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.

    Townsend and Ronaldo > Raphinha and lukaku worth a hit ya reckon ?

    1. mojoindojo
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Won't get rid of Ron this week

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        He is 36 though, 3 games in a week is alot plus early kick off

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

          Doesn't exactly run around much though

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

      No don’t think so

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Its close right

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

          For free maybe but not worth a hit

          1. drughi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            3 months, 20 days ago

            I mean you would think Raphinha outscores townsend by 4 points

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

              Man U not exactly keeping clean sheets? I have gray and happy to keep

    3. PascalCygan
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Not for a hit

    4. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      I actully might, but only if you can easily bench Raph next week. And even then only if your team is "behind".

    5. Yozzer
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      No way. Can't lose Ronaldo for an hit.

    Bottomed, sorry to repost.

    One week punt before WC next week:

    A. Raph
    B. Sarr.

    Thank you.

    1. PascalCygan
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      A

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      A

    3. JoTAA
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      A easy

  3. Rainer

    Shaw you're saying there's a chance...

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

      Ollie fibs

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Bringing an ill/recently recovered to the hotel with no intent to use him would be weird but an Ole thing to do...

        Should get word pre-deadline if he's starting.

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Seen in full training

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        So was DCL.

  4. PascalCygan
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 20 days ago

    James now being definitely out (and not knowing when he’s back) has made me reconsider. I was set on A but what do you think?

    A) TAA + Jota > Rudiger + Smith Rowe (free)
    B) James + Jota > as above
    C) TAA + James > Rudiger + Cancelo/Other (Tierney?)

    Plan was to do Williams to Cancelo GW8 with A/B

    2FT 0.0ITB
    Sanchez
    TAA* James* Marcal
    Salah Jota Raphinha Gray Gallagher
    Lukaku Ronaldo

    Steele Williams Livramento Street

    Thanks!

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

      Easy B

      1. PascalCygan
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Thanks!

    2. mojoindojo
      • 8 Years

      B

      1. PascalCygan
        • 4 Years

        Thank you

    3. Gunneryank
        3 months, 20 days ago

        I like B too. I am benching Trent....for now.

        1. PascalCygan
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Nice one, thanks

    4. Brunsvigeren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Advice here? could be nice 🙂

      0.8 ITB, 1 FT, already did Shaw -> Rüdiger


      Duffy - Digne - Rüdiger
      Salah - Jota - Gray - Sarr - Greenwood
      Antonio - Lukaku

      Steer, TAA, Ayling, Richardson

      Thinking of maybe a -4, and get rid of Ayling and Greenwood for Raphina

      1. mojoindojo
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Raphinha and?

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

          Not sure on Ayling to ?

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

            Maybe semedo

          2. mojoindojo
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 20 days ago

            Tierney

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

              I dont like Tierney pick, always seems to get injuried

    5. SADIO SANÉ
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Mount and Werner starting would be perfect for Lukaku

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Chilwell's creativity down the left would be handy too with no James supplying.

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

        Not if Timo starts instead of Rom it isn't

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Haha

    6. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Short term before a wc...

      A) Rudiger
      B) Chilwell

      1. PascalCygan
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        A

      2. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        A

      3. TheBiffas
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Pereira

      4. TLF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        A safer, B a lot more fun.

      5. mojoindojo
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        A

      6. JoTAA
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Azpi

    7. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Alonso or Azpi?

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

        Azpi

      2. SADIO SANÉ
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Neither nailed, just guess

      3. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Prob safe so Azpi

      4. fricky_
          3 months, 20 days ago

          I've finally decided on Azpi, unless we get some extremely early news on something about Alonso

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

          Azpi safer

        • Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          Cheers gents, Azpi it is then!

        • Bubbles1985
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 20 days ago

          I've gone Alonso.

          But i enjoy a punt.

          And have Benrahma captain.

              • 4 Years
              3 months, 20 days ago

              Maybe too much this week as I am top of most of MLs.

              Probably stupid rather than ballsy!

      5. jonnybhoy

        Terrified going without lukaku this week

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

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

          Get him then, only a game

            1. mojoindojo
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 20 days ago

              Plus two assists for Alonso brace as well

            2. Bobby Digital
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 20 days ago

              Livra cleansheet 0-0 bore

          • Gunneryank
              3 months, 20 days ago

              Eh, Saints aren't pushovers. Will need to work hard.

              1. fricky_
                  3 months, 20 days ago

                  Chelsea will probably win 4-0 tbh

            • FCSB
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 20 days ago

              Will Veltman start again? Any Brighton fans?

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

                I reckon

                Yes, you can see them over there holding hands

                1. FCSB
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 20 days ago

                  Cheers boi

                3 months, 20 days ago

                Should, he's in the strongest back line whether it's at RWB or RCB. Others will drop out before him.

