FFS Cup

The Scout Cups Reminder

With 13 days remaining until domestic action resumes, we thought we’d remind you of the two Fantasy Football Scout cups that are still open to enter.

As mentioned last week, we have launched our 14th open-to-all tournament, along with a tenth Members competition.

We are offering up £350 in Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk vouchers for the final top three managers in both tournaments.

Non-members can sign up to the open tournament here.

Our members can sign up to both tournaments, via entry forms here and here.

Timetable

The qualifying round for both Cups was Gameweek 29, with the first round running in Gameweek 30.

It’s not too late to get involved, though, if you haven’t done so already.

Fantasy managers can enter their teams from now right up to 10.30am on Monday March 27 – ie, a week today – when we’ll stop entry and make the first round draws shortly after.

The first round will consist of 512 teams and, as usual, all the previous winners who enter will gain a bye into the first round draw, where they will join the top scorers from Gameweek 29.

Previous winners must enter with the same usernames to gain their bye.

Both these cup competitions will be played out according to the following Gameweek schedule:

      Double Boro or double United defense for DGW 34?

        Neither. One of each for me.

          Same, one of each for me as well.

            Maybe Boro. Valdés and Chambers most probably

            I've been trawling through the player form stats searching for a glimmer of a left-field choice for the run-in.
            I have to say I'm not overly inspired and with Arsenal. ManU & Southampton with an extra fixture I was hoping for someone amongst that trio and barring Redmond, Tadic & maybe JWP I've not been inspired.
            Any lurking blind side choices on your wish/watch list?

                I hereby let the bandwagon commence!

                    Jeez, didn't see that one coming Lawro. 🙂

                  I don't know if this counts but I'm looking at Borini. At 5.1 he's a good enabler for BB 37 and easily benchable in a 3-5-2 other weeks. Seems to be nailed and could pop up with a goal. Defoe is obviously the best Sunderland option but that 2.7m could make a big difference in the rest of your team.

                      Without Defoe I'd only be tempted Pickford and a defender

                        I'll definitely have Pickford.

                    • Gnu
                        3 months, 9 days ago

                        Could be, I've had Defoe since GW7 and I'm concerned about Sunderland scoring. I may stick with him but Borini doesn't appeal much.
                        Long might be a shout at 6.1m regardless of whether your getting a Saints midfielder, just see more goals.
                        All said and done Borini has performed before in the relegation run-in for Sunderland so I wouldn't totally rule him out.

                        I was looking at Januzaj for the same reasons.

                    • Gnu
                        3 months, 9 days ago

                        Albrighton & Downing maybe!

                      • Moosie the Staggie
                          3 months, 9 days ago

                          Don't know if it's left field but no doubt I will probably get Walcott for the run in again

                          1. nkhoughton
                              3 months, 9 days ago

                              Sane is a good alternative in the bracket

                            • Gnu
                                3 months, 9 days ago

                                At 7.3m he's hard to resist, just want to see Arsenal playing like a team again but worth a punt.

                                Not really. I'm looking at JWP too.

                                Too much rotation in United midfield.

                                Walcott maybe but risky!

                                1. Gnu
                                    3 months, 9 days ago

                                    Not very inspiring is it SS?
                                    May all change after next week when a few bandwagons are rustled up 🙂

                                  If people are planning on using BB before 37 to maximise TC in 37 wouldn't the Arsenal Southampton doubles be better for BB as their better fixtures and teams compared to 34

                                  1. Jayv807
                                      3 months, 9 days ago

                                      definitely a possibility

                                        3 months, 9 days ago

                                        Alexis a better TC choice that week?

                                        1. nkhoughton
                                            3 months, 9 days ago

                                            There's loads of choices in 37 like kun or hazard costa Vardy etc

                                            1. Moosie the Staggie
                                                3 months, 9 days ago

                                                Makes it harder to pick the right one imo

                                                1. Pierce34
                                                    3 months, 9 days ago

                                                    Last year was so easy in hindsight - either Sanchez or Aguero in DGW34 were such obvious choices.

                                                    1. nkhoughton
                                                        3 months, 9 days ago

                                                        You not think aguero in 37 not obvious?

                                                        1. Moosie the Staggie

                                                            Jesus could well be back by then

                                                            1. nkhoughton
                                                                3 months, 9 days ago

                                                                Of course he can but there's Alexis Ibra Kane hazard costa Vardy etc

                                                            Oh yeah there's more choice definitely but you will struggle with captain that week regardless

                                                            34 or 35 sucks regardless

                                                            37 is best week

                                                                Go for it then. Hope it works out well for you.
                                                                So much is luck with chips anyway

                                                        3 months, 9 days ago

                                                        Who to captain out of Alli, Mane, Siggy, Alonso or Valencia? Never would normally captain a defender but slim pickings this week

                                                            Never a defender imo. Alli has Burnley who are very solid at home. Mane's a beast at home and Liverpool are up for the big games, so him imo.

