Aleksandar Antonov wins 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League crown

A fantastic Gameweek 38+ for Aleksandar Antonov was enough for the Bulgarian to leap from third to first in the overall Fantasy Premier League standings and clinch the 2019/20 crown.

Aleksandar scored a whopping 93 points without the aid of a chip, with his successful captaincy of Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) proving key.

Double-digit hauls for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) and Bruno Fernandes (£9.0m) also boosted his score, with almost 70% of his Gameweek 38+ total coming from those three aforementioned players.

The two managers who had been immediately above our new champion, Joshua Bull and erstwhile leader Chris McGowan, both used chips in Gameweek 38+ but were edged out on the final day.

Joshua used his second Wildcard and racked up 68 points, overtaking Chris but finishing 18 points short of Aleksandar.

Our runner-up captained Harry Kane (£11.0m) on the concluding afternoon of football but even if he had handed the armband to De Bruyne, would still have finished in second spot.

Above: Aleksandar’s winning team

Chris used his Triple Captain chip on Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), meanwhile, with the Egyptian only registering a ‘one-pointer’ after coming off the bench in the second half on Tyneside.

Again, though, handing the armband to his vice-captain, Raheem Sterling (£12.0m), wouldn’t have stopped Aleksandar from winning.

Chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen had a Gameweek 38+ to forget after a memorable season, captaining Salah after taking a hit to bring the Liverpool winger in.

Magnus’s Gameweek score of 40 saw him drop from fourth to 11th in the overall standings.

Fantasy Football Scout Leagues

Aleksandar and Chris finished as first and second in our Fantasy Football Scout league, with Bill Wilkins claiming the bronze medal after a successful Free Hit on the final day.

Our Members League was won by Nathan Woollaston, who finished three points clear of regular contributor Lateriser.

Tom Russell claimed the third podium spot in that league.

Ismail Hossan Rasel was the victor in our post-restart mini-league, with TopMarx coming out on top amongst the Mods and Cons.


Congratulations to all of the above managers on their hugely successful seasons.

We’ll have more reaction to come on these success stories in the next few days and weeks.

    So, finally got round to watching Match of the Day after a long day out where phone signal was crap to non existent. Nice timing by the Mrs that one! 🙂

    Happy I managed to scrape 3rd overall but what a day to miss such important leaked lineups and have a shocker. Salah wanting to catch golden boot and Klopp benches him. Couldn't believe it. Likely would have stuck KDB in for Mane instead and triple captained Sterling. Haven't worked out if that would have been enough to take 1st. Don't want to know actually!

    Congrats to Alexsandar for an amazing last week to take the crown.

      Unlucky QOTSA, great season by you all the same.

        Absolutely. So much you did went right this season, and Gameweek 38 is such a nutty matchday for myriad reasons. Luck definitely needed on the final day. Very well done, regardless!

          Thanks mate. Same to everybody else.

          Just shows how important these leaked lineups are and what they can change. KDB in for Mane might have stole it. I wanted one of the guys I started with in GW1 and figured most would have KDB and just hoped Salah would outscore him.

          I'll moan at the Mrs in the morning but to be honest, she won't care and I had a great day out with her and my wee boy so all was not lost. 🙂

            If it's any consolation, so many of us - me included - were worse off for actually getting those leaks and making hasty last-minute decisions. KDB for Mane would obviously have been beneficial but who knows what choices you would have made at the time. I, for some reason, brought in Richarlison late on, as a perfect example...

      holdon.. I read this thinking.you meant 3rd in your work ml.or something!

    Fell from 110K to 178K in final GW. Comment if you did worse

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Finished 25K. But for a tantalising day during DGW30+ I'd broken into the top 1000. It's been a painful slide.

      1. Mr. Chimes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I think my best was 99K this season. My goal was top 200K as I was performing horribly for awhile but to fall so many spots and make my worst transfers of the year on the last week just hurts different lol

    2. GuenDoozy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 1 day ago

      5K > 28K since in the last 5 GWs. Some shocking decisions from my end and bad luck with transfers and captaincy.

  3. FOO FIGHTER

    If there is a 4.0 starting GK from one of the new boys next season, would you punt?

    20k rank jump to 53k.

    Also 3rd in cash ml going into the day, pipped my cash ml 2nd place by 8 points( he tc dilva, so.dodged a bullet)

    Nice end to an otherwise frustrating season!

