Scoutcast: FPL ‘dreamers’ welcome Conte’s return to the top flight

Joe and Andy are joined by Kylie to help Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers prepare for Gameweek 11.

A key trend during this rotation hit FPL season has been the value of Southampton’s defender Tino Livramento (£4.4m), whose points have been arriving off the bench each week when needed.

With regular Scoutcaster Seb sidelined, the show has turned to its very own Livramento, Kylie from the 3Amigos podcast, to fill in.

She helps Joe and Andy through a packed show that takes in the arrival of former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte at Tottenham, assesses the low and high owned underperformers and plays a game of ‘buy, hold, sell’.

“We as FPL managers are dreamers, we are all chasing that elusive 300-point scoring unicorn,” is one of Kylie’s lines that is likely to stick with many regular listeners and viewers for some time, particularly those investing in Spurs assets hoping that the former Italy manager can turn around the fortunes of Harry Kane (£12.1m) and Son Heung-min (£10.2m).

Can ‘the UniKane’ revive many FPL managers’ seasons too?

Elsewhere, new dad Andy drops out towards the end to tackle some family issues, leaving Joe and Kylie to manoeuvre their way through the show’s remaining regular features.

There are fixtures to frisk, captains and transfer plans to reveal and decisions to be made regarding the Scoutcast’s community team. This is being managed by the show on behalf of a top manager, who is taking a season-long break. Thankfully, it has achieved another green arrow following a well-timed Wildcard a few weeks back. Can this strong form continue?

The differentials section takes on an extra resonance this week, as FPL managers look for a way to climb their mini-leagues when almost all their rivals will be perma-captaining Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) for the foreseeable future.

    Morning.
    After last night, am I pretty safe to do Azpi to Chilly and possibly get in James too?

    1. LAMELA_AND_CONSUELA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      In theory these moves are good but somehow I don't trust myself as regards to predicting Tuchel's lineup.

    2. Your Man With The Hair
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I think one would be enough

    3. G Banger
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I'm thinking the same for Azpi => Chilly

    4. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Thanks.

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Probably discussed a million times already but which is your preferred pick from Mbueno (assumed fit), Gallagher and ESR?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Gallagher for me

      1. LAMELA_AND_CONSUELA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Second this

    2. fylde2022
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      ESR and Mbeumo both have tasty fixtures.
      Mbeumo has an expected goal of 1.66.
      Mbeumo's expected goal rate is 1.28.

    3. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      My order would be:
      Gallagher
      ESR
      Mbeumo
      Certainly for the next 3 anyway

    4. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Cheers all, I think I'm on Gallagher, Mbeuno, ESR atm

    5. RedRo
        2 months, 20 days ago

        I think I’m ESR, Mbeumo, Gallagher. If I had the ft’s I’d have multiple of them

    6. Your Man With The Hair
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Morning all, looking a bit of help on this.

      After my best ever start to a season (top 30k - still very modest but I usually start slow) I've been tumbling the past 3 weeks. I still think my team is in decent shape but maybe I'm deluded. With 1FT and 1.4m itb, do I need an overhall?

      Sanchez
      TAA, Chilwell, Cancelo
      Salah, Foden, Gray Raphinha
      Vardy, Jiminez, Antonio

      (Foster, Duffy, Omobamidele, Bissouma)

      (repost from last article)

      1. Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        I'd save and look at 1) ways to Kane/Son for e.g. Vardy next gw or Gray to one of the cheapies I've mentioned above

      2. LAMELA_AND_CONSUELA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Maybe Gray to Mbeumo. Brentford's three next fixtures Norwich Newcastle and Everton. Of course if he is confirmed fit.

      3. Will Kane
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Demarai Gray is the one that sticks out to me here. Maybe him to Gallagher/Zaha/Trossard/Bowen etc?

      4. Your Man With The Hair
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Thanks guys

    7. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Put in order of who to play for GW11.

      First 3 players start, last 2 are on the bench

      B - Antonio (LIV)

    8. TimoTime

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Livramento

    9. Pukki Blinders

      Repost from previous article…

      Who to bring in this week? 2 FTs , 1.3 itb and have WC remaining

      A. Cancelo -> Chilwell/James
      B. Cancelo -> Reguilon
      C. Ronaldo + Sarr -> Son + Toney
      D. Other?

      My Team for reference:

      Sanchez 4.0
      TAA Cancelo Rudi White Livra
      Salah Raph Sarr Mbueumo Gilmour
      Ronaldo Jimenez Antonio

      1. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        C looks good

        1. fylde2022
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          C. Easy.

      2. LAMELA_AND_CONSUELA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        C

      3. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        White > James?

    10. fylde2022
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Would you double up with Kane for this gw as a free transfer?

      Ramsdale
      Livramento TAA Chilwell
      ESR Mbeumo Raph Salah Son
      Vardy Toney

      Foster Cancelo Jansson Davis

      1.5m itb

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 21 days ago

        No. Son alone is enough spurs coverage for now until/if Conte can convince Kane to be interested at spurs again.

        1. fylde2022
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          OK thanks.

      2. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        No I wouldn't do the Spurs double up now.

        Assume you're thinking Vardy to Kane -personally I'd rather have Vardy for gw11 than Kane

        1. fylde2022
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Yeah I was looking to switch Vardy for Kane.
          I'll hold for now, then.

      3. Kryptonite666
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Next week I would

        1. fylde2022
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Thanks. I'll see what his body language is like.

