The Scout Squad’s best FPL players for Double Gameweek 22

The best Fantasy Premier League (FPL) goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards for Double Gameweek 22 are discussed as the Scout Squad returns after its winter break.

For those new to this feature, it’s a weekly piece that always takes the form of a ‘Free Hit’-type selection for the upcoming Gameweek.

Fantasy Football Scout contributors Az, Sam, Neale and Tom each propose an 18-man long-list of Fantasy players, explaining their notable inclusions and omissions in the article below.

The Scout Squad also serves as a precursor to the Scout Picks, as the players listed will then be narrowed down to a squad of 15 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83.0m) for final our weekly selection ahead of Friday’s deadline.

Each writer must meet the following requirements:

  • At least one goalkeeper costing £5.0m or less
  • At least one sub-£5.0m defender
  • At least one midfielder listed at £6.5m or below
  • At least one forward priced at £7.0m or lower
  • No more than three players from the same club

    Rough with the Smooth, Gameweek 21.

    How did your Gameweek go?

    You can share your tales of joy and woe here.

    1. THE SHEEP HUNTER
      • 4 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Terrible.

    2. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Like many, smooth was Bowen(c), the obvious choice.
      Not too much rough with 79 pts. No returns from KDB, Cancelo, Mount or Dennis was a bit unfortunate.

    3. putana
      • 3 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      92 points. up to 70k OR

    4. Hits Magnet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Bowen as Capt and scored 75 points with no hits and managed to drop a 1000 places to 12k ?? not sure how I achieved that 🙁

    5. Zenith UK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Upside;
      - 83 no hits.

      Downside;
      - West Ham fan that hates betting on his own players in case of the double-whammy if it backfires. Wanted to TC Bowen. Didn't have the guts, but luckily gave him armband.
      - Johnson (already had him wasn't a double GW panic transfer) 0 pointer with Gelhardt's 4 on the bench (someone I've been praising recently)
      - Everton 2nd fixture cancelled means James > Keane back fired (it was free, but it's costing me this week - 22 - now) as bench players earned just as many as him

    6. snow pea in repose

      Bowen (c) and Coufal saved my week...

    7. ZimZalabim
      • 5 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Rough: Antonio over Bowen Captain and taking a hit for Gray and the second game getting postponed, red arrow tripled my rank in the past 3 weeks.

      Smooth: Bowen not scoring more goals today and heaping more misery on us non cappers. Lucky to escape with just a small red.

    8. Sailboats
      • 6 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Smooth - Bowen (c). Saka and Alonso auto sub in for Maddison and Watkins

    9. Mozumbus
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        70, so it went ok. Tripled up westham. Bernardo benched for Raphina, and Bachman for Guita cost 8 points. Antonio (c) over Bowen was another complain 😀

      • Johan Queef
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        Smooth: Coufal recovering from mystery covid for a CS and assist. Watkins not playing so Broja off the bench. First green arrow in a long while.

        Rough: taking a -8 to get Son (injured) and Gray (match postponed).

      • liverbear
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        Rough. Pickford 1 and dcl 0 in for ramsdale and edouard 6 for a -4. Would have started Bachmann 5. Down 14 on the 2 transfers due to eve postponement. Also Antonio captain over bowen and Johnson 0. Alonso 6 left on bench.
        Bringing kane in early and snow match was the start of an awful run. 43k down to 157k in few weeks through bad luck.

      • sulldaddy
        • 11 Years
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        Bowen cap saved week. Coufal good and a bunch of zeros or minimum points
        71 total dropped to ~50k OR

      • I am 42
        • 8 Years
        15 days, 9 hours ago

        got knock out of the cup by 4 points due to Johnson no show and or pp of Everton game, had Gray and DCL for that match

      • umerlfc
        • 5 Years
        15 days, 9 hours ago

        Smooth

        Bowen (TC)
        103 points
        52k - > 18k

        1. Gunneryank

            The unmitigated gall...i love it.

