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?

    I am 9 pts behind in my ML and have 1 FT to hopefully overtake. Any suggestions?

    Meslier
    TAA Dallas Coufal
    Salah Son Mahrez Greenwood
    Kane DCL Antonio

    ML rival has Bamford, Raphinha, Lingard.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      9 points isn't much. Just play optimally. Captain Son. Replace DCL and take a hit for the goalie (Meslier won't play)

    2. The Desi Messi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Bench is Forster, Digne, Mitchell, ESR

    3. Bagpuss
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      who is your other keeper? Meslier won't start

    4. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Casilla playing in goal for Leeds

    5. Bedok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Meslier isn't going to play? Who's the backup? No idea what to tell you without seeing the other guy's team. "My rival has Bamford,..." w/o saying you have instead. He has Bamford and doesn't have..DCL?

    Arsenal avg positions and passmap vs. Palace - looks really bad for Auba! Pepe on the other hand... https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E18l_U8WUAYDola?format=jpg&name=large

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      If I was punting on an Arsenal player I would go for Pepe, he's been in much better form than Auba recently

  3. Fantabulous KdB
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Foden or Torres for final roll of the dice?

  4. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    I need a one week mega punt for Mahrez (or do I keep him?)

    It has to be someone that no one else will have and looking for 2+ goal involvements.

    A) Havertz
    B) Pulisic
    C) Martinelli
    D) Sterling
    E) KdB
    F) Torres
    G) Harrison

    Cannot be Mane, Raphinha, Foden, Fernandes.

    1. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Surely Harrison

    2. GOTHAM City F.C.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      E

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Considered Pepe? I'm interested in Havertz if he's fit to start too

    4. Bedok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Maybe just leave Mahrez, Harrison is the safest - not much of a punt. Martinelli is the biggest punt, right? Super low ownership, home game but may not start.

    5. AD2110
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I’d keep Mahrez if I had him. You not think he will start then?

  5. OptimusBlack
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Who To play ??
    A- Digne MCI (A)
    B- Dunk ARS (A)
    C- Konsa CHE (H)
    Or Sell one of them but already -4.

    1. Toughie
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B or maybe C, Brighton are really good defensively

    2. Mork calling Orson
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      A - please don’t take another hit.

  6. DangerFC

    Bamford a good differential Capt? Would expect opponent to go with salah

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Bamford good differential then

  7. tissae
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Play one:

    A) Bruno
    B) Nacho
    C) Greenwood
    D) Raphinha
    E) Bamford

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Defo play E & B

    2. Guru Mediation
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      That's insane b, d and e all have to start

    3. Il Capitano
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Crikey, E from thoae

      • Bedok
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        That makes no sense. You have to play at least two.

    4. McGalactico
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      In a sticky situation and find myself just 5 points ahead in the mini-league where my opponent's team looks much stronger for the final GW. Can see him making up the difference easily.

      Me, 1FT:
      Pickford
      Dallas - TAA - Castagne
      Salah - Lingard - Son - Greenwood
      Bamford - DCL - Watkins
      (Guaita - Zaha - Ward - Shaw)

      Rival, 1FT:
      Martinez
      Dallas - TAA - Nat Phillips
      Salah - Lingard - Raphina - ASM
      Bamford - Kane - Nacho
      (Fabianski - Bruno - Ward - Lowton)

      Open to suggestions and would appreciate opinions, but so far I’ve got:

      A) Zaha -> Willock (drop Greenwood / Watkins)
      B) Watkins -> Antonio (drop Zaha, hope Greenwood plays)
      C) Zaha + Watkins -> Willock + Firmino/Antonio (drop Greenwood and -4)

      I'm in urgent need of goalkeeping news. I have Dubravka and Peacock-F. Both may start; neither may start. I don't have spare cash so I can only sell Dubby - to Gillespie if he's deffo out, or to Randolph IF he starts.
      Have there been any updates re Dubby or Pope - or Fabby for that matter?

      1. FPL_Motty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Just play both and don't waste a transfer on a gk. Take a 0 if so, you can surely gain more pts making a more attacking transfer elsewhere in your team

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Seems a likely 6 points down the drain though. If the GK is secure I'd get in Reece James. Maybe should do anyway.

      Leading by 19 points

      Rival has Kane & Konsa
      I have Kane & Son

      Who to start?

      A. Martinez
      B. Areola

      I swapped them around 5 times probably in past 30 minutes

      1. Tinkermania

        Martinez will be busiest, so A

        • bros

          Thought I was set on this week's moves, but now second guessing myself. Best move is C right?

          1FT 1.4m ITB

          Martinez
          TAA Digne Shaw
          Son Lingard Salah Raphinha
          DCL Bamford Kane

          Fabri - ESR Targett Mitchell

          A) Targett/Shaw > Dallas (play Digne)

            BIG changes for United in the leak - IF TRUE though.

                2 months, 11 days ago

                Decent chance tbh, they got the Leicester team right I think

                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 11 days ago

                  Fair enough, probably looking at Bruno > Mane then

                At least the line-up seems sensible enough in itself, so fair enough to base decisions on. THere's always a risk of getting it wrong anyway

              Reasonable. Their final upfront will be Cavani, Bruno, Pogba and Rashford. Greenwood will sit bench and act as a x-factor and 2nd half push.

            Leading my mini league by 4 points. We have very similar teams but he has Bruno + Bamford, I have Lingard + will transfer out DCL for Bamford (3-4-3) or Zaha for Harrison/Willock/Pepe (3-5-2). I could get Bamford but then I’m gambling on Lingard +3 outscoring Bruno (or his replacement if he transfers). Thoughts?

                2 months, 11 days ago

                Man u most likely with B team, where bruno is benched. So dcl to bamford looks the best

              Really can't see Olé playing Bruno...why would he risk him in a nothing game when there is the chance of Europa League glory a few days later!
