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.

    should we be looking to avoid City and Liverpool assets from now on?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Nope

      1. tomasjj
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        No.

  2. Alisson WondHaaland
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Thoughts on WC?

    Foster
    Aurier Maguire Doherty
    Traore Son Fernandes Pulisic Mane
    Jimenez Rashford

    Martinez DCL Holgate Lowton

    1.1 ITB

    Going for some slight risky picks since I need to catchup to my rival.
    Any suggestions for improvements would be appreciated

    1. Mike82
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Sorry magure to awb spot on otherwise

      1. Alisson WondHaaland
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Why so? Maguire has goal threat and is 0.1 cheaper. AWB rarely gets attacking returns and when he does its an assist at most

    2. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Who's your cap?

      1. Alisson WondHaaland
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        On Son atm. Might switch to Jimi or even Mane

      Jiminez

    2. tomasjj
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I have all of those and went with Rashford.
      Plenty of good options, so if you have seen them play lately, go with that.

    3. sandman58
      • 2 Years

      KDB at home and on pens and set pieces

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

        Go Martial but (v) a non Utd player

    6. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      D, have a hunch

  6. Mike82

  7. KAPTAIN KANE

    Morning guys, A or B please? A is for -4 and B is -8

    A) -4
    McCarthy
    Taa | Lundstram | SAISS
    Salah | Kdb | Mcginn | Cantwell
    Kane | AUBA | Vardy

    Button | Lascelles | DOUGLAS LUIZ | Elmohamady

    McCarthy
    Taa | Lundstram | DOHERTY
    Salah | KdB | Mcginn | Cantwell | MARTIAL
    Kane | Vardy

    Button | Lascelles | GREENWOOD | Elmohamady

    Reason for hit is owning Aguero* and Hanley* in a thin defense.

    Thanks

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Aub over Martial this week bigger upside than Doherty over Saiss

  8. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Lads little help please, do I do Richarlison to Pulisic, save or something else?

    Martinez,3.9
    VvD,Aurier,Doherty,Lascelles,3.9
    Mane,Richarlison,Bruno,Son,Saka
    Jimmy,Rashford,DCL

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I am saving. Richa has 3 double-digits haul at home. Definitely worth another week against slumping Leicester

    2. Belli2007
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I think that is a good shout given you have DCL as well

    3. Tony Hibbert
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Everton has a nice bit of rest before Leicester I'd expect them to be less jaded this time out.

      1. Bennerman
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        I had Tony Hibbert in my fantasy team about 20 years ago, when I was green in the gills.

        Jesus, I've learned a lot and the game has changed a lot.

        1. Tony Hibbert
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Was never much of a fantady option.

          More interested in carp fishing these days.

          1. Bennerman
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            No, he was terrible, I don't know what I was thinking. Presumably cheap as chips and a filler, I hope that was my reasoning.

  9. faux_C
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    For one week only,:
    TAA + Boly or PVA + Doherty

      To start this week B, long term A

  12. EWH2020
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Feel like I will need to downgrade either Salah or KDB to improve rest of my squad.

    Which one is more important?

  13. sandman58
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Wheres the KDB love for the captaincy???....any reason why nobody seems to be giving him the armband??

    1. Goooo Rickie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Great point. Going a bit under the radar but I guess it's rotation risk?

      1. sandman58
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Surely he plays v Liverpool
        Best player in the league or one of

    2. Bennerman
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      For me personally, just because of the hard fixture.

      I'll prob cap a United player v Brighton (they were really shyyte in the last game I watched, already forgotten who against but they were going backwards by the second half)

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Leicester

      2. Belli2007
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Leicester......and they weren't firing either whereas united seem to be...

    3. tomasjj
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Not a bad shout.
      Is in outstanding form, but rest coming in?

      1. sandman58
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        He was rested v Burnley

    4. DARE TO BISCAN
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Liverpool are the better team. Pep may sulk and play a weakened team. Lots of other options out there.

      1. sandman58
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Klopp may mess about with team too.....KDB may get a rest in F.A cup

        1. DARE TO BISCAN
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Certainly another hypothetical option.....

  14. Rik Waller
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Thinking of starting Nketiah over Jesus. We thinking he's gonna start?

    1. barracuda
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      He looked good midweek, don't you think he starts tomorrow and rested v Norwich?

    2. Goooo Rickie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I think he will with Lacazette starting the FA Cup, Arteta seems to really like him. Even if he doesn't start, he should get 20-30 mins at the back end of the game.

