The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

We have now reached the sixth round of our FFS Cup, with only 16 Fantasy managers remaining in the competition following the conclusion of Gameweek 33+.

The round-of-16 will play out in Gameweek 34+, the deadline for which is at 17:00 BST today.

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

Former winner Wild Rover is still alive and kicking, having narrowly seen off Cailean_2 at the weekend.

Manisaspor, our highest ranked manager, was indebted to his lofty OR as it saw him through to the last 16 after a 76-all draw with Strawberry Fields.

wilkinson‘s score of 92 was the highest of the round, while niksan squeaked through despite scoring just 50 points.

Only two of our remaining 16 managers are ranked outside the top 100,000.

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+

    Do i sell Salah or Mahrez for KDB(c)

    1. Jealous Viper
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Definitely one of the most useless top posts

      1. The Strokes
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Marhez to KDB is very sideways ... 1 FT lost imo

        1. Jealous Viper
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Well. Was thinking Salah could be a captaincy option next week at home to Burnley but I suppose the threat of rotation is also looming for him

    2. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Salah.

    3. Cok3y5murf

    Hi all.... Is it criminal if I go without any Spurs players for this week since they r taking on Bournemouth! Given their inconsistent form n their long-term fixtures not v attractive either, Im tempted to go without them but im scared it cld kill.

    (A) Save transfer for nx week
    (B) Salah Jimenez for Son & Kane (-4)

    My current squad is
    Pope
    Saiss TAA Kiko
    KDB Salah Fernandes Martial Willian
    Greenwood Jimenez
    Button Ings Soy Taylor

    1. Jealous Viper
      • 3 Years

      Save for me. Don't like how Spurs look going forward. Too labored

    Hello bench one of:
    A. Aurier (BOU)
    B. Jimmy (SHU)
    C. Jesus (NEW)
    D. Alonso (Cry)
    The other two benched will be Saka and Nketiah

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Alonso as he likely won't start.

      1. The Strokes
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        So you think it was tactical not a rest?

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Yes

  6. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years

    Sterling or Mahrez till the end? Only one possible

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Mahrez

    2. The Strokes

      Sterling

    3. Saint Tim
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      sterling

  7. davies

    Jimenez > Rashford worth -4?

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I think Rash is still not match fit. They have him that penalty to try and get him in shape

    2. Jealous Viper
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      No for me. Sheff have been a bit leaky at the back although admittedly Wolves have struggled going forward of late

  8. AJ24
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Play this week:
    A Foden (NEW)
    B Jimenez (sheff)

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Foden for me

    1. AJ24
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Trolls?

    2. Saint Tim
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      they're all going to score big this gameweek?

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        no to both. Guess again.

    3. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      They play Bournemouth in succession you've listed them.

    4. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      They are forwards/strikers

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        We have a winner. They all have the chance to spank Bournemouth soon. I am probably having to own 3 of them

  10. Sotamendi84
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

          Kane is a troll

  13. jdp219
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    1) FH in gw34 - gives double Spurs attack and keeps Salah
    McCarthy
    TAA, Taylor, Saiss
    Salah, KDB, Son, Martial, Bruno
    Kane, Greenwood

    2) Stick with current squad - Aurier/Son enough cover for Kane haul?
    Pope
    TAA, Doherty, Aurier (my FT)
    Salah, KDB, Son, Pulisic, Bruno
    Greenwood, Jimenez

    Holgate to Digne for a hit?

    Actually that would mean Richie and Digne competing for last place in the team most weeks.
    One would be benched.

  16. tim
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Salah(C) backfired big time last week.

    Not sure if I should go w KDB this week to see the same?

    Pope
    Doherty Taa Aurier
    Foden Salah Bruno KDB
    Greenwood Jimi Rash

  17. Hits from the Bong

    All good here? Cheers

    Pope
    TAA Doherty AWB
    Salah KDB(C) Son Bruno Foden
    Ings Greenwood

    Martin Jimenez Fernandez Simpson

    Is it worth getting rid of Mane for Kane in two moves?

  19. Red Rock
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    I'm trying to understand tactics with captaincy, if you know your ML rival who you are trying to beat will captain KDB would you captain say Bruno Fernandes instead?

    Trying to think back to what the Scoutcast deems as sword vs shield.

    Is it better to captain the same person and rely on the rest of your team to outperform theirs? Or do you risk captaining a different player whom a rival doesnt have and you get 'half' points from their captain?

    1. Hiddenpaw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Shield would be captain KDB. Sword captain someone else.

  20. Hiddenpaw
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    If you had Kane would you captain him over KDB? I do regret not captaining Auba when he played Norwich.

  21. FOO FIGHTER
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    I reckon with all their injuries SHU will struggle vs Wolves.

  22. Plagued by indecision
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Could really use some advice to try and recover from a disastrous wildcard and triple captain choice. 2 FT, 1.4m ITB. BB and FH left

    Pope / Martinez
    AWB / Doherty / Saiss / Lascelles / Aurier
    Salah / Mahrez / Martial / Son / Saka
    Nketiah / Jimenez / Rashford

    I obviously have to be reasonably bold as I am 115 pts behind in my mini league but honestly I’m just sick of picking players who score no points!

    I think Salah may need to go despite a good fixture. Liverpool don’t look motivated. Would like Bruno back but would have to lose AWB or Rashford, which seems a waste despite the obvious point-getting discrepancies between them.

    Any advice hugely appreciated

    Hello..rapid fire question.
    Pick 1 to bench please:
    a) mane
    b) foden
    c) jiminez
    d) rashford
    e) greenwood
    f) pulisic

    1. DandyDon
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      foden. despite him being in scout picks! maybe jimi has less of a high ceiling I guess

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Has to be foden for me as well

  24. boroie
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is:

    Rashford & Jimi -> Greenwood & Kane

    worth a -4?

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I did DCL + Rashford to Kane + Gwood for a hit, but I already regret it

  25. boroie
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Got 2 FTs... what would you do...

    A - Rashford & Jimi -> Greenwood & Kane
    B - Mahrez & Jimi -> Foden & Kane
    C - Saka -> Foden & save FT

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A looks good for free. Depends if you have other transfers planned down the line etc.

  26. stevehaigh84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is it worth playing my triple captain chip on KDB tonight? I'm anticipating a city bonce back and Newcastle's defense is far from solid at the moment.

  27. Swanny18
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Play Foden or Jimenez?
