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.

    Guendouzi is a real simp. How he doesn’t get banned for such act is incredible.

    Also claims that he earns more salary than maupay will ever earn.

    Guendouzi salary/wk-£40k
    Maupay salary/wk - £50k

      If his comments are true then he needs to start playing like someone who earns that kind of money.

    2. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • 5 Years

      Why isn’t he getting banned? Isn’t it a clear act of violent conduct if you have your hands around they throat of a player??
      Baffling

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        because he plays for Arsenal

      2. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Exactly. I am confused as well. If it were to be a ref grabbed by the neck, I bet he gets suspended. Corruption

    Anyone on wc getting Jack Robinson in as a 4.0 enabler? Surely will continue to get minutes...

  3. FDMS All Starz
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Chances of Robinson for Sheffield starting from now till the end of the season?

  4. Bishopool

    Looking for differentials and most trustworthy players to catch leaders....

    FH team.

    Pope
    TAA Ritchie Chillwell Doherty (Simpson)
    Salah(C) Bergwijn Fernandes (Hayden, Guend)
    Vardy Ings Jimenez

    Differential options:

    a) Richarlison?
    b) Kane?
    c) Good to go as presented?

    1. OneMan
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I think you need either Rich or Calvent L.

  5. Printing Mane

    A or B?

    A Ritchie (for next 3 GW)

      yes if you captain him, if not then it can wait one more week i feel. I expect Salah to start

      1. MarkoSD
        • 4 Years

        this

    My WC team:

    Pope
    Doherty, van Dijk, Maguire
    Salah(c), Sarr, Sterling, Martial
    DCL, Rashford(vc), Jiménez

    Button, Lascelles, Kiko, Guendouzi

    Going for Sterling + Martial over KdB + Bruno since I'm chasing.

    Good to go chaps?

    Pope

    2. Gravless are for Kinnear
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Aguero injured. Sane out of favour. Why isn't Mahrez in more WC drafts? His points/min ratio is very good. Considering him over Son

      1. _Ninja_
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Aguero and Sane dont really affect Mahrez, its Bernardo Silva he rotates with. Though Mahrez a great option, i think he'll start most games.

        1. Gravless are for Kinnear
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          With Aguero out we could see Sterling play up to. Jesus can't play all the time. Sterling going up top frees up another attacking slot. At least Mahrez is cheap and an easy switch

      2. Pompel
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        No space at the inn. Son is nailed, and has the fixtures, easy swap to Mahrez if I so decide

    3. TeddiPonza
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Which option:

      A. Martinez, Rash and Guendouzi (3rd sub)
      B. Pope, Martial and Greenwood (3rd sub)

      Thanks..

    4. Bruce Lee
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I don't understand the logic behind the lack of Liverpool (in general across FFS). Do people really think Liverpool will just fall flat and stop playing well after they win the league?

      Their first league win in so many years, they'll want to see it out well for their fans. Yes, there will be rotation, but there will be rotation with every team.

      People will say they won't go hard for a 3rd goal if they are 2-0 up. That was the case all season for Liverpool. They were way smarter with their energy this season. If they were 2-0 up to Brighton, why go hard and waste energy for a 3rd when you know you have a tough game next week?

      That's why Liverpool have 66 goals compared to City's 76. In the previous season they were way closer.

      1. Pépé sur le P…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I don't understand your assessment. Most WC RMTs seem to have 2 Liverpool players in.

      2. COK3Y5MURF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I think Liverpool will give us all a reality check this week.

    5. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Last one guys. Plz help. Already have Salah:

      For the next 2-3 weeks

      A) Mane and Traore(saka bench)

      B) Martial and Son

      1. Pompel
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Difficult one - I'd have to say A.

      2. disarrays11
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        B if you already have salah

    6. Pompel
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Final WC decision (maybe..)

      A) Foster + Holgate
      B) McCarthy + Aurier

      1. MarkoSD
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        b

      2. disarrays11

        B

      3. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        B probably. Not a fan of aby of the defences involved but at least aureir can attack

    7. screamer73
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Bottomed. Pick one for the rest of the season.

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

      1. disarrays11
        • 3 Years

        A

    8. disarrays11
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      A) TAA + Aurier + Bergwijn

      B) Gomez + Sais + Son

      1. Steiger
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        A

    9. drughi

      See alot of teams with pope in it, any reason why except fixtures looks good ? Burnley look to be on holiday

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Price mainly

      2. _Ninja_
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        because Pope hates me and will haul every time i dont own him.

      3. Wheato182
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Even when Burnley dont keep a cleanie, he loves a save point, makes him a BPS magnet as well.

      4. Christina.
        • 10 Years

      is it too much to have 3 attacking united players and 3 attacking spurs players in my line up??

      MARTIAL, FERNANDES, RASHFORD
      SON, BERGWIJN, KANE

      thoughts?

      1. GreennRed
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        It is. 15 eggs, 20 baskets

      2. Collie01
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I would say that's too much.

      3. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Too much Spurs yes, maybe berg and son. Not Kane

      4. Railwayman
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Yes. Especially from Spurs, don't think they have so many goals in them.

      5. JamTart
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Too much Spurs, not so bad on United.

        1. gmando2011
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          cool - appreciate the feedback.
          any suggestions on who replaces who
          auba in for kane?
          or
          pepe in for son?

          1. JamTart
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Personally wouldn't have either Auba or Kane, maybe Jiminez or Jesus?

            I'd look to get a city mid in place of Son.

            1. gmando2011
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              good stuff -

              the only reason i dont have city is they have 2 tough fixtures and lots of rotation - agree with not having Auba though

      6. gmando2011
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        which 2 to keep from Rashford, Martial & fernandes?

    15. TeddiPonza
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Martinez worth the risk? Does anyone know how long Leno is out for?

      1. GreennRed
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Up to a year, allegedly.

      2. Pompel
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        nah, you are out of luck if Martinez also gets injured, would incur a hit to swap

    16. Railwayman
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Who is the best Liverpool defender to own at the moment, considering rotation ? Van Dijk looks like he will play almost every minute of the season, but is it wise to go without TAA ? Really could use the money...

      1. GreennRed
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        None of them will bring TAA's attacking returns.

        1. Railwayman
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          That is my fear. Last time I went without him for 1 match was against Leicester away, we all know how tjat went down 🙁

      2. JamTart
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I'm having the same dilemma. TAA is great and can haul against anyone. But with so many teams having good fixtures the money comes in handy. If I was to go elsewhere it would be VvD.

    17. Carlos3
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Need some feedback..

      Jesus + KDB
      Or

          • 2 Years

          Cheers, helps my team to do Son - Mahrez now but feel like it's worth waiting till after Liverpool to bring him in.

    21. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year

      Barnes or Mount?

      1. GreennRed
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Mount.