          • 5 Years

          Played my WC and got 97 points
          Original team would have scored 30!

        3. Levi's 501
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 6 hours ago

          79.

          Rough, Antonio cap not Bowen.

          Smooth, Still in all cups.

        4. The Bad Seed
          • 4 Years
          15 days, 6 hours ago

          Smooth: Absolutely nothing
          Rough: from 3k to 10k in 1 GW....

        5. Gunneryank
            15 days, 6 hours ago

            Rough: not much

            Smooth: From 400k to 250k. Best GW of the season. Bowen obviously, but the 12 by Coufal, the Broja goal, Son and Jota and Antonio pitching in. I got a GW right lol. Thank you, Hammers...

          • Igz08
            • 4 Years
            15 days, 5 hours ago

            Smooth - Coufal in, Bowen (tc). 112 points - gw rank 1,319! And into the top 10k

            Rough - well, I should hardly be complaining 🙂

            • 4 Years

            Bowen cap, and 993 in the world. Welcome to Liverpool in the summer Jarrod!

          • Toby Lerone
            • 6 Years
            15 days, 5 hours ago

            Rough: DCL 0, Johnson 0 (benched alonso)
            Smooth: bowen C 42 points thankfully saved me. 74 (-4) all out

          • thereisnogod
            • 9 Years
            15 days, 5 hours ago

            Rough - Took a hit to bring in DCL & Doucoure for Salah and Broja for a net loss of 17 pts + a FT.

            Smooth - Bowen (c) and 81 pts (-4) overall.

            Smooth: brought in Coufal,
            captained Bowen
            98pts and OR 550

            Rough: they only way now is down.

            • 9 Years
            15 days, 4 hours ago

            Smooth: James and Joelinton (yes, I know) to Coufal and Antonio. 104 points -4 with Bowen (C) and even Gelhart off the bench for 4. Nice big green arrow.

            Rough: teams a mess for next week. Salah, Son, Gelhart out and need transfers. Regulion doubtful. Probable free hit incoming.

          • dansmusen
            • 4 Years
            15 days, 4 hours ago

            Pretty smooth week getting Bowen and Coufal for a hit and scored 87. 200k rank but still only 8 in my cash ML.

          • Stejson
            • 2 Years
            15 days, 4 hours ago

            Smooth: Bowen (c), Coufal. No Foden or Maddison gave me Alonso jam off the bench.
            Rough: had £5 @ 150/1 on a Bowen hattrick

          • lugs
            • 4 Years
            15 days, 2 hours ago

            Rough
            i had no dgw players so i used FH, lost Pickford & Gray through postponement and capped Antonio over Bowen

            Smooth
            67pts and only an 11k rank drop, it could have been worse i suppose without the FH, and it could have been much better if i made the right captain choice and picked better players 😆

            Smooth:
            Y.Nott, the early leader in the January to May League, triple captained Jarrod Bowen for a score of 117 and a Gameweek Rank of 310.
            The top ten in this mini-league all scored 100 or more. They all captained Bowen of course, and four of them triple captained him.

              No Smooth.
              The Rough was we had one of our very frequent mini-powercuts while I was sorting out my team, and I only noticed just after the deadline that my Bowen captaincy hadn't registered 🙁

            Rollercoaster!

            Rough:
            - GW20 WC, bought in:
            -- DCL & Gray. They have 2 points in total between them since.
            -- Dalot & Telles. They have 1 point in total between them since.
            -- Sterling. He didn't play and then I already sold him in GW21.
            -- Watkins. He had no fixture and then I already sold him in GW21.
            -- King, thinking Dennis was going to AFCON.
            -- Son. Injured already.

