Win £1,000 for free with Fantasy5 by picking the best players for Gameweek 19


Sponsored by Fantasy5


Three festive Premier League matches have already been postponed for Covid-19 reasons but you can still salvage a nice Christmas bonus out of the FPL wreckage with Fantasy5.

They are ploughing ahead with their Gameweek 19 event, which need we remind you is completely free-to-play, and are offering a cool £1,000 if you can correctly predict a player to beat their given points target from each of the weekend’s selected Premier League matches.

The deadline is at 15:00 GMT on Sunday 26 December.

£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 19.

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

  • Burnley v Everton (which has since been postponed)
  • Norwich City v Arsenal
  • West Ham United v Southampton
  • Aston Villa v Chelsea
  • Brighton and Hove Albion v Brentford

Anyone who manages to pick successful outperformers from each match will be in the money, with a £1,000 prize still up for grabs despite there being one fewer fixture.

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

SCOUT’S PICKS FOR GAMEWEEK 19 OF FANTASY5

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

With one of last week’s five selected matches postponed (Aston Villa v Burnley), there were fewer chances for the Scout ten to make a successful guess. The only two to do so were Tom and Sam, both of whom picked Joao Cancelo before his goal, assist and clean sheet at Newcastle United.

The following players exceeded their Gameweek 18 points target: Riyad Mahrez, Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Martinelli

FPL Nymfria

The most-selected players for each match are:

  • Norwich City v Arsenal: Tierney (4), Martinelli (3), Gabriel (2)
  • West Ham United v Southampton: Bowen (2), Antonio (2)
  • Aston Villa v Chelsea: Rudiger (3), Alonso (2), Ramsey (2)
  • Brighton and Hove Albion v Brentford: Mbeumo (3), Lamptey (2), Maupay (2)

With Burnley v Everton now off the table, it’s interesting to see all ten select an Arsenal option against Norwich. The most variety occurs in East London, where eight different players were selected for West Ham’s hosting of Southampton.

      No way 😉 Only thick players ranked around 2 million have used it. None of the good ones. Check HoF top 100 for exampla.

                Would you rather sell Watkins or Lacazette for Ronaldo?

                (Doing Salah to Son too)

                  • 1 Year

                  Watkins. Laca has Norwich this GW

                  1. Gomolon
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 7 Years
                    23 days, 5 hours ago

                    Watkins has Leeds and Brentford after that though :/

                      23 days, 5 hours ago

                      Not sure if Leeds will be ready to play just a couple days after boxing day.

                      Leeds game probably postponed. Definitely Watkins

                3. Gunneryank
                    23 days, 5 hours ago

                    Probably Watkins but i kinda want to keep him (assuming Villa plays football of course). I don't have Laca or Ronaldo. Yet lol.

                    Not with Sonaldo. Quality over quantity.

                  • 6 Years
                  23 days, 5 hours ago

                  What's the threshold for free hit?

                  Minus 8 to field 9 would be close. But free hit could be more valuable in future weeks.

                  I've currently got 9 with a free transfer to field.

                  1. Tonyawesome69
                    • 3 Years
                    23 days, 5 hours ago

                    Depends on who the players are

                    1. AC/DC AFC
                      • 6 Years
                      23 days, 5 hours ago

                      I guess so but assuming most active teams have some decent picks.

                      You're right I don't mind a hit or two into Son, Bowen or Manchester United picks

                      1. Tonyawesome69
                        • 3 Years
                        23 days, 5 hours ago

                        If you can cover the main picks that'll be on FH with a hit or two then I would sway towards saving the FH.

                        You are comparing your FH team to your non-FH team in order to gauge the effectiveness of the FH chip

                  2. Mr. O'Connell
                    • 9 Years
                    23 days, 5 hours ago

                    Anything less than 10 starters with a -8 is FH territory I think.

                    1. Mr. O'Connell
                      • 9 Years
                      23 days, 5 hours ago

                      Not that you'll actually get 10 starters, but if you think you will, then worth saving the FH.

                      23 days, 5 hours ago

                      I don’t agree , your FH could have players with matches postponed

                    How disappointed will you be with your GW20 team if you FH? If hits are building the team you need...

                  How is this wildcard team? I still have my wildcard and you must use it till 28th December. My old team is a mess with all the cancelations.

