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.

      I switched to Pulisic

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Mo is tempting me...see below

    2. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      I’m on Jimi but as a Villa fan it feels wrong

      1. Irish Villan 1985
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Same, I may move him off Captain to Rashford or Salah as Villa have looked better defensively of late!!

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Mo

  8. Kay317
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Who to cap:
    A) Salah
    B) martial
    C) rashford
    D) son
    E) Jiminez

    1. Mesh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      I'm on Jimi at the min

    2. ididnt
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Going for Martial. Form and team

  9. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Jimenez EO to be over 100 this GW?

    1. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 12 days ago

      I would guess around 70-85 but you might be right

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        He was 96% against Bournemouth last GW

      2. fr3d
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        It was 96% last GW. Without a doubt over 100 this time

  10. Red Rock
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    I'm considering starting Nketiah but it will leave me with either Aurier or Wan Bisaka on the bench.

    Should I play it safe and start both defenders?

    Think I'm being blinded by Nketiah Vs Norwich

    1. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 12 days ago

      I would probably go for Nketiah and bench awb

      1. Red Rock
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        That's what I'm currently on, just feels odd benching a good defender

    2. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      well I just made a last minute decision to bring him in for DCL so I'd have to say play him

      1. Red Rock
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        I had DCL last week on free hit so id be keen to get him out of my team

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 12 days ago

      I don't trust Arsenal and they are the poorest team at the moment. Nketiah 1st on bench. No other Arsenal assets.

      1. Bennerman
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Poorest team, who just won a game 2-0?

        Surely there is a poorer team, by any yardstick?

    4. For Fuchs Sake
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      I wouldn't bench AWB, possible CS and he got an assist against SHU

  11. Jullepuu
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Should I captain Auba or Doherty?

    1. Irish Villan 1985
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Auba

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Cheers

    2. Red Rock
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Auba

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Got to be Auba if you have

  12. Jellyfish
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    A bit out of touch this week....

    Bruno > Martial not recommended right?

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      I wouldn't no

    2. Mesh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      No way

    3. Red Rock
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Don't chase points

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks guys, as I thought

    4. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      When Martial blanks & Rashford & Bruno go large many chasers will feel the same.

    5. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      he's scored his hat trick now

  13. FPL Egregious
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    G2G:
    Dubravka (3.9)
    Taa, Doherty, Aurier (kabasele, 4m)
    Kdb, Bruno, Richa, Sarr (st max)
    Rash, Jim, Vardy

    Thinking to sell Richa and Vardy for Salah and Nketiah (i can go up to 6.2 for striker). Any other ideas?
    Thank you!

    1. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      May as well go with Nketiah and get a couple of playing subs with the change.

  14. CONNERS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Think I will cap Jimmy. FA cup game is putting me off a United player in case of fatigue/injury, etc.

    1. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Think the main boys will be rested tonight, especially Martial

    2. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      You could be right, although the big players often feature in the later stages of the cup competitions.

  15. Old Gregg
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Captain Rashford.

    Is that your final answer.....

    1. dshv
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Lets go

  16. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Would you captain Jimi or Auba?

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Jimi

  17. Houldsworth Hatter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Saiss away to Villa or Fernández away to Bournemouth?

    Cheers

    1. Mesh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Saiss

      1. Houldsworth Hatter

        Cheers

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Saiss

  18. Kiyoshi
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Jota and Salah => Martial and Rashford, good idea?

  19. Henning
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Around 90 p ahead in ml.
    Most of my rivals will not even have or give Auba the armband. Think they gonna go for Rashford or Jimenz.

    Should i cap

    1. Aubameyang
    2. Jimenez
    3. Rashford

    1. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      You have won. Well done.

      A . If you have Auba and don't captain him just sell him for Kane ( C)

      1. Henning
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Thanx.

    2. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      2 or 3. No need to take the risk in your position.

    3. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Depends what your goals are. Think Auba is the best captain for this week from an expected points perspective

  20. Pumpy Pro
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Ritchie --,》 Aurier - 4 ?

    Soft muscle injuries ususlly take
    Between 1 and 2 weeks to heal so has to be a doubt for both games ?

    1. Bennerman
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Soft muscle?

      1. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Soft tissue then. You know what i mean

        1. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Haha, fair shout.

          Just thought you might have seen my muscles or something.

          1. Pumpy Pro
            • 11 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            🙂

  21. QUEN
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Thinking of starting nkeitah over DCL

    Madness or smart

    1. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      literally just sold DCL and brought Nkeitah in

    2. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      I wouldn’t myself

  22. Werner Bros
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Who to captain:

    A: Jiminez
    B: Rashford

    Mini league rival has Rashford but not Jiminez

    1. Mesh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Depends if you're chasing your mini league rival or above him.
      I'm on Jimi

      1. Werner Bros
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        I'm 30 points above him. I was originally on Rash but changed to Jimi because of the poll here and the lack of FA Cup fixture congestion.

  23. DAZZ

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Thinking same, apart from they played three up top last time out?

  24. Mr Ozil
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Play Saiis or Lascelles?

    1. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Saiss imo

  25. Marty McFly
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Bench 1:

    A Ings (wat)
    B Jota (avl)
    C Sako (NOR)

    In my opinion, Ings is a rotation risk, so I’m tempted to bench him. Too bold?

    1. popcoin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Tough one. Tbh Villa are defending pretty ok and Jota isn’t much threat

    2. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Saka easily

    3. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Ings

  26. Erez Avni
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    start kiko or lascelles?
    have dúbravka

    1. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Kiko

  27. Jellyfish

    Any work needed with this log for gw32?

    DDG
    TAA Holgate Doherty
    Mane KDB Bruno Son
    Vardy DCL Jimi*

    1 FT but planning on a 2 FT strategy to ship Vardy next week

  28. Blue Gaffer
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    DCL & Barnes to Martial & Nkietah yes or no?

    1. Blue Gaffer
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      For -4

    2. Siggy Azalea
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Yes

  29. dbeck
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    No Stephens or Hojbjerg, McCarthy looking suspect again. Is Sarr vs the high soton press a decent option this week?
    He should cause problems running behind, similar as he did vs pool

    1. Concrete
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Sounds like it with what you’ve said

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Toying with captaining him, I’m chasing and Jim ceiling isn’t too high

        1. Concrete
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Not sure about capt but I don’t play aggressively like that

          It’s one of those that could work and something to do when chasing

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Have you seen how quick he is, oh & he stopped Pool in there tracks.

  30. Concrete
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago
