Enter FanTeam’s £100k half-season Premier League Fantasy game for free


Sponsored by FanTeam


FanTeam are staging a ‘Second Chance’ Premier League Fantasy game for the latter half of this season, starting from Gameweek 22 on January 14th.

This gives a further chance for managers to win a huge cash prize if their original season-long team has already fallen way behind.

And, remarkably, it’s completely free to play!

Even Big Sam is on board for this one…

There is a guaranteed prize pool of £100,000 in this Fantasy tournament, with £20,000 going to the winner and money for anyone finishing in the top 4,000.

WHAT ARE THE SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES TO FPL?

Here’s the great news: anyone with any sort of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) experience should be able to pick up FanTeam’s game without issue. The rules, scoring and prices are very similar, shown in detail below.

It’s essentially FPL but with huge cash prizes. Given that paid entry mini-leagues are now strongly discouraged by the Premier League, the FanTeam game offers Fantasy managers a legitimate opportunity to make money from their management expertise.

Unlike the main FanTeam game, this involves building a team of 11 players rather than a squad of 15. Therefore the 100.0m budget is now down to 80.0m. There must be at least one goalkeeper, three defenders, two midfielders and one forward.

A maximum of three players from a single Premier League team can be selected.

One free transfer is allowed each Gameweek, with every additional transfer costing minus four points. FanTeam managers have one Wildcard to use, allowing unlimited free transfers during its week of activation.

Additionally, a captain and vice-captain has to be nominated every week; the player handed the armband will score double points.

All sound very familiar? That’s because the two games are largely the same – although there are a handful of differences to watch out for.

KEY RULES DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FANTEAM AND FPL

  • Player prices can rise and fall based on form and in-game transfer movement but, unlike in FPL, a player’s ‘sell price’ is the same as their ‘purchase price’.
  • Other than the Wildcard, there aren’t any chips in FanTeam.
  • There is no limit to how many free transfers you can save up, unlike FPL allowing no more than two.
  • The ‘Safety Net’ feature makes up for the lack of substitutes. If your player doesn’t start a match, he’ll automatically be replaced by the next-priced (descending) starter in that team’s position who did. For example, if midfielder Mohamed Salah was rested, he would be switched for a cheaper Liverpool midfielder who played, like Sadio Mane.

HOW DO PLAYERS SCORE POINTS?

Seasoned FPL managers should have no problem in adjusting to FanTeam and running a squad with its familiar scoring system, shown above.

KEY SCORING DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FANTEAM AND FPL

  • There is no Bonus Points System, which is replaced by plus/minus points (+0.3/-0.3) if a team is winning/losing during the period a player is on the pitch.
  • Goalkeepers get 0.5 points for every save made, unlike the one point awarded in FPL for increments of three stops.
  • Committing a foul that leads to a free-kick goal or converted penalty is penalised by minus two points.
  • Midfielders and forwards get an extra point for completing the full match.
  • Shots on target that don’t end up as goals are rewarded (+0.4 for midfielders and forwards, +0.6 for defenders)

    What to do here? Probably will not have 11 starters and don’t have any bench...

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      James to Matty Cash or Targett.

      Captain on Watkins.

    2. Maddamotha
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      I expect Foden to be benched as well.

        sorry, but that's just rubbish

          • 3 Years

          It is most certainly not. I also expect that. No Phill.

        2. Maddamotha

          Lol why? Short turn around.

        Thanks mate

    4. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Why pick a Man City mid?

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        This is my team with a -4. Decided against bringing in DDG for Ramsdale last week so rolled the transfer.

        1. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
          • 9 Years
          5 months, 28 days ago

          OK

    5. PascalCygan
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Is this is a FH or WC?! Great team

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        This is a team with a -4 this GW. 🙂

    6. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      WC or FH team?

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        -4 team. Used first FH in 19.

    7. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      She looked better after a few drinks.

  3. FantasyClub
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Can someone please clear up the picture for me and tell me why Bavies is preferred to Reg other than price?

    1. DavvaMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 28 days ago

      I am also stuck as to which one to pick from Reg and Davies...anyone?

    2. RedRo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 28 days ago

      I'd prefer Reg if affordable. Davies could be very short term - I'd be surprised if Spurs don't try and bring in a LCB in January.

    3. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      He isnt. Simple as that

    4. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Dier is the best anyways. Most pts, Regs would be good if he was more fit and played every game

    5. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Price

    6. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Answered your own own question mate.

