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 5 – Gameweek 33+
Round 6 – Gameweek 34+
Quarter-Final – Gameweek 35+

WHEN ARE THE FIXTURES RELEASED?

        Everyone can use an extra 2m....

  2. fc_skrald

    1 month, 8 days ago

    So I have Auba as captain. Who should have the vice captain responsibility?

    a. Fernandes, away against Brighton
    b. Pulisic, away against West Ham

    1. gaurava1216
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Auba is gonna play so really doesn't matter

    2. Emp
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Pulisic for me

  3. gaurava1216
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Final decisions on my WC..... please help?

    A) Maguire or AWB for the last spot on WC?

    B) Captain Martial or Jimi ?

    C) Bench 1: Aurier/United Defender/ Nketia ?

    1. RamaJama
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      AWB, Martial, Aurier

  4. RamaJama
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Do you think Martial will continue to deliver?

    1. Mambino
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      yes

    2. Mambino
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I think he can get a bit a crowd shy and he's loving the freedom

    3. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      With Pogba Matic Bruno midfield. Absolutely

    4. EgyptianKing
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Hope so!

      Obviously he won’t hat trick every week but I think he will be involved, on average, on most United attacking returns.

    5. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      To be seen but I cannot see why not unless he is injured. There is Ighalo to cover him last minutes of the game to reduce risks.

  5. EgyptianKing
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Hi mates,

    Should I start Jota or Nketiah?

    Cheers

    1. Mambino
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Nketiah

  6. Bullet Eder
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Who is the best captain for this week?

    A. Auba (NOR)
    B. Jiminez (avl)
    C. Rashford (bri)

    1. kime67
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      auba

    2. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A

  7. kysersosa
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Play

    A) DCL (Leicester)
    B)Nketiah (Norwich)

    Have Richarlison in my team so currently on B

    1. EgyptianKing
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Same doubt for me with Nketiah vs Jota.

      I am currently on Nketiah

      1. kysersosa
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Yeah that’s a tough one. I’d go Nketiah.

  8. kime67
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    ok done thinking
    free hit:
    martinez
    saiss doherty azpi
    kdb bruno son martial
    rash jimi auba (c)
    gtg?

  9. Kaiser123
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Wolves looked a bit leggy the other day. Feel Man U are more energized, and dilemma is who to pick for captain Martial or Rash. For me both are good for goals and assist, but CS potential for Martial swings it.

    1. kime67
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      i think its rashford this time with haul

  10. The Red Devil
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Pope button
    TAA Doherty Lascelles Femenia Schletto
    Mahrez mane son Fernandes Guendouzi
    Aubameyang DCL Jimenez

    1 FT 0 ITB
    Save FT & get the United duo next GW?or get in Martial now?

    1. kime67
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      get him now...

      1. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Sell whom?

  11. CONNERS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 8 days ago

    I cap'd TAA by mistake last GW (genuinely).

    Wondering if I should 'accidentally' cap a def this week... Doherty? Alonso?

    1. Emp
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Alonso too risky starter for me. Doherty the fact that they have switched back to 3 up front would put me off

    2. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Thanks, will play it safe this week I think.

  12. Oldie99
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Correct team and bench?

    Patricio (Button)
    Trent Lascelles Cahill
    Poggy Bruno Son Kev
    Jimi(Vc) Auba(C) DCL

    B: ASM Saiss Lord

    Will Trent not be pissing it up right now? Play Saiss instead?

    1. Brendan95
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Saiss instead of Cahill for me

      1. Oldie99
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Really home to Burnley not a good spot to spread the risk? What about Trent?

        1. Brendan95
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I see the logic. Hard to know with Trent - I think it's still a wait and see for what Klopp does with rotation now.

  13. Brendan95
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    GTG?

    Martinez
    Doherty Aurier AWB
    Mane KDB Bruno Son

    1. Pukki Party

      Gtg, i have the C and VC the other way around.

      1. Brendan95
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I did but changed because of the poll on here. Tempted to switch back though and stick with gut instinct.

  14. Oggle22
    • 3 Years

    Stuck with
    Henderson
    Lundstarm Egan Saiss
    Salah KDB Martial Bruno Sterling
    Rashford(c) Jotta

    Martin Connolly Simpson Kelly

    Already took -4 10 points a head of ml rival sterling and Kelly to Traore and Trent? Would still put me 2 a head of him worth it?

    Final thoughts on WC?

    Pope
    TAA Doherty PVA
    KDB Son Martial Bruno Pulisic
    Rashford Jimenez
    (Martin Nketiah Fernandez Robinson)

    1. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I like it, very good team. One thing though, whilst PVA looks a great shout for this week, beyond that Palace have a tough set of fixtures. Do you plan to sell soon?

      1. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thanks. I'm planning to keep as my strategy is to play with 3 wingbacks who have genuine potential at both ends of the pitch. But I can easily downgrade to Aurier if it doesn't pay off.

        1. Blue&White85
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Good luck!

    Free Hitting this week!

    Willian or pusilic??

    Cheers!

      Pulisic

  23. FOO FIGHTER
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Why is everyone so worried about rotation at LFC when most teams are being rotated?

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Because the price of their players means the players you can afford to step in are not as good. A 12m rotation risk is harder to swallow than an 8.5m one.

    2. RECKLESS
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Liv players become very overpriced if they are rotation risk too. They are 3-4mn more than other rotation risk assets. Liv next game is after long time so no rotation risk but the favourable AVL match will see it as its in 3 days

      1. Bennerman
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        What, they're all 3-4m than all other players? Eh?

        1. Bennerman
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 8 days ago

          You just mean Salah/Mane are more expensive than whoever you personally have in mind?

          Glad you're not doing my accounts with that broad brush. Unless it was in my favour, I suppose.

      2. FOO FIGHTER
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Does the same not apply to City assets?

        1. RECKLESS
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Still 2mn gap between de bruyne and salah

  24. RECKLESS
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Guess I am holding Vardy for Everton and worst part is I will then be holding even vs CPL as Lei won 2-0 last time with Vardy invloved...Oh well

    Who to captain
    1) Jiminez v AVL scored in last h2h match
    2) Son vs shu scored in last h2h as well
    On 1 but Spurs will be fresher of the two as Sheffield have FA cup macth in middle as well.
    Clean sheet odds are better for Sheff

    1. manu4life99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I would go Son over Jimi if I had him this week due to factors mentioned

  25. Catastrophe
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Start Grealish or Nketiah? Have Auba (c)

    Start Basham, Lundstram or Egan?

      Nketiah no brainer
