There was little-to-no chance of anyone catching Adam in either league as we entered into Gameweek 38 but there was plenty of movement in the places directly below our champion, as we will discuss in our end-of-season review.
Fantasy Football Scout League
In our free-to-all league, Adam finished 70 points clear of runner-up Andrew Green.
Andrew leapt from fourth to second on the final day and finished third overall in the world, with his final-day captaincy of Sadio Mane helping him to a Gameweek 38 score of 78.
This wasn’t Andrew’s first ever top 1k finish, with our FFS league silver medallist having ranked 525th in 2012/13.
What our first two had in common was that they both used their Triple Captain chip in Double Gameweek 25, each manager successfully backing Sergio Aguero.
Jay and Tom had identical chip strategies – Wildcard in Gameweek 17, Free Hit in Gameweek 32, Wildcard in Gameweek 34, Bench Boost in Gameweek 35 and Triple Captain in Gameweek 36 – and finished inside the top 1k for the first time.
Sean had previously finished 923rd in 2014/15 and has four other top 5k finishes to his name.
The average scores of our top five meant that the Fantasy Football Scout league – renamed ‘Get Well Soon Joe’ earlier this week – finished the season as the world’s best (see below).
A very well done to those managers in particular.
Fantasy Football Scout Members’ League
Adam’s winning margin in our members’ league was a whopping 99 points, a sign of how dominant he has been this season given that runner-up
Tore Bjørheim finished a superb 18th in the world.
Tore, like Andrew Green in our free-to-all league, only took two points hits all season.
Tore and Conor each scored 73 points on the final day, with both captaining Manchester City assets and benefitting from the 15-point hauls of Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Ted Wickman crept into fifth place on Sunday, despite a blank for captain Mohamed Salah.
All of our top five played their Free Hit in Gameweek 32, Wildcard in Gameweek 34 and Bench Boost in Gameweek 35.
Only nine points separated fifth and tenth, with Dino Papadopoulos just clinging on to a top ten finish.
Fabio Borges, third in our Live Hall of Fame coming into Gameweek 38, finished eighth in our members’ league and 95th in the world – that being his second successive top 1k finish.
Our members’ league was the third-best in the world this season based on the average scores of our top five – again, a big congratulations goes out to these managers.
Mods and Cons League
A special shout-out to Rotation’s Alter Ego, who finished top our mini-league for moderators and contributors.
Ted overhauled Mark Sutherns‘ 27-point lead on the final day, with his Gameweek 38 score of 87 points (eight of his 11 players registered a clean sheet and/or attacking returns) also propelling him inside the top 1k for the first time in 2018/19.
Ted ended with an overall rank of 633 and was the runner-up in our second FFS Cup competition of the year.
Beset by red flags going into Gameweek 38, Mark took an eight-point hit and ended up dropping out of the top 1,000 but added one more top 5k finish – his ninth overall – to his name after another excellent campaign.
Sky Sports FFScout League
Away from FPL, Andy Luckhurst was the winner of our Sky league.
Andy finished 11 points clear of runner-up Kieran O’Keefe and finished 12th on the overall leaderboard.
Kieran and Reyhan Iqbal, who finished second and third in our above league, were ranked 15th and 16th in the world in the Sky game.
Scout contributor Adam Hopcroft finished tenth in our Sky league and 53rd overall.
A very well done to our winners and to the managers who pushed them hard all season.
