SCOUT’S GAMEWEEK 6 PICKS

The form of Pablo Fornals has been encouraging for West Ham. Whilst teammate Said Benrahma has attracted the high ownership and the plaudits, Fornals matched him for goal attempts during the first three Gameweeks and has taken more touches in the penalty area, 19 to 12. He has blanked in the last two matches but his ten chances created is second only to Jarrod Bowen at the club. The Spaniard finds himself up against a Leeds defence yet to register clean sheet, having conceded the league’s second-highest number of shots.

The only side to allow more chances is Newcastle, hence making Watford’s Joshua King a logical choice to beat his 6.5 target. He played his first 90 minutes for the club during last week’s 3-1 win over Norwich, assisting twice.

Ivan Toney faces a Liverpool defence that has kept four clean sheets from five, although they only rank seventh for shots conceded in the box. Brentford look good and the supremely confident Toney is also on penalty-taking duty.

Nelson Semedo’s touch heatmap shows a full-back who is playing very high up the field, ranking sixth amongst defenders for both touches and passes received in the final third. The only defender that has underachieved more in comparison to his xGI (expected goal involvement) is Joao Cancelo. This goal will come eventually and it could happen at Southampton.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has a low points target of 6.5 considering he loves facing Tottenham Hotspur. During his time at Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund, he has scored seven times in 11 matches against Spurs. He netted the only goal of the Gunners’ last home game and will back himself in a meeting that has averaged 3.33 goals per match from the past three seasons.

KARAM’S GAMEWEEK 6 PICKS

Son Heung-min is back from injury and north London derbies always bring a lot of action. It can go either way but I expect Son to do well. He has two goals and three assists in the last three starts against Arsenal.

We are still waiting for Raul Jimenez’s first goal of the season, and I have a feeling it will be in this match. Wolves’ assets are high up statistically and extremely underperforming. Maybe this is Raul’s game!

Brentford have looked solid defensively which made me question if Mohamed Salah can reach the Fantasy target but I expect Trent Alexander-Arnold to keep the clean sheet and hopefully an attacking return in what I think could be a tight game.

Allan Saint-Maximin is the driving force in the Newcastle team and they’ll be reliant on him to score goals in the absence of Callum Wilson.

Patrick Bamford is an injury risk for the weekend. However, if he starts, he has the potential to make light of a generous points target of 6.5.

HOW DOES FANTASY5 WORK?

Image

Fantasy5 is easy to play as it follows the exact same scoring system as FPL, just without the bonus points.

It’s also the fastest media outlet for live Fantasy points, displaying all player points from the five games in question, as well as the live score and time.

For the more detailed lowdown, head here.

The competition is limited to one entry per person per round and selections must be submitted before kick-off of the first eligible match.

If two or more entrants correctly select five players who all score more than their points target, then the prize pot is split among all winners.

    Pepe + Bamford > Gallagher + vardy -4
    Yay or nah

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      No. Wait for pressers anyway for Bam.

    2. pingissimus
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Nah - unless Bamford is ruled out but Bielsa is not especially trustworthy.

      Pepe is a hold imo. Under the radar but his stats look good and the good run is almost infinite.

      1. Sharkytect
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        I'm not sure that is fair. I can't remember Bielsa saying something that was misleading in a press conference, and he has been previously known to literally read out the team sheet (I have heard)

        1. pingissimus
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 6 days ago

          Was referring to last season when he pushed Bamford onto the pitch in GW29. Bamford in a pod after the match was clear that he wasn't fully fit - barely completed a match after that.

    Hi all, I had a baby less than 2 days ago. My team is the following, please tell me what to do. Cant keep up with if players are injured or not lol

    Sanchez (steele)

    Taa / Shaw/ marcal (White/ Williams)

    Greenwood / Jota/ sarr / salah (allan)

    Antonio Bamford lukaku

    Thanks!

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Bielsa has a press conference soon, I'd check that to see if Bamford is fit, otherwise looks good. Congrats.

    2. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Congratulations!

      Team is fine for this week. I'd just roll FT and try to find some time next week to decide what to do.

    3. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Congrats!

      Wait on the full quota of pressers tomorrow then make best informed decision.

      Nothing immediately jumps out there anyway. Maybe look to bring in Chelsea def on the assumption you have 2FT?

