Interview

Meet the Manager – three-time top 10k finisher reveals his Gameweek 8 Wildcard

Joe meets another Fantasy Premier League (FPL) manager with a stellar career record across the game.

This time around he meets Prasun Singhal, known as Pras among the Fantasy Football Scout community.

As well as finishing in the top 10,000 three times, including a top 5k finish, he has not ended a campaign lower than 100k in the last decade.

But after a strong start to the current season his team is losing rank fast and he has decided to press the Wildcard button.

Across this episode, Pras explains his strategies for success and tips for a strong finish. He also takes an honest look at his own FPL career to see how he could finish even higher up the rankings.

Pras explains how Fantasy Football content has been important to his strong finishes, with the Scoutcast and articles from FFScout a real help.

The FFScout Members’ Area Comparison Tool has been of particular use.

He also name-checks the array of Twitter posters and other podcasters that he has followed over the years to help him gain an advantage.

With his Wildcard in play, Pras takes us through the reasons for the players he has chosen as well as those vying for a place in his final XI.

Price points have been an important part of his strategy over the years and he explains how this is driving many of his decisions.

A strong spread of cash across all positions looks to be key to his thinking as is the value offered by assets from Brentford and Southampton in particular.

He also takes part in some future-gazing, when the template may alter even more radically from its current form. Could West Ham’s ‘season keeper’ striker Michail Antonio (£8.0m) even make way within the month?

The Meet the Manager series is where Joe chats to FPL managers with a strong record of success, an interesting view of the game and are offering the community a unique insight into Fantasy management.

His chat with Pras can be viewed below.

    Best site for potential risers and fallers? I use fplstatistics but they didn’t have Vardy and D.Luiz as a risk of going up.

    14 days, 8 hours ago

    Which option sounds best?

    1) Ronaldo, Townsend/ESR/Mount, Duffy - bench Sarr
    2) Ronaldo, Townsend, Foden -4 - bench Duffy, Sarr sold
    3) Kaku, Foden, Duffy -4 - bench Sarr

    1. Mr Ozil
      • 6 Years
      14 days, 8 hours ago

      1 for next GW

      Then Ronaldo > Kaku for FT in gameweek 8?

      1. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        14 days, 7 hours ago

        Yeah, that was initial plan

  5. Mr Ozil

    1. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      14 days, 8 hours ago

      B looks good

    2. Tcheco
      • 4 Years
      14 days, 8 hours ago

      B. White is doing well

  7. Goonerly
    • 3 Years
    14 days, 8 hours ago

    Don't know if it's been mentioned, but Fabinho and Alisson are both set to miss the Watford match:
    https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/liverpool-alisson-fabinho-watford-brazil-covid-b1933147.html

    I'd been thinking about transferring Sarr out, but might keep him AND start him against 'Pool, especially if TAA is still out.
    No TAA, Alisson and Fabinho would drastically decrease their chances of a clean sheet, even if it's "only Watford".

    But does it also affect the way Liverpool will play, hence making Salah a less obvious choice for captain this GW, do you think?

    1. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      14 days, 8 hours ago

      Don’t overthink it. Captain Salah

      1. Goonerly
        • 3 Years
        14 days, 8 hours ago

        Oh I definitely will, but hasn't there been some stats from last season, that Salah (or maybe just Liverpool in general) performs worse when Fabinho's not playing?

        1. fusen
          • 9 Years
          14 days, 8 hours ago

          It's either Salah or gamble on choosing the right City player.

          Even if Liverpool aren't as good as normal, it's still Salah as otherwise you're literally trying to overthink it

          1. Goonerly
            • 3 Years
            14 days, 8 hours ago

            Not really arguing against Salah as captain. He'll get the armband from me this week, for sure.
            But thought it interesting that Liverpool will be without 2 key players (maybe 3), especially for those considering shipping Sarr out, like myself.

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 7 hours ago

      Fabinho didn't start either week 1 or 2 and Liverpool still kept clean sheets against bottom feeders no?

      There's very little chance Watford will make any effort to compete in midfield and so the absence of Fabinho is much less relevant imo.

  8. Make United Great Again
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    14 days, 8 hours ago

    Foden over Grealish for City midfield coverage?

    1. Mr Ozil
      • 6 Years
      14 days, 8 hours ago

      I think am Getting Foden yes

      1. Make United Great Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        14 days, 8 hours ago

        Yep same here. 86 minutes vs Chelsea, then top performance vs Liverpool.

