Scout Picks

FPL Gameweek 7 Scout Picks built on Chelsea triple-up

There’s not a Liverpool or Manchester City player in sight in our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Scout Picks for Gameweek 7.

A Chelsea triple-up instead forms the spine of the side this week, with eight other teams represented in the remaining spots.

After Sam, Az, Neale and Tom submitted their Scout Squad selections earlier this week, we have chosen our best players ahead of tomorrow’s 11:00 BST deadline.

We line up in a 3-4-3 formation and come in at £81.9m, well under our £83.0m budget.

GOALKEEPER

The best goalkeepers for UEFA Champions League Fantasy

With 17 clean sheets in 25 Premier League matches since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel in January, Edouard Mendy (£6.0m) is the first of two Chelsea backline options in this week’s Scout Picks. The Blues’ stopper has kept three clean sheets in five games so far this season, and is the fourth-highest scoring goalkeeper in FPL despite missing a week. His numbers are impressive, too, given that his 3.45 saves per 90 minutes ranks fifth – only behind Karl Darlow (£4.5m), Illan Meslier (£5.0m), Ben Foster (£4.0m) and Hugo Lloris (£5.6m) – while his 5.5 minutes-per-baseline-bonus (BBPS) is also encouraging, and suggests that he could be in the mix when Chelsea do keep a clean sheet. Against a Southampton side that is goalless in three matches, Mendy’s inclusion makes a lot of sense.

    Should have stuck with Trent

    1. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Where's that coming from?

  2. mojoindojo
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Play up Lukaku(C)

  3. SADIO SANÉ

    No Son!? Madness

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Son is in them

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Oh ha, assumed he wouldn’t be - kinda madness that he is

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Madness that he's in or not?

  4. Flaming Flamingo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Rare question from me. Which transfers to do this week pre-wildcard?

    A) TAA and Traore > Chilwell and Mount (Ronaldo captain)

    B) TAA and Armstrong > Chilwell and Jimenez (Ronaldo captain)

    C) Salah and Armstrong > Mount and Lukaku (Lukaku captain, but down to 10 men if Shaw doesn't feature)

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Why prewildcard in an unlikely starter in Chilwell?

      1. Flaming Flamingo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        It's a risk, but I think he starts personally. Semedo is a safer alternative, although lower ceiling obviously

    2. Boxwoods
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Don’t really love any of them, mate.

      1. Flaming Flamingo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        No worries, neither do I really which is why I posted. It doesn't feel like a very good week for one week punts with the uncertainty around Chelsea and lack of explosive options elsewhere

    3. Forgetmeknot
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I’m getting Chris Wood in as my one week punt

      1. Flaming Flamingo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Definitely has the fixture, I just trust Jimenez more. Although targeting Norwich has been a good strategy this far

      2. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        That's a good punt

  5. pwill40
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    wild card team with Salah, Ronnie & Lukaku... Do I ned to ditch one to strengthen elsewhere??

    Sanchez / Ramsdale
    Liv / White / Dias / Rudiger / Duffy
    Grealish / Salah / Raph / Sarr / Allan
    Ronnie / Lukaku / 4.5

    1. pwill40
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Ditching Ronnie would give me Antonio + Toney upfront and upgrade a keeper to Mendy and White to Cancelo! Maybe I just convinced myself!

      1. AEsop
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Good moves! Will give you more balenced team. I also ditched him (Ron--》Vardy) to fit Cancelo and Rudiger for Cristensen and Marcal.

  6. Lord of Ings
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    1. pwill40
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      1. Lord of Ings
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

    2. F4L
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Alonso if your bench is strong

      1. Lord of Ings
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        My bench isn’t strong at all
        Will probably go Rudiger then?

        1. F4L
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          yeah sensible choice

    Ramsdale
    Rudiger Cancelo Alonso

    1. I'M VARANE GRATEFUL
      • 4 Years

      Ronaldo to hattie. I'd ship Alonso for Azpi.

      1. DeltaKilo
        • 10 Years

        Ronaldo to be benched more like it 😉

    Is this true? Or twitter spreading rumors
    https://twitter.com/OddsOnFPL/status/1443980654056820740?s=19

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I'd say its odds on

    2. Revival

      it's just a theory by the person who posted the tweet. No substance to it at all.

  12. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Bottomed, friends, so let me try and make it less demanding; go as is, take a hit or WC?