    4. pingissimus
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Greenwood Jota is looking suboptimal right now and a move to one of these looks about right (and template)

      A Gallagher
      B Gray
      C Townsend

      That would leave you cash to get Chelsea defence next week.

      1. pingissimus
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Oh and congrats

        You'll find that you'll have an unexpected amount of time for FPL fiddling during sleepless nights 🙂

        1. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 6 days ago

          My son is nearly 2 and still wakes up in the night most nights so I'm normally early to see what prices changes there are so this is very true! Congrats Mantis!

    5. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Congrats and all of the best!

    6. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Congrats.

      You are looking good this week, so I would roll, but as others have said Jota and particularly Greenwood are on borrowed time. Firmino's Brazil situation may make Jota away to Watford a go-er. Jota only seems to score way anyway.

      Like everyone else and my team too, i need a couple of midfield downgrades (probably Gallagher in my case), to beef up defence, but tat can wait until GW7 in case of Chelea and GW8 for Man City

    7. The Mantis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Thanks all for the help, much appreciated! And cheers for your wishes n'all - seems I'm not alone in this haha

    8. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Get as much rest as you can, whenever you can.

      Look after yourself so that you can look after you other half and the baby (stereotypically assuming you are the dad here but it still applies for the mum!).

      Enjoy every minute you can with the tiny little baby. It's a very special time when they are that small and utterly dependent on you.

      Hold transfers until next week - Greenwood + Jota both capable of hauls this week but may also be out of favour by next gameweek.

      Make sure you are well stocked up on muslins. Have a pile in every room of the house.

    9. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Congratulations! Just one little thing - there's some talk of Marçal being dropped after poor performance last week, but White should be fine cover for this week

  3. FOO FIGHTER
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 6 days ago

    Thinking if I had to get rid of Lukaku to free up cash for upgrades in a couple of weeks from now, DCL would be his best replacement once he is match fit?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Have Ronaldo and Antonio

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 6 days ago

      DCL once he is fit, vardy may be.

    3. pingissimus
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Perhaps but the good run ends quite quickly

      Vardy and even Auba are alternatives here. If Arsenal pull together then they are intriguing - very nearly top of the ticker for ages. Auba could be a really solid pick in a team playing once a week and If Laca is down the order.

  4. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 6 days ago

    Start Sanchez or Foster?

    1. Finding Timo
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Same dilemma as both have similar cleansheet odds but may go Sanchez as Brighton better defence ?

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Zaha's record vs Brighton apparently very good.

  5. Bavarian
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 6 days ago

    Any changes needed? or G2G mates?

    Guaita
    TAA-Shaw-Semedo
    Salah-Jota-Raphinha-Sarr
    Antonio-Ronaldo-Jimenez

    Steer-Livramento-Allan-White

    0.8 ITB and 1FT
    Next week transfer = Semedo > Rudiger

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Good to go, I'd be tempted to play Livramento over Semedo

      1. Bavarian
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Playing Jimenez, hoping he will hit the form and score.

  6. OneArseneWenger32
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 6 days ago

    bamford doesn't sound promising..seems like its back to antonio for those who made the switch last week

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

      Presser hasn’t happened yet?

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah, this?

  7. chaser123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 6 days ago

    Thinking ahead to my upcoming wildcard....

    Thoughts on 5 heavy hitters at the back?

    TAA Dias Cancel Alonso Rudiger looks pretty tasty....

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      Yeah it's tempting but I'd prefer at least one cheap defender to allow upgrades elsewhere

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Yeh one of them could be Livramento I suppose. But I don't see any attractive midfielders at ~£8m?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 6 days ago

          Not a bad point. The mid priced midfielders are really not ripping up trees.

        2. Traction Engine Foot
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 6 days ago

          True but I expect that will change at some point

          1. chaser123
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 6 days ago

            True but fairly easy 2 transfers to get there if that happens?

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 6 days ago

      They Won't keep this record forever that's for sure.

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Don't need to necessarily to still be good options!?

    3. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      I would probably go with 4 of those + Livra

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        See below - where does the cash go? Which player do you upgrade?

    4. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 6 days ago

      No, any given week you could have cancelo and Alonso miss out - I’d have either of those but not both.

