Points ceilings and floors dominate proceedings on our latest ScoutCast as Joe, Az, Luke and Neale look over the key issues facing managers ahead of Gameweek 13.
A chief concern is who replaces red-flagged Benjamin Mendy who underwent surgery last week. The enticing secure floor of clean sheet returns offered by the full-back’s Manchester City team mates, John Stones and Aymeric Laporte, appeals to Luke.
Meanwhile, Joe prefers the higher ceiling of riches offered by the likes of Everton left-back Lucas Digne, who has been posting some impressive underlying statistics lately to suggest attacking returns are on the way.
Our community questions section also covers the wider value offered by Toffees assets across the pitch, and whether 12.4m priced Harry Kane is worth the outlay when Spurs fixtures improve.
Whether Anthony Martial’s six goals in his last five matches is a sign the Manchester United attacker is 'in form', or merely 'over-performing', is another issue discussed.
We also find time to look back at the previous set of matches and ahead in detail to Gameweek 13, including the best differentials, strongest clean sheet prospects and our transfer plans.
Captaincy options are also considered, with the maverick selections of Az, Luke and Neale leaving dullard Joe stunned.
