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.

With a hangover like this Gameweek 20 must have been a great party.

Except it wasn’t. It was awful. Hardly anyone turned up.

The only memories of the last set of matches are of being alone, crying in the kitchen, swearing at teamsheets and wishing for a captaincy haul.

Joe and Andy struggle through their hideous Christmas hangover and their unhappy festive FPL memories, hoping for better luck in Gameweek 21.

At least they’ve been handed some clues about who will start on New Year’s Day as they consider the players most and least likely to take to the pitch.

They also look further ahead, most notably to Gameweek 24, when Liverpool and West Ham have a Double Gameweek. But which three Reds assets are the best to bring in? And are any Hammers worth considering?

Joe likes to look at fixture blocks during each campaign. With this in mind our duo answer your questions about the best players for the next mini-season during January. Form, fixtures and a world-class manager mean that Everton’s troops look particularly appealing.

The communities’ roughest and smoothest moves also get an airing, Andy takes his turn picking a differential and there are clean sheets to consider.

Son’s red card against Chelsea on Sunday is threatening to ruin Christmas for FPL managers. With their best laid plans in tatters Joe, David and Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy look at the best replacements for the naughty Spurs midfielder.

Pogba’s return, Everton’s new management and Liverpool’s tricky fixture are also discussed as they consider the best moves to make for Gameweek 19’s Boxing Day fixtures.

Top captaincy candidates are also under scrutiny and our trio look ahead to the best clean sheets prospects for the festive fixtures and beyond.

Rough with the Smooth takes in the mixed fortunes among those vying for the FPL crown this season.

Meanwhile, David takes his turn to pick a differential. With Joe and Andy’s recent selections failing to muster points, the Scoutcast can do with a top, low-owned gem.

Joe and Luke look ahead to Gameweeks 20 and 21 in Sky Sports Fantasy Football.

Joe, Andy and Karam look ahead to FPL Gameweek 18 and firm up their plans for how to tackle Liverpool’s blank fixture, while the Reds are on Club World Cup duties.

Andy believes the League leaders' defence is dispensible whereas Joe is using the fixture schedule to juggle his premium midfielders. All three of our Scoutcasters are in agreement though when it comes to tapping into Spurs’ favourable run of games in Gameweek 18.

Chelsea’s slump in form is also looked at, with Karam on hand with some statistics to show the dramatic extent of the Fantasy Premier League demise of Christian Pulisic.

It’s highly likely that Blues assets will not be featuring in many Wildcard drafts, for those lucky enough to still have this chip available.

Our trio are not so fortunate, but use this latest episode to play fantasy Fantasy football and pretend they still have the Wildcard to play. Here they have a keen eye on January’s fixtures as they run through the players they would bring in, position by position.

For those watching the video version, watch out for Joe’s cat making a rare appearance at the 13 minute mark. Also with an eye on the clock, due to illness Andy is sadly unable to reach the 59 minute mark and claim his extra appearance point. His tweet shortly afterwards shows just how incredible it is that he made it as far as he did during the show.

There are also festive and New Year clean sheets to look over and Joe takes his turn picking a top differential to climb the rankings over the next four Gameweeks. With many exciting options already taken recently our resident dullard doesn’t disappoint.

This episode rounds off with Gameweek 18’s transfer plans and captaincies being revealed.

Joe and David discuss the best Fantasy Premier League captaincy options for Gameweek 18.

With Liverpool busy with World Club Cup commitments and Man City facing Leicester, this looks a great week to take a risk with the captaincy.

Could Rashford be the best option? Or could the consistency of Jiminez and Ings win out?

Joe and Luke look ahead to GW19 in the Sky Sports Fantasy Football game. Is it time to dump Aubameyang? Or has his latest points haul saved him?

Meanwhile, there are other premium player problems to consider. Can Mane be kept through his blank fixture? And what of the rise of Rashford?

Are Spurs assets a must over Christmas?

The ascent of Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son is among the key issues Joe, David and Karam tackle ahead of Gameweek 17.

The Spurs midfielder’s broad range of points from goals to assists and bonus has understandably caught their eye ahead of his side’s favourable fixture run.

