Fantasy Football Scout Bus Team

In February the guys at Fantasy Football Scout introduced their Bus Team feature. The Bus Team works in addition to the normal Scout picks. It allows the team at Scout to share their early thoughts on the best picks for the following Gameweek. For an insight in to how the Bus Team picks and articles work here is an extract alongside a link to the article in full.

We’ve put together our Scout Picks ‘bus team’ ahead of Double Gameweek 37 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL).

For those who haven’t seen this article series before, it’s essentially a rough, first draft of our regular picks, which get finalised and published much closer to the deadline.

We are limited to a £83.5m budget for our starting XI (making it affordable for those whose team values are low), although the bench options aren’t just unplayable fodder as you might have in your own Free Hit squads.

The final picks will stay as they are and cement our weekly selection based on the Scout Squad long-list entries, midweek minutes and fresh injury updates but this ‘bus team’ – a term coined by the Always Cheating boys – will discuss the players who are likely to be in the running.

Here it is, then: our early thoughts on the runners and riders up for selection in Gameweek 37, followed by the preliminary picks themselves.

The Likely Lads

For the final time in 2021/22, we have a pool of Double Gameweek players to choose from. These ‘doublers’ will no doubt form the backbone of our Scout Picks this week but, unlike in Gameweek 37, we’re very unlikely to cherry-pick 11 FPL assets with two fixtures.

So, we start with the Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Everton options who are likely to make the cut; more on Leicester City and Burnley in a bit.

With Patrick Vieira pledging to take a look at squad and academy players in the run-in, rotation could be an issue with the Eagles. The in-form Wilfried Zaha (£6.8m) looks about the safest bet for a pair of starts, with his benching in Gameweek 35 attributed to knocks picked up from the previous match against Leeds. His only other substitute appearance in 2021/22 also came off the back of an illness. The penalty-taking winger has got eight goals in 13 matches, a period in which no FPL asset under £12.0m has had more shots in the box….
