Learning from ‘The Great and The Good’ FPL managers ahead of Gameweek 35

Fantasy Football Scout community writer Greyhead continues with his series of articles analysing the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) transfers and strategies of some noted Fantasy managers, from serial top 10k finishers to well-known faces.

The Great and The Good this year are the Scouts Joe LepperNeale RiggGeoff Dance, and Tom Freeman, FPL Wire’s Zophar, from the Hall of Fame Fabio BorgesFPLMatthewYavuz Kabuk and Tom Stephenson, Blackbox’s Az and Mark Sutherns, FPL “celebrities” LTFPL AndyMagnus Carlsen and FPL General plus last year’s mini-league winner Les Caldwell.


“I’m blue

Da ba dee da ba di”

In a season where there have so many pivotal 50/50 calls, this time it was your choice of Reece James (£6.4m) versus Marcus Alonso (£5.6m) which determined whether you were left feeling blue.

Prior to the Gameweek, everyone was actually piling in on the blues. Chelsea and Manchester City’s favourable fixtures caused some to Free Hit, while there was a cacophony of Wildcards as the late rank charges began.

Yet pretty much everyone forgot about Gabriel Jesus (£8.5m), who provided divine returns for those who did in fact take a leap of faith on the City striker.

OVERALL PERFORMANCE

Neale Rigg was talk of the toon with an impressive 83 fuelled by a Wildcard which contained Alonso and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) and, crucially, it also saw him keep faith in Bukayo Saka (£6.8m).

FPL Matthew was not too far behind with his overhaul giving him 81 points, even though he captained Reece James. Both managers had gone with a five-man defence and the final few weeks may yet prove the saying that the best form of attack is defence.

The Free Hitting double act of Az and Mark had less success. Mr Sutherns must have walked under ladder and kicked a few black cats as his bad luck continued with his decision to move out Saka, Nick Pope (£5.4m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.3m) proving costly, although his chip play did at least gain him a green arrow.

Az was the least fortunate and his red arrow gives an opening to Fabio Borges, who is now nine points behind. It could yet come down to the battle of the Bench Boost as both have this one chip remaining. Could Hee-Chan Hwang (£5.4m) be an unlikely hero for Az? Probably not.

As for the captains this week, it was an open field with a wide variety of picks. We even saw a lesser spotted Timo Werner (£8.7m) armband from Joe but the best of the bunch was Geoff Dance, who saw something twinkle in the eye of Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.2m).

WILDCARDS

The late Wildcard wagons pulled into FPL town with five of them making their move:

Magnus Carlsen

The Grandmaster caused a stir with his decision to say no to Mo and keep faith with Bruno Fernandes. He also waved goodbye to his Spurs and, to add to the controversy, went without any City players.

  • IN – Schmeichel, Mykolenko, Cash, Alonso, Fernandes, Jota, Coutinho, Havertz, Mount, Pukki, Iheanacho, Nketiah
  • OUT – Ramsdale, Coady, Doherty, Livramento, Saka, Martinelli, Cornet, Barnes, Son, Kane, Antonio, Calvert-Lewin
FPL Matthew

Hold the line! Matthew has gone big, big and bigger at the back with five premium defenders. It’s cheap and cheerful up front and good to see he has joined the Teemu Pukki (£6.0m) party. The lack of much Aston Villa, Everton and Leicester coverage suggests he is planning his Free Hit for Gameweek 37.

  • IN – Schmeichel, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Alonso, James, Mount, Kulusevski, Foden, Pukki, Nketiah, Dennis
  • OUT – De Gea, Saiss, Tarkowski, Livramento, White, Gilmour, Raphinha, Fernandes, Kane, Antonio, Weghorst
Neale Rigg

A cracking start for the Scout chief with his Wildcard. Surprisingly, he is the only one to go with Kevin De Bruyne (KDB), and he clearly likes his players with three-letter acronyms as he also brought in Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (£4.4m, KDH).

Joel Matip (£5.1m) is a canny pick who won’t get the headlines but has amassed a very impressive 41 points over the last six weeks.

