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.

    Rash or Jim for C?

    1. HUATSHOOTER
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Still thinking! Now on jimmy!

    2. The Train Driver
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      50/50 for me, but I'm going to watch the man utdd game so therefore Rash..

    3. bigdip
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      i'm going Rash. Jimi is tempting though

    4. iveseenitall
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Ive went jiminez purely because his away form is better. But i think rashfords ceiling is higher

    5. Old Gregg
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I guess the decision is.

      Jimi- save pick. Guaranteed start. Assist or goal

      Rash - slight risk of rotation. Higher reward. Could be explosive

  2. HUATSHOOTER
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Anyone scared about captain jimmy and if he do nth, you gt nth to look forward to?

    1. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      That’s why I’m captaining Salah lol

    2. beric
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yeah totally. I never captain anyone in the early game. Salah for me

      1. Tony Hibbert
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Why Salah Beric whats the thinking?

        1. beric
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Hey tony! My thinking is that no one in my team is a stand out choice, ans liverpool will be on a high. I think he will be motivated to do over city and we know that city are more than capable of shipping goals.

          Im not overly confident in it tbh but prefer him to son, bruno etc.

          Hope youre well old friend!

          1. Tony Hibbert
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            I like the thinking and do think it could be an open game. But i dint know just can't commit to it. In a week like this when theres no obvious choice backing Salah is never udually a bad move.

            Things are good bud. On the move the last two gws up to about 30k with wildcard team from last week and free hit hopefully i push on for top 10k.

            This seems to be a hard week on paper though.

            How's your team?

            1. beric
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              Not too bad man but not as good as it used to be! This is my first full season playing properly for a few years, am around 60k. Just wanna win my ML and am about 80 ahead...hopefully can hang on!

              Good luck with then top 10k man!

              1. Tony Hibbert
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                80 ahead? Your home and hosed.

                Easy peasy to you.

                1. beric
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 9 days ago

                  Cheers bud! Ill not get complacent though, my rival takes it pretty seriously lol

                  1. Tony Hibbert
                    • 7 Years
                    1 month, 9 days ago

                    Has he a top 500 and top1k finish?

                    Don't think so haha

                    1. beric
                      • 8 Years
                      1 month, 9 days ago

                      Hahaha, nice to speak to you dude!

  3. iveseenitall
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Start ritchie or saiss?

    Rest of defence is patricio, taa, maguire,

    1. Hiddenpaw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Saiss

  4. DAZZ
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Foolish going Doherty (c)? Or is it a popular choice

    1. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Good differential

    2. The King Wilson return
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Good shout, villa seem to have forsaken some attacking chaos for defensive stability

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Generally a bad choice to captain a defender, but he's hauled 6 GWs in a row now and is up against a very leaky defence, so this could be a good week to take that risk.

  5. The_FF_King
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    On wildcard, final decision:

    A) Salah and Nketiah

    B) Son and DCL

    1. Bennerman
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Will you be bench-boosting at any point?

      1. The_FF_King
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Already used bench boost so no

    2. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      A

    3. DARE TO BISCAN
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Will they both be starting in your team?

      1. The_FF_King
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yep

    4. Maradona
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      A

      Don’t think DCL looks as sharp as he did pre-lockdown and Nketiah at Norwich could go well.

  6. Pomp and Circumstance
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    is having Bruno, Martial, and Rashford too much Man Utd? or is having all 3 a good strategy?

    1. OLEgend
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Good considering the form and fixtures,relatively cheap as well.

    2. Lindelol
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I have gone with this strategy but might move out Bruno after this match

    3. Maradona
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Too much. Bruno and one of the other two. They’ll score similar points so pick one and stick with it in my opinion.

    4. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Good with the fixtures, prices and form.

    5. iveseenitall
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Not too much at all ive gone for 2 and a defender but their fixtures are great and i dont think there will be too much rotation.

    6. The King Wilson return
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I think the defense offers greater value should they continue the clean sheets but there are little alternatives in midfield with the same form and fixtures. Perhaps mahrez after Liverpool which would be an easy switch

    7. Bennerman
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      United have best fixtures out of anyone and are potentially very dangerous. I personally think three is an absolute must from now onward.

    8. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Getting all 3 for the Bournemouth game and will see how it goes. Easy switch to a City player if it's too much.

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

    Considering saving the FT, thoughts?

    Patricio
    TAA - Doherty - Aurier
    Mane - Kdb - Fernandes - Son - Richarlison
    DCL - Jimenez

    Subs: Martins - Kiki - Connolly - Simpson

    1. beric
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I would definitely save

    2. barracuda
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Save

  8. Nightf0x
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Martinez
    Taa taylor sais (lascels kiko)
    Bruno mane son kdb (guendozi)
    Vardy jimi rash

    Which?

    A) roll ft
    B) vardy guendozi -4 to nketiah puli
    C) taa guendozi -4 to boly puli

    1. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Roll.

    2. Maradona
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Stick because who would you bench? Probably B if you must but shame to bench Nketiah in his best fixture of the rest of the season.

