We’re back for another shot at FanTeam‘s latest Weekly Monster, in which Fantasy managers can turn a £1.68 entry fee into a £1,260 cash windfall.

The Weekly Monster is a Fantasy tournament that effectively gives entrants the chance to build a ‘Free Hit’ squad for Gameweek 9 and win big.

There is a kitty of £10,500 (or €12.5k) to play for, with prizes awarded down to 1,000th place and beyond.

The deadline is at 15:00 GMT on Saturday.

For those with a bit more money to spend, there is a sister tournament with exactly the same rules that costs £10.08 to enter and offers a prize pool of £42,000.

Head to the FanTeam lobby and look for the ‘Gameweek 9 €50K EPL Weekly Monster [€5K to 1st place]’ link (seen above) to choose your level of entry.

SCOUT PICKS FOR GAMEWEEK 9

With Chelsea assets not available due to the Saturday lunchtime kick-off, we have opted for FPL premiums such as Harry Kane (8.7m), Jamie Vardy (9.2m) and Son Heung-min (9.0m) who are favourably priced in this week’s FanTeam. The Spurs duo love facing West Ham and will hope to repeat their returns from last Sunday’s trip to Newcastle.

Vardy is the first name that comes to mind when replacing the injured Romelu Lukaku. He is the league’s joint-top scorer with seven goals and his Leicester side have scored at least twice in each of their last three league outings, as well as Wednesday evening’s heroic 4-3 win at Spartak Moscow.

Crystal Palace look impressive under Patrick Vieira and were denied a win at his former club Arsenal due to an injury-time equaliser. Odsonne Edouard (9.5m) thundered in a shot off the crossbar – his third goal from just 267 minutes – and will be excited to face a Newcastle side yet to either win or keep a clean sheet, hence the double-up with Wilfried Zaha (9.6m). In fairness to the Magpies, scoring themselves doesn’t tend to be a problem, netting in 15 of their last 17 league matches. Star man Allan Saint-Maximin (7.9m) therefore gets the nod.

Raphinha (9.1m) is back from starring for Brazil, as Leeds face Wolves, with defence covering both sides of the Southampton v Burnley spectacle – Tino Livramento (7.6m) and Nick Pope (6.3m). Everton aren’t known for their clean sheets but Rafael Benitez will drill his side to match their 2-0 win over Norwich in Gameweek 6, boosting Michael Keane‘s (8.5m) potential. And Ruben Dias (9.2m)? He’s a defender for Manchester City, so nothing much needs to be said – six clean sheets and the fewest shots conceded (49) by far.

HOW TO PLAY: A BRIEF GUIDE

Slightly different from the usual squad-based games, FanTeam managers are given a budget of €95m to build a team of 11 players that includes at least one goalkeeper, three defenders, two midfielders and one forward.

A maximum of three players are allowed from one club and captains score double points, as usual.

Here are some other minor differences to the otherwise easy-to-play game:

  • There is no bench or manual substitutes; instead, there is a ‘Safety Net’ feature. If a player in your Fantasy team isn’t in the starting XI for their side, they will automatically be substituted for the next priced player from the same position and club.
  • A ‘Stacking Penalty’ is given if you have two or more defensive players from the same club and they keep a clean sheet. One point is deducted for each additional asset that you select from the same side.

HOW DOES THE SCORING WORK?

FPL managers looking for a way to make their knowledge pay will have no trouble picking up FanTeam‘s Gameweek 9 Weekly Monster, with its familiar scoring system.

Think of it as FPL without the bonus points, with a few other exceptions such as shots on target and winning/losing impact points – detailed in the graphic above.

    If havertz hauls today, that’d be two captain hauls in a row for the early kickoff, thereby stemming the early kickoff curse for me for future games. One can only hope!

                Tuchel said he will miss next 2 games and will see = could be back vs Newcastle

                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  2 games are Norwich and then the cup midweek... He potential can be back in 10 from that comment

                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  He definitely could and agree that no one knows at this stage. If I was putting money on it though I suspect tuchel will drag out any recovery to ensure he gets full international break off as well.

      2. Brehmeren
        • 11 Years

        Nope

      3. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        He could BUT if he comes back early from injury then he will have to go off for Belgium shortly after so it would be wiser to rest him and he skips internationals and back after that.

    2. TomSaints

      Is it still the early kick off with a Friday game?

      Having (c) Aubameyang and seeing him score and assist but only get 6 points instead of 11-12 due to missed penalty.

      I’m claiming the curse is still alive and well

    Tuned into Soccer AM for the first time in years to discover they don't even have couches anymore. They're sitting on metal crates.

  3. Atimis

    (C) next week will be tough, soo many option but may end with Salah again

    1. ZeBestee
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Just leave it on Salah all season long and chances of you getting more captaincy points at the end of the season would be way higher.

      1. Mbeumo's Post: 7✅
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Not really, last season I got about 540p from captain, while Salah (C) whole season = 460

        1. ZeBestee
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          2 different seasons. Last season Pool in general struggled and although he carried them, he was still not near the levels of this season and the previous 2.

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Salah is in the form of his life. In line to exceed his 303 record.