  4. RedRo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Stupid to be considering Konsa instead of Cash/Targett? Feels a little safer in terms of minutes than Targett and I don't like that if Cash gets booked he'd miss the (probably) Burnley game.

  5. Mr Ozil
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Any updates on Degea?

    Seen somewhere that he didn’t train yesterday

    1. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Well, mostly speculation probably stupid speculation. You can't do anything about it now anyway...

  6. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Don't gamble

    1. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years

      Big Sam would sell his soul for a slurpy

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Wise words indeed

    3. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Tell that to Pep

    4. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      This, spend money on booze and drugs

  7. Kodap
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    If Maddison is declared fit today, how does this look as a -4?

    1. James > Ben Davies
    2. Bilva > Maddison

    1. DavvaMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Yes looks good, if Maddison is fit, I am not sure he will play IMO.

    2. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Solid, will be common moves ... at least until DGWs are announced and everyone plumbs for Lowton instead of Davies

  8. Cheeky Onion
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    1 FT & 2.0m ITB - Will have to make my moves by midday tomorrow

    DDG
    Cancelo - TAA - Reguilon - James*
    Foden - Silva - Bowen - Mount - Martinelli
    Ronaldo

    Bachmann - White - Watkins - Locaida*

    A) James > Tierney/Veltman/Lowton
    B) Locaida + James > King + Tierney/Veltman/Lowton (-4)

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      B Lowton

  9. Matjes_taet
    • 4 Years

    A) with Lowton

  10. Lucky Z
    • 4 Years

    Guys, just relax there are 2 more days until GW21 deadline!

    1. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Announce the DGWs!!!!

  11. DavidBW
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Which midfielder to sell?

    Which combo to sell and buy?

    A Odegaard
    B Smith Rowe
    C Bernardo

    Other mids are Foden and Son.

    To which midfielder?

    1 Jota
    2 Bowen
    3 Maddison

    People who answer will enter a draw to win a trip to the Bahamas.

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      First I would sell A cause twi ars atm is too much, then C. Keep B. Would bring Jota for sure and stay away from Maddison at all cost. Also Bahamasss mamassss

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 28 days ago

      B2. Jota can wait one more GW (Firmino prob starts)

    3. Peter O'Hanraha-hanrah…
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      C1

  12. Tonyawesome69
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Salah owners, are you looking to keep for 1 more GW against an exhausted Chelsea team or looking to sell for the likes of Son?

    1. Lucky Z
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      I would keep if still have

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        Same here. Dont buy dont sell situation this gw.

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 28 days ago

          He is definitely don't buy. He is a potential sell though if you need funds for DGW players and factor in games beyond this upcoming GW

    2. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Keeping this week

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Was planning to sell but may keep and buy DGW players instead.

    4. Mr Ozil
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Keeping for this week

    5. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      For this week, don't buy don't sell

    6. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Selling. I fancy targeting the Spurs v Watford game, need to sell him in order to do that.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        Yeah that was my original plan before watching the Chelsea game last night. Still leaning towards selling.

  13. Hypnos
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Bogus season so far.

    Forgot transfers for this week and ended up with Lacazette (C) and Foden (VC), if this was the week I'd make a small push for myself I didn't think it would be the one I paid absolutely no attention towards and did not deserve in any sense.

    1. Rocket Raccoon
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      My wife just does something to her team four times a season. She’s still behind me but still ahead of most in our mini leagues. Sometimes you just need to leave your team and be patient. You picked those players for a reason and every dog has his day…

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        Dont know about the team but soind like you picked yourself a good wife.

        1. Rocket Raccoon
          • 11 Years
          5 months, 28 days ago

          I think her insistence on captaining Salah has helped. Yes, she’s a good lady.

          1. iL PiStOlErO
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 28 days ago

            Way to go. Shes a keeper like our friend Mo(except afcon ofc).

  14. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    What are the chances that the trolls announce the DGWs bang on deadline? Didn't they do that last season.

    1. Rocket Raccoon
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      They do.

    2. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Yeah they did. Can see it happening again the closer we get to deadline.

  15. DA Minnion (Former great)
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Lads looking for a defender 4.6 or under.
    Best suggestions with potential doubles in mind.

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Spurs

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Lowton, Davies/Dier, Thomas

    3. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Maybe Guehi or Burnley guys if they could keep cs bit that is hardly an option. Check out Dier or White

    4. RedRo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Lowton

  16. lilmessipran
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Will they announce the double gw fixtures before the deadline?

    1. Rocket Raccoon
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      No one knows. Didn’t last year. But they won’t do it to screw FPL players, they’ll do what’s best for the punters and clubs when it comes to arranging the games.