But who makes way and which other of the North London side’s assets should he be paired up with?

Man City’s once bright stars are being increasingly jettisoned by FPL managers and look to be the obvious fall guys in the clamour for Mourinho’s troops.

However, Liverpool’s high flying assets could become unlikely players to dump.

This episode’s key talking point jumps ahead to Gameweek 18, when Klopp’s lads miss a fixture due to World Club Cup commitments. On their return a hard to call clash with Leicester awaits and the Scoutcast crew mull over the unthinkable – saying goodbye to Liverpool’s premium players, albeit temporarily.

The set of fixtures just passed also come under discussion, in particular Joe and David’s removal of a bracing player each from their line-ups. But thanks to their replacements also performing well, they have mixed feelings about their moves.

World chess champion Magnus Carlsen’s team is looked at again, after he reached an eye-watering fourth spot in the overall rankings.

Meanwhile, Gameweek 17’s transfer plans and captaincies are revealed. There are festive clean sheets to look over and Karam takes his turn picking a top differential to climb the rankings over the next four Gameweeks.

Joe and David look at the best FPL captaincy options for GWK 17. Is Vardy once again the most reliable armband option? Or can Liverpool and Spurs assets bring in more points?

Manchester United's talisman, Chelsea's players and Manchester City's fading armband stars also come under consideration.

Spurs assets are high on their agenda, but can Mourinho's troops bounce back from their Old Trafford defeat midweek?

Our duo also look ahead to Gameweek 17 and beyond and react to the lunchtime teamsheets.

The goals imminent table also makes an appearance to show which players are due a goal or two.

There is a nostalgic theme to this week’s episode, with Joe joined by fellow seasoned ScoutCasters Andy and Az.

Meanwhile, Joe’s ‘nostalgia pick’ of Harry Kane also comes under deserved scrutiny, especially as other strikers, most notably Marcus Rashford, are looking far more appealing.

Our trio consider the merits of drafting in the Manchester United talisman, even before a derby clash this weekend in Gameweek 16. They also reveal their favoured front three going into the festive fixtures.

Formation comes under the spotlight in their lively discussion about how the wealth of cheap defenders this season have altered the thinking of many Fantasy Premier League managers.

Whipping boys are also looked at as the Scoutcast crew consider the defenders to avoid, while Az reveals the best teams for clean sheets over the next six Gameweeks.

Andy takes his turn choosing a differential after recent successes, for Az’s Alli selection two weeks ago and Sam’s James Ward-Prowse punt last time out.

Chess champion Magnus Carlsen is the star of Gameweek 15’s rough with the smooth round up of your latest scores.

This retro-charged episode also reveals Joe, Andy and Az’s strategies for Gameweek 16, including their transfer and captaincy plans.

Rotation looks inevitable in Gameweek 15, the second of three set of fixtures in quick succession. Our ScoutCast trio of Joe, Az and FPL Family's Sam look at the surprises in store this week plus the team sheet headaches that await over the festive schedule.

For some, like Sam, they can be a little over prepared, with points mounting up due to her great bench. Az is happy with his weaker substitutes for the time being, while ever the dullard Joe sits somewhere in the middle, with a credible, but ultimately boring, bunch of benchwarmers.

Elsewhere, the plethora of midfield marauders available in Fantasy Premier League are looked at, with Crystal Palace’s talisman Wilfried Zaha as well as Spurs’ ‘number 10’ Dele Alli topping the Scoutcasters’ shopping list. Those wanting to jettison Chelsea’s Mason Mount will be among those keen to shop around.

Our crews’ Gameweek 15’s captaincy and transfer plans get an airing and they also look back on the roughest and smoothest previous set of fixtures for some, thanks to Liverpool’s Salmon-like, leaping centre back.

Meanwhile, the ScoutCast is on a roll with their differential picks recently, with Lee, Az and Tom’s picks all finding the net this week. Can Sam keep that fine run going?

There’s Christmas clean sheets to look at as well as a lively debate over Spurs’ centre forward, or ‘expensive defensive midfielder’, as Az refers to him.
