Scout Picks

Blank Gameweek 36 Scout Picks features double-ups from four clubs

Liverpool, Everton, Manchester City and Spurs have all provided two players for the Blank Gameweek 36 Scout Picks.

After David, Neale, Tom and Andy submitted their Scout Squad submissions, we deliberated over the best XI players for the latest round of fixtures.

We are in the 4-4-2 formation for Blank Gameweek 36, coming in at £82.2m, £0.8m inside our budget of £83.0m.

Goalkeeper

Salah and blanks again as Brighton defensive assets shine ahead of good run 3

Of those playing Blank Gameweek 36, only one team has a superior figure for expected goals conceded over their last six matches as Brighton. Their total of three clean sheets is the joint-most in that time, which bodes well for Robert Sánchez (£4.6m), who has produced 18 saves and 26 points since Gameweek 30.

Defenders

Who has the best and worst FPL fixtures for the Run-In?

No defender has played more key passes in their last six matches than Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m), who is also top of his positional classification for big chances created in the same period. Meanwhile, Liverpool have kept clean sheets in three of their last four away matches prior to their Thursday-night meeting with Manchester United.

Lucas Digne (£6.2m) faces the division’s lowest scorers Sheffield United in Blank Gameweek 36, who have failed to find the net in four of their last five, already giving a great building block for a handsome haul. Meanwhile, Alexander-Arnold is the only defender to have created more big chances than Digne in his last six.

John Stones (£5.1m) returns from suspension in Blank Gameweek 36, hopefully, fresh and ready to help Manchester City to a 19th clean sheet of the campaign. Newcastle are their Friday-night opponents although they will surely feel the absence of their best centre-forward Callum Wilson. Meanwhile, Manchester City are the Premier League’s best team for xGC over their last six while Newcastle are the division’s worst over that time for giving up headed goal attempts.

On Saturday afternoon, Southampton face a relegated Fulham side that has failed to score in three of their last four. That makes Jannik Vestergaard (£4.7m) a decent budget option worth considering.

Midfielders

No Premier League player has registered more shots in the box than Mohamed Salah over the last six matches. Meanwhile, West Bromwich Albion have conceded at least two goals in five of their last six.

Son Heung-min (£9.5m) has found form at just the right time with a goal in each of his last three matches and adding an assist for 29 points during that time. We fancy him to continue that run against Wolves given the weaknesses they have shown on their right-hand side of late. During the last six matches, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have conceded 11 chances on their left, 14 through the middle and 21 down the right.

A full rest in Gameweek 34 and a 20-minute substitute’s appearance against Chelsea suggest Phil Foden (£6.0m) will be in the Manchester City team to face Newcastle on Friday night. He has three goals and five assists across his last five starts while the Magpies are without a clean sheet at home since Gameweek 16.

Forwards

Harry Kane (£11.8m) has nine attacking returns to his name since Gameweek 27 and faces a Wolves defence in Blank Gameweek 36 that is without a clean sheet in each of their last three. Meanwhile, Kane sits joint-second for big chances in the last six.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) was joint-top of the Premier League for big chances in his six matches previous to Thursday evening’s action. On Sunday evening, he faces a Sheffield United side that has conceded more goals than any other side since Gameweek 30 as well as the most chances through the middle of the pitch.

Patrick Bamford (£6.4m) is our chosen Leeds attacker ahead of a Saturday lunchtime trip to Turf Moor. The 10 goals Burnley have conceded over their last six matches is the joint-third-highest in the Premier League while no member of Marcelo Bielsa’s squad has been afforded more big chances during that time.

Substitutes

  • Jordan Pickford (£4.8m)
  • Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m)
  • Raphinha (£5.4m)
  • Matheus Pereira (£5.4m)

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 is how we voted for Blank Gameweek 36:

      154 (-12) on BB. 38 points from the bench. Really thought I'd squandered the right time to use it but this time it worked out

        Ha. Serious? Amazing score.

        Are you irritated by the lack of 2 points?

        (Assume you didn’t captain Watkins?!)

        Well done! Haha I’m the same, will need a -8 but ok with that as went all in for the double

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Similar. Guess it won't move OR much. Crasy last game of the FW, but to few differential returns

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Should still be a decent green with 140?

