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.

      There are too many unknowns for me. Save the transfer.

    When signing up for the transfer planner and it asks for your FFS username, is it your username on your private profile (visible by only you) or your handle for chatting publicly?

    1. Camzy

      Just use your FFS one. But in truth you don't even need to do that. The planner is on the following page.

      1. Wild Guus Chase

        Got a link Camzy?

          Never mind, got a copy!

  3. Fulchester's New Centr…
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 16 hours ago

    Why introduce Pras as 3 X Top 10k manager when it 5 times?
    Even I have done it a couple of times and wouldn't recommend anyone to listen to me

    1. Rocket Raccoon
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 16 hours ago

      Bit of a mean thing to say, mate.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 16 hours ago

        No, what I mean is 5 times is not only very good, but a lot more impressive than 3 times, but the headline says 3 for some reason.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 16 hours ago

      I'd also add that picture of OGS is not confidence inspiring

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 16 hours ago

      And the point is?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 16 hours ago

        The point is the headline is mistaken and not doing him full credit

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 16 hours ago

          I thought that he's correct 3x 10K finisher although I would not rely on the record but more on the content and he's talking sense as far as my concern

        2. Ginkapo FPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 hours ago

          The article is mistaken not the headline

    4. jason_ni
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 16 hours ago

      Are you saying he's done it 5 times and not 3?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 16 hours ago

        Yes, is that not right?

        1. jason_ni
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 16 hours ago

          I've got no idea, there is either a typo in the article or the headline.

          Says 3 in one place, and 5 in the other. Does anyone know his team link?

          1. Ginkapo FPL

              Mistake is in the article then!

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 15 hours ago

                The moral of this story is actually reading the articles causes nothing but trouble.

  4. BOATIES FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Obviously dependent on injury news.. WC looks like it will come down to Son and Dias / Azpi for either a Chel or Man City defensive double up. Or TAA and Foden/Grealish

    1. FCSB
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 hours ago

      think im going TAA and Foden

    Mods
    If this comes across as a d*ck comment, please remove.
    It is not meant to be any comment on Pras at all, just on the error in the headline.

    1. jason_ni
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 15 hours ago

      Or the error is in the article!

    I somehow finished my one full day watching Sherlock series. Quite late , but understandable i think for someone who not based in UK.

    Just take some note and combined it with FPL tactics i believe the most:-

    1. The game is on. Buy time (to study and get advantage).
    2. Never gamble! Count.
    3. Not all of them performed all the time. Look for fixtures and form - not in sherlock obviously
    4. Use all our senses especially eyes. Eye test.
    5. Use the correct words and terms. Salah - essential if he hit forms because of high ppm, history, capability and ownership. (Ownership still have their merit for someone who is highly owned and for some period of times.)
    Essential, very good, average, bad.
    6. Put aside emotion about players, teams, managers etc. Choose the best.
    7. Set for 3, 6 and 9 matches
    8. Know and use the best weapon : LONG history of players capability (proven) and fixtures.
    9. Know your staff, your resources, appreciate them.
    10. Pick players that matches everyhing, tick every box.
    11. Pick players according to what combination will score most points. Usually its 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 but keep in mind mids and forwards are pricey. Sometimes its good to play 4-4-2 if want to get big quality attackers instead of mid-priced attackers.

      When all other options have been discounted, the obvious stands out no matter how improbable.

    Foster Marcal Livramento Sissoko

    1. BOATIES FC

      Yes easy save at the moment

    2. RedRo

        looks great, definitely save

        If in doubt, do nowt

    3. SINGH

      Will Townsend be restricted when DCL and Rich come back?

      1. Third Eye Vision
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 15 hours ago

        Well, he won’t be on penalties. There’s an argument to say that with DCL and Richi, more of his crosses and corners might get converted.

    4. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Sanchez, Foster
      Alonso, Rudiger, Digne, Shaw, Livramento
      Salah, Greenwood, Benrahma, Raphinha, Bissouma
      Toney, Antonio, Ronaldo

      1) Digne > Cancelo
      2) Shaw > Cancelo
      3) Ron > Lukaku
      4) Greenwood > City mid
      5) Consider activating WC

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years

        2. Utd can't keep a cleanie.

      2. RedRo
          2 months, 15 hours ago

          3 has the most upside I'd say. I'd go for that or I'd also consider 5. I think there's probably enough you want to do to justify it (plus it's always fun to have two weeks to play around)

      3. jason_ni

        Pras has 4k followers on twitter.
        Maybe I should get on this fpl manager social media roundabout, have 2 finishes inside top5, and another 1 inside top 10k 🙂

        Where does one start with getting a twitter following?!?

