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.
