Gameweek Guide

The Complete Guide to Scout’s tips and advice for Blank Gameweek 36

Blank Gameweek 36 thrusts the likes of Leeds United and Manchester City into contention for our Fantasy Premier League teams, while Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) is rivaling Harry Kane (£11.8m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) for the captain’s armband.

And Fantasy managers are wondering what to do with their Manchester United assets. Following their three matches in Gameweek 35, Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men are one of four sides without a fixture in Gameweek 36 along with Arsenal and FA Cup finalists Chelsea and Leicester City.

There are only three rounds to go and after a Friday deadline of 18:30 BST, a heads up that Gameweek 37 kicks off on Tuesday afternoon.

Sensible Salah

Top of the captain poll and with attacking returns in each of his last five starts, Mohamed Salah would appear the sensible option for the captaincy. A motivated Liverpool side, chasing a top-four spot for a place in next season’s Champions League, face an already-relegated West Brom. 

In addition, Salah has personal motivation as he tussles with Harry Kane for the Golden Boot, the pair currently tied on 21 goals apiece. 

Salah and Kane, unsurprisingly, claim the top two spots in Jan’s Captain Sensible article and with our four Scout Picks selectors. Of that quintet, only Neale has opted for Kane ahead of Salah.

There is, however, some difference of opinion over who might be the best alternative captain for those looking to take a risk and claw back lost ground in the rankings.

Both Jan and Neale favour a Man City player, with Riyad Mahrez (£8.0m) and Phil Foden (£6.0m) their preferred options in the absence of Kevin De Bruyne, while David, Tom and Andy all back Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Although David questioned the explosive potential of Calvert-Lewin on this week’s Captaincy Video with Joe, pointing out that only three times this season has the Everton striker produced more than one attacking return – a key consideration for our armband holders.

While Andy, despite picking Calvert-Lewin in third, promoted the credentials of Foden and Mahrez:

Both [Foden and Mahrez] look like great explosive options but Mahrez would be ahead for me, given that he averages 5.4 points per match this season and has great underlying numbers.

Mahrez has more than double the expected goal involvement of Foden over their last six matches (2.72 vs 1.34) and could be on penalty duties. 

When backing the Algerian as his top differential captain, Jan pointed to a weakness in the Newcastle defence that could bode well for his attacking prospects:

Another reason why a Mahrez captaincy could turn out to be successful is Newcastle’s inability to defend the left side of the pitch. Three of their last five goals conceded came from the area Mahrez usually excels in.

Time to let Iheanach-go?

A blank followed by a trip to Chelsea and the final day visit of Tottenham Hotspur is leading many to consider selling the in-form Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.3m). The Foxes forward has scored or assisted in eight of the past nine Gameweeks, albeit against generally easier opposition.

Looking to cement her position in the top 50k, Sam has made her mind up:

Selling… Kelechi Iheanacho is a more painful decision. The Nigerian international has been the height of consistency so far, returning in his last five Premier League matches. However, Blank Gameweek 36, followed by the league’s best defence in Chelsea in Gameweek 37 means he has to make way.

The Spurs fan plans to bring in Calvert-Lewin as her replacement, but for fellow Pro Pundit Andy, Everton’s matches after their enticing home encounter with Sheffield United mean he is looking elsewhere. The Toffees face Wolves and Man City to close the season.

Similarly priced to Iheanacho, Patrick Bamford (£6.4m) and Michail Antonio (£6.5m) were the two candidates he considered. But with both Leeds and West Ham playing Southampton and West Brom in Gameweeks 37 and 38, Andy feels that Bamford has the better fixture in this round. West Ham’s opponents Brighton have been defensively sound and are unlikely to be pushovers despite the loss of Lewis Dunk to suspension.

But fixtures aren’t the only reason behind Andy’s decision:

Antonio’s injury record, which may mean another transfer before the season’s end, and Bamford being on penalties.

Thank you for the good times

It may seem a little harsh to discard Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m) after the most-popular player in FPL rewarded his owners with 19 points across his three appearances in Gameweek 35, but there’s no room for sentiment at this stage of the campaign. 

I think it is perfectly fine to ditch your Manchester United players now.

– Lateriser

Man United fans Lateriser and Andy agreed that there could be an advantage to be gained by selling.

Bruno Fernandes to Son Heung-min gives you pretty much three starts over the next three Gameweeks; Fernandes may only get one.

– Andy

As Lateriser pointed out, Manchester United play their Gameweek 38 fixture three days prior to the Europa League final, which could mean rests or at least limited minutes for their main protagonists.

A switch to Son Heung-min (£9.6m) could prove profitable. The South Korean has a goal in each of his last three matches and is included in the Scout Picks:

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.

