Learning from ‘The Great and The Good’ FPL managers ahead of Gameweek 38

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.


“There’s some people on the pitch… they think it’s all over….”

It’s not quite over yet but there were certainly plenty of crowds on the pitch in midweek. Nottingham Forest celebrated reaching the play-off finals, inspiring Mark Sutherns to take his first-ever selfie with Djed Spence, while we also saw relief from Everton fans as they ensured survival for another season.

There was a general feeling of fatigue amongst the FPL faithful with many preparing their beach clothes for the upcoming break, which was no doubt accelerated by some phenomenal swings of fortunes over the last two Gameweeks.

Free Hits and Bench Boosts were flaunted across the community, and indeed The Great and The Good, with high expectations of green arrows for those chips, yet it was the 50/50 captaincy calls between Kevin De Bruyne (£12.1m) and Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) in Gameweek 36 and Danny Ings (£7.7m) and Richarlison (£7.6m) in Gameweek 37 which truly decided many of our fates.

OVERALL PERFORMANCE

Fabio, star turn in my recent Q&A (please do give it a read as he really is a lovely chap), showed his class by leaping past Az with an 81-point gain over Gameweeks 36 and 37 to take top spot.

Yet, he was not the highest scoring manager over the two weeks: that honour goes to Magnus Carlsen with a combined score of 250 points, all without an aid of a chip. His hot streak of captaincy picks continued, and he now has an impressive 752 armband points for the season.

It’s worth mentioning that Tom Freeman was only a point behind, thanks to a storming Gameweek 36 score of 177, more than halving his overall rank and gaining 153,000 places in that time. He looks determined to avoid being bottom of The Great and The Good.

The chips were flying with Andy top scoring this week, Free Hitting his way to 115, with James Maddison (£6.9m) and Jamie Vardy (£10.3m) both proving cunning picks. Geoff Dance also had a blinder in Gameweek 36 with his chip seeing him reach 149 points.

Bench Boosts were deployed in force in Gameweek 36 as seven of them decided to play the pine. For most it was successful but FPL Matthew and Magnus had the best returns as they gained 46 points off the substitute’s bench.

TRANSFERS

This is a summary of the transfers for this week:

Az
  • GW36 – Richalison, Gordon (Adams, Barnes)
  • GW37 – Maddison, Ings, Son, Pickford (Kulusevski, Hwang, Salah, Ramsdale)
LTFPL Andy
  • GW36 – Ederson, Nketiah (Sa, Wood)
  • GW37 – Free Hit
Fabio Borges
  • GW36 – Laporte, Nketiah (Broja, White)
  • GW37 – Free Hit
Joe Lepper
  • GW36 – Nketiah, Cancelo (Werner, White)
  • GW37 – De Bruyne, Richarlison (Salah, Watkins)
Geoff Dance
  • GW36 – Free Hit
  • GW37 – Vardy, De Bruyne (Ronaldo, Fernandes)
FPL General
  • GW36 – Gordon, Alonso (Schar, Ward-Prowse)
  • GW37 – Free Hit
Les Caldwell
  • GW36 – Mykolenko (Lamptey)
  • GW37 – Son, Vardy (Salah, Kane)
Magnus Carlsen
  • GW36 – Richalison, Maddison, De Bruyne (Pukki, Fernandes, Jota)
  • GW37 – Son, Holgate (Havertz, Robertson)
Mark Sutherns
  • GW36 – Richalison, Gordon, Dias , Pickford (Broja, Robertson, Foster, Podence)
  • GW37 – Zaha, Digne (Kulusevski, Dias)
FPL Matthew
  • GW36 – Richalison, Dias (Dennis, Robertson)
  • GW37 – Free Hit
Neale Rigg
  • GW36 – Pedro, Dias (Laporte, Mateta)
  • GW37 – Free Hit
Tom Freeman
  • GW36 – Rodrigo, Odegaard, De Bruyne (Rodriguez, Sterling, Havertz)
  • GW37 – Free Hit
Tom Stephenson
  • GW36 – Nketiah, Odegaard, Ederson (Weghorst, Kulusevski, Sa)
  • GW37 – Free Hit
Yavuz Kabuk
  • GW36 – Richalison, Jesus, Dias, Diaz (Broja, Podence, Robertson, Foster)
  • GW37 – Free Hit
Zophar
  • GW36 – Foden (Coutinho)
  • GW37 – Free Hit