    It’s been a long time boys and girls.

    I hope you are all keeping safe and had a good FPL season.

    For me...
    Overall rank- 63,189
    Total points - 2289

    A slightly disappointing season, my 5th best finish and 2nd spot in my main mini league!

    We go again in 6 weeks!

    1. PascalCygan

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years

      £5.5m a definite possibility. He was raised from £4.5m to £5.0m after his last stand-out season, but he's bettered 2017/18 this time around.

      Just get the Burnley defender

    3. SweepaKeepa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      5.5, I reckon. Alisson & Edison the 6.0s.

    What a season, eh? Got to admit, I’m glad it’s finally over - just because it was so long!

    Finished inside 15k for the first time. A couple of years in on here and an improvement from last year’s 50k, first season I really went for it.

    Fell just short in one ML I really wanted to win but won a few as well. Just got to hold your hands up sometimes. I’m at peace with it now.

    Thank you all for your company over the past year. I’m looking forward to a few weeks of not thinking about FPL, then to start tinkering in pre-season!

    Take care of yourselves, stay safe and I’ll speak to you all soon.

    Cheers!

    What a season... Ended up with rank of 39k which is good having in mind that I was 125k after the restart. That's my 5th top 50k rank in 7 seasons playing, and also have 2 top 5k ranks.

    But before the season started, my friend asked me to make him an account, but he gave up completely at the very start so I led that account and changed it's name to mine and ended up with overall rank of 285!

    Had a chance to be 1st in Serbia, but finished 4th unfortunately. I made transfers and captained players on that account for which I wouldn't have cojones to make on the old one. However, I started overthinking even on that one on FH for the last GW...

    1. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Chin up, you'll bounce back next season. Also I would be very proud of the achievement with the second account.

    Congratulations Aleksandar!

    Personally I am happy with a 15,064 placed finished on 2,346 points! Although I was in the top 8k this morning and bought in Sterling instead of KDB based on thinking KDB wouldn’t start! Doh ... woulda captained him as well!

    Finished 22k last season on 2,350 points!

    So looking at improvement, won my mini league last year and my best friend won this year!

    I have to say a big thanks to the FFS community and to all the articles and all the experts on here! Last few years I’ve really started playing this game seriously with my head and not my heart and now it’s starting to bare fruits! Really looking forward to continuing this momentum next season.... can’t wait!

    19,16,11,9,9,8,6...great scoring from my front 7 and clawed back an awful season to 220k OR in the end. Delighted Watford went down, feel sorry for Bournemouth and happy to see United & Chelsea take the CL places ahead of mediocre Leicester... Can't wait for next season 🙂

          Exactly, could’ve gone worse for sure. Learnt a few things for next season and hopefully find it more fun, few times I almost gave up this year. All the best mate and see you soon hopefully

    Bittersweet end to the season for me. 2.8k my best ever season but blew a 23 point lead to my ML rival who I lead for most of the year and has beaten me 12 years on the spin.

    Last minute hit of TAA & Bruno -> Son & Digne the difference.

    Thanks for all the tips and advice this year everyone. You've all been a great help. See you next season!!

      ah sorry man... such fine margins isnt it... and like you said below another time it wouldve paid off

      all our judgements are educated so no regrets

    So I had KDB since GW1, was chasing a 34 point ML gap so thought I’d do KDB >> Mahrez as a differential.

    Turns out I had enough differentials and I missed out by 8 points, KDB got 10 more than Mahrez.

    To make it worse, if KDB and Mane didnt score in the 90th minute too I'd be in the prizes!!

    Sickening

      Taking KDB out was just asking for trouble as you well know, especially as one could never be confident that Mahrez would start, but as a lover of punts myself unlucky... onto next season 🙂

        yep in hindsight it was a silly move and out of character for me... but i rolled the dice and another time it wouldve paid off

        onto next season you're right... and without any excuses, covid perhaps went against us non-casuals given it somewhat abolished our edge re strategy around DGWs and blanks

        onwards and upwards my friend

    Quite bizzarre, I drew on points with mini league rival. I looked at rules and the winner is who made less transfers.
    I was sure i'd lost as taken more hits over the season.
    Then when all scores settled I found myself on top.
    The count back counted the free transfers in GW30+ my rival made.
    I won based on my 43 transfers vs 45 transfers for season.
    As close as it gets. I feel blessed.

