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.

    2FT 0.1 ITB WC played

    Sanchez

    TAA Tirney Dier Coady

    Salah Jota Greenwood

    CR7 Antonio Dennis

    Sub: Forster Torres Gray Livramento

    a) -8pts TAA Jota Greenwood Deniis -> White Raph ESR Lukaku
    b) -4pts TAA Jota Deniis -> Manquilo Longstaff Lukaku

    1. mojoindojo
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      A sets up the team nicely

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

      Not a fan of either tbh, but A out of those.

    3. King Kun Ta
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      With A you'll end up with the better players, but -8.....

    4. Predator
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      A is long term, do it

    Evening All,

    Any thoughts on my WC:

    Ramsdale Foster
    Alonso Rudiger Cancelo Coady 4.3
    Salah Saka Sarr Benrahma Luiz
    Lukaku Antonio Vardy

    Is Livermoto the sensible choice for last spot?

    Any suggested changes?

    1. ZeBestee
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Yes get Livra. Nice upcoming fixtures as well and could cover Alonso just like Coady could.

      I would also punt on Mbuemo over Sarr if you want

  4. Pukki Party
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Anyone benching Jota?

    1. Eric Banternaaa
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Dropping in price tonight and can see Firmino starting 50% games if not more.

      1. Fuddled FC
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Jota also plays with Firmino on the pitch and pool have a few mids out

        1. Eric Banternaaa
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Scored less points with all 4 on the pitch from previous stats

  5. Tsparkes10
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    2 short terms defenders for a combo of 10.7m. Any idea?

    Considering Semedo, Rudiger, Lowton, Chillwel

    1. donbagino
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Semedo + Rudiger

      • ZeBestee
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Chilly + Rud. Go big or go home.

        1. ZeBestee
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Sorry, for 10.7 then Semedo+Chillwell

    2. donbagino
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Greenwood ---> Raphinha for a hit?

        1. Rains of Castamere
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          No way

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

          Straight nah!

      • Surgical Attack
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        RMT working for anyone?

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Seems bust Trent is not flagged

      • Mr Ozil
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Is Mount likely to start?

        Thinking Jota > Mount for -4 as a long term transfer

        1. Eric Banternaaa
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Not very template, could pay off

        2. MosF94
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I'm thinking the same, hoping Tuchel's comments on the link up between Mount and Lukaku bode well for him

      • FCSB
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Ole was pretty cryptic… reckon Shaw starts v EVE?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Been pictured in training

      • gonzalocampos
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Best Chelsea combo. Don't want to go with Alonso, too risky moving forward.
        a) Azpi - Christensen?
        b) Rudiger - Christensen?

        1. Eric Banternaaa
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          B

      • Strchld
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Is this good to go?

        Sanchez
        Shaw - Livramento - White
        Salah - Jota - Greenwood - Benhrama - Raphinha
        Ronaldo - Antonio

        Obviously wouldnt want to play Livra against Chelsea and worried Jota or Greenwood benched. Not any bench player.

        WCing next week, but would you do TAA to Azpi for one week? Then could bench Livra and hope everyone will play.

        1. Fuddled FC
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          -4?

          1. Strchld
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Yes.

            1. Fuddled FC
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              No then

        2. Strchld
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          TAA > Azpi for -4? Its actually just -2 If everyone won't play.

      • Fuddled FC
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Jota > Raph (-4)?

        Y/n

        1. Rains of Castamere
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Keep for now. Jota could keep his place then has Watford. Raph plays for Brazil 36hrs before GW8.

        2. CMIUK (Catch Me If U Kane)
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          No. I am keeping jota. Same situation

      • Nemanja Vidic
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        2FT 0.1 ITB WC played

        Sanchez
        TAA Tirney Dier Coady
        Salah Jota Greenwood
        CR7 Antonio Dennis

        Sub: Forster Torres Gray Livramento

        a) -8pts TAA Jota Greenwood Deniis -> White Raph ESR Lukaku
        b) -4pts TAA Jota Deniis -> Manquilo Longstaff Lukaku

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Don’t like any of them. Would prefer to lose ronaldo if you want lukaku

      • O12
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Ok fellas.

        What about this team? On WC

        Ramsdale (foster)
        Cancelo, Alonso, Rudiger (livra, duffy)
        Salah, Raphinha, Benrahma, Saka (Luiz)
        Lukaku(c) , Auba, Antonio

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

        A) Bamford to Jimenez for a hit
        B) Play Gilmour

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

          A

      • mojoindojo
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Save FT this week or get rid of Jota/TAA?

