    Scout picks are for one week only and not for 3 or so weeks. Pickford is a good pick this week but not after for instance.

    Team is ok I think.

    2+1 this week. Usually points to a good week

    Assuming Lukaku captaincy, that's 63 last week leaving The Scout around 1.4 million after week 1. Not. So. Impressive.

    Their GW1 team would have got 63 points.

    The fallacy of the scout picks is that they essentially wildcard every week. There is only 3 players 'retained' from last week.

    Oops you are right. Still not great. Yeah with the amount of attention they get I'd expect them to get much higher scores then they do seeing as it's a weekly wildcard.

    They have a lower budget though.

    They also don't stick to the regulation squad structure. They have 1 sub from each position. 4 Fwds in squad this week.

    3 – same as last week for me.

    I don't think there's much value in the Scout Picks any more, due to reasons pointed out already in the thread.

    Personally found them much more useful years ago before the above and before they started getting far too many opinions each week.

    You mean Andy on the ScoutCast? I don't think he has any say in the Scout Picks.
