FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

Only eight Fantasy managers remain in our FFS Cup following the completion of Gameweek 34+.

The quarter-finals of this competition are now set to take place in Gameweek 35+, the deadline for which is at 11:30 BST today.

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

Former winner Wild Rover, the only manager remaining who sits outside the top 100k, has reached the last eight after an 86-81 win over Moore Rovers.

Wild Rover will now take on Manisaspor, one of three FPL bosses who sit inside the top 10,000 who are still alive in our FFS Cup.

We’ve got an all-top 5k clash in the last eight, with graslauk facing Powell.

Bencaraway reached the quarter-finals by virtue of their superior overall rank, having drawn 63-all with wilkinson.

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.

    Chasing 62 points in my country league. Thinking of punting on KDB captain. Thoughts?

    Yes some benching risk but a lot seem to be swerving him this week and he always has the potential to go massive. Plus if he's rested because of the knock, one would think that he's less likely to come on at all

    1. Printing Mane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Any other options?

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Vardy, Martial maybe

        Mahrez, Foden have higher rotation risk than KDB I'd say. Or I could just go Bruno and hope he goes maverick himself

    2. Lindelol
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I am 38 behind my country’s leader - planning something different like that too. I did captain Salah last week because of that reason and for LMS. But this time Salah seems a rotation risk so considering Sterling(c)

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        If I had sterling I'd definitely captain him. Great move last week on salah (c). My maverick move was to transfer him to Foden

  4. Drogba Legend
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    What to do?

    Pat
    TAA - Aurier - AWB - Doh
    Salah - Son - Bruno - KDB
    Jimmy - Green

    Mart - Foden - Lasc. - Nketiah

    A) Save
    B) Salah > Sterling
    C) Son > Mahrez
    D) Foden > Bowen
    E) Son + someone to > Sterling (C) and someone (-4)

    Will FH next GW and sitting 75kOR and chasing ML rival by 20

    1. Stef rocks
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Very tricky - everything could happen from huge boost to serious backfire.

      I think TAA and Salah will be benched but both can do damage as subs. I would get rid of Son - to Pulisic or Antonio. If someone doesn’t play at all you have nothing to worry about with that bench

      My advice is Just follow your own gut feeling (then it will be yours fault when things F up) 🙂

  5. pjanns
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Would you buy Willian or Pulisic?

    Or is it a coin toss?

    1. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I flipped a coin few weeks back and got Willian.

      1. fish&chips

        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Lucky you

  6. LegendMoon

    TC activated come on Bruno !!!!

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

    Should i get both Mane and Salah on a free hit? Or if only one, who?

    1. Tsssst
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Mane

      1. KingZZ
        • 4 Years

        Thanks mate.

  8. IRBOX ⚽
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    What’s your worst decision of the season? I can think of a few for my own team.

    • Benching Lundstram’s two mega hauls

    • Captaining Ashley Barnes over KDB when he registered a monster score at home to Watford in an 8-0 drubbing.

    • Not getting Vardy

    • Richarlison over Bruno Fernandes 9 GW’s ago when they were both 8.0 and still haven’t been able to find a way for the Portuguese to come in to my side since

    The latter two are the worst season defining moments which have resulted in an awful campaign for yours truly

    1. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah you Foden last week

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        To*

    2. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Sticking with Abraham for too long

    3. The_Fish
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Getting Ceballos in gw3.

      When KDB got injured I brought Mahrez in. Got 1 point from 3 games. Haven’t owned since.

    4. Rasping Drive (BSC Small Bo…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      - Taking an 8pt hit to get in Harry Kane (c) in GW3 at home to Newcastle.
      = Taking a 4 pt hit and captaining Sterling at home to Brighton in GW4. Both these stellar decisions put me at 3.7m OR

      Since City play Brighton again this week, would it be folly to captain Sterling again, I wonder?

    5. jdp219
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Half of my captaincy decisions.

    6. Easy Cheesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I chose to organise bruno too. Brought him on WC last week and will probs c to the end.

      I sold salah last week but was on a WC (if that is an excuse)

      Never had ings whilst all ML rivals did

      How do you find out how many hits you have taken?

    7. Easy Cheesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 3 days ago

      In hindsight my strategy of only making transfers from gw24 that were guaranteed to play in gw29 (Wolves, burnely, bournemouth, watford) to save my FH to later was maybe a bit of an over-think. Had triple bournemouth At one point

    8. BIELSA
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Forgetting to update my team when utd plqyed bournemouth last week. I was going to get greenwood and captain bruno. Cost me 24pts and probably a spot in the top 100 overall, still gutted. Worst thing is i remembered at 11.33 i hadnt done my team. 5 minutes earlier and id of been okay

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Haven’t a great season though mate! It’s tough with such regularities of GW’s at present

  9. Mr Q
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Any newcastle fans here? How likely is it Ritchie plays?

  10. Akshatjazz
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Who should I captain this week

    A) kbd
    B) sterling
    C) Bruno

    1. Stef rocks
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      B if you have it

      1. Akshatjazz
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yes I do

  11. cylus11 ( Manager) - Russia…
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Which one to start in playing 11:
    1. Mahrez
    2. Ings.

    Leaning towards Ings. He can do well against the United defence.

    Thoughts

  12. All about that Baines
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Henderson
    Saiss Mendy Fernandez
    KDB Sterling Son Bruno
    Greenwood Rashford Jimi

    Aarons, Robinson, Duda

    1FT 0.4itb
    Want to use TC this week. Suggestions please.

    1. PaulParker
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I’ve got the same question. Bruno looks most nailed, but saints are no pushovers

  13. kysersosa
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Bottomed....

