Welcome to the Gameweek 21 round-up of the Fantasy Football Scout mini-leagues and community competitions, a good one for those who captained Mo Salah while so many other top players were injured, rested or blanked.
FFSCOUT COMMUNITY MEMBERS LEAGUE
Adam Jenkins has regained the lead in our Fantasy Football Scout Community Members mini-league, three points ahead of Kevin Rose (aka FPL Saffer). Last week’s leader Ulrik Varela Greve (aka FPL Viking) drops to fourth.
The table below, courtesy of Mini-League Mate, shows the top 20 leaderboard.

Adam and Kevin are both now in the top six in the world.
Adam and Kevin are also the two in-form managers in the top 20 of the mini-league, each amassing more than 400 points over the last five Gameweeks. Remarkably, Kevin has yet to take a hit this season.
According to Fusen’s FPL Statistico, Son Heung-min (£9.7m) has been his most frequent performer. The South Korean has appeared 19 times in his team averaging 6.6 points per match.
While his faith in Callum Wilson (£6.7m) has been rewarded – the Newcastle talisman producing 87 points over the 13 occasions he’s played in Kevin’s side.

We’re dishing out £2,500-worth of giveaways throughout the season, however only those who have registered a Fantasy Football Scout account (paid or free) will be able to claim a prize. Also, managers must be registered one month in advance of the awarding of a specific prize to be eligible.
The Manager of the Month for January has been awarded to Ed Salinger, who wins a £50 Amazon voucher. Ed, please get in touch with Geoff ([email protected]) to claim your prize.
Five successive green arrows helped Ed climb from 1,560,169 to 70,551 overall. Impressively, he twice achieved Gameweek ranks inside the top 10,000 – the first on his Bench Boost in Double Gameweek 19, and again in the following round of fixtures.
A triple Man City defence and Sadio Mané (£11.9m) helped to catapult him up the leaderboard.
The FFScout Community Members mini-league is still the Best League in FPL based on the average score of the top five teams in each league; our current top five are all in the top 32 overall.
FFSCOUT OPEN-TO-ALL LEAGUE
League code: 5u05vz
Eligibility: Open to all
Kevin Rose (aka FPL Saffer) is also still top of our Fantasy Football Scout mini-league and has increased his lead over Pandin Bruyne to 16 points.
There are currently 49,115 people participating in this mini-league, with at least another ten waiting to be added at the next update.
The FFScout Open-to-All League is now the third Best League in FPL. Our top five are all in the top 46 overall.
They are both on 45 points out of a possible 63, but Aleksander has the better overall rank. He is 31st in our Career Hall of Fame, having had an amazing three top hundred finishes in the last six seasons.
The Norwegian has been interviewed by Joe for his Meet the Manager series.