The BlackBoxers were feeling cavalier over the last couple of weeks. Az took a -12 hit this week, which was saved by Maddison going mad for it, and Mark took the same triple hit gamble in Gameweek 36 but sadly the Everton trio failed to spark and his choice of Ruben Dias (£6.2m), who went off injured, highlights his rotten luck this season.

Fabio was the most effective in the transfer market with Eddie Nketiah (£5.7m) and Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) providing exceptional value in Gameweek 36, Joe got it right over both weeks with Nketiah and Richarlison proving deadly, and Les Caldwell continues to highlight a good eye for the transfer with Vitalii Mykolenko (£4.9m) last week followed by Vardy this one.

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:

  • Pickford (11), Schmeichel (6)
  • Mykolenko (11), Cash (10), Digne (9), Andersen (7), Tsimikas (6)
  • Son (15), De Bruyne (10), Zaha (10), Maddison (9), Coutinho (5)
  • Richarlison (13), Kane (9), Ings (8)

A Free Hit-impacted template this week with possibly more Villa defenders than you would expect to see, with only Kasper Schmeichel (£5.0m), Son Heung-min (£11.2m) and Harry Kane (£12.5m) surviving from the last time we looked at the squad back in Gameweek 35.

WHAT IF?

Some brutal red arrows over the last couple of weeks have left many to question, “what if?” So I thought it worthwhile to bring out the What If Machine, something that shows your score if you had made no changes over the whole season and just left well alone.

Whichever way you cut it, Fabio has demonstrated that whilst there may be some luck involved, FPL is still a game of skill as through his transfers and captains he has gained 695 points, the highest of all The Great and The Good.

Zophar, Magnus and Tom Stephenson have also showed their ability to improve their team and Az has only just pipped Mark again on this metric.

CONCLUSION

The final curtain is ready to close, but there is still one last hurrah as we prepare ourselves for the final week of the season. Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City and Spurs all have some lovely fixtures to finish the campaign, while the word ‘motivation’ will be bandied around a lot in the run-up. Perhaps we should all just go with our gut as we are deep into stoppage time, and we might just yet score that late winner.

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

      Sorry bottomed from previous post.

      14 Points off 10K, need a Mahrez replacement was thinking:

      A. Barnes
      B. Maddison

      Current midfield is:

      Mane / Son / Mahrez / Saka / Mount

      1.5M ITB

      Thanks

      1. tomasjj

        Both should play - hard to say who does best. Diaz is another option.

      2. Strudders
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Maddison is the popular choice but I do like Barnes and think he should do well

      3. lilmessipran

        B

      4. European Bob

        How many points is top 10k currently?

      5. Davemc23
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        The funny thing is if Mahrez plays he could well be the player that hauls for you and gets you into the top 10k. Could you keep him and just make sure you have a good first sub?

        1. lifes a pitch

          Thanks, not seen Mahrez in any starting lineups.

          Bench is, Cash, Broja, Gelhardt.