        Looks like a great time to own vs Burnley at home and moving forward

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      14 days, 8 hours ago

      Dont like both but yeah, Foden over Grealish

      1. Make United Great Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        14 days, 8 hours ago

        How come?

    3. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      14 days, 7 hours ago

      Woohoo Fodenfreude!

  9. wotwot
    • 6 Years
    14 days, 8 hours ago

    Sup guys!
    Choose 2 out of:
    A. Doucoure
    B. Townsend
    C. ESR
    D. Mbeumo
    E. Gallagher

    1. jason_ni
      • 5 Years
      14 days, 8 hours ago

      Doucoure and ESR i reckon.

      Doucoure is standout from the options, looks unreal at the moment.

      2nd one is bit more of a guess.

    2. McGazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      14 days, 8 hours ago

      D C then A - all decent 12th/13th men

    3. RedRo
        14 days, 7 hours ago

        It’d comfortably be D and E for me.

      • pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        14 days, 7 hours ago

        D and B

        Mbeumo would be at the head of the list for me - oop and the greatest goal threat. Doucoure looks to be outperforming his stats - could be a good thing of course - and Arsenal don't look like scoring goals. Probs Townsend over Gallagher just.

      • wotwot
        • 6 Years
        14 days, 5 hours ago

        Cheers mates

        1. McGazza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          So to summarise our collective inputs, we have a strong recommendation for A, B, C, D and E. Hope that helps

    4. McGazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Trent - Dias - Cancelo - Rudiger - Azpi

      Sexy or inflexible ?

      1. Tcheco
        • 4 Years
        14 days, 8 hours ago

        The latter

      2. Goonerly
        • 3 Years
        14 days, 8 hours ago

        It's sexible

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        14 days, 7 hours ago

        Inflexible.

        There's also good value in Duffy and Livra that I think it's a mistake to ignore.

        1. McGazza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          14 days, 7 hours ago

          I think you could be right but I am going to find out - the sexy way or the hard way !

      4. RedRo
          14 days, 7 hours ago

          It’s great, when you look at it like that but kind of falls down a bit when you look at the rest of the side around it. Can’t say I haven’t played with the idea though. I feel there’s 6 defenders I really want for 5 slots and maybe 4 mids I want for 5 slots.

          1. McGazza
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            14 days, 7 hours ago

            I know - but having swerved it previously my curiosity got the better of me. I will report back in a month

          2. Pegboy
            • 11 Years
            14 days, 6 hours ago

            I think the rest of the team looks absolutely fine, it's just it's very inflexible if other premium mids/atts emerge

        • NABIL - I still got Tsimi
          • 9 Years

          Too good to be true

            Ramsdale

            Trent Dias Cancelo Rudiger Azpi

            Salah Raphinha

            Jimi. Lukaku. Antonio

            (foster ESR. Brownhill. Luiz)

            1.0m ITB for flexibility

            1. Amartey Partey
              • 2 Years
              14 days, 18 mins ago

              Good team. I reckon the likes of Rudiger, Dias, Azpi will score similar points to midfielders like Benrahma and Gray so both 5 at the back or 4 in the midfield work.

              1. McGazza
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                14 days, 11 mins ago

                Thanks AP - yeah that was my rationale - I think they have equal chance to haul but could be more consistent. We’ll see!!

      5. jason_ni
        • 5 Years
        14 days, 8 hours ago

        Obviously going to wait till closer to the deadline, but considering:

        Alonso -> Walker

        Just don't like the threat of chillwell looming every week now.
        Gives me:
        Ramsdale
        Cancelo - Walker - Rudigar - Tomiyasu
        Salah - Raphina - Saka
        Ronaldo - Lukaku - Antonio

        (Duffy - Luiz - Brownhill)

        Worth it, or save ft?

          team looks good, would wait on alonso til after norwich

        1. Echoes
          • 1 Year
          14 days, 7 hours ago

          Going out on my WC team regardless. It was a great first 7 weeks(bar the red abd subsequent missed game). But I feel it's time to go.

          1. Weak Become Heros
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            14 days, 7 hours ago

            You’re a madman. Keep him until his hamstring pulls!

