FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

We’ve reached the last-32 stage in our FFS Open Cup and FFS Members Cup after the latest rounds of both competitions played out in Gameweek 30.

There are £300-worth of prizes up for grabs in each tournament, with the Gameweek 35 finale drawing ever closer.

FFS OPEN CUP

The results from the fifth round of our FFS Open Cup can be viewed here.

The draw for the sixth round of our FFS Open Cup can be viewed here.


The two highest-ranked managers of round five bowed out of the competition.

The Fighting Cock sits at an impressive 626th in the world but after squeaking through in a fourth-round tie-breaker thanks to his lofty rank, his run in this year’s tournament has come to an end.

stonerrocks was the victor over the high-flying Spurs fan, prevailing 63-52.

ZeleniMD sat just outside the top 1k going into Gameweek 30, meanwhile, but was edged out by ronaldez, who is now the lowest-ranked manager left in our FFS Open Cup following exits from Wulfrunian and the Chaser.

Six managers who currently lie in the top 10k have made it through to round six, with kenzo. – who sits in 3,357th place – boasting the best rank among them.

Goldtop73‘s Gameweek 30 score of 75 was the best of the fifth round, while pk all stars can consider himself the ‘unluckiest’ manager of the last 64 as he was defeated by RobinHuth despite racking up an impressive 69 points.

FFS MEMBERS CUP

The results from the fourth round of our FFS Members Cup can be viewed here.

The full draw for the fifth round of our FFS Members Cup can be viewed here.


Mr. Rabbit had a super Gameweek 30, as his score of 74 was not only enough to beat G00Li0 but also the joint-best of the FFS Members Cup fourth round.

The cherry on the icing is that Mr. Rabbit is now the highest-ranked manager left in round five after climbing to 1,416th in the world.

Armaan.ag was the erstwhile highest flyer in this competition but despite losing that tag, he still made it through to the last 32 after a 64-61 win over Whitty.

There was a hard-luck story involving KevIRL, whose commendable Gameweek 30 score of 71 was bettered by few other managers in the fourth round.

Unfortunately for him, opponent Mohd Rodzi – who next faces the aforementioned Mr. Rabbit – matched that score and progressed by virtue of having a better rank.


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.

    My current Wildcard:

    Mendy, Forster
    Rudiger, Cancelo, Regulion, James, Philips
    Sterling, Fernandes, Salah, Jota, Lingard
    Kane, Iheanacho, Kane

    All thoughts welcome, too much rotation risk in the defence?

    1. Sedemuda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I can see rotation with only one Kane at a time getting a start!

      1. Arfaish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Wish edit was an option, my mistake! Kane is Vydra

    2. mcsteely
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Kane twice would be a dream WC for me. Not sure on Sterling though.

      1. Arfaish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Yeah Sterling is a short term punt as he is likely to play this week, will become Son or stay if he performs.

    3. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Sorry Kane twice, second is slightly impressive Vydra!

    4. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Nacho to Kane

      1. Arfaish
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Good one

  2. mcsteely
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Would you use a FT to swap Tierney to Trent?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Yes. I'm going to captain Trent this week.

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

        I would captain him as well after that amazing assist vs RM.

    2. Bucket Man
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Yes

  3. The Knights Template
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    These prizes seem a bit low.

  4. Bucket Man
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Any thoughts. 2FT

    Problems with double Leeds attack, edging towards keeping Bamford as lots of options in midfield. Watkins, Gundogan, although he should be OK this week. Think defence is ok

    Martinez
    Dias, Shaw, Rudiger
    Salah, Bruno, Gundogan, Mount
    Kane, Bamford, Watkins
    Areola, Raphinha, Cresswell, Dallas

    Could go Watkins to Vydra and Rapha to Jota/Lingard. Or Iheanacho/ something else

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Gundo to Jota or Neto?

      1. Bucket Man
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I think he starts this week so not sure if worth holding one more week. What do you think to Watkins out?

  5. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Couple of quick questions on a WC

    1) Best GK till end of season?
    A: Mendy...good 4 fixtures then mixed thereafter. low ceiling
    B: Leno..good fix till end of season, higher baps potential but poor defence
    C: Martinez...very tough fixtures but 10 pointer whenever he keeps a cs

    2) Best sub defender along with Holding
    A: Dawson...good fix till end of season, nailed. goal threat but no baps
    B: Veltman..good fix till gw36 (esp gw33), good attacking threat
    C: Masuaku..similar to dawson but higher baps/atttaching threat. is he nailed?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Bogle

      1. unitednations
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Good shout

  6. Oggle22
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Can't wait to transfer Bale out and him destroy it in the double! Reckon it's worth keeping or get shut now?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Keep for another crappy gw score, you know you want to.

  7. Nay08
      1 month, 6 days ago

      what do we think of Sterling as one-week captain punt this week?
      he didn't start against Leicester and Dortmund

      I'm on WC and if I get sterling, I'll transfer him to Son next week

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        He's hibernating, as usual.

      2. HD7
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Im also contemplating it mate
        Though it means taking someone out from my WC team, most probably TAA.

        If Mahrez didnt play midweek it would have been easier

    • SHOWSTOPPERRR
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Sorry no replies

      Guys wc draft.Need suggestions.TIA.

      Mendy Forster
      Taa Rudiger shaw coady dawson
      Salah bruno mount gundo lingz
      Kane laca iheanacho

      Plan is to do salah to son gw32. With this team I can cover city chel lei wolves asnl who have good fixtures.

      Any suggestions guys?

    • fpork
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      What do you think about this WC-draft. Is Mahrez a bad idea?