                                                            1. Moosie the Staggie

                                                                Mane for me too

                                                              I have Hazard and I am seriously considering Alonso. Got to stop hitting the crossbar some day.
                                                              Something like the 21 from GW 21 would be nice. 🙂

                                                                      I just cant justify losing value on Sanchez or Mane with decent fixtures from now until 34 and including 34 to fund Ibra. I can find Ibra with 6 upfront and two fodder. Seems pointless.
                                                                      Anyone saying nay to Ibra for 34?

                                                                      2. Sweetboi

                                                                            1. Sweetboi

Siggy (midd h), Antonio (hull a), King (soton a). Fair enough after soton King is probably a sell but with only 0.6itb it's not enough to move to Alli. I'm actually thinking of selling Foster but to who. Or should I just save my ft. As you can tell I'm pretty confused. Thoughts & thanks.

                                                                                                                                    My point is if you have both TC and BB chips available the use of TC will depend on the Arsenal DGW.

                                                                                                                                    I blew my TC on Kun the idiot. I think either of Ibra or Alexis will outscore that gw27 haul easily. So whoever still has the TC can easily get a good haul.

                                                                                                                                    1. athreya

                                                                                                                                        Personally I would use TC in one of 34 or 35 and BB in 37 just to protect my rank in 37 and to avoid confusion over who to TC in 37.

It just didnt pan out.... Sanchez has the same fixtures now in 37..... If i had all the chips it would be BB34 WCsotars game TC37

                                                                                                                                      This idea has been the subject of debate. If you can't really field great bench players in DGW37, could be a good shout. Fill up your bench with Mid and CRY DGW34 players,most of which you would only want on your bench anyway, bring in Ibra and Valencia and use your bench boost. Allows you to keep your good single week players while taking a punt on the DGW teams via your bench players.

                                                                                                                                      Another option would be to use it when Arsenal/SOU have their double game week. But if you are struggling with SV, that may not work for you.

                                                                                                                                      If you have a good TV/SV and plan on fielding 15 DGW players while avoiding any real cheapo/fodder type picks. DGW37 is still probably the best time to use the BB for this case.

                                                                                                                                      1. kenzo.

                                                                                                                                          i will be WCíng the week of the ARS-SOT game so BB not possible then

I.e you can maximise your starting 11 for the run in using your WC and have fodder on the bench for the most part so you can have as many good players for DGW37 as possible.

They do have high individual ownership but probably going to have low combined ownership.
                                                                                                                                                              - Dont take unnecessary risks when there are obvious picks available.

Ceiling is low but can help to gain ranks if and when they do well. Someone like Bertrand, Rose or Mustafi can do well in coming weeks. Even Mawson looks like he'll score 2-3 more goals before season ends.

Sanchez Kane Lukaku Ibra all in the same team is going to be hard to fit. Someone's going to have to miss out.

I'll probably hold Gab even if he's injured as I got him in for DGW, but yeah Antonio's a concern. But he's a beast so hopefully he'll be back within two weeks.

I'll probably only do this if there's absolutely nothing else to do or else in GW34 itself...

As the season went on I am doing fairly badly in 3 of them so have devoted less effort to them as a result.

                                                                                                                                                                                            I just want to win my H2H league which is very tight in FPL any decent rank is beyond me now.

Otherwise, I wouldn't do it this week. You've got Eriksen already and Spurs play at Burnley, which may not yield many goals anyway. Maybe swap Mane for Alli after Liverpool play Bournemouth in GW31. Of course, if you have a spurs defender, you'll want to keep an eye on any Kane if you are interested in bringing him in when healthy. wouldn't want to max out on spurs players, as that will require two transfers to get Kane in (and you'd have to choose which spurs player to drop, which usually results in the 50/50/90 rule)

Then have 2 FTs and time to consider your options.

Maybe time to open the wallet and bring Walker or Alonso in? Painful I know, but I'm in a similar boat and there is a real danger we know the price of everything but the value of nothing lol 😉

That guy is edging towards a flippin' monster haul and his top 10k ownership is scary. We think nothing of a a 6.8 striker or milf, I'm so worried about him I'm stumping up the wedge lol - Walker too.

If I dont add Costa this week, then Aguero to Ibra next week will be my move.

Kun could be a decent captain option this week. I'd lose one of your Liv mids if anything. Maybe cout to Pedro or Sane and see what you can do with snoddy with whatever you have left. Then just do Kun to Ibra when you want.

Switch near the dbgw then .. those moves look good. ..may get De Roon as bench fodder too... costa is a good cap option vs palace

Thats probably the only reason to get him in to be honest, dont have any proper CAP this week and he is likely to be popular, can do some damage if he manage to get couple of goals

Costa hasn't scored big for most of the year anyway.

I fell into this trap when I didn't cap Alexis v HUL, thinking their defence had improved etc etc etc lol 😉

So will mostly try to pick the most important players. Have Sterling and will get valencia. Ibra, zaha and one of Downing/ Ramirez will be my picks along with Fabio.

Defence looks strong & i'm guessing you'd rotate your MF & Strikers too based on fixtures. My humble advice is for you to figure out which system would you want to play? 4-3-3 / 4-4-2 / 3-4-3 / 3-5-2 & then make a decision on the players.
