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:

    James Vs Cancelo?

    -James has better fixtures (next 4)
    -Both almost nailed (Zinchenko is fully fit and can't stay sidelined forever)
    -Both very attacking
    -James 0.7 cheaper

    I have no clue what to do

    1. Are you Shaw?
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      -Cancelo higher chance of CS (City's defence is number 1 in the league.. and Europe I think)

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

      James almost nailed? You're joking...

      1. Are you Shaw?
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        With Rudiger and Thiago Silva out.. he must be, no?

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

          You didn't specify it was for 1 game

    3. nadman89
      • 10 Years

      get cancelo this week and james next week

    4. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      James is far from nailed, I've owned James this season and won't be getting him back that's fir sure

      1. Are you Shaw?
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Alright these comments are helping me lean towards Cancelo (whom Ive been set on for the past two weeks but just wanted other people's two cents)

        Thanks for the input

        1. Cornelius
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Except Cancelo was diabolically bad against Liverpool just to reinforce that he is, in fact, a defensively poor defender. And Zinchenko can’t be far away. But offensively, well, a couple of rebounds so far but surely an intended pass will make its way to where it’s supposed to go eventually…

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

        Unfortunate timing perhaps? James was injured and had a house break-in

    5. Snooze ya lose
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      C all day

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

    Think I'm rolling with this...

    Sanchez
    TAA / Alonso / Semedo / White / Livramento
    Salah (C) / Jota
    Ronaldo / Antonio / Toney

    Steele // Raphinha / Bissouma / Traore

    Move was planned to be either:
    A) Semedo > Dias
    B) Semedo > Cancelo

    Plus perhaps:
    1) Traore > Mbeumo
    2) Teaore > Gallagher
    3) Traore > ???

    Saka an option for the Traore spot but I could use that 0.5m difference tbh.

    Opinions?

    1. Crunchie

    4. Hazz

      B isn't fun if he's benched 😉

      Bottomed, friends, apologise. What do you say?

      Ramsdale / Foster
      TAA / Cancelo / Dias / Azpilicueta / Livramento
      Salah / Son / Foden / Raphinha / Luiz
      Antonio / Toney / Armstrong

          Thank you, mate!

      2. Harvey_27
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Hm, no big hitters up front though, and if Foden, Raph and Luiz all don't play, I guess you're going 5-2-3. Happy with that and do you have a way to move to Lukaku/Vardy/Kane?

      3. CR7 is Home
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Bench one:

        A) Rafhinha
        B) Duffy
        C) Livra

        1. Pep's Money Laundry
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Raphinha won't start, so base your decision around that. I own all 3 and Raphinha is 2nd on my bench

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

          no not really

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

        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

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

          A for me.

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

            Thanks, that should say -4 as i WC last week and ran out of time to do Benrahma to Luiz last week. Doh!

        2. Dexters Laboratory
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 19 days ago

          A .. is this for a hit?

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

            Yes I WC last week. Pressed the button on Friday, tried to do Benny to Luiz at 10.59am Sat morning, but ran out of time. Came back as Jiminez Capt, so wasn't all bad (I was sure it was on Lukaku) 🙂

      7. b91jh
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Seems a straightforward thinking but personally think Alonso will start bre and BUR due to his aerial advantage....
        With the fixture congestions, we may actually see a league left back (Alonso) and cup left back (Chilly)?

        1. Harvey_27
            1 month, 19 days ago

            The height thing is a good point, but I think the rotation won't be league vs cup(s), more just energy levels, who they're up against on the right flank, tactical gubbins, etc. Just means you need a good bench

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

          Son and Toney or Ronaldo and Mbeumo?

          1. Crunchie

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

          Is Rudiger > Christensen the normal, boring thing to do?

          (Have Cancelo & Dias and no money in the bank).

          1. Dexters Laboratory
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            RJames?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              could be fun

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

            Punt with James could be gold next week

        4. Dexters Laboratory
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 19 days ago

          A) Hwang 343
          B) ESR 352

          Final decision for my WC

          Nobody likes the expensive GK. But I just can't decide on a long term Chelsea defender.

          What do you reckon? On a WC.

          Mendy (Foster)
          Trent Dias Cancelo (White Livramento)
          Salah Jota Raphinha Mbeumo (Brownhill)
          Lukaku Antonio Toney

          1. Dexters Laboratory
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I can definitely see the appeal alright .. plenty of clean sheets in the short term

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

            no problem. You will have problems with AFCON and World club cup or whatever it is called

          Which 1 would you bench this week :-
          a> Livramento (LEEDS)
          b> Saiss (villa)
          c> Bissouma (norwich)

            • 3 Years

            has to be B if i am right and you have Cancelo

            1. Rupert The Horse

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years

            Pretty darn conclusive.

          8. Harvey_27
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Dias and TAA nailed, Foden and Mahrez will be rotated, so maybe base it on your feelings about ManC clean sheets vs Liverpool attacking points for Trent. I see why B would be the way to go but there's a bit of a vibe about Foden being rested this week so bear in mind...

          9. Squib
            • 3 Years

            Azpilacueta?
            James?
            Alonso?

            Or keep Rudiger

                  Yes and the odd assist.

                Really tempted. Tbf if I knew Alonso was guaranteed any starts I'd have him in a heart beat

              Keep Rudiger unless you cant get 10 out

                  With Rudi out, highly likely imo

                      he on the left side, on the left side, on the left side over here 🙂

                      Chilwell/Alonso left, James/Azpi right

                      I think Azpi will be benched or moved to the centre to accommodate James

                        Aaarrgghh! Hahaha! Now I am even more undecided than before.
                        I was reluctantly going Azpi for surety but coveting James or Alonso for haul potential.

            Foster WILLIAMS Brownhill RUDIGER

            A) Save FT (Brownhill likely to come in for 1-2 pts)
            B) Rudiger > James
            C) Antonio & Rudiger > Hwang/Pukki & TAA (-4)
            D) smth else?

            Repost.

            Grealish or Foden more nailed on for this GW?

            Cheers

              I think both should play. Foden has some threat from Gundogan.

              Sterling should play centrally, Mahrez on the right and Grealish on the left.

            Do we have a time scale on the Rudiger injury?

            Start 2 of these & bench order for other 2?

            A Alonso
            B Livra
            C Benny
            D Raph

            1. Bishopool
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Play Livra and... If I had Raph, I would play him as well with Alonso first on bench.

          17. Bishopool
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Bruno -> Sterling (c) (under radar haul?)

            1. Kryptonite666
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Why not De Bruyne at that price point ?

            2. Holmes
              • 8 Years

              Could be under bench

              You'd have balls of solid brass to do that.

              I know im trolling myself too, but I think thats exactly the "Sterling type of game". 6:1. Hattrick and assist.

              If I would chase, I would consider it as a legit differential.

            Thinking of Marcal to Laporte for 1 FT now that Rudiger is not playing. Thoughts ?

            Sanchez
            TAA Cancelo Rudiger* Marcal (Livramento)

            Salah Saka Sarr Gray (Mendy)

            Ronaldo Lukaku (Perica)

              I'd just play Livra. Save a transfer and the cash to maybe have a look at that midfield next week.

            (1) Greenwood/ Scarlett. ➡ Mbeumo/ Armstrong (-4)
            (2) Greenwood/ Shaw. ➡ Mbeumo/ Cancelo (-4)
