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)

      Anyone thinking son to mount (c)?

      I know Mount has several blanks - but it's effectively a placeholder for salah

      1. osceola31909
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Thinking about it. At least he seems likely to play.

        1. JONALDINHO
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Could be a 352 Kante Jorginho Kovacic

    7. smix

      Is the Arsenal Tottenham under threat? Any news of possible postponement ?

      If Ronaldo looks likely to miss a game week would you do

      a) Son & Ron > Bruno & Kane (-4)
      b) Son & Broja > Moura & Dennis (-4)
      c) Son > Bruno
      d) Son > Moura

      1. BrockLanders

        C or A

      2. FPL Laurenzo

    9. BrockLanders

      Any Brighton fans on here give us an insight into Alexis Macallister? Scored 2 in the last game and only £5.3m.

      1. ameisin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Started last 3 games after a run out of the team, and has looked good.

        However,
        - those were only his 3rd/4th goals of the season > hasn't sustained form at any time
        - Potter changes up quite a lot, so wouldn't be surprised to see him not start again
        - both games at home, but Palace and Chelsea have fairly solid defences

        So, it's a punt but he could be a great differential.

        1. ameisin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          FWIW, I'm thinking about doing Silva > Trossard for the DGW, as I think he's more likely to start both, and then can move him on to someone else at a similar price point next week. (Got Villa players and Salah on bench so won't need to worry about transferring them in).

          1. BrockLanders
            • 6 Years
            4 days, 18 hours ago

            Thanks mate. That's a great insight.

            1. ameisin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              4 days, 18 hours ago

              No worries, good luck!

      Where does the Ronaldo roumor come from?

      1. Fuddled FC
        • 10 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        It's not really a rumour I don't think.
        He left training early after picking up a knock

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Yeh, that's not a rumour. But saying he misses the game is a rumour because no such thing has been stated, officially.

          1. Sgt Frank Drebin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            But how do you know he left the training early? Was it official?

      2. TimoTime
        • 2 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Reported on a few tabloids

      3. Nomar
        • 12 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        It's been reported in several newspapers.

        1. chriskon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Yeah but I think these newspapers are the Sun and a next unreliable paper. Wait closer to deadline for more official news.

    11. TimoTime
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      How likely is Kane to have a single game week now?

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 2 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        About 75 percent

      Who to captain for a double now Bruno?

      Brought in Maddy last night as fplstats suggested an imminent price rise that I needed to avoid... only to see his price not go up and the Burnley game now called off.

      Can we just call the whole FPL season off now?

      1. Mattias
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        I'm sure all the Maddison buyers feel the same. Do so at own risk I suppose!

        1. Kloppage Time

          I made the same move. I knew the risks, just have to roll with the punches!

      3. NateDog
        • 1 Year

        Did the same but it's not so bad, still has a game!

    16. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Just seen a quote from Tuchel about them having Kennedy back who is a wing back which casts doubt over Alonso's minutes now on top of everything else!

      1. Hairy Potter
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Kenedy is still at Chelsea? Had a half decent initial loan at Newcastle ages ago. The following season he put in one of the worst performances I've seen by a Newcastle player in the match, against Cardiff.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Right, it would have to be desperation. I'm assuming they're still trying for Emerson.

    17. Mackans

      Is Mount 100% nailed at Chelsea?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          I think there will be better opportunities to use free hits later in the season. I'm considering using my FT to move Broja to Dennis at the moment. Dennis could only have one game this week but he has Norwich in GW23.

    20. Pringle
      • 8 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Who would you put first on your bench? Broja or Coady?

      1. WHUFCSmith23
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Coady.. I would probably start him even

      2. outernational
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        That's a difficult one as they are playing each other. I would normally favor the attacker but Wolves are very strong defensively with clean sheets in their last 3 games against Brighton, Chelsea and Man Utd.

    21. Nespinha

      With Leicester losing a GW, is this still BB worthy?

        If he did get a thigh strain which is a separate injury from his hip flexor one, no way he makes either of these games

      My only dgw players Davies and Dennis.

      If you aren't using your FH, how many dgw players will you have and how many hits taken if any?

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Don't know. As of this moment, 4 with a plan to bring in one more. But 2 are Spuds and one is a Hornet. So I could be down to just Alonso.

    26. winchester