        2. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
          • 9 Years
          14 days, 7 hours ago

          Loving it

      6. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        14 days, 7 hours ago

        Thinking of going Lukaku-Armstrong-Toney upfront. Gives me decent 5 mids, so the flexibility to go 343 or 352, as needed. And also leaves me some cash itb to bring in TAA a couple GWs from now. How does it sound?

        1. RedRo
            14 days, 7 hours ago

            It would mean going without Antonio which I don’t like. Could work but equally he’s the sort of player that could harm any team and at that price…

            1. Echoes
              • 1 Year
              14 days, 7 hours ago

              Personally think Antonio's (and West Ham's) dream run is over. Mostly due to their engagement in Europe. Hence shipping him out on WC.
              And even if I'm wrong, think Toney + Armstrong can cover him quite well.

              1. RedRo
                  14 days, 7 hours ago

                  I think if you’re set on getting rid then there’s nothing wrong with Toney and Armstrong as options. Armstrong’s fixtures about to get really good - and Toney’s too in a couple of weeks time along with his talismanic status. They’d be my top 2 choices at that price point.

            2. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              14 days, 7 hours ago

              I don't like losing Antonio. He's probably one of the best value players in the game. He could be 9.0m and still be worth considering. Unless West Ham fall off a cliff or he gets injured, he will stay in my team. He gets at least the next 3 games. If he doesn't deliver in that time, he will go.

              1. Weak Become Heros
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                14 days, 7 hours ago

                This.

              2. Echoes
                • 1 Year
                14 days, 7 hours ago

                Had him from GW1 till now, and plan was always to loose him when their fixtures thicken due to European commitments. Even if he proves me wrong, think I can cover the points from investing elsewhere.

                1. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  14 days, 7 hours ago

                  I don't think you can at that price. Or at least, it's a big gamble to do so. I just think you can gamble smarter than against one of the highest owned players in the game with top 3 underlying stats.

                  The stats are the scariest thing to stare down. He's 3rd in xGI behind Salah and Mane and he missed a game because of suspension.

              3. CroatianHammer
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                14 days, 7 hours ago

                He's not joining up with the Jamaica team either, so gets an extended break to work on whatever. Seems like shipping him out is asking for trouble in the long run. As well say Lukaku has to go.

            3. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
              • 9 Years
              14 days, 7 hours ago

              Keep Antonio unless injured or serious loss of form

              1. Echoes
                • 1 Year
                14 days, 7 hours ago

                Personally think Moyes' interest in Europe is going to cause their league form to suffer. And with fixtures now starting to pile up no less. And West Ham don't have squad depth like the other teams in Europe either.

                1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
                  • 9 Years
                  14 days, 7 hours ago

                  Valid points but Antonio is Antonio. He's a beast when fit. Worth holding onto unless you're so low in confidence with WHU

                  1. pingissimus
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    14 days, 7 hours ago

                    A relatively erratic beast when fit 🙂

                    There was really nothing between him Wilson DCL and Watkins last season when it came to putting away chances. They were all pretty much exactly 50% on big chances. The clinical thing comes and goes.

                    1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
                      • 9 Years
                      14 days, 7 hours ago

                      Remember that 4 goals vs Norwich? I'm yet to see that from DCL.

                      Yeah he is dispensable but not a big issue keeping him unless injured. Hard to find better value imo

                      1. pingissimus
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 2 Years
                        14 days, 7 hours ago

                        I do - I also remember the Watkins hattie against Liverpool and the DCL hattie against WBA.

                        Antonio is still a good choice but I think his beast record is up in the air. I watched him miss 4 sitters in one match against Palace last season for example.

                        He started the season in blazing form and he could yet of course pick it up again. Interestingly he was as effective against top 6 type opposition last season as bottom 6. When he's on he's on.

            4. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              14 days, 7 hours ago

              Losing Antonio a risk but not insane

              He's had one big chance in his last three matches compared to six in his first three matches - reverting to norm perhaps. You can't argue fixtures here as Leeds Southampton and Brentford is hardly a tough run.

              It's a small sample size but so was the sample size that made everyone leap on him. His stats last season were good but far from sensational.

            Current team. 1 FT and 1,4m in bank.

            Sanchez
            TAA Rudiger Semedo (White Livra)
            Salah Benrahma Sarr Raphinha Greenwood
            Ronaldo Antonio (Scarlett)

            Which of these moves would be your priority this gw? (will do A in gw 9 if I do B or C now.)