            Smooth:
            - Overall gain of 45pts from two transfers:
            -- Took a hit to sell Watkins (no-show) & Sterling (2) for Antonio (9) & Bowen (21)
            -- Without those moves, I would have got an impressive 0ps from captaining DCL in his DGW
            Cheries on the cake:
            - Telles & Dalot no-shows brought Trent (4) & Jota (5) off the bench 😀
            - GR of 386,570, and the first time in the top 2m all season! (1,666,072) Wooo ❗

          On FH. Too many 2s?

          DDG²
          Rüdiger² Alonso² Reguilon²
          Bruno² Maddison² Moura² Tielemans²
          Ronaldo² Kane² Dennis²

          [Bachman² Bowen Brownhill² Tsimikas]

          1. Boberella
            • 5 Years
            15 days, 11 hours ago

            Very solid FH team. Bowen and TAA/Jota could get very good SGW points though.

          2. Zenith UK
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            15 days, 11 hours ago

            Bruno - Has one attacking return in his last 8 (I excluded the game he missed) and United are in dire form. Jota or Bowen instead?
            Alonso - Will blank or get a minus against City. Trent or Robbo better choice (would require the Bruno downgrade I believe)..
            Rudiger - As above

            *Sidenote, if need additional funds for the above, no way DDG doesn't start so may as well make Bachman a 3.9 for additional funds.

              He's due, for sure. I may see more sense nearer the time, but now thinking I might as well go big or go home, balls out and double players in.

          Bit of feedback please, the rookiest of errors and got Son in before he got injured, any moves are for hits.

          Rank after subs 25k

          Lloris
          Trent, Dias, Cancelo
          Bsilva, Jota, Bowen, Gray
          Dennis, DCL, Antonio

          Son, James, Livra, Foster

          A. Son to Madders (c) -4
          B. Son & James to Madders & Robbo -8
          (Jota -> Salah when hes back).
          C. Son, Antonio or DCL & James to Madders, Kane (c) & Robbo - 12
          D. Something else, please help!

            This looks tough enough. I've been summoned

            Wildcard. Bench Foden, Dias, Cash and Forster (Southampton)

            Ignore premium forwards: keep your frontline, Trent, Jota, Gray and Bowen

            Hold enough money ITB for Maddison and Jota to Salah and Coutinho, as your two free transfers over GWs 23 and 24. Alternatively, Antonio to Watkins for GW23 and Jota to Salah for GW24. Maddison is fixture proof, but you might bench him for Gray sometimes, especially Everton's upcoming DGWs

            James, Bernardo, Lloris, Livra and Son can go now. They've served you well, but aren't needed in the second half of the season. Ait-Nouri and maybe Royal (ignore Brighton) can come in for Livra and James

            I'd advise Sa over DDG, but that's just me

            It's easier to plan here: https://www.livefpl.net/myteam/

            • 4 Years
            15 days, 10 hours ago

            just do a -4 Son to Maddison/Tielemans/Moura, don't bother with big hits, maybe squeeze kane in for -8

        8. Gabbiadini

          15 days, 11 hours ago

          Ramsdale
          TAA | Cancelo | Cash
          Jota | Foden | Bowen | Brownhill
          Ronaldo | Antonio | Dennis

          Steele | Johnson | Salah | Goode

          1FT, 2.1 ITB.
          Trade plan is to either upgrade Brownhill (6.4 to spend) or Goode (6.0 to spend), thoughts on, which option is best?
          The other alternative would be to FH, however, Son's injury has me less interested.

        9. putana

          other than the penalty miss how did dcl look in the game he played?

          really tempted to get him in against norwich. If not then king

        10. Willesden Mariner
          • 3 Years

          • 9 Years
          15 days, 11 hours ago

          Took a hit to bring Maddison for Son. Shall I take another hit to bring in Jota or Moura for Raphinha/Bilva or used 2nd FH? (Current & FH team below):

          Current Team
          Ramsdale
          Rudiger Sanchez TAA Cancelo (Tierney)
          Maddison Raphinha Bilva (ESR, Brownhill)
          Ronaldo (c) King Watkins*

          FH Team
          DDG
          Rüdiger ALONSO REGUILON
          Maddison JOTA MOURA TIELEMANS
          Ronaldo DENNIS KANE

          1. Boberella
            • 5 Years
            15 days, 11 hours ago

            Current team with 5 DGWers is pretty good, although already on a hit.
            Not understanding your use of Upper/Lower case on your free hit team though. They all have DGW apart from Jota (Assuming Brownhill doesn’t play)
            I’d be tempted to FH seeing as you have 2 of them. I’ve got a similar dilemma.

