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.

  1. Gameweek 34+ Captaincy
    Gregor
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Kevin De Bruyne, Bruno Fernandes and Harry Kane look like the main captaincy contenders this gameweek, but which horse are you backing?

    KDB: Rested, home game, opposition have injury problems and not much to play for, penalties.

    Bruno: 30 points in his last two games, seemingly undroppable, probably on the next penalty, team is highly motivated and in excellent form.

    Kane: Penalties, very rarely doesn’t get the full 90 minutes, Bournemouth look absolutely woeful. Will be away though.

    Probably De Bruyne for me, though United are still benefiting from a less tighter schedule than City and look to be on a roll whilst Kane could be a huge differential for those willing to take the plunge.

    Anyone doing anything different?

    Who will be your captain this gameweek and why?

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I'm going with Sterling!

      1. Ruinenlust
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Will he stert?

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Looks like it

          1. Ruinenlust
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            He’s started 4 games in 10 days. Surely he’ll be rested now.

            1. timmmuh
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Less than 60 min in last 2: Jesus player 90 on Sunday

      2. Gregor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Nice, not worried about your name though?!

        1. La Roja
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          lol

      3. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Love it. Good luck!

    2. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Rank 7.7k and going with KDB. Also own Sterling and Foden which I feel is enough of a differential for me.

    3. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Have all 3 and don't trust Kane. Head says KDB but heart says Bruno.

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

      KdB for me. Already been burned by Villa's defence when I captained Jimi a few weeks back. Logic suggests KdB should start, fingers crossed! Fernandes viced.

    5. Ady87
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      KDB as it’s a nicer fixture and rested. Easy decision this week. Spurs haven’t been great.

    6. Jafooli
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Kiko: Utterly useless so won’t expect anything at all and therefore won’t be a monumental let down like all the big hitters I manage to captain on their ‘off’ day. It’s my new coping strategy.

      1. Greek Freak
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        I hadn't thought of this before, that's a great plan. I'm probably playing TC this week (on KDB) but I might switch it to Kiko now.

    7. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Thanks Gregor.

      Kane: AWAY game surely?

      1. Gregor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Dammit! You are quite right, Spurs away record not looking great this season either.

        1. Make Arrows Green Again
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Sorry! It would make a little difference to me, but I can't look past KdB this week. I may go Mahrez if I'm feeling brave but the last three times I swtiched from my first choice captain it ended up going badly (most recently a Fernandes to Salah move with 5 mins to go in the GW just gone 🙁 )

          1. Gregor
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Ouch! Yeah, my late changes haven’t done me any good lately either, good luck fella!

            1. Make Arrows Green Again
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              You too!

    8. Amey
      • 1 Year

      KISS (keep it simple stupid)
      KDB 🙂

    9. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      KDB, for the third time this season.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Well I'm top of my ML with my rivals closing in after making a disastrous minority captain choice (Mahrez) last GW, so I'm playing it conservative and choosing the most popular pick, Kev.

    10. The Hindu Monkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Kane is away

      1. Gregor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Yep, soz about that, I’ll see if I can get it edited!

    11. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Kdb, only doubt is TC now or in 36 against Bournemouth

    12. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Kane is away
      Also Kane blanked at home to Bournemouth while son had 2 assists

      1. Gregor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Cheers, got that edited now. Yeah, Kane has let me down a few times when he’s had easy looking fixtures.

        1. The Red Devil
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Hey, what do you think about TC? Kdb now or 36+?
          PS- Kane is a trap, son much better option comparatively

        2. The Red Devil
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Kdb has Bournemouth in 36+

          1. Gregor
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            I think I’d be tempted to wait for 36+ or 38+, might even have team news if you can wait till the last day.

            1. The Red Devil
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Thanks thinking FH 38 & TC 36
              fingers crossed

      2. Pieterke30
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Spurs are POOR anyway

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          They are POO everywhere 😀

    13. PompeyUpNorth!
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Sterling for me

    14. FPL_Sponge
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Cheers for this Gregor!

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

    Bring in Foden and start ahead of Jimi in a 3-5-2?!

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      If it's for free then yes

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

        Yes for free. Spare funds from doing DCL>Greenwood... Quite like the idea of 2.4m ITB and 2 FT's next week though just incase...

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Yeh, I'm dropping Jimi to the bench.

  3. Ady87
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Would you take anyone out for a hit for Foden or Sterling? Feel like 1 city player could kill me this week.

    Martinez
    TAS Aurier Saiss
    Salah KDB Bruno Pulisic Son
    Greenwood Jimi

    Subs: Ings Lascelles Williams

    1. Firminoooo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I have done Salah to Sterling for free. Would do it for -3.7 I think. 🙂

  4. Tmel
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Start one from each:

    a) Saiss
    b) Holgate

    1) Jimenez
    2) Holgate

    1. The Littlest Robbo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Start both Holgate

  5. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Any news on Holgate??

