double Gameweek 32.

José Mourinho’s men are joint-second among Premier League teams for scoring the most first goals in games, while they are worst in the division for number of goals conceded in the last 10 minutes.

What impact will that have on how we invest in their assets this week? We asked the Scout Network what they think…

FPL Experiment

How Spurs' FPL assets fared in their final match before Double Gameweek 32 7

Both Harry Kane (£11.7m) and Son Heung-min (£9.4m) will be in our team for Double Gameweek 32. Rotation is definitely a concern, with EFL Cup final on the horizon but Mourinho isn’t exactly blessed with a squad that allows him to rest his best players. And with Europa League qualification at risk, the simple fact is Tottenham need to win their league games, so I cannot see Son getting dropped, especially against  a side he scored four against earlier in the season. 

We won’t be going anywhere near the Spurs defence. Bizarrely, given that it’s a Mourinho team, this is the worst side for expected goals conceded in the last two games and one of those was against an injury ravaged Newcastle outfit.

Spurs’ Double Gameweek 32 fixtures genuinely create a headache for FPL managers. There is temptation to triple-up Spurs assets but they will immediately have a Blank Gameweek 33 afterwards. That said, their run-in is respectable, with home games against Sheffield United, Wolves and Aston Villa to come. 

Son and Kane are key for Double Gameweek 32, if managers want to triple-up then Lucas Moura (£6.6m) has started the last six games and has contributed three assists in his last four.

Fantasy Chat

Having Son Heung-Min (£9.4m) and Harry Kane (£11.7m) is as essential as it can get if you can afford to bench them in Gameweek 33 as their fixtures continue to be strong beyond that.

Personally I wouldn’t consider any other options given their blank in Gameweek 33 and the fact that many FPL managers still hold Manchester City assets in our squads and they also blank in Gameweek 33. Given Spurs’ poor defensive form and the amount of rotation in their backline, I wouldn’t look at any options in defence. Other options in attack are limited but Lucas Moura (£6.6m) who is in fine form is your best bet aside from Son and Kane. The season defining League Cup Final a few days after the Southampton game could mean rotation so managers should tread with caution.

El Statto

How Spurs' FPL assets fared in their final match before Double Gameweek 32 5

I’m going into the Spurs double with Son and Kane. I’m not too sure there is much value in going with a third attacker. Hugo Lloris (£5.6m) is the safest option in defence due to Mourinho’s rotation, especially with centre-backs, but playing Everton and Southampton I can see both scoring so gains could be minimal.

El Statto

FPL Nymfria

Heading into a Double Gameweek it’s always a good time to remind ourselves that this season, not many Double Gameweek players have delivered as promised. With that in mind, I think just owning one or at the most two Spurs assets will be enough.

I wouldn’t look much outside of Son and Kane, but if at this stage you want to have fun with it and add to them, then Moura, with his three assist in the last four Gameweeks, could be a nice differential.

FPL Froggies

If your are chasing in your mini-leagues take a risk and go for three Spurs players. But it is worth considering that, you will probably have to take a minus-four in Blank Gameweek 33 to replace two of Spurs in their blank. For me I’ll be sticking with just Son and Kane.

If you are looking for a third then I would be avoiding the defence as they just aren’t keeping clean sheets, however if you have one I would hold. Moura seems to have the biggest potential, but Tanguy Ndombélé (£5.9m) would make a great differential pick.

What’s happening in the Scout Network?

Scout Network: Thinking ahead to the blank and double Gameweek in 18 and 19

Last week Sam from FPLFamily was joined on Scout The Gameweek by Grayham from FPL Focus. They looked back on Gameweek 30 and ahead to Gameweek 31. Next week Sam is joined by Pete and Dubs from FPL Side Net to review Gameweek 31 and look ahead to Gameweek 32.

FPL Nymfria – released her Gameweek Preview looking at her Wildcard options for Gameweek 31. She also shone a spotlight on some of the players picks to consider in the coming Gameweeks which you can watch here.

