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.

Andy and Neale discuss the latest press conference news ahead of Gameweek 28 to see if there's any changes that need to be made to our FPL Teams.

Gameweek 28 marks one of a number of fixture hurdles facing Fantasy Premier League managers during the season run in. Tough decision lay ahead, with Manchester City, Arsenal, Aston Villa and Sheffield United all skipping a league match, due to League Cup scheduling.

Out Scoutcast trio of Joe, Karam and Az are on hand to answer your questions about whether the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang are worth benching or replacing.

Meanwhile, Manchester United finally have a creative player in their squad. This latest episode considers how Bruno Fernandes is shaking up the Red Devils attack and the FPL template, as one of a number of emerging mid-priced midfield gems.

Leicester’s fixture turn, starting at relegation certainties Norwich this weekend, also comes under scrutiny. Is Jamie Vardy’s reputation enough to reward his backers? Or are their better, low-owned Foxes that deserve more attention?

Karam takes his turn selecting a differential for the next month, following Holly’s great choice of Manchester United’s Fernandes last week. There’s clean sheets to consider and Az’s rough with the smooth round up of your Gameweek 27 takes in one Scoutcast regular’s audacious Bench Boost success.

Joe and David look at the best captain picks in FPL GWK 28.

There is a reduced fixture schedule this time around, leaving Liverpool assets looking like the best armband options.

It also looks a good week for those wanting to take a risk with a differential captain.

The current Premier League winter break has conspired to make Gameweek 26 one of the longest that FPL managers have experienced.

It therefore seems fitting that this latest edition of the Scoutcast is an extended episode, spanning 90 minutes as the crew are finally able to look ahead to Gameweek 27 and beyond.

Among the pressing issues discussed by Joe, Holly and Az is the potentially season ending injury to Heung-Min Son and the best replacements for the Tottenham attacker.

Relegation scrappers, in particular, Aston Villa’s talismanic midfielder Jack Grealish, also come under consideration as FPL managers hope the basement dwelling stars will defy their perilous position to deliver points.

Meanwhile, Manchester City’s financial fair play issues and subsequent Champions League ban are discussed. How will UEFA’s momentous decision affect the Citizens’ chances of domestic success for the season run in?

The winter-break scheduling also sparks a lively debate on potential rule changes for FPL next season. Could the busy festive fixture period be reduced to create an extra Gameweek in February?

Points allocation changes, player reclassification and revamping chips are among a raft of other FPL tweaks our trio ponder.

This episode’s look at Gameweek 26 sees Az present a ‘dossier’ to Joe concerning his recent Wildcard. This gives Joe a chance to discuss how a serious health scare last year is driving his decisions this time around.

Holly takes her turn to pick a differential, on the back of Lateriser12’s recent success selecting Arsenal’s Pepe, who racked up 17 points against Newcastle last weekend. So, no pressure there.

Clean sheets are looked at and our trio round off proceedings by revealing their captaincy and transfer plans.

This Scoutcast was first beamed on Tuesday February 18 via our YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe to get notified of future live episodes.

Joe and David consider the best captaincy candidates for FPL Gameweek 27.

Liverpool's stars have the standout fixture, when West Ham visit. But can Southampton's Danny Ings provide a strong alternative for the armband, against Villa.

Plans for Man City owners in #Skyff are in tatters.

The Sky Blues postponed -  then rescheduled   - fixture means planned transfers may have to be set aside.

Decisions need to be made.

Darren Wiles has quietly over the last decade amassed one of the best ever Fantasy Premier League careers.

Since he started in 2009/10 he has finished in the top thousand places three times. In fact only once has he finished a campaign poorly, in 2015/16, when Leicester won the Premier League title.

With such a track record he deservedly sits in seventh spot in Fantasy Football Scout’s live hall of fame.

During his chat with Joe, Darren reveals the secrets to his success.

It’s an achievement he is modest about, rarely speaking in public about his FPL management so we were fortunate that he made an exception for us.

This was his first ever Fantasy Premier League video and podcast appearance and his Twitter following is under 200. That may change after today, however.

Joe and Luke answer your questions around the SkyFF overhaul, ahead of Saturday's deadline.

They also reveal their own drafts, including a peak at their 'differential XI' teams.

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.

Joe and David look at the best captain picks for FPL Gameweek 26.

Arriving in the midst of the Premier League's winter break, half of this week's fixtures take place this coming weekend, the remaining games the weekend after.

How will this affect FPL managers' captaincy decisions?

Is it better to wait and captain Liverpool assets next week, even though their press conferences will not be until after the deadline?

Or are Man City assets a better choice given we will hear from Pep beforehand? And will the Man City manager actually be forthcoming about which of his strikers starts?
