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)

    Transfer in Lucas/Kane or not? Tot-Ars can be postponed easily
    Transfer in Dennis or Bur-Wat is gonna be postponed?
    Take a hit for Ronaldo(C) ? I hate him tbh haven't shown anything of rate lately and he may start only 1/2 games
    If you have at least 13+ fit players like me then maybe roll FT and avoid this headache

  2. Strchld

    Son and Gelhard out
    Gray and Ronaldo (C) in for -4.

    Yes or no?

      Urgh, may join you on Bruno, tempted by KdB tho. Straight to Salah when he's back.

  4. kellamergh
    • 3 Years
    4 days, 18 hours ago

    I don't know why people are looking to get hits in for Ronaldo. He's looked dire in, even, the easier games of recent.

    If I didn't have other priorities, I'd be downgrading, which is what I'm going to have to do, anyway, to bring back Salah.

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

      I agree. It's just the lure of it being Ronaldo.

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

      Indeed. May as well just get Dennis

    3. Esalman
      • 12 Years
      4 days, 18 hours ago

      How about Lukaku?

    4. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      4 days, 18 hours ago

      Need a captain.

  5. DycheDycheBaby
    • 6 Years
    4 days, 18 hours ago

    Diet not fit for the Arsernal game.

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

      *Dier haha (stupid auto-correct)

  6. RamaJama

    So how many DGW players do you plan to have after today's updates?

    Anyone stil free hitting?

    1. Shattered Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 18 hours ago

      Either five or six but the latter requires -4.

      I think I’ll store my chips up until COVID’s settled down.

    2. OLLY G
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 18 hours ago

      Already pressed it. Wish l hadn't. My team wasn't what l was expecting when l activated lol.

    3. kellamergh
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 18 hours ago

      I'm not paying much attention to DGWs now.
      It's a poor week. The SGW players could outscore the DGW players.

      Definitely saving my free hits.

    4. Harvey_27
        4 days, 18 hours ago

        5 without a hit and I think I'm just gonna leave it at that

    5. OLLY G
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 18 hours ago

      On free hit, who do you think is more likely to get a DGW?

      (A) Dennis
      (B) Kane

      Thanks.

      1. Harvey_27
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          As good as 50/50 at this point

      2. WhatWouldYourZlatanSay
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 18 hours ago

        Transferred Maddison in for Son at 1.30 am against my better judgement to avoid price changes. Sigh.

        Sanchez
        TAA-Cancelo-Konsa
        Maddison-KDB-Moura-Bowen
        Watkins-King-Maupay

        (Ramsdale, Bilva, Livra, Tomiyasu)

        Got 4.3 itb
        A. G2G
        B. Change lineup e.g start Bilva
        C. Upgrade Livra for a DGWer and bench Konsa (-4)

        Cheers everyone.

        1. Harvey_27
            4 days, 18 hours ago

            I guess think of it like this: Son's not gonna get you any points for the next GW or two, and Maddison should still play one this week and has four to rearrange so you're head of the curve. For me it's either A or C with Cucurella (despite you having Sanchez)

        2. Shark Team
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          Tot-Ars might be officially postponed before the deadline. Hold those transfers.

          1. Super Saints
            • 5 Years
            4 days, 18 hours ago

            Mount essential

        3. Purse83
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          Doesn’t the cancelled games increase the value of a FH as you could go big on teams like Chelsea and Utd for whom you wouldn’t want their assets long term anyway (and the masses have less DG players)?

          Likewise is Lukaku fit as despite the obvious reasons not to get him he could be a massive differential?

        4. DavidHopkin
          • 11 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          A. Livra, son, Antonio to lampety, olise, CR7 (-8)

          or

          B. livra / son to lampety / olise (-4)

        5. Mahjongking
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          A. Broja >> Dennis
          B. Son >> Bruno
          C. Kane >> Ronaldo(C)

          DDG+

          Jota. Gray. Bowen
          Kane+. Antonio. Broja

          Does Mount outscore Trent this gw?
          looking at Trent armband since I don't think BRE will score

        8. Feed tha Sheep
          • 9 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          Has anyone looked as stats from teams who get a game postponed this season with covid...Generally is it only one game or does a second game usually get postponed? (I understand it’s obviously a case by case basis)

        9. Gizzachance
          • 7 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          Play
          A ramsdale
          B foster dgw, maybe none, would still get ramsdale off bench
          Cheers

              4 days, 18 hours ago

          Hi Guys

          Would you WC this team or take a -8 (Salah, Lacazette and James > Jota, Ronaldo and DGW22 DF (which one please?) 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

        11. Mr Ozil
          • 7 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          Which is better?

          A- Ronaldo + Trossard
          B- Maupay + Trossard

          1. Mr Ozil
            • 7 Years
            4 days, 18 hours ago

            B is Maupay + Bruno

            1. Mahjongking
              • 5 Years
              4 days, 18 hours ago

              I am asking the same qns but will go B myself

        12. CrouchDown
          • 9 Years

          Is Maguire nailed?

            • 3 Years

            think so

          Arsenal & the Premier League are currently in discussions about the possible postponement of the match against Tottenham on Sunday.

        14. Sterling Archer
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          James and Son
          to
          Rudiger and Bruno

          i know Bruno is a rubbish pick but with both departing players injured and no Man u cover it seems sensible, he will be gone for Salah soon enough as Egypt are rubbish

          Coutinho available to start- anyone think could be a good outside punt looking at possible double in 23 and good fixtures after- also against United could do well

          1. ZTF
            • 7 Years
            4 days, 18 hours ago

            Prefer the influence he’ll have on Ings/Watkins

          2. Hairy Potter
            • 6 Years
            4 days, 18 hours ago

            Will monitor, but Mount to Coutinho might be a transfer for me in coming weeks.

          3. BERGKOP
            • 10 Years
            4 days, 18 hours ago

            He's on the watch list for sure

            Gerrard did say he's not match fit so I expect an appearance from the bench
