FPL

Follow the FFScout team’s weekly FPL transfer plans in 2022/23

Ahead of each Gameweek deadline, we here at Fantasy Football Scout provide a Scout Picks line-up that picks out the standout Fantasy Premier League (FPL) players for the upcoming round.

But what if Scout put our collective efforts into one season-long team, too? Rather than individual advice towards one Gameweek, this would be a long-term team effort that strategises for a marathon, not a sprint.

Thanks to our partners at Premier Fantasy Tools (PFT), we can use this pre-season downtime to build an initial 15-man squad, plan future transfers and reveal it to the watching world.

And we’ll be using PFT’s FPL Planner Tool to do this. By becoming a PFT Supporter for just £0.99 per month or by signing up to the FFS/PFT ‘bundle deal’, users can view this Scout super-squad, disagree with it and then personalise their own copy.

  • ADVANCED PLANNING: Get access to a plan curated by a team of managers from both Fantasy Football Scout and Premier Fantasy Tools. Get insight into transfer plans, chip usage, captaincies and more decisions that go beyond just the next Gameweek.
  • COPY AND CUSTOMISE: As a Supporter, you can replicate this curated plan to your own personal planner, allowing you to tweak certain decisions to suit your preferences.
  • PLAN SUMMARY: See a snapshot of your FPL plan for all 38 Gameweeks.
  • AVAILABLE ON ALL PLATFORMS: You can view and tweak your FPL plan on any mobile device or laptop. Apps are also available via the App store and Google Play.

THE ‘SCOUT/PFT PICKS’ PLAN – EARLY THOUGHTS

First of all, there is still over a week until the 2022/23 campaign begins, with more friendlies to come as well as the Community Shield. So this plan could definitely change.

But to showcase the benefits of the PFT team planner, here is the latest attempt.

Currently, the plan is to play 4-4-2 with a defence that contains the highly-attacking trio of Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m), Reece James (£6.0m) and Joao Cancelo (£7.0m). There is uncertainty over Ivan Perisic‘s (£5.5m) match fitness, so a Manchester City double-up puts Ederson (£5.5m) in goal.

In midfield, it’s Liverpool’s turn to double-up via Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) and Luis Diaz (£8.0m). The pre-season of Marcus Rashford (£6.5m) could lead to a rejuvenation that makes a mockery of his huge price drop, whilst bargain man Pedro Neto (£5.5m) is starring in Wolves’ summer.

Up front is the highly-owned duo of Erling Haaland (£11.5m) and Gabriel Jesus (£8.0m), although the temptation to somehow squeeze in either Harry Kane (£11.5m) or Son Heung-min (£12.0m) is huge.

As the teams with premium assets are also those with outstanding early fixture runs, it’s hard to plan transfers for Gameweek 3 and beyond. One idea is to bring in Brentford’s Pontus Jansson (£4.5m) after Rayan Ait-Nouri (£4.5m) faces Leeds United (a) and Fulham (H), with Gabriel Martinelli (£6.0m) replacing Rashford.

Again, plans will be finalised just before the 2022/23 season gets underway. Friday deadlines will see us submit our final team selection by 1pm (GMT/BST) of that day, while we’ll have updated our planner by 6pm on Friday when there are Saturday deadlines.

PREMIER FANTASY TOOLS

As well as this team planner, there is a great range of FPL tools for managers to use throughout the season.

Fantasy Football Community covered the main selling points of PFT, such as the Live Rank and Hindsight Dream Team features.

Manager Tracker is a useful way to gather all of your favourite FPL managers into one place, so you can track their weekly progress and learn the things that make them great.

Meanwhile, there are tools that monitor fixture difficulty, all-time rankings, captaincy picks, transfer recommendations and much more.

    Pick the faults in this draft then.........

    MENDY
    TAA, CANCELO, CASH, DALOT
    SALAH, DIAZ, KULUSEVSKI, NETO
    JESUS, HAALAND

    (bench all cheapest fodder)

    1. Bartowski

      It's too loud...

    2. klipp klopp
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Identical to me but I have mahrez over kulu

      1. dynamike
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Interesting, not worried about his nailed-ness?

