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?

  2. chelseabrad

    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??

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

      Looks spot on and strong. Good luck!

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

    Start one:
    A) Digne
    B) Coady

    I’m on Digne at the moment, in the hope of an attacking return against a City team who’ve been leaky recently.

    Mendy
    TAA Digne Holding
    Salah Bruno (will be Mane) Foden Raphinha Lingard
    Kane DCL

    Forster Watkins Coady Masuaku

    Thanks!

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

      I think Coady might be a decent pick against a dodgy Man U lineup. Who knows though, Digne could be assisting DCL’s hatty

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

        That would put me in dreamland!

    2. Perthite
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Digne I think

      1. PascalCygan
        • 3 Years

    1. PascalCygan

    2. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  10. Mr. O'Connell
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Greenwood and Auba + 4 points

  11. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Chasing down 6 points- both of us will captain Salah and have TAA but he also has Firmino- which third Liverpool player should I get

    A Son to Mané
    B Digne to Robertson

    1. DK_13
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A looks like the popular move this week, but I like B better

    2. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B I think. I'm expecting goals galore spurs leicester

    3. DF
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I'd captain trent in your shoes and do b

  12. DK_13
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Play
    A) Greenwood (even if he plays, everyone around him is a fringe player, so not sure he will get an attacking return)

    B) castagne (lei need to win, but kane chasing golden boot)

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I would still start Greenwood.

      1. DK_13
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

    Llorente > Dallas
    Jota > Willock

    -8 pts

    Yes or no?

    1. Perthite
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

    2. Croaker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Just the Jota and Bruno moves for free

  17. Mind över Mata
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    1. DK_13
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yep

    Mendy
    Trent - Rudiger - Coufal
    Salah (c) - Son - Mane - Raphina - Son
    Kane - Bamford

    Bench: Forster - Vydra - Veltman - Coleman

    Allison
    TAA-Coufal-Dallas
    Salah-Lingard-Raph-Son
    Antonio-Bamford-Kane
    (Forster-Gundo-Holding-Shaw)

    Martinez-Bruno-Vydra > Allison-Lingard-Bamford

  24. Bonny Scott
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Pick one...

    A) Play DCL
    B) Sell for Firmino
    C) Sell for Woods

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

      If it’s for free, B or C, maybe C just

    2. StellaMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I'd be tempted for a roll of the dice on Wood if isn't for a hit

  25. PascalCygan
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    If you heard Bruno was starting (no suggestion either way), would you still bring Mane in for him?

    1. RoryzonderR
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Definitely 'yes', Mane above Bruno

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

        Cool, thanks

  26. Weilong7
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Best captain? Salah?

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

      That’s what I’d say

  27. Muscout
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Thoughts appreciated!

    Martinez
    TAA Rud Dallas
    Salah (c) Greenwood Lingard Willock
    Kane Watkins DCL

    McCarthy Zaha Shaw Dier

    2.8itb, 1 FT, 25 points ahead in ML

    A) DCL to Bamf
    B) DCL to Nacho (rival has him)

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

      Just A for me.

  28. YEAH PITCH!
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    A) Mane Raph
    B) Salah Willock

    1. No Kane No Gain
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B if leading, A chasing.

      But B overall.

  29. The punt of no returns
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Start DCL (3-4-3) or JWP (3-5-2)?
    OR transfer JWP to Raphinha OR DCL to Bamford for a -4 hit?

    Context: Comfortably ahead by over 30 pts in my ML

    1. MightyGar
        2 months, 1 day ago

        DCL

      What are my fellow Mahrez owners doing this week?

      My hunch is that he won't feature. Either way, I currently have him first on bench as per the below - would you change anything?

      Areola
      TAA - Dallas - Rudiger
      Salah - Son - Lingard - Greenwood
      Kane - Nacho - Bamford

      Martinez / Mahrez - Digne - Veltman*