  9. Orion
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Please help guys...
    Play one of:
    A) Ward
    B) Lascelles
    C) Taylor
    and
    1) Traore
    2) Saka
    Cheers!

    1. OLEgend
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      B2

  10. The Reptile
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Pope (Button)
    Doherty/ TAA/ Fernandez (Femenia, Robinson)
    Fernandes/ Son/ Salah/ KDB (Dend)
    Jimi/ Rashford/ DCL

    Thinking of DCL to Nketiah for this week as need Arsenal cover but can’t get Auba

    Anyone doing the same? Nor sure if he starts, that’s the danger.

  11. tique
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Chances on lundstram starting?

    Have to pick one of Targett, lundstram and Egan to start for me. Have Henderson in goal... Thoughts?

  12. SerieD
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

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

    Trying to catch rival so need to take some risk.

    G2G?

    1. Maradona
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Got to start Nketiah over Saka.

      1. SerieD
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Check. Might be good.

    2. The_FF_King
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Two sons?

      1. SerieD
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yep, no. Only one. My bad.

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

        Corrected.

        1. The_FF_King
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Looks decent. Agree with Marsdona that you should start Nketiah

          1. SerieD
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Cheers!

            Thinking to change Kane to Auba in this WC. And Ft them for next round backwards.

            1. The_FF_King
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              Makes sense to get the better fixtures from then and you have Son coverage this week anyway

              1. SerieD
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                True. Thanks. Good luck all.

    3. SerieD
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      So final Wc is:

      Martinez ( De Gea)
      Alonso, Doherty, Aurier (Saiss, Fernandez)
      KDB, Martial, Son, Pulisic (Rice)
      Auba(C), Jimenez(V), Nketiah

      Plan is to ft Auba to Kane after Norwich game.

  13. the dom 1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Just out of interest who would you stick the C armband on?

    Pope
    VVD, Lascelles, AWB
    Salah, Pulisic, KDB, Bruno
    DCL, Vardy, Jimenez

    Subs. McCarthy, Cantwell, Lunds, Williams

    Cheers

      1. Freddiebell
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yes and then drop Taylor but I'm Worried -4 for them moves isn't worth it..maybe you're right just the son move this week then the AWB move next week?

        1. the dom 1
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

            Cheers buddy

  15. barracuda
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    How did Firmino look? Worth a punt?

    1. iveseenitall
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I personally wouldn't, suspect origi will be getting a lot of game time now.

      1. barracuda
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        He needs a boost in his stats? Pretty low for his standards

      2. n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        think you got this wrong sir...i don't see that much rotstion imo. Think klopp will utilise his 5 subs more

    2. Bennerman
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      A punt into the Mersey, yeah.

      Class player of course but nowhere near any of the four goals the other night. In real football, we can all see he is quality. In this silly game he is classed as pretty rubbish.

      Saying all that, I've been known to have a one-week punt and it's paid off more than once if memory serves.

    3. DARE TO BISCAN
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Not really an FPL player for me.

    2. barracuda
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I think Auba might be rested

      1. The 12th Man
        • 6 Years

        Should I tell her?
        She’s ahead of me.

  17. OLEgend
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Best differential mid for this week? Current front 8 is
    Grealish Bruno Saka KDB Mount
    Rashford Jota Auba.
    Wildcarding next week? Pulisic for Grealish is what iam now at.

  18. tibollom

        Night mare that's my ML rival haha 10 points ahead of him debating sterling and Kelly to Traore and Trent -8 would still put me 2 points ahead of him and block any TAA points

  20. pingissimus
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Anyone else contemplating triple SU defence in 33?

    Times are a little tough!

    1. Bennerman
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I'm personally shedding them asap. Think they're on the bones of their ahhrses a bit, ran out of gas.

      Times must be tough! Holgate at 4.3? Mina risk, though.

      1. pingissimus
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

        They are

        But monitoring Burnley attack closely this week. They are beyond the bare bones.

        I’ve a right mess up top with both Vardy and Tammy and going 5 at the back buys me some time to fix it. Otherwise looking at a’ cumulative -8 anyway

        1. Bennerman
          • 1 Year

          Hmm, can you keep Tammy until Giroud gets dropped and their fixtures start to look great (next week onward I think, even this week, though I think West Ham will kick them all over the pitch)?

          Couple of cheap Watford defence I think, their fixtures are decent.

    First WC draft.
    WC 33, BB 34.

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

    Which pair seems better?
    A) VvD + Mahrez
    B) Gomez + Son

      I'd go De Gea, Aurier, Boly, Son over Lloris, AWB, X, X. Then upgrade Foden/Sarr

    Pope
    TAA, Saiss, Doherty
    Salah, Bruno(v), KDB, Son
    Jimenez(c), DCL, Nketiah
    (Martin; Saka, Lascelles, Holgate)

    Patricio
    TAA - Doherty - Aurier - Lascelles
    Mane - Bruno - Son - KDB
