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 wouldnt bet surprised if in true fantasy football way in the week where peeps are choosing between Rashford and Martial - Bruno Fernandes came back with a bang.

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Mo is tempting me...see below

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

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

      1. Irish Villan 1985
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

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

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Mo

  8. Kay317
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 9 days ago

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

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

      I'm on Jimi at the min

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

      Going for Martial. Form and team

  9. Miguel Sanchez
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Jimenez EO to be over 100 this GW?

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

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

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        He was 96% against Bournemouth last GW

      2. fr3d
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

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

  10. Red Rock
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 9 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
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I would probably go for Nketiah and bench awb

      1. Red Rock
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

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

    2. Mambino
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 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
        1 month, 9 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 month, 9 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
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 9 days ago

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

          Surely there is a poorer team, by any yardstick?

      • HMFC1874
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

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

    4. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Should I captain Auba or Doherty?

      1. Irish Villan 1985
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Auba

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

          Cheers

      2. Red Rock
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Auba

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

          Thanks

      3. Miguel Sanchez
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Got to be Auba if you have

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

      A bit out of touch this week....

      Bruno > Martial not recommended right?

      1. Houldsworth Hatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I wouldn't no

      2. Mesh
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        No way

      3. Red Rock
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Don't chase points

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

          Thanks guys, as I thought

      4. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

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

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

        he's scored his hat trick now

    6. FPL Egregious
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 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
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

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

    7. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 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
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Think the main boys will be rested tonight, especially Martial

      2. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

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

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

      Captain Rashford.

      Is that your final answer.....

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

        Lets go

    9. Little Red Lacazette
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Would you captain Jimi or Auba?

      1. Houldsworth Hatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Jimi

    10. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Saiss away to Villa or Fernández away to Bournemouth?

      Cheers

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

        Saiss

        1. Houldsworth Hatter

          Cheers

      2. Little Red Lacazette

        Saiss

    11. Kiyoshi
        1 month, 9 days ago

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

      • Henning
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 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
          1 month, 9 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
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Thanx.

        2. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 9 days ago

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

        3. Goonsquad245
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

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

      • Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 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
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Soft muscle?

          1. Pumpy Pro
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Soft tissue then. You know what i mean

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

              Haha, fair shout.

              Just thought you might have seen my muscles or something.

              1. Pumpy Pro

      • QUEN
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Thinking of starting nkeitah over DCL

        Madness or smart

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

          literally just sold DCL and brought Nkeitah in

        2. Goonsquad245
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I wouldn’t myself

      • Brendan95
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Who to captain:

        A: Jiminez
        B: Rashford

        Mini league rival has Rashford but not Jiminez

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

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

          1. Brendan95
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 8 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.

      • DAZZ

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

      • Gunner Boy
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Play Saiis or Lascelles?

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

          Saiss imo

      • Marty McFly
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 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
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

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

        2. Goonsquad245
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Saka easily

        3. La Roja
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Ings

      • Erez Avni
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        start kiko or lascelles?
        have dúbravka

        1. La Roja
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Kiko

      • Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        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

      • Blue Gaffer
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        DCL & Barnes to Martial & Nkietah yes or no?

        1. Blue Gaffer
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          For -4

        2. Siggy Azalea
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Yes

      • dbeck
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 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
          • 6 Years

              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