– Scout Picks

Flying Fullbacks

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

A trio of full-backs have been highlighted by our experts ahead of the deadline. 

Seamus Coleman (£4.9m) headlines Tom’s differential picks, with the Pro Pundit revealing how a recent formation change to 3-5-2 has given the Irishman license to get forward.

Over the last six Gameweeks Coleman’s 11 chances created is level with that of his colleague on the opposite flank, Lucas Digne (£6.2m), who impressed David against Aston Villa:

[Digne] laid on three key passes at Villa Park, more than any other player. 

And Duncan Young (aka Statto99) believes there’s only one option to consider among Leeds United’s backline

Even at his current price, [Stuart Dallas] represents great value with a points-per-match average (4.5) better than any defender not playing for a Champions League finalist.

Enjoy the run-in

Seb looked for the positives from a disappointing campaign as he shared his thoughts on how to play the final Gameweeks for those in a similar position:

Experiment with transfers, selections or captains you may not usually go for. See what works, what does not and what could be added to your repertoire for next time.

While for Sam, a rare points hit is on the cards:  

One thing is certain, fielding 11 players for me will be the right thing, even if that means taking only my second -4 of the season.

Community Competitions and Head-to-Head Fixtures

RedLightning has brought us his regular community competitions update and revealed the FFS cup winners:

The FFS Open Cup winner is Genovoze, who scored 133 without the aid of a chip and defeated Mince n Tatties by a single point after the latter scored a Bench Boosted 136(-4).

The third-place play-off was won by Jambo17 (aka Callum Croal), who won 112-106 against FPL Bielsa.

The FFS Members Cup winner is Mohd Rodzi, who beat EUG 132-121.

The third-place play-off was won by Rossaldinho, whose 122 points proved sufficient to defeat SUNFLOWER. The latter’s wildcard only returned a disappointing 100 points – normally an excellent Gameweek score, but not this time!

TopMarx Fan of Fantasy Football and Monty Python. "Archimedes out to Socrates, Socrates back to Archimedes, Archimedes out to Heraclitus, he beats Hegel. Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.”

        World number 2 going DCL is pretty interesting (though forced as they don't have Salah).

      Are you actually serious that Jan Sienkiewicz has ZERO city players after the Man City section of this article?! (Hit off the press just after midday today too)

      https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2021/05/14/who-is-the-best-fpl-captain-for-blank-gameweek-36/

      FFS needs to do something about this - you can’t have this type of misleading information put to print with zero consequences

      How many new/inexperienced managers would have trusted his (ridiculous) guessing dressed up as advice?

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        He actually made 4 transfers too - and (sensibly) chose to go nowhere near Man City with a barge pole

        Yet his article lauds Foden & Mahrez as “top captaincy picks” and “Their European form is the best indicator of their GW36 points potential”

        Wow

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 9 days ago

          Yeah I did think that. He wrote up Mahrez pretty compellingly!

        2. Overated Mou
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 9 days ago

          Well..
          Many things may hv happend after he wrote the article to be fair mate
          Its our decision in the end though

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 9 days ago

            The article was out earlier this afternoon, not yesterday, not last week... earlier this afternoon

            1. Overated Mou
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 9 days ago

              I get your point mate
              Maybe he suddenly decides to stay clear of city after writing it
              Or he heard the rumour and changed his mind. Just may be...
              I understand totally what you mean though buddy

        3. Essan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 9 days ago

          it was his comments that persuaded me to go for Foden (couldn't afford Mahrez) 🙁

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 9 days ago

            I couldn’t believe what I was reading - knew a lot of people would take his advice (understandably given the lengths FFS go to publicise the industry leading pro pundits and content etc)

            And not that the players were guaranteed to be benched either - far from it - but the first rule of FPL is you do NOT second guess Pep - or at least don’t do it without a MASSIVE health warning

            The fact that he didn’t go anywhere near to backing his own advice despite making 4 transfers is a bit disturbing tbh

            1. Bushwhacker
              • 2 Years
              4 months, 9 days ago

              That's pretty shocking tbh.

        4. Keeptrying
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 9 days ago

          Wow. He also made three of those transfers early in the week, and one this evening.
          So in between he still had the audacity to write up something like that.
          Interesting. Should have come with lots of disclaimers.

      2. Milkman Bruno
        4 months, 9 days ago

        You can recommend players that you don’t own surely?

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 9 days ago

          There’s recommending players

          And then there’s confidently stating that Pep Guardiola (of all people) will pick player X, Y, Z...

          Then doubling down and saying that those players X, Y and Z are excellent captaincy choices...

          Then making FOUR transfers...

