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.

    I think this will be my first season with no hits at all...

    1. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Is there a way to look for hits in the history for previous seasons?

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Not for previous seasons.

          Thansk. I need to start having a screenprint of my gameweek history at the end of seasons then.

      Wow.
      I just took a Hit this week to get rid of Salah (to enable Son and Pulisic)!!

        • 3 Years

        Salah is my captain

    Who to captain boys and girls?
    A. Jimi
    B. Auba
    C. Bruno
    D. Salah

    1. puhd
      • 6 Years

      Jimmy for me

      1. puhd
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        But if you have Auba... go for him?

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          Worried he may be benched after FA cup game.

    2. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years

      No point in having Aubamayang if your not going to captain at home to Norwich.

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Rash from those 2 but I’m seriously considering captaining Doherty over Rashford.
      Doherty and Rashford have a higher ceiling than Jimenez.

      1. Gun gun
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Nah nt doherty man. Dont do it.

    Thanks

    1. maratus
      • 6 Years

      I would defo pick auba and downgrade him to jesus next week

    2. Orion
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Would go with Alonso

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Azpili is cheaper and better than Alonso, but for the price difference I'd take Aurier and use 1m+ to upgrade your bench - the 3.9 could be someone useful to cover rotation.

  10. Bobby
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Will rashford and son score more points than bruno and auba this week?

  11. MGD

    Captain Rashford or Jimmy?

    1. After Supper Ghost Stories

    McCarthy
    TAA Doherty Aurier
    Salah KDB Bruno Martial Richa
    Rashford Jimenez

    (3.9 Nketiah Holgate Cathcart)
    0.3m (-4)

    Bench Nketiah (NOR) or Richa (LEI)?

    Richarlison to Mahrez on the cards for GW33 got 0.1m wiggle room so should be able to get him.

    Cheers! 🙂

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years

      Good team Karan.
      Like Mahrej IN plan too

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        And yes, bloody hell I missed triple United attack.
        Lol
        I might join you next GW bro 😀

        1. HollywoodXI
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          As a United fan, do you think Greenwood retains his place?

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 6 days ago

            He will rotate with James. One game each.
            But he's a great finisher. So expect points when he starts vs supposedly bad teams.
            Actually i am also looking at him.
            Will monitor FA cup & league game this GW. And i might shift Jota for him & upgrade midfield too

  14. Bennerman
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    I hate to be a nit-picker, and I'll be shot down no doubt by anyone who can be bothered/doesn't have a life, but there is an incorrect use of the semi-colon in this article.

    The clause has to be independently viable in itself, ie it has to work even if the semi-colon wasn't there.

    It's obviously not a big deal in the grand scheme, but if you write for a living you really ought to know this.

      omg Where !?

      Grammar is a dying art, good to keep people on their toes.

    3. Bennerman
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Ok then, while I'm here and doing a bit of off-duty subbing, why is there a random speech mark in the attribution at the end? (Well obviously it's cut and pasted, but without due care and attention.)

    4. RECKLESS
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Forget there are mistakes in tenses and spellings in most FFS articles. But as we live in a time of ssup and y'all, correcting grammar is considered snobbish

  15. kysersosa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Ballers, G2G?

    Pope
    TAA, Doherty, Aurier
    Man, Son, (M)artial, Bruno, Richarlison
    Nketiah, (V)Jimenez

    Subs: Button, DCL, Lascelles, Taylor

    1. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Excellent

      1. Bennerman
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        I'm not personally keen on Richarlison, I think Everton are 11th (in a poor league this season) for a reason.

        Nketiah I presume is short-term (I do like the look of him) but overall – in my opinion, no better than anyone else's – it's decent for the week ahead.

  16. Killitzer
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Morning all

    Bergwijn to Pulisic for free? The last time I got Pulisic in he was on a roll and then proceeded to not score again till now!

    1. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I would. Man looks electric right now

    2. luk46
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      If he starts in fa cup, will he necessarily start in the league, tho?

    3. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      As long as you have Man U assets, then yes. I was burnt by him too, but he’s becoming a shield so worth it. I’ll probably give it another week and look at it again.

  17. luk46
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Bergwijn to keep? I think he should start more games than bench?!
    Also, not many great options there...