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

          Forgot to mentio the -8 😉

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Top 10k average 117 so should be a green arrow

    3. Rep Poulette

      143 (-4) with no chips so v happy!

      Need to attempt to navigate the last few now though. Trying to work out if a -8 will scupper it all!

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Amazing! I’m going for a -8 this week as well.

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          You’re on a blinder as well mate! What are you up to now 3k?

          If I’m going to take a -8 this feels like the week but I don’t like it!

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Think 3.5k which I’m delighted with. Just wanted top 10k but would love to stay in top 5k

            I brought in Bruno this week when I knew I’d need a -8 for 36 but hits do pay off in doubles like this!

            1. Don Kloppeone
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Who are you thinking of targeting for 36?

              I’m thinking of going safe (with my -8) and going Dallas, Bamford, Son but maybe it’s too safe!

    5. Rep Poulette
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 16 days ago

      121

  4. ZoumasBloomers
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Best defensive options until the end of the season? Sense most will be ditching Maguire/Shaw and Leicester defence so replacements are in order!

    1. Herman Toothrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Dallas, Trent and Creswell (if fit)

    2. james 101
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Coufal also

      1. james 101

        Coleman / Digne/ Godfrey

  5. HellasLEAF
    • 12 Years

    Is Coleman nailed then? Can't afford Digne and Coleman always gets forwards in attacking areas nice differential right now.

  7. JONALDINHO

    120 pts without Bruno. Pity a soft pen and OG ruins what would’ve been a great week.

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years

      OG confirmed?

        Its not.. hes saying he wish it was given as an og.

  8. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Trying to he differential with Salah (C) over Bruno did not work.

    All my differential desisions been that way this season.

    1. HellasLEAF
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      I've learned the boring captain picks usually the correct ones. Most logical usually correct.

    2. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Same. Had 5 players in my team who scored more than my captain

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

    132 all out.

    Sounds good except my rival overtook me with a score of 176.

  10. jason_ni
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    142 points, personally a superb gw, 102k up to 56k, but in cash ml, rival in 1st still scored more than me, without using a fh!

    Hes looking at 153 on a non fh, madness!!

        Who to go for? (Have Kane)

        A Son
        B Bale
        C Mahrez

        1. moz_1983
          • 8 Years

          B for me.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          I’m tempted to go mahrez but son is still a great option so depends on whether you want to take a risk on mahrez

          1. HellasLEAF
            • 12 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I want to as well. But every time I risk to Mahrez in he disappoints and I end up cursing his name.

            It's definitely setting up for a nice haul though IF of course, he should start..

            1. Pat Bonner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Same with me. Mahrez just never seems to do well for me, can’t seem to time it with him so that’s putting me off

            2. Pat Bonner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Maybe get some news before the deadline on whether he’s starting

        Just on here after the game. I’m sure it’s been discussed 100s of times, but how the hell is that Bruno’s goal!???

            Best day of this FPL season for me, was on 63 (-4) with a 30k red arrow at the start of the Villa game, ended up on 125 (-4).

            That was close!! The Rashford(c) goal securing that i make the final of my cash league cup by 10pts, in the money it is...sweet 🙂 140 (-8) in a Brunoless team not bad?

              Pogba over Greenwood fail

              Robertson over TAA fail

              Lingard over Jota fail

              With a short turn around before Friday’s deadline, how was your Double Gameweek 35?

!

              Did you use any chips? Were any of your players benched? Did your transfers pay off? How did your bench perform? Did your captain return?

 How many penalty saves did your GK’s make?

                Rough: Bench Boost sucks. Hames. Bale. Zaha. Watkins. Shaw. Castagne such dissapointments.

                Smooth: 60pts behind leaders now. Used to be twice that 3 4 Gws before?

                2 months, 16 days ago

                137 on BB which only contributed 6 points. A last-minute switch to DLC with Veltman on the bench from Digne and Bamford cost me 12 points.

                • 11 Years
                2 months, 16 days ago

                12 point hit for Kane, Son, Soucek, Rudiger (12 between them) to Rashford, Digne, DCL, Zaha (45 between them) went pretty well

                Unfortunately Vardy (c) didn’t deliver (for the third week in a row 🙁 ), while Bruno did for his legion of cappers, thus only the tiniest of tiny green arrows from 78k > 77k despite 114 point GW score after hits

                Zaha’s penalty being missed by Mili + Rashford missing the 1:1 at the death stung... DCL missing Digne’s big chance created also was a killer

                Oh well 2 more weeks then back for more next year!

