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.

    Evening All,

    Any thoughts on my WC:

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

    Any suggested changes?

    Alonso possibly not starting so tempted to change to Christiansen..

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

      Looks okay

      Could try parting your hair on the other side

    2. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Alonso to Christensen then Saka or Sarr to Raphinha?

    3. fricky_
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Very very solid. Maybe Coady to Semedo if anything?

      • Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Not feeling the Vardy appeal for that price, rather Ronaldo, midfield is risky at it's expense also, but overall it's ok

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

          I'm looking at Vardy as well. If you dropped Vardy to the likes of Jimenez, who would you actually upgrade to in the midfield?

          I feel there is a lack of midpriced appealing mids at the moment 8.0+

          1. Salah’s Sonnet
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            It's a fair point, but if going for Vardy, i'd much rather irk out that little extra for Ronaldo

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

              I was having a look at this and going Ronaldo, Lukaku, Antonio and the likes of Cancelo/Rudiger you're pretty much stuck with two 4.5mids, Livramento and a 4.5 defender so stuck playing 4-3-3.

              His fixtures aren't fully favourable and not nailed on pens (though he should be after that Bruno effort).

              Also if you're not going to captain him as you have Lukaku. Might be worth ditching and picking him up later when the fixtures get more favourable.

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

        Ronaldo out for a hit madness imo.

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

      Sanchez
      TAA, Semedo, Shaw
      Salah, Benrahma, Barnes, Greenwood
      Toney, CR7, Antonio

      Steele, Tsimikas, Amartey, Glimour

      2FT 1.1m ITB

      With rumours of Shaw being fit.

      TAA, Barnes > Rudiger, Raphina

      How does that sound? Anyone got any other suggestions? I will be WC next week

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

        Good enough

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

        Yep its good

    5. Jdpz
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Sanchez
      TAA Reguilon Tierney
      Salah Bruno Jota Raphinha Benrahma
      Antonio King

      Begović Cash Ayling Perica*

      1FT, 2.4m ITB

      a) Jota to Grealish / Son
      b) Scarlett to Wood (NOR)
      c) Ayling to Azpi / Rudiger

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

        B is the move

      2. lilmessipran
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        A with Son

    6. BS03
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      hi all is this worth a -8?

      taa* + greenwood + bamford* -> christensen + raph + lukaku (c)

      cheers!

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Yes given 2 of them wont be playing and you’ll be captaining Lukaku.

      2. fricky_
          2 months, 2 days ago

          honestly, yes

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

          I wouldn't but you should

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

          Looks great tbf.

        • Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          how will you get taa back though? what are your other captain options?

        • lilmessipran
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Yup

      3. George Agdgdgwngo
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I’m Antonio-less at the minute.

        Very tempted to do Taa & Obafemi > Williams and Antonio.

        Thought Is 4-4-2 means having a 4.5m striker on the bench.

        Where as 3-4-3 means having 2x 4.0 defenders on the bench, saving 0.5m

        Is this a good idea?

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

          4-4-f*cking-2

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

          Yes, Antonio is a must and at least Williams is playing but 2x4.0 could be a problem. Could just get TAA back in after 3 weeks. Would be easier to judge by seeing the whole team. TAA to Chelsea defender could also be in the cards

          1. George Agdgdgwngo
            • 12 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Already have Rudi, james and Lukaku.

            Livra is one of the 4.0m defenders.

            Who is more essential, Taa or Antonio

      4. Norco
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Any issues with the WC team?

        Ramsdale
        Dias Azpi Rudiger Cash
        Salah Raphinha Saka
        Lukaku Antonio Vardy

        Subs: Foster, Mbeumo Brownhill Livramento

        Route for TAA probably downgrade Vardy and upgrade Cash later on.

        1. lilmessipran
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Looks good

        2. Weak Become Heros
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Decent

        3. Salah’s Sonnet
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          don't like Vardy, but overall it's a good shot

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

            Downgrading Vardy to the likes of Jimenez, not sure where to spend the cash as there isn't really any midfielders 8.0+ worth it at the moment?

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

          I'd want Cancelo if playing a back 4

        5. PepTalk
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Isn't Raph a risk? Brazil play 15th October and the UK Govt is now saying 10 days isolation required on arrival back in the UK... meaning he misses GW8 and 9.

          I've seen him in just about every WC team...what am I missing?

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

            If he was to miss a game or two, no biggie. I think he's value alone picks himself

        6. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Maybe avoid Raph on a WC? Not sure
          Cancelo over Dias IMO

      5. lilmessipran
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        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

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

          Nae bad

        2. Salah’s Sonnet
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          seeing these WC's are good but how do you cope wit hthe fear of not owning Ronaldo?! i'd be scared to death! Team looks decent though bud.

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

            Can't own em all unfortunately. I guess the idea is one hopes the extra cash can strengthen other parts of the team and return more plus be more flexible

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

            Ronaldo in a decent Man U team would be scary yes!

