FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

Our FFS Open Cup and FFS Members Cup competitions take a break in Gameweek 20 due to the quick turnaround between Fantasy Premier League (FPL) deadlines but we’ve still got the latest results and draws to bring you in our regular round-up.

We’re at the business end of both competitions, with the round of 16s set to take place in Gameweek 21.

There’s a total of £600-worth of prizes on offer across the two tournaments, with a full breakdown towards the bottom of this article.

*all overall Fantasy Premier League ranks given in this article were correct before Gameweek 20 commenced

FFS MEMBERS CUP

Three managers who sat in the top 1k ahead of Gameweek 20, and another lurking just outside, made it through to the last 16 of our FFS Members Cup.

The highest-ranked of these FPL bosses is I Member (449th), whose successful Free Hit saw him see off Korma Police to set up a Gameweek 21 clash with Phoenix From The Flames.

ZIKOFLY (942nd) and Minority Laporte (983rd) defeated Dog Shot Rovers and rligudfootiemanager despite red arrows, in what was a low-scoring Gameweek for most concerned.

Mingo (1,157th) also played their Free Hit to move within touching distance of a three-figure rank, beating Rfiske in the process.

Batmaniac‘s score of 73 was our highest of round five.

The standard is high in our last 16, with Notlob Legin the only manager outside of the top 100k.

The full results from round five are here.

The sixth-round draw is here.

FFS OPEN CUP

In contrast to the FFS Members Cup, there are no managers within the top 1,000 still standing in this tournament after elfortu (637th) and the aforementioned I Member (449th) were dumped out at the sixth-round stage by Bousy_boozer and the mysterious ‘Restored’ team, who is on a remarkable run having been presumably hacked in Gameweek 7.

Al ashkar, Matjes_taet and WEAK BECOME HEROES are all ranked between 3k and 6k and are our best-performing FPL managers still left in the FFS Open Cup.

Al ashkar is on a run of 11 consecutive green arrows, having moved from 611,730th in Gameweek 8 to 3,669th in Gameweek 19.

rocco10 managed to progress despite scoring just 32, with opponent TFO falling seven points short.

The full round six results can be viewed here.

The seventh-round draw is available here.

HOW DO THE CUP COMPETITIONS WORK?

The FFS Cup is very similar to the Fantasy Premier League’s own cup game.

Entrants who qualify for the first round were randomly drawn against each other and the winner of the tie is whoever has the highest score from that Gameweek, minus points spent on transfers (like in the original game and in head-to-head scores).

In the event of a draw, the manager highest in the overall FPL rankings after the tie will progress.

WHAT IS THE GAMEWEEK SCHEDULE?

The FFS Open Cup competition will be played out according to the following proposed Gameweek schedule:

  • Qualifying – Gameweek 12
  • Round 1 – Gameweek 13
  • Round 2 – Gameweek 15
  • Round 3 – Gameweek 16
  • Round 4 – Gameweek 17
  • Round 5 – Gameweek 18
  • Round 6 – Gameweek 19
  • Round 7 – Gameweek 21
  • Quarter-Final – Gameweek 22
  • Semi-Finals – Gameweek 23
  • Final and third place play-off – Gameweek 24

​The FFS Members Cup competition will run as follows:

  • Qualifying – Gameweek 13
  • Round 1 – Gameweek 15
  • Round 2 – Gameweek 16
  • Round 3 – Gameweek 17
  • Round 4 – Gameweek 18
  • Round 5 – Gameweek 19
  • Round 6 – Gameweek 21
  • Quarter-Final – Gameweek 22
  • Semi-Finals – Gameweek 23
  • Final and third place play-off – Gameweek 24

WHEN ARE THE FIXTURES RELEASED?

Where possible, the fixture list for each round will be published before each Gameweek deadline.

    Anyone thinking of a Nacho one week punt against Nor before he goes Afcon?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Yes- thinking of banking Edouard points for him

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      I am. But it is basically -8, so not worth it imo.

    3. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      maybe Lookman

    4. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Can work yes, why not. Anyone against Nor is in Hulk mode

    Any suggestions?

      Mbeumo, Hwang and possibly CR7 to make their way....

      1. Werner Bros
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 23 days ago

        I thought I was set on Mbuemo > Maddison but the injury has put that one on hold. Might have to keep hold of CR7 for now to sort the other issues with non playing players first - unless I use 2nd WC

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      WC when dgw:s are announced?

      1. Werner Bros
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 23 days ago

        Will this be the 2nd WC? Don't have 1st still

        1. Werner Bros
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 23 days ago

          Just seen this has become available now

        2. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 23 days ago

          Yes. The issue is that it would be good to have it also for later dgw:s, but we might have more time to plan for them.

  3. Ruinenlust

    Salah got his just desserts for celebrating Christmas

    1. ‘Tis the Season
      • 3 Years

      nothing like repenting with dessert

  4. ZTF

    Is time running out for DGWs to get announced for the coming week? If not when might we expect any announcement?

    1. Team Bobcat
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      No one knows

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      I fear they might leave it late to avoid covid cancellations.

    3. CONNERS
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      This.

      Otherwise they may end up having to reschedule rescheduled postponed games.

    What has happened to Les Caldwell's team? -604 hits? I was looking for safety score in LMS and I was shocked to see it in Danger zone.

