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.

        Who?

    3. Greek Flair
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      what 2 of the below Liverpool trio would you go for money no object?

      Robbo
      TAA
      VVD

      im wondering whether people are only choosing VVD because they can save 0.5?

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

        VVD and TAA (if you have bench cover)

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

        Robbo + Taa no doubt, that 0.5 save, huge VVD ownership, TAA might miss few games due to rotation/injury like last year..

        1. Greek Flair
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          so are you recommending for or against TAA haha

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

        If they were all the same price, Robbo and Trent

    4. Gazpilicueta
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Reluctant to do a RMT this close to kick off, but I think Im settled. Thoughts anyone?

      Pope
      Trent, VVD, Digne, Rico
      Sterling, Salah(c), KDB, Perez
      Wilson, Jota
      Button, Lundstram, Dendoncker, Greenwood

      I know its quite templatey around here, but Im hoping the KDB pick will be my main differential with hopes to jump on Son/Pepe shortly. bit worried about not having Fraser but I cant have em all!

      1. GanonTEK
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Solid

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Very similar to mine, apart from these changes:
        Digne to Coleman
        Rico to Zinchenko
        Perez to Robinson
        Jota to King

        1. Podge
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          All bad moves, every player on the left is an upgrade.

      3. Podge
        • 8 Years

        Auba for me

      Is kyle walker-peters worth the hassle? I’m currently on him but i’m not overly convinced.

      1. Pukki Party
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I'm going for it, will become the 4.5 bandwagon or Zouma if needed.

      2. Debauchy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah was on him but dumped just because of the "hassle"

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

        No hassle, easy to switch to someone else when Aurier is back

    10. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Kind of stuck:

      A) Aubameyang and KDB
      B) Vardy and Sterling

      1. Kante Touch This
        • 1 Year

        I'm on B rn, heart is telling me to go with Vardy

      2. GanonTEK
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        B easy

    11. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Whoever's in charge of Brighton's recruitment has, IMO, done a very good job this window. Webster, Maupay, Trossard and now Mooy.

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

        And everyone thought potter would bring them down. They are set to challenge top half now imo

    12. BoomXhakaLaca1
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Vardy or Wilson?
      Have Perez too

      1. GanonTEK
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Vardy for me

      2. FPL-(VAR)dy
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        wilson ..first two fixtures are too good

      3. BoomXhakaLaca1
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Just read the post above, will stick with vardy

    13. BlueEddy
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Is this a terrible idea?
      Pope - Heaton
      Coleman, Rico, Montoya, Johnson, Lundstram
      Salah Sterling Perez Barkley McGinn
      Kane Aubameyang Greenwood

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

        Yes, didn't you get the memo? value is in defense.

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

          Value is in the wingbacks, if they get assists...one goal against them and they lose 4 points...

      2. FISSH
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Yes.

        1. BlueEddy

      Is it possible Kyle Walker & Cancelo start together?Zinchenko seems to be the weak link of the defense

      1. Pukki Party
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Possible but not likely

      Diop or balbuena worth a shout as first (only) sub? Anything to pick between them?

      1. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Balbuena more goal threat

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Brought him in last year for his first goal then he sat on my bench for weeks so I have good memories. Thanks.

      2. JohnBlack

        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I wouldn't stress about it if they are to be your 1st sub, their (attacking returns) will be few and far between so the chance they come in and its the week they get an attacking return is highly unlikely....Go with the one that you feel will play the majority of games.

    19. TeddiPonza
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I need a 4,5m defender that will play most matches (rotate with Dendoncker). Best option?

      1. Totally Hammered
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Montoya (BRI) is popular around here....Im on Targett (AV)

      what do u guys think of
      TAA+Salah+Firmino triple up

      Liverpools first 4 fixtures look better offensively than defensively..could Firmino prove to be a shrewd differential?

    22. Pukki Party

      Sessegnon on his way to Spurs, apparently

        This one is for other serious gamblers or serie A experts only

        Do you think Juventus dominate serie A once again or do you see Inter or Napoli pushing them very close. Thanks in advnce.

        1. DAZZ
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Dont have to be a seasoned gambler to predict Juventus winning Serie A

          1. Dribbles
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Umm ok

              1. Dribbles
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  :/

            • Would Ed Woodward
                2 months, 6 days ago

                It'll definitely be closer, I'm not sure Sarri will be able to manage the personalities in that squad and keep everyone happy, seemed a strange appointment to me.

                1. Dribbles
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    This was my thinking also, the new manager coming in changes alot.
                    The average punter just sees Juve have won last 8 so think they are a certainty but it doesnt work like that. I think the De Ligt sign is the jey abd this will just edge them the title but it will be very close.
                    Thanks for your opinion.

                    1. Dribbles
                        2 months, 6 days ago

                        key not jey**

                        1. Would Ed Woodward
                            2 months, 6 days ago

                            Sarri has a set philosophy and a system which isn't always easy to implement plus is very stubborn, as we saw at Chelsea. The Juve squad seemed to me that it needed someone like Ancelotti, someone with a talent to manage and massage egos.

                    • 9 Years

                    AWB or KWP, that’s the question

                      • 1 Year

                    B) KDB + Siggy/Fraser

                    Which is the best combination?

                    A. Salah + Trossard + Wood/Jota
                    B. Mane + Trossard + Haller
                    C. Mane + Lanzini + Abraham
                    D. Mane + Martial + Wesley

                      A cos Mane unlikely to play.

                    Sorry for reposting...

                    A. Ings + Wilson (442)
                    or
                    B. King + Martial (451)

                      B just because I don't like Ings

                      B, I prefer the price points with this option

                    would you prefer Ings or Robinson as your starting player ?
