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.

    Anywhere to improve this WC team?

    DDG - Martinez
    TAA - Doherty - Aurier - Boly - Lundstram
    Salah - KDB - Fernandes - Martial - Saka
    Jimenez - DCL - Nketiah

    Still have FH and BB left to use. 0 ITB

    1. Pumpy Pro

      Benching nightmare

      1. No Pirlo No Party
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Oh it is, but the two Arsenal boys are rotation risks so will be mostly benched. Still have BB for when it's suitable. And where else would you upgrade to strengthen the 11? Only obvious omission I can see is Son...

        1. The Strokes
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          My actual team is nearly the same but I got rid of DCL yesterday.
          He always plays but never scores when I own him and the next matches of Everton are not easy ones.

          1. No Pirlo No Party
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Who did you replace him with?

          2. waterboy
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Thanks for selling him. I was going to as well but I'll keep him now, if it was all your fault he wasn't scoring. 😉

        2. Pumpy Pro
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Son is playing left wing back at moment. I wouldn't worry too much mate

    2. DAZZ
      • 6 Years

      Lundstram is done

      1. No Pirlo No Party
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Had since GW1. He's 4.0 essentially. Any better options out there around that price?

        1. The Strokes
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Same here but has already long gone

    3. Concrete
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      One wolves def spread risk if have bb left

    4. The Strokes
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      If you BB this week then looks great

    5. Obi Wan Elokobi
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I only had 4.4 from Lund and swapped to Lascelles

      1. No Pirlo No Party
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Yeah I can sell for 4.4. Tempting move actually as I cannot see a time when Lundstram will be played until the last 2 GW's at the earliest. Thanks for the suggestion.

    6. Indio
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Do you really need GK cover? Martinez > fodder and that might help Lunds become Lascelles or Holgate.

      1. No Pirlo No Party
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Not really no. More of a luxury and could be played this week and will be useful when BB'ing. Open to downgrading but not sure where the 0.4 could strengthen?

        I have 4.4 for Lunstram so can move to either of those two now and have 0.1 change left over. I think this is the move to make.

        1. Indio
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Forgot about BB. If you have 4.4 from Lunds anyway, then yep that's the move! Good luck.

          1. No Pirlo No Party
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Thanks for your input. Good luck to you too!

    7. No Pirlo No Party
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Thanks to everyone for your input, very helpful.

      I have decided to do Lund > Holgate and stick with the rest (for now).

      Always TAA

      1. Mambino
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        this - I can't believe I've hardly owned him this season - won't make that mistake next season

  4. Mr. Mystic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    1FT, worth doing Mane -> Salah?

    1. dbeck
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      No, save

      1. Mr. Mystic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Thanks mate

  5. Van der Faart
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    What to do here? Considering WC as it's a bit of a mess.

    Ederson Leno
    TAA Lundy Egan Saiss Elmohamedy
    Son KDB Bruno Saka Barnes
    McBurnie Rash Jimi

    3 Sheff Utd, 1 keeper and defence is weak WC is the best move? 3.2m ITB.

    1. popcoin
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Was gonna say I’d be happy with that if I upgraded McBurnie but can’t see many options

      1. Van der Faart
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Cheers. Struggling for a captain option this week and concerned about no Liverpool attacker too.

  6. popcoin
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Start 2:

    A) TAA
    B) Soyuncu (eve)
    C) Taylor (cpl)

    1. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      AC

    I hope the weather will change, It is too hot for the players to perform at high level...I hope the weather will change, It is too hot for the players to perform at high level...

    1. Bennerman
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      What, like in, say, Italy or Brazil, where the players are renowned for being rubbish?

    2. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Or has it already changed in the England? Here in Denmark its still around 30 degrees...

      1. Bennerman
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        My point is that players play brilliant in much hotter temperatures, eg Italy/Spain/Brazil/take your pick

        Agree it's not premium but it doesn't preclude playing well, they won't all be asleep.

        1. fc_skrald
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Yes of course. But I guess many players in PL are not used to the high temperatures...

          1. Bennerman
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            It's a league of many heritages, very many of whom are used to much warmer countries!

            Plus it does get hot in England anyway, contrary to the myth

    3. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Errr where do you live?!

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        I think I will melt. Copenhagen Denmark, it is simply too much

        1. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Somewhere I am well overdue visiting, it's on the list but the list always seems so long and time so short.

        2. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Well it’ll be lucky to break 20c today and less up north!

    Hoping for early team news on Villa v Wolves. If Jota benched would you take - 4 and get Nketieh and play ? Or might Jota off bench potentially be good option

    Would give funds for Barnes to Mahrez next week if made switch and would be taking -4 to do next week anyway

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I am hoping Jota (Wolves) is benched tbh. I want to see Wolves play Neto, Jimenez, Traore front three, with Doherty, Boly, Coady, Saiss and Jonny as the defence.

      If that happens, then I will go Jimenez(c).

      1. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        If benched I'd be tempted with a hit.

        Think I'm doing jota to nketiah for free whatever team news is.

        Gives me 2ft and lots of cash to do pretty much anything for gw33

    2. Concrete
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Yes

  9. FDMS All Starz
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Who to captain? Thinking of a cheeky Aurier punt?

    A) Aurier
    B) Mane
    C) Fernandes
    D) Jimenez
    E) Son

    1. Concrete
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      D or E

  10. TAT
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    I'm in a strange situation with my team, where I'm either likely to captain Aubameyang or take him out for a hit for Rashford. What should I do?

    Down from 97 849 to 163 235 in two GW's, so, I have nothing to lose now anyway.

