FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

The second round of our FFS Cup took place in Double Gameweek 30+, with 256 managers whittled down to 128 following its completion.

We go again in Gameweek 31+ and, with Tuesday’s deadline hurtling into view, the quick turnaround means that this round-up will be briefer than normal.

All results from the second round can be viewed here
The full draw for the third round is available to view here

With Joe and reigning champion Philman bowing out, Wild Rover was the only previous one of our winners who made it through to round three.

He faces a tough task in Gameweek 31+, however, with Euroalien, currently ranked 827th in the world, standing in the way of a place in the last 64.

Two other managers in the third round of the FFS Cup are currently inside the top 1k, with rdamjam and Forza ranked at 43rd and 325th respectively.

They will face ChromeDome and FPLchewitt in round three.

There were some huge, triple-figure scores in Double Gameweek 30+, with TomTraubertsBlues and stamfordbridge both scoring 141.

HOW DO THE CUP COMPETITIONS WORK?

The FFS Cup is very similar to the Fantasy Premier League’s own cup game.

Entrants who qualify for the first round were randomly drawn against each other and the winner of the tie is whoever has the highest score from that Gameweek, minus points spent on transfers (like in the original game and in head-to-head scores).

In the event of a draw, the manager highest in the overall FPL rankings after the tie will progress.

WHAT IS THE GAMEWEEK SCHEDULE?

The FFS Cup competition will be played out according to the following proposed Gameweek schedule:

Fantasy Football Scout Cup Round Dates
Qualifying – Gameweek 28

Round 1 – Gameweek 29
Round 2 – Gameweek 30+
Round 3 – Gameweek 31+
Round 4 – Gameweek 32+
Round 5 – Gameweek 33+
Round 6 – Gameweek 34+
Quarter-Final – Gameweek 35+
Semi-Finals – Gameweek 36+
Final and third-place play-off – Gameweek 37+

WHEN ARE THE FIXTURES RELEASED?

Where possible, the fixture list for each round will be published before each Gameweek deadline.

      A - gets more points when he returns and .8 cheaper.

      1. Railwayman
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        He did get 20 points more for goals and CS's as a midfielder.

    2. Railwayman
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      For me, it is between him or Patricio.

    Shameless repost, bottomed.

    Would you dare to go w/o KDB on a WC this week for like, 2 gameweeks, and then get him back in?

    Cheers!

    Pick one(wildcard in Gw33):
    a) Sterling, Mahrez -> Mane(CRY, MCI), Bruno(SHU, bri) (-4)
    b) Sterling, Grealish -> Son(WHU, shu), Bruno(SHU, bri) (-4)
    c) Mahrez -> Bruno
    d) Sterling -> Mane

    1. fatty100kg
      1 month, 18 days ago

      B

  11. Pépé sur le P…
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    I made a GW33 WC draft.
    What do you think?

    McCarthy Martinez
    Doherty Saiss Coleman Aurier Ngakia
    KDB Mahrez Foden Fernandes Pogba
    Kane Rashford Jimenez

    - 0.4 ITB to upgrade Coleman (to Digne) or Ngakia.
    - Pogba can be Martial if I need some funds.
    - BB to be played anytime from GW34 to 36 (preferably earlier), based on likelihood of a Foden start, amongst other things.

    1. Bruce Lee
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Proper maverick team

      Kane, Pogba (in too early maybe), Mahrez AND KDB (in a City team that is hit so hard with rotation), no Liverpool at all

      1. Pépé sur le P…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Thanks for your reply. This is for GW33, so I should have time to see if Pogba is worth the risk, and Liverpool may have won the league by then (although I would of course be nervous as they still have a few great fixtures).

  12. How I met your Mata
    • 5 Years

    Ready to rock!!
    0.7ITB
    Pope
    Trent Soy Saiss
    Mane Bruno Barnes KDB Son
    Rashford Jiminez

    Barnes for one week punt

    Subs: 3.9 Greenwood Holgate Robinson

  13. _Ninja_
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Mo Salah.....91 goals 37 assist in 144 games

    His fitness is putting me off the captaincy. Does he normally take time to get back into the swing of things?

    1. Dele
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      After the golden boot, think he’ll be goals.

  14. screamer73
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Pick one for the rest of the season.

    A. VVD + Barnes/Sarr
    B. TAA + Saka

  15. Fishy
    • 11 Years

    Gone for free hit over wildcard what do we think?
    Schmeichel 
    Aurier taa Doherty 
    Traore fernandea richarlison salah

    This is it guys
    Don't try and convince me otherwise.

    Foster Martinez
    VVD Doherty Boly Lacelles Simpson
    KDB Son Bruno Martial
    Kane (c) Jiminez DCL

  17. Gubbins94.
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Lads, your thoughts on the below if possible?

    Patricio Martin
    TAA Doherty Maguire Lascelles Femenia
    Salah KDB Son Bruno Saka
    DCL Jimi Nketiah

    Originally had Sarr instead of Saka, but chose to swap him for Maguire as a position I'd be playing every wek.

    Is Mane Salah double in FH team too much?

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

      I dont think so, but the thing is you can use that much money elsewhere. I dont think 2 are essential nor bad to have.

      Which one would you go if you had to pick one? I like Salah more but just not sure if he will play

  20. Jellyfish
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    KDB or Sterling for the run in?

    Concerns about rotation and game time for the run in is making me consider switching KDB for Sterling. With Kun out Sterling could go berserk....

    1. Wakanda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      JEsus ?

      1. Jellyfish

        not convinced tbh

    2. Patron
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Kun going berserk? Um he might not finish the season.

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

        Lol my bad, walking and typing sorry, wouldnt be that worried about Sterling tbh

  26. dbeck
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    if i get an early leak that Harvey Barnes doesnt start, which option looks best, i'm looking at Robbo (have trent) and Barnes to which combo for a hit?

    a) Maguire/AWB
    b) Boly (I have Doherty)

    1) Pogba (I have Bruno)
    2) Martial
    3) Rich (I have DCL)

  27. Big Hands Barry
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Martinez a decent set and forget gk? Very cheap and plenty of chances for saves in that team

    1. LIARS POKER
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Can't see any clean sheets 33-36 (Wolves, Leicester, Spurs, Liverpool) and performances aren't even that good against the weaker teams

    2. Pépé sur le P…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      For me, it's the perfect oportunity, yes. For many other, it seems to be a crazy idea "because Arsenal". But they are no worse than Pope's Burnley this season, and Arteta was making progress before the break. Hit by suspension and injury, but at that price, you only need appearance and save points most weeks. The odd CS and bonus thrown in and you'll be laughing.

  28. Mo Mane No Problems
    1 month, 18 days ago

    On WC. Think I’m set but one last dilemma..

    Pope Martin
    TAA Maguire Saiss Lascelles Lowton
    Mane KDB Son Bruno Guendouzi
    Rashford Jimmy DCL

    Would you do Son and Saiss to Bergwijn and Doherty? Anything else jump out so I can get Doherty in?

    1. dbeck
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Rash to Eddie and Guendouzi to Martial saves some money

  29. Steadzz