      2. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Wise words!

      3. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        This, only thing to take into consideration is when he goes to Afcon.

        That is a perfect time to autocap Jota 🙂

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Salah loves hauling vs Brighton.

      1. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        2 goals and 1 assist in 4 home games. Van Dijk has same.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          5 goals, 4 assists in 8 mathes vs Brighton.

          1. Holmes
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Home away will always be a factor for me but thats still not high enough.

            Lets see how they play vs Man City, its not like we have too many alternatives at the moment.

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Salah's form is incredible. If he is at home you have to cap him.

              Simple.

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Salah or Havertz again. Most likely Mo.

  4. Subzero (-4)
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Any early team news for Chelsea circulating?

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      James, Chilwell, Hudson Odoi starting
      No Azpi, Alonso, RLC

  5. Subzero (-4)
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Bottled chillwell captain last minute. Hopefully still plays though.

    1. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I think it was super wise. I wouldn't be surprised if he's benched tbh

    2. DavvaMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I captained Chilwell, nervous wait!!

      1. PartyTime
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Finally!

          Glad I binned Alonso for Ben this gw. Wouldn’t mind if Alonso comes on around the 70th minute for a 1 pt cameo

        • Subzero (-4)
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          How reliable is this guy?

          1. PartyTime
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Not reliable

            • Pumpy
              • 12 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              He's usually spot on and called it with the lineup yesterday but appears he has deleted past tweets. He's followed by a very reliable twitter account too so adds weight. We shall see.

          2. PartyTime
              1 month, 10 days ago

              So Chilwell, Rüdiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta, James likely

          3. Mr Ozil
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Any word on Mount?

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Pretty sure he will start.

        • El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Surprised with Raphinha EO tbh. Loads even captain him. I get he's a great player but LEE is clearly lacking, so people are betting that he can do it by himself. I have my doubts.

          1. Astronaut
              1 month, 10 days ago

              your doubts will probably jinx it....

            • Atimis
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              May sell after NOR if they don’t perform. Arsenal will be playing WAT GW11 so ESR on my list.

            • FOO FIGHTER
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Yeah, I got in Raphinha this week and worried about the Leeds situation.

              There are no standout mid priced midfielders though which makes him one of the better mids to own if you want Son and Salah in your team.

            • HMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Just brought him in this week
              4.5 points per game for sub 7m mid + certain starter. Not terrible

            • Murder on Zidane's Flo…
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Agree. In a vacuum he is value but I have concerns about his productivity in this Leeds team. Sold on WC during last international break, largely for this reason. I imagine he'll be in for me down the track, when Leeds pick up. With their very thin squad a couple of key injuries can really impact significantly

            • NateDog
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 10 days ago

              I think he's drifting further infield of late (probably primarily because of Bamford absence, but perhaps too because Harrison and James are there and he would fit the no.10 role really well) so it's not a bad shout. I imagine barring injuries I'll keep him for most of the season, he's shown that whether Leeds have a full squad or not he is still capable of returning and they're not in a good run of form either, so if they pick up at some point he could become an even better option.

          2. Astronaut
              1 month, 10 days ago

              is it just me or does anyone else feels like CR7 is like an albatross around the neck with his blanks and price.

              1. Holmes
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                would be same for anyone at that price. If Salah blanks in 2-3 consecutive games, even he will be questioned.

                1. HMC
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Wasn’t it last season he blanked in like 6 straight and people were saying how it’s much better to spread the funds

                  1. Holmes
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    Yeah, happens every season with every premium. Pretty sure that kind of phase will occur again this year as well.

              2. Bennerman
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Popular backslash theory.

                But fact is he had six goals in eight games overall, without him or the team getting that close to playing their best yet.

                1. Bennerman
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Backlash. Weird autochange there.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Thoughts on Leicesters attack

              GW13 to 21 the 9 games are played in just over a month.

              Can see Vardy being rotated a bit with Daka getting more games.
              Would Nacho or Daka be a better shout for this run?

              Cheers

              1. ZeBestee
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                According to Brendan, Vardy will get the PL games while the other 2 will rotate for the EL til the latter stages.

                So you wiuld expect Vardy to start most if not all league games.

              2. Toked
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Really unsure on that one myself, tomorrow's game should yield more answers.

              3. FOO FIGHTER
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Rodgers made it clear he is keeping Vardy fresh for the PL. Chances of him getting benched unlikely.

                1. Bertonian
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Yeah for now Vardy is nailed but there are 2 prem games a week from GW13 up to New Year’s Day so Vardy at 34 may be rested to keep him fresh. Daka looking good alternative as well.

                  1. Bennerman
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    If you look at his record the past eight seasons, he very rarely misses a league game.
                    Different managers have come and gone, and they all recognise the same thing: always play Vardy

            • ZeBestee
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Started Hwang over Raphinha. It was a tough call that I know many would have gone the other way but with the way Leeds are conceding chances, they may as well be punished by Wolves.

