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.

Sam is joined this time by Nick and Adam from the FPL Experiment Podcast. They look back on the 2020/21 season, hand out some awards, discuss the biggest disappointments, their favourite moments and look ahead to the 2021/22 season.

Joe and Seb take stock of a season like no other for Fantasy Premier League managers.

After 38 Gameweeks the Covid-19 ravaged 2020/21 campaign is finally over. The health crisis has severely impacted on the schedule and player availability. FPL managers saw the first triple Gameweek in more than a decade. For much of the season they had to endure a slow drip feed of matches over several days to ensure more fixtures can be televised.

The lack of fans also played its part, with traditional home and away form often consigned to the bin.

While tough to navigate, it has had significant highs to couple with the lows.

Trusted heavy hitters, such as Harry Kane (£11.9m) and Mohammed Salah (£12.9m) often delivered when selected as captain. There was also a wealth of budget options, with Leeds’ promoted players among the stars.

In this final Scoutcast episode of the campaign Joe and Seb review their own performance amid the season’s chaos, consider wider lessons to learn for all managers as well as answer the community’s questions.

For the final time they also look back on their Gameweek scores and showcase the tales of woe and joy in a last look at Rough with the Smooth.

For Joe key lessons to emerge include the importance of having a strong start and be as flexible as possible with transfers. While Seb ponders why he often ignored, his team, Leeds’ best players.

There are also strong thoughts on how FPL managers can deal with the noise of social media and the fear of missing out.

Joe also explains why this tricky campaign ended being his most satisfying yet across his career and why he’ll be paying close attention to his ‘unfashionable players’ tables next time out.

The Scoutcast will be back next season when Joe and Seb will be joined by a new regular co-host. Look out for further news ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

Thanks to everyone who has watched, listened, commented and featured on this season’s Scoutcast.

Joe and Seb are joined by Karam look at the key issues facing Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of Gameweek 38.

It’s been a tough year, with the Covid-19 pandemic impacting on all walks of life. Top flight football has been no exception, with fans unable to attend matches for much of the campaign and players forced to isolate for periods.

The season has been tough for FPL managers to navigate. But it has also provided a welcome distraction for many.

Now, after 38 long, arduous weeks the final set of fixtures is here and Joe, Karam and Seb are on hand to guide viewers and listeners over the last hurdle.

The Scoutcast crew take in the prospects for teams with something to play for, most notably a seat among Europe’s elite in the Champions League. Winning is vital and lots of goals will be needed for the likes of top captaincy candidate Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) and the rest of his Liverpool team mates.

For other teams there is still pride to play for, as well as some extra cash for final league placings. Leeds' first Premier League home game in front of fans for 17 years, against West Brom, looks particularly enticing.

Meanwhile, West Ham’s Michail Antonio (£6.6m) and Burnley striker Chris Wood (£6.5m) offer intriguing alternative options for FPL managers to turn to.

More differentials are considered, when Joe looks at his ‘unfashionable players’ list once again, to find further low owned gems with strong points potential. Over the last few weeks this list correctly predicted strong returns from the likes of Manchester City’s recent hattrick hero Ferran Torres (£7.0m) and Arsenal’s impressive youngster Gabriel Martinelli (£4.9m), who scored midweek.

There is mixed fortunes for the community in the penultimate Rough with the Smooth round up. This contrasts with Joe, Seb and Karam’s performance in Gameweek 37, as just a handful of points separated them.

This latest episode finishes off with the crew revealing their final transfer and captaincy plans of the season.

The Scoutcast will be back next week for the final show of the season to look at the lessons they’ve learned and their ideas for FPL glory in 2021/22.

Joe and Seb look at the key issues facing Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of Gameweek 37.

The remaining two Gameweeks are special, with home fans returning to grounds across the Premier League. But can their return help their teams achieve season run in glory, or prove a hindrance?

Armed with the FFScout members area’s comparison tools, Joe and Seb look to find out how a crowd alters teams play, to see if FPL managers can get an advantage at the tail end of the campaign.

Could it be that players are keener to shoot from distance with the roar of the crowd to encourage them? Joe and Seb's research looks at where home strikers shoot from and why Everton, in particularly, are in desparate need of the Goodison faithful.

A common theme over the latter part of the season has been the emergence of strong mid-priced midfielders. Jesse Lingard (£6.6m) and Diogo Jota (£6.9m) had been leading this charge. But with form and injury denting their appeal respectively, the Scoutcast crew look at the new guard of value alternatives in the centre of the park. Leeds and Newcastle assets look particularly appealing.

Due to the tight turnaround of fixtures there is no time for a captaincy video this week. Luckily, the Scoutcast can step in to assess the best candidates for Gameweek 37. The race for the golden boot, home advantage and defensive trends among relegated clubs look to be key to their decisions.

Elsewhere, there’s a bumper rough with the smooth edition this week thanks to Gameweek 36’s incredible turn of events, particularly among those who brought in the week’s unlikely goal scoring heroes.

Joe and Seb’s own contrasting fortunes in the last set of matches are looked at and the final brace of fixtures are looked at in detail.

Meanwhile,  Seb takes his turn to pick a differential and captaincy and transfer plans ahead of tonight’s deadline are revealed.

The next Scoutcast is scheduled to be live streamed via our Youtube channel at 5:30pm on Thursday 20 May, when Joe, Seb and Karam will help FPL managers prepare for the final set of fixtures of 2020/21.

This week Sam is joined by FPL Nymfria to look back on Triple Gameweek 35 and ahead to Blank Gameweek 36. Sam and Nym recorded this ahead of the final 2 matches of Gameweek 36 between Aston Villa and Everton, and Man United and Liverpool.

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.

This week FPLFamily's Sam is joined by Adam, Nick and Greg from the FPL Experiment Podcast. They discuss TRIPLE Gameweek 35 and look back on what turned out to be Blank Gameweek 34.

Joe and Seb are joined by Karam to look at the key issues facing Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of Gameweek 35.

The fans’ protest at Old Trafford at the weekend served up an array of new permutations for the Scoutcast crew to ponder as they prepare for Double Gameweek 35.

The postponement of the fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool, means Jurgen Klopp’s troops are likely to play twice within one of the next two Gameweeks. Meanwhile, the Red Devils look certain to avoid a blank in Gameweek 36, making their assets even more attractive.

As Joe, Seb and Karam await confirmation of the scheduling changes they analyse the different scenarios to prepare for.

Chip strategy is crucial to this and fortunately each of the Scoutcasters has one chip left to deploy for the week ahead, which features a raft of teams playing twice.

Joe discusses his Bench Boost plans for Gameweek 35, while Karam and Seb reveal the 15 players that have made their Free Hit squads.

The crew take a deep dive into the numbers of the best premium picks and low budget gems, not just for the weekend’s fixtures but also for the season run in.

With Michail Antonio (£6.4m) back from injury for West Ham it looks like David Moyes’ side could be key to FPL managers’ plans for the tail end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Elsewhere, Rough with the Smooth features a smooth return to form for a serial Top 10K finisher, the remaining fixtures are frisked and Karam takes his turn to pick a differential.

Captains are revealed and this week’s Scoutcast trio look back on their contrasting fortunes in a postponement ravaged Gameweek 34.