    Meslier
    Rüdiger, Marçal, Livramento
    Salah, Jota, Torres, Raphinha, Benrahma
    Ronaldo, Antonio

    No bench with TAA out.

      • 4 Years

      Thoughts on this wildcard? Going without Trent untill I figure out what formation to play.

      Ramsdale
      Cancelo Rudiger Walker Tomiyasu **
      Salah Raphina Sarr **
      Lukaku ** Antonio

      Fill out the gaps:

      A) Auba + Livra + 0.6 itb
      B) Jesus + Alonso + 0.3 itb
      C) Something Else?

      1. TheBiffas
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Vardy + Livra

    8. pwill40
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      pinnock or marcal (on a wc)

      1. polis
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Neither

        1. Eh, just one more thing ...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Better options, I’d avoid both

        2. pwill40
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          yeah jus come to that conclusion as well 🙂 upgraded to Dias and downgraded in mid...

          my choice is now...

          Gray v Smith Rowe (or any other sub 5.7M mid)

          1. Eh, just one more thing ...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Smith Rowe … mbueno … Gallagher …. Sorry that’s not helping lol …

    9. Fantasyfreakstradbally
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Is nobody putting the armband on salah?
      Don’t have Lukaku (WC next week) have Ron. But 12.30 KO and united not pulling trees! Everton be no cakewalk either.

      City is a tough fixture obviously. Great defensive stats but salah is salah and he’s playing better now than in previous season which says something.

      1. Fantasyfreakstradbally
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        Well I guess I was right then lol:)

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      5. DeltaKilo
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Because he is old and played 90 midweek. He has to be rested at some stage

      6. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

      • 7 Years

      Have 2 FT and 0.2 ITB. Don't think I need to wildcard and so which option looks best? Wondering if it's better to have 2 FTs after the int'l break and so keep Bruno and delay getting Raph by one GW?

      A - Shaw > Rudiger and save 1 FT
      B - Shaw & Bruno > Alonso & Raph
      C - Other option?

      Sanchez
      TAA - Shaw - Coufal - Duffy
      Salah - Bruno - Benrahma - Doucoure
      CR7 - Antonio

      Foster - Livra - Gilmour - Perica

        Play Shaw over Marçal in case the former is fit. Marçal a good chance to miss with Ait Nouri fit.

        I like C or D. Not worried about Marçal?

          missed a thing?

      With Ait Nouri fit, do you take a hit to move Marçal on for any City or Chelsea defender here or do you risking taking Sissoko’s bench points? I’m also worried about Pepe and whether he will start or not…

      Sanchez
      Rudiger Marçal Semedo White
      Salah Pepe Raphinha Traore
      Ronaldo Lukaku

      Steele Sissoko Livramento Scarlet

        Pepe won’t start most probably
        I reckon marcal will start,Lage won’t change a winning team I feel.
        No need to take a hit,save.

          You think it’s worth taking a hit to do Pepe to Saka?

        Lukaku or Ronaldo just for this week?

          Lukaku

        2. AC/DC AFC

          I'd say Ronaldo but who can predict the future with accuracy?

          Lukaku could come good again.

          Think Jota will be an issue going forward, can't see him.displacing Firmino given he struggled for goals when the former was out. Keep TAA but I reckon Westham won't give you enough cleanies to justify keeping

            .....Coufal

            I have Ayling so I need to replace him first.
            Jota can go but will be for a hit but I think he will play against City as Klopp is going all out attack this year.
            Jota long term is a good pick, he was just so unlucky not to return big

            1. ZeBestee
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Yes, I agree he played very well bar the horror misses. Watched him.closely in all games he played whrn Firm was out and he was more an all rounder than a pure no. 9. Did his defensive duties superbly as well. Issue is rotation will kill the enjoyment of owning him long term

                That's the thing, I don't enjoy having players that can be rotated but for the moment he can stay as I have Ayling as a priority to go and no Chelsea defence.

                Jota can be the next Mahrez..huge potential but massively disappointing

                1. ZeBestee
                  • 7 Years
                  2 months, 2 days ago

                  Yup, with addition of Grealish, Torrres getting games, Jesus playing very well as a RW and Foden coming back as well, Mahrez is another who is not worth having due to massive rotation that will continue to happen.

          You got Taa at the start of the season I assume so you haven’t really lost anything

            True that..this year I give zone f@cks for team value but losing 0.3 in on e single night isn't nice
