FanTeam

Use our Members’ Area to help win money with FanTeam

Fantasy Football Scout are joining forces with FanTeam in 2019/20, with this latest article looking at some of the key stats in our Members’ Area that could help you win big.

There’s a whopping €250,000 in prizes on offer with FanTeam this season, with €50,000, €25,000 and €12,000 going to the Fantasy managers who finish first, second and third respectively.

It’s not just those with a podium finish who are handsomely rewarded.

A top-20 finish guarantees a four-figure sum, while FanTeam even pays out if you are among the first 1,250 managers in the world.

FanTeam is also offering additional weekly and monthly prizes to sweeten the deal.

The full prize breakdown is as follows:

Competing on multiple fronts in the Fantasy world can be a time-consuming and difficult task, particularly when the rules differ drastically from one game to the next.

The beauty of FanTeam is that the scoring rules and player price structure are very similar to Fantasy Premier League, give or take the odd small difference.

Seasoned FPL managers should have no problem in adjusting to FanTeam and running a squad, then, with its familiar scoring system.

For those who consider themselves dab hands at FPL and want to reap the rewards from their expertise, FanTeam offers a real opportunity for a cash windfall.

The familiar-looking scoring system is as follows:

In the remainder of this piece, we will look at some of the Members’ Area tools you can use to help you make informed decisions on your squad.

You can sign up as a Fantasy Football Scout Member today for the equivalent of just £1.75 per month, with all the benefits listed in this article.

Goal Threat

The points awarded for goals scored by outfielders in FanTeam are the same as they are in FPL: four for strikers, five for midfielders and six for defenders.

Fantasy managers can access a whole host of underlying goal threat statistics in our Members’ Area, two examples of which – accessed via the Goal Threat and Expected tabs in Player Stats – are given below:

Above: midfielders ranked by attempts on goal in the last four Gameweeks of 2018/19.

Above: midfielders ranked by expected goals (xG) in the last four Gameweeks of 2018/19.

With there being no Bonus Points System in FanTeam, Mohamed Salah is arguably even more attractive – the Egyptian is famously not well rewarded by bonus in FPL, so would seem to be at a distinct advantage in FanTeam given that he wouldn’t be punished for chancing his arm and missing the target or being dispossessed when dribbling. The more shots being taken, the better.

Assist Potential

As in FPL, three points are awarded to those players who register orthodox assists or Fantasy assists.

Subscribers to our Members’ Area can look at Opta’s underlying creativity numbers to see which players are most likely to deliver assists in the future.

Two examples of which – accessed via the Distribution and Expected tabs in Player Stats – are given below:

Above: defenders ranked by chances created in the last four Gameweeks of 2018/19.

Above: defenders ranked by expected assists (xA) in the last four Gameweeks of 2018/19.

Goalkeepers

Saves are rewarded even more with FanTeam than they are in FPL. Every save earns a goalkeeper 0.5 points, so there is no ‘multiple of three’ rule here.

However, the point awarded/deducted for a player being on the winning/losing side (while still on the pitch) is a significant factor in FanTeam, as is the lack of bonus.

Alisson and Ederson both scored more in FanTeam than they did in FPL, while the likes of Lukasz Fabianski and Ben Foster scored less.

A goalkeeper who plays for a successful team and can rack up some saves is the ideal mix, then.

Alisson made more saves than Ederson and kept more clean sheets, for example.

The table below from our Members’ Area ranks Premier League goalkeepers by saves in 2018/19, with David de Gea standing out – if Manchester United’s defence can improve on their clean sheet count this season, then the Spanish international – so often called upon even when the Red Devils are in form – could have a Fantasy renaissance this season.

Above: goalkeepers ranked by saves in 2018/19.

We will have more FanTeam content between now and the start of Gameweek 1.

    Spurs defence look good in pre-season, any case for 5.5m Rose over Coleman?
    Able to rotate with Zouma for City and Arsenal away.

    1. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 18 days ago

      rotating 5.0 and 5.5 defenders?

