If the charges of violent conduct and serious foul play are not overturned, the pair will miss the trip to Charlton on August 23, plus the home encounter with Watford on August 26, then, most crucially, the Old Trafford clash against Tottenham on September 9.

Despite this, it still seems certain both men will have their punishments downgraded to yellow cards, which would effectively clear Rooney and leave Scholes to serve a one-match suspension for the Charlton clash as he had already been cautioned against the Portuguese champions.
So pick up Rooney if you can spare the 15 bucks/pounds/euros/units. I know you weren't going to pick Scholes anyway as he is fantasy poison.
