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)

    Man United under Rangnick:
    Played: 7
    Scored more than once: 1

    1. TheTinman
      • 7 Years

      Due

  2. Strchld

    How likely we have some doubles GW23?

    1. Harvey_27
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Villa I think the most likely, but don't know how likely (and prediction is a mug's game it turns out!)

      • BERGKOP
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Even if called, will any go ahead?

    2. CrouchDown
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Transfers confirmed for -8.

      Livra, Son, Locadia > Maguire, Mount, Dennis

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Maguire???????

    3. Eastman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Any update on Broja?
      Not sure of the -4 for Broja to Dennis any more

    4. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Kane >> Ronaldo(C) if spurs game postponed?

      1. Harvey_27
          7 months, 6 days ago

          maybe for a FT but not for a -4

        • ZTF
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Quite simply, Ronaldo is not an especially dangerous player. He has pens but so does Kane. And United are very disjointed

      2. Abaddon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Exact funds for Son and Wilson to Bruno and Maupay -4

        Giving me this team:

        DDG
        Cancelo, Keane, TAA
        Raph, Bruno(c), Jota, Bowen
        Anonio, Maupay, Dennis

        Bachmann, White, Livra, Salah

        Good enough, or do I FH?

      3. Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        DDG* Foster
        TAA Cancelo Alonso* Dawson Livramento
        Son Jota Foden Gray Bowen
        Antonio Lacazette DCL
        Son&Laca to Bruno(C) and Dennis-4
        Dennis might only have 1 game if Burnley game is off but he has Norwich the week after. Dennis also have Norwich GW23 and Salah back is piece of cake with this plan. Go for it since Ronaldo a doubt? (first plan was to get him)

      4. Tmel
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        1) Salah > Bruno
        2) Antonio > Dennis
        3) Salah & Antonio > Mount & Ronaldo (-4)

        1. Cojones of Destiny

        Shall we organise a vigil for all those who already played their FH this week?

          Lets see after the gameweek

        3. DandyDon
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Please do. Thought it would be fine last night - if no Burnley Leicester game fine. Maddion or Trossard was a close call anyway and swapped Lowton (bench) to Lampety. No issues. However did not think Spurs game would be in doubt losing Kane(c) and Royal a game is a big issue!

        4. Im New Here
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 6 days ago

          I've played it but not feeling bad about it. Still an opportunity

        5. DrNinjamonkey
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 5 days ago

          As completle newbie can you explain why that would be bad? Does FH not let you make unlimted transfer this week?

          Im about to play mine and trying to work out which teams have had cancellations 🙂

      6. Aladdin Sané
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Would you do Watkins to Ronaldo given potential Villa DGW? Other option is Antonio to Ronaldo but not feeling that

        1. DycheDycheBaby
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Ni

        2. DycheDycheBaby
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          No

        3. fricky_
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Nope, Man U are proper leaky, Watkins could easily bag a goal or two

        4. Harvey_27
            7 months, 6 days ago

            Maybe Antonio, especially if FT, but increasingly feeling like a hit wouldn't be worth it

        5. La Roja
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Is Lukaku going under the radar here?

          1. fricky_
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 6 days ago

            He's playing City away, so not really very tempting

          2. Purse83
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 6 days ago

            Exactly what I posted above - convincing myself he’s not fit as nobody is mentioning him.

          3. acidicleo
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 6 days ago

            he is poor!!

        6. fricky_
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Which is better; Digne, Cresswell, Cucurella?

          1. Harvey_27
              7 months, 6 days ago

              Cucurella this week, Digne probably longer term, Cresswell totally acceptable somewhere in between the other two

          2. Shark Team
            • 5 Years

            Rumours about NLD being off. Official statement soon...

                • 10 Years

                Arsenal spurs

              3. Sterling Archer
                • 5 Years
                7 months, 6 days ago

                NLD

                • 5 Years
                7 months, 6 days ago

                • 7 Years
                7 months, 6 days ago

                NLD = Arsenal vs Spurs

            2. Ron_Swanson

              Depends on the beholder

          4. DA Minnion (Former great)
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 6 days ago

            It's getting ridiculous now.
            Burnley sell their top striker , then don't have enough players to field this weekend.

            1. DycheDycheBaby
              • 7 Years
              7 months, 6 days ago

              We don't though :'(

            2. Eh, just one more thing ...
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              7 months, 6 days ago

              They had no choice in selling Wood, his release clause was triggered.

            3. BERGKOP
              • 11 Years
              7 months, 6 days ago

              I don't understand the multiple comments about this. Clubs selling players to get out of games...come on!

            Does Foster replace Bachmann?
            I need to free up some funds and want to downgrade 1 of my playing Keepers (rest of team is solid).
            I want Foster, although accept the double isn't ideal for chances of clean sheets (and Burnley v Watford might be postponed), but Watford have oustanding fixtures to schedule, so they could double again soon.
            Do you think Foster gets his place back straight away?

            1. TheTinman
              • 7 Years
              7 months, 6 days ago

              I doubt it

              Bachmann says you ain't seen nothing yet in terms of his performance...

              • 6 Years

              Bachmann is #1

                • 11 Years
                7 months, 6 days ago

                As far as I remember BTO only reached No 2 (and yes, I know you were referring to the goalie)

          6. Fuddled FC
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 6 days ago

            if NLD is off

            a) Son > Bruno (DGW)
            b) Broja > Dennis (DGW in doubt)

            1. Harvey_27
                7 months, 6 days ago

                a) because at least Broja might play, Son won't and is also more money not doing anything for yer

                • 7 Years
                7 months, 6 days ago

                A. Though I'm not keen on Bruno either.

              Okay so..

              Salah, Son, Edouard >> Sterling Bruno Dennis -8?

              7 months, 6 days ago

              Time for the ultimate banter play with triple Watford defence on a FH?

              Highest scoring defender is Cathcart with 19 points (1.2 PPM).

              1. La Roja
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                7 months, 6 days ago

                That would just a piss take

                • 5 Years
                7 months, 6 days ago

                Just had a look and they haven't kept a CS all season.
                Not certain I'd back them to suddenly churn out 2 on the bounce.

                1. DeuloRad
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years
                  7 months, 6 days ago

                  Who's asking for them to churn out 2 on the bounce? Cancelo can only manage one this GW.

              Best benchable defender to replace Livra?

              1FT and £2.2m in the bank, but keen to not have benching headache or play 5 at the back going forward, so don't want a big upgrade.

              Im guilty of this to but it is interesting that for the sake of FPL we are all very willing to accept a very inferior product in terms of the games themselves. the london derby is one of the best fixtures on the calendar and one surely we would like to see with two full strength teams?

                But we're not going to get a better product when teams are playing 4 times in 8 days later in the season to fit in all the postponed games.

              Who exactly are we meant to captain here when all of the good DGW options have one of their games in doubt…

                  Either someone reliable who may or may not have a DGW or someone reliable with a single GW or just a mad, chaotic punt

                assuming Mount blanks vs MCI, would you expect Trent to outscore Mount vs bha?

                I don't see BRE scoring so looking at Trent(c) and be done with it
