The Scout helps Fantasy Premier League managers build their 15-player squads ahead of Gameweek 1 with some off-the-shelf solutions.
Own three installments
With a combined cost of £36.5 million, Mohamed Salah (£13.0 million), Kevin De Bruyne (£12.0 million) and Harry King (£11.5m) represents more than a third of managers’ £100m budgets.
The trio were ranked among the top seven players of the previous season.
And all of them have been quick to get the scoresheet on their clubs’ pre-season friendlies, cementing their claims to a role in early squads.
Is it possible to own all three without weakening your team?
Scouts are looking at how best to balance the budget in order to achieve this.
Brentford David Ray (£4.5 million) and Ellery Balcombe (£4.0m) for just £8.5m ahead of an impressive array of opponents.
Bees face only one of the top six players in the final chapter in the first eight weeks.
Despite having the three big hitters in attack, there is still room for the famous defenders with premium prices Trent Alexander Arnold (£7.5 million) and Joao Cancelo (£7.0 million).
The duo were also placed among the top seven scorers of the 2021/22 Fantasy and are the two most-possessed defenders of the season as a result.
They have schedules to make big returns from the start of 2022/23. Liverpool and Manchester City face one of the six best players from last season in their first seven matches.
Arsenal right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu Wolverhampton Wanderers johnny (both £4.5m) are among the leading budget candidates given their early favorites.
Arsenal’s first five games
Their capabilities on both ends of the field allow managers to start each week early in a four-man defense.
while, Nico Williams Provides very useful support on the seat.
Welshman is one of the few starters with a super low cost of just £4.0m following his move from Liverpool to Nottingham Forest.
Salah and De Bruyne are joined by three midfielders, each costing less than £6.0m.
Wolves Pedro Netto (£5.5 million) and the Aston Villa winger Leon Bailey (£5.0m) could provide solid value in an early 4-4-2 setup.
Pele’s goal against Manchester United
Both starred during pre-season, with Neto scoring three goals and Bailey twice, while the latter leading the Wolves winger with two strokes to one.
According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), four of the Wolves’ first six matches score only two, as do Villa’s first three matches.
Andreas Pereira (£4.5m) Soared in ownership after moving from Manchester United to Fulham.
The Brazilian, who is expected to play an advanced central role for his new team, can be found in more than 23 per cent of teams. He is the most selected midfielder in the sub-£8.0m category, while Neto is second at 20 per cent.
In the front, Kane takes his place by his side Gabriel Jesus (£8.0 million), the most possessed player in Fantasy 2022/23.
The Brazilian Arsenal is found in more than 60 per cent of teams thanks to three goals and an assist in his appearances in three games during the summer.
Arsenal have a long string of nice opponents, with six of their first eight games scoring just two goals in Roosevelt.
Leeds Sam Greenwood (£4.5m), meanwhile, is a budget-friendly enabler who can sit on the bench and help provide cash for star strikers.
tomorrow: Salah, Kane and an excellent defense