        12. Boberella

          15 days, 11 hours ago

          Bottomed last page, any help here DZ?

          Been completely set on FH for 22 for the last 2 weeks, but having second thoughts now and just considering. -4 instead to field 6 DGWers.

          Sanchez*
          TAA Reguilon* Cancelo
          Mount* KDB Bilva Bowen
          Dennis* Watkins Pukki

          Steele Dawson Livra Son
          1FT 3.3itb

          A) Son + Pukki > Maddison + Kane/Ron (-4)
          B) FH and get DDG, Kane, Ronaldo, Alonso, Maddison, Moura, Lamptey, and a good bench

            Havent heard anything definitive.

          Do I buy Maddison short term or Jota for the long term?

            Who are people picking for double gameweek, Emerson or Reguilón? And why?

            Thoughts on this FH?

            Lloris
            Trent • Alonso • Cucurella
            Maddison • Mount • Jota • Lucas
            Kane(C) • CR7 • King

              Yeah, not bad. Lloris and Cucarella different to most FH teams I’ve seen. Could work out well.
              I’d prefer Dennis over King though.

                  Are you talking about Reece James? If so, Tuchel said he will be sidelined for 8 weeks.

                    Yes.

                    Oh. Missed that. And it’s not on the injury listing here or his info on the site.

              Mates, needs your input

              A) Watkins Son to Ronaldo Maddison (-4)

              B) Free hit, though Im not fascinated by the fixs

              Fab
              TAA Rudiger** Keane Cancelo
              Son Bernardo Gray Bowen
              Antonio Watkins

                With only 1 DGW player and 1FT, I’d almost certainly FH that if you have 2 FHs.
                There is however, talk of Villa being in with a shout of a DGW (apparently), and With WHU good fixtures, just Son to Maddy for free would be the non FH move for me.

                  Or lose Antonio instead.

                You have got so many good single gameweekers there, honestly just take a hit or two

                  Yeah, initial plan is to do get Ronaldo Maddy and thats it.
                  I was thinking also for Dennis but then I will have to make a lot of transfers to get Salah back.

              Looking to bring in a couple more DGWers with 2 FT but most of my SGWers have great fixtures, feel I'll be debating this right up until deadline.

                Can’t think of too many dgw players I’d want to use transfer on for the coming weeks

              Best move here?

              De Gea
              TAA - 
Rüdiger - Reguilón
              Jota - Bowen - Raphinha - Gray
              Ronaldo - Antonio - Watkins

              (Ramsdale) - Bernardo - Cancelo - Livramento) - 2 FT - 2 FHs in hand

              A) Bernardo —> Madison (Save 1 FT)
              B) Bernardo + Antonio —> Maddison + Dennis (2 FT)
              C) Antonio + Watkins + Bernardo —> Kane + Dennis + Gordon (-4)

              Cheers!

                Why do you want to get rid Antonio? Leeds, Watford, and Newcastle are teams with worst defense.

                  15 days, 10 hours ago

                  Maybe because Antonio has been very poor over the last 10 gameweeks?

                Who should I pick up this week, Reguilón, Emerson or Lamptey?

                1. JUNITED

                  For what? FT? Emerson. Cheaper than Regu while Lamptey has blank GW24. But if you have enough cover in GW24, you can go Lamptey though since Brighton's fixture is pretty good.