        1. Ginkapo FPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          What would you do with twitter followers?

          1. jason_ni
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 15 hours ago

            Get on meet the manager for my 2nd wildcard lol.

            I was saying it abit tongue in cheek, but its just interesting, fpl getting bigger and bigger, could be good to have a presence in a few years, not that I see myself as being good enough to deserve such a presence!

          Just noticed he has 14.5k tweets, maybe too much effort for me!

            It's all content and monetising baby in the tech dominated social media world.

            Can be a bit flimsy tho.

            Works for a few like most things. Just look at kids content on YouTube and some influencers are millionaires apparently. Aka Vlad and Nikki.

                Thanks.. I thought I was doing ok in life, and you've just introduced me to an 8 and 6 year old boys who have a net worth if 50odd million.

                Time for a mid life crisis, and work out where it all went wrong. No you tube in the early 90s.. ill blame that.

        Any Fanteam players here? What’s the deal with future double gameweeks? Is it the same as FPL?

        Can I pls get some advice for my team. 1.4 ITB

        Sanchez
        TAA Cancelo Rudiger Marcal (Livramento)
        Salah Saka Sarr Gray (Mendy)

          Just about everybody is getting rid of Ronaldo.

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 15 hours ago

          Marcal to Dias work? Or just lose Ron so you can do something next week with all your newly released funds.

        3. RedRo
            2 months, 15 hours ago

            Squad looks seriously thin.

            1. RedRo
                2 months, 15 hours ago

                Ah, missed that you have 3 premiums - I'd get shot of Ronaldo so you can spread the funds a bit more.

            On a wildcard would you keep Alonso (bought at 5.8m) or switch to Azpilicueta?

            Already own Rüdiger, Cancelo and TAA.

              • 4 Years

              Tens of thousands at least

                • 8 Years
                2 months, 14 hours ago

                Optimus has tens of thousands alone i bet. 😛

                If Hub had 70k+accounts then this place being the most popular dedicated fpl community i would think the number could be well on it's way to 1 million accounts?

                1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                  • 4 Years

                  Crikey, with this and learning of the existence of Vlad and Nicky I feel rather small

                  1. Ógie
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 14 hours ago

                    I have a net total of zero tweets and youtube followers but Vlad and Nicky have given me the belief that i could build a sizable following during the next 6 years or so.

                    I was thinking about maybe starting a Joe Rogan Experience style podcast but instead of having a mix of comedians and MMA stars i could have mini league rivals and other guest fpl nerds.

                    I could make millions just sitting down getting drunk,high and talking nonsense.
                    I am already good at this,just need to set up a camera and a mic.

                    You could be my Eddie Bravo Fulchester.

                  How many members are in FF scout leagues. Can you check that on livefpl? (I didn't join them yet, because of some mini leagues)

                  1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 14 hours ago

                    200 pages of approx 200 teams each on Livefpl so about 40000

                    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 14 hours ago

                      That is for league open to all.

                      1. Baps hunter
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 4 Years
                        2 months, 14 hours ago

                        Yes, but not every customer has joined these leagues on the other hand.

                    2. Baps hunter

                      2 months, 14 hours ago

                      So 100 000 isn't impossible. For that amount of players this place is pretty quiet.

                    Only shows 40k teams but it is surely bigger than that?

                    Anyways not everybody that signs up here enters the site mini-leagues as they don't want to their rivals to know where the action is.

                    There must be some way of finding out?

              Didn’t he have a goal disallowed, assisted Werner’s offside goal and also hit the post in the last game? Very unlucky to not get anything

                  "Points are what matter in this game in the end"

                  Then why are you so concerned with stats? As stats are hardly a fool-proof indicator. Seems to me if you're sat there fretting about a player's stats you need some better hobbies.

              He had xG good enough in last match and he hasn't been underperforming long term. Bad luck and variance, feel free to sell him for Vardy who has gotten more goals than anyone, if you really want to. I won't.

                Did Ronaldo > Vardy, Lukaku > DCL and have Antonio.

                So reckon I will be ok.

              Guy was known as a troll before, and he’s trolling again. I’d say going without Alonso is more of a risk..

            Wildcard time. Draft I’m happy with. Thoughts?

            Sanchez // Raya

            Cancelo Azpilicueta Laporte Cucurella Livramento

            Salah Son Townsend // Normann Brownhill

            Lukaku Aubameyang // Toney

              Few minutes nteresting choices there.
              Obvious questions, but why Auba and why Laporte and Cucurella over say Dias and Duffy.
              Never been a fan of rotating keepers, personally.

                • 4 Years

                Dias and Duffy is nice tbh. Get this feeling Duffy gets benched soon though…

                I just think Cucurella looks excellent and nailed. Big returns for him soon. Laporte immense goal threat.