  15. The_FF_King
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Hey guys, on my wildcard, any advice?

    Martinez

    TAA / Aurier / Doherty

    KDB / Salah / Bruno / Martial

    Nketiah / Rashford / Jiminez

    Sub order: Saka / Holgate / Lascelles

    Gk sub is just a 3.9 as don’t have good team value

    0.1 in the bank

    1. End of King Wilson
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Looks solid with the popular players around here; you are hedging on Man Utd's attack as a differential, any plan B should that not pay off?

      1. Bennerman
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        That's not hedging, though, is it? Unless I misunderstand the term?

      2. The_FF_King
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        I’ll keep the three for next 2 games as fixtures are juicy. Depending how it goes I would then look to remove at least 1 and get someone else in

  16. Atimis
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Which one would you play from Kiko, Holgate and Lascelles ?

    1. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Lascelles for me.

      Just picking the one I can see getting a CS - Can see Ings being a problem for Watford, Leicester can always be a danger (especially if they try to turn this form around) and Lascelles is up against a lacklustre Bournemouth attack who have Callum Wilson suspended.

    2. Lumberjack
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Kiko I think

  17. barracuda
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Why Mane over Salah?

    1. DARE TO BISCAN
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Why Salah over Mane (I have Salah)?

      1. barracuda
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Looking for some comprehensive comparison tool, would probably C Mane if I had him.

    2. Belli2007
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Thought Mane looked sharper against Palace than Salah but not a lot in it........

      1. Belli2007
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        And seemed to be reflected in BPs

  18. Lindelol
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Start one
    1. Holgate
    3. DCL
    4. Lascelles

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

      DCL

    2. tomasjj
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      The striker.

    3. Lumberjack
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      3

  19. Mike82
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Thoughts on this, no wildcard or FH.

    Henderson
    Walker, Saiss, Fernandez
    B.Fernandes, KdB, Grealish, Saka
    Auba (C), Rashford, Jiminez

    Leno, McGinn, Egan, Lunny

    1. A Kun & Mateta
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Looks gtg, same mid and attack as mine (after I get Jimmy in for - 4).

      1. Mike82
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        worried by my lack of scousers and abundance of blades and villa ha

  20. EWH2020
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    KDB/Salah to Pulisic -4?

    1. Mike82
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      After this week I think

    2. EWH2020
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      It's a -4 hit that I am planning to take next week anyone to upgrade Saka to Martial

    3. tomasjj
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Wait one week.

  21. Vlad Tepes
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Jesus and Martial or Rashford and Mahrez. Currently on the latter

    1. Mike82
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      coin toss on City assets from here on out

    2. Aubaaaaa
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      The latter

  22. subhojit123
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Hey guys..need a bit of help here.current team -
    Hendo
    TAA seiss lascelles
    Salah KDB Bruno Cantwell
    Rashford jiminez Abraham

    Bench - Leno, lundstrum,Egan, guendouzi

    Already did Rashford in this week.
    Is it worth doing
    Lundstrum -> Doherty for a -4?

  23. SerieD
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Auba or Kane?

    Trying to catch up rivals. Both are good picks considering that.

    1. SerieD
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I do have Aurier and Son

    2. Lumberjack
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Kane

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Auba for this week. After that Kane.

    4. iveseenitall
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Auba particularly for this week if you plan on captaining him

    5. Mike82
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Kane probably overall

    6. SerieD
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I could take Auba for this round and then ft to Kane. Now Jimenez has armband in my team.

      Whole WC team:
      Martinez ( De Gea)
      Alonso, Doherty, Aurier (Saiss, Fernandez)
      Son, KDB, Martial, Son, Saka, Pulisic
      Kane, Jimenez (Nketiah)

      G2G, with Kane to auba and after this round same transfer backwards?

  24. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Good morning fam! FH team! GTG?

    Martinez
    Doherty Alonso Aurier
    Salah KDB Son Martial
    Auba(C) Jimenez Nketiah

    XX Lamptey Robinson XX

    1. Goooo Rickie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Why are you so sure Alonso starts?

      1. SerieD
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Not sure but likely imo.

  25. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Aubemayang nailed on against Norwich?

    1. George James
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Will let you know at 12pm tomorrow

  26. subhojit123
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    How nailed is pulisic to start against westham?

  27. barracuda
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Vardy/Son to Mane/Nketiah for a hit?

    1. Belli2007
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      not for a hit

      1. barracuda

          Ah, ok.....I have armband on Mane so can't disagree with that but also have Son and wouldn't want to lose him right now....

          I have Nketiah too and is in my starting line up today so reason to go for it would be captain choice
