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?

  3. RyanMK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Bottomed.

    McCarthy
    Coufal - Dallas - Digne
    Salah - Lingard - Greenwood - Son
    Antonio - Kane - Bamford

    Guiata - El Ghazi - Shaw - Mitchell

    Have 2.2 ITB. Anything worth a -4 hit? Have already used my FT.

    1. Wee Jinky
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      no

    2. Noob
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      I'm hovering over Digne to Tierney/Robertson as a -4

      1. andymck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 9 hours ago

        Hits for defenders in the last gw doesn't feel good tbh

  4. MARJE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    If top two ML opponents end on the same score, how does FPL work out who is displayed in ML 1st place? Thanks.

    1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      The one with less transfers

    2. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Least transfers done maybe.

    3. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Better looking one.

  5. tbhogal
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    -8 crazy on the last day guys?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Crazy is relative, to some going out without a face mask is ‘crazy’

      You go for it

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Depends if you think they’ll repay the 8 points

    3. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Nothing is called crazy.. Anything could work well

  6. Thomas Magnum
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Sorry if already discussed but Aguero C one last time anyone?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Go ahead

    2. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Not if you've got something to play for. Game time an issue

    3. SHOWSTOPPERRR
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      No. Plenty of other options, and eve good on the road.And Aguero is not that aguero we used to know.

    4. Burger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      I'm chasing, and going for it.

      1. Burger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 9 hours ago

        Caveat that, I have Son on bench as cover.

    5. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Think I'd rather take a punt on Torres.

    6. Bedok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Do it. A fitting tribute..

    7. Wee Jinky
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Fantasy has no time for nostalgia

  7. JoeSoap
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Any preference for free? Any 2 you would do for a hit?

    A. DCL>Bamford
    B. DCL/Antonio
    C. Digne>Dallas
    D. Greenwood>Willock/Raphina
    E. JWP>Willock/Raphina

    Mendy
    TAA, Holding, Digne
    Lingard, Salah, Greenwood, Son
    DCL, Kane, Nacho
    Forster JWP, Coady, Mitchell

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Bamford is probably the most popular pick there

  8. gomez123
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Anyone going TAA & Robbo??

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Got both from 3 weeks ago, hoping for 15 pints

      1. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 9 hours ago

        15 pints will sort you out

    2. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Me

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      I have both but I think the midfield double up has more upside this week

      1. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 9 hours ago

        Hopefully this is correct, as I have Firmino and Salah

    4. gomez123
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      I've got Salah(c) so think having both will be a good idea

  9. giroudsgirlfriend
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Play Digne or Luke Thomas?

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Luke who?

      1. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 9 hours ago

        Luke Thomas

        1. Max City
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 9 hours ago

          Thanks!

    2. Bedok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Luke.

  10. Ejaaz11
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Who to captain Salah or Kane?
    both have outstanding records against there opponents.
    both going for the golden boot

    1. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Salah as Spurs are in poor form

    2. Nay08
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      C salah and don't overthink it.

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Mane too.

      I'm going captain on TAA and Cavani out for Aguero.

    4. Ady87
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Kane was terrible last time out, Liverpool in form and hungry. Salah and it’s not close.

    5. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Salah gets an extra point per goal.

      1. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 9 hours ago

        And a clean sheet point.

    6. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Salah at home 🙂

  11. Nay08
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Thinking of transferring out Son for someone as a differential from my rival.
    any suggestion?
    already have Salah, Mane, Lingard, Raphinha.

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Willock? Or Pepe

  12. estheblessed
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    G2G? Thanks for all the help this season!

    Johnstone
    Konsa, Rudiger, TAA
    Mane(c), Raphina, Salah, Lingardinho
    Nacho, Bamford, Kane

    Martinez, Greenwood, Veltman, holgate

    1. Ady87
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Looks good, GL.

  13. Ady87
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Looking for some quick advice.

    Pope
    Dallas Philipps Dias
    Salah(c) Son Lingard Raphina
    Kane Bamford Nacho

    Subs: Johnstone Coufal Greenwood Stones

    Transfer:

    A) Dias > TAA (rival has TAA/Robbo)
    B) Something else? If so what?

    1. Croaker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      A easy

      1. Nay08
        4 months, 9 hours ago

        easy A. but depends on how many points between you and your rival and how many other differential from him that you have

  14. Maeki2
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Leading two ML:s by 30p

    Worth digne, traore -> robertsson, willoc -4

    If so who to bench of watkins, DCL, greenwood, Son

    1. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      I wouldn’t bother with the point hit as you are clear already

      Bench son

    2. Nay08
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      30 point lead? well, then you're in a good seat. no need to take a hit.

  15. Jimmers
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    A Son to Mané or
    B DCL to Firmino

    1. Ady87
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Prefer B, Leicester v Spurs could end up any score.

      1. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 9 hours ago

        Sounds good

    2. Croaker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      B has more upside

  16. BilalM
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Would anyone do
    Bruno -> Ferran Torres for a hit?

    Any chance he starts?

    1. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Wait and see if there are any leaks or rumors prior to deadline.

      If it looks like he's play (I think he will) it will be worth the punt.

  17. Mr Bird
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    One last question...

    Which one would you play with Antonio?

    A) Coufal
    B) Lingard

    1. Croaker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Play the attacker

  18. Jimmy Boy
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    M.Pereira owners wyd with him?

    1. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      Sell as he won’t be starting by the looks of it

    2. Etern007
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      So I have Greenwood. I'm thinking of starting Pereira as, if he does play, I think he'll get more points. Greenwood is first sub though, if he doesn't make it.

      That's what I was thinking...

  19. AC Yew
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Dallas or Pool defender?

    1. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
      • 11 Years

    Guys do me a favour...make an educated guess what move my rival will make. I'm leading our cash league, just 9 points ahead of him. He has 1ft and 3.2itb. He hasn't taken a hit all season so I think he'll only make 1 transfer. He can't bring Bamford as he has 3 Leeds. Maybe Son to Mane?

    2. Croaker

      I’d be looking at Shaw to TAA

  26. Guru Mediation
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Who would you go with:
    A) Greenwood (stick with)
    B) Bamford (transfer in for minus 4)

    Cheers in advance

  27. aardvark22

    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Have 2FT and 0.7ITB
    What's best move from?

    A) Bruno, DCL to Kane, Raph (have Son, Bamford)
    B) DCL, Siggy to Iheanacho, Raph
    C) Bruno, DCL to Iheancho, Auba

    1. Croaker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      B. Don’t like A as you have Son. C could be OK.

  28. Aaa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Start DCL or Greenwood?

    1. Guru Mediation
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 9 hours ago

      I think Greenwood

  29. diesel001
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Always love the Tuesday after the final GW of the FPL season. Dust has settled on the season and this place becomes a dead zone.

  30. Etern007
    4 months, 9 hours ago

    Risk starting Pereira? I can put Greenwood first sub if he doesn't play, but think he might get more points if he does...

    a) Yes, that's a brilliant idea
    b) Are you crazy? No. Leave Greenwood in.