                1. FCSB
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 20 days ago

                  Thanks my man

            • GoonerSteve
              • 12 Years
              3 months, 20 days ago

              Thoughts on this wildcard team (already played)

              Ramsdale (Foster)
              Dias, Duffy, Rudiger, (Livramento, Manquillo)
              Salah, Sarr, Gallagher, Raphina (Douglas Luiz)
              Ronaldo, Antonio, Lukaku

              Currently still have Trent and a much weaker midfield and defence. This would leave 0.2 ITb. Will I regret selling Trent?

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

                I have ronaldo salah and lukaku but planning to downgrade ronaldo next gw. If on wc I’d have Toney over ronaldo and then you can get someone like son or Man City in midfield and upgrade one or two defenders

            • FOO FIGHTER
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 20 days ago

              By kick off tomorrow, nobody may even want CHE assets anymore.

              Tuchel to conjure up his most evil looking starting eleven yet!

              1. SADIO SANÉ
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 20 days ago

                I will genuinely be surprised if Chalobah and CHO aren’t starting

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

                CHO, Chalobah, Silva, Sarr, Chilwell

                Imagine...

                1. fricky_
                    3 months, 20 days ago

                    That would be painful

                  • FOO FIGHTER
                    • 2 Years
                    3 months, 20 days ago

                    And Werner instead of Lukaku of course.

                2. Gunneryank
                    3 months, 20 days ago

                    I'm fine with holding with just my boy Rude Dog.

                3. Steve The Spud

                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 20 days ago

                  Might be a ‘Dial up’ moment but shaw can be seen here in full training with the team today https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8cd6XFwB7YM

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

                    True, but so are Jones and Young Marcus

                    1. Steve The Spud
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 1 Year
                      3 months, 20 days ago

                      That was ole’s idea of a tactical masterclass session, a bit of piggy in the middle and some head tennis

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

                        I'd swap him for Nuno in a moment

                4. Tabasco
                  • 10 Years
                  3 months, 20 days ago

                  TAA to Rudiger?

                  Probably been asked here a lot

                  1. Bubbles1985
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 20 days ago

                    Seems popular.

                    I have gone Alonso instead.

                5. Bubbles1985
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 20 days ago

                  No Lukaku and Benrahma captain this week

                  I'm going hard!

                  1. FOO FIGHTER
                    • 2 Years
                    3 months, 20 days ago

                    Could pay off. GL!

                    • 9 Years
                    3 months, 20 days ago

                    Hard is one way to describe it.

                  3. Gunneryank
                      3 months, 20 days ago

                      Eh? Don't lie! Just cap Antonio 😀

                    • Zim0
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 3 Years

                      If I've learned anything from last year it's just statistically dumb punting on risky captains. More often than not it'll fail.

                    4-3-3 Wildcard team, thoughts?

                    Ramsdale 4.0

                    Rudiger Dias Cancelo Christensen Livra
                    Salah Son Raph Luiz Brownhill
                    Luka Antonio Jimi

                    Punting on Son for a couple of gws will replace with a city mid like Grealish/Foden and get Taa in the future

                      Would you sell Jota?

                      Man City > Watford > Man United > Brighton

                      - Even if he starts vs. City it is tricky.
                      - Watford early kick off post-IB. Firmino fresh.
                      - United keep it tighter in big games
                      - Brighton also decent

                          Would absolutely sell him

                          3 months, 20 days ago

                          He needs to go mate

                            Did finally get us a goal at least.

                          Moving to mbeumo or Gallagher after Watford if possible myself

                            I'm getting Raphinha in and i will sell one of:

                            Jota
                            Greenwood
                            and......*cough*....Fornals

                            I know.

                              Need rid, he's good but Bobby is back. 2 goals midweek. Keep him if you don't like points.

                            Which one is more likely to miss this week: Shaw or Coufal?

                                3 months, 20 days ago

                                Shaw

                              • Weak Become Heros
                                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                                Shaw but I think both will start.

                            2. El Matador

                              Captain?

                              A) Ronaldo
                              B) Antonio
                              C) Raphinha

                              Swaying towards Raphinha.

                                Prioritize one transfer this gw:

                                1. TAA-->Rudiger, or
                                2. Jota-->Raphinha

                                Very likely to wc gw8. No other CHE defenders. Have Ronaldo and Shaw. No Lukaku

                                        Did Tuchel say anything about Alonso or Chilwell?

                                        I think if Raph wasn’t a doubt for GW8 then Jota>Raph would be a straightforward move. Or am I overthinking it?

                                            Ta. Made the decision to bring in Jota a few gameweeks over Raph and been unlucky how that’s played out

                                            I'm considering the same move. Maybe he doesn't play all 3 Brazil fixtures (unlikely) but if he does it's unlikely he plays GW8. Just not enough time.

                                          Is it worth doing Torres to Sarr for a -4?

                                            nope

                                            I probably wouldn’t given the fixtures, but if you’re short on players like many are this week it could pay you back immediately
