Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
Mohamed Salah certainly provided a timely reminder that he is already one of Fantasy Football all time greats on Saturday, with a hat-trick at the Vitality Stadium against Bournemouth.
But even that impressive display is seemingly not enough to convince all of the ScoutCast crew that the Liverpool attacker should be an essential part of their festive line ups.
Joining Joe, David and Luke in this week’s episode is Adam Hopcroft, who has featured on our Meet the Manager series and is among those still looking to ditch the Egyptian.
During a Salexit discussion in our community questions section Adam reveals that there may well be better premium priced assets who are more deserving of attention.
In contrast, Joe and David are still backing the Reds marksman following his recent goal glut, which also includes a midweek strike against Napoli in the Champions League. Meanwhile Luke is resolutely continuing his no-Salah policy, even though it cost him dear last time out.
Salah unsurprisingly dominates the crew’s look back at Gameweek 16, including a special instalment of Rough with the Smooth, dedicated to those who jettisoned the Liverpool man before his weekend heroics.
The crew also provide an update on the latest whipping boys and the potential captain candidates who look set to exploit their frailties over Christmas.
Elsewhere, our community questions section takes in the emerging battle between Fantasy Premier League’s old guard of veterans and the new, social-media and price prediction site savvy managers on the scene.
The crew round off with a look at the best differentials and clean sheet prospects in Gameweek 17, as well as reveal their transfer and captaincy plans.
