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:

    Defense is
    TAA Rudiger White Shaw Livramento

    Would you do Rudiger Shaw to Cancelo Christensen -4?

    Can't get Cancelo with 1ft

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

      -4 on def is almost never worth it. Just get Cancelo.

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        He said he can’t.

    2. Won't sleep till after…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I have roughly the same dilemma. I'm choosing to play Shaw and forget Cancelo for this week. Then I'll bring Cancelo in for free as part of 2 FTs next week.

      1. DagheMunegu
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        That would mean playing livra too as I have Raphina

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

    Asking for a friend. Is it crazy to take -8 to get Dias + Cancelo. Rudi has to go (no bench)

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Why not just replace a bench player/other member of your squad.

      Rudiger has Norwich and other good fixtures next.

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

        Want to jump on City Def and the problem is that no date for Rudis return?

  3. Dynamic Duos
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    What to do here? So many options. 1.5itb 1ft

    Sanchez
    TAA Cancelo Livramento Marcal
    Salah(c) Saka Gray
    Lukaku Antonio Jimenez

    Foster Raph Rudiger* Sissoko

    A) Rudiger to James
    B) Rudiger to Laporte
    C) Rudiger to Dias
    D) Rudiger to Azpi
    E) save

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

      C

    2. KieranKA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Depends on your instincts. Azpi/James if you want to spread the risk, Laporte/Dias if you're super confident about City.

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

        This A or C

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

    Damn Danny Rose against Salah is hard to ignore but.......................Sissoko will end up pocketing Salah

  5. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Sanchez
    Christensen / TAA / Coady*
    Salah / Raphinha / Sarr / Traore*
    Antonio / Jimenez / Ronaldo*

    Steele / White / Livramento / Allan

    Coady/Traore/Ronaldo to Cancelo/Foden/Lukaku for - 8?

    Yay or nay?

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

      Nay

    2. KieranKA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Nay. Maybe Traore to Mbeumo/Doucouré/Townsend/Harrison?

      1. KieranKA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Saka if you have the funds

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

      Leicester defence in tatters. Selling Ronaldo this week as part of a -8 could be a big error. Get rid of Traore and play White ahead of Coady maybe.

  6. Athletic Nasherbo
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Wildcard. Thoughts?

    Ramsdale
    Cancelo Dias Cucurella Duffy
    Salah(C) Son Mahrez Saka Townsend
    Lukaku

    Raya Toney Livramento Davis

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

      2 Brighton is an overload

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

    Bench one:

    A) Benrahma
    B) Sarr

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

      Or C) ESR

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

      Sarr

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

    My final decision.

    Mbeumo or ESR?

    I have Toney already.

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

      Prefer the double up to ESR

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

        ESR literally couldn't have done any more to audition for my team this past fortnight. Scored and got MotM for the U21s. Whole article from Arsenal about his hunger for goals and success.

        It's making it tough to ditch. I also have 0.1m banked on him not that it should matter that much for my final decision.

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

          Will probably get Mbeumo or ESR for Gray in GW10.

    2. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Mbuemo

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

      M

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

      ESR

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

      Tough one, but Mbeumo is more nailed on

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

        I actually don't know if that's true... I don't think Mbeumo is as nailed as people make out. Wissa has been very good and was signed just this summer.

        Mbeumo's more explosive for sure, but with worse fixtures over the short term? Weird one.

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

      Mbeumo, my thing with ESR is not personal to him, but arsenal don’t create enough big chance/ aren’t clinical

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

      I prefer Toney to Mbeumo long term especially against Weaker sides. On pens and is a classier player .

      So I would go ESR as he has good fixtures too

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

    Current defence:
    Cancelo - White - Rudiger* - Tsimikas* - Williams*

    Need to make a change in order to field three this week. Which transfer is better in the medium term?
    A) Rudiger > Dias - City double-up
    B) Williams > Duffy - Hope that Rudiger comes back for GW9

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

      Tsim > Duffy

      You might need that Liverpool slot.

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

        Did consider but I do feel like with Williams no longer even a starter Tsimikas is more likely to come in with the odd clean sheet, even as second-choice

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

          The chance you'll need a Liverpool slot is higher than your 3rd sub coming on and you'll miss all the random Tsim cameos because he'll be rotting anyway.

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

      B

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

    Thoughts on Walker instead of Cancelo to allow Hwang instead of 4.5 fodder?

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

      Depends on rest of depth/set up

      Personally don't like a 5.5 attacker option on the bench, always want them involved.

      I'd stick Cancelo

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

        Thank you!

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

        This

  11. lilmessipran
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Is rudiger expected to miss only this GW or is it a longer term injury?

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

      I wonder if this increases James' odds with Azpi requiered in the back 3?

      1. Clay Davis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Most likely revert to a 4-4-2 I think with Azpi, Chabolah, Christensen, Chilwell. Werner and Lukaku up top

        1. Silecro
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Tuchel almost never plays 4 at the back, he only makes variations with 352 or 343, something like Conte. I can see James and Azpi start both, regardless if Rudi is injured or not

          1. Clay Davis
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            True, but he did play 4-2-3-1 against Leeds last season when Silva was out

      2. Silecro
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        As a Chelsea fan, i can say you that healthy James would start at RWB regardless of Rudiger injury. Azpi would also regardless start at RCB

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      We don't know, TT didn't say

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

      Not disclosed, impossible to say

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

    Dias or Cancello?

