Joe and Seb are joined by Ben Crabtree to look at the key issues facing Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of Gameweek 36.
There are just three Gameweeks left of this tricky, pandemic-hit campaign so each transfer and captaincy decision needs to be carefully planned around those remaining fixtures.
There is also the challenge of navigating Blank Gameweek 36, when Chelsea, Arsenal, Leicester and Manchester United players miss out due to FA Cup scheduling.
Luckily, Joe and Seb are joined by former FPL winner Ben to look at the teams and players to spend those final, precious transfers on.
Our trio break down the season run into the top assets by position, with West Ham, Leeds, Liverpool and Everton assets dominating their chat.
Targeting relegated Sheffield United’s porous defence and blunt attack is another key theme to emerge.
For goalkeepers, there is plenty of advice for those like Joe, who have two non-playing shot stoppers going into Gameweek 36. Is it worth a transfer to replace the likes of Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy (£5.2m)?
Leeds midfielder Stuart Dallas’ (£5.3m) out of position classification as a defender makes him a shrewd backline pick, meanwhile Manchester City’s midfield maestros could be worth investment despite the threat of rotation.
The Scoutcast crew’s chat about attackers will be of particular interest to those who have invested in Leicester marksmen Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.3m) or Jamie Vardy (£10.3m). The Foxes have a dire end of season fixture run, meanwhile there is long queue of forwards ready to step in and help propel FPL managers up their mini-leagues.
Joe, Seb and Ben catch up on their progress in Gameweek 35, with fixtures still to play. Ben takes his turn to pick a differential and captaincy and transfer plans ahead of this Friday’s deadline are revealed.
There is also a virtual award ceremony on the show, with Joe showing off the incredible trophy he has won as winner of children's charity Barnardo's FPL Challenge Cup this season. He also gives information about how to donate and support their work supporting and protecting young people.
