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.

    Really could use your help here - 20 pt ML lead on the line

    Ramsdale (Pickford)
    Robertson Cancelo Matip James (Laporte)
    Son KDB Saka Jota Coutinho
    Richarlison (Nketiah) (Mateta)

    My ML opponent has Mount and Laporte

    A. Coutinho to Mount, Rich to Toney for -4; (Play Laporte, Bench Jota)
    B. Rich to Vardy, Cout to 4.5, (Play Laporte)
    C. Cout to Mount, Rich to Toney (Bench Laporte)

    1. Connor's Calling
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Cover Mount

    2. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Just block mount and play laporte

  3. lilmessipran
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Best option here for 38-

    A Play Davies
    B Play Richa
    C Toney (-4)

    1. European Bob

    There’s nearly always some obscure player that hauls in the final week, wonder who it will be this season

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

      I’ll guess Gelhardt. It’s usually whoever I’ve got 1st on the bench. Maddison’s 25 points this GE

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

        *GW

        1. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Gelhardt of Riviera an excellent choice.

      2. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        You benched Maddison?…

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

          Yeah, I was on FH - it was him or KDB

          1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Ouch!

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

        Laporte brace and CS on my bench incoming.

    2. DavidBW
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Pulisic is my guess.

      1. Connor's Calling
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        This

    3. Hairy Potter
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Pepe

      1. L S P
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        This would really be something

      2. noissimbus
          1 month, 11 days ago

          He'd have to fight Arteta to get off the bench first.

      3. NorCal Villan
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Jonjo Shelvey

      4. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        I’m disgusted I’m not seeing Ronaldo’s name once this week in teams, sort it out lads

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

          This lot hate Utd

          1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            So do I, and I support them

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

              Lol

        2. noissimbus
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Could be one the major differentials this GW. Or not.. one could dream.

        3. Bagheri Arce
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Chasing a 13pt ML gap.

          Best differential captain:

          A) Mane / Jota / Diaz
          B) Sterling /Foden / Jesus
          C) Toney
          D) Vardy
          E) Lukaku

          Ignoring Mount, Son, Maddiaon completely as rival owns them

          Thanks and good luck to everyone

          1. The Knights Template
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            A. Mane

          2. Connor's Calling
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            D

            Or double bluff and go Son

          3. pricycle
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Mane

            1. pricycle
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              They will definitely captain son so you could still consider MADDISON or MOUNT

              1. Connor's Calling
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 12 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Think Mount worth considering

              2. Bagheri Arce
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years

                Thanks guys

                Yes I could go these guys or even KdB but his regular team is so we'll set up that I need a hail Mary play

                My gut was saying Mane and that seems to be my best bet

            Appreciate some help

            Ramsdale
            TAA, cancelo, Alonso, schar
            Salah, mount, Maddison, son, saka
            Nketiah
            Subs dubravka, Dias, mateta, broja

            Thinking Dias to James
            Or Salah out kdb or mane and/or above?
            Ramsdale or dubravka?

            Anything I missed? (Aware schar might not play) Salah out for Kane for a hit?

              A) Toney

              B) Pukki + 4 points…

              I'm stumped, please help pick 3 to start GW38:

              A- Barnes (sou)
              B- Havertz (wat)
              C- Davies (NOR)
              D- Richarlison (ars)
              E- Zaha (manu)

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

                ACE

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

                I'd go with A, B, E I think.

                I have Havertz also and I'm just hoping he starts.

            4. Strudders
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              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 transfer out Trossard for Mount?

              1. Fer Fuch's Ake
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Yes Mount or Foden if you can stretch to 7.9

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

                Yes. Mount

              • 2 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              Which 2 players I should bench form:

              Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Cancelo, Laporte, Alonso
              Son, De Bruyne, Mount, Saka
              Richarlison, Toney, Nketiah

              Thank you!

                • 8 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Probably Richa and Toney. Tough though. Bench boost is the worst

                • 3 Years

                Richi and Nket

                Rich and Laporte

            6. pricycle
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              Bring in Vardy/Barnes for -4 or play Pukki?

            7. Ribus
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              A) Coutinho -> KdB
              B) Coutinho -> KdB & Zaha -> Luis Diaz (-4)

              1. pricycle

                  I think I've just answered my own question above

                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 11 days ago

                    That's so boring though

                      🙂
                      Yes, not a fan of making hits last gw as well.
                      But both of out hits are tempting though..

