Exclusive free FanTeam event for Fantasy Football Scout users in Gameweek 8


Sponsored by FanTeam


FanTeam are teaming up with Fantasy Football Scout to launch an exclusive free event for readers of this site in Gameweek 8.

The FFS Monster tournament takes place this weekend, with the deadline at 15:00 BST on Saturday, and there is £500-worth of cash prizes on offer:

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:

GAMEWEEK 8 WEEKLY MONSTER

For those Fantasy managers looking for an even bigger prize pool, FanTeam have £42k Weekly Monster event running simultaneously in Gameweek 8.

The rules and scoring system are the same as above, with entries costing £10.08.

    Please rate this wc team.

    Ramsdale
    TAA, Dias, Azpilicueta
    Salah, mbeumo, Raphinha, Grealish/foden
    Toney, Antonio, Lukaku

    Foster, Duffy, Livramento, 4.5 mid

    0.6 itb

    Can't decide on the man city midfield slot. Any suggestions welcome.

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Foden for me

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Foden v nice

    3. ArseneAllTheWay
      • 8 Years

      G2G

    4. Saosin
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      City is tricky, think Foden will get rested this GW (obv POMA).

  2. DannyDrinkVodka

    I've got Alonso and Rudiger and 1 FT......madness to do Rudiger to Chilwell?

    1. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Why not go James then?

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Mostly because I want to be sure one of my Chelsea defenders starts

        1. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          But then you play the one who sits on bench irl and the other one gets a 15 pointer but your guy comes on for a 1 pointer cameo blocking the 15 pointer on bench.

    2. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I mean... Alonso + Chilwell guarantees at least one starter...

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Haha, exactly!

  3. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Can I roll a transfer?

    Sa
    AWB TAA Livra
    Salah(c) Bruno Raph Gray
    Ings Antonio Jiminez

    Foster Gilmour Amartey Rudi

    0itb 1ft

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Yes, if you think Rudi is out for one week, but Man City defence i would transfer, as Raph will be out again in GW12 in all probability

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I'd have to get Walker or Laporte in that case because of money.

        Walker safer pick?

        1. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Laporte is a better FPL player, but i can't guess Pep Roulette 🙂

  4. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Anyone capping non-Salah player?? Who??

    1. mgilbert86
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Was flirting with cancelo only because of early kickoff but couldnt keep it on him

    2. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Son…maybe. Will decide last minute.

    3. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Nope. The only player I think could be a better captain this week is Mahrez and I don't want to own him in the season game because his place is immediately at risk from Jesus next week.

      But I am captaining Mahrez in one of my FanTeams and in the weekly monsters to scratch that itch.

    4. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Maybe KDB

  5. Reckoner.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Brought James in for Rudiger, for now.

    Between him and Christensen for me I think, 0.1m short for Azpi.

    Need to have a play and see what the extra money gives me if I go Christensen.

  6. Flynny
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Hi...my wildcard team is below. Given I have a couple of risks for the weekend (James and maybe cancelo) who would you give the final place to?

    A....raphinha (risk cameo or no show)

    B.....saka and get raph next week or week after

    Ramsdale
    Taa cancelo james (Duffy Livra )
    Salah son xxx mbuemo (brownhill )
    Lukaku antonio hwang

    Thanks

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      A

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      A

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Thanks

    3. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Same WC team here. I'm playing Duffy v Nor over either Raph or Mbeumo. I'm leaning Raph bench

      A for me

  7. Little Red Lacazette
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    0FT, 1.2ITB.

    How does this look? Would you use WC?

    Sanchez
    TAA White Livramento
    Salah(C) Jota Greenwood Sarr
    Jimenez Lukaku Antonio

    Steele Brownhill Rudiger* Amartey

    1. ZakyJ
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      no need to wildcard

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Tough. Greenwood rotation. Jota may play or a Cameo, Sarr has the worst fixtures (starting now), but the rest is solid

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        My WC would have both Dias & Cancelo, Raphinha and Sarr out.

  8. Arteta
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Will Stones play tomorrow?

    Pep: "Maybe. We will decide today. John Stones was so important for us last season, he played so well alongside Ruben. Aymer played a lot of minutes but not regularly. This season Aymer played incredibly well alongside Ruben, it's fair to let him play. John is an exceptional guy and knows the situation. I'm delighted he played well for the national time, this is why we extend the contract for the next years. He will be so important."

