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.

    Torn between GW7 and GW8 wildcard. Thing is that waiting just tonight could lose me up to 0.6 in value if all rises and falls occur as predicted. Tempted just to go for it tonight. Team would be practically identical

    1. Abra Dubravka
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Too late in the gameweek to Wildcard now. Save for the IB

    2. luk46
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      would save if you can play a decent starting 11

      1. xHaTr
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Can only get 11 out if both Coufal and Shaw start

    3. CABAYE4
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I pushed the button yesterday. Lost out on 0.2 or so by not doing it earlier in the week but not doing it with the state of my team would have been a doubling down on a 2nd mistake.

    4. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years

      Lots of wildcards in play. Dont think there will be that many changes as predicted tonight

    5. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      IMissed out on plenty already by not pressing the button a week ago, but, yes, probably worth it.

  2. Gazza2000
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Is it mad to consider Son on my wildcard for the next two gameweeks?

    A) Alonso ,Grealish
    Or
    B) Christensen, Son

    1. FCSB
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Could be ahead of the curve

      A

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

      I would go B for sure if A is your other choice. Grealish hasn't find the gears yet at City and a benching is near.

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

        Found*

  3. Abra Dubravka
    • 2 Years

      1. Abra Dubravka
        • 2 Years

    2. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I would go Rudiger

    2. Abra Dubravka

        Thanks abra

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I have both and going Williams.

      Norwich need points badly so throwing the dice and hoping for a cleanie.

  6. TeddiPonza
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Get rid of Shaw or TAA for Rudiger?

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Shaw

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

      Shaw

    3. luk46
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      depends if you have wc or not

      1. TeddiPonza
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Have WC

  7. Revival
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Leeds fixtures are so good, just a shame all the injuries and their patchy form of late stops any investment outside of Raphinha

    1. CABAYE4
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      The defence has been the biggest issue, so far away from the 2nd half of last season.

  8. Mufc202020
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    A) Start Dias & Sarr. Then Sarr to Grealish next GW
    B) Start Grealish and Semedo. Then Semedo to Dias next GW

  9. CABAYE4
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    On WC, 18m left for 2 mids to go with Salah, Raph and ESR.

    Who would you go for?

    1. luk46
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Saka instead of ESR and Gallagher, don't know if I like many more options right now

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

      Swap ESR for Saka and get Sarr to join them

      Gallagher also worth a look

      1. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        no love for Raph?

    3. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Son and grealish

      1. CABAYE4
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        This is what is sitting in my team.

        I don’t love Grealish as an option but no City is scary ahead of their run.

    4. CABAYE4
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Thanks all

  10. *Reformed-Character*
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Pukki to Jimenez for -4?

    1. Viper
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Nah

    2. Dexters Laboratory
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Nope

  11. PLerix
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Play 1
    A) Williams (bur)
    B) Livra (che)

    1. luk46
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      probably Livramento, higher chance for a 0:0

      1. PLerix
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Really?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I have both and gone with Williams.

  12. FDMS All Starz
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Which option better for the team?

    A)
    Son/TAA/Obefemi —> Lukaku/Cancelo/Luiz (-4)

    Or

    B)
    Ronaldo —> Lukaku (free)

    Sanchez
    White - D.Sanchez - Marcal
    Salah - Benrahma - Son - Gray - Greenwood
    Ronaldo - Antonio

    (Steele - TAA - Tsimikas - Obefemi)

    1. Dexters Laboratory
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B

  13. Futureform
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Arsenal / Brighton defence - best combo?

    A) Ramsdale and Duffy
    B) Sanchez and White

    1. AlpoShearer
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A

    2. fricky_
        2 months, 1 day ago

        A

      • SallySlayer
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        A. Goal threat from Duffy higher than White

        1. Futureform
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Ah that probably does swing it. Thanks.

    3. Viper
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Do we reckon TAA drops to 7.4m before Gw8?

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        How long is he out for?

      2. luk46
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Trent + Coufal/Shaw + Jota > Rüdiger + Azpi + Raphinha worth a hit for one week? Im gonna wc in gw8 and get Trent back in.

        1. fricky_
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Yes

          • Viper
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Shaw has trained hasn't he? Wouldn't be taking a hit if he's likely to play

            1. luk46
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              might get Coufal out, since I have Toney and think Chelsea will get a cs. I don't think Trent drops again btw, he's just out for this week!

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Lots of WC's in play.

      3. Drogba Legend
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I had too many injuries and doubts so activated my WC. 20k OR. Thoughts:

        Ramsdale
        Rudiger - Azpi - Cancelo
        Salah - Grealish - Raph - Saka
        Lukaku (C) - Toney - Antonio

        Foster - Dias - Livra - Brownhill

        G2G? Changes to WC?

        1. Bertonian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Cant argue with that

          1. Drogba Legend
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Cheers, will have to get TAA back eventually, and I'll plan for all the fixture swings for GW14. But this should be a good long-term team until GW14

        2. Futureform
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Really interested in this.

          On a WC too and have Ronaldo instead of Toney (who I do like).

          Are you ok about losing Ronaldo?

          1. Drogba Legend
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Yes and no. He's going to get points, but for me to get Ronny back in I'd have to drop my double CHE/MC defenders as well as Grealish and I'm not sure the players I'd be bringing in are going to offset the amount of points Ronny is going to get. CHE and MC defense look really good. They're going to get CS along the way over the next month or two and I'd expect their CS to clip along at the pace of Ronaldo getting attacking returns

            1. Futureform
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Oh wow. I missed you'd got double City defence as well as double Chelsea defence. This has really got me thinking if I could stretch to that.

              Toney looks good and is on pens. Brentford not the best fixtures but in form.

              Got me thinking....

        3. fricky_
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Maybe Semedo for Cancelo for this GW and then get Cancelo in for next GW?
            Does look very solid either way though

        4. Nightf0x
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Start matip or white, one will come in if alonso dont play

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Matip, at least he poses an attacking threat.

            I cannot see Arsenal keeping a clean sheet away to Brighton.

        5. SADIO SANÉ
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Balogun scores again, shoulda been ripping up FPL

        6. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Is Raphina missing GW8?

          How long is TAA out for?

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            TAA will be back GW8.

            Who knows what will happen re Brazil INT's.

            1. Super Saints

            Catching up on things now. What is the likelihood of Shaw starting do we think?

          7. Dannyb
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Gray and Reguilon to Raphinha and White? Got 2ft and don't wanna lose one, only other way to Raphinha is to drop Zaha for him.

            One week punt before wildcard... Jota and TAA >>>

            A) Tierney and Son
            B) Rudiger and Raphina

            I actually like A for a gamble but is it a pointless risk?

                Can't decide whether to cash in Greenwood for Rapha or not so 5od it I'm playing both and benching Toney in a 3-5-2. Rudiger and Rapha in.

                Sanchez
                Rudiger Dias Shaw
                Salah Sarr Raphina Benrahma Greenwood
                Ronaldo(c) Antonio

                Toney 4.0 4.0

                  Play Toney over Sarr imo

                Jota to Saka for -4?

                If Jota benched means brownhill coming in

                  Jota will get some minutes so bench option less of an issue than risk of 1 pointer.