                      1. Ribus
                        • 8 Years
                        1 month, 11 days ago

                        *our hits

                        1. pricycle
                          • 8 Years
                          1 month, 11 days ago

                          I do think Zaha > Pukki so would defo play him Vs United. It is boring though

                          1. Ribus
                            • 8 Years
                            1 month, 11 days ago

                            Right. Pukki 2pointer incoming. Vardy could be funny.
                            Do it. Much for fun for the last gw going with Vardy over Pukki

                A.
                Zaha will probably get a peno against that shocking Utd defence

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

                  Atkinson absolutely hates Utd - he’ll definitely give multiple pens. I would NOT be losing Zaha

                    I pretty much just agree with all the predicted lineups that’s it’s likely to be Lukaku with Pulisic and Mount behind. We could all be wrong of course

                      • 12 Years
                      1 month, 11 days ago

                      The predicted lineups I've seen elsewhere have Havertz

                    2. Kay317

                      Oh right. I havent seen any predicted line up yet. The one on here is still for the previous game.

                        1 month, 11 days ago

                        I predict Havertz will be just awful.

                I’m hopeful off the bench last game and would fit into the haven’t played much lately bracket.

                I have and wondering whether to ship to Foden

                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  Trouble is with shipping for Foden is that hes also not guaranteed to play.

              Best Salah replacement if chasing? Already have Son...

              A KDB
              B Maddison
              C Mount
              D Diaz

                1 month, 11 days ago

                Depends who your rivals have I guess. But id probably go for KDB.

                A or C depending on your situ

                The answer is Mane

            10. v3n0m
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 11 days ago

              A) Salah -> Son
              B) Haverz -> Mount

              If A), start Haverz or Nketiah?

              1. Man Chest Hair United
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Be nice to know if havertz starts he could easily haul bs Watford

              Anyone else worried vardy may not start Sunday?

              Back to back starts for him in the last 2

                1 month, 11 days ago

                Lots of rest to come - if he had played full 90 v Chelsea would have been concerned but pretty positive about him starting v Southampton

                1 month, 11 days ago

                a little bit worried yeah, but i'll play him anyway as its silly to sell him for such a juicy fixture

              Reece James and Diaz

              or

              Kane and Nketiah?

              1. Kay317

                A

              I’m 30K (dropped from 21K last week) and would be nice to get top 20K.

              Dubravka
              TAA James Laporte Cancelo
              Saka KDB Son (c?) Maddison Kulusevski
              Richarlison

              Pickford Ings Shar Ferguson

              1.1m ITB

              1. Ings > Toney / Wilson
              2. Laporte + Ings > Sessegnon + Vardy (c?) -4

              Could even -8 and do all three moves

              Ings + Laporte + Richarlison > Toney + Vardy + Sessegnon

              Is my FT move of Ings > Toney enough to get a top 20K finish?

              1. Kay317
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Tough one. If you take hits you're being counter productive. So ideally just the one move but can't see Toney being your hero!
                Option 2 could well pay off big time so I think I'd go for that.
                As for captain choice, not sure who i'd go for between Vardy, Son and Kdb..all have great potential but I guess Vardy is the differential pick.

                wouldnt transfer Laporte out imo,not when they have Stones and Walker back

            14. putana
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              too risky to bring in alonso, or nailed to start?

              1. Kay317
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                He's not nailed to start by any means but if he plays he could do very well. If it's not for a hit and you have no other issues with decent bench cover then go for it.

                • 6 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Too risky now imo (Chelsea fan)

                1. putana
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  it's his last game for chelsea right? wouldnt it mean better chance of starting?

                Kenedy could play as its a meaningless game against crap opposition

            15. The Royal Robin
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              KDB or Kane (C)?

                • 8 Years

                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 11 days ago

              • 10 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              Best TC captain if chasing?

              a. KdB
              b. Mount
              c. Vardy

              ?

                • 8 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Mount I think

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                a), City will be playing at 100% commitment to get the win, the other 2 will just be having a fun Sunday kickabout in front of their fans

                1. Pad Randa (The OG)
                  • 10 Years

                  Yeah, I'm on him now. Wanted to get a few more data points, but seems the most sensible.

              A) Alonso, Foden, Vardy
              B) Sessegnon, KDB, Toney

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                B for me

              2. Scholes Out For Summer
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years

                B

              Mount or Bowen.. go!

              1. Scholes Out For Summer
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Bowen could be big

              2. FCSB
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Both have great potential. Mount if holding, Bowen if chasing

                • 1 Year
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Bowen, lower ownership

              4. HurriKane
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Mount

              Do we think Maddison starts on Sunday?

              1. Scholes Out For Summer

                • 8 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                probably

            20. HurriKane
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              If we get early team news that Reece James starts against Watford would you captain him over Son?

              Chasing 15 points in ML and im very sure rival will cap Son

              (Other captiency options for me include Mane Toney and Mount)

              1. Eastman

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                15 points could be gained from the rest of your team unless too similar. If so maybe as you have to try something

                definitely, but we basically havent got any team news before deadline like ever this season so yeah
