HOW DOES FANTASY5 WORK?

Fantasy Five Banner

Fantasy5 is easy to play as it follows the exact same scoring system as FPL, just without the bonus points.

It’s also the fastest media outlet for live Fantasy points, displaying all player points from the five games in question, as well as the live score and time.

For the more detailed lowdown, head here.

The competition is limited to one entry per person per round and selections must be submitted before kick-off of the first eligible match.

If two or more entrants correctly select five players who all score more than their points target, then the prize pot is split among all winners.

GAMEWEEK 2 FIXTURES

The five matches in this round of fixtures are:

  • Leeds United v Everton
  • Brighton and Hove Albion v Watford
  • Southampton v Manchester United
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers v Tottenham Hotspur
  • Chelsea v Arsenal

The deadline is at 15:00 GMT on Saturday, August 21.

SCOUT’S GAMEWEEK 2 PICKS

  1. Richarlison: A second-half switch to a central role against Southampton transformed Richarlison and Everton’s fortunes in Gameweek 1. Much has been made of Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s potential for prospering in a side that seems intent on crossing at will but the Brazilian is pretty handy in air, too. He’ll be up against a Leeds side that displayed a soft underbelly at Old Trafford, conceding more chances from central positions than any other side in the division.
  2. Ismaila Sarr: The Watford winger was among the top three midfielders for both chances created and penalty area touches in Gameweek 1, also having three shots of his own in the win over Aston Villa. Brighton aren’t quite at their watertight best just yet thanks to a pre-season filled with departures, injuries and illness, and the sight of Pascal Gross at left-back underscored that uncertainty at the back.
  3. Mason Greenwood: Classified as a midfielder in Fantasy5 this week, Greenwood needs a goal and assist to beat his points target in Gameweek 2. Southampton’s defence is the worst in the Premier League in 2021 and let’s not forget what happened the last time these two sides met in February…
  4. Lucas Moura: With Harry Kane’s match fitness seemingly still an issue, Spurs look set to line up with the same front three that prospered against Manchester City on Sunday. The Brazilian really impressed against the reigning champions, registering three goal attempts and as many key passes. A Wolves defence playing a high line looks an ideal match-up for the Lilywhites’ fast-breaking attacking trio.
  5. Romelu Lukaku: Backing the big Belgian to hit the ground running with two goals is a tall order but the new Chelsea number nine’s track record for early-season form is eye-catching. Arsenal’s rickety high defensive line – should they trial it again – looks ready-made for the former Inter Milan striker’s predatory instincts.

TED’S GAMEWEEK 2 PICKS

Pick the best Gameweek 2 players for a free chance to win £10k with Fantasy5

  1. Dominic Calvert-Lewin: Rafael Benitez’s intentions were made clear in GW1; get the ball to DCL! Everton are up against a Leeds side that were one of the worst teams for shots conceded last season and are licking their wounds after a five-goal thrashing from Man Utd.
  2. Jakub Moder: Third amongst midfielders for expected assists (xA) and eighth for expected goal involvement (xGI) in Gameweek 1, Moder definitely has some attacking threat. A first home game for Brighton this season against a newly promoted Watford side will surely yield a positive result.
  3. Jadon Sancho: Sancho has the lowest target out of the main Manchester United outfielders and faces a Saints side who desperately need reinforcements. This will most likely be Sancho’s first start for his new club and he will be keen to make an impression.
  4. Sergio Reguilon: Spurs kept a clean sheet in Gameweek 1 against arguably the most attacking side in the league and will look to replicate that feat against Wolves in Gameweek 2. Reguilon certainly has some assist potential, too.
  5. Kai Havertz: Havertz ended last season well for Chelsea and had a successful EURO 2020 campaign, picking up a few goals. He’ll be looking to continue this run of form against Arsenal in Gameweek 2 after his seven-minute Gameweek 1 cameo (due to a two-hour Super Cup run-around last Wednesday).

    Sean Dyche being Sean Dyche when asked about any potential signings arriving at Turf Moor: "We were close to Messi. We were disappointed we lost that one and he referenced he'd love to have come here. Ronaldo is apparently sniffing but apart from that we'll see what options come available to us. Lewandowski didn't say he was coming to us, the other two did." 😀 😀 😀

      Very respectful towards Burnley fans... Must be a nightmare supporting the club wishing for signings and ownership couldn't care less. Do enough to stay in the prem, make money, rinse and repeat

        Indeed, Dyche really is a miracle worker

        And that is coming from an Arsenal fan, must really be a nightmare.

    I got Havertz and Barnes.
    Should I consider moving one of them for a United or City player due to fixtures?

    Greenwood?
    Mahrez?

    1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Havertz for sure.
      Keep Barnes until gw 3 at least.
      Leicester looked very good v Wolves

      1. tomasjj
        • 7 Years

        Thank you!

    2. Turmoil

      I got rid of Havertz and Mane for Son, Fernandez but had money in the bank and regretting it now.for a minus 8 stick to your guns mate might need your transfers later on think he might do ok against Arsenal, Barnes has some good fixtures too.

    3. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Havertz is tempting, down to fixtures.
      I think he will become tops this year though.

      Might leave it for a few weeks, or make sure I get him back when the fixtures turn for Chelsea,
