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.

    Dubravka
    Robbo Cancelo James Schar
    Son(c) Maddison Mount Zaha
    Kane Toney

    Ramsdale Mykolenko Coutinho Broja

    0.2 ITB, no FT

    Suggested changes? Anything worth a -4? Maybe bring in Sessegnon for example

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      looks like Schar is doubtful? Coutinho to Barnes? Myko to Jansson?

  2. Little Red Lacazette
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    How does this look?

    Sanchez
    Cancelo TAA Alonso Mykolenko
    KDB Son(C) Mount Saka
    Toney Richalison

    Pickford Ramsey Broja Schar

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Good enough for green I think

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Hopefully

    2. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Should be good enough. Bench not great though which ain’t good for rotation (Trent, Alonso, Richarlison, etc)

  3. Holmes

    https://twitter.com/ToniRuediger/status/1527567576963981313

    I think I'm going with Rudiger after reading this... Nice read!

    1. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Great pick this week.

  4. Boberella
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    22 points off top 1k OR

    Is this good enough to get there?

    Schmeichel (Foster)
    TAA Cancelo Alonso Matip (Collins)
    Son KDB Mount Bowen (KDH)
    Vardy Nketiah (Pukki)

    That would be team after doing:
    Salah + Dennis to Bowen + Vardy (-4)

    Who to Cap? Son safe, but to catch maybe need to go differential. I’ve buggered cap choice up last 2 weeks.

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Vardy, Mount, Trent are decent alternatives

      1. Boberella
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah, Mount is tempting after his rest this week. Vardy is always a fun cap pick.

  5. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Allison
    Robertson / Cancelo / Schar
    Mane (c) / Son / KDB / Saka / Zaha
    Toney / Nketiah

    Sanchez / KWP / Holgate / 4.4

    GTG? Not sure on Schar, could switch to Sess if I think he’s out.

    1. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Schar to Sess for free? No brainer if so. Even for a hit could be worth it if Schar not fit

      1. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Would be for a hit. May still go for it

        1. Boberella
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Can’t see KWP or Holgate getting much so prob worth it

  6. Sarri-ball
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Last day punt.

    Mcneil to Foden or ricarlison to vardy.

    McNeil/Vardy v Foden/ric basically

    1. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      McNeil + Vardy
      Richarlison on beach now, and no guarantee Foden starts.
      McNeil still playing for safety.

      1. Sarri-ball
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah way edging 2 be honest. I think foden does start but why risk.

        If said diaz woukd you change from mcneil/Vardy

    2. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Vardy, before he goes into aged care.

  7. Tambling5
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    How's this for free hit?
    Raya,
    Cancelo, Matip, Sessegnon
    KDB, Mane Foden Son Mount
    Vardy Toney
    Subs. Tsimikas Amartey fodder leaves nothing itb. Mane for Captain.

    1. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Leeds will score against Brentford so not sure about Raya on FH.
      Foden could be benched, but otherwise good.
      Personally I would go Bowen/Madds instead of Foden and upgrade Raya to Loris perhaps.

      1. Tambling5
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Thanks for that. Will ponder on!

  8. BlueMan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    A. Mount & Vardy
    Or
    B. Barnes & Kane

    1. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      A for me

      1. BlueMan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Ta.

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years

      A

      1. BlueMan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Ta.

  9. aleksios
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Chasing 17pts. Rich to Vardy and captain?
    Noone has him.

    1. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yep, don’t see why not.

    2. Cojones of Destiny
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      absolutely

  10. Little Red Lacazette
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Which team is getting Divock Origi's services next season?

    1. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      He’ll be great with regular starts.

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I believe so.

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Milan I think

    3. Cojones of Destiny
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      milano

  11. Cojones of Destiny
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    players in pick two :
    a. Barnes
    b. Diaz
    c. Mount
    d. Kulu
    c. Bowen

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years

      BC

    2. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B.C.

  12. Echoes
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Repost for a new crowd

    How will you use the last FT of the season on this XI? 0.0 itb

    Schmeichel
    Matip Robbo Laporte Cancelo
    Kulu Saka Havertz Mount Foden
    Kane

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      save and improve the rank

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Having slight suspicions that Havertz may not start. Any replacements who could outscore him?

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Barnes I guess or Wissa/Eriksen

          1. Echoes
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Good shouts. What about Bowen?

            1. Holmes
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Good pick. That game can also be high scoring.

              1. Echoes
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 15 days ago

                Pretty certain he starts, right?

                1. Holmes
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 15 days ago

                  yeah, no need for a rest this week.

  13. Pringle
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    What do you prefer?

    A. Havertz
    B. Diaz (-4)
    C. Maddison (-4)
    D. Toney (-4)

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      A

      1. Pringle
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Thanks. You think he will start?

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Not sure but getting rid before Watford is something I wouldnt do.

          Diaz is a fine pick if you are not sure of Havertz.

    2. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      A.

    3. KANTEnders
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I like B & C

  14. aleksios
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Would you do any of these for a hit?

    a) Ings to Toney
    b) Kulu to Mount.