        3. Iceball
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Too weak bench on WC. Son not worth it atm

          1. lilmessipran
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            I can understand that.. but I think apart from this week Livramento can deputize really well for the odd Christensen/Cancelo benching.. hence want to spend as much as possible on the starting 11

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

          Cheers All

        Asking again.....
        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.

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

          I would not get rid of Gray. DCL back GW8 so it will be his time to shine added to his current good form.

          If Raphina does not play GW8 then what is your plan?

          1. GreatCarragherReef
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            team must be mazing if this is your two ft's!

      7. Sergio vamos
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        a) Rudiger + Doucoure
        b) Christensen + mount

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

        Who scores more?
        A) Rudiger, Raph, Jimi
        B) Christensen, ESR, Luk

        1. fricky_

            A

        2. Jet5605
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Have 2 FT and 0.2 ITB. Don't think I need to wildcard and so which option looks best?

          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

          Want to make three transfers for just this week, 2FT 0.4itb and will WC next week

          Sanchez
          TAA Shaw White
          Salah Jota Benrahma Gray
          Ronaldo Jimenez Antonio
          Steele White Omoba Digne

        4. HD7
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          1FT:
          A) Trent to Alonso
          B) Trent to Cancelo
          C) Save and play Sissoko

          Ramsdale
          Trent* Rudiger Dias Marcal
          Salah Raph Gray Sarr
          Ronaldo Lukaku

          Steele Sissoko Livra Scarlett

          1. Stupendous
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            I see goals in the Watford match

            Sissoko is my first sub and I'm expecting to miss his points haha

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

            have a quite similar team. Considered to bring in Antonio or risk going without? Something like Trent > White and Scarlett > Antonio

            1. HD7
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              I have contemplated it for a minute but not for now. The priority right now is to have players available if Marcal also doesnt play with TAA.

        5. Hits from the Bong

            • 6 Years

            I’d keep TAA...only missing this GW...

            Teams solid....I’m not an advocate of having both CR7 & Rom...think w/o CR7 u can really add max strength and flexibility elsewhere.

            It’s only my opinion....so for what it’s worth l WOULD ROLL OVER YA FREE TRANSFER...ie do nought and therefore going in2 GW8 u have x2 free transfers and can see about any inevitable injuries.

        6. Stupendous
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          I have the big 3

          2 months, 2 days ago

          Pls help me decide best course of action. I’m in a pickle....

          I ideally want to go into GW8 ( in 2 weeks and after the international break (IB) )....with 2 free transfers to allow me maximum flexibility ....l cud make x4 changes for only a -8 point hit.....and u just know that following the IB there r bound to be injuries and COVID related issues.

          A short term hit for a long term gain.

          This is my team....( only 1 free transfer ) have 4.0 mln itb. Obviously my defence is wrecked....and prices soaring atm ( I’ve played my WC)

          Sanchez / Steer
          TAA / James / Livra / Marçin / Williams
          Salah / Jota / Gray / Gallagher / Sarr
          Ronaldo (c) / Antonio (v) / Scarlett

          Soz for lengthy explanation..All feedback ever so greatly appreciated and may all ya arrows be GREEN this week.

                    Raphinha only does 1 return at a time the pest.

                    Raph hattrick spread across 3 weeks by virtue of his 8 point ceiling

                    On WC....Chilwell instead of Alonso?

                        You don't think Chilwell will start against Soton and play more regularly?

                          Yeah maybe, but there is absolutely nothing to suggest he is now the first choice left back

                        2 months, 2 days ago

                        Might actually go for Chillwell in the end

                      Any thoughts on my WC team:

                      Sanchez Steele
                      TAA Alonso Cancelo White Williams
                      Salah Raph Benrahma Kovacic ESR
                      Lukaku Antonio Jesus

                      Who takes corners and free kicks for Arsenal? Is it odegard? Or a mixture?

                        Pepe if he's on the pitch. Ode then Saka/Tierney have taken too.

                          Thanks cant decide on esr or sake for midfield spot.. is saka worth the 1m more?

                              Yeah, he's looked very lively last couple of games

                                  Then again, Brighton away is not an ideal fixture

                                  Cheers he did look good against spurs i saw that game. Althou i loved some of the positions esr was in the box. Its sooo tough to call

                                His stats are better than ESR's but it is a mill now... Look forward a few weeks and see if that million will come in handy. City defenders will take off next GW and they're pricy. Each team is different.

                            Would swap Biss and Tsim for Luiz and someone like Manq who plays regularly but otherwise good

                            Are you nit planning on having any City defenders?

                          Would you take a hit to remove any of Jota Greenwood Torres? Or just save the points and rely on livra off the bench and them to do damage off the bench if they don't start

                            I would take a hit if you don't have Raphinha
