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?

    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

      no

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

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

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

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

  4. MARJE

    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

      • 9 Years

      Least transfers done maybe.

    3. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years

      Better looking one.

  5. tbhogal
    • 11 Years

    -8 crazy on the last day guys?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

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

      You go for it

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Depends if you think they’ll repay the 8 points

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

      Nothing is called crazy.. Anything could work well

  6. Thomas Magnum
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

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

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Go ahead

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

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

    3. SHOWSTOPPERRR
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days 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
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I'm chasing, and going for it.

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

        Caveat that, I have Son on bench as cover.

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

      Think I'd rather take a punt on Torres.

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

      Do it. A fitting tribute..

    7. Wee Jinky
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Fantasy has no time for nostalgia

  7. JoeSoap
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 11 days 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
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Bamford is probably the most popular pick there

  8. gomez123
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Anyone going TAA & Robbo??

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Got both from 3 weeks ago, hoping for 15 pints

      1. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        15 pints will sort you out

    2. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Me

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

        Hopefully this is correct, as I have Firmino and Salah

    4. gomez123
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

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

  9. giroudsgirlfriend
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Play Digne or Luke Thomas?

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Luke who?

      1. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Luke Thomas

        1. Max City
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

    2. Bedok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

  10. Ejaaz11

    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days 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
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Salah as Spurs are in poor form

    2. Nay08
        2 months, 11 days ago

        C salah and don't overthink it.

      • AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Mane too.

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

      • Ady87
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

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

      • The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Salah gets an extra point per goal.

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

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

        Salah at home 🙂

    3. Nay08
        2 months, 11 days 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
          2 months, 11 days ago

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

          A easy

          1. Nay08
              2 months, 11 days ago

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

        2. Maeki2
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 11 days 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
            2 months, 11 days ago

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

            Bench son

          2. Nay08
              2 months, 11 days ago

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

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

            A Son to Mané or
            B DCL to Firmino

            1. Ady87
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

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

              1. Max City
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 11 days ago

                Sounds good

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

              B has more upside

          4. BilalM
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

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

            Any chance he starts?

            1. Scots Gooner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 11 days 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.

          5. Cancelo Culture
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            One last question...

            Which one would you play with Antonio?

            A) Coufal
            B) Lingard

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

              Play the attacker

          6. Jimmy Boy
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            M.Pereira owners wyd with him?

            1. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

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

            2. Etern007
                2 months, 11 days 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...

            3. AC Yew
              • 2 Years

              Dallas or Pool defender?

              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?

                I’d be looking at Shaw to TAA

                Going for Lingard myself, with the awful away form for the Saints

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

              Cheers in advance

              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

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

                I think Greenwood

              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.

                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.