    Current team:

    -Dubravka
    --Robbo--Cancelo--Laporte--Alonso
    --Son--Saka--Madds--Kulu
    --Weghorst--Vardy.

    --Sa--Gordon--Mings--Ings.

    Thanks.

    1. Holmes

      A

    2. Cojones of Destiny
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      If i had kulu i’d play him defo so A

    3. KANTEnders
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      A for sure

  15. JohannaAdams10
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Which defender to drop:

    A) Robertson
    B) Matip
    C) Cancelo
    D) James
    E) Alonso

    1. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B.

    2. Cojones of Destiny
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      yep B

    3. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Play all 5 if you can, or else B

    4. KANTEnders
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B

  16. Cojones of Destiny
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    in isolation
    a. Cash to James -4
    b. Ings to Toney -4
    c. no hit play cash/ings (who?)

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B but Ings is likely the guy to score if Villa are pissing on a Manchester City parade.

  17. Weeb Kakashi
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Is there a chance we get Team news before deadline?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yep.

      Is there a chance the FPL website crashes if it's Salah benched?

      Yes.

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      always chance for some rumours

  18. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Final midfield slot would you go for

    Diaz
    Jota
    Foden
    Maddison
    Zaha

    Cheers. If a Liverpool player will need to shift Allison for another keeper.

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Diaz

    2. Cojones of Destiny
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Madds then Diaz

    3. JohannaAdams10
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Maddison

    4. KANTEnders
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Madders

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Cheers guys.

        If i switch Allison out for Dubravka i can afford to get Rudiger back and upgrade the 3rd striker on the bench for final day rotation surprises.

    5. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      If it wasn't for the rumours of not starting definitely Madders. But Diaz is next.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah, on a FH why risk Thursday to Sunday players.

        Unless i get good news that Maddison starts as I'm sure he's able to play Thursday evening and Sunday afternoon.

        1. De Gea is GOAT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          I also think he should start but i've got this weird feeling Rogers will rotate a lot :/

  19. paulfantham
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Which one as my last transfer of the season, already own Son, Foden and Mount (no Maddison):

    A. Saka > KDB
    B. Richarlison > Kane

    1. KANTEnders
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B

  20. JohannaAdams10
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Who gets more points this week:

    A) Matip
    B) Saka

    1. KANTEnders
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      A

    2. Little Red Lacazette

      B

  21. KANTEnders
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 FT, 0.0 ITB

    Schmeichel
    TAA,James,Robbo,Laporte,Cancelo
    Mount,Son,Zaha,Coutinho
    Kane

    Bench : Steele,Nketiah,Gordon,Fodder

    Would you do :
    1) Coutinho to Maddison for free
    2) coutinho & Laporte > sessegnon & Diaz/Jota (-4)
    3) Coutinho & James > sessegnon & Diaz/Jota (-4)
    4) others

    A) play Nketiah in 4-4-2
    B) play Laporte/Sess in 5-4-1

    Cheers all

    1. JohannaAdams10
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      1 B

  22. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Final playing defender:

    a) Zinchenko and Gelhardt on the bench.

    b) Guéhi with Ashley Barnes on the bench?

    Thanks guys

  23. KANTEnders
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    B. More chances of a cleanie.

  24. Davew88
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Bench Richarlison or Nketiah?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Richbeachason

  25. DavvaMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Really not sure if I should go for a -8 moves would be:

    Salah > Mane
    Mahrez > Maddison
    Cash > James or Seeignon

    Cash > James would mean benching Saka, do it or not?

    Thanks

  26. Holmes
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    with majority of the spots now locked, these are the last 2 spots I'm least sure of:

    A) Mane, Dalot (no bench)
    B) Maddison, Toney (some bench)
    C) Vardy, Matip (some bench)

    1. Cojones of Destiny
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B

      But Mane may trump the bench?

      1. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        He can, thats why I'm trying to fit him in.

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          I'd be inclined to get Mane.

          I'm looking at it too but stacked on the other premium midfielders.

          1. Holmes
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            going with Kevin?

    3. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      C looks very tempting tbh. Vardy loves versing Saints. B is definitely the best option if Madders starts.

  27. Athletico Underachieving
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Coutinho & Weg - Toney and Diaz -4?

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yes

  28. De Gea is GOAT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Diaz and Pukki OR Madders and Toney?

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      MT

  29. Bubbles1985
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    I'm 29 points clear in 1 ML and 195 in another. Sitting at 108k OR.

    Almost seems pointless taking a hit this week, gutted really!

    How would this -8 look?

    Zaha, Sterling, Richarlison - Out
    Bowen, Diaz, Vardy - In

    No Citeh attacking cover!

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Go for it. It's a bit like a BB week, the final gw to get 11 players out there.

      1. Bubbles1985
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Just unsure on Vardy as Leicester have nothing to play for.

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Keep Richarlison but Everton were poor on the road and might have been on a bender since Thursday?!

          1. Bubbles1985
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            True.

            Maybe Jesus instead?
