Who are the best player picks for Gameweek 8 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL)?
Fantasy Football Scout contributors Sam, Neale, Tom and Az each have their own ideas ahead of Friday’s deadline, revealing their thoughts below.
The postponement of three Premier League matches and the absence of Messrs Salah, Alexander-Arnold, Diaz, James et al means there is a smaller pool of players to choose from, so we’ve got more consensus selections than usual – especially up front.
ABOUT THE SCOUT SQUAD
In this series, our four resident writers each propose an 18-man squad of Fantasy players with the focus solely on the upcoming Gameweek.
Their selections serve as a long list for the Scout Picks, as the players nominated will then be narrowed down to a squad of 15 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83.0m) for our final weekly selection ahead of Saturday’s deadline.
Each writer must meet the following requirements:
- At least one sub-£5.0m goalkeeper
- At least one sub-£5.0m defender
- At least one sub-£6.0m midfielder
- At least one sub-£7.0m forward
- No more than three players from the same club
