FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

The fourth round of our FFS Cup took place in Gameweek 32+, with 64 Fantasy managers whittled down to 32 after its conclusion.

The fifth round is scheduled to play out in Gameweek 33+, the deadline for which is at 11.30am BST on Saturday.

ALL RESULTS FROM THE FOURTH ROUND CAN BE VIEWED HERE
THE FULL DRAW FOR THE FIFTH ROUND IS AVAILABLE TO VIEW HERE

Former winner Wild Rover saw off Hafizi39 in the round of 64 and will now take on Cailean_2 this weekend.

billybly was our highest-ranked FPL boss left in the competition but exited in the fourth round and dropped out of the top 1k in the process.

Manisaspor, who sits at 1,591st in the world, now takes on that mantle, with Dial Square just 35 places behind.

Johnnex023 was the only one FPL manager in round four who posted a triple-figure score in Gameweek 32+, racking up exactly 100 points.

Every single one of our remaining 32 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 agree, Mahrez is a good pic but Son could shine on Monday evening.

      On a WC. Gayle worth a punt over Ings just for one week? Or is planning a trade the week after a WC asking for trouble?

      1. Fishy
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        You rather have asm than gayle even for a gw

        1. TheTinman
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          ASM due a rest.

          1. Fishy
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            He was taken off last gw surely he will start

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          He could be gold but no space in my midfield.

      2. TheTinman
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Nah I think he doesn’t start

      3. Smurf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        It’s a waste when there’s such a small ceiling. Auba vs Norwich for example was a good pic even as a planned transfer out but Dwight Gayle will have such a super low chance of making it worth the extra transfer.

        1. Rasping Drive (BSC Small Bo…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          You’re probably right, Smurf. My eyes were turned a little by the paragraph in the Scout Picks article:

          “Dwight Gayle (£5.0m) is in fine form ahead of Gameweek 33+, registering the second-highest number of shots in the box and joint-most big chances among all Premier League players across their last four matches.”

      Have i got this right? Not sure who to bench?
      Lamptey taa aurier Doherty 
      Martial pulisic mane asm mahrez
      Rashford 
      Jota gordon Robinson

      1. Rasping Drive (BSC Small Bo…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Just about, I reckon. Although I might play Jota over Aurier

        1. Fishy
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Cooool

    5. Gunner Boy
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Good Morning All,
      On FH,

      X Martin
      TAA Lamptey Simpson X X
      Mahrez Salah (c) Bruno Martial Pulisic
      Rashford Jimenez Connolly

      Which is better?

      A- Ederson + Gomez + Taylor
      B- Pope + VVD + Diop
      C- Something else?

      1. si
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Giroud instead of Jiminez. Be bold.

      2. Young Lingard
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Pope mendy Wan-Bissaka
        Could that work ?

        I apologise prior if you choose mendy and he doesn’t play or does something defensively atrocious

    6. olidooley
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      4.8M Norwich midfielder, Kenny McLean has more points than Bruno Fernandes over the season so far

      1. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        What about minutes?

      2. TheTinman
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Fernandes wasn’t in the premier league till Jan.

      3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        League performance since Bruno joined:

        - 8 games played (including away to Chelsea, Everton, Spurs, and home to Man City)
        - 8 Points per game (65 points)
        - 8 attacking Returns (5G, 3A)
        - Unbeaten
        - 3 team goals conceded
        - 15 team goals scored
        - 5 cleansheets
        - A partridge in a pear tree

        Interestingly, Man Utd's underlying stats haven't dramatically improved, some have actually deteriorated slightly (XG, Chances Created, Goal attempts, Big chances etc are all ever so slightly worse in the GW24 - GW32 post-Bruno world vs. the GW1-GW23 pre-Bruno world)

        But Bruno appears to have just provided the leadership & focal point to start channeling those underlying stats into better "overlying" stasts - i.e. the stats that really matter

    7. Roysgotnoboys
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      WC team GTG? Seems odd playing this structure but think it affords me the best team

      Pope
      TAA, VVD, Taylor
      KBD, Mahrez, Salah, Bruno, Martial
      Jiminez, Greenwood

      (Martinez, Ings, Saiss,

      1. George Agdgdgwngo
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Like it

      2. Roysgotnoboys
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        (Martinez, Ings, Saiss, Robinson)

        0.0ITB

        Salah C, Bruno VC

      3. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        I think you'll regret not starting Ings. 18 goals so far, nailed on talisman for his team, against a team which has actually conceded the joint highest number of big chances over the last 4 gameweeks.

        1. Roysgotnoboys
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Thanks. Who do you bench? Greenwood?

      Hi guys, need some advice here

      Which one would you choose as a FT?

