Fantasy Football Scout and Sky Sports Fantasy Football to join forces in 2021/22

Fantasy Football Scout are delighted to be partnering with Sky Sports Fantasy Football this season and bringing you even more content on the popular, free-to-enter game.

The site is open for registration for 2021/22, so you can head over there now and begin picking your team – or teams plural, as Sky allows you to manage a second XI.

A whopping £50,000 is on offer to the game’s winner next season, with cash prizes of £5,000 and £1,000 dished out to those managers finishing in the other two podium places.

The fourth and fifth-placed managers are awarded games consoles, as are the highest-scoring Fantasy bosses of the month.

SCOUT’S 2021/22 COVERAGE

We’re delighted to welcome aboard Niall Murphy to our Pro Pundit team, who will be joining Luke Williams in fronting our Sky coverage this season.

Niall has a best-ever Sky Sports Fantasy placing of 3rd in 2016/17 and is a serial top 100 finisher.

Resident maverick Luke can boast a 4th-placed finish in Sky, along with some stellar seasons in a number of other Fantasy formats.

We’ll have lots of articles to come before the new campaign starts, focusing on everything from player prices and team reveals to longer-term strategies.

We’ll also continue to provide features and tips throughout 2021/22 once the action gets underway.

In the meantime, head over to our Premium Members Area to see which players will potentially benefit from the Sky Sports bonus on offer for saves, tackles, passes and shots on target.

HOW DO I PLAY?

Just like in Fantasy Premier League, managers select a team of players that will either earn attacking, defensive or bonus points in an attempt to score more than friends, colleagues and/or the rest of the world.

However, this is not a squad-based game: you simply choose a starting XI and do not have a bench.

We have already produced a beginner’s guide which delves deeper into the rules and scoring system – this can be accessed by clicking below.

          Pep really going all out for Kane/Grealish, the former I understand but the latter is not worth losing either.

      DAILY EXPRESS

      Arsenal are reportedly interested in a double swoop for Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez as Manchester City consider selling the wingers in the summer transfer window.

      Hahahahahahahahaahahaha

    Villa will have some squad if they can hold all their players

    Could they push on and get top 6 this season ?

        It’s 7.15 and I’ve just ordered a pizza, if I start drinking I can see myself having triple Norwich by midnight

      I really hope not, I know far too many Villa fans to be comfortable with them having any success.

  3. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years

    Cantwell benched

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years

      Ah, the Cantwell memories a few seasons ago.

  4. Inazuma X1

    Dowell goal

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      See this happening as he has one year left on his contract. Apparently he's looking for a place in Manchester

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Think he'd be the same 5.5 as Shaw, AWB and Maguire.

    3. Stupendous
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Who does he replace? Shaw or AWB?

      1. Stupendous
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Or he plays behind/in front of, one of them in a 3/5/2 5/3/2?

      2. Inazuma X1
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Can cover both positions but he's a RB

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          He'd be a super option and be great for attacking points

        2. Stupendous
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Thought he was a rb ok. Ta

  5. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    RIP all those people who wanted to punt on Mahrez

    1. Moxon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      If Pep is willing to sell Mahrez and Sterling as part of a way to get Grealish I'll just punt on him.

      The article posted above is from May 29th and the sources are the Daily Express and Daily Mail. Not even worth reading.

        The part about Arsenal made me burst out laughing.

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

    1. BrockLanders

      Sounds fairly close

  7. Stupendous
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    A few questions here folks....

    1. DCL or Bam

    2. Buendia or Sarr

    3. AWB or Shaw

          Do you already have Raphinha? If not, I would take him over Sarr/Buendia.

          1. Stupendous
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Sanchez

              • 7 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              Nice. I would say go DCL over Bam if you have Raphinha cover. Not sure about Leeds up front double up. Cheers mate!

  8. Inazuma X1

    Who do you think are your 'sexiest' picks?

    1. Stupendous
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Depends on the definition of sexiest.

      1. Moxon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        High risk high reward.

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I really like buendia and Wilson in my team atm

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Gilmour & Manquillo. Nailed on in my team too.

      1. Moxon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        that's a nice team tbf, 433 is really flexible too

  11. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    This is the one!

    Meslier 4
    Trent Robbo Digne Shaw 4.5
    Salah Bruno Rafa Buendia 4.5
    Bamford Toney 4.5

  12. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Can't decide between Digne or Cresswell - who'd you pick and why?

    1. CAVEAT KING
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Between those, Cresswell because a wait and see with Everton. (New manager, poor form) Coufal would be my choice at .5 less.

  13. DAZZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Sanchez
    TAA AWB Digne
    Salah Bruno Mahrez Raphina ESR
    Toney Watkins
    (Foster, Lamptey, Ayling, Obefemi)

    Thoughts? I like the look of this.

  14. LangerznMash
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Just had my first look on FPL and I'm very surprised at some of the seemingly generous player pricings.
    Ones that immediately stood out to me as underpriced are:
    Sanchez (£4.5) - scored over a hundred points in only 27 games. Brighton usually play a back 5 and also 2 defensive mids... Expect 15+ clean sheets for him.
    Tierney + Doherty (£5.0) for their potential attacking output alone. If they play as wingbacks this season then these too are ridiculously underpriced.
    Digne (£5.5) I find it strange that his price has dropped when he scored the same in less minutes played.
    Jota (£7.5) listed as a mid when he will certainly play a forward role in one of the best attacking teams in the league. Regardless of rotation risk he should be around £9.0m.
    Pepe (£7.5) you may LOL at this one but he scored 8 goals in his last 13 starts. If this is the same form for the start of the coming season then he has to be considered as a value asset and he may also have added set piece and penalty duties
    DCL (£8.0) 16 goals and 6 assists in 33 matches... unless something ugly is going on at Everton that I don't know about, DCL should be challenging for the golden boot and should be priced similar to Son at £10.0m.
    Obafemi (£4.5) the standout super-budget forward for me, especially if Ings leaves. Rumours of him being sold apparently squashed by Ralf who is impressed with him since coming back from injury.

    This is just my initial view, i'm sure I will find more when I look into more detail.

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      You reckon Ings will leave?

      1. LangerznMash
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Well he rejected their contract extension offer so only has a year remaining. Saints either sell now of lose him for free next summer.
        Skybet have him at 6/4 to sign for Spurs.

        1. The 12th Man
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Surely Saints will sign another striker if Ings leaves?

          1. LangerznMash
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            You'd expect so but Ralp plays two up front and Obefemi appears to be #3 in the pecking order so expect him to get a fair amount of minutes. This pick would be more for people who don't play 3 forwards in game but would like there 3rd spot sub to still offer a little something.

    2. The 12th Man
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      and Reguilion

      1. LangerznMash
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Yup, 6 assists in his first season and will probably only get better.

    3. Zen Arcade
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      If DCL gets within five goals of the top scorer I’ll be amazed.

  15. The 12th Man
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Looks like Everton will be signing…
    Asmir Bergovic on a free for backup to Pickford.

  16. CAVEAT KING
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Raphina or Harrison?
    Buendia or Grealish?
    Torres, Foden or Mahrez?
    Mbeumo or Toney?
    Kane or Son?
    Coufal or Cresswell?
    King , Sarr or Welbeck?
    Wadkins, Antonio, Nacho or ?
