FFS Cup

FFS Paddy Power Cup – The Last Sixteen Draw

Next up, we roll out the draw for the last 16 in the Fantasy Football Scout Paddy Power Cup VII. Site regulars such as Wild Rover and JMS remain in with a shout of silverware. Both have avoided world number one Iyad Zahlan – he is up against Jon Griffiths, who takes on the role of underdog, with a rank around the 52,000 mark.

For those still involved, it’s worth knowing that the last eight will qualify automatically for the Fantasy Football Scout Shield, where they will meet the final eight from the Members Cup, which starts in January.

The FFS Shield has its own prizes and is played out over the final Gameweeks of the season. No pressure, then…

                                        I really want to captain Silva, but anything under 8 points would seem pretty disappointing. Should I leave it on him, or go with Suarez, Defoe, or RVP?

                                                      I’m forced to add from these 3 games to my accumulator so any help would be appreciated

                                                      Its obvious that i should place 3 home wins but does any1 feel that any of these teams could/will draw?

Tevez (way more explosive and i have a feeling his gametime will increase without nasri but you never know)

I already done Giroud to Tevez this week so just gonna hold onto Fellani this week and do something similar next week...double transfer him and Rafaef out for Bale and Lowton.

I don't know whether its correct to sell Suarez or not, but if you see the profile of people who are selling they usually would have got him after GW13 and the people who've owned him from before that and have got points from Suarez in the past are more reluctant to sell and in many cases may keep for a few weeks longer .(Ofcourse losing or gaining vallue also counts) But this seems to be a phenomenon which you see really often here - liking a player due to previous performances with them.
