FFS Cup

Fantasy Football Scout Cup – The Last 16

Our open-to-all Fantasy Premier League Cup competition is edging towards its conclusion with just 16 managers left to battle it out in the sixth round.

Always Captain Kun, who is 23rd in the overall rankings, remains the hot favourite as the tournament’s highest placed manager. He already has a top 500 finish back in 2014/15.

The decision to Bench Boost in Gameweek 34’s fifth-round tie against Norman Conquest netted an impressive 107 points and helped him win by a 40-point margin. His chief stars were Manchester United’s Chris Smalling, Burnley’s Johann Berg Guðmundsson and his captain Harry Kane, who all delivered double-digit returns.

BroTown_Tindersticks, who is ranked 96,678, faces the daunting task of taking on the cup favourite. Both have their Free Hit and Triple Captain chips left, with the former likely to be deployed by both.

The competition’s second highest placed manager N@th (rank 1,247) has a far trickier encounter. He has been drawn against Dmcqt, who is just 1,712 places behind him and one of six remaining competitors to boast a top 10,000 rank.

N@th’s 108 score in round five proved too much for kevcar’s tally of 73, while Dmcqt had a far closer match with The Matadors, who he edged out 95 to 91. In terms of chips, Dmcqt only has a Free Hit remaining, while N@th has both his Free Hit and Triple Captain chips at his disposal.

The competition’s lowest placed manager Meribenige’s score of 78 in the previous round was just enough to see off Bilbo Baggins (rank 14,968), who could only muster 66 points.

But the 296,8181-ranked minnow will need to ramp up his giant-killing skills to defeat 1,522 placed Batmaniac in the sixth round. This task is made especially difficult as Meribenige only has a Bench Boost chip left and has already taken two hits.

Batmaniac, meanwhile, has both his Free Hit and Triple Captain chips to call on. It seems likely that the former is being deployed and tinkering already underway, given no transfers have been flagged up for his team, and he has 6.1 in the bank.

The full fifth round results can be found here, while the draw for the last sixteen can be found here.

      Please help.

      Lowton Tomkins VVD
      Salah Arnie Tarroll
      Auba Jesus

      DDG Elliot Alonso Maguire Willian Mahrez Wilson

      Mahrez to Sterling worth -8?

      Thanks.

        So the general consensus is that Frimino won't start tomorrow?

            Yep

              Anfield Express usually pretty reliable

              For those on a FH, do you guys think it’s best to go with a 3-5-2 formation given the news on Auba and Firmino? Apart from Jesus, i don’t see many options up top.

              Maybe something like:
              Mane Salah Sterling Sane Zaha
              Jesus Tosun

              What do you think?

                Thoughts on my FH side?

                Pickford
                Mustafi - Kiko - Van Dijk
                Sterling - De Bruyne - Salah - Mane
                Jesus - Lacazette - Deeney

                3.9 - Lowton - Loftus Cheek - 3.9

                    I think theres ways to upgrade Kiko - maybe downgrade VVD to Moreno or Klavan

                        Is it true Ederson is 4 PL appearances from qualifying for a PL winners medal...

                        Banker to start soon??

                                  Ederson? Or Bravo?

                                  Either way I believe the clubs can distribute the medals how they want these days, so no app requirements.

                                  But I do reckon Bravo has a chance of playing some PL games before season end.