      1. RAMZES666
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Zouma just seems so much better of an upgrade compared to 4.5m defs. Also gives option of playing 5 atb.

    2. kilemal

      Lol you don't rotate that price

    3. The Big Fella
      • 3 Years

      Rose is off

  2. 22lgm

      Hi

      Kevin DB + B Silva
      or Sterling + Doucoure or another 6.0

      ta.

      1. Smash10

        Yeah that’s where I’m at currently. Can’t decide

    • The Overthinker
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      At the moment only Kante and azpi are over 10% ( 10.5 and 10.2 respectively) . Luiz is next with 9.7 .

      Rest are all below 10.
      Pulisic 7
      Kepa 6.8
      Barkley 2.5
      Abraham 1.9

      1. Yank Revolution
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Chelsea are the perfect 'wait and see team' - No need to have any of them in GW 1.

      2. Indalo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Not surprised, Chelsea are such an unknown quantity at the moment.

      3. The Big Fella
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Fiver says Barkley is 10%+/- in the next couple of days

    • Indalo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Ederson McGovern
      TAA VVD Coleman ___ ___
      Salah Sterling KDB ___ (Dend)
      King Wesley (Greenwood)

      15.5 available for the 3 spots.

      Currently on Cathcart, Lundstram and Perez for the open spots (0.5 itb). I do like the look of that, but it means I'd have to start one of my 4.5/4.0 options every week.

      A) Keep Perez and rotate 2 cheap defenders every week

      B) Downgrade Perez to a 5.5, get a 4th defender you'd play every week

      1. dmkp
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        C. Downgrade Ederson and keep Perez and get a good defender

        1. Indalo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          That is a good option C I guess

      2. Yank Revolution
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        The choices at 5.5 or below for MF are bleak.

        1. Nomar
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Westwood, Moutinho, McGinn, Freeman all look like they could give decent returns for £5.5m.

          1. Yank Revolution
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            1 Goal Moutinho?

            Possibly Westwood, but I think he only had 2 goals himself...

            Both are assisters primarily.

            You are missing the best pick of all though? Robinson ....

        1 month, 18 days ago

        A sounds good to me, unless you really fancy Ceballos.

        Don't really fancy too many 5.5 options.

        1. Indalo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Yeah I was having a look through them and there aren't many I'm mad about

      4. jk_footyfan

          2 Def among: Lundstram, Kelly, Rico, BGibson (not nailed)
          1 Mid: Barkley
          Greenwood => Murray

            I don't see Murray starting week in week out under Potter

            1. jk_footyfan
                1 month, 18 days ago

                Right.. do you fancy Dend => Trossard ?

          KWP has been insane..... looks like spurs RB is his to lose now

          1. Nomar
            • 9 Years

            Can’t trust it.

          • 2 Years

          Pick one please
          A) Barkley and Ceballos
          B) Jorginho and Perez

            Any strong views one way or the other on Lacazette?

            1. Yank Revolution
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Boom or bust candidate! He's talented and if he plays up front REGULARLY he's well worth a slot on your team. If his starting becomes sporadic, run.

              1. The Big Fella
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                Yeah that's what I think too. I just think he is (obviously) easier to get into your team than Auba. I could possibly do a front two of him and Vardy but it is very risky

            2. Brosstan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Seems a very good pick if he plays the next friendly. Dont want him if hes the slightest injury doubt

              1. The Big Fella
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                I didn't know he was injured/rumoured to be. I could manage a front two of him and Vardy I think

                When is their next friendly mate?

              • 1 Year

              seems like a good pick for at least the first 2 GWs

            Ryan Button
            Trent Robertson Digne Zinchenko 4.0
            Salah Sane KDB Perez (Dendoncker)

            1. Devo-McDuff
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 17 days ago

              Would scare me not having him but it's a nice team. Sane looking likely to be off to Bayern, maybe him to Siggy and Ryan to Ederson?

            2. Devo-McDuff
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 17 days ago

              Also Bilva likely to play in more attacking position regularly if Sane goes so he looks a good option.