    1. Weak Become Heros

      Rage transfers

        I suppose it was that.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Either he was hacked or there wss big server error when they crashed.

    Good afternoon all!!! Have finally come out from hiding behind the biggest sofa in the house during the Pool match last night!! Any ideas on my team welcomed!! Have 0.4 in the kitty!! Initial thoughts are Gallagher and ESR to Bowen and Gray!! Open to ideas!!! Team is….

    Sanchez
    TAA James Alonso Cancelo
    Son(C) Bernardo Jota
    Ronaldo(VC) Antonio Broja
    Subs- Ramsdale ESR Livramento* Gallagher*

    Cheers everyone!!

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 23 days ago

      I'd probably hold Gallagher & look to shift one of James/Alonso + ESR -> Bowen & Spurs/Villa def

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 23 days ago

        Cheers mate!! Bowen definitely up near the top of my list!! Would leave me with 5.0 to get a defender by losing alonso

    2. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You little liar, you were out from behind the sofa the second the Salah zero points was confirmed and had a party. 😀

  8. Nightf0x

    Salah bsilva -4 to kdb/raz madds(if fit)/lokman ?

  9. jonnybhoy
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 23 days ago

    Anyone wildcarding/free hitting this week if theres a double?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Quite a few.

    2. Feanor
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      When will they decide?

      1. Feanor
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 23 days ago

        For a hot I could do Salah and Brownhill to Son and Moura.

        The good thing about having a bad season is that you can take hits every week to get multiple transfers and it doesn't really matter.

  10. Danstoke82
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 23 days ago

    What to do with this lot? Was all set on Gallagher > Maddison but that injury has put me in doubt

    £1.1ITB 1FT

    DDG
    Cancelo James TAA Reguilon
    Jota Son Bowen Bernardo
    Kane Dennis

    Subs: Steele Livramento Lacazette Gallagher

    Thanks in advance!

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Lacazette -> Watkins/Antonio?

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      I might ditch Livramento. Nice looking team tbh.

      1. Danstoke82
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 23 days ago

        Thanks both. Was looking to some Leicester assets but non standing out. Which one would you go for Antonio or Watkins?

        1. FourLokoLeipzig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 23 days ago

          Watkins for me

      2. FourLokoLeipzig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 23 days ago

        Due to the injury? Could double this week if not, including at home to striker-less Newcastle, so I’m reluctant to get rid if he’s likely to be fit

  11. The Yorkshire Pirlo
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 23 days ago

    Good to save this week? 1 FT, 0.5 ITB

    DDG
    TAA, Cancelo, James
    Son, Jota, Foden, Bowen, Raph
    Ronaldo, Broja

    Steele, Livra, Alonso, Simms

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Leeds v Burnley would concern me so save the FT in case you need to move Raph out / upgrade Livramento for someone better to sub in

  12. BIGREDDOG
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 23 days ago

    Anyone looking at Ronaldo to Kane for free even though other parts of their team looks better to change on paper?

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Depends how Manu/CR7 looks tomorrow.

    2. Danstoke82
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Already did the move. Kane looks better value at the moment. Will probably be proven wrong when Ronaldo goes mad

  13. DavidBadWillie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 23 days ago

    Salah and Origi (don’t ask) to Son and Iheanacho? Watford and Norwich have got to be targeted.

    Will wait for the last minute still

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Nacho off to AFCON after Norwich I believe

      1. DavidBadWillie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 23 days ago

        Yeah just saw. Silly me

    2. DavidBadWillie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Nacho going AFCON

      Forget it. 7.1m to spend on a striker

  14. DA Minnion (Former great)
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 23 days ago

    I hope Foden starts tonight. Have had him a couple of weeks now and gotten nothing yet.

    1. Dammit_182

  15. Champions League Varane
    • 3 Years

    anyone else widcarding? I’m literally 75% sure I am it’s there to be attacked, and then BB 22.

    1. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Maybe If we get the fixtures soon.

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      I’m 90% sure I’m not. Too much uncertainty for me at the moment. Will wait until I need it and target DGWs later in the season for BB, when covid is (hopefully) less of a factor.

      1. FourLokoLeipzig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 23 days ago

        My thinking too

    3. CONNERS
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      I'm waiting for the later triple gameweek/s.

  16. Oldie99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    City lineup guesses? Here’s mine

    Sterling Foden Mahrez
    Gundo Thingy KDB

    1. CONNERS
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Wouldn't be surprised if we get Grealish, Foden and Jesus as the front three.

    1. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 23 days ago

      Do you think Brenford have a chance if 11players vs 6 players?

      1. Firminoooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 23 days ago

        Reply fail. Post above.

    Manchester United players already complaining in the media about the new manager. Shocking performances against poor teams, good luck owning these players.

    1. Hiiler
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 23 days ago

      At what point you can say it's not the managers vault but the players are not just good together. How many different managers have Man united had while they are playing rather badly. At some point you gotta start looking into the mirror instead of blaming others. Managers have an important role I don't doubt it but players have an even more important roles in results.

      And as i said before, I don't think that all man united players are not good individually. Just it seems they don't play well as a team or are overthinking things, because they want to win so badly.

      I myself sold my only Man united player for this GW, and had Salah(c). So even a bad result for Man united will hurt my FPL teams overall ranking badly this gameweek. 😀
