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.

      Wait for early team news but I would start Traore this week then Jesus is a shoe in for the rest of the season after this week.

    2. LloristheHounds
      • 3 Years

      How long till early team news?

        A few minutes before deadline if lucky.

  2. Joey Barton and Friends

    1 month, 7 days ago

    Henderson, Femenia, Cantwell and Taylor (Burnley) worth a Bench Boost?

    1. Hiddenpaw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Looks like a 10 pointer bench. How many would you be happy with?

      1. Joey Barton and Friends
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Ideally 20. Probably best to wait until I ship Cantwell.

  3. Willmissudimitrypayet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Mane, Calwert-Lewin -> Kane (C), Pulisic, -4 ?

    1. Hiddenpaw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Punchy, are you chasing?

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

        Hehe, yes. Doing alright but 42 points behind leader in mini-league

    2. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Could pay off

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

      Just saw Mane only had 1 shot in the first 2 games, and considering they have City and then he will probably be benched in one of the next 2 maybe Pulisic can match him? He seems hungry for goals.

    4. barracuda
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Kane?

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

        Wait and see 😉 The dude is about to be back.

  4. Hiddenpaw
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Would you captain Rash or Tony?

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

      It’s Rash time now 🙂 His turn imo

    2. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Rash.

    3. iveseenitall
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Spin a coin, both have similar away form. I would go rashford if it was up to me.

    4. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Tony because hes oop, more points for goals and get CS points

    5. Garlana
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Tony as I'm a big point chaser

  5. Champions united
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Play any 2

    TAA
    VVD
    Soy
    Stevens

    1. Garlana
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Trent has to play regardless the fixture.

  6. bigdip
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Does anyone still have Triple Cap chip? If so, which GW are using it and which player are you thinking?

    1. Kannbury
        1 month, 7 days ago

        35 Kane v Arsenal, or maybe any pen taker v us, we still have to play Jimenez, Vardy etc

    2. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Son seems a bit overlooked as captain choice, SHU are struggling after the break and have already played one game more than Spurs. Also Spurs are now enjoying a 9-day rest until the game while Sheffield have to play in the FA Cup vs Arsenal tomorrow.
      Thoughts?

      1. FOO FIGHTER
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Son is a good shout. I have him but still going Salah.

        • acidicleo
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          But isn't he playing a bit deep?

        • el polako
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          One game more played might be actually working in their favour after such long break, but on a whole I do agree that Son is as good captain this week as others - only worry Spurs looked really average against WHU.

        • Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Son is a wing back

      2. Roysgotnoboys
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Barnes > Mount for free? May WC next week, got 6.7 so can’t afford Pulisic

        1. SHOOTER MCGINN
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Yeh. Barnes/Leicester look poor

      3. Jokesy87
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Wildcard team:

        Martinez (Pope)
        TAA Aurier Lascelles (Holgate, Robinson)
        KDB Martial Bruno Saka (Foden)
        Kane Jimi Rashford

        A) G2G
        B) Kane + Foden -> Auba and 5mil mid (suggestions?!)
        C) Kane + Holgate -> Auba and 4.2 def

        1. acidicleo
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          I would go Auba due to this week's fixtures and cap option...

          1. SerieD
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            I went for Auba. Next week ft to Kane.

      4. acidicleo
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Bottomed....

        Really confused about cap!!

        A) Jim
        B) Bruno
        C) Martial
        D) Rash
        E) Son

        No clear favourite for me...A and B has some edge due to pens I guess..

        Plz help to choose..

        1. SerieD
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Jim is dull option. Early game and unlikely jackpot. But it is safe choice. I would go for Son if you are chasing.

      5. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Too much captain dilemma. Might even captain Richarlison fwiw.

        1. acidicleo
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Maybe best week to go for a Doh cap....

        2. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          He couldnt even do anything against Norwich

      6. Adam Johnson
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Guess I’m gonna have to burn the WC as it would cost me 1.7M otherwise...

        • Hryszko
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Auba captain locked in, right decision?

          Also own Jimmy, Salah, Fernandes, KDB..

          Just can’t look past the home game against woeful Norwich, my plan is to keep for this GW & then move him on!

          1. acidicleo
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            I would cap him if I had him..

          2. Free Hat
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Yeah you have to with that fixture imo.

        • internal error
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Sometime talk me out of captaining Doherty over Jimenez please

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

            If you are chasing go for it... If not, go safe...

          2. acidicleo
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            I am tempted too

        • Stoichkov#8

          2. FOO FIGHTER
              1 month, 7 days ago

              You believe Klopp is going to bench Salah and TAA?

                  Terrific new turn of phrase, I'll use that.

          3. KP - FPL
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            I have done a bit of analysis on how many goals Brighton concede at home. Obviously you have to take this with a pinch of salt without fans but for any people considering to captain Rashford it is food for thought.....

            Considering the 14 home games Brighton have played:

            - They have only conceded 2 goals in 4 of the games (28% of the games) - those teams were Southampton, Everton, Leicester and Wolves (none of the top 6!)

            - They have only conceded 1 goal in 8 of the games (57% of the games)

            - They have kept a clean sheet in 3 of the games (21% of the games)

            So the chances of them actually conceding is high but according to these stats it is likely to be the only goal. Interestingly, they close off the big 6 at home better than we may think.

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

              Good call. Maybe don't captain a United player this GW.

            2. acidicleo
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              Good post .
              How are they at conceding pens?

            3. iveseenitall
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              Good post, obviously the impact of no fans and man utds upturn in form can make a difference.

              I look at rashfords stats away to help me make my mind up:
              12 starts
              4 goals
              3 assists
              1 haul

              1. KP - FPL
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                Good point

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

                I think Brighton have overachieved and United the opposite so far. United are, let's be fair, much better than Brighton and could really find them out. I noticed Brighton were really feeling the physical side in second half v Leicester too, Dale Stephens (I know no-one has him, but he's important to them, and actually h's suspended isn't he?) was blowing out of his backside big time.

              Are people expecting Man U to heavily turn over Brighton? I thought Brighton were excellent against Leicester.

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

                Against Arsenal too.

                Of the teams down fighting Brighton showing the most so far.

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

                I thought they were tird, second half they were defending almost the whole time! And zero goal threat (first half a bit better, admittedly).

                United could well drill them, but if not I'd personally budget on two goal minimum.
