Mark Sutherns’ FPL Gameweek 38 preview and transfer plans

The one and only Mark Sutherns is back to survey the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) landscape in our latest exclusive video for Premium Members of Fantasy Football Scout.

Mark is joined by Luke Williams to look ahead to the final Gameweek of the season.

“Mild panic” is setting in as injuries and rotation risks threaten to derail what is a juicy-looking Gameweek 38, with the pair discussing the merits of taking hits on the final weekend.

The Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) to Son Heung-min (£11.2m) move also dominates discussion as Luke and Mark discuss their own team, captaincy and transfer plans for Gameweek 38.

The pair recorded their video earlier on Friday and you can watch it via the embedded player below.

    Who is on corners for WHU?

    1. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Bowen and Cresswell normally

  2. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    How likely is Schar to play?

    1. Royal5
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Also wondering this. Considering a swap for Sess

  3. Royal5
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Ah a part of me really wants to go KDB cap as most will be on Son

  4. Garth Marenghi
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    FH team:

    Raya (3.9)
    Robertson, James, Cancelo (Amartey, Tsimikas)
    Mount, KDB, Son, Luis Diaz, Kulu
    Welbeck, Vardy (Gelhardt)

    A) good to go
    B) could be better

    1. Royal5
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      You choose Kulu in a FH team? Interesting. Seen people selling for a hit for the likes of Mount, Barnes and Bowen

      1. Garth Marenghi
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        I already had him, but was thinking since he was rested last week. Or is he injured? Bowen is a good shout.

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Would want at least someone assured of minutes on your bench

      1. Garth Marenghi
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        True, might downgrade James.

    3. Geriatric Unathletic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      FH. You NEED a stronger bench. Rotation central possible on final week. James, Vardy possibly even Mount.

  5. Jones Kusi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Would you? 17 points ahead in ML.
    Dias, Ings > James, Toney (-4 and bench Richarlison or Martinelli)

    1. Garth Marenghi
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Maybe just Ings to Toney

      1. Jones Kusi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        You would rather go Toney before James?

        1. Garth Marenghi
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          I think Toney has the bigger upside. James has a big upside too, but maybe rested?

          1. Freshy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            What position was James playing vs LEI?
            Only saw portions but seemed more central.
            The Alonso goal was classic James though

            1. Garth Marenghi
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              I think rwb, and he most likely plays. I think. I basically don't trust James/Tuchel, but like the scoring potential.

  6. Pointless
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Werner out to:
    A) Vardy
    B) Lukaku
    C) Kane
    ?

    1. Garth Marenghi
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      A, if you have Son

  7. _Ninja_
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Best move here? Salah/Mateta to

    A. Eriksen/Kane
    B. Mane/Toney
    C. Diaz/Vardy

    Dubravka
    James TAA Laporte
    Salah Son Saka Mount Coutinho
    Jesus Nketiah

    Schmeichel Mateta KWP Doherty

    1. Garth Marenghi

    2. Royal5
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Not sure why everyone is on Toney. 1 goal in the last 8. I know it's Leeds though. I would be tempted by C

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Toney seems to like playing teams in the relegation zone... 17 pts v Norwich, 12 v Burnley

        1. Royal5
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Leeds can't afford to lose. Maybe they park the bus?

          1. _Ninja_
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Possibly, I'm leaning C from the above. Cheers

          2. POTATO
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            If they had a bus.

          3. No Kane No Gain
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            If Leeds fall behind, they have to go for it. Toney could be gold

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      I like C

    4. billydesmond

  8. POTATO
    • 2 Years

    1FT and £0, Only three decision left:

    i) Bench Pope(NEW) or Ramsdale(EVE)
    ii) Salah* > KdB Bowen Mane Maddison?
    iii) Bench a defender or mid?