                Hi I know it was not the beat time to WC but it’s to late for me, I hit the button couple days ago because my team looked like a christmas tree. Later I learned most of the flags were not big deal so… I kind of regret but the past is past… I want to put some good thinking into this now… I appreciate your thoughts and critics…

                Current draft:

                DDG Rams
                TAA Cancelo Reguilon Lamptey Targget
                Jota Maddison Moura Bowen Ramsey
                Ronaldo Kane King(or Dennis)

                The idea is to drop one of Kane or Ronaldo to get Salah later. Or even both and get Kdb as well…

                  Dennis > King.
                  Can you drop Targett? Digne signing probably ousts him. Look to a WOL defender (2nd best defensive team in the league - only City have conceded less).
                  Moura - I get why most want him this week on DGW but after that not a fan, che next and then Son's expected back. Not sure who to recommend instead, Gray probably, next five are; nor AVL new LEE sou. Not bad at all.

                2. Cantonesque
                    15 days, 10 hours ago

                    Targett and Ramsey could have minutes threatened by Digne and Coutinho?

                    Kane/Ron is bold, probably right way to use WC at this juncture.

                    Moura and Maddison are DGW picks as opposed to WC picks - and I'm not convinced by their prospects for hauls in DGW. Maybe at least one of them should be a longer-term pick - City is your glaring midfield absence, Arsenal also an option with several high-scoring mids to choose from and great fixtures on the horizon (though also some blanks).

                  15 days, 10 hours ago

                  I feel like the DGW hasn't changed my plans too much but it has thrown a mini-spanner in my plans... 1FT & 7.8M ITB!

                  DDG²
                  Trent (c), Cancelo, Johnson, Keane
                  Son, Bernardo, Bowen, Gray
                  Dennis², Antonio

                  Steele, Mahrez, Gelhardt*, Rudiger²

                  My initial transfer plans were Mahrez & Rudiger > KDB & Robbo (-4). The injury to Son throws a spanner in the works. I can instead do Mahrez & Son > KDB & Jota (-4) and bench Johnson. Then it's do I start Keane against a toothless Norwich or do I run Rudiger for his double? Alternatively I can do Mahrez, Son, Rudiger > KDB, Jota & Robbo (-8).

                  Rest of the team, DDG has a double, Trent plays BRE. Cancelo & Bernardo play CHE and I think they smash them to flex why they're really champions of Europe. Bowen (is on fire) and Antonio have the third worst defensive team in the league in LEE visiting. Gray plays the worst team in the league and well Dennis has the glorious double of two of the bottom three.

                  Thoughts/suggestions/what haven't I thought of? (I don't think I need to FH)

                    Which combo does best this week.

                    A) Ronaldo + Trossard

                    B) Dennis + Bruno

                    Leaning towards B! Cheers

                      I like A but think Dennis is needed this gw

                        Yeah if I picked A, in order to get Dennis, would be -4 for Toney or DCL

                          i'd do Toney to a Watford striker as 1st move....i don't think Bruno or Trossard are worth hits unless you can't field a reasonable playing 11

                            I’m chasing big time at the moment, and I feel Toney might grab a shady goal in one of the 2 games..

                            A Bruno goal could make up for the hit I suppose?!

                          James is injured long term so I'd start watkins or transfer him out

                    Ramsdale Martinelli Johnson Livra

                    Watkins + Son to Dennis + Maddison -4pts best option?

                      Dennis and mads are great

                      But Watkins is likely to have a dgw v soon too

                      Antonio isn't really firing atm but has great fixture, maybe just Son to Moura/Maddison/Tielemans, don't like the Lookman pick fwiw

                    I just wanted to let everyone know that we're organising some initiatives to connect people for some of the countries that are well represented on the DZ here.

                    FPL Blackwolf has (re)started #FPLUSA: https://twitter.com/FPL_BlackWolf/status/1481123331394863107

                    The thread also includes discussion of #FPLCAN and #FPLAUS (I think Aus may already have some kind of meet-up planned).