  • IN – Schmeichel, Foster, Laporte, Matip, Cancelo, Alonso, De Bruyne, Salah, Mount, Dewsbury-Hall, Pukki, Mateta, Nketiah
  • OUT – Sanchez, Ramsdale, Doherty, Digne, White, Schar, MacAllister, Son, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Ronaldo, Kane, Weghorst
Tom Freeman

Maybe variance is a thing, as Tom suffered more bad luck: his Raheem Sterling (£10.5m) pick looked good on paper but bad on the pitch and it was made worse by his decision to kick out James Ward-Prowse (£6.4m) as part of the reshuffle.

I still fancy a late surge from the king of the differentials as a midfield of Mason Mount (£7.7m), Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) and Kai Havertz (£7.9m) will have better days.

  • IN – Schmeichel, Foster, Emerson Royal, Laporte, Cancelo, James, Havertz, Mount, Sterling, Dewsbury-Hall, Salah, Nketiah, Pukki, Rodriguez
  • OUT – Sanchez, Ramsdale, Doherty, Kilman, Rudiger, Regulion, Sancho, Fernandes, Ward-Prowse, Martinelli, Luiz, Kane, Weghorst, Broja
Zophar

Zophar decided to avoid some of the potential Pep roulette by going with Ederson (£6.1m), as the most secure of the City defensive starters.

His decision to bring in Son Heung-min (£11.0m) while others decided to sell catches the attention, and his call to Bench Boost last week means he could spend little on the benchwarmers of Martin Kelly (£3.8m) and Sam Greenwood (£4.6m) and focus his investment on the first XI.

  • IN – Ederson, Steele, Robertson, Kelly, Son, Mount, Havertz, Pukki, Greenwood, Nketiah
  • OUT – De Gea, Ramsdale, Burn, Schar, Kulusevski, Martinelli, Sancho, Kane, Broja, Weghorst

TRANSFERS

This is a summary of the transfers for this week:

  • Az – Free Hit
  • LTFPL Andy – Havertz, Alonso (Fernandes, Tierney)
  • Fabio Borges – Alonso, Pukki (Coady, Lacazette)
  • Joe Lepper – Werner (Adams)
  • Geoff Dance – Pukki (Broja)
  • FPL General – Mount (Coutinho)
  • Les Caldwell – James, Salah (Schar, Fernandes)
  • Magnus Carlsen – Wildcard
  • Mark Sutherns – Free Hit
  • FPL Matthew – Wildcard
  • Neale Rigg – Wildcard
  • Tom Freeman – Wildcard
  • Tom Stephenson – Dobbin, Mount, Robertson (Wood, Raphinha, Rudiger)
  • Yavuz Kabuk – Alonso, Pukki, Havertz, Cancelo (Doherty, Lacazette, Raphinha, Rudiger)
  • Zophar – Wildcard

While the chips were flying, the remaining members of The Great and The Good had to be aggressive to keep up, leading to hits aplenty – which sounds like a really bad Bond villain.

Yavuz went on the attack with a minus twelve and at least Alonso and Havertz gave him immediate returns as he pushes for the boom or bust of a 10,000 finish; a rumour passed me that he would quit if he doesn’t achieve this goal.

Tom Stephenson was uncharacteristically offensive but again his minus eight was rewarded by Andy Robertson’s double-digit returns – great Scot!

TEMPLATE

The template for The Great and The Good is as follows, with the numbers in brackets showing how many teams in which they appear:

  • Foster (7), Schmeichel (6)
  • Alexander-Arnold (14), Cancelo (12), James (9), Alonso (7), Robertson (7)
  • Salah (13), Saka (10), Mount (9), Havertz (7), Kulusevski (7)
  • Pukki (8), Nketiah (7), Kane (4)

As you expect, with the quintet of Wildcards the template is shaken to its core with changes across all positions as Kasper Schmeichel, Alonso, Mason Mount, Havertz, Pukki and Edward Nketiah (£5.5m) all come into the squad.

Harry Kane’s (£12.5m) appeal appears to be on the wane across this group of managers and this may yet have an impact on the final standings, as he could yet spark against a European fatigued Leicester for those willing to captain.

SEASON STATS

It’s worth having a quick glance at the season stats, with Yavuz leading the way in hits, Zophar still cash-rich and the captaincy calls proving decisive as Az and Fabio battle it out at the top on 676 points.

CONCLUSION

As mentioned right at the start, the swings caused by some crucial 50/50 calls have been crucial this season: we’ve had Havertz vs Salah, Antonio vs Bowen and even Bruno vs Ronaldo.

