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.

    Any news on Holgate?

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Not defo out but still a doubt.

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

    Who starts?
    A) Pope (whu)
    B) Henderson (WOL)

    1st bench:
    1) C. Taylor (whu)
    2) Egan (WOL)

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

      A 2

    2. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Ha, A2

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

    Salah + Connolly -> Kane + Foden (-4)

    Would leave me with a Midfield of KDB Foden Mahrez Fernandes

    Too many eggs in one basket maybe ?

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

      maybe, but you've chosen a great basket

    2. The Hoff
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Nah, Foden may not play and Spurs are pretty average. Not worth a hit - just captain KDB.

      what would you do in my position (below)?

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

    Maguire + DCL -> Mendy + Greenwood for free?

    Open to other defensive options...

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

      I like it!

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

        hadn't clocked Mendy until just now, think I can handle the rotation and it frees me from triple Man United prison..

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Digne/Azpi instead of Mendy and yes

    3. The Hoff
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Not sure that is great - can you sell Maguire for someone cheaper and get one of Martial/Bruno/Rashford? Or just do DCL-> Greenwood if you don't have 3 man u players?

      what would you do in my position (below)

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

        I have x3 United hence my selling of Maguire, have Martial/Bruno already

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

      Nah, can see Mendy short of minutes.

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

        yeah but he's fairly safe to play this week and has looked good since the restart

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

      It looks good but I would bet on Digne to outscore Mendy for the rest of the season.

  5. The Hoff
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Would be very grateful for your thoughts on this…

    Which two should I play (one has to be A or B):
    A. Doherty (shu)
    B. Kiko Gemenia (NOR)
    C. Saka (LEI)
    D. Foden (NEW)
    E. DCL (SOU)

    Thanks!
    (Bottomed)

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

      A + D

      1. The Hoff
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        thanks!

      2. The Hoff
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        I actually have to play 3... what's the third one to play?

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

      Doherty and Foden for sure.

      1. The Hoff
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        thanks, I actually have to play 3... what's the third one to play?

      1. The Hoff
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        fair, I actually have to play 3... what's the third one to play?

  6. Liber
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    I have 3 defenders and need one to start or transfer out for a hit.

    Robinson (likely benched)
    Holgate (likely injured)
    Richie (Man City)

    What would you do?

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      no hit unless its some nice upgrade like Digne/Doherty/AWB/Azpi

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

        Thanx .. yeah .. have 6.5 mil to spend.. hmm

    2. The Hoff
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      no hit, just play Holgate->Robinson->Ritchie

  7. wulfranian
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    What are the news about Holgate?Is he ok?

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

      I think not, but don't hold me to it.

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

    Sheff Utd v Wolves.

    Do you play the Blades defender (Egan) or the Wolves defender (Saiss) as your 3rd def with the other on the bench?

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

      I would play Egan.

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

        Yeh, cheers

    2. gers23
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      flip a coin imo tough.I would lean towards playing Seiss

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

      Saiss

    4. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Saiss

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

        Hmm

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

    Who scores more points in the final five:

    A) Mahrez
    B) Foden

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

      Probably Mahrez

    2. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      A

    3. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      similar imo

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

      A

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

    I need to bench Saka or DCL

    Saka and Arsenal seem to be in form

    DCL has been poor lately and doesn’t get any service from team. But he could be due tbh

    1. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      If he doesn't get the service he's not going to be due. Everton were so poor last night

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

    For GW 34+
    sell mane/Mahrez/son for kdb?
    TC kdb or just captain?
    Thinking TC kdb in 36+

    Thoughts??

  12. gedda
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Hello Team, are we expecting scout picks today?

    /g

  13. Snapes on a Plane
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Wolves double up on defense or bench Saiss(shu) to play Femina(nor)?

  14. gers23
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Anybody think we could see Chelsea losing tonight? Think it'll be a hard game for them.

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

      A week ago maybe, but Palace's defence has collapsed.

    2. Better luck next year
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Derbys usually close. Think they’ll win by a goal

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

      Palace do turn us over some time but think we will have more desire than them and run out 2-0 winners

  15. Red Rock
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Would you take a -4 to do Saka -> Foden and play 3-5-2?

    1. Duffy Dunk
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Yes

  16. Duffy Dunk
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    With Kante out, CHE's defence should be weaker right?
    Considering Azpi...

    1. Valar(Keith)
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Brought azpi in today. As an Ayew owner since the league restarted I can tell you for a fact that he and palace just do not look like scoring. Wouldve just got james but I got excess cash so splurging a bit.

  17. Disturbed
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Jimmy > Deeney for a hit madness?

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

      Yes

    2. Duffy Dunk
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Not confident on WAT being able to take advantage of another weak team.

      1. Disturbed
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Thanks. Probably won’t. Just hate having no players in both games tonight.

        Azpi?

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

          Yeah, or city defender? But azpi more reliable

          1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Really tempted to do this actually. Thanks.

    Bottomed

    Who would you prefer over the next few weeks?

    A. Sterling
    B. Mahrez
    C. Williams
    D. Salah

    Williams has outscored sterling and mahrez over the season and has better recent form too. But...?!

    1. AJ24
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Who's Williams?

      1. james 101
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Ha. Sorry. Willian

    2. Rinseboy
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      tough maybe Salah over a few weeks but Sterling just this week. Whats the rest of team?

      1. james 101
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Marty
        TAA Doherty Saiss
        KDB Fernandes XXXX Martial Pulisic
        Rashford Kane

        Button Nk Taylor Robinson

        1. Rinseboy
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Nice team! Maybe Sterling then.

          Thoughts on Salah and DCL to Kane and Pulisic for a-4?

          Pope
          TAA Maguire Doherty Aurier
          KDB Mahrez Martial Bruno Salah
          Jimi
          Martinez DCL Nketiah Fernandez

  24. AJ24

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

    1. Duffy Dunk
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      A

    2. james 101

      Coin toss honestly

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

    Play Pope (whu) or Henderson (WOL)?

    1. james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      P

    2. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I couldn't decide so went bench boost. no chance on earth to be confident in who to pick

    3. AJ24
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Pope

  26. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Team done. hit done. chip done. good luck all.

    1. james 101
      • 8 Years

      Good luck!!

  27. Kudo Warrior

    PEOPLE TAKING HITS

    If you truly believe that the person(s) you are bringing in will outscore the person(s) you are taking out (even in the long term) + 4 points, then take the hit.

    Simple as that.

  28. TB303
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Sterling (c) if chasing ??

    1. Daniel S. - Forgot the GW 3…
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I have a feeling he will be rested. That is why I plan next week Salah to Sterling. Just a hunch

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

      I think even if not chasing he's a great shout.

  29. 50mildownthedraintonymartia…
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    is it vital to have a liverpool defender on a WC?

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

      Imo no

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

      If it were me, I'd have VVD or Gomez. I can see the wingbacks getting short minutes.

  30. The Mighty Hippo
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    I had fully intended to get Kane in for this week, but I watched the spurs vs. everton game last night and there's no chance he's getting near my team now.

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

      Yeah, I was of the same mind. Was gonna switch Vardy for him but now no.