    11. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Start two each from these:

      A: Livra
      B: White
      C: Duffy(have Sanchez starting)

      X: Mbeumo(have Toney starting)
      Y: ESR
      Z: Jimenez

      1. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        A and Y

        1. House Frey Wedding Planner
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Oh two each....sorry I misread. Then B and Z as well

          1. Echoes
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Thanks

        2. Echoes
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Should've made myself more clear. Two from the top three and two from the bottom three

      2. Kryptonite666
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Can you start all attackers and White ?

        1. Echoes
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Not possible. Either a 343 or 352, and one attacker misses out sadly

    12. Big Weng
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I have Gray, Sarr & Benny 1FT 1.2m ITB, shall I take a -4 and get rid of 2 of them for Gallagher and ESR (have Raph) or just use 1 FT?

    13. The White Pele
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      chances Havertz starts vs Burnley?

      1. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        High chance if Lukaku and Werner are still out

      2. Fpl Richie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        I think our 3 points are safe yes.

    14. Babit1967
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Been thinking about a Toney captaincy punt, anyone else?

      1. fylde2022
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Sure, if you're chasing.
        It is a risk, though.
        Most will captain Salah.

        1. Babit1967
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Yeah, it is risky, going to be a last minute decision

      2. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Same. Giving it a real thought.

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

        crazy.

    15. Kryptonite666
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      What do you guys think of this team

      0.9 ITB, next move ?

      Sanchez
      TAA James Chilwell (Cancelo) (Livramento)
      Salah Son Foden Mbeumo ESR
      Vardy Toney (Perica)

      1. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Just GTG, wait and see

    16. mcginnntonic
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Raphina out for who? 8.1m budget. or wait til next week and do havertz and raph to son and someone cheap?

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Why Raph out ?

      2. fylde2022
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        You need to think about bringing in Son/Kane.
        GW12 turns tasty, on top of the new manager bounce.

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Yeah, but then there's the small issue of £3.8+ extra needed, so who has to go

    17. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      What would you do?

      Have Azpi/Cancelo/Chilwell/Livra/Duffy

      1) Start Azpi this week, bench him next week and play Livra vs Nor, sell Azpi before GW13 and get James, TAA or Reguilon

      2) Azpi to James but would probably mean I won't be playing Livra vs Nor then and have double Che def for some longer period

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Get James and play Livra. Bench someone else.

        1. Atimis
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Nah

    18. seanmcging
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      What do we think about the Vardy/Kane/Ronaldo hokey cokey over the coming GW's, I think there could be some good returns in playing those fixtures?

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        I think it’s interesting if you can move for free

        1. fylde2022
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Your midfield/defence will be, severely, weakened.
          I, personally, think it's a bit much to rely on 3 players to bring in the points.

          1. seanmcging
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            I'm thinking just own of of the 3 based on fixtures on a week by week basis.

    19. mcginnntonic
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Duffy to chilwell this week? or roll

      1. sandman58
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        No brainer

    20. sandman58
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Have Vardy and Jimenez
      2 free transfers
      Thinking both out for Kane and Hwang
      Yes or no ?? (Also have Son)

      1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        just post below about Vardy
        surely can at least give him against Leeds?

    21. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      2 FT's and planning on rolling one for the international break. Therefore would you do:

      a) Bachman > Guaita
      b) Antonio > Toney

      B is more of a punt but feels like it has the bigger upside. Have made good progress into top 60k so keen to keep it going

      1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        a more sensible

    22. Alonso The Great Midfielder
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Vardy captaining is not very punt right? Hard to think some poster here even want to rid him after 2 blank(one is come at half time and one against better side arsenal) And now they face Leeds

    23. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Inside the top100k with a wildcard still- When is the best time to use as struggling now? Team is

      Sanchez Foster
      Azpi Rudiger Cancelo White Williams
      Salah Foden Saka Brownhill Raph
      Antonio CR7 Toney
      0.3 itb

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Over the int'l break. However, your D needs some work.

      2. fylde2022
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Always after International break, to cover any potential injuries.

        I wouldn't wildcard for the sake of 2-3 players, as they can be managed through free transfers.

      3. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        thx

    24. Saviour22
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Ramsdale
        Dias Cancelo James TAA Manquillo
        Raphi Salah B Silva Mbuembo Brownhill
        Kaku Anto Rodrigo

        Suggestion

        A. Cancelo & kaku - Chilwell & Kane/Wilson
        B. Cancelo - Chilwell
        C. Cancelo & B Silva - Chilwell & ESR

        1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Just Lukaku . Kane/Vardy imo

      • Little Red Lacazette
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Which is the better double up? Chilly+Rudi or Chilly+James?

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          James risk is worth it imo

        2. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          CR if WC gone, CJ if WC available.

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

          I've got rudi / james

      • Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        A) Benrahma -> Gallagher/Mbeueno
        B) Antonio -> Toney

        My Spurs conundrum for this team going ahead like many. I'd planned to roll but hey.

        A. Havertz to Son (I'll be priced out of a straight move presuming he rises before deadline - exact cash move). This means keeping Vardy.
        B. Hold. Then Havertz to Son by downgrading Vardy or Antonio.
        C. Hold. Then Vardy to Kane, Havertz to Foden.
        D. Other.

        Do you think Son scores significantly more points in the next 5 or so games, compared to Foden?

          Id say so yes very nice fixtures

            I've got Kane but deciding on whether to go for the double up

            go on. I have to choose between the two and I'm getting sucked into the spurs hype

              If its a straight pick between the two I would pick son for sure

          coin toss.

          Maybe find some Burnley analysis and see which side they are weaker at defending against! If not It genuinely is a coin toss!

        Thoughts on Antonio -> Toney to fund either Havertz > Son or Vardy -> Kane next week?

          Toying with the idea myself

          Not terrible but could come back to bite

          Will you be able to afford to get Antonio back later? I imagine his price will hold relatively steady. I did Vardy to Kane but keeping Antonio for GW16+.
