The Fantasy Football Scoutcast
Let Mark and Granville sniff out your clean sheets and assist your fantasy football season with a regular serving of stuff and nonsense from the English Premiership. News and analysis is mixed with lively banter between the two bitter mini-league rivals as the pair laugh off a life of mid-table mediocrity.

After gaining an unwelcome set of red arrows in Gameweek 10 the ScoutCast crew are in need of a lift.

The perfect man for the job could well be Watford’s bargain basement priced striker, the aptly named Isaac Success Ajayi.

Joe, David and Az discuss the merits of bringing in the Nigerian, who could enable a formation shake up with a greater focus in defence and midfield.

Among the midfield success stories recently has been Ross Barkley, who has averaged 13 Fantasy Premier League points a match over his last three run outs. His potential to liven up a Fantasy squad in the doldrums is also discussed, as the crew answer the community’s questions.

The rotation threat facing such potentially potent Fantasy forces as Barkley is considered in further detail, as is whether stronger benches may be needed to cope with unexpected no-shows from well owned stars.

Bournemouth’s chances of ensuring their stellar form can trump a tricky fixture run also get an airing, as does the best differential picks and clean sheet prospects for Gameweek 11. This also features the selections of Luke, who due to internet issues was sadly unable to attend this week’s show. He’ll be back next week though to see how his picks performed.

With fresh rotation risks and plummeting form to deal with the ScoutCast crew’s Fantasy Premier League teams are in danger of becoming out of date.

In this week’s episode Joe, David and Az are joined by new regular Luke, who has stepped in for Andy, to cast their collective eye over the current Fantasy Football trends.

Joe is in search of the latest backline look as he seeks to dump his decidedly unfashionable defence.

Az’s midfield is looking more like mutton dressed as lamb these days and is in urgent need of a make-over.

Meanwhile, grey is the new black for David as he reveals his extra special overall rank following the last set of games.

Elsewhere, Luke’s success in Gameweek 9 shows he is ahead of the curve on the transfer catwalk, in particular with his Red or Dead defence.

Amid all the sartorial chat the crew find time to answer the key questions from the community as they window shop for bargain enablers and admire the top price options at Manchester City.

Az’s rough with the smooth run down features a disastrous set of hits for one former ScoutCaster.

The show is then rounded off with a close look at Gameweek 10, including the best differentials, clean sheet prospects and our transfer and captaincy plans.

Battling through traffic, illness and technical glitches, the Scoutcast crew emerge triumphant to discuss the key issues affecting Fantasy Football managers in Gameweek 9 and beyond.

After being stuck in motorway congestion a cold-ridden Az dropped by to join Joe, David and Andy just in time to answer the community’s questions about why none of us own assets from Arsenal. This is particularly head-scratching given the Gunners have scored more goals than any other side over the last four Gameweeks.

We also shake our heads in disbelief at why so many Fantasy managers are ignoring Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling, who is proving to be well worth his premium price tag this term.

Liverpool’s injury list, and patchy form of some of their top players, ahead of a fine run of games also comes under scrutiny.

Elsewhere, David invents ‘the courteous brag’ as he details how he was the only member of the crew not to be bewitched by Tottenham's misfiring striker Harry Kane in Gameweek 8.

Gameweek 9 differentials and clean sheet prospects also get an airing and we finish off with Andy revealing his latest audacious transfer plan.

The ScoutCast crew take up dancing this week in a desperate bid to figure out which of the many strong performing heavy-hitters they can squeeze into their teams.

Joe and Andy are looking to adapt the hokey-cokey, with the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sergio Aguero dropping out, then back into, their teams to briefly accommodate Harry Kane.

Az has gone one step further from merely putting the Spurs striker in and Liverpool winger out and has decided to wiggle his whole team about with a Wildcard.

Meanwhile, David is less ambitious on the dancefloor and is looking to instead dad-dance to a low-key goalkeeper cha-cha-cha.

Each of these moves, including a close look at Az’s wildcard, are detailed via the community’s questions as we tackle this week’s key talking point, player and teams.

The crew also find time to quick-step through the community’s roughest and smoothest recent transfers and foxtrot across Gameweek 8’s best differentials and likeliest clean sheets.
