FFS Cup

The winner of our latest FFS Cup competition revealed

The latest edition of our FFS Cup came to a conclusion in midweek, with Powell coming out on top after an 81-72 win over Manisaspor.

The pair shared seven of their starting XI going into Gameweek 37+: Nick Pope (£5.1m), James Tarkowski (£5.5m), Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.7m), Bruno Fernandes (£9.1m), Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m), Marcus Rashford (£8.9m) and Danny Ings (£7.6m).

Powell’s differentials were Erik Pieters (£4.3m), Christian Pulisic (£7.4m), Raheem Sterling (£11.9m) and Mason Greenwood (£4.8m), with Manisaspor’s unique picks being Matt Doherty (£6.5m), Raul Jimenez (£8.1m), Anthony Martial (£8.5m) and Phil Foden (£5.5m).

All eight of these players delivered at least one attacking return for their owners but Sterling’s 17-point haul was perhaps the key variable.

The pair opted for different captaincy picks, too: Powell backed Rashford, with his opponent plumping for Martial.

Powell took a hit ahead of Saturday’s deadline, too, bringing in Pieters and Tarkowski for an inspired triple-up on the Burnley defence.

Even that minus four deduction and a captaincy failure didn’t make a difference, with Pulisic’s nine-point haul in the final Gameweek 37+ fixture at Anfield rubber-stamping our winner’s victory.

Powell’s strong Gameweek was enough to lift him up to 343rd in the world, his highest rank of the season.

Manisaspor is tantalisingly close to a top 1k finish, meanwhile, sitting in 1,340th place.

In our third-place play-off, Sharpey defeated Joax2 69-63.

Once again, the pair shared seven of their starting XI and both managers joined Manisaspor in handing the armband to Martial.

The benching of Romain Saiss (£4.8m) left Joax2 without a third playing FPL defender, which proved crucial as Sharpey triumphed by the six points that Willy Boly (£4.9m) brought him against Crystal Palace.

Hauls for Alexander-Arnold and Greenwood on Wednesday also saw Sharpey home, who triumphed despite taking an eight-point hit going into Gameweek 37+.

    A) Jimi to Kane -4

    B) Jimi to Kane, Bruno to Salah, Rashford to Greenwood -12

    C) play Jimi or Doherty - no hit

    What would people do? (think Salah might haul)

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      A or C

    2. Abra Dubravka

      I’m think both Jiménez and Doherty are primed for an attacking return this week!!

      1. Scholes Out Forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 29 days ago

        More than Kane or City players? I think it’s a fair play to rid Wolves players for city or spurs players no?

          • 3 Years
          5 months, 29 days ago

          Oh yeah for sure Mate!!! Just something to factor in If selling for a hit tho maybe, I see Jiménez getting his usual goal or assist and Doherty could quite feasibly get another assist, look at what Trent got against them last night, Doherty plays on the same side and slightly further forward too

    4. Ashleyajolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 29 days ago

      Not B as too many hits.
      A or C.

  2. GNev2

    Used my 2 FT to get this team...

    Pope
    TAA Pieters Doherty
    Salah KDB Bruno Mahrez
    Rashford Ings Greenwood

    Foden, Stevens, Kiko

    Is it mad to go Doherty + Rashford > Bardsley and Kane for -8 (currently 12pts ahead in league)

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      Yes it is

  3. FC Hakkebøf
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 29 days ago

    How to fund Sterling (C)

    A) KDB + Digne to Sterling + Branthwaite
    B) KDB + Jimenez to Sterling + Wood
    C) Bruno + Jimenez to Sterling + Nketiah (play Nketiah or Dunk)
    D) Drop Sterling, get Silva for free and captain Salah

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      Can also get Mahrez for free..

    2. AlpoShearer

      B

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 29 days ago

        Forgot to say option a - C is for a hit.

  4. AlpoShearer
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 29 days ago

    Foden, Bruno and Vardy to Sterling, DSilva and Wood -4
    Yes or No?

  5. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 29 days ago

    Crazy to go super cheap for forwards on a free hit team?

    Pope
    TAA, Robertson, Aurier
    Salah(C), Antonio, Pulisic, KDB(VC), Sterling
    Ings, Greenwood

    Button, Tarkowski, Lamptey, Solanke

    1. FC Hakkebøf

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 29 days ago

        Silva over Pulisic too

    2. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years

      Yes

  6. HollywoodXI
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 29 days ago

    If was on a FH I’d be going cheap as chips at the back. I don’t think they’ll be many clean sheets on the final day.

