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?

    Would you get rid of Lingard or Greenwood, knowing your rival has both? Bringing in Mané as a differential because I’m trailing.

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      I'd do Lingard to Mane

      1. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        Are we thinking Greenwood starts?

        1. Hulk Smash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 4 hours ago

          I hope so! I think he has to.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      For free yes. Reckon Greenie will start.

      1. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        Which one to get rid of then? Lingard?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 4 hours ago

          Yes, Jessie

    3. ILOVEBAPS
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      I’m not that big a fan of JLingz form recently so might punt him for Mané.

    4. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Greenwood to Mane as if greenwood starts he will do so alongside the reserves in a meaningless game

      1. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        That’s a good point.

  2. JAYPEE
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    1. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2. The Ilfordian

      • 3 Years

      Wood for me. I’ve had him in my team for weeks planning for this match

    3. Dr Ennet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Wood

  3. RooneyforLife
    • 8 Years

    Best replacement for Bale ?

    A.Mount
    B. Pepe

    D. Lingard

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      C

    2. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Willock or pepe

    3. ILOVEBAPS
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Why get rid?

      1. RooneyforLife
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        Bcoz there is uncertainty over his start bcoz of injury issues

        1. ILOVEBAPS
          • 9 Years
          5 months, 4 hours ago

          Oh I hadn’t heard that. I guess Willock

  4. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    DCL to Antonio for a hit? Have Lingz.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Depends. probably not.

    2. TVPlugSockets
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Yeah deciding the same thing

      Have Lingard so I may not bother.

  5. Dr Ennet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    Good Afternoon!

    Leading my ML by 5 points. My team as it is now:

    Martinez
    Dallas / TAA / Coufal
    Salah / Raphina / Lingard / Son
    Kane / Nacho / Bamford

    Subs: Bruno / Shaw / Coady

    Is it worth it to do Bruno > Mané for a -4 and bench Son?

    Cheers! 🙂

    1. cigan
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      I'd do it and bench Lingard

      1. Dr Ennet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        Cheers for you input!

    2. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Not IMO. I’m doing the same transfer but for free. Having TAA and Salah is decent cover.

      1. Dr Ennet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        Thank you! 🙂

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years

      Not that I know of!

    2. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      United possible leak on previous page.

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Just a speculated Man Utd XI

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        Thanks all

    4. xHaTr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Henderson; Williams, Bailly, Jones, Telles; Matic, Van de Beek, Mata; Amad, Greenwood, Elanga.

      Source: MEN

  7. Perthite
    • 11 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    Bench ok or do I squeeze Greenwood onto field?

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

    1. Bedok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Maybe Greenwood over Son as Greenwood is likely to play up front. But fine to leave him first sub as GW38 can have a lot of rotation.

  8. fish66
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    (a) Shaw -> Dallas
    (b) DCL -> Bamford
    (c) both for -4

    1. ILOVEBAPS
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      A

  9. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    Any other reliable source than Rockstar? That City Lineup could be a lot helpful.

  10. Jimmy Boy
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    Start Martinez or Areola?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Double figure saves for Marti today

    2. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Martinez

  11. b91jh
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    I think I'm going into an overthink state after considering players like McNeil, Diallo and Fornals...

  12. Teomi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    Behind with 5 points in my league...
    Any of these worth to bring in for a -4?

    A. Robbo
    B. Mount
    C. Iheanacho
    D. Just play Zaha/R pereira and save

    1. mcsteely
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Robbo is worth it if your rival doesn't have him I reckon

    2. Bobby_Baggio
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      D don't take hit when it's that close. Choose capt well and you'll be fine

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Then you'll be 9 behind

  13. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    Not gonna be able to look at my phone until 3pm now, am I G2G? Blocking a ML lead with Kane Bamford Greenwood Lingard Dallas TAA so need to start them.

    Henderson
    TAA Dallas Coufal
    Salah Son Greenwood Lingard
    Kane Bamford Iheanacho
    Lloris Pereira Shaw Ward

    My transfer was DCL to Bamford for free.

    Leicester v Tottenham will be 0-0 BTW.

  14. Bobby_Baggio
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    Captain vote up please? Chasing 25 points.

    A) Salah
    B) Mane
    C) Antonio

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      C best if chasing imo but obviously unlikely to work

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        Cheers thinking Mane as most will go salah

    2. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      B no doubt, could actually work

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        Thinking that

  15. mcsteely
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    DCL to Antonio for a hit? Would be to block ML rival who is 22 points back

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Nah

  16. LIARS POKER
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    Digne to Robertson for a hit? To double up with TAA

    1. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Not for a hit

    2. tbos83
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        Considering this or Dallas

    3. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Assuming rumours of Greenwood starting are correct,
      bench one

      A) Greenwood
      B) Lingard

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        Play both

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 4 hours ago

          Nah, want three up top

      2. smix

        What are the rumours?

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 4 hours ago

          LEak/speculated line-up on previous page:

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

          Seems reasonable enough

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

        B
        Greeny 16 shots in the box in the last 6 vs. Lingard just 4

          • 7 Years
          5 months, 4 hours ago

          West Ham got something to play for though, and at home.
          United fielding a B team, match of no importance, Greenwood will not get the same service

    4. klopp2567
