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.

      1. PartyTime
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Just English football refs being English football refs tbh.

          The only major demerit of English football

        Johnstone saved the penalty he conceded

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Useless for me the spell I had him last year

      5. Mr Johnson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Jimenez or Toney for the next 6?

        1. Weak Become Heros
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Jimi

        2. Gazza2000
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          I like Toney

        3. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Depends on what you can do with the the extra million or so

          1. Mr Johnson
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 20 days ago

            Could upgrade traore to raphinha! Will raphinha be available for GW 8?

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 20 days ago

              That would definitely be worth doing even if he doesn't start GW8

              1. Mr Johnson
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 20 days ago

                Would you do this week for -4?

                1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 20 days ago

                  I think I would

      6. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Just worked out I can do ronaldo gray and James to Antonio son and cancelo for -4. Quite like the look of those moves but ronaldo out for a hit could hurt

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Sounds bad, but he is an insufferable pr*ck if that makes it easier

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 20 days ago

            Haha!

        2. Plonatron
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Not worth it IMO, must be something else you can do with your 2FT?

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 20 days ago

            Might just do James to Christensen and save the other

        3. Gazza2000
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Like it, considering Son myself as well. Not sure why though 🙂

      7. Revival
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        No hard choice between Rudiger and Alonso for me cause am 0.1m short of doing Ayling > Alonso

        1. Lindelol
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Will Alonso start though? thats the only question right now. Don't know what Chelsea fans are saying.

          1. Revival
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 20 days ago

            Rudiger is the safer pick anyways

          2. Gazza2000
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 20 days ago

            Chelsea fans are hoping for Chilwell, not sure if Tuchel agrees though

      8. Drogba Legend
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 20 days 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. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          More cowbell

        2. Farnborough's Finest
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Looks great. I’d just worry about the benching headache most weeks.

      9. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Alonso or Rudiger?

        Have Christensen

        1. Weak Become Heros
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Rudi, safer and you already have Christensen on a potential rotation risk. Although I think he’ll be ok this week as Silva played midweek and James out.

        2. Revival
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          I hit auto-pick and it's put in Thiago Silva 😀

        3. Drogba Legend
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Rudiger to be safe. Alonso and Christensen the least nailed out of the 5-6 Chelsea defenders so reckon I'd punt with one and be safer with the second one

        4. Mufc202020
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Rud

        5. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Classic safe pick vs risky pick with more upside! Depending on your bench but I’d have some fun and get alonso

        6. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

        Trent replacement?

        Rudiger
        Cancelo

        1. Weak Become Heros
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Long term Cancelo imo, more upside

      12. Mufc202020
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Repost- replies appreciated

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

          WC draft, which two would you pick here?

          Ramsdale (Foster)
          Rudiger *** Cancelo (Dias, Livra )
          Salah Raphinha *** ESR (Brownhill)
          Lukaku Antonio Toney

          A) Christensen and Son
          Or
          B) Alonso and Grealish

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 20 days ago

            A

            3 months, 20 days ago

            Really like this side. I’d go for A as think son will be a brilliant pick and totally under the radar

            1. Gazza2000
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 20 days ago

              Cheers, not totally convinced on Son though but Villa at home is not too bad and after the int break it’s Newcastle, really like the look of that. Grealish isn’t on hot form either FPL wise.

          Marcal+CR7 to Rudi+Luk for a hit?

          No lukaku in my team..
          Not so confident of ronaldo or Antonio hauls..

          Is Raph a good captain shout?

            You are saying that you have Ronnie and ANtonio but want to cap Raphinha? Barmy.

          What do you prefer?

          A) TAA to Cancelo

          B) Jota to Sarr

            • 11 Years

              Williams or Livramento

              I am a United fan, kind of happy not having TAA against us. But Watford ...