            A. Ronaldo to Lukaku
            B. Greenwood/Sarr to Mount
            C. Semedo to Dias/Cancelo

            Thanks

                  It all depends if you wonna stay with 3 big hitters really. Bruno + Ronny doesn't sit right with me, I'd much prefer Lukaku over Bruno and that way you're covering 3 big hitters from 3 big teams. Your team doesn't definitely need a WC but it's not quite the team I want right now so on that note??!!...Maybe. 😀

                If TAA is out does these moves look good, TAA and benrahma > Tierney and Son -4

                      Been without TAA since GW4.

                      We can survive until GW12 at least, hopefully 🙂

                        If TAA is fit for watford I'm 100% keeping though

                        1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi

                          14 days, 7 hours ago

                          Brentford scored 3 last time they travelled. TAA played 😉

                            watford are woeful though and brentford very good

                              Fair point

                              Liverpool D is similarly woeful

                                a bit harsh calling liverpool d woeful

                  Not this week.

                  • 9 Years
                  14 days, 7 hours ago

                  Nope

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                14 days, 7 hours ago

                Is Cancelo worth the extra £0.7m over Laporte. Attacking stats show no real difference. Want to be convinced…

                1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
                  • 9 Years
                  14 days, 7 hours ago

                  I would think so

                  1. Lanley Staurel
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    14 days, 7 hours ago

                    OK - is that gut, eye test, stats?

                    1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
                      • 9 Years
                      14 days, 7 hours ago

                      Gut, FPL pedigree, more room for attacking return..

                      I could be wrong though. Laporte is DGW legend. But he could be benched against easier opponents. Cancelo? Maybe Pep needs him more. Gut feeling

                      1. Lanley Staurel
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 11 Years
                        14 days, 6 hours ago

                        Difficult isnt it. I looked at stats and Cancelo over 4 games had 5 goal attempts, none in the box but created 5 chances. His xG was 0.14. Laporte over 3 games had 3 goal attempts BUT 3 were in the box and an xG of 0.35. Only created 1 chance tho. Laporte is less nailed though which is a worry.

                2. T.Henry14
                  • 8 Years
                  14 days, 7 hours ago

                  Yes of course. more attacking, more nailed.

                  1. T.Henry14
                    • 8 Years
                    14 days, 7 hours ago

                    One of City’s best players, this season.

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  14 days, 7 hours ago

                  Minutes are the concern. When both are on the pitch I don't Cancelo is worth 0.7m more than Laporte.

                  1. Lanley Staurel
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    14 days, 6 hours ago

                    Yes would need a good sub for the odd game he is missing. Scratches head….

                  • 6 Years
                  14 days, 4 hours ago

                  I would get Cancelo. If you're watching the games, the guy's looking incredible.

                  1. Lanley Staurel
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    14 days, 4 hours ago

                    I know he does. I think I might just go gut and eye test and soak up the extra cash and get him. Ownership is getting higher now too.

                    1. chriskon
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 6 Years
                      14 days, 4 hours ago

                      Very true, the 0.1's here and there can make a difference. I reckon a good sub and great value for money is Livermento. There's others like White, Tierny. If your budget allows that is.

                Would you still move/bench Sarr this week if Alisson and Fabinho are missing?
                Replacement would have been Raphinha who also looks like a major doubt

                Morning

                I see that Azpi price could go up tonight. Thoughts on what would be better choice.

                A. Double Chelski defence
                B. Double City defence

                Thanks

                      Thanks, so forget Azpi then?

                      I have Rudiger already and wanted Cancelo, might get Dias need to see if I have the funds!

                  I'm looking at Dias Azpi myself
                  Own James so will wait on Chelsea defence
                  Depends on team structure but don't necessarily think the double up is needed - if anything I'd choose City

                2FT, 0.0 ITB, thoughts?

                Sanchez / Steele

                TAA / Christensen / Coady / White / Livramento

                Salah / Raphinha / Gallagher / Gray / Allan

                Ronaldo / Lukaku / Antonio

                  • 9 Years

                  Gallagher or Coady out

                      Lots to consider

                      I'd pick bha defender

                        • 6 Years
                        14 days, 7 hours ago

                        I’ve got Sanchez, double Brighton?

                  14 days, 5 hours ago

                  Are you sticking with Ron Rom up front for a while?

