Scout Picks

Double Gameweek 32 Scout Picks XI includes Spurs triple-up

As they prepare to face Everton and Southampton over the next few days, Spurs assets form the spine of our Double Gameweek 32 Scout Picks.

We have chosen three of their players for the latest round of games while Liverpool and Manchester United provide a pair of double-ups.

Our Scout Picks, chosen from DavidNealeTom and Andy‘s Scout Squad submissions, line up in 4-4-2 formation this week, coming in at £79.6m, £3.4m inside our budget of £83.0m. 

Goalkeeper

Hugo Lloris (£5.6m) is our chosen representative from the Spurs defence ahead of their two fixtures in the Double Gameweek. José Mourinho’s goalkeeper is the most likely to feature significantly in both matches. Everton drew 0-0 with Brighton last time out and Southampton have failed to score in three of their last five away matches; so a clean sheet is hardly an unexpected outcome for Lloris.

Defenders

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) is right back where Fantasy Premier League managers have come to expect him: one of the best creative defenders in the division. Over his last six matches, he is top among all FPL defenders for key passes and big chances, producing 44 points in that time (7.3 per game).

Luke Shaw (£5.3m) is not far behind Alexander-Arnold over the last six, providing four clean sheets and a goal in that time for a total of 38 points. His 10 key passes keep the left-back in the top-five defenders during the same period.

Conor Coady (£4.9m) and his Wolves colleagues went some way to helping out the fixtures-over-form camp in their 1-0 win over Fulham on Friday night. That suggests he can be trusted again when Sheffield United come to Molineux for their delayed Double Gameweek 32 match. The Blades have scored just seven away goals in 15 attempts this season, the worst in the Premier League.

Rob Holding (£4.2m) remains a helpful value option in defence with Fulham coming to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. Over the last six matches, the Cottagers are in the Premier League’s bottom five for big chances while no side has a worse goal conversion rate (4.5%).

Midfielders

Injury updates on Son, Saka, and Burn ahead of BGW29 and Aubameyang latest

Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m) might only have two attacking returns since Double Gameweek 26 but a Sunday afternoon meeting with Burnley could change all that. The Clarets are on the longest run of any side in the division without a clean sheet and, over their last six, are in the bottom-three for expected goals conceded (xGC).

Son Heung-min (£9.4m) is the second of our three Spurs players for the Double Gameweek. Everton have just one clean sheet at home since Gameweek 13 while Southampton are the Premier League’s fourth-worst side for xGC over the last matches. Over the same period, Son is top of the division for big chances created.

Following a midweek rest, Diogo Jota (£7.0m) looks more likely than his attacking colleagues to start against Leeds for Liverpool on Monday night. The mid-priced midfielder has three goals across his last three Premier League outings.

Jesse Lingard (£6.5m) is the division’s man-in-form after a fifth double-digit haul of the campaign in just his ninth appearance. Considering only two players in the Premier League can boast more shots on target than Lingard over the last six matches, his output looks sustainable at least for now. In Double Gameweek 32, West Ham face a Newcastle outfit that has conceded at least two goals in nine of their last 14 league matches.

Forwards

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

As already mentioned, Spurs’ fixtures in Double Gameweek 32 look very appealing from an attacking perspective. Harry Kane (£11.7m) is an obvious inclusion in the Scout Picks then considering he is joint-top of the Premier League for big chances and shots on target over the last six matches.

Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.0m) is one of two players level with Kane for big chances during that period and is just one shot on target behind him too. It is no surprise the Leicester forward has produced seven goals since Double Gameweek 26. West Bromwich Albion have made some defensive improvements recently but still have just one clean sheet away from home this season.

Substitutes

  • Rui Patrício (£5.3m)
  • Arthur Masuaku (£4.3m)
  • Gabriel Martinelli (£4.9m)
  • Callum Wilson (£6.5m)

THE CAPTAIN

Who are the best captain options for FPL Gameweek 36+?

We choose the Scout Picks captain using a four-way vote between our Scout Squad pundits.

Because we use Fantasy Football Scout data so heavily in this process, the skipper we choose each Gameweek is known only to those with a valid Fantasy Football Scout subscription and revealed to the public only when the deadline has passed.

Here’s how we voted for Double Gameweek 32:

      What do y'all think about bringing in vardy?

        3 months, 19 days ago

        If in addition to Iheanacho could be good move but Cavani or Lacazette worth considering

          Don't u fancy a differential instead of Sterling mate?

          I'm thinking rashford or greenwood instead

    • Jimmy Boy
      • 4 Years

      Evening all, is Jota expected to start Monday night?

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years

      2. MidTableFantasy
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        I would think so

    • Isca Extremadura
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Is there going to be a better TC
      than Kane in a DGW ?

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Could be in gw35 or 37

      2. No Kane No Gain
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        No

    • arndff_
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Deciding which THREE defenders to START in GW32 will be tough…

      TAA (lee)
      Alonso (BHA)
      Rudiger (BHA)
      Coady (SHU)
      Holding (FUL)

      Currently on:
      TAA, Alonso, Coady with Holding, Rudiger on the bench (in this order)

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        TAA Alonso Coady

          1. arndff_
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Yup. Seems like we think alike.