El Statto – The weekly Wildcard feature over on the Jumpers For Goalposts website has been proving really popular, as has their differential picks article. These two features have been really helpful for the community, as they deal with the key talking points of the FPL game.

FF Titans – Ahead of Matchday 10 in the UCL Fantasy game FF Titans have been focusing on differential and captain picks, with one eye especially on players who are more likely to progress to Matchday 11.

    Anyone see the Chelsea game last night?

    How did Havertz and ´Pulisic play? 0-10

    1. Werner Bremen
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Pulisic was great, could have scored. Havertz was alright, but the finishing lacked.

      1. tomasjj
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 10 days ago

        Thanks!
        I brought Havertz in, but not sure if it was too rushed.

    Bench boost a good one for this week?

    Mendy
    Rudiger - TAA - Holding
    Lingard - Salah - Jota - Bruno - Son
    Kane - Nacho

      Looks good enough

    2. ElChapo
      • 2 Years

      Have a look at GW34 - your team is similar to mine and GW34 looks prime for BB.

        Haha well said. It may be 4, it may be 24

  5. Fantasydreamer

    If cresswell is out who should I start?

    A. Dallas (Liverpool)
    B. Digne (spurs)

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Dallas

    2. ElChapo

      Dallas

  6. Werner Bremen

    Any news on Cresswell? Thinking of a hit for TAA

    1. FPL_Motty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Looks to be out for 2-3weeks

  7. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 10 days ago

    What sort of luck do i have to choose
    Phillips, Neto, Fofana, Wilson
    Over
    TAA, Lingard, holding, Vydra on WC...

    Bloody sickening to see all 50/50 decisions go against me

  8. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 10 days ago

    Already did Bamford to Ihenacho as my FT.

    GTG?

    Martinez
    TAA, Ruidger, Stones
    Son (VC), Bruno, Lingard, Jota
    Kane (C), Ihenacho, DCL

    Subs: Pope, Saka, Coufal, Dunk

    1. Hitman MHK
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Yep, although I'd considering playing Saka over DCL.

      1. CAVEAT KING
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 10 days ago

        Saka injured?

      2. CAVEAT KING
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 10 days ago

        Dcl injured too but probably back

  9. SimonOwen
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 10 days ago

    Either this week or next week I will need to take a -4 hit to enable a full team for GW33. (Man City / Spurs assets and Neto being injured for the rest of the season)
    Currently I have a full team with Coady (SHU) being the player who would make way for a new Midfielder up to 8.3M, i think its best to wait and see and bring in a non injured player in GW33 rather than bringing in say Maddison (great fixtures going forward and better GW33 option than say Mount) this week who is unlikely to make +4 points on Coady.

  10. TeddiPonza
    • 11 Years
    5 months, 10 days ago

    Is this good enough for bench boost? Don't know when else to use it 🙂 (GW34)

    Forster (LEI) Vydra (WHU) Struijk (BHA) Holding (new)

    Thanks.

    1. FPL_Motty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Don't think so. Struijk a blank, forster will likely ship lots of goals. So it's just 2 players really

      1. Gentle_Turks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 10 days ago

        Struijk likely starts with Cooper (red card) out?

    2. Hitman MHK
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Hold it IMO

    3. CAVEAT KING
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Forster could let you down

  11. Hitman MHK
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 10 days ago

    Didn't think about my bench dilemmas on my WC last week lol

    Shaw (BUR, H)
    Alonso (BHA, H)
    Coady (SHU, H)
    Holding (FUL, H)
    TAA (LEE, A)

    1. CAVEAT KING
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      If he plays Alonso can haul and unlikely to play if not picked.
      Whatever choice you make will be the wrong one, as I have encountered but I always favor the wing backs.

      1. Hitman MHK
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 10 days ago

        Yep, agreed! That was my plan as if Chilwell plays, Alonso likely won't come off the bench.

