Scoutcast: Explosive differentials for the FPL season run-in

Joe, Andy and Seb help Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers prepare for Gameweek 35 and beyond.

With only four Gameweeks remaining, time is tight for FPL managers to climb up the rankings.

Low-owned players with the potential for notching explosive returns look key to a successful conclusion to the campaign.

Our Scoutcast trio consider the best options, looking at notable double-digit haulers and considering their expected minutes on the pitch.

Even as they uttered the name Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) as a key difference maker, the Belgian was notching returns, as this latest episode was streamed live during Manchester City’s UEFA Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

Chelsea’s stars are also on the agenda. The likes of Marcos Alonso (£5.6m) and Timo Werner (£8.7m) certainly have explosive potential but can they secure the minutes needed to deliver?

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur face a Euro-distracted Leicester City, a side they have often prevailed against. But can Antonio Conte’s wing-back system recapture the form needed to supply the likes of Harry Kane (£12.5m) and Son Heung-min (£11.0m)?

With Joe returning from holiday, he attempts a Spanish greeting to viewers and listeners with mixed results. Seb is buoyant with a current rank in the top 500 and Andy may well roll a transfer as he looks forward to Double Gameweek 36.

Elsewhere, there are all the usual features including the latest moves of the show’s community team and our trio’s captaincy plans.

    All good to roll?

    Feel like 2FTs for BB36 will be worth it

    Foster
    TAA | Matip | Cancelo | James
    Salah | Sterling | Mount | Saka
    Werner | Nketiah

    Schmeichel | B.Davies | Pukki | KDH +0.6m

    No City, just Salah from Pool... Was really hoping for dgw37 for City.

    FH 36 here I come.

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Yeah, likely makes sense.

      1. Rassi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah. Also means I am stuck with Weghorst to the end. 😀

    2. Cammick

      2 months, 11 days ago

      City confirmed for 36?

      1. SonnyPikey
          2 months, 11 days ago

          more or less

        • AC/DC AFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Seems so.

          The clubs know.

      Son to KDB is a no brainer, but would you get Watkins for Toney? He could be better shout than Coutinho in dgws.

      1. Dreaming of glory
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yea villas fixtures are good enough for that move with the double tones doesn't have

      2. Rassi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I like Watkins for 35-37.

        (Disagree about Son --> KDB being a no-brainer)

      3. Mr Ozil
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Why is Son > KDB a no brainer?

        Son is assured of starting while Pep might rotate a bit with the CL game next midweek.
        Yes title race is on, but City can rotate a bit

      4. CRAZY TRAIN
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Watkins is a better pick over Coutinho imo based on recent form, but I'm not sure I'd want him over Toney

    4. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      It will be a challenge to afford prime Man City and a strong bench if you want to BB36.

      Might be better to FH36 and BB37.

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Oh yeah. I hadn’t thought of it that way. Thanks. Xx

        Unless you go boring and try to stay rotation-proof and go triple City defence. Which I wildcarded into this week with just wonderful results so far :eyeroll 😀

    5. Bavarian
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      FH now anyone instead of GW36?

    6. JELLYFISH
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Anyone able to advise on whether Liverpool gw37 fixture is likely to be confirmed anytime soon?

        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I'd imagine it will get announced at the same time City Wolves is (which I assume is soon)

      2. SonnyPikey
          2 months, 11 days ago

          No need to panic. 37 is the only week it can go in.

          1. JELLYFISH
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            Thanks for the reassurance lance corporal Jones.

            1. SonnyPikey
                2 months, 11 days ago

                lol

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

              Is it an additional double or just moving from 36 to 37?

              1. SonnyPikey
                  2 months, 11 days ago

                  it was scheduled for 37 but pool have city in cup so goes midweek

                  1. Rupert The Horse
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years

                  It's gonna move from the weekend to midweek. So still a single gw

                  1. Rupert The Horse
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 11 days ago

                    Ah gotcha, that makes sense.

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

            Is Ederson a waste of a City spot? Thinking Ramsdale > Ederson might be preferable to White > Laporte for me budget-wise to allow for a midfield upgrade in 36.

            1. SonnyPikey
                2 months, 11 days ago

                no cos he's nailed

                • 7 Years
                2 months, 11 days ago

                Not a waste.

                Brought him in along with Laporte on my WC, then Watford scored...

                Waste of space.

                1. SonnyPikey
                    2 months, 11 days ago

                    18 clean sheets says otherwise

                  Thoughts on Sterling (c) and saving FT followed by Sterling to KDB before DGW36?

                  • 1 Year
                  2 months, 11 days ago

                  I can get to KDB if I sell Son or go for Foden and also Cancelo?

                  1. Bavarian
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 11 days ago

                    Have Laporte and Cancelo and will bring Foden myself

                4. WOL vs MCI confirmed for 36

                  Here we go, official confirmation of what we were expecting:



                  Wolves vs Man City moves into GW36


                  Wolves - che + MCI
                  Man City - NEW + Wolves

                  And Southampton vs Liverpool moves back into GW37, this time during the midweek.

                    2 months, 11 days ago

                    Disaster outcome for me who was planning to BB36 and FH37!

                    1. The Polymath

                      2 months, 10 days ago

                      I'm happy, fits in with my BB36 and FH37

                  3. Mr. O'Connell hates DG…
                    • 10 Years
                    2 months, 11 days ago

                    Disappointed, not surprised. City GW37 looked ideal for the FH.

                    Ah well, can't wait to be heavily punished for the Sterling > KDB transfer I'm going to have to make after he blanks again this weekend.

                    Someone saying it was originally in 37 and got moved to 36, hence the delay

                    nice, i now have 11 doublers for 36 and can roll a ft for 37 🙂

                  2 months, 11 days ago

                  Assuming Liverpool Soton fix is placed in GW37 I am leaning towards reverting my FH to GW36 to contain hits for City cover

                      Would you do Havertz to Foden for 36? Already have Mount and although Chelsea DGW is nice, maybe they rotate for Leeds given FA Cup final is shortly after

                        Yes I would

                        On the fence.

                        Foden hasn't been an amazing pick this year, and you can't guarantee he definitely plays both.

                        Chelsea have two very good fixtures after GW36: LEI+WAT.

                        I come from angle where I also have Maddison, and debating whether moving to likes of Saka/Coutinho (less sold on latter) is worth it instead of Havertz - although could do all for a -4.

                        I would do Mount > Foden.

                      Too much choice for GW36 🙁 :

                      A) Son + Pukki / Dennis
                      B) Kane + Dewsbury-Hall
                      C) KDB + Sargent
                      D) Sterling + Dennis / Pukki
                      E) Mahr / Fode / Bern / Gund + Richarlison
                      F) Jesus + Maddison / Coutinho / Raphinha / Kulu / Sarr
