Who is winning Scout’s Fantasy5 mini-league?


Sponsored by Fantasy5


A little bit of extra cash always comes in handy at this time of year – and you could have £10k in your back pocket by the end of Gameweek 18, simply by predicting Fantasy points returns in five weekend Premier League matches.

And, best of all, it’s completely free to play!

We’re talking about Fantasy5, where there are also various other prizes on offer beyond the whopping jackpot. You can even set up a mini-league and compete with colleagues, friends and family – something we’ve done.

Last month, Fantasy Football Scout unveiled a nine-week battle that pits ten staff members and Pro Pundits against each other. To determine who truly has the best eye for a Fantasy player, the FFS Challenge mini-league will take place between Gameweeks 12 and 20.

A small prize is up for grabs but, more importantly, so are bragging rights.

HOW DOES FANTASY 5 WORK?

Fantasy5 is free to play and it follows the exact same scoring system as FPL, just without the bonus points.

It’s as simple as this: pick a player from each of the five selected Gameweek matches and, if they all exceed their individual ‘points targets’ (a par score set by Fantasy5), you’ll be in the money.

Even if you don’t succeed in getting all five right, Fantasy5’s leaderboard allows you to win prizes beyond the £10k jackpot – there’s £500 up for grabs for the Fantasy manager topping the leaderboard

Competition is limited to one entry per person per round. Full terms and conditions are here.

£100 prize every month in Scout's Fantasy5 mini-league

SCOUT’S RESULTS FOR GAMEWEEKS 16 AND 17

The FFS Challenge has had two rounds since the last article – last weekend’s Gameweek 16 fixtures, followed by Gameweek 17 in midweek. Here is the current mini-league table:

GAMEWEEK 17

Tom has established a strong grip on top spot thanks to getting three correct calls over the past two rounds, with Ruben Neves’s assist and Jordan Ayew’s goal taking him up to a total of seven. This was made even more impressive by there only being four matches to this round, with Burnley v Watford postponed due to Covid. There were also successful choices from FPL ElStatto (Odsonne Edouard), Az (Neves) and Ted Talks FPL (Ayew), while FPL Marc is still rooted to the bottom without any correct calls so far.

The following players exceeded their points target: Jordan Ayew, Odsonne Edouard, Armando Broja, Jarrad Branthwaite, Ruben Neves, Romain Saiss and Lukasz Fabianski.

GAMEWEEK 16

Only five players managed to defeat their points total in Gameweek 16, so Sam (FPL Family) and Az both did well to select Kieran Tierney’s clean sheet and assist for Arsenal. Tom chose Antonio Rudiger, who won a pair of Chelsea penalties against Leeds United. However, it was frustrating for others to see Raul Jimenez get sent off, alongside narrow target misses for goal scorers Raphinha and Alexandre Lacazette.

The following players exceeded their points target: Jorginho, Antonio Rudiger, Kieran Tierney, Gabriel and Aaron Ramsdale.

Over the weekend, Gameweek 18 selections will be revealed, as we reach the final three rounds of the FFS Challenge.

    anything worth a hit to field 11?

    A - Livra > Cash
    B - Bowen > ESR

    Ramsdale
    Trent Cancelo James Alonso
    Salah Jota Foden Bernardo
    Watkins
    Foster Antonio Bowen Livramento

    1. Drumandbaines123
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Any money in the bank?

      1. luk46
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        ye, 1m itb, shouldve said it

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      yeh I think a is, looking past just this week.

      1. luk46
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        could go any defender for 6m, has to be a Villa lad tho, right?

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          I brought in Cash, personally.

    3. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      No. You do not need 11. 10 is fine. Bowen has good fixtures coming up and you will want him back.

      1. luk46
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        what about Livra? Villa have good fixtures and the hit could already pay off this week

        1. Jafalad
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          If you bought him when he was 4.0/4.1 like I did, I don't see the point in taking him out. He's your uber enabler.

    4. Drumandbaines123
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Then yeah I'd go Livra to Cash as well. Keeping Antonio and Bowen will prove useful IMO for their upcoming fixtures

      1. luk46
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        hopefully, just brought Bowen in two gameweeks ago for two 2 pointers...

