FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

The third round of our FFS Cup was played out in Gameweek 31+ and now just 64 Fantasy managers remain in contention.

There’s no respite for those involved as the fourth round takes place in Gameweek 32+, the deadline for which is at 11.30am BST on Saturday.

ALL RESULTS FROM THE THIRD ROUND CAN BE VIEWED HERE
THE FULL DRAW FOR THE FOURTH ROUND IS AVAILABLE TO VIEW HERE

Wild Rover is still flying the flag for our former winners, having seen off Euroalien – who had been inside the top 1k as of the Gameweek 31+ deadline – in the round-of-128.

It wasn’t a great week for managers lurking inside the top 1,000, with rdamjan and Forza, currently ranked at 30th and 643rd respectively, also exiting the competition.

billybly is our highest-ranked FPL boss left in the cup, with his score of 105 easily good enough to see off sirakhun and sufficient to move him up to 660th in the world.

Having scored 141 points in Gameweek 30+, stamfordbridge bowed out in unfortunate circumstances after a 60-60 draw with __simdy; the latter’s superior rank seeing them through to a last-64 tie with the aforementioned billybly.

Annie also lost out on a tie-breaker after a 78-all draw with Mighty Wings.

baingaboyz was arguably even more luckless, being edged out by two points despite racking up a triple-figure score of 103.

We’ve got an all-top 2k clash in the round-of-64, with Hellraisers facing Dial Square.

Every single one of our remaining 64 managers is ranked inside the top 300,000.

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.

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No, that is normal.

  9. masyuris

    Without europe league, will Greenwood be permanent starter for rest fixtures EPL?

    1. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
      • 2 Years

      Still a bit of rotation I reckon, but will start most

  10. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
    • 2 Years

    Suggestions?

    Should I play Traoré instead of Nktiah? Im chasing 30 point gab in my league, ranked 55000

    Pope
    Boly - TAA - Maguire
    Mount - Fernandes - Mane - Martial
    Nktiah - Jimenéz - Kane (C)

    Mcharty - Traoré - Lascalles - Stephens

    Thanks

    Is this team G2G

    Ramsdale

    Leno DCL Stevens Egan

    &

    Who should I give the armband to out of

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Yes good to go. I would captain Aubameyang if I had but I would transfer out Leno if you have a FT even if it’s to Martinez

  13. WE GO FOR IT
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Martinez
    Aurier Doherty TAA

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    My Early transfer for GW 33++ to enable Barnes >> Martial:
    A. TAA >> Coleman
    B. Doherty >> Holgate
    C. Salah >> Mahrez / Pulisic
    D. KdB >> Mahrez / Pulisic

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Reluctantly C.

      Would want to keep all those at the moment though.
      See how Liverpool lineup now that they’ve won the league.
      Can you not downgrade a striker?

      1. masyuris
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Striker:
        Jimenez - DCL - Greenwood

        I will play formation 3-5-2 for rest of season

        1. masyuris
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          My current formation:
          Pope - Martinez
          TAA - Doherty - Aurier - Ritchie - Saiss
          Salah - KdB - Son - Bruno - Barnes
          Jimenez - DCL - Greenwood

          Yes, I prefer play 3-5-2 or 4-4-2

          1. The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            How much do you need to upgrade Barnes > Martial?
            Maybe think about Richie,Aurier downgrade to fund.

            Personally I like your team as it is with the exception of Barnes.

            If your desperate though to get Martial a Salah or Son sacrifice would do it but your replacing good players for good players which seems a waste of a transfer.

        2. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          That’s difficult then.
          Can’t suck any funds from that forward line.

  15. The 12th Man
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Captain Rashford v Brighton or Doherty v Villa?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 23 days ago

      I still can’t decide - I’ve got it on doherty atm.

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Think I’m doing Lundstrum > Doherty if we get mews on early teams and will captain him.

    2. Orion
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Don’t cap Doherty if you’re not chasing... Go safe with Rash, it’s still a differential...

  16. greggles
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Any thoughts on this wildcard to offer? I am 62 pts behind in my ML, with all other chips intact.

