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, itโ€™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, thenโ€ฆ

1 ange1range1 Vs. Lardy Man
2 JMS Vs. Perchinho
3 Wild rover Vs. Kenncam
4 Donaldo Vs. MileHigh
5 Tdubb05 Vs. Mr.KK
6 ricky smokes lets go Vs. Green_Libero
7 legriff Vs. Giavara555
8 Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad Vs. RedOranjePey

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

    I am sure this has been asked before but dont know who to take fellaini out for.
    A: fellaini >> yaya....and next week will do sess + rafael >> bale + hughes
    B: fellaini + sess >> silva + brunt (for a hit) and next week silva >> bale
    C: fellaini + berbs >> brunt + tevez (for a hit) and next week sess + rafael >> bale + hughes (for another hit)

    Just really confused about yaya vs silva (both have gametime but yaya is moving forward when nasri injured, then he is better value). Tevez (way more explosive and i have a feeling his gametime will increase without nasri but you never know)

    Like most i’m trying to decide what to do with Fellaini. I see this as a really important decision as loads have Fellaini so the right more could be crucial. I have 2 FT and 0.4m in the bank.

    Begs / Jaask
    Baines, Enrique, Nelsen, Demel, Shorey
    Santi, Michu, Mata, Fellaini, Punchy,
    RVP, Suarez, Fletcher

    I’m thinking either

    a) Fellaini & Enrique > Bale & Davies(swansea)
    b) Fellaini & Enrique > Silva & Clark(villa)
    c) Fellaini & Fletcher > (Cheap sub 5.5m mid & Tevez

    In options b & c I would change Santi > Bale next week.

            See that makes sense. 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.

    I think the season ticker should be viewable from two different perspectives...attacking returns and defensive returns.
    e.g. Team at home to Swansea always have a blue box but it's good for the attackers but not for the defenders....other times it's vica versa