    6. Bonus magnet

      So much love for Toney against a leeds fighting for their lives

      1. JJO
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        One of those stupid picks from twitter guys

      2. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        They're still very poor defensively and Brentford I think have the 4th most points since Eriksen got into the starting XI? Leeds definitely will have to give them trouble but no love lost between the sides, Leeds mocked Brentford in the season they got promoted (singing "Thomas Frank mind the gap" or something similar) and Ivan Toney reposted it sarcastically recently so I think they have plenty of motivation to be the ones to seal relegation for them

      3. YEAH PITCH!
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Exactly so Leeds will be wide open.

    7. Strudders
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      When deciding between transferring in Mount or Maddison, you pick Mount right? ....right?! *bites nails*

      1. European Bob
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Yes

        1. POTATO
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          No

      2. P-P-A-P
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Yes.

      3. JELLYFISH
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I’m on both but Mount is the priority pick imo

      4. lifes a pitch
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Yes. I went with Mount even after having Maddi on fh last week

    8. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years

      Pick one to start

      I'm seeing a lot of proposed Salah - Son transfers. Unless you are protecting rank/mini league positions rather than chasing I really don't see the point in bringing Son in. His EO will be huge and therefore won't help you gain rank. Far better to go for someone else and gamble on Son blanking.

      1. European Bob
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I'm doing it but I am protecting

      2. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        People only now getting Son in boggles my mind.

        1. gooberman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Yes. It's far too late for him to have a benefit. EO now too high and all his points have been missed.

        2. ZEZIMA
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Agreed Ninja. It baffles me. Along with Salah, Trent and Cancelo, Son hasn't moved from my team since the early game weeks

      3. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        What is this logic? Why lose rank when you cam stay the same? It's still a net gain on where you would be if you didn't make the move

        1. tomasjj
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Exactly. That meme with a punter and all them maths formulas on the blackboard comes to mind.

        2. gooberman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Read my first post. I said if you are protecting/happy to say the same then fine. But if you are chasing mini league positions or rank goals then Son wont get you there.

          Im 23k and want to reach top 10k which from my position is going to take desperate measures. I own Son but will likely sell him for a differential.

          1. Deulofail
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Not everyone is desperate to achieve an arbitrary rank. Some people just want the most points they can, which will translate to the highest rank they can.

          2. tomasjj
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Right. I was a bit quick there.
            But Deulo has a point I think still.

            In your case, I'd rather keep Son as a hedge towards the downside, and have one/two other diff's and diff. captain choice.

            1. gooberman
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Yeah its tricky. I have to look at wether or not I have enough differentials in the rest of my team to make the difference and Im not sure I have.

              Everyone will be on Son and would imagine he will be highly captained so the play could be to not have him and go for a Maddison or a Bowen instead.

              I dont really care if I finish 20k or 90k really so I feel that desperate measures are needed.

              1. tomasjj
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Then it is all out for differentials.

                Son looked too eager to score last game, I felt it cramped his play and movement. golden boot fever.
                But a Burnley bus versus Norwich is different.

    10. Bruno Commando
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Toying with the idea of taking a -8. Given that I am fixed on Salah + Richarlison to Kane + Son, I will need to do either of the below to fund it. Which option would you pick? Going aggro because I'm 15 points behind my ML rival.

      1) TAA/Cancelo to Sessegnon (have Matip and Laporte)
      2) Havertz to BrunoG
      3) Drop this -8 idea

      Current team:
      Schmeichel
      TAA Cancelo Matip Laporte James
      Salah Havertz KDB Saka
      Richarliaon

      Foster Gordon Pukki Dennis

      1. European Bob
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Havertz to Diaz?

        1. Bruno Commando
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          If I go with Kane + Son, I cannot afford Diaz. My current plan is to go Salah + Richarlison to Kane + Diaz for -4. No Son scares me hence toying with -8.

    11. RamboRN
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Schmeichel
      Taa cancelo matip laporte james
      Kdb saka salah havertz
      nketiah

      Subs werner, puki, kdh, foster.

      1ft. 1m itb. Just salah to son or also swap werner to someone for -4 and play them instead of nketiah.

      1. European Bob
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Just Salah to Son. Play Eddie

        1. RamboRN
          • 10 Years

          Eddie?