    Ederson / Martinez
    Alonso / Doherty / Saiss / Lascelles / Aurier
    Mahrez / Saka / Bruno / Martial / Pulisic
    Rashford / Aubameyang / Jimenez

    Tried to go for a balanced squad so BB is more useful, and for players with something to play for/explosive players who will get minutes in the rotation bonanza.

  17. -GK22-
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    GTG? Bench order okay as not sure if Ritchie is injured or not

    McCarthy
    TAA, Saiss, Ritchie
    Salah, KDB, Bruno, Martial, Son
    Jimenez (c), DCL

    3.9, Greenwood, lascelles, Robinson

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah it’s fine

  18. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    First WC draft.
    WC 33, BB 34.

    Lloris Martinez
    TAA VvD Doherty AWB Taylor
    KdB Mahrez Martial Sarr Foden
    Rashford Jimenez DC-L

    0.2 ITB

    Seem pretty happy with this.
    What would you suggest?

    1. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Triple City is slightly risky with their priorities being Europe and the FACup, and nothing else to play for. Chelsea or Spurs asset instead?

  19. merin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Save or use the FT? If use, What would you change?

    Pope Button

  20. CERVELO

    have the free hit chip still to play - this as good a week as any to use?

    Current Team;

    Pope Leno
    Doherty TAA Lascelles Lund Ngakia
    KDB Mahrez Mount Pepe Grelish
    Jimenez Aub DCL

    Have 2 FT this week too?

    Still have BB and wildcard - what to do??

  21. ZAWAd25

    Thoughts of this FH team?

    Martinez
    Doherty Alonso Van Aanholt
    Son KDB Pulisic Martial
    Jimenez (V) Rashford Aubamayang (C)

    2.0 itb to play with
    (Guendouzi 3.9 3.9)

    Any tips appreciated!

    1. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      This seems like a strange week to FH due to FA cup fixtures, lots of rotation risk which means your bench could play?

      1. ZAWAd25
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        my team did not look good for this week, upgrade bench?

        1. kysersosa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          If your ahead in your ML I would yes, if your playing catch up role the dice and keep your team as is. Maybe get Nketiah on your bench, Lascelles, Taylor all likely to play and cheap. BOL

          1. ZAWAd25
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Thanks mate! Cheers,

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Bruno over Pulisic for me even if you downgrade at the back. Big rotation risk at Chelsea with packed midfield choice and cup game against Leicester

      Get a valid bench choice imo - chances are you’ll lose one first teamer

  22. Felix Navidad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Worth doing Jesus to Rashford for -4?

    1. Vazza

        No

      • kysersosa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Probably more nailed, but could be rested with FA cup.

      Man, Son, (M)artial, Bruno, Richarlison

        I’m not expecting any returns from Jota today. If he starts, that’d be a gift in itself.

        Vardy owners what are you doing?
        1) Hold
        2) Hit to get Kane!(downgrade Salah to KDB)
        I am not saying Rashford option as I already 'stuck' with Martial as my third player.
        3) Who else if have DCL and Jim?

        1. MARJE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 23 days ago

          I’m holding Vardy this week. Will reassess with 2FT. I have Maguire, Martial and Fernandes. Would love Rashford so may do Maguire->Aurier or Fernandes->Mahrez.

      • BananaMan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Anyone else here considering benching KDB this week??
        Also, double Wolves defence or play Lascelles ahead of Saiss??

        Pope
        TAA - Doherty - Saiss
        Martial - Bruno - Pulisic - Son
        Rash - Jimi(C) - Nketiah

        Martin - KDB - Lascelles - Ngakia

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          1. Jesus NO! I'd play him ahead of Eddie.
          2. If you have faith in Wolves defence, play both. If you don't, why have either?

          1. BananaMan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            1. I know, I know it just feels wrong but I can see him getting limited minutes in a game they can't be arsed to play against a team that will be wanting to prove a point.
            2. Doherty starts regardless of who they are playing, he's an attacking mid in defenders clothing. I suppose it's a question of spreading the risk to pick up clean sheet points with the others. Saying that, I spread the risk last week and Lacelles gave me one point!

          Think that's a solid template team, with all bases covered. Bench is fodder so hopefully all start/feature. Depending on your position in your ML's maybe move the arm band fir more of a gamble?

            I’m first in all my MLs, so not sure how much gambling I want to do.
