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?

      Looks fine, you could swap Rudiger & Holding but it’s a coin toss

      1. Mr Ozil
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Holding might be benched to Luiz in all cases

    3. Super Saints

      -4 and still playing DCL?

  3. Fodderx4

    iI'd appreciate any advice here, struggling with who to bench.
    Currently on:

    Mendy (Pickford)
    Coufal TAA VC Robbo (Digne, Holding)
    Mahrez Son Lingard Salah C (Greenwood)
    Nacho Antonio Bamford

    Correct bench?

  4. paulfantham

    Mount or Pulisic?

    1. paulfantham

      Or Mahrez

      Vydra has a better game, Siggy is a better player. I understand the dilemma. Not sure how you ended up with both but go with Vydra?

      1. Phlajo
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Didn't get to offload any 🙂

        I'd play Vydra if I knew he was starting, but not really sure about that.

        Cheers anyway all 🙂

    So apparently 80% of this years current top10k have never previously finished in the top 10k. And 45% of current top100k never previously finished in top100k. What does this mean you reckon? Luck or normal statistical variance? Or a weird season?

    1. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Means that 50% is down to luck

      Strange stat. Thankfully I am one of the 20 percent.

    3. mynameisq
      • 7 Years

      What are these stats compared to the past 5 years?

      Doesn't say much alone

    4. Wee Jinky
      • 9 Years

      It means I am one of the 20% 🙂

      The tweet in question. Yeah would be nice to know what it's like in previous years. I think this year is probably more abnormal.

    7. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      People up near the top got on Kane/Son and certain picks that were scorned here as "casual" picks (e.g. Bamford, Justin, Cresswell) early, and then have maintained their leads.

      If the early template is good next year, then it should become more normal.

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

        I get what you're saying but from my experience watching managers in my leagues. I've seen many who got lucky in the early season with kane and son but did not maintain their position from maybe a lack of experience. I've also seen many experienced managers miss out of those points, starting at 2m+ and clawing back top100k, top 10k. There was some huge swings initially but alot have evened out of the course of the season

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

        Personally though it's been a tough one for me, I feel I missed out on every major haul so being top100k still I'm really happy. I missed kane and son in the beginning, I missed kanes 22pts, I missed stones huge haul, I never really hit any major haul this yr but just kept it ticking over

    Martinez
    Taa, Dallas shaw
    Salah, son, mahrez, Greenwood, esr
    Antonio, Watkins

    (Fabri, digne, Mitchell, dcl)

    £3.1m itb

    4 points clear of my mini league for £280

    1ft

    Do I double Liverpool defence to match 2nd place (he has Phillips, Williams) so go Robbo?

    -4 for a Leeds attacker? Any help much appreciated.... sweating here!!

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

      I'd probably out DCL at least first otb maybe play over watkins

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

        So just dcl to bamford?
        Or -4 for digne to Robbo?

    2. DA Minnion (In Bielsa we tr…
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Don't see shaw playing to be honest.

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

      Watkins -> Bamford/Wood/NAcho
      Play Digne over Shaw (who probably won't play anyway)

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

      Double Liverpool defense = yes -4pts = no plus move DCL to first sub

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

        That’s what I’m think - digne to Robbo for my Ft,

        No -4 for bamford?

  8. cjk17

    Top of my league by 9 points and 2 free transfers to use...

    Any advice on how to improve this appreciated?

    Mendy
    Phillips, Holding, Shaw, Stones
    Bruno, Salah, Lingard,
    Ihneanacho, Kane, Watkins,

    Subs: Jota, Zaha, Digne

    1. jonnybhoy

      Digne, watkins and jota to TAA, Bamford and Raphina

    2. Disco Stu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Keane, Phillips, Shaw, Holding
    Salah(c), Lingard, Bruno
    Kane, Bamford, DCL
    (Areola, Zaha, Konsa, Podence)

    Pretty set on Keane > Dallas & DCL > Antonio/Wood with my 2FT

    Take out Bruno or Shaw as well for a hit? For who? Ralph? Mane?
    And who would you prefer for DCL? Wood or Antonio?

    Defending ML lead of 10 points only Both have most of the usual suspect and will probably captain Salah. Differentials are:

    Me:
    Phillips Lingard/(Greenwood) DCL
    Rival: Fofana Mané Joelinton

    Really fear a Mané haul, but not in position to get him (got three Pool). 1 FT, won't take a hit, so looking at either moving Greenwood for a mid or DCL for a striker

    A) DCL -> Bamford (got Dallas and Raphina)
    B) DCL -> Nacho
    C) DCL -> Wood
    E) Greenwood -> Mount
    F) Greenwood -> Harrison
    G) other?

    Agree or would you swap Holding for either of the above?

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Holding Digne and Shaw are probably all 1 point options at best tbh. I'm playing holding and hoping my lucky run of goals from cheap defenders somehow continues.

      thinking of transferring out Son. but which one is better?
      I'm chasing 28 points. and wanna do this as a differential form rival

      1. Mahrez
      roulette risk but Pep said that he wants to play their best team

      2. Pepe
      Good fixture and somewhat good form as well

      3. Rashford
      big risk of rotation but can deliver big if play

      4. any other suggestion?

      Start Digne or Rudiger? Playing Mendy also.

        Split the risk of a Watkins G?

          Could do. Chasing 12pts so double defence could work nice. Hmm
