FanTeam

Register now with FanTeam to win money playing Fantasy football

Fantasy Football Scout are delighted to be joining forces with FanTeam in 2019/20.

Gameweek 1 is just a day away and Fantasy managers are encouraged to sign up today to give themselves the best chance of being in the prize shake-up come the end of the season.

Unlike in Fantasy Premier League, the deadline for each Gameweek is ten seconds before the very first match kicks off – giving Fantasy managers the advantage of being able to see the teamsheets released for that opening fixture.

For those who hate the lull of the hour between FPL deadline and kick-off, Fantasy managers can get hands-on with their FanTeam squads while FPL is updating.

The beauty of FanTeam is that the rules, scoring and prices are very similar to FPL, so skills – and indeed squads – are easily transferable.

There is more on the rules in the article below.

Prizes

There’s a staggering €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 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:

Scoring

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

The main differences are the absence of a Bonus Points System, which is replaced by plus/minus points if a team is winning/losing during the period a player is on the pitch.

Goalkeepers also get 0.5 points for every save made, unlike the one point awarded in FPL for increments of three stops.

Committing a foul that leads to a free-kick goal is also penalised by minus two points.

The full scoring breakdown is as follows:

Five Players to Consider in Gameweek 1

Mohamed Salah

FanTeam price: £12.5m
FanTeam 2018/19 score: 288 points
GW1 Fixture: Norwich City (h)

Salah is famously not well rewarded on the FPL Bonus Points System but the absence of that in FanTeam arguably makes him an even more attractive option.

The Egyptian was the leading points-scorer in FanTeam last season, finishing 29 points clear of Sadio Mane (£11.5m).

Salah racked up more penalty box touches, attempts on goal, shots in the box, big chances and efforts on target than any other FanTeam midfielder in 2018/19.

Norwich haven’t kept a single clean sheet in pre-season and leaked 57 goals in the Championship last year.

With Liverpool red-hot favourites for this Gameweek 1 curtain-raiser, Salah will surely collect a bonus point for being on the winning side, too.

Raheem Sterling

FanTeam price: £11.5m
FanTeam 2018/19 score: 255 points
GW1 Fixture: West Ham United (a)

Another ‘stating the obvious pick’ he may be but with Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) and Gabriel Jesus (£8.5m) perhaps not quite fully match-fit after their involvement in the Copa America, and with Leroy Sane (£8.5m) reportedly struggling with a knee problem, Sterling looks the safest route into the City attack this weekend.

The England winger, who has spent time playing as a central striker this summer, has five goals and two assists to his name in pre-season.

West Ham only kept seven clean sheets in 2018/19 (only Fulham and Huddersfield recorded fewer) and City are something a bogey team for the Hammers.

In the past four meetings in east London, City have won 5-0, 4-0, 4-1 and 4-0.

Pep Guardiola’s side also beat West Ham 4-1 in the PL Asia Trophy in July.

Sterling scored a goal and banked two assists in this fixture last season.

Lucas Digne

FanTeam price: £6.0m
FanTeam 2018/19 score: 136 points
GW1 Fixture: Crystal Palace (a)

Only relegated Huddersfield Town scored fewer home goals than Crystal Palace last season and the Eagles may well be without their talisman, Wilfried Zaha (£7.5m), this weekend.

Everton kept eight clean sheets in their final 11 games last season, meanwhile.

Digne offers more than just clean sheet points, of course: no defender created more chances than the Frenchman in 2018/19.

With Everton facing just Manchester City of the ‘big six’ in Gameweeks 1-10, Digne could easily pick up win bonus along with shut-out points and attacking returns.

Lucas Moura

FanTeam price: £7.5m
FanTeam 2018/19 score: 143 points
GW1 Fixture: Aston Villa (h)

Harry Kane (£11.0m) is the obvious choice for Spurs this weekend but for those budgeting, Lucas Moura is a decent alternative.

Listed as a midfielder in FanTeam, Lucas could very well be playing up top alongside Kane against Villa on Saturday.

Even if he is only in an attacking midfield position, the absences of Son Heung-min (£9.5m) and Dele Alli (£8.0m) should ensure a start.

The Brazilian has three goals and one assist to his name in pre-season.

Spurs’ first eight home fixtures are all against sides who were in the bottom half of the table or in the Championship last season.

Jamie Vardy

FanTeam price: £8.5m
FanTeam 2018/19 score: 165 points
GW1 Fixture: Wolves (h)

While many of the FanTeam prices are similar to FPL, there are some notable exceptions.

Vardy, in particular, looks like a steal at £8.5m in FanTeam.

After Brendan Rodgers first took charge of Leicester in Gameweek 29 last season, no striker scored more goals than Vardy (nine).

No forward recorded as many big chances or shots on target in this period, either.

The Foxes take on a Wolves side who were impressive last season but who come into the game off the back of a 6,000-mile round-trip to Armenia on Thursday.

