Additional £1k in FanTeam prize money exclusive for FFScout users


Sponsored by FanTeam


You’ll have no doubt heard by now that 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 fresh 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!

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.

However, there is also £1,000 in prize money available just for Fantasy Football Scout users! The prize breakdown is as follows:

  • 1st: £400
  • 2nd: £200
  • 3rd: £100
  • 4th: £50
  • 5th: £30
  • 6th-10th: £20
  • 11th-15th: £10
  • 16th-20th: £5

There is also £50 in prize money for the FFScout managers who top-score in each of the first two Gameweeks.

****To be eligible for the FFScout prize pool, enter a team in the Second Chance game and complete this form here (Your FanTeam username can be found in the “Profile” section within FanTeam, on the top-right corner of the homepage)****

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)

    Son,Antonio > Fernandes,Dennis -4?

    Don’t want to double up on Kane and Ronaldo and Bruno is an easier way to Salah or KDB.

  6. Thewoodyhorse

    The longer today has gone on the more im feeling like not making any moves this GW and saving my ft. Have 4 DGW players if no more get cancelled but currently without a Watford striker or Ronaldo or DDG.

    What would any of you do with this team?

    Ederson
    TAA - Azpi - Cancelo
    Mount - Moura - Jota - Gallagher - Bowen
    Kane - Antonio

    Foster - Watkins - Johnson - Livra

    1. Camzy
      • 11 Years

      Who are you gonna captain? That will decide your transfer.

    2. Harvey_27
        7 days, 18 hours ago

        Mount or Azpi captain?

    3. Skogen89

      Sterling and Antonio > Kane and Trossard? (-4)

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 3 Years
        7 days, 18 hours ago

        Not sure I'd want to lose both of them. Do like Kane and Trossard though

        1. Skogen89
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 days, 18 hours ago

          I think Bowen covers WH, and its so frustrating owning Sterling since he is benched every third game..

      2. HashAttack
        • 4 Years
        7 days, 18 hours ago

        Thinking of getting rid of both Sterling and Antonio too ... Man City have good fixtures but check Sterling's figures for the reverse ones ... they're not good

      3. Harvey_27
          7 days, 18 hours ago

          Assuming you can't just do Antonio to Kane cos of money, no

            • 8 Years

      4. Ghost86
        • 5 Years
        7 days, 18 hours ago

        Really don’t know want to do here…

        A) Son to Fernandes (no hit)

        B) Watkins/Antonio to Ronaldo -4

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 3 Years
          7 days, 18 hours ago

          Risk it with a. Thoughts above?

        2. Harvey_27
            7 days, 18 hours ago

            A

        3. Thomas Shelby from Birmingh…
          • 2 Years
          7 days, 18 hours ago

          Sell Salah and get who? Money no issue
          Already have Jota, Foden, Bilva, Bowen

        4. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          7 days, 18 hours ago

          Help.

          A. Salah to Mount (c) (-4)
          B. Keep calm and play Keane (nor)

          No Ronaldo, Kane, Dennis for captaincy.

        5. Saintjack01
            7 days, 18 hours ago

            Is bringing Robertson in stupid even though I already have Trent

            1. NABIL - FPL otai
              • 9 Years
              7 days, 18 hours ago

              Assuming you have Jota, maybe. Blocking you from getting back Mo, unless you're thinking of selling Jota later, which is quite risky

          • The Yorkshire Pirlo
            • 5 Years
            7 days, 18 hours ago

            Watford striker for a hit or play Gray away to Norwich?

            1. Harvey_27
                7 days, 18 hours ago

                Burnley game might not happen so I think I'd say Gray (but cards on the table, I have King and Gray and will play both)

                • 4 Years

                Hit ruins the appeal to be honest.

            2. Sturridge Wars
              • 6 Years
              7 days, 18 hours ago

              Which option to bring in?

              A) Bruno & Lukaku
              B) Trossard & Ronaldo/Kane
              C) Mount & Ronaldo/Kane
              D) Mount/Trossard & Lukaku

                • 9 Years

                C with Ron

            3. Twisted Melon
              • 7 Years
              7 days, 18 hours ago

              Tierney > Reguilon -4?

              1. NABIL - FPL otai
                • 9 Years
                7 days, 18 hours ago

                Nope

              2. Harvey_27
                  7 days, 18 hours ago

                  Right now, no way

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  7 days, 18 hours ago

                  Not with a potential DGW loss & injury. Even Lamptey may be better.

                • 11 Years

                Mount / Raphinha / Salah / Bowen / Gray

                Livramento to: ??

                A) Rudiger
                B) Maguire
                C) Reguilon

                A) Son and Antonio -> CR7 and Moura / Mount (-4)
                B) Son -> Bruno for free

                Play Keane / Cancelo?

                  A

                  Exact situation. Cancelo maybe

                  B feels like it will give the least headaches & an easy move for when Salah is back? Antonio has an okay fixture & good upcoming fixtures

                Cor, this non-FH team looked good a week back...!

                DDG
                TAA Alonso Regulion*
                Son* Jota Maddison Bowen

                Steele / Gray Cancelo Livramento

                If DGW off for Spurs, play:
                A) Regulion
                B) Cancelo

                RE: Son/Maddison/Gray
                1) Bench Son, play Gray (save FT)
                2) Son > Fernandes, play Maddison (bench Gray)
                3) Son > Fernandes, play Gray (bench Maddison)

                    Thanks. Not sure on Mount is off after GW23 (although would be an easy sell for Salah, lol).

                Antonio to Kane Or CR7? It's giving me a migraine and would like to make the transfer soon. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

                2 FT and 0.4 ITB. Thinking of keeping Salah and going without CR7 or is that a bad idea..

                A - Son > Mount (c) and roll 1 FT
                B - Antonio & Son > Mount & CR7
                C - Other suggestion?
