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.

The time comes when every Fantasy Football manager has to react quickly to douse some fires in their squad. The problem is, Mark's team is currently a blazing inferno, without a disco in sight.

At least that’s Granville’s opinion. Buoyed from seeing his canny capture of Anthony Martial deliver a brace at St Mary’s, the cocky co-host is quick to dish out a whipping to Mark's ailing lineup.

The pair discuss the merits of United’s new teenage sensation as part of another round of community questions, served up once again by Jonty. The three of them also ponder the Chelsea revival, David Silva’s fragile ankles and just how their Fantasy Football managerial styles translate to the dog world: a crunch question that’s been brewing unanswered for many episodes.

What makes a “casual” ScoutCast host? Perhaps one who takes to his bed even after a table topping 60-point return?

 

Despite bringing in his biggest haul of the season, leaving both Jonty and Mark in his wake, Granville’s man-flu gets the better of him. Not to worry, Luke, aka “D1sable”, drops in to fill his evening slippers, helping steading the ScoutCast ship in prepartion to cross the choppy waters of another community fueled episode. 

Luke and Mark look on enviously while Jonty gets dewy eyed about Dimiti Payet’s Monday night returns, before they switch attention to the fortunes of the Fantasy Football Scout crowd, scanning their fortunes in another bout of “Rough with the Smooth”, which this week includes a precautionary tail of a Fantasy Football rage injury. 

 

They round off, as always, with another bout of community questions, assessing the lure of the five-man midfield, strikers and their desperate quest for bonus points and even entertain the idea of making Kolarov our captain. The season could hardly get more bizarre.

An extraordinary ode/death threat to Granville provided the inspiration and backdrop for this week’s Scoutcast.

The poor soul wasn’t sure whether to feel flattered or mildly panicked by a community post like no other.

 

Recovering from the menacing tribute, Granville joined forces with Jonty and Mark to assess the merits of the deadline day arrivals, before grappling with another round of community questions.

They rinse through the De Bruyne debate, the heavy-hitter slump, briefly consider buying Jonny Evans, before tentatively giving out dating advice – again inspired by the imaginations of you, the community.