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

      Cancelo

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

      C

    3. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years

      Dias

  13. Clay Davis
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    What do you think of this Wildcard draft...

    Ramsdale
    Cancelo, Laporte, Azpilicueta
    Salah, KDB, Son, Townsend
    Antonio, Armstrong

    Foster, Livramento, Toney, Brownhill

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

      Like it quite a lot actually, you're making me think of going without Rom

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Looks great honestly, you forgot a defender though

  14. Bertonian
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Bottomed!

    Chaps

    Start 2 of these & bench order for other 2

    A Alonso
    B Livra
    C Benny
    D Raph

  15. john25
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Hey guys, Grealish or Foden for the next few GWs? Whose more nailed on for this GW?

    Cheers

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

      Grealish more nailed
      Foden more upside.

  16. FantasyHero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    With Curtis Jones injured as well, looks like jota chances of starting just went up?

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

    Anything worth a hit? 0.8 ITB

    Cancelo Dias Alonso James
    Salah(c) Sarr ESR
    Lukaku Antonio Jimenez

    Benrahma Livramento Raphinha

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

      Ramsdale Forster in goal

  18. focaccia
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Will Alonso play this week?

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

      nobody knows

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

    Which one?

    A) Keep FT
    B) Greenwood out
    C) Rudi Greenwood to RJames Foden -4

    Going C), would have to bench someone from Raphinha, Sarr, Duffy

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

      A

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

      A

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

      I think C is great going forward.

  20. SKENG
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Was set on saving this week but not sure it's a good idea with injuries & weak bench.

    1 FT, 0 ITB

    Ramsdale
    Cancelo Azpi Livramento
    Salah Son RAPHINHA Harrion
    Lukaku Antonio Jimenez

    Foster WILLIAMS Brownhill RUDIGER

    A) Save FT (Raphinha likely 1 point)
    B) Rudiger > James
    C) Antonio & Rudiger > Pukki & TAA (-4)
    D) smth else?

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

      A

  21. Champions League Varane
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    1ft any suggestions please!? 0ITB
    Thanks.

    Sa
    Semedo Trent Livra Christensen
    Salah Gallagher Raph
    Lukaku Ronaldo Antonio.

    Steer D.Luiz Sissoko Williams.

    1. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Easy save.

    2. gart888
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      You've kind of backed yourself into a corner with so many premiums and no money ITB. I'd probably roll the transfer. 2 will be way more useful than 1 for you.

      1. Champions League Varane
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Thanks both!

  22. gart888

    1 month, 19 days ago

    Wildcard thoughts?

    Sanchez 4.0
    TAA Cancelo Rudiger White Livramento
    Salah Jota Gray Raphinha Sissoko
    Ronaldo Antonio Toney

    1. KieranKA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Rudiger is out. Ronaldo has bad fixtures so I prefer Lukaku, but it's hard to argue against Ronaldo.

  23. KieranKA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Rate my wildcard?

    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.

  24. cuppatea78
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    I've been out of the loop this week. What's up with Rudiger and when is he back pls?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Out this week, potentially back next GW

  25. DavvaMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Sorry if this is a really silly question I bought Jota in for 7.6M if he drops in price tonight to 7.5M when I sell him do I sell him at the 7.5M price or the 7.6M price I paid for him?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      7.5

    2. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      7.5

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

      You would sell at 7.5m.

      You eat the full loss value.

      1. DavvaMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 19 days ago

        OK thanks for that guys.

    4. DavvaMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 19 days ago

      On that note are the below good moves?

      A. Jota > Saka
      B. Jota > Foden (rotation risk)

  26. TomSaints
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on:
    McCarthy (Steer)
    Cancelo / James / Duffy / Livramento / (Pinnock)
    Salah / KDB / Foden / Townsend (Mbeumo)
    Lukaku / Antonio (4.5m)

    I’m not really set on goalkeepers and mulling downgrading Foden to Saka to upgrade defence

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

      That's what I'd call a glass cannon team. Could be amazing. Probably won't be.

      1. TomSaints
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I’m sitting about 190k so solid but unspectacular start.

        I’m happy with Brentford assets to confirm in for next 5 and feel very strongly about KDB.

        Foden I’m a bit meh on, I think some good stuff has been written on here about him being benched in favour of champions league.

        So probably get Dias in and Arsenal midfield. But I just keep seeing 5-0 city tomorrow…

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

      Is this a WC team! Si refreshing and lovely.

      I'd keep it that way and plan to do foden to raph in GW10

      1. TomSaints
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        He’s definitely on watchlist but Leeds just not been great.

        I’d like a bold wildcard that gives good chance at getting me into top 10k but equally may crash and burn (along with my level of interest in the season haha)

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

          Yeah go bold imo. Game is supposed to be fun, not pressurised to succumb to the scaremongering or accept the groupthink

  27. HM2

    Anything worth a hit here?

          I'd fancy a cheeky punt on Mahrez(c) if I could

            Do you think he will start?

                With Torres and Jesus out I think so

                Same. I've got the money for Jota -> Mahrez. Was going to hold Jota for watford. Jota could do well though, or not play

              Benching attackers always go wrong for me so I would pick C

              I'd go C. Couldn't bench a fairly in form mid for a defender.