          Then not even transferring in one of player X, Y, or Z (let alone captaining)

          It’s insane

          1. Milkman Bruno
            4 months, 9 days ago

            Ok, yeah I agree that is strange. Sorry, I have not read his article and I don’t follow anyone for FPL or anything other than come on this site. I’m not on Twitter or Instagram or any of that.

      4 months, 9 days ago

      I didn’t fall for his lies but agree Jan Sienkiewicz should be removed from the site, if this was the real world he’d be fired or reported to a regulator for spreading misinformation but this is fantasy and the site needs the clicks

      1. Rassi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        Harsh. Maybe he changed his plans after hearing the rumors of these benchings or sth? We don't know.

        1. Keeptrying
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 9 days ago

          He made three transfers on the 10th of May. Then one transfer this evening.
          At the very least he should have mentioned his own intentions or the fact he already made transfers which did include none of those recommendations.
          I am not affected by this.

          Some will give him the benefit of the doubt, others might call that two-faced or worse.

          1. Rassi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 9 days ago

            Ok, fair enough. I'm just astonished how upset some people are over this.

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • 11 Years
              4 months, 9 days ago

              This isn’t a normal situation

              He very bullishly predicted city team lineups (thin ice at the best of times), and then very bullishly backed two city attackers as “top captaincy picks”

              He then proceeded to make not one, not two, not three, but FOUR transfers... and guess how many of those transfers were the city players he was raving about in the article?

              As I was reading he article I was thinking to cannot be serious here at predicting Pep of all people

              If he’d backed his own advice it wouldn’t be as bad (it would just be the misleading info factor)

              But he knew rightly himself that he wouldn’t take those risks with his own team, yet was fine with others taking the risks for him

              Disgraceful imo

              There needs to be some sort of control on that type of thing

              1. Keeptrying
                • 7 Years
                4 months, 9 days ago

                Maybe needs to be highlighted separately.
                At the moment it is hidden in the replies.

      2. Keeptrying
        • 7 Years

        Agree. Sadly everything you wrote is true.

          Aguero (c) Salah (vc) plus down to 10.

          Just so dissapointing. Game tonight ruined

      Crazy benching! Darren Wiles also went Mahrez - top 600 finishes in 3 of the last 4 seasons https://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/1331101/event/36

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        Mahrez could come on if Man City are trailing to inject some further attacking zeal and panache.

    Chasing rival 40 point gap Salah my captain dcl his! Now or never!

    1. MIGHTY JOE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Would have guessed the opposite captain choices, but oh well. Best of luck!

        You too (Y)

  8. CR7 is Home
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    FFS myself to blame, El mhdy, Mitchell and Brewster coming in from the bench on FH

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      I thought I was bad

      El Ghazi, Phillips, Mitchell coming on in FH.

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Same here fella. Although I do have a semi-decent bench (Dallas, Welbeck, Mitchell)

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Brewster to finally get a goal? It is Everton at home after all

      1. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years

        More chance of Asa Hartford starting next week for City

      2. CR7 is Home
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        Will he even start?

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 9 days ago

          Decent chance with McBurnie, Sharp and Burke out

      3. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        Sure to happen, after Foden and Mahrez have come on for single pointers.

  9. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    Ederson, Foden and Mahrez (c) on FH.

      There are better options since City won the league.

    Just about avoided Mahrez/Foden and my rival has Ederson. Thank you Pep

  11. smix

    Mahrez (c) for a hit mega fail !! Hoping DCL (vc) works out well atleast

    1. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Should come on

      1. smix
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        Hope he comes in at half time & scores a hattrick

        1. justaguy9
          4 months, 9 days ago

          Or comes at 80 mins and gets a 1 pointer

  12. Champions League Varane

    -8 for Mahrez going well 🙂

    2. Magic Zico

        I looked into this and it's a potential... but they have let up sooooooooo many chances

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nobody bit. My condolences.

  15. Yome
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    People are bonkers bringing or captaining City players. Come on. they won the league so of course Pep will play fringe players.

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Jeez, the Captain Hindsights are out in force this eveing

      1. Yome
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        There were so many better options for captains than City players. It is so obvious.

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          4 months, 9 days ago

          I don’t disagree about the point about captains. But your post seems built around your comment about fringe players when it clearly wasn’t obvious at all.

    2. justaguy9
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Next game first team will play

    3. james 101
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      It was fine when aguero and kdb were dominating and playing most games.

      I literally have zero city players as they just seem like a risk.

      Doesn’t mean I don’t understand people wanting them. Mahrez is quality. Unlucky gents.

