Scoutcast: Best players for a strong end to the FPL season

Joe and Andy offer advice to Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers as they prepare for Double Gameweek 37.

Another Double Gameweek gets underway this weekend. Could this be a chance for FPL managers to steal a march on their rivals with some big points hauls?

Everton, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace assets look the pick of the bunch, according to our Scoutcast duo. With fixtures and form on their side, many of their assets are also low owned, making them ideal recruits for an end-of-season flourish.

In this show, Joe and Andy showcase an ideal Gameweek 37 Free Hit side and the statistics used from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area to back up their selection.

They also look ahead to Gameweek 38, which is often awash with goals as home teams in particular look to give their fans something to smile about as the campaign draws to a close. Could this prove to be more lucrative for those with a Free Hit chip left? To help managers, Joe mocks up an ideal FPL draft for this final set of matches.

Andy brings all the information together with his ‘11th hour Eleven’, featuring the best differentials for those looking to dazzle their rivals and shoot up their mini-leagues.

Meanwhile, Erling Haaland’s imminent transfer to Manchester City looks set to shake up FPL next season, especially as managers may at last have a long-term premium striker to select. But how will his likely hefty price tag fit into a strong 15? In a ‘jumpers for goalposts’ chat, Andy and Joe recall some of the great budget FPL players of yesteryear that have helped shoehorn in such expensive players in the past. Yes, Nicky Shorey, we are talking about you.

Elsewhere, there are all the usual features, including quick-fire questions and our duo’s captaincy and transfer plans.

This latest episode was streamed during Liverpool’s victory over Aston Villa during Gameweek 36 and following the announcement of Jurgen Klopp’s shock team selection.

      I would want Son in there

      1. Arn De Gothia
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        Hes fourth mf?

    2. DannyDrinkVodka

      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Nketiah seems unnecessary, I would maybe consider Gordon instead?

      1. OptimusBlack

        This

      Double Villa is a little risky - tho’ obvs attacking returns could be had. Maybe Digne —> Clyne or Andersen (sp?).

      Downgrade Nketiah to a non-player and get Saka or Trossard?

      1. BECKS TO THE FUTURE

        And probably Ings depending if we hear anything on Watkins. I had both for what it’s worth.

      Get Son IMO. Have Nketiah on the bench for an inevitable premium no show.

      Am I the only one who sees Son in there already...?

      1. TimoTime
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        No, he's there

      2. Arn De Gothia

        12 days, 13 hours ago

        O/

        Yeah get Son

      Looks great, Son’s chasing for the Golden Boot with a plum of fixture though. I’d find a way to get him. I’m not massively fussed on the Zaha pick but I get it - and I can’t think of a better alternative in that price bracket

        • 8 Years

        Hes right there lol

      Three people saying no Son in there, definitely on a wind up ffs hahaha

      Haha.cheers guys.yeh son is involved.x

        Haha!
        But, have you considered trying to get Son in there somehow?

        (One of the most random mini-threads I've seen in a while!)

    9. Whats the Mata?

      I'd have Salah in there for sure alongside Son. He's had his rest now - very risky to go without Salah.

    Foden to Zaha for a -4 worth it for the final two game weeks? (3 for Zaha)

    1. 1-1 at Newcastle
      • 8 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Im doing it for free. I dont know whether a -4 is worth it. Not much time to pay it back

  4. Dark Side Of The Loon!

    Ok to BB?

    Pickford Krul
    TAA Cancelo Matip White Davies
    Salah Son Saka Zaha Gordon
    Kane Weghorst Gelhardt

    Thanks a lot!

    1. 1-1 at Newcastle

      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Yeah not exactly a better week left to do it

    Ramsdale*
    Trent Cancelo Cash
    Salah Son Kulu Saka Barnes*
    Nketia Richarlison
    Sanchez Dalot Amartey Dennis

    Really want Zaha,
    only way looks like
    Barnes + Ramsdale > Zaha + Guaita

    Worth it?
    I seem to have faith in Vieras palace for this double