    1. Arteta
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Dias is undroppable to be fair.

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      So... Laporte is risky?

    3. ElliotJHP
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Sounds like he wont

    4. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I don’t even want to try to understand Pep talk. He often does the opposite of what he says.

    5. Nomar
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Minefield

  9. Echoes
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Pick one each(on a WC):

    1. Gray
    2. ESR

    A: Rudiger(Livra 1st bench)
    B: Christensen
    C: James

    Y: TAA
    Z: Cancelo

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      2 C Y

    WC'd in GW7. 0.1 ITB

    Last-minute i tried to do Benrahma to Luiz but failed but oddly came back as Jiminez as captain!! 🙂

    Ramsdale (Foster)
    Rudiger, Azpi, Cancelo, Dias (Livra)
    Saka, Gallagher, Raphinha, Salah, Benrahma
    Lukaku, Antonio, Jiminez.

    A) TAA and Benrahma from Rudiger and Brownhill (Europa rotation)
    B) TAA and Raphinha from Rudiger and Brownhill (Brazil may play 3 times again next ITB against Argentina)
    C) Hold and play Livra

    I will go Azpi to James if nailed next week, and Jiminez to Toney for funding in Son in the next few weeks) Best laid plans and all that without injuries lol

  11. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Bottomed, lads, and I *really* could use some help here. Boils down to this:

    Ramsdale (Foster)
    TAA / Cancelo / Azpilicueta / _______ / (Livramento)
    Salah / Raphinha / _______ / _______ (Bronwhill)
    Lukaku, Antonio, Toney

    A. 4-3-3: Dias + Zaha, Mbeumo first sub
    B. 3-4-3: Foden + Saka, Duffy first sub
    C. 4-3-3: Dias + Saka, Gallagher first sub

    Leaning towards A or C really.

    1. jason_ni
      • 5 Years

      Prob b from those options.

      1. sirmorbach
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Cheers. If I may: decent, you reckon? Or back to the drawing board?

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      B or C if you want to double up on Man City

      1. sirmorbach
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Cheers!

    3. ArseneAllTheWay

  12. DAZZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Can bench Rudiger for Livramento. Still left with Raph Jota and Traore 0.6 ITB 1FT, best transfer here? Can also do Rudi > Cancelo but seems silly considering i can play Livra

  13. ZakyJ
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    1FT & 0.4m ITB

    Sanchez
    Alonso Semedo White Livra (Amartey)
    Salah Jota Raph* Benrhama (Brownhill)
    CR7 Lukaku (Toney)

    A) Hold
    B) Jota>Foden (no Man city players currently)

    if I took a -8 hit but now decide to use the free hit does it cancel out the -8?

    1. Reckoner.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Yes

    2. Arteta

    Thoughts on this team? Quite a few flags!

    Ramsdale
    Cash - Alonso - Cancelo - Veltman
    Benrahma - Salah (c) - Smith Rowe
    Antonio (v) - Lukaku - Jiminez

    (Foster - Raphinha - Rudiger - Sarr)

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I like it

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Looks good. I'd hold, nice bench, or Rudi out if you think it is longer than a week

  16. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Livra on pens then??

  17. gogs67
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Looking at that Man U defence Vardy (c) is very tempting

      1. Arteta
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Same can be said about leaky Leicester and (C)ristiano.

        1. gogs67
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I haven't had Ronaldo in my team so that's not an option.
            But yeh, Leicester defence is c**p, definitely worth targeting

      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Best move? 1FT, 0.4itb.

        A. Shaw/Rudi+Ronaldo >> Cancelo+Lukaku (-4)?

        B. Shaw/Rudi >> James/Laporte

        C. Save FT.

        Sanchez
        Rüdiger*. TAA. White
        Salah. Mount. Raph*. Sarr
        Ronaldo. Antonio. ASM
        (Foster, Shaw, Livramento, Gilmour)

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            James or Laporte?

            1. Crunchie
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Laporte for Shaw, James for Rudi 🙂

              1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                Worth a hit?

                1. Crunchie
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  No, If you think Rudi is out one GW, then transfer out Shaw for Laporte. if you a doubtful then Rudi for James.