      1. justaguy9
        4 months, 9 days ago

        I had dias since some time. Kept him as more important transfers to do

      2. Yome
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        I sold Dias for the triple gameweek. No more city players til the end of the season

    4. Nomar
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      They still have to play 11 players every game though. Not unreasonable to think someone like Foden who doesn’t start every game would start now.

      Mind you, we’re not all super clever like you obviously are, so there is that to consider.

    5. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      I have zero City players, but I think these hindsightey posts make you look like an a-hole.

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        I'm hoping his post was meant to be observational & exploratory rather than a hindsight dig. There are lessons to be learned from all moves, whether they are successful or not.

        I also entertained a City move, but thought it risky compared to other talismanic type players(yet to play out ofc)

        I reckon the question is: Knowing the Pep rotation risk; how much of a gamble were mgrs taking? It certainly wasn't a safe move. The risk was a 2nd guess gamble to climb the the ranks. High risk; Maybe high reward, but in this case the gamble hasn't paid off in lineup(so far). Game on - let's see 🙂

    6. Salarrivederci
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Normally yes, but dude come on 😀
      After these 3 games they play Chelsea (to whom they last the FA Cup semi and last PL match against).
      They need high moral and match fit players. They can't let their first team sit unemployed nearly three weeks and then play them against a fully match fit Chelsea squad who won the last two outings.

      The fact that I even had to explain the above to mr. cpt. hindsight is bonkers.

      But oh well. Brought in Gündo and Foden myself. Hopefully Gündo go bananas, and Foden gets half an hour.
      Mahrez, Foden, Dias, Stones & Ederson will start the next two.

  16. justaguy9
    4 months, 9 days ago

    Good i took a - 8. Hopefully ward can get a cs coming on for dias.

  17. bitm2007
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    4 months, 9 days ago

    I'd be having a decent season if it wasn't for the chips.

    TC double blank from DCL in GW26.
    BB 6 points in GW34
    FH in GW35 with Stones, Foden and Mahrez in (bench El Ghazi, Phillips, Mitchell)

  18. Don Kloppeone

    Ugh can’t believe none of my rivals went for MCI this week. Thought I’d finally found my chance to pounce!

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Same.

      Both my main rivals have 30k ranks.

  19. smix
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    Mahrez coming on at halftime & scoring a hattrick on the horizon then

  20. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    You just LOVE to see that city line up oh yes u do!

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Ha.

  21. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    Really shocked Salah is so high at 171% EO, especially with Kane vs Wolves

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Would be different if Kane had some attacking returns in the last 2

    2. Herman Toothrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      *Bale at home Vs Wolves

  22. mixology
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    Just seeing lineups

    I’m not planning to own city players but seems like Pep may give his first 11 both of the last two matches for rhythm, no?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Pointless predicting Pep.

    2. smix
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Only pep knows !

      1. mixology
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        Agreed. Was always steering clear

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Possible.

      Pretty predictable that both Mahrez and Foden would be benched up at Newcastle on a Friday night.

      The attacking talent needs to be protected whilst Chelsea slog out league and Cup games.

  23. Herman Toothrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    Pep not playing the players we thought he would?

    Shocked face.

  24. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    Wow, Top 10k average hit was - 3.51.

    Congrats to anyone going in on 0!

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Thankyou

      *though I did WC

  25. Lindelol
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    Pep can win FPL quite easily if he starts playing

  26. No Kane No Gain
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    Foolishly played Pope instead of Martinez as my rival who I am chasing has Martinez. But he benched him too for
    McCarthy!

    Chances of Pope actually being injured and not playing this weekend?!

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Dyche said Pope has some issue with his shoulder so it could happen

  27. Milkman Bruno
    4 months, 9 days ago

    😆 Steve Bruce looked starstruck speaking with Pep before the game

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      He had a Wayne’s world moment?

  28. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 9 days ago

    Looking like the only player from City & Chelsea combined that will really be useful for FPL a will be whichever marquee #9 they sign

    Dias will be 6.5 along with Cancelo... Stones and Laporte will be rotating, Gundo will get a massive increase, Tucehl will rotate literally every Chelsea player

    Won’t mind not picking any players from either tbh - bit of a false economy with hem even though they’ll probably fill 2 of the top 3 league positions next season

    1. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Wise words MBP, a sentiment I share. This season has proved that there are untapped players from outside those two. It's about value and not always having the best looking team on paper. Time for a rethink when this dreadful season is over. I love this game though.

    2. justaguy9
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Probably less rotation in beginning of season.

  29. justaguy9
    4 months, 9 days ago

    Where is aguero going after this season?

  30. BeaversWithAttitude
    • 3 Years

    Geez, how much rest does John Stones need? He'll go from rested to rusty at this rate...

    1. Gizzachance
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Nearly brought him in!