        Also a Werner owner. Life would be great if he was fit for tomorrow lol

    12. Malkmus

      1 month, 16 days ago

      Morning all. 1ft, 0.6 itb. I’m 40 points ahead in ml so hopefully ok. Currently on this.

      Ramsdale
      Trent - Robbo - Cancelo- James
      Son (c) - kdb - saka- Martinelli-Kulusevski
      Richa

      Subs - Davies, Gelhardt, Ings

      Rival has Kane and Nketiah, so thinking Richarlison to Nketiah. Any thoughts?

      Ta

      1. European Bob
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Yeah sounds sensible

      2. P-P-A-P
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Wouldn't Richarlison make a better sub than Ings?
        Ings to Nketiah?

        1. Malkmus
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          That’s a very good point. Thanks

    13. Bollard
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I have 1 FT in the bank and trying to avoid taking unecessary hits. Thinking of Ings to Nketiah or Ings to Jesus. Have Saka as Arsenal already and Laporte+Cancelo for city. Cant get to Kane but already have Son.

      Tempted to go Jesus for a laugh

      1. The Knights Template
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Jesus prob leaving as Haaland comes in so perhaps it will be a send off match for him? Good option I think.

      2. YEAH PITCH!
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Jesus

      3. P-P-A-P
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Sounds an okay call.

    14. Tic Tacs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Current team for GW38:

      Ramsdale
      Justin, Robertson, James, Laporte
      Zaha, Salah, Maddison, Saka
      Kane, Mateta

      Sa, Richarlison, Gordon, Cash

      I have 2FTs and 0 in the bank. Thinking I will transfer out Salah and Mateta for either a) Son and Toney or b) Mount and Vardy, which option is the best?

      1. Mozumbus
          1 month, 16 days ago

          A

      2. MrJobby

        I assume we will go back to 1 free hit next season ? Has anyone heard or seen anything at all in regards to that ? Thanks

          No, haven’t seen anything Mr Jobby.

          I expect so.
          2nd one was sort of 'good will'.

          The 2nd FH this season was a one off, not a rule change

        Anything worth a hit? Sat at 35K rn 🙂 2.3itb. Tempted by James maybe

            I’m really concerned he’ll not get good minutes tomorrow - are you confident he will?

        Morning! Chasing in my ML, managed to close the gap from 70+ to 28 points. 2nd place gives me my money back, but want to push for 1st

        Rival's team:

        Schmeichel, Foster
        TAA, Alonso, Cancelo, Robertson, Laporte
        Coutinho, Salah, Saka, Havertz, Gordon
        Nketiah, Pukki, Dennis
        1FT 1.4 ITB

        My team:

        Ramsdale
        Robertson, Cancelo, James, Laporte
        Son, Maddison, Mount, Zaha
        Richarlison, Vardy
        Pickford, Gordon, Watkins, Cash
        1FT, 0.0 ITB

        He will likely do Salah -> Son, maybe another paid transfer like Coutinho -> Mount/Foden, or Pukki/Dennis -> Jesus. Will prob captain Son

        What should I do?

        A - Watkins, Vardy -> fodder, Kane (C) (-4)
        B - Watkins -> Toney (captain Mount)
        C - your suggestions

        10 points behind in my ML. Best option from below?

        C) Salah & Weghorst > Maddison / Bowen & Kane (-4)

        Ramsdale

          B looks good

        2. JELLYFISH
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Just A. Jesus could easily equal Kane points.

        With 3rd place secured for Chelsea and Azpi playing his last game for the club do you think Reece James will start vs Watford?

        Tuchel also commented about giving fringe players a chance.

          Azpi off on 28 mins for James. Hopefully completed before 30 mins on clock if a James owner

        Hello everyone. Last gameweek.
        Behind my mini league leader by 4 or 5 points. Did minus 8 in transfers. Had to thinking my transfers make the difference.

        So my team is
        Schmeichel
        Taa cancelo james
        Mount son diaz saka m cornet
        Vardy toney

        Ramsdale nkietiah matip amartey.