      A) Nketiah to Greenwood
      B) Foster to Pope
      C) Son to Mahrez
      D) Son to Martial
      E) Something else?

      Foster/Button
      VVD/Lascelles/Fernandez/Saiss/Simpson

      Nketiah/Rashford/Jimenez

      TC now active - I’ll take an assist and cs 🙂

      Ederson
      Maguire Boly Lascelles
      M(o) KdB Bruno Son Mahrez
      Jim Greenwood

      Hendo Tammy Egan Lord

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years

        Good luck

    10. Smurf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I’m on FH. Any glaring issues*?

      Ryan
      TAA / VVD / Alonso
      Salah (c) / Sterling / Bruno / Mahrez / Pulisic
      Rashford / Greenwood

      3.9 / Chilwell / Connolly / Lamptey

      Chilwell on the bench as a nice option should Alonso be dropped or Sterling be rested.

      * I know KDB is class but that poor lad needs his legs resting at some point.

      1. Fishy
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Would drop chillwell tbh and either upgrade connolly or have extra funds available for next gw

        1. Smurf
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          It’s a free hit.

      2. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Looks good but hope Pep plays KDB I mean the lad just loves football

      3. Rasping Drive (BSC Small Bo…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Looks very nice, apart from a niggling doubt about Alonso who didn’t look great in the last game, Not sure if he’ll be dropped. Good luck!

      4. LC1
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Would prefer Martial in there if its free hit.

      5. Young Lingard
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Wan bissaka or Mendy over chillwell

    11. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      If in early team news Connolly was benched who would you play here??

      1. Connolly (hope he gets a cameo goal)
      2. Lascelles (hope the ‘cut’ doesn’t keep him out)
      3. Cantwell (hope Norwich fight)

      Thanks.

      1. Young Lingard
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Cantwell

        I can’t see Newcastle risking lascelles
        But GL

    12. olidooley
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Gtg and bench order?

      Pope
      TAA Doherty AWB
      Salah KDB Bruno Mahrez Sarr
      Rashford Jiménez

      Button Connolly Robinson Lascelles

      1. Redalert

        Solid. Gtg

      2. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        If a confirmed starter in any team leaks then Conn over Sarr

      3. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Maybe Lascelles, I’m torn myself

      1. Young Lingard
        • 1 Year

        Dendocker/saka to Mahrez, Sterling
        Auba to anyone under 6.8 right ?
        (Greenwood/ nketiah and okay 3-4-3)
        I’d also play Pope but that’s not so big a deal

    17. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Having gone through a "never ending' gameweek when transfer prices are inconsistent, uncertainties relating to lineups and misinformation offered by managers; it has become quite taxing making transfer decisions and formations.
      Knowing the risk of 20% of players not starting games and best value to be found in midfield. Are you guys:
      Going for 5 in midfield?
      Finding yourself benching 2 forwards?
      Going for a more general spread of wealth rather than concentrating on big hitters?

      I have found myself having a good 1st sub with uncertainty playing Greenwood/Nkethia on the field or on the bench.

      What is everyone doing with Bruno with injury doubts?

      1. Dannyb
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        352 for me, strikers not cutting it but my defence is thread bare.

        1. FALSE PROFIT
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          4 5 1 for me but it creates a terrible imbalance if forwards start to fire.

    18. Woy_is_back
      • 2 Years

      Start Aurier or DCL?

        I have Laporte and I think it was a mistake.
        Very brave no KDB but he might not start this weekend.

          Had kdb in pre fh team.

          He is due a rest, and that is why I am not going with him on FH

        2. The Overthinker - I blame R…
          • 3 Years

            Ceiling low and I benched him for TAA on the Pool Citeh game. He takes up a mid place too.

      Im captaining Mahrez. Who´s with me?

        I am tempted. But Martial/Bruno/Mane feels like a better option

        Fascinated to see how this week pans out. Southampton have great defensive stats as did Burnley of course.

        Villa do as well but Palace hadn’t conceded in 400 minutes.

        Liverpool missed 2 great chances in the first 20 minutes. Going Mo

      Captain Salah or Bruno if you own both?

      1. Fishy
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Bruno

      2. jaywills

        1 month, 11 days ago

        I keep changing on this.
        Salah higher ceiling but is a risk of only playing 20-30 mins
        villa stronger defence since restart.
        Bmouth in terrible run, m.utd more to play for and in form team.
        Im swinging to bruno

          I was fully set on Mo but this makes me second guess

    25. Bububuzz
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Wan-Bissaka or Maguire?

      If I captain Salah, vice-captain Willian or Ings?

      Thanks