    1. Killitzer
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      See above. Pulisic?

  18. Dannyb
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    KDB to chelsea mid for a one week punt? Or someone else maybe? Have almost no value tied up in Kev and ive got 2 Pool players.

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

      Assume one of your players is TAA?

      1. Dannyb
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah, and Salah

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

          Unless your chasing I’d hold, him and TAA are just as likely to get attacking returns.

    2. Pia06rc
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I'd keep him as recon he will get rested in FA Cup. Just as likely to pick up points as Chelsea mid but far more damage to rank if you don't have him.

  19. Pia06rc
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Thoughts on captaining Doherty today? I'm 50 pts behind in mini-league and see he's had 5 double-digit hauls compared to Jimenez's 3.

    Good idea or over thinking it?

    1. Orion
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Yeah sure... If chasing, that’s worth to try now

    2. Tony Hibbert
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      How is your team set up against theirs? Whats the chip situation?

      1. Pia06rc
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        I've no chips left, he has FH left. He has Saiss and Jimenez vs my Doherty and Jimenez. He has Fernandes vs my Martial & Rashford, but think he's highly likely to bring in Rash for Ings this week as has money itb

  20. Amey
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Who'd you © out of
    Doherty / Jota / Rashford / Bruno / KDB / Mane / Son ?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I'm going Rashford

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        On same.
        Son V©

        I'm having a terrible time so wanted to see what others are doing 😀

    2. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Rashford, Burno or Son I think.

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah
        Team is looking very bad this GW. Lol
        Borderline temptation of playing FH. But not sure as it's my only chip.

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Rashford

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks Holmes.

    4. Stinglikeabee
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I'm chasing so I've gone Son.

  21. kysersosa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Playing TAA, Doherty and Aurier at the back, I am a lot less concerned with CS as feel like I just have 3 mids in defence. The chances of attacking returns are so high.

    Does anyone else look at it this way and does that then effect your team selection when members of your team play against each other. TAA vs KDB being a great example for this week, reading on here some people are thinking of dropping one or the other as opponents this week.

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Fine for Aurier, but for the price of TAA and Doh I'd be wanting returns at both ends.

  22. Lord Flashheart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Is it worth bringing auba for a hit to captain?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      NO

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

      If your doing a serious bit of chasing then yeah!

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Nope

    4. tomasjj
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      No. He is not really on fire.

  23. Agamenmon
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Swap Fernandez for Martial or keep transfer

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Hold Fernandes

    2. tomasjj
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Hold.

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Bruno, Tony and Marcus are all good value at the moment. If you have Bruno (as I do), hold him.

  24. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    1) Surely you Would you start Taa (mci) over Kiko (SOT) or Holgate (LEI) right?

    2) Who to captain from Rashford and Jimenez?

  25. Jason M
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Have 1FT, do I keep the team as is for this GW or roll over? Considering Jota out for Nketiah or DCL?

    And who to captain? Guy says Jimi but early kick off puts me off.

    Pope

    A) Martial
    B) Fernandes
    C) Son
    D) Jiménez
    E) Salah
    F) KDB

    1. Jason M

      I think Bruno is the best pick, people may have been put off him after he blanked home to Sheff Utd

    2. Amey

      Salad

      Bruno.
      Pens and others might not pick him just because he didn't return last game. He has returned in almost all games so far.

    was a toss up between FH and WC - gone FH - thoughts / any changes;

    Martinez
    Doherty AWB PVA
    KDB Pulsic Son Martial
    Rashford Aub(c) Jiminez

    Button Lascelles Lund

    Aub or Jiminez for the armband?

    1. CERVELO
      • 7 Years

      + Saka on bench too

      leading my ML and 22k overall (currently)

    I need to use either WC or FH, Not Wildcarding will cost me 1.5M. Surely I should WC?

    Can anyone suggest as to how to fit in a Spurs player?

      Having spent that on your back line it suggests you need to play 4 at back each week meaning your benched mids and forwards will be expensive.

        Downgrade of VVD and Foden could get Alli in for Sarr....

    Who would you cap out of this lot?

    A) Martial
    B) Jimmy

    1. Amey
