This is a tournament that essentially gives Fantasy managers the chance to build a ‘Free Hit’ squad for nine specified upcoming Gameweek 8 matches:

HOW TO ENTER

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.

If a player in your team isn’t in the starting XI for their side, the ‘Safety Net’ feature will automatically be enabled – replacing that player with the next priced player from the same position and club.

Captains score double, as normal.

A full list of rules is found in the image below:

HOW DOES THE SCORING WORK?

FPL managers looking for a way to make their knowledge pay will have no trouble picking up this event, with its familiar scoring system.

Think of it as FPL without the bonus points, with a few other exceptions such as win/lose points and rewards for shots on target – these are detailed in the graphic below:

    Who do we think the surprise exclusion will be this weekend …… Moyes comments were … unhelpful?

  3. jackruet

    Rudiger is out confirmed?

    1. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Yes.

      1. jackruet

        What about raphinha

          Looks incredibly unlikely he will play but he hasn’t officially been ruled out. Logistically though, given he played 70 odd minutes this morning and flies back from Brazil and Leeds play tomorrow …. Seems a long, long shot ….. but maybe Beilsa pulls a shock … or he comes off the bench …. But the odds would suggest he certainly doesn’t start IMO

    Thinking about going KDB over Lukaku.

    Anyone else looking at something like that? Madness?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Doing that if all looks ok in the morning. Sub in for Rudiger. Have 5m in bank. Going Lukaku and Gilmour to Jimenez and De Bruyne.

      1. Pabster
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Cheers. Can't stand having City midfielders, can't stand not having City midfielders. Figure KDB is the most explosive and the relative safest. Have to take some risks.

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Exactly. Look to get De Bruyne before the curve moves upwards.

  5. Il Capitano
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 22 days ago

    1FT - 0.5m ITB - WC available

    Sanchez
    TAA White Livra Shaw
    Salah Jota Sarr
    Ronaldo Antonio ASM

    Steele - Raph* Gilmour Rudiger*

    A) Rudiger to Cancelo/Dias (would need a -4 to get a Chelsea defender back for NOR)
    B) Shaw to Laporte
    C) Save FT

  6. damiang2233

    Best Replacement for Coufal?

    1. Jannsen
    2. Pinnock
    3. Duffy (Have Sanchez in goals)
    4. Chalobah (Probably only short term so unsure)

    Thoughts?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      White or Tomiyasu.

      1. damiang2233
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Have White already!!

    2. Popcornharen
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      would do Duffy

  7. Michael Jordan - call me MJ
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Shaw -> Cancelo worth a -4?

    Very torn as over the next 4-5 weeks Cancelo is outscoring Shaw, he has a decent chance of a haul Vs Burnley, price is rising where Shaw is falling but always reluctant to take a -4 for a defender

  8. Dee Lixon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    I should start Livra over Raph right?

    1. mdm
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Right

      1. Dee Lixon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Gracias

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I am.

  9. gart888

    So I took James on wildcard a few weeks ago. Used a FT to transfer him to Rudiger last week. Now this.

    Awful move to take a hit to switch back to James and undo this whole fiasco?

    1. gart888
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I think it probably is a bad move. Here's my lineup this week with him benched.

      Sanchez
      TAA Cancelo White Livramento
      Salah Gray Jota
      Ronaldo Antonio Toney

      Raphinha Sissoko Rudiger

      1. mdm
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Save or Jota to Foden for me

        1. gart888
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Don't think I have the guts to play the Pep Roulette. Also think Jota is really good value. His hauls are gonna come with how many chances he's involved in.

  10. BobbyDoesNotLook
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    1ft

    A) Coufal (doubt) > Cancelo
    B) Tsimi > Livra
    C) Rudi > RJames or Azpi

    Sanchez
    Taa White Coufal (Rudi, Tsimi)
    Salah Benrahma Raph Sarr (Brownhill)
    Ronaldo Jimmy Antonio

  11. AF90
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    How long is Rudiger out for please?

    1. mdm
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      1 week

  12. Popcornharen
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Was planning to save FT, but now Jones knock - unknown return date... Also a bit unsure wether Alonso will start
    Any suggestions what to do with this lot?

    1 FT, 0,2 ITB

    Sanchez
    TAA Alonso Duffy
    Benrahma Salah Jones Raph
    Antonio Vardy Ron

    Foster - Marcal, Allan, Williams

    A. Roll transfer, play Allan instead of Jones
    B. Roll transfer, play Marcal instead of Jones
    C. Antonio and Jones --> Saka and ASM (will have 0.0 ITB after this)

    1. Popcornharen
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Heeelp

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      B

      1. Popcornharen
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Thanks, might be good idea

  13. swaino
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Any thoughts on WC
    Ramsdale (foster)
    Dias TAA Duffy (Livramento white)
    Salah Raph Gray Foden (brownhill)
    Aubameyang Lukaku Toney
    GTG?

    1. Popcornharen
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Vardy instead of Aub if you got the funds

  14. mr messi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Would you take a hit to do Gilmore to ESR in case Raphinha doesn’t play? I also have Alonso who’s not nailed but Marcal would come in for him.

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Will you have 11 players without selling Gilmour? He probably won't play despite a great international break but you'll lose a enabler.

    Team feels like a mess. Have not yet got around to sort out Torres. Bleeding value.

    Sanchez - Steele
    TAA - Rudiger* - White - Williams - Semedo
    Salah - Torres* - Sarr - Benrahma - Allan
    Ronaldo - Antonio - A. Armstrong

    Torres to whom?

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Boring option but let bench do the job, get Raphinha/Mbeumo for Torres next week.

      1. sirmorbach
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Agreed

  16. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Can I just settle this WC team and forget all about it?

    Ramsdale (Foster)
    TAA, Dias, Cancelo, Azpilicueta (Livramento)
    Salah, Son, Raphinha, Mbeumo (Bronwhill)
    Vardy, Antonio (4.5)

    1. Popcornharen
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      like it

      1. sirmorbach
        • 5 Years

        Thank you very much!

  17. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    A. Dias and fodder, 4-4-2
    B. Duffy first sub, Adam Armstrong (4-3-3)

    On Sky Fantasy there's a deadline each matchday rather than one for the week yes?