    2. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Well you have to play Shaw, Alonso and TAA

      1. Hitman MHK
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 10 days ago

        Yep. Not 100% certain on TAA as I think they'll concede, but if it's an attacking game (which it should), he should be amongst the crosses

  12. Dazzler
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 10 days ago

    Should I use my triple captain on Son or Kane this week? I’m gonna use it this week. Son has done well every time I’ve captained him but...

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Depends if you're chasing in your mini league or defending a lead.

      Defending = Kane TC
      Chasing = Son TC

      1. Dazzler
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 10 days ago

        Chasing in all! 🙂

    2. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      I would consider Kane.

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      It's unlikely you'll get a better option for the rest of this season.

  13. artvandelay316
    5 months, 10 days ago

    Hi all,
    Should I do Pope > Leno / Patricio for a -4 or play Forster and bench Pope?

    Cheers.

    1. CAVEAT KING
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Is Leno a season keeper? If so evaluate if Leno will get more points than Pope who is leaking goals against average sides atm.

      1. artvandelay316
        5 months, 10 days ago

        I plan to keep him for the season after this yes, not just this week. But can't decide if it's worth a -4 or not.

    2. Dazzler
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Leno

      1. artvandelay316
        5 months, 10 days ago

        Cheers both.

    Hi Guys

    I have Dias in my team do you think I should get rid? And if so what would be a good replacement Below is my current team

    Mendy | Forster

    Dias | Shaw | TAA | Rudiger | Holding

    Son | Jota | Salah | Lingard | Neto

    Iheanacho | Kane | Vydra

    Was thinking maybe WOlves defence, but they scare me a bit 🙂

    I need to also replace Neto with maybe

    A. Maddison
    B. Havertz
    C. Traore (Wolves)

    Appreciate your comments.

    Thanks

    1. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Hard to give advice without knowing how many FTs & £ you have available.

      Given that you already have Leicester attack covered with Nacho, I'm not sure I'd bother with Maddison.

      I think I'd be more tempted to take a punt on Greenwood to get a United attacker in there and downgrade Dias if necessary to someone like Dallas if you need extra cash.

      1. DavvaMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 10 days ago

        Hi

        I have 1.2 ITB and no chips available I WC last week.

    2. Dazzler
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      They are all a risk. I’d probably take a punt on Pereira for Neto. Dias is prob worth holding on to for this week

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      I would save for this week then do Dias & Neto to Dallas & Greenwood next week.

    4. Indio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Given you'll already have benching headaches (blank notwithstanding) I wouldn't worry about replacing Dias as such, but I like the Dallas idea above. Maybe roll and then do Dias and Neto > Dallas and Mount next week, if there are no other surprises/priorities?

      1. DavvaMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 10 days ago

        Thanks Guys.

        My concersn this week are if Dias and Rudiger start!

  15. Danstoke82

    Hi all, really struggling on who to play and who to bench as all my players, bar Vydra, have goof fixtures. Also have 1FT in the bag but £0.0ITB

    This lot GTG or do I bring in a Spurs defender?

    Mendy
    Dias Castagne TAA
    Salah Son Fernandes Lingard Jota
    Kane Iheanacho

    Subs; Forster Rudiger Holding Vydra

    Feedback much appreciated! Thanks in advance

    1. Indio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 10 days ago

      Nice team. Yep bench is tough for you this week - I've a funny feeling Holding or Rudy might do better for you than Castagne, so maybe swap one of those in? Otherwise, GTG. Good luck!

  16. Indio
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 10 days ago

    Hi all, what's my best move with the team below please?

    A: Auba and Digne > Salah and Shaw (or best other def up to 5.4) for -4.
    B: Auba and Targett > Salah and Phillips for -4.
    C: Auba > Lingard (free), leaves coin for Son > Salah next week.
    D: Something else?

    Team now:
    Martinez
    Digne, Dias, Dallas
    Bruno, Auba, Son (V), Jota
    Antonio, Nacho, Kane (C)
    Subs: (Fabri) Raphina, Veltmann, Targett