        They say VAR, evens itself out.
        I used my WC in GW29, so felt royally shafted when the lockdown kicked in without any dgw points, then watched everyone was making free transfers.
        Thus more than happy to get this result.

        so true, we've got 500k people or so who are told what players to pick now, all our knowledge and studying of stats etc counts for a lot less now, much harder to get ahead!

    Why did FPL count those transfers in unlimited transfers we got when the FPL restarted?. Some people lost top 1k, 10k etc because of total transfers and because they played with one extra combination of players on their unlimited transfers.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      People who used FH lost a chip in the process. You had the closed part of the season to make transfers. It wasn't a WC, it was free transfers that counted as transfers.

      1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        and how many extra points did they get in the process of making those transfers?

        1. All about the galacticos
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Agreed all the way.
          Used WC in gw29. Then watched those who kept wildcard use unlimited free transfers & bench boost, as they knew they could WC out the following week. It was a wretched restart.

        2. ㅤRising
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Those were unlimited transfers so putting the same players in and out of the squad is normal there but ended up costing someone a top finish even tho for eg those players made the final draft but those transfers were counted unfortunately.

          1. ㅤRising
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            The point is most managers never knew those transfers were counted and if they knew they wouldn't be doing that

            1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              They got more points by making them. One less transfer and 1 less point equals a worse overall rank.

            2 months, 1 day ago

            It wasn't a WC though. Unlimited transfers that don't have a transfer cost only happen in GW1. If FPL said we all have a WC and can't use another chip then your story would have more conviction. Not sure why you would need more than 8 transfers really especially if you had been making transfers in the 9 blank GWs.

    2. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I highlighted the same shortly after the restart, and was chided for stating the obvious.

    3. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I'm still undecided as to whether to take a break from FPL next season.

      Not sure if I find it fun anymore.

      because they were unlimited free transfers. Doesnt mean they're not transfers.

    I see a lot of people saying that being patient is one lesson they learned after this season... I'm not so sure about that. Normally I'm a very patient FPL manager and it was largely my downfall this season - I kept giving dross like Pukki, Cantwell and Lucas Moura chance after undeserved chance in my team.

    I guess 'know when to be patient' would be a better lesson.

    1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Sarr and DCL got too much time in my team.

      1. Greek Freak
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Those two as well probably for me. Though after the restart I stopped caring about how to play and just took it week by week by taking lots of hits.

        1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I guess I was happy enough with my team until the -16 in GW36.

      2. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        DCL was my first off the bench since restart and I never used him.

    2. seewhyaxe
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I had the worst season since I played 'properly'.

      8 hits this year and I tried to play aggressively but more importantly, I realize I've been really stubborn throughout like not getting on the Vardy bandwagon soon enough and making too many punts.

      1. Greek Freak
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Pretty bad one for me too. At least it was mostly fun post-restart.

    3. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      As always, its about picking your spots.

      One prime patience example i can bring up is that I held Auba from restart until his game against Norwich and captained him. Those 34 points were well worth the 3 weeks of extra holding as you work around the rest of the team

      1. Greek Freak
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        As I said, know when to be patient.

        I wildcarded Auba in GW31 just so I can captain him for Norwich, and then immediately transferred him out. Got him again on my FH this week. He's been good to me this season 🙂

    4. Greek Freak
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I forgot to mention Tielemans in the list of dross I was too patient with... For all my bad luck this season it was certainly compounded by some awful decisions early on!

    5. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I would say the only players to have been patient with would be KdB (who I only owned for 5 weeks total) and TAA

    Been a weard year and I think all in all would my position of changed without C19? Who cares I’m blaming var for it all anyway.
    All I know is I’ve got a very good idea of the team I want as soon as it all kicks off again. Not sure if I’ll be able to afford it though

    1. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I did lose a lot of momentum due to Covid.

      Couldn't wait for the season to end after the restart.

  29. Freshy

    Had 65 points in #38 using my free hit.
    If I played GW #37 team I would have had 72
    Overall Rank:- 459,476
    For all the horrible moves I made during the season Im happy with it.
    I did really well at the last 8 GW;s to win my ML by 10.
    Having a team value of 107+ was a big advantage for the restart WC and it carried me up the ladder.

    Last minute sold Salah so I can get Auba in

    That one last min transfer help me maintained a 6pts lead in my ML
    Hours of articles reading and decision making paid off.

    Also finished top 8k!
