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?

    So I’ve been reading loads of articles, checking social media, testing loads of stats and trying to second guess the psychology of the various managers and I still end up with the boring Bruno to Mane transfer. I was hoping to watch a film now. Do you think anything might change in the next couple of hours that might change this move? Does anyone know Bruno’s mum- could they check with her if he’s got his good boots with him or just his training pumps?

      Mane might fall down the stairs.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Lol. Yes that’s true. Anyone know Mane’s mum then?

          • 9 Years

          Lol

    2. Bedok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      That's the move I was going to make before realising I already had 3 Pool players and it would take a hit to get him in. I may take a chance on Auba or Pepe just to add some spice to the last game. I can't win my leagues anyway without a miracle, so might as well punt.

      1. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        It’s almost guaranteed that the popular choices will be outscored by someone unpredictable. Auba and Pepe are class players- well worth a punt.

    Shaw won't start.
    Greenwood will hopefully.
    Bruno I doubt it.

    Thoughts on team
    Mendy
    Dias Phillips Stujik
    Salah Fernandes Lingard Raphinha
    Kane Bamford Wood

    Forster; Son; Shaw; Coady

    Which trade should I do:
    A) Fernandes -> Mane
    B) Son and Coady -> Mane and Mitchell (-4)

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years

    Areola
    Castagne - Azpi - Dawson
    Salah - Mane - Lingard - Foden* - Pereira*
    Kane - Bamford

    Martinez - Vydra - Reguilon - Burn

    Hi all, already used my 2FT and have exactly 0.0 itb. Bit concerned about the rotation risks around Foden and Pereira, but my options from the bench aren't the worst in the world. Don't think Foden out for a hit is wise when he's 50:50 to start. Which of these options is worth a go? My main priority is holding a 5 point lead in my ML, opponent has five players in common with me (and has Dallas).

    A) Pereira > Willock for a -4
    B) Reguilon > Dallas for a -4, start over one of the other defenders
    C) No hits, just hope that they both play and have Vydra and/or Regui off the bench if they don't

  6. umerlfc
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Who to start?

    A) Holding - BHA(H)

    Is Dallas more likely to play in midfield or as a wingback today?

    1. DA Minnion (In Bielsa we tr…
      • 9 Years

      Midfield

    2. Shark Team

      you never know but he can easily haul no matter where he plays i think

    3. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Midfield I think.

    Castagnr or Dunk?

    1. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Castagne 100%

  12. KIRA
    • 2 Years

    What do u think of picking STERLING today ?

    1. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I think it’s too early for you to be drinking hard liquor

      1. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        It’s 6 o clock somewhere in the world. This is obviously sarcasm. Either that or the result of meths fumes

      2. KIRA
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        And it can't be after party

    2. DA Minnion (In Bielsa we tr…
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Has done nothing all season to warrant that pick.

      1. Jimmy Boy
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        To be fair, Mane has put up similar numbers and is one of the most popular picks this week.

  13. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    1)Sanchez or Martinez
    2) Dunk or Cresswell(-4)

  14. Lord Flashheart

      Would be sensible.

    3. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      What about Greenwood?

    4. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Would make sense ... there is just no reason for Man Utd risk the majority of players they want to start in the final.

    5. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Good chance Greenwood starts then

    6. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Paul Swenson just sounds like a made up name

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Paul Swenson died in 2017

        1. The Ilfordian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          A message from the afterlife

      2. dark91
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I saw the name being quoted but tried to search for him and indeed only found the one that died in 2017. Maybe this was his wish that Bruno and Cavani get benched

  16. Perthite
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Does the bench & order look ok?

    Martínez (Forster)
    TAA, Dallas, Shaw
    Greenwood, Son, Salah(TC), Lingard
    Bamford, Iheanacho, Kane(V)
    (Raphinha, Coufal, Godfrey)

    (assuming 2 FTs)
    Watkins->Bamford
    Ward-Prowse->Raphinha

    1. Ëð

      I'd start Raph over Greenwood

      1. Perthite
        • 10 Years

        I was trying to think of a way of getting him on.

        How about Coufal/Shaw?

    If your rival has Nacho and you’re 25 points ahead, would you:
    A) DCL to Nacho to cover that
    B) DCL to Bamford (just think more points here)

    1. Blue Moon Rising
      • 9 Years

      If you’re closely matched 11 vs 11, go for cover. If they’ve got 3/4 differentials, go with your instinct for points (which appears to be bamford

      True

      Madness to take any other sort of action, I’d agree.