        1. klipp klopp
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          I mean kulu is equally at risk to rotation, when mahrez Comes off bench he performs as well so hopefully 5 sub rule means he is never stuck on bench

      2. gryffsonofarthur
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        I like grealish for 1mil less than foden mahrez

    3. Jrot94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I went Ramsdale over Mendy, Mings/Martinelli over Cash/Neto...we're only holding our AV defender for 3-4 weeks, not sure the 0.5m upgrade is worth it

  2. Emiliano Sala
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Going with vvd, robbo and diaz but I’m really scared of not owning salah
    Who’s with me?

    1. Christina.
      • 14 Years

      lol

    2. SH1M1
      • 12 Years

      Don’t be scared, as long as your players do well, it won’t matter

      o/

    4. gryffsonofarthur
      • 5 Years

      Trent of VVD if you are going without MO

    5. MamboNumberOne
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I'm back and forth on owning Salah.

  3. footballfreak
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    How about stones? now laporte is injured...

    1. klipp klopp
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I like Walker more, if no lb is signed he’s nailed

    2. Z
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Walker for me

    3. Emiliano Sala
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Great option if nailed

    4. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      hes only just returned to training, Ake might start a few. I agree, Walker going under the radar at 5m

  4. Milk, 1 Šuker
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    What's the Fantasy Football Scout and Fantasy Football Scout Members league codes please?

  5. Freund88
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Would love some feedback

    Sanchez Steele
    TAA Cancelo Justin N. Williams
    Salah Foden Sancho Neto Gordon
    Jesus Kane Greenwood

    Struggling between Foden and Diaz, but trying to cover Haaland risk

    1. klipp klopp
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Only 4 defenders?

    2. gryffsonofarthur
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Diaz

    3. Fish up a tree
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Is Justin nailed?

      1. gryffsonofarthur
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Ish

  6. klipp klopp
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Do people think mahrez will play

    1. gryffsonofarthur
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      A bit more but still a rotation risk

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Picking between him, Foden and Grealish is a pain in the a**

      1. gryffsonofarthur
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        I’d go grealish for the 1million saving
        Then maybe upgrade a 4.5 goalie to a premium like Ederson

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          Got Mendy

        2. klipp klopp
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          Is grealish not a rotation risk?

        3. Bobby Digital
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          ... and Cancelo. Want to keep the Haaland option open, so will only need one City def.

    3. Sun God Nika
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Prob will but as always the pep roulette

    4. Jock Grealish
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      at all? no.

  7. gryffsonofarthur
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    A) Sanchez Zinchenko Rashford

    Or

    B) Ederson Zinchenko Neto

    1. klipp klopp
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      A, just

    2. linkafu
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      B

  8. M2.0
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    RMT please? (0.5m itb for flexibility)

    —-——-——Raya——————
    Trippier - TAA - Cancelo - Robbo
    Salah - Neto - Martinelli - Sancho
    ———— Kane - Jesus ————

    1. I.K
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Good to go if you think Sancho will match 8.0 mids

      1. M2.0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Cheers, He’s the only i’m not 100% about but i’m willing to take the gamble based on his good pre-season but i’ve also covered myself by leaving a bit in the bank so i can move to one of the 8m mids if required.

        1. I.K
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          Great. I would say you are good to.

    Suggestions welcomed

    Mendy
    TAA Cancelo VVD James
    KDB Diaz Martinelli Neto

    1. Christina.
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Are you really trying to go without Salah and trying to predict and call the Haaland and Kane hauls?
      Good luck in getting that right.
      If you dont plan to WC early just get Salah, Jesus/Martinelli, Haaland and Son/Kane

      1. Emiliano Sala
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        If I get salah I will start with haaland as I don’t have a city cover. Thanks buddy

        1. Christina.
          • 14 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          The above team will own Haaland and Kdb in wk 2

  12. smix
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Ward
    Taa, Walker, Zinchenko
    Salah, Diaz, Mahrez, Rashford, Martinelli
    Jesus, Kane
    Raya Dalot Andreas Archer

    How’s this looking ?

    1. gryffsonofarthur
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Ward?

