The Fantasy Football Scoutcast
More than a decade ago Fantasy Football Scout launched its first first podcast – the legendary ScoutCast. Since then it has expanded to include an even wider range of expert opinion, stats and laughs to help you sniff out the likeliest clean sheets and best buys. Fantasy Football Scout’s podcast family has grown further in recent years to include captaincy and team news editions each Gameweek. Meanwhile, our regular Breakfast Club episodes add further analysis ahead of each deadline. There’s also our Meet the Manager series to check out – which sees us chat to Fantasy managers with a stellar track record of success.

All four of our ScoutCast crew are firing up their Free Hit chip ahead of the largest Double Gameweek of the season.

Among issues they discuss is the danger of being caught in a social media ‘bubble’, where Free Hitters are scrambling to find differential alternatives to a perceived template.

Latest figures from the Fantasy Premier League, however, knock this theory out of the water, with just 1.3% of managers actually triggering this chip ahead of Gameweek 32.

Even among Free Hitters the notion of a template appears to be a myth, with the ScoutCast crew, of Joe, Luke, Az and Neale, revealing their markedly different approaches.

In this episode each discusses in detail the formations they favour and answer the community’s questions on the best defence, midfield and attacking assets to accumulate.

The Gameweek 32 captaincy debate is also looked at in detail, with Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane all in the mix.

Those wildcarding or simply not using any chips this time around are not forgotten, with the crew keeping an eye on forthcoming fixtures with some key tips on players to bring in for the long-term.

Over more than 90 minutes of chat the ScoutCasters also ensure there is time to quickly look back on their decidedly average Gameweek 31 and reveal their clean sheet and differential tips.