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      Was on that earlier.
      Now going with

      Martinez
      Taa Robbo Aurier

      1. Boywiththesoupdragontattoo

          If ever there was a week for “wing backs” to “bomb on”.

    2. Abra Dubravka
      • 2 Years

      But assists and goals from defenders...

  7. yousunkmybattleship
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    5 months, 29 days ago

    A) Robertson + DSilva + Wood
    or
    B) Bardsley + Foden + Kane

    ?

    1. JoeSoap
      • 7 Years

  9. JoeSoap
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 29 days ago

    Tied in cash ML. Which players would you recommend from his team and what players might edge it for me, including captain? I have FH. Any thoughts appreciated.

    His team (has 1 FT and 0.1 in bank so potentially another City player)

    Martinez
    Barsley, Boly, Laporte, Tark, Tierney
    Salah, KDB, Martial, Bruno, Armstrong
    Kane, Ings, Greenwood

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 29 days ago

      Same keeper

      Tark pieters Robertson bench fodder

      Salah kdb sterling dilva fodder

      Kane ings greenwood

      Can u afford that?

      Digne over robertson otherwise

      1. JoeSoap
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 29 days ago

        Thanks for taking the time to respond. Can afford that & 0.5 over, just short of TAA.

        Had same keeper and similar defence to your suggestion. Was between Laporte/Pool defender
        Definitely want Dilva & Sterling. Was tempted to drop KDB though big risk.
        Forward line exactly as I currently have planned.

  10. PepSala
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 29 days ago

    Which one scores more

    A) Sterling(c) Nketiah Dilva
    B) Martial Jimmy Dilva(c)

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      A if Nketiah starts

      1. Dthinger
        • 3 Years

        and if sterling starts

  11. Silecro

    Would you do a bit of:
    Mane Mahrez Rashford —> Sterling DSilva Kane (-8)

    Tonight, if price changes will mean it’s unaffordable by Sunday?

    Otherwise will have to ditch Bruno/Vardy to facilitate moves

    1. Gegenpress
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      Yes

    2. Silecro
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      Is there any apparent reason why Mahrez out? Shouldnt be close to nailed since he was benched last GW? Or am I missing something

    3. screamer73
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      I'd keep Mahrez. And ditch one of Bruno/Vardy.

    Apologies if already reported but is Raheem Sterling in St Tropez ?

    1. Danstoke82
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      I saw this too. Does this make him unlikely to start or maybe even feature in GW38? Seems a bit weird if he doesn’t considering he’s going after the golden boot

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      Put it this way if you were him on £350k a week, to go to St Tropez with his family is like you going to the CO OP for a pint of milk.

      1. Danstoke82
        • 6 Years

        Haha very true!

    On FH who would you have out of

    1. Salah
    2. Mane

    &

    A. Kane
    B. Aubameyang

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Evans
      • 8 Years

      Kane and Salah

      very similar but I have salah have a look at my team couple posts up

      1. Champions united
        • 4 Years

        Auba is very costly

        1. Gegenpress
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 28 days ago

          He looked off the pace - Also I think Arsenal as a whole will be relaxed waiting for FA CUP, Watford will be fighting cats and dogs to stay in the prem.. Only thing going for Auba is golden boot not enough for me though especially after his last performance.

  22. pettdogg

    Jesus on Kane better option for the armband this week ?

    1. Ashleyajolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 29 days ago

      Neither Manchester City midfielder for me. Sterling/DSilva/KDB.

      If has to be Jesus/Kane I would pick Jesus as plays Norwich.

    2. Mid budget coach
      • 1 Year

      Can go either way and you wouldn't be wrong in your thinking

    G2G or can I get any more differentials in here?

    Jesus could be on the end of Mahrez, Kdb and D. Silva's assists.

      I'd want one of Kane KDB or Dilva somehow

  27. wantsharptv
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 29 days ago

    Sterling and Mahrez for KDB and Fernandes for a -4

    1. screamer73
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      Solid

    2. JfA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 29 days ago

      If Man U are playing on the counter, Bruno could be lethal. I'm struggling to justify getting rid of a Man U.

      1. JfA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 29 days ago

        Lethal as in supplying the forwards.

        1. wantsharptv
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 29 days ago

          I've got Martial and rashford so might be time to let bruno go

          1. JfA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 29 days ago

            Son and Kane seemed to tear them apart on the counter, Bruno and Martial could do the same.

  28. wantsharptv
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 29 days ago

    ?

  29. JfA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 29 days ago

    I'm thinking of bringing Kane in for Vardy but then it would be a hit for Sterling KDB, is it worth it?
