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.

Joe and Az are joined by Rich, aka Flapjack, to look ahead to Gameweek 17 and attempt to make sense of an impending fixture pile up in the New Year.

With rates of Covid-19 escalating across UK, the top-flight schedule was left decimated in Gameweek 16. First, Manchester City’s weekend clash with Everton was postponed, then Tottenham’s Wednesday night encounter with Fulham was put back. Both are to be rescheduled at a later date, after a high number of club staff and players contracted the virus recently.

With festive rotation also hitting hard, Fantasy Premier League teams were left threadbare, with all three outfield substitutes needed for those lucky enough to have strong benches.

Our Scoutcast trio digest the latest scheduling developments and how the latest postponements are likely to impact on their carefully laid plans around Gameweek 18’s limited fixtures and Double Gameweek 19.

While some who held their wildcard back in Gameweek 16 were fortunate to have already jettisoned Manchester City and Spurs assets, others were less lucky and were several players shy of a full squad.

Elsewhere the merits of City talisman Kevin De Bruyne (£11.7m) are discussed. Could he once again be a prized asset? Or is he too expensive for his limited open play goal returns?

With the tight turnaround of matches there has not been time for a Gameweek 17 captaincy video. Thankfully the Scoutcast is able to help out, with armband options for the next set of fixtures on the bill. Could this be a chance for Spurs investors to reap rewards?

Fixtures are also frisked and transfer plans are revealed during this episode, which was streamed live on Youtube, during Liverpool’s visit to Newcastle. With all three of the crew captaining Reds midfielder Mohamed Salah (£12.6m), there are a few tense moments during the show.

Meanwhile, the Scoutcast delivers some sad news that Az is stepping down from regular co-hosting duties due to other commitments. This ends a four-year stint regularly joining Joe, Andy, Granville and Mark on the longest running Fantasy Football podcast. Joe’s new regular host will be revealed in the New Year.

Joe and Az are joined by Seb to discuss the key issues for Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of Gameweek 15 and a busy Christmas schedule in the top flight.

The Scoutcast’s planning for Blank and Double Gameweeks in the New Year stepped up a gear this week with the announcement that the League Cup final is set to move. This gives further insight into further blanks and Gameweeks are expected in 2021.

Our trio dissect the latest news and what it means for their early plans for Gameweek 18 limited set of matches and Gameweek 19’s double ups.

In the meantime there is the small matter of Gameweeks 15 to 17 over Christmas to contend with. Joe, Seb and Az reveal the teams they are targeting and players in their plans.

Defenders are firmly on their shopping lists, with an injury to well owned Chelsea left back Ben Chillwell (£6.1m) coinciding with an upturn in form and fixtures for Liverpool’s Andy Robertson (£7.3m) and Trent Alexander Arnold (£7.2m).

Leeds players are also of interest. Attacking intent is certainly not a problem for Marcelo Bielsa’s troops although FPL managers looking for clean sheets may be advised to turn elsewhere. Joe and Az use this part of the show to quiz Seb, who is a fan of the Yorkshire side, about the best assets to bring in.

Elsewhere, Seb takes his turn to pick a differential. After Sam’s audacious selection of Liverpool’s free scoring false nine Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) last week, the pressure is on for our latest guest.

Meanwhile, there are ‘rough with the smooths’ to air and Gameweek 15 transfer and captaincy plans to reveal.

Joe signs off with a special message to all those listeners and viewers who are facing a tough Christmas in this most difficult of years.

Joe is joined by FPL Family’s Sam and Ted Talks FPL’s Ted to look ahead to Gameweek 14 and the impending New Year blank and double Gameweek fixtures.

Fantasy Premier League managers already have plenty to consider with fixtures arriving thick and fast during this busy festive period in the season.

And now they have blank and double Gameweeks to ponder, after the Premier League announced details this week of a limited set of fixtures in Gameweek 18 and a bumper crop of extra games in Gameweek 19.

How FPL managers tackle this tricky period in the season largely depends on their current set up and chip availability.

Joe, Sam and Ted look in detail at the different strategies to consider as well as the best players to target.

Ted is building up a reputation for presenting smart FPL related graphics across social media. We grabbed the opportunity to find out more about his latest graphs, which detail the best chance creators and most obliging defences.

In all the excitement over the New Year double Gameweek, our trio present a timely reminder of the single Gameweek sides that cannot be ignored, most notably Tottenham and Manchester City.

