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.

    Anyone know what happened Kabasele last match?

  2. Stimps
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Exact funds for Grealish -> Pulisic

    For the next GW, Thoughts?

    1. The Strokes
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I would do it

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      You won't have enough next GW

      1. Stimps
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Can do it after today's deadline

    3. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Sounds like an upgrade. Do it!

    4. Brimble82
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      100%

  3. FPL Kakarot
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Could someone make this captain decision easier for me please?

    Son or Rashford

    1. Stimps
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Rash

      1. The Strokes
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Son

    2. Kroneek
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I have Martial and Bruno - I am captaining Son. Rash is probably the best pick here.

    3. Endhey
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Captaining Son at the moment, even though I have Jimmy and Rashford

  4. The Strokes
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Alert Bench headache!
    Pope
    Alonso – Doherty – Aurier
    Salah – Fernandes – Martial
    Auba - Jimmy
    Button - ? - ? – Holgate
    Play 2 of :
    1. Nketiah ( Nor)
    2. KDB (Liv) might rotate if plays already in cup which is more important for Pep
    3. TAA (City) Huge doubts he will have a CS, playing him only for offensive points is risky
    4. Saka (Nor)

    1. ShackledAce
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      It is illegal to bench TAA and KDB

      1. King Henrik
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        exactly

      2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        This

        1. The Strokes
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          But is it legal to bench players taht will play Norwich?

      3. Brimble82
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        This.
        Nketiah 1st sub.

      4. The Strokes
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I know but City-Liv when title is already decided should be illegal too ...

        1. ShackledAce
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Both will go for the battle, even if the war is decided

  5. MartialMatas
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Good to go?

    Martinez
    VVD Doherty Ritchie
    KDB Son Fernandes Pogba
    Jimenez(c) Rashford DCL

    Alisson Saka Holgate Taylor

    1ft £0.1m

    1. The Strokes
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I'm biaised as I just sold him but I would take Saka or Holgate above DCL also unsure about VVD earning big points against City.

      People dont join the mini league cause they dont want their mates to know they use the site....

    2. The Train Driver
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I have a problem, they all look too good, can't pick one...

  7. Bavarian
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Start Grealish (WOL) or Fernandez (BOU)?

    1. The Strokes
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Fern

    2. Brimble82
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      That's a tough one.
      Villa don't appear to have much fight left in them - but Grealish is playing for 20/21, I'd be tempted to go Grealish, but it's close because BOU looked toothless with CWilson, let alone without him!

      I have doherty and saiss. i am thinking of playing lacelles instead of saiss, will you start lascelles on the bench ?

  10. Weasel51
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Start Saiss or Kiko

    1. KIRA
      • 1 Year

      Saiss

    2. Brimble82

    • 1 Year
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Humour me here...
    On WC, going for a 4-5-1 with a BB33.
    Would you:
    A; Button / Origi
    - Punt on Origi getting minutes vs Villa but no playing GK for BB

    B; Ryan / Connolly
    - Good fixture for BB and would move on after

    Rest of team is:
    Martinez / xxx
    TAA / AWB / Doherty / Aurier / Lascelles
    Salah / KDB / Son / Martial / Bruno
    Jimenez / Nketiah / xxx

    1. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years

      B

    2. bitm2007

      B

    3. ShackledAce
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      B, button is a waste on BB

  12. Blue Gaffer
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Any of these worth it?

    1. DCL & Salah to Aubameyang & Martial -4
    2. DCL & Barnes to Nkietah & Martial -4
    3. Vardy & Barnes to Aubameyang & Saka -4

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      No

  13. bigbudgie
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    If you had raheem sterling would you
    A) keep
    B) transfer - son or pulisic

    1. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      B to Son

    2. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I'd sell. United player, but son/pulisic both good shouts.

    3. real ale madrid
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      same question for KDB?

      1. bigbudgie
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Keep! I have both. Sterling was a punt that didn't pay off this week.

  14. primal33
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Best replacement for Ings due to risk of benching and tough upcoming fixtures. 6.6m budget

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Absolute waste of a transfer

      1. primal33
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        How come? Risk of benching this week then next 3 games are City, Everton and United.