    2. smix
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Sorry Neco not Andreas

    3. SH1M1
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I would do the following

      Diaz>Colback
      Dalot>Robertson/Cancelo
      Zinchenko/Walker>James

      1. SH1M1
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        But overall it’s a nice team, even if you keep it as it is

  13. linkafu
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Pick a trio:

    A Ederson Trippier Neco
    B Pope Walker Dalot

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      maybe look at 4.5 GK with Walker and Tripper in def

    2. gryffsonofarthur
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      a) but with Zinchenko over trippier for fixtures

      1. linkafu
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        I'm not a Zinchenko fan, yes he come from city but he always has been the guy on the bench. I don't get why people are so excited about him. Not sur he'll put Tierney on the bench

  14. Emiliano Sala
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Which one?

    A) Salah, Ederson, Zinchenko
    B) KDB, Mendy, VVD

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      A but i'm not hot in Zinch, look at Walker, Trippier, Spuds def, Cash/Digne, Gabriel etc

      1. gryffsonofarthur
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        What’s your issue with Zinchenko?
        Could play in midfield and Tierney injured.

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          I need to get updates on Tierney injury, but if he is confirmed out for a while, he's a great pick

  15. Saviour22
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Meslier
    Taa walker tripper
    Salah grealish Rashford martinelli
    Kane Jesus firminio

    Subs cash Andreas neco

    How is it

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Wouldnt go anywhere near Firminio

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        ^^

    2. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Firmino linked with transfer to Juventus.

    3. Jock Grealish
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      3/10

  16. gryffsonofarthur
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Has anyone else gone from having 5 premium defenders to then whittling them down to just the main three?

    Bonus points for saying who those main 3 premiums are!

  17. Lignja
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    This should be my team for gw1

    Ramsdale
    Taa, Cancelo, James, Dalot
    Salah, Diaz, Grealish, Neto
    Kane, Jesus

  18. Emiliano Sala
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Best 5.0 def?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Gabriel

      1. Emiliano Sala
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Not attacking enough

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Trippier followed by Gabriel and Walker/Cresswell for me

    3. gryffsonofarthur
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Zinchenko Trippier Gabriel

    4. linkafu
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Walker/Trippier

      1. gryffsonofarthur
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Cucurella signing will make Walker a terrible option

        1. linkafu
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          Not sure about that for the first part of the season. Cucurella will have to understand Pep system before he gets into the XI.

    5. UnluckyXI
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Based on goal contributions @ 5.0m

      Doherty: 7 in very low no. of minutes
      Reggie: 6
      Cash: 7
      Cresswell: 6

      Gabriel highest goal scorer with 5

  19. Emiliano Sala
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Sorry for asking again

    A) Raahford + VVD
    B) Diaz + 5.0 def

    1. Cal1umz
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I like b better

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      B

    3. Thomas Magnum
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I slightly like A myself

    4. linkafu
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Diaz Walker/Trippier

  20. Cal1umz
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Zinchenko or Walker?

    Already have Cancelo if that makes a difference

    Thank you

    1. Emiliano Sala

      Zed

    2. gryffsonofarthur

      Zinchenko more nailed

      #Reply Fail
      I feel like west ham can get at least 1 goal but literally no one will know

      Zinch over walker to to have more less eggs in one basket

    4. linkafu
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Walker

    I feel like west ham can get at least 1 goal but literally no one will know

    Zinch over walker to to have more less eggs in one basket

  22. gryffsonofarthur
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Ederson Cancelo best cover for City defence

  23. gryffsonofarthur
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Run from walker

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I remember I owned Walker for a bit last season, was a consistent source of like 5-7 points, but one of the only assists he ever got whilst in my side was from a throw in he took haha

      1. linkafu
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        A consitent source of 5-7 points is ok for 5m

        1. UnluckyXI
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          That's great for a 5.0, no 5.0 got over 150 points last season. If they play 30 games and average 5 that's already done that.

          Problem with Walker is he'll likely get 5 every game he plays but only start 20-25 especially with the 5-sub rule he could be rotated

  24. Tsparkes10
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Happy with this... What do we think?

    Ramsdale
    Taa Cancelo James Dias
    Salah Diaz Bailey Martinelli
    Kane Jesus
    (4.0, Andreas, Nico, Taylor)

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Nice team! Would downgrade one of James/Dias and upgrade Bailly. But that’s me

  25. linkafu
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Best Keeper:

    A Ramsdale
    B Pope
    C Mendy
    D Sanchez+ 0.5

  28. Uncle John from Jamaica
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Chaps

    Now Jimi is out for Wolves who is the forward?

    1. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Podence most likely.

  29. Stranger Mings
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    If city sign cucurella is Walker a no go and better to get ake ?

    1. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I think if they sign him, once he gets into the starting 11, which will be quickly, he will be an absolute star and will end up in pretty much everyones team before long.

      1. Stranger Mings