    Chelsea pick: Pulisic or Abraham?

    1. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      I'd probably steer clear for now until we know for certain how they will line up and perform.

    2. semiconductor
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Pulisic I'd trust more

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Pulisic but give it a couple of weeks

      • 6 Years

      1. Need to get rid of both Moura and Fraser for GW3/GW4, maybe only go with one of them?
      2. Don't like Trossard, would prefer punt on Barkley if you're going with 6.0.

    2. Harper

      You forgot to fit Sterling in.

  6. TONY123

    No Gareth Bale rumours on deadline day? I'm very disappointed.

  7. semiconductor

    1. 5.0m (Zouma perhaps)+Rico
    Or
    2. 2×4.5s (have no idea who..diop and montoya)

    I already have Vardy in my team so should I pick..
    A) Perez, for the double-up
    B) Trossard and spare the 0.5mil

    1. semiconductor
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      I wouldn't double up and not sure about trossard myself.

      Looks okay but defence is a bit light and no Salah also

    2. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Too much up top. Allocate more funds to defense

    3. The_Fish

      No Salah or Sterling... you mental?

    Rumor has it that Sane has an ACL injury. Out for the season. Got to feel for the player if true 🙁

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Excellent for FPL though... every cloud and that.

        Gutted for Sane, but it could mean there is a time during the season for Mahrez to get a run.

  12. cravencottage

    Some advice please:

    Zaha stays

  14. Better luck next year
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Think I’ve nailed it.

    Heaton (Button)
    TAA VVD Digne Zinch (Rico)
    Salah Sterling Siggy Perez (Dendo)
    Wilson King (Wickham)

    What do you think?

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Pretty solid and similar to mine except I've downgraded Zinc to Montoya and upgraded Wilson to Vardy.

      I'm not a fan of double Bournemouth attack, even with the fixtures.

      1. Better luck next year
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks. Not fully sure on double Bou attack, but Leicester fixtures is not too tempting as to double on their attack either:/

    Now my concern is Greenwood as a sub (Expected pricedrop mainly), so what's a better combination?

    A) Wilson and Greenwood (As it is)
    B) Downgrade Wilson to King and get Murray also

  22. SADIO SANÉ
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    nearly there now 😀 team and thoughts for anyone that wants to argue with any of them 😀

    Heaton - turd first fixture but a sea of green after that, could have a lot of shots to save either way
    VVD - most nailed, cheaper than the other two
    Gomez - risky, but Matip/Lovren/Gomez all scored well when played last season, potentially more nailed than TAA
    *Coleman - very similar ppm as Digne last season, this could still become Zouma or Zinchenko before tomorrow

    Salah - thought for ages about going without, but he could go big GW1 and ruin everything
    Sterling - never really left my team, prefer him to Salah after the first two weeks
    Moura - depending on the Alli injury he could play GWs1-3 and then he will be moved on, Martial/Perez the likely replacement
    Trossard - another that looks solid for GWs 1-3; wat WHU SOU, inside forward on set-pieces, Perez/Chelsea the likely replacement

    Auba - ppm/90 last season was very good, New BUR, captaincy candidate GW2, probably becomes Kane GW3
    *King - on pens, don't really like this pick but he's well owned and starts with 2 potentially nice fixtures
    *Ings - on pens, ppm/90 last season was decent when not injured, bad games are at home other fixtures nice

    Woodman - can't fall in price, doubt I'll ever want 3 Newcastle players
    Rico - personally think he will start for the first 2 weeks
    Gibson/Kelly - could start GW1, waiting for pressers
    Cantwell - again not nailed, but worth a punt as 3rd sub

  23. HamezMace
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Fair play to the Palace fan who said (a few weeks ago) there would be no way Zaha would go to Everton.

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      The only reason why it didn't happen is because Everton didn't pay 80m. Looks like Zaha wanted the move, and Palace would've said if their valuation was met.

      1. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        I wonder what Everton were prepared to go to.
        It always makes me wonder when you're talking about 60, 70, 80m deals, once you're talking those figures a few million more almost seems a negliable amount.
        Like Maguire, Leicester want £80m, United say we'll only go to £75m....why haggle at that stage?

    2. Daniel Son
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      tbf, he said it because he was adamant that Zaha wouldnt want to go to Everton, which he clearly did

      1. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Did he? I thought it was more a combination of Zaha's desire and Everton finances. Either way, I hope he put some money on it.

      same - I'm toying between:
      a) Siggy and Wilson
      b) KdB and King

      Been on (a) all week, but not moving to (b). If nothing else, gives some optionality if some of the other premium mids start firing

          KDB is miles better.
          Siggy lost some of the freekicks and corners to Digne.

    Which would you rather have...

    A: TAA & C. Wilson
    B: Montoya & Kane

    Was fixed on A but now veering towards B (also have VVD & King locked in for Liverpool & Bournemouth already)