                        Not sure, I think I've got 3-4 followers from NZ, but it may not be enough so far. I don't see any recent hits for the hashtag #FPLNZ.

                    I feel like my last post was too meaty so nobody fancied reading it, I'll keep it short and sweet this time... 1FT & 7.8M ITB;

                    DDG²
                    Trent (c), Cancelo, Johnson, Keane
                    Son*, Bernardo, Bowen, Gray
                    Dennis², Antonio

                    Steele, Mahrez*, Gelhardt*, Rudiger²

                    A) Mahrez & Rudiger > KDB & Robbo (-4) - Bench Keane & Johnson
                    B) Mahrez & Son > KDB & Jota (-4) - Bench Johnson
                    C) Mahrez, Son & Rudiger > KDB, Robbo & Jota (-8) - Bench Johnson & Keane

                    Thoughts/suggestions/what haven't I thought of? (I don't think I need to FH)

                      KDB overpriced for me, for his from and the Pep roulette, maybe do Son and Mahrez to Maddison+Moura, 2 x gwers and money left to bring Salah back in a couple of weeks

                        I think KDB is the most nailed player in that midfield. With no Mahrez as well and Torres gone that means Sterling/Jesus/Foden/Grealish for the wings and KDB/Rodri/Bernardo for the centre

                        Not a fan of Moura because after GW22 three of their next four are against the best three defensive teams in the league.

                      Not a fan of -8, but your B looks good. I would buy KdB and Maddison though. I would also play Rudiger and bench Keane. Not confident of either Chelsea or Everton defense. I understand that Everton plays Norwich, but its an away game while Rudiger has 2 chances of clean sheet. And, who knows CHE vs MCI may turn out to be a Champions League final replay.

                        My concern with Maddison is no recognised striker in the team at the moment and with the exception of GW22 his fixtures look awful.

                        Nah Chelsea need to win so they have to attack and City will just ruin them. I get what you mean with the double attempt at a clean sheet for Rudiger though

                    Considering a BB this week. What do you think?

                    Lloris
                    Lamptey, Alexander-Arnold, Rudiger, Dalot
                    Gallagher, Jota, Bowen
                    Calvert-Lewin, Antonio, Dennis (C)
                    (Ramsdale, Bernardo, Cancelo, Son*)

                    1FT 3.3m itb.

                    a) Son -> Maddison
                    b) a + Antonio -> Kane / Ronaldo (-4)

                      15 days, 9 hours ago

                      Antonio to Kane/Ronaldo is a short-term move. In the next five weeks West Ham play the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th worst defensive teams in the league.

                    Ramsdale Bilva James* Livra*

                    A) James —> spurs defender (bench Watkins and play 442)

                    B) Bilva —> Maddison (bench Watkins and play 352)

                    A has 2 on the bench. B leaves me with just 1 on the bench

                      james is probably the priority to shift since he's injured and has couple of blanks coming up anyway

                    Best move here?

                    A) Salah -> Maddison* (bench Gray/Brownhill*)

                      I would have done A and benched Brownhill. B is also very tempting, but do you think Dalot is going to miss both the games? If yes, then you could play Cancelo and bench Dalot. If no, then there's no need to transfer out a healthy dgw player.

                        Dalot is a difficult one - played the last game and they kept a CS, but still feel he’s 2nd choice to Wan-B. If shifting him to Lowton then it also opens up a MUN spot (Bruno perhaps).

                          Didn’t he go off injured in the last game?

                            15 days, 10 hours ago

                            Do you mean Dalot, Wan-B or Bruno? I thought they were all fit but could be wrong

                            1. Hits from the Bong
                              • 3 Years
                              15 days, 10 hours ago

                              Dalot went off with a massive gash and/or injured ankle I think

                          Agree, and Lowton looks solid long term option. Also, they have 2 home matches this week, but against two quite attacking opponents, Watford and Leicester.

                      A and bench Brownhill.
