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.
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.
