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.

Undaunted by a heavily reduced fixture list the ScoutCast crew deliver one of their longest episodes of the season.

There may be only five matches taking place in Gameweek 31 but Joe, Luke, Az and David discover there is a wealth of different player options and strategies to deploy.

Discarding their usual player, team and talking point format for the community questions section, they instead focus in detail on the best assets to own position by position this weekend. 

While there is a consensus around goalkeepers, our ScoutCast regulars find plenty to disagree on among defenders, midfielders and strikers.

Luke is packing his team with differential ‘swords’ to attack the fixtures, while David is making sure he uses his two free transfers to include some ‘shields’ for protection.

Az is on the search for low-owned assets too and is even considering a notorious ScoutCast 'magic bean'. Unsurprisingly, Joe is not keen.

The issue of the number of hits to take in a blank fixture Gameweek also get an airing, as does advice for those using a Free Hit chip to cope with the reduction in the player pool.

Regular features are also included, with the round up of the previous Gameweek giving Az a rare chance this season to boast about a good Gameweek.

Best differentials, top clean sheet shouts as well as transfer and captaincy plans for the Gameweek ahead are also revealed.
