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?

    Jota and Davis >>> Foden and Bamford/Iheanacho?

    1. Big Al Stankovic
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Rather Raphinha/Harrison and Bamford/Antonio/Wood

      1. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Why not Foden, do you think he won't play?

          Why do you think he will play?

            I reckon Pep plays his strongest team to keep them in 'rhythm' for the final, which is a week away. What do you think?

        2. Big Al Stankovic
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          I think it’s 50/50 at best. Would rather have a certain starter and a more probable scorer.

    Bench Boostin', 2 FT, zero ITB and the following players:
    Shaw, Fernandes, Jota

    Replace two (and which?), or take a hit to switch all?
    Mini-head-2-head league opponent also playing BB, and we're level on points 🙂

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

      Ditch shaw and Bruno for Robbo/pepe?

    2. Wee Jinky
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      take hit switch all

    3. tbos83
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Replace Fernandes and Jota - do not take a hit

    4. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • 9 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Which one do you like ?

          A Kane, Taylor (burnley)
          B Aguero, Cresswell

          1. Big Al Stankovic
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            A safe
            B explosive

        3. Perthite
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Look Good to go?
          Greenwood on bench may not be right

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

          1. RamboRN
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Similar team to mine with greenwood on the bench. Not sure who I would start him instead of though

          2. FPL ElasticO
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Wow you have TC left.... I would give it to Bamford (if you're chasing ranks or ML)
            Otherwise Salah is the safe option

            1. Perthite
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              2pts up in ML and a few thousand short of avoiding my 1st 100000+ ranking.

          3. Skloppy Kops
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Greenwood starting.. for sure.

          1. Big Al Stankovic
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Holding and Emi

          2. Skloppy Kops
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Shaw wont play.

        5. Harry Ball Bag™⚽⚽…
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Greenwood apparently starts (according to Twitter)

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

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

            Who tho?

            It's early for actual team sheets.

            1. Big Al Stankovic
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              The squad and staff probably got the Xl yesterday.

          2. Big Al Stankovic
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Looks legit. Cavani rash and Pogba in the front 3 on wednesday.

            1. injury_prone
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Phil Jones.....Probably the only person in the world to be jealous of Donny's game time.

          3. Pompel
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Seems reasonable

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

          Hey everyone, thanks for all the recommendations, but just like the final day last season I won’t have any team news pre deadline, too much at stake and the small factor they changed the deadline...

          wish you all good luck (except from my mini league rivals) you’ve got this.

          1. NULL-X-VOID
            • 7 Years

            This is Rockstar right?

            • 7 Years

            Fair enough - we have to make our own decisions ultimately
            Good luck!

          Anything better than Son & DCL -> Mane & Nacho here?

          Meslier
          Trent, Dallas, Coufal
          Salah, Son, Bale, Mahrez
          Antonio, Bamford, DCL

          Pickford, ESR, Digne, Mitchell

          1. Jimbo-Jones
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            I’d remove Bale and keep Son, and Wood is possible alternative to Nacho, but otherwise agree.

            1. Jinswick
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              See below - 5.9 available for DCL replacement if losing Bale, 6.3 if losing Son.

          2. Big Al Stankovic
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Sell Bale instead of son.
            Wood instead of Nacho.

            1. Jinswick
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Can’t afford Wood or Nacho if losing Bale instead of Son. Can only afford Nacho if losing Son.

        8. Mr Ozil
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Which combo scores more?

          A- DCL + Lingard
          B- Antonio + Vydra
          C- Antonio + Zaha

          B) Play ESR (BHA)

          1. Big Al Stankovic

              Mahrez or Foden if you need to be safe for starts, DCL if you wanna go all or nothing

              DCL to Antonio for free?

              Can’t decide if it’s worth it or not. Everton have got to go for it really.

                  Greenwood should start according to rumours, and team news section, so could you bench someone else?
