Scout’s Gameweek 38 picks for FanTeam’s €30k Season Finale Frenzy

One Gameweek.

One FPL-style game with easy-to-follow rules.

One ‘Free Hit’-style selection with a deadline that allows you to see the teamsheets.

And one final chance in 2020/21 for Fantasy managers to put their skills and know-how to good use and win up to €10,000 (£9,000 in UK money) with FanTeam.

And you can get involved in the Gameweek 38 extravaganza for just €5/£4.50, with prizes awarded all the way down to 3,449th place.

Given that there are only 1,700 entrants at the time of writing, the odds of prospering look favourable.

ENTER YOUR TEAM AHEAD OF THE SUNDAY DEADLINE

HOW TO PLAY: A BRIEF GUIDE

Slightly different from the usual squad-based games, FanTeam managers are given a budget of €105m to build a team of 11 players that includes at least one goalkeeper, three defenders, two midfielders and one forward.

A maximum of three players are allowed from one club and captains score double points, as usual.

Here are some other minor differences to FPL in the otherwise easy-to-play game:

  • There is no bench or manual substitutes; instead, there is a ‘Safety Net’ feature. If a player in your Fantasy team isn’t in the starting XI for their side, they will automatically be substituted for the next priced player from the same position and club.
  • A ‘Stacking Penalty’ is given if you have two or more defensive players from the same club and they keep a clean sheet. One point is deducted for each additional asset that you select from the same side.

HOW DOES THE SCORING WORK?

FPL managers looking for a way to make their knowledge pay will have no trouble picking up FanTeam‘s Gameweek 38 Season Final Frenzy, with its familiar scoring system.

Think of it as FPL without the bonus points, with a few other exceptions – detailed in the graphic above.

SCOUT PICKS

Doubling or tripling up on defenders from the same club is a common tactic in Daily Fantasy Sports, such is the difficulty in predicting one or two clean sheets let alone four of five.

But we’ve made life hard for ourselves by mixing it up, with the cut-price appeal of Luke Ayling (he’s £1.4m cheaper than Stuart Dallas) too good to overlook.

The set-piece threat of Alex Telles could also be a boon against a Wolves side who love to concede from corners and free-kicks, while Martin Dubravka will be up against a Fulham attack that has scored just two goals in their last eight home games.

Double-ups on Leeds and Liverpool are fairly self-explanatory, while Joe Willock‘s record of six goals in as many matches and appealing fixtures for Michail Antonio and Chris Wood sees that trio make the cut.

To afford the big guns like Mohamed Salah, Raphinha and Trent Alexander-Arnold, we’ll need a bargain or two.

Enter Jack Grealish, whose ‘unfavourable’ fixture against Chelsea sees him available at a bargain-bin £6.1m. He looked lively in midweek and Villa were way more potent in attack thanks to his presence, so there could be some late-season joy to be had as he pushes for Euro 2020 contention.

The final word goes to Harry Kane, who is cheaper than 15 other FanTeam forwards this week. His low price is because he faces Leicester City away but given his individual record against the Foxes and his push for a Golden Boot (not to mention Leicester’s ropey home record), who would put a final-day haul past him?

      Not great for either. Maybe check the betting odds and go with that. Aside from that, it can't be good when you need to choose from those two.

  10. Nay08
    4 months, 4 days ago

    so I am thinking of transferring out Son. but which one is better?
    I'm chasing 28 points. and wanna do this as a differential form rival

    1. Mahrez
    roulette risk but Pep said that he wants to play their best team

    2. Pepe
    Good fixture and somewhat good form as well

    3. Rashford
    big risk of rotation but can deliver big if play

    4. any other suggestion?

    1. injury_prone
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Pepe. Was going to get him for a hit for Greenwood but hoping leak is true and GW starts.

    2. Sun Jihai

        1. The 12th Man
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          That’s a headache and a half.
          Probably Lingard due to form.

          1. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

    Bruno, Shaw or Jota

    1. Pep's Money Laundry

    Why are ppl going for Raphina over Harrison?

    1. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      More likely to get a gol

    2. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Been more creative than Harrison for most the season when fit, very key to Leeds attack

    3. Lucky Z
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Better player

  19. Arfaish
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    Think of taking a hit for Bruno, Shaw > Mane, Alioski

    I’m chasing by 15 so I could keep it simple with no hit and do Bruno > Willock/Mount/Torres?

    A) Bruno, Shaw > Mane, Alioski -4
    B) Bruno > Mount/Willock/Torres

    Odds have moved in favour of Wolves so that MAnU team.leak must be right....

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      I have Greenwood. Is he worth starting if he's got such a weak lineup behind him? ASM wants to know.

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        It's a tough one to call. I would go ASM

      What was the leaked team?

      1. injury_prone
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Leaked XI vs Wolves: Henderson; Williams, Bailly, Jones, Telles; Matic, Van de Beek, Mata; Amad, Greenwood, Elanga.

        1. injury_prone
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          Manchester Evening News posted it too but said not confirmed.

      2. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Not common knowledge (gossip) yet? Okay, wait for someone else to leak. No idea if it's at all reliable anyway.

        1. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          I don't know if its reliable but the fact odds moved significantly in favour of Wolves is clear

    4. Bonus magnet

  28. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Son -> Mané worth a -4?

    1. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Nope

  29. potatoace

    4 months, 4 days ago

    I have to bench one of these.

    A. Lingard
    B. Mahrez
    C. Raphina
    D. Son.

    1. Gizzachance
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      B

  30. LLoris
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 4 days ago

    How confident are we that Bruno is not going to play?

    1. injury_prone
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      As confident as him starting the final.
