FFS Cup

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+
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.

      Definitely one of the most useless top posts

      1. The Strokes

        28 days, 20 hours ago

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

        1. Jealous Viper
          • 2 Years
          28 days, 20 hours 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

        Salah.

      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

        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
          28 days, 20 hours ago

          Alonso as he likely won't start.

        Jimenez > Rashford worth -4?

        1. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
          • 11 Years
          28 days, 20 hours ago

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

        2. Jealous Viper
          • 2 Years
          28 days, 20 hours ago

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

      4. AJ24
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

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

        1. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
          • 11 Years

          Foden for me

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

            C) Salah -> Sterling
            D) Traore -> Foden (bench DCL or Jimenez)
            E) Lundstram to Otamendi (bench Boly)

              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.

              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

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

            9. Red Rock
              • 3 Years
              28 days, 19 hours 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

                • 2 Years
                28 days, 19 hours ago

                Shield would be captain KDB. Sword captain someone else.

            10. Hiddenpaw
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              28 days, 19 hours ago

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

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

                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

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

                Is:

                Rashford & Jimi -> Greenwood & Kane

                worth a -4?

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

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

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

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

                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.

                Play Foden or Jimenez?
