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.

    WC team:

    Martinez/Hendo
    TAA, Aurier, Saiss, AWB, holgate
    KDB, Bruno, Salah, Pulisic, Mane
    DCL, Jimenez, Nketiah

    Any gaps?
    Not sure on DCL and maybe downgrading Mane

  2. Ruinenlust

    Will Jimenez start? Didn’t he just play 2 days ago?

    1. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Yes. Wolves have a small squad and he’s their most important player so won’t be rested whilst chasing a Champions League spot.

      1. Emp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        actually 40 pts is close to an average gw score

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Over 1 GW, yes. Over 7 game weeks it’s less than 6 points per week.

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      From that lot.
      Rashford or Jimenez for safety.
      Son,Doherty if you feel punts.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Mini league standing are very good so will be going safe.

  12. MGD
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Rashford and Jimmy have extremely similar statistical output, with Rash is favoured in xGA per minute and Jimenez with touches in the box and better heatmap.

    The teams have similar goals to play for, at the same standing in the table.

    Rashford won’t play up top with Martials latest performance

    What it comes down to will be the opposition with Villas defense stats way worse that Brighton’s and with Brighton’s form looking better.

    (C) Jimenez for me

    1. manu4life99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Hopefully early team news leaked makes the decision easier

      1. MGD
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Yup. When and where will you be looking for that?

        Rockstar? If Jimmy plays, will you C him?

        1. manu4life99
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Yep Rockstar (if he leaks it). If Jimi starts I'll (C), if he is benched I'll likely bench him too and start Nketiah

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Nice post. Also my thinking. What about Doherty as Captain?

      1. MGD
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        If you are chasing yeah, but too much risk for me 🙂

        Where are you in ML’ s?

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Top

    3. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Rashford has hardly played up top all season though.

    4. Bennerman
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      What maths are you using? Jimenez has played way, way more minutes and has 15 goals to Rashford's 14, I believe, just one more.

      And I don't think he assists much, though not checked the stats on this one.

      1. MGD
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        I meant xG and minutes per xGI Goal involvement. Rashford beats jimenez on both

        1. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Doesn't that undermine your main argument then?

          1. MGD
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Sure, a little bit. But I state that as in favor of Rashford and Jimenez box touches and overall heatmap in favor of Jimenez.

            And when I ended up deciding based on the opponents rather than the players themselves 🙂

            1. Bennerman
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              True, and you did say as much, yep.

      2. RECKLESS
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        4 of those were penalties which he has lost now

        1. MGD
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Good point

  13. caddy118

    Am I really going to bench DCL to start Nketiah ?
    Blinded by Norwich.... 🙂

    1. Bennerman
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      But didn't DCL just blank against Norwich?

        He did, Arsenal athome though

        1. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          My point is that if you are blinded by Norwich then you must also have been last week, and you saw how that went.

          Once bitten twice shy?

            If he’s benching Niketiah next week though and upgrading elsewhere with the 2m then it could work.

              I own both, just debating which one to start.

                • 7 Years
                2 months, 23 days ago

                Leicester look good at the back.
                I think I’d play Niketiah

            See your point, will start Arsenal man anyway - lets have some fun.

            1. Bennerman
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Yeah, absolutely, why not. I think he's a good player anyway.

    2. BENOIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Thats my possible transfer

    WC final 2 picks:

    A) Maguire Pulisic
    B) Martial Lasc

    Martinez Patricio
    TAA Aurier Doc XXX Holgate
    Salah KDB Bruno XXX Foden
    Rash Jimi Nketiah

    Tripe utd attack seems overkill but rival has Bruno/Rash so it would only be Martial extra as differential (vs Rich)

    1. RECKLESS
      • 7 Years

      A by miles as Maguire had 2 header chances. He is one of them getting right away from 9 pts as will get 3 baps too. He is corner target as well. Plus you need better bench with Nketiah not nailed
      Plz advice me on this