Elsewhere, Sam takes her turn to pick a differential, there are festive fixtures to frisk and captaincy and transfer plans to reveal.

The episode was streamed live on Thursday night during Manchester United’s trip to relegation candidates Sheffield United. With Red Devils star Bruno Fernandes (£11m) captained by Sam and Joe, viewers get to see their live reaction to the midfielder’s pivotal performance during a low scoring Gameweek 13.

Joe and Az are joined by former Fantasy Premier League champion Simon March to assess the key developments of the week.

A last gasp penalty by Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah (£12.3m) against Fulham last time out underlined the value of investing in premium priced midfielders in FPL.

But with strong returns from Tottenham’s Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Leicester’s talisman Jamie Vardy (£10.3m) in Gameweek 12, there is a clear case for continuing to plough funds up top.

Joe, Az and Simon assess the merits of forward line investment, including the re-emergence post injury of Southampton marksman Danny Ings (£8.4m).

There are of course value striker picks, in the likes of Patrick Bamford (£6.3m). But how does the Leeds man compare in consistency of returns.

The pressing need of cheap enablers elsewhere has never been so crucial amid strong returns from expensive assets. Our trio look at the best budget buys, particularly in defence, with an eye on strengthening benches as Christmas rotation draws near.

Liverpool midfielder Diogo Jota (£6.9m) had been among useful picks for managers looking to save money. But with an injury sidelining him for a number of weeks, the Scoutcasters look at likely replacements, for a similar or cheaper price tag.

Meanwhile, this latest episode finds time for all the usual features, with last Gameweek’s highs and lows reviewed, rough with the smooths aired and next four fixtures frisked. The crew also reveal their captaincy and transfer plans for Gameweek 13, with opinion divided on which premium priced player to win the armband.

Joe and Az are joined by FPL FanShow host Conor, aka The FPL Prince, to look ahead to Gameweek 12 and assess the key developments impacting on Fantasy Premier League managers.

On last week’s episode the Scoutcast crew pondered how to fit in all of Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (£12.3m), Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) and Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes (£10.9).

All delivered in Gameweek 11, but so too did the well-owned Tottenham partnership of Son Heung-Min (£9.6m) and Harry Kane (£10.9m), who combined for double digit hauls apiece once again.

Now, Az, Joe and Conor try to work out how FPL managers can squeeze in as many of this quintet as possible.

Cheap differentials in defence are likely to be needed. Our trio look at the merits of some of the highest scoring bargain basement options at the back and consult the FFScout Members Area statistics to try to unearth some hidden gems.

Sacrifices are also likely to be needed in the search for multiple pricey picks. Already almost 80,000 FPL managers have severed ties with Everton’s sensational 11-goal striker Dominic Calvert Lewin (£8.0m). But Toffees fan Conor is certainly not keen on waving goodbye to his team’s star man.

Elsewhere fixtures are frisked, transfers and captaincy plans for Gameweek 12 are revealed and the crew’s very mixed fortunes in Gameweek 11 are reviewed, which proves an uncomfortable experience for Az.

There’s also the small matter of a double Gameweek to look forward to in the New Year, due to West Ham’s FA Cup commitments.

Joe and Az are joined by Karam to look ahead to Gameweek 11 and assess the key challenges facing Fantasy Premier League managers.

Chief among concerns is the postponement of Friday night’s clash between Aston Villa and Newcastle United. There is a chance it could be rearranged within the Gameweek, if not, FPL managers face some tough choices. Should they bench or swap out the likes of Villa talisman Jack Grealish (£7.7m) or Newcastle striker Callum Wilson (£6.5m)?

Our Scoutcast trio also discuss the three most talked about players of the week: Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (£12.2m), Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne (£11.7m) and Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes (£10.9). These midfield picks are showing remarkable consistency but with heft price tags it may be tricky to fit them all in. Can they be ‘covered’ by the likes of Reds midfielder Diogo Jota (£6.6m) and City winger Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m)?

Pep Guardiola’s latest round of roulette is also on the bill. This chat will be of particular interest to those clinging onto City rotation risks such as Raheem Sterling (£11.4).

Meanwhile, Joe, Az and Karam give their top tips for climbing up the rankings ahead of Christmas. Within this section, Karam takes his turn to pick a differential, which garners approval from Joe and Az.

The usual features are also covered in the show, with next four fixtures frisked, rough with the smooths aired and transfer and captaincy plans revealed.
