Scout’s Fantasy5 mini-league winner selects Gameweek 22 picks


Sponsored by Fantasy5


They think it’s all over. It is now.

In November, Fantasy Football Scout unveiled a nine-week battle that pitted ten staff members and Pro Pundit experts against each other. To determine who truly had the best eye for a Fantasy player, the FFS Challenge mini-league took place between Gameweeks 12 and 21.

The final winner is revealed below and – to prove that Fantasy5 is most certainly not over – that person will be revealing their five picks for Gameweek 22.

To have a chance of winning £10,000 in this completely free-to-play game, all you need to do is 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 Saturday 15 January.

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

A small prize was up for grabs but, more importantly, so were bragging rights. Below the ‘how to’, you can see which players the Scout winner has selected for Gameweek 22.

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 22 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 Leicester City
  • Aston Villa v Manchester United
  • Liverpool v Brentford
  • West Ham United v Leeds United
  • Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal

Anyone who manages to pick successful outperformers from each match will be in the money. Competition is limited to one entry per person per round. Full terms and conditions are here.

SCOUT’S RESULTS FOR GAMEWEEK 21

Gameweek 21’s challenge saw all five matches take place, with several of the most-backed either blanking (Cristiano Ronaldo, Trent Alexander-Arnold) or not featuring at all (Ollie Watkins).

However, the following nine players successfully exceeded their assigned points target: Mads Roerslev, Anthony Gordon, Enock Mwepu, Alexis Mac Allister, Dan Burn, Allan, Stuart Dallas, Jack Harrison and Joao Moutinho.

This brought success for four of the ten FFS competitors, with Enock Mwepu chosen by Neale and Tom and Stuart Dallas picked by FPL Marc. Impressively, Az backed both.

FINAL STANDINGS

Deputy Editor Tom Freeman led from the very start and never let go, despite early challenges from Sam and Neale.

As a Hall of Famer with an exemplary Fantasy Premier League (FPL) track record, having finished in the top 1k on five occasions and the top 10k on three more, it’s perhaps no surprise that Tom emerged as the victor.

Down at the bottom, FPL Nymfria notched up one successful pick and only came last because of FPL Marc’s late form. Scoreless during a hopeless first seven rounds, he ended on a respectful score of three.

Thanks to everyone for taking part – Fantasy5 will continue to run as normal and is a fun game to be played alongside FPL.

Congratulations to Tom for your prize and bragging rights. Here is his selection for Gameweek 22:

    Having an issue where I cannot log into the FPL website from iPhone, only from laptop.

    I don’t get an error message or password incorrect message (login details are definitely correct). It just seems to refresh the page when I click “login”. Anyone ever had this issue before or know a way round it?

    Have uninstalled app, cleared cookies, restarted phone etc.

          The manager is here and the first question is on team news...
          "That's a difficult question to answer. Like all clubs, injuries and COVID are all round every Club, and our Club as well. It's a difficult time of year and a busy programme as well."

            No comment on Coufal. Is this good or bad?

                Nope, Coufal is definitely playing

                  I don't own Coufal btw

                    What I meant was its less of a tension for people who don't him. It's not that he has been hauling and the Hammers have been keeping cleanies.

          Would you WC this team or take a -8 (Salah, Jesus and James > Jota, Ronaldo/Kane and Regulion) instead (FH already used in GW21)

          Ramsdale De Gea

          Rudiger Cancelo James Mitchell Tsimikas

          Salah Bernardo Saka Bowen Mbeumo

          Jesus Lacazette Dennis

          1.5 ITB 1 FT

          Any ideas would be welcomed

          1. NABIL - FPL otai
            • 9 Years
            16 days, 21 hours ago

            When in doubt, save FT

        5. Champions League Varane

          What to do with Son Johnson and Dalot on BB?

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 5 Years
            16 days, 22 hours ago

            Expect zero points.

            1. james 101

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            16 days, 22 hours ago

            Probably a minus points somewhere

        6. james 101
          • 9 Years
          16 days, 22 hours ago

          1. Are you Free Hitting GW22?

          2. How many DGW players will you play?

          1. Boly Would
            • 5 Years
            16 days, 22 hours ago

            No.
            4 at the moment, will probably be 5 by Friday.

