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?

    Rival will TC Salah with 12pt lead.
    Best move?

    A. Kane+Jota >> Mane(C)+Bamford
    B. Greenwood+Jota >> Raph(C)+Harrison
    C. DCL+Jota >> Bamford(C)+Raph
    D. B+C combined

    Mendy

    Salah. Son. Greenwood. Jota. ASM
    Kane. Antonio

    1. Big Hands Barry

      2 months, 5 days ago

      C

    2. PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      A but C close behind. Good luck!

  4. fcsaltyballs
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    If they were both starting, who would be the best transfer in:

    1. Raphinha
    2. Torres

    ??

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      1

    2. Biggsy
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      2 if nailed on starting. But I think that's not guaranteed enough so would prefer 1 in reality

    3. ZAMUNDA
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      1

  5. Gringo Kid
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Bruno to

    A) Son
    B) City mid
    C) Anyone up to 11.1

    Thanks

    1. Biggsy
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      B but don't ask me which one

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Harrison/Raphinha?

    3. ZAMUNDA
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Mount - Pépé - Raphinha or even Westwood

  6. Biggsy
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Last check. As Forster might not start and Meslier won't, would you:

    A. Meslier & DCL to Alisson and Wood (play Bruno)
    B. Bruno & DCL to Mane and Wood (play Forster)

    It's b, right?

    1. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      B

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

      B

    3. chelseabrad
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Meslier & Bruno > Alisson & Salah/Mane

      1. Biggsy
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Good suggestion but have Salah and Trent so couldn't get Mane and Alisson and couldn't see anyone as a better choice than Mane hence not an option.

        Just pulled trigger on B

  7. Rep Poulette
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Pick one:

    A) Robbo
    B) Mane
    C) Firmino

    1. Biggsy
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      B

    2. BERGKOP
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      B

  8. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Thoughts on Bruno to Sterling?

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Sterling is a player who is so so so out of form

    2. Biggsy
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Out of form, may not start. It's punty...

  9. TheDragon
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    DCL will get a 10+ pointer won’t he?

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Let's hope so

    2. Mr Ozil
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      that's what am counting on

    3. JBG
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Ofc he will an Bamford who I'm getting in for him will get 1p.

    4. PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I’m hoping for that!

    5. AMBELLINA PRISE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Yeah no chance, he's awful

  10. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Final question::

    Play Rudiger or Digne?

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Rudiger for me

    2. Biggsy
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Rudiger for me (and what I'm doing in same situation)

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Cheers all and GL!

    4. ZAMUNDA
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Rudiger

  11. Red dev
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Bit confused on best option here. Any opinions appreciated!
      Have bruno who probabaly wont play. 1 FT. Which option is best?
      A. Bruno to Harrison/Pepe. I have raph and dallas. Play DCL
      B. DCL to Antonio/Bamford and then I would play Digne

      1. chelseabrad
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Bruno to Salah/Mane?

        1. Red dev
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Thanks! Got salah cant afford mane

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

          A because I think Everton are more likely to score than keep a clean sheet

          1. Red dev
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Yeh I was thinking the same just worried about not owning bamford for this game

        3. Salarrivederci
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Gtg? No hits taken and 0.0 ITB.

          Areola
          TAA - Dallas - Cresswell
          Salah - Mané - Son - Foden
          Richarlison - Iheanacho - Watkins

          (Martínez, Gündogan, Reguilón, Targett)

          1. TheDragon
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            I’d start Gundogan over Watkins (if you think Gundo starts)

            1. Salarrivederci
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              I don't 😀

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

            Gtg

        4. Perthite
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Any chance that we will have any news before lockout?

          Or just do the trades now?

          1. Van der Faart
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Go with the gut

          2. Biggsy
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            I mean, why would this week be any different? Yes there is a chance, but how reliable will it be?

        5. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Unexpected player most likely to explode?

          1. Keeptrying
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Hopefully DCL

          2. TheDragon
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Brewster

            But more seriously - No one has even mentioned Vardy

            1. Biggsy
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              I can see Vardy slicing spurs open. For me Mane and Wood should top Vardy and a cheaper mid (have Harrison, Lingard can't get Raph) for my moves

          3. Tinkermania
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 5 days ago

            The match could be stopped if that happened. Avoid such a player.

          4. Bavarian
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            TAA

            1. TheDragon
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              That’s wouldn’t be unexpected! Everyone owns him

          5. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            traore

          6. Free Hat
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Digne

            1. The Ilfordian
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              That would be a mixed blessing sitting second on my bench (after Lindelol for a possible start due to cb issues)

              1. Free Hat
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Ive started him, but other option is Shaw so
                Im hoping for a Dallas special from Digne.

        6. Van der Faart
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Chasing.

            I’d start Iheanacho, our (spurs) defence is a shambles

          11 pts ahead of my ML rival but he has bench boost

          Alisson
          TAA AWB Coufal
          Salah Son Lingard Raph
          Kane Wood Antonio

          (Forster Greenwood Holding Coleman)

          He has 2 villa def, Dallas, Gundogan, Bruno over Greenwood, Bale over Son, Bamford, DCL & Nacho all of which I don't have...

          Already made my transfer, anything worth taking a hit for? Bench & order right?

          Fernandes, Watkins -> Mane/KDB and Bamford -4?

            Bruno —> mane sufficient

          A) Bamford + ESR first sub
          B) Raphinha + DCL first sub

          Have Greenwood so sub not unimportant.

          1. Big Al Stankovic

          Csn we risk that Jota starts ahead of Mane?

            Almost impossible that happens

            I don't think they can play someone out for the season. Better with 10 men.

          3. Big Al Stankovic
            • 9 Years

            Doubt it. Jota most likely subbed in as an impact player, if he’s even in the squad.