    2. mdm
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Yes. Today or tomorrow will be announced

      1. St Pauli Walnuts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        What you basing that on mate?

  17. Rocket Raccoon
    • 11 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    So, who will you get from each team if they have a double? For some teams there is so much dross I don’t think I’ll get anyone from em anyway…

    1. RedRo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Will probably just get Cash for this one and free hit for 22. Watkins and Maddison (pending injury updates) could be good options too.

    2. Gandalf
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Ben Crellin got it right last year so keeping up to date on his productions a good idea in case they do the same and announce after the deadline

      1. Gandalf
        • 11 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        Spreadsheets*

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Held onto Watkins & Cash through Chelsea & blank for this. Targeting Maddison if fit, maybe Robertson GW22. Thats pretty much it. Have King, Son, Reguilon.

  18. Lord of Ings
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Would you start city double defence vs arsenal?

    1. RedRo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Depends what the alternatives are I guess but I wouldn't see it as a big problem (especially assuming one is Cancelo as he doesn't really count)

      1. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        I am. Arsenal haven't scored vs City in their last 5 meetings

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      I wouldnt.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      I don't see why not. Depends on the other options you have

    4. Simon69
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      100% yes

    5. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Leicester scored 3 against City and could have had another 3. Brentford went close. I don't think double defence for any team is justified at the moment.

  19. iL PiStOlErO
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    What to do what to do? Best transfers here? Ideally would love to get rid of Rudi, Bilva and Dennis cause of afcon...

    DDG 3.9
    TAA Rudi Cancelo Dier Tierney
    Son Jota Bilva Bowen D. Luiz
    CR7 Dennis Broja

    2ft, 2.2m itb

    1. Cheeky Onion
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Dennis > Watkins
      Rudi > Lowton
      Bilva > mid w/DGW

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        Looking at something similar yes, just not sure about that burnley def.

  20. DAZZ
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 28 days ago

    Don’t get me wrong, i know the risks selling Salah, but my word, i watched the Watford West Ham game, and i just feel Son and Kane can run riot against that backline, they constantly look all over the place, Kane and Son are the best captaincy options this week

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Yeah, I'm very tempted to sell Salah to get Kane.

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Like for the last two weeks. Sonny(C) locked and loaded, that tactic served me well so far.

    3. BIGREDDOG
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Considering Ronaldo to Kane for a hit and captaining him. Because I still haven’t learnt my lesson.

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 28 days ago

        You know what happens next...haunaldo

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 28 days ago

          *Haulnaldo

    4. Lord of Ings
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Kane (c) all the way.

    5. Tonyawesome69
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      Watford had 1 training session before that game but I agree Watford are defensively poor. Conte needs to be more aggressive compared to the Soton game

  21. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

      Wouldnt buy Bernardo now. Dont think I'd want Tierney til GW28 (City, Spurs, 2x blanks). Dennis AFCON after Norwich. Rest looks good

      Dennis off to Afcon soon > King
      Antonio/Bowen double up might be too much > Watkins
      Bilva > Jota
      Expensive backline Dias > Lowton

      Remove Dennis (AFCON), Bernardo (hot streak is over) and Tierney (better options with potential extra games)

    Is Emerson more nailed than Reg?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years

      Not sure. Regs would be without injuries and if he is more fit.

    2. Tonyawesome69

      Depends if Doherty leaves in Jan. Both are rotation risks at the moment imo

    1. Tonyawesome69

      It's a home game. He can turn up to the hotel or OT later

      These rumors of him not playing have me concerned.

      He's a ML differential for me, plus took him in for a hit.

      Surely need more than 14 players in the match squad?

    Hi,

    I'm currently on this team:
    Ramsdale (Sanchez)
    Livra - Cancelo - TAA (Rüdiger, White)
    Bilva - Foden - Bowen - Jota (ESR)
    Maupay - CR7 (C) - Watkins

    Bit iffy fixtures for next week, but obviously that happen every now and then. I'm going to move at least ESR, because although his scoring form is excellent it may take time for him to start regularly again. Should I stick to this team for GW21 in order to have 2FT for GW22?

    1. FinnGooner
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 28 days ago

      I'm moving ESR now or before GW22.

    Today and tomorrow is a working day so fixtures likely published.

    But we've largely worked out what could happen to influence transfers for gw21 anyway and gw22 looks best for major changes.

    Harry Winks: Anyone have a view on his upcoming game time? Played well in recent appearances.