                  If yes then you can't afford City defender (assuming you keep Trent)

                  Ideally would upgrade Coady but you don't have the funds. Would look to roll one FT for gw9

                Hey guys, How does this team look?

                Ramsdale Foster
                Dias Cancelo Azpilicueta Rudiger Livramento
                Salah Raphinha Benrahma Saka Brownhill
                Lukaku Antonio Toney

                1.8 ITB
                1 FT

                Any moves that I need to make or really wait and see until after the international break?

                Thanks!

                This Foden vs Grealish thing I don't think is as clear as people make it out to be.

                Grealish's minutes look more assured. He's still adapting to the team and Pep seems willing to give him a chance, at least more than Sterling. Admittedly, his recent performances don't scream points but we know he is capable and one double digit game and the tune will likely change immediately on him since his minutes are good.

                We've also seen this all before with Foden. He is Pep's favorite when it comes to playing the top teams. They play him vs Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid but then will bench him vs Burnley, Palace, Newcastle.

                The fixtures are good for City. I want to gamble but I dunno, this is a tough call.

                    explosive risk v sensible minutes.

                    Grealish is such a difficult one, have had him from the start and while his minutes are great and stats too it just doesn't seem to be dropping for him. Especially when there seems much better ways to spend the money although i don't think foden is the answer to that either, i will keep Grealish for this kind looking fixture run for the next 3 and reasses from there. I actually think grealish is more likely to start in the prem games too

                    I think Foden is being managed beck into the fold.

                    It's almost like Pep has a Champions League set up in mind where quality players like Mahrez are top pick. It's not working out so well in the Champions League but pretty good with a stable set up in the league.

                    I get that City's next run of games look worthy of investing in but is this not more about the best option in that bracket? The other guys, Jota and Mount have their upsides too. Grealish's lack of returns is not in his favour, certainty of mins is certainly a minus on Foden. Does Firmino out possibly after the international break make Jota the better option. I've gone Mount and hoping i keep the faith on him being given the chance to improve Chelsea's creativity.

                    Or is it that you think those fixtures even with the downsides of City rotation are worthy of inclusion over the two other options i've mentioned.

                    Isn't Jota a better option than both Foden/Grealish anyway?
                    Less rotation risk (if benched he usually comes on and still looks dangerous)
                    Liverpool arguably better than Man City attacking wise (and vice versa in terms of defender)
                    Stats:
                    Jota 145 mins xGI last season / 127 mins this season
                    Foden 211 last / 171 this
                    Grealish 196 last / 180 this

                  Anyone know how bad the niggle is which forced Antonio to withdraw from the internationals?

                  Thoughts on my current WC draft?

                  Ramsdale Foster
                  Dias Cancelo Azpi Rudiger Livra
                  Salah Foden Saka Raph Luiz
                  Lukaku Toney Antonio

                  Strategy to get TAA back in gw10 for 2 premium defenders or 1 premium defender plus Foden.

                  Really want to find a way to get Vardy in my team.....only way I can do this is to replace Toney, Foden, and Dias for Vardy, Mbuemo and Duffy. Plus it makes getting TAA back in a bit more tricky

                    In some ways it might make getting TAA easier, but would mean moving on one of Lukaku or Vardy

                    If Lukaku blanks his next two - bre NOR i'd really look at getting rid, so just reassess in a couple of games
                    Can see why you'd want to get x2 city/chel but i'd probably just choose one team to double up on (if any)
                    Gotta give somewhere - Likes of White offer good value
                    You'll be perma 4 at the back and will be frustrated when you leave foden saka toney points on the bench and chelsea concede.

                    Looking at pras team in the article above. How can he afford it? I’m 0.7 off and doing much better than him. Thought my team would have been worth more…

                    I am on WC and my core team structure will be like:

                    Ramsdale Foster
                    TAA Cancelo Rudiger Livramento *
                    Salah Raphinha Mbeumo Douglas Luiz *
                    Lukaku Antonio *

                    I am pondering over the following options:
                    A) Duffy, Son, Toney (Brownhill instead of D. Luiz because I'm 0.1 short of money for that draft)
                    B) up to 5.0 def (may go for cheaper and money ITB), Son, Hwang
                    C) up to 5.1 def (may go for cheaper and money ITB), Foden, Jimenez
                    D) Dias, Foden, Toney and 0.2 ITB

                    Which option would you prefer?
