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:

    Would you play

    D.Luiz or Semedo I have Saä

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

      Not much in it, both are probably going to be 1-2pts. Go for Semedo since he is atleast sure to start.

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

      S

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

      Semedo

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

    Cancelo or TAA? That is the question

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

      Both is the answer

      1. Squib
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Correct on that I'd say

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

      Are you Shaw?

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

    On a WC - James or Laporte this week?

    Will sub in James next week. Or is it mad planning a sub?

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

      James then

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

    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)

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

      Use Livramento?

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

        Yes. But don’t want to play Marcal. Livramento will come in for Rudi.

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

          If Marcal is expected to start, then he should be fine vs Villa. Decent CS chance.

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

      Hold. Downgraing Ron and upgrading Sarr next week would look great

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

    Rudiger and Pogba -> Cancelo and Mount? (-4) can’t afford just Rud to Cancelo.

    Otherwise just start Liv or Harrison

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

      Why get rid of Rudiger ? Can you get another playing player somehow.

    2. nadman89
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      rud to laporte then?

  6. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Don't THINK wildcard is needed... yet. 1FT 3.1 ITB, Tsimikas to Cancelo??? & Sarr first sub if Raph misses out.

    Sanchez (Steele)
    Tierney Rudiger** Semedo (Livramento Tsimikas)
    Salah Benrahma Gray Raphinha* (Sarr)
    Ronaldo Antonio Jimenez

    Cheers all & GL!

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

      Yes and I would play Sarr over Raph

  7. Pep's Money Laundry

  16. aapoman

    How this WC team look? Too many uncertainties?

    Ramsdale
    TAA Cancelo James
    Salah Son Raphinha Mbeumo
    Lukaku Antonio Hwang

    Foster; Duffy, Livramento, Brownhill

    1. NABIL - FPL otai

      Solid. Not really.

  17. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Best replacement for Bamford 9.2m?

    Own Lukaku & Antonio

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

      Jimenez

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

      Next week Toney.

      This week for a one week punt, Maupay, Wilson, Jiminez

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

      Is DCL fit? WHU and WAT next

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

        No

  18. dekikide
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Is Rudiger in for a longer injury?
    I have 1 FT I can transfer him out for free, but I do have someone on bech that can step up

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

      Back injuries are the sort which can drag on. But it didn't sound bad originally

  19. ‘Tis the Season
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Surely D Luiz is a trap…

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

      Hmm a solid bench option but nothing else in my eyes

    2. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Expectations so low it cannot be a trap unless he's suddenly dropped

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

      Not necessarily a trap but waste of 0.2m if you ask me

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

    Hei guys!

    But for real. Jesus and Torres out, home game. Who will be starting upfront and scoring his ass off?

    a) Bernardo
    b) Sterling
    c) Foden
    d) Grealish
    e) KDB
    f) Mahrez

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      F

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

      B

  21. aapoman
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    A. Foden and 4.4 striker (fodder)
    or
    B. Antonio and 4.4 midfielder

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      B

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

      definitely B. You would want the fodder to actually play minutes in case you need him.

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

      B wow easy

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

      B

  22. Cheeto__Bandito
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Best option?

    A) Antonio, Foden

    B) Hwang, Son

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      A

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

      I like B more. Son and Hwang will likely be in my wildcard team come deadline

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

      A

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

      B

  23. Big Hands Barry
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Which combo is better
    A) Azpil and Saka
    B) James and Mount

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

      B

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

      A for me

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

      A

  24. Milkman Bruno
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Is it right to start Raphina and hope for something from a cameo or play Livramento?

      1. Big Hands Barry
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Y

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

        Start him

      3. Wild Rover
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        If he doesn't start which is likely, then Livramento's chance of a cs increases, especially with Bamford also out. Both are on my bench, but Livramento first sub.

      4. Maverick 11
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I got rid for foden

    • sirmorbach
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Narrowed it down to this:

      Ramsdale / Foster
      TAA / Dias / Azpilicueta / Livramento / _________
      Salah / Son / Raphinha / Luiz / _________
      Antonio / Armstrong / _________

      A. Cancelo, Foden, Toney
      B. Duffy, Mbeumo, Vardy

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

        A but don't be surprised if B give you more points this week

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

          Thank you, mate!

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

      How many differentials do you aim for on a WC? And what % ownership do you define as differential?

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

        To me a differential is a player who very few others have in ML. In saying that if we’re talking about a general sense I’d say one that’s owned by roughly >10%

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

          I'm talking general. 10% seems reasonable.

          I don't focus on ML at all, focus on OR and let the ML handle themselves

    • MattB
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Ramsdale (Foster)
      TAA, Cancelo, Reguillon (Duffy, Livramento)
      Salah, Foden, Benrahma, Raphina (Allen)
      Toney, Ronaldo, Jiminez

      Any suggestions with the 1FT?