This weekend gives us another opportunity to spin the wheel with the captaincy call wide open, so while many have already started to count their predicted points for Gameweek 36, I would suggest spending a little more time on the armband choice for this weekend to make sure you are swinging whilst you’re winning.

Anyway, that’s all from me for now – and remember, don’t have nightmares.

      Re-post simplified

      Anyone with FH and BB left doing anything other than:

      BB36
      FH37

      ?

      1. smash
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Yes, I'm doing the opposite FH36/BB37

        1. WATERMELONS
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Interesting been thinking about this. What is your thinking and what is your team?

          1. smash
            • 12 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Basically I'm chasing in my mini league, just feel I can make a better FH team in 36 rather than 37 bigger pool of players that double to pick from, think I've already got 8 that double in 36?but need to go a bit left field so will be punting tbh

      2. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        BB 36

        May FH38 instead

        Don't see a FH for Villa, Palace and Everton as worth it

        1. WATERMELONS
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I agree, and dont see it as particularly great for a BB either.

          I like FH 38. Especially if chasing in ML.

          So if I dont FH in 37 I need to focus on the double doublers right with my upcoming transfers?

          1. Biggsy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Maybe. Everton are shocking away and they have double away games in 36 so wouldn't focus on them yet. Villa maybe with Norwich this week. But not exactly setting the world alight right now

      3. Our Man Charlie
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        yes FH38 BB36 team is quite well set up to cover the double doubles

    7. tommo1989
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Need a 4.3m defender in place of Livramento. Any thoughts? I’m thinking Fofana as he’s got two doubles coming up but I know there’s a risk he won’t play all 4 games.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        FOFANA is a decent option. Probably more likely to play than not, but no guarantees. TAVARES also more likely to play than not, but if he has more stinkers could be benched again. SESSENGON is an option given Regulion injury, but not sure how long injury is (poor DGW though).

        1. tommo1989
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Thank you

        2. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I don't think Fofana will play. He is a key member of the team and Ramadan doesn't finish until after Sunday, so he will still be fasting. He will play in the vital match in Rome next Thursday.

      2. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I'm in the same boat with Livra, except I've got 4.2 to spend. Fofana's a good call. Here's what I'm looking at for 4.2. I obviously need to monitor availability for BB36

        Cedric doubles
        Roerslev v Sou
        Amartey - doubles, but has he lost his place?
        Dalot v BHA
        Veltman v Manu
        Ben Johnson v Nor

        Hope it helps a bit.

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Cedric now at even more danger due to Tomiyasu. Wouldn't go there.
          Roerslev... eh maybe?
          Amartey was never a starter before injuries. Backup, but may get game due to rotation.
          Dalot... again eh. Brghton in form again. AWB could technically play.
          Vetlman an okay option, not great fixture though.
          Ben Johnson could be okay there, but could be rotated & West Ham not keeping cleanies.

          1. Pep bites Kun
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Thanks for that Hazz. Happy with my team, but I'm on a slim budget for that last place for BB, due to the unfortunate Livramento season-ending injury.

            I like Brighton as a defensive unit. Vetlman could be the call. Decent cheap sub for the remaining fixtures. I'll take 2 for BB36, hopefully a bit more.

            Sorry for jumping on your post Tommo

        2. tommo1989
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I think Tomiyasu is back so he might take Cedric’s place

          1. Pep bites Kun
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            You could well be right. I'll keep a weather eye out. Thanks for the feedback

    8. Frank Koscielny
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Saka + Ramsey to Foden + Coutinho for -4?
      Or just Ramsey to one of them, if so which one?

    9. JY84
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Should I bring in Watkins or Dennis for Woods? Got the money for Watkins but wondering whether he is worth it or should I save the cash for week 36 to upgrade other areas of my squad

      1. No Kane No Gain
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I fully believe Watkins is the kind of player you have in your team to tick along nicely but expecting returns within a gameweek or 2 of buying him is risky and shouldn’t be expected.

        If you have other areas to look into I’d do that first.

    10. No Kane No Gain
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Play Pickford or Schmeichel?! Big decision lol

      Hey guys! Evening!
      1FT, 0.6itb. Sterling to Son and Captain? Or save FT? Also tempted with one of the Chelsea boys to Saka? On BB36, FH37.

