The Scout Network

The Scout Network 12

The Scout Network is a new initiative from Fantasy Football Scout designed to celebrate the very best voices in the Fantasy community, from awesome armchair managers and cracking YouTube creators to the top Tweeters and toolmakers all around the world.

Although the channels are fully independent, you can expect them to be involved in a few FFS activities throughout the season and wherever you see the SN logo you’ll know that they have the Scout seal of approval!

We’re aiming to keep the squad quite compact, but we do have a couple of slots left and will be adding to the ranks in the weeks ahead, so do check back (or let us know if you fancy a trial!)

In the meantime go ahead and click the links, like, subscribe and enjoy!