      1. chaser123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Yeh fair point but likely to have 3 of them playing!?

        Would give a squad of something like this:

        Sanchez 4.0
        TAA Cancelo Dias Rudiger Alonso
        Salah Jota Raphinha Benrahma 4.5
        Lukaku Antonio 4.5

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 6 days ago

          I would downgrade cancelo to someone nailed like coufal or go cheaper to livra and leave a million itb to get Ronaldo

  8. Traction Engine Foot
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 6 days ago

    Did Barnes to Sarr, it's very nice not to have to look at Barnes in my team anymore even though he'll probably score against Burnley now. Good to go?

    Sanchez
    TAA Shaw Livramento
    Salah Jota Greenwood Sarr Benrahma
    Ronaldo Antonio
    Steele White Ayling Perica

    1ft and 1.2m itb

    1. Bavarian
      • 4 Years

      Nice team, good luck

      Ok

    2. Harry the Hack

  10. Mahjongking
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 6 days ago

    What to do with auba?

    1. Bavarian
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      sell

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      sell

  11. VIVA_RONALDO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 6 days ago

    0.1 short of doing Jota + Toney to Sarr + Antonio. Would you rather pick Gallagher or Traore in that case

  12. More Cowbell
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years

    Breaking: Bamford is OUT as per Bielsa press conference

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      out is a strong word..but sure is looking that way

      1. More Cowbell
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years

        Out = Confirmed he will not play at the weekend

        Raph and Ayling unclear if they will feature

  13. gooberman

    What a disappointing set of live sky games on the sunday and monday. No interest in any of them. Cant believe the Chelsea v City game is a Saturday 12.30 kick off and not live on Sky.

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 6 days ago

      at least I can watch the NLD without caring who gets points

    2. Qaiss

      Does the world revolve around you then?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Wind it in. Was just making an observation that the Sunday and Monday live games will carry little interest FPL wise for most and Chelsea City is a game you would expect to see live on sky on a Sunday. Surprised it isn't.

    Michail Antonio has never scored in nine previous league appearances against Leeds – he has not faced an opponent more often without scoring in English football.

    1. Oi! Shadders!

      Leeds probably had at least half a defence in previous meetings.

      "In 4 out of 9 of those games, he played 13 mins, 1 min, 28 mins, and 12 mins

      In the other 5 games, he only played as a CF against them once

      Even ignoring all of that, some of this data is over 10 years old..."

      He was only at West Ham for one of these games as well.

        1. Nomar

        Start Coady or White this weekend? Currently on Coady as surely Kane and Son between them will get something?

        Looking on the bright side, Bamford out makes my starting benchie a bit easier to decide on.

        Do we assume no mention of Raph means he plays?

          No, but we can assume to make ourselves feel better

            No mention of Raphinha not necessarily mean he's fit - keeping in view the wording of the presser posted above

          Play Livra or Semedo?

          1. Cruyff's Eleven
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 6 days ago

            Both

            1. mojoindojo
              • 8 Years
              4 months, 6 days ago

              Can't. Alonso and TAA other two.

                4 months, 6 days ago

                I've TAA and Shaw, still playing both.

          Who would be your maverick captain choice this GW? (No Ronaldo Salah Antonio)

          1. Cok3y5murf
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 6 days ago

            Mane

            Rondon

          3. pingissimus
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 6 days ago

            Mane if you have him

            Antonio shouldn't be considered maverick really given form and oppo.

            A truly maverick choice would be Zaha. He does like a goal against Brighton.

          In a bit of a pickle, do I bench Bamford? Or take a -4 to transfer him out for someone else.

          Sanchez
          Trent - Rudiger - Livra
          Salah - Jota - Torres - Gray
          Bamf - Antonio - CR7

          Bench: Steele - Sissoko - Marcal - Williams

          1. G Banger
            • 3 Years

            Same question, with a worse team!

            1. Kodap
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 6 days ago

              Haha not ideal, I might just play Sissoko..

                4 months, 6 days ago

                Gilmour for me, maybe he'll get something with Everton woes!

          Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Bielsa gave a further update as we edge closer to Saturday’s match.

          He said: “Diego Llorente, Robin Koch and Patrick Bamford won’t be available.

          “The rest of them I couldn’t tell you if they will be or they won’t be.