                  That's the safest play i can come up with but could still backfire with Pepe rotation???

                  1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 19 days ago

                    Yeah, thanks. Might just save and get Cancelo next week

            2. Hulk Smash
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Laporte

      3. Pukkipartyy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Sarr -> Mount worth -4?

        1. ArseneAllTheWay
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I’d say so

        2. Debauchy
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          iffy move , go gut

      4. Hulk Smash
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        A - Azpi
        B - Dias

        Other defenders are TAA, Cancelo, Duffy and Livramento.

        1. CRO KLOPP
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          A

        2. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Of those 2, Dias.

          But I'm going James. I want a Chelsea defender for this next run of games and willing to risk it.

        3. ArseneAllTheWay
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          A

      5. Jimmy Boy
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Need to bring in a defender this GW in order to field three. With Rudiger and (probably) Thiago Silva both out, surely that leaves Azpi, Christensen and Chalobah as the near guaranteed back three?
        Is B.Williams > Chalobah a sensible transfer?

        1. Jimmy Boy
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Can't afford either of the other two by the way

        2. ArseneAllTheWay
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Good for one week maybe

          1. Jimmy Boy
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I'm tempted to just do Rudiger > Dias instead for the Dias Cancelo double up, as there's no clear timescale on Rudi's return and Dias is a far superior long-term option

        3. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I wouldn't bother getting Chelsea defender for one GW.

      6. ArseneAllTheWay
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        RMWC

        Ramsdale (Foster)
        TAA, Cancelo, James (Liv, Duffy)
        Salah, Son, Mbuemo, Townsend, Raph
        Antonio, Lukaku (4.5)

        Toyed with Foden but can’t be arsed for Pep roulette

        Thoughts?

        1. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Good to go.

          Townsend over a 3rd striker slot is an interesting choice.

          1. ArseneAllTheWay
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Not fussed with the 3rd striker options - Jiminez is okay, Mbuemo is better value than Toney and don’t want double up. Hwang - meh.

            1. Crunchie
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              I like it. I think Toney's class will come through over Mbemo in the easier fixtures

      7. ViperStripes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Play Semedo vs AVL
        Bench 1 Gallagher vs ARS
        Bench 2 Livra vs LEE
        Bench 3 Sarr vs LIV

        Right bench order? (I have Alonso so high chance Bench will be needed)

          I’d bench Semedo and play those others.

            Me too

            So bench 1 play 3 - unfortunately that's not how FPL works.

              Gallagher, Bench Livra, Semedo, Sarr

        Still can’t decide who to replace Torres with (£7.1m to play with) out of

        A) Townsend
        B) Saka
        C) Zaha/Gallagher

        Could take a hit and get Mount, but trying to stay away from hits this term.

          B

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          B

            Or Gallagher if you want mount next week?

        For the next 3 GWs
        A. Foden
        B. Grealish
        C. Mahrez

        Last advices for WC please:

        Ramsdale Foster
        Taa Azpi Cancelo Livra Duffy
        Salah Son Raph Townsend Mbeumo
        Antonio Lukaku Davis

        (To start 2: raph, mbeumo, duffy, livra))

          If this is your WC, I prefer Veltman to Duffy. The flexibility to play RWB, RB or CB could be valuable. I was burned by my non-playing forward in GW1-7 (Perica); if you can downgrade one of your budget midfielders and bring in Hwang/Dennis it might pay off

        Anyone else very uninspired by Azpi at 6.1, can’t bring myself to spend that much for a 6 point defender

          6 PPM is good.

            Not when you’ve got 5.5 mids hauling

        Folks, what should I do here ?

        A) Rudiger to James or someone else
        B) Save ft

        Ramsdale
        Cancelo Christenson Livramento
        Salah Gallagher Raphinia Saka
        Kane Lukaku Antonio

        Foster DLuiz Rudiger Williams

      13. KieranKA

        What do you think of my WC?

        Sánchez (Foster)
        Trent, Cancelo, Azpilicueta (Veltman, Livramento)
        Salah, Mount, Raphinha, Doucoure (Brownhill)
        Lukaku, Antonio, Toney

        £0.3m in the bank. I'll probably start Veltman in GW8 but I want Raphinha long-term.