            1. james 101
              • 9 Years
              16 days, 21 hours ago

              5 is solid

              Considering FH at playing 9 or so dgwers

          2. NABIL - FPL otai
            • 9 Years
            16 days, 21 hours ago

            No
            4 atm. Maybe 5 if I replace Son or Salah

          3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 5 Years
            16 days, 21 hours ago

            4 if Ronaldo is fit. 5 based on further news

          4. The Mentaculus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            16 days, 21 hours ago

            No
            4 (Reguilon, Alonso, Maddison, Daka/Dennis)

          5. Nobodinho
            • 7 Years
            16 days, 21 hours ago

            Undecided but probably no

            4 including Son

          6. Arteta
            • 6 Years
            16 days, 21 hours ago

            No.

            At least 5 or 6, depending on my next transfer.

            1. Men in green tights
              • 3 Years
              16 days, 21 hours ago

              Not sure at the moment only 2 dgw players

        7. Jafooli
          • 9 Years
          16 days, 22 hours ago

          Will FPL be returning our entry fee for this farcical season?

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!

              Hope you claimed compensation for interest lost also?

              (That comment works on at least two levels)

            What fee did you pay the FPL site to register your team?

          3. NABIL - FPL otai
            • 9 Years
            16 days, 21 hours ago

            I expect some discount for next season

        8. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          16 days, 21 hours ago

          Which move looks like the best one?
          A. Son & Antonio > KDB & Dennis (-4)
          B. Salah & Wood > Ronaldo & Maddison
          C. Salah & Son > Maddison & Tielemans
          D. Son > Sterling/Maddison/Raphinha
          E. Save FT (play Tierney)

          Thinking A or E atm.

          1. Nobodinho
            • 7 Years
            16 days, 21 hours ago

            Yea think A is good

              • 9 Years
              16 days, 21 hours ago

              Thanks. Sorry B & C also for a hit

          2. The Mentaculus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            16 days, 21 hours ago

            Might as well keep Wood for the double. Can you do Salah & Son to Maddison & KDB/Sterling?

            1. NABIL - FPL otai
              • 9 Years
              16 days, 21 hours ago

              Yes I can do Salah & Son to KDB & Maddison (-4).

              Wish I can do Son to KDB straight swap, but I can't. You don't think Son to Sterling is good?

              1. The Mentaculus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                16 days, 21 hours ago

                I've been looking at both. My gut feel was to go for Sterling, but the benchings against Leeds & Brentford are a bit concerning. Despite KDB's (historical) fitness issues he now seems to be playing every game & therefore makes a more reliable captaincy option for GW23-5. Its close though & I may still decide to gamble on Sterling. Maddison will be my captain for 22 so I obviously like the moves that include him too

                1. NABIL - FPL otai
                  • 9 Years
                  16 days, 21 hours ago

                  Yeah Sterling looking great these days. Should be first on PK with no Mahrez but yep the odd benching can be frustrating.

                  Heck I can even get both Sterling and kdb.. really not feeling DGW mids atm. Maddison is good but team might struggle and poor fixtures to come. I think Raph can do great as well. And then there's a little magician to consider later.

                  I really feel like saving FT to have greater flexibility next GW but yeah look stupid to leave 25m on bench for nothing.

            why would WHU Leeds be off?

            If it is, I'd probably have to. Is there any reason for it to be off though?

          Who to lose for Dennis?

          A. Ronaldo
          B. Antonio
          C. Watkins
          D. Hold

            D for me in your position. You have a good DGW captain option, a player with a good fixture and more to come, and a player with a potential DGW next week.

            Antonio or hold. Definitely not Watkins

            Its Everton v Leicester thats been postponed so only one game which has been played.

          Why are so few people Free Hitting in dgw 22?

          1. The 12th Man
            • 8 Years
            16 days, 21 hours ago

            Probably better weeks to use it. Most already have the key players.

            Uncertainties due to games getting cancelled at any time, doubles don't look very juicy.

            Most single game week players of high ownership have a great Fixture so you’ll end up free hitting and keeping half your team anyway

            For example I already own 2 Liverpool, Bowen, Antonio and Ronaldo

            Then there is cancelo who most will also include on free hit because he can punish in any game

          4. Drumandbaines123

            Because there is a lack of decent doublers and many of the popular single gameweek players have good fixtures.

            The popular SGWers (TAA, Jota, Bowen, Antonio, recently added Evertons) all have brilliant games. Sprinkle that with a couple of already owned DGWers (Spurs defender, DDG, CR, Chelsea defence, Watford forward) and you don't have too many slots left to fill. FHing to change 2-4 players doesn't seem like a big win.

          How can we be sure that there’s not only 1, but 2 better DGWs coming up to spend our FH/FH/WC in?

          1. Hiiler
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            16 days, 19 hours ago

            We can't be sure about that, but we can be sure that GW 22 double is not so good double as doubles go. Since there might be postponements and doubke fixtures aren't great.
