FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

The draws for the fifth round of the FFS Members Cup and the sixth round of the FFS Cup have taken place following the completion of Gameweek 19.

As planned, we skipped Gameweek 20 due to the swift turnaround between the two sets of fixtures.

We’re down to the final 32 Fantasy managers in both tournaments after the Boxing Day games.

Two of our three remaining site users who lie outside the top 150k, Coquelino and A Team Has No Name, meet each other in round six.

The fifth round draw in full can be accessed here.

Our highest-ranked entrant left in either competition is now up to a remarkable 14th in the world.

frankiem, who first entered the top 1k four months ago, saw off sandgrounder 66-64 in Gameweek 19 and will meet Emm7980 in the fifth round.

ActorJeff, who has an overall rank of 630th, also progressed and will next play OlivierGiroudsHair.

A further seven managers in the round-of-32 draw are also in the top 10k after Gameweek 20.

One of those, the aforementioned TeddyBrewski, will face moderator TorresMagic in the first Gameweek of 2020.

    Is there any disadvantage of playing second wildcard now? Do people tend to keep for DGWS etc?

      Generally yes, but you may get significant advantage if you do it now in case your team needs big changes

      Hi all,who would you transfer Targett out for?

      1FT

      0.1 ITB

      My team is

      Guiata Button

      Soyuncu Lundstram Rico Targett Hanley

      Salah Mane Kdb Ali Richarlison

      Vardy Greenwood Ings.

      1. Tonym

          Any help someone new?

            I feel like you have way too much money in midfield. I would consider something along the lines of Richarlison to Cantwell and Targett to TAA (I have't checked the maths to see if that exact move is affordable).

            1. Tonym
                1 month, 24 days ago

                I think you may be right

                Appreciated but going with triple Liverpool are you sure?

                And in that case I would have to play a 4 back?

                  Personally I like the Liverpool triple up. I played my WC 2 weeks ago and brought in Salah and Mane. Admittedly, Salah hasn't paid off yet but I still feel there is huge potential and obviously there is the double gameweek on the horizon. Unfortunately for me, I went for VVD over TAA to save a bit of cash - have learnt the hard way that TAA is more or less essential, so I'm getting him back either this GW or the next. And yes, things could be a bit tricky in terms of your formation because of having Greenwood. You could play Cantwell in a five man midfield but he is a rotation risk. Possibly in the longer term you could try and upgrade Greenwood to Calvert-Lewin...?

              Better pick:

              a) Martial
              b) Jimenez

                Thanks to Kdb (c) and mane my gw was rescued. How does that look and what is the best strategy to get extra Liv player?

                Is it worth getting Fabianski?

                  I've gone for it, as I've always been a fan & think Moyes will tighten things up. I would understand if someone wanted to wait though.

                  However....home to Bournemouth seems a good time to start tightening up at the back.

                    Would you​ do Schmeichel & Aurier to Fab & Evans for free?

                  I quite like it. I have Pope so may as well wait and see this week, but it's on the radar!

                1FT....
                1.3m itb

                Bit worried about my weak bench with potential benching for KDB / Tammy / Salah....

                Considering getting on the Traore bandwagon for DD (although does leave me with benching headache)

                Thoughts please?

                  I'd hold and take 2FT into next week

                Pretty poor week - 80k rank drop - but still can't see the obvious use for 2 FT this week.. Any thoughts!?

                2 FT, 2.7 ITB

                Pope
                Trent - Rico - Soy

                    Could also consider changing keepers??

                Hi mates. Any feedback? 1 FT 0.1 itb.

                Thinking of just rolling FT.

                Button, Cantwell, Lundstram, Williams

                Cheers!

                  Think hold is the right move this week. Tomori or Aurier could become someone like Holgate afterwards?

                  Not bad moves. Better with Madds in my opinion

                Is Kelly and Alli to VVD and Traore a good move for free?

                It will give me:

                Pope
                VVD, TAA, Soyuncu
                Mane, KDB, Traore, Maddison
                Abraham, Vardy, Pukki

                4m, Grealish, Rico, Lundstram

                Is anyone considering using the TC chip on Liverpool's DGW? Personally I will have Mane & Salah, but don't like the fixtures enough to use a chip on them. Think I'll roll the dice and hope that a Vardy or KDB has a better double in the later rounds.

                1. Would Ed Woodward
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 24 days ago

                  Not sure, I definitely won't be using it on a Liv player in the later DGWs if they've already wrapped up the title.

                  1 month, 24 days ago

                  Considered it but will leave later, just because it's more fun and I've burnt myself with early TC before.

                  1 month, 24 days ago

                  Between TAA and Salah but yeah I’ll likely be using it

                  • 1 Year

                  I'm 99% using it then.

                  1 month, 24 days ago

                  Yes, best time to use it.
                  Provably on TAA for me as I will have triple Liverpool defence but obviously Salah or Mane are the prime options.

                Chances of Tammy being rested this week?

                  Very unlikely. Most teams will be full strength next GW because they can rest players in the FA cup this weekend.

                GW rank 6m, pretty cool as Klopp would say.

                    a) Grealish -> Traore
                    b) Grealish & Aurier -> Doherty & Traore
                    c) something else

                    Looking at the fixtures I think it’s time to switch. It’s my keepers, and hopefully save some cash. Have Pope and Henderson, and they’ve worked well for me but think it’s time to change both. Hat are the recommended cheap keepers for second half of the season?

                      I’ve both myself but not changing just yet. I’ve more important moves to think about. Seeing love for Fab but not sure myself

                      Maybe Everton def after this GW?

                      Start Tomori over Hanley. I'm doing Grealish over Cantwell myself, too, but that's a closer call

                        No. Doing surgery for triple Liverpool. Still unsure on Salah or double defence.

                      I would ditch Kane to upgrade Greenwood/Grealish/Zaha personally.

                      Maybe Ings & Martial.

                    Play Grealish or Cantwell

                      • 6 Years
                      1 month, 24 days ago

                      I'm playing Cantwell myself, but Pope in net has sorted of swayed me.

                      Grealish, more nailed and central to everything.

                        Except for last game when he got moved to the left wing

                          He still has set pieces though doesn't he?

                    Danny Ings has played in all 20 League games this season. Crazy considering he's regarded as pretty much the most injury prone player there is (after Wilshere).

                      • 1 Year
                      1 month, 24 days ago

                      Ings has absolutely murdered me in my ML this past month or so, he's been so good, doubt he'll be at Southampton next season if he stays fit for all of this one.

                    • 1 Year
                    1 month, 24 days ago

                    I really don't like Grealish for the upcoming fixtures but can't see a better alternative around his price point, can't get Traore because I'm already maxed out on Wolves annoyingly. Perez is way too punty right? I like that he's back at his former club next but his minutes are so inconsistent.

                          Hmm maybe actually, I hadn't even considered him, I might still keep Grealish for Burnley and then re-evaluate with 2FT, I do think he'll blank though.

                      Worth a hit?

                      Rashford, Grealish, Aurier -> Jiminez, Martial, VVD

                            He had tricky fixtures and people have no patience. I'm keeping for the next few games at least.

                              Leicester have a good run of fixtures. I’m holding for now.
