Fantasy Football Scout wins ‘best editorial’ at Football Content Awards 2021

Fantasy Football Scout has been voted as the ‘best editorial’ in Fantasy Football for 2021.

Scout scooped the accolade at the Football Content Awards, which took place at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London last week.

The competition in our category was fierce with Fantasy Football Hub, All About FPL, Planet FPL, Who Got The Assist?, Fantasy Football Fix, The Draft Society and Fantasy Football Geek all nominated.

We’d also like to congratulate FPL BlackBox and The FPL Wire for their fully deserved wins in the ‘best video’ and ‘best podcast’ categories, plus Let’s Talk FPL who took home the silver award.

But, most importantly, we are also hugely grateful for the ongoing support and interest (not to mention votes!) from our readers, viewers and listeners, who have for years helped us maintain our position as the number one resource for Fantasy Football.

We would not be where we are now without you, and we cannot thank you enough.

    Bench one.

    A) Benrahma (TOT)
    B) Sarr (eve)
    C) Livra (BUR)

    If Rudiger is out for the weekend the player first on bench would come in.

      In exactly the same spot - this one's a toughy

      Difficult one. I have Sarr and plan to play Livra ahead of him. I think Benrahma at home against Spurs is better than Everton away for Sarr (plus Watford being awful) so by process of deduction I'd probably bench Sarr. Definitely wouldn't bench Benrahma

        Could also consider Saka to someone

      Save if Saka is fine

    GW8 Mini-League Leaders:

    This is a report on the leaders of various Fantasy Football Scout FPL mini-leagues and community competitions after Gameweek 8, together with news about the latest FFS Live Hall of Fame update .

    ** FFSCOUT OPEN FPL LEAGUE

    New entry Zakaria Dagana comes straight in at number one in the Fantasy Football Scout mini-league ( https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/68048/standings/c, league code gsnskx). He has also risen to number two in the world, only two points behind Ryan Agalawatta, and has not yet played any chips apart from his wildcard in Gameweek 5.

    It is now the third Best League in FPL, based on the average scores of the top five managers in each league, with youtube.com/letstalkfpl still first. Our current top five are Zakaria Dagana, JT Venter, Temidayo Bankole, Ruha Shane Kinghen and Thanks FPL MATE (Dan), all of whom are in the overall top 66.

    ** FFSCOUT COMMUNITY MEMBERS LEAGUE

    Daniel Masson-Abraham leads for a second week in the Fantasy Football Scout Members mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/361/standings/c), which is also open to all, and has risen to 5th overall.

    The highest scorer in Gameweek 8 was Sherin V S, who played his wildcard for 83 points.

    The safety score was 47, with 142 teams to be removed and 2,116 going through to Gameweek 9. It will remain open till Gameweek 22, but new entrants must pass all the previous safety scores (Home - torresmagiclms.simplesite.com) to qualify.

    ** HEAD-TO-HEAD LEAGUES

    Martin Stubbs is still top of League 1 in MIR’s FFS Head-to-Head Leagues (www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/head-to-head-leagues/), with 21 points, and is 699th in the newly updated FFS Live Hall of Fame.

    ** FFS LIVE HALL OF FAME

    The FFS Live Hall of Fame (which, unlike the FFS Career Hall of Fame, can only be viewed by Premium Members) was updated during the international break after Gameweek 7, and 62,578 managers participating in the Fantasy Football Scout and Fantasy Football Scout Members mini-leagues are now ranked in it.

    1. Joey Tribbiani
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      tempting

    2. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      early imo..

  5. Cheeky Onion
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Bench one for this week:

    A) Livramento (BUR)
    B) Sarr (eve)
    C) Benrahma (TOT)

    1. NateDog
      • 1 Year

    2. McSauce

      C

    4. Cheeky Onion
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Feeling C since I also have Antonio. Although Watford's form has been poor enough to go with B

    5. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      C

  6. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Lukaku to be rested in the Champions League or benched home to Norwich.

    The easier league game makes more sense!!

    https://twitter.com/NizaarKinsella/status/1450441701764616193?t=BaAbtWzh5G7gdi0DyF4fSg&s=19

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Or perhaps just rested home to Malmo in fact.

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

      Yep, if he plays tonight no way he's getting the armband for me this weekend!

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Is Malmo in fact the easier game than Norwich?

        If he's rested tonight no sweat.

        Otherwise the cats amongst the pigeons!

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          * tomorrow even

    3. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Trollkaku will score vs Norwich imo, regardless

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Not if he's not on the pitch.

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          That's a given

    4. Lanley Staurel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      If he plays mid week then cat and pigeons for GW captaincy!

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Defo!

    5. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      And so it begins.
      *pops out to grab some popcorn*

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Tbf it's a direct quote from the manager.

        Makes it more likely for the upcoming Champions League match or failing that the Norwich game.

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Tuchel on Lukaku's six game club goal drought:

          "In my opinion, I feel Romelu overplayed. I think he played too many competitions over the summer and now he played Nations League. He is a fantastic athlete, a competitive guy and he wants to be out there and win, digging deep"

    6. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      TT wouldn't bench a well known flat track bullt in either of those games..

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        TT is thinking about the whole season and cup competitions. Not flat track bully theories for fpl points.

    7. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      I think he'll be rested vs Malmo and in line to start against Norwich if I'm honest.

  7. thewhitepele
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    G2G and safe FT? Got 0.5m ITB:

    Ramsdale
    Cancelo Azpi James
    Salah(C) Son Raphinha Townsend
    Lukaku Antonio Toney

    Foster, Livra, Brownhill, Duffy

    1. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I'd save

    2. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      definite save..

  8. Gudjohnsen

    2. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years

  9. olidooley
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Hey guys….WC active….any suggestions for these dilemmas?

    1) Sanchez or Ramsdale?
    2) Rudiger, Chilwell or James?

    ** Foster
    TAA Dias Cancelo ** Livramento
    Salah Son Raphinha Mbuemo Normann
    Lukaku Toney Archer

    1. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      S
      C

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Sanchez (I prefer Raya for upcoming run)
      Rudiger (Provides safety till Christmas)

    3. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      SC

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

      R
      R

    5. pingissimus
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Sanchez but little in it and Rudiger for me in that set up. Not sure there's enough cover for Chilwell

    6. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      R & C out of the options you have provided.

      Who are the 5 must have players in GW8?

      1. BeWater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Do you mean GW9?

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Like Rafiki said in Lion King, "it doesn't matter, it's in the past"

          1. Firmino
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Salah
            Lukaku
            Chelsea def

            1. Super Saints
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              Lol Lukaku!?

              No must haves in 9 other than Salah maybe

          2. FPL Brains
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            I think a couple of Chelsea defenders are key.

        • Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          A. Raphina WOL Nor LEI
          B. Mbeumo LEI Bur NOR

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            No offence to Mbuemo as he has the makings of a super little FPL asset

            But Raphinha by about 50 billion miles

            Even if his next three were Bayern, City, Chelsea

            He’s different gravy

            1. NABIL - FPL otai
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              Agree with this.

              Mbeumo can be a good value buy but can also become just another Traore

              Raph is another level

              1. Super Saints
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                Thank you

            2. CRO KLOPP
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              This. He has become a key player even in the Brasil national team

              1. Super Saints
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                Thanks

            3. Super Saints
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              Thanks mate, agree, think I'll do Benny to Raph this week and Sissoko to Mbeumo next week all being well, which is highly unlikely.