        Should i play toney or nketiah.

        Hows my team looking . I think he will go son captain i am thinking vardy as a captain. Might pay off.

        My transfers this week were
        Salah out diaz in
        Gordon out cornet in
        Rodrigo out vardy in.

      12. RealSocialDads

        Torn between 3 options for the final GW:

        A. Kane + Barnes
        B. Vardy + Diaz
        C. Vardy + Bowen

        1. Bob.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          I think B has more potential. Between a and b for me

        2. trafalgarlaw
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          A

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          I like B

        4. RealSocialDads
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Thanks all, would you believe C is the one I’m leaning towards! Definitely got some food for thought

      13. Buck The Trent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        3 pts off < top 10k, what would you do here?

        Kasper
        TAA Robbo Cancelo Laporte Alonso
        Salah KdB Mount Kulu (KDH)
        Nketiah (Richa Pukki)

        A Salah to Son (c), play EO and let the team do their thing
        B above + KDH to Maddy (-4) and bench Laporte
        C anything else ?

        Unfortunately can’t get Vardy, Kane etc due to funds

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          A

        2. No Need
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          TAA to Watford defender as I am 2 points of top 10k lol

        3. Mozumbus

            A

          Last time I can post this this season so here goes! 18k so don't think I can break into top 10k. Team for this gw

          Ramsdale
          Cancelo TAA Alonso White
          Salah Mount Maddison Saka
          Kane Weghorst

          Dubravka Gordon Broja Cash

          Don't want to -4 but I think I have to. Boring old moves of Salah to Son and Weghorst to Toney sound okay? Or should I hope that weg starts? Cheers lads have a good last gw.

            If your sole aim is to break top 10k, then I wouldn't bother with Son. Or take any sort of hit.

            Mane in for Salah and captain either him, Mount or Kane.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Hmm yeah but I do really fancy Son this week. You are right tho!

                • 10 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Yeah not saying Son won't do well (I'm captaining him, so I hope he does), but differential captaincy going to be your best shot at going for top 10k.

                Look forward to my advice paying off for you as you sail past me into the top 10k. I'm at 9.9k so holding on with my finger nails atm.

                  Yeah true. Thanks for that. Looks like weg has a 50/50.chance of starting so might just hope for that. Good luck!

          Have 2FTs and 0 in the bank. Thinking I will transfer out Salah and Mateta for either:

          a) Son and Toney or
          b) Mount and Vardy,
          which option is the best?

          1. Mozumbus
              1 month, 16 days ago

              A easy

            • 5 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            This worth a -8?

            Foden Coutinho Ings to Mount Kulu Kane

            1. Bob.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              No. I'd do a -4 and keep foden and hope he starts which he very well could do

              1. THFC4LIFE
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Can’t afford the other moves without Foden downgrade, but thanks

                  Can you do kulu and vardy? Or do you reckon spurs are gonna hammer Norwich

            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I want to take a hit, but who to replace?

            Raya ¦ Foster
            Pinnock Alonso Matip
            Salah Son Mount Bernardo
            Kane Pukki Nketiah
            ¦ Zaha Amartey Cash

            0 ITB

            1. Slitherene
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Jansson for Pinnock

            2. Mozumbus
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Pukki to Toney

              How's this 11 look on a FH?

              Alison
              TAA James Cancelo Sessegnon
              Foden Son Diaz Madison Mount
              Kane

              1. Mozumbus
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  No KDB?

                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 16 days ago

                    Couldn't fit him in, so took Foden to help cover?

                    1. Mozumbus
                        1 month, 16 days ago

                        It's a nice distribution of funds. I imagine high scoring games so not investing a lot in defense.

                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  Already on a -4 and leading my mini league by 6..

                  A Weghorst > Toney -4
                  B play Weghorst or Dalot

                  1. AC/DC AFC

                    A or risk Dalot.

                    There will be benching risks elsewhere too so the hit may be okay.
