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.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Yes

  2. paulfantham
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 3 days ago

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

    1. Les Bleus
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Yep

    2. pressdpm
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Anfield Express usually pretty reliable

  3. Les Bleus
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 3 days ago

    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?

    1. Eddie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      What news on Auba?

  4. pressdpm
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 3 days ago

    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

    1. some witty pun
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

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

  5. Burger

    How we looking?

    Karius
    Coleman, Baines, Kompany
    Salah, Sterling, Zaha, Arnie, Mane
    Laca, Jesus

    Subs: Perez, Lowton, Long

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

    Banker to start soon??

    1. CloudSky
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Bravo you mean? And no. Not needed anymore for a medal.

      1. nevins84

      Bravo a banker**

    3. Andy Ftw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      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.

    4. TallestJohn
      • 1 Year

  11. DV8R
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 3 days ago

    Take a punt on Moreno? Good value

    1. Manani
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      yes if it is 1 match only

    2. subhojit123
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Yes

  12. United84
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 3 days ago

    Sane or KDB?? Already have Sterling and Jesus

    1. DV8R
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      If you can afford KDB without botching your team then get him.

    2. Scotty B
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      KDB

  13. Scotty B
    • 6 Years

    If you guys were going to get any Man City defender and midfielder for the rest of the season who would you get?

    1. some witty pun
      • 6 Years

      Walker

      1. Scotty B
        • 6 Years

    4. TallestJohn
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 3 days ago

      KDB and Mili here

      (although I have money and Mili is a candidate to become Arnie, Shaq or maybe Zaha)

    5. CloudSky
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      A

  15. subhojit123
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 3 days ago

    Ok so a casual discussion... For this week teams of most free hitters look similar. Whom are you guys going as differential option?

    1. some witty pun
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      I dont have any - If I had the balls I would opt for Tosun

    2. CloudSky
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      No one. Balls deep into the template.

    3. nevins84
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Perez..

    4. stat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Moreno

    5. TallestJohn
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 3 days ago

      I've got 3 midfield spots I haven't decided on yet. Gonna go with 3 of Arnautovic, Shaqiri, Zaha, Iwobi, Gudmundsson, Milivojevic.

      1. subhojit123
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 3 days ago

        Anyone considering ramsey?

        1. TallestJohn
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 3 days ago

          I fear he's more on the side of needing rest after picking up that injury against CSKA

          1. subhojit123
            • 1 Year
            6 months, 3 days ago

            Ok... Thanks buddy

  16. Skloppy Kops
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 3 days ago

    Why ao many mention of Lacazette.. Rwmember how we avoided him when he was nailed. Or is it just bcoz he scored last week?

    1. CloudSky
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Many on FH. Good fixture. Seemingly nailed with Arsenes comments. Lack of good striker options.

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      avoided for the long term, it's a one week punt

    3. drokkeh
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      One week only on FH. No Firmino/Auba so Laca is best to partner Jesus is all.

  17. oscarhs
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 3 days ago

    A) Ota, Arnie

    or

    B) Sane, 4.9 defender

  18. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 3 days ago

    Was anyone else really impressed with Moses last night?

    Going to be a tough decision for Southgate with all the RWBs to pick from!

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 3 days ago

          He's Spanish mate, keep up!

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        I'm guessing this is satire...

        1. CloudSky
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 3 days ago

          An attempt.

      5. some witty pun
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 3 days ago

        As a young and bright prospect too - England has a promising future indeed

        1. La Roja

    2. Karan14 - (CWT Balegium)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Better option?

      A) Moreno & Walker/Ota
      B) PVA & Kompany

      Cheers! 🙂

    3. CFM
      • 1 Year

      Ozil a good punt?

      1. Karan14 - (CWT Balegium)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    4. Kalju75
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Opinnions???
      Pickford
      Bellerin-Moreno-Coleman
      Salah(c)-KDB-Sterling-Mane-Mili
      Auba-Jesus

      Mäenpää,Bauer,Crouch,Long

      Still dont know should i pick auba or laca.theres few risks like moreno but it might be good differential if he play.

    5. Hazard is an FPL legend
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Anyone facing this conundrum
      A) sane + Milner
      B) moreno + Kdb

      Which one is better and why??. Equally priced combos

      1. stat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 3 days ago

        I feel like A will get less playing time in total so I'd go for B

      2. Ragabolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Facing it, currently on B just for a gut feeling

        1. Hazard is an FPL legend

          Same mate. Gut says B

      3. Sailboats

        mane

    7. pol
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Sane or Ederson as 3rd city on FH?

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 3 days ago

        I'm going for the higher ceiling, all out attack!

        Sane.

      2. FULHAM 4 LIFE
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 3 days ago

        Sane has a better upside

    8. FULHAM 4 LIFE
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Auba Mahrez Arnie DDG ➡ Jesus Sane Sterling LLoris (for future GWs). Good transfers for a -8?

      1. CloudSky
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 3 days ago

        Can you do only first three?

        1. FULHAM 4 LIFE
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 3 days ago

          yeah I wish I could, need the DDG down to Lloris for the .5. I think id prefer Lloris for the run in anyways tbh

          1. CloudSky
            • 2 Years
            6 months, 3 days ago

            Do Auba + Mahrez -> Jesus + Sterling and call it a day.

      2. ZICO SENNA
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 3 days ago

        Not liking those moves much, i’d definitely move on Mahrez though.

      3. FULHAM 4 LIFE
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 3 days ago

        cheers both

    9. Nanoelektronicar

      Do you think Chambers will play this week?

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 3 days ago

        Even for Kosc two weeks without a game is a little too much, I wouldn't count on Chambers.

    10. paulfantham
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 3 days ago

      Can someone convince me that Welbeck instead of Lacazette is a bad idea?

      1. Ibracadabra
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 3 days ago

        ARS striker doing my head in. Laca/Welbeck and even still considering Auba despite Wenger comments as my rival has him and is chasing me.

    11. V for viduka
        6 months, 3 days ago

        who else is considering Tosun. I al but is he nailed??

      • Rash

        Sanchez owners (all 3.7% of you) are you keeping?

        Need to decide whether it's him or son who makes way for city mid... (will be bringing in eriksen later if I sell son this week)

      • Eriksen Maestro
          6 months, 3 days ago

          Hi guys already on -4:

          (DDG)

          Fernandez, VVD, ogbonna, (Duffy, Mbemba)

          Salah (vc), Sterling (C), Shaqiri, (Lingard, Willian)