      Leno (Forster)
      Rüdiger, Phillips, Veltman (Reguilón) (Shaw)
      Fernandes, Salah, Son, Jota, Mahrez
      Iheanacho, Kane (Vydra)

      1. MightyGar
          1 month, 6 days ago

          He is a risk. If you went for Maddison / Mount / Lingard you could upgrade Vydra

      2. Zola
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        A) TAA and Son (+ 0.6 change)
        B) Dias and Salah

        On a WC and this is my last decision. Pondering B and switching Salah to Son for DGW, then back to Salah again (though means missing out on Leeds away).

        Rest is:

        Mendy, Forster

        Shaw, Saiss, Rudiger, Phillips

        Bruno, Jota, Lingard, Neto

        Kane, Vardy, Ihenacho

        Going with the Leicester double up initially and will move Kelechi on when he loses his place.

      3. Assist me a river
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Rate 1 to 10?

        Mendy
        Trent - Dias - Rudiger
        Salah - Lingard - Bruno- Raphinha
        Iheanacho - Kane

        Bench: Forester, Phillips, Holding, Vydra (wil play this GW ahead of Raphinha)

        Comment if you miss any specific players.

      4. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        How's my WC team:
        Mendy
        TAA,Shaw,Rudiger
        Salah,Jota,Bruno,Son,Lingard
        Kane,Iheanacho

        Forster, Holding,Masuaku,Davis

        1. KGJ United
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I have something similar.

          Front 8 is the same.
          Same GK pair.
          Have TAA.
          Not sure on the rest of the def myself.
          currently: Shaw, Rudiger, Coady, Holding.
          debating
          a) Rudiger vs James
          b) Coady vs Fafana
          Not quite decided on Shaw and Holding either.

          Difficult.

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

        Raphinha or Gundogan to Jota for -4?

        1. sneif4
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Risk of him not starting so -4 is a risk. If for free I would have said Raph to Jota

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

            So you're saying the safest option is to hold and play Raph? Personally, I think Gundo is at a larger risk of not starting. Cheers

      6. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Bielsa is such a breath of fresh air

        Talking about trying to take the ball off City and aiming to win the game.

      7. Cheeto__Bandito
          1 month, 6 days ago

          If Jota starts v Villa and then Madrid 2nd leg will he really start against Leeds? Would be his 4th start in a raw in the pace of a week and a half, so can easily see rotation there.

          1. Cheeto__Bandito
              1 month, 6 days ago

              row*

            • 4 Years

            Anyone considering Vardy for the armband this week?

            1. Christina.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              no why?

                • 7 Years
                1 month, 6 days ago

                Because he is going to score?

                1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  Something like that

          3. sneif4
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Any thoughts on what to do here? I've still got WC, BB and TC.

            Martinez
            Azpi Dias Dunk
            Bruno Son Lingard Gundo
            Kane Bamford Antonio
            4.0 Raph Dallas Lewis

            My current thinking is just Raph to Jota...

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

            Please rate this WC Draft:

            Mendy / Forster
            Laporte / Coady / Holding / Reguilon / Phillips
            Salah / Bruno / Jota / Lingard / Mount
            Kane / Lacazette / Iheanacho

            1. sneif4
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Not keen on Reguilon, but the rest looks great

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

                Just picked him because of the DGW. The plan is to transfer him out in GW33.

            2. FPL Virgin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              What's behind the Laporte pick?

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

                Firstly, he didn't play against Dortmund, then I believe he'll start this GW. Also, if Man City progresses in the CL, I think it is likely he will play most of the league games.

          5. anish10
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Best one week punt for this week?

            1. Hy liverpool
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Sterling or ings

                • 11 Years
                1 month, 6 days ago

                Lacazette

          6. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            I've drawn the person with the worst rank in the last 32 of the open cup - that's the end of my run then.

            1. Hy liverpool
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Ouch

          7. Buck The Trent
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Would you do Bale, Lookman, Antonio to Salah, Jota, Nacho for -8?

            The -8 hurts but might as well get rid of the deadwoods

            1. Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              That could work but if you have to choose to bring in Salah or Jota first, which one?

            2. Boxwoods
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

            1 month, 6 days ago

            Curious to see Kane with 3 times as many votes as Bruno in captaincy poll. Neither is great this week but think I'd prefer to back against the Spurs defence than United's.

            1. Would Ed Woodward
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Especially after that Newcastle game.

            Anyone seen a decent WC team with Sterling in it?...can’t see it.

              My team is decent for this week. not on a Wc though.

              Areola
              Dunk Stones Creswell
              Salah Gundog Raz Raphina Lingard

              this is mine with sterling, you can judge if it’s decent or not. Sterling to son next week and opens up son to Bruno week after

              It wont be decent with Sterling in it 😉

            • 3 Years

            Tried a WC draft without Son. How does it look?

            Mendy Forster
            Castagne Shaw Rudiger Cresswell Phillips
            Bruno Salah Jota Lingard Neto
            Kane Vardy Iheanacho

                Looks good, but no Son can hurt in 32

                    I realise no City but unsure who to include.
                    TC Kane next week is the plan!

                      Raz over Bruno
                      Then Raz->Son next week for dgw

                        Had Bruno from start and therefore so much £ locked in, if i wanted to get back i couldnt. Also, Bruno is set and forget for me. He is top point scorer for a reason.

                          live a little. Season nearly over. Try and improve your rank.
                          Easy to get anyone back. There is always someone to sell.
                          GL in any case.

                            besides, Raz in is 1 trade away from Bruno.

                        Not sure on DCL and would want Son in 32, rest looks solid

                          Thanks, I am unsure of DCL too. Might be worth changing him to say Vydra and upgrading a Mid to Son.