                    Did you see the header late on?

                    If Martinez didn’t save that it was an OR golden ticket given their ownerships vs Martinez’s

                135 pts despite Zaha and selling AWB to Maguire on WC. I can live with it, but both Jota and Rashford could have scored one more.

                Transfered in TAA, Greenwood and ESR on a -4. Played bench boost and scored 157 to push OR rank up to 2,480 so heading to bed pretty pleased with myself. Tomorrow we work on GW36 free hit squad

                1st sub: Smith-Rowe (19points)
                2nd sub: Keane (12 points)
                Played Watkins(-1) & Shaw(2)

                I scored 116 (which was above the top 10k average), but still received a 34% red arrow and moved from 161st to 216th.

                I am confused.

                    I'm now at 375 and the safety score (i.e. no rank drop) was 119 this week (I got 133 on Free Hit so went up 300 places.

                Smooth
                131-4, helped by probably my best hit of the season of Jota(10) Dias(1) Semedo(0) out, ESR(19), Digne(14) Taa(16) in, made even sweeter by the fact i benched Lingard's 1pt for ESR's 19, Also Bruno(c), Martinez, Son & Nacho delivering the goods 🙂

                Did Veltman and Son to Greenwood and Shaw for -4. Super smooth week overall. Bruno captain everyone returned apart from Shaw. 146-4 and up 10k places and broken into top 10k by 1 point

                177 (-8) for me, a PB.
                Went from 50k to 12k with a GW rank of 559.

                Looks like it’s been a great week for most, hopefully I can push on to top 10k from here.

                162 -4 with BB I have to mention Watkins -1 as being rough but 162 Smooooth

                Captained Salah over Bruno to get a rank jump, his late goal boosted OR from 20873 to 6100

                11 players for GW36 & 55 points clear at the top of my mini league that I've been trying to win for 15 years, best season ever!

                Best gameweek of the season. 132-(4) on BB, 191k gameweek rank.

                Smooth: Finally a decent BB! Took out McCarthy(0), Struijk(2) and Lucas Moura(0) for Guiata(8), Lindelof(2) and JWP(4) so 8 points up there plus already had Keane returning a mighty 12 to give me a 26 point BB. Bruno(c), Martinez, Konsa, Coufal, ALioski, Son, Salah, Nacho and Bamford all returning. Only Kane and Soucek letting the side down.

                Rough: Lindelof was a waste of a trade, but my only other options for 4.8 were Saints and they weren't any better anyway. Probably should have doubled on Everton in hindsight.

                Now on wildcard!

                Smooth: Did son and vydra to DCL and Greenwood for free so paid off. 133 with no chips, wish I'd have kept my bench boost to be honest, lesson learned for next year.
                Rough: no BB with Forster holding and alioski.

                Smooth. 133, 1st 100+ of season. Best BB in 4 years of FPL (1st over 20)

                Rough. Zaha trap, nearly went Eze instead lol

                Went with Bale over Son or Dallas as my only SGW player, other 2 on the bench. Sods law Bale 2, Son 7, Dallas 9

                Got Captain right though Bruno.
                And switched many times between Maguire and Shaw and luckily ended up on Shaw.

                All in all smooth GW - Phllips, Greenwood, AWB, DCL delivered all being slight differentials. Lingard and Kane only disappointments. So up from 21K to 14K - top 10K hopes still alive!

                OUT: Son (7) Kane (2) Sanchez (1) Coady (1) Lingard (1) - 12 Points
                In: Greenwood (19) DCL (11) Guiata (8) Digne (14) Zaha (4) - 56 Points

                Another smooth week - 18 green arrows in the last 22 weeks. My normal team from before last week's Free Hit will now come back and it was built to be ready for GW36 onwards.

                Free Hit squad with Bruno captain, Guaita, TAA, Greenwood, Salah and DCL as highlights for a total of 133 (no hits) and a rank rise of 675 to 375.

                That makes it a rise from rank 1,065,385 in GW 13 to 375 now and chasing the Always Cheating Super League and Reach Publishing mini league leaders, needing 35 and 24 points respectively to catch them.