              1. HMC
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                5 shots in 4 games for Hwang. Might be efficient but not enough for me to bench Raphinha

              2. NateDog
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 10 days ago

                That's a pretty tough one to be fair, Leeds always concede chances and Jimenez being back should be good for Hwang, but similarly Wolves have only kept clean sheets to Southampton and Watford and Raphinha is in a decent run of form

            • Over Midwicket
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Anyone considering Chilwell over TAA? Save 2 mil and can get an explosive LB with great long term fixtures.

              1. ZeBestee
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                TAA missed that deflection last gw just before being substituted. Had that gone in, am sure there might be no conversation on this. I would rather double up imo.

              2. FOO FIGHTER
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                I am quite happy with Trent, Cancelo and Chillwell back 3.

                  • 1 Year

                • 11 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                I’d rather have both over 1 as both can be explosive

              4. Bennerman
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                What is this 'explosive' polllox?

                1. Bennerman
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  So much jargon here.

                  Yeah, he has scored twice in succession. But still he had 10 goals in 180 games in his career.

                    Explosive essential is relatiive to position.

                Having double Che def for next 3 at least without TAA, should match the points. Further on may do Azpi Chilwell to TAA Reguilon.

              Thoughts on Bailey as an option? Or too soon to tell?

                That is the exact thought, yeah

                Looks very lively but seems to be injured a lot so far

              Would you be happy with a 7.5 mid/forward getting you an average of 6 points per game? That is an average of 222 points a season, rounding to around 200 points with everything taken into consideration,
              a more than decent return.. TAA will most likely give you that this season.

                1 month, 10 days ago

                Correct, Trent is the best middle priced player to own.

                • 5 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                So far Cancelo gives u that for less $. TAA defo great pick but wouldn’t exaggerate.

                1. FOO FIGHTER
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Not many defenders have reached over 200 points in a season in FPL.

                  If I had only one choice between Trent and Cancelo then Cancelo loses out.

                  1. Atimis
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    Just saying what we have now

                    1. FOO FIGHTER
                      • 2 Years
                      1 month, 10 days ago

                      Which brings me back to my point, Trent is the best middle priced asset to own in FPL.

                Only if you want to keep a player for whole season.

                Well yeah. This goes without saying, hence everyone having him.

                Last season Emerson scored higher but of course that included the injury. Anything could happen. I own him but you are banking on him playing most of the season in order to justify those funds being tied

                Person recommends TAA for FPL teams. Hold the front page.

                Just like it was game over for non owners last week when you predicted Ronaldo would score a hattrick?

                        There are a number of users on this site that have no interest in being helpful, and would instead prefer to troll, annoy and just be a general nuisance. Real shame honestly as for the most part there’s a good community here, but there’s always the bad eggs that have to make sure all can’t be well.

                  Lot of talk saying Alonso is either absent or benched...

                      I think we're looking at different accounts, but I might have seen Goat say it? I'm seeing an Asian account with the deets. They've just send RLC won't start either (hardly breaking news).

                        Apologies, an African account. Says Azpi, Alonso, RLC not in the XI.

                  Makes total sense to give him a rest vs NOR
                  Hopefully James can keep his spot when Azpi returns

                            Pretty bloody good unfortunately. Can't see beyond an Aussie win, and it could be a brutal one

                        Very promising, especially seeing the youth coming through for the Matildas. I know it’s a while away but if they can block out the noise behind the scenes, they’re setting themselves up nicely for 2023

                          Yes a lot of noise behind the scenes, probably won’t end well

                      You're assuming neither come on. Azpi often does.

                        Yes. Alonso rarely, thought it said neither were in the squad

                      Have Azpi with ESR as first sub but I’m pretty sure he will come on though.

                        Wouldn’t say reliable but haven’t really followed early chelsea news before

                      I would if Azpi doesn't play. I'll be sweating towards the end of the Chelsea game!

                      I'd ask this question later on after the games. Anything could happen 🙂

                      I don’t mind my players getting benched as I have one myself. What I’m annoyed about is the order in which I’ve organised said bench. In no way did I see an Arsenal clean sheet, yet I have White first sun and ESR last.
                      I need a spanking.

                        ESR first sub for me, with Armstrong in the lineup. Tense day coming up.

                      Dias last week, Azpi this week - this 'having a lot of money in defence' thing isn't working out

                        I think the pattern here is giving the defenders with the most mins a spell vs the weaker teams.
                        Seems safer to bring in attackers when targeting these fixtures

                      No Azpi in the starting lineup. He's going to come on for a 1 point cameo isn't he? Have ESR first on my bench!

                        Got back to the Hotel yesterday a bit tipsy and ready to tweak my team in shape after a horrid week at work.

                        Was my first time in ten years missing the deadline like that. Stupidly enough I also went for tantrum transfers last weekend using my two ft’s. 😀

                        Hence I find myself with Kaku vc and in need of Christensen and Cancelo to start.

                        Admittedly I did this to myself and deserve to be punished! 😆

                        Since May 2021, Azpi was subbed on from the bench twice, there is hope he won’t perform at all if he should receive due rest.

                          Yeah. That’s so low because he started all the others.

                            But can’t really see a reason to sub him in other than injury

                          No, but it has Azpil not starting, so you would think he will start.

                          They are hungry. But regardless of that, you’ll all be getting a poppadom with no dip.
