Allsvenskan Fantasy 2021 – Scout Picks GW14

It’s been a while since anything was published here by me other than hot topics, in my absence however @BitacoraFantasy has been doing an excellent job with the “ones to watch”-series. If you want to write something about Allsvenskan Fantasy yourself, it’s really quite a straightforward process and the submission form for community articles can be found here. Also, if you have any ideas of topics to cover or you feel inclined to become a part of the tight-knit team working regularly with Allsvenskan Fantasy on Fantasy Football Scout, just reach out to me here or on Twitter @FF_Meltens.

With Gameweek 14 kicking off this weekend, we are faced with the increasingly real threat of rotation from Malmö, Elfsborg, and Hammarby. Some managers might be activating the first wildcard this week (just 1 more GW after this before it’s gone) and undeniably there will be some planning to do in terms of squad depth, and chip strategy.

Scout Picks

The Scout Picks selection are 11 players hand-picked as the best options for the week, with no more than 3 players from one team and within a budget of 83.5m. The full article on our Scout Picks for GW14 in Allsvenskan Fantasy can be found here.

In short, however, the picks for Gameweek 14 are:

Peter Abrahamsson (6.4m)

Jean Carlos de Brito (4.7m), Eric Larsson (7.2m), Simon Strand (6.1m)

Nahir Besara (8.6m), Magnus Eriksson (9.5m), Tashreeq Matthews (5.2m), Daleho Irandust (8.9m)

Deniz Hümmet (6.2m), Samuel Adegbenro (7.8m), Alexander Jeremejeff (9.3m)

The Captain Pick this week is Nahir Besara at home to Mjällby.

    Nice picks. This is the last week before Wildcarding. Debating if I should have pulled the trigger this week, but fixture turns and transfer deadline next week may provide a (hopefully) upside with waiting.

      Yeah I figured I’d mostly want the same players next week and rotation will be as much of a factor then as it is now so took the plunge!

      Can definitely see the point in waiting though, just don’t forget to use it! 🙂

    GW14 is just around the corner with a kickoff time of 15.30 CET! If we are lucky we might get some team news ahead of the deadline.

    A tricky week for captaincy, who are you placing the armband on?

      Besara or Witry seems like good ”cap”-opts.
      But who’s the best pick

      1. Meltens
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        I think Besara looks good!

    2. General Nuisance
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      No option I feel assured with. Witry, Eriksson and Besara all options, maybe even Strand.

      1. Meltens
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        Definitely a tight one this gw

      I've transferred Besara in this week to replace Amoo so I think I'm going to go with him for the captaincy.

      1. Meltens
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 5 Years

        Nice! 🙂

    4. Mullered in Maenam
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Transferred in Besara as well and (C) for me.

        Nice Johnny! On WC myself so hoping for an instant payoff

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          I needed that Chip last week to pip you, I getting the feeling you'll be catching me soon! Good luck with the WC.

    5. Make Arrows Green Again

      Witry for me, he rarely lets me down. Good luck all!

  4. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Who is this Tella?
    Is he nailed and attacking?

  5. Exxtreme
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Got Besara and Hummet in. No sign of Hummet thou.

  6. SUNFLOWER

    Sounds like Witry’s off to join Jesper Karlsson at AZ Alkmaar. Farewell to Allsvenskan’s answer to TAA. 13 goals and 12 assists in 74 games across Allsvenskan and the Swedish Cup and a stalwart in almost half of all fantasy teams. Not easily replaced! Who are people considering? Paulsen has had great returns since rejoining Hammarby, while Eric Larsson at Malmö looks good but rotation is a bit of a concern.

    1. Meltens
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I think Paulsen is being criminally overlooked with the argument that “Hammarby is bad defensively”. His attacking threat is massive and he does a lot in defence as well that leads to DBs, as we can see from the 4 games played so far.

      Otherwise it’s Milosovic/Otieno if you don’t already have him for me. Larsson’s rotation risk is going to be so big in the coming weeks, I don’t think it’s worth the hazzle even if he’s a great player

      1. SUNFLOWER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Completely agree about Paulsen. I’ve had him in my team since GW13 and have been a very happy owner so far!

        I already own Otieno so I could look at bringing in Milosevic, particularly with Otieno being suspended. Otherwise, I think I’ll look at downgrading and freeing up the funds to move further up.

  7. General Nuisance

    On a wildcard. Plenty of things to consider, among them Witry replacement. Welcoming input.

    MNS
    Witry, Strand, Otieno (suspended), Paulsen, Wendt
    Eriksson, Chilufya, Besara, Matthews, Amoo
    Jeremejeff, Edvardsen, Mortensen

    1. Meltens
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I like Milosevic a lot but it depends on if you maybe want to push some funds further up the field. I’d avoid Amoo 100% and Chili could also make way if you’re so inclined, think he’s better than Amoo though

      1. General Nuisance
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Thanks!

        My main concern is if I should bring in AC or not. He takes up a huge chunk of funds, and weakens the rest of the team. I am worried about the game vs. Degerfors, he is a captaincy option, but Malmö have CL qualifications to prepare for.

        1. Meltens
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          I can see him being rested for that game, maybe even suspended on purpose to get it out of the way? He is on 2 YC and they have some harder fixtures coming up, would make sense to take a tactical YC this GW.

          1. General Nuisance
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 16 days ago

            Thanks! I agree that the Degerfors is the one he may be rested/suspended.

    What happened to Johan Larsson?

    1. Meltens
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Seems to be nursing an injury and they prefer to have him for the European games while they’re still in it. Would steer clear a little while until things eases up a bit there

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

        Thanks for clarifying! 🙂

        I have an Elfsborg double up with Strand and Larsson, so been missing out on points recently. Time to go shop for a defender...