      Foster
      TAA, Robbo, Cancelo, Laporte
      Salah, Sterling, Havertz, Mount
      Dennis, Nketiah
      (Schmeichel, Davies, Pukki, KDH)

      1. Aeu96197
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Havertz to Saka.

        I wouldn’t bring in Son unless you FH36

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I could move him to KDB in 36 (by doing Havertz >> Saka)

          1. Aeu96197
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Sounds like a couple of great moves

      2. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I think Sterling plays as on bench midweek so would keep. I would move on one of Chelsea mids to Saka as good fixture v West Ham with weakened defence and Arteta pretty much confirmed on penalties.

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          *And move Sterling to KDB in 36

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Aye. Seems logical. Just depends if I keep Havertz this week or not

    12. Henning
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Maddison and Schär out for Ramsey and Cancelo/ Vvd?

    13. Ronny Sandstone
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Is anyone stuck with Bruno? I'm thinking about switching to Sterling/anyone that I can punt on up to 12m, leading a mini league by some way so can enjoy taking a risk.

      1. OptimusBlack
        • 9 Years

        Sell Sell Sell

        1. Ronny Sandstone
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Yeah definitely has to go as he misses out in 37 anyway, just feel I want to get creative with my replacement

          Cheers.

      2. Botman and Robben
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        The only risk is keeping him.

        1. Ronny Sandstone
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Yeah this is the issue, still have a FH for 36 so that sorts that week out, guess it's an easy downgrade to 37 doublers though, last GW is a complete lottery anyway

          Cheers

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Get KDB (or Salah if by some miracle you don’t have). -4 of you have to

          You think KDB plays this week? thought he's playing through a slight niggle I read? Already have Salah, I could go Son/Zaha but always feel Sterling owes me so fancy the risk

          Cheers.

            I think he plays. But I’ve no insider knowledge. Just based on what I’ve read.

            But go with your gut. GL

              Yeah I believe going with gut makes the most sense, so many times I've been influenced by others on here etc and it's gone wrong (it's easier to accept when you balls up yourself too)

              Think KDB is a good pick, slightly too safe for my position
              ...he who dares etc

              Good luck

          It's between him and Smith Rowe but ESR is more on form and may keep his place.

        Is it weird that I'm considering playing Foster instead of Ramsdale this GW?

        1. BeWater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          I'm on WC and will have Foster and Schmeichel and will play Foster.

        2. Bobby Digital
          • 4 Years

          Good pick

        3. BeWater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Decent option this week.

        4. Union_Jacks
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I’m going for it.

          Salah early game 😛 and Newcastle in serious form, that game could be tight. But Pool and Salah obviously capable of doing very well still.

      5. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Which option sounds best?

        1. Keep FT, Sterling Havertz to KDB Maddison for DGW36

        2. Mount to Coutinho, Sterling Havertz to KDB Maddison -4 for DGW36

        3. Sterling to Son, Havertz to Foden for DGW36

      6. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Is Havertz >> Saka crazy or extremely smart? 🙂

        1. BeWater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I would do it.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Logical as Havertz will likely be benched

        Annoyingly picked James over Alonso last week on WC.

        Stupid to move James to Alonso this week??

        1. Botman and Robben
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Yes

        2. BeWater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          I'd keep James. He looked really good v United.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          It’s a blind gamble. I wouldn’t do it

          Very kneejerky, I captained Alonso this week and own James. James hit the post last night.

        5. Il Capitano

          keep James

          Not stupid, but if it works it's because you got lucky. James is the complete attacking player.

        8. Bubbles1985

          Unanimous!

        34 was a disaster.

        What’s the chances % of Havertz starting. Tuchel was hinting he may be needing a rest?

        1. BeWater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I think he'll be benched.

      13. BeWater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Play Mount or Foden?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Mount for me.

          But either way there’s no certainty on whether they start

          Salah Mount Son Saka XXX
          Nketiah (Greenwood, XXX)

          Is Havertz/Werner to De Bruyne/4.5 (-4) worth doing if it only leaves me with Veltman on the bench NB no BB left?
          Or just move Werner?
          Or stick?

            Basically the exact same situation as me, except Havertz to Coutinho for me.

            Pros of doing both is that the hit doesn't count as it saves a transfer in DGW37. Con is that it could be a waste as neither inspire me with confidence and it's mainly the Norwich fixture that is the draw. Part of me would rather have a SGW City or Pool asset.