                Aubameyang is a punt. Excellent history in the next 4 games; 3 at home which Auba and Arsenal look better.

                I love rotating keepers. Gets rid of the stress if can find those that rotate well.

              Not sure about the formation, but can't really fault the personnel.
              I know you have plenty of cover, but not worried about Foden and Pep roulette?

              1. Rocket Raccoon

                2 months, 13 hours ago

                Pep roulette still means no City players for me. May end up being the same for Chelsea if Tuchel becomes similarly unpredictable.

                I have Mbuemo on the bench, so some weeks it will be 3-4-3, some weeks 4-4-2, and some weeks 4-3-3 as shown up here. Mbuemo, Rudiger & Hwang will rotate.

                Of course it’s a risk Foden won’t play all GWs, but I think the potential against Burnley at home etc is too high to ignore

            As there is hardly anyone on and most of you aren’t trolls, what’s the thoughts on my team? My main aim is to get rid of my Watford players later on, especially the keepers.

            Bauchmann l Foster
            Alonso l James l Shaw l TAA l Henry
            Salah l Gray l Townsend l Sarr l Benrahma
            Ronaldo l Antonio l Toney

            I know many will say ‘the bench is too strong’ but that’s not a concern for me with all the injuries and unforeseen restings of players. I think a strong bench is important at the mo.

              I personally don't like threemiun and that midfield. Chilly made so big error leading to a goal, that you have to keep Alonso and hope. Sarr to Saka would probably be my first transfer.

              1. Rocket Raccoon
                • 11 Years
                2 months, 13 hours ago

                Yeah, maybe Saka, but still not convinced he’s a starter.

                Yes, possibly, but already made my transfers. May go double City defence with:

                Ron to Luk
                Shaw to Cancelo
                James/Alonso to Dias

              I also have double Everton midfield, Gray and Doucoure and ticking over nicely.

              Your biggest issue is the double CHE defence but feck only knows what defence Tuchel unleases GW8 so you could be sitting on a goldmine.

              Tempting, but probably best to at least wait for more news on the Brazil situation.

                for sure, won't make any moves until deadline regardless of price
                Have 2ft and one move is Semedo to City defender
                Could roll the other and have 2 for gw9

              I'm waiting until GW9 (unless I WC). But I'm probably not playing Sarr anyway. Will likely play Ben White in a 442.

                feels like the right time. haven't considered benching Sarr yet (new manager bounce?).
                Would be nice to be able to play Livra + Armstrong vs LEE and roll a transfer

            • 8 Years

            Rudiger or Azpili?

            Rudiger is more secure by how much?

            1. BeWater
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 12 hours ago

              Hard to say between those two. Don't think you can really go wrong with either. If I had to guess I'd say Rudiger plays more minutes. CHO, Chalobah and Reece James can all play where Azpi does.

            2. HMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 12 hours ago

              Azpi offers a bit more going forward and is the captain. Rudiger +0.5m is decent but now that gap is only 0.2m
              probably can't go wrong with either

            3. Gabistuta
              • 3 Years

            By 10% maybe? Thing with Rüdi is that there isn't really an alternative at LCB but Azpi will also usually play, either RCB or RWB.

            There is also a chance that TT experiments with a 4-2-3-1 soon so that should be borne in mind as well.

            Good news that Antonio isn't going on international duty. Can stop stressing about his hamstrings for a couple of weeks.

              Yep I think the break will do him good

              Very good. Got all the bases covered there.

              Like it and I would WC to something similar if play it this week

                Thanks mate, Foden is a little bit of a gamble I guess

              looks like a copy of the team of the year so far with the exception of Foden and Jimenez
              Hard to fault on current form
              If I still had my wildcard i'll look at someone like Son

                Son could be getting ahead of the game for sure, I need more confidence in Spurs before though… and I’d need to raise some more funds somehow.

                Thanks

                  yep just depends what your strategy is moving forward
                  team is on form and looks good just not super flexible
                  Jimenez to a Hwang type player could raise the funds but not urgent

              Very nice indeed, I'd be tempted to move Allan to Luiz though, better 5th mid to have imo and you never know when that. 1 might come in handy. Could even go Brownhill and save. 2, every penny counts 🙂

                Yep very true, could be any of those 3… I like Luiz too he’s due a wonder goal

            I own James and potentially looking to swap to Azpi (who is on the verge of rising)
            Already earmarked Semedo to Cancelo/Dias for gw8
            Would you just hold off swapping Chelsea defenders until after Brentford game, even if James misses out.
            Have cover in Livra, just annoying to miss out on price changes - already have poor team value
            As I write this it's probably better to just wait since we don't know re Trent availability

              Definitely wait, James might even be fit and well rested
