The Scout Squad is a weekly article in which our regular panelists attempt to pick out the best Fantasy Premier League (FPL) options for the upcoming Gameweek.
This is a precursor to the Scout Picks, which will arrive ahead of Saturday’s deadline.
Our in-house team of Sam, Marc, Tom and Neale have each been explaining their notable Gameweek 5 inclusions and omissions in the article below.
MORE ABOUT THE SCOUT SQUAD
The focus is only on the upcoming Gameweek with the Scout Squad, so there’s no medium-term planning involved.
The players who get the most votes are much more likely to make the Scout Picks, although the final XI can’t exceed £83.0m. Occasionally, therefore, cheaper alternatives have to be found.
Each of our writers must meet the following requirements for this feature:
- 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
