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.

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. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  9. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Best Captain pick of rival will TC Salah? Chasing 12pts. Do I just also Captain Salah and pray? Not sure how to play it?

    Rival will TC Salah with 12pt lead. Best move? Got 2FTs.

    Mendy
    TAA. Holding. Rudiger
    Salah. Son. Greenwood. Jota. ASM
    Kane. Antonio
    (Forster. DCL. Digne. Ward)

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No you need to captain someone different and pray

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Best pick? Get Mane? Or get Leeds and Captain Bamford/Raph?

        1. Cojones of Destiny
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          get Mane and C him plus one of bam or raph whoever isn’t in his team

        2. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          You're probably better at this than me. 12 points in one game week with them having TC is a lot so you need to get a couple of players he does have and captain one of them IMO, either way if Salah scores it's game over.

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

    • 8 Years

    Left myself a bit of a dog of a team for GW38. 18 points ahead in mini-league, Happy to -4 to get more player on pitch...

    Martinez
    Dallas, TAA, Mitchell
    Salah[c], Lingard, Bruno, StMax
    Kane, Antonio, DCL

    McCarthy, Gundo, Maguire[x], Coleman[x]
    Bruno -> Mane leaves me only 4.6 to transfer Maguire -> Chambers[?] to replace Mitchell

    Any better options for..

    a) Upgrade elsewhere and hope Mitchell plays
    b) 4.6 max price defender

    Thanks in advance : )

    Who should I bring in for Bruno -4?

    Have 3 Liverpool players already so can be be Mane which is looking the popular alternative.

    I have Siggy first sub so he goes in if Bruno doesn’t

    1. paulfantham
      • 10 Years

      Mount, Pulisic, Mahrez?

    Mahrez Foden DCL Targett

    ESR on the bench.
    Have 2 FT's. Who would replace out of those 4.

  16. Martial Matas
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Leading ML by 26pts. What are priorities with 2ft?

    A) minimise diffs with rival
    B) go in with full bench
    C) guarantee a playing keeper (ie Casilla to go with Meslier)

    2. g40steve

    "Leaked Man Utd Team.

    'Leaked' United XI vs Wolves
    As always, this is only a 'leaked' line up so might not be spot on - but we've seen plenty of them turn out correctly already this season.

    Yes, that is Phil Jones.

    Leaked XI vs Wolves: Henderson; Williams, Bailly, Jones, Telles; Matic, Van de Beek, Mata; Amad, Greenwood, Elanga.

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Phil Jones maximum bonus would really be a throwback.

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

        Had to check, he is not even in the squad list for a transfer. Probably would have been a 4m.

  18. Bobby_Baggio
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    G2G or take a -4 somewhere? Cheers.

    Meslier
    Coufal - Phillips - Alioski
    Willock(VC) - Salah(C) - Raph - Greenwood - Mane

  20. The Ilfordian
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Starting 3 Hammers (Cresswell, Lingz, Antonio) is mad right?

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

      Not at all

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

        Cheers. I’d only realised that i was planning this. The stats for Antonio are better than Bamford so leaning towards that move

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

    For the last time this season, moves made. Done.

    Good luck, everyone!

    I’ll be back on here later, and then it will be time for an FPL detox!

      Greenwood

  23. Bartowski
    • 10 Years

    Do we think Fernandes will be on the bench or given the day off entirely?

    1. mcsteely
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Digne for attacking threat

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

        I’d got them the other way round. Maybe time to rethink

      2. SHOWSTOPPERRR
        • 3 Years

        Reguilon for goals on his own net though

    Would you take a hit to go DCL to Antonio, to block off a rivals differential in a ML? Sitting on a 22 point gap.

    1. Gooner Kebab
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes
