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.

    Last few decisions...

    1) Kane vs Auba (potential hokey-cokey)
    2) King vs Jota
    3) Heaton vs Pope

    Thoughts?

        Why Pope,

    4. Podge
      • 9 Years

      I’ll be controversial and go Aub Jota pope

  2. Bubbles1985

    Is Salah deemed essential?

    My team looks so much more balanced without him...!

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Absolutely

    2. GanonTEK
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Him and Sterling yes.

  3. Andy_Social
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    My internet's been down for two days and I've missed all the conversations.
    Am I missing something here? David Luis has left Chelsea and they've not brought anyone in. Doesn't that make TWO 5m defenders nailed? If so why isn't everyone all over Zouma and Christensen?

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

      Luis hasn't moved yet. Chelsea defence is still a no go for me at the start. If anything they serve as an exit strategy for Zinchenko

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        As good as

    2. DV8R
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Rudiger back in training

    3. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Our defence hasn't been great in pre season, I would wait until Rudiger returns (back in training already) and then get Zouma.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        But it's fair to say both are nailed until Rutgers back, right?

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

          Yep almost definitely. Azpi can play there but very unlikely.

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            8 months, 4 days ago

            That would mean starting Zappy. Ain't gonna happen!

  4. The Mighty Whites
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Zouma or Ake??

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

      Ake initially, keep an eye on Chelsea and their fixtures turn GW3

  5. LewanGOALski
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Barkley or Trossard as 4th MID?
    thx

    1. The Mighty Whites
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      T

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

      B

    3. Podge
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      If Barkley keeps starting he’ll be in every team soon, ridiculous value.

    4. Guba
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Barkley isn't definitely starting, a lot of people are saying Mount might get the nod. Depends how risky you're feeling, I'd say Barkley would get more points on Trossard.

  6. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Ryan or Pope?

    1. Cory2711
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Pope

  7. ppv
    • 9 Years

    Rose to Watford

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Kwp nailed?

      1. Tony Moon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Different position.

    2. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Interesting, with Ben Davies unlikely to be fit for Saturday, Vertonghen for LB?

    3. yakirh
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Rejected

    4. Captain Kakaroto (I blame R…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      SAY WHAT? why would he?

  8. dsefton
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Any good? Trying to fit Auba + Sterling + Salah, but worried defence might be too light?

    Pope
    Robertson / Walker-Peters / Montoya
    Sterling / Salah / Fraser / Perez / Dendoncker
    Auba / Wilson

    *Button / Rico / Greenwood / Diop*

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Would downgrade Fraser to upgrade A defender

    2. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Wilson for King and Trossars for Dend

  9. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Any player worth upgrading for 0.5, or bank the cash?

    Ryan (McGovern)
    Robertson - KWP - Digne - Shaw (Rico)
    Salah - Sterling - Perez - Barkley (Dendonker)
    Kane - King (Greenwood)

    1. Don Custard Rovers
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 4 days ago

      KWP to zinch maybe

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Good idea, next week maby as Spurs home to avl?

        1. Tony Moon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 4 days ago

          Don't think Spurs will keep a clean sheet. Villa are quite free scoring. Put three past the best defence in the Bundesliga in their last friendly.

  10. Whazza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Rip. Up. Your. Team!

    #AVFC & Birkir Bjarnason have today mutually agreed to the termination of his contract with the Club.

    1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Back to the drawing board for me!
      He was on permanent captaincy for the whole season, based my whole team around Bjarnason!

      1. VAR Star
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        😀

  11. AuFeld
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    What do you think your team does well (eg flexibility, captain options, etc)? And what are your concerns and your team's biggest weakness (eg no bench, a questionable defender, etc)?

  12. Marmalade Forest
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    I’m sure this has been asked and answered, but with Lukaku gone and no one coming in, the potential scores of Martial and Rashford must be superb, no?

    1. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Shhhhhhh

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Lol, like everyone doesn't realise

    2. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Unfortunately the reality with them rarely matches the potential

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      yes. but wait and see which one and if united are any good.

    4. Jacky boy
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      ManUtd is rubbish

    5. Rostah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      I've had Martial in pretty much every draft and will move on Rashford in a few weeks if things are looking good. The big question is will we see a Man U closer to how OGS started his reign or ended the season. Impossible to tell from preseason alone.

    6. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      You’d think so, but both are stupidly inconsistent, nothing will change this season

    7. Jacky boy
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      And fixtures are not great

    8. Guba
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      My plan is to jump on Martial around Gw3 for Fraser in a straight swap

  13. The Overthinker - I blame R…
    • 3 Years

    Team locked. Good luck everybody 🙂

    1. RamaJama

      How does it look?

      1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        I really like it..

        Pretty different from what my first draft was

        Pope
        Awb vvd cathcart verto
        Salah Perez Martial sterling (c)
        Kane Wood

        Button chambers Greenwood hayde.

  14. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Anyone here getting Auba/Kane instead of Sterling?

    Surely sterling will do well but I think Auba/Kane could match him for 1M less

    1. Boris Bodega: Holly's …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      I have somehow managed to get all three in my team!

    2. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Yes. I'm on PEA and Salah. As a stat whore, it's hard to look past PEA xG + xA per 90 mins and opening two fixtures.

    3. Podge
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Not a chance. Sterling locked in for top scorer this season.

  15. Don Custard Rovers
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Final Draft guys would appreciate a RMT

    Ederson
    VVD Zinch A.Smith Montoya
    Salah Sterling Siggy Moura
    Firmino King

    Button-Dendon-Lund-Green (I know weak bench but im ok with it)

  16. Cory2711

    A) Robertson + Trossard

    B) VVD + Perez

    1. FPL-(VAR)dy

      A

  17. PlayPercentage
    • 9 Years

    Kane vs. Auba
    Who has looked the best in pre-season?
    Then pick the other one...

    1. FISSH
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      IMO Auba is just a better striker

  18. sirmorbach
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    As a Laporte owner, should I go with Zinc and bring Laporte back in GW2? Or d'you think he plays?

    1. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Go with Zinc and bring in Laporte later on a double up in GW3-11.

    1. Kante Touch This
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      has he signed?

  21. HangryPanda
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    For those considering Ceballos as a good punt and for a way into Arsenal....who do you think is best place holder for Gw1 (at same or less value of 5.5) to bring him in once he is back.

    Current thoughts are Robinson (not nailed to start apparently) and McGinn (playing spurs)

    Really Want to take the punt on him myself but he is very doubtful for start of season...is Xhaka worth having for 1 week to swap for Dani next week or am i being mental!?

    1. sirmorbach
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      I'm with Robinson myself. Think he starts.

      1. HangryPanda
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Agree....really like the idea of Robinson against Bournemouth. Might go for him aswell then 🙂

        1. sirmorbach
          • 3 Years

          Hopefully we'll do well. Good luck mate

    I’ve got 1.0M in the bank 🙂 it leaves me with so much options when i make my first move, Haller, Kean, Jota ect. Just for flexibility.

    Pope (Button)
    TAA Robertson Digne Montoya (Lundstram)
    Salah Sterling KDB Perez (Dendoncker)
    King Adams (Greenwood)

    Montoya at 0.4% ownership. Interesting to see how much that goes up now he's being hyped

      There will probably be 5m to 6m teams out there, most represented by the casual user. I will surprised if he breaches 1% by the deadline.

      Trossard got hyped massively and only went from 0.6% to 0.7%

      And considering they've just bought another RB from PSG...