        Sa
        Alonso White Semedo
        Grealish Jota Saka Raphinha
        Antonio Lukaku Ronaldo

        4.0 Livra Bissouma TAA

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

          You basically could keep, but if Chilly plays, starting Livra isn't funny. Your team is in order so you could downgrade TAA and be ready to upgrade Alonso to him next week.

      • FDMS All Starz
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Cancelo or Alonso or another chelsea def?

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Cancelo and rudiger looks best

      • Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Not sure what to do here so any help appreciated. Got 2ft and 0.1 in the bank

        Guaita
        Taa James rudiger semedo
        Salah gray sarr raphinha
        Lukaku (c) ronaldo

        Sissoko livramento Scarlett

        Think either James to Christensen or Laporte. Or doing something like ronaldo sissoko and James to Antonio foden/grealish cancelo? Any thoughts?

        1. Rains of Castamere
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Think you could do James to Christensen and bank the other.

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Cheers. Does give me another week to decide on city mids. Antonio is just such good value I’ll be getting him back next week

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

          Moving on James makes most sense, but to who is a million dollar question.

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Thanks. Wish I could just get cancelo as want him long term but not got enough cash.

      • DycheDycheBaby
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Choose one:
        a) Play Livramento
        b) Transfer out TAA for -4
        c) Transfer out James for -4

        1. Jonny HOW SON?

          A

            Thanks dude

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

        Grealish or Foden on WC?

        Really want one City mid.

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I’m thinking foden but would prefer to see another game from him

          1. Rains of Castamere
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            I prefer Foden as a player and he excites me in the final third.

            But Grealish looks likely to get more minutes.

            50/50 call...

      • FantasyHero
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Any news on semedo? He isn't injured is he?

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

          Haven’t heard anything to suggest injured

        2. Ligdon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          No why ?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            Was subbed off with injury against Southampton

      • Jonny HOW SON?
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        A) Jota ---> Raphinha
        B) Jota & Ronaldo ---> Raphinha & Lukaku (-4)

        Which is better? Will cap either Ron or Rom

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

          A

        2. DycheDycheBaby

          A

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

          I'd prefer having Lukaku this weekend, but switching him with Ronaldo could backfire (this GW only imo)

      • rnrd
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Is there any cons in captaining Antonio this week-end?
        I am on Lukaku (c) full FOMO style but can’t help thinking there is absolutely no reasons not to captain Antonio in the end

        1. DycheDycheBaby
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Not really. Antonio in form and playing at home. Brentford showed they can be vulnerable when they have a go. West Ham are good on the counter. I can see at least a goal or two for Antonio.

        2. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Antonio's form is better.

      • Fpl_Ludwig

        2 months, 4 days ago

        If i were to take out Taa and keep money itb so i can get him back whenever i want.
        Who should i replace him with?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Depends a lot on the rest of your defence as that will depend how risky you can go

      • Nemanja Vidic
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        2FT 0.1 ITB WC played

        Sanchez
        TAA Tirney Dier Coady
        Salah Jota Greenwood
        CR7 Antonio Dennis

        Sub: Forster Torres Gray Livramento

        a) -8pts TAA Jota Greenwood Deniis -> White Raph ESR Lukaku
        b) -4pts TAA Jota Deniis -> Manquilo Longstaff Lukaku
        c) something else?

      • mixology
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Opinions appreciated based on this defence:

        1FT

        R James, TAA, Shaw, Tsimikas, Amartey

        A) Use 1FT and hope Shaw plays
        B) -4 to bring in 2 defenders and hope Shaw plays
        C) -8
        D) WC

        I have WC but similar to others, I don't want to be taking out the likes of Benny and Sarr just yet with the weekends' fixtures

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

          4 won't play. Or 3.

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

          B

        3. Flaming Flamingo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          A if you are happy with the rest of your team for this week

      • Crooky
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Is there a consensus emerging about Ramsdale before he goes up? Is he a slightly risky one if foster is your back up, or basically nailed on?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          They may give Leno a game at any point as Arteta has said he will base his team selections on the week’s training but it’s Ramsdale’s place for a while at least

        2. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Looks like it’s his place to lose now I’d say

      • Steve McCroskey
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Best 4.8 defender (or less) to replace Ayling? Slim pickings, thinking Lowton?

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

          White, Tomiyasu or Livramento

      • SADIO SANÉ
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Looks like a crap tonne of WCs in play to me

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

        Ayling to Azpi/Alonso worth -4? Or play Livramento.

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I just moved for Rudi. But with an FT. Perhaps just play Livra

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

          Just play Livramento

        3. Thinkering like a Boss
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          play Livramento

        4. DycheDycheBaby
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Probably Livra as I think that's what I'm going to do.

          1. DycheDycheBaby
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            *play Livra

        5. Traction Engine Foot