                    You have a great opportunity to combine the immediate benefit of a FH with early planning for DGW22 (and maybe 21). I would swap King for a Striker that plays in GW19; I’d probably go with Rashford over KDB (can’t see Kev playing in 19 and 20 anyway); and in the current climate it’s advisable to have a reserve keeper that plays.

                      Thank you! The problem is that my team is in a mess with all the cancellations. The first wildcard can only be used for two days. I would like to have both free hit chips by the end of the season, as the many catch-up games will likely turn out to be quite turbulent.

                    Looks good- similar to mine- see my response to Lord below expect keeping Lacazette for Norwich game ( if on) and getting Foden as think KDB more likely to be rested

                    On WC I would go with a long term pick and high ceiling so Foden

                    Bernardo for minutes but is playing deeper since KDB returned. The others are rotation risks, but I'd go for Foden as he can play LW and Mahrez is off to AFCON so one less winger competing.

                  Can we repost a relevant strategic article over Fantasy Five at some point? Some of us want to see Scout picks before we move onto Christmas Day 🙂

                  What should I do here? Can field 10 as it is, 1FT & 0.3m in the bank. Who should I move out to field 11? If any more postponements I’ll have to FH.

                    Only effective use of transfers I can see is bring in Ronaldo by losing Dennis and Salah for a hit or save FT.

                    Since you already have Ronaldo (C), I would keep Salah for LEI. ESR to Martinelli and save 2nd FT

                    That's the dilemma for most teams. Son is the better long term pick and Ronaldo is the better captaincy for this GW.

                    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      23 days, 5 hours ago

                      I can get son longterm next week in WC.

                      Not sure Ronaldo is that much better Captain this week. Also as a Newcastle fan I really don’t want Ronaldo to do well haha.

                      1. Tonyawesome69
                        • 3 Years
                        23 days, 5 hours ago

                        Ronaldo is definitely the best captain for this GW. Newcastle cannot defend! Option B

                    Have you considered playing your wildcard card this week? I’m in the same space and it solves my GW19 problems without sacrificing much on future planning.

                    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      Not considered it. Seems quite bad timing? Not that next week will be that much better like. How you shaping up?

                      1. Lord.

                        I’ve been keeping my wildcard as a Covid backstop, and with the odd hit, and a lot of luck, it’s worked out well so far. This week I am down to nine players, and was looking at a hit to field eleven, but I also looked at who I’d be bringing in next week on wildcard, and I think I can kill two birds with one stone by bringing it forward. This is what I have in mind:

                        DDG, Sanchez
                        TAA, Cancelo, Reguilon, Coufal, Livramento
                        Sanchez, Son, Jota, Bowen, Trossard
                        Ronaldo, Pukki, Broja

                        Also works well for GW19.

                          The Sanchez in midfield is Rashford!

                          Looks nice tbf. Honestly not sure I’ll have time the next two days. Probably should take a look like. Do we know who and when the doubles will fall?

                            There will be a biggie in GW22, and maybe a smaller one involving United, West Ham and Leicester in GW21. Nothing confirmed yet though.

                    I was thinking similar but makes sense to WC this week ( not a lot going to change by Tuesday) and keep up with Free Hitters and ahead of those taking point hit

                    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      23 days, 4 hours ago

                      Not sure I’d want half the players this week that I’d want for WC. Not looked at it properly though and not really got time tbh

                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 6 Years
                        23 days, 4 hours ago

                        It’s looking ok really. This is where I am for now on WC

                        Ramsdale Sanchez
                        TAA Cancelo James Dalot Davies
                        Son Foden Jota Bowen Martinelli
                        Ronaldo Lacazette Broja

                        If Arsenal game off thinking might go Mahrez over Jota for 19 ( and get back in 20) and Laca to Edouard who has Norwich next week- that would give couple of differentials over next 2 pre BB hopefully in 22

                          Tbf that’s a great team. Hmm, you’ve got me thinking now. Do you think my team warrants an a WC this week? Who are the top DGW players you are targeting in yours?

                            I think you do need to WC to maximise any value left in holding it. You have starting risks in ESR, Antonio and while Foden should be ok we don’t know if he off the naughty step - Teams to target are in particular United Spurs West Ham and Watford as most favoured for doubles in 22. I will use transfers in 20,21 and 22 to move to more double week players as picture unfolds

                  Merry Xmas everyone. Hope you have a great few days! Which option looks best here?

