Fantasy Football Scout
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.

How important is a good Gameweek 1 to the success or failure of an Fantasy Premier League season?

This and other season start questions are among the issues tackled by Joe, Andy and Neale in this latest Scoutcast episode.

The football season and much of life as we know it may be on hiatus, but the Scoutcast crew are still on hand to consider the pressing issues facing Fantasy managers.

Here they look back at Gameweek 1 and their biggest successes and failures as they met the challenge of getting their 2019/20 season on track.

They look at how to select an early season bandwagon, the best bench decisions and whether big at the back is a good way to kick off a Fantasy campaign.

Neale and Andy also talk about how a hacking incident forced them to make some uncomfortable changes to their teams.

But this episode isn’t entirely about looking back.

Our trio find time at the end to chat about Ragabolly’s excellent Virtual FPL game, which has attracted almost 3,000 players.

While Andy is riding high in the league by missing transfers, Joe and Neale are considering a wildcard - due to a poor early start to the current, virtual campaign.