            Who would you be your first sub: Holding or Rudiger?

            I think Holding in order to spread the risk (3x CHE atb, own Mendy as well).

            1. dunas_dog
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              Yes Holding for me first on bench

    • Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      You think I could be in trouble fielding 11 players if I have Stones, Rudiger, DCL and Saka?

      1. arndff_
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Isn’t Rudiger nailed on?

    • Arteta
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Patrício Mendy
      Alexander-Arnold Castagne Reguilón Semedo Holding
      Salah Son Jota Neto Smith-Rowe
      Kane Vardy Iheanacho

      Would you activate Bench Boost if this was your team?

      1. Arteta
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        After choosing Neto's replacement that is.

      2. Random Name
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Focus on the game tonight Arteta

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Rudiger . Shaw . Holding . Coady . Phillips

      Mendy
      Rudiger, TAA, Holding, Coady
      Bruno, Lingard, Salah, Jota
      Kane (c), Iheanacho

      Forster, Amartey, Vydra, Neto

      1ft £3.4 itb

      Dont have enough to do Neto to son so....

      A) Jota > Son
      B) Neto > Lucas Moura
      C) Neto + Vydra > Son + Davis -4

      Then drop which defender?

      1. Rep Poulette
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 19 days ago

        B

      2. MidTableFantasy

        Hi everyone,

        I'm having quite the bench boost conundrum this week due to some injury concerns.
        I set up my wildcard team nicely for a bb in GW 32:

        Ederson - Schmeichel
        TAA-Shaw-Azpilicueta-Coady-Reguilon
        Jota-Lingard-Bruno-Neto-Son
        Kane-Iheanacho-DCL

        I already got in Bowen to cover Neto's absence, but now DCL (who was already a plan B to Antonio) is ruled out as well.
        The options I'm considering:
        - Play my bb and take a -4 for either Wood, Bamford, Watkins, Fabio Silva or Wilson (none of which I'm crazy about, so which one would you choose?)
        - Play my bb without taking a hit and thus having 0 points from DCL
        - Saving my bb for another week and benching either Ederson or Schmeichel and two of my defenders, which seems ridiculous when you look at their fixtures (which ones would you bench?)

        All thoughts are welcome!

        1. BurlingtonDriftersFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          either the 2nd or 3rd option for me - if you go #3, I'd bench Kasper, Bowen, Azpi and DCL.

          Slightly favor saving bb for another week - it does not feel like the bb is woking out for you, unfortunately.

          1. Opperkaker
              3 months, 19 days ago

              I see your point, my main concern is I probably won't get another gameweek with similarly good fixtures for my defenders. And bench boosting basically means adding one GK, two DEFs and one attacking player to your eleven, so it's all about those guys. Would also hate benching Bowen immediately after bringing him in. What do you think?

        2. Jimjam
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Martinez (Forster)
          Cancelo, Shaw, Rudiger (Dallas, Phillips)
          Salah, Fernandes Bale, Jota, Lingard
          Kane, Iheanacho (Bamford)

          0FT, 0.0 in bank

          Bale & Cancelo --> Son & Coady worth a -8?

          Start Holding or Rudiger? Can only be one.

          No other Chelsea defensive cover so tending towards playing Rudiger bit maybe Holding has better chance of bonus/attacking returns what do you think?

          McCarthy, Gundo, DCL --> Lloris, Lingard, Iheanacho

          Southampton and Everton. Two sides who want to play instead of laying deep, making them vulnerable for counter. Makes me wanna go Son(c) as a differential. Anyone with me?

          I've got a midfield of Bruno, Gundo, Salah, Jota and Smith-Rowe. If Son is essential for GW32, who goes? I have Vardy and Kane up top so its has to be one of Bruno or Salah, or not at all. Given Salah's fixtures I'm tempted to keep but I have loads of value tied up in Bruno so getting him back in would be potentially rash/painful. What do people think? This is my team...

          Mendy
          Alonso-Trent-Coady
          Bruno-Salah-Jota-Gundo
          Vardy-Vydra-Kane (TC)
          [Forster-Dawson-Holding-SmithRowe]

          a) Son for Salah
          b) Son for Bruno
          c) Stick

            Can you afford Vardy, ESR to Iheanacho, Son

              no, Gundo would have to go to make that possible. and if i -4 to replace Vardy, i’ll have the fear he goes big/gets a pen

            Got the same exact problem here, including the Bruno value headache.

            I am sticking for the moment - but if I do switch, it would be Salah for Son (don't have Jota however), and then switch right back next week.

          TAA Rüdiger Alonso

          A Fofana
          B Holding

          And would you start either in place of 3 starters?

            Got a feeling Rudiger might be benched. I’d start both of them over him haha

          Salah >> Son (and reverse it next GW)? Could start Holding over Gundog too to get really close to the scout picks haha 🙂