    1. Concrete
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Capt

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Leaning towards doing so. If I decide on taking a hit, then I'm captaining Jiménez.

  11. HMFC1874
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    I Willian a better option than Pulisic? He's on pens and seems to play regularly.

    1. dbeck
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Has his contact been sorted? If not that would worry me

      1. ZoumasBloomers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Yep, he signed a short extension

    2. popcoin
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I think it totally depends on Pulisic’s minutes. Puli consistently gets more points per minute but Willian plays more so so far they’ve evened out

    3. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Pulisic better goal threat

  12. Irish Villan 1985
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Is captaining Salah away to City nuts?

    1. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Not madness but depends on your other options available

      1. Irish Villan 1985
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Rash, Jimi, Kane being the main ones mate, thoughts?

    2. Irish Villan 1985
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      A lot of teams play in FA cup before their PL fixtures so should we consider injuries?

    3. dbeck
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Generally there are goals in this game, I don’t hate mo cap

      1. Irish Villan 1985
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Thanks mate!

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        I prefer to see real actors.

    4. Concrete
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      No but the odds aren’t as good as others

      1. Irish Villan 1985
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Thanks mate

    5. popcoin

      Just go for it why not

    6. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I am, think he will do well and Pool will want to put on a show

    7. FOO FIGHTER
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Not at all. Klopp will go all out to win the match.

      • C_Manan
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Not at all, City Defense looks stretched atm with extra FA Cup fixtures

      • Gideons Rolling Another One
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Is Leno to Martinez for -4 worth it, other playing keeping is McCarthy?

        1. dbeck
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Not for a hit

        2. Concrete
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          If you have a bb left and no wc probably,but McCarthey isn’t too bad

        3. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          No IMO. After NOR, Arsenal fixtures get tougher. You'd prefer a different keeper for then IMO.

        4. Gideons Rolling Another One
          • 5 Years

          I did Leno > DDG this week for a -4 as my other goalkeeper was Nyland.

      • Concrete
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        WC as want to double up on Salah and Mane in 33 and BB. Foregoing KdB for the next two as chasing in mini league. Will get him back for Mane in 34

        Pope Martínez
        TAA Doherty Lascelles Taylor xxx
        Salah Maxim xxx xxx xxx
        Rashford Jim Nketiah

        A Maguire, Martial, Son
        B Aurier, Martial, Fernandes..

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          KDB, last time I removed him he got 19 points, good luck, I foresee a rank dip.

          1. Concrete
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Cheers...high risk isn’t it. It’s him or Son and Son is a huge diff in ML and will capt

            Soton away is the only worry but the way we are away from home I can’t see a huge score

        2. Van der Faart
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          I would not remove KDB

        3. FOO FIGHTER
            1 month, 17 days ago

            I have both Mane and Salah no City and intend to keep it that way till further notice.

            Will keep tabs on Mahrez though.

          Start 1

          A) TAA(mcy)
          B) Lasc(bou)
          C) Nketiah(NOR)
          D) Pulisic(whm)

          1. Concrete
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            A

          2. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            I'd always start A, but you have to find a way to play D if you can this week too - just to give yourself a chance of nabbing any return he may or may not get.

          3. Corgzzzz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            Bench boost ??

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Taylor or Fernandez? If Newcastle get destroyed in the FA cup I can see them throwing in the towel in the league

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Why? Bruce fighting for his job surely? A lot of motivation to get in the top 10. Don’t see it personally. Fernandez.

          Ings + Jota > Rashford + Nketiah for -4?

          Would mean playing Sako/Nketiah every week OR going 442 with two of Holgate/Lascelles/Kiko.

          Start:

            I’d go with the attacker - I think Laca plays FA Cup and Nketiah plays Norwich

          One place left in team, which most likely:
          DCL to score against LEI,
          Ward clean sheet at BUR or
          Saka assist against NOR

          Lamptey. Played for Brighton in the last match and costs 4.0. Anyone know if he is likely to start again? I could do with a ngakia replacement - i think i will need my subs this week

          1. Bennerman
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Don't know his squad status as not a Brighton expert but for what it's worth I personally thought he played really well and if he lost his place I'd be scratching my head who for.

          a) ings + martial + son + 4 points
          b) rashford + martial + 8.4 mid

          Which do you fancy??

          Very unlikely but say if we find out before deadline jiminez is benched,

          Would u:

          A) sell him (bought at 8.2 so no real loss in value)

          B) bench him for saka/lacelles

          C) start him

          1. Kroneek
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            B

          2. C_Manan
              1 month, 17 days ago

              C, who says Jimi cant score from the bench

            So who's your captain?
            Am I safe to (C) Auba?

            What is the reckoning with Mane owners...
            I am having mane on SV 12.0, but salah seems to be at the end of everything during the last match.

            So keep or twist to salah or get both?

            Thank you in advance 🙂

            1. Bennerman
              • 2 Years

              I personally just sold him. But reluctantly, and knowing he'll make me wince over it at least once before season is done.

              But I needed to spread money and he made way, I kept Salah.

              They’ve got city followed by villa 3 days later which screams rotation.

              I might bring in origi for villa

            My teams got a RMT score of less than 50 and a season low 4 Scout Picks. I and am extremely tempted to FH to the Scout Picks team with Pope and TAA instead of Martinez and Pulisic. Yes or no ? I could captain either Jimenez or Auba

            Pope
            TAA, Kiko, Holgate
            Salah, KDB, Son, Bruno
            Rashford, Jimenez (c), DCL

            to

            Pope
            TAA, Doherty, PVA, Aurier
            KDB, Martial, Son
            Auba, Jimenez, Rashford

            Button, Saka, Lescelles, 4.4m mid
