Win £1,000 for free with Fantasy5 by picking the best players for Gameweek 18


Sponsored by Fantasy5


And then there was four.

Six Premier League matches have now been postponed after Aston Villa v Burnley became the latest match to fall to Covid-19 but you can still salvage a nice Christmas bonus out of the FPL wreckage with Fantasy5.

They are ploughing ahead with their Gameweek 18 event, which need we remind you is completely free-to-play, and are offering a cool £1,000 if you can predict four players from the weekend’s remaining Premier League matches who can beat their Fantasy5 points targets.

The deadline remains at 15:00 GMT, however, so get those entries in fast.

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

You can even set up a mini-league and compete with colleagues, friends and family – something we’ve done recently.

Last month, Fantasy Football Scout unveiled a nine-week battle that pits ten staff members and Pro Pundit experts 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. Below the ‘how to’, you can see which players the Scout crew have selected for Gameweek 18.

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 Gameweek 18 matches below and, if they all exceed their individual ‘points targets’ (a par score set by Fantasy5), you’ll be in the money:

  • Leeds United v Arsenal
  • Wolves v Chelsea
  • Newcastle United v Manchester City
  • Tottenham v Liverpool

Anyone who manages to pick five successful outperformers will be in the money, with a £1,000 prize up for grabs!

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

The deadline for this week’s entries is at 15:00 GMT on Saturday December 18.

SCOUT’S PICKS FOR GAMEWEEK 18 OF FANTASY5

The FFS Challenge has had six rounds – here is the current mini-league table:

As mentioned on Friday’s round-up piece, 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, the pair for Antonio Rudiger 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 the midweek round, with Burnley v Watford postponed due to Covid.

The following players exceeded their Gameweek 16 points target: Jorginho, Antonio Rudiger, Kieran Tierney, Gabriel and Aaron Ramsdale.

The following players exceeded their Gameweek 17 points target: Jordan Ayew, Odsonne Edouard, Armando Broja, Jarrad Branthwaite, Ruben Neves, Romain Saiss and Lukasz Fabianski.

***Please note that these selections were made before Villa v Burnley was cancelled, so disregard the picks from that match***

    Martinelli surely not dropped after his goal last week, careful those thinking of bringing Smith Rowe in

    1. tokara
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      20yr old need a rest

    2. FDMS All Starz

      More to do with rest than dropped I think, but he could easily play you never know, Odegaard could drop out instead or ESR could sit on the bench like last time, equal chances for all of these to happen imo

  2. C_G

    pick one :

    Raph
    ESR
    Saka

    Have Laca

    1. _Ninja_

      Saka

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 10 hours ago

      ESR owner but I’ll go Saka, purely because of the risk of not playing but if both start they have equal chance of doing well, you have been warned

    1. Who would you take out for Laca? Antonio, King or Broja?

    2. Is it worth doing Brownhill to Raphinha for a -4 to get 11 players?

  4. C_G
    • 6 Years
    29 days, 10 hours ago

    pick one :

    Raphina
    ESR
    Saka

    hi, have 1ft and 4.4m itb.

    ramsdale
    taa - james - cancelo - reguilon*
    salah - bernardo - jota
    -

    a) bowen -> son/foden
    b) gilmour -> foden/mount

    1. PLerix

      B with Foden

    Essentially those asking if Watkins to Lacazette worth a -4, look at this way, if you go ahead with it you need laca to get atleast 4pts to match the 0pts from Watkins, and anything above is a bonus, so would you bet on laca getting a return today, even if it’s just an assist? If so then do it if not then hold Watkins, having said that what do you guys think will happen? I’m in the same boat lol

    1. _Ninja_

      Think Chelsea v Villa will be off as well though.

      1. JBG
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 10 hours ago

        This

      2. FDMS All Starz
        • 6 Years
        29 days, 10 hours ago

        Norwich have cases too so that Arsenal game could be off too, they could both be off or both could happen

    Will decide if this GW will be counted as a round of Last Man Standing by the number of games played and the safety score. A negative safety score will count as a bye week for example. Only 2 games played will probably count as a bye week unless they are 2 Sunday games.

    Gallagher to Saka worth a -4?

    If yes, then VC on Saka or Foden?

  9. 420king
    • 7 Years
    29 days, 10 hours ago

    City likely to go ahead now that Arsenal game is starting, right?

    Bowen to Foden for -4 to cover my rivals?

  10. Fantasy Football Friend!

    Have Arsenal left hotel yet?

  11. Better Call Raul
    • 2 Years
    29 days, 10 hours ago

    Anyone else thinking might as well chance it and take a hit for a city midfielder for tomorrow?

  12. Werner Bros
    • 6 Years

    Anything worth a hit here?
