Suddenly many of the trusted troops drafted in during Fantasy Premier League managers’ first Wildcard look like they need moving on.
Lack of form, tricky long-term fixtures and rotation have conspired to see Fantasy Premier League managers remove the likes of John Lundstram, Diego Rico, Tammy Abraham and even Jamie Vardy.
The Scoutcast crew of Joe, Karam and Pro Pundit Tom consider the players best placed to join their outdated squads.
This includes a keen eye on those with a great remaining set of games, including Wolves, Southampton and Sheffield United.
Karam has already overhauled his side and is reaping the rewards. Meanwhile, Tom is not happy with his squad but is holding off deploying his second Wildcard chip for a while.
Joe has had enough of average returns from his lacklustre group of players and is currently assembling a freshly Wildcarded squad.
During their chat about chip strategies and the blank and double Gameweeks ahead, he reveals his current revamped line up.
Chief among his issues is whether that will include Sergio Aguero or not. With West Ham’s dilapidated defence visiting the Etihad the forward looks the best captaincy option this weekend. But during our trio’s discussion the marksman’s medium term viability is called into question.
Gameweek 26’s unusual structure also features in this packed 80 minute episode. The winter break means half the top flight’s teams play this weekend, with the remaining games taking place a week later.
Elsewhere, Tom takes his turn to pick a differential for the next four Gameweeks, there are clean sheets to consider and decisions around that tricky Sergio Aguero Gameweek 26 captaincy question are revealed.