    Ballers, Team needs some work, but im happy to hold for 1 more week and have 2FT's.

    Pope
    TAA, Doherty, Aurier
    KDB, (B)runo, Martial, Mane, Pulisic
    Greenwood, Jimenez

    Button, DCL, Lascelles, Taylor

    0.4 ITB, 1FT

    Thoughts?

    Could simple do Salah to Mane as a shield move, (75 ahead in my ML, other guy has Salah).

    1. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Stick with mane. More chance of starting this week and probably needs to haul is he wants to be part of the golden boot race

  14. olidooley
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    All set?

    Pope
    TAA Holgate AWB
    Salah(c) KDB Bruno Mahrez Sarr
    Vardy Rashford

    Button Lascelles Robinson Connolly

  15. LordEllison
    • 5 Years

      Kiko

    2. Stef rocks

      Serge

  16. Stef rocks
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Absolute bench headache. Who to bench?
    A) Mahrez
    B) KDB
    C) Foden
    D) Jimenez

    1. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Same here. Think I'll start all 3 city boys

      1. bigbudgie
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I have those three but not confident any of them are starting TBH! Foden has rotated games since starting, Mahrez you never know, KDB took a knock end of last game...

    2. Abra Dubravka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Foden

  17. PaulParker
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Best TC options this week?

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Maybe Bruno, maybe Sterling. Vardy can also work.

    2. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Hopefully Bruno as I'm on him

    3. pingissimus
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Ha

      Just seen this - look below. City or possibly Vardy. I’d ignore United as Southampton are handy. Bournemouth are definitely in a fight and Leicester aren’t all that really - were being held by Palace until last 10 minutes or so.

      Brighton defence looks ripe to me

      1. PaulParker
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Can’t afford Vardy, and not sure I have the balls to go city!

        On FH next week, so maybe leaving the TC to the last game!

        1. pingissimus
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Ah FH too - that’s going to be tough with cup rotation in the air. Last week TC is how I started the season. That fixture!

  18. Nightf0x
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    After last gw, chasing ML 41 pts, which?

    A) kiko son to sterling pieters/bardsly/long, Will bench him this gw, FH 36+, 37+ jimi to ings, 38+ puli to Dsilva

    B) jimi son to vardy/jesus & mahrez/antonio, FH 36+, 37+ vardy/jesus kiko -4 to burnley def. & Ings, 38+ puli to dsilva or -4 with antonio to city mid.

  19. WhatWouldYourZlatanSay
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Pope or Foster in goal?

    Thanks guys.

    1. jdp219
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I'd go Foster.

  20. pingissimus
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Beginning to have dangerous thoughts

    WC KdB 🙂

    Had I logged on last week it would have been to TC Mo against that wretched Brighton defence and bring in Willian for Son. Too cross after my double hit losing Vardy.

    Brighton remain awful and the temptation is to TC someone who is slightly off as template captain. The alternative is Dilva in 38.

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Sterling?

      1. pingissimus
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Almost brought him in this week - slight regret I bailed. But leaving him to 37 now after the cup probably

  21. Tsssst
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Walker or Mendy this GW?

  22. Mattias
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    What are Liverpool fans thoughts on Trent being benched this weekend? How likely is it?

  23. Sebbo29
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Play Richarlison or Jimenez? Or just flip a coin.

    1. Abra Dubravka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Jimi for me

  24. pukunui
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    I used my FT to do Jimi >Vardy (like many, many others). So team is Pope (Martin), Doh, Mag, VvD (Kiko, Holgate), Antonio, KdB, Mahrez, Fernandes, Pulisic, Rashford, Vardy (Nketiah). My question is having brought Vardy in should I now captain him? If not who would you captain and why?

    1. Rasping Drive (BSC Small Bo…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I would captain Bruno out of that lot.

  25. Abra Dubravka
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Bench:
    A) Mahrez
    B) Rashford
    C) Jiménez
    D) Greenwood?

    1. Rasping Drive (BSC Small Bo…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Based on form, probably Jimenez out of those four.

  26. Hotdogs for Tea
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Going to be scenes with the lineups this game week 🙂

    1. pingissimus
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      You can ditto that comment here on in. 36/7 fall either side of the cup and threaten almost the complete template and 38 is 38

      Very glad not to be holding onto BB 🙂

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        i think the buildup to the cup against poor teams is going to be carnage - probably more next week than this week

        Then add the game after the semis too ... with the FA Cup final just 5 days after GW38 too

        Think I better use my TC this week

        1. pingissimus
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 3 days ago

          TC is what I’m looking at right now.

          MBP is suggesting Dilva in 38. Big send off party with people lining up to get him his hattie. It’s a good thought no?

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            could be injured before then and his sign off could be the FA Cup final 😉

            bird in the hand and all that ...

  27. gellinmagellan
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Chasing about 50 (Salah captain worker to reduce it). Who should I captain?
    Salah
    Vardy
    KDB
    Bruno (not the ideal choice for chasers right?)
    Mahrez

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Vardy
      Salah
      KdB
      Fernandes

      in that order if you are chasing

      1. gellinmagellan
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Thanks!

    2. UTG
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I think Salah is a big rotation risk this week. I’d go Vardy as chasing

  28. jdp219
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Which differential (relative to ML rival) should I pick up?

    1) Martial
    2) Mahrez
    3) Vardy (means a hit)

  29. BNMC
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Which of these do we think is most likely to be benched?

    KDB, Sterling, Mahrez

    1. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Mahrez

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

    Captain?

    A) Vardy
    B) Bruno