  2. Eat my goal!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    29 days, 18 hours ago

    Surprised by the increases - who the f is dong transfers before we see if games are actually on

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      guilty.

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Watkins and foden are good long term moves even if these games are off and you’d have maybe heard about today’s games being off if they were going to be

      It’s still a bit stupid but with a 0.2 swing from the likes of vardy, Antonio for some I can see why they’ve done it

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        yep, this. 0.2 swing.

      2. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        Well they appear good long term options

        I got Bowen in for that reason but since he’s now out the equation changes quickly

        Villa get an outbreak and Watkins could miss 2/3 gws

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          I think that's slightly overthinking it, play what's in front of you, at least that's what I'll be doing.

    3. kringe
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Held fire with the early transfers for the last 2 weeks but had 2FT and therefore took the risk on an early Antonio to Watkins transfer.

    4. white heart pain
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Not surprised. Most people are casuals and some of us need to make the transfers before we go to bed. Can’t stay up through the night just to hear news. Most just logon and trade and don’t think too mich about it.

  3. PLerix
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    29 days, 18 hours ago

    Ah, should’ve done the Antonio -> Watkins move last night. Can still afford it, but leaves me with almost nothing if I want to upgrade Williams..

    Is Targett a viable option?
    Or should I go Dalot -> Mings?

    1. Jamb0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      100% correct not to do that move last night… gotta make transfers as late as possible

    2. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      No point removing Antonio now. He has great fixtures and will start scoring again.

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        Why so confident?

        Just as likely to get injured if they keep playing him

  4. fish&chips
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    29 days, 18 hours ago

    Best arsenal defender if money not an issue?

    A) Tierney
    B) Tomiyasu
    C) Gabriel
    D) White

    1. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      A

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        Is he nailed?

        1. fish&chips
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          Or is cash a better option? Short term fixtures slightly better for arsenal and hopefully if covid clears up this slot will become a bench player as I've got 4 other premiums

        2. Jafalad
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          Appears so now. He's always an injury waiting to happen imo. I am actually q happy with White at 4.4

          1. fish&chips
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            Yeah maybe white is the better option and bank some cash since I don't need them long term. A bit underwhelming considering I'll need a hit to bring them in though

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      A

    3. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      C - much more goal threat than White and Tierney seems to be injured 50% of the time.

  5. Hazardous1983
    • 11 Years
    29 days, 18 hours ago

    Got 5.1 in bank.

    Should i do sisokko to foden and then will have 9 first team starters...

    Taa cancelo james alonso salah jota.bernardo.foden watkins

    Should i take a hit? And for who

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      yes, I'd get Foden

      1. Hazardous1983
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        Should i take a hit to take out Ny of following

        Sanchez steele livramento gallacher king dennis

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          yeh so you will have 1.6 itb?
          Livramento to Tierney works, considering you don't have Ramsdale.

          1. Hazardous1983
            • 11 Years
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            Spot on.

            Itz either

            Tierney
            Cash
            Smith rowe
            Saka
            Mount

            Those are the ones im looking to get not worth the -8 i feel but -4 seems decent

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 4 Years
              29 days, 18 hours ago

              how can you get livra to cash, did you buy him at 4.4?

              1. Hazardous1983
                • 11 Years
                29 days, 18 hours ago

                Enough money in bankcurrently have 5.1m

                If i do sissoko to foden still got dosh to do livra to cash/tierney

                1. Gabbiadini
                  • 4 Years
                  29 days, 18 hours ago

                  Ah ok. I probably prefer Cash over Tierney.

  6. jdp219

    Gallagher > ...
    1) ESR
    2) Saka

    1. Hazardous1983
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Makes sense how about gallacher to mount

      Which one is better option smith rowe or saka

      1. jdp219
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        Not enough in the bank for Mount.

        1. Hazardous1983
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          0.1 short. Could have.done it few days ago but not worth it due to the risk of last.mknute cancellations

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      1

  7. gellinmagellan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 18 hours ago

    Worth doing Sanchez > Ramsdale if I already have White?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      I think that's fine.