                  A.... - 4 ....salah and king to ronaldo and Gallagher (exact cash). So many doubts in this team tho

                  Ramsdale
                  Cancelo James alonso (livra)
                  Foden* bilva Gallagher esr*
                  Ronaldo Laca Antonio*

                  B.....FREE HIT

                  Ramsdale
                  Cancelo James Tierney dalot (johnson)
                  Kdb son bowen martinelli (ramsey)
                  Kane ronaldo (broja)

                  If Norwich arsenal is postponed I'll downgrade kdb to bilva and get reguillon, rashford and sanchez

                  Thanks

                    Merry Xmas. Your team is almost identical to mine, but I have Sanchez and Saka over Ramsdale and ESR and nothing ITB.

                    I am 50/50 on whether to free hit - but I think you probably have an additional rotation risk in ESR. He'll play some part but just whether he can keep coming on and scoring goals really.

                    If I were you I'd maybe lean *slightly* towards the free hit, but if you aren't comfortable doing that, then the suggested move looks good. I'm eyeing up bringing in Martinelli + Ronaldo for Salah + King for a -4.

                      Thanks....massively torn. Leaning towards the free hit, which also gives me salah captain v Leicester

                  Any reason why Bruno isn't getting much consideration in free hit drafts? Keep seeing drafts including KdB, who is not guaranteed to start, and Kane, who has been dreadful for the majority of the season. Bruno has the best fixture, has been in decent form, and is guaranteed to start - seems like a better use of a premium spot to me.

                    Prefer a punt on Rashford who is likely to play up top with Ronaldo.

                      Likely yeah but wouldn't be surprised to see Greenwood come in for him. Not convinced Rashford has been in great form recently either.

                        23 days, 5 hours ago

                        That's true about Greenwood. It's risky

                        Same can be said about Bruno. Not been convincing in a 4222 as a FPL option

                    I see where you are coming from but likely because he is considered to be very much second fiddle to Ronaldo whereas KDB and Kane could feasibly be the primary asset in their team. If you sniff an opportunity with Bruno though, explore it and GL

                      Cheers. It does seem like a good opportunity to me. I owned Kane from GW9 until GW16 when he scored me a measly 10 points so just trying to work out whether that is clouding my judgement.

                  Many of the club's objections to playing twice in three days are just the same old reasons. But the clubs ultimately sign up for this schedule. If they really feel that strongly they could take less tv money. The 13 players thing (which can include u21 etc) doesn't look like being stuck to. There is opportunism from some managers (Tuchel) to use Covid as an excuse to get their own way.

                  How is this wildcard team? I still have my wildcard and you must use it till 28th December. My old team is a mess with all the cancelations.

                  de Gea, Foster
                  Alexander-Arnold, Cancelo, James, Dalot, Veltman

                    If you can wait a week it would be better considering the situation atm.

                      Thank you! The problem is that my team is in a mess with all the cancellations. The first wildcard can only be used for two days. I would like to have both free hit chips by the end of the season, as the many catch-up games will likely turn out to be quite turbulent.

                    1.1 on target per game. His shots ITB was really low until the last game too.

                    5 goals, 5 big chances missed. A goal frequency of 254 mins.

                  Currently 8 playing including Fiden and ESR so looking at FH to:

                  Ramsdale
                  Dias Cancelo James
                  Martinelli Son Sterling Bowen odegaard

                  Fodder | Broja | Lamptey | Tsimikas

                  Thoughts?

                      Playing 8:

                      Rams
                      Alonso James Cancelo Tomiyasu
                      ESR Foden Mount

                        With a -4 you could easily get a green arrow. A FH might give you another 15 points. Have a good think about it 1 hour before deadline IMO

                  Anyone know when we find out what fixtures amazon prime have in Jan? On a free trial and trying to figure out whether to pay again.....

                    None at the moment - they are scheduled to show all the games from Dec 28th to Dec 30th, and that is games 11 to 20 of the 20 games they have this season. If any of these get cancelled however, they should have the rights to that fixture when it is rearranged (whenever that will be), or the PL may let them have a different match in lieu at another time.

                      Ah thank you, really helpful. Annoyingly only got it until the 29th so may end up with another month just for the games on the 30th

                    I think another 3 could go. The danger is Arsenal, Chelsea for me. It will decimate squads who did well last week