    2. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      There isnt many. DCL and Jota the only two maybe

    3. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Maybe nketiah if money can be used better elsewhere?

      If not, hold.

    4. Brimble82
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I moved him on, but it was as part of a WC.
      Jota could explode at any point, but he gets subbed too often for my liking.

  15. MOZIL
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Rashford + Son or Kane + Martial

    1. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Rash and Son

      1. how now brown cow
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Agreed

    2. Whiskerz
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      2 strikers vs 2 wingers. I'd go Kane Martial.

  16. waltzingmatildas
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Tried looking at stats for captain pick. Options are :
    A) son - shu defence looking poor, but son's stats not looking great. He's not suddenly turned into a bad player so could have a couple of chances.
    B) jimenez - on good form, but avl defence looking stronger
    C) doherty - chance of a clean sheet, plus possibility of attacking returns
    D) martial - great form, Brighton defence looking decent
    E) awb - chance of clean sheet, poss attacking returns

    That maybe suggests a defender for this week and so I'm leaning towards Doherty.
    Anything I'm missing?!

    1. acesingh
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Auba vs nor is my captain...

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Not an option for me!

    2. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Jimenez probably safest, but I'm leaning towards rashford as a non-martial owner.

    3. acesingh
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I would go with Doherty then

  17. acesingh
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Liverpool CS odds 9/2
    NewCastle CS odds 11/5

    I know TAA has more attacking threat but still Lascelles has much better CS odds

    Tough one....

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      TAA all day

    2. Brimble82
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      TAA

    3. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Not even a contest lets be honest

  18. how now brown cow
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Morning all. Please help me decide...

    Which one to play?

    a - Holgate (LEI)
    b - Kiko (SOU)
    c - Lascelles (bou)

    1. acesingh
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Lascelles

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      C

    3. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I'd actually go with Kiko from those because I dont think the quick turnaround suits Ings and he's basically Southampton's goals. Home fixture. Close enough call between him and Holgate but yeah I'd go with Kiko. Good luck.

  19. juanmata8
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Play De Gea or Martinez?

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Norwich look really poor. Martinez

  20. Sead’s Colossal Snatc…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Correct starting XI? Bench order? 0FT 0.6ITB.

    Martinez
    AWB TAA Doherty
    KDB Salah Bruno Pulisic Martial (C)
    Jota Jimenez

    Pope DCL Lascelles Jimenez

    Pope for Martinez? DCL for Jota? Jimenez safer captain?

  21. Better Call Raul
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Start Lascelles or Lundstram?

    1. King Henrik
      • 8 Years

      Lascelles

    2. The Senate
      • 2 Years

    What's the thoughts on kane?

    I'm chasing my rival by 40points and there's no way he can afford him.

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I dont see kane getting hattricks/doubles the way spurs are currently playing, and at that price youd want them.

  24. Akey678
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Lloris or De Gea?

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      DDG

  25. Blue Moon Rising
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Sterling and H Barnes to Son and Pulisic (-4)?

    Have De Bruyne and on Wildcard next gweek

  26. RamaJama
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Which captain?
    A) Rashford
    B) Jimenez
    C) Martial

    1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I am going with A

      But if I had C, I would go with him

    2. Oggle22
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I have A and C Currently on Rash got no bottle to go Martial to inconsistent

  27. Zero
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Currently rank 150 and don't want to blow it... on a WC, which looks better, A or B?

    A - Defense Heavy
    Patricio - Martinez
    TAA - Doherty - AWB - Aurier (Alonso)
    KdB - Pulisic - Martial (Son - Saka)
    Rashford - Jimenez (Nketiah)

    B - Attack Heavy
    Patricio - Martinez
    TAA - Doherty - AWB - Aurier (N Williams)
    KdB - Pulisic - Martial (Mahrez - Guendouzi)
    Rashford - Jimenez (Kane)

    Thanks very much.

      Man I thought for a sec you were suggesting Kane on the bench

  28. Oggle22
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Sterling and Kelly to Traore and TAA -8?

  29. KP - FPL
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Who do you think is a better captain pick this week mate? Son or Rash?

    If it helps, my rival who is 28 points behind will likely go Rash captain!

    1. Oggle22
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I've gone Rash but I don't own son