  8. Avery
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    29 days, 18 hours ago

    Anyone tempted to NOT captain Salah?

    1. gellinmagellan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Kind of but feel he'll want to break Vardy's record

    2. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Briefly...and then I saw the alternatives i.e. none.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        city just scored 7 and now play the worst defence in the league, some uncertainty there but for anyone who gets the punt right a city mid will probably out score salah

        1. rokonto
          • 6 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          What about Jesus?

    3. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Thought about giving it to KDB or Foden

  9. Little Red Lacazette

    2. kringe
      • 7 Years

      Not bad. Tempted to Bench Watkins. But i suppose you might need him as VC

    3. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Dennis before Gallagher to make it alphabetic

        The double up on Arsenal defence is what I don't like

  12. afsr

    Hey everyone
    My playing team is

    Cancelo, TAA, James, Reguilon*
    Salah, Jota, Foden

    1. afsr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Another thought is start preparing the cash for getting Ronaldo back and get Ramsey for Bowen

      1. Diedhiou See That?
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

    1. afsr

      definitely A, Watkins is a must-have

    Targett or Konsa?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      I tend to prefer the FB but there is the rotation risk of Young.
      Maybe Konsa.

    Chances of bernardo starting?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      I'd say low, purely because there's no need to risk him should there be any doubt whatsoever.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        and the fact pretty much everyone is fit bar Torres.

  18. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    29 days, 18 hours ago

    Morning dzzz, cant decide which def to get.

    Ramsdale
    Taa James Cancelo -- Livramento Dalot
    Salah Jota Raph Gundog Foden
    Antonio Watkins -- Davis

    A: Livra >> Tierney...good price, doesnt mess up structure but dbl up
    B: Livra >> Cash..the popular move, 5m for a villa def feels pricey
    C: Livra >> Alonso...high ceiling move for 3 gw's
    D: Livra >> Davies..keeps the price structure. good long term fix for spurs, should have dgw's BUT they play liverpool this week so might as well save a transfer

  19. barcaa7
    • 3 Years
    29 days, 18 hours ago

    Laca or Watkins

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Laca for me. As I want a short-term pick.

        Considering the NOR fixture isn’t certain, it’s very short term!

          Well, I still prefer Leeds over Burnley.
          I also think that's too early to suggest, Norwich played Villa with a pretty depleted squad so the precedent is there.

    Is anybody looking forward to try to figure out how to try to get Ronaldo back in the team?

    With the situation this week and all these solid mid to high-mid type assets from City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Villa getting popular and folks taking hits, I’m liable to blow up my team structure to where it’ll certainly be hard to get Ronaldo back in for this green run of Norwich, Newcastle.

    He’s due for a blow out score. In 2nd in my league playing catch up and Ronny is proper differential status atp. Anybody in the dilemma?

      Burnley* not NOR. Lol. Same difference tho.

      I’m in this place - have 10 players this week but in order to get a decent 11th (eg Foden) I need to sell Ronaldo and split the money.

      Think I’m going to hold Ronaldo and play 10

    Boring gameweek. Looks like everyone has almost the same team

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Maybe, but some have taken hits to get there.

    Have 10 playing players this week- still got 1FT remaining- worth doing Bowen —> Saka for free to field 11?

    1. Ha.
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      I would

  25. Mickey Tyrion™

    Not many people talking about the fact that taking hits this week only effectively cost a -2 at most, and only upside from there. (Assuming you get a nailed starter for a blanking player)

    Those open to odd -8 can get close to a team reset for -4 plus potential upside. Seems like we should be much more liberal with hits this week. Don’t see any reason not to stretch to get 11 out there.

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years

      Quite like my team, so it's a -2 then a -4 to get it back to how it was.

      However, there seems to be no point planning anything, so may as well just play the gameweek in front of you and deal with the fallout later.

    Morning all

    Did Ronaldo & gilmour > Watkins & foden for free. Should I do :

    1) guiata > ramsdale (-4)
    2) Save so I can bring back Ronaldo if needed in 2 moves
