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.

Do we make our own luck in Fantasy Football? Or are there unforeseen events that can conspire to ruin even the best managers’ season?

In this week’s ScoutCast Joe, David, Andy and Az discuss the role of fortune in the game and look to introduce a ‘luck league’.

This league is one of a number of new and revamped features we trialed in this episode.

This saw the return of old favourites including rough with the smooth and clean sheet predictions as well as a new version of Fantasy island risk that focuses purely on low-owned gems.

Our community section has undergone a late spring clean too, focusing on the week’s key teams, players and talking point to allow us to have more in-depth discussions.

But as with all trials, some things don’t quite go as planned.

The introduction of forfeits for the ScoutCaster with the lowest monthly score and an unexpectedly controversial quiz proved to be more works in progress, which will be put back on the shelf for the time being.

Among all the upheaval we also find time to ponder going without Mohamed Salah and frisk the fixtures to analyse the teams with the best upcoming run of games.