    Pope Ramsdale
    TAA Cancelo Alonso Rüdiger Laporte
    Salah* Son Mount Saka Kulusevski
    Nketiah (Broja Dennis*)

    1. billydesmond

      Havertz - keep or sell?
      Schmeichel going to play?
      Weghorst -> Toney/Antonio/Nketiah ?

      1. billydesmond
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

      TAA-Matip-James-Cancelo-Davies
      Salah-Son-Mount
      Jesus-Pukki

      (Foster, Ramsey, KDH, Dennis)

      Which pair score more

      A. Maddison + Kane
      B. Diaz + Vardy
      C. Mane + Toney
      D. KDB+Toney
      D. Sterling + Maddison

      6 pts off in ML and our defences are basically the same but apart from Son our front 8 are completely different.

      Thanks guys.

          Already buzzing for next season. Definitely going to crush everyone here. Top 1k no doubt. Probably top 100.

          Currently sitting around 250k but next season will be different…

          1. RedRo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Load up on Utd assets from the start. With Atkinson, Dean and Moss all retiring they should be massively underpriced on how they performed next season vs how they’ll perform next season.

        3. DannyDrinkVodka
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          A) Kane and Mount (block rival)
          B) Son and Barnes

            A) Laporte v AVL
            B) Odegaard v EVE

            Both for a -4
            A) Salah & Richarlison out for
            Diaz & Kane
            B) Salah & Davies out for
            Son & R James ( hope richarlison starts, or pukki on bench if needed)
            C) just salah to son no hit.

            Hi Guys, Need help (b*ggered my counting up previous) 20 points ahead in ML. Need to get Son in. 0.7itb

            A) Coutinho, Jesus > Son, Fodder -4
            B) Coutinho, Rich, Zaha > Son, Kulu, Fodder -8 (would play 5-4-1)
            C) Coutinho, TAA > Son, Sess/Emerson Royal - 4
            D) other -8?

              You will want to start Zaha vs utd.
              Utd are shocking.
              Id be tempted by a, just cause no certainty who will feature for city.

                If I did do A the Fodder would be Geldhart who could quite frankly do decent with Leeds needing a win? ( Incase other players get rotated too)

                    Thanks man. Unless we pick Origi instead and hope for pure madness last minute pool goals lmao

                      Origi could be a shout. He’s bound to come on a seal the title 😀

                        Ha yeah!! The only issue that gives me the fear is taking out Jesus if he 100% plays. City’s goal record at home is ridiculous.

              Definitely won’t play tomorrow mate. There’s nothing concrete but general consensus is that he probably doesn’t start

                I've heard its 100%, no mins for him tomorrow.

              Doubt it but think he may want to for Golden Boot. Still, CL Final is more important than that to him.

                Too risky at the moment to gamble for Sunday. 100000% won’t start tomorrow

                Utd or Madrid

                  Strong rumours staying at PSG. Hope not.

                  United? Such silliness.

                  F all chance of him going to Utd with no Champions League.

                  Mbappe wouldn’t join United if they had champions league and they offered him a million a day.

                    Ronaldo’s his hero - there’s pictures of him as a teenager in his room with Ronaldo posters on his walls - google if you don’t believe me

                  Think he’s already there, mate.

                Psg player coach/sporting director role.

                Games gone with that nonsense.

                Central Coast Mariners have been linked with him.

            6. Strudders

              Ramsdale
              TAA, Collins, Cancelo, Robertson
              Son (C), Kulusevski, KDB, Trossard
              Kane, Mateta

              Sa, Greenwood, McArthur, Kelly

              With 1FT and £1.9, is it a no-brainer to do Trossard -> Mount?

            7. Pegboy
              • 11 Years

              A) Kane + Barnes/Saka
              B) Mane + Toney
              C) Diaz + Vardy

              Will probably captain Son. I'm both chasing and leading, so a bit irrelevant.

              You think Havertz will start on Sunday? Was gonna get rid but would rather use the transfer else where. I heard Lukaku and Pulisic werent good in last game so hoping Havertz comes straight back in.