  6. yer old da
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Decided it's in for a penny in for a pound at this stage of the season if I'm serious about top 1k. Climbed from 17k to 7k these past 3 weeks and now need some top 10k differentials to push on again. So despite possible injuries to Holgate and Lascelles, I'll gamble that Femenia plays the next 2 against NOR and NEW and instead use my FT on Jimenez > Kane.

    Who likes the new team for this week?

    Pope
    TAA, Doherty, Femenia
    Salah, KDB(c), Bruno(vc), Pulisic
    Kane, Rashford, Greenwood
    Subs: Martin, Holgate, Lascelles, Davis

    Next week it's Kane > Vardy to keep chasing that sweet Bournemouth defence.

    1. wilson007
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      looks good to me!

    2. JabariParkersEyelid
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Looks great.

    3. AD2110
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Captain (?):

      A) KDB
      B) Son

      No one in my ML has Son so seems like the obvious pick if chasing, but i'm just not that confident on him delivering....

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

        A

      2. Only a Hazard of time
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        KDB and hope the rest of your team is enough to make ground. If KDB hauled your season would be over.

        1. AD2110
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          That’s what happened last week when I decided to captain Salah over Bruno haha

      3. ChipsnGravy
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        A

    4. StellaMan
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Holgate and Nketiah to Ings and Mendy?

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

        Like it

      2. timmmuh
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Yes

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

      Salah (bha) or Mahrez (NEW) for this GW?

      1. ChipsnGravy
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Mahrez...... both may be rotated but I think Mahrez has more chance of playing 90

        1. Ruinenlust
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Mahrez always gets subbed around 60 mins

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            59 mins. I should know, I captained him 🙁

    6. unitednations
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Best moves here with 1ft and 0.2m

      DDG
      Taa • Doherty • Holgate -- Kiko Lamptey
      KDB • Salah • Bruno • Pulisic --- Guendouzi
      DCL • Rashford • Jimenez

      A: Salah > Mahrez + 4m to get martial in gw35

      B: Save FT and do a mini WC next gw to bring in both martial and Greenwood

      C: Salah + Jimmy >> Mahrez + Kane (-4)

    7. Only a Hazard of time
      • 7 Years

      Someone talk me out of this FH team?

      Martinez
      Azpi - Aurier - TAA
      Mahrez - KdB - Foden - Martial - Bruno
      Kane - Greenwood

      Original team below:

      Pope
      AWB - Doherty - TAA - Kiko
      KdB - Bruno - Martial - Salah
      Jimi - DCL

      1. King Barry
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Very similar to my FH team excerpt I have Kepa, Doherty and Sterling instead of your Martinez, Azpi & Mahrez

    8. Mr Flibble
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Is it madness to take a -4 to do Rashford+Saka -> Greenwood and Foden so that I can have 3 City attackers (Mahrez, KDB and Phil) against Newcastle

        Save for City vs Bournemouth in my opinion

    11. Jafooli
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Start Pope (whu) or Marinez (LEI)? Have managed to pick the wrong one for the past three GWs....

    12. Ruinenlust
      • 2 Years

    13. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      What formations are folk going with?

      With limited attacking picks I am leaning towards going 451 with a Liverpool DEF double up

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

        451

    14. Squeazy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Bench one:

      A) Sarr (NOR)
      B) Greenwood (avl)
      C) Jimenez (shu)

      1. Hits from the Bong
        • 1 Year

        A

      2. Only a Hazard of time
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Sarr, purely because of form.

      3. DannyDrinkVodka
          1 month, 4 days ago

          So difficult, but it would have to be C for me........Sarr is capable of an explosive performance

          1. Squeazy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            Ok, this has convinced me. Thank you!

          Anyone else think next season the deadline should be put back 2 hours?

            • 7 Years

            Yea, put the deadline to 5PM on Saturdays.

            Right after the full time whistle sounds decent.

              Just because on game weeks like this, if there’s early team news, people in Asia are fast asleep and shouldn’t have to get up to check early team news. That’s all

                You're not making any sense sorry.

                If you put the deadline back 2 hours then the deadline is at half time of the first match or all the matches on any given Saturday.

                I think you're question needs rewording.

                The deadline is an hour before the first match kicks

                  He means putting the deadline to 2 hours before KO of the first match, to avoid people taking advantage of team leaks while some international players will be asleep

            i took a -4 to do jimenez+rashford to kane and greenwood, already have a bad feeling about it, the moral of the story is forget about Kane, he'll disappoint as always
